Obama the Desperado

I dedicate this song to Barack Obama, aka POTUS, who looks for all the world like a poor, pitiful and pitiable - DESPERADO, as he flits about the country lying while trying to sell a lemon product that no one wants -- Obamacare.
"It's hard to tell the night time from the day; You're loosin' all your highs and lows' Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away? Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?"

Obamacare Champion Loses Insurance Plan

Unintended Consequences: The Hammer of Obama's Revenge on Republicans is also hitting Obama's Middle Class non-Elites.

This is incredibly sad, so why am I finding it difficult to resist a little schadenfreude? I guess I am just human, or perhaps I am remembering all those charges of RACIST HATERS hurled at those of us who criticized "The Plan" before it was passed with no Republican votes and without any Democrat legislators bothering to read it.
She was a nurse for 35 years and championed Obamacare, until she received a letter from her insurance company saying it was canceling her policy. ... 'I really just wanted him to know … I was so hopeful that this plan was going to move us forward, but in fact I think it’s moving us backward,' Wagner said." Colorado Woman Who Championed Obamacare Loses Insurance Plan « CBS Denver
ObamaCare was specifically designed to reward Obama's constituencies and to penalize those who support Republicans. Right off the bat Obama gave waivers to the Elites in his party so they would not suffer the wrath intended for Republicans. However, he didn't bother to protect his own supporters who look and act like Republicans - have jobs, pay taxes, so the hammer of revenge hitting Republicans is also hitting those pitiful, unsuspecting low-information Obama supporters. Nationwide at least 3.5 million people have received cancellation notices of their Health Insurance Plans that President Barack Obama had promised they could keep "PERIOD." So "Yes," the Obama administration explains, "unfortunately, a very small number of them will be loyal Democrats. Yes, so sad."

Obama Compares ObamaCare to Fugitive Slave Act of 1850

ObamaCare - ‘as destructive to personal and individual liberty as the Fugitive Slave Act.’ 

State Representative Bill O’Brien of New Hampshire compared Obamacare to the 19th century Fugitive Slave Act, saying "It is a law as destructive to personal and individual liberty as the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850."

Our always race conscious President Barack Obama picked up that comment and ran with it all the way to Maryland where he fully mocked O'Brien and had the shocked crowd of Obama fans roaring with delight: “The closer we get, the more desperate they get. I mean, over the last few weeks, the rhetoric has just been cranked up to a place I’ve never seen before,” Obama said. "You had a state representative somewhere say that it’s ‘as destructive to personal and individual liberty as the Fugitive Slave Act.’ Think about that: Affordable healthcare is worse than a law that lets slaveowners get their runaway slaves back. I mean, these are quotes. I’m not making this stuff up.

In reality, the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, was destructive to the liberty of the enslaved, a small minority of America at that time. The ACA, also known as ObamaCare, is destructive to the liberties of almost 100% of free Americans in 2013. I say "almost" 100%, because Obama's elites have been granted relief from having to enroll in ObamaCare. And to quote the President "I'm not making this stuff up."

Cuccinelli's Loss in Virginia due to GOP Treachery

"I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice! And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue!" --Barry Goldwater

Virginia Republicans described Cuccinelli as an Extremist and say that is why they fought against him and supported the Democrat McAuliffe. However, the Washington Examiner’s Tim Carney writes, “Virginia’s Ken Cuccinelli would arguably be the most libertarian governor in the United States.” Cuccinelli has an A rating from the NRA; he promised to cut the income-tax rate 15% for individuals, 33% for corporations; he was against expanding the death penalty; he fought against the smoking ban; he fought Obamacare from the start; and he opposed Medicaid expansion. He was endorsed by both Ron and Rand Paul.

A Republican Operative in Virginia described Ken Cuccinelli as an Extremist that the Republican Party of Virginia found too repugnant to support. The political guru said that Ken Cuccinelli was mean to Virginia's Republicans calling them names "... you all are not pure enough for me ... you are a bunch of worthless RINOs ... you should move." So the Republican Party of Virginia nominated him as its Standard Bearer anyway. Then Ken said: "Hey why aren't you supporting me and sending me tons of money ... what is wrong with you Virginia GOP?" So the Virginia Republicans took revenge on Extremist Ken by supporting a Leftist Democrat for Virginia Governor, Terry McAuliffe. That made perfect third-grader sense. However, Ken Cuccinelli got even in the long run, because his loss reveals the true nature of the Virginia Republican Party and the National Republican Party too. Up until last night, naive Tea Partiers, Conservatives, Libertarians, Evangelicals had believed their home was in the Republican Party. Now they find the truth revealed that Republicans really despise them and their ilk and judge their creed as "icky, neanderthal." Extremist Ken Cuccinelli - turning Republicans into Whigs with one resounding loss.

Establishment Republicans Teach Tea Party a Lesson in Virginia
"A loss by Ken Cuccinelli was supposed to have been a wake-up call to the tea party that deeply conservative candidates couldn’t win in swing states like Virginia. Instead, the GOP nominee’s near-miss in Tuesday’s race for governor has only deepened the party’s ideological divide."
Going into Election Day, Republicans in the Old Dominion and beyond expected their nominee to suffer a humiliating defeat to Democrat Terry McAuliffe so they could then taunt their Skunks at the Garden Party: "Na, Na Na, we told you this would happen." But the plan blew up in the GOP's face, for when the election results came in, the margin was only two and one half (2 ½) points. Had there been just a little more help from the Establishment Republicans, a Tea Party Skunk could have won the governorship. What a revolting development. Ronald Reagan said "somebody who agrees with you 80% of the time is an 80% friend not a 20% enemy,” and he had contempt for the Rockefeller wing of the Republican Party (today's moderate or liberal Republicans), which feeling was mutual. Pat yourselves on the back Republican GOP geniuses for making sure your party is not big enough to include Conservatives and Tea Partiers.

Establishment Republicans who actively supported Terry McCauliffe against Republican Nominee Ken Cuccinelli:
"When Cuccinelli’s “moderate” Republican rival for the nomination, the state’s former Lt. Governor, publicly attacked Cuccinelli and privately urged donors not to support him, the DC Establishment said nothing. Had a conservative done the same to a moderate Republican—taken his marbles and gone home when he did not win the primary—the uproar would have been deafening." (The Republican Establishment Lost Virginia)
Bill Bolling, Virginia's Lieutenant Governor, miffed that he did not win the gubernatorial nomination, went on to question Cuccinelli’s electability, praised Democrat nominee Terry McAuliffe, and, although he eventually opted against it, publicly weighed a campaign to torpedo Cuccinelli’s chances in the general election.

Lying Leads to Lying about Lies

Lying About Lies - Why Credibility Matters to Obama. The president is trying to reinvent the history of his "you-can-keep-it promise" on Obamacare.

Why do we fret about Progressives like Barack Obama lying? Truth is not the goal of any Progressive. The Progressives goal is to retain their political viability, to keep their community of collectivists together, and to protect their own earnings and property. They are pragmatists, if nothing else, and their lies are an end that justifies the means.

In addition, for Barack Obama, Taqqiya is probably ingrained in the roots of his cultural upbringings by a Muslim father and Muslim stepfather in Indonesia. Taqqiya is accepted as religious dissimulation, or a legal dispensation to commit illegal or blasphemous acts when there is risk of persecution by non-Muslims.
The basic interpretation of "the end justifies the means" (from Aeria Gloris
"At the beginning of an action I might not be able to determine whether that action is morally right or wrong, but when the morally right goal is successfully achieved, then the steps which led to it must be morally right too."
When a little twist is introduced to this interpretation, it becomes: "I shall do a minor evil to achieve a greater good." or "My aim for greater good makes all the evils I have done right."
If we set the game of morality aside, "the end justifies the means" becomes "the result proves the means to be efficient" - which is somewhat obvious.
What can we learn from "the end just justifies the means"? From a moral standpoint, we can say that the morality of an act can be determined only at the point in time when it is committed; we have to make a decision with insufficient information, and it is only the intent at that point which determines the morality of the action. On the contrary, if we would presume that the morality of an act can be determined at a later time with more information present, then we could conclude that we could determine it with greater accuracy at an even later point in time - and so on, at which point the question of morality loses sense.
Morality aside, "the end justifies the means" teaches us not to shoot ourselves in the foot: If the vision, the goal which we have set ourselves is incomplete, then the worst thing that could happen to us is to accomplish that goal with all means necessary. At that point, we would realize that the goal we have set ourselves is not the goal we have desired - we have failed to clearly create our vision. 
By focusing only on a small part of the complete vision, we may ignore and mess up the rest. Be careful what you want, because you might get it. And when you do, no amount of justification will help you.
(Although mostly attributed to Machiavelli, the phrase "the end justifies the means" is not one of his creations.)

A Second Bill of Rights for America

The nascence of all of our American collectivist troubles began with President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a 19th century man, implementing 19th century collectivist ideas on a nation that was founded by 18th century men of Enlightenment. It happened in the 20th century, on January 11, 1944. In the near seventy years since Roosevelt's speech, all the 19th century Marxist ideas he espoused have failed miserably resulting in the collectivist governments murdering more than 200 million of their own citizens.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Second Bill of Rights have shaped the beliefs of the American progressive movement towards domestic policy ever since. The rights that FDR cited are:
  • The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation; 
  • The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation; 
  • The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living; 
  • The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad; 
  • The right of every family to a decent home;
  • The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health; 
  • The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment; 
  • The right to a good education.
From Dear Liberal - Here's Why I Am So Hostile
Take a moment to ponder the real Bill of Rights that was bequeathed to us by the Founders James Madison and George Mason, both men of the Enlightenment. Their document guaranteed to us freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom to petition the government, freedom to bear arms, freedom from illegal search and seizure, whilst taking no rights from our fellow citizens. The real Bill of Rights guarantees our real human rights as an unconditional possession, not something provided by the labor of others.

Contrast that to FDR's "Bill of Rights" which is really a "List of Demands" upon the worker bees of the nation, your fellow citizens. Roosevelt's "Second Bill of Rights" guarantees every citizen a job, food, clothing, recreational expenses, price fixing for farmers, businesses free of "unfair" competition and domination, a decent home, medical care, education, and protection from old age, sickness, accident and unemployment. Good Lord - What a List of Demands! Roosevelt's collectivist mind redefined basic human rights and required that these "new" basic human rights be paid for by working Americans, the 50% of Americans who pay taxes.

African-Americans Don't Like being African?

How's 'Sub-Sharan-African-American' Sound?

Morgan Freeman today weighed in noting that political correctness has forced upon him the label of “African” in the term “African-American.” He doesn't like it one bit, as he says he is not African. "I mean, you get — politically correct stuff happens that you don’t want to happen. I all of a sudden became an African — political correctness, African-American. I’m not African.

MORGAN FREEMAN TALKS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS: 'I all of a sudden became an African.'

Really? Who knew? Morgan Freeman's comment would be unbelievable if we had not already become accustomed to the capriciousness of the First Black President, Barack Obama, after these past five years.

For the multiple grievances filed, redressed, endured, it has come to this? African-Americans don't want to be African any more? Morgan Freeman's folk decided long ago that they were no longer Negroes except when someone is donating to the United Negro College Fund. They preferred "Colored" as in "People of Color." Eventually, it became a terrible slur to use that word so they went so far as to change the name of their beloved National Association for the Advancement of Colored People to the "N - Double A - CP," NAACP. Then they decided that "Black" was beautiful, until for some reason known only to them, Black lost its luster, ... except for the Congressional Black Caucus. During all their own name-changings, their political correctness went as far as renaming White Caucasians as European-Americans which no real Americans appreciated.

Now the Black Colored Non-Causcasian African-Americans have decided they don't like being African any more. Maybe they don't want to be confused with the real African immigrants who have come to America in recent years. Well, knock yourselves out guys deciding who you really are. The rest of us are no longer interested. We know who we are, as you have called us Racist too many times.

As for me, myself, I am a real African American, so don't go nuts calling me Racist. My paternal grandfather came from South Africa, and until the 1980s, it never dawned on me that I could be identified as "African-American." However my connection to Africa is but one generation away, far closer than any of you all who were once clamoring to be titled "African-American." I have no idea how you now want to be identified. Perhaps you will go for the more precise nomenclature of "Sub-Sharan-African-American." Whatever floats you boat ... for a while at least.

I'm White, that's okay with me. I'm Caucasian and that's okay too as it is my race. I don't identify as African-American nor European-American, so you can call me that if you must, but I won't answer. I'm just plain American - that is my nationality. So sorry that you got bamboozled by all that Political Correctness going around and got turned into Africans against your will. That is sad, but it is really your own damn fault.

Rep. Gerry Connolly of Virginia, Ridicules Congressional Hearings

Has anyone ever seen a US Congressman ridiculing something as serious as the IRS discriminating against Americans because of their political beliefs? Here is one, Democrat Representative Gerry Connolly, the lowest of the low, elected by the voters of Fairfax and Annandale, Virginia. He also walked out on the parents of the murdered Americans in Benghazi when they were asked to testify. He is my congressman.

Democrat Congressman Gerald Connolly asked Sarah Hall Ingram, who is overseeing the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) at the IRS, if she is a witch, mocking his Republican colleagues.

A Non-Totalitarian America

Today is Halloween, and it is a scary time indeed. 

--- Take a stand for a non-totalitarian America and work to defeat those whose minds have been shackled with the hard-core Leftism of Multi-culturalism, Diversity, Political Correctness. At this moment in time most of the institutions of our American society -- government, businesses, colleges, charities, religious institutions and the like -- have been captured by the Cultural Marxists and the nation we will leave to our children will be a place of darkness, unlike the free land of hope and opportunity that we old folks inherited from our World War Two parents and grandparents. We are in Revolution, in the midst of a bloodless coup, and we on the Right side are losing the battles and we are in danger of losing our native land forever.

The Democrat Party has been transformed into a party of Radical Leftists intent on transforming America into a Land of Marxists, Fascists and Totalitarians. The party's constituency of Liberation Catholics, Social Justice Jews, Inner-city Blacks and Black grievance leaders, radical Feminists, the Gay Mob, and illegal aliens, along with a peppering of wealthy crony Socialists in Hollywood and on Wall Street, constitute at least half of America these days. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Here is an example of a Democrat Radical who is in control of your Health Care from now on. It is his party of radicals who now determine what kind of health care you will receive for yourself and your family. That decision is no longer in your hands because you are too dumb to know what is best for you. This man is Democrat United States Congressman Frank Pallone from New Jersey. Listen to his brilliance:

  America Coming Apart

White America - 'Coming Apart'

November 21st, 1963, was the last day of the America that was created by the Founding Fathers. Fifty years ago, "The American Way of Life" ended.

Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010

"The American Way of Life" ended November 21st, 1963, fifty years ago. After World War II, most members of the Marxist Frankfurt School went back to Germany. Herbert Marcuse however remained in America. He began targeting college students with a phrase he invented, “Make love, not war." Marcuse argued for a “liberating tolerance,” which meant tolerance for all ideas coming from the Left and intolerance for any ideas coming from the Right. In the 1960s, Marcuse became the chief “guru” of students and professors in American universities to the point where today, right now in 2013, Cultural Marxism is America’s state ideology. Indeed, although the First Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion," through the educational system, the media, the military and the government, Cultural Marxism has become America's state religion.

Cultural Marxism - America's State Ideology
Cultural Marxism is a branch of western Marxism, different from the Marxism-Leninism of the old Soviet Union. It is commonly known as “multiculturalism” or, less formally, Political Correctness. From its beginning, the promoters of cultural Marxism have known they could be more effective if they concealed the Marxist nature of their work, hence the use of terms such as “multiculturalism.”
About the Frankfurt School
Who in America today is at work destroying our traditions, our family bonds, our religious beginnings, our reinforcing institutions, indeed, our entire culture? What is it that is changing our American civilization? ... They were members of the Frankfurt School, formed in Germany in 1923. They were the forebears of what some proclaim as 'cultural Marxism,' a radical social movement that has transformed American culture. It is more commonly known today as 'political correctness.'
The Occidental - White Identity, Interests, Culture

ObamaCare - The Affordable Care Act (ACA)
Barack Obama deliberately and meticulously designed ObamaCare to benefit his Democratic constituencies and to penalize and eventually destroy Republican voters. President Barack Obama has pounded a final blow to what little was left of America. With ObamaCare, he has delivered his entire nation to the Cultural Marxists (Multi-culturalism, Diversity, Political Correctness, Alinskyism). ObamaCare, also known as the Affordable Care Act, is Racist, Sexist and anti-Christianity. It was implemented for the benefit of America's Socialist-Marxist constituencies - Liberation Catholics, Social Justice Jews, African Americans, Feminists, Gay Mob homosexuals, and illegal immigrants. ObamaCare exists to destroy the constituencies of the Right, including businesses, religious institutions, and principally the followers of America's dead White male Christian Founding Fathers.

Political Correctness IS Cultural Marxism from American Thinker

Corporatism is born out of Democracy Gone Corrupt
Corporatism undermines free market capitalist ideals. Corporatism is born out of modern day democracies gone corrupt, democracies which allow their governments to grant special laws and regulations to the cronies of the people's elected representatives, to the lobbyists who materially reward those the voters' elected. Corporatism in effect diminishes the rights and liberties of those voters who elected their national leaders and representatives in Congress. Corporatism is not Capitalism, it is Cronyism, and Corporatism is financed on the backs of American workers who still pay taxes.

ObamaCare - Designed to Fail

"Designed to Fail" is a brilliant strategy for Progressives who want us all on a Fast Track to Single Payer. There is no comparison between business which operates under a bottom line and government which has unlimited funds. The government had the financial means to hire the most brilliant web designers in Silicon Valley. Instead HHS obviously let out the contracts to Affirmative Action hires who majored in Women's Studies or Community Organizing who in turn hired their brothers-in-law who learned web design in adult-education classes. "Designed to Fail" -- there is not a shadow of doubt.

Right now I am awaiting reports on successful doctors' appointments for people who actually signed on to ObamaCare. It is one thing to have insurance; it is another to have a doctor who will accept it. I can already hear the weeping and wailing of those poor, pitiful ObamaCare subscribers who call and doctors in China or India answer the phone.

Apparently the odds are better for meeting Big Foot than to meet someone who has successfully signed up for the "real" Obamacare. Rumor has it that there are so many fake ACA websites that are far better designed and more functional than the "real" ObamaCare" site, that those who claim to have been successful in signing on to ObamaCare, were actually tricked into giving all of their personal data and health information to hackers. Few people, especially the folks attracted to ObamaCare, even know what a URL is, much less have a clue about the ending of a web address. " .gov, .net, .com, .org, .us." -- DUH! Those are probably the people who are reporting that they were successful in signing up to ObamaCare.

What Glorious Days are upon us for our country. We are DOOMED, DOOMED, DOOMED.

Naming the Washington Redskins

Red Was the Color of War

This image is of William "Lone Star" Dietz, whose mother was a full blooded Sioux Indian. Dietz was the first coach of the Redskins football team, and it was in his honor that the football team was named "Redskins". He brought a number of Indian players with him to the team and they wore war paint and Indian bonnets at games.

How did it come to be that the football team in Washington DC is named "The Redskins"? Marc Fisher, Metro Columnist for the Washington Post, 2002, explained, writing that the official story is that when the Boston Braves football team left Braves Field to play at Fenway Park in 1933, the owner needed to find a new name for his squad.
He chose Redskins in honor of Lone Star Dietz, the team's coach and an Indian who often wore an eagle feather headdress, beaded deerskin jacket and buckskin moccasins. Dietz brought four to six -- accounts vary -- Indian players with him to Boston from the Haskell Indian School in Kansas, where he had coached for four years.
Another version has the team being named for the white men who dressed up as Indians to stage the Boston Tea Party at the start of the American Revolution. 

Whichever version is correct, "the reality is more benign than people on both sides of the fence are attributing to it," says sports historian and museum consultant Frank Ceresi. "The name was meant very, very positively."

The genesis may always remain murky ... . But it is clear that the Boston Redskins, who moved to Washington in 1937, sought to capitalize on their Indian players and coach: The team played wearing red war paint. And Indian players from the time considered the name and trappings an honor. From Boston Redskins 1932-1936:
"1933: Now led by Lone Star Dietz, a Native American Coach, the team moves to Fenway Park. With the move the team also undergoes a name change becoming the Boston Redskins. The Redskins would alternate wins and losses all season and would finish with a 5-5-2 record."
For more information about William Lone Star Dietz including a picture of him in Indian dress, go here.

Democrats Gone Evil

In Obama's America, Dissent is Dangerous
Recently in the news, some prominent Democrats are publicly advocating for the painful or violent deaths of the innocent children of those whose political views Democrats abhor - Pro-life, right to bear arms, pro-military, right to free speech, and Christianity. It seems that after two generations of Democrats gleefully screeching support for women eliminating their own unborn children, the next logical step is to advocate for the deaths of other people's children. These frightening comments by prominent Democrats began before the election of Barack Obama, but have greatly increased in frequency since then.

Paradise is a Place With No Republicans

Here is a wonderful state with almost ZERO Republicans: Illinois.

1) There are more people on Welfare in Illinois than there are people working.

2) Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. averaging $110,000/year. 

3) Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. You can't blame that on republicans because there aren't any. Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what? Be sure to read till the end. I've never heard it explained better.

Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago?

1) Body count: In the last six months 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago .

2) 221 killed in Iraq AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.

Here's the Chicago chain of command:
. President: Barack Hussein Obama
. Senator: Dick Durbin
. House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr.
. Governor: Pat Quinn 
. House leader: Mike Madigan
. Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike)
. Mayor: Rohm Emanuel
. The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats.
. Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago .

. Of course, they're all blaming each other.
. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
. Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
. State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
. Cook County (Chicago) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
. This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. And he is going to 'fix' Washington politics for us...yeah right!
. George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in the big house.
Of course he was replaced by Rob Blajegovitch who is ... that's right, also in the big house.
And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned a couple of weeks ago. That is because he is fighting being sent to ... that's right, the same big house.

The Land of Lincoln, where our governors make our license plates.
But you know what? As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does. Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him, better take a closer look at the American Indian.

Is Facebook Discriminatory or Just Plain Bigoted?

I sent the following "Message to Facebook" today and if I ever receive a response I will post it here.

"If it is unacceptable to refer to Democrats with the racist "N" word, why do Democrats and Facebook find it acceptable to refer to Tea Party members with a vulgar homosexual slur that I find as disgusting as the "N" word? Both terms are beyond the pale and I do not want to see them on my wall."

I also commented to Facebook about the number of Facebook groups that use the vulgar Tea Party slur in their titles and I asked Facebook if they also allow the reprehensible "N" word in the Titles of Facebook groups?

Loose Lips Sink Airships

Somebody talked: In August of 2011, seventeen members of the elite Navy SEALs, five Naval Special Warfare personnel who support the SEALs, three Air Force Special Operations personnel and an Army helicopter crew of five were killed when their airship was shot down. All but two of the SEALs were from SEAL Team 6, the unit that killed Osama bin Laden. Somebody talked, but no one in the American government nor the American press seems to care who it was who talked.

ObamaSpeak - Multiplication of Words Without Knowledge

And speaking of our beloved American wordsmiths in the media, how can they, with straight faces, overlook the First Wordsmith-in-Chief, Harvard and Columbia educated as he is, displaying such an atrocious example of English grammar to his lesser subjects? Barack Obama was given the benefit of the best education that America offers, yet he continues, even after six years in the Presidency, to be clueless on conjugating "simple" verb tenses in his sentences and baffled in the use of English plurals: "Hillary Clinton is one of the best 'Secretary of States'. By now, his daughters should be able to teach him the difference between the words "Who" and "Whom" in a sentence: "to at least force disclosure of who is giving to who" (Obamaspeak).

Obama's Disrespect to America's Heritage

This White House desk that Barack Obama has disrespectfully planted his foot upon, is the historic "Resolute Desk," a gift from British Queen Victoria to President Hayes in 1880. If I had no other reason to intensely dislike this ignorant man who occupies the People's House, it is the glaring disrespect he continually shows to the historic furnishings that belong to "We the People." He cannot be anywhere near a piece of hand-crafted wood furniture, table, desk, whatever, without slamming his shoes upon it, almost always both feet. Someone should publish a book of photographs of his disgusting antics in this regard. The man has no respect for the office he holds. Imagine if George W. or Ronald Reagan disrespected American antiques in this manner. How the corrupt American media would howl and screech!

And to add further disbelief to outrage, the above photograph showcasing the President's ignorant disrespect to America, is an official White House photograph by Pete Sousa. Because it is an official photograph, some are describing this portrait of Obama with his shoe on the British desk as an "official" rebuke to his despised British for their recent vote of repudiation in Parliament, much like his return of the Winston Churchill bust. We remember Obama's recent attempt to slap the Brits in their faces by refusing to refer to their islands as the Falklands, instead using the Argentinian name for them. That snub blew up in his face, because he is so uneducated that he flubbed the snub by naming "Maldives" (islands thousands of miles away in another ocean) instead of the Argentinian name "Malvinas." Obama by now is well know for his childish snubs such as contemptuously placing his middle finger upon his nose when those he dislikes speak to him. The arrogance of Barack Obama knows no bounds.

Obama's Syria Speech comes to the President's Defense, of course: Steve Jobs did it all the time, and oh yeah, Snopes found a photograph of President George W. Bush doing it once and also another Republican President Gerald Ford (once also). So there! Ignore all those photographs of Obama with his shoes upon every piece of White House furniture he encounters, says Snopes.

Rewriting American History

Today, the Los Angeles Times is reporting that the Democrat party "led" the fight for civil rights in America. Above is the True Racist History of the Democratic Party. Next thing the Los Angeles Times will be claiming that Abraham Lincoln was a Democrat. Although it was the Republican Party that freed America's slaves, it is now the Democrat Party that owns 90% of all African Americans, a far higher percentage than ever existed of enslaved African Americans during the slavery era. Go figure. History repeats itself. Blacks, Democrats, and Republicans

This week African Americans called for a rally to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. Fine. There was an unbelievably large roster of speakers. Great! But ... Where was the only Black US Senator? Where was the only African American Supreme Court justice? Where was the first Black female Secretary of State? Where was the head of the Congress on Racial Equality? Where was Dr. King's Republican niece? Where was gratitude to the Republican Party that stood on the lines for Civil Rights when it was difficult and dangerous to do so? All most of us saw at the Rally was the official "Black Grievance Industry" led by the Reverends, Hollywood stars, sports celebrities, Union leaders, all of whom should be held responsible for pillaging America's largest cities and looting their treasuries, destroying the inner-city education systems and murdering with impunity African American children, both born and unborn. Oh, ... but there was our so-called "First Black" American President, fulfilling his role as the groom on every wedding cake and the beloved deceased at every funeral. There he was proclaiming to the assembled Black Americans that he, Barack Obama, was the "Dream" that Dr. Martin Luther King saw fifty years ago that day. Oh Glory!

Send ProFlowers, Send Disappointment

I am astonished that ProFlowers delivers their products to sick patients confined to hospital beds. The patient must await someone with a knife or box cutter to open the pasteboard container, and scissors and water to arrange the mediocre flower bud stems. Call a real florist who takes pride in cheering up the sick.

In fact, sending ProFlowers 'Get Well Wishes' is just as disappointing to a sick person at home, especially someone confined to bed or in a sling or cast. I speak my opinion as I have received ProFlowers in both situations above mentioned.

Here is a 2011 'testimonial' to ProFlowers on sending Romantic Greetings to someone you love: Great way to ship a cardboard box to the one you love! He describes spending $80.00 at ProFlowers, which would more than cover very decent, hand-arranged, personally-delivered flowers from a real, local florist. He wrote:
"I clicked on and purchased flowers based on their picture and that is what I should have received. That is what I was buying. Sending me a box of flowers and a vase is just unacceptable. It would be like ordering a Big Mac from the photo on the menu board at McDonalds and them bringing you a bun, a couple hamburger patties, and some condiments."
He further wonders about ProFlowers sending funeral flowers. Does anyone at the funeral ever remove the flowers from the ProFlowers box and arrange them?

Send ProFlowers only to those who know flower-arranging, and who love a challenge. There are a large number of national florists who will deliver professionally arranged flowers from your local florist, ready for the recipient to immediately enjoy. If you cannot afford that, then send a lovely card instead. Don't disappoint your recipient with ProFlowers.

Democracy's Demagogues

A demagogue is a political leader who rises up in a democracy by appealing to the emotions, prejudices, and ignorance of the less-educated, poorer segment of a population. Performing as a popular rabble-rouser, he uses rhetorical skills to garner power and promote his political motives. A Demagogue usually opposes thoughtful deliberations, instead using any national crises to advocate for immediate action which advances his long-range goal of increased power to himself. Demogogues demonize political opponents by accusing them of weakness, iniquitous motives and disloyalty to the nation.

Demagogues have appeared in democracies since ancient Athens (i.e. Cleone, Alcibiades) to the present day. Adolf Hitler, the Uber-demagogue who afflicted the entire modern world, was democratically elected by his people. Democracies were instituted to ensure freedom for all and place government authority in the hands of the people. The demagogue exploits democracy's fundamental weakness: that ultimate power is held by the people, with nothing preventing the people from giving that power to a demagogue. The demagogue often displays hypnotic power to appeal to the lowest common denominator of a large segment of the people, the poor, the uneducated and the ill-informed. Charming the masses, demagogues exploit the freedom secured under democracy to gain a level of power for themselves that overrides the rule of law, and undermines democracy.

We Have Seen the Enemy ...

ALL Participants In The Benghazi Cover-Up Should Be Punished including Barack Obama, his entire Administration at the time, and all the staff of: CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post and all major newspapers that refused to report or question the Benghazi cover up.

Benghazi mattered because it was "a question of character." That is correct. On a question of foreign policy or counterterrorism strategy, men of good faith can make the wrong decisions. But a failure of character corrodes the integrity of the state. In the face of overwhelming evidence and testimony to the contraray, the so-called journalists pictured above chose to treat the Benghazi cover-up as a Republican political talking point, not as the massive failure of character at the highest level of government, which it was and continues to be. That is why these particular journalists and others such as Candy Crowley deserve the enmity and contempt of freedom-loving Americans.

Hillary Questions

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s question was “What difference at this point does it make?” Those are words to remember forever, America, and not just about Benghazi.

America's Anti-blasphemy Laws

The First Amendment was the First Target of Obama's Benghazi narrative so that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula would become the First Person in American history to be jailed for violating the new Islamic anti-blasphemy laws. America now has a legal precedent in place. Thank you Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for making it all possible.

America's Ministry of Propaganda and Lies

PULEEZE Everyone! Drop the terms 'Liberal' and 'Mainstream Media' from your lexicon. Those you describe as 'Liberal' are no such thing as they are opposed to liberty unless it involves sex. They are Leftists! They believe in all the "isms" on the Left - Socialism, Marxism, Totalitarianism, Communism, Unionism. As for a "mainstream media" or MSM - it does not exist. There is the Mass Media which is a corrupt media, a state-run media, an Obama Media. The real name of America's Mass Media is the Ministry of Propaganda and Lies.

Mamas - Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Soldiers

They Sign Up to Fight, but instead are sacrificed.
The hearts and minds of the enemy are more valuable to this government than my son’s blood. This is submission and the cost of that submission on August 6 was my only son.” -- A Grieving Mother of a Brave American Seal speaking at the National Press Club, Washington DC
On 6 August 2011, a Boeing CH-47 Chinook military helicopter was shot down while transporting a quick reaction force attempting to reinforce an engaged unit of Army Rangers in Wardak province, west of Kabul, Afghanistan. All 38 people on board were killed, including 25 American special operations personnel, five United States Army National Guard and Army Reserve crewmen, seven Afghan commandos, and one Afghan interpreter, and a U.S. military working dog. It is considered the worst loss of U.S Military life in the Afghanistan campaign.

"Eighty per-cent of the U.S. deaths in Afghanistan over the past twelve years have occurred during the four years of the Obama administration. 15,000 US soldiers have come home injured or maimed during that same 4-year period" (compared to 2700 during the previous 8 years). -- Karen Vaughn

Read The Conservative Mom about the Press Conference today at the National Press Club, Washington DC and the treachery from American leaders that has cost so many of our young soldiers to lose their lives. President Obama and Vice President Biden, disclosed highly secret information on May 4, 2011, about the Navy Seal Team 6 that carried out the successful raid on Bin Laden’s compound resulting in his death. This disclosure put a retaliatory target on the backs of the fallen heroes, and they were shot down a few months later.

Just a 'Kid' With A Bomb

Just another kid aided by the U. S. Government to blow up Americans: “And now, after mastering the English language, learning how to build explosives and continuous planning to target the infidel Americans, it is time for Jihad.”

Department of Justice, 24 February 2011 A diary of Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, age 20, a citizen of Saudi Arabia and resident of Lubbock, showed that he had been planning to commit a terrorist attack in the United States for years.
One entry describes how Aldawsari sought and obtained a particular scholarship because it allowed him to come directly to the United State and helped him financially, which he said “will help tremendously in providing me with the support I need for Jihad.” The entry continues: “And now, after mastering the English language, learning how to build explosives and continuous planning to target the infidel Americans, it is time for Jihad.”

In another entry, Aldawsari allegedly wrote that he was near to reaching his goal and near to getting weapons to use against infidels and their helpers. He also listed a “synopsis of important steps” that included obtaining a forged U.S. birth certificate; renting a car; using different driver’s licenses for each car rented; putting bombs in cars and taking them to different places during rush hour; and leaving the city for a safe place.

According to the affidavit, Aldawsari conducted research on various targets and e-mailed himself information on these locations and people. One of the documents he sent himself, with the subject line listed as “Targets,” allegedly contained the names and home addresses of three American citizens who had previously served in the U.S. military and had been stationed for a time at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.

In another e-mail titled “NICE TARGETS 01,” Aldawsari allegedly sent himself the names of 12 reservoir dams in Colorado and California. In another e-mail to himself, titled “NICE TARGETS,” he listed two categories of targets: hydroelectric dams and nuclear power plants. On Feb. 6, 2011, the affidavit alleges, Aldawsari sent himself an e-mail titled “Tyrant’s House,” in which he listed the Dallas address for former President George W. Bush. The affidavit also alleges that Aldawsari conducted research that could indicate his consideration of the use of infant dolls to conceal explosives and possible targeting of a nightclub with an explosive concealed in a backpack.

The affidavit also alleges that Aldawsari created a blog in which he posted extremist messages. In one posting, he expressed dissatisfaction with current conditions of Muslims and vowed jihad and martyrdom. “You who created mankind….grant me martyrdom for Your sake and make jihad easy for me only in Your path,” he wrote.

Revolution is Here

Antonio Gramsci, born 1891, was a journalist and one of Italy's most influential writers. In his writings, Gramsci accepted Marx's assertion that perpetual struggle between the ruling class and the subordinate working class was the driving mechanism that ultimately made social progress possible. But he rejected the notion that direct physical coercion by police and armies was the method of choice for achieving and maintaining victory in that struggle. Rather, Gramsci held that if a population at large could, for a period of time, be properly indoctrinated with a new “ideology”—specifically, a set of values, beliefs, and worldviews consistent with Marxist principles—a Marxist system could be sustained indefinitely and without coercion or force. In short, Gramsci held that Marxists needed to focus their efforts on gaining “hegemony” (i.e., control or dominion) over the core beliefs of non-Marxist societies; to change the population's understanding of what constitutes basic common sense.

Such a development, said Gramsci, would never occur naturally as a result of some inexorable, unseen, “historical laws” that Marx had accepted as axiomatic. Rather, Gramsci called for Marxists to actively spread their ideology in a gradual, incremental, stealth manner, by infiltrating all existing societal institutions and embedding it, largely without being noticed, in the popular mind. This, he emphasized, was to be an evolutionary, rather than a revolutionary, process that, over a period of decades, would cause an ever-increasing number of people to embrace Marxist thought, until at last it achieved hegemony. Gramsci described this approach as a “long march through the institutions.” Among the key institutions that would need to be infiltrated were the cinema and theater, the schools and universities, the seminaries and churches, the media, the courts, the labor unions, and at least one major political party. According to Gramsci, these institutions constituted society's “superstructure,” which, if captured and reshaped by Marxists, could lead the masses to abandon capitalism of their own volition, entirely without resistance or objection.

In this regard, Gramsci’s views bore a great resemblance to those of the famed godfather of community organizing, Saul Alinsky, who likewise viewed Revolution as a slow, patient process requiring the stealth penetration of existing institutions that could then be transformed from within.

Gramsci saw clearly how to produce socialism. America, like all failed nations before her, has embraced it. Antonio Gramsci
Identification of Authoritarian Societies:
  • cult of personality 
  • populist appeals to emotion and nationalism
  • determination to viciously eliminate political opponents
  • blatant disregard for individual freedoms
  • government control of the media
  • theft of private property
  • taking political advantage of any crisis ("Never let a good crisis go to waste.")
  • manipulation of children as political tools
  • attacks on free trade
  • propagation of "Big Lies"
  • ubiquitous use of political symbols
  • an ostentatious elite class possessing rights and privileges unavailable to others. 

This is why Obama, Hitler, and Lenin are conflated.

Coexist Symbol

COEXIST is the symbol for the American Multicultural Fascism Movement.
"A fascist is one whose lust for money or power is combined with such an intensity of intolerance toward those of other races, parties, classes, religions, cultures, regions or nations as to make him ruthless in his use of deceit or violence to attain his ends."

"The American fascists are most easily recognized by their deliberate perversion of truth and fact. They use every opportunity to impugn democracy. ... They claim to be super-patriots, but they would destroy every liberty guaranteed by the Constitution. They demand free enterprise, but are the spokesmen for monopoly and vested interest. Their final objective toward which all their deceit is directed is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjection." Vice President Henry Wallace, April 1944.
You Will COEXIST or Else!
  •  Multiculturalism = Laws against Free Speech. 
  •  Multiculturalism = No Trial by Jury. 
  •  Multiculturalism = No Freedom. 
  •  Multiculturalism = Truth-Telling is criminal. 
  •  Multiculturalism = Fascism.

Beyonce Living High off of Cuban Slavery

Black Americans have already forgotten about the Reverend Martin Luther King and his Dreams. These days they are celebrating and cheering Beyonce and Jay-Z and their extravagant lifestyles which involve travel to an apartheid nation and the exploitation of Cuban Black slaves.

Beyonce Carter, an American music superstar is currently vacationing in Cuba with her husband, music mogul Jay-Z. As very special friends and contributors to Barack Obama and the Democrats, they are entitled to VIP guest status of the apartheid dictatorship Cuba. Beyonce is enjoying luxuries offered in Cuba only to foreigners, from the labor of Afro-Cuban slaves owned by the Castro regime. Beyonce's fans have been enthralled with stories and photographs of the beautiful couple celebrating their wedding anniversary while strolling the streets of Havana. Their huge entourage of bodyguards and handlers are courtesy of the Castro dictatorship. Except for a few "mean-spirited" Republican Cuban-Americans, there has been no outcry over their incredibly insensitive decision to vacation in Cuba and provide support and publicity for a racist regime that would have imprisoned her and her outspoken husband if they had had the misfortune of being born Afro-Cuban instead of African-American.

Beyonce's 'Ignorant and Insulting' Cuban Vacation

GLEICHSCHALTUNG is translated to English as "forcible coordination."

Gleichschaltung has historically been utilized to bring about adherence to specific doctrines and beliefs and to coordinate the lives of a nation's citizenry. "Forcible Coordination" is now successfully underway in America with the ascendency of Abortion on Demand, Gun Control and Homosexual Marriage. Those Americans who do not accept the Government's stance are cast out as Haters, Homophobes, Racists, Bigots, Anti-woman. Religious and cultural institutions in disagreement with the government's goals will be destroyed.

In the next few years expect to see Forcible Coordination implemented to coerce Americans to accept the harvesting of eggs and sperm from aborted fetuses as a loving concept to provide children for same-sex couples unable to naturally conceive and enjoy families. Citizens and Churches expressing revulsion at the creation of babies whose mothers were never born, will, once again, be labeled Haters, Bigots, Anti-gay, Anti-child, etcetera.

PAST IS PROLOGUE - From 1933 to 1937, Germany implemented Gleichschaltung to successfully eliminate all organizations that could potentially influence people against National Socialism, including trade unions and political parties. Critics of the German government's agenda were suppressed, intimidated or murdered. Influence of the churches was assailed with establishment of the Ministry of Ecclesiastical Affairs. Organizations that the government could not eliminate, such as the education system, came under government's direct control. Hello Gleichschaltung. Welcome Totalitarianism.

What is Cyprus and Why Care?

What and where is a tiny island called Cyprus and why should we care?
Long ago and far away there was a very old Austrian bank named the Imperial Royal Privileged Austrian Credit-Institute for Commerce and Industry. In Vienna where the bank was based, it was known as "The Creditanstalt." It had been founded in 1855, by the ancient Rothschild family and it became the largest bank of Austria-Hungary. On May 11th 1931, The Creditanstalt declared bankruptcy! This event, in a far off land, in the early twentieth century, resulted in a global financial crisis and ultimately the bank failures of America's Great Depression.

Warning from Lincoln, 1838

"At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it?-- Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never! -- All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years. At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide." -- Abraham Lincoln, Address Before the Young Men's Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois, January 27, 1838.

What Is Fascism?

FascesDefining Fascism is most difficult, as there is great disagreement amongst the experts. The term was coined in 1922, when Mussolini, the Italian dictator who was initially a Marxist, came to realize that Italy could not obtain foreign investment as a Communist nation. So, employing a word derived from the Roman "Fasces," which meant a bound bundle of sticks with a protruding ax, symbolizing unity of  people under authority of the state, Italy's Benito Mussolini invented Fascism.

During the twentieth century, the European nations of Italy, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Germany, plus Argentina in Latin America each adopted a Fascist-style of government. Mostly these nations preserved private property as a means to serve the state. Their economies were put under control of a government bureaucracy that set wages, prices, and profits. Although large industries were forced to comply, the companies were rewarded with elimination of competition and guaranteed financial returns.

Characteristics defining a Fascist state include:
  • A charismatic dictator 
  • Disdain and elimination of parliamentary systems 
  • Oppression of human rights, including suppression of dissent 
  • Collectivism by ethnicity, class and political creeds 
  • A "progressive" agenda to benefit workers 
  • Extreme nationalism
  • Pervasive propaganda
  • Militaristic government (usually).

Mining Outer Space

From Planetary Resources:
There are near-limitless numbers of asteroids and more being discovered every year. More than 1,500 are as easy to reach as the Moon and are in similar orbits as Earth. Asteroids are filled with precious resources, everything from water to platinum. Harnessing valuable minerals from a practically infinite source will provide stability on Earth, increase humanity’s prosperity, and help establish and maintain human presence in space.

Asteroids are the low-hanging fruit of the Solar System. There are close to 9,000 near-Earth asteroids, and nearly 1,000 more are discovered every year.

Is There Culture in the South?

The shooting war is over; ... now we're in a cultural war for the heart and soul of the South and for America

From Battle over the past rages on in an evolving South
Even the word "South," in some quarters, has become a slur - a convenient repository of national guilt over the exploitation of Africans in the Cotton Belt a century and a half ago. Beyond Confederate flags coming down from statehouses, more-mundane symbols are increasingly being questioned on the local level: in town halls, college campuses, and even cemetery committees. It's part of a deepening homogenization of Southern culture that's causing anger and resentment among many in a proud region with perhaps 65 million people who consider themselves Southerners. Some observers see a note of irony in the growing suppression of conservative Southern memorials at a time when old Confederate values like militarism, chivalry, gentility, and religiosity are gaining political prominence. It's a lesson, they say, in how a rebellious American region maintains its influence beneath pressure to rescind its mottoes and murals. "The shooting war is over, but ... we're engaged in a cultural war for the heart and soul of the South and for America, too," says William Lathem, spokesman for the Southern Heritage PAC in Atlanta.

Reincarnated Politicos?

Is Sarah Palin a Latter-day Tecumseh?
I postulate that Obama and his associates are reincarnated Nazis. I also believe that it's possible some Republicans are reincarnated founding fathers. Of course, that too, is a matter of conjecture and some critics would say political bias. However, if Obama and his associates are reincarnated Nazis, it may explain their program to turn America into a fascist nation. On the other hand, if Republicans were once the founding fathers, it may explain their aversion to the Democrat's program and their desire to maintain the principles upon which this country was founded.

Today's State of the Union

Will President Barack Obama tell the truth tonight?

* Labor-force participation at a three DECADE low.
* Poverty higher than at any time since the 1930s.
* Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis reports long-term unemployment at highest levels since World War II.
* Average length of joblessness doubled from 20 weeks (last 3 recessions) to 40 weeks under Barack Obama.
* Health-insurance premiums are going up, not down as promised.

* Barack Obama added more $$ to federal debt than all previous administrations combined since George Washington.
* A shrinking private sector is drowning in regulations.
