We’ve all heard the old saying about how to spell the word assume. However, there are some things that you just know, a priori, without the need to get up out of your chair and do any science or mathematics, or to look anything up. For example, the whole notion of anthropomorphic global warming should at first glance cause an uncomfortable feeling in the gut; an intuitive or instinctive thing, causing you to be skeptical about it even before you look into it at all. This is the theory that says that man, all by himself, by his behavior, is changing the climate of the whole earth in a negative way; and further, that man, all by himself, can do something to change the climate of the whole earth in a positive way.
I submit that man cannot even affect the local weather, let alone the global climate, and that no legislation, no executive order, no bureaucratic regulation, no court order, no changes in human behavior, no amount of taxes, no amount of spending, no “carbon credits” and no agreement among nations can possibly do anything at all to change that simple fact. It will remain a fact no matter what anyone or everyone does about it. That is the nature of an objective truth.
Anthropomorphic global warming was a fraud and a hoax from the beginning, but the most dangerous thing about it is the global, international scope of it. If this particular fraud was not originally invented by Marxists, it certainly was ripe fruit for Marxism to pluck and co-opt for international use. The whole idea is that this is a problem that is just too big for any one nation to resolve; it needs the whole world to get on the same band wagon, or, as the theory says, the whole world is doomed. This is just another prod toward some form of World Governance by a wise, benign, super-scientific, super-elite new class of world rulers.
Well, gee whiz and gosharooties, I wonder where they might come from.
If any of this sounds similar to the growing global banking, global currency or global economic problems, then you’re beginning to pick up on where I’m going with this. And if you don’t yet believe that the world is periodically and episodically menaced by something requiring super-heroic effort to save it, well then perhaps you weren’t raised on the most politically correct comic books. See the Eco-Nazi Movement page for global warming, ozone-hole, limited fossil fuel, pollution, endangered species and similar giant, global ecological frauds of the same order; this page is taking another tack.
The Most Successful treacherous, underhanded, sneaky modern stratagem of Marxism involves linking sentences such as:
all strung together to quell any opposition to the required heroic effort needed to resolve another non-existent or fraudulent or politically-induced major problem. Those who oppose Marxism are publicly and politically demonized for not joining hands with their (and the world’s) future Marxist dominators in the interest of solving trumped-up problem after trumped-up problem. “Don’t look at what I am,” says the would-be Marxist dominator; “Look instead at the seriousness of this trumped-up problem we need to work together to resolve.”
By such tactics the well intentioned politician is induced to cooperate in his own subordination; the well intentioned Party is induced to cooperate in its own worst interest; the well intentioned nation is induced to cooperate in its own eventual elimination; all in the interest of something or other. Don’t look at the reality of who you are cooperating with, and don’t look too closely at the problem of the moment. Just come together for the common good. It’s good politics.
In the Shut Down Unneeded Bureaucracy page we listed all of the Federal agencies and bureaus and recommended radically cutting, privatizing and even just eliminating all of them, except Defense. Other than Defense, none of them have any Constitutional mandate or legitimate reason for being. (I haven’t finished addressing them all yet; it’s a work in progress.) I submit for your consideration the theory that, with the exception of Defense, most American bureaus at the Federal level are nothing more than Malignant-Outgrowths-Of-Marxism in need of being excised. Our Federal government has no legitimate Constitutional business doing what these agencies are doing, spending what they are spending, taxing what they are taxing, regulating what they are regulating or enforcing what they are enforcing.
Malignant-Outgrowths-Of-Marxism have no ability to refer back to any part of the Constitution, or even to any other writings of the Founders. They were not born of American thought; they are alien ideas. I submit that the single most common source of the very ideas of these agencies, bureaucracies and areas of life under government control is Marx’s Communist Manifesto. And that the next most common source of these ideas morphed out of the larger Marxist ideology that now controls the Democrat Party, the mainstream media and upper academia. Let’s look at a few of them.
Where, if it wasn’t in the original Constitution or anywhere in any of the founding documents or the writings of the founders, did the idea come from for Amendment XVI establishing an income tax, and the IRS? Well, let’s see:
The IRS and the Income Tax – and a blue million special taxes – is a malignant outgrowth of Marxism.
Similarly, neither the Constitution nor the founders ever spoke of any central bank, so where did the idea for the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 come from, establishing The Fed?
The Fed, and the very idea of any central monopoly on banking or credit, let alone government control of student loans (or any loans) is a malignant outgrowth of Marxism.
We find the same situation with the extra-Constitutional idea of government indoctrination under the title of “public” education. Where exactly did that idea come from?
Note that “free” means tax paid. The people pay the taxes, the government spends the taxes. The Department of Education is nothing but another malignant outgrowth of Marxism, and our public schools are nothing but Marxist indoctrination centers.
The whole set of notions under-girding HUD, rent control and rent subsidies, mortgage subsidies, Fannie May, Freddie Mac, etc. – where did all that come from?
The only question is whether current government direction is creeping or leaping in the direction of total control of housing and real property, as well as credit and financing. This is a multi-faceted and multi-branched malignant outgrowth of Marxism.
And where do you suppose the original idea for the hated “death tax” might have come from?
How dare you try to pass the family farm, or your house, or your business, or any money, or anything at all, to your children or heirs, who don’t deserve the inheritance nearly as much as the state deserves it. Inheritance taxes are nothing but another malignant outgrowth of Marxism.
Where did Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, and his Democrat Party get the idea of expropriating and taking control of voting stock in automobile companies and directing corporate strategy in manufacturing, or with the massive taking over of land for government purposes?In the Professional Liars page I said that the entire SLIMC1 , and virtually the whole field of journalism today, is predominantly populated by professional liars, and provided my evidences. The mainstream media is so obviously Marxist in ideology, purpose and direction that it is just disgusting to anyone who loves the truth. How did they get this way? I’ve been observing this Marxist slant in news, education and entertainment since I was a little boy, and it began long before then.
Probably the most frequent three lines I have repeated all over this site are the three big sayings of the Marxist ideologue, as follows:
Some of you have taken me to task for that, saying I’m going too far, that Marxists (or Progressives, or Leftists, or Liberals, or Democrats) have no such sinister intent. I disagree; they are, after all, Marxists, and here is what Marx had to say about it:
Are you ready to be herded onto the cattle cars yet? This is the direction in which we are headed.
Marxism is a Cancer on Human Society. Marxist, or Leftist, or Progressive, or Liberal, or “Moderate” Republican, or Democrat Party ideology is not just another relatively innocent political view of things. It is, at best, extra-Constitutional, and at worst, purely anti-American. American Congressmen, Senators, Justices, Presidents and Vice Presidents all solemnly swear in their oaths of office to protect and defend our Constitution – as written – against all enemies foreign and domestic. Marxism, in every form, from mildest to wildest, directly opposes our American Constitution and Bill of Rights, and it opposes even our Declaration of Independence.
Marxism is, of its very nature, directly opposed to the American Constitution. It is not possible for any Marxist to swear such an oath of office honestly and honorably. He must either violate his Marxist ideology, or violate his oath of office – one or the other.
The enemy of American ideology is not merely within the gates. The enemy is solidly ensconced, and now even occupying the highest political offices in the land. The current Democrat Party Platform is, in its essence, the Communist Manifesto. Not only will the Obamunists, the rest of the Democrat Party and the “Moderate” Republicans not support a balanced budget, they won’t so much as pass a budget, or bring one into existence for anyone to look at. That’s why we have this “Continuing Resolution” nonsense going on. They fully intend to spend us into economic oblivion.
America is being Sovietized. Soviet is the Russian word for Administrative Committee appointed to handle the details of a project. To be appointed is to be somewhat removed from being representative. American bureaucrats are appointed to handle the details of government projects. A bureau is, in effect, a Soviet. We don’t elect bureaucrats, and they do not represent us. America now has Soviets of Soviets.
An example of a super-Soviet is the so-called Super Committee of Congressmen who will act completely on their own in a completely extra-Constitutional and unrepresentative way, on behalf of the entire Congress, which we may assume is busy taking a nap or something. The Super Committee is doing on its own what the entire Congress is supposed to be doing. The Super Committee is a Soviet, which is to say, it is an unrepresentative, appointed, administrative committee. When they fail to come up with a tiny little cut in the huge imaginary budget (remember, we don’t really have an actual budget) then Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, who holds the national check book, will be allowed to start mothballing multiple aircraft carriers and furloughing the Air Force, wholesale. And he will do it.
Do you begin to see the importance of the 2012 elections, and of the nation surviving at least until January 20, 2013? Just look at the damage a Professional Marxist Revolutionary in the Presidency has already done, in this short span of time. And then just imagine what that same Marxist in that same office might do as a lame duck President with nothing to lose.
I hope you’re fully prepared for troubled times.
To Life. To Liberty. To the Pursuit of Happiness.

You want to get rid of the FED and leave us all at the mercy of the greedy bankers who practice usury and still need bail-outs to feed their greed. If there is anything the government needs to centralize it is the banking system so that usury can come to an end.
Usury is prohibited all over the Bible. Did you know that? Are you really Catholic?
This is just one point … I will have more to say later.

You are miss-interpreting the Scriptures. If you are not in the business of money-lending, and someone comes to you in need, you are not to charge interest on what you loan. This applies most particularly to “your brother” or family member, your neighbor or a fellow Church member. But even in Biblical times there was such a thing as a money-lender and he was allowed to charge interest, and that was not considered to be usury. This is shown in both the Old Testament and the New Testament.
Note our Lord’s response to the “wicked servant” who was afraid to invest his master’s money for profit:
This is, again, a matter subject to the Rule of Subsidiarity. If you are in need, you go first to family members, then to friends and neighbors, then to the Church, before you go to the banker. Again, the followers of Marx would eliminate the family and eliminate the Church, leaving you at the mercy of the State. The goal of the Democrat Party is to make you dependent on them for everything; in your case, it looks like they may have already succeeded.

Diane, maybe you need to define what you mean by usury. Surely, you can’t believe that a government controlled banking system would be free of usury.

Returning America to the revolutionary High Ideals of the Founding Fathers, and to the formalized Ideology of Liberty that the Framers set down in the Constitution as the Supreme Law of the Land.
The Fixing America Pages
Almost all the rest of this site talks about our problems; these pages talk about how to fix them. Marxist anti-Americanism has advanced so far in even our politics and our own government that we now have to consider super-radical changes just to save the Constitution itself.
The Required Radical American Re-Revolution. Or, Re-Constitution. It took 100+ years to radicalize Constitutional America. It will take a radical re-revolution to bring it back to sanity.
Fixing it all, or, losing it all: the only options left for America. Fixing it all is our only option. If we don't fix it all, we will surely lose it all.
Going whole-Hog on American Constitutional Restoration. It's all or nothing, now. If we don't go whole-hog on Constitutional Restoration, the USA is history.
Constitutional America requires American re evangelization. We cannot revive Constitutionalism without an American re evangelization.
Deep Reconciliation means repentance, confession, absolution and conversion. A Serious, Deep Reconciliation is required of this whole nation, one man at a time.
At this moment in time, most Constitutionalists would love to kill the IRS. How do you Kill the IRS? Fast-track and pass the Fair Tax. Very simple; nothing to it.
Our argument supporting the Fair Tax as a sensible and practical Tax Revolution. Fair Tax presents the possibility of a real, popular, voter-supported, tax payer supported, grass-roots supported Revolution in America, and a radical change for the better.
Fasttrack Fairtax: Stop income tax until repeal of Amendment XVI. Fasttrack Fairtax: Legislate to not collect income tax and pass FairTax.
Argument to Repeal Amendment XVI, the Income Tax Amendment. Repeal Amendment XVI and the very idea of progressively taxing income.
Argument for Repeal of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. The Federal Reserve Act did not prevent the Great Depression, so why does The FED still exist?
Argument to Repeal Amendment XVII and the Politicizing of the Senate. We need to repeal Amendment XVII and restore our Senate to its original status.
It isn't just Obamacare; we need to kill controlled Health Care. Kill Controlled Health Care to get government and insurance out of the medical transaction.
We need to shut down the dept of education. Shut down the dept of education and cut $77B from the budget.
Argument against Public Education, which is, in fact, Government Indoctrination. Public Education equals State Indoctrination, pure and simple. Education is beyond the scope of government and not what our government is constituted to do.
Are our federal bureaucracies all malignant outgrowths of Marxism? Any extra-Constitutional government agency is likely to be a malignant outgrowth of Marxism.
My Proposed Constitutional Amendment to neutralize the enemy within. A proposed Constitutional Amendment to get anti-Constitutionalists out of power and authority.
The process of becoming a Godless Nation is the sure path to National Insanity. The Godless Nation: Can a totally secularized people even know right from wrong?
Regarding The President We Need, The President We Deserve, and God's Judgment. I can describe the President we need; what we have now is the President we deserve.
Compromise with Evil begins the ultimate death spiral. Compromise on any Vital Principle leads to death, for individual souls and for cultures.
Tolerating intolerance of America is what Americans are being trained to do. In tolerating intolerance of themselves some Americans think they are proving something or other.
Why is this American Christian nation not called a Christian nation? This American Christian nation is oddly referred to as something other than a Christian nation. Why?
Chastity Vs. The Modern World: Signs of a Culture in Decline. Looking more closely at what is REALLY at the heart of American political debate today.
The Chastity Vs Sophistication division: Wisdom Vs Elitist Celebritwittery. 'Naïve' Chastity Vs Sophistication of the Elite. Lechery, promiscuity, perversion are Sophisticated; chastity equates to naiveté. See?
Of Lies and Liars: All the devil's lies, and all the devil's liars cannot make a new truth. He can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but he can't fool all of the people all of the time.
Constitutionalism: Sovereign Citizenship and Limited Representative Government. The philosophy that government derives authority from citizens and is permanently limited is called Constitutionalism.
A minority tail furiously wags a majority dog unto death. In bending over backwards to mollify and molly-codle minorities, the majority forgets it is the majority.
The Christ-centered life, the godless life, and the inevitable ungodly life. When any Godly nation moves into godlessness, the inevitable end is an ungodly nation.
American survival requires bold, take it to the enemy leadership. What we need is radical, revolutionary take it to the enemy leadership just for national survival itself.
Undoing the damage and righting the wrongs, wherever possible. Undoing the damage must follow national survival (assuming national survival.)
American Foreign Policy: what it was, what it is, what it should be. Obamunists and Marxocrats turned American foreign policy into an absolute travesty.
Fix the VA by switching all Government Coverage to VA Coverage. Restricting Congress, the Presidency and the Court to Existing Military Coverage should fix the VA pretty quick.
Fix Military Pay by tieing it to Congressional Pay and Raises. Tying Presidential, Congressional, Judicial and Military to One Pay Scale should Fix Military Pay.
Regarding off-duty military concealed-carry of firearms. With Moslem potential Jihadists in our own military ranks, all American military should be armed at all times.
Sheriffs and Veterans and Citizens; Oh My! County Sheriffs and Veterans should together form volunteer Minute-Man like County Militia units of the free citizenry.
Patience. Be not afraid. A Glorious Sunrise is coming. The Son rose on a Sunday, following a Friday Crucifixion. Our Sunrise will come after much suffering; it will come with our reawakening to Truth.
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
