In America today most people choose their favorite brand of the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel based on the charisma of the news reader, and don’t waste their time tuning into other news options.

What are the criteria for their choice of a news outlet? Does the news reader look or sound authoritative?  Are they better looking?  Do they have a more pleasing voice?  Are they a Male?  Are they a female? Are they Gay? Are we not sure?  Whatever the reason, it isn’t because they say anything different.  It often sounds like they all have the same writers and story selectors.  The content is no different.

Do you want to hear the story about how the Republican Elite is trying to figure out some way to dump Trump before or after you hear the story about how The Donald is not fit for the highest office in the land or after?  Do you want to learn about the latest polls that show everyone hates Trump before or after you hear how Trump the Traitor colluded with the Russians before or after you hear about the insane proposals of the racist homophobe misogynist Trump?  Perhaps the line-up of the stories is slightly changed from one news clone to another but that’s about it.

When I have a chance encounter and what passes for conversation with so many Kool-Aid drinking low information voters i.e progressive induhviduals the conversation usually goes like this:

Me: What do you think about _______ (fill in the blank)?

Progressive Induhvidual: Repeat what ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, PBS, NPR, the New York Times, the Washington Post, USA Today, the Chicago Tribune, etc. has said recently stated as if this was their independently arrived at personal opinion.

Or if they are a Conservative Induhvidual: Repeat what Fox, the Wall Street Journal, the Weekly Standard, National Review, etc. has recently said.

It’s almost impossible to find anyone who has actually read any books on topics of importance such as economics, politics, sociology, or the History that ties them all together.

Several times a year I attend meetings that are filled with nothing but PhDs, professors, and university administrators.  All content experts in these very subjects as well as many others.  The results are basically the same.  The death of critical thinking has led to a deafening silence in the area of actual personal opinion, a dearth of dialogue, and a collapse of conversation.  The American people, who at the time of the Founding saw blacksmiths discussing with candle makers the pros and cons of constitutions and the meaning of liberty or carpenters debating with plumbers the need for a free economy versus the need for public works.  Just read the Federalist and the Anti-Federalist Papers, look at the level of thought and speech and ask yourself, “How do the public debate, and newspaper articles of contemporary America match up?”  Today the public debate takes place at about a 3rd grade level compared to the graduate school of those earlier days.

What happened?  Back then there weren’t public schools.  Churches and families educated their own.  Today after generations of highly funded and severely structured public education we’ve successfully dumbed ourselves down to the lowest common denominator.

Look at the late great Bernie Sanders revolt which was contained by the elite in the Democrat Party and the Trump Revolution which overwhelmed the elite in the Republican Party it’s obvious that we tax paying entities who inhabit flyover country whether of the right or left have had enough of the bi-coastal elite that’s driving us over the cliff into the third world.  Since their empty pantsuit blew the election and she can’t carry the water for the donor class all the way to the bank obviously the elite controlled media has dropped their camouflage of objectivity and is all in to make sure Trump is destroyed.

At least there was one pseudo surprise in the Hollywood scripted replay of Primary Colors the Distaff Edition.  After all of the frothing at the mouth Bernie supporters did.  After they were so brave that they booed or turned their backs at the Democrat Party Spectacle in Philadelphia on their anointed queen.  Low and behold their fearless leader fell into line and surprise surprise supported the mistress of manipulation.  Then just as evidence surfaced that yes, the entire primary exercise was rigged from the beginning the mind-numb robots of the left who chanted and cheered for Bernie stood in line to cast their rationally considered and highly principled vote for the very person who engineered the fix, takes her money and marching orders from the crony capitalists, and is arguably the most corrupt person to ever run for the presidency.  After the election, Bernie, the man of the people bought his third house and settled in a well feathered bed until next time he’s needed to attack his fellow millionaires and billionaires..

Who could have seen this coming except a blind man in a dark room with no media access?

The pre-programmed electorate combined with the usual fraud, imported voters and all the dead people who never leave the voting rolls of the corrupt Democrat City fiefdoms, marched in lockstep to the polls to hand America lock-stock-and-barrel to the Clinton Crime Family.

However the November Miracle happened and instead of the Sleazy Don following the totally corrupt Donna back into the White House the Donald won.

Enough people swallowed the red pill and were willing to at least take a shot at shaking things up before we’re swept away by the unregulated immigration invasion and state sponsored outsourcing that low and behold we didn’t end up with another perpetually re-elected hack.

An old saying goes, “There are only two things that are certain in this life, death and taxes.”  We’ve all been programmed to accept this as an inevitable truism.  Death to be sure is natural and inevitable.  If you were born you’ll die.  Taxes however aren’t a natural thing.  They’re in actuality the forced expropriation of funds from the productive taken through the use of the state’s monopoly on the use of coercive force.  And so, though they aren’t natural and they aren’t inevitable like death or gravity they may in realistic terms given the overwhelming preponderance of government power be unavoidable.

Our country refused to follow the dictates of the elite controlled media. America refused to become the turf of the Sleazy Donna from Chappaqua whose word parsing motto should be the Bart Simpson anthem, “I didn’t do it! Nobody saw me do it! You can’t prove anything.”  We chose not to let the White House once again become Bill’s love nest.  We refused to let the George Soros puppet in heels moves into the Oval Office with her rolodex of contributors both foreign and domestic.

So what do we have now?  The Cartel and the politicians that follow them around like a children’s pull toy on a string are screeching day and night the Russians!  The Russians!  They have Comey’s BFF installed as the Special Counsel because of Comey’s leaks.  The stage is set for a sequel to the Progressives favorite thriller, “The Witch Hunt of Watergate.”

Ding Dong the Witch is politically dead!  But is this like when a queen dies?  The Witch is politically dead long live the witch.  Waiting in the wings is everyone’s favorite Caucasian Indian from Massachusetts.

What’s a freedom loving constitutionalist to do?  How about every time the Progressives issue a subpoena for one of the President’s followers we issue one for a Debbie Wasserman Schultz, or her Pakistani IT money launderer, or Bill Clinton, or Loretta Lynch, or any of the shady characters who actually tried to fix the election.  How about a Special Counsel to investigate all the scandals of the Obummer nightmare, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Lois Lerner and the IRS, or the serial unmasking of American citizens for political purposes?  How about, “Lock her up!”

Why should we just roll over and take it?  Why not take it and roll on instead?  We won let’s act like it!

Maybe I’m speaking out of turn or maybe I should remember the ever growing list of questionable deaths that follows New York’s Sixth Crime Family around like a bad odor.  If we don’t stand up after the Miracle in November and demand that the swamp is drained when will it happen?  When Chelsea gets elected?

Today it’s Eurasia Tomorrow it’s Eastasia July 13, 2017

If you’ve never read George Orwell’s 1984 you might miss this reference.  It exposes the unreal reality show that’s called foreign relations by some and “The Great Game” by those who play it.  The USSR was Hitler’s mortal enemy until he signed a non-aggression pact which lasted until he invaded.

Today the show must go on and for the show to go on there must be a villain.  Enter the “NEW” Hitler.

The Media Cartel constantly pushes Russia forward as our enemy and their leader Vladimir Putin as the new Hitler.  We are told he constantly attacks freedom wherever it is found and that he is trying to re-create that failed socialist nightmare, the USSR.

What Putin says as opposed to what we’re told he says:

From his annual Christmas press conference in 2016 here are some excerpts of what our modern day Hitler had to say.

In a nearly four-hour question and answer session, the Russian president held forth on the state of his country and the world, saying that there is an international push for a New World Order that will “remove national sovereignty” and “destroy identity and of God-created diversity.” 

To reach this goal, Putin states that Western elites have begun rejecting the roots that their society was built on.

Many Western states have taken the way where they deny or reject their own roots, including their Christian roots which form the basis of Western civilization. In these countries, the moral basis and any traditional identity are being denied – national, religious, cultural and even gender identities are being denied or relativized.”

In these countries, the moral basis and any traditional identity are being denied – national, religious, cultural and even gender identities are being denied or relativized. There, politics treats a family with many children as equal to a homosexual partnership (juridically).

The excesses and exaggerations of political correctness in these countries indeed leads to serious consideration for the legitimization of parties that promote the propaganda of pedophilia.

“The people in many European states are actually ashamed of their religious affiliations and are indeed frightened to speak about them.”

Putin says that the situation has become so extreme in Western culture, that people are now taught that “Faith in God is equal to faith in Satan”. To say otherwise would be to risk being politically incorrect — the great crime of our age.

Christian holidays and celebrations are abolished or ‘neutrally’ renamed, as if one were ashamed of those Christian holidays. With this method one hides away the deeper moral values of these celebrations.

“And these countries try to force this model onto other countries, globally. I am deeply convinced that this is a direct way to the degradation and primitivization of culture. This leads to deeper demographic and moral crisis in the West. What can be a better evidence for the moral crisis of a human society (in the West) than the loss of its reproductive function?

Today nearly all ‘developed’ Western countries cannot survive reproductively, not even with the help of migrants.

Without the moral values that are rooted in Christianity and other world religions, without rules and moral values which have formed and been developed over millennia, people will inevitably lose their human dignity.”

Putin was unapologetic about Russia’s determination to defend Western values.

And we think it is right and natural to defend and preserve these moral (Christian) values.”

At the same time as this process at a national level in the West, we observe on an international level the attempts to create a unipolar, unified model of the world, to relativize and remove institutions of international right and national sovereignty. 

“In such a unified, unipolar world there is no place for sovereign states. Such a world needs merely vassals. 

“From a historical perspective, such a unipolar world would mean the surrender of one’s own identity and of God-created diversity.”

Does that sound like Hitler to you?  If it does perhaps you should re-read Mein Kampf because it doesn’t quite read the same to me.  Many of these are the same comments made by conservatives in America.  The multicultural politically correct progressives are leading the West down the primrose path to cultural destruction.

Instead of the moral fiber to stand up for and defend Western values and civilization we are offered the corrupt substitute of the Neocons, war.  We may have the most powerful armies and the most destructive weapons.  But are they being used to defend who we are.  Or are they being used to feather the nests of oligarchs and plutocrats who live in gated communities and will never be impacted by the mess they are making?

The Political/Military/Industrial/Media Complex always needs an enemy.  They must have a villain if they are to sell there shopworn tales to the gullible.  Today it’s Eurasia.  Tomorrow it’s Eastasia.  Yesterday it was Saddam.  Today it’s Putin.

Supporting what America stands for does not necessarily translate into blindly supporting who stands for America.

This is not an article promoting Vladimir Putin as anything besides what he is, the nationalistic leader of Russia.  It is an article pointing out that in many ways we are being sold a bill of goods.

There is turmoil in the Ukraine and Crimea has rejoined Russia not because the new Hitler invaded but because of American instigation of a coup against a democratically elected president and the installation of a handpicked replacement.  It is America and not Russia that is acting contrary to the accepted laws of the UN in Syria.  Russia is the ally of the UN recognized government.  The USA operates in contravention of the UN rules of engagement.

The Neocons and their army of Deep State Bureaucrats continue to plot, propagandize, and manipulate no matter who is in power.

We don’t need to be the straw man or the cat’s paw for any backroom gang of ideologues.   What we need is what we voted for, “America First!’ and “Make America Great Again!”  Let’s not get sidetracked into a war with Russia, China, Iran, or Bolivia.

We need our president doing what he does best inspiring Middle America.  I am fan of inspirational words and The Donald knows how to ring my bell.  In his speech to the Polish people he said, “The West became great not because of paperwork and regulations but because people were allowed to chase their dreams and pursue their destinies.”

Hopefully our president will see through all the blah-blah-blah in the Media, in Congress, and among the Deep State Government Party hacks.  Keep the peace and allow us the freedom to chase our dreams and pursue our destinies.

Exposing the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel July 11, 2017

Recent revelations by the last investigative reporter in America, James O’Keefe the founder of Project Veritas, expose the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media; the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel for what it is. A conglomeration of private and publicly sponsored corporations dedicated to leading us from America to Amerika.

When Project Veritas released a fourth secretly recorded video episode in its CNN series.  In this episode, the presstitutes’ worst nightmare of reality TV, a Project Veritas reporter spoke with CNN associate producer Jimmy Carr who according to his LinkedIn page has been with CNN since 2013 as a production assistant and associate producer.  In the video Carr doesn’t appear to know he’s being recorded.  The Veritas reporter asks if it “would be fair to question the intellect of the American voter.”

“Oh, no. They’re stupid as s—,” replied the CNN “New Day” associate producer.

Carr went on, “On the inside, we all recognize he is a clown, that he is hilariously unqualified for this, he’s really bad at this, and that he does not have America’s best interests,” said Carr.

“We recognize he’s just f—ing crazy.”

“Here’s the deal: This is a man who’s not actually a Republican,” Carr continued. “He just adopted that because that was the party he thought he could win in. He doesn’t believe anything that these people believe.”

“Ninety percent of us are on board with just the fact that he’s crazy,” he added.

Project Veritas also released a video of a medical producer at CNN saying that while he believes the Trump-Russia narrative is “bulls—,” CEO Jeff Zucker has instructed his employees to focus on it to help boost the network’s ratings.

According to Washington Free Beacon, in the video, CNN producer John Bonifield said the network’s focus on potential ties between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia is based on ratings.  The pull quotes are amazing.

“I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now. Like, we don’t have any big giant proof,” Bonifield said of the Russia story. It is unclear when he made the statement.

“And so I think the president is right to say, like, ‘Look, you are witch-hunting me. You have no smoking gun. You have no real proof,'” Bonifield said.

Once again according to Washington Free Beacon, Bonfield explained that ratings motivate CNN’s focus on the Russia story. Asked why the network aired so much Russia coverage, Bonifield said, “It’s ratings.”

“Our ratings are incredible right now,” he added.

Bonifield also said that the emphasis on Russia came from upper management. He detailed a meeting in which President Jeff Zucker advised staff to focus on the Paris climate accord for a day and a half before returning to Russia.

“The CEO of CNN said in our internal meeting, he said, ‘Good job everybody covering the climate accords, but we’re done with it. Let’s get back to Russia,'” Bonifield said.

Bonifield described a jaded business culture at CNN and in cable news generally.

“All the nice cutesy little ethics that used to get talked about in journalism school, you’re just like, ‘That’s adorable, that’s adorable. This is a business,'” he said.

“They gotta do what they gotta do to make their money,” Bonifield added. “And so I love the news business, but I am very cynical about it. At the same time, so are most of my colleagues.”

Bonifield said that CNN would have turned off its liberal viewers if the network strongly scrutinized former President Barack Obama, but Trump is “good for business.”

In Part Two of the current series of O’Keefe videos Van Jones the professional leftist and former Obama Administration official is stopped on the street and filmed.  Here is how the conversation between the Project Veritas journalist and Jones progressed:

PV Journalist: “Hey man, we met in Palm Springs a few years back.”

Van Jones: “Hey good to see you man, you good?”

PV Journalist: “What do you think is going to happen this week with the whole Russia thing?”

Van Jones: “The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger.”

PV Journalist: “Really?”

Van Jones: “Yeah.”

So what does all this fake news and political propaganda add up to?

We now have a Special Counselor investigating obstruction of justice when there was no underlying crime to begin with.  How can that fail to bring justice for the American people?  My prediction: They will convict someone of something.

We all know that there were people working day and night to corrupt our electoral process in 2016.  It was Clinton and the DNC Ratpack out to stack the deck against socialist Bernie Sanders.  And there was obstruction of justice too in the deleting of email evidence.

However the truth doesn’t fit the playbook of the left.  They’re determined to reverse the results of the 2016 election because they didn’t win.

The presstitutes tell us that O’Keefe is not to be believed.  That he is disreputable and underhanded.  A tactic right out of their guru Saul Alinsky, attack the messenger.  They can’t deny what they’ve said because we can see and hear them as they speak.  So just like the hacked emails they want us to look at how the information was gathered so we won’t realize the information exposes them for what they are, the media megaphone for the Democrat Party, the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel.

A Word to the Wise September 19, 2013

The most insidious result that central-planning and the overabundance of government control that it requires is not the maladjustments that it inevitably creates in the economy.  It is not the crony capitalism and bureaucratic nepotism that it always fosters.  It is not the smothering blanket of nanny-state regulations that strangle creativity.  It is not even the tendency to one-party rule even when camouflaged behind a two party system that is in reality two heads of the same bird of prey.  It is not a system which may actually contain only two parties if you believe there is the government party and the country party.

No none of these missteps on the way to an illusionary utopia are the most insidious result of any system no matter what it is called that is some variation on the socialist theme of “From each according to their ability and to each according to their need.” Instead the most insidious result of the effort by some to control all is a change in the character of the people.

When government regulation becomes an all-embracing web of minutia that requires lawyers, accountants, and other translators of government-speak to comprehend, when safety-nets become hammocks, and when the do-gooders believe that they know what is best for everyone reaches a tipping point people begin to expect others to do for them what they used to do for themselves.  A nation of self-reliant, go-getters can be changed into a sea of slugs on the dole constantly crying and voting for more.

The descendants of the pilgrims and the pioneers are content to wait for their government check and their food stamps as long as there is a game on their flat screen and minutes left on their obamaphone.    Militant apathy has ossified the sinews of a once great people.  So many people don’t care about anything beyond their creature comforts, the most basic of which are guaranteed, that the will to succeed has been squashed.

When you guarantee success and everyone gets a trophy just for showing up few will strive to do more than is required.   When success is punished by the ridicule of the media and the inequality of government policies such as a progressive income tax that says, “The more you make the more we take” few will strive to do more than is required.  When college entrance quotas and set-asides say, “We don’t seek the best and the brightest we look at race and gender to pick the winners and losers” few will strive to do more than is required. When government subsidies and tax-breaks say, “If you have connections the government will hold back the crushing reality of the market at tax-payers’ expense” few will strive to do more than is required.

In America today we are surrounded by low-information voters who either don’t pay any attention to affairs beyond their life or who get their news exclusively from the Progressive controlled Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media.  Their opinions are scripted for them by the progressive group-think of corporate hacks constantly building a narrative to advance their utopian agenda.  If it doesn’t fit it doesn’t print.  If they don’t like what you say it will never play.  America’s once dynamic free press transformed into a one-sided monologue reciting over and over, “Government knows best.”

Our government controlled and increasingly standardized education system works hard to say as some of my students have; “a ‘D’ is good enough.” Or, “At our school we receive an attendance diploma it just means we were there it don’t mean we learned anything.”  Assignments such as I witnessed in a 12th grade Political Science class, “Watch Michael Moore’s film, ‘Fahrenheit 9/11’ and then write an essay on how many ways Bush lied to trick us into invading Iraq” show indoctrination has in many places swallowed education.  Circumstances such as these tend to stifle those who would drive innovation and promote those who are just along for the ride, pass the mediocre while holding back the brilliant.

We have moved from a capitalist system to a mixed economy and now under a president who promised to fundamentally transform America we are lurching into a socialist system in all but name that seeks to ensure equality of result instead of the equal opportunity which has traditionally been the seedbed of America’s meritocracy.  We have transitioned from a small limited government, a representative republic that operates on democratic principles into an all-powerful central government that operates through a massive bureaucracy.  Executive orders are used to make end-runs around Congress and the Constitution.  Unconstitutional and illegal recess appointments are used to avoid the scrutiny of a Senate confirmation.  Our borders are for all intents and purposes open like an automatic door at Wal-Mart.  Forgetting what Ronald Reagan told us, “A nation without borders is not a nation.”

Norman Thomas, an early Socialist candidate for President said, “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”  And as Lenin said, “Socialized Medicine is the Keystone to the Arch of the Socialist State.”

Step-by-step we have journeyed from being a people birthed in rebellion against tyranny, a people who founded the world’s first experiment in a government of the people, by the people and for the people.  Until a nation founded upon a written constitution which guaranteed limited-government, personal liberty, and economic freedom has become just another failed utopia that is spending itself into oblivion as the band plays, “let the good times roll.”
At a time like this it is good to remember some of the wisdom of those who have gone before:

Noah Webster said, “There is no nation on earth powerful enough to accomplish our overthrow.   Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government.”

Alexis de Tocqueville said, “The American Republic will endure, until politicians realize they can bribe the people with their own money.”

Benjamin Franklin said, “When the people find that they can vote themselves money that will herald the end of the republic.”

Barry Goldwater said, “A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away.”

AND

Alexander Tyler said, “A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship”

A word to the wise they say is sufficient.

Wanted a Kamikaze Congress for a Banzai Counterattack October 23, 2010

Posted by Dr. Robert Owens in Uncategorized.

During World War II when the no-longer sleeping giant was pounding on Japan’s door their do-or-die military began Kamikaze attacks against our ever growing fleets in the Pacific. The Kamikaze pilots flew planes filled with bombs into American ships as the first and only honorable expression of the term suicide bomber. During America’s island-hopping advance through the Japanese Empire the combination of courageous marines and naval supremacy led to defeat for the fanatically loyal Japanese. In many cases instead of surrender the last of the defenders launched a Banzai Counterattack. This was the earthbound equivalent of the airborne Kamikaze. A final charge into the face of overwhelming odds meant to either change the game in one decisive blow or to at least die honorably for a sacred cause.

Unless the Progressives are able to pull an election out of their hat the coming midterms have the feeling of an approaching hurricane. The tide, as measured by polls, is going so far out it looks like a tsunami of indignation is about to send a tidal surge of newly elected self-proclaimed Conservatives with a mandate to reverse the Progressive trajectory. A trajectory which has America aimed like a laser at the dust-bin of History.  These newly elected heroes, many of whom have come from nowhere to defeat long-serving Progressive icons, will have been hired by the voters to not only drain the swamp of Federal corruption but to turn the swamp back into the seed bed of liberty and opportunity.

These New Hires must not morph into the in-crowd clique in Washington as so many have in the past. And if the entrenched leaders of the loyal opposition are determined to compromise with the Progressives for some favorable coverage and a photo-op in the rose garden, the New Hires must vote them out and elect new leaders who will fight the good fight. The New Hires must remain true to the people who sent them or the millions of newly aroused voters and grass-roots activists will throw them out in 2012. The Momma Grizzlies, the Grammas, the Grandpas, and all the once-silent majority who’ve sacrificed their repose to stand-up for limited government will turn from ardent supporter to dedicated advisory in the blink of an eye if they believe the new boss starts to look like the old boss.

The New Hires must withstand the ridicule of the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media. The propaganda arm of the Progressive Movement will relentlessly mock and denigrate any who try to dismantle the welfare state and return America to limited government. The New Hires must be willing to commit political suicide by not tweaking but by repealing the entitlements which have turned America from the cradle of opportunity and the arsenal of democracy into a half-way house on the road to the poor-house.

Billionaires who amassed their fortunes through crony deals and manipulation, dedicate themselves to the destruction of capitalism and liberty. They use their power and their front-groups to destroy the lives and the careers of anyone brave enough to step into the swamp and confront the Progressive beast. The recent campaigns have shown no tactic, no smear, no fraud is beneath the opponents of liberty. Instead of victory celebrations on November 3rd the New Hires should rededicate themselves to doing whatever it takes to re-establish limited government.

The hour is late and the night is dark. Our Progressive President aided and abetted by the democrat-controlled Congress of Pelosi and Reid have delivered the wealth of the nation and the power to rule into the hands of a professional bureaucracy willing to legislate through regulations, to rule through politically correct guidelines, and the desire to control our every move. This may be the charge of the Light Brigade into the valley of doom for it’s not enough to return to the spending of the Progressive Bush (either of them) or the Progressive Clinton. No, we need to face the austerity our credit financed binge has purchased. We need to dismantle the entitlement superstructure constructed upon the re-interpreted foundation of the Constitution.

We boomers need to admit we’ve been swindled. There’s no lock-box and there never was. All the money we’ve invested in Social Security over the years wasn’t invested. It was flushed down a rat-hole. There’s nothing there. We have to stop demanding what we feel we have coming and join our children, roll-up our sleeves, and together rebuild the greatest Republic ever to grace the history of man. All of us, every American, needs to admit the binge is over and the time for heavy lifting is here. To pass these changes, over the President’s veto, may swiftly end new political careers. New Heroes will be needed to replace the first line of battle as the banzai counterattack of limited government assaults the ramparts of the Progressive- bureaucratic-media-crony capitalist coalition.

If the portents of a coming pro-limited government victory at the polls prove true we must gird ourselves for the long legislative war against an implacable foe. Be prepared for the Progressives to react like a cornered jackal forced to drop its prey. The battle will be bitter, and don’t count your votes until the dust settles. In any close races ACORN-by-any-other-name will find bags of votes someone forgot to count, the ballots for our heroes defending the Empire overseas can’t seem to make it there on time while those to prisoners are hand- delivered. Thugs who intimidate in front of polling places are given a pass while government-funded institutions urge people to vote early and help the Democratic Party.

Total victory may not be possible until there is a change of administration, but it must be attempted. Those who believe in limited government and personal liberty must make a stand so that those who come after will hear their cry, “These principles we believe in and for these principles we are willing to sacrifice our lives, our fortunes, and our political careers!” Keep the faith. Keep the peace. We shall overcome. Who knows Republicans may even win in Chicago.

What To Do Now That It’sBeen Done December 28, 2009

You can’t beat good political drama. The Nuremberg rallies with all those glistening uniforms and snappy torch light marches. The May Day Parades with the Soviet gerontocracy standing on Lenin’s tomb smiling at the grandchildren of the people they tortured riding on their shiny tanks and missile launchers. Even little North Korea stages some pretty impressive mass birthday parties for the Glorious Midget. We may disagree with everything these totalitarian nightmare regimes stand for. We may abhor their gangster tactics and hellish fantasies about conquering the world but you have to give them credit for knowing how to wow the crowd. They know how to stage a scene and then walk on as the Luke Skywalker of megalomania, wave to the great unwashed return to their castle of doom and continue living life large like Dr. No or in Kim Jong-II’ s case Mini-Me.
The Denver acceptance speech with its Styrofoam Acropolis gave us a hint of the political theater to come. The Victory speech to the teaming masses in Grant Park let us know the curtain was rising. Like the Perils of Pauline in a serial of sequels the suspense continues in the never-ending crisis. We must have health care and we must have it now! We’re so far in debt we need to spend a massive amount quickly or we’ll go bankrupt. This is an emergency there’s no time to read the bill hurry up and vote. We need this now even though it won’t be implemented until after the next presidential election. Hurry up vote!!!
There’s nail-biting suspense and edge-of-the-seat excitement as the plot thickens. What will it cost to buy Mary Landrieu’s vote? How much does Ben Nelson want for Nebraska’s vote? Ram it through no matter what the people want. Our lawyer-infested government knows better. Besides, who are we to question the only honest politician to emerge from the swamp of Chicago political corruption? Want to wake up with a horse’s head in our bed? Just pay the big and shut up they obviously know what’s best they’ve got 60 votes.
What a scene. The courageous iron-willed Nobel-prize-laureate makes his adorable little girls wait for Christmas while Daddy bludgeons a compliant Congress to pass anything they can call heath care reform so the Cavalcade of Czars can fill in the blanks later.
Every move they’ve taken since the November Revolution has been to seize control of the economy and society. Following the insurance, banking, and auto coups the health care take-over delivers another 1/6 of the economy into their clutches. Swiftly following will be Cap-n-Trade either by legislation or EPA mandate, Import-a-Voter-Immigration-Reform and watch for the regime to begin acting as if whatever that was the Boss agreed to in Copenhagen is a ratified treaty committing America to the UN administered shake-down carbon tax to help prop up statists around the world.
The plan is to push through so many changes and to commit us to such enormous debt there will be no way back to the America we’ve known. They’re also planning on maintaining their power in perpetuity through Acorn voter registration, manipulation of the census and import-a-voter immigration reform. Echoing the question I hear every day as I travel around the country, the question I receive every day in emails from concerned Americans from sea to shining sea, “What can we do?”
They organized their way into power and we need to organize their way out. We laughed when someone had the audacity to list Community Organizer as their profession on a presidential résumé. Now we know that wasn’t a joke. We couldn’t believe it when someone from the most corrupt political machine in America was presented as hope for change. But the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media pulled it off. Then after the Republican statists and their casino capitalist pals abandoned free market principles to save the free market it was anti-climatic when a majority of American voters elected a one party regime with unstoppable majorities.
We must organize. We must remain peaceful but we must organize. The Tea Party movement blazed the way. Now a new organization, GOOOH, or Get Out of Our House is growing on the American political horizon with the intention of vetting and backing candidates across the political spectrum. Others such as the Tea Party Patriots and the Tea Party Express are springing up bringing like-minded Americans together for education, encouragement and inspiration. Using the Internet and the exploding social networks these innovative groups are leading the way.
Believers in free enterprise, personal liberty and individual freedom are coalescing to out-organize the organizers. Constitutionally limited government will return to Washington for we shall not go silently into that long dark night. The arrogant career politicians, their media fellow travelers and the entrenched technocrat bureaucracy may think they’ve won the final round. They may think the America we’ve known and loved is down for the count but in reality all they’ve done is awaken a sleeping giant and filled him with a terrible resolve. Don’t despair. Keep the faith. We shall overcome.

Huge Hoax Holding Humanity Hostage December 7, 2009

Wow! The Man-made Global Warming Hoax is a Hoax who saw this coming except anyone investing five minutes examining the scientific evidence from both sides. Or anyone remembering this is the same crowd of alarmists who warned of a new ice age in 1970s. Let’s see, they wouldn’t buy the Brooklyn Bridge but they’re willing to mortgage the farm for the Golden Gate.
When you challenge someone’s religion be prepared for a spirited reaction. Those who realized Man-made Global Warming was a hoax have long recognized this is a faith-based movement. They also realized the agenda of the hipper-than-thou high priests of this movement has always been something other than a cool world. Science is advanced by hypothesis, experimentation, and analysis not by consensus. Consensus is a political term, a political concept and a clue that the Man-made Global Warming agenda is a political agenda. The only credible science these scam artists are using is Political Science.
Al Gore, the world’s self-proclaimed leading Man-made Global Warming expert and lobbyist and by sheer coincidence one of the world’s largest Green Entrepreneurs has garnered a Nobel Peace Prize, an Oscar and millions of dollars by scaring the wits out of people who believe the cherry-picked data he and others present as evidence. As a college professor I would be shocked if any freshman submitted a paper with the flimsy sources of his transparently fictitious movie. The unattributed scenes from the Hollywood movie Day After Tomorrow presented as unattributed evidence would’ve earned him an “F” for plagiarism.
Calling the Man-made Global Warming crusade a hoax isn’t fair to hoaxes. This is and always has been a scam perpetrated by the evil upon the naïve. It isn’t about the environment it’s about power. Have you ever noticed how the apostles of Man-made Global Warming use private jets and limos going to paved-over acres of paved-over rain-forest to hold self-promoting conferences? These are hypocrites masquerading as humanitarians holding humanity hostage with a huge hoax.
The recent revelation of collusion, deception and fraud between government-funded scientists, research universities, bureaucrats, green corporations, the Media and the Man-made Global Warming Illuminati should open the eyes of even the willfully blind. Remember, when you challenge someone’s religion you should expect a spirited reaction. There’s no disappointment in that regard. Now that the curtain has been pulled away and everyone can see grifters are manipulating levers behind the great and munificent Gore all the stops have been pulled out.
The Man-made Global Warming Lobby presses day and night to ensnare the United States in an international treaty in which the West confesses guilt for causing Man-made Global Warming as unrealistically as the Treaty of Versailles forced the Germans to accept 100% of the blame for World War I. The Copenhagen monstrosity also imposes wealth-transfer payments upon the U. S. potentially as destructive as the reparations demanded of a defeated Germany by the victorious Allies.
After the fall of Communism in America vast numbers of uninformed voters, the easily frightened and the purely partisan proved sufficient to rescue radical Liberalism from its well deserved place in the dustbin of history. Using the cover of an unpopular war and the ineptness of co-opted politicians pretending to be conservatives the radical liberals won an unstoppable majority in Congress and the White House. Now they’re advancing a legislative agenda aimed at central-planning while preparing to surrender our sovereignty through international treaties.
The fact that Man-made Global Warming has been exposed as the greatest swindle ever attempted will not phase the ideologues and statists who’ve gained a stranglehold on power in America. They’re going to force an economy killing Cap-N-Trade boondoggle and the Copenhagen Capitulation down our throats before the voters get a chance to speak as loudly as the Tea Party Patriots and the honest scientists have spoken already. Before We the People get an opportunity in 2010 to right the ship of state this collection of demagogues are attempting to seal our fate.
Hordes of voters awaken from a media-induced trance and realize the change they can believe in was really bait-and-switch. In the hearts of many buyer’s remorse replaces the mesmerizing affects of a manufactured messiah. Knowing they have all the power needed to accomplish their goal of downsizing America and seeing a voter’s revolt on the horizon the statists push forward the hoax of Man-made Global Warming. If they have their way they may yet turn this science fiction into the reality of a Man-caused Disaster.
I’m not saying the climate doesn’t change. After two days of raking leaves this Political Scientist can truthfully testify that it does about every three months. The planet tilts, wobbles and moves in its orbit and there’s a thermonuclear ball of heat and light out there called the Sun which I believe has more to do with global warming and cooling than anything man has ever or will ever do. Once the hokum is out of the hoax if the shamans of the First Church of Man-made Global Warming can change the climate I’ll take 72-76º, rain at night and sunny all day.

Walin and Flailin on Palin November 30, 2009

Sarah Palin made the mistake of being a self-made woman who actually accomplished things in her own right instead of riding her husband’s coattails. She worked next to her husband founding and managing a small business that continues to flourish. She was active in local school and community affairs. She ran for local office serving as a council person and eventually mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. She took on several positions in the state government. She resigned a high office to battle the insiders who had run the state for years. Elected Governor she was soon the most popular governor in America. She accomplished all this without using a family fortune, marrying for money or buying her way into prominence. She achieved position and influence the old fashioned way, she earned it.
Instead of being the cause for celebration among liberals this classic American story of self-improvement and success inspired them to seek the destruction of Governor Palin and her family. Liberal news organizations sent numerous reporters to dig for dirty gold in Alaska while sending no reporters to investigate the Democrat Vice-Presidential candidate. These instigations spawned so many frivolous lawsuits the Governor cited the desire to save Alaska the money wasted investigating these suits as one of the substantial reasons for her resignation. Since then the liberal media has taken every opportunity to malign her and her family. Today the AP alone has assigned eleven reporters to fact-check her new book. They assigned none to fact check Hillary’s. The slander on the left has poured like a torrent over Sarah Palin and her family, maligning her faith, her service, her personal life, her intelligence and all because she dares to be a successful woman who doesn’t toe the liberal party-line.
Justice Clarence Thomas made the mistake of succeeding off the Liberal Plantation. His life story proves that he didn’t need a preferential treatment or a hand-out. He had a successful private practice then served as an Assistant Attorney General. He was the Assistant Secretary of Education, the Chairman of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and a judge on the US Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. The national broadcast of Justice Thomas’ confirmation hearings was characterized as an electronic lynching as partisan operatives manufactured unsubstantiated tales to besmirch his character.
According to the ideological lexicon of the left women and minorities are supposed to be liberals whether they wear the “D” or the “R.” If they aren’t campaigns of contempt pursue them relentlessly. The power and prejudices of the Liberal Attack Machine are accurately documented by Ann Coulter in her eye-opening book Guilty. So this knee-jerk disdain and malignant reaction against self-starters who succeed without a government program or the good-ole-boy network of the Liberal Establishment does not surprise the informed. It aims its venom not only at politicians and jurists but at all who don’t serve their cause. According to the liberal play-book conservative commentators are slow-witted, hateful, and bigoted by nature and besides they’ve broken the Left’s media monopoly so they too must be squashed.
Rush Limbaugh rendezvoused with destiny in 1987, when under Ronald Reagan the Federal Communications Commission rescinded its patently unfair Fairness Doctrine. This bureaucratic regulation in theory required radio and television stations to provide equal time to both sides of political debates. In practice this meant anyone bold enough to express a conservative view had to provide free air-time for a rebuttal. Liberals weren’t forced to do this since the liberal bureaucrats considered their group-think to be uncontroversial and mainstream. Once the airwaves were freed from this subversion of the First Amendment Limbaugh’s straight-talking common-sense style birthed a loyal following. He’s currently heard on over 600 stations covering and dominating every major market in America. Rush has been continuously vilified by what he calls the State-Run Media. They’ve exaggerated his confessed missteps, slandered him using manufactured quotes and represented his vast following as mind-numbed robots. But no matter how they abuse him he continues to have more fun than a human being should be allowed to have confounding them at every step even with half his brain tied behind his back.
Glenn Beck is the third most listened to radio personality in America and for some strange reason he’s proud of that. He’s an Independent who wages a relentless personal campaign for the preservation of the Constitution and personal freedom. For this Glenn is hated and abused daily by the Liberals in every way. Having a squeaky clean personal life the best they have to throw at him is that he’s overweight.
Michael Savage, uses the bluntness of Patton and the insight of Reagan to highlight the absurdity of the Liberal agenda. He’s the best educated among the major Conservative talk hosts holding two Masters degrees and a PhD and this doctor’s diagnosis is that liberalism is a mental disorder. He’s the only member of the American media ever banned from a Western Nation highlighting the disdain the international liberal establishment has for him and his pro-freedom, pro-capitalist views.
The toxic hatred and obvious double standard of the Liberal Attack Machine makes laughable its oft repeated claims of objectivity. This lock-step discrimination leads to broadside attacks and campaigns of malignant journalism against achievers as highlighted in the walin and flailin on Palin.

It’s Never Too Early to be Too Late November 17, 2009

If no one has told you this yet let me be the first, as you get older time goes faster. If you’re under thirty you’re thinking, “This old coot has finally gone off his rocker! Everyone knows an hour is an hour. So how can time go faster as you get older?” If you’re between thirty and forty you’re thinking, “Who’s got time to think about time and who cares? I’ve got to go to work!” If you’re between forty and sixty you’re thinking “He might have something there” as you day-dream about those endless summers when you were in High School. If you’re over sixty you’re hoping time doesn’t end before you finish reading this paragraph.
Besides being a dimension time is a concept that’s inextricably intertwined with our material reality as in the space-time-continuum, E=MC2 and all that. It took the genius of Einstein to find a way to prove what every old man knows, time can move at different speeds for different people. Knowing all this is little comfort when confronted with reality. The last wave of the Millennial Generation has entered college. I now teach History to students born after the end of the Cold War adults who’ve never known a day without a personal computer, the internet or a cell phone.
When the weapons of the superpowers became too terrible to use the Lost Generation, those who fought World War One and led the world through the Great Depression and World War Two gave America the Cold War. For those too young to remember this was a 50 year conflict marked by bellicose rivalry and our first modern limited war in Korea. Not to be outdone the Greatest Generation, those who grew-up in the Great Depression and fought World War Two and Korea gave us escalating tensions, naval blockades and another limited war in Vietnam. They finished with a flourish by winning the Cold War and then doing a hundred day encore in the Gulf.
The Boomers hit the White House like guest hosts on Saturday Night Live with a snappy monologue and a party in the Oval Office. They tried to keep the limited war train rolling by occupying Bosnia. Losing a Blackhawk in Somalia and bombing Serbia for Kosovo. Then Boomer George met Osama in New York. Enter the first post-boomer president and a War on Terror becomes a law enforcement problem just as Korea with 55,000 dead was a Police Action. Have we refined limited war to the point that we aren’t sure whether it’s a war or a series of unrelated unfortunate incidents?
A friend who optimistically believes every cloud has a silver lining hopes the tragedy at Fort Hood was merely the work of a volunteer in the Insane Clown Army and not a terrorist attack on an American Army base in our supposedly safe Homeland. This struck me as symptomatic of the age we’ve entered; call it the Reality Show at the End of an Era. In the land of the free and the home of the brave the best we can hope for is a demented mass murderer because the alternative is too frightening to face. If home-grown Jihadists are beginning to kill the brave in bosom of the Heartland it won’t be long before check-points and internal passports begin restricting the free in the byways of the homeland.
Have you ever noticed that after Pearl Harbor we didn’t declare war on sneak attacks? Instead, we declared war on those who attacked us. In America today we’re constrained by the emasculating cult of Political Correctness from even naming our enemy. Our leaders blather on about religions of peace when people hold street dances to celebrate 9-11 and mobs murder and burn in reaction to an offensive comic strip. Now we have a person doing his best to enlist as a foot-soldier in Osama’s army while serving in Obama’s, shouting the catch phrase of the 9-11 bomber pilots as he murders more than a dozen unarmed innocents and the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media pussy-foot around trying to give us the false hope that he’s merely a homicidal maniac.
It’s time to understand that if we don’t stand for something we’ll fall for anything and until you admit you have a problem there’s no chance of finding a solution.
Time is slipping into the future. Are we going to stand complicit in our silence as wars without limit fought by people who proudly proclaim they love death more than we love life shoot our unarmed citizens in the name of God? Will we allow apologists for evil to blame the second amendment instead of telling us the truth?
It’s time to rise up and say enough is enough! We know who are enemies are and we know who we are! If the brave want to keep their land the free can’t sit at home chasing the remote. Whatever speed time is moving its going too fast to wait. It’s never too early to be too late. Let’s roll….
