Schumer, Architect of Democratic Message Wants Government to be God


Sunday’s Meet the Press was supposedly blessed with the appearance of Senator Chuck Schumer, a Democrat from New York.  An article reporting on Schumer’s appearance described him as being the ‘primary architect of the Democratic message.’

When I read this description of Schumer, I reflected on some of the things I’ve heard Schumer say on various occasions and it all fit together.

During all of the proceedings leading up to the passage of Obamacare, I was watching a news conference where Schumer said that it was up to the government to decide what our inalienable rights will be.

In that interview, Schumer was referring to the Declaration of Independence that says,

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

If you look up inalienable rights in a variety of dictionaries, you will discover that they are rights that cannot be interchanged with others, transferred to other or repudiated by anyone except the party who extended the inalienable rights in the first place.  In the Declaration of Independence, it clearly states that those inalienable rights were given to us by our Creator.

Anyone who claims that they will determine what our inalienable rights will be is placing themselves in the role of God, since the Declaration of Independence says that they were endowed upon us by our Creator.  So according to Senator Schumer, the government is to take the role of God in determining what our inalienable rights will be

If you have been following the Democratic Party for the past few years, it becomes clearly evident that they are playing the role of God in everything they do.  They’ve been taking away the rights of American citizens, especially Christian citizens, in virtually every area of life.  Under the Democratic theocracy, we are no longer free to speak out for our religious beliefs and we are no longer allowed the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as originally given to us by our creator.

And this all ties in with the long term plan of the Democratic Party to make itself God in establishing a Marxist government of the elite, for the elite and by elite.

NY Senator Gillibrand’s ‘Stock Crock’ Assailed

Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s bill to end insider trading by members of Congress is so full of loopholes that it would do almost nothing to stop lawmakers and their families from profiting on stock deals.

A bill first proposed by New York Democratic Rep. Louise Slaughter, the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act, languished for years without legislative action.

But then on Nov. 13, “60 Minutes” aired a report showing that members of Congress from both parties — including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — had evidently profited from stock trades made on the basis of insider knowledge, a practice that is essentially legal for members of Congress.

In the days that followed, 61 House members stepped forward to co-sponsor the STOCK Act, and Sen. Gillibrand — who was appointed to fill Hillary Clinton’s seat in New York after she accepted the secretary of state post — led a group of nine senators in introducing a version of the STOCK Act in the Senate, the Buffalo News reported.

Under the Gillibrand proposal, members and employees of Congress would be prohibited from buying or selling securities or commodity futures based on inside knowledge.

But in an article headlined “Gillibrand’s Stock Crock,” the New York Post cited experts who point out that the act does not specifically bar lawmakers and their employees from sharing information with their spouses and family members, meaning they could pass on inside information that those family members could use to make trades.

Alan Ziobrowski, a real estate professor at Georgia State University, criticized a provision of the bill giving legislators 90 days to report trades.

“Stock trades need to be reported in real time,” he told the Post.

“After 90 days, these reports will simply end up in the bowels of Congress where they will probably be forgotten.”

The Post article goes on to disclose that Gillibrand’s husband, Jonathan, made more than 250 stock transactions in 2008 — when the mortgage crisis was at its height and Gillibrand was a member of the U.S. House. Those included investments in home-building stocks — he used options that allowed him to bet that their prices would go down so he could turn a profit.
