“You ‘Must be Made’ to Obey”

obama brownshirt

You might enjoy this:

The time of which many of us have long warned is no longer on the horizon. The left’s full-on assault against freedom, most especially religious freedom, is at hand.”

While actions speak louder than words, words often predict future actions. Secular progressives’ words and actions rarely align. This is because the pseudo-utopian, wholly dystopian perch from which they view the world is so detached from reality that, from a cultural and public policy standpoint, they must disguise their intended actions in flowery and euphemistic language, or face near universal rejection.”

Quite insightful, this is from the site, Oregon Magazine. Here is a bit more:

Even so, it’s during those rare moments of candor that our cultural Marxist friends’ rhetoric actually aligns with their intended actions. In other words, every so often, and usually by accident, they tell the truth.

Take this recent declaration by President Obama at Georgetown University. He was discussing his contempt for conservative news media in general and Fox News in particular:

“[W]e’re going to have to change how our body politic thinks, which means we’re going to have to change how the media reports on these issues,” he said.

How Kim Jong-un of him. In sum: Goal 1) Control thought by, Goal 2) Controlling the media.”

Well, Since Washington Is Teaching Us That Laws No Longer Exist…

… Why do we obey them?

i-can-t-keep-calm-i-m-fed-up-257x300

How many laws are our dear leaders refusing to enforce? There are laws against illegal immigration – they are being ignored. There are laws against public officials accepting money from foreign countries. They, too, are being ignored. Jon Corzine, head of MF Global, illegally took money out of trust funds for customers and invested – and lost – it in risky European investments. Nothing has been done.

There are hundreds more stories like these. The American public is being trained that laws don’t mean anything. But, why is it that only leftist people with government connections ignoring them? Why shouldn’t all Americans also do so?

The goal seems to be anarchy. Why don’t we embrace it? We really don’t have another choice, do we?

What laws do you want to ignore?

Islamic State Wins Big In Ramadi

You and I sent some nice goodies over there to help the Iraqi’s. Now ISIS has them all.

I wouldn't mind having a few of those crates.

According to an ISIS Twitter account these items were among the spoils of war that they captured:

Spoils of #Ramadi battle
-40 Humvees
-10 Abrams tanks
-A battalion of Howitzer artillery
-Armored trucks & ammunition
#Iraq #ISIS #USA

But the Obama administration is telling us that this is only a brief setback. Either they are completely disconnected from the reality of the situation, they are intentionally lying to us in order to try to minimize criticism, or both.

My money is on both – and more.

Fox Confirms US Was Running Weapons From Benghazi To Syria

fox - weapons to syria

Hillary Clinton said she did not know about the program while testifying under oath.
Here is the transcript:

Sen. Rand Paul: My question is, is the US involved in any procuring of weapons, transfer of weapons, buying, selling anyhow transferring weapons to Turkey out of Libya?

Hillary Clinton: To Turkey? I’ll have to take that question for the record. That’s, nobody’s ever raised that with me.

Sen. Rand Paul: It’s been in news reports that ships have been leaving from Libya and that they may have weapons. And what I’d like to know is, that annex that was close by, were they involved with procuring, buying, selling, obtaining weapons and were any of these weapons being transferred to other countries? ANy countries, Turkey included?

Hillary Clinton: Well, Senator you’ll have to direct that question to the agency that ran the annex. And, I will see what information was available.

Sen. Rand Paul: You’re saying you don’t know?

Hillary Clinton: I do not know. I don’t have any information on that.”

She lied under oath. It is not the first time. She is unfit to hold any office in the country.

“Other Religions Are Not Perfect Either”

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is interviewed by Canadian broadcaster Wendy Mesley. Mesley is obviously a leftist who equates the permanent lessons of violence taught to Muslims thought the Koran to the occasional instances of violence that have been perpetrated in the past by Jews and Christians. She has no sense of proportion and doesn’t want one.

Mesley tries to steer the conversation into areas that bring her comfort but Ali is having none of it. Ali reacts with a tired patience.

The difference in the demeanor of the two women is striking. One is warning the west about coming acts of violence and the other refuses to hear the warning and considers Ali a hateful trouble maker.

This video illustrates perfectly the divide that exists between those who fear for the future of the west and those who find that warning distasteful and want to destroy both that message and the messenger.

“Yes, The Left IS that Stupid”

This article is from the Gunslinger’s Journal. The writer makes a good point – one that I agree with.

Has it occurred to the jack-rabbits who want to take down The West so they can share in the “goodies” The West has “hoarded”, that if they take down The West, there won’t BE any goodies to share?”

He’s talking about the left. They seem to think that western society is made up of greedy people who have succeeded through a combination of luck and the victimization of the rest of the people.

There is something unusual about countries like the United States. Until now its people have been free to pursue their own self interest. That resulted in successful farms, businesses, and a lot of invention. All the peole in the country have benefited from the wealth they created – both in the case of plenty of food and in the development of and distribution of labor-saving devices. Even in the poorest neighborhoods people have enough to eat and own things like TV sets, automobiles, and cell phones.

The left wants to restrict the freedom to innovate so they can redistribute the wealth to those who have less. What they don’t understand is that by destroying the wealth makers the wealth will go away. There won’t be anything to redistribute. This has happened before in other countries and the result is always the same.

Historically, the closest thing to the current spread of civilization, culture, and technology, was the Roman Empire. It was the high water mark of the ancient world. And when the Empire failed, the world plunged into the Dark Ages…from which it struggled for centuries to emerge.

When Rome fell, it’s wealth, luxury and resources were not shared by the world. They disappeared. They disappeared because it took the organization that was the Empire to produce them.”

And more recently Rhodesia was a successful country on the African continent. The successful were thrown out, the country was renamed Zimbabwe, and:

A more modern example of this is the death of Rhodesia. It was a rich, prosperous, well-fed, functional and successful country. But the idea grew that the white elite, whose farmlands were the backbone of Rhodesian wealth, had “stolen” them from “the People”, and that they should be “liberated” from these oppressors, and returned to the people so they could share in the wealth they produced.

But, when the lands were “liberated” and given to “the people”, they ceased to be successful, profitable or productive farms. What the ignorant “liberators” failed to understand is that there was no inherent wealth in the farmland—nor a mine or well. It requires people with the knowledge, skill, the ambition and motivation, the technology and the culture to exploit its potential.”

Not mentioned but equally a problem for Zimbabwe was the devaluation of their money:

zimbabwe money01

zimbabwe money02

There are many Americans who understand the problem. You can not destroy a society that is working, creating better lives for its citizens without also destroying the advantages those people enjoy.

This is a basic fact of life but the left isn’t interested in the nation’s people prospering. They are only interested in controlling every aspect of their lives. They really are that stupid.

Should The West fail, the world will not suddenly share in its supposedly hoarded wealth. The wealth will fail insofar as The West does. And nothing will be left for anyone but the wisp of smoke and memory.

And a New Dark Age.”

“New Jersey Interrogates Homeschoolers, Lawsuit Follows”

I began hearing about this interference recently. The state of Washington is starting with child care companies, forcing them to follow strict regulations written by state bureaucrats. The children must receive the proper indoctrination, you see. Later they will deal with schools, and especially home-schoolers.

They do want to know if you have guns in the home.

A $60 Million lawsuit is a nice response.

obama brownshirt

A New Jersey family is suing the state child-protection agency after it allegedly sent a caseworker to their home to interrogate them on everything from their son’s homeschool education to questions about vaccines and guns in the house.

Christopher Zimmer and his wife Nicole of Belvidere filed a civil rights complaint in April in U.S. District Court in Trenton alleging “unlawful and unconstitutional home intrusion.”

He said Michelle Marchese, a caseworker for the state Division of Child Protection and Permanency, demanded she be let inside the house, “Now!” according to court documents. Startled by the aggressive confrontation, Christopher Zimmer asked the purpose of her visit.

Marchese refused to answer the question, saying only that 15-year-old Christopher Zimmer Jr. was not getting a “proper education” and she was at the Zimmer home under the authority of DCP&P to make sure they were homeschooling their son “correctly,” the suit states.

Not knowing the extent of his rights, Christopher Zimmer phoned local police. The police arrived on the scene but allowed Marchese to enter the home and continue to issue threats to the family and inspect the house, all without a warrant, the lawsuit states.”

Hillary: The New York Times Is Part Of The ‘Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy’

Hillary Rodham Clinton has sent her pit bulls out to bear false witness. Scandal after scandal have shown up and the only thing they can do is say things like, “There is no proof”, because she deleted it all.

But she didn’t delete the physical evidence – like the contracts to give Russia control of America’s uranium supply or the fact that her brother’s company got control of the gold mines of Haiti.

fix-is-in

The Clinton Foundation fraudulently filed form 990s to the IRS for several years. And they didn’t just miss a dollar here and there, but failed to report tens of millions:

Hillary Clinton’s family’s charities are refiling at least five annual tax returns after a Reuters review found errors in how they reported donations from governments, and said they may audit other Clinton Foundation returns in case of other errors…

For three years in a row beginning in 2010, the Clinton Foundation reported to the IRS that it received zero in funds from foreign and U.S. governments, a dramatic fall-off from the tens of millions of dollars in foreign government contributions reported in preceding years.

Those entries were errors, according to the foundation: several foreign governments continued to give tens of millions of dollars toward the foundation’s work on climate change and economic development through this three-year period. Those governments were identified on the foundation’s annually updated donor list, along with broad indications of how much each had cumulatively given since they began donating.”

Compared with these the Whitewater scam was peanuts. The Earl of Taint, where I got the image above, observes about these scandals, ‘It Ain’t Peanuts’.

This past weekend Fox News ran a nine-minute expose’ on the Clinton’s misuse of her position as Secretary of State and the New York Times published a 4,500 word article that does the same thing. As a result Hillary’s apologists, people like Howard Dean and James Carville make excuses and try to deflect public interest away from her treason.

That’s what it is, too. Both she and Bill should be arrested and tried for treason.

Looks Like The Violence Is Starting In Berkeley

Protesters have formed ‘Blockades’ to prevent students from going to class or anything else.

A group of about 50 students and some community members gathered at Sather Gate on Tuesday, (April 14th,) protesting police brutality and what they called a hostile campus atmosphere for the underrepresented minority population.

Initially led by the Stop Mass Incarceration Network, the protest was organized as part of a series of coordinated responses nationwide to police brutality.

More than 50 individuals blocked pedestrian traffic through the passageway under Sather Gate.

On a few occasions, passers-by’s attempts to break through the blockade were met with violent responses. UCPD spokesperson Lt. Marc DeCoulode said there were three reports of assault during the protest, while no arrests were made.”

Hillaryous: She Has Begun The Communist Sloganeering

National Review is quoting this from the New York Times.

“Hillary: We Must Topple the 1 Percent.”

hillary toasting

In a meeting with economists this year, Mrs. Clinton intensely studied a chart that showed income inequality in the United States. The graph charted how real wages, adjusted for inflation, had increased exponentially for the wealthiest Americans, making the bar so steep it hardly fit on the chart.

Mrs. Clinton pointed at the top category and said the economy required a “toppling” of the wealthiest 1 percent, according to several people who were briefed on Mrs. Clinton’s policy discussions but could not discuss private conversations for attribution.”

Another Brilliant Argument From A Far-Left Progressive

Wish I could think fast on my feet the way O’Malley does. He is so clever. But, like Hillary, he doesn’t have a solution. Just curse words.

“O’Malley: GOP’s take on the economy is ‘bulls—‘”

omalleymartin_012914getty_0_0

Possible presidential contender Martin O’Malley (D) on Monday mocked Republican arguments that federal regulations keep poor and middle-class people from moving up the economic ladder.

“It is not true that regulation holds poor people down, or regulation keeps middle class from advancing,” O’Malley, the former governor of Maryland, said Monday in an interview with NPR’s Steve Inskeep. “That’s kind of patently bulls—.”

“That’s quite a last word, by the way, on that subject. … I’m just going to leave it right there,” Inskeep responded.”

Bone Stupid

Somehow the out of touch Hillary Clinton has become aware of the trouble small businesses are having in the United States. She says she was ‘Surprised’.

Interestingly enough she does not have a proposal to turn this slide around. But she is a far-left Progressive. You can be assured that whatever she comes up with will make things worse. It is because of the policies of far-left Progressives that this problem exists.

In case anyone is interested, those policies include taxation, regulation of business practices and employees, and micro-management of the businesses from the state and national capitols.

In a statement, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus mocked Clinton for expressing such surprise, pointing to reports of the cost increases Obamacare has imposed on small businesses.

”At every turn, Hillary Clinton has supported top-down Washington-driven policies that have stacked the deck against small businesses,” Priebus said. “Hillary Clinton can’t possibly be a champion for everyday Americans when she doesn’t understand their most basic economic concerns and was ‘surprised’ to learn that small businesses are struggling.”

CNN Opposes Capitalists

cnn cuba

This tweet is actually an ad for an article at CNN.com titled, “Why you should travel to Cuba before it looks like everywhere else”.

Cuba is not like other places, or rather, not like anywhere that exists today.

To some outsiders, it looks firmly stuck in the 1950s. Vintage cars roam the streets, the landscape is absent of strip malls and global chains, and the buildings — though crumbling — hark back to a grander time.

It is these throwbacks that lend Havana, the country’s capital, an undeniable charm. A charm that, some worry, is in peril once the U.S. embargo lifts.

“We’re still in 1959, that’s the beauty of the city, and eventually all of this is going to change,” says Hugo Cancio, a Cuban-American entrepreneur and president of Fuego Media Group.

“Real estate developers from the U.S. have been flying to Cuba very quietly, taking notes, taking photos and putting together their Cuba investment plans. I don’t blame them. There are a lot of opportunities here,” he says.”

Somehow CNN believes that is a bad thing.

Comparing The USA Of Today With The Balkans

Kurt Schlichter has written a piece for Townhall.com titled ‘Liberals May Regret Their New Rules’ in which he compares the way the United States under the left has been ignoring the rule of law and more and more accepting lies and liars. He correctly notes that, like the Balkans, when the law is ignored, violent force becomes the only result. He mistakenly refers to leftists as ‘Liberals’ but that is quite common.

And he warns those on the left that they are in the minority and they have no experience with violence.

The writer, Kurt Schlichter, in Kosovo

The writer, Kurt Schlichter, in Kosovo

Today in America, a despised minority that is really no minority is the target of an establishment that considers this minority unworthy of respect, unworthy of rights, and unworthy of having a say in the direction of this country. It’s an establishment that has one law for itself, and another for its enemies. It’s an establishment that inflicts an ever-increasing series of petty humiliations on its opponents and considers this all hilarious.

That’s a recipe for disaster. You cannot expect to change the status quo for yourself and then expect those you victimize not to play by the new rules you have created. You cannot expect to be able to discard the rule of law in favor of the rule of force and have those you target not respond in kind.”

Yes, of course, when you make new rules for yourself they remain in effect when your opponents take control… and that has happened. Then there is a dire warning that Progressives should heed:

In contrast, there are an awful lot of people willing to fight and die for their religion and our Constitution.

And let’s be blunt – these are the people with most of the guns and the training to use them. That’s the reality of the rule of force. I’ve seen it – it’s there behind me in that photo.

Now, this will no doubt draw the lie that I am somehow advocating violence. The current liberal habit of shamelessly lying about their opponents makes civil debate impossible. Similarly, the mockery of non-liberals before stacked audiences of trained seals a la Jon Stewart is part and parcel of the same strategy of delegitimizing any opposition. Closing down the option of discussion leaves their opponents with only the option of action. So far, the action has only been in funding campaigns for oppressed pizzerias and in the voting booth – though they’ve trying to nullify that too.

I’m not advocating violence – I am warning liberals that they are setting the conditions for violence.

And that better worry them, for the coastal elites are uniquely unsuited to a world where force rules instead of law. The Serbs were, at least, a warrior people. The soft boys and girls who brought us helicopter parenting, “trigger warnings” and coffee cups with diversity slogans are not.”

Schlichter’s warnings are real.

“United Nations Climate Commissar: “We Should Do Everything Possible” to Reduce Human Population”

We have met Christina Figueres here before. In that post we noted that Figueres admitted that she and others in the United Nations are intentionally transforming the world economy. Now, like so many other far-left planners she is calling for a reduction in human population.

Christina Figueres

Christina Figueres

If you watch the five-minute video below you will hear her say so. In it she also says it can be up to the women of the world – especially those in ‘Developing Countries’. She proposes several pie-in-the-sky ideas like somehow giving those women energy efficient stoves to cook on instead of wood fires. It really is an insight into the leftist mind and the ways in which they want to control people’s lives and do so with your money.

United Nations climate chief Christiana Figueres said humanity “really should make every effort” to reduce global population trends to protect the environment and fight global warming in an interview with Climate One. …

“We can definitely change [population] numbers and really should make every effort to change those numbers because we are already, today, already exceeding the planet’s planetary carrying capacity, today,” Figueres [barked]. “To say nothing of adding more population that is really going to overextend our capacity. So yes we should do everything possible.”

WaPo: “Bernie Sanders, weighing presidential run, calls for ‘political revolution’”

Sanders, the Socialist Senator from Vermont, is calling for revolution. Is that the only word Socialists know? In the last hundred years leftist revolutions have killed more than a hundred million people. A few of them were political people but the vast majority were regular non-political citizens. Some were shot, some were gassed, and many were simply starved to death.

holdomor dead

The writer in this Washington Post story sounds sympathetic to Sanders’ insanity. Many on the left are – and will be – right up to the time when they are put against the wall.

When these revolutions happen it is an evil thing. Those in power fear everyone who is not in power. Their solution is always the same. They eliminate everyone who they suspect – of anything.

But the real, sad, victims are the ones who are considered ‘Expendable’. They mean nothing to the new leaders and are just inconvenient.

This is what people like Bernie Sanders want.

Fun camps. That’s just what the government needs to do; build camps for old people. That’ll work fine.

So Clinton hands over to us all to consider the idea of a progressive sending adults to camps, and the idea of a politician infamous for being humorless and suspicious being an arbiter of “fun,” wrapped in a great big bow.”

Obama Administration Says They Are Immune From FOIA Law

FOIA, the Freedom of Information Act, was put in place to ensure that the American people can know what their government is doing. From the linked website:

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a law that gives you the right to access information from the federal government. It is often described as the law that keeps citizens in the know about their government.”

According to Wikipedia, the law has been amended before by Executive order. Once in 1982, once on 2001, and once in 2009. Those changes were to protect certain documents from being released. This, however, is something else. It says that the Administration is not subject to FOIA at any level.

This is from the White House that claims, falsely, they are the most transparent in history.

What are they hiding?

White House office to delete its FOIA regulations

WASHINGTON — The White House is removing a federal regulation that subjects its Office of Administration to the Freedom of Information Act, making official a policy under Presidents Bush and Obama to reject requests for records to that office.

The White House said the cleanup of FOIA regulations is consistent with court rulings that hold that the office is not subject to the transparency law. The office handles, among other things, White House record-keeping duties like the archiving of e-mails.”

Jen Psaki: “I Can’t Spin This One”

This is not just about Hillary Clinton destroying her records. It’s the entire Obama administration. We know it’s common in the State Department. It’s not clear yet if Clinton started the file destruction but we know she did it.

She is unfit to be President.

US-POLITICS-PSAKI

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said it would be incorrect to call the emails destroyed since some might be retrievable through technology. But she acknowledged that regular archiving of the work email in-boxes of senior officials besides the secretary did not begin until “February of this year.”

“I wouldn’t state it’s ‘lost to history’ because there are technical means of gaining access to past information,” Psaki said.”

It looks as though her problem of not keeping records of emails – or of deleting the ones that look bad – has been rampant throughout the Department of State.

Later in the briefing, however, Psaki suggested that there was confusion among some State Department employees about what was and was not being automatically saved.

“I assume some assumed that was happening at the time as well,” Psaki said. “We’re updating it because it’s an imperfect system.”

Speaking without reference to Clinton, Psaki said the duty was on individual employees to save records that met standards for permanent archiving. “Clearly, individuals — any top officials — would also be expected to preserve their documents,” she said.”
