| Thomas Jefferson and the Separation of Church and StateSupreme Court Rulings that altered the First Amendment.
Today, many Americans think that the First Amendment says “Separation of Church and State.” The Courts and the media will often refer to a ruling as being in violation of the “Separation of Church and State.” A recent national poll showed that 69% of Americans believe that the First Amendment says “Separation of Church and State.” You may be surprised to learn that these words do not appear in the First Amendment or anywhere else in the Constitution!1 Here is what the First Amendment actually does say.
The First Amendment:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
As you can see the First Amendment does not contain the words “Separation of Church and State”. The First Amendment gives citizens the Freedom to Worship God without Government interference. Assures that the Government will not establish a State Religion. That people are free to speak their minds without the government arresting them. Granting citizens to publish news that may be critical of the government without fear of arrest or fines, and finely the right of citizens to peacefully gather together or march in rallies or parades.
Separation of Church and State
In 1958, W. Cleon Skousen published a book exposing the history and goals of Communism. In his book titled The Naked Communist, he laid out the 45 goals of the Communist Party USA wanted to achieve in order to destroy American Society and its Constitutional form of Government. Amazingly in the 50 years since publishing, these goals to overthrow America have nearly all been achieved! We are seeing today at an ever faster rate the transformation of America from a Free Republic into a Socialist/ Communist Society. Hope and Change!
Here are some of the 45 goals of the Communist Party U.S.A. from 1958.
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If the U.N. charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one world government with its own independent armed forces.
15. Capture one or both political parties in the United States. (In David Horowitz’s book The Shadow Party, he shows how the Democratic Party is now under the control of what he calls the Shadow Party of Socialist-Communist influences.)
17. Get Control of the Schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the Party line in textbooks.
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. Eliminate all good sculptures from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.
23. Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down culture standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and TV.
26. Present homo-sexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.” (A.C.L.U. lawyers accomplished this goal in a very short 4 years from publication of the book The Naked Communist.)
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a world-wide basis. (In 2012, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsberg and A.C.L.U. member said exactly this while visiting Cairo, Egypt.)
30. Discredit the American founding fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of “the big picture.” Give more emphases to Russian history since the Communist took over.
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture, education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business. (Then move the jobs overseas, to stifle the American economy. Import goods from other countries, to create an imbalance of trade.)
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influences of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of the parents.
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use “united force” to solve economic, political or social problems. (Occupy Wall Street is being organized by the Communist Party.)
45. Repeal the Connally Reservation so the U.S. cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike.
So what is Communism?
Communism is a system where by a Totalitarian Government owns and controls everything!
People who live in a Communist controlled country do not own anything. The government owns all property and businesses; therefore, all the people are employees of the government. The government owns all the land and buildings. The government tells the people where they can live in government run housing, and supplies the food to the people. There is no freedom to run your own business, or own your own home or your own car. These items are given or rationed out as the State sees fit. The Central Planners of the government oversee and control every aspect of life.
In theory the people in a Commune share everything equally. In practice, those in power have the ultimate control of everything and live lavish lives. The the rest of the people in the commune, do the work, but just get by. Under Capitalism there are also the very rich, but if it is free Capitalism, everyone has an equal chance to move ahead. Under Communism you are held back because everyone must be equal, except of course the Party Leaders. Under Communism there is no incentive to work hard to better yourselves, because your extra efforts will be taken away from you and given to someone else.
One Political Party, no choice.
In a Communist country there is only one political party, the Communist Party. Elections are held to select the party member of your choice, who will always be a Communist.
The government also controls the police and the military which enforce the Communist Ideology on the people. Step out of line by complaining and you can fine yourself in trouble with the government. In the old Soviet Union this often meant being sent to a Gulag in Siberia, where many died from simple exposure, or the firing squad.
The State Religion is Atheism.
Communism scorns the idea of a creator God. The religion of Communism is atheism. Under Communism, Man is in control of everything. Under the American Declaration of Independence, Man gets his freedoms from God. Under Communism there is no Freedom. American’s get their freedoms from the ultimate authority of God.
Communism, a history of Death.
Under Communist control in Russia an estimated 20 million people were killed in peace time. In Communist China 70 million peasants where systematically eliminated. In Cambodia, Pol Pot murdered 2 million of his countrymen. In Vietnam the Communist killed another million citizens. Nazism is another form of socialism. The German Nazi’s created the death camps killing another 25 million people, mostly Jews. In total an estimated 125 million people have perished under Communism and the Socialist Nazi party, not counting the wars they created. All of this blood letting by people who rejected God. In all, more people have been exterminated under Socialism and Communism than all the wars of history combined!
An F.B.I. agent infiltrated the Weather Underground in the 1960’s. In talking with the leadership he asked them what they would do, once they gain power. They were very matter of fact in stating, we would need to set up re-education camps in the Southwestern States. Those who resisted change would be sent to the camps. Of those that would change their thinking and accept Communism could be returned to society in several years. But we estimate maybe 20 to 25 million Americans would need to be eliminated because they would refuse to accept Communism. These same 1960’s terrorist radicals are still around, but now many of them are in Universities and their students are in government positions. (See below)
People Flee from Communism
History shows that people will risk their very lives to flee from a Communist Countries to go to a country where there is Freedom. A land where you have the right to own property, and own and run your own business. To be able to travel where you want to go, and work at the job of your choice, and to live where you want to live. Freedom means you have a choice. Social Communism means you have NO choice. In short, under Communism you are a slave to the leaders of the State. (See some personal stories at the bottom of the page.)
Obama’s Circle of Communist Friends and Leftest Appointees
Barack Hussein Obama, has been influenced by a number of Communist mentors from his earliest years. As a young man in the 70’s while living in Hawaii, he looked up to Frank Marshall Davis as a father figure. Davis was a member of the Soviet controlled Communist Party U.S.A. Davis was also very Anti-Christian, writing in one poem, “Christ is a Dixie Nigger.” Obama got many of his early political ideas from this man. Obama’s first years of schooling were in the Muslim country of Indonesia.
In California Obama studied Saul Alinsky’s book Rules for Radicals, under Gregory Galluzzo. Saul Alinsky was a Communist who learned from Chicago gangster Al Capone how to use violence to gain power. He put these ideas in his book Rules for Radicals. Inside the cover, Alinsky dedicated his book to the first revolutionary who rebelled against God, namely Lucifer. Later Barack Obama taught a college class on Rules for Radicals which explains methods by which Communist can gain power. So Barack Obama was a student, and then a teacher of Communist tactics.
John L. McKnight taught Obama about community organizing. He is a former ACLU director, and is on the board of the National People’s Action (another leftist group) He teaches at Northwestern University and wrote a letter of recommendation to Harvard for Obama.
While at the Harvard Law school Obama became involved in racially charged politics. He supported professor Derrick Bell who is a racist, and pushed for diversity on campus.
Obama attended Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago for 20 years. Rev. Wright is a Black Marxist who teaches “Social Justice”, “economic parity”, and “wealth re-distribution.” (Communist Goal 27) He has been Obama’s personal spiritual adviser for many years. Jeremiah Wright has links with Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam, a hate America group. From the pulpit of his church, Wright said, “G– damn the United States of America.” Yet Obama claims he doesn’t know any, Wright’s radical anti-American rantings.
Obama started his Chicago Political Career in the living room of 60’s radical leader Bill and Bernardine Ayers. Bill Ayers co-founded the violent radical left organization the Weather Underground. This group conducted a series of terrorist bombings of public building and the killing of several policemen. Both Ayers have criminal records. Bill Ayers now teaches at the University of Chicago, thus fulfilling Communist Agenda item 17. Obama claims he was unaware of Ayer’s past!
Carl Davidson is a Maoist who organized for Obama’s 2002 anti-war speech, and is the webmaster for the official Obama web site, Progressives for Obama.
Patrick Gaspard heads Obama’s White House Office of Political Affairs. Gaspard is a Socialist/ Communist.
Van Jones is a Communist and “Rowdy Black Nationalist” who Obama appointed to be his “Green Czar.” Jones founded the radical revolutionary organization STORM working with known Communist to change juvenile offender laws in California. Once Glenn Beck pointed out Jones Communist affiliations, the White House quickly and quietly released him.
Rashid Khalidi is a spokesman for the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO). During the 90’s the Obama’s were regular dinner guest at his Chicago home.
Khalid Al-Mansour is a mystery man who mentored Black Panther leaders Huey Newton and Bobby Seale in the early 60’s. This man has ties with Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, one of the wealthiest men in the world and some wonder if some of Obama’s campaign money came through him.
Mike Klonsky is an unabashed Communist. Obama has funded him almost $2 million to broadcast his “Social Justice” ideas on the official Obama campaign website.
Joel Rogers is founder of the Socialist New Party. He is a sociology and law professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Glenn Beck has called him “the man behind Obama.”
Kevin Jennings was appointed as the “Safe School Czar” by Obama. Mr. Jennings wrote the forward to the 1998 book, “Queering Elementary Education”, a book on how to teach young grade school children about homosexuality. (Communist Goal 26.) Since his appointment, many pro-homosexual books filled with child sex pornography are now being promoted and circulated in the Public School System, such as Rainbow Boys for grades 7-12.
Jeff Jones co-authored Obama’s Stimulus Bill. Jones was a national officer of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), and a founding member of the Weatherman, and leader of the Weather Underground. (Both leftist terrorist groups.) This man, as Bill Ayers, has a criminal record. Jones is part of the Apollo Group which has direct input to White House planning.
Mark Lloyd has been a longtime left-wing activist. Obama appointed him as the “diversity czar” to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that regulates broadcast radio and television and is beginning to regulate the Internet. His main job at the FCC is to replace white conservative males with minorities, homosexuals and women. (A pro-job discrimination policy.) Lloyd another Alinsky disciple calls for an all-out “confrontational movement” against private media. He stated in his Prologue, “… my focus is not on freedom of speech or the press.” Or to put it another way, screw the First Amendment’s Freedom of the Press.
Cass Sunstein is Obama’s “regulatory czar.” He is for animal rights and thinks that animals should have the right to sue humans. He wants to abolish the Second Amendment doing away with the right to own a gun. He wants to do away with traditional marriage, making it legal for gay marriages across the land. He believes the State has the rights to harvest human body organs as needed for science and the sick. The individual does not have the rights to your own body parts!! He thinks the government (your tax dollars) should be used for abortions. (a pro-baby killer policy) He wants to limit free speech especially on the Internet, and control and regulation by the government of Radio and TV. (Anti-First Amendment-Communist Goal to belittle the Constitution)
John Holdren was appointed as the “science czar” by Obama in December 2008. Holdren has been concerned for a long time about over-population, and global warming. He therefore promotes ways to control population growth, and reduce emissions of green house gases. His green house policies will necessary drive up energy cost.
Eric Holderwas appointed as U.S. Attorney General by President Obama. Eric Holder is for limiting or banning gun ownership, but at the same time he was implicated in the Fast and Furious scandal, in which automatic rifles where given to Mexican Drug Gangs. Records show that he knew about Fast and Furious a year before the Congressional Hearing about the case, in which he denied knowing about it. ( It would appear, he appears to be against citizens owning guns but is for criminals owning guns.) Eric Holder is against Photo Voter I.D. cards which would limit voter fraud, and supports ACORN a group which has been involved in voter fraud. Holder claims Voter ID card will discriminate against Blacks. On election day New Black Panther members where at voting precincts intimidating voters, but Eric Holder would not investigate or prosecute the incident. Holder also claims there is no evidence that voter fraud is happening; but watch this video from Ft. Myers, FL.
George Soros is a multi-Billionaire who has been responsible for the destruction of 4 country governments. He now has his gun sights on the United States of America. He has control and much influence of the media and political system in the U.S.A. He has created a large network of propaganda outlets to spew out lies to the American public, thus deceiving them and leaving them totally mislead. (Communist Goals 20 & 21.) He has great influence at the White House. He is considered the Puppet Master behind much of the Democratic party. (See the book, The Shadow Party. Communist Goal 15.) He sees the U.S. as the last impediment to a One World Government. (Communist Goal 45.)
The American Civil Liberty Union commonly know as the ACLU, was created by an agnostic socialist, Roger Baldwin in 1920. In his thirtieth-anniversary Harvard University class book he wrote, “I am for Socialism, disarmament, and ultimately the abolishing of the state itself as an instrument of violence and compulsion. I seek social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class, and sole control by those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal.”
During the 1920’s and 30′ the ACLU grew close ties with the Communist in the Soviet Union, with ACLU board member Robert W. Dunn making two trips to the Soviet Union. According to Earl Browder, general secretary of the American Communist Party, the ACLU served as a “transmission belt” for the party. The ACLU acts as the legal arm of the Communist Party.
In 1925, one of their first legal cases they attempted to force the teaching of Darwin’s theory of Evolution into the American classrooms, because it eliminates the need for a creator God. While they were unsuccessful in their first attempt, they persisted with more law suites. Today it is illegal to teach anything but Evolution in American Classrooms. Karl Marx became a big fan of Evolution, because it made God unecessary for the creation of life: materialism and naturalism could create life through Evolution. He saw it as science proving there is no God, which is part of the Communist Party line. Getting the Communist Party line into American textbooks was Objective 17.
The ACLU has had countless law suits to get prayer and Bible reading removed from public schools. (See Communist goal 28 above.) In several land-mark, U.S. Supreme Court decision they were successful in getting Prayer, Bible Reading and the Ten Commandments removed from public schools. They have sued school boards and cities across the country in an effort to remove all traces of God from American society. They routinely demand removal of the Ten Commandments in court houses and in public parks. Crosses at War Memorials they claim is in violation of the “Separation of Church and State” principle, which only exist in the old Soviet Union Constitution but not the United States Constitution. In recent years they attack Christmas displays by hauling local officials to court to sue them. Many cities fearing bankruptcy simply cave in to save court fees and possible fines. The late DR. D. James Kennedy called the ACLU, the Anti Christian Legal Union. (To learn more See book, The ACLU vs America, by Alan Sears.)

Personal Experiences with Communism
I have personally talked with 2 different couples who lived under Communism and one man who lives in a Socialist European country. He asked how much I pay in taxes. At the time I said around 25%. He said, “that is nothing, I pay 70% to 75% in taxes.” What do you get for that, I asked. “Cradle to grave health care.” Then he added, “you don’t know how lucky you have it in America.”
A couple who lived in Communist Lithuania, simply wanted to move from one apartment to another across town for a shorter commute to work each day. It took ten years of Red Tap to get permission from the government to simply move into a different apartment! Getting a car took them 15 years. They left after the fall of the Soviet Empire.
Another couple living upstairs from their business were forced to move out when Castro’s government took over their business and their home. What they got was not so nice as what they had before. They eventually fled Cuba.
