Democrats Say Happy Birthday To America...

Written by Dawn Ellen on . Posted in Guest Articles

Publisher’s Note:  While deciding what to say about the new assault being launched on the President of the United States, I came across the following article written by a friend and occasional contributor to these pages by the name of Dawn Ellen. 

While nothing really surprises me anymore I am stunned by what I see happening in our nation.  For what seems like forever, the left tried unsuccessfully to frame him for some kind of collusion with the Russian Government.  This on the heels of the most treasonous administration in US History with real collusion with the Russians; remember, “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility” spoken to Medvedev..?  That comment was caught on a “hot” mic while they were discussing critical issues. 

Let’s not forget Extortion 17, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, trading Bowe Berdahl for five of the worst in Gitmo, nearly destroying our military, and so many other treasonous acts committed by number forty-four.

So now, a handful of very seditious Democrat members of Congress are now attempting what will be a failed coup to oust our duly elected president using the Twenty-fifth Amendment and the ramifications to We the People if such a thing ever does take hold.  It is sad to think that as we prepare to celebrate America’s 241st birthday, we have members of congress that are attempting to destroy the office of the Presidency because this President does not kowtow to their leftist agenda; they must be stopped.

And that is where Dawn’s perfectly stated article below fills in the blanks.

Dawn Ellen:  Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-Maryland) has proposed convening a ‘special committee of psychiatrists’ to determine if President Trump is fit to serve. This will be the first time Congress formed its own committee to judge a President's mental health. So far two dozen members of the House, all Democrats, have signed on to cosponsor the bill.

This is my warning to every Conservative. The greatest way to silence you is to declare you mentally incompetent or dangerous. This action reminds me of the Soviet Union when they declared all political opponents and dissidents to be insane and forced them to undergo psychiatric ‘care’.

This claim that President Trump is mentally unfit simply because his agenda threatens the Liberal radical views is strictly sideshow antics to distract from the real issues facing our Republic. Just because President Trump’s Twitter feed annoys liberals is no reason for a 25th Amendment impeachment action.
Once the ‘special committee’ is created, the House and Senate could, through a joint resolution, conduct an ‘examination’ to determine whether the President is incapacitated, either mentally or physically. The President can refuse to participate but it 'will be taken into consideration.'

U.S. Constitution's 25th Amendment allows a majority of the President's cabinet, or 'such other body as Congress may by law provide,' to decide if the President is unable to carry out his duties and then to put it to a full congressional vote. If two-thirds majorities of the House and Senate agree the President is not able to discharge his duties, he will be dismissed.

The Constitution's framers provided for the replacement of a president with an 'inability to discharge the Powers and Duties of the Office' but not for politically charged retaliation. They agreed 'inability' meant a President was 'unable to make or communicate his decisions' and/or suffers from a 'mental debility' rendering him 'unable or unwilling to make any rational decision.'

So what constitutes a ‘rational decision’? Agreeing with the Leftist agenda? Submitting to their radical views? In other words, anyone who defies and/or defeats the Left’s destructive agendas will be considered ‘unstable, irrational and/or mentally unbalanced.

This is dangerous territory considering that Liberals have made statements that Conservatives and Christians are mentally unstable and a threat to the nation. What if one day they declare you mentally dangerous and require you to undergo psychiatric care? You say to yourself, “That will never happen”. Guess again. Liberals are working feverishly day and night to find a way to permanently silence you and if in the future they ever get control of the House, Senate, Governorships and the White House mark my words, you will be declared mentally unfit and threat to society.

The Boss Is Us...

Written by Dan Ray on . Posted in Guest Articles

Publisher’s Note:  A friend of mine, Dan Ray, a true patriot who talks the talk and walks the walk wrote the following article back in 1987 to commemorate the 200th Birthday of the U.S. Constitution.  While thirty years have come and gone since he wrote it, it is as relevant today as it was then and has been for the past two hundred and thirty years.

Every Patriot needs to read this article and grasp its simple essence and truth.  

As an additional note: please notice which order of importance individuals are on the “Democracy” side of the chart.

Dan Ray:  As true Americans pause to celebrate the 200th birthday of the U.S. Constitution, it is of utmost importance that we clarify and reflect its true purpose and function.  

According to its authors, whom we call the Founding Fathers, the purpose of the Constitution was to secure the blessings of liberty for themselves and their posterity.  It was, and is, to function as a contract recognizing and protecting our GOD given, unalienable, individual rights.  The posterity is us and those rights are ours.  This contract was to guarantee every state a republican form of government, (Article 4, Section 4).

Our public, (government) school system, along with all establishment controlled media would have us believe that we have a democracy.  Is there that much difference?  So glad you asked!  To keep it simple, a democracy is a government of masses.

Its authority is derived through mass meetings or other forms of direct expression.  Democracy results in mobocracy, where the attitude toward law is that the will of the majority shall rule.

In a republic, (guaranteed to every state) authority comes from “We The People.”  From US, limited power is entrusted to our public servants, chosen through free elections to operate as three separate powers: (1) Executive, (2) Legislative, and (3) Judicial, which would maintain vital checks and balances to peacefully and automatically correct abuses of power that would move towards tyranny.

I guess that means that the boss is us.  A republic results in statesmanship, liberty, reason, justice and progress.  The important question is: Where do you stand as an individual in a democracy?  

Let’s find out by comparing the basic characteristics of a majority ruled democracy and of a constitutional republic.  The chart below will put the drastic differences into focus.  

Here is the basic structure: The truth is born out when one simply recites our Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag.  

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States Of America, and the REPUBLIC for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.”

Don’t be dismayed if you haven’t heard this before.  The elite forces in the federal bureaucracy have, through their power of control, made sure that “We the People” were lied to again and again.  The democracy lie is just one of many.  A few others are: the Federal Reserve, the Panama Canal giveaway, the so-called energy shortage of the seventies, Pearl Harbor, Korea, Vietnam, Social Security, fluoridation of water, the IRS and the 16th Amendment, Watergate and on and on.

Fellow Americans!  Wake up!  The constitution was written by Americans to protect American from GOVERNMENT!

Government is supposed to be a servant to the people.  It was not created to control us or dictate our lifestyles.  It is to protect our freedom to exercise our GOD given, unalienable rights, along with the common defense of this nation.

“We the People” must demand that our public servants, who are supposed to represent us, strictly uphold their solemn oath of office or be fired.  This includes Article 4, Section 4 which guarantees us a Republican form of government.

As the Constitution begins the journey through its third century, we must always remember that the Constitution is like a will, written to Govern the estate of our Founding Fathers.  It is still the Supreme Law Of The Land that all laws must be consistent with.  Be proud of the heritage it protects.  Study, learn and share the eternal principles it provides.  Keep alert to the fact that we are, and must remain a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.

And that means – THE BOSS IS US!!

Rome To Sodom And Gomorrah, The Decline of Western Culture...

Written by Felicia Anderson on . Posted in Guest Articles

Publisher’s Note:  As my regular readers know, I am not shy when it comes to railing about the decline of our culture at every level, and I have my share of detractors because of it.  Additionally, from time to time, I come across different posts on various social media which align with my thinking.

The following article written by Felicia Anderson; a reader and long-time friend says it better than I’ve said it in a while.  It’s a bit longer than most, but every word is carefully crafted to point the reader to a real truth.  I used to say “we are Rome” due to the depths of immorality we have ascended to, however we are fast becoming Sodom and Gomorrah.  

Felicia Anderson:  Our Crumbling Moral Culture:  "The obfuscation of rational thought is denigrating our entire country."

After viewing an absurd post, I became enraged over the country and the acceptability of the inane and obscene in this country pushed by the left and a media immersed in an immoral agenda instead of fact.  The left continues to pollute every ounce of decency and sanity in this country via obliterating rational thought, science, decency, and truth in our culture.  

Saul Alinsky and his Rules for Radicals, the bible of the “Progressive Obliterators” in this country, have pushed false narratives so far that indoctrinated minds are now accepting pure obscenity as acceptable virtue and truth in this country.  If you hear a lie often enough, it becomes your truth and reality.

How perverted can we become..?  We will continue to pervert our culture as long as we allow sinister minds to re-write our history, corrupt truth and science, and remove God and all decency and morality.

The hypocrisy is beyond contempt as the left collaborates with an Islamic governmental ideology based on Sharia Law subjugating women at all levels and promoting the murder and destruction of infidels, especially Jews and Christians.  The two opposing ideologies cannot co-exist under rational thought.  We view the news with numb minds as Iran, the leading financial supporter of terrorism, receives billions in cash from the United States and then marches formally in huge numbers in the streets chanting "Death to America;" and we as Americans accept this..?!  The ban on entry into our country by a government so morally corrupted is somehow illegal..?! How about, it's rational for security…!

The vagina bonnets and their absurdity of Nasty Women distracted from the actual collaboration they had with women connected to terrorist organizations, and as well, fueled by the belief that a baby is not a baby until it is born.  This narrative is now acceptable because they pushed their former agenda for so long that it became acceptable.  Abortion became acceptable until certain times and under certain conditions.  Now the narrative is being pushed so far that human beings can now be murdered without any remorse or disregard for LIFE up until delivery..?!  

My daughters were born at 8 lbs. 4 oz. and 10 lbs. 1 1/2 oz. and I know they could survive on their own long before delivery.  When we remove God and all morality we begin to denigrate our society by chipping away at decency, truth, moral behavior and acceptable, rational actions.  The push is so severe that there is now more concern and emotional support for animals than actual human intervention and connections. 

Of course, this was the initial design of the UN Agenda 21 (United Nations) and their nefarious design of a global world with a defined population and animals ruling the nest (excuse the pun).  The fines for harming animals can be more severe than the murder of innocent human life.  Additionally, social redistribution of wealth - set to bring down western societies economically to redistribute their wealth to other populations was a fundamental basis.  

The removal of private property; our ability to create wealth via equity, remains a huge part of it.  The wetlands cases insanely fining innocent private landowners and farmers are a prime example.  Have you noticed the increase of youthful college debt now controlled and run by the federal government and the push for everyone to attend college..?!  This was most likely by design and not an accident. 

Another illegal alien with five deportations and felonies just killed another innocent human being, yet I'll bet a brutal puppy death would even now draw more concern, because our acceptable norms are being corrupted by numbing faux narratives.

Immigration, The Way It Is Supposed To Be

Written by Lee Ann on . Posted in Guest Articles

Publisher’s Note:  I get a lot of different letters and communications from lots of people about lots of topics.  Some of them grab my attention, some not so much.  The following is a brief story about one immigrant family which no doubt played out countless times with other families in cities all across America in the years following WWII.  

It’s a story of risk, of determination and hard work, and a story that speaks to a time not so long ago when immigrants did what they had to do, sometimes very painfully, to get here LEGALLY; when they didn’t ask for special privileges or handouts, learned to speak English, and when they assimilated into the culture of America.  This is about a time when one came to America looking for a better life with a skillset; about a time when immigrants embraced the opportunities and became Americans, and didn’t expect America to become what they left behind.

As a side note, this is sort of a continuation of this story published on these pages a couple of weeks ago.  

This is the same friend of a friend who, due to the politically charged times we are witnessing, still needs to remain anonymous due to potential retribution because she doesn’t choose to fall in lock step with those who would abuse this great nation.  How sad that we are rapidly arriving at a place where a miniscule minority is getting away with trampling upon our basic liberty of expression.  

Given tonight’s speech by President Trump, this could not be a more timely story.

I will refer to her simply as “Friend of Lee Ann.”

Friend Of Lee Ann:  I know a lot of legal immigrants have had similar experiences, here is mine.

I came to this country at the age of fifteen, but the story does not begin here.  In the 1950s, the doors to the United States had opened for Europeans.  Yes, the doors to this country would open, and the doors to this country would close.  These rules were set by the United States government to control immigration.  My father took this opportunity and decided to migrate to America.  

To this day, I can picture myself as a little girl with tears in her eyes as I wave goodbye to a ship with my daddy on board waving back.  I was the apple of my daddy's eye, and little did I know I would not see him again for a very long time.  It was not easy for him or for my mother who was due to have a second baby.

In order to come to the States, my father had to find a host sponsor that would guarantee food and shelter until he got on his feet.  Leaving his family behind and after eleven days at sea, he landed in New York, and from there, he went to his host family.

Two days after my father’s departure, the baby came.  The only communication we would ever have was by snail-mail that took over a week to reach us.  I can still remember how excited we were when our mother sat us down to read the letters from our father.

As an immigrant here in his new home, my father worked very hard at different kinds of jobs until he found his niche.  Within five years of his arrival, he established a very successful restaurant for himself.  It took him long hours of hard work, but through determination he succeeded.  This was known as the American dream..!

After seven years, and for the first time since leaving, my father came back to his homeland.  I was a lot older by then, and the newborn baby he had never met was seven years old.  It was a very emotional reunion for all of us!  He spent some time with us in our home country, and then returned back to the United States.  Three years would pass, to which my father made one more trip to the homeland, before the entire family would end up in America together.  I was in high school now.

In school, there were no special programs for my brother and me who spoke no English.  We were fully immersed into the public school system, and it was either sink or swim.

Within six months, we were completely aware of everything that was going on in class, in addition to being able to catch up with whatever we had missed.  This is the reason I never supported bilingual education.  In my opinion, it holds children back rather than help them get ahead.

Later in life, I made my daddy very proud again.  I chose to take a husband of my heritage, someone that my daddy could relate to.  Both my mother and father were a big part of our extended family.  They helped raise their grandchildren and were later blessed to spoil six great-grandchildren.  I took care of them towards the end of their lives, and they lived to a good old age.

Life has not been picture perfect for any of us.  We have had our ups and downs, and just like anyone else had our shares of struggles.  One of my favorite sayings has always been, "If it doesn't kill you, it will make you stronger."  

Through example, one of the greatest lessons my parents taught me is the value of hard work in order to get ahead in life.  

Between my duties to my husband, children and parents, I tried my hand on a lot of different things. Today, I have a very successful restaurant of my own that I've been running for the past twenty-two years.  Not the one that my father gave me, the one he taught me how to build!

Legislating Sanctuary Racism In Illinois

Written by Jesus Alaniz on . Posted in Guest Articles

Letter to the Editor, 

HB0426, a humane act proposed by Springfield, IL politicians Emanuel Welch, Ann Williams, Elizabeth Hernandez, Kathleen Willis, Gregory Harris, Thaddeus Jones, Silvana Tabares, Kelly Cassidy and Theresa Mah. As a Latino I’m offended that politicians use my race, heritage and my people for political gain and to shame Anglos and other Americans who oppose their bills into silence.  I have nothing but the utmost contempt for these nine malefactors’ attempt to turn American against American.  May God forgive them, for I cannot.  The road to hell is paved with good intentions and the consequences of making Chicago and Illinois a sanctuary state are many.

There are many laws an illegal must break in order to succeed in the United States; among them, have an identity card and a social security number.  On August 30, 2016, Washington Times reporter Stephen Dinan reported that the IRS had discovered that illegals had stolen more than 1 million social security numbers and despite five years of trying to remedy the problem they never bothered to tell the taxpayers.  

A Safe Smart Living article citing various sources stated that in 2014, more than 1 billion records containing personally identifiable information were leaked.  Medical identity theft is on the rise with 500,000 victims in 2014 alone.  In 2014, $5.8 billion was given to identity thieves from the IRS due to fraudulent returns.  The number one consumer complaint to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in 2014 was identity theft.  It has ranked 1st place for 15 years running.  Children are susceptible to identity theft because they’re under 18 so their credit is not being monitored.  It is estimated that 19 people become victims of identity theft every minute and the average victim can expect to spend $500 dollars and 30 hours on average resolving each identity theft crime.

Friedrich August von Hayek, a Nobel Laureate of Economic Sciences noted, “The history of government management of money has, except for a few short happy periods, been one of incessant fraud and deception” and such is this act, “HB0426.”  On Feb 2, 2017 Forbes reported that taxpayers are doling out $27 billion to sanctuary cities with Chicago being one of the top three recipients.  “Coincidentally” all of the bill’s sponsors are from or nearby Chicago.  This shameless & racist bill is designed to make IL Gov. Rauner look bad and to abscond taxpayer money through a “legislative process”.
