Liberalism is an ideology.  Conservatism is a way of life.  The first one believes that government is owner and distributor of freedom and rights, while the other maintains that government exists to protect the rights and freedoms Man is born with.
One of my father’s best known witticisms was, “Some people are like the old prospector’s mule…you have to hit ‘em between the eyes with a two-by-four to get their attention.”  He was not wrong.  The past two decades have exposed far too many “low-information” voters who elected incompetent leftist politicians. 
All across our nation a quiet rage is building against the liberal assault upon American values.  More so than ever in the history of America, the concerns and patience of its people are being tested, tried and attacked by a group of elitists that is Hell-bent on the destruction of this country.  Voters can make a difference by adequately researching political candidates before casting their ballots. 
I want you to be resilient enough to protect your rights and resist tyranny.  America is calling, and we citizens must band together and fight or we lose our country to illegals, terrorists and Liberals.
Refuse to remain silent!  Question boldly, hold to the truth and speak without fear!  The only rights you have in this world are the ones you are willing to fight for.  But you are not alone.
  

"Liberalism is an ideology. Conservatism is a way of life. The difference between modern Liberalism and Conservatism is the first one believes that government is owner and distributor of freedom and rights, while the other maintains that government exists to protect the rights and freedoms Man is born with."

**CRITICAL THINKING**
     
Efforts to destroy the culture and fabric of the United States are seemingly endless.  The rogue’s gallery of America-haters has always included hostile foreign powers, radical Islamic terrorists, and insanely wealthy socialists, but there is a new entity that is attacking our country from yet another direction.  A far-left, anarchist group called JUSTICE DEMOCRATS promoted and ultimately elected seven unhinged puppets to seats in the House of Representatives.  An internet search will reveal the designs of this cabal. 

They conduct themselves essentially as a casting call; if a situation calls for a black, a Hispanic, a Muslim, a Palestinian or other “special interest group” individual, JUSTICE DEMOCRATS provides a body to fill the bill.  Crazed leftists from Minnesota, Michigan and New York became manufactured candidates, the political equivalent of the Spice Girls. 

JUSTICE DEMOCRATS doesn’t want anyone with political experience, but persons that can be manipulated and used to challenge incumbent Democrats.  Once elected, they wreak as much havoc as possible within the political system, but most don’t want long-term careers.  Their goal is to cause trouble, rock the boat, get out quickly, and then let others take up the fight.
 
Age-old Democrat legislators have always advocated wrong-headed, liberal, socialist, Marxist ideologies, but they rarely attempted to rapidly impose the kind of outrageous agenda demanded by these new unhinged zombies.  Entrenched Democrats prefer subterfuge, lies and spin to making explosive demands.
 
The following are examples of the JUSTICE DEMOCRATS' so-called “Green New Deal” which, if ever implemented, would sound the death knell of our great nation:
 
1.  A $15 minimum wage. (which will eliminate jobs and force companies to automate or close)
2.  Universal Basic Income. (who is to decide what that amounts to?)
3.  Medicare For All. (estimated to cost $32 trillion)
Free College Tuition. (nothing is free…who pays for it?)
4.  Slavery Reparations. (it’s hard to find a more insane notion)
5.  Late-Term Abortion. (Infanticide)
6.  Free housing for the homeless. (again, who pays?)
7.  Anti-Police at their core.
8.  Anti-Second Amendment. (They want strict gun control, universal background checks, limited capacity magazines)
9.  No Photo ID at voting booths. (Illegal aliens voting, the destruction of the election system)
10. Abolishing ICE.
11. Open borders, pro-DACA, no border wall, blanket amnesty.
12. Sanctuary Cities. (total disregard for the rule of law)
13. Abolishing the Death Penalty.
14. They want to make D.C. and Puerto Rico the 51st and 52nd states. (More Democrat voters)
15. Net Neutrality to silence conservatives.
16. Repealing tax cuts, raising the tax rate to 50-70%, increasing the estate tax.
 
This “wish list” and these radical libtards would be laughable if they weren’t so serious.  The simple fact that a few of them were actually elected to Congress, defeating incumbent Democrats, shows that many in the electorate are ignorant enough and can be brainwashed enough to accept their agenda.  JUSTICE DEMOCRATS are terrorizing the country, passing laws to murder people, making economic demands that would permanently bankrupt the United States, and taking steps to turn America into a true Third-World country!
  

Don't Be A "No-Information Voter!"

Voters in the United States can make a difference by adequately researching political candidates. Electing proven Conservatives is the first step in reversing the damage to our country caused by Liberals. Politicians must also be held accountable for their actions, and ineffective and dishonest lawmakers can and must be replaced either in scheduled elections or by recall provisions. If not, we will consent to our own oppression.

Many ignorant people want to punish individuals like me for accurately promoting the truth. If I’m verifiably correct, I will always speak my mind even if I’m a minority of one. I will defend my rights, and yours, against all enemies, both foreign and Democrat.

I want you to be resilient enough to protect your rights and resist tyranny. America is calling, and we citizens either band together and fight or we lose our country to illegals, terrorists and Liberals.

ABC Political Director Defends Green Deal: "They're Not Taking Away Your Hamburgers, Cars, Planes!"
By Kristine Marsh , 2/14/2019, MRC Newsbusters
 
ABC News's political director Rick Klein appeared briefly on The View Thursday to talk about the controversies surrounding freshman Democrats and to tout the Green New Deal proposed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. While co-host Abby Huntsman expressed concern that Democrats were veering too far left, Klein and fellow co-host Joy Behar shut her down, claiming that most Americans supported Democrats’ radical and infeasible policy proposals.

Huntsman began by asking Klein if Democrats should be “concerned” about the leading 2020 candidates supporting the Green New Deal, since it is a “far left” proposal. Her co-host Joy Behar rejected that insinuation.

“81% of voters agree with the Green Deal,” she touted. Behar was referring to a study done back in December by a liberal activism program centered on climate change at Yale, which calls into question its legitimacy.

But Huntsman worried that the radical left was going to rise up like the “radical" Tea party.  
“Does Nancy Pelosi need to take on a bigger role there in reining this back in? There's a concern that the Tea Party movement that we all saw with the Republican party may happen on the democratic side,” she gushed to Klein.

Klein assured her that Pelosi would make sure everyone understood what was in the bill before voting on it (oh, the irony.) He then claimed that most people would support the Green New Deal if they understood it (what?!):

You uttered two key words, Nancy Pelosi and in talking to party strategists and even some of the potential candidates they point to her as someone who can rein in some of the impulses, make sure that a vote on a Green New Deal doesn't happen until people know what it is. Because Joy’s right, people might support it if they understand what it is.     

Even more absurd, Klein, who is the political director for the news network, not an uninformed talking head, claimed that the criticism the bill has faced so far was unfounded and “inaccurate.” He complained that the radical bill didn’t call for exactly what it did call for:

"And if you don’t have a name attached to it and you don't misconstrue it. If they’re not taking away your hamburgers, or your cars or your planes, you have to --- if you present it accurately, maybe there's an argument," Klein argued.

To end the segment Hostin gushed about the pressing “problem” of climate change, and Behar made one more peer pressure push:

“But the majority of Americans agree with a lot of it. 76% agree with taxing the very rich,” she gushed. As Meghan McCain started to press back, they cut to commercial.


"Do not fear the enemy, for your enemy can only take your life. It is far better that you fear the media, for they will take your HONOR. That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditching and shoemaking and fetched up in journalism on their way to the poorhouse." ~ Mark Twain



DEMOCRATS UNHINGED!         ​​


Washington Post Gives Kamala Harris 4 Pinocchios for Tweet on Trump's "Middle-Class Tax Hike!"
By Tim Graham, February 14, 2019, MRC Newsbusters


Washington Post "Fact Checker" Glenn Kessler let a Democrat presidential candidate have it, the full "Four Pinocchios" rating -- for Sen. Kamala Harris claiming Trump's tax cut was actually a "middle-class tax hike."

On Monday, Harris tweeted: 
“The average tax refund is down about $170 compared to last year. Let’s call the President’s tax cut what it is: a middle-class tax hike to line the pockets of already wealthy corporations and the 1%.”

Kessler cited not just a congressional committee and a left-leaning tax think tank. He even cited the Cato Institute.
 
When both the Joint Tax Committee and the Tax Policy Center looked at the impact of the tax bill, they concluded that in 2018, most people would see an overall reduction in taxes. The Tax Policy Center found that 80.4 percent of all tax payers would have a tax cut, compared with about 5 percent experiencing a tax increase.

In the middle quintile, 91 percent would get a tax cut, averaging about $1,090, with 7.3 percent facing a tax increase averaging about $910.

Chris Edwards of the libertarian Cato Institute has argued that both the Joint Tax Committee and the Tax Policy Center present a misleading picture because they include payroll taxes (such as for Social Security and Medicare) — and the Trump tax legislation left payroll taxes untouched. When you exclude payroll taxes, it appears as though the largest share of the tax changes goes to the middle-income quintile, according to his calculations.

Harris spokesman Ian Sams claimed the senator was referring to the “long-term effect” of the tax cut, to which Kessler replied: "Oh. That’s certainly not clear in her tweet." This is why it can seem unfair to fact-check a tweet, which isn't exactly a term paper. On the other hand, tweets have great power and influence in our politics, as you can see from the reaction to Donald Trump.

The Democrats always claim that a middle-class tax cut somehow isn't real because it's scheduled to expire in ten years. The obvious joke is that the tax cut will expire sooner if the Democrats win the White House and the Senate. That doesn't mean it isn't real for now.

Kessler's final verdict: 
This tweet combines two factoids into a highly misleading package. Yes, tax refunds are smaller, based on preliminary data. And, yes, in the long run, the Trump tax cut raises taxes on the middle class — if you make the probably unrealistic assumption that Congress will not act to rescue tax cuts for individuals.

But Harris presented these facts without nuance or qualification, making it appear as though the smaller tax refunds were evidence of a tax hike on the middle class. In reality, the size of a tax refund reflects nothing about the size of a tax cut or tax increase — and at least in 2018, the vast majority of middle-class Americans can expect to pay less in taxes as a result of the Trump tax law.
Harris earns Four Pinocchios.

A Prayer For Our Nation

Lord, thank You for all Your blessings on the United States of America. I know our country, as a body, has turned against You and I wish to change the direction in which it is headed. I pray for our nation to have prosperity, economic health, protection from our enemies, and God’s blessing on all our leaders and people. I pray for Your guidance, wisdom and mercy in all things. Amen.
