A Great Day to support H.R. 204 to Get US out the UN

October 24 has been celebrated as United Nations Day since 1948. UN Day marks the anniversary of the entry into force ( in 1945) of the UN Charter The United Nations officially came into being.   Secretary-General António Guterres put out his message for 2019 (From UN.org)

United Nations Day highlights the enduring ideals of the Charter, which entered into force on this date 74 years ago.Amid stormy global seas, the Charter remains our shared moral anchor.  At this time of turbo-charged change, the United Nations remains focused on the real problems of real people.

We are working for a fair globalization and bold climate action.We are pushing for human rights and gender equality — and saying “no” to hatred of any kind.

And we are striving to maintain peace – while bringing life-saving aid to millions caught up in armed conflict.The United Nations itself is becoming ever more agile and accountable as we enhance support to countries.

Next year marks the Organization’s 75th anniversary.  This milestone is a critical moment to shape our future, together. I invite you to join the conversation. 

Together, let us advance the well-being of “we the peoples”.

Notice how they have bastardized the use of We The People from the U.S. Constitution. They do not mean to give any power or rights to you as a person for your own personal liberty and prosperity. You are meant to be used a a taxable entity for their global plans.

Top 10 Reasons Why the U.S. Should Get Out of the UN:

1. UN grants rights that it can cancel; U.S. recognizes God-given rights that are unalienable and cannot be canceled.

2. UN seeks to disarm American citizens.

3. UN is a lawless body that violates its own Charter’s Article 2 that forbids intervening in domestic affairs of member states.

4. Each of the 10 men who have served as UN Secretary-General has been a Communist or a Socialist.

5. Several portions of the UN Charter, such as Article 25, override the U.S. Constitution.

6. UN “Regional Alliances,” such as NATO and SEATO, plus the UN itself rule our nation’s military. ( read the book Changing Commands by John McManus )

7. UN leaders oppose national sovereignty and favor a UN-led world government.

8. State Department officials bow to UN instead of upholding the U.S. Constitution.

9. Dozens of UN agencies headquartered around the world are building UN power over all nations.

10. The UN seeks disarmament of all nations leading to it alone having a military arm.

Fortunately more people are realizing that sending US taxpayer money to fund the UN is unconstitutional spending by our government.

A great first step was done to stop sending 360 million to the UN Relief and Works Agency , NOW IS THE TIME TO STOP THE REST OF MONEY

going to this UN- AMERICAN globalist organization.

(United States of America 22 % of the UN operating budget –  674 million requested by the UN for 2019 )

TAKE ACTION TODAY- TELL Congress: Preserve Our National Sovereignty
By Enacting Appropriate Measures to Get US Out! of the UN

Phone your U.S. representative (202-225-3121) and both of your U.S. Senators (202-224-3121) and use one or more of the above reasons to urge them to take the appropriate actions (cosponsor and pass H.R. 204 in the House; introduce, cosponsor, and pass a companion bill in the Senate) to Get US Out! of the United Nations.

Globalists, and the mainstream media, have been promoting the issue of ‘climate change’ based on several false premises. First, there is no consensus among scientists on this issue. There are numerous scientists who disagree with the concept that man is destroying our planet. Our climate has, in fact, been constantly changing for hundreds (probably thousands) of years.

‘Climate alarmists’ have been caught manipulating the data to make changes in our climate appear worse than they are. Also, as Oxford University Ph.D. geologist Dr. Roger Higgs has stated, “Geologists know climate change unrelated to atmospheric CO2 occurred throughout earth’s…history. Yet The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (the IPCC) has no geologists among the hundreds of appointed authors” (of its recent assessment reports). 

The worst polluters are socialist nations such as China and India. Our phenomenal technology in the U.S. has been responsible for making our air and water cleaner. The real agenda behind the so-called climate change movement is to increase the power of government, particularly global government (such as The United Nations). What legacy will we give our children if we leave them in a cleaner world, but one without without freedom?

ROOK TO PAWN

Here we go again. Just a run of the mill news story….changes at the White House again ….Ho Hum ……Wait a minute -How did President Trump pick him ? What are  this gentleman’s credentials you ask ? Answer : He  (Matt Pottinger- in case the photo did not show )  is a member of the Counsel on Foreign Relations ( CFR ) . Screen shot of membership list as of Monday 9/23/2019CFR people 009

 

Foremost by far among the organizations most closely associated with the Deep State is the Council on Foreign Relations, commonly known by its members, friends, and foes as the CFR. As the premier organization promoting world government for the past century, the CFR has made glob­alism the byword that it is today. And its members, operating from the White House and top Cabinet posts, have implemented CFR globalist policies as our nation’s official policies, with the inevitable (and intended) consequence that we have become more and more entangled in sovereignty-destroying regional and global arrangements. Criticizing the Deep State while failing to note the CFR’s central, crucial role in this decades-long Deep State subversive proc­ess is akin to writing a supposed exposé of organized crime in America and never mentioning the Mafia! If the globalist malefactors remain nameless and their criminal actions are not specifically exposed, they have very little to fear from rants against the Deep State and globalism.No other organization comes close to matching the CFR’s record for placing its members into the top posts of America’s government over the past century. Using the CFR’s own published membership rosters, Thompson lists the U.S. presidents, secretaries of state, secretaries of defense, secretaries of the treasury, and other Cabinet secretaries who are (or were) CFR members, as well as under secretaries, assistant secretaries, deputy secretaries, ambassadors, and other officials. Particularly important are the secretaries and chiefs of staff of the military services and the heads of our intelligence agencies who are (or have been) CFR members. Over the decades, the CFR has achieved a near lockhold on these critical power centers as well.

In the Shadows of the Deep State shines a timely and much-needed searchlight onto, as the subtitle says, “A Century of Council on Foreign Relations Scheming for World Government.” However, Thompson, CEO of The John Birch Society, does more than merely chronicle the malignant influence of the CFR over the past 100 years. Those who have read his massive tome To the Victor Go the Myths & Monuments know that Thompson has done extensive historical research into the revolutionary socialist and communist movements of the 18th and 19th centuries, as well as parallel studies of the elites who have supported these movements. He weaves threads of this earlier volume into this present study, demonstrating that as important as the CFR is currently in the globalist scheme of things, it is merely the publicly visible brain hub of a much larger, shadowy conspiracy that extends back prior to the Council’s incorporation in 1921.

Millions of Americans are angry and concerned over Common Core, the UN’s Agenda 21/Agenda 2030 program, the migration/refugee crisis, our broken borders, endless no-win wars, unsustainable spending and our national debt abyss, our regulatory morass, and sovereignty-destroying/job-destroying trade pacts. All of this, and much more, Thompson shows, should be laid to the blame of the CFR “wise men” (as they refer to themselves), who have been the authors of and instigators of these destructive welfare state/warfare state policies and programs. This Marxian transformation has been aided, abetted, and directed virtually every step of the way by leading operatives of the Council on Foreign Relations. They have been the chief promoters of every major push to concentrate state power over every sphere of life — first at the national, then regional, then global level — whether it be education, healthcare, taxation, welfare, housing, banking, transportation, energy, trade, etc.

They have enormous resources and are far advanced on their treasonous scheme, but they are by no means invulnerable. However, if we do not take proper, informed, concerted action, they will succeed. Thompson shows that there are effective actions that every American can take, regardless of individual circumstance, to expose and oppose the Deep State plans for global tyranny.

Many Americans erroneously believe that the Constitution’s “general welfare” clause serves as justification for congressional spending on anything that can muster a majority vote. That surely wasn’t the vision of the Framers.

In 1798 Thomas Jefferson wrote: “Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but only those specifically enumerated.” “Specifically enumerated” referred to the listing of congressional powers found in Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution.

James Madison elaborated on this limitation in a letter to James Robertson: “[W]ith respect to the two words “general welfare,” I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.”

President Grover Cleveland was the king of the veto. He vetoed literally hundreds of congressional spending bills during his two terms as president in the late 1800s. His reason, as he often said: “I can find no warrant for such an appropriation in the Constitution.”

LET’S HAVE THIS HAPPEN AGAIN WITH TODAY’S CONGRESS SINCE THE CONSTITUTION WAS INTENDED TO MAXIMIZE PERSONAL LIBERTY AND MINIMIZE GOVERNMENT. IT IS UP TO US TO HOLD CONGRESS ACCOUNTABLE.

LEARN WHY WE SHOULD AND HOW WE CAN ACHIEVE IT AT WWW.JBS.ORG

Our Nation Is Heading Toward Bankruptcy

For a long time, people rightly accused President Barrack Hussein Obama of having the worst deficit spending to date. This was a true statement. However, President Trump has now take Obama’s place, with the worst deficit spending yet in American history: The federal government spent a record $3,727,014,000,000 in the first ten months of fiscal 2019 (October through July)

Well folks the numbers are in and it is not looking good. The Trump Administration has fully abandoned the principles of financial restraint.  The Jeffersonian ideal the “the Government that governs least governs best“ is not in play at all.

The 2019 4.1 trillion dollar budget still keeps all the unconstitutional departments funded, such as

The EPA (started in the Nixon era) The Budget requests $5.4 billion for EPA for FY2019,

HUD, DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT (started in the Johnson Administration)  Their Budget requests $39.2 billion in gross discretionary funding for HUD.

Other agencies and departments that should not be receiving money but still are

Grants to Amtrak 2019 (proposed): $738 million

and the plenty of money is still going to the CFR controlled State Department

State Dept. and USAID Development Assistance Foreign aid $28.6 Billion requested in foreign assistance for FY 2019

 If we thought we needed this money to be spent, just by allocating this one area of the budget (USAID), we could have funded and built the entire border wall five times over.

Also keep in mind that the federal government is spending more than $20 Billion dollars a year on subsidies for farm businesses.   About 39 percent of the nation’s 2.1 million farms receive subsidies; a sizable amount of these funds are going to giant corporations like CONAGRA, which has already benefited from the tax reductions  Why is this allowed to happen?

Furthermore the government is keeping excess personnel just mentioning one classification – 3,618 FEDERAL PUBLIC AFFAIRS OFFICERS   costing $368.4 MILLION.  This is on top of keeping The Ad Council well funded. It was the brain child of the great, big government progressive, Franklin Roosevelt. It works as an advertising agency for various charities and government agencies .The money is hidden within the various federal agencies by typically have a line item in their budget for public outreach. The Ad Council does not disclose what percentage came from the government and what percentage came from the private sector. In 2014, the Ad Council received about $32 million in funding to produce its ad campaigns. The Ad Council produces ad campaigns and distributes ads to basically every TV and radio station in the country.   They do not pay for airtime as a typical advertiser would.  It’s most recent campaign LOVE IS LOVE aggrandizing  LGBT conventions. As Thomas Jefferson proposed “To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical”.

Another campaign from them has your tax dollars at work to undermine the 2nd amendment called Gun Safety: End Family Fire. “Family fire” is a new phrase that refers to an unintentional shooting due to an unsecured gun in the home. These Public Service Announcements seek to inspire gun owners to make their homes safer when it comes to the storage and handling of their guns. Their solution is gun owners can protect their children from family fire by keeping guns unloaded, locked up, and stored separately from their ammunition.  Essentially there is no chance of having the firearm available for self defense of the home. With this approach the gun is merely a paperweight. Most responsible gun owners have gun safes so these false safety tips are not needed but are extravagantly promoted on your dime. What can be done to slow down the government’s P.R. machine? – defund it and close it.

Our own money is being used to undermine our Liberty, Standards, and Morality and is eroding our constitutional system. We need to see that this game is being played on us.

We need to turn off talk radio and stop listening to cable media‘s mantra of Liberal vs.  Conservative.   As we well know too well the Democrats promise to raise spending and raise taxes and Republicans promise to cut spending and cut taxes. The Democrats have generally succeeded in both of their aims when they have power. ‘We were promised if we gave the Republicans all three branches of government (which did happen in 2016), things would be different. Ask yourself: What major liberal legislation was reversed by the Republicans?? What real spending cuts were done?  Do we really have to opposing parties or do we have two corrupt ,monopolistic socialist parties working  for the same result,  to accelerate America’s conversion into a cog of the North American Union and turning us into persons that exist just to extract taxes from. Being ignorant of this will cost us in the long term. The only way to hold the federal government accountable is to make the American people aware of the problem. Now is the time for action. We need to have the people and the states take action to reclaim their sovereign authority and to assert it in defense of fiscal freedom.  It is now time to start refusing to participate in, pay for, or carry out any federal program or policy that is not absolutely allowed by the Constitution.

“I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size.”

“I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom.”

“My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.”

“It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or that have failed in their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden.”

“I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is “needed” before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible.”

— Barry Goldwater

Six on Two

1.Gun Ownership by the American Patriots:  James Madison, the 4th President of The U.S. declared, ” A well-regulated militia, composed of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country.” The federal U.S. Code defined the civilian militia as able-bodied males between 17 and 45 years of age who are U.S. citizens or have made a declaration of intention to become a U.S. Citizen.

At Lexington and Concord, colonial patriots initiated actions against British soldiers. It was a civilian militia confronting the British army. “The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.” said Patrick Henry, American patriot.

2.Background Checks : What about the argument that background checks would stop crime? In numerous cases, mass shootings have been carried out by persons who could pass a background check. The controlled mainstream media refuses to explore the documented link between these tragic shootings and the frequent use of psychotropic drugs by the shooter. In most cases, these mind-altering drugs were obtained legally, being medically prescribed.

3.CASE STUDY : Richard Mack                                                                                         Background check laws wouldn’t have stopped Richard Mack’s murder spree.         He and his accomplice killed Mack’s 72-year-old former employer. Richard Mack killed his former boss with his bare hands, by snapping his neck. After committing the crime, Mack fled to Mexico, where he murdered an American engineer by stabbing him nine times in his back and abdomen during an attempted robbery. Later, Richard Mack escaped from upstate New York Clinton Correctional Facility.   After escaping, Matt obtained a .20 gauge shotgun by burglarizing a house. He fired the gun during an attempted carjacking, but his shot missed.

The irony is that Mack missed his target with a gun, but he successfully killed 2 other persons- one with his bare hands, and one with a knife.

Richard Mack was able to obtain a firearm (by committing a burglary) while officially incarcerated and serving a murder sentence! This is why we say,

IF GUNS ARE OUTLAWED, ONLY THE OUTLAWS WILL HAVE GUNS.

4.Guns in Prisons: Obviously, one location that is supposed to be gun free is among inmates at maximum security prisons. Sadly, this is not always the case.  In 1967, The Review of the News magazine reported on an incident where an inmate was able to make a submachine gun at San Quentin prison in California, a maximum security facility.  More recently, guns were smuggled into Riker’s Island Correctional Facility, and inmates shot other inmates with these smuggled weapons (apparently, as an attempt to sue New York City for failure to safeguard their safety in jail.)

5.Lessons From History:The book “Gun Control in the Third Reich” by Halbrook documents how the Nazis used gun control and gun registration in a successful attempt to disarm German citizens. One of the most common acts in any country attempting to install tyrannical control on its populace is to enact gun control as a means of disarming the local population. Another tool used by dictators to confiscate guns are lists of registered gun owners, making it relatively easy to remove guns from the people who already own weapons.

“All political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.” Chinese communist leader Mao Tse-Tung

6.Item: September 3, 2019 The city of San Francisco has just passed a resolution declaring The National Rifle Association to be a domestic terrorist organization. This declaration comes from a city which is completely unable to control its homeless population, which is responsible for a huge problem with public defecation. Earlier this year the city adopted “language guidelines” that rebranded “felons” and “convicts”as “justice-involved persons.”

Editor Update : September 10,2019 NRA Sues San Francisco For Declaring It a ‘Domestic Terrorist Organization’

Editor suggestion further Reading : District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570, was the first Supreme Court case to decide whether the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to keep and bear arms for self-defense. Prior to the Court’s ruling, the Firearms Control Regulations Act of 1975 had restricted District of Columbia residents from owning handguns except for those registered prior to 1975.  But the Court, in District of Columbia v. Heller, struck down the Regulations Act’s ban on handguns as unconstitutional, as well as the Act’s requirement that all firearms — including rifles and shotguns — be kept “unloaded and disassembled or bound by a trigger lock”.

 

Sad Anniversary of this day in 1983

Congressman McDonald’s tenure both in Congress and as chairman of the John Birch Society was cut short when the commercial airline flight he was traveling aboard, Korean Air Lines 007 was reportedly shot down by a Soviet Sukhoi Su-15 interceptor over Sakhalin Island, on September 1, 1983. (further reading: Day of the Cobra)

Many parallels exist between John Birch and Larry McDonald humbly serving our country. Help us bring about awareness, so that both of them did not die in vain.

Congressman McDonald’s tenure both in Congress and as chairman of the John Birch Society was cut short when the commercial airline flight he was traveling aboard, Korean Air Lines 007 was reportedly shot down by a Soviet Sukhoi Su-15 interceptor over Sakhalin Island, on September 1, 1983.(further reading:  Day of the Cobra/ See Photo )

Lawrence Patton McDonald was the second chairman of The John Birch Society, following JBS Founder Robert Welch’s promotion to chairman emeritus on March 14, 1983. McDonald held the position of JBS chairman in tandem to serving as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, representing Georgia’s 7th congressional district ( D)

Larry McDonald was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on April 1, 1935 to Harold McDonald, Sr. and Callie Grace Patton, a cousin of U.S. Army General George S. Patton. Following the tradition of his father and grandfather, Larry pursued a career in medicine as an urologist. In 1953, he graduated and completed his pre-medical training from Davidson College and was then accepted into Emory Medical School, just prior to his 18th birthday. Upon graduating from Emory in 1957, Larry McDonald became the second youngest physician in Georgia state history at the age of 22. His father Harold was the youngest physician in the state’s history.

Upon graduation from Emory University, McDonald joined the U.S. Navy, where he served four years in active duty as a physician and flight surgeon. While in the Navy, he interned at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and then served as a flight surgeon in Reykjavik, Iceland. By the time he completed his four years of active duty, he had advanced to the rank of lieutenant commander. He continued in the Naval Reserves and eventually rose to the rank of captain.

McDonald continued his medical studies as a resident surgeon at the University of Michigan Hospital, in Ann Arbor. During this time, in 1968, McDonald also made his first run for public office, to the Ann Arbor City Council. He openly campaigned as a member of The John Birch Society in the Democratic Party primary, running as a “true” or “historic Democrat,” harkening back to the party roots of Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, and Grover Cleveland. A staunch Constitutionalist, McDonald rejected the New Deal and Great Society unconstitutional big-government policies that defined the mainstream of the Democratic Party.

Although he lost the primary election to the incumbent, an establishment Democrat, he nonetheless gained valuable insight into politics that would prove helpful in his future run for Congress.

In 1967, he became the youngest member elevated to the National Council of The John Birch Society. In March 1983, shortly before his ill-fated flight, McDonald became chairman of The John Birch Society. From the time he became a JBS member, he was a popular lecturer for the Society.

He gave numerous speeches and presentations, covering a range of topics, including: the economics of inflation, fiat currency, the history of America’s Founding Fathers and the Constitution, the rise of Bolshevism in Russia, the subsequent spread and threat of international communism, and the Deep State globalist agenda of both the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission.

Through his local leadership as a speaker and organizer for The John Birch Society and its chapters in Cobb County, Georgia, McDonald worked toward building an informed electorate. His hard work and diligence paid off, when the voters of Georgia’s 7th congressional district, which included Cobb County, elected him to Congress in 1974.

Larry McDonald’s tenure in the House was characterized by his firm support for sound money (gold standard backed U.S. dollar), U.S. withdrawal from the United Nations, exposing globalist think tanks and tax-exempt foundations, solid anticommunism, countering communist subversion, and exposing Soviet Active Measure’s including the USSR’s role in backing Marxist guerrillas and other leftist terrorist organizations operating in South America, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and the United States. When it came to voting, McDonald ultimately came to a decision based on the following three-point criteria:

  1. Is it constitutional , 2.Do we need it, & 3.Can we afford it?

This filtration process resulted in many “No” votes and the reputation as one of the most conservative and principled members of Congress. In an interview for the Philadelphia Inquirer, Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) said of Larry McDonald, “He was the most principled man in Congress.” McDonald’s principled stand was reflected in his voting record. Year after year, Larry McDonald scored perfect 100-percent ratings in the “Conservative Index” published by The Review of the News magazine, which was a forerunner of THE NEW AMERICAN magazine’s current “Freedom Index.”

Tragically on September 1, 1983, while en route to a meeting in Seoul, South Korea, to deliver a speech about South Korean and U.S. cooperation in the struggle against Soviet-led international communism, his flight KAL 007 was reportedly intercepted and shot down by a Soviet Sukhoi Su-15 fighter over the Sea of Japan, near Sakhalin Island.

In his life, Larry McDonald was recognized for his commitment to advancing and protecting the principles and ideals of liberty outlined in the Constitution; and in his memory neither he nor the knowledge he sought to have others know should be forgotten or rejected.
