VIDEO-RONALD REAGAN SPEECH 1966

Tuesday, April 19th, 2022

Thanks to Gary Kanady for sharing with us his comments re the historical background of the conservative positions starting with this amazing speech that Ronald Reagan gave in 1966 ( see  youtube link below Gary’s comments)  Nancy 

 

Every day we’re being bombarded by new political tactics, hidden enemies, and false friends, right? Nope, there’s not much happening these days that we haven’t been warned about, as the attached video shows. This 1966 speech could have been given yesterday, with the figures adjusted for inflation, and it would have made perfect sense.

 Let me set the stage. The 1954 Brown V Board of Election case, in which the U.S. Supreme Court declared state laws establishing separate public schools for students of different races to be unconstitutional, was decided in the Spring of my sophomore year in high school. We integrated our high school the next fall. I entered the Navy in 1960. My starting salary for the year was $4,800. One of my first goals was to get to $10,000 a year. Two years after that, I was patrolling in a submarine three miles off the coast of North Vietnam. That year, the Supreme Court banned prayer in schools. Two years later Ronald Reagan came on the political stage with his “Time for Choosing” introduction of presidential candidate Barry Goldwater at the 1964 Republican National Convention, the same year Lyndon B. Johnson announced his Great Society program as the cornerstone of his domestic policy.

What do all these events have to do with today? I’ll let you listen to the Great Communicator explain. After you listen, ask yourself if we’ve learned anything from history.

Bottom line: ELECTIONS MATTER!

COVID BILL’S WASTEFUL SPENDING BY THE DEMOCRATS

Tuesday, April 5th, 2022

 

Here’s Some Of The Garbage Democrats Funded As ‘Covid Relief’
APRIL 04, 2022
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:
As the nation’s debt has passed $30 trillion and inflation continues to skyrocket, federal funds are being used to fund four-star hotels and bailouts for deadbeat dads.
“$1 million to pay off overdue child support in St. Louis. A city memo states that owing child support stops some people from looking for work because the overdue payments are garnished from paychecks; the program would ‘empower individuals’ by paying down a portion.” Translation: St. Louis is bailing out deadbeat dads who have skipped out on their obligations to their children—a fine way to teach responsible parenting.
$300,000 for a museum in Worcester, Massachusetts honoring a famous African American bicycle rider from the turn of the last century.
$5 million for the 2022 World Games in Birmingham, which “features niche sporting contests such as DanceSport, korfball, and flying disc.”
$2 million to purchase a ski area in Pottawattamie County, Iowa.
“$6.6 million to replace irrigation systems at two golf courses in Colorado Springs.”
“$2.5 million to hire new parking enforcement officers in Washington, DC.” As a District resident, I particularly “appreciate” this “investment”—because if there’s one thing Washington needs, it’s more government bureaucrats levying arbitrary fines.
A $12 million renovation for a minor league baseball stadium in Dutchess County, New York.
$5 million from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts “to pay off the debts of the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the U.S. Senate in Boston, a nonprofit established to honor the late senator that has struggled financially.”
$15 million in New Jersey to fund upgrades “to sweeten the state’s bid to host the 2026 World Cup.”
$53,000 to renovate City Hall in Woonsocket, Rhode Island.
Tens of millions of dollars for tourist marketing campaigns—as if people who felt uncomfortable traveling during Covid need any more incentive to take a much-needed vacation.
$140 million to fund a 29-story, 800-room hotel in Broward County, Florida that the county will own while a private company will manage. (Why a county has any business owning a hotel is anyone’s guess.) To get around a federal prohibition on using the “Covid relief” money for large capital projects, the county commissioners transferred the federal aid to the county’s general fund, then transferred general fund dollars to the project. If anyone in the private sector tried a gimmick like this, he would get arrested for money laundering—but it’s all in a day’s work for government entities maximizing the cash they can squeeze out of Washington.

GERMANY ABANDONS PRO-PUTIN RUSSIA POLICY

Germany is finally seeing reality  !!!  Nancy

Germany, in Historic Reversal, Abandons Pro-Putin Russia Policy

March 1,2022    By Soeren Kern  Soeren Kern is a Senior Fellow at the New York-based Gatestone Institute.
  • The measures represent a complete reversal of Germany’s post-Cold War Russia policy — which focused on pursuing economic ties rather than confrontation with Moscow — and mark a definitive end to the era of former Chancellor Angela Merkel.
  • “We are living through a watershed era. And that means that the world afterwards will no longer the same as the world before. The core question is whether power is allowed to prevail over the law. Will we allow Putin to turn the clock back to the 19th century and the age of great powers? Or can we muster the strength to keep warmongers like Putin in check. That requires strength of our own. Yes, we fully intend to secure our freedom, our democracy and our prosperity.” — German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Bundestag, February 27, 2022.
  • The significance of the German U-turn cannot be overstated: Germany will become the biggest spender on defense in Europe.
  • In a major policy reversal, the German government has also decided to suspend technical certification of the controversial Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which would double shipments of Russian natural gas to Germany by transporting the gas under the Baltic Sea.
  • “Olaf Scholz is changing decades of German foreign policy in a single speech. Russia went too far and now Germany is waking up. Incredible.” — Marcel Dirsus, German political scientist.
  • “I have to say I don’t recognize Europe as it responds to Putin’s gangsterism against #Ukraine… all of a sudden I see the Continent grow a spine. Way to go!” — Andrew Michta, veteran transatlantic security analyst.
  • “Watching Scholz in Bundestag today is watching decades of German foreign policy change in a few minutes before your eyes.” — Andrew Gray, politics editor for Politico.
  • “Putin knew well why he invested so much in friendly relations. Germany was open to that. But the attack on Ukraine changed everything. Comes certainly as a shock to Putin.” — Ulrich Speck, German foreign policy analyst.
  • “It is hard to overestimate how much Putin’s attack on Ukraine changed Germany. Less than a week ago Nord Stream 2 was still alive, delivering lethal weapons to Ukraine taboo & cutting Russia out of Swift out of the question. Putin’s invasion changed Germany. Turning point.” — Michael Knigge, German journalist.
  • “Germany basically doing what Donald Trump demanded that they do — to widespread ridicule — for the four years of his Presidency. I know it galls people to hear it, but Trump was right about some very big things.” — John McGuirk, Irish political commentator.
  • German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has announced a paradigm shift in German defense and energy policies in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. He said that Germany will substantially increase defense spending and take immediate measures to reduce its energy dependence on Russia.

BLACK LIVES MATTER SCAM

Friday, February 18th, 2022

 

THE BLACK LIVES MATTER SCAM
January 31, 2022

The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation did not raise a single penny for the first six years of its existence. It couldn’t.

The foundation wasn’t even registered with the Internal Revenue Service as a charity. But after George Floyd’s murder in May of 2020, tens of millions of dollars were given to this organization from major corporations and celebrities. And now, no one even knows where all that money has gone. Even worse, there doesn’t appear to be anyone in charge of the organization who can provide that information.

Founded in 2013 after the death of Trayvon Martin, Black Lives Matter was little more than a hashtag and a website that loosely coordinated activism in communities across the country to “intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.”

For years, there did not appear to be a lot of outside resources directed to the organization. But that all changed in 2020.

Unable to accept the avalanche of money sent its way, BLM channeled donations through Thousand Currents and the Tides Foundation until the IRS approved its application for nonprofit status in December 2020. Around that time, Thousand Currents transferred $66.5 million to BLM — a transaction personally signed off on by BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors.

Cullors later issued the organization’s first-ever “impact report” in February 2021, claiming that the organization had raised over $90 million in 2020, spent $8.4 million on operating expenses, and given out $21.7 million to local BLM chapters and affiliated organizations. But these were just top-line numbers in a flashy communications product. No details were given on who was specifically paid what.

A MUST READ – WHAT IS THE GREAT RESET?

Thursday, February 17th, 2022

 

This is the most important article I have ever sent out.  Please share with all your contacts as The Great Reset has to be stopped.  Nancy 
December 2021  • Volume 50, Number 12 • Michael RectenwaldWHAT IS THE GREAT RESET?

Michael Rectenwald
Chief Academic Officer, American Scholars


Michael Rectenwald is the chief academic officer for American Scholars. He has a B.A. from the University of Pittsburgh, an M.A. from Case Western Reserve University, and a Ph.D. in Literary and Cultural Studies from Carnegie Mellon University. He has taught at New York University, Duke University, North Carolina Central University, Carnegie Mellon University, and Case Western Reserve University. He is the author of numerous books, including Nineteenth-Century British Secularism: Science, Religion, and LiteratureGoogle ArchipelagoBeyond Woke; and Thought Criminal.

The following is adapted from a talk delivered at Hillsdale College on November 7, 2021, during a Center for Constructive Alternatives conference on “The Great Reset.”

Is the Great Reset a conspiracy theory imagining a vast left-wing plot to establish a totalitarian one-world government? No. Despite the fact that some people may have spun conspiracy theories based on it—with some reason, as we will see—the Great Reset is real.

Indeed, just last year, Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF)—a famous organization made up of the world’s political, economic, and cultural elites that meets annually in Davos, Switzerland—and Thierry Malleret, co-founder and main author of the Monthly Barometer, published a book called COVID-19: The Great Reset. In the book, they define the Great Reset as a means of addressing the “weaknesses of capitalism” that were purportedly exposed by the COVID pandemic.

But the idea of the Great Reset goes back much further. It can be traced at least as far back as the inception of the WEF, originally founded as the European Management Forum, in 1971. In that same year, Schwab, an engineer and economist by training, published his first book, Modern Enterprise Management in Mechanical Engineering. It was in this book that Schwab first introduced the concept he would later call “stakeholder capitalism,” arguing “that the management of a modern enterprise must serve not only shareholders but all stakeholders to achieve long-term growth and prosperity.” Schwab and the WEF have promoted the idea of stakeholder capitalism ever since. They can take credit for the stakeholder and public-private partnership rhetoric and policies embraced by governments, corporations, non-governmental organizations, and international governance bodies worldwide.

The specific phrase “Great Reset” came into general circulation over a decade ago, with the publication of a 2010 book, The Great Reset, by American urban studies scholar Richard Florida. Written in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, Florida’s book argued that the 2008 economic crash was the latest in a series of Great Resets—including the Long Depression of the 1870s and the Great Depression of the 1930s—which he defined as periods of paradigm-shifting systemic innovation.

Four years after Florida’s book was published, at the 2014 annual meeting of the WEF, Schwab declared: “What we want to do in Davos this year . . . is to push the reset button”—and subsequently the image of a reset button would appear on the WEF’s website.

In 2018 and 2019, the WEF organized two events that became the primary inspiration for the current Great Reset project—and also, for obvious reasons, fresh fodder for conspiracy theorists. (Don’t blame me for the latter—all I’m doing is relating the historical facts.)

In May 2018, the WEF collaborated with the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security to conduct “CLADE X,” a simulation of a national pandemic response. Specifically, the exercise simulated the outbreak of a novel strain of a human parainfluenza virus, with genetic elements of the Nipah virus, called CLADE X. The simulation ended with a news report stating that in the face of CLADE X, without effective vaccines, “experts tell us that we could eventually see 30 to 40 million deaths in the U.S. and more than 900 million around the world—twelve percent of the global population.” Clearly, preparation for a global pandemic was in order.

BIG TECH TOTALITARIANISM

Kara Frederick: Big Tech Totalitarianism and America’s Emerging Social Credit System
American Thought Leaders

AMERICAN THOUGHT LEADERS

JAN JEKIELEK

“It’s not just social media companies or your right to be on Twitter, your right to be on Facebook. It’s everything. Email delivery services, online fundraising platforms … It’s every aspect of your digital life,” says Heritage Foundation research fellow Kara Frederick.

From Twitter to GoFundMe, digital platforms have shut down accounts, fundraisers, or online transactions and removed people from aspects of digital life because of their political views. “These practices are frankly mirroring that of what China does in the social credit system,” she says.

Frederick previously served as a senior intelligence analyst for the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Command, and spent six years as a counterterrorism analyst at the Department of Defense. Later, she helped create and lead Facebook’s global counterterrorism program.

In this episode, she breaks down what she sees as an evolving Big Tech totalitarianism, and offers a strategy to rein it in.

BOOK REVIEW – WOKE, INC.

The author of this book has appeared on Tucker Carlson several times. He tells a compelling story of how corporate America has bowed to the  Woke Industrial Complex.   Nancy

Inside Corporate America’s Social Justice Scam

    • Publisher Description

AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! A young entrepreneur makes the case that politics has no place in business, and sets out a new vision for the future of American capitalism.

There’s a new invisible force at work in our economic and cultural lives. It affects every advertisement we see and every product we buy, from our morning coffee to a new pair of shoes.  “Stakeholder capitalism” makes rosy promises of a better, more diverse, environmentally-friendly world, but in reality this ideology championed by America’s business and political leaders robs us of our money, our voice, and our identity.

Vivek Ramaswamy is a traitor to his class. He’s founded multibillion-dollar enterprises, led a biotech company as CEO, he became a hedge fund partner in his 20s, trained as a scientist at Harvard and a lawyer at Yale, and grew up the child of immigrants in a small town in Ohio. Now he takes us behind the scenes into corporate boardrooms and five-star conferences, into Ivy League classrooms and secretive nonprofits, to reveal the defining scam of our century.

The modern woke-industrial complex divides us as a people.  By mixing morality with consumerism, America’s elites prey on our innermost insecurities about who we really are. They sell us cheap social causes and skin-deep identities to satisfy our hunger for a cause and our search for meaning, at a moment when we as Americans lack both.

This book not only rips back the curtain on the new corporatist agenda, it offers a better way forward. America’s elites may want to sort us into demographic boxes, but we don’t have to stay there. Woke, Inc. begins as a critique of stakeholder capitalism and ends with an exploration of what it means to be an American in 2021—a journey that begins with cynicism and ends with hope.

BIDEN’S REGULATORY BENDER IS CRUSHING THE U.S. ECONOMY

Friday, February 4th, 2022

 

BIDEN’S REGULATORY BENDER IS CRUSHING THE U.S. ECONOMY
By the Washington Examiner Editorial Board  January 24, 2022

By so many measures, Joe Biden’s presidential administration falls at the bottom of the scale. But there is one metric by which Biden is tops — in fact, the very tops in all of history. That is the regulatory costs his administration has imposed on the nation in a single year.

The American Action Forum, a conservative think tank that tracks government regulation, has tallied up what agencies estimate their regulations cost. The Biden administration has now imposed $201 billion in regulations — more than three times the cost that President Barack Obama’s very left-wing administration imposed on families and businesses in its first year.

What’s more, Biden’s new regulations are forcing more than 100 million hours of annual paperwork on the nation, far more than either the Obama or Trump administration.

For a presidency that has basically failed in every important area — on COVID, on the border, on Afghanistan, on the economy — Biden certainly knows how to succeed when it comes to imposing new costs.

The single most expensive rule change, by far, is a requirement that automakers meet an unrealistic 55-mile-per-gallon fleetwide average by 2026. But this is only one of many expensive new rules that stand to sap the bank accounts and energy of entrepreneurs and families.

This is one of the many areas in which we are already missing the Trump administration. For all his faults, Trump made a point of repealing at least one regulation for every new one put into effect. This was a revolutionary idea that actually reduced costs. It was one factor that helped usher in prosperity and unprecedented low levels of unemployment prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Biden is now crushing the life out of the economy with his regulatory frenzy. And unfortunately, he’s only just gotten started. The new infrastructure bill that he signed will impose many additional regulations and billions in added expenses. And matters will only get worse going forward. With the failure of his legislative agenda and Democrats’ impending loss of Congress in this year’s elections, Biden is likely to follow Obama’s example and govern with his pen and his phone, using regulation where he is unable to pass laws.

From the very beginning of his presidency, when he prevented needed pipelines from being constructed and blocked oil and gas exploration on federal land, Biden has been working to make big government bigger and individuals poorer. His administration is filled with far-left ideologues who know nothing about the daily realities of making ends meet or running a business.

The new president who takes power in 2025 will need to think carefully in advance about how to undo all the damage Biden is doing right now.

SUSTAINABLE BY TOM DEWEESE
THE WAR ON FREE ENTERPRISE, PRIVATE PROPERTY AND INDIVIDUALS
Sustainable: The WAR on Free Enterprise, Private Property and Individuals describes in detail the process being used at every level of government to reorganize our society under the excuse of environmental protection. Author Tom DeWeese pulls back the curtain to reveal the policies and the powers behind them that are systematically changing our culture and system of government to impose a political agenda of top-down control at every level. He provides invaluable insight as to how elected officials are pressured by an army of private organizations, planners and federal agencies, armed with federal grants to impose specific regulations in the name of Sustainable Development. Sustainable serves as a hand book for property rights activists to organize opposition. It provides vital information to a news media that is basically clueless to these policies, and it provides a blue print for fighting back as it offers hope to those who are its victims. Read more
