Bizarro World

If you do not want your children to have your bodies mutilated, as Joe Biden asserted in an interview, that is just pure evil. If you do not want to murder unborn babies by dismemberment you deserve to be investigated by the FBI, have your church vandalized, or have your pro-life advocacy center firebombed . . . but you do want to murder babies in the womb right up to and after birth, well, that ain’t radical, that is just perfectly fine on the leftist planet of Htrae, known as Bizarro World.

We are not bound by ideology…

We live in a constitutional republic, not a constitutional monarchy. We abide by the Law, which exists to protect our rights, freedoms, and liberties. We are not bound to obey, or be ruled by, edicts, orders, mandates, decrees, and rules which reflect more ideology than constitutionality. Laws are not made by courts, regardless of what the progressive socialist left states, and courts do not grant us rights, especially rights to take the life of another, born or unborn. Legislatures, not judges or executives, make laws. As our elected representatives, laws are supposed to reflect their fundamental duty to protect our life, liberty, and property, not cherry-pick who they will defend.

We must restore the intent of “the law”…

If we are to Live Free in America, which is our mission at the American Constitutional Rights Union, that means we must restore the original intent and purpose of The Law, and we must comprehend what the Law is. The sad reality in America is that many are blind to what is happening and have joined the campaign of progressive socialism to make individual rights subservient to the collective.

A line in the sand…

A line in the sand has been drawn. Our domestic enemy has intentionally identified themselves. It is sad that we are at this point, but the progressive socialist leftists have indeed declared war on America, its foundations, fundamentals, principles and values. These leftists have proven to us that they are more than willing to use violence as a means to their ends. We have to be smarter, but we must also be resolute and vigilant, never cowering.

Home-Grown Genocide

Maybe the NAACP should issue a statement on the destruction of the traditional nuclear two-parent family in the Black community. That is probably not a realistic expectation since Black Lives Matter does not support the traditional nuclear family. Supposedly that is also a symbol of white supremacy. Or maybe the NAACP should issue a travel advisory for Blacks to states where murdering unborn black babies by dismemberment has become the number one killer of Blacks . . . over 20 million since 1973 and the Roe v. Wade court decision. That’s genocide.

The threat of domestic tyranny…

America was founded by men who understood that the threat of domestic tyranny is as great as any threat from abroad. If we want to be worthy of their legacy, we must resist the rush toward ever-increasing state control of our society. Otherwise, our own government will become a greater threat to our freedoms than any foreign terrorist.

The soft bigotry of low expectations

The American Politburo…

What is happening in America is not just about a two-tiered system of justice. What we have happening is the emergence of an American Politburo. The term Politburo was introduced to us by the old Soviet Union in 1917. It was the principal policymaking committee of the Communist Party. Today in America, we have a policymaking committee that is making decisions and seeking to rule based upon an elitist ideological agenda, to enact a fundamental transformation of the United States of America.a

The unconstitutional open border policy

The US Constitution, our rule of law, clearly states in Article IV, Section 4 “the guarantee clause,” that the federal government has the enumerated responsibility to protect every state in the Union from invasion. There can be no debate that our Constitutional Republic is facing a massive invasion of illegal immigrants, and it has had a detrimental consequences for drug, human, and sex trafficking. As we have articulated here previously, the Biden administration is in violation of the US Constitution with their open border leftist policy agenda . . . a high crime and misdemeanor, a treasonous offense, subverting the sovereignty of these United States.

Strategy Against the Leftist Agenda

There are two books every Republican and conservative should read before the end of this year: Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War.” Republicans are being consistently outmaneuvered from a strategic political perspective, and that must end. It can only end if you understand the leftists and what drives them. Then, develop the political killer instinct to defeat them, deny them their objectives, and go on offense against their delusions and derangement.

The real war on women…

It can no longer be debated, the real war on women is being waged by the progressive socialist left. The recent vote in the US House of Representatives that saw all 203 Democrats vote against protecting women’s sports is evidence. Joe Biden’s pledge to veto any bill that protects women’s sports is further proof. And now we have the decision by the Arizona Attorney General to sacrifice young women seeking to excel in sports upon the altar of gender dysphoria is highly disconcerting. The left desires to erase women from our society. Biological males wishing to compete against females is not heroic, it is cowardice personified. And those supporting this absurdity are utterly deranged and in violation of the constitutional rights of Women in America.

While many insist that election fraud is non-existent, ACRU and ACRU Action have been tracking and fighting election fraud for many years. ACRU has sued counties that refuse to clean up their voter rolls and ACRU sued Broward County, Florida in 2016 after they refused to remove any deceased or relocated citizens for two solid years. ACRU is known for its Election Integrity Bulletin that is sent regularly to legislators, legislative staff, and election officials.

Dependence on government...

Dependence on government…

There are those in America today who have come to depend absolutely on government for their security. And when government fails they seek to rectify that failure in the form of granting government more power. So, as government has failed to control crime and violence with the means given it by the Constitution, they seek to give it more power at the expense of the Constitution. But in doing so, in their willingness to give up their arms in the name of safety, they are really giving up their protection from what has always been the chief source of despotism — government.

Fortis Fortuna Adiuvat

And why should they not be emboldened since the supposed political opposition party cowers before them and subscribes to some disturbing Marquis of Queensberry rules of engagement? You never hear about bipartisanship, compromise, or working across the aisle when leftists are in control. In the majority they are tyrannical, and in the minority they are tenacious.

What is the law?

Each of us, even though we have the right to, cannot operate in a civil society seeking our own means of defense of these unalienable rights. Therefore, individuals grant this individual right to a collective organization, meaning consent of the governed, to defend and protect those rights. That is the purpose of the law. That is what the government is established to do. That is the premise of our Declaration of Independence. Government does not exist to usurp individual unalienable rights; it exists to protect them. That is why our Constitution, our rule of law, establishes this in its first ten amendments, our individual Bill of Rights.

Progressive socialism, statism, collectivism, Marxism, and communism is the antithesis of our Constitutional Republic. It is indeed the enemy of our foundational principles and values.

This new American Politburo is not based on political party, but rather on ideology and philosophy of governance. One that believes the government is empowered to rule.

Treason from inside…

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

If it is not a concern for you that we are witnessing policies that bring about the destruction of our Country and disregard for our rule of law, then you should evaluate whether you fit into Cicero’s description of a traitor.

The Corporate Equity Index

Right now, behind the scenes, the leftists, by way of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), funded by George Soros, have developed something called the Corporate Equity Index (CEI). There are some five to six evaluative criteria the HRC uses to “grade” corporations which mainly center around the radical LGBTQIA+ alphabet soup mafia agenda. The goal is for companies to earn a total of 100 points, or else. The “or else” is the same old progressive socialist Marxist playbook — threats, coercion, intimidation, and creation of fear.

Open borders are incompatible with constitutional rights

The question of open borders and the 14th Amendment is the lack of clarification to those illegally within the jurisdiction. That distinction is not explicitly affirmed. Regardless, how can we offer constitutional rights and protections to those whose first act to enter the United States was unlawful? America is a sovereign nation, a Constitutional Republic with borders that are to be regarded, and laws that are to be respected. Anyone failing to do so should not be afforded equal protection under our laws! If that ends up being the case, then America is relegated to just being a piece of terrain by which anyone can illegally occupy . . . the leftist, and global elitist belief is rooted in the concept of no borders, no wall, no USA at all.

False liberals have no regard for individual rights…

The reason the progressive socialist left has embarked upon this crusade of lawlessness is that they have no regard for individual rights, unless they align with their ideological rights. Leftists do not study or read the philosophies of Locke, Bastiat, DeTocqueville, or anyone who advocates for individual rights. The leftists in America are grounded in the rantings of Karl Marx, Antonio Gramsci, Saul Alinsky, and other proponents of collectivism. This is why we should not refer to these progressive socialists as liberals. True liberals — classical liberals — are today’s constitutional conservatives who believe in and understand that the individual is supreme over the institution of government, not vice versa.

The real threat to democracy

Constitutional conservatives must learn to delineate the goals and objectives of the progressive socialist left. We must be able to clearly show who the real “threat to democracy” is, and those who seek to undermine our Constitutional Republic. Too often we find ourselves reticent, and recalcitrant, to firmly clarify what it is these leftists embrace, and put them on defense. It is time we stop reacting and go on offense. It is time we reclaim language, terms, or references, and force them to defend who they are and what they believe.

I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty but leading or driving them out of it.

And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.

Censorship under the guise of ‘misinformation’

Consider the whole COVID situation when anyone challenging a prescribed narrative was shut down and censored. The people lost their right to free speech and expression, and that was enabled by government collusion with media platforms to suppress dissension. In every case, it was about facts being discarded as “disinformation” or “misinformation.” We almost saw an Orwellian government directorate established in the Department of Homeland Security to “police” said violations. We the People were stripped of our most basic freedoms, just to go outside, and were driven into submission over a virus that severely affected those with certain comorbidities. But, to speak in such a way, one was assailed. We even saw medical professionals have their credentials threatened or licenses revoked, all because they did, indeed, follow the science.

Printing money…

We cannot continue to attempt to print money to resolve the issue of abysmal fiscal policy. Our economy is artificial, due to Federal Reserve “quantitative easing” manipulation,” especially the manipulation of interest rates to cover for the failing economic policy, and dangerous levels of federal government spending. Our debt is cresting $32 trillion. Our last quarter GDP read was 1.1 percent resulting in a debt to GDP ratio of nearly 130 percent. We are way past redlining our economy, and the resulting failure of three regional banks, Silicon Valley, Signature, and New Republic are indicative of such.

No, our streets are not safe, as the progressive socialist leftists by way of their well-placed Soros-backed district attorneys are releasing violent criminals. No, we do not have educational freedom and parental choice when the leftist teachers’ unions concentrate more power. Parents are being told they will lose their children if they do not consent to gender mutilation — heck, we are now struggling to understand what a woman is.

Debt

Our nation, these United States of America, is close to $32 trillion in debt. Our debt to GDP ratio is creeping close to 130 percent, meaning that our debt is outpacing our economic production, gross domestic product. The net interest on the debt is hitting $1 trillion, far more than what we appropriate to our national security and defense. Every American taxpayer would have to write a check for over $200,000 to eradicate the debt. Every American citizen is on the hook for $90, 000.

Real parenthood

Real parenthood

Parenthood is more than the ability to bring children into this world. Indeed, it is the ability of an adult to take joy in the responsibilities that come with educating, rearing, and taking care of one’s children.

The Real Plantation Overseer: The NAACP

What the NAACP is evidencing is that they care little about the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness (property) for “colored people.” They were founded as, and continue to be, a leftist ideological and agenda-driven organization aligned with a political party that has consistently embraced the ideas of physical enslavement and economic enslavement when it comes to Blacks in America. The NAACP does not advance the idea of Blacks being able to “Live Free.” As Joe Biden quipped, “they gonna put y’all back in chains.” The ones who did that are the political party for whom the NAACP has become the new overseers on the 21st-century economic plantation.

So… Parents are incapable of raising children?

Illegal immigration skews congressional representation…

One of the drawbacks of apportionment today is the large number of aliens in the country, particularly illegal aliens, who distort the representation that states have in the House because the Census Bureau includes them in the population count used to determine how many representatives each state should have. The growing alien population is unfairly and unjustly altering the political representation of the states in the House of Representatives, cheating citizens and devaluing their votes in favor of aliens who have no right to participate in governing this country.

We keep hearing about “threats to Democracy” and that the Mega MAGA Republicans embody that threat. Well, MAGA Republicans are not the ones advocating for illegal immigrants to vote, nor voicing support for open borders. MAGA Republicans are not the ones advocating for stacking the Supreme Court in order to push a leftist ideological agenda. MAGA Republicans are not undermining the Electoral College, as the left is doing, by putting together a coalition called the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.

Treasonous actions…

It cannot be debated — this current administration is enacting treasonous actions to undermine the sovereignty of our Constitutional Republic, and is in violation of our Constitution. The fact that members of this administration would lie under oath, such as Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorgas, telling us the border is secure is unconscionable. And to have the official mouthpiece of the administration, Karine Jean-Pierre, asserting that there has been a 90% decrease in illegal immigration is pure lying, deception. And even her correction stating that Joe Biden is offering, by way of an App, pardons to individuals to illegally enter America is unconstitutional, as he does not have that enumerated power.

Who is crossing our border?

The amount of single military-age males being allowed illegal entry into America should give us all concern. As well, the same goes for the level of single military-age females. I saw videos of Mexican officials taking illegals to positions and crossing points where there were no individuals to deter their entry. See, you can put up concertina wire, but if no one is there conducting overwatch, it loses its value and capability. Over these past two years We the People have been fed lies, deception, gimmicks, optics, and platitudes when it comes to our southern border security. Now, it has reached its full zenith, and there are still two more years of Biden regime rule…even more years of a feckless Texas governor. Neither of whom are fulfilling their constitutional duties and responsibilities.

Private business “rights”…

Do private businesses have the right to conduct their operations as they see fit? In most cases the answer is yes. Unless they are in breach of contracts or unless that private business is really acting as the pseudo arm of the government to trample on the rights of Americans.

The rise of corporatism, or economic totalitarianism, should cause conservatives to rethink their knee-jerk defense of corporations. Whether we lose our liberties because of government actions or corporate actions they may still disappear forever. It is time to fight back.

The requirement by states for law-abiding citizens to obtain a carry permit is unconstitutional by nature. What part of “the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” do legislators not understand?

The Real NAACP

The NAACP stands for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. But how many of you knew that the NAACP was founded by white progressives (code name for communists) Mary White Ovington, Oswald Garrison Villard, William English Walding, and Dr. Henry Moskowitz? Sure, we are taught that WEB DuBois was a founder, but he was made the face of the organization. DuBois was part of the Black intelligentsia elite, a socialist himself, who in later years would dine with Mao Tse Tung, renounce his American citizenship and fully declare his communist beliefs. The NAACP was actually established as a counter to the work and principles of my philosophical mentor, Booker T. Washington. Washington’s work in establishing Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute was grounded in the principles of education, entrepreneurship, and self-reliance. Washington was instrumental in the formation of the Negro Business League, which spawned the economic success of the Black community, even in the face of Democrat Jim Crow and segregation policies.

Parents who attended school board meetings over their concerns about the indoctrination of their children were designated as domestic terrorists.

Border security and the fall of Rome…

Rome did not protect its northern border and eventually the Visigoths, a Germanic tribe, led by Alaric sacked Rome in 410 AD. In just two and a half years we have seen between 6-7 million illegally enter America across the southern border. Reports are that another 700K-1 million lie in wait to rush our border. No one is enacting the policies to stop this invasion: not Joe Biden, nor Texas Governor Greg Abbott. With all that we are facing in America at this point, being overrun at our southern border which is operationally controlled by a transnational narco-criminal terrorist organization does not bode well.

A call for real budgeting

The federal government should be on a zero-based budget system, which is what households and businesses utilize, which means each budget cycle, every spending line item, program has to be justified to be maintained and funded.

As well, we have to rein in the federal government’s ability to print money, manipulate interest rates, spend money they do not have (deficit spending) and borrow money to hide its fiscal failures. The ones who end up carrying this burden are American taxpayers.

Diluting the hard-earned right to vote…

Expanding the right to vote to foreigners not only diminishes the work of black Americans to have their vote counted, but it also gives the right to vote to people who have no stake in the future of our country.

On the importance of a free press…

The First Amendment is the beginning of our individual Bill of Rights. But, there is one right listed there that some would perhaps believe has nothing to do with individual rights: the freedom of the press. However, when you ponder upon the words, “or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition their government for redress of grievance,” one can surmise why the freedom of the press is vital to our individual rights. A free press is one that objectively keeps the people informed, educated, and able to discern infringement upon their constitutional rights. A free press sets the conditions for us to be citizens in a Constitutional Republic, not subjects in a tyrannical monarchy or system of rule. If we lose that objective press, one that is no longer free to speak to the truth, then We the People can be driven like mindless lemmings.

No good commander abandons troops in need…

The purposeful and intentional disregard of our borders by federal and state elected officials is highly disturbing, treasonous, and fully representative of high crimes and misdemeanors. To ignore and abandon legal, law-abiding citizens at a time when their homes, ranches, property, and communities are being overrun by those who do have a right to enter our country is appalling. No good commander or leader would abandon their troops in dire need.
