Killing the Truth in Academia

General Robert E Lee
rlee@suthenboy.com
 
Preamble: The purpose of this blog is to discuss the principal curricula being taught in academia today as well as its impact on students and consequences to America. 
I was appalled by the disgusting reaction to Trump’s victory throughout academia, particularly by college students and instructors. Their behavior was reprehensible, embarrassing to America, and sadly, expected in today’s once hallowed bastions of higher learning. Something is drastically wrong in academia when instructors and students require coloring books, animals to hug, safe spaces to mourn, crying rooms, psychological help, relief from exams, and time off to assuage their despair, despondency, and anger. Far worse however, is their blatant rejection and defiance of America’s traditional election process because it did not provide the result they sought.
 
In my opinion the root cause of this abhorrent behavior is the culture of academia into which students are being indoctrinated by far left wing instructors propagating Marxism subtly disguised as progressivism. Sound ridiculous, please read on before commenting on my sanity. I also encourage you to read my 8/26/15 blog ‘Academic Shock’ to more fully appreciate the breadth and dangers of what is being instilled in students throughout academia today.
The following statements exemplify modern day fundamental building blocks of education: 
  • There are no facts, only interpretations – Friedrich Nietzsche
  • Morals, values, truths, standards, and human nature itself are products of different historical epochs and socially constructed – Marxism’s Worldview
Academia’s Standard Curricula: The curricula throughout politically correct academia today includes radical left wing self-proclaimed elite professors/instructors teaching students to reject objective truths and replace them with relative truths: i.e., perspectives or points of view to which each person is entitled regardless of how inconsistent with the truth they are. Notwithstanding how outrageous a relative truth may be, e.g., the Holocaust is a myth, at best it is taught to be a more unfortunate perspective on the matter instead of being repudiated as a lie. This self-serving cavalier attitude within the arrogant professorial domain adversely affects students in ways that include the following:
  • Disregards and renders truth meaningless
  • Erodes the legitimacy of serious opinion
  • Deprives students of a much needed solid education founded on traditionally accepted disciplines of study  
Another result of rejecting objective truths is that facts are considered as matters of opinion relative to and dependent upon the interests, prejudices, sexual orientation, or ethnic origin of the speaker rather than the truth or falsity of what the speaker says. The premise being that truth is somehow invented rather than discovered, and ergo, relative to the speaker.
 
Harvard historian Simon Schama perfectly exemplifies this arrogant attitude toward truth in the prologue to his fatuous book “Dead Certainties” (1991). Schama assures his readers “the claims for historical knowledge must always be fatally circumscribed by the character and prejudices of its narrator.” In other words, the historian’s supposed limitations make stating historical truth impossible, which is utter nonsense.
 
The Genesis of Relative Truths: This repugnant affront to traditional education, its truths and inherent values, is rooted in Cultural Marxism. This ideology was conceived, circa 1921, at the Frankfurt School in Frankfurt Germany by a group of radical Marxist intellectuals who rejected traditional Economic Marxism because they realized it was incapable of destroying and dominating the West. Cultural Marxism was based on behavioral psychology to achieve mass compliance with a desired goal(s), and ultimately replaced Economic Marxism. It is modern day Marxism euphemistically referred to as progressivism to hide the true ideology but Marxism nonetheless. The great majority of progressives are ignorant of the ideology they are propagating and just happy following the heard of sheep.
 
Unlike Karl Marx, the founding Cultural Marxists envisioned catalyzing the complete destruction of Western traditions, values, and culture by a lengthy, indefensible, peaceful cultural revolution wherein traditional morals and authority would be rejected. Once achieved Western culture would be supplanted by Cultural Marxist ideology.
 
In 1933 as National Socialism was gaining momentum in Germany the founders fled to America and set up shop at Columbia University in NYC. They began sowing the seeds of their cultural revolution by diffusing Cultural Marxist ideology through key spheres of influence, initially focusing on academia, politics, the MSM and film industry. The founders knew that progress would be slow but remained patient and steadfast while assiduously propagating their ideology.
 
The ’60s Boomer Rebellion: The founders’ fortunes dramatically changed for the better in the middle 1960s with the student “Boomer” rebellion wherein morality and authority were rejected and individual freedom to do as one pleased was exalted. The father and ultimate leader of this rebellion throughout academia was Herbert Marcuse, a founding member of the Frankfurt School and elite, well-respected university professor. Marcuse coined the chant, “make love not war” that became poplar throughout academia.
 
Deconstructing Truth: Marcuse’s methodology for rebellion included deconstructing the language, e.g., he coined the infamous “what does ‘is’ mean?” which fostered the destruction of American culture. Deconstruction destabilizes and reconstructs clear definitions, the content and text of language, traditions, being, institutions, objective knowledge, reason, truth, legitimate hierarchies, authority, nature, and all that is considered universal. 
 
Marcuse was esteemed by the masses rebelling against the establishment. He catalyzed the confusion and obliteration of traditionally accepted culture through deconstruction which was primarily responsible for a major breakdown in the nation’s social conformity, particularly among impressionable young people.
 
The Intent of Deconstruction: Deconstruction is used by Cultural Marxists as the method of analysis that will show the correctness of their ideology in every situation and provide the answers they seek. This is done by taking any text, removing all meaning from it and re-inserting the meaning sought. For instance, Cultural Marxists uniquely use deconstruction to prove that any text illustrates the oppression of minorities, e.g., blacks, women, homosexuals, etc., by reading that meaning into the text’s words regardless of its actual meaning. The overused ‘race card’ routine should come to mind.
Outrageous examples include Shakespeare writing about suppressing women, and the Bible being about race and gender. Furthermore, morals, values, truths, standards, and human nature itself are considered products of different historical epochs and socially constructed. Ergo, the truth is relative, dynamic, and meaningless in the hands of a deconstructionist academician poisoning young minds to suit her or his agenda.
 
The Impact on Academia: The consequences of intentionally obfuscating and skewing the truth to fit a desired end have been particularly devastating in academia. Dissident ‘Boomers’ of the ’60s and their acolytes have dominated academia’s professorial domain for years. They were spoon fed and indoctrinated into Cultural Marxism as students, and as instructors are likewise actively propagating and spoon feeding that same ideology to their students. Among other things, they have intentionally undermined the integrity and very ideas of many academic disciplines in fields of study with generally agreed upon subject matters.
 
Study Groups: Instead of academic emphasis being placed on traditional disciplines, e.g., history, math, science, and literature, it is placed on race, ethnicity, and gender taught through study groups. There is an endless proliferation of such groups throughout academia which are typically comprised of the so-called “historically disadvantaged” minorities considered as ‘sacred cows’ by today’s politically correct progressives. This situation clearly evinces a breakdown of long accepted academic disciplines and is strongly encouraged by the respective educational administrations, also highly concentrated with progressives. 
 
Superficially the common mantra and favorite code words of study groups are inclusion, tolerance, diversity, sensitivity, social justice, sex education, and other such terminology connoting kindness. Notwithstanding the seemingly innocuous terms however, they are critical components of Cultural Marxism being cleverly disguised as progressivism as mentioned aforesaid. Ironically, to force compliance with their position on a matter, these inclusive, tolerant groups spew vile hatred towards and demonize everyone in disagreement with them, particularly straight White males.
 
Radical Left Wing Professors: Ultra-radical radical left wing instructors with personal anti-American agendas teach the pseudo study groups that include the following: women’s studies; gay studies; transgender studies; Asian studies; Afro-American studies; African studies; Indian studies; and the list goes on ad nauseam. While these groups are hyped as being cross- disciplinary they are anti-disciplinary because their sole purpose is to diffuse Cultural Marxist ideology in lieu of America’s culture, values and traditions. Among other Marxist concepts instructors use relative truth and deconstruction to achieve their desired anti-American goals. Carefully note, there are no male, White, or Western European studies. The only reference to Whites in any of these study groups is in demonizing and blaming them for the perceived ‘ills’ of the world’s ‘historically disadvantaged minorities’.
 
Cultural Studies: Cultural studies is the group most repugnant to traditional education because content is entirely discretionary with the instructor and accordingly, characterized by attitudes and agendas instead of empirical facts. There are two mandatory requisites for cultural studies: (1) political animus: (2) hostility to factual truth. Generally, students are strongly encouraged and often mandated to take this ridiculous course that is underpinned by ‘White Guilt’. 
Below are examples of relative truths students are taught by politically correct radical left wing Marxist ideologues with an aversion to empirical evidence and everything American.  
  • Columbus was an evil, bloodthirsty marauder who committed the American Holocaust, while the Indians were peaceful, environmentally sensitive creatures who lived in blissful harmony with each other and the earth. 
  • Cortez, who conquered Mexico on behalf of Spain, was a mass murderer and the Aztec conquest evinced European Imperialism perpetrating the greatest genocide in all human history.
  • Early pilgrims slaughtered their Indian guests at a Thanksgiving feast
It should be abundantly clear that present day curricula taught by Marxist instructors precipitated the behavior of academia that resulted from Trump’s win. More ominous, however, is the poisonous Marxist ideology into which students are being indoctrinated by instructors that loathe and want to destroy traditional American culture and values.

If a civil war is brewing in America it’s because it is being bought and paid for by billionaire George Soros. Who should have his citizenship revoked, be exiled, and forbidden to engage in any business, organization, or charitable, non-profit organization. Plus his assets should frozen to fulfill a restitution that repays communities for the destruction his paid lemmings committed. George Soros needs to be kicked out of our country.

Corruption at America’s Highest Levels of Government

Corruption at America’s Highest Levels of Government
 
Hillary-What-Difference-copyThe purpose of this blog is twofold: 1. Point out Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s complicity and willful, subjective involvement in a corrupt effort to ensure Hillary Clinton is elected president; 2. For you to carefully consider whether her character represents the ethical and moral standards reasonably expected of the U.S. Attorney General or any person serving at the highest level of our government.
 
Never in America’s history has the depth of blatant unbridled corruption in the presidency and judicial system been more clearly exemplified than on July 5, 2016, when FBI Director James Comey announced that he would not bring criminal charges against Hillary Clinton and the matter was closed. There is not a doubt in my mind that this fraud perpetrated on America’s rule of law, judicial system and her citizenry was architected well in advance by corrupt amoral liars Obama, Lynch, Clintons’ long time hack Comey, and the Clintons. For details see my 9/8/16 blog The Clinton – Comey Nexus.
 
Miscarriage of Justice at the Highest Levels of Government: The reason for such a disgraceful miscarriage of justice should be abundantly clear by now: Obama, Lynch and Comey want the candidate whose character is as corrupt, dark and evil as theirs to be president. That stellar individual is Hillary Clinton, a proven evil, amoral pathological liar and rapacious, ruthless career criminal.
 
It is a dark, unprecedented time in America when the President, Attorney General, and FBI Director use the power of their respective offices acting under color of title to illegally facilitate their goal. Equally appalling is America’s President aggressively supporting vile Clinton, who should be under indictment, while she is the target of multiple legitimate, long overdue criminal investigations all involving felonies. However, in addition to other character traits, Obama is a crude, classless boor and such comportment is expected.
 
U. S. Attorney Lynch: Pursuant to President Bill Clinton’s nomination in 1999, Lynch served as U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York in Brooklyn until joining the law firm of Hogan & Hartson in March 2002. She remained there through April, 2010 then returned to her old position as U.S. Attorney in Brooklyn when Obama appointed her.
 
Hogan & Hartson began preparing and filing the Clintons’ tax returns in 2004, and were among Hillary’s largest financial supporters in the legal industry during her first presidential campaign. I cannot speak to a relationship between the Clintons and Lynch during her stint at the law firm. However, knowing the depth of the vile Clintons’ corruption and use of key people it is not a stretch to assume that developing a solid relationship with ex U.S. Attorney Lynch was in their cross hairs. Soon thereafter it was accomplished.
 
HSBC Money Laundering Case: HSBC was implicated in the largest international money laundering case in U.S. history. Its executives admitted to laundering billions of dollars from arms dealers, drug traffickers, and power players from around the world from 2006 through 2010. As much as $881M laundered through the bank’s U.S. arms was from Mexican drug cartels and their various middle east terrorist allies in violation of multiple banking laws.
 
For the sake of brevity, criminal charges were never filed against the bank or any of its executives. Instead, in December, 2012, Lynch, acting in her capacity as U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York and with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s acquiescence, brokered a ‘Deferred Prosecution Agreement’ wherein HSBC Bank USA agreed to pay a $1.9 billion fine and admitted to the following felonies: 
  • Willful criminal conduct
  • Gross violations of the Bank Secrecy Act, including failure to establish and maintain an effective anti-money laundering program,
  • Failure to establish due diligence in laundering of over $881 million
The U.S. in turn agreed to drop its criminal investigations and prosecutions of HSBC directors and employees. In other words, HSBC committed multiple serious felonies and walked without incurring any criminal consequences, gratis Obama, Holder and Lynch.
 
At a bare minimum this sweetheart deal did not even rise to the dignity of a slap on the wrist because the fine was less than chump change to HSBC. It still reeks from the rancid stanch of corruption emanating from a quid pro quo wherein Obama, Holder, and Lynch were the other beneficiaries. Congress went through the usual feigning of outrage, held meaningless hearings, etc., then swept the farcical performance off to ‘la-la land’ to join its other charades.
 
Coincidence or Quid Pro Quo: I have never believed in coincidences but rather have always felt that things happen for a reason. For instance, consider the following events:
  • Comey was an executive in senior level management and a director of HSBC during the time it was laundering the aforesaid $881M
  • Obama named Comey FBI Director in 2012
  • During the same time HSBC was and likely remains tightly connected to the Clinton Foundation that received up to $81M in ‘pay to play donations’ from a few of its clients
  • On November 11, 2014 Obama named Lynch, still serving as U.S. Attorney in Brooklyn, as Attorney General
  • Lynch and Sleazy Willy Clinton got caught meeting secretly for 30 minutes in her plane parked at a remote corner of the Phoenix airport a few days before Comey announced his egregious decision not to charge Clinton. 
No coincidences here but rather each evinces a quid pro quo underpinned by corruption.
 
A Friend at DOJ: The law and ethics notwithstanding, Lynch is determined to do whatever it takes to facilitate a Clinton presidency, and prevent her from facing criminal prosecution. In connection therewith the following is public information, and one can only speculate what Lynch and Obama are doing privately, but be assured it is most likely not legit.
 

1. On October 28 Comey unexpectedly broke protocol and without Lynch’s knowledge announced that he had reopened the previously closed criminal investigation of Clinton’s email scandal. His reasoning was based on the NYPD and some of his agents discovering some 650,000 emails on a laptop shared by Clinton’s chief aide at State, Huma Abedin, and her husband, Anthony Wiener while investigating a sex case involving Wiener. Abedin is a Muslim with strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and many of the emails were from the State Department. Knowing this explosive information would be leaked sooner than later Comey acted on his own to avoid further embarrassment and prevent Lynch, a staunch supporter, defender, and friend of Clinton from thwarting his efforts.

 

2. According to the MSM and insider accounts Lynch was angry and vehemently resisted assisting Comey in the new investigation. However, since Comey had made the announcement and to save face she appointed assistant AG Peter Kadzik to head the criminal investigation of the laptop’s content. Incredibly, Lynch knew Kadzik was best friends with Clinton’s campaign manager, corrupt liar unctuous John Podesta. Wikileaks produced an email from Kadzik’s private gmail account giving Podesta a ‘heads up’ about filings the DOJ would be making in the first Clinton email matter. In effect this was ‘DOJ insider information’ to which Podesta was not entitled. Sending it was against policy and likely illegal, but inconsequential to Lynch since Kadzik’s act was intended to benefit Clinton.

 

3. Lynch ordered FBI agents investigating the organized criminal enterprise known as the Clinton ‘Pay to Play’ Foundation to stand down, notwithstanding an ‘avalanche’ of inculpatory evidence supporting a multitude of felonies.

 
Connect the Dots: The dots between Lynch and the vile career criminal Clintons are present, very telling, and easy to connect: they evince a crystal clear pattern of criminal corruption at the highest levels of our government that is repugnant to all decency. It should be abundantly clear that Lynch is illegally using her position as Attorney General to facilitate a Clinton presidency. She is intentionally thwarting the legal process involved in criminal investigations by overtly and covertly shielding for Clinton and this corrupt liar will never indict her. Needless to say, Lynch and people of her sordid character will occupy every key position in a Clinton administration as they do in Obama’s lawless one and it will be business as usual in the toxic DC pit where lying and corruption rule supreme.
 
America’s Next President: This will likely be the most important election in America’s history because Clinton and Trump want to place our country on diametrically opposed paths for the foreseeable future. Clinton claims America is already great and not in need of change except for open borders to all and increasing the number of Muslim aliens to support by 550%. Trump knows that America is badly broken and can only be made great again by controlling immigration, and eliminating the accepted culture of corruption and lying that permeates the Washington DC swamp.
 
A Clinton Presidency: I am certain that a Clinton presidency will replicate the culture of rampant corruption and amoral pathological lying Obama has instilled in his administration only on steroids. This is the type of culture in which the Clintons are proven experts; they will also wreak havoc on America to complete the destruction of her traditional culture and values commenced by Obama. Remember, Clinton is a hard core Marxist mentored by and an acolyte of anti-US Marxist Saul Alinsky, as is Obama. Alinsky wrote the radical activist’s bible, ‘Rules for Radicals’, wherein he educated his followers on how to cause chaos and systemic disruption to destroy America.
 
A Trump Presidency: If you are sick of corrupt lying career politicians subordinating America’s interests to their personal greed and want a better, safer, more productive America for yourself and your family’s future, vote for Trump. It is time to change the failed, corrupt amorality of DC with a highly successful outsider who sincerely loves and will put the best interests of America first and foremost … Donald Trump.

A Simple Experiment Disproves the Climate Change Alarmists ⋆ The Constitution

By Adrian Vance

Climate Alarmist Dr. Joe Romm claims atmospheric CO2 will rise to 910 parts per million, ppm, by the year 2100 where today it is 390 ppm, a 233% increase in 84 years and turn America into Death Valley.  We simulate this with two 2.5 liter plastic bottles for a shocking outcome costing less than $10, with no million Dollar grant or trips to exotic places to read papers, eat truffles and drink Champagne on your Federal tax Dollars.

In addition to the bottles, we need two lab “stick” thermometers, 650 milliliters of pure water, 1/8th tsp. of baking soda and a few drops of Distilled White Vinegar to simulate the 2100 AD atmosphere of America as predicted by Dr. Romm.  We suggest this be done in every General Science classroom in America.  It is low in cost and highly educational.

The bottles must be clear, not tinted, and “2.5 liters.”  There are other sizes and it is critical.  Lab thermometers are $2.39 each on Ebay.  Baking soda and “White Distilled Vinegar” are common pantry items plus a medicine dropper is common in most homes or $1.00 in a drug store.

 

Thermometer accuracy is easily confirmed by putting them into a tall glass of ice and water, where they should say 0° Celsius. Then, into a pot of boiling water where they should say 100° Celsius if you are at sea level.  If you are above sea level the boiling point will be lower.

In Chicago, at 650 ft,  it is 99.5° C, which is the level for most of the nation east of the Mississippi, but in Denver, at 5280 ft. it is 95° C and the far west is all over the place with Death Valley below sea level where the boiling point is 101°C!  Nonetheless, we are only interested in how thermometers track one another.  They must be consistent.  If one is a degree warmer than the other it must be consistently so through the 20 to 35 degree range.

Put both thermometers in a glass two cup measure with one cup of cold tap water.  Wait a few minutes then read the thermometers. They will say 15 to 20 degrees. Add one cup of hot water from that tap and track the change as it will rise from the temperature of house cold water to the higher temperature of the hot and cold water mix.  And, they should move through the range together or with the same difference consistently.  If not return the unit not showing the correct temperature in ice water.

Plastic bottle caps are drilled by a Phillips screwdriver with a 1/4 inch shaft with the tip held over a candle flame for 30 seconds.  The handle insulates heat so you can hold it. The hot tip goes through plastic like butter leaving a hole just large enough for a thermometer.  Both thermometers are pushed into the caps three inches while the plastic is soft.  On cooling they freeze in place, but can be removed later with careful twisting using your thumb and forefinger near the cap.

The volume of the “2.5 liter” soda bottle is actually 2,725 milliliters. Use bottled water, to avoid municipal water chlorine and fluorine, putting 325 milliliters into each for a net air volume of 2.4 liters over water.  This simulates Earth’s air as 71% is covered by water and the green areas put almost as much water vapor into air as do the seas.

2.4 liters is 1/10th “molar volume” of air at 20° Celsius, the normal room temperature in the United States. “Molar” refers to “mole,” a contraction of “molecular” and means the volume of a gas with a mass of one molecular weight in grams.

For experimental work we use molar volumes for accuracy.  The details are cumbersome so we omit them here, but present them completely at:

http://adrianvancearchive.blogspot.com/2016/09/future-atmosphere-notes.html

We set up the two bottles, one with water alone, labeled “2016 AD” air with 390 ppm of CO2 naturally and “2100 AD” with 910 ppm artificially.  This can be done outside, but we favor a window sill as these bottles are easily tipped by a breeze and window glass does not block infrared, IR, energy. When the sun is low little IR comes through all the air. After 10 AM, when the sun angle is above 45 degrees, IR passes through less air and the glass where it cannot when the angle is less than 45 degrees.  Be sure the thermometers are shaded from direct sun with foil “hats,” only reading the temperature of the air in the flasks.

The two temperatures rise as the sun elevates and fall slowly after noon until 3 PM, then fall quickly as solar radiation passes through more atmosphere.

To test the effect of increasing CO2 in our atmosphere from the 390 ppm of today to 910 ppm for the year 2100 AD as claimed by Dr. Joe Romm, we only need to put half a 1/8th teaspoon of baking soda in the “2100 AD” bottle, swirling to dissolve it.  We need 1.25 drops of White Distilled Vinegar and can make a perfect dose by taking two drops of the acid, add six drops of water and then use five drops of that solution in the simulator.

Put the cap with thermometer on and let it sit overnight to react fully to  create the Romm 910 ppm CO2 air of 2100 AD.  Put the two bottles in a window sill and record their temperatures each hour.  What do we see?

According to Dr. Romm the 2100 AD bottle will get hot, going over 40 Celsius degrees, 104 Fahrenheit!  But what happens?  The 2100 AD bottle tracks precisely with the 2016 bottle air with less CO2 in it!  The CO2 was an insignificant component of the atmosphere at 390 PPM and it would be at 910 PPM.  It is just that simple.  As we have seen, “warmists” are prone to overplay everything from polar bear deaths to all the ice melting at the poles when there are more polar bears than ever in history, probably because they are getting fat on the Five Star garbage left by warmist scientists.

For 150 years atmospheric scientists have required a gas must have at least one percent of the atmosphere to be significant.  We can add enough CO2 to make that the case in our simulator.  Our one-tenth molar volume simulator

needs 24 ml of CO2 which we can generate by taking four drops of the acid, adding one drop of water and then using four drops of that in the second bottle for a 20% dilution.

One percent is 10,000 parts per million, ppm, which shows the real effect of CO2 in the atmosphere and by having a “control” bottle tracking ordinary air over water we will see that it is a cooling component.

 

If Dr. Romm were correct the air in the “2100 AD” bottle would heat faster and more than the “2016 AD” flask, perhaps going over 40º C by noon, but it declines!  This dashes all alarmist claims.  Without them they will get no grants, book contracts, TV appearances or tenure.  When realized it will kill the gravy train of academia.  This is an undeniable fact!  Many of academia feel they are entitled to wealth and fame because they are “smart.”

Virtually everything written and published about “global warming” and/or “climate change” has been fraudulent and done by those seeking political power, government grants, high-paying government jobs or academic tenure as the colleges and universities are dependent on Federal money.  It is just another tale of corruption in America and you can prove it with a two soda bottles, a box of baking soda, a bottle of vinegar and one medicine dropper.

The Deaths of the Clinton Family’s Enemies is Reminiscent of Hitler’s Night of the Long Knives ⋆ The Constitution

By Dr. Paul Revere

The Deaths of the Clinton Family’s Enemies is Reminiscent of Hitler’s Night of the Long Knives

“Demoralize the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage, assassination.”  —Adolf Hitler

The Prophet [Muhammad] said, “Who will rid me of Ibn al-Ashraf?”  Muhammad b[in] Maslamah . . . said, “I will rid you of him, O Messenger of God, I will kill him.”  “Do it then,” [the Prophet] said, “if you can.”  . . . “O Messenger of God,” [Muhammad bin Maslamah] said, “we shall have to tell lies.”  “Say what you like,” [the Prophet] replied, “You are absolved in the matter.”  Tabari, The History of al-Tabari, Vol. VII, trans. W. Montgomery Watt (SUNY Press, 1987), p. 95

 

The Night of the Long Knives

The Night of the Long Knives (in German, “die Nacht der langen Messer”), was a period of political revenge that took place in Germany from June 30 to July 2, 1934 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_of_the_Long_Knives).  It was during this time that Hitler sponsored a series of politically-motivated executions to consolidate his hold on power.  Many of those assassinated were leaders in Hitler’s own Nazi Party.  Most of the killings were carried out by the Schutzstaffel (German for “Protection Squadron” and otherwise known as the “SS”) and the Gestapo (short for “Geheime Staatspolizei” or Secret State Police), Hitler’s apparatus for carrying out secret operations and assassinations, much akin to Obama’s Muslim-led CIA (John Brennan, the CIA chief, converted to Islam in Riyadh, while station chief there https://cofda.wordpress.com/2015/08/26/cia-director-john-brennan-is-a-muslim-convert/).  Of course, Hitler, an admirer of Muhammad, cannot help but prove similar in psychological make-up and murderous behavior to the Great Jihadist and King of Assassins himself.

 

Clinton’s Totalitarian Role Models

Clinton’s loss this summer of so many key enemies is reminiscent of Hitler’s similar loss of political opponents during the Night of the Long Knives.  Clinton’s intimate relationship with Muslim-Brotherhood-member Huma Abedin (http://eaglerising.com/8011/hillary-huma-muslim-brotherhood/) can only serve to suggest a level of comfort with the use of assassination as a tool for eliminating enemies.  Historically speaking, assassination was a tool that totalitarians Hitler and Muhammad both utilized (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4AafcDhOvw).  Hitler felt he had much in common with Muhammad (http://eaglerising.com/25130/hitlers-last-laugh-angela-merkels-birthing-of-an-islamo-fascist-fourth-reich/): “The Muhammadan religion . . . would have been much more compatible to us [Germans] than Christianity,” according to Hitler, who also said that “ultimately not Arabs but Islamized Germans could have stood at the head of [the] Mohammedan Empire.”

Whether it be Hitler or Muhammad that Clinton mirrors more closely, what is significant is that so many people on Hillary’s enemies-list have died so mysteriously during the course of the 2016 campaign, leaving little doubt that the Hitleresque long knives and jihadist sympathies of Hillary Clinton are no conspiracy theory but are quite real.

 

The Death of Vincent Fleck

The Sluzhba Vneshney Razvedki (SVR)—the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service for external civilian affairs—reports (http://www.americanpoliticnews.com/uncategorized/uh-oh-look-happened-physician-leaked-hillarys-secret-medical-records/) that Vincent Fleck, the father of the physician treating Hillary for dementia, has suddenly expired.  According to SVR, the prime suspect in the slaying is a Central-Intelligence-Agency “hit team” that “traveled about 70 kilometers [44 miles] from their New York City ‘base/headquarters’ to a small village named Mount Kisco, both being located in New York State.”  The report accuses these CIA assassins of breaking into a computer company, Right Click Solutions, at 322 East Main Street, and fleeing upon being surprised by an employee, managing to take with them a single laptop computer—and probably, as it turns out, the wrong one.

An SVR hacking expedition into the files of Right Click Solutions demonstrated that Vincent Fleck had had a “Snowden-like dead-man’s switch” installed on his personal computer by Right Click.  (A “dead-man’s switch” is software that automatically publishes predesignated information, if the owner of the computer fails to log on at his regularly scheduled time.)  While SVR was still investigating Fleck, he suddenly died in a mysterious swimming accident.  Within 24 hours of Fleck’s death, Clinton’s damning medical information was released via a Twitter account called @HillsMedlRecords; this was hastily shut down, but not before the account leaked the following message: “I hate to do this, but people need to need to know.  Dr. Bardack was not honest about Hillary Clinton’s health and I have proof.”  Damaging medical documents were to follow, the most damaging of which diagnosed Hillary (http://politicianreviews.com/review/hillary-medical-records-revealed-dementia-seizures-black-outs-we-have-the-report/) as having “Complex Partial Seizures” and “Subcortical Vascular Dementia.”

 

It All Started with Shariar Zolfaghari

What would appear to be a Hillary Clinton summer spree of serial assassinations started on June 1, 2016, when Georgia State Prosecutor Camila Wright’s husband was murdered just ahead of Wright’s prosecution of Bill Clinton and his sex-offender friend, Jeffrey Epstein, for child-sex and child-slavery charges.  According to CBS (http://www.cbs46.com/story/32132841/ga-assistant-ag-speaks-publicly-on-death-of-husband), Camila Wright said, “We are broken,” and he SVR reported (http://www.blacklistednews.com/Husband_Of_Prosecutor_Investigating_Bill_Clinton_For_Child_Sex_Charges_Gunned_Down/51713/0/38/38/Y/M.html) that President Obama’s own squad of CIA assassins killed Wright’s husband for the express purpose of breaking her, thereby preventing a timely prosecution of Bill Clinton for having had sex with an underage sex-slave who was kept by Clinton-friend Jeffrey Epstein.  The SVR decided it was Obama’s CIA “hit squad,” because, on May 31, 2016, that squad was dispatched to the Atlanta, Georgia, area, where they remained until the morning of June 1, 2016.  The SVR reports that “shortly after [the ‘hit squad’] departure from the Atlanta region, local police officers were called and discovered the body of Shahriar Zolfaghari who was the husband of Georgia’s statewide prosecutor for human trafficking Camila Wright—and whom Atlanta Police Major Adam Lee III reported had been shot twice in the chest at close range and said: ‘It’s a mystery as to why someone would harm him.’”

 

John Ashe

On June 22, 2016, Clinton associate John Ashe, who was preparing testimony against the Clinton Foundation, was killed, his throat crushed by a barbell in a weird weightlifting incident.  Ashe was scheduled to provide courtroom testimony in the days following his death, since prosecutors had linked Ashe to Ng Lap Seng, a bagman for the Clintons who smuggled $4.5 into the country.  Ashe’s death was quite convenient for the Clintons.

Kosar, in World News Daily (http://www.wnd.com/2016/06/death-by-barbell-sparks-questions-about-hillary-silencing-people/) comments: “‘Could this be Hillary Clinton silencing people who “know too much?”  We know there are at least 46 people from Clinton World who have died under mysterious circumstances.  While some are certainly a coincidence, it is very clear that being deeply connected into the Clinton political world can be hazardous to your health.’”

 

Seth Rich

On July 7, Democrat operative Seth Rich, who was about to testify against Clinton and the FBI, was murdered while jogging.  SVR Director Mikhail Fradkov—in an unusual move just prior to the assassination—authorized an emergency contact (http://www.fury.news/2016/08/breaking-new-intel-reveals-hillary-clintons-hit-team-assassinated-dnc-staffer/) with the US State Department, out of fear that the assassination of Seth Rich was imminent.  But when Russian diplomats presented SVR’s analysis to State, on July 7, 2016, they were summarily expelled from the country.  Seventy-two hours later, Seth Rich lay dead of gunshot wounds, at 4:19 AM, on July 10, 2016.  The SVR report suggested that Rich had been lured to his death by a “hit team” acting the parts of FBI agents wanting to interview him.  Also according to the SVR, the assassins were captured on July 12, 2016, after a firefight with US authorities, blocks from the White House.  SVR analysts (http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2016/07/clintons-order-yet-another-asassination-top-dem-party-member-seth-rich-3384642.html) speculate that the assassination of Rich so inflamed FBI Director James Comey that he ordered the assassins be taken into custody.  The same analysts claim that Comey let Hillary Clinton escape indictment, because he is a former director of HSBC bank, which has funneled hundreds of millions of illicit dollars to the Clintons through the Clinton Foundation.

 

Victor Thorn

Victor Thorn, author of four books about the Clintons, died from a gunshot wound to his head on August 1st, his 54th birthday.  Thorn’s latest book about the Clintons was a huge success, so suicide is doubtful.  Also, Russell Scott (http://endingthefed.com/man-who-researched-clinton-found-dead-but-his-last-words-are-the-scary-part-video.html), a talk-show host who had featured Thorn twice on his show, quotes Thorn as having said that “if I’m ever found dead, it was murder.  I would never kill myself.”

 

Shawn Lucas

Thirty-eight-year-old Shawn Lucas was serving the Democrat National Committee with legal notice that they were being sued, at their Washington, DC, headquarters on July 1, 2016; and he was found dead on his bathroom floor, on August 2, 2016 (https://genesiscnc.com/is-the-clintons-hit-squad-at-it-again/).  Lucas has since become famous from a viral Internet video of his serving legal papers on the DNC.  In the video, Lucas revels in his having served the Democrats with the now-famous lawsuit charging fraud in the way the primary system was rigged to ensure a Clinton victory over Sanders.

 

A Long, Dark Night

So, do these killings indicate that an ongoing Night of the Long Knives, Clinton-style, is being carried out?  What do YOU think?

Obama and the U.N. Collude to “Beef Up” and Nationalize America’s Police Departments – Minutemen News

 logo

This won’t come as a surprise.  Obama and the United Nations are on another quest to “beef up” and nationalize America’s police departments.  This is just another of the numerous initiatives by the U.N. to attack our Constitution and our rights as citizens.

The New American reports – After recently demanding everything from “robust gun control” and reparations for slavery to constitutional amendments altering the supreme law of the land, the United Nations has now publicly endorsed the Obama administration’s illegal efforts to federalize America’s local police departments. A UN official also offered to provide “technical assistance” to the U.S. government in implementing its radical demands.   

Specifically, a UN official from Kenya touted one of the many schemes used by the White House to impose unconstitutional federal regulations on local law enforcement. Dubbed “consent decrees,” the plot involves extremist bureaucrats at the Obama Justice Department threatening, bullying, and suing city governments into submission to Obama’s demands. The UN “lawyer” called for the administration’s commandeering of cops to be “beefed up” and “increased” to help nationalize as many of America’s police departments as possible.

Citing “international law,” the UN figure also attacked gun rights and the concealed carry of firearms. The latest UN assault on the God-given rights to keep and bear arms, protected by state and U.S. constitutions, came after a deluge of similar attacks coming from the global body, and its widely ridiculed “Human Rights Council” in particular. While the U.S. government is not currently represented, some of the most ruthless communist and Islamist dictatorships on the planet enjoy seats on the outfit

The UN bureaucrat boasted of the Obama administration’s “cooperation” in the supposed investigation. However, the reaction to the UN’s attacks was swift, with criticism of the UN, often ridiculed by critics as the “dictators club,” making headlines across America after being posted on the Drudge Report, the world’s top news and information site.

March, 2015 (more than a year ago), Rep. Mike Rogers introduced a bill (H.R. 1205: American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2015) The bill had seven co-sponsors and was assigned to the House Foreign Affairs committee (Chariman: Ed Royce). There were no roll call votes, so it basically died in committee.

Here are the names of the original co-sponsors: John “Jimmy” Duncan (R-TN2), Tim Huelskamp (R-KS1), Maggie Thomas (R-KY4), Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA3), Ted Yoho (R-FL3), Jeff Duncan (R-SC3), and Walter Jones (R-NC3)

Start contacting your representatives, and even these who supported the bill, to see if we can get this bill reintroduced, or a similar one pushed through.

We must get out of the U.N.!

Betrayal in Benghazi: A Dereliction of Duty

Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi
June 29, 2016

Betrayal in Benghazi: A Dereliction of Duty
Key Findings:


 The Obama administration actively supported the replacement of quasi-secular North African rulers in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt with Muslim Brotherhood rule.

 In Libya, the Obama administration turned against Muammar Qaddafi, who had become an ally in the fight against the Global Jihad Movement, and instead worked with the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood and materially aided known AL-Qa’eda linked militias to topple his regime.

 The Obama administration throughout 2012 deliberately withheld urgently-requested security for the U.S. mission in Benghazi, at least in part to buttress the false narrative that al-Qa’eda had been defeated for the benefit of the president’s re-election campaign in 2012—despite the fact that Benghazi was one of the most vulnerable U.S. posts anywhere in the world in the volatile post-Qaddafi environment.

 For reasons not entirely clear, multiple advance warnings about an impending attack
against the U.S. mission in Benghazi were ignored by the Obama administration as a
whole, the Department of Defense specifically, and also especially Secretary of State
Hillary Clinton, who bore ultimate responsibility for diplomatic mission security.

 Despite an egregious failure by the Pentagon to pre-position forces in advance, various U.S. assets were available to deploy immediately when the Benghazi attack began the night of 11 September 2012, but were held back from even attempting a rescue effort.

 The President, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of Defense
Panetta, and Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, must be required to answer for their dereliction of duty (‘willfully refusing to perform ones duties,’ a criminal offense under the United States Code) in failing to provide appropriate protection in advance and to commit forces immediately to a rescue attempt the night of 11-12 September 2012.

 The Obama White House and Clinton State Department led a concerted two-week coverup regarding the facts of the Benghazi attack for crass political purposes and to
collaborate with the international campaign led by the Organization of Islamic
Cooperation that seeks criminalization of all criticism of Islam.

Executive Summary
The Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi (CCB) released its first Benghazi report, “How America Switched Sides in the War on Terror,” in April 2014. It detailed how the Obama administration rejected Muammar Qaddafi’s efforts to discuss a ceasefire and possible abdication, and facilitated the provision of arms to al-Qaeda linked rebels in Libya. It also covered the administration’s dereliction of duty in not sending military assets to help save the Americans in Benghazi and its shameful cover-up of the truth afterward. Now, two years later, our findings have been confirmed and amplified by additional evidence. We also know much more about the Benghazi terror attack, thanks to courageous individuals who have come forward, brave sources willing to speak up, the work of investigative journalists, and the incredible tenacity of the team at Judicial Watch.
We understand more about the reasoning behind why President Barack Obama involved the United States (U.S.) with Libya’s Islamic uprising (aka, ‘Arab Spring’) in the first place. It is evident that President Obama had an ideological commitment to support the extension of Muslim Brotherhood power across the Middle Eastern and North Africa (MENA) region, even if that meant knowingly supporting identifiable jihadis with the funding, training, and weapons to do it.1 On the other hand, evidence suggests that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, and unscrupulous individuals surrounding them decided to back the ouster of Libya’s leader Muammar Qaddafi at least in part for financial reasons, including an expectation of lucrative deals to follow. Nevertheless, the fact that Secretary of State Clinton knew that the leadership of the Libyan revolt against Muammar Qaddafi was dominated by the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood and militia forces connected to al-Qa’eda is demonstrated by a number of now public Clinton emails.
The Obama administration and Clinton Department of State refusal to provide adequate security measures for the U.S. mission in Benghazi flowed at least in part from political imperatives of 1 See references to Presidential Study Directive 11, the 2010 Obama White House document that solicited proposals and instructed key government agencies to collaborate on formation and execution of a plan for enabling Muslim Brotherhood rule by way of regime change in Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Yemen and likely other Middle East countries. The 18-page report remains classified in spite of all efforts to obtain its release.

the 2012 presidential election year, when campaign slogans pushed the narrative that Usama bin Laden was dead and al-Qa’eda was on the run. It would have seriously challenged that narrative to admit that U.S. policy in Libya had been an unmitigated disaster. Al-Qa’eda militias, which received recognition and assistance from our own officials, were now running amok, armed not only with the weapons the U.S. helped provide to them but with massive quantities of arms looted from Qaddafi’s former stockpiles. Denying repeated requests for additional security in Benghazi was the Obama administration’s way of pretending that nothing was amiss there and hoping the place wouldn’t blow up completely—at least until after the November 2012 elections were behind them. This explanation alone is not entirely satisfactory, however, and other factors (including gross incompetence), should be considered. Bottom line, though, there is no possible excuse for this policy and those responsible for it must be held accountable before the American people.
Thanks in large measure to the willingness of several courageous members of the Benghazi CIA Annex’s Global Response Staff (GRS) to speak out, we also know now that there were multiple advance warnings before the attack of 11 September 2012 that should have alerted the Departments of Defense and State, the Intelligence Community (IC), and the White House to impending disaster. The warnings were all ignored, with catastrophic results. The most egregious dereliction of duty came during the night of 11-12 September 2012, when brave Americans battled alone for hours against overwhelming odds while the government that sent them in harm’s way did not even attempt a rescue mission. We know now that U.S. forces were available in multiple locations, including Aviano Air Base and Naval Air Station Sigonella in Italy, at the Rota Naval Base in Spain, and the Commander’s In-Extremis Force in Croatia, in addition to Foreign Emergency Support Teams (FEST). Someone in the U.S. chain of command decided not to send any of these forces into Libya to help. Further, the interagency task force called the Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG), established by presidential directive precisely for such terror attacks as this one, was not convened.

Secretary of State Clinton must be held responsible for her failure to provide adequate protection to the SMC in Benghazi in the months leading up to the attack, as well as for her failure to immediately request permission from the Libyan government for cross-border authority, and then to convey that authority to available U.S. military forces. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, as well as USCINCEUR Adm. James G. Stavridis and USAFRICOM Commander General Carter F. Ham, all share responsibility for their failure to pre-position U.S. military forces in the face of so much advance warning about the situation in Benghazi. They also failed to insist on the timely dispatch of forces to at least attempt a rescue the night of the attack. But the ultimate responsibility for the Benghazi disaster lies with the commander-in-chief, President Barack Obama. To date, no one has been willing even to say where he was that night or what specific orders he may have issued (if any) before disappearing from the scene. That information needs to be subpoenaed under oath forthwith.

Lastly, the Obama administration cover-up that followed the Benghazi debacle served only to add insult to injury by denying the truth about what happened to the American people and suppressing with a heavy hand those who had been personally involved and who wanted to speak out. Instead, a hastily-concocted false narrative about a YouTube video was fed to the media and public alike in a campaign quickly, but efficiently, coordinated with the administration’s domestic and international Muslim Brotherhood networks. The objective was to conceal the fact that al-Qa’eda-linked jihadis attacked our mission and killed four Americans that night. From their perspective, blaming a video that violated the Islamic Law on slander also bolstered the global campaign to criminalize criticism of Islam led by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), a close working partner of the Clinton State Department.
The following report is not intended to cover every single aspect of the Benghazi debacle, but will add new details to the CCB’s earlier reporting on each of these phases of the Benghazi attack: before, during, and after. The thrust of our investigation has been not merely to document the sequence of events, but, more importantly, to reveal the reasons why the Obama administration and the Clinton State Department so radically changed U.S. policy in the war against the Global Jihad Movement (GJM) in ways that benefited this country’s worst enemies.
In so doing, these leaders also allowed a terror assault against our Benghazi mission that took the lives of four Americans, and then sought mendaciously to cover it all up for weeks afterward.

Our Citizens’ Commission was formed in 2013 with the unsettling sense that neither the Congressional Committees, the State Department’s Accountability Review Board (ARB), the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), nor even Representative Trey Gowdy’s (R-SC) Select Committee on Benghazi would report these events in a way that was fully accurate and complete. It is therefore hoped that this report will provide much-needed information to the American people. The families of the fallen have a right to know and so we join our efforts with theirs to press rightful demands for accountability from our top officials who so badly failed in their Constitutional duties, not only on that fateful night in Benghazi, but before and after the events that unfolded there as well.

Nonsensical Climate Change: Animal Farm Is Here! » Politichicks.com

In late June, an agreement was reached between the United States, Mexico, and Canada aimed at addressing the issue of climate change. The pledge calls for cutting greenhouse gas emissions from oil and related industries, along with the implementation of cross-border energy transmission systems and development of clean energy sources. Ironically, part of the inspiration for the deal was a desire to strengthen cooperation between the North American nations after an important US-Canadian energy project, the Keystone XL oil pipeline, was rejected by American President Barack Obama – a move that weakened American energy independence and had an as-yet unforeseen impact on domestic jobs.

This agreement is the latest in a series of environmentalist paranoia regarding climate change and human industrial activity in general. The people behind it labor under the delusion that cutting emissions of carbon dioxide is clearly more important than addressing the national security threat posed by Islamic terror, growing our economy, and other crucial concerns. They also suffer from the curious shared hallucination that North America is a planet, rather than one among six inhabited continents.

Now California has introduced the first bill of its kind, allowing for the prosecution of climate change opposition–basically making it illegal to engage in climate-change dissent. The bill 1161, California Climate Science Truth and Accountability Act of 2016, is essentially, another assault on businesses and organizations that possibly could directly or indirectly engage in “unfair competition with respect to scientific evidence regarding the existence, extent, or current or future impacts of anthropogenic induced climate change,” the State Senate Rules Committee’s. This gobbledygook clears the way for litigations against fossil-fuel companies, think-tanks and others that have “deceived or misled” the public on the risks of climate change.  I see this as a prophecy for a California “Animal Farm”  the State has degenerated into totalitarian government.

Even if the US, Canada, and Mexico cut their greenhouse gas emissions drastically overnight – which no one is even proposing, in favor of more gradual reductions – its net effect on global human emissions would be negligible. There might even be negative reduction – emissions growth. That’s because developing economies with many times the population of North America, such as India and China, are aggressively industrializing and have shown no interest in hobbling their own growth in service to Western environmental concerns. Effectively, we can’t do anything to cut the amount of carbon dioxide that humanity pumps into the air.

global_warming_hoax

What we can do, unfortunately, is cripple the American economy at precisely the time it needs to be picking up steam. We have real international trade pressures coming from the aforementioned foreign powers – India and China – and we need to focus on being competitive with them. We also need to focus on maintaining the capacity for a strong, impregnable national defense. In a world of Islamic terrorism, to do any less is downright suicidal.

If these people really are so worried about the environment – a noble concern, so long as it is not placed above national security – then what they should really be pushing for is intelligent implementation of clean energy. Then it has to be done right, and it can’t come at the cost of throwing away our oil and gas industries overnight. The correct way to approach this challenge is to allow the free market to lead us into the future. We accomplish this by incentivizing clean energy development and deployment, offering tax credits to companies that do this work. As money flows into energy sources like wind and solar – naturally, not because the government mandates it – the market for dirtier sources will gradually diminish, giving businesses and workers in those industries needed time to retool and adjust to a changing energy economy. We can do this, but we must do it the right way – the capitalist way.

The most important effect of this strategy is that it preserves and even adds jobs in important industries, rather than sacrificing them on the altar of environmental awareness as punitive emissions caps against oil and gas do. We need to be looking at ways to strengthen and grow out economy while simultaneously addressing environmental issues, not throw one concern away in our need to worship the other. This is why the actions of the environmentalist left are irresponsible – not because it isn’t important to preserve and improve our environment, but because they’re going about it wrongly – and very dangerously.

Independence Day – Tea Party Nation

We at Tea Party Nation wish you a happy Independence Day.  And we encourage you to take a moment and read the document that gave us a free nation.

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds 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 of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to 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 unalienable 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 to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute 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. —

Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.

He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.

He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.

He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:

  • For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
  • For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:
  • For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:
  • For imposing taxes on us without our consent:
  • For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:
  • For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses:
  • For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:
  • For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:
  • For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.1377023_632027936839875_306360385_n

He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions. 

In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.

We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.Image

Gun Control, Terror Watchlist — The NRA and the Rule of Law

By Dave Dolbee published on June 30, 2016 in News

America witnessed a remarkable and telling legislative showdown last week that revolved around a very simple concept underlying American democracy. That concept is due process. Some were willing to discard it for the sake of politics and the illusion of safety. Others were not. Here is what the NRA had to say about it:

Senate Judiciary Committee

Unable to sway the Congress to enact his gun control agenda, the president is trying to upset the Founding Father’s system of checks and balances by going it alone.

A series of untenable gun control proposals – some which would have placed your Second Amendment rights at the mercy of bureaucratic fiat, black lists, and secret “evidence” – were defeated.

But the degree to which some were willing to abandon foundational principles for short-term and self-serving political gain should serve as a sobering reminder to all that American freedom is not free and that we should never think our government will simply default to it. The Founders understood that, which is why we have a written Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Proponents of gun control tried to portray the showdown as being over those who wanted terrorists to have guns and those who don’t. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT), a gun control standard-bearer, disgraced the dignity of his office by claiming “Republicans have decided to sell weapons to ISIS.”

Think about how ridiculous that statement is.

And it becomes all the more ridiculous in light of how strenuously President Obama, who embodies the values and agenda of Murphy’s politics, tried to deflect the blame for the Orlando terrorist attack away from radical Islamic jihad, the asserted basis of the attacker himself.

I am a bill cartoon

While the defenders of the Second Amendment have seen significant victories over the past year a couple of recent losses are troubling.

Obama loyalists desperately tried to portray NRA and the Second Amendment as the culprits in the Orlando attacks. During a series of publicity stunts – including Murphy’s “filibuster” on the Senate Floor and a “sit-in” by members of Congress on the House Floor – America heard again and again that gun control is now a matter of national security.

During times of fear and crisis, it’s easy to forget what we’re about as a country. It’s natural for opportunistic and ambitious politicians to grab more power for themselves. It’s natural for entrenched authority to demonize opposition and try to suppress dissent. We saw all of that this past week.

But America has always tried to be better than that, which is why the Constitution is the supreme law of the land. It is greater than any individual. It is mightier than any institution. And it states that no person shall be “deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law ….” Whatever else Obama, Murphy, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and their surrogates in the media tried to make this past week’s contentious legislative efforts about, that’s what was at stake.

The government cannot arbitrarily deny or withhold rights. When someone’s life, liberty, or property is at stake, the person has a right to notice and the opportunity to respond, and the government bears the burden of making its case before a neutral decision-maker as to why its actions are justified. Without these simple principles, we are not a country of laws.

But that was too much for Feinstein, Murphy, and their anti-gun Senate colleagues. They would settle for nothing less than giving bureaucrats the authority to deny gun purchases at will, without any proving of their case. They would not stand (literally, in the case of their House counterparts) to require the government, if it were later sued over the deprivation, to have to prove anything other than a basis for its own “reasonable suspicion” against the individual. The want to let the government, in other words, retroactively rationalize its decision to abolish a fundamental right – not by actually proving a person is somehow a public safety risk because of nexus to terrorism – but by demonstrating it was not “unreasonable” in “suspecting” so at the time.

That’s not due process.

Make no mistake, the NRA does not want terrorists to have legal – or illegal – access to firearms.  NRA members have fought and died in the war on terror so we take a backseat to no one when it comes to national security.

Freedom endured this week in the U.S. Senate, but it would not have been possible without the dedication of NRA members who were willing to stand up and contact their elected officials in the face of this latest threat.  NRA members flooded Congressional switchboards in just a few short days, and it worked.  Your continued vigilance has always been what makes the NRA the strongest civil rights organization in the world.

At the same time, our victory would not have been possible without the Second Amendment leadership of Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA).  Both senators introduced legislation to protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners and worked tirelessly against passage of the gun control legislation introduced by Feinstein, Murphy, and others.  We could not have been successful without them.

But let’s be careful to not consider the battle over.  The Senate will remain in session this coming week, so your continued pressure is needed.  Gun control proposals could go well beyond the amendments that were voted on last week, so please contact your U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative immediately and let them know you oppose any new gun control measures. You can call your lawmakers at 202-224-3121 or click here to Take Action.
