A History Lesson On Your Social Security Card
Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn’t know this. It’s easy to check out, if you don’t believe it. Be sure and show it to your family and friends. They need a little history lesson on what’s what and it doesn’t matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts.
Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and card were not to be used for identification purposes.
Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION message was removed.
Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. His promises are in black, with updates in red.
1.) That participation in the Program would be Completely voluntary [No longer voluntary],
2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual Incomes into the Program [Now 7.65% on the first $90,000, and 15% on the first $90,000 if you’re self-employed],
3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year [No longer tax deductible],
4.) That the money the participants put into the independent ‘Trust Fund’ rather than into the general operating fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, and no other Government program [Under Johnson the money was moved to the General Fund and Spent], and
5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income [Under Clinton & Gore up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed].
Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month — and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal government to ‘put away’ — you may be interested in the following:
Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent ‘Trust Fund’ and put it into the general fund so that Congress could spend it?
Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?
Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?
AND MY FAVORITE:
Now, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!
And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it! If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will evolve. Maybe not, though. Some Democrats are awfully sure of what isn’t so — but it’s worth a try. How many people can YOU send this to?
Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.
Frederica Wilson paid Imran Awan $138,235 since 2011
The IT guys in the House criminal probe could read these members’ emails
The Awans and their associates collected more than $5 million in pay from congressional offices, (Including $138,235 from Frederica Wilson) often drawing chief-of-staff level pay though there is reason to believe many didn’t even show up. They are suspected of cybersecurity violations.
Arrested Democratic congressional staffer Imran Awan or his relatives — all reportedly under federal criminal investigation — also worked for five other Democratic Florida members of Congress besides U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who is on the hot seat.
U.S. Reps. Stephanie Murphy of Winter Park, Darren Soto of Orlando, Frederica Wilson of Miami Gardens, and Lois Frankel of West Palm Beach, and former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham of Tallahassee, now a gubernatorial candidate, also employed Awan or one of his family members, wife Hina Alvi, and brothers Jamal Awan and Abid Awan, as part-time, shared, information technology employees in their offices.
Senator Robert Menendez, D-NJ, is on trial for taking bribes from a Florida eye doctor, who committed $105 million in Medicare fraud. Among the rewards to Menendez were trips to the Dominican Republic where federal prosecutors say he may have slept with underage hookers.
If he wasn’t a Democrat, this would be the most covered trial of the century.
Federal prosecutors said Monday that they aren’t convinced claims U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez cavorted with underage hookers – widely seen as discredited – are false.
Lawyers for the New Jersey Democrat last week asked a federal judge to dismiss charges that the senator took bribes from a Florida eye doctor, Salomon Melgen, and in exchange used his power to do business and personal favors for him.
The defense said the case is bogus because it sprang from “easily disprovable” claims that Menendez slept with underage prostitutes while hosted by Melgen at a Dominican Republic villa.
Three women who made the prostitution allegations later recanted and said they were paid to level the charges. Neither Melgen nor Menendez was charged with soliciting underage prostitutes.
But in a motion Monday asking the judge to ignore the defense arguments, Justice Department lawyers say the hooker allegations “were not so easily disprovable as the defendants suggest.”
New York Times’ ‘Faux Conservative’ Columnist: “I have never understood the conservative fetish for the Second Amendment.”
Yes this is an actual New York Times editorial by a supposed conservative: “Repeal the Second Amendment”
Calling to repeal the second amendment is to say that the American people are not sovereign and the Revolutionary War should never have been fought. It’s a rejection of the most fundamental principles of our nation.
A reminder from Freedom Outpost:
Today’s politicians are magnifying the crimes they are placed in office to prevent.
They allow crime to be promoted through entertainment and when the crime is committed, they are there in hopes to grab the guns away.
This is exactly how criminals in government operate. They demonize the gun, not the criminal.
This mentality is like blaming spoons and forks for making people fat, as if to say the act is apart from the actor.
Since corrupt politicians refuse to look at history, which can be at the present our greatest teacher, it is very clear that gun banners know exactly what they are attempting to do -– put the Second Amendment in the crosshairs.
Looking back, who has committed murder in the largest degree? Dictators Adolf Hilter, Mao Tze Tung, Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, etc.
Time and time again it has been a corrupt government who is responsible for the mass murder of their own people under the deceptive guise of “gun control,” all of which the said dictators implemented.
Keep in mind these people promised their citizens protection and freedom upon the forfeiture of their guns.
How many times, I ask, does history need to repeat itself?
Let’s parallel history with the present ideology and methodology that those in the past blueprinted to implement gun control.
Adolf Hitler at a dinner talk on April 11, 1942 said:
“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order throughout the occupied Russian territories, and a system of military strong-points must be evolved to cover the entire occupied country.”
Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
Joseph Stalin, the sole leader of the Soviet Union from 1924 to 1953, said:
“If the opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves.”
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Mao Tze Tung, communist dictator of China said:
“War can only be abolished through war, and in order to get rid of the gun it is necessary to take up the gun.”
China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Idi Amin, president of Uganda from 1971 to 1979, said:
“I do not want to be controlled by any superpower. I myself consider myself the most powerful figure in the world, and that is why I do not let any superpower control me.”
Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Pol Pot, who created in Cambodia one of the 20th century’s most brutal and radical regimes, was responsible for killing one million of his own ‘educated,’ yet unarmed citizens.
Our forefathers did not arm the American people for the purpose of hunting, but rather to protect themselves from those who were doing the hunting, namely the tyrant King George. The second amendment is only to vouchsafe our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and to ensure all of the other rights given unto us by our Creator.
The wisdom of the framers of the Constitution once again is found consistent with the lessons of the Bible they used as their bedrock for civil law. The people’s individual protection should always be a primary concern of government “of the people”. In a righteous country, self-government reigns by the constraint of Christian morals. The civil government that desires such a monopoly of force (i.e. they are the only ones with guns) is a threat to the lives, liberty, and property of its citizens, for that government ceases to be “of and for the people.”
George Washington, our first president, said:
“From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good.”
Exposing Mainstream Media lies about Puerto Rico & The US Virgin Islands! The Alt-Left Media has no shame, no credibility. It is just a propaganda tool!
This is what real journalism looks like:
I’ll start off with the most credible source of this information; the Governor of Puerto Rico who served as a Hillary delegate at one point and is a Democrat. The Governor has been fighting back against this myth that Puerto Rico has been abandoned by the Federal government and praising Trump’s support for the territory. https://pjmedia.com/trending/2017/09/25/puerto-ricos-governor-dismantles-media-attacks-trumps-response-hurricane-irma/
Trump was on Twitter as recently as yesterday trying to bring more attention to the fact that Puerto Rico, despite being a US territory, is way behind US states in forms of infrastructure and finances. They simply have too much debt to deal with to financially handle a disaster of this scale on their own. (For those that didn’t know, this is one of the chief reasons they are not a State.) https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/912478274508423168

Dear Alt-Left Mainstream Media, Washington Establishment and Deep State Operatives… The American People can see behind the curtain… And you will pay a heavy price for your dishonesty!
The single most intolerable thing to the American Voting Public, is to treat them with contempt. The vast majority of this country are just people trying to raise a family, make ends meet, pay their bills, and make a better life for their children than they had for themselves. They couldn’t give a crap about your artificially stirred up race wars, and your fantasy oppression, and your attempts to find injustice behind every corner.
But the one thing they do care about, from the deepest parts of their soul, is your elitist attempts to manipulate them. To pull their strings… To make them dance… To pit one segment of society against the other… For your own benefit. In spite of your belief to the contrary, the American Voting Public is not stupid. They can see what you are doing. They can look at the Alt-Left Mainstream News Reports, and they can compare them to actual events. They know that you’re lying to them.
You have managed to convince yourselves that your manipulation is paying dividends. You’ve managed to create a nice little socialist army of masked abusers to beat people up in your name… And you’ve created a Media Echo Chamber to call them heroes. And you trot out the virtue signaling politicians to bask in the glory of your artificial righteousness. You create demons and monsters where none really exist. Because you’ve labeled them Nazis and Skinheads and KKK. And you all tell yourselves that it’s working….
But they can see… They can see that it is false. They know their own hearts. They know that they are good men and women… and that they love their neighbors… and that they’re just trying to make a life for their family… and that they’ve never spent a minute hating anyone. They can see that the fans of hatred and violence and discord are coming not from them, but from you.
Your day of reckoning is coming soon. Americans will go quietly go to the polls in 2018, and in 2020, and they will join to help you understand that they don’t want to be manipulated. Your repudiation will be total. And it will be glorious. You’re not half as clever as you think you are.
Antifa, is now labeled as “Anarchist Extremists” and have been listed among “Domestic Terrorism” groups by New Jersey’s Office of Homeland Security.
Following the election of Donald Trump, the far-Left, George Soros funded, group Antifa rose to suppress the American people’s right of free speech. They have inflicted violence, destroyed property, and tried to silence anyone who disagrees with their Alt-Left views across the country. They harm, stalk, and harass individuals of differing opinions on a day-to-day basis. They are a threat to our First Amendment rights.
Thugs like these have had 8 years of protection under the Obama Justice Department. That ends now!
Anarchist Extremists: Antifa
June 12, 2017 Counterterrorism, Domestic
ANTIFA: INCITING VIOLENCE TOWARD FAR-RIGHT EXTREMISTS
Violent confrontations between Antifa members and white supremacists—as well as militia groups—will likely continue because of ideological differences and Antifa’s ability to organize on social media. In the past year, Antifa groups have become active across the United States, employing a variety of methods to disrupt demonstrations.
RECENT ANARCHIST AND WHITE SUPREMACIST CONFRONTATIONS
On the Left, the 1932 flag of the paramilitary wing of the Communist Party of Germany. On the Right, the 2017 flag of the paramilitary wing of the Democratic Party of America.
Everything theses Alt-Left thugs use today is exactly the same as back then. Their logo, weaponized words, double standards and lack of logic. Its all from Germany 85 years ago. They call everyone Nazis because that is who their opposition in Germany was. Antifa prefaced The National Socialist German Workers’ Party and empowered them. Without Antifa’s violence the Nazi party would have never won anything.
The first German movement to call itself Antifaschistische Aktion was proclaimed by the German Communist Party (KPD) in their newspaper Rote Fahne in 1932 and held its first rally in Berlin on 10 July 1932, then capital of the Weimar Republic. During the early 1930s amidst rising tensions between Nazis and the communists, Berlin in particular has been the site of regular and often very violent clashes between the two groups. In May 1932, the communist paramilitary organisation Rotfrontkämpferbund had been banned and, following a skirmish between Nazi and communist members in the parliament, the Antifaschistische Aktion was founded to ensure that the communists had still a militant wing to rival the paramilitary organisations of the Nazis. After the forced dissolution in the wake of the Machtergreifung in 1933, the movement was revived during the 1980s.
One of the biggest antifascist campaigns in Germany in recent years was the, ultimately successful, effort to block the annual Nazi-rallies in the east German city of Dresden in Saxony, which had grown into “Europe’s biggest gathering of Nazis”.
In October 2016, the Antifa in Dresden campaigned on the occasion of the anniversary of the reunification of Germany on 3 October for “turning Unity celebrations into a disaster” („Einheitsfeierlichkeiten zum Desaster machen“), to protest this display of new German nationalism, whilst explicitly not ruling out the use of violence.
The picture below is from the leftist run Wikipedia. This is the description under the picture on Wikipedia:
Chuck Schumer says that Democrats, not Russia, are to blame for Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Trump.
Apparently Chuck Schumer just had a “Come to Jesus” moment with his thinking on Trump and Russia, Russia, Russia. Or else aliens have abducted the real Chuck Schumer.
From The Washington Post:
After blaming “Russian Collusion” for so long why is this slimy gangster changing his story now?
What on earth did the Democrats do wrong, Chuck?
The American people knew exactly what you Democrats stood for and we voted against it!
Democrats need more people out of work. They need more people without health care. They need more people without insurance. They need more people in pain, economic and otherwise. They need more people incapable of helping themselves. They need more people demanding that government do something, anything, for them. The Democrat Party can only thrive as it is currently constituted when people are suffering. And people have to suffer for the Democrat Party to be great again. How would you like to be a Democrat and a member of that party?
