Marxists Have Taken Control of the California Democrat Party and Democratic Central Committee

By Capt Joseph R. John, September 23, 2019: Op Ed #449

In 2007, four U.S. Communist groups formed an alliance, in order to first take control of the Democrat Party at every level in California, then in a number of other states, with the ultimate goal of taking control of the Democrat National Committee.  The long term plans included the indoctrination of students at all levels of public-school education to convince millions of students that the government of the United States has been a massive failure, while at the same time portraying a positive image of Socialism.  The programmed goal was to gain the support of generations of naïve students, who would help the four Communists groups gain control of local, state, and the federal government.  The detailed plan is labeled The Inside/Outside Project.  Communists have always focused on younger generations.

 

             “Give me just one generation of youth and I'll transform the world.”

                                                                                                                         -  Vladimir Lenin

 

In order to support the four US Communist Groups' Inside/Outside Project, Tom Perez was selected as the Chairman of the Democrat National Committee.  Tom Perez was Obama’s Radical Left Labor Secretary, and longtime leader of Casa de Maryland, a Communist militant “Immigration Rights Group”  that lobbies to give Illegal Aliens the right to vote.  When Perez was the leader of Casa de Maryland, Hugo Chavez, the Communist President of Venezuela and protégé of Fidel Castro. was transmitting $1 million in donations to him each year, while directing Perez to use the funds to keep the southern border wide open.  

 

Perez has a long history of racist views, and has been quoted in many published articles, as stating  “White people should not be entitled to protection under the Voting Rights Act.”  In the 2012 campaign to re-elect Obama, for the first time in US history at the Democrat Party’s National Convention, Perez took “God” out of the Democrat Party’s Platform.  Ambassador Armando Valladares, the former US Ambassador to the UN For Human Rights, identified Perez as a racist who hates the Bible and is anti-Semitic.  He said Perez’ goals are to destroy the Free Enterprise System, the Christian Society of the US, and to turn the US into a Marxist nation.

 

Three of the four groups planning to crush the Free Enterprise System and eliminate the US Constitution are loyal to Beijing:

1. Communist Party USA (CPUSA)

2. Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS)

3. Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO)

4. The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) (the DSA is not closely connected to Beijing as the other three groups, but the DSA is connected to European and the Latin American Communist and Socialist Parties.)

 

There are roughly 100 Leftists, (Marxists, Socialist, Communists, Progressives, and Muslim Brotherhood supporters) voting as Democrats in the House of Representatives, and about 25 Democrats in the U.S. Senate voting in concert with that Leftist block in the House.  Trevor London’s DVD, ”Enemies Within”, identifies each of the leftists in the House and their loyalties to radical anti-American organizations.  They can be easily located by searching the Internet.  Many leftist members of Congress are pictured on the Internet, seated with their arms crossed, while the Pledge of Allegiance is being recited in the House of Representatives by standing members with their right hands over their hearts.

 

Today, The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) is strongest in the cities of New York, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, and in the states of Connecticut, Texas, Arizona, and California.

 

In San Diego, two CPUSA members (Carl Wood & Emiliana Sparaco) are currently running for the California Democratic Party Central Committee from Assembly Districts 76 and 80.  If elected, Wood will push the “Healthy California Act” providing “Medicare For All”, a $15/hour Living Wage, and the “Green New Deal”, at a cost of $93 trillion, or approximately $600,000.00 per household, according to a study co-authored by the former director of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

 

Emiliana Sparaco traveled to Russia in 2017 as part of a U.S. Communist delegation to celebrate the 100thAnniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution, the event was keynoted by Vladimir Putin.  In 2018, Sparaco led the effort to flip the 49th Congressional District from Republican to Democrat, which helped elect Mike Levin to Congress in the 49th.

 

In Northern California, around the Sacramento area, Democrat Representative Ami Bera, who now represents the 7th Congressional District and serves on the House Foreign Relations Committee.  She won several very close elections with the support of the Communist Party USA.

 

In 1996, Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS) leader Paul Krehbiel led the Communist/labor coalition that ousted conservative Republican Congressman “B1 Bob” Dornan from his previous safe Republican  27th Congressional District seat in Orange County.  That was the first step in a concerted effort by a Communist led campaign to turn all of Orange County’s once safe Republican Congressional Districts to Democrat seats.

 

In 2018, the Ballot Harvesting Law was passed by the Democrat controlled California Legislature.  Then in the 2018 Congressional election, the four above listed Communist organizations mobilized thousands of their operatives to execute the Democrat Ballot Harvesting program, by collecting millions of the Absentee Ballots from non-voting Californians, and illegally submitting them as being votes cast by California voters in certain Congressional Districts at the Registrar of Voters on election day.   

 

The four above listed Communist organizations substantially helped to defeat Republican Congressional candidates in 7 formerly safe Republican Congressional Districts.  Ballot Harvesting is illegal in every one of the other 49 states that consider it voter fraud, and if individuals in those states are caught perpetrating Ballot Harvesting, they would be indicted, tried, convicted, and possibly sent to prison. 

 

The Democrat Socialist of America (DSA), founded in 1992, is America’s largest Marxist organization, with 60,000 dues-paying members.  DSA has been strongly supporting Bernie Sanders, and been mobilizing the anti-Trump movements.  In California, the DSA will be running over 150 DSA members or allies in the March 2020 primary election, to elect members of the California Democratic Party Central Committee. 

 

Daraka Larimore-Hall, the California Deputy Democrat State Party Chairman, is a Marxist.  Having a DSA Marxist in such a key position, of the largest Democratic State Party in the United States, is foreboding.  Daraka Larimore-Hall has a large number of Socialist Democrat Central Committee members supporting him.  The American Bolsheviks article in The New American Magazine of May 20, 2019, outlines how the Marxist and Communists took over the once Patriotic Democrat Party; much of the above listed information was sourced from that article.

 

In 2020, California voters will be asked again by Democrat operatives, if they need help in filling out their Absentee Ballots, and if the voter says they are not going to vote, they will be asked again as they were asked in 2018, if their blank Absentee Ballots can be picked up.  California Republican candidates can oppose Ballot Harvesting in the 2020 primary and general elections by contacting every registered voter in their districts and request that they do not to give their blank Absentee Ballots to anyone who will be contacting them and will ask for their ballot. 

 

As they did in 2018, the Democrats operatives will fill out the blank Absentee Ballot with the name and address of the California resident who will not be voting, will illegally sign the voters name on the Absentee Ballot, and submit the Absentee Ballot at the Registrar of Voters on election day.  In Orange County, California alone, during the 2018 election, over 250,000 harvested ballots were submitted to the Registrar of  Voters on election day.   

 

Fred Whitaker, Chairman of the Orange County Republican Party, said in a note to supporters. “This (the loss) is a direct result of Ballot Harvesting allowed under California law for the first time. That directly caused the switch from being ahead (in 7 safe Republican Congressional races) on election night, to losing those elections two weeks later.”

Staff Sargent Travis Mills, USA (Ret) (Wounded Warrior) 82nd Airborne

By Capt Joseph R. John, September 12, 2019: Op Ed #448

The Worldwide War on Terrorism, Operation Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and the war in Afghanistan has resulted in: 


….Over 1,600 Combat Veterans returned home having lost at least one limb or more. Many more have lost appendages (toes and fingers).

….Over 160 Combat Veterans returned home with a total loss of sight, and thousands now have permanent impaired vision.

….Over 177,000 Combat Veterans have suffered hearing loss, and another 355,000 are suffering from tinnitus.

….Over 400,000 Combat Veterans have returned home suffering from PTSD.

….And an average of 22 Veterans are committing suicide every day.

 

In light of the above listed statistics we would like to share the below listed video of a quadruple amputee and courageous Wounded Warrior, Staff Sargent Travis Mills, USA (Ret) 82nd Airborne.

 

SSgt Mills often tells people he never dwells on the past.  Travis’ Motto: “Never Give Up, Never Quit!”

Travis’ “Mission in Life” is to demonstrate to other amputees that they can have a gainful life (swim, kayak, ski, play soccer, etc.).  

 

You can learn about Travis Mills Foundation @ TravisMill.org, and can donate in support of Travis’ rehabilitation program for amputees.

Americans owe Veterans, and especially Wounded Warriors, a debt of gratitude they will never be able to repay.  At one point in their lives, Veterans wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount “up to and including their lives.”

U.S. Naval Institute: "Has the Naval Academy Gotten Soft?"

By Capt Joseph R. John, August 29, 2019: Op Ed #447

This is a critique of an article published by the US Naval Institute  https://blog.usni.org/posts/2019/07/29/has-the-naval-academy-gotten-soft.  The author is suggesting the US Naval Academy (USNA) should have a more relaxed teaching environment, similar to the environment at Liberal Arts Colleges.  Some of the screened USNA applicants, illegally admitted as a specific percentages by sex and race of the Plebe class, in violation of a Supreme Court ruling, make up a percentage of Midshipmen matriculating at the US Naval Academy who, together with the USNA Female Mafia are continuing in their efforts to degrade the military character and training at the USNA.  

 

The Midshipman who wrote the article was lobbying to eliminate military drills/parades, and relax discipline at USNA; the article would never have been approved to be published by any of the former Superintendents.  The author and other Midshipmen ignore the fact that the US Naval Academy was established in 1845 for one purpose, and one purpose only, to commission US Navy & US Marine Corps Officers to lead the Navy & Marine Corps in combat operations against enemies who threaten the Republic.   

 

Unfortunately, the environment created over the 5 year term by the "Politically Correct" Superintendent, selected by the Obama administration, gave birth to many of the policies now instituted in the Naval Academy curriculum (believe it or not, with the safe spaces outside of classrooms for Midshipmen to cower in, when they are feeling too much pressure).  The military philosophy of a percentage of female and male Midshipmen has been intentionally and dramatically altered.  After the prescreened Superintendent was carefully selected, the destructive Social Experiment on Diversity was driven into every aspect of the life of Midshipmen and the curriculum at USNA.  

 

The military discipline and character of the Brigade of Midshipmen was dramatically changed over those 5 years, and the Female Mafia at USNA was permitted to have undue influence over policies, such as the selection of Distinguished Naval Academy graduates.  Those changes resulted in inappropriate changes in the tried and true military bearing, discipline, spit & polish, and training that produced outstanding Navy and Marine Corps combat leaders for over 160 years.  

 

The initial goal of the education, discipline, and training of the newly established USNA in 1845, was to train and develop courageous Navy and Marine Corps officers in the image and character of leaders like Porter, Sampson, Dewey, Lejeune, Leahy, Nimitz, Halsey, Spruance, King, Fletcher, Ramage, Radford, Burke, Krulak, Bringle, Shepard, Stockdale, Moorer, Pace, Ripley, Webb, etc. with the ability to lead the Navy and the Marine Corps, while protecting the sea lanes of communications and defending US military facilities worldwide.  

 

"Soft" is an understatement for what was being turned out in the altered educational program at USNA over that 5 year period---"clueless" of what the Naval Academy goals have been since 1845 would also be an appropriate way to identify some of the Midshipmen who trained during those 5 years.  After 8 years of the Obama administration degrading of the military character, discipline, and training of the US Armed Forces, USNA was caught up in the degradation.  

 

The Honor Code had been repeatedly compromised; females and football players who violated the Honor Code were retrained as many as 3 times for repeated violations, so that no female or football player would be discharged for an Honor Code.    

 

Unfortunately, it may be too difficult to re-establish the military discipline, character, spit & polish, training, and Honor Code that once existed at USNA.  It will be just as difficult to eliminate the “Politically Correct” form of instruction and training driven into the USNA curriculum by the Social Experiment on Diversity, monitored by the Female Mafia.  

 

Winston Churchill once famously stated that shinning shoes is the beginning of instilling military discipline—Midshipmen’s patent leather shoes are no longer shined, as they once were for over 150 years at USNA.

A Photo Documenting the Genocide of Christians by the Ottoman Empire

By Capt Joseph R. John, August 12, 2019: Op Ed #446

Beginning in April 1915 and continuing through 1923, 1.5+ million Armenians, 549,000 Assyrians, and 648,000 Greek Christians, in their ancestral homeland of Mesopotamia and Persia were systematically exterminated in the Genocide perpetrated by the rulers of Ottoman Empire; they unleased the Turkish Army, Kurdish Tribesmen, and Islamic Militants to murder every Christian, regardless of their ethnicity.   

Christians were brutally shot, beheaded, dismembered, crucified, drowned, buried alive, and their corpses were dumped into wells, in order to make the water supply undrinkable.  Some Christian villages armed themselves and tried to resist, with negligible success.  The most successful course of action was for Christians to flee their ancestral homelands, with the help of Christian missionaries, to legally migrate to the United States, Sweden, Austria, Germany, France, England, etc.   

 

The Genocide of Christians that began in 1915 has not ended.  It continues to this day in the Middle East, Europe, the United States, and Africa, with the support of The Muslim Brotherhood International Terrorist Organization.  The Muslim Brotherhood was founded by Hassan al-Banna in Egypt in 1928, and it subsequently facilitated the creation of countless Radical Islamic Terrorists groups worldwide.

 

The governments and parliaments of 31 countries, including Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Russia, as well as 49 of the 50 states in the United States, now recognize that the mass extermination of over 2.7 million Armenian, Assyrian, and Greek Christians by the Ottoman Empire from 1915 to 1923 was a crime against humanity, a Genocide.  The Genocide of Christians was instigated to exterminate every Christian in Mesopotamia and Persia from the face of the earth.

The Muslim Brotherhood helped Osama Bin Laden and Abdullah Azzam create Al Q’ieda in Egypt in 1988.  Since its founding, Al Q’ieda, supported by The Muslim Brotherhood, continued the Genocide of Christians throughout the world.  They have participated in destroying 2000 year old Christian churches, monasteries, documents, and irreplaceable art treasures in Turkey, Syria, Egypt, and the Middle East.  The Genocide of Christians and the destruction of Christian antiquities did not happen in Iraq while Saddam Hussein ruled; Saddam Hussein protected Assyrian Christians, their churches, and their monasteries from murderous attacks of Al Q’ieda and Radical Islamic Militants.    

 

Following the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 and the capture of Saddam Hussein, Al Q’ieda and Radical Islamic Militants went on a killing spree, and murdered thousands of Assyrian Christians in Iraq.  Leaders of Iraq's Assyrian Christian community estimated that over two-thirds of the Iraqi Assyrian Christians were either exterminated or driven from their ancestral homes on the Plains of Nineveh.  It was reported that whole neighborhoods of Assyrians Christians were forcibly evicted from the cities of Baghdad and Basra, and that their homes, historic Christian churches, and ancient Christian monasteries were destroyed.  Christians fled and sought safe havens in Europe.


In 2010, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi becomes the leader of ISIS and began the development of the long sought after Muslim Caliphate.  On April 7, 2013, with the help of The Muslim Brotherhood, he established the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in northern Iraq as the Muslim Caliphate.  On the Internet, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi recruited 36,500 foreigners trainees, and ISIS numbers swelled to 57,000+.   

 

The Greek Catholic Relief Agency rescued and housed 600,000 Middle East Christians of all ethnicities, but their repeated request to transfer some of the refugees to the United States were repeatedly rebuffed from 2008 to 2016.  During that same period, from 2008 to 2016, 900,000 Muslim refugees were recruited to enter the US through the UN Muslim Refugee Program.  During those 8 years, the FBI was prevented from interviewing those refugees to determine if they had any terrorist ties, by the Obama administration.

The FBI reported that over 300 young refugees from the 
UN Muslim Refugee Program who had been previously been placed on a fast-track program to become US Citizens, left the US to join and train with ISIS, Al Q’ieda, and Radical Islamic Terrorists.  They participated in forcing Syrian and Assyrian Christians to kneel in order to be shot behind their heads, to behead them, to dismember the bodies of children, to drown Christians in cages, to burn Christians at the stake, to bury them alive, throw them from high buildings, and crucified Christians.

One quarter of the Iraqi Syrian and Assyrian Christians who were able to flee from the ISIS Genocide, sought refuge in Turkey, Kurdistan, Europe, and the United States.  The Genocide of the Syrian and Assyrian Christians over the last 31 years resulted in over 500,000 Assyrian Christians being killed, kidnapped, or displaced as refugees, and 600,000 Christians refugees welcomed by the Greek Catholic Relief Agency.

Al Q’ieda, ISIS, and other Radical Islamic Terrorists who have been killing Christians in the Middle East have repeatedly broadcast on the Internet, that they are making their way to the United States to initiate attacks.  
The wide open southern border is attracting ISIS, Al Q’ieda, and many of foreign terrorists from 60 countries who were trained by ISIS; they pose a serious National Security threat to the United States. 

The FBI is investigating over 2000+ terrorist cases, in all 50 states, and evaluating their plots to kill Americans.  The FBI has gained convictions in 549 Radical Islamic Terrorist plots to kill Americans on US soil; 402 of those Radical Islamic Terrorist defendants were foreign born immigrants or refugees.  Former FBI Director James Comey, said that fifteen percent (15%) of the 2000+ terrorist cases that were under investigation by the FBI, can be attributed to be coming from the 900,000+ Muslim refugees who entered the US from 2008 to 2016.

The
re were 219 attacks in 82 cities in United States by Radical Islamic Militants since 2008.  The attacks by Muslim Militants in the United States since 2008 resulted in killing 136 Americans, wounding 423 Americans, and in the rape of many American women.

The US Border Patrol reported that Illegal Aliens from the Middle East have been detained at the southern border while trying to enter the United States, among the 100,000 Illegal Aliens who have been detained at the border each month.  A number of Illegal Aliens from the Middle East have been entering the United States each month, undetected, among the additional estimated 200,000 Illegal Aliens who escape detention every month at the wide open border, and enter the United States illegally.

It is critically important to build a border wall to close the wide open southern border in order to protect Americans from the Radical Islamic Terrorists who stated they were on their way to the United States. 
 One wonders how many Radical Islamic Terrorists who crucified Christians in the Middle East over the last 16 years have already entered the United States illegally.

Is The Typical Mass Shooter A White Male? Think Again

By Capt Joseph R. John, August 5, 2019: Op Ed #445 

The dishonest news media is at it again, trying to brainwash Americans into thinking that all mass shooters throughout the years have been by white male supremacists.  The photos and information in the below listed article will disprove the outright lies by the current crop of Democratic Presidential Candidates, and the Left of Center Liberal Media Establishment in their attempts to terrify Americans, and blaming yesterday’s 2 mass shootings on President Trump, because he wants to secure the wide open southern border.  

 

Despite the fact that there were 32 mass shootings when Obama was the occupant of the Oval Office---the press found it inconvenient to blame Obama for any of those 32 mass shootings.  There were also many mass shootings during the Clinton and Bush Administrations, yet the Left of Center Liberal Media Establishment didn’t blame President Clinton nor President Bush.  

 

Many of the activities that once took up the free time of America’s youth in their formative years have dramatically changed, and the interrelation between America’s youth, their classmates, with their schools, and with their parents has also changed, especially in families with fatherless homes.  Sand lot baseball, Boy Scouts after-school activities, attending the Boys Club activities, after school church activities, 4H Club activities, church and Boy Scout summer camps, bicycles riding, roller skating on sidewalks, long hikes in the woods, playing outside with friends until dark, kite flying, fishing, basketball in the playgrounds, etc., seem to have all gone by the wayside for America’s youth going through their school years. 

 

With the proliferation of high technology, now America’s youth are less active outdoors, interrelating less with their classmates, and more involved in computer games, cell phones activities, watching TV, texting, and surfing the Internet.  With the removal of prayers, the pledge to the flag from schools, and the elimination of US History courses once traditionally taught in schools now substituted by a false version of Common Core US History, young men in fatherless homes lack proper guidance and leadership.  

 

Many young men with fathers missing in their lives, along with the lack of religion once taught in church, and a leftist Progressive philosophy taught in school, developed their twisted ideology by evaluating issues on the Internet, watching TV, and believing the leftist ideology being taught to them in the classroom. The two shooters in the mass shootings yesterday were on opposite sides of ideologies as listed below.

TYPICAL MASS SHOOTER A WHITE MALE? THINK AGAIN

Photo montage shows every suspect who executed 2019 attacks

 

 

The attacks in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, over the weekend that have taken at least 31 lives have put a spotlight on the problem of young, isolated white men carrying out mass shootings.

Photo montage also shows the two suspect in 2019 mass shooting attacks---it also includes all the shooters, they are not hardly all white racists like the left of center liberal media is lying about on the air waves----its just the opposite— defined as four or more people shot or killed — shows the problem isn’t confined to white men or motivations of white supremacy.

If there’s a thread, it’s young men whose biological father was missing in their lives. After the Parkland school massacre in Florida, the Heritage Foundation cited a study showing that among the 25 most-cited school shooters since Columbine, 75 percent were reared in broken homes.  Most, according to psychologist Peter Langman, an expert on school shooters, came from homes that also experienced infidelity, substance abuse, criminal behavior, domestic violence and child abuse.

 

More than 520 people have died in mass shootings , according to the Gun Violence Archive, and at least 2,000 have been injured.

The Gateway Pundit noted that more than 140 mass shootings remain unsolved largely because no one will give descriptions to the police.

At least 20 of the mass shootings this year were in “Chicago” resulting in 293 deaths, yet the left of center liberal media establishment, Progressives, and the Democrat Candidates For President continue to ignore.  Over the weekend in Chicago, seven more people were killed and 53 were injured in shootings.

As WND reported earlier Monday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a leading 2020 presidential candidate, echoed many of her Democratic colleagues in casting blame on President Trump for the shootings, charging he’s been giving a “wink and nod and smile” to white supremacy.  Yet the suspect in the Dayton, Ohio, shooting, said he was a supporter of Elizabeth Warren and described himself as a Socialist. 

 

The suspected El Paso shooter clearly portrayed himself as a white supremacist on social media and in his “manifesto,” but he also espoused “Progressive” ideas, such as a universal basic income and radical environmentalism, but the press conveniently ignored it.

Rival candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders explicitly tied the shootings to Trump’s “language,” saying “the president has to stop the racism and that xenophobia immediately.”  Yet the mass shooting of Republican Congressmen practicing baseball in Virginia on June, 17, 2017 and gravely wounding Congressmen Steve Scalise, was executed by a Bernie Sanders supporter who hated Republicans, but the press conveniently ignored that fact.  

In a Fox News interview Monday afternoon, Catholic theologian Jonathan Morris said “white supremacy” and racism are “consequences of an empty soul.”  “Because, you go toward something to fill you up. Human beings, we were made for love and for purpose. And when we don’t find it, then we look for something,” he told Dana Perino.

“And [white supremacy and racism] are cheap substitutes, but they have deadly consequences.”

 

 

Greg Hunter’s Interview with Former CIA Officer Kevin Shipp

By Capt Joseph R. John, July 29, 2019: Op Ed #443 

By clicking on the below listed link, you will be able to listen to a riveting interview of former CIA Officer Kevin Shipp; he is a counterintelligence expert who worked on the seventh floor at Langley as protective staff for then-CIA Director William Casey. 

 

This is a CRITICAL listen!  It is an analysis that covers a range of sensitively important topics, improperly reported by the left of center liberal media establishment.  It is about one hour long, but it would be well worth your time to listen to an American who is still serving his country.  For the last 5 years, Kevin has been a strong supporter of the Combat Veterans For Congress.

Kevin previously stated, that there is a - huge - grassroots movement brewing in our country.  These are not fanatics; they are pastors, priests, moms and dads, good government employees, military men and women, and CIA officers he worked with, who cannot speak for themselves.  Kevin has been speaking out, and has felt repercussions for speaking out, including affecting his retirement pension.

Kevin discusses the attempt by specific individuals to take down the President of the United States (prior to and after his election), the serious National Security Threat posed by the massive and increasing national deficit, the corruption of the deep state motivated by money and supported by the left of center liberal media establishment, the unauthorized surveillance of American citizens by the NSA, etc.

The attempt to turn the Republic into a Socialist State is being funded by Nazi collaborator, George Soros, driven by the Progressive Coalition in control of the House of Representatives, coordinated by Marxist Tom Perez in control of the Socialist Democratic Party, and supported by many subversive and dark forces in the nation, they include, but are not limited to:

 

Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison’s promoting ANTIFA, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra promoting MICA, the Communist Party USA, The Muslim Brotherhood International Terrorist Organization, the Marxist Leninist Communist Workers Party Front—“ANSWER”,  Black Lives Matter, Bob Avakian’s Revolutionary Communist Party, LA RAZA, the Communist Party’s Progressive Unity Fund, CAIR, The Communist Workers Party, The New Black Panther Party, the hard core Marxist Leninist organization—"World Workers Party”, the Democrat Socialists of America, the Chicago based Communist Industrial Workers of the World, SIEU, Bill Ayer’s Weatherman Underground, Color of Change, Al Sharpton’s “National Action Network”, Women’s Radical Group “Ultra Violet”, the Communist open borders organization “Casa de Maryland”, Indivisible, Act Blue funding Leftist to run for Congress, By any Means Necessary, The Advocate Fund, etc.

 

After you have had the opportunity to listen to Kevin’s interview, you may want to share it with your fellow Americans who would join with the Combat Veterans For Congress in support of the Republic, the Bill of Rights, the US Constitution, and The Free Enterprise System, and who are opposed to turning the United States into a Socialist State.

America's Social Contract

By Capt Joseph R. John, July 10, 2019: Op Ed #441

Every American citizen who values their precious freedoms outlined in The Bill of Rights, should read the article listed below by Dr. Sam C. Holiday, USMA ’48, Col USA (Ret), especially millions of millennials who for over 20 years, had been misled in classroom instruction by leftist teachers and professors about success of Socialism in comparison to the failure of the Constitutional Republic of the U.S.  

 

Socialist governments have suppressed, enslaved, and murdered hundreds of millions of people throughout the world for over 100 years in Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Russia, Castor’s Cuba, Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela, Mao’s China, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, Ho Chi Minh’s Vietnam, Nyerere’s Tanzania, Jaruzelski’s Poland, Najibullah’s Afghanistan, Ortega’s Nicaragua, Ceausescu’s Romania, Dubcek’s Czechoslovakia, Zinvkov’s  Bulgaria, Tito’s Yugoslavia, etc.  Most recently, The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights issued a report on Venezuela, noting that between January 2018 and May 2019, Nicolas Maduro’s Socialist thug-regime murdered nearly 7,000 people.

 

Millennials should have been able to easily compare the failures of brutal Socialist regimes in the 37 countries where they gained control, with the success of the Founding Fathers Constitutional Republic, which has freed so many oppressed people in the world and received so very little in return.   Unfortunately for over 20 years, the Common Core Curriculum forced upon states by the Department of Education required the use of revised US History textbooks, funded by George Soros, that lie about the remarkable History of the Republic.

 

The below listed narrative is presented to provide a more in depth understanding of the creation of the Constitutional Republic, and the three Pillars of the Republic; it is the glue that strengthened the Republic for 243 years.  The three Pillars are: 

 

  1. The Declaration of Independence which formed the moral basis of government in the new Republic.

 

  1. The  US Constitution that sets the legal basis for the government, of and by the people. 

 

  1. Together, they check and balance each other, to establish America’s unwritten “Social Contract”, i.e. what is right and legal in the  government, of and by the people, of the Republic. 

 

The genius of the Founding Fathers was to combine the Western idea of God, with the Chinese concept of nature, and the teachings of Confucius, in order to form a new and unique government, of and by the people, that established the “Social Contract”---an unwritten agreement between the Colonists and their new government.

 

The Founding Fathers were convinced that a government founded on the basis of the Three Pillars of The Republic secures and fosters a nation for future generations of Americans that would bring peace, justice, order, safety, and happiness in the Republic. 

Members of the US Armed Forces and Law Enforcement Officers have always sworn to protect and defend one of the pillars that established the legal basis for the government of the Republic, the US Constitution.

The Founding Fathers believed as long the ”Social Contract” continued, it would foster a Republican form of government, and a way of life, that would create a stable noble nation.

 

The Founding Fathers understood the meaning of “Equality”; it is not what Socialists have been indoctrinating America’s youth for the last 20 years that equality means.  Equality does not mean that everyone is the same, that everyone has the same duties, everyone has the same rights, nor the same responsibilities.

 

The Founding Fathers knew that human beings are not equal in background, upbringing, physical and intellectual endowments, nor motivation.  Equality, as referred to in the US Constitution, meant that all humans beings have received their natural rights from “God”, which are inherent and inalienable, and that includes life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, property, and religion.

In the below listed article, Dr. Holiday explains how the complex interrelationships developed between the government and people for 243 years, and why America’s “Social Contract” has been so important. 

 

For the last 20 years, the Pillars of the Republic have been under attack by the Progressives, Socialists, Marxists, Communists, The Muslim Brotherhood, and the Democrat Socialist Party run by Tom Perez, who was appointed as the Chairman of the Democrat National Committee by Barrack Obama before he left office. 

Perez has a long history of anti-white views, including making the declaration “White people should not be entitled to protection under the Voting Rights Act.”  Perez was the longtime leader of a Communist, militant open border immigration group, Casa de Maryland, that since 2000, has continued to work toward giving Illegal Aliens the right to vote.  Support for Illegal Aliens voting rights was also voiced by Nancy Pelosi.  Her most recent quote: “You need to vote for Democrats, otherwise Illegal Aliens will lose their rights.”

Hugo Chavez, the former Communist President of Venezuela, and protégé, of the Communist Dictator Fidel Castro, sent $1 million to Perez’s Casa de Maryland annually, with instructions to keep the southern border wide open.  Perez worked to keep the southern border wide open by applying Chavez’s funding, and continued for the last three years, with the help of Pelosi, Schumer, and Rinos in Congress.
  

Perez’s Democratic Socialist Party refusal to help stem the massive flow of illegal immigrants invading the United States, has resulted in over one hundreds thousand Illegal Aliens from 52 countries being interdicted each month, meaning that two hundred thousand Illegal aliens entered the US illegally without being interdicted each month.  The Illegal invasion of over 300,000 Illegal Aliens each month is resulting in the Republic close to losing its sovereignty, and massive drug smuggling has gotten completely out of control.

According to the Center for Immigration Studies, 35,000 African migrants have arrived in Central America, and are now en route to enter the United States illegally; failure to quarantine those 35,000 African migrants is posing the dangerous threat of an Ebola epidemic to the lives of all Americans.   

The Common Core Curriculum’s vilification of US History continues, and its indoctrination of the benefit of Socialism has resulted in millions of millennials demonstrating in the streets against Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Assembly, and against closing the wide open southern border.  Millennials are instead demonstrating in support of Socialists candidates for president, for post-birth abortion, free health care for all Illegal Aliens, and open borders, resulting in the enslavement of female children for prostitution. 

 

By misleading and polarizing America’s youth for the last 20 years, the dark forces in the nation, funded by George Soros, with the support of Leftists, Progressives, Socialists, Marxists, Communists, The Muslim Brotherhood, and the Democrat Socialist Party have been intent on destroying the Republic the Founding Fathers created, and The Free Enterprise System.  They are intent on replacing the Constitutional Republic, with a Socialist State controlled by a very few brutal and oppressive Marxist leaders.

 

That polarization currently being fostered by the left of center liberal media establishment, Progressives, Socialists, Marxists, Communists, The Muslim Brotherhood, and the Democrat Socialist Party, are undermining the unity that the Founding Fathers achieved, by they fostering the 3 Pillars of the Republic---unity is close to being lost.  

 

In order to restore the unity of the American people and the Republic in a government, by and for the people, that the Founding Fathers envisioned, Patriotic Americans should come together to re-invigorate America's “Social Contract” by supporting a number of national initiatives to:

 

  1. Provide the US Border Patrol with support they need to build a wall to close the wide open Southern Border.

 

  1. Put pressure on 50 State Education Departments and County School Boards, to eliminate the Common Core US History curriculum, with the revised US History textbooks that degrade, misrepresents, and eliminates positive facts about the remarkable History of the Republic.  

 

  1. Support identity measures to prevent massive voter fraud perpetrated in 2016 and 2018, by putting pressure on elected legislators to require all voters to present the same type of IDs in order to vote at the polls that is required to board an aircraft, cash a check, obtain medical treatment at a hospital, check a book out of a library, etc.

 

  1. Oppose “Political Correctness” in all its forms, in order to prevent the abridgment of “Freedom of Speech 

 

There are many more initiatives The American People must develop and support to “Right the Ship of State”.  We encourage you to read Dr. Holiday’s below listed article.

America's Social Contract 

 

America's Social Contract is an unwritten agreement between Americans and their government. It not the Constitution alone that is the foundation of America. The Declaration of Independence reflect the soul of the American nation and forms the moral basis of government among Americans. The Constitution states what is legal. Together they check and balance each other to establish the Social Contract of America. The Declaration is a clear and concise statement of the principles based on custom and tradition that caused the American Revolution, and served as the basis for an appeal under British rights to natural law (Sacred Authority) for the creation of the new nation from the former colonies. It asserted that man-made laws have limits, set by "self-evident truths based on the laws of God and nature" which is supreme. This is the Social Contract that combines what is legal and what is right. Although this concept was based on the Western idea of God it has much in common with a Chinese concept based on nature and the teaching of Confucius. 

One meaning of equality is that no one is by nature, i.e. God, the ruler of another; this is specified in the Declaration. But equality does not mean everyone is the same or has the same duties and responsibilities. Moreover, those who rule, i.e. members of the body politic, must earn that privilege through character, dedication and hard work. Equality also  means all humans have natural rights from God, which are inherent and inalienable, and include life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, property, and religion. The body politic is to insure there for everyone living in the country. 

To secure these rights, human beings consent to leave the state of nature and form a government of Secular Authority, i.e. a state, which protects their rights through such means as national defense, local security, criminal laws, civil laws, and minimal support for the disadvantaged. This concept has been, and is still, misunderstood because of  the phrase "all men are created equal". The Founders knew that human being are not equal in background, upbringing, physical and intellectual endowments, or motivation. But they held the Stoic-Augustinian view that the only equality of importance was the human soul before God, and thus secular differences were unimportant. But they knew that success was most likely when the best held the reins, and therefore they accept the concept of the body politic. In the 21st century many have another view: that equality means uniformity of outcomes with diversity, not merit, being the primary goal.

The right to consent requires the agreement of the individuals who have accepted the Social Contract, and who except the Secular Authority of  government (rule of Law) to check and balance Sacred Authority (what individuals consider right), in return for having their free will and freedom secured by government. The representatives of the majority of the body politic establish  rules, regulations and laws, and  maintain  and administer them as the result of elections within the body politic. Should a government become unjust, violating rather than protecting rights (loses the Mandate of Heaven, or violate the Social Contract), the people may exercise their right to change the government. Of course skillful politics can twist this concept for very different purposes. The Founders saw it as a way to decentralize governance to the lower possible level, while the Chinese saw it as a way to justify authoritarian rule. 

The Founders thought that government founded on the basis of these principles would secures and fosters a republican way of life for America that would bring peace, justice, order, safety, and happiness to all of those living in the United States. But the polarization currently in the United States reflects the fact that the unity which the Founders wanted to achieve by these principles has been lost, and America's Social Contract has been violated.

It is now up to Americans to rebuild America's Social Contract. If this is not done America will continue on the cycle into decline and decay, but with knowledge, determination, skill and will Americans can reverse the cycle and have the united nation with liberty and justice for all that the Founders visualized.

Not Guilty Verdict for SEAL Chief Eddie Gallagher, USN

By Capt Joseph R. John, July 3, 2019: Op Ed #440

On November 24, 2018, Lcdr Ed Hiner, USN (Ret) (SEAL) contacted the Combat Veteran For Congress seeking support, and explained that Chief Edward Gallagher, USN (SEAL), a highly decorated Combat Veteran who had completed 8 combat deployments to both Iraq and Afghanistan and had been awarded two Bronze Star Medals (both with Combat “V”), a Navy and Marine Corp Achievement Medal (with Combat “V”), and other medals for his combat service during 19 years of Honorable service, was being charged with crimes by several poorly performing SEALs in his team, who were lying about Chief Gallagher’s actions in Iraq. 

 

Those SEALs, who were deployed with Chief Gallagher’s SEAL Team SEVEN, had been removed from the fight in Mosul, Iraq by Chief Gallagher because they were not performing adequately in extremely heavy and brutal combat; they subsequently charged the Chief with crimes and using drugs in combat.   Lcdr Hiner, whom we respect, assured us that Chief Gallagher was not guilty of those charges and the disgruntled SEALs who had been removed from the fight, were not telling the truth.  We believe every member of the US Armed Forces deserves the presumption of innocence until proven guilty, so we were inclined to get involved.

 

Upon further investigation, we learned that in 2017, the year Chief Gallagher was accused of crimes by those disgruntled Navy SEALs, who had been removed from combat because of their inadequate performance, that the Chief had been nominated as SEAL Sailor of the Year by the officers in command of SEAL Team SEVEN.  Those officers had been deployed with Chief Gallagher in Iraq (when the subject crimes were supposed to have occurred---it just did not add up, which further led me to believe we should get involved).  Chief Gallagher was ultimately selected 2017 SEAL Chief of the Year by his SEAL Command in Coronado.  

 

We also learned the prosecutor in the Court Martial of Chief Gallagher was not a highly experienced and well respected Navy Captain, instead the prosecutor was an inexperienced and very aggressive Navy Lieutenant, who was leaking misleading information to the media.  Later in the case we learned the Lieutenant had devices planted to in E-mail sent to the defense attorney, to spy on Chief Gallagher’s defense.  

 

The Navy Lieutenant had the Chief incarcerated in solitary confinement in a brig filled with prisoners who were convicted of pedophilia, guilty of sex crimes, and were convicted of other serious crimes.  His wife, children, and his attorney had very limited access to him.  The prosecutor made sure Chief Gallagher had very limited access to his attorney, which prevented him from having adequate time to prepare for his defense in the pending Article 32 Hearing.  

 

The Lieutenant allowed NCIS to treat the Chief’s family in a manner that was unacceptable.  In Chief Gallagher’s absence while he was incarcerated in solitary confinement, his family was improperly treated by the NCIS Agents when they aggressively assaulted his residence.  It was my opinion that the actions of those NCIS Agents should have been investigated for the manner in which they treated Chief Gallagher’s wife, Andrea, and his innocent children (age 17 and 9), who were dragged into the street in their underwear at gunpoint.   

 

Because Chief Gallagher had very limited access to his attorneys and did not have adequate time to prepare for his defense in the Article 32 Hearing, I told Lcdr Hiner that I would agree to support Chief Gallagher’s defense by helping to raise funds to help cover Chief Gallagher’s legal fees.  We transmitted the reasons why we were supporting the legal defense of Chief Gallagher by emailing information to our supporters, and asked the recipients of those emails to make donations to Chief Gallagher’s defense fund.

After our early request for financial support for Chief Gallagher went out to our supporters, many SEALs and Navy personnel on our distribution list informed us that they would be making donations.  By December 11, 2018, the Legal Defense Fund went to $117,289, toward the initial goal of $250,000; we have no idea how many of our supporters donated.

 

An email was also forwarded to The White House requesting the case be reviewed.  We hoped that President Trump would be properly briefed about Chief Gallagher’s case.  We also referred a well-known JAG attorney who offered to join the defense team, Pro Bono, to Chief Gallagher’s wife, Andrea, through the help of Lcdr Hiner.

 

Chief Gallagher deserved the right to a robust defense to protect his life, his family, his Navy retirement, and deserved broad support for his many years of combat service, and in his defense of the Republic.  The heavy and brutal combat that Chief Gallagher had been involved in during his navy career, was not the type of military service most Veterans have ever been involved in.

 

From the very beginning, Cong Duncan Hunter has been very much involved in the providing defense of Chief Eddie Gallagher, and his below listed comment and evaluation of the case, are simply outstanding.
 

We appreciate the fact that Lcdr Ed Hiner, USN (Ret) (SEAL) encouraged us to support Chief Gallagher and helped raised funds to cover the cost of his legal defense.  We are gratified with the “not guilty verdict” and understand that one of Chief Gallagher’s accusers has also left the Navy.  It is our hope that Special Warfare Group ONE will restore Chief Gallagher to full duty.  

 

We wish Chief Gallagher, his wife Andrea, and their children a well deserved, and Happy Fourth of July!

HUNTER STATEMENT ON NOT GUILTY VERDICT OF CHIEF EDDIE GALLAGHER

 

 

WASHINGTON, DC -- Congressman Duncan Hunter (CA-50) made the following statement today regarding the not guilty verdict in the case of Chief Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher:

 

“The Gallagher case has been shameful from the start and, while much damage has been done, I am confident that Chief Gallagher, Andrea, their children and the entire family has the fortitude and determination to rebuild their lives and move on to the next chapter.  That being said, the fact that this situation would happen to an American hero is nothing short of a disgrace for the entire military justice system.

 

“On very circumstantial and limited physical evidence, the Navy felt it appropriate to charge Chief Gallagher with the murder of an ISIS terrorist, accomplishing nothing but destroying the military career of a decorated Navy SEAL and giving every warfighter cause for concern that the nation they serve does not have their back.

 

“Let’s review how the Navy prosecution has conducted themselves in this situation.  When Chief Gallagher was arrested, his children were pulled from their home in their underwear at gunpoint.  Gallagher was placed in solitary confinement and then in a general population with pedophiles and other sexual offenders before being formally charged.  He was provided very limited access to his attorney, family and medical treatment for seven months and it literally took an act of the President of the United States to place him in an appropriate confinement environment.  The prosecution violated court orders by leaking misleading details to the media and misled the White House and Members of Congress regarding video evidence that actually exonerates Gallagher rather than implicating him.  The Navy delayed in providing exculpatory evidence to Gallagher’s defense and then proceeded to embed malware into emails sent to Gallagher’s defense attorney and the media.  Even after the shocking admission on the stand by a witness that it was he who killed the ISIS fighter and not Chief Gallagher, the Navy prosecution still moved forward with this unnecessary trial.  The Navy’s actions in this case are shameful, detrimental to good order and adversely affects the morale of our warfighters.

 

“This not guilty verdict was more than warranted.  While this case is now closed, the Navy will still be held accountable for their actions in this matter and I fully intend to continue working to protect America’s warfighters against a military justice system that is more focused on career advancement and sensational headlines as opposed to implementing and exercising the rule of law.”



On The Fourth of July, Americans Celebrate Their Independence

By Capt Joseph R. John, July 4, 2019: Op Ed #439

On the first Fourth of July in 1776, delegates from the 13 Colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, drafted by Thomas Jefferson.  On that day, American Colonists celebrated securing their individual freedoms from oppressive British Rule and their freedom from the heavy taxes levied on them by The King of England without representation.  

Since 1776, Americans have been celebrating the Fourth of July as the birth of American Independence, and their achievement of self-rule by and for the people.  Since 1776, the annual celebration on July fourth has been called  “Independence Day.”  Each year on Independence Day, Americans express their support for the freedoms they enjoy and how blessed they are to live in a Constitutional Republic.  

In their celebration on the Fourth of July, American citizens also express their support for governance under the US Constitution, self rule by and for the people, and for their support for one nation under God.   

Americans appreciate the unlimited opportunities they have to improve their stations in life, because of their individual freedoms, and because of their opportunity to establish a new business venture under The Free Enterprise System.  Americans today, even low income citizens, have more benefits and better living standards than royalty lived under 100 years ago, and they also have better living standards than most citizens in other countries throughout the world. 

On the Fourth of July, the American Flag is proudly flown throughout the nation by millions of Americans.  By doing so, they are expressing their support for the Republic, and their unity under the “Flag” that ties Americans together.  For 243 years, countless generations of Patriotic Americans have defended their country and fought for the Republic under the American Flag.  

On Independence Day, Americans citizens always express their support for members of the US Armed Forces and Veterans, who at one time in their lives, raised their right hand and swore to protect and defend the US Constitution, and to protect their fellow Americans from foreign and domestic enemies.  

Each year, the Fourth of July is not only the annual celebration of the birthday of the Republic, some Patriotic Americans also celebrate the day as second symbolic birthday.  The Combat Veterans For Congress listed on the Endorsement page wish all Americans a safe and Happy Fourth of July.
