President Trump Gets out of Paris Accord

Professor Willie Soon, who will be an instructor at this year’s Camp Constitution’s family camp shared with us a memo he received from the White House Press Office:

Topline: The Paris Accord is a BAD deal for Americans, and the President’s action today is keeping his campaign promise to put American workers first. The Accord was negotiated poorly by the Obama Administration and signed out of desperation. It frontloads costs on the American people to the detriment of our economy and job growth while extracting meaningless commitments from the world’s top global emitters, like China. The U.S. is already leading the world in energy production and doesn’t need a bad deal that will harm American workers.
UNDERMINES U.S. Competitiveness and Jobs
 According to a study by NERA Consulting, meeting the Obama Administration’s requirements in the Paris Accord would cost the U.S. economy nearly $3 trillion over the next several decades.
 By 2040, our economy would lose 6.5 million industrial sector jobs – including 3.1 million manufacturing sector jobs
o It would effectively decapitate our coal industry, which now supplies about one-third of our electric power
The deal was negotiated BADLY, and extracts meaningless commitments from the world’s top polluters
 The Obama-negotiated Accord imposes unrealistic targets on the U.S. for reducing our carbon emissions, while giving countries like China a free pass for years to come.
o Under the Accord, China will actually increase emissions until 2030
The U.S. is ALREADY a Clean Energy and Oil & Gas Energy Leader; we can reduce our emissions and continue to produce American energy without the Paris Accord
 America has already reduced its carbon-dioxide emissions dramatically.
o Since 2006, CO2 emissions have declined by 12 percent, and are expected to continue to decline.
o According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), the U.S. is the leader in oil & gas production.
The agreement funds a UN Climate Slush Fund underwritten by American taxpayers
 President Obama committed $3 billion to the Green Climate Fund – which is about 30 percent of the initial funding – without authorization from Congress
 With $20 trillion in debt, the U.S. taxpayers should not be paying to subsidize other countries’ energy needs.
The deal also accomplishes LITTLE for the climate
 According to researchers at MIT, if all member nations met their obligations, the impact on the climate would be negligible. The impacts have been estimated to be likely to reduce global temperature rise by less than .2 degrees Celsius in 2100.

The Weekly Sam: The Islamization of Eurupe

This article from the Sam Blumenfeld Archives was written over 10 years ago:


Oriana Fallaci, the intrepid Italian journalist, known for her no-holds-barred interviews of world leaders and celebrities, has written a book which the Moslems in Europe have tried to ban. Titled The Rage and the Pride, it was written as a response to the attack on New York and Washington on September 11,2001, in which 3,000 human beings perished in the World Trade Center Towers, in four hijacked airliners, and in the Pentagon, killed by Islamic fundamentalists. The book is a powerful alarm to wake up the West to the Reverse Crusade launched by this Islamic Pearl Harbor. Fallaci is the only writer I know of who has connected what happened on 9/ll with what has been going on in Europe for the last fifteen years: a massive invasion by Moslem immigrants. She characterizes this invasion as the Reverse Crusade, by which the Moslems hope to dominate Christian Europe from which they were expelled in the 15th century. She writes: People are afraid to speak against the Islamic world. Afraid to offend, and to be punished for offending, the sons of Allah. You can insult the Christians, the Buddhists, the Hindus, the Jews. You can slander the Catholics, you can spit on the Madonna and Jesus Christ. But, woe betide the citizen who pronounces a word against the Islamic religion.

What particularly disturbs Fallaci is the extent to which Italy has been impacted by the Moslem invasion. And the reason why Italy permits these immigrants to stay is because Italians have the lowest birthrate in Europe, and they don’t want the menial jobs. But the hope has always been that immigrants would be absorbed into Italian culture, so that the generation born in Italy would adopt Italian or Western ways and attitudes. But Fallaci writes: Because our cultural identity has been well defmed for thousands of years we cannot bear a migratory wave of people who have nothing to do with us … who are not ready to become like us, to be absorbed by us …. Who, on the contrary, aim to absorb us. To change our principles, our values, our identity, our way of life. And who in the meantime molest us with their retrograde ignorance, their retrograde bigotry, their retrograde religion. I am saying that in our culture there is no room for the muezzins, for the minarets, for the phony abstemious, for the humiliating chador, for the degrading burkah. Fallaci is infuriated by the way Islamic fundamentalists treat women. She quotes the two testaments that Muhammed Atlah, the leader of the 9/11 attack, left for his parents: “At my funeral I do not want impure things. Meaning, animals and women …. Not even around my grave do I want impure beings. Especially the most impure: pregnant women.” But of course, there was no funeral for Attah who was burnt to ashes with the rest of his fellow hijackers and the passengers in the plane. It requires a diabolical mind to believe that this is something God called for. There is nothing in Judaism or Christianity that calls for such diabolical behavior. And there is nothing in Biblical religion that calls for the total degradation of women. The burkah is probably the most degrading form of dress ever conceived by any culture for women. It puts them in a mo bile prison, reducing them to a form of chattel, a movable piece of personal property. They have no rights, no freedoms, and are forced to remain ignorant, illiterate, and enslaved by their husbands.

In Afghanistan, women have been given the right not to wear the burkah, which was required under the Taliban. Yet, there are many women in Afghanistan who still wear the burkah because of custom and the fear of their husbands. What is amazing is how passively the Europeans have allowed this invasion to take place. It’s as if the Islamization of Europe were taking place in a cultural vacuum. But it is not so much a cultural vacuum as it is a spiritual one. Western Europe has long fallen away from its Christian roots mainly through the prevalence of its atheist leftists in positions of power in politics and academe. Christianity has been replaced by communism and socialism, the two utopian philosophies of the 20<1> century for which millions of human beings were sacrificed. And so, why resist the Islamic invasion which is being aided and abetted by the Left. But the rise of Le Pen in France, and so-called right-wingers elsewhere in Europe, are the rumblings of a growing opposition to Islamization. Brigitte Bardot, the famous French mm star, has written her own passionate book, A Scream in the Silence, in which she proclaims: “I am against the Islamization of France …. For centuries our forefathers, the ancients, our grandfathers, our fathers gave their lives to chase all successive invaders from France.” But when will the French fight back? There are now six million Muslims in France who want the right to send their daughters to secular public schools wearing the chador. They want to impose their culture on France, and they are a power to be reckoned with. It was Charles de Gaulle who betrayed the Christian West, in 1962, when he surrendered French Algeria to the Arabs, forcing the flight of over a million Europeans and Jews from North Africa. It was the presence of France in North Africa that kept the Arabs in check and permitted the creation of a productive civilization in that part of the world. But de Gaulle’s retreat from North Africa made the Reverse Crusade inevitable. France had invaded Aljgeria in 1830 to put a stop to Moslem depredations along the Mediterranean coast. The French stayed, and Europeans settled there, building farms, vineyards, factories, and a European way of life. Algeria became a prosperous French colony in which the Arabs enjoyed a high degree of safety and freedom. Today, with the French gone, Islamic radicals are free to slit the throats of children sleeping in their beds. And so, six million Algerians have gone to France, with a large contingent of anti Semitic radicals among them. And they have brought Islam with them. With the Islamization of Europe has come a resurgence of anti-Semitism sparked by the hatred of Israel. The Arab-European League, a militant Arab nationalist party, is one of the Islamic groups responsible for inciting hatred of Jews. In pro-Palestinian marches in Antwerp, Belgium, police warned Jews not to go to their temples because their safety could not be guaranteed. Some European Jews are emigrating to Israel. But Israel is not exactly a safe haven.

The Jerusalem Report of June 2, 2003 reported: Ran Baron, 23, Yanai Weiss, 46, and French immigrant Dominique Caroline Hass, 29, were killed and about 60 wounded when a suicide bomber identified as AssifHanif, 21, of Britain blew himself up outside Mike’s Place, a beachfront pub in Tel Aviv on April 30. An accomplice of Hanifs, Omar Sharif, 27, also of Britain, escaped after his suicide bomb failed to detonate. Over 700 Israelis have been killed by suicide bombers since the beginning of this latest Intifada. And it is interesting that suicide bombers are now being recruited among European Moslems in this world-wide religious war. Fallaci writes: All the so-called Revolutions of Islam began in the mosques. Not in the Universities, as the [liberals 1 want us to believe. Behind every Islamic terrorist there is an Imam, and Khomeini was an Imam …. And I declare that many Imams (too many) are spiritual guides to terrorism. What do the Imams in the mosques of America preach? Is a non-Moslem American permitted to enter a mosque and [md out? Over the years I have attended Jewish synagogues, Protestant churches, Catholic churches, Mormon churches, and never did I hear a sermon that preached hatred of someone or anyone. But Islam is a religion of hatred that has no place in a tolerant Christian civilization. We wonder if some young American Moslems are being prepared to become the suicide bombers of the future. We hope the Homeland Security Department knows the answer. But all they presently see in their American liberators is disorganization and confusion. Nobody knows who’s in charge, not even American soldiers know. Thus, our troops are confronted daily by angry mobs that want jobs, or food, or relief; none of which our troops can provide. WIllIe the United States wants Iraq to be run by the Iraqis, the transition from Saddam’s murderous regime to a benign democracy may take much longer than we think. In the interim, the Iraqis need American authority to bring them out of chaos. They need a symbolic figure of authority who represents American goals and can create the framework of a reconstructed democratic Iraq. But where is that authority? Where is that top man who can hold press conferences and speak on Iraqi television to assure the Iraqis of what our intentions are? Meanwhile, we have a glaring vacancy at the top, indicating chaos and disorganization among the liberators.

The Weekly Sam: The Victims of Dick and Jane

Sam Blumenfeld figured out that the Look-Sat Method of reading was crippling American children.  One of the main reading books used to do that was the “Dick and Jane Reader.”  Sam would point how ridiculous the reader was and demonstrated how it promoted illiteracy.  In 2003, Sam published “The Victims of Dick and Jane.”  Here is a link to the book:

The Weekly Sam: Before Common Core There Was Outcome Based Education

Sam Blumenfeld was one of the first to expose the deliberate dumbing down of America.  Sam named names and organization behind this crime.  Here is an interview Sam did back  in 1993 in the home of David Drye while he was on a speaking tour in North Carolina

to expose the fraud called Outcome Based Education:




The Battle of Lexington Reenactment 2017

For the past 18 years, I have attended  the reenactment of the Battle of Lexington that takes place on the Lexington, MA  Green on Patriots Day.  This year it fell on Monday April 17.  Over the years, I have brought family  members,  children’s friends, Camp Constitution families, and others to witness the reenactment of this important historical event.  We get up at 3:30 AM, and make the 25 minute drive to Lexington.  We make a  stop off at Peat’s to buy a cup hot chocolate,  and off to  find a good spot to view the reenactment.  After the reenactment, the Lexington Minutemen march to the Old Burying Ground where many of the Lexington Militiamen are buried to fire a volley honoring their sacrifices.  We then make out way to Wilson’s Diner in Waltham for an early breakfast, and maybe, a trip to nearby Concord to witness their reenactment and parade.  It never gets old.  My son Nathaniel videotaped this year’s reenactment and we posted it to our Youtube Channel:


The Weekly Sam: Eugenics and the Making of a Black Underclass

Sam Blumenfeld wrote a monthly newsletter from 1986 to 1999 which we have archived.  In my opinion, one of the most important newsletter was the June 1987 entitled “Eugenics and the Making of a Black Underclass.  http://blumenfeld.campconstitution.net/1987/BEL%2002-06%20198706.pdf

Sam demonstrates the racist roots of the Left and the racist roots of the IQ test.  Please download the newsletter and share it widely

The Weekly Sam: Sam Blumenfeld and Rudolf Flesch, author of “Why Johnny Can’t Read.”

Sam Blumenfeld dedicated his life to teaching people of all ages how to be good readers via intensive phonics.  While he was an editor for Grosset and Dunlop in the early 1960s,  he was asked be a friend, Watson Washburn, a conservative New York attorney, if he would join his reading foundation.  Sam was initially perplexed since he didn’t know that there was a reading problem.  He thought that practically everyone knew how to read.  Mr. Washburn suggested that he read “Why Johnny Can’t Read” by Rudolf  Flesch.    Sam befriended  the author of the book, Rudolf Flesch, and we have archives some of their correspondence.  It is interesting to note that Mr. Flesch called himself a “Viennese Socialist.”   A link to their corrresponsdence:  http://blumenfeld.campconstitution.net/Other/Rudolf%20Flesh%20-%20American%20Literacy.pdf

The Weekly Sam: How the Communists Created the Neo-Nazi Movement in the United States

Back in the early 1960s, Sam Blumenfeld worked as an editor for “American Opinion” magazine and Western Island Publications.  He was asked by Robert Welch to write a book about how the Communists created the Neo-Nazi movement in the United States. Mr. Welch did not like the manuscript, and it was never published.  Sam handed  me the original manuscript about six years ago, and gave Camp Constitution  the permission to publish it.  After Sam’s death, we found several incomplete manuscripts concerning George Lincoln Rockwell and the American Nazi Party.  Sam event had a collection of the group’s newsletters.  Camp Constitution Press has not, as of yet. published the book, but we make the manuscript available on the Sam Blumenfeld Archives.  http://blumenfeld.campconstitution.net/Manuscripts/How%20the%20Left%20created%20the
