Truth is Sin…

According to a 19th century legend, the Truth and the Lie meet one day. The Lie says to the Truth: “It’s a marvelous day today!” The Truth looks up to the skies and sighs, for the day was really beautiful. They spend a lot of time together, ultimately arriving beside a well. The Lie tells the Truth: “The water is very nice, let’s take a bath together!

The Truth coming out of the well ~ Jean-Léon Gérôme, 1896.

The Truth, once again suspicious, tests the water and discovers that it indeed is very nice. They undress and start bathing. Suddenly, the Lie comes out of the water, puts on the clothes of the Truth and runs away. The furious Truth comes out of the well and runs everywhere to find the Lie and to get her clothes back. The World, seeing the Truth naked, turns its gaze away, with contempt and rage.

The poor Truth returns to the well and disappears forever, hiding therein, its shame.

Since then, the Lie travels around the world, dressed as the Truth, satisfying the needs of society, because, the World, in any case, harbors no wish at all to meet the naked Truth.

32¢ on the Dollar and Getting Screwed Faaaaaast!

Originally published on the Federal Observer, April 21, 2009. Maybe it’s coming ’round again. ~ J.B.

April 21, 2009 – You spend your entire adult life living life the right way. You buy a car on ‘time’, you pay your debt. You get retail store credit cards, such as JC Penney, Sears, Best Buy, etc – you pay your bills on time or before they are due.

You purchase your first home in 1972, another in the Spring of ’76, sell it and buy another in the Fall of the same year. In ’79 your daughter is born, you pay the bill to the hospital because you have no insurance and you buy another house, and then another in ’80 and ’85, move to the Valley of the Scum in ’’90 and buy another house, and another in 2003, sell it in 21 months and make a killing, and buy another in 2005.

BURNING Free Speech

The authoritarian left continues to shut down free speech and they’re getting away with it.

Their latest victim, ‘Roosh,’ sold his books for years on Amazon. His books mostly proffered advice about picking up girls. It’s an unsavory subject to many—especially feminists—but it’s his free speech and he wasn’t advising anything illegal. Bezos suddenly pulled the plug on Roosh’s books—many which were selling well. Who’s next? Conservative cartoonist books because the content offends the left? Continue reading

Dems Lie About Kavanaugh for Midterm Gain

Their cynical and deceptive strategy is all about duping women voters in November.

Following the Senate hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh last week, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-2020) released a heavily edited video of Kavanaugh wherein she claimed that his response to a question was “a dog whistle for going after birth control.” However, Harris’s allegation was so clearly manipulated and inaccurate that even the leftist Washington Post and Politifact rated her claim as false. But that didn’t stop Hillary Clinton from parroting Harris’s lie. Continue reading

There Is No Such Thing As Peaceful Socialism

Radical, revolutionary socialism has gotten all the attention. Throughout the twentieth century, new socialist and communist nations were formed, arising often from violent revolution, and many more that resulted in tremendous upheaval, violence, and mass murder. The idea is that the proletariat class, the worker, is the oppressed class. The only way to change that is to revolt and replace the oppressors with government of the proletariat, because the ruling class will not willingly give up power, and without violent overthrow, they will squash the revolution and remain the oppressors.

Guarding Against Socialists and Socialism in America

Author’s NOTE: We Americans who cherish our democratic republic and economic system of capitalism recently received a significant wake-up call in the form of 1) the primary elections of socialists Andrew Gillum in Florida and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York, and 2) the rising support for socialism among many millions of young potential voters of the Millennial generation. With this growing support for socialism, one should be concerned about the kind of candidates who could possibly win the presidency and control of Congress in future elections. The following discussion addresses the above issues and offers a strategy to hopefully ensure that America will continue as a democratic republic supported by a vibrant economy based on capitalism. The strategy requires an innovative use of the Constitution to guard against the many pitfalls and problems caused by socialism. ~ PSG
