Perspective 2020 or Dear Mrs. DUMP TRUMP

..
 
 

I live in a progressive sanctuary city, Madison, Wisconsin, a stone’s throw away from Kenosha, Wisconsin , among aggressive Democrats who ensure that not a single Trump-Pence sign dares to be displayed anywhere in the City.

This Blog article is dedicated to all my friends  and neighbors who oppose President Trump in the coming election, particularly the privileged suburban woman in my neighborhood who lives near our polling station, and is displaying an oversized DUMP TRUMP sign on her lawn. 
Below are some things she should consider before dumping President Trump on November 3rd. 

 

Before we embark on all the reasons why Mrs. DUMP TRUMP might not want to vote for the Democrats below, we list here (and also at the end of this article) President Trump’s  accomplishments. for which we should be thankful and for which we should all re-elect President Trump, no matter what our preferred politics may be —  President Trump does great things for ALL Americans, including for those who oppose him.  CLICK:

COMMON LIBERAL MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP

And now down to business, my pitch to my neighbors–

Dear Mrs. DUMP TRUMP:

************

Consensus

In the present explosively divisive 2020 political climate, amidst the global pandemic, political divisions and rioting, one source of universal agreement is that the present situation is disturbing, is significant, and that big national and global changes are impending. Events which at first seem unrelated are coming together now with apparent coordination, to produce uncertainty and chaos, and a possible threat to our previously stable way of life.   

Equilibrium

In order to assess accurately the extent of the impending changes, we have to check first our human inclination to anticipate extremes.  At times we tend to fear catastrophic conspiracies directed by global evil despots, from either side of the political spectrum. At other times, donning rose colored glasses we presume that all of humanity is fundamentally saintly,  is motivated by idealism, and that an appeal to everyone’s good nature will be sufficient to solve the problems of the world and to create paradise on earth. 

Where should we be standing today regarding recent events — are we in the grip of an evil global conspiracy that must be opposed, or will the current situation constitute a relatively small setback in the history of our nation?

Here, too, both sides seem to agree — that the present situation is pretty catastrophic and dangerous. 
However, each side places the source and the blame for our problems in a different place– on each other.  Each side is accusing their opponents of ill will, lies, and of conspiracies of global proportions. 
Which side is in the right, and which side is founding all their claims on lies?

Civility and Restraint

Regardless of today’s circumstances, however extreme, we still have to function with civility and restraint.  Even if our political opponents are truly heinous and evil liars, and even if the destructive actions of their leaders are intentional, we will still all have to coexist somehow, after the present crisis subsides. Winners cannot erase the opposing half of their nation, particularly where Christianity prevails.  Nor can winners realistically expect all opponents to see the light and to join their efforts. 

Fortunately, the roots of our culture, growing out of two thousand years of Christendom, give us some guidance on dealing with even the truly heinous and evil, with civility and restraint.  

Caution and Forgiveness

It is useful to recall the 1994 replacement of South Africa’s apartheid government by that of Nelson Mandela, who had the presence of mind to realize that his nation could not execute the entire previous government. Mandela realized that they needed the expertise of the previous administration, and the cooperation of the whites who had built that society, in order to avoid national collapse.  He issued a pardon, and tried to make a fresh start for his nation, based on forgiveness. When drawing parallels between Mandela’s South African situation and the current U.S. situation, it must be recognized that Mandela’s constituency was 2o times larger than the whites he was deposing.  In the U.S. today, the number of people Democrat extremists are trying to depose is quite different.  A few militants are trying to overthrow the majority.  

Incidentally, it must be pointed out that human nature is never perfect, and the change of administration has not ultimately brought prosperity, peace, or even political justice to South Africa, despite Nelson Mandela’s efforts.  Old politicians were replaced with new politicians, and human nature remained flawed regardless of the color of their political skins.  But at least the changes did not occur via massive bloodshed, and the transition was mostly civilized.  

So, too, today, we need to step back and try to get some perspective on what is going on, and to strive for peaceful change if at all possible. 

Nobody’s a Saint

Even the (deservedly) much admired  Nelson Mandela was not always a “saint,” and started his political career with terrorism and “necklacing” of opponents (execution and torture carried out by forcing a rubber tire filled with gasoline around a victim’s chest and arms, and setting it on fire).

Many heroes of history had a bad start, including St. Paul the Evangelist, St. Mary Magdalene and St. Augustine. 

We are not trying to justify the use of evil to achieve one’s ends —  neither present day rioting and violence, nor Nelson Mandela’s violent start.  The point to be made here is that even good wise leaders and historical figures may have had a flawed past that needs to be forgiven, and that everyone would be “cancelled” if our lives were examined closely enough.  

Everybody Must Forgive

Honesty demands that we admit that all humans and all cultures have sinned, and that we all are works in progress, striving for the goal of perfection. 
Christianity demands forgiveness, seventy times seven times, and an acknowledgement of our own failings.
These principles are not simply optional saintly goals that religious people should aspire to, but are very practical principles that help us avoid a perennial history of revenges and blood feuds, which result in primitive bloody chaos.
 
South Africa moved on after apartheid, Russia moved on after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, and our own nation moved on after the Civil War. 
Everybody must forgive. 

Forgiveness of Sin Versus Proliferation of Error

Our task then becomes the very difficult balance between forgiveness and correction of serious and dangerous ideological error, which is pervading our society today.
To paraphrase Pope Pius X, we cannot accept any liberal ideas which, under the mask of good, pretend to reconcile justice with iniquity.  Sometimes compassion and toleration of extremely dangerous behavior is not virtuous at all.  

This is how we got into the mess we are in today– by spreading various forms of serious moral error, under the guise of compassion and tolerance.

Fundamentals

There are some fundamentals essential to the peaceful coexistence of humans, without which society descends into chaos.
They include truth, justice, compassion and order, among others. 
If this begins to sound like a list of religious virtues, there is a reason for this —  religion, like mathematics and physics, is based on reality and on truth. 
The rules given to us by God via religion are not stupid, they are wise fundamentals.
Violence is not among these fundamentals. 

Violence 

The idea that flawed governments can be overthrown by violating these principles, by violent rebellion involving the destruction of innocents, followed by a sudden return to fairness and morality by the new, previously violent rebellious regime, is naive.  The very people who riot, burn and kill today, will not rule with wisdom tomorrow.  

It did not work in the Bolshevik revolution, the French Revolution, nor in the more complicated and less violent takeovers of government by idealistic groups promising paradise to all. In every case, the new masters showed themselves to be just as bad as the old masters, and human frailty continued to surface as opportunists found their way to the top in new regimes.

In most cases, too, the revolutions were not actually caused by discontent citizens who decided suddenly to turn violent. They were in each case incited surreptitiously by organized groups who were motivated to use a naive population to help unseat the previous regime and to help them gain power.  The naive population which was used did not benefit ultimately in any way.  In fact, they suffered tremendously.  

So when choosing our politics, approval and tolerance of violence is a clear indicator of erroneous philosophy.  

Eliminating Religion

Little known is the fact that the secret society of the Freemasons has claimed credit for inciting the Bolshevik revolution, which they claimed to be their first experiment in eliminating the power of religion over people.  The Bolshevik experiment ushered the concept of communism, a very flawed system of government, into modern life in the 20th century.  The first attempt at outlawing religion (translate replacing voluntary self-restraint by citizens with governmental restraint of citizens by force) led to the birth of communism.

Today, Freemasons are involved in the particularly draconian enforcement of Covid regulations in Victorian, Australia, where a police foundation is selling face masks with the Freemason logo.   

Communism

Communism is based on government controlling people from the top down with regulation and force, with no limits on governmental power. Government is permitted to do anything to achieve it’s lofty goals, including kill it’s citizens without trial, and is accountable to nobody. God is eliminated because totalitarian leaders do not want any restrictions on their power, which God and religion impose.  If there is any doubt of this, ask me about my innocent Lithuanian farmer relatives who spent decades in Siberian concentration camps after Lithuania was taken over by Soviet Russia after World War II, simply because the government wanted to repossess their tiny 1 acre farm or their workplace.

The Opposite of Communism

In contrast, the US system of government was based on people controlling government, restricting the powers of government, and enjoying a great deal of personal liberty.  It assumes a great deal of individual decency and voluntary self-restraint in it’s citizens.  The US government is very limited in it’s powers— limited by the Constitution (which is based on Judeo-Christian principles), limited by the division of powers in government, and limited by the will of it’s people, who vote.  If the people lose their voluntary self-restraint and their individual decency, our democracy will no longer work.  

But we digress.

Let us return to today’s explosive politics, and see why the DNC platform violates the US Constitution, and ushers in communism into our American future. Today’s Democrat policies pose the danger of  spreading various forms of serious moral error, under the guise of compassion and tolerance. 

The DNC Platform

Based on the new DNC platform, The Democrat party is poised to take us in the direction of communism. It contains a large number of edicts issued from the top, which regulate and control more and more the life of every American, precisely what our Constitution was trying to avoid.
  
The Constitution practices subsidiarity, a principle that holds that nothing should be done by a larger and more complex organization which can be done as well by a smaller and simpler organization. In other words, any activity which can be performed by a more decentralized entity should be. This principle is a bulwark of limited government and personal freedom. It conflicts with the passion for centralization and bureaucracy characteristic of the Welfare State.
 
Subsidiarity is the reason our American Revolution was fought, to escape the dictatorial control of King George III, and to return the control of their lives to the people after the government became too despotic.
The most recent DNC platform violates numerous principles of the Constitution and of subsidiarity, placing citizens at the mercy of edicts from government officials to which they never agreed. 
Today’s newest DNC platform seeks to restructure our US government into despotic draconian control of us, its citizens. 

Elements of the DNC & Biden Platform

  • The idea of MASSIVE INCREASES IN TAXATION (promised by Joe Biden upon his election) to fund all the items shown above in the DNC platform, illustrates a very high level of government control over local communities, akin to communism.  The idea that an American citizen is not free to pursue his own charitable priorities, but must sacrifice major portions of his income to fund the priorities of progressive people in Washington D.C. is dictatorship in gross violation of the Constitution of the United States. 
  • The guarantee of FREE ABORTION FOR ALL PROVISION, to be paid for by all Americans, including those who consider abortion to be murder, is a gross and dictatorial violation of  American freedoms. At least half of America is being forced to participate in murder against their wishes.
  • The SPONSORSHIP OF ABORTION BY GOVERNMENT is a dictatorial contradiction of the Bill of Rights — it engages our government in depriving future unborn citizens of Life before they were even born, ensuring that they never experience Liberty or the Pursuit of Happiness.  If the government can sponsor abortion now, what is to stop them from sponsoring euthanasia of senior citizens tomorrow?  Heaven knows the Democrat platform has changed radically in just the last 4 years!  People like MRS. DUMP TRUMP and myself will soon be on the government execution list. As well as anybody who is declared not sufficiently “woke” at any given moment.
  • In addition to extensive taxation and redistribution of American earnings, the DNC platform also describes the intention to CENSOR ALL INFORMATION OUTLETS that are available to American citizens.  See page 48 of the DNC platform.  We have already seen today that the progressive tech giant computer geeks running You Tube, Facebook and Twitter feel qualified to censor the medical opinions of medical doctors who are engaged in fighting the Covid epidemic. Their censorship is practiced strictly along political lines.  This censorship and manipulation of information and of the news is another hallmark of communism, and a violation of American rights.  
  • Although not specifically mentioned in the DNC platform, Joe Biden has made very clear his wish to decree MANDATORY MASK WEARING throughout the United States on his first day in office if elected.  
    Entire nations (such as Sweden), and numerous doctors (many of whom have been censored by our present tech giants and dishonest media outlets) question the severity of the Covid outbreak, and they debate the best means for reducing the catastrophe our nation suffers due to the release of this virus.  There is much evidence indicating that lockdowns and forced usage of masks is not the best way to go.
    Any unilateral decree by a President requiring all Americans to wear masks would be a clear and dangerous violation of not only American Constitutional rights, but also of common sense.  
    The fact that we can smell while wearing a mask hints at the fact that mask pore sizes do not exclude everything.  Mask pore sizes are typically much larger than 300 nanometers, while coronaviruses are about 100 nanometers, so they can clearly pass through the mask (molecules we smell are about 1 nanometer).  A hospital study has shown that homemade masks tested performed poorly, sometimes demonstrating as little as 1% filtration of viruses and bacteria.
    The compulsory use of masks either represents an attempt to pacify an excessively fearful population, or an attempt to instill fear in a population for the sake of political control (see Alinsky Tactics under Clashes Between Liberals and Conservatives ).  A masked and fearful population huddling in their locked down homes is clearly more prone to accepting “rescue” from even a despotic dictatorial government.  One of the oldest con games in human history involves convincing people they are in danger and offering a “cheap” solution.   
  • The  MASSIVE GREEN DEAL PROPOSAL in the DNC platform, is projected to cost $70 trillion, four times larger than our yearly gross national product.  This is a preposterous proposed expenditure, equivalent to a personal decision ourselves to spend 400% more this year on one item than we earn annually.  It would lead to instant and catastrophic debt and destruction of our economy.  This compulsory policy is particularly shocking when there is much very serious national debate among world class intellectuals over whether man-made global warming and “climate change” are a threat to us at all.  

The Democrat party seems to be poised to exchange our democratic form of government for communism, under which government taxes citizens oppressively, promises to redistribute the wealth equitably, and does everything by force.

Historically, every attempt at socialism has ended in inefficiency, degeneration of services, and autocratic control of the population. Taking away a person’s money for redistribution by someone who claims to be wiser is the greatest killer of motivation to work.  And the autocrats who promise to do this never distribute back much of what they collect to the people.  Most of what is collected is kept by the despots, and only insignificant crumbs (like free Obama-phones) are returned to the people.  Again, ask anyone who has had any contact with Venezuela, North Korea, Communist China, or Soviet Russia (me).  
Ask the Man Who Knew Communism Best, Bishop Fulton Sheen — watch him on You Tube.

Advocating Violence

Democrats are also advocating and approving the use of violence as a tool for change.   They are “CANCELING”  opponents instead of winning with debate, and they are advocating the elimination of police, thus eliminating law and order. This is clearly a recipe for disaster for our nation.

The cancellation of all law enforcement, of all leadership that does not subscribe to progressively defined political correctness, of any black voter who dares to think conservatively, and of our nation’s entire history, is a form of very dishonest political violence that is inexcusable. 

And the violence seems to just have begun, as Democrats threaten more and more.  House Democrats just recently blocked the condemnation of Defund the Police.   Kamala Harris, in her first solo speech as Democratic vice presidential nominee, stared down President Trump and said she stood with the protesters after riots in Kenosha, according to CBS News.  Moreover, evidence has recently surfaced for a Soros-backed coalition preparing to create post-election day chaos.   Is this the America we all want to live in? 

A Double Standard

There is also an amazing double standard where accountability is concerned.
Why are Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and every other high level progressive completely exempt both from prosecution and from “CANCELING”  by US citizens for their misdeeds and collusions with foreign governments?

Why is Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, exempt from canceling due to her very bigoted attitudes towards black Americans, of whom she had written  “We don’t want the word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”?

Why is the Democrat Party, historically responsible for supporting slavery in America, exempt from canceling?

Why is Joe Biden, who has been accused of sexual assault, exempt from “Me, Too” accountability, and why has Kamala Harris flip-flopped on her belief of these accusations against Joe Biden?

The REAL Candidate Who Will Actually Be President

The most likely future President & leader of the Democrat party, if Democrats were to win this election, is Kamala Harris.  Harris was the California attorney general who dismissed the case against Planned Parenthood for illegally selling  aborted baby parts and encouraging later and later term abortions in order to generate more lucrative and expensive dead baby parts.

  She then raided the pro-lilfe reporter’s David Daleiden’s  home for exposing Planned Parenthood.  She continued on a legal vendetta to destroy the life of David Daleiden, selectively using California’s video recording laws as a political weapon to silence disfavored speech. David Daleiden became the first journalist ever to be criminally prosecuted under California’s recording law.  Kamala Harris filed 15 felony charges against him, and now, four years later, David Daleiden is still trapped in Kamala Harris’ persecution

This is what Kamala Harris did, as Attorney General, to a young pro-life undercover reporter who unearthed Planned Parenthood’s blood-curdling criminal activities.  She protected the criminals and viciously attacked the whistleblower.  

Kamala Harris is also known to be the most extreme far left Democrat in the Senate.  She executed the most vicious and deceitful attacks both during Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination, and during her own presidential candidacy, when she attacked now presidential candidate Joe Biden viciously and untruthfully.  Kamala Harris is also inconsistent, flip-flopping at any politically favorable wind.  She  strongly supported Christine Blasey Ford’s fallacious accusations against Brett Kavanaugh, but now dismisses allegations of sexual misconduct towards women by Joe Biden. This “Me too” hypocrisy cannot go unmentioned.  

Like some American founding Presidents who owned slaves, whose statues are being  destroyed and whose history is being cancelled today by Democrats,  Kamala Harris also has ancestors who owned slaves in Jamaica.  Why is Kamala Harris immune from cancelling?

Why do Democrats selectively target white people for shaming and cancelling, when slave ownership in the early days of our nation was also practiced by black people and by Native Americans (American Indians), who owned thousands of slaves? 

Finally, if the Democrats win this election, Nancy Pelosi, who was duped by a hair salon, and is now third in line to the nuclear codes, could advance in her position to first place.  

Bottom Line

Unless Americans are willing to completely dismiss any attachment to democratic government and the Constitution if the United States, in favor of dictatorial socialist promises which have never materialized in the history of the world, the Democrat Party must be defeated in this election.

The Use of Fear

The use of FEAR, the present favored tool of the left,  is not a good tactic to see in one’s leadership. When lies are combined with fear mongering, a population has no access to reality, and is at the mercy of those who control the government and the media.

Current Fear Tactics

The present lockdowns, school closures, masked 5 year olds playing in the streets, and violent BLM activists hijacking and using our black population for their own acknowledged Marxist agenda, are all examples of the fear mongering being used by the left.  This is a long-ago acknowledged tactic of the left— the Alinsky tactics studied by Hillary Clinton and taught by Barack Obama, which emphasize “never letting a good crisis go to waste.” 

It works like this — you identify a crisis, exaggerate it, build it up with lies, panic the population, and now the population is ready for any savior, to whom they are happy to surrender their rights in return for protection, presuming good will in their saviors, and assuming that rights will be restored when the crisis passes.  

The rights are never restored, and there is never any shortage of new crises, to keep the population on shaky ground.  If there is a shortage of crises, you simply create a crisis.  Some accuse the global warming proponents of using this tactic to gain global control of governments.  

In recent decades, we have had global cooling crises and  global warming crises, which have nudged many well- intentioned nations to relinquish rights to globalists and to surrender control over their own destiny.
 
Now that we have a President who is returning  control of our nation back into the hands of our own people, and is foiling the plans of the globalists, they are finding new and more panicked crises to amplify artificially, to instill fear in the population and try to grasp control.  

These include the Covid pandemic, and the artificially created BLM unrest, which occurs, incidentally, only in Democratically controlled cities where Democrat Mayors tell police to stand down and where Democrat city councils defund and shackle the police.

Aside on the COVID Pandemic and on Global Warming and Climate Change 

More and more globally reputable scientists and statisticians are discrediting man-made global warming and climate change claims, and are discrediting the lockdown handling and exaggeration of the present Covid pandemic. 

Examples of seriously data-driven and intellectual man-made global warming skeptics include Tony Heller, and my husband, Rolf Reitz, who, as Editor of the International Journal of Engine Research co-authored an editorial with 37 globally renowned scientists explaining why the present drive to eliminate gasoline engines from your planet is exaggerated.  Rolf also gave a Princeton University and Georgia Tech-sponsored webinar in which he detailed the scientific arguments supporting skepticism of the man-made global warming alarmism that is rampant today, and is in danger of damaging the indigent populations of the world more than any of us.

There is no shortage of globally reputable scientists who assure us that there is no climate emergency. 
Recently, 500 such scientists , spearheaded by the Amsterdam-based Climate Intelligence Foundation (CLINTEL) issued the European Climate Declaration, describing the leading climate models as “unfit,” and warning that  “current climate policies pointlessly and grievously undermine the economic system, putting lives at risk in countries denied access to affordable, reliable electrical energy.”

Criticisim of the lockdown and mask handling of the recent COVID pandemic is also surfacing in the scientific world, now that we have seen some data on the pandemic. 
Ivor Cummins (a top health officer and technical leader from Dublin, Ireland) presents the most convincing data and conclusions in a very public-friendly 40 minute seminar which everybody should view before forming any opinions on the further handling of the COVID situation.  It’s called Our Viral Issue-Crucial Update

Basically, Cummins gives incontrovertible  evidence for the uselessness of both masks and of lockdowns in dealing with the COVID situation.  He exposes the erroneous modeling that predicted a pandemic of catastrophic proportions which never materialized.  (Incidentally, the Global Warming alarmism was also generated by erroneous modeling predictions which never materialized, and which today’s climate data are not supporting in the least.)

In the best case scenario, the scientists who try to model and predict nature, either weather or pandemics, with equations and computers are simply incompetent and unable to acknowledge the unreliability of their pathetic predictions.  In the worst case scenario, they are corrupt scientists who intentionally model and predict fallacious “chicken little” “the sky is falling” scenarios, to help their favored unprincipled political faction gain power by promising to rescue the panicked population from impending disaster.
  
In the case of global warming, the tragically exaggerated and inaccurate modeling was done and was promulgated by Al Gore and his political globalist friends.  In the case of COVID modeling, the modeling was done by people associated with Bill Gates and Dr. Anthony Fauci, who are both financially invested in producing COVID vaccines for global use.    

Conclusion

The extent to which we have all been hoodwinked by a colluding media, a rapidly shifting Democrat Party, and the deep pockets of  billionaire far left activists is only beginning to be apparent.

More and more globally reputable scientists  are exposing the lies that are being taught in our schools and in politically correct indoctrination programs which are all designed to instill fear and shame in our population and to discredit our aystem of government. 

So What Do We Do?

Clearly, whether you lean liberal or conservative, and whether you like President Donald Trump’s politics and policies or not, if you want democracy in the future of our nation, you must vote for President Trump on November 3rd.

Once democracy is preserved on November 3rd, you can advocate and work for any change you like in future elections, under the umbrella  And protection of the U.S.  Constitution.

The only other alternative for us today is the Democrat party platform. This would establish dictatorial rule, draconian control of citizens, lockdowns, California-like power shortages, elimination of most rights now guaranteed by the Constitution,  the alteration of the Constitution by appointed Supreme Court Justices, instead of the preservation of the Constitution by them, and, in short, a government resembling that of Communist China, the Old USSR, North Korea, Cuba and Venezuela.  Venezuela is the most recent example of socialist destruction of a previously prosperous nation, where promises were made, and promises were not kept.

Not all Americans realize the power and brilliance of the US Constitution, which was designed to shackle the power of government leaders, and to introduce controls that would  limit potential despots.  The writers of the Constitution studied millennia of human history, and chose the best attributes from different forms of government.  They inserted the very Christian values of protecting the rights of the meek and of the poor from the powerful who may want to use and to control them.

Elect, and Super-Elect President Trump

Not only do we have to elect, but we have to super-elect President Trump in the coming election. Due to the acknowledged and enthusiastic use of a Alinsky tactics by the Democrat party, the election of President Trump will have to compensate for all the unprincipled devious tactics the left is planning to use.

The left has recruited most of the media to participate in the lies smearing President Trump, to the point where an assimilation of all the networks and reporters using identical phrases maligning President Trump on a given day has become obvious and even comical.

They are all clearly receiving identical instructions from a central source on a daily basis.  Whether that source is Barack Obama, the head of the “Resistance” in his alternate White House in Washington, or George Soros, or the secret Freemasons who have had a documented agenda since 1850 to destroy the power of religion over nations, and who have claimed credit for steering the Bolshevik Revolution, or whether that centralized source of evil is some other power-monger leftist like the tech giants of Google, Facebook and Twitter, the existence of that centralized command post is now blatantly obvious.
And the lies and manipulations of the left are not limited to the media— they are also now  engaged in escalating amounts of election fraud.

Since we on  the right practice  the voluntary self-restraint if Judeo- Christian Culture, and limit ourselves to what is lawful and constitutional, we must super-elect an over- elect this President.  We must get to the polls even if it means crawling over broken glass, we must advocate and work for this election, we must donate money, more that ever before, and most important of all, we must enlist the most powerful vote in the universe, we must enlist the support of God in this election, through the biggest avalanche of prayer that humanity has ever accomplished.  The Christian roots of our nation are in the balance.

Do the common man and his self evident  God given Rights win, or does totalitarian rule by  Marxists, accountable neither to God, nor to the citizenry, win?

For Everybody

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION (more than 50) MAJOR ACCOMPISHMENTS + 2 Nobel Prize Nominations  

For Catholics 

For those who have signed on to Catholicism as the best available guardian of God’s revelations to humanity over millennia, and the best source of guidance in matters of morality (as I have), there is an overriding moral reason to vote for President Trump. 

President Trump is the most pro-life President we have ever had, and Catholics  know that whether or not we kill our babies is the most pre-eminent moral issue in the 2020 Election. 
The US Bishops have reiterated this fact recently, providing guidance for Catholics.  

‘Abortion is an intrinsic evil, meaning that it is never permitted or morally justified, regardless of individual circumstances or intentions’ 

 A serious Catholic (or any other serious Christian, for that matter) cannot vote for a party that condones abortion, advocates the killing of a baby who survives abortion, advocates the killing of a baby right until the moment of birth, uses public funds to promote abortion at home and abroad, and helps organizations like Planned Parenthood, which engage in the grisly selling of aborted baby parts, as Kamala Harris has done. 

One Catholic priest, Fr. James Altman, has gone as far as to say that no Catholic can vote Democrat in this election.  “You cannot be Catholic & a Democrat. Period.”  Some US Catholic Bishops support him.  Others condemn the “tone” of his message. Evangelical Christians will probably love him, and they have already joined President Trump for his positions on abortion and on the Supreme Court.  

Another Catholic priest has condemned the masking and shutdown tactics pushed by Joe Biden as diabolically inspired and unnatural.  Father Robert Altier, a well known homilist, author, member of the board of Catholic Parents Online, and host of the DVD series Beauty, Truth, Goodness: The fundamentals of Catholicism, the parish priest of St. Raphael’s in Crystal, Minnesota says:

There’s nothing normal about it. It is not normal for human beings to be six feet apart from one another. It’s not normal for human beings to be covering their face when they try and talk to somebody.
It is not normal for us to be locking ourselves in the house for months at a time. It is not normal for us to be acting the way that we are because of what’s going on.
It has nothing to do with God, and it has nothing to do with humanity. Well, that doesn’t leave a whole lot of options then, does it? Where do we think it’s really coming from?
It is evil. Let’s be clear what it is. It is evil.

There is no question in this Catholic’s mind that abortion is the biggest overriding moral evil of the past century and that all decent people are obliged to take no part in it whatsoever, either personally, or as a nation.  In fact, we are obliged to warn our fellow citizens, whom we are obliged to love, against participating in this evil, too.  
I would go beyond just eliminating the use of Federal funds for any abortion-related purpose– I would include unborn babies in with the rest of us, who are guaranteed the right to LIFE.  

VOTE FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP on November 3rd!

 

 

 

 

Division in Our Nation

When faced with the division so apparent in our nation between the left and the right, it is important to define the conflict in order to seek a remedy.  
Is the conflict between Democrats and Republicans, between liberals and conservatives, between left and right a result of a difference of opinion that can be sorted out or solved by debate and by compromise?
Or is the conflict so fundamental and central that we have reached the point of war, for which very different tactics must be used?  And, if so, who initiated the war, and is peace even possible?

Conservatives Trying to Understand

When faced with someone’s actions that mystify you, the best policy is to assume the best about them (practice forbearance), to try to put yourself into the other’s shoes (show empathy), and to search for rational explanations and good motivations that might possibly lead a person to do what you find so perplexing.
These are the fundamentals of decent Judeo-Christian behavior which I was taught by my parents and by the Sisters of Saint Joseph (who educated me in New York City at St. Benny’s Catholic School in Richmond Hill) during my elementary years.

This is generally the best way to approach life, and it’s what those of us who try not to be curmudgeons strive for most of the time. 

Even when people do that which for us conservatives is unthinkable, like killing their own babies in the womb, we try to drum up explanations explaining their choices and softening their intent.  They could not afford a baby.  They felt social stigma.  They assumed the child would have a miserable life. They wanted to avoid inconvenience and had no idea how serious their choice actually was. They fell for secular propaganda without thinking.

  

This works for explaining the motivations of many nice people who are liberals, particularly those who have not devoted much thought to the issues at hand, and who themselves innocently try to fit in with the new and sometimes shocking “social values” that are presented to them (and most recently demanded of them) by our “culture.”
 
That “culture” is now predominantly defined and then controlled by the left. 
With the help of the now primarily leftist media,  the left projects the “everybody thinks this way” image very successfully, whether that is accurate or not.  Their message actually goes beyond “everybody thinks this way,”  and is rather more like “you are scum (racist, …etc.ist) if you don’t think our way.” So, wanting to fit in and not make waves, nice liberal people buckle easily under pressure from the extreme left, and become increasingly more liberal, not realizing the trouble for which they are headed.   

No Longer Liberal

In this way, the previously nice liberals in our midst have slowly been replaced by a very forceful element of the radical far left, to whom the word “liberal” no longer applies. 
They are no longer “liberal” or “easy” or “permissive” about anything. They are now quite angry, dictatorial, and inflexible, and, despite their free use of the word “tolerance,” are not very tolerant about anything with which they themselves disagree.  In fact, they even no longer refer to themselves as “liberals,” but now prefer the word “progressives.”  They try to dictate to all of us where our culture and our values must “progress,” they intolerantly label us with hateful names when we don’t comply, and they use increasingly violent and even illegal tactics on anyone who dares to disobey their agenda or to resist. Examples of the weapons used are:

This consummation by hatred that we see in the modern left comes at a very heavy price.  It damages not only the progressive haters and their victims (the Trump supporters), but the entire nation.   
The term Trump derangement syndrome has even been coined —
Trump derangement syndrome (TDS) is a term for irrational criticism and negative reactions to President Donald Trump that have little regard towards Trump’s actual positions or actions taken, or even whether these positions or actions are clearly in the best interests of the country, and were positions held by Democrats recently.

 

Enough is Enough

When it comes to the leaders who are steering the new very radical and apparently very hateful left, our Christian attempts at understanding and overcoming disagreement, by practicing good will and forbearance, now fall short.

When faced with Antifa-like attacks, no amount of good will or forbearance will help.
You don’t approach Antifa-(oops, Attila)-the-Hun with good will and forbearance.
Efforts at logic, reason and debate simply enrage the radicals further.   

Their radical demands keep shifting to the extreme, demanding more and more”rights” which now routinely trample the real rights of the majority.  For instance:

  • Democrats now demand the “right” to kill an unwanted baby after “accidental” birth.
  • Democrats demand that America’s borders be simply removed, and that anyone from anywhere who walks into our country must be openly accepted and given all “rights” that previously had to be earned through comprehensive citizenship scrutiny and eligibility.
  • Regarding support for declining moral standards, Democrats demand the “right” of AIDS patients to engage in promiscuous behavior without warning the other party, thus infecting others. (Half a million young men died unnecessarily during the AIDs crisis because facts about the transmission of AIDs were concealed.)
  • And Democrats demand the “right” to change modesty standards in restrooms for the entire nation. 
  • In attempts to garner control of the country, Democrats even advocate eradication of the Constitution’s Electoral College in favor of a popular vote, thus disenfranchising rural America.  Rural America is then expected to feed and support left-wing urban America, while the urban left gets to control government and law and free-load off rural areas. 
  • And the list goes on…..

When a squeaky wheel begins to demand too much, and tramples the rights of others with their excessive demands, the time comes for reasonable people to declare that “enough is enough.”
The left now demands such a fundamental compromise of core values that no reasonable Christian could or should agree to compromise any longer.  

Even the Left Jumps Ship

The left has become too radical even for the left.
 
David Horowitz is one example of a devoted left wing activist of the 1960’s, who realized by the 1980’s that the left had migrated too far in its “ends justify the means” philosophy– in his case, going too far meant the murder of Horowitz’s friend by left wing activists.   
David Horowitz then abandoned the left, and for the next 30 years applied his intellect and talent  to opposing the left. 
David Horowitz has now been a leading conservative thinker and writer for several decades, until his death in early 2019.   

According to David Horowitz, progressive leaders of the left have declared war on America and its constitutional system, and are even willing to collaborate with America’s enemies abroad, and with criminals at home, to bring America down. He does not portray them as people who can be reasoned with, or people who are capable of compromise.  He does not even believe that they want the best for our nation — something that I had assumed all along.  In my naïveté, I have always assumed that the left wants the best for our country, but disagrees with me on the best route by which to achieve it.
 
Horowitz’s contention that the radical left hates America and the principles upon which it was built, and wants to destroy all that our nation stands for, is a game changing concept.  We can no longer hope to reason with and “convert” the left; instead we must expect escalating attacks and learn how to protect ourselves from them.       

Surely, This is Paranoia?

I would never have believed until very recently that leaders of the left (Pelosi, Biden, Hillary, Barack…) had direct intentions to damage America, as Horowitz suggests.

 
But extreme events have come to light during the past three years.  It has been reported that certain members of the leadership in the previously trusted and respected FBI, DOJ, CIA, FISA court and DNC, have colluded with Fusion GPS, Yahoo news and other main stream media, to produce false accusations against President Trump, in an effort to depose him, effectively initiating a coup.  The extent and lawlessness of this apparent subversive “deep state,” coordinating secret lies and violating laws to reverse an American election, have convinced me that there is, indeed, a conspiracy on the part of the left in our country. 

That conspiracy sought to unseat President Trump unjustly.  It is now widely known that:

  • Numerous leftist government officials prioritized unseating a sitting President over the welfare of the nation. 
  • In setting up their open “resistance movement,” numerous Democrat leaders refuse to support projects under President Trump which they previously supported under President Obama (such as building of a wall, or restrictions on immigration).  
  • Democrats oppose work needed for the safety of the American people by our law enforcement officers just to “resist” President Trump.
  • Many left-leaning politicians, also supported by the hostile press, place priority on damaging the President over protecting our citizenry and over maintaining our nation’s credibility abroad.  

For 3 years now, the Democrats have behaved like a child who rips the head off the favorite doll of a sibling rather than see that sibling enjoy (and possibly share) the precious doll.
  
The spitefulness of the left has now risen to the level that they side with Iran and with sadistic mastermind Qassem Soleimani, rather than acknowledge the accomplishments of President Trump in stemming terror directed at the US.
 
And their spitefulness has most recently risen to the level that they tried to convict the President of false manufactured accusations and “Impeachment” without allowing him due process or defense.  

Vast Left Wing Conspiracy?

So yes, now it seems we have to to acknowledge the existence of a vast left wing conspiracy aimed at bringing down America and the (Christian-based) constitutional government that supports our success.
David Horowitz, who suggests this, is probably right, and his view and his warnings should not be dismissed.  
He knows our opponents, he used to be one of them. 

When Hillary Clinton was accusing us of a “vast right wing conspiracy” over 20 years ago in 1998, we thought she was crazy.  But knowing what we know now, her accusations were probably based on a projection of her own plans, an assumption that we on the right are doing what the she and the left were already engaged in back then — their own “vast left wing conspiracy.”  

Accusations Backfire

Now, after the left has repeatedly attacked President Trump with falsehoods which actually turn out to be reflections of their own behavior, we are beginning to learn:

  • President Trump was accused in the Mueller investigation of colluding with Russia, but in actual fact it was found that it was the FBI and Hillary Clinton who were colluding with Russia, trying to obtain false dossiers with which to undermine President Trump’s election.
  •  President Trump was accused of bribing the Ukraine in a phone call with “quid pro quo” demands, when actually it was Vice President Biden who was bribing the Ukraine with a  billion dollar “quid pro quo.”
  •  President Trump was subjected to over 3 years of investigation trying to unearth election manipulation by President Trump, followed by a failed impeachment effort to prevent his reelection in 2020.  In actual fact, the impeachment plan, which started on the day of the President’s inauguration, and involved a fruitless 3 year search for a crime, was the ultimate election manipulation effort by the left, attempting to overturn the 2016 election and to damage the President’s chances in the 2020 election.  100% of the election manipulation was on the Democrat side, not on President Trump’s.

The Mueller investigation backfired,  accusations of “quid pro quo” backfired, and the impeachment attempt backfired. 

How Much Damage Has Been Done?

Now, following impeachment, a Rasmussen poll finds that 55% of voters say impeachment made President Trump stronger politically, while only 16% say that it weakened him.   

So, the efforts of the left to unseat our President have not only backfired, but have actually strengthened President Trump.
Americans seem to be well aware of the war that is being waged against them and their values.   
What does not kill you makes you stronger.  

What Have We Learned?

So now we have learned:  if the Left accuses the Right of some shocking behavior, that behavior will actually be found on the Left, and not on the Right. 
 
Why should that be surprising?
The left has been using Alinsky tactics now for decades— tactics described in a book by Saul Alinsky, a book dedicated to Lucifer, the Father of Lies. 

So we have learned that the Left lies, attacks, and distracts.  But most importantly, the Left HATES, and the Left is out to destroy – destroy conservatives, destroy the constitution, and destroy religion, on which all of this is based.
 
The Left does not plan to play by the rules, to use the legal tools our Constitution has made available to us.
Yet Conservatives are expected to stick to the rules to preserve all we believe in. 
For millenia, such battles against evil have been faced by good men who rolled up their sleeves, risked their necks, prayed to God, and took great courageous risks to protect all they believe in.  They even left their homelands, and founded new lands, including America, to escape injustice.
These men were tough, they were courageous, and they were unafraid to call out and face the enemy. 
Enter Donald Trump. 

Enter Donald Trump

***

Donald Trump has identified our problems, called out our enemies foreign and domestic, does not shrink from confrontation, and can play global poker brutally and successfully.  
He manages to remain devoted to America, the constitution, our history, our flag, our Christian roots, and our babies.  
He has taken on the Alinsky left, the European Union, China, ISIS, false attacks and counterfeit impeachments without flinching, all the while fixing our economy, returning jobs to America, repairing our government through the appointment of just judges, defending our unborn future citizens, and inspiring everyday Americans to join him in the hard work of restoring the America most of us believe in — a united America where all groups are included, and no group is played politically or excluded from the prosperity.  

Toxic Masculinity

What is the Trump Haters’ biggest complaint against President Trump?

The gripes vary around various aspects of the President’s behavior– his twitter lashings in response to attacks, his outside-the-box responses to attacks on his policy, his humor which takes the form of theatrical grandstanding, and some decade old locker room talk he was caught using.  Oh, yes, and he does not hold back when his attacker is a minority, like a woman.  This President can be very equal opportunity with dishing back to those who attack him.  

In short, the aggressiveness and unpredictability of President Trump’s (primarily Twitter) behavior offends the left, and even offends some in his own party.  The New  York Times calls this “toxic masculinity,” which they define as including bullying, catcalling, suppressing emotions and masking distress, maintaining an appearance of hardness, and “tough-guy” behavior.
 
According to the New York Times, “Toxic masculinity is what can come of teaching boys that they can’t express emotion openly; that they have to be “tough all the time”; that anything other than that makes them “feminine” or weak.”
The left actually has psychologists working with boys and men who “have been socialized to conform to traditional masculinity ideology.”

 When a President faces serious global and domestic opponents, then aggressiveness, cunning strategy, brutal honesty, willingness to take intelligently calculated risks, and in general, many qualities defined by the New York Times and by the left as “toxic masculinity,” not only become useful, but become essential. 

Aside: There is actually nothing toxic about masculinity. Masculinity offends only the radical left, who wants everyone to become weak, malleable, and subservient to them.  Thus they define masculine virtues such as strength, courage, honor, honesty and any form of resistance to the leftist agenda, as toxic.

 

Is This a Debate or Are We at War?
And What Are the Stakes? 

Once we realize that we are engaging in a war with the left, not a debate, it becomes clear that all the qualities President Trump is displaying are most useful and essential.

In war, you cannot broadcast your plans openly to everyone, you must be aware of potential spies, you must use red herrings and diversionary tactics,  smoke screening, infiltration, information warfare, and covert operations. 
These are masculine military tactics, and President Trump attended a military academy, where he excelled. 
Incidentally, the left has been using these tactics clandestinely for years, way before President Trump’s election and the left’s official declaration of “Resistance.”

It’s time we face reality and stand behind this President.
 
And the stakes?
Unborn children and our nations’ future. 

What President Trump Does

President Trump identifies threats, prioritizes wisely, tackles problems simultaneously on many fronts, rallies the troops, creates diversions and never foolishly shows his cards to the enemy. 
President Trump is a warrior and Commander in Chief on a par with any of our greatest Presidents and generals of the past. 
We should make no mistake about the seriousness of the threats our nation is facing today, whether they are internal or global. 

And do not be distracted by his Twitter rants.  Through them he broadcasts the truth, which the media will not do, and he throws many red herrings to the enemy.  He always has a plan!

President Trump has the courage to face enemies like China, Russia, North Vietnam, ISIS, and our domestic radical left, while still having the heart to defend unborn babies, worry about prisoners who were unjustly sentenced, and work hard for the welfare of everyday Americans.

And President Trump has the moral fortitude and intelligence to negotiate all this within the confines of the law, unlike his enemies, who do not limit themselves to lawful combat, but who flagrantly trample the laws of decency.
 
Following more than three years of investigation by his unprincipled opponents in the “swamp,” President Trump still remains guiltless and righteous.      

    

Back to David Horowitz

David Horowitz was a prolific author, and has much to teach us about the left. 
His latest book, published just after his death, Dark Agenda- The War to Destroy Christian America, outlines many of the tactics and goals adopted by the left. 

Horowitz claims that Radical infiltrators have been quietly transforming America’s societal, cultural, and political institutions for more than a generation. Now, backed by Billionaire George Soros, they are ready to make their move. These “progressive” extremists have gained control over a once-respectable but now desperate and dangerous political party. From their perches in the Democratic hierarchy, they seek to undermine the war on terror, destabilize the nation, and effect radical “regime change” in America, all in an attempt to usurp power for themselves.

Horowitz claims that progressives are “self-appointed social redeemers,” whose every tactic, particularly their “community organizing,” is designed to gain power.  Their weapons include provoking the public to anger, which generates publicity, and makes people more prone to tolerate the adoption of totalitarian tactics by government under the guise of protecting the public. Progressives claim to be dissatisfied with the status quo, but offer no concrete suggestions on how to effect change and improvement in our society.   

Horowitz claims that numerous groups and programs have been hijacked by the left as ways of recruiting bodies for their revolution.  If you can claim to offer any discontented group promises or sympathy, you will have their votes.  If citizens are not discontent, progressives invent ways to convince them to be discontented. Once they have their votes, progressives forget about these poor slobs, they only needed them to acquire power, so now they don’t have to deliver.  

The Progressive Umbrella of Discontent

.A partial list of activities and issues that now fall under the progressive umbrella of discontent, and are used and controlled by progressives to get votes, but are never solved or overcome, include: 
(Organizations taken from David Horowitz’s very comprehensive Freedom Center Discover the (Leftist) Networks Website): 

 

According to one Students for Democratic Society (SDS) radical, for progressives, “the issue is never the issue.  The issue is always the revolution.”  No solutions are ever offered.
Many of the issues, like Global Warming aka Climate Change, are manufactured (another blog article coming soon), and probably do not even exist.

Many of these issues are items all decent people are concerned with, like environmentalism, immigration and social justice.  Progressives do not acknowledge that conservatives, including President Trump, have always worked on and care about justice and decency, have accomplished more in these areas than has the left, and should not be villainized by the progressives.   
 

Light at the End of the Tunnel

Now that we have had 3 years of a President who pushes back on the progressive agenda of the left, and who has actually made some progress on some of these issues without divisive tactics, we can appreciate better how groups of Americans had been splintered and pitted against each other in the past, paralyzing our nation and impeding accomplishment, progress, and prosperity.  

If David Horowitz is correct, and we are indeed in a war with the Left, we must realize this now.  We urgently need to abandon our “Marquis of Queensbury” rules, join in the battle, and become great supporters of President Trump’s fight against the warriors on the Left.  No room for criticism, even for the President’s tweets, which represent his brilliant circumvention of the media that has been corrupted by the left, and which show his transparency and accountability to the people who elected him. 

The Left is Particularly Vulnerable Right Now

One of the unintended consequences of the progressive strategy of collecting the votes of numerous malcontent groups and sowing division, is that one of those malcontent groups just might gain enough momentum to hijack the Democrat Party which pretended to care about them. 

At this very moment, Democrats are panicking about just such a crisis takeover by the angry old socialist Bernie Sanders.  Bernie’s grumbling agenda is gaining momentum with its promises of handouts which only someone who is mathematics-impaired could possibly believe, and the Democrat Party is in danger of being taken over by this socialist.   His supporters include many of our young people who have recently graduated from the politically altered, arithmetic-sparse and history-sparse curriculum imposed by the left in our schools.

Desperate Democrat attempts to regain control of their own party include not only misappropriating their limited energies into continuous yet unproductive attacks on President Trump, which leave their own list of accomplishments anemic, but now also include an attempt to purchase leadership of the party by Michael Bloomberg, the very type of aging white billionaire male, and previous Republican to boot, that Democrats have publicly consumed themselves with hatred for in the past. 

Needless to say, the left is in very poor condition at the moment to pose any threat to the focused, organized, and accomplished administration that President Trump heads.    

.
What Are Our Options?

This is not the first time our nation has suffered internal conflict and division, and it will not be the last.  
We are not limited to the unattractive option of digging in and  “fighting it out to the death” with our brother and sister progressives;  we can use our brains and our brotherly love to find alternate solutions. 

As with any human dispute, sometimes a good “deal” or compromise can be found. 

First of all, we need to ascertain just how many of our citizens are on board with the radical agenda– is it truly half, as the press would have us think, or has the left conned us all into thinking that more Americans are behind them than actually are?
  
The coming 2020 election should help us to find out.  We need every single vote, so let’s make sure we don’t slack!
  
As we come to realize (and defuse) some of the radical left tactics used in the past, such as voter fraud and media manipulation, a better assessment can be made of where Americans actually stand with reduced Alinsky rigging of elections. 

The Best Solution

Then, one general solution to issues on which we Americans have sharp division, is deregulation and decentralization of control over issues on which Americans disagree.  The concept of Federalism, on which our nation was founded, allows the combining of a central “federal” government with regional state and city governments in a single political system.  Most major areas of disagreement can be delegated to the States for more local resolution.  This can ease many of the national tensions that arise when the people of one region disagree strongly with those of another.

Just as family disputes can be eased by allowing family members more freedom and space in their own rooms, so also national disputes can be eased by getting rid of those regulations that Americans disagree on (see the list above, in the areas of Affirmative Action, Animal Rights, Anti-Americanism, Climate Change, Communism, Globalization…….) and allowing States to pass whatever regulations their majorities wish to pass on these contentious issues.  Fundamentally, we all back off of imposing our will on the fellow citizens who disagree with us. Then those who are discontent can find a State to live in that suits their desired lifestyle better.  

Guess What?

The previous section on What Are Our Options?, which concluded that deregulation and decentralization can provide some solutions, is precisely what President Trump has already been doing. 
President Trump is WAY ahead of the game.
And as he lifts regulations that have been crippling our economy, lifts health care requirements for the Little Sisters of the Poor so they do not have to pay for contraception, and reclaims our ability to say “Merry Christmas,” our nation is beginning to prosper.  

Why We Need President Trump

President Trump is a far sighted leader who has been able to identify many of our enemies and problems, and has energetically pursued finding solutions against great odds. He has a wonderful ability to discern what Americans want and need, as opposed to what career politicians want and need.  
Almost miraculously (assisted by the prayer of millions of Americans), President Trump has managed to rise above the assaults he has suffered, and continues to look for win-win solutions for all Americans.
President Trump is the “deal-maker” of the century, and he will be able to continue finding us win-win deals that solve our nation’s problems with fairness and justice. 
As a previously reluctant Trumper, I am now completely on board with our President, and so should you be.
