Obama is boring? That is exactly what he wants

Via WRSA

 

..........one and only one second-term agenda for this president:

  There is nothing that will sidetrack him and the rest of the party from this goal.

  Increasing unemployment won't, nor North Korean nuclear tests, nor a weakening dollar, nor anything else.

  ... to eliminate political and economic competition to himself first and the Democrat party second. There is no other Obama agenda. Not jobs, not economic growth, not anything.

  Emplacing permanent one-party rule in this country is the sole goal for term 2.

That is what he is really doing, very energetically, while we grow tired of paying attention to him.

**********************************************
 
There's an old saying, "Develop a reputation as an early riser and you can sleep until noon with impunity." 

Obama wants you to stop paying attention. He wants to be thought of broadly by the public as out of touch, somewhat irrelevant, ineffective and unworthy of close attention. Then he simply intensifies his destructive economic agenda and hazardous foreign policy with little public oversight. That way people are less likely to take political notice of things like this:

Statism is turning America into Detroit – Ayn Rand's Starnesville come to life

Via Angry Mike

 

Interesting in that Dixie and I just finished this part of Atlas Shrugged.

Look at this description of Detroit from today’s Observer:
What isn’t dumped is stolen. Factories and homes have largely been stripped of anything of value, so thieves now target cars’ catalytic converters. Illiteracy runs at around 47%; half the adults in some areas are unemployed. In many neighbourhoods, the only sign of activity is a slow trudge to the liquor store.
Now have a look at the uncannily prophetic description of Starnesville, a Mid-Western town in Ayn Rand’s dystopian novel, Atlas Shrugged. Starnesville had been home to the great Twentieth Century Motor Company, but declined as a result of socialism:
A few houses still stood within the skeleton of what had once been an industrial town. Everything that could move, had moved away; but some human beings had remained. The empty structures were vertical rubble; they had been eaten, not by time, but by men: boards torn out at random, missing patches of roofs, holes left in gutted cellars. It looked as if blind hands had seized whatever fitted the need of the moment, with no concept of remaining in existence the next morning. The inhabited houses were scattered at random among the ruins; the smoke of their chimneys was the only movement visible in town. A shell of concrete, which had been a schoolhouse, stood on the outskirts; it looked like a skull, with the empty sockets of glassless windows, with a few strands of hair still clinging to it, in the shape of broken wires.
Beyond the town, on a distant hill, stood the factory of the Twentieth Century Motor Company. Its walls, roof lines and smokestacks looked trim, impregnable like a fortress. It would have seemed intact but for a silver water tank: the water tank was tipped sidewise.
They saw no trace of a road to the factory in the tangled miles of trees and hillsides. They drove to the door of the first house in sight that showed a feeble signal of rising smoke. The door was open. An old woman came shuffling out at the sound of the motor. She was bent and swollen, barefooted, dressed in a garment of flour sacking. She looked at the car without astonishment, without curiosity; it was the blank stare of a being who had lost the capacity to feel anything but exhaustion.
“Can you tell me the way to the factory?” asked Rearden.
The woman did not answer at once; she looked as if she would be unable to speak English. “What factory?” she asked.
Rearden pointed. “That one.”
“It’s closed.”
Now here’s the really extraordinary thing. When Ayn Rand published those words in 1957, Detroit was, on most measures, the city with the highest per capita GDP in the United States.

(Excellent) HSLDA: Does the Common Core have a philosophical bias?

 https://www.hslda.org/hpslideshow/ConLaw_Fall2013_b.jpg

The philosophy of any educational program can manifest itself in either its overall construct or the details of the curriculum—sometimes both. The most important features of the philosophy of the Common Core are revealed by observing its fundamental orientation rather than parsing the details of mathematics and language learning objectives.

Professor Charles Glenn of Boston University writes with keen insight into the goals of centralized education schemes:
How can the pluralism that we claim to value, the liberty that we prize, be reconciled with a “state pedagogy” designed to serve state purposes? Is there not wisdom in John Stuart Mill's remark that “all that has been said of the importance of individuality of character, and diversity of opinions and modes of conduct, involves, as of the same unspeakable importance diversity of education. A general state education is a mere contrivance for molding people to be exactly like one another…in proportion as it is efficient and successful, it establishes a despotism over the mind.1
Three threads of philosophy weave through the Common Core—statism, moral relativism, and progressivism, which are revealed both by what is proclaimed and what is omitted. The statist goals of the Common Core are implicit in the lockstep uniformity that is the central thesis of the program.

All children in all states will learn the same content in the same manner so that the children may become useful workers. Traditionally, education has been premised on the notion that all education of value is designed to know truth that only can be fully known in God. The omission of the pursuit of truth as a core goal of the Common Core demonstrates its alliance with the dominant philosophy of modern education that there are neither absolute truths nor absolute values. Finally, we see progressivism in the view that all that is new is inherently superior to that which comes from prior generations of human knowledge.

The obvious influence of progressivism and relativism in the structure and goals of the Common Core reveals a view of education that is contrary to the desires of parents and educators who have chosen to pursue homeschooling, private schooling, and other forms of educational choice.

The story of progressivism in education begins with John Dewey.

Republican Traitors

Below is the list of 8 Republican traitors working to help Obama grant Amnesty to 12-20 million illegal aliens who will eventually form a new voting bloc, paralyzing any future border or immigration law enforcement.

The "illegals" (yes we are calling them what they are), are expected to vote Democrat 8 to 1 according to Pew Research. While some Democrats will enjoy this at first, their smiles will quickly fade as they too are buried beneath the next waves. This amnesty will clear the way for the next wave of 10-20 million illegal aliens combined with unprecedented levels of "legal" immigration, and add approximately 50 million new mouths to feed into America from abroad in the first 10-15 years!

Just picture 1 extra person for each 5 you see this week and you will get the picture.

What is worse is that many of these turncoats have campaigned on promises to oppose Amnesty.

Call them, write them, email them, visit them in their offices, and confront them at open meetings!

Re: Civil Disobedience, Edward J. Snowden, and the Constitution

Dear Mr. President:

You are acutely aware that the history of liberty is a history of civil disobedience to unjust laws or practices. As Edmund Burke sermonized, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

Civil disobedience is not the first, but the last option. Henry David Thoreau wrote with profound restraint in Civil Disobedience: “If the injustice is part of the necessary friction of the machine of government, let it go, let it go: perchance it will wear smooth certainly the machine will wear out. If the injustice has a spring, or a pulley, or a rope, or a crank, exclusively for itself, then perhaps you may consider whether the remedy will not be worse than the evil; but if it is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law. Let your life be a counter friction to stop the machine.”

Thoreau’s moral philosophy found expression during the Nuremburg trials in which “following orders” was rejected as a defense. Indeed, military law requires disobedience to clearly illegal orders.
A dark chapter in America’s World War II history would not have been written if the then United States Attorney General had resigned rather than participate in racist concentration camps imprisoning 120,000 Japanese American citizens and resident aliens.

Civil disobedience to the Fugitive Slave Act and Jim Crow laws provoked the end of slavery and the modern civil rights revolution.

We submit that Edward J. Snowden’s disclosures of dragnet surveillance of Americans under § 215 of the Patriot Act, § 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Amendments, or otherwise were sanctioned by Thoreau’s time-honored moral philosophy and justifications for civil disobedience. 

Since 2005, Mr. Snowden had been employed by the intelligence community. He found himself complicit in secret, indiscriminate spying on millions of innocent citizens contrary to the spirit if not the letter of the First and Fourth Amendments and the transparency indispensable to self-government. Members of Congress entrusted with oversight remained silent or Delphic. Mr. Snowden confronted a choice between civic duty and passivity. He may have recalled the injunction of Martin Luther King, Jr.: “He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it.” Mr. Snowden chose duty. Your administration vindictively responded with a criminal complaint alleging violations of the Espionage Act.

From the commencement of your administration, your secrecy of the National Security Agency’s Orwellian surveillance programs had frustrated a national conversation over their legality, necessity, or morality. That secrecy (combined with congressional nonfeasance) provoked Edward’s disclosures, which sparked a national conversation which you have belatedly and cynically embraced. Legislation has been introduced in both the House of Representatives and Senate to curtail or terminate the NSA’s programs, and the American people are being educated to the public policy choices at hand. A commanding majority now voice concerns over the dragnet surveillance of Americans that Edward exposed and you concealed. It seems mystifying to us that you are prosecuting Edward for accomplishing what you have said urgently needed to be done!

The right to be left alone from government snooping–the most cherished right among civilized people—is the cornerstone of liberty. Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson served as Chief Prosecutor at Nuremburg. He came to learn of the dynamics of the Third Reich that crushed a free society, and which have lessons for the United States today.

Writing in Brinegar v. United States, Justice Jackson elaborated:

The Fourth Amendment states: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

These, I protest, are not mere second-class rights but belong in the catalog of indispensable freedoms. Among deprivations of rights, none is so effective in cowing a population, crushing the spirit of the individual and putting terror in every heart. Uncontrolled search and seizure is one of the first and most effective weapons in the arsenal of every arbitrary government. And one need only briefly to have dwelt and worked among a people possessed of many admirable qualities but deprived of these rights to know that the human personality deteriorates and dignity and self-reliance disappear where homes, persons and possessions are subject at any hour to unheralded search and seizure by the police.


We thus find your administration’s zeal to punish Mr. Snowden’s discharge of civic duty to protect democratic processes and to safeguard liberty to be unconscionable and indefensible.


We are also appalled at your administration’s scorn for due process, the rule of law, fairness, and the presumption of innocence as regards Edward.

On June 27, 2013, Mr. Fein wrote a letter to the Attorney General stating that Edward’s father was substantially convinced that he would return to the United States to confront the charges that have been lodged against him if three cornerstones of due process were guaranteed. The letter was not an ultimatum, but an invitation to discuss fair trial imperatives. The Attorney General has sneered at the overture with studied silence.

We thus suspect your administration wishes to avoid a trial because of constitutional doubts about application of the Espionage Act in these circumstances, and obligations to disclose to the public potentially embarrassing classified information under the Classified Information Procedures Act.
Your decision to force down a civilian airliner carrying Bolivian President Eva Morales in hopes of kidnapping Edward also does not inspire confidence that you are committed to providing him a fair trial. Neither does your refusal to remind the American people and prominent Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate like House Speaker John Boehner, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann,and Senator Dianne Feinstein that Edward enjoys a presumption of innocence. He should not be convicted before trial. Yet Speaker Boehner has denounced Edward as a “traitor.”

Ms. Pelosi has pontificated that Edward “did violate the law in terms of releasing those documents.” Ms. Bachmann has pronounced that, “This was not the act of a patriot; this was an act of a traitor.” 

And Ms. Feinstein has decreed that Edward was guilty of “treason,” which is defined in Article III of the Constitution as “levying war” against the United States, “or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.”

You have let those quadruple affronts to due process pass unrebuked, while you have disparaged Edward as a “hacker” to cast aspersion on his motivations and talents. Have you forgotten the Supreme Court’s gospel in Berger v. United States that the interests of the government “in a criminal prosecution is not that it shall win a case, but that justice shall be done?”

We also find reprehensible your administration’s Espionage Act prosecution of Edward for disclosures indistinguishable from those which routinely find their way into the public domain via your high level appointees for partisan political advantage. Classified details of your predator drone protocols, for instance, were shared with the New York Times with impunity to bolster your national security credentials. Justice Jackson observed in Railway Express Agency, Inc. v. New York: “The framers of the Constitution knew, and we should not forget today, that there is no more effective practical guaranty against arbitrary and unreasonable government than to require that the principles of law which officials would impose upon a minority must be imposed generally.”

In light of the circumstances amplified above, we urge you to order the Attorney General to move to dismiss the outstanding criminal complaint against Edward, and to support legislation to remedy the NSA surveillance abuses he revealed. Such presidential directives would mark your finest constitutional and moral hour.

Sincerely,
Bruce Fein

Cook County sheriff’s team taking guns if FOID card is revoked

 On Tuesday Cook County Sheriff officers visit home known resident whose FOID card have been revoked they have been attempting

A new Cook County Sheriff’s team is crisscrossing the suburbs to seize guns from thousands of people whose Firearm Owner’s Identification Cards have been revoked.

More than 3,000 people in Cook County have failed to surrender their revoked FOID cards to the state. Sheriff Tom Dart said he thinks many of them continue to possess firearms.

The Chicago Police Department conducts regular missions to recover revoked FOID cards and seize guns from the holders, but there wasn’t a concerted effort to do that in Cook County’s suburbs, Dart said.
“The system is broken,” the sheriff said. “The system revokes cards, but the guns


Barry Soetoro (aka Barack Obama) Disappears From DC Voter Registration Site Following Exposure By Bloggers

 http://cdn.freedomoutpost.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/072013_1443_BOMBSHELLBa1.jpg

Almost two weeks ago, we reported that Barry Soetoro, an alias of Barack Hussein Obama, was registered to vote in Washington, D.C. Granted, many think this was a hoax and someone other than Obama registered Barry Soetoro in DC. We knew at the time that Barack Obama was registered in Chicago, Illinois and did vote there in 2008 and 2012. However, after the information about Barry Soetoro being registered to vote in Washington, DC, the DC Board of Elections has scrubbed the voter registration for Barry Soetoro with no explanation.

If you recall, we provided the image of the District of Columbia Board of Elections search of Barry Soetoro, which you can see below dated July 20, 2013. Notice he was registered 22 days before the 2012 elections.

Report: No. 2 Official at IRS Commutes to Work . . . By Plane

first_landing

A handful of top executives at the Internal Revenue Service ran up “extremely high travel expenses” in 2011 and 2012, acording to a new report from Treasury Department inspector general J. Russell George.

The report indicates that these executives work primarily in Washington, D.C., but live elsewhere, and fly to Washington routinely. In 2011 and 2012, twelve IRS executives spent over 200 days traveling each year; in some cases, the number of travel days they logged actually exceeded the number of business days in the calendar because they remained in “travel status” on weekends and holidays.

An IRS source tells National Review Online at least two of the executives commuting to D.C. by plane work at the highest echelons of the agency.

State Official Waited 20 Hours on Benghazi Roof for Help

The night of the Benghazi attack last September 11, Diplomatic Security agent David Ubben waited for 20 hours on the roof of the CIA Annex until help finally arrived.

He was up there with former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, who were killed by mortar rounds. Ubben’s right leg was shredded.

Have a look at this incredible report by of Catherine Herridge of Fox News.

“The response on the night was inadequate on many levels,” sources told her. Ubben has been recovering in the United States since then, and lawmakers are hopeful he will testify in the fall.

Boehner's Failure to Acknowledge Massive Document Fraud and Identity Theft Leads to Bad Policy

Via Mike

http://ramparts360.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/illegal-aliens-vote-democrat.jpg

During an appearance on "Face the Nation", House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told Bob Schieffer, "We have a problem with 11 million people who are here without documents."

Unfortunately, this means that the Speaker is developing public policy based on an erroneous premise because, as I wrote in 2009:

Illegal immigrants are not "undocumented". They have fraudulent documents such as counterfeit Social Security cards, forged drivers licenses, fake "green cards", and phony birth certificates. Experts suggest that approximately 75 percent of working-age illegal aliens use fraudulent Social Security cards to obtain employment.
Of course, Boehner is not the only politician who ignores this situation. And perhaps he has to ignore these job-related felonies in order to provide illegal aliens with immediate legalization and a path to citizenship.

After all, Boehner and the other advocates of comprehensive immigration reform simply cannot openly acknowledge massive illegal alien-driven document fraud and identity theft since it would destroy the image of the good, hard-working, honest illegal alien. And

Obama Ho Chi Minh comment echoes KGB 'disinformation'


Ho Chi Minh: The Man & The Myth
.........the victorious communists massacred some 2 million people in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. Another million tried to escape by sea, but many died in the attempt.”

When President Obama said Ho Chi Minh – the North Vietnamese communist revolutionary who led the war effort against the U.S. that cost almost 60,000 American lives – was a fan of the U.S. Constitution and Thomas Jefferson, he was echoing what an influential new book calls one of the most deadly communist disinformation campaigns in American history.

During a White House meeting with Vietnam’s President Truong Tan Sang last Thursday, Obama said he and Sang “discussed the fact that Ho Chi Minh was actually inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson.”

Not exactly. Historians agree Ho Chi Minh was neither an admirer of America’s Constitution nor a fan of this nation’s founders. In reality, as one-time Marxist and now conservative scholar and Cold War expert Ronald Radosh detailed in the Wall Street Journal, the North Vietnamese leader was cynically feigning admiration toward America’s founders in hopes of flattering and thereby seducing the U.S. into financially backing him after World War II, so he could assume control over North Vietnam. The U.S. at the time didn’t fall for the ruse.

Thus, writes Radosh: “One can imagine the wily Ho Chi Minh laughing from his grave. Once upon a time, antiwar activists in America called him ‘the George Washington of Vietnam.’ Now the U.S. president is taking a similar line.”

Obama’s surprising pronouncement, praising the leader against whom America’s soldiers fought during the Vietnam War, is right in sync with Soviet KGB “disinformation campaigns” of the past, created specifically to paint America in a bad light and its enemies in a good one.

In “Disinformation,” a new book by former communist spymaster Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa and co-author Ronald Rychlak, the authors reveal various disinformation campaigns that until now have been largely unknown to the West.

FL Sheriff to Local NAACP President: I Cannot Support Your Agenda

 

Lee County, Florida Sheriff Mike Scott sent a letter to Lee County Branch NAACP president James Muwakkil explaining his disdain for the way he believes the NAACP ignores "epidemic" black-on-black violence in certain parts of Florida while allegedly trying to recast the Trayvon Martin shooting as white vs. black violence to score political points.

Sheriff Scott was invited to the NAACP's "Freedom Fund Awards Banquet" and was even asked to sponsor the event financially, but as he made clear in his July 16 letter, "[he] will not be doing either." Regarding the lack of NAACP response to black-on-black violence, Scott writes:
Record numbers of young, black males have been gunned down in Ft. Myers in an epidemic of alarming proportions over the last few years. In virtually every instance the killer was also black and the majority of those cases remain open... To date I am unaware of any appreciable attention or public outcry the NAACP locally or nationally have afforded these issues in our own, proverbial backyard.
Scott then turned his attention to the Zimmerman trial: "Conversely, you immediately inserted yourself and the Lee County Branch in the matter of Trayvon Martin's tragic death in a city hours from ours and publicly declared the matter to have been mishandled by the police."

 Why Obama Wants to Destroy America. Obama Alinsky

We often hear of Liberals use of Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, and people discuss Alinsky’s organizing abilities. What they omit is his underlying philosophy. Alinsky built his organizing model on a love of creating hell.

Saul Alinsky interview in Playboy, 1972

ALINSKY: Hell would be heaven for me. All my life I’ve been with the have-nots. Over here, if you’re a have-not, you’re short of dough. If you’re a have-not in hell, you’re short of virtue. Once I get into hell, I’ll start organizing the have-nots over there.
 
PLAYBOY: Why them?
 
ALINSKY: They’re my kind of people.

The man who wrote what Liberals use as the definitive book on community organizing admits to having no virtue. So what he destroys communities, using his kind of people.

Take Hillary Clinton for example. Hillary loved Alinsky’s work so much that she actually wrote her senior thesis at Wellesley College on his work, his most notable being the bible of Liberalism: Rules for Radicals. Obama loved Hillary’s work so much, he made her Secretary of State, or what I like to call America’s Marketing Department. Why stop at America, when you can ruin the world.
Alinsky dedicated Rules for Radicals to Lucifer:

Brand Dixie


Southern Gentlemen and Ladies,

It has come to my attention that the North has begun to commit suicide through the faux president and his minions and policies designed to destroy not just the South, but the whole of America. I would like to propose that the South and anyone who would sympathize with the South, need not become a part of this national suicide. As history tells us that the will of the people will in fact prevail, it is my intention to prosecute a new Dixie that will turn away from the Political Machinations of Lincoln's failed Federalism and return to the soft, gentile South that our Grandmothers spoke of while sending us off to sleep.

We need not worry about failure as we can only fail ourselves in this endeavor. No guns will be slung and no bombs off the ramparts, but the South doing what we can do to do business with each other and make a pledge to ourselves and to each other on our sacred honor that we will do everything possible to trade only in Dixie and others from Dixie. While men of good honor agree to help each other, we can stand on the sidelines and watch as America's first black president becomes her last as a Republic. This being the case, the time is right to solidify the South as a cohesive unit working as one piston stroking with all it's energy to support one cause...Dixie. The time has come and the time is now.

Start to think, where should my dollars go that will secure the South from the coming storm? While the dollar is still good, keep it in Dixie, boycott the North and the Yankee infiltrators who have intentionally weakened our position in the world. Do business with Dixie, every dollar with every product produced and sold in the South. Those businesses will hire good Southern folk and pay them a living wage while the rest of the North goes directly to hell. This is the first step, as time moves on we will elect Southern Statesmen to be our representatives and throw out the Carpetbagging scoundrels who fill the vile hallways of Washington DC that claim to represent you and me.

I would have every Good Person who loves and lives in Dixie to be careful where they spend their dollars and make every spend count as a vote for Dixie, the one you've only heard about, the one you've read about in history books, the one in your genes and your heritage, the one you know somewhere deep in a cloudy dream. We can make that dream real, and make the South greater than we ever dreamed. We just all need to pull together. Seek them, find them, the ones who would blow life back in Dixie, the corner drugstore, the local hardware store, and yes the once powerful cotton mills now overrun by overseas slavers who pay peanuts for wages so they can farm their bloodstained cloth on our shores!

The Ultimate Irony, fight the South to free the Slaves (that's a lie) and buy our goods from overseas countries who uses slaves to pick their cotton.

Brand Dixie, we can have it, we can have it better than before.

Uvalda, GA demonstration against Southern demographic displacement - August 24


The League of the South and the Southern Nationalist Network would like to announce an upcoming demonstration against Southern demographic displacement in Uvalda, Georgia. 

The mayor of the town is Paul Bridges, an activist for Third World immigration and amnesty for illegal immigrants. He ran as a Republican and a conservative and snuck into office before his anti-Southern views on this all-important issue were discovered. Mayor Bridges has since taken his anti-Southern activism to the US media, the White House and sided with Leftist groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center and the American Civil Liberties Union in a law suit against the State of Georgia over its strict immigration law (which was over-turned by a Federal court). 

He is thankfully opposed by the town council, the police chief and most of the people in the local area. Information on this major Southern nationalist event can be found below. As of the time of the writing of this post we already have more than two dozen people coming and expect many more. 

Many leaders of the Southern nationalist movement, such as Dr Michael Hill (president of the League of The South), Ed Wolfe (chairman of the Georgia League of The South), Michael Tubbs (chairman of the Florida League of The South), Hunter Wallace (editor of Occidental Dissent) and others will be present. 

The police chief has expressed his support for the demonstration and asks that we bring as many people as possible. He assures us that the people of Uvalda do not support illegal immigration and amnesty and he believes that we will be warmly welcomed by the people of the community. 

After the Uvalda rally we will head to nearby Vidalia, Georgia (a much larger town), enjoy dinner together, demonstrate against Southern demographic displacement there and then retire for the afternoon. League members and friends and supporters will get together that evening for fun and socialisation!

The events that we have all seen in the past months have drawn my inquisitive nose over the great pond and into your part of the globe. And I must say, what I see happening is giving me the creeps.

I do see a significant discrepancy between what you people take for granted yet allow to be step by step taken away from you, and what life is really like here in Europe and the rest of the world. It amazes me how easily people in your country let go of the strings of liberty still in your grasp for a promise of the illusive security and prosperity. Well, sorry ladies and gentlemen, security is only as impenetrable as you make it for yourself, and prosperity only as lucrative as you make it grow with hard work. And it is the same everywhere in the world. The only difference is the amount of difficulties imposed by third parties that make achieving security and prosperity tougher.

As for now, you are all pretty much well off compared to some other parts of this planet. Most of you probably never experienced the strife of living under an oppressive dictatorship or an extremist regime, and the rest probably do not even give a damn about this topic whatsoever. Ignorance is the key to any man’s demise and, sorry to say this, most of you have reached master level in ignorance and I-do-not-give-a-damnism.

In the last 5 years or so, it seems the left has admitted defeat in a way. They no longer keep the pretense that they only care about opportunity. They care about equal outcome, and they seem to hint that they don't think blacks are capable of it on their own. That's what the "white privilege" talk is intimating.

 Hearing Holder, Sharpton, Jealous and others, one would think the great threat to black children today emanates from white vigilantes and white cops... Though blacks are outnumbered 5-to-1 in the population by whites, they commit eight times as many crimes against whites as the reverse. By those 2007 numbers, a black male was 40 times as likely to assault a white person as the reverse. If interracial crime is the ugliest manifestation of racism, what does this tell us about where racism really resides?

Secrecy laws - As long as the public knows about and agreed to the law, the thinking goes, it's okay for the government to build a secret surveillance architecture atop it. But the FISA court is, in effect, breaking the first link in that chain. The public no longer knows about the law itself, and most of Congress may not know, either. The courts have remade the law, but they've done so secretly, without public comment or review.

Why do you think Obammy is going stupid crazy with his assault against the citizens? The mandatory DNA data base on all civilians disguised as an HIV test. The spying from every quarter. The ammunition buy-ups and noise against guns. The people are being stirred up to revolt, because a revolt solves all the problems of widespread unprofitable troop deployment, a necessarily devolving deep sea navy, less oil to deploy the mass machinery and etcetera. The War Machine MUST continue, but it has to retract from its overreach.

If a black boy simply graduates from high school with a GPA that passes the laugh test, private colleges across the nation will beat down his door to recruit him. Public universities insist on the right to use equally blatant racial preferences to admit their own treasured store of underqualified black students. If that black undergraduate finishes college, elite employers and professional schools will zealously seek him out.

B29′s Attorney, David M Chico, ... was the State Prosecuting attorney in the 2005 Zimmerman case, and ABC knew but did not reveal to audience... The biggest question we have about the revelation is:  How attorney David Chico came to be in contact with the juror, B29. Did/Is ABC funding the relationship? ... she is all of a sudden able to afford an attorney 24/7 and together travel to New York? This attorney is coincidentally the former State prosecutor in the 2005 case against Zimmerman? And ABC just coincidentally molds the interview to present the story of B29 as a divisive racial issue? Uh-huh.

Connecting the dots - In 1946, Erma Henderson was a Michigan representative to the National Council of American Youth for Democracy – the youth wing of the Communist Party USA. Serving alongside Henderson was a young Chicago journalist named Vernon Jarrett. He in turn, was a close colleague of a Chicago Communist party writer named Frank Marshall Davis – later the Hawaii mentor of a teenage Barack Obama. Vernon Jarrett’s son would later marry the daughter of a Chicago radical educationalist named Barbara Bowman. The brief marriage turned Valerie Bowman into Valerie Jarrett – now Obama’s closest friend and most trusted White House adviser.

If one thinks that either party gives a crap about you or your family, ask your idiot representatives why Saudis do not have to apply for a visa to visit the U.S. now and why not one Saudi student who has vanished while here on a "student visa" has ever been sought out or deported but are able to get a fake ID and buy a gun; or worse.

 It's said the Republican Party platform is the Democratic Party platform from the previous generation. Things are speeding up. Formerly content to flush out resistance after the main parade had passed, Republicans are closing the gap. Think not? What Republican today would propose a reprise of Operation Wetback art-link-symbol-tiny-grey-arrow-only-rev01.gif? What Republican today would propose eliminating the Department of Education, and others, as Reagan did? John Kennedy would be rejected by today's Republicans as a right wing radical with no chance of being elected.

art-link-symbol-small-rev01.jpg All Americans except white liberals and black liberal plantation slaves are going to say to themselves: "I'm Done." As in, I've had it up to here with race politics and I'm not going to take it anymore. Call me a racist, call me a bigot. I don't give a damn. And really, how else was race politics going to end? Race politics is like a rat punching a button to get a reward. Every time you hit the button you get a reward. Why would you stop?, says Christopher Chantrill in this article, We're Done, Mr. President, at American Thinker.

art-link-symbol-small-rev01.jpg The cities that have the largest margin for error—such as Washington, DC and New York City—that have most aggressively squeezed out poor African Americans. The long-run reality is simply that poor blacks, who are our fellow American citizens and who comprise an integral part of our national history, will continue to be a hot potato that white regional elites will hand off to more na├»ve parts of the country, says Steve Sailer in this article, Occam's Butter Knife, at Taki's Magazine.

 art-link-symbol-small-rev01.jpg Voting can not be construed as consent to the overall condition of subjection to the state because ballots do not contain a referendum on that situation. They merely represent a choice among various referenda and candidates regarding the implementation of that coercion, says Spencer Morgan in this article, Should a Liberty Advocate Vote?, at Everything Voluntary

Helen Thomas dead at 92 - Satan welcomes the bitch home today as she has finally passed away. She was in a word, evil incarnate with her anti-Semitic views and openly expressed anti-capitalist beliefs. What is a loss for American liberalism is a gain for hell.
