Confronting the Latin Americanization of Our Urban Communities

White Mountains Lecture #10: Community engagement not democracy to uplift the new working class

latino neighborhoodIf you are a great student and a talented individual and learn from working in political systems that are generally failing, you won’t have much to add to the work of others and that’s fine if your organization or community is moving up, but it’s a problem if you are stuck in mediocrity or in decline. You may end up to be an impressive figure and you can achieve high-status positions, but you will not bring necessary change unless some disaster compels everyone to change. Inertia plays a great role in every arena of politics, thus Chinese leaders have an easier job than ours since they are riding a high of economic development based on the high-performance power of a disciplined culture with strong in tact families and low-wage, high-quality labor.

Alred: Why Hispanic Immigration Matters

alredThree years ago, I invested several weeks writing a series of essays about the underlying cultural reasons Mexican and Central American students fail massively in our public schools. Soon after I circulated the document locally I was arrested as the result an underhanded conspiracy designed to undermine my reputation. I am usually an honorable person and had no idea they would go so far as to intervene in my private life.

My approach was to examine the foundation, the floor, the habits and rituals and daily practices which ensure Hispanic underachievement. My argument, which contrasted with the theories of ethnic studies and college of education professors, was Hispanics generally wasted the opportunity of a free public education because they would have had to make changes in their traditional attitudes and lifestyles. They would also have had to adopt brighter, more positive feelings towards civic society. Continue reading

Winners and Losers in Gaza: On Victory and False Victory

Ramzy-BaroudIn the rush to analyze the outcome of Israel’s 51-day war in Gaza, dubbed Operation Protective Edge, some may have neglected an important factor: this was not a war by traditional definitions of warfare, thus the conventional analyses of victory and defeat is simply not applicable.

That being the case, how can we explain Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s triumphant statement on 28 August, and the massive celebrations on the streets of Gaza regarding the resistance ‘victory’ over Israel? To be truly fathomed, they must be understood in context. Continue reading

Robby Noel: End of an Era

VAya con Dios mi Amigo

Vaya con Dios, mi Amigo

By now, most of you know that Robby Noel will be leaving this geographical region of the Earth within a matter of days from this post.

September 8, 2014 marked the final broadcast on the Micro Effect and September 9, 2014 for the Republic Broadcasting Network. Time marches on and Robby has made a decision to return home to his family rather than participate in the ongoing destruction of this once great republic.

My personal history began with Robby on June 28, 1995 while we were brokers and co-broadcasters at the now defunct Viking International Trading. By 1996 Viking had begun to unravel for many reasons – part of which was theft of specie from the organization by those representing the firm. Other reasons included a naive owner who thought that the party would go on forever and continued to buy homes and cars as if there was no tomorrow. Tomorrow came and all was lost.

I went on to form my own firm, Kettle Moraine, Ltd, – which is still in existence – and Robby went on to other endeavors within the industry that we both have represented for so many years. Our mutual goal was always the satisfaction of out clientele.

In 2004 Robby was invited by John Stadtmiller to join the fledgling RBN and form a precious metals division – hence Republic Trading Group. If you do a Google search today – you’ll note the the Chamber of Commerce lists Robby Noel as the principal – a fact that surprised even him.

In 2012 I received a call from Robby while I was in the White Mountains of Arizona for a few days. He told me that he was coming back and wanted to work with me and represent Kettle Moraine, Ltd. with our ongoing endeavors. The deal was struck instantly and we have continued to work together, both as representatives of Kettle Moraine, but in addition for REpublic Trading Group once more.

Throughout all of these years, Robby has remained one of the most erstwhile and reliable broadcasters on the alternative media – only slowing down several years ago, when his health began to suffer. It is partially due to those same health issues that he has made the decision to return to the region of his birthplace.

For myself, I will miss my daily banter with Robby and wish him well – as do his longtime listeners. Who knows – maybe he’ll drop in from time to time from South Africa and let us know how he is doing, and challenge us with his vision of world events as seen from the other side of the world.

Vaya con Dios my friend,

Jeff

The Corporate Media In America: Orwell Rolls Over In His Grave

“The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power.” ~ Henry A. Wallace

“Do remember that dishonesty and cowardice always have to be paid for. Don’t imagine that for years on end you can make yourself the boot-licking propagandist of the Soviet régime, or any other régime, and then suddenly return to mental decency. Once a whore, always a whore.” ~ George Orwell

Who Are the 13 Percenters That Are Willfully Destroying the Minds of American Children?

demille_as_mccutchenThe feds set the course, undergirded by state government & various education factions, commandeered with bribes, threats & theft, destroyed the once proud institution of public education. What happened and continues to happen to the once vaunted public school system? Greed, transitioning to power, money and destruction. Citizens stood and are standing by helplessly allowing full-blown corruption in the P.S. system to mushroom, ignoring America’s Founding Principles.

Former Times Record editor Jack Moseley, on another subject, stated and is appropriate here, “it’s a lot of purty”, referring to the P.S. infrastructure, an apt description of the modern day public school systems, producing little academic achievements. Continue reading

Huntwork: Joe Biden Goes Rogue On ISIS

We Will Follow Them To The Gates Of Hell!

Joe-Biden-Hobo-With-A-Shotgun-PosterThe official response of the Obama administration to the recent beheading of two Americans in Syria by ISIS has been muddled at best. The often timid and tepid statements by various White House spokesmen, the State Department, and even the President himself in response to these specific tragedies and the general threats poised by ISIS have been vague, confusing, contradictory, and sometimes downright silly. (You do know that the members of ISIS are Muslims right? The White House apparently isn’t even sure on that one.)

Though the sharpness of the rhetoric by both Obama and Secretary of State Kerry has increased somewhat in the last day or two, only very limited air strikes have been carried out over the last few weeks and in a stunning statement Obama admitted that his administration has ‘no strategy yet’ for dealing with the ISIS strongholds and bases of power in Syria. And according to the State Department ISIS isn’t even at war with the US. Tell that to James Foley and Steven Sotloff and the blasted to bits ISIS fighters around the Mosul dam. Very similar statements were made in regards to pre 9-11 Al Qaeda, and the seeming hesitancy to acknowledge the truth of the situation by the current administration is somewhat disturbing.

Indians, Wolves, Grizzlies and Other Endangered Species Insanities

indian_woman_01In the early settlement days of the Pacific Northwest, the new inhabitants to a wild land encountered dangerous predators that were killing their livestock, domestic animals and sometimes people. Yes, wolves, bears and cougars were indigenous to the area. But as the human population grew, deadly run-ins with these animals occurred more frequent. It was said that in the pioneer days of Seattle, the people could not walk the streets at night for fear of being attacked by bears and cougars that would roam into town in search of food. In order to remove the threat, thankfully these predators were essentially hunted to extinction.

But radical environmentalists and the Indians, still clinging to a long-dead culture, are lobbying Congress to re-enter these dangerous animals into the North Cascades of Washington State. They have already re-entered wolves and grizzlies into the northern Rocky Mountain States and wolves into Northeastern Washington State. Once more, man is confronted with dangerous predators that kills their livestock and poses a considerable risk to their domestic animals and themselves. This has led to the unwritten law of “Shoot, Shovel and Shut up.” One Idaho rancher didn’t heed the law and was forced to kill a grizzly because it was coming too close to his penned livestock and his young children. Thinking he was doing the right thing he called the authorities to come remove the carcass. The authorities quickly arrested him for killing an endangered species. Continue reading

Ewart: Could The IRS Become America’s Gestapo?

“Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possessions.” ~ James Madison

the-mountain-road-movie-poster-1960-1020216141The other night we were watching the 1960-war movie “The Mountain Road” with James Stewart. It took place in China during World War II when the Japanese were advancing throughout the mainland of China. It was Stewart’s job to lead a small group of demolition experts to blow up an airport the U. S. was abandoning and then blow up bridges, ammunition dumps and sections of the mountain road to blunt the Japanese advancement. This would allow thousands of refugees to escape into the mountains and give time for the Chinese to build opposition forces.

During the trek over the mountains, Stewart and his men encountered tens of thousands of desperate, starving and fleeing Chinese refugees. They also encountered Chinese Army deserters who were hungry and dangerous. In a moment of compassion one of Stewart’s men took some cans of fruit to a crowd of refugees who then promptly trampled him to death to get to the food. Continue reading

Caruba: An Economist’s Bad Climate Advice

CO2_fraudIf I need my car repaired, I do not take it to a dentist. If I am seeking advice about the climate I check out what climatologists and meteorologists are saying, at least those who have not sold their souls to the global warming/climate change hoax.

On September 3 The Wall Street Journal published a commentary by Edward P. Lazear titled “The Climate Change Agenda Needs to Adapt to Reality: Limiting carbon emissions won’t work. Better to begin adjusting to a warming world.”

Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! It’s cooling, not warming. Continue reading

Fearing Political Islam: Why Was Gaza Betrayed

Ramzy-BaroudAsk any Arab ruler, and they will tell you of the great sacrifices their countries have made for Palestine and the Palestinians. However, both history and present reality are testaments, not only to Arab failure to live up to the role expected of them and stand in solidarity with their own oppressed brethren, but also to the official Arab betrayal of the Palestinian cause. The current war on Gaza, and the dubious role played by Egypt in the ceasefire talks between Hamas and Israel are cases in point.

Read this comment by Aaron David Miller, a scholar at the Wilson Center in Washington to appreciate the depth of the unmistakable Arab betrayal. “I have never seen a situation like it, where you have so many Arab states acquiescing in the death and destruction in Gaza and the pummeling of Hamas,” Miller told the New York Times. “The silence is deafening.” Continue reading

Felix: If it quacks like a duck … it must be a turtle

“Why We’re Definitely Not Headed for Another Ice Age.”

felixWhen I saw that headline in Newsweek, I thought, do they know something that I don’t? But once I read the article, it left me wondering how in the world they came to that conclusion.

It reminds me of the great retort by paleontologist Robert Bakker to those who did not agree with his belief that many kinds of dinosaurs were birds.

“There are still a few of my colleagues who think if it walks like a duck, breathes like a duck and grows like a duck, it must be a turtle,” said Bakker.

Let’s see if this Newsweek article is a duck or a turtle… Continue reading

Smith: Defending the Cross

mr_smithWar has not just come to America with the beheading of the U.S. “journalist” James Foley and the Islamic State’s declaration of war on the United States. Our nation has been under attack by the agents of Islam and Sharia law long before Sheik Mohammed al-Hanooti conspired to bomb the World Trade Center in 1993; and, with the rise of the Islamic State and its messianic vision, regarding Christians, Jews and infidels deserving of death, a new wave of terror is soon to be launched on America’s home-front, unless the United States and the free world exterminates the Islamofascists of the Islamic State.

White Mountains Lecture #13

Restoring middle-class pride and patriotism by putting the Jews in their place

~ Forward ~
alredTo speak out of turn, that’s what I am doing here, it’s insanity for a poor man to say anything important about politics and our fate as a nation in the context of all the status gradations and elite fortresses the Left Jews and the Right bourgeoisie have constructed to keep us in our place. So I am insane and absolutely brilliant in my analysis of where we are and where we are going if some of us don’t stand up. This is my final in this lecture series dedicated to the inclusion of towns like Tupelo, Mississippi and Show Low, Arizona and Pasadena, Texas and Detroit and Akron. As you read, my politician friends, especially Sylvia Garcia, you will see your role as redundant and artificial in the life and hopes of your people. I have something to offer, and you don’t. You would be better off, Sylvia, coming to my dreary hovel in Tupelo, Mississippi and doing my laundry, yes, you can do better for your folks by showing solidarity with the ninety percent of Latina women who are doing the laundry of white men because that’s where arrogant Mexicans and elite liberals always leave the rank and file of their people, doing the laundry of an intelligent white man who has more important things to do. I would let you do my dishes as well but I don’t want you in any intimate context. I am a revolutionary, Ms. Garcia, not a spoiled, taken-care-of hack-brat with unfounded self-confidence and the fellowship of a tarantula. The politicians of your ilk are zoo-keepers not officers in a disciplined army dedicated to communal uplift. It’s a well-paid profession but not really necessary because animals strike curious poses but they can generally take care of themselves which leaves the zoo-keeper as a unique animal-creature, a parasite, a parasite.

Man left with brain damage after ‘being attacked by gang of 20 black men’

“Waffle House isn’t safe fo’ no white people after Ferguson'”

Ralph Weems, IV

Ralph Weems IV

West Point man was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries after he and a friend were attacked by a group of around 20 people in a Huddle House parking lot, police said, potentially as retaliation for Michael Brown’s killing.

Ralph Weems IV, who is white, was injured early Saturday but is now in fair condition at North Mississippi Medical Center, hospital spokeswoman Genie Causey said.

A relative, Bradley Barnes of Madison, told The Associated Press by telephone on Sunday that his brother-in-law was in a medically induced coma following brain surgery.

Where the hell is the outrage now, Mr. Holder???

Alred: The governance of urban schools

White Mountains Lecture #12

Jewish-star-of-david2One of the reasons I have criticized Jewish management of our national politics and their control of the local media of big cities is that out of instinctive, historically determined fear they have made politics uninteresting. Politics stopped being tragic and comedic soon after the resignation of Richard Nixon. I would not be surprised if Jews manufactured he whole Oprah industry because Oprah is SAFE and PHONY, two things that erase anxiety for middle-class people and make them contented with boring, unexamined lives. Thus, the connection between moderate Clinton liberals and tolerance of illegal immigration from inferior cultures. Continue reading

Porous American Borders Too Tempting for Terrorists to Ignore

dvorak_2014A troubling storyline is developing along the U.S. southern border—more high-powered weaponry. Law enforcement agencies on America’s southern border have also confiscated a variety of military explosive devices– including sub-munitions.

Entering or exiting the United States, Juliette and Noe Ramirez were apprehended at the Texas/Mexico border on August 2, 2014 carrying sub-munitions, more commonly known as bomblets used in cluster bombs. “Juliette Ramirez was detained late Saturday night near the toll booth plaza north of the Del Rio International Bridge after a small explosive device was found hidden in a backpack,” the Del Rio News Herald reported.

Caruba: Freedom OF Religion, Not Freedom FROM Religion

freedom-religion_webThe Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution do not abandon religion, they embrace it. They do not, however, require that Americans believe in God, nor punish them for failing to do so.

Central to the liberties enshrined in these documents is the belief that they come from a higher power and America exists because of that belief. Without it there would have been no America. There are those among us who insist that, as a nation, we abandon faith in God and, if we do, America will cease to be a power for good in the world. Continue reading

Smith: In the Name of Humanity

obama_of-arabiaThe Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, under the command of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is evil incarnate, and, more than a threat to Christians and America, it represents a new global threat, which was a foreseeable consequence of arming the “rebels”, Al Qaeda, in Syria. Having burst forth as a product of the Syrian civil war and the U.S. premature withdrawal from Iraq on Obama’s orders, ISIS now seeks to expand the area it already controls, approximately an area the size of Great Britain, through violence and terror, beheading all unlike them – liberal Muslims, Christians, and Yazidis – raping the women and murdering entire families; they are destroying all who do not accept their vision of an Islamic state, their declared Caliphate, as they give them the ultimatum of “convert or die.” And now, this genocide of historic proportions demands that the U.S. and the free world exterminate the dire threat from ISIS through all the military might they can muster.

Obama, ever sympathetic to Sunni Muslims, more than likely illegally and surreptitiously armed the so-called “rebels” in Syria by late 2011 from Libya, as strong evidence suggests. Conclusive evidence from U.S. officials and Syrian figures reveals the CIA and U.S. Special Forces delivered weapons to the rebels, mostly Al Qaeda affiliates, around September 1, 2013, according to the Washington Post (9/11/13).

Hultberg: Why the Libertarian Party Fails

Nelson_HultbergMany in America’s freedom movement still hope that the Libertarian Party will one day become a power on the political scene to challenge the Democrat-Republican monolith. But in 42 years it hasn’t happened, and it probably won’t happen. There are some very distinct reasons why the LP and all other alternative / independent parties fail. This essay will examine them.

Let’s take, for example, the top independent parties out there: the Libertarian Party and the Constitution Party. Even though each of them have appeared at times to be a start toward genuine political reform, they repeatedly fail because they have structured themselves upon the mistake of instant idealism, which leads to their marginalization.

SARTRE: Forbidden History the Ultimate Taboo

Mayer_Amschel_Rothschild_NWOPeople are dumb because they do not know and refuse to learn the real history behind world events. Educational institutions do not function as seekers of truth, but as gatekeepers for narratives that defy common sense and defame historical facts. Society fosters the ultimate taboo against chronicles that differ with the established story of distortions and misdirection. Anyone who dares waver from accepted limits and suppositions immediately is a quack or an extremist. The dreaded label of being a conspiracy theorist, used to smear and marginalize researchers and pundits, is the height of anti-intellectualism and character assassination.

The dim-witted public, told to shun contradictory accounts, interpretations and disturbing explanations accepts sham history. The accurate course of events must remain hidden from the masses. The subject of a New World Order is not newfound. The process of world domination is as old as the formation of the first empire. Despite the annals of war and governments, the actual power that enslaves civilizations and humanity, is evil itself, in its purist form and manifestation. Continue reading

Out of the Mouths of Babes & Communists: Fundamentally Changing America…

b_mccutchen_foFrom an article in the Times Record, 8/11/14, “Immigrant-Rights Nonprofit learns from Arizona Organizations” we are told “Change agents with Arkansas United Community Coalition returned Sunday after a five-day trip to the heart of the border crisis in Arizona with ideas on how to inspire change in their communities. (Emphasis mine)

This is straight out of Saul Alinsky’s method for change (always meaning the destruction of Western values, e.g. liberty, private property, personal responsibility, rule of law, etc.) as outlined in his book “Rules for Radicals”.

Community organizing is the background of Barack Hussein Obama and radically changing what America used to be is the goal. It is obviously working since there is little recognizable that is left. Continue reading

The Dollar’s 70-year Dominance is Coming to an End!

Within a decade, greenback’s could be replaced as the world’s reserve currency

The dollar is currently boosted by being a reserve currency Photo: Reuters

In early July 1944, delegates from 44 countries gathered at the Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire. A three-week summit took place, at which a new system was agreed to regulate the international monetary and financial order after the Second World War.

The US was already the world’s commercial powerhouse, having eclipsed the British Empire several decades earlier. America was also on course to be among the victors of “Europe’s conflict”, even though its economy was largely unscathed by war. As such, Bretton Woods was US-dominated and produced a settlement largely on US terms.

Seventy years ago, that fateful summit ended. Its close marked the moment the dollar’s unquestionable supremacy was secured. Since then, global commerce has been conducted largely in dollars and leading economies have held the greenback as their primary reserve currency. Continue reading

Baroud: Gaza Changed Everything

Things Cannot Stay the Same after Israeli Genocide in Gaza

Ramzy-BaroudAfter every bloody episode of violence perpetrated by Israel, media spin doctors are often deployed with one grand mission: to absolve Israel of any responsibility in their acts of carnage.

Not only do these apologists demonize Palestinians, but anyone who dares to take a stand on their behalf. The main staple of this Israeli strategy has been blaming the victim. Such a tactic is nothing new in the way the so-called “Arab-Israeli conflict” has been presented in Western media, whose narrative has been much closer to that of Israeli official and media discourses than that of Palestinians. This continued despite the decades-long military occupation, successive wars, and countless massacres. Continue reading
