Democrats to allow convicted criminals to lobby elected officials

The Democrats have a new demographic to practice their identity politics on... convicted criminals.  That's right.  The Democrat Party in New Jersey wants to give convicted criminals -- including those behind bars -- the right to vote.

Yep, a week after the Brady gang, NOW, Action Together, and the new Weather Underground (aka ANTIFA) held rallies across the state to protest the NRA, their party announced its support for turning cell blocks into voting blocks and prison gangs into GOTV operations.  One group of liberals is rallying to take away your ability to protect your family from murder, rape, and robbery; while a different group of liberals is giving electoral power to murderers, rapists, and robbers.  Such symmetry.  It's liberalism at its most brilliant.

Now we all know what happens when a politician smells a vote.  They're going to give something away to get it.  Laws are going to get progressively weaker and weaker.  Especially when the Star-Ledger reports that there are 100,000 criminal votes to be had in New Jersey.  That many votes could easily swing a statewide election and a large prison population would certainly shift the balance in a legislative seat or two. 

Imagine Shawn Custis as a prison ward leader, lobbying the Democrat-majority Legislature, organizing a petition drive (doubtless with the help of Action Together and the Women's March) to get Governor Goldman-Sachs 2.0 and Tammy Jane Fonda to sign into law a community release program that gets him out of doors again... Coming to a average door in an average community like yours. 

And you won't have a weapon to defend yourself when it happens, because the other set of "enlightened folk" will have already solved that for you.  Let's vilify law-abiding gun owners while we pander to actual convicted criminals.  Makes sense... if you want a Mad Max kind of world.

So who is the new political leader from Rahway?  Why it is the Honorable Mr. Custis.  Oh, you don't know him?  Well here, why don't you catch some of his work...

We'd like to hear from NOW... the Women's March... Action of the Hand... and other Democrat groups.  Rally about this, why don't you?

Labor must stand up to Murphy to protect job creation

"Once you get to Wall Street, no matter how you got here, you give up your right to say you are a man of the people." (BBC:  The Last Days Of Lehman Brothers)

Does Phil Murphy have any empathy with New Jersey's working class at all?

During the campaign, his professional spinmeisters made much of his college job washing dishes but let's not confuse that with having a perspective that understands the needs and wants of the working class majority of the state he now leads.  Murphy spent decades in board rooms dedicated to increasing profits at the expense of working men and women.  Murphy fully embraced the globalist philosophy that places profits before all else.

Conservatives -- traditional conservatives -- are conservatives of place.  As President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's great advisor Arthur E. Morgan wrote, the small community is the foundation of democratic life and the source of civilization.  The preservation of the small community -- whether a town or a neighborhood -- and the families and individuals within it, is the highest duty of public policy.  This stands in stark contrast to the Darwinian view taken by Phil Murphy.

In Murphy's world there are winners and losers -- and somebody must lose so that people like him can grow monstrously rich.  Murphy views government as an agency by which those in power can choose winners and losers.  It's called crony capitalism.  Murphy doesn't see communities, he just sees consumers -- individuals to be categorized and placed into silos -- the better to market to and to control. 

Like most modern Democrats, Phil Murphy elevates social distinctions above economic ones.  Seeking to divide the working class majority, Murphy and the Democrats focus on such things as the color of your skin, or who you sleep with, and they try to convince you that this is more important than having a job or keeping your home out of foreclosure. 

When a police officer is sent into a community to enforce a law made by the Democrat-controlled Legislature -- and someone is shot during the enforcement of that law -- people like Murphy tell you that it is the fault of the blue collar police officer, not the white collar Legislature.  They tell you it is about race, so that working class black people will distrust working class white people.  Getting people with the same economic interests to distrust each other is a trick that has been used to govern many times over.

From his years at Goldman Sachs -- and especially from his time in Hong Kong, at Goldman Sachs Asia -- Phil Murphy understands the uses of cheap, often illegal, labor to drive down costs and drive up profits.  The fact that these practices destroy small communities and cause economic migration means nothing to someone with homes in Germany and Italy, as well as New Jersey.  Phil Murphy is a citizen of the world, not a person of place. 

Once upon a time, there was balance in America.  The Republican Party was the party of business and represented the interests of business at the bargaining table that is the Legislature.  Back then, the Democrat Party represented the interests of Labor.  That day is long gone.  The Democrats do not nominate labor leaders to statewide office in New Jersey -- they nominate Wall Street millionaires and white collar professionals.  With its record of electing Democrats to the United States Senate, both Senators could easily be of blue collar vintage, but decidedly, they are not.  

Apart from a few individual legislators in both parties, the working class does not have an advocate in New Jersey.  No party is going to place the interests of class above those of the fashion statements and virtue signaling of the day.  The pussy hat brigade are largely professional women and the wives of professional men.  Check out the hands of all those "resisters" and you will find few with indications of ever having done honest labor.  Bring back the draft and the ANTIFA crowd would scoot off to Canada, for few could face the controlled menace of a drill instructor.  The "revolution" is an inverted one -- of, by, and for the Elite (and, as Phil Murphy said of Wall Street:  "We are the Elite..."). 

That's not to say that there isn't a populist Left.  But it gets stepped on and ignored.  Nobody speaks to its needs.  It says "jobs" and the reply is "more condoms."  And if it doesn't go along with the program of "more condoms" it gets ostracized.   

Labor must pick through the remains of both parties to find people for whom their home town or county still means something.  People who want to see their neighbors and community prosper.  People who understand that charity begins at home and that the false narrative of the "global" community is bullshit marketed to people so that they will welcome the slave labor that will take their jobs.  That narrative destroys two small communities -- that of the migrant willing to work at slave wages and of the neighbor who must agree to work for less to compete. 

As the Democrat Party starts down the path of Governor Goldman Sachs 2.0, it is incumbent upon Labor to hold this phony to account.  Labor can do it.  Labor has been in worse places before and had to fight every inch to gain a place at the bargaining table.  It lost its place by not paying attention.  It is time then, to pay close attention.

The Cause of Labor is the Hope of the World.

ANTIFA and The Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart

By Rubashov

Ever hear of the "Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart"?  It was known better as the Berlin Wall.

Today is an anniversary of sorts for the Berlin Wall.  It has been down as long as it was up.  Which tells you something about the perspective of today's Millennials.

The wall was built by the German Democratic Republic in August 1961 and it fell in November 1989, although it wasn't fully demolished until 1992.  The wall was built by self-described "anti-fascist" leftists who feared that their people would "vote with their feet" and leave "paradise" for the "fascist" West.  The wall was designed to keep people in, not out.

140 people died trying to cross the wall, that we know of.  Thousands of others were arrested for making the choice and attempting to leave.  Doubtless, the anti-fascists thought they were torturing them for their own good.

Words bestow a certain righteousness upon those who  take them.  Call yourself an "anti-fascist" and there is no end of mischief that you can justify.  And especially so when your memory does not reach back so far as to remember such things as the "Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart." 

Pop a pussy hat on your head, call yourself the "Women's March," and follow a leader like Linda Sarsour -- who calls for an American "Jihad" -- or praise a cop-killer like Joanne Chesimard (aka Assata Shakur), a convicted terrorist.  It's all covered by the words.

We're the "Women's March" so we're cool.  Hey, look at the words if you don't believe us.  Just like the "Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart" -- now what can be wrong with that?  Just look at the words.  Disagreeing with us makes YOU a fascist!

Curiously, the term ANTIFA is an German language acronym.  It stands for Anti-Faschistische Aktion.  The "Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart" when translated into the original German is Antifaschistischer Schutzwall.  Read as originally intended the words do have a different punch, don't they? 

When we speak or write of ANTIFA and its allies, perhaps we should make it a point from now on to discard the acronym and go with the original German:  Anti-Faschistische Aktion.  It lends a certain understanding of who it is that we're dealing with.

Understand too that the idea of showing up and mobbing a local congressional office is a tactic with a lineage that comes out of a darker time.  Those who are into such performance art are purposefully mimicking the mob-based hysteria whipped up by the wannabe authoritarians of the past.  Not only the Women's March, but groups like Action Together, RISE, Indivisible, The Resistance is Now, and Anti-Faschistische Aktion, have all participated in these mob-actions with the idea of overturning the outcome of democratic elections, held in accordance  to agreed upon rules. 

Democrat Party candidates in CD11, CD07, and CD03 have all particpated in these Anti-Faschistische Aktion inspired mob actions, for the purposes of subverting democratic elections.  These mob actions have attracted the support of some very questionable people -- like Women's March co-chair Linda Sarsour, who called for "Jihad" against the government of the United States.  When did being "the loyal opposition" morph into a "resistance movement" bent on breaking the law and undermining the American government?  And what does this say about the character of Mikie Sherrill, Lisa Mandelblatt, Tom Malinowski, and Andrew Kim?

Know who your "friends" are and what they stand for -- because you will be held responsible for those you willingly cavort with.  And keep clear of the Anti-Faschistische Aktion crowd who, when holding up a mirror to themselves, see only fascists.

Dem national vice-chair pushes ANTIFA training manual

Congressman Keith Ellison, the Vice Chairman of the Democrat National Committee, hyped the ANTIFA training manual in a tweet to followers yesterday, saying that it would "strike fear in the heart" of the elected American government led by President Donald Trump.

(Twitter/Keith Ellison) Wednesday, 03 Jan 2018 06:14 PM 

You can view Congressman Ellison's tweet here: 

https://www.newsmax.com/politics/keith-ellison-antifa-anti-fascist-handbook-donald-trump/2018/01/03/id/835002/

Ellison is a convert to the Muslim faith who nevertheless entertains some rather anti-religious (not to mention, anti-American) ideas.  As a for-instance, allow us to recommend this controversy noted by Wikipedia on the Congressman's page:

"On July 8, 2007, Ellison discussed the power of the executive branch in a speech before the organization Atheists for Human Rights.  He stated that Dick Cheney said it was 'beneath his dignity in order for him to answer any questions from the citizens of the United States.  That is the very definition of totalitarianism, authoritarianism and dictatorship.'   He went on to say, 'It's almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that.  After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it and it put the leader of that country, Hitler, in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted.  The fact is that I'm not saying September 11 was a U.S. plan or anything like that because, you know, that's how they put you in the nut-ball box — dismiss you.'"

Yep, the Vice-Chair of the DNC is a first class nutjob -- and it was the Women's March/ANTIFA wing of the Democrat Party that insisted on him getting the job.

ANTIFA is an authoritarian far-left organization that supports the idea of "necessary violence" to combat what it perceives as right-wing authoritarianism.  The book being pushed by the DNC's Ellison was written by Mark Bray, an Occupy Wall Street organizer and Dartmouth professor who in remarks to NBC News' Meet The Press last August defended violence against those whose ideas he opposes.

That's right, unlike most sane people who want nothing to do with either Hitler or Stalin, Bray and Ellison want to play Stalin to attack those they perceive as Hitler.  Like we said... first class nutjobs.

After Bray's gig on Meet the Press, Dartmouth President Philip Hanlon released a statement saying "we condemn anything but civil discourse in the exchange of opinions and ideas."

ANTIFA is merely the latest incarnation of the old anarchist-communist movement.  As the Wall Street Journal reported (08/28/17), " Antifa activists also search for and publicize damaging information on their targets or opponents, or launch campaigns pressuring their bosses or companies to fire those opponents."

We saw the ANTIFA playbook in action last year, when Sussex County Democrat Party officials attempted to drive a 90-years-old Sussex County business out of existence and leave dozens of working families without the means to live.  Here is more from the Wall Street Journal report:

Antifa activists believe in censorship and don’t rule out violence, as they showed again Sunday.

...They’re mostly anarchists and anarcho-communists, and they often refer to fellow protesters as “comrades.” Adherents typically despise the government and corporate America alike, seeing police as defenders of both and thus also legitimate targets.

The anti-fascist anarchist website CrimethInc.com recently summarized its philosophy: “In this state of affairs, there is no such thing as nonviolence—the closest we can hope to come is to negate the harm or threat posed by the proponents of top-down violence . . . so instead of asking whether an action is violent, we might do better to ask simply: does it counteract power disparities, or reinforce them?”

Antifa’s activists use the Orwellian-sounding notion of “anticipatory self-defense” to justify direct confrontation. That can include violence, vandalism and other unlawful tactics. Many draw a false moral distinction between damaging private property and “corporate” property.

Antifa activists have also developed their own moral justification for suppressing free speech and assembly. As anarchists, they don’t want state censorship. But they do believe it’s the role of a healthy civil society to make sure some ideas don’t gain currency.

So they heartily approve of the heckler’s veto, seeking to shut down speeches and rallies that they see as abhorrent. Antifa activists also search for and publicize damaging information on their targets or opponents, or launch campaigns pressuring their bosses or companies to fire those opponents.

Words don’t constitute violence, despite what Antifa activists believe. But there are dangerous ideas and practices, and the radical left has embraced several of them. Democracies solve conflict through debate, not fisticuffs. But Antifa’s protesters believe that some ideas are better fought with force, and that some people are incapable of reason.

Implicit in this view is that Antifa alone has the right to define who is racist, fascist or Nazi. It’s a guerilla twist on the culture wars, when a microaggression must be met with a macroaggression.

CNN has an excellent report called "Unmasking ANTIFA".  You can access it here:

The DNC's Ellison is certainly free to push the reading material he chooses to push, as long as he understands that those who take his support and money are going to be asked about it.  That includes YOU Congressman Gottheimer.  So get your excuses ready.

How radical are the Democrats running this year...

Read for yourself.  In their own words.  Here we have Kate Matteson, a Democrat who is running for Assembly against Republicans Parker Space and Hal Wirths.


There you have it.  Kate & Gina "would love support from the Resistance" -- also known as "ANTIFA". 

 

Violent and crazy ANTIFA.  Why would anyone want their support?

 

Kate and her running mates Jennifer Hamilton, Gina Trish, and Dan Perez love Phil Murphy and his sanctuary state plans so much they would pull down a statue of George Washington just to erect something in homage to Murphy.

 

The whole ticket is nuts this year.  Bring back Bill Weightman!
