“This whole concept of political correctness … it’s going to destroy our nation.” That was the no-nonsense response of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson last week to Rep. Jennifer Wexton, D-Va.
Wexton was trying for a “gotcha” moment in a congressional hearing when she asked Carson if he would “apologize” for being quoted for expressing concern over “big, hairy men” trying to gain entry to an Alaska women’s homeless shelter.
I could not have said it better. On the most recent edition of “Washington Watch,” Carson—or Dr. Politically Incorrect, as I’ve called him—joined me to make it clear he will not kowtow to political correctness.
“It’s foolishness because, you know, the First Amendment guarantees people freedom of speech,” he said. “What political correctness does is it makes people afraid to express themselves. So coming in the back door, it actually suppresses the First Amendment. And we need to be very, very wary of anything that takes away our constitutional rights.”
Carson went on to nail the consequences of caving into the left’s tantrums:
“Anything that doesn’t agree with them is a hateful word, and that’s what I mean when I said we need to be more mature than that. That’s what I might expect from a third-grade playground. If we make everything such a sensitive subject and everybody has to sit down and filter everything that they say, and we’re listening carefully to their words instead of what their meaning is, what do we become as a society and as a people?”
We’ve got to nip it in the bud before it gets to the place where everybody just is silent. And they can’t say anything because it’s going to offend somebody.
Carson is speaking up for what is a commonsense policy: Sexually assaulted and abused women seeking shelter should not be forced to sleep next to men who think or act like they are women when they are biological men.
But he is also speaking up for free speech and freedom of religion. The left portrays the Trump administration as lacking compassion for people who need housing, but the opposite is true.
It is the Department of House and Urban Development under Carson’s leadership that has expanded access to people who need housing because the agency is once again allowing faith-based organizations to partner with the government after they were excluded during the Obama years. This inclusion of faith-based organization helps meet the needs in local communities all across America.
The Obama administration required faith-based groups to leave their faith at the door and pushed bizarre policies that put men in women’s homeless shelters. Thankfully, we have a HUD secretary who understands the principle that has guided America for centuries—equal rights for all, special rights for none.
That’s what makes America work, not political correctness.

This article originally appeared on Breitbart on October 13, 2019.
Demand Justice, an organization founded by former members of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and associated with a secretive “social welfare organization” financed by billionaire activist George Soros, is pushing a scheme to pack the Supreme Court with liberal justices by adding new seats to the nation’s highest court.
This comes after Demand Justice has failed in its repeated attempts to bring about the impeachment of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
A Demand Justice petition circulated over the weekend reads:The number of justices is not established in the Constitution — in fact, we’ve changed the number of justices seven times throughout our history.
We need every Democrat to join us. Sign the petition and tell Democrats to support adding seats to the Supreme Court today.
The missive, also promoted in Demand Justice mass emails, claims “Republicans stole a seat when they put Neil Gorsuch on the bench, so Democrats need to be committed to fighting back by adding seats to the Supreme Court.”
The petition continues, “You know what’s at stake: the right to a safe and legal abortion, the right to seek asylum, the right to a workplace free of discrimination for LGBTQ+ people, and so much more.”
The activism drive seeks to galvanize support for the concept of adding seats to the Supreme Court but does not explain the process of actually getting it done.
Immediately after the confirmation of Kavanaugh last year, Breitbart News reported that already some Democrats and progressive activists began shifting tactics, pushing the scheme to “pack” or “balance” the Supreme Court by adding two new seats to be filled by liberal judges.
The Supreme Court expansion plot would be enacted if Democrats retake Congress and the presidency in 2020, according to the plan.
Political scientist David Faris advocated in a book published last year for Democrats to pack the Supreme Court with as many liberal judges as they can. Farris branded the plan the “neutron option for the Supreme Court.”
Vice’s West Coast editor Harry Cheadle summarized Faris’s arguments thusly:
[It] would involve first proposing a constitutional amendment to end lifetime tenure on the court and pushing a proposal to let each president pick two justices per term, a compromise that Faris hopes would “end the court wars.” He suspects Republicans wouldn’t go for that, however, so he’d advise the next Democratic president to just “pack” the court as FDR tried to do in 1937 before Congress rose up against him and prevented it. That would involve passing a bill to expand the size of the court and allowing the president to appoint however many justices would be needed to create a new liberal majority, with the friendly Senate signing off on any appointee. (This would be legal, Faris points out, because there’s nothing in the Constitution stipulating the size of the court, which has in fact fluctuated in the past.)
Writing at NBC.com after Kavanagh’s nomination, political science professor Scott Lemieux opined that “Democrats are now much more likely to mobilize against an even more conservative court.”
But how might Democratic leaders respond?
A more likely scenario — especially if a Trumpified Supreme Court not only effectively overrules Roe v. Wade but then keeps striking down legislation passed by the next unified Democratic government — is expanding the size of the Supreme Court. The constitution does not fix the size of any federal appellate court, and the number of justices can be changed with simple majorities of both houses of Congress. Doing so isn’t hypothetical: After the Civil War, congressional Republicans manipulated the size of the court to ensure that it wouldn’t interfere with Reconstruction.
In July 2018, Yale Law School professors Ian Ayres and John Fabian Witt laid out the case in the Washington Post for expanding the Supreme Court, referring to the tactic as “court balancing.”
“Democrats need a Plan B for the Supreme Court. Here’s one option,” their oped was titled.
The duo advocated for Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to announce a plan aimed at “balancing” the Supreme Court if the Democrats can win a majority in Congress and take the presidency in the 2020 election.
Ayres and Witt note the Constitution does not stipulate the Supreme Court must have nine seats and they reference historical precedent for expanding the nation’s highest court:
The court originally had six seats. It expanded and contracted in the first half of the 19th century, then settled on nine. It has remained there since 1869, partly as a political norm and partly to preserve competitive equilibrium.
At crucial moments in U.S. politics, parties have acted to change the size of the Supreme Court. Often the tactic was a political power play. But sometimes it was undertaken for the good of the country, as during the Civil War, when the Republican Congress in 1863 added a seat to the court in part to protect the success of the war effort against formidable legal challenges.
The Democrats’ court-balancing proposal for 2020 should commit the party to expanding the size of the Supreme Court by appointing two new federal judges who, by statute, would be designated to sit on the court for 18 years; thereafter, the constitutionally required life tenure would be served in lower federal courts.
While pushing their proposal under the banner of “balancing,” the Yale professors do not disguise their goal of packing the court with two new liberal judges:
If Democrats took control of Congress and the presidency in 2020, the new administration would effectively have two Supreme Court slots to fill immediately. The party should commit to nominate one liberal (say, the liberal analog of Justice Neil M. Gorsuch) and to fill the other spot by renominating the liberal-centrist Garland himself.
Ayers and Witt were referring to the nomination of Merrick Garland, who was the pick of Barack Obama, then a lame duck president, to fill the slot left vacant following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.
Secretive Arabella Advisors
Demand Justice has played a central role in leading activism against Kavanaugh.
Demand Justice is fiscally sponsored by the Sixteen Thirty Fund, one of four nonprofits run by the secretive, massively funded Arabella Advisors strategy company that pushes the interests of wealthy leftist donors. Arabella specializes in sponsoring countless dark money pop-up organizations designed to look like grassroots activist groups, as exposed in a recent extensive report by conservative watchdog Capital Research Center.
Soros’s Open Society documents that it provided financing to Sixteen Thirty specifically earmarked for Demand Justice activism.
The Capital Research Center’s expose documented that from 2013-2017 alone, Arabella’s four nonprofits spent a combined $1.16 billion with the aim of advancing “the political policies desired by wealthy left-wing interests through hundreds of ‘front’ groups.”
“And those interests pay well: the network’s revenues grew by an incredible 392 percent over that same period,” the report related.
“Together, these groups form an interlocking network of ‘dark money’ pop-up groups and other fiscally sponsored projects, all afloat in a half-billion-dollar ocean of cash,” states the report. “The real puppeteer, though, is Arabella Advisors, which has managed to largely conceal its role in coordinating so much of the professional Left’s infrastructure under a mask of ‘philanthropy.’”
Even before President Donald Trump first announced Kavanaugh as his official nominee, Demand Justice committed to spending about $5 million to oppose any eventual Trump nominee for the Supreme Court. The organization sought to raise $10 million in its first year.
Breitbart News reported that within less than one hour of Trump’s announcement that Kavanaugh was his nominee, Demand Justice had already put up the website stopkavanaugh.com, exclaiming: “We need to demand that the Senate defeat the Brett Kavanaugh nomination.”
The news media has routinely produced articles on Demand Justice protesters, with many pieces failing to inform readers that this is not a grassroots group but an organization spawned by professional organizers and tied to deep leftist funding.
Brian Fallon, the head of Demand Justice, served as press secretary for Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. The group’s digital team is headed by Gabrielle McCaffrey, who was a digital organizer for Clinton’s campaign.
In an interview with the New York Times, Fallon would not comment on the source of the group’s financing, but the newspaper noted that he was recently a featured speaker at the conference of the Democracy Alliance, a grouping of progressive donors.

Even retelling it, a writer is hard-pressed not to choke on barely digestible facts. Allow me to set them forth, then draw your own conclusions.
In December 2013, sitting Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, flew together on Air Force Two – to Communist China. By itself this is odd, but not unprecedented.
Ten days later, the younger Biden had a contract with a Chinese firm. That contract was to perform work which, by every appearance, the younger Biden was unqualified. Nevertheless, the deal was worth one billion dollars, later increased to 1.5 billion.
A billion dollars would buy the Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Marlins, or Toronto Maple Leaves. It would buy a country like The Solomon Islands, or five F-35 state-of-the-art fighters, or Queen Elizabeth’s Balmoral Castle. It is not small money.
Hunter Biden’s firm is controlled by Biden and a stepson of John Kerry. Kerry served as Secretary of State after Hillary Clinton. A third partner was nephew of organized crime boss Whitey Bulger, convicted in 2013.
Ukraine facts surrounding Joe and Hunter Biden are well-known. The elder Biden, as Vice President, went to Ukraine and threatened to withhold a billion dollars in aid if they did not fire a prosecutor who had his son’s Ukrainian company – a company on which he was a board member – under investigation. The firing occurred; money was released.
Add the latest. On Sunday, October 13, Hunter Biden resigned a board position with a Chinese company, from which he profited mightily – during his father’s vice presidency. The younger Biden announced he saw a conflict of interest with his father running for president.
In the interests of – fill in the blank – the younger Biden resigned from the profitable Communist Chinese company with considerable fanfare. Candidate Joe Biden announced he heard about it in the press. Take that one to the bank.
Since character is king, research is needed to understand the Biden clan, specifically Hunter Biden. Who is he? First, he was booted in February 2014 from Navy Reserves for cocaine use, according to the Wall Street Journal.
That raised eyebrows, even in the Biden fan club. That occurred three months after young Biden’s billion-dollar deal was inked with the Chinese company, and after that trip with his father to that country.
Within months, the younger Biden got another deal, this one with Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian company at the center of questions about his father’s curious conduct. Looking after your son is fine; doing it in this way, well, not so much.
What else do we know about the sought-after son of Joe Biden? According to a global news report, an April 2017 divorce was wrenching to his wife and family. Reported facts are arresting. Biden’s wife of 24 years “wept” in court, as offenses were chronicled.
They included spending “hundreds of thousands of dollars of marital funds,” on “drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, strip clubs and gifts for women with whom he had sexual relations,” then becoming lover of his recently deceased brother’s widow. Enough said.
We return to judgement of the elder Biden, what the weekend revelation means for Old Joe the presidential candidate – and for President Trump’s shaky impeachment inquiry. Mark Twain would, by this time, be howling.
Here are the implications of the resignation by young Biden. They are five.
First, this makes plain Joe and Hunter knew their behavior was unethical from the start. Why? If unethical to earn hundreds of thousands of dollars – or a billion – from a foreign company while your father is running for president, then it is surely so when he is vice president.
Second, since Hunter and Joe traveled together to China when Joe was Vice President and ten days later young Hunter’s ship came in, an inference is unavoidable: Joe allowed his son to profit from a view that the older was influenced by the younger. That is, of course, patently unethical.
Third, the son’s resignation confirms the father’s poor judgement. Why? Because helping his son win business in Communist China makes more likely his corrupt intentions in Ukraine, interceding to get a prosecutor fired who was investigating his son.
Fourth, and most significantly, this gives the lie to the Trump impeachment. Admitting a conflict of interest in China, odds spike that Joe Biden was involved in public corruption in Ukraine.
That justifies asking facts supporting a Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violation by a former government official, even a vice president – even a candidate. If a president or AG does not have that authority, presidential candidates become free from investigation for past criminality – by announcing.
Perhaps the biggest impact of young Biden’s resignation is that average Americans – Democrat and Republican – now understand the Biden campaign is in a tailspin. Truth eventually outs. The case for impeaching President Trump now falters.
Mark Twain is famous for lots of reasons. One is quotes like this one: “If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.” Joe Biden might have read ore Twain.
The situation we find ourselves in today, is certainly a vast spiderweb of issues, however, the most pressing is deduced to the hatred where the haters hate each other and it is in this evil hate that we see the extreme evil that has been perpetrated against the citizens of the United States. Nonetheless, evil is a very powerful ally in our stand for nationalism and freedom. Ah, yes, evil wrought by Satan himself, as he dances among the people of a Christian nation. The United States was not the only Christian nation, however, its founding, and Constitution were rooted in Christianity and the Christian moral values, and integrity of the Protestant Christian, seeking freedom from religious persecution. The tyranny of the Kings and Queens of western Europe, oppressing the protestants. Therefore, there has been a war waged against God’s free people, a free nation which was plagued with evil even before we started. Slavery, inequality of women and common folks, greed, and power. Nearly the same thing in religion, race, women’s equality, greed and power. And about the time that Andrew Jackson ran a second time for office and formed the Democratic party from the Democrat-Republican party because the Whig Party was strong enough to have the Democrat-Republican split the vote in Congress where the President was elected at that time.
But it was during that time that evil really got moving strong among the voting class or congress, evil with a capital ‘E’ has been working against our free nation ever since. Corruption in the hearts of men (and women) has been separating and dividing, isolating the weak, devouring the mind and hearts of the people stripping them of self-esteem; turning morals and integrity into a negative trait to the delusional mind controlled by evil.
Where the rubber meets the highway, evil is the single cause of all that is wrong with us today. there is not an issue today that cannot be equated to evil, and the ruler of the darkness of this age. The darkness of this age began with Satan’s weaponizing the ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ and for some time now man has character has been eaten away by the Seven Deadly sins, sins that are part of our human nature, indulging in sin not only destroys our relationship with the Lord, but with each other, and in our darkness we turn on each other.
Like a pack of ravaged starving wolfs will turn on each other, weakest first. The sins are”…
In Prov. 6:16-19, “ there are things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him:
Haughty eyes, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, A false witness who pours out lies, and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.”
The seven deadly sins commonly referred to at this point in time, are: Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, Pride. & Lust.
“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods, and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.” By Thomas Paine, December 23, 1776, The Crisis.
Today, we are not faced with the same crisis, although, we are fighting a battle for the freedom of our people. In 1776 General Washington and his citizen army was fighting for the fledgling nation’s freedom from a tyrant monarchy, freedom and constitutional sovereign Republic. Today, we fight, not with lead ball, at least so far; nonetheless, there is plenty of violence during the protests and various liberal groups. However, our fight today is motivated by the same thing, the same freedom, and the security of our sovereign Republic against the socialists to make us a socialist union.
Eph. 6:12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
Evil, yes there is evil everywhere under the sun, and we tend to not pay attention to its progression; for in order to notice and pay attention it has to come near the surface from time to time, or outright exposed. Exposure of the evil only happens when God the Holy Spirit alerts the Christian to the evil by way of our values, principles, which God instilled in us and in our nation’s founders, our Constitution. It has always been there, right from wrong, good from evil.
Our nation didn’t need any special “civil liberties” laws to become breeding lots for racist violent hatred and division. The Constitution and the Bible would have been just fine. It would have gotten rid of the Jim Crow laws, held people accountable for their ideologies. Didn’t need a separate law to rid the country of the curse of evil slavery, that was being done before Lincoln became president. Guess the politicians should have just stayed with protecting the Constitution, the citizenry, our sovereign freedoms, all the train-wrecks along the way would have been sorted out without all the hatred and discord.
It is amazing how Americans of all colors and persuasion, come together and help one another in a time of emergency and need, yes once upon a time, the average Americans looked out for one another, but as evil progressed we lost a lot of our national integrity, our values, our Christian faith and our Christian responsibility to our fellow man. There is a great evil power breaking lose in our nation, an evil global socialism. Over the past four decades or more it has been swimming close to the surface being exposed from time to time. However, with the election of President Trump, evil knew it would be exposed more so than with Obama’s foolish attempt to complete the evil conspiracy to make this, our beloved Republic of the United States, the center of the North American Socialist Union, surrendering our Constitution to the Global Socialist Union, The United Nations.
President Trump became the object of evil hatred from socialists and progressive Republicans, and he has exposed evil and corruption in every nook and cranny, or should I say that the evil has exposed itself and to an unexpected degree through the manufactured hate for President Trump, it has involved all the vile evil groups that the socialists have been enlisting for scores of decades. I don’t have to numerate them all, but the leader has been socialism disguised as liberalism, and the Democrat Party. Who reached out to them for votes and loyalty, what they got was exactly what they wanted as they reached out to a generation who simply wanted acceptance or notoriety, perhaps those that have brought them into the fold, have shown them something they longed for and had not received, with the war against the church, most of the young people failed to find the unconditional love and acceptance of Jesus. That experience could have shined a totally different light on the darkness that was reaching out to them.
Could it be, that these misguided young people who are displaying such disgusting vile and radical behavior as they portray such evil hatred for our President, our nation, and now the supporters of Trump are not totally heartfelt in what they represent? Absolutely, it shows in their uninformed and deceptive rantings; they could not be as dumb as they sound, or could they? As far fetched as it may seem, they might be with the public educations they receive now, unless they were home-schooled, or private faith-based schooling, here not only do they learn required curriculum, but they learn values, integrity, responsibility and consequences of bad choices. They learn right from wrong, they learn about godly character, and patriotism and American History the good and bad of it, civic responsibility mutual respect, curriculum and essential social skills that will give a solid foundation to their lives. Unlike public education that has became no more than a propaganda mill and brain washing institution, oh our higher education does provide excellent academics and scientists, bankers, and candlestick makers. But with an evil socialist soul; amoral with no guidance in life except what evil has in store.
There is a host of psychological problems that cause our young people to seek acceptance in all the wrong places. However, what is done to such a large number of young people for five generations, hopefully will not take five generations to fix. I know Jesus can do it in a blink of an eye, but the subject must first own their sinfulness, and see the need to be accepted by the only one who really counts. His acceptance is unconditional, cannot be bought, or earned with good works, it is entirely free – except it will cost you your old life in exchange for a new one.
When God created mankind, he created us a spiritual being, and where He tells us about evil in heavenly place, He is not telling about the throne-room of God, but He is telling us about the invisible world about us called the supernatural. We are not humans going through a spiritual experience, what we are, is spiritual beings going through the human experience. And as such we all experience a war, a war between God and Satan – good and evil, sin and righteousness.
The sin of hate, divisions, lying, sexual perversions, fornication, adultery, anger, murder, all empower evil, give evil a extraordinary over God’s creation. Through the natural desires of our human nature, and one of the strongest from infancy, is love and acceptance with the parents and siblings as being part of the family. Christianity builds and instills that love within the family, but for five generations evil and darkness in high places, has waged an unsuspecting war on the families sending in greed, lust, putting both parents to work just to keep up. Divorce is over half of Christian marriages while children are still young, our children are suckered into all sorts of groups where they are accepted.
Christians and patriots are now being called to action. God will enable the willing to stand firm and return to the absolute truth of our living God, The Bible, the Word of God. We are the caretakers of this land that God gave our founders and immigrant Christian forefathers. Could it be, that God is getting ready to show the world once more that this is a Christian nation? Could be, yes we have messed it up enough falling to evil.
This is a Re-Post from AMAC, and a great Political and anti-Socialism author: Trevor Loudon.
No one is safe. The DSA and its pro-China allies, the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) and Liberation Road (formerly Freedom Road Socialist Organization, or FRSO), are targeting dozens of seats currently held by Republicans, moderate Democrats, and even by insufficiently Marxist members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Most will not make it past the primaries, but some have at least a reasonable chance of being elected.
Here are four serious far-left contenders who could be reinforcing “The Squad” in January 2021.
Cori Bush is targeting Missouri’s 1st Congressional District, which encompasses St. Louis, Florissant, and Ferguson. Her Democratic primary opponent is William Lacy Clay Jr., a veteran of both the Congressional Progressive Caucus and the Congressional Black Caucus, who has represented the district since 2001, succeeding his father William Lacy Clay Sr. In 2018, Bush stood against Clay Jr., losing by about 20 percentage points.
A native of St. Louis, Bush is a registered nurse, an ordained pastor, an activist, and a “community organizer.” She first came to prominence during the Ferguson anti-police protests of 2014, where she played a significant, if largely covert, role.
During a BlogTalkRadio show broadcast in August 2015, Bush was reporting “on the ground” as she described the scene days after “shots rang out” in Ferguson: “I’m right on the ground. I’m right here in the middle of it, so there’s chanting behind me. As a matter of fact, I was riding in a car … circling the neighborhood with flags and with our masks on.”
Prominent in the activist community, Bush was a recipient of the 2015 “Woman of Courage” Award from the Emmett Till Legacy Foundation and the 2016 Delux Magazine “Power 100” Award, according to her website. She was named one of the ‘Top 50 Women of St. Louis” by Gazelle Magazine, and an “Unsung Human Rights Hero” by the St. Louis Coalition for Human Rights in 2017. She also received the 2018 “Community Activist” award from the Missouri Association of Black Ministers. In 2017, she was elected the first vice-chairperson of the Missouri Democratic Party Progressive Caucus.
District 1 is heavily Democratic, so if Bush can manage to beat Clay Jr., she will almost certainly win the seat.
Working in her favor is her close connection to two of Missouri’s most influential Marxist groups: St. Louis DSA and the local CPUSA. These groups can muster nearly 1,000 activists and have already elected many local officials, including several state representatives. Early this year, St. Louis Communist Party leader Tony Pecinovsky (supported by Bush and running as a Democrat) lost a race for St. Louis Board of Aldermen Ward 14 with a respectable 48 percent of the vote.
Bush is a regular at the local Communist Party HQ—the St. Louis Workers Educational Society. During her 2018 campaign, Bush celebrated her birthday at an event in St Louis. Guest speakers included DSA member Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
In July 2017, Bush joined a Sit-In to Save Health Care at Republican Sen. Roy Blunt’s office in Clayton, Missouri. Bush was joined by members of the St. Louis DSA, Socialist Alternative, and the St. Louis Workers’ Education Society.
Bush already has the endorsement of Justice Democrats—famous for selecting and electing Ocasio-Cortez in 2016.
Albert Lee is targeting Oregon’s 3rd Congressional District, which encompasses all of deep blue Portland. The very safe Democrat district has been held since 1996 by Earl Blumenauer, a long-time member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Blumenauer beat his last Republican opponent 73 percent to 20 percent, so if Lee can win the primary, he’s almost guaranteed a seat in Congress.
Lee is currently the Dean for Business and Computing at the Sylvania Campus of Portland Community College.
He is active in TriMet’s Transit Equity Advisory Committee, the City of Portland’s Citizen Review Committee, the executive board of the Giving Tree NW, Health Care for All Oregon, the NAACP, Korean American Coalition of Oregon, and the Democratic Party of Oregon. He is a member of Portland DSA and the DSA front BerniePDX/Our Revolution, and on the board of directors of the far-left Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon—all groups with considerable electoral experience.
Currently, Lee is seeking Portland DSA’s endorsement. If he gets both local and national DSA endorsement, Lee will have an army of small donors and several hundred free doorknockers and phone-bankers on his team.
While the incumbent Blumenauer has ties to some DSA veterans, that may not do him much good. The DSA is likely to throw the old Jewish white “progressive” under the bus in favor of the young Korean/black socialist.
Lee is supporting Paige Kreisman in her run for Oregon Assembly District 42. Kreisman is a self-proclaimed Marxist-Leninist and member of both the DSA and CPUSA.
Lee is also supporting Doyle Canning, who is running for Congress in Oregon’s 4th District against Congressional Progressive Caucus co-founder Peter DeFazio. Canning has long been associated with FRSO/Liberation Road activists.
Mike Siegel is contesting Texas’s 10th Congressional District, which stretches from just north of Austin almost to Houston, against incumbent Republican Michael McCaul. In 2018, Siegel lost to McCaul by only four points in what is normally a safe Republican district, so the second time around, he may be even more of a threat.
Siegel is an assistant city attorney in Austin. He has worked as a public school teacher with Teach for America and co-founded two nonprofit education organizations.
Siegel’s far-left credentials are impeccable. He’s the son of Oakland, California-based activist/attorney Dan Siegel, once the West Coast leader of the Communist Workers Party, a group known for its blind loyalty to China and North Korea.
At Cornell University, Mike Siegel was president of the far-left National Lawyers Guild student chapter. He also served as an intern at the equally radical Center for Constitutional Rights, researching issues such as civil liability for military contractors. He also worked as legal coordinator for the “Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan” conference presented by the FRSO front group Iraq Veterans Against the War.
In 2018, Mike Siegel was heavily supported by several DSA-controlled groups including Our Revolution–Central Texas, Left Up to US, and Texas Alliance for Retired Americans. Austin DSA membership coordinator Jacob Aronowitz also served on Mike Siegel’s 2018 staff.
By July 2019, the Siegel campaign had garnered a number of key national and local endorsements, such as: far-left California congressman Ted Lieu; DSA front organization Progressive Democrats of America; International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers; National Union of Healthcare Workers; and leftist Mike Floyd of the Pearland ISD school board.
Austin DSA and neighboring Williamson County DSA can muster over 1,000 members between them. Austin DSA is currently supporting one of its own comrades, Heidi Sloan, against Republican Roger Williams in District 25. However, they will almost certainly support Siegel as well if they think he has any chance of defeating McCaul.
Eva Putzova is contesting the Democratic primary in Arizona’s District 1, which encompasses all of the northern and eastern part of the state. Her opponent is incumbent “moderate” Democrat Tom O’Halleran, who in 2018 defeated his Republican opponent by about 8 points.
Putzova, a Slovakian immigrant, has been very active in public life in Flagstaff. She was elected to the Flagstaff City Council in November 2014 to a four-year term. She also served on the Board of Directors of Flagstaff Arts Council, the Audit Committee, the Economic Collaborative of Northern Arizona, and the Northern Arizona Intergovernmental Public Transportation Authority.
In 2016, she led a successful local citizen initiative, “raising Flagstaff’s minimum wage to $15 by 2021, implementing one fair wage by 2026, and establishing local labor standards enforcement,” according to her former councilmember bio.
Putzova was also a “board member of Friends of Flagstaff’s Future—a multi-issue organization that advocates for a socially and environmentally just Flagstaff.” She has also “contributed to the goals of local commissions and committees, including the Regional Plan Citizen Advisory Committee, Coconino Community College Citizen Review Panel, Citizen Review Commission for Flagstaff Regional Five-Year and Long-Range Transit Plan, and the Greater Flagstaff Economic Council.”
Currently, Putzova works as the director of communications for Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, a far-left labor organization with ties to FRSO/Liberation Road.
For several years, Putzova has been active in the Flagstaff branch of Progressive Democrats of America, a national organization closely affiliated with the DSA. The national organization is supporting Putzova, one of their earliest endorsements of the 2020 election cycle. She is also close to Our Revolution—Flagstaff Progressives, which on a national scale is also heavily dominated by DSA members.
Putzova is also very close to Flagstaff DSA, which will likely support her in her upcoming battles with O’Halleran and any Republican challenger.
While many U.S. voters have been shocked by the antics of “The Squad” and the Democrats’ increasingly obvious shift to the hard left—we ain’t seen nothing yet.
The Democrats have been edging left since the 1960s. The socialist shift accelerated dramatically under President Barack Obama and went into overdrive with the Bernie Sanders campaign of 2016.
Currently, the DSA, CPUSA, and FRSO/Liberation Road are contesting for ground in the Democratic Party at every level, from county commissions and education boards to the House of Representatives and even the U.S. Senate. It’s only a matter of time until they completely dominate a once-great political party.
Whether Bush, Lee, Siegel, and Putzova win or not in 2020 is largely immaterial. There are hundreds more like them standing in line, waiting for their shot.
The Trump administration and the Republican Party are right to campaign against socialism and communism in 2020. Only by waking up millions of U.S. voters to the imminent Marxist threat can we have any hope of saving this great republic.

Progressives, under the guise of Social Democrats and, now, the mainstream Democrat Party, have fully embraced the concept of depopulation, but they’re no longer targeting people of color, certain ethnicities or sexual orientation. The bull’s eye is boldly painted on the back (because cowards won’t face their adversary) of anyone who still believes in God, family and country.
Citing every eccentric theory that pits Man against nature, pious social justice armies have turned against themselves in their zeal to rid the nation and the planet of their enemy. It’s not just the craven masked mobs roaming the streets of Portland, Oregon and D.C. assaulting unarmed bystanders with cement-laden “milkshakes,” iron bars or planned acid balloon attacks.
Politicians, jurists, educators and bureaucrats have instituted legislation, curricula and regulations inducing fear of overpopulation
Self-righteous leftists settled in for the long haul, committing decades to infiltrate public schools, government, media and religious institutions. Over time, they’ve engineered dramatic revisions of history in each of these domains to reflect their altered view of the world.
Employing every device possible, politicians, jurists, educators and bureaucrats have instituted legislation, curricula and regulations inducing fear of overpopulation—that the environment can’t sustain the current number of human bodies, methane-excreting animals, cultivated crops or mined resources. The last two generations have been browbeaten with anxiety that their predecessors have bequeathed them a beleaguered earth and they are tasked with its rescue from… who? Themselves, of course.
How are these despairing youngsters to accomplish the impossible?
Lucky for them, grizzled hipsters from the sixties successfully indoctrinated them with the simple solution: reduce the population. Which begs the next question. How? Looks like the old socialists had that covered, too.
I. Remove all moral standards
Remove all moral standards. This is the first imperative to instituting depopulation. Without a moral code anything goes and, now, it does.
By teaching children as young as preschoolers that their sex is up for debate, that they can decide if they are boys, girls, a mixture or none of the above, confusion about their identity and, eventually, about procreation is deeply seated in their psyches. Promoting the idea that consorting with others of the same sex or going to the extreme of changing their sex to something else creates individuals less likely to reproduce. As children grow older, add to the coached sexual confusion the idea that physical gratification is paramount, then disdain for the reproductive process follows.
To forward the agenda, states are addressing aspects of sex education and how to deal with resulting unwanted pregnancies, calling both “choice.” Colorado has passed legislation compelling public schools to teach LGBT ideology while forbidding discussions about religious perspectives on sex that encourage abstinence and traditional marriage. Christian schools like one in Maryland are being cut off from receiving voucher funds because they teach biblical perspectives on sexuality.
Dealing with unwanted pregnancies that may occur due to these sex education models, New York and Vermont have legalized “abortion” after delivery, otherwise identified as infanticide, while other states contemplate similar bills.
Either side of the curriculum furthers the agenda of seriously lessening the number of humans and states like Maine are adding laws that encourage individuals to take their own lives. Oregon passed assisted suicide years ago and, in 2018, added assisted murder for Alzheimers, severely physically debilitated and mentally deficient patients by allowing legal guardians to withhold food and water.
II. Manufacturing environmental crises
Manufacturing environmental crises. Re-zoning to displace whole populations, curtail housing and agriculture allow health disasters to occur.
Efforts to decrease numbers and concentrate Americans into high-density population centers (as opposed to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ illegitimate claim that illegals are imprisoned in “concentration camps”) are wending their way through California’s legislature. One overreaching bill imposes state control over residential zoning, stripping power from municipalities and counties to decide the make-up of housing developments, essentially pulling the plug on the American Dream of owning a single-family home.
Urban planning stresses depopulating countryside, limiting agriculture (which restricts food production, encouraging scarcity and high food prices) and cordoning off uninhabited wilderness where citizens pay a fee to visit the beauty of nature—if there is still road access. Using environmentalism for cover, farms are languishing as irrigation is blocked (e.g. California’s San Joaquin Valley), ranches are dying as grazing is fenced off across the West, and mining and logging are prevented by government agencies (BLM, EPA, USFS, etc.) diminishing access to building materials and resources for affordable power generation (coal, natural gas, oil, etc.).
Related tactics to reduce our native-born population are taking hold as democrats do all in their power to leave the borders wide open, inviting seriously ill migrants to enter the country, including individuals from Ebola-stricken Congo. A recent report demonstrated how caravans traveling north are now including “exotic” nationals and “extra-continentals” from Africa and Asia crossing from Colombia into Panama, many showing signs of unidentified skin ailments and other diseases.
Is it the left’s intent to introduce infectious and fatal epidemics that will severely affect America’s generally healthy citizenry?
III. Importing an underclass
Importing an underclass. This aspect of depopulation by displacing citizens with foreign peoples is two-fold and has a basis in history.
As a method of control that was documented by ancient historians, supported by biblical passages, Assyrian kings such as Tiglath Pileser III forced the removal of whole regional populations from their native lands to unfamiliar environs a thousand miles distant, keeping the exiled people in a state of flux, discomfort and fear. 2 Kings 17 describes the relocation of the Cuthah, Ava, Hamath and Sepharvaim from Babylon to Samaria where they replaced the population of Israel that was marched to Assyria. The Books of Daniel and Ezekiel are the tales of a people in captivity, some who eventually returned to their homeland and most who never did, forming a dispossessed underclass wherever they settled over the following millennia.
The strategy works. Examine how illegal immigrants entering the United States complain about “living in the shadows” as outcasts. Government welfare, education and healthcare dispensed to the “undocumented” cements their subjection to authority while their self-appointed, liberal-funded spokesmen rail against the system that coddles them. Despite their crying “unfair,” they submit to the control by never crossing the political line that keeps them subjects, including voting illegally to stay in bondage to government handouts. They forget that handouts don’t have strings, they’re attached to nooses.
Within these oppressive ideologies lurk self-destructive death cults. From the West’s upswing in suicide among rudderless youth suspended in a social order devoid of faith, to a spate of muslim mothers putting their children in harm’s way, encouraging suicide, murder and reckless behavior. Examples are prolific as in supporting Hamas closing schools in Gaza and scurrying their youngsters off to participate in violent riots which could result in maiming or a martyred death.
IV Sustaining an underclass
Cities under the leadership of liberal officials, most all democrats, have suffered like no other municipalities and counties across the nation. Economic depression ushered in during the previous presidential administration, along with platitudes that America’s days of productivity and invention were over, instigated a loss of jobs, property and optimism that has beset the largest cities in America.
New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle are strewn with miles of tent cities that their elected officials welcome, wringing hands and shedding crocodile tears about the tens of thousands of displaced, diseased, mentally disabled, drugged-up or indolent individuals occupying the sidewalks. Instead of working to solve the problem, the progressive administrations are happily funding poop patrols, used needle disposal, rat and vermin extermination and negotiations over “property rights.”
In Los Angeles, pestilence has broken out along Skid Row carried by rats that have infested LAPD’s Central Division where two employees have contracted typhoid fever. Open sewage, rotting garbage and filth now pose health hazards to service employees, first responders, business operators and the growing homeless population that city administrators, with shrugged shoulders, accept as inevitable.
The purpose of these depopulation schemes that are riddled with malice toward innocent lives and human productivity is confounding average Americans.
Civil society is under attack by liberal financiers influencing elected and bureaucratic officials intentionally reducing access to food, water, medical treatment and uncensored information, restricting healthy family relations and teaching faith in God.
Educational design has curtailed understanding of our founding documents, raising generations of Americans who would willingly do away with them, believing that life is pointless and, thus, valueless and expendable. They’ve been groomed to conclude these documents promise the opposite of their original intent of “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” because these attributes of human aspiration have been redefined as something ugly and selfish.
Scaling down human numbers through the tactics described makes for a more pliable and controllable population that sustain the opulent lifestyles of those orchestrating the demise of our social order. As much as the conclusion sounds off-the-wall and conspiratorial, efforts to depopulate the world are evident and those who don’t investigate or challenge the information delivered by media, educators, government and misguided ministries are complicit.
Finally, it must be stressed how the progressive game plan to depopulate the planet directly contradicts God’s Word. They say the planet is straining under overpopulation and humanity’s billions must be decreased; that mother earth simply can’t sustain all those needy lives.
That is patently untrue.
God said: Genesis 1:27 –
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. 31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
And it was repeated in Genesis 9:1 – And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth‚Ä¶ 7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.
The earth was meant to feed and prosper all humanity. That’s why Man was directed and empowered to cultivate it—collect seed, plow, sow and harvest its wealth.
The lie that Man has power to destroy the earth has been planted among the last few generations to promote compliance to decrease their own numbers. They and subsequent shrinking populations then become easier to control. Powerful patrons turn aside anger by firing-up resistance to the “status quo” that, in return, quells rebellion against the politicians and affluent funders who’ve essentially reduced the self-ordained anarchists to reactive “masses,” as Karl Marx labeled them.
The United States was established to offer every citizen an opportunity to equally pursue God’s riches according to their desires to succeed. Equality is not a promise that everyone owns equivalent property, or that wealth is distributed “fairly,” a favorite word of progressivism.
This nation came into being to protect individuals from subjugation by elitist overlords that, 243 years ago, were embodied by King George and the British nobility who mercilessly taxed the Colonies. Consider that the rate of taxation levied by the British government which inspired the Boston Tea Party was a fraction of what individuals pay in the 21st Century. The word that describes what our founders rejected is feudalism. Today it’s called socialism.
Anyone else see a problem here?
