The Slippery Slope of Socialism

Thomas Paine: American Philosopher, & Revolutionary

From 1776 through the formation of The Constitution I helped create America. Now I have returned to help save America. American Patriots must join together, speak out in free and open discussion to fight the “woke” anti-American mob, and further the cause of FREEDOM.

The Democrat party, affectionately revered by older generations, has been hijacked by radical left-wing extremist disciples of Karl Marx (1818-1883) and Vladimir Lenin (1870-1924), gleefully skiing down the slippery slope of socialism with their horde of lemmings close behind. 

Marx, the German philosopher, held that in the capitalist system of production, there was class conflict between the ruling class, the bourgeoisie, who controlled the means of production, and the working class, the proletariat, who sold their labor for wages.

He believed the tensions between the classes would lead to self-destruction and the society would naturally evolve into socialism.  He even argued that the proletariat should organize revolutions to bring about socioeconomic change. 

SIDEBAR:  I’ll be damned.  Doesn’t that sound exactly like today’s DNC ?

Organized political activists pushing Obama’s agenda to “fundamentally transform” America into a socialist nation.  You don’t honestly think Beijing Joe Biden has the mental capacity to formulate such a master plan, do you ?  He can barely read a sentence off the teleprompter without stumbling.  His orders are coming from a puppet-master, his former boss.  I say that with confidence because there are way too many pieces of connective evidence to simply be debunked as coincidental, or even non-existent.  From the assault on so many constitutional amendments, to overwhelming so many systems and institutions with extreme reform demands, to blatantly lying to the American people and not even caring about backlash, to attacks on American values and cultural norms.  All of that is Obama’s modus operandi.  Oh, and to resume all that, it was imperative that the DNC had to regain power and keep it going by “winning” elections – what a coincidence.  They didn’t even need to send him out on the campaign trail.

Everything you see happening today is being orchestrated by Barack Hussein Obama.  I say it all the time, because it just HAS to be true.

Every thread of the current “woke” movement is part of Obama’s web.  It’s ALL connected.

Most people who herald Obama as some kind of Messiah, have no idea what they are hoping for, and how quickly their “utopian” socialist state could morph into full-blown communism.

Many ”political scientists” attribute the roots of Marxism in America to the Frankfurt School, which was founded in Germany during the Weimar Republic (1918-1933), as a school of social theory and critical philosophy. According to Wikipedia, the Frankfurt School was critical of both capitalism and Marxism-Leninism, yet they apparently adopted much of Marxist theory in terms of his “idealist philosophy” that could be enacted by social change.

Lenin, the Russian revolutionary who led the Bolshevik faction of the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party (RSDLP) and rose to became the founding head of Soviet Russia (1917-1922), then the Soviet Union (1922-1924), which became a one-party socialist state governed by the Communist Party.

In 1905 Lenin encouraged the Bolsheviks in armed violent insurrection and advocated continual violent confrontation against the government of Tsar Nicholas II. 

From Wikipedia:  “In September 1917, Lenin published Imperialism, the Highest Stage of Capitalism, which argued that imperialism was a product of monopoly capitalism, as capitalists sought to increase their profits by extending into new territories where wages were lower and raw materials cheaper. He believed that competition and conflict would increase and that war between the imperialist powers would continue until they were overthrown by proletariat revolution and socialism established.”

Less than two months later, Russia was under communist rule.  On November 7, 1917, with Vladimir Lenin leading the way, the Bolsheviks seized power through the “October Revolution” and became the worlds’ first communist government.  The Russian Social Democratic Labour Party didn’t waste any time morphing into the All-Russian Communist Party, renamed as such in 1918.

What is the actual difference between socialism and communism ?  Let’s examine a few definitions.

The Major Forms of Government 

According to Oxford Languages, socialism;

  1. socialism is a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.  And,
  2. in Marxist theory, a transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of communism.

Whereas Merriam Webster defines socialism as,

  1. socialism is any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods.  And,
  2. a: a system of society or group living in which there is no private property

b. a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state.  And,

3. a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.

SIDEBAR:  We can easily see that socialism is a system whereby the government is empowered to control nearly every aspect of societal life, from how goods are produced, to what services are available, to what the people are permitted to acquire.

In contrast, Oxford Languages defines communism as:

A political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs.

Whereas Merriam Webster defines communism as;

  1. a: a system in which goods are owned in common and are available to all as needed

b: a theory advocating elimination of private property

2. capitalized                                                                                                  

a: a doctrine based on revolutionary Marxian socialism and Marxism-Leninism that was the official ideology of the Soviet Union

b: a totalitarian system of government in which a single authoritarian party controls state-owned means of production

c: a final stage of society in Marxist theory in which the state has withered away and economic goods are distributed equitably

d: communist systems collectively

SIDEBAR:  In Marxist theory, communism is the stage that follows socialism, and the socialist state is temporary, as the middle class is absorbed by the bourgeoisie, and the proletariat, effectively establishing the “haves” and the “have nots”.  The bureaucracy enjoys the finer things in life, while the peons survive on the scraps of “equity”.  This is where I’ll jab the “woke” morons who incessantly demand “equity”; you don’t even know what you’re talking about.

For the record, ‘democracy’, according to Oxford Languages, is,

a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.

And as defined by Merriam Webster, democracy is:

  1.  a: government by the people especially:rule of the majority

  b: a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections

In a direct democracy, the people rule by simple majority, and any representative body must enact the policies desired by that majority.

The key to any indirect democracy is free and fair elections whereby the people choose their representatives.  Theoretically, those elected officials are obligated to represent the majority of their constituencies.

SIDEBAR:  It seems like every 5 minutes we hear Democrats shouting “to save our democracy”, as if they are the ones striving to preserve our system of government.  As George Costanza once said, “It’s not a lie if you believe it.”  Maybe someone should remind them that the United States was formed as a constitutional republic.  It should be taught in schools, in lieu of gender studies and critical race theory.  Even John Dewey (see FOOTNOTE 4) advocated for students to learn how to develop practical solutions to real-world problems in preparation for adulthood.

Democratic socialism, as described by Oxford Reference,

In general, a label for any person or group who advocates the pursuit of socialism by democratic means.  Used especially by parliamentary socialists who put parliamentarianism ahead of socialism, and therefore oppose revolutionary action against democratically elected governments.  Less ambiguous than social democracy, which has had, historically, the opposite meanings of (1) factions of Marxism, and (2) groupings on the right of socialist parties.

Merriam Webster calls it “social democracy”, and defines it as,

  1. : a political movement advocating a gradual and peaceful transition from capitalism to socialism by democratic means
  2. : a democratic welfare state that incorporates both capitalist and socialist practices

SIDEBAR:  Where does the Democrat party fit in this “arena” of political ideologies ?

Answer: firmly in democratic socialism, but getting closer to actual socialism.  The means of production are gradually shifting from the private sector to state-control.  Right now we are seeing the shift in energy and agriculture.  Obama has already commandeered the health insurance industry.

Senator Bernie Sanders(I-VT) claims to be a “democratic socialist” and perhaps he is the poster boy of that movement.  Of course he also claims to be politically “Independent”, when in fact, he votes in total loyalty to the Democrat party.  In other words, he’ll go along with anything they pass.

A constitutional republic, as defined by, refers to a form of government, where the head of state and other officials are representatives of the people and which governs in accordance with existing constitutional law.  It is a government of laws not of men.  Since the governing body is elected and their decisions are subject to judicial review the state is named as republican.

It is an indirect democracy whereby the people have no direct power to govern, but elect eligible candidates to represent them temporarily [1], and both the citizens and the governing officials are bound to adhere to the supreme law of the land, the Constitution.  Whether or not those elected officials truly represent the majority of their constituencies is often a subject of debate.

When they fail to uphold their oaths to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States”, it becomes the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”  —  Declaration of Independence

To quote Wikipedia; “In political philosophy, the right of revolution (or right of rebellion) is the right or duty of a people to “alter or abolish” a government that acts against their common interests or threatens the safety of the people without cause. Stated throughout history in one form or another, the belief in this right has been used to justify various revolutions, including the American Revolution, French Revolution,, the Russian Revolution, and the Iranian Revolution.”  [2]

The present state of the union may have entered the realm of tyranny, in that the administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress is ignoring the Constitution on many fronts.  Although the abovementioned clause in the Declaration is clear, it would be a very drastic action for anyone to attempt to overthrow the government, which is itself a federal crime described by Title 18 U.S. Code § 2385 [3], and I’m not advocating it, or recommending anyone try to overwhelm the U.S. military.

Short of that, we are left to wait for the next opportunity to vote out the representatives who have violated their oaths and are actively attacking the Constitution.  That opportunity is now just 55 days away (as of the date of publication) as the mid-term elections loom.  However, the presidential administration, which holds enormous power, will remain until at least January 20, 2025, and the President seems to be on a roll in shoving Obama’s anti-American agenda down our collective throats with alarming acceleration and extreme prejudice.  Republicans, or as Obiden recently called them, “Ultra MAGA Republicans”, offend liberals by hurting their feelings.  Democrats, and their Praetorian Guard in the media, offend Republicans by hammering them with an iron fist.  They have corrupted the entire government and break laws with impunity while doing it.  THAT must change.  If they are allowed to remain in power through continued fraudulent elections, America is OVER !

What Happened to the Democrat Party ?

The DNC is no longer the party of FDR and JFK.  It is now controlled by former President Barack Obama and it is his agenda driving the country towards socialism at an alarming pace.  The entire power structure of the DNC has fallen into place, in total fealty to their “Messiah” and his master plan.  They march in lock-step and you never hear the voice of dissent coming from their ranks.  As extreme as the Green New Deal is, it would never be driving the entire domestic policy if Obama didn’t want it to accelerate the destruction of the American economy.  The plan is to take down “the great Satan” in order to insert his system of government.

Admittedly, I have not yet figured out how he intends to complete his “fundamental transformation” from a socialist state to one under Islamic rule, but the process is clearly underway.  In order to effect revolution the populace must first be controlled.  Once the majority is firmly in control, then the entire country can be manipulated, particularly when the regime’s “state” police is squashing all resistance. 

Perhaps he is just laying the groundwork for the eventual takeover by future Islamic leaders, knowing time is on his side.  It is one stratagem of jihad to play the “long game”, eroding existing norms by chipping away at the culture little-by-little.  That is why you see the recent attacks and focus on our public education system.  They have implemented radical theories in our elementary schools to brainwash our future leaders.  Muslims begin the indoctrination of their youth at a very early age – hmmmm ?

Yes, it is true that “progressives” began implementing Marxist ideology in our public education system over 100 years ago [4], but the process was too slow for Obama’s liking.  He wanted to accelerate the indoctrination campaign and look at how fast it is moving now. 

Metaphorically, this is a raging wildfire that is threatening to burn the entire country to the ground.

In Case You Missed It, Democrat Socialist Policies In Effect Include:

“Climate Change” activists relentlessly demand conformity to an abstract idea that the planet will become a wasteland within a few years if the United States doesn’t set the gold standard on energy consumption, which the rest of the world is exempted from – Biden (a.k,a. Obama, and his army of socialist activists) cancelled the Keystone XL pipeline and placed a moratorium on drilling leases on federal land on his first day in office.  That one act alone caused out-of-control inflation that is crushing the middle class.  Despite the White House attempt to redefine “recession”, we are in one right now.  Biden inherited an independent energy producer and flew to Saudi Arabia to beg for their oil, which is not produced as cleanly, or safely, as American oil.  Yet somehow, energy produced on the other side of the same planet doesn’t have as much impact on global warming.  Watch for the government to suggest they should be in control of the means of producing “clean” energy wind and solar farms.

The incessant condemnation of corporations, painting their very existence as greedy capitalists – don’t pay any attention to the fact that corporations employ millions of citizens, giving them the ability to purchase goods and services that help other citizens utilize the same dollars in an endless chain, classic “trickle-down” economics, which they claim doesn’t work.  Nonsense !  How does “trickle down” economics not work ?  Never mind that corporations increase wealth for many Americans.  And ignore the hypocrisy that even the most vocal socialists use corporations in their daily lives in a multitude of ways.

ObamaCare, cleverly named the “Affordable Care Act”, to make it sound so appealing, is nothing more than government control of health care and willing disclosure of your personal information – state control of health care is state control of the people.  Notice the misleading name of the Bill, and the same logic applied to Obiden’s naming of the “Inflation Reduction Act”.  The actual effect of the legislation is the opposite of the implied name, but they think you’re too stupid to figure it out, and don’t care if you do.

Control the education of children and condition them from their earliest ages as an indoctrination to socialism – did you notice the uproar from school boards in Virginia when parents attended meetings complaining about the curriculum their children were subjected to ?  They actually had those parents labelled as domestic terrorists, implying they had no right to inquire, or question, the authorities on what their children were being taught in school.

Ultimately, “gun control” is confiscation of private property.  Now they want to ban semi-automatic “assault weapons” (whatever category they think appropriate, subject to whimsical revisions).  That’s just the first step.  The gun grabbers will never stop their unstated goal of disarming the entire country.  The best way to control the people is to make sure they can’t fight back.  The Second Amendment is secured as part of the supreme law of the land and can only be repealed by constitutional amendment, or reversal by the Supreme Court, which recently upheld and strengthened it (see NYSRPA v. Bruen, 2022).  I posted a three-part series on the Second Amendment that you can see HERE.

Islamic Jihad: It’s more than You Think

I studied Islam for 15 years, not to convert, but to understand it as best I could.  I’m quite sure I could have earned a Masters degree in Middle East Studies had I chosen to pursue it.  One of the most important discoveries I made was in 2015 when I saw an article posted by the Islamic Supreme Council that was intended to debunk the way “non-believers” perceived jihad, but in their zealousness to inform the reader what jihad was not, they revealed what jihad was.  By that I mean they told us that jihad was not simply an army of AK-47 wielding terrorists, but also had other “forms” of support. [5]  (at this point, I recommend reading the entire footnote, before coming back to the main article)

If you look at many things Obama said and did, you might realize he has been waging jihad against America from the very beginning, in the form known as “by the tongue”. 

I would also highly recommend a thoroughly revealing publication that explores the background of Muhammad’s twisted “religion”.  [6]

America: Where Are We Now ?  

I’ve reviewed the transcript of Obiden’s 1st of September prime-time speech to the nation, his so-called “Continued Battle for the Soul of the Nation”.  After some introductory remarks on the importance of the city of Philadelphia in the founding of America, his attacks on his political opposition began with the phrase, “But as I stand here tonight, equality and democracy are under assault.”  And shortly thereafter said, “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”  Then, “And here, in my view, is what is true: MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution.  They do not believe in the rule of law.  They do not recognize the will of the people.”  Followed by, “They promote authoritarian leaders, and they fan the flames of political violence that are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country”, and citing a federal judge who called MAGA Republicans “a clear and present danger to our democracy.”

Actually, it’s the DNC that is the threat to our constitutional republic, and they are actively destroying it every day.

Projectionism on steroids:  He has perfectly described the Democrat party and his own administration.  Extreme activists who burned and looted cities across the country, assaulted police, firebombed federal buildings, actively supported by Democrat leaders, and then stole a presidential election to secure their power, and he wants you to think Republicans are threatening America.  That’s “rich.” 

Don’t be fooled by the charlatan master of deception, Barack Obama.  We the People are in a battle all right.  But it’s not against MAGA Republicans.  It’s a no-holds-barred conflict against the DNC and their socialist agenda.  The mainstream media (MSM) carries their water and dutifully attacks all political dissent through misrepresentation and outright censorship.  Right now, they are winning by holding across-the-board power, but on November 8th, Judgment Day will be upon them, and they have no legitimate accomplishments to run on.  Their candidates refuse to debate because they have no arguments.  Anyone who still supports the Democrat party at this point, after what they have done in the past 20 months, is a complete moron, PERIOD !  I try not to be rude directly, but that is the beauty of using a pen name.  I can say ANYTHING, and I DO.  In polite company, if the subject of political choice comes up, simply ask, “is your family better off now than it was 2 years ago?”  Then watch closely, as they dodge the question or change the subject.

Take NOTHING for granted and don’t trust ANY polls.  No matter how big a lead any Republican may appear to have, get out there and vote.  It’s not a vote FOR any particular candidate, and many of them are not ideal in every respect.  That doesn’t matter.  It’s a vote AGAINST every Democrat.  It’s not good enough to not vote for the Democrat.  Patriots must vote FOR every Democrat opponent.  America depends on you.



[1]  The Constitution requires term limits.  The entire body of the House of Representatives is up for re-election every two years.  Senators serve six-year terms and 1/3 of the chamber is up for re-election every two years on a rotating basis.  Presidential administrations have been limited to two four-year terms since 1951 by the 22nd Amendment.

[4] The progressive movement in America began in the era from 1890-1920, and you could spend countless hours studying the roots of progressivism.  The first “Progressive” School in America was the Lincoln School, founded in 1917 at Columbia Teacher’s College of New York as a political philosophy and reform movement (see Progressivism in the United States, Wikipedia).

Progressivism was a broad term used to describe a movement that was a response to the modernization of American society.  The intentions were originally somewhat noble in an effort to combat corruption and industrial pollution.  The early progressives had no idea what their followers would do to weaponize it against their political opposition.

John Dewey (1859-1952), often regarded as the father of progressivism in education, was a pragmatic philosopher who advocated a transition from classical education to learning that emphasized practical applications to solve problems and critical thinking that prepared students for future experiences.  In general, that seems like a pretty good idea, and it may have been a respected approach that was refined over many decades.  However, like many institutions controlled by the liberal left, “progressive” education has been hi-jacked in recent years by radical activists whose agenda is to indoctrinate our youth to accept a one-party power regime focused on “fundamentally transforming” America into a communist nation.

Remember when Obama initiated Common Core ?  Have you seen a common core math problem ?  It’s literally insane.  But it’s not about the process.  It’s about obedience and conformity.  The “progressive” movement simply must control the populace, by any and all means necessary.  Now we hear about parents complaining of Critical Race Theory (CRT) [4a] at school board meetings, and the FBI labelling those parents as domestic terrorists.  WHAT ?  Elected school board members telling parents they don’t need to know what their children are learning.  The teacher’s unions and the left-wing media completely deny the existence of CRT, and expect you to believe them.  You know, kind of like they do with voter fraud, and the border crisis.  The tired mantra of “there’s nothing to see here, move along”.  “Shut up and obey”.  Ironically, they have radicalized “progressive” education so much, they completely got away from Dewey’s emphasis on critical thinking.  They can’t tolerate critical analysis.  They demand silent obedience.

Have you ever noticed how self-proclaimed progressives act like they possess intellectual superiority over their social circles ?  This sense of elitism that must result from taking a few low-level college courses in sociology seems to elevate their self esteem above the level of their actual intelligence.  It would be amusing if it wasn’t obnoxious.

[4a]  Wikipedia defines Critical race theory (CRT) as,

a cross-disciplinary examination, by social and civil-rights scholars and activists, to explore how laws. social and political movements, and media shapes, and is shaped by, social conceptions of race and ethnicity. Goals include challenging all mainstream and “alternative” views of racism and racial justice, including conservative, liberal and progressive. The word critical in the name is an academic reference to critical thinking, critical theory, and scholarly criticism, rather than criticizing or blaming people.

In other words, everything about our society has been systemically developed through the lens of race and Americans should be ashamed of our country’s history, so it must all be torn down to effect “equity”.

[5]  Islamic Supreme Council ; Jihad: What it is Not (a reasonable facsimile of the original title) ;

The following is a summation from the original article, viewed January 2015:

   Jihad basically means to struggle or strive. There are 5 major forms of Jihad; by the heart, by the tongue, by the pen, by the hand, and by the sword.

By the heart deals with one’s inner struggle between good and evil.  (the media, in general, doesn’t want you to know these are actual jihadis, but if it happens to be discovered, they want you to think jihad is simply a spiritual “struggle” to gain acceptance, and violence is not legitimate jihad).  The Islamic Supreme Council would like you to stop right there, but there is more they tried to conceal later.

By the tongue is defending Islam and spreading Islam by scholarly lectures, speeches and debates. (Imam Choudary comes to mind)                                                    

By the pen involves scholarly research in aiding the spread and defense of Islam. (Example: this very article by the Islamic Supreme Council)

By the hand is action rather than words. (direct support of fighters)

By the sword includes usage of arsenals and engaging in combat. This could be anything from a bunch of freedom fighters to an organized campaign of a large army and is allowed under two conditions.

1. for self defense – when someone attacks you or your nation/state

2. fighting against evil or unjust (this is the form justifying terrorism as we know it because Muhammad proclaimed that ALL Jews and Christians were “unjust”).  They believe they can bring a war to your shores because you are “unjust” in their minds, but see no evil in themselves for taking armed conflict into peaceful societies.  That sounds a LOT like the current strategy being employed by the DNC, i.e., “projectionism”.  They seem to be (wrongly) accusing their political opponents of behavior they themselves are thoroughly engaged in. 

By the way, if you visit the site cited below, you will NOT find what I copied from it in January 2015.  A few months later, I re-visited the site and discovered the administrators had edited the article to obscure the clearly defined “forms” of jihad, as I summarized above.  They broke up the 5-form list and added seemingly unobjectionable language designed to comfort the reader into a more acceptable frame of mind.  Someone had decided the January version was too revealing.  Today that site resembles nothing like it did 7 years ago and their “Archives” menu dates from August 1996 to April 2011. 

From the Archives of January 2010, they have an article titled Jihad: A Misunderstood Concept from Islam that loosely resembles the original article.

On page 3 it says, “<jaahidu>, is used to mean struggle by means of the tongue—preaching and exhortation— . . . “, an excerpt that reveals the form known as “by the tongue”.  On page 10 they have two chapters titled, “What Jihad Is” and “What Jihad Is Not”, which are likely the highly edited sections of the original.

Woke Billionaire Transforms Madison’s Montpelier

Thomas Paine: American Philosopher, & Revolutionary

From 1776 through the formation of The Constitution I helped create America. Now I have returned to help save America. American Patriots must join together, speak out in free and open discussion to fight the “woke” anti-American mob, and further the cause of FREEDOM.

A recent article in the New York Post details how a liberal billionaire financed a transformation of James Madison’s homestead, Montpelier, into a 21st century museum of revisionist history, more suited to the “woke” mob of cultural activists than tourists interested in American history.   

A Few Excerpts

“No American flags fly at Montpelier, Madison’s plantation home in rural Virginia, and not a single display focuses on the life and accomplishments of America’s foremost political philosopher . . . “  [1]

One visitor commented:

“The worst part were the gross historical inaccuracies and constant bias exhibited by the tour guide” 

Another said:

“A one hour Critical Race Theory experience disguised as a tour.” 

Later in the article, it is revealed that “In May, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, which owns the home, forced the board to accept a slate of left-wing activist members in the name of racial equity.”

The new members aim to transform Montpelier into “a black history and black rights organization that could care less about James Madison and his legacy,” board member Mary Alexander, a documented descendant of Madison’s slave Paul Jennings, told the Orange County Review.  [2]


James Madison, 4th President of the United States (1809-1817), worked with other members of the Virginia delegation, particularly Edmund Randolph and George Mason, at the Philadelphia Convention of 1787, to draft and present the Virginia Plan, an outline of our federal Constitution, establishing the three  branches of government (legislative, executive, and judicial).  He is widely recognized as The Father of The Constitution.  Along with Alexander Hamilton and John Jay, he co-wrote The Federalist Papers, some 85 essays in support of the Constitution, of which he authored 29.  He was also the principal architect of the Bill of Rights, ratified in 1791.  Madison was one of thee most influential of all our founding fathers. 

Madison inherited the large tobacco plantation known as Montpelier, including his father’s numerous slaves, when he was 50 years old.  It is located in rural Orange County Virginia, not far from Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello.

James Madison did not invent slavery.  He did not purchase Montpelier and slaves to manage it.  He was just one of the prominent founders to have been living in the time when it was prevalent.  In fact, Madison opposed slavery intellectually, arguing against a proposed 20-year delay in ending the foreign slave trade.  But he found it necessary to accept a compromise in order to gain support from southern states to ratify the Constitution.  And he proposed what became known as the Three Fifths Compromise, an agreement reached during the 1787 Constitutional Convention, that accounted for the slave populations of the various states to be counted in determining the number of seats in the House of Representatives.

A Typical Disgrace Created by Woke Activism

Billionaire David M. Rubenstein granted $10 million to Montpelier to transform the homestead into a museum highlighting slavery and racism rather than a story of the respected founding father.  Virtual blasphemy.  It is utterly disgusting to me, having known the man to be one of, if not thee, brightest political philosophers of our time.  To erase a monument to his legacy and replace it with a museum of radical ideology focused on critical race theory and the 1619 Project is cultural warfare propagated by an anti-American activist.

Biden Launches Dystopian Disinformation Governance Bureau

Thomas Paine: American Philosopher, & Revolutionary

From 1776 through the formation of The Constitution I helped create America. Now I have returned to help save America. Please join my Facebook group American Patriots in a free and open discussion to further the cause of FREEDOM.  

Less than 48 hours after Elon Musk acquired Twitter, President Biden announced a new prong of the DNC’s Marxist socialist agenda by forming the Disinformation Governance Bureau, a dystopian agency under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security, tasked with monitoring the freedom of speech exercised by anyone criticizing the current regime.  As Director, he named none other than Nina Jankowicz, a former “disinformation fellow at the Wilson Center”, who advised the Ukrainian government on strategic communications under the auspices of a Fulbright-Clinton Public Policy Fellowship.  [1] 

Biden selected Nina Jankowicz to lead the
Department of Homeland Security’s
Disinformation Governance Bureau.

She repeatedly debunked and denied the existence of Hunter Biden’s laptop when she was writing articles for the New York Times, the Washington Post, and other far-left publications.  In other words, she has previously fulfilled the role of Joseph Goebbels for Joe Biden and her appointment is payback.

The Disinformation Governance Bureau (DGB) appears to be a direct response to Musk’s intentions to eliminate censorship by Twitter.  The DGB will closely monitor Twitter users and swiftly intervene on content they don’t approve, to label it as “disinformation”, countering free speech with their own brand of propaganda.  The Bureau is, in itself, suppression of free speech and is thereby an unconstitutional violation of the first amendment rights of American citizens.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) said, “Surely, no American administration would ever use the power of government to sit in judgment on the First Amendment speech of its own citizens.  Sadly, I was mistaken.”  [2]

The Department issued the following statements intended to justify the creation of the DGB: 

•  ”The spread of disinformation can affect border security, Americans’ safety during disasters, and public trust in our democratic institutions.” 

•  “The board will protect privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties as part of its duties.”  [3]

You’re going to need a full rubber suit to avoid that wave of crap.  The truth is completely opposite of that nonsense.

History reminds us of similar organizations, notably the Reich Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda, headed by Joseph Goebbels.  In late April 1930, Adolph Hitler appointed Goebbels to oppose Gregor Strasser, a leading Nazi organizer in northern Germany, whose policies conflicted with Hitler’s vision of the Nazi Party, naming him Reich leader of Nazi Party Propaganda.  One of his first acts was to ban Strasser’s Nationaler Sozialist newspaper and was then given control of other Nazi papers across the country, including the party’s national newspaper, the Völkischer Beobachter (People’s Observer).  The goal of Goebbels’ Reich Ministry was to “centralise Nazi control of all aspects of German cultural and intellectual life”.  [4] 

The propaganda ministry was organised into seven departments: administration and legal; mass rallies, public health, youth, and race; radio; national and foreign press; films and film censorship; art, music, and theatre; and protection against counter-propaganda, both foreign and domestic.  [5]  The DNC’s “democrat socialists” who obviously are running the country today have an uncanny resemblance to the “departments” of the Reich Ministry.

In 1954 the Soviet Union formed the KGB, or Committee for State Security (Eng. translation), tasked with “the protection of the country’s political leadership, the supervision of border troops, and the general surveillance of the population.”  Every Soviet leader depended on the KGB (substitute DGB here) for information, surveillance of key elites (think: targeted American conservatives), and control of the population.  [6]  

Looking at the scope of propaganda exercised by the Reich Ministry, and the role of the KGB, we can see the similarities to the current DNC.  Democrats are protected by the mainstream media, who collude to censor all negative stories, often blatantly lying to the public about real scandals that deserve scrutiny.  They have no defense and can’t formulate legitimate arguments, so they immediately deflect by playing the race card, or unleashing intentionally divisive vitriol designed to enrage their moronic followers.  Hollywood and “big tech” dutifully march to the same drumbeat.  The media controls the social consciousness.  That which is exposed by the few alternate sources of information is uniformly denied and ridiculed as “conspiracy theories”.  They echo the exact same phrases across the various news outlets, as if they all “zoomed” a conference call to brainstorm the precise wording.  We have all seen the video montages that would be hilarious if they weren’t true.  And they don’t even care how ridiculous they sound, because they know their viewers will believe anything they say.  It’s a shame the “useful idiots” don’t realize their authoritarian “leaders” give them no credit whatsoever.

The Democrats have enacted Soviet-style communist tactics against American citizens by closing businesses, locking down schools, and mask mandates, all under the guise of “public health”.  Now, the Biden administration has launched the DGB to counter everything they determine is “propaganda”, headed by a woman who protected her “leader” by spreading Biden-approved (no doubt) “misinformation” in attempting to debunk the “Hunter’s laptop” scandal.

This is not a drill.  The far-left faction of the DNC seems to be in control (although I could argue everything we see happening today is at the direction of one man).  Their Marxist socialist agenda is barreling down on us in overdrive.  They know they have the power and the full protection of the media, the justice system, and a thoroughly divided nation.  Their game plan is to “fundamentally transform” America as quickly as possible.  Patriots must unite behind any and all political opposition, regardless of name or reputation.  It doesn’t matter who is running against them.  We must destroy the DNC by voting all of them out at the earliest opportunity.  VOTE, because your life depends on it, and those of your children and grandchildren. 

Comments always welcomed.

The Puppet Master Raises His Head

Thomas Paine: American Philosopher, & Revolutionary

From 1776 through the formation of The Constitution I helped create America. Now I have returned to help save America. Please join my Facebook group American Patriots in a free and open discussion to further the cause of FREEDOM.

Every red-blooded American patriot knows the DNC has been hijacked by the radical left-wing faction within their party, Hell-bent on “fundamentally transforming” the United States into a Marxist socialist society.  And they are proceeding at an alarming pace.  But who exactly is directing everything?  In my, almost never, humble opinion (IMANHO), the answer is painfully obvious.

Is Biden running the show?  Puhhleeez.

Is The Squad (AOC, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley) in charge?  C’Mon man.  It has to be someone more powerful than that.

Kamala?  Yeah, right.  She’s nothing more than word salad nonsense.

Oh wait.  Have we forgotten someone?  You know, the guy who organized a 30,000 member army of activists to further his agenda, which has always been to destroy America.  Yeah, THAT guy.  Here’s a couple pictures of him, just to remind you  —-

He made his first return to the White House recently (Tuesday, April 5, 2022) to stir up some excitement with the base Democrats amidst sinking poll numbers for the “most popular” President in history.  I’m sure all 81 million voters saw the video of their man being overshadowed by their Messiah.

Watch the video in the link to see poor old Joe being upstaged by his former, and current, boss.

The conservative media all dutifully expressed their sadness for the latest high profile Democrat criminal.  I know, he hasn’t been charged with anything, so all accusations are purely alleged.  Never mind the growing list of credible evidence, some of it already verified to have serious implications (Hunter’s laptop).  But remember, the Attorney General is always appointed by the President, and presumed to be impartial.  I suspect that isn’t even close to an accurate perception.  Basically Merrick Garland is the commanding officer of the DNC Praetorian Guard. 

Despite numerous opportunities to prosecute Hillary Clinton, among other high-ranking Democrats, with plenty of evidence, Trump’s AGs never brought any charges against them in four years, all while he was under intense investigation himself.  But when the Democrats are in charge, the DOJ exhibits a little more “enthusiasm” (Loretta Lynch and Obama’s “wing man” Eric Holder).  It’s almost like the Democrats are above the law, while Republicans get accused of phony scandals and must constantly remain on defense, perhaps as a stratagem.

Dare I suggest that Obama deserves a little investigating himself?  Let me lay out a few facts and see if we can connect the dots to form a theory based on a pattern, or theme, to the actions he has taken.  Critics and deniers will try to denounce all this, calling it all part of a right-wing conspiracy theory, and labelling me a racist.  So to back up some allegations, I offer details, to wit:

•  Obama is a disciple of Saul Alinsky – Alinsky was a prominent community organizer in Chicago, founding several organizations in the 1940s that recruited various ethnicities and generated a grievance industry.  (sound familiar?) In his book, Rules for Radicals, under The Ideology of Change, Alinsky advocates for the “reorganization into a new social order” leading to the “political paradise of communism”.  I’ll be damned; “change”, “new social order”, and the “paradise of communism”.  That almost sounds like the mantra of todays’ DNC.                                                     

Following two years in New York City at Columbia University and two years of employment, Obama moved to his “hometown”, Chicago, at the age of 23, becoming Director of the Developing Communities Project (DCP) from June 1985 to May 1988, then traveled to Europe and Kenya for about 2 months.  In the summer of 1988 he entered Harvard Law School.  While at Harvard, Obama went to Los Angeles to attend a “national training course on Alinsky methods of organizing” [1], graduated in 1991 and returned to Chicago.  He taught courses at the University of Chicago Law School for twelve years (1992-2004), including eight years as a Senior Lecturer, teaching courses in due process and equal protection, voting rights, and racism and law.  Hmmm, “voting rights” and “racism”; two high profile issues being championed by Democrats today.  Although they never met (Alinsky died in 1972), you can clearly see that Obama was hugely influenced by Alinsky by reading my two-part series, The Socialist Agenda of Alinsky and Obama

•  In a speech Obama gave during a campaign rally in 2008, Obama said, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”  He wasn’t kidding.  That “transformation” is right now on “full throttle” and it means he intends to change the United States into a socialist/communist society.

•  Obama’s 2008 campaign slogan was “Hope and Change” – the deliberate deception was to make the listener think he meant he was offering them hope that he could effect real change in terms of improving their lives.  In reality, he intended to change America into a socialist state using Alinsky’s blueprint.

•  Soon after his inauguration, he starts pushing for “universal health care”, a key pillar of socialism.  The result was the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA, commonly known as ObamaCare).  All the well-founded criticism about most of the working class losing their preferred health care didn’t matter.  The worn-out promise “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”, became a joke, and premiums skyrocketed for harder to find doctors in the system.  I don’t want to deny health care to needy patients, wealthy or not, but we didn’t need to overhaul he entire system to accommodate relatively few people.  And now we have socialist health care that is inferior to the system we previously had.  If you think the government should be in charge of health care, ask a veteran how he rates the VA.

•  Another big agenda item on Obama’s list was education reform.  If you recall, it was during the early years of the first Obama term that Democrats started ramping up their campaign for free college tuition, college loan debt forgiveness, and the Common Core curriculum came to be.  “In general, socialists believe the government should provide a range of basic services to the public, such as health care and education, for free or at a significant discount.”  [2]                   

Have you ever seen a typical Common Core math problem?  It’s literally insane.  In Obama’s mind, he had tackled two of the biggest institutions with socialist reforms.  It was time to divide and conquer the social consciousness by waging class warfare, creating racial animosity, vilifying the police, and exploding the national debt, all intentionally designed to crush the working middle class and split the country into two antagonistic factions.  Attacks on critical institutions like the welfare system and the military were soon to follow. 

•  To take America down a few notches, he figured he would decimate the military.  There has always been resistance to excessive military spending, some of it justifiable.  Obama knew he could exploit that, starting with some general support.  The actions he took to cripple the military are too numerous to mention here, but one of the most demoralizing moves he ordered was to issue “pink slips” (notices of impending layoffs) to officers in the combat zone of Afghanistan.  Imagine being in the theater of war, literally hoping you don’t get killed at any moment, and receiving a pink slip.  Is that really necessary?  Couldn’t it have been delayed until the officer returned home?  Of course.  But the object was to demoralize the officers, and thereby distract them from their life-threatening duties, giving them something else to think about.  Despicable, and arguably treasonous!

•  Then Chief Counterterrorism Advisor, John Brennan, received a letter dated  October 19, 2011, from signatories of 57 Islamic organizations, complaining of  “biased, false and highly offensive training materials about Muslims and Islam” inside the federal government’s instructional halls, and demanded that biased trainers be disciplined, that all instructors undergo retraining and that materials deemed offensive by Muslim activists be purged.  Within six months, the Department of Defense ordered Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley to cease and desist  teaching a Pentagon pre-approved course that prepared commissioned officers for deployment to the Middle East; the Department of Homeland Security was ordered to scrub the watch list of suspected terrorists; and the Department of Justice ordered the FBI to purge their watch list and cease the profiling of suspected Islamic terrorists.  All three of those cabinet departments were headed by Obama appointees who had only one boss, Obama himself. 

More than 300 identified terrorists, mostly foreign nationals, were scrubbed from the system under the guise of civil rights, as if terrorists deserve the same civil rights as American citizens.  Philip Haney, founding member of DHS and developer of the TECS system for collecting and organizing data on suspected terrorists, author of the book See Something, Say Nothing, said, “What I witnessed suggests the Obama administration is more concerned with the rights of non-citizens in known Islamist groups than with the safety and security of the American people”.  Haney was found dead of a gunshot wound on February 21, 2020 in a park and ride lot near his home in California, ruled a suicide, but possibly assassinated.  The local Sheriff’s Department is still waiting for the FBI to complete its investigation.

The attacks that followed:

15 Apr 2013: The Tsarnaev brothers detonate two bombs at the Boston Marathon – 3 dead, 264 wounded.  An FBI-led Boston Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) Officer questioned Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2011 and closed his case.  In January 2012, Tsarnaev boarded a flight to Moscow, which triggered an alert to the Boston JTTF Officer.  He failed to follow up.  Then the Russians notified the CIA of Tsarnaev’s activities and the CIA alerted several agencies including the FBI, the DHS, and the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), which placed Tsarnaev on a “watch list”.  The NCTC referred the case to the FBI’s Foreign Terrorist Tracking Task Force (FTTTF), and the FTTTF analyst who reviewed the case determined the information was the same as the original JTTF assessment, despite the intermediate trip to Russia/Dagestan, and dropped the case.  [3]

2 Dec 2015: Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik attack the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, CA – 14 dead, 22 wounded.  The San Bernardino terrorists were affiliated with Tablighi Jamaat.  Philip Haney claims that if his case had remained open, there would have been two red flags raised prior to the attack.  Either Farook would have been placed on the “no-fly” list or Malik would have been denied a visa based on Farook’s association with the known terrorist organization.

12 Jun 2016: Omar Mateen blocks the only unlocked exit inside an Orlando, FL nightclub and opens fire with semi-automatic weapons – 49 dead, 53 wounded.  Mateen came to the attention of the FBI in 2013 when co-workers reported he had made inflammatory comments claiming connections to foreign terrorists. They opened a case and placed him on a terrorist watch list for over a year.  The FBI interviewed Mateen again following a May 2014 bombing in Syria based on his contact with the suicide bomber, who had attended the same mosque.  They ended their investigation after a third interview found no credible evidence that he posed a terrorist threat.  The mosque in Fort Pierce, Florida frequented by Omar Mateen is also affiliated with the Tablighi Jamaat network.

All of these terrorist attacks have common threads:

1. they were all committed by Islamic extremists, or “radical” Islamists.

2. two of the three were affiliated with the same terrorist network – the Tablighi Jamaat

3. two of the three were committed by terrorists who were on the FBI “radar screen”, more than once.

4. all of them could plausibly have been prevented by Philip Haney’s program if it had been permitted to continue.

This is my personal favorite act of alleged treason committed by Obama, among several “contestants”.  It was a deliberate act that exposed American citizens to a very real threat, and left blood on his hands.

•  Obama’s 2012 campaign slogan was “Forward” – a term long associated Europe’s radical left wing.  “A column by Russian immigrant Svetlana Kunin, for Investor’s Business Daily, said Obama seeks to move America forward to ‘total government involvement in people’s lives.’ “ [4]

In his book, Radical in Chief, Stanley Kurtz called Obama a “stealth socialist”, saying, “over the long term, Obama’s plans are designed to ensnare the country in a new socialism, a stealth socialism that masquerades as a traditional sense of fair play, a soft but pernicious socialism similar to that currently strangling the economies of Europe.”  [5]  Kurtz recognized that Obama is playing the long game, and exploiting the natural instinct of liberal minds to embrace compassion towards the “Have-Nots”, as Alinsky called them.  How many times did you hear him say the millionaires and billionaires (the “Haves”) should pay their “fair share” in taxes to subsidize the “Have-Nots”?  Deliberate class warfare.  Divide and conquer.

Ken Blackwell, former Ohio Secretary of State, said, “My fundamental belief is that he wants to transform our market economy into a government-controlled economy – not far afield from European-style socialism.” [6]  There’s that word again, ‘transform’.

•  During the 2016 election cycle, it was widely accepted that Hillary Clinton, the Queen of Corruption, would carry on with Obama’s agenda.  All the polls told us it was inevitable that she would be coronated.  As an insurance policy, she and her campaign brain trust, concocted a phony opposition research scheme that implicated Donald Trump as a Russian agent.  The propaganda arm of the DNC, the mainstream media, was eager to promote the story.  As it turned out, Trump won the election, legitimately, and the entire smear campaign was exposed as a complete lie financed by the Clinton campaign.  Meanwhile, Obama had to put his plans on hold until the Democrats won back the White House, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.  They assured Joe Biden that he could hide away in his basement during the campaign season of 2020.  They would make sure Trump was not re-elected.  Using the COVID pandemic as an excuse to lobby for mail-in voting, and massive fraud in battleground states, they somehow produced 81 million votes for a candidate who hardly even poked his head out during the campaign.  The Trump legal team collected over 1,000 independent sworn affidavits from witnesses who claimed they saw various “irregularities” at polling places in seven states.  The DNC simply denied everything, echoed by the MSM, and the courts dutifully dismissed the cases.  Texas brought a case before the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of four states, which is perfectly allowable, and on December 11, 2020, SCOTUS announced they would not consider the case because it “had no basis”.  No basis?  Are you serious? 

At that point, there was no stopping the Biden inauguration, despite a January 6th “mainly peaceful” protest on the U.S. Capitol that Democrats immediately called an “insurrection”.  To this day, the FBI and recruited antagonists have not been completely exonerated in their incitement of the “riot”.  And of course, the DOJ has no intention of exploring that avenue of investigation.

•  In the 2018 midterm primary, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) won a shocking victory over powerful Democrat Caucus Chair, 10 time incumbent, Joe Crowley.  She immediately formed a coalition with Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), naming themselves “The Squad”, and began lobbying for alternative energy sources they termed the “Green New Deal”, which called for a quick transition to renewable resources and abandonment of fossil fuels.  Fast forward a few years and it seems The Squad has hijacked the entire DNC and is directing policy from the House of Representatives.   

•  Enter “Quid Pro” Joe Biden: Remember the Ukraine scandal of 2020?  That time VP Joe Biden withheld $1 billion in funding to Ukraine unless they fired the respected prosecutor who was zeroing in on his son, Hunter.  He bragged about it on camera.  Check out the video at
Biden brags about withholding aid from Ukraine unless they fire the Prosecutor investigating his son, Hunter

By this time, Biden is mentally declining, to put it mildly, and Obama will find it easy to manipulate everything from behind the scenes, which is exactly what is going on right now.  After all, he didn’t recruit an army of over 30,000 activists to further his agenda for no reason.  They had “work” to do.

•  On his first day in office, Biden halted the Keystone XL pipeline and issued Executive Orders that effectively shut down domestic oil and gas production by eliminating exploration on federal lands.  Apparently, Biden is beholden to The Squad and will not budge on his war against American energy, even in the face of serious shortages and rapid inflation due to the current Russia/Ukraine conflict.  He has even pledged to increase exports of U.S. produced LNG to Europe by 15 bcm (billion cubic meters) this year, and increase those exports to 50 bcm annually through 2030.  To put that in perspective, we sent Europe about 22 bcm last year, and the total U.S. production is only about 100 bcm.  Simple logic tells us that less supply for Americans means higher prices.  But never mind you hurting Americans.  You can just pay $5 a gallon for your gas, or buy an electric car.  Is this just stubborn old Joe, as if he can analyze anything, or is there a bigger picture lurking in the shadows?  An opportunity for Obama to strike a devastating blow to the American economy.  This whole pandemic and Russian aggression thing is working out really well for a guy who wants to destroy a country. 

Looking down the road, he quite possibly sees a replacement for Biden in 2024, perhaps another easily controlled “candidate”.  Maybe even somebody he lives with and could place on a pedestal, convincing his moronic voting base that Michelle would be a fine first woman President.  We know the media will be ecstatic.  He’s even on record as saying he could control someone by giving instructions through a hidden earpiece.  Sound ludicrous?  Don’t be surprised when they nominate Michelle.  Then he’d have eight more years to “fundamentally transform” America.

The Ideological War Has Begun: How Can We Save America?

Thomas Paine: American Philosopher, & Revolutionary

From 1776 through the formation of The Constitution I helped create America. Now I have returned to help save America. Please join my Facebook group American Patriots in a free and open discussion to further the cause of FREEDOM.

The ideological war has begun.  It is upon us now.  We did not ask for this confrontation.  It has been thrust upon us by the leadership of the Democrat party, their well-oiled Reich Ministry of Propaganda the mainstream media (MSM), and the ideologues who dutifully follow them.

A supercharged political atmosphere hovers over the entire country like a menacing smog.  Its presence is everywhere.  It cannot be ignored.  It has divided us more than any time since the Civil War, when brothers at arms opposed each other across bloody battlefields that claimed over 618,000 sacrificial lambs.

The foundations of America are under attack, from our Constitution, to our institutions, to our economic system, to our societal norms and values, literally every aspect of our way of life.  This is not a drill.

The Democrat Party (DNC) is the metaphoric siege machine, hurling giant boulders into the castle that is America.  We are holding on for now, but the walls are crumbling.  Having the media as their protectorate, they now push their socialist agenda to “fundamentally transform America” by forcing it down our collective throats, every single day.  They have no intentions of engaging in debate, or negotiation, on the merits of their proposals.  They march in lock-step with total unity, softening the language with deceptive phrases designed to fool the masses, expecting them to accept their authority.  Too often, their stated goals are completely disingenuous, and have nothing to do with the real objective.  Everyone who fails to fall into line is vilified, publicly scorned, and outcast from society in textbook fascist fashion.

To be fair, many lifelong Democrat voters are not engaged enough to have realized their beloved party has been hijacked by the extreme left-wing socialist faction that runs it today.  Indeed, most people are so busy in the routines of everyday life, they barely have time to think about anything else at all, let alone politics.  They simply tune in casually every four years and perform their civic duty as they always have, then walk away feeling good about themselves for supporting what they believed were genuine concerns expressed by their favorite partisans.  Hillary Clinton was caught by a hot mic saying, “voters are stupid”.  The DNC actually believes their own voters are “useful idiots”.  I can’t blame them for being loyal, but maybe some of them are ripe for enlightenment.  It is one of the missions of American Patriots to make them aware that their decisions were haphazard at best, and disastrous by the results of their choice.  

All American Patriots [1] are certainly disheartened by the direction this country is taking at the hands of the DNC and the MSM.  It is not enough to get riled up and vent to your like-minded friends on Facebook to see how many “Likes” you can get.  We must do more.  This is a call to action.  But even when you know you must act, it’s a matter of how.  We know we must do something.  But what exactly can we do,  without placing ourselves in legal jeopardy?  It’s one thing to be publicly ridiculed, perhaps even a “badge of honor”.  It’s another level to face federal prison, which I don’t recommend.  At American Patriots, as in all my posts, I suggest we exercise caution before acting, or even saying anything that could be deemed slanderous or libelous towards specific individuals.  For some legal definitions and pertinent statutes, check out my page on Statutes to Avoid

There are some things we can do to help fight the socialist agenda.  You will see that none of these suggestions advocate violence.  They are all peaceful and completely legal means that require some degree of activism.  Generally, I don’t care much for activists, but we must fight fire with fire and employ the same tactics they use rather effectively.

• Speak out

Talk to your family, friends, and neighbors.  In many cases, you may already know how they lean politically, and can avoid the ideologues.  If you are unsure, you can start with subtle hints of your position and watch closely how they react.  Obviously it’s better to do this face-to-face, not via text or phone.  I’m no psychiatrist, but any negative response or defensive body language probably indicates resistance and a sign to stop right there.  If they seem enthused to continue the discussion, it’s likely they are already in our “tent” and it won’t take long to confirm that.  It’s those who seem slightly caught off-guard, ask respectful questions, or seem willing to engage civilly that may be “on the fence” and are potential converts.  It might be best to proceed slowly in light doses, perhaps over several engagements, but you can probably get a few points across eventually that could make them think a little.  Try to keep it respectful, not mean, angry, or condescending.

• Debate them if necessary

I love this one.  I choose my debates wisely, but I’m undefeated.  Why? Because when I decide to engage in debate, it’s already over.  The opponent has no chance to prove his point because he is wrong, period!  Typically, I’ll allow him to present his case, and then destroy it in less than two minutes.  It’s so easy I have gotten bored with the exercise.  How can that be possible? Have you listened to the positions they hold?  Virtually every issue is nonsensical.  Almost everything they say can be easily exposed as hypocrisy, contradicting things they have said earlier about the same issue.  Case in point:

Have you noticed that practically every time they are confronted with anything they deem offensive, the other party is “racist”?  I don’t know what race has to do with anything in the 21st century, but Obama brought it into the social consciousness and now the entire “progressive” movement plays the race card at every opportunity.  They talk about reparations and use affirmative action as reverse discrimination, as if the black community is to receive preferential treatment from now on.  I don’t have any animosity whatsoever towards the black community.  They deserve every opportunity on an equal basis just like the Constitution says.  I’m happy they are included and part of making society a better place to live.  I didn’t even want to bring race into the conversation, but the left wants to go back to conditions before the Civil War as justification for their demands, they need to be reminded that it was the “party of Lincoln” (Republicans) who freed the slaves and fought for the post-Civil War constitutional amendments that acknowledged their rights.  Southern Democrats were responsible for suppressing the black vote.  Now they claim it’s Republicans who are suppressing the black vote.  Republicans aren’t suppressing any voters.  They just want to ensure that all votes are legitimate, cast by actual citizens, each one entitled to one vote.  Democrats, on the other hand, are pushing for nationwide mail-in ballots and voting for non-citizens, which happens to be unconstitutional.  Some major cities like New York and Los Angeles have already approved non-citizen voting.  You might “fact check” that and conclude that Illegal voting doesn’t happen, but be cognizant of the source.  Typically, a left-wing “journalist” will ignore factual data or just blatantly lie.  The current Democrat presidential administration even recruits people from across the globe to come here illegally, apply for free stuff, and vote Democrat to keep the free stuff flowing.  As ridiculous as all that sounds, it’s obvious the debate was over pretty quickly.

• Get involved

Examine the voting records of some of your district Representatives (U. S. House) and listen carefully to what they are saying.  Or listen to new candidates for clues on whether they seem to be patriots or socialists.  Then show your support for those candidates by promoting them on your social media, perhaps even volunteering for their campaign efforts if you have the time.  Don’t waste your time on local politicians, with a few exceptions.  For example, all the hoopla over the school board meetings in Virginia have made national news because they involve national issues, such as the rights of parents to be active in the curriculum of their children, against the school districts teaching Critical Race Theory.  Parental groups could be organized to attend all school board meetings and protest all efforts to teach our young minds socialist ideas.  The indoctrination of our children must be stopped.  But in general, it’s the federal level candidates we need to focus on.  Keep in mind, it’s not necessary to love the Republican party or their candidates.  We need to defeat every Democrat at every opportunity, no matter who the opponent is.

• Protest

The First Amendment guarantees “the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”  The DNC is actively working on destroying the First Amendment through excessive restrictions, but at this writing, no law has been passed that eliminates our right to peaceably protest.

By the way, the January 6th event at the U. S. Capitol the Democrats and the media are calling “Insurrection Day”, was in fact, mostly peaceful protestors.  Yes, there were some who carried out acts of violence and they are justly being held to account for their actions.  Those bad actors appear to have been extreme right-wing groups who descended upon the scene with ill intent, but by no stretch of the imagination did they represent the full body of protestors, nor was anything said by Trump at his rally that morning indicative of a call to storm the building by violence.  The media labelling all Republicans as “white supremacists” is no more accurate than us calling all Democrats morons.  Again, the media using propaganda to influence the perceived idiots that follow their “authority”.  The media essentially assumes their own viewers are idiots, expecting to retain credibility after bloviating such nonsense.


Boycott, divest, and sanction corporations and even small companies that have expressed their socialist ideology.  Mark Levin talks about this in depth in his latest book American Marxism. [2]  Companies that can be identified supporting the DNC and their socialist agenda should be boycotted by true American patriots.  Simply take your business elsewhere.  Conversely, companies that have obviously stood up against these anti-American movements, should be supported by patriotic consumers.  If you have a stock portfolio, review the companies you have invested in and liquidate those assets for redirection to companies that share your American pride.  In other words, sanction goods and services that openly follow socialist movements, and call them directly to voice your concerns.  Media Research Center tracks corporate sponsors of major network news shows. [3]  How many times have you heard that left-wing activists have threatened to cease the sponsorship of prime time opinion shows hosted by Fox news personalities they don’t approve of?  Who says you can’t do the same thing to their favorite talking heads?

These are just a few actions that any citizen can perform to help save America, and we as American Patriots must be willing to step forward and be heard.  America depends on those willing to defend her.

Republican vs. Democrat Platform

Thomas Paine: American Philosopher, & Revolutionary

From 1776 through the formation of The Constitution I helped create America. Now I have returned to help save America. Please join my Facebook group American Patriots in a free and open discussion to further the cause of FREEDOM.  

Yesterday, President Joe Biden conducted a solo press conference to close out his first year in office.

Despite all the delusion on display that he “has done as much in one year” as any President, and his frequent loss of thought train, the one thing he said that stuck out to me more than any other was his rhetorical question, “What are Republicans for?” “Name me one thing they’re for.”

I’m no Republican, but I’ll take that challenge.  Sorry, I can’t name just one

Republicans, in contrast to Democrats, are for:

• The Constitution

• The Bill of Rights

• Individualism and personal responsibility

• A free-market capitalist economy

• Secure borders that control legal immigration

• Law and order

• Lower taxes

• Energy independence

• Voter ID and election integrity

• Unification of all Americans

. . . and a few things Republicans are not for:

• Marxist socialism

• Centralized government in control of every aspect of life

• Collectivism, whereby the people are deemed too stupid to take care of themselves

• The “political paradise of communism”, per Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals

• Open borders advertising free stuff, courtesy of the American taxpayer

• Rampant crime sprees in major cities with “get out of jail free” cards

• Higher taxes

• Dependence on foreign energy due to restrictions on American producers

• Manufactured phony ballots that steal elections and disenfranchise actual citizens

• Division of Americans by race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, and/or religion

That first list is essentially the Republican platform.  The second list is the Democrat platform.  Which one do you like?

The Socialist Agenda of Alinsky and Obama: Part 2

Thomas Paine: American Philosopher, & Revolutionary

From 1776 through the formation of The Constitution I helped create America. Now I have returned to help save America. Please join my Facebook group American Patriots in a free and open discussion to further the cause of FREEDOM.  

PART 2 – if you have not read Part 1 yet, please click HERE

Barack Obama burst onto the national stage during the 2004 Democrat National Convention in Boston, delivering the Keynote Speech that was revered by the affectionate media.     

On 30 October 2008 at a campaign rally in Columbia, Missouri, Obama said, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

(Paine):  That was the red flag that no one seemed to notice.  Did anyone think to ask him what he meant by “fundamentally transforming” America?  Into what?

Dr. Paul Kengor, Professor of Political Science at Grove City College, says that the definition of totalitarianism is to “seek to fundamentally transform – specifically, to fundamentally transform human nature via some form of political-ideological-cultural upheaval.” [1]

From Obama’s beginnings as a community organizer in Chicago, picking up where Alinsky left off, his modus operandi has been to divide and conquer along racial and ethnic lines, by socio-economic status, relentlessly pushing for the redistribution of wealth from the “Haves” to the “Have Nots”, by vilifying, ridiculing, and condemnation of all political opposition, by attacking traditional institutions, such as law and order, criminal justice, social values, the military,  and the Constitution itself.  The MSM dutifully carries the banner of the DNC.  Isn’t it ironic that the party of tolerance and diversity, a classic liberal tenet, has no tolerance for diverse opinions?

That is why I have said we are now the Divided States of America.  This discord between the liberal left and the conservative right has been simmering for many years, kept respectfully at bay until Barack Obama rose to power. The movement towards socialism/communism did not begin with Obama.  It’s origins go back into the late 19th century, but it has accelerated under his direction, following Alinsky’s playbook almost to the letter.  He is the one person most responsible for driving a wedge between political viewpoints and urging his followers to become more aggressive, more intolerant, more hateful, more divisive towards the “other side of the isle”. It was always his plan to “divide and conquer”, intentionally.

Patriots did not create this division. It was fomented by Obama in a deliberate effort to establish a grievance industry between the “Haves” and the “Have Nots”, to incite racial tension, and to entice all opposition into retaliations that could then be exploited by the left, using the media as his ideological delivery system. That is the true Obama legacy.

I only wish we could stop it and restore America back to the intentions of my fellow founders, a group of United States, with representatives of the people who truly serve to protect its citizens, bestows basic human rights to all men regardless of race, religion, sex, or creed, and offers opportunities for anyone to thrive.

Alinsky wrote, “From the moment the organizer enters a community he lives, dreams, eats, breathes, sleeps only one thing and that is to build the mass power base of what he calls the army.” [2]

(Paine):  How many U.S. Presidents have organized a 30,000 member group of political activists while in office?

ANSWER:  Just the one.  In fact, on his third day in office, Obama recruited and organized the Organizing for America (OFA) political action group, to which he appointed one of his campaign organizers as first Director.  Organizing for America was moved into and run by the Democratic National Committee to mobilize support for Obama’s policy agenda, and to campaign for re-election.  Supposedly separate from the DNC, and organized in all 50 states under national direction, the group filed for, and was granted tax-exempt status as a 501 (c)(4), “as long as it is not primarily involved in activity that could influence an election.”

WHAT?  Primarily?  I wonder if the activists had to document daily time sheets that were no more than 49% dedicated to campaigning?  Remember, it was run by the DNC and Obama’s hand-picked Director.  Tax status aside, the takeaway here is that he started this organization to push his socialist agenda, and it is still active today.

“Organizing for America is essentially a nation-wide lobby organization to promote and build support for Obama’s political agenda” [3]

“Organizing for America has provided logistical support to local community groups, including holding conference calls with volunteers, sponsoring events and house parties, using social networking and New Media, and providing talking points.” [4]

(Paine):  In other words, log in to the conference call and get your instructions.  You will be provided with the “proper” catch phrase on the issue of the week.  Have you noticed the collage-style video clips run by Fox News hosts with all the MSM talking heads echoing the same exact phrase?  That’s the propaganda machine regurgitating the message written and directed by the DNC, perhaps Obama himself.

Just recently, the Biden White House called several media outlets to the carpet, to pressure them into easing up on negative coverage due to his sinking approval ratings.  That sure seems like an Obama move.  Can we see the transcript of that phone conversation?

A newer version, rebranded in 2013, as Organizing for Action, refocused on OFA’s original mission, furthering Obama’s agenda.  He couldn’t just “ride off into the sunset” like every surviving President before him.  No, he believes he must direct the movement to complete his “fundamental transformation” of America into that “political paradise of communism” described by Alinsky.

(Paine):  If you know of any “political paradise” under communist rule that has ever existed in history, please let me know. 

Make no mistake, America as we have known it, is under attack.  It is happening right now.  It continues and escalates every day.  The DNC appears to be under the control of former President Obama.  It is his agenda that is progressing at an alarming pace.  Do you actually believe Joe Biden is running the country?  He can barely read a sentence off the teleprompter.  He’s a puppet being controlled by the “man behind the curtain.”

Their goal is to “fundamentally transform” America into a socialist nation, which will rapidly mutate into a communist nation.  They truly believe that the collective (government bureaucrats) must be in control of nearly aspect of life.  The individual is too stupid to care for himself/herself.  A massive bureaucracy must be in charge of everything in order to mold and shape society as they see fit, classic collectivism.  Nonconformists must be silenced and censored, a phenomenon we see more and more every week, with stories of prominent opponents having their social media accounts suspended by big tech oligarchs.  The “transformation” is in full swing.

Here’s another excerpt from Rules for Radicals;

“ORGANIZATION FOR ACTION will now and in the decade(s) ahead center upon America’s white middle class.  That is where the power is.   . . .

Activists and radicals, on and off our college campuses —people who are committed to change—must make a complete turnabout. With rare exceptions, our activists and radicals are products of and rebels against our middleclass society. All rebels must attack the power states in their society. Our rebels have contemptuously rejected the values and way of life of the middle class. They have stigmatized it as materialistic, decadent, bourgeois, degenerate, imperialistic, war-mongering, brutalized, and corrupt.” [5]

(Paine):  If I didn’t know better, I’d swear Obama wrote that.  He even named the 2013 version of his army almost exactly the same as Alinsky’s.  If you recall, Obama’s campaign slogan was “Hope and Change”.  What most people don’t realize is, he sees himself as the Supreme Commander of a revolution of his own creation, attacking the status quo, relentlessly proposing the transfer of wealth, from the “Haves” to the “Have Nots”, and establishing a communistic society.  That’s the “change”. If these radicals are so desperate for change, why don’t they start a GoFundMe campaign and buy their own island where they can live their own socialist utopia? True American patriots like this country just the way it was founded.

He says whatever he needs to say to make the “Have Nots” think they have “hope”, but hasn’t delivered any meaningful results.  He had 8 years as the most powerful man in the world.  How much better is life on the south side of Chicago now?  Or anywhere?

The Socialist Agenda of Alinsky and Obama: Part I

Thomas Paine: American Philosopher, & Revolutionary

From 1776 through the formation of The Constitution I helped create America. Now I have returned to help save America. Please join my Facebook group American Patriots in a free and open discussion to further the cause of FREEDOM.  


The parallels between these two men is so deep, I’ve broken it up into two parts, giving a brief bio of Alinsky and some excerpts from his most famous work.  I’ve added a few comments along the way. 

Saul D. Alinsky (1909-1972), American “community activist” and political theorist, wrote a book titled, Rules for Radicals, a book about how to successfully run a movement for change.  His goal was to create a guide for future community organizers, to use in uniting low-income communities in order for them to gain by any means necessary social, political, legal, and economic power. [1]

(Paine):  We saw that “plan” in action every day for the entire summer of 2020 in Seattle, Minneapolis, and other cities, as rioters (pardon me, “mostly peaceful protesters”) converged on areas of their respective cities, to burn and loot without repercussion, as officials stood down under orders from “authorities”.  Organized groups like Antifa and BLM committing crimes in plain sight, on video, gaining social power “by any means necessary”, a favorite catch-phrase of the left. 

Alinsky was active in Chicago in the 40’s, organizing groups like the Back of the Yards Neighborhood Council (BYNC), and the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), through which he focused on the training of community organizers.

He remained at the forefront of revolutionary change during the tumultuous 60’s, inserting himself into the Rochester Race Riot of 1964, pressuring the community and it’s largest employer, Kodak, to open up employment and city governance to better opportunities for African Americans. [2]

In Rules for Radicals, from The Prologue, Alinsky opens the book with this line;

“THE REVOLUTIONARY FORCE today has two targets, moral as well as material. Its young protagonists are one moment reminiscent of the idealistic early Christians, yet they also urge violence and cry, ‘Burn the system down!’ They have no illusions about the system, but plenty of illusions about the way to change our world.” [3]

He goes on, “Dostoevski said that taking a new step is what people fear most. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and chance the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution.   . . .   A revolutionary organizer must shake up the prevailing patterns of their lives— agitate, create disenchantment and discontent with the current values, to produce, if not a passion for change, at least a passive, affirmative, non-challenging climate.” [4]

(Paine):  Tell me that doesn’t sound like Obama – from the victim/grievance attitude to “create disenchantment”, and a “passion for change”.

In the chapter titled, The Purpose, he starts out, “WHAT FOLLOWS IS for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be.  The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away.” [5]

Further, under The Ideology of Change, Alinsky said,

“The prerequisite for an ideology is possession of a basic truth. For example, a Marxist begins with his prime truth that all evils are caused by the exploitation of the proletariat by the capitalists. From this he logically proceeds to the revolution to end capitalism, then into the third stage of reorganization into a new social order or the dictatorship of the proletariat, and finally the last stage—the political paradise of communism.” [6]

(Paine): Democrats can’t wait to arrive at their delusional “political paradise of communism”.

Under Class Distinctions: The Trinity, he wrote,

“Mankind has been and is divided into three parts: the Haves, the Have-Nots, and the Have-a-Little, Want Mores. On top are the Haves with power, money, food, security, and luxury. They suffocate in their surpluses while the Have-Nots starve. Numerically the Haves have always been the fewest. The Haves want to keep things as they are and are opposed to change.”

He goes on, “On the bottom are the world’s Have-Nots. On the world scene they are by far the greatest in numbers. They are chained together by the common misery of poverty, rotten housing, disease, ignorance, political impotence, and despair; when they are employed their jobs pay the least and they are deprived in all areas basic to human growth.  . . .   They hate the establishment of the Haves with its arrogant opulence, its police, its courts, and its churches. Justice, morality, law, and order, are mere words when used by the Haves, which justify and secure their status quo.

. . .  Between the Haves and Have-Nots are the Have-a-Little, Want Mores—the middle class. Torn between upholding the status quo to protect the little they have, yet wanting change so they can get more, they become split personalities. They could be described as social, economic, and political schizoids.” [7]

Rule No. 5 of Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals is;

 “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.  It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule.  Also, it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.” [8]

(Paine):  Remind you of anything the DNC and the media employs today?  They run that play like Vince Lombardi ran the power sweep.  We know they are going to run it.  They know we know they are going to run it.  And they know we can’t stop it because anyone who mentions it is vilified even further. 

Ridicule is the “bread and butter” play of the MSM propaganda campaign, constantly brainwashing their viewers that conservatives are nothing more than a “basket of deplorables”, a collection of uneducated racist hillbillies, implying that they hold some sort of moral superiority on the topic of discussion.  The infuriating part is that they overstate their own “authority” and hold the “bully pulpit”, the platform from which all this egregiously offensive behavior emanates.

It is the duty of true American patriots to speak out at every opportunity on any available outlet that the garbage being fed to unsuspecting consumers of “fake news” is pure propaganda.  Get involved.  Research the issues and critically analyze what the “right thing to do” should be in terms of adhering to the Constitution and our founding documents.  Typically, you’ll find that virtually every proposal the DNC comes up with is anti-American, and requires a transition towards communism.

SIDEBAR:  Antifa is an international organization whose name implies they are “anti-fascist”, yet they demonstrate fascist tactics on a regular basis.  They are in fact, self-contradictory 

Alinsky’s biographer, Sanford Horwitt, credits Alinsky “more than anybody . . . for demonstrating that community organizing could be a lifelong career.”  Horwitt saw the influence that Alinsky had on Barack Obama’s work in Chicago as Director of the Developing Communities Project (DCP) from June 1985 to May 1988. [9]

As you will see in Part 2, those influences developed into much more than mere community organizing.  Obama used many of Alinsky’s principles to attack the foundations of America, not by circumstance, but by design.
