If It is True

The News coverage and impeachment hearings resemble Pravda and the Soviet show trials of the past.  Secret courts, hidden testimony, with carefully leaked and coordinated daily nuggets of damnation.

It is impressive that Americans will follow this without at least a little surprise and a few questions. The prevailing attitude seems to be, “Oh, well.” The facts, circumstances and consequences have no part, as long as the Deep Hate can provide something unpleasant.

The Deep Hate lives in the The Swamp. It keeps poking up from the muck as Trump’s Presidency continues to open the drain.

The new “evidence” against the President sounds silly in proper context. He asked the new President of the Ukraine to investigate corruption involving the former Administration of the United States. If there is truth to it, we had eight years of truly questionable administration under Obama and Biden that should certainly be exposed and not continued.

If it is true.

If it is not true, it would have fallen away quietly with the Ukrainian report. What is the status of that report, by the way?

One irony in this dirty mess is that the exact charges leveled against Trump first appeared as fabrications manufactured by the Democrats to destroy Trump before he was elected in 2016 by the same crowd that violated Bernie Sanders and the Democrats who supported him.

The greatest irony, however, is that the truth is not upsetting. Trump asked for an investigation, leveraging money already allocated to the Ukraine. Applying this standard of Impeachment faithfully and consistently would mean nobody could ever be President.  And assurances are strong that the next President will be treated normally again . . . as long as he stays away from the Deep Hate that owns us.

We had a good run as a nation.

 

Progressive National Socialism

From the beginning, Progressive Socialism has meant the fixed path to Communism, the Borg of Star Trek. Yet those appealing to the “joys of Socialism” never recall that. The many trials of Socialism are not remembered as Socialism, but something else.  In spite of the total adoption of Marxist and Leninist doctrine and the name of Socialism that is attached to it, the following is never associated with today’s Progressives:

“The party is all-embracing. It rules our lives in all their breadth and depth . . . There will be no license, no free space, in which the individual belongs to himself. This is Socialism . . . Let them then own land or factories as much as they please. The decisive factor is that the State, through the party, is supreme over them, regardless whether they are owners or workers . . . We want to start by implementing socialism in our nation among our own people! It is not until the individual nations are socialist that they can address themselves to international socialism.”

There will no longer exist any individual arbitrary will, nor realms in which the individual belongs to himself. The time of happiness as a private matter is over.”

This is not Marx or Lenin or Trotsky, but the avid follower of this “revolutionary and evolutionary genius” named Adolf Hitler. It is the very speech of our current Democrat Party. Yet one man’s opinion is only that! Perhaps you will continue to believe in the Progress of Socialism toward the goal of Communism. Hitler certainly did.  He declared:

But National Socialism always bears in mind the interests of the people as a whole and not the interests of one class or another. The National Socialist Revolution has not aimed at turning a privileged class into a class which will have no rights in the future. Its aim has been to grant equal rights to those social strata that hitherto were denied such rights.

The German people were not some sort of savage race before Hitler came to power, but they believed him, and believed in him.

More than enough Germans (and many Poles, Dutch, Austrians, French, etc.) did what they did because they thought it was just and necessary to the great cause of the magnificent new National Socialism that would lead to the beautiful new Communist world.

Our current American Socialists are not eager to directly join paths with Canada, China or Russia. It is their goal to prepare America, and this Progress is only possible one step at a time, beginning with National Socialism.

 

Nothing At All

Because the truth is easy to find, current abuses of power require no mental skill. No form of logic or reason drive today’s coup attempts.  No rational debate will end the matter.

Reason must be subverted. The purpose and conduct of the coup is irrational.  It cannot and will not stand up to American thinking, jurisprudence, or civility.

The wrangling to unseat President Trump begins with appeals to a blind morality that is not moral, and an unfamiliar ethic without ethical basis that was never seen before in America. Facts actually play no role’ whatsoever.  Lies and contrivances have been so blatant from the start that only literal insanity can justify it. The sources of contempt, hatred, and unrelenting abuse require no truth. In fact, the “truth” pounded into the sand of Trump’s impeachment attempt remains a ghost of the recent Democrat past without even a whisper of legitimacy when turned against him.

Much of this factual info is easy to find, already well established and ignored in print. Rehashing each violation will never change the viewpoint of those demanding — or too busy, unwilling, unaware, or incapable of understanding — the coup .

What remains falls into one category: preparing for the next phase of the Revolution of Hatred.  Oddly, impeaching President Trump for no reason serves them better than finding him guilty.

The escalation of violence against all institutions of reason, justice, faith of any stripe, and historical culture are not new. In 50 years we have watched the rejection of traditional family, marriage, church and synagogue, moral education, self-defense, sexual identity, self-control, moral and legal accountability, individuality and personal independence falling to the whims of the “village,” government controls, “safety,” deviance, lust, and sexual confusion, “faultless” and “societal failures,” so-called “social justice” and “team vision,” novel interpretation and re-definition of vital words and concepts.

In short, we have witnessed a complete inversion of morals, ethics, principles, value, law, manners, custom, tradition, logic, reason, duty, responsibility, accountability, and liberty.

We are now witnessing their overt attempt to single out Donald Trump as a figurehead for the former “way.”

Frankly, Trump is not even all that important. He is merely another Czar Nicholas to the Red October Bolshevik Coup, a President Hindenburg in the eyes of Hitler and his National Socialists, or the last insignificant Chinese dynastic family before Mao’s Communist overthrow.

Trump is no god or king, yet if they can unseat him in this coup, you and I are nothing. There are no rules for getting rid of us, yet they must. We will be prisoners of war, canon fodder, “vile dissidents.” Nothing more.

Nothing at all.

Progressive Communism

This short article covers only general principles, but if America ignores these realities, the evils of collective totalitarianism is our future. If any of this is wrong, just comment. Research it yourself, and share what you learn. If you use Google, you might have trouble finding the actual philosophy stuff. It will all be glowing recommendations of how nice it will be once we evolve. After all, Communism has not yet been tried — just poorly attempted — because we have not been ready to evolve.

“Progressive” is coined from the progress from savagery to feudalism to capitalism to socialism to communism. It is 100% communist ideology. Marx and Engels believed and taught this as evolution. The ultimate joy and liberty in the end was to do whatever we want in a society where we necessarily want the same things. Once there, everything selfish will be for the good of all. Selfishness, the highest virtue. We will be happy.

This philosophy of Marx and Engels is based on Georg Hegel’s ideas. Communism shares his religious concepts. Communism is metaphysics, so it replaces God with something better. That is why “God is dead.” God is replaced with perfect society without need of morals or ethics. It is entirely an ideal of a flawless human condition without contradictions, built on the “selfish will to the communist good.” Communism is god. It will tell you what to do and how to think. If you obey and act according to the common will, you will be in Paradise. “Primitive religions” are not only useless, but dangerous obstacles to Communist perfection. It is, of course, “survival of the fittest.” That is why society’s desperate lecherous and stupid will be used to fight against the capitalists. They are expendable.

Communism requires “evolution of mind” to allow the creation of the “new freedom.” The specific order is that savages are free. Savages traded their “freedom” for the “bondage of society and submission to religion and conscience.” Hegel felt it was time to remove those chains by making man submissive to the evolved common will.

Marx and Engels then argued that we would evolve into a common ideology (through practice and reeducation.) That would result in enlightened selfishness, because we all want the same thing. That simply meant creating the same desires in all of us (socialism) until we achieve perfect selfishness (communism.)  Then, one person could ably and effectively dictate the whole world order because we would all be on the same page. When the dictator dictates, we all joyfully cooperate. Think of Star Trek, and the Borg.

The Borg are a fantasy humanoid civilization who desired idealistic perfection. To do this, they started assimilating all species into a self-maintained “brain trust.” All Borg have a common mission and purpose. Individuality is stripped. Each member of Borg society is controlled, of course, by the Collectivist Borg. The Borg Queen was created as a single unifying voice. The Borg reflect the philosophy of Hegel, Marx and Lenin perfectly. Communism, they knew, requires a dictator. (first citizen, core leader, chairman, etc.)

Collectivism includes “Progressive Socialism” (or the Orwellian notion of “Democratic Socialism.” This kind of Democracy replaces “the will of the majority” with “what is best for the evolution of society.”) It also includes variations.

Fascism and Nazi-ism are both powerfully Hegelian Socialist evolutionary designs, but the evolutionary mind says, “There has been no communism, and those were not communist ideals.”

Bear in mind that both Socialism and Communism in numerous forms have been successfully implemented in Russian, China, Cambodia, North Korea, Cuba, and many other European, South American, Asian, and African nations. Virtually all of them require the death or imprisonment of large portions of their own people “for resistance to the Borg,” and violent revolution. Even on paper, you must be happy and content in Communism. There is no room for non-conformity. Pol Pot killed around two million. Hitler killed 11 million, Stalin killed 20 million. Mao killed around 50 million. If you are not evolving, you are a savage, feudal, fundamentalist capitalist. What would you expect?

Communism is not a “welfare state.” It is not a source of free stuff. You will have a job, and you will do it. It will be assigned to you by the Borg, based on the needs of society as seen by the first citizen or Queen. You will get just what the Borg thinks you need. “Free” lunch programs, daycare, healthcare, education, transportation, etc. are expensive. That is why Bernie, Kamala, and Elizabeth simply say, “We’ll tax the rich.” The fact is, the rich cannot afford it. Real communists know that. So do you. Communists will gladly pay for all of society by their selfish hard work. “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need,” deteriorates quickly into “from each in his poverty, to each according to what remains.” You will desire to pay with harder work, which will be required of you. Hegel’s “yoke of necessity” is capitalism. You only think you need it. Of course, you will be happy.

These ideas are not “the evil world of communism according to Dave Delany.” They are accurate communist ideals filtered through reality.

What is an Invasion?

Generally, an “invasion” requires military involvement, but not always.  Invasion does include military objectives or force sufficient to overwhelm a land’s defenses.  King Hassan sent the so-called Green March invasion force of starving refugees to win political victory over the entrenched Spanish troops.  It is not important to debate that 1975 invasion here.  I take no political side in that affair.  It is just a great example of a non-violent invasion, not too different from what we have at our Southern border.

The Moroccan invasion resulted in lots of bloodshed and violence on all sides.  It also seized huge investments by both the Spanish and Angolans. Clever at the time, it resulted in a long, bloody war.  No mistake, it was definitely an invasion like ours at the Southern border.

Webster wrote the first American dictionary to make certain the words of the new Republic were recorded, in part to “record the variance” between American and English, and partly to assure a precise account of “the republican debate for future generations.”  Invasion was far more to our founders than merely military, but also any hostile entry into our lands to usurp the rights or property of our citizens, or to enter illegally with a view to plunder rights or privileges.

This is no longer in our dictionaries, but it remains in the context of our Founder’s intentions, and part of the definition of what President Trump is facing at our Southern border.

It is such a delight to the corrupt leadership of the Democrat Party that they want to stop him at any cost.  If a few million more illegal invaders can slip in, what’s to stop them from re-inventing and redefining America?  Invasion is the correct name for what is happening at our Southern border.  Those who support the invasion in our halls of Congress are just as bad, but there we call it treason.

 

How to Give

I deem it the duty of every man to devote a certain portion of his income for charitable purposes; and that it is his further duty to see it so applied as to do the most good of which it is capable. This I believe to be best insured, by keeping within the circle of his own inquiry and information the subjects of distress to whose relief his contributions shall be applied.” – Thomas Jefferson

Jefferson would never compel charitable giving.  He considered it an individual’s “duty.”  A duty is a moral obligation or responsibility, like voting in a free republic, or protecting one’s family.

The circle of his own inquiry” suggests what we might call “doing our own research.”  Doing good involves doing the most good, in Jefferson’s opinion.  That can mean finding the most pathetic and downtrodden, weakest and most vulnerable, defenseless or nearest death individuals.  Or it may mean a few dollars here there to dozens of struggling businesses.  Or maybe a single donation each year to an impoverished family for a child’s important operation.

“Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.”

In terms of money itself, the only limit on necessity is “more,” so we really can not give too much.  If you think of it in terms of the US Govt, 3,000 billionaires surrendering everything would simply pay a year of status quo taxes. And then the billionaires would all be gone. Paying taxes has nothing to do with charity or good works, but it is another duty . . . within reason.

Two of my primary charities are both orphanages.  One in Kenya, one in Pakistan.  They always need help, and I have watched as they monitor and photograph the lives of the children.  At first it was a kid here and there with a special smile, then the new kids.  The directors with whom the interaction takes place.  The longer I watch, the easier it is to send money through Paypal.  I have no doubt of their good work, the sincerity of their missions in terrible places.

Perhaps most interesting is that both orphanages encourage me to visit.

And I have to admit it is tempting, but if I did visit either of them, it would cost my entire charity budget for more than a year.  And that is how I ultimately know my choices are good ones.

Both directors have repeatedly told me, “The children would be more blessed, excited, and encouraged to meet you than to eat or wear good clothes.”  Let that sink in.

And that means I have to admit I am afraid to go where these incredible people live all day, every day — especially central Pakistan.

George Washington was incredibly generous to individuals, organizations, schools, churches, and missions to poor Americans.  He almost never talked about it, but he did say,  “It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.

There are 26 children in the Kenya orphanage right now.  Every once in a while Director James in the Kenya home writes to me and says, “The kids have nothing to eat today. The pantry is completely empty.”  That sounds like a scam, right?

I no longer believe it a scam, even for a second.  At all.  James told me this morning it costs $32/day to feed the kids if they can buy in bulk for the month, “and that includes the salt, oils and spices. . .”It’s terrible when it gets this bad.  To run out locally and buy a day of food costs $52.

$960 to feed around 26 beautiful kids for a month.  $37 apiece. A buck and a quarter per day.  Add another quarter each day for clothes.

I won’t tell you who they are in this post — in part, for the safety of Munir and the Pakistani children . . . but I would be happy to tell you as part of your personal inquiry!  Do your own research, and I pray you feel really uncomfortable if you do nothing with freedom’s duty.

 

 

 

Reddened Black Face

Several recent political witch hunts worked out poorly, but nobody saw the fallout for Democrats and blackface.  It seems that everyone destined to go into Democrat politics in Virginia has a recorded event of blackface in his past.  Oddly, the blackface seems to be an excuse for worse crimes and hideous morality, but now they started their inquest and must let it run its course.

It appears that the Jimmys, Kimmel and Fallon, Sarah Silverman and other Democrat show hosts also donned the blackface for some reason.  Republicans, too, but their center of guilt seems to be Florida. Blackface is something Democrats have always accused Republicans of, so . . . eh, who cares.

The particular irony comes from blackface being thrown — by Democrats! — at one of their own, precisely because they felt that blackface was a minor charge.

Obviously, Democrats do not care about shoe polish or theatrical makeup.  They calculated that the petty charge would never hold — there would be a long public shriek that would settle quickly enough.  Oops.  It started expanding.

The real horror is that Governor Northam celebrates the murder of children with vigor and enthusiasm.  “Keep it comfortable until you make the decision,” he said. The bill itself included tolerance for killing the child right up to the point of breathing air. “‘My bill would allow that. Yes,’ Tran said, as calmly as any grocery store butcher goes about their business,” and that comes from USA Today, a publication lacking in moral foundations.

Many Democrats are favorable to delivering the head then cutting it off, or laying the child on a table and discussing whether to kill it, but they use “safe” political language to say it.  This thing on the right is a fetus, tissue. Nancy Pelosi commented on President Trump’s objection by saying, “It’s really quite a sad thing when you know that we’ll be talking about something that applies to the health and life — health and ability to have other children of women.”  Who’s health? Whose life are we talking about after the child is born?  It is the mockery of murder, the disease of abortion.  It no longer means anything to kill children right up to the birth canal because it is a political issue, not a moral one.  Not moral right, but “civil rights,” and those only of women, and those only who already hate, fear, or dread motherhood.

So Northam will go down for actually saying it, but through the charge of blackface.  Dreadful, isn’t it?  His “utter moral failure” is for wearing blackface, not for revealing the hidden language of abortion.  The nature of hatred for all Blacks in America has now been leveled against a host of Liberals because nobody wanted to say the truth is really that they just hate children before, during, and soon after birth.

One last comment: if killing babies isn’t hatred and violence, what is?

Readmission of Slavery

“[A]fter the admission of slavery, it was right to say nothing of Christianity . . . It is easy to be inconsistent. Congress made this important declaration, ‘that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, and that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,’ and these truths were held to be self-evident. . . For God’s sake, then, let one more effort be made to prevent so terrible a calamity.” – Timothy Pickering, 1785

Among men, perhaps the spirit of slavery can never be fully washed away.  It never died after the Civil War, nor after Reconstruction, nor into the 20th Century.  We still have slavery today, even in its different form.  Most of us are quite comfortable as sloggers, with the possession of our lives under the exacting care of masters, bosses, and freedmen corporations.

Slavery is comfortable enough.  Although it prevents us from realizing the wealth of our successes, it takes care of us.  We are housed and fed, essentially, and left somewhat free in our off time, as long as it is properly scheduled.  Depending on our owner, and his name, whether Dept of or Corp., on duty or off we have some options remaining, some places to go, and some things to do, even as the list of prohibitions slowly grow.

In fact, we rarely think about it.  Most of have never had property seized or bought land that we cannot use.  We rarely suffer more than being fired or held to a steady wage despite our health or productivity.  We can always change owners.  At least, one or two of them.  If we object to ABC Corp, we simply move to XYZ.  If New York’s agenda disgusts us, we move to New Jersey and its demands.  Easy-peasy, even as they, too, respond and react to the fed.

Jove fixed it certain, that whatever day
Makes man a slave, takes half his worth away.
– Homer, the Odyssey

It even becomes hilarious when we realize that the very 14th Amendment to the Constitution intended to free us from the burdens of slavery is the one that gives our masters their superhuman powers.  Yes, just like “all men are created equal” allowed us to own slaves in 1785, the 14th Amendment makes us slaves in 2019.

So quit complaining, child.

Giants In the Earth

Follow the money.” Corruption in our modern system means, simply enough, that tracing something to the source of dollars, or the source of financial influence, leads you to the legislation or court decision.  If you find the correct route, too often you find the “proper reason” for a shady act or opinion.  “Justice” has nothing to do with such acts.

They need not be inevitable.  The truth is, as a nation, we generally do not pay attention as the power of the Immortals rises and puts us out of business, pushes us away from life, and constrains our freedoms.  The pursuit of happiness becomes more difficult.

The Immortals are citizens who seldom die, speak with a chorus of ten thousand paychecks, and keep growing in power and might by the legislation of Congress and the approving decisions of the Supreme Court.  Giants in the Earth.

They arise from power, of course — yours and mine.  We have little choice. The Supreme Court granted it to them out of thin air.  Magic!  Divine Authority!  The powers of demons rolled up from the shards of the Civil War, dredged from the rivers of taxes, knocked down from the mountains of righteousness.  And we paid for it.

There is a sentence in Genesis that was translated, “There were giants in the earth in those days.”  A careful look tells us the word for Giants is nephalim.  Nephil means the Fallen.  The suffix -im is the Hebrew plural.  Many fallen men of renown, indeed.

Jefferson On the 14th Abusement

Thomas Jefferson had a lot to say about what the courts have done to the 14th Amendment, even though it was not written for a generation after his death.

As mentioned before in this series on the abuse of the 14th Amendment, our nation was not born in a vacuum, and the complete fall of East India Trading Co. was fresh on the minds of our free people.

“I hope we shall crush . . .  in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country.” – Thomas Jefferson, in the early years of the 19th Century.

Asked to speak for the grand 50th Anniversary celebration of the United States, Jefferson (now old and feeble) sent a brief message instead, acknowledging the wonder of 50 years, and July 4th being “the signal of arousing men to burst the chains under which monkish ignorance and superstition had persuaded them to bind themselves, and to assume the blessings and security of self-government. That form which we have substituted, restores the free right to the unbounded exercise of reason and freedom of opinion. All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately, by the grace of God.”

This address to the people, and the warning to corporations, was abandoned by our courts.  Not all at once, of course, but since the huge (and actually nonexistent) loophole of the 14th Amendment, banks and big business are the “more equal” pigs of George Orwell’s book, 1984.

It happens when corporations ride and Congressional bureaucrats sell saddles.  Even then, Jefferson pushed to have corporations die within a reasonable lifetime.  The horror now is an eternal ruling class named Apple, JP Morgan Chase, Berkshire Hathaway, and Microsoft.

The original intent of the 14th Amendment was to resolve the financial debts of the Civil War and give the federal government power in respect to the rights of newly freed slaves.  Original intent, as originally conceived, is the normal and substantial opinion that “we meant what we said and wrote!”

The outrage against judicial corruption of our Constitution was already was clearly felt by Jefferson by 1819, when he wrote, “The Constitution is a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may twist and form into any shape they please.”

We can learn a lot from our Founders’ Wisdom regarding their specific meaning, what they intended for “Constitutional Law,” and the perverse Frankensteinian notion of a “living document.”  Maybe next.  I’m already quite sickened by the contempt of our courts.
