Fred On Racism: “So What?”

Fred Reed has devised an effective method of dealing with the never-ending false cries of ‘Racism’. I think we should adopt it.


I am puzzled as to why racism is thought to be a terrible thing, rather than entirely natural and often reasonable, and why people allow themselves to be brow-beaten about it. Maybe we should stop. Domestic tranquility would follow in torrents.

As nearly as I can tell, a racist is one who approves of rigorous education, good English, civilized manners, minimal criminality, and responsible parenthood, among other things. I am, then, a racist. I see no reason to grovel about it.

I decided long ago that if, while I was doing a radio interview, a caller-in told me, “You a racist!” I would hesitate as if puzzled, and say “…So what?” This would add immeasurably to the planetary supply of stunned silence. The expectation is that anyone so charged will fall on his knees and beg for mercy. It would be a lesser offense to be caught sexually molesting autistic three-year-old girls while attending a Nazi torch-rally.

Herewith another and yet worse confession:: I do not see, or care, why it is thought my duty to like, or dislike, groups because of their race, creed, color, sex, sexual aberration, or national origin. Nor do I think it their duty to like me. I especially do not understand why the federal government should decide with whom I ought to associate.”

NSFW: The End Is Near

In centuries past God destroyed civilizations, and even the world, when it got to this stage.

This woman creates ‘Art’by laying paint-filled eggs from her vagina. She doers it in public, totally naked, and she calls it art.

An upright standing nude on a loft… One with ink and acrylic fueled egg… A preserved canvas…

What the spectators are about to expect, is the compressed birth of a piece of art.
Slowly the egg leaves the natal canal of the artist and smashes on the canvas, red colour flows out. The next egg contains another colour and so bit by bit, accompanied only by loud “Plops”, an abstract art work originates — archaically, uncontrollably and intuitively. At the end of this almost meditative art birth performance the stained canvas is folded up, smoothed and unfolded to a symmetrically reflected picture, astonishingly coloured and full of strong because universal symbolism.”

You’d Think They’d Learn…

… But reality and facts never enter into the discussion with them.

The other day we saw this image from Bloomberg’s anti-gun group. It shows a gun muzzle emitting an entire cartridge – case, primer, and all.


Now we see that the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has done the same idiotic thing. This time they used a large-frame revolver. Anyone who knows guns understands that they don’t discharge the entire cartridge. We also know that they don’t fire unless the trigger is pulled. Here ya go:

unfired gun firing

I suspect that both organizations used the very same ad agency.

“BLM Eyes 90,000 Acres Of Texas Land”

They want to take the land away from ranchers along the Texas/ Oklahoma state line where the boundary is the Red River. As the river meanders they say the boundary changes. The BLM wants to define that change to the detriment of the ranchers. They have done it before without paying the ranchers for the land. Now they want to do it again.

From Breitbart:

In Texas,” Miller says, “the BLM is attempting a repeat of an action taken over 30 years ago along the Red River when Tommy Henderson lost a federal lawsuit. The Bureau of Land Management took 140 acres of his property and didn’t pay him one cent.”
Miller referred to a 1986 case where the BLM attempted to seize some of Henderson’s land. Henderson sued the BLM and lost 140 acres that had been in his family for generations. Now the BLM is looking at using the prior case as a precedent to claim an additional 90,000 acres.”


“Seventy-two killed resisting gun confiscation in Boston”

Boston – National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed on April 19 by elements of a para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.

Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement.

Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order.

The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons. Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting in early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms.

One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that “none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily.”

Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily-armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans.

During a tense standoff in the Lexington town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists.

Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.

Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat.

And this, fellow Americans, is how the American Revolution began, in April, 1775.”

Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy Got His Wish

According to Second City Cop, “At least McCarthy’s wish last week that “no one will rest until everyone in Chicago enjoys the same sense of safety” is coming true – every neighborhood is slowly become equally miserable.”. They give a link to the Chicago Sun Times where there is a map of the violence that took place over the weekend. Indeed. The map below shows that everyone in Chicago is experiencing the same level of safety – none.

chicago shootings 4-21-14

On a related note, Chicago Magazine has done a year of investigation and come to the conclusion that someone in the Emanuel administration is cooking the homicide numbers to make Chicago look safer.

Chicago conducted a 12-month examination of the Chicago Police Department’s crime statistics going back several years, poring through public and internal police records and interviewing crime victims, criminologists, and police sources of various ranks. We identified 10 people, including Groves, who were beaten, burned, suffocated, or shot to death in 2013 and whose cases were reclassified as death investigations, downgraded to more minor crimes, or even closed as noncriminal incidents—all for illogical or, at best, unclear reasons.

This troubling practice goes far beyond murders, documents and interviews reveal. Chicago found dozens of other crimes, including serious felonies such as robberies, burglaries, and assaults, that were misclassified, downgraded to wrist-slap offenses, or made to vanish altogether. (We’ll examine those next month in part 2 of this special report.)

Many officers of different ranks and from different parts of the city recounted instances in which they were asked or pressured by their superiors to reclassify their incident reports or in which their reports were changed by some invisible hand. One detective refers to the “magic ink”: the power to make a case disappear. Says another: “The rank and file don’t agree with what’s going on. The powers that be are making the changes.”

This is fraud. It makes the citizens feel safer than they should and it allows the city’s leaders to lie about their accomplishments. Nothing new for Chicago.

Hank Aaron Tries To Qualify “KKK” Comment, Digs Himself Deeper

hank aaron

Hank Aaron was a great hitter. When I was young I didn’t get to many baseball games but I remember one in St. Louis. I was sitting in the bleachers in left field. Behind us was the scoreboard. It stuck up about a hundred feet above the field. Aaron hit a ball over the top of it. I was, and still am, impressed.

But Aaron has decided that he should comment on politics. Last week he said this:

Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated.
“We have moved in the right direction, and there have been improvements, but we still have a long ways to go in the country.
“The bigger difference is that back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.”

His comments have caused no end of comment so he has found it necessary to clarify what he meant. The reporter who first exposed Aaron’s comments defends him:

I talked to Hank earlier today and Hank is very upset with this entire situation,” Moore said on ESPN’s Outside the Lines. Moore said that “Hank feels he has been taken totally out of context here,” and there is the “big focus is on that statement he didn’t make that the Republican party is analogous to the Ku Klux Klan, which he never said.”
“He is very bitter about this situation,” Moore said. “This just opens up old wounds that he would rather not deal with.”

Poor baby plays the victim card and the race card and then tries to walk it back. He singled out the Republican party and later tries to say he didn’t. He lies just like President Obama.

The article in Breitbart also says,

Nightengale also said that Aaron had just broken his hip and gotten the Congressional Medal of Honor and was “very close to President Barack Obama and this stuff is just close to his heart.”

My guess is Aaron’s support of Obama has to do with skin color alone. His opposition to the GOP is based on their opposition to his ‘Man’.

Nightengale apparently meant the ‘Congressional Medal of Freedom’. The Medal of Honor is reserved for warriors.


Bizzarro Reid

Harry Reid is captured perfectly in this cartoon. He has made some completely nonsensical statements. He is intentionally vilifying ordinary Americans who are exercising their rights. He call us ‘Terrorists’. He sides with real terrorists and calls them ‘Freedom Fighters’.

Harry Reid is a sick man and he is playing a sick and evil game. He needs to be recalled.

“Are You Really Going To Shoot These People?”

It is fascinating. people from all over the country and from all walks of life have witnessed the over reacting BLM near the Bundy ranch. Not many actually were there and reported back. Those who did have nearly all come to support what Cliven Bundy is doing.

Harry Reid is calling the Bundy supporters domestic terrorists. That kind of rhetoric is designed to inflame rather than solve the problem. Reid is an evil man.

This is a film maker from New York. He visited the Bundy’s during their confrontation with the BLM. He understands that the conflict is not about a tortoise or grazing fees. It’s about federal overreach. The law is wrong and needs to be changed. The Bundy’s and their supporters were truly prepared to die to see it changed. So, apparently, was the film maker.

Dinesh D’Souza was there as well. He also supports the efforts of the Bundy supporters. He says they were facing ‘Domestic terror from their own government’.

Finally, here is video of a neighbor of the Bundy’s, a farmer, who also understands what is at stake. She also supports their efforts. This video was shot at a town hall meeting.


WSJ: “With Palm-Readers, There’s Mobile Payments in Your Future”

Creepy. Not content with credit cards for payment, now there is a way to scan and record your palm print. The plan is to introduce it as a way to pay for your latte if you left your card in your other jeans.

There’s no way this technology could be used for other, more sinister, purposes.


palm scanner

Just as consumer electronic giants like Samsung Electronics Co.005930.SE +0.58% Ltd. and Apple Inc. make fingerprint scanning the norm for mobile identification and payments; enter palm scanning.

Unlike fingerprints, which can be stolen from your coffee mug, elevator buttons or wherever you place your fingers, a scan of the vein structure in your hand is equally unique, but harder to steal. At least, that’s what a group of dorm-room entrepreneurs at Lund University in southern Sweden think.

Quixter, a small company founded by Fredrik Leifland, an engineering student in Lund, has built a reader that analyses the structure of the blood veins inside the palm, and has linked it to a payments system. Like many biometric sensors, it emits infrared light, which is absorbed by the veins in the palm. The vein pattern is subsequently analyzed by the terminal to establish the user’s identity, and process a payment.”

Chicago Leaders Seek More Tourists…

… So they came up with an idea to spend even more money that they don’t have. They propose a multi-million dollar deal to hire some French puppeteers – they have 50 foot high puppets.

If this happened anywhere but Chicago that place would be a laughingstock. But in the windy city it’s business as usual.


From the Chicago Tribune:

Chicago has come up with a really big idea to boost tourism: giant puppets roaming the city’s streets for days in an elaborate theatrical presentation.

A multimillion-dollar deal is in the works to make Chicago the stage for Royal de Luxe, a French street theater company featuring marionettes as tall as 50 feet, during the summer of 2016, according to sources.

Chicago would be the first foray into the U.S. for Royal de Luxe, and officials confirmed Friday that talks are underway to bring the giant puppets to town.

“The Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events talks to artists and organizations from around the globe on a daily basis about bringing performances to Chicago,” said Jamey Lundblad, a spokesman for the city. “We’ve spoken with Royal de Luxe and believe their unique street theater productions have a positive social and economic impact on their host cities.”


Understanding Newspeak

For those who may not know, Newspeak is the official language the government imposes on the people in George Orwell’s book 1984. Wikipedia says this about Newspeak:

Newspeak is the fictional language in the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, written by George Orwell. It is a controlled language created by the totalitarian state as a tool to limit freedom of thought, and concepts that pose a threat to the regime such as freedom, self-expression, individuality, peace, etc. Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct is classified as “thoughtcrime.”

Those of us who read the book never expected anything like Newspeak to actually become mandatory – but it has. Here are a few examples:

USA Today: “No militia means more intrusive law enforcement”

Yes this appeared in USA Today. No it wasn’t written by one of their staff writers. It was written by Professor Glenn Harlan Reynolds, Law Professor at the university of Tennessee.

Professor Reynolds

Professor Reynolds

Our Framers didn’t envision a free state with the current level of government control.

But although the militia survives in vestigial form in the statute books, as a functional institution, it no longer exists. For law enforcement, the militia has been replaced by professional police, with SWAT teams, armored vehicles and Nomex coveralls; for military purposes, the militia has been replaced by the National Guard, which despite a thin patina of state control is fundamentally a federal military force.

This makes life easier for the federal government. In 1912, when the federal government tried to send militia units into Mexico, the militias balked, noting that the Constitution allowed them to be called out only to repel invasion, suppress insurrection, or enforce the law — not to invade other countries. Surprisingly, perhaps, Attorney General George Wickersham agreed, leading to a change in the law that produced the modern-day National Guard, a force that is not so limited. Since then, America has been far more active abroad.

But this departure from the system the Framers set up has encouraged more intrusive law enforcement at home, and more military action abroad. So I’ll ask you: If a well-regulated militia is necessary to the security of a free state, then are we insecure? Or unfree? Or both?”

Moonbat Heaven: ‘Fartpacks’ For Cattle

At first I thought they included a hose to the animal’s anus, but no, they poke a hole in the cow’s side to tap the gas directly from its stomach. There is video, in Spanish, at the link. The contraption was developed in Argentina.

The United States will undoubtedly fund this.

Trapped wind? Flatulent cows have come under renewed scrutiny by scientists who are hoping to reduce soaring levels of greenhouse gas pollution. Scientists in Argentina believe they have come up with a solution – cow backpacks that can be used to trap the animal’s natural gas

On Friday, the Obama administration stated that it would make a multi-pronged attack on cow flatulence, in an attempt to cut methane emissions.
As a result, windy cows have come under renewed scrutiny by scientists, who plan to capture their harmful emissions and convert them into ‘green’ energy.
But scientists in Argentina believe they have come up with a solution – cow backpacks that can be used to trap the animal’s natural gas.

The ‘fartpacks’ extract 300 litres of methane a day from a tube inserted into the cow’s digestive tract and convert it into enough energy to run a car for 24 hours.

“Harry Reid to be awarded 2014 Incitement to Civil War Trophy by citizen journalist Mike Vanderboegh”

Heh. “Incitement to Civil War Trophy” sounds just about right. Harry Reid has done more to inflame the freedom-loving Americans than anyone else so far this year.

reid finger 2

Senator Harry Reid, Democrat of Nevada, will be awarded the 2014 “Incitement to Civil War” Trophy by Alabama citizen journalist and Second Amendment activist Mike Vanderboegh at a ceremony at the Cliven Bundy Ranch on Saturday, April 19, 2014. Vanderboegh, who with fellow writer David Codrea first broke the Fast and Furious scandal story in a series on the Internet in December 2010 and January 2011, is in Nevada to show support for the Bundy family and their struggle with the federal government.
Said Vanderboegh, “When Dirty Harry Reid tells us that ‘This isn’t over’ and calls the Bundys and their supporters “‘domestic terrorists’ he is using — literally — the ‘bully pulpit’ to solicit the next American civil war. Reid is a corrupt bully and he understands that this struggle is not about tortoises or cows or even the vast spaces of the American west claimed by the federal government, it is about power, federal power to use naked state-sponsored terrorism to compel the American people to do what the perfumed princes of Harry Reid’s Mandarin class insist is for their own good, even if it kills them.”
“It was the misbehavior and jack-booted thuggery of the Bureau of Land Management run by Reid’s toady that motivated people to come to the Bundys’ defense. This is about two fundamentally different answers to this question: ‘Does the government serve the people as the Founders intended, or will the people be servants of the government?’ Harry Reid believes that the people should serve the government — or else. For inciting the federal government into planning for another Waco, Reid more than deserves this award.”

Deseret: “Lawmakers, Utah sheriffs want to rein in renegade BLM, Forest Service officers”

We seem to be seeing more of this. I wonder if it will ever come to anything.

From the Deseret News:

Rep. Mike Noel R-Kanab

Rep. Mike Noel R-Kanab

SALT LAKE CITY — Multiple rural county sheriffs from Utah testified Thursday about the abusive use of police power by Bureau of Land Management rangers or forest protection officers with the U.S. Forest Service.

They are asserting it is time to rein in the authority the agencies should have never been allowed to exercise.

Sheriffs from San Juan, Kane and Garfield counties spoke in favor of HB155, sponsored by Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab, which proposes to limit BLM rangers and forest protection officers from exercising police power over state and local laws unless someone’s safety is at risk or federal contracts are in place with local police agencies.

“You cannot use our (laws) to arrest our people and issue citations,” Noel said. “We don’t believe they ever had that authority. Our chief law enforcement officer is the locally elected sheriff who is accountable to the people every four years.”


Bob Owens Hits Another One Outta The Park

It’s his post at Bearing Arms. He calls it, “The Cancer, The Militia, And Cliven Bundy“. Owens agrees that Bundy broke the law but he says that that doesn’t make him wrong. Why? As with so many laws in the past it’s the law that is wrong this time.

After listening to many opinions and perspectives I’m coming closer to drawing some conclusions. For starters, as a legal matter, Cliven Bundy doesn’t have a legal legal to stand on.

That doesn’t remotely mean that he’s wrong.

From the moment the ink was dry on the parchment creating it, the federal government has used, abused, and expanded its power into a grotesque mockery of what the Founders envisioned. The federal government was never supposed to occupy more land than it absolutely needed to function, much less control huge swathes of entire states. They have made their tyranny “legal” by passing laws and writing regulations, but legality is merely a concept… it doesn’t mean that laws stripping power from the citizenry are moral, or constitutional, or that we should blindly obey them.

The subjugation of women was legal. Slavery was legal. Most importantly, the democides of more than 262 million souls by their own governments in the 20th century alone after first disarming them were legal.

In far too many instances, and especially in regards to corrupted governments, “legal” merely means that a self-serving government has given itself carte blanche to pillage the citizenry—and kill them, if needed—in the name of itself.

You can ask President Obama what he thinks of “mere legality” and the importance of following laws as they are written.

It has become painfully obvious that the most apt metaphor describing our bloated and out-of-control government is that of an aggressive cancer. It started out small, but it inevitably, irresistibly began corrupting the body that created and sustains it. It is arguably in an end phase, a final burst of destructive energy, where it threatens to destroy the host entirely and itself in the process.”


Senate Majority Leader and Nevada Senator Harry Reid warns us that the battle over the ranch is far from over, and that the citizenry cannot be allowed to win:

Reid tells News4′s Samantha Boatman his take on the so-called cattle battle in southern Las Vegas. “Well, it’s not over. We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over,” Reid said.

In Reid’s diseased mind, the government must win, because the government must always win. The cancer must be fed.

It’s worth noting that the actions of the BLM and federal authorities in this case have been stated to be their method of “resolving” the case. I think Stefan Molyneux of Freedom Radio put it succinctly when he said that their method of resolution boils down to:

Give us all your cattle to pay the fines we imposed on you to save a tortoise we are currently euthanizing… Or we will shoot your family.”

The situation at the Bundy Ranch is not over. There exists the very real possibility of the federal government advancing yet again with heavily armed agents against the ranch and those who refuse to concede to the federal government’s “legal” tyranny.

If they commit such a crime—and a clear moral crime it will be, regardless of the so-called legality of it—the federal government could very well find itself under attack across the nation from citizens who have simply had enough of the cancer that is a corrupt and tyrannical government that has shown a willingness to throw constitutionality and legality to the wind in order to advance its own agenda of consolidating power and stripping the Republic of even the illusion of liberty.

Never has the need for a well-armed citizenry been more apparent.”


NRO: “Bundy vs. BLM: A Visceral Reaction”

I think this National Review writer gets it. He has put into words what many of us couldn’t. Throughout the Bundy stand-off the question we had wasn’t. “Did Bundy break the law”. He admits that he did.

The concern instead has been about the fierceness and violent way the feds reacted.

Bundy’s cattle should have been prevented from grazing on public lands if the fees had not been paid. Instead the BLM destroyed his property, killed two prize bulls, threw a woman to the ground, and tasered at least one of the Bundy’s.

dead bull

Now they are talking about an attack on the Bundy ranch. For what?

To intimidate them and others; to display a level of force that discourages others from resisting. Simple as that.

One can be a supporter of the rule of law and still recoil in anger and disgust from the militarized display of force by the federal government toward Clive Bundy.

The disproportionate nature of the government’s reaction to Bundy suggests this has less to do with delinquent grazing fees than it does with the selective assertion of raw governmental power — sending a message not just to Bundy or a disfavored group, but to America as a whole. The same federal government that deploys Bureau of Land Management shooters tricked out like SEAL Team 6 directs Border Patrol agents to flee from aggressive illegal immigrants. The same federal government that would fire and prosecute federal agents who physically restrain border-crossers sends agents to tase and sic German shepherds on ordinary Americans exercising First Amendment rights.

One can acknowledge that the government has the right — in fact, the responsibility — to enforce the law, yet object that this administration habitually enforces the law in a capricious, arbitrary, and discriminatory manner. They imperiously go after a Bundy while excusing scores of miscreants whose get-out-of-jail-free card is membership in a politically-correct class. They regularly waive legal requirements out of sheer political expediency. They fail to defend duly enacted statutes with which they, the enlightened, disagree.”
