Op-Ed: Fighting for the Soul of America


Special Opinion to the Mirror by Paul Plante

First of all, before I go any further, let me make it quite clear that I am an American, which means I am neither a Democrat, nor a Republican, both of which are minorities here in America, and I do vote, although I will not give my vote to anybody on the Republican line, nor on the Democrat line, so if I am chewing into the seditionist, demagogue Democrats in here for fomenting sedition, it in no way, shape or manner means that I am for the Republicans, because I am not.

And if the Republicans were advocating for sedition, I would be going after them, as well, but they are not, so right now, they are outside of this discussion, which is on the soul of America, whatever in fact that really may be.

And another important point is that all this crap going on with the media and fake news and Google being unfair to Donald Trump is nothing new, because it has been going on since there was a United States of America.

The newspapers in America have never been fair, nor is it likely in too many cases that they have ever printed “the truth,” since that is not what they exist for in the first place.

And despite the horsecrap put out by the demagogue Democrats to shame those of us who refuse to kowtow to them and cleave to their banner in the name of some knd of solidarity, we have never truly been one people, and we as a people have not believed everybody is created equally, despite those words being in the Declaration of Independence, a document of historical significance, perhaps, but other than that, has no binding effect on anybody, including the people who signed it.

As to everybody in America not being created equal, the version of predestination espoused by John Calvin, after whom Calvinism is named, sometimes referred to as “double predestination,” teaches that God predestines some people for salvation election) and some for condemnation (i.e. Reprobation).

According to Calvin: “Not all are created on equal terms, but some are preordained to eternal life, others to eternal damnation; and, accordingly, as each has been created for one or other of these ends, we say that he has been predestined to life or to death.”

As to Calvinism being here in America at the time of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of American History provides as follows:

American Calvinism owes its existence to the transplanting of European churches and religious institutions to North America, a process that began in the 16th century, first with Spanish and French Roman Catholics, and accelerated a century later when Dutch, English, Scottish, and German colonists and immigrants of diverse Protestant backgrounds settled in the New World.

The initial variety of Calvinists in North America was the result of the different circumstances under which Protestantism emerged in Europe as a rival to the Roman Catholic Church, to the diverse civil governments that supported established Protestant churches, and to the various business sponsors that included the Christian ministry as part of imperial or colonial designs.

Once the British dominated the Eastern seaboard (roughly 1675), and after English colonists successfully fought for political independence (1783), Calvinism lost its variety.

Beyond their separate denominations, English-speaking Protestants (whether English, Scottish, or Irish) created a plethora of interdenominational religious agencies for the purpose of establishing a Christian presence in an expanding American society.

For these Calvinists, being Protestant went hand in hand with loyalty to the United States.

Outside this pan-Protestant network of Anglo-American churches and religious institutions were ethnic-based Calvinist denominations caught between Old World ways of being Christian and American patterns of religious life.

Over time, most Calvinist groups adapted to national norms, while some retained institutional autonomy for fear of compromising their faith.

Since 1970, when the United States entered an era sometimes called post-Protestant, Calvinist churches and institutions have either declined or become stagnant.

But in certain academic, literary, and popular culture settings, Calvinism has for some Americans, whether connected or not to Calvinist churches, continued to be a source for sober reflection on human existence and earnest belief and religious practice.

End quotes

For proof of us not being one people in the beginning, just as we most definitely are not one people now, as these just concluded Blasey Ford Hearings before the Senate Judicial Committee have proven beyond the shadow of a doubt, it is only necessary to refer to FEDERALIST No. 24, “The Powers Necessary to the Common Defense Further Considered,” for the Independent Journal to the People of the State of New York by Alexander Hamilton circa December 1787, as follows:

A stranger to our politics, who was to read our newspapers at the present juncture, without having previously inspected the plan reported by the convention, would be naturally led to one of two conclusions: either that it contained a positive injunction, that standing armies should be kept up in time of peace; or that it vested in the EXECUTIVE the whole power of levying troops, without subjecting his discretion, in any shape, to the control of the legislature.

If he came afterwards to peruse the plan itself, he would be surprised to discover, that neither the one nor the other was the case; that the whole power of raising armies was lodged in the LEGISLATURE, not in the EXECUTIVE; that this legislature was to be a popular body, consisting of the representatives of the people periodically elected; and that instead of the provision he had supposed in favor of standing armies, there was to be found, in respect to this object, an important qualification even of the legislative discretion, in that clause which forbids the appropriation of money for the support of an army for any longer period than two years – a precaution which, upon a nearer view of it, will appear to be a great and real security against the keeping up of troops without evident necessity.

Disappointed in his first surmise, the person I have supposed would be apt to pursue his conjectures a little further.

He would naturally say to himself, it is impossible that all this vehement and pathetic declamation can be without some colorable pretext.

End quotes

Those words by Hamilton some 231 years ago about “all this vehement and pathetic declamation” are in fact what we are again hearing today from the demagogue Democrats, most recently with respect to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to be a Supreme court Justice, but really, going back to 2016, and Hillary Clinton’s now-famous claim where she lumped loyal Americans she didn’t like because they didn’t like her, into what she and the Democrats call a “Basket of Deplorables,” which is like a toilet the Democrats would flush their opponents down if only they could get control of the federal government to do so, which takes us back to Federalist No. 24, as follows:

He would never be able to imagine, while any source of information remained unexplored, that it was nothing more than an experiment upon the public credulity, dictated either by a deliberate intention to deceive, or by the overflowings of a zeal too intemperate to be ingenuous.

End quotes

That is again what we have today here in America from these demagogue Democrats – another experiment upon the public credulity, dictated by a deliberate intention to deceive, which is something the Democrats are really quite adept at today, which again takes us back to Federalist No. 24, as follows:

If he happened to be a man of quick sensibility, or ardent temper, he could now no longer refrain from regarding these clamors as the dishonest artifices of a sinister and unprincipled opposition to a plan which ought at least to receive a fair and candid examination from all sincere lovers of their country!

End quotes

Now, 231 years later, those of us who happen to be men and women of quick sensibility can no longer refrain from regarding these clamors coming at us from all quarters from the Dermocrats as the dishonest artifices of a sinister and unprincipled opposition to our very form of government here in this country, which once again takes us back to Federalist No. 24, as follows:

Even such a man could hardly forbear remarking, that a conduct of this kind has too much the appearance of an intention to mislead the people by alarming their passions, rather than to convince them by arguments addressed to their understandings.

End quotes

That is exactly what the demagogue Democrats, and here I will name Charley “Chuck” Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, Mazie Hirono, Nancy Pelosi, “Joltin’ Joe” Biden and the Queen Mum herself, Hillary Rodham Clinton, are doing today – misleading the people of America by alarming their passions, rather than convincing them by arguments addressed to their understandings – because the Democrats have no such arguments to offer, only emotional bull****, and that by the bucketful, which takes us to an article in the Daily Wire entitled “Joe Biden Calls Trump Supporters ‘Virulent People,’ The ‘Dregs Of Society'” by Joseph Curl on September 17, 2018, as follows:

Joe Biden just had his “deplorables” moment.

Biden, who says he’ll decided in January whether to run for president in 2020 but who is making all the moves of a presidential candidate, used a pro-LGBT Human Rights Campaign annual dinner on Saturday to rip President Trump.

And in so doing, Biden had a moment reminiscent of Hillary Clinton, when she called Trump supporters “deplorables.”

Biden did his old act, starting off soft and avuncular before booming through his power points, punching the air and flailing about.

Biden got himself lathered up into a full froth as he waxed poetic about his and “Barack’s” thoughts on Trump.

“Barack and I agreed to remain silent for a while to give this administration the chance to get up and running in the first year,” Biden said.

“God forgive me,” he added, making the sign of the cross as the audience applauded.

“Our work is not yet done by any stretch of the imagination.”

“The stakes are much too high.”

And then he went even further. “This is deadly earnest, we are in a fight for America’s soul,” Biden said.

End quotes

And there it is, people, in stark black and white – the reason for the title of this thread – Joe Biden and the Democrats are at war with the rest of us in America who are not Democrats and do not want to be for America’s soul!

The next civil war has started and God help the nation and those of us who do not want to be under the Democrat bootheel if the Democrats should chance to win!

As to the demagogue Democrat Hillary, that article included her, as follows:

Clinton used similar language when she called “half” of Trump’s supporters “deplorables” during the 2016 campaign.

“To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” Clinton said in September 2016.

“Right?”

End quotes

And that in turn takes us to a FOX News article entitled “Pelosi filing FOIA request for key Kavanaugh documents, prolonging fight” by Samuel Chamberlain on 8 October 2018, as follows:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Sunday she will request that the government make public the FBI’s supplemental background report into sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, indicating the Democrats’ fight against Kavanaugh is not over.

In her letter, Pelosi said Kavanaugh’s confirmation “has wounded the very soul of justice in our country” and called it a “dark chapter.”

End quotes

And there we see it again, people – the democrats are claiming now to be the keepers of America’s soul, which takes us back to that FOX News article as follows:
In her letter, Pelosi told her colleagues to channel their disappointment at Kavanaugh’s confirmation toward success at the ballot box next month.

“We must not agonize, we must organize,” Pelosi wrote.

“People must vote.”

End quotes

Yes, indeed, people, we must vote to thwart the plans of the Democrats to take control of our national government.

So, then, what about the “soul” of America?

What is it?

Where can it be found?

And how would we recognize it if we could find it?

And my simple answer would be to tell everyone in America over the age of 18 who can vote this year to go to FEDERALIST No. 23, “The Necessity of a Government as Energetic as the One Proposed to the Preservation of the Union” from the New York Packet to the People of the State of New York by Alexander Hamilton on Tuesday, December 18, 1787, and carefully study these words, as follows:

THE necessity of a Constitution, at least equally energetic with the one proposed, to the preservation of the Union, is the point at the examination of which we are now arrived.

This inquiry will naturally divide itself into three branches – the objects to be provided for by the federal government, the quantity of power necessary to the accomplishment of those objects, the persons upon whom that power ought to operate.

Its distribution and organization will more properly claim our attention under the succeeding head.

The principal purposes to be answered by union are these – the common defense of the members; the preservation of the public peace as well against internal convulsions as external attacks; the regulation of commerce with other nations and between the States; the superintendence of our intercourse, political and commercial, with foreign countries.

End quotes

There, people, is the soul of America – the reason we have a national government in Washington, D. C. today is to provide for the common defense of the fifty states and to preserve the public peace against internal convulsions instigated by the Democrats as well as external attacks; and to regulate our commerce with other nations and between the States; and the superintendence of our intercourse, political and commercial, with foreign countries.

That is it!

So when you hear these demagogue Democrats talking about making war on the rest of us for possession of the soul of America, which they claim as their own, ask yourself this existential question – which side will you be on?

THE CAPE CHARLES MIRROR October 14, 2018 at 12:11 pm

Paul Plante says :

With respect to this fight the seditionist, demagogue Democrats, a minority in the United States of America, are now waging against the rest of us in America who are not Democrats for possession of what they are calling “the soul” of America, given their propensity for catchy soundbites, since they have nothing more concrete to offer us other than empty slogans, in FEDERALIST No. 26, “The Idea of Restraining the Legislative Authority in Regard to the Common Defense Considered” for the Independent Journal to the People of the State of New York by Alexander Hamilton circa December 1787, it was stated thusly, to wit:

IT WAS a thing hardly to be expected that in a popular revolution the minds of men should stop at that happy mean which marks the salutary boundary between POWER and PRIVILEGE, and combines the energy of government with the security of private rights.

end quotes

And as we step back to rationally and calmly consider the times we now find ourselves surrounded by, how true these demagogue Democrats, whose ranks now include Eric Himpton Holder, Jr., the former chief “law enforcement officer” of the United States during the reign of the Marxist president of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, how true we see those words to be, because it is POWER and PRIVILEGE these demagogue Democrats are clawing for, with their screaming, howling mobs as their favored weapon, which weapons they wield with practiced skill.

In Federalist No. 26, written some 231 years ago now, at the time of the birth of this nation, Hamilton continued on as follows, to wit:

The opponents of the proposed Constitution combat, in this respect, the general decision of America; and instead of being taught by experience the propriety of correcting any extremes into which we may have heretofore run, they appear disposed to conduct us into others still more dangerous, and more extravagant.

It may be affirmed without the imputation of invective, that if the principles they inculcate, on various points, could so far obtain as to become the popular creed, they would utterly unfit the people of this country for any species of government whatever.

end quotes

Reading that, one can clearly see that 231 years ago, we were a divided people back then, and now 231 years later, these demagogue Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, Charley “Chuck” Schumer, the Queen Mum Hillary Rodham Clinton, “Joltin’ Joe” Biden and Eric Himpton Holder, Jr. are doing their utmost to divide us once again, which takes us back to this statement from 231 years ago in Federalist No. 26, as follows:

The citizens of America have too much discernment to be argued into anarchy.

end quotes

Which in its turn raises this existential question today: ARE WE REALLY?

Which takes us back to another truth from Federalist No. 26, as follows:

As the spirit of party, in different degrees, must be expected to infect all political bodies, there will be, no doubt, persons in the national legislature willing enough to arraign the measures and criminate the views of the majority.

end quotes

And boy, especially after this most recent Blasey Ford Farce the Democrats tried to foist off on us, that is just so true all over again – yes, there are, and their names are Dianne Feinstein, Mazie Hirono and Charley “Chuck” Schumer, which takes us back to this query from Federalist No. 26, as follows:

Is it presumable, that every man, the instant he took his seat in the national Senate or House of Representatives, would commence a traitor to his constituents and to his country?

end quotes

That, people, is a question we really need to put some thought into today, because clearly, while not all them might not be, clearly, some of them very much appear to have become so, which thought takes us to FEDERALIST No. 27, The Same Subject Continued, from the New York Packet to the People of the State of New York by Alexander Hamilton on Tuesday, December 25, 1787, as follows:

Various reasons have been suggested, in the course of these papers, to induce a probability that the general government will be better administered than the particular governments; the principal of which reasons are that the extension of the spheres of election will present a greater option, or latitude of choice, to the people; that through the medium of the State legislatures which are select bodies of men, and which are to appoint the members of the national Senate there is reason to expect that this branch will generally be composed with peculiar care and judgment; that these circumstances promise greater knowledge and more extensive information in the national councils, and that they will be less apt to be tainted by the spirit of faction, and more out of the reach of those occasional ill-humors, or temporary prejudices and propensities, which, in smaller societies, frequently contaminate the public councils, beget injustice and oppression of a part of the community, and engender schemes which, though they gratify a momentary inclination or desire, terminate in general distress, dissatisfaction, and disgust.

end quotes

Reading that today, 231 later, all I can think is just how wrong Alexander Hamilton was back then in his surmisal that the United States Senate would be composed with peculiar care and judgment, which circumstances would supposedly promise greater knowledge and more extensive information in the national councils, and that they would be less apt to be tainted by the spirit of faction, and more out of the reach of those occasional ill-humors, or temporary prejudices and propensities, which, in smaller societies, frequently contaminate the public councils, beget injustice and oppression of a part of the community, and engender schemes which, though they gratify a momentary inclination or desire, terminate in general distress, dissatisfaction, and disgust.

How wrong, indeed!

Clearly, 231 years ago, Alexander Hamilton was totally unable to foresee the rise of the Democrat party here in America, which is now, as we speak, engendering schemes which, though they gratify a momentary inclination or desire for the Democrats, terminate in general distress, dissatisfaction, and disgust by the rest of the American people who do not cleave to the battle standard of that turbulent minority faction here in America.

So, people, once again, ask yourself this important existential question – in this battle these Democrats are waging to capture the soul of America to make it theirs, to the detriment of the rest of us who are not Democrats, which side will you be on?

THE CAPE CHARLES MIRROR October 15, 2018 at 10:59 am

Paul Plante says:

“An insurrection, whatever may be its immediate cause, eventually endangers all government.”

Those are words from FEDERALIST No. 28, “The Idea of Restraining the Legislative Authority in Regard to the Common Defense Considered,” for the Independent Journal to the People of the State of New York by Alexander Hamilton circa December 1787, and with respect to this fight the Democrats maintain they are fighting for the “soul” of America, which is just another way of them saying they want all the POWER and PRESTIGE in this country for themselves, we must wonder if those words are still true today, which takes us to these words from that same essay, to wit:

“Our own experience has corroborated the lessons taught by the examples of other nations; that seditions and insurrections are, unhappily, maladies as inseparable from the body politic as tumors and eruptions from the natural body.”

end quotes

And as we look around this nation today, how true those words from 231 years ago still are today, as we can clearly discern from a daily review of the news coming at us from all quarters, such as the FOX News article “Trump blasts Eric Holder over ‘kick ’em’ comment: ‘Disgusting statement'” by Judson Berger on 12 October 2018, as follows:

President Trump, in an interview Thursday with “Fox & Friends,” rebuked Eric Holder for his call to “kick” Republicans and spurn civility, saying the Obama attorney general’s comments were “disgusting” and “dangerous.”

“He better be careful what he’s wishing for,” Trump told Fox News.

“That’s a disgusting statement for him to make.”

end quotes

For those who might not remember, Eric Himpton Holder, Jr. was this nation’s “chief law enforcement officer” during the reign of the Marxist Barack Hussein Obama as president of the United States of America, so that is some interesting commentary coming from this former alleged “law enforcement officer” who appears to be advocating for lawlessness there, which takes us back to the FOX News article, as follows:

Holder was captured on video speaking Sunday at a campaign event for local Georgia Democratic candidates.

In the clip, he rejected former first lady Michelle Obama’s famous call for civility in politics — adopting a confrontational tone that’s become increasingly fashionable amid the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation fight and other debates.

end quotes

Ah, yes, people, a “confrontational tone,” which takes us back to the statement of Alexander Hamilton in Federalist No. 28, that “seditions and insurrections are, unhappily, maladies as inseparable from the body politic as tumors and eruptions from the natural body,” and forward at the same time back to the FOX News article as follows:

“It is time for us, as Democrats, to be as tough as they are, to be as dedicated as they are, to be as committed as they are,” Holder told the crowd.

“Michelle always says — I love her; she and my wife are like, really tight, which always scares me and Barack — but Michelle always says, ‘When they go low, we go high.'”

“No.”

“When they go low, we kick ’em.”

end quotes

Whip that mob up into a froth and frenzy there, Eric, and show us just how violent your Democrat mob can really be!

And as an aside, I found his comments in that statement about him and Barack being scared of their wives to be quite strange, to be truthful, but such it is, and what a statement about Eric and Barack that makes – these two big tough “black” men being scared of a couple of women!

But as I say, such it is, when it is, so let’s get back to the FOX article and see what else it has to tell us, which is as follows:

His fiery remarks came after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told CNN in an interview, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for.”

end quotes

Cue Sir Edward Elgar’s “Pomp and Circumstance” march, for the Queen Mum herself, the extraordinary and quite exceptional Hillary Rodham Clinton is in the house, spewing her own particular form of venom here, as she too tries to whip up her followers and lackeys and lickspittles and bootlickers into a froth and frenzy.

And who is the Queen Mum talking to, pray tell?

And what does she stand for?

For a quick answer, let’s go back to a New York Times article entitled “Where Has Hillary Clinton Been? Ask the Ultrarich” by Amy Chozick and Jonathan Martin on 3 September 2016, where we see who Hillary’s followers are, as follows:

At a private fund-raiser Tuesday night at a waterfront Hamptons estate, Hillary Clinton danced alongside Jimmy Buffett, Jon Bon Jovi and Paul McCartney, and joined in a singalong finale to “Hey Jude.”

“I stand between you and the apocalypse,” a confident Mrs. Clinton declared to laughs, exhibiting a flash of self-awareness and humor to a crowd that included Calvin Klein and Harvey Weinstein and for whom the prospect of a Donald J. Trump presidency is dire.

end quotes

“I STAND BETWEEN YOU AND THE APOCALYPSE” says our darling sweet Hillary to none other than the sexual assaulter of women Harvey Weinstein!

YOU GO, GIRL!

So there we have the cast of characters starting to firm up on the side of the Democrats in this “fight for the soul of America” they are going to wage against the rest of us in this country who (a) are not filthy rich like Hillary’s army; and (b) who do not want to be under the Democrat bootheel.

But that is just the start, so stay tuned, because as always, when Democrats are involved, there is much more of this drama yet to come!

THE CAPE CHARLES MIRROR October 16, 2018 at 9:13 pm

Paul Plante says :

As to Eric Himpton Holder, Jr., Hussein Obama’s former “chief law enforcement officer,” who we see above inciting violence towards Republicans, urging people to kick them, according to the FOX News article “Trump blasts Eric Holder over ‘kick ’em’ comment: ‘Disgusting statement'” by Judson Berger on 12 October 2018, Holder is considered a potential 2020 presidential candidate and has said he will make a final decision on running early next year.

And God help the nation if a hate monger like him should somehow win the Oval Office is my thought, which takes us to another FOX News article, this one entitled “Michelle Obama rebukes Holder, Clinton over calls for political warfare” by Andrew O’Reilly on 12 October 2018, where we have as follows:

Former first lady Michelle Obama on Thursday openly challenged calls from Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder for Democrats to eschew civility in favor of confrontational politics, saying she “absolutely” stands by her famous slogan, “when they go low, we go high.”

end quotes

Now, here I have to say that in this contest where some out-of-control Democrats like Joe Biden and Eric Himpton Holder, Jr. and the Queen Mum herself, Ms. Hillary Rodham Clinton, a Wellesley grad whose **** does not stink are calling for a Jihad against loyal Americans who simply do not want to be Democrats, and most certainly do not want the Democrat party bootheel down on their necks, that I am glad to see Michelle Obama taking a stand against these seditionist, demagogue Democrats, and a firm one at that, as we see from that FOX News article, as follows:

“Fear is not … a proper motivator,” Obama said during an interview on NBC’s “Today.”

end quotes

Yes, Michelle, I totally agree, but let’s face it, they have absolutely nothing else to offer the American people.

That is why Hillary Clinton has been passed over twice as presidential material here in America.

Getting back to Michelle’s message to these whacko Democrats calling for a Democrat Holy War against the loyal citizens of America, we have:

“Hope wins out, and if you think about how you want your kids to be raised, how you want them to think about life and their opportunities, do you want them afraid of their neighbors?”

end quotes

Sadly, in the case of Joe Biden, Eric Himpton Holder, Jr., Charley “Chuck” Schumer, who is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democratic Socialists of America, and the Queen Mum Hillary, I believe that answer is yes, they do, because it suits their purposes to have them be afraid, because when people are afraid, they can’t think clearly, which is what those demagogue Democrats need to control these people, because fear is indeed a motivator, whether we like that or not.

Consider the Psychology Today article “The Most Powerful Motivator – How fear is etched into our brains” by Robert Evans Wilson Jr. posted Sep 23, 2009, as follows:

There are many things that motivate us.

But the most powerful motivator of all is FEAR.

Our most vivid memories are born in Fear.

Adrenaline etches them into our brains.

Nothing makes us more uncomfortable than fear.

And, we have so many: fear of pain, disease, injury, failure, not being accepted, missing an opportunity, and being scammed to name a few.

Fear invokes the flight or fight syndrome; and our first reaction is always to flee back to our comfort zone.

If we don’t know the way back, we are likely to follow whoever shows us a path.

end quotes

And canny, manipulating demagogue Democrats like the Queen Mum Hillary and Joe Biden and Eric Himpton Holder, Jr. are well aware of that, and by making people afraid., they then seek to become the ones to show those they have frightened into submission the path the manipulators wish them to take, which path, of course, is one that puts the minority Democrats into positions of power over the rest of us, to our detriment as a people, which takes us back to the Psychology Today article as follows:

Marketers use fear as a motivator as often as they can.

They present a scenario they hope will invoke our sense of fear.

Then they show us a solution – a path back to our comfort zone – that entails using their product or service.

end quotes

That is what these demagogue Democrats are – marketers, which again takes us back to the Psychology Today article, as follows:

Fear is used to sell virtually everything: cars, tires, and life insurance are classics.

But, clever marketers also use it to sell breakfast cereal and deodorant.

As a result we purchase all sorts of things that a generation ago were considered unnecessary: antibacterial soap, alarm systems, vitamins… the list goes on and on.

end quotes

And these clever marketers in the Democrat party with their “war for the soul of America” are using fear to sell us Democrat politics, which takes us back to Michelle Obama in the Fox News article, as follows:

“Do you want them angry?”

“Do you want them vengeful?”

end quotes

Yes, Michelle, they do!

According to FOX News, Michelle was speaking out in that article against Holder and Hillary Clinton for the following reason, to wit:

Obama, who was on the show to promote a new project called the Global Girls Alliance, was responding to a question about comments by former Attorney General Holder and former Secretary of State Clinton, both of whom served in her husband’s Cabinet.

Holder was captured on video speaking Sunday at a campaign event for local Georgia Democratic candidates.

In the clip, he tried to turn Michelle Obama’s political appeal on its head.

“It is time for us, as Democrats, to be as tough as they are, to be as dedicated as they are, to be as committed as they are,” Holder said over the weekend.

“Michelle always says — I love her; she and my wife are like, really tight, which always scares me and Barack — but Michelle always says, ‘When they go low, we go high.'”

“No.”

“When they go low, we kick ’em.”

Holder’s comments came shortly after Clinton told CNN in an interview, in the wake of Brett Kavanaugh’s chaotic Supreme Court confirmation process: “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for.”

The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee added: “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again.”

“But until then, the only thing Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

Michelle Obama seemed to reject both their comments on Thursday.

end quotes

And hopefully, more Americans are standing with her by not being afraid, than are cowering in fear on the other side at the feet of Holder and Biden and Clinton, the Democrat party fear-mongers, which takes us back to the FOX News article as follows:’

Obama’s remarks were just the latest — and most high-profile — admonition from top Democrats of Holder and Clinton.

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., a vulnerable red-state Democrat seeking re-election this year, blasted the two on Wednesday — calling Holder and Clinton’s comments unproductive and simply “ridiculous.”

“That’s ridiculous,” Heitkamp said on CNN.

“I mean, I can’t imagine how you get anything done if you don’t bring civility back into politics, and that goes for both sides.”

end quotes

And here I find myself in complete agreement with Senator Heitcamp -yes, their comments, like them, are ridiculous, which again takes us back to FOX, as follows:

And Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul, who last year was attacked in his yard by a neighbor and also shot at while participating in a GOP congressional baseball practice, warned Democrats are potentially inciting violence.

“I fear that there’s going to be an assassination,” Paul told a Kentucky radio show on Tuesday.

“I really worry that somebody is going to be killed, and that those who are ratcheting up the conversation … they have to realize they bear some responsibility if this elevates to violence.”

end quotes

Damn right they do, Rand!

Well said!

And when it comes to politics in this country, it seems to be just a little wheel turning, because it is not quite a year later, and as we can see from the Des Moines Register article “Election 2020: Democrats emphasize unity, change at Iowa Wing Ding” by Brianne Pfannenstiel on 10 August 2019, the fight for the “soul of America” is still not only with us, but is heating up, as well, as the 2020 presidential contest approaches, to wit:

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who has centered his entire candidacy on calling out the president, repeated many of the same points he makes consistently on the campaign trail.

“Ladies and gentlemen, it’s up to all of us — 330 million Americans — who have to do what our president can’t,” he said.

“Standing together, stand against hate, stand up to — let’s call this what it is — this is white nationalism.”

“This is white supremacy.”

“It’s not only our values that are under assault.”

“Everything that makes America America is under assault.”

end quotes

Everything that makes America America is under assault?

I see, I see, Joe, so tell us, since you seem to have the inside scoop there, Joe – what exactly is it that makes America America, so we can understand exactly what this assault is, and how we can spot it, and then know what to do about it?

And you tell us, Joe, and you are a dude who would know this kind of stuff better than any of us 330 million Americans — what exactly is it that we have to do that our president can’t?

If the president can’t do it, what ever “it” actually might be, with all of his power, then how is it that we 330 million Americans who are highly divided thanks to the Democrats, who are dividing us and setting us against each other for partisan political gain, are going to be able to accomplish anything?

And tell us, Joe, what pray tell is “white nationalism,” other than an idea or concept created in large part by pandering politicians and demagogues like yourself so you can have a BOOGIE-MAN to scare people with?

And how are we 330 million people supposed to “fight” this idea of “white nationalism?”

With sticks and clubs and bricks and stones like the Antifa crowd does?

And when you say, Joe, “this is white supremacy,” exactly what are you talking about?

Unconfuse us, Joe!

Don’t leave us in the dark here!

Obviously, we pretty clearly need your guidance so we can know what it is we have to do, so please, Joe, tell us what it is you want us to do!

And in the meantime, while we wait at the edge of our seats with bated breath for what the revelation from Joe Biden is going to be, I’m going to pause for station identification because there is an Irish music show coming onto the radio, and I don’t want to miss it!

Paul Plante says :

So, people, as we head into the “silly season” in America known as a Democrat presidential campaign, a liar’s contest which this year is resembling a potlatch (an opulent ceremonial feast at which possessions are given away to enhance prestige) more than anything, if we are to believe a word Democrat front-runner and self-proclaimed champion of all that is truly good and holy in America Joe Biden says, then we have to believe two (2) things, to wit:

A. Everything that makes America America is under assault; and

B. In the America of today, which is not your father’s America by a long shot, there are at least three genders, and Joe Biden being Joe Biden, he is going to fight as the champion for all of them, and that is a fact!

We now know, after all these years of not knowing, that there are at least three genders in America thanks to the New York Post story “Joe Biden claims there are ‘at least 3’ genders during Iowa campaign stop, blows up at college student” by Mary Kay Linge on August 10, 2019, as follows:

Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden claimed there are more than two genders, then blew up at a young woman who pressed him on the question.

“There are at least three,” Biden told an Iowa college student at the Iowa State Fair, after she asked him how many genders he believes exist.

But after the young woman asked the gaffe-prone candidate to explain what they are, Biden grew heated, according to a video of the interaction posted to Twitter on Friday.

“Don’t play games with me, kid,” he barked.

end quotes

Now, as a grandfather, I have to say that Joe Biden barking at that young woman like that, instead of acting like a sane man by rationally explaining to her what all the different genders are today, so she would be educated as opposed to humiliated, makes me wonder why we, the 330 million American people, would want to entrust the care of the soul of America to Joe Biden, because I personally don’t think he can be trusted with it, but since this isn’t so much about Joe Biden, who was featured in a Marketwatch article entitled “Biden: I’’m more than Goofy Uncle Joe” by Greg Robb published Apr. 19, 2016, where Joe Biden said that he’’s not like the “”Goofy Uncle Joe”” caricature that has stuck to him after his seven years in the White House, and still does today, but about what Joe Biden has said about everything that makes America America being under assault, let’s cut right to the chase and ask ourselves this necessary existential question so that all of us, all 330 million of us Americans who have to do what our president can’t, can actually do what our president can’t, which is to stand against the campaign of hate coming at us full bore from the Democrats as we head into the 2020 silly season in earnest – WHAT MAKES AMERICA AMERICA?

Is it only a concept?

Or some kind of dream?

Is that what Joe Biden is talking about when he says that in his opinion, everything that makes America America is under assault?

America is a place where your dreams are supposed to come true, regardless of what they might be, because the government in America has an obligation to make them come true?

Is that what Joe is on about?

And that thought takes me to an article entitled “College Student: My Generation Is Blind to the Prosperity Around Us” written by a college student by the name of Alyssa Ahlgren, who’s in grad school for her MBA, as follows:

I’m sitting in a small coffee shop near Nokomis, FL trying to think of what to write about.

I scroll through my newsfeed on my phone looking at the latest headlines of Democratic candidates calling for policies to “fix” the so-called injustices of capitalism.

I put my phone down and continued to look around.

I see people talking freely, working on their MacBook’s, ordering food they get in an instant, seeing cars go by outside, and it dawned on me.

We live in the most privileged time in the most prosperous nation and we’ve become completely blind to it.

Vehicles, food, technology, freedom to associate with whom we choose.

These things are so ingrained in our American way of life we don’t give them a second thought.

We are so well off here in the United States that our poverty line begins 31 times above the global average.

Thirty.

One.

Times.

Virtually no one in the United States is considered poor by global standards.

Yet, in a time where we can order a product off Amazon with one click and have it at our doorstep the next day, we are unappreciative, unsatisfied, and ungrateful.

Our non-appreciation is evident as the popularity of socialist policies among my generation continues to grow.

Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently said to Newsweek talking about the millennial generation, “An entire generation, which is now becoming one of the largest electorates in America, came of age and never saw American prosperity.”

Never saw American prosperity!

Let that sink in.

When I first read that statement, I thought to myself, that was quite literally the most entitled and factually illiterate thing I’ve ever heard in my 26 years on this earth.

Many young people agree with her, which is entirely misguided.

My generation is being indoctrinated by a mainstream narrative to actually believe we have never seen prosperity.

I know this first hand, I went to college, let’s just say I didn’t have the popular opinion, but I digress.

Why then, with all of the overwhelming evidence around us, evidence that I can even see sitting at a coffee shop, do we not view this as prosperity?

We have people who are dying to get into our country.

People around the world destitute and truly impoverished.

Yet, we have a young generation convinced they’ve never seen prosperity, and as a result, elect politicians dead set on taking steps towards abolishing capitalism.

Why?

The answer is this, my generation has only seen prosperity.

We have no contrast.

We didn’t live in the great depression, or live through two world wars, the Korean War, The Vietnam War or see the rise and fall of socialism and communism.

We don’t know what it’s like to live without the internet, without cars, without smartphones.

We don’t have a lack of prosperity problem.

We have an entitlement problem, an ungratefulness problem, and it’s spreading like a plague.

So, yes, people – the fight for the soul of America?

Has the battle already been lost?
