In the last several months the Department of Homeland Security’s policy concerning the security of our southern border has drastically changed. In a memorandum written on November 20, 2014, by Department of Homeland Security Director Jeh Johnson, the latest of our present administration’s interpretation of law is given in detail. Detail, in this case, is relative to interpretation. I asked an attorney friend of mine to read the memorandum and give me his opinion. It is, he said, full of legal terminology and jargon that can be interpreted several different ways. (Jeh Johnson and Barack Obama are both attorneys.) The memorandum can be found on the Department of Homeland Security’s website and the title is, Policies for the Apprehension, Detention and Removal of Undocumented Immigrants. (If they cross the border illegally, they are not undocumented, they are illegal.) The first sentence states the memorandum “reflects new policies for the apprehension, detention and removal of aliens in this country.” It is interesting to note that this supersedes at least five other memorandums written on this subject since Obama became president.

One thing about Chicago that can’t be denied; it’s a corrupt town.
So much so, that violating the law has become second nature to it’s inhabitants, all the way back from Al Capone, to our country’s current Liar In Chief, Barack Obama, and his double axe handled ass wife, Michelle.
They all have a common interest embedded in lies to achieve a desired result, so we really can’t blame Barack Obama for being the worlds biggest bull shitter.
Cheating and lying is endemic to the Chicago political structure. Continue reading

Exhibit #1: “What I really think of this job.”
Have you ever heard the word fester? Do you know what it means? It can be used in many connotations, but there is one which I would like to take a moment to discuss. In this connotation to fester means “a negative feeling or problem which becomes worse, or more intense, especially through long-term neglect or indifference.” and for those of you who may not know this, indifference is the same as apathy. Festering is what happens when you get a sliver but don’t remove it immediately; it sits there and fills up with puss and may become infected. Continue reading

A few days ago, we received an e-mail containing the story from a doctor who treated a 25-year old illegal alien mother with eight children. The doctor writes:
“Today I had a 25-year old mother with 8 kids – that’s right 8, all illegal anchor babies and she had the nicest nails, cell phone, hand bag, clothing, etc. She makes about $1,500 monthly for each anchor child. You do the math. That is $12,000 PER MONTH. What could you do with $ 12,000 PER MONTH for say the next ten years? Does she pay taxes on that $12,000? Not likely! I used to say, we are the dumbest nation on earth. Now I must say and sadly admit: WE are the dumbest people on earth (that includes ME) for we elected the idiot ideologues who have passed the bills that allow this.”
The Doctor is right of course, whether the story is true or not. Nevertheless, that this kind of thing is happening in America on a massive scale is not in dispute. Sadly, the stories like this one keep growing. There are hundreds more of these legislated injustices inflicted on our tax dollars and they are too numerous to list here. We only need cite Obama’s proposed $4 Trillion dollar budget that is full of pork and massive income redistribution. Continue reading
Every so often a nonfiction book comes along that, because of its objective, comprehensive coverage of a hot topic, should be carefully read with a highlighter in hand by everyone. That new book is “Unprecedented” by David Ray Griffin. Be warned, this book will probably bum you out. It presents the most readable treatment of the global warming and climate change issue that anyone could wish for. It is not an emotional rant, but rather a carefully organized and detailed discussion. Most significantly, with carefully documented sources, it allows a reader to fully appreciate the compelling and overwhelming scientific evidence supporting a negative view of our planet’s and civilization’s future.

“History is philosophy teaching by examples.” ~ Thucydides, The History of the Peloponnesian War
Human consciousness and the ability to understand that which really occurred in the past, is a skill that many people have little experience with mastering. Scholarship and researching the yesteryear relies upon analyzing accounts of others and is usually based on chronicles written centuries ago. Most of the original evidence used in writing the accounts may be lost, based upon oral myths or accurate translations of vanished languages. Even when the original sources are impeccable in their authenticity or go unquestioned in the ivory towers of academic scrutiny, the crucial question still remains, Was It So? Attempts to provide definitive proof, when it comes to explaining political events, relies more often on the art of understanding the connection among factions, based within the context of their intended agendas than smoking gun documents.

On Wednesday January 17, 1979, amidst a group of other young men, I stood in a room in Oakland California and raised my right hand and stated the following words, “I, Neal H. Ross, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same…“
I can’t say what was running through the minds of those other young men in the room thirty plus years ago, but I know upholding the Constitution was the last thing on mine. I had recently been laid off due to budget shortfalls in the State of California which caused me to lose a damned good job working for our city’s public works department which had vacation, a pension, and medical. So I was in need of a job, desperate, and running out of options. The military seemed my only option, so I chose the easiest path, the Air Force. As I stood there mindlessly repeating that oath I was thinking more about what I had gotten myself into than about defending a document I had never read in its entirety. Continue reading
There is only one hope to stop the tyrannical rot of statism stealing over our country. We must challenge the Democrat-Republican monopoly of politics that foments the rot.
Is this being redundant? Heard all this before? Perhaps, but our most defiant Founding Father, Samuel Adams, was very redundant in his pursuit of justice. He told his fellows repeatedly: “It does not take a majority to prevail…but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” Irate and tireless are what’s important here. We can save our country only if we patriots (who are the minority) relentlessly challenge the Democrat-Republican monopoly and the egregious falsity it spews out every election year. Continue reading
I know some of the people who read my articles may not be Christian, and therefore some of the things I am about to say may not sit well with them, but these are my views and as long as the First Amendment still retains some of its protection over freedom of speech I intend to keep speaking what’s on my mind. You can take what I say with a grain of salt if you want, but I believe that evil exists, it has a name and a face and it is currently more powerful than ever.
If you have read the Bible what is the first thing you read about man after making their appearance on Earth? It is how the serpent tempted Eve, and how she in turn convinced Adam to eat the forbidden fruit. Their disobedience to God’s command not to eat from the tree of knowledge caused them to be banned from Eden. Whether or not you believe in the Bible as being the word of God literally, the first story, (if you want to call it that), is of how succumbing to evil causes man to lose that which is precious to him.
Fast forward to the Founding of our Republic…
Although there were numerous sects in existence at the time of our nation’s founding, and they all held a certain degree of animosity towards each other, they were all basically God fearing men. Even Jefferson, who was not convinced of the divinity of Christ, stated that the teachings of Jesus were the “outlines of a system of the most sublime morality which has ever fallen from the lips of man.”
Nonetheless, in his Summary View of the Rights of British America, Jefferson writes, “God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure if we have removed their only firm basis: a conviction in the minds of men that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.”
In his Farewell speech to the nation, George Washington declared, “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensible supports.” Now I’m not trying to force my religious beliefs upon anyone. I am, however trying to establish the fact that the men who created this system of government held certain beliefs, principles if you will, and it was upon those principles that this system was founded.
They did not want to force religion, or any particular sect of religion upon anyone, but they believed that for our system to survive the people must retain some degree of morality and virtue, and that religion provided a means to instill these qualities in people. When James Madison stood on the floor of the Virginia Assembly to argue in favor of the proposed Constitution, he stated, “Is there no virtue among us? If there be not, we are in a wretched situation. No theoretical checks — no form of government can render us secure. To suppose liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea.”
Now chimerical is a word you don’t hear that often these days. What it means is that it is fantastical, not achievable. So what Madison meant is that if we wanted to retain our liberty, our happiness, we had to remain virtuous. Otherwise our system would fail, no matter how perfectly it was designed.
As in almost everything, there are polar opposites. There is hot, and there is cold, there is joy and there is sadness. Everything has an opposite, like the Yin and the Yang, if you will. So therefore if our system was designed by good men, upon good principles, would it be too far a stretch of the imagination to believe that anyone who would work to undermine, or bring it down, is to be considered as being bad…or in this particular instance, evil?
But honestly, how could anyone do that, bring down our country? After all, it has checks and balances in government, we the people vote for candidates, so how could anyone undermine or bring it down? Well, that’s what I’m writing this for, to explain how it has been done.
Mankind has a fatal flaw in that when things are going good we tend to get apathetic and complacent…we lower our guard and bad things happen. I’ve already provided one quote from James Madison when he stood on the floor arguing in favor of the Constitution, now I will provide another. During that same speech Madison said, “Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpations…“
There are a couple of anecdotes, or metaphors, that I would like to insert here. I can’t claim how valid and truthful they are, but they serve to describe what I see as having happened. The first is the old saying that if you put a frog into boiling water it will jump out. But if you put that same frog into cold water and slowly turn up the temperature it will become accustomed to the changes until it boils to death.
The second is a story about how to capture pigs. Supposedly this student at a large university asked his professor out of the blue if he knew how to capture wild pigs. The professor thought it was a joke, but the student was serious. So the student told him that first you put out some corn. Once the pigs get used to the corn they begin eating it. Then one day you put up some fencing behind it. Once the pigs get used to that fence they resume eating the corn. You continue this process, putting up more sides of the fence until you have a cage with a door. Once the pigs are used to these additions then when they come to feed you slam the door shut trapping the pigs. Eventually they will return to feeding not even realizing they have lost their freedom.
Like I said, I can’t tell how much factual basis these two metaphors are, but they serve the purpose of showing that if change is made gradually people will become accustomed to it until the damage wrought by this change is irreparable.
For our country, our Republic, to be brought down the changes had to come gradually, without our even noticing that they were happening. Unless an event is tragic and deeply burned into their memories, most people go day to day and barely think about what happened a month ago, let alone decades, or centuries ago. Where they to actually think about things, or even be capable of thinking about these things, they might be able to step back and look at the history of this country and see those gradual and silent encroachments that Madison spoke of. However, since they aren’t, and are, more often than not, ruled by impulse and emotion, they do not see the damage their apathy and complacency is allowing to occur.
There is an evil in this country and it is spreading its tentacles across the land like a slow moving cancer. Soon, if it is not so already, it will be too late to stop it. In The New Freedom, (1913), by Woodrow Wilson, we read, “Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the Field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” That was over a century ago, and that power has become more entrenched, more pervasive, and more detrimental to our Republic and our liberty. Yet so many I speak to about it refuse to even accept the possibility that it exists.
Just as the metaphor about the pigs, as long as the people in this country still have jobs, still have homes, still can feed their families and watch TV, they remain oblivious to what is going on right before their very eyes. Yet this evil, this cancer is spreading and it WILL bring America down if people do not open their eyes and accept that it exists.
I just took a break from writing this to Google the metaphor about the boiling frog. It appears it is an urban legend, or a myth. That is good…not because I really care about the fate of a frog, but because of how it is a myth. It seems that up until a point the frog will remain in the water. But then there comes a time when the frog realizes the water is becoming too hot and will jump out, if possible.
Why is this good? Well, like the frog there must come a time when people, even the ones who have had their heads buried in the sand for the longest, will come to realize that something isn’t right in America and will begin to ask questions.
This evil that is spreading across America knows this, and has planned accordingly. It realized that at some point Americans were going to begin asking questions about the way things were going in this country. They had to come up with a way of controlling that, or at least holding it off until their plans were too far along to be stopped.
Deep down I truly believe that most Americans, and I say most, are patriotic and love their country. You’ll notice though that I did not say that they are informed. It is difficult to mislead, or fool an informed person. And uninformed, or misled person is easily fooled.
It was therefore essential for this evil to control the dissemination of information in this country, and where are the two places that most people obtain their knowledge and information? Why in schools were they are educated, and from the media which provides them with their news. If they could gain control of what we are taught, and what we are told, they could begin to shift the belief systems of the entire nation towards their goal.
This evil, if anything, is an infiltrator. If it cannot infiltrate everything it wants, it can infiltrate enough to exert an extreme amount of pressure on those who oppose it’s agenda. Unlike in physics were opposite poles of a magnet attract each other, in human beings we tend to be attracted to those who share the same likes and beliefs as we do.
This evil has a hierarchy, a chain of command so to speak. I cannot say for certain who is in charge, if there even is a person in charge. I say even if because it could be that it may simply be the devil himself who is behind it all, influencing those who are easily corruptible. The deeper one digs into this conspiracy the wilder the theories get. I have even heard some that claim reptilian aliens are behind it all, that’s how crazy these conspiracies can get and you have to be careful not to fall for them all.
However, I can tell you about parts of it. I’m sure you have at one time or another heard the name Rockefeller. David Rockefeller is Honorary Chairman of an organization called the Council on Foreign Relations, and the Head of the Rockefeller Foundation.
The Council on Foreign Relations claims to be a think tank, but they are the nexus of this evil that is spreading across America. As I said, people of like minds tend to congregate, and the CFR is where people who believe that our Constitution, and the concept of individual liberty, are outdated. The membership roster of the CFR looks like a who’s who list from across the spectrum in this country. It contains members of our government, high ups within the armed forces, members of the news media, and academia. Then there is The Rockefeller Foundation, a Non Profit Organization, or NPO, which issues grants and funds programs that it believes in and wishes to see promoted.
A bit about the Rockefellers. Two years after Woodrow Wilson claimed he had heard people speak to him in fear about that hidden power in America, Congressman Oscar Calloway stood on the floor of the House of Representatives and said, “In March 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper word and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press…They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers.
An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; and editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.”
I mention this because Morgan was a close friend, who sent associates of his, as did Rockefeller, to Jekyll Island off the coast of Georgia, to create the plan that would create the Federal Reserve Bank. They are all in this together, different tentacles of this evil that has spread across the country. This was a major step for them, gaining control of the news print media. Their control over the media has expanded exponentially since then.
Did you know that there are 1,500 newspapers, 1,100 magazines, 9,000 radio stations, 1,500 TV stations and 2,400 publishers in America? Probably not. Then I am sure you didn’t know that all of those, and I mean ALL OF THEM, are owned by six corporations and managed by only 272 executives.
We are not told the truth by any of the news outlets we rely upon for the news. Just recently Brian Williams of NBC has come under fire for statements he made that have been proven to be false. Williams claims a foggy memory. The only people that have memory problems are those who are getting old and those who lie a lot and can’t keep their lies straight in their minds. We do not have a free press anymore, our information is written for us and scripted to sway our opinions in the directions wanted by its owners.
In 1919 Upton Sinclair wrote a book wherein he quotes John Swinton, who was head of the editorial staff at the New York Times. Swinton is quoted as saying, “There is no such thing as a free press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who would dare to write his honest opinion. The business of the journalist is to destroy truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell himself, his country, and his race, for his daily bread. We are tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are jumping jacks; they pull our strings, we dance; our talents, our possibilities, and our lives are the property of these men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”
Need more proof? How about when, at a meeting of the Trilateral Commission in 1991, Rockefeller said, “We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights and publicity during those years.”
Now that quote is third party hearsay as no one outside the Trilateral Commission is allowed to attend their meetings. But, Rockefeller, in his memoirs, did say “For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world if you will.
If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and am proud of it.”
Let’s just play devil’s advocate and pretend I’m correct in stating that these people own and control the media. We still have our schools to teach our kids the truth. Honestly, do you really believe that? After all that I have written about that none of you knew about before, you still think your schools are teaching you about our nation’s history and its system of government? If anything, the history they are teaching you has been revised to make America look bad and to eliminate any efforts to instill patriotism and an understanding of your rights. That is the last thing they want you to know.
This crap has been going on for generations. Academics are constantly revising this, eliminating that, until what we are taught now in schools is a complete perversion of the truth and designed to brainwash our children into accepting whatever anyone in a position of authority tells them.
It is truly insidious how effective they have been. We have entire generations of people living in this country who don’t have the slightest idea of what their rights are or the purpose for which their government was instituted. These people may be will well intentioned, but they have been completely misled and lied to…and the problem is that they have been so well conditioned that when they hear the truth it sounds like the ramblings of a mad man.
People today believe that we are a democracy when we are not. They believe that it is perfectly okay for our government to take away a few of our rights for the public good and safety, when it is not. It is all because no one has been taught to think for themselves. It’s almost like in the first Matrix film where Neo is jacked in and all that data is being fed into his mind. He didn’t think to obtain it, it was programmed into him. The same goes for Americans today, what they consider knowledge is in truth nothing but programming. They didn’t have to think to obtain it, it was repeated over and over until people accepted it as the truth. Critical thinking, questioning, doubting, never came into the picture…people simply accepted what they were told as the truth. That pattern continues today with people accepting whatever anyone in a position of authority tells them, be it in the media, law enforcement, or government.
For one who has, to steal a movie quote, ‘taken the red pill’ and investigated this rabbit hole of evil that has spread across the land it is truly frightening. To see how effective they have been at altering the course of a nation and conditioning its people to accept it without a fight.
I sometimes feel like the guy at the end of Invasion of the Body Snatchers when he is surrounded by replacement people from the pods. I sometimes ask myself what the hell can we do to stop this, if anything. Honestly, it scares the shit out of me.
In concluding there are three quotes I want to leave you with. The first comes from Samuel Adams, written in 1775, “No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.”
The next comes from Science Fiction author Isaac Asimov, “There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”
And finally, and this one is the most frightening to me, this from Hendrik Willem van Loon, “Any formal attack on ignorance is bound to fail because the masses are always ready to defend their most precious possession – their ignorance.”
We have forsaken the principles upon which this country was founded. We have abandoned morality and virtue for self-gratification and entertainment. We have give up thinking and accepted programming and conditioning. And the sad thing is that we don’t even realize it.
I cannot decide whether to be angry, sad, or frightened. I can tell you that, aside getting back to my earlier metaphors, the water is around 200 degrees now and that pig fence now has a gate. Are you going to sit there and die, or have your remaining freedom taken from you, or are you going to wake up and try and stop this evil before it is too late?
“Disinvestment” of fossil fuel holdings is misguided, irresponsible, lethal – and racist

Feckless negotiating with Iran over the past decade, especially these past two years, have burned an image of a miserable Chamberlain-style failure in the minds of the American people, as President Obama and Secretary Kerry have allowed the greatest threat in the 21st century to become our reality. For all intents and practical purposes, Iran is now essentially a nuclear armed missile state, and rather than pursue more negotiations, the at risk nations, such as the United States, Britain, Germany, France and much of Europe and Israel, must seriously consider a preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, before its weaponry can be perfected and mass produced. And even then, small nukes handed to Iran’s proxies, Hamas and Hezbollah, will remain a threat, as long as the Ayatollahs hold their iron grip on Iran. Continue reading
“Experience hath shown, that even under the best forms of government, those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.” ~ Thomas Jefferson
Given the Senate confirmation hearings for U. S. Attorney General Obama nominee Loretta Lynch, this article is even more relevant.
U. S. Attorney General, Oath of Office:
“I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter So help me God.”
U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder signed the above Oath of Office when he took office. The reader can decide after reading this article, if Holder has been faithful to his Oath, or is just another crooked politician obsessed with power. Continue reading
Authors note: This will be a multi-part presentation in response to several requests for more information on the founding era of our country, which in many cases is contrary to what we were all taught in history and government/civics classes. It is also beneficial to understand the motives of many at the very beginning of our country. Such motives will provide insight into what our government has morphed into during its existence.
Among us in our country today are those who are strong advocates of an omnipotent, centralized government whose every law must be obeyed and every wish granted without question or discussion, much less dissent. What are the origins of those beliefs? Could it be a desire for a king as one sees in the Scriptures (I Samuel Chapter 8) when the Israelites asked Samuel to “make us a king to judge us like all the nations?” (v 5 SKJV) Was this the first recorded act of people rejecting Natural Law in favor of the laws of man (a king)?

Sabri Samirah, a Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood member exiled from the United States during the Bush administration, has been allowed to return to the country and is now working to foster greater Muslim involvement in U.S. politics.
In Illinois last autumn, Samirah launched UMMA, an organization aimed at furthering the political agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood.
UMMA, more commonly transliterated Ummah, is an Arabic word signifying a community with a common history, and is sometimes used to refer to the worldwide community of Muslims, similar to the way in which some Christians might refer to the worldwide Church. Continue reading
I offer the following thoughts for consideration being fully aware that cognitive discourse in this country has long since been replaced by rampant emotionalism. For several generations, students in the American Gulags have been taught to “feel” while rote memorization of critical material is referred to in the current educational world as “drill and kill.” Children are taught that 2 plus 2 being 4 is not absolute and is subject to rationalization by our betters. Continue reading
Prior to the summer of 1787 the government of these States united was a joke. It lacked any real authority to enforce the laws it passed and the States went about their business disregarding their responsibility to provide revenue to support it. Also, due to no regulatory ability there were so many varied restrictions and tariffs imposed that trade amongst the States, and with foreign nation’s suffered so much that it almost completely can to a standstill. Something had to be done, and done quickly. Continue reading
“The value of history is, indeed, not scientific but moral: by liberalizing the mind, by deepening the sympathies, by fortifying the will, it enables us to control, not society, but ourselves — a much more important thing; it prepares us to live more humanely in the present and to meet rather than to foretell the future.” ~ Carl Becker, 1873-1945
If a person or political entities goal is to create a strong centralized government which operates basically as an Oligarchy, it will become necessary to disguise those intentions. The best disguise for an Oligarchy is to clothe that form of government with the costume of a Democracy. But, in order to have the masses actually believe they are involved in their own governance, any comprehensive study of history must be perverted or abandoned altogether.
For any government to transform from a government operating with the consent of the governed to a tyrannical and oppressive government directed and controlled by the powerful few, two elements must be created and developed within the governed populace. These elements, though different in composition, must be complimentary in nature. Continue reading
How many of you, (and be honest), when you go to vote know little to nothing about the candidates you are casting your vote for? How many of you just look to see if there is an R or a D next to their name and vote for the candidates belonging to the same political party you do? Is that a fair assessment of how extensively you check a candidate out before electing them to office? Although there probably are exceptions to this rule, I would bet that this is how most people vote. Sure, there may be some who watch the campaign ads and the debates to help them formulate an opinion among candidates of the same party, but I would venture to guess that there are very few who do any kind of extensive research on candidates from the ‘other’ party, or their own party for that matter.

What is the point of no return? What could possibly happen to an individual that would cause them to abandon all sense of order and seek instead violent and deadly revenge against another human being or group of people, many of whom are unknown to the perpetrator(s) of violence? Is this human action a devotion to some fanatical practice of religion or simply a reaction to violent stimuli?
If religious fanaticism is the answer, is it possible such religious fervor exhibited in the acts of the “terrorist” creates in its opponent an overwhelming desire to abandon their professed religion? If we are truly fighting a war against radical Islam, is it OK to abandon the tenets of Christianity, a faith professed by the great majority of the so-called conservatives who support the perpetual war for peace paradigm of our government? If that has actually occurred, have the radical terrorists not already won the war? What else could constitute acceptance of the deaths of hundreds of thousands; many of them civilians, to prosecute wars we know are based on lies hatched in the halls of our own government and nurtured to maturity by a state owned and controlled media?

The world is being torched and destroyed by Islam __ the Mother of all totalitarianisms __ and its Koran, the precursor to Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’ and “Judenrein”. No matter the terms “moderate” or “extremist”, wherever one looks today, from Niger and the recent burning of seven Christian churches, the Yemeni government’s collapse, seventeen murders in Paris and Christian genocides in Iraq and Syria, Islam is found at the heartless center of these atrocities, as its leaders have stubbornly refused to modify, humanize and reform Islam and reconcile Islam with the modern, civilized world. And the world must not allow Islam to persist. Continue reading
The U.S. Government has been caught conducting an insane amount of vile, inhumane and grisly experiments on humans without their consent and often without their knowledge. So in light of recent news of the U.S. infecting Guatemalans with STDs, here are the 13 most evil, for lack of a better word, cases of human-testing as conducted by the United States of America.
Get ready to become one of those conspiracy theory nuts, because after this list, you will never fully trust your government again. Continue reading
It has been impossible to watch any kind of *news program* today without being bombarded with coverage of the B.S. of last night out of WDC.
From what I have been hearing there was enough fertilizer sprayed out of Barracula’s mouth to fertilize every farmers field in this nation.
While farming fields need fertilizer – it is a fact when too much is applied it kills the crop being fertilized. – Granny
Let me be perfectly clear from the jump: It was a fine speech, one of the best of President Obama’s political career, which makes it automatically one of the best in the State of the Union’s august history. The last fifteen minutes, in particular, were absolutely soaring, not just in rhetoric, but in the delivery as well. The man parked it as deep as it can be parked, like a majestic David Ortiz line drive deep into the bleachers at Fenway, thanks for coming, turn out the lights when you leave. No one does it better than Barack Obama when the bright lights are on.
…and when it was over, my immediate thought was of Steven the Irishman, the self-declared madman from the film Braveheart. Mel Gibson had just given his rousing speech to keep the Scots from fleeing before the battle at Stirling Bridge.
“Fine speech,” said Steven. “Now what do we do?“
Indeed! (Read Complete Editorial)
“If’n iss FREE – muss be fo’ ME!”
… Obama’s proposal for “free” community college should excite me, as a community college professor who works daily with those students perched precariously on the outermost edge of higher education – undocumented immigrants, high school drop-outs, homeless teens, former prisoners – all arriving to campus striving for the safety, security and affluence of middle-class American life. And while students hold on tight to the edge of the ivory tower, I’ve seen many fall off despite their best efforts, passion and potential, dragged down and out of the classroom by the gravity of this poverty. And these are just the students that show up to class – all too many can’t even get a fingerhold, as they are so bogged down by just trying to make ends meet that coming to an “open-access” community college isn’t a plausible option.
It wasn’t always this way. In 1960, California’s master plan for higher education – which soon became the model for the country – sought to provide a world-class education for all California students, not just those who could afford it. There were no fees, and all were accepted at some point in the system. For many, community college was the first stop on a journey that would take them to prosperity – financial, intellectual and democratic. And while community college is still accessible for many, the ideal of “open access” has been increasingly blocked: It’s not just the rising fees for students, but cuts that restrict access in invisible ways – fewer course offerings, fewer support services and fewer full-time instructors to help students find their way, and not fall away.
So doesn’t Obama’s proposal harken a return to the golden age of the California master plan? (Read Complete Column)

“I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” – Article II, Section 1, Constitution of the United States (1787)
For the last two weeks, my inbox has been inundated with emails priming the pump for Barack Obama’s 2015 State of the Union — a desperate attempt to avoid a repeat of the 2014 SOTU ratings bust with the lowest viewership since the Clinton years. As my colleague Peggy Noonan put it then, “No one’s really listening to [Obama] … a nonstop windup talk machine.”
The White House deluge started with this message from Joe Biden: “Most years, we keep what’s going to be in the President’s State of the Union address a secret until the night of the speech. That’s changing this year. Because the fact is that this Administration isn’t going to wait for anybody when it comes to taking whatever steps we can to help the middle class and keep strengthening our economy. [Blah, Blah, Blah, ad nauseum…]” Continue reading
Moments after being sworn in as the first president of these States United under the new Constitution, George Washington stated, “The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government, are justly considered deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.” I’m going to be blunt, does that mean anything at all to you, or as Andy Dufresne asks the warden in The Shawshank Redemption, “Are you obtuse?” In case you’re not aware, obtuse means slow to understand something.

There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
If I can dream of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can’t my dream come true…
Yesiree Bob and Bobettes – after the Holy-day known as Martin Luther King Day – we shall be “privileged” to watch the U.S. Capital SELL-ebrate another faux Holy-day – the annual State of the Dis-Union address by his Whole-i-ness Barry Soetoro – the Usurper in Chief!
Yassuh – that’s the night that politically situated guests are all invited to listen to another bore-ing (mis-spelling intentional) bunch o’ B.S. from de man ob de Century – B.O. (and man does he stink). We’ll get to see the camera pan himz lobely wife (the ‘chef’ ob de school cafeteria) probably sitting next to the likes of Michael Brown’s parents – or maybe even de self-righteous “Reberend” Al Sharptongue – hell – it might even be the Administration’s new Ambassadors to Cuba – Beyonce and Jay-Z! How come they got to go, when travel to and from Castroland was forbidden?
Hey you Pansy-ass from Chi-town – or Honolulu, or Kenya – stick that Cubano Delgado where the moon don’t shine – then stuff it in yo’ mouf and light it up!
Hey – maybe we’ll get to see some of those GITMO detainess in the audience – just before they are given an all-expense paid trip back to the land of their training, so that they can ratchet up their activities once more.
There must be peace and understanding sometime
Strong winds of promise that will blow away
All the doubt and fear
If I can dream of a warmer sun
Where hope keeps shining on everyone
Tell me why, oh why, oh why won’t that sun appear…
Of course, none of this lets the ‘merican peeps off the hook, as we are forced to watch de Supremes – wif-out Diana Ross. The Wimp-pins of the new RepublickRAT Majority, John Boner and Son-of-a-Mitch McConnell, along with their butt-buddies – the Demi-gods like Peelousy, Boxer, Feinstein, Jackson-Lee, and the one-eyed and now deposed Boxing Commissioner from Nevada. Of course there is always the Muslim Caucus (of one?), da Kingfish’s Cabinet of Politically Correct ass-kissers, including the ‘when the hell is going to really retire” Eric Holder, de Black Caucus, the women’s Caucus and it goes on and on and on…
Heaven forbid that a group of Crackers might decide to create a ‘White Caucus… someone might burn down Ferguson, MO all over again.
We’re lost in a cloud
With too much rain
We’re trapped in a world
That’s troubled with pain
But as long as a man
Has the strength to dream
He can redeem his soul and fly…
Well – de point of this rant, is that Washington, DeCeit will be full of every form of crook, criminal, Democrat, Republican, race-baiter, liar, cheat, Bankster (but I repeat myself) and pedophile known to mankind. As relates to these characters redeeming their souls – none of them have one. There ain’t a redeeming quality amongst them.
Deep in my heart there’s a trembling question
Still I am sure that the answer gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark, there’s a beckoning candle…
If dreams could come true, by midway through the Emperor’s annual B.S.-fest – the entire Capitol would look like the image below – Oh – and sorry Elvis.
And while I can think, while I can talk
While I can stand, while I can walk
While I can dream, please let my dream
Come true, right now
Let it come true right now!!!!
Without Apology, I am…
