Hitler saw Volkswagon as a success too

President Obama came here on Friday to promote an economic success story, but even before he could get out of Washington, he was handed new evidence of the continued challenge he faces from the sputtering recovery. Mr. Obama was fired up at Chrysler and General Motors plants before enthusiastic autoworkers as he related the good news that the companies had returned to profitability and added jobs since their unpopular taxpayer bailout over a year ago. His remarks, however, competed with the news that the economy’s growth had slowed in the second quarter of the year, reinforcing

1st Charlie Rangel, then you, Barry

President Barack Obama is sending a strong signal to ethics-embattled Harlem Rep. Charles Rangel, telling CBS news that the time has come for the 80-year-old dean of New York’s congressional delegation to end his career “with dignity.” But a person close to the Rangel tells POLITICO the embattled Democrat “doesn’t give a damn about what the president thinks about this” and won’t step down. Yet Obama’s statement clearly changes the dynamic, and makes it much harder for the tenacious Rangel to hold on, according to Congressional sources.

'Scheduled for destruction at some point'

I have just returned from a 2700 mile, ten day speaking tour in the mid-west. The mood of the country is far worse than you have heard. The level of anxiety about the direction and agenda of the federal government and the abject level of crises that most of the states are in is beyond comprehension.
Career jobs and decent paying employment is gone. Forced accumulation of debt through inflation and taxes is rampant. Lack of nourishment because of GMO vegetables and GMO corn fed livestock is managed by the addiction to hundreds of “miracle” pharmaceuticals that play an endless game of downward spiraling levels of health issues for the majority of America’s people.
Ultra liberal Universities crank out graduates in degree fields that are no longer viable but it doesn’t matter, primarily due to the fact that these degrees can’t prove that the people holding them can perform their role without retraining during their first year of work.

Lying, communist pig: Howard Zinn

The prominent “progressive” historian Howard Zinn, whose books are force-fed to young people on many college campuses, was not only a member of the Moscow-controlled and Soviet-funded Communist Party USA (CPUSA) but lied about it, according to an FBI file released on Friday.
The file, consisting of three sections totaling 423 pages, was made available on the FBI’s website and released in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from this writer.
Zinn taught in the political science department of Boston University for 24 years, from 1964 to 1988, and has been a major influence on the modern-day “progressive” movement that backed Barack Obama for president.

Endowed by their Creator?

"...when in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another [England] and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
"We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights [cannot be taken away], that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." - The Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776. (Thomas Jefferson, primary author)
Is that true? Does our sovereign Creator give us certain "unalienable rights" as American citizens that cannot be lost or taken away?

Amnesty by executive order

I am going to make a prediction about what Obama will ultimately do to grant amnesty to millions of illegals in America.
This usurper knows the only way he will ever be able to grant amnesty to millions of illegals is through a presidential executive order. He also knows that this will bring the anger of American-loving patriots to a fever pitch. He also knows that it will no doubt cause major uprisings throughout the fruited plains of America. But Obama has plans to deal with this uprising and fever-pitch anger!
Obama is sly like a fox. He doesn't give a rat's rear end about what the American people want or don't want. His aim is to continue to divide this nation by racial means or any other means that will create a national crisis of some kind that will allow him to declare martial law and shut down all opposition to his Marxist agenda.
Granting amnesty by executive order is just one more tool in the hands of Obama that will be used in the coming months to continue to move this nation at break-neck speed toward a Marxist-controlled government.
Does anyone who knows who this usurper really is doubt that Obama and his Marxist cronies would not do something like this to keep himself and his cronies from being booted from office? We are dealing with people who hate this country and are hell-bent on destroying it.

Mongrel people??

The dumbing down is worse than I thought. People today do not know the difference between race and nationality. If two blacks, one from Kenya and one from Ghana have a child, that is not a mongrel, as they are both of the same race. If two whites, one from France and one from Germany, have a child, he or she also is not a mongrel; the parents are the same race. Now, if a white woman and a black man have a child, as in Obama's case, that is a mongrel offspring, as his parents are two different races. That is not bigotry – that is scientific fact, and it is also biblical.

World's worst cleaning lady is...

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is the world's worst cleaning lady. How has she fulfilled her vaunted promise to "drain the swamp" and preside over the "most ethical Congress in history"? By shrugging her shoulders, downplaying the gravity of myriad ethics charges against corruptocrat Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel and waiting for the "political chips" to "fall where they may." (Snip) Along the way, Rangel has obstructed House investigators, failed to produce documents and refused previous settlement offers — prompting House ethics investigative subcommittee member Rep. Jo Bonner, R-Ala., to reject the Rangel-as-victim narrative. Misfortune didn't befall Rangel. He chose his path.

Obama's Circle of Mentors: Evil in our time

The children's fairytale, "The Emperor's New Clothes" powerfully reveals how societal groupthink and our natural human instincts combine to inhibit individuals from addressing uncomfortable topics. The moral of this children's fable is simple: Observing the obvious and then speaking the obvious, albeit simple in theory, oftentimes requires courage.

Invasion of privacy in the Internet age. Expanding the reach of law enforcement to snoop on e-mail traffic or on Web surfing.

The cultural evils of Christiane Amanpour

This Sunday, former CNN war correspondent and television host Christiane Amanpour will take over as host of ABC’s venerable public affairs show “This Week.” Her selection for the post, however, has caused a surprisingly potent backlash. Putting aside issues such as the suitability of a foreign affairs reporter for a show on domestic politics and reports of behind-the scenes opposition to her appointment, most of the criticism has concentrated on Amanpour’s political views and her allegedly biased reporting. In one form or another, this kind of criticism has dogged Amanpour for a very long time.

Gutting the AZ law with liberal tripe

Please let me get this off my chest! Governor Jan Brewer and the citizens of Arizona don’t hate poor people, illegal aliens, or the law! They had been desperately waiting for the federal law, immigration law to actually be enforced regarding their state but it hasn’t been. And they have been crashing and burning. Arizona has found itself in the lead with home invasions, drug runners and murderers.
We all know by now, for those of you who actually prefer the truth that the Arizona immigration law was simply a clone of the federal law that has been on the books for the last 60 years. There was nothing draconian, magical, conspiratorial, racist or ugly about Arizona’s version. It only empowered the authorities to pursue asking for proof of citizenship status if other behavior was suspicious and against the law. It was NEVER about profiling or stopping Hispanics at random!

The New Black Regiment

Faithful readers of this column are very familiar with my call to locate a modern-day "Black Regiment." The Black Regiment was a moniker affixed to those patriot preachers of colonial America who thundered forth the message of liberty and freedom, and without whose leadership our War for Independence would never have been waged--or won. One can see our Black Regiment web page here.
Well, today's column takes the call one step further. Not only did colonial preachers rally to the cause of freedom and independence, but so did hundreds of colonial businessmen. Without a doubt, had not committed shopkeepers, physicians, lawyers, bankers, merchants, ranchers, and businessmen of all types assisted our fight for independence, the cause would certainly have been lost.

Psyco-loopy drugs and you

I ask questions with period marks to shorten conversations. I avoid eye contact with strangers in fear (maybe it’s anxiety) that I might learn too much about them. I secretly think that Metallica would be making better music if they went back to bludgeoning themselves with party drugs and alcohol, instead of “therapy.” I’m trying to master the Law of Un-attraction to shield myself from a “real job,” small homes and junky cars. And, I’m constantly giving my children advice, only to give it to myself.
Psychiatry, can your drugs help me?
Perhaps these questions are what motivated me to pursue a career as a drug design chemist, winning multiple awards for my work. Nothing gets me more excited than drugs and how they affect the body (except my wife’s abs). I’ve studied their molecular anatomy, risked life and limb to mix and match explosive chemicals in a round bottom flask, and even sold my soul to Big Pharma in exchange for a lab bench and chemical hood.

'Obamanoid Effect' is bone chilling

The Effect the Obama Administration has had on our country is bone chilling. I realize he was voted in by the so-called masses (if we discount any election fraud), but I believe that much of the presence of Barry Sotero resulting in Obamamania is due to intensive grooming and preening, over a period of years, and that he is answering to someone other than the American people. Not all of our nation’s populace and mainstream media haven’t yet fallen out of love with him, but wait until Obamacare takes root.
Americans had better wake-up! Never in our history have we allowed a Congress and the President to drive us down the path of Communism, but we are now, not only allowing it, but also encouraging it. Our compatriots want this, want that, want everything handed to them on a silver platter, but once they take a bite of the food under the domed lid, they will spit it out, even though it has already rotted their bodies. This is what is ongoing now with our government; they have hidden the decaying food they’re feeding us and we have swallowed it all. And we are at a loss as to how to purge ourselves of the rot.

China may have no intentions of using its growing military might, but that is of little comfort for Western countries. From the World Trade Organization to the United Nations, Beijing is happy to use its soft power to get what it wants -- and it is wrong-footing the West at every turn.

Guinea Pigs of America, Part 2

The Polio Vaccine Contamination with SV-40
Most Americans do not remember what a horror the polio epidemic was upon America. In the early 50s, over 33,000 Americans fell crippled or died slow, terrible deaths from polio each year. It was a virus spread casually that infected the lining of the intestines, then the blood stream, and finally the nervous system where it destroyed the victim’s brain stem. The search for a polio vaccine became a national scientific effort supported by very powerful political forces. As a virus, it did not respond to antibiotics as bacteria do, so a vaccine was needed to stop the crippling and killing.
American scientist Jonas Salk came forward with a new idea to eliminate all three strains of polio. He would grow the live virus in a lab and then kill the virus and inject the dead virus into children. Being dead, they could not produce, but would create antibodies against the virus. Thus the immune system would be armed against polio.

Tea Party to Sink in the Harbor?

I hope this doesn’t come across as self-serving, but I have something for you to view that I think is important.
As a friend of mine once said “something’s are better felt, than telt.” This is one of those things.
I have been writing a regular commentary for nearly five years and I am honored to have developed a group of loyal readers, some who actually enjoy what I have to say, and I appreciate the feedback, both pro and con, I receive on a regular basis.
But this one is going to be a little different.
I have been given the opportunity to speak at several Tea Parties here in the Midwest. I guess word travels fast that I have something to say that is worth hearing.
Initially, many of the organizers were hesitant to invite me because of the strong Christian message that I deliver. In their desire to obtain “unity” they were fearful that a message addressing the “moral issues” would be “divisive.”

Invalidating Parts of New Arizona Immigration Law

The central premise of Judge Bolton’s decision enjoining four parts of Arizona’s immigration law rests on the faulty premise that the state law violates the doctrine of federal pre-emption. The law, however, is in aid of federal immigration law and neither obstructs nor increases penalties for immigration law violations. Moreover, it does not attempt to alter the standards used by the federal government in determining who is legally resident in this country. Indeed, the Arizona law is in aid of domestic law affected by illegals in Arizona who are contributing to drug and human trafficking and other serious crimes within the state.
The Judge held the following four parts of the statute unlawful encroachments on federal immigration law, based on the doctrine of pre-emption:
(1) the requirement that an officer make a reasonable attempt to determine the immigration status of a person stopped, detained, or arrested on other grounds if there is a reasonable suspicion that the person is unlawfully present in the U.S. and that a person arrested be required to show proof of lawful immigration status prior to being released (Part of Section 2 of SB 1070);
(2) the creation of a new state crime in support of federal law that requires application for and carriage of alien registration papers (Section 3 of SB 1070);
(3) the creation of a new state crime in support of federal law that prohibits an unauthorized alien from soliciting, applying for, or performing work (Part of Section 5 of SB 1070); and
(4) the authorization of warrantless arrest of a person where there is probable cause to believe the person has committed a public offense that makes the person removable from the United States under federal immigration law (Section 6 of SB 1070).

Almost four years ago, the lanky, pale-skinned, wide-eyed "prophet" of a polygamist sect stepped out of a red Cadillac Escalade during a routine traffic stop just north of Las Vegas and said, "I am Warren Jeffs." In little time, FBI agents arrived to cuff the man who had shared a slot with Osama bin Laden on the Ten Most Wanted List that summer. With that arrest, the then 50-year-old Jeffs took his first step into a four-year legal maze that this week produced yet another surprising twist: the decision by the Utah Supreme Court to throw out

Bay State plan to castrate the Republic

The Massachusetts legislature seems poised to enact a plan, as evil as it is ingenious, to run an end-around on the electoral college and the Constitution. It would work by tying the Bay State's 12 electoral votes to the winner of the popular vote nationwide. If a number of states equivalent to at least 270 electoral votes were to pass the measure, it would effectively neuter the college. I know that this is remedial for Cornerites, but the electoral college is one of the last vestiges of federalism we have left. It reflects the Founders' conviction that the method...

House ethics tried to wrangle Good Time Charlie

The Democrats have an impending problem surfacing at an inopportune time, the investigation of Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) by the House Ethics Committee. This comes as a surprise to many — the House has an Ethics Committee? “House ethics” is an oxymoron, much like the “Senate intelligence” that led up to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. When she is not lassoing votes for bills members of Congress have not read and the public does not want, Nancy “The Enforcer” Pelosi uses a financial cattle prod to get her way.

Climate change to increase illegal aliens

El cambio climático para aumentar los extranjeros ilegales
A warming climate could see millions of adult Mexicans migrate to the US as rising temperatures cause a drop in crop yields, according to a study by researchers at Princeton University. For every 10% of lost crop yields in Mexico, another 2% of Mexicans are likely to leave their country, the study says. The research draws a clear connection between climate change and immigration - two heavily debated issues in the US. It says warming may bring between 1.4m and 6.7m Mexicans to the US by 2080.

John Kerry's 'Dog'

Will common sense help Glenn Beck?

Struggling to maintain composure in front of 6,000 fans Glenn Beck disclosed that he had been diagnosed with a serious eye condition, macular dystrophy, a progressive genetic disorder that may lead to blindness. As he told his story he took a shot at health care reform, quipping that he “went to the best doctor I can find while I could still go to the best doctor I can find.” And sadly, all this best doctor that money can buy could tell him was that he would just have to wait and see what happens. At once, as he fought back his tears, Glenn Beck unwittingly became the symbol for millions of Americans, liberals and conservatives alike, who go to their doctor looking for solutions and leave in a humbled and hopeless frame of mind.
Glenn Beck has already turned to prayer for his hope, as would millions of Americans in a similar situation. But where are the healing doctors when they are needed? Sure you can pay a fortune for the Disney-World, high-tech medicine of today, but does that do more for anyone than the country doctor who used to have time to make house calls? The doctor whose mere presence instilled the hope that everything would now be fine. There is something terribly wrong in American medicine today, and it’s not just the cost.

Americans cannot afford to be intimated

At the end of our Tea Party Express tour III, at a dinner for the whole team, Mark Williams and I had our arms around each other and believe it or not, he was crying (not for me, but for the realization of the moment). He was telling me how after meeting my father (who was there), he better understood me as a person (for those idiots who are always looking for an angle) not as a Black person- but just a person who was Black in a post Civil Rights era. He talked about the Civil Rights movement. Mark’s emotion was a witness of how far we’ve come as a nation, as well as how far we have to go. It moved me to realize that this man was not afraid to express his heart no matter who was around. Yeah, Mark Williams can be an extremist all right—not perfect—but an extremist in expressing his views in a way that forces one to decide. He was a fearless patriot during the Tea Party Express tour, and he will continue to be one, I think, even more so.

Local action

Growing numbers of concerned, dedicated Americans are joining the nationwide protests against ever-higher taxes; the outrage of Obamacare; the bailouts and the Federal Reserve; the growing government surveillance society; and the destruction of private property rights through policies including Sustainable Development. The question now among these new activists is “what’s the next step?”
It’s time for action, and to that end, I am announcing the Freedom Action National Conference, to be held August 12 – 14, 2010 at the Dolce Hotel in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.
Local action, from strengthening State 10th Amendment rights, to exposing the efforts of organizations like the International Council on Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI), is the focus of the Freedom Action National Conference. If we stand firm at home, against federal mandates and international policies, we can go a long way toward limiting the power and growth of the Federal Government.

Electoral College: Keep it

America’s Founding Fathers did NOT form a “democracy.” They formed a “representative republic” and guaranteed every state a “republican form of government” in the US Constitution. Contrary to modern propaganda, a democracy and a representative republic are NOT the same thing.
With an Electoral College, we have a “representative republic.” Without it, we will have a pure “democracy,” which Thomas Jefferson defined as - “nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.”
Those who wish to fully understand and appreciate the historical purposes behind our Founders Electoral College design should take some time to study the related facts here. The Founders had VERY strong reasons for everything they put in place to protect and preserve freedom and liberty. The people trying to destroy it all have their reasons too…

Obama's latest leak problem

War worth it? You bet

Letter writer Ed Chmura basically asks if war is worth the cost of the deaths of people [July 27]. First, to clarify, the U.S. has not invaded Pakistan. There have been strikes at the borders of Pakistan and Afghanistan because that's where the terrorists are hiding, and much of this has been done as a joint effort between the U.S. and Pakistan. Also, I would question his statement of "the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people." The actual numbers are far below this.
Now, regarding the cost of war. It's true that human life is sacred. Does Mr. Chmura's respect for life extend to the Iraqi people whom Saddam and his supporters murdered in very gruesome ways (execution, exposure to chemical weapons, fed through an industrial shredder, etc.)? How many Iraqis are alive today who would not be if Saddam were still alive and in power? If you believe the war in Iraq was wrong, you are by definition saying you want Saddam to still be alive and in power.
What about other wars? World War I. World War II. The Civil War. In the Civil War alone, over 600,000 Americans died. Were these worth the cost? Korea and Vietnam tend to cast shadows, but I would argue that they, too, were worth the cost. Korea today has a vast difference between the North and the South. Our withdrawal from Vietnam directly led to the rise of the Khmer Rouge and the death of around 7 million people.
Wars are not pretty. They are at best an imperfect solution to a problem in an imperfect world. John Stuart Mill said it quite well: "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

Backwater health care is our future

As Americans helplessly watch the Obama administration from afar move on the various pillars of our nation with the veracity of an invading force, it must be continually on our minds not to forget the tragedy of the passing of Obama's reinvention of the American health-care system.
Known as Obamacare, this beastly spawn of Democratic pride is nothing more than the complete reversal of the American way of life – that is, the individual responsibility for one's own health – torn from us in one singular vote, providing the stepping stone to crush individualism in the present age in favor of government control over our finances, health and welfare. Like the slow decomposition of a dead animal, week by week we are rudely exposed to more and more about the law we never had a chance to learn about before it was enacted, a law that will – as Obama so ineloquently and bluntly declared his intention during the 2008 campaign – "fundamentally change America."
To tear down the pillars of our nation is Obama's goal. Obamacare is the fundamental vehicle with which he will do this. Never mind the flawed finance bill Congress recently passed, the monstrous debt or the unconstitutional takeover of private companies, it is inexorably Obamacare that will sap us of our liberties like no other law ever created. It is this law on which we must not lose focus. Any Republican who is now seeking office must pass a new litmus test: Will they go on the record with a pledge to repeal Obamacare? If not, they are not a lover of liberty and have no place in the next Congress, America's seminal Congress, that must make aggressive strides to overturn the most rancid debacle of our time.
If we lose sight of what Obamacare really plans to accomplish, then as it takes effect and private insurance disappears, as private health care outside of a bureaucratic, governmentally run system is deemed illegal, as private consultation over health care decisions are punishable by fines or even jail time, not much else will matter. We will have fundamentally lost our freedom, and the bureaucrat will sit high over each and every one of us with utter disdain and disregard for what Jefferson called our "certain unalienable rights." We will be relegated to the faceless masses, collectively made subservient to the "better public good."
Obamacare will become the vehicle for a new America where health care is no longer a free enterprise but a finite resource where the best is given preferentially either to the elites or to the politically savvy. For the rest of us, back-alley health care will be our lot.
Obama and those who voted for his health-care plan have used their power to mount up staunchly against the individual in favor of the collective. This law is not only unconstitutional but anti-American in its spirit.
Back-alley health care is where America will find itself tomorrow if today our credo is not only opposition but complete and total repeal of Obama's most egregious attack on our nation and the individual rights it was born to uphold.

For a man who came to power by harnessing the potential of the Internet, President Obama has been oddly out of sorts in recent days as the medium turned against him. Last week, his advisers embarrassed themselves when they fired a mid-level Agriculture Department official over a supposedly racist video clip on a right-wing blog -- only to apologize and offer to rehire her when they learned that the innocent woman had been the victim of selective excerpting. Then, on Monday afternoon, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs found himself trying to tell the world to pay no attention...

There are new details in the controversy over Sen. John Kerry's brand new boat. Kerry may still be on the hook for a half million dollars in excise taxes because he docked his yacht in Massachusetts less than six months after buying it. The controversy came up following a report that Kerry moored the multi-million dollar yacht in Rhode Island , rather than the Bay State to save on sales tax. A spokesman for the senator says Kerry never intended to evade taxes and kept the boat in Rhode Island for maintenance reasons.

Letters say Obama a scumbag liar

Forget Wikileaks. For genuine scandal, check out the newly released letter from the U.S. embassy in London to Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond. It reveals a) the Obama administration’s passivity in the run-up to Scotland’s release of Lockerbie bomber Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, b) the administration’s deception in claiming to have had no foreknowledge of Megrahi’s release, and c) the administration’s inability to persuade other governments of anything. Although President Obama previously said that he was “surprised, disappointed and angry” about Scotland’s release of Megrahi, the letter makes plain that there was no surprise whatsoever.

Taxing, very taxing

After fighting what I believed was an unconstitutional federal income tax, six years ago I capitulated, filed returns, and have since then, paid $120,054 in combined state and federal income taxes (including the interest and penalties). At the time, I was also working toward a settlement with the IRS. What derailed this settlement process was becoming a target for an audit. My experiences provide a case study of why we need to get rid of the income tax on wages and salaries.
Years ago I became interested in the income tax and wanted to understand how it worked. I had read a lot of the literature on the subject. In doing so, I noticed there was a big gapping hole in the literature. No one had written about the intent of the Income Tax Amendment when it was debated and finally ratified on February 25, 1913. Plus I thought it would be easier to research the purpose and intent of the income tax rather than study the Internal Revenue Code. I focused my research on the years 1908 to 1913, as this was when the income tax amendment was debated. Because I discovered so much new information in doing this research, I wrote a book about it.

The Disarmament of America

A determined campaign is being waged in the United States that is perpetuated by the Godless humanists who endeavor, at the leading of Satan the greatest criminal mind in the Universe, to pave the way to a sheer control of the people and to establish the United States as a constituent of a one-world order.
This campaign is directed at a disarming of the people that they might be deprived of the tools to resist or challenge tyrannical totalitarian governance. But, hold on you might exclaim - this is not a totalitarian state, it is a Constitutional Republic. The heck you say, then how is it that our utilitarian communist president, Barack Obama, has been able to, in eighteen short months, accomplish the expropriation of private capital and industry and to establish a now nearly autonomous dictatorship under his despotic control? How is it that he has been able to assemble what amounts to a communist politburo via the unsanctioned appointments of an assemblage of communist progressives with an ascendancy over the will of the people? This could only take place under a totalitarian system of government.
The United States as one of the last remaining societies where citizens have, by established constitutional law, the right to possess and bear arms must be dealt with by the communist/socialist internationalists if they are to exercise an iron control over the peoples of the world that they might achieve their goal of a one-world system of government.

The Logic of Thomas Jefferson

For several months now, I’ve been writing articles about logic, and I’ve made connections between that subject and the founding of the American Republic.
As a corollary, I’ve mentioned that the disappearance of logic as a primary subject in US schools has accompanied a long, gradual erosion of individual freedom and independence.
Now I’ve discovered an even closer link: It leads to Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence.

"Top Secret America"

The Monday, July 19, 2010, edition of The Washington Post featured an investigative report entitled "Top Secret America," with the subtitle, "A hidden world, growing beyond control." The report begins, "The top-secret world the government created in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, has become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work.
"These are some of the findings of a two-year investigation by The Washington Post that discovered what amounts to an alternative geography of the United States, a Top Secret America hidden from public view and lacking in thorough oversight. After nine years of unprecedented spending and growth, the result is that the system put in place to keep the United States safe is so massive that its effectiveness is impossible to determine.

Why people fear freedom

Some years ago, on the Sean Hannity radio show, Mr. Hannity was interviewing KABC Los Angeles libertarian radio talk-show host Larry Elder. He asked, at the time, why was it that libertarians, when running for political office, only receive 3 percent of the vote. Mr. Elder was quick in his reply: "The reason is because people fear freedom." I was taken aback by the response. I fully accept it now. Americans, sadly, do fear freedom and what it entails.
Freedom means success, as well as failure; freedom means making decisions, which can include the wrong ones; freedom means taking responsibility and owning up; freedom means owning yourself, body and soul.
Freedom entails the right to associate with whomever you please, and not getting punished for it; freedom means to take risks in all human endeavors; freedom means to think and to speak your mind and not get punished by anyone or anything; freedom means living your life as you so choose it.
Freedom means tolerating others' opinions, peculiarities, religion and lifestyles, and not wanting to punish them for their differences; freedom means falling down and having the courage to get back up again; Freedom means taking responsibility for your own welfare, family, business, property or other; freedom means working for a goal and having no obstacles or any impediments in the way.
Freedom means praise, as well as scorn; freedom means standing up and facing the consequences, good and bad; freedom means doing what you please, provided that you do not physically harm another; freedom means standing up and reminding the powers that be that there are limits.
Freedom means adhering to a Constitution and not deviating from it; freedom also means choosing the road on which you want to travel and doing it peacefully; freedom means taking responsibility for your words, deeds and actions; and, finally, freedom means standing tall and walking into the sunshine of liberty.
Yes, people fear freedom. They fear freedom because it sometimes requires pain, instead of pleasure; they fear freedom because at times it means struggle and stress; they fear freedom because at times it can be burdensome; and they even fear freedom because then they cannot "pass the buck." That is why some Americans who would like to surrender their freedoms and liberties to achieve and obtain security from government and the welfare state. To me, this is not only sad, it is very dangerous. It would be the equivalent of surrendering one's soul or being to Lucifer himself. Benjamin Franklin said it best when he said that those who give up their liberties for the sake of security deserve neither liberty nor security. How true those words are today.

Today, the left has similar contempt for those who take a hard line on Islamic terror. The liberal and leftist media routinely place quote marks around the words War on Terror. To the left, such a war is manufactured by rightists for nefarious reasons (oil, self-enrichment, imperialism, etc.). Indeed, the Obama administration has actually forbidden use of the term "Islamic terror." America is at war with a nameless enemy. The real enemies the Democratic administration is prepared to name are the Republican Party, tea parties, Fox News and talk radio.

Obama religion adviser linked to terrorists

A religion adviser to President Obama has close ties to a radical Muslim group that was an unindicted co-conspirator in a scheme to raise money for Hamas.
The group, the Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA, has an extensive relationship with the Obama administration.
In February, Obama named a Chicago Muslim, Eboo Patel, to his Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Patel is the founder and executive director of Chicago-based Interfaith Youth Core, which says it promotes pluralism by teaming people of different faiths on service projects.
Patel is listed on ISNA's official speakers bureau.
Here's the rundown on Obama's ties to "communists, socalists and other anti-American extremists – all in "The Manchurian President."
From his own comments, Patel apparently is a member of ISNA. Upon the August 2007 election of the group's president, Ingrid Mattson, Patel told USA Today, "I'm proud to have her elected as my president."

Strike on Iran more likely now

WASHINGTON – A former CIA director says military action against Iran now seems more likely because no matter what the U.S. does diplomatically, Tehran keeps pushing ahead with its suspected nuclear program.
Michael Hayden, a CIA chief under President George W. Bush, says that during his tenure a strike was "way down the list" of options. But he tells CNN's "State of the Union" that such action now "seems inexorable."

Anger for years in AZ

As the days tick down until the Arizona immigration law takes effect, the state stands as a monument to the anger over illegal immigration that is present in so many places. The anger has been simmering for years, and erupted into a full-blown fury with the murder of a prominent rancher on the border earlier this year. The killing became a powerful rallying cry for immigration reform and the sweeping new law set to take effect Thursday, barring any last-minute legal action. But it does not tell the whole story about how Arizona got to this point.

Pissing on America: WikiLeaks

The most consequential news item of the week will obviously be -- or at least should be -- the massive new leak by WikiLeaks of 90,000 pages of classified material chronicling the truth about the war in Afghanistan from 2004 through 2009. Those documents provide what The New York Times calls "an unvarnished, ground-level picture of the war in Afghanistan that is in many respects more grim than the official portrayal." The Guardian describes the documents as "a devastating portrait of the failing war in Afghanistan, revealing how coalition forces have killed hundreds of civilians in unreported incidents, Taliban attacks have soared and Nato commanders fear neighbouring Pakistan and Iran are fueling the insurgency."

Not listening to the coming storm

“You don’t know my people—the squalor, superstitions, the fatalistic sloth that theyy’ve wallowed in for generations. You don’t know what you’re in for if that fleet of brutes ever lands in your lap. Everything will change in this country of yours. They will swallow you up.” Jean Raspail, “Camp of the Saints”

The author served notice to his beloved France 30 years ago with that incisive novel. The French didn’t listen. The United States isn’t listening, either!
After the past dozen terror attacks around the world such as 9/11, Madrid train bombings, London bombings, nightclub bombings and Theo Van Gogh stabbed in the streets of Amsterdam—in DDecember 2005, Paris, France burned. Their ‘fatalistic sloth’ rose up with Molotov cocktails that torched over 10,000 cars.
America’s own suicide stands SO self-evident through Raspail’s words when he talks about Europe proceeding toward its own peril when it allowed the rate of immigration to exceed the rate of assimilation. They swallowed the deadliest scorpion in the Middle Eastern desert by inviting a stone-age culture and religion into their advanced European culture.
Raspail said the immigrants were, “righteous in their loathing of anything and everything that smacked of present-day Western society, and boundless in their love of whatever might destroy it.”

Political Goon Squads

"Accuse your adversaries of what you do." - Karl Marx

Clad in military attire, New Black Panther bullies used weapons, racial insults and profanity to deter voters, and federal prosecutors in response filed a civil complaint in Philadelphia. However, the case was mysteriously and abruptly killed by a top Justice Department official just as a federal judge was preparing to punish the Black Panthers for ignoring the charges and refusing to appear in court.
While the mainstream news media lambaste the Tea Partiers with accusations of racism, violence, hatred and other transgressions, these same reporters and pundits routinely turn a blind eye towards the violence perpetrated by liberal-left "activists."

Power Elite, Part 16

Regarding the PE, Prouty explained: “The power elite is not a group from one nation or even of one alliance of nations. It operates throughout the world and no doubt has done so for many, many centuries.” Buckminster Fuller described them as “vastly ambitious individuals who [have] become so effectively powerful because of their ability to remain invisible while operating behind the national scenery…. Always their victories [are] in the name of some powerful sovereign-ruled country. The real power structures [are] always the invisible ones behind the visible sovereign powers.” During WWII, Winston Churchill made reference to intimate friends of a “High Cabal” (remember David Rockefeller’s admission that he was part of a “secret cabal”).
After WWII, the Nazi Gehlen Organization was used in the Cold War against the Soviets. And just like PE agent Raymond Robins (a protégé of Col. House) could tell Lenin what to do, shortly after PE member David Rockefeller visited the USSR in the early 1960s, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev suddenly found himself exiled to Siberia.

Worst enemy of CA

The worst enemy cancer has is not some chemotherapy admixture, it is not surgery, and it is not radiation treatment. The worst enemy cancer has comes in the form of a brilliant, soft spoken internist, oncologist and immunologist in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. He is Dr. Charles B. Simone of the Simone Protective Cancer Center, author of Cancer and Nutrition: A Ten Point Plan to Reduce Your Chances of Getting Cancer (1982) and many other remarkable books on preventing and treating cancer.
This gentle, unassuming man, approachable by everyone and possessed of an affable and compassionate manner, has prolonged the life of many cancer patients—long past the time their attending physicians thought possible. As he told me many years ago, when there is no known cure, you do not do everything imaginable to kill the cancer and thereby kill the patient, you do everything imaginable to manage the cancer and extend the life of the patient.
