The People Behind Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Are Not Your Friends

By Eddie Howell

Another rather brief post this time, but one filled with important information

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) got elected to Congress thanks to a group called the Justice Democrats. As Chris Kohl of the Mr Reagan YouTube channel explains, AOC auditioned for the position with the Justice Democrats and got the part. She has no qualifications for the job, but merely follows the instructions of her handlers, led in her office by her chief of staff. When she goes off-script, she can say embarrassing things.

The Justice Democrats, as Kohl describes them, are a very ambitious PAC that wants essentially to replace Congress with people that they control. The video is 23 minutes and 4 seconds, and well worth watching.



The weird and deadly Green New Deal illustrates part of what the Justice Democrats want for our country. It must be stopped lest people really start taking it seriously. It would mean the end of our civilization and/or civil war, in my opinion.

There Were Lower CO2 Levels, but More Extreme Weather in the 1930s


By Eddie Howell

As a follow-up to the previous article, the video below shows that although the atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) level in the period 1925-1938 was about 300 parts per million, the level today's climate cultists desire, the 14-year period was rife with extreme weather events, worse than what we're experiencing today with CO2 level at about 410 ppm, showing that the lower CO2 level was not an advantage as far as extreme weather was concerned.

As seen in the previous video, the climateers deceptively show a part of the graph that does not give a historical context, which would show that CO2 levels today are in fact at historically low levels, and are actually too low. Reducing CO2 levels now would actually harm plants by reducing their capacity for photosynthesis, and reducing the oxygen they would produce.

The video is by Tony Heller at realclimatescience.com (“The Deplorable Climate Science Blog”). The phony climate change hoax is deceiving millions and threatens massive and irreparable harm to America and the world. For example, the Green New Deal would cost many trillions of dollars and yet destroy our civilization. It is so irrational and extreme that it is difficult to see how any reasonable person could view it as helpful.

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Is Essential to Life

The climate change cult's war against carbon dioxide (CO2) is based on the lie that CO2 is a pollutant. In fact, it is essential to life as we know it. Plants must have it for photosynthesis. They use it and give off oxygen, which is essential to life for humans and animals.

Without atmospheric CO2, we would not have atmospheric oxygen. Without CO2, life above the microscopic level would cease. So, if the climateers had their way, and somehow got rid of CO2, the results would be catastrophic. Also, it is not true that CO2 levels are too high, nor does CO2 cause temperatures to rise excessively.  Mike Adams of Natural News explains the importance of CO2 in his video here. (Sorry, I couldn't embed the video here. Please be sure to watch it. It's less than 10 minutes in length.)

I remember learning long ago in science class that we breathe out CO2, plants use it to make their food (photosynthesis), then give off oxygen. And that's how we get oxygen into the air we breathe. Pretty basic. One has to wonder about the motives of people pushing the climate change hoax, if they ever actually studied science. To be clear, the climate change fraud is anti-science and anti-human. It's essentially an invention designed to scare people into giving more power to the government, pay much more in taxes, and give up much of their freedom. For a lie that kills.

At Decision Points for the Future

By Eddie Howell

Due to personal and family health issues, I have less time than usual to work on posting this blog. I hope to soon be back to a near-normal schedule. Meanwhile, I want to point out some articles and videos by others that I find interesting and important. You might also.

Lauren Southern's remarkable documentary Farmlands, concerns the plight of white farmers in South Africa, who are enduring many crimes against themselves. Farmers are also facing the forcible theft of their land without compensation. The communist ANC rulers are out to get the “Boers,” and fears of genocide against whites do not appear unfounded.

*****

At GulagBound.com, an article by Diana West of Epoch Times, “A Short, Communist History of McCarthyism,” labeled,
An open letter to Brent Bozell, Tucker Carlson, Sen. John Cornyn, Jerome Corsi, Joseph diGenova, Hugh Hewitt, Sen. Mitch McConnell, Bill O’Reilly, President Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and all other conservatives who still decry “McCarthyism”

West points out that the term “McCarthyism” and the meaning it has carried, have come to us as a result of the communist strategy to defeat the efforts of Sen. Joseph McCarthy, who correctly identified people who were actual communist agents and not innocent victims of false accusations. She mentions M. Stanton Evans, whose meticulously documented and thoroughly researched book Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America's Enemies, shows that the senator was ill-treated in his own day by the Senate, by presidents and other officials, and ever since by journalists, politicians, historians, and others. I highly recommend West's article and especially Evans' book. I believe that the effort to restore McCarthy's unjustly ruined reputation is truly worthwhile.
*****

Daniel Greenfield's Sultan Knish blog, truly one of the very best, featured an article titled, “The War on Columbus Is a War on America.” His explanation is enlightening as to the left's destructive effort to bring down America. In the context of leftist activity today, the implications are disturbing. Well worth reading.
*****


Tsarizm's High-Tech Traditionalist columnist Baruch Pletner's eye-opening article “Silence in the Face of Leftist Thuggery Was Just As Bad in Early 1930's Germany” describes Hitler's rise to power through years of intimidating the people into allowing his thugs' crimes against Jews and political rivals until, out of fear, they allowed him to “legally” become Chancellor. Is America going to allow the violence of Antifa, BLM, and other leftists to intimidate our people into accepting Marxism? Or will we have courage enough to stand against their thuggery?

America's Domestic Enemies: Marxists In and Out of Government






Monsters of Socialism: Joseph Stalin, Vladimir Lenin, Mao Zedong, and Adolph Hitler

By Eddie Howell


A good brief analysis of socialism, by Ayn Rand:


  • The social theory of ethics substitutes “society” for God—and although it claims that its chief concern is life on earth, it is not the life of man, not the life of an individual, but the life of a disembodied entity, the collective, which, in relation to every individual, consists of everybody except himself. As far as the individual is concerned, his ethical duty is to be the selfless, voiceless, rightless slave of any need, claim or demand asserted by others. The motto “dog eat dog”—which is not applicable to capitalism nor to dogs—is applicable to the social theory of ethics. The existential monuments to this theory are Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia.*

At the risk of beating the same drum and repeating certain points, I’m posting yet another article on this topic. (Other topics will follow, such as the vicious land theft by the communist ANC in South Africa and the continuing implosion of American higher education thanks to Marxist teachers and money-grabbing administrators who care little for actual education.)

The radical left, as many have observed, are involved in a frenzied effort to bring down the presidency of Donald Trump. Beyond this, the goal is to bring down the United States as a sovereign and free nation and also establish socialism (thereby destroying the U.S. Constitution), and help create a Marxist world government.

Whether you call Marxism socialism or communism**, it is an inherently and historically evil, lawless, and very murderous system. If socialism were established in the United States, it would be preceded by leftist atrocities, and violence would continue long afterward, leaving many dead. Freedom would be a thing of the past. The cost of the “free stuff” would be great in lives, property, dignity, and liberty.

No one in China, Russia, North Korea, or Iran is a greater threat to America than the socialist and communist leaders in the United States, in or out of our government. The “blue wave” the leftists hope to create would be a step toward implementing soul-crushing communism.

No matter how much they talk about “democratic” socialism, it is democratic only in the sense that the leftists would like to get into office through democratic elections, then, when the timing is right, to seize power violently to overthrow capitalism, and continue with violence in order to silence and suppress those who oppose them.

There are probably 60 to 80 members of Congress who are members of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), and many work closely with the Communist Party USA, which is very closely associated with the DSA, as are other far-left organizations. The members of Congress could not pass a routine FBI background check, yet they are often found on sensitive Congressional committees. They are not loyal citizens of America, but domestic enemies.

The leftists have convinced a large number of naive, ignorant young people, after years of leftist indoctrination in schools and colleges, that socialism is something to be desired. With the evil and destructive postmodern ideas promoted in our educational system (at the cost of much actual education), people think socialism will lead to Scandinavian-style welfare and a happier nation.
They fail to see that as an economic system it is based on no rational theory, and planned economy is never going to produce prosperity or equity. The Scandinavian countries have turned to more free-market ways because a centrally-planned economy is entirely arbitrary, and the planners truly do not know how to plan, and are usually at odds with each other.

The political side of socialism is the worst. Under the guise of good intentions, socialist leaders exploit the working class and the poor for votes and political gain, and then fail to deliver the promised utopia. Under socialism, the most clever criminals are very soon in control, and many who led the revolution are summarily murdered. Since constitutional protections cease to exist, as they assuredly will, the people are defenseless against the suffering meted out at the leaders' whims.

There is no possibility of doing Marxism “right,” as evidenced by its brutal and bloody history. It inevitably creates a dictatorship and terror police state. The secret police cannot be avoided. As suggested by the anti-Christian attitude among leftists today, religion is punished. Worship of the Dear Leader is preferred, that is until the Dear Leader gets shot in the back of the head and another takes over, who may even claim his predecessor was a counter-revolutionary and had to be removed. That is, until the new ruler suffers the same fate or until one ruler is able to consolidate power for a long time.

Socialist leaders are like the serpent in the Garden of Eden. He put doubts about the quality of life Adam and Eve were experiencing, and made the temptation sound very good. The result was that their paradise was destroyed. The U.S. is a paradise compared to just about any country in the world. But socialists would turn it into a Third World type hell-hole of poverty, murder, and strife.

“Progressives” have already been wreaking destruction in many of our major cities. Their goal seems to be to turn our country into a larger-scale Venezuela, create chaos through senseless violence, do everything they can to bring down the Trump presidency, and with it the Constitution. Their tactics and poisonous results are becoming known to more and more voters, who see through their communist propaganda, and reject it. To preserve America as a sovereign and free nation, free from Marxism, is a cause worth fighting and, if necessary, dying for, defending our nation against enemies foreign and domestic.

Violence should always be the last resort, and this struggle can, and likely will be won without civil war, but in this titanic struggle, we must not lose. As Ronald Reagan said, “There is a point beyond which they must not advance.”

America vs. the Marxist Left

By Eddie Howell

In the following brief video, Professor Jordan Peterson outlines the relationship of Marxism to Postmodernism and explains why the argument is false that what the Russian Revolution produced was not “true Marxism,” which would have brought about the desired utopia without all the bloodshed.



His explanation is so obviously correct that it's difficult to see how anyone can maintain the contrary. Marxism's historical track record amply demonstrates that it is the road to mass murder and dire poverty for the “masses” that are supposed to benefit from it. To prevent our country from being under socialism is a cause worth fighting for, to the death if necessary.

Socialist leaders have no moral objection to anything that would help bring about their desired form of collectivist government. It would be a murderous and lawless disaster. The main incentive it provides is not national prosperity or peace or virtue, but the possible opportunity to control others. A collectivist economy cannot produce anything above bare subsistence or starvation for most of the people. It would produce a fear-driven society. The “free” things offered would ultimately be worthless or nearly so. Security is a condition that many would never experience. Truth from any official source would seldom if ever be heard.

Yet that is what the “democratic socialists” in America are working to bring about. The absurdly unhinged rhetoric and behavior of the rabid anti-Trump left, including violent acts and threats of violence, should be sufficient warning that the leaders of this movement would be willing to seize power by committing atrocities if they thought it necessary.

There is no likelihood of reasoning with these people. They must be defeated. They are led by radicalized anti-American, anti-liberty, and anti-white fanatics. This characterizes much of the Democratic Party leadership today. They are not merely political opponents of non-leftists, but, rather, domestic enemies of the United States.

In America, organized socialism equals communism.

It is time that the American people understood this fact. The principal leftist practitioners of it agree. As Far Left Watch, an anti-socialist website, points out, the tactics and goals of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), the largest socialist organization in the U.S., are the same as those of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), with whom they work very closely with Democrat politicians, as documented by Trevor Loudon.* This is nothing new. What's new is their willingness to openly and plainly tell us what and who they are.

Far Left Watch notes that when one of DSA's leaders tweeted that “communism is a good thing,” several other DSA leaders of various chapters joined in praising communism.
This far-left political organization previously made headlines when leadership from their Iowa State campus chapter encouraged people to shoot President Trump and when leadership from their University of Georgia Chapter called for the execution of house GOP members. Now multiple DSA leaders are publicly endorsing communism, an ideology responsible for the oppression, incarceration, and murder of tens of millions of people.
To slow or stop this push toward socialism will require strong citizen opposition and a better understanding of what we're up against. It is not simply mass hysteria but planned and coordinated action to undermine and bring down America as a sovereign and free nation. Fortunately, the socialists are not as numerous or powerful as they pretend to be.

Quick Note to Socialist Americans

Memo to: (Mostly Young) Followers of Leftist Political and “Cultural” Leaders
From: Eddie Howell

Subject: “People who don’t understand socialism always fall for it.” -- W. Cleon Skousen

Do you have nothing worthwhile to say to patriotic, loyal, hard-working, decent Americans, whom you obviously disdain and despise, and who are waking up to who and what your leftist heroes are? Deceivers and/or deceived by fakes, frauds, phonies, traitors, cowards, and murderers!

Would you like to go live in Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, or your other communist paradise of choice, where you would undoubtedly be much happier than in your hated America that is such a bad place you can hardly stand it? After all, aren’t most people here racists, sexists, and homophobes? White supremacists, Nazis, and micro-aggressors? Profit-mad capitalists who, unlike yourselves aren’t willing to define “compassion” as taking things away from those who earned them and giving them to those who didn’t?

Wouldn’t you be happier among your own supposed kind, the truly communist Bolshevik lost souls? But you might soon be joining their permanently down-trodden class of slaves or facing prison or execution, depending on the leaders’ whims.

With the load of politically-correct nonsense you are trying to dump on America, shouldn’t you expect some resistance? Do you think that Americans regard the Constitution as unimportant, or our freedoms as negotiable? Or that we don’t recognize that communism and socialism are inherently and historically murderous and evil?

You may think Americans should care nothing for our national history and heritage, our glorious founding, and our tradition of having and defending liberty. But, if so, you are very, very wrong.

How dare you call conservatives “Nazis,” when you often resemble Nazis -- you who promote the leftist dogma, and approve of the violence of Antifa, Black Lives Matter, etc., and of the lying Southern Poverty Law Center and others calling conservatives and traditionalists “hate groups?”

Perhaps some of you, someday, will understand that the real wealth of America is in her godliness, liberty, and virtue, concepts foreign to leftists, who, when they gain power, trade in murder, theft, and general perfidy.
