The War on Terrorism Has Met the Enemy, and It’s US

Godfather Politics

Communist poster

Mariana was a classmate of mine when I was in middle school. She was a beautiful girl, and also very smart and hard working. She was popular: the other girls felt privileged to be her friends, and all the boys had a secret crush on her. Her grades were always high, and she helped others in their studies. In the schools back in the days of Communism, the teachers decided who sat where in the classroom, and the banks were always double (to save space). Whoever was assigned to sit next to her felt privileged. And yet, she was always quite humble, and her popularity never spoiled her, and she was always nice and polite to everyone. Her parents had trained her well.

Until one day, the principal came to our classroom, and said that Mariana will from now on sit in the back of the classroom, alone. Something had happened, but no one told us what. We were actively discouraged from playing with her in the recesses, or from asking her for help in our studies. The girls stopped being friends with her; we, the boys, felt something had changed, and that we shouldn’t try to approach her or pay her compliments, or even offer her help.

Years later I found out what had happened: Her father was caught listening to “enemy radio stations” like Radio Free Europe, BBC, and others. How he was caught, I have no idea.

For about 40 years in Eastern Europe, and 70 years in the Soviet Union, the “people” had an “enemy.” Or at least, that’s what the official propaganda said. The enemy was the West, its capitalists, its military leaders. The enemy was ready to invade us, to crush us, if we weren’t always ready for battle. If it wasn’t for the enemy, our economy would flourish, and we wouldn’t have to have all these limitations on our freedoms. The American imperialists were looking for every opportunity to steal our liberties and our prosperity. (As my father once wittily remarked, “They must be really desperate.”) We drilled nuclear attacks, we were instructed to watch for spies and traitors, we were taught to put up with curfews and shortages and blackouts – all in the name of defeating the “enemy.” Even slogans and placards reflected it; I still remember the one they had at the entrance of a government poultry plant in my town: “Every egg a stone, every hen a bomb in the imperialist camp!” These American imperialists, they were evil and wanted to take what we had.

In the final account, it wasn’t the Americans we fought but ourselves. The West was only a convenient scarecrow for the Communist governments to wage a war on their own citizens. It was the citizens of the Soviet Union and of the nations in Eastern Europe that were the main target of the propaganda of “American threat.” At the end of the day, millions of them were arrested, enslaved, beaten, killed, or molested in the name of fighting the “enemy.” And their children too, because as much Communism didn’t believe in the traditional family, the wife and the children of a “traitor” suffered with him. Everyday we were finding the enemy, and it wasn’t the West; it was us. And our own governments treated us as the enemy; or worse.

This last week we discovered who the true enemy of the War on Terror is. It has never been the Muslim terrorists. To the contrary, our own government for the last 20 years has been flirting with them, has been financing and arming them, and has been allowing them free entry in America. No government program for foreign aid to Muslim nations has been abolished in the War of Terror; to the contrary, even with the numerous proofs that in the most part American taxpayers’ money to the Muslim world goes directly to terrorist organizations, we still keep giving. Muslim leaders are courted, and Islam has been declared a “religion of peace” by our own politicians. The War on Terror never really started; just like the “threat of the West” in Communist Eastern Europe, it was only a rhetorical device to convince the American public to accept the crackdown on another enemy: the American people. It was only designed to make accept the Patriot Act, the TSA humiliating rape of Americans, the violation of all moral and legal and Constitutional rule by our own government against its own citizens.

And this last week, we saw our own representatives in the Senate voting to allow for indefinite detention of American citizens without a due process of law; and in fact, against the due process of law. Yes, even Republican Senators.

In short, we found the enemy that our Federal government is fighting against, and it is not Muslim terrorism. It is US.

The people of Eastern Europe eventually revolted and won the war against their own governments. No government can win a war against its own people, if the people realize who their true enemy is. It’s a good lesson for us today.

Gun background checks smashes single-day high by 32%

Godfather Politics
Verbatim Post

Guns for Sale

USA Today reports that “Gun dealers flooded the FBI with background check requests for prospective buyers last Friday, smashing the single-day, all-time high by 32%, according to bureau records. Deputy Assistant FBI Director Jerry Pender said the checks, required by federal law, surged to 129,166 during the day, far surpassing the previous high of 97,848 on Black Friday of 2008.”

Some people have “attributed the unusual surge to a convergence of factors, including an increasing number of first-time buyers seeking firearms for protection and women who are being drawn to sport shooting and hunting.”

People have always bought guns for protection. Why the surge now? Because a lot of people are scared. When the government checks stop coming or if local and state governments start slashing budgets, we’re going to see riots in the streets. Once a mob mentality takes hold, there’s no telling what people might do.

There’s also the threat of violence from some high-profile liberals who have the ear of the discontented and disenfranchised. Cornel West, a professor of something at Princeton, called for another war on poverty and that the push for more entitlements “is going to be fought in the streets.”

Liberals get violent when they don’t get their way. Just look what happened in the 1960s when President Obama’s friend Bill Ayers, a co-founder of the radical Weather Underground, and his wife Bernardine Dohrn didn’t get their way. They blew up stuff.

The manifesto that Dohrn helped to write had as its goal a revolution that would lead to “the destruction of US imperialism and the achievement of a classless world: world communism.” The same message is coming out of the Occupy Wall Street crowds.

In her famous December 1969 “War Council” speech Dohrn said the following about the Sharon Tate and retail store owners Leno and Rosemary LaBianca murders by the Charles Manson clan: “First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, then they even shoved a fork into the victim’s stomach! Wild!” In greeting each other, delegates to the war council often spread their fingers to signify the fork.

And what about Bill Ayers who spent years teaching in a major university?:

Ayers participated in the Days of Rage riot in Chicago in October 1969, and in December was at the “War Council” meeting in Flint, Michigan. Two major decisions came out of the “War Council.” The first was to immediately begin a violent, armed struggle (e.g., bombings and armed robberies) against the state without attempting to organize or mobilize a broad swath of the public. The second was to create underground collectives in major cities throughout the country. Larry Grathwohl, a Federal Bureau of Investigation informant in the Weatherman group from the fall of 1969 to the spring of 1970, stated that “Ayers, along with Bernardine Dohrn, probably had the most authority within the Weatherman.”

Dennis Henigan, acting president of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, was “skeptical” of the Black Friday gun surge. “I think there may be no real significance at all,” Henigan said.

He’s dreaming. About 25% of the sales were first-time buyers, many of them women. People are scared.

This 1% versus the 99% percent has people worried. A 1 percenter is someone who has more than the other guy. That means that a family with kids who owns a house and two cars is a 1 percenter in the eyes of some 20-something living at home with mom and dad. The 99 percenters are being told that the rich aren’t paying their fair share. If that’s true, and President Obama is restrained by the law and the oath he took to uphold the law to do anything about it, maybe it’s time for “the people” to take action.

Background checks for gun purchases, required by federal law, surged to 129,166 on Black Friday, far surpassing the previous high of 97,848 on Black Friday of 2008. The people aren’t taking any chances.

Comment on WRSA

It’s not easy to give up all that you have worked for all of your life. Think of all the hours of hard labor, hating what you do for the sake of your children, so they might have something or some advatage you didn’t have. And now think of “them” taking it away.

Well “they” have taken it away. NINTY THREE SENATORS just flushed the Bill of RIghts down the Toilet. This is not just our work they flushed, this is the work of our fathers as well, and their fathers before them. My ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War against England on my mom’s side. Fought against the Mexicans in 1836 on my Dad’s side, for Texas independence. My dad was a tail gunner in WW2. I joined the AF to continue the family tradition of fighting for freedom. Not as a career. None of my ancestors were career soldiers. Civilian warriors all. And went back to their real work as builders and engineers after the wars they fought for our freedom. Freedom that we have now lost.

Now it is time for a new war. Not of our choosing, but one again that has been thrust upon us. This time by our own government. Traitors in the houses of representatives; aliens in the white house; subversives in the judiciary.

It is up to us now.

We have already lost our “stuff.” Let us not lose our humanity; our children, and our manhood as well.

Caught with their hands in the cookie jar: Justice Withdraws Inaccurate Gunwalker Letter It Sent To Congress

Via A Trainwreck In Maxwell

Under fire for losing track of weapons that turned up at crime scenes along the Southwest border, the Justice Department has taken the extraordinary step of formally withdrawing an inaccurate letter about the episode that it sent to Congress earlier this year.

Deputy Attorney General Jim Cole sent nearly 1,400 pages of emails and other documents to Capitol Hill late Friday afternoon that lay bare the raw and sometimes cringe-worthy process by which the letter was drafted. The materials contain clues into how misleading information about the botched gun trafficking operation made it into a Feb. 4, 2011 letter to Congress that department leaders have since acknowledged was false.

Misleading Congress can be a prosecutable offense if a person who makes the statements knows they are false.

Our Marxist Administration Urges "Creativity" by Colleges to Gain Diversity

Via Tom Stedham
The Obama administration on Friday urged colleges and universities to get creative in improving racial diversity at their campuses, throwing out a Bush-era interpretation of recent Supreme Court rulings that limited affirmative action in admissions.

The new guidelines issued by the Departments of Justice and Education replaced a 2008 document that essentially warned colleges and universities against considering race at all. Instead, the guidelines focus on the wiggle room in the court decisions involving the University of Michigan, suggesting that institutions use other criteria — students’ socioeconomic profiles, residential instability, the hardships they have overcome — that are often proxies for race. Schools could even grant preferences to students from certain schools selected for, among other things, their racial composition, the new document says.

“Post-secondary institutions can voluntarily consider race to further the compelling interest of achieving diversity,” reads the 10-page guide sent to thousands of college admissions officials on Friday afternoon. In some cases, it says, “race can be outcome determinative.”

The administration issued a parallel 14-page outline on Friday for the nation’s 17,000 public school districts, explaining what government lawyers consider to be acceptable ways that educators can seek to reduce racial segregation, which has been increasing nationwide.

The two documents, issued as the presidential campaign heats up and as the Supreme Court considers whether to hear a new affirmative action case, were designed to give educators a clear administration interpretation of three high court cases that, since 2003, have limited the use of race in admissions, zoning and other school policies.

The contrast with the Bush guidelines interpreting the same three cases is stark.

Newt Was Right About Being a Janitor

Godfather Politics
Verbatim Post


Newt Gingrich made some media waves with his comments about how poor kids should be taught how to work, including taking jobs at the schools they attend to perform janitorial work. As usual, Poverty-Pimp Al Sharpton took offense. In case you haven’t heard Newt’s remarks, here are a few of them:

“Really poor children in really poor neighborhoods have no habits for working and have nobody around them who works. So they literally have no habit of showing up on Monday,” Gingrich told more than 500 employees inside the Nationwide Insurance lunchroom, NBC News reported. “So they literally have no habit of showing up on Monday. They have no habit of staying all day. They have no habit of ‘I do this and you give me cash,’ unless it’s illegal.”

Adding that he thought child labor laws to be “truly stupid,” he continued: “And let me get into the janitor thing. What if they became assistant janitors, and their job was to mop the floor and clean the bathroom?”

Of course, Newt was generalizing as you have to do when you’re talking on any subject. Some poor kids do work, and most of them aren’t involved in illegal activity. But there is no doubt that the welfare state makes it easier for young people not to work and the rhetoric of people like Sharpton gives them reasons why they shouldn’t have to work because rich people have all the money and they’re not willing to “share” it with poor people.

If you read what Sharpton said about Newt’s proposals, one would get the impression that he is advocating that poor children should give up aspirations to be doctors, lawyers, and educators and resign themselves to being janitors. Any sane person knows that Gingrich said and meant no such thing. All jobs, janitorial jobs included, are stepping stones, a series of learning experiences, to other jobs.

When I was in high school, I worked in a gas station, washed pots and pans at a restaurant, delivered newspapers, and worked in a grocery store. When I was in college, I again worked in a gas station and a hardware store. The hardware store was the best job I ever had. I learned how to cut glass, make concrete slabs, drive a full-size dump truck, thread pipe, fix plumbing fixtures, and one hundred and one other things. When I graduated from college, I again worked in a grocery store in a right-to-work state where I worked 60 hours per week. When a new store opened, they offered me the job of assistant manager. I then moved up to custodian in a very large church as I saved money for seminary where I worked as a bookstore manager (another great learning experience job) and a custodian cleaning a church.

Today, I run four businesses.

Al Sharpton should watch a few episodes of Malcolm in the Middle. It doesn’t take long to get the gist of this very dysfunctional, working class, but loving family. A few episodes from each season will do. Then watch the last episode. Malcolm is shown attending Harvard, earning his way as a janitor.

“Rev.” Al might also want to take a look at the true story of Vivien Thomas. A gifted and talented carpenter and woodworker who lost his job during the Depression and ended up cleaning out dog cages at Vanderbilt University. His hard work and studied determination in the face of pre-civil rights era racism and discrimination led to him teaching medicine at Johns Hopkins University. The Journal of Surgical Case Reports (JSCR) announced in January 2010 that their annual prizes for the best case report written by a doctor and best case report written by a medical student would be named after Thomas. Something the Lord Made, the film about Thomas’ life, is a must see.

It’s Sharpton and his race cronies and the policies they push and support that are hurting poor people.

PakistanTroops To Return Fire If Attacked Again

Via The Excavator

Verbatim Post

In the aftermath of the NATO attack on Pakistan’s check post in Mohmand Agency on November 26th, the country protested strongly claiming it was ‘unprovoked’ and ‘deliberate’. About 24 Pakistani troops had died in the attack. Subsequently, Pakistan blocked NATO’s Afghan supply line, gave a 15 day notice to the Americans for vacating the Shamsi airbase, and boycotted the Bonn conference.

Although US and NATO passed condolences and sincere regrets, they did not apologize. Meanwhile, Pakistan refused today to take part in the joint NATO investigation of the incident. Now a more serious escalation is taking shape that cannot be simply discounted as rhetoric.


Pakistan has declared it will retaliate if NATO forces attack its territory again. General Kayani after a meeting with his top commanders commented that NATO would now be viewed as a threat. Former Federal Administered Tribal Areas secretary Brig (retd) Mehmood Shah said,
“Until now the focus of security forces at the Afghan border was to take action against militants and stop cross border infiltration but now they will also be keeping an eye on future NATO strikes.”

Defense analyst Lt General (Retd) Abdul Qayum added that according to the decision, Pakistani soldiers would not have to seek approval from their commanders to retaliate against NATO airstrikes. Reports also suggest Pakistan is considering deploying more troops along its borders with both Afghanistan and India and that it has already equipped the troops with the appropriate weaponry.

Meanwhile, according to a British newspaper, NATO has decided to increase its operations against insurgent groups in Pakistan. The military organization is considering escalating aerial attacks and cross border ground raids. ISAF commander, General John Allen, said the need to confront the sanctuaries in Pakistan was "one of the reasons we are shifting our operations to the east".

NATO is hoping to reduce extremism from the tribal belts so that Afghan security personnel will be able to contain the threat when power is handed over in 2014. US and Afghanistan are also likely to sign a strategic deal at the Bonn Conference that allows presence of US troops there up to 2024.

It is unclear how NATO will seek to proceed following last week’s air strikes, which killed 24 Pakistani soldiers and raised tensions between Pakistan and NATO. However, PoliTact sees a war of nerves and a much more serious escalation in the making.

PoliTact would continue to monitor this delicate situation closely.

Fort Worth school district bans Christmas

Via The Dorkfish Express

Students and parents in Forth Worth, TX are outraged after the school district declared that Christmas celebrations – including visits from Santa Claus would no longer be allowed during the school day.

The Fort Worth Independent School District also banned students exchanging Christmas gifts after they determined that public schools could no longer “endorse or sponsor any religious activity or doctrine.”

A spokesman for the school district told Fox News & Commentary that “in an effort to be politically correct” teachers are not allowed to “post something that would foster or promote or impugn one doctrine or religion over another – or even give that impression.”

Seasonal decorations are still allowed but they have to comply with the district’s ban on decorations that are “religious in nature.” In other words, don’t expect to see a Nativity Scene on school grounds.

So much for "scientific consensus"

Vox Popoli
Verbatim Post
The models were wrong, the predictions were wrong, and now the basic assumptions underlying the hypotheses appear to be wrong too:
The Economist reports on some new cutting-edge climate research published in a peer-reviewed article in Science that challenges some core green doom warnings. In particular, the study suggests that the probable sensitivity of the earth’s climate to increases in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is far lower than the assumptions traditionally used by the (already discredited) Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Not only that, the authors find that the existence of a so-called “fat tail” — the notion that extreme temperature changes in response to increases in atmospheric CO2 are likely — is illusory.
The failure of the global warming "science" needs to be rubbed hard and repeatedly into the noses of all the scientists and science fetishists who claim that science cannot be questioned by non-scientists, or indeed, that their statements bear any more weight than those made by the fat homeless guy living in van DOWN BY THE RIVER!

3rd state facing challenge over Obama eligibility

Alabama complaint alleges, 'We're now talking of fraud'

A formal challenge to Barack Obama's candidacy in the 2012 presidential election has been filed now in a third state, where a submission by a citizen, Albert Hendershot, alleges that the Democratic Party "intends to act negligently or fraudulently in a manner that will cause irreparable harm to the citizens of Alabama."

Earlier challenges to Obama's candidacy were filed in New Hampshire and Georgia. State officials in New Hampshire, noting that the application had been filled out and the $1,000 fee had been paid, rejected the complaint, which now is being appealed.

The complaints note that state officials are constitutionally obligated to prevent fraudulent ballots in their jurisdictions, along with concerns that the Democrats, as in 2008, are proposing a candidate that is linked to fraud through his presentation of a contested birth certificate as well as his use of a suspect Social Security number.

"This complaint does not request or require [officials] find that President Obama is not qualified to hold the office of president of the United States. Instead, this complaint simply asserts that sufficient evidence exists to make any reasonable person doubt, in light of the evidence, that Barack Obama is a 'natural-born citizen,'" said the document, which was posted online by the

The website, which pursues information about Obama's background, reports that among the various documents for Obama that remain concealed are his passport records, kindergarten records, Punahou School records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, University of Chicago scholarly articles, Illinois State Bar Association records, Illinois State Senate records/schedules, medical records, Obama/Dunham marriage license, Obama/Dunham divorce documents, Soetoro/Dunham marriage license and adoption records.

Letter to the Home Secretary regarding Emma West

From: Dr Frank Ellis

To: Theresa May, Home Secretary

Re: The Arrest of Miss Emma West

Date: 2nd December 2011

Dear Home Secretary

I am writing to you to protest the outrageous arrest of Miss Emma West on a charge of allegedly racially abusing Poles and various non-white immigrants. I have to say that I found the video very distressing. It was yet another reminder of the kind of changes that immigrants have inflicted on England. To live in the south-east of England, to have to endure day in and day out the unwelcome presence of millions of non-white immigrants must eventually exact its toll on a member of the white indigenous population. Close and unavoidable contact with blacks is psychologically stressful, culturally repellent, disorientating and often very dangerous. There are no advantages whatsoever, just problems.

There comes a time when a person just cannot take any more. Every day on the BBC and the other monopoly stream media people are told that diversity is a wonderful gift; that immigrants enrich us and so on, ad nauseam. The reality is somewhat different. Immigration is destroying our country and in the process people like Emma West and millions of other white people are being racially, culturally and physically dispossessed and turned into a cowed minority in their own country. Emma West had enough: she speaks for millions of white people.

I cannot see anything in the video that would justify her being arrested. I conclude therefore that the arrest of Emma West was motivated by political expediency and maliciousness. The aim of her arrest was to cow other whites into silence so that they will not speak out against what is happening to England.

Jeremy Hardy (BBC) demands that people who voted for the BNP be executed; Cameron incites hatred and violence towards Nick Griffin MEP by publicly referring to him as ‘a ghastly piece of filth’ and Clarkson says that public sector workers should be executed in front of their families. Clarkson was only being ‘silly’. Is that what Cameron said? And what happens when a young mother speaks for England? You send the useless police, the same cowards who were too frightened to deal with black immigrant rioters in August, to arrest her. Meanwhile the immigrants keep swarming into England, pushing us aside, mocking us and living off the wealth of another nation. And if an Englishwoman protests in language that might be inappropriate in a university seminar (unless you are black and from the hood of course) but summarises the problem in brutally plain English, she is treated as if she is a monster.

Emma West has a son. Her son has been stolen from her. If he suffers any harm from paedophiles, perverts, blacks who hate whites, immigrant doctors who can just about walk and talk - not necessarily decent English - at the same time, you will be responsible. Emma West must be released immediately, reunited with her family and left in peace. Then you can give the order to expel the immigrants. I want my England, my Motherland back. Get on with it.

Late Daughter of Stalin Claims Harassment by Herman Cain

The People's Cube
Verbatim Post

In a book recently discovered by MSNBC entitled My Twenty First Letter by Svetlana Peters, the late daughter of Joseph Stalin claims she was sexually harassed by Herman Cain. “I ordered a pizza and Herman Cain personally answered the phone. I should have taken warning by his voice,” she said in a recently discovered interview with Chris Matthews, “it was just too friendly.” Straining to hold back tears of grief and shame, she recounted, “He appeared at the door with the pizza, and I paid him some money for it. Clearly he was showering me with pepperonis and mushrooms. He smiled, said, ‘Thanks for the tip,’ and left. I have never forgotten that smile, or that pizza. They haunt me to this day.” Asked bluntly if anything inappropriate happened, she said the extra beet topping sent a thrill up her leg, at which point Matthews began perspiring conspicuously.

Not to be outdone, George Stephanopoulos immediately arranged an interview with Shirley MacLaine who was Svetlana Peters in a previous life. “At last I feel I can speak out,” said MacLaine/Peters. “The pain, the pain, the intimidation, the gifts, my potential book deal, the harassment…” she monotoned with glassy eyes. “Pizza, 9-9-9, the mark of the beast…” “I think that interview nailed him,” boasted Stephanopoulos, “This is the most credible witness to come forward yet.”

Calls for Cain to withdraw from the race abounded. “There was an inappropriate exchange of money for pleasure with another woman about whom his wife had no knowledge,” said Debbie Wasserman Schultz, “If he has an ounce of integrity left, and that’s questionable, he should bow out immediately.”

“No African-American leader should have questionable morals!” shouted the Reverend Jesse Jackson to a crowd of dozens of supporters. “This reminds me of Selma! The man ought to step down! Keep-hope-alive!”

“Pizza is fattening,” commented Michelle Obama, “and therefore he not only intimidates and harasses women at will, but he addicts them to extra cheese toppings that are unhealthy and ought to be banned. I've never been more ashamed of my country.”

“I am shocked and outwaged that such a thing could happen wight here in Amerwica,” said retiring congressman Barney Frank. “If I did such a thing, I would wesign immediately.”

“I never thought about the pizza angle,” said former president Bill Clinton. “Do the chicks really go for it?”

Mr. Cain continues to stand by his story that the multiple allegations by credible and highly respected witnesses are false, thus slandering, intimidating, and harassing innocent women further in one short, probably false statement.

DOA Action Alert: Rep. Walsh to UN: No Gun Control Treaties

Representative Joe Walsh (R-IL) has drafted a bill that would block U.S. funding to the United Nations if it seeks to implement gun control measures affecting U.S. citizens.
Despite victories by gun owners in elections and legislative battles throughout the country in recent years, on the international front gun control is moving quickly.

Most significantly, in 2012 the UN plans to release a final draft of the Arms Trade Treaty—a treaty that will have severe consequences for American gun owners.

Meetings are held behind close doors, but from information gathered by GOA we believe that the ATT will, at the very least, require gun owner registration and microstamping of ammunition.

The ATT will define manufacturing so broadly that any gun owner who adds an accessory such as a scope or changes a stock on a firearm would be required to obtain a manufacturing license.

It would also likely include a ban on many semi-automatic firearms (like the Clinton gun ban) and demand the mandatory destruction of surplus ammo and confiscated firearms.

President Obama, not surprisingly, welcomes the treaty. He knows that he is unlikely to get such radical proposals through the Congress, so the UN provides him a backdoor way to enact gun control.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is also on board and began pushing for the treaty as soon as she was confirmed in her position. “The United States is prepared to work hard for a strong international standard in this area,” she said.

Since treaties must be ratified by the Senate, GOA is working continually to buck up weak-kneed Senators who might be pressured to ratify the treaty.

But the House, which controls the nations’ purse strings, can also play a role in killing the ATT (or any other anti-gun treaty, for that matter).

Rep. Joe Walsh’s legislation will cut U.S. funding to the UN if the international body imposes any restrictions on Americans’ gun rights.

This is a huge deal, because without the contributions of the United States, the UN would be crippled financially. According to government reports, U.S. taxpayers foot the bill for 22 percent of the UN’s regular budget and 27 percent of its “peacekeeping” budget.

American gun owners, in other words, are funding the organization that wants to do away with the Second Amendment!

Rep. Walsh is putting the UN on notice: back off our gun rights.

Entitled the “The Second Amendment Protection Act of 2011,” Rep. Walsh is now seeking original cosponsors to join him in the House. He plans to introduce the bill within the next week.

Rep. Walsh highlights for his House colleagues the necessity of his proposal, noting that:

* It is the constitutional power of Congress to determine United States foreign policy through the ratification of international treaties;

* U.S. Presidents, by signing on to treaties, have opened the door for international organizations to unilaterally regulate the lives of citizens of the United States;

* International and transnational organizations force their rules on people of the United States through conventions, multilateral agreements, and nonratified treaties, such as agreements that affect the private ownership of firearms by law-abiding citizens; and

* United States sovereignty is risked by domestic legal applicability of international treaties and executive agreements that have not been voted on and congressionally adopted through formal processes.

Let’s help Rep. Joe Walsh get as many cosponsors as possible. In the process, we’ll find out how many Representatives are willing to stand up to the behemoth United Nations in defense of the Second Amendment.

China’s economy is “on the brink of bankruptcy.” Every province is a Greece

China’s economy is on the “brink of bankruptcy” and “every province is a Greece.” Even though, this is factual, “under this system, we are not allowed to speak the truth.” These remarks are not from a dissident or a foreign analyst but from Larry Lang, professor of finance at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and a well-known figure on mainland television. Lang who was speaking in Shenyang City, in northern China’s Liaoning Province demanded strick restrictions on audio and video recordings of his lecture and farbade the audience from reproducing it. However, a leaked audio recording of the speech was made and is now available on Youtube.

In an article on Prof Lang’s leaked speech, The Epoch Times quoted the professor as saying, “What I’m about to say is all true. But under this system, we are not allowed to speak the truth.”

“Don’t think that we are living in a peaceful time now. Actually, the media cannot report anything at all. Those of us who do TV shows are so miserable and frustrated, because we cannot do any programs,” Lang said. For him, five factors explain China’s crisis.

Sebelius: Government Healthcare Is a Matter of National Security

Braindead, useful idiot.

Verbatim Post

Kathleen Sebelius, whom ObamaCare makes one of the most powerful people in the world, unsurprisingly wants this hated attempt to nationalize the healthcare industry to survive challenges on the grounds of its blatant unconstitutionality. The rhetoric she’s resorting to is enough to cause high blood pressure:

During a visit to the South Carolina coast, Sebelius spoke with a black nurses group and then was to attend a conference on improving access to health care.

The nation’s health “really is an issue of national security,” she told the nurses group…

Once again we see that the Obama Regime is incapable of grasping the meaning of the term national security. But then, maybe Ms. Supercilious (aka the Abortion Queen) has a point. If Obama’s power grabs aren’t a matter of national security, what could be?

Try to imagine the Abortion Queen next meeting with a white nurses group, just to be fair — if there were such a thing. This offers a clue as to why public policy benefits strident minorities at the expense of everyone else.

When this is applied to federal control of healthcare, which will mean rationing here just as it has everywhere else that has succumbed to socialized medicine, your skin color could cost you your life — unless you’re lucky enough to have oppressed skin color. Already the funding of studies by the moonbats running the National Institutes of Health has resulted in an unproductive obsession with mostly nonexistent “healthcare disparities” at the expense of meaningful scientific research. Curing cancer would be nice, but the real money goes to researching the possibility that tumors hurt worse for polysexual African American dwarves due to historic insensitivities.

Impeach Every Senator Who Votes for "U.S. is a Battlefield" Bill that Violates Basic Rights

Via III Percent Patriots
Stand up for the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the American People!

To every Senator who votes in favor of the $662 billion-dollar National Defense Authorization Act a.k.a. "U.S. is a Battlefield" bill, which gives the military a right to raid the homes of U.S. citizens and detain them indefinitely without charges, rights to a lawyer, or habeus corpus:

You are committing treason directly against the American people! We do not fear signing this petition, because if we live in fear, we will have lost. This is a way of peacefully standing up and saying we will not let a small group of politicians take away the rights and freedoms of 300,000,000+ people!

We the People are holding you accountable and saying, "We will not let this happen." This legislation goes directly against the U.S. Citizens Bill of Rights written by our Founding Fathers. It is the basis of the country and no one is allowed to dissolve these rights!

Americans, stand up for our country and what is right! Impeach every single Senator who votes to destroy the Constitution!

Social Services take Emma West's children (Tram Lady)

Via Sarah Maid of Albion

Verbatim Post

paulgolding2_120_x_145So far, hundreds of British patriots have sent concerned letters of complaint to the Home Secretary Theresa May over the disgraceful incarceration of the ‘outspoken’ young English mum Emma West…thank you.

We have since learned that since the infamous ‘incident’ on the tram in Croydon, and subsequent to her arrest by the race relations Gestapo, Miss West has had her two young children taken off her by the intrusive and all-powerful social services!

Put this in context: a women mouths off on a tram and she has her kids ripped away from her and she is flung in prison, but a feral hooligan loots and destroys Croydon and gets a slap on the wrist and let off...the injustice is outrageous, don’t you think?

It seems that making politically incorrect statements is regarded by the political elite as a far more grievous crime than looting, rioting and destroying the fabric of our nation!

As part of our campaign to free Emma West, Britain First has called a snap demonstration for tomorrow outside HMP Bronzefield at 12 mid-day.

The demo will be led by our National Coordinator Andy McBride, who has urged all concerned patriots to attend.

Miss West has been victimized by the political elite and the PC traitors who have brought this country and our people to their knees. No wonder Miss West ‘snapped’.

It is time for every true British patriot to take a stand and demand justice!

This young English woman – who was pushed over the edge on a multicultural tram – has been remanded in jail on the pretence of ‘protecting her’ due to several threats against her life.

Compare this with the treatment of the Islamic fanatics who were bailed after being charged with public order offences that occurred during their despicable homecoming demos against our troops.

Many of these traitors and jihadists were given around the clock police protection due to them receiving ‘death threats’ – nothing demonstrates the tangible anti-British/white/Christian bias spewing forth from the corrupt political elite traitors who would see this country and its people ground into the dirt .

It’s time to leave party affiliations, egos and petty differences aside and stand shoulder to shoulder.

If we fail to do so in such an obvious and justified cause then how can we ever hope to rally our people into action in the future.

Like Emma, we have all had enough and we call on all and every true, decent nationalist – man and woman alike – to join us outside the prison to show this victimized lady our support and to cry with one voice: WE WANT OUR COUNTRY BACK!

Please assemble tomorrow at 12 mid-day at HMP Bronzefield, Woodthorpe Road, Ashford, Middlesex, TW15 3JZ - top of the lane at the entrance.

The Great Global Warming Fizzle

How do religions die? Generally they don't, which probably explains why there's so little literature on the subject. Zoroastrianism, for instance, lost many of its sacred texts when Alexander sacked Persepolis in 330 B.C., and most Zoroastrians converted to Islam over 1,000 years ago. Yet today old Zoroaster still counts as many as 210,000 followers, including 11,000 in the U.S. Christopher Hitchens might say you can't kill what wasn't there to begin with.

Still, Zeus and Apollo are no longer with us, and neither are Odin and Thor. Among the secular gods, Marx is mostly dead and Freud is totally so. Something did away with them, and it's worth asking what.

Consider the case of global warming, another system of doomsaying prophecy and faith in things unseen.

As with religion, it is presided over by a caste of spectacularly unattractive people pretending to an obscure form of knowledge that promises to make the seas retreat and the winds abate. As with religion, it comes with an elaborate list of virtues, vices and indulgences. As with religion, its claims are often non-falsifiable, hence the convenience of the term "climate change" when thermometers don't oblige the expected trend lines. As with religion, it is harsh toward skeptics, heretics and other "deniers." And as with religion, it is susceptible to the earthly temptations of money, power, politics, arrogance and deceit.

This week, the conclave of global warming's cardinals are meeting in Durban, South Africa, for their 17th conference in as many years. The idea is to come up with a successor to the Kyoto Protocol, which is set to expire next year, and to require rich countries to pony up $100 billion a year to help poor countries cope with the alleged effects of climate change. This is said to be essential because in 2017 global warming becomes "catastrophic and irreversible," according to a recent report by the International Energy Agency.

Yet a funny thing happened on the way to the climate apocalypse. Namely, the financial apocalypse.


Russia delivers anti-ship missiles to Syria

Missiles that "allow coverage of entire Syrian coastline" reportedly delivered in accordance with 2007 contract.

Russia has delivered anti-ship cruise missiles to Syria, the Interfax news agency cited an unnamed military source as saying on Thursday, days after a United Nations commission of inquiry called for an arms embargo on Damascus.

Economic and diplomatic pressure has isolated Syrian President Bashar Assad following a nine-month government crackdown against protesters in unrest the United Nations says has killed more than 4,000 people.

Moscow has spoken out against further sanctions imposed by Western and Arab League states, and it has defended its right to sell Syria weapons -- tens of millions of dollars worth last year.

"The contract was completely fulfilled, almost ahead of time," Interfax cited the source as saying of the deal, estimated at $300 million. The source did not say when the deliveries had taken place.

Fooling the People: Putting Americans Last in the Job Line

Mike Scruggs

I have been pleasantly surprised that immigration issues have frequently made their way into recent presidential debates. For many years, there was a tendency to suppress even the mention of immigration issues in political debates. I have been disappointed, however, on the overall quality of the debate. Candidate responses to immigration questions have often been shallow and evasive. The shallowness reflects a serious failure to acknowledge and study the mounting problems of out-of-control immigration. The evasiveness reflects a disquieting avoidance of the candor necessary to fix the problem with prudent solutions. It is disappointing to see that several candidates do not seem to grasp the extraordinary imprudence of amnesty (by whatever name) and its likely impact on the economy, jobs, government spending, and the credibility of U.S. laws. Many do not seem to understand that amnesty invariably causes more illegal immigration. Judging by the 1987 amnesty, a new amnesty for 11 million illegal immigrants will bring another 30 million illegals within a decade, and the eventual cost could run into trillions of dollars.

Immigration is such a politically sensitive topic that many voters are intimidated from even asking questions about it. They may even falsely disclaim much interest in the subject. I have often heard people say that they are more interested in jobs, the economy, and taxes than immigration issues. This reflects an astonishing ignorance of the role that misguided immigration policies and blatant refusal to enforce our immigration laws have played in reducing job opportunities and wages for American workers. The economics of it are simple—flooding the labor market with cheap foreign labor displaces American workers and drives down their wages and standard of living. This is not very visible to the media and the business and governing elite, who do not have to bear the pain, but it is costing the economy several hundred billion dollars per year. In human terms, it is hurting millions of American families and destroying their hope for the future. The fiscal costs of providing education, healthcare, welfare, and other public services associated with illegal immigration alone are costing taxpayers more than $100 billion per year.

It is disappointing to hear candidates wax on about balancing law and compassion in immigration policies without a hint of understanding that besides an absolute necessity to preserve the credibility of lawful government, sound immigration policy must primarily be about protecting American jobs and incomes as well as providing for national security and public safety. To some, compassion for illegal immigrants seems to far outweigh compassion for American workers, families, and taxpayers.

One of the demagogueries applauded by the audience at a recent debate was a proposal to give automatic work visas to all foreign science graduates! It is widely believed that there is a shortage of science and technology workers in the US. For years, well-funded industry associations and lobbyists have been selling this falsehood to a compliant media eager to pass on their propaganda to the public. Yet more than 300,000 American computer scientists and engineers are unemployed. Just before the 2008 recession, the Sloan Foundation testified to the U.S. House Subcommittee on Technology and Innovation that industry lobbyists’ claims of shortages in science and engineering personnel blatantly ignored a substantial body of evidence to the contrary. They have not ceased in this claim despite a recent Rand Corporation study that showed a crisis of surplus in science and technology workers—as 300,000 unemployed engineers surely indicate. But the Rand Corporation and the Sloan Foundation do not fund Congressional election campaigns, while industry associations and lobbyists do.

The American people, however, are beginning to catch on. A recent Washington Post poll indicated that 59 percent of American adults disagree that work visas should be increased for foreign workers with advanced degrees in math science and engineering. Only 32 percent agreed.

At the lower end of the employment scale, the self-serving propaganda that “illegal immigrants are only doing the work Americans won’t do” has also been discredited. Candidates should be asked how we can justify giving legal status to 8.1 million illegal workers when 13.9 million American workers are unemployed and another 8.9 million are on involuntary part-time work status. The country needs more jobs—not more foreign workers.

In the last debate, one candidate claimed that giving illegal immigrants permanent legal status was not amnesty unless they received a path to citizenship. Tell that to unemployed Americans! Here is a rule of thumb to cut through the deception on amnesty: if they don’t have to go home, it is amnesty.

One candidate believes making most illegal immigrants legal can solve the problem of illegal immigration. Just hand them a Red Card as a permanent work visa. The so- called “Red Card” plan allows U.S. employers to order whatever employees they need from foreign employment agencies that screen the applicants and issue them a Red Card.

This would be an unconscionable disregard for American workers and their families.

Another debate trick to justify amnesty was an emotional appeal using an unrepresentative and theoretical anecdotal case to illicit sympathy from the viewing public—like an illegal immigrant who has been here 25 years, has obeyed all laws (except for immigration laws), and “goes to church every Sunday.” Well, I suppose going to church every Sunday does qualify anyone for amnesty, but I just wonder whose social security number they were using all that time.

A common immigration debate trick is the false dilemma—insisting that the choice is between amnesty and rounding up millions of immigrants and shipping them home. Nobody outside of madhouse is proposing the latter. Simply enforcing immigration laws at the workplace causes illegal immigrants to self-deport. It is working in Alabama, where the unemployment rate dropped 0.5 percent after only one month.

Stop Extensive Federal Land Grab

The National Security and Federal Lands Protection Act, H.R. 1505, is an extensive land-grabbing bill by the federal government in the name of “national security.” The proposal gives the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and specifically the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency, which is under the DHS, authority over a 100-mile inland swath of land across the northern and southern borders of the United States “for purposes that assist in securing the border (including access to maintain and construct roads, construct a fence, use vehicles to patrol, and set up monitoring equipment).”

This bill waives some 36 laws currently in place for lands managed by the USDA and the Department of the Interior, some environmental, some farmland preservation, others that cover Native American Indian lands, monuments, etc., while giving sweeping powers to the DHS and Border Patrol to exercise “operational control” on the specified lands. A decades-old law that allows the courts to review executive branch agencies’ activities would also be waived; DHS and CBP’s activities would be unaccountable and untouchable.

Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah) who introduced the bill insists that environmental laws are getting in the way of the Border Patrol’s ability to do its job. The Government Accountability Office did a year-long study to determine whether or not land management laws were hampering the Border Patrol. The findings showed that 22 out of 26 border patrol stations reported “the overall security status of their jurisdiction is not affected by land management laws. Instead, factors such as the remoteness and ruggedness of the terrain have the greatest effect on their ability to achieve operational control."

It needs to be noted that in March of 2006, an agreement was signed between the DHS, Department of the Interior and the USDA that already gives the Border Patrol access to public lands, either when they request it OR when they are in hot pursuit of suspected illegals, terrorists, drug smugglers, or for search and rescue missions.

The signed memo -- Cooperative National Security and Counterterrorism Efforts on Federal Lands Along the United States’ Borders -- gives the Border Patrol all the tools they need to keep the borders safe, including access to all the public lands currently managed by the USDA and the DoI, the ability to erect surveillance equipment, sensors, cameras etc. Conflicts between the three are supposed to be settled at the lowest authority level possible, while allowing CBP to protect the border. Everything that is contained in the mutual agreement is also in the proposed legislation, but the legislation goes much further.

Centralizing this kind of unilateral power in the hands of armed government agents should be frightening. Furthermore, imagine the kinds of activities that could be restricted or eliminated on public lands in the name of national security: timber harvesting, livestock grazing, hiking, hunting, fishing, camping, oil and gas exploration and drilling, etc. All of this could happen under such a broad bill, and one that is completely unnecessary.

If Congress and the DHS were serious about patrolling the borders, they could put into effect some serious efforts AT THE BORDER, not up to 100 miles inland. Concern for real national security, individual state sovereignty, and protection of private property should inspire us to contact our Senators and Representative and get them to oppose H.R. 1505, the latest federal land grab.

Senate Approves Bill that Legalizes Bestiality in U.S. Military

Via Cousin Joel
The Senate on Thursday evening voted 93-7 to approve a defense authorization bill that includes a provision which not only repeals the military law on sodomy, it also repeals the military ban on sex with animals--or bestiality.

On Nov. 15, the Senate Armed Services Committee had unanimously approved S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act, which includes a provision to repeal Article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).

Article 125 of the UCMJ makes it illegal to engage in both sodomy with humans and sex with animals.


Clark Gable’s Secret Daughter Dies

Via Jeanie, Belle Grove
Judy Lewis, the secret daughter of screen stars Clark Gable and Loretta Young, has died at 76. But her fascinating story lives on.

Lewis was conceived while Young was unwed and Gable was married to his second wife, Maria Langham. The two were filming "The Call of the Wild." Their affair resulted in a super secret pregnancy and a hush-hush birth. The actress left her love child at an orphanage for 19 months, returning only then to adopt her. Clearly, this was long before the Internet, DNA testing, or baby daddies.

To add to the mystery, Young kept her daughter in the dark about her family history. Born on November 6, 1935, Judy was eventually raised by her mother and Young's husband, Tom Lewis, whose last name she took. Lewis never did have a relationship with her biological father, although when she was 15, Gable visited her without telling her why. It took 31 years for her to learn the truth, which her mother told her privately but would not admit to publicly.

As Lewis told the Philadelphia Inquirer in 1994, when she finally wrote a memoir of her parents' romance and subsequent cover-up: "It was very difficult for me as a little girl not to be accepted ... by my mother, who to this day will not publicly acknowledge that I am her biological child."
