Remember Elian Gonzalez?

This happened during the Clinton Administration. So did Waco and the Branch Davidian siege where 76 people died .

Also, the attack on Randy Weaver’s home in Ruby Ridge, Northern Idaho that resulted in the killing of Weaver’s son and wife.

From Wikipedia:

González’s mother drowned in November 1999 while attempting to leave Cuba with her son and her boyfriend to get to the United States.[1][2] The U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) initially placed González with maternal relatives in Miami, who sought to keep him in the United States against his father’s demands that González be returned to Cuba. A federal district court’s ruling that only González’s father, and not his extended relatives, could petition for asylum on the boy’s behalf was upheld by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. After the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the case, federal agents seized González from his relatives and returned him to Cuba in June 2000.”

If we forget how the Clintons operated when Bill was President we will get more of the same if Hillary is elected.

Remember, Hillary Clinton lies. She lies when the lies won’t even help her. She tells lies when they can be easily refuted. In other words, she is not just a liar, she is also stupid.

This Could Have Been Written By A Revoista

This is touted as a rant and it is. It’s actually a dare and it’s aimed at the keyboard warriors on the left who want to disarm law-abiding Americans. Few things would turn law-abiding Americans into law-breaking Americans. Trying to take away our guns would, though.

As has been mentioned many times before on these pages there is a ‘Law of Unintended Consequences’. Conservatives and libertarians understand and respect that law. It’s unknown to most on the left. There is no better way for them to learn about its existence and iron truth that to try this fool’s game.

From National Review:

“An Open Rant Aimed at Those Who Would Repeal the Second Amendment”

sig sauer pistol

Talk is cheap, but persuading Americans to surrender their rights will be expensive, difficult, and time-consuming.

[…]

Seriously, try it. Start the process. Stop whining about it on Twitter, and on HBO, and at the Daily Kos. Stop playing with some Thomas Jefferson quote you found on Google. Stop jumping on the news cycle and watching the retweets and viral shares rack up. Go out there and begin the movement in earnest. Don’t fall back on excuses.”

Ouch. From Red State: “The real email question: Did Hillary Clinton sell US secrets?”

While the media is focusing your attention on the shiny object that is her email server, the real story is not being told. The circumstantial evidence indicates that Hillary Clinton, or members of her inner circle with her connivance, purloined highly classified US intelligence and either sold it, traded it, or used it for personal gain. This is not a conspiracy theory and it is not hyperbole. Stick with me for a moment.

What a story to find on a Monday morning. It’s all conjecture but the writer makes a pretty compelling case.

No one else is asking why she had so many top secret documents stored on her server.

The Washington Times reports that the crew looking over her server has found 60 classified documents – so far.

While media coverage has focused on a half-dozen of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s personal emails containing sensitive intelligence, the total number of her private emails identified by an ongoing State Department review as having contained classified data has ballooned to 60, officials told The Washington Times.”

And now they are calling for removal of her security clearance:

Democrats Are Again Trying To Disarm American Blacks

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is leading the effort. But this time the black community is resisting.

“Bloomberg: We Need to Keep Guns Away from Minorities to Keep Them Alive”

The Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE) is a group of prominent figures from the African American community against gun control legislation currently being considered on Capitol Hill.
CURE released this POWERFUL ad against the recent Democratic attacks on the Second Amendment”

Dana Loesch reports on a speech given by Bloomberg at the Aspen Institute meeting.

Bloomberg claimed that 95 percent of murders fall into a specific category: male, minority and between the ages of 15 and 25. Cities need to get guns out of this group’s hands and keep them alive, he said.”

Loesch also linked to coverage of Bloomberg’s speech in the Washington Times.

“Team Obama Goes Full Anti-Semite on Schumer”

chuck schumer jew

Obama and his faithful minions are frustrated that Senator Chuck Schumer does not like the deal John Kerry negotiated with Iran over their nuclear ambitions. They have threatened him with everything they have. The Senate Democrats have told him if he doesn’t change and support the deal they will refuse the political money they have given him in the past.

Now there is a full-court press by the left. The Daily Kos has an article titled, “Chuck Schumer: Religious Extremist and Bigot”. They say the only reason he opposes the deal is his unreasonable support for Israel. He’s Jewish, you see.

JWF has an in-depth article about the anti-Semitic attacks he is seeing.

The vile, angry left is showing their true colors in an ugly display against New York Senator Charles Schumer. This is what happens when you don’t march in lockstep.

Anti-Semitism is all over the drive to make Chuck Schumer shut up about his opposition to the Iran nuke deal.”

Do you think they will get him to change his position? I am no supporter of Senator Schumer but this is no way to run a country. It’s totalitarianism.

The Left Meets Angry ‘Black Lives Matter’ Anarchists In Seattle

Socialist Bernie Sanders was scheduled to speak to a group in Seattle. The crowd was geared up for a rousing taste of leftist ranting but he was not allowed to speak. His supporters had set it all up but it was stopped by a small group. It’s a good question whether they opposed his candidacy or if they just wanted to stop any organized event. It sounds like the latter. The MC offered them a chance to speak but they didn’t take it.

Who is behind this? Is it the Clinton campaign?

It’s really worth a watch. Sanders is completely flummoxed by the attack.

It’s Starting In Northern Idaho

“Gun-confiscation fears lead to protest in northern Idaho”

A group of residents in northern Idaho lined up outside a U.S. Navy veteran's house on Thursday to protest claims that federal officials are planning on confiscating the man's weapons.

A group of residents in northern Idaho lined up outside a U.S. Navy veteran’s house on Thursday to protest claims that federal officials are planning on confiscating the man’s weapons.

Idaho Republican state Rep. Heather Scott of Blanchard said the Veteran Affairs office has sent a letter to John Arnold of Priest River warning him that he cannot possess or purchase firearms.

The protest —spearheaded by Scott— attracted roughly 100 people. Among them were Bonner County Sheriff Daryl Wheeler, who promised to stand guard against any federal attempts to remove Arnold’s guns, and Republican Washington state Rep. Matthew Shea of Spokane Valley, who described the event as a “defiance against tyranny.”

“I took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution and uphold the laws of Idaho,” Wheeler said. “This seemed appropriate to show my support. I was going to make sure Mr. Arnold’s rights weren’t going to be breached.”

A Commie Describes How To Reach Utopia

“The way to save the planet: shrink the economy”

Any comprehensive climate change program must deal with this triple challenge:

1. to decrease economic activity to limit carbon emissions.

2. to achieve a livable standard of living for everyone by increasing wages to compensate for decreasing work hours.

3. to fairly redistribute the dwindling resources of our planet to include the third world.

This monumental challenge can only be met by global agreement to replace competition with cooperation, replace profit with sharing, and to engage in physical, social, artistic and intellectual pursuits instead of rampant consumption.”

Of course this is where it all breaks down, isn’t it? Progressives somehow think that human nature can be turned on its head and ignored, that people can be forced to not be greedy or competitive. Remember, the job to have in a leftist Utopia is to be he one who decides what is ‘Fair’.

“Obama Releases the ‘Unified Agenda’ and the Slide to Hell Begins!”

This is from Investment Watch Blog.

BO has published his “Unified Agenda” report. This is government-speak (Orwellian ‘newspeak’) for “You are f*cked”.

For government wonks–here is the direct link to the BO agenda:

http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/eAgendaMain

Below is a highlighted version of just some of the “transformation” events that we have left for the next 18 months. It is staggering. America is gone–at least most parts of America that we are familiar.

The basic parts of the constitutional protections that make us America will either be gone or compromised so severely we will not recognize it.

[…]

Due to Obama’s relaxation of border security and immigration enforcement, the nearly 12 million people who have crossed our borders without any type of visa have now been granted quasi-legal protections. Therefore, under 1140-AA08, this massive population is free to import arms and ammunition without any oversight after entering the country.

These rules are bizarre contradictions for an administration whose effort to deny Americans their birthright to bear arms has been a political hallmark. Even before Obama began fighting gun ownership from the White House, he demonstrated unwavering opposition to an Illinois bill that affirmed a person’s right to protect against home invasion using a firearm. Likewise, Eric Holder famously called for Americans to be “brainwashed” into an anti-gun mindset (see video) and led the Justice Department as it conspired to kill the Second Amendment by exploiting the inevitable fallout from Operation Fast and Furious.

While resolute in the effort to disarm Americans, the 2015 Unified Agenda is evidence that both Obama and Holder have for years been simultaneously working to grant illegal immigrants and non-citizens unprecedented access to loosely controlled firearms. To understand these otherwise inexplicable rules, they must be put in context with the policies concerning immigration and trade handed down to Obama from previous presidents.”

John Boehner Pretends He Has A Spine

Boehner says, “Hillary Clinton is lying about State Department emails”. Not a word, though, about a far more dangerous problem: Obama’s pact with Iran that allows them to develop nuclear weapons.

Obama has signed the accord. Only the Congress can reverse it. No Congressional leaders are talking about doing so.

"I am cultivating mushrooms"

“I am cultivating mushrooms”

Intelligent, grown-up people understand just how this will play out. The Mullahs in Iran want to destroy Israel and the west. They want Islamic domination of the world and they are willing to kill and destroy anything and everything to get it. They will sign agreements and violate them. They will lie in the faces of stupid people who believe anything they say.

Most Americans understand this. I think our President does as well but he’s on their side. He wants to see a global caliphate and he, and his minion, Iranian born Valerie Jarrett, are doing everything they can to help it along. They are not stupid nor naive. They are complicit.

The stupid ones are the John Boehners, the John Kerrys and those in our media who support what is happening.

Many have opined that it will take Iran ten years or so to develop a nuclear weapon. On what do they base this? No one knows how far along they are. Not long ago several in-the-know people, including Benjamin Netanyahu, have said they are no more than a year away from a bomb.

Don’t forget, either, that part of this unholy deal is that Iran will get tens of billions of dollars. Why would they not just buy some nuclear weapons?

Here is an interesting little video. It was made by a US veteran who knows a thing or two about Iran. Four actually.

You know, I know, that Iran is not trustworthy. The world is being sold down the proverbial river.

Obama’s HUD Will Fundamentally Transform Your Neighborhood

You need to know about HUD’s new ‘Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing’ rule.

hud logo

At the direction of President Obama the Department of Housing and Urban Development has decided that neighborhoods need to become more diversified. If you live in a neighborhood with a higher than normal income level they will put in some low-income housing to bring it down. If you have too many white people there more minorities will be brought in.

HUD has taken planning and zoning away from local control.

From the Human Rights Campaign blog, who are ‘Working for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equal Rights’:

The rule implements a section of the FHA, which directed jurisdictions accepting federal funds to take significant actions to promote equality and “affirmatively further fair housing”. The AFFH provisions are a critical step towards ensuring that everyone has access to homes in communities that provide opportunities and resources for themselves and their families – including those who are LGBT. The new HUD rule requires communities to conduct an “Assessment of Fair Housing” to scrutinize their current patterns of integration and segregation, evaluate areas of poverty, and identify disparities in equal access and disproportionate housing. Once that assessment is complete the community must set goals to improve their housing patterns.”

From America Thinker:

The progressive utopian assumption must be that people become smarter or richer based on where they live. Simply put, rather than respect the theory of social evolution, liberals continue to blame zip codes for the economic demise of those they imagine would otherwise be the fittest. Thus, to solve shared problems that have nothing to do with geography, the Obama transformation team is moving forward with the plan to usher low-income people into the midst of middle- and higher-income classes.”

Zero Hedge has an article on the new rule here.

Fox News has this to say:

HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan unveiled the federal rule at the NAACP convention in July.

“Unfortunately, in too many of our hardest hit communities, no matter how hard a child or her parents work, the life chances of that child, even her lifespan, is determined by the zip code she grows up in. This is simply wrong,” he said.

Data from this discrimination database would be used with zoning laws, housing finance policy, infrastructure planning and transportation to alleviate alleged discrimination and segregation.”

“Want to Know How to Stop a Centralized Bureaucracy? Math.”

Dream on.

This was posted by Jeff Carter at Points and Figures.

The only thing that will upend the carefully crafted apple cart the political bosses have set up is math. The math that Mark talks about in the Soundcloud clip I posted is rapidly becoming a reality in states like Illinois. The answer from Democratic politicians has been to look for ways to increase taxes and fees to keep the shell game going. None of them have cut the size and scope of government. None of them have deregulated anything to allow more choice and freedom for people. Interestingly, the United States federal budget allocates 62% of all spending to entitlements, and the number will rise dramatically with Obamacare. It’s totally unsustainable but the crony capitalists in Washington don’t care about it. They’ll be fine.”

Oh, now I get it. He means that the math will eventually catch up with the spenders and bring down the system. He doesn’t mean we could use a hard thing like math to prevent the collapse. At first I thought we could convince the leftists.

Nope, never.

Here is what you get when you try something as foolish as that. Gina McCarthy, head of the EPA, was testifying before the Congress.

gina-mccarthy-epa-reuters-e1387387390626

Congressman Lamar Smith wanted to know how EPA justified their expansive new regulations.

Smith reiterated that in his secret science reform act, personal information would be redacted but the underlying studies and data that are being used to justify costly regulations would be made public so that other scientists and the American people can review it. This is especially important as the EPA has a 60-day comment period after a new proposal is issued, but the science behind the new regulations is not included. Smith’s new bill would rectify that issue.

McCarthy also said she “doesn’t actually need the raw data in order to develop science. That’s not how it’s done.

I guess that explains it. In the Obama administration regulations are not based on scientific data. They are based, I guess, on political science. And Obama’s politics are to do whatever he can to further weaken and eventually destroy out country.

McCarthy understands that. Smith apparently does not.

Hillary Clinton Embraces Third Rail Of Politics – Gun Control

In this clip she says it. She also looks like crap. She looks like she’s been on a bender.

Speaking before the US Congress of Democratic Mayors:

I’m going to speak out against the uncontrollable use of guns in our country because I believe we can do better,” Clinton said Tuesday in Iowa City.

A few days earlier, she said in Hanover, N.H.: “We have to take on the gun lobby. . . . This is a controversial issue. I am well aware of that. But I think it is the height of irresponsibility not to talk about it.”

“Cliven Bundy will be held accountable, Interior secretary says”

bundycliven110414getty

Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy will be held accountable for the federal land grazing fees and penalties he owes, a top federal official said.

Bundy became a national figure in April 2014 when he and scores of supporters got into an armed standoff with federal law enforcement officers over his cattle’s years of alleged unpaid grazing on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) property.

Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, whose department includes the BLM, says Bundy will eventually have to answer for what he owes the federal government, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
“Cliven Bundy has had multiple court orders to remove his cattle from federal public lands and he has not paid his grazing fees and he has not abided by the law,” Jewell told the Review-Journal Wednesday on a visit to Incline Village, Nev., where she spoke at a Western Governors’ Association event.

“We will continue to pursue that,” she said.”

From The Hill

Whether you agree or disagree with Bundy’s stance, The Leviathan can not allow him to resist their efforts. If they do, others might follow his lead. An example must be made of him. It must be brutal and its message must be unmistakable.

To understand the kind of mindset that people who think like that possess, here is a clip that explains it. We have been warned.

A Sincere Warning To American Gun Owners From A Canadian

“Churches are the left’s next target in the gay-marriage war”

Yep.  Scary.

Yep. Scary.

Of course they are. The problem is that religion teaches people that there are rules one should live by. There is the Golden Rule, ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you’, and there are ten commandments.

Progressives can not have commonly understood rules that apply to everyone. Horrors! If that happened, the rules would apply to … Progressives, too. No, they demand that they make the rules and those rules are one thing for them and something entirely different for ‘The Enemy’. Just look at what NY Mayor DeBlasio is doing. He has decided to punish people with whom he disagrees – especially those he finds disgusting.

It’s not just DeBlasio, either. The same messages are coming from the White House. Valerie Jarrett does not do unto others as she would have them do unto her. Nope. She’s from Chicago via Iran where the rule is, “Destroy others before they destroy you”.

They say power corrupts and that is true. But some people are more corrupted by power than others. Those are the people who dreamed of becoming all-powerful so they could destroy others, either financially or physically. It has been reported that members of Bill Ayers’ Weather Underground talked about killing people by the millions.

It’s easy to see the coming clash of moralities, one enjoying official favor, the other religious sanction. What Kennedy refers to as the “dignitary wounds” of the traditional definition of marriage are also inflicted by the private institutions and people who uphold that definition.
In oral arguments, Justice Samuel Alito asked Solicitor General Donald Verrilli whether, on the model of Bob Jones University a few decades ago when it banned interracial dating and marriage, a college that opposed same-sex marriage could be denied tax-exempt status. “It’s certainly going to be an issue,” Verrilli admitted. “I don’t deny that.”

NYC Mayor DeBlasio Declares War On Donald Trump

Kaiser Wilhelm DeBlasio is ‘Disgusted, disgusted I tell you’, with Trump’s politically incorrect talk about Mexicans. So, he is going to make Trump pay by making sure he doesn’t get any money from the city.

This will be fun to watch. DeBlasio is in over his head. He is ruining his city. This war with Trump is another example of his ineptitude – or alternately – his devotion to the red flag. He has shown he is opposed to any- and every-thing that made the city great.

This will not end well for Bill DeBlasio.

It’s Interesting How Many Formerly Mainstream Groups Are Now Espousing Revolution

fight back or submit

This is from the Rutherford Institute. They describe themselves as a legal aid group:

The Rutherford Institute, a nonprofit civil liberties organization based in Charlottesville, Va., is deeply committed to protecting the constitutional freedoms of every American and the integral human rights of all people through its extensive legal and educational programs. The Institute provides its legal services at no charge to those whose constitutional and human rights have been threatened or violated.”

I do not agree with all of their principles. For instance,

Sixth, an armed revolt will not work. Although we may have returned to a 1776 situation where we need to take drastic actions to restore freedom, this is not colonial America with its muskets and people’s armies. Local police departments have enough militarized firepower to do away with even a large-scale armed revolt. Even attempting to repel a SWAT team raid on your home is futile. You’ll get blown away.”

But there are some points worth sharing.

First, we must come to grips with the reality that the present system does not foster freedom. It denies freedom and must be altered.

Second, voting is practically worthless. “In principle, it is a great privilege,” Aldous Huxley recognized. “In practice, as recent history has repeatedly shown, the right to vote, by itself, is no guarantee of liberty.”

“Slave or Rebel? Ten Principles for Escaping the Matrix and Standing Up to Tyranny”

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

It’s a shell game intended to keep us focused on and distracted by all of the politically expedient things that are being said—about militarized police, surveillance, and government corruption—while the government continues to frogmarch us down the road toward outright tyranny.”

“Hillary Clinton, Get This, Edited the Emails She Turned Over to State to Delete Embarrassing References to Oil, Terrorism”

This witch commits felonious acts, refuses to answer questions, allows people working for her to be killed, and she thinks she should be President of the United States. What gall. And the complicit media will not cover her infractions.

We will.

hillary horns

Hillary Clinton withheld Benghazi-related emails from the State Department that detailed her knowledge of the scramble for oil contracts in Libya and the shortcomings of the NATO-led military intervention for which she advocated.
Clinton removed specific portions of other emails she sent to State, suggesting the messages were screened closely enough to determine which paragraphs were unfit to be seen by the public.

For example, one email Clinton kept from the State Department indicates Libyan leaders were “well aware” of which “major oil companies and international banks” supported them during the rebellion, information they would “factor into decisions” about about who would be given access to the country’s rich oil reserves.”

“America’s only remaining choices – civil disobedience or collapse”

This was written by Lawrence Sellin, PHD and it appears in Family Security Matters.

The United States no longer has, as the Constitution designed, a government composed of executive, legislative and judicial branches, separate, but equal in power.

The federal government is now an alliance of branches, devoted to the preservation of government itself, separate, not from each other, but from the American people and dedicated to tyranny.

The policies pursued by the Obama Administration and facilitated by cowardly politicians and a compliant media are not simply the intersection of radical ideology and incompetence, but a dangerous subversive element of an anti-American and anti-Western strategy.”

20150627_ThomasJeffersonquotelawunjust

Obama’s transformation is fundamentally the degradation and humbling of a great nation he considers venal and corrupt, but is, in reality, merely a description of the content of his own character.

He and his present anointed successor and Mini Me, Hillary Clinton, are manifestations of modern-day, totalitarian Liberalism, in its insatiable thirst for power, where persuasion is replaced by coercion to implement policies that are inherently damaging to liberty and the national interest.

Unfortunately, the federal government, as an institution, has largely come to reflect those same characteristics, the tyranny that led the Founding Fathers to declare independence.

In their effort to make the central government “too big to fail,” the political-media complex has made it too corrupt to reform.

It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from its government – Thomas Paine”

Ted Cruz: “Constitutional Remedies to a Lawless Supreme Court”

His idea is to make supreme Court Justices face retention elections. The people must decide whether the individual Justices are to remain. That would remove the lifetime tenure they currently enjoy.

The time has come, therefore, to recognize that the problem lies not with the lawless rulings of individual lawless justices, but with the lawlessness of the Court itself. The decisions that have deformed our constitutional order and have debased our culture are but symptoms of the disease of liberal judicial activism that has infected our judiciary. A remedy is needed that will restore health to the sick man in our constitutional system.”

justice roberts 2

Judicial retention elections have worked in states across America; they will work for America. In order to provide the people themselves with a constitutional remedy to the problem of judicial activism and the means for throwing off judicial tyrants, I am proposing an amendment to the United States Constitution that would subject the justices of the Supreme Court to periodic judicial-retention elections. Every justice, beginning with the second national election after his or her appointment, will answer to the American people and the states in a retention election every eight years. Those justices deemed unfit for retention by both a majority of the American people as a whole and by majorities of the electorates in at least half of the 50 states will be removed from office and disqualified from future service on the Court.”

Justice Roberts Was Mistaken

justice roberts

He said this when he wrote the opinion that preserved Obamacare: “Congress passed ACA to improve insurance markets, not destroy them.” He was mistaken.

Congress did not intend to help the health insurance market. They meant to destroy it. It’s working, too.

Consider how they regulated insurance carriers. They are forced to cover existing conditions. Uninsured people are allowed to purchase insurance after they discover they have life-threatening conditions.

Insurance companies are restricted in how much they can charge as premiums.

The Obamacare website has never worked properly and is not secure. If you signed up your medical and financial information is available to bad guys.

Obamacare ‘Navigators’ are not vetted, allowing criminals to help those wanting insurance. They will have intimate access to those people’s files.

Sen. Harry Reid said, “Obamacare ‘Absolutely’ A Step Toward A Single-Payer System”. He, of all people should know what the plan was.

In the ACA there is a part that allows people having trouble getting insurance to sign up for Medicaid. That system, like Medicare, is a single-payer system.

The regulations on insurers are getting more stringent all the time. Many companies that formerly provided health insurance are opting out of Obamacare. That will continue, I believe, until there are no insurers left in the system. Then the single-payer system will be the only option offerred.
