Taxes are supposed to help the government function. Our Constitution has what is referred to as the General Welfare clause, and if anyone knew the reasoning behind this mention in the Preamble, they would understand that taxation in our federal system is out of control and is not functioning the way our Founding Fathers intended.
At one point during the Constitutional Convention, the old statesman, Benjamin Franklin, proposed a tax for the general government (federal) for “a power to provide for cutting canals where deemed necessary.” The reasoning for this was sound enough. Canals in those days were used to move merchandise off of ships that sailed to port and to distribute them throughout each city, town, or otherwise.
Luckily for us, Roger Sherman objected, saying, “The expence [sic] in such cases will fall on the U. States, and the benefit accrue to the places where the canals may be cut.”
In other words, Sherman argued that the entire people of the United States would have to pay a tax that only the people who benefitted from it would be those who used the canals. This sparked a firestorm of debates in the Convention and later among the delegates of the States during the ratification. The end result was to adopt the idea that any bill that comes to be Constitutionally voted upon that needed funding, the prerequisite would be that in order to create the tax to fund the program, everyone who has to pay the tax must also reap a benefit from the program they are paying taxes to fund. Do you feel you’re getting your money’s worth today? Do you think the DC swamp is adhering to the General Welfare principles? Heck, most progressive politicians today believe the General Welfare clause give them license to tax the hell out of us to provide welfare benefits to those in need.
Wall Street has been jumping for joy over the election results, believing that the since the dreaded blue wave fizzled into a blue puddle, it meant that Democrats would not propose huge tax increases that the Biden campaign promised to bring them, with everything going back to the miserable days before Donald Trump. While the GOP has so far retained control of the US Senate, the two runoff races in Georgia aside, most believe the GOP will retain control.
While control of the Senate will not be decided until the January 5 runoff elections in Georgia, most onlookers believe that it’s not likely that the two Democratic challengers will win and tip control of the Senate to the Democrats. Well, maybe those folks have too much faith believing that Democrats haver a morality that will preclude them from cheating the way they did so massively in the general election. We’ll see.
If the Republicans continue to control the Senate, the chances of tax increases by, God forbid, a Biden administration, would be very unlikely.
The problem we now face are even if the Republican maintain control of the Senate with just 2 votes to give them the majority, this would make some RINOs very important to the cause of freedom and liberty. I’m talking about Mitt Romney and Susan Collins. If just those two turncoats vote with Democrats to increase taxes on the proverbial rich, and we all know that really means everyone, then it goes to a 50-50 tie and ties under a Biden administration would go to a Vice President Kamala Harris whose senate voting record makes her the most radical progressive ever to hold a seat in that chamber, more so than even Bernie Sanders.
A Biden administration could be anticipated to move rapidly to suggest a major fiscal stimulus package deal and to use budget reconciliation to expedite its passage through the House and Senate. Budget reconciliation is a budget process method that would enable the Biden plan to avoid a Republican filibuster, limit debate in the Senate to a mere twenty hours, and pass the Senate with only 51 votes.
Biden is a slime ball, and though he doesn’t have the cognitive ability to do much of anything complicated these days, as if he ever did, the people who would really be running things will be clever enough to reshape an ugly tax hike package to be acceptable enough for at least two Republican senators. Think about it. A stimulus package could ask for trillion of dollars to spend on coronavirus relief for small businesses and people who are unemployed. They would bail out failing cities and states run into the ground by progressive policies and you, the taxpayer, would be on the hook to pay for it all. Rather than take the Trump approach which is the strengthen the private sector by getting the government off the people’s backs and allowing ordinary people to do extraordinary things, a Biden administration would create policies to make as many Americans dependent on the federal government as possible.
They would add things like child tax credits and child and dependent care tax credits, and other various tax credits that may seem like a windfall for some people, but the strings attached to that spending would be enormous.
A Biden administration would crush the achievements of President Trump and America would quickly no longer be great. A Biden tax plan could be pushed through with the age-old class warfare attack of only raising taxes on corporations and the rich, thus sending the message that you don’t want to start a business and/or get rich, because you’re evil and you shall be punished. It’s maddening. They could also raise the top rates for the corporate tax and go back to the days of Bill Clinton for individual taxes to say 39%. Do you want to pay 39% of your hard-earned money to a Biden administration?
Wait until they start to mention a wealth tax where they will tax money you earned that has already been taxed and is sitting in an account somewhere accruing interest. That’s outright theft, but a Romney and Collins could bring that to you. It wouldn’t hurt them, because like the days of old Democrat politics, they would probably be exempt from the same laws that would harm everyone else. That’s how the game used to be played before Trump came along and reset the playing field to be more fair.
Speaking of unfairness, a Biden administration would go back to allowing progressive states like California, Illinois and New York, with very high tax rates to pay for all the progressive government handout programs, to let their rich progressive friends write off their high state taxes on their federal returns, thus forcing the middle and lower classes in other states to subsidize them by paying their share of taxes for them, something the Trump administration did away with. So much for the rich paying their fair share.
It could also include provisions Biden called for during the campaign, such as a new corporate minimum tax and the repeal of tax provisions used by real estate investors.
In short, the kinds of tax structure changes the Biden campaign talked about would again make it impossible for many corporations to function inside the United States and would have them leave the country and go to places like China, who have Joe Biden in their back pocket. We are just coming out of the forced lockdowns and tax increases now would slow investment, killing job creation and we would experience another economic malaise like what we went through with 8 years of Obama-Biden.
Think about it. If Republicans can hold onto the Senate majority, and curb the traitors to freedom and liberty within it, the economic catastrophe that awaits us could be avoided. Donate whatever you can to the David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler campaigns to help them beat the cheat that we know the Democrats are right now preparing. Donate like your future depends on it, because it really does.
All eyes are on Georgia as the fate of the free world lies in the two senate runoff elections coming to Georgia in January. I say this, because Democrats have already told us what they intend to do if they win the majority in the senate, and their plans would effectively end the republic as we know it.
If Republicans lose both senate runoff elections, that would make the senate split at 50-50. That means the vice president would split every tie vote. With that, the Democrats have threatened if, God forbid, Joe Biden gets in, they will get rid of the filibuster rule, so that Democrats could ram anything through that they want, making the minority party helpless to stop them. They would also pack the US Supreme court and federal district courts with leftists who like the current leftists on the court do not usually rule based on the Constitution, but on whatever the leftist ideology of the day happens to be. The Democrats have vowed to also bring Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C. in as new states giving the Democrats four more senators so that they would always have a majority. Folks, if they achieve these goals you can give your freedom good-bye.
Georgia’s top election official says that he is starting an investigation into whether third-party groups are trying to register people from other states to illegally vote in Georgia’s January 5 Senate runoff elections. You know the Democrats are going to repeat the cheat that they did in the November 3rd general election, the evidence of which I will mention below.
An analysis was done of voter data for the 2020 election in Georgia by the President of Data Productions, Inc. Mark Davis, considered an expert witness in court for at least five cases concerning election disputes, where with the help of his testimony four of those cases resulted in new elections being ordered while they are still waiting for a ruling on the fifth case. That fifth case is where Davis discovered double voting irregularities in the state’s primary election over the 2020 summer with his discovery resulting in an investigation by the Secretary of State’s office that revealed about 1,000 double votes in 120 counties.
Davis was asked to perform a National Change of Address (NCOA) study on the voter data from the November 3rd general election. In Georgia, the law stipulates that if a person moves from one to county to another county, they have 30 days to notify the state or else they cannot vote in either county, and of course if you move out of the state you can no longer vote in Georgia.
His study shows 312,971 people moved within the state of Georgia, and out of that the data shows 122,231 voters who moved across county lines. Of those, the data shows 40,279 people moved across county lines more than 30 days prior to the election and they voted in their old county of residence. That’s illegal. In all likelihood, the vast majority of those residency moves are not of a temporary nature.
Davis’ analysis of the data shows 267,255 people notified the USPS that they were moving to an address outside the state. He warns that some of those people will be students living out of state while in school and military folks overseas, both parties who intend to move back to the state, so therefore, they have the right to vote. Davis’ analysis discovered that 14,980 of those people, who moved out of the state, voted in the 2020 general election. That alone, if they came from Biden districts, would overcome Joe Biden’s lead of 12,000+ votes.
Suffice it to say Georgia has some serious residency problems, which begs the question, is the state going to protect the runoff elections so that unlike the recent general election, they are fair and free?
On Monday, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced “we have opened an investigation into a group called America Votes, who is sending absentee ballot applications to people at addresses where they have not lived since 1994.”
Raffensperger, barely a Republican, also said his investigators are looking into “Vote Forward, who attempted to register a dead Alabama voter, a woman, to vote here in Georgia.” He also pointed to, “The New Georgia Project, who sent voter registration applications to New York City.”
Who is watching Stacey Abrams?
The secretary of state also pinpointed “Operation New Voter Registration Georgia, who is telling college students in Georgia that they can change their residency to Georgia and then change it back after the election.”
Raffensperger asserted that “voting in Georgia when you’re not a resident of Georgia is a felony. And encouraging college students to commit felonies without regard for what it might mean for them is despicable. These third-party groups have a responsibility not to encourage illegal voting. If they do so, they will be held responsible.”
Gabriel Sterling, the election official who manages Georgia’s voting system, told reporters that “this is new information, these outside groups attempting to register people illegally potentially, in other states.”
Sterling said that these third-party groups appear to be “literally saying ‘hey, it’s OK to commit a felony.’”
And Raffensperger emphasized that “this office will continue to take steps to protect the voting rights of the legally registered Georgians of this state, Republican, Democrat, independent, and whatever party you may be a member of.”
Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) has come under fire after she tweeted out support for small businesses that had been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, just months after she pushed for donations to bail rioters out of jail who looted and set fire to stores that were either damaged beyond repair or were burned to the ground.
“Small businesses, especially Black and minority-owned businesses, urgently need relief to survive the effects of coronavirus this winter. @JoeBiden and I are committed to helping these businesses during this pandemic and get them the support they need to thrive in years to come.”
But the American people never forget things like this. Harris’ tweet seemed to reach the height of gall coming from the woman who supported rioters over small businesses during the pandemonium, chaos and anarchy that ensued in the wake of the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. On June 1, 2020 the senator from California, who wants to be the next vice president, asked for donations to help support “protesters” bail bonds, even though hundreds of businesses were harmed by the rioting that took place. I do the dreaded quotes around protesters, because there were very few protesters who were arrested. Those arrested were committing crimes by either breaking into businesses and stealing merchandise or by smashing store windows and setting the buildings on fire.
Harris took to social media to plead for donations to let the criminal rioters and looters out of jail quickly so that they could get back on the streets and commit more crimes.
“If you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota.”
Just in the state of Minnesota, more than 360 businesses in the Twin Cities were victims of being vandalized, were looted, or had doors and windows broken in the wake of the protests.
Some buildings were reduced to rubble and rock piles, looking like they suffered through a war, and there were at least 66 businesses that were completely destroyed by fires set by the very people Kamala Harris was bailing out of jail, according to the Minnesota Star Tribune.
The protests, which Americans have the Constitutional right to engage in, were started over police brutality, but they were quickly taken over by Marxists and anarchists working together to cause riots and the looting of small businesses in a lot of major Democrat-run cities across the country.
Twitter users were not happy with Harris’ attempt to whitewash what she did. “@KamalaHarris
gave money to bail out the rioters who destroyed black owned businesses”
One user said it very succinctly.
“You bailed out looters who destroyed small businesses. Pick a lane.”
“Kamala already did pick her lane. Now she has to back pedal.”
“Maybe you shouldn’t have supported the ‘protests’ that destroyed so many, or supported bailing them out to do it all over again”
“Actually she’s for the rioters that burned down these small businesses she’s now claiming to support. Don’t forget keeping an innocent man on death row because she refused to till the courts forced her… yeah she did that too.”
“Maybe she can help the Caucasian small business owners get a job loading trucks at Amazon. She’s so sweet! I mean, after all, she was bailing out the looters”
One user didn’t mince words:
“That is the most vile, racist statement I’ve heard in a long time. Why are some businesses more worthy of support than others? If this is what the next four years are going to be like, this country is in big trouble.”
“The same businesses that were looted and destroyed during rioting? By the same people for which you helped raise the funding for their bail and legal costs? Hmmmm.”
“Can you just help Americans without color coding everything?”
After it was revealed that Iran’s head of its nuclear program, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, was killed on Friday, Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan had a temper tantrum criticizing what he referred to it as a “criminal” killing.
Responding to Fakhrizadeh’s death, Brennan, who always sides with our enemies over the US, was quick to take to social media and tweet out his judgment and disapproval.
“This was a criminal act & highly reckless. It risks lethal retaliation & a new round of regional conflict. Iranian leaders would be wise to wait for the return of responsible American leadership on the global stage & to resist the urge to respond against perceived culprits.”
Notice how he blames the Trump administration on instinct. This from a man who lied under oath about the CIA spying on the US Senate. Why he’s not in prison yet we’ll will never know.
People like John Brennan, who voted for a communist once, think that to bring peace all you need to do is float candles down a River while singing Kumbaya. Well, in the real world it doesn’t work that way. Since its inception the state of Israel has been surrounded by Muslim nations who hate them. It is inconceivable that the Obama administration even considered allowing Iran to have a nuclear bomb. Unlike other nuclear countries who use nuclear weapons as a deterrent to war, Iran tells us over and over again that they want to use them, first on Israel, the little Satan, and then on the United States, they big Satan.
Brennan, who is always defending Obama’s Iran nuclear deal, which actually allows the terror state to legally own a nuclear bomb in 15 years, also referred to the assassination as an act of state-sponsored terrorism which he claimed was “a flagrant violation of international law.”
How come Brennan never spoke that way about Iran, which is a state sponsor of terrorism?
Incidentally, the Iran nuclear deal that Brennan is so proud of was never signed by either side. The Iranians didn’t sign it and neither did we, so the deal itself is actually non binding. And that means it’s not an enforceable. Iran was violating the agreement when the ink that was never there was still wet. How the hell could the Obama administration tell the world that the Iran nuclear deal was a done deal when no one signed it? Everything about that in ministration was a bold faced lie. and how could Brennan stand up today and defend a state sponsor of terror when the nuclear deal wasn’t signed?
How everyone on the Left conveniently forgets. On November 19, 2015, the Obama/Kerry State Department sent a letter to then-Representative Mike Pompeo that undermines really undercuts the idea that the Iran deal represents any form of a binding American agreement. It turns out that the Obama administration not only acknowledged that the deal wasn’t a treaty, but it also admitted that it wasn’t “an executive agreement” or even a “signed document.”
Here are the key paragraphs:
“The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is not a treaty or an executive agreement, and is not a signed document. The JCPOA reflects political commitments between Iran, the P5+1 (the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia, China), and the European Union. As you know, the United States has a long-standing practice of addressing sensitive problems in negotiations that culminate in political commitments.
The success of the JCPOA will depend not on whether it is legally binding or signed, but rather on the extensive verification measures we have put in place, as well as Iran’s understanding that we have the capacity to re-impose — and ramp up — our sanctions if Iran does not meet its commitments.”
Brennan’s comments received an angry backlash:
Don Jr “In case anyone was wondering what side he’s really on at this point. It’s insane.”
“It’s bizarre to see a former head of the CIA consistently side with Iranian zealots who chant ‘Death to America’ and reflexively condemn Israel,” wrote Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). “Does Joe Biden agree?”
“Great question,” replied fellow Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX).
Brennan responded back to Cruz, referring to the senator as “unworthy to represent the good people of Texas.”
“Why is @JohnBrennan always on the side of our Enemies?” former senior adviser to President Trump Sebastian Gorka asked.
“John Brennan and the rest of the Democrat anti-semites can’t wait to start blaming Israel and coddling the number one state sponsor of terrorism, Iran”
J. Michael Waller, Senior Analyst for Strategy at the Center for Security Policy tweeted, “There goes John Brennan, advising the Iranian mullahs again.”
“That’s rich coming from a known traitor… actually, it’s EXACTLY what you expect from a known traitor.”
On Wednesday, the US Supreme Court blocked New York Governor Andrew Cuomo from reestablishing his draconian strict attendance caps at worship services in areas hit hard by the coronavirus.
The court ruled 5-4 to block Cuomo from enforcing his October 6 “Cluster Initiative” against churches and other houses of worship that sued to challenge his unamerican restrictions.
The ruling is the first in which Justice Amy Coney Barrett played a decisive role. Barrett, who was President Donald Trump’s third Supreme Court nominee, joined the court on October. 27, after being confirmed by the US Senate after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on September 18.
Meanwhile, it’s being reported that Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court’s liberal wing in the dissenting opinion, but I wish they would stop reporting on him that way, because John Roberts IS of the court’s liberal wing. The leftists on the court’s dissent was that the court had acted rashly. According to the Constitution, the New York Governor is the one who acted rashly.
In an Orwellian fashion, Cuomo’s plan created a color-coded system on the limits of large gatherings and on businesses, supposedly to help stop an outbreak in NYC where cases were allegedly surging.
His orders were aimed at worship services at some synagogues and Roman Catholic churches in parts of Brooklyn and Queens, according to Bloomberg.
In the red zones, deemed the hardest-hit areas, the state limited attendance in houses of worship down to only 25 percent of their lawful occupancy or 10 people, whichever is fewer. The majority of complaints said the governor’s limits violated the First Amendment’s protection of the free exercise of religion. And they are right.
Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote in the concurring opinion that Cuomo treated religious activities less favorably than nonreligious ones, according to the New York Times. That goes against the Equal Protection Clause of the US Constitution. And religion has Constitutional rights.
“It is time — past time — to make plain that, while the pandemic poses many grave challenges, there is no world in which the Constitution tolerates color-coded executive edicts that reopen liquor stores and bike shops but shutter churches, synagogues, and mosques,” wrote Gorsuch, who was also named to the court by Trump.
“So, at least according to the Governor, it may be unsafe to go to church, but it is always fine to pick up another bottle of wine, shop for a new bike, or spend the afternoon exploring your distal points and meridians,” he continued, according to a tweet from The Economist correspondent Steven Mazie. “Who knew public health would so perfectly align with secular convenience?”
The ruling was considered a reversal of earlier actions taken in the course of the pandemic this year by the Court in response to state restrictions on organized religion. The justices beforehand refused to lift restrictions on churches in California and Nevada.
In the dissenting opinion, Roberts explained why the court’s leftists opposed the decision.
“Numerical capacity limits of 10 and 25 people, depending on the applicable zone, do seem unduly restrictive,” Roberts wrote, according to the New York Times. “It is not necessary, however, for us to rule on that serious and difficult question at this time.”
“The governor might reinstate the restrictions,” he continued. “But he also might not. And it is a significant matter to override determinations made by public health officials concerning what is necessary for public safety in the midst of a deadly pandemic. If the governor does reinstate the numerical restrictions the applicants can return to this court, and we could act quickly on their renewed applications.”
President Trump took to social media to retweet the SCOTUSblog account that announced the high court’s ruling.
The American Criminal Liberties Union (ACLU) condemned the decision and warned it could “undermine New York’s efforts to curb the pandemic.”
“The freedom to worship is one of our most cherished fundamental rights, but it does not include a license to harm others or endanger public health,” said Daniel Mach, director of the ACLU Program of Freedom of Religion and Belief. Actually, the Constitution says about religion that the government may not “prohibit the free exercise thereof;” It’s literally in the First Amendment!
California Governor and tyrant Gavin Newsom (D) set a host of restrictions for the people of California over gathering for the Thanksgiving holiday, and now a utility company is threatening to cut off power, claiming it would be done to prevent fires due to dry conditions and high winds. If you believe that reason I have some wonderful beachfront property in Nevada I want to sell you.
Edison International might be cutting the power off to Southern California homes and businesses on Thanksgiving to “prevent fires.”
The forecast is calling for strong winds on Thursday and Friday and the utility company could resort to cutting power to prevent electrical lines from starting fires. Of course, that’s a load of bunk. It’s all part of the Democratic Party’s top-down conditioning of their citizens to conform to government rule over every aspect of their lives. Now not only are Californians not allowed to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with friends and loved ones, but they may be sitting at home alone with no power. It doesn’t get much more Orwellian than that period.
If the socialist government of Sacramento keeps up at this pace the people of California will soon go back to the horse and buggy.
“Edison International could cut power to some Southern California homes and businesses on Thanksgiving as strong winds are forecast to return to the rain-deprived region.
The utility owner hasn’t determined how many customers could be affected by the outages, intended to prevent power lines from sparking wildfires during the gusts. Power would likely be out until Friday evening, Southern California Edison spokeswoman Taelor Bakewell said. The state’s utilities have resorted to preemptively cutting power after electrical lines touched off a series of deadly blazes in recent years.
Critical fire weather conditions could develop Thursday afternoon through Saturday, according to a National Weather Service forecast. Although the annual rainy season has begun in Northern California and snows have returned to the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Southern California has remained largely dry. As a result, a record-breaking fire season that has already seen more than 4.2 million acres burned across the state this year could linger into December.”
Over 1.5 million went without power last Fall when Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) cut off their electricity in order to “prevent dangerous wildfires.”
Californians went through some rough hardships last year when they cut power over Gavin Newsome’s orders. Now you know why so many Californians are moving out and heading to states that don’t have these types of problems. A major problem with that is that it seems that the same dopey Californians who voted in ways that destroyed the once great state – i.e. for Democrats – are continuing to vote the same stupid way in their new home states where they fled the tyranny and incompetence. They don’t understand that they are the problem.
There’s just something wrong with the timing of this. I can pretty much guarantee you that Gavin Newsom will be enjoying a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with his family and friends, where there will be no mask wearing indoors and no social distancing, not unlike the birthday party he got caught attending last week where pictures surfaced of the governor sitting at a table with government types and big donors alike where no one was wearing a mask or social distancing.
So what has the socialism of the California government brought to the people of the state: a serious homeless problem where garbage, human feces, and needles are strewn about on the ground outside businesses, public parks and residential homes, power outages that remind Californians of why they recalled Governor Gray “Grayout” Davis and elected the Terminator. A lot of people don’t know this, but California is the richest and the poorest state in the country. Hollywood and other industries in California make it the richest in the nation, but then the cost of living, especially housing costs, devour middle class residents’ earnings to the point where many cannot afford to live there anymore.
Raphael Warnock, the Democratic candidate for US Senate in Georgia has for a long time railed against cash bail, which has been used since bail began to ensure that defendants released will show up for their hearing, as most of the time a family member or friend puts the money up, and the relationship between that person and the accused is usually enough. It’s such a radical idea that the Democratic Party didn’t include it in their platform until this year.
Opposing cash bail has become a mainstream idea in the Democratic Party, even Joe Biden supported it during the campaign, at least in those few moments when he popped his head out of his basement. I believe it’s a racial thing for Democrats. They play identity politics every chance they get, and I for one believe they think black people and the new term “people of color” (POC) get a raw deal when they have to put up cash bail amounts that they or their loved ones cannot afford. Therefore, Democrats believe cash bail is racist, because these days for leftist Democrats, anything that they don’t like is racist.
The 2020 Democratic Platform says about cash bail, “poverty is not a crime, and it should not be treated as one.”
Yeah, it’s ridiculous, but it’s one of those leftist phrases that has a lot of appeal. Of course, cash bail is not intended to be harder on people in poverty (which they really mean black and POC). It’s cash bail. It’s set for everyone. Perhaps instead of railing against the system of cash bail, they should argue against committing crimes that require cash bail if you’re a person without the means to put up bail.
Warnock used similar rhetoric back in 2018 in support of an ordinance passed in Atlanta that allowed people who were arrested for minor crimes to be let out of jail without having to pay any cash bail.
“A letter went out to the council members from an attorney representing the bondsman association reminding them that this system is as old as the country, as if that supports the rightness of the situation,” Warnock said to the Atlanta City Council when it was taking up the bail reform ordinance. “Slavery is as old as this country, and it is as wrong as it is old. And so I stand to say that I support this new ordinance. We ought to end money bail. We ought to end wealth-based detention.”
Slavery? Seriously? This clown is calling cash bail slavery? So, when white people can’t afford cash bail either, is this race-bating jackass saying that they are salves as well? Good God, this man has no sense of decency. To cheapen the horrors of slavery to radicalize our justice system is beyond the pale.
Warnock continued, “I’m hearing a lot of arguments today that are the opposite of what our Constitution represents. In the United States of America, at least on paper, you are innocent until proven guilty… The ability to pay your bond may only mean that you have a thriving drug business… We ought to stop separating people from their families just because they’re poor.”
This is outrageous. Warnock believes the justice system is separating families when a family member commits a crime. Who thinks like this? Certainly no other pastor I know of, outside of the blatant racist and America hater Jeremiah Wright.
Don’t forget that Kamala Harris and other Democrats donated large sums of money to Black Lives Matter bail funds to allow rioters to get out of jail the same day so that they could go back on the streets and riot some more. There were other people of human debris who supported the cash bail funds for rioters including celebrities like Steve Carell, Cynthia Nixon, and Seth Rogen. Of course, they say they were bailing out protesters who were arrested, but in the overwhelming cases protesters were not arrested, rioters and looters were.
Warnock continued to defend the policy months after it was passed even when the public started having regrets when it was reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that a 100% spike in criminals not appearing for their court dates became the norm. That’s the entire purpose of cash bail.
He argued to keep the ordinance: “Atlanta likes to tell a certain story about itself. Truth is, we don’t always live up to that story,” Warnock said in 2018. “We’ve made poverty a crime. We ought to call cash bail what [it] is: Wealth-based detention. Atlanta ought to be leading the way. Leave the ordinance in place.”
“People facing nonviolent misdemeanor charges who have not been convicted of a crime should not remain in jail simply because they can’t afford bail,” Warnock spokesperson Terrance Clark said in a statement. “Reverend Warnock has worked with the faith communities in Georgia on reforming that system and in the Senate, Reverend Warnock will continue to pursue policies that strengthen Georgia communities through criminal justice reform, including cash bail reform.”
Folks, Raphael Warnock is trying to win one of the runoff elections for US Senate in Georgia. State law requires that only people who voted in the original election may vote in a runoff election, yet the lunatic Stacey Abrams has been bragging that she has 750,000 never voter registrations for people to vote in the runoff elections. She is also asking people to move to Georgia, even temporarily, to register to vote for the runoff elections. In other words, the crazy moonbat who still thinks she’s the governor of Georgia, who has yet to concede the race since 2018, is actively asking Democrats to break the law.
In other words, the Democrats plan to cheat to get those two Senate seats the same way it is being alleged that they cheated to win the presidential election, and it would be a crime if they got away with it both figuratively and literally. Warnock is a dangerous kook, who like the Soros-backed district attorneys around the country, seeks to upend our justice system, and that affects everyone. Donate as much as you can to the Republicans to help them keep control of the Senate. Our very republic depends on it, and that’s not being hyperbolic.
Former President Barack Obama gave massive power to a fellow Community Organizer, Eric Holder, made him an Attorney General and continued on with his partner after Obama left office giving Holder great prestige in Organizing for America, Obama’s militant Community Organizing platform, to flip statehouses of legislative bodies from Republicans to Democrat.
Holder and Obama both push the narrative that Progressive grassroots are “bad to the bone” and a powerful American movement to bring about the “positive changes” that they want.
Holder and Obama were supposed to be the “golden boys” of political success, and they delivered less than a first-year college Community Organizer could have given the Democrat party, they were deeply involved in The National Democratic Redistricting Committee, which according to their site,” is the centralized hub for executing a comprehensive redistricting strategy that shifts the redistricting power, creating fair districts where Democrats can compete.”
So what happened to the two Community Organizers, who enjoyed what appeared to be historic popularity and support from American citizens since Obam’s days as a Senator? Why did their plans fail after so recently enjoying undying support from Americans?
Obama, in campaigning for Biden drew tiny little groups of people. It looked very strange.
The failure of the Community Organizers begs the question, was any of that support really real at all?
In his article, Democrats had a decade to consolidate power. They blew their chance,” Reid Wilson wrote:
“Leading up to Election Day, Democrats touted their chances of winning back key seats in Republican-held state legislatures around the country. Recapturing territory in states such as Texas, North Carolina and Pennsylvania could help the party lock in political power for a decade. If Democrats achieved this in enough districts, they could have averted their fate after the 2010 tea party wave.”
Yet Eric Holder appears to be unfazed by his total failure. His plans to Gerrymander fell flat, his promises broken. So much for the Community Organizer Kings, Obama and Holder.
But, Holder says, more is coming… perhaps he just needs another chance?
The brazen Eric Holder, former Attorney General and radical far left Community organizer, was on the mind of numerous election watchers:
Thomas Sowell wrote about Holder in his article, Voter Fraud and Voter I.D. :
“One of the biggest voter frauds may be the idea promoted by Attorney General Eric Holder and others that there is no voter fraud, that laws requiring voters to have a photo identification are just attempts to suppress black voting.
Reporter John Fund has written three books on voter fraud and a recent survey by Old Dominion University indicates that there are more than a million registered voters who are not citizens, and who therefore are not legally entitled to vote.
These were illegal votes for Democrats, which may well be why Eric Holder sees no evil, hears no evil and speaks no evil.
As for race-based “voter suppression,” amid all the political hysteria, how many hard facts have you heard? Probably none that supports that claim. Widely available free photo identification cards mean that poverty is no barrier to voting.
Holder was an unsuccessful leader who attempted to use racism as a foundation for a popular uprising, and he was a total failure in that.
Political commentator Larry Elder doesn’t like Holder’s tactics of using racism to organize people, which was his MO during the Obama years at Attorney General, and has called him out about numerous times over it:
Holder was a major stakeholder with Obama’s radical ideology for the United States, and he was giving massive resources and access. Yet he failed. Is it time yet for the Democrat party to reevaluate the Community Organizing tactics of the left?
Here is an example of Holder’s radical ideas, dressed up as Community Organizing:
In this video from 2018, Holder clearly identifies himself as a Community organizer as the Democrat national redistricting committee. His purpose was to “uplift black voices” and describes his plans for flipping state houses,beginning in Wisconsin.
“We are filing lawsuits in Wisconsin to empower people,” Holder said, talking his tactics to flip statehouses in a number of battleground areas, claiming he would use the power that was created to do so by the popularity of Obama’s presidency.
Wonder why that didn’t work.
Holder’s organizing attempts were a total failure, will they learn to change their tactics? Are the progressives really the most powerful movement in America? What do the 2020 elections tell you?
During a campaign rally for Joe Biden in Detroit on Saturday, music legend Stevie Wonder encouraged the crowd to vote for Biden because he would enact slavery reparations.
“I know Joe Biden will do it,” Wonder said. “Give us reparations.”
His statement brought cheers from the crowd and the supportive honks of car horns at the drive-in rally.
“For the work we’ve all done for the last four hundred years – unpaid,” he continued.
Neither Biden nor his running mate Kamala Harris have committed to reparations should they win the election, but they have voiced some openness to the idea.
In June, Biden said he would be in favor of reparations for African Americans and Native Americans if studies were to find the direct payments are feasible.
“If, in fact, there are way to get direct payments for reparations,” he said, “I want to see it.”
Harris has also expressed a willingness to explore the idea, but in 2019 while running for the Democratic presidential nomination, she stated that it has to be about more than writing checks:
“If we’re talking about writing a check, I don’t think it’s that simple. And frankly, I don’t support an idea or a notion that after all this, we’re going to say, ‘Okay, I’m going to write you a check, and then be quiet.’ Because that won’t solve the problem, which is the systemic issues that are present and will continue to exist, whether or not you write a check.”
In 2019, President Trump called the reparations debate “very interesting”, but stated, “I don’t see it happening, no.”
Democrats have introduced bills to the House to explore reparations proposals since 1989. New Jersey Senator Cory Booker co-sponsored a bill in 2019 that would have tasked a commission to study the feasibility of reparations. The bill has not gone anywhere since its introduction.
The reparations conversation has gained new ground after the death of George Floyd in May.
Wonder performed some of his famous hits at the rally, including “Superstition”, as well as his first new songs in 15 years.
One new song, “Can’t Put It in the Hands of Fate”, was inspired by a relationship, but Wonder told the crowd he now sees it in light of the election:
“And then I was thinking about where we are in the world and I was thinking…this craziness is unacceptable. We’re not going for it anymore. Change is right now. We can’t put it in the hands of fate….We can’t put voting in the hands of fate.”
