The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles. – Jeff Cooper, Art Of The Rifle

What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms. – Thomas Jefferson in a letter to James Madison

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves. – William Pitt the Younger, Speech in the House of Commons, November 18, 1783

This week’s winning essay is Stately McDaniel Manor’s Schools and Concealed Carry: Overregulation and Micromanagement . It is a characteristic of bureaucracy that even in pursuit of common sense, desirable goals they almost always manage to gum up the works! Mike McDaniel’s excellent piece does a fine job of showing how that can work. Here’s a slice:

Bernie Sanders

Marxist economist says Sanders will “double your income” – seriously!

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

The country’s largest Marxist organization Democratic Socialists of America, are completely in the tank for their comrade Bernie Sanders.

berniesocialist

DSA runs Labor for Bernie, People for Bernie and form the backbone of his campaign in many parts of the country. The Marxists are doing everything they can to get their man in the White House.

Marxist economist Gerald Friedman

Marxist economist Gerald Friedman

The latest piece of pro-Bernie Sanders propaganda comes from UMass Amherst economist and DSA member Gerald Friedman. According to the Communist Party’s Peoples World:

A major left economist has just completed an analysis of what the budget might look like under a President Sanders and gives it the thumbs up when it comes to jobs, growth, and equality.

People’s World obtained a copy of the new report which is just being released titled, “What would Sanders do? Estimating the impact of Sanders programs.” It is the work of economics professor Gerald Friedman and compiles two dozen of the major proposals released by the Sanders campaign…. It is the first complete overview of what could be expected if the Sanders plan was implemented in full.

Needless to say Senator Sanders’ program of ever increasing spending and taxation will lead to bounteous milk and honey for all.

With an ambitious $14.5 trillion dollars of investments, the agenda set out by Sanders is fully paid for with more than $16 trillion dollars of anticipated revenues. Through a combination of a 1 percent wealth tax on fortunes valued at more than $21 million, a financial transactions tax, lifting the cap on the Social Security payroll tax and extending it to dividend and capital gains income, a 4.75 percent employer payroll tax, as well as a host of other measures, Sanders’ plan would not only boost growth but also eliminate the budget deficit.

Among the big ticket spending items are a $1 trillion infrastructure plan – the Rebuild America Act – a $750 billion College for All program, an across-the-board Social Security increase totalling almost half a trillion, and Medicare for All – a $10 trillion rollout of healthcare for every American.

Putting paid to GOP claims that only tax cuts for the wealthy can deliver growth, Friedman demonstrates that Sanders’ massive public investments would act as a giant stimulus on the economy. Government output is predicted to spur businesses to hire and encourage workers to spend more, thus generating the need for even more hires – sparking a virtuous circle of growth….

By 2026, the expected unemployment rate would be 4.0 percent, rather than the currently forecast 5.4%. With more than 23 million new jobs, in economic terms this means that full employment would be reached by the end of Sanders’ second term.

It represents more than a doubling in real per capita income. Not only will more Americans be working, they will also be making more money.

The Marxists do realize that this Nirvana could be sabotaged by economic reality… but they’re going for it anyway.

As Friedman makes clear, “The Sanders program would, of course, face political obstacles to enactment.” Economic obstacles could also abound “if the Federal Reserve moves aggressively to abort the [Sanders] economic expansion by reducing monetary growth and raising interest rates.” There’s also the possibility of a strike by capital in which raising wages leads businesses to refuse new investment or to make further hires.

These are all the perils of attempting to implement an alternative to the current finance-dominated system of casino capitalism. In the words of Friedman, “In the end, success or failure rests on the strength of the political forces behind a Sanders Administration.” Acknowledging the hurdles doesn’t mean it isn’t worth a try though.

So if this plan fails, which it inevitably will… the socialists already have their scapegoat ready.

sanderscommie

The DSA Marxists know Sanders’ plan is utter garbage. They know Sanders’ plan is merely to achieve power, not to actually help Americans grow richer.

DSA believes in the total elimination of private business. According to DSA National Political Committee member David Green, writing in  Democratic Left, Spring 2007, page 10:

Our goal as socialists is to abolish private ownership of the means of production.

So apparently does their comrade Bernie Sanders. How is higher taxation and increased burdens on business going to double your income American voters?

The answer is that it won’t. And it’s not intended to. This plan is to get your vote…. to get socialists into power… and then destroy what’s left of your liberty.

That’s what socialists do folks. And that’s what Bernie Sanders and Democratic Socialists of America intend to do to you.

Beyonce Goes All In On RACISM: Honors Black Panthers… Hates On Cops

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

B1

Several of the backing dancers posted this image online following their performance demanding ‘Justice 4 Mario Woods’ a black man shot dead by police in San Francisco in December of last year.

Racism sells. Beyonce is proof of that at the Super Bowl this last weekend. Rudy Giuliani is right… her performance was disgraceful and a slap in the face to every cop out there. This is real life, not black Hollywood. The performance promoted militant violence and was dangerous just as Giuliani said. Beyonce and her dancers dressed in militant black leather with bandoliers and Black Panther-style berets. They utilized the Black Power salute and performed Beyonce’s Formation, which is a black pride, Black Lives Matter, uber racist anthem if I’ve ever heard one. It also accuses cops of killing blacks and is just vile and raunchy beyond belief. The singers formed an X in deference to Malcolm X, who was a black radical revolutionary involved with the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee and was also a member of the Nation of Islam. Nice. You know who I’m disappointed in? Bruno Mars. He dressed in the same garb as Beyonce and a majority of the performers were of course black… except for Coldplay. This was the most racist, cop-hating atrocity yet.

All this Black Lives Matter crap where the dancers hold up a sign saying ‘Justice 4 Mario Woods’ is just deplorable. He was a black man shot by police in San Francisco when he would not drop the knife he was brandishing. He was a gang member and had just stabbed someone. Still armed with the kitchen knife allegedly used in the stabbing, Woods was reportedly pepper-sprayed and shot with less-lethal beanbag ammunition, but was still standing and refusing to surrender, according to police. Officers demanded he drop the knife, but Woods moved towards an officer who was approaching him and was subsequently shot 15 times. Gee, another thug in the midst of a crime who gets shot and killed and the activists screamed it was unnecessary. In whose world? He threatened cops after committing a violent crime. In my book, no big loss there.

B2

This was militant racism on show. It obviously took aim at police officers who turned it off during the halftime show and other officers literally turned their backs on the show. I don’t want to see this crap much less have my kids see it. Former Illinois congressman turned radio host Joe Walsh also lashed out after Beyonce’s performance, writing; ‘Beyonce sings anti-police song at halftime after receiving police escort to the Super Bowl. Liberal hypocrite.’ He then added; ‘Halftime at the Super Bowl – an embrace of the Black Panthers & Black Lives Matter and an attack on our Police. Welcome to today’s America.’ Anticipation had been building for her performance after she unexpectedly dropped the music video for the song on Saturday. The video, the most political Beyonce has released, showed scenes of white police lining up against a black teenager and graffiti that reads ‘stop shooting us’. It’s obvious this was done for marketing, but I also believe she backs black militants and a potential racial uprising. It’s despicable. There is a reason that the Black Panthers were named ‘the greatest threat to the internal security of the country’ by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover. And this is paying homage to the Nation of Islam and uber hatemonger Louis Farrakhan as well. Beyonce has gone all the way to the bottom and is scraping evil here. On Friday, Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z, pledged $1.5 million to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Black Power2

Giuliani was simply incensed over the whole display and I don’t blame him one little bit. ‘This is football, not Hollywood, and I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive,’ Giuliani said during an appearance on FOX & Friends Monday morning. ‘And what we should be doing, in the African-American community and in all communities, is build up respect for police officers and focus on the fact that when something does go wrong, OK, we’ll work on that.’

The Super Bowl is supposed to be all American and I hate to break it to the likes of Beyonce, but that includes all races. How would everyone like it if someone did a song honoring the KKK at halftime? That’s akin to what Beyonce accomplished when honoring the Black Panthers and Malcolm X the way she did. Sheriff Clarke expressed his disgust with her as well.

B21

Police were outraged over Beyonce’s performance and I’m not surprised by that. Michelle Obama dressed to salute the same racist theme and sought Beyonce’s approval on her outfit. Shameful. This performance should never have been approved and surely it was the blackest football team in history, the Carolina Panthers, who saw that it was sanctioned. Because Beyonce is black, she got a pass. That’s unjust in the extreme. Those same cops gave her an escort to that game and protected her while she was there. For their efforts, she insinuated they were killers. That arrogant hatred is despicable. She’s definitely aligned with Jay-Z and Kanye West on these issues. Many people boycotted the halftime celebration, if not the whole game over this. I can relate. Beyonce won’t apologize for this – like I said, racism sells.

Black Power3

From the Daily Mail:

The Black Panthers were an infamous armed group that was founded in Oakland in 1966, close to where the Super Bowl is being played this evening, and operated during the Sixties and Seventies.

The group, once dubbed ‘the greatest threat to the internal security of the country’ by FBI director J Edgar Hoover, was formed in 1966 to combat oppression of black people in the U.S.

While previous civil rights activists such as Martin Luther King had advocated a policy of non-violence, the Panthers supported the use of force in order to hit at authorities and protect members.

Malcolm X, born Malcolm Little, was sent to prison in 1946 for larceny and breaking and entering after a life of petty crime and trouble with the law.

But once in prison he discovered Islam and joined the Lost-Found Nation of Islam, dropping his ‘slave’ last name and adopting the letter ‘X’, symbolic of a stolen identity, in its place.

After he was paroled from prison in 1952 Malcolm X went on to challenge the mainstream non-violent civil rights movement of Martin Luther King Jr.

Instead he called on his followers to defend themselves from white aggression ‘by any means necessary’, and advocated black rifle clubs.

His fundamental belief, taken from the teachings of Elijah Muhammad, was that the white man was the devil, and that blacks could never live in harmony with whites.

His autobiography, and numerous public speeches, formed the basis for the black power movement which gained popularity in the 1960s and 1970s.

From KeyWiki.org on the Black Panthers:

The Black Panther Party was a militant African-American organization that “advocated guerrilla warfare as taught by Mao Tsetung and Che Guevara for achieving revolution in the United States.” On April 25th, 1967, the first issue of The Black Panther, the party’s official news organ, went into distribution. In the following month, the party marched on the California state capital, fully armed, in protest of the state’s attempt to outlaw carrying loaded weapons in public. Bobby Seale read a statement of protest; while the police responded by immediately arresting him and all 30 armed Panthers. This early act kindled the fires of the burning resistance movement in the United States; soon initiating minority workers to take up arms and form new Panther chapters outside the state.

And if you were curious what the Black Panthers wanted, here is their 10 Point Program – tell me if this doesn’t sound strangely familiar:

We Want Freedom. We Want Power To Determine The Destiny Of Our Black Community.

We believe that Black people will not be free until we are able to determine our destiny.

We Want Full Employment For Our People.

We believe that the federal government is responsible and obligated to give every man employment or a guaranteed income. We believe that if the White American businessmen will not give full employment, then the means of production should be taken from the businessmen and placed in the community so that the people of the community can organize and employ all of its people and give a high standard of living.

We Want An End To The Robbery By The Capitalists Of Our Black Community.

We believe that this racist government has robbed us, and now we are demanding the overdue debt of forty acres and two mules.

Forty acres and two mules were promised 100 years ago as restitution for slave labor and mass murder of Black people. We will accept the payment in currency which will be distributed to our many communities. The Germans are now aiding the Jews in Israel for the genocide of the Jewish people. The Germans murdered six million Jews. The American racist has taken part in the slaughter of over fifty million Black people; therefore, we feel that this is a modest demand that we make.

We Want Decent Housing Fit For The Shelter Of Human Beings.

We believe that if the White Landlords will not give decent housing to our Black community, then the housing and the land should be made into cooperatives so that our community, with government aid, can build and make decent housing for its people.

We Want Education For Our People That Exposes The True Nature Of This Decadent American Society.

We Want Education That Teaches Us Our True History And Our Role In The Present-Day Society.

We believe in an educational system that will give to our people a knowledge of self. If a man does not have knowledge of himself and his position in society and the world, then he has little chance to relate to anything else.

We Want All Black Men To Be Exempt From Military Service.

We believe that Black people should not be forced to fight in the military service to defend a racist government that does not protect us. We will not fight and kill other people of color in the world who, like Black people, are being victimized by the White racist government of America. We will protect ourselves from the force and violence of the racist police and the racist military, by whatever means necessary.

We Want An Immediate End To Police Brutality And Murder Of Black People.

We believe we can end police brutality in our Black community by organizing Black self-defense groups that are dedicated to defending our Black community from racist police oppression and brutality. The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States gives a right to bear arms. We therefore believe that all Black people should arm themselves for self- defense.

We Want Freedom For All Black Men Held In Federal, State, County And City Prisons And Jails.

We believe that all Black people should be released from the many jails and prisons because they have not received a fair and impartial trial.

We Want All Black People When Brought To Trial To Be Tried In Court By A Jury Of Their Peer Group Or People From Their Black Communities, As Defined By The Constitution Of The United States.

We believe that the courts should follow the United States Constitution so that Black people will receive fair trials. The Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution gives a man a right to be tried by his peer group. A peer is a person from a similar economic, social, religious, geographical, environmental, historical and racial background. To do this the court will be forced to select a jury from the Black community from which the Black defendant came. We have been, and are being, tried by all-White juries that have no understanding of the “average reasoning man” of the Black community.

We Want Land, Bread, Housing, Education, Clothing, Justice And Peace.

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume, among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect of the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute a new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and, accordingly, all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But, when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

Along with militant black power, the Black Panthers wanted communism, by any means necessary. The BPP was credited with coining one of the most offensive slogans of the era: “Off the pig,” which was a crude invitation to kill police officers. Another BPP slogan was “The Revolution has come, it’s time to pick up the gun!” It was out of this culture of militant violence, especially towards the police, that radicals like Eldrige Cleaver gained influence and that the Black Liberation Army eventually grew.

B5

The practices of the late Malcolm X were deeply rooted in the theoretical foundations of the Black Panther Party. Malcolm X was both a militant revolutionary and a role model. The Panthers followed Malcolm X’s belief of international working class unity across the spectrum of color and gender, and thus united with various minority and white revolutionary groups. From the tenets of Maoism they set the role of their Party as the vanguard of the revolution and worked to establish a united front, while from Marxism they addressed the capitalist economic system, embraced the theory of dialectical materialism and represented the need for all workers to forcefully take over the means of production.

While the BPP only flirted with the concept of fully cooperating with white radical groups in order to achieve their goals, several white radicals and leftist groups offered assistance to the BPP due to their shared anti-American worldview. For example, the eighth national convention of the Young Socialist Alliance (YSA) in December of 1968 met in Chicago and featured Black Panther Party speakers. The YSA fully supported armed black guerrilla warfare. “Both Hillary Clinton and Bill Lanh Lee began their political careers as law students at Yale by organizing demonstrations in 1970 to shut down the university and stop the trial of seven Panther leaders accused of ordering the torture and execution of a black youth named Alex Rackley.”

Eldrige Cleaver believed that the success of the struggle ultimately depended on replicating the communist revolutions that had already taken place in other parts of the world. “If you look around the world,” he wrote, “you will see that the only countries which have liberated themselves and managed to withstand the tide of counter-revolution are precisely those countries that have strongly Marxist-Leninist parties.”

Author Paul Berman said, “The scary nature of the Panther movement was easy enough to detect. The paramilitary leather uniforms, the titles like ‘Minister of Information’ and ‘Minister of Defense,’ the jailhouse tone, the apology for rape in Cleaver’s writings, the lapses into anti-Semitism, the assassination campaigns against the police – everything advertised the terror and dictatorship that were bound to spring from Panther power, if the party ever had the bad luck to acquire any.”

B6

Beyonce had the opportunity to reach millions and bring people together. Instead, she deliberately stirred racial animosity and pushed militant black pride above patriotism and love of country. Cops are not indiscriminately killing black people. They have one of the world’s toughest jobs and they put their lives on the line every day for all us… even Beyonce. She brought black liberation politics to the Super Bowl and it was a disgrace.

The choreography wasn’t restricted to the football field; the halftime show was part of a marketing plan that put out messaging across multiple platforms, from social media to mainstream media. Our kids are seeing this and many will be swayed by hate because of it. They will learn to hate cops and love revolution, racial division and militancy. That’s not who we are. It’s ironic that Beyoncd Knowles and Jay-Z owe their success to the capitalist system the leftist Black Lives Matter movement is intent on destroying. Jay-Z’s story of going from rags to riches is well-known, as he went from being a drug dealer in the projects of New York to becoming an entertainment star and entrepreneur. Beyonce is the child of a small business owner and a sales manager for Xerox. Both biographies fly in the face of the Black Lives Matter narrative that black people somehow need to be “liberated” from the free market. Beyonce is making a ton of money from racism and promoting and glorifying black revolutionary movements. Not only does racism sell, hate is pretty profitable as well. This is definitely the cultural rot and decay that Rush Limbaugh referred to.

Trevor Loudon’s prediction for Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

trokoThe big night is here again.

Except for underestimating Marco Rubio, I was pretty close on my calls for last week’s historic Iowa caucuses. I’ve spent some time in beautiful New Hampshire and have  a little feel for the local political climate.

I think Marco Rubio will dip slightly after his weak performance on Saturday night’s debate. Trump support is both softenning and overestimated when it comes to actual voter turnout. The three Governors: Bush, Kasich and Christie, I think will all have very average nights and I think Carly Fiorina will get a small lift. My once second favorite Dr. Ben Carson is  toast. His ungracious performance in light of the Iowa twitter non-scandal has cost him sympathy rather than gained it.

Ted Cruz will again over-perform, but possibly not enough to beat Mr Trump. He has a great ground game and loyal supporters who actually turn up to vote. I think he’ll also get about half of former candidate Rand Paul’s libertarian vote as a bonus. I give Senator Cruz a 30% chance of victory. If the race was 5 points closer, I’d give him 80%

Here’s my prediction for the vote Tuesday based on my contact with people on the ground, a little bit of intuition, and maybe some wishful thinking…

  • Donald Trump 29%
  • Ted Cruz 24%
  • Marco Rubio 13%
  • Jeb Bush 10%
  • John Kasich 9%
  • Chris Christie 7%
  • Carly Fiorina 4%
  • Ben Carson 4%

Let’s see if I’m right. There is so much riding on this… not just for the United States, but for every Western nation.

I hope New Hampshire voters are as wise as those in Iowa were on Tuesday tonight.

Unclaimed

Unclaimed Prizes

Lottery TicketsBY: T.F. STERN | The Moral Liberal

There was quite a bit of chatter going on this past week about the possibility a $63 Million Dollar lottery prize would go unclaimed.  My daughter in law wondered out loud, “Can you imagine finding out you had the winning ticket only to be told you waited too long to claim your winnings.  That would be awful; just think about how you’d feel.”

The idea of missing out on something that big would upset most folks; but then I got to thinking about it from a different angle.  What if you never found out?  The winning numbers were picked; but you never bothered to see if they matched the ticket you purchased; how bad would you feel since you never knew how much money you missed out on?  For all you knew the only money you lost was the two dollars spent on the ticket.

Life is like that for most folks; but this has nothing to do with purchasing a lottery ticket.

Mortality is the ticket we purchased to prove ourselves, to make ourselves eligible for all that God has.  Interestingly, each ticket purchased is a winner; the only losers are those that are not claimed.

Admittedly there are some qualifiers in order to claim your prizes; but rest assured, you did purchase a winning ticket the moment you accepted the Great Plan of Salvation.

C S Lewis on Children of God posterSome folks don’t even know who they are as they go through the challenges of life.  Oh, they might know their parents, grandparents and even a long list of ancestors going back hundreds of years; but do they really know they are children of our Heavenly Father?  Do they understand their royal lineage makes possible an inheritance beyond our ability to grasp?

We are created in His image and, in due time, we’re expected to figure out how to behave according to the commandments and other instructions given via the scriptures and servants of the Lord.  Upon successful completion of our probationary period we are promised all that he has; if that’s not greater than any lottery prize then I don’t know what would impress you.

Once you’ve figured out you’re holding the winning ticket; will it alter the way you approach life?  I would certainly hope so.

Weekly Featured Profile – Ray Siqueiros

KeyWiki.org

Ray Siqueiros

Ray Siqueiros is a Tuscon, Arizona activist and a high school social studies teacher. He is active in the American Federation of Teachers and is a long time member of theCommunist Party USA.

Ray Siqueiros wrote on the death of Communist Party USAleader George Edwards in 2012.

I am so glad I got to meet George 27 years ago. I had just joined the Party and moved to New York where I was able to attend many national Party events. I especially enjoyed the National Labor Committee events, where I could really fathom the idea of Industrial Concentration by rubbing shoulders with the likes of George Edwards, Hosea Hudson, Gus Hall, Henry Winston, and many other greats too long to list here. These heroes of our working class USA modeled confidence, humility, approachability, and plain honesty! I hope to continue in any way-great or small-their stunning example.

Siqueiros runs a branch of the radical Marxist/separatist group MEChA with his high school students and actively encourages them to protest for illegal immigrants.

In Tucson on March 29, 2006, hundreds of students walked out of their high schools with a message of “hear me” or at least “see me.”

Sunnyside High School students parade around the Sunnyside neighborhood with flags and loudspeakers.

At Sunnyside High School, administrators and student organizers were able to shepherd about 600 students into the auditorium to discuss the purpose of the protest and march.

Asked how the students organized so quickly, Ray Siqueiros, a Sunnyside social studies teacher, said, “It’s called technology. It’s called text messaging. It’s called myspace.com.”

Siqueiros, of Sí Se Puede, a group that organizes the annual Cesar Chavez rally, was pleased at the peaceful nature of the day and was optimistic the community would rally behind the students.

“Leave it to our kids to show us how it’s done,” he said. “It’s in tradition with Cesar Chavez. His spirit is alive and well in Tucson. The community, the parents and the school should be very proud of the students…”

Treason doth never prosper, what’s the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it Treason. – John Harrington

Those who believe, and adopt exile, and fight for the Faith, in the cause of Allah as well as those who give (them) asylum and aid, – these are (all) in very truth the Believers: for them is the forgiveness of sins and a provision most generous. – Qu’ran, Surah Al-Anfal, 74

The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam. – President Barack Hussein Obama

This week’s winning essay, The Noisy Room’s Why Is Small Town America Being Inundated With Muslim Immigrants?, is her incisive look at yet another way President Obama is changing America… by flooding heartland America with Muslims from countries where the vast majority of the inhabitants have values and a culture totally inimical to our Constitution as well as our notions of freedom, tolerance and human liberty. Here’s a slice:

Looks like my old stomping grounds in Montana are heating up. People there are not taking Obama’s plan to force refugees on them lying down. There was a protest in Missoula, Montana at 10 a.m. this morning over that very issue. It is just one of many battles brewing out there in small town America.

Small towns in the sparsely populated parts of America are the perfect place to relocate these refugees. Especially, if your agenda includes politically terraforming the country. The West is historically conservative in their politics. Many are Republicans and Libertarians. Even the Democrats hearken back to an earlier time when they were more conservative in nature. Obama and the Democrats can’t have that. They need to have an entire country willing to submit to Marxist diktats. They need areas seeded with those who will vote Democrat and ensure that they stay in power no matter what.

And it’s not just voting demographics that are pushing this move either. I personally believe that there is a warped logic to all of this. That if Islam can be made the predominant religion in America, people will be more easily controlled. That’s insane of course and won’t work, but there you have it. Instead, Shariah law will be implemented and you will see the same atrocities occurring in Europe happen here. The big difference being, that at least for now, Americans are armed and will use those weapons to protect their neighbors, loved ones and country.

Bringing in the refugees also moves forward the Cloward and Piven strategy to overwhelm the system so it will collapse and cause chaos in the streets. These people want to tear the system apart, so they can replace it with something truly heinous. The Obama administration will never admit that this is the plan, but can you honestly look at what is going on today and tell me it isn’t? Our borders are wide open. We are not vetting anyone to speak of and security here in the US is worse than before 9/11.

Refugees1

Communities in states such as Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and Kansas are being infused with Muslim refugees even though they are not wanted by the residents or the local law enforcement. The feds and their leaders are not giving them a choice. Wyoming is the only state currently not participating in the program, but even the governor there wants to jump in it. Living in large cities would be too costly for the refugees and more can be accomplished with seeding them across the plains. In a small town, they can turn everything to their advantage in short order. Since many of our larger cities are already flooded with immigrants from south of the border and from Muslim nations, in many respects they have at least partially fallen to the ploy already. This is the fundamental transformation of America in play. South Carolina, Idaho, Minnesota, North Dakota and Michigan are vigorously fighting against this program and Obama’s ‘change’.

The same entitlements, jobs, lodging and freebies will be given to these refugees in small town America. But that will mean taking more and more away from locals in these same communities. These immigrants bring crime and disease with them. As crime rises, people will leave which will hasten the take over of these towns. At least that is what Obama and his friends hope for. I pray that people dig in and decide to stay and fight if they can.

Which brings me back to Missoula where they had a protest this morning in front of the county courthouse. Refugees are being brought into Helena and Missoula and the people there don’t want them. We’re talking about hundreds of Muslims. Other rallies in Twin Falls, Idaho and Fargo, North Dakota are planned as well. I have friends in Idaho that just won’t stand for this invasion.

It’s the same old story here. NGOs with lots of money and a pro-immigrant agenda are seeking out politicians who can be bought basically, or that can be forced into compliance one way or the other. These individuals, such as Sand Point, Idaho, Mayor Shelby Rognstad, conspire against their constituency until they are forced by the people to back down. The politicians in Missoula seem to have sold out to this movement. Oh, what I wouldn’t give to find out what each of them was offered in exchange for their support in resettling large number of Islamic refugees in their areas.

In our non-Council category, the winner was Tucker Carlson in Politico Magazine with Donald Trump Is Shocking, Vulgar and Right, submitted by The Noisy Room.

Donald Trump has his detractors, but no one can deny that he has struck a chord among many Americans. Tucker Carlson does a wonderful job of exploring why that is, attracting the deranged hatred of some of Politico’s rabid leftists.

Ted Cruz Defends3

Ted Cruz or Donald Trump? Let Jimmy Carter be your guide!

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

A lot of good people, including many friends of mine signed up to support Donald Trump for POTUS. That was understandable when Trump was saying great things about illegal immigration and the media was telling us Ted Cruz couldn’t win.

Now its very clear that Cruz can, and most probably will win, and Donald Trump has revealed himself as more “progressive” than principled.

In my view, restoring the US Constitution would solve the bulk of America’s social, economic and political problems in one fell swoop.

Ted Cruz memorized the entire Constitution at age 14. He has fought several important court battles to preserve it. Senator Cruz lives, eats and breathes the Constitution.

How many times have you ever heard Donald Trump even mention it?

But if you’re still in doubt, America’s second worst ever President should settle the question.

Jimmy Carter prefers Donald Trump… need any more be said?
