IT’S ALL ABOUT VOTES DUMMY

The Democrats, Progressives, or Socialists, whatever you call them, don’t care about legal or illegal immigrants. They do care about becoming the dominant party in America. These modern day Socialists have clearly chosen an ambitious, but possible strategy to out voting the Conservatives and Republicans. It is called open immigration, primarily from non European or non English speaking nations.  Based on their success with capturing the Black vote in America in past elections, the progressives have decided to encourage immigrants from Hispanic and Arab countries.

They are using ‘chain’ immigration, a lottery based immigration selection process, a liberal visa granting process with weak enforcement of visa holders overstaying the time limits of their visas, open borders, inadequate border control forces and cumbersome legal requirements for returning illegal aliens apprehended at our borders. Resistance to a border wall is part of this Progressive plan.

And then there is the hysterical Progressive resistance to ‘Voter I.D ‘ and the refusal to take the possibility of fraudulent voting seriously. In any locality where the Progressives hold political power, they make it easy for illegal aliens to vote, often thru the driver’s license process. This is all part of the same Progressive plan to reduce the power of their opposition, primarily the Republican Party and it is working. If you see the Second or First Amendment weakened or repealed and a broad attack on the Electoral College gain credibility, you will soon see the individual freedoms you now enjoy be diminished. It may then be too late for you to protest. By following your generous nature toward others, you have destroyed the American Experiment of individual freedom given to us by the sweat and blood of past Americans who left us this gift to protect and cherish.

WAKE UP- WE ARE IN A POWER STRUGGLE

Second amendment repeal, end Electoral College, citizenship question on census form, no voter I.D., open borders, unlimited immigration, baseless charges of Republican collusion with Russians during the election, corruption in the FBI and Department of Justice, politicization of the civil service, globalization of the economy, failure to adequately fund the military, appalling failure of the FBI and local law enforcement to protect our schools and the main stream media to factually expose corruption and abuse of power wherever it is found.

The leftist, socialist, democrats, big government ideologues  and liberals are on one side. The rest of us are on the other and we are not as skilled as our opponents. Our opponents keep us off guard by constantly shifting areas of their attacks. The truth is that none of these issues is critical to our opposition. Saul Alinsky, the guru of Obama and Clinton, is right. The issue doesn’t matter. The issues are all part of the struggle for power. The left will used any or all of these issues to destroy their opposition, which is us.

While we are trying to fix, solve or improve all the issues that affect our lives, the opponents are focused on seizing power. History paints a clear picture. Once the left wins, it must use coercive measures to control society. There is no way bloodless way back. If you don’t want to look back a hundred years or more, just look at Cuba or Venezuela or California. Wake up this is serious and time is running out. Do not let the leftist elites follow their ideology and destroy the country for the rest of us.

The Professor: Realities and Challenges in the Trump era

A fictional discourse between a learned political science professor and his students.

In little over a month, I’ll be seeing some of you in my honors seminar. For those of you who have other plans and commitments, I’ll continue to send you my thoughts and analysis of current events.

I believe this next class maybe the most important one I’ve ever taught. There is too much at stake for any American who loves this country to sit on the sidelines. The realities are fundamentally frightening. We have just come thru an extraordinary period of destructive national government policies. I’m not being a pessimist when I say, we cannot survive as free democratic nation unless we can recover from the results of the last ten or so years.

First the realities as I see them. The nation is deeply divided between the people who want the welfare promises of socialism and those who believe there is no individual freedom and prosperity under any form of socialism. In a cradle to grave government, there are very few individual choices. An absence of individual choice defines the absence of freedom. President Obama knowingly presided over a transformation process that would ultimately lead to a socialist government. A process that Hillary Clinton would have continued. Remember they both made no secret of the allegiance they paid to Mr. Saul Alinsky.

It was Mr. Alinsky, a brilliant revolutionary writer, who provided the intellectual under pinning to the Progressive movement, including the name. Mr. Alinsky stressed to his followers that the terms socialism and communism would not attract wide support in America and to use the term progressive instead. He also used the terms ‘leading from behind’ and ‘the issue is never the issue.’ I will cover the political takeover of the center/left Democratic Party by the Progressives. Today the Democratic Party of the American political scene is only a misleading name for the Progressives.

The Progressives do not accept that Donald J. Trump won the national election and is now their president. They are doing, and will do anything to bring down his Presidency before it can establish itself and bring America back. They are supported and, even led, by the national media, our higher educational institutions, and the entertainment world. The deluge of misinformation and lies from our once renown media outlets, is having an effect. Without the Presidents tweets, there would be no other broadly disseminated information source. I believe that is true but am still amazed by the weirdness of that statement.

Even though President Trump won the election and selected his cabinet and other government employees, his own Department of Justice, is at best, not engaged and at worst, actually hostile. How else can you explain the existence of a Special Consul when no crime has been identified and it is staffed and run by those openly opposed to the Trump Administration? How could this happen when the Attorney-General and his deputy were appointed by the President?

In my seminar, we will examine the past policies of President Obama and apply the America First principle to both domestic and international actions. Advanced warning, don’t sign up if you base your arguments on emotional beliefs. Just the facts, please.

The Professor: Special Counsel is a Danger

The following is a fictional account of the written and oral communications between a political science professor and the students of an honors seminar in an East Coast liberal arts college.

Before you know it, we’ll be back in class for the Fall Semester. My summer course in Presidential Politics is going well. At least that is what my keepers say.  It keeps me active and thinking how to engage your generation which I have trouble defining. When I’m feeling uncharitable, I want to define you as the ‘over educated cupcake generation.’ Perhaps very unfair but what challenge or hardship has defined you?

Maybe it will be the raging political war between the pragmatic conservatives and the socialists who are still seeking to transform America via the redistribution of wealth and a centralized government, run by a progressive elite. Class warfare by another name. The battle is real. The Democratic party, now run by very left-wing progressives, is seeking to destroy the Trump Administration and establish a system of one-party rule.

Having lost an election, the Progressives are now seeking to use tactics of full-scale resistance. Perhaps the most dangerous tactic is the use of a special counsel to investigate the imagined crime of collusion between the Trump Administration and the Russians.

First to set the battlefield. After seven months of investigations, Congressional and FBI investigations have not found any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign or Administration and the Russians. So, we have now appointed a Special Counsel to investigate a crime no one can find. The progressives know that doesn’t matter. With enough resources and time, the Special Counsel will find some obscure matter unrelated to collusion with the Russians and try to use it to destroy the Trump Administration. Strong statement. Yes. Let’s drill down a little further.

Former FBI Director, James Comey, is not a role model for the storied FBI. He couldn’t stand up to pressure from Loretta Lynch regarding the so-called FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. Looking for real crimes. That’s is where to look. Back to the story. Comey leaks documents covering his meetings with President Trump to a friend who then makes the government documents available to the New York Times. He does this illegal act so that a special counsel will be appointed and that is exactly what happened.

Now the plot thickens. Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General, appoints Robert Mueller, a former Director of the FBI and a long-time friend and colleague of James Comey as the Special Counsel. Their close relationship over several years should have disqualified Mr. Mueller from the Special Counsel position. The law is clear and explicit on this point.

Mr. Mueller immediately hires several lawyers with close ties to the Clintons and their foundation and according to press reports is widening his search for a crime. The history of the special or independent counsel shows you can find or manufacture some questionable actions on anybody if you look long enough with the broad powers granted to the special counsel.

The intent of this political tactic by the progressives is to destroy the Trump Presidency and to proceed with their transformation of America. How can you have a civil discourse with political opposition whose main mission is to destroy the Republican opposition by any means possible?

The only effective response is to attack by exposing Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein’s unlawful appointment of Mr. Mueller. Continue by firing both Mr. Rosenstein and Mr. Mueller and follow-up by appointing another Special Counsel to investigate the Clintons, Loretta Lynch and the IRS. Let’s see what happens then. Maybe the Republican Congressional leadership will show some backbone.

The Professor: Divided America

The following is a fictional account of the dialogue between a political science professor and the students of an honors seminar in an East Coast liberal arts college.

 

The class had just started when Alison raised her hand. The Professor nodded, and she asked, “Everyone talks about a bi-partisan process in Congress to pass needed legislation. I don’t see how that is possible. It seems to me that the bi-partisan approach to legislation is a thing of the past and is just not possible today. Am I right?”

“When the country is divided, so will the Congress. The wider the divide between our two parties, the more difficult it is to put together a bipartisan vote in the House or Senate to pass any kind of legislation. In the past, while both parties worked to elect a strong majority in both houses, it has only been in the last decade that one party is dedicated to achieving a long-term one-party rule. This has been true since the Progressives have dominated leadership positions in the Democratic Party. Your best source for this recent political direction is the writings of Saul Alinsky, a brilliant revolutionary writer who was once a ‘political organizer’ in Chicago. Alinsky has made a profound effect on the liberal left-wing of the American political scene.

“You can sum up his teaching by saying that as long as your intention is to seize power for the Progressive Party (his term for socialism and communism), the end justifies the means and you are free to choose whichever side of any issue that will help you destroy the political opposition. Both President Obama and Hillary Clinton chose the Alinsky doctrine to push for a one party ruling government in America. They came very close to success. The danger is still there. Approximately half the voters in America have accepted the socialist message. Remember, in most cases people have voted themselves into a socialist government. Voting yourself out of socialism is a very difficult problem. Venezuela today is a perfect example.

“When the democratic/progressive party is devoted to destroying all political opposition, bi-partisan legislation is a hard challenge. If a champion arises from the very diminished number of moderates in the old Democratic Party who could champion America issues of well-being, social mobility, economic prosperity and national security,  then maybe the numbers of socialist followers in America could be diminished and there could be a return to bipartisan government. There is not much time left as the Progressives today control the national media and nearly all our universities.

“Alison, does that answer your question?”

“Yes, but how can we who do not believe in socialism and its ‘leading from behind doctrine prevent a Progressive takeover?”

“Don’t stand on the sidelines and whine. Become real players. Get in the political fray at all levels. Speak out. Americans are a remarkable people and given a choice will pick the right course.  But only if that choice is laid out and explained, Otherwise, the Progressive/Socialists will play their seductive song over and over until it becomes a reality. At that point, returning to a free society with individual choices and freedoms will require more than words. It will require a people’s revolution in the streets of America.”

The Professor: Democratic Party and Class Warfare

The following is a fictional account of the dialogue between a political science professor and the students of an honors seminar in an east coast liberal arts college.

*******

The Professor liked to keep his class on their toes and ready to respond to any political issue. He stopped his pacing around the room and said, “I’m going to leave you for ten minutes. When I come back, I want one of you to present a Class question. Since it is a Class project you will all receive the same grade for the selection and presentation of the question.  I expect a question that will be relevant to our political environment and yet will be a ground-breaking issue for the next decade.”

Several hands shot up as the Professor smiled and left the room. He thought he would like to watch the dynamics of the Class as they worked on selecting a question but he knew if he stayed in the class, the actions around the conference table would adjust to his presence. A big part of his curriculum was to expose students to the give and take of peer groups in the decision-making process.

Returning to the room, The Professor paused outside the class room and listened at the door for a few seconds. He was surprised at the silence. They must have come to some agreement. Walking in and taking his seat at the table, he asked, “Okay. Who is the lucky presenter?”

Edward said, “I am.”

“May I assume that the question is yours?”

“It is one I’ve thought about for some time. But it really is a class question. Should I begin?”

“Yes.”

“The Republican Party has a fairly coherent message that resonated with Americans in the last election. Today the Democrats do not have a positive message, other than opposing President Trump on every issue. Yet the Democratic messaging routinely out performs that of the Republicans. Opinion leaders in the media, entertainment and education organizations seem to be taken with the Democratic Party’s message. Why is that?”

“That is a very good question and one that will be with us for at least the next decade. The question on the first level is easy to answer but difficult to explain in believable detail.

“The Democratic Party has been moving toward European style socialism for the last hundred years and probably longer. Their success is in their messaging. Their failure is in their inability to apply the socialist message to governing. But we are discussing the messaging today. The message when stripped to basics is one of class warfare. The promise is for a redistribution of wealth.

“Material wealth always seems to end up in the hands of a minority, leaving the majority to struggle for what’s left. The message of Democrats/Progressives to the majority who are not wealthy is to set them against the minority who they believe have more than they should have. The message of the Progressives is not to create more wealth or to improve social and economic mobility. Instead it is ‘you must take wealth from the minority who hold it by very high taxation rates, economic regulations, death taxes and heavy taxes on businesses. This Progressive message is very adaptable to slogans. Remember President Obama’s class warfare sound bites: level the playing field; give everyone a fair shake; the rich need to pay their fair share; transform America by redistributing wealth among individuals and nations; and protect the middle class.

“Don’t think the progressive message of the Democratic Party is too simple to be effective. It is not. When hope is vague and distant, the class warfare message is very effective and will thrive in a failing economy.”

The Professor and Saving the Democrats

 

“Are you all ready for the summer break? Next year you will all be sophomores. I am very pleased with this class. Because of you, I have agreed to teach this honors class for two more years. If you can put up with me, we will have more time together. Starting with Paul, please go around the table and tell us very concisely what you plan to do for the summer and what are you planning to do after graduation.”

In less than ten minutes everyone had responded to the Professor’s request. The Professor leaned back in his chair and said, “All your responses are worth more comments but with the time available, I’m going to focus on Carlos’s statement. Carlos, you said you wanted to work within the Democratic Party organization after graduation. Why did you pick that as a career choice?”

“My family and all our friends have always been Democrats. No one in the family can even remember anyone in the joint family who joined the Republican Party. When we needed something, or had a complaint, we always took it to our Democratic party contact. I grew up in a small town in Western Pennsylvania. My grandparents on both sides worked in the mills or mines. They were all union members. They would tell us stories of how tough life had been when the Republican Party was dominant and cautioned us to never let them takeover political power again.”

The Professor said, “Yes. I’m old enough to know how things were then. The base of both political parties often goes back for several generations. This last election I think is the beginning of new political alliances. The Republicans running on a populist and nationalist platform made serious inroads into working class communities. The political map today is very different.”

“Professor,” Carlos asked, “Will you give me some advice in getting started?”

“I assume you goal is to bring the Democratic Party back to its traditional place of power with working class citizens. To begin you must understand what caused this sudden and dramatic change. The Democratic Party of your parents and grandparents was the voice of the working people. It was a center and slightly left of center party. With exception of the intellectuals in the party, the rank and file were definitely not socialists and were not apologists for American power and uniqueness. Under Barack Obama and the Progressives, the Democratic Party swung rapidly to become the very left-wing of the American political world.

“During his eight years in power, the Progressives took over the party with a strong socialist and internationalist ideology. The welfare of the working-class families was ignored in favor of destroying the opposition political party and America’s economic and military power. The Progressives knowingly turned away from American working and middle-class traditions and heritage in favor of socialist principles.

“They did this very abruptly and successfully. Their globalization priorities overrode America first responsibilities. Jobs, decent pay with good working conditions and benefits were no longer the top priority. Control of the media and education using class warfare rhetoric to replace the traditional working class goals of improving the status of the family via education and hard work. Every parent wanted life to be better for their children than it was for them. If you look at the leaders of the Democratic Party today, it will show a clear dramatic move to the left. One of the heroes of the party today is a declared Socialist who is not even registered as a Democrat. It will be a long way back and that journey is not for the faint hearted.

“Carlos, my advice is to begin working this summer as a low-level party volunteer in a role that gives you daily contact with people and party officials. Watch, learn and do not offer much advice to your superiors. Keep good notes, make numerous contacts, pick a catchy subject and use your writing and analytic skills to get published. Once you have established your credibility you can move up the party ladder at the next opportunity. Take advantage of every speaking opportunity. Get comfortable with yourself. You have chosen a hard and nearly thankless path. But it needs done. I don’t think you or anyone will be able to bring the Democratic Party back to the point your parents will recognize it, but you may be part of the task of saving what can be saved to form the foundation of a new party.”
