Shocking, Devious, And Evil: How The Democrats Plan For A Coup d'état Will Work

Let me just say this, the democrat/communist party is openly carrying out a coup d'état right in front of us. I have written on many occasions how many of the provisions of ObamaCare are nothing more than a complete and total usurpation of the Constitution that will forever destroy states’ rights, and severely restrict individual rights in this country.

ObamaCare is completely and totally unconstitutional. This is pointed out, yet again, in the Wall Street Journal op-ed co-written by Orrin Hatch, Ken Blackwell, and Kenneth Klukowski:

Why the Health-Care Bills Are Unconstitutional

If the government can mandate the purchase of insurance, it can do anything.

President Obama's health-care bill is now moving toward final passage. The policy issues may be coming to an end, but the legal issues are certain to continue because key provisions of this dangerous legislation are unconstitutional. Legally speaking, this legislation creates a target-rich environment. We will focus on three of its more glaring constitutional defects.

First, the Constitution does not give Congress the power to require that Americans purchase health insurance. Congress must be able to point to at least one of its powers listed in the Constitution as the basis of any legislation it passes. None of those powers justifies the individual insurance mandate. Congress's powers to tax and spend do not apply because the mandate neither taxes nor spends. The only other option is Congress's power to regulate interstate commerce.

Congress has many times stretched this power to the breaking point, exceeding even the expanded version of the commerce power established by the Supreme Court since the Great Depression. It is one thing, however, for Congress to regulate economic activity in which individuals choose to engage; it is another to require that individuals engage in such activity. That is not a difference in degree, but instead a difference in kind. It is a line that Congress has never crossed and the courts have never sanctioned.

In fact, the Supreme Court in
United States v. Lopez (1995) rejected a version of the commerce power so expansive that it would leave virtually no activities by individuals that Congress could not regulate. By requiring Americans to use their own money to purchase a particular good or service, Congress would be doing exactly what the court said it could not do.

Some have argued that Congress may pass any legislation that it believes will serve the "
general welfare." Those words appear in Article I of the Constitution, but they do not create a free-floating power for Congress simply to go forth and legislate well. Rather, the general welfare clause identifies the purpose for which Congress may spend money. The individual mandate tells Americans how they must spend the money Congress has not taken from them and has nothing to do with congressional spending.

A second constitutional defect of the Reid bill passed in the Senate involves the deals he cut to secure the votes of individual senators. Some of those deals do involve spending programs because they waive certain states' obligation to contribute to the Medicaid program. This selective spending targeted at certain states runs afoul of the general welfare clause. The welfare it serves is instead very specific and has been dubbed "
cash for cloture" because it secured the 60 votes the majority needed to end debate and pass this legislation.

A third constitutional defect in this ObamaCare legislation is its command that states establish such things as benefit exchanges, which will require state legislation and regulations. This is not a condition for receiving federal funds, which would still leave some kind of choice to the states. No, this legislation requires states to establish these exchanges or says that the Secretary of Health and Human Services will step in and do it for them. It renders states little more than subdivisions of the federal government.

This violates the letter, the spirit, and the interpretation of our federal-state form of government. Some may have come to consider federalism an archaic annoyance, perhaps an amusing topic for law-school seminars but certainly not a substantive rule for structuring government. But in
New York v. United States (1992) and Printz v. United States (1997), the Supreme Court struck down two laws on the grounds that the Constitution forbids the federal government from commandeering any branch of state government to administer a federal program. That is, by drafting and by deliberate design, exactly what this legislation would do.

The federal government may exercise only the powers granted to it or denied to the states. The states may do everything else. This is why, for example, states may have authority to require individuals to purchase health insurance but the federal government does not. It is also the reason states may require that individuals purchase car insurance before choosing to drive a car, but the federal government may not require all individuals to purchase health insurance.

This hardly exhausts the list of constitutional problems with this legislation, which would take the federal government into uncharted political and legal territory. Analysts, scholars and litigators are just beginning to examine the issues we have raised and other issues that may well lead to future litigation.

America's founders intended the federal government to have limited powers and that the states have an independent sovereign place in our system of government. The Obama/Reid/Pelosi legislation to take control of the American health-care system is the most sweeping and intrusive federal program ever devised. If the federal government can do this, then it can do anything, and the limits on government power that our liberty requires will be more myth than reality.

*Mr. Hatch, a Republican senator from Utah, is a former chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Mr. Blackwell is a senior fellow with the Family Research Council and a professor at Liberty University School of Law. Mr. Klukowski is a fellow and senior legal analyst with the American Civil Rights Union.

This piece hits on all cylinders. Never in our nation’s 233 year history has the federal government attempted to mandate that a United States citizen purchase a product or service, whether that product or service is welcomed by the citizen, or it is forced on them against their will.

And if you look at any poll out there, 70 to 80 percent of the citizenry do not want the current health care schemes that the most corrupt president in the nation’s history and the most corrupt Congress in history plan to forcibly impose on them.

Now I know, the democrat/communists use the excuse that states require that owners of automobiles are required to maintain liability insurance, under the penalty of law to justify this.

But this argument is fatally flawed in several ways, and shows a willful ignorance of how this nation is fundamentally structured.

The automobile insurance example they use is laughable on it’s face value. Driving an automobile is a privilege not a right. You must earn a license in order to drive.

Also, driving a car is a matter of choice. There are millions of Americans who live their entire lives having never driven a car. The insurance you are required to maintain as an owner of an automobile is not to protect you, but to protect others from you, should you have an accident.

You may chose to buy insurance to also take care of repairs or medical issues that effect you in an accident, and if you are financing a car, your bank will require this. But every step of way, all of this is based on the fact that you voluntarily chose to drive a car.

Congress intends to force you to buy health insurance simply because you are alive.

First and foremost, the United States is a Representative Republic, and as the very name of our nation implies, we are united STATES. The entire United States Constitution is centered around the fact that the founders, in their wisdom, planned America as a loose confederation of separate sovereign states that are joined together for mutual benefit. While you certainly find the mention of the duties of the federal, or central government, the Constitution places more effort in protecting the rights of the several states, as they are called. In fact, the 10th Amendment was written solely to protect both the American people, AND the several states from an overreaching central government:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.
The 10th Amendment is so important to the concept of America it is the final right included in the Bill of Rights that were ratified by the several states in 1791.

To put this another way, the United States is 50 separate sovereign entities, independent from each other in most matters. This was a genius move by our founders, as it allows maximum local control by the people, the citizens who make up these states, and ultimately make up this great nation.

Now, for practical purposes, the states are united for a common cause, and with good reason. The founders saw the need to pool resources for things like national security. The also saw a need for uniform trade laws between the several states. It was quite common before the nation was founded, and even when the nation was in it’s infancy, to see trade wars between states. Obviously, a uniform system of trading, and a common currency, were of benefit to all parties involved.

Now over the years, especially since the "
progressive era" that began with Teddy Roosevelt, and went into overdrive with FDR, we have seen many usurpations of states’ rights "for the greater good." Now, not all federal that binds all states, and all citizens to a uniform rule or regulation is bad. But each and every one of these laws erode precious rights of our citizenry and must be strongly considered before becoming law. We’ll go into just how much of this has hurt the nation and the negative impact it has on American citizens in future writings, but for now, let’s stay focused on what is going on right here.

The democrat/communist party does not agree with any of the concepts of our Constitution, or the path our founders laid out for us. A path, by the way, that has made America the nation with the most durable civilization, the most stable, mankind has ever known.

The democrat/communists have been openly saying for generations now that our Constitution is "
obsolete" or, better yet, that it is a "living document." I guess they think that sounds better when they ignore it, which is something they do daily, and have since FDR. Not that "progressive" Republicans haven’t done their fair share, as the trend really first took hold under the Republican Roosevelt, Teddy. Many transgressions there.

The bottom line is this: The democrat/communists simply do not trust the citizenry to "
do as they are told." Americans, by their very nature, and birthright, are an independent people. We don’t need or want anyone to tell us what to do, or how to live our lives. We are a people that feel we should be able to do anything we wish, so long as it doesn’t harm someone else, and we feel that government should not only not be seen, but not be heard!

For the most part, other than providing for a strong national defense, and protecting us, we see little or no need for a federal government. At best, the federal government should be a referee of sorts in case of disputes between the several states, period.

Yes, I know that’s sort of idealized, but it is in line with the vision our founders had.

The rest of governing, of setting rules and regulations are to be left up to each of the several states, which in turn, should be weaker than the local, city governments, in most cases, only creating statewide rules for uniformity and fair practices, or setting minimum standards for things like education, law enforcement, and the like.

We also need state government, along with local government to plan and build major infrastructure, like roads, bridges, and water and sewer systems.

Again, the democrat/communists see government in an entirely different light. They see government as the end all, be all of civil society. All other nations of the world are set up the way the American democrat/communist wish to see America, though what the democrat/communists offer is a more harsh, more severe lifestyle that will rival that of the most brutal dictatorship, and will severely limit, or completely eliminate most of the basic natural rights, God given rights that all of mankind possess. (Though most governments take away)

You see, this is the real problem these evil people have. What most Americans do not realize, and that’s by design as they no longer teach this in government controlled schools, is this: Unlike any other governing document in the world, the United States Constitution assumes the people have unlimited rights, natural rights, rights given to them by their creator. Our Constitution is designed to protect those rights, and the people,
from a tyrannical government.

To the democrat/communist, this is a serious impairment to their cause, to their goals. Barack Obama was the first though to just come out and say what all of these corrupt people have been thinking for decades.

Obama has called the Constitution a set of "
negative rights" because it limits what the government can do to you and doesn’t say what it must do for you!

Of course, this is the point!

Obama, like pretty much every democrat/communist, especially the Ivy Leaguers, is educated well above the level of his actual intelligence. Like the old saying goes: "Just smart enough to be dangerous!"

BTW, this applies to the Ivy League "
progressive" Republicans, as well.

In short, the Constitution seeks to limit government, not people. As a person, you are assumed to have no limits on your rights. Now obviously, to hold civil society together, there are any number of common sense laws that we all must abide by. Some are rules of conduct, like those that restrict driving to only those who have been granted permission, or set building standards. And of course we have laws against stealing, or murder, and so on.

But in the end, the Constitution is all about protecting the citizen from government, and limiting the federal government severely. This is what frustrates the "
progressives, " the democrat/communists to no end.

Of course, they can’t just come out and say that they want to do away with the form of government that is the envy of the world! So, slowly but surely, for about 100 years, they have methodically, and deliberately, undermined the Constitution.

We are now at a tipping point in history though. The democrat/communists have become incredibly unpopular as America has finally awaken to the fact that these people are truly the enemy within, and we will see the next several election cycles completely and totally remove most, if not all of those currently in office. And they know it. In fact, many of the most evil, the most corrupt, are already announcing retirements. Dozens will no longer seek office.

As you will read, they are seeking ways to forever prevent this from happening though.

Of course, having the worst of the worst go away is a tactic as well, as they believe if they bail out, and move on to jobs promised to them by democrat/communist leadership, outside of government, the people will vote for whatever democrat/communist decides to run in their place.

Oh, one thing you must know, all of these "
retirees" are leaving seats that have been safe and reliable democrat/communist strongholds, and all of them are losing in the polls to Conservatives. This is why they believe by tactically stepping down, they will once again fool the people with a little bait and switch. Somehow I don’t think that will work, but only time will tell.

All in all, the democrat/communist is an over educated, arrogant, elite, who think it knows best for everyone else. These people also have an insatiable lust for power and unlimited greed.

The American republican system of federal government simply does not allow them to exert the control over mankind they lust for. This almost maniacal, psychopathic desire to exert dominance and control over others "
for their own good" is the hallmark of the "progressive" movement. And while it is not exclusive to the democrat/communists, there more than a few "progressive" Republicans, this disease is more dangerous when combined with the democrat/communist ideology.

But for all of this to work, America as we know it, must be destroyed, forever.

One more thing I have talked about at length is the so-called environmental movement, and most importantly Big Global Warming. Just like they are using health care, I mean who
isn't for giving people health care, under the guise of "saving the planet" the democrat/communist "progressives" seek to gain total dominance over all of mankind by guilting you into "being a good steward of the earth."

This is an even easier sale than health care, because there actually is pollution, and real environmental issues, just not global warming. No one, and I mean no one wants a dirty environment, and everyone is on board for common sense methods of preserving nature. It’s a real no brainer to be on that bandwagon.

However, you can’t develop a system that will control mass populations, and line your pocketbooks, by just taking good care of the planet. So the global warming "
crisis" was born. The greatest lie ever told was cooked up in order to give "progressives" an excuse to create Big Global Warming, and of course grow Big Government.

Look at the trillions of dollars that have been thrown away chasing this mess. Crooks like Al Gore, the Bernie Madoff of the climate change crowd, has made $100's of millions of dollars off of this scam, and as we know, the proposed cap and trade schemes will make Gore, and others billionaires as they trade "
carbon credits" like stocks, in carbon credit trading exchanges.

This hoax also allows Big Global Warming to team up with Big Government and create regulations that absolutely touch every single facet of a person’s life. Literally no activity, will be left unaffected. A quick search through my past works will show you that population control, forced sterilizations and abortions are very much part of their overall plans. Some real radicals even call for the outright extermination of mass sections of populations. And these are so-called mainstream people. .

In other words, using the "
for your own good" argument, the democrat/communists seek to permanently seize control of the United States government, and destroy the very concept of the United States. In it’s place they, in the words of Barack Obama, want to "fundamentally transform" the United States into a communist dictatorship. They seek to create a strong central command and control government. A government where ever decision, every rule, every regulation, comes not from your local city council, or state legislature, but anonymous, unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats in Washington.

Remember, democrat/communists are all about power. They lust for it, live for it. They are also incredibly greedy. Now all of them have nothing but contempt for capitalism, and openly discuss how horrible it is, but at the same time, they lust after great personal wealth, for themselves, and they make that wealth off the backs of the American tax payer.

To that end, and for the
coup d'état to be complete, the democrat/communists must control elections, ALL elections. Now we have already come to realize that Barack Obama’s former employers, ACORN and their union thug wing, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) are the gold standard when it comes to stealing elections. They wrote the book on voter fraud, and they are partially funded by the federal government, to the tune of billions of dollars for their trouble.

As long as there is a single democrat/communist in Congress, ACORN/SEIU will receive astronomical sums of tax payer money that they will use to continually research new ways to steal elections, as well as refine the old ways.

This is why Barack Obama announced, just days after taking office, that he was taking over the United States census activities, the mechanism we use to apportion delegates to Congress, as well as many other programs, and basically handing it over to ACORN/SEIU to perform. If one has any doubts there won’t be massive corruption in that process they need their heads examined!

Back to voting though. I came across this from the
American Thinker’s James Simpson that spells out how the democrat/communists will destroy the republican form of government, the most successful one ever devised by man, and "fundamentally change" America into a central command and control communist dictatorship:

What the Dems Know:
Universal Voter Registration

Many are puzzled that Democrats persist in ramming unpopular and destructive legislation down our collective throats with no apparent concern for their plummeting poll numbers. A widespread belief is that the Democrats are committing political suicide and will be swept from one or both houses of Congress with unprecedented electoral losses next November. But since Democrat politicians rarely do things that will not ultimately benefit themselves, this column asked two weeks ago, "
What do they know that we don't?"

We may have found out. It's called universal voter registration. The
Wall Street Journal's John Fund described the Democrat plan recently at a David Horowitz Freedom Center forum. Watch the video here.

Fund describes the proposal as follows:

In January, Chuck Schumer and Barney Frank will propose universal voter registration. What is universal voter registration? It means all of the state laws on elections will be overridden by a federal mandate. The feds will tell the states: 'take everyone on every list of welfare that you have, take everyone on every list of unemployed you have, take everyone on every list of property owners, take everyone on every list of driver's license holders and register them to vote regardless of whether they want to be ...'

Fund anticipates that Congress will attempt to ram this legislation through, as with the health care bill. What a surprise! Fund covers the vote issue at greater length in his book,
How the Obama Administration Threatens to Undermine Our Elections.

Leftist groups are already arguing that universal voter registration will solve all the problems with our voting system. But the left created most of these problems. The radical leftist
Nation Magazine, for example, absolutely loves the idea of universal voter registration. This is the same magazine, however, that advanced Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven's Manufactured Crisis strategy. The Cloward/Piven strategy was designed to undermine government institutions by overwhelming them with impossible demands for services. Cloward and Piven focused on welfare, housing, and voting as the main targets of this strategy, and the radical group ACORN was specifically created for the purpose of executing it.

Nation article enthusiastically lists Cloward/Piven-inspired organizations like Project Vote, the ACORN group where President Obama cut his teeth. It also discusses the left's efforts to push enforcement of the Motor Voter law and explains how universal voter registration could assist in these efforts. Cloward and Piven were the ones who crafted Motor Voter legislation in the early 1980s and pushed for its enactment until 1993, when President Clinton signed it into law.

Cloward and Piven considered
Motor Voter to be their crowning, lifetime achievement. The picture, from White House photo archives, shows Cloward (light gray suit) and Piven (green coat and navy dress) standin g directly behind Clinton at the Motor Voter signing ceremony.

The left has predictably launched vicious smear attacks against John Fund for bringing universal voter registration to our attention. A Google search of the issue brings up any number of nasty ad hominem attacks. Most notable is
Media Matters, the leftist group whose sole purpose seems to be to smear Republicans and defend the left's indefensible policies. They put up this gem: "Right-Wing Ass Weasel John Fund Doesn't Like Universal Voter Registration because of ACORN."

The problems with universal voter registration are numerous and obvious. Many states' lists include vast numbers of illegals, including some states which allow illegals to obtain drivers licenses; because many homeowners have more than one home, there will be duplicates; because so many people are on so many separate federal and state government agency lists, there will be duplicates; and because so many lists exist with little or no cross-checking capability, all of these duplicates are likely to go uncorrected. Add to this the fact that Dems hope to extend voting rights to felons, and the whole thing begins to look like a nationwide Democrat voter registration drive facilitated by taxpayers.

Universal voter registration will create massive vulnerabilities to systemic voter fraud nationwide, and if Democrats have proven anything in recent years, it is that they can win elections that way. The George-Soros-funded
Secretary of State project (SOS) was designed to take advantage of such vulnerabilities and may have been developed in anticipation of the universal voter registration plan. Al Franken's stolen election in Minnesota was a trial run for the SOS project. Longtime ACORN friend Mark Ritchie was elected Minnesota Secretary of State in 2006 with Soros's SOS and ACORN money, and what followed in Norm Coleman's Senate runoff election was a frightening demonstration of just how far Democrats will go to win. Franken won the runoff, and the Democrats got their filibuster-proof sixty-vote Senate majority.

Motor Voter law was correctly identified as a facilitator of vote fraud. One of the few legal issues Barack Obama actually participated in as a lawyer was a 1995 suit against the State of Illinois, which he brought on behalf of ACORN. Then-Republican Governor Jim Edgars saw the newly passed Motor Voter act as creating the potential for massive vote fraud and refused to implement it. With the assistance of the Clinton Justice Department, Obama's legal team won that suit. Obama himself actually participated very little, a strategy that seems to have served him well in life. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, after identifying himself in court proceedings, Obama sat back and let "the heavy-hitters at the Justice Department make the arguments."

It is not surprising that the Democrats are now choosing to push this new initiative, for universal voter registration will be
Motor Voter on turbochargers. And who better to sign it into law than the president from ACORN?

Simpson includes an incredible amount of links in his piece. This information will shock some, and simply blow your mind. So with that said, I
strongly encourage all readers to visit the website and further investigate this for yourselves. You can do so by following the link here.

Unfortunately, many Americans are ignorant of how our system actually works. I contend this is on purpose, as the "
progressives" have purposely removed, or downplayed, a lot of this from school curriculums nationwide.

So a quick refresher course:

America does not have "
national" elections. Never has. Ever election is local, even for the President of the United States. Each and every sovereign state has it’s own set of rules, regulations, and practices designed to suit local populations. Past that, counties and parishes, have their own election boards who actually carry out the elections, in accordance with state rules.

The only real input the federal government has in elections is to enforce rules that have to do with civil rights and discrimination. Past that, it’s all local rule.

Of course, with Obama’s regime, we understand civil rights mean nothing, as Obama’s terrorist friendly Attorney General recently set aside a guilty verdict against members of the New Black Panther Party who were convicted, in absentia, for voter intimidation during the 2008 Presidential elections.

The New Black Panthers, are a domestic terror organization that are a redeaux of the original group that had ties to Obama friend and mentor William Ayers’ Weather Underground terror organization. Ayers’ wife, Bernardine Dohrn, was part of the failed Brinks armored car robbery that left security guards and a policeman dead that was planned and carried out by the Black Panthers.

In 2008 the Panthers showed up at a Philadelphia polling place, dressed in full para-military regalia, and carrying deadly weapons.

The men were arrested, tried, and convicted of voter intimidation by the United States Department of Justice, which is headed by Obama’s attorney General, Eric Holder, who promptly ordered the felon convictions set aside.

The New Black Panthers are basically the black version of the Klu Klux Klan, another "
progressive" organization that we have written extensively about. Now unlike the Klan, which was founded by the democrat party in the wake of the Civil War, this group was founded purely as a terror organization, and has no real civic efforts. You can visit their website here.

You need to contemplate this a minute before you read further, and remember these were
armed men, in military looking garb, standing at the front door of the polling place.

You also need to remember, that even after being receiving felon convictions in federal court, all was forgiven by America’s chief law enforcement officer, Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder. And this is with the Republican Party still in place. And saying nothing.

I also want readers to contemplate this for a minute: Every modern day tyrant, every murderous dictator in our lifetimes, Lenin, Stalin, Mussolini, Hitler, Castro, Saddam Hussein, and Hugo Chavez, were all
legally elected by the popular vote of the people.

The one thing they all have in common is that once elected, they worked with their legislative bodies, and networks of street thugs, labor unions, and so on, to gain complete control of government, and retain power until removed by war and/or death.

What this seemingly innocent "
universal voter registration" will cause to happen, besides opening up the voter rolls to felons, illegal aliens, and others not legally allowed to vote, is to wrest control of the voting process from the local, state, county, and parish officials, and give command and control of all elections to the all powerful federal government.

It doesn’t take a genius to see that a nation that already tolerates groups like ACORN/SEIU who openly steal elections, with impunity, and a nation that doesn’t raise holy hell when an ultra-racist domestic terrorist group shows up at a polling place armed and with an attitude, is ripe for destruction.

Throw in a compliant media that is more than happy to not only shill for the democrat/communist party, and actively smear anyone from any other party, but cover up anything to do with stories about group likes ACORN/SEIU and the Black Panther Party, and it’s over!

We are in real trouble in this nation. We are literally one or two little pieces of the puzzle falling into place before there in no more United States. Only a few more things need to happen: ObamaCare needs to pass, and it seems that in some form it will, and cap and trade laws need to be in place. Obama, through the EPA, will force Congress to pass them, as the EPA now has the authority to impose draconian regulation on all of America, if they don’t.

This "
universal voter registration" scheme will be the final step needed to end the United States forever. Now I’m not saying Obama will be a dictator, per se, as he is a truly incompetent man, but he may remain a figurehead, "duly elected by the people."

Here’s the problem: With ACORN/SEIU left unchecked to get itself involved in every state, local, and federal election, with terror groups like The New Black Panther Party allowed to carry out voter intimidation, knowing that even felony convictions will be thrown out, and a complicit and corrupt media looking the other way, the democrat/communist party will become the only party. No other party will be able to win another election.

We already see how these people operate. Look at health care. Between 70 and 80 percent of the country are against this deal, and yet, we are going to get it "
for our own good." Republicans have been totally shut out of the process, they are not even allowed to participate. Their only contribution to the American people is to use parliamentary procedures to at least delay this thing. It’s all they can do.

The same efforts will be used with cap and trade.

We also know that Obama has no problem with Chicago style thug tactics, as he sent out union thugs from the SEIU during the summer, implored by him to "
punch back twice as hard." at those who opposed his health care plan. This lead to many attacks by SEIU members on peaceful American citizens, like Kenneth Gladney, who was beaten so badly he ended up in a wheel chair, and called a "nigger" by the purple shirted SEIU thugs, many black themselves, all because he was selling patriotic goods at a town hall rally. These are the tactics were used by Hitler’s brown shirts, by the way.

Anyone who doesn’t think the power mad, maniacal leaders of the democrat/communist party won’t do whatever it takes to pull off this
coup d'état is simply naive. They have thirsted for the sort of power they now enjoy for 100 years, and they now have the mechanisms in place to see that they will forever remain in power.

This power will allow them to finally do away with the uniquely American republican form of representative government. To forever destroy the concept of states’ rights, and state sovereignty, and the concept of personal liberty and freedom.

This power will allow them to swiftly set up an all powerful central command and control government that will rule over every single facet of your lives.

You now have a choice. Will you get actively involved and do absolutely everything humanly possible to stop this evil, and stop it now, or will you, like many populations in history, simply abdicate all of your freedom and liberty for a life of tyranny and oppression, because doing something about all of this will be just too hard?

It is a time for choosing.

Democrat: The Party Of Murder, Racism, And Hate

The modern day democrat/communist party is nothing more than a group of malcontents, bent on destroying the very fabric of American society, all of the things that make America great.

As all of these people are students of the Saul Alinsky method, they attack absolutely anyone and everyone who dare disagree with their plans in any way, even their own.

Democrat/communists routinely attack those who disagree with them, or call them out on their continual and massive lies. One of Alinsky ‘s "Rules" is in continual use by the dishonest Obamacentric media, the democrat/communist party, and of course, the White House.

Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and 'frozen.'...

any target can always say, Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?' When your 'freeze the target,' you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments.... Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the 'others' come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target...'

One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other."

You’ve seen this put into practice daily for years, but Obama and his thugocracy have elevated Alinsky’s "
Rules" to an art form.. The left has tried it with Rush Limbaugh when he called out Obama, they tried it on members of the Tea Party movement, and when one of their own, the affable, and incredibly likeable Joe Lieberman, dared to stray from the party line on ObamaCare.

The hateful democrat/communist party and all of their helpers in the media not only "
personalized and polarized" their attacks on Joe, but his lovely wife as well!

Mrs. Lieberman happens to be an ambassador for the
Susan G Koman Foundation, certainly a good cause. The hatemongers in the democrat/communist party were demanding that she be fired from her position.

Of course, for Joe, this is nothing new. While the rest of the democrat/communists were attacking George Bush on the war, to score political points with their moonbat base, Joe Lieberman crossed over and supported Bush’s efforts to keep America safe.

The democrat/communists were so angered they found a primary challenger, Ned Lamont, and sent every hack to Connecticut, spent tons of money, and of course, called out the ACORN thugs, to defeat Joe.

Don’t forget, Lieberman was the vice presidential candidate on the losing ticket in 2000, along with global warming scammer, Al Gore. In the democrat/communist party, dissent is not tolerated in any way, shape, or form.

This is typical of the democrat/communist party. This was published on the far left hate website, the Huffington Post:

You ever notice that while claiming to be the party of the minorities, the party that "
defends" blacks and gays, the number one way they use to ridicule people they disagree with, is to either portray them as "black" or call them a "faggot."

In the end, Lieberman ran as an independent, and won his re-election bid. The democrat/communists were also incredibly angered when Lieberman crossed over to support John McCain and Sarah Palin rather the joke of a candidate that now resides in the White House.

Speaking of Sarah Palin, she is a case study unto herself about how the hatemongering democrat/communist movement uses Alinsky on a daily basis. The hate filled party and the media (
yes, I understand that’s redundant) went into warp drive trying to destroy Sarah Palin.

They attacked her at every step. They attacked her husband, they attacked her children, they attacked her friends. We’ve not seen anything like it in modern history. The attacks were vile, vicious and incredibly over the top. They also used this time honored Alinsky "

"Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage."

Of course, much to their shock and dismay, Sarah Palin is more than up to the task of counteracting everything they throw at her. Sarah, you see, is just too strong, and just to powerful in her convictions.

One notes that to this day, those on the left cannot and will not discuss actual policy differences they have with Palin, it’s because they cannot compete in the marketplace of ideas. All those in the democrat/communist party know is attack, attack, attack.

Lest you wonder how intertwined the teachings of the anti-American Communist revolutionary, and Chicago native, Alinsky, are with the modern day democrat/communist party in general, and Barack Obama in particular, please remember that Obama, in his capacity as a trainer for ACORN, was responsible for teaching their "
thugs for hire" the Alinsky "Rules."

The website Crossroads offers this commentary on both Obama as well as Hillary Clinton:

Background information:

Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father's model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday." --Letter from L. DAVID ALINSKY, son of Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky

Hillary, Obama and the Cult of Alinsky: "
True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within. Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties".... Many leftists view Hillary as a sell-out because she claims to hold moderate views on some issues. However, Hillary is simply following Alinsky’s counsel to do and say whatever it takes to gain power.

Barack Obama is also an Alinskyite.... Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method. In 1985 he began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, working for an Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project.... Camouflage is key to Alinsky-style organizing. While trying to build coalitions of black churches in Chicago, Obama caught flak for not attending church himself. He became an instant churchgoer." (By Richard Poe, 11-27-07)

Hillary Clinton, a Chicago gal, is also a disciple of the Alinsky school of thought. Also from Crossroads:

Hillary Clinton's 1969 Political Science Thesis ("There is Only the Fight") refers to an earlier version of Alinsky’s training manual. "In 1946," she wrote, "Alinsky's first book, Reveille for Radicals, was published."

Interesting little fact from the opening page of Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals:


Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history... the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer."

That’s right, Alinsky dedicated, what has become the democrat/communist party’s bible, to Satan, the Devil himself!

Kind of says it all, huh?

Now while most try and hide, some democrat/communists are feeling their oats these days, and are openly calling Saul Alinsky their "
hero" as dim-witted newscaster Chris Matthews recently did on his barely watched MSNBC show, Hardball:

Matthews, by the way, is talking to Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who is a member of the socialist party. Like him or not, you gotta respect him, at least old Bernie has the guts to openly admit what he is, and actually stand for election based on that, something democrat/communists don’t have the guts to do.

The problem, of course, is the democrat/communists simply cannot compete in the marketplace of ideas. They must shield everything they do behind lies and distortion, because the American people, as we are seeing, do not want to be communists. The American people soundly resist, and reject everything the democrat/communist party agenda is truly about, wen they learn the truth.

This is why rather than truly explain their positions, and present the arguments why they think their way is the way to go, they just attack, attack, attack.

Of course, Alinsky didn’t introduce hate into the democrat party, or even communism. FDR was a closet communist, or if you prefer a more charitable term, a socialist, not that there is any real difference, all of the isms, liberalism, socialism, fascism, and communism are always spectacular failures, every time they are tried.

No, the democrat/communist party has a long legacy of hate, violence, and racism. And that’s what I really want to talk about today. The lead photo in this piece is one of Margaret Sanger, the democrat/communist icon of the abortion death cult the democrat/communists lovingly refer to as the "
pro-choice movement."

Of course, we all know that Margaret Sanger is the founder of what is now known as Planned Parenthood, the Holy Church of the democrat/communist party. A group who has murdered babies by the millions, and a group that is substantially funded by American tax payer dollars.

The annual Margaret Sanger Awards, given out by Planned Parenthood, "
to recognize leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement," are some of the most coveted awards a democrat/communist can be given.

Hillary Clinton was a 2009 recipient. And for those that remember the New York 23 congressional special election from last year, one of the real issues with so-called "
moderate" Republican DeDe Sczzafava, besides the fact that she was really a radical "progressive" democrat/communist, or as columnist Mark Steyn called her, a DIABLO (Democrat In All But Name Only) was the fact that she was a Margaret Sanger Award winner.

This and her radical far left record in the New York Statehouse is what led to a Conservative Party candidate, Doug Hoffman, to enter the race.

Of course, one cannot speak of Margaret Sanger, without mentioning the Klu Klux Klan, another creation of the democrat/communist party. Remember, the democrat/communists still have a member of the Klan serving in the United States Senate to this day, Robert Byrd, of West Virginia.

Sanger spoke at many Klan rallies to the women, and as I have written many times, she was a leading proponent of eugenics, and said to have been an inspiration to both Adolf Hitler and Josef Mengele. In the early 20th century, American "
progressives" lead the world in this field. Sanger referred to blacks as "human weeds."

Peter Heck writes in the Perspectives section of the
One News Now website:

Move over, KKK

Back in February, Eric Holder – the country's first black Attorney General – announced that we were a nation of cowards because, "
we, as average Americans, simply do not talk enough to each other about race." Holder is right.

That there are still organizations operating in this country that demonize, target, and victimize innocent people simply because of the color of their skin is unconscionable. That there are still hate groups in our midst whose very foundation is rooted in a malevolent contempt for minorities is disgusting. That, while we stand quietly, there are those working daily inside this country to commit genocide against blacks is an abomination. And worse, still others go beyond complicit silence and actually attempt to give legitimacy and offer defense for such institutions perpetrating these atrocities.

These devastating realities only prove Holder's assertion to be accurate. It is long as Planned Parenthood continues to operate in this country, we are a nation of cowards.

In her book The Pivot of Civilization, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger wrote that unless something was done to stop them, those living in the slums (blacks, Hispanics, and Jews) would eventually leave the boundaries of their neighborhoods and mix with the better parts of society (whites). Their inferior genes, she argued, would then infect the rest of us. Therefore, she suggested we cease all charitable giving to the inner-city poor, segregate these "
morons, misfits, and maladjusted," sterilize these "genetically inferior races," and begin a process of eliminating such "human weeds."

And her organization, Planned Parenthood, has done just that. In the 1980s, the organization began intentionally targeting black inner-city neighborhoods for their clinics. Author George Grant pointed out that, "
of the more than 100 school-based clinics that have opened nationwide in the [1980s]...all have been at black, minority, or ethnic schools." By 1991, Planned Parenthood was reporting that 43 percent of all its abortions were performed on minorities – a time when the minorities accounted for only 19 percent of the total population. And in a comparative analysis between the 2000 U.S. Census data and the location of Planned Parenthood clinics, Cybercast News Service concluded, "The results appear to bolster the charge that the organization targets black communities."

Consider also a recent sting operation conducted by The Advocate, a student magazine at UCLA. In the sting, an actor posed as a potential donor to Planned Parenthood wanting to contribute his money to help "
lower the number of black people." In the seven states where the sting took place, each clinic agreed to take the racially earmarked contribution, with none of them expressing concern over the motivation. In one exchange, the actor said, "the less black kids out there, the better." The Planned Parenthood director responded by saying such sentiments were "understandable."

Combine those grim realities and you begin to see that Planned Parenthood is doing its part to carry on the eugenic and racist policies of its founder. But don't take my word for it. Alan Guttmacher, who led Planned Parenthood for 12 years, stated, "
We are merely walking down the path that Ms. Sanger has carved out for us." And recent Planned Parenthood President Faye Wattleton stated she was "proud" to be "walking in the footsteps" of Sanger. When you consider that Wattleton is black, it is difficult to know whether to be outraged or just cry at such a statement.

As a leftist himself – whose boss got elected to the White House thanks in no small part to contributions from Planned Parenthood and its allies – I recognize that Eric Holder certainly wasn't calling for an open discussion about the abortion mills' racial genocide. This only proves that while preaching against racial cowardice, Holder is ignoring his own. You simply can't be taken seriously when discussing America's racism problems if you are willing to ignore the greatest perpetrators of racial injustice in our midst.

Talk to me all you want about Rush Limbaugh and his comments regarding Donovan McNabb. If you are not simultaneously sickened by the revolting racism of Planned Parenthood...if you are not demanding that immediate action be taken against it and the evil it encourages...if you are not ashamed that such a group continues to operate with a third of its budget financed with your tax are a coward with absolutely no credibility to ever be taken seriously on this issue.

As you see, not much has changed since the days that Sanger herself oversaw Planned Parenthood. The group is still "
tending to the weeds."

The website Black Genocide has a lengthy article on Sanger and Planned Parenthood, here’s the first few paragraphs:

How Planned Parenthood Duped America

At a March 1925 international birth control gathering in New York City, a speaker warned of the menace posed by the "
black" and "yellow" peril. The man was not a Nazi or Klansman; he was Dr. S. Adolphus Knopf, a member of Margaret Sanger's American Birth Control League (ABCL), which along with other groups eventually became known as Planned Parenthood.

Sanger's other colleagues included avowed and sophisticated racists. One, Lothrop Stoddard, was a Harvard graduate and the author of
The Rising Tide of Color against White Supremacy. Stoddard was something of a Nazi enthusiast who described the eugenic practices of the Third Reich as "scientific" and "humanitarian." And Dr. Harry Laughlin, another Sanger associate and board member for her group, spoke of purifying America's human "breeding stock" and purging America's "bad strains." These "strains" included the "shiftless, ignorant, and worthless class of antisocial whites of the South."

Not to be outdone by her followers, Margaret Sanger spoke of sterilizing those she designated as "
unfit," a plan she said would be the "salvation of American civilization".: And she also spoke of those who were "irresponsible and reckless," among whom she included those " whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers." She further contended that "there is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped." That many Americans of African origin constituted a segment of Sanger considered "unfit" cannot be easily refuted.

While Planned Parenthood's current apologists try to place some distance between the eugenics and birth control movements, history definitively says otherwise. The eugenic theme figured prominently in the
Birth Control Review, which Sanger founded in 1917. She published such articles as "Some Moral Aspects of Eugenics" (June 1920), "The Eugenic Conscience" (February 1921), "The purpose of Eugenics" (December 1924), "Birth Control and Positive Eugenics" (July 1925), "Birth Control: The True Eugenics" (August 1928), and many others.

Black Genocide is a great reference website, I encourage everyone to explore it and learn more about the institutional racism, hate, and murder practiced by the democrat/communist party.

This thinking is very much alive and well in the Obama White House. As Michelle Malkin reported back in July of 2009, John Holdren, Obama’s Science Czar is a stark raving lunatic, pretty much like everyone else that works for the White House. Eugenics is a special kind of evil and as Malkin points out, Holdren is a stanch supporter:

Looks like Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg isn’t the only one who’s been channeling eugenicist Margaret Sanger.

Internet sleuth
Zombie has a new report on John Holdren, President Obama’s science czar:

Forced abortions. Mass sterilization. A "
Planetary Regime" with the power of life and death over American citizens.

The tyrannical fantasies of a madman? Or merely the opinions of the person now in control of science policy in the United States? Or both?

These ideas (among many other equally horrifying recommendations) were put forth by John Holdren, whom Barack Obama has recently appointed Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, and Co-Chair of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology — informally known as the United States’ Science Czar. In a book Holdren co-authored in 1977, the man now firmly in control of science policy in this country wrote that:

• Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not;

• The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation’s drinking water or in food;

• Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise;

• People who "
contribute to social deterioration" (i.e. undesirables) "can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility" — in other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized.

• A transnational "
Planetary Regime" should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans’ lives — using an armed international police force.

Impossible, you say? That must be an exaggeration or a hoax. No one in their right mind would say such things.

Well, I hate to break the news to you, but it is no hoax, no exaggeration. John Holdren really did say those things, and this report contains the proof. Below you will find photographs, scans, and transcriptions of pages in the book
Ecoscience, co-authored in 1977 by John Holdren and his close colleagues Paul Ehrlich and Anne Ehrlich. The scans and photos are provided to supply conclusive evidence that the words attributed to Holdren are unaltered and accurately transcribed.

Zombie’s got all the goods. Read the whole thing.

Nice, huh. This sort of lines up with Cass Sunstein, another loon, and an actual Obama cabinet member, confirmed by the Senate. Sunstein is a column all unto himself! Also, please note that Paul Ehrlich wrote a book called
The Population Bomb, which basically calls for mass murder on an industrial scale, to save the planet.

It also lines up quite nicely with what Sarah Palin famously called "
death panels, " the rationing of health care to the elderly, disabled, and chronically ill. So important are these "death panels" to the democrat/communist party, that Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid,knowing that when they take power, repealing ObamaCare will be job one for Republicans, placed a provision that would make it virtually impossible to take the "death panels" provisions out of the bill, even if the entire bill was somehow repealed.

We discuss this at length in our piece entitled, Sarah Palin: Midnight Votes, Backroom Deals, and a Death Panel: The Continuing Constitutional Crisis.

These "
death panels" are part of Obama’s health care adviser Dr Ezekiel Emanuel’s master plan.

And lest you think Big Health Care and Big Abortion are the only two groups of democrat/communists who wish to advocate the destruction of humanity, or at least the "
undesirables," please note the lengthy list of quotes from high profile and well known global warming loons we put together in our piece, Climate Change Zealots: Not Just Wrong, But Pure Evil Too.

Speaking of quotes, here is an "
impressive" series of quotes from Margaret Sanger our friend and colleague Bardsmith compiled for us:

"The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it." --Margaret Sanger

"Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race." --Margaret Sanger

"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…" --Margaret Sanger

"Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need ... We must prevent multiplication of this bad stock." --Margaret Sanger

"Eugenics is … the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems." --Margaret Sanger

"Birth control itself, often denounced as a violation of natural law, is nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who will become defectives." --Margaret Sanger

"The unbalance between the birth rate of the 'unfit' and the 'fit,' [is] the greatest present menace to civilization… the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective." --Margaret Sanger

"Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying… a dead weight of human waste… an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all." --Margaret Sanger

"The undeniably feeble-minded should, indeed, not only be discouraged but prevented from propagating their kind." --Margaret Sanger

"The marriage bed is the most degenerative influence in the social order..."

--Margaret Sanger

"[Our objective is] unlimited sexual gratification without the burden of unwanted children..." --Margaret Sanger

"[Mandatory] sterilization for [the insane and feeble-minded] is the answer." --Margaret Sanger

"Give dysgenic groups [people with 'bad genes'] in our population their choice of segregation or [compulsory] sterilization." --Margaret Sanger

Margaret Sanger proposed the American Baby Code that states, "No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child… without a permit for parenthood."

Margaret Sanger also proposed the Population Congress with the aim, " give certain dysgenic groups in our population their choice of segregation or sterilization."

"Always to me any aroused group was a good group, and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan..."

Remember these quotes the next time you hear a prominent democrat who supports Planned Parenthood speak, especially if they are "
proud " Margaret Sanger Award winners.

Another great reference website is The Truth About Margaret Sanger

Although it got little attention beyond the Conservative movement, when Barack Obama was elected, the National Black Republican Association drafted a proclamation petitioning President Obama for an official apology from the democrat/communist party for it’s 150 year history of systematic racism:

President Obama, Can You Spare A Proclamation

The National Black Republican Association has issued a petition to Barack Hussein Obama, the leader of the Democratic Party, requesting that Obama issue a formal proclamation of apology for the Democratic Party's 150-year history of racism.

We recognize that this is likely too much to ask of the oh so "racially sensitive" Democrats who want us to ignore their racist past and failed socialism that have caused so much harm to black Americans. So we will not hold our breath waiting for their response.


Petition to Barack Hussein Obama for a Proclamation of Apology for the Democratic Party's 150-year History of Racism

We, black American citizens of the United States and the National Black Republican Association, declare and assert:

WHEREAS, the healing of wounds begins with an apology, and the Democratic Party has never apologized for their horrific atrocities and racist practices against black Americans during the past 150 years, nor held accountable for the residual impact that those atrocities and practices are having on us today,

WHEREAS, as a result of the 1898 Wilmington Race Riot Commission Report of May 31, 2006, the North Carolina Democratic Party issued a unanimous apology on January 20, 2007 for the Democratic Party's 1898 murderous rampage against blacks,

WHEREAS, inner-city minister Rev. Wayne Perryman wrote a book, "
Unfounded Loyalty: An In-depth Look Into The Love Affair Between Blacks and Democrats", and filed a lawsuit against the Democratic Party on December 10, 2004, but, after admitting their history of racism under oath in court, the Democrats refused to apologize,

WHEREAS, history shows that the Democratic Party through its racist agenda and "
States' Rights" claim to own slaves, sought to protect and preserve the institution of slavery from 1792 to 1865, thus enslaving millions of African Americans, while the Republican Party was started in 1854 as the anti-slavery party, fought to free blacks from slavery and championed civil rights for blacks,

WHEREAS, the Democratic Party enacted fugitive slave laws to keep blacks from escaping from plantations; instigated the 1856 Dred Scott decision which legally classified blacks as property; passed the Missouri Compromise to spread slavery into 50% of the new Northern states; and passed the Kansas-Nebraska Act designed to spread slavery into all of the new states,

WHEREAS, the Democratic Party in the South formed the Confederacy, seceded from the Union and fought a Civil War (1861 to 1865) to expand slavery where over 600,000 citizens were killed, including many thousand blacks,

WHEREAS, starting in 1861, anti-Civil War Democrats in the North were called "
copperheads" like the poisonous snake because they (a) wanted to appease the South and accept a negotiated peace that would have resulted in an independent Confederacy where blacks were kept in slavery, and (b) showed their deep opposition to the Civil War draft by taking their anger out on blacks, murdering and maiming blacks in virtually every Northern state,

WHEREAS, anti-Civil War Democrats in New York engaged in "
Four Days of Terror" against the city's black population from July 13-16, 1863, and the anti-Civil War chant of the Democrats, as reported by one Pennsylvania newspaper, was: "Willing to fight for Uncle Sam", but not "for Uncle Sambo,"

WHEREAS, the anti-Civil War Democrats verbally attacked Republican President Abraham Lincoln because he wanted to free the slaves through war and grant blacks civil rights, and drafted Northern men into the army to fight and die to make his Emancipation Proclamation a reality - a Proclamation that became the source of the Juneteenth celebrations that occur in black communities today,

WHEREAS, after the Civil War, the Republican Party (a) pushed to amend the Constitution to grant blacks freedom (13th Amendment), citizenship (14th Amendment) and the right to vote (15th Amendment); (b) passed the Civil Rights Acts of 1866 and 1875; and (c) designed Reconstruction, a ten-year period of unprecedented political power for African Americans,

WHEREAS, anti-civil rights Democrat Andrew Johnson became president when Republican President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, and after the Civil War, the Democratic Party fought to end Reconstruction and deny blacks the promised "
40 acres and a mule;" fought to overturn all civil rights legislation from the 1860's to the 1960's; and passed repressive legislation including the Black Codes and Jim Crow laws,

WHEREAS, the book "
A Short History of Reconstruction" by the renowned historian, Dr. Eric Foner, revealed that: (a) the Ku Klux Klan was founded in 1866 by Democrats as a Tennessee social club; (b) the Ku Klux Klan became a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party, the planter class, and all those who desired the restoration of white supremacy; and (c) the Ku Klux Klan spread into other Southern states, launching a 'reign of terror' against Republican leaders, black and white,

WHEREAS, the book "
A Short History of Reconstruction" by Dr. Eric Foner exposed the facts that: (a) the Hayes-Tilden Compromise of 1877 was an attempt by Republicans to get the Democrats to stop lynching Republicans, black and white, and respect the rights of blacks; and (b) contrary to legend, President Rutherford Hayes did not remove the last federal troops from the South, but merely ordered federal troops surrounding the South Carolina and Louisiana statehouses to return to their barracks,

WHEREAS, after taking control of Congress in the late 1800's, the Democratic Party passed the Repeal Act of 1894 that overturned civil rights legislation passed by the Republicans, including the Civil Rights Acts of 1866 and 1875,

WHEREAS, the Democratic Party supported the "
Plessy v. Ferguson" decision in 1896 that established the "separate but equal" segregation doctrine,

WHEREAS, historical documents show that: (a) in an effort to stop the Democrats from lynching and denying civil rights to blacks, the NAACP was founded on Republican President Abraham Lincoln's 100th birthday, February 12, 1909, by white Republicans Oswald Garrison Villard, Mary White Ovington and William English Walling; and (b) the first black general secretary of the NAACP was black Republican James Weldon Johnson who became the general secretary of the NAACP in 1920 and, in 1900, wrote the song, "
Lift Every Voice," known as the "Black National Anthem" in collaboration with his brother, John Rosamond Johnson,

WHEREAS, after Democrat President Woodrow was elected in 1912 and while Congress was controlled by the Democrats, black American civil employees where pushed out of federal government jobs, and the greatest number of bills proposing racial segregation and discrimination were introduced than had ever been proposed in our nation's history,

WHEREAS, even though Democrat President Franklin D. Roosevelt received the vote of many black Americans due to his "
New Deal," he banned black American newspapers from the military because he was convinced the newspapers were communists and rejected anti-lynching laws pushed by Republicans, as well as efforts by Republicans to establish a permanent Civil Rights Commission that did not get established until 1958 under Republican President Dwight Eisenhower,

WHEREAS, Democrat President Harry Truman not only rejected Republican efforts to enact anti-lynching laws and establish a permanent Civil Rights Commission, but also failed to enforce his 1948 Executive Order designed to desegregate the military, an order that was not effectively enforced until Republican President Dwight Eisenhower was elected,

WHEREAS, with the party slogan: "
Segregation Forever!," the Dixiecrats, who were Democrats, (a) formed the States' Rights Democratic Party for the presidential election of 1948; (b) remained Democrats for all local elections and all subsequent national elections; and (c) did not all migrate to the Republican Party as Democrats today falsely claim, but instead those racist Democrats died Democrats and had declared that they would rather vote for a "yellow dog" than a Republican because the Republican Party was known as the party for blacks,

WHEREAS, during the civil rights era of the 1960's, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who was a Republican, was fighting the Democrats including: (a) Democrat Georgia Governor Lester Maddox who famously brandished ax handles to prevent blacks from patronizing his restaurant; (b) Democrat Public Safety Commissioner Eugene "
Bull" Connor in Birmingham who let loose vicious dogs and turned fire hoses on black civil rights demonstrators; and (c) Democrat Alabama Governor George Wallace who stood in front of the Alabama schoolhouse in 1963 and thundered: "Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever,"

WHEREAS, the Democratic Party supported the Topeka, Kansas school board in the "
Brown v. the Board of Education of Topeka", Kansas (a 1954 Supreme Court decision by Chief Justice Earl Warren who was appointed by Republican President Dwight Eisenhower) which declared that the "separate but equal" doctrine violated the 14th Amendment and ended school segregation,

WHEREAS, in 1954, Democrat Arkansas Governor Orville Faubus tried to prevent the desegregation of a Little Rock public school, resulting in Republican President Dwight Eisenhower sending federal troops to prevent violence and enforce a court order desegregating the Little Rock school,

WHEREAS, Democratic President John F. Kennedy was not a civil rights advocate because he: (a) voted against the 1957 Civil Rights Law (that was pushed by Republican President Dwight Eisenhower); (b) opposed the 1963 March on Washington by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (that was organized by black Republican A. Phillip Randolph); (c) authorized the FBI (supervised by his brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy) to wiretap and investigate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on suspicion of being a communist in order to undermine that Civil Rights leader; (d) was later criticized by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for ignoring civil rights issues; and (e) only grudgingly agreed to make a telephone call to get Dr. King, Jr. out of the Birmingham jail after members of the King family requested Kennedy's help,

WHEREAS, after the nearly 100 years of opposition to civil rights laws by Democrats, Republican Senator Barry Goldwater, who voted for the 1957 Civil Rights Act and ran for president against Lyndon Johnson in 1964, was unfairly criticized by hypocritical Democrats because Goldwater was opposed to only portions of the 1964 Civil Rights Act that he believed was an unconstitutional expansion of federal powers,

WHEREAS, Democrat President Lyndon Johnson could not have achieved passage of civil rights legislation without the support of Republicans due to the strong opposition of Democrats, and in his 4,500-word State of the Union Address delivered on January 4, 1965, Johnson mentioned scores of topics for federal action, but only thirty five words were devoted to civil rights and not one word about voting rights,

WHEREAS, it was Republican Senator Everett Dirksen from Illinois, not Democrat President Lyndon Johnson, who was key to the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and Dirksen was also instrumental to the enactment of civil rights legislation in 1957 and 1960, as well as the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Civil Rights Act of 1968 which prohibited discrimination in housing,

WHEREAS, the chief opponents of the 1964 Civil Rights Act were Democrat Senators Sam Ervin, Albert Gore, Sr. and Robert Byrd of West Virginia, a former "
Keagle" in the Ku Klux Klan, who made a 14-hour filibuster speech in the Senate in June 1964 in an unsuccessful effort to block passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act,

WHEREAS, because Republican Senator Everett successfully fought to pass civil rights laws in the face of strong opposition to civil rights laws by the Democrats, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. hailed Senator Dirksen's "
able and courageous leadership;" and "The Chicago Defender," the largest black-owned daily at that time, praised Senator Dirksen "for the grand manner of his generalship behind the passage of the best civil rights measures that have ever been enacted into law since Reconstruction,"

WHEREAS, the statement by Democrat President Lyndon Johnson about losing the South after passage of the 1964 civil rights law was not made out of a concern that racist Democrats would suddenly join the Republican Party that was fighting for the civil rights of blacks, but instead, was an expression of fear that the racist Democrats would again form a third party, such as the short-lived States' Rights Democratic Party,

WHEREAS, after Democrat President Lyndon Johnson expressed his concern that the racist Democrats in the South would be lost after the passage of the 1964 civil rights laws, Johnson's concern came true when Alabama's Democrat Governor George C. Wallace in 1968 started the American Independent Party that attracted other racist candidates, including Democrat Atlanta Mayor Lester Maddox,

WHEREAS, in March of 1968, while referring to the fact that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. left Memphis, Tennessee after riots broke out where a teenager was killed, Democrat Senator Robert Byrd called Dr. King a "
trouble-maker" who starts trouble, but runs like a coward after trouble is ignited, which motivated Dr. King to return to Memphis a few weeks later where he was assassinated on April 4, 1968,

WHEREAS, Democrats expressed little, if any, concern when the racially segregated South voted solidly for Democrats; yet unfairly deride Republicans because of the thirty-year odyssey of the South switching to the Republican Party that began in the 1970's with President Richard Nixon's "
Southern Strategy," which was an effort on the part of Nixon to get fair-minded people in the South to stop voting for Democrats who did not share their values, and who were discriminating against blacks,

WHEREAS, Republican President Richard Nixon began enforcement of Affirmative Action as a merit-based system to help African Americans prosper with his 1969 Philadelphia Plan (crafted by black Republican Art Fletcher) that set the nation's first goals and timetables, as well as his 1972 Equal Employment Opportunity Act that made merit-based Affirmative Action programs the law of our nation, but Democrats turned Affirmative Action into an unfair quota system;

WHEREAS, Democrat Senator Robert Byrd who was a fierce opponent of desegregating the military complained in one letter: "
I would rather die a thousand times and see old glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again than see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen of the wilds,"

WHEREAS, in the early 1970's, Democrat Senator Robert Byrd pushed to have the Senate's main office building named after a former "
Dixiecrat," Democrat Senator Richard Russell who was Senator Byrd's mentor and leading opponent of ant-lynching legislation, and in 2001 Senator Byrd was forced to apologize for using the "N-word" on television,

WHEREAS, Democrats did not denounce Democrat Senator Christopher Dodd who praised Senator Robert Byrd as someone who would have been "
a great senator for any moment," including the Civil War; yet Democrats denounced Senator Trent Lott for his remarks about Senator Strom Thurmond who was never in the Ku Klux Klan and, after he became a Republican, defended blacks against lynching and the discriminatory poll taxes imposed on blacks by Democrats,

WHEREAS, Democrats today demean and discriminate against blacks including (a) Democrat Senator Ted Kennedy who called black judicial nominees "
Neanderthals;" (b) Democrat Senator Harry Reid who slurred Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas as someone who could not write good English; (c) Joe Biden while he was a Senator who boasted that his home state of Delaware was a slave state; (d) Democratic Party operatives who depicted Maryland Lieutenant Governor Michael Steele on the Internet as a "Simple Sambo;" (e) cartoonist Jeff Danziger and Pat Oliphant who portrayed Secretary of State Dr. Condoleezza Rice as a "stooge" and a bare foot, "Ignorant Mammy;" (f) Democratic Senator John F. Kerry who denounced affirmative action on the floor of the Senate in the 1990's; (g) President Bill Clinton who - following in the footsteps of his mentor J. William Fulbright, a staunch segregationist - refused to enforce a court-ordered affirmative action plan while president and was himself sued for discriminating against his black employees while he was the Governor of Arkansas; and (h) Barack Hussein Obama while he was an Illinois State senator who provided funding for slum projects in Chicago that kept blacks trapped in rat and roach infested housing, as well as while he was a US senator voted against the minimum wage bill and wrote a letter of support for former Klansman Robert Byrd that helped that racist win re-election,

WHEREAS, the Democratic Party's use of deception and fear to intimidate black Americans into voting for Democrats is consistent with the Democratic Party's heritage of racism that included sanctioning of slavery and kukluxery - a perversion of moral sentiment among leaders of the Democratic Party; and the Democratic Party's racist legacy bode ill until this generation of black Americans,

NOW, THEREFORE, for the documented atrocities and accumulated wrongs inflicted upon black Americans, we submit this petition to the head of the Democratic Party, Barack Hussein Obama, for a formal proclamation of apology for the Democratic Party's 150-year history of racism.

It’s a sad and sorry legacy the democrat/communist party leaves America. This is a party that has no problem preaching hate in the streets if it helps them pass their agenda, an agenda openly opposed by the American people. Never before has our government so strongly ignored their bosses, the American people.

Remember too, this is a party that has no problem attacking other politicians, corporations, small businesses, and even private citizens, if that’s what it takes to have their way.

The new health care program, and all of the actions being taken by democrat/communists are just a continuation of a centuries old legacy of lies, hate, and violence. As we start the new decade, and the new year, a year that will see historic elections across the nation, and a real chance to start the process of reclaiming America, and the American way, we should take care to remember exactly who we are dealing with when we deal with members of the democrat/communist party.

We must continually remember, and remind all of our friends, the savage, and devious legacy that we have been afforded thanks to the democrat/communist party.
