In May of 2013, the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) revealed that it had selected conservative political groups applying for tax-exempt status for intensive scrutiny based on their names or political themes when Lois Lerner apologized for singling out the conservative groups. Those groups sometimes waited over a year to get the tax exempt status, if they ever got it, that other groups enjoyed almost immediately after application.
Following the Inspector General’s report, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform began an investigation into the IRS. Additionally, the House Committee on Ways and Means expanded its ongoing 2011 investigation into possible IRS political targeting to include the BOLO (“be on the lookout”) keyword targeting allegations.
From May 13 to 15, several senators and congressional representatives called for Acting Commissioner of the IRS, Steven T. Miller, to resign or be fired. Miller did resign on May 15th and Obama replaced him with John Koskinen.
On May 22, 2013, in her opening statement to the Oversight Committee, Lois Lerner stated: “I have not broken any laws. I have not violated any IRS rules or regulations. And I have not provided false information to this or any other congressional committee.” Lerner then invoked her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and refused to testify. Shortly afterwards, Lerner retired from the IRS.
The House Committee on Ways and Means subpoenaed Mrs Lerner’s emails from the IRS. In Aug 2014 Koskinen reported that Lois Lerner’s hard drive on her computer had crashed, that there was no backup of her emails. In Sept the IRS additionally reported that 5 more computers hard drives had crashed that might possibly have emails on them from Mrs Lerner. Shortly afterward the IRS reported, with no explanation, that Mrs Lerner’s Blackberry phone had been wiped of all data.
In January 2014, the FBI told Fox News that its investigation had found no evidence so far warranting the filing of federal criminal charges in connection with the controversy, as it had not found any evidence of “enemy hunting”, and that the investigation continued. On October 23, 2015, the Justice Department declared that no criminal charges would be filed.
Koskinen’s admission that the IRS couldn’t find Lerner’s emails reinvigorated congressional investigations into the IRS. At the time, the agency said it had routinely recycled tapes backing up emails before the controversy broke in 2013. Eventually it was discovered that Koskinen had lied to congress several times concerning the investigation and had defied congress by ignoring and subverting their efforts to get to the truth. Several Republican senators called for Koskinen to be impeached.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) called for a vote to force a vote to impeach Koskinen but Republican leaders managed to derail impeachment of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen in December of 2016, forcing the debate back to a committee for more study where it died when Congress adjourned at the end of the year. The entire incident died a quiet death with this one act.
Democrats maintained all along that the entire thing was nothing but a witch hunt but ultimately it was the GOP itself that killed the entire scandal, despite evidence that eventually proved it was true.
One has to wonder the reason for this. One also has to wonder why, now that Republicans have the majority in both Houses, that congress isn’t unified about firing Mr Koskinen, who still holds his job at the IRS. Koskinen is the ultimate swamp creature swimming in the swamp that Trump promised to drain.
So why hasn’t Trump fired him?

The Transgender Ban (c) by Phil Fishman, author of SECESSION-A REPUBLIC REBORN and A REALLY INCONVENIENT TRUTH- THE CASE AGAINST THE THEORY OF ANTHROPOCENTRIC GLOBAL WARMING.
Whether or not the ban was a well thought out move, perhaps another intended diversion from the Russia investigation: or just one of the President’s impulsive acts, the question is if the ban itself makes sense.
I think it fair to guess that Trump’s supporters, other than the LBGT people who had relied on his campaign promise to treat them fairly, will be overwhelmingly in favor. In addition, I suspect that most political conservatives, including those who are ‘Never Trumpers’ will be supportive; as I was initially.
But as with any debatable issue; it is prudent to withhold emotion and also to define the terms. We all understand that a person who has undergone surgery and hormonal treatments and presents himself or herself in that changed sex is a transgender person. And we might include persons who have not undergone surgery; but have begun hormonal treatments.
But what about the person who is just confused about his or her sexual identity; and has no plan to alter it? For the sake of argument, let’s put the latter individual in the transgender category. The two main arguments against allowing transgenders in the military are ‘unfit for duty’ and “degradation of unit cohesiveness”.
The unfit for duty argument is based on the notion that transgender people are mentally ill, predisposed to fits of depression and suicidal thoughts. Many psychologists feel that depression and suicidal thoughts are not so much a symptom of gender dysphoria as the reaction to being viewed as a second class citizen. But aside from that is the fact that depression is a fairly common ailment in the general population; and while suicidal thoughts are not as prevalent, they too occur. At present there does not seem to be any psychological screening before enlistment. If depression and suicidal thoughts are considered to be detrimental to military service; perhaps a psychological examination should be added to the compulsory physical exam.
The second argument states that the inclusion of transgender individuals would be detrimental to morale and unit cohesiveness. Currently, gays and lesbians serve openly. Is there reason to believe that effect on morale would be worse with transgender individuals? All of the arguments are plain conjecture; but as the saying goes, “The proof is in the pudding.” Eighteen countries, including Israel, Canada, Australia and the UK have no restrictions for transgenders in the military with no apparent problems above and beyond what occurs in the general population.
The last and overriding question, however, is the Constitutionality of Trump’s ban. It most likely will be overturned by the courts as discriminatory; but I doubt that Trump will be all that upset. His proposal has certainly taken some of the focus off the Russia investigation. And the court override will allow him to further appeal to his base by railing against the liberal bias of the courts, while taking more attention away from the investigation. You may not like the man; but you would have to admit that he is one clever fellow.
Had a phone conversation this morning with a very, very good friend about Trump. He pointed out that I don’t have anything good to say about Trump and that I have allowed my hate for Trump to blind me to all the good he has done, including Gorsuch, the million jobs that have been added since he became POTUS, the fact that illegal immigration is down, and can I IMAGINE how bad it would be if hilLIARy were the POTUS? He said that just the SCOTUS alone made it all worth Trump.
My friend then went on to berate me for where I get my information from, and told me that I am being dishonest because I can’t admit Trump has done anything good. He kept bringing up CNN, which I NEVER even watch, he kept dismissing Trump’s bad behavior telling me that “acting presidential” has gotten us nowhere and that he is glad to see Trump in the WH. He was pissed that McCain didn’t vote yes for the HC bill, and told me that despite the fact that Trump is a liar, I should be happy that he isn’t hilLIARy.
You know, I’m sorry. I just can’t get on the Trump train. I can’t cheer for someone who I have to hide my child from when he comes on the tv because I have no clue what is going to come out of his mouth. I can’t cheer for someone who treats women like trash, and I can’t cheer for someone who is unstable, undisciplined, unhinged and has zero self control and takes being a perpetual victim to an entirely new level.
I hope Kelly brings stability to the office of the POTUS but it is pretty bad that we have to place our hope in a babysitter for our president. I am not holding my breath though.
What upset me more than anything about this conversation is that my friend, who was once fun to discuss politics with, continued to push me past a point where I was comfortable. I told him that no matter what Trump did, that even if he walked on water tomorrow, I wouldn’t support him. My friend kept pushing and pushing and arguing with me about all the reasons he thinks I should support Trump until I finally stopped him mid sentence and told him I had to get to work (which I did).
I don’t know what happens to people when they jump on the Trump train. I don’t understand why people become so ugly, and then act surprised that those who don’t support Trump get so sick and tired of their bullying nonsense. I don’t understand why I am not allowed to have my own ideas and my own beliefs about our politicians, and why I am the bad guy because I won’t compromise my values and beliefs to suit Trump. WHY????????? WHY AM I THE BAD PERSON???? These people won’t even allow you to point out their hypocrisy. They won’t shut up long enough to listen and if they do, they really won’t shut up long enough to consider their own behaviors and how they have molded what they once called their values to be able to excuse and support Tump. I just don’t get it.
I have a feeling this is another really good friendship that will be lost over this stupidity. It really makes me sad because while I don’t want this friendship to end, I am also not going to be a laughing stalk where someone feels like they can just call me up, yell at me, and then go on and laugh with their friends about what a closet liberal they think I am. I am tired of it.
I am going to give this a little longer to play out and hopefully my friend will knock off his stupidity. If not, I will just have to stop answering the phone when he calls because I refuse to allow myself to be someone’s punching bad over this tiny handed, fake tanned, lying, misogynistic, narcissistic, out of control cheese puff. It isn’t worth my sanity and quite frankly, I don’t have to take this crap from ANYONE!!!!
I had a dream I went back in time and was talking to Samuel Adams. It went something like this.
Hi Sam. I’m from the future.
Sam: Greetings young time traveler.
Say Sam, I think you guys need to add some stuff to the constitution like term limits for representatives.
Sam: Why sayist thou this?
Well things have gotten a little out of whack in the future.
Sam: In what way pray tell?
Do you want the long list or the short one?
Sam: Whatever seemeth expedient young man.
Homosexuality is now accepted as normal in society. The govt forces people to cater to them even if they object on religious grounds. Our children are being taught to accept their lifestyle as normal in our schools.
A large segment of society encourages illegal immigrants to sneak into America and they protect them in certain cities called sanctuary cities. The govt even gives them a drivers license, free healthcare, housing, free education and medical care.
Sam: What is this drivers license of which you speak?
It’s something the government sells you when you are 16 to be able to operate a motor vehicle and then they keeping selling it to you for the rest of your life. It’s a form of national identification disguised as a right to operate a motor vehicle. I know…what’s a motor vehicle..right? I’ll have to tell you some other time. Anyway, let me tell you some more.
The federal government now has dominion over almost every aspect of our lives. They control our food production, healthcare, our waterways and many are intent on taking away our right to protect ourselves by striking down the second amendment and removing our firearms from us. They manipulate our currency and have run our national debt to 20 trillion dollars. I know you don’t know what a trillion dollars is Sam but trust me, it’s a buttload.
Corruption is rampant at all government levels and the constitution is trampled on with impunity. Lawlessness is becoming more prevalent as judges give criminals token slaps on the wrists for the crimes they commit.
We are taxed at a rate that would give those Tea Partyers a heart attack.
Half of Americans now depend on the federal govt in some form for money doled out to them and they call it “entitlements”.
There is more Sam. Lots more but I think you get the idea.
Sam: Young man, thou musts be defecating me.
No Sam, I am not shi**ing you.
Sam: Why hast these travesties been allowed in the land of the free?
Because the form of government that you helped to create gave us the freedom to be self centered, ungrateful and apathetic towards our own governance Sam. While we pursue life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness we forgot that we hold the reins to our government, that’s it’s our responsibility to hold our representatives accountable and we have let them have free rein as we put our attention elsewhere. I bet you didn’t think that was going to happen, did you Sam?
Sam: Ye dost underestimate our wisdom young time traveler. We anticipated that this could happen and gavest thou a solution should it happen. Why doth thou suppose that it is written in the Declaration of Independence that it is the right and duty of the people of America to overthrow a government that acts against thy common interests or threatens the safety of the people without probable cause?
Why dost thou thinketh I penned these words “If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin”?
It is up to thee, young man, to exercise thy freedoms we have provided for you.
OK Sam. I’ll take your words back with me and post them on Twitter and Facebook.
Sam: You must tell me about this Twitterbook young man.
I don’t have time Sam. I gotta run. 2017 is calling.
(I didn’t have the heart to tell him that America elected a multi-billionaire as it’s president that admits he’s bribed politicians most of his life, is a bully and narcissist of the highest order, thinks that women are a second class citizen and threatens his fellow politicians with their jobs if they don’t do what he wants. That would have only led to me having to tell him that this guy’s last gig was a reality show host and I know I would have been there for an hour explaining that.)
Are you a “bot”? A Trumpbot or a Cruzbot or any other politician bot? Do you identify yourself with one particular politician so much that you use phrases like “I support (insert your idol here) 100%” or “I stand behind (insert your idol here) no matter what”? I cringe when I hear people talking like that.
This infatuation of loyalty to the point of loss of critical thinking skills for yourself is killing us folks. If “their guy” does something right and lines up with their principles then they should get behind him or her. If they do something that doesn’t then speak out. Without guilt. And without excuses.
There are groups of people out there that are so cult oriented in this way that if you question anything “their guy” does then you are usually chastised, rebuked and blocked on social media because you actually used your mind instead of automatically accepting whatever their idol says as gospel. How dare you question my idol? Some Facebook groups have actually started hate campaigns against individuals and other groups that had the “audacity” to question their dear leader. Smearing reputations and lying non stop in an effort to discredit them, all because they didn’t like something someone said about their idol.
Ben Shapiro, a well known conservative blogger, public speaker, author and talk show host, states it well in his article “We Are Better Than This” when he says
Worship of any leader leads to violence, for the intolerance of opposing viewpoints often leads to violence. The whole American Revolution was a reaction to hero-worship, and it’s betraying American principles to worship any leader..
Although he targets Trump worship in the article the same applies to any politician. I left many of the groups I was in on Facebook for this very reason. It isn’t healthy and it does not advance the cause of liberty. It retards it.
I hold all politicians accountable.
I am just as disgusted by anyone who believes God put Ted Cruz in DC as I am that he put Trump there. The voters chose and in putting Trump there they chose badly.
WE seem to be, collectively, far more put out that Ted didn’t win than Ted himself is. If that is YOU, then re-examine your priorities. Ted may never be president and yes, that is a very real possibility.
Plan for alternative universes and move forward. This is a battle for conservatism and liberty and against socialism, not a puzzle of trying to get inside a Senator’s head to figure out why he leans this way or that or votes more RINO than we want him to at times.
It’s not about Ted Cruz. It’s about why he originally went to D.C. before Trump took some of his optimism and fighting spirit away.
And to me, it’s obvious. If you see it differently, then maybe I’m missing something. I just think narrow focus is dangerous. I’m pulling for him to do the right thing on health care but remember, this isn’t just one vote in a stream of Ted votes. THIS is his baby. This is what he fought for for YEARS. Full repeal. His legacy. He can’t do it alone but he can stand on principle. Or not. Further division lies ahead if we don’t stand #UnitedForFreedom.
No politician can be everything to everyone. They have failings just like we all do. They’re not gods. They’re not super heroes. They’re not your savior. Even if they have a Liberty score of 98% there’s still that 2%. If you make statements like “I stand behind (insert idol here) no matter what” then you have to stand behind him or her when they do that 2% thing too.
So stop it with the cult worship. You look like idiots that can’t think for themselves.
Trump went to the “Wailing Wall” in Jerusalem. Put his hand up and posed for a photo-op. The same day, a huge sink hole opened in front of Mar-a-Lago. That might be a coincidence, or it might be a warning. However, for the hundreds posting Trump with an aura and angel wings and claiming that God chose the Donald, you might consider this. By that same token, God would have had to choose Obama, as well. It’s more likely that God allowed us to choose our own demise.
Non-Trumpers, who did not vote for the lesser of two evils and did not vote for Hillary either, have been bashed, cursed and threatened with death yet still we hold to the same values we had when Obama was in office. So the next time you choose to correct us, coerce us, or threaten us if we don’t get on board the Trump Train, let me ask you, “Obama was elected. He won. He was in office for 8 freaking years. Did you get on the Obama Train?” I didn’t and I won’t hop on board the Trump Train either.
• The Wall hasn’t been built.
• Obamacare hasn’t been repealed.
• Planned Parenthood was funded through September in the budget agreement.
• Trump kept Obama’s Dreamer Act and added 18 thousand to the program.
• Middle-class taxes aren’t going down if Mulvany has his way. He and Trump figure to lower the upper-class taxes to 15% but the middle-class is going from 7% to 10%.
• The House has passed 150 pieces of legislature. Trump says he’s signed 48 pieces–most from Obama’s leftovers. So, there are 102 bills still sitting in the Senate.
• Trump has signed 38 EOs. If an EO is linked to a bill that congress has passed (such as the individual mandate EO he signed), it has to go through Congress. He has relieved the regulations for his corporate buddies.
• He stated, and this important, that we are pulling out of the non-binding portion of the Paris Accord. However, the binding portion is still in effect until 2019 and won’t truly be gone until a year later–so Trump hasn’t saved us diddly-squat.
• We are donating $50 million to Ivanka’s women’s charity. Since she’s such a down to earth girl, I’m sure we can expect great return on that money—after the Trump’s have figured out how to siphon off their share.
• We will be paying for family leave, baby care, etc. as a result of Ivanka’s socialist policy that her daddy agreed to.
• The travel ban that finally made it through courts bans the same countries that Obama had banned, but does not ban the worst proliferate-rs of terrorism, Saudi Arabia.
• We have agreed to take in Syrian refugees and this administration has almost doubled the number we will accept.
So, when you ask me why I won’t support Trump. Read this list. Then add to it the fact that those of us who bothered to vet candidates, found that over the 70 year period Trump has been alive, he hasn’t kept many promises. In fact, most people who have had dealings with him, would warn you to stay away.
Not to put too-fine a point on it. We–the American people–have failed to protect the most innocent among us. As a result, 60 million babies have been aborted, as of this month. We have no reason to think that God would want to save us from ourselves.

I’m really struggling right now. Not with politics. Politics is as ugly as I always know it to be. I’m used to that. Not just used to it, hardened and callused to it. I choose to fight in the arena, but I do so only because I’m passionate about my principles. And my principles are defined by my faith.
But right now my heart is struggling with everything I’ve ever believed. My struggle is with the church. I’m watching the reaction to how leaders in The Church, many whom I’ve known my entire life, are destroying their testimonies by not only accepting this reprobate- but are blasphemously using God’s Word to defend him!
I was floored and appalled when I read a comment on my Facebook page by a missionary this morning who our family has financially supported to “stop bitching” about Trump. I was emailed by a “Christian woman” yesterday who told me that I should “feel flattered if a man talked to me that way.” I get refusals from Christian fathers to respond when I ask if they were willing to sacrifice the “crotches of their daughters” to save the country from Hillary. They respond with venomous attacks because their answer will either make them look like a hypocrite or a reprobate. Another woman who was the wife of a former pastor told me in regards to the same question, “As far as my daughters and grand-daughters are concerned, I trust them to God’s care.” Maybe the victim’s fathers simply didn’t trust them into God’s care quite enough and Trump really isn’t responsible for any of it?
I sat in church yesterday morning and I just felt grieved. It was hard for me to participate. In fact, I left early. The amount of “church people” who are dismissing this entire debacle as acceptable and normal, and attacking the voices who are saying, “no, this isn’t who we are!!!” makes me question everything.
Do I even want to leave my little girl in the nursery with groups of people who feel it’s morally acceptable to defend this all for the sake of their party? The amount of church leaders who work in the youth groups who aren’t fighting this on a spiritual front and remaining silent leaves me wondering why bother? Where are the courageous men who are standing up and leading our boys towards Christ and demanding that they not become a part of the group who gives it up to go along? These are the men and women I entrust influencing the spiritual lives of my family… where is the righteous outrage? Where is the accountability as a body towards one another?
And for those of you who are wondering, I can assure you, my church is probably symptomatic of your church. The Church as a whole is destroying their testimony, their integrity, by their silence or outright acceptance.
I know we don’t look to man. Man will fail us. But man makes up the fellowship and part of it is becoming rotten.
Men and women who I trust to pour God’s Word into the heart of my children or care and nurture them in the nurseries of the churches, instead pours fuel on the cultural wars they declare to fight by declaring their unwavering support for a deviant because of…. politics? All the while declaring with a Bible in one hand and a shaking fist, that “we must trust God!” Apparently, we can only trust Him so far— we have to throw our testimonies under the bus to avoid Hillary Clinton – because He definitely can’t be trusted with that one.
There are two groups of people with whom I speak.
The first being the vocal Trump supporter who sacrilegiously declares that Trump is God’s appointed leader for this time. Those may be admired in their tiny echo chambers of mindless idiots. Outside of their tiny core, they’ve already lost all credibility. They will never again change hearts and minds and influence newcomers to their party and certainly not to their Bible Studies.
The second group is the formerly vocal political Christians who have suddenly gone dark and silent. You have no comments. You state piously on social media that “this has just become too ugly.” These are the cowards. You disappear when it actually matters—when the world is watching to see how we react to this as Christians.
This is the group who remains vocal on their principles when they have an audience who agrees with them. But they aren’t vocal on their principles when it might require a confrontation. These types of people are even more guilty of destroying their Christian testimonies because they clearly have the sense to know what’s wrong….but they don’t have the courage to stand up for what’s right. Suddenly, their statuses have a few Scripture verses that “might allude” to what’s going on… but they don’t dare translate that into every day current events and accountability towards their Brothers and Sisters in Christ.
As I’ve stated so many times. I’m not looking for a perfect president. I’ve never found a Republican candidate that I couldn’t support over the Democrat alternative. But I need to find one with whom I can find some sort of moral commonality.
So many times I have wanted to walk away from all of this. This election has broken me in so many ways. It has delivered me into some of my darkest moments- sometimes on a national stage that has left me wondering if I’ve done the right thing and if any of it is worth it.
It has left me with deep conversations with people in my life that I profoundly admire and respect. And they have reminded me that the church has made grave mistakes before. The solution is not to abandon it but to speak out and reform it.
So, while I admit I’m struggling. I remember that I stand shoulder to shoulder with good men who haven’t caved or been bought with massive donations. Many who don’t have large audiences but their courageous stands cost them just as much. Along with men like Russell Moore and Albert Mohler, who have identified this as the cancer that it is. New voices, like Wayne Grudem, who are waking up and issuing giant apologies to the church and to the nation for being so blinded.
The world is watching how the Christian community responds to this. And the church will own a lion’s share of the responsibility for the judgement that God brings on our country.
I pray He is merciful because we certainly do not deserve it.

For those that believe the people are free and Trump is the answer, sorry to burst the bubble, but the people ARE NOT free. They are now living as slaves under a dictatorship and it has been that way for ten years at least. Trump is NO different and he has merely assumed the reigns of the dictatorship.
It isn’t a constitutional republic when the president supports socialized healthcare and penalties that say you buy it or face fines or imprisonment. When the government sends agents to the homes of citizens to warn them that the first amendment doesn’t apply and they can’t oppose the president – That is a dictatorship. When a president threatens the freedom of the press and freedom of speech, threatening to shut down all opposition and negative comments – that is a dictator speaking.
When the president is in breach of the 200 series of constitutional laws building new towers around the world, golf courses, resorts, and then ignores the fact those nations are also hotbeds of terrorism and doesn’t include them on an immigration ban, because they would close him down, costing him billions in wealth – It is a dictatorship.
When a president dictates who can or can’t enter the nation, or he doubles the number of terrorists from Islamic nations – he is no longer working for the people, he has declared himself king. When the people worship a man, instead of holding him to the rules of office, the people have now embraced a dictator.
It is the actions of a criminal when a president ignores congress and 50 US code 1542 to attack another nation over a picture, leading to the deaths of hundreds of men, women, and children. The western media would have everyone believe it was retaliation, but in fact, it was unprovoked murder of innocent civilians. When in doubt, ask those that live there and the facts are like night and day.
It is illegal for a president or any member of congress to hire family, friends, lobbyists for ANY government position, per 5 US code 3110, but again, the dictatorship was shown when Trump put Ivanka and Jared Kushner in the White House. He may say they aren’t getting paid, but it is twisting oranges and apples, since both have taxpayer funded offices, expense accounts, free government travel, secret service, plus they are on the world stage representing the government in an official capacity, which is illegal.
It is a dictatorship when the government can arrest a citizen for collecting rainwater, they build a pond on their own property, the children are told what they can eat, drink, or do in schools, or the government can take the home and property of legal citizens for their own use and profit. When individuals must obtain permission to get married, buy a license to hunt, fish, own a gun, and they are taxed on everything they do – that isn’t a free society under God – it is a dictatorship.
It is a dictatorship when the wealthy elite are above the law, but Joe taxpayer goes to jail for tax evasion or daring to stand in opposition to government. It is a dictatorship when the citizens want accountability from their leaders, but instead they are attacked and threatened for voicing their concerns. The Patriot Act gave the government the freedom to abduct citizens from their homes and hold them without representation, rights, or due process, which is a tyrant’s dream.
Freedom is now illusion, not real, because government dictates what the citizens can do or say, lies, propaganda, and innuendo have replaced truth, so the media can show bias in their reporting. The world is changing and it is status quo as usual, since the names change, but both parties still represent those that own them, namely big business, corporations, pharmaceuticals, and the global banking systems. When the people are forced to support criminals, to prevent other criminals from ruling them, that is a dictatorship and is NO different from North Korea, China, Russia, or other tyrannical states.
For those that paid attention, Trump appointed eight NWO globalists to his administration that worked directly as top executives of George Soros and Jacob Rothschild. Bannon, Mnuchin, Haase, Cohn, Wilbur Ross, Tillerson, etc that all support and endorse globalism.
Unfortunately, when a dictatorship wants to keep the people in darkness, they don’t reveal the truth – they push the illusion that they are working for We the People, and as freedom erodes, enemies of the people are supported, another strand of the constitution is shredded, eventually making it irrelevant. Who is to blame – the gullible, the ignorant, the misinformed, and the low-information citizens that embrace illusion and fantasy over reality that puts them in shackles to the lie.
“War is when the government tells you who the enemy is. Revolution is when you have to figure it our for yourself.”
There are an increasing number of people who think our county is on the brink of revolution. It is a thought based on desperation of circumstance. It is the fear that ours is the last generation to understand liberty. Lord knows liberty isn’t taught in government endorsed curriculum. Do we fight to reassert our will on the government that has ignored our repeated pleas and demands to cease their habitual abuse of their constituents? Do we arm ourselves and prepare to depose the dually elected representatives of their districts?
I’ve got a tough bit of news for you. The Revolution is over. The government has won. Under the cover of closed rooms and the heavy appeals of lobbying firms, your heritage has been bought and paid for. The willfully ignorant or the uninformed peasants have succumbed to Political pressure, not by force of arms but by complication. Layers upon layers have added an abominable depth to the process of governing, that, over a few decades has resulted in the citizen granting deference to the experts.
Who is the expert in commuting to the workplace? Who is the expert in shopping for perishable goods? Who knows how many children you have or the methods used to put them to bed? Who can fill their minds with knowledge, which exceeds the skill of reciting a memorized line from a state sponsored textbook? Is it government’s place to teach economics to your children…the same government that runs a 20 Trillion dollar deficit?
The citizen is meant to hold a place of preeminence in their own governance. The individual is meant to be the highest authority in matters of their own daily lives. By deceit, you have been convinced that there are those smarter and wiser, to deal with such mundane affairs as how you wake in the morning and to what statutes you will conform to when you dress and eat breakfast.
Yes, the Revolution happened and you missed it. Insurrection was accomplished with not a shot fired. The executive, legislative and judicial branches conspired to confiscate your control in absence of your interest. While you grilled hot dogs on the fourth of July to celebrate your independence it was stripped from you like shoes from a sleeping child.
We have awakened to a bondage just as real as that known to the Hebrews in Egypt, to that of the peasant under rule of the English throne, to that of the peasant under the samurai class and to the slave under master in the cotton field.
Much like that child who fell asleep fully clothed, we ask ourselves where we are and how we arrived there.
Now, the first order of business is to identify the leadership of the revolution…to name the men who have committed the insurrection and usurped our rightful place as masters of the land we inhabit. To name them is to implicate them in the treasonous affairs they have presided over. To identify them is to know the enemy. To know the enemy is to solidify our resolve. To solidify our resolve is to refuse to concede our sovereignty further. If they are involved, be sure their intention is to further degrade and soften our influence over their intentions.
Have you signed the treaty of surrender or do you stand with the declaration’s signers who pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to oppose tyranny in all of its manifestations? Time to America up or restore the fetid chains of oppression known to every generation prior to 1776.
Actions have repercussions and the Donald’s actions couldn’t have been done more effectively if it were Hillary doing it. For those that actually avoid the media, especially Fox the liar’s media, many actually listen to what comes out of Trump’s mouth instead. We watch what he signs in the Oval office as EO’s, and his actions closely; who he meets with, and what happens after those meetings take place.
Consider the following.
Tillerson announced that the Donald had increased Syrian refugees from 830 to 1500 per week. That came directly from his own mouth, so it can’t be argued.
Trump threatened the freedom caucus about his healthcare plan, which was nothing more but Obamacare redone. He is now threatening Senators to pass it, or he will destroy them. These are men in his own party he is threatening, you know, Republicans, not Democrats.
Trump pushed for and received a 1.1 trillion dollar omnibus package that fully funds sanctuary cities, Planned Parenthood, common core education, refugees, etc. The wall – not mentioned, and perhaps next year.
Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, is pushing for paid maternity leave, which is another democrat socialist program, and the Donald is pushing it now. Since when do democrats get to dictate government programs? Especially since they aren’t elected, and it is illegal for Trump to involve family in the White House. So much for 5 US code 3110. Just ignore it.
How about Trump pleading with the NRA to accept his gun control, and Obama’s no fly lists. That would see the assault rifles outlawed and more criminals killing innocent civilians, just like every other no – gun zone in the nation. But obviously no one cares unless they are the victims.
How about Trump ignoring the constitution, which again isn’t unusual; he said in 2015 that he loved Obama’s executive orders, but they didn’t go far enough. If elected, he would continue the back-room deals with democrats to seal the deal, even if it meant bypassing the constitution and congress to do it. He then said in October 2016 that the constitution has to take a back seat and be ignored for his agenda to proceed. I guess if the people don’t care about constitutional law and want to be ruled by a dictator, just ignore everything he said.
How about Trump making millions off the people with his blatant acts of conflict of interest? He is negotiating for new hotels, resorts, golf courses, escort services, etc in foreign countries to pad his own pockets – not the people.
How about Trump attacking other countries, but praising Carrier, since he owned stock in the company, but they are now cutting jobs that will go to Mexico. Ford – same thing and instead of Mexico, jobs are going to China now. So much for Trump praising the companies for staying in the US and not a peep from him over the job losses.
How about his asinine tweets that display the mentality of a two-year-old and make the nation the laughing stock of the world.
Trump is a criminal, a perverted man that has abused women for most of his life. There are thousands of court dockets on file where he has to appear in court for extortion, fraud, theft, money laundering, and sexual assault. It is all factual, backed up by mountains of documents and his own words, but did the people listen? – nope, because they were gullible and manipulated to follow evil and now the nation will pay for it’s arrogance.
For those of you trying to defend your phony orange messiah, please, pray tell, just what has Trump done in his first hundred days? You pee your panties at the very thought of Hillary being POTUS yet you have no problem with a guy who does exactly what she would be doing! Clearly, whatever problem you had with Hillary, it wasn’t her liberal ideology. I offer my evidence…..
I didn’t support either liberal and here is why:
• Obamacare is still intact under Trump, and would be under Hillary.
• Obama’s amnesty (DACA) is still intact under Trump, & would be under Hillary.
• Trump hasn’t declared China a currency manipulator on day one as promised, & neither would Hillary.
• Trump’s administration is preoccupied with scandals, investigations, & controversies, & so would Hillary’s.
• Trump hasn’t and won’t build a border wall, & neither would Hillary.
• Trump proposes free child care and maternity leave, & so would Hillary.
• Planned Parenthood is still being funded under Trump, & would be under Hillary.
• Trump proposes hundreds of billions in infrastructure spending, & Hillary would also be a big spender.
• Trump hasn’t pulled out of NAFTA as promised, & neither would Hillary.
• Trump intervened in Syria, in violation of his promise, & so would Hillary.
• Trump hasn’t moved our embassy back to Jerusalem as promised, & neither would Hillary.
• Sanctuary Cities are still being funded under Trump, & would also be funded under Hillary.
• The Iran nuke deal is still intact under Trump, & would be under Hillary as well.
• The Republican Congress is impotent, ineffective, & unfocused under Trump, & would be under Hillary.
• The swamp hasn’t been drained under Trump, & it wouldn’t under Hillary.
• The military is being forced to put up with LGTB integration and indoctrination under Trump, just like it would be with Hillary.
1. God made mankind in His own image and likeness.
2. God strictly, explicitly forbade the murdering of any individual so made in His image and likeness.
3. The great minds of western civilization, from Cicero, down through Aquinas, and Blackstone, and Hamilton, and Adams, and Jefferson, and many others, posited the protection of the individual right to life as the first part of the natural law, and the first and most important reason for the existence of human government.
4. The founders of the American republic, in our national charter, the first part of the organic laws of the United States, the Declaration of Independence, asserted as self-evident truth that all men are CREATED equal by God, and are, each and every one, therefore endowed with the unalienable right to life, from the first moment of their creation.
5. The framers of the United States Constitution asserted as the crowning purpose of that Constitution the securing of the Blessings of Liberty to POSTERITY, ie those who are not yet born or even conceived.
6. The framers of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution forbade the taking of the life of any person without a fair trial on a capital offense.
7. The framers of the Fourteenth Amendment explicitly, imperatively REQUIRED the equal protection of every innocent person, and explicitly REQUIRED each and every state in the Union to provide equal protection under the law for that supreme God-given individual right.
8. Article Six of the U.S. Constitution REQUIRES every officer of government in this country, in every branch, and at every level of governance, to swear an oath to God to support and defend the Constitution, including its crucial equal protection requirements.
I don’t know how it could be any clearer:
Abortion is NOT legal in America.
Every person must be provided equal protection under the law.
We don’t need more legislation.
We don’t need more constitutional amendments.
We have no obligation to obey the immoral, unconstitutional opinions of tyrants in black robes.
All we need is for public officers, especially in the executive branch, to keep their sacred oaths and provide equal protection to the innocents.
In order for that to happen, THE PEOPLE MUST FIRST MAKE THE DEMAND.
NO MORE COMPROMISE.
I was born and raised a Muslim. My whole family is still Muslim. I know every genetic code of Islam because I have been fully indoctrinated, and I know and understand the Islamic brain.
I live and breathe with them, but I am now an insider. I left Islam once I understood that Islam is a sick and evil power that thrives on death, even the death of their own family members.
The following is the Islamic message to the United States Of America.
To the infidels of the West,
The Constitution for the new Islamic Republics of Euro-Arabia and Amer-Islamia is under construction.
We will fight you infidels to death while your own laws protect us.
Your Democrats and your news media will support us.
N.G.O. ( Non Governmental Organisations) will legitimize us.
(C.A.I.R.) The ( Council on American–Islamic Relations) will incubate us.
The A.C.L.U. (American Civil Liberties Union) will empower us.
Western Universities will educate us…for free.
U.S. Mosques will shelter us.
O.P.E.C. The (Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries) will finance us.
Hollywood and their foolish celebrities will love us.
Kofi Annan and most of the United Nations will cover us.
Our children will immigrate from Pakistan, Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Indonesia and even from India to the US and to the other Western countries. They will go to the West for education and be given full scholarships. America is paying and will continue to pay for our children’s education and their upbringing in state funded Islamic schools.
We will abuse your welfare system because you will allow us to. Our children will also send money home while they are preparing for Jihad. We will take full advantage of American kindness, gullibility, and compassion, and when the time comes, we will stab you in the back.
We will say one thing on the camera and teach another thing to our children at home. We will give subliminal messages to our children to uphold Islam at any cost. Our children in America will always care more about Islamic Country’s interest than US interest.
We will teach our children Islamic supremacy from their very childhood. We will teach them not to compromise with the Infidel. We do this from a very early age so our children won’t hesitate to be a martyr.
We will take over the Europe first and then the US will be next. We already have a solid ground in the UK, Holland, Sweden, Spain, Italy, Germany, and we are now in the United States working diligently for the day when we overtake your country.
Your news media at CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and others will paint a deceptive picture portraying Islam as a victim of US and Israeli oppression. The lying news reports will spread like wildfire saying “ American military killed 10 Muslim babies, the Jews killed two Muslim women”, We will use these lies to turn your own people against you, and many of them will march in the streets, burning US flags and destroying cities.
You will be impressed when you meet a moderate Muslim personally. As your next door neighbor, coworker, student, teacher, engineer, professionals you may even like us. You will find us well mannered, polite and humble that will make you say, wow, Muslims are good and peaceful people, but they will become vicious and violent when the call for Jihad sounds.
We will use your own values of kindness against you. You are destined to lose.
United for Freedom is a unique Facebook group that was founded in March 2017. What makes it unique is that it is a political action group where members contact our elected officials everyday through the representative’s Facebook pages and Twitter accounts.
United For Freedom (UFF) is a National group of activists fighting for conservative principles at the federal level while each of the 50 continental US states are led by UFF activists who fight for conservative principles at the state and local levels. In the age of social media activism, UFF’S National Directors recognized the need to organize conservatives who were were eager to have their voices heard and provided them the unified platform to do it. Many conservatives feel they are being misrepresented by the politicians they elected. And many refuse to accept the party line status quo and the changing landscape of the Republican platform. UFF is a ‘landing zone’ for many of these angry conservatives.
UFF was founded by Lita Whitener in March of 2017 as a way to effect change and influence our elected officials when they vote. Lita is a fierce defender of conservatism and our constitutional rights in America. She is a rock ribbed conservative from rural Georgia, the National Director of United For Freedom, a freelance writer, founder of The Conservative Bullhorn and Conservatives Patriots United Against Progressivism. She is also a lifelong pro-life, constitutional rights activist. She is the mother of 3, a Christian, gun enthusiast and enjoys playing guitar. She has organized efforts in Georgia to fight back against special interest groups and government officials who have sought to limit our individual freedoms. She fought on behalf of Georgia Charter Schools and organized a get out the vote effort on a referendum that defeated special interest lobbying overwhelmingly. She distributed petitions and organized support to fight the Georgia Governor’s veto of RFRA (Religious Freedom Restoration Act) and his veto of the Open Carry Campus Bill. She continues to push back against the liberal special interest groups and the state and national elected officials who threaten Georgia’s individual freedoms.
Lita was quickly joined by Chris Zeller and Bill Blood, both political activists and having a substantial conservative following on Facebook, aligned with Lita on conservative principles and values, as administrators and the group grew to 3000 members in 3 short weeks.
The group has several teams that make it the success it has become. A Greeting Team vets new member requests to keep the group secure as well as welcoming approved new members. A “Graphics Team” generates the memes, banners and logos used by UFF. A “Twitter Team” promotes the group on Twitter. A Mission Team researches the political positions of Senators and Congressmen and selects various individuals to be included in the “Daily Missions”. UFF does not support nor bash any one politician and group discussion is usually limited to the mission focus going on at the time.
The daily missions are posted each day on a “Mission Board”. Each mission has a focus such as healthcare or the budget. The missions are usually set to contact at least seven representatives in the House or the Senate. The Mission Team researches the representatives Facebook wall for a relevant thread for UFF members to comment on and then another link to their Twitter accounts. Members can usually work a set of missions in about 5 minutes using copy and paste to get their message out. Members enjoy having a ready set of contacts available to contact the representatives and make their voices heard while at the same time focusing on a specific topic as a group.
The group regularly receives comments from it’s members like this one from Barbara Faulkner “I truly enjoy writing to them and I will rejoice if I knew just one person read what I wrote and they thought about it for one minute. I’ll keep writing because some day one person will get it…. maybe!”
United For Freedom enjoys the support of two conservative syndicated radio show hosts, Shannon Joy and Phil Williams as well as having one of the candidates for President in the last election Thomas Hoefling, representing America’s Party, as a member. Thomas is a staunch supporter of right to life and is the publisher of Equal Protection for Posterity and heads up CAN-DO-USA.com, a site dedicated to building up and edifying individual Americans, their families, the local church, and to find every possible way to serve our local communities.
If you want to do something more than just talk about your freedoms then visit United For Freedom and request to join.

WOW! Check out this great survival tool.
Seth Rich, 27, worked as the voter expansion data director at the Democratic National Convention and was fatally shot in the back on July 10, 2016. Rich had been employed for two years. Rich also worked on a computer application to help voters locate polling stations, and had just accepted a job with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
According to Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) reports, officers patrolling the Bloomingdale neighborhood heard gunshots around 4:20 a.m. on the morning of July 10, 2016. Officers discovered a “conscious and breathing” Rich at 2100 Flagler Place in northwest Washington, D.C.
Police have not yet solved the case, and have closely guarded information regarding his murder from the press. “We don’t want this investigation playing out in the press,” an MPD spokeswoman told reporters recently.
MPD surmised that Rich was a victim of a botched robbery. Police said that they found his wallet, credit cards and cellphone on his body. The band of his wristwatch was torn but not broken. The current theory maintains that the shooters panicked after shooting Rich and immediately fled the scene.
Meanwhile MPD has refused to divulge information on the case. The public incident report revealed that at least three responding officers were wearing body cameras. When the media reached out to the police for information regarding the presence of body cams or surveillance footage near the scene of the crime, the department refused to confirm or deny the existence of surveillance footage. The D.C. Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has reportedly refused to release Rich’s autopsy report.
Before his death, Seth Rich was investigating several cases involving the DNC’s electoral fraud and voter suppression, and was set to testify on the case of Hillary Clinton’s email investigation. The content of Rich’s scheduled testimony remains unclear, but it does raise questions about the scandal involving the DNC.
The family of Seth Rich recently called on police to publicize details of the murder investigation after 10 months of mystery, saying “We desperately want to find Seth’s murderers and bring them to justice as quickly as possible.” The Washington Post recently released an article that was supposedly written by Seth’s parents saying that “We have seen no evidence, by any person at any time, that Seth’s murder had any connection to his job at the Democratic National Committee or his life in politics. Anyone who claims to have such evidence is either concealing it from us or lying”. They sent a “cease and desist” letter to FOX news for peddling politicized conspiracy theories” about their son.
One America News Network is offering a $100,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest of a suspect in the case. Attorney Jack Burkman is offering $105,000 of his own money for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible. The D.C. Metropolitan Police is offering a $25,000 reward, and WikiLeaks announced it is also offering $20,000 for any information that leads to a conviction in the murder of Rich. The DC police are offering a $20,000 reward. Infowars is putting up $130,000 and a couple more totaling $40,00 brings the total reward to $520,000.
A White House petition urging Congress to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the murder of Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich is halfway to the 100,000 signatures needed before a June 18 deadline. It doesn’t look like they will make at this point, however One America News Network has been hitting the story hard in recent weeks and interest has picked up once again.
Did Democrats have Seth Rich killed for releasing DNC emails to Wikileaks? Exposed emails that could have changed the course of the presidential election in 2016? Or was it a robbery gone terribly wrong?
Were Seth’s parents coerced or threatened to to the point that they would proclaim that he had nothing to do with the leaked emails? We may never know but it appears that they have no proof one way or another to make such a claim.
The fact that so many people have put up so much reward money indicates that the narrative of the MPD is highly suspect. In addition, Wikileaks admitted that Rich was the one that gave them the emails that they published.
One America News summarizes Rich’s highly suspicious death and some of the possible links to his death.
