NO Blue (Police) Lynching!

by Nadra Enzi, Contributing Writer

Two sheriffs deputies were recently ambushed on the outskirts of besieged Baltimore and once again decent people are shocked. A nation where police officers are routinely ambushed is one aflame from internal friction.

This friction is cooled when everyday citizens and advocates refuse to let blue (police) lynching go unchallenged. Pro-police press conferences, marches, social media campaigns, acts of kindness and literal assistance during crisis tip the scales against ambushers and the blue lynching lobby.

A presidential election cycle tragically promises increased anti-cop rhetoric and violence to advance toxic political agendas. We, who fancy ourselves supporters of law enforcement, either allow blue lynching on our streets and in popular culture or we oppose it!

Silence in this battle emboldens solo thugs and gangs at home while empowering homegrown extremists and foreign terrorists.

Blue lynching has supreme public safety and homeland security consequences which we can’t afford to encourage.

It’s Only A Matter of Time, New Orleans

by Nadra Enzi, Contributing Writer

As my brothers and badges together advocacy gains ground with distant departments and forums, it underscores a divide with New Orleans mayor who cherry picks inner citizen spokespeople. My local law enforcement allies, individual officers, executives and the Police Association of New Orleans (PANO), have my support while I oppose this mayor’s anti-advocate, anti-police policies.

Recruitment and retention have been at crisis-level for years and violent criminals exploit our disadvantage. This place is a racial powder keg and its fuse is routinely lit for selfish political purposes.

Posing Black youth and inner city crime scenes for photo ops doesn’t obscure the fact that we’re one officer-involved shooting and politicized investigation away from rioting.

Ignoring independent Black male advocates who support police will cost lives of inner citizens and urban officers, a tragedy having brothers and badges together could avoid.

Sadly, I’m fully prepared to tell powers-that-be I told you so when the inevitable smoke clears.

A brew of gentrification stirred economic apartheid and sock puppet spokespeople is going to boil over and New Orleans will be spoken in the same breath as Ferguson, Baltimore, Watts and Los Angeles. It’s only a matter of time when independent advocates closest to the problem are ignored and police/community relations eventually erupt.

Why Not Satanic Prayer?

by Robert Arvay, Contributing Writer

According to a recent news report, “Arizona lawmakers are scrambling to change the rules regarding prayer at council meetings in an effort to keep The Satanic Temple from delivering an invocation at a February session.”[i]

There is no need for them to scramble. A proper understanding of the Constitution resolves their problem, and prohibits Satanic prayer in their venue. Let me explain.

One of the founding principles of the United States is freedom of religion. More explicitly, the First Amendment prescribes that, quoting from the text:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof . . . .”

For about two hundred years, this rule was rarely if ever controversial. It was applied in a commonsense manner. If you choose to go to Church “A,” and I choose to go to Church “B,” the law must not force either of us to suffer any penalty for that. Jews are likewise accommodated.

Problems did indeed exist, for example, sometimes a requirement to work on the Sabbath, but these were addressed in a manner that at least seemed sensible to most people.

What was sensible was that the government is not permitted to prefer any one religion over any other.

Wait. That’s not completely true. Not all religions are equal. What the actual amendment really says is that the government is not allowed to respect any “establishment” of religion. While this may seem to be a minor detail, in context it is not. In the context of our nation’s history, the Amendment prohibits the government from forming a state religion, such was the case with the Church of England, which was supported with tax dollars.

Government neutrality with respect to religion has over the years been misinterpreted to mean, in practice, two things. One of them is a government hostility to religion, and not only to religion, but even to religious principles. The other misinterpretation is that anything calling itself a religion is entitled to all the protections of the Constitution.

Both of these misinterpretations cry out for reform. Failure to clarify the principle of religious freedom will make a farce of the Constitution.

It needs to be clarified that our freedoms come from God, the Creator, not from an anti-God such as a satanic entity. It also needs to be emphasized that our Constitution was designed to protect those specific freedoms, the God-given freedoms. It does not protect the freedoms which, for example under Sharia Law, permit men to subjugate women, and to punish those who change their religion.

The founding documents make this clear, as do the subsequent letters and literature written by those who founded our Republic. We do not burn witches, nor permit any religion to do so. At the same time, the Constitution does not protect religions which profess evil, such as religions of witchcraft.

Finally, while no one is forced to believe in any God, government neutrality regarding religion must not be construed to mean that the government must assume an atheistic perspective. Quite the opposite, our nation’s founding is predicated on what the Declaration of Independence terms, “a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence.”

The Satanists in Arizona proclaim that they do not worship an evil entity. They even deny believing in Satan. They simply proclaim an atheistic basis for human secular morality.

Their argument is fraught with confusion and contradictions, one of them being that in demanding their right to offer prayer at a public meeting, they fail to answer, to whom are they praying?

The issue, however is much larger. It involves the soul of our nation.

Why Americans feel like strangers in their own country – Obama’s calculated and deliberate takedown of America

by Jim Mullen, Contributing Writer

If one had to use one word to describe the entire Obama administration it would be anarchy; a word by which fascists live.

Much of traditional America recoils in horror at the utter chaos and devastation befalling this nation in the last seven years. We are fast becoming a country cowering in fear of an uncontrollable, oppressive government.

How did this happen? It makes no sense to people that leftists like Obama crave the exact opposite of a free, traditional, Constitutionalist America. We rationalize that these radicals are ignorant and mistakenly chose this dangerous path of governance.

However, once we comprehend that they are deliberately following their Socialist/Marxist scheme; their actions make perfect sense.

Nearly all wannabe dictators derive their treacherous, tyrannical philosophy from the Manifesto of the Communist Party, the 1848 pamphlet by German Philosophers Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.

As you read Obama’s agenda below, remember his pledge to “…fundamentally transform the United States of America.” This was his Marxist pledge and a calculated and deliberate takedown of America.

Barack Obama, a devout and leftist-trained, slick-talking revolutionary makes it clear that he despises this country and everything for which it stands.

Obama’s Muslim father hated the entire Western World, and Obama had more than a few Communistic influences in his youth. When watching and listening to this President, it’s good to bear in mind that Communists, Marxists, Muslims, and radical leftists, dominate his ideology and poison his judgment. American Nazis of the thirties preached incessantly that to rule this country; they must first destroy the Constitution. Our Commander-in-Chief follows that doctrine – he stretches, bends, and violates nearly every element of the Constitution and whimsically repudiates established laws as minor inconveniences.

Understanding the background, goals, and motives of Barack Obama, his minions, and his New Democrat Socialist Party is essential if we hope to glean an understanding of why they relentlessly lay siege to our American way of life.

Obama’s and the left’s Marxist agenda and blueprint:

– Use the power of bureaucratic politician-created offices and departments to target, isolate, and then destroy any citizen or group of citizens resisting government bondage. Obama uses all the numerous bureaucracies to lay siege on Americans. The IRS, Education, Justice, Labor, Homeland Security, Interior, and Energy, are just a few of the departmental weapons he uses to attack and terrorize citizens.

– Expand illegal Executive power to grow central authority and subject the masses to his whims and dictates.

– Redistribute income and wealth. Obamacare was the epitome of a Marxist scheme not only reallocating peoples’ money, but in controlling who lives and who dies; the ultimate power.

– Maneuver the United States deeper into the United Nations and cede our national identity. We surrender our Constitution, security, culture, religion, and liberty to the New World Order.

– Employ anti-business economic policies designed to restrict people from employment and snare them in a massive web of dependency. These schemes work well reducing the once-powerful middle class into a new malleable voting block of welfare class.

– Relax rules and qualifications that allow more people to qualify for disability. Government reliance skyrocketed under this administration. Creates more dependency.

– Eliminate Charter Schools, home schooling, and all private education programs for easier indoctrination and grooming of children into total acceptance of federal power.

– The second fatality of this administration was the Welfare to Work legislation enacted during the Clinton presidency. Obama wanted no restrictions on welfare. He guaranteed the welfare class would remain on the Democrat Socialist Party’s federal government plantation.

– Continue hammering the ‘Big Lie of Climate Change.’ This shameful scam is an effort by Obama-leftists to impose their dream of world-wide American income and wealth redistribution and global governance. The plot is a massive tax hike on the American people.

– Bestow citizenship to every person in the country.

– Maintain our open border policy and crowd our country with legal and illegal aliens, Islamic immigrants from countries rife with terrorists, and then emptying prisons of violent convicted felons. Subsequently, placing them surreptitiously and strategically around the country to counter balance and/or replace white Christian voting blocks.

– Expand sanctuary cities.

– Enact voter ID laws that encourage fraudulent voting by granting voting rights to every person in the country – including felons and illegal aliens.

– Accept the staggering debt of Puerto Rico and bring them into the fold of statehood, counting on the added votes of another blue state.

– Destroy the Electoral College process for determining the President of the United States. Leftists know this Constitutional protection of states and national rights stand in the way of large Democrat-controlled states deciding nearly all presidential elections.

– Further weaken our Military through monetary cuts and purging the leadership of commanders not toeing the line of leftwing loons. It includes social engineering to undermine and debilitate the American Armed Forces.

– Criminalizing and encumbering police officers from doing their job; especially in minority neighborhoods. Leftist revolutionaries use the streets for riots and demonstrations – therefore, they must demonize police.

– Eliminate tax deduction credits for charity. It’s more difficult getting people enslaved to government if private charities help people.

– Disarm law-abiding citizens and leave them unprotected or create substantial gun-free zones that leave us defenseless wherever lawful Americans may roam.

– Pack our U.S. Federal and Supreme Courts with left-wing radicals who redefine the Constitution as a living document subject to modern-day “modifications” or mores.

– Create divisive strife between classes, genders, religions, races, national origins, and all others Obama rubs together to generate friction and discord.

– Carry on Obama’s policies of laying waste to the middle class.

-Unemployment and falling wages effectively create additional plantations over which the slaveholder, centralized government, assumes absolute control. Also, it builds another enormous, guaranteed voting bloc of dependents.

– Persist with the assault on our monetary, Capitalist, and free-enterprise systems with stifling regulations, fees, and demonization. Mucking up capitalism brings us nearer to the government offering centralized power as the only logical, conclusive alternative. Marxism mandates complete control of all commerce, business, finance, and the citizenry. That is why it always fails so miserably. Government can never compete with liberty; therefore, it must destroy liberty.

– Continue releasing the world’s most dangerous terrorists and unilaterally making deals with terrorist states. Press on with “Rules for Radicals,” Saul Alinsky’s blueprint for fascist control. Likewise, employing politically correct speech to silence the voices of dissent and liberty.

– Maintain the practice of using the U.S. Federal Treasury for bribing people, state and local bodies, businesses and schools into accepting money in return for relinquishing control to the feds. This federal policy led to the present-day catastrophe we now call education.

– Increase Muslim rights. Shariah Law practiced by most Muslims is a complete violation of our Constitution. However, we continue to bring them here. Most are violently intolerant of American ideals, culture, and religion, and the clashing with our values will end in a Holy War and extreme violence. Europe is finally realizing its Muslim folly – far too late.

It is a simple concept; well-educated, employed, and self-sufficient people have little need for an all-powerful entity controlling their lives and robbing them of their income, liberty, and wealth.
Understanding the goals and tactics of Barack Obama and his despotic band of New Socialist Democrats reveals how their ideas relate to the seemingly implausible actions we witness daily. The revolution we see is not a revolution for liberty, but an insurrection for tyranny. Common sense became lost in the fog of fascism.

The deadly extremists inhabiting the White House and their leftist comrades stand as sworn enemies of the United States of America, its Constitution, culture, religion, and entire way of life. They are, by careful design, transforming this country into a Marxist dictatorship. These fascists, abetted by the Main-Stream Media and leftwing Congressmen, embedded themselves into the fabric of government. Obama collectivists represent the greatest threat to the health, security, and freedom of this nation! They symbolize all that is diabolical in a world ablaze and an America facing imminent peril.

Race and the Right

by Nadra Enzi, Contributing Writer

Grassroots conservatives and Frederick Douglass Republicans (FDRs) are the hope for real unity among traditionalists whose skin is Black and White, respectively.

Race relations under Obama are as bad as they were in my Jim Crow-lite youth- which is truly bad! His election (s) drove the Right crazy, particularly Establishmentpublicans at the helm of the RNC, US House, state committees, county committees, PACs, pundits, networks, social media, etc. They doubled down on profound ideological differences so soundly that conservative icons like Jack Kemp questioned their motives.

I’m not a liberal and didn’t vote for the president in either election cycle. My self-esteem isn’t dependent on his presence in the White House, so I’m NOT one of his diehard followers. It disgusts me how he parlayed the American Black experience and bi-racial heritage into a chisel used to chip away hard-won progress and foundational values. Thankfully, grassroots conservatives and FDRs work overtime to unite people with shared principles – not shared pigmentation.

Unlike Establishmentpublicans, whose fratboy smugness dismisses Black people unless seen on Fox News, grassroots conservatives and FDRs consistently engage traditionalists in places far removed from television cameras.

The state of race and the Right is unstable, like a stick of dynamite. We can’t continue allowing clueless Establishmentpublicans to light a fuse better left unlit!

Leaving the USA in Protest? Really?

by Robert Arvay, Contributing Writer

Here is a quote that was posted on line by someone calling him/her/self, usa free citizen:

“I spent a month in China in 2005. The entire time I was there I lived in a brown fog. The sun was just a dull orange ball in the sky and you could not see more than a half mile. I also saw a ‘super highway’ that was 12 lanes wide. It had toll booths and 90% of the traffic on it was bicycles and motorized carts, very few cars. I rode in a Chinese made Buick Regal that had 17,000 kilometers in it and the front end was so worn out that the car was wandering back and forth going down the road.

The people were very nice though. One guy told me that since his company paid for his education he was forced to work for them for 10 years. He made about $100/month and lived in a company sponsored apartment with 4 other guys. He said there was a girl he liked but was not able to date yet. When i asked why he said because he works 7 days a week.
We Americans do not realize how good we have it sometimes.”

Every once in awhile, including very recently, one or another American celebrity will “threaten” to leave America if the next election does not go the way they wish. As far as I know, they never do, except perhaps to avoid excessive taxes that were imposed by the people for whom voted.

I was recently engaged in a prolonged discussion with some Americans who had recently returned to the United States after having lived in western Europe for several years, including France and Germany. Their anecdotes of life in these socialist countries are accounts of societies in which incompetence, apathy and downright insolence have run, as they say, amok.

In western Europe, employees cannot, for all practical purposes, be fired. The consequences of this policy are predictable.

In restaurants, for example, waiters and waitresses are rude to customers, get the orders wrong, overcharge on the bill, and flatly refuse to rectify any problems or complaints. If one resists paying the incorrect bill, the gendarmerie are called in and because they also are incompetent and apathetic, one either pays the bill or is taken to the station for hours of the silent treatment.

When Oprah Winfrey complained about poor service in a European boutique, she thought it was due to racism. Europeans care nothing about race in itself. If one asks a store clerk to get something off the top shelf, they simply will not do it, whether the customer is white or black.

Perhaps I misspoke. After several decades of idiotic immigration policy, many Europeans are in fact beginning to become racially prejudiced, not against blacks, but against Moslem immigrants. The propensity of young, Moslem males to, shall we say, take extraordinary sexual liberties with European women on the street, has finally begun to anger the otherwise docile public. More to the point, they are angry at the lazy, incompetent police forces that are ordered to “stand down,” whenever such crimes are openly committed. Hey, Whoopie Goldberg, better that you go there than to bring them here.

Let’s Restore the Republic

by Robert Arvay, Contributing Writer

George Will is a columnist with whom I sometimes disagree, but this time he has hit the nail on the head so squarely that every American should hear his words. He pointed out that without the power of the purse, and I paraphrase, the Congress has no meaningful powers at all. Sadly, the Congress has surrendered its power of the purse to the Executive Branch. This can and should be reversed. Only a lack of will (no pun intended) prevents it from happening.

The Constitution was designed in such a way as to prevent any one branch of government from overwhelming any other branch. This is why it is ridiculous for Democrats to complain that Congress is thwarting the will of the President. It would be equally accurate to say that the President is thwarting the will of the Congress. The difference is that Congress is largely populated by cowards whose only aim is to get reelected, whereas the president is a far left ideologue who will stop at nothing (and stoop to anything) to enact his agenda.

Will’s proposed remedy is simple and practical. Instead of waiting an entire year to submit an all-or-nothing budget to the president, Congress should send smaller, targeted appropriations bills, let us say, one every month, or even every week. For example, one bill might allocate money to military purposes, while another addresses welfare payments. The threat of “government shutdown” would all but disappear. While this would present problems with budget coordination, those problems would pale in comparison to the fifteen-trillion-dollar national debt, and the fifty trillion in unfunded government liabilities.

To Will’s proposal, I add one of my own. To augment the power of Congress, one must reduce the power of individual members of Congress. Huh? While it sounds counterintuitive, it makes sense. Let me explain.

The original Constitution mandated not more than one representative for each thirty thousand voters. Unfortunately, each representative now represents vastly more than that number of voters. This gives each representative enormous power, and makes them attractive targets for lobbyists, bribes, and other forms of corruption. As a result, no ordinary citizen can get a personal meeting with his or her representative, except under extraordinary circumstances, for example a fat wad of cash.

If instead of 430 representatives in Congress there were 4,300, then no one representative would have so much influence over legislation that his vote would be worth a bribe or lobbying expense. Ordinary citizens would have far more influence in Congress. In other words, we would govern ourselves, instead of being ruled by distant over-lords.

As it now stands, Congress does not represent you or me. It represents its elected members, and is owned by special interest groups with lots of money. That situation is the opposite of a republic. It is a disguised form of tyranny.

Left as it now is, the system will collapse, and indeed is collapsing, of its own weight. It is like a giant tree, outwardly majestic, but inwardly rotten. Its collapse will be sudden and catastrophic. Restoration of the republic will not be easy to accomplish. Neither was its establishment in 1776.

MLK Brings Brothers and Badges Together

by Nadra Enzi, Contributing Writer

It’s not unkind to note that law enforcement, from local to federal, weren’t exactly fans of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Some beat him, others arrested him on trumped up charges and survelllance summed up police abuse he endured.

To be fair, Dr. King was also protected by various levels of law enforcement, too. At no time during these ordeals did he promote attacking police nor demonize the profession. This duality captures how profound a divide can exist between brothers and badges.

Ironically, the 21st century offers closure between descendants of cops who harmed King and contemporary reformers in our community. Violent inner cities can unite police officer and advocate alike by sheer necessity, given the threat commonly faced.

Shared peril can force folks to view each other anew. It’s in this vein that similarity can also draw police officers and community advocates together.

Complaints of bureaucratic bias and media misrepresentation made by police unions and civil rights groups both articulate the plight of high profile minorities, one due to a profession under color of law and the other because of pigment under color of skin. Cops and community advocates feel targeted by politicians, agitators and opinion makers.

Dr. King’s methodology of focusing upon overlooked commonality is particularly instructive in this case. Well-intentioned police officers and community advocates who are honest brokers are allies behind horrible headlines and riotous protests.

Dr. King provided a model for uniting disparate demographics – paid for with his life – which can unite brothers and badges today, thereby saving lives which happen to wear blue and those which happen to wear black skin. Sounds good to me.

ATM Fees and “Hallunacy”

by Robert Arvay, Contributing Writer

“Hallunacy” is a word I made up by combining the words, hallucination, and lunacy. Hallunacy is a mindset, a sort of disorder of thinking that ignores reality, and instead substitutes emotion. It dominates the thinking of the left.

Today’s hallunacy involves ATM (automated teller machine) fees.

For those who are too young to remember, there was a time when there were no ATM fees anywhere. That was because there were no ATMs, anywhere. Whenever I wished to make a cash withdrawal from my meager bank account, I had to saddle up my horse (I’m exaggerating, it was not that long ago), go to the bank, and fill out a withdrawal slip. The teller, a real person, would then hand me my cash.

What if the bank was closed? What then? How would I get my money?

The answer is that, unless I could cash a check elsewhere, which was difficult to do, I would have to wait until the bank opened. What if it were a Friday afternoon, and the bank would not open until Monday? What then? Worse yet, what if Monday were a holiday? I would have to wait until Tuesday. What if I would be out of town on Tuesday, and banks in other cities would not honor my local bank account? Oh, the injustice of it all. After all, it was my own money. Why couldn’t I get it? Those were truly dark days.

The only solution was to plan ahead, thereby avoiding the delay in getting my money. What if a sudden emergency arose? Sadly, I simply could not get my money until the bank opened.

Today, we live in the age of ATMs, a convenience which avoids most of the problems we had in the dark ages. These marvels of technology can dispense cash to anyone who is entitled to the money, by reducing one’s bank account by the amount of the withdrawal.

ATMs are available seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day, even on weekends and holidays. No longer need we drive to the bank, park the car (or tie the horse), walk inside, fill out a withdrawal slip, and ask the teller for our money, all the while engaging in conversations with other customers and bank employees. Instead, we just put our debit card into the ATM, punch in the amount desired, get our cash, and be on our way.

Wait. What if you cannot conveniently get to your own bank’s ATM? Are you out of luck? Will the ATMs of other banks get snippy with you, and say, “If you don’t have an account with us, you cannot get money from us?” No. Their ATM will get snippy with you by telling you that in order to get your money from their money, you have to pay a fee, which will be charged to your account at your own bank.

How unfair! It’s my money. Mine. Why should I have to pay the Bank of Elsewhere for my own money?

As we said, when we use another bank’s ATM, we are withdrawing money from their money. We are using a machine that they paid for and installed, and maintain, and insure (or accept the risk). Why should the Bank of Elsewhere provide us this service for free?

According to those afflicted by hallunacy, the Bank of Elsewhere should be required to provide us this service, if not for free, then at least for a fee that we, not they, can set. After all, it’s my money. Why can’t you understand that? Give me my money.

Bernie Sanders, Socialist candidate for the Democrat nomination (don’t try to make sense of that, I can’t either), is campaigning on the principle that ATM fees should be capped at two dollars. He arrived at that figure by carefully calculating the costs, risks, and economic factors involved, then ignoring all that and plugging in the number, two.

A few years ago, this issue became news in California. As I recall, when confronted with the prospect that the government would set ATM fees, the banks announced their plan: simply not to provide ATMs. The government quickly backed off.

Hallunacy prevents those who practice it from understanding the basic idea that, if people dislike their bank’s policies, they can change banks. If people dislike their bank’s ATM policies, they can saddle up their horse . . .

Thank You To Law Enforcement

by Nadra Enzi, Contributing Writer

The national Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) has designated January 9th, as Police Appreciation Day.

As a Hood hostage who fights back, I thank officers who partner with stakeholders in these embattled zip codes.

As agitators, anarchists and antagonists work overtime to poision the shallow well of police/community unity, let’s exert ourselves even more to preserve it. Tell someone in law enforcement, active, retired or reserve, thank you and resolve to maintain this appreciation annually- especially when headlines drive cop and citizen further apart.

Ingratitude can ultimately invalidate all we hold dear! Appreciate and protect, yes protect, police who can’t protest or speak without permission, from common enemies!
