Good luck with that Demonrats.  MAGA!

You lost in 2016 because you and Obama went to the left in policies.  Now, try Bernie Sanders and let us see what will happen.

Democrats are running Socialist training camps for prospective candidates


pic435.jpg
A sad sack and an Indian enter a bar . . .

S. Noble (IndependentSentinel) is reporting that Democrats are running Socialist training camps for prospective candidates. It is the only way Democrats can win in 2018 according to Progressives. They must have "an uncompromising progressive message," one of the trainer's insisted.

Democrats are moving further left, towards Bernie.

On day one, the progressive messaging expert said his goal is to make the opposition as angry as possible (classic Alinsky).

"I believe that I want to piss off the opposition as much as possible. I want them to be so angry they repeat my message over and over.," the "expert" said.

About 300 candidates from 40 states were attending the camp and have pledged to advance progressive -- i. e. Socialist -- policies.

The success of their campaign is modeled on Bernie Sanders campaign.

Socialist Elizabeth Warren spoke to the eager candidates about the leftist issues near and dear to her heart -- debt-free college, Medicare-for-all, corporate accountability and more. Warren said as she urged candidates to run for office"

"The world has changed. Why did it change? It changed because of us. I don't mean at Capitol Hill, I mean on the ground."

She's right! The U.S. is now deeply in debt, college is not affordable, healthcare is not affordable, our borders are open, MS-13 has a great hunting ground, our economy is in the doldrums, the income gap has widened, our foreign policy is a disaster, and Saul Alinsky is our new god -- along with George Soros.

We too can be Venezuela.

Globalism -- persuading the individual to stop being an individual

pic192.jpg

Linda Goudsmit (IndependentSentinel) says if society understood the reality of collectivism instead of the promise of collectivism then their support for collectivism would vanish. The elite globalist leaders selling collectivism know this to be true and so they have had to rebrand collectivism as Globalism.

Songs are written about globalism -- John Lennon's classic song "Imagine" is the globalist anthem. The successful marketing of collectivism requires the names to change from already rejected Communism and faltering Socialism (think Venezuela) to the promise of a New World Order renamed GLOBALISM that disingenuously pledges social justice and income equality.

Globalism is the new word for the old lie about collectivism -- that surrendering individual rights and national sovereignty will deliver social justice and income equality.

Philosopher Ayn Rand understood the sinister nature of collectivism and and wrote extensively about socialism/communism and how it persuades the individual to stop being an individual:

"Socialism is the doctrine that man has no right to exist for his own sake, that his life and his work do not belong to him, but belong to society, that the only justification of his existence is his service to society, and that society may dispose of him in any way it pleases for the sake of whatever it deems to be its own tribal, collective good."

The Islamization of Europe and the West demonstrates how mass social indoctrination toward collectivism leads to cultural suicide and the death of the individual.

Ayn Rand writes:

"When you consider socialism, do not fool yourself about its nature. Remember that there is no such dichotomy as "human rights" versus "property rights." No human rights can exist without property rights. Since material goods are produced by the mind and effort of individual men, and are needed to sustain their lives, if the producer does not own the result of his effort, he does not own his life. To deny property rights means to turn men into property owned by the state. Whoever claims the "right" to "redistribute" the wealth produced by others is claiming the "right" to treat human beings as chattel."

Europe's surrender of its national sovereignty began after WWII with the 1957 Treaty of Rome that created the European Economic Committee (EEC) which eventually became the European Union(EU) of today. Internationalizing Europe's sovereign nation states into the EU left the United States as the single greatest obstacle to one-world government.

Macron's victory in France is a victory for collectivism at the expense of French sovereignty and French individualism represented by Marine Le Pen. It is a surrender to postmodern moral relativism, and historical revisionism designed to destroy democracy and its incomparable individual rights and freedoms.

The question is WHO benefits from Macron's victory?? The globalist elite of course. Socialism (total government control) is the death of democracy and is the prerequisite for internationalizing nation states and the imposition of one-world government Globalism.

The greatest single obstacle to one-world government is the nation state. National sovereignty is to a country what individual sovereignty is to a human being.

The left-wing liberal agenda seeks to destroy the socio-political capitalist infrastructure of America and transform it into a dependent European-style socialist state with cradle to grave control by the government.

Their strategy is to destroy American democracy by dismantling the supporting American institutions of family, religion, and education that promote independence, adulthood, individualism, and ego strength -- the same qualities that made America great.

Ayn Rand warns us:

"Socialism is not a movement of the people. It is a movement of the intellectuals, originated, led and controlled by the intellectuals, carried by them out of their stuffy ivory towers into those bloody fields of practice where they unite with their allies and executors -- the thugs."

American education, our elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and universities, are a specific target and field of practice. The anarchists, socialists, and hippies of the 60s have become the teachers and professors now indoctrinating their students toward collectivism.

The problem, of course, is that these narcissistic intellectuals have never lived under collectivist tyranny -- they are armchair pundits living in subjective reality. Anyone interested in the objective reality of collectivism should be listening to those who have escaped from its tyrannical rule.

The entire narrative of the Left is designed to induce regression through educational indoctrination and the media -- as Hillary Clinton famously remarked they need "an unaware compliant public."

Unaware and compliant are the hallmarks of childhood. The pitch might sound good to a childish mind who is seduced by candy from a stranger but the adult mind understands the sinister end-game.

Once the public is entirely dependent on the government they lose all individual rights and national sovereignty as the socialized state becomes part of the internationalized one-world government. The doors of the car lock and there is no escape -- only exploitation and enslavement.

One-world government is the big lie of the 21st century. It promises redistribution of wealth and social justice. What it delivers is unapologetically described in chilling detail by globalist elite English aristocrat Lord Bertrand Russell in his 1952 book The Impact of Science on Society.

The left-wing liberal lemmings are the useful idiots who are too arrogant to understand that they are participating in their own destruction. They have been indoctrinated to believe they are fighting for "social justice" when in fact they are helping to establish the dystopian nightmare of one-world government where there is no middle class, no upward mobility, no national sovereignty, and no individual freedoms. There is only the ruling elite and the enslaved population who service them.

The left-wing liberal lemmings in Europe and in America should take a break from marching and "resisting" and start reading Bertrand Russell's The Impact of Science on Society written in 1952. They will learn that their script was written 65 years ago by the globalist elites who dreamed of one-world government -- a binary socio-political system of masters and slaves.

The globalist elite's New World Order was their self-serving answer to the Malthusian problem of the earth not having enough resources to sustain the population growth. Tavistock Institute was exported to America with the purpose of indoctrinating Americans via education and the media -- particularly television -- the greatest vehicle for mass social engineering ever invented.

The Hollywood glitterati and the protesting hoards should take a pause and understand there is no place for them in the New World Order -- they are simply useful idiots who will be destroyed.

The aristocratic Lord Bertrand Russell and the late David Rockefeller had no moral problem with eliminating the useless eaters any more than Hitler with exterminating Jews, Islamists with exterminating infidels, or the Chinese Emperors with burying their concubines alive to service them in the afterlife. The point is elitism is supremacist -- there is no egalitarian respect for human life only the pretense of humanitarian considerations.

The Left and the Islamists have common cause in trying to destroy America from within -- but it is the globalist elites who finance and disingenuously facilitate both groups because the social chaos they each engender is a prerequisite for imposing globalist one-world government. For the globalist elite whether in Europe or in America, the Left and the Islamists are BOTH useful idiots.

Socialism will never provide social justice -- it will only provide the pathway to one-world government where no individual rights or self-determination exist. Socialism strips the individual of his selfness and transforms that individual into property of the state. The individual who willingly forfeits his selfness for socialism has been successfully persuaded to stop being an individual. Socialism is not a free ride it is slavery.

Connecting the dots -- Islamism…Socialism…Globalism

pic842.jpg
Ayn Rand

Linda Goudsmit (IndependentSentinel) says the word globalism is often used in its narrowest context to mean global trade, which obscures its broader political intention to internationalize nation states and ultimately impose one-world government.

Similarly the word Islamism is often used in its narrowest context to mean a religion like any other which obscures its broader political intention to reestablish the caliphate and impose sharia law worldwide.

Both are supremacist, expansionist socio-political movements intent on world dominion.

Islamists like Globalists believe themselves and their supremacist tenets to be morally superior to all others. The Islamist cloaks his supremacy in religious fervor and the disingenuous conviction that Islam is a "peaceful" religion because peace to an Islamist means when all the world is Muslim.

The Globalist cloaks his supremacy in a parallel and equally disingenuous conviction that Globalism is "tolerant" because tolerance to a globalist means tolerating those who look different, not those who THINK differently.

Both systems are tyrannical in their demand for absolute conformity to their proscribed rules of behavior -- for Islamists it is religious sharia law and for globalists it is secular political correctness.

The Islamist and the Globalist are both soldiers in their parallel wars seeking totalitarian rule of the world. The difference between Islamists and Globalists is the difference between communism and socialism described by Ayn Rand:

"There is no difference between Communism and Socialism, except in the means of acheiving the same ultimate end -- Communism proposes to enslave men by force -- Socialism by the vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide.

Islamism and Globalism appear to exist on opposite sides of the political spectrum but they share a common enemy -- the nation state. Nationalism is the single greatest obstacle to the religious caliphate of Islamism and to the secular one-world government of Globalism. The ancient proverb "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" explains the counter-intuitive common cause and intersectional alliance between Islamists and Globalists today.

Disinformation is a deliberate tactic of war.

The Islamist fiction that the annihilation of Israel will bring peace to the middle east is a unifying disinformation tactic of war designed to demonize Israel, manipulate public opinion, and garner intersectional support from left-wing liberal lemmings against Israel.

Islamist disinformation has a name -- Taqiyya -- lying in the service of Islam. It is a deceitful strategy that deflects attention from the Islamist end game of eliminating all infidels including the gullible left-wing liberal infidels who support them.

Similarly, the disinformation campaign supporting the fiction that Socialism will bring justice to the United States also has a name -- Alinskiyya -- lying in the service of Socialism. The hippies and anarchists of the 60's did not go quietly into the night.

They have reconstituted themselves as the professors, administrators, politicians, activist judges, and policy-makers adhering to well-defined Tavistock Institute principles of social engineering and mass indoctrination designed to disinform, destabilize, and destroy America from within. Whoever controls the information controls society -- and whoever controls the educational curriculum controls the future.

Islamists and Globalists follow the same expansionist playbook codified by Saul Alinsky in his 1971 book Rules for Radicals, Rule #12:

"Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it. Don't try to attack abstract corporations or bureaucracies. Identify a responsible individual. Ignore attempts to shift or spread the blame."

Israel and America have been demonized, targeted, personalized, and polarized because both are unapologetic and unwavering in their commitments to their national sovereignty.

The war against Israel and America is a war against nationalism. Israel's right to exist as a sovereign Jewish state is actually being debated as is America's right to exist as a sovereign democratic nation.

The left-wing liberal narrative courtesy of Barack Hussein Obama has reformatted American education and American entertainment to reflect the dreams from his father -- a Kenyan radical socialist who considered America an evil colonial power.

The information war waged by the colluding mainstream media, academia, and the entertainment industry foments American self-loathing, demonizes President Donald Trump the symbol of America-first nationalism, and glorifies socialism, anti-semitism, and presents internationalism as the panacea that will bring social justice to the masses.

Socialism has never worked in the long-run in any country in the world because as Margaret Thatcher pointed out "Eventually you run out of other people's money."

Socialism has only had limited success in the short-run in very small homogenous populations because socialism and pluralism are antithetical to each other. Socialism's greatest success is in destroying a nation's prosperity and in sacrificing individual citizen's rights to government control.

Ayn Rand explains that socialism even robs an individual of his right to exist:

"Socialism is the doctrine that man has no right to exist for his own sake, that his life and his work do not belong to him, but belong to society, that the only justification of his existence is his service to society, and that society may dispose of him in any way it pleases for the sake of whatever it deems to be its own tribal, collective good."

The essential question is WHY the Left is promoting communist values.

The left-wing liberal agenda seeks to destroy the socio-political capitalist infrastructure of American democracy and transform it into a dependent socialist state with cradle to grave control by the government.

Their strategy is to destroy the traditional American institutions of family, religion, and education that promote independence, adulthood, individualism, and ego strength -- all the qualities that made America great.

The entire narrative of the Left is designed to induce regression through educational indoctrination and the media -- as Hillary Clinton famously remarked they need "an unaware compliant public." Unaware and compliant are the hallmarks of childhood.

The sales pitch might sound good to a childish mind who is seduced by candy from a stranger but the adult mind understands the sinister end-game. Once the public is entirely dependent on the government they lose all individual rights and national sovereignty and the newly socialized state is poised to become part of an internationalized one-world government.

That is the long-game of the globalist elite and the motivation for indoctrinating America toward socialism.

The problem is that the left-wing liberal lemmings are too arrogant to understand that they are participating in their own destruction -- they are just the useful idiots.

The Left has been successfully indoctrinated to believe they are fighting for "social justice" when in fact they are helping to establish the dystopian nightmare of one-world government where there is no middle class, no upward mobility, no national sovereignty, and absolutely no individual freedoms.

There is only the master ruling elite and the enslaved population who service them. The left-wing liberal lemmings should take a break from marching and "resisting" and start reading Bertrand Russell's The Impact of Science on Society written in 1952. They will learn that their script was written 65 years ago by the globalist elites who dreamed of their own one-world government -- a binary socio-political system of masters and slaves.

The globalist elite's New World Order is antithetical social justice -- it is the elite's self-serving answer to the Malthusian problem of the earth not having enough resources to sustain the population growth.

Tavistock Institute was exported to America after WWII with the specific purpose of indoctrinating Americans via education and the media -- particularly television -- the greatest vehicle for mass social engineering ever invented.

The Hollywood glitterati and the protesting hoards should take a pause and understand there is no place for them in the New World Order -- they are simply useful idiots who will be destroyed.

The aristocratic Lord Bertrand Russell and the late David Rockefeller had no moral problem with eliminating the useless eaters anymore than Hitler had with exterminating Jews, Islamists with slaughtering infidels, or the Chinese Emperors with burying their concubines alive to service them in the afterlife.

The point is elitism is supremacist -- there is no social justice or egalitarian respect for human life only the pretense of humanitarian considerations.

The Left and the Islamists have common cause in trying to destroy America from within -- but it is the globalist elites who finance and disingenuously facilitate both groups because the social chaos they each engender is a prerequisite for imposing globalist one-world government.

For the globalist elite the Left and the Islamists are BOTH useful idiots. The globalist elite are playing chess while the Islamists and Leftists/Socialists are playing checkers.

California ends ban on communists in government jobs

pic805.jpg

Sophia Bollag (SacramentoBee) is reporting that Being a communist would no longer be a fireable offense for California government employees under a bill passed Monday by the state Assembly.

Lawmakers narrowly approved the bill to repeal part of a law enacted during the Red Scare of the 1940s and '50s when fear that communists were trying to infiltrate and overthrow the U.S. government was rampant. The bill now goes to the Senate.

It would eliminate part of the law that allows public employees to be fired for being a member of the Communist Party.

Employees could still be fired for being members of organizations they know advocate for overthrowing the government by force or violence.

The bill updates an outdated provision in state law, said Assemblyman Rob Bonta, the San Francisco Bay Area Democrat who authored the measure.

Some Assembly Republicans said the Cold War-era law should not be changed.

Assemblyman Randy Voepel, a Southern California Republican who fought in the Vietnam War, said communists in North Korea and China are "still a threat."

"This bill is blatantly offensive to all Californians," said Assemblyman Travis Allen, a Republican who represents a coastal district in Southern California. "Communism stands for everything that the United States stands against."

The title of this thread is Communist, Socialist and Democrats -- is there a difference?

Well, there's your answer!

The nightmare reality of the Communist dream -- another Communist fantasizes that "this time" they'll get it right

pic783.jpg

Mark Tapson (FrontPage) says with a Republican in the White House threatening to -- horrors! -- make America great again, nostalgia for the Communist-utopia-that-could-have-been is running high among dejected leftists. Last Monday on May Day, otherwise known among Reds as International Workers' Day, the New York Times actually published an encomium to those thrilling days of yesteryear "when Communism inspired Americans." But it's not just American communists keeping the dream alive; in the run up to May Day the week before, writing for the digital news publication Quartz, Australia's Helen Razer explained "Why I'm a Communist—and Why You Should Be, Too."

According to the website description, the chief focus of Razer's work "has been what she sees as the crisis of liberalism." The real crisis is that true liberalism has been shoved aside by a radical left that embraces violent totalitarianism, but that's not Razer's take. In her mind, the crisis is that pure communism hasn't been given enough of a chance to succeed. "Communism is a system of social organization that has never been truly tried and, these days, never truly explained. Yet it inspires fear in some, derision in others, and an almost universal unconcern for what it is actually intended to convey."

This is the excuse communists repeatedly trot out in the face of a tsunami of evidence that their ideology has indeed been tried all over the world and has proven to be arguably the most devastating, inhumane belief system ever imposed on mankind. Every country where communism has been "tried" has gone to hell because of it. That's not a coincidence nor is it just a failed effort to get it right; that is the inevitable consequence of communism.

No no no, Razer and other communist hopefuls argue. Marx's ideas aren't evil, just misunderstood. All this "fearful European talk about the 'specter' of communism," for example, is nothing but "jittery gossip," she states. So, "given that a) Marx is tough, and b) you're pretty busy making profit for capitalists all day," she has taken it upon herself to enlighten you about this "historical stage vital to the flourishing of all."

Of all the descriptors one might associate with communism in the real world [as opposed to academic theorizing], "flourishing" isn't exactly one that leaps to mind. "Widespread poverty" is, however, and "mass starvation," not to mention "purges," "totalitarianism," and "secret police." But Razer doesn't mention any of those downsides. In the minds of her and other true believers, it is a small class of capitalists who are the slavers and true communism will save us:

Communism is the critique and the antidote to capitalism, with all its problems, including those of social and cultural division… A communist seeks the abolition of property, whether held by the state or private firms and citizens; they want all of us to own everything equally and become our own dictators. A communist seeks conditions to end the state entirely and have all human society collectively managed.

And yet somehow, instead of ending the state, communism always seems to give rise to a soulless, all-controlling state under which human society is collectively ravaged, not managed.

"There is no blueprint for communism," Razer continues. "[W]e can't predict with real accuracy where we are being led by the next stage." Actually, we can. Based on vast experience we can predict with 100% accuracy that communism will lead to ruinous corruption, universal misery, crushing poverty, gulags and torture, starvation and mass death, and the end of freedom.

Razer rather hilariously admits that a few eggs must necessarily be broken to make Marx's idealized omelet. "This is not to say that the seizing of power by socialists eager for the communist stage of history is going to be a picnic. Things started well at the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg, but they didn't continue in this strategic, bloodless mode." But hey, next time things will go smoothly: "A future transfer could be peaceful—even the result of democratic elections—allowing for the possibility in the West of a truly democratic election free from intervention by the capitalist class."

Razer concedes that capitalism has given us enormous abundance, leisure and freedom, but then complains that it has left us with "environmental devastation" and nuclear weapons, threats that will require "a certain level of totalitarian management. It is my view that an honest communist can now no longer say that the state can be done away with entirely—these true threats require a handful of true bureaucrats to manage them."

Well at least she's an honest communist in this respect, admitting that a pure collective isn't possible and that it will take "a certain level of totalitarian management" and a handful of "true bureaucrats" to run things. She doesn't explain how we are supposed to transition from a bureaucratic totalitarianism to that beautiful dream of a truly democratic collective.

Nevertheless, there's a rosy future for communism ahead, Razer believes. "Capitalism had many false starts," she declares. No mention anywhere in her article of a hundred years of communism's brutal false starts in the former Soviet Union, China, Cuba, Cambodia, North Korea, the former North Vietnam and East Germany, in eastern Europe, even in African countries like Angola. No mention of the untold millions of deaths -- by some estimates over 100 million -- and the incalculable torment from murder and starvation caused by communist regimes.

And yet Razer blithely pronounces communism on the upswing and capitalism fatally ill. "And now, in the view of a commie such as myself, [capitalism] is enduring a very real end." On the contrary, it is communism that is coming to an end everywhere in the world in the face of the appeal and promise of capitalist freedom and prosperity. Capitalism is not utopian; like humanity, it is messy and imperfect under the best of conditions. But it contains within itself the mechanisms for self-correction, and it embraces human nature -- unlike the dehumanizing nature of communism.

Communists like Helen Razer and her fellow travelers at the New York Times and in the democratic Party cling to their dream of a collective utopia, but deny that its reality is inevitably a nightmare.

Change in Democrat control since 2008

The FireAndreaMitchell blog says clueless Democrats think they are somehow "on the rebound" because they smear all Trump voters and won participation trophies in a couple of special elections. Other than that, Democrats still haven't come to reality. Since Obama's reign of terror began, Democrats in control of state legislatures, governors, Senate and House representation has gone done faster than Bill Clinton on a prostitute.

pic713.jpg

No matter how hard they try, by requiring all supporters to be pro-abortion (as Tom Perez said), or crank out fake news stories to CNN and the rest of the Soros media complex, the fact of the matter is, Americans hate the Democrats and their socialist platform. The Democrats have been rightly reduced to a bi-coastal and ghetto party. They will never recover.

A Marxist Hillary fantasizes about redistributing Trump's wealth when he's dead

pic150.jpg 

And, S. Noble (IndependentSentinel) says she's applauded for it!

Hillary Clinton showed off her true Marxist-Communist values and her vision of what she -- as the government -would do with Trump's money after he's dead during her speech on the economy Thursday and she did so to rousing applause.

The media should be grabbing on to this in no time.

Envisioning a dead Trump, she saw his hard-earned money going, not to his heirs, but to the government that would first take their slice and then pass it on somewhere to their liking, mostly to cronies who donate and some would go to their special interest voters. Hillary said:

"And then there's the estate tax, which Trump wants to eliminate altogether. Now if you believe that he's as wealthy as he says, that alone would save the Trump family four billion dollars. It would do nothing for 99.8% of Americans. So they'd get a four billion dollar tax cut, and 99.8% of Americans would get nothing."

"Just think of what we could do with those four billion dollars. We could pay for more than forty-seven thousand veterans to get a four-year college degree. We could provide a year's worth of health care to nearly three million kids. Or we could fund a year's worth of federal assistance to state and local law enforcement. I think there are a lot of better ways to spend the money."

This is no different than a thief desiring another person's money and going up to them with a gun and demanding it.

The estate tax is theft plain and simple but a lot of Americans now believe it's the government's money and that they will share it appropriately after they take their slice and pay off union workers.

So successful is man's greed and jealousy that people will be happy simply to see the rich have their money stolen from them, even after death. They see the rich as evil and everyone else as good when in fact most rich are good and generous people but not all poor are good.

Her communist tenets of class warfare and redistribution of wealth with the government as thief are now accepted by many Democrats and some Republicans. where is the media?

Hillary will kill small business who will be taxed as richer than they are because they are taxed before deductions. She will make the super rich and corporations pay more though the top 1% already pay more than 45.7% of the federal taxes with nearly half the country -- 45% -- paying nothing -- they have no stake in this country.

That is not moral. Listen to what she is saying -- it's moral for the government to confiscate wealth and put it in the pockets of those who did nothing to earn it. She is saying it's moral to tax someone 60 to 70 percent or more of their income and it's just fine to tax them after death on money that has already been taxed and that they earned.

And, no, you didn't build that, they did.

Then there is leftist cry of "The Buffet Rule," which is built on a lie. It's a campaign gimmick.

The Buffett rule is a fraud and next to the faux war on women, it is one of the biggest frauds ever perpetrated on the American people.

For example, the 30% income tax rate on capital gains would raise less than 6% of the total cost of the stimulus and would raise roughly the same amount in one year as the U.S. government accumulates in debt in a single day.

The Buffett rule is totally meaningless, not serious. Reporters should do their job and put this in perspective.

The media is going along with this hoax and pretending that the Buffett rule will make the difference. They investigate nothing Hillary or Obama say.

Hillary is echoing Obama's bad policies for the economy. Buffett didn't even define the rule the way Obama is defining it -- check his video at the end to see how confused he is. This is nothing more than a political ruse.

Prosperity comes from the producers, notably when they are able to hire people, invent, build. It does not come from the government. We saw eight years of the government "building" at slightly better than 1% growth in the GDP.

Obama is not telling the American people the truth.

Former Mayor Mike Bloomberg disputed the Buffett doctrine and said that, "A very small percentage in this country pay a big chunk of the taxes" which we noted above.

Our tax system is already overly progressive and it's about to get worse with Obama's doppelgänger Hillary, only she's far more corrupt.

Re-capping Bernie's frightening Socialist speech at the DNC

pic972.jpg

S. Noble (IndependentSentinel) is reporting that Bernie used subtle Marxist terminology throughout his DNC speech last night — "workers, brothers and sisters, the struggle, living wage, political revolution".

Bernie sees income inequality as immoral. This was Obama's economy but he blamed it on Capitalism for the last 40 years and George Bush.

"This election is about ending the grotesque level of income and wealth inequality that we have in America today. [Cheering] It is not moral, not acceptable and it is not sustainable that the top 1/10 of 1% now own almost as much wealth as the bottom 90%."

"Or that the top 1% in recent years has earned 85% of all new income. That is unacceptable. That must change."

[….]

This election is about ending the grotesque level of income and wealth inequality that we currently experience, the worst it has been since 1928. It is not moral, not acceptable and not sustainable that the top one-tenth of one percent now own almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent, or that the top 1 percent in recent years has earned 85 percent of all new income. That is unacceptable. That must change.

[…]

The Republicans want us to forget that as a result of the greed, recklessness and illegal behavior on Wall Street, our economy was in the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. Some 800,000 people a month were losing their jobs. We were running up a record-breaking deficit of $1.4 trillion and the world's financial system was on the verge of collapse.

The political revolution for full-blown socialism has made enormous progress under Bernie. Socialism is a system that has wreaked havoc around the world.

Together, my friends, we have begun a political revolution to transform America and that revolution -- our revolution -- continues. Election days come and go. But the struggle of the people to create a government which represents all of us and not just the 1 percent -- a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice -- that struggle continues. And I look forward to being part of that struggle with you.

Bernie again described what Hillary knows -- every one gets a "living" wage if they simply show up at any job for 40 hours and the minimum wage is to be much higher. Wages are to be determined by government, not business.

Hillary Clinton understands that if someone in America works 40 hours a week, that person should not be living in poverty. She understands that we must raise the minimum wage to a living wage. And she is determined to create millions of new jobs by rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure -- our roads, bridges, water systems and wastewater plants.

Overturning free speech will result from this one.

This election is about overturning Citizens United, one of the worst Supreme Court decisions in the history of our country.

This one is terrifying.

Hillary Clinton will nominate justices to the Supreme Court who are prepared to overturn Citizens United and end the movement toward oligarchy in this country. Her Supreme Court appointments will also defend a woman's right to choose, workers' rights, the rights of the LGBT community, the needs of minorities and immigrants and the government's ability to protect the environment.

He forgot to mention overturning Heller and destroying the Second Amendment. Hillary's immigration plan is to circumvent Congress and give full amnesty to anyone who managed to cross our borders. The Constitution will be meaningless under Hillary.

Free college for anyone on your tax dollars.

[Hillary's plan for college debt] It will guarantee that the children of any family in this country with an annual income of $125,000 a year or less -- 83 percent of our population -- will be able to go to a public college or university tuition free. That proposal also substantially reduces student debt.

He should have called the following the biggest power grab by globalists.

This election is about climate change, the greatest environmental crisis facing our planet, and the need to leave this world in a way that is healthy and habitable for our kids and future generations.

He went on about healthcare, a system which Obama has seriously damaged or perhaps destroyed, and the allegedly unfair justice system though it is one of the best in the world.

The man who praised the Sandanistas and the Castro brothers, concluded by saying this Democrat platform is "by far, the most progressive platform in the history of the Democratic Party."

Did you know bernie Sanders didn’t earn a paycheck until he turned 40 years old

The Spectator says Bernie Sanders is beloved by a lot of people who live in their parents' basement and work part time to pay the bare minimum on the student loans they collected in pursuit of their Gender Studies degrees. Ostensibly, this is because your typical Millennial ne'er do well is fascinated by the idea of receiving things for free from the government in return for maintaining their citizenship, or because they heard about Bernie Sanders in their subversive knitting group or picked up a campaign flier at Urban Outfitters.

But if it turns out that the "takers" of the world are seeing their own reflection in Bernie's LensCrafters clearance section specs, it's because, it turns out, Bernie Sanders is, indeed, one of their own: a man who failed to earn a decent paycheck for actual work until almost his 40th birthday.

Despite a prestigious degree, however, Sanders failed to earn a living, even as an adult. It took him 40 years to collect his first steady paycheck — and it was a government check.

"I never had any money my entire life," Sanders told Vermont public TV in 1985, after settling into his first real job as mayor of Burlington.

Sanders spent most of his life as an angry radical and agitator who never accomplished much of anything. And yet now he thinks he deserves the power to run your life and your finances — "We will raise taxes;" he confirmed Monday, "yes, we will."

One of his first jobs was registering people for food stamps, and it was all downhill from there.

Sanders took his first bride to live in a maple sugar shack with a dirt floor, and she soon left him. Penniless, he went on unemployment. Then he had a child out of wedlock. Desperate, he tried carpentry but could barely sink a nail. "He was a shi**y carpenter," a friend told Politico Magazine. "His carpentry was not going to support him, and didn’t."

Then he tried his hand freelancing for leftist rags, writing about "masturbation and rape" and other crudities for $50 a story. He drove around in a rusted-out, Bondo-covered VW bug with no working windshield wipers. Friends said he was "always poor" and his "electricity was turned off a lot." They described him as a slob who kept a messy apartment — and this is what his friends had to say about him.

The only thing he was good at was talking … non-stop … about socialism and how the rich were ripping everybody off. 

So, basically, Bernie Sanders was that jobless friend who hangs around coffee shops where he cons you into buying his drink, only to talk your ear off about how amazing Che Guevara was, and how he's living off the grid in an apartment without flooring or heat because he doesn't trust The Man because The Man is totally in the pocket of corporate America, even though you're meeting in a Starbucks and his order was way more complicated than yours. Every once in a while he mentions running for office, but it's usually left as a pipe dream because he's too lazy to ever get around to forming up a campaign, so he hangs out in his basement or yours, writing terrible stories for his "alternative political ‘zine" and scouring thrift stores for drab, vaguely militaristic clothing.

Somehow, this guy managed to make it to Congress, where he earned his first real income, making him, of course, a career politician -- if only because being a politician was literally his only career.

And it's not as though Sanders had the kind of rough upbringing that would lead one to assume his level of success was unprecedented within his family. Although he did grow up poor, as Business Insider notes, he did well enough -- and his family did well enough -- to send him to the University of Chicago, presumably where he acquired his left wing views, to get a degree he, apparently, never used, except as a resume builder when he was angling for his government paycheck forty years later. But, I suppose, his utter lack of economic education had to come from somewhere.

A Democrat congressional candidate disses America

pic848.jpg 

The New York Daily News is reporting that a deranged former Manhattan prosecutor and longtime defense attorney is getting blasted by his colleagues for telling a popular website that 9/11 "was one of the greatest events in human history."

Scott Fenstermaker, in inflammatory remarks for the "Humans of New York" website, said the country "got what it deserved" because of past injustices and unapologetically praised the terrorist act that changed the world and scarred New York forever.

"I've had people threaten to kill me. I've had people threaten to rape my children, but I'll keep saying it," Fenstermaker said in the shocking profile. He invited people to "call me a monster."

"I think the people in those towers died as representatives for the rest of us, for our crimes against humanity," he's quoted as saying. "Not only do I think that 9/11 was deserved, I think it was one of the greatest events in human history."

The page, which does not identify him by name but contains his portrait, went viral among members of the city's legal community, including colleagues at the Centre Street courts who work and have offices within five minutes of Ground Zero.

The overwhelming response has been disgust.

More proof that the liberal-progressive is clinically insane.

Socialist refuses to talk about socialism's failures in Latin America

How can Sanders talk about socialism's failures when he's trying to sell socialism to Americans?

Bernie Sanders, Democratic Socialism, and the Communist connection

pic316.jpg

Macey France (Politichicks) says I'm currently reading "The Enemies Within" by Trevor Loudon. If you don't have it it's a great book to buy, especially if you're open-minded to learning the truth about how communism is slowly infiltrating the U.S.

As I am reading this book I'm realizing something about communists. They work covertly and the use covers. They claim they have a 3 legged stool system set up and they won't be finished until all 3 legs are there. Right now they have one -- the democrat party. Their cover and the largest pusher of Soviet-like policy in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Now I'll switch gears to what I want to talk about; follow me, if you will.

There are tons of people out there supporting Bernie Sanders, a Democratic Socialist. The word "democratic" is superfluous here. There is no "democratic" about it, it's only there to soften the blow of the word SOCIALIST. Make no mistake, that is what Bernie is…in my humble opinion.

The people who are supporting him and protesting and clashing with Trump supporters are being fooled. They hear "equality, wage gap, free, free, and free" and they want it. They aren't thinking about the long term, only the short term gratification. Isn't that the way of the US anymore?

Of course, a socialist is, or at least the Democratic Socialists of America (or DCA) are very closely aligned with the CPUSA. Being socialist is a stepping stone to being a communist -- if you haven't committed to being a communist already.

For others, it is just a front. A way to work in the Democratic Party to push communist policies while hiding the fact that they are, indeed, communist.

A very large way of affecting policy is to be in a union, say, AFL-CIO, for example. I've known that unions have been a tool of the Communist Part of America (CPUSA) for some years. This is a scary thought when you realize the power that unions have. I'm not even talking about the average union members here, mind you. I'm talking about the union bosses.

Look at how the unions helped Obama to get elected and to pass the Affordable Care Act. Unions are able to lift up delegates and candidates. They are able to put the money behind their candidates to get them to win elections. A strong liberal or progressive "democrat" (read: communist, in this scenario) candidate can actually win a highly conservative district. This is concerning.

I know a lot of actual republicans or so-called conservatives are supporting Bernie Sanders. The reason they often give is because he is vowing to invest in new infrastructure. Bridges, roads, etc.

That's all well and good, and something that we desperately need. However, Bernie, a closet communist, would definitely call on the unions to fix this infrastructure. Unions who would be beholden to him for throwing big contracts their way.

I'm pretty sure it's the way to make sure that millions of voters, including the immigrant population, keep voting for democrats. Who, like Bernie, will eventually come out as "Democratic Socialists," and then just "socialists," and then just plain Communist.

Now -- this is just a scenario I have rolling around in my brain. Maybe nothing would play out like that. Maybe I'm wrong; I do think I have at least part of it right, though.

People point out to me that it doesn't matter, our infrastructure needs help. And it does. But say all workers will be union members, or a majority of them will be. And they all have good paying jobs now and allegiance to their union and their union's puppets.

It would get the economy going, right? Doesn't matter if that is a side effect for the short term. In the long term, the people in office and filling our congress and eventually the White House would be communists.

Then we all lose.

"The goal of socialism is communism."
 -- Vadimir Lenin

Bernie Sanders is not a good guy

pic310.jpg

Jack Kerwick (FrontPage) says even among far too many Republicans, a popular misconception persists that Bernie Sanders, while fundamentally wrong-headed politically, is nevertheless a decent person that means well for the country.

In the meantime, it is Donald Trump and his supporters who have gotten branded as "haters" who encourage violence.

This is bizarro world or, what amounts to the same thing, an ideologically-useful fiction of the Left.

In reality, Sanders' supporters have proven themselves to be far more violent-prone than the supporters of any other candidate, Republican or Democrat.  In fact, it is only Sanders' supporters who have established a pattern of visiting violence upon those with whom they disagree.

On the weekend of May 14-15, a Nevada Democratic convention had to be shut down because security at the hotel at which it was held couldn't contain the mayhem unleashed by the hordes of disgruntled fans of the self-avowed "socialist" from Vermont.  In addition to hurling obscenities and accosting people, Sanders' supporters hurled chairs and issued death threats against the state party chairwoman, Roberta Lange.

As of the Monday following the melee, state party offices were still closed for security reasons: Sanders supporters, ever true to the leftist's playbook, made public Lange's home and business addresses, email and cell phone number.

Reportedly, Lange has received hundreds of profane calls and texts from Sanders' backers in America and beyond.  She and her family are being threatened.  The restaurant at which she's employed as well has been deluged by a tsunami of threatening calls.

The phone was finally unplugged.

"It is endless," Lange says, "and the longer it goes the worse it gets."  She bemoans that she feels "threatened everywhere I go."

In a letter to the co-chairs of the DNC Rules and By-laws Committee, the Nevada state party explained the circumstances surrounding the chaos.  "The explosive situation arose in large part," the letter begins, "because a portion of the community of Sanders delegates arrived at the Nevada Democratic State Convention believing itself to be a vanguard intent upon sparking a street-fight rather than attending an orderly political party process" (italics added).  

The state party's general counsel, Bradley S. Schrager, insisted upon alerting the DNC to "the Sanders campaign's penchant for extra-parliamentary behavior -- indeed, actual violence -- in place of democratic conduct in a convention setting" and its "encouragement of, and complicity in, a very dangerous atmosphere that ended in chaos and physical threats to fellow Democrats" (italics added).

Even Sanders supporter and Nevada congressional candidate, Lucy Flores, acknowledged that her ilk acted indefensibly.  "There were actions over the weekend," she asserted in a written statement, "that very clearly crossed the line.  Progressives need to speak out against those: Making threats against someone's life, defacing private property, and hurling vulgar language at our female leaders."

Senators Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, and Harry Reid -- veteran Democrats all of them -- claim to have never before witnessed such a gross display of incivility at any of their conventions.   The word "disrespectful," Boxer claimed, "doesn't even explain it," for "it was worse than that."

According to CBS News, multiple "female senators told CNN [that] the attacks" on their opponents by Sanders' supporters have been misogynistic." 

There are now fears that Sanders' people will unleash the same poisonous combination of hatred and intolerance upon the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia later this year that it unleashed in Las Vegas this past weekend.

And these fears couldn't be more justified.

Of course, it is only now that Sanders' thugs have them in their crosshairs that Democrats are concerned about the "penchant for…violence" that has become such a salient characteristic among Sanders supporters.  But for months, the Vermont senator's disciples have been "making threats" against others' lives, "defacing private property," and "hurling vulgar language" at those whom they dislike.

Just ask the folks who have attended Donald Trump rallies in cities across the country.

Ask, as well, the police officers who Sanders' thugs assaulted as the former tried to protect Trump rally attendees.

Ask the countless motorists who may or may not have had any interest in politics but whose daily lives were disrupted by Sanders supporters who insisted upon blocking traffic.

When Sanders' backers, along with other leftist activist-thugs, succeeded in shutting down Trump's planned rally in Chicago, "People For Bernie" put out this lovely tweet: "Remember the #TrumpRally wasn't just luck.  It took organizers from dozens of organizations and thousands of people to pull off.  Great work."

The brutal truth of the matter is that this unapologetic socialist who styles himself an "outsider" in spite of having spent the last quarter of a century in the United States Senate has a following that acts brutally.

"Bernie" is most definitely not a "good" guy.  In addition to depending upon the confiscated resources of taxpayers for his own income, he as well plans on expanding the power of the federal government so as to fleece taxpayers even more for the sake of subsidizing those causes that he values.

And it is this, I submit, that primarily explains his supporters' disposition toward violence: Sanders' supporters are violence-prone precisely because they and their man embrace an inherently, if subtly, violent philosophy: Socialism, like communism (from which it differs, if at all, only in detail, not in kind), essentially militarizes society.

The socialist wants to commandeer the resources in person and property of individuals in order to marshal them toward the ends of the collective.  That is, socialism demands that individuals be forced to serve the interests of others, namely, socialist elites who will decide what those interests are.

Socialism, the position of Bernie and his sheep, is the position of the bully.

This being so, it should be of no surprise that, when socialists don't get their way, they are apt to resort to "whatever means necessary" in order to try until they do.

Organization for mass-murder endorses Hillary and Bernie

pic290.jpg

Cliff Kincaid (AccuracyInMedia) is reporting that the Communist Party (CPUSA) has been broadcasting its support for the national Democratic Party and both of its candidates. But for some reason, our media have failed to take notice.

Since 1980, when Ronald Reagan was elected president, the CPUSA -- then funded by Moscow -- has been organizing what it calls an "all-people's front" against the "extreme right," and it usually depends on the Democratic Party as its preferred electoral vehicle. John Bachtell, national chair of the Communist Party USA, explains, "This battle has been waged over 35 years through election cycles, in the legislative arena, and in the battle to sway public opinion."

The CPUSA endorsed Barack Obama for president in 2008 and his reelection in 2012. This year, party members are involved in the presidential campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), but are prepared to support former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton if she is the eventual nominee.

The open and admitted involvement of communists in the Democratic Party gets completely ignored by the press.

The CPUSA is based on Marxist doctrine, which calls for the abolition of private property and the overthrow of global capitalism. What is called "Cultural Marxism" seeks to eliminate traditional adherence to Judeo-Christian values and silence those in favor of traditional families and those who recognize male and female differences.

The CPUSA is associated with the International Meeting Of Communist And Workers' Parties, which represents the international communist movement and includes the Communist Party of Russia. In its contribution to the 2014 meeting, the CPUSA combined elements of traditional Marxism with the cultural version, urging action on behalf of the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer) communities, support for a "democratized and demilitarized U.S. foreign policy," and protection of the environment "through a massive movement against our domination by the fossil fuel industry…"

In foreign affairs, the CPUSA has also called for the abolition of NATO.

In the current election campaign, the CPUSA is firmly on the side of the Democrats. In a story about the "Super Tuesday" presidential primaries, the party newspaper, the People's World, announced that while the GOP was pushing "powerlessness," both Democratic candidates were promoting "empowerment" for the people. This is Marxist jargon for integrating Marxist demands into Democratic Party policies.

Although the liberal media tend to highlight differences between Senator Sanders and Mrs. Clinton, the communists say there is more that unites than divides them.

The Communists dislike Trump because of his "authoritarian" tendencies and criticism of immigrants. However, while the communists claim that Trump "glorifies militarism abroad," they have not explicitly condemned his foreign policy views, which tend to be on the isolationist side. Trump has been critical of NATO, which began as an anti-Soviet alliance, and is supportive of Russian foreign policy interests in Europe and the Middle East.

More recently, communist writer Larry Rubin expressed the Communist Party view that Sanders and Clinton have to do more to keep workers from defecting to Trump.

Ultimately, Rubin argued that in order to ensure a victory over the Republicans in November, Mrs. Clinton's campaign should "be ready to inherit the grassroots organizational models and far reaching proposals that have attracted so many working people and millennials to Bernie Sanders' political revolution," and that the Sanders campaign should "be ready to unite with the Clinton effort."

In this way, Marxists of various persuasions could take more important roles in the Clinton for president campaign.

In an interview, "Why America Is Warming To Socialism," national CPUSA chair John Bachtell mentioned the Sanders appeal and emphasized that "democracy would be at the center" of the growth of socialism in the U.S.

In a separate article, Bachtell warned against Sanders following a third party option in November, and urged communists to continue working through the Democratic Party. While Mrs. Clinton is perceived as "more hawkish on foreign policy," he said, she "is no neo-con." The term "neo-con" is often used to disparage advocates of U.S. global engagement and military intervention. "She supports diplomatic efforts like the Iran nuclear deal and the normalization of relations with Cuba," Bachtell said about Clinton.

Even on domestic issues, Clinton is acceptable to the Marxists because she "is susceptible to pressure from below" from Marxist agitators and their organizations, he said.

He went on to suggest that CPUSA members are currently working inside the Democratic Party by supporting Sanders. The Sanders program, he said, "addresses the needs of the country and is closest to our own. My guess is most of our members support the Sanders campaign."

Going beyond the Sanders campaign, however, he said the Democratic Party as a whole includes "a substantial current of self-described democratic socialists" and other activists who "exert influence and hold leadership positions at various levels. They still see the Democratic Party as the most viable means to advance their agendas within the party system at this moment."

As suggested by its endorsements of Obama in 2008 and 2012, the CPUSA has been very pleased with the Obama administration. The communists believe that Obama, who was influenced at an early age by CPUSA figure Frank Marshall Davis, has transformed America into a socialist state through Obamacare and other initiatives, and has changed U.S. foreign policy by establishing relations with anti-American regimes in Cuba and Iran.

Earlier this year, in response to Obama's State of the Union address, the People's World praised the first black president for projecting "a bold vision for a more socially and economically just nation while appealing to the hopes of the American people." The paper said, "President Obama recounted historic achievements of the administration and advanced the challenges with full knowledge of the powerful forces arrayed in opposition." Those achievements were said to include "creation of millions of new jobs, normalization of relations with Cuba, the Iran nuclear deal and Obamacare and extension of health care to 18 million people."

Looking ahead, the communists are counting on a "radical restructuring of the economy as advocated by Sen. Bernie Sanders," and "a new peaceful, non-interventionist foreign policy" that includes "elimination of weapons of mass destruction," the closing of U.S. military bases, and "radically downsizing the US military."

Such a plan, of course, would invite more Russian aggression in Europe and the Middle East, and encourage Chinese Communist expansion in Asia and the Pacific.

We eagerly anticipate U.S. media personalities questioning Sanders and Clinton about the support they are receiving from the CPUSA. Of course, any journalist who dares to raise the issue runs the risk of being perceived as a McCarthyite.

You might want to check out this short essay -- Karl Marx’s Communist Theory of the "Injustice" of Capitalism -- I found it interesting.

The Communist Party feels the Bern

pic79.jpg

Paul Kengor (FrontPage) says, as it has for months now, People's World again this past week carried a headline hailing Bernie Sanders "revolution." As the successor to the Soviet-funded and directed Daily Worker, and as ongoing house organ of Communist Party USA, People's World is pleased with the long march of "progress" in the Democratic Party. The far-left lurch of today's Democratic Party is lovingly in line with what the comrades have long desired. These inheritors of the Soviet experiment see Bernie Sanders as an exciting culmination of what they have been fighting for. And they view Barack Obama's "fundamental transformation" of the Democratic Party as having made a candidate like Bernie possible.

If you think this is hyperbole on my part, you should educate yourself by reading what today's communists are writing. As the latest exhibit, consider the instructive words of John Bachtell, Communist Party USA chair, in the latest valentine to Bernie in People's World:

The campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders is making a unique contribution to defeating the Republican right and has the potential to galvanize long-term transformative change. The campaign is also a movement. Millions are fed up with the same old establishment politics tied to Wall Street and the 1 per cent. It's reminiscent of the 2008 and 2012 Obama campaigns…. Seeds of change are being sown and foundations are being laid for deeper-going changes in the future….

The campaign is expanding the collective political imagination and injecting radical ideas into the body politic. It has legitimized democratic socialism in the national conversation. Sanders is also influencing Hillary Clinton to adopt more progressive positions on a wide range of issues. 

Note the Obama-speak in Bachtell's rhetoric, from the invoking of "transformative change" and "seeds of change" to pointing to the very model of Barack's 2008 and 2012 campaigns. And observe the excitement about Bernie having "legitimized democratic socialism in the national conversation" and influencing Hillary to adopt "more progressive positions."

The head of Communist Party USA continued: 

But Sanders understands if he is elected his radical economic and social agenda including breaking up the big banks, universal health care, tuition-free university, massive jobs creation, expanding Social Security, and repealing Citizen's United will go nowhere given the vice grip the GOP and extreme right has on Congress.

The only way to realize a radical agenda is through a "political revolution."… Sanders sees his campaign as part of a much bigger movement that must be built.

A political revolution rests on building a broad coalition…. A political revolution will be fueled by ongoing shifts in public attitudes. Majorities of Americans now favor taxing the rich, raising the minimum wage, immigration reform, abortion rights, marriage equality, criminal justice reform, and action to curb the climate crisis. New social movements are influencing millions at the grassroots including the Fight for 15, Black Lives Matter, The Dreamers, reproductive rights, marriage equality, and climate justice activists.

A political revolution is based on the idea that majorities make change. It is not enough for majorities to believe in an idea, they must actively fight for it…. Movements are acting both within and outside the Democratic Party and comprise many of the key forces in the anti-right alliance.

This pitch for Bernie in People's World by the head of Communist Party USA employs the rally cry "political revolution" a dozen times in under a thousand words, plus repeated use of the words "radical" and "progressive." Make no mistake: the comrades are jazzed for Bernie Sanders. They want, as another People's World writer likewise puts it, nothing short of a "Bernie Sanders political revolution."

Bachtell looks with hope at how Bernie's struggle could transform the political landscape and further remake the party of Kennedy and Truman:

A political revolution can transform politics if labor, its allies and the broad left put their stamp on the multi-class alliance, shape its politics and frame the issues debated for the elections. The Sanders campaign is helping do this…. It will be transformative if the anti-right coalition is united and mobilized. Polls show that 86% of Clinton supporters will support Sanders in the general election if he is the nominee, and 79% of Sanders supporters will support Clinton if she wins. Sanders will need Clinton's supporters in order to win.

Note, remarkably, the vast support for Sanders that exists not only among his own comrades but among Hillary Clinton backers. This is support, of course, for a man who has long been an avowed, unapologetic socialist, who was fully sympathetic to the communist universe.

Also revealing is how today's communists have hopped aboard the bandwagon of the new left's cultural agenda, including on sexual-gender issues. I've been pointing this out for some time (see my book on the left's takedown of family and marriage). The emergent Bernie-Democrat-socialist-communist-progressive-liberal coalition, advises Bachtell, "must fight uncompromisingly against racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant attacks and all efforts to divide."

Workers of the world, unite -- against "transphobia!" Who would have foreseen that one? Karl Marx, call your office.

Some Democrats reading this will lash out at me, as the messenger. But I urge them to again carefully read the words I'm quoting. They come directly from the head of Communist Party USA, a man who is the successor to Gus Hall, to Earl Browder, to William Z. Foster, writing in the house organ of CPUSA, People's World, successor to the Daily Worker. I ask Democrats: Does it not concern you that your no. 2 for the presidential nomination so fires up these literal communists? Does that not bother you?

Unfortunately, I fear that many of today's Democrats could care less, especially the Bernie millennials educated into pro-socialist imbecility by our public schools and universities. As one reader of The American Spectator put it after reading my previous post on Bernie, "I informed my son, now over 40, that Bernie was a Communist. He replied 'so what!"

Indeed, the Sanders campaign could mass-produce bumper stickers boldly touting "Bolsheviks for Bernie" sandwiched between grinning faces of Marx and Lenin and our contemporary products of the American university would shrug and cheer.

Returning to the appraisal of Communist Party USA, John Bachtell finished with this: "A political revolution will help establish the foundations for a real people's party, whether it results in a breakaway from or a takeover of the Democratic Party. Regardless of whether Sanders wins or not, the politics of the nation will never be the same and the fight for a political revolution will continue."

There we are, ladies and gentlemen. The new political revolution that "will continue" must come either with a breakaway from the Democratic Party or with a "takeover of the Democratic Party." Once upon a time in America, it seemed it could have only come with a breakaway. But now, in the Obama-Bernie America, a takeover of the Democrats has greater promise than ever. Just ask the literal millions of modern Democrats pulling the lever for a 74-year-old socialist as their next president. And just ask Bernie Sanders' advocates in Communist Party USA. They, too, feel the Bern.

Trevor Loudon releases Bernie Sanders exposé video in upcoming political documentary

Ann-Marie Murrell (Politichicks) is reporting that author and speaker Trevor Loudon has released a video exposing the radical ties of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in anticipation of Loudon's upcoming political documentary.

The New Zealand native is working with Iowa-based Director Judd Saul on the film The Enemies Within, which seeks to expose anti-American ties in the federal government. Loudon believes that a minority of radicals are responsible for unconstitutional and damaging policies that have been imposed on Americans for decades, a trend that has greatly accelerated under the Obama administration.

The carefully-honed media image of Bernie Sanders paints him as a mild socialist who seeks an America that provides more government services, like Norway or Sweden. Loudon, however, proves in his short film based on painstaking research that Bernie Sanders is a hard-core communist. 

Loudon, who first exposed the connection between then-Senator Obama and Hawaiian communist Frank Marshall Davis in 2007 refers to Bernie Sanders as "a totalitarian at heart." Sanders "has worked with spies, terrorist supporters and Eastern Bloc style communists his entire political career."

Award-winning filmmaker Judd Saul whose documentary "Unfair" aimed at "exposing the IRS" was in theatres last year became interested in working with Loudon because he "is not a man to hold back." Genuinely worried for America's future, Saul recognizes that America "needs a no-holds-barred film" that will reveal "the plain truth about the enemies within our country… [and] how they are about to destroy our nation."

When asked about the reaction to the controversial subject matter found in his book by the same name, Loudon said: "Nobody has ever challenged me on a point of fact." Saul continued, "We are willing to put it all on the line to deliver this message."

Is Democratic Socialism really different than Socialism?

A little long, but right on point. Worth watching.

Watch what Obama just told this young crowd about socialism vs capitalism

Michael Dorstewitz (BizPacReview) is reporting that while lecturing a group of Argentinian students, Barack Obama said that there's little difference between socialism and capitalism — that they're pretty much all the same.

He told the youths that although people like to debate the differences among capitalism, socialism and communism, those differences are so minor that people should simply pick an economic system that works and be done with it.

"So often in the past there has been a division between left and right, between capitalists and communists or socialists, and especially in the Americas, that's been a big debate," Obama told them at the Buenos Aires town hall.

"Those are interesting intellectual arguments, but I think for your generation, you should be practical and just choose from what works. You don't have to worry about whether it really fits into socialist theory or capitalist theory. You should just decide what works."

Venezuela chose socialism, and while people in that country can't find a roll of toilet paper on their shelves, capitalist countries can choose among many brands and whether they want to go soft or go strong.

And what of Cuba.

"To president Castro, I said you've made great progress in educating young people [Cuban dictators indoctrinate its youth]. Every child in Cuba gets a basic education. Medical care, the life expectancy of Cubans is equivalent to the United States despite it being a very poor country because they have access to health care. That's a huge achievement," he said about the repressive regime. "They should be congratulated. But you drive around Havana and you see the economy is not working. It looks like it did in the 1950s."

Obama must have been wearing his rose-colored glasses on his Cuban trip.

Cuba is a communist country that was almost wholly supported by the then-USSR, a failed communist regime. When the USSR collapsed financially to become Russia, that left Cuba out in the cold, and its people driving around in 1954 Chevys -- if they drive at all.

This is from the "smartest guy in the room."

But while we're talking communism, remember these stats and let us not forget:

In introducing the Black Book, lead author Stephane Courtois, Director of Research at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique(CNRS) in Paris, offers the following rough breakdown of the numbers of people that communism killed:

USSR -- 20 million

China -- 65 million

Vietnam -- 1 million

North Korea -- 2 million

Cambodia -- 2 million

Eastern Europe -- 1 million

Latin America -- 150,000

Africa -- 1.7 million

Afghanistan -- 1.5 million

Communist movements, parties not in power -- 10,000

You know the liberal media said the same thing about Reagan against Carter in 1980.  Look what happened.

Angry red-diaper baby, bernie Sanders, has his revolution and his army

S. Noble (IndependentSentinel) is reporting that Bernie Sanders has started a political revolution and he is a communist or something very close to it. His ardent and activist supporters include the #People4Sanders communists who hope to get him elected. He is their great hope to finally complete the transformation of our nation.

There is too much in Bernie's background that proves he is a communist so we will only deal briefly with his history with Cuba and Nicaragua in this article.

Bernie Sanders said in 1985 that Castro didn't face rebellion in Cuba because he educated their kids, gave them free healthcare, totally transformed the society.

This was around the time he went to Nicaragua to support the communist Sandanistas Reagan was trying to defeat. He went the Nicaragua to betray Reagan. He was a traitor.

When asked about it during the Univision Democrat debate, he would not retract these positive comments about Cuba and fell back on his condemnation of the evil, imperialist US.

The US is the only non-imperialist Super Power ever to exist.

At that time in history, the US tried to save the world from communism. Unfortunately now we fete communists and pretend they are something else.

Clinton jumped in during the debate, noting that Sanders also said in the same interview that Cuba had undergone "a revolution in terms of values," and stating that if those values include jailing and killing people for expressing political beliefs, "that is not the kind of revolution of values I want to ever see anywhere."

Sanders calls himself a Democrat Socialist so he can get elected. There's no other reason. In truth, socialism must lead to communism eventually. Lenin told us that.

He wrote a political memoir in 1997 whichthat was published by the radical left-wing Verso Books, according to MSNBC.

Sanders supported "the socialist Sandinista government in Nicaragua" at the same time it was fighting "a proxy war" with America during the Reagan years. The Sandanistas, who were Soviet-funded and Cuban-trained, were and are violent communists, he admitted proudly.

In 1985, he became the highest-ranking American official to visit Nicaragua at the time, and met with President Daniel Ortega. In his book, he called the trip "profoundly emotional" and praised Ortega. Burlington, where Sanders was mayor, and Managua, Nicaragua’s capital, became sister cities.

Ortega brutally suppressed dissent and horribly mistreated indigenous Nicaraguans. He rejected all democracy. Nonetheless, Sanders thought Managua’s Marxist-Leninist clique had much to teach Burlington:

"Vermont could set an example to the rest of the nation similar to the type of example Nicaragua is setting for the rest of Latin America."

Sanders stole his beliefs as written in his memoir from Ortega's propaganda playbook:

"Is [the Sandinistas’] crime that they have built new health clinics, schools, and distributed land to the peasants? Is their crime that they have given equal rights to women? Or that they are moving forward to wipe out illiteracy? No, their crime in Mr. Reagan’s eyes and the eyes of the corporations and billionaires that determine American foreign policy is that they have refused to be a puppet and banana republic to American corporate interests."

Engaging in bizarre conspiracy theories was the norm for Bernie:

Ronald Reagan was a Manchurian president created by millionaires who run corporations according to Bernie: "Some millionaires in California said ‘Ron, we want you to work for us. We want you to become governor.’ They sat around a table. A dozen millionaires. They made him governor. And then they made him president. And he did his job effectively for those corporations.")

In 1985, Ortega rounded up the regime critics and threw them in prison. He shuttered opposition newspapers and magazines. Bernie refused to condemn any of it but he did condemn Reagan.

Read more about it at the Daily Beast.

Sanders went on to enjoy a "romantic honeymoon" in the USSR with his wife, Jane, when they married in 1988 according to his memoir. The trip was "to Yaroslavl, in the then-Soviet Union. The trip was an official delegation from Burlington to cement the two cities’ sister-city relationship."

As mayor of Burlington, Sanders praised the regimes of Nicaragua and Cuba -- claiming bread lines were a sign of economic health and press censorship was necessary in wartime.

Sanders who pretends he doesn't have a foreign policy objective turned Burlington into a fantasy foreign-policy camp. In his 1997 memoir, Outsider in the House, he asked, "how many cities of 40,000 [like Burlington] have a foreign policy? Well, we did."

Sanders also visited Cuba with his wife in 1989 and hoped to meet with Fidel Castro, but it didn’t work out. Instead, Sanders met with Havana’s mayor and other unnamed officials.

Sanders is a communist and last night's attack on the Trump rally was spearheaded by communists and socialists who support him.

Last October, Bernie praised China's maternity policy, knowing that they forcibly abort babies of mother's who have more than one baby, which has now been extended to two babies. It's not that Bernie is an idiot or a fool, it's that he's a communist who shares their values.

The scenario the Left hopes to see is this:

Donald Trump probably can't win in a general election but he will be the candidate. What happened to him last night in Chicago is only the beginning. He will be destroyed by November if not already, Hillary will win, Bernie will be an acceptable communist and elder statesman, and the US will move further into the muck of Socialism with Obama's agenda firmly and permanently enshrined in our government.

Bernie's people are a united army. Trump called Bernie a communist Saturday and blamed Bernie's followers for the riot/protest in Chicago. He was mostly correct.

The Founding Fathers and Democracy

Img58.jpg

Brian Phillips (CapitalismMagazine) says Democracy means unlimited majority rule. The majority may do as it pleases simply because it is the majority. Under democracy the individual is subservient to the majority, that is, the collective. Democracy is a form of collectivism.

Collectivism holds that individuals exist only as a member of a group -- whether a race, an economic class, or the State. Individuals per se do not possess rights, but only in their capacity as a member of a group. Under democracy an individual possesses rights only when he is a member of the majority. Even then those rights are limited and continually threatened, because if the individual finds himself in the minority on any issue, he is required to follow the dictates of the majority. He may be on the winning side on a vote regarding light rail, but be on the losing side on a vote regarding school bonds.

For the most part, the Founders were opposed to democracy. James Madison, for example, wrote "There is no maxim, in my opinion, which is more liable to be misapplied, and which, therefore, more needs elucidation, than the current one, that the interest of the majority is the political standard of right and wrong." Thomas Jefferson stated that "a democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine." And perhaps my favorite is a quote often attributed to Benjamin Franklin: "Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!"

The Founders were avid students of history. They studied all forms of government -- monarchies, parliamentary systems, democracies, and more. They sought to erect a system that prevented a tyranny of one -- such as monarchy -- as well as a tyranny of many -- such as democracy. The Founders recognized the primacy of the individual and sought to protect his rights.

The Founders established a constitutional republic for this purpose. They limited and enumerated the powers of the federal government, securing for the individual the freedom to act as he judges best. This is precisely what democracy prevents.

Democracy forces you to act in accordance with the demands of the "will of the people," regardless of your own judgment. Democracy compels you to surrender your liberty and your property for the "general welfare." Democracy forces you to sacrifice your rights.

The Founding Fathers understood this. It is time that contemporary Americans did as well.

Election fog

Image909.jpg

David Horowitz (FrontPage) says it is a conventional wisdom of the 2016 election to pair Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders as "outsiders" and "populists," as though they were parallel rebels against a common political "establishment." There is truth in the observation, but it is a superficial one that obscures the most important choice that voters will be making in this election season. The choice that even many conservatives seem to be missing is this: Bernie Sanders is a radical reactionary who is at war with America's political and economic system, while Trump for all his flaws is a product of that system and is motivated by a desire to defend it -- to "make America great again," as he is constantly reminding us.

You will never hear those words coming out of Sanders' mouth, as he and his followers believe the America that Trump thinks was great once, is in fact a racist, sexist, warmongering oppressor. And that is all the difference in the world. Trump may be sloppy with the facts, careless in his formulations and undisciplined in his personal attacks, but he is not -- as some intellectuals on the right seem to think -- out of his mind. Nor will he, if elected president, deport 11 or 20 million illegals, or bar Muslims from entering the United States, but he will build the wall and secure our borders, and he will develop a vetting system for Muslims from the terrorist Middle East where today there is none.

Bernie Sanders is a lifelong member of the anti-American Left who supported the Communist enemy during the Cold War. He is not a democratic socialist (a contradiction in terms) whose model is Denmark. He is a pro-Castro, pro-Sandinista small "c" communist, who honey-mooned in the Soviet Union when it was still a prison camp and has faithfully supported every communist cause embraced by his radical comrades.

To belabor the obvious but often overlooked: Socialism is theft. To redistribute incomes that have been rightfully earned requires using government coercion to take away those rights. In America that would amount to the coercion of tens of millions of individuals whom the government would arbitrarily declare "rich." This is Sanders' primary domestic agenda -- a 19 trillion dollar bucket list which ignores the fact that $20 trillion has already been squandered on the "War on Poverty" with no noticeable positive result. That is because the poverty problem in America is not economic but cultural. With the exception of those years when job-killing progressives are in power, opportunities abound in this country for those able and willing to take advantage of them.

Just as progressives view the Affordable Care Act as a stepping stone on the way to a "single payer" state monopoly of health care, so socialism for them is only a stepping stone on the way to communism. The difference between socialism and communism is only the speed with which markets and individual liberties are destroyed. For examples of the devastation that socialist politicians and their "solutions" inflict, one need only look to Greece and Detroit or Cuba and Baltimore. These are the domestic futures that Sanders proposes.

America has defended freedom and enforced the peace through three world conflicts, but in Sander's eyes America is actually the source of global conflagrations. His prescription for a world in chaos that is the direct consequence of Obama's appeasements and retreats is more of the same. "America Come Home" was the slogan of the 1972 McGovern campaign and has been the familiar theme of the Democrats ever since. A vote for Sanders would be adding a signature to the suicide pact, which is the Left's cherished wish for this country. 

Trump showed himself recklessly ill-informed on the causes of the Iraq War during the South Carolina debate. George Bush did not lie to lead us into war -- that is, in fact, a Democrat lie. The Iraq War was about Saddam's defiance of a UN Security Council ultimatum to disclose and destroy his Weapons of Mass Destruction. Contrary to an enormously destructive political myth, the WMDs did exist -- including 2250 Sarin-gas-filled-rockets and chemical weapons in storage tanks that Saddam buried and are now in the possession of ISIS. Finally, the destabilization of Iraq and the Middle East are entirely a consequence of Obama's policies not George Bush's as Trump falsely maintained. Trump's misreading of the Iraq War is a serious political fault. But it is the result of ignorance rather than malice against his country, which is what motivates the Left. Whatever one thinks of Trump, he is justly hated by the Sanders radicals, who understand that his intentions make him their nemesis not their twin.

Mommas, don't let your babies grow up to be socialists

Laura Rambeau Lee (Politichicks) says if it wasn't obvious before, the Iowa caucuses should alarm Americans as we saw avowed socialist Bernie Sanders (D-VT) in a virtual tie with heir apparent Hillary Clinton on the Democrat ticket. How have we as a nation gotten so off track from our founding principles and beliefs? Post-caucus reports revealed 84% of millennials voted for Sanders. They support him because of his promises of free medical care, free college, free everything… and the "greedy billionaires" will be forced to pay their "fair share" to pay for it all. These young adults have been indoctrinated with this progressive agenda since kindergarten. They have no idea what socialism means.

Readers who regularly listen to Rush Limbaugh or Mark Levin hear them comment on the liberal indoctrination in our colleges and universities. They are not exaggerating. Returning to college to complete my bachelor's degree after many years opened my eyes to the indoctrination and the methodology used. Our youth are taught the American Dream is a myth and is impossible for them to achieve. They are taught the earth has been destroyed and our days are numbered. No wonder they wish to live out their lives without having to be responsible and productive adults. They do not believe they have any future.

We need to challenge the emotional appeal of the progressives for a big government solution to all of our problems. We should explain Bernie Sander's utopian vision of free stuff for all means collecting more taxes from everyone, not just the wealthy. Explain that the money they earn from their own labor should be theirs to keep and not redistributed to others based on emotional appeals to social, environmental or economic justice. Introduce them to the conservative values that have made our country the greatest country in the history of humankind.

Recently Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb) was questioned on MSNBC about how he defined conservatism. His succinct definition in the video below should be shown in every school room and every home to remind us, and explain to our children, what has made America so exceptional. It is a great start to what should be a continuing discussion and dialogue with our children and young adults. We cannot trust and leave it to the public school system to teach them the values and founding concepts of our great country. They need to hear it from us.

when you have Karl Marx as the top economic study at the Universities, it is no wonder how someone as old and decayed as Bernie Sanders is promoted as the DNC candidate

Up is down, down is up. We need a new Renaissance for Capitalism.
