Judge Roy Moore, The Establishment Will Not Be Spurned. But, Fight On, Alabama, Fight On!

Judge Roy Moore, you just did not get it.  I know, I know, you are a brilliant strict constructionist.  So brilliant are you that you defeated your enemies twice to gain victories to the Alabama State Supreme Court.  When you saw America surrendering to the immoral machinations of the Left, in 2003, you founded the Foundation for Moral Law to educate the public and promote current litigation activity aimed at moral and religious issues.  Your organization is anti-abortion, opposed to same-sex marriage, and supportive of public prayer.  Your ideologies and values were easy to embrace by the Right's voters.  You fed them red meat and they howled in celebration.  However, behind the political iron curtain, you were always a threat to the status quo.  The Establishment thought you were cute and deemed you a tool that could cloak their clandestine political and judicial pursuits as palatable endeavors on behalf of the American people.  They simmered at your ability to stand amidst the torrid of criticism that you faced when you refused to surrender the Ten Commandments to the Left.  They, behind your back, joked about you being a "good ol' boy" when you refused to surrender marriage to the LGBTQRSTUVWXYZ community.  You, Judge Moore, were merely a Dixie phenom.  A warrior for morality and black-robed preacher of the American way.  You were not a threat to the 695 - 495 - 295 Corridor of Washington, DC.  

Judge Moore, you just did not understand that you were not welcomed in Washington, DC.  Certainly, you are not welcomed amongst the Establishment.  You will pay an ultimate price if you ever left the red clay fields of Alabama for the privileged marble of Capitol Hill.  You would pay dearly, indeed.

"Drain the Swamp, Drain the Swamp!" 

Yes, the American voters stood on their rooftops and yelled this at decibels that the world would soon experience in bodily form.  Former Senator, now Attorney General, Jeff Sessions barnstormed, now President, Donald John Trump around the Roll Tide State promising that the status quo was dead.  The Washington Swamp would be drained.  Obama Care would be repealed.  Hillary Rodham Clinton would be locked up.  Noone would ever again deny the Voices of the American People.  We would Make America Great Again.  Judge Moore, you were part of the new, bold fervor of the "deplorable" man.  You told Alabamans that if you could not help the State remain sovereign as Chief Justice that you certainly would go to Washington to try to change it from there.  Resigning from the Alabama Supreme Court in April 2017, you announced your run for the vacated United States Senate seat, upon Sessions' confirmation as Attorney General of the United States.  The Establishment thought you were cute and deemed you a worthy adversary for US Senator Luther Strange, who was appointed to the vacated post by none other than then-Governor Robert "I plead guilty to two misdemeanor charges related to campaign finance law" Julian Bentley.  Yes, the Establishment believed this would be your last hurrah and what a noble way to retire from all things political such an ideological pain in the gluteus maximus as Judge Moore.  

"Drain the Swamp, Drain the Swamp!"

Alabama wasn't even on the radar during the Summer of 2017.  All America knew was that Alabama was a "safe" state.  It was Red from the Appalachian Mountains of Jackson County to the Gulf of Mexico shores of Baldwin County.  Alabama was going to have two GOP Senators in the US Senate no matter what.  We can yawn and focus on more exciting things like Kim Jung-Un and the Nuclear War, Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, or even better, Charlottesville.  Yes, America, nothing to see here.  Move along from Alabama.

What many did not see in Alabama is how reticent the GOP were to the Trump Agenda, the Cries of Revolution from the Citizenry, and America's sincere commitment to "Draining the Swamp".  The Establishment was so entrenched with its formidable brace against the people that they were willing to spend over $30 million in the Summer of 2017 to stop two ardent conservatives in the US Senate Race--US Representative Mo Brooks and Judge Moore.  

"McConnell is responding in kind. His super PAC is set to spend as much as $8 million to boost his favored candidate, recently appointed Republican Sen. Luther Strange. McConnell has activated his sprawling donor network and pressed the White House for more resources. And the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the Senate GOP campaign arm McConnell controls, has warned consultants they'll be cut off from future work if they assist Strange’s opponents."

Yes, the same Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, that could not get Obama Care repealed, increased the National Debt, and seems to be failing in tax reform negotiations on Capitol Hill, launches a "nuclear" campaign funding attack against the people of Alabama and their beloved Judge.  

"But it also underscores his struggles managing his narrow Senate majority, which were punctuated by the collapse of Obamacare repeal legislation last week after three Republicans broke ranks."

Despite McConnell's money, the people of Alabama were not having the GOP influence.  The polls daily showed the ever advancing number of voters favoring Moore over Strange.  The GOP threats from the 695 - 495 - 295 Corridor of Washington, DC did not demur the outstanding deplorable rage.  A week before the special election, Strange was polling well behind Moore.  So threatened by Judge Moore's potential primary victory over Strange that McConnell that he called upon the Swamp Drainer In Chief to publicly endorse the Establishment candidate Senator Strange.  It was Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee that convinced Trump to make the trek to Alabama and support Strange over Moore.  How did that work?  The Trump Rally was not enough to secure a Strange victory or McConnell's hold on the US Senate.  Roy Moore got 55% of the Alabama Vote.  Trump wasted his political capital.  McConnell lost his eventual control over the US Senate.  The Establishment once thought you were cute, Judge Moore.  You were now a threat.  Alabama and you would pay dearly, indeed.  If America has not learned what the Establishment can do the Trump Agenda then, they would certainly learn what it could do to "Drain the Swamp" Electorate.  They will learn that the GOP Establishment does not govern, the GOP Establishment RULES!

People of Alabama and the Deplorables Around the World, I want to explain to you that nothing is above or beneath those that serve the Establishment in the Belly of the Beast.  I understand that many of you believed by voting Trump into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue that he would lead the swamp drain.  To some of you, your faith is so great that you believe the author of the Art of the Deal would not compromise your allegiance for political favor with the Establishment.  To some, many of you believe that the GOP Establishment would never partner with the Marxists~Socialists~Democrats to control America's economic and political agenda.  I truly want you to understand, good people of Alabama and the Deplorables Around the World, that this is not a battle between Republicans and Democrats.  You are in a War to empty the Forbidden City and the Establishment will not surrender.

Regarding the Russia, Russia, Russia "matter" that has cost millions to explore and render no evidence, the Democrats were not alone in attempting to reveal "the dirt" on Presidential candidate Donald Trump.  Imagine how many papers could be sold if it were true that Trump was in Moscow with prostitutes and had urinated in a bed where former President Barack Obama had lain.  Yes, the dossier that has made what's happening in Hollywood with Louis C. K., Kevin Spacey, and Harvey Weinstein seems as innocent as two teenagers holding hands while riding the Ferris Wheel at the State Fair.  We knew it was the Democrats that funded this hit piece on Trump but the rumors persisted that Republicans were involved.  But who would work so hard with Fusion GPS on the Republican side of the aisle against Donald Trump?

Since its launch in February of 2012, the Washington Free Beacon has retained third party firms to conduct research on many individuals and institutions of interest to us and our readers. In that capacity, during the 2016 election cycle we retained Fusion GPS to provide research on multiple candidates in the Republican presidential primary, just as we retained other firms to assist in our research into Hillary Clinton. All of the work that Fusion GPS provided to the Free Beacon was based on public sources, and none of the work product that the Free Beacon received appears in the Steele dossier. The Free Beacon had no knowledge of or connection to the Steele dossier, did not pay for the dossier, and never had contact with, knowledge of, or provided payment for any work performed by Christopher Steele. Nor did we have any knowledge of the relationship between Fusion GPS and the Democratic National Committee, Perkins Coie, and the Clinton campaign.

If the Establishment would work this hard, do you not think, Alabama, that Judge Moore would be the next big hit?   The Establishment Will Not Be Spurned.

On Thursday, November 9, 2017, the Washington Post writers Stephanie McCrummen, Beth Reinhard and Alice Crites report:  "Woman says Roy Moore initiated sexual encounter when she was 14, he was 32".  The report advises that "Aside from [Leigh] Corfman, three other women interviewed by The Washington Post in recent weeks say Moore pursued them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18 and he was in his early 30s, episodes they say they found flattering at the time, but troubling as they got older. None of the three women say that Moore forced them into any sort of relationship or sexual contact."  So let me get this straight Establishment forces, just weeks before Judge Moore becomes the next US Senator representing Alabama, the world learns that he "allegedly" had sexual contact with underage girls when he was a middle-aged man.  Wait a minute, just weeks after we learned that Kevin Spacey, in a "drunken stupor"--it's always right to blame it on the alco-alco-alcohol--laid a 14-year-old boy on his bed in an attempt to rape him, we now learn that Judge Moore allegedly made sexual advances against a child.  

The Establishment wants us to believe that after nearly 40 years of public services as a district attorney, circuit court judge, state supreme court justice and then, chief of the supreme court, Alabama overlooked this former US Army Captain that served in Vietnam, record regarding sexual assault.  Really, Establishment?  In addition, the persons that allege these high crimes and misdemeanors against Judge Moore have themselves questionable characters and motivations.  Leigh Corfman allegedly has a history of making false allegations, charged with misdemeanors, and had issues with IRS.  She also has claimed several pastors at various churches have made sexual advances toward her.  Deborah Wesson Gibson is a Democrat volunteer for Roy Moore’s Democrat opponent Doug Jones and signs language interpreter for Joe Biden.   Yet, the Establishment wants you to jump on the line Alabama and place your hopes in a write-in campaign for Strange or vote for the Democrat.  

No, Ken, you misunderstand.  Must be all of those years of living in the Belly of the Beast that has you all wound up in conspiracy theorems.  It's a shame that you are coming against your own Party, just like Donna Brazile.  You guys need to stop it and just repudiate Judge Moore.   

Where does one go too boldly incriminate Judge Moore with scandal if you are confessed Establishment Republican?  Where do you go to prosecute Moore as a pedophile in the Court of Public Opinion, where the guilt is permanent and the sentences are eternal political damnation.  You go to John McCain TV on MSNBC!

“I don’t have the words to express my shame...What we’re talking about here, Chris, is a 14-year-old little girl. Roy Moore is a pedophile. He’s a child molester...There needs to be a repudiation, not just a rescission of an endorsement...He should be called on to get out of the race.” 
~~GOP strategist Steve Schmidt, who served as the campaign manager for Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) 2008 presidential bid

"The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying," said Sen. John McCain of Arizona in a statement. "He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of."

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn told CNN, "I find it deeply disturbing and troubling," later adding, "It's up to the governor and the folks of Alabama to make that decision."

Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins tweeted, "If there is any truth at all to these horrific allegations, Roy Moore should immediately step aside as a Senate candidate."

National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Chairman Cory Gardner said in a statement, "If these allegations are found to be true, Roy Moore must drop out of the Alabama special Senate election."  With that, the GOP ceases the money flow into the Judge's coffers.

DC Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, "This is a grenade thrown into this campaign."  
Yes, I added the Democrat from Washington, DC to imply the power of the Establishment.  By the way, Reporter Bruce Johnson represents the purity of media to judge falsely as fact since the culprit is a Republican.  It is good to know that accusing someone of pedophilia beyond the statute of limitations so that the charges can never truly be proven in the Court of Law substantiates the Media in condemning the person in whole.  Unless, of course, it was the alc-alco-alcohol.  By the way, Mr. Johnson, why not include the facts that the accusers have biased or questionable motivations.  I apologize.  That would be reporting the news and there is no room for defense against false accusations in the courtrooms of the media.  Especially, if you are a Christian conservative.

What do we really know?

Judge Moore has been found guilty of "allegations".  President Trump was found guilty of allegations in the courts of public opinion regarding the "Russia, Russia, Russia" scandal.  So much so, that the Establishment Democrats wish to proceed with a Constitutional Impeachment.  Yet, now, the White House urges Judge Moore to step aside because these allegations must be true.

What are allegations?  

The Online Etymology Dictionary defines "allegation" as an "action of alleging, formal declaration in court".  Its origins are related to the Latin, allegare, the seed word for "allege" meaning "assertion of a party to a suit or action, which he intends to prove."  Stop right there!  Is there any intention to prove these remarks in a court of law or to give Judge Moore the Constitutional right to "face" his accusers?  All please say, "Hades No!"  

In the days of "Teddy" Roosevelt, our esteemed scholars referred to this as "muckraking".  The efforts of journalists that practice this is not to get at the truth but, to demean the character of men and to spread gossip.  A muckraker is "one who inquires into and publishes scandal and allegations of corruption among political and business leaders."  They knew the power of smearing an opponent.  It does not matter if your party is for or against a behavior or has stood by someone that is guilty of said allegations, you must always take a moral high ground against your opponent.  Indeed, he or she does not have to be guilty of any said offense, they just need to appear guilty of the allegation.  Your opponent will have to go on the defense and then, waste valuable campaign time going off message.  He or she will be so focused on defense that the opponent can go on the offense with his message and "public opinion" approved condemnation of the opponent's character.  If done right, your opponent will cease to campaign altogether and literally die in the polls.  

Urban Family Talk's Lionchaser Host Lonnie Poindexter, while in Seoul, Korea, put it this way, "Let me share with you a little secret.  They are going to come out the woodwork with accusations all the way up to the election and then mysteriously disappear.  Why?  Because the checks from the opposition candidate will have cleared the bank by then."

Judge Moore, you are guilty of the "allegation" of pedophilia.  It does not matter that Kevin Spacey is guilty of pedophilia, for even GOP Christian conservatives would continue to watch him in House of Cards on Netflix.  Democrats are not ashamed to say that a "sexual predator" is an acceptable politician on their side of the aisle.  Democrats know that the Republican Establishment will bend to merely "the accusation" on their side of the aisle.  Democrats know that the Establishment finds them no threat for they can co-exist in power.  The GOP Establishment seems more fit in the role of barking chihuahua than roaring lion.  
The Washington Establishment and some White House surrogates are more willing to compromise than please the electorate.  Alabama, Judge Moore is now a serious threat to this country club called the US Senate.  

Democrats know that the GOP has been throwing grenades into the Trump agenda all year.  They do not want an "outsider" to succeed in Washington, for that threatens the intensive hold of the Establishment.  Are the Election Years 2018 and 2020 worthy of losing to the Democrat Party for the sake of keeping the rift-raft Christian conservative, Trump supporters out of Washington and out of the "Big Tent"?  You better believe it!  Alabama and the Nation at Large, if you want to reform America then, you better tell the Washington Establishment that you have "a pen and a phone".  You have a pen to write checks directly to the Moore campaign rather than through the GOP.  You have a phone and will call at least ten (10) other people to do the same.  I don't if President Trump wants to fight this one.  It might be a little strange.  However, if you want to Make America Great Period (MAGP) then, Alabama, you damn better fight this and force the US Senate to accept your Son.

Guard Thy Rights: When Advocates Bend to the Establishment, Citizens Need Be Concerned

"The prohibition is general. No clause in the Constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give to Congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretense by a state legislature. But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power, either should attempt it, this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both."

— William Rawle, A View of the Constitution 125-6 (2nd ed. 1829)

There is a constant drumbeat in America.  It is the Left's persistent, almost insatiable, need to control the past, present, and future through its mighty narratives and charming messengers.  Since the last Presidential Election, they have displayed their Resistance by a show of force and by deadly force itself.  They are protected by the Wealth of Wall Street, the Representative Power of the Establishment on Capitol Hill, and the Unrelenting Presentation of Myth and Rhetoric expressed as News.  What worsens this plight is the sincere desire of those that say that they stand with Samuel Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and George Mason as vibrant conservatives buckle when the heat of induced public opinion weighs heavily on the optics of the day.  The drummers and fifers of revolution doggedly play in the distance declaring that freedom and liberty are under attack from those that will never settle for gleeful compromise or a share of power.  Shall they disarm the citizenry?  Just as surely as those on the Establishment Right seek to conquest those willing to patriotically honor the Nation.  

There are, indeed, Urban American "conservatives" that find great ease in standing for what they deem is conservatism and yet, abhor the optics of standing with those that the Left condemn as "Alt-Right Conservatives".  The Urban "Conservatives", whom I would label wannabes, have spent generations attempting to find common ground and "convince" Leftists to partner in "changing the community".  They can not understand how those "Alt-Right Conservatives" could possibly waste their time boycotting the National Football League (NFL).  How dare you challenge the Leftists and their egalitarian protectors for "protesting the NFL's lack of patriotism"?  The wannabes portend that it is a waste of time to reject the NFL due to its mercenary patriotism.  They contend that we can't win over the Leftists if we protest their right to adhere to the First Amendment.  Number one, President Donald Trump started it and number two, the NFL is "too big to fail".  If you "Alt-Right Conservatives" keep boycotting then, you will miss good football.  You are not making any difference.  At least, not any real difference is being made by you Alt-Right Conservatives and the optics are really bad.

It's amazing that the wannabes never admit that it was the Left that initiated anti-Patriotic protests against the American flag, our military and law enforcement, and our National Anthem.  Even worse, the Left attempted to extort employment for their Che Guevara champion Colin "Take A Knee" Kaepernick by initiating boycotts against the NFL“There will be no football in the state of Georgia if Colin Kaepernick is not on a training camp roster and given an opportunity to pursue his career,” said Gerald Griggs of the Atlanta NAACP branch.  The wannabes persist that the Alt-Right should take no standard for the sake of optics yet, the Left may take as many standards as are necessary to promote their narrative and agenda to overthrow the Nation.  Yes, the Left can reverently boycott America and the NFL  at once but, you gosh darn patriots are messing up opportunities to find a compromise with them.  

The wannabes want the "Alt-Right Conservatives" to just understand how tough it is for them to go into the Barber Shop and declare the principles of conservatism. Their argument, "One more week of spreading the Good News of Tax Cuts, Regulation Reform, and Building A Wall and I would have been able to register everyone in the shop for the Republican Party."  What should the "Alt-Right Conservatives" do?  Maybe we can admit that "one hand up and don't point the gun in my general direction" will be an acceptable compromise.  Maybe if we agree to take down every Civil War statue in America that fathers will come home to raise illegitimate children, homicides will cease, and college students will switch their majors from social sciences and communications to science, technology, and math to reduce cultural unemployment.  Maybe if we would just apologize for the systemic racism that exists in this Nation, that was the first to abolish slavery by a War Between the States, and stand arm linked with each other singing kumbayah that they will allow us to stand and peaceably honor the National Anthem and the American Flag.  

Yeah, how is that theory working, wannabes?  

We allegedly hear from Colin that for the right price of employment that it can be done.  For the US Dollar, he would stand for the flag.  I don't suggest buying any NFL Player's Jersey until the embarrassment for honoring our Nation has been removed from the hearts and souls of the players.   

By the way, the results of the "Alt-Right Conservatives" is phenomenal.  According to Breitbart, "A new Rasmussen poll finds that 32 percent of adults surveyed say that they have stopped watching NFL football because of the protests while only a scant 13 percent said they are more likely to tune in because of the anthem protests."  I know wannabes say that is scantly anecdotal.  There could be no real cost to the NFL.  The players are still being paid.  Indeed, todat is today but, it is not tomorrow.  This one thing may impact the NFL Players pay in the 2020-2022 Collective Bargaining Agreement Negotiations: Television Ratings!  

The owners will not have to shop at Aldi's or Shoppers Food Warehouse anytime soon.  They are frugally living off a $5 Billion television deal.  However, payback will be a real female dog if ratings continue to fall.  If ratings drop, the television networks will have to reimburse advertisers.  At $535,000 for a 30-second slot on Thursday Night Football, that's a chuck out of the Leftist's Media Treasury that they certainly do not desire to lose.  A few more months and the prideful promoters of Marxism may return to NFL Headquarters and advise that the remaining balance of the TV deal will need to be renegotiated.   The owners will not make this their burden alone.  State and Local governments may find it more difficult to negotiate tax based financing for stadiums.  If capitalist consumers continue to take their kids to soccer games and wives to dinner on Sundays, the Fidel Castro t-shirt wearing players will see that contract negotiations will become tenser.  Veteran Day Weekend Boycotts shall surely make a poetic difference.  Yes, patriots, you have been successful despite the wannabes' chastisements.  

Imagine the wannabes' knee-jerk reaction to the mass political savagery in Las Vegas, NV.  O, how dreadful you "Alt-Right Conservatives" truly are.  You suspect a Leftist's conspiracy and profanely promulgate the claims of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).  As a fine, upstanding wannabe, I would not dare even entertain such gossip.  Have we not the time to honor the dead and care for the injured.  We can not by any means sling salacious tinder about those on the Left and their allies.  You guys make the optics look really bad.

It is this commitment to the purity of sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch as agreed to and reported by the Leftists that discounts the validity of query by the Right.  We must not consider any options that are offensive to the Left, for they possess the moral high ground in every mass incident that involves a gun.  The Left takes no moral allegiance to the individual incidents by repeat offenders in gun control cities like Chicago.  Such law offenders find the criminal justice system an appeasement organization that rewards those that live outside the boundaries of the law and curses those that abide faithfully the will of the empowered criminal advocates.  In fact, in such cities, the criminal is hailed as the victim and honored as hero.  Rather than implore the fullest inspection of fact, the wannabes condemn.  It is better to be seen as a uniter than divider in the court of public opinion.  This keeps a wannabe's visit to the "Curvy Couch", no matter how unlikely, certainly a possibility.

How routine is it for the Right to knee-jerk react to the Left?  It is as routine as Lebron James measuring the intelligence quotient of Ohioans.   The knee-jerk reaction by those on the Right to a mass shooting is more than a reasonable expectation.  Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blames the National Rifle Association (NRA) for the mass shooting rather than Stephen Paddock and Senator John Cornyn of Texas trembles:

“I own a lot of guns, and as a hunter and sportsman, I think that’s our right as Americans, but I don’t understand the use of this bump stock.  It seems like it’s an obvious area we ought to explore and see if it’s something Congress needs to act on.”

It is amazing that those with the responsibility of protecting the Second Amendment find it so easy to diminish its Constitutional role in American culture.  The Second Amendment is not about the rights of Bubba and Jimmy Joe to go hunting in the Ozarks one Saturday morning.  The Second Amendment is not about the rights of Marty Hayes or Massad Ayoob to participate in the National Trophy Infantry Team Match.  

"[The Constitution preserves] the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation...(where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." --James Madison, The Federalist Papers, No. 46

"What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms."
-- Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, 1787. ME 6:373, Papers 12:356

"Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms ... The right of citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard, against the tyranny which now appears remote in America but which historically has proven to be always possible."
-- Hubert H. Humphrey, Senator, Vice President, 22 October 1959

The importance of gun ownership is to secure the people from the knee-jerk efforts of those that would rather rule than serve.  It is the greatest assurance that a citizen may stand, in force, against a tyrannical, entrenched government.  If the Number Two Republican in the US Senate has forgotten his way then, I believe it is time to send a reminder to him, Texas.  In four years, Lone Star State, you may wish to send to Washington, DC a citizen-servant that understands the weight of his or her role in protecting our natural rights rather than attempting to appease these rights away to the Left.

Which leads us to the double-mindedness of those that are supposed to advocate hardest to guarantee and protect our Second Amendment.  There is one amongst us that appears more than willing to surrender our rights depending on the latest public opinion poll--the NRA.  There is one that remains strong and faithful to the foundations of our Constitution--Gun Owners of America (GOA).   On Thursday, when government rulers deigned that it was the bump stock that killed 58 people and injured over 500 and not Paddock, the NRA surrendered to the outcry for more regulations.  They released the following announcement via press release:

Despite the fact that the Obama administration approved the sale of bump fire stocks on at least two occasions, the National Rifle Association is calling on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) to immediately review whether these devices comply with federal law.  The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations.

On Sunday, the NRA received the Political Holy Ghost and backtracked on their earlier beliefs.  Chris Cox, NRA Institute for Legislative Action Executive Director, told Fox News Sunday that "it [NRA] would oppose an outright ban on bump-stock devices".  

What a difference three days makes.

GOA never bent.  They made certain on Thursday that America knew which organization would stand for the Constitution, even when it's not politically correct.  Eric Pratt, GAO Executive Director made it crystal clear:

“Gun Owners of America opposes a ban on bump stocks. Bump stocks were approved by the ATF during the Obama administration to help gun owners with disabilities fire their weapons.  Any type of ban will be ignored by criminals and only serve to disarm honest citizens.  Perhaps that’s why 91 percent of police believe a so-called “assault weapons” ban will have no effect or a negative effect on crime.  And given that 95 percent of cops think that a ban on large capacity magazines would be ineffective in reducing violent crime, it’s hard to imagine they would regard bump stocks any differently."

Makes you think, which of these institutions will really back the Constitution in the midst of political correctness onslaught: NRA or GOA?  Wannabes want you to believe that if the "Alt-Right Conservatives" would just give on bump stocks then, the Left would be willing to give on something else.  Yes, they have adopted the President Franklin Delano Roosevelt "New Deal" philosophy: exchange your liberties for government security.  Otherwise, the optics would look really bad.  Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas makes it abundantly clear that we must not surrender to the tyrannical state:

For those of us who work in marbled halls, guarded constantly by a vigilant and dedicated police force, the guarantees of the Second Amendment might seem antiquated and superfluous… But the Framers made a clear choice: They reserved to all Americans the right to bear arms for self-defense. I do not think we should stand by idly while a State denies its citizens that right, particularly when their very lives may depend on it…

Thank God that there are those that are willing to stand for freedom and liberty even when the Barber Shop Crowd would ridicule the rational.  

There is a constant drumbeat in America.  The Left has misdirected our focuses to a bump stock when gun violence is not the greatest threat to American lives.   The Left has initiated a full-on attack of America since 1972.  Abortion has left many Americans dull of senses yet, wannabes want us to believe that optics towards conservatives will change if we would not identify and publish this truth to the world.  We are not in a place to submit to give and take with the Left.  In Urban America, despite strict gun control, the Leftists allow the pursuit of violence.  The Left condemn conservatives for being unfeeling and uncaring to the point that they are willing to lose their jobs to maintain that narrative.  Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness matters not.  The Revolution matters only.  The Resistance is merely stepping it up with Jihadi alliances and radical insurrectionists.  The Left has but one objective: overthrow freedom and liberty.  The drums continue to play and will not cease until the objective is met.

Repeal the State and Local Tax Deduction: Ending the Leftists' States' Manipulation of the US Treasury

One of the best lessons that I ever learned about lobbying and federal subsidy came by way of my wife and daughters.  Although I saw myself as a hard-core disciplinarian parent committed to the principles of frugality, my daughters, and my wife, were far more wise to my weaknesses as a father.  Yes, I loved and spoiled my daughters.  They were so cute, so sweet, and so smart.  They would look at me with their adoring eyes as I threatened to pound flesh and they would walk away with only a verbal warning.  They were my babies and they knew how to stroke Daddy's ego well.

 "O, father, you are so wise.  Please tell us again your opinions on the Sixteenth Amendment." 

My daughters would normally ask me such questions at about bedtime, in my home office where the cable television link broadcast.  Swollen with great pride that they had chosen me as their historical link to American politics and economics, I was more than willing to bend the strict regard for their bedtimes and enter into a brilliantly lain outline of study on US Income Taxes.  I was more than honored that they sought my expertise, on a school night, and did not want to disappoint them in the delivery of my knowledge. 

Where shall I begin?  O, yes, they must know of Frederic Bastiat.  Indeed, indeed, they must.  For it is he who said, “Everyone wants to live at the expense of the state. They forget that the state lives at the expense of everyone.”  One of the great tragedies of taxation is that everyone wants access to everyone else's wealth, intellectual property, and assets so that their pursuit of wealth creation may be aptly funded.  Bully, bully, they are excited by such discourse.  They are so darling! 

O, yes, I will pass you the remote control as you listen so adamantly and nod your heads with such great comprehension. 

I will speak of the Great Progressive Republican folly of President Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt and the "Insurgent" Republicans in securing the federal income tax via Constitutional Amendment.  The sexiness of having a larger government with a bigger military was too attractive to the Establishment Republicans of the day and their socialist friend, Victor Louis Berger, in Congress, that they could not resist.  Teddy said, "Therefore, I believe in a graduated income tax on big fortunes, and in another tax which is far more easily collected and far more effective, a graduated inheritance tax on big fortunes, properly safeguarded against evasion, and increasing rapidly in amount with the size of the estate.” 

Yes, o, yes, ladies, you may turn from the football game to SpongeBob.  I can sense that you are very comfortable learning as much as you can about tax history. 

By the way, it was the threat of central governance that many conservatives feared would come to pass if the income tax passed Congress and became a Constitutional Amendment. 

Yes, ladies, you may have some of my popcorn and root beer but, not too much because it is late in the evening. 

Our Founding Fathers never wanted the Nation to have governance and economic power centralized in Washington, DC.  Created in the revolution of the taxation tyranny executed from London by the Monarchy, American Capitalists wanted a Nation that respected the natural rights of men, women, and children to produce profits without the inane pursuit of government to intervene or inhibit business growth. 

O, yes, baby girl, go downstairs and bring back blankets and pillows for you and your sister. 

However, from the time of the Mayflower Compact in Massachusetts, there have been those that wanted to socialize the arts and sciences of wealth creation, creating strong arm interventionists strategies.  William Bradford, in his journal, revealed the futility of socialism firsthand: 

“The experience that we had in this common course and condition, tried sundry years...that by taking away property, and bringing community into a common wealth, would make them happy and flourishing – as if they were wiser than God.”

"For this community (so far as it was) was found to breed much confusion and discontent, and retard much employment that would have been to their benefit and comfort. For young men that were most able and fit for labor and service did repine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men's wives and children without [being paid] that was thought injustice.”

“This [free enterprise] had very good success, for it made all hands industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been.”

Today, we call the artisans of the Mayflower Compact socialists.  No matter what you say or evidence produced, they reject any notion that the redistribution of wealth and control of production and prices by the government will fail.

Others have longed for a fiercely strong federal government regulating the authority of individual states, the engines of capitalism,  and fashioning society slowly into a socialist state.  These are known today as progressives and they convince the "working or middle" class to become jealous of the rich or those that inherit wealth.  The intent is to institute a government that makes the life of the poor less arduous, allowing monies to be directed by tax from the wealthy to improve their lives.

Daddy, are progressives Democrats that you don't like or Republicans that you do like?

O, little lady, that is such a great question!  I am so glad that you are listening to your Daddy.  Sure, I'll turn the volume up but, just a little.  I don't want your Mommy to know that y'all are up after your bedtime on a school night.  Babies, progressives are both Democrats and Republicans.  They are now known as the Establishment.  Their objective is to grow the government and restrict the individual.  They prefer to be the smooth operators of socialism.  They subscribe to the power of the pen and the calculator.  They use the pen to write legislation and their bureaucrats write regulations that go directly to the wallets of the capitalists, their sworn enemy.  The Progressive Establishment believe that they can tax and spend our way into human equality.  They, like the British loyalists during the Revolutionary War and the Federalists thereafter, believe that a strong central government and a central bank will assure the equality of mankind.  Socialists believe in the New Deal.  Progressives believe in the Square Deal.  Between the two, Americans end up getting a Raw Deal.

Daddy Ken, when did the Patriots give up the reigns of free capitalism to the Socialists and Progressives?

Unfortunately, the day Black lives really mattered--the War between the States.  Our Constitution naturally recognized the natural rights to liberty and freedom for every man.  However, there were many--White, Black, and Native American--that perverted our economy with slave labor and our politics with tyranny.  Yes, children, Blacks, and Native Americans owned slaves too!  These perversions of economics and politics were an offense to those that respected our Preamble's intent, "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union..."  In the Civil War, the Democrats fought to maintain slavery in their states and those destined to become states.  The Republicans sought the greatest economic and political embargo by abolishing slavery in all of the states.  During this time, President Abraham Lincoln sought a process that would cover the debts of the Civil War and fully fund the military.  He was quite successful in achieving each through the levy of income taxes.  The first time in American federalism that such an activity took place.  Lincoln got Congress to pass the Revenue Act of 1861 thus, creating the Bureau of Internal Revenue and collecting taxes both domestic and foreign.  The income and property taxes were deemed essential as a result of the Civil War.  The Lincoln Administration and Congress passed it as a "National Emergency".  During its 10 year existence, the Act allowed Congress to collect over $340 million.  The Civil War Debts were completely paid off. 

Knowing this, Americans began to question why any Congress or Administration would maintain the tax.  Due to its unpopularity, Congress finally repealed income taxes in 1872, although the Revenue Act of 1862 required the termination of income and property taxes by 1866.  Why the additional years?  Political leaders liked the new found power and influence that they had over the American economy.  They could promise to spend based on ideal pictures of tax revenue growth thus, creating budget deficits and national debt.  The greater the wealth confiscated, the more powerful legislatures would become in picking winners and losers in the economy.  The greatest champions of the federal power to tax income were the Progressive Republicans, Democrats, and Socialists.  In 1867, the Socialists demanded a graduated income tax.  In 1892, the Populist Party, which would later merge with the Democrat Party, demanded a graduated income tax through its Party Platform.  In 1894, Democrat William Jennings Bryan, three-time losing Presidential candidate, advocated for the passage of the income tax.  On May 21, 1895, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a direct tax on personal income was unconstitutional as a result of the case of Pollock v. Farmers‘ Loan and Trust Company. The lawsuit had been precipitated by the 1894 Income Tax Act.  The Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision stated that a “direct tax” on the “income of real and of personal property” was “unconstitutional and void.”  This only strengthened the resolve of the progressives and socialists to make income taxes law constitutional and replace Supreme Court originalists with modern pragmatists

Where were the Republicans, little ones?  In 1902, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Sereno Payne (R-N.Y.) led a conservative charge to repeal the Spanish-American War tax and several others.  This did not sit well with Socialists, Establishment Democrats, and Progressive Republicans.  They were completely upset that "capitalists and corporatists" were not paying their "fair share".  In a speech on April 14, 1906, President "Teddy" Roosevelt endorsed a progressive estate tax:

"Of course no amount of charity in spending such fortunes in any way compensates for misconduct in making them. As a matter of personal conviction, and without pretending to discuss the details or formulate the system, I feel that we shall ultimately have to consider the adoption of some such scheme as that of a progressive tax on all fortunes, beyond a certain amount either given in life or devised or bequeathed upon death to any individual — a tax so framed as to put it out of the power of the owner of one of these enormous fortunes to hand on more than a certain amount to any one individual; the tax, of course, to be imposed by the National and not the State Government."

The Progressives, the Socialists, and the Democrats were in lockstep.  Successful Americans would be targeted with the tax pen.

O, Daddy, you are so wonderful to explain all of this to us.  I like the way you also take command in raising the volume on the television so that you project your voice without disturbing the sound.  Please tell us why the conservatives did not stop the War on the states by the federal government.

Daughters, you are so perceptive.  I know your mother sleeps but, I will raise the volume slightly and project my voice more.  Whether Lincoln or the Roosevelts, the Progressives, the Socialists, and the Democrats understood that centralizing economic planning in Washington, DC offered federal legislatures greater power and influence than any individual state legislator could possibly muster.  There was an additional secret weapon that they could call upon.  In the 1862 Revenue Act, Congress gave provision for the deduction of state and local taxes.  Their rationale?  A fear that high levels of federal taxation might “absorb all [the states’] taxable resources.”  Such a rationale reveals the motives of the income tax advocates.  They were going to coerce, by excessive tax laws, the American citizen to accept greater government intervention into their everyday lives.  It would no longer be "We The People" but, become "We The Government". 
The Income Tax Power Lobbyists realized that the deduction of state and local taxes allowed high tax, high-income states to gain the greatest protections for their ideological pursuits.  The states with the highest taxes are [1] New York, $9,718; [2] California, $9,509; [3] Nebraska, $9,450; [4] Connecticut, $9,099; and [5] Illinois, $9,006.  The majority of these are Leftists states that subscribe to many Anti-American legislated policies.  The Left realized that they could pass their public policy experiment costs unto the rest of America through high taxes.  Wealthy taxpayers love it because it lowers their overall tax due.  States love it because it makes it easier for legislators to express support for costly bills.  Advocates love it because the public policy costs are passed on to others and not incurred in full by the citizens that enforce their recommendations.  In many of these states, conservatives have very little influence and certainly very few choices. 

If the Congress would eliminate the deduction of state and local taxes then, taxpayers would be forced to hold their legislatures to higher fiscal standards.  Progressives and socialists might reconsider their ways.  They just might surrender their ideological pursuits for the financial good of the common man.  Voters may accept a more conservative fiscal policy for their states and cities.  Wow, actually, this might make it easier to vote conservatives into a political office where states and cities are most liberal.  The Conservative Movement may prevail in California, in New York, and in Illinois.  Unions, environmental groups, and progressive and socialist defenders may lose their lobbying power in Washington, DC.  K Street may finally bow to the power of Main Street...

All heads turn and there is utter silence.

A lovely woman with a frown stands at the door of my home office.  She gives me and the girls "The Look".  Men, if you have never seen "The Look" let me forewarn you, do not ask for it or desire seeing it.  "The Look" is at once debilitating and dehumanizing.  "The Look" can crush cans without human effort.  It makes young men weep and old men tremble.  All sounds ceased.  I do not know how the television screen faded to black but, it seemed to know the presence of my wife and, I suppose, it did not want to subject itself to viewing "The Look".  The girls escaped between "The Look" and the doorway as if they had been kidnapped and were happy to see the SWAT team arrive. 

My wife revealed to me, as she sternly disinvited them from my office for the last time, that their only interest was watching television.  I was appalled!  How dare she libel my daughters and proclaim such accusations against their passionate curiosities?!  Unfortunately, I heard them at the bottom of the stairwell giggling and giving each other high fives.  My wife looked at me with such great pity.  How pathetic it is that a grown man could be so smitten by his daughters' cunning that he is easily manipulated into giving them privilege rather than justice.

It was years before I understood that my daughters were not interested in the Constitution, Economics, or American politics.  Let's hope it's not years before Congressional conservatives realize that breaking the Left's political hold on High-Tax, High Income Tax states and economic hold on the U. S. Treasury is as simple as eliminating the state and local taxes deduction.  Manipulation is a wonderful thing for the manipulator.  Wisdom is the key to freedom for the oppressed.  I pray that Congress is wise enough to use the key to free Americans from the oppression of the Left.  However, to believe so would be a maddening deception.  I no longer wish to be manipulated, except by my daughters.

Spelman: From the Genesis of Moral Liberation to the Revelation of Immoral Indoctrination

There is none other.

Howard University is affectionately referred to by many as the "Ivy League Institution of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU's)".  However, it is not ranked Number One (1) amongst HBCU's as one of the nation's top liberal arts colleges by U.S. News & World Report.  That title is jealously possessed by the women of Spelman College.  Claflin University, the first HBCU to surpass the benchmark of 50 percent alumni giftings, is recognized for graduating the most faithful contributors.  In fact, 52% of Claflin alumni provide the institution financial support.  However, very few HBCU's can compete with the financial contribution machine that is Spelman.  Between 1986 and 1996, the college raised $113.8 million, including a $20 million gift from Bill Cosby and his wife, Camille Hanks Cosby, whose daughter graduated from the illustrious educational mecca.  Such liberality of giving by others alleviates graduates of the responsibility of giving back to the institution.  In their frugality, Spelman alumnae, 32% in fact, contributed more than $2 million to the College during the fiscal year 2017.  Difficult to comprehend why so little when 97% of the students receive financial aid, however, it apparently is par for the course in overall college giving.

Literally, Spelman is the King--eh, Queen--of HBCU's.  As much bluster is uttered among the collegiate society and HBCU graduates, the truth reigns: "As Spelman Leads, All Others Follow".  Yes, Morehouse Men, I know that you are offended, feeling dissed that the women are judged your leaders.  However, when your 4-year graduation rate rises from a paltry 39% to an elite 69%, as Spelman's, then, you will take your place.  It is no longer enough to tell people that Dr. Martin Luther ("Luffa") King, Jr. graduated from your fine institution.  When 61% of your admission can not follow in his foot steps, there is a real problem.

I digress.

Spelman has no overall rival.  This is why their unfortunate Board Room acceptance of the Black Lives Matter / Radical LGBTQ Agenda should be of significant concern to those considering college or university admissions for their high school student in 2018 and beyond.  Spelman College, this month, announced that it will begin admitting transgender students to the renowned black women's college.  President Mary S. Campbell, in writing to the "sisterhood", advised:

"As a result of this extensive study, I, as president, along with the Spelman leadership team, and the Board, concur on the following admissions and enrollment policy: Spelman College, a Historically Black College whose mission is to serve high-achieving Black women, will consider for admission women students including students who consistently live and self-identify as women, regardless of their gender assignment at birth. Spelman does not admit male students, including students who self-identify and live consistently as men, regardless of gender assignment at birth. If a woman is admitted and transitions to male while a student at Spelman, the College will permit that student to continue to matriculate at and graduate from Spelman."

In the Leftist's ever evolving definition of gender, I am more confused as ever.  Maybe I should not be since I spoke with my Redeemer this morning and he advised me that no "hormone" shot can alter my Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA).  He created male and female and that process has not stopped since the Garden act of humanity.  Yet, a much wiser task force than the Trinity hails the environmental and intentional alterations beyond the primary scope of DNA as grounds to change admissions policy.  The “something more than genetics” science crew got together with the college's legal aid society to craft a formula for admission that bends the straight ways of reason and curves the well-worn protections of the Republic.  Literally, we now have to look under the hood to matriculate through America's Number 1 HBCU.

I suppose all of this makes sense, especially in a time when people of color blame a Confederate statue for their child's, who wears $300 Nike tennis shoes and possesses a 32-inch television with Nintendo Switch Gaming Console in his or her room, inability to perform well academically.  Damn that General Robert E. Lee statue in the park that I have never taken my children to see or driven pass!  It is that dang statue that keeps our people down!

The politically correct reference this foolishness as "political correctness".  The idea that as the society--radical, militant Leftists--evolves then, we must change all customs, traditions, and principles to keep up with modernity.  No longer are men "men" or women "women" but, they are an ever changing flow of atoms in the particle beans of life.  Surely, as Stevie Wonder can blindly see global warming, mankind must accept that private, all women colleges must adapt, bend a knee, and accept men that graduated from the RuPaul Academy.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we should have seen this coming in 1959 when Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemon, and Tony Curtis got together to do "Some Like It Hot".  Apparently, if I am completely understanding Campbell, Jack and Tony could be admitted to Spelman.  Marilyn could enter stage right as a woman and leave stage left as a man.  That meets the new Spelman matriculation guidelines.  If Marilyn dressed as the Marlboro man, she would not be considered for admission to the Freshman class.  Spelman’s new policy excludes the daughters of singers R. "Golden Showers" Kelly and Sade—Jay Kelly and Ila Adu—both of whom are women that live as men.  I'm quite certain that the alumni contribution team is slightly upset about that decision.  Returning to the example, Marilyn Monroe could enter as Marilyn Monroe and graduate as Marilyn Manson.  The world will be alright and ESPN may extend the Arthur Ashe Award at the convocation.

The real question here is, "As a parent, are you okay with this adoption of the Black Lives Matter / Radical LGBTQ Socio-Political Agenda?"  In the post-"Jim Crow" age, a parent must fully consider the overall value of an education at the institution selected by their high school senior.  If you are investing $45,000 annually, without financial aid considerations, then, is this the environment, since the epigeneticists believe it impacts your DNA, that you want your 100% daughter or slightly confused son to receive their education?  Campbell admits that Spelman, the HBCU leader, is following other colleges around the Nation, "taken stock of the competitive environment for institutions of higher education".  This Administration unpinned itself from its moral foundations to remain competitive in a dying world.  Why?  They fear that you will allow your child to go somewhere else and your dollars will go with them.  Additionally, this isn't the group of Rockefeller Christian Republicans that founded this institution.  Don't look so shocked.  Yes, John Davison Rockefeller Sr., whose wealth was once equal to 2% of the Nation's Gross Domestic Product (GDP), funded the origins of this institution.  In fact, the college was named for Rockefeller's wife, Laura Spelman Rockefeller.

Rockefeller was a Christian.  Hillsdale College's History Chairman, Burton Folsom Jr., said this of Rockefeller, "...he sometimes gave tens of thousands of dollars to Christian groups, while, at the same time, he was trying to borrow over a million dollar to expand his business. His philosophy of giving was founded upon biblical principles. He truly believed in the biblical principle found in Luke 6:38, "Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.".  He was a Radical Republican Abolitionist.  Traveling through the South, he paid for the emancipation of a slave.  He was a conservative.  A stalwart of the Efficiency Movement, Rockefeller emphasized the use of scientific research and economic principles of efficiency, and utility maximization to ensure that government and industry worked to their full potential.  He was a subscriber to the motifs of personal responsibility and individual sovereignty.  He did not want not-for-profit institutions to become dependent on his giving so, he established conditional grants.  He advised that colleges and universities should "root the institution in the affections of as many people as possible who, as contributors, become personally concerned, and thereafter, may be counted on to give to the institution their watchful interest and cooperation".  Yes, the alumni were supposed to stand and deliver after receiving an initial investment.  Yes, kiddies, nobody owes you anything!  He was certainly most notable as a capitalist.  America's first billionaire believed strongly that his purpose in life was to make as much money as humanly possible and then, use it wisely to improve the conditions of mankind.

The Rockefellers' donated money and supported the Atlanta Baptist Female Seminary, whose mission was in line with "their faith based beliefs".  In 1884, the college was renamed Spelman Seminary and later, Spelman College.  However, I question if the Rockefellers, if in the same place today, would even consider visiting the campus.  I doubt that they would be invited to speak or visit.  Would they have opened their purse to an institution that used such resources of staff, research, and capital to come to the conclusions of Campbell and her task force?  I believe that they would not have done so.  Although imperfect, their Faith mattered more than anything else.

In the Urban community, the common level of recruitment involves the phrase, "Don't choose one of those 'other' schools!  Go to an HBCU.  They care about you."   If the College's Administration is willing to sell out on its foundational mission then, will your child receive the utmost care?  The Radical LGBTQ lobby, for the sake of rewriting the Republic's values, presses people to accept the phrase "gender identity disorder (GID)".  Anxiety, fear, and discomfort are not overcome by hormone shots and a new suit from the Men's Warehouse.  If that were then, those that have fully converted genders would not suffer as reported.   For those that have had a sex change, fifty-one percent (51%) attempt suicide, have deep regret, or will not adjust.

"Studies in America and Holland report one in 20 post-operative transsexuals changes his or her mind after surgery, and one in ten never adjusts and often becomes deeply depressed. The Transgender Task Force reports 41% attempt suicide."

Nor should a college or university submit to the secular pursuit of society orchestrated by Black Lives Matter.  In the creation of Black Villages, BLM states, "We are committed to disrupting the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, and especially “our” children to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable."  In addition, BLM refers to Transgender Affirmation as,"We are committed to embracing and making space for trans brothers and sisters to participate and lead.  We are committed to being self-reflexive and doing the work required to dismantle cis-gender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence."  The centering by a college to make women antagonistic towards men does not solve problems but creates them.

The real losers are the generations that follow as they have to deal with the Miseducation of the Negro.  In the end, as parents and high school seniors consider college and university choices, they must ask themselves, "What Price Am I Willing to Pay to Sacrifice My Faith and Values?"  If it is attending a school where political correctness is more important than the pursuit of truth then, there is an All Women's College in Atlanta, GA that awaits your son's or daughter's application.
