McCarthy was right – He just went about proving the case of communists in government the wrong way

The NSA has declassified a trove of documents that reveal KGB communications with hundreds of communists working within our federal government.

One example: TOP SECRET Report No. 1657, dated 27 November 1944 | Link to NSA archive: 27nov_mrs_rosenberg

In this document, code name LIBERAL is Julius Rosenberg. The document calls out his wife Ethel Rosenberg by her real name.


You can review all the declassified, decoded VENONA messages from the NSA website at https://www.nsa.gov/news-features/declassified-documents/venona/dated/1944/

On June 19, 1953, Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were executed by electric chair in Sing Sing Prison in Ossining, New York.

At trial, the Rosenbergs declared their innocence. Naturally, the Rosenberg sons Michael and Robert, six and ten years of age when their parents were executed, wanted very much to clear their parents of wrongdoing, but upon release of the VENONA papers in the 1990s they came to realize and acknowledge their parents were, in fact, Soviet spies. Learn more about Julius Rosenberg from his biography.

Senator Joseph McCarthy (R-WI) was correct on the fact of communist spies in U.S. government, but his theatrics and his desire for fame backfired. The truth about communist infiltration essentially legitimized communism in the U.S.A.

Are there communists in our government today? There were well-known communists serving in the administration of Barack Obama.

Van Jones became a communist while involved with San Francisco radicals. He came to know communists while in jail where he and they were incarcerated. In his own words, “I met all these young radical people of color — I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of… I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary…I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th. By August, I was a communist.” [Reference: East Bay Express – The New Face of Environmentalism 11/2/2005]

Former President Barack Obama told a group of young people in Argentina not to worry about the differences between capitalism and communism and “just choose from what works.” [The Washington Times, March 25, 2016]

Why would Obama sanction communism? Consider his parentage, his upbringing, his mentors and his associations. His parents were communists, his grandparents were communists, his mentors were communists, and his liberal education inspired communism.

As you will learn from the above video, Obama lauded Fidel Castro and Cuban communism.

Investors Business Daily referred to communists in the Obama administration as “Red-diaper babies”. IBD describes Jeh Johnson in an article titled Add Homeland Security’s Jeh Johnson To List Of Obama Red Diaper Babies. In this article,  IBD calls out “top White House advisor Valerie Jarrett, former political advisor David Axelrod and President Obama himself”.

Is communism truly alive in America today? I would say even more than during WW2 and the Cold War.

Learn from the Communist Party USA website how the communist movement is large and lively and at the heart of the Anti-Trump activities.

Communist Party Goal: Rebuilding the Communist Party in the fight against Trump, 26 November 2017

University of Hawaii: HOW MANY DID COMMUNIST REGIMES MURDER? “…the Soviet Union appears the greatest ‘megamurderer’ of all, apparently killing near 61,000,000 people. Stalin himself is responsible for almost 43,000,000 of these.” To these, we can add Cambodia’s Pol Pot, Cubas Fidel Castro, and China’s Mao.

Does communism pose a threat to American freedoms? Have you not heard about so-called ‘free speech zones’ on college campuses? An article in The Federalist, dated 23 August 2017 reports How American Anarchy Parallels China’s Cultural Revolution.

Tell-tale features of the communist movement in America include:

  • free-speech zones on college campuses
  • social justice activists (NFL anthem protesters, Black Lives Matter,
  • political correctness (aka fascism)
  • assaults on First Amendment freedoms
  • sanctuary cities that defy the Supreme Law of the Land
  • a growing atheist movement
  • anarchy

What’s the cure? No political action, no act of Congress, no executive order can stop the march of communism. Only divine, miraculous revelations of Jesus Christ to the youth of America can change the course.

Communism is the systematic plan of Satan to wipe out all vestiges of Judeo-Christian faith in the Living God as our source of peace and our divine provision.

In this year, the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, expect a global revival to sweep billions into the Kingdom of God. Let’s be aware global atheism, anarchy, wars, and rumors of war will greatly increase before the full manifestation of the revival.

Meanwhile, follow the direction of the Apostle Paul in 1 Timothy 2:2. “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.

SB4 – Fears and Facts

SB4 - immigration status on a whim
Addressing Fear

Many Hispanics dread being stopped by police officers for fear of being profiled. SB 1074 specifically outlaws racial profiling. Read the full text: 2012 Texas Law on Racial Profiling

Specific to law enforcement officers: Art. 2.131. RACIAL PROFILING PROHIBITED. A peace officer may not engage in racial profiling.

Does racial profiling happen? Indeed, it does. Why? My best answer: human nature.

Unjust and unlawful profiling by some police officers affects people of all skin colors and all ages.

The vast majority of law enforcement officers are good citizens. They are not superhumans. Some – a few – are incarcerated in Texas prisons for murder, sex crimes, and other felonies. Some, thinking they are doing us all a favor, willfully disregard the prohibition against racial profiling.

I appreciate the fear. Over six decades of operating motor vehicles, a few police officers have unjustly stopped me on the pretext of alleged traffic violations. After checking my identity against lists of wanted persons, I’ve gone on my way without a ticket. An obvious conclusion is the officers profiled me because my vehicle or appearance closely matched another person.

Twice in my life, loaded handguns have been pointed my way.

The first time, it was when an angry Native American man in Minneapolis threatened to blow my brains out. He expressed his anger toward all white people. Obviously, he didn’t pull the trigger and this is a story for another day.

The second time, a police officer right here in Rockwall pulled his handgun on me in an attempt to cower me into giving him permission to search my place of business in downtown Rockwall. The rest of this story will also be for another time.

Born and raised in South Texas, I also knew Hispanics that were grossly mistreated by cops.

The fear of profiling is rational, if not necessarily realistic. Supporters of SB4 should respect the fear. Gun owners also have stories, well-documented stories, on incidences of unlawful profiling by police officers. I’ve been profiled by ICE solely because my name is one of 12,669 John Whites in this country.

Deleterious Dichotomy

On August 30, 2017, Orlando L. Garcia of United States District Court for the Western District of Texas in San Antonio, an activist federal judge, issued a temporary injunction to pause enforcement of the law. NY Times: Federal Judge Blocks Texas’ Ban on ‘Sanctuary Cities’. (Grammarians will see right away the irony of the article’s title.)

Of note is the parallel between so-called sanctuary cities in Texas whose leaders claim to uphold civil rights and the hostile, un-civil behavior of local law enforcement in those cities toward lawful gun owners. For the record, the arrest and conviction rate of licensed Texas gun owners is less than the rate for law enforcement officers. It’s not a huge difference, but one that should teach uncivil chiefs of police like Art Acevedo (Houston), Brian Manley (Austin), and Dr. Joel Fitzgerald (Fort Worth) that their irrational profiling of gun owners actually violates state law.

The Bottom Line

The stated, legislated object of SB4 is to get criminals off the streets and into the hands of ICE.  As all law enforcement officers in Rockwall County have publicly stated, undocumented immigrants can freely report crimes without fear of deportation.

Action

  • LEARN – Know the law.
  • RESPECT – Be respectful of the opinions of SB4 opponents.
  • LISTEN – Dignify opponents of SB4 by listening with an intent to understand them.
  • SPEAK – Contact your State Senator and your Representative in the Texas Legislature to express your view of SB4.
  • PEACE – Be a peacemaker. Don’t set up lines of confrontation. Reason flies out the window when confrontation displaces peaceful debate.

God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called the children of God.
Matthew 5:9

  • PRAY – The Bible says we are to pray FOR, not AGAINST, all who are in authority.

Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.
1 Timothy 2:2

President Trump pardons former Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the liberals go nuts

President Trump pardoned former Sheriff Joe Arpaio. For what crime was he pardoned?

arpaio and trump - pardoned
Photo credit: CNN

United States District Judge Susan R. Bolton sentenced sheriff Joe Arpaio to prison for contempt of court. She ordered him to cease reporting illegal aliens to ICE. Yes, she ordered him to violate federal law – a federal judge orders a state sheriff to violate federal law. That was his so-called crime.

This morning I read via Twitter John McCain condemned President Trump’s pardon of Arpaio. Sen. McCain accused President Trump of not following the Rule of Law.

For the point of law, let’s understand what the president did. He followed Article 2, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution which states, “The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States…shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.”

The Constitution empowers the president to pardon anyone, anytime, for any reason except impeachment. Period. Precedent? How about President Bill Clinton’s pardon of a criminal fugitive Marc Rich.

It is John McCain and a rogue federal judge who do not follow the rule of law.

Now you know the rest of the story.

A ‘Hearing’ on the Border Wall – Are you listening?

I write to inform, not to foment debate. How can there be a good debate without the knowledge of facts?

Intelligent people are always ready to learn.
    Their ears are open for knowledge.
Proverbs 18:15

A great American pastime is the game of armchair quarterback. It’s a game in which we are all players at one time or another. Isn’t it easy to sit in the comfort of your home, calling better plays than the quarterback on the gridiron?

Armchair quarterbacks in Foggy Bottom and across the country are calling plays in the Rio Grande Valley, but quarterbacks actually on the field (the Rio Grande Valley) hold perspectives different from the armchair quarterbacks.

The people most affected by illegal border crossings and tandem crimes committed by illegalssteven r covey quote on listening want very much for the rest of us to listen to them.

The current border wall project isn’t a new idea. It’s already there. About 700 miles of ‘already there’.

It was our 43rd President George W. Bush who, on October 26, 2006, signed into law the Secure Fence Act. I defer to a PBS video produced July 3, 2009, that provides a broad view of the construction of a segmented fence across our southern border, its effects on U.S. property owners along the border, and the opinions of Americans whose lives have been dramatically affected by the fence.

Do you notice the title? PBS doesn’t attribute the fence to either President Bush or to President Trump. PBS rightfully tags the project “Obama’s Border Fence“.

Video source: PBS NOW, July 3, 2009

A current (August 12, 2017) report from the Austin Statesman titled Advocates stage first big Texas protest against border wall reflects sentiments of hundreds of brown-skinned and white-skinned border residents.

My wife and I were born and raised in South Texas, she, right on the border. Our viewpoint is not that of armchair quarterback. I suppose you could label us bench warmers who have seen and experienced Rio Grande Valley life since the 1950’s.

Where is the border? How many borders between the U.S. and Mexico are there? What’s the history of the Mexico-U.S.  border culture and economics?

There are three borders. The one you know about is the geographical (continental) border you see on road maps. There are two other borders not shown on typical road maps: the two immigration borders. Immigration borders? Isn’t that big river an immigration border? In a word, no.

U.S. citizens regularly drive across the border to shop or dine or just visit friends. Your present automobile liability insurance has you covered. Likewise, when Mexican citizens shop in Texas, for example, their Mexican automobile insurance covers them, as well.

The above holds true so long as motorists don’t cross the respective immigration borders (my term) without proper insurance and official permission (a visa). The immigration borders are officially called the border region.

us-mexico-border-region-CDC-map
The border region extends 37 miles south of the continental border, 37 miles north, 37 miles east into the Gulf of Mexico, and 37 miles west into the Pacific Ocean, as per the La Paz Agreement of July 8, 1966.

Historically, a chain of cross-border economic areas defines the official border region. There are Mexican citizens who live in Mexico and work in Texas, likewise U.S. citizens who live in Texas and work in Mexico.

There is a suggestion that Mexico should pay for the border wall. Is this reasonable? Do you know that over half of all illegal immigrants that cross our southern border are OTMs, Other Than Mexicans?

Reference:

Pew Research: What we know about illegal immigration from Mexico, March 2, 2017

Illegal aliens were deported at a much higher rate under the Obama administration than under the present Trump administration. Both liberal and conservative news services confirm this fact among these are the Washington Post, Politico, Newsweek magazine,  Vox, and AOL News.

Chinese illegal immigrants are second only to border crossings by illegal aliens from Mexico and Central America, combined, according to the NY Times, March 6, 2017. Unlike our neighbors to the south that cooperate with deportations, we have no such cooperation from communist China.

Combative rhetoric, devoid of facts, posits unproductive confrontation.

Do I oppose President Trump’s commitment to defending our nation? No. I applaud his boldness and courageous leadership. Do I suggest there is a dearth of knowledge on the matter of border protection? Obviously, yes.

Can we talk? Are we ready to learn?

Texas Law SB4 Aligns with Existing Federal Law

 

sanctuary cities
TX Sanctuary Cities: San Antonio, Houston, Austin, Dallas

 

The purpose of SB4 is to prevent local Texas governments, so-called sanctuary cities, from shielding illegal aliens who have committed criminal acts against persons or property. In effect, sanctuary cities harbor – this is the operative word – such criminal aliens.

Existing Federal Law

I refer you to the U.S. Department of Justice criminal resource manual available on line. Specifically: 1907. Title 8, U.S.C. 1324(a) Offenses.

Introduction to the Law

Title 8, U.S.C. § 1324(a) defines several distinct offenses related to aliens. Subsection 1324(a)(1)(i)-(v) prohibits alien smuggling, domestic transportation of unauthorized aliens, concealing or harboring unauthorized aliens, encouraging or inducing unauthorized aliens to enter the United States, and engaging in a conspiracy or aiding and abetting any of the preceding acts. Subsection 1324(a)(2) prohibits bringing or attempting to bring unauthorized aliens to the United States in any manner whatsoever, even at a designated port of entry. Subsection 1324(a)(3).

Unlawful Harboring of Criminal Aliens

Harboring — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii) makes it an offense for any person who — knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation.

Penalties

Penalties — … With regard to violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(ii)-(iv) and (v)(ii), domestic transportation, harboring, encouraging/inducing, or aiding/abetting, the basic statutory maximum term of imprisonment is 5 years…

Therefore, the law enforcement and city administrators of any municipality acting as a sanctuary city are in violation of federal law, subject to criminal prosecution and imprisonment of up to five years.

Texas law specifically targets sanctuary cities that do not report aliens detained for local offenses against persons or property. SB4 is not a broad sweep of all illegal aliens, just those DETAINED by local authorities who refuse to transmit arrest reports to ICE.

SB4 becomes effective on September 1, 2017.

Immigrants – Who Needs Them?

Debates and discussions on the subject of immigration policies go unresolved due to intransigent postures of the persons on either side of the issue.

us-immigration-and-naturalization

Does the United States of America need immigrants? This is a great question. Let’s ask a few more questions.

What is a sustainable population? For the U.S.A., a sustainable birth rate is 2.1 births per woman. In 2016, our nation’s birth rate was 1.9 births per woman.

us fertility rate 2016

“Today, almost 50% of women between the ages of 25 and 29 are childless. In fact, the highest rate of childless women aged 15 to 44 since the US Census Bureau began tracking it in 1976 was reported in 2014 when 47.6% of American women had no children.” – Population Education

How does the U.S. compare to some other nations? In 2016, the birthrate of Japan was 1.45 births per woman. In Russia, the rate was 1.77 births per woman and 2.18 in Mexico.

Do Immigrants Steal Jobs from Americans? Another great question. Let’s test the job market.

How many posted job openings go unfilled? The following article from Forbes reports,

At a recent media event touting the need for apprentice programs, Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka pointed to the latest news from the U.S. Department of Labor: There are currently 6 million job openings in the United States.

The data come from the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS), which is released monthly. The survey reports an increase of 400,000 job openings at the end of April 2017 as compared to April 2016.

The job market is so strong that businesses and economists believe the inability to find workers is harming economic growth and could encourage companies to move operations. Zimmer Biomet, a maker of artificial orthopedic devices located in Warsaw, Indiana, cannot find sufficient workers for its factory. “It is struggling to find enough workers, despite offering some of the region’s best pay and benefits,” according to the Washington Post.

What is the future of a nation for which the birth rate cannot sustain it?

I propose my fellow Americans set aside intransigence on either side of the immigration issue to take the time to question the present and future of our nation with respect to sustaining the population and our common prosperity.

While our nation was founded on solid Christian principles, the principles don’t fund functions of government. Taxpayers do this. Government tends to uphold spending as the birthrate declines, leaving the next generation of Americans saddled with ever greater levels of taxation.

One can argue that the federal government has an insatiable appetite to spend. While both parties claim to want to reign in spending, both seem to try to outdo the other while in control of Congressional ‘purse strings’.

Debates are healthy because they lead to finding common ground essential to making America great again.

The Big Question of the Hour: Is President Trump anti-Muslim?

Bloomberg headline, March 14, 2017: Saudi Prince Sees Trump as True Friend to Muslims

The ACLU for which the political director is a Muslim activist falsely claims President Trump violates Muslims First Amendment right to Freedom of Religion? The Obama-appointed judge agrees? But, the Saudi kingdom disagrees and you don’t get more Muslim than the country where Islam was founded.

What I want President Trump to know:

  1. The three branches of federal government are not co-equal. There is a hierarchy of authority that was set in place by the Founding Fathers and this hierarchy self-identifies in the first three articles of the Constitution: Most powerful is the Legislative branch (Article I), second most powerful is the Executive branch (Article II), and least and last of all the Judicial branch (Article III). Read Dispelling the Myth of Co-Equal Branches of Government
  2. A judge’s ruling is not law. It’s an opinion. Period. Paragraph second of Article VI of the U.S. Constitution makes this so clear even a child can understand what constitutes the Supreme Law of the Land.
  3. Laws crafted by the Legislative branch and Treaties ratified by the Senate are the Supreme Law of the Land.
  4. Judges are constitutionally bound by the law, not their personal agendas, not their personal opinions, not by political debts to the president who appointed them.
  5. President Trump is acting well within the law: 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act, a.k.a. the McCarran-Walter Act (An act to revise the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality; and for other purposes)

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

Read the law yourself: 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act, a.k.a. the McCarran-Walter Act

I call on U.S. Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz to demand a congressional investigation of probable criminal acts perpetrated by former president Barack Obama acting through his well-funded subversive organization called Organizing For Action.
