“progressives” in The Media

May 6, 2013

The Edward-R-MurrowAmerican mainstream media has long been sympathetic to the “progressive” cause. For decades they have made subliminal editorial decisions regarding their reportage in favor of “progressive” concepts and candidates. They, along with teachers, professors, Hollywood producers, screenplay writers and actors have slowly, carefully but consistently nudged American thought farther to the left.

Case in point: Edward R. Murrow, who was a member of the John F. Kennedy administration and later awarded the Medal of Freedom by Lyndon B. Johnson.  Murrow is best remembered for TV news reports that led to the censure of a pro-America Senator Joseph McCarthy.  The memory of Murrow is championed by “progressive” outlets such as Brian WilliamsNewsweek Magazine and NPR.  The “progressive” former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann considers Murrow his idol.  Members of today’s “progressive” media and “progressive” academia view Murrow’s name as synonymous with journalistic excellence.

By the year 2008, once the nomination of Barack Hussein Obama as the “progressive” Democratic Party’s candidate for president was secured, the “progressive” Party Pravda, also known as the American mainstream media, moved beyond the subliminal (and sometimes not so subliminal) bias they had manifested for decades and entered the realm of advocacy.

Make that “progressive” advocacy.

Media bias against Conservatives and in favor of “progressive” concepts and candidates is nothing new. Look at what they did to Joseph Mcchris_matthewsCarthy, Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Dan Quayle and Andrew Breitbart.

However, in today’s world their tactics have exceeded bias and grotesquely mutated into deifying “progressivism” while vilifying Conservatism. Look at what they have done for Barack Hussein Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, Chuck Schumer, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. Look at what they have done and are doing to Sarah Palin, Herman Cain, Allen West, Mia Love, Tim Scott, Bobby Jindal, Ted Cruz and Benjamin Carson.

At each and every available opportunity, the “progressive” Party Pravda has eagerly jumped to wrongly suggest that every violent public occurrence was likely committed by a potentially dangerous, Conservative right wing Tea Party extremist type. For example, take the cold-blooded Gabby Giffords shooting, the tragic Newtown Connecticut murders and the Boston Marathon Islamo-fascist terrorist bombing.George Stephanopoulos

Meanwhile, what did the “progressive” Party Pravda do to truthfully report what happened in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11/2012, when four Americans were left to die? Did they level with America and disclose that the Obama administration was involved in a massive presidential election year cover-up or did they knowingly and willfully repeat White House talking points in order to aid and abet Obama’s re-election? How about the Department of Justice’s ill-advised, ill-fated Fast and Furious gun running operation which intentionally put semi-automatic weapons into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, where those weapons were involved in the slaughter of hundreds of Mexican civilians and a U.S. Border Agent? Do Americans know the real unekatie couricmployment numbers and why the reported numbers are artificially low? How many Americans know that the U.S. Senate, under the so-called leadership of “progressive” Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) consciously neglected to pass a budget in four years? Do they know about the gruesomely bloody late term abortion/murder trial in Pennsylvania of Kermit Gosnell? What do they know about the death toll in Syria’s ongoing civil war?

The “progressive” Party Pravda is government controlled media telling the American public what “progressive” politicians want them to think, want them to focus on and where their attention should be directed.

Trusting information disseminated by the “progressive” Party Pravda is a fool’s errand.  They are not to be trusted.  They are hiding the truth about America’s political system, the federal government’s centrally planned “progressive” controlled academic agenda, the wolf-blitzerdegenerative nature of American popular culture, and intentionally misleading the public about events, facts, figures and the importance of adhering to and restoring America’s exceptional values and historic traditions.

Thanks largely to the “progressive” Party Pravda’s reinforcing wrong headed ideas being infused into the minds of the voting public by academia and pop culture, Americans are seemingly unaware of the shift in America’s political dynamics. They are oblivious to the swing away from the now obsolete century plus old Republican versus Democrat political paradigm.

Who’s Offering Economic Solutions?

February 25, 2012

Given America’s growing national debt, now in excess of $15 trillion:

A per capita government debt that’s worse than Greece’s:

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/chart-america-s-capita-government-debt-worse-greece_631797.html

Unemployment numbers “officially” listed at 8.5%:

Petroleum prices trending higher, adding pain at the pump for consumers while decreasing money available to them for spending on vital necessities like food and shelter:

http://www.livecharts.co.uk/trend_signals/trend_forecast_chart_selector.php?ts=Futures_WI

A statement like: “America’s in need of economic solutions” is certainly far from a stretch. Many would say such a statement falls more into the “You have a firm grasp of the obvious” category.

The questions are:

Who will offer the solutions? What solutions will be offered? When is someone going to offer these solutions? Why are the solutions being offered the best solutions available? Where will the money come from to put these solutions into motion?

According to an Associated Press-GfK poll conducted February 16 to 20, 56% of Americans preferred cuts in government spending, compared to 31% who considered higher taxes as the best medicine.

http://apnews.myway.com/article/20120224/D9T3L7SG3.html

With Social Security burdened by a growing $15.5 trillion in unfunded liabilities, with Medicare’s unfunded liabilities surpassing $81.6 trillion, plus an additional $20.5 trillion for Medicare Part D, there simply isn’t enough discretionary spending available to make the cuts necessary to get America out of debt. However, despite over $15 trillion in debt and unfunded liabilities exceeding $117.7 trillion, with America’s economy in the midst of a deep, long recession struggling to display a flicker of hope for a less than vibrant, jobless recovery, most economists agree that now is not the time to raise taxes.

The first order of business is to get the American economy growing.

Higher tax rates results in reduced profits to investors, thereby inhibiting capital investment. Reduced capital investment leads to economic contraction, resulting in fewer jobs and reduced tax revenue, which in turn tempts government to raise tax rates again. In the face of lost private sector growth, Statists persist with the illusion that government spending stimulates economic growth. It didn’t work for FDR to end the Great Depression, and it resulted in a “Misery Index” during Jimmy Carter’s term in office. Government spending on “jobs creation” is inefficient. Not only is money wasted on unproductive pet projects, a portion of the revenue is lost before it ever hits the streets thanks to the cost of government overhead. The end result is less long term private sector growth and larger deficits, which in turn tempt the government to increase tax rates yet again. A downward spiral is set into motion.

Historically, the most efficient way to stimulate America’s economy has been to allow individuals and businesses to keep their own money by cutting taxes. When tax rates are reduced, the economy experiences sustained periods of growth. It worked when Calvin Coolidge reduced taxes in the 1920s. It worked when John Kennedy cut tax rates in the 1960s. It worked again when Ronald Reagan followed suit in the 1980s. Not only does cutting taxes create jobs, the increased revenues lower the government’s deficit. Despite businesses and individuals paying smaller percentages, thanks to economic growth, the IRS collects more revenue from a larger pool of taxpayers. Businesses enjoy profits which allow investments in expansion, which creates greater output, sales and profit, which in turn stimulate the need to hire new employees, who have more revenue to buy products created and produced within the private sector. An upward spiral is created.

Once the private sector economy is growing and providing new jobs, the next step is to cut government overhead.

First, government employee unions should be ended. Government employees could choose between keeping their jobs at private sector salaries or seeking employment elsewhere. Since unionized government employees make an average annual salary that’s $32,000 more than private sector employees doing the same jobs, the across the board savings would be considerable.

Second, with the exception of proven friends and allies, America should cut all foreign aid. Why does the United States borrow money from Communist China and allow the Federal Reserve to inflate its currency in order to give foreign aid to countries hostile to America?

Third, the United States should withdraw from the UN, stop paying dues to the organization, and expel them from America’s shores permanently. The UN was founded after World War II to prevent a third world war involving nuclear weapons. Since North Korea has and Iran is on the brink of deploying such weapons despite the existence of the UN, why does America allow dictators to come to the United States, grant them diplomatic immunity, then sit idly by while they insult Americans and the American way of life…on America’s dime? The UN is involved in programs and regulations that go so far beyond its original mandate that continuing to fund and be a member of this organization is no longer in the best interests of the United States.

Fourth, cut all government subsidies. With the exception of being the referee as required, government should not be involved in the free market system. Government subsidies interfere with the free market principles of supply and demand, and are being kept alive by corruption breeding special interest groups.

Fifth, defund and dismantle government departments that have proven to be costly and ineffective. The quality of America’s education has declined steadily the Department of Education was established. Additionally, centrally planned curriculum has allowed “progressive” infiltrators to use the Department as a means to indoctrinate generations of American youth to their Marxist agenda.  The Department of Energy was founded during the Jimmy Carter Administration with the expressed goal of making America less dependant on foreign energy. The results have been the exact opposite of the stated goal. America is more dependent on foreign energy than ever before. Why is this failure still being funded?

There are other big government programs that feast on the national treasury that can also be eliminated. Among these are the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Homeland Security. At a time of pending fiscal crisis, surely it’s to America’s advantage to free itself of the weight and expense of these bloated bureaucracies.

This is the pathway to reducing America’s annual budget deficits. But what of those looming unfunded liabilities? The inevitable conclusion is that that major reforms are needed in the way Social Security and Medicare function.

When Social Security was established, the age of eligibility was 65. At that time, the average life span of an American male was 58, while women lived to an average age of 62. Combine that life expectancy and eligibility age, factor in people making Social Security payments for the duration of their working careers and the original system was financially solvent.

Today, the average lifespan of men is now 73, while women live to be an average age of 79. Combine this longer duration of payout with the increase in eligible recipients that is resulting from the maturation of the baby boomer generation and there is clearly going to burden the existing system. The age of eligibility should be adjusted to conform to our increased life expectancy. This same revised actuarial formula should be applied to Medicare.

Additionally, no payments should be made to those who have not paid into the system. This would apply to all foreign nationals. If a foreign national is working legally within America, they won’t be responsible for paying in, because they won’t be eligible to collect. If they’re here illegally, they shouldn’t be on anyone’s payroll to begin with.

This is by no means a complete list. More needs to be done, but this is a place to start the conversation. The debt America has and continues to accumulate is an existential threat to the United States. To mortgage the well being of future generations in order to postpone the inevitable is not only irresponsible and dishonorable, it would be the first time a generation of Americans chose to leave the country a worse place for their children than was the one they inherited. All to spare themselves the pains of growing up.

Tyranny

February 17, 2012

Of late, much has been made about the current administration’s attack on First Amendment Rights.  Attacks have been made on religious liberties (see healthcare mandate on contraception in religious affiliated institutions  http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/12/us/catholic-bishops-criticize-new-contraception-proposal.html) and freedom of the press (see White House and Media Matters coordinate attacks on FOX News http://dailycaller.com/2012/02/12/inside-media-matters-sources-memos-reveal-erratic-behavior-close-coordination-with-white-house-and-news-organizations/).

While it may be correct to fight unconstitutional actions by this administration through continued pursuit of these specific issues, it might be wiser to focus on the bigger picture.

  • He has violated the individual liberties of all our people by imposing forced participation in a government healthcare regulatory system without our consent.
  • He has collaborated with his Attorney General to ignore equal protection under the law in favor of selective protections based upon arbitrary factors.
  • He has violated American bankruptcy laws by willfully denying secured bond holders first payment, in favor of unsecured political supporters.
  • He has violated the Constitution by accepting the position of Chairmanship of the UN Security Council.
  • He has ignored the Constitutional separation of power by appointing “czars” to oversee matters that are intended to be handled by the legislative branch of the government.
  • He has violated the First Amendment right to freedom of the press, by attacking television and radio networks, stations and broadcasters while attempting censorship.
  • He has violated the individual’s right to free speech through creation of an email address to report Citizens in a blatant attempts to silence dissent through intimidation.
  • He has violated the Law by ignoring the War Powers Act and engaging the United States military in overseas hostilities without the consent of Congress.
  • He has violated the First Amendment by attempting to impose restrictions on free speech through implementation of Net Neutrality by the FCC.
  • He has endeavored to interfere in the free market through the imposition of The Clean Energy and Security Act, which mandates carbon emissions be reduced to 17 percent below 2005 levels by 2020, 42 percent by 2030, and 84 percent by 2050. By 2020, this tax will extract an estimated $160 billion from the economy, or an average $1,870 per family.
  • He has violated the Constitution by having the government offer $4,500 rebates to people for turning in older motor vehicles for newer vehicles
  • He has interfered in America’s free market by having the National Labor Relations Board sue a privately owned company for planning to open for business in a State that protects an employee’s ability to work free of forced union membership.
  • He has interfered in the free market by imposing restrictions and regulations on petroleum, natural gas and coal production in the United States.
  • He has abandoned enforcing the security of American borders and protected illegal immigrants from prosecution for violation of immigration laws:
  • He has abandoned and insulted our most enduring and faithful allies through speech and action, the most glaring among these being placing the State of Israel on the list of nations that foster terrorism.
  • He has sought to impose additional taxes on us without our Consent.
  • For depriving us in some cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
  • For transferring billions of dollars to enemies of the United States through Foreign Aid.
  • For ignoring the Constitutional separation of powers by publicly attacking the Supreme Court of the United States.
  • For attacking America’s bedrock family values by ordering the Department of Justice to not defend the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act.
  • For repeated attacks upon America’s Christian foundation.
  • For repeatedly slandering American Citizens with false accusations of racism, violent tendencies and hatred.
  • For grossly accelerating and increasing the amount of America’s debt through passage of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, which had negligible effect on unemployment, sent billions of dollars overseas and wasted billions domestically bailing out States practicing irresponsible budgetary policies.
  • For putting America and America’s allies at greater risk through cancellation of missile defense systems.
  • For expanding the need for enormous increases in government borrowing,
  • For collaborating with his Attorney General to try enemy combatants in civilian Courts.
  • For collaborating with his Attorney General and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms in the implementation of operation Fast and Furious, which has been implicated in the murder of American Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
  • For devaluing our currency by engaging in the practice of Quantitative Easing, allowing the Federal Reserve to purchase trillions of dollars of our national debt.

The list could continue, but you get the idea.

A President whose character is thus marked by acts which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to govern a free people.

The “progressive” War On Christianity

February 4, 2012

This past week, Susan G. Komen for the Cure announced a decision to stop funding Planned Parenthood. Their decision was based on the fact that to a large measure, the business of Planned Parenthood is abortion. A determination substantiated by a statistical analysis of Planned Parenthood’s services.

http://liveaction.org/blog/38-4-of-pp-health-center-income-is-from-abortions/

Planned Parenthood continues to insist that they provide badly needed healthcare services to low income women. Never mind that 38.4% of Planned Parenthood health center income comes directly from aborting unborn children. This may come as quite the shock to Americans whose political views reside on the left end of the spectrum, but pregnancy is not a disease. Abortion doesn’t cure anything. In the caring, non-savage world, reproductive healthcare means keeping expectant mothers and their unborn babies healthy, not killing the unborn babies.

This became a huge, front-page news story that led the nightly national television news cycle. Public pressure from left wing politicians like Nancy Pelosi and “progressive” activist groups managed to coerce The Komen Foundation into reversing their courageous decision. The politicizing of this decision was clearly out of bounds, since The Komen Foundation is a private organization that is free to operate their charity as they see fit. This is yet another example of the “mainstream” media’s persistent pattern of aiding and abetting leftist positions.

Prior to that, ABC, CBS, CNN and NBC all ignored the Department of Health and Human Services decision that by Aug. 1, religiously inspired hospitals, schools and charities that hire outside their faith must offer insurance coverage for sterilization, abortifacients and contraceptives without deductibles or co-pays. What this means is, the Catholic Church will be forced to either comply with a Congressional law prohibiting the free exercise of their religion, a clear violation of the First Amendment, or close down hospitals, universities and charities. That the media would fail to report on this unconstitutional power grab by the United States government stands in stark contrast to their open eagerness to defend “progressive” agenda items like abortion.

It’s easy to identify where, when and why a clearly biased media openly takes sides in an unprecedented government assault on Christianity. But the blame doesn’t reside solely within the “progressive” Party Pravda. If you’re a pro life Christian who voted for “progressive” politicians and their empty promises of hope and change, you are partly to blame for their war on Christianity.

The remedy is both simple and obvious. In November 2012 “progressive” politicians must be voted out of power.

Don’t Build SNOWMEN, See It.

October 24, 2011

On Saturday October 22, I attended a special showing of the new children’s movie “Snowmen”, by the Producers of “The Passion of The Christ”, “Braveheart”, and “We Were Soldiers”, which stars Ray Liotta, Christopher Lloyd and Bobby Coleman.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUq8VS6aa9U

http://www.movietomovement.com/en-us/default.aspx

 “Snowmen” is as well produced and directed as any movie made in Hollywood today.  The story, acting, cinematography and sound quality stand up to any production currently in theatres.  Additionally, “Snowmen”is refreshingly devoid of overbearing computerized special effects.  The movie relies on the storyline rather than cheap flashy visual gimmicks.  While the story does sucumb somewhat to Hollywood’s now familiar “everyone goes home with a warm fuzzy feeling inside” predictability, there’s nothing particularly new, shocking or negative about that in a children’s movie.  After all, Disney’s been following this same formula since the 1950s.

“Snowmen” is populated by real people feeling real emotions.  These are believable characters, complete with parents, teachers, neighbors, friends and schoolyard bullies.  What’s great about “Snowmen” is, at a time when children are being targeted and inundated by messages of violence, hatred, greed and promisquiety, “Snowmen” successfully conveys a responsibly positive, wholesome message.  If you’re looking for an antidote to Hollywood’s typically negative fare, replete with subliminal “progressive” brainwashing, “Snowmen” is it.  See it.  Take your children and/or grandchildren to see it.

Hey Pelosi, Here’s Your Astroturf!

October 5, 2011

Occupy Wall Street is Van Jones’ bottom up, top down, inside out strategy at work. The fringe leftist radicals were hoping the Tea Party would go violent so they could be blamed, but since the Tea Party didn’t oblige, the fringe leftist radicals are calling their own out on to the streets. Of course, in complete contradiction with reality, the fringe leftist radicals will conjer up a way to blame their actions on the Tea Party.

This 100% astroturf “movement”, completely manufactured by “progressives” who seek to destroy the American way of life, are “progressive” Tea Party copycat wannabees.  Is it any surprise that this action was initiated by Van Jones, a self avowed Communist?  That reality is certainly no accident.  Now, the protestors are joined by “progressive” propoganda minions MoveOn.org (funded by anti-American “open borders” champion George Soros) and multiple unions like the Chinatown Tenants Union, the Transit Workers Union, and community organizations such as the Working Families Party and United NY.   Their demands are simple.  What do they want?  FREE STUFF!!  When do they want it?  ALL THE TIME!!  Their “message”?  Capitalism, mortgage bankers, commodity traders and corporations are all evil.  In short, they’re a bunch of tax the rich Communist nitwits who’re in dire need of a bath.

Americans should laugh at and ignore these “progressive” useful idiots who’re clogging the streets and being arrested by the hundreds. Let the current White House occupant and his “progressive” political allies call out the muscle against their own followers, upon whom their re-election chances rely.

Chris Christie’s Out…Who’s In?

October 4, 2011

Ann Coulter may be disappointed, but New Jersey gets to keep its governor.  Meanwhile, Republicans still must pick their Presidential candidate.  Despite what the “progressive” Party Pravda (aka the mainstream media) tells you, there are more than two options.

Rick Perry’s been a fairly successful governor in a State that’s created a lot of jobs during today’s depression.  Because of a business friendly political climate, lots of companies have relocated to Texas from States where economies are being destroyed by “progressive” policies.  However, there’s more to consider.  Thanks to a series of bumbling debate performances, Perry’s viability is increasingly in doubt.  An insistence on defending his State’s immigration policies remains a liability.  Border security is a major concern for most Americans.  A taxpayer funded magnet of “free stuff” for illegal aliens doesn’t fly with Conservatives.  Categorizing others as heartless for disagreeing with this position may not have been the best way for Perry to approach it.

Mitt Romney’s candidacy has not ignited passion, especially with grassroots Conservatives.  The Tea Party sees him as a RINO.  He’s the entrenched establishment’s (aka “progressives” in American clothing) “next one in line” candidate.  To the Tea Party, he’s yesterday’s news.  Although he would love their support, the only way Romney will get Tea Parpty support is if he wins the nomination without it.  There’s more than one albatross around his neck.  The big one is romneycare.  How can a former Governor who signed an individual mandate into law possibly champion the drive to repeal obamacare because it features an individual mandate?  Then again, there’s that image of being a flip flopper fostered by his changing views on a variety of positions over the years.  Sure, he worked successfully in the private sector.  Yes, he turned the Olympics around financially.  But, does he really know how to create jobs on main street?  He’s corporate CEO kind of guy born with a silver spoon in his mouth.

Gary Johnson has good ideas about cutting taxes and reducing spending.  He understands that even if spending is cut, government can’t be trusted to apply the money to deficit reduction, that it’s more inclined to spend the money on wasteful projects.  However, his foreign policy views and ideas on social issues will cost him dearly with Conservatives.

With Christies’ withdrawal, Jon Huntsman, who’s betting his entire candidacy on New Hampshire, might experience short term benefits there with moderates.  However, his foreign policy positions have as much chance of attracting Republicans as do those of a better known candidate who also has no chance of winning the nomination.

Ron Paul has a remarkably devoted following, hence his strong fund raising abilities.  He also has some good ideas vis a vis the domestic economy.  But he disqualifies himself from being Commmander in Chief by virtue of his Code Pink like foreign policy views.  Besides, does any Republican really want a  President who’s openly teamed with Barney Frank in sponsoring legislation to legalize marijuana?

Michele Bachmann started out strong but has slowed.  She’s stuck to her guns and maintained her bona fide Conservative positions, but a series of gaffes have taken their toll, having a negative impact on her funding raising.  She remains in contention because she’s stood by her convictions, standing firm on national defense, support for Israel, denying taxpayer funded benefits to illegal aliens, defending parental rights, and leading the charge to defund obamacare and seeing that it’s repealed completely.

Newt Gingrich remains in the race primarily because he’s still churning out ideas, but his candidacy seems a long shot due to personal baggage.  Yes, he cheated on his wife with an interm while attacking Bill Clinton for doing the same.  Yes, that made him a hypocrite.  But to Gingrich’s credit, where Clinton lied, creating the now famous phrase “it depends on what your definition of is is”, Gingrich admitted to it and resigned.  Gingrich can rightly claim that he knows how to balance the federal budget.  In fact, he’s the only candidate of any political Party who can make that claim.

Rick Santorum is strongly Conservative on moral issues, which is fine, but is probably not the quickest pathway to victory in a fiscal election.  He’s strong on foreign policy, Second Amendment Rights, and obamacare.  However, for Santorum to gain traction with voters, he should refocus his campaign on fiscal matters, especially Joe Biden’s favorite three letter word: J-O-B-S.

Herman Cain is a strong fiscal and social Conservative.  His 9-9-9 tax reform plan is revolutionary and could ignite private sector growth, something that’s badly needed.  Cain’s been an outspoken opponent of national healthcare ever since Bill Clinton tried to introduce it in the 1990’s.  While he shares the Libertarian view that America should not preemptively go into war, he falls short of crippling America’s defense capabilities by gutting defense spending.  Herman Cain enjoys grassroots support because he’s a real grassroots American, born and raised in  the south to a low income family that refused government handouts.  He’s a prime example of the American “pull yourself up by your own bootstraps” way of life.  Best of all, he’s not a career politician.

Ann Coulter’s choice for the GOP nominations isn’t running…is yours?

“progressives” Prepare To Riot

October 1, 2011

Self avowed Communist and former White House “green jobs czar” Van Jones has crawled out from under his rock to rear his anti-American, cop hating fringe radical head once again.  He recently asserted on MSNBC’s “The Last Word” that America’s deficit problem is “phony”.  He didn’t stop there.  Jones continued: “Hold on to your hats, we’re going to have an October offensive to take back the American dream and rescue America’s middle class.”

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2011/09/29/van_jones_were_going_to_build_a_progressive_counterbalance_to_tea_party.html#.ToZeSvtb2nk.facebook

Really?

With the current national debt at $14.5 trillion and rapidly growing, not including the costs of unfunded mandates for big government socialist programs, how is that “phoney”?  Will it also be “phony” when bill collectors come knocking on America’s door?  Since when has shredding the Constitution and destroying free market capitalism described “the American dream”?  Exactly how does ending a system that created the largest, most affluent middle class in world history “rescue” the middle class?

Van Jones is a long time fringe radical hell bent on overthrowing the American system.  It’s been his life’s work.  His “bottom up, top down, inside out” strategy depends on riots in the streets (bottom up), so his radical allies in Washington DC can impose “control” (top down) and turn the country “inside out” by God knows what kind of big government control of We The People.  This might very well be enforced by the barrel of a gun.  Image life under martial law, run by the corrupt thugocracy currently occupying the White House.  Since, much to fringe radical “progressive’s” dismay, the Tea Party has failed to oblige them by acting violently, the only solution left to “progressives” is to incite violence themselves.

Should this country descend into mayhem the blame will rest squarely on the shoulders of fringe radical elements like Van Jones and his “progressive” band of extremists.  Their intellectual dishonesty and moral cowardice has promoted the hateful rhetoric of “progressives” to the point that it’s found its way into the living rooms of Americans. 

Be forewarned Americans.  October is scheduled for violence.  “progressive” violence.  Do not be fooled.  The violence in the streets will be largely as it was back in the 1960s.  Perpetrated by fringe radical anti-American elements devoted to the destruction of the United States.  The difference this time will be,  instead of standing up for America, the White House will be siding with the radicals.

The Party of No and No Transparency.

September 23, 2011

Which political Party in America is the Party of NO?

Contrary to popular belief, it’s not the Republican Party.  It’s the “progressive” Party, formerly known as the Democratic Party.  The misinformation that the Republican Party is the Party of NO is pure unadulterated propoganda manufactured by “progressive” smear meisters and propogated by lying, two faced hypocritical “progressive” politicians and obedient, submissive, tail wagging lapdogs in the “progressive” Party Pravda (formerly known as the mainstream media).

Since the Republican Party took over control of the House of Representatives following the historic 2010 election, they’ve passed a budget for 2010 (something the “progressive” Party failed to do under former Speaker Nancy Pelosi) and 2011, passed two compromise pieces of legislation that not only would have prevented a government shutdown over budget cuts, would have prevented the following downgrade of the United States’ credit rating.  The credit rating downgrade resulted from a complete unwillingness of Senate “progressives” to cut unbridled, out of control big government spending.  With the “full faith and credit of the United States” at stake, Senate “progressives” and their less than zero hero in the White House all said NO.

House Republicans just passed a continuing resolution that will keep the government running and pay for the additional costs of FEMA through budgetary savings elsewhere.  The “progressive” Party’s response?  A quick vote to shelve  the House’s legislation and continue fostering manufactured crisies through the practice of misguided, destructive, unnecessary political brinksmanship.  The real Party of NO rears its ugly head yet again.

 Which political Party in America is the Party of NO transparency?

Which political Party is responsible for the “stimulus” and Obamacare, both of which were voted on in the midst of manufactured crisis after being written by a tiny minority of “progressive” Party leaders behind closed doors with zero input from Republicans? 

Which political Party is responsible for the creation and implementation of Fast and Furious, and for stonewalling its investigation by Congress?  Fast and Furious has led to the death of at least one American border agent, not to mention an as yet undetermined number of innocent American and Mexican civillians.  Richard M. Nixon was forced to resign in disgrace over Watergate.  Nobody died because of Watergate.  Both Eric Holder and his boss should be under criminal investigation right now.

Top executives from Solyndra exercised their Fifth Amendment Rights before a Congressional investigation.  Where’s the transparency from White House cronies?  Why were they given loan guarantees for half a billion dollars under fast track conditions dictated by the White House?  Perhaps if “progressives” actually practiced transparency rather than just lying about practicing it, we’d have an inkling about why the $38.6 billion loan guarantee program the current White House occupant said would create 65,000 jobs only created 3,545, according to Energy Department records.

 Which political Party brought us LightSquared?  Do you call having Four Star Gen. William Shelton being urged to alter his testimony before Congress to make it more favorable to a company with close ties to the White House, while potentially compromising military safety transparency?  Only if you’re a “progressive”.

Actions speak louder than words…or in this case, acts of corruption speak louder than empty, rhetorical campaign promises.

obama’s “New” Jobs Plan

September 19, 2011

Class war.

The wealthy don’t pay enough taxes? Sorry, the facts don’t support that allegation, whether your name is Warren Buffett or Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The facts are, the top 5% of earners in the United States pay more taxes than the other 95% combined. Another inconvenient truth for the emperor is that 45% of wage earners in the United States pay ZERO income tax. I agree that everyone should pay their fare share. Tax rates should be lowered for high income earners and the 45% who currently pay NOTHING should start paying their fair share.

The “stimulus” bill, besides wasting millions of $$ creating sight pollution along American highways with fraudulent signage, “saved” public sector union jobs in blue States where busted budgets could no longer support the outrageously unfair and unwarranted cadillac retirement and healthcare benefits passed by “progressive” State legislatures and signed into law by “progressive” governors in a quid quo pro exchange for union votes. Now that the money’s run out on the failed first “stimulus”, emperor less than zero needs another round of spending to finance those same public sector union costs between now and November 2012 in what will be an unsuccessful attempt to get re-elected. He won’t get the votes of people who understand that politicians who buy votes with taxpayer’s money are criminals. Especially when the ones paying the taxes outnumber those who’re helping the crooks.

At risk of sounding like a broken record:

Government spending on jobs doesn’t create wealth. Thanks to the cost of government overhead, government spending on “jobs creation” is a net loss. Additionally, government jobs consume wealth.

The private sector creates wealth, which leads to real jobs that last for years or even decades. The job of the government is to create a business climate that encourages investment, growth and wealth creation in the private sector. Any government that fails in that endeavor is not doing their job. Anyone who’s paying attention to reality knows that the current White House occupant is aggressively doing the opposite.

The current grade for emperor less than zero’s job performance?
