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
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
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
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
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
“It seems that under the overwhelming impact of rising power, humans are deprived of their inner independence and, more or less consciously, give up establishing an autonomous position toward the emerging circumstances.
The fact that the stupid person is often stubborn must not blind us to the fact that he is not independent. In conversation with him, one virtually feels that one is dealing not at all with him as a person, but with slogans, catchwords, and the like that have taken possession of him.
He is under a spell, blinded, misused, and abused in his very being. Having thus become a mindless tool, the stupid person will also be capable of any evil and at the same time incapable of seeing that it is evil. This is where the danger of diabolical misuse lurks, for it is this that can once and for all destroy human beings.” ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters and Papers From Prison
Well, I can also defecate on the table before I leave…
The phraseology that Obama has used, repeatedly, concerning the claim of Russian hacking, is that …
“Russia took actions intended to interfere with the U.S. election process.”
But what does that mean? They hacked voting machines? They hacked state election websites? What, specifically, does that mean? Continue reading
Flushing Obama’s Legacy Down the Toilet
America’s experiment in banana republic socialism by making a Moslem leader of the Free World is bearing the fruit it deserves. Obama’s legacy of stifling the American economy, shutting down American energy, unleashing criminals on police, and empowering America’s enemies to war and invade America and her allies is his legacy. This is a legacy Obama intends on preserving by forming a shadow government to be a black hole that sucks up the light of Trump’s revival. Continue reading
As America, and all of the Christians around the world take the time to stop the wild and crazy day to day hustle and bustle, may each of us Remember the true meaning that God has given us this day.
It has always been easy to say the True meaning of Christmas is not a little chubby elf with a beard white as snow, nor a tree of glimmering lights, or baubles of Christmases past, but it is much harder to actually give the true Gift of the season.It is always easy to give love, tolerance, and mistletoe to the ones we love, but God did not just share with believers, he shared with the non-believers, the soldiers, and the Kings. Continue reading
The Death of Civilization
I used to wonder how civilizations die.
Oh, sometimes a small civilization is destroyed by the armies of a bigger and more powerful civilization. There’s not much mystery there.
But how do great and powerful civilizations die? What happened to the Roman Empire? To the Spanish Empire? To the British Empire? It’s no answer then to say that they were beaten by enemy armies. How did they get weak enough to be beaten? Continue reading
The Trump Administration will be able to “flip the switch” on federal funding to the nation’s top-ten sanctuary jurisdictions on day one, says U.S. Representative John Culberson (R-TX).
Speaking to a group of supporters in Houston this week, Culberson said existing law allows the Trump Administration to not only stop future funding to these jurisdictions, but actually take back past funding. Culberson, who chairs the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, and Science, said he has briefed members of the Trump transition team about the report from the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Office of Inspector General (OIG) that details the defunding process. Continue reading
Much like the Titanic that sank on April 15, 1912, the United States stands at a critical juncture in the history of our nation. Few realize it, but, like the Titanic, this nation smashed into a piece of legislation in 1965 that was never asked for or approved by the American public.
In 1965, our ‘Captain’ Lyndon B. Johnson along with helmsman Senator Teddy Kennedy, Jacob Javitz and Howard Metzenbaum drove America into an iceberg of massive, unrestricted immigration that opened up the flood gates with the “Immigration Reform Act.” At first, the flow of one million immigrants annually wasn’t noticed. We were benevolent. We lived in a big country with only 194,000,000 (million) people. We enjoyed plenty of room and resources, however… Continue reading
I do not know what people think transpired between September 1787, when the finalized constitution was voted upon by the convention, and March of 1789 when it went into effect. All I know is what I have read about that period in American History, and what I’ve read shows me that there were serious doubts by some fervent patriots about the wisdom of adopting the form of government outlined by the Constitution.
Back then it was a momentous decision; choosing whether to replace their confederation with a stronger, more centralized government. But to understand all that transpired during that period one must go back; way back in history to understand the history of man himself.
I know that some of those who read my articles do not believe in the Bible, and therefore any mention of what it contains will cause them to immediately reject anything I say. That is unfortunate; but I accept that and must continue as my heart dictates. Continue reading
Most every child at one time or another has had his feelings hurt, This last sentence probably was offensive to some little girl who noticed I said his instead of her.
This concrete observation was at one time explained as convention to use one pronoun to include both genders. Then this explanation got lost because a loud noise was made ( as distinguished from a sound argument ) giving weight to a child’s cry on intolerance to the adult’s explanation of why we use one gender ( for economy ) and when this convention is known and understood it is not a slight of anyone. I am offended that this convention has been dropped and my feelings have been hurt but since I don’t get enough press, I suffer. Continue reading
When President Reagan took office in 1980, he promised to reduce the number of federal agencies and rules. Eight years later, his Presidential Task Force on Regulatory Relief failed to eliminate a single agency or even one of the thousands of federal regulations.
Today, President-elect Trump has promised to stop HUD’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing and reduce all regulations by 70%.
Unfortunately, it cannot be done with a “phone and a pen.” Continue reading
I have the distinguished honor of being a member of the Committee to raise $50,000,000 for a monument to Hillary R. Clinton. We originally wanted to put her on Mt. Rushmore until we discovered there was not enough room for her two faces.
We then decided to erect a statue of Hillary in the Washington, D.C. Hall of Fame. We were in a quandary as to where the statue should be placed. It was not proper to place it beside the statue of George Washington, who never told a lie, or beside Barack Hussein Obama, who never told the truth, since Hillary could never tell the difference. Continue reading
What is Money?
What is money? Really. It’s a token, receipt or an electronic note we get or give for some thing or some doing. It’s a convenient marker to interchange value.
Oh, and it’s also the most powerful WMD ever been used against us, for centuries.
A small group knows lots about money but they don’t want us to know what it is or how to use it to prosper because they are the ones who have been using it against us.
Maybe it has crossed your mind that something is wrong with money; that it’s not working right; that maybe the whole monetary system is broken; that “economics” is just being used to justify money failures; that maybe banks get richer because we get poorer. Mostly we ignore it because it’s there. Hmm? Continue reading
The typical homeschool mom has been told this: “Beware of online education. Computers are bad!”
This is the sales pitch of homeschool curriculum producers that did not see what the Khan Academy would do to education. They do not know how to respond. They have “bet the farm” on Gutenberg, not video-based education. They are going to lose this bet.
So are the children of the mothers who stick with textbooks.
Homeschool moms are as blind to what makes for advanced education as are the members of the public school teachers’ union. They also use textbooks.
UPPER DIVISION UNIVERSITY COURSES
Here is what homeschool moms never do. They do not look at the reading lists of any upper-division college course in the social sciences and humanities. They would find that there are no textbooks. There are monographs. There are primary source documents. There are journal articles. There are classic modern books in the discipline. But there are no textbooks.
Why not? Because upper division courses are taught by senior professors, not low-paid assistant professors who are assigned the freshman courses. Textbooks are for freshmen, not upper division students. Upper division courses are designed for students who have gone through the grunt-work, “weed-them-out” freshman course. They are ready for serious work. Continue reading
There has been a common misconception about the nature of American political spectrum. In a naive man’s view, the American electorate is like a coin with its two opposing sides, the Left and the Right. At times of elections, one of the two sides of the coin ends up on the top and the respective party prevails, just like in a football game when one team wins and another loses. After the game, the teams and their fans go home and life returns to normal until the rematch during which the losing side has a chance to recover its loss. That familiar pattern, typical for sportsmen-like competitions, is supposed to describe the American elections, according to the said misconception. Continue reading
From the early Middle Ages until just a few decades ago, every educated person had to study the history of Greece and Rome. There’s a reason for that, and there’s a reason why it’s a shame we no longer do so.
It’s not just that history holds important lessons. It’s that we live in a time built by dead men who preceded us. America is a constitutional republic. Its governing institutions were imagined and bequeathed to us by a number of men, and all those men studied the history of Greece and Rome, as did the philosophers and writers and statesmen they took inspiration from, and those that these men took inspiration from. This democracy we live in is like a piece of foreign machinery we are supposed to operate. If you’re not a mechanic, you wouldn’t try to fix your car without first trying to read some sort of instructions. In order to understand how our republic works, we need to understand the thoughts of the people who built it. We have to understand where they were coming from. Continue reading
This day started out pretty much as any other. My aging father walked to the end of the driveway in his pajamas and bathrobe to retrieve the daily big city newspaper delivered 120 miles from city center to my parents’ house at great expense and for no real reason. Most of the content in the Dallas Morning News is not really relevant to those of us here in the sleepy little East Texas town of Kilgore – except for sports news about the Cowboys, Aggies, or Longhorns. Mom and Dad have never really embraced anything ending in “dot com” as a source for relevant or accurate information. Continue reading
Dear President-elect Trump:
Aware Americans want the federal government out of our healthcare, out of our schools and away from our property rights and community rule.
President-elect Trump, we are tired of politicians’ lies. That is why we voted you into office.
The Nazis did not coax Jews into boxcars by telling them they were going to gas chambers. They told them they were meeting their families and would soon be freed.
Hitler seduced Germans into passively accepting his abominations by plying them with food stamps, free healthcare, and free college. He provided government jobs repairing the infrastructure, preached the dangers of cigarettes and the value of organic farming. Continue reading
