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.

Super RINO John McCain Joins Democrats to Silence Conservatives

U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ, working alongside U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN,super rino john mccain introduced S. 1989 titled the Honest Ads Act that corresponds to H.R. 4077 of the same title. These two bills were introduced in the respective houses of Congress on the same day.

Read the full text of H.R. 4077 here HR4077_Dishonest_Ads_Act and the full text of the Senate version here Senate-Bill-S_1989-cosponsor-John-McCain. 

I quote from a summary of H.R. 4077 posted on GovTrack.us:

It would also require any website with at least 50 million monthly viewers — including Facebook, Google, and Twitter — to maintain a public list of any organization or person who spends at least $500 in election-related ads.

The public list would facilitate Antifa mob scenes at your home or place of business.

McCain and his anti-Trump congressional buddies dishonestly continue the myth of Trump-Russian collusion. As all America now knows, the collusion was between Hilary Clinton, the DNC and Russia.

More to the point – a summary from PrayForUs.us:

The “Honest” Ads Act from the Democrats and John McCain exposes individual church members to danger by requiring the public disclosure of their names and home addresses to any political thug who wants to harass or attack them and their family members!

This bill is designed to intimidate people from speaking out on any issue related to politics. As 2 Corinthians 3:12 states, “Seeing as we have such hope, we use great boldness (freedom) of speech.”

John McCain and the Democrats want to force churches into silence because Christianity is and always has been the main force opposing the globalism of the godless Democrats and their satanic open borders philosophy.

ACTION

Contact your two U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative. Tell them you want them to oppose the Honest Ads Act.

A Headline Begs for a Constitutional Briefing

federal court upholds prayer in congress
Let’s start with order and word counts in the first three articles of the Constitution, as amended.

The order of the three branches of federal government and the word counts are thus:

Legislative Branch, Article One, has ten sections and 2,268 words.

Executive Branch, Article Two, has four sections and 1,025 words.

Judicial Branch, Article Three, has three sections and 377 words.

Do you see a pattern?

Think in terms of a board game.

The Legislative Branch makes the rules.
The Executive Branch moves the pieces on the board.
In the case of disagreement among the players, the Judicial Branch resolves the conflict.

I ask again. Do you see a pattern?

The three are not ‘co-equal’; they do not have equal powers (authority).

A former pastor used to say, “Anything with two heads is a monster.” He was referring to those old Japanese Godzilla movies featuring huge multi-headed creatures. If we surrender ourselves to the myth of three co-equal branches of government, we submit ourselves to a tyrannical monster.

Have you not the time to read and study the U.S. Constitution?

Here is a link to the official document, updated by amendments. https://www.archives.gov/founding-docs/constitution-transcript

The Judicial Branch has no authority to either grant or to deny our natural rights.

Jesus Christ is the highest authority, our lawgiver, executor of the Will of God, and our ultimate Judge. As He said on the Mount of Olives, “…you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

A Fourth Reason to Fire Robert Mueller

Daily Caller screenshot

 

Deep state bipartisan operatives successfully empowered former FBI director Robert Mueller’s ‘witch hunt’ to uncover something, anything, that will serve to stop President Trump from accomplishing his agenda. Let’s never forget that his agenda is our agenda.

Mueller staffed his legal team with Democrats who are known Hillary supporters. Unable to uncover any evidence whatsoever against Donald Trump regarding alleged Russian collusion, Mueller has nullified the Fourth Amendment prohibition against warrantless searches. The special prosecutor has extended his warrantless search to ten years of businessman Trump’s financial records. At present, Mueller moves his inquisition into the White House to interrogate the president’s staff.

Mueller’s warrantless searches mirror the infamous British Writs of Assistance that were the basis for the Fourth Amendment.

Historical Background on the Fourth Amendment

In the decade preceding the American Revolution, British governors of the American colonies would issue Writs of Assistance, essentially an unlimited search warrant with which British soldiers could enter any home or business at any time without cause. They would search relentlessly, looking for evidence of illegal contraband. Finding any such, they would seize whatever they fancied without compensating the person from whom the alleged contraband was taken.

Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Let’s Make a Deal

Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange has an indisputable track record spanning a dozen years. Not once has even one of his disclosures of deep state operations been proven false.

Making America Great Again

My son-in-law has an old car he bought as a restoration project. He wants to make that car great again. To get there, all the fundamentals of automotive mechanics must be restored to the manufacturer’s specifications.

Unconstitutional laws, burdensome taxes, and a behemoth bureaucracy threaten the foundations of our Republic. The 2016 election of Donald Trump as our 45th President marked a turning point in our decline.

The special prosecutor was appointed ostensibly to investigate alleged collusion between the Russian government and the Trump election campaign.

To me, the President’s open acknowledgment of the sovereignty of God in human affairs was the turning point.

President Trump is a threat to the Washington establishment and an ally of patriotic Americans.

How do we make America great again? We restore Constitutional order and we honor our creator.

Creation of the Bill of Rights wasn’t the outcome of lobbyists pouring money into congressional campaign coffers. The first ten amendments came to us through lessons learned under the tyrannical British government.

If lawmakers on both sides of the aisle put America first over partisan interests, Mueller will be fired and corrupt officials will be exposed.

If I had the President’s ear, I would urge him to make the deal with Julian Assange. Mueller’s abuse of the Fourth Amendment is sufficient reason to fire him.

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.
