Who’s Lives Matter?
January 22 marks the 44th year since the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, along with its companion case Doe v. Bolton, that purported to legalize killing a pre-born baby’s life-for any reason, at any stage of development.
Since that tragic day, more than 58 million innocent children have been brutally killed by abortion. Continue reading
It’s not just cities that are providing a safe haven for illegal alien lawbreakers that include aliens who have been deported, murderers, robbers, thieves, rapists, pimps, con artists, drug smugglers, human trafficking perpetrators, terrorists and others of a deplorable nature, and yes, some non-criminal individuals and families. There are several states, as well as multiple counties in almost every state that defy Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) with their sanctuary policies. About 300 jurisdictions in America have been identified by ICE as having a policy, or are non-cooperative when it comes to immigration enforcement. Many cities, like Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York are in open defiance of federal immigration law, with their respective mayors publicly thumbing their collective noses at immigration authorities.

One more day should not pass before the United States Congress votes to immediately halt all funding to the United Nations and end our membership in the U.N., largely comprised of our enemies, which falsely presents itself as an organization dedicated to worldwide freedom, liberty and “social justice” for all. Not only does the U.N. support terrorism, it is anti-American and anti-Israeli, and through U.N. schemes, like Agenda 2030 and “sustainable development”, the U.N. promotes tyranny and the subversion of any mechanism for freedom, such as our U.S. Constitution, thus promoting the suppression of the unalienable rights of all mankind.
The U.N. claims that it seeks to create a peaceful world and protect human rights, and yet, many of the world’s most troublesome and violent nations and human rights violators — Russia, China, Indonesia, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and Cuba — sit on the U.N. Human Rights Council. One should recall that the United States was removed from the U.N. Human Rights High Commission in 2001, in retaliation for the U.S.’s defense of Israel, an all time high point for U.N. hostility towards the U.S. Continue reading
“The Carnage Stops Right Now; From This Day Forward It Will Only Be America First”
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans, and people of the world, thank you. We the citizens of America are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people. Together we will determine the course of America, and the world, for many, many years to come. We will face challenges. We will confront hardships, but we will get the job done. Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent. Thank you… Continue reading
As I near the end of my sixth decade in this life, I continue to look back in awe of all of the many changes which have occurred – not just in my lifetime – but throughout history. History… something that is no longer dealt with to any degree of honesty in this nation – especially in the public education system. When did it all begin to change? When was TRUTH removed from our system? It may have left the system – but it has not left me.
I look back at my (somewhat) formative years, and to this day I can still remember the names of over 90% of my teachers. Those who I cannot remember, obviously had little impact on me. Some were neighbors, others became tutors to me in troubled areas – long after they were no longer a part of my daily life, and still others I met some years later, and were surprised that I could actually instruct them. But as with many of us, there is always one…
It was 1958 and that year I attended the Crestwood Elementary School in Northbrook, Illinois. It was this one fortuitous year that I would receive the greatest gift of my ‘formal’ education – a year to remember for many reasons – chiefly among them was my teacher – Donald Adair… [Continue to the Metropolis Café}
On the day President Trump is inaugurated, thousands of writers in the United States will express their indignation. “In order for us to heal and move forward …,” say Writers Resist, “we wish to bypass direct political discourse, in favour of an inspired focus on the future, and how we, as writers, can be a unifying force for the protection of democracy.”
And: “We urge local organizers and speakers to avoid using the names of politicians or adopting ‘anti’ language as the focus for their Writers Resist event. It’s important to ensure that nonprofit organizations, which are prohibited from political campaigning, will feel confident participating in and sponsoring these events.”
Thus, real protest is to be avoided, for it is not tax exempt. Continue reading
Part I: How the “CHOICE” Fix Won’t Fix Common Core
Is There Such A Thing As A Parallel School System? Looking at the plans puzzling together for a Trump Presidency, education is front and foremost on many parents’ minds. Parent warriors have become concerned to the point of being totally stressed over the appointment of billionaire Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education. Why is this?
President-Elect Trump promised a vision of life without Common Core —
• A day of looking forward to our kids not being manipulated with the behavioral conditioning processes of teacher-trained Skinnerian techniques;
• A day without government data mining our children and inputting their private behavioral data over to the Feds.
Is our battle over yet? Can we rest assured that Donald Trump will keep his promise to rid our schools of all of the Common Core baggage? Are solid academics on the horizon, again? Continue reading
Dow Chemical Wants Farmers to Keep Using a Pesticide Linked to Autism and ADHD
On Mondays, Magda and Amilcar Galindo take their daughter Eva to self-defense class. Eva is 12 but her trusting smile and arching pigtails make her look younger. Diagnosed with autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, Eva doesn’t learn or behave like the typical 12-year-old. She struggles to make change, and she needs help with reading and social situations. Eva’s classmates are sometimes unkind to her, and Magda worries for her daughter’s feelings and her safety. So once a week, after they drive her from her middle school in Modesto, California, to her tutor in nearby Riverbank, the Galindos rush off to the gym where they cheer Eva on as she wrestles with a heavy bag and punches the air with her skinny arms.
The Galindos wish they could have protected their daughter from whatever originally caused her troubles, which began in infancy, when she screamed incessantly. As she got older, Eva was slow to talk and make friends. Nine years ago, when her pediatrician diagnosed her with autism, he told the Galindos that nobody really knew why children developed such problems. And in some ways, that is still true; both the causes of these neurodevelopmental conditions and their increase among American children remain mysterious. (Read the complete report)
The United Nations is launching a new initiative to promote “sustainable development, including gender equality and human rights” by controlling the content of school textbooks.
Under the plan, announced in December 2016 in “Policy Paper 28,” the UN is ordering all governments to review the contents of their school textbooks, and eliminate the use of books that do not teach globalist values.
Their goal is to force local schools to ensure “global citizenship education and education for sustainable development, including gender equality and human rights, are mainstreamed in national education policies, curricula, teacher education and student assessments,” the paper reveals.

Now before you turn all red faced and apoplectic from the title, we’ll explain. Our last week’s article was entitled “Putin Needs to be Injected With a Large Dose of Estrogen“. In the 11 years we have been writing a weekly column, we have never received so many vitriolic, vile and openly hostile responses to one of our articles. The “hate America” crew and 911 Conspiracy Theorists came out of the woodwork to attack the entire premise of the article, which was Putin just isn’t a good guy and is in fact an existential threat to American sovereignty and security.

A Study in Education
At the time the Constitution was written, education was not even considered a function of local government, let alone the federal government.
But the Federal Governments Department of Education’s shaky constitutionality goes way beyond that.
Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution enumerates the things over which Congress has the power to legislate. Not only does the list not include education, while there is no plausible rationale for squeezing education in under the commerce clause, We are sure the Supreme Court found a rationale, but it cannot have been plausible.

The following by noted contributor, Neal Ross – was originally posted in response to another reader’s comments about the potential for a citizen uprising in America today – a ‘Revolution’ as it were. Neal’s’ assessment of the then and now situations is worth a single posting of it’s own. ~ J.B.
The problem, or difference as I see it between then and now is that back then with the third that was Tories they either relocated to England when America declared independence, or they accepted the outcome of the Revolution when we won. The other 33% went with the flow and would have continued as British subjects had we lost, or continued on as free Americans. It didn’t matter one way or the other to them. Continue reading
Most schools today, both public and private have kindergartens. They have become an accepted part of educational life in this country and others as well.
This was not always so. When I first attended public school, way back in the mid-1940s, there was no kindergarten where I went. Although some schools undoubtedly had them, all schools did not. They had not become totally entrenched, although their promoters had been working on that project with much zeal. Their efforts seem to have paid off. Kindergarten is now as much a part of school life as the seventh grade.
I have, in the past, written articles and even a couple booklets, dealing with the origins of public, or government, schools in this country. These “institutions of learning” have a history that is never quite openly discussed in all of its ramifications. We often see the names of founders and promoters of public education mentioned in articles or essays, but we are seldom told all that much about these people and what they really believed. Most educators don’t want us to go there. Continue reading
In the evening of December 9, 2017 on my daily broadcast, Life, Liberty & All That Jazz I spent in excess of one hour presenting the following transcribed columns. It will not only be the last time which I make reference to or discuss the eight year reign of Emperor Obama the Last – but it will be the last posting which will be made regarding this disgusting human being. What more could possibly be said about the Usurper? What more could I care to say?
In addition to what is posted below would be supplemented by a column which has already been posted on this site, His Legacy: Ignoring The Genocide Of Christians Over An 8 Year Period, written by Retired US Naval Captain, Joseph R. John as submitted to the Federal Observer by Retired U.S. Border Patrol Agent, friend and frequent contributor, John W. Slagle.
Au revoir Mr. Obama – and don’t let the back door of the White House hit you in the ass as you leave. It is none to soon and the fumigators will be arriving soon. Your new walled-abode awaits you down the street from a Muslim Mosque right in the heart of Washington, DC. I hope that your prayer rugs have been cleaned – oh – and forget the virgins. You have already screwed enough people on this planet.
Will Donald Trump improve on the American Experience? Only time will tell – but we will give him that time – just as we did Bathhouse Barry. Those of us who have lived through this past eight years, didn’t sit around crying like a bunch of pussified snow-flakes – we fought the fight like adults. Let’s get to work…
Without Apology I am,
For 8 years Obama failed to condemn the genocide perpetrated by Al Q’ieda, ISIS, and members of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) who continued to butcher over 200,000 Syrian and Assyrian Christians. Current media reports state Obama is trying to salvage, what he calls, “His Legacy.” Obama will never be able to salvage “His Legacy”, because he turned a blind eye to the genocide that Al Q’ieda, ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorist, and members of the MB perpetrated against Syrian and Assyrian Christians. Obama repeatedly ignored pleas by 56 US Congressmen, on both sides of the isle, to provide Christians families with small arms weapons to protect themselves.
Al Q’adea, ISIS, and the MB crucified Christians, beheaded them, burned them alive, drowned them in cages, buried them alive, cut small children’s bodies in two, forced men to kneel in order to shoot them behind the head, and threw Christians from high buildings to their deaths. In the last 2 years, ISIS has perpetrated 143 “Radical Islamic Terrorists” attacks in 29 countries, murdering 2043 people in “Hate Crimes” and “Crimes Against Humanity”; those murderous acts were executed to prevent Christians from exercising their “Freedom of Religion.” Continue reading
“Either subdue the bully or the bully will own you, or enslave you, or kill you.” ~ Ron Ewart
Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, or dictator if you will, is the ultimate alpha male, loaded with testosterone, insane as a bull elephant in musk and crazy like a fox. He is the mirror image of most despots in the persona of a Hitler, a Lenin, a Stalin, or even Mao of China. He’s obsessed with himself and obsessed with power, as are all despots.
NOTE: We have taken a lot of “blowback” (criticism) on this article. We answer those criticisms in our next column. Continue reading
I’m going to come right out and say it; in a society where we are supposed to self governing, what good is a Constitution when the overwhelming majority of the people do not know, or care, what it says are the powers given the government it establishes? Continue reading
On April 28, 2004, decent Americans were shocked to see pictures of American soldiers torturing prisoners in a military prison in Iraq known as Abu Ghraib. While there were many who saw nothing wrong with such atrocities, many more were totally repulsed. “How the hell did these people get in our Army” was the response of Senator Ben “Nighthorse” Campbell from the state of Colorado. Strange comments indeed coming from an American Indian whose ancestors were tortured, raped, killed at the hands of the same army. (Northern Cheyenne) Continue reading
“Every Jew comes to Eretz Yisrael, every tree that is planted in the soil of Israel, every soldier added to the army of Israel, constitutes another spiritual stage, literally; another stage in the process of redemption.“ ~ Rabbi Zvi Yehuda
No strangers to treachery and betrayal, the Jewish people of Israel were betrayed once more on December 23rd, 2016 by a hostile United Nations and a 14-0 Security Council vote on Resolution 2334, that malevolently states the Wailing Wall, Israel’s holiest site, is illegal in international law. This betrayal was only possible due to President Obama’s anti-semitic and anti-Israel policies based on lies and false assumptions and premises, along with his orders to have the U.S. abstain from the vote. And now, the Jewish people’s fierce life and death struggle for the survival of their nation has a new sense of urgency unseen since May 14th, 1948 and Ben Gurion’s declaration of independence for the sovereign Jewish State of Israel. Continue reading
I hope that the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump will act immediately to restore equal justice, equal rights and equal opportunity to those whom the Obama administration has denied all these things — boys, men and fathers. An excellent starting point would be the Department of Education, which will be under his direct administrative control (“Donald Trump and Bill Gates find common ground,” Web, Dec. 28). Continue reading
CA Marxists Ramping Up Destabilization of the Golden State
As Chicanas and Chicanos of Aztlán, we are a nationalist movement of Indigenous Gente that lay claim to the land that is ours by birthright. As a nationalist movement we seek to free our people from the exploitation of an oppressive society that occupies our land. Thus, the principle of nationalism serves to preserve the cultural traditions of La Familia de La Raza and promotes our identity as a Chicana/Chicano Gente. M.E.CH.A
Immediately following the November election, California Governor Jerry Brown appointed U.S. Rep. Xavier Becerra (D) to replace State Attorney General Kamala Harris, who won election to the U.S. Senate seat vacated by the retiring Sen. Barbara Boxer.
Many wonder why Xavier Becerra was chosen by Brown. But all anyone has to do is peek into the radical California Legislature, and fanatical Gov. Jerry Brown, to see the trend of militant Marxist, Socialist, Jesuit, Liberation Theology, Latino activism on the increase. Continue reading
All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects in their Constitution or Confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation. ~ John Adams
Aside from those who don’t have much of it, money is one of those things people take for granted. People open their wallets, or purses, and pull out a couple pieces of paper/clothe and expect that they will be able to exchange it for a certain amount of goods or services. But what is that stuff you carry around and use to make purchases? Money you say? I don’t think so.
The Sixth Edition of Bouvier’s Dictionary of Law defines money as: gold, silver, and some other less precious metals. What you hold in your wallets and purses is currency; and you should at least know a basic history of how it came to replace real money. Continue reading
Palestine map created by the British War Office in 1924
Israel is dizzy. January 20th has been like another Christmas Day and Donald Trump is jolly old Santa Claus bearing gifts. The writing is already on the wall as President-elect Trump has appointed an extremist, David Friedman, as the next US Ambassador to Israel who intends to relocate the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and who supports the expansion of illegal colonies that have already sliced up the envisaged Palestinian state into South Africa-like Bantustans.
Thus, it must be odd, if not altogether provocative, to suggest that a Trump presidency could be the coup de grace that Palestinians and, in fact, the entire Middle East needs to liberate themselves from the weight of an overbearing, arrogant and futile American foreign policy that has extended for decades. Continue reading
You’re witnessing a fantastic fit of pique from Barack Hussein Obama. This American president is watching a legacy of statism, Islamism, globalism, elitism, post-Americanism, post-Christianity slip away, and he’s fighting tooth-and-nail for the ideological sludge in which he has mired America.
Obama is having a terrific tantrum, the effects of which President-elect Donald Trump must reverse. Why so? Aside from a few laudable initiatives—trade with Cuba and a lesser involvement in the Syrian civil war—Obama has fought for nothing but the dreadful propositions already mentioned. Trump has promised to fight for the American people. Never the twain shall meet. Continue reading
While Donald Trump maneuvers to cleanse government’s cesspool, communities face a bigger challenge at home.
Academics, classroom teachers, newspapers and television, movie stars and the Cultural Arts are seducing our children into believing it is their duty to relinquish their rights for a coveted scrunch into the bloated backseat of the global collective.
Like a crafty Tom Sawyer, who made the drudgery of whitewashing Aunt Polly’s fence so glamorous his friends eagerly surrendered their apples, tadpoles and marbles for the honor, our government persuades Americans that loyalty to fairness, the environment and climate change outweighs their rights over their own property. Continue reading
