Free Speech in ‘The New Socialist Republic of North America’



I’m not sure I could put forth a better argument for limited government than a June 12, 2017, article published on the website for the Revolutionary Communist Party has unintentionally put forth. Actually, this group’s views are literally the reason we Americans must stay true to our limited government, federalist values.

For those of you who’ve never ventured over to, it’s a glimpse into the “cult of personality” that has characterized so many ill-fated utopian movements; its members falling over in adulation, hanging upon every word blasted from the mouth of their charismatic anti-Christ. The phrase, “They drank the Kool-Aid” comes to mind. It’s pretty creepy… but I digress.

The article is entitled, “Why We Argue For Shutting Down Fascists Like Ann Coulter – And Why We Will Protect Free Speech In Socialist Society.” The free speech hypocrisy of the radical left has always perplexed me… and irritated me, to be completely honest. One minute the members of the Stalanist mob are doing everything wildly imaginable to prevent a college speaker from exercising his/her right to speak freely; the next minute the mob members are proclaiming their Constitutional right of free speech (and due process). Needless to say I was a bit surprised at the honesty which lay in the very title of this “RevCom” article.

What struck me wasn’t so much the author’s (Bob Avakian, the cult’s mysterious and charismatic leader) forthright acknowledgement of the radical movement’s double standard when it comes to free speech. What really struck me was how greatly I misunderstood the socialist concept of free speech.

As I learned, the socialist view of free speech is power, it is who holds the power, and it is who has access to a platform to thus use that power. Therefore, free speech should be applied unequally. It is to be provided differently for everyone in the new socialist society based on certain “concrete situations.”

Thus begins the justifications for limiting speech: (Head’s up! Inventively structured and long, run-on sentences follow.)

“As a basic principle, it is ideas that are in opposition to the powers that be, and the prevailing norms, and which therefore have a hard time finding means and vehicles for expression, and are often the object of direct suppression-it is precisely those ideas whose expression needs to be protected, not those which have the force of governing powers and institutions behind them.”

It is not a level playing field!!-and there is absolutely no need to provide reactionaries, and especially outright fascists, with additional platforms to spread their poison. Indeed, providing such platforms does great harm-it legitimizes and normalizes these views.”

There is no reason to worry, we are assured… Once the United States of America ceases to exist and the socialist autocracy has taken hold, “at that point we [the Revolutionary Communist Party] would hold state power!!” That’s when everything will be okie-dokie, hunky-dory. Then, they’ll allow “even unpopular ideas.” Riiigghhhtttt………

I have to give good, ol’ Bob some credit, though. He goes farther than most of the revolutionaries of this persuasion. Rather than stopping short at hollow justifications for violating free speech rights, he provides the reader with actual excerpts from The Constitution of the New Socialist Republic of North America which specifically address the issue of free speech. Yes, there is actually a “constitution” for after America has been pummeled out of existence. (The “preamble” is quite an interesting read too.)

It is the very text of this new “constitution” for this “New Socialist Republic of North America” that so acutely illuminates and inadvertently thus proves, beyond a reasonable doubt, the absolute superiority of our current Constitution of the United States of America, which enshrines the principles of limited government and individual liberty.

Let’s compare:

America’s First Amendment Free Speech Under the Constitution of the New Socialist Republic of North America (Article 3, Section 2, point 3A)
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” “Freedom of speech, of assembly and association, and of dissent and protest shall not be restricted, except in cases of violation of the law and through die process of the law.”

NSRNA – Doesn’t exactly roll of the tongue, does it?

The United States of America was founded upon federalism, so that a free people would never again be enslaved by the despotic chains of government. For this reason, our 1st Amendment to the Constitution openly declares the limits of which our government may not cross, preventing it from limiting mankind’s right to speak freely. The 1st Amendment lists not one exception. Every time a government makes exceptions, like those found in the NSRNS excerpt above, those exceptions feed the beast within. It was our Founding Fathers’ pure genius that they actually understood this.

The “constitution” of the NSRNA is just another failure in a long line of failures which leads to despotism. There is no limiting of the beast to be found in their hollow prose. There is no absolute protection of liberty for mankind. This socialist “constitution,” even in this singular example regarding free speech, epitomizes intellectual impotence. This is no laughing matter. That same impotence of intellect and putrid moral rot has enslaved masses, including those presently enduring a semi-existence under the despotism in Venezuela, North Korea, Cuba, and the like.

It would be both foolish and imprudent of us to fail to consider the creeping despotism that is very much alive and at work against our country and our liberties. What less than 30 years ago had been relegated to the bowels of society has gained enough support and has effectively intimidated enough people into fearful silence, as to effectively vault this cultish fever into a position of power among the mainstream of American society.

We must stay true to the principles of Federalism: limited government and maximum individual liberty. We must remained unchained. We have to be our own movement and hold our virtues and freedoms dear. As such, I find it most appropriate to end with a brilliant quote from John Adams: “If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”

Guns and Crime

When gun control failed, SRO saves Maryland school



2 students and a suspect were injured in a shooting that took place in southern Maryland. The shooter has since been announced dead. He used a handgun which are highly regulated due to Maryland’s strict gun control. Following the Parkland shooting, Governor Hogan proposed putting a lockbox on casino revenues to be used to fund security in school. This would be the first serious attempt to use the casino money, which was supposed to be for schools, for their intended purpose. In response to today’s incident, other counties, such as Carroll County, are placing deputies in schools as a direct response to the shooting in St. Mary’s County.

The Story

ABC: Student suspect dead, girl critical, boy stable after shooting at Great Mills HS in Md.

The suspect, a student, is dead after a shooting Tuesday morning at a high school in St. Mary’s County, Maryland, that has left a girl in critical condition and a boy in stable condition, according to authorities.

The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office says it happened at Great Mills High School and that police are on the scene. ABC7’s Brad Bell said sources first told him that the shooter was a student, as were the two victims. Police later confirmed that the shooter was a student. Police also confirmed that a school resource officer took action to end the threat and authorities confirmed the incident has been contained.

MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital identified the victims as a 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy. They say the two were taken to them at around 8:15 a.m. and that the girl was later taken to the University of Maryland Prince George’s Hospital Center.

The Takeaway

Being uninformed, deliberately or ignorantly, many on the left will use this as a rallying point for gun control. But as a Marylander, I can attest to Maryland having some of the strictest laws in the country. These laws failed to prevent this incident, as they have failed to curb Baltimore’s crime. Too many on the right, as well are just as uninformed about current laws. We can’t begin to talk about gun control when the population is so desperately malnourished of facts. We can, however, contemplate the issuance of SROs in schools or other means of security such as allowing teachers to voluntarily undergo concealed carry training.

Alas, leftists are saying the SRO went in knowing that an AR-15 wasn’t being used. No, the SRO did his job unlike those cowards in the corrupt Broward Sheriff’s Office. They are trained to engage whatever the gun, because confrontation saves lives. This SRO is a hero. I look forward to knowing his name. Thankfully, only the perpetrator is dead, and together let us pray that the two students recover.

Fundamental transformation of USA: Donald Trump edition



In the age of Trump where the GOP has become the party of Republicrats and Trumplicans, there are those who claim that Donald Trump hijacked the party of Reagan. And while there’s some validity to that point of view, I have to slightly disagree.

A hijacking is usually an act of force where the hijacker seizes control against the will of those being hijacked. But in the case of today’s Republican party, we have a group of volunteer hostages suffering from Stockholm syndrome:

  • Hostage’s development of positive feelings toward their captor
  • No previous hostage-captor relationship
  • Refusal by hostages to cooperate with outside forces
  • A hostage’s belief in the humanity of their captor, because when a victim holds the same values as the oppressor, they cease to be perceived as a threat

Regardless of how it happened, it’s become clear that the party of Reagan no longer represents conservative values, and they have replaced those values with the values of Donald Trump.

As we approach the 2018 election season, this reality is giving rise to the “mini-Trumps” people who are running for office not to save America, but to reshape the GOP into the image of Donald Trump. We’re beginning to see what this looks like at the national level, and now we’re seeing it in state races as well.

In Nevada, Dennis Hof, the self-described pimp who runs a house of prostitution called the Love Ranch just announced his candidacy for the District 36 State Assembly seat. His motivation for running? Donald Trump.

Following an appearance at the annual Lincoln Dinner hosted by a Republican women’s group, Hof shared how he considers Trump a sort of kindred spirit:

“We’re both famous-and infamous. We’re both high-profile. We’re both celebrities. We’re both successful businessmen. We both have reality television shows. We both have written books. We’re both rich and can’t be bought. There’s a lot of similarities.”

He left out “we both have had sex with an unknown number of women,” but I guess he didn’t want to brag about that. Although, if he had, that would have given him two more things he has in common with Trump (the sex and the bragging).

Speaking of multiple sex partners, since the evangelical community gave Trump a “mulligan” concerning his sexual escapades, I’m expecting Jerry Falwell, Jr. and Robert Jeffress to issue their endorsement of Hof as a man made in the image of Trump (idol worship reference intentional on my part).

Donald Trump wrote The Art of the Deal while Dennis Hof wrote The Art of the Pimp. Ironic how these similar titles prove how Trump, to paraphrase Barack Obama, is fundamentally transforming the GOP and America.

Conservative candidates to look out for in Illinois Primary



The traditionally though of as blue state, does fallow the trend of other blue states where more rural counties vote more Republican and urbanized areas vote Democrat. That being said, Illinois has a lot to offer in the 2018 Primary. What’s remarkable about Republicans in this state is that they are keeping the Democrats honest fielding a candidate in most races. What is highly disappointing is the lack of Republicans that aren’t RINOs running in the race. So many are just as uninformed on guns as liberals in the media. And too many have ideas for healthcare other than repealing Obamacare. DACA is a split issue, and Trump, surprisingly, is a nonissue in most, if not all, of these races. Another side note, is that Illinois has a very low presence of 3rd Party candidates, so the Libertarian Party wasn’t put into much consideration. Nor were endorsement all that meaningful.

Best Picks: Max Rice, Jitendra Diganvker, Connor Vlakancic, Preston Nelson, James Marter, Bill Fawell, Donald Rients
Worst Picks: Author Jones, John Morrow, John Elleson, D. Vincent Thomas Jr., Jeremy Wynes, Sapan Shah, Mike Bost, Adam Kinzinger
Best Race: District 16
Worst Race: District 10
Favorite Candidates: Connor Vlakancic & Preston Nelson

District 1

Standing in the red corner is Jimmy Lee Tillman II facing off against Bobby Rush. This isn’t his first time making a run for the seat, but this time he is unopposed in the GOP Primary. Though it seems he runs to serve as an opposition to Rush rather than to win. Tillman seems like a different kind of Republican which one would have to be running in Chicago. For his willingness to shut down underutilized military bases and government offices, Tillman seems fiscally responsible. Either way Chicago conservatives don’t seem to have much other alternative than Tillman who is the founder of the MLK Republicans.

District 2

This is a solid blue district also, but conservatives should steer clear of John Morrow. If Conservative ideals are to gain traction in the district they ought to be led by someone who isn’t a RINO. From this online interview, he opposed eliminating the Obamacare mandate, thinks there’s a gun show loophole, opposes Israel, and is open to accepting North Korea as a nuclear power. I’ll take a Democrat over this guy. David Merkle is a better pick for Conservatives as he is more focused on working for constituents and not the system.

District 3

No Republican decided to oppose Arthur Jones, so I would urge Conservatives to write in a nomination. Please coordinate if you want to vote Republican. Otherwise it seems as though Daniel Lipinski is the candidate of choice. He is one of the few pro-life Democrats in Congress and has one of the most interesting primaries of Democrats this year. A pro-life Democrat is better than a neo-nazi.

District 4

Longtime swamp-dweller, Luis Gutierrez announced retirement. Mark Wayne Lorch is the only Republican in the race. Meanwhile three Democrats eagerly thirst to replace Gutierrez in this highly gerrymandered seat. Lorch seems like a good choice, in the sense that he is running on a tax cuts friendly platform. Not too much other information can be gathered, not even a website.

District 5

Tom Hanson appears to be the only Republican running, but he’s just a placeholder.

District 6

Here we actually have a Republican incumbent, Peter Roskam. Roskam is a run in the mill Republican, reliable on votes and Democrats are mounting an attack for his seat. Roskam is unopposed in his primary. He is also the best hope of thwarting the Blue Wave.

District 7

The GOP front runner is likely Jeffrey Leef. Leef is strong conservative on a multitude of issues, Israel, immigration, and is quite knowledgeable on economics. However on two polarizing issues, I see weakness. He’s weak on protecting the 2nd Amendment despite stating that gun control does not curb violence and states we need background checks, something we already have. He also indicated being in favor of laws capping people’s ability to stockpile. On matters of healthcare, he seems more focused on replacing Obamacare, than repealing it. But his “replacement” is a lot of fluff. He talks about phasing out the ACA and moving it towards a more fiscally responsible system which hardly explains what he wants to do. Meanwhile his opponent is Craig Cameron. On the issues, Cameron comes off as a Big Government Republican, though his heart may be in the right place. He wants more jobs, believing that will make a safer community(Chicago). His means of getting that are merely scaling back government and its regulations. Rather he’s in favor of tax incentives and limited subsidies (a step-up from most of Capital Hill.) On a local level, I think Cameron would make an excellent politician. On a national level, he doesn’t stand out as particularly strong. This is a tough choice for conservatives.

District 8

Another unopposed Republican going up against an incumbent Democrat. Jitendra Diganvker or JD is looking to take back the seat once held by social media commentator, Joe Walsh. JD seems like he would be a solid representative of his district seeing his emphasis on not making the financial lives of his constituents harder. This shapes his positions on both taxes and the national debt. JD is a solid choice for Conservatives, and if he plays his cards right, he can make this a competitive race.

District 9

In the ninth, we have broader competition for the nomination, four candidates. John Elleson quickly falls out of serious consideration because he is apparently an avid fan of Joel Osteen, the Prosperity Gospel preacher. He’s a pastor of some presumably apostate church. He has gotten in some legal trouble for thievery which he and his wife pled no contest to. Do not vote for this crooked fraud. Then there’s Max Rice, who by all means is a solid pick. He’s strong on guns, healthcare, and has a sensible grasp on all things Trump. I also believe conservatives will like how he will deal with congressional staffing and budgets. I really enjoyed his interview here. Then we have Sargis Sangari both a veteran and an entrepreneur. though he seems likable on foreign policy and immigration, he also seems to be government heavy on anything criminal justice reform. Last but least is the RINO candidate D. Vincent Thomas Jr. The guy can’t answer a specific policy question head on and has every inclination of supporting social leftism. He’s anti-gun, against repealing Obamacare, but has the balls to run as a Republican. The Conservative pick here is Max Rice.

District 10

The tenth is a swing district, one that a rising red tide may capture pending the right candidate. There is a three way battle among Republicans to take on Democrat, Brad Schneider. First in the ring is Doug Bennett. Bennett is a local public servant looking for to represent his district. He has the endorsement from local organizations and Joe Walsh. However, Bennett was not in favor of Trump’s tax cuts. The tax cuts capped state tax deductions hurting the Illinois population. Rather than lowering state taxes, Bennett would rather raise the cap. This type of thinking is a serious issue. He is also uninformed on guns recommending legislation that already is law. But it looks like we may be desperate to find a quality candidate. There is Jeremy Wynes, the pro-abortion candidate. It’s interesting how many Congressional candidates are running with student debt in their platform and few other issues, and then offer no solutions. There’s also his main rival Dr. Sapan Shah. Both of their websites are filled with fluff, and weak explanation on their policy beliefs. Words like “common sense” are meaningless if you don’t say the solution. Shah is also pro-abortion and like Wynes isn’t strong on healthcare. I guess Joe Walsh’s assessment was right that Bennett was the only Conservative, but I’ll use that word lightly for now.

District 11

This is a particularly weak looking race between Nick Stella and Connor Vlakancic. I thought I wouldn’t like Stella because he was media endorsed, but he seems to have concise policy explanations as well. He surprisingly has a strong stance on the 2nd Amendment. On DACA the two disagree, with Vlakancic in favor of zero path to citizenship. Vlakancic has a surprisingly deeper history in politics with involvement on Newt Gingrich’s “Contract with America.” The sharped tongue Vlakancic is stronger on guns than the others in the state and also strong on healthcare. As far as Conservatives go, he’s the real deal.

District 12

Incumbent Mike Bost looks to defend his seat. The guy is a proven RINO with a Liberty Score of 35%, a common theme among Illinois Republicans. However Preston Nelson is the Austin Petersen of Illinois. He is a pro-life libertarian running as a Republican. If he doesn’t win and likely won’t knowing seeing how RINOs performed in Texas, I hope he doesn’t give up. Nelson is a top pick out of Illinois.

District 13

Another RINO, Rodney Davis is running unopposed.

District 14

We have another Republican incumbent, perhaps the most conservative, running unopposed. Randy Hultgren is a solid choice over a Democrat counterpart.

District 15

John Shimkus is another unopposed incumbent, but a RINO.

District 16

Adam Kinzinger is the worst rated Illinois Republican on Conservative Review. Thankfully someone is challenging him. This is a safer red district. Rising to the challenge is James Marter, the candidate who in 2016 lost a in the general election for US Senate. Marter is a solid Conservative and hopefully his failed Senate campaign left him with a foundation of supporters. Marter makes it immediately clear that he supports the 2nd Amendment, a recent top priority for candidate selection. He is also for repealing Obamacare, something that should go without saying but doesn’t after 2017. Marter is a top pick in Illinois.

District 17

Bill Fawell looks to have a fighting chance in the Illinois 17th. He is Libertarian leaning and an outsider running on not being bought. Fawell is a solid choice for Liberty lovers everywhere. From his knowledge of the Constitution to his outsider perspective, opposing the system of DC as it currently is. Fawell is a top pick in Illinois.

District 18

Darin LaHood is one of two Illinois Republicans that doesn’t have an F Liberty Score. That being said, he’s not getting a nomination unopposed. This was only LaHood’s first official term, but that’s not deterring Donald Rients. Rients stance’s are centered around small government Conservatism. That is why they are few and principled. If we give LaHood more time, he will likely show his RINO horn. I’d say Rientz is the pick here in the 18th.
