Stupidity, Cowardice, and Dishonesty Have Consequences

Boehner's Deceptive Immigration Scheme

         Trading Our Country for Special Interest Campaign Money and Liberal Media Favor

On Thursday, January 30, Republican U.S. House leaders endorsed a document entitled "Republican Standards for Immigration Reform" written by Becky Tallent, John Boehner's recently hired Immigration Liaison and Gang of Eight member John McCain's former chief of staff and manager of his earlier amnesty push with Ted Kennedy. The document endorsed the concept of granting legal status but "no special path to citizenship" for illegal aliens. It stipulated that it is in the national interest to allow people in the United States illegally to "get right with the law" without fear of deportation." It also endorses massive new legal immigration.

 Its callous disregard for American workers, taxpayers, and families, many of whom are suffering unemployment, reduced hours, reduced income, and reduced healthcare coverage,  is absolutely astonishing. It may make the liberal media happy and may swell the profits of corporations that make extensive use of cheap illegal and relatively cheap legal foreign labor, but it demonstrates the accumulating moral blindness that destroys even the greatest of nations and empires. It is a poisoned chalice that would first destroy the Republican Party and then the nation.

 No one with any common sense and knowledge of American politics believes that the passage of legislation granting legal status to illegal immigrants but denying them a path to citizenship will last longer than the Democrat Party can write sob-story legislation giving the newly legalized immigrants a path to citizenship. This proposal will only result in legalization, which most sensible Republicans do not want anyway, followed almost immediately by an emotional appeal for "corrective" legislation to give them a path to citizenship. As such, it is completely dishonest.  It is also clearly cheap-labor special interest legislation that will devastate the economic well being of American workers, taxpayers and their families. According to Heritage Foundation data, the  fiscal cost would still be about $6.3 Trillion, probably more, since the implementation time would certainly be moved up. Yet this fiscal outrage is only half of what the special interest employers of illegal immigrant workers demand. They want to bring in another 30 million foreign workers in the span of a decade, threatening American jobs and driving down the wages and benefits of American workers.

NONE OF THIS IS IN THE NATIONAL INTEREST!!!  It is for special interest campaign money that this gang of cheap-labor special interest pawns are betraying the vast majority of Republican voters and the nation. We can be sure that these powerful commercial and media interests are straining every nerve and financial and media resource to elect or re-elect their pawns and obscure their ruthless disregard for American workers, American families, and American heritage. Follow the money!

Probably 80 to 85 percent of Republicans in the U.S. House are loyal to conservative principles and have the intellectual confidence and courage to withstand liberal media and special interest corruption. But the remaining 15 to 20 percent are in a position to betray the vast majority of Republican and conservative voters and the common good by surrendering to special interest campaign money and the favor of liberal media. Combined with the near uniform radical leftist insanity and Obama idolatry that now dominates the Democrat Party in every region, the stupidity, cowardice, and corruption of a large enough Republican minority could destroy the nation and any reasonable possibility of political, social, or economic recovery.
Unfortunately, the present Republican leadership in Congress and the RNC has been drawn from the most liberal, most analytically negligent, and most special interest corrupted 15 percent. That relatively small but powerful minority is making the whole Republican Party look spineless and without principle to its normally most devoted constituents.

A February 2013 Backgrounder Report by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) gave strong indications that Republicans would gain no immigrant voters by voting for any form of "legalization," i. e.  amnesty, but a large part of their conservative constituency would not turn out to vote for a party or candidates whose leadership is obviously looking out for special interests rather than their interests or the overall good of the country. What would be left of the once center-right Republican Party would be quickly overwhelmed by growing rolls of big government oriented new voters, who are also considerably less socially conservative than claimed by special interest advocates of open-door immigration. An August 2001 CIS report indicated the same result. Amnesty is Republican suicide.

 The Boehner gang's immigration principles are a direct insult to the conservative base of the party. They are also stupid, cowardly, and appallingly dishonest. If passed, the tidal wave of new big-government voters would destroy the Republican Party, leaving the Democrat Party in permanent control of every issue: Constitutional, fiscal, economic, social, and moral.  National security, public safety, education, and foreign policies would be governed by leftist Democrat ideology. The Second Amendment and every amendment and article of the Constitution would become meaningless history. Life, liberty, and property would be at the discretion of secularist ideologues hostile to Judeo-Christian religion, values, and worldviews.

Furthermore, what good is any agreement with Obama? Is it not yet abundantly clear that Obama's only real principle is the advancement of his own agenda? He evidences no respect for law, truth, or previous promises. Legislative history also indicates that conservative Republicans have little warrant for trusting the promises of Democrat leaders Reed, Schumer, and Pelosi.

 Republicans have a great opportunity to trounce the Democrats in 2014 and 2016, but our Republican leaders in Washington are making proposals that will destroy the Republican Party.  Not many people follow a white surrender flag with enthusiasm.

Even worse, this shameless attempt to hoodwink the Republican base by Boehner and his special-interest-money enslaved leadership team is provoking massive grass roots antagonism toward the National Republican Party. If continued, it will result in massive conservative desertion.

 We need a dramatic change in Republican leadership in Congress and the RNC, and it is too urgent to wait until after the 2014 election or even the primaries.

Greed and the lust for power and privilege are vices that narrow and distort our perception, deaden both the heart and the intellect, and quench moral courage. It is time to drive the money-changers out of the temple of liberty lest liberty be destroyed.

Here are a few only slightly altered lines from a Scottish protest song from about 1707 that seem especially appropriate to American  conservatives today.

OKAY, NOW YOU CAN PANIC: Harvard Economist Withdraws All of His Money from Bank of America

Via Ninety Miles From Tyranny

Terry Burnham, former Harvard economics professor, author of “Mean Genes” and “Mean Markets and Lizard Brains,” provocative poster on this page and long-time critic of the Federal Reserve, argues that the Fed’s efforts to strengthen America’s banks have perversely weakened them.

Last week I had over $1,000,000 in a checking account at Bank of America. Next week, I will have $10,000.

Why am I getting in line to take my money out of Bank of America? Because of Ben Bernanke and Janet Yellen, who officially begins her term as chairwoman on Feb. 1.

Before I explain, let me disclose that I have been a stopped clock of criticism of the Federal Reserve for half a decade. That’s because I believe that when the Fed intervenes in markets, it has two effects — both negative. First, it decreases overall wealth by distorting markets and causing bad investment decisions. Second, the members of the Fed become reverse Robin Hoods as they take from the poor (and unsophisticated) investors and give to the rich (and politically connected). These effects have been noticed; a Gallup poll taken in the last few days reports that only the richest Americans support the Fed.

Police Strip Search Woman in Public for Having Expired Registration

Strip searches seem to be on the rise in this country. They don’t even have to suspect that you’re hiding something “criminal” like a gun or drugs. If you have a suspended registration, or you’re a trucker driving in the left lane, that’s all some police need to perform a strip search on you in public in the middle of the day for all the other drivers to see.

USS Barb SS-220: The Sub That Sank a Train

Roundabout via Sister Anne

 USS Barb

In 1973 an Italian submarine named Enrique Tazzoli was sold for a paltry $100,000 as scrap metal.

The submarine, given to the Italian Navy in 1953 was actually an incredible veteran of World War II service with a heritage that never should have passed so unnoticed into the graveyards of the metal recyclers. 

The U.S.S. Barb was a pioneer, paving the way for the first submarine launched missiles and flying a battle flag unlike that of any other ship. In addition to the Medal of Honor ribbon at the top of the flag identifying the heroism of its captain, Commander Eugene "Lucky" Fluckey, the bottom border of the flag bore the image of a Japanese locomotive. The U.S.S. Barb was indeed, the submarine that "SANK A TRAIN".

NC: A Conversation with Sesquicentennial Commission Chairman, Bernhard Thuersam of Wilmington

Q:  This is the last full year of the Sesquicentennial Observance, what new efforts and activities will we see in North Carolina in 2014?

A:  Being a volunteer and private-donation based organization we are planning and doing what our many supporters and researchers suggest and participate in – and this should be a very active year.  More pertinent and informative topics presented on the website, and some interesting living histories touring the State and featuring “Generals in Conversation.’

Q:  By the way, your organization is the War Between the States Sesquicentennial Commission, not the North Carolina Civil War Sesquicentennial, is this correct?

A:  Yes, the civil war-titled group is with the State government.  They seem to do a good job with a chronological listing of battles and such during the war while is a view of that conflict from a North Carolinian perspective, and I think we take a deeper and more philosophical approach to the sectional war, why it occurred and why it was not avoided. 

Q: Why avoid the common “Civil War” moniker?  Is this not the most accurate name?

A:  We are historians and see nothing admirable in continuing to use an incorrect and confusing term for the war, and prefer what North Carolinians called the conflict in the postwar. “Civil war” is a Northern term which followed the previous incorrect term referring to the war as one of rebellion.  North Carolina was not involved in gaining control of the Washington government in 1861 and hence no “civil war”; nor did it “rebel” against anything.  It voluntarily withdrew from the 1787 union as it had withdrawn from the Articles of Confederation; remember the State voluntarily joined the 1787 union and had no withdrawal been mentioned then, there would have been no union.  One has to use language accurately. 

Q: Do you see the war as a Lost Cause on the part of the South, and North Carolina?

A:  Of course.  Keep in mind the cause that was lost was of maintaining constitutional government against usurpation of power.  In that sense it was lost, and recall Lord Acton’s grieving more about what was lost at Appomattox than what was gained at Waterloo.  We lost the 1787 republic of the Founders’ and still live in a consolidated union that was never intended.

Also, there is a fixation on the part of some revisionist historians today on a so-called “Myth of the Lost Cause” and how Southerners in the postwar had the nerve to rationalize their defeat and commemorate their losses and dead heroes. These limited-vision scholars need to take a look at what the North did in the same period in their towns and cities as they erected a Myth of Saving the Union. It is an easy task to reveal this mythology and that the Founders’ union was destroyed beyond recognition. 

Q:  Your topics run the gamut and highlight what seem to be overlooked questions. The very impressive bibliography directs your visitors to further investigation of the topics.

A:  Indeed, and most of our topics have been suggested by our Commission members who I am proud to say are private citizens, and many of them fine historians in their own right.  As a Commission we wanted to tell the story of North Carolinians in this tragic conflict, why they fought, what they did, and what they thought of what they were doing – and through the eyes of them then – not our assumptions or often mistaken views of today. We highly recommend books written on the war before the 1960s cultural revolution in this country, though there are many recent ones that we recommend.

I believe, and we have gotten many good comments about this, that the varied topics of the website make people think about the many issues swirling about when it comes to that war.  There of course was no single issue which caused the war and those who read through our webpages will gain a wide-ranging view of not just how the war came about and how North Carolina responded, but also causes them to think very deeply about why the war came about in the first place – and why was it not avoided. 

Q:  Many books on the war say that Sherman did not devastate this State as he did others. Was he easier on North Carolina?

A:  This is hard to understand as there is much literature regarding his harsh treatment after crossing into North Carolina. One of our most recent pages is Sherman and Total War – it is not only a compilation of his brutality and writings regarding his view of total war, but also scholarly reflection on what this man had unleashed upon the American people in the South, and how it opened the way for more cruelty in Cuba, and the two World Wars.  As to Sherman in North Carolina, see:  

This I think is one of the most productive ways to understand the human condition and recourse to war and its brutality, and better understand this WBTS and its effect upon America after 1865.  Well-known author Tom DiLorenzo recently wrote on the question of Hitler being deeply influenced by Sherman’s treatment of Americans in the South, and the Plains Indians after the war.  I have also found a young Spanish attaché with Sherman during his march, Valeriano Weyler, who eventually rose to general by the mid-1890s and was sent to Cuba where he brutally suppressed the independence-minded revolutionaries.  The obvious question is where did he learn his scorched-earth strategy and war against noncombatants?

Q:  Interesting. You indicated a new page discussing a “Myth of Saving the Union.” The common knowledge is that Lincoln did save the Union, so how is this a myth?

A:  Right, that is the common knowledge but is it true?  That is the question we explore, the mythology erected by the North during and after the war – and it of course continues to this day. Dr. Clyde Wilson has spoke often about the greatly untilled ground of Northern history, and that we need a serious and unbiased inquiry into that section’s history – warts and all – leading up to the war and afterward.  What was saved was a territorial union of States held together by force, and this new reality was not lost on Northerners who then realized the trap they were in as well.  They now had to accept unconditionally any dictates from Washington which now had the large standing army the Founders’ feared so greatly. 

It is a mistake as well to assume that the conqueror, in this case, can devastate, desolate and depopulate the Southern section of the country, replace their elected governments with military despotisms and political opportunists from the North, and expect those subjugated to be now-loyal citizens of the republic of Washington and Jefferson.  There was no saving the union – it is pure mythology.  See:
Q:  The website contains several references to New England actually being responsible for slavery in this country, as well as its perpetuation. Can you elaborate? 

A:  What is hard to believe is that this has been suppressed for so long.  In fact, Providence, Rhode Island was the slave-trading capital of North America by 1750, with Liverpool firms complaining to the Crown about their inability to find qualified shipwrights locally due to Providence companies luring them overseas for higher pay. 

What we also find is not only a strong involvement in the African slave trade and keeping slaves themselves in New England, but also the near extermination of the Pequot Tribe violently resisting Puritan encroachment into their territory and the enslavement of the Pequot survivors – who were then sent to the West Indies as chattel.

Southerners would then rightly wonder about the New Englander’s past actions of supplying the South with slaves and demanding slave-produced cotton for their busy mills in Massachusetts; then theses New Englanders rediscover their moral compass in the 1830s and embrace radical abolitionism with the demand of immediate freedom of those they themselves had enslaved.  Another irony and sad fact is that these New Englanders never advanced a practical and peaceful solution to the slavery they seemed to abhor, and which could have avoided the war we are talking about. 

Q: We are familiar with one or two conferences in which peace between North and South were discussed.  This certainly would have saved lives. You cover this on your site?

A:  Yes, we already have the “Washington Peace Conference” page online and a more extensive “Peace Conferences to End the War” page is coming.  This is derived from a Powerpoint program I have presented across the State during the Sesquicentennial.  There were at least six peace conferences before and during the war, the first being the Crittenden Compromise debates which, had the Republicans been compromise-minded, would have avoided war.   

What emerges from our research is a strong and unmistakable pattern of outright obfuscation and refusal by Northern politicians and leaders to effect any and all compromise with legitimate Southern grievances.  This of course increased the possibility of political secession as Southern leaders saw no manner in which they could continue in a fraternal political union with those who would only have their way.  Up to the last conference at Hampton Roads, Lincoln would entertain no peaceful solution that did not include the unconditional surrender of the American Confederacy, and renouncing all that they had embraced toward self-government.  Lincoln and the Republicans wanted all – and after Appomattox the South received subjugation, something that was probable if they had accepted Northern-dictated peace in 183 or 1864.  The Republican party was intent on war and would have no compromise.

Imagine if there was negotiation, compromise and . . . the same that allowed the American political union to exist in the first place – and war was avoided – thus saving the lives of a million people, a South not devastated by war, ruin and desolation, and the Constitution intact.  This brings to the forefront James Buchanan’s last days in office and an obvious question as to why this former minister to England and skilled diplomat did not forcefully promote negotiation and settle the controversy peacefully.  Our website visitors are left with many “whys,” and reasons to investigate these topics further on their own.  See:
Q:  What seems to be a very sensitive topic on your site is about treason against North Carolina.

A:  Yes, it is sensitive for some reason but we tackled it nonetheless since it reverberates today.   Before the War the US Constitution addressed treason against the “United States,” meaning against the individual States, and this continued under the Confederate States Constitution, and North Carolina amended its own Constitution in 1861 by addressing treason against the State.  Remember that John Brown was tried on a charge of treason against Virginia, found guilty, and was hung for the crime.  That said, we look critically at those who went over to the enemy by spying or fighting against our State, what that meant then, and perhaps we can better understand what that means today in light of Al-Qaeda and Homeland Security.  Please see:
Q:  Thank you for speaking with us today, it seems the past can teach us much about ourselves and our country today.

A:  You are very welcome, I look forward to more discussion like these.  Please continue to visit as we continually update.

Grass-Roots Conservatives Outraise Establishment in Battle for GOP

Via avordvet


Grass-roots groups seeking a conservative Republican Party are raking in more money than establishment GOP organizations in what is shaping up as a big-bucks struggle for control of the party’s future amid the looming mid-term elections.

Powerful groups, such as Karl Rove's Crossroads, are this year having trouble raising the same kind of cash they brought in during the 2012 elections, The New York Times reports.

Crossroads spent more than $300 million trying to oust President Barack Obama and win the Senate, but failed in both efforts, and donors are turning elsewhere in hopes of returning Republicans to Washington.

Rove's three Crossroads organizations raised just $6.1 million last year, 98 percent less than in 2012, Politico reports.

The Tea Party Patriots, meanwhile, are raising record amounts of money, attracting donors angry about compromises incumbent GOP lawmakers have made in recent years over federal spending.

Mark Sanford gives almost 30 percent of office budget back to government

 Former Gov. Mark Sanford. William Thomas Cain/Getty Images.

South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford says he has returned almost 30 percent of his annual office budget back to the federal government in the spirit of fiscal conservatism.

The Republican congressman and former governor said his office returned$231,140.30 — 28.8 percent  — of the taxpayer dollars budgeted for him to spend on a congressional office and staff in 2013.

“I have long believed that those in government need to spend taxpayer dollars as they would spend their own, both carefully and deliberately,” Sanford said in a statement. “Too often in government there is a distance between what a bureaucrat might spend money on and what a taxpayer would.”

How about a 50% crash?


For a long time, we have been hearing that the stock market is headed for a significant crash. Is 2014 the year?

Back in 2011, some Elliott Wave aficionados were telling us that the crash was on its way. Since that time, there has been a tendency to stop listening to those who have been crowing about the next financial crisis since before we even recovered from the last financial crisis. 

But during the past few weeks, we have been receiving warnings from outside the usual "gloom and doom" sphere. Most notably, bond guru Jeffrey Gundlach gave a webcast presentation on Jan. 14, which raised more than a few eyebrows. Gundlach explained that as the Federal Reserve proceeds to taper its monthly bond purchases, stock market volatility will escalate. He considered the record-high margin-debt levels on the New York Stock Exchange as a signal of a stock market "top."

Remembering the Armenian Genocide: Islam’s Holy War Against Christianity Turkey 1894-1923 Part 2 of a Series

Mike Scruggs

In 1915 the Turkish government ordered a far more organized genocide of the Armenians. In a period of two years, about 1.5 million Christians were killed. Johannes Lepsius, a missionary who visited the area during the First World War, reported that 549 villages were laid waste and the surviving inhabitants forcibly converted to Islam. He reported that 568 churches were destroyed and 282 churches were converted into mosques. A total of 21 protestant pastors and 170 Gregorian (Armenian) priests were subjected to unspeakable tortures before being murdered for refusing to denounce their faith and accept Islam.

In the summer of 1915, Leslie Davis, the American Consul in Harput, tried to save as many Armenians as possible by hiding them in the consulate building. He soon ran out of room and had to put some in the consulate’s walled garden. At night the consulate employees could hear the Turks praying for Allah to bless them in their efforts to kill the Christians. Outside, they carried on their bloody work. The leaders in these atrocities were primarily Muslim clerics and theology students.

To promote the idea of Jihad, the Sheikh-ul-Islam, the most senior Sunni Muslim religious leader in Turkey, published a pamphlet with these words:

“Oh Muslims, ye who are smitten with happiness are on the verge of sacrificing your life and your good for the cause of right…He who kills one unbeliever of those who rule over us, whether he does it secretly or in the open, shall be rewarded by Allah.”

Note the words “of those who rule over us” turn upside down the actual status of the victims. Anyone who rejects Islam is considered to be an oppressor.

The Jihad against Christians was renewed in 1922. Perhaps the last brutal act was in the western Turkish city of Smyrna (now Izmir), one of the seven towns mentioned in the book of Revelation. The inhabitants were surrounded by the Turkish Army and systematically murdered. More than 150,000 died in four days of slaughter. The city was then burned to the ground. Allied British, French and American naval vessels were anchored in the city’s port, and their crews could hear the desperate cries of Smyrna’s Christians for rescue. To our eternal shame, they had been ordered not to interfere. The years of 1922 and 1923 claimed the lives of another one million Armenian and Greek Christians. Several hundred thousand were eventually able to make it to safety in Britain and the United States, and only about 100,000 remain in Turkey.

Despite massive photographic and documental evidence and substantial personal testimonies, the Turkish government has never acknowledged its genocide of approximately 2.75 million Christians from 1894 to 1923. The victims included Armenian, Greek, and Protestant believers.

Jihad occurs everywhere Islam encounters other cultures. In the Sudan, the Muslim regime is waging a bloody war against Christians, who are mostly concentrated in the southern part of the country. Thus far, two million Sudanese Christians have been killed, and five million have been displaced and are facing rampant disease and possible starvation. Former Secretary of State Colin Powell has said :

“There is no greater tragedy on the face of the earth than the tragedy that is unfolding in the Sudan.”

Meanwhile, Muslim terrorists are killing tens of thousands in the Philippines, Nigeria, Indonesia, the Indian Kashmir, and wherever Islam has established a beachhead in non-Muslim countries. Over 100,000 Muslims have died in an Islamic-sectarian civil war in Algeria. Once majority-Christian Lebanon is being destroyed as Muslim immigration and Hezbollah infiltration threaten renewed civil war there. The world is ablaze with Muslim Jihad.

Yet most prominent European and American politicians continue to insist that Islam is “a religion of peace and tolerance” that has been hijacked by a small group of radicals.

“Some call this evil Islamic radicalism; others, militant jihadism; still others, Islamo-facism. Whatever we choose to call the enemy, we must recognize that this ideology is very different from the tenets of the great religion of Islam.”

–George W. Bush, November 14, 2005

“We honor the universal values that are embodied in Islam—love of family and community, mutual respect, the power of education, and the deepest yearning of all: to live in peace. Values that can bring people of every faith and culture together, strengthen us as people, and I would argue, strengthen the United States as a nation.”

--Hillary Clinton, January 21, 1999

In December 2011, just nine months before the murder of the American ambassador to Libya and three American staff members in Benghazi, Hillary Clinton, acting on the desires of President Obama, was conspiring with the 56-nation-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to make “Islamophobia” or criticism of Islam a United Nations hate crime enforceable and punishable in the United States and other Western countries. This plan would have been more salable in the U.S., if the murder of American officials could have been blamed on an anti-Muslim video rather than an embarrassing resurgence of al-Qaeda terrorism.

As to President Obama, this quote from should suffice:

“Obama has repeatedly attacked traditional Christianity, and he has a very long history of anti-Christian actions. In public speeches he has repeatedly cast doubt on the Bible, he has repeatedly stated that he does not believe that Jesus is necessary for salvation, and he has consistently said that all ‘people of faith’ believe in the same God.”

How is it that so many of our leaders are blind to the true nature of Islam, clearly taught in the Koran, the teachings of Muhammad, and clearly seen in history and current events? Too many of them reject scholarly Christian counsel and base their knowledge of Islam on the Muslim Brotherhood financed propaganda of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the delusional politically correct advice of liberal academics. American infatuation with multiculturalism and Islam is the path to national calamity.

Who is Valerie Jarrett?

Valerie Bowman Jarrett was born on November 14, 1956 in Shiraz, Iran to African-American parents James E. Bowman and Barbara Taylor Bowman.

Her father, a pathologist and geneticist, ran a hospital for children in Shiraz in 1956, as part of a program where American physicians and agricultural experts sought to help communtize developing countries’ health and farming efforts. When she was five, the family moved to London for one year, later moving to Chicago’s Hyde Park in 1963.

Jarrett went to the exclusive University of Chicago Lab School before transferring to her mother’s alma mater, Northfield Mount Hermon (NMH), for the last two years of high school. NMH is a private coed boarding school on 1,565 acres of wooded campus bordering the Connecticut River in Western Massachusetts. Jarrett graduated from NMH in 1974.

Valerie attended Stanford as an undergrad, living at the African American themed Ujamaa House and earning a B.A. in psychology in 1978. She went on to get a Juris Doctor (J.D.) from the University of Michigan Law School in 1981.

After graduating from law school, Jarrett hired on as an associate at Ballard, Shepard and Pole Ltd. and spent 1981 through 1984 with the firm.
