Elitist Leftist Will Destroy America

 

The elitists who lead the far left and other dedicated followers by the nose promising that they will feel great about themselves and have great feelings of self worth and superior morality will never destroy the United States, they will just destroy America making it simply the U. S. and never again the U.S.A. The main difference is the form of government and how it is chosen and allowed to govern. America is a bottom up system where the majority of powers are at the town, city, county and district level and the least power over the people’s lives is in Washington D.C. This brings the power closer to the people and allows for ever solution to represent the people over which it will be utilized. The elitist leftists desire that their infinite wisdom over how everyone must live their lives believe in a top down system where by the time you get to local government, their only job is to follow orders and implement what Washington D.C. has dictated to them through the State governments. These are the people who control the Deep State and who have been running the Federal Government since President Lyndon Baines Johnson used the assassination of President John F. Kennedy to pass the most massive alteration of power and society since President Franklin D. Roosevelt passed the New Deal, thus President Johnson naming his legislative behemoth the Great Society was quite apropos. From that point forward, every ensuing government, whether Democrat or Republican, placed additional power into the Federal Government and the inside tracks were controlled by top level Civil Servants who were immune from being fired and whose lease on power dates back to those initially hired top people under President Johnson. When President Jimmy Carter opened the Federal Department of Education, he chose the top people, all progressives. President Ronal Reagan arrived; he attempted to scale government back, so this champion of the people who wished to empower them did nothing to change the power structure of the bureaucracy. The following Presidents Bush-Clinton-Bush were all big government progressives and only built additional layers with the same people at the top running the now almost all powering Deep State and the plan was all but complete. All that was required was for certain departments to be flushed with cash such that their budgets would almost double. This was accomplished by the first three years of President Obama and then his remaining five years were used to allow these new levels of government funding to become normal all while claiming to have capped spending. It is easy to cap spending after almost doubling the debt and the size of funding initially.

 

Deep State

Deep State

 

This finished the construction of the behemoth we call the Deep State and unless Congress will allow President Donald Trump to fire civil service workers, the Deep State will easily survive his time in office and all that he cuts can be reinstated by the next progressive, be they Republican or Democrat, to take the White House. Some of you are demanding that we name any Republicans who would be almost as horrible, as the most leftist Democrat such as Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Hillary Clinton from wherever, and Nancy Pelosi of California. Well, why not try Jeb Bush of Florida, Mitt Romney formerly of Massachusetts now from Utah, Marco Rubio also from Florida and a host of other establishment Republicans. The Republican Party standard is currently that they are somewhat less progressive than the Democrats. President Trump is an outlier who did not pass through the political grinding mechanisms which turn once proud individualist powering the people leaders such as Jim Bridenstine from Oklahoma’s First District who will not be in Congress long as he proved resistant to the reshaping mechanisms by which such great leaders are made from men to mice, so Jim Bridenstine has instead been nominated to head up NASA, a dream of his that he cannot resist. Those they cannot make mad, they transfer out. President Trump is an anti-progressive but unless permitted to fire top civil servants, all the trimming he does will be for naught. The people at the top promote like-minded people such that the system cannot be changed and it will always keep its elitist leftist outlook led by elites hand chosen from within by the former elites. That is the horror of the Deep State, it is self perpetuating unless a President with the gumption to take them on is provided the weapons to do just that, and that would require making some alterations to the Civil Service and allow the President to fire civil servants, specifically those above grade level twelve, in other words, the leaders and the head of the beast. The only other means would be to start chopping off entire departments starting with Education and working oneself back to the original sized Cabinet that President George Washington started with, namely the Department of State, the Department of the Treasury, and the Department of War (Defense Department). Just rid the Administration of all the rest of the fat and then trim these departments down to essential personnel and pick those top positions and make the best of it.

 

Instead of three departments, the current Administrative Departments number over or around twenty, and they are Executive Office of the President, Department of Agriculture, Department of Commerce, Department of Defense, Department of Education, Department of Energy, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of the Interior, Department of Justice, Department of Labor, Department of State, Department of Transportation, Department of the Treasury, Department of Immigration and Department of Veterans Affairs. We likely missed one or two but this is sufficient to show the growth since the start of the United States of America and how the America is being lopped-off. There is apparently at least one department covering virtually every aspect of life and through which these areas are outside of the people’s control. What makes matters even more serious is that the Congress no longer sets policy nor do they craft real laws. The legislation passed by the Congress and signed by Presidents lays out the results they desire and then leaves the nuts and bolts for enacting these results to the various Secretaries of Departments they view as required to establish the needed filler and often they end the bills with a small aside allowing for the inclusion of all other departments determined to be needed to comply with the aims of this legislation. That is card-blanche for permitting these pieces of legislation to be passed through every department with each permitted to write regulations, which are enforced as if they were laws, which they feel they need and can claim are attached to accomplishing the aims of the legislation. That is right, the Deep State writes the particulars and actual enforceable parts to the legislation as they see fit. This means that the Deep State actually defines the laws of the land to fit their desires and not those of the President or the Congress who only get to suggest ideas, not enact them. All of the Deep State could be avoided if the Congress would actually write the entirety of the laws and not leave anything up for determination by the Deep State thus cutting them out of the process. The only other means is to have a Constitutional Amendment requiring for Congress to vote on each regulation and the President to sign them before they are enacted. Such an amendment will never come through the Congress, as they really prefer not to have to think or actually work. The unfortunate reality is the United States is ruled by the Deep State and until the entirety of the government in Washington D.C. is dismantled, everybody fired, and started over, preferably with just five departments, State, Treasury, Defense (the original three), Judicial, Transportation, Import-Export (instead of Commerce) and Border Security (replacing Homeland Security, Immigration). Make it that no new departments can be formed without the agreement by three-quarters of the states which must be acquired within ten years of the initial petition with no extensions permitted.

 

The Deep State was something designed by the political elite from probably the brain trust of President Kennedy and the Great Society designed by President Johnson. The reality is it might actually for back to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt with his New Deal or even to Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft and Woodrow Wilson, the trio who make up the start of the progressive movement in the United States and the eventual end of America. The whole idea behind progressivism is that there exist within a society a group of highly educated, supremely intelligent and very self-assured individuals who know better how you should live your life than do you. Thus, these individuals are placed atop the society, ensconced within the government in positions of great power but untouchable and secured in their post such that they actually decide the rules and laws, not the elected officials such as the Congress and President as they are chosen by the rabble. These elites who run a bureaucracy which makes the actual applied laws also builds a structure so enormous and inefficient that it becomes impossible to separate the wheat from the chaff and thus they become secured atop a tangled menagerie of which no single human being can begin to understand the scope nor unravel the tangled array they find before them. In the end, and President Trump may end up realizing this before he actually does any damage to the real power holders, these elites choose their own replacements and lay just outside the reach of crusading politicians who promise to end the Deep State. This is how the United States will be run, as there are no people willing to brave the slings and arrows of outrageous misfortune which they would face if they even began to touch the Deep State power structure. The war has been lost and America has fallen and President Trump might be capable of saving her and restoring the United States of America, but he had better hurry, as time is a wasting. The Deep State is thus far winning in this epic battle but one thing we have seen is never underestimate the Donald, he might slay the beast yet, though we predict it would take a general uprising to reform the government now. We hope America survives as the United States without America is more to be feared than admired and America is more than simply worth saving, America is crucial to saving for the United States to be prevented from slipping to the “Dark Side of the Force.”

 

There is one last item, speech codes. Should hate speech legislation ever reach the claws of the Deep State, the war will be lost or need to go underground and be taken-on at great risk. Hate Speech Codes will prevent real discussion as only those terminologies approved by the Deep State will be permitted. It will be the Orwellian Newspeak from that point forward where words will start to disappear. There will be specific Deep State friendly language with which one may refer to ideas and some ideas will be taken from language. Freedom will mean slavery to the system, War will mean peace, and Ignorance will mean strength with other words also being redefined. Choice will mean obedience and Joy will mean compliance and such redefining of terminology. Nothing will remain of America once hate speech restrictions become law and part of the tangled web called regulations. Everyone will be required to check the new dictionary which will be on the Internet and the list of permitted words will grow smaller and the meanings more removed from what the old people remember. Already, in many schools there is no such thing as an individual grade as now everything is done in groups where the smartest children are spread around so every group has at least one and the group gets a group grade. This means that the smartest children will work and achieve a high grade for them and for every member of their group including the least gifted student in the class. This new theory for education is how everybody passes with a similar grade. This is being carried over into employers where everything becomes a team project where the great and the small are melded into a single entity and all rise and fall together. Refuse to work in the group, then you do not work period. And this system will be so ingrained from school that nobody will think this is strange or weird, working alone will be the odd idea. Newspeak and Newthink will rule in this coming world unless the people rise up and demand their control back and the system be rebooted from an original disk where only that utterly necessary to act according to the Constitution is retained and the rest of big government Deep State is broken up and distributed back to the states and down to the local elected board.

 

The measuring stick for the retooling of the government, it is right there in the Bill of Rights in Amendment X,

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

 

Unless the Constitution assigns a power to the Federal Government or specifically denies it to the individual states, then it belongs under State Rights to the individual States or, preferably, to the people themselves. That is the meaning, that the power belongs with the people and they allow certain items, particular items, to pass to the local government. The local government then can ask the next higher form of governance to take certain defined responsibilities. This eventually gives the individual states their areas and those beyond their means such as defending the country; these and only these are granted to the government in Washington D.C. The Congress and the President are only permitted the powers granted them by the Constitution or passed to them by the individual states. The states get their power from the lower governments who get their power from the people. If the people have not relinquished their power in an area, then the Federal Government has absolutely no right to administrate, regulate, or pass laws concerning that right. The power of the people is presumed absolute and that is the magic which defines America. We have no idea what defines the United States except it is not empowering the people, rather it is enslaving the individuality of the people, and that is going way too far.

Another Terror Attack, What Will it Take?

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 2:58 AM
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

 

New York just had yet another terrorist attack. This was definitely a homegrown relative incompetent with a pipe bomb, but he still managed to injure three with at least one fairly seriously. Granted there was a fourth victim but that was the terrorist whose device apparently detonated prematurely. What we here call a premature detonation whenever the terrorist goes boom and it was unplanned. That differentiates them from the suicide bombers who intend to blowup with their devices. The Palestinian Arab leaders made a claim once that Israeli security forces were decapitating suicide bombers because their heads were found separate from their legs, their torsos were rarely found at all, as they were mostly in very small pieces spread over a wide area. The absolute gall to make such a sick claim about often young people with mental difficulties or gullible youth who were brainwashed into the belief that they would have a corporeal existence with wine, grass fields of green, palm trees and their seventy-some perpetual virgins and other sexual delights in the next life. These kinds of monsters will never stop voluntarily as long as they can find others to carry out these deadly deeds, these lethal terrorist acts. Sometimes, if the attack is worthy, they will sacrifice themselves but they still require some others who are often not told the entire plan and allowed to believe they will survive the attack only to find out too late that there will be no returning from the attack. The terror attacks on Paris, London, New York and the others are just the trickle before the torrent that is coming. Wake-up people, these terrorists are just the introduction to the main events to come at a later date. The attacks will only grow in lethality and competence.

 

We have map showing the terror attacks year-by-year from 2001 through 2016 below. We took the information from the Tech Insider within Business Insider which displayed these United States maps within a World Map which is impressive as it is frightening. Those maps are worth a look-see. But the maps we took and enlarged depict a continuous string of terrorist acts in or around New York and the Washington D.C.-Philadelphia-New York-Boston corridor. This begs the question of how many or how frequently do these terror attacks have to become before the people demand the government put an end to your vulnerability? The only idea we could come to is that you thusfar are considering these acts of terror as infrequent enough and of such a nature as they do not rise above the common violences your cities have suffered already and you simply added this to street crimes. The only other explanation was that most of these terror attacks were classified as some other criminal act and not reported as terrorism and only later, possibly considerably later, were the people told the truth, that is if they were ever told the truth. If your reality has been hidden and disguised as something other than terrorism, well these maps provide the real picture and now you can act as informed people. We wish you best of luck with City Hall. (Article continues below maps)

We would like to look to the coming future for a while. The violence in the Middle East in general and Israel in particular, was at some point a terror attack every month within a sea of violence under British Rule where both Jew and Arab fought the British, sometimes even cooperating. Once it became apparent that the British were not going to prevent completely the formation of a Jewish State, the Arabs became more angered by that eventuality than British rule. That meant that some of the attacks, which had been carried out against the British, were now done against the Jews. Israel was declared a state and the 1948-9 War was initiated by the Arabs with six countries and numerous militias invading Israel on the morning of her birth and before she had established a military. The Jews call this their War of Independence despite it being an Arab War to Annihilate the Jews and Erase the Jewish State. The Jews and Arabs who fought as Israelis claim they won the war as they still existed, but the reality is they lost some of the lands west of the Jordan River, the Jordan River was the original eastern boundary. Egypt had possessed the Gaza Strip and Jordan possessed Judea and Samaria, which they gave a less Jewish sounding name of West Bank. The bias of the world and the media is made obvious by their use of the terminology “West Bank” as that simply furthers the lie that these lands were not part of Israel at dawn of May 15, 1948, according to international law and the recognized set boundary by the United Nations and most of the world including the United States, Britain and the Soviet Union. The world has attempted to forget that and to allow the Arab world to have an advantage in crushing the Jewish State from existence.

 

This is also why most of the terror attacks, if they are not able to spin them as part of the vital fight against the oppressor Israel by the unfortunate Arabs ignoring that the Arab League has backed the Palestinian struggle, as it is defined, with arms and supplies and the world has all but buried their leaders in gold through their funding of all efforts blindly. The terrorism rose continually with an uptick coming with the founding of the PLO in 1964. From that point the terror slowly crept higher and higher until with the onset of the Second Intifada in 2000 after Yasser Arafat ended negotiations and returned home waiting for any event on which to blame the Israelis for his already planned waves of violence designed to drive the Jews from Israel. He got his golden opportunity when Ariel Sharon visited the Temple Mount where he walked in the open areas and entered none of the buildings found there, especially not the al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock which were used as the instigation for the waves of suicide bombers, shootings, bombings and other terror activities. If you read the Al Jazeera version, you will note the Arab reports were he entered their sacred place defiling it by his presence. Their reasoning is they define even the open spaces as part of the Mosque in order to refuse Jews even entry onto the Holy Site of three religions. This violence which was leading to unacceptable violence and losses through deaths and maimed individuals, some being Druze, Arab, visitors from the world over, but mostly Jews as they were target one, led to the building of the Security Barrier which is mostly fencing, with well kept sand to register anyone crossing through the fence, as well as concrete walls where sniper fire had become a problem. The Security Barrier is the “wall” of oppression, which Arabs had sued in the Israeli Supreme Court and got it rerouted when it would have cut a farmer from his lands. Once constructed this barrier cut down on infiltrations and the related terrorism to almost nothing with the occasional terror attack. The world now calls this Security Barrier an “Apartheid Wall” demanding it be torn down so as to permit the free slaughter of Israelis to begin again. That is the actual reason for demands to remove this barrier, to permit the destruction of Israel just as the BDS Movement also is attempting to destroy Israel as they connect almost every Jewish company with their claims of using the Arab lands for their products and services because the entirety of Israel is considered occupied Arab lands to the leaders of these movements.

 

The story here is if you do not nip terrorism in the bud when it is little more than a nuisance, then with time it will become life threatening. Yes, the police claim they are preventing dozens of attacks that must remain secretive. Eventually they may be preventing hundreds or even thousands of attacks while the number of attacks which get through also rise proportionally leading to terror attacks on a weekly basis with a mass attack once or twice a month. The question you need ask is from where do the reasons and ideas come from for these terror attacks and at what point might New Yorkers in particular and the free world in general going to do something about these attacks. The vast majority of the terror attacks are attempts to force submission out of the Western Free World and have them submit to Islam and bow before Allah. These terror attacks will continue until Sharia with Imams holding all the positions of power in Government and all non-Muslims taking the position of Dhimmitude. This includes but is not limited to having no right to witness in courts of law (Sharia), Muslims using the sidewalk while non-Muslims use the gutters of the street, bowing so as to never appear taller than a Muslim, accepting degrading treatment from Muslims and a whole host of other fun things ending with the paying of the special non-Muslim tax, the Jiyza and eventually being given the choice of convert to Islam or die. This is the end which terrorists believe they are forcing you into through their acts. They also are granted a free pass into heaven no matter their former crimes and sins, and in an Islamic community, having sinned is their version of the Scarlet Letter.

Personal Observations of Reactions to Jerusalem Recognition

 

Amongst my friends and acquaintances the most used comment boils down to, “It is about time,” or similar comment. The next most stated idea was, “Wow, somebody finally noticed,” along with, “At last,” or similar sarcastic comment. But most of my friends and associates are relatively to extremely religious Israeli Jews, many from the English-speaking world as well as a good number of native Israelis. The reaction of my social circle was fairly even and supportive of the idea of the United States recognizing Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel and that President Trump added its historic importance as such was an added bonus. This did not alter the opinion of those amongst us who supported Hillary Clinton from still hoping Trump would be charged with some, any form of malfeasance, preferably one worthy of impeachment any more than it changed the minds of his supporters. The reaction in our little corner of Israel is generally that this was wonderful and that it was about time.

 

The most interesting and disconcerting commentaries have been those of the media. They appear claiming that the entire world, particularly the United States, Canada and Europe had best brace themselves readying for waves of Islamic terror attacks. The media have almost amplified the threats that recognizing the three thousand year history of Jerusalem being the Capital City for Israel. What is even more interesting is that Jerusalem has been the capital only of the Jewish people and no other have ever declared any actual importance to Jerusalem and most of the media has all but ignored that. Their specific focus has been to press the criticism that by recognizing a three-thousand plus year old reality, President Trump has painted a target on every American’s back making them specific targets because of his recognizing Jerusalem and starting the moving of the embassy there. We all watched some of the media coverage the other day and it was horrific. Believing the newscast one would believe that all of Israel was ignited in random and terrorist violence and that people were locked into their homes scared to go outside. In our little corner of Israel, not a blade of grass is out of place and life continues on unchanged, unaltered. The days after President Trump made his supposedly universe-altering proclamation appear unchanged from the days leading up to his announcement with only the brighter look on people’s faces and a new vigor in their steps. Have there been violent demonstrations? Sure, as many of you have seen on your televisions as have we.

 

Fortunately, these pictures on your television sets have been the exception, nowhere near the rule. Most lives in Israel remain unchanged, owed much to our blessings. The riotous demonstrations we saw were pretty much restricted to the Temple Mount and Old City neighborhoods as well as Bethlehem and other areas in Gaza, Judea and Samaria and even then restricted to Arab neighborhoods. There have been spotty reports of demonstrations in some of the Arab Israeli Cities in addition to the Arab regions previously reported. None of these were unexpected as Hamas, Hezballah, Fatah, PLO, the PA, and Islamic Jihad had agreed to have three days of rage. Once this had been announced, it really made little difference whether President Trump had made his expected speech as there would have been no stopping the Arab populations from committing to the rioting we have witnessed. One British Newspaper reported a sensationalized “protests sweep Muslim world.” Their reporting noted that possible thousands demonstrated in Amman, Jordan and Cairo, Egypt and a few other large Islamic cities, but the general firestorm had not erupted worldwide as predicted before the announcement. Factually, much of the explosive reactions to President Trump and his earth-shaking announcement have failed to materialize. Check the image below and see the pattern of terror attacks from 9/11 through to sometime in 2015 or 2016. After viewing this image, kindly explain how terrorism could actually be worse. The nation completely covered at the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea are Israel and Lebanon and the other heavy area is slightly but just as serious as it nearly covers Iraq. There continues to be terror attacks striking inside many of the areas covered by several attacks already as if you live in an area where terrorism had occurred, then those same areas are more likely to be struck by renewed violence. But as far as general mayhem throughout the globe, that will not be occurring.

 

Map of Terrorist Attacks in Europe Middle East and North Africa after 9/11

 

The reality is that the majority of the violence will be restricted to predominantly Islamic regions and neighborhoods. This is both an unfortunate and, in another way, a fortunate result. The unfortunate result is that the Arab and Muslim worlds will erupt into violence over one nation recognizing one of the oldest surviving capital cities, Jerusalem. Let us think about the concept that Tel Aviv is the real capital city of Israel. The nation of Israel is a three-thousand year old concept with her capital as Jerusalem since before 1000 BCE and which existed for a thousand years while Paris, London, Berlin and Washington D.C. were all swamplands or forests, completely undeveloped or, at best, a small village. Not only had Jerusalem existed but was one of the major cities where a number of trade routes interconnected making it an important city. King David was the second King of a united Hebrew, Jewish State who moved the Capital City from Hevron, and Jerusalem remained the capital of the Jewish people ever since. That is over three-thousand years. Jerusalem is mentioned throughout the Jewish Bible, more than any other holy book. The Old City of Jerusalem has buildings older than the United States while the western areas of Jerusalem are a modern and vital city with modern buildings and commodities which leads to quite a vital difference. You have shops from the Shuk with its open booths to a modern three level mall with everything one would expect from a modern mall. Jerusalem is definitely the city where one can find everything, be it old or new, and depicts the difference that is Israel, an ancient land with some of the most amazing and newest innovations and inventions from cell phones to cherry tomatoes. Meanwhile, Tel Aviv was founded on April 11, 1909, which makes it one-hundred-eight and a half years, just a little younger than Jerusalem itself by just over three-thousand years. Quite a disparity and one which really gives Jerusalem and her claim as capital of Eretz Yisroel a slight advantage and we are glad to accept the United States in joining our reality even if it took a controversial President to drag them forward to recognize the past.
