Study of Florida Amendments Coming-Up for vote November 6th

1

Amendment No. 1
Increased Homestead Property Tax Exemption

Proposes an amendment to the State Constitution to increase the homestead exemption by exempting the assessed valuation of homestead property greater than $100,000 and up to $125,000 for all levies other than school district levies. The amendment shall take effect January 1, 2019.
Summary: It adds a new homestead tax exemption for the assessed property value between $100,000 to $125,000.
My vote: No.
Comments: This amendment would benefit only 48% of properties that have a homestead exemption. The County stands to lose $12 million dollars in revenues. I find the proposal unfair to non-homestead exemption property which more likely than not would have to pay higher taxes to offset the losses.

Amendment No. 2
Limitation on Property Tax Assessments

Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to permanently retain provisions currently in effect, which limit property tax assessment increases on specified non-homestead real property, except for school district taxes, to 10 percent each year. If approved, the amendment removes the scheduled repeal of such provisions in 2019 and shall take effect January 1, 2019.
Summary: It permanently places a 10-percent cap on the annual increase of non-homestead property tax assessments. The cap was put in place in 2008 but it’s set to expire in 2019.
My vote: Yes
Comments: This amendment is related to Amendment 1 above. Amendment 1 above, is likely to be approved only because there are many properties where owners will save in taxes as a result of the increased homestead exemption, therefore, the County would probably resort to increases in property tax to make-up for reduced revenues from the exemption. If this amendment passes it would put a limit [cap] on possible future increases in property taxes.

Amendment No. 3
Voter Control of Gambling in Florida

This amendment ensures that Florida voters shall have the exclusive right to decide whether to authorize casino gambling by requiring that in order for casino gambling to be authorized under Florida law, it must be approved by Florida voters pursuant to Article XI, Section 3 of the Florida Constitution. Affects articles X and XI. Defines casino gambling and clarifies that this amendment does not conflict with federal law regarding state/tribal compacts. The amendment’s impact on the state and local government revenues and costs, if any, cannot be determined at this time because of its unknown effect on gambling operations that have not been approved by voters through a constitutional amendment proposed by a citizens’ initiative petition process.
Summary: It gives voters, instead of the Legislature, the exclusive right to decide whether a new facility offering casino-style games (slot machines, card games) can open in the state.
My vote: Yes
Comments: On the surface, this amendment empowers us the voters to chose where we want new facilities offering casino-style games. You may want to vote “No” if you feel that voters in one part of the state would prevail in deciding where a gaming facility can open – this would probably be unbalanced as lobbying groups and other large entities would rally and gather large amounts of signatures needed for a referendum.

Amendment No. 4
Voting Restoration Amendment

This amendment restores the voting rights of Floridians with felony convictions after they complete all terms of their sentence including parole or probation. The amendment would not apply to those convicted of murder or sexual offenses, who would continue to be permanently barred from voting unless the Governor and Cabinet vote to restore their voting rights on a case by case basis. The precise effect of this amendment on state and local government costs cannot be determined, but the operation of current voter registration laws, combined with an increased number of felons registering to vote, will produce higher overall costs relative to the processes in place today. The impact, if any, on state and local revenues cannot be determined. The fiscal impact of any future legislation that implements a different process cannot be reasonably determined.
Summary: It restores voting rights to former felons who served their sentence, including parole and probation, with the exception of those convicted of murder and sexual offenses.
My vote: Yes
Comments: I personally don’t see the reason why continue to punish someone in any way after they have paid their price to society. If you decide to vote “No” on this amendment you would actually be imposing an additional penalty on someone who has paid their dues.

Amendment No. 5 
Supermajority Vote Required to Impose, Authorize, or Raise Taxes or Fees.

Prohibits the legislature from imposing, authorizing, or raising a state tax or fee except through legislation approved by a two-thirds vote of each house of the legislature in a bill containing no other subject. This proposal does not authorize a state tax or fee otherwise prohibited by the Constitution and does not apply to fees or taxes imposed or authorized to be imposed by a county, municipality, school board, or special district.
Summary: It requires a two-thirds vote in the Florida House and Senate — instead of a simple majority — to raise state taxes.
My vote: No
Comments: This is a tricky proposal – a play of numbers. The total number of members in the Legislature is 160, therefore, if this amendment passes it allows a minority to kill a proposal. If we need to make tax cuts in the future, this measure would make it almost impossible. If you decide to vote “Yes”, the contrary is true, it would not allow a minority to kill a proposal.

Amendment No. 6
Rights of Crime Victims; Judges

Creates Constitutional rights for victims of crime; requires courts to facilitate victims’ rights; authorizes victims to enforce their rights throughout criminal and juvenile justice processes. Requires judges and hearing officers to independently interpret statues and rules rather than deferring to government agency’s interpretation. Raises mandatory retirement age of state justices and judges from seventy to seventy-five years; deletes authorization to complete judicial term if one-half of the term has been served by retirement age.
Summary:
• Expands the scope of victims’ rights under the Florida Constitution, including victims’ rights to due process, under what’s known as Marsy’s Law;
• Raises the mandatory retirement age of Florida judges from 70 to 75;
• Prohibits state courts from deferring to an administrative agency’s interpretation of a state statute or rule.
My Vote: Yes
Comments: My primary reason for voting “Yes” was based primarily on my contention that gives “rights” of due process is good enough for me. And…that is the essence of Marsy’s Law. You may want to vote “No” if you fear that the amendment includes other “unrelated” topics such as raising the retirement age of judges and the prohibition of state courts deferring to administrative agencies

Amendment No. 7
First Responder and Military Member Survivor Benefits; Public Colleges and Universities

Grants mandatory payment of death benefits and waiver of certain educational expenses to qualifying survivors of certain first responders and military members who die performing official duties. Requires supermajority votes by university trustees and state university system board of governors to raise or impose legislatively authorized fees if law requires approval by those bodies. Establishes existing state college system as constitutional entity; provide governance structure.
Summary:
• Requires mandatory payment of death benefits and waives some educational expenses to qualifying survivors of first responders and military members who die performing official duties, which is already in state law, and adds paramedics and emergency medical technicians to the list;
• Requires supermajority votes by university trustees and state university system board of governors to raise or impose fees;
• Establishes the existing Florida College System as a constitutional entity.
My Vote: No
Comments: My primary reason for voting “No” lies in the fact that I just do not like “bundled” proposals. More so when the proposals have nothing to do with each other. My contention is that if you want to change, add or detract changes to existing law, proposals should be introduced independently of each other to achieve a fair and balance decision. If you decide to vote “Yes” on this amendment you would be dealing with: 1) Death taxes, 2) Universities way of raising money and 3) our College System.

Amendment No. 9
Prohibits Offshore Oil and Gas Drilling; Prohibits Vaping in Enclosed Indoor Workplaces.

Prohibits drilling for the exploration or extraction of oil and natural gas beneath all state-owned waters between the mean high water line and the state’s outermost territorial boundaries. Adds use of vapor-generating electronic devices to current prohibition of tobacco smoking in enclosed indoor workplaces with exceptions; permits more restrictive local vapor ordinances.
Summary:
• Prohibits oil and gas drilling in offshore areas controlled by the state (it doesn’t apply to federal waters);
• Prohibits the indoor use of e-cigarettes and vaping devices, with the exception of stand-alone bars or hotel rooms where smoking is allowed.
My Vote: Yes
Comments: Even though I totally disagree in bundling proposals such as I mention in Amendment 7 above, I just happen to agree with the two bundled proposals. First, I am all for oil and gas drilling anywhere only because I see this as becoming independent from other oil producing countries. As far as the indoor use of e-cigarettes, I am all for banning them as I consider them a mere substitution of a really bad vice. Vis-à-vis, if you decide to vote “No” you would be voting for limiting our ability to become independent in oil and gas production. And, you would be accepting the use of e-cigarettes and vaping devices wherever you are.

Amendment No. 10
State and Local Government Structure and Operation

Requires legislature to retain department of veteran’s affairs. Ensures election of sheriffs, property appraisers, supervisors of elections, tax collectors, and clerks of court in all counties; removes county charters’ ability to abolish, change term, transfer duties, or eliminate election of these offices. Changes annual legislative session commencement date from March to January; removes legislature’s authorization to fix another date. Creates office of domestic security and counterterrorism within department of law enforcement.
Summary:
• Requires the Legislature to start its annual session in January instead of March during even-numbered years;
• Creates a counter-terrorism and security office within the Florida Department of Law Enforcement;
• Requires the state to have a Department of Veterans Affairs, which already exists.
• Requires that all 67 counties elect their sheriff, tax collector, elections supervisor and clerk of courts. Several Florida counties, such as Miami-Dade, now have at least one of these positions appointed.
My vote: No
Comments: Again, I find it totally absurd to bundle 4 different independent proposals under one amendment. I feel anytime this is done, someone is trying to sneak one pass me. Matter of fact, I would like to see legislation introduced banning the bundling of proposals in the electoral ballots. If you decide to vote “Yes”, you, again, would be voting on: 1) a new start date for the Legislature sessions, 2) create a new counter-terrorism within the Fla. Dept. of Law Enforcement, 3) requires the State Dept. to have a Dept. of Veteran Affairs which already exists, and 4) all Fla. Counties elect their officials.

Amendment No. 11
Property Rights; Removal of Obsolete Provision; Criminal Statutes.

Removes discriminatory language related to real property rights. Removes obsolete language repealed by voters. Deletes provision that amendment of a criminal statute will not affect prosecution or penalties for a crime committed before the amendment; retains current provision allowing prosecution of a crime committed before the repeal of a criminal statute.
Summary:
• Deletes language in the Constitution that prevents non-citizens from buying, selling, owning or inheriting property;
• Deletes language approving a high-speed rail;
• Deletes the “Savings Clause,” which forbids making changes to criminal sentencing laws retroactive.
My Vote: Yes
Comments: I don’t have a problem with non-citizens buying, selling, owning or inheriting property in the State. I am in agreement for a provision that an amendment of a criminal statute will not affect the prosecution or penalties for a crime committed before the amendment. And, finally, I am for the existing statutes that allow prosecution of a crime committed before the repeal of a criminal statute.

Amendment No. 12
Lobbying and Abuse of Office by Public Officers

Expands current restriction on lobbying for compensation by former public officers; creates restrictions on lobbying for compensation by serving public officers and former justices and judges; provides exceptions; prohibits abuse of a public position by public officers and employees to obtain a personal benefit.
Summary: It expands ethics rules for public officials — elected officials, judges and government employees — and essentially bans them from lobbying the state and federal governments during their terms of office and for six years after .
My Vote: No.
Comments: I believe that “lobbying” is a part of our democracy – the right to influence others is a democratic right and I don’t believe in bans to this right. If you decide to vote “Yes”, you would be for limiting lobbying.

Amendment No. 13
Ends Dog Racing

Phases out commercial dog racing in connection with wagering by 2020. Other gaming activities are not affected.
Summary: It ends commercial greyhound and other dog racing by 2020 while allowing tracks to continue to offer other gaming activities such as card games.
My Vote: No
Comments: I am extremely biased on this proposal. I just happen to love dog-tracks. I happen to be a dog racing fan and love when season starts. If you vote “Yes” you are actually joining supporters claiming that there is a high number of dogs’ death related.

Gillum vs. DeSantis

0

I think you will agree we me in that the forthcoming Mid-Term elections are probably one of the most important elections in our lifetime, bar none. The reason is simple – these elections are, no more no less than a referendum on more of the ‘same-old’, ‘same-old’ vs. Trump’s ‘making America great again’ – that simple!

Now, I say that if you live in Florida like I do, independently of what is going at the national level, we here in Florida got our hands full regadless. I am referring to the gubernatorial race between republican candidate Ron DeSantis and democrat Andrew Gillum.

I am going to try and be as succinct as I possibly can with what is at stake. Its elementary really, a vote for Andrew Gillum is a vote for us to become a Marxist state. A vote for DeSantis is a vote for capitalism and democracy. Matter of fact, if you really think about it, we have come to a unique new chapter in political history – our choices in any and all elections come down to either you are voting for candidates in a re-invented progressive, marxist democratic party or you are voting for a conservative, constitutionalist republican party – that’s it. The times of “moderate” democrats are over – they are passe, obsolete, bygone.

Back to our darling candidate Gillum. Beware, this guy follows in the image of Barack Obama. As well as Obama did, Gillum engergizes the democrat’s base. He is black and has a charismatic presence as well as soaring rhetorical skills – that’s about it. Other than that, this guy is your quintessential liberal democrat. Gillum is an unabashed champion for Medicare-for-all-single payer health system, just like democratic loony toon queen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez up in N.Y.

Among other things, Gillum is a Trump-hater, who says, if elected, he will try to impeach Trump; he is for gun-control; the abolishment of ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcment] agency; he condems Israel; wants 1 billion dollars in new taxes for Florida – just to name a few.

As a Mayor of Tallahassee, Gillum has been allegedly accused of government corruption while there is currently an FBI investigation looking into his possible wrong-doing and participation in the corrpuption scheme. Make a long story short, this guy friends is bad news, and I mean really bad new. Even if we win both houses in the national elections, if this Gillum guy is elected as the next Florida governor – our great state is in for some radical changes, morevoer, it would be quite a permutation from all the good things we enjoyed under governor Rick Scott.

As we speak, Gillum is leading the polls by as many as 9 points. Scary! As much as I don’t really believe some of these polls, as much as I know we just cannot take anything for granted. Point being, I am urging all voters to get off your butts and your recliners and go out an vote – a vote for Gillum is a vote for the Clinton, Polosi, Schumer, and all the gang of Marxist progressives who are ruining this country.

National polls are showing that DeSantis backers are mostly men and hispanics while Gillum’s are women and black. For the sake of our state, I urge all voters to cross demographic lines and do not vote for this Gillum. I specially urge all black voters out there to go out on voting day and do a “Kanje West” liberation move. Put on your MAGA hats and vote for DeSantis. You will be glad you did.

Well friends, there is little else I need to say as I consider all of you in my reading audience intellectually qualified to know what is good for us or what isn’t. I pray that we win our guberantorial race as much as I am terrified of Gillum’s Marxist platform and hope you are too. May God save us.

To Kill A Mockingbird

You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.

 

Atticus provides clear evidence that the accusers, Mayella Ewell and her father, Bob, are lying: in fact, Mayella propositioned Tom Robinson, was caught by her father, and then accused Tom of rape to cover her shame and guilt. Atticus provides impressive evidence that the marks on Mayella’s face are from wounds that her father inflicted; upon discovering her with Tom, he called her a whore and beat her. Yet, despite the significant evidence pointing to Tom’s innocence, the all-white jury convicts him.

~ Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

We have just gone through an episode in our history that unfortunately reflects the worst of our politicians and our citizens. I do not wish to revisit the episode of Justice Kavanaugh’s appointment to the SCOTUS and Dr. Ford’s allegation of a sexual assault when they were both teenagers.

I do wish that all of us reflect, not on the merits or lack thereof of the case, but on our past, our present, and our future as a Nation. A good place to start is looking at Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize novel, To Kill a Mockingbird.

In this book, Ms. Lee describes, as told through the eyes of a child, life in an Alabama small town in an era in our past where we had discrimination based on race, and judicial due process was denied to blacks.

An accusation of rape against a black man by a white woman resulted in a guilty verdict even if the case presented had ample evidence to the contrary. The attorney representing the accused and his children were victimized by the town’s people including physical attempts that threatened their lives.

The book describes one of our country’s darker eras when some were labeled guilty a priori and justice served only part of the population. We have come a long way, if not all the way. Discrimination because of skin color should be unacceptable and that includes white, black, and anything in between.

The narrator, a young girl named Scout, and her brother grew up attempting to understand why people acted so mean and lived through the experience and abuse their father went through as a lawyer, defending the accused young man.

The lesson learned was that justice should be blind, everyone has a right to defend him/herself from accusation and judged innocent until proven guilty, not as it happened the opposite way.

Are we as a society going to regress to a state where personal ideology, political ambitions, sentiments of revenge, and hate going to determine our judgment? Are we going to abandon fair play and rationality? Are we going to be led by the worst of our instincts instead of an outlook of love, compassion, and fairness? Are we going to discriminate because of race and gender instead of proof of guilt?

Harper Lee gave us a beautiful answer:

“Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corn cribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”

How Sweet It Is!

First, I want to congratulate the nation for prevailing – for our win in the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh as Justice of the Supreme Court of the U.S. I personally believe that, as time goes by and other generations look back in history, this day will be remembered as nothing short than a referendum on good vs. evil where the former prevailed. Throughout it all, there were some key figures who I believe made it all happen for the better – figures whom we should all hail and be especially grateful to as a nation, only because their individual and collective rising to the occasion may have, in fact, changed the course of history and the future of this nation – significant turning point, I may add!

My first vote of gratitude goes to South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, for the gallant way in which he stood-up to all the hypocrites on the other side of the aisle. My next vote goes to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for his swiftness in making the closure vote happen despite an army of militant opposers trying to derail the nomination. However, my top award as [the] most significant role in Kavanaugh’s win goes to Maine’s Senator Susan Collins. Senator Collins’ speech on the Senate Floor yesterday shall forever remain as one of [the] most memorable moments in political history, albeit the most memorable one in recent Senate history – a benchmark speech which gave credence to the true character of Americans in this, the greatest nation on the face of the earth. The courage shown by Senator Collins in her stunningly marvelous speech will, no doubt, serve us all well as a reminder and inspiration of what America is all about; a new breath of hope for all. – As far as I am concerned, Senator Collins’s speech was [the] final thrust needed to win the nomination, most probably serving to sway the swing votes of Republican Senator Jeff Flake and dissenting Democrat Senator Joe Manchin.

From my perspective, the Kavanaugh win, goes well beyond a partisan victory of a Justice to the Supreme Court of the Land – much beyond I should say. The Kavanaugh win, to me, represents a light at the end of the tunnel – the same light that lit us when Donald Trump was elected President in 2016. Frankly, I have been rather pessimistic as of late regarding the future of this great nation if only because of the astounding polarization prevalent amongst the people of the land; amongst races, classes; amongst all – even to where ‘sports’ one the last remaining political sanctuaries is to be no more, as even the NFL now shares in the divide with the repulsive anthem-kneeling controversy.

I had gone as far as predicting an inevitable coming of another Civil War if only because I see an upending hatred, divisiveness, and loathing towards one another, such as that historically seen in the political landscapes preceding the takeover of Totalitarian regimes – of Communism throughout past history. I am not altogether sure that we are out of the woods just yet; not even with the Kavanaugh victory, however, I can’t help but rejoice in the moment as it brings renewed optimism in the fact that Americans are finally awakening to a reality which we all watched together, this time around succinctly confined to our T.V. receptacles during the last four weeks of the infamous Kavanaugh smearing campaign.

In the last few days, we were all able to watch live and in color the perversity of a well-entrenched militant cadre of disdainful hypocrites, who are not willing to stop a nothing in their quest for power. Let’s not forget that Karl Marx believed that a socialist movement would develop rapidly in the U.S. because: “Socialists would take over the Democratic Party.”

I promised myself that I would keep this narrative today short and straightforward. I am rejoicing in our victory today. The Kavanaugh factor, as I have come to label this ugly chapter, represents, again, a renewed breath of optimism in the fact that there are more good Americans out there than scoundrels such as those we saw trying to ruin the life of a great man. I truly hope that all the rats in the Senate Judiciary Committee will rot in hell and turn blue with envy in yet another major defeat, such as the one they all suffered back in 2016 when Donald Trump was unexpectedly elected to become our president.

For the record, I am hopeful our GOP party will keep both the House and the Senate in the Mid-Term elections as well as win the presidency again in 2020. Come 2024, I am proposing a presidential ticket of Graham and Collins.

As far as all of you progressive leftists [communists] I summon you to leave the U.S., go with George Soros and take your revolution elsewhere -Venezuela, Cuba maybe! There is a great fit for you all in these countries. They love to clinch their fists there just like you do, ask any Venezuelan or Cuban in exile – they’ll tell you.

In ending, I will say this, I feel truly sorry for all women in America who have been the victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment. I think that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, has done you, nor the women in the “Me Too” movement, no favor at all. I am sorry to say but I cannot be as sympathetic or empathetic towards Dr. Ford, as I was when I first heard her testimony in the Senate last week. At first, she came through as a truly credible witness. With every day that went by, however, I found her testimony to be less and less credible. Matter of fact, I am not going to be as politically correct as most everyone in the nation has been with the woman.

After-the-fact, in the aftermath of her testimony, I think Dr. Ford’s credibility dwindled as more and more holes were poked in it. I can accept and understand that this woman could have been the victim of some sexual attack by someone. I cannot accept, nevertheless, that anyone, not her, not anyone, would bring false allegations in front of an entire nation about a person’s character unless they were 100% true and could be factually corroborated – just look at what her allegations have done to this man and his family.

I think the good doctor needs professional psychiatric h, including therapy to recover the lost memory. Moreover, I think she needs to be treated for ‘character assassination’. I blame all the people around her; her lawyers; family; democrats; the Washington Post and all accomplices who brainwashed this woman into believing her unfounded and isolated fabrication of facts. As far as I am concerned whether it is a trauma and whether she believes her story to be true, her allegations were not corroborated at all, thus making her narrative a complete and utter farce – enough of the politically correct diplomacy – only problem…her flawed allegations could have, in fact, changed the course of a nation. You think about it! Enough of this walking on eggshells with this Dr. Ford. I truly hope that she and her lawyers are sued for libel and character defamation. Small price to pay compared to all the damage done.

Anyways my fellow-Americans, I am a happy camper today. I am going to go out and celebrate our victory for whatever it is worth – even if is just another battle in a greater ideological war that is here to stay. Today, and for now though, there is cause for celebration by all honorable Americans. As noted, I have praised those whom I find to be responsible for today’s win, nonetheless, I have not praised the ultimate responsible for it all – that is, I have not praised God, who made it possible for Democracy, the Republic, and the rule-of-law to prevail over the “deep-state” conspiracy to detach this nation from His omnipotent powers to make it all possible. May God save us always and may God save America. How sweet it is!

Congratulations America!

Senate votes to advance the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the U.S.  Republican swing votes of Senators Jeff Flake and Susan Collins went “Yes”.  Democrat swing vote of Joe Manchin also went “Yes”.  Republican Senator, Lisa Murkowski dissented as she voted “No”.  We are one step closer to closing the deal and putting to rest one the most despicable chapters in the political history of our nation.  God save America!

Life Beyond Kavanaugh

0

I think that, most of you will agree with me in the fact that this Brett Kavanaugh nomination as a Justice for the Supreme Court of the U.S., has been nothing short than one of the most despicable displays of the prevalent state of political decay and chaos in our nation. Whether or not Judge Kavanaugh is confirmed, I personally believe that what we, as a nation, have seen over the past four weeks has been nothing short than one of the most shameful chapters in political history, bar none.

Notably, since September 4th, the opening date of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, it appears the world came to a grinding-halt and there was nothing else happening other than, you guess it, the Kavanaugh / Dr. Ford story. Just like that, all other current events and news became extraneous and inconsequential including but not limited to the alleged Russian-collusion story.

Seems as though every time we turned on our T.V.’s, listened to the radio, or read our newspapers, there were no other headline captions other than the Kavanaugh confirmation story. At times, frankly, obsessively micro-dissected, bordering on the preposterously ridiculous. While others chose to continue their political autopsies of the hearing itself, I, on the other hand, opted to look upon the spectacle much the same way that researchers do in a laboratory – that is, I look upon the Kavanaugh saga as a giveaway version of what is in store for our nation in years ahead.

If you think about it, all that has transpired in the Kavanaugh hearings mirrors with striking semblance most all that is happening in our nation as a whole, albeit a scary thought at that. Again, just think about it. To begin with, the Kavanaugh hearing is nothing but a referendum on Roe vs. Wade – it’s all about what some want the rest to belief. No more no less. It is all a magnanimous power-struggle. In the hearing, we have seen it all. We have seen the prevalent polarization that exists in our nation today; the partisan divide; the resentment; the fierce desire for the end to justify the means – and, the most treacherous and threatening of all which is an obvious, very obvious, departure from our traditions; a departure from the rule of law.

Regretfully, what I see in the Kavanaugh hearing is but the aftermath of years of a cultural revolution in the makings. What I see, plain and simple is a virtual reality of what Barack Hussein Obama committed to do while declaring in a speech in Columbia, Missouri on October 30th, 2008, on the cusp of his historic presidential election, as he said: “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” And…there are, many of you out there, still, that don’t get it, do you?

The Kavanaugh farce, again, is all but a micro-model resulting from the fundamental transformation started by a God-dam communist such as was this Barack Obama. A great majority of Americans, I hate to say, live in La-la land – many of you thinking that communism could or would never happen in our nation – not here, not in the U.S. you claim. Well, guess what? Got news for you all. It is happening and it is happening now, here, today. What we have all seen in the Kavanaugh hearing is as a compelling proof as we can have that communism is abundantly present everywhere around us. Take all that the democrat Senators have done to this man [Kavanaugh] and you need not go any further. Take the fact that Democrats had decided to vote “No” on Kavanaugh’ hearing even before the start of it all and you need not go any further. Anarchy at its best. To democrats Kavanaugh was not a “person”, he was an obstacle, with Dr. Ford, becoming the perfect “dimwit pinhead” to be used for clearing the path to their cynical objective.

Case you had not noticed or have been temporarily out-of-touch with reality, every day that goes by, as a nation, we dis-join further and further apart from the rule-of-law, thus the prevalent opposition to nominate Brett Kavanaugh to the highest court of the land. Notwithstanding all the transformation that has taken place, as far as I am concerned, [the] most compelling evidence that we are amid a cultural permutation comes by way of the prevalent belligerence and hostility. Americans are facing a homegrown wave of violence – not by coincidence I may add.

As recently as last night a Georgetown associate professor C. Christine Fair suggested that all the “white” senators defending Brett Kavanaugh “deserved miserable deaths as they take their last gasps,” she wrote. “Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine…” On June 14th, 2017 Republican House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was shot while practicing for an annual charity baseball game. Recently, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had to leave a restaurant where she was having dinner with her husband as she was harassed by an unruly mob of activist protesters merely because she worked for Donald Trump. Ditto with an incident in Washington, D.C., where Republican Senator Ted Cruz was also harassed by a leftist mob who went as far a spewing “life-threatening” messages to employees of the restaurant. How could you not have this kind of irrational behavior when that bitch, Democratic Representative, Maxine Waters calls for activists to publicly harass members of the Trump administration. We also have seen a rash of vandalism against historical American figures. What have we come to being as a nation?

Despite all the good we have seen coming from this Trump presidency, we see riots, protests, demonstrations, rallies, as unruly mobs chant to the tunes of lynching cops – all the while as they inconspicuously raise their “clenched-fists” – a symbolic pedigree tribute to communism; a symbol of solidarity, defiance and resistance, which brings me to the core of my narrative today. Blinds off everyone. What we are witnessing is not, I repeat, it is not your traditional tugs-of-war along party lines. What we are witnessing, instead, is an organized and militant cultural revolution – a communist revolution. Our enemies are well organized à la Saul Alinsky.

The democratic party should, in fact, change their name to the more appropriate title of “the Communist Party”. Don’t kid yourselves friends, they are a coherent and powerful army of militant activist radicals, excessively well-funded by the likes of men such as George Soros. They stick together and support one another thru thick and thin. They are united, much more so than we conservative Republicans. Take again, the Kavanaugh circus as a typical model of everything that goes on in the dirty swamp. While democrats, under the leadership of Chuck Schumer, Naci Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein and the rest of them, have remained steadfastly opposed to Kavanaugh’s confirmation, Republicans, on the other hand, show their share of party absconders and run-away deserters such Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski and Maine Senator Susan Collins. God-forbid any democrat senators would have dared dissent with their majority, such as these three have.

So, where does this all end? I choose to call it: “Life after Kavanaugh”. As everything in life, we are in a constant state of evolution. A year from now, two years from now, the Kavanaugh dilemma will be “a-thing-of-the-past” – no more, no less. Vis-à-vis, the ongoing revolution will continue as it is here to stay, if ever becoming that more entrenched in the inevitable transformation to “socialism” – the preferred pseudonym to what is in reality “communism”, regretfully, as much as the latter is still left out of the political lexicon, even by the most outspoken among conservative icons such as Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and others, albeit a telltale sign of the collective denial that prevails to this day regarding the most hideous of all political creeds in the history of mankind.

What I see, dear friends, is not, as one would tend to believe, a Trump-hating culture. Trump’s loathing, abhorrence, is not so much the revulsion of a person as it is an unhinged resentment for [the] person who stood in the way of the revolution. [The] person who on November 8th, 2016 became the President-elect of the U.S., thus hampering the communist revolution from the impending and peaceful takeover, through democratic elections – that simple.

So…ask you may, what is ahead? Well, whether Kavanaugh is confirmed or not; whether Donald Trump is re-elected in 2020 or not; whether or not Democrats get back the majority of the House and/or the Senate, or both, regardless, there will come a point in the future of the land when democrats regain power again by electing one of the them to the presidency – no “ifs” or “buts” about it. It will happen. When it happens, it will just be a continuation of what Donald Trump interrupted in 2016. Our mainstream media, our colleges and universities, and many of the once hailed institutions of the nation, such as the FBI, the Department of Justice and others, have already proven to be plagued by communists, a/k/a Trump-haters, thus the inconceivable attacks on all the headway made by the latter both here and abroad. To be clear, there is nothing, absolutely nothing that Donald Trump can do for nation; not our economic surge, nor the accomplishments and achievements shown in the Geo-political landscape; the lessening of a potential nuclear war with N. Korea; the revisited global trade practices; nothing will ever be credited to Mr. Trump, much in the same way that Brett Kavanaugh’s historic greatness will never be acknowledged by democrats, as much as all the good that comes from a re-surging wave of Republicanism is looked upon as a mere detraction in the Democrat’s upending quest to regain power.

I say, whether we care to accept it or not, whether it will happen in our lifetime or in the future, I don’t know when, but what I do know is that, at some point in the future of this nation, there will be the need for yet another Civil War. My seemingly outlandish conclusion is not, believe me, as bizarre as you may make it out to be. Matter of fact, I honestly think we are closer to it than we realize. As I said earlier, our present struggles have already been inflicted with “violence”, thus bringing us one step closer for either accepting Obama’s infamous transformation proposal and/or toppling the revolution through warfare – much in the same fashion as that already adopted by the enemy – Democrats and their disguised Communist Party. May God save us. May God save America.
