It used to be in this country that Democrats and Republicans and Independents could get together to compromise and get legislation passed. Bi-partisanship actually existed. All our major social welfare legislation like, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Food Stamps, etc., were passed with a legislative reconciliation process with input between all political parties. Many other pieces of legislation were passed in the same manner, that is, until Barrack Obama came along.
The Democrat Party used to be a diverse makeup of Conservative Democrats, Moderate Democrats and Liberal Democrats. Today the Party is all 100% Far Left. The Far Left has purged the Democrat Party of all less ideological members.
The Far Left, i.e. the Democrat Party takes no prisoners. It does not bargain, compromise or deviate one inch from its Socialistic/Marxist ideology. When Obamacare was crafted there was no input allowed by Republicans. There was no compromise. Obama said, We won the election, we get to write the laws. When you win the election you can write the laws.
The American people would like to see their elected officials come together to work for the greater good of the country – BY WORKING TOGETHER. They cannot understand why this is not happening. They cannot understand why bi-partisanship is no longer possible.
The answer is that you have one Party so wrapped up in its own radical ideology that it refuses to compromise or work with the other side. As a matter of fact they seek to punish their opponents. They will not only defeat them legally and by democratic means but will further demand that all non believers embrace their ideology. Any public display of disagreement will be met with punishment.
Hence the call from the Far Left to fine and/or jail anybody who dares to speak out against Anthrpogenic Global Warming. As we have seen from some business leaders who were removed from office for personal beliefs, we see the same mind set in the gay marriage issue. And again in the Abortion issue.
The push now is for any Pastor who will not marry a gay couple to be fined and/or jailed.
The general liability form does not provide any coverage for this type of situation, since there is no bodily injury, property damage, personal injury, or advertising injury. If a church is concerned about the possibility of a suit, we do offer Miscellaneous Legal Defense Coverage. This is not liability coverage, but rather expense reimbursement for defense costs. There is no coverage for any judgments against an insured.
What the Democrat Party is trying to do is purge the country of anybody and everybody who would dare to think differently from them.
We have written about this already here with this article: https://lexingtonlibertarian.wordpress.com/2015/06/27/the-right-to-dissent-is-being-challenged/
It just infuriates them (The Left) because the key element of totalitarianism, not only will you be defeated by them, but in time you will love them, and you will agree with them, and you will support them, and you will actively join them. And you will not disagree. That is what we are in the midst of seeing. The example he even gave here was with George Takei lashing out at Clarence Thomas over his dissenting opinion in the Supreme Court case. Why? What did it matter? Thomas was on the losing side. What did it matter?
George Takei was livid. He was foaming at the mouth angry, and he let his racism surface. He called Clarence Thomas a clown in black face. He said he didn’t deserve to be on the Supreme Court. And he lost. Takei had more to say about the dissent than he did praising the people in the majority on the Supreme Court. He did not even talk about the justices in the majority. He didn’t spend a second praising him. Neither did anybody else. They all went after Scalia and they all went after Thomas. They all went after Alito. They all went after the dissent. And it was relentless.
“For a fair number of people in what’s supposed to be a democracy, ‘winning’ in any normal political sense simply isn’t enough. They are not really trying to capture something as pedestrian as political equality, nor are they satisfied if they get it.” They claim that’s what they’re about. Equality. They’re not about equality at all. They’re about total domination.
Folks, let me tell you something. This is why — and I’ll just say it for me — I blanche when I hear a Republican presidential candidate say “I can work with them. I can cross the aisle. I’m the guy that can cross the aisle. I can build bridges. I’m the guy who can show the American people that we can work with them.” They don’t want that. The fallacy in this belief that as a Republican you can win and govern because you can gain the cooperation of people on the left, they don’t want any cooperation.
They are not interested in what Chris Christie thinks. They’re not interested in what McCain thinks. They’re not interested in what Jeb Bush thinks. They’re interested in eliminating everything those guys think. They don’t care to get along. That’s why the Republicans have fallen into a huge trap on all of this. Bipartisanship. They are not bipartisan. Somebody give me an example of left-wing bipartisanship. They don’t even define it the way we do. Bipartisanship, as they define it, as in we cave on our core beliefs and agree with them. That is bipartisanship. There is no compromise.
Look at the global warming issue. Why are they so angry? They appear to be getting everything they want. The Pope’s on their side. Big governments are on their side. The United Nations is on their side, but we aren’t and they’re lived. And who do they focus on? The deniers. And who are they trying to destroy? The deniers. They cannot tolerate. They will not tolerate. They cannot handle dissent. They don’t want it.
You will be made to love them and their beliefs. You will be made to understand that gay marriage is superior to standard marriage. You will be made to understand that transgender rights are more important than anybody else’s right now. You will be made to understand that there is a male dominated rape culture on campus, even though there isn’t. You will be made to understand it, and you will agree with it. And you will join us in stopping it, even though it isn’t happening.
You will agree that the Duke Lacrosse team raped and damaged or whatever, even though it didn’t happen. You will be made to agree. You will understand that there is going to be amnesty and you will love it and you will stop speaking out against it. And until you do, you are in our crosshairs. It’s who they are. That is the modern-day Democrat Party, and certainly that is the attitude of their major donors. Let me give you a couple of examples here, just recent examples.
Do you know what’s going on in Ferguson, Missouri? You may not know this. Do you know that the agitators, protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, are still trying to have the Grand Jury decision nullified? In the Gentle Giant case, the Grand Jury, where witnesses came and spoke, where it was discovered that “hands up, don’t shoot,” didn’t happen, all the witnesses lying were exposed.
But you see there’s a different reality. “Hands up, don’t shoot” did happen. The Gentle Giant was walking away, minding his own business. He saw the gun from the murderous white cop. He raised his hands. He said, “Don’t shoot.” He was backing away, and the cop murdered him anyway. That’s what the Ferguson protesters are demanding be the end story. The Grand Jury decision says just the opposite of that. They have been trying to get it nullified. A judge has tossed out the latest attempt. But how long will the judges hold out? How long will they be able to withstand this before somebody says, “Oh, screw it, okay, we’ll nullify it, just get out of here”?
“A judge has tossed out a push by activists for an independent investigation of a prosecutor’s handling of grand jury proceedings in the Ferguson police shooting of Michael Brown, ruling that the effort was ‘not only logically flawed but contrary to the principles of our criminal justice system.'”
So they’re trying to say that the Grand Jury was corrupt, that there was no logic in it and that the criminal justice system was not allowed to actually play out. “St. Louis Circuit Judge Joseph Walsh III, in a 10-page ruling filed last Thursday, wrote that he reached ‘the inescapable conclusion’ that St. Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch ‘faithfully performed his duty’ in connection with the grand jury, ‘even though some other person may have made the presentation to the grand jury in a different manner.'”
So the judge is saying, “Yeah, okay, somebody else might have done it differently, but this guy did it just fine.”
“An attorney for the activists, Maggie Ellinger-Locke, said Monday her clients would challenge Walsh’s ruling to a Missouri appellate court. ‘We believe the judge’s decision provides prosecutors carte blanche discretion to act arbitrarily in any given case. This is not the law, and on this basis we shall appeal.'”
So, folks, it’s an all-out assault on the criminal justice system and an attempt, which will not stop, to have the entire Grand Jury system found corrupt, and if they could get rid of it. And why? Because they didn’t get the result. They did not prevail. There are people who disagree with them, and that will not be tolerated. People who disagree with them, whether they are high judges, whether they are prosecutors, whether they are average ordinary every day citizens, it will not be tolerated.
What happened in Ferguson is that an innocent Gentle Giant was murdered in cold blood by a racist white cop and by golly by gosh we’re not going to stop until everybody agrees with that and lives with that and loves that. We’re not stopping until that. And that’s who these people are. That’s just one example.
A civil rights group demands that Kid Rock denounce the Confederate flag or else.
“Civil Rights Group Demands Kid Rock Denounce Confederate Flag… or Else.” This is from Breitbart. “Unsatisfied with the removal of the Confederate flag from public places, stores and TV shows, activists are now calling for musician Kid Rock to stop using the banner at concerts. The outspoken and politically incorrect artist was born and raised in and around Detroit,” and admits it, “but his love for southern rock and culture has included the use of the rebel flag at shows over the years.
“While it isn’t clear the last time Kid used one of the flags during a performance, members of a Detroit-based civil rights group are demanding the singer denounce the … flag, and are asking the Detroit Historical Museum to remove his name from an exhibit he funded if he doesn’t.” The new totalitarians. They can’t even tell us the last time he used it! It doesn’t matter. It’s that he one time did, or ten times did or whatever. He may not have used the Confederate flag in five years.
But he has, and so he must be punished. He must never, ever use it again — and until he promises not to use it again, and until he begs for forgiveness for having used it — they’re going to demand that a museum remove his name from an exhibit he paid for! “According to the Detroit Free Press, a dozen or so members of the Michigan Chapter of the National Action Network,” Al Sharpton’s group, “held a protest Monday in front of the museum, where there are no Confederate flags…”
There aren’t any there! There are no Confederate flags in the museum. That doesn’t matter. They showed up and held a protest in front of the museum “to target an exhibit that bears Kid Rock’s name. Rev. Charles Williams II, the president of [the Sharpton] Michigan Chapter and a pastor at a local church said, ‘the hometown hero who is a zero with the Confederate flag.'” See how this works? They can’t even remember the last time he displayed the flag at a concert.
It says right here: “While it isn’t clear the last time Kid Rock used the flag –” Doesn’t matter. He did one time at least. And until he apologizes, acknowledges his mistake and swears and promises he was wrong and never will do it again, then they’re going to take down that exhibit that he paid for.
In case you haven’t heard of them, the Ploughshares Fund is a long-time ultra radical anti-American organization. The bottom line is they and White House people are allied and are leaning on people in the Jewish community to force a deal with Iran. “You will support our deal with Iran, and you will love it. You will not oppose us, and you will not say a word in opposition and you will love what we are doing, and you will become public advocates of the deal or else.”
“A new document reveals that the Department of Justice, the IRS, and the FBI colluded to prosecute Barack Obama opponents.” This is from Judicial Watch. Involves Lois Lerner. Just the headlines, folks: “New Docs Reveal DOJ, IRS, and FBI Colluding to Prosecute Obama Opponents.” These are the 501(c)(3)s that the conservative fundraising group is asking for tax-exempt status. Judicial Watch has found evidence that the DOJ, the IRS, the FBI were colluding to prosecute them out of existence.
