Republican Think Tanks - Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing & Evangelist Cleric Attire

By J.B. Williams

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. 

From Rockefellers Trilateral Commission to avowed communist Roger Baldwin’s ACLU, the Council on Foreign Relations to the Democratic Socialists of America and their congressional progressive and black caucuses, the DNC is run entirely by international leftists hell-bent upon destroying America’s Constitutional Republic.

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, Mother Jones, 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Yet, most conservatives across the country agree that the Republican Party no longer represents the true will of American conservatives, those who still revere our Founding documents, principles and values as the key to freedom and liberty via a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 Committee?

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.

The 9th 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.

The 10th states“The powers not delegated to the United 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.

Heritage 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. 

If the Republican Think Tanks are right, that states and individual rights are somehow “unconstitutional,” then what we have today is not a Constitutional Republic, but rather a despotic federal authority protected by an unelected and politically motivated nine-member oligarchy.
