I need to follow up my recent article about tax, GDP, a free lunch and big governments. The Biden administration is calling for a tax hike and a much bigger government. Is the United States on the way to be a socialist country like France? If so, how would that be?
Let`s take a look at France. The biggest welfare state in the world. No other coutries in the world spend more money on welfare than the French government. No other coutries has higher taxes either.
But who is protesting a lot? No other countries in the world are protesting more than the people of France, and the yellow vest protesters showed us that. There were multiple reasons for all the protests in France. What they all had in common is that they were all dissatisfied.
Does the people of the United States really want to be a socialist state like France?
First of all; lets talk about tax. No other countries in the world have higher taxes than France. Personal income tax has dropped to 45%, down from 59,6% about twenty years ago. In other words; half of your hard earned money goes to the government.
Corporate tax rate in France dropped to 28% under president Macron. Do doubt that Macron is doing something right. A Trump strategy that is boosting the economy with lower taxes (but that was before the covid attack).
In the early 80`s, the corporate tax rate in France was at a record high with 50%. All that happened under President Fracois Mitterand who served as a President of France from 1981 to 1995, the longest time in office in the history of France.
Mitterand started political life on the Catholic nationalist right, but joined the resistance and moved to the left. He opposed Charles de Gaulle`s establishment of the Fifth Republic.
He invited the Communist Party into his first government, which was a controversial decision at the time. In the event, the Communists were boxed in as junior partners and, rather than taking advantage, saw their support erode. The left the cabinet in 1984.
Interestingly, right after that, the taxes started to decline. Mitterand followed a radical left-wing economic agenda, including nationalisation of key firms, but after two years, with the economy in crisis, he reversed course.
He pushed a socially liberal agenda with reforms such as the 39-hour week, and the end of a government monopoly in radio and television broadcasting.
His partnership with German Chancellor Hermut Kohl advanced European integration via the Maastricht Treaty, but he reluctantly accepted German reunification. By the way; he was also the only French President to ever have named a female Prime Minister; Edith Cresson.
Beyond making the French left electable, Mitterand presided over the rise of the Socialist Party to dominance of the left, and the decline of the once-mighty Communist Party (as a share of the popular vote in the first presidential round, the Communists shrank from a peak of 21,27% in 1969 to 8,66% in 1995, at the end of Mitterand`s second term).
As you can see, the popularity of the Communist Party declined from about 21% to 8%, but so did the corporate tax rate under Mitterand too.
But taxes need to come from someone, and that is the people. How is that going to work out if millions are unemployed? In France, the unemployment rate has always been high. It dropped to 8% in December of 2020, down from 9,1% in the previous period.
The number of unemployed people decreased by 340 thousand to 2,4 million. That sounds expensive. Someone has to pay for it.
France spend nearly one third of their GDP on social welfare, according to OECD. France are on top of the list (27,5) while the U.S is number 22 with 14,3% (as a percentage of GDP).
If we look at total net social spending, France is still at the top with 31,7%, but interestingly, the U:S is second with 30%. Total net social spending takes into account public and private social expenditure, and also includes the effect of direct taxes (income tax and social security contributions), indirect taxation of consumption on cash benefits, as well as tax breaks for social purposes.
Top 20 list of all the countries with tax revenue as a percent of GDP from 40% to 50% are all from Europe. except one; Cuba, at number 8 on the list. A communist country among all the European countries.
The debt in France is skyrocketing. Under Mitterand, the debt to GDP was about 20. Now, under Macron it has increased to 115,70 percent in 2020 from 97,60 percent in 2019.
At the same time, Government Budget in France decreased to -9,20 percent of GDP in 2020 from -3,10 percent in 2019. In other words; the government spends more money than it takes in from taxes and other fees.
So, socialist welfare state France has more debt than the United States. Devt to GDP in the U.S increased to 107,60 percent in 2020, up from 106,90 percent in 2019.
The unemployment rate is also lower in the U.S. The unemployment rate fell to 6 percent in March of 2021. The U.S government is also spending more money than they have. In 2019, the U.S recorded a government budget deficit equal to 4,60 percent of the GDP, but it`s expected to be about 13 percent in 2020.
On top of all the taxes, people in France also need to pay for the roads. A typical socialist country has toll roads. From Boreaux to Paris, you need to pay 55,60 euros for Classe A and 85,60 euros for Classe B.
All the money you earn from Janury to June goes to the government. The govenment will give the money you give them to sick people who ask for free healthcare. State healthcare insurance is available to everyone staying in France for more than three months.
The French Social Security system runs this insurance (called PUMA), and this insurance covers about 70% of the medical costs, and in some cases, even 100% of the costs. The state also pays for every child`s education from 6 to 16 years old.
So, if you pay nearly half of your hard earned money to your welfare state, and drive a car from Boreaux to Paris often, you have to ask yourself what your real tax actually is?
A once in a generation investment. That`s what president Biden called his $2 billion program of infrastructure spending. Biden said it will create millions of jobs while giving roads, utilities and American industry a badly needed upgrade.
But somebody have to pay for it, but who? «We the people» of course. The corporations. And there is one simple way to do that: TAX. Minimum wages are rising. So are the taxes, and what is that suppose to mean? It means the inflation is coming.
«I`m proposing a plan for the nation that rewards work. Not just rewares wealth. It builds a fair economy that gives everybody a chance to succeed. And it`s going to create the strongest, most resilient innovative economy in the world,» Biden said in a speech a few days ago.
The Biden administration plans on modernizing 32,000 kim of highway, 500,000 charging points for electric autos, and bringing back key industries such as chip production back to the U.S. Chips are still mostly produced in Asia. (Bringing back chip industries sounds like a Trump strategy).
The project is expected to take eight years to complete, and some of the funding will come from a corporate tax hike from 21 to 28 percent. Biden`s supporters say the program will create millions of well.paid jobs, and stregthen America`s ability to compete with China.
2 trillion dollars is a lot of money and there is no doubt that this program will boost the semiconductor industry, but also the EV industry.
Biden said he is not worried about the U.S economy at all. At the same time, Janet Yellen makes a push for global minimum corporate tax. She doesn`t want a race to the bottom, and warns of dangers to the American economy if U.S acts alone in raising corporate tax rates.
When Obama hiked corporate taxes, businesses fled. One of the largest corporations in the world; Apple, ended up in Irland thanks to a great offshore plan, but Trump were bringing the company back to the U.S.
It speaks for itself. The more money corporations pay in tax, the less competetive they are on the world stage.
The time we are living in today, is similar to the 30`s, and Biden`s infrastructure plan is often comparead to Franklin D. Roosevelt`s «New deal».
The New Deal was a series of programs, public work projects, financial reforms, and regulations enacted by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the United States between 1933 and 1939.
The programs focused on what historians refer to as the «3 Rs»; relief for the unemployed and poor, recovery of the economy back to normal levels, and reform of the financial system to prevent a repeat depression ( the stock market crached in 1929).
The first deal (1933 – 1934) dealt with the pressing banking crisis through the Emergency Banking Act and the 1933 Banking Act. The Federal Emergency Relief Administration provided $500 million ($9,88 billion today) for relieft operations by states and cities, while the short-lived CWA gave locals money to operate Make-work projects in 1933 – 1934.
The Securities Act of 1933 was enacted to prevent a repeated stock market crash.
The second New Deal in 1935 – 1936 included the National Labor Relations Act to protect labor organizing, the Works Progress Administration relief program (which made the federal government the largest employer in the nation), the the Social Security Act and new programs to aid tenant farmers and migrant workers.
The final major items of New Deal legislation were the creation of the United States Housing Authority and the FSA, which both occurred in 1937, and the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, which set maximum hours and minimum wages for most categories of workers.
Keep in mind that all this happened a few years before the World War II occurred.
The economic downturn of 1937 – 1938 and the bitter split between the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations labor unions led to major Republican gains in Congress in 1938.
Conservative Republicans and Democratas in Congress joined the informal conservative coalition. By 1942 – 1943, they shut down relief programs such as the WPA and the CCC and blocked major liberal proposals.
Nonetheless, Roosevelt turned his attention to the war effort and won reelection in 1940 – 1944. Furthermore, the Supreme Court declared the NRA and the first version of the Agricultural Adjustment Act unconstitutional, but the AAA was rewritten and then upheld.
Republican president Dwight.D. Eisenhower (1953 – 1961) left the New Deal largely intact, even expanding it in some areas. In the 1960`s, Lydon B. Johnson`s Great Society used the New Deal as inpiration for a dramatic expansion of liberal programs, which Republican Richard Nixon generally retained.
However, after 1974 the call for deregulation of the economy gained bipartisan support. The New Deal regulation of banking (Glass-Steagall Act) lasted until it was suspended in the 1990`s.
From 1929 to 1933 manufacturing output decreased by one third, which economist Milton Friedman called the Great Contraction. Prices fell by 20%, causing deflation that made repaying debts much harder.
Unemployment in the United States increased from 4% to 25%. additionally, one-third of all employed persons were downgraded to working part-time on much smaller paychecks. In the aggregate, almost 50% of the nation`s work-power was going unused.
Before the New Deal, deposits at banks were not insured. When thousands of banks closed, depositors lost their savings as at that time there was no national safety net, no public unemployment insurance and no Social Security.
The depression had devastated the nation. As Roosevelt took the oath of office at noon on March 4, 1933, all state governors had authorized bank holidays or restricted withdrawals. Many Americans had little or no access to their bank accounts.
Farm income had fallen by over 50% since 1929 (stock market crash). An estimated 844,000 non-farm mortgages had been foreclosed between 1930 – 1933, out of five million in all. Political and business leaders feared revolution and anarchy.
In 1935, Roosevelt called for a tax program called the Wealth Tax Act (Revenue Act of 1935) to redistribute wealth. The bill imposed an income tax of 79% on incomes over $5 million. It raised the bitterness of the rich who called Roosevelt «a traitor to his class» and the wealthy tax act a «soak the rich tax».
The Roosevelt administration was under assault during Roosevelt`s second term,which presided over a new dip in the Great Depression in the fall of 1937 that continued through most of 1938. Production and profits declined sharply.
Unemployment jumped from 14,3% in May of 1937 to 19% in June 1938. The downturn was perhaps due to nothing more than the familiar rhythms of the business cycle, but until 1937 Roosevelt had claimed responsibility for the excellent economic performance.
That backfired in the recession and the heated political atmosphere of 1937.
Keynes did not think that the New Deal under Roosevelt ended the Great Depression: «It is, it seems, politically impossible for a capitalistic democracy to organize expenditure on the scale necessary to make the grand experiments which would prove my case, except in war conditions.»
Worldwide, the Great Depression had the most profound impact in Germany and the United States. In both countries the pressure to reform and the perception of the economic crisis were strikingly similar.
When Hitler came to power he was faced with exactly the same task that faced Roosevelt, overcoming mass unemployment and the global Depression. The political responses to the crisis were essensially different; while American democracy remained strong, Germany replaced democracy with fascism, a Nazi dictatorship.
The initial perception of the New Deal was mixed. On the one hand, the eyes of the world were upon the United States because many American and European democrats saw in Roosevelt`s reform program a positive counterweight to the seductive powers of the two great alternative systems, communism and fascism.
As the historian Isaiah Berlin wrote in 1955: «The only light in the darkness was the administration of Mr. Roosevelt and the New Deal in the United States».
By contrast, enemies of the New Deal sometimes called it «fascist», but they meant very different things. Communists denounced the New Deal in 1933 and 1934 as fascist in the sence that it was under the control of big business. They deopped that line of thought when Stalin switched to the «Popular Front» plan of cooperation with liberals.
Stacy Abrams is nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize as Georgia investigates her group for voter registration fraud. Who cares? Not Lars Haltbrekken, who is the man that nominated Abrams. Lars Halbrekken is a member of Norway`s Socialist party and nominated Stacy Abrams for her work on voter registration and rights.
A lot of people went nuts when they heard about this earlier this week. But this is not the first time people went nuts regarding the Nobel Peace Prize. The last time people went nuts was when Barrack Obama won the prize. But why? Nobody didn`t understand that. Nor Barrack Obama.
This is very embarrassing for the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, but also for Norway. Giving Obama the prize was a shame and people called the Committee clowns. They lost a lot of credibility and they did not have their annual Peace Prize Concerts since then. They say lack of money is the reason, but we all know why they have a low profile.
Nominating Stacy Abrams is also a shame because we don`t know what happened about the election in Georgia yet. But we can assume that Lars Haltbrekken is satisfied because he is obviously not a Trump supporter.
He is a Norwegian environmentalist and was elected to the Parliament of Norway in 2017 for the Socialist Left Party. In the ’90s Lars tried to prevent natural gas power plants in Norway. A man who grew up in Trondheim.
Ingrid Galadriel Aune Falck is another one from Trondheim. She is a Viking. Well, she was. Right after Qanon (dressed as a Viking from Scandinavia) and his friends stormed Capitol Hill on January 6th, she resigned as a leader of a Viking re-enactment group.
Historically, the Vikings do have a shady reputation, and events in modern times have not made that easier to get past. You know, the Nazis and all that, Ingrid wrote on her blog.
For years, MSM in Norway has talked a lot about the Vikings, and for some people, it is very important to be part of something strong and powerful. A system that can make fear. But Ingrid didn`t want to be part of an organization that has become a Nazi party.
Qanon-shaman (Jake Angeli) with his «horned costume» stormed the US congress, but he also had Viking-tattoos on his body. One of them was the logo of Ingrid`s former re-enactment company, Hands-on History.
Let’s be clear; most Viking re-enactors are kind and respectful, regardless of their level of geekiness. However, every basket has some rotten eggs. And some of these rotten eggs don`t even try to disguise their white supremacist smell, Ingrid wrote on her blog.
The same can be said about the US. Qanon doesn`t represent the Christian community on the right side. He is one of the few extremists.
At the end of Ingrid`s blog, she wrote; I`m letting go of a beast I can`t control. And from now on I`m choosing to laugh instead of getting angry. Sorry guys, I`m out!
Last year, the police in Norway said the biggest threat wasn`t Al-Qaida, but the Nazi`s. A country that is struggling with domestic terrorists.
Philip Manshaus is the last known terrorist who was radicalized in Trondheim. A 21-year-old man who was active on the internet on various forums for anti-immigrant groups. He was armed with multiple weapons and opened fire in a mosque in Norway.
One person was injured before the attacker was overpowered by a 75-year old worshiper. Hours after the attack, the dead body of his stepsister was found in his own house. He murdered his own step-sister (17) who was adopted from China.
Philip Manshaus said in the court that there is a Genocide going on in Norway.
Manshaus was inspired by New Zealand-terrorist Brenton Harrison Tarrant, a 28-year-old man from Australia. He attacked Christchurch in New Zealand on 15 March 2019. He began his attack at the Al Noor Mosque in the suburb of Riccarton and continued at Linwood Islamic Centre. He killed 51 people and injured 40.
Tarrant is a self-avowed white supremacist, and Australia, where the gunman was from, has also seen an increase in xenophobia, racism, and Islamophobia. Tarrant also said that he like Communist China (editor; we all know what they do to Christians and Muslims).
Tarrant was inspired by Fjotolf Hansen (born Anders Behring Breivik), a terrorist who committed the 2011 Norway attacks. On 22 July 2011, he killed eight people by detonating a van bomb amid Regjeringskvartalet in Oslo, then killed 69 participants of a Workers’ Youth League (AUF) summer camp in a mass shooting on the island of Utoya.
Since his imprisonment, Fjotolf Hansen has identified himself as a fascist and a Nazi, who practices Odinism and used counter jihadist rhetoric to support ethnonationalism.
He admitted to the crimes and said the purpose of the attack was to save Norway and Western Europe from a Muslim takeover, and that the Labour Party had to «pay the price» for letting down Norway and the Norwegian people.
After his arrest, he referred to himself as «the greatest monster since Quisling (a Nazi who overtook Norway during World War II).
Fjotolf also alluded to himself as the future regent of Norway, master of life and death, while calling himself «inordinately loving» and «Europe`s most perfect knight since WWII. He was convinced that he was a warrior in a «low-intensity civil war» and had been chosen to save his people.
He described plans to carry out further «executions of categories A, B, and C traitors» by the thousands, the psychiatrists included, and to organize Norwegians in reservations for the purpose of selective breeding.
Genocide in Norway has happened before, and it is possible that it can happen again because history tends to repeat itself. We know the history of Norway`s five national minorities. We know the way of life of jews, Kven, Gypsies, and Romani people (tater).
The minorities have always been treated very badly. Jews were sent to Holocaust and killed during WW II. While Danish Jews were granted ordinary civil rights in 1814, the Constitutional Assembly in Eidsvoll, Norway, that same year went in the opposite direction. Jews were banned in Norway.
The 1800s saw emerging nationalism and a vision of one nation and one people in Norway, and there was little room for being different.
The abuse of power continued in Norway, Now in the form of assimilation.
The Child Protection Act of 1896 allowed the authorities to take children away from all travelers (tater), while the Vagrancy Act of 1900 made the itinerant lifestyle a crime.
Later on, modern genetics came to have a significant influence in Norway and on Norwegian government policy from the 1920s onwards. This hit the Romani people (tater) hard. Alongside groups such as alcoholics, criminals, and so-called “tater” were seen as carrying undesirable genes.
The Sterilisation Act of 1934 allowed for forced sterilization of people with serious mental conditions, people who were mentally deficient, or people whose mental development was severely impaired.
It has been documented that up until 1977 at least 125 Norwegians of traveling ancestry were sterilized, while Romani people (tater) were sterilized without basis in law. Many of them were left with physical and mental scars, and several later committed suicide.
Lobotomy was also carried out on Romani people (tater), resulting in death for some of them.
The Portuguese neurologist Egas Moniz won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1949 for his now-discredited procedure of the lobotomy, which involves serving nerve connections within the brain of a mentally ill person.
Today the lobotomy is considered a barbaric treatment for mental illness, and that`s why relatives of lobotomy patients now have started a campaign to have the prize rescinded.
Mr. DeForest Kelley (as Dr. Leonard «Bones» McCoy) once said; My God, man, drilling holes in his head`s not the answer. The artery must be repaired. Now put away your butcher knives and let me save this patient before it`s too late.
What will tomorrow`s historians say about today`s cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and immunotherapy? It remains to see. People are still suffering and have pain even today. Fortunately not by lobotomy.
In 1897, the government delegated the work to assimilate the Romani people (tater) to a private organization, commonly known as the Norwegian Mission for the Homeless. The mission ran children`s homes, schools, and labor colonies for Romani people with the express aim of eradicating the Romani people/ tater culture.
One important strategy was to remove children from their parents and then raise them as «good Christians» and settled Norwegians in children’s homes. In total at least 1,500 children were separated from their parents, often growing up without knowing about their traveler (tater) background.
Many of these children suffered violence and abuse. More than one hundred families of Romani people/tater descent were sent to Svanviken labor colony in Nordmore to be «weaned off» their traditional way of life and become «good Christians».
The Norwegian Mission for the Homeless continued its activities in Svanviken until 1989, but the Norwegian government is still kidnapping children even today. They take 5 kids from their parents every single day.
The Norwegian government is breaking civil human rights and many of these cases end up in the European Court of Human Rights in Haag. Many of the cases I have heard of is shocking.
The human rights are pretty clear: You have a right to life. Art 3; freedom from torture and inhuman or degrading treatment. Art 4; freedom from slavery and forced labor. Art 5; right to liberty and security. Art 6; right to a fair trial, and Art 7; No punishment without law.
Will Ferrell Hates Norway in a new Super Bowl commercial. Not for any crimes, Nazism, Vikings, or White supremacists, but because they have too much electic vehicles.
Author Hannah Arendt wrote the book «The Origins of Totalitarianism» in which she discussed how it was possible for a democratic state such as Germany to turn into a cold-blooded totalitarian state.
Arendt makes the point that a totalitarian system may become even worse than dictatorships, as the latter implements fear of death when speaking up against the authorities, but totalitarian states do the same, but in a more subtle way.
The aim of totalitarian systems is to control every aspect of a person`s life, his views on the family, genders, his feelings towards the church, religion, and every aspect of life are to be controlled.
In such states, the population is held in fear of repercussions from the police and state authorities, in constant fear of losing their jobs, their reputation, and friends. Fear becomes the tool to keep the population in check. Nobody dares to say much, out of trepidation for what may happen then.
One of Arendt`s main points was that precisely because modern democracies incorporates well-developed institutions and the hierarchical structure, people tend to obey orders without daring to think freely.
They view themselves as part of a system with little or no personal responsibility.
Arendt found that it was not the desire to be brutal to certain ethnic groups such as Jews and Gypsies, that was the root for the «obedience towards the state» that permeated the German society.
It was the indifference, lack of empathy and willingness to obey status quo that permeated the German population.
Since groupthink was vital in this society, no one dared to step out of the group. Those who did quickly ended up in the same concentration camps where intellectuals dissidents joined the Jews and others who were unwanted.
The point is that societies that cultivate just laws prosper.
The Hate Trump Media Mob is always negative about Trump, but a lot of CEO`s is the opposite. One of them is CEO Robert Unanue who spoke to Fox about the future of capitalism and socialism.
Its founder of his company Goya Foods, Prudencio Unanue Ortiz, migrated from Spain, in the 20th century. Now, the family is the 170th richest family in the U.S, and the company is the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the U.S.
In July 2020, Goya Foods Robert Unanue visited the White House and pledged one million cans of Goya chickpeas to food banks, saying «Americans are truly blessed to have a leader like Donald Trump.»
The comments sparked some negative reactions and calls for a boycott of Goya Foods, which in turn sparked counter-boycotts in support of Goya. On 7 December 2020, Robert stated that Ocasio-Cortez was named employee of the month after her boycott call led to a 1000% sales spike.
The family supported Michelle Obama in 2012 with MyPlate, an initiative to encourage Hispanics and African Americans to eat a balanced meal. 30 – 40% more Hispanics and African Americans voted for Trump in Florida alone. Trump must have done something right.
What`s being said today is similar to what Ronald Reagen said in the ’80s. It`s about capitalism, communism, freedom, prosperity, and religion. It`s a big surprise to me to see what Reagan said in a speech called «Evil empire» on 8 March 1983.
The most interesting thing is that Reagan talked about the American experiment in democracy. Experiment? Was 6 January 2021 the beginning of the end of that experiment? Time will show……
The speech is so interesting, so I want you to take a few minutes and read and judge for yourself. Here is a part of the speech;
RONALD REAGAN, “EVIL EMPIRE SPEECH” (8 MARCH 1983)
…..So I tell you there are a great many God-fearing, dedicated, noble men and women in public life, present company included. And yes, we need your help to keep us ever mindful of the ideas and the principles that brought us into the public arena in the first place. The basis of those ideals and principles is… a commitment to freedom and personal liberty that, itself is grounded in the much deeper realization that freedom prospers only where the blessings of God are avidly (mispronounces and corrects himself) sought and humbly accepted.
 The American experiment in democracy rests on this insight. Its discovery was the great triumph of our Founding Fathers, voiced by William Penn when he said: “If we will not be governed by God, we must be governed by tyrants.” Explaining the inalienable rights of men, Jefferson said, “The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time.” And it was George Washington who said that “of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.”
 And finally, that shrewdest of all observers of American democracy, Alexis de Tocqueville, put it eloquently, after he had gone on a search for the secret of America’s greatness and genius–and he said: “Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the greatness and the genius of America. America is good. And if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.” [Applause]
 Well, I’m… [Applause] ..Well, I’m pleased to be here today with you who are keeping America great by keeping her good. Only through your work and prayers and those of millions of others can we hope to survive this perilous century and keep alive this experiment in liberty, this last, best hope of man.
 I want you to know that this administration is motivated by a political philosophy that sees the greatness of America in you, her people, and in your families, churches, neighborhoods, communities–the institutions that foster and nourish values like concern for others and respect for the rule of law under God.
 Now, I don’t have to tell you that this puts us in opposition to, or at least out of step with, a–a prevailing attitude of many who have turned to a modern-day secularism, discarding the tried and time-tested values upon which our very civilization is based. No matter how well-intentioned, their value system is radically different from that of most Americans. And while they proclaim that they’re freeing us from superstitions of the past, they’ve taken upon themselves the job of superintending us by government rule and regulation. Sometimes their voices are louder than ours, but they are not yet a majority. [Applause]
 An example of that vocal superiority is evident in a controversy now going on in Washington. And since I’m involved, I’ve been waiting to hear from the parents of young America. How far are they willing to go in giving to the government their prerogatives as parents?
 Well, we have ordered clinics receiving federal funds to notify the parent’s such help has been given. [Applause] One of the nation’s leading newspapers has created the term “squeal rule” in editorializing against us for doing this, and we’re being criticized for violating the privacy of young people. A judge has recently granted an injunction against an enforcement of our rule. I’ve watched TV panel shows discuss this issue, seen columnists pontificating on our error, but no one seems to mention morality as playing a part in the subject of sex. [Applause]
 Many of us in the government would like to know what parents think about this intrusion in their family by the government. We’re going to fight in the courts. The right of parents and the rights of family take precedence over those of Washington-based bureaucrats and social engineers. [Applause]
 But the fight against parental notification is really only one example of many attempts to water down traditional values and even abrogate the original terms of American democracy. Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged. [Applause] When our founding fathers passed the First Amendment, they sought to protect churches from government interference. They never intended to construct a wall of hostility between government and the concept of religious belief itself. [Murmurs of agreement, Applause]
 The evidence of this permeates our history and our government. The Declaration of Independence mentions the Supreme Being no less than four times. “In God We Trust” is engraved on our coinage. The Supreme Court opens its proceedings with a religious invocation. And the members of Congress open their sessions with a prayer. I just happen to believe the schoolchildren of the United States are entitled to the same privileges as [Continues over applause] Supreme Court Justices and Congressmen.
 Last year, I sent the Congress a constitutional amendment to restore prayer to public schools. Already this session, there’s growing bipartisan support for the amendment, and I am calling on Congress to act speedily to pass it and to let our children pray. [Applause]
 Senators Denton and Hatfield have proposed legislation in Congress on the whole question of prohibiting discrimination against religious forms of student speech. Such legislation could go far to restore freedom of religious speech for public school students. And I hope the Congress considers these bills quickly. And with your help, I think it’s possible we could also get the constitutional amendment through the Congress this year. [Applause]
 More than a decade ago, a Supreme Court decision literally wiped off the books of fifty states, statutes protecting the rights of unborn children. Abortion on demand now takes the lives of up to one and a half million unborn children a year. Human life legislation ending this tragedy will someday pass the Congress, and you and I must never rest until it does. [Applause] Unless and until it can be proven that the unborn child is not a living entity, then its right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness must be protected. [Applause]
 Now, I’m sure that you must get discouraged at times, but there you’ve done better than you know, perhaps. There’s a great spiritual awakening in America, a [Applause]…a renewal of the traditional values that have been the bedrock of America’s goodness and greatness.
 One recent survey by a Washington-based research council concluded that Americans were far more religious than the people of other nations; 95 percent of those surveyed expressed a belief in God and a huge majority believed the Ten Commandments had real meaning in their lives, and another study has found that an overwhelming majority of Americans disapprove of adultery, teenage sex, pornography, abortion, and hard drugs, and this same study showed a deep reverence for the importance of family ties and religious belief.
 I [Applause]…I think the items that we’ve discussed here today must be a key part of the nation’s political agenda. For the first time, the Congress is openly and seriously debating and dealing with the prayer and abortion issues–and that’s enormous progress right there. I repeat: America is in the midst of a spiritual awakening and a moral renewal. And with your biblical keynote, I say today, “Yes, let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream.”
 Now, [Applause]…obviously, much of this new political and social consensus I’ve talked about is based on a positive view of American history, one that takes pride in our country’s accomplishments and record. But we must never forget that no government schemes are going to perfect man. We know that living in this world means dealing with what philosophers would call the phenomenology of evil or, as theologians would put it, the doctrine of sin.
 There is sin and evil in the world, and we’re enjoined by Scripture and the Lord Jesus to oppose it with all our might. Our nation, too, has a legacy of evil with which it must deal. The glory of this land has been its capacity for transcending the moral evils of our past. For example, the long struggle of minority citizens…for equal rights, once a source of disunity and civil war is now a point of pride for all Americans. We must never go back. There is no room for racism, anti-Semitism, or other forms of ethnic and racial hatred in this country. [Long Applause]
 I know that you’ve been horrified, as have I, by the resurgence of some hate groups preaching bigotry and prejudice. Use the mighty voice of your pulpits and the powerful standing of your churches to denounce and isolate these hate groups in our midst. The commandment given us is clear and simple: “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” [Applause]
 But whatever sad episodes exist in our past, any objective observer must hold a positive view of American history, a history that has been the story of hopes fulfilled and dreams made into reality. Especially in this century, America has kept alight the torch of freedom, but not just for ourselves, but for millions of others around the world.
 And this brings me to my final point today. During my first press conference as president, in answer to a direct question, I pointed out that, as good Marxist-Leninists, the Soviet leaders have openly and publicly declared that the only morality they recognize is that which will further their cause, which is world revolution. I think I should point out I was only quoting Lenin, their guiding spirit, who said in 1920 that they repudiate all morality that proceeds from supernatural ideas–that’s their name for religion–or ideas that are outside class conceptions. Morality is entirely subordinate to the interests of class war. And everything is moral that is necessary for the annihilation of the old exploiting social order and for uniting the proletariat.
 Well, I think the refusal of many influential people to accept this elementary fact of Soviet doctrine illustrates a historical reluctance to see totalitarian powers for what they are. We saw this phenomenon in the 1930s. We see it too often today.
 This doesn’t mean we should isolate ourselves and refuse to seek an understanding with them. I intend to do everything I can to persuade them of our peaceful intent, to remind them that it was the West that refused to use its nuclear monopoly in the forties and fifties for territorial gain and which now pr-proposes 50 percent cut in strategic ballistic missiles and the elimination of an entire class of land-based, intermediate-range nuclear missiles. [Applause]
 At the same time, however, they must be made to understand: we will never compromise our principles and standards. We will never give away our freedom. We will never abandon our belief in God. [Long Applause] And we will never stop searching for genuine peace, but we can assure none of these things America stands for through the so-called nuclear freeze solutions proposed by some.
 The truth is that a freeze now would be a very dangerous fraud, for that is merely the illusion of peace. The reality is that we must find peace through strength. [Applause]
 I would a-[Applause continuing]…I would agree to a freeze if only we could freeze the Soviets’ global desires. [Laughter, Applause] A freeze at current levels of weapons would remove any incentive for the Soviets to negotiate seriously in Geneva and virtually end our chances to achieve the major arms reductions which we have proposed. Instead, they would achieve their objectives through the freeze.
 A freeze would reward the Soviet Union for its enormous and unparalleled military buildup. It would prevent the essential and long overdue modernization of the United States and allied defenses and would leave our aging forces increasingly vulnerable. And an honest freeze would require extensive prior negotiations on the systems and numbers to be limited and on the measures to ensure effective verification and compliance. And the kind of a freeze that has been suggested would be virtually impossible to verify. Such a major effort would divert us completely from our current negotiations on achieving substantial reductions. [Applause]
 I, a number of years ago, I heard a young father, a very prominent young man in the entertainment world, addressing a tremendous gathering in California. It was during the time of the cold war, and communism and our own way of life were very much on people’s minds. And he was speaking to that subject. And suddenly, though, I heard him saying, “I love my little girls more than anything–” And I said to myself, “Oh, no, don’t. You can’t — don’t say that.” But I had underestimated him. He went on: “I would rather see my little girls die now; still believing in God than have them grow up under communism and one day die no longer believing in God.” [Applause]
 There were…There were thousands of young people in that audience. They came to their feet with shouts of joy. They had instantly recognized the profound truth in what he had said, with regard to the physical and the soul and what was truly important.
 Yes, let us pray for the salvation of all of those who live in that totalitarian darkness–pray they will discover the joy of knowing God. But until they do, let us be aware that while they preach the supremacy of the State, declare its omnipotence over individual man, and predict its eventual domination of all peoples on the earth, they are the focus of evil in the modern world.
 It was C.S. Lewis who, in his unforgettable “Screwtape Letters,” wrote: “The greatest evil is not done now…in those sordid ‘dens of crime’ that Dickens loved to paint. It is…not even done in concentration camps and labor camps. In those, we see its final result, but it is conceived and ordered; moved, seconded, carried and minuted in clear, carpeted, warmed, and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voice.”
 Well, because these “quiet men” do not “raise their voices,” because they sometimes speak in soothing tones of brotherhood and peace, because, like other dictators before them, they’re always making “their final territorial demand,” some would have us accept them at their word and accommodate ourselves to their aggressive impulses. But if history teaches anything, it teaches that simpleminded appeasement or wishful thinking about our adversaries is folly. It means the betrayal of our past, the squandering of our freedom.
 So, I urge you to speak out against those who would place the United States in a position of military and moral inferiority. You know, I’ve always believed that old Screwtape reserved his best efforts for those of you in the Church. So, in your discussions of the nuclear freeze proposals, I urge you to beware the temptation of pride–the temptation of blithely..uh..declaring yourselves above it all and label both sides equally at fault, to ignore the facts of history and the aggressive impulses of an evil empire, to simply call the arms race a giant misunderstanding and thereby remove yourself from the struggle between right and wrong and good and evil.
 I ask you to resist the attempts of those who would have you withhold your support for our efforts, this administration’s efforts, to keep America strong and free, while we negotiate–real and verifiable reductions in the world’s nuclear arsenals and one day, with God’s help, their total elimination. [Applause]
 While America’s military strength is important, let me add here that I’ve always maintained that the struggle now going on for the world will never be decided by bombs or rockets, by armies or military might. The real crisis we face today is a spiritual one; at root, it is a test of moral will and faith.
 Whittaker Chambers, the man whose own religious conversion made him a witness to one of the terrible traumas of our time, the Hiss-Chambers case, wrote that the crisis of the Western world exists to the degree in which the West is indifferent to God, the degree to which it collaborates in communism’s attempt to make a man stand-alone without God. And then he said, for Marxism-Leninism is actually the second-oldest faith, first proclaimed in the Garden of Eden with the words of temptation, “Ye shall be as gods.”
 The Western world can answer this challenge, he wrote, “but only provided that its faith in God and the freedom He enjoins is as great as communism’s faith in Man.”
 I believe we shall rise to the challenge. I believe that communism is another sad, bizarre chapter in human history whose last–last pages even now are being written. I believe this because the source of our strength in the quest for human freedom is not material, but spiritual. And because it knows no limitation, it must terrify and ultimately triumph over those who would enslave their fellow man. For in the words of Isaiah: “He giveth power to the faint, and to them that have no…might He increased strength. But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary.” [Applause]
 Yes, change your world. One of our founding fathers, Thomas Paine, said, “We have it within our power to begin the world over again.” We can do it, doing together what no one church could do by itself.
 God bless you, and thank you very much. [Long Applause]
The Media Mob is telling you that Trump is losing state after state after state, but that is a big lie. Fake News. They say Trump lost 39 times in court, but the truth is that Trump has four lawsuits and the evidence of fraud is now beginning to show up.
The evidence is shocking!
If you are one of those who are saying that the US election was full of criminal fraud, the Communists on the left side will say you are crazy. But the opposite is the truth. Those who don`t believe it was massive fraud must be crazy.
Late on election night, Trump was a clear winner, but then, suddenly, many swing states stopped counting ballots. In most cases, observers were removed from the counting facilities, and people were ordered to go home.
The video in Georgia shows that four men continued to count after people went home. They also removed ballots. As we all know; things began to change on Wednesday, and the trend was going Biden`s way. On Saturday, the Media Mob said the next president in the US is Biden.
Hundreds of thousands of ballots were counted and 90 percent went to Biden. Late arriving ballots were also counted. In Pennsylvania, 23,000 absentee ballots have impossible postal return dates and another 86,000 have such extraordinary return dates they raise a serious question.
Many of them didn`t match signatures on mail-in-ballots. Many of them were destroyed envelopes, which must contain signatures. There are also plenty of missing votes. In Delaware County, Pennsylvania, 50,000 votes held on 47 USB cards are missing.
More than 20,000 people who no longer met residency requirements cast ballots in Georgia. Biden`s margin is 12,670 votes. According to the Media Mob, Biden is the most popular president in the US ever. He got more votes than Obama and Clinton. What a man.
Record numbers of dead people voted. Thousands of them voted Biden. Ballots in pristine condition without creases, that is, they had not been mailed in envelopes as required by law.
The Marxists don`t want to talk about the election and want people to move on. They say Biden is the next president, so shut up. Sorry, but this is not how a democracy works.
You must be crazy if you don`t realize that something very strange happened in the early hours of Wednesday, November 4, and the days that followed. Not only Republicans should be interested in this odd situation because it should be in everybody’s interest to have a free and fair election.
President Trump got 11 million more votes than in 2016 and that is the largest rise in support ever for an incumbent.
President Obama was comfortably reelected in 2012 with 3,5 million fewer votes than he received in 2008.
Trump is a big success. He performed far better with many key demographic groups. 95 percent of Republicans voted for him, and he did extraordinary well with rural male working-class whites. Not only that; he earned the highest share of all minority votes for a Republican since 1960.
Not only that; Trump grew his support among black voters by 50 percent over 2016. (Biden`s black support fell well below 90 percent, the level below which Democratic presidential candidates usually lose). In addition; 35 percent more of the national Hispanics voted for Trump.
The polls told us that Biden would win. They said Trump didn`t have a chance at all. But they were all wrong. Media and academic polls have an impressive 80 percent record predicting the winner during the modern era.
On the other hand; non-polling metrics forecast Trump`s reelection. The mainstream polls were totally wrong for the first time ever, and every single metric was wrong at the same time.
The Kraken is released and many whistleblowers are now showing up. Some whistleblowers reveal USPS allegedly responsible for tampering with hundreds of thousands of ballots.
What the Trump team is doing is to preserve and protect election integrity. President Trump has been saying from day one, that this is about maintaining a free and fair election and not to overturn the outcome.
Those who don`t want to talk about fraud do not care about democracy. The Fake News is not covering most of the evidence that is coming up, and we must ask why? The Fake News Media Mob isn`t fair and lies to the people. What we see is deceit, which means journalism is dead.
The United States is a nation of rules. Not a nation of rulers and Trump`s team are making sure that the constitution is protected. The journalism we see today is not acceptable. They lie and hide the truth, but people deserve to hear the truth.
The voter fraud the elite team is working with is actually election official fraud. That is how a banana republic is working, and the state legislatures are the ones that make election laws. What actually happened, in this case, is that state and local level officials and all the way up to have changed the rules. (a typical Marxist strategy).
This is how the leftists are doing it. If they don`t like the rules, they simply change them. They change them in the last minute. They manipulate them. The Marxists want to tear down the American system.
The US founders were so brilliant that they anticipated this. That there would be corruption. There would be a foreign influence. There would be attempts to manipulate the outcome of the election. Especially who they called a chief magistrate.
Alexander Hamilton wrote about it in 1788 in an essay called the Federalist No 68. He said there is a problem of corruption of the electors. Every polity must address that. The Republic of Venice had a truly byzantine system of election and selection by a lot of those whose sole responsibility it would be to elect the Doge (the executive).
The sheer number of participants and the unpredictability of the eventual identity of the Venetian electors made vote-buying, influence-peddling, and intimidation impractical. In Federalist 68, as well, Hamiltonn assures the reader that, in the American system, corruption and the influence of faction are avoided by the temporary and limited duty of the electors, the disqualification of federal officeholders to serve, the large number of electors, and the fact that they meet in separate states at the same time.
Presumably, those protections fall away when the House elects the President. But Congressmen have to worry about re-election and, thus, want to avoid corrupt bargains that are odious to the voters.
All the communists in the US and also in Europe are talking about the age of the voters. They want 15 years old teenagers to vote. Yes, they are not kidding. They are serious. Can you believe that? Ask yourself why?
The crime is at the top and this is why people want Trump to «Drain the Swamp.» There is no doubt about the fraud in the election and the establishment is in trouble now.
There is no doubt that Trump is Making America Great Again. The US election will never be the same again, thanks to Trump. The corruption will be more difficult to hide and the US election will be much better in the years to come.
