Of Democrats and Republicans and Any Difference

 

The two party system has failed the people of the United States yet many are unable to see this. This problem is partly responsible for the election of President Trump and the other half of the problem was represented perfectly by Hillary Clinton. That was what made the last election so very important. Hillary Clinton represented the idea that everything was working satisfactorily while Donald Trump represented change for the sake of repairing the problems in Washington. Looking at the election through this filter and it becomes obvious why the election turned out the way it did. The interesting thing is that the people have not given up on the two parties or the idea of their representing two separate choices and this election finally offered a choice. The problem does not exist at the local level as at this point the two parties are true to their core constituencies, one appealing to the more rural people and the other to the city dwellers. But as one rises in the two parties, they go through a metamorphosis or they will fail at the State-wide or National level. At these points, one need simply serve the future as it is painted by the elite leadership of both parties, and they actually agree. The core leadership at the national level of both parties and their representatives in Congress and in the White House are big government, progressive, centralized power, influence peddlers. This is the reason that President Trump is so viscerally hated by the leadership of both parties. This was part of the reason why the Diversity Visa Program continued under differing names from the 1970’s and is still up and running today. Part of the proof was the recent Manhattan terrorist attack which was carried out by a person who arrived in 2010 under this program from Uzbekistan.

 

Many ask how long it has been that the American public has, in reality, had no real choice for President. The answer becomes obvious when one traces the race for the Presidency since Ronald Reagan, the last President where the people had a choice until this past election. We had President George H. W. Bush, William Jefferson Clinton, George W. Bush, Barrack Obama, and in this past election, the choice was planned on being Hillary Clinton against Jeb Bush. Is anyone getting the picture here? Donald Trump won the Republican primary system exactly because he was somebody everyone could recognize and felt they knew who appeared to be the only real anti-candidate, the outsider who was anything but a normative politician. Trump represented a change if you believed what he was saying. What was more surprising than what he was saying was that once elected he started doing what he had promised; proof he was not a normative politician. Let us look into how the system actually works.

A person enters politics at the local level. Here they are trained on the buzzwords and how to present themselves to win the love and support of a majority of the people in their area. As they climb the ladder they modify their original wordings some small amount to gratify a larger audience, but their core message remains the same. Their actions, on the other hand, start to transform or they remain at the local level. The more one rises in the ranks, the more they become beholden to people in the major metropolises and the less they care about the individual voter. Their interests change and they start to serve different masters. These masters are the main contributors to both parties, which leads both parties to represent the same big moneyed interests as the same moneyed interests are buying the influence of both parties. By the time they make it to Washington D.C., the politician has been transformed, mostly, to a corporate sponsored tool or they become outcasts who will be rejected by their party and should they continue to win there are other ways or pushing them aside. Take Oklahoma’s First District Representative Jim Bridenstine, a real upstart who loyally represents the people and has had the party try and unseat him in every primary since he won the seat. They have failed, as his electorate is awake. The system still works as Jim Bridenstine has been nominated by President Trump to be the new top man at NASA, and he would be a perfect fit even if Tulsa Oklahoma would be losing a great Representative. That is the other means of keeping the Congress controlled, give the odd candidate who cannot be defeated their dream job, but only after they have served long enough to have the golden-parachute retirement guaranteed all the members of the Congressional Societal Group.

 

This thinning of the herd such that only the big government progressives make their way to Washington D.C. is done by plans and methods and by the money. Where the Congress passes legislation every few years presumably to take the money out of politics, they actually only rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic and everything continues steaming full-speed for the iceberg. Each new refreshing of the way the money must flow to reach the candidates serves only one purpose, to make it appear that this money is further away from the candidates and to obscure the truth that they have all largely been bought and paid for by the same money. It is as close as one can get to their being one large pile of cash and everybody is at the same feeding trough being paid by the same people to complete their preferred legislation and forget the small people who elected them. Once we all realize this it is easier to understand such actions as the recent antics of Senator John McCain and company or the call by Chuck Schumer for President Trump to do something to make the vetting of people immigrating to the United States more selective after blocking every proposed change to the system President Trump has already proposed. Schumer was simply grandstanding for the media such that he was on record opposing allowing letting terrorists into the country when he really is partially responsible just as are all the others for the current system. Schumer, the Democrat Representative from New York, was actually the person who sponsored the Diversity Visa Program under which the terrorist entered the country, and that legislation was signed into law by Republican President George H. W. Bush in 1990. There was your bipartisan effort to undercut the unity of the country by bringing in hundreds of thousands leading to millions of people with backgrounds completely foreign to the Judeo-Christian base of the United States. This is one of the main objectives of the moneyed interests as this provides them with inexpensive labor and an easily manipulated electorate.

 

The other main problem is that these moneyed interests mostly are not just people interested in the success of the United States, just the opposite. Many of these people are international in nature and have only a world government as their preferred goal. There are a few problems which prevent their success in their efforts; the United States is the biggest of these problems. The one name when it comes to politics and money almost everybody can recognize is also the best person to prove of what we speak. That person is George Soros who stated in his book ‘The Age of Fallibility: The Consequences of the War on Terror’ (2006), “The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States.” We have provided a video of George Soros discussing his book below. He is far from the only internationalist who believes that the United States is preventing any progress towards a World Governance which was the original idea behind allowing any government so choosing to join the United Nations. This was the idea behind the Common Market and the European Union it eventually produced. Other efforts in this general arena of a World Governance include but are not limited to, the World Courts in Geneva, the World Trade Organization, World Health Organization, World Bank, International Atomic Energy Agency, INTERPOL and for a list of other international agencies and organization one can look here. As is obvious, the world has been either tied into large units or covered universally by subjects. Another side to these efforts would be to start the unification projects by unifying many of the similar NGO’s and Agencies into one central agency for each general area rather than the splintering which has been the practice. Looking over the list of international agencies one could surmise that in some instances, these are simply divisive tactic or, even more simply, they are nothing more than a means to provide employment for far too many people getting their higher degrees by choosing the world crusade which they desire to follow. If you desire to save the world through ecological awareness, very soon you will find that you would be best served to choose a specific ecological identity such as saving a specific species such as the group Save the Beluga Whales and have them pay for your Doctoral Thesis on the need to protect Beluga Whales which would lead to your being employed and that would be your niche. More generally, there is a group which oversees a plethora of save this species or save that species and it is the Defenders of Wildlife. The same is true of almost any special interest group you can think of, and in some cases, it appears more like whatever you can invent. Perhaps we should start our own NGO and call it, The Lost Causes Nobody Thought to Cover and we could collect donations for all the causes which fell through the cracks and anybody with an agency of any sort could list with us and share our financial tools and maybe even receive some money from the central group, though much of that money would go to pay for lobbyists and pay the staff as it would largely be an employment agency matching people to their respective group for their cause.

 

 
These groups represent the desired end of our world as we know it. Much of the support many of these organizations get through volunteering and fund-raising comes from people who honestly care and want a better world. Still, if on every last one of these fund-raising efforts they would place the idea that the group supports a one world government such as the United Nations where everyone were to become citizens of the world, the citizens of the world would stop their support, or at least we would hope that would be the case. If the majority of people in the free world actually believe that a world government would be a good idea, then the world is in worse shape than we thought. Just for a moment, we would not ask you try this any longer than that, think of how problems, such as the pothole, which has blown three of your tires upon hitting it on your way to work this past month, would get resolved by a world governance. Did you feel the agony of paperwork and other technicalities which would be required to fill a single pothole? There would be environmental impact studies required and feasibility studies followed by a committee to decide on the best means and methods submitting the five best plans for repairing the pothole. Then somebody would demand that a study be done on the probability of repeat potholes on your stretch of road and whether repaving might be an even better option. After probably three to five years of studies and research, the government would send a large dump truck and a flag waver and streaming tape all to mark the work area so the crew would be safe while repairing the pothole. The union demanded twelve-man crew would be there with eleven men observing one guy shoveling tar and asphalt into your pothole which had grown over the year and a half of studying it. Then, after a whole day or two the pothole would be finished and everything would return to normal except there might be a new pothole which, of course, could not have been repaired by this crew as they were not assigned to that pothole which, incredibly, is all the way in the next block, they cannot be expected to work on that pothole without the necessary paperwork and studies and procedures being followed.

 

The good news is that the United States is not alone in resisting the idea of a single world government. There are a few other nations such as Great Britain as was evidenced by the BREXIT vote to leave the European Union. You will have noticed that the leading politicians have mostly tried to play down the people’s vote and remain in the European Union. Also remaining outside of the European Union are, in alphabetical order, Albania, Armenia. Belarus, Gibraltar, Iceland, Kosovo, Lichtenstein, Macedonia, Norway, Russian Federation, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, and Vatican City State. Another nation which stands against any one-world plans is Israel. The Islamic World is actually in favor of a single world government providing Islam gets to be that power and they see the one world government being called the Caliphate. The absolutely frightening reality is there are leaders in the world willing to make that sacrifice just to reach their goal of one-world governance. As John Lennon put his dreams of a one-world governance in his song Imagine where in it he envisions a world where: “Imagine there’s no countries, It isn’t hard to do, Nothing to kill or die for, And no religion, too, Imagine all the people, Living life in peace.” Of course he goes full tilt communist crazy in a later verse stating; “Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can, No need for greed or hunger, A brotherhood of man, Imagine all the people, Sharing all the world. Sure, right John, wherever you are, we tried that and the result was everyone had nothing while the select few had everything they ever desired. We have seen the results of this system in the Soviet Union, North Korea and Venezuela and none of these give any appearance of being enviable.

Anyway, the elites of both parties desire centralized power with them ruling that governance. President Trump disagrees with this vision politically despite being one of the preferred people within the system himself. President Trump is the one who can begin the struggle to drain the swamp, as it has been put. He has provided a great service towards that end already by exposing the media for their ‘Fake News’ Stories and how they have lied consistently in favor of the privileged few, the power and moneyed people. He has thrown the covers off and revealed the naked truth, the people have been being fed a bunch of garbage and that the mainstream media has been complicit in providing exactly what was ordered. Climate Change meant that people would have to surrender driving more than two-hundred miles per day in their electric car. Never mind that after five to seven years an entirely new set of batteries will be required which will cost almost as much as the car’s original price. Government will mandate that ethanol be mixed into your gasoline which at a certain point will mean older vehicles will no longer run on the provided fuel mixture. Ignore the fact that ethanol mandates have made many farmers switch their wheat fields to growing corn, which requires irrigation and fertilizers, and that we are now burning a goodly percentage of our food crop in our car engines. This is absolutely not a sustainable development. President Trump attempted to remove the coming increases of ethanol into the gasoline mixture only to have the Congress reinstate the mandate through some resolution where this instruction to the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy. This was done to satisfy the ethanol lobby, a very powerful lobby which uses the Iowa primary caucuses as their bludgeon with which to threaten politics. This lobby is supported by some very deep pockets which include Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Cargill and three international companies from outside the United States of Bunge (Founded in the Netherlands in 1818), Glencore International (Anglo-Swiss multinational) and Louis Dreyfus (French company founded in 1851). Also in on the lobbying are DuPont and Monsanto plus others not mentioned. Corn for ethanol has replaced wheat and corn for human consumption as the number one crop in the United States, has driven up the price of feed for cattle, and is pressing the prices of the entirety of food in direct jeopardy. Making the entire concept even worse is that gasoline ethanol mixtures not only produce lower miles per gallon but are harmful to the engines literally burning these fuels. The constant creep of more ethanol blended into the fuel also forces the vehicle manufacturers to redesign their engines just to accommodate these fuels. Are these politicians thinking of the people or their campaign pockets when they make such decisions?

Freedom of the Media was and is an Illusion

 

Freedom of the Media, the Press, was intended to mean that the media was allowed to take position opposing those in power. With President-elect Trump we have a complete rebirth of freedom in Media as the leftist media has been permitted total freedom in denouncing, condemning, delegitimizing and casting overt dispersion in such rapidity that the Maxim machine gun is jealous of their repetition rate against all items Trump. The only threat the American, and its twin of the European media and much of the western and developed world’s media, is facing is that largely, with few notable exception, is pure leftist progressive slant where anything which is not in line with their politically correct, censored, straight-jacket narrow view of the world is denounced as demonic, evil, Nazi-esque and potentially leading to censorship closing down all opposing views of the right wing. The media and their vociferous echo chamber of NGO’s, political advocates, full array of supportive leftist and progressive alternative media, and various leftist lobbyists all standing together making as much racket as the world might stand. That is one of the precious secrets of the Progressive leftists, they are all for one and one for all even more so than the Three Musketeers. This becomes evident in the one area where the left progressives have mastered something that the other end of the political spectrum has yet to even consider, let alone adopt.

 

Watch any demonstration for any leftist Progressive cause and you will soon understand how they get hundreds or more at every demonstration, universal representation. Go to an ecology rally against perhaps coal powered electricity plant in your city and there will be all sorts of ecology demonstrators including anti-nuclear power, pro-wind power, save the whales, clean our rivers, save the oceans, clean air and any other ecology cause imaginable. But that is not all. There will likely be others there who support other causes and are not particularly worked up about the ecology of the Earth and more concerned with the pro-choice, anti-death penalty, anti-racism, and even pro-Palestinian or BDS or other anti-Zionist, anti-Israel movements all there for one reason, the leftist you scratch my cause I’ll scratch your cause. Often at a demonstration for some cause there will be protest signs for other causes within the demonstration because if you protest one leftist Progressive cause, you are there representing all leftist progressive causes. And the mainstream will give favorable coverage with inflated numbers of protesters and enthusiasm and will take their pictures selectively attempting to only get the right standards despite others also on prominent display. Many will accuse me and ask how it is I know this. Well, once upon a time many years ago I was one of those liberals back when being a liberal meant keep the government out of my life, respect for all people, equality for all, live and let live, and, believe it or not, gun rights was not an automatic exclusion from the club. To be honest, the one cause which had tepid support was gun rights, but at least in those days it was not a cause which caused one to be disassociate and shunned.

 

Back then one went to every protest just as is the means today. There were people who would pay people to attend protests which were considered vital. These were often the protests against particular politicians or counter rallies to out shadow any right wing causes by having greater numbers at the counter rally thus making the coverage all about the liberal progressive cause which opposed the scheduled protest. Often the counter protest did not have any license or permit and actually be technically illegal but they were seldom forced to disperse and were given much freedom. The exception were the anti-war demonstrations which the government took a dim view and would use violent force to break up such demonstrations. This was back in the late 1960s and into the 1970s and with the times the position of the establishment changed as the left took command during the Administration and Presidency of Jimmy Carter. That was a turning point as from that point on the left progressive tours de force began a simple tactic, the just ignore everything between progressive majorities and just pick up right where the last front left off. This made for a force which became all but an inevitability which could never be opposed by anything the conservatives could establish.

 

This became evident when President Jimmy Carter simply picked up where President Lyndon Baines Johnson left off with the Great Society, affirmative action, wealth redistribution, ecology restrictions on industry through emissions and every other leftist progressive cause. Then there was a break for a dozen years of the Reagan and George H. W. Bush Presidencies. Then came President William Jefferson Clinton who continued expanding the progressive cause and then came another Republican, President George W. Bush, who was not so much a counter to the progressive causes than a slightly different approach in establishing big government programs which the “No Child Left Behind” program. This brought on the yet another rendition of ‘new math,’ ‘full word recognition’ and stressing minority contributions from the past replacing history with little mention of any contributions from white males and especially Judeo-Christian ethics and instead an anti-ethical education which removed any standard history of the United States and other Western histories which when mentioned it received condemnations of how it was exclusive not as meaning something exemplary but rather as racist, prejudiced and intolerant. Any traditional history was belittled and condemned by using modern day morality and equal rights viewpoints making everything from the past appear hateful and vengeful being racist, prejudiced and xenophobic. Making normative history where Christian, white male formed history such as the Founding Fathers were cast as hateful slave owners and thus not ethical or acceptable because such was unacceptable in these modern times and the European greats such as Da Vinci, Michael Angelo, Isaac Newton, Galileo and others were also intolerant, supremacist, racist, sexist and likely homophobic or full of other forms of hateful white supremacist views which would be condemned in today’s world. This version of history left much of traditional history untaught or presented as something to be rejected and spurned as horrible examples of a hateful past.

 

The Protest

 

Some of such views are being presented in the media where past events are presented under a modern viewpoint and leftist microscope where anything which was acceptable back in history becomes unacceptable and regrettable as it fails to measure up to the modern ethos and leftist yardstick which was unheard of and did not exist when the history occurred. This method was designed and makes children ashamed of their past history and thus leaves them unattached to their past and because of their being separated and unanchored their views can be molded in such a manner as to overturn their ethics and allows them to be made to accept anything as one who has no past can be given any defined future. This is an actual method for disconnecting children from their parents, their history, their religious affiliations and anything which might define them as a continuation of their actual society and are instead given an entire redefined ethos which has nothing connected to their history and disconnecting them from parents and everything which would allow for a continuation of history and a continuation of the historic societal models. This is reinforced by the mainstream media which works using the identical redefined ethical framework leaving a youth which when they take the reins of power, they will start a society completely detached from past realities and all of history. The casting of all former history as evil and ruinous and without any worth was beautifully exemplified by President Obama when he returned the bust of Sir Winston Churchill as he refused to retain the visage of a colonialist, racist, evil, hateful individual and not the man who saved the world from Nazi Germany’s world conquest. This is indicative of the new morality that the mainstream media and education which are both completely under the thumb of the progressive, leftist rewriters of all history and religious anchors in order to create a brave new world where for all intents and purposes they could teach children that 2 + 2 = 5 as truth and the children would have no anchoring to know it was a lie. Thus is the prospect for the future in Europe, the United States and the remainder of western society, culture and the developed world should it remain under the sway of the progressive leftists whose remaking of society has actually been in progress under even the ‘conservative’ politicians since Theodore Roosevelt and shifted into high gear by Woodrow Wilson and accelerated by Franklin Delano Roosevelt (yes, a relative of Theodore) and moved along even faster by Lyndon Banes Johnson and the line held by Jimmy Carter and slight advancement by William Jefferson Clinton and George W. Bush and then taken airborne and breaking virtually every barrier by Barack Hussein Obama with the future remaining to be seen. The main reason for the apoplectic fits and near convulsive contortions by progressive leftists over the election of Donald Trump is they fear those who hold their religion as holy, their ethics as cemented in a tradition worth preservation, their history as ethical and who desire moderation in progress where changes are evaluated over time, instead of great leaps being taken blindly without looking back and burning all the bridges and even the castles and fields behind them assuring there is no chance of retrieving any morsel from our collective past as they are ashamed of their Judeo-Christian history despite it having been the basis for many positive developments.

 

They refuse to credit the Judeo-Christian ethics with the end of slavery instead blaming it for slavery, bringing about the Renaissance instead dwelling instead on earlier Church anti-science standings ignoring the truth that things changed and the fact that many of those precious progressive ideas they hold as sacred have their roots in the Judeo-Christian ethos that people are all equal in the eyes of Hashem and instead teach that religion was all about exalting white, male Christian superiority and all the evils which can be appropriated to such a viewpoint. The fact that history has been a progression of events and evolutions caused often by the very past which originally opposed change but with time softened and became champions of the progressive changes in society. The reason for the new view demonizing the past of the youths’ parents and ancestors and pressing that all their views which are actually the logical result of the Judeo-Christian ethics, they want to disposes the past and make the youth divorce their history and thus be pliable and moldable into whatever the latest untested theories for society the progressives can invent. Where this will lead is to an entire unanchored generation which will fall before any anchored group which has a strong history and religious anchoring who are willing to fight for their beliefs. These types will rule the day simply because, as the old adage goes by G.K. Chesterton (we realize that anything old, especially adages, is unacceptable and makes any argument unacceptable but tough), “When men choose not to believe in God, they do not thereafter believe in nothing, they then become capable of believing in anything.” This probably states why the progressives work so hard to disconnect the youth from their past.
