Back in 1976, the geniuses in Congress put a government funding shut down provision to deal with growing deficit spending during the “energy crisis”. Ever since, this funding provision has been used politically by both parties,
This time, everything in the funding deal is agreed upon by both democrats and republicans, but Chuck Schumer wants to politicize the shut down to anchor a provision for the approximately 4 million illegal alien “dreamers” (800,000 is a farce).
The democrats are good at politicizing this. Most Americans buy the rhetoric and the media does its best to push the message. But what Obama did last time we had a shut down was put political points ahead of the American People.
Another reason the democrats keep losing seats across the country. The American People have become wise to their treachery.
Obama planned for the shut down to be blamed on republicans and had barricades and closure notices for World War 2 and other monuments and National Parks all at the ready and immediately implemented upon the 13 day government shut down. Again and as always, a totally political move bolstered by the media in an attempt to cast blame while shining Obama in a good light.
This time it is the Schumer Shut Down Shit Show!
Regarding the current shut down, the fact is, all of these non-essential agencies have reserves. Reserves they never used so they could get more budget money since these reserves were up to now conveniently not included in their agency’s annual budget proposals. Well, now that’s all changed. The reserves are being used to fund these agencies under the current shut down, so military and other personnel will get paid. I bet you didn’t know that and it won’t be mentioned on CNN tonight either.
I my view, aside from funding Our military and the National Parks, most of the non-essentials of this current government are exactly that, non-essential and should remain shut down permanently.
Call me a radical, but we need to cut the size of the Federal Government at least by half and remove the many bureaucratic redundancies that cost taxpayers billions, if not trillions of dollars each year. It takes six months earnings for Americans to pay their Taxes each year. That is ridiculous!
We simply must return to Our founding principles of limited government.
A quote attributed to George Washington stated:
“Government is not reason, it is not eloquence — it is force. Like fire it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master; never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.”
How this quote has been viewed in recent history books is with skepticism. Rampant and cohesive skepticism. The suggestion is that George Washington never said it, which may or may not be true, but becomes the focus, not the veracity of the message.
What is suggested and virulently focused on, is that since there can be no true evidence that George Washington ever said those famous words, the quote and the message have no credibility.
Of course, it is the message, not the messenger that is critically important to us all, and absolutely true.
Remember that cool “Winds of Change” song by the Scorpions? It became the “end of communism anthem”, played for months after the Berlin wall fell—
It was the end of the Soviet Union and the beginning of the European Union, but it was not the end of communism.
There are indeed still many communist countries in the world, funded by the same shadowy collectivist crony capitalist forces (IMF/World Bank/Federal Reserve/Bank of International Settlements), and there are many SHIT HOLE socialist nations where the state exploits their populations and give their citizens their rights– and take them away.
These people do not have inalienable rights. They cannot speak out against their SHIT HOLE countries, like the commies who rail against America do on our own streets. If they do, they are locked up, or worse. Socialism is TOTALITARIANISM. It is force.
The only difference between communism and socialism is that communism is done by force, socialism is done by vote and BOTH ideologies ultimately create a neo-feudal two class system. Rich and poor. No middle class. Karl Marx sought to destroy the middle class, and apparently as we have seen, so have the democrats and rinos until Trump came to town. Suddenly supporting traditional American values became racist and evil.
When did freedom, loving your country and national heritage become so racist/xenophobic/misogynist/homophobic/ yada, yada, yada?
Know this, there is evil and corruption in both the republican and democrat parties, since both are owned and controlled by the CFR New World Order elite , who are working to destroy this country. That is why the media have been relentless against anything Trump does. Six companies own 90% of all mass media in America.
At least since the battle lines have been drawn, we know who’s who. My political philosophy is very simple: Follow the Constitution. Don’t trust any politician. They are likely bought and paid for by special interest. Don’t be a fan. Don’t treat politicians like celebrities or rock stars. Listen to everything they say, but watch very closely everything they do.
The battle lines have been clearly drawn. Between those who preserve, protect and defend the US Constitution and really love America, Our history and cultural heritage and who sincerely want to defend Our God given rights and save this country from globalist totalitarianism, and those who want to transform it into the New World Order.
Whose side are you on?
Karl Marx noted that socialism eventually leads to communism.
Too many do not understand the difference between God given inalienable rights and the State being God, and how the State exploits its citizenry. Less State, less exploitation. Trump running the government with less staff is being criticized by the left, who have obstructed everything and everyone Trump has nominated, then blame Trump for not filling redundant posts.
The left are addicted to the costly big government nanny state that serves the elite, not the poor and middle class. Haven’t you figured this out yet? More government, less rights, more poverty! I am writing a paper on how communism morphed into ‘social justice” thanks to good PR from the CFR and the Round Table groups.
The fact is, the communists simply became democrats, calling themselves progressives and social justice warriors” which sounds much nicer than communists.
The communists are used, abused and controlled by the same crony capitalist Anglo-American shadow government elitists whose forebears funded the Bolshevik Revolution and continue to fund communism, the rise of Hitler, The Marshall Plan, the United Nations “nation building”, all the many post WWII regime changes and the current “War on Terror” (assisted by the shadow government forces in the CIA) Face it, you can put lipstick on a pig or a communist, but they are both still pigs!
The federal government’s jurisdiction over immigration law has consistently been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, which has overruled attempts by state legislatures to single out immigrants. Sadly, most are unaware of this and quite frankly, many other important realities.
This is of course one of the main reasons the left and the democrats rail against, hate and defile the US Constitution. The most common phrase used by the left, anti-Constitutionalists and democrats alike is to call the Bill of Rights and the Constitution “outdated” and not in step with our modern liberal times.
The truth is, the democrats and the left are outdated. Their time has passed. People are wising up to their clandestine activities and deceptions, like “you can keep your doctor”, “Your health insurance will go down $2500”, once again, and again: Yada, yada, yada.
The fact is, democrats, leftists and communists want to limit the people, not government. They are authoritarians who want everyone to life the way they see fit and who have proven that they want to use the power and force of government to instill their goal of socialism leading to communism while shoving their anti-individual ideology down our collective throats.
Obamacare is a perfect example. A mandate to buy private health insurance or face a huge fine. If that isn’t authoritarianism I do not know what is. This should clearly reveal the collusion between Big Pharma, the insurance companies and the democrats, but still many do not see the connection, frankly because they want to believe the illusion.
Opposition to any and all leftist/communist/democrat goals labels you a xenophobe, racist, misogynist, homophobe and a litany of other identity groups, who are all used as political fodder to gain the public’s support for their perceived transformation of America into a socialist utopia, something that has never, ever happened.
Fortunately, people are waking up to this deception, most notably, the black community, who have toiled on the democrat slave plantation since President Johnson’s Great Society welfare state was created in 1964.
As we learned via the Wiki-leaks of how Hillary and the DNC wanted to keep people dumb and poor, and how history has played out since the creation of the welfare state, a controversial statement Johnson supposedly made after passing welfare legislation has a bit more credence, given a back look on history, does it not?
“We’ll have those niggers voting democrat for 100 years!” LBJ?
Again, whether or not the statement was actually uttered by LBJ is not as important as the solid evidence of the bitter fruits of generational poverty 60 years into the Great Society Welfare State.
You see, white democrat leaders are pious. They are pure as virgin snow and impervious to any racial criticism because they couldn’t possibly be racist. They are to benevolent in the dispensing of their despotism.
Democrat leaders can lie, cheat, steal or say anything without accountability, Although Democrats associate with radicals, terrorists, racist cop killers and KKK leaders they are never labelled as they label others as “racists”, or “xenophobes” when they themselves are racists.
In 1996 Bill Clinton sounded exactly like Donald Trump on the issue of immigration. There was no outcry from democrats then, but when Trump began implementing the SAME PLAN, the left when ape shit.
What absolute hypocrites. This is why I am a Constitutionalist. Folks, the Constitution is the solution. Not special interest political parties pretending to be something they are not.
For example, racism. the current cultural war on white people is completely racist. “White Privilege”, “White hate”, “Self hating whites” (I mean WTF?) “White guilt” are all racist terms. Of course, the real racists, Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA fascists don’t see it that way. They have been thoroughly indoctrinated.
Black Lives Matter is a hate group that only cares about black lives if whites or cops kill them. They ignore black on black crime which is far worse that white on black crime or even cop on black killings.
“Hands up! Don’t shoot! NEVER happened. It is a total lie, fabricated and used as propaganda to breed hatred of police. BLM are a completely subjective group designed to cause division, violence and chaos courtesy of the financial generosity of Rothschild puppet, George Soros to the tune of about $45 million dollars.
Einstein noted that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result. That is the case with socialism. It has never worked. It has never lasted. When first implemented, the money flow from government improves conditions, but the conditions systematically and incrementally worsen as the money runs out, requiring more taxes and more FIAT money printed out of think air causing inflation and dollar devaluation.
These are the facts that are ignored or downplayed by all intstitutions that have implemented by communist John Maynard Keynes “Keynesian” economics at Bretton Woods after World War 2, when the IMF and World Bank were founded.
These are the banking forces behind socialism. Of course they are well aware of the downside of socialism. But the bankers and the elite puppet politicians are the ones who benefit, not the people.
Just take a look at Argentina, Venezuela, Zimbabwe, Guatamala and dozens of other countries facing economic crisis and poverty, who have been bamboozled by the nation killers at the IMF/World Bank..
History proves, individual freedom is the #1 road to prosperity. Socialism on the other hand is collectivist, breeds poverty and requires high taxation and government dependence to make ends meet, all at the expense of the tax paying productive sector.
Distribution of wealth, which gets mostly funneled up to the top of the food chain leaving scraps for the peasants and eliminating the middle class.
This is what we have seen slowly happen to America. However as we have returned to pro-growth, free market individualism and capitalism under Trump as we have seen this past year, there is a different result: PROSPERITY.
So why do Democrats oppose prosperity?
First off, prosperity is a bad word for socialists. If there is prosperity, there is no need for big government programs, a death knell for democrats, crony capitalists and communists alike.
If you are taking home more money, have better paying opportunities, who wants to be on welfare? Things are getting better in America. Even Wal-Mart is raising their minimum wage to $11, without the force of a government mandate.
To think a reduction in regulations and now the new tax plan had nothing to do with this sudden rocket ship growth under Trump after more than a decade of economic stagnation is wishful thinking, but it is also delusional.
Regarding immigration, the fact is, States that do not comply with US immigration law are subject to loss of Federal funding. Their governors can be fined and imprisoned. It is long past time to play hardball and arrest all the governors, state and local officials breaking immigration law.
While open borders is a key issue to the global socialist agenda, by flooding America with unskilled impoverished welfare cases to cripple the US social welfare programs using a tactic known as the Cloward-Piven Strategy to achieve social change through poverty.
There are many, but the main reason the left and the commies hate the US Constitution is because it limits government, not the people And that was very intentional. It is the reason America still exists as the longest continuous government in world history.
That should speak volumes. The Founding Fathers knew all about tyranny from Big government. This is generally glossed over big time in schools, universities and mass media across the world thanks to the CFR/Chatham House elite.
Many thanks must also be given to the Rockefeller’s General Education Board founded in 1903, John Dewey “the socialist father of modern education”, the Carnegie Endowment, the Rockefeller Foundation and the United Nations. Thanks to these powerful and influential institutions, education and mass media have promoted socialism for more than 5 generations as the only way humanity can thrive. (LMFAO)
The elite have all the commies and leftists bamboozled. Lenin called these types, useful idiots. The Red Diaper Baby Boomers are leading the communist charge today in Our institutions and government.
So the smaller the government the better. Keep it shut down!
To understand this migration away from the Constitution and individual liberty, I suggest you read a fantastic 2015 paper by Professor Jonathan Hunt, who works in the belly of the beast at the University of San Francisco, “Communists and the Classroom: Radicals in U.S.Education, 1930-1960” written by Jonathan Hunt
