This is a blog of current events and issues that affect most of our lives. There are fundamental flaws in how American government operates today,contrary to the Constitution and the vision of a representative republican form of governance. I intend doing something about it: by educating and informing others who are not even aware of the dangers.
Every now and than I receive an email about what is going on in this union of nation States that I feel is not only accurate, but also compelling. Many people will scoff and shrug it off as just tinfoil hat conspiracy theorists. And then one comes along from an elected office holder that requires closer scrutiny. This one, even Snopes shows as true. I offer it to the Esteemed Readers of this site and the Fix America followers to judge for themselves.
“We know Dick Lamm as Governor of Colorado. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Last week there was an immigration-overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of America’s finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Davis Hansen talked about his latest book, ‘Mexifornia,’ explaining how immigration – both legal and illegal was destroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.
Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America.
The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, ‘If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let’s destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that ‘An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.’
‘Here is how they do it,’ Lamm said:
‘First, to destroy America, turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bi-cultural country… History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: ‘The histories of bilingual and bi-cultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy.’ Canada, Belgium, Malaysia , and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, Corsicans and Muslims.’
Lamm went on:
‘Second, to destroy America, invent ‘multiculturalism’ and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. Make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal; that there are no cultural differences. Make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.
‘Third, we could make the United States a ‘Hispanic Quebec ‘ without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: ‘The apparent success of our own multi-ethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricity and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.’ Lamm said, ‘I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities.’
‘Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, un-assimilated, under-educated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school.’
‘My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of ‘Victimology…’ I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority.’
‘My sixth plan for America’s downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other- that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precept. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. ‘E. Pluribus Unum’ — From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the ‘pluribus’ instead of the ‘Unum,’ we will ‘Balkanize’ America as surely as Kosovo.’
‘Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits. Make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of ‘diversity.’ I would find a word similar to ‘heretic’ in the 16th century – that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like ‘racist’ or ‘xenophobe’ halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bilingual/bi-cultural country, having established multi-culturalism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of ‘Victimology,’ I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America , it must always be good I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them.’
In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said, ‘Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis’s book ‘Mexifornia.’ His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don’t read that book.’
There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate ‘diversity.’ American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America Take note of California and other states. To date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell’s book ‘1984.’ In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: ‘War is peace,’ ‘Freedom is slavery,’ and ‘Ignorance is strength.’
Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don’t get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially The American Dream.”
If I were to run for the office of Governor, I would not run on a party agenda, instead, I would run on a freedom agenda, to give the People of my State the right to their own destiny. I will promise to veto any act of legislation that abrogates the rights of the People. I will promise that I will not seek multiple terms of office for I feel that while it is an honor to serve the People, it is an honor to be passed along to another individual for the privilege of serving with such honor.
As Governor, I will call together all of the county sheriffs and let them know that they are the highest elected peace officers and as such, they are tasked with protecting the rights of the People, not enforcing the codes and statutes that deny the People their natural rights. I l will request that they work with the People to form militias, and help to train them to be good enforcers of the law and maintain the peace in their communities.
I will call upon the Secretary of State to audit every single department in the State administration for corruption and waste. And I will require my State Attorney General to vigorously prosecute any offenders to the law of the State.
I will direct the Oregon Department of Education to develop a home schooling curriculum or find one that will best suit the needs of the students of Oregon. These will be sold to parents who will then get significant tax deductions or elimination of taxes that fund public education. I will encourage the local cities and counties to take responsibility for the education of the local students rather than meet standards that will not benefit them in their life pursuits.
I will insist that all gun laws in violation of the Constitution of the united States and Article I Section 27 of the Oregon Constitution be repealed. The freedom and Rights of the People shall not be abrogated for the illusion of security by the passage of laws that only prevent the law-abiding from exercising their natural rights of self defense and the defense of their communities and Oregon the state. I will request that the legislature also pass resolutions that make it a crime for federal agents and officers to come into our state to enforce statutes that violate the Constitution(s) and prosecute them under state law.
I will insist that all city and county officers must uphold federal immigration and naturalization laws as it is the province of the federal government to pass and enforce such laws, under the constitutional mandates of the federal body.
I will teach all who choose to seek public office that they represent the People and as such must protect the freedom and rights of the People at all times, even when it seems to be an unpopular choice with a select special interest group(s). No group of individuals will ever have more privileges or rights than the rest of the People.
I will direct the state agencies that oversee health and welfare to remove any illegal immigrant from the rolls of privileges granted, and open up more competition to health care maintenance and insurance providers to drive the costs down. And like the proposal put forth by Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, I would allow groups to form and negotiate coverage for their members without government restrictions or subsidies.
And finally, I will look to revise the state election rules to make primaries open to all candidates and change the counting to county majority rather than state majority, giving the other 30 counties in the state an equal voice in the outcome of all state and national elections. One county equals one vote based on the majority of the county and not the entire state. That prevents the most populated 6 from controlling the rest.
Can I possibly accomplish so much in only one term of office? If I cannot, I expect someone else will step up and continue where I leave off.
Has it occurred to anyone that our freedoms and rights no longer matter to the federal bureaucracy? We have good Americans being held without bail simply because they protested against the government agencies who are stealing their land and rights? Maybe because the major population centers are in metropolitan areas and they have no clue as to what is happened outside of their cocoon shelters of urban lives. Maybe because they purchase their meats and vegetables at grocery stores and supermarkets and have no idea where that food actually comes from. Or maybe because they don’t care as long as the store carries what they seek and don’t even think about how that meat and produce got there.
Well, being a big city guy, I did know where the producers were. They were in the farmlands of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. They were in the corn fields of Nebraska and the arid wastelands of the West. They were people who didn’t care about a suit and tie, when they were driving herds on horseback wearing jeans and chaps. Or when they were plowing, planting, and harvesting the bounties we all enjoy on our dining tables daily.
During the stand taken by protesters in defense of the Bundy Ranch in Bunkerville, media from all over the world covered the story. During the adverse possession stand at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Harney County, Oregon again the media covered it. In both incidents the protesters were portrayed as a bunch of gun-toting extremists when in neither case was that true. Carrying firearms is quite natural out here in the west and not a big deal outside of the big cities. Ranchers especially carry arms for personal safety reasons as there are quite a lot of dangerous predators lurking in the wild, and a young calf or lamb is a prime target. Cougar and coyote have been personally encountered. Fortunately I was at a safe distance and was not in any danger of becoming dinner. That is not always the case out on the open range.
Since they were held in prison without bail for over a year now, nothing at all in the media about it. After several were found not guilty in the Oregon trial including brothers Ammon and Ryan Bundy, there was very little in the media outside of local news. Ammon and Ryan were not released as they should have been, but were kept in jail and transferred to prison in Nevada for the trial scheduled for June of this year. And now they are being physically and mentally abused while awaiting that trial. But where is Fox News and InfoWars? Where is Breitbart News? Where is ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC? Where is the media now? Where is the outcry for the abuses of men who never were violent, never threatened anyone with violence, and are being held without bail and basic rights? Why isn’t the Attorney General and President getting involved and speaking about justice for these good men? Where is Rand Paul who has spoken out about criminal justice reform, but says nothing about the abuses toward those who are innocent until proven guilty?
And what about the assassination of Robert LaVoy Finicum who will never get his day in court because the government chose to murder him instead? Why is there no outrage about that?
Americans better start to wake up and stand up for freedom and rights because we are losing both.
