On Sunday I wrote my preview of what I deemed the DNC convention would be about, and it has been an incredible two days. Now, I must admit, I got in late last night, tired, and did not watch the speech delivered by former President Bill Clinton.
My rationale is simple: no amount of soaring rhetoric can make me see his wife, Hillary Clinton, as anything other than a pathological liar, an elitist, and someone who abandoned Americans to die.
Hillary Clinton mishandled classified material — gross negligence — which FBI Director Comey renamed as “careless.” Look into the eyes of any young Soldier, Sailor, Airman, or Marine with a security clearance and explain to them why they are punished for “carelessness” when it comes to handling classified material…but the person wanting to be commander in chief is not.
I’m quite sure William Jefferson Clinton did his doggone best to convince us Hillary Clinton is the perfect and caring mom, cut from the same cloth as June Cleaver…yes, I am dating myself. The New York Times bestseller out there by the former Secret Service agent tells us exactly who Bill and Hillary Clinton are.
Furthermore, I am somewhat tired of the presidential identity politics of “historic moments.” Eight years ago, everyone was crying about the historic moment for the first black president. It’s time we Americans stop selecting leaders based on features, color or gender. When will we do so based on content of character?
The historic moment of Barack Obama has resulted in record deficits, debt, and unemployment. We’ve seen an incredible and historic rise in poverty and food stamp rolls. We are witnessing a president who “historically” may end up never achieving a three percent GDP growth rate in eight years.We have a president who has historically decimated and bankrupted our coal industry and our military. And so horribly — and historically — Barack Obama gave birth to the most vile, vicious and barbaric evil the world has known since Nazi Germany, the Islamic State. We’ve seen the historic rise of the global Islamic jihad over these past seven-and-a-half years.
Y’all had enough of the realistic historical moments? For all my beloved progressive socialist fans who frequent these pages with their mindless drivel, what do you think are the most memorable accomplishments of Hillary Clinton as first lady (Hillarycare), a carpet-bagging U.S. Senator from New York, or as a failed secretary of state (Russian reset button?). I know, she fought for human rights in Myanmar and racked up some serious frequent flyer miles. Then again, Hillary Clinton is well prepared to be commander in chief — after all, she did land in Bosnia under SCUD attack, no, ambushed, sniper attack…crap, I can’t remember.But, this will be the modus operandi of the new American Socialist Party for years to come. They’re not about principles, reason, facts, reality…nope, just about emotion. So we have the first woman nominated by a major political party to be president…big deal. This follows on the heels of the first black nominated by a major political party to be president. This is the result of political emotionalism, where you see grown people crying over a 74-year-old socialist.
But my observations aren’t just about the candidate; it is also the wide chasm, the clear delineation between Constitutional Conservatism and Progressive socialism.
First, let me explain something. When you hear about a “progressive agenda,” they are not talking about Flo and better car insurance. Philosophically speaking, the word progressive was introduced to America at the turn of the 20th century. European communists needed a mechanism, a gimmick, to plant the seed of their ideology into America — their longed-for target. They couldn’t just come out and admit what they were…so they rebranded themselves as “progressives.”
However, the principles of governance are very closely aligned with the ten planks of Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto:
1. Abolition of private property and the application of all rents of land to public purposes. Zoning laws, school and property taxes, Bureau of Land Management. Rancher Cliven Bundy knows all about that.
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
Paying your “fair share” – sound familiar?
3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
The “Death tax”
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
Government seizures and tax liens. Oh yes, remember that little problem with the IRS and Tea Party organizations
5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.
Hello, Federal Reserve.
6. Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State.
Your un-elected FCC, DOT and FAA.
7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state, the bringing into cultivation of wastelands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
8. Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
Fight for $15!!
9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries, gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of population over the country.
HUD is now mandating that low-income housing be available in more affluent neighborhoods to “promote housing mobility” and “address residential segregation.”
10. Free education for all children in public schools.
And now they’re pushing for free college. How else will you indoctrinate?
There is a definite philosophical sea change occurring in America. It’s the long war, the long march as Chairman Mao put it…Obama called it a fundamental transformation. And we’re witnessing it happen in the city that gave birth to this Constitutional Republic, Philadelphia.
We need to be educated on this, we need to discuss this, and constitutional conservative leaders need to articulate this.
And so the DNC convention trots out the new soviet-style politburo elites of the entertainment world to tell us commoners and peasants, the plebeian, and serfs, to sit back, and allow them to determine our lives — OBEY.
For the new American Socialist Party this isn’t not about America — hence why there were no American flags on the stage on day one. For the progressive socialist left it’s not about our sovereignty, because as Eva Longoria stated, “she did not cross the border, the border crossed her” — we have no sovereignty, and illegal immigrants with deportation orders can stand on the DNC convention stage and make mockery of our rule of law.
The American left isn’t about protecting us from the scourge Obama created in ISIS, as on day one, after 61 speakers, not one mentioned their existence. And sadly, that same day we learned of a horrific attack against a Catholic priest by ISIS sympathizers in Normandy, France. Normandy, a place that truly has historic meaning for America!
The progressive socialists will continue to obfuscate, deny and lie about this global barbarism and shift to a more palatable narrative, such as gun control. The leftists care little for law and order, and will go to any length to disparage and promote the violent assaults against our law enforcement officers — and for their consolidation of power and electoral patronage in the inner cities — the greatest evidence of failed leftist welfare nanny-state policies.
I will not be watching any more of the convention of the new American Socialist Party. I know who they are, and will not boost their ratings by watching a gathering of anti-Americanism.
The choice could not be any clearer in America…the question is simple, what’s in your heart?
