The House Democrats waste no time in dismantling our Republic

January 4, 2019

The Democrats are wasting no time in dismantling our Republic. This story comes from The Daily Wire.

Yesterday, the first day the in session for the new Congress, Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen introduced a bill to eliminate the electoral college. This is a sad illustration of the mindset of the Democrats. They only care about winning and nothing about representing all Americans. They either don’t understand how a Democratic Republic works or more likely, they do not care.

Representative Cohen (D-TN) who introduced the bill said “Americans expect and deserve the winner of the popular vote to win office”. And my answer is, no we don’t, not if we understand the purpose of the electoral college which is to prevent tyranny of the majority. Prager University explains it so well.

The blue states in the graphic below are those where Hillary Clinton won the most number of individual votes. She won the popular vote by a margin of 2.86 million.

In 2016 because of shear population numbers if we followed the popular vote, California & New York alone would have determined the election outcome. What about the people in all the other 48 states? Their voice doesn’t matter?

The Founders wisely created the Electoral College system so that one or 2 states alone would never be able to elect a president leaving all the rest unrepresented.

We haven’t heard the end of this. The amendment proposal introduced yesterday likely will fail, but the National Popular Vote or the NPV, is a much more dangerous movement gaining steam and does not require a constitutional amendment. It very likely could turn our Representative Republic into a Democracy where majority (as determined only by the number popular votes) rules. That’s the end of this country as we know it.

And BTW in just the first 36 hours of the “Pelosi: House:  Articles of impeachment, a move to abolish the electoral college, comparisons of the president to Hitler, a nonstarter vote on the shutdown, profanity, a proposal for a 70% tax on the “wealthy”.

New mandatory vaccinations soon to be required by the State

December 26, 2018

They’ve been having public hearings recently about the new vaccinations that the Department of Health in the State of Hawaii will be adding in 2020 to the list of those already required.

Immunizations currently required for school attendance:

  • DTaP/DTP/Td (diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis)
  • Polio
  • MMR (measles, mumps, rubella)
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hib (Haemophilus influenzae type b) (for preschool attendance)
  • Varicella (chickenpox)

Here is a very sad story of parents whose triplet babies all became autistic within hours of vaccination. Hat-tip NaturalNews.com.

Those at our local hearings have been overwhelmingly opposed, but are never the less, made to feel like conspiracy theorists. Follow-up letters and articles in the newspaper have likewise attempted to make these people seem like they are crazy and the Dept. of Health is doing us and the whole world a big favor by requiring these shots. Quite disturbing is the fact that no medical doctor in America tells their patients to read the vaccine insert and take note that nearly all immunizations, including flu shots, contain aluminum.

To be added to the required mix:

  • vaccines against Hepatitis A
  • streptococcus
  • rotavirus
  • influenza

The DOE currently allows provisional entry to students without proper immunization records or exemptions, but will require students to complete their immunizations within three months or risk being removed from school.

Short & sweet today

December 21, 2018

Hat-tip American Thinker, more precisely, Howard Sachs from his article, The Anatomy of an American Jewish Deplorable from which most of this blog post was taken, lifted, borrowed. Sachs is a constitutional conservative, non-orthodox Jew who pulled the lever hard and strong for President Trump and can’t understand the vast majority of his non-orthodox Jewish kin behave the way they do.

“Most live in the tragically narrow intellectual bubble of leftist/liberal-progressive-Democrat-L.A.-Upper West Side-Bethesda-MSNBC-NPR-Hollywood-academia”.

The Democratic Party, for all purposes, has abandoned all three of the core values of America:  Liberty, E Pluribus Unum, and In God We Trust. And, in fact, actively works daily to destroy each of these values. When has a vote by Democrats in Congress increased our liberty by even a minuscule amount?

Instead we now have a Leviathan-sized federal government, this unconstitutional fourth branch of government, and in blue states, the iron-fisted rule of the State lording it over every nook and cranny of our lives.

You will bake that cake; hand me loads of your private property in taxes; buy the health care plan I demand; pay for abortions I deem right; burn the fuel I want burned; define marriage as I see proper; go to the government school I want; save for retirement as I allow; drive the car I see fit; hand over the gun I don’t like; build your houses as I deem right; pay your employees how much I order; run your businesses, schools, and universities how I demand; and on and on.” 

Why do Jews, orthodox or otherwise, or anyone for that matter remain Democrats? I still cannot figure it out.

More proof that the left is absolutely NUTZ! (and the left has taken over our schools)

December 16, 2018

First of all, how many 8 year-old little boys know what a “period” is? Damn few I would say. But in the name of equality it is mandated that young lads in the UK will be taught, (i.e., must be taught) that “boys can have periods too”. Hat-tip Breitbart.

There is a group, a committee in the Brighton & HOVE City Council area in the south of England called the NICE Committee (cute huh?). NICE stands for Neighborhoods, Inclusion Communities & Equalities Committee. Not a whole lot of quality education going on I’d say if they have time come up with silly names like this, but what’s worse is their purpose:  “to prevent and reduce stigma related to periods and talking about periods”. Teachers are told to stress to pupils that “trans boys and men and non-binary people may have periods” as well girls & women.

People of sane minds –> if this isn’t a reason to home-school, I don’t know what is! Otherwise you’ll be raising morons. And don’t snicker that this is being carried out in the UK, because I can assure you similar stupid things are being foisted upon unsuspecting public school children right here in the good ole USA. But let’s delve a little further into the madness.

The Brighton & Hove City Council said:  “We believe that it’s important for all genders to be able to learn and talk about menstruation together… Our approach recognizes the fact that some people who have periods are trans or non-binary.” Schools were also told to dismiss objections to ‘trans pupils’ sharing the girls’ changing rooms and safety concerns around male pupils competing in single-sex sports with females, insisting “it is the responsibility of members of staff to support … trans pupils and students and cisgender pupils and for students to feel comfortable around one another.”

This behavior on the part of schools & the NICE committee is chalked up to the Green Party being a strong electoral force in the city and regards the Brighton & Hove City Council something of a trailblazer in introducing “progressive” policies, having started quizzing four-year-old infants about their “gender identity” back in 2016. And you wonder why most people in lower level, minimum wage jobs have difficulty counting your change back to you correctly?

Guesses vary widely as to what the percentage of the population is that identifies as trans (from 0.3 to 0.6%) but I can assure you those numbers are already outdated as a result of asking children to choose their gender identity at 4 years old and schools reporting to child care authorities parents who do not go along with their kids’ gender choice.

Believing that a child’s identity must be honored, and that treatment should start sooner rather than later, is a recipe for disaster. One story as recent as Sept 2018 reports an explosion in kids identifying as transgender, and another asks “Have we gone too far?” I would say yes, and isn’t it about time to go back to the basics in education? You know reading, writing and arithmetic and maybe an occasional “I pledge allegiance to the Flag” thrown in for good measure. Then let the girls play touch football after school with the boys if they want ~if the boys will stand for it!

Why Republicans will never win another election in California

December 12, 2018

The Constitution has only a few requirements for those seeking federal office (citizenship, age, etc.) but per Article l, Section 4 of the Constitution, “The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators & Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof.” This leaves elections up to the individual states to regulate and run.

Too many illegals are easily voting in our elections 

I do not think we should federalize our elections for the same reason I am opposed to the feds getting their hands on anything, namely because whatever the feds touch turns to crap. But if more blue states, that is Democratic run states, follow the prescription California has for running elections we’re done as a free society. As it stands now the laws and election rules enacted by the solidly Democratic California State Assembly pretty much ensure that Republicans will never win another election in California again. And once the formula is out of the bag, the other states will follow suit. You know what they say, “as California goes, so goes the nation”.

   Activists resist allowing states to clean up their voter rolls resulting in many “dead” people voting 

Hat-tip to Mark Levin in his recounting of an Op Ed in the Washington Times by Shawn Steel. For example on election night Orange County (once a solid Republican stronghold) had candidate Young Kim ahead by 14 points but a week later her lead had evaporated and she lost. In fact California lost 7 seats in the House. Voter fraud? Some for sure, but Democrats have figured out it’s easier to erode voter integrity laws than to cheat as much as it would take to sway most elections. Here’s a sampling of how they do it.

  • Non-Citizen Voting – more and more communities are granting illegals the right to vote in local elections (the next step is obvious)
  • Inmate Voting – they conduct aggressive voter registration drives in County jails
  • Felon Voting – by downgrading sentencing in California’s radical criminal justice experiment, felonies turn into misdemeanors allowing what once were felons to vote
  • Motor Voter Fraud –Every person in California that interacts with the Department of Motor Vehicles is automatically registered to vote. This has resulted in tens of thousands of duplicate registrations (and double voting).
  • 16-and-17 Year-Old Voter Pre-Registration -a thinly veiled effort to capture young (already indoctrinated after K-12 schooling in our public schools) voters
  • Absentee Ballots Automatically Mailed to Every Voter – whether or not requested
  • Ballot Harvesting – illegal in most states, but not California where Democratic operatives go door to door collecting absentee ballots to “deliver” for the voter
  • Ballots Accepted Up to Week After Election Day -absentee ballots need only be postmarked by election day but will still be counted up to 3 days later. Likewise ballots sent to the wrong county get another 4 days to be rerouted to the correct district.
  • Second Chance for Rejected Ballots – Democratic operatives call anyone whose ballot was rejected for whatever reason & gives them another chance to cast their vote. They know from previous voter data who are the Democratic voters.

The Democrats scream that every vote should be counted but that’s wrong, only eligible votes should be counted. I’ve said it for years we should go back to a single election day and get rid of all the other opportunities for fraud like early voting, absentee ballots (except for the military), same day registration, etc.

They want to micromanage every last detail of your life

December 9, 2018

The climate change enthusiasts, formerly called global warming proponents (until there were a few too many record cold winters in the East) are now trying to figure out just how many areas of society government should regulate in the name of slowing climate change. Everything is on the table—ranging from building codes, auto fuel efficiency, your diet and family size.

Don’t be fooled by the fact that French President Emmanuel Macron was forced to backtrack recently on proposed gas taxes (that is, carbon taxes). That was just a ‘bump in the road’ so to speak. After protesters lit Paris on fire and raged in the worst anti-government riots in over 60 years, the globalists have a few details to figure out. They’ll try anything and eventually work out what they can get away with and what we will not lay down for. But they will never quit. New Taxes are only the beginning (hat-tip Mises.org).

I might mention at this point that the Paris Climate Agreement that President Trump had the courage to pull the USA out of was a voluntary agreement. In other words there was no enforcement and no consequences if measures were not met. Of course, as the biggest economy and a world leader, the US would have been held to the highest standard and though voluntary, the globalists in our government and our corporations (most of them, honestly) would have forced companies and the military into these ridiculous and costly carbon reduction standards even though China & India’s agreement in the Paris Accord are substantially lower that those required of the US. This even though China is the biggest emitter of greenhouse gases at 25.35% of the total compared to the US’s at 14.4%. The Paris Agreement aside, America has led the way with greenhouse gas reduction without the Agreement. Oh and BTW, China is this very minute building new coal plants like there is no tomorrow.

President Trump famously said when pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement:

“I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris”

Not surprisingly Pittsburgh (run by progressive Democratic mayor, Bill Peduto) countered that “We stand with the world and will follow the agreement.” There ‘s no accounting for stupidity and predictably several blue states (including Hawaii) have chosen to force their states to follow the requirements of the Paris Agreement on their own to the peril of their taxpaying citizens.

This is not your father’s Democratic Party

December 6, 2018

Communists and socialists are now the majority of the new Democratic Party. If you hadn’t already figured this out, we are looking forward to the most radical Democratic Party in history with the incoming freshman congressmen & women. Hat-tip AMAC, the conservative competition to AARP.

“The Congressional Progressive Caucus is by far the largest and most influential coalition in the federal government. It is also the most radical, having extensive ties to several major Marxist organizations.”

There will be an influx of far-left Democrats as a result of the recent midterm elections and they’ve made a deal with the devil. Nancy Pelosi has promised the Progressive Caucus more seats on powerful committees and more influence over legislation in exchange for their supporting her speaker-ship. Many of the newcomers had vowed to get rid of the old guard “establishment” party members and had publicly stated they would not vote for Pelosi for the Speaker position. But Pelosi’s not dumb and in order to keep the very powerful leadership position she’s promised progressive House leaders more power in the next Congress.

Here are some of the members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (past & present):  Keith Ellison (Muslim & domestic abuser), Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Sheila Jackson Lee, Andre Carson (Muslim), Tulsi Gabbard, Hank Johnson (who was worried Guam may capsize!), Ted Lieu, Jerrold Nadler (you’ll hear a lot from him), Elijah Cummings, Ilhan Omar (another Muslim who married her brother to help him immigrate to the US), Rashida Tlaib (another Muslim who celebrated her election wearing a Palestinian flag scarf), and Ayanna Pressley to name a few. There will be 98 of them total. Oh and BTW did I mention they are all Anti-Israel? Oh yes!

Get ready to hear a lot more about catastrophic climate change, Medicare for All, guaranteed minimum income, and any number of other bat-sh*t crazy ideas they have in store for us. About 40 percent of the entire Democratic Caucus is now made of these progressive House members. The upcoming 116th Congress will bring the Progressive Caucus to the peak of its power, simultaneously increasing the influence of its allies in the U.S. communist and socialist movements.
