It’s the Little Things That Matter

In Culture, Faith, Front Page by Allen West

Back when I was in Congress, I did not hold any fear of speaking truth. I still don’t, and never will. When asked about the ability of the leftist media and the Democrat party to openly lie and deceive the American people my response was that “the Democrats have a propaganda machine that even Joseph Goebbels would be proud of.” As you know, the left went apoplectic, furious, and attempted to demonize me for comparing them to Nazis. Hmmm, are they not the ones today who refer to President Trump as Hitler and Mussolini?

At a town hall meeting in Jensen Beach, a kind woman asked about the Democrat party and socialism. I stated that when you look at their policies, such as those of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, you will find some 75-80 who seem to be communists. Well, now the progressive socialist left openly embraces the principles of one Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in their proclamations, much of their rhetoric can be traced back to his planks in the book, the Communist Manifesto.

Maybe I was just a little bit before my time. It does appear that, as we watch the “fake news” media along with the rise of progressive socialism from the Democrat party, I may have been somewhat prescient.

Let’s no longer pretend, it is no longer debatable, the present Democrat party is a radical group of collective socialists, and dangerously so. Look at their anger towards one Howard Schultz who is considering running for President. Here is a man who is representative of the American dream, born and raised in government housing in Brooklyn, poverty, who has risen to become an American and global success story. The left, sadly, is letting us know that they want no challenge to their ideological agenda, beliefs, that are about as un-American as they come.

Take into account the truly disturbing, yes, demonic, bill signed into law by New York’s Governor Cuomo, basically legalizing infanticide. His absurd assertion that “abortion is a right” and his signing of the very oxymoronic “Reproductive Health Act” signals nothing more than the sanctioning of the murder of unborn babies.

That will also mean that the homicide of a pregnant woman may not be deemed as a dual homicide. Along with that, we have Virginia’s Governor Northam, with whom I already have a dispute regarding Second Amendment rights, making his flawed, evil, statement about babies born from an abortion should be left to die. However, we should not be surprised, after all, it was the leftist great savior, Barack Obama, who as a State Senator in Illinois, championed legislation stating that a child surviving an abortion procedure deserves to die.

Who the heck are these people, and even more so, who are those who clap, cheer, and advocate for such darkness?

Tell me, why is it that the American taxpayers provide any funding to an organization founded by a white supremacist, and racist, who made very disparaging comments about blacks? Whose very organization is the leading killer of unborn babies in America and has their clinics predominantly located in minority communities. Yes, Margaret Sanger, and Planned Parenthood.

What is also disconcerting is the lack of a principled response to all of this from the GOP. It is time that the Republican party stop listening to inside the beltway political consultants who tell them to stay away from the social issues. Well, one thing is for certain, the progressive socialist left certainly ain’t!

Which brings me to the next little thing that matters, as reported by Fox News.

“A key committee in the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives is moving to eliminate the God reference from the oath administered to witnesses testifying before the panel, as part of a new rules package expected to be approved this week, according to a draft obtained exclusively by Fox News. 

The draft shows that the House Committee on Natural Resources would ask witnesses to recite only, “Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?”

The rules proposal places the words “so help you God” in red brackets, indicating they are slated to be cut. The words “under penalty of law” are in red text, indicating that Democrats propose to add that phrasing to the oath.

The draft rules also remove the phrase “his or her” throughout the document, changing those two pronouns to “their.” 

The rules additionally modify all references to the committee’s “Chairman” to instead refer only to the committee’s “Chair.” 

Well, no real surprises here, after all, back in 2012, during my reelection campaign, I brought up the fact that the Democrats at their National Convention, voted to remove God from their platform. And when a vote was held to restore the Judeo-Christian God, well, folks in the convention hall there in Charlotte, NC booed. Yep, the Democrats booed God. Yes, I was ridiculed for bringing that fact to light in a campaign ad. I asked who would want to be associated with an American political party that booed God? It appears that God will be kicked out of the House Committee on Natural Resources, just as the progressive socialist left has kicked Him out of schools, and seeks His removal from the public square.

And, whaddya know, we told you about the California State Senator who was removing personal pronouns from her [sorry “they”] committee. Looks like our US House of Representatives has been “Californicated” as the House Committee on Natural Resources is following suit. Seems the Democrats have no love for proper grammar and fail to differentiate between singular and plural pronouns…another product of common core education perhaps.

I will applaud one Republican Representative, Liz Cheney, for her response to all of this,

“It is incredible, but not surprising, that the Democrats would try to remove God from committee proceedings in one of their first acts in the majority,” House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., told Fox News. “They really have become the party of Karl Marx.”

Thanks, Rep. Cheney for saying what needs to be said by every single member of the Republican party . . . many of whom lack the intestinal fortitude to do so.

You may ask, who is the Chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee? It is none other than one of the most prominent members of the Congressional Progressive [Socialist/Communist] Caucus, Rep. Raul Grijalva of Arizona. Maybe ol’ Raul should be more concerned about the largest ever fentanyl seizure that just happened at a border crossing in his home state of Arizona . . . but we don’t need no stinkin’ wall.

We in the military, when we take our oath of service, it ends with those words, “so help me God.” My dad, older brother, myself, and my nephew have all stated those words and were willing to make the last full measure of devotion for our nation and our Constitution, to honor that oath, those words.

See, these little things, and I am being facetious in calling them “little,” do truly matter. Because when taken as a whole, they give us a clear window into who, and what, the Democrat party in America is, and has become. I say this with no mental reservation, or purpose of evasion, today’s Democrat party is a Godless gathering of people who are infatuated with killing our most vulnerable, unborn children. There is something crazed about this party, and even worse, those who willingly support it. They are hell bound to dominate and control our nation, and will do so if not stopped.

My parents taught me an important lesson, “people will know you by the company you keep.” I never want to be associated with the party of the Canaanite god Moloch. Why would you? And if you are someone claiming to be a Christian, why hang out with the folks who booed God?
