Republican Think Tanks - Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing ... JB Williams
Think Tanks - Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing
Today’s Democratic Party is run by numerous left-wing think
tanks set up to infiltrate and hijack the party, moving it further and further
left, making it the greatest threat to American sovereignty and security today.
Through these groups, today’s Democratic Party has
progressively evolved into America’s
Communist Party, as explained in Marx’s
Communist Manifesto. Although many American democrats are completely
unaware, reality is inescapable at this stage of progression. The DNC is now
our nation’s most powerful anti-American political organization.
We cannot afford to overlook the propaganda machine of the
international left either, without whom, they could never convince Americans to
commit national suicide in the election booth. This machine includes academia,
the news agencies and the entertainment industry. When the oldest Communist
Publication in America,
becomes the primary source of information for all American news agencies, the
death of the free press has already happened.
But what about the Republican think tanks? Are they really
any less dangerous? What are they really promoting?
Far worse than any overt enemy, is a covert enemy operating
within… The one thing that is worse than the known enemy down the street is
finding out that your wife has been sleeping with that enemy, feeding them
information, while misdirecting and undermining your efforts to defend the
family against that enemy.
Operating as public
policy research centers, these organizations were developed and formed by
inside the DC beltway power-brokers, with the aim and intent of influencing
public policy at the national level. Today’s most influential Republican Think
Tanks are Heritage Foundation and evangelical
Christian David Barton’s Wall Builders.
Each of these organizations claims to be “conservative”
policy research centers, and each has been increasingly influential in
Republican Party policies for several years now.
Yet, most conservatives across the country agree that the
Republican Party no longer represents the true will of American conservatives,
those who still revere our Founding
documents, principles and values as the key to freedom and liberty via a Constitutional
Republic. How did this happen, with
“conservative policy research centers” like Heritage
Foundation and Wall Builders
advising inside the DC beltway Republicans and the Republican National
The enemy you know is much less dangerous than the enemy
masquerading as your friend. Inside the beltway gadflies, concerned only with
their own level of influence with the political rich and famous in DC, have
turned out to be our most dangerous enemies of all and they too, have a massive
propaganda machine in the Republican talking heads.
In a Constitutional Republic, all power is inherent in the
people, all governments derive their power from the people, and all
governmental powers are balanced between enumerated federal authority, states’
rights, local authority and individual rights, all defined by the U.S.
Constitution and each State Constitution, protected by the U.S. Bill of Rights.
A conservative organization will be focused entirely upon
conserving, protecting and preserving these fundamental foundational precepts,
upholding and defending the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and our Republican
form of government, against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
Is that what the
Republican Think Tanks are doing today?
The answer to this question can be found in these
organization’s position papers on topics like States Tenth Amendment Rights.
The trick is to frame the discussion around a red herring
label, like nullification, and then
cherry-pick quotes from Founders and court opinions (which have no
constitutional force of law) that destroy states’ and individual rights via
destroying the red herring.
Like all rights protected by the Bill of Rights, the Ninth
and Tenth Amendments are either enforceable, or they don’t exist at all. There
is no such thing as inalienable rights which we cannot enforce. If they are not
enforceable, they don’t exist.
states – “The enumeration in the Constitution,
of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained
by the people.” – This means that all authority not delegated to the
federal government via enumerated powers in the Constitution, remain under the
authority of the people.
states – “The powers not delegated to
States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved
to the States respectively, or to the people.” – This means that all
political powers not delegated to the federal government via the U.S.
Constitution, remain under the authority of the people and the states.
Every American conservative reads these powers as clear,
unconditional and absolute. But this is not the position of the Republican
Public Policy Centers today.
Foundation stands opposed to states and individual rights in their red
herring arguments against nullification,
using a special blend of false history and cherry-picked court opinions and
quotes to proclaim that the states and the people are entirely subservient to
federal authority under an unbridled “supremacy clause” which establishes a
despotic federal power, protected by a nine-member unelected and unaccountable
oligarchy, the Supreme Court.
Evangelical history revisionist David Barton and his Wall Builders
agree, the states and the people have no right to enforce states or individual
rights, other than in the voting booth. Both use red herring arguments, such as
“Democrat President Andrew Jackson wanted to shoot the nullifiers…” – so what, who
cares? Democrat President Bill Clinton wanted to shoot Monica Lewinsky for
hanging on to that stained dress too… Nixon wanted to shoot the people who
caught him in Watergate. Big deal…
If Barton and Heritage Foundation are right, that the states
and people have constitutional rights, but no way to enforce those rights, then
the states’ and the people have no rights at all.
Of course not… so why are these Republican think tanks promoting
unchecked federal supremacy, standing publicly opposed to states and individual
rights? The answer is no more complicated than the fact that their power is in Washington
DC, not fifty sovereign states, just like
the Republicans they advise in Washington DC.
Even new DC insiders like Americans for
Prosperity are working against individual and states’ rights, recently
scoring some of the worst Republicans in DC like Sen. John McCain and Marco
Rubio with an A or A+ rating, as reported by RNC
propaganda site Newsmax.
McCain has been the most far left Republican in congress for
years, along with Lindsey Graham, both of whom are up to their eyeballs in the Benghazi
gun-running and murder scandal. Rubio, who
has risen to the top stop for the 2016 presidential nod despite being ineligible
for the office, is the new
political messiah of illegal immigration and amnesty for millions of future
Other DC Republicrats like Coburn and Flake are fully engaged
in helping Democrats disarm Americans, along with well-known RNC leftists
Collins and McCain. No imagination is required to see these people working
against Americans Constitutional
Republic on a daily basis. DC
insiders are ALL against the U.S.
Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the people of the United
But now they have
reached State Governments too
Why are state-level Republicans like Michigan Speaker
of the House Jase Bolger, also hiding behind false history and anti-state interpretations
of constitutional right, essentially proclaiming that states’ and individual
rights are “unconstitutional” as long as the despots in Washington
DC say so.
How did the DC beltway think tanks reach the state
legislators? It was much easier than you think.
They formed another think tank called ALEC, which stands for American
Center. ALEC claims to be for
“smaller government, free markets and federalism.” In other words, it is e
legislative think tank aimed at influencing state level Republican legislators.
As the federal government becomes ever more despotic and
tyrannical towards the Constitution, Bill of Rights and the American people,
some state legislators have summoned the courage to confront federal assaults
by introducing a State
Balance of Powers Act, based entirely upon the text of the U.S.
Constitution and Bill of Rights. Following the lead of the national RNC think
tanks, other Republican state legislators are rushing to block the measure,
ensuring that their state and the people will remain enslaved by a false
premise of unchecked federal supremacy.
As Tennessee Constitutional
Attorney Hal Rounds states in a February 18th letter to
Tennessee legislators, “In reference to
the letter of the North American
Law Center disputing the Tennessee Office of Legal Services condemnation of
your “Balance of Powers” Act, it is downright tragic to see that the legal
services personnel available to the Tennessee Assembly are so deficient in
Constitutional understanding. When it
takes an outside, independent citizen’s agency to tell the members of our
Assembly about our Constitution, we have a serious problem.”
Well, Rounds is right, we are in very serious trouble here…
It’s one thing when the international left wants to destroy the Constitutional
Republic and all state and
individual rights. It’s a whole different problem when Republicans
want to help them accomplish that goal.
who is not affiliated with the North American Law Center (NALC) as of this writing -- hits
the nail right on the head with this statement…
the North American Law Center is exactly correct in its analysis of the place
of Constitutional supremacy – there is no supremacy when the law Congress makes
– or the courts invent – is contrary to, or exceeds the powers in, the
Constitution. The Balance of Powers Act
does address only federal laws made that violate the Constitution. Such laws are without any force, and must be
opposed. The Balance of Powers Act provides a prudent and cautious legal
process for evaluating whether a federal statute does fall outside the limited
powers of the federal government allowed by the Constitution.”
It’s not hard to figure out why all DC politicians want
unbridled federal power, but when state
Republicans start regurgitating the blatant lies of the DC power hungry in
order to help federal politicians knock off states and individual rights, we
must be nearing the brink of a second American revolution.
Federal legislators are hell-bent on federal supremacy and
global governance. The national Republican think tanks are hell-bent on
promoting national RNC power, at odds with both states and individual rights.
Even many state Republicans are hiding behind false information from the
national organizations in an effort to escape personal responsibility for
protecting the people’s rights.
Other than YOU, nobody is looking out for you. No politician
or Republican talking head is going to do anything to save the Constitutional
Republic. Only YOU can save the Constitutional
But you cannot save the Constitutional
Republic at the national level
today. Both Democrats and Republicans are focused only upon retaining their own
political power and wealth at any cost, including the price of losing the Constitutional
Republic and freedom and liberty
You can only save the Republic one state at a time. Only by
making each state self-sufficient and self-reliant, can the American people
save this nation at this late date.
To do that, you will have to overcome the ignorance and
cowardice of state legislators who either don’t know constitutional truth, or
seek to hide behind leftist legal opinions aimed at squashing any form of
constitutional checks and balances from the states or their people.
The only way you can save your state is to reestablish and
reassert states and individual rights and a proper constitutional balance of
State Balance of Powers Act is very carefully crafted for this sole
Only the people themselves can overcome these groups and
protect themselves by protecting their states. While the Obama administration
is busy arming known terrorists all over the globe and trying to disarm the
American people against their Second Amendment rights, idiots like Michigan
Speaker Bolger are busy regurgitating false attacks on states and
It’s not complicated. We are up against the age old greed
and lust for power here. Politicians almost never seek to empower of protect
the people. Almost all of them seek personal power and wealth and with
increasing regularity, these greed driven parasites would stop at nothing to
acquire their wealth and power.
The people are not just up against greedy progressive
democrats, they are up against progressive republicans, their think tanks and
their RNC minions in the press, all of them parasites sucking the life out of
freedom and liberty. Only the people can save the Republic. They will have to
do it one state at a time and they will have to run over cowardly politicians
to do it.
