Comment on What Went Wrong with America?

Via Jeffery



Lt. Greyman said...

Let me give a few examples to show the reasons things went downhill.

Let's take The Boy Scouts for example. Let's ridicule it and force homosexuals into it, even though not one parent is going to want a homosexual taking little boys out into the woods and sleeping in a tent with them. Organization crashes.

Let's take the Episcopal Church. Let's criticize it, call it homophobic! Let's fill it with Homosexual priests who don't believe in the religion, but in a political system called Marxism. Organization crashes.

Let's fill the Country with 30 or 40 million illegal aliens that take job away from citizens and vote increasingly Socialist. Now those citizens have to have both mother and father work just to have a home they own and a retirement. Let's tax mom and Dad to the point that they never get ahead and are supporting the 30 or 40 million illegals with food stamps, ETB, Health Care, Section 8, AFDC, on and on.

Now let's add another 30 or 40 million African-Americans. No Wait, that's not enough! Let's fly in millions more from Somalia, Nigeria, Uganda and drop them in, Illinois, Wyoming, etc.

Now let's fill the land with laws and regulation so that people of average I.Q. could never start or run a business. Let's make sure they can't hire the people they want, but people the government wants them to hire. Now let's make their competition be able to import cheap labor from overseas on H1B visa's like Bill Gates and Amazon.

Finally, let's kill family farms with EPA regulations, Endangered Species Act regulations like the Spotted Owl fiasco and the destruction of Tree Farms in the Northwest or the Central Vally in California or Alar (Europe still uses Alar).

I could go on and on with inflation and how it kills the elderly (fixed income plus inflation and other government interference means steak this year, ground beef in five years, Cat food in 10 years.) or sending manufacturing overseas, but you get the point by now.

Common Core?

........ Common Core has been one of the most “non-transparent” initiatives foisted upon American citizens.

The standards are the work of a joint effort by political elites, corporatists, and progressive nonprofits who were able to get 45 state boards of education to adopt them – sight unseen – and without any proof of their acclaimed “rigor.” Not one person who supports the Common Core knows whether the standards will actually achieve what they claim because they have not been tested or proven in any way.

The real academic standards experts – such as Drs. Sandra Stotsky and James Milgram – were invited to be members of the Common Core Validation Committee but were then sworn to secrecy about committee meetings and, ultimately, ignored. While experienced educators like Stotsky and Milgram were invited to serve as nothing more than “window dressing,” the standards themselves were written by individuals who never taught a math or English class.

 Stotsky, who is credited with developing one of the nation’s strongest sets of K-12 academic standards in Massachusetts, told Breitbart News in January, “Everyone was willing to believe that the Common Core standards are ‘rigorous,’ ‘competitive,’ ‘internationally benchmarked,’ and ‘research-based.’ They are not.”

Why Aren’t All Flight Safety Videos This Awesome?



Sports Illustrated swimsuit models Jessica Gomes, Chrissy Teigen, Hannah Davis and Ariel Meredith lay out the flight safety rules for Air New Zealand. Since this video is also meant to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Edition, they’ve even incorporated the legendary Christie Brinkley, who is looking pretty darn good at 60 years old (thanks to Chuck Norris and the Total Gym).

Rep. Louie Gohmert: Boehner out by next January

 http://beta.congress.gov/img/member/112_rp_tx_1_gohmert_louie.jpg

One of the tea-party leaders in Congress believes the days of Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, as speaker of the House of Representatives are numbered.

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, told WND he predicts Boehner will no longer be speaker “by next January,” regardless of the outcome of the midterm election in November.

The Texan doesn’t think it will take a coup to remove Boehner, believing the tide is already moving in that direction, and saying, “I think people are ready for a change.”

And Gohmert would see that as a change for the better, because, he says, “We’ve got to have someone who is smart enough to realize” it was (Sen. Majority Leader) Harry Reid (D-Nev.) who shut down the government, not the GOP.

In addition to predicting the downfall of Boehner as speaker, Gohmert also told WND:
    He believes the majority of GOP voters have tea-party values

    He approves of GOP primary challenges to establishment incumbents by conservatives

    He suspects the establishment GOP is at war with the tea party because of “fear”

    He feels it is realistic to believe a tea-party candidate could win the presidency

Texas police double as Mahmoudberg's militia

Exclusive: Pamela Geller examines law-enforcement connection to U.S. terror compound

The jihad terror-trainings compounds in the U.S., a news story I first broke back in 2007, are growing. And now I have obtained exclusive information showing that one of them has placed members on local police forces, ensuring that nothing is done to stop or even monitor their activities.

PJ Media reported, “Federal Bureau of Investigations documents detailing a 22-site network of terrorist training villages sprawled across the United States. According to the documents, the FBI has been concerned about these facilities for about 12 years, but cannot act against them because the U.S. State Department has not yet declared that their umbrella group, MOA [Muslims of the Americas]/Jamaat ul-Fuqra, as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.”

The Texas compound is called “Mahmoudberg,” located in south Texas’ Brazoria County on County Road 3 near the town of Sweeny, which has a population of about 4,000. Jamaat ul-Fuqra was the jihad terrorist organization that murdered journalist Daniel Pearl – he had gone to try to interview its leader. According to an informed source, one of Pearl’s murderers now lives at Mahmoudberg.

Where Have all the Flower (Children) Gone?

Avenida Panteon

That silence you hear issues from the media/celebrity axis regarding the massive protests in Venezuela where hip college kids are being beaten, tear-gassed and shot down in a manner to shame anything done by Mayor Daley’s police in 1968 or the Ohio National Guard in 1970. Six Venezuelan youths are confirmed dead and hundreds have been injured and/or arrested.
 
Forget looking in the mainstream media for the nitty-gritty of this communist repression. The Venezuelan regime —under the (literal!) and expert tutelage of their Cuban colonial overlords--is easily censoring the sheeplike mainstream media. The truth is getting out through social media.

Please don’t miss these dramatic videos.

 But these are Communist police and National Guardsmen doing the beating, gassing and shooting, you see. Hence the silence. Worse still, these Venezuelan storm-troopers are “practiced at the art of repression” thanks to hands-on training by the best in the business: Castro’s police.

Voter wearing pro-gun shirt turned away in Texas


Chris Driskill is a staunch supporter of the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. But this week he found out that his pro-gun support cannot be proudly proclaimed on his clothing if he wants to cast a ballot at the Waller County Courthouse or any other Texas voting location.

Driskill, employed as a private security guard in Houston, went to the Waller County Courthouse in Hempstead on Tuesday to cast his early-voting ballot in the Republican Primary. He was wearing a black T-shirt with a logo on the front and back that says “2nd Amendment – America’s Original Homeland Security.” The words circle a skull and crossbones where the “bones” are short-barrel pistol grip shotguns.

"I heard a gentleman's voice over my shoulder say ‘he can't vote with that shirt on. You'll have to either turn it inside out our you'll have to leave,’” Driskill said of the polling place encounter.
Driskill says he thought maybe the polling place staff was either anti-gun, liberal, or over-reacting.

"I didn't quite understand it at first,” he said. "I was thinking they just didn't like something about the 2nd Amendment."

Retired Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin: Forget the sword; Jesus will return with an AR-15

A former Army general believes that when Jesus returns, he’s gonna be packin’ heat.

Retired Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin, now the Family Research Council’s executive vice president, says the Son of God will be armed with an AR-15 assault rifle when he returns, in a speech at the Pro-Family Legislators Conference in Dallas.

“[Jesus is] coming back as a warrior, carrying a sword,” Boykin said. “And I believe now, I’ve checked this out — I believe that sword he’ll be carryin’ when he comes back is an AR-15.”

Many in the audience laughed and some applauded, according to audio of the speech released Tuesday.

The Most Outstanding Combat Pilot Of All Time


Hans-Ulrich Rudel

Hans Rudel is not the kind of "Panzer Ace" such as Wittmann or Barkmann, simply because he was "Stuka Ace" and destroyed enemy armored fighting vehicles from the air. During his career, as Stuka pilot he managed to destroy enormous number of enemy equipment, including 519 Soviet tanks. 

Hans-Ulrich Rudel was born in 1916 in Silesia.He was the son of a clergyman - minister. He was never good at school and received limited education. Rudel was a teenager when the NSDAP took charge and became indoctrinated at very early age.Since young age, Rudel showed interest in sports and did not do well in school. 

In 1936, he joined the Luftwaffe as an cadet officer as a way to continue and develop his sporting activities. After passing his flying training course and becoming a pilot, Hans Rudel applied for further training in the technique of the dive-bombing but was turned down. 

Instead, he received reconnaissance observer's training and flew long range reconnaissance missions during Polish Campaign in September of 1939 as a Lieutenant. 

On October 11th of 1939, Rudel was awarded Iron Cross 2nd Class.At the same, Rudel continued applying for Ju-87 Stuka (Sturzkampfflugzeug - dive bomber)training course and was finally admitted in May of 1940. After the completion of the course, Oberleutnant Rudel was posted to Stuka Training Wing near Stuttgart, where he spent the French Campaign. Afterwards, Rudel was transferred to 1st Staffel (1st Squadron) of Stukageschwader 2 (Dive-Bomber Group 2) and took part in the airborne invasion of Crete in May of 1941, although not in the battle zone. 

In preparations for the Operation Barbarossa, Rudel's Group was transferred to the Eastern Front and on June 23rd of 1941 at 3:00am flew his first combat dive-bombing mission. 

During next 18 hours, he flew total four combat missions. On July 18th of 1941, Rudel was awarded Iron Cross 1st Class.

******************************************


After the war, Rudel became a close friend and confidante of the Argentine president Juan Perón Rudel wrote a book titled In Spite of Everything, and a book of memoirs called Stuka Pilot that supported the German invasion of the Soviet Union. Even without a leg, he remained an active sportsman, playing tennis, skiing, and even climbing the highest peak in the Americas, Aconcagua (6,962 meters or 22,841 feet). He also ascended the second highest volcano on Earth three times, the Llullay-Yacu in the Argentine Andes (6,739 meters or 22,109 feet). In addition, Rudel's input was used during the development of the A-10 ground attack aircraft. 

Rudel returned to West Germany in 1953 and joined the German Reich Party. He became a successful businessman in post-war Germany. He died in Rosenheim in 1982, and was buried in Dornhausen.
In 1976 Rudel was involved in what came to be known as the Rudel Scandal. Two high ranking Bundeswehr generals, Karl Heinz Franke and Walter Krupinski, were forced into early retirement.
Rudel was a teetotaler and non-smoker. His fellow pilots coined the phrase "Hans-Ulrich Rudel, ...er trinkt nur Sprudel!" ("Hans-Ulrich Rudel, ... he drinks only mineral water!").
