The mental disorder of liberalism is becoming more and more violent as young skulls full of mush are filled with delusions of righteousness fighting evil.  Millions of Americans are infected with the sickness of liberalism, and not just the sickness of greed and envy, not just the sickness of self-righteous hypocrisy, but the sickness of delusional hate.  Liberalism is the ideology of believing in lies to the point of being willing to murder people over them.  Radical resistance is the tactics of leftist socialist black shirt fascists of Mussolini and the brown shirt fascists of Hitler and the proletariat bomb-throwing Bolsheviks of Marx.  The shrill irrational screeching of Democrats exemplifies all that is wrong with leftist politics.  Abortion, global warming, Russian collusion, rape trains, tax cuts for the rich, welfare, socialist tax theft, Islam, atheism, and foreign invasion.  Everything they believe is a lie and they are not willing to hear the truth.  These people are neither decent human beings nor civilized.  The sickness of the anti-civilization ideology of the left has not only severely damaged the mentality of borderline psychotics to make them raving lunatics.  Ignorant young people who have not been educated are easily duped into believing whatever they are told, and Democrats want to give these young simpletons the vote.  They deceive them with their lies and young fools follow them blindly like the Pied Piper of Hamlin.  Liberals are becoming more hysterical, more irrational, and more violent.  Not because they are seeing their rights taken away, but because they are losing the power to take away the rights of others, and that is what leftist control freaks live for.  Leftism is about having power over others and being willing to lie, cheat, steal, and kill to get it.  That is why the righteous are referred to as the right and the lying thieves are referred to as the left because they are always wrong.  Democrat leftists declare the innocent guilty until proven innocent.  In their deranged minds they believe the Christians to be the Nazis and themselves to be angelic without sin.  There is no other way to describe this except as being the mental disorder of mythomania; a person who believes their own lies.  There is not providing proof of reality to them as they don’t accept the truth.  This entire episode is not about truth, quality, or facts.  This is not just about dirty politics.  It’s about leftist Nazis vs. righteous Christians with the Nazis believing they are acting as Christians and that the Christians are the Nazis.  It is the mirrored world of liberal delusions and there is no escape for the mindless control freaks immersed in them.  There is only their rage and hate and the violence that comes of it.  When a righteous person tries to explain the truth to them they respond by declaring that person has no right to free speech.  This is the evil that America is up against and will either beat down in November or be consumed by.

The radicalism of today’s Democrat Party is not limited to tactics. It goes directly to its core ideology.  Today’s Democrat Party is the party of identity politics, open borders, and globalism.  A party that once championed economic security for all Americans, regardless of skin color or religion, now peddles in specialized appeals to blacks, Latinos, women, gays, migrants, and Muslims.  Long before identity politics and post-national globalism became the Democrat Party’s anchor, the most radical Leftist fringe group, the Weathermen, laid out their strategy for socialist revolution in America: Divide Americans along racial, ethnic, and gender lines; downplay national citizenship; erase the border; teach people to identify as members of a (transnational) race, ethnicity, or gender, rather than as American citizens or individuals.  The Weathermen grew out of the student protests of the 1960s, when Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) opposed racism, the Vietnam War and military research and recruiting on college campuses.  The SDS became increasingly anti-American, anti-capitalist and pro-communist in its ideology.  The organization split up, with one faction, the Weather Underground, calling for revolution through “armed struggle.”  To this end, they bombed government buildings, police stations and robbed banks.  The members of the group, which included Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, went “underground” to avoid arrest.  In 1970, four Weathermen died making the bombs they planned to use to commit mass murder at a reception for recruits at Fort Dix, New Jersey.  In 1974, the Weather Underground published its manifesto, “Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism.”  In more than 100 pages of often turgid Marxist prose, Ayers, Dohrn, and fellow radicals presenteda concrete analysis of the particular conditions of our time and place,” their neo-Marxist ideology, and theirstrategy for anti-imperialism and revolution inside the imperial U.S.  Classical Marxist theory says the “industrial proletariat,” would lead the revolution to overthrow capitalism.  When the American working class built a good life under capitalism, the Weathermen needed to a new “working class” for their revolution.  The Weathermen identified a “new working class” of Blacks, Hispanics, women, students, and Third World people.  Proletarian internationalism” is Weather-talk for global Communism (communist globalism).  The Weathermen fancied themselves fighting alongside the Viet Cong, Palestinian terrorists, Mao’s China, and all “Third World movements opposing Western imperialism.”  This worldwide fight against “imperialism”, “think globally, act locally” fused identity politics and globalism.  Race, ethnicity, and gender transcend borders, and so does “the struggle” for socialism.  Leftists see Latinos living in Pennsylvania not as American citizens but rather as members of a global class of all Spanish-speaking people on earth, what the Weathermen called “the whole class.”  The New Left’s embrace of “anti-imperialist” globalism established an ideological frame that pre-disposed the college-educated Democrats led by President Clinton to support so-called free trade agreements such as NAFTA and China’s admission to the World Trade Organization.  These deals moved American manufacturing jobs and entire industries to the Third World, in the process destroying the (largely) “white industrial proletariat” that had “seldom exercised its revolutionary initiative,” as the estimation of the radicals.  The Weathermen believed that focusing on the United States was a distraction from what is properly understood as a global “struggle” for social justice.  This fits neatly with the Democrats’ affinity for open borders, refuse to set any limits on the number of refugees, asylum seekers and immigrants, legal or illegal.  The Weather radicals also saw women leading the Marxist revolution alongside blacks and “Third World peoples”.  The goal of the women’s movement wasn’t equal pay, paid family leave, #BelievetheSurvivors, or even “there aren’t enough women bosses,” as Barack Obama said in a recent speech.  The women’s movement was about “overturning the entire structure” of the capitalist patriarchy.  The Weathermen’s rallying cry for women: “Let us extend our sisterhood… to the women in Palestinian refugee camps, to the dispossessed women in Puerto Rico, and to the women in prison here.  This is the clearest expression of the Leninist united front strategy, now known as intersectionality: women, Palestinian refugees, Puerto Ricans, prisoners, blacks, gays, Third World migrants are all in the same fight against capitalism!  Of the middle class, the Weatherman decreed, “their consciousness must be changed” made “woke,” and intersectionality the way to change it.  Class consciousness” has become wokeness, “interpenetration” has become intersectionality,  David Hogg and “Students Demand Action” fill the “youth consciousness” niche once occupied by long-haired, drug-taking college students in the salad days of the Baby Boomers, and “cultural identity” is now the most important element in radicalizing “the masses.”  What seems to be a fresh, novel insight for today’s activists is really nothing new.  When woke entertainers speak virtuously of being “global citizens,” or natter on about “the importance of race and gender,” when activists preach the “intersectionality” of “the struggles” of women, gays, Muslims, blacks, Hispanics and immigrants, they are mouthing the doctrines of the radical 1960s revolutionary Communists.  Weathermen Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn threw bombs and crafted a neo-Marxist ideology to further the revolution.  Today, they throw parties for Democrat politicians and the smart set at Hollywood soirees, Georgetown cocktail parties and the entire Democrat Party speak the lingo invented in a clandestine lair when the Left’s last great wave broke in America.  Some of the names may have changed, but they are not innocent.

(“The Radical Roots of Democratic Party Dogma” by Curtis Ellis dated October 10, 2018 published by American Greatness at https://amgreatness.com/2018/10/10/the-radical-roots-of-democratic-party-dogma/ )


America has always stood on a sturdy foundation of hard work, honesty, self-reliance, and a reverence for the individual as a creation of God Almighty.  American jurisprudence was founded on ancient Hebrew law and on Anglo-Saxon concepts of government.  America built its laws on the basis of the Ten Commandments.  Any civilization made up of people who largely govern themselves along those lines will be a free, peaceful, and prosperous nation.  Democrat policies are at odds with the entirety of these guidelines.  They have developed their own Decalogue and adhere to them with a vengeance:

1.      Thou shalt have no other gods but human power.  Winning elections is the Democrat raison d'être because power is their god; the party is their church; and its manifestation is large, centralized government.  The party may ask that Democrats lie, cheat, steal, destroy property, shoot baseball-players, or kill babies; all for the greater good: power.

2.      Thou shalt worship under the direction of these priests: Darwin, Alinsky, Spock, Marx, Dewey, and Sanger – to say nothing of Baal.  Child sacrifice is their sacrament.  All ideas counter to the thinking of these apostles must be mocked, blocked, and twisted.

3.      Thou shalt bow down to nothing wholesome or productive.  Kindness, genuine caring, duty, and honor are attributes to fake in order to win elections, but are never indulged with sincerity.  These values can clog with guilt many necessary actions for the required political fight to the death.

4.      Thou shalt demonstrate no respect for the universe as God's creation.  Good Democrats must see the Earth as fragile, purposeless, and a god itself.  Democrats may show up for church on Sunday, but they are not to take any of it seriously.

5.      Thou shalt destroy all vestiges of family.  Democrats believe in taxing citizens so intensely that both parents have to earn a wage.  Their public school curricula train children to revere government rather than parents.  Democrats champion sexual deviance and prepare children to indulge their sexuality from a young age.  They champion abortion at all stages of fetal development and deny the differences between the sexes to produce maximum societal confusion.  When the family fails, then government can take over.

6.      Thou shalt attack, provoke, ridicule, and kill whoever gets in your way.  Even when they don't physically kill their political opponents, they kill their livelihoods, their reputations, their families.  This commandment gives modern Democrats an excuse to run conservatives out of restaurants, out of theaters, out of their homes.  This commandment restricts any attempt their opponents can make to defend themselves.  Remember – winning is everything because winning brings power.

7.      Thou shalt have any kind of sex with whomever, whenever, and wherever.  Societal chaos and desperation open the door to government control – i.e., power.

8.      Thou shalt legalize theft by authorizing the government to steal.  Big government requires big money to bribe voters, to keep them dependent, to be able to import new voters. Law enforcement must be hamstrung so property crimes can't be enforced.  All ideas of private property must be squelched and socialism championed.

9.      Thou shalt bear false witness against thine enemies.  Make up elaborate stories of sexual deviance and financial malfeasance, of drunken orgies and high school shenanigans. Though they condone such behavior among themselves, they feign horror and outrage at the supposed missteps of their opposition.  They gum up the operations of government with allegations and erase all remembrance of innocence until proven guilty.

10. Thou shalt envy, covet, and indulge all jealous attitudes, hating anyone who has accumulated more wealth, more power, or more fame than you have.  Without envy, there is no discontent; Where there is no discontent, there is little need of government; Where there is little need of government, there is no accumulation of power; Where there is no accumulation of power, there is none for the party to grab and no wealth to pocket.

What we saw the Democrats do before, during, and after the Kavanaugh inquiry sobered up a lot of honest, honorable Americans because what we saw on display was grotesque. Without one word of testimony Democrats were spouting their "I believe her," decrees as if they were holy proclamations.  Most Americans are good people – generous and forgiving, honest and hardworking, earnest and dutiful.  What we saw was Democrats, both on the committee and around the edges, who were the opposite of everything we have been proud of as a nation.  The Democrat adherence to these leftist directives, these ancient pagan mandates, proved to be too ugly to watch.  No doubt, decent Democrats all over the nation looked in that national mirror and were as horrified as the rest of us were.  The voting booth is the only way we have to wash that venomous taste from our mouths.

(“The Democratic Ten Commandments” by Dee Chadwell dated October 7, 2018 published by American Thinker at https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2018/10/the_democratic_ten_commandments.html )


The Republican Party values and platform have increasing resonance with non-white communities.  The conservative principles offer a positive, uplifting way forward for all Americans, including all minorities alike.  Regardless of your background, hard work, a good heart, and a commitment to a positive set of values will help you succeed in life here in the United States.  While individuals may define success differently at times, devoting yourself to these universal principles can help you keep on a straight path, be financially self-reliant, provide a better life for your children, and achieve happiness in American society.  This empowering message is rarely conveyed to non-whites here in the U.S.  While our fellow citizens want what is best for their families and lives, they are being denied many of the uplifting lessons and measures that conservative principles offer, such as: 

  Equal opportunities for all, regardless of one's skin color or socioeconomic status. 

  Free enterprise. 

  Limiting the scope and activity of a more responsive government. 

  Fiscal responsibility and business-friendly values, such as limiting the tax burden on hardworking families, small businesses, and others.  

  Respect for human life, dignity of each person, as well as freedom, faith, and family. 

Many of these freedoms are disallowed, suppressed, or simply not available to people in other nations where corruption is rife, the law is arbitrarily enforced, and "might makes right" is the standard approach to governance.  As Americans, we must continue to cherish, uphold, and protect these blessings, never becoming complacent or unmindful of their value.

The Democrats have done lasting damage to the Senate confirmation process and to the very decency that has symbolized our Constitutional Republic for centuries with their reprehensible 11th hour smear campaign against a good man, Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  The reprehensible tactics employed by Democrats in the Senate of the ends justifying the means and the politics of personal destruction all failed.  Millions of reasonable hardworking American taxpayers have now had their eyes opened to the chaos the left has in store for our country if they take over the House of Representatives this November.  The Democrat-led Kavanaugh destruction campaign has activated the 2016 Trump coalition and injected it with get out the vote steroids.   There is an army of American patriots poised to send yet another message to the liberal swamp creatures poisoning the halls of Congress with their venom.  The Brett Kavanaugh effect has been set into motion.  The American people now know that Trump derangement syndrome is real and has taken over the thought process on the left.  Because of their hatred, the leaders of the anti-Trump movement are making strategic mistakes.  The decision to smear Judge Kavanaugh is exhibit one.  This disastrous political move has united Trump voters, establishment Republicans and independents at the worst possible time for the unhinged Democrat machine.  The shameful Kavanaugh saga has exposed the central tenet in the Democrat platform for 2018:  Chaos.  The Democrat Party has officially become the party of chaos and its leaders are hoping the American people aren’t paying close attention.  If given majority status, the angry mob led by Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Maxine Waters could begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump and Justice Kavanaugh based on mob rule.  The new McCarthyism being promulgated by radical leftists marks a dangerous time for our American Republic.  This midterm election is like no other.  We’ve never had a political phenomenon like Donald Trump in the White House and we’ve never seen a thoroughly crazed resistance trying to destroy a president and everyone around him at all cost.  These Democrats would do harm to their own country if it meant taking down President Trump in the process.  The Democrats are offering the American people chaos and President Trump and the Republicans are offering more hope, growth and prosperity.  Next month, a new coalition of people who love their country and its ideals must join together and vote against chaos and rage that has taken over the Democrat Party.  We must have record turnout in the coming midterm election in favor of the leadership that is busy making America great again, and I’m optimistic that this can happen!

Hysterical women ranting that women “must be believed” suspend logic and reason, residing in an alternative universe where a vagina acts not as a reproductive organ, but as a determiner of truth.  Back here in the real world, women lie all the time: They lie about love; They lie about sex; They lie about money; They lie about violence inflicted upon them and the violence they inflict upon others; and They even lie about who the father of their children may or may not be.  Women are not only adept at lying, but also at manipulation and deceit.  To say women must be believed simply because they are women is, in fact, a big lie and a brilliant deceit, a manipulation to obtain unassailable power.  Any trip to a criminal court in America will reveal lying women.  Women use threats of domestic violence charges to control and manipulate men.  Ask any prosecutor or any defense attorney in any county in the country and they will assure you that not only do women lie all the time, they’re great at it.  When women get caught is a lie, they often resort to Plan B: crying.  Often the crying stems from the fact she got caught lying.  As much as woman lie in criminal court, it’s only the warm up round for family court.  They lie about violence to gain an advantage in custody battles.  They lie about sexual assault to limit and control a father access to their children.  They lie about child support and money they’ve received.  They file fake restraining orders to gain a tactical advantage to secure possession of the home.  Anyone who says we must believe her because she’s a woman needs to have a talk with any family law judge in America.  Everything said above about women lying can be said with as much force about men.  Men lie for the same reasons women lie: To gain a strategic advantage; To save face; To exact revenge; or To secure an economic advantage.  Men and women lie for the myriad of reasons that people have lied since the dawn of time.  Because men and women lie, we have developed a legal process to discern lies from exaggerations, omissions, misinterpretation of events, and fantasy from the truth.  It’s called due process and, coupled with longstanding rules of evidence, it’s pretty good and winnowing out most of the truth from most of the fiction most of the time. Abandoning these standards for a platitude that someone must be believed because they have a vagina, is the slippery slope into madness.  

(“Vaginas Do Not Work Like truth Serum” by Joseph Scalia dated October 7, 2018 published by American Greatness at https://amgreatness.com/2018/10/07/vaginas-do-not-work-like-truth-serum/ )


The U.S. economy is the strongest in the world and it shows no signs of slowing down. The unemployment rate dropped to 3.7%, the lowest since 1969.  Among Hispanics and Latinos, the unemployment rate was only 4.5%, the all-time lowest level in history, while among African Americans, the unemployment rate was 6.0%, near the record low.  Not only are people finding work, but Americans are earning more.   With more jobs being created, fewer people need food stamps.  Currently, over 39 million Americans are on food stamps, a decrease of 4 million since the beginning of the Trump presidency.  Americans are feeling good about the economy at exactly the right time with the holiday season approaching.  The consumer confidence index hit an 18-year high. With consumer spending accounting for 70% of the overall economic activity, this is an important factor in why the economy is doing so well.  These positive indicators are not a coincidence; they are the result of the President’s economic policies.  Fueled by tax cuts and the lifting of onerous regulations, businesses are hiring Americans in record numbers.  The National Federation of Independent Business association reported that the Optimism Index in August soared to an all-time high, eclipsing a record set in 1983 during the Reagan economic boom.  The nation’s gross domestic product soared 4.2% in the last quarter, averaging more than 3% for the year, surpassing the highest total in any year of the Obama presidency.  After months of negotiations, President Trump announced a new trade deal with Mexico and Canada, updating the flawed NAFTA agreement. In response, the stock market hit record highs.  The new trade deal will also be a major boon for U.S. manufacturers.  According to a new survey from the National Association of Manufacturers, 93% of members predict additional growth and over 91% are optimistic about the future.  These results are among the very best the organization has recorded in its 20-year history.  Fortunately, the growth has been focused on the private sector.  In the federal workforce, the Trump administration has trimmed 16,000 jobs since the beginning of the President’s term in January of 2017.  Usually, Americans vote their pocketbook during election time.  With strong economic growth, it is not surprising that the latest Rasmussen poll showed the President with an approval rating of 51%, his highest level since March of last year.  With additional tax cuts, stronger trade deals and an enhanced effort to limit illegal immigration, the nation’s economy should continue to grow under President Trump’s policies over the next two years.  The outlook through 2020 is amazingly strong according to Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome H. Powell.  The key to maintaining such “extraordinary times” will be for these positive economic policies to continue.  Hopefully, American voters will recognize what is happening and reward the President by keeping the U.S. Congress under the control of the Republican Party in the mid-term elections.
