Priming The Public for the 2020 Election

In my Opinion…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Its scary folks! Why I tell you, if things get any scarier I don’t know what I will do. Over the last few days my email has been rife with dire warnings of impending doom and chaos, the likes of which we have never seen before. And the 2020 elections are still more than a year away. Pay attention here, because these are all serious, serious threats to our so-called “democracy, our religious piety, and of course our very way of life”. Thats just for starters. Anyway, here’s what I have been warned about over the last several days.

 

  1. According to Hillary Clinton, Tulsi Gabbard is being groomed by the Russians. I suppose Clinton would know, after all they groomed her to the tune of about 3 million in her Uranium 1 deal. And god only knows how much went into her foundation that no one even knows about.
  2. Trump has claimed that if they do impeach him, he will become even more powerful than he is now. He went on to say that he will become so powerful they won’t believe it. We don’t know who the “they” is he is referring to…but nonetheless ..they won’t believe it. This statement was reportedly followed with a major temper tantrum that included holding his breath for more than two minutes while stomping his feet furiously.
  3. Both major party’s have solicited funds from me. As I understand it, they can only beat their adversaries (which I am to view as my enemy) if I give them money. They cannot possibly win unless I personally send them as much as I can.
  4. After falling badly behind schedule in driving the entire country into unrepayable debt, the Senate is ready to begin passing their spending bills. Of course, they have no intentions of spending their own money. No. They are making plans on how to spend YOUR money, and your children’s and grandchildren’s.
  5. My email is loaded with dire warnings that the “commies” are coming….or is it the socialists? I can’t keep them straight. One such email had blazing headlines about how the Communist Party was supporting the Democrats. OMG!! Who even knew we had a communist party?? I am so scared now I think I peed a little!
  6. OH! And lest I forget! The end is near! All the signs are there! And you know that if you don’t give your church of choice as much of your money as you can they cannot possibly fight back the devil who is after you personally. But they can’t beat him unless you give til it hurts.
  7. Oh no! I just got an email reminding me that communism/socialism has failed in every country that has tried to implement it. That’s true. But have you ever noticed they never mention Italy and the hanging of Mussolini for implementing fascism ..,.. the corporate privatizing of everything, including the government, which devastated the Italian economy and its people? Fascism doesn’t work either, except for those at the top. Everyone else pays the bills. Sound familiar?
  8. But just when things seemed to be on a downward spiral I got an email that informed me that beautiful Ukraine women were wanting to meet me!! And another promising to give me the secret to making women scream with pleasure all night long! Oh wait a minute….I have to send them money before I meet any of these women or learn these secrets!

Damn…..I already spent all my money fighting the Democrats, the Republicans, the socialists, the communists, the fascists and the devil!

So you think you are a “liberal” or “conservative”?

In My Opinion….

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have watched the rolling battle between those on the so-called left, and those on the so-called right. I have also observed the efforts by those on either side of this fictional divide that is observed only out here in the public for what appears to be the amusement of those elected officials who see us as nothing more than a nuisance. But one thing is glaringly apparent to me; those in government are doing everything they can to incite a civil revolt. Our military is being stationed all around the country, along with tanks and other military war weapons. Who do you think those are intended for use on? Think about it!

The question many people are asking is: “Do you think our military would actually turn on us?”

Well….the majority of our law enforcement agencies who have been militarized sure have in many instances. What do you think?

Do you really believe there is any intent to impeach Trump? I don’t. Now then, it is possible that having pushed this bogus issue this far, they may be forced to actually proceed. But believe me there is no intention to take this emotionally immature, unstable and tactless man out of office. He is serving the purposes of too many people who have carefully cultivated his support having managed to not incur one of his temper tantrums. We have a president who spends his time tweeting while the country falls apart.

This is a dog and pony show put on to make sure this right v left thing continues. It is imperative that you view each other as an enemy to be defeated. If you don’t….well then, things might actually change. You might actually start paying attention to the fact that all the major banks are failing thanks to deregulation that allowed them to openly operate as criminal enterprises. The Fed is loaning them millions per day to keep them afloat. They are too big to fail, but you, the public, can lose your jobs, your homes, and anything else you might have but you dare not ask for help! Thats socialism! Thats communism! But fascism is destroying our country as you whine hysterically about these phantom ideologies that have been used for decades to con the public into accepting the unacceptable.

I believe everything will be done before the 2020 election to either prevent the election from taking place, or to stop it in its tracks midway. If the public doesn’t revolt on its own, I have no doubt something or someone will be used to incite riots as the catalyst to be used as the excuse to stop the election. The Antifa crowd (actually Anti Fascism in its origins) will kick things into high gear to make sure that civil unrest and possible revolt take place. Everyone has their part to play and the Antifa crowd as it exists today is rife with violent and low IQ individuals who seem not to be aware that they are simply fools to be used. The politicians in DC must be enjoying the hell out of this.

The hysteria across social platforms screeching about the socialists or the “commies” supposedly having taken over, or who are waiting in the wings to destroy us, are the fantasies of those who know nothing about what is actually taking place; just how far from freedom and security we really are. All of this coming from people who apparently have not got a clue that we are a fully fascist country. Socialism and communism stand not a chance in the face of powerful corporations who control everything, including every aspect of our lives.

Screw your MAGA hats and ideologies….lets make America FREE again! Greatness will follow all on its own.

Get Your Head Out Of Your False Left vs. Right Paradigm

OPINION:

I cannot believe, after successive presidency’s reflecting both supposed political ideologies and party’s, that anyone is still buying into the right vs. left, Republican vs. Democrat, liberal vs. conservative, BS. And it is BS.

Playing on, at times, extreme religious beliefs, or manufactured propaganda meant to frighten you in to accepting another war of aggression, or professed moral righteousness, we are encouraged to vote for one party or the other. Along with the tossing about of the words socialism and communism and the chronic hysteria that accompanies those words, many of us are convinced that our votes really matter or that things will actually change as a result. Actually, they do change…they always get worse. Makes no difference which wing of the this one party system you vote for.

Combining church and state?

We have a 1st amendment prohibiting that and for good reason.

Let me say that the lunacy emanating from churches in today’s world is enough to make a rational, reasonable man’s head explode. When I see blanket statements such as “Democrats hate Conservatives and Christians”…Really?? Really America? How many of you actually believe that? Or how about, “conservatives hate Democrats and they are satanists?” Are you really that easily manipulated and stupid? But if you need one, the barrage of idiotic religious drivel from either side of this combination of church and state, or, the lack thereof, is really obnoxious.

That’s Socialism! That’s Socialism!

First, let’s clear one thing up right off the bat! America is in no danger of becoming a socialist or communist nation. We are heading full steam ahead More

Why They Push to “Privatize” Everything…Especially on the Federal Level

Marti Oakley   PPJ Gazette copyright © 2019

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ever wonder why the government, that spends billions if not trillions each year on wasteful agencies and programs, then allows those agencies to become so dysfunctional, so costly they become a detriment to the public? This is an intentional plan in action with a very much desired end result. Privatization. This means, that some special, well connected “stakeholder” who will make massive amounts of money bilking the public is ready and set to go. The word stakeholder is a word used to describe those who have a vested monetary interest in profiting by any means necessary and they have bribed, bought, groomed, and pampered any elected official willing to sell you out. And bear in mind that no private interest would be remotely interested in taking over any of these services or agencies if the potential for unlimited and unregulated profits was not part of the deal.

The reason that the federal government and its agencies contract out work to private corporations; work they should be quite able to perform in and of themselves (considering this is the reason they were put in office in the first place) and the vast amount of money squandered each year, is to limit the information the public can gain access to under FOIA or other inquiries. What that private corporation will hide behind is “proprietary rights” and “trade secrets”. Unconstitutionally ceding their business, power and authority to a private corporation provides protection from prying eyes and mountains of unconstitutional and unlawful activity can be safely kept out of the public eye through privatization.

So called “deregulation” , sold to the public as necessary if the economy is to survive, is simply a means by which corporations are allowed to operate without those precious regulations, codes, laws, or other bothersome rules the rest of us are bound by. Supposedly, regulations make business too difficult for them to operate. And you saw the benefits of deregulation in 2008 when Wall Street oversaw the disappearance of millions and billions of dollars of other people’s money…money which was never recovered. The corporate world claimed that those regulations were an interference with “free trade”, and “capitalism”.

60% of all corporations PAY NO TAXES. But somehow they do receive multi-million dollar tax refunds each and every year. How does “free trade and capitalism” sound to you now? Free breaks for them and the capital flows into their accounts. All the while you, the over regulated and taxed individual fights to keep enough of your income to survive on. [2]

BARACK OBAMA: AMERICA’S FIRST ANTI-AMERICAN PRESIDENT

__________________________________________________

When former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said, “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that that President Obama loves America. He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.” It took a lot of guts for Rudy to say it, because almost immediately he was attacked by Democrats, the national liberal media and even a few “deflated” Republicans. The attack on Giuliani was almost instantaneous. Anyone who even hinted that they might support Giuliani or had doubts about Mr. Obama’s love for America had to be attacked as mean spirited, cruel, unpatriotic and if those words didn’t work, they had to be called racists.

It was not that Rudy Giuliani wasn’t telling the truth because he was. It was because it was politically incorrect to say such a thing about a sitting president, even though Barack Obama pretty much said the same thing about President George W. Bush while Bush was still the president and Obama was a U.S. Senator. Although I agree with Mr. Giuliani that Barack Obama does not love America, I will go a step further and say it is more serious than our current president not loving this country.

If you remember, before and right after Barack Obama was elected President, he said that he was going to fundamentally transform or change America. If he did really love America, why is he trying so hard to fundamentally change it into a socialist country where the federal government has absolute power over the people? The answer is simple. He wants to change it, not because he loves America, but because he doesn’t even like it. As you shall see in the information outlined later in this article, Barack Obama, from a young age, was indoctrinated by American-hating communists and Marxists into believing that America is an evil capitalist country that must be brought to its knees and punished for being an Anglo-Imperialist country that became rich on the backs of the people of third world countries.

Obama’s Doctrine of Destruction of America as we know it, and the March to a New World Order

This is a good synopsis of where we are heading and how we are getting there.

A NATION BEGUILED

http://www.pakalertpress.com/

TRUTHER

We could not have a better person in office than President Obama, if you want someone to do everything he can to destroy the country that is. This President has gone out of his way to make sure not only just a few of his Socialist policies ruin us, but that his whole time in office is dedicated to the destruction of the United States as we know it.

From supplying terrorist organizations such as Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and countless other Islamic Jihadists in N. Africa, the Mid-East, Indonesia, and Europe with billions of dollars in weapons, billions in financial aid, and actual military help, to purposely busing and flying in hundreds of thousand illegal aliens per day via Homeland Security.

This President expects his agenda of anti-Americanism to continue with breaking our economy and with the EPA’s anti CO2 regulations, which are based on…

AN OPEN LETTER TO ALL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS IN NEW YORK STATE FROM THE OATH KEEPERS

_____________________________________________________________________

“Recently in Connecticut, the state notified gun owners who have not complied with their unconstitutional gun registration laws that they must surrender their semi-automatic rifles or risk being arrested for a felony. How does turning 300,000 plus law-abiding citizens into criminals overnight, happen in America?”

______________________________________________________________

As you know, the New York Safe Act was passed in the middle of the night by the New York City dominated New York State Legislature and signed by a Governor who would be president, without any input from the people. Who will be safer under this unconstitutional law? It definitely will not be the law-abiding citizens of New York who, if we comply, would have some of our ability to defend ourselves taken1978754_644420168926779_1732856343_n away. The law might be better named the NY SAFE ACT FOR CRIMINALS because violent criminals who carry illegal guns will never comply. They have never complied with any gun control laws and they will continue to use all banned weapons with the largest capacity magazines they can get their hands on. Only the law-abiding citizens like us and police officers like you, will now be at a disadvantage, not the criminals.

The origin of gun control in New York State goes back to 1911 when a Democrat State Senator from New York City named “Big Tim Sullivan” pushed for gun control in New York City. He was a Tammany Hall crook and a criminal overseer of gangs in New York City. Sullivan sponsored the gun-control law (later called the Sullivan Act) that mandated police-issued licenses for handguns and made it a felony to carry an unlicensed concealed weapon in NYC. When it passed, ordinary law-abiding citizens were disarmed, which solved another problem for the NYC criminals. It seems that gangsters had been bitterly complaining to State Senator Sullivan and NYC politicians that the victims of their criminal attacks sometimes shot back at them. In other words, the good guys were shooting the bad guys and State Senator Sullivan and other political crooks could not let that happen.

We know that Governor Cuomo and the Democrat controlled legislature arbitrarily came up with their own definitions of what so called ‘Assault Weapons’ are. The definitions were concocted out of thin air by a group of New York City socialists who obviously know nothing about guns. One of the things they identified that makes certain rifles ‘assault weapons’ was if a rifle had a lug on it for a bayonet. Never mind the fact that no person in New York State has been murdered or even assaulted by a person using a rifle with a bayonet attached to it in well over a hundred years. It doesn’t matter to these socialists because they will say and do anything to take our guns. That is and always has been their ultimate goal.

Certain rifles legally purchased in the past by American citizens, who happen to reside in New York State, are now illegal to purchase or sell to another state resident. Why has the New York State legislature concentrated their efforts on turning hundreds of thousands of your fellow New Yorkers into criminals?

The New York State Sheriffs Association and the County Clerks Association have taken positions opposing the NY SAFE Act as unconstitutional, as have 52 county legislatures and over 150 towns and villages in the State. In addition, there are at least 4 lawsuits currently working their way through the court system. All of these lawsuits have identified specific sections of the NY SAFE Act that are violations of both the New York State Constitution and the U.S. Constitution. All of these organizations have called for either amending the bill or called for the outright repeal of the law in order to start over with some input from the people. More

OBAMA REAFFIRMS INTENT TO TRANSFORM US INTO MARXIST SOCIETY

My Grand Children’s America Blog 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On Monday, November 30, 2013, Obama gave a talk about what he called the growing inequality and lack of opportunity in America.   He said this would be his focus the rest or his term.  This is how he phrased it.

“…. and that is a dangerous and growing inequality and lack of upward mobility that has jeopardized middle-class America’s basic bargain — that if you work hard, you have a chance to get ahead.  I believe this is the defining challenge of our time:  Making sure our economy works for every working American.  It’s why I ran for President.  It was at the center of last year’s campaign.  It drives everything I do in this office.  And I know I’ve raised this issue before, and some will ask why I raise the issue again right now.  I do it because the outcomes of the debates we’re having right now — whether it’s health care, or the budget, or reforming our housing and financial systems — all these things will have real, practical implications for every American.  And I am convinced that the decisions we make on these issues over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where opportunity is real.” More

Message to the voting cattle………Anarchy

This is from Grant’s speech within the novel “The Iron Web” by Larken Rose

Anarchy –Grant’s Speech recited by John Rand

Published on Aug 16, 2012

There is some ambiguity with the use of the terms “libertarianism” and “libertarian” in writings about anarchism. Since the 1890s from France, the term “libertarianism” has often been used as a synonym for anarchism and was used almost exclusively in this sense until the 1950s in the United States; its use as a synonym is still common outside the United States.  Accordingly, “libertarian socialism” is sometimes used as a synonym for socialist anarchism, to distinguish it from “individualist libertarianism” (individualist anarchism). On the other hand, some use “libertarianism” to refer to individualistic free-market philosophy only, referring to free-market anarchism as “libertarian anarchism”.

Anarchy (from the ancient Greek αναρχια, from αν, “not” +‎ αρχος  “ruler”, “absence of a leader”, without rulers), has more than one definition. In the United States, the term “anarchy” typically is used to refer to a society without a publicly enforced government or violently enforced political authority. When used in this sense, anarchy may or may not be intended to imply political disorder or lawlessness within a society. However, this usage is not the traditional sense of the word.
Outside of the US, and by most individuals that self-identify as anarchists, it implies a system of governance, mostly theoretical at a nation state level although there are a few successful historical examples, that goes to lengths to avoid the use of coercion, violence, force and authority, while still producing a productive and desirable society.

Vote all you want: The flight plan doesn’t change

________________________________________________________________

Vote all you want, the flight plan does not change no matter who wins.  We got us a big election coming up and of course the country is dividing itself right down the middle at least in some areas. For most of us out here this coming election means nothing.  The usual arguments over whether we are flying headlong into socialism or, if we are in fact in the throws of fascism seem to have lost their appeal.  Most have realized that whether socialism or fascism the end result is the same; a ruling class and the rest of us servants.  It just depends on which sales pitch appeals to you. For most of us, we have had it with the snake oil politicians and their ever changing sales pitch’s.

Fascism, the overtaking of government by corporations, is hidden behind euphoric,  glorious terms;  Free markets, free trade, globalism and the world economy.  Most who subscribe to this pitch appear to be fearful of being cut out of the action, maybe not getting a piece of the global pie or at least a piece as big as they thought they should get.  Socialism, the plan for the common people, will see many fall never to rise again.

In 2010, even many hard-core Republicans were relieved to see the end of the Bush/Cheney neo-cons and the unending assaults on freedom and our rights.  Eight years of what was, in my opinion, the most treacherous, murderous, pathologically evil cabal that had seized control of our country, was finally over.  What we were to find out was that it would only be continued under the new president, and taken so much further.

The election of Obama gave the country its first sense of hope after eight years of massive walls of lies, deceit, manipulation and some of the most corrupt individuals to ever find their way into our government.  We replaced the neo-cons with Obama/Biden.  We should have listened more closely to that victory speech, but we didn’t.  We were too relieved, too hopeful and far too enthralled with this new president and the promises made; promises we thought meant a return to liberty, to integrity and honor.  We should have listened more closely and not allowed our emotions to cloud our critical thinking.

Fundamentally changing

Obama asked in his acceptance speech if we were ready to join him in fundamentally changing our country.  What did we think he meant?  Did any one of us think to ask….fundamentally change it how? More

WILL THIS BE AMERICA’S FUTURE TOO?

SOCIALIST TYPE GOVERNMENTS HAVE RESULTED IN A LOSS OF FREEDOM AND VERY HIGH TAX RATES IN THE EUROPEAN UNION: WILL THIS BE AMERICA'S FUTURE TOO?

Have you ever wondered what the real cost of those proposed socialist programs are going to be – once most of the programs of the Democrat-Socialists are fully implemented in the United States, against the will of the American people of course. Have you ever wondered what your quality of life will be once these costs finally hit your wallet. If you have wondered about it, you may be very interested in looking at the current tax rate figures for the European Union.

As you look these mind-boggling, very high tax rates, keep in mind that in spite of these astronomical figures, these European countries are still not able to finance their social engineering and social welfare programs exclusively from tax revenues. Just about all of the European countries are also deeply mired in public debt of gargantuan proportions. Greece has reached the point where its debt is so huge it is in imminent danger of defaulting. That is the reason the European economic community has intervened to bail them out yet again.

If you’re following the international financial news, you know Spain and Portugal are right behind Greece.

Thanks to our current administration and the many Democrat-Socialist and Liberal-Republican administrations and politicians who came before, the United States is now heading right down the same path. Surely, both political parties can share the blame.

The VAT tax named in the table is the national sales tax that Europeans pay and that kind of a tax is exactly what you can expect to see the Obama administration proposing after the fall elections, if they win. This will be on top of the U.S. federal income tax

The initial percentage in the United States will not be anywhere near the outrageous numbers you now see in Europe, but then again neither were the federal income tax rates very high back in 1913, when that tax started. The current outrageous numbers in Europe didn’t start out as outrageous either. They started out as minuscule – right around the 1% or 2% where they will start out in the United States. Magically, however, they were increased over the years to where they are now. If history is a guide, the American taxpayers can expect the same thing here.

It is the very notion that with hard work and perseverance, anybody can get ahead economically here in the USA . Do you think that can ever happen with tax rates between 60% and 80%? Think again. With the government taking such a large percentage of your money, your life will be exactly like life in Europe … More

 WE WILL BE THERE.

I am offering my services as a speaker for the Constitution Party and to spread the word of what is happening to our freedoms.  These are the matters that I am running for; to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States, and the Wisconsin state constitution, from all enemies …Foreign AND Domestic!

I am sending out letters of support to every one I know in the state.  We have to let people know what our socialist government is doing and HAS been doing for a long time. 

This isn’t the work of just one of the parties but of both of them.  It’s all about power and greed. Our so called representatives get that by helping the friends in the BIG-FARM industry.  We know where the campaign funds come from.

To quote :

 “Raw milk is not inherently dangerous, as DATCP, the FDA and Big Ag would like you to believe.  But, as with all foods, it’s how it’s produced that matters. We little guys pasture our animals, feed and treat them organically, and many of us use no grains.  The Big Guys can’t do that.  They confine their animals, pump them full of hormones and antibiotics, and feed them garbage – literally, like bakery waste and distillers grains (the stuff left over after producing alcohol or ethanol).  That milk IS dangerous.  Our isn’t.  But as you can guess, it’s about control and monopolization.”

I consider this to be the real problem in our health care today; processed foods devoid of nutrition and filled with toxins resulting from industrialized corporate farming. 

I am also mobilizing support for Pat and Melissa Monchilovich of Cumberland, WI.  This too is wrong and is in direct violation of the state of Wisconsin Constitution, guaranteeing allodial property rights i.e., [absolute ownership.  Not bound to render service to any other body or person.] 

Premises ID is a contract conveying a change of title of ownership to the USDA acting as agent for the federal government.  It is a contractual surrendering and abandonment of private property and the allodial property rights of the sovereign individual. A report on their case is found here.

I am putting up on my website a petition that people can fill out, so we

can present it in Max’s and the Monchilovichs’ cases.  Please look for it

at:   www.robtaylorforsenate.com/farmers_need_us.php.

It will be there before 12 noon CST today 11/21/09. Please direct people

you know to it.

McCotter: “Sovereign Wealth Funds Diminish Economic Liberty”

Leave a comment

 Thursday, March 06, 2008

 

This is not protectionism of anything except Americans’ liberty, prosperity, sovereignty, and security.”

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI-11), House Republican Policy Chairman, recently spoke on the House floor about the threat of sovereign wealth funds  The text of McCotter’s remarks are below:

 “Mr. Speaker, I would like today to discuss an issue that is on the horizon that could very well affect the economic freedom of Americans, especially their family’s prosperity and happiness. It is an issue that I would also like to thank the chairman of the Financial Services Committee, Representative Frank, and the ranking member of the subcommittee, Representative Kanjorski, for bringing forward.

“The issue I am talking about is the issue of sovereign wealth funds. Many people will question what is a sovereign wealth fund? The answer is very simple. A sovereign wealth fund is a fund that is controlled by a foreign government that then invests into the private market of the United States.

“Many people, especially those within my own party, disturbingly think sovereign wealth funds are a wonderful way to inject capital into the United States. The reality is these are very dangerous instrumentalities of foreign nations and would allow for the potential interference of these foreign nations in our domestic affairs, and not only within our economic sphere.

“One of the reasons I joined the Republican Party was because I oppose socialism, communism; and I wanted to advance the cause of liberty. A sovereign wealth fund denies all of those. Again, a sovereign wealth fund is controlled by a government. Those who recall economics can understand that when a government buys an asset from the private sector, when the government owns it, the product or service has been “nationalized.” This is the root of socialism. Government buys something in the private sector, socialism gets bigger, free markets and free enterprise and free people get diminished. This is the root problem of a sovereign wealth fund. It will diminish the economic liberty of individuals in the face of governments that are trying to control free enterprise.

“We should not have this occurring in the United States of America, the bastion of free enterprise conducted by free people.

“The second problem I have with sovereign wealth funds grows from the first: a foreign country controls this fund. This is not protectionism of anything except Americans’ liberty, prosperity, sovereignty, and security.

“The Communist Chinese have one of the largest sovereign wealth funds in the world. As they continue to tell us, although few people seem to understand that they are serious, they remain communists. The communist sovereign wealth fund from China comes in and buys private assets in the United States. Those government assets are now socialized; and, again, your freedom, liberty, prosperity, and security are diminished and there is a huge problem with this in the hands of the Communist Chinese.

“In addition, whereas in the free market private investment funds have to raise capital voluntarily from individuals and then make rational decisions based upon the profit motive, a sovereign government’s wealth fund is allowed to take and spend and invest. They spend and invest that which they take from their people. They have no accountability to these citizens, and they can invest for a political motive.

“These entities of sovereign wealth funds are antithetical to private sector free market investment. And, again, when they are forced to operate on a private sector profit motive, the sovereign wealth fund can operate on a political motive, which may or may not be in the long-term interests of the people of the United States.

“So for two reasons I would like to go on record immediately in my opposition to sovereign wealth funds in any nation’s hands being invested in the United States and socializing our private sector assets. And I would like to also especially emphasize my abject contempt for nations that are opposed to the United States’ continued existence as a bastion of liberty being able to buy up influence within the United States based upon a solely political motive, and that political motive is not in the people’s best interests.

“So to my fellow Republicans I would ask them to remember why they are Republicans, to remember that we have the duty to advance the economic liberty of Americans and to protect and preserve their liberty and prosperity and security, and ask them to reassess these sovereign wealth funds. Because no matter how much money they inject into our economy to socialize private sector assets, the cost we are going to pay to the long-term vitality of our free people is too high a price to tender to the very enemies of our existence.

– These remarks were delivered on Thursday, March 6, 2008 on the floor of the U.S. Capitol.

The final phase before the emergence of the North American Union

1 Comment

The coming collapse of our nation is no accident.

 

What is about to befall us is no accident.  The planning that has gone into the destruction of not only our economy, but our sovereignty as a nation has been carefully staged to make it appear almost accidental and will presented as the only way out.

 

The Security & Prosperity Partnership that erodes our sovereignty is not an accident and neither is the intent to merge the US, Canada and Mexico into one big corporately controlled region which recognizes neither sovereignty nor national identity.

 

To facilitate this coup, successive congresses have ceded their authority not only to the executive, but also to government agencies created for the sole purpose of implementing various aspects of this coup intended to dismantle individual pieces of the plan.  Then over the last eight years, our economy was intentionally brought to the edge of ruin;  an edge that will never see us returned to our former state.

 

The bailout bills, stimulus bills are all focused on maintaining the same institutions and agencies that have created the crisis.  All the admonishments we have been subjected to regarding globalization, free markets, free trade, capitalism and how necessary these things were to a thriving economy have shown themselves to be nothing more than the tools for destroying one economy after another while a select few benefited enormously at everyone else’s expense.  Again, this was no accident.

 

If any one of the arguments for the unmitigated greed that has taken place were actually true……why didn’t we, in a free capitalist, free market, free trading, no interference in corporate business……let these businesses go down just like we are letting homeowners and workers?  Just like we are allowing small businesses and enterprises to?

 

While we bail out one corrupt sector after another not one of those concerned politicians offered up the idea of borrowing a trillion dollars to bail out main street.  That would be unconscionable…that would be socialism! Or worse…communism!  But we have no problem with fascism.  We castigate homeowners who overextended themselves, but reward predatory lenders, mismanaged investment companies, banks and insurance companies.  We reward international corporations with multi-billion dollar subsidies and tax credits and breaks while they post billions in corporate profits and then we take part in the social disparaging of those who are on welfare. 

 

We are throwing what will amount to trillions of dollars into the coffers of businesses and individuals who should have been hung publicly for the damage they have done to our nation, but who were instead rewarded for their greed.  And, to add insult to injury….they expect us to finance this debt.  But I have these questions:

 

Why are these companies who got these funds not held liable for repaying them?  If throwing this money into them will make them profitable again….why can’t they repay these loans from their profits rather than taxpayers? 

 

Not one of those individuals who created this supposed crisis has had to give up anything….not assets, homes, cars, yachts, jets….nothing. 

 

On the other hand……how many of you got to keep your home, cars, or anything else you had when you realized you had hit bottom?  Did anyone offer to bail you out?  To borrow money and hold your neighbors responsible for paying it back?

 

Our government as a whole has acted not to protect us, but instead aligned itself with those who they believe will substantially reward them for their efforts.

 

In order for the North American Union to replace the sovereign United States, we had to be destroyed….otherwise we would never accept the conversion.  We have to lose our jobs, our homes, and soon our access to food.  We have to be humbled, made submissive and threatened with our very existence.  We have to have everything we have known, everything we believed in; even our freedom taken from us to make us quietly accept the conversion from free sovereign nation to one of corporate controlled region.

 

We are on the verge of collapse and life as we have known it is about to change radically.  At some point, when enough of us are hungry, homeless and without hope the political corporate monster that we have allowed the government to morph into will show itself.  Those who speak for this monster will start out by saying, ….”We have to act quickly to protect the American people…..at this point I would suggest you make the decision whether to try to run or to stand up and fight for what is rightfully yours.

The Curse of Capitalism

Leave a comment

 

by Alan Adaschik

 

Government is government and business is business and the two are very different from each other.  A business exists solely to earn profits for its owners.  On the other hand, a prime function of government is to keep the playing field level between citizens so that no one person or groups of people can take unfair advantage of others.  This being the case, it should be clear that the goals of government and corporations are at cross purposes with each other.  A business earns profits by exploiting its environment and seeking advantage in the market place.  In contrast, governments exist to ensure that a business does not wrongfully exploit the environment, take unfair advantage of their competitors or customers, and operates in a manner that is beneficial and positive for all concerned.

 

It should be obvious that a business will maximize profits if it is able to control the environment within which it operates.  Unfortunately, it is also obvious that the best ways of doing this is to influence and control the government which is supposed to be controlling it.  And there’s the rub.  When a corporation is able to control its government, corruption is the order of the day and instead of properly performing one of its prime functions, the government in question, instead, aids and abets the corporation so it can wrongfully have its way with us.  So it is in the United States today.  Corporations have such a lock upon our government and the other institutions of our society that they are free to plunder us and our national resources at will.  The situation has progressed to the point where capitalism, the goose that laid the golden egg for the people of this nation, has now become a curse upon us.  Capitalists are now our masters instead of being our servants and without any controls upon them they are self-serving masters at best.

 

Validation of the foregoing is clearly evident all around us.  These include a revolving door between corporations and their controlling governmental agencies, a Medicare Prescription Drug Program that benefits drug companies more that it does program participants, a government which is hostile to environmental concerns and global warming issues, multi-billion dollar corporate contracts awarded on a no bid basis without any semblance of control or accountability, a government which totally ignores over-population issues, a monetary system primarily beneficial to its owners that is bankrupting our Nation, a government that is flooding the nation with immigrants and only pays lip service to the issue of illegal immigration, a government that is dissolving our borders and which places trade issues before and above our sovereignty, energy policies that favor and enrich energy companies, a flagrant de-regulation of corporations in all sectors of our economy, the wonton and unbridled privitation of traditional governmental functions including those of our armed forces, and the creation of a New World Order where corporations rule and hold ultimate authority over our government and economic well being.

 

As a people, this is where we are today and this did not happen to us by accident.  We lost control of our lives and government in 1913 with passage of the Federal Reserve Act which created the Federal Reserve Bank, a privately owned corporation which was wrongfully given the power to earn profits by loaning us our own money at interest.  Because of this, Americans were forced to pay an income tax on the fruits of their labor which helped make the robber baron bankers rich beyond their wildest dreams.  This wrongfully acquired wealth gave rise to the New World Order and its stepchild, the World Trade Organization (WTO).  Incredibly, this criminal organization, by way of a simple unconstitutional legislative act, was given authority over and the power to overrule, our Congress, President, and our Supreme Court.

 

This last statement is not speculation or fantasy but, instead, a cold hard fact substantiated by the GATT accord which states that, “Each member (of the WTO) shall ensure the conformity of its laws, regulations, and administrative procedures with its obligations as provided (for) in the annexed Agreements”.  The annexed Agreements establish a procedure whereby the Ruling Panels of the WTO will be the final authority over all disputes between members.  At first glance, this seems innocent enough but the true power and reach of the WTO becomes evident when one realizes that almost everything that happens within the borders of a nation affects the costs of goods sold and traded in world markets.  And this includes environmental laws, laws concerning workers and their well being, laws affecting interstate commerce, etc, etc.  In short, the WTO is not just a world trade organization but instead, a World Government which over time, will grow in power and control such that national origin will have little meaning other than to describe the area of the world within which a person is born.  National differences and identity will become non-existent and meaningless.

 

The establishment of the WTO and other sovereignty busting treaties such as NAFTA and CAFTA opened up the world for American corporations and predictable, they moved their operations overseas in droves where they could take advantage of lax environmental laws and the cheap labor of third world countries.  Corporate flight progressed to such a degree that the United States is no longer an industrial nation and has now what is euphemistically called a consumer economy.  This is bad enough, but concurrent with the plunder of the industrial base of this nation, corporate influence brought on a wave deregulation which, unfortunately, included our financial and banking institutions.  Predictably, the loosening of financial controls brought on a housing boom as speculators kited the value of property and homes throughout the nation.  This largess eventually resulted in the mortgage meltdown and market crash we presently are in.  This is where America finds itself today; woefully in debt and going deeper in dept with each passing day, in a recession with no end or bottom in sight, fighting a debilitating two front war of imperialism to no ones benefit but the terrorists, and dragging the rest of the world down into the cesspool we created or more correctly, the cesspool created by the New World Order and the corporate moguls who foolishly and self-servingly thought that a return to the wild west days of the early industrial revolution was the best way to bring freedom and prosperity to the world.

 

Many years ago, we used to subscribe to the notion of enlightened self-interest as being the fundamental driving force behind our capitalist economic system.  However, of late we have forgotten the adage that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.  We also forgot that man is essentially a greed driven animal and if given the power to control his own economic environment, greed will become dominant at the expense of what is right, moral, reasonable, correct, proper, and/or enlightened.  With the demise of unions, Government was the only remaining entity that could possibly moderate and control the excesses of corporations and the unfortunate truth of the matter is that corporations, through greed, petty self-interest, and the power of the almighty dollar have rendered our government useless and ineffectual for this purpose.  The situation has progressed to the point where our government is no longer our government.  Instead, it is a tool used by corporations and the New World Order to keep us docile and compliant while they have their way with us.

 

Now that the inevitable collapse has come, everyone, including the corporations who engineered this mess, is calling upon government to step in and save us.  How wonderful!  Our industrial base is gone, inflation and war has sapped our savings, retirement funds, and purchasing power and our government in a final act of stupidity and senselessness, elects to bail out our failed banking industry by buying up its bad debt.  Doesn’t anyone in government realize that it is using fiat money to buy up debt that was created by the banks with the stroke of a pen?  Unconscionable, borrowing and debt brought on this crisis and to address it, our government decides to borrow more and put us further into debt so financial institutions will once again begin to loan people money they do not have in the first place.  And then on top of all this, we are expected to spend more money we do not have to stimulate the economy when everything spent eventually ends up in the hands of foreign corporations.  Truly, confidence in our government and our financial institutions is what is needed to get us out of this mess, but under our present circumstances, any citizen who has confidence in our government and the financial institutions which rule us is so out of touch with reality that they are certifiably insane.

 

In 1913, our government, in violation of our Constitution, created the Federal Reserve Bank and gave corporations control of our government.  We are now experiencing the inevitable fruits of this New World Order; ineffectual and dysfunctional government, gross and flagrant corruption of all the institutions of our society, dissolution of our borders, collapse of our monetary system, the plundering of our wealth and resources, and the robbing of our rights, heritage, and freedom.  And now to save us, our government has been blackmailed into rewarding those who did this to us by using our money to buy up their mistakes.

 

We, as a people, must do everything possible to restore our Republic and once again become a free and independent nation.  To accomplish this, the first step we should take is to repeal the Federal Reserve Act and take back control of our money supply and economy.  In conjunction with this, GATT, NAFTA, and CAFTA should be repealed and all banks associated with the Federal Reserves System nationalized.  Our dept to the Federal Reserve Bank and foreign interests should be declared null and void and all foreign aid should immediately cease.  We should then close all our overseas military bases and bring our troops to help protect and rebuild this Nation.  Finally, criminal proceeding should be brought against those who engineered our financial collapse and turned our government into a criminal enterprise.

 

A new beginning as described above is the only thing that will restore confidence in our government and save us and the rest of the world from the horrible fate which a fractional reserve banking system has imposed upon us.  To those who decry this as being Socialism, I say that ridding the world of Fascism is not Socialism.  Furthermore, there is nothing Socialistic about our government running and controlling our banking and financial institutions in keeping with the Constitution as the Founding Fathers intended.

 

America, wake up!  It is already too late for an easy solution.  Soon, it will be too late for any solution.

Does the majority of America really believe Socialism is the better cultural system than the Capitalist, free market system we have known since establishment of the US Constitution? That is the prime question voters must ask themselves in this Presidential election.

Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev in a speech at the Polish embassy in 1956 said “We will bury you.” He explained that meant not by a shovel but from within. The implication was that step by step, Communism would be introduced to Western nations until it eventually overwhelmed existing governance.

As in virtually all cultures, methods change but the end result is always in focus. In America, Mr. Khrushchev’s statement seems alive and well. The strong will of national governance given to us by our Founders has for over fifty years been whittled away at by laws, agreements, judicial rulings, Executive orders, signing statements and the

manipulation of policies favoring Socialistic over Capitalistic principles.

 

Since its founding in 1945, the United Nations has become more influential and powerful. The United States has signed on to several UN socialist policies that have become interwoven into elements of America’s governance. Examples are Smart Growth, environmental policies, endangered species, public/private partnership, federal control of education, gun control, land use control and other restrictions on freedom.

 

The contemporary end result seems to be actions that move the U.S. away from national governance toward world governance. Voters must understand the mindset of candidates and send to Washington DC only those who screen laws they support to their compliance with the U.S. constitution. 

 

Please know your candidates
and vote wisely,

Destroying America one law at a time.

2 Comments

The first thing every citizen should do before voting in the upcoming election is to read the U. S. Constitution which establishes the Rule Of Law this nation has followed to become tops in almost every category of governance. It is proven that America’s standard of living and ability toward innovation and progress has been unequalled. Why then are there so many people applying pressure to junk this system and move toward socialism?

Socialist connections enter into conversations daily: world class, multicultural, diversity, equality, social justice, communitarian, community service, sustainable development, internationalism, environmentalism, excellence, group learning, lifelong learning, relativism, public/private partnerships are a few that come to mind. These words are used to do one thing, and that is to destroy the culture that we have known and replace it with a new form of socialist governance.

Former Soviet Premier Khrushchev said we will be transformed into socialist/communist state without firing a shot by slow, incremental changes in our system. His words are rapidly coming true. Change agents (there are schools to train them) are active daily and have infiltrated every controlling element of society. The result is that our schools no longer teach students an understanding of the U.S. Constitution, American history, civics, geography, and are light on reading, writing and math but heavy on responsibility to the “common good.”

Our Federal government has signed international laws, treaties and agreements that promote and in many instances force socialistic controls on business and citizens. In some cases, like the Kyoto Treaty, when we have not signed the Treaty, many of the requirements are introduced anyway through government action.

The United Nations has steadily gained power through international agreements over decades, always called “voluntary” but once signed that carry the influence of law. Their footprints can be found in our national, state, county and township laws. Examples are “Smart Growth, transportation, endangered species, wetlands, water control, land control, air control, etc. The ingenious part of this is that some of these things are helpful, providing the tools to sell them to the public but never exposing the ultimate end game of total control.

Your probably wondering why all the explanation. It is because as all this has been going on, most leaders in control of our Congress and legislatures, regardless of which major party, have apparently fallen into the belief that socialism is the way to go and capitalism is no longer viable. It is an exercise in greed and power. Socialism has been tried many times and has never worked. A prime reason is that socialism represents an oligarchy of elites making all decisions for the workers (slaves.) Our founders warned us against this very possibility.

Leaders seem to agree that the U.S. has advanced too quickly over other world nations and needs to be brought down to its knees while funding the advancement of other nations never acknowledging that our advancement brings other nations up as well. Proof is everywhere if you make the effort to look.

A tried and true method of moving socialism ahead quickly is to create a crisis and then magically present a government solution that the public buys into because they are engulfed in fear and want a quick fix. Current examples are global warming, oil and gasoline shortages and the sub-prime mortgage debacle. Do you really think experts at the governing level had no hand in creating these problems that affect our culture, society and pocket books?

This election season, we MUST screen candidates to assure they will live up to the oath they take when elected to honor and protect the U.S. constitution, as presented by the founders, when making laws for the people.The elites pulling the strings of our economic and political system knew exactly what they were doing when creating the economic crisis we are now faced with. Since at least the early 80’s when President Bush “I” proclaimed “We are moving toward a single world order,” the well planned structure to accomplish world governance over national governance has been well oiled by controlling elites and set into motion.

 

As in all efforts to accomplish world order, first the structure in place must be eliminated, or weakened to a state of unimportance. Then the new structure can be introduced into the vacuum created.  Examples of this abound in our culture.

Education, one of the first targets in any takeover of governance, has been converted to the socialistic UN “Education For All” world format.

Trade agreements have been used to strip  manufacturing and middle class jobs from our system as well as grease the skids for a “Region of the Americas through unconstitutional initiatives like the Security and Prosperity Partnership (a monumental oxymoron) which has not even been approved by Congress.

Elements of U.N. Agenda 21, the blueprint for single world order, have been introduced throughout our business, political and governing agencies in initiatives like “public/private partnerships, smart growth” and others.

The transition of America from a stable economic nation to one of total indebtedness is there for all to see.

Now we have the collapse of our banking system with the inevitable “government fix” that will undoubtedly have been passed by Congress as you read this which solidifies a “public/private partnership” of monumental size that provides government oversight in yet another large segment of our economic system.

How long will it be before the dollar loses its world support and we are told we must introduce a new regional exchange, the Amero to compete with the Euro???
The hundreds of public/private partnerships introduced in the last couple of decades are simply introductions of government into business, in other words, Fascism. Honest reporting of this banking crisis would have started back on 1993 when Republicans in Congress tried to introduce legislation to provide some controls over Freddy Mae but were shot down by numerous Democrats proclaiming there was no problem. I believe it was President FDR that said “nothing in politics happens that isn’t planned.” That still applies today. 

Both major party Presidential candidates are members of the Council On Foreign Relations whose mission is single world governance. When will people wake up and realize that if we do not begin to stop this movement NOW and begin following our U.S. constitution as intended by the founders, there will be no freedom and power of the people?

American taxpayers enraged as congress feigns deafness over bailout.

1 Comment

Here it is in a nutshell:

 

  • We can’t have universal healthcare because that would be socialism.  Better to let those who are not here illegally suffer, or maybe die, all for the sake of semantics.

 

The concept of insurance seems to have outlived its usefulness and its original purpose.  AIG was a perfect example of a supposed insurance company that was doing anything but providing the coverage it was selling.  Bad investments using premiums as capital, AIG manipulated its books, failed to file the required annual federal documents, and its taxes. Insurance as we know and think of it no longer exists and has not for ten years or so.  Insurance now means that these corporations can be assured that the premiums they have collected and mismanaged will continue to finance everything but claims.

 

  • We can’t help out the 1.7 million who have gone into foreclosure just this year…they should have known better, its their own faults…that would be socialism too.

 

Even that joker Paulson admitted that the securities used to back up loans, mortgages and investments were so complex that he could not fully understand them.  The sub-prime loans to consumers were just as complex and not fully understood by those selling them.  This is fascism.

 

  • We can’t extend unemployment benefits to those who lost employment due to off shoring of jobs and business closings, or due to the illegal hiring of illegal aliens.

 

The same companies and corporations now screaming that we have to bail them out were many of the same companies that closed businesses here and moved overseas for cheap labor.  Why don’t they go to those markets and banks and get their bailout?

 

  • We cannot regulate or perpetrate any kind of oversight over the conduct and ethics of free market capitalists as that would again be socialism.

 

Michelle Bachmann of Minnesota when interviewed CNN claimed that regulation and oversight would be, socialism.  No regulation and no oversight is fascism!  I like socialism better.

 

  • We can’t confiscate the unethically or illegally acquired wealth of those who manipulated the system and are now blackmailing the public into bailing them out.  

 

The same people who bankrupted and profited from the markets that are now collapsing for some reason are not being required to anti-up.  In fact, many are walking away with millions in unearned severance bonuses and salaries.  AND!  Many of these same corrupt CEO’s are being considered for positions in managing the stolen billions confiscated from taxpayers.  This is FASCISM.

 

 

  • We can’t repeal the special tax cuts to the upper 3% who benefited directly from this manipulated “free market”.  That’s an unfair distribution of wealth.  It’s unfair for the wealthy to be taxed regressively as the middle and poor classes are. You guessed it…that’s socialism or even worse communism.

 

But, for some reason redistribution of wealth is of no concern when you take from the poor and middle class and use that money to finance the wealthy who even during this calamity are unwilling to contribute and who will forfeit nothing!  No one applies the term socialism to this redistribution.  And they shouldn’t.  The proper term is FASCISM!!

 

The same people who ran these businesses into the ground, their investors who condoned the practices that lead to this downfall, are unwilling to even talk about pooling their own collected resources and bailing themselves out. 

 

These people have far more money than we do.  Why are they not being held accountable for shoring up their own disaster? 

 

While American citizens have been enraged over this bailout, the pro-corporate, business as usual terms of the bailout, congress plugs its ears and pretends not to hear.  If ordinary people can look at this situation and see that not only is it not necessary, but totally unwarranted….what’s wrong with congress?

California Declares War on Homeschoolers

2 Comments

Homeschoolers are threatened with legal action and the confiscation of their children by the state if they do not comply with California’s educational policy. Is this really for the good of the children and to make sure they are getting a good education?

Justice H. Walter Croskey stated:  

A primary purpose of the educational system is to train school children in good citizenship, patriotism and loyalty to the state and the nation as a means of protecting the public welfare.

In other words, a primary purpose of the educational system is to disseminate state-sponsored propaganda.

According to an article by Bob Egelko and Jill Tucker titled

Homeschoolers’ setback sends shock waves through state

The Second District Court of Appeal ruled that California law requires parents to send their children to full-time public or private schools or have them taught by credentialed tutors at home.

Either send your child to public school for the proper indoctrination, or pay for a state-credentialed tutor who has been licensed in the proper methods of indoctrination to state policies, or be criminally prosecuted.

“California courts have held that … parents do not have a constitutional right to homeschool their children,” Justice H. Walter Croskey said in the 3-0 ruling issued on Feb. 28. “Parents can be criminally prosecuted for failing to comply,” Croskey said.

The appellate court ruling has set a precedent that can now be used to go after homeschoolers. “With this case law, anyone in California who is homeschooling without a teaching credential is subject to prosecution for truancy violation, which could require community service, heavy fines and possibly removal of their children under allegations of educational neglect,” Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute said.

The term “educational neglect” lends one to believe that this ruling is concerned with the actual educational quality that students may or may not receive from non-credentialed parents. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

Leslie Heimov, executive director of the Children’s Law Center of Los Angeles, said her organization’s chief concern was not the quality of the children’s education, but their “being in a place daily where they would be observed by people who had a duty to ensure their ongoing safety.”

The state could care less about the quality of education. The main thrust is to have children “in a place daily where they would be observed by people who had a duty to ensure their ongoing safety” and to receive proper indoctrination “in good citizenship, patriotism and loyalty to the state and the nation as a means of protecting the public welfare.”

In California, the state has effectively taken over the rights of parents to “protect” and “educate” their children. Children are the property of the state as soon as the mother gives birth. The state assumes responsibility for their protection, care, and guidance. If parents do not comply with the state’s mandate, they no longer have the privilege of housing their own children, and are discarded as unfit caretakers of the state’s property.

Homeschoolers’ setback sends shock waves through state

Friday, March 7, 2008

(03-07) 04:00 PST LOS ANGELESA California appeals court ruling clamping down on homeschooling by parents without teaching credentials sent shock waves across the state this week, leaving an estimated 166,000 children as possible truants and their parents at risk of prosecution.The homeschooling movement never saw the case coming.“At first, there was a sense of, ‘No way,’ ” said homeschool parent Loren Mavromati, a resident of Redondo Beach (Los Angeles County) who is active with a homeschool association. “Then there was a little bit of fear. I think it has moved now into indignation.”The ruling arose from a child welfare dispute between the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services and Philip and Mary Long of Lynwood, who have been homeschooling their eight children. Mary Long is their teacher, but holds no teaching credential.The parents said they also enrolled their children in Sunland Christian School, a private religious academy in Sylmar (Los Angeles County), which considers the Long children part of its independent study program and visits the home about four times a year.The Second District Court of Appeal ruled that California law requires parents to send their children to full-time public or private schools or have them taught by credentialed tutors at home.

Some homeschoolers are affiliated with private or charter schools, like the Longs, but others fly under the radar completely. Many homeschooling families avoid truancy laws by registering with the state as a private school and then enroll only their own children.

Yet the appeals court said state law has been clear since at least 1953, when another appellate court rejected a challenge by homeschooling parents to California’s compulsory education statutes. Those statutes require children ages 6 to 18 to attend a full-time day school, either public or private, or to be instructed by a tutor who holds a state credential for the child’s grade level.

“California courts have held that … parents do not have a constitutional right to homeschool their children,” Justice H. Walter Croskey said in the 3-0 ruling issued on Feb. 28. “Parents have a legal duty to see to their children’s schooling under the provisions of these laws.”

Parents can be criminally prosecuted for failing to comply, Croskey said.

“A primary purpose of the educational system is to train school children in good citizenship, patriotism and loyalty to the state and the nation as a means of protecting the public welfare,” the judge wrote, quoting from a 1961 case on a similar issue.

Union pleased with ruling

The ruling was applauded by a director for the state’s largest teachers union.

“We’re happy,” said Lloyd Porter, who is on the California Teachers Association board of directors. “We always think students should be taught by credentialed teachers, no matter what the setting.”

A spokesman for the state Department of Education said the agency is reviewing the decision to determine its impact on current policies and procedures. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell issued a statement saying he supports “parental choice when it comes to homeschooling.”

Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute, which agreed earlier this week to represent Sunland Christian School and legally advise the Long family on a likely appeal to the state Supreme Court, said the appellate court ruling has set a precedent that can now be used to go after homeschoolers. “With this case law, anyone in California who is homeschooling without a teaching credential is subject to prosecution for truancy violation, which could require community service, heavy fines and possibly removal of their children under allegations of educational neglect,” Dacus said.

Parents say they choose homeschooling for a variety of reasons, from religious beliefs to disillusionment with the local public schools.

Homeschooling parent Debbie Schwarzer of Los Altos said she’s ready for a fight.

Schwarzer runs Oak Hill Academy out of her Santa Clara County home. It is a state-registered private school with two students, she said, noting they are her own children, ages 10 and 12. She does not have a teaching credential, but she does have a law degree.

“I’m kind of hoping some truancy officer shows up on my doorstep,” she said. “I’m ready. I have damn good arguments.”

She opted to teach her children at home to better meet their needs.

The ruling, Schwarzer said, “stinks.”

Began as child welfare case

The Long family legal battle didn’t start out as a test case on the validity of homeschooling. It was a child welfare case.

A juvenile court judge looking into one child’s complaint of mistreatment by Philip Long found that the children were being poorly educated but refused to order two of the children, ages 7 and 9, to be enrolled in a full-time school. He said parents in California have a right to educate their children at home.

The appeals court told the juvenile court judge to require the parents to comply with the law by enrolling their children in a school, but excluded the Sunland Christian School from enrolling the children because that institution “was willing to participate in the deprivation of the children’s right to a legal education.”

The decision could also affect other kinds of homeschooled children, including those enrolled in independent study or distance learning through public charter schools – a setup similar to the one the Longs have, Dacus said.

Charter school advocates disagreed, saying Thursday that charter schools are public and are required to employ only credentialed teachers to supervise students – whether in class or through independent study.

Ruling will apply statewide

Michael Smith, president of the Home School Legal Defense Association, said the ruling would effectively ban homeschooling in the state.

“California is now on the path to being the only state to deny the vast majority of homeschooling parents their fundamental right to teach their own children at home,” he said in a statement.

But Leslie Heimov, executive director of the Children’s Law Center of Los Angeles, which represented the Longs’ two children in the case, said the ruling did not change the law.

“They just affirmed that the current California law, which has been unchanged since the last time it was ruled on in the 1950s, is that children have to be educated in a public school, an accredited private school, or with an accredited tutor,” she said. “If they want to send them to a private Christian school, they can, but they have to actually go to the school and be taught by teachers.”

Heimov said her organization’s chief concern was not the quality of the children’s education, but their “being in a place daily where they would be observed by people who had a duty to ensure their ongoing safety.”
