I Can See November from Here

Ninety-four days.

In ninety-four days, we have the opportunity to make history. I know you’ve heard that before, but it’s really true. This is the most important mid-term election in my, and possibly your lifetime.

This election is not, and should not be about “party”; this election is for the Restoration of our Republic. Who will stand with the Constitution? Who will swear allegiance to the Republic and not to special interests and not to party agendas? Who will up hold their Constitutional oath?

I’m tired of RINO’s, and I imagine you are as well. Those who claim the Republican platform as their own, but have a decidedly Progressive agenda (Cap and Tax, Health Care “Reform”, “Financial “Reform”), are dangerous to our Liberties and have created a festering boil within our Republic.
The Constitution is about LIMITED government and maximum personal LIBERTIES; not about limited LIBERTIES and a very personal GOVERNMENT.

My challenge and yours, is to be alert and active; study your candidates, go to Town Hall meetings; write to them; get to KNOW them; call them on the phone even. Ask them the hard questions such as “Where do you find the Constitutional authority for the government to manage health care for every American?” or “Where does the Constitution say that the government should be involved in private enterprise?” “How do you justify your vote on “X”?” “How do you intend to uphold your Oath to protect the Constitution?”

Our government is so bloated and top heavy, and it doesn’t need to be this way; it SHOULD NOT be this way, and we have to work hard to change it.

That being said, almost more important than November 2nd will be November 3rd.
Will we stay active? Will we stay alert? Or will we go back to golf and scrapbooking until the next election?

The Republic rests squarely on OUR shoulders.

Full Speed Ahead

I'm sitting at my computer tonight, reading the Congressional Record from January 10, 1963; found and posted by my friend Ann; Ann, you rock, thank you so very much for locating this! (Ann's notes are included at the bottom)
The record outlines 45 goals of Communism at work in America.

As I was reading, I heard through my open doors and windows, two loud trains, just a few minutes apart. This is usually not an issue; while the trains regularly pass nearby, I rarely hear them; tonight however, as I was reading this congressional record, the trains were unusually loud.
It was impressed upon my mind that Communism is that train, barreling toward the proverbial brick wall, poised to shatter the Constitution, our Republic and our lives, when it hits at full speed.
I am especially troubled by numbers 40 and 41; the family is a sacred unit in my worldview, and my children are my sacred duty; Communism seeks to destroy the family unit and the bonds of parental love and fidelity.

I leave you with the Congressional Record; take note of the assaults in progress on our lives and our Republic. I can also highly recommend Dr. Skousen's book "The Naked Communist"; very eye opening, and easy to read.

May God help us.

Current Communist Goals

Thursday, January 10, 1963

Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman's request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following "Current Communist Goals," which she identifies as an excerpt from "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen:

[From "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen]


1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

Note by Webmaster: The Congressional Record back this far has not be digitized and posted on the Internet.

It will probably be available at your nearest library that is a federal repository. Call them and ask them.

Your college library is probably a repository. This is an excellent source of government records.

Another source are your Congress Critters. They should be more than happy to help you in this matter.

You will find the Ten Planks of the Communist Manifesto interesting at this point.

Then Conquer We Must

Here is a stirring rendition of the Fourth Verse of The Star Spangled Banner; he says it's the second verse, but I can't find it in second position anywhere, so maybe when he was young it was sung as the second; I don't know, I don't care; these words must be emblazoned upon your soul.

The Most Memorable Epoch

“[Independence Day] will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.”

– John Adams

Independence Day!

Today we celebrate Independence Day; the day we declared our independence from tyranny.
What does that mean to you? What *should* that mean to you? To all of us?

I don't have anything great to expound tonight, I've been traveling and am weary; not just weary from travel, but weary of the great darkness that has come over our beloved Republic. The scales that cover the eyes of so many are hard to miss.

We are told that we, conservatives, must "open our eyes", we must alter our worldview; WE are the one's who are wrong.

I testify to you that we are not. We have truth on our side; we have Original Sources on our side; the Constitution is a divinely appointed document; the Lord instituted this law for our temporal well being during this, our probationary existence; it is also God's Law.
I also testify to you that the law has been twisted and manipulated to the point that many do not know the truth, we must teach them; there are many who choose NOT to know, choose not to understand; choosing darkness over light; because of them we must learn the truth.
We must reaffirm our stand with the Founding Father's, and continue to speak out when we see something that is unconstitutional.

In order to speak up, we must have the tools; I challenge you to read one of the following in order to be able to arm yourself against the darkness that's coming.
They aren't that hard, I promise; take your time.

I posted this excerpt recently on Facebook; it's from the Federalist Paper #48:

"An elective despotism was not the government we fought for; but one which should not only be founded on free principles, but in which the powers of government should be so divided and balanced among several bodies of magistracy, as that no one could transcend their legal limits, without being effectually checked and restrained by the others."

It is my belief that James Madison would be outraged to see what's happening to the Constitution; to the Legacy he left us; as would all of our Founding Father's.
I specifically cited "executive orders" as particularly abhorrent and worthy of Mr. Madison's contempt.
I was told there is no way I could know conclusively so I was wrong; not that the issue could use some research, I was just wrong and needed to change my outlook.
You can decide for yourself; the words and meaning are crystal clear to me.

We must once again, declare ourselves and break free of tyranny; take time to read and learn; the only way you can teach is to know.
These are known as "Original Sources", and are indisputable; no one can claim you are ignorant if you know what you are talking about.

May God bless you this Independence Day, have a happy and safe 4th, but never forget what it all means and why; be a Keeper of the Flame.
