AMERICA THE FREE!!!   Gay Nazis Force Colorado Baker Out of Business?!?!

The Ongoing Persecution of a Christian Baker

BY THE EDITORS AT NATIONAL REVIEW:

What is it with the pissant totalitarians in Colorado?

Jack Phillips is a baker. He is also a Christian. He declined to bake a wedding cake for a homosexual couple, who, instead of going to the bakery down the street, brought in the state government to try to force him to.

The U.S. Supreme Court ultimately held that Colorado’s so-called Civil Rights Commission had, in targeting Phillips, acted on a foundation of “religious hostility on the part of the State itself.” A second action against Phillips was dropped when the outlaw baker countersued.

Autumn Scardina, who was the complainant in the second action against Phillips, is now pursuing a third, having asked for a birthday cake to celebrate a gender transition.

That is three legal attacks on a man for the purported offense of conducting his bakery business in accordance with his own views and values. We are reminded of William F. Buckley Jr.’s observation: “Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.” American liberals have almost entirely abandoned liberalism, with its tenets of generosity and tolerance, and now insist on conformity and homogeneity — to be enforced at the point of a government bayonet, if necessary, or through financial ruination, or whatever other means of coercion is near at hand.

The legal doctrine of “public accommodations” first came to prominence as a civil-rights matter in the case of racial segregation at a time when African Americans could hardly travel in much of the country as a practical matter. The exclusion of black Americans from public life, when piled on the legacy of slavery, severely circumscribed the lives and opportunities of African Americans. While there is still rank bigotry directed at homosexuals, the situation of gay Americans in the 21st century is not very much like that of African Americans in the 1940s. To accommodate the religious principles of those with traditional views of marriage in this matter requires only a trivial and largely symbolic concession: It is a lot easier to find a gay-friendly caterer in Colorado in the 21stcentury than it was to find a hotel open to African Americans in Alabama in 1937. These are not of equal moral weight.

But the point of this exercise — unlike the point of the civil-rights reforms of an earlier era — is not to provide for the integration of gay Americans into civil life or to enable them to organize their own affairs on their own terms and to engage in the pursuit of happiness in the way that seems best to them. Instead, the point of this harassment — and it is only harassment — is to bully and coerce dissidents into obedience and conformity. That “dissident baker” is a genuine political category speaks eloquently to the insanity of our times.

This is persecution, and it is unjust. It should be addressed with whatever legal and political means are necessary to bring it to a stop.

And a few people in Colorado should grow the hell up.

Fascistic Dems Lead Plot to Destroy America by Wrecking the Electoral College

Wreck the Electoral College, Destroy the Country

 

While you were sleeping, the Democrats (abetted by some deviant Republicans) have been working on a plan that would destroy the diversity of the American political system and bring the nation to the brink of civil war. The plan is called the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, and tens of millions of dollars have already been spent over several decades trying to implement it. Fourteen blue states and the District of Columbia have already joined the Compact, which means they are 70% on the way to making their proposal the law of the land.

The Democrats’ plan is designed to eliminate the influence of the Electoral College in choosing the nation’s president, no doubt because while Hillary won the popular vote she failed win necessary votes in the Electoral College. Eliminating the influence of the Electoral College would end the diversity now embodied in the federal system with its division of powers between Washington and the fifty states. The fact that a party which presents itself as a defender of diversity should be leading the charge to eliminate the nation’s most powerful source of diversity should be all that is required to understand the threat their agenda poses to what has been the nation’s constitutional way of life for 232 years.

The Electoral College and the division of powers are features of the Constitution. But the National Popular Vote movement does not propose to amend the Constitution because it doesn’t have the votes to do that. Instead, in the name of “democracy,” it proposes to circumvent the Constitution and its requirement of large national majorities for amending what has been the fundamental law of the land. Think how Orwellian that is, and how concerning it should be for anyone believing the Founders created the most practical, realistic, democratic, diverse and successful polity the world has ever seen.

This is how the Democrats’ circumvention of the Constitution and its provision for an Electoral College would work. Instead of abolishing the College, which would require the support of two-thirds of the states, they are hoping to put together a coalition of states representing 270 electoral votes that would agree to award all their votes to whoever wins the national vote. In other words, if the popular vote is won by 10 votes, every state in the Compact would award 100% of their votes to that party, even if a majority of the voters in their state voted against them.

The bottom line (and goal) of this devious plan is to eliminate the influence of rural voters or “Middle America” and create an electoral lock for the large urban population centers, e.g., California and New York, which would then decide the direction of the country.

Currently the Electoral College forces candidates to campaign in states they might otherwise ignore, and thus forces them to compete for diverse constituencies, and therefore to compromise and moderate their positions. It was designed by the Founders to move the country to the center and to prevent an overzealous majority from tyrannizing the minority.

Consider the practical implications of this radical plan to remove an institution that has stabilized our political life for more than 200 years. The urban centers of America, which would become dominant under the plan, are also the centers of America’s crime problems and gun homicides, its intractable poverty, its failed public schools and political corruption. Do we really want to replicate for all America the failed welfare policies that have created a permanent underclass in cities like Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, and Baltimore?

Or consider California, a one-party state whose government has defied federal law and proclaimed itself a sanctuary for illegal migrants. What will be the consequences for an already deeply divided nation of having an open-borders policy imposed by leftist states led by California and New York on Middle American states who are already fiercely opposed to flooding the country with millions of illegal aliens whom no government agency has vetted?  lf New York has legalized the killing of babies already born, how will that go down in states already banning abortions of babies with fetal heartbeats? All the blue states pushing this agenda are fans of the Green New Deal which focuses on a problem — global warming — that most of the country doesn’t consider urgent, calls for crushing new taxes to finance new social giveaways while programs like Medicare and Social Security are already on the brink of bankruptcy. Or consider the Green plan to remove 250 million gasoline-driven automobiles within ten years and replace them with electric cars. If an incredibly costly and unsettling confiscation scheme like this is imposed on the rest of the country, what can we reasonably expect as a reaction?

The Founders’ scheme to produce compromise between competing factions and to put checks and balances on radical adventures was never more needed than now, when the country is divided in a way that it has not been seen since the Civil War. But apparently this is the perfect time for an out-of-touch and increasingly out-of-control Democratic Party to undermine the constitutional foundations of the nation, push a divisive agenda, and move the nation towards a one-party state.

Time for Thought

Long time friend and one time teaching colleague at a civilized Minneapolis Public High School fifty years ago when and  where accumulating knowledge and being American,  civil, honest,  and Godfearing were primary goals, he teaching English, and I,  Russian and Social Studies, sent me the following accumulation of words:

“So Democrats want to see the tax returns of a billionaire that became a politician?

Wouldn’t a smart person want to see the tax returns of politicians who became millionaires in office?”

You may be surprised to know our American “Democrats” weren’t fascist savages in those days!!  The human disorder, FEMINISM, where feelings dictate Truth,  had not yet arrived.   Our America of whatever color still had MOTHERS and FATHERS then.

Thank you, Mark Waldeland!…ghr

Why Are Today’s Dems So Reprehensible? BECAUSE THEY’VE BECOME FASCISTS!

Birds of a feather: Why are so many Democrats so reprehensible in exactly the same way?

by Patricia McCarthy  at  American Thinker:

 

Observing the events of the past two years, the past month since the release of the Mueller report, and the last few days of contempt charges, it is impossible to miss the defining characteristics of the most repugnant Democrats driving the impeach Trump campaign.

Pelosi, Swalwell, Schiff, Blumenthal, Nadler, Cohen, Waters, Harris, Booker, et al. are of a piece.  Each of them seems to possess an almost identical and wholesale lack of any character at all.  Each of them is vicious to the core.  Each of them is either wholly unaware of his own hypocrisy, as in falsely accusing Attorney General William Barr of contempt, when those who were in Congress at the time were hysterical when Attorney General Eric Holder was found to be in contempt of Congress.  Or they assume the American people are ignorant and unable to discern the deviousness of their plan to destroy Trump.

Holder actually was in contempt of Congress for authentic scandals involving deaths of Americans, such as Operation Fast and Furious.  Barr is not.  Unlike Holder, Barr is the smartest lawyer in the room.  He knows, as does any sentient legal scholar, that to give the House Judiciary Committee what they are asking for — names of intelligence assets, legally protected grand jury testimony — would be breaking the law.  The Democrats with their handmaidens in the media are manufacturing a “constitutional crisis” simply to hound the president and prolong the collusion hoax as long as possible.

Curiously, Trump does not seem to be at all concerned.  Hmmm.  Could it be that the president sees this throng of sociopaths for exactly who they are: unscrupulous to the shallow depth of their soulless beings?  These people are about one thing alone: their own political power.  To that end, they have no knowledge or grasp of right and wrong.  Like the malignant narcissists they are, they are unable to consider the damage they do, to the country and to people, both groups and individuals.

Likewise, the criminals who invented and perpetrated the Russia collusion hoax are equally unable to see themselves as they are: corrupt and treasonous.  Like the Democrats in Congress, and their counterparts in the media, this coterie of thugs felt absolutely justified in breaking countless laws and abrogating the Constitution to prevent Trump from taking office.  One of Dennis Prager’s most oft repeated quotes is that “those who do not confront evil resent those who do.”

Trump has done an immense amount of good throughout his life.  He builds things, he has employed hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world, and he decided that the U.S. needed some fixing after the damage done by Obama.  So he ran for the office of president.  The Left, even those among the Left who knew him and liked him, hated him from that moment on with the “white hot passion of a thousand suns” (Cheers).  They apparently decided then and there that he would never be president.  Like the schemers in the old film Seven Days in May, their arrogance exceeded their intelligence.  Their contempt for the president and his supporters is the very definition of bigoted intolerance.  They hate Trump because he is not one of them; he is a better man, a better father, a better president, and they know it.

There is another quote of Prager’s that is appropriate here: “If we continue to teach about tolerance and intolerance instead of good and evil, we will end up with tolerance of evil.”  For the past fifty years, the imposition of multiculturalism and all that it has entailed, two generations have been taught that tolerance of all things must supersede all other values.  Ergo, we’ve arrived at a place in which the bulk of one of our two political parties has, if inadvertently, embraced evil in the name of tolerance — radical Islam, all variations of sexual orientation including pedophilia, the absolutist notion that all minorities are victims, all women are victims.  We must now accept the trope that all white men are bad, a blight on civilized society.  How destructive is this to our country?  It is devastating, and they do it purposefully, these Democrats.  They have become the embodiment of Cloward-Piven and Saul Alinsky.  They want to destroy what the founders created, the greatest, freest nation on the planet.  At least it used to be.

Our left has done such terrible damage over the years. They have destroyed academia, especially our once  great universities.  Few of them today permit free speech or freedom from the forced acceptance of all things politically correct.  They no longer value critical thinking, so they do not teach it.  They indoctrinate.  Students who deviate from the new rules that seem to have leapt off the pages of Orwell’s 1984 will be harassed, punished.  They have terrorized the young with their frightening exhortations of man-caused global warming hysteria. They are working hard to obliterate the absolute truth of gender. Science and biology be damned. It is into this moment in time that Trump was miraculously elected to the absolute horror of the Democrats. Their behavior since that day has been monstrous. They’ve lost their minds and have behaved badly from that day forward. Now they are just pathetic, an embarrassment to this country. These Democrats, the ones who so virulently attack and lie about Trump, are worse than ethically challenged; they are congenitally predisposed to be hateful. The lot of them should be so ashamed of themselves, but they’re not. They are birds of feather and a loathsome bird it is.

Dem Fascists Go Wild Attacking AG Wm Barr at Stalinist Jerry Nadler’s May Day Judiciary Committee Gathering

Jerry Nadler just turned the Judiciary Committee into a complete circus

Rising to chairman of the House Judiciary Committee after more than a quarter-century in Congress, New York’s Rep. Jerry Nadler is finally enjoying his moment in the spotlight — by turning the committee into a circus.

On Thursday, Nadler chaired a mock hearing, complete with an empty chair for Attorney General William Barr, who he knew wouldn’t show up.

Playing to the TV cameras, one committee Democrat placed a fake chicken on the chair — and, for good measure, brought a bucket of fried chicken.

The point: “Chicken” Barr was afraid to show his face and testify about his summary of the Mueller report. Never mind that he’d faced a Senate committee the day before, or that the idea of Bill Barr being afraid of Jerry Nadler is just ludicrous.

The reason Barr refused to show is that Nadler demanded that he face questioning from staff lawyers. The AG was perfectly right to object: There’s no precedent for non-members quizzing a Cabinet official in a public Judiciary hearing.

Nadler knew full well Barr would refuse to play the patsy in what would’ve been a mock trial. As the committee’s top Republican, Doug Collins said, the only reason Barr wasn’t there is that “Democrats decided they didn’t want him here.”

Besides, the Judiciary Committee is packed with lawyers, including Nadler. Does the chairman think they’re just not competent to question the AG?

Playing out the show, Nadler went fully over the top, threatening Barr with contempt or impeachment and warning that our “very system of government . . . is at stake.” Please.

Don’t be misled: The Mueller report was a dud, but Democrats don’t dare admit it — nor pay the political price they’d incur if they went for impeachment anyway. So they’ve created a distraction — a phony scandal centered on Barr.

If anyone’s showing contempt for our “very system of government,” it’s Jerry Nadler and his crew.

When Did Fascists Come to Own Middlebury College?

LEARNING FROM LEGUTKO AT MIDDLEBURY

by Scott Johnson  at  PowerLine:

Over the weekend Steve called out Middlebury College as another college that deserves to die when it canceled a planned public lecture by the Polish philosopher Ryszard Legutko. Legutko was the editor of Solidarity’s official journal of philosophy and, since Poland overcame its Communist subjection, he has served at the highest levels of Polish government as well as in the EU’s European Parliament. He is also the author, as Carl Eric Scott put it in NR, of “the challenging book The Demon in Democracy: Totalitarian Temptations in Free Societies.

Steve found Middlebury the perfect example of a place yielding to the totalitarian temptation: “Supposedly it was the threat of violent protests like those that shut down Charles Murray’s appearance at Middlebury two years ago that led the administration to cancel Legutko’s talk, but a clarifying email shows that the real reason the administration offered is even more cowardly.” Steve quoted the email to reveal the depth of the administration’s cowardice.

However, this was not the end of the story. Middlebury professor Matthew Dickinson said he’d allow Legutko to appear stealthily in his class if all his students approved on a secret ballot. All nine students voted yes. When word circulated on social media, the audience grew to 45 students.

Shades of Solidarity! I wish I could have been there. As Steve suggests, the Middlebury story provides a case study in the phenomena dissected in Legutko’s book.

As it happens, Adrian Vermeule has just published a brilliant review of the book in First Things under the title “Liturgy of liberalism.” Toward the end of Professor Vermeule’s summary of Legutko’s argument, he writes:

Liberalism needs an enemy to maintain its sacramental dynamism. It can never rest in calm waters, basking in the day of victory; it is essential that at any given moment there should be a new battle to be fought. The good liberal should always be able to say, “We have made progress, but there is still much to do.” This is why the triumph of same-sex marriage actually happened too suddenly and too completely. Something else was needed to animate liberalism, and transgenderism has quickly filled the gap, defining new forces of reaction and thus enabling new iterations and celebrations of the Festival. And if endorsement and approval of self-described “gender identity” becomes a widely shared legal and social norm, a new frontier will be opened, and some new issue will move to the top of the public agenda, something that now seems utterly outlandish and is guaranteed to provoke fresh opposition from the cruel forces of reaction—polygamy, perhaps, or mandatory vegetarianism.

Read the whole thing here.

(Note from ghr:  I happened to received my Master’s Degree  from Middlebury College over 50 years ago.   It was a three year summer program.  All of the classes were given in Russian.  Students all, had to speak Russian at all times while on campus.

Our instructors were Classical Russians, not Soviet ones who seemed to have invaded our schools during the Obama years.   Many were off-spring of the countless “White Russian” Orthodox refugees who fled the Fascist Soviet Revolution and its wars in the early 1920s  winding up in Manchuria….Mukden, if I remember correctly, most winding up in San Francisco.

They had to flee, families and all, to escape the champion human killer  of them all, Mao Tse Dung in his battles to conquer China when his  gangs invaded Manchuria in 1949.   Most of them settled in the San Francisco area.

I had studied Russian and Soviet Studies at the University of Minnesota in the early 1950s.   After my army stint I got a summer scholarship to ‘rehabilitate’  my Russian at San Francisco State College where I was introduced to this  exceedingly well educated, elegant, aristocratic, knowledge-driven and polite group of people I had, have ever met….all speaking classical  gorgeous Russian! ……and when needed, gorgeous English with a upper class accent and wordings.

Fussy folk were they!  They were intolerant, impatient when it came to  how their students were going to  pronounce every word.  It better be their  Russian…or else!   I wanted to please them, so I spoke  as I was told.

It came to be handy….not merely because I was going to teach Russian for twelve years, but because I was to be IN the USSR on two occasions, 1966 and again in 1990 a few years before the Soviet citizen prison system of life fell to today’s  second or third rate.

Most of the  summer instructors I had at Middlebury College were folks of the same character,  blood and demands of these classical Russians who settled in San Francisco so many years ago.  Visiting the 1966 Soviet Union was one of the greatest experiences of my life.   The nation required Russian citizens to speak only  Russian in public, or else!

None of these classical Russians then teaching Russian 50 years ago at Middlebury were Communists, Socialists, or Feminazis  of the  kind  we find in this Soviet Middlebury of today.

Isn’t that what happens when a fascistic, feminized culture and its teachings no longer have any interest in seeking TRUTH!?)

 

 

 

The Dem Fascist’s GREEN NEW DEAL!…..coming soon at your local State!?

The Obliviousness and Conniving of the Democratic Party

by Steve McCann  at  American Thinker:By Steve McCann

 

Election Day, November 3, 2020, is 20 months over the horizon. Already, there are currently eleven declared candidates for the Democratic Party presidential nomination with another eight or ten waiting in the wings.  With this gaggle of dedicated and oblivious leftists jockeying for position, there is no end to the radical proposals and concepts being bandied about.  However, all these policy propositions have three common goals: the rapid erosion of personal freedom, an equally rapid acceleration of the United States into another failed socialist experiment, and the permanent assumption of power by the self-anointed elites on the left and the Democratic Party.

Nothing reflects this programmed allegiance to socialism and the collective ignorance of the leaders of the Democratic Party more than the economic and societal proposals that have emerged and been endorsed by its presidential candidates over the past two months.  On the surface they no doubt sound great to those who pay little or no attention to facts and reality.  A philosophical discourse on the attributes of capitalism versus socialism oftentimes causes the eyes of the true-believers on the left to glaze over and their minds to go blank, but perhaps a financial reality check would be more meaningful.

The following grab bag of serious proposals by the Democrats, and their cost over ten years (in 2019 dollars), reflect the lunacy that has seized so many on the left:

The Green New Deal:

Cost of: Guaranteed Green Housing…$4.2 Trillion

Zero Emissions Transportation System…$2.7 Trillion

Low-Carbon Electricity Grid…$5.4 Trillion

High Speed Rail System…$2.5 Trillion

Federal Income Guarantee for all Americans…$44.6 Trillion

Total………………. $59.4 Trillion

 

Medicare For All (universal health care)… $32.6 Trillion

Cost of Reparations for African-Americans… $14.0 Trillion

 

Free College Tuition and Forgiveness of Students Debt…$2.4 Trillion

Interest Expense due to higher borrowing and interest rates…$6.6 Trillion

 

All the above are new proposals and spending which total $116.0 Trillion.  However, there is still the issue of current government spending at the federal, state and local level.

The Federal Government currently spends (minus health care and interest) $2.9 Trillion per year.

Ten years of this federal spending (assuming a 1.5% real annual increase) …$31.1 Trillion

 

Current state and local spending (less: health care) $2.95 Trillion per year.

Ten years of this state and local spending (assuming a 1.5% real annual increase… $31.6 Trillion

The unleashed and unhinged Democratic Party and their mad dash to bankrupt the country in combination with what is currently being spent totals: $178.7 Trillion over ten years.

The annual total economic output of the nation is currently $20.0 Trillion (assuming a highly unlikely 1.0% real annual growth) or the nation would have economic activity of  $211.0 Trillion over ten years.  Government spending at all levels would devour 85% of the economic output of the nation.  This year it will be 37%.

The above calculus assumes that the economy could possibly maintain this level of output with all the spending listed above.  With so little capital available to the private sector, and taxes on all productive members of society, by necessity at confiscatory levels, there would be, at first, a stagnant and quickly thereafter a rapidly declining economy.  The vast majority of citizens would no longer be productive, as they would have guaranteed income from the government as long as the government was able to pay — which would not be for long.

The mind-numbed robots on the left often revert to the evergreen solution of “we can borrow the money.”  Currently, the total government debt at the federal, state and local levels is nearly $26.0 Trillion, or 130% of the nation’s total annual economic output (or Gross Domestc Product).  When a nation finds itself in debt to the tune of 200% of its annual GDP, and spending is out of control, borrowing becomes extraordinarily expensive and lenders hard to find.  Therefore, this nation might be able to borrow another $14 to $20 Trillion over ten years, but that would barely make a dent in the above government spending demands.  Besides, the monies would eventually have to be repaid or the assets of the nation sold to the highest bidder.

The other glib answer by the left to the spending demands is “the government can print more money.”  Yes, it can.  But the as the quantity of money available increases, the more rapidly it loses value and more will be required in exchange for tangible goods or services,, which begets additional printing of money in a never-ending downward spiral.

If all this sounds vaguely familiar it was what happened in Venezuela (among more recent examples).

The candidates for the Democratic Party presidential nomination, the senior leadership of the party and its younger members, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, are either mind numbingly ignorant, indoctrinated robots or they are so desperate for power that they will do or say anything they think will enable them to win elections.  When their economic proposals are combined with their determination to transform the culture and legalize infanticide as well as eventually euthanasia, the Democratic Party is now a clear and present danger to all Americans.
