Nancy Pelosi and her puppets, including the RINOs who revealed themselves at last week’s impeachment vote are extremely worried about their security.
A record breaking number of National Guard troops and military presence in Washington D.C. proves their near-paranoid fears.
As more Americans are learning the truths of left wingers’ arrests and roles in the Jan. 6 coordinated efforts to implement the civil unrest at the Capitol building, Pelosi’s Posse becomes increasingly frightened.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has beefed up security at all three D.C. regional airports with additional preparations being enacted.
The question for many Americans is simply, WHY?
The overwhelming majority of violence, destruction and injuries the past year came from paid Deep State leftist operatives and their followers. More evidence comes in daily from CREDIBLE news sources, witnesses and leaked law enforcement files that the Jan. 6th Capitol unrest was a planned act of such operatives.
Now we know from his own brother that the left wing radical, John Sullivan, who scammed with CNN at the Capitol on Jan. 6 riot, is the same Deep State paid activist based out of Utah.
Four months ago in August 2020, Sullivan was the insurgent who pointed to the White House during protest screaming with violent rhetoric:
“We … about to burn this s— down,” he screeched. “We gotta … rip Trump right out of that office right there,” he continued, adding “We ain’t about … waiting until the next election.” He then led the crowd in a chant of “It’s time for revolution.”
Now we know that 99.98% of the 250,000 Patriotic Americans who were there to support President Trump and Make America Great Again efforts were peaceful.
100% of Pelosi’s Posse were liars.
We also know that mainstream media coordinated with Deep State to immediately release their planned narrative that it was Trump’s fault for the violence that Pelosi’s Posse were involved in.
A few news organizations, such as PBS, jumped the gun and released their accusations against Trump BEFORE the president even arrived to speak.
Over 75 million Americans know this Inaguration is a sham…and a shame.
During Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle” on Friday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) insisted that there was not enough security during last week’s Capitol riot even though the police chief had been turned down six times asking for help in days prior.
“Now we’re going to become a militarized zone.” Paul said that the U.S. will have to “resist” the rapid loss of civil liberties during a crisis.
“…you know government. They either underreact or overreact,” Paul said. “So, I think there was too little security obviously last week, and now we’re going to become a militarized zone.”
“And they’re checking congressmen as they come in to see if they have a sharp pencil or a sharp pen. So, it’s gotten ridiculous. And so, we’ll see what happens, and whether it’s permanent.”
“But most people who write about civil liberties say that in times of war, or in times of stress, or in times of crisis, you lose your civil liberties very quickly. But it’s very difficult to get them back. Because government, once it grows large, never wants to give up on this.”
“But yes, we have to resist this. And we have to have security, obviously. But I think living in a wartime state with…we have troops in the Capitol. They’re staying in the Capitol. They’re platooning and camping in the Capitol.”
“So, I understand, that last week, we weren’t prepared and that was a real problem, and I regret everything that happened last week with that. But going forward, this week, I think we — there’s a danger of overreacting.”
Big Tech has launched a major assault on Americans’ right to free speech. In their most audacious attack, some of the most powerful big businesses in America joined together to force Parler off the Internet.
Parler, a social media site that rejects Twitter’s censorship policies, had millions of users until Google, Apple, and Amazon deplatformed the entire website, removing it from their app stores and web hosting service.
Americans must fight back against this blatant censorship. While Parler’s working through the courts to get back online, Big Tech continues to silence conservatives and trample our right to free expression.
Fortunately, independent bloggers such as CleverJourneys have found phenomenal growth in reporting what Big Tech try to censor and the “Mockingbird” Media dare not report.

How Liberals Have Been Totally Suckered Into Being Communists
How many of these original 45 goals can you identify as being achieved?
CongressmanA.S. Herlong JR. was a Democrat from Florida. A decade before this, Sen. Eugene McCarthy had conducted congressional hearings against the communists. Herein are the communist goals as published in 1963.
THE 45 COMMUNIST GOALS AS READ INTO THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD, 1963
Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35
January 10, 1963
Current Communist Goals EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Thursday, January 10, 1963
Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.
At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:
CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS
1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.
12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.
43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court.
If the powers behind Joe Biden, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have their way, the nation could very well have just experienced the final president elected in accordance with the United States Constitution and the Electoral College.
Biden, who takes his orders from the DNC, reads his speeches and makes comments exactly as written by the Deep State. Three times he has publically mentioned that military will “escort [Trump] from the White House with great dispatch” should the president refuse to leave. This has also been mentioned by none other than Hillary Clinton and Al Gore.
I wrote the above two paragraphs four months ago. Pay attention, in retrospect, we can see how what is happening today was planned out long before now. I also wrote:
Don’t forget about this summer’s meeting of over 100 high level Democrats and their sympathizers, paid by George Soros. They leaked to their puppet media that if Trump wins, they have contingency plans in place…and they need media’s (news and social media) continued cooperation.
Depending how close the delegate votes are, Dems can cross their fingers or try to use it as a stall tactic while they harvest more ballots from strategic locations. That’s easy with mail-in votes for old corrupt voter fraud pros.
Now here’s the most threatening part, according to the leaked report, they would immediately begin a national “street fight, not a legal battle.”
The way to get by with coup d’etat and the unlawful removal of a true president, is to begin by preparing citizens through tried-and-true methods used in other countries.
To see the preparation in action, one must merely pay attention to CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, The Atlantic, Washington Post and other usual propagandists.
Already there are social and news media stories posts describing how, while on election night it might look as if Trump won, close states will tip to Biden as all the mail-in ballots are “counted.”
“Trump Lost!” and “Trump Must Go!” will be the new slogans and chants taken to the streets and obediently echoed by media.
The leaked report explains Democrats are identifying “key influencers in the media and among local activists who can affect political perceptions and mobilize political action…[who could] establish pre-commitments to playing a constructive role in event of a contested election.”
The key to the coup d’etat has been in practice. Take it to the streets. Antifa, BLM and others will be ready-set-go. They’ve had practice and Deep State governors, mayors and DAs know what to do. Only the scale will be much bigger. In the meantime, the vote harvesters are ready with media ready to promote “count all votes” (even the fake ones).
When I heard of the storming of the U.S. Capitol this afternoon, my first thoughts were from what I learned about the Democrats plans while we were in Washington D.C. in July (while researching for a series of articles, Will Trump Be America’s Last True President?):
“This is planned. These are not the patriotic Trump supporters I just saw at his speech at the White House South Lawn earlier. These stormers don’t even look anything at all like them. These are Trojan Horses trying to stir things up.”
Like others watching, I felt it was unreal and not reasonable to believe the Capitol was this vulnerable. It was surreal.
Then, I read this post from my sister:
The Capitol building, arguably one of the most securely protected buildings in the nation. Snipers on the buildings around it.
Funny how some “protesters” so easily breached all layers of security today. Able to get into the gallery for a pic. Able to get into Pelosi’s office for a pic. Able to get right up behind the seat Pence uses and to get by the VP’s secret service agents?
Do you really believe anyone could so easily get into that chamber? If they could then that security team should certainly lose their job.
Perhaps, though, they were ALLOWED in. Get curious. Step back from the drama being perpetuated and ask questions. Don’t just take in what the media is feeding you.
Think about it critically.
If you’ve ever been to DC you’ve seen the guards, the snipers, the metal detectors on just a “regular” day.
Again, in September, I wrote:
The tactics used against President Donald J. Trump are from the exact same playbook the Deep State runs in other countries whose leadership they want out.
Oust a leader—even an elected one—through agitation and name it “democracy.” If enough sheep follow the paid agitators and media, it might work.
The only way to save the United States is with a voter turnout so overwhelming, not even the millions of harvested votes would be enough. And we thought the hanging chads were bad. That’s kindergarten.
The proof has been exposed in countless ways: Democrat leaders overlooking, disregarding and forgiving rioters, looters and destruction is at the top of the obvious list.
Closing churches, salons, and other businesses, or forbidding large groups of assembly while allowing bars, abortion clinics and casinos to open is another.
Organized, bought-and-paid for black and white new buses, scores of them identified as Black Lives Matter or Antifa coaches, are transporting frontline perpetrators to riot destinations. It’s a pronounced indicator to those who are not under the trance of socialist media and the radical Democratic agenda.
Hillary Clinton’s mentor and Barack Obama’s hero, Saul Alinsky wrote a book, the origins of today’s Democratic playbook, in which he said:
“The very first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”
The Silent Majority cannot be silent anymore. Patriotic Americans not only have inalienable rights, we have the solemn duty to protect those rights.
Our natural rights and freedoms are guaranteed and recognized by the American Constitution, and the government cannot violate them under any circumstances.
Every able American is required to perform certain actions in order for others to enjoy more freedoms.
Our Rights Were Given To Us By God
These natural rights are part of what it means to be a person. They were given to us by God. They can’t be denied or violated, but only under carefully limited circumstances according to our Constitution.
When our Founders wrote in the Declaration of Independence that “all men are created equal,” they were not ignoring the obvious differences that make people individuals—differences in appearance, personality, aptitude, skills, and character.
All humans are equal in the sense that we are born with certain inherent, natural, and inalienable rights. Those rights include “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
This essential equality means that no one–not George Soros, not Bill Gates, not Barack Obama, not Nancy Pelosi, not Joe Biden, or even Donald J. Trump–is born with a natural right to rule over us without our consent, and that our government is obligated to apply the law equally to everyone.
Voter integrity is vital. The rightful President should be that individual elected legally by Constitutional law. The Electoral College is our legal process.
Fear Not, We’re Americans
We must rid ourselves of the fear mindset that threatening powers want us to have. We must withstand this onslaught of evil and rally to the origin of our true national spirit.
We must rally to a standard of Americanism and solidly accept that condoning destruction, looting and evil is not that.
In essence, we must individually take a stand. Purposefully, deliberately and with forethought, we must engage those around us to get rid of this sense of fearful apprehension.
In order to protect the rights of our peaceful citizens, it’s sometimes necessary to infringe the rights of aggressors. The Founders understood that criminals who are a threat to the safety and property of others need to be prevented and stopped from exercising the right to move about where they please.
President Donald J. Trump, appearing before a crowd nearing a quarter of a million patriots, walked off the stage in the White House South Lawn at 1:11 p.m. telling the crowd, “Let’s march on to the Capitol.”
“Look at this,” President Trump observed, from the White House Ellipse. “This is our biggest crowd…this goes all the way back to even on the other side of the Washington Monument.”
Due to arrive at the mass gathering, Patriots stood in the cold for six hours waiting to hear from their president. Sons Eric and Don Jr., along with Lara Trump and Kimberly Guilfoyle, made brief, but motivating speeches an hour before the President appeared.
Lee Greenwood’s God Bless the USA song played as Trump walked on stage.
“The media will not show you the magnitude of this crowd,” Trump pointed to his audience, a sea of red, white and blue supporters. “The fake news doesn’t want anyone to know they came around the world, across the nation to be here for America.”
“The media is the single biggest problem we have,” Trump said. “We know. We know they helped rig the election like never before.”
“Thousands of thousands of votes were stolen like never before and the fake news media helped them and supported it.”
“We will never concede. You don’t concede when it was stolen. We will stop the steal…I’ve been in two elections and won both of them and this last one by over 12 million more votes than the first.”
“That’s 12 million more people than four years ago,” Trump said. “That’s never been done…we will not let them silence your vote. We are not going to let that happen.”
“I just spoke to Mike (Pence),” Trump said. “I told him it takes courage. Let’s hope he does what he should today.”
“They could use Rudy (Giuliani) back in New York City,” Trump laughed. “Rudy, your city is going to hell.”
“For years the Democrats have gotten away with this and now have been using the Pandemic as an excuse to rig the election. They’ve been getting away with this, but some weak Republicans too. These are weak Republicans. They are pathetic Republicans. But we know who they are now. This has all made us smarter.”
“You’re the smart ones. You’re the o rd who built this country, not the ones destroying it. You have to get your people (political leaders) to fight and we are going to primary them. This has been a pure theft of the American election.”
“By late in the evening I had won the election and then out of nowhere, like some great miracle there were these explosions of bullshit.”
In unison, likely the first time in history 250,000 people began chanting, “Bullshit. Bullshit. Bullshit…”
“We look at the facts,” Trump tried to quiet them down. “We do not have a free press. It suppresses speech and is threatening to our country. Some Republicans are like a boxer with his hands tied behind his back. They want to be so nice or they are afraid. You can’t keep a country if you are afraid. You fight.”
“After this, and I will be there with you, we will be walking from here to your nation’s capitol and we will be supporting your cause, peacefully and patriotically. History is going to be made.”
“The only back up left to the Democrats is the veto power of the President,” Trump reminded everyone after hearing of the rigged runoff Senate election in Georgia.”You have the dumbest governor in the United States. And that Secretary of State…”
Trump acknowledged the brave 13 senators led by Ted Cruz, Josh Howley and others.
Some of these weak politicians have allowed “China to destroy them,” the President asserted. “They wanted to give Americans $600. I said no we need to give them $2000, we will make it up and pay it back, but they need something to live on.”
“The American people do not believe the media anymore. Now the media goes silent. They suppress. That’s communism. We have a corrupt media. It’s suppression. They’ve lost all credibility.”
“The Supreme Court,” Trump mentioned. “It seems they are going out of their way to rule against us.”
“Every swing state, Democrats made illegal changes to the election. In Pennsylvania, the Secretary of State and state’s Supreme Court justices illegally abolished the signature verification eleven days before the election. Only the legislature can do that. They had 205,000 more ballots than there are voters in Pennsylvania. That number is even greater as we are finding out today.”
“Pennsylvania was defrauded. Over 8,000 dead people voted and some dead people requested ballots to vote.”
“More than 10,000 votes were illegally counted AFTER election day. Over 60 thousand ballots were returned BEFORE they were even mailed out.”
The most important thing you can do this week is to phone and email your senators (and congressional representatives) to object and reverse the stolen election so that the truth wins.
Please do this urgently for the sake of everyone and future generations.
Reports have surfaced that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is attempting to stop GOP Republicans from objecting to Joe Biden’s electoral college votes.
McConnell is pressuring senators to stand down and tow the line. In other words, he wants Biden in and Trump out.
However, Americans are contacting their senators demanding that they publically commit to supporting President Trump.
Patriots are organizing to oust any and all senators who go against Trump when their reelections come up again in 2022. This is called being “primaried.”
To call your U.S. member of Congress or Senators in D.C. to support President Trump now. Demand it. Dial 202-225-3121 (or 202-224-3121 if busy). By all means call Mitch McConnell. He needs to feel the heat for congratulating Biden as being “president-elect.”
It’s even better to call their direct line. For Senators, find each of their numbers here: http://bit.ly/2kko0Ao. For the direct line to your member in the House of Representatives:
Over 74 million who voted for Trump, and many from the other side of the political aisle, know that this election theft was the most scandalous event in our history.
The Deep State proved that it can destroy anyone at will. We’ve learned how much courts are prejudiced and corrupt.
China-Soros-Globalist Democrats have no limits when it comes to stealing elections. We are often reminded of how we are a country of laws, making us the envy of the world.
President Donald Trump continues to expose the damaging hypocrisy that politicians live under. This is now a nation of laws that allowed a violent, destructive plague like Antifa and Black Lives Matter to occupy, loot, burn and destroy. It’s permissible, and even encouraged, to topple monuments representing our history while law enforcement stand down. Criminals that were caught were soon released by George Soros owned District Attorneys.
Anyone–politicians, election officials, unions, businesses, journalists–who doesn’t oppose election fraud is showing their true communist colors.
Simple mathematics does not lie. It is impossible to have more ballots than registered voters, unless cheating and fraud occurred. Regardless of party affiliation, every American is entitled to a fair election and for their legal vote to count.
When legal American voters are cheated with election fraud and it is allowed to happen and go unpunished; if we are denied the right of a fair election, our republic will surely die.
Consider the algorithms that dumped President Trump’s votes into Biden column, (several millions according to forensic investigations). Trump won by as much as 78 to 80 million votes, with maybe 40 to 45 million for Biden.
There are 126 million registered voters. If Trump had 80 million, there are only 46 million leftover to vote for Biden, at the most. No wonder he stayed in the basement while the heat on Hunter Biden and China was blaring. He didn’t need to campaign knowing the voter fraud was in action. Even Nancy Pelosi said there were no worries because they “have taken care of the election.”
Call or email your Senators today. Copy them on this article to prove how serious we are. Send, echo and forward to all Patriots.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Second Amendment
In 1776, America’s Founders came together in Philadelphia to draw up a “Declaration of Independence,” ending political ties to Great Britain. Written by Thomas Jefferson, it is the fundamental statement of people’s rights and what government is and from what source it derives its powers:
WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness–That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed.
The Founders were declaring that we are all equal, and that we are defined by rights that we are born with, not given to us by government. Among those rights is the right to pursue happiness–to live our lives as we think best, as long as we respect the right of all other individuals to do the same. The Founders also declared that governments are created by people to secure their rights. Whatever powers government has are not “just” unless they come from us, the people.
The United States Constitution was drafted in Philadelphia in 1787 over the course of a humid summer. The windows of Independence Hall were shut to discourage eavesdroppers, and many delegates, who were mostly from out of town, wore and re-wore the same thick woolen garments day after day.
Benjamin Franklin, at age 81, was the oldest delegate, and had to be helped to sign his name. He was in considerable pain. Instead of walking, he arrived at Independence Hall on at least the first couple of days carried by four prisoners from the Walnut Street jail, who ferried him around the city in a sedan chair.
Thomas Jefferson never signed the Constitution because he was busy serving as the Minister to France in Paris.
John Adams, who was serving as Minister to Great Britain, never signed it either.
On September 17, 1787, only 39 of the 55 delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the document.
A handful of founding fathers, such as George Mason, Elbridge Gerry, and Edmund Randolph were present for the signing but refused to touch the document.
Others such as Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, and John Hancock—whose signature was such a standout on the Declaration of Independence—simply did not attend. When Henry was asked why he declined to attend the convention, he supposedly said, “I smelt a rat.”
The original Constitution signed on September 17th and ratified June 21, 1788 is only five pages long.
Three Latin phrases appear in the Constitution: pro tempore, ex post facto, and habeas corpus.
When the Constitution was written, English spellings had not yet been standardized. As a result, the document contains odd spellings, British spellings, and peculiar words that might look odd today but were acceptable at the time.
In the list of signatories, the word Pennsylvania is missing an “n.” In Article 1 Section 10, there’s an errant apostrophe attached to what should be its. There are spellings such as defence or labour and even “chuse” for choose.
James Madison is viewed as the “Father of the Constitution” despite his misgivings towards some of its content.
The Constitutional Convention lasted from May 25, 1787 through September 17, 1787. George Washington served as president of the Constitutional Convention, but did not speak during any of the proceedings until the Convention’s final day.
During the Convention, George Washington sat in a chair that had a representation of half a sun on the top, which Benjamin Franklin regularly gazed at during troublesome moments of the proceedings. Asked why, he said he was unable to decide if the sun was rising or setting. Only when the Constitution was signed did Franklin decide the sun was rising.
John Shallus, a clerk for the Pennsylvania General Assembly, physically wrote the Constitution down on parchment paper. The Convention paid him $30 for his services, which is worth about $800 today.
Rhode Island was the only state that refused to send delegates to the Constitutional Convention and was the last state to ratify the Constitution (May 29, 1790).
One of the Constitutional Convention’s debates was the title of the nation’s Chief Executive. One possible idea: “His Highness the President of the United States of America and Protector of their Liberties.” Eventually everyone settled on “The President of the United States.”
The U.S. Constitution is the shortest governing document of any nation as of 2020, and contains only 7 articles and 27 amendments. It is also the oldest; Norway’s comes in second and was codified in 1814.
“While many Americans might expect that our courts would intervene to stop such draconian and unconstitutional policies, Biden has a plan for that too,” states the National Rifle Association-Institute of Legislative Action. “In numerous appearances, Biden and Harris have both refused to reject the idea of packing the United States Supreme Court to ensure that their unconstitutional polices are not struck down.”
The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows:
Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.
The Electors shall meet in their respective States, and vote by Ballot for two Persons, of whom one at least shall not be an Inhabitant of the same State with themselves. And they shall make a List of all the Persons voted for, and of the Number of Votes for each; which List they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the Seat of the Government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate. The President of the Senate shall, in the Presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the Certificates, and the Votes shall then be counted. The Person having the greatest Number of Votes shall be the President, if such Number be a Majority of the whole Number of Electors appointed; and if there be more than one who have such Majority, and have an equal Number of Votes, then the House of Representatives shall immediately chuse by Ballot one of them for President; and if no Person have a Majority, then from the five highest on the List the said House shall in like Manner chuse the President. But in chusing the President, the Votes shall be taken by States, the Representatives from each State having one Vote; a quorum for this Purpose shall consist of a Member or Members from two thirds of the States, and a Majority of all the States shall be necessary to a Choice. In every Case, after the Choice of the President, the Person having the greatest Number of Votes of the Electors shall be the Vice President.

Hillary Clinton’s former vice president running mate Tim Kaine was on hand to watch the removal of another historical statue from the United States Capitol Building on Monday, Dec. 21, 2020.
This time it was the removal of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
The National Statuary Hall Collection in the Capitol includes 100 statues that honor two people from each state. Virginia’s other statue is America’s first president, George Washington.
The Lee statue was erected in the Capitol in 1909. According to various local Virginia news outlets, it is due to be relocated to the Virginia Museum of History & Culture.
Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam filed a request in January 2020 for a bill that would arrange for removing the statue and selecting a replacement.
In June 2020, during the apex of the China Virus pandemic, Congressional Democrats launched a strong push to remove Confederate statues from the Capitol grounds.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the statues had to be taken down because they pay “homage to hate, not heritage.”
Reps. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) introduced a bill that tried to send 11 statues back to their donated states or the Smithsonian within 120 days. Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) introduced a companion bill in the Senate.

Serious students of real history know Saul Alinsky, a mentor to Hillary Clinton and hero to Barack Obama, taught the rules of radicals to seize power by fueling resentment and hatred among people through various forms of “consciousness”—particularly class and race consciousness. A key action for this goal is to erase history.
Through people like Clinton, Obama, George Soros, Nancy Pelosi, and now Kamala Harris, this is a key role of playing the identity politics game.
Dividing the masses by instituionalized indoctrination (universities, public schools, movies, influence peddlers, and media) is a prime tool for totalitarians to control people.
The Obama years was the great catalyst to breed enough hatred, ill will, and destruction to alienate enough followers to be baited and mobilized to do the bidding of power elites, while claiming justice and equality.
In 2020 and 2021, millions of Americans will have rejected the news propaganda arms of Communism. They recognize Democrats have evolved into a party of Socialists and Marxism whose aim is to get rid of our Constitution and replace it with something more aligned to a Communist ideology.
A Virginia state commission recently voted on replacing the Lee statue with either Pocahontas or civil rights leader Barbara Johns, with the later having the most votes.
Johns was a schoolgirl who led a walkout at Farmville’s Moton High School in 1951 to protest the students’ substandard segregated school facilities. The Farmville case led to a landmark Supreme Court ruling that found officially segregated public schools unconstitutional.
Virginia’s General Assembly must still vote to approve Johns’ statue.
Virginia Congresswoman Jennifer Wexler was also in attendance to witness the removal.
In 2008, Florida replaced Gen. Edmund Kirby Smith with civil rights leader Mary McLeod Bethune.
