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.

The Real 14th Amendment What They Don't Teach in School

“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.

OK, Where Do We Keep the Torches & Pitchforks?

OK, Where Do We Keep the Torches & Pitchforks?
Any attorney will tell you, when a case (or confirmation hearing) is going badly, create doubt and confusion. On with the show.

When Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) released the accusation against Judge Kavanaugh, having waited 45-days for just the right time, it turned the confirmation process, as planned, upside down. Republicans are rightly being cautious while Democrats are predictably screaming outrage, raising pitchforks and torches, storming the gates, ready to throw the first stone. They are calling for a full investigation which they know could take months. It would take us past the midterm elections and, if they take over the Senate, almost certainly result in dumping Kavanaugh. The Left will not allow another conservative on the bench. Never mind they lost the last presidential election. They never accepted it and show few signs they plan to do so. To Democrats, elections only have consequences to Republicans.

Against All Enemies, Foreign and Domestic

The New Communists
A news piece written in Breitbart several days ago seems to have received scant attention. I did not see it on network TV, cable or in any other news service that I frequent. It is an important story because in many ways…as California goes, so goes the nation.

It has been reported that a left-wing political analyst/forecaster by the name of Joel Kotkin has said recently that left-wing progressives have joined in a political alliance with Silicon Valley oligarchs to move America into a oligarchical socialism…to “trap Americans in a cramped future without hope of upward mobility for themselves or their families.”

The Most Important Issue In Washington…How to Get Rid of Trump

The Most Important Issue In Washington…How to Get Rid of Trump
To be Trump you have to be strong, very strong. You have to know how to translate a vision into reality and how to turn a problem into a challenge. You have to know yourself as well as your enemies. A great leader must know what has to be done and cannot be deterred by convention.

In President Trump’s case, his resistance is not mere difference of opinion as to what is essential. To the whole of the Beltway, Donald Trump is an outsider, a germ, a foreign body, he doesn’t belong. He doesn’t ignore what he knows he must do. He’s supposed to do what everyone else has tried but without success. But, that is okay as long as he looks like he’s working hard. The priority is to get re-elected, not accomplish anything. There is a difference.

Requiem For a Party - Sleeping With The Enemy

Requiem For a Party - Sleeping With The Enemy
After a sordid history of slavery, the KKK, and Jim Crow, the Democratic Party in the early 1960s enjoyed ‘one brief shining moment’. Kennedy-style liberalism brought a pledge to further civil rights, equal rights under the law. It stood up against communism, made a commitment to conquer space, lower taxes and fiscal responsibility.

Now we are witness to a takeover of a major political party in America and it’s a two-pronged attack. It has been in the works for decades and they are nearing its completion.

Civil Discourse or Civil War?

Jun 30, 2018 — Ray DiLorenzo

Civil Discourse or Civil War
In 1860, the Democrat Party refused to accept the election of Abraham Lincoln. They were convinced he was an abolitionist that would put an end to their ‘peculiar institution’. He was not. Lincoln often spoke against slavery, but his main objective was to preserve the Union while keeping slavery out of the new territories.

The American Civil War was not a civil war at all. It was a war of secession. The South had no interest in taking over the seats of government in Washington. They merely wanted out of the Union. Today’s Democrat Party does not want out, they want in and they want it all.

Stormy Out, Child Abuse In

Stormy Out, Child Abuse In
The Democrats and their media comrades have worked hard to trash the President-Elect and now the President. Since day one they have tried to connect Trump to some Russia collusion conspiracy. But, after eighteen months, the story has not been able to stick. In fact, it may end up achieving the opposite effect. Last month it was Stormy Daniels. That trouncing hasn’t worked either. Poor Democrats, they don’t seem to be able to take the high ground on sexual assault stories.

Now that they haven’t achieved any traction thus far, the Left has decided to throw another piece of dirt on the wall to see if it sticks…child abuse. No one looked twice when Obama separated kids from their parents and housed them in detention centers, with photos to prove it. But now, somehow, it’s different. It’s a Republican. On Thursday, the Democrats even sent their loyal bag man, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) to Fox News to tell Trump supporters that their President is a “cold, con artist” who “hates kids and wants to see them suffer.”

Lighten Up, America It’s Not Your Fault

Lighten Up, America It's Not Your Fault
The United States and other Western nations have been assaulted with Political Correctness (PC), the repudiation of saying what you think. It seems to have come from nowhere and on the surface it appears to protect minorities or the disadvantaged from being marginalized. In reality, it is designed to create dissatisfaction with the status quo, culturally, politically, socially, and economically, while creating victimology and deep division among people and groups. It is a loss of proportion, an absence of humor and the freedom to laugh at oneself. It pits good people against each other.

PC is not a new phenomena. It is at least 100 years old and finds its genesis in Marxist theology during World War I.

The Rousing of America: A Memorial Day Tribute
Memorial Day is a time for remembering those that died while serving our country. And so we shall. But this year, let’s also remember the multitude of Americans that have and are dedicating themselves to the restoration of this great nation…the people that have placed themselves on the front lines of a battle for our very existence from those that would destroy our country as founded - the Conservative writers, speakers, radio and TV news analysts, parents that monitor school curriculum, citizens that attend town hall meetings, veterans, and all the dependable voters who refuse to buy into liberal, anti-American theology.
