The nation is still in the midst of a serious struggle on many fronts to determine if the nation can continue to persevere as a free nation, or whether home-grown Marxists will destroy the nation as citizens know it. With the comments of Hillary Clinton and conservative talk-show hosts revising their perspectives on the reality of the 2020 election, it aligns with what my article in last Thursday’s Canada Free Press and in this newsletter had questioned — whether the 2020 election is really about an election, or a pretend election. Leftists-Marxists-Socialists are truly planning to remove President Trump from the White House one way or another. It is serious.
We have dedicated last Thursday’s edition to a focus on revealing the evils of Communism as Leftists-Marxists-Socialists are pervading the culture with immorality, propaganda, and serious violence. On Constitution Day this year, they are planning to place the White House under siege and do whatever additional harm they possibly could. Recently, Governor Andrew Cuomo stated that if Donald Trump comes back to New York, he would need an army to accompany him, as in his mind the New Yorkers hate him so much. Yesterday was Labor Day – a traditional Socialist holiday, but with law enforcement crackdowns going on all across the country, whatever the Left was attempting to launch this past weekend did not manifest in the way it was imagined in their minds. In part, it can also be attributed to a revival of faith within the people in different parts of the country: faith in God and faith in the nation as it was founded.
In our nation’s history, there have been several periods of turbulence, and the nation still stands, the Constitution still prevails, and the flag still waves. But it has been the faith of the people that was necessary to fight back the efforts of evil men. In some instances, it may have seemed so dark and hopeless. But, it is not hopeless; it is just a time in which people need to be absolutely serious about what future they would be willing to fight to ensure. In my article today, I share some of that history. At the turn of the last century, when violence almost tore America apart, it was a time much like today. I wrote the article last year on the history of Labor Day and the seeds of Socialism that were planted at such a time.
Author Kevin McCarthy provides a great article that goes back further in time, as he provides a glimpse into why our Founders were so careful in how they laid the foundations for this nation. He utilizes a visit to the home of James Madison to share a realization that even there, Marxists have gnawed away at the true fabric of the Constitution. He explains that one of Madison’s most critical quotations about the necessity for a Constitution had been reduced to the opposite of his original intent. He shares that such revisionism has laid the groundwork for today’s onslaught.
To me, it is like termites that eat the framework of a home before the homeowner realizes he has any kind of termite problem. And, the homeowners alone cannot solve the problem. But, they must take action, or they will lose their precious home.
We also offer an article from guest writer Justin Hankins of the Heartland Institute and Stopping Socialism.com. Last year at this time, we featured a video from him that we will also offer in our “Video Views” section. It is the video we recommend re-visiting, but in our recommendation, all help in getting serious about what is happening in America
Author A. Dru Kristenev offers an article today, originally posted in Canada Free Press, that delves into a topic of increasing concern among conservatives and Christians about the support provided by big business, specifically huge corporations, to Black Lives Matter, a known Marxist organization. Kristenev provides a perceptive examination into the recent phenomenon and is able to go a little further into what Michael Lewinski wrote about last week in his article titled, “Corporate suicide.” It is like how a person would finance their own assassination.
Today, Michael Lewinski provides another article dealing with Socialism as he provides a brief glimpse into what he sees as the choices in the 2020 election, and that choice is between “Socialism or Freedom.” Democracy was born in ancient Greece under similar circumstances, only at that time, it was a monarchy, or oligarchy vs. lawlessness of the mob. So “democracy” came to be an uncomfortable compromise between the tyranny of a king and the tyranny of the mob. That is why the Founders created a Republic and not a democracy. Today, Lewinski is saying, the choice is between the tyranny of the lawless mob represented by the Socialist-Democrats and the freedom that the Founders established.
We have made the recommendation for the video to watch, but there are so many other videos and articles in this edition to help readers get clear about the time we are living in. It can be a time in which fear could prevail. But, fear itself is what should be feared. It is a time in which faith needs to be revived, and more fully put to good use.
Labor Day: Socialists Still Seeking to Bring Fundamental Defeat to Our Fundamental Values
By Dennis Jamison – originally posted in Canada Free Press on 9/3/2019 (this is an updated version)
On the threshold of the 2020 elections in the United States, the “Democratic” Party has fielded two candidates who have embraced Socialism as the real direction America should take in the future. Former President Obama had attempted to promote the illusion that his White House was pro-business, and focused primarily on creating jobs. However, a different standard of economic health within the nation had disproved a number of Obama’s narratives. It is likely that Obama had someone in mind as he said those interesting words—a mentor perhaps, or some puppet master capable of pulling Obama’s strings. But regardless of who was pulling strings, a real Socialist, if looking down from “Socialist heaven” would be quite proud of how far and how quickly the “Democratic” Party has “progressed” from Obama to Bernie Sanders to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — and now “whomever” is pulling Joe Biden’s strings (which is not that hard).
In the midterm elections of 2018, American citizens became more aware of the “sudden” rise of the socialists in the “Democratic” Party in victories in California, New York, and in Florida. In California, Kevin de Leon put up a serious challenge to Democrat Dianne Feinstein, to take away her senate seat. Also, in New York and Florida, Bernie Sanders-styled socialists made serious inroads to maneuver the Party further to the Left – even to the edge of sanity. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a clear example of a seismic shift in the “Democratic” Party. The Democratic Socialists of America are on the rise.
A few years ago, it was one of those early spring perfect days and, as is often my habit on such days, I find an opportunity to avoid work at all costs. Of course, spring-fever being highly contagious, and with no masking or social distancing to deter it, I was easily able to infect my wife. “Shall we head west and take a drive into the rolling hills of Virginia … perhaps we can cruise down the Skyline Drive?” Sounded like a plan and, it was, so off we went.
Then, I had an inspiration. As Virginia is so replete with American history, why not head toward a site often overlooked by tourists who, naturally, gravitate more toward the Mt. Vernon and Monticello historical sites. We decided to explore the home of James Madison at Montpelier, just west of Orange, Virginia. In recent years, the Montpelier site has had an extensive upgrade to bring it up to par with the other more famous aforementioned Virginia sites.
The grounds were absolutely beautiful, placed near the rolling foothills approaching the Blue Ridge mountains. The Madison family certainly had purchased, in 1723, a most choice picturesque plot of land. The grounds today stretch over 2,000 acres and with miles of walking trails. The main house tour is a virtual return to the late 18th century when James and Dolly Madison were living there.
Most of the confusion over socialism is understandable, as I’ll explain elsewhere on this website, but it has also presented significant challenges and opportunities for those who have embraced this ideology. Because people generally don’t understand what socialism is, socialists, liberals, and progressives have been able to sway many people into identifying as “socialist” despite having very little in common with the historical ideas associated with this political philosophy. When Westerners think of socialism, even self-described socialists, they typically imagine specific socialized industries or authoritarian regimes, but rarely do they contemplate the socialized societies Marx and others dreamed of making.
For instance, many American socialists support single-payer health care, free college tuition, and other progressive policy ideas, but very few of these people openly advocate for the socialization of agriculture or requiring all industries to be collectively owned.
Corporate dupes – easy marks (Marx?) for BLM bagmen
Modern big business has been overrun by management trained in Marxist universities. Having no clue that free enterprise is the driving force behind profitable commerce, business graduates now view the word “profit” as evil. The contradiction in literal terms is turning corporate America upside-down, making business pawns of society rather than leaders.
The scam of the century is on display, recorded by armies of camera-wielding “protesters.” Buckling to the roiling crowds burning and pillaging all within their grasp, corporations are willingly and foolishly paying protection money for a service that doesn’t exist. The mobs, copying the modus operandi of 20th Century mafiosos, are giddily extorting billions of dollars from corporate dupes who think they can buy appeasement of uncontrollable looters whose only interest is acquiring ill-gotten goods.
Accusing corporations of “white privilege” Black Lives Matter bagmen are hauling in “donations” to call off their goons. Except BLM has no intention of curbing their destruct squads or telling them to stand down. The money is being used to arm the vandals with more and more lethal weapons that demolish the businesses corporate leaders think they’re shelling out good money to save. It’s a racket taking politicians and commerce leaders for patsies. Cajoling, coddling and feeding tantrums encourages more bad behavior. Any parent with common sense could counsel corporate enablers with that tidbit of advice.
The Democratic Socialist agenda is the antithesis of President Trump’s second-term American agenda. Whereas Trump will create 10 million jobs in 10 months, Biden will destroy 5.5 million jobs. Whereas Trump will create 1 million new small businesses, Biden will destroy businesses. Biden will burden workers with new taxes; President Trump will cut taxes to boost take-home pay and keep jobs in America.
China Joe will not protect American jobs; President Trump will. Joe Biden will not expand opportunity zones; Trump will do so. President Trump will continue deregulating the economy; sleepy Joe will bring back damaging regulations.
Whereas President Trump will not allow contracts from the Federal Government to go to companies outsourcing to China, that would be fine with VP Biden. Joe will not allow President Trump’s planned 100% expensing deductions for essential industries like pharmaceuticals and robotics which bring back their manufacturing to the United States. President Trump will end our reliance on China. This is a much different future from what the Socialists have planned for America.
