THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
Saul Alinsky, dubbed the father of “Community Organizing”, died 49 years ago, but his legacy in transforming America is alive and well and being implemented by a very militant, vocal group of elected politicians, and vocal advocates in the media, academia and Hollywood.
Let's look at what Saul Alinsky proposed when he was alive and see if his advice in his book of “Rules for Radicals” are happening in America today, under the guise of the misused term of “social justice”. Here is a summary of the main points of Alinsky's rules.
Can you all relate to these rules as to what is happening in the United States today? This transformation scenario of Saul Alinsky is right out of the Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin playbooks. That Soviet “butcher” Josef Stalin, successor to Lenin, described converts to Marxism/Socialism as “Useful Idiots”. Who are useful idiots today in our country? Would they be many in the left-leaning Democrat Party?
Two of our most prominent Democrat politicians have embraced the writings of Saul Alinsky, they are Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama. Hillary Clinton wrote a college thesis at Wellsley College about the policies put forth by Alinsky, and Obama taught classes on Alinsky as a Community Organizer and at the University of Chicago, in a course called “Power Analysis”.
Obama's favorite rule from Alinsky's book was rule # 13 which states “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it”. During Obama's political career he had attacked “fat cat bankers”, “greedy health insurers”, and millionaires and billionaires (an irony is that today, Obama fits into the class of a multi-millionaire).
In our country today we have some real Marxist/Socialists in the persons of Senator Bernie Sanders, Representatives Alexandria Oasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, and Cori Bush, and a few other less vocal adherents to the Marxist/Socialist philosophy. They are all members of the Democrat Party.
In addition, we just so happen to have some very prominent Democrat politicians who would fit into the category of Stalin's “Useful Idiots”, they are Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader, Chuck Schumer.
This coming off-year election in 2022, will be one of the most important consequential elections in our recent history, as it will be a chance to put a roadblock into the implementation of the Marxist/Socialist agenda of the Democrat Party, and the final implementation of Alinsky's “Rules for Radicals”.

That should've been the slogan for Obama's 60th birthday party on “tony” Martha's Vineyard. Imagine after weeks of the Democrats proclaiming that we all should be wearing masks and to avoid large gatherings, the Obama's invited 500 guests, since scaled back, due to public pressure, to a measly 400 (ha,ha!). One of the disinvited guests was none other than the”Wicked Witch of the West”, Nancy Pelosi, who just happened to be in Martha's Vineyard, and who wasn't exactly delighted with the “diss”. As to the birthday bash itself, it seems very few, if any, wore masks at the party. I wonder why the Democrats “Golden Boy”, Tony Fauci, hasn't condemned this potential “super spreader” event, when he has condemned the big biker rally in Sturgis, South Dakota. Would you call that “selective outrage”? Is the Pope Catholic?
The whole point of what took place at Martha's Vineyard, is that the Democrats are the biggest hypocrites when it comes to taking care of themselves and the hell with everyone else. The self-proclaimed “virtuous party” of the elites like to preach and mandate rules of life that are meant for the “great unwashed” - referring to the Republicans and Trump supporters. The Democrats have proclaimed that it is the Republicans who are leading the resistance of not getting the COVID vaccine, but upon further examination, it is the Black community and the Hispanic community who have been the chief “culprits”, not the Republicans. The last time I looked, most of the Blacks and Hispanics were Democrats not Republicans. More “fake news”. Inevitably, as the Democrats pontificate, the name of Donald Trump pops up as a big violator, even though he has advised people to get the vaccine. You could say the TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) is alive and well and living in the heads of Democrats and the “fake news” media 24/7.
Presently, we have the situation of the Democrats proposing to pass legislation that is supposed to correct our crumbling infrastructure problems by passing an estimated $1.3 trillion bill that has more “pork” in it than has the whole State of Iowa has for sale. As usual, the Democrats have bulldozed a number of naive, pliant Republicans into supporting this spending monstrosity. It is estimated that less than one-half of this “infrastructure” bill actually contains money for what is normally called infrastructure namely, roads, bridges, airports and buildings and other structural items that are in need of upgrade and repair. This is only the preliminary spending plan pushed by the far-left loons who control the Democrat Party. In the works, is another $3.1 trillion “pork laden” bill (called Human Infrastructure) that might just be the “straw that breaks the camels back”. If that boondoggle passes, we'll be in debt for over $30 trillion (inflated dollars). When will this idiocy end?
The Democrats think that by spending money, we don't have, it will generate votes for them as jobs will be created with all the money being spent on infrastructure repairs and the other non-infrastructure items. It's another case of “What's Good for Me and Not Good For Thee”. Let's hope that in 2022 the voters will come to their senses and throw the profligate spending rascals out and bring back some semblance of common sense to our government.

I perceive purgatory as a virtual state where you go after a stint being mortal, to have your report card check for reassignment. Progressive elitists and radical democrats need to anticipate long lines for their deceptive marketing, while they are being reviewed, e.g. gift wrapping Pandora's box of socialist ideas and to entice
unsuspecting do-gooders to do the dirty work for them.
When the bow is untied and wrapping paper removed, the contents are revealed, spreading like an uncontrolled virus, to destroy every positive policy from the Trump portfolio. I often wonder how highly educated people can be so stupid and
oblivious to obvious signs before them, that many things square, do not fit in round holes. The replacement policies put in affect for the ones Pres. Joe Biden cancelled.
I don't know how anyone can feel confident in the demeanor the President presents when addressing the public. Or the rising consumer costs of commodities, food, energy, gas, etc. Defunding our security sources during a sharp rise in crime and creating uncontrollable chaos at our southern border, through incompetence of VP Kamala Harris and
Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas DHS, who are responsible for fixing it.
Our diminishing power through faulty foreign policies, making us
vulnerable to danger from our adversaries and unfair trading practices.
Will this administration ever be held accountable?

This phrase, 'the soft bigotry of low expectations,' was written by speech writer, Michael Gerson, for use by President George W. Bush in one of his speeches. It refers to the fact that the Left's approach when it comes to minorities – especially in the black community – is based on the notion that they are unable to achieve success in a white-dominated American society. That attitude is being proselytized by politicians, academics and radical groups like ANTIFA and BLM.
A good example is the canard that Republicans are suppressing the vote by passing laws that make voting more difficult when, in fact, they are making voting easier, while making voter fraud harder. Ironically, the voting law in Georgia, makes voting easier than the voting laws in Delaware – Biden's home state, yet Georgia is being accused, even by Joe Biden, of using the dreaded “Jim Crow” voting laws of yore. The Democrats claim that requiring voter I.D. is a return to the “Jim Crow” laws prior to the 1960's. The Democrats never mention that the Democrat Party was the party that championed the “Jim Crow” laws prior to the passing of the Civil Rights Acts of 1964-65. A historical fact is that if it wasn't for the Republican minority, the Civil Rights laws would not have passed Congress. The same is true of other states who have passed similar laws as Georgia, making the law apply equally to black, white, yellow, red, and brown citizens. Implying that minorities can't get or possess a voter I.D. is a bigoted and racist statement.
Using the pandemic as an excuse, the election of 2020, was fraught with laws that were changed in the months and weeks before the election, making voter fraud easier to commit. By mailing out unsolicited ballots to everyone, many of whom didn't even request a ballot, and in some cases were deceased or no longer resided in the state, battleground states were able to turn the results of the election to Joe Biden. This resulted in a lack of confidence with the integrity of the electoral process among constituents, thus an outcry for voter I.D. reform ensued.
Another area where the soft bigotry of low expectations exists is in the area of education. The left-leaning groups, mainly based in the Democrat Party, have proposed that our curriculum should include the teachings of Socialism's founders, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. Their “Communist Manifesto”, introduced the concept of socialism as a natural result of the conflicts inherent in the capitalist system. Marx and Engels predicted that the upcoming proletarian revolution would sweep aside the capitalist system for good, making the workingman the new ruling class. Those ideas, unfortunately, appeal to many of the minority factions in our country.
Today, we have a movement among the vocal and militant progressive left to introduce and inject into our schools the false facts of designating the United States as a “systemic racist nation”, by attempting to introduce in our schools the “1619 Project” and “Critical Race Theory”. The themes behind these bogus theories is that “white” people are the oppressors, and “black” people are the oppressed. That mindset is and of itself racist as it doesn't take into account the real history of the United States as it has evolved since its inception. Our Constitution and the Amendments to it, have made changes that has made us a more perfect society that is the envy of the world. This is why people from all over the world want to come here, legally and illegally, to live and work in this “racist” country. To claim otherwise, as the radical Progressive left often does to incite minorities, is a libel and slander directed at the United States.
The soft bigotry of low expectations, as promoted by left liberal groups including politicians, academics, Hollywood elites, and violent, anti-social groups like ANTIFA and BLM, is slowly being confronted around the country as citizens become aware of the treasonous consequences of pitting one race against another, one class against another, one ethnic group against another, and one gender against the other. Citizens must be vigilant and confront these assaults against or democratic republic and against the indoctrination of our children in our schools or we will become a third-world country like Venezuela and Cuba in our own hemisphere. Our country is worth fighting for as we try to “Make America Great Again”.
