Review of "The Road To Tyranny" "Your definition of Individualism and Collectivism was clear and relevant. I had heard about the slippery slope before, I now understand what it is and that it is real. You made so clear how our freedom and liberty are under attack. The book was easy to read and to understand. I really appreciate that you did not resort to “bumper sticker” attacks but stayed with reason and facts. I have purchased more books to give to people who would never otherwise be aware of what is happening.

Don Jans is a nationally acclaimed SPEAKER and AUTHOR contrasting the policies proclaimed by Karl Marx with the principles upon which our NATION WAS FOUNDED:
BETSEY DEVOS EXPLAINS INDIVIDUALISM WHILE LEFTIST DEFENDS THE FAILURE OF COLLECTIVISM
Comrade Obama determined that discipline in schools must be based on race ratios and not based on the individual or the severity of the infraction. This is how Marxists are taught to view the world. Everything must be based upon the ratios of the makeup of the collective and individuals cannot be rewarded or punished based on their individual behavior. This is in direct contrast to what Martin Luther King, Jr. wanted when he declared that all people should be treated based on the content of their character and not the color of their skin.
The collectivist has been taught that society should be viewed from a class standpoint with the population being viewed as the oppressors and the oppressed, the white and the black, the white and the brown, male and female, Christian and non-Christian, and worker and capitalist. The collectivist has been taught that only what is good for the collective should be considered. The collectivist would say that if a child is disruptive in the classroom, the color of his skin must be considered when determining any action taken.
The collectivist believes that if you are in any way considered a part of any oppressed group, then you are a victim and not responsible for your individual behavior. Oppressed groups cannot be disciplined in a greater ratio when comparing ratio of the oppressed group to which they belong to the total in the group.
Betsey DeVos is doing away with those foolish regulations of the Comrade Obama regime and said that from now on all students should be judged on the content of their character and not the color of their skin; all students will be treated as individuals and not as a member of a specific oppressed group.
Here is the conversation Betsey DeVos had with a collectivist.
Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos told CBS’s “60 Minutes” Sunday Night that the Obama-era school discipline reform policy is now under review.
“We are studying that rule. We need to ensure that all students have an opportunity to learn in a safe and nurturing environment. And all students mean all students,” DeVos told host Lesley Stahl.
Stahl reacted, “Yeah but let’s say there’s a disruption in the classroom and a bunch of white kids are disruptive and they get punished, you know, go see the principal, but the black kids are, you know, they call in the cops. I mean, that’s the issue: who and how the kids who disrupt are being punished.”
DeVos responded, “Arguably, all of these issues or all of this issue comes down to individual kids.”
DeVos replied, “It does come down to individual kids. And–often comes down to–I am committed to making sure that students have the opportunity to learn in an environment that is conducive to their learning.”
Stahl asked, “Do you see this disproportion in discipline for the same infraction as institutional racism?”
“We’re studying it carefully. And are committed to making sure students have the opportunity to learn in safe and nurturing environments,” said DeVos.
WHAT HAS THE NEW SPIRITUAL LEADER OF THE MARXIST/PROGRESSIVES (DEMOCRATS) SAID THAT HAS INSPIRED THEM
Louis Farrakhan has become the new spiritual leader of the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats). Members of the Black Congressional Caucus, the leadership of the Women’s March, and the leadership of the DNC have all embraced and endorsed the philosophy of Farrakhan. Other members of the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) refuse to denounce those who publicly associate with Farrakhan.
Here is what Farrakhan has stated and what the Marxist/Progressives are embracing.
Farrakhan has consistently described the Jewish synagogue as the “Synagogue of Satan” and has claimed that “the Satanic Jews…control everything and mostly everybody.” In 2011, he said: “Some of you think that I’m just somebody who’s got something out for the Jewish people. You’re stupid. Do you think I would waste my time if I did not think it was important for you to know Satan? My job is to pull the cover off of Satan so that he will never deceive you and the people of the world again.”
“The Jews have been so bad at politics they lost half their population in the Holocaust. They thought they could trust in Hitler, and they helped him get the Third Reich on the road,” Farrakhan claimed in 1998.
“White people deserve to die, and they know, so they think it’s us coming to do it,” Farrakhan said in 2015. He has also called white people “white devils,” “potential humans” who “haven’t evolved yet” and “sinful by nature.”
Farrakhan has repeatedly accused the Jews of being behind the September 11 terrorist attacks, which he claims was a false flag attack. In 2015, for example, he claimed that “there were many Israelis and Zionist Jews in key roles in the 9/11 attacks” and claimed that “many Jews received a text message not to come to work on September 11.” Farrakhan claimed in 2016 that “Osama Bin Laden didn’t destroy the Twin Towers. That was a false-flag operation to take the world’s attention away from the great disunity in America after George W. Bush stole the election.”
Opposing interracial marriage has been a consistent position for Farrakhan. “Now God don’t want you intermarrying with [white women],” Farrakhan said in a 2016 speech posted to Facebook. “The fact is that God wanted us to be with ourselves, us with our women. He respected white people who wanted to keep their race white, because we sure want to keep ours from being any further mongrelized.”
Farrakhan spoke positively about comparisons between himself and Adolf Hitler in 1984. “The Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man.” Farrakhan praised Hitler’s leadership against the United States in World War II. He briefly touched on the Holocaust, saying he wasn’t “proud of Hitler’s evil against the Jewish people, but that’s a matter of reckon.” He then praised Hitler’s leadership and compared himself to Hitler.
THE CREED OF ANTIFA, BLM, AND MARXIST/PROGRESSIVES (DEMOCRATS)
If you love freedom, if you love independence, if you love American traditional values and rights such as those in the Bill of Rights and embedded in the traditional family, then you are hereby warned that all of what you believe is under attack. It is your basic beliefs that are protected by the United States Constitution and its principles of rule of law, limited government, divided government, and sovereignty of the people that are the roadblocks to the fundamental transformation of the United States that was promised and greatly enhanced by Comrade Obama.
We see this attack being exercised every day. Freedom of speech is now defined on our college campuses as any speech that is agreed to and condoned by the leftist faculty and students. Freedom of religion is now defined as any religion that does not include any Judeo-Christian principles or beliefs. The right to bear arms is being defined as the right to bear arms unless the left disagrees with it.
The United States Constitution was designed to be the final law and to have the final say in a country that was designed to be ruled by the law and not by man. The leftists have now stated that the United States Constitution is a living document and being a living document, it can mean anything at any time. The leftists have thus said we are no longer a country which adheres to rule of law, but we are now a country of arbitrary law as is every country ruled by a dictator or a country that is becoming a dictatorial state.
The United States Constitution was designed to protect the rights of all people. Later amendments such as the Bill of Rights and the 13th and 14th amendments reinforced this principle. Today the Marxist/Progressive Party (Democrats) are accepting the philosophy of and becoming the party of the purveyor of hate and bigotry, Louis Farrakhan. Many members of the party are personnel acquaintances of Farrakhan and adhere to his rantings of hate and bigotry. The party leadership is included in this number and does not denounce Farrakhan or his devoted followers.
None of this should be a surprise to anybody who understands the collectivist movement and the philosophy under which Antifa, BLM, and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) operate. The dictates of the collectivist movement have clearly stated that there can be no place for freedom of speech, press, assembly, right to bear arms, religious freedom, or right to family values for the foes of collectivism. Every sort of attempt on the part of those who oppose collectivism and practice these freedoms is to be thwarted because it is a counter-revolutionary crime.
We, who are the defenders of our freedoms and traditional family values must understand that the collectivist...(Read More...)
UNDERSTAND THOSE WHO WISH TO DESTROY THE UNITED STATES
“When our founders formed our government, they understood that the government they were forming was the single biggest threat to the freedom they had just won.” Don Jans
We know this to be true because everything the founders wrote into the Constitution and the Bill of Rights was to protect that freedom. The founders understood the natural tendencies of people is to control the lives of others, dictating to them their interests and how they were to run their lives. Patrick Henry explained that the Constitution was an instrument designed for the people to restrain the government, which is always the instrument a free society must constrain.
In the United States we have been on a road, for at least the last 100 years. that would give more and more power to the government. Remember that the government is nothing more than a conglomeration of people who have extraordinary powers and a thirst to exercise those powers. When we the people say the government should do this or do that, such as be responsible for our health care, we are truly enabling a powerholic group of people. This is what the “swamp” means.
Yes, the United States is on “The Road To Tyranny” as the forces of collectivism are advancing while many who claim to favor individualism become “useful idiots” of the collectivist. Even those who proclaim, and support individualism must understand better the tactics of collectivism. Collectivism is anti-capitalism, anti-freedom, and anti-American founding principles. If you are a Freedom Loving American, you must understand these differences.
Never-the-less, as I listen to news and read news I continue to hear and read as news that some collectivist like Obama, Pelosi, Schumer, Warren, or any other Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) and some of the Republican establishment stated a contradictory position from one they had a day ago, a week ago, a year ago, or even longer; as if this is news. If these Freedom Loving Americans understood that those who wish to destroy our freedoms have no morality, no ethics, no integrity, and no position but one, and that is to advance the collectivist movement as Marx and Lenin directed.
Here is what Marx and Lenin said about ethics and morals and what the collectivist practices today. Marx said that law and morality are such... (Read More...)
ARE THE DAYS OF THE EUROPEAN UNION NUMBERED – ITALIAN RESULTS
Those favoring independence and freedom and populist parties rode concerns over EU forced immigration and the lackluster Italian economy to huge gains in Italy’s parliamentary elections, telling the European Union establishment that their Globalist policies and tyrannical methods are not acceptable.
Leading this pro citizen and pro Italian movement was the Five Star Movement who was the biggest single winner with about a third of the vote, though it will not have enough seats to form a government. A separate coalition comprising the non-globalist League and center-right Forza Italia is set to win most seats in the lower house of parliament, with a combined 37 percent of the vote.
In contrast, the current ruling globalist favoring and EU supporting coalition, composed of the Democratic Party and the liberal More Europe, mustered just 23 percent.
“It’s a fantastic victory which fills us with pride,” League leader Matter Salvini said. He added that Italian voters had “made a step forward to be free from the cages and ties that are bringing back hunger and insecurity in Europe.”
This election made one thing clear: Italian voters are increasingly skeptical of EU control over the country’s immigration and economic policies. It also showed that, far from subsiding, anti-globalist populism is gaining strength across the EU zone. Among the surging anti-globalist parties, Five Star has gained the most from Italy’s populist moment. Founded in 2009 as a response to cronyism in Italian politics, it has won support in poorer regions of southern Italy, building on popular anger over institutional corruption, economic hardship and, most importantly, immigration.
Italy is one of the main entry points into Europe for migrants from Africa, the Middle East and Asia. More than 600,000 migrants have traveled from North Africa to Italian coastal cities since 2013, swamping local communities and stoking resentment against the EU’s asylum policies. Both Five Star and the emerging anti-globalist coalition are proposing anti-EU economic policies to go with immigration reforms. They have promised to fight Brussels-mandated austerity policies and... (Read More...)
CONGRESS IS GREATEST PUNTER OF ALL TIME"
The public cannot be too curious concerning the characters of public men." Samuel Adams
Sam Adams was skeptical about the character of public men in 1775 and he would be skeptical today. One thing is certain, the people we have been electing to represent us in congress, be they Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) or members of the Republican establishment are people with no character. The people in this group have one thing in common and that is to not do anything that might cause them to take a stand that could slow the movement toward a Marxist totalitarian state or that might cause them the loss of potential power and financial gain. These Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and Republican establishment members are no different than the Broward County Sherriff and his deputies who hid behind automobiles while unarmed people were being shot.
The plight of so called “dreamers” has been front and center as an issue for months. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have used this issue as a rallying cry. At the center of their rallying cry is that these illegals should be able to eventually vote. Of course, in many cases, namely Pennsylvania, Illinois, and California no restrictions as to whom can vote exists. If you can walk to the polling place or get your name on the mailing list you can vote.
Now we are learning that the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and Republican establishment will punt on DACA and even pull a trick play by using the hidden punt play. Yes, DACA could end up in next month's massive government funding bill, Republican establishment senators predict.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, a leader of the Republican establishment, said that including a short-term deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals in the funding legislation was one of three potential paths — and the most likely one
"That's probably the most likely thing, when we write the funding of the government bill we'll extend DACA legislatively, making it legal for a year or two and kind of punting it," Graham said.
Other options would be, doing nothing, or finding the "sweet spot" that would pair a permanent fix for DACA with border wall funding, he said. We all know that will not happen since these “Broward County like Sheriffs” (members of congress) would have to come out from behind the cars and actually do their jobs.
Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., said Monday she would prefer a permanent fix, but also predicts an agreement will become part of the March funding bill.
"I have a feeling what we may see on this is . . . a DACA fix and some border security, a much smaller package, that will be attached to the March 22 spending bill. If I was guessing what was going to happen, I think that's what may happen."
HOURS OF SENSELESS DEBATE ON GUN CONTROL
Once again, the discussion is about which band-aide should be used to stop the leak in the dam. The fact is none of the band-aides will work. We can use the one with super duper adhesive, we can use the extra large one, or we can use the most absorbent one and nothing will change. The dam that is threatening to collapse must be restored, or it will break.
Pundit, politician, and citizen say the AR-15 cannot be sold, the age to buy guns must be raised, better back ground checks must be used, and on and on they go. Meanwhile, the morality, ethics, and respect within our society continues to deteriorate, and that deterioration goes on not only unheeded, but encouraged.
Karl Marx said that in order to transform a society to a classless society that is totally socially just, totally conforming, and totally equal, the transformers must obliterate all morality, all long-standing principles, and all religion from that society. This obliteration has been active and ongoing within the United States and most all Western Society for at least the last 100 year.
When morality, long standing principles, and religion are obliterated, something must fill the void. What has always filled the void are the forces of evil, those who would long to take what is not theirs, legally or illegally, those who would long to kill, legally or illegally, those who would seek to shirk their responsibility, and those who would seek to claim victim hood as opposed to self-responsibility.
A welfare system, be it called a safety net system or compassion will always breed and cause evil. A welfare system creates a segment of the population that becomes government reliant which brings about a lack of self-respect and destroys the family. A society with a strong family unit will always be a society with far fewer people who deem it necessary to kill others. And yes, welfare is nothing more than a system of legal robbery.
We have a system that says it is not only a choice to kill others for any reason including convenience, but this murder is encouraged by a large segment of the population and in many cases funded by the government. This murder is referred to “as a women’s right to choose,” but is in fact telling our population that human life has no value. This widely accepted and encouraged manner of murder is telling our society that if the life of another is an inconvenience to you, you have every right to have that life extinguished. Abortion is telling society that murder is right, and it is legal.
We have a system that tells parents they do not have to, and in many instances the state prohibits them from disciplining or giving their children correction, especially if that discipline or correction is based on the teachings of the Bible. We have a system that says children cannot be disciplined in school because of bad behavior, rudeness, or class disruption because that could harm the self-image of the child. This system is supported by ...(Read More...)
CHUCK AND I HAD A GREAT DISCUSSION ABOUT INDIVIDUALISM AND COLLECTIVISM YESTERDAY
Veteran award-winning Radio Host and author Chuck Morse broadcasts live Mon - Fri Noon ET on YouTube and Facebook.
Named as one of the “heavy 100” talk show hosts by Talkers Magazine and awarded “Communicator of the Year” by the National Right to Work Committee in 2003, Chuck's column is published weekly by Newsmax.com and his books are available on Amazon.com and elsewhere.
Chuck, who wrote the forward to my book “Goodbye Constitution, Freedom, America” and I discussed my new book, “The Road To Tyranny, Individualism to Collectivism.” Chuck is very knowledgeable about many topics including a unique and deep understanding of Collectivism. Our discussion will give everybody a better idea as to what is happening in the United States today. You can listen to this penetrating and informative discussion here: https://youtu.be/TcgRs0jMKrc
I would recommend that any American who wants to have a better understanding of the current discussion taking place in the Untied States today go to my website and order “The Road To Tyranny, Individualism to Collectivism.”
A reader called me yesterday and thanked me for writing what they called “a great book.” They said they appreciated the straight forward explanation of Individualism and Collectivism without the typical and expected bombastic rhetoric. They also thanked me for relating these concepts to current events, so they had real life meaning. They went on to say they now understood what is meant by the slippery slope so often discussed today without any clear explanation of what the term really meant. They then ordered ten additional books, explaining there were many people they knew they wanted to give a copy and strongly encourage them to read the book.
As I have explained to others, I wrote this book because in Q and A sessions, both on radio and in live settings, it became very clear to me that people did not understand the differences, nor did they relate Individualism and Collectivism to current happenings. The above reader believed they understood these differences but said for the first time they were able to relate these differences to current events. My mission was accomplished with this reader. For the sake of liberty and freedom in the Untied States, I hope you are the next.
MARXIST/PROGRESSIVES (DEMOCRATS) STEP UP FIGHT AGAINST FREEDOM AND LIBERTY
The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) understand the real fight to bring about their desired fundamental transformation of the United States from a free and independent nation to a Marxist totalitarian state that is a classless society that is totally conforming and equal, lies in the courts. The role of the courts today is totally different from what the founders intended. The founders intended that the courts only give rulings. The Constitution does not give the courts the authority to make law.
However, this has become the role of the courts. Yes, the Marshall court, the courts during the FDR reign of terror, and the Warren court determined the role of the court was to make law, engineer social justice, and advance the fundamental transformation so this has become the purpose of the third branch of our government. Consequently, the battle between Senate Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) over the “blue-slip rule” escalated this week, after another one of President Trump’s judicial nominees advanced without the approval of both of their home-state senators
The blue-slip rule — which Democrats describe as a long-running Senate tradition Grassley has taken to ignore — has become a flashpoint for members on the Judiciary Committee. The committee has been tasked with considering the slew of nominees from the Trump administration, many of which have been controversial. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the committee’s top Marxist/Progressive (Democrat), said that Grassley’s decision to hold nomination hearings and approve two nominees who lacked a blue slip from a home-state senator marked a landmark change in committee tradition. Home-state senators have historically been able to block nominees by refusing to return a blue paper of approval to the committee. It’s a courtesy, rather than a formal Senate rule, and whether it’s followed is entirely up to whoever helms the Judiciary Committee — in this case, Grassley.
This is critical because the courts have become the predominant way the Marxist/Progressives are enforcing and advancing their programs. A Marxist/Progressive Judge in Pennsylvania has just taken it upon himself to flaunt the Pennsylvania legislature and redraw the congressional district map that will probably swing four house seats to the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) side. Nothing in the United States Constitution gives any member of the court the right, power, or duty to determine congressional districts. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have never allowed the United States Constitution to prevent them from moving forward their agenda of transforming the United States from a free and independent country into a Marxist totalitarian classes state that is totally conforming and totally equal.

MAJOR CASE FOR THE PROTECTION OF FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE BEFORE SUPREME COURT
A case is to be argued Feb. 26 that could affect the financial viability of unions that are major supporters of Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) candidates and causes. The unions represent more than 5 million government workers in 24 states and the District of Columbia who could be affected by the outcome.
The court is being asked to overturn a 41-year-old ruling that allows states to require government employees who don't want to be union members to pay for activities the union undertakes supposedly on behalf of all workers, not just its members. These so-called fair share fees are purported to cover the costs of collective bargaining and grievance procedures to deal with workplace complaints.
Pro freedom interests are backing an Illinois government employee who says that being forced to pay anything at all violates his First Amendment speech rights.
"I'm not against unions," said the employee, 65-year-old Mark Janus, who is represented by American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 31. "I don't oppose the right of workers to organize. But the right to say no to unions is just as important as the right to say yes." He said he opposes his union's fight for wage and benefit increases when the state is "in pretty terrible financial condition right now."
William Messenger, the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation lawyer who is representing Janus at the Supreme Court, said everything the union does, including its bargaining with the state, is political and employees should not be forced to pay for it.
Will the Supreme Court rule in favor of the First Amendment which says that no law should be made that would abridge freedom of speech, which includes the right to say yes as well as to say no.
The result of this ruling could have a major impact on the power the Marxist supporting unions have amassed in many states including Illinois, California, New York, and New Jersey; yes, the states who are locks for the Marxist/Progressive Party in statewide and national elections. A ruling in favor of the First Amendment will be good for freedom and liberty.
WHEN WILL THE LEFT LEARN, HISTORY SAYS NEVER
Those who hate freedom, those who despise independence, and those who hate the Bible and the Constitution; that would be the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and most of the Republican Establishment, say more and more government (laws) are needed to prevent any future school shootings in particular, and violence in general. Once again, their band-aide solutions will do nothing to solve these problems.
These collectivists, who promote big and powerful government and conformity to their ideas that always promote evil and result in devastation, are taking the easy road and saying if only we had more laws, if only the government had more power, if only the people had less freedom, if only the rights of the individual and their power were reduced and the power of the collective was greatly enhanced, all future violence, including shootings at schools would be eliminated.
Meanwhile these foolish people promote the vary policies and ideas that cause the violence, including school shootings, they claim they wish to stop. These foolish and blind people desire to eliminate God from our society including our schools. When the righteousness of God is eliminated, the void this creates is filled with evil. When the Ten Commandments, the only laws any society needs to live in peace and harmony, are ostracized and demonized, the void is filled with meaningless, complicated, and enslaving man-made law that has never brought about a society that lives in peace and harmony.
These same foolish people promote the murder of the unborn child. In so doing, these foolish people are telling the youth of our nation that life has no value. The very foolish would allow the murder of these children even when the child had survived the murderous act of abortion. Yes, the message is that life has no value so if you kill somebody for your own convenience, our society supports you.
These same foolish people promote the protection of those who would break our laws. In the United States, we have laws against violence and the harming of or destruction of or absconding with others property. Yet, these foolish promoters of collectivism protect those very people who have broken our current laws, just because those people are in our country unlawfully or illegally. The ideas of sanctuary principalities to protect these people who have broken laws, is telling people that adherence to law is conditional.
These same foolish people protect those who flaunt our law because they are of the same political persuasion are once again telling our youth that so long as the ends justify the means, your unlawful actions are justified so long as your ends conform to the collectivist movement. The collectivist supports the unlawful activities of Antifa and Black Lives Matter because their unlawful activities, including the killing of law enforcement personnel, supports the collectivist movement. The foolish collectivist does not understand that the example they are setting transcends politics....
These same foolish people promote the very policies that have destroyed the family unit and promoted hate between classes of people. The so called “compassionate” safety net and welfare systems are the very systems that have brought about the destruction of the family unit and destroyed self-reliance, replacing it with government reliance. Programs like “The War on Poverty” and “quota” systems and requirements, are the same programs that have helped bring about hate between different classes of people. These programs have promoted a society of classes and not a society of individuals...(Read More...)
AND SO, THE AGELESS CONFLICT CONTINUES
The collectivist would have us believe that by rewriting history, by erasing aspects of what is considered disagreeable today, and by denying the ageless conflicts of mankind (not peoplekind Trudeau), their utopia can and will be achieved. Nothing could be further from the truth. History is a record of people interacting. History reflects what works and what does not work to bring about a better world, if that is possible.
Throughout history we have had the broad classification of conflicting ideas on what supports a more harmonious world. These broad classifications are referred to as individualism and collectivism. Proponents of individualism don’t deny the importance of the common good. Individualists simply believe that the common good of society can be advanced only by the “spontaneous order” that occurs when individuals are free to direct their own lives. When individuals pursue their own ambitions, they find that their own interests are best served by collaborating with and creating value for others. Thus, the combined effects of individual pursuits elevate society as a whole towards greater well-being. This is why social, economic, and cultural progress can best be achieved by liberating and empowering individuals to pursue their own visions for their lives
Collectivists, on the other hand, view self-interest as opposed to the common good in an irreconcilable conflict. They believe that individuals cannot be trusted with the responsibility of promoting social or economic well-being. Instead, elite guardians who supposedly possess extraordinary wisdom and intelligence are charged with orchestrating economic and social progress from a position of central authority. All other individuals must conform to group identities so that they can effectively play the part that has been assigned to them.
The history of the United States reflects these same conflicts. It began with the early...(Read More...)
WHY WOULD THIS QUESTION EVEN BE ASKED
64 Americans went to fight with ISIS. What do we do with them now?
WHAT A FOOLISH QUESTION. That a question like this would even be asked shows how the dangers of political correctness have endangered our freedom and our Constitution. We are a nation that is supposed to adhere to “rule of law.” The correct question that should be asked is, “Did these Americans commit treason based on our law." The Law says that “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”
If there is reasonable cause to believe that Treason was committed, then the 64 should be indicted and tried by a jury of their peers. I believe that is the way a country operating under “rule of law” would proceed.
If the jury finds that any or all of the 64 Americans were guilty of Treason, then they should be subject to the applicable penalty which is “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”
The Court would have the legal authority to show leniency for any special situations. That is the way the law works when you adhere to “rule of law.”
Was this question asked about Benedict Arnold? Would this question have been asked of people who would have left the United States to fight with the Germans against the United States in either World War I or World War II?
We were at war with the British and with the Germans. We are at war with ISIS...(Read More...)
IT IS FRUSTRATING BUT FAR TO SERIOUS TO IGNORE OR TO QUIT
Reading and listening to the news is extremely frustrating because what is called news is not about facts or what happened, it is about who can spin better, who can tell the biggest lie, who can make the most clever insult, or who can make the most outrageous claim. Everybody seems to be far more interested in castigating then they are interested in reporting.
Perhaps this is the reason real problems go unresolved. The world is in chaos. The United States has very real problems. I learn far more about the chaos and the problems when I am outside the country than when I am in the country. In the present state within the borders of the United States it is impossible to have conversations without making outrageous accusations with no regard for the truth. Yes, we Freedom Loving Americans would like to say this only happens on MSNBC and CNN. Make no mistake it does. Morning Joe and his girlfriend, along with Chris Mathews seem to lead the pack.
However, let us just get real for a minute. I watched some of Hannity the other night and was quickly reminded why I no longer watch his program. He had some excellent guests who seemed to be interested in having an honest and newsworthy discussion. When they appeared to want to discuss provable facts, Hannity reverted to the Morning Joe and Chris Mathews innuendo and demagoguery.
Meanwhile Europe is being threatened by a radical Islamic takeover. Some Eastern European countries such as Hungary, Poland, The Czech Republic, and ...(Read More...)
THESE CONTRASTS REVEAL WHY THE UNITED STATES FACES A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS
We have seen examples of the differences before and paid no attention. In order for a nation to remain free it is imperative that elected officials first and foremost act as statesmen and not political hacks. George Washington said this was the reason he hoped political parties would never become a major part of the American political system. George Washington’s warnings went unheeded.
Today, we have a major political party who believes in the Marxist concept of “social justice,” total equality, and total conformity. All three of these concepts defy human nature as do so many other of the Marxist beliefs. For instance, Friedrich Engels explained how competition is a negative force and very harmful to society. We have seen the Marxist/Progressive Party (Democrats) try to show the harmful effects of competition by demonizing any who strive to accomplish and achieve.
We also know that the Marxist philosophy teaches that all that is important is if the Marxist philosophy is advanced. The Marxist has always operated by their core belief, “the ends always justify the means.” This was made so clear when we witnessed how the Marxist/Progressives have demonized Supreme Court nominees, especially Justices Bork and Thomas.
The American public has just been made privy to how the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) were in the process of turning the FBI and DOJ into secret police to control the...(Read More...)
THE CRITICAL IMPORTANCE OF HILLARY LOSING
If Hillary had won the election we would have moved much closer to becoming a police state and perhaps would have been one by the end of her first term. A police state is a totalitarian state controlled by a political police force that secretly supervises the citizens' activities. This is clearly what the FBI and the DOJ were becoming. The IRS had been exposed, but there is every reason to believe that the IRS would have again become a tool to be used against what the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) refer to as their enemies.
Based on the little bit of information that has been made public, the Lynch DOJ and Comey FBI believed it was their function to further the agenda of the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and not to obey the Constitution and enforce the laws of the land. We also know, that none of this activity could have taken place without the full cooperation, perhaps even the orchestration of the Obama Regime. When Obama said he would fundamentally transform the Untied States, we knew he meant to transform the United States into a Marxist totalitarian state. That he would politicize the DOJ and the FBI, in hindsight, should be no surprise.

US CONGRESS SHOULD BE LAUGHING STOCK OF THE WORLD IF IT IS NOT
We just came through another government shutdown, simply because congress now believes, apparently, that our Constitution gives them the mandate and the authority to run our nation with continuing resolutions. Anyway, this is how we have operated for the last decade or so. Clearly the Constitution mandates that congress is to pass budgets.
Now we have resorted to continuing resolutions for three-week periods at a time. Schumer, Pelosi, McConnell, and Ryan have proven under their leadership that the United States government would be operated better if the Keystone Cops were in charge. Hopefully the Keystone Cops could fund the government for at least a month at a time. February 8 is doomsday. Another shutdown is looming with all of the posturing and pontificating that goes along with it.
All the posturing and pontificating proves is that the American people have failed. The easy answer to fix our problem, according to many people would be to have term limits. Term limits already exist. The term of a senator is 6 years and the term of a representative is 2 years. To limit the number of terms an individual can serve is not the answer either. We tried it in California, and if anything, our legislature has become even more incompetent.
The only answer is the voter. The voters are uninformed and uninterested. This has become more and more the case as our school system has become an indoctrination system. Our students are taught multi-culturalism, sex education, two mommies and two daddies, social justice, and all else that goes along with the mandated Marxist indoctrination programs, but they are not taught accurate American history. Until that happens, nothing will change.
Freedom Loving Americans, we must begin to change the indoctrination system back to...(Read More...)
MOST IMPORTANT STATEMENT MADE BY PRESIDENT IN SOTU WAS MISSED
The address by the President clearly showed the differences in the United States, not because of what he said but because of the reaction of those who despise the United States Constitution and the principles upon which our nation was built; individualism, rule of law, limited government, divided government, and sovereignty of the people. Yes, the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are vehemently opposed to freedom, independence, opportunity, and self-reliance. The vision the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have for the United States is collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, fascism, and progressivism.) The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) believe in collectivism, arbitrary law, big government, concentrated power, and sovereignty of the government.
When the President said, “My duty, and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber, is to defend Americans — to protect their safety, their families, their communities, and their right to the American Dream,” he stated what has become the great divide. The founders and the United States Constitution agree with the President. The Marxist/Progressives adamantly oppose...(Read More...)
DO NOT REMOVE
Don Jans, the author of "My Grandchildren's America", believes that America is great because of it's promises of individual freedom and opportunity. Like most grandparents, he believes his grandchildren will have the ability and desire to excel, if that opportunity is still available. Will the changes promised and happening now, limit these freedoms and opportunities?
Don has been a student of history for over 40 years. He has concentrated in the study of European history with an emphasis on Russian history. This led him to his study of Karl Marx and Marxism. In addition to being a popular speaker on Marxism, Don has also had articles published on the topic. He also has been a guest on regional and national media broadcasts.
