Is Our Tent Collapsing

Mar 23, 2019 — Ray DiLorenzo

Is Our Tent CollapsingNations are like tents. There are small ones. There are large ones. There are tents that are great, and others that are weak and feeble. But, one thing that is certain, all tents are temporary. They usually rot from within. A tent can take so much decomposition and then it collapses.

Our tent is 243 years old, relatively young considering nations like Egypt or Greece or even human history. But, as youth sometimes can be, nations can become complacent and thoughtless, and forget or ignore their heritage. Our country took a turn some time back and it has now become evident that the price may very well be collapse.

OK, I’m Angry…I’m Tired of The Stupid Left!

Mar 18, 2019 — Ray DiLorenzo

OK, I'm Angry…I'm Tired of The Stupid Left!I am sick and tired of the Left in this country. They are a bunch of cry babies with the intelligence of a gnat. They preach love and tolerance and hate everyone.

I am sick and tired of secular liberal college professors, who couldn’t survive 24 hours in the real world, telling me how to live. They say they teach higher education when, in reality, it’s lower education than my grade school. They are so dumb that they haven’t even figured out that in a world they would create, they would be the first eliminated.

An Age of Universal Deceit

Mar 12, 2019 — Ray DiLorenzo

An Age of Universal DeceitWhat is slowly coming to light, a sort of gradual clearing of the mist and fog, is a conspiracy and scandal so immense and fantastic that it dwarfs even the minds of writers of political fiction. It is a story of deceit, power and the clenching of it, with a resistance to let go not seen in American history going back at least 150 years. This defiance was intensified by a brash, albeit politically naive outsider, an individual that, in spite of his affluence, was not and could never be a member of the political elite if they could help it.

Dems Planning to Eliminate Red States

Mar 2, 2019 — Ray DiLorenzo

Dems Planning to Eliminate Red StatesThe next national election will be contentious. Given that Democrats have literally lost their minds over the last one, they plan on never losing another national election. There is no doubt that Democrats, especially new leaders coming on the scene, want a secular socialist government with all vestiges of Judeo-Christianity removed. It competes with their progressive socialist theology. They will not abide with another Republican win. This is how they think they will do it.

Selling Mass Delusion..Again

A lie told often enough becomes the truth, Lenin
“A lie told often enough becomes the truth.”—Lenin

Our nation has been under assault, morally, spiritually, fiscally, politically, educationally, and culturally for several generations. We have been fed deceit, ignorance and delusion for decades. The political party that tore the nation apart 150 years ago, fighting to preserve slavery is now determined to enslave the entire country in a system of total dependence under the guise of ‘social justice’. All we have to do is give these purveyors of lies a little bit of our liberty. They call it Democratic Socialism.

The 25% Party: What The Heck Is Going On?

The 25% Party: What The Heck Is Going On?President Trump: ”...America is committed to ending illegal immigration and putting the ruthless coyotes, cartels, and human traffickers out of business….we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.”

Democrat women demonstrating their disapproval by their reaction to President Trump’s SOTU.

The Democrat Party has come to a crossroads. Since the thirties of the last century, they have built their party on the promises typical of a welfare state. The Great Society of the sixties was originally designed by Lyndon Johnson to keep the Black community quiet and voting Democrat. The government handouts, now having accumulated in the trillions, has created a large section of the population accustomed to FREE. Under Obama, Food Stamp recipients increased by 42% (FactCheck) while welfare increased by 41% (Independent Sentinel). By late 2016, the national debt had been doubled. Many Republicans, not wanting to be left out of the vote pile, also participated.

Democrats Receive Double Whammy But Haven’t Figured It Out Yet

Democrats Receive Double Whammy But Haven't Figured It Out Yet
Study in Contrast and Division or Just Hypocrisy: One World Trade lit pink in celebration of new abortion law and the NY memorial to unborn babies killed in 9/11 attack. On the Right: Venezuela faces civil war

Not many people may see it, but the Democrat Party has been hit hard with two punches that just may seal their fate in 2020 and beyond. One is the Democrat pro-socialist argument, with Venezuela about to totally implode with civil war. The other is the ‘conventional wisdom’ of the Democrats, the media, and Hollywood concerning unrestricted abortion while the majority of Americans from both parties are in opposition.

Abortion remains the liberal’s hallowed sacrament. It is their sign of independence from everything that is moral, holy and Judeo-Christian.

God Told Nehemiah To Build a Wall

Jan 26, 2019 — Ray DiLorenzo

God Told Nehemiah To Build a WallAfter the Babylonian Captivity, a remnant of Jews returned to Jerusalem. They had rebuilt their temple and now needed a wall for protection. God told Nehemiah, who was neither a priest nor politician, but a builder, to rebuild the broken walls around Jerusalem. The destruction and deterioration of Jerusalem’s wall exposed its people to harm and was a source of disgrace. A new wall would be a warning to Israel’s enemies. It would provide protection and dignity to a people that suffered the judgment of God but had later been restored. A broken wall left its people defenseless. It would allow enemies to enter and cause “great trouble” to its people. Rebuilding the wall showed God’s blessing in that he wanted them protected.

Colleges Are Breeding Grounds for Civil War

Colleges Are Breeding Grounds for Civil War
We have become a nation of angry people. Too many of us carry a chip on our shoulder and find racism everywhere, sexism everywhere, misogyny rampant, homophobia out of control. It is no wonder we have masked leftists lashing out with violence, a new congresswoman making profanity-laced speeches demanding President Trump’s impeachment. We now have a Democrat majority House of Representatives with scores of avowed communists in their ranks who are in no mood to cooperate with the system as founded, but to overturn it.

Heather MacDonald, political commentator, essayist, attorney, and journalist says that universities and colleges in America today are breeding grounds for hate and planting seeds for civil war. Students are being trained by cultural Marxists in faculty and administration and it’s been going on for decades.

With Liberty And Justice For Some

With Liberty And Justice For Some
“The Justice Department is stuck because if they go after Comey they have to go after Hillary. Comey and Hillary are in the same legal boat.” Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch

“Equal Justice Under Law” is engraved on the front of the Supreme Court building. The Pledge of Allegiance, which is hardly recited anymore, proudly says “...with Liberty and Justice for All.”

Equal justice under the law is not merely a caption on a building. It is the framework of our entire legal system. It has set us apart from corrupt societies for almost 250 years. But, somehow, we have turned a corner, deciding instead to refute the law and depend, instead, on our feelings, political philosophy and ambition.

The Cost of Dirty Politics

The Cost of Dirty Politics
Contentious meeting with Pelosi and Schumer, who refused to look at the President

“There is no better test of a man’s integrity than his behavior when he is wrong.” —Marvin Williams

For those who have no conscience or integrity, it is a wonderful thing to want something very badly and figure out how to get someone else to pay for it. Why we have an immigration problem is no mystery. It is not the lack of laws or regulations. It is politicians doing what they do best, calculating on how to stay in power. Yes, there are some big businesses and individuals that benefit from illegal immigration…the low wages, but when a political party loses the majority of the middle class, a scheme to create a new underclass they can buy off and depend on for votes becomes vital.

Let Them Eat Cake

Let Them Eat Cake
“Global warming is the biggest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it.” —John Coleman, meteorologist and founder of The Weather Channel

Paris is experiencing major riots they haven’t seen in fifty years. Protesters say this is the start of a revolution which will eclipse the rioting that occurred in 1968 when France was near civil war. Citizens are protesting a gas tax increase designed to discourage the purchase of vehicles that contribute to climate change. Diesel, the most popular fuel in France is currently $6.35 per gallon after a previous 20% hike and is expected to go to $6.60 per gallon on January 1st. As of late, the protests have widened to include high taxes in general, immigration, and a lowering of the standard of living. Socialist policies are beginning to destroy France. The straw on the camel’s back has climate change written on it and it’s nearing the breaking point.

This is a wake-up call!

This is a wake-up call!
The migrant invasion that has engulfed Europe is now attempting a replay in America. These past several years saw the European continent being inundated with migrants, mostly Muslim, military age males, people with no history or culture of democracy. They have turned European society upside down with massive crime, and culture chaos, at the same time bleeding the taxpayers with substantial social expenditures. In France there are separate Islamic societies, no-go zones where police will not enter, and Sharia law with all its brutality has displaced French law.

We are now witness to the same playbook in our own country, this time with migrants from Central and South America and probably other parts of the world as well. They are mostly military-age males with many robbing and stealing their way to the U.S., people with no history or concern for a stable democratic republic. Most of them know their basic needs will be taken care of, but without the opportunity to better themselves since they are illegal, they will probably be indigent indefinitely.

So, Who Are the Real Fascists?

So, Who Are the Real Fascists?
When a political party in the United States no longer believes in the ideals in which their nation was founded, when a political party expresses dissatisfaction with its nation’s Constitution, when a political party pushes Socialism (a system of government that has never been successful in history), when a political party ignores its own immigration laws to allow millions of migrants illegal entry hoping to create more party members and to destroy the culture of the host country, one of two things is happening. Either that party wants to create a new country from the top down or they are only interested in power. In this case, it is both.

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States.”....

Illegal immigration is a red-hot topic of conversation these days made even hotter recently by thousands of migrants heading towards the United States southern border, determined to break through.

If The Left Had Their Way—How We Got Here

If The Left Had Their Way--How We Got Here
As I write this article there are thousands of people walking, riding part way, determined to enter the United States, legally or otherwise to join the 20+ million other illegal immigrants already in the country.

America has raised government, a standard of living, and a security level to a point never before seen anywhere in the world. And yet, we live in a country of contradictions and dichotomy. How did we get to a place where so many Americans question the most successful social and political culture in human history? We have self-government, capitalism, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom to defend oneself, the freedom to be all you can be, and yet America is viciously disparaged by millions who, at the same time, are reaping its benefits. How did this happen? How did we get here?

If the Left Had Their Way What Would It Be Like
With all that is going on today in our social and political culture, especially the audacious unmasking of what liberals and the Democrat Party are now demanding, it would not be difficult to imagine an America ruled by the Left, the modern liberal, the modern Democrat Party. I say modern liberal because it is a far cry from the classic liberal of the forgotten past.

The classic liberal would advocate Constitutional Republicanism, a limited government with basic inalienable rights entrusted upon its people, shared equally by all its citizens, of all races, bestowed by God. It was envisioned by our founders that all were created equal in the law and then allowed to be let loose to become all you can be with limited government and few limits. It was what many of us fought to reestablish in the 60s and 70s.

What Democrats Are Willing to Do (And Not Willing to Do)

What Democrats Are Willing to Do (And Not Willing to Do)
It now has become clear even to the most stubborn skeptic that Democrats will do anything to win, gain power and stay there. They are united in their mission like never before. If there are any moderate Democrats or classic liberals remaining besides Alan Dershowitz, they are silent.

George Washington warned the nation that political parties will produce leaders that will have more loyalty to party than to country. It certainly is true today. The loyalty to the Democrat Party is absolute. Even Bernie Sanders, an Independent and Socialist, saw fit to run for the presidency as a Democrat.

The Trap Republicans Fell Into

The Trap Republicans Fell Into
Senator Flake really did it this time. He learned nothing from his co-workers and predecessors. Flake actually believed his Democrat colleagues.

In their zeal to appear fair, the Republicans, led by Flake, fell into the trap set by Democrats. They will now almost certainly parade additional accusers from under any rock they can find.
