NO, IT DOESN’T COME FROM BOTH SIDES!

With the escalating harassment and violence directed at those on the Right, Liberal pundits keep saying it comes from both sides. NO, IT DOESN’T! They then cite Charlottesville and a Tea Partier spitting on Congressman John Lewis and calling him the “N” word. They say the Tea Party was no different than the anti-Kavanaugh protestors.

Let’s start with Charlottesville. This was an “Alt-Right” event. Let’s be very clear, the “Alt-Right” is neither Republican or Conservative. White Supremacy has never been part of the Right. White Supremacy, segregation, KKK, Jim Crow are ALL from the Left. Richard Spenser, who organized Charlottesville, believes we are part of a collective and that our rights come from government. He doesn’t believe in individual Liberty. Conservative Republicans have nothing in common with the Alt-Right. Regardless, that doesn’t prevent the Left from calling everyone on the Right “Alt-Right”, but we can’t allow them to get away with it. Calling us “Alt-Right” is another Big Lie repeated over and over until it’s believed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNsdmvijLfs&t=0s&index=190&list=PL8076D0663C9C3D80

The other Big Lie is that a Tea Partier spit in Congressman John Lewis’s face and that numerous people used the “N” word. I know this didn’t happen because I was there. I was taking a group of Tea Partiers into the tunnels between the Capitol and the office buildings. I was on the steps going into the office building when the group with Lewis arrived. Lewis was followed by Jesse Jackson Jr. with an iPhone in each hand recording everything. It is obvious the group was trying to provoke the anti-Obamacare protestors. As I mentioned, there are tunnels connecting the Capitol and the office buildings. There was no need for them to walk through the crowd of protestors. At one point Lewis stopped and stood in front of a protestor. The crowd was chanting, “Kill the Bill” but no one used the “N” word or spit in his face. Since they couldn’t entrap or provoke anyone, they just made it up. There were hundreds of cameras and cell phones in the crowd, as well as Jesse Jackson Jr’s two, filming what happened. Andrew Breitbart offered a million dollars if anyone had a video proving Lewis was spit on or the “N” word was used. I have no doubt Jesse Jackson Jr. would have been happy to claim the reward……..if he could have.

I can speak with some confidence about the actions of the Tea Party. I traveled to DC seven times during the Obama administration for protests and rallies. I also went to every Tea Party rally within a hundred miles of Los Angeles. I was an organizer of two Tea Parties. Unlike the Left, we never broke a window, looted a store, burned a car, blocked traffic, threw things or hit anyone. We never told our members to “get in people’s faces”. We never told them to harass members of the Obama administration. We told everyone to be peaceful and respectful and they were.

Certainly, there was the odd person, here or there, with a sign that insulted Obama. We always made that person leave or get rid of the sign. Of course, someone would have taken a picture of that person before they got rid of the sign and published it to claim it represented the Tea Party. But these examples were the exception. I’ve often wondered if those people weren’t plants. Our events were always peaceful.

When I took the group of Tea Partiers into the tunnels, the Commander of the Capitol police came over and introduced himself to me. He asked me to keep the group against the walls and not block the halls and to try to keep our voices down because it echoed down there. I told him to tell his officers to let me know if there was a problem and I’d take care of it. He said, “Oh, I’m not worried about you. I’ve never had to arrest one of you and you clean up after yourselves”. Do I need to point out HUNDREDS of Kavanaugh protestors were arrested? Do I need to point out the TONS of trash left them and during the Obama administration by Occupy Wall Street”?
I went to Glenn Beck’s 8/28 Rally in DC. They estimate the crowd as being in excess of 600,000. I sat in the stairs of the Lincoln Memorial because I wanted to see how big the crowd
was. There were no signs, just masses of happy people who love America. Several times I went down into the crowd. It was shoulder to shoulder but no one pushed or shoved. People just moved so you could move through them. People helped others pass through. Mounted police rode through the crowd and people patted the horses and moved aside. And as it broke up, and people left, there wasn’t a piece of paper on the ground.

Can anyone name when the Right rioted to prevent a Liberal from speaking on a college campus? How about hitting people with bicycle locks? Show me where the Right screamed at members of Congress or protested in front of their homes. Or threatened the lives or their children? Or shouted people out of restaurants. Who calls who racists, bigots, homophobes, Islamophobes, Xenophobes, etc? How many on the Left have been censored on social media? How many College Professors are afraid to say they are Liberal? How many Democrat members of Congress have been shot? For that matter, how many mass shooters are Conservatives or members of the NRA?

No, the disrespect, lawlessness, and violence does NOT and NEVER HAS come from the Right. And we can’t allow the media to keep saying it does.

TO MY LIBERAL FRIENDS

I’d like to have a conversation with my Liberal friends.

We Conservatives believe you have a right to your opinion and the right to express it. We may not agree with you but we’d defend your right with our last breath. You, on the other hand, seem quite comfortable preventing Conservatives from expressing their opinions. While I know many of you believe we should be allowed to speak, we haven’t seen any evidence that you are willing to defend our rights. We are being censored and silenced and I see no Liberals speaking in our defense. Why is that?

We believe in fair and honest elections. But every attempt we make to ensure our elections are fair and honest is thwarted by Liberals. Liberals say we are trying to suppress voters. Truthfully, we aren’t. But it’s against the law for non-citizens to vote and millions are. When there are more votes than eligible voters in districts with large numbers of illegal aliens, you know they are. In fact, Liberals have shown they want illegals to vote as many Liberal Mayors have passed laws allowing illegals to vote in local elections. I truly believe if Liberals believed illegal aliens would vote Republican they would do everything possible prevent it. Be honest, you know that’s true. Liberal Governors are signing bills that allow felons to vote. Please tell me how America benefits from felons voting. I suspect they will vote to curb police powers, reduce the number of police officers, lighter sentences, etc. You have to live with this lawlessness too, why do you support this?
We want voter ID to ensure the person voting is who they say they are and are legally allowed to vote. This is a reasonable expectation…..and I believe in your heart of hearts you know that is true. You also know it is a serious disadvantage not to have a valid ID. Why wouldn’t you want people to have one? You know they can’t travel, enter public buildings, buy alcohol, open a bank account, stay at a hotel and many other things……like vote in a union election. Instead of fighting against voter ID, why don’t you help the people who don’t have a valid ID, get one?

Conservatives believe in the rule of law and everyone playing by the same rules. There is little that is more divisive than exempting some groups from laws or rules others must abide by. It isn’t something people can get used to because they witness people committing acts everyday they would be punished for. Conservatives believe in playing by the rules. The DNC understands this and I imagine they laugh all the while they bus people from state to state to vote.

We respect elections. I have no doubt we were as upset by Obama’s election as you are about Trump’s election but we accepted he was our President. We would rather lose elections fairly than win them dishonestly. We accept that Presidents nominate Judges they want. The GOP has seldom tried to stop a Liberal appointment to the Supreme Court. Kagan and Sotomayor had no investigation into their high school years. Both admitted they’d legislate from the bench but received Republican votes. We didn’t shout and scream in the hearings for them. But, trust me, we were every bit as fearful of their rulings as you are of Constitutional rulings. You don’t get to choose every Supreme Court Justice.

Are you really on board with the character assassination of Constitutional Judges that is in full swing now? Do you really, in your heart, believe the accuser who can’t or won’t give the day, place or year of her accusation? Are you really supporting the overturn of our system of justice? Do you really not believe in due process anymore? Of the accused being innocent until PROVEN guilty? Do you question at all, the timing of the accusations? After all, Feinstein had an hour long private meeting with Kavanaugh. And Ms. Ford had already contacted a newspaper and hired a Liberal activist lawyer. Kavanaugh had been on a list of Supreme Court choices since Romney ran. She knew he was in consideration. Why wouldn’t she have contacted Republicans to have him taken off the list. Why wouldn’t she want to prevent his nomination? But, no, this comes out after the hearings and just before the vote.

Liberals are always saying I must get my news from FOX or I’m just repeating what I hear from Rush or Beck or Hannity. I’m told I should get my news from “reliable resources”. Really? What exactly are the “reliable resources”? Who do you think owns all the newspapers, networks, studios, etc? They are owned by a handful of Liberals. And they are staffed 90% plus with Liberals. Why would anyone believe media owned and staffed by Liberals were “reliable resources”? Do you actually believe a company full of Liberals is impartial or objective? Are you impartial and objective?

I find many Liberals dismiss ANY information from what they’ve decided are not “reliable resources”. They don’t argue against the information, they don’t show proof it’s wrong, I doubt they even read it. We don’t expand our minds if we are unwilling to examine both sides of an issue and seek what is true, not what supports our view. I simply ask my Liberal friends to acknowledge what they consider “reliable resources”, may not be so reliable. And I challenge them to prove the information is wrong from the sources they don’t think are reliable instead of just dismissing it out of hand. (BTW, polls show FOX is the most trusted even among Liberals).
May I point out to my Liberal friends that your “reliable resources” won’t report or publish information that conflicts with the Liberal agenda. Both the LA Times and NYTimes have said they won’t publish anything skeptical of Climate Change. That gives you the ability to dismiss information without examining it because it doesn’t come from the sources you accept as reliable.

Recently, a young man commented on my blog and told me I needed to research opposing opinions and compare them. Apparently, he didn’t actually read my blog. I’m sure I’ve done more research of the Liberal side than he has of the Conservative side. First, I’d like to ask how it’s possible not to know the Liberal side of any issue? It’s the only side presented in newspapers, on the news and opinion shows, in our Universities, by most government agencies, etc. We can’t even avoid it in entertainment. Movies, television shows and even sporting events preach the Liberal/Progressive Agenda. Can my Liberal friends, at least, admit that our institutions are controlled by Liberals? That doesn’t prove they represent the majority of the people, just that they control the information.

But let me ask my Liberal friends if they have done the kind of research into opposing sides I have. Not only can’t I avoid the opposing side (CNN on television screens in airports, in banks, even in my nail salon), I seek to understand it. I’ve gone to nearly every Townhall given by Karen Bass, Maxine Waters, Brad Sherman, etc. I went to dozens of Townhalls given by Democrat representatives to sell us Obamacare. I actually read all 2500 pages of Obamacare. I doubt any of those giving the Townhalls did. I’ve gone to meetings where we were told how we were going to love Common Core, how great Smart Meters are, how we’re all going to love living in “walkable communities”. I’ve gone to School Board meetings, SKAG meetings, City Council meetings. I seek to get first hand information from people actually involved in the science, or the research, or the implementing of a program. I’ve met with Congressmen, Senators, Heads of State, scientists, city planners, Sheriffs, and many other experts. I’ve gone to hear Michael Mann speak on Climate Change. I went to a three day Climate Change Conference at UCSB where they opened the conference by saying how happy they were to be in a room full of Marxists. Recently, I flew to Malaysia for a UN’s World Urban Forum. I couldn’t have been more steeped in the opposing side.

I’m sure many of you are against censorship, but you are voting for people who will certainly censor the Right. We are being censored right now. Do you agree Facebook, Twitter, Google, YouTube, etc. are owned and staffed by Liberals? Why do you think they censor Conservatives but not Hamas, Farrakhan, ANTIFA? Does that bother you? The Left used to be passionately against censorship. Are you? If someone is speaking truth, does censoring them make them less truthful?

Liberals tell me I’m just afraid of change and I need to get with the times. Well, certainly America is not the country I grew up in, but is that good? Is all change good? Is overwhelming homelessness good? Is socialism really better than Capitalism and liberty?

When I was growing up, we kids ran around the neighborhood with other kids and dogs. We rode bikes and skated. We climbed trees and built forts. Recently, a family got a visit from both the police and CPS for allowing their 8 year old to walk their dog around the block. Is that better? Is it better to confuse kids by telling them gender is fluid and there are 100+ genders? Is it better to give pre-pubescent kids hormones that sterilize them before they understand what that means? It it better that schools and government are taking more and more parental rights? Is it better Government is taking more and more property rights? Is a one party system better?

When I was growing up, government protected us and provided us with the resources we needed. We all believed in individual freedom, in personal responsibility, in self determination. We all spoke the same language and shared traditions. How is it better having government now telling us how to live, where we can live, what we are allowed to own? How is it better having people who don’t speak our language, have nothing in common with us, and in many cases don’t like us, living with us. Tell me where multiculturalism has worked. If you can, I’d be willing to consider it.

When I was growing up we all believed Communism was evil. Now we have a Communist Mayor in New York and a Communist running for President. Our Universities teaching Socialism is good and Capitalism evil. Is that better?

I know Liberals who are against censorship, who believe in due process, Capitalism and private property, who believe in God, who are against global governance, who love this country, but what they need to understand is that voting for ANY Democrat Is voting for global governance. They are voting against everything that made America the most successful country in the world. They are voting against everything they love. Because every Democrat is In lockstep with the Democrat agenda or they will be destroyed……as we are witnessing.

BROWN’S GLOBAL ACTION SUMMIT 2018

</a

Climate Alarmists have done such a good job of scaring people that most of the protestors at the opening of Governor Brown’s Global Climate Action Summit were protesting that government wasn’t doing enough, fast enough.

CFACT gathered an enthusiastic group together for a little street theater Thursday in front of the Summit hall. Dressed as Al Gore, Craig Rucker lead a mindless group of Zombies chanting, “Save the world. Stop global warming”. At times passerby’s joined in. We even had our own heckler who followed us down the street on a bike with a sign saying, “Time to Panic”. One group, wearing yellow T-Shirts, were lined up along a bike lane in front of the Summit. Their shirts said, “Save the bike paths”. I wasn’t aware they were in danger. There are bikes to borrow lined up halfway down the blocks all around San Francisco.

There are dozens of Climate Change Conferences, Summits, Townhalls, meetings, etc. around the world each year. It appears scores of Government officials, Climate activists, and Environmentalists are making a career of flying around the world, many in private planes (I don’t blame them, I’d fly private, if I could, too), to discuss Climate Change. They take SUV’s, Vans and limo’s from the airports, stay in luxury hotels, wine and dine lavishly while planning policies that will prevent the rest of us from doing the same.

Friday, Craig, Debbie Bachigulpi and I attended an event called CARBON ZERO CITIES. It was organized by Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg and Australian Minister for Climate Change and Sustainability, Shane Rattenbury. There were only about 20 people in attendance that included representatives from Copenhagen and Mexico. Not exactly an overwhelming representation of world leaders.

We were first told the meeting was closed to the public. They wanted to know who we were and why we were there. We told them we were concerned about Climate Change and wanted to know what other cities and countries were doing that we could recommend to our cities. They then invited us to have a seat at the table.

Mayor Steinberg opened the meeting telling us Sacramento had very aggressive goals. He bragged that he co-authored SB375 as a State Senator. He planned to have 75,000 zero emission cars you can rent by the hour on Sacramento streets by 2045. Whatever emissions they can’t reduce will be “offset”. Craig asked him what he’d do if people didn’t want electric cars. Steinberg said they would offer “incentives”. Yes, first “nudge”, then “shove”.

The representative from Copenhagen explained they were a biking city and their goal was to make it safer for bikes. He mentioned that windmills worked well when there was wind, but they needed to develop batteries to store energy when there was no wind. I wondered what effect the manufacturing and disposal of such batteries would do to the environment.

As the discussion went around the table it became clear to me the goals were for more “compact housing”, reducing the number of people driving, and rationing resources.. They spoke about it being necessary for local goals to be set by the states. Why would we need local governments if the state is going to decide local goals.

What couldn’t be ignored was just how filthy San Francisco has become. There was trash, lots of it, all along the freeways and city. Weeds as high as an elephant’s eye grew along the freeways & streets. Areas that once were covered in grass, now brown and weedy. A few months ago when I was in San Francisco for a friend’s play, the first thing I encountered upon exiting my Uber on Market Street was a group of pigeons pecking at fresh vomit. This time I found lots of trash on the ground (even with trash cans near but) and urine. Lovely. But rather than spend money cleaning up what once was one of the most beautiful cities in the country or providing us with enough water, Governor Brown said he was going to put up his own satellite to monitor CO2.

COMMUNIST GOAL #22

Communist goal #22 said, “Discredit American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. Eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms”.

I’ve been fascinated by how successful they have been. I keep wondering who approves these pieces of “art”. Does anyone look at any of these “sculptures” and feel uplifted? Do you stop in your tracks in awe of their beauty? I’m reminded of traveling in Italy and around every corner there were incredibly beautiful statues and fountains. I wish there were even a few here. The pictures below are from parks and buildings around Beverly Hills where one would expect to see beauty. When the peach colored twisted metal thing in front of the Bank of America on Wilshire Boulevard was installed I was dumbstruck that anyone approved such a laughably ugly thing. I challenge anyone to point out a statue or piece of art displayed in parks or buildings around Los Angeles that makes you weep at it’s beauty.

MY FRIEND FRANK

Almost from the beginning of my blog I’ve had a follower named Frank. Of course, I don’t really know if Frank is who he says he is, but I assume he is until I learn differently. Frank is a Liberal millenial, Oxford scholar and disagrees with nearly everything I say. I’ve become very fond of Frank because I appreciate that he has never sunk to calling me names. And I enjoy our discussions even though Frank seldom sticks to the subject of the blog he comments on. I thought my readers might enjoy one of our discussions. My replies are in bold.

Michael,

Have you actually seriously studied what it means to be a “Conservative” (AKA…Republican?) GEE, NO, I’ve only been one all my life. If the USA adopted “conservative” policies, we’d still be driving Model T Fords, Michael. LOL! What nonsense! They want the world to never change and want things the way they “used to be.” (Thank God progress was made since 1900)

I always love when Liberals tell Conservatives who they are…..as if they know! I know, I know, Conservatives, are old White, racist, homophobes, bigots, nationalists, islamophobes, etc., etc.

As Reagan said, “It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.”

Republican governance at the Presidential or Congressional level has preceded more severe economic downturns (i.e. Depressions), notably the 1929 Depression which followed over a decade of Republican dominance in both branches. Look it up, Michael! Hoover was the POTUS and he was a “conservative” (aka Republican)

Actually, although I know you Lefties like to blame Republicans, the causes of recessions and depressions take more than a few years to reach the breaking point. Major European banks went bankrupt which was the start of the depression. The causes of the Great Depression didn’t start under Hoover and Roosevelt extended the depression many years longer than necessary with his policies.

And then came Bush 2 who tanked the economy and caused the Great Recession…but I am quite certain you already knew that. Hoover=Bush2…agree?

NO, Again, the crash happened during Bush but wasn’t caused by him. It was caused by Jimmy Carter’s “Neighborhood Reinvestment Act”. It was put on steroids by Bill Clinton. If banks wanted Fanny and Freddie to insure their mortgages a certain percentage of them had to be sub-prime. These were mortgages to low income people who wouldn’t qualify for them. This created many more home buyers (with no increase in the number of homes) which increased the price of homes and caused a housing bubble. Sub-prime buyers paid interest only with a balloon payment in 5 years on homes selling for more than they were worth. Buyers were told home prices were increasing and when their balloon payment came due they could refinance. At the same time, the banks, to protect themselves from these bad loans, bundled them with good loans and sold them. The SEC rated these bundles AAA (they shouldn’t have). When the housing bubble burst, people couldn’t refinance their homes and the bundles banks were selling were nearly worthless. None of that was Bush’s fault…..but nice try.

We are currently in a state of party governance very similar to the 1929 Depression, with Republican control over both the Presidency and Congress over much of the past two years. (with a president who is orange and has yellow hair!!!)

When will you Lefties GET that we don’t care about Trump’s hair, fake tan, tweeting, sex life ten years ago, etc. We CARE that he is securing the border, improving the economy, lowering unemployment, making us energy independent, getting hostages released, denuclearizing N. Korea, renegotiating trade deals that screwed America (EU & USA zero tariffs), bringing companies back to America and keeping companies here, getting NATO countries to pony up more money, ending business crushing regulations, cutting taxes, etc. The GDP today was 4.3. The average during Obama was 1.8. AND just yesterday Turkey released an American hostage. Obama never even tried. The world knows Trump’s American is not going to apologize for being successful and, unlike previous Presidents since Bush Sr. signed Agenda 21, Trump’s America will take a back seat to no one. YAY!!

CONSERVATIVE PRINCIPLES
1. An aversion to rapid change; a belief that tradition and prevailing social norms often contain within them handed down wisdom; and mistrust of attempts to remake society so that it conforms to an abstract account of what would be just or efficient.

I’m sure there are Conservative AND Liberals who don’t like change. I’m not one of them, nor do I know anyone who is (and I know a LOT of Conservatives). I travel a lot, usually by myself. I don’t like public speaking but I do a lot of it. I spend a great deal of my time out of my comfort zone.

But change for the sake of change is no virtue. And all change is not good. Changing from Capitalism to Socialism/Communism, would NOT be good and, YES, Conservatives would and should resist such a change.

Traditions, yes, they are very important. They are what bonds people together. When I was your age, Frank, I didn’t think they were very important either but as you grow older you realize just how important they are to people’s wellbeing.

And yes, wisdom comes from past mistakes. As they say, if you don’t know history, you are bound to repeat it. Socialism has been tried a million times and has never worked. That is wisdom that NEEDS to be passed down to millennials.

There is no way to make things “fair or just” for all people. Life is not fair. But everyone has a talent or something they love and/or are good at. People shouldn’t be protected from failure. Failure is a learning experience. What Lefties don’t understand is that they DON’T know what is best for others and the idea that they do, is arrogant, demeaning, sexist, and racist.

2. A desire to preserve the political philosophy and rules of government articulated in the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.

Guilty as charged and proud of it! Our Constitution is the oldest in the world for a reason. It WORKS! What exactly is outdated about “all men are created equal”? Or three EQUAL branches of government? Or that we have unalienable rights to INDIVIDUAL Liberty? Or that government was instituted to protect our INDIVIDUAL Liberty?

YES, we love the Constitution because our Founders knew there would be people (Liberals) who would work to infringe on our rights. Why are my rights not as important to you as the rights you imagine illegal aliens have?

Our Founders knew people were capable of determining their own fate given the freedom to do so. They didn’t presume to know better. Yes, I will fight to preserve our Constitution until I draw my last breath.

BTW, If you think our Constitution is imperfect, our wise Founders gave us the way to change it. It’s called the Amendment. It was intended to be a long difficult process to avoid generational whims. It was not called judicial activism.

3. A belief that it is imperative to preserve traditional morality, as it is articulated in the Bible, through cultural norms.

Many cultural “norms” have been overturned. Some good, some not. You assume all change is good. It isn’t. And, as our Founders noted, our form of government needs a religious morality to maintain it. The “tradition” of valuing life is a good one. Normalizing killing a baby minutes before birth places no value on life.

Teaching our children there are a hundred genders (anti-science) or how to perform safe anal sex is not change for the better. Nor is normalizing deviant behavior. There IS good and bad change. There IS good and evil.

4. A belief that it is imperative to preserve traditional morality, as it is articulated in the Bible, using cultural norms and the power of the state.

This is the same as #3 except for adding “and the power of the state”. Funny you don’t equate using the power of the state to protect life with using the power of the state to force people to go against their religious beliefs. Sorry, but it’s the Left that LOVES using courts to overturn the will of the people. It’s the Left that uses the power of the state to force people to violate their beliefs. Or to take their plastic bags, straws, cars, private property, etc. But, it’s interesting that while the Left uses the power of the state to force Christians to violate their beliefs, they use the same power of the state to protect Muslims from violating THEIR religious beliefs. Consistency from the Left would be nice.

5. An embrace of free-market capitalism, and a belief in the legitimacy of market outcomes.

Again, guilty as charged and proud of it! Capitalism has raised more people out of poverty than any other system. It is the ONLY system that a person can be born into poverty and become a millionaire. Please tell me what other system makes that possible. It’s a no brainer!!

As far as faith in the legitimacy of market outcomes is concerned, we have faith in the outcome without government interference. Whatever outcomes you think are unfair, have been created by government (generally Democrats, but admittedly also Republicans) giving subsidies, tax breaks, or other benefits to one company that gives it an advantage over others. We need to condemn and try to change government interference NOT Capitalism.

6. A belief that America is an exceptional nation, a shining city on a hill, whose rightful role is the leader of the free world.

We ARE exceptional. Who invented, the plane, the car, the cell phone, and just about everything else that makes life worth living? Who has the highest standard of living in the world? Who, against ALL odds, won a war against the greatest military in the world? Our founding was a miracle.

7. A belief that America should export its brand of democracy through force of arms.

Wrong. Other than show by example, we’re the people who believe others are responsible for their own fate.

I know the Bushes gave lip service to spreading democracy but since they are globalists I don’t think they were very serious.

What Conservatives DO believe is that there is peace through strength. We agree with Churchill that you carry a big stick. We have the finest military on the planet and it should be well funded, up to date and filled with lean, mean fighting machines ready if needed. What we don’t believe the military should be is a social justice experiment.

The Left loves to say we’re imperialists or colonists but after we bombed Japan we could have turned to the rest of the world and said, “We’re the boss now”……..we could have, we didn’t. When we won the war with Mexico, we could have said Mexico belonged to us. ALL OF IT! We didn’t. We signed a treaty, paid millions for the land in dispute, and gave them the rest.

Bush 2 and Herbert Hoover were the Republican presidents during the Great Recession and the Great Depression. (Of course, you probably already knew that) Of course I didn’t, because it isn’t true.

Let’s get with the times Michael and vote for and support more progress in our country. Deal?

NEVER! I’ve fought socialism/communism my whole life, I’m not about to embrace it now. And WHY would I? It’s NEVER worked and always ends in screaming and dying.

I doubt anyone who knows me would say I’m not “with the times”.

BTW, I did watch the Oscars when Jamie Foxx won as best actor and he did mention Kim. Proud mom you must be! Very! I’m very proud of both my girls.
Best,
Frank

COMMUNIST AMERICA

Many years ago when I read the Communist Goals that were read into the Congressional Record in 1963 I thought, good luck, that’s never going to happen. But over the years I became more and more alarmed at how many of those goals were being achieved. Many institutions that were generally respected by both parties are now despised by one, like Christianity, Capitalism, Electoral College, free speech, the Constitution, the Rule of Law, national sovereignty, etc. The Right still believes in those things, but the Left no longer does.

The last few months American loving citizens have been attending City Council meetings across California asking them to join the amicus brief in support of the Federal law suit against California’s Sanctuary State. They drive to these meetings in their own cars, they make their own signs and they speak about the Rule of Law. They don’t get paid for doing this. They spend mind numbing hours just to speak for our national sovereignty.

If you look at Craig’s list you will find ads for paid activists to protest in favor of illegal immigration. We have seen them show up at these City Council meetings with mass printed T-shirts, signs, sandwiches, water, soft drinks, etc. There are organizers leading them in chants and slogans. They don’t care about the Rule of Law. They speak about America being a nation of immigrants without recognizing the difference between legal and illegal. They neglect to recognize that immigrants before the 1960’s came through Ellis Island. They weren’t allowed in if they were sick or had a criminal record. They weren’t granted citizenship until they could speak English, learned the value of our form of government, and had a sponsor. There was no welfare, section 8 housing, food stamps, Medicaid, WICK, school breakfasts & lunches, etc.
They had to find a job and support themselves. It isn’t economically feasible to provide all those benefits with open borders and the Democrats know that. They also know poor people dependent on government support will vote for them. Democrats want to import enough poor people that the entire country will be turned Blue.

So, let’s look at what the Communists have achieved since 1963 and who supports their goals. Goal #15, “Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States”. DONE! What party do you suppose they “captured”? The Democrats have thrown Blacks and White working class Americans (except for White celebrities and other rich donors) under the bus. Democrats were the party of the working man but no longer. Can you name an issue that the Left has fought harder for than illegal aliens and open borders? Democrats tell us “immigrants” make America better but if that were the case, why wouldn’t they make their own countries better? Today America has a homeless problem never seen in this country before. We have Veterans and families living in tent cities. We are rationing water and utilities. States and cities are bankrupt. When we can’t take care of our own, it is immoral to continue the never ending flow of more illegal aliens. We would all agree you can’t keep pulling people into a full life boat or it will sink and all will drown. Democrats want to keep pulling people in.

I never believed the rank and file Democrat voter was in support of these things but they are starting to wake up to the fact their leadership and representatives are. The #WalkAway movement is an indication that more and more lifelong Democrats are “woke”.

What else have the Communists achieved? Goal #16, “Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American Institutions by claiming their activities violate civil Rights”. DONE! The Democrats have been using courts to overturn the Will of the People for decades. That’s why they are throwing a tantrum over Justice Kennedy retiring. They know a more Conservative Supreme Court would uphold the Constitution and apply laws equally to all, not carved out protected classes.

Goal #17, “Get control of schools. Use them as transmission belts for Socialism and current Communist Propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of the teacher’s associations. Put the party line in textbooks”. DONE! Does anyone disagree this has happened? How many Conservatives Professors are in our universities? Liberal run Teachers Unions have control of
our failing schools and resist any effort at school choice. Goal #19, “Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack”. DONE! There are student protests over DACA. David Hogg and his minions staging student walkouts and die-ins over gun control. And July 21st there is a Nation wide student protest planned against Climate Change.

Goal #20, “Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-reviews, editorial writing, policy making positions”. DONE! Does anyone disagree the media supports all the Democrat positions? Open borders, no voter ID, institutional racism, no gender identity, Trump derangement syndrome, etc.? Goal #21, “Gain control of key positions in radio, television and movies”. DONE!

This one is a fascination of mine. Goal #22, “Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. Eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms”. DONE! I have a hobby of taking pictures of the “art” displayed in our parks and buildings. I have a hard time finding
anything that would make me stop and admire it’s beauty. Certainly nothing inspirational like the Pieta or statue of David.

Goal #25, “Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and television”. DONE! Our kids are learning about anal sex in school. They are being taught gender is fluid. Recently, parents in Thousand Oaks protested pornographic books being put on school reading lists.

Goal #27, “Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with social justice doctrine. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a religious crutch”. DONE! I attended the Pope’s encyclical on Climate Change. The first slide in the presentation said, “Man can no longer have dominion over earth”. So, apparently, the Pope thinks the all knowing Lord made a supreme mistake in not knowing the air man exhales could destroy the earth he made FOR man. Churches seem to support illegal immigration as well. They also didn’t stand for traditional marriage. Nor do they appear concerned about no restrictions on abortion. When I was growing up being a practicing Christian was a resume enhancement. Today being a Christian is considered a negative by the Left. Recently, Democrat Senator Feinstein expressed great concern over Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Catholic faith influencing her decisions. Goal #28, “Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in schools on the grounds of separation of church and state”. DONE!

Goal #29, “Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old fashioned, out of step with modern needs”. DONE! This is expressed everyday by Democrats. Goal #30, “Discredit the founding fathers”. DONE! Our schools are teaching our founders were old, White slave owners. They leave out that the founders with slaves inherited them and it was illegal for them to free their slaves. Our kids aren’t taught the Southern states wouldn’t have signed the Constitution if it had outlawed slavery. There would have been no way to end slavery unless the Southern states joined the United States. Apparently our schools don’t want to confuse our kids with facts.

Goal #31, “Belittle American culture and discourage the teaching of American history”. DONE! Obama actually said he didn’t think schools needed to teach history because it didn’t help people get jobs. Many Universities no longer offer American History or require it for a degree in History. American History, if it is offered, emphasizes the negative history, like slavery, KKK, segregation, internment camps, etc. (interestingly all Democrat policies) and minimize the good that has come from America which far outweighs the negative.

I have only touched on some of the most obvious of the Communist Goals. There are others they have been just as successful at accomplishing. Number 35 is currently in play. It simply says, “Discredit and eventually eliminate the FBI”.

My Democrat friends need to look at what their party stands for today. They need to read the Communist goals and compare them to the Democrat leadership’s policies. This isn’t their parents Democrat party anymore. It has embraced Socialism/Communism and abandoned American born citizens in favor of illegal aliens. Is this what you stand for?
