The “progressive” Agenda for America

May 22, 2013

Despite voluminous amounts of saccharine coated “progressive” rhetoric to the contrary, today’s “progressives” do not care about “the little guy”, women, children, or minorities of any shape, color, creed, form or substance.

cultural maxismTheir method is to surreptitiously use cultural Marxism, critical theory and political correctness in combination with gradual inevitability to create divided, hyphenated special interest victim groups. Once those groups have been created, the next step is to inflame those groups with hate-filled red herring and straw-man hyperbole in hopes that the under-educated, under-informed and/or fully indoctrinated members of those hyphenated special interest victim groups will vote against Conservative Americans who have been targeted for character assassination.

“Targeted for character assassination?” one might ask?

Witness the multiple, repeated violations committed by the Internal Revenue Service, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security on behalf of the “progressive” agenda driven Barack Hussein Obama administration. All aggressively committed against Tea Party Patriot groups, religious groups, assorted members of the news media, private donors to Conservative political campaigns and others perceived by members of the White House and their political/philosophical brethren as enemies of the “progressive” agenda.

Additionally, four Americans were left to die in Benghazi because the Obama administration neglected to respond appropriately to terrorist cultural-marxism-destructionthreat warnings from their own people prior to the Commander in Chief being absent without leave during a seven hour battle. Apparently it was more important for Obama to get his beauty rest before flying the next day to a fund raising event in Las Vegas where he could once again reassure his deep pocketed “progressive” allies that the threat from Islam was finished because Seal Team 6 killed Osama bin Laden.

Never mind that Islam has been a threat to Western Civilization since the seventh century AD and continues to be a threat to every country, culture or faith that refuses to conform to their doctrine.

Not only were reprehensible actions willfully taken by Obama, as well as card carrying members of the “progressive” movement within his administration; orchestrated cover ups, stonewalling of issues, denial of facts and revolving, shifting and changing stories have been employed in continued attempts to derail ongoing investigations.

The true goal “progressives” hope to attain is their long lusted after dream of unopposed, perpetual control over the American population.

“Evidence?” one may ask?

Try Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Welfare, Food Stamps and Obamacare.

ObamaMarxism-symbolIf unopposed, perpetual control over America is not the “progressive” goal, why the rush by “progressives” to grant amnesty to predominantly under-educated and under-informed illegal aliens who are thereby ideal for recruitment into a “progressive” hyphenated special interest victim group? Why are illegal aliens freely allowed access to America’s big government “progressive” “entitlement” programs like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Welfare, Food Stamps and Obamacare, despite their unlawful status if the desired end result is not to incorporate them into the “progressive” political agenda?

Using a combination of the Fabian Socialist strategy of gradual inevitability and Frankfurt School tactics of cultural Marxism, critical theory and political correctness, today’s “progressives” softly whisper sweet little lies that sound oh so good into the ears of their low income, low information “progressive” hyphenated special interest victim group voter base, hoping they will continue to fall for sugar coated “progressive” rubbish.

All in the hopes of successfully imposing a European socio-economic class structure upon America…while casting themselves (of course) in the role of the superior upper-class ruling elite.

Can you say the Soviet Politburo?

The end results of adhering to “progressive” philosophy and employing “progressive” policies will be an end to America’s centuries old traditions of individual liberty and the right to own private property. American Citizens will experience dramatically increased costs of living, measurably lowered living standards and ultimately, national bankruptcy and an end to national sovereignty.

Instead of being the land of the free and the home of the brave, America will be at the mercy of a self-imagined, self-appointed oligarchy of Slaverysupposed intellectual superiors who achieved their position of perpetual power through the most egregious display of selfishness and ruthlessness in American history. In the name of social or economic “justice” “progressives” will dismantle the Constitution and reverse the gains made by individuals and society that came about as a result of the American Revolution.

History will show that once they persuaded enough unsuspecting Americans to trust them, progressives” seized private assets and outlawed private property.  It will be because when “progressives” looked into network television cameras and lied about having the best interests of America at heart, too many Americans bought it.  It will be because when “progressives” took an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, swearing on the Bible and imploring “So help me, God,” too many Americans believed they actually meant it.

Future generations reading the story of American history will be left to ponder: How could Americans have been so wrong, so mistaken and made such poor choices?  Why would America abandon a highly successful blueprint for society, economy and governance after centuries of their own history demonstrated the success of that structure?  How could Americans have been so stupid as to believe that the model and methods responsible for their success had suddenly become what was wrong with America?

It has taken a century for the “progressive” use of Fabian strategy and Frankfurt tactics to bring America to this point; a tipping point.

The damage will not be repaired overnight.  It will take longer than one, two or three election cycles to return America to its original, correct course.  Americans demanding immediate gratification will long suffer unbearable periods of dissatisfaction.

Is that insidious “progressive” smile one of approval for the acts of God fearing, freedom loving Americans? Do not be deceived, it is a trap. Do not be betrayed by their words. Instead, ask how their glorious words agree with acts committed by the Internal Revenue Service, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security. Are such actions necessary in a land where government derives its just powers from the consent of the governed? Do not be fooled. These are acts which will lead to subjugation and slavery. These are the acts to which tyrants resort. Why were these actions taken, if not to force Americans into submission? Can intellectually honest people assign any other possible motives to them?

If Americans hope to save themselves from the chains of “progressivism,” they must be willing to fight. Will they live in liberty, or will America die?

Revolution is coming.

“progressive” Origins

May 5, 2013

teddy-roosevelt-laugh-350x233The “progressive” movement in America first appeared during the late 19th century in response to so called “robber barons” such as Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, and J.P. Morgan. The “progressives” saw what to them was unbridled capitalism being practiced by these men and deemed it to be injurious to the well-being of the masses. Early “progressives” included Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Teddy Roosevelt and Howard Taft were Republicans. Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt were Democrats.Taft

The American “progressive” movement leaned heavily upon and was greatly influenced by the Fabian Socialist Society in England. The Fabian Socialists contribution to the “progressive” movement was the idea that their goals could be achieved most successfully if their society worked to re-mold the world nearer to their heart’s desire gradually, using tactics of harassment and attrition, and striking full force only when their moment was at hand. This strategy was employed by their namesake, the Roman general Fabius Maximus, who used it in combat against the superior military forces of Hannibal and the Carthaginians.

woodrowwilsonThis strategy, also known as gradual inevitability, has been one of the cornerstones of the “progressive” movement in America. Instead of attempting to over-reach for their long term goal to subjugate the American public in one fell swoop, thereby ensuring that the electorate of a country founded upon the pillars of freedom and liberty would roundly and soundly reject their ideas, they decided to take on a seemingly insurmountable task in small steps that were both more easily hidden and more easily digested by the Republic.

The federal income tax began in 1913, courtesy of “progressives” William Howard Taft and Woodrow Wilson. Thanks to the unyielding activism of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who browbeat the United States Supreme Court into accepting his legislation against their better judgment, Social Security was launched in 1935. Medicare and Medicaid came into being in the year 1965 courtesy of Lyndon Baines Johnson and his Great Society agenda. Thanks to the concerted efforts of numerous “progressives” in both houses of Congress, who reached secretive backroom deal in the dead of night, twisted arms and employed the parliamentary procedure known as reconciliation in the Senate, they, along with the Barack Hussein Obama White House were able to pass “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” commonly known as Obamacare, which was signed into law in 2010.

This is an accurate description of a gradual “progression” toward the inevitable goal of an expanded government taking increasing control over the lives of individuals.

The next powerful influence on the “progressive” movement in America was the Frankfurt School.franklin-delano-roosevelt

The Frankfurt School was an openly Communist group formed in 1923 during the pre-Nazi Germany Weimar Republic. After Adolph Hitler came to power in 1933 the Frankfurt School knew that if they stayed in Germany Hitler would kill them for being Communists. They then fled Germany to escape that fate and were welcomed into the United States by “progressive” President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

From the Frankfurt school, “progressives” in America assimilated the concepts of cultural Marxism, critical theory and political correctness. Cultural Marxism, critical theory and political correctness were the driving force behind the 1960s cultural-revolution in the United States.

Cultural Marxism is an offshoot of Marxism that maintains that human behavior results from culture, instead of heredity or race. Cultural Marxists promoted the idea of racially organizing non-whites in concert while asserting that for white people, race does not exist. Cultural Marxists promoted the impairment of white people, race-based affirmative action, globalization, coded speech, censorship, diversity, anti-Western education, dysfunctional sexual norms, the mass immigration of Third World populations into Western countries, multiculturalism over a nation rooted in common ancestry, and elevating non-Western religions above Western religions. Cultural Marxism advocates the idea that whites, instead of giving birth to white babies, should marry interracially or adopt non-white children.

Critical Theory is destructive criticism of the main elements of Western culture: Christianity, morality, capitalism, conservatism, authority, family, patriarchy, hierarchy, tradition, sexual restraint, loyalty, patriotism, nationalism, heredity, ethnocentrism and convention.

Political correctness was and remains another key element. The basis of political correctness is: when addressing the general public, present your beliefs attractively. It’s a matter of being “sensitive” to other people. Use words such as “tolerance” and “diversity,” asking: “Why can’t we all just get along?”

Political correctness in the USA was championed by Herbert Marcuse. Marcuse became one of the main gurus of the 1960s adolescent sexual revolution. He was the one who coined the expression “make love, not war.”

By using the Fabian Socialist strategy of gradual inevitability in combination with the tactics of cultural Marxism, critical theory and political correctness, “progressives” in America discovered a prescription with which to lethally poison America’s political system, academic atmosphere, mass media information delivery infra-structure and popular culture while attacking America’s exceptional values and long standing traditions.

The “progressive”

May 3, 2013

The “progressive” does not care about Americans.we-the-progressives

They do not care about the dim bulb, buck toothed flyover American’s life. They do not care about the Liberties of slope headed inferiors who bitterly cling to their Bibles and guns. Nor are “progressives” concerned with how Neanderthal hayseeds define the pursuit of happiness.

What “progressives” care about is ruling over the people who populate a country called the United States of America.

Note: ruling over, not governing.

The underlying, unflinching, insistent “progressive” belief is that Americans unknowingly adhere to a fatally flawed, unjust, reprehensible system of government that must be replaced by one envisioned by the superior intellect embodied within the “progressive” mind.

To their bone marrow the “progressive” believes that the American free market capitalist system is patently unfair to the masses. Most do not enjoy the privileges of those who rise to the top. The disparity of income distribution is “unfair” and must be rectified through “progressive” economic reform. In the mind’s eye of a “progressive, the key to a more equitable system lies in “progressive” taxation upon those who succeed, and a redistribution of their wealth to those who have been “less fortunate.”

The success of such a scheme depends upon the existence of a government big enough and strong enough to take what it wants from the successful and give it to “the needy.” The flaw in the system that “progressives” never explain to “the needy” is that a government big enough to give them everything they need is also big enough to take it away from them…especially if that government is big enough and powerful enough to force the successful, who achieved their status through hard work, discipline, intelligence, resourcefulness and adaptability to surrender their wealth to the collective.

To the “progressive” mind, the United States Constitution is an outdated document written by selfish, rich, white slave holders that has long since outlived its usefulness. It is beyond repair. The only solution to such a predicament is to “progress” beyond the Constitution.

Of course, it matters not to “progressives” that the U.S. Constitution, as written by America’s founders, is completely capable of revisiting issues that remained unresolved at the time of its ratification by the original thirteen states. Any child enrolled in a halfway decent political science class knows that the Constitution has been amended twenty seven times.

The “progressive” political modus operandi is: The ends justify the means.

There is nothing Liberal about “progressives.” Were the great William F. Buckley Jr. alive today, it is not hard to imagine that his famous quote: “Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views” might well have been assigned to those who now label themselves as “progressives.”

This is the danger America is facing in the twenty first century. To say it is an existential threat is neither hyperbole nor fabrication.

Those who once described themselves as Liberals, have deliberately chosen to openly pattern their political ambitions and behaviors after the political ambitions and behaviors practiced by early twentieth century “progressives.”

It Can Happen Here

March 18, 2013

For years now, the Euro zone has been experiencing difficulty absorbing the costs of bailing out relatively small countries with relatively small economies that have relatively small amounts of debt.

Most recently, Euro zone leaders agreed to fund a bailout of Cyprus with a deal that includes taxing private bank deposits.  The deal to fund 10 Cyprusbillion euros worth of rescue loans for Cyprus imposes a 6.75 to 9.9 percent tax on those with cash in Cyprus banks.  Without the EU bailout Cyprus cannot avoid default, but the unexpected and unprecedented decision to take money from private depositors fueled a sense of crisis across the euro zone and led to a run on Cyprus banks by depositors.

The Cyprus deal could lead savers in similarly indebted countries like Greece, Italy and Spain to withdraw money from their banks, leading to a regional economic crisis that would affect bond and stock markets world-wide.

Imagine the difficulty faced by the world’s economy when the United States of America can no longer finance its debt.

It can happen here.

Greece recorded a government debt to GDP of 170.60 percent in 2011.  In 2011, the United States government debt to GDP ratio was about 100 percent.  Should the United States continue deficit spending at current rates, the United States will soon surpass Greece in debt to GDP ratio.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2013/mar/18/cyprus-bailout-markets

What the United States government must do is stop spending money it does not have.

Before that will happen, American taxpaying voters must be made aware of the realities of the situation.

For so long as American taxpayers are unaware of the danger that looms just over the horizon, their concern will be focused on maintaining current levels of government payouts for Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.  Until American voters understand that not restructuring big government socialist programs will bankrupt the U.S., they will not vote for the necessary revisions.  They will continue to vote for the status quo.

The truth about the danger American debt poses to the U.S. economy is not being disclosed by “progressives;” be they politicians, media pundits, college professors, Hollywood producers or government bureaucrats…including but not limited to winners of the Nobel Prize for economics.

It does not take a Nobel Prize winner to see that whole sections of the European economy have governments whose budgets are in horrible shape and teetering on the brink of true insolvency.  It does not take a genius IQ to realize that the cause of debt in those countries is big government spending money it does not have on socialist programs to support citizens dependent upon government for their existence.

It also does not take a Nobel Prize winner or a genius IQ to find information that makes it past the “progressive” filter NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, The New York Times, The Huffington Post, The Los Angeles Times, Time Magazine, Newsweek and the rest of the “progressive” Party Pravda use to misinform the American public.

All it takes is a desire to learn the truth and a willingness to search beyond the filtered information used by “progressives” to nudge people into believing what “progressives” wish them to believe.

The last time America faced an existential threat during WWII, Americans fought and died by the thousands on foreign lands.

Is asking Americans to view the “mainstream media” with a skeptical eye and seek out second opinions now too much to ask?

Love. Early American Style.

Orwellian Inauguration 2013

January 21, 2013

Except for the date, 1984, George Orwell had it right.

Replete with doublespeak, innuendos, and outright falsehoods, the Inauguration speech given by Barack Hussein Obama to launch his second term was a verbal déjà vu of the 2009 $787 billion stimulus package…a wish list for “progressives.”

The full blown Orwellian hypocrisy was on clear display before Obama even opened his mouth.1984george-orwell

Beginning with an invocation where the United States was describes as “One nation…indivisible…with liberty and justice for all.”  What happened to “under God” in that invocation?  When does one give an invocation at a presidential inauguration where the words of the American Pledge of Allegiance are intentionally edited to omit the word “under God”, and why?

That this glaring omission would be immediately followed by a magnificent rendition of The Battle Hymn of the Republic was truly ironic.

Then the Oval Office occupant, who happens to be the most politicized, divisive, partisan human in Washington DC, who has openly launched multi-pronged assaults upon the U.S. Constitution, publically committed perjury by taking the oath of office.

Then, the utter hypocrisy in his inaugural address was spoken before a gathering roughly one third the size of the 2009 inaugural crowd.

Obama preached that: “Together, we discovered that a free market only thrives when there are rules to ensure competition and fair play.”

Who decides what fair play is?  Who decides what rules will ensure competition?

The American free market Capitalist system and free people making decisions that are in their best interests ensure competition and define fair play, not government interference.

He continued: “For we, the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. We believe that America’s prosperity must rest upon the broad shoulders of a rising middle class. We know that America thrives when every person can find independence and pride in their work; when the wages of honest labor liberate families from the brink of hardship.”

A people, freed from the shackles of needless government involvement, built America into the most inventive, prosperous, generous and powerful nation in world history.  No matter how long or how often the Marxist mantra of equality is repeated, those recitations do not change that a people free to pursue their happiness within a free market Capitalist system have a better chance of achieving prosperity than do unionized government sector clerks working for a federal ministry.

Obama pronounced: “For we remember the lessons of our past, when twilight years were spent in poverty, and parents of a child with a disability had nowhere to turn. We do not believe that in this country, freedom is reserved for the lucky, or happiness for the few. We recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us, at any time, may face a job loss, or a sudden illness, or a home swept away in a terrible storm. The commitments we make to each other – through Medicare, and Medicaid, and Social Security – these things do not sap our initiative; they strengthen us. They do not make us a nation of takers; they free us to take the risks that make this country great.”

When twilight years were spent in poverty?  Before big government socialist programs, which now account for over fifty percent of federal spending by a government that is over $16 trillion in debt and which borrows over forty percent of every dollar spent, one’s twilight years were spent living with family, who took better care of their elders with far more love and concern than is possible from an impersonal government bureaucracy where the elderly individual is little more than a number.

When parents of a child with a disability had nowhere to turn?  Disabled children are loved and cared for by their families.  When families looked for help, they looked to churches and private charities.  They did not look to a bureaucrat more concerned with their own salaries and benefits than with the public they allegedly “served.”

obama speechHe went on: “We, the people, still believe that our obligations as Americans are not just to ourselves, but to all posterity. We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires, and crippling drought, and more powerful storms. The path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. But America cannot resist this transition; we must lead it. We cannot cede to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industries – we must claim its promise. That is how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national treasure – our forests and waterways; our croplands and snowcapped peaks. That is how we will preserve our planet, commanded to our care by God. That’s what will lend meaning to the creed our fathers once declared.”

This is where another item on the “progressive” laundry list comes to light.  Here Obama reveals that based upon the junk science propagandizing “climate change” mythology, the disastrous waste of money on green energy companies and the lining of his political supports’ pockets at taxpayer’s expense will both continue unabated.

A true display of “progressive” doublespeak followed: “We will defend our people and uphold our values through strength of arms and rule of law.”

Through the strength of arms?  This coming from a politician who, despite the fact that Islamofascists are waging war on America, is bent on retreating from the battlefield, unilateral nuclear disarmament and reducing national defense?

Rule of law?  This from a fringe leftist career politician who chooses which laws his Attorney General enforces based upon their partisan political agenda?  Who ignores legally passed laws while violating the U.S. Constitution by dictating his own through Executive Order?

On foreign policy the newspeak was on crystal clear display: “America will remain the anchor of strong alliances in every corner of the globe; and we will renew those institutions that extend our capacity to manage crisis abroad, for no one has a greater stake in a peaceful world than its most powerful nation.”

America will remain the anchor of strong alliances?  This from someone who upon taking office shipped the bust of Winston Churchill back to Great Britain and who displays open disdain for Israel and its leaders?  Who continues to put Israel at existential risk by insisting on negotiating with an inflexible Iranian theocracy committed to Israel’s destruction?  Who rushed the withdrawal from Iraq, thereby squandering the blood, treasure and sacrifice spent to create another ally in the Middle East, and is rushing withdrawal from Afghanistan, risking that the Taliban and Al Qaeda will fill the vacuum?

Then, a true display of the “progressive” agenda for the next four years was displayed with: “For our journey is not complete until our wives, our mothers, and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts.  Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law – for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. Our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. Our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity; until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce rather than expelled from our country. Our journey is not complete until all our children, from the streets of Detroit to the hills of Appalachia to the quiet lanes of Newtown, know that they are cared for, and cherished, and always safe from harm.”truth-george-orwell-1984

Our wives, mothers and daughters earn a living equal to their efforts?  This coming from a White House who’s underpaying of female staff is public knowledge?

Promoting gay marriage, attacking voter registration laws, amnesty through immigration reform and disarmament of Americans through gun control will be on the Oval Office check list.

Then the ultimate in hypocrisy was revealed: “For now decisions are upon us, and we cannot afford delay. We cannot mistake absolutism for principle, or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate.”

We cannot mistake absolutism for principle?  This from quite possibly the most inflexible absolutist in American political history?  The real crisis lies in “progressives” mistaking Americans standing on American principles for absolutism.

We cannot substitute spectacle for politics?  This from a non-stop political campaigner who is the poster child for photo-ops?

We cannot treat name-calling as reasoned debate?  This from a rigid political ideolog who lectures and scolds his political opponents over their choice of words but remains absolutely silent when his political brethren use far more incendiary, unreasoned and divisive words?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/barackobama/9816372/Barack-Obama-Inaugural-Address-2013-full-text.html

There was nothing about the economy.  There was virtually nothing about job creation, deficit or debt reduction.

This was a declaration that once again the era of big government is at hand.

Unlike the great inaugural speeches of the past, this was not a call for national unity, but a call to arms for his “progressive” allies.

With this speech Barack Hussein Obama ensures that America will remain the divided States.  He confirms that compromise in any way shape or form is at the bottom of his list of priorities.  As was the case in his first term, the destruction of his political opposition remains his primary concern.

Free Michigan

December 11, 2012

Michigan is now the 24th right to work state in America.

Public workers in Michigan are now free to work without being forced to pay legalized extortion to unions as a precondition of their employment.MI protest

As union labor gathered by the thousands, Michigan’s legislature voted approval Tuesday to “right-to-work” legislation.  The House and the Senate both approved the measure, making membership and payment of union dues optional.  Governor Rick Snyder has promised to sign it into law.

More than 12,000 protestors from around the Midwest gathered for the vote.  Union thugs dissatisfied with the vote attacked the Americans for Prosperity tent, tore it down and slashed it apart with knives while members of AFP were still inside.

Union promised there will be more to come.

Douglas GeissFrom the floor of the Michigan House of Representatives, Democratic State Representative State Representative Douglas Geiss threatened “There will be blood.”

Barack Obama described the legislation thusly:  “These so called right-to-work laws, they don’t have anything to do with economics, they have to do with politics.”

This is coming from someone whose entire position on the so-called fiscal cliff negotiations in Washington DC has nothing to do with economics.  It is all about politics.  It is all about destroying the Republican Party and promoting a patently un-American fringe Marxist ideology.

Michigan’s right-to-work law makes it illegal to require financial support of a union as a condition of employment.  When it comes to recruiting businesses to Michigan it will make the state more competitive.  Critics claim it will cripple the ability of unions to fund their political policy objectives.

Unions are forgetting some fundamental principles.  No one should be forced against their will to join a union or to have their paycheck skimmed by unions.  If someone disagrees with their politics, no one should be forced to fund union politics.

For “progressives”, who lay claim to sole possession of concern for working people, forcing Americans who object to their political policy objectives to fund then as a precondition of employment is hypocrisy in the most classic sense.

Hypocrisy, when it comes to speaking about “progressives”, is par for the course.

It is morally right for workers to have the power of decision where it comes to supporting unions financially.  People should have the right to work without being forced to pay union dues.  Americans who want to work should not be enslaved by unions.

Revolution is coming.

Line in the Sand

November 20, 2012

Barack Obama stopped in Burma, which he insisted as a “diplomatic courtesy” on calling Myanmar (perhaps pronouncing Pakistan Pahhhkeeeestaan no longer makes him cool enough for the UN), where he managed to repeatedly mispronounce the name of Aung San Suu Kyi, the Nobel winner who led the fight for a free, democratic Burma.  If that was not embarrassing enough for America, Obama also managed to botch the name of President Thein Sein, his official Burma host.

Were any corpse-men around to carry off members of the press?  Those members of the institutionalized “progressive” left who were mortified and humiliated by each faux pas?

You can bet NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN failed to report the botching…The New York Times too.

Had such a diplomatic faux pas been committed by a Conservative president the “mainstream media” would be screaming their outrage and leaping on the ridicule bandwagon.

http://www.whitehousedossier.com/2012/11/19/obama-repeatedly-mispronounces-aung-san-suu-kyi/

Of course the New York Times was too busy distorting the truth with Paul Krugman’s Op-Ed fairytale “The Twinkie Manifesto” to accurately report the failings of their dear, beloved leader.

Krugman’s mind, displaying clear symptoms of acute “progressive thinking” disorder, made a remarkable leap to the conclusion that Conservative orthodoxy believes the pathway to prosperity lies in demeaning workers and coddling the rich.

He dismissed the Simpson-Bowles Commission for accurately concluding that lower tax rates lead to lower deficits.  Overlooking historical evidence to the contrary, Krugman concluded the healthy American economy during the 1950s was a product of the 91 percent tax rate on top bracket income earners.  He fostered the preposterous notion that the high-tax rates of the decade that followed World War II were responsible for America’s economic growth.

The economic growth of the 1950s was due primarily to the fact that during World War II the rest of the industrialized world had been bombed into rubble, especially their manufacturing capacities.  While the rest of the world was recovering from that condition, America enjoyed a decade of prosperity because American industries had no serious competition.  The world bought American goods because nobody else made much of anything worth buying.  With such conditions leading to an American economic boom, the economy was able to sustain itself and grow despite the unnaturally high tax rates imposed on business; rates that had financed the titanic war effort.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/19/opinion/krugman-the-twinkie-manifesto.html?ref=opinion&_r=0

Krugman’s economic insanity was matched by that of Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, who said on Friday that Congress should remove legal limits on government borrowing and lift America’s debt limit to infinity.

During an interview on Bloomberg TV, when asked by “Political Capital” host Al Hunt Geithner if “we ought to just eliminate the debt ceiling,” Geithner replied: “Oh, absolutely.”

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/treasury-secretary-geithner-lift-debt-limit-infinity

So, according to Paul Krugman of The New York Times and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, America taxing businesses into oblivion and eliminating all restraints on spending will lead to economic prosperity.

The “progressive” insanity does not stop at America’s shores.

In Congress the Obama administration is on the ropes for having administration appointees change the CIA talking points regarding the 9/11 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.

According to Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), chairman of the House intelligence committee, “There was not an intelligence failure.  The intelligence community had it right, and they had it right early. What happened was it worked its way up through the system of the so-called talking points, which everyone refers to, and then it went up to what’s called a deputy’s committee…It went to the so-called deputy’s committee, that’s populated by appointees from the administration.  That’s where the narrative changed.  And so how that thing got back to (Susan) Rice, I think, is probably another question.”

Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), the vice chair of the Senate intelligence committee, said that he had tried to discover who changed the talking points:

“At the hearing we had on Thursday and Friday, we had every leader of the intelligence community there, including folks from the State Department, the FBI — everybody there was asked, ‘Do you know who made these changes?’ And nobody knew. The only entity that reviewed the talking points that was not there was the White House.  So, you know, I don’t know whether — what they said yesterday is exactly right or not. But, what I do know is that every member of the intelligence community says that references to al Qaeda were removed by somebody, and they don’t know who. And references to attacks versus demonstrations were removed by somebody.”

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/house-intel-chair-appointees-administration-changed-rices-talking-points

While the Obama re-election campaign and White House operatives followed the Alinsky model that the ends justify the means and changed talking points to support the false narrative coming out of the Democratic National Convention that Al Qaeda had been smashed, the Middle East drifted into more dangerous territory.

Not only did Hamas resume launching hundreds of Iranian made missiles into Israel, they were joined in that effort by Egypt.

In response, Israel readied forces to launch and ‘significantly expand’ an offensive if necessary.

On Sunday, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a stiff warning to Hamas.  He declared the Israeli army was prepared to widen its Gaza offensive significantly.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry reinforced Netanyahu’s statements by confirming that if rocket attacks persisted, a ground offensive into Gaza was likely.  Speaking to France 24, Ygal Palmor stated that “Our sole aim of this offensive is to make Hamas stop firing rockets. We have used air strikes but if that’s not enough then we may contemplate ground operations as well.”

To round out the insanity of the left, the war on Christianity continues in America.

The City of Santa Monica is being sued over freedom of speech after choosing to end the city’s holiday tradition of displaying Nativity scenes.

Said Hunter Jameson, head of the nonprofit Santa Monica Nativity Scene Committee that is behind the law suit: “It’s a sad, sad commentary on the attitudes of the day that a nearly 60-year-old Christmas tradition is now having to hunt for a home, something like our savior had to hunt for a place to be born because the world was not interested.”

National atheist groups, responding to Catholic activism against women’s healthcare issues imposed by Obamacare, paid for newspaper ads and TV spots in their latest salvo in the war against Christianity in America.

Atheist tactics have shifted to an insistence that their views be given equal placement alongside holiday displays conveying the Christian message.  Previously, atheists had sought to enforce separation of church and state via the courts.

The alleged leader of the free world is so reliant on his teleprompter that in the midst of an historic diplomatic mission he does not know what he is saying.  The eager, obedient lap-dogs in the “progressive” Party Pravda have joined with so-called academics to re-write American history in favor of their radical, anti-American agenda.  As it is happening, the Obama administration is revising history to suit their political needs because they know a criminally negligent media which places taking sides before reporting the truth will not challenge them.  America is speeding towards bankruptcy while the world becomes more unsafe and “progressives” offer no viable answers.  Despite the 75 percent of America who celebrate Christmas, they are being forced by aggressive fringe minorities to confront demands for a secular, multicultural society.

If ever there was a time for Conservatives to unite and draw a line in the sand against the encroachment of the institutionalized “progressive” left’s insanity, this is it.

Boehner Caving?

November 9, 2012

Since the results of the 2012 election came in, Speaker of the House John Boehner has shown signs of abdicating his role as a Conservative American leader.

On taxes he has said “For purposes of forging a bipartisan agreement that begins to solve the problem, we’re willing to accept new revenue, under the right conditions.”

Where repealing Obamacare is concerned: “Well, I think the election changes that. It’s pretty clear that the president was reelected, Obamacare is the law of the land.”

What were Boehner’s remarks regarding amnesty for illegal aliens? “A comprehensive approach is long overdue, and I’m confident that the president, myself, others can find the common ground to take care of this issue once and for all.”

This is not the kind of leadership Conservative Americans deserve.

Boehner appears to be falling into the same trap Republicans have repeatedly fallen in to when dealing with “progressive” Democrats.  Time after time, Republicans have agreed to “compromise”; essentially capitulating to “progressive” Democratic demands in exchange for meaningless, empty promises.

Abandoning American principles by caving in to “progressive” demands has never led to success for Republicans. Republicans have tried the surrender approach before and it has never worked.  The only way Republicans ever make gains is by standing by the principles of liberty and freedom that made America great.

Passage of amnesty legislation will not help the GOP win Hispanic voters. Passing amnesty in 1986 did nothing to help Ronald Reagan and his fellow Republicans in the 1988 midterm elections. The Republicans still lost. Hispanic voters kept voting for Democrats, as they continue to do to this day.

The facts show, Republicans like Boehner who support amnesty are helping “progressive” Democrats import more Democrats.

Since becoming Speaker, Boehner has blocked voting on immigration enforcement in Congress.  This includes a bill that would have freed up seven million jobs currently held by illegal aliens.  Not only is Boehner apparently willing to help “progressives” import more Democrats he also holds the morally reprehensible position of allowing unemployed American workers to suffer.

Less than a week after losing a fairly close election it is understandable that the losing side feels under siege.  Nevertheless, feeling under siege does not justify surrender.

The only real solution for Republicans is to employ the considerable talents of young Hispanic leaders within the Republican Party to reach out to Americans of Hispanic descent and explain to them why America’s founding principles are more in line with their values and beliefs than are “progressive” ideas.

If Republicans wish to remain a vibrant Party that seriously contends in future elections, this is the path.  The sooner Republicans begin the process the better.

Never Forget

October 30, 2012

When compared to 2008, Barack Obama’s early vote advantage has dropped by 22 points.  That is according to Gallup, one of if not the most respected American poll.

In this year’s early voting Mitt Romney leads Obama by seven points, 52-45 percent.  Four years ago, Obama led John McCain among early voters by fifteen-points, 55-40 percent.

The latest National Public Radio poll registered an 8 point swing in favor of Romney that puts him in front.  The NPR poll, which showed Obama ahead of Romney 51- 44 percent a month ago, now has Romney leading 48-47 percent.  Romney is doing particularly well with independent voters.

According to NPR:

“Most of the gains for Romney have come from independents, who went from favoring Romney by a few points before the debates to favoring him 51% to 39% after the debates.”

Obama’s left base, in the form of Michael Moore and MoveOn.Org, has responded with an ad which allegedly speaks for the Greatest Generation:

“If your voter suppression throughout this beautiful country enables Romney to oust Barack Obama, we will burn this mother f*cker down.  I’m going to track down Mitt Romney and give him the world’s biggest c*ck punch.”

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/332037/all-class-ad-vows-cck-punch-mitt-romney-viewer-discretion-advised-eliana-johnson#

Americans raised in the homes of the Greatest Generation know the Greatest Generation…they are their mothers and fathers.  This ad does not come from the Greatest Generation.  This ad definitely is not the Greatest Generation.

What this ad reflects is the depths to which the institutionalized “progressive” left is willing to sink in its desperate bid to hang on to absolute power.

They were so close.

They won the Congress and Senate in 2006, and thought they had put the final piece of the puzzle in place in 2008 with Obama’s election.  They could do whatever they wanted and America could not stop them.  Their all-powerful centrally planned “progressive” big government would rule America in perpetuity.

In 2010 Americans thought otherwise.

Now, America needs to send “progressives” home licking their wounds from an obvious shellacking.

Furthermore, America needs to remember how sneaky, nasty, dishonest, irresponsible, selfish and contemptible “progressives” were between 2006 and 2012 and never, ever, ever vote them back into power.

White House Fails at Home and Abroad

September 14, 2012

Why are Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the White House obsessed with apologizing for an amateur video that no-one had heard of, seen or cared about?  Why are they so obsessed with singing the praises of “a great religion” who’s leaders are the world’s leading proponent for mob violence and mass murder?

In light of the fact that North Dakota State University has been evacuated after a bomb threat, there has been an ‘unspecified’ threat at Valparaiso University, an Al Qaeda threat has shut down the University of Texas, a mob at the U.S. London embassy burned an American flag, protesters smashed windows and set fires at the U.S. embassy in Tunisia, gunfire was heard at the embassy in Sudan, clashes at the Cairo embassy continue to intensify, why is the current administration so obsessed with telling violent Islamist extremists “we’re sorry”?

As per to the UK Independent:

“According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and “lockdown”, under which movement is severely restricted….

There is growing belief that the attack was in revenge for the killing in a drone strike in Pakistan of Mohammed Hassan Qaed, an al-Qa’ida operative who was, as his nom-de-guerre Abu Yahya al-Libi suggests, from Libya, and timed for the anniversary of the 11 September attacks”

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/politics/revealed-inside-story-of-us-envoys-assassination-8135797.html

The U.S. federal government, who’s responsibility is to ensure the safety and security of America, even though they had advance warning at a time of tremendous unrest in the Islamist world, failed to protect American embassies abroad on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks?

Now their chorus is “We’re sorry”?

There are people who hate America.  The current administration can apologize to them, bow to their kings, try to bribe them with foreign aid and beg for forgiveness all it wants.  People who hate America will continue to hate America.

Instead of trying through appeasement to make friends with those who want to kill Americans, the United States government should ensure that those who hate America at least respect American might and American resolve.

Since even before his election, Obama has sought to soft sell America to the Islamist world.  He has followed the “progressive” approach that if America is nice enough to its enemies for long enough, its enemies will decide to like America in return.

So far, mass violence has broken out in Syria, Egypt and Libya.  In Libya four Americans have died.  Iraq is cooperating with Iran, allowing the Iranian Islamist government to arm Syrian rebels by allowing them safe passage through Iraq.  Israel is under existential threat because Iran thumbs its nose at the world and comes ever closer to building a nuclear weapon.

The results of “progressive” foreign policies have been at the very least, unsatisfactory.

Since “progressives” believe they should be judged solely on their intent, they are incapable of understanding why America’s enemies have rejected their overtures.  To “progressives” their being judged on the results of their policies and initiatives remains a puzzle.  They remain mystified as to why they are being blamed for the failure of their policies.  After all, “their intentions were good”, therefore it can’t possibly be their fault.

For so long as Barrack Hussein Obama, who’s economic, domestic and foreign policies are all designed to curtail American power and influence at home and abroad remains in the White House, the world’s perception of America will remain unchanged.
