FDR’s ‘New Deal’ Social Security Act Just That

Rev. Austin Miles

February 12, 2018

Have you noticed that Social Security is now identified as an ‘entitlement’ like welfare, food stamps, housing, medical and education?

That is exactly how the government and their phony newspapers describe this today to the public. This is a typical government and newspaper lie.

How can this be like a welfare “entitlement” when all S.S. recipients paid into special government savings account all their working lives. so that they would receive an income when they retire?

What is more, the citizens had no choice in joining this government program. On May 6, 1933, it was made clear by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) that funds would be automatically taken from our paychecks for our futures…why, after all, we would get it all back with interest when we retired, saith they.

What is more, our first progressive president stated, that the Social Security card and number would not be used for identification. Get that? Got it.

That statement was printed clearly on the photo of Elvis Presley’s S.S. Card as was printed on all SS cards during those years.

So we were all told that the social security card and ID number would NOT be used for identification. Another lie. They were thinking well ahead. Fortunately, Donald Trump was elected as President of the U.S. before this plan could go full circle.

The post-plot was to construct a ‘chip’ that would be implanted in Americans so the government can keep track of all of us. This means our transactions, medical treatments, plus Big Brother will know at all times where we are and where our kids go to school.

The FDR years inched us very subtlety into progressiveness; from there to socialism, to leftism and now…Communism. So we fell for the ‘New Deal’ which was actually a Raw Deal. This was and is an example of gentle persuasion, even though today there is nothing gentle or subtle about it. Thank God, President Trump is now in charge and will push back the Communist invasion.

Let’s take another look at the Social Security Card and number, which was intended to be the forerunner of creating the welfare society, totally dependent upon the government, which has happened already, advancing the Communist goal.

Now take a close look at the info below which shows the history of the March of The Reds.

A HISTORY LESSON ON YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY CARD.

Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn’t know this. It’s easy to check out if you don’t believe it. Be sure and show it to your family and friends. They need a little history lesson on what’s what and it doesn’t matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts.

Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated that the number and card were not to be used for identification purposes.

Since nearly everyone in the United states now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION message on the cards were removed.

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. His promises with updates are shown:

1.) That participation in the Program would be completely voluntary (no longer voluntary).

2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual incomes into the program. (Now 7.65% on the first $90,000, and 15% on the first $90,000 if you’re self-employed.)

3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year. (No longer tax deductible).

4.) That the money the participants put into the independent ‘Trust Fund’ rather than into the general operating fund, and therefore would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, and no other government program (Under Johnson the money was moved to the General Fund and Spent.

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income (Under Clinton & Gore up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed).

Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month–and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal Government to ‘put away’–you may be interested in the following:

  • Q. Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent “Trust Fund” and put it into the general fund so that Congress could spend it?
  • A. It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically controlled House and Senate.
  • Q. Which political party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?
  • A. The Democratic Party.
  • Q. Which political party started taxing Social Security annuities?
  • A. The Democratic Party with Al Gore casting the ‘tie-breaking’ deciding vote as President of the Senate while he was Vice President of the U.S.
  • Q, Which political party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?
  • A. Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party. Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments!  The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it.

The Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!

And the worst part about it is uniformed citizens believe it! If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will involve. Maybe not though. Some Democrats are awfully sure of what isn’t so–but it’s worth a try.

ARE THE DEMOCRATS FIGHTING A CIVIL WAR?

That is the provocative hypothesis put forward by Danial Greenfield at Sultan Knish. On its face, it sounds hyperbolic, but Greenfield makes a rather sober case. You should read it all, but this will give you some of the flavor:

How do civil wars happen?

Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge.

That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.

Millennial Conservative Candace Owens Ignites Snowflake Meltdown Nationwide

Candace Owens – a black conservative – takes a page from President Donald Trump’s playbook when encountering unhinged liberals: she is fearless.

Her career, at the tender age of 28, has accelerated to the point of making the Nancy Pelosi’s and Chuck Schumer’s very nervous, given her growing national popularity to ignite ideological warfare among leftist-indoctrinated blacks, including Millennials on college campuses.

Millennial Candidates Embrace Socialism, while Venezuela Chokes on it

Franklin Bynum was unchallenged and won the Democratic nomination to become a criminal court judge in Houston. Mr. Bynum is an avowed socialist and he’s not alone in that conservative state. At least 16 other socialists appeared on the ballot in primary races across Texas.

Socialism has oozed out of college classrooms and into the ballot box. “Yes, I’m running as a socialist,” Mr. Bynum told the New York Times. “I’m a far-left candidate. What I’m trying to do is be a Democrat who actually stands for something, and tells people, ‘Here’s how we are going to materially improve conditions in your life.’”

Wanna be Judge Bynum is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which is growing by leaps and bounds after Trump’s election, even in conservative states.

The NYT reports, “D.S.A.’s membership has increased from about 5,000 to 35,000 nationwide. The number of local groups has grown from 40 to 181, including 10 in Texas. Houston’s once-dormant chapter now has nearly 300 members.”

“Real Socialism” Has Indeed Been Tried — And It’s Been a Disaster

May 5th marks the 200th Anniversary of Karl Marx’s birth, and in spite of inspiring a wide variety of political movements that have caused countless human rights disasters, Marx continues to be an object of admiration among many intellectuals and artists. One such example can be seen in Raoul Peck’s new film The Young Karl Marx which portrays Marx is a principled radical with a laudable thirst for justice.

Fortunately for Marx the man and his reputation, he never personally gained control of the machinery of any state. Thus, the dirty work of actually implementing the necessary “dictatorship of the proletariat” was left up to others. And those who attempted to bring Marxism into the light of practical reality, quickly found that applied Marxism brings impoverishment and the destruction of human freedom.

Lessons for Millennials from Cuba’s New Leader


“Miguel Diaz-Canel was officially named as the new leader of Cuba on Thursday,” proclaimed CNN. This came as a surprise to observers around the world, particularly American millennials who never got word that Miguel Diaz-Canel was even running.

What were his poll numbers with blue-collar workers, women, and the gay and transgender community? What policies was he advancing to improve the Cuban economy? How did he stack up against political rivals in other parties?

Blue Wave Crashing? Poll Shows Support Amongst Millennials Fading

News Commentary

A new poll of registered voters shows support for the Democrat Party is starting to wane amongst a rather shocking segment of the population – millennials.

The group who typically fits in with liberal thought, or the lack thereof, is not only losing their enthusiasm for the party, but they’re starting to recognize the Republican Party as better stewards of the economy.

What an absolute disaster for Democrats who simply assume that the midterm elections, six months away, are there’s for the taking.

According to a new Reuters/Ipsos national poll of over 16,000 registered voters between the coveted age bracket of 18 to 34, support for the Democrat Party over the last two years has dropped 9 points, down to 46 percent overall.

That kind of low-energy love for the opposition party may not bode well for their future, especially with a need to recapture so many seats in 2018.

The enthusiasm gap “presents a potential problem for Democrats who have come to count on millennials as a core constituency,” Reuters writes, “and will need all the loyalty they can get to achieve a net gain of 23 seats to capture control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November.”

How could this possibly be with Democrats tagging the trendy new, uber-cool slogan, “A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages?”

That alone should draw in the young ones.

The worst part for liberals is that these young folks are enjoying the concept of paying less in taxes and getting bonuses for their work that Democrats openly refer to as “crumbs.”

One voter cited in the Reuters article, a 34-year-old African American, almost sheepishly admitted that Republicans are doing more for him than that other party.

“It sounds strange to me to say this about the Republicans, but they’re helping with even the small things,” he said. “They’re taking fewer taxes out of my paycheck. I notice that.”

People notice more money in their paychecks. They notice ‘crumbs.’

In January, Philippe Reines, a former top adviser to Hillary Clinton, worried that millennials would vote Republican once they saw their taxes go down.

He worried they would become content once they saw more money in their pockets.

“I hope millennials don’t fall into a lull,” Reines said. “God knows how many of them will see their taxes go down and base it just on that …”

Perhaps now would be a good time to remind those very same millennials that Democrats have vowed to take those tax cuts away from them, to raise their taxes and decrease the amount of take-home pay they receive.

“It may have to be a ‘replace and repeal,’” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has said of the GOP tax bill. “Replace them (Republicans) and repeal the bill.”

Is that something you really want?

Trump to pull feds out of K-12 education

By S.A. Miller – The Washington Times – Wednesday, April 26, 2017

 

President Trump signed an executive order Wednesday to start pulling the federal government out of K-12 education, following through on a campaign promise to return school control to state and local officials.

The order dubbed the “Education Federalism Executive Order,” will launch a 300-day review of Obama-era regulations and guidance for school districts and directs Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to modify or repeal measures she deems an overreach by the federal government.
