Feel The Bern!

bbbb

I’m considering casting a vote for Bernie Sanders. Because, it’s time to elect an overt socialist to the Presidency. The only difference between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders is that he admits he’s a socialist. The only difference between either of them and Jeb Bush, et al, is that Jeb claims to be a conservative.

I think the country will be primed and ready for an overt socialist by 2016 and I might just help it along. It’s safer than targeting politicians for violence and gets us to the same place as all of our currently viable options. It doesn’t matter which party wins, we will be a progressive nation. The sooner we offend the sensibilities of enough Americans, the sooner honest Americans will demand an end to the destruction. Forward!

Bernie-mania swept through here last night, as more than 7,500 screaming, sign-waving supporters packed a downtown arena — many lining up hours early — for surging Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders.

The outpouring came as a Bay State Democratic congressman warned one-time sure-shot Hillary Clinton has an “excitement problem” in the Democratic race for the White House.

“In case you didn’t notice, this is a big turnout,” Sanders told the cheering crowd at Cross Insurance Arena. “From Maine to California — we have friends from Alaska and Hawaii as well — the American people understand that establishment politics and establishment economics is not working for America.”

The rally started 20 minutes late so the people stuck in line outside could filter in, and nearly every seat was filled. Some supporters waved homemade signs, including one that read “#Bern Baby Bern” and “Feel the Bern.”

“We love you,” one woman shouted toward the end of Sanders’ speech.

Thousands more watched a YouTube live stream of the rally on the campaign’s website.

“Hillary is not bad. It’s just, we all know she is having an excitement problem. We all know that. It’s not a secret,”

Al Jazeera Mocks & Lectures America

There is something inherently wrong with being lectured about cheese, by a fat woman. Likewise, being mocked about guns by effete metrosexual hipster douchebags and Boy George wannabes. Enjoy.

We have many faults – and though every problem in this video can be directly attributed to progressives (guns are a net-plus) – we will still use our fat, cheese-eating, gun-toting American asses to crush you smelly, goat-humping punks any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

Con-Con Vs Nullification

Writes Rasmussen Reports, “A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 33% of Likely U.S. Voters now believe that states should have the right to ignore federal court rulings if their elected officials [dis]agree with them. That’s up nine points from 24% when we first asked this question in February. Just over half (52%) disagree, down from 58% in the earlier survey. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided.”

HopenChange™ Update: Everything Is Awesome!

Courtesy of Zero Hedge

The devastation of the US labor force continues.

In what was an “unambiguously” unpleasant June jobs payrolls report, with both April and May jobs revised lower, the fact that the number of Americans not in the labor force soared once again, this time by a whopping 640,000 or the most since April 2014 to a record 93.6 million, with the result being a participation rate of 62.6 or where itt was in September 1977, will merely catalyze even more upside to the so called “market” which continues to reflect nothing but central bank liquidity, and thus – the accelerating deterioration of the broader economy.

My Views On The Confederate & Gay Flags

I would like to take just a moment of your time to see how many people I can piss off today.

safe_image

The Confederate flag, or Stars & Bars, as it is known colloquially is a symbol of heritage. It is the symbol of a proud south who stood up against the tyranny of federal aggression. They fought valiantly, but ultimately lost. It is perfectly reasonable for people to cherish and honor the memory of those who fought against the federal government. Those people tried to revolt, but it didn’t work.

Sadly, the reason they decided to revolt, was to protect their “right” to own other human beings. This is an abhorrent reason to kill your fellow man. What a vile, repulsive justification for the killing of a half-million Americans. The display of this flag – and the queer flag – should be limited to the exercise of free speech rights by the individual and has no place in government. I support the right of individuals to display any flag they so choose, on their own property. The government should not honor failed attempts at revolution or the social victories of individuals.

If you want to fly a Nazi flag, a queer flag, or a Confederate flag at your home, on your car, or at your business – knock yourself out. Governments should not be honoring those things. Just remember that decisions have consequences and today’s world is all about shaming people into silence and crushing dissent.

Export-Import Corporate Welfare Bank Quietly Died Last Night

These are…ahem, were the subsidies DocO was saying made international trade unfair. What? The Feds let a money-sucking waste of dollars die and reduce our overall outlay? What kind of bizarre world is this?

Good riddance.

The Export-Import Bank died last night when its charter expired. After 81 years, what is commonly known as Boeing’s Bank is headed toward Washington’s trash bin.

When Congress returns it could revive Ex-Im, which primarily subsidizes big business exports. But a proper burial for what Barack Obama once called “corporate welfare” would save Americans money, reduce economic injustice, and promote economic growth.

The Bank was established in 1934 to promote trade with the Soviet Union, ExIm now is one of a score of federal agencies tasked with encouraging exports. The agency exists to borrow at government rates to provide credit at less than market rates for select exporters, mostly corporate behemoths.

ExIm claims to be friendly to small business, but cherchez the money: it goes to Big Business. According to Veronique de Rugy of the Mercatus Center, between 2007 and 2013 the Bank subsidized $66.7 billion in sales by Boeing. ExIm also underwrote $8.3 billion for General Electric, $5.2 billion for Bechtel, $4.9 billion for Caterpillar and its subsidiary Solar Turbine, $3.2 billion for CBI Americas, $3.0 for Exxon Mobil, $2.1 billion for Applied Materials, $2.0 billion for Westinghouse, and $1.4 billion for Noble Drilling. During that period Boeing enjoyed 35 percent, GE 4.4 percent, and Bechtel 2.7 percent of the Bank’s largesse.

In 2012, noted Timothy Carney of the Washington Examiner, the aircraft maker accounted for 83 percent of all loan guarantees. The following year just five firms collected 93 percent of the loan guarantees. Also in 2013 the top ten ExIm beneficiaries accounted for two-thirds of the Bank’s total activities: Boeing, General Electric, Bechtel, Applied Materials, Caterpillar, Space Systems/Loral, Komatsu America, Case New Holland, Ford, and Sikorsky Aircraft. Other frequent beneficiaries include Dow Chemical, John Deere, and Lockheed Martin

Man Arrested For Racist Signs At Black Church

This type of behavior is a sickening, disgraceful outrage. He should be punished to the maximum extent the law allows…hate crimes penalties an all. No one should be forced to live in fear because of someone else’s racism.

A Colorado Springs man was arrested after police believe he left racist messages outside a church.

Vincent Broughton, 44,… is facing charges for committed a bias-motivated crime and disorderly conduct. The signs were posted outside the New Covenant church that is predominately attended by African Americans. One sign references the KKK. Another reads, “Black men beware, you are the target.”

The messages had the congregation on edge. “We locked our doors this morning, so we were inside, but it shouldn’t be that way. You shouldn’t have to lock your doors in the church, it’s just… I’m speechless,” said Pastor Roland Joyner.

Police said Broughton admitted to posting the flyers but did not explain why he targeted the church.

A Sad Look Into The Future Of The World

When you rely on the government, sadly, this is what you get. The politicians who made you those promises are long gone, living off the returns of their ill-gotten gains, and secure in the knowledge that you will only hurt yourselves and others in response to their criminality.

Pensioners

In chaotic scenes, thousands of angry elderly Greeks on Wednesday besieged the nation’s crisis-hit banks, which have reopened to allow them to withdraw vital cash from their state pensions.

“Let them go to hell!” said one pensioner waiting to get his money, after failed talks between Athens and international creditors sparked a week-long banking shutdown.

The Greek government, which closed the banks and imposed strict capital controls after cash machines ran dry, has temporarily reopened almost 1,000 branches to allow pensioners without cards to withdraw 120 euros ($133) to last the rest of the week. The move has again sparked lengthy queues at banks across Greece — and outrage from many retirees who are regarded as among the most vulnerable in society, exposed to a vicious and lengthy economic downturn. Under banking restrictions imposed all week, ordinary Greeks can withdraw up to 60 euros a day for each credit or debit card — but many of the elderly population do not have cards.

Another customer, a retired mariner who asked not to be named, told AFP he had no cash to buy crucial medicine for his sick wife. “I worked for 50 years on the sea and now I am the beggar for 120 euros,” he said. “I took out 120 euros — but I have no money for medication for my wife, who had an operation and is ill,” he added.

NYC: Illegal To Ask About Criminal History

Awesome.

In front of emotional supporters, Mayor de Blasio signed legislation Monday that will prohibit employers from inquiring about a candidate’s criminal record prior to a job offer.

“Today I see hope for people like me,” said Marilyn Scales, 52, of the Bronx, who said she never has had a full-time job because of her record for dealing heroin.

The mayor also signed legislation to step up regulation of the car wash industry. Car washes will have to obtain biannual city licenses as well as a $150,000 bond to cover costs if they are sued for wage theft.

Former Senator Calls Washington A Corrosive Sewer

Couldn’t have said it better myself, except I’d substitute the word brooms…

Screen-Shot-2015-06-29-at-6_52_57-PM

On a more personal level, how can public service be promoted as an ideal to young people when this sewer corrupts our Republic? At this point in early twenty-first-century America, the greatest service our nation’s young people could provide is to lead an army of outraged young Americans armed with brooms on a crusade to sweep out the rascals and rid our capital of the money changers, rent seekers, revolving door dancers, and special interest deal makers and power brokers and send them back home to make an honest living, that is, if they still remember how to do so.

Our ancestors did not depart Europe and elsewhere to seek freedom and self-government alone. They came to these shores to escape social and political systems that were corrosive and corrupt. Two and a quarter centuries later, we are returning to those European practices. We are in danger of becoming a different kind of nation, one our founders would not recognize and would deplore.

In addition to the rise of the national security state, and the concentration of wealth and power in America, no development in modern times sets us apart more from the nation originally bequeathed to us than the rise of the special interest state. There is a Gresham’s law related to the republican ideal. Bad politics drives out good politics. Legalized corruption drives men and women of stature, honor, and dignity out of the halls of government. Self-respecting individuals cannot long tolerate a system of election and reelection so dependent on cultivating the favor of those known to expect access in return. Such a system is corrosive to the soul.

– From the Gary Hart article, Gary Hart: America’s Founding Principles Are in Danger of Corruption

Forward: How To Reduce Youth Unemployment

Here it comes again.

I know a better way to fight ISIS. It starts with an idea that should appeal the better angels of both hawks and doves: National service for all 18- to 28-year-olds.

Require virtually every young American—the civic-minded millennial generation—to complete a year of service through programs such as Teach for America, AmeriCorps, the Peace Corps, or the U.S. military, and two things will happen:

1. Virtually every American family will become intimately invested in the nation’s biggest challenges, including poverty, education, income inequality, and America’s place in a world afire.

2. Military recruiting will rise to meet threats posed by ISIS and other terrorist networks, giving more people skin in a very dangerous game.

Yes please. Propagandize my children from the cradle to adulthood! Force them into some Stalinesque national patriotism program. There was a time, when I would have said that compulsory service was appropriate. I would have said that military service was, too. I just don’t know if I believe that anymore. I will not advise my children to serve a nation that seeks to destroy what I am trying to build in them… namely, a fierce sense of independence. I won’t discourage them if they feel it is right, but I won’t encourage them, either.

You know, I served because I was taught that a man should defend his country. From the time I was a little boy, I just understood that this was the plan. Though I want my son to grow into an RD Walker Jr style badass, I don’t want to send him to die for dumb shit like the objectives our country seems to have these days.

Esoteric Knowledge: Progressives & The Coming Global Government

  • Current State Of The World

 

No honest person can view the current moral, economic, philosophical, or physical state of our world and call it a net-positive. We have achieved greater technological advancement than at any other time in human history. We have access to the breadth of human knowledge and understanding at our very fingertips, yet people are getting dumber.

Distracted by our base desires and enamored of the profane, our world is disintegrating before our eyes. Surely, when Jesus said (Matt 24:37) “But, as were the days of Noah, so shall be the coming of the Son of man” he was referring to a time like today. I’m not saying that the end is nigh, but if my degenerate self is disgusted with this world, I can only imagine that God is less-pleased.

To be sure, all cultures have thought the world degraded in their time. I read a book called “As In The Days Of Noah” where the writer exhorted the world to prepare for the imminent return of the Lord because of the depraved and debauched state of the world. That was in the 1840’s… so, a grain of salt may be in order.

Always, Always, Always Watch The Other Hand

If you’re looking for a sign to start moving your money out of mutual funds, maybe you should take a look. Note from below – It’s okay to be too early getting your money out of the system but it’s fatal to be just one second too late.

BlackRock Inc. is seeking government clearance to set up an internal program in which mutual funds that get hit with client redemptions could temporarily borrow money from sister funds that are flush with cash.  – Bloomberg News

We may have been early on warning about leaving your savings in the financial system. It’s okay to be too early getting your money out of the system but it’s fatal to be just one second too late.  The gates are already in place in money market funds just waiting for the signal to be lowered

BlackRock’s filing with the SEC to enable “have cash” funds to lend to “heavy redemption” funds should send shivers down the spine of anyone with funds invested in any BlackRock fund.  In fact, it should horrify anyone invested in any mutual fund.

Larry Fink, BlackRock’s chief executive officer, said in December that U.S. bond funds face increased volatility, adding that he expected a “dysfunctional market” lasting days or even weeks within the next two years.   – Bloomberg

I warned last summer when the money market funds received authorization to put redemption gates in place that it was time to remove your money from these instruments.  The only reason a gate would be needed is if the people running the funds believed that there were risk events coming that would necessitate the gates.

BlackRock has already arranged credit lines from banks to cover the possibility of a redemption stampede from its riskier funds.  It’s clear the elitists running BlackRock now foresee events coming that will trigger a redemption run because the fund company is seeking SEC approval for the ability to take cash from funds with cash and lend that cash to funds that will need cash when the redemption rush begins.

Sen Sessions (R-AL) – Congress Has Lost Americas Trust

I have a great deal of respect for Senator Sessions. He’s tracking right there with me on most issues of import. See how his positions align with yours.

Americans increasingly believe that their country isn’t serving its own citizens. They need look no further than a bipartisan vote of Congress that will transfer congressional power to the Executive Branch and, in turn, to a transnational Pacific Union and the global interests who will help write its rules.

The same routine plays out over and again. We are told a massive bill must be passed, all the business lobbyists and leaders tell us how grand it will be, but that it must be rushed through before the voters spoil the plan. As with Obamacare and the Gang of Eight, the politicians meet with the consultants to craft the talking points—not based on what the bill actually does, but what they hope people will believe it does. And when ordinary Americans who never asked for the plan, who don’t want the plan, who want no part of the plan, resist, they are scorned, mocked, and heaped with condescension.

Washington broke arms and heads to get that 60th vote—not one to spare—to impose on the American people a plan which imperils their jobs, wages, and control over their own affairs. It is remarkable that so much energy has been expended on advancing the things Americans oppose, and preventing the things Americans want.

For instance: thousands of loyal Americans have been laid off and forced to train the foreign workers brought in to fill their jobs—at Disney, at Southern California Edison, across the country. Does Washington rush to their defense? No, the politicians and the lobbyists rush to move legislation that would double or triple the very program responsible for replacing them.

This ‘econometarian’ ideology holds that if a company can increase its bottom line —whether by insourcing foreign workers or outsourcing production—then it’s always a win, never a downside.

President Obama, and allies in Congress, have won this fast-track vote. But, in exchange, they may find that they are losing something far greater: the trust of the American people. Americans have a fundamental, decent, and just demand: that the people they elect defend their interests. And every issue to come before us in the coming months will have to pass this test: does it strengthen, or weaken, the position of the everyday, loyal American citizen?”

But we leave it to Ellen Brown to sum up just what this “sentence first, verdict afterwards” bill is really all about… a corporate coup d’etat…

`Let the jury consider their verdict,’ the King said, for about the twentieth time that day.

`No, no!’ said the Queen. `Sentence first–verdict afterwards.’

`Stuff and nonsense!’ said Alice loudly. `The idea of having the sentence first!’

`Hold your tongue!’ said the Queen, turning purple.

`I won’t!’ said Alice.

`Off with her head!’ the Queen shouted at the top of her voice.

Revolution In The Age Of Selfie: A Brave New World

We can engage in social-media badassery, or not… We can vote, or not… We can join public interest groups, or not… We will never have any material impact on the absolute tyranny being built around us until the shooting starts or we surrender and accept our shackles.

It sucks, but we’ve been passive so long that I honestly don’t believe we can vote our way back from this. Collapse or fight, those are the only viable paths I can see back to the America of our founding. Both have a terrible cost and an even more terrible likelihood that what emerges on the other end is worse than what we have, today.

I have often considered the juxtaposition of George Orwell’s “1984” and Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World”. I could explain my view, but Neil Postman said it much more succinctly in “Amusing Ourselves To Death”:

“We were keeping our eye on 1984. When the year came and the prophecy didn’t, thoughtful Americans sang softly in praise of themselves. The roots of liberal democracy had held. Wherever else the terror had happened, we, at least, had not been visited by Orwellian nightmares.

But we had forgotten that alongside Orwell’s dark vision, there was another – slightly older, slightly less well known, equally chilling: Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. Contrary to common belief even among the educated, Huxley and Orwell did not prophesy the same thing. Orwell warns that we will be overcome by an externally imposed oppression. But in Huxley’s vision, no Big Brother is required to deprive people of their autonomy, maturity and history. As he saw it, people will come to love their oppression, to adore the technologies that undo their capacities to think.

What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one. Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism. Orwell feared that the truth would be concealed from us. Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Orwell feared we would become a captive culture. Huxley feared we would become a trivial culture, preoccupied with some equivalent of the feelies, the orgy porgy, and the centrifugal bumblepuppy.

As Huxley remarked in Brave New World Revisited, the civil libertarians and rationalists who are ever on the alert to oppose tyranny “failed to take into account man’s almost infinite appetite for distractions.” In 1984, Orwell added, people are controlled by inflicting pain. In Brave New World, they are controlled by inflicting pleasure. In short, Orwell feared that what we fear will ruin us. Huxley feared that what we desire will ruin us.

This book is about the possibility that Huxley, not Orwell, was right.”

That infinite appetite for distractions, is to be our undoing.

Rights Can’t Be Taken, They Must Be Surrendered

I have long stated my belief that the only rights you can ever lose are those you willingly surrender. No government, you individual, no force or contrivance of man can ever take away your rights because those rights were endowed to you by your creator.

I began to sense faintly that secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy…censorship.

When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, “This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know,” the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives.

Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything — you can’t conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.

Lecherous Traitors, Abusive Tyrants, And Your 2nd Amendment

In the wake of the recent shooting of 9 black Americans in Charleston, SC – the United Nations has made an “Urgent Plea” for the United States to take dramatic action on gun violence. We are a signatory (John Kerry signed it in 2013) to the non-ratified Arms Trade Treaty, which provides for the forcible disarmament of “non-state actors”. Uh, yeah, that’s you and me…

This treaty, under normal circumstances, would never be accepted as law under our Constitution’s Article II, Section II which provides that the US Senate must provide “advice and consent” of all treaties. Under normal circumstances, that is awesome. Unfortunately, now we come to the bit about lecherous traitors. On Thursday, 218 members of the Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted to give the Abusive Tyrant “fast-track authority” over trade deals. What this means is that any “trade deal” in our largely interconnected world can be enacted by His Majesty with an executive order. Yes, that includes the non-ratified Arms Trade Treaty which requires the forcible disarmament of all “non-state actors”.

Our Lecherous Traitors are on the verge of giving the Abusive Tyrant absolute control over your ability to defend yourself against any of them… over your right to speak freely in any medium you choose… all of your rights. The TPP, TTIP, & TISA agreements are to remain classified for 4 & 5 years after their enactment, respectively.

If you aren’t absolutely mortified with where our country is – at this very moment – you either need to wake the hell up or by your conscious decisions, are not my countrymen.

His Majesty is about to have the power of his pen to completely rewrite the US Constitution. In September, we will see the beginnings of the Pope’s Global Super-Government via the Agenda 21 driven Sustainable Development agreement. Look in your local community at any initiatives which call themselves “sustainable communities, developments, etc”. Then take a look at the Agenda 21 website. Compare & contrast. The hippies have been implementing Agenda 21 for more than 2 decades, surreptitiously via non-government entities using local action.

Under the global sustainable development initiatives, your rights will necessarily be superseded by the needs of the collective. We are being boxed in on a global scale and no one is talking about it.

‘Urban Terrorists’ Injure & Kill 20 Black Americans

A racially motivated shooting occurred in Detroit this weekend, at an annual gathering of local black citizens. The shooter has not been identified by police, but the outrage is palpable in Detroit’s many neighborhoods. Concerned black leaders are rushing to the scene to insure that the full weight and force of the federal government is brought to bear in finding the savages who committed the heinous act which injured or killed 20 black Americans.

I made up that bit about anyone in the black community giving a shit. The shooter was black, so no one seems to care. It’s utterly heart-breaking that no one values black lives unless they are taken by white people.
