  Barbara from Harlem’s Bio:
   I am Barbara from Harlem and my God, my Country, and my Conscience are my guides. 


I was a liberal by default. I asked no questions. I had no answers. I just pulled the lever to vote for Democrats as was expected of me. Most of my fellow Black Americans do not fully understand what the term “liberal” means, or who or what they are voting for. And, in turn they don’t realize how harmful those “liberal” policies are to our freedoms and liberties as Americans.

I was born into a culture that believes Black equals Democrat. A broken home, failed marriage, and a feeling of victimization fueled my need for inclusion, which the Democratic Party fulfilled. As an activist and member of the NAACP and Democratic Clubs in Harlem, the men I looked up to—the Rev. Jesse Jackson (whom I also campaigned for), Congressman Charlie Rangel, and Rev. Al Sharpton—reinforced the negative perceptions that shaped my world.

But just like false prophets, the false narrative that has been spoon-fed to us by Black leaders, the Black community, the media, and progressive politicians has enslaved Blacks in a victimhood mentality and entitlement mindset.

But my eyes were opened to reject victimhood and lack of accountability. My journey has proven to me that when you have clarity of conscience, love of God, and a deep-seated belief in America’s goodness, your life will be enriched and your focus will change to one of accountability.

I am Barbara from Harlem. I fought my way out. You can too.

Constitution Day. How Well Do You Know the Constitution?

Today marks the anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution when on September 17, 1787,  39 of the 42 delegates present approved of the U.S. Constitution, and the convention adjourned.  Sadly, most Americans have little or any knowledge of the U.S. Constitution.  We at Camp Constitution have made efforts to help educate Americans about the U.S. Constitution.  Since our inception, we have distributed over 20,000 pocket copies of the U.S. Constitution, conducted dozens of lectures, and classes on the U.S. Constitution, and given our 10 Question quiz to thousands of people.  We encourage readers to take our 10 question quiz:    http://campconstitution.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/Camp-Constitution-U-S-Constitution-Quiz.pdf 

 

Our YouTube Channel has a U.S. Constitution playlist.  It contains lectures, classes and interviews of our instructors and speaker over the years.  Please watch, share and subscribe to our Channel.

The Weekly Sam: Its Not About Race, Stupid, It’s About Ideology by Sam Blumenfeld

(Sam wrote this article before the election of Obama in 2008.)

Considering the fact that millions of white folks in thirty states voted for Barack Obama
instead of Hillary Clinton ought to be proof enough that the American people are no
longer negatively influenced by race when it comes to choosing political leadership.
This is true, regardless of what has come out of the mouth of Rev. Jeremiah Wright. He
represents the racist past, while Obama represents the non-racist future.
But what Republicans and conservatives don’t like about Obama is not his race but his
ideology. After all, if Thomas Sowell were running for President, conservatives would
back him to the hilt. The problem with Obama is that he represents the far left ideology
of the Democratic Party, otherwise known as Socialism, the philosophy of government
that advocates bureaucratic control over all aspects of life.

When Obama advocates “unity,” he surely must be aware of the great divide that
separates the two political parties. The Democratic Party is the party of the advanced
Nanny State. The Republican Party is theoretically still the party of limited government,
low taxes, individual freedom, less government regulation of the economy, and
traditional moral principles. Thus, there is no way that the great divide between the two major political parties can be cemented over by talk of “unity.” The existence of the two political parties with
opposing philosophies of government guarantee that we shall be living in an ideologically
divided society for the foreseeable future. Liberals will continue to control the education
of most American children, thus spreading the ideas of Socialism among younger
generations, and conservatives will assert traditional spiritual and moral values by
adherence to the teachings of the Bible and the original intent of the Framers of the U. S.
Constitution.

Homeschoolers, although small in numbers, will have a disproportionate influence on
conservative politics. The astonishing success of Patrick Henry College in getting its
graduates into key positions in Congress, the media, and the judiciary, bodes well for the
future of Christian political purpose

Recent elections have shown that the see-sawing between left and right indicate that
neither political party is going to be able to overwhelmingly impose its philosophy on the
American people. This is all to the good, because it means that no one President, who is
the leader of his party, can become a dictator in a nation as divided as we are. Not even
Bill Clinton could ignore the great divide, and much as she may try, Hillary will not be
able to deliver the kind of “unity” Obama prattles about.
If leftist Obama is elected, we shall see a conservative reaction that will stymie many of
his programs. But, if his victory also brings in full Democratic control of Congress, then
he may, like LBJ in 1965, be able to push through some of his ultra-liberal programs. But
in the next election, we would, no doubt, see a strong resurgence of conservatism.
Just as we have seen that there cannot be a permanent Republican majority in Congress
and the White House as Karl Rove would have liked to achieve, so it is unlikely that we
shall see a permanent Democratic majority controlling Congress. Regardless of what
happens in November 2008, our divided politics will provide a kind of equilibrium
between our warring factions. Our cultural civil war will continue but not become
physical.

Yet, each President is confronted with daunting challenges. All was peace and light for
George Bush until Osama bin Ladin gave us 9/11. We then found ourselves at war with
radical Islam. This was a new kind of war that had to be fought in a new kind of way.
Whether or not you believe that the invasion of Iraq was a good idea, we are now there
and whoever is President will have to deal with that problem. And whatever solution is
adopted, the American people will have to deal with its consequences.

The President of the United States is still considered the most powerful political figure in
the world and the leader of the free world. He projects America’s abiding ideals of
individual freedom, human rights, and benign government. He is also
Commander-in-Chief of the world’s largest and most powerful military force. And all of
that is supported by the largest, richest, and most dynamic economy on the globe.
We may already be in a serious recession. But that’s nothing new. Our economy
expands and contracts according to a whole battery of economic factors. We have a
consumer driven economy dependent on easy consumer credit. Only paper money
churned out by the Federal Reserve’s printing presses can sustain such an economy.
Inherent in such a system is the continued devaluation of the currency.
Who would have ever thought that one day the Canadian dollar would be worth more
than the American buck? These are just some of the things the next President will be
confronted with. We wish him or her good luck!.

Black Woman Schools White Black Life Matters Supporters

 

Bebe Diamond was on a tour of the Lexington Battle Green in Lexington, MA sponsored by Camp Constitution when she politely confronted a group of white Black Lives Matter supporters.  Bebe told these white ladies that the organization Black Lives Matter does not speak for the Black community.

The Weekly Sam: Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, and Israel

 

Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, and Israel
By Samuel Blumenfeld

What makes Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama think that peace is
possible between Israel and the Palestinians so long as Iran threatens to nuke Israel, is
rearming Hisbullah in Lebanon, and arming Hamas in Gaza, which is still determined to
destroy Israel?

What makes the Obama administration think that the Palestinians want peace when they
propose that Israel no longer maintain itself as a Jewish state and insist that it take in over
three million descendants of the 700,000 Arabs who once lived there? Forgotten are the
800,000 Jews expelled from Muslim countries after the 1948 war.
All the fuss being made by Biden and Clinton over the building of 1,600 new housing
units in Jerusalem is a case of misplaced indignation. Short of Israel committing suicide,
the Palestinians under Abbas are not about to assume the responsibilities of statehood
which would require it to behave like a legitimate sovereign nation. And that is why
they have rejected every offer the Israelis have made in the pursuit of peace.

The Palestinian government is the recipient of world charity which makes it unnecessary
for it to create anything of value. As the recipient of billions in free money, why bother
to work for a living? And as long as there is no peace agreement, they can continue to
launch suicide attacks against Israel at will.

Ever since the Oslo peace process began in 1993, Israel has had to make concession after
concession in the interest of peace. The Palestinians saw this as the successful result of
their intifada waged from 1987 to 1993. Many Israelis saw the Oslo process as the road
to a real peace that would bring untold prosperity to the region.
After President Clinton’s famous Camp David summit in the summer of 2000 between
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Yasir Arafat, Barak offered the Palestinians the
most generous peace terms any Israeli government could ever offer: 88 percent of the
West Bank and most of East Jerusalem. The response? The second intifada of
2001-2002 in which over 1,000 Israelis were killed in terrorist and suicide bomber
attacks.

In 2005, Israel unilaterally withdrew from Gaza, destroying the homes, farms, and
businesses of over 8,000 Israeli citizens. Did this disengagement bring peace? From the
date of withdrawal to the 2009 war, Gazan terrorists fired about 6,000 rockets and
mortars into Southern Israel. And even after the Gazan war, Hamas is still rearming
with the help of Iran, and Al Qaida has made inroads in the territory.
In September 2008, Prime Minister Olmert offered to withdraw from 94 percent of the
West Bank and create international Muslim control over Jerusalem’s holy sites. This
far-reaching offer was also rejected by the Palestinians.
Israel’s unceasing efforts to achieve peace in order to demonstrate to America that it truly
believes that peace is possible flies in the face of the intransigent realities on the ground.
The simple fact is that more and more Israelis are beginning to acknowledge that peace,
seemingly so near at hand, yet so elusive, is in the long run unachievable. Why?
Because the pre-conditions set by the Palestinians are simply impossible to meet.

Another fact is that despite the absence of peace, Israel has not only survived for 61
years, but has become a high-tech powerhouse, achieved a high standard of living, and
has managed to fare much better than most countries during the world financial crisis.
Yet, sixteen years of piecemeal concessions made under pressure from America and the
Europeans have convinced Israel haters that the Jewish state is quite vulnerable. Thus,
Israel’s yearning for peace and willingness to uproot its own people in Gaza and the
so-called settlements in Judea and Samaria, has encouraged its enemies to go for the
jugular.

And that is why what Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton hotly said in response to the notice
of the building in Jerusalem will provide ammunition to those who claim that it is Israel
that stands in the way of peace. Israel wants to please its American ally, but suicide is
not the most practical way to do it.

It should be noted that Israel now has a population of over 7 million inhabitants, of which
1.5 million are Muslim citizens of Israel, most of whom would object to becoming
citizens of a Palestinian state. Meanwhile, no Jews are permitted to be citizens of
Palestine. So much for a democratic, multicultural Palestinian state. There were even
Israelis in Gaza willing to live under a Palestinian government provided they were not
persecuted by that state.

Why doesn’t the American government insist that the projected Palestinian state permit
Jews to live in it? Unfortunately, the Palestinians would have to stop hating Jews, and
Barack Obama is not about to impose on the Palestinians their Allah-given imperative to
hate and kill Jews

The Weekly Sam: The New Barbarians Public Schoolers Without Conscience

Sam Blumenfeld was ahead of his time.  In his  March 1993, newsletter, Sam makes the case that public schools are turning our amoral brutes.  He would not be surprised at all at the mayhem that is going on all over the U. S. today.  Here is a link to that newsletter:  http://blumenfeld.campconstitution.net/1995/BEL%2010-03%20199503.pdf

The Weekly Sam: How “Progressive” Educators Planned to Socialize America

In his March 1987 newsletter, Sam Blumenfeld spelled out the plans that the enemies of America had for our nation.  The riots in the streets prove Sam to be correct.  This is why we must take our children out of the government schools.  http://blumenfeld.campconstitution.net/1987/BEL%2002-03%20198703.

Our Blumenfeld Archive is enjoying an increase in views and downloads. Please help share this precious and valuable resource:  http://blumenfeld.campconstitution.net

Behind the Riots:

Rev. Steve Craft gave a powerful presentation at Camp Constitution’s 12 annual family camp held from July 19-24 at the Singing Hills Christian Camp in Plainfield.  Rev. Craft gives an historical overview of the riots and who is behind them.  He discusses the book Color, Communism, and Common Sense written by Manning Johnson, a former black communist reprinted by Camp Constitution Press   http://campconstitution.net/product/color-communism-and-common-sense-by-manning-johnson/  and discusses the communist and racist roots of Black Lives Matter.
