911 anniversary 2018

President Trump at Flight 93 Memorial:

Thanks to A.F. Branco at Comically Incorrect  for his great cartoon

A piece of America’s heart is buried on these grounds, but in its place has grown a new resolve to live our lives with the same grace and courage as the heroes of Flight 93. This field is now a monument to American defiance. This memorial is now a message to the world: America will never, ever submit to tyranny.

Since September 11th, nearly 5.5 million young Americans have enlisted in the United States Armed Forces. Nearly 7,000 service members have died facing down the menace of radical Islamic terrorism.

Today we also think of the more than 200,000 service members now serving overseas, and we think of every citizen who protects our nation at home, including our state, local, and federal law enforcement. These are great Americans. These are great heroes. We honor and thank them all.

As commander-in-chief, I will always do everything in my power to prevent terrorists from striking American soil.

Where Are We 17 Years Later?

Benghazi Attack 9-11 2012

Rush Limbaugh:

I think this is a good thing to revisit, because I don’t think people remember this.

Well, let me tell you about that. You mentioned 9/11 Benghazi. I think this is a good thing to revisit, because I don’t think people remember this. On that day… Let me get my embassies straight. I think it was our embassy in Cairo or it might have been somewhere in Libya. Anyway, one of our embassies apologized, issued an apology in the afternoon on September 11th, whatever the year was. We’re talking about Benghazi, 2012. I remember hearing this and I said, “Apology for what? What are we apologizing for now?”

It turned out that that apology had been orchestrated from the State Department in Washington as an advance move to blame this video that Obama and Hillary would later rely on as the reason why the Benghazi attack happened. We apologized before anything happened! Somebody goofed and released the official apology before the terrorists had taken any action. So it looked like we were apologizing for our existence. We were apologizing for our policies, apologizing for this and that.

It didn’t make any sense whatsoever. Later in the day and night, Benghazi happened, and we were told that it was spontaneous and it was because of a video that had been circulating on YouTube and elsewhere in the Middle East. It was inciting Islamists to riot and the apology was cited and so forth. The whole thing was a scam because it was known that Benghazi was going to happen, because it was a terror attack that was planned. It was known somewhat in advance. Of course, you know the story of Benghazi.

We didn’t do anything to help the people fighting in the middle of it to get ’em out or any of that because we didn’t want to provoke and we didn’t want to launch airplanes and missiles from the nearest base in Italy, if I’m recalling this right. I may have some of the few details wrong here, but overall this was the prelude to what happened at Benghazi on 9/11/12, and that apology from our State Department… I think it was Cairo, but it might have been from our installation… I don’t think we even had one in Libya. Anyway, I’m long. I gotta take a break. But I’ll figure this out.

Yeah, it was the embassy in Cairo, the State Department embassy. Our embassy issued this apology. It was like three o’clock in the afternoon, and nothing had happened. I said, “Well, it’s not unusual for Obama to apologize for America, but what is this about?” And then fact-checkers protecting Obama later said there really wasn’t an apology; it was just a statement. It was an apology to set up the blaming of the video for what was to happen later at the Benghazi complex.

Don’t Forget the Attack in Benghazi

Mueller Victim Exposes Massive FRAUD

Michael Caputo, Mueller Victim

“Today, I can’t possibly pay the attendant legal costs and live near my aging father, raising my kids where I grew up. Your investigation and others into the allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russia are costing my family a great deal of money – more than $125,000 – and making a visceral impact on my children. Now I must to move back to Washington, New York City, Miami or elsewhere, just so I can make enough money to pay off these legal bills. And I know I have you to thank for that.”
‘Forget about all the death threats against my family. I want to know who cost us so much money, who crushed our kids, who forced us out of our home, all because you lost an election. I want to know because God Damn you to Hell.”

It’s plain to see that the Mueller farce, meant to undermine the Trump agenda and boost Democrats, is ruining lives. The anti-Trump swamp doesn’t care how many innocent lives they destroy, so long as they can get famous, make money, and hurt Trump.

Michael Caputo Attests to What I’ve Told You the Establishment Is Doing

 

Deep State Swamp exposed: Robert Mueller Praise is False Information

Rush Limbaugh

The never-ending praise and accolades for the fairness, the open-mindedness, the nonjudgmentalism, the integrity and the honor of Robert Mueller has been his hallmark that has been his reputation for as long as he’s been in Washington. As either the FBI director, assistant attorney general — he’s served a number of presidents in a number of positions — his reputation is impeccable. And if you ask me, none of it’s true, and none of it is warranted.

To me, this guy, Robert Mueller, personifies actually what is wrong with the Washington establishment, not what is right about it. No more integrity than this guy has. More honor than anybody else. I mean, he’s the personification of Dudley Do-Right. If Robert Mueller were this honorable person — the right choice to get to the bottom of this for the sake of the nation, for the sake of our culture, for the sake of doing the right thing — then he would have shut down this investigation long ago and lectured everybody about the improprieties and dangers involved in all of this.

He would have exposed the conspiracy and the corruption in the FBI that prolonged this, and he would have named names. He would have properly looked into real collusion between Fusion GPS, the Hillary Clinton campaign, the Democrat National Committee and the Russians and Christopher Steele. He would have exposed it! He would have been the one to tell us that the Steele dossier was fake, phony, and fraudulent. He would have been the one to tell us that the Steele dossier had been illegally used to get a FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page and whoever else that the Obama team wanted to spy on.

He would have been the one to expose all of this, if he were the guy we’ve been told that he is. But he’s obviously not. He’s right in there with the rest of these partisan buffoons helping to perpetuate this crock, helping to perpetuate this injustice. And if this is the guy… If this is the guy we’re all told, “Trust it, Rush! Trust Mueller. He’s the guy to get to the bottom of this. He’ll find out what’s been going on. He’s got no partisan chip in his bones. Yeah, he’s a registered Republican, but that doesn’t matter.”

And then of course we find out that in the Whitey Bulger case, four people — innocent people — spent 30 years in jail when he knew they didn’t do it. Two of them died in jail! And one of the reasons was so he could protect the identity of a confidential informant. There isn’t any integrity here, and there isn’t any honor, and it doesn’t appear there’s any justice going on. So now we see that Rudy says that Mueller’s team shouts down the idea of written interviews with Trump.

And what we learned, after studying it over the weekend, was that the stuff that had been redacted was simply to protect the incompetent and perhaps biased procedures that they had engaged in at the FBI and the DOJ throughout this entire investigation. There was nothing national security related. It had all been redacted simply to cover up what Strzok and Page had been doing. It had been redacted to cover-up that Comey had been lying to people.

Comey did tell people that Flynn did not lie. Comey did tell people that he had talked to interviewees, people who talked to Flynn and nobody that interviewed Flynn thought that he had lied and yet here he’s pled guilty to lying? Now, the point that I made is Trump enjoys, I think, the political position of victim. He likes being able to tweet out all these things that Rosenstein and Mueller and the rest of these people are doing. Trump has the constitutional authority to unredact anything.

This stuff could have been ordered unredacted months ago. All Trump has to do is pick up the phone and call Rosenstein and order it done. The president can declassify anything. But he hasn’t. He has instead enjoyed tweeting about how unfair it is and about how ridiculous it is and how somebody needs to do something. Because I think Trump’s lawyers have got him convinced that if he did that, that he would be guilty of obstructing justice — and he’s dead wrong, and they’re dead wrong.

Constitution Facts

If the Congress — the elected representatives of the people who created the DOJ! The DOJ’s not in the Constitution. Congress creates the DOJ. They have oversight. If they command to see something, Trump can make them reveal it, and that’s not obstructing justice. But Trump’s lawyers are scared to death that any move — firing Mueller, unredacting this stuff, declassifying — would be seen as obstructing justice, obstructing the investigation and that Trump would be hurt politically.

I think it’s the exact opposite.

I think people would dance in the streets if Trump ordered these people to come clean with what they don’t have and end this.

Rush Limbaugh

It’s Time to Reassert the Power of the Presidency Over Bob Mueller

No special counsel has anywhere near the power of the president of the United States, in terms of the Constitution or any other structure. And neither does the deputy attorney general or the attorney general. The president is the executive branch, and everybody there serves at his pleasure.

But these people are setting it up that if they succeed in getting rid of Trump, then every president thereafter is going to be seen in terms of legal precedent subordinate to, in this case the intelligence community and the DOJ because they’re the ones running this show and acting like the president is beneath them, underneath them, however in the power structure of things.

The Constitution is being reconfigured here, and depending on how this ends, it is going to have precedent setting aspects for the office of the presidency as well.

Abuse of Power:

Leftist Hysteria  vs. Trump Agenda to Drain the Swamp

President Trump tweeted something about “flipping ought to be illegal.” This has sent the Left into meltdown once again. President Trump is not even allowed to be human. They could never hold up under the kind of hatred and pressure that Trump deals with on a daily basis. Actually, lying under oath is illegal. What Mueller is doing, intimidating and terrorizing people and their families ought to be illegal.  If this were done to Obama sycophants, the media wouldn’t stand for it. ~C.D.

 

He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him. ~Proverbs 26:24

Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein. Proverbs 26:27

The Left is  Unfeeling

Rush Limbaugh

But this ignores something that is very important. Donald Trump’s a human being like all of us are. And he’s not superhuman. He’s not inhuman. He’s not immune from the kind of things that people who turn on him do. He’s not immune to feeling anger or sorrow or whatever emotion he has over it. My point is, here’s Trump flipping that [ought] to be illegal.

CNN is devoting a full segment to how that statement proves that Donald Trump is insane, not mentally balanced, dangerous, really underqualified, really has no business being in the White House, has no business being president of the United States, who says things like that? Who says flipping ought to be outlawed?

And of course the Never Trumpers on our side are having the same. They need the vapors. “Oh, my God. Look at the manners, so unsophisticated, and, oh, my God. Look at the lack of character.” But is Donald Trump that unqualified? Let’s take a look, folks.

For the kingdom of the devil must shake, and they which belong to it must needs be stirred up unto repentance, or the devil will grasp them with his everlasting chains, and they be stirred up to anger, and perish;

For behold, at that day shall he rage in the hearts of the children of men, and stir them up to anger against that which is good. 2 Nephi 28:19,20

There is a political party in this country, there is a mainstream media in this country, and there is an entire Washington establishment consisting of a whole lot of people who are cheering for the following.

  • They are cheering for a former secretary of state who mishandled virtually every electronic communication that passed through her office for four years.
  • They are cheering for Hillary Clinton to get away with the serial crimes that she committed throughout the 2016 presidential campaign.
  • They are cheering a former secretary of state, a former first lady to get away with countless illegalities, including a massive pay-for-play scheme revolving around her foundation.
  • They are cheering for a woman who was selling access, policy access to her administration before she was even elected.
  • They are cheering the kind of financial illegalities that Donald Trump cannot even approach having committed.
  • In addition, they are cheering a senator who lied about her heritage for career advancement.
  • This would be Fauxcahontas Warren.
  • They are openly cheering a senator who lied about her heritage for career advancement and who openly admits she doesn’t care that an American woman was murdered by an illegal immigrant. They are cheering that woman.
  • The Democrat Party, the Drive-By Media, the Washington establishment are cheering a rogue special counsel operating way beyond constitutional limits with a team of conflicted partisan hacks who are on a mission to overturn a duly constituted election! There is a political party, the mainstream media and the Washington establishment — which is really all the same — who are cheering the concept of a fourth super branch of government called the special counsel, who sits in daily judgment of the president of the United States.
  • They are cheering an arrangement which does not exist in the U.S. Constitution.
  • They are cheering former FBI and Department of Justice officials who serially abused power in an effort to choose the president of the United States. That would be Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, McCabe, Comey; you fill out the names.
  • They are cheering a teenage Camera Hogg that does a remarkably accurate portrayal of a vulgar fascist when he’s on television.
  • And they are cheering a stunningly ignorant self-proclaimed socialist Millennial said to represent the future of the Democrat Party.
  • They are against, depressed by:
  • These same people who are cheering all of that are depressed by, are threatened by, and wish it wasn’t happening,
  • a robust economy,
  • a strong military,
  • adherence to the rule of law,
  • the reestablishment of America preeminent in trade around the world,
  • an America establishing secure borders to prevent the wanton murder of innocent American citizens by illegal immigrant gang members.

Thanks to A.F. Branco at Legal Insurrection.com for his great cartoons

The rising standard of living of millions of Americans, the newfound job and career opportunities for millions of Americans, the lowest historical unemployment rate among African-Americans, one of their big constituent groups, they’re not interested in how well they’re doing. They want to cover that up. They want to bide it.

The big picture is that the man who is responsible for an American rebirth, his administration responsible for a growing economy that all of these other experts said was not possible and that Trump should be really, really, really careful about promising a 3% growth rate, that’s misleading people, that’s setting ’em up for being disappointed, he shouldn’t do this, while we’re at 4.1% economic growth.

So, again, it’s like redefining smart. Who is it that’s really unqualified here? So Donald Trump sits up there and says, “I think we maybe need to have a law against flippers,” and that is added to the list of other things Trump says and does that convinces all these people that he’s got to be sent packing.

Now, I’m sorry. That’s not how the Constitution works. Trump was duly elected, he’s the president, he gets to nominate, Senate gets to advise, consent, confirm, and so forth. But the Democrats are writing a brand-new Constitution each and every day. And the parts they don’t want to adhere to, they’re forgetting, they’re erasing it, and they’re rewriting, such as installing Mueller as a permanent super branch, fourth branch that somehow is justified in daily oversight of Donald Trump. And they’re doing everything they can in their reporting to justify all this is necessary.

But what’s driving all of this is not complicated, and it isn’t minutia. What’s driving all of this is that the votes of 60 million people are seen to not count. They are seen now as irrelevant, and they are seen as forgettable. You and the 60 million others that voted for Trump, your votes don’t count because of the guy you voted for. And so they’re not gonna stop until they exhaust every opportunity at their disposal to get rid of Donald Trump.

Leftists are Violating the Law

For behold, they do study at this time that they may destroy the liberty of thy people. ~Alma 8:17

  • It is they who are violating the law.
  •  It is they who are abandoning and ignoring the Constitution.
  •  It is they who are looking at the all of the robust improvements, economic recovery, and sticking their noses in the air over it and saying it doesn’t matter.
  • They’re saying you don’t matter.
  • They’re saying that Mollie Tibbetts doesn’t matter. She’s just a girl in Iowa. She doesn’t matter. You don’t matter, I don’t, and nobody but them or they matter.

But it’s a full-fledged, daily onslaught from every one of these media outlets. And it’s never ending. It is made up of the most vile, made-up, irresponsible stuff, rooted in one thing: Donald Trump’s not qualified. Donald Trump had no business winning. They can’t explain how he won, so they’re trying to convince people he cheated. They don’t have any evidence for any of the allegations they’ve made. They never will find any evidence for it.

So it boils down to the fact they don’t want Trump in the White House, they don’t like that Trump won, and since that’s the case, they should have the right to get rid of him. And all of you should just stand aside and watch it happen, or support it. I think that’s what people need to be reminded of, rather than getting caught up in all of the little allegations made against Trump, such as his comments about thinking that we need to get rid of flippers

Democratic Party Agenda: ‘Answer is Socialism’

 

Now, again, if this was just five random people picked off a college campus, I wouldn’t even be wasting my time with this. These people discussed here are the people determining the political agenda of the American left or the Democrat Party. They are funding all of these think tanks and nonprofits that are pushing this whole idea of apocalypse, and they are single-handedly creating this attitude of pessimistic defeatism in young people.

And they are succeeding in creating the notion that human beings, in their natural existence, are deeply flawed, and the only redeeming aspect is socialism. And yet these people want no part of the socialism. That’s for everybody else. They want to be able to escape all of it. While they’re probably writing checks to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and trying to help Kamala Harris get elected and do whatever damage she can do, they’re trying to figure out a way to get to Mars to get away from all of this that they are single-handedly creating.

These are the people that invest in CNN. These are the people that tell MSNBC what to do. These are the people determining who is fit and unfit to post on Facebook and Twitter. This is truly, truly — I mean, it’s hilarious, and it’s funny and all of this, but I am just — I shouldn’t be surprised. I’m surprised.

I’m surprised people who are otherwise thought to be this wise can believe such absolute drivel. They have to have gotten it from somewhere. They’ve had to have been taught it from somewhere when they were younger and now they’re teaching it.

You know, I remember when the hip thing to do was to make fun of those crazy survivalists, and look what these guys have become.  These guys have become the survivalists!

These People Hate God

You know, I found a way, I thought of a way to make these guys change their minds and talk them out of it.  You know what it is? Say, “You know what?  I agree with you guys!  In fact, what you guys think is gonna happen is written about in the Bible.  It’s right there in Revelation.”

They would abandon this because they don’t want anything to do with religion, nothing to do with Christianity. Nothing whatsoever! You tell them that everything they believe is in the Bible and it’s right there in Revelation, and you read it to ’em? They’ll go find some other way to explain what they think. Oh, yeah, it’s incumbent. You gotta hate God. You gotta hate religion. “It’s so simple-minded. It’s so beneath these elites.” (sigh)  You know, most of these fat cat liberals are just hoping they’re the ones that the last of the socialists don’t kill.  But, I mean, these are the people writing and producing and funding all these television shows and movies that depict all of this.

Reality Check: Upward Mobility All Over the World

The irony here is that by every effective measure, life on earth for most humans has never been better. Worldwide poverty is at an all-time low, folks. Upward mobility all over the world. You can find pockets where these things are not true. But it’s undeniable. It’s been written about in several places. Life, human life is getting better. Life expectancy is expanding. Health care and health applications are getting better.

Life on earth has never been better than it is today. It’s gonna be better tomorrow than it was today. It’s gonna be better next year. But these people don’t believe this. They’re out of the Paul Ehrlich school, the guy that wrote back in the 1970s that by this time there wouldn’t be any humanity because overpopulation would have destroyed everything. And this guy is still a believed god to these people.

 

Tech Futurist Invited to Speak to Tech Gurus

So this story that I read that ran in the U.K. Guardian after originally running at some place called The Medium by Douglas Rushkoff, who’s a professor and a futurist, the headline: “How tech’s richest plan to save themselves after the apocalypse.” You know, that headline right there tells you a heck of a lot. The piece starts out this way.

“Last year, I got invited to a super-deluxe private resort to deliver a keynote speech to what I assumed would be a hundred or so investment bankers. It was by far the largest fee I had ever been offered for a talk – about half my annual professor’s salary – all to deliver some insight on the subject of ‘the future of technology.’

Crackpot Theory about Dystopian Future

The mental gymnastics required to think this kind of rotgut depends on one assumption. That assumption is that humans suck. So we either have to change humans or we have to get away from them forever. And that’s what these five guys interviewing this futurist wanted to know how to do.

These are the things of greatest concern to five super wealthy hedge fund tech guys paying a journalist a ton of money to come out and answer their questions. Which region of the planet will be less affected by the coming climate apocalypse, New Zealand or Alaska? They wanted to know where they should make plans to move once global warming destroys most everything. This is serious, folks. I know I’m a naturally funny guy. I’m not trying to be funny.

Next question: Is Google really building a home for the human brain of a man named Ray Kurzweil so that he will actually never die and we will always have access to his intelligence?

“The CEO of a brokerage house explained that he had nearly completed building his own underground bunker system and asked: ‘How do I maintain authority over my security force after,” this climate collapse? His concern was, okay, he’s got a bunker, he’s gonna put his family in there and he’s gonna have a security force. He wanted to know how he maintains authority over them. In abject panic with every man out for himself, how does he maintain the boss relationship? And they wanted to know how are they gonna pay these servants if there isn’t any money? Because they all think a full-fledged economic collapse is coming, along with the climate collapse that’s gonna cause the end of the earth. And they’re serious!

And they refer to this as The Event, capital T, capital E. It was their euphemism for the environmental collapse, the social unrest, the nuclear explosion, the unstoppable virus, or the Mr. Robot hack that takes everything down. In other words, these five guys were dead serious wanting answers to what they should do when humanity destroys the earth.

These guys are obviously crackpots! They are obviously wackos. They obviously believe this stuff, and they are among the wealthiest people in the world. They are eccentrically wealthy. And they invest in tech companies, and they direct tech companies in how software is written and so forth. This is not just a bunch of Looney Toon leftists on campus that believe this stuff. But hang on. It gets even better.

That single question occupied them for an hour, The Event, the end of the earth brought on by humanity. These guys discussed for an hour not the likelihood, but the guarantee that humanity, being human is going to destroy the earth.

Internet Censorship of Conservatives is Like Censorship under Stalin

Who’s Always Trying to Silence Their Critics?

Rush Limbaugh

Go through history and look at the people who have sought to silence their critics, and you’ll find a specific type of leader.

You go through history, folks — it’s all I’m asking you to do — you start reviewing history, go through history and look at the people who have sought to silence their critics, and you’ll find a specific type of leader. And it’s not a leader that believes in constitutional republics or elected democracies in any shape, manner, or form. And that’s who the Democrat Party today is becoming. They are transforming into — you know, people call it fascist. They’re not fascist. This is more Stalinist, the way the social justice warriors and the snowflakes on campus are behaving and the people in Philadelphia attacking Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens.

RUSH: On this subject of banning websites and individuals from Twitter and Facebook. Take a look at who’s behind it, who’s urging this. You know, this is something that doesn’t often get mentioned. What we hear is that somebody somewhere has decided, in a fit of morality and justice, that certain sites are dangerous and must be limited in their distribution capabilities. And our social media companies must not participate in the wide distribution of such hate-filled, dangerous rhetoric.

Who is urging this to happen? That is to me as much of the story as the actual banning or limiting or what have you. And if you take a look at who’s suggesting this, it’s elected officials, Democrats in the House, Democrats in the Senate, and if you listen closely, you’ll hear people on CNN suggest that some of these sites should be banned from social media.

My Questions on Jesus and Charity

Rush Limbaugh

Jesus-question-charityRUSH:  Ladies and gentlemen, I have a question, maybe a couple of questions here, and I ask these questions simply because I would like the answers.  And these questions derive from what I have heard on television today during our obscene profit time-outs here. I very rarely do this, but I turned the audio up, I actually listened, and I’ve caught a couple of guests on Fox and they’ve been asked, “Are you aware that people like Rush Limbaugh are calling the pope Marxist?”

“Oh, yeah, yeah, we’re aware of that, and the pope is clearly aware of it, too, but like the pope said on the plane yesterday, he’s not a leftist.  It’s just a misinterpretation.”  And this one guest said, “There’s nothing liberal about the pope. He’s just a good Catholic.” He started rattling off charity and concern and all these other things that define Christianity and said that’s all the pope is.

Okay, so I have a question, because this seems to be a major point of contention.  I have long maintained that whenever it happened in our welfare state, and we could probably find this with enough deep research.  When welfare became or started to become categorized as charity is when liberalism began to be attractive to churches.  Churches quite naturally are big on charity both as recipients for distribution and donors.  They do both sides.

So along comes this pope now and his not apologists, but the people translating for him or explaining, interpreting, “Oh, no, no, no, this ideological, pope is not liberal, no, no, no, no, no.  Don’t be so silly.  Don’t be so foolish.  Don’t be so small-minded.  He’s simply a Catholic, simply Christian, this is what Christians and Catholics do.”  And then, “It’s what Jesus did, simply what Jesus did.”  So my question is this.  I need some legitimate help on this.  I know that Jesus preached charity.  Did Jesus tell people to give their money to the Romans so that the Romans could then distribute it?

In other words, did Jesus tell people to give their money to whatever governing entity there was, or entities there were at the time, or did he preach charity as an individual thing?  In other words, was Jesus a big-government charitable advocate?  It seems to me that it might have been the opposite, that Jesus had some problems with governments.

These are just open-ended questions to which I’m asking if people have the answer.

These are not rhetorical questions.

welfare-government-charity-madisonWell, I don’t think there’s anything offensive about these questions.  One, I’m trying to understand, because it’s come up today.  One of the undeniable truths in our culture is that the modern day Democrat Party does not like religion.  They don’t like Christianity.  That’s not even arguable.  (interruption)  Well, certain big government didn’t like Jesus, but my point is when it comes to chair, the pope seems to be advocating that governments need to do all of these big things, and our interpreters on TV are saying, “Yep, that’s what Jesus did.”

Is that right?  I am not a theologian.  I have never used this program to preach or proselytize.  As you well know, I don’t go into any of these arguments. Faith is a deeply personal, private thing. That’s why I don’t even condone arguments about it on this program, so I’m just asking here.  (interruption)  No, I’m not asking if… (interruption)  When Jesus told people to be charitable, was he telling them to pay higher taxes and let the Romans take care of it?  (interruption)  He wasn’t, right?  The Romans ran the show. 

I mean, the Romans were the government then.  They were the federal government.  There might have been some local pretenders and so forth, but that’s all I’m asking.  He said render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s, but he also then had a qualifier after that which made it clear that Caesar was not entitled to everything.  I mean, you can interpret it, “Yeah, pay your fair tax and get the hell out of Dodge.”  But this is why I’m asking the question, because it’s being interpreted today.  The left — I find this fascinating.  The left, which does not hold any really great love for the Catholic Church or organized religion at all is now all of a sudden trying to portray themselves as Christ-like. 

And it’s all in the name of big government, all in the name of trying to portray now what the Democrat Party’s doing, the American left is doing as Christ-like, taking advantage of the visit of the pope in order to create that impression with people.

Socialism Kills Life Itself

We keep hearing that the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh at the Supreme Court’s gonna result in people dying. Terry McAuliffe yesterday, governor of Virginia, said “millions will die.” Nancy Pelosi said it is “the end of civilization as we know it.” I asked Vice President Pence yesterday… He was on in the second segment, the first hour.

I said, “What is your timeline for ending civilization, and just how many millions of deaths are you calculating and what’s your timeline for that?” He, of course, chuckled, knowing the absolute stupidity and deranged, delusional nature of such comments — and yet the left keeps making these comments. “People are gonna die! Millions of people are gonna die! We’re gonna have massive civilizational collapse because…” They’ve been doing this for 30 years, and I’ll tell you what’s happening. It’s starting to fall on deaf ears.

You can’t tell people for 30 years that conservatives rising to power is going to end life on earth and be believed if life continues on earth. They have been shouting these dire warnings for 30 years, and they never happen, and I think people have become immune. But let me address this directly. Leftists say that people are gonna die because of Kavanaugh.

How many have died because of Republican Policies?

  • How many have died because of Neil Gorsuch being confirmed to be on the Supreme Court and now having decided some cases? Has anybody seen any reports of death attributable to Neil Gorsuch being on the Supreme Court?
  • How many people have died since tax reform was signed into law? How many people have perished and on the death certificate it says, “Killed Due to Trump Tax Reform Act”? How many people have died since we repealed the Obamacare personal mandate? They told us people were gonna die if we did away with the mandate, the mandate requiring people to have health insurance. How many people have died because of that?

None.

  • How many people have died since net neutrality was erased?How many people have died since net neutrality was ended?

Answer: zero.

  • How many people have died since Donald Trump called out North Korea? How many people have died since Donald Trump had the summit with Kim Jong-un in North Korea?

 Zip, zero, nada.

How many people have died from Trump being tough on the G7 or any other globalist organization and meeting? How many deaths, how many people have died since Kavanaugh was nominated a couple days ago? How many injuries? How many deaths?

This is what they’re claiming is gonna happen. Meanwhile, while there are no deaths associated with conservative policies such as nominating and confirming Gorsuch, passing tax reform, getting rid of the Obamacare mandate, wiping out net neutrality, having an arrangement with North Korea… There aren’t any deaths associated with any of those policies.

However, how many deaths are associated every year with abortion? (Gasp!) Sorry. How many deaths are associated every year with women’s reproductive freedom?

The answer: 1.3 million.

It’s 1.3 million.

People die, literally die when liberal policies are implemented and maintained.

Illegal immigration.

How many innocent people have died at the hands of criminal illegal immigrants wandering free in our country? The best number we have is 4,380 Americans murdered annually by illegal aliens.

Roughly 22,000 Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens since September 11th, 2011.

How many people have died from leftist immigration policies, open borders? In 2016, more than 63,000 drug overdose deaths in the United States. How many of those deaths due to Democrat open-border policies — and, I should say, Republican.

Socialism Kills

There are many mainstream Republicans who favor open borders as well. So the point is, liberalism kills. Socialism kills. How many people are dying in Venezuela? How many people are dying in Cuba? How many people are dying in North Vietnam? How many people are dying in ChiCom China?

Wherever you find liberalism, socialism, communism, death is a common occurrence.

 

It’s not a common occurrence with conservatism or Republican policy, and yet look at the campaign to defeat Kavanaugh.

“Millions of people will die!”

“Civilization will end as we know it!”

It’s the dawn of an important new day in America. Young readers, grab the reins and join Rush Revere, Liberty the horse, and the whole time-traveling crew in this patriotic historical adventure that takes you on an exciting trip to the  past to see our remarkable nation’s most iconic symbols up close and personal!

1787—that’s where we’re rush, rush, rushing off to next with our enthusiastic young friends in the Time-Traveling Crew (but not before causing a major security incident at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.!)

A funny case of mistaken identity and a wild chase through the busy streets of Philadelphia will ledad us to the famously introverted Father of our constitution, James Madison and the heated secret debates over the Constitution and the Bill  of Rights. Fast-forward a few years, and we’ll help his brave wife, Dolly, risk her life to save an important portrait from the White House as the British set Washington afire!

What greater symbol of our exceptional nation’s hard-won freedoms than the Star-Spangled Banner, sewn by American icon Betsy Ross?

Perhaps Francis Scott Key can explain what inspired him to pay tribute to our glorious flag by writing our beautiful national anthem. But watch out for the bombs bursting in air, because when we reach 1814, we’ll be front and center at a major battle to defend our liberty.

Jump back in the saddle with me, Rush Revere, and the Time-Traveling Crew, as my trusty horse, Liberty, takes us on another flying leap through American history into a past teeming with heroes and extraordinary citizens who have so much to teach us about patriotism.

All you need to bring is your curiosity about the birth of our democracy—I’ve got plenty of tricornered hats for everyone!

 

Go back in time to experience fht fight for American freedom firsthand, on the floors of Congress and the battlements of Fort McHenry, and ask:

What do the words of the national anthem really mean?

Who created the first flag of the United States?

What did Dolley Madison rescue when the British burned the Capitol?

Where is the U.S. Constitution kept?

Why was George Mason upset at the Constitutional Convention?

Why was the War of 1812 fought?

How did James Madison become the Father of the Constitution?
