The Politics of Lucy Van Pelt

March 31, 2017

By Riley J. Hood

Growing up, I read enough of Charles Schultz’s Peanuts cartoons to be familiar with the antics of Lucy Van Pelt.  Lucy was a one trick pony who always offered to hold the football for Charlie Brown and then pulled it away at the last moment: Every single time.  She never had to try something new because Charlie Brown never decided to stop listening to her.

Lucy-van-Pelt-and-Charlie-Brown-footballGuess what Charlie Brown?  She did it again. More accurately, the Republican Party FAILED to repeal Obamacare.  I told you so!  It doesn’t take psychic powers to notice an active pattern of the Democrat Party introducing socialist measures, such as the Income Tax, SSI, Welfare, the US Department of Education and Obamacare; then having the Republicans fail to remove such evils after they made campaign promises to do so. Once again, the political football has been snatched away, and the effort to kick Obamacare into the ash heap of bad ideas has failed.

Guess what?  The Republicans won’t change as long as you keep listening to them.  They do the same thing over and over again because it works every single time.  We started the Constitution Party so that you could support candidates that won’t treat you like you are Charlie Brown.  It takes a lot of work to transform a “minor party” into a major political party, but America needs some political competition from the Right.

The United Nations: An Enemy of America


January 2, 2017

By Riley J. Hood-Milwaukee County Constitution Party

In 1993, Al Gore eulogized our dead Army Rangers by saying, “These have died in the service of the UN.” In Al Gore’s mind, American’s don’t fight wars anymore they play at being policemen.  This is the United Nations (UN) “conflict resolution” doctrine.  Anyone with political knowledge knows the UN is an Un-Biblical, Un-American, Socialist, and Foreign Jurisdiction. It is our enemy by its nature, and its actions, whether we are members or not. Worst of all, the UN is a waste of life.
While the UN didn’t exist until after WWII (the League of Nations was founded after WWI) it was the substance of world alliances that caused WWI and WWII. What George Washington called, “entangling alliances.” It was “entangling alliances” and “balances of power” breaking down, that turned a local conflict between Serbia and Austria into WWI. It was repeated when Germany invaded Poland in WWII, bringing France and Great Britain into the war. (Don’t take this example as any sympathy for Hitler on my part. He should have been dispatched long before he invaded Poland. WWII was a “world war” as the result of the Appeasement Policy.) The UN is a world-wide system of entangling alliances. WWIII will be caused if and when it breaks down.  If the UN can be eliminated peacefully, by procedure, then the scope of entangling alliances can be reduced.
America has not fought a real war since WWII. We have had troops in combat, who have fought and won real battles; that is not the same as fighting and winning a real war. The difference is in leadership. In a war, you fight for your country, the USA, and you achieve Victory. The Enemy loses his right to “self-determination.” For example, the Kaiser was forced to abdicate in WWI. After WWII the NAZI Party was outlawed by Public Order #1.  It is outlawed to this day by the German Constitution. The Emperor of Japan was trotted out in front of the Japanese people and forced to tell them that he was not a god. We have not had the results of victory since that time, because we have ceded our foreign policy over to the UN.
KOREA (1950 to 1953), – America jumped in to save the Republic of South Korea from being taken over by the heavily armed Peoples Republic of Korea. This hard fought “UN Police Action” ended up in a stalemate that still exists to this day. North Korea still exists as a Communist State. General MacArthur was sacked, and our officer corps became politicized. We lost 54,246 lives in Korea.
VIETNAM (1959 to 1975) – America took over from the French after their defeat at the hands of the Viet Minh at Dien Ben Phu in 1954. We fought in full combat from 1965 to 1973. Saigon fell in 1975. We won every battle, but not the war; because we were on defense only. Policy was being controlled by the UN via SEATO. Our troops were blamed for the loss. Such was not the case. We lost 58,655 lives in Vietnam.
GRENADA (1983) – The US invaded without UN permission, yet the Reagan Administration installed another socialist government under UN auspices. We lost 18 lives in Grenada.
LEBANON (1982-1984) – The height of UN idiocy; we lost over 300 Americans, mostly US Marines, trying to enforce a UN peace that never existed. Lebanon was in the midst of an Islamic takeover.  300,000 people had died since 1975 in a “civil war.” There was the typical UN power sharing plan, then occupation by the Syrian Army. Our Marines apprehended the PLO only to have the UN relocate them. USMC units and other UN peace-keepers were jammed into a small strip of land along the Mediterranean Sea in Beirut, to enforce a UN cease-fire. Firefights, artillery duels, bombings were regular occurrences. Because it was called “peace-keeping,” most Americans will never care about what happened there.
DESERT STORM (1990 -1991) – America and a coalition enforced a UN Resolution and kick Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait.  It was great Battle Planning that won the battle, but it was still plagued by UN limitations, such as leaving Hussein in place.  We lost 474 American lives.
SOMALIA (1991-1993) – More UN peacekeeping! We ended up with 18 dead soldiers, and their bodies dragged unclothed through the Mogadishu streets in typical Islamic style.
BOSNIA (1994 – 1995) – America occupied Bosnia-Herzegovina and Macedonia to the benefit of Muslims. This was to ostensibly put an end to Ethnic Cleansing, which the Serbs were engaging in. (The Muslim’s are experts at ethnic cleansing, they called it Dhimmitude.) This was when Army Specialist Michael New refused to wear the UN blue beret.
HAITI (1995) – Special Forces ousted General Raoul Cedras, and reinstated the Communist government of the defrocked Roman Catholic priest, Jean-Bertrand Aristide. We still have US Marines stationed there, who in March 2004, had to shoot rioters.
KOSOVO (1998 – 1999) – America bombed the Bosnian Serbs, and the Serbians themselves, all to benefit the Bosnian Muslims.
AFGHANISTAN (2001 to Present) – In response to the September 11, 2001 attacks, we rightly invaded the Taliban controlled Afghanistan, because they were harboring the Al-Qaida terrorist group. The Bush Administration let the UN dictate the peace terms, and set up another Islamic government in the Taliban’s place. Operation Enduring Freedom could be termed Enduring Failure. The Muslims rewarded us with more violence, just like their predecessors the Mujahidin “freedom fighters” did, after we armed and aided them against the Soviet Union.
IRAQ (2003 to 2011) – America invaded on behalf of Bush 43, his friends, and their interests. The UN has dictated the peace, installing an Islamic Constitution, like Afghanistan and Iran. The main beneficiaries were the Shi’ite Muslim majority, until ISIS popped out of Al-Qaida in Iraq.  After Saddam Hussein was executed, we should have withdrawn.  If the UN insists on “nation building” let them use other resources, and not American lives.
We have paid a high price in blood for playing the part of stooge and spear carrier for th UN, an enemy government that engineers our defeat time after time.   The rest of the world sees no difference between “UN” and “US” when it comes to hating Americans.  Withdrawing from NATO would be a good first step.
At the Constitution Party, we hold an American view of our military. The goal of the federal defense policy is to defend the national security interests of the United States. We should be a friend of liberty everywhere, but the protectors of ours alone. We call for the maintenance of a strong state-of-the-art military and we oppose disarmament. We believe that defense expenditures must be must be directly related to the protection of our nation and must be carefully reviewed to eliminate foreign aid and inefficiency. Under no circumstances would we commit US forces to serve under any flag but that of the United States of America, and never in combat without a Constitutional Declaration of War.”  We support American policy, the American military and American Victory.

You don’t have to punt away the truth


“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him;

male and female created he them.”Genesis 1:27

By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman

Recently, Governor Scott Walker was asked by Justin Webb if he was “comfortable with the idea of evolution,” to which Governor Walker replied,

“For me, I’m going to punt on that one as well.”

The Constitution Party of Wisconsin (CPoW) is willing to provide some talking points for Governor Walker, sheepish Christians and conservatives in general.  Here we go –

·         “I’m not comfortable with evolution, because I have never seen anything evolve, and no one else has either, that is why some scientists need millions of years to explain their atheism.”

·         “I’m an American, I affirm the Declaration of Independence, which states, ‘We hold these truths to be self -evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness–‘ I affirm that men are created by God, and that Rights come from God, and they do not come from the state.”

·         “I affirm the Holy Bible to be God’s Word, right from the very beginning, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 and the first chapter of Genesis speaks of six days, as opposed to six billion years.”

I could keep going, but you get the point. It is time for Americans to start acting like Americans. Charles Darwin didn’t do the British people any favors by attacking the Bible at its very beginning, and largely destroying the faith of that once great nation. We don’t need Darwin’s “innovation,” here in the USA. In fairness to Scott Walker, he did recover his dignity when pressed by certain left-wingers to “Man-up,” Governor Walker replied,

“Both science & my faith dictate my belief that we are created by God. I believe faith & science are compatible, & go hand in hand.” 

That answer would have been the right thing to say to Mr. Webb.

Building the Middle Class?


“A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering tongue worketh ruin.” Proverbs 26:28

 By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman

I have often heard it stated by members of the Democrat Party from Obama on down, that they must, “Build up the Middle-Class.” One must ask what do they mean by Middle-Class?

The Democrat Party’s definition: Middle-class is an income bracket, whatever the IRS says is mid-range for that particular year. For example, if the IRS says $50,000 per year, then that is middle-class. The Democrat Party’s Middle-Class building effort consists of raising the levels of Welfare and SSI spending, so people who don’t work, not only have a “guaranteed income,” but a “Guaranteed Middle-class income” at that.

The Real American definition of Middle-Class: This is a class of people who work for a living, and they differ from the working poor, in that they have in demand skills, with which they can command a higher compensation. They strive to be financially solvent and upwardly mobile. Such persons are few these days.

So the Liberal, in the name of “income equality” which is “the equal liability of all labor,” clause from the Communist Manifesto, actually destroys the Middle-Class his leveling schemes. A welfare recipient who receives $50,000 a year in income plus subsidies is not Middle-Class, but an over-bloated loafer, because they do not work. The worker, who is Middle-Class on paper, is reduced to “working poor status” because his taxes and fees leave him hard pressed to make ends meet. In an effort to create in demand skills, the liberal creates higher education grants and loans, which create student debt, and flood the market with a particular skill set, out stripping the demand, driving those particular wages down, and creating an educated debtor class.

America is better off when liberals don’t try to build the middle-class, and the middle-class is better off as well. At the Constitution Party of Wisconsin (CPoW), we reject the liberal vision of “building the middle-class,” or “class building,” in any form. This is nothing more than class warfare.

Our platform preamble asserts that each individual is endowed by his Creator with certain unalienable rights; the right to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of the individual’s personal interest. The freedom to own, use and freely dispose of property is an inseparable extension of the individual’s unalienable rights. The legitimate function of government is to secure these rights through the preservation of domestic tranquility, a strong national defense, and the promotion of equal justice for all. If left unchecked, it is the nature of government to usurp the liberty of its citizens and eventually become a major violator of the people’s rights. Therefore, it is essential to bind government with the chains of the Constitution.

In a state of freedom, the middle-class will once again build itself, without direct government aid. The surest way to ruin the blessings of higher education, home ownership, and gainful employment is to turn these things into welfare benefits.

Let’s go all the way!

“He that justifieth the wicked and he that condemneth the just, 

even they both are an abomination before the Lord.” Proverbs 17:15

By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman

            Milwaukee County Supervisor Khalif Rainey is proposing a resolution to rename Red Arrow Park “Dontre Hamilton Square” in honor a mentally ill vagrant who attacked a Milwaukee Police Officer with his own baton.  The only problem is that Red Arrow Park is named the Army’s 32nd Division, aka the “Red Arrow Division.” But then again, veterans and patriotic Americans should take a back seat to people who commit criminal acts. Why stop at Red arrow Park? Let’s go all the way, here are a few suggestions:

·         The Federal Building could be renamed the Idi Amin building.

·         The Bradley Center could be renamed the Mao-Zedong Center.

·         The US Bank building could be renamed the Josef Stalin building.

·         Lincoln Avenue could be re-named Dahmer Avenue.

·         Grant Park could be ne-named Osama Bin-laden Park.

·         In Bay View, where I live, California field was renamed Sijan Field, after Corporal Lance Sijan, our local Congressional Medal Honor winner, but times are different, and maybe we could rename the field Pol-Pot field or Ho Chi Minh field.

You get the point.  People named their children after Paul the Apostle, and they name their attack dog after Nero, the Roman Emperor, because they understood Proverbs 22:1  We name places after people who do honorable things, we do not name public places after crooks and criminals. I would oppose a John Dillinger Park as much as I oppose this current resolution.

Today, people have no concept between innocence and guilt, and I call upon all of Wisconsin’s pastors to start emphasizing “But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evil doer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters. Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on his behalf.” I Peter 4:14-15

Just as there is a difference between a terrorist and a martyr, there is a difference between police force used against the innocent and police force used against the guilty. In this case the man whom Alderman Ramey wishes to honor, Dontre Hamilton was never proven guilty, but it is unquestionable that Dontre Hamilton attacked a Milwaukee Police Officer, who then fired in self-defense.

Jahi McMath’s Right to Life

Jahi McMath

These six things the Lord hates and seven are an abomination to him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, an heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among the brethren.” Proverbs 6:16-19

By Riley J. Hood – CPoW State Chairman

The Constitution Party of Wisconsin (CPoW) condemns the ghoulish way Ms. Jahi McMath was treated by Oakland’s Children’s Hospital.  What have we become, when a children’s hospital no longer tries to save a child’s life?

Jahi is a thirteen-year-old girl who suffered complications after a tonsillectomy, resulting in brain damage. Because a person suffers brain damage doesn’t give anyone permission to say that person “brain dead” or “legally dead” and then refuse treatment when they are physically alive.

It is self-evident that Jahi is very much alive. According to Dr. Paul Byrne, “Clearly, a patient with a beating heart, circulation and respiration, is not a cadaver.” Dr. Byrne further asserts, “No one shall be declared dead unless respiratory and circulatory systems and the entire brain have been destroyed.”

There is a big difference between brain damage and declaring someone brain dead.  There is a big difference between not being able to save a life and not even trying to save a life. Jahi is in this situation through no fault of her own and only a criminal would want to let her die and refuse to allow another hospital or doctor to intervene on her behalf.

The criminal this time isn’t a family member trying to refuse treatment, it is the hospital itself. Neither situation is acceptable, but this represents another lowering of our national ethics.

The CPoW party platform states “We also oppose all government ‘legalization’ of euthanasia, infanticide and suicide.”

I finally would reassert the United States Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

Let the Sharing Begin


For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders;

but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.” Matthew 23:4

By Riley J. Hood – CPoW State Chairman

money-heart1-281x300On Sunday, December 29th, 2013, I was listening to a news report about how long-term unemployment benefits are going to run out, and the fault is with “conservatives,” who want liberals to “cut other areas of the budget,” to come up with the hand out.

I understand losing your job, I lost mine in May 2009 and didn’t get long term unemployment.  I had only rental money coming in which was sporadic, as my tenant was in the same situation I was, otherwise expenses were eating into my savings. I am one of the 1% of Americans who is actually solvent, debt-free, and a saver. I live within my means. If I wasn’t I would have lost my house, and rightly so.

The situation is worse today in Wisconsin and America, than it was in 2009.  Now your government forces you, a free citizen of a free country, to buy auto insurance and health-care insurance.

While I usually refrain from making suggestions to CPoW’s political opponents, I have one this time. Dear Liberals, let the sharing begin. You can, in a heroic deed of utopianism, level America’s income disparity and bail out these poor people, by giving your own money to them directly.

 Where do we begin? How about George Soros and Ted Turner? They have plenty of dollars, yet hanging on to them must irk their Communist sensibilities. I got the answer, George and Ted can bail these people out. I have another answer, Congress and all government civil servants are rather nicely paid, courtesy of the tax-payers, so make every civil servant, “adopt a ninety-niner,” and deduct the three hundred dollars a week from their checks directly, more from each Congressman. I think their charitable attitude will only increase, when they have less personal money.

The only people who should be exempt from this scheme would be the working tax-payer, who has run out of disposable income a long time ago. I’m proud of my little idea. I could be good at spending other people’s money, but then couldn’t we all. Seriously, if the Liberal cared so much, they could do this from their own wealthy resources, as it is, their wealth is only used for destructive purposes, like promoting Planned Parenthood or one-world government. They are hypocrites.

The Constitution Party of Wisconsin is in favor of private relief, and private charity. Cutting out pork elsewhere, to sustain continued handouts, is a good first step. Rolling back the perpetual debts of mandated insurance is another good step. Getting the government out of charity altogether should be our ultimate goal.

Finally, how acquainted can the current administration be with poverty, when its leader grew up rich, never had a hungry day, never did a day’s hard work, and is a creature of liberal universities? Maybe our fearless leader can lead by example he could adopt “20 ninety-niners.” Then he could fund a soup kitchen in Hawaii, he’s so smart he could engineer it from a golf course.
