Beliefs of the American Left


Someone recently sent me an email entitled, "American Enigmas." I am sure someone authored these "enigmas," but I don't know who did. If you were that person, I would be more than happy to give you the credit. I certainly did not come up with them, but I believe they accurately reflect the American Left. Disclaimer: I am not certain that each one of the implied claims is accurate, but I believe most of them are. I have not taken the time to "fact-check" them. Here they are only slightly edited:


(1) Isn’t it strange that in America, our flag and our culture offend so many people, but our benefits don’t?

(2) How can the federal government ask U.S. citizens to pay back student loans - when illegal aliens are receiving a free education?

(3) Only in America are legal citizens labeled “racists” and “Nazis,” but illegal aliens are called “Dreamers.”

(4) Liberals say, “If confiscating all guns saves just one life, it’s worth it.” Well, then, if deporting all illegals saves just one life, wouldn’t that be worth it?

(5) I can’t quite figure out how you can proudly wave the flag of another country, - but consider it punishment to be sent back there.

(6) The Constitution: It doesn’t need to be rewritten, - it needs to be reread. [How about followed?]

(7) William F. Buckley said: “Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other points of view, and are then shocked and offended when they discover there are other points of view.”

(8) Joseph Sobran said: “‘Need’ now means wanting someone else’s money. ‘Greed’ means wanting to keep your own. ‘Compassion’ is when a politician arranges the transfer.”

(9) Florida has had 119 hurricanes since 1850, - but some people still insist the last one was due to climate change

How to Politicize Christmas


"Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday linked the Christmas nativity story to the plight of refugees, referencing "refugee babies in mangers" and their parents."

Her exact words: 
Joy to the World! Merry Christmas everyone - here’s to a holiday filled with happiness, family, and love for all people. 🌎(Including refugee babies in mangers + their parents.)
Let's get the facts straight. Mary and Joseph and Jesus were not refugees. They were citizens of the state of Israel under the domination of the Roman Empire. They had been commanded by Caesar Augustus to register, along with all the other citizens of the empire, for a census, probably for the purposes of taxation (Luke 2:1-3). 

They did not leave their own country. Joseph and Mary traveled from Nazareth to Bethlehem to register there for the census because Joseph was a blood descendant of King David, whose home town was Bethlehem (Luke 2:4-5).

Because Bethlehem was so crowded, lodging was difficult to come by. Mary gave birth to her son and placed him in a manger because there was no room for them in the kataluma (2646), which probably refers to the guest room of a home. Most homes were divided into two – the living quarters and the animal quarters. The home in which they stayed had no guest room available in the living quarters, so Joseph and Mary and the baby Jesus spent the night in the animal quarters of their guest home (Luke 2:6-7).

To be sure, Jesus was born in exceedingly humble circumstances. But Joseph and Mary were not refugees. 

To use the Christmas Story to promote the global Marxist mantra of open borders in all countries is a completely dishonest perversion of the truth. But since when have Marxists been careful to tell the truth? 

If Marxism were true, all those Central American refugees would be high-tailing it to the south to live in Venezuela!

Fund the Wall!

Border Wall: AFP/Getty Images
Various members of the Senate were singing Christmas carols as they rolled out a stop-gap measure to fund the government for another three months. But one thing was missing. There was no funding included for a border wall.

Apparently the State Department has $10 billion to spare for foreign aid (translate foreign bribery) to Southern Mexico and Central America. But no one can find even a paltry $5 billion for a border wall to defend our own country. Truly amazing!

I don't know about you, but I do not want anyone breaking and entering my home. And I don't want anyone breaking and entering my country. With impunity and blessing and financial aid and promised citizenship!!!

If the truth were known the Democratic Party as a whole, and many non-conservative Republicans are frankly interested in a country and a world with no borders at all. If a nation cannot control its borders, it ceases to be a nation. 

And frankly, that is what the leftists want. They are Global Marxists. Their dream is for a utopia in which there is a world government with no borders, and one in which they have dictatorial control. There will be a "new normal" of just above subsistence level incomes with everything run by the all-powerful, all-wise state. And since these Global Marxists will be running the show, they will have all kinds of perquisites that the unwashed masses, Hillary's "Basket of Deporables," will never gain.

Donald Trump has promised, then wavered, and now promised again, not to sign the funding bill that the Senate has passed unless it includes $5 billion to fund the border wall. And if he doesn't sign the Senate's bill, the government will shut down. 

I say, "Fund the Wall - or shut down the government!"

The REAL Collusion with Russia

Christopher Steele is the compiler of "the infamous dossier [allegedly] linking President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign to Russia, alongside other unverified claims against Mr. Trump and his allies." What is going on here?

Hilary Clinton was not supposed to lose this election. The pollsters got it all wrong. Even Karl Rove, former Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor to President George W. Bush was flummoxed. He was a guest political commentator on Fox News the night of the election. As the returns kept coming in and Donald Trump was looking surprisingly strong, Rove turned to other guests and said in utter frustration, "If things keep going as they appear to be, may God help us!"

Within hours of the conclusion of the election, Hilary Clinton and
her minions wanted to explain the "real reason" that Hilary had lost the election she was guaranteed to win. It was because Donald Trump colluded with the Russians to overthrow the election.

Hilary needed some help. She needed opposition research to sully and stymie Donald Trump's presidency. Christopher Steele, a former British spy, had connections with the Russians. He compiled a dossier on Donald Trump. None of the charges in the dossier have ever been proven. Those who are in the know and who are honest say the whole dossier is bogus. But that didn't stop Hilary. Hilary's Presidential Campaign paid for the dossier. This was never revealed to the FISA court.

Not one thing in the Russia dossier has ever been proven. And yet the US mainstream media, together with the inseparable leftist Democratic party (the two are coterminous) kept pounding the airwaves and TV networks and newspapers for nearly twenty four months now, screaming that Donald Trump is an illicit President because he stole the election from Hilary.

The Deep State planted spies in the Trump campaign. Eventually leftist Robert Mueller was appointed as "independent"prosecutor. His self-appointed task was to go fishing for anything that would taint Donald Trump and ultimately remove him from office. When the "Russian collusion" tack all but evaporated, his job became that of planting the charge that Donald Trump used campaign contributions to buy off the silence of women who had made charges against him.

In the end, it was really Hillary Clinton and her campaign who colluded with the Russians' dirty tricks operatives to try to steal the election from Donald Trump. That is the story of the REAL collusion with Russia.

Is President Obama really interested in the welfare of America?

I remember when then Senator Barack Obama was campaigning for President. Someone in the audience asked him if he were aware that, by lowering taxes, he would actually increase revenue flowing into the U. S. Treasury, and decrease the deficit. His reply was both astounding and revealing, and I paraphrase: "That is of no concern to me. I am more concerned about fairness."

What that told me was that he was more interested in taking money from one group of citizens and transferring it to another group of citizens than he was in improving the financial health of the country. His view put into shoe-leather the political / economic philosophy of Karl Marx: "From each according to his ability; to each according to his need." In short, President Obama is a Marxist, though few dare to be that honest about him.

Five days before his inauguration early in 2009, President-elect Obama made an ominous prediction. He said, "We are five days away from beginning the fundamental transformation of America." He wasn't kidding. Having watched and listened to Mr. Obama for over six years now, I have become convinced he is a global Marxist. Not content merely with national socialism, the President is systematically pursuing global socialism, in my opinion.

His global socialism can be seen in  his approval of allowing hordes of illegal aliens to cascade into our country. He makes a token show of enforcing the borders, but his policies encourage a flood of illegals. And why? you ask. Well, if one is a global socialist, he wishes to redistribute the wealth of America to the disadvantaged masses of Latin America. What better way than to allow them to flood across our borders, their well-being subsidized by over-burdened American taxpayers.

From the President's perspective, it is unfair that Americans should have it so good. It is morally incumbent upon Americans, whether they agree with the idea or not, to have their wealth transferred to the poor of the world.

President Obama's global Marxism can also be seen in his response to the Ebola outbreak. Where past policy and common sense would dictate that we should close our borders to all visitors from infected countries, that is not the President's policy at all. One can almost hear him reasoning to himself, "Why is it fair that poverty-stricken African nations have Ebola and Americans do not?"

So the President's political and economic philosophy, it seems to me, is not directed toward "What is good for America?" Rather, it is directed toward, "How can I best advance the cause of global Marxism?"

I am neither the first, nor the only American to think this. Thomas Sowell, who can hardly be accused of being a racist, has written an interesting article. It is entitled, "Obama's Priority: NOT Protecting Americans."

Here is his assessment of the President's refusal to bar infected Ebola carriers from entering the US:
At a minimum, it suggests that he takes his conception of himself as a citizen of the world more seriously than he takes his role as president of the United States. At worst, he may consider Americans’ interests expendable in the grand scheme of things internationally. If so, this would explain a lot of his foreign policy disasters around the world, which seem inexplicable otherwise.
As we move closer and closer to the end of the President's second term, I suspect we will see more and more decisions and policies that will help answer the question, "Is President Obama really interested in the welfare of America?" He would insist that he is, of course. I suspect I will differ with him.

An Eerie Comparison between Dictator Fidel Castro and President Barack Obama

The Bible instructs us to honor and pray for our government officials.
First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. 1 Timothy 2:1-2
Furthermore, it is God who places all rulers into office. As Daniel asserted, God "removes kings and establishes kings." Daniel 2:21

Nevertheless, those facts do not exempt us from scrutinizing and knowing who our officials are.

Rafael Cruz, father of US Senator Ted Cruz, gave a speech based upon his own experience. He grew up in Cuba when Fidel Castro was laying the groundwork for a Marxist Revolution in the island country. He watched dictator Fidel Castro make unilateral moves to silence the press, condemn rich people, and lower the wage of a typical laborer to $14 per month.

The elder Cruz sees some eerie similarities between the modi operandi of both Dictator Castro and President Obama.

View Rafael Cruz' impassioned speech yourself. Make your own decision.


An uniformed public is a public at risk of tyranny.

Syria, Puppet of Iran

If there was any doubt that Iran uses Syria as a compliant base from which to attack Israel, that doubt can safely be laid to rest.

Hassan Shateri, Iranian general, was "a high ranking member of the Quds Force." He was overseeing the shipment of Russian-built SA-17 anti-aircraft missiles to Hezbollah in order to disrupt Israel's ability to fly reconnaissance missions over Lebanon.

When Israeli intelligence spotted Shateri actually joining the convoy tasked to deliver the missiles, Shateri and the convoy became a high-level target.

It was only reported last week that Shateri had died. However, his actual death occurred when Israeli forces decimated the convoy clear back in January, according to a UK report.

Of course, the Iranian press, back in January, had predictably denounced Israel's attack on Syria, but it was not really the Syrians who were the target. It was General Shateri of Iran.
