Daniel Hannan - Obama is Not The Leader of Free World

For they who are not familiar with British author and politician  Danial Hannan, Wikipedia provides a very good summary of his career, his outlook, and his positions.

This is Mr. Hanna's blog:

Mr. Hannan is one of the precious few European leaders who have spoken out against the gradual yet steady assumption of de facto legislative authority of the European Union and the loss of national sovereignty that follows. As a man who has a great appreciation for the contributions of his nation to Liberty, he has warned Americans (his appreciation for our system is also notable), that we are not only moving in the same direction that has so harmed his nation, but are starting to catch up.

I find that his views on the common bond that all of the daughter-nations of the UK (which of course includes the US) have between themselves and the mother country, is reminiscent of those of Winston Churchill. The latter - probably the greatest statesman ever to come out of the Angloshpere, provided in his History of the English Speaking Peoples virtually air-tight arguments that our common history and culture leave us with little choice but to work together to preserve the Freedoms that were forged in his nation (and so well protected in ours). Churchill could take almost any event or personality in US history and find the origin of the motivations that contributed to that event or mindset in the history of his island.

Recently, Mr. Hannan again made a strong yet quite accurate observation about Barack Obama:

"British Member of European Parliament Daniel Hannan isn’t afraid to say it: Barack Obama is not the leader of the free world.

The conservative lawmaker made the surprising statement in an interview with Blaze Books about his newly released work, “Inventing Freedom: How the English-Speaking Peoples Made the Modern World“.
[I just purchased this book] In the book, Hannan makes the case that Anglosphere values and institutions such as individual liberty, religious freedom, representative government and property rights are exceptional and taken together represent a system superior to those of all other cultures.

“I’d have to say that we’re [the U.K.] in worse shape – although we are now pulling back, while you, dear cousins, hurry to overtake us,” he said in response to a question on the state of the U.S. “Frankly, though, neither the U.S. nor the U.K. is an especially good advertisement for Anglosphere values these days. Canadians are doing better than either of us, Australians better yet. Their prime ministers, Stephen Harper and Tony Abbott, are the true leaders of the free world."......."

Since at least the 1960's, textbooks have been written largely or entirely by Leftists. As a consequence of this failure of the People to prevent this, some of the greatest accomplishments of our Western ancestors in the cause of Liberty have been shamelessly marginalized. The expulsion of the Tarquins and the establishment of the Roman Republic, for examplehas since then been rewritten to be merely a move by aristocrats to gain power at the expense of a king and the commoners. The exact same thing has been done over and over with the Magna Carta. Mr. Hannan destroys that weak and patently false interpretation of history in this speech:

Article V Conventions Get Some Serious Discussion at State Level

I would not go so far to call this momentum, but I think that it is a good start:

Firstly, I will re-post excerpts from my original post on the proposed Article V conventions:

"Author, attorney, Constitutional scholar, and radio show host Mark Levin has voiced his support for an amendment process that gas been glossed over by most. Many Conservatives are understandably reluctant to support a Constitutional Convention as what occurs in such a forum could well turn out disastrously, with Leftist delegates running amok and creating a what would amount to a national government that is more unrecognizable than what we have before our eyes today. (For example, a unicameral legislature, an Executive who is elected by a parliamentary system, and the excising of equal representation of all states such as what we have in the Senate) Mr. Levin, however, after careful consideration of the provisions of Article V, states that it is time to have the individual states take upon themselves the power delegated to them under that article.

*[The link to the book in which Mr.Levin makes his arguments on this proposal is at the bottom of the page]

Our contributor Cincinnatus, for the record, beat Mr. Levin to the punch by at least four months in a conversation with me last winter - I will swear to it.

"Article V

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate."

Mr. Levin rightfully notes that, two-thirds of the states make this move, and the proposed amendment(s) are passed by three quarters of the states, then Congress, The Supreme Court, and and President would literally be powerless to prevent them from being added to our Constitution and by extension becoming the Law of of the land.

In the Western Free Press link [In the link at top] , Levin speaks in an embedded video. He stresses that George Mason, (Note that Mason was by no means a supporter of the Constitution when it was a new and unratified document as he feared its potential for abuse), was indeed a strong supporter of this alternative means by which the states could work together to restrain or correct a national government (Ours is only Federal in name - credit Tocqueville for that observation) and take steps to put the nation back on the right path."

With the specter of adding 10,000,000-plus new Democratic voters (that's generously allowing for a couple of million illegals to vote for Conservatives), tens of thousands of new Leftists being molded in our universities every year, ever-increasing numbers Americans living their whole lives on the pubic dole, and an electorate that has largely given up facing our Republic, I hold that this specific type of Constitutional Convention is the last hope for the US if we are to preserve what this nation is, avoid the slavery of Socialism, and avert a full political break with the Leftist elements that exist among us. 

As I wrote up top, here is some good news:

"State legislators from across the country will soon be gathering in northern Virginia to discuss the possibility of amending the U.S. Constitution. Some legislators in Idaho report that they’re aware of increased discussion about such an undertaking.

“I definitely heard about this idea, yes,” said Rep. Steven Harris, R-Meridian. Harris told that he frequently receives email from constituents, many of whom reference “The Liberty Amendments,” a book from author and constitutional scholar Mark Levin. “People seem to be motivated by the book, but I get plenty of messages in all directions on this issue. Some that favor, and others that oppose the idea of amending the U.S. Constitution.”

Levin’s book details a specific section of the U.S. Constitution that he believes puts a check on big government. Article V provides two paths to amending the Constitution. One is through two-thirds of both chambers of the U.S. Congress, followed by ratification by three-fourths of the states. The other begins at the state level, where two-thirds of all the legislatures ask Congress to call “a convention for proposing amendments.”
In the latter scenario, states would send delegates to this convention to propose amendments to the Constitution. Then, three-fourths of the states would have to ratify any amendments approved by the convention, either by a vote of the legislatures or through special ratifying conventions.
As a precursor to a “convention for proposing amendments,” Wisconsin state Rep. Chris Kapenga, R-Delafield, has undertaken the task of organizing a meeting of state legislators from across the nation for next weekend.

“On Dec. 7, we’ll be gathering at Mount Vernon, the home of President George Washington,” he explained, adding his intent for next month’s meeting is to “start a movement of the states that would give voters hope that the government still gets its power from them, and not the other way around.”......

Rep. Grant Burgoyne, D-Boise, told that he likes the idea of amending the U.S. Constitution, but not for the reasons that Kapenga suggests. “The dysfunction of the federal government is now so complete that our country faces some significant and very real dangers. For this reason I have come to favor an Article V constitutional convention.”....."

Happy Thanksgiving

I hope that all readers had a very Happy Thanksgiving. I give thanks to God for his blessings and bounty. I also offer my thanks to our elder cousins in the UK, without whom there would never have arisen a nation with such a wonderful system of Liberty, good order, and a government that is - by its very nature, held in check by a constitution; one that has its origins on your island.

"By the President of the United States of America.

A Proclamation.

The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle or the ship; the axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consiousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the Unites States the Eighty-eighth.

By the President: Abraham Lincoln"

Marxist Professor - Whites Should Commit Suicide

Added 11/28/13 - One should take note of the tremendous amount of recent anti-white propaganda that is gift-wrapped as merely anti-Anglo-Celt. It was this broad group that was most responsible for spreading Liberty throughout the world and is the main target of the Left for precisely that very reason.  In one recent work on the Alamo (can't recall the name) in which the author jumps though flaming hoops to paint a false/weak picture of a bunch of cowardly and purely rapacious Texians, Mexican are really nice, German settlers are given a pass, while the Anglo-Celts are definitely portrayed as the yellow-bellied bad guys.

Also, Paul Weston's newest video should also be viewed. I just got it today:
Main post-

Unfortunately, the search bar on this blog page has been inoperable for over a week, so previous posts are difficult to access for now.

As I had not heard of this particular professor until I read the article below, I had to put my first impression aside for a moment and admit that his rantings could have been satire. A quick Wikipedia check put that shred of doubt to rest.  (as I first thought - he is a Communist)

-From the first link:

"If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can a white male do? He’s good for nothing. Slavery, genocides against aboriginal peoples and massive land confiscation, the inquisition, the holocaust, white males are all to blame! You maintain your white male privilege only by oppressing, discriminating against and enslaving others!”......................."

One must keep in mind that all references to marginalizing and destroying whites (especially males) have their origins in Cultural Marxism. The system envisioned and began by Georg Lukaks, Antonio, Gramsci and those of the Frankfurt School had a specific purpose - to prepare the West for creeping Socialism. That system later made its way to the US via the conduit of Columbia University.

Confounded by the fact that the proletariat did not rise up against their masters in WWI, European Marxists soon realized that the foundations of Western Culture had to be dismantled in order to pave the way for worldwide Marxism. When a radical author, professor, or other nasty individual  writes or speaks against Christianity, Judaism (including trying to argue that Hebrews were never in Egypt), or any aspect of Western history, the material that he uses ( as well as his motivation)  is likely taken out of the same playbook that all Progressives/Marxists employ.

The claims that these people take, that white Europeans have no culture, that they are the primary dispensers of wholesale violence and robbery of land and wealth, etc, cannot be defended when compared to the light of history, but that is not the point as they who make these claims don't worry about being proven wrong; Their claims are designed to convince, or at least bully into silence, students who have been taught almost nothing about Western history; which itself is a purposeful omission by the Left. It is a system that does work to some extent - keep them woefully ignorant as kids, then subject them to a barrage of fictitious (or grossly exaggerated) and hateful claims so that they are ashamed to have any appreciation of their cultural origins.

Another point to keep in mind is that, like the wild claims made by Fundamentalist Christians about events in the history of Christianity (specifically that of Catholicism), every false claim would take entire paragraphs or pages (including citations) to refute, Marxists rely on the fact that, even when someone does invest the time and effort to refute the accusation, that work will never be seen by the original targets. So, when Noel Ignatiev claims that the Pilgrims gave blankets taken from smallpox victims to kill off the neighboring Native Americans,  his students will likely never hear the truth; just as the Fundamentalist sitting in his Church will think that the Catholic Church was created by the Emporer Constantine.

It is not hard to see that the whites who make these claims have no intention of subjecting themselves to the same penalties that they demand for other whites. As with population control proponents (also of Marxist origin) who revel in asserting that people should do the world a favor and end their lives to reduce the amount of the living - but won't do the deed themselves, filth-minded individuals such as Noel Ignatiev act as if, due to their work against whites (and "overpopulation"), they deserve a permanent voluntary Sonderkommando-type "pass".

Now, for the report on how his claims were received by his compliant students:

"....The Professor however, reported receiving “a standing ovation” from his “largely white and middle class students....."

We are fast approaching the point when a political break with the Leftist elements that operate in this republic will be very difficult do accomplish without widespread violence. I hold that the People need to accept that such a break is our only viable option. We could have to ability to teach an accurate version of history rather than Marxist sophistry, to name one tangible benefit. If we continue to allow things to go as they have, we will lose another generation of Americans to Marxist-induced ignorance. Training the young people to despise the work of their ancestors is the most effective means of getting this job done. 

The key target of the Left is the Anglo-American sphere. It is that entity that has been far and away the greatest contributor to the concept of Liberty and free Peoples. If that world can be dismantled - and the progress in that endeavor is substantial, there will be nothing to stop the implementation of worldwide Marxism.

I recently purchased this book by British politician and author Daniel Hannan. In it he successfully argues that it was in England that seed of freedom was own and successfully cultivated like in no other nation. 

Here's one that will put to rest the myth that the Native Americans were just a bunch of innocent guys who lived solely in communion with nature as mild hunter-gatherers prior to the arrival of Europeans:

SCOTUS Orders Obama Administration to Answer in Homeschooling Case

This post is a follow- up to a story that has been ongoing since March of this year. These were the first three posts:

"The Romeike family that is facing deportation to Germany was interviewed by Glenn Beck. This family fled Germany after realizing that they effectively had no rights in the Fatherland. Homeschooling is prohibited in Germany. Children are required to attend public schools, with all of the Leftist curricula that goes along with that. Faced with the possible loss of custody of their kids without even the benefit of a hearing, they made it to the US, where they were granted asylum.

That's where The Department of Homeland Security, what may be turning into the core of Obama's Civilian Security Force, came into the picture. No doubt acting under orders from the administration, DHS has claimed that homeschooling is not a right and that the original grant of asylum was a mistake...."

"The Romeike family, although clearly terribly wronged by The White House and by our courts, is only a pawn in yet another soft totalitarian scheme of the Obama administration. Originally granted asylum by an immigration court, the White House, eager to earn a win by Case Law that would declare that home schooling is not a right, appealed the ruling and the Romeike's lost in Immigration Appellate Court. That ruling was in turn appealed by the Romeike family. That is how the Sixth Circuit Court got the case.

The reasons that the court gave for their ruling are extraordinarily weak - the ruling can be read in an embedded file on the top link. It seems to have stopped short of declaring definitively that homeschooling is not a right, but the fact that it was not addressed does not make this pill any easier to swallow......"

Main post:

Germany does not allow parents to educate their children at home. This extraordinary overreach of governmental authority - and a clear violation of the Natural Law,  is something that makes Leftists such as Obama and Co. envious to the point of sheer exasperation.

Why can't we do that here? It would solve all of our problems.

It is they who command the content of the material that is utilized to propagandize our children in schools. Children of parents who are able to make the sacrifice that shields them from such mind-control are a threat to the Left. Advocates of systems that defy all logic and the Natural Rights of mankind cannot allow people to be free of the only means of forcing people to conform.

Obama wants this one - and badly so. If SCOTUS decides not to grant a writ of certiorari  and declines to hear this case, or if they do hear the arguments and rule in favor of the state, we will see a torrent of laws and regulations that will  make home schooling in the US virtually impossible to do. A refusal to hear the case or a ruling that effectively declares that there is no Constitutional right to educated your own children will be the signal for the Left to crush any resistance.

The only option - and obligation, left at that point will be to defy the State.

"The U.S. Supreme Court has ordered the Obama administration to respond to a petition by the Home School Legal Defense Association to hear an appeal in the Romeikes deportation case.

The Obama administration has sought to deport the Romeikes, a German family that fled from to the United States to protect their right to homeschool. If they had stayed in Germany, they risked fines or having their children taken from them, as recently happened with another homeschooling family in Germany.

An appeals court agreed with the administration, which argued that the freedom to determine the education of one's children isnot a fundamental right. The administration also agreed with a German court's argument that banning homeschooling teaches tolerance of diverse views. HSLDA petitioned the Supreme Court to review that appeals court decision.

The fact that the Supreme Court wants the administration to weigh in on the petition increases the likelihood that it will hear the case, but it is no guarantee.......

"Germany's treatment of homeschoolers violates its international treaty obligations and human rights standards that establish the primary role of parents – versus governments – in selecting the kind of education their children should receive. German policy makers need to update their laws to respect these international human rights and protect basic freedom in education. HSLDA is working with German homeschooling advocates and others to achieve this goal," said Mike Donnelly, HSLDA's director for international affairs."

Golf Sponsor Spews Anti-Christian, Anti-Conservative Vitriol

I have noted on numerous occasions that they who are out to destroy our nation and the foundations on which it was built will resort to projecting their faults onto their opponents. It is often their first choice of action, and the more dysfunctional that they are, the more vicious their projections will be. When their own positions betray a lack of intelligence or basic common sense, the accusations used in the projections get terribly ugly.

The enemy no longer goes through the motions of masking his intentions. Two of the main principles on which the United States was built should be taken into consideration so that the ex-sponsor's hate makes any sense to the reader:

-Conservative values (and our Founders, despite how they are portrayed by many revisionists, were extremely conservative)

 -Christian Virtue ( almost to a one, they either were practicing believers or at least noted the importance of those virtues to a society)

There are hard-core Leftists, who hate the private market, and there are Cultural Marxists. The latter still mostly believe in property, but have fallen for the propaganda - dispensed by whom? -  Marxists who have followed in the footsteps of early 20th century Communists such as George Lukaks and Antonio Gramsci. They and their cohorts realized after WWI that the only way that the West could turn Marxist was of the culture of the West was destroyed. Every piece of anti- white, European, Christian, Jewish, etc. material that you see today has its roots in Cultural Marxism.

The vicious man who dropped the golfer's sponsorship has convinced himself that  modern societies can continue in operation forever, even if we excise every last remnant of the building blocks of our civilization. He drank the Kool-Aid in college, and  not he is too proud to admit to himself that he was hoodwinked by his professors (or his parents).

"An appreciation for Glenn Beck, Ted Cruz and a well-known Bible verse appears to be the main reasons an aspiring professional golfer was abruptly cut off from his main source of income by his sponsor.

The golfer’s name is Jeff Cochran and until a few weeks ago, it appeared that he may have finally gotten the big break that would help him achieve his goal of having a shot to play on golf’s elite PGA tour. Cochran claims he was contracted in January by Virginia-based businessman Brian McMahon to help promote Nebraska Golf Card (NGC), a budding promotional operation that says it’s “designed to give golfers reduced rates and access to private clubs.”........

In late October, Cochran, his agent David Reynolds and NGC’s Brian McMahon both claim they were at a dinner and the conversation turned to Cruz. Cochran says he praised Cruz and his father, Raphael, mentioning that he had seen the elder Cruz on an episode of “The Glenn Beck Program.”

Cochran told TheBlaze that his sponsor was taken aback by this statement and was also troubled by the fact that his business associate was a fan of Beck. Following his pro-Cruz statement, Cochran said McMahon asked him, ”Would you be willing to give up our support to stand with that wackjob (Beck)?” Cochran answered “yes” and said the dinner continued without any additional tension or drama.

But the next morning, Cochran’s agent said, he received an email from NGC announcing that it was pulling all financial and product support from Cochran.

The email, a copy of which was provided to TheBlaze, demanded immediate return of all equipment and that Cochran stop using their logo as well. The initial email from McMahon to Cochran’s agent was quite specific as to the reason for the split (emphasis added):......

[The article in the link has the full text]

David, I have never had an issue with you or really Jeff for that matter, but this situation is very disturbing. I have been tolerant of his religious views and even supported his off course speaking. However, I just can’t allow my company to be associated with these radical political views. The idea that Jeff would line up with the likes of Glenn Beck or Ted Cruz or any other individual interested in destroying America [this screams projection], just isn’t something I can swallow.

Cochran and Reynolds said they immediately complied with the demand and returned the equipment, they told TheBlaze. That quick response triggered the email thank-you from McMahon shown below, but that note also contained a few parting shots (emphasis added).

I looked up the verse Jeff put on the bag [Philippians 4:17*] and had to laugh,” the email said. ”How can someone so smart be so gullible? The idea of trusting or believing that someone has control over your future is the definition of insanity. I will continue to trust people I’ve actually met and trust to help chart my course.

” I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”]

McMahon’s email continued (emphasis added): “Tell Jeff if he ever decides to relinquish these childish and uneducated views, we might be willing to renew our relationship.” He ended the email, “In me I trust, Brian.”.....

He didn’t hold back, mocking Cochran for listening to
[Glenn] Beck: “Jeff is the perfect target for someone like Beck. He believes he has been forgiven for past indiscretions by a mystical power who lives in the clouds, so why wouldn’t he be gullible (sic) enough for the Tea Baggers.”......"

Detroit Goes the Way of Constantinople.

As a result of both the never-ending Islamic conquests and the rapacity of commercial cities of Venice (and to a lesser extent Genoa), the great city founded by Constantine had lost the trade of the East. The vicious sack, theft, and liquidation of her assets that occurred during and after the Fourth Crusade only hastened the process. Even after the restoration of Byzantine rule, the hustle and bustle of business that - along with her immeasurable riches, astounded Medieval Westerners, slowed to a trickle. In her last century, the city was home to slum dwellers and the rich who lived in walled-off homes; the rest of the city had been turned into pasturage and other agricultural practices.

When the great city fell to the Ottomans in 1483, Europe no longer had the buffer state that had protected the West for so long. The Ottoman advance was only halted in the final failed siege of Vienna in 1683 - exactly and only one hundred years before Great Britain recognized the independence of the United States.

We lose our industrial power, and our resulting negative trade balance causes a steady drain of our money and jobs' - and the purchasing of our food production by the Chinese.

The similarities between the declines of both the seat of the Byzantine Empire and The Motor City are only in the actual results. The reason for the steady fall of to the two are quite different.

Unlike Constantinople, Detroit was killed from within, and our enemies are not hammering away at our gates but live among us. Unlike the slow decline of the Great City of the East, Detroit's began when she was still close to the days of her greatest achievements.

True to form, Leftists have ignored the practices and polices of the administrations that gutted a city that exemplified the industrial power of the United States. It is a move right out of their playbook; take steps to wreck the place, then blame the opposition for the failures.

It's not what we did, it's the class struggle and racism.

"Bankrupt and hemorrhaging population, the city of Detroit is banking on greener pastures to lead its rebirth.

A private company is snapping up 150 acres on the Motor City's East End -- property where more than 1,000 homes once formed a gritty neighborhood -- and turning it into what is being billed as the world's largest urban farm. Hantz Woodlands plans to start by planting trees, but hopes to raise crops and even livestock in the future, right in the midst of the once-proud city.

“We are interested with moving into different types of agriculture,” Mike Score, president of Hantz, told

“Your eyes would have a hard time absorbing the blight,” Score said. “A third of every neighborhood in Detroit has been devalued by blight on public property.

Score and local officials believe a well-run farm is the best way to stabilize the area's downward spiral, and help surrounding homes and businesses keep their property values from falling further.

Score says that once the sale is complete, his company will spend the winter clearing 15 acres to plant 15,000 trees during the first phase. They also intend to add orchards further down the line.

Not everyone is a fan of turning such a huge swath of Detroit into a farm. The proposal was met with criticism from local residents and even area agricultural groups. It squeaked by the City Council by a razor-thin margin of 5-4.

“I think there’s concern in this transaction,” said Nevin Cohen, a professor of Environmental Studies at New York's New School who has been monitoring the plan. “The city [Detroit] needs to figure out its blight problem without hurting the members of the community.”

“Replicating a community farm is not as important as addressing issues of race and class concerns -- which underlie Detroit’s problems,” he said....."

The enemies of humanity have no shame, and they will not stop.

4th Graders Get Dear Leader Propaganda

In Illinois, 10 and 11 year-olds get a heartbreaking story about how Obama struggled with his black identity and white racism.

It is reportedly in the school library and not a part of the curriculum, but it is still another frightening portent of the future; one in which the children are taught to admire- not leaders whom history has proven to have done well, but the current leader.

As illustrated by the stubborn defenses made by Howard Dean supporters after his Iowa caucus scream-fest in 2004*, we are fast devolving into a nation in which the People are being taught to like the leader rather than his actions and policies.

"A biography of President Obama being studied by at least one fourth-grade class has received criticism for glossing over negative aspects of the president, painting white voters as likely racists and highlighting the commander-in-chief’s early identity struggles by focusing on his teenage drug use.

The book, “Barack Obama,” was published by Lerner Publishing in 2010 as part of their series “History Maker Bios.” All presidents going back to Richard Nixon -- except George W. Bush -- were the subjects of similar biographies published by Lerner, which did not respond to questions from

Critics also say the new Obama book is biased, pointing to a passage that reads, “but some people said Americans weren’t ready for that much change. Sure Barack was a nice fellow, they said. But white voters would never vote for a black president.”....

Another passage of the book discusses Obama’s youthful identity crisis and drug use, which Obama himself wrote about in his own biography. One passage reads, “When Barry looked in the mirror, he saw a young black man. But he didn't know how to be black. And no one was there to teach him. He decided to act like the black characters he saw on TV. He started acting tough. He cursed. Was that what it meant to be black? As he got older, he started smoking and drinking. Was that what it meant to be black?........

Kyle Olson, founder of the conservative Education Action Group Foundation and, said that is a problem.

“I have no problem with kids learning about Barack Obama ... he’s the President of the United States," said Olson. "However, the book teaches fourth graders that white voters didn’t want to vote for black men......

Olson added that depictions of Republican presidents, by the same publisher, have had different tones.

“The George H. W. Bush book had lines about how wealthy he was, how many maids he had, all of those sorts of things,” Olson said.

Specifically, the book about the elder President Bush reads in one part:

“The Bushes had money for a cook, two maids, a chauffeur (driver), and private schools,” it reads on page 8."

Dean's scream can be seen and heard at around 1:23 on the video clip.

UK School - Attend Islam Course or the Child is Racist

The long and heavy arm of the Left extends to even the youngest among us.

"A school in England is facing backlash after it sent a letter to parents threatening to add a “racial discrimination note” to the file of any student who failed to attend a workshop about Islam. The note, the letter explained, would “remain on this file throughout their school career.”

[In the US, this is referred to as one's "permanent record".]

"The Littleton Green Community School in Staffordshire, England, quickly retracted the threat after outraged parents and the local council objected.

[The parents were also required to pay for the indoctrination]

The Telegraph provides the original Nov. 20 letter sent by the school:

Dear Parent/Carer,

As part of the National Religious Education Curriculum together with the multicultural community in which we live, it is a statutory requirement for Primary School aged children to experience and learn about different cultures.
The workshop is at Staffordshire University and will give your child the opportunity to explore other religions."

[Other religions - which means the UK - protected Islam and maybe a few others, as long as they are nor Christianity or Judaism]

"Children will be looking at religious artefacts similar to those that would be on display in a museum. they will not be partaking in any religious practices.

Refusal to allow your child to attend this trip will result in a Racial Discrimination note being attached to your child’s education record, which will remain on this file throughout their school career.
As such our expectations are that all children in years 4 and 6 attend school on Wednesday 27th November to take part in this trip.

All absences on this day will be investigated for their credibility and will only be sanctioned witha GP sick note."

The nation that gave us the vast majority of our ideals of Liberty and Constitutional government is now a police state in which the indigenous have been targeted for - firstly marginalization, then full-blown subjugation. 

Even the British royal family of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha AKA the "Windsors" have abandoned the very people who have enthusiastically supported their privileged positions. As a Catholic of Irish and Italian decent, (or "Catholik" or member of the "Popish" religion), I still feel a sense of disgust when I recall that Not-so-Bonny Prince Charlie smugly stated that he would - if he became King, drop the title "Defender of the Faith"* for the Christianity/British culture - depreciating title of "Defender of Faith". He is too cosmopolitan even to protect a tradition that goes back to Henry VIII. I smell an agreement with the Left that had to have occurred many decades ago; the royal family would support the destruction of the indigenous peoples of the UK and for that Treasonous act they would in turn be allowed to keep the trappings and benefits of the throne. 

I realize that we are only a few steps behind our elder cousins and that we are fast closing the gap, but I still feel bewilderment that a people who produced Alfred the Great, John Locke, William Blackstone, Edward Coke, William Pitt, Edmund Burke, Winston Churchill, and - probably most important of all for demonstrating a fearless determination,  John Wilkes, have for the most part accepted the lot assigned to them by the Left.

I have read much written by, and about, all of these men, and I assert that they must now be turning over in their graves. 

It's time for a resurgence - or at least a new version of "Wilkes, Liberty, and the 45" or the shorter "Wilkes and Liberty".

Islam is being assigned a place of prominence in a nation that has long had a reputation for stubbornly protecting her religious, cultural, and historical identities.   

The British historian Edward Gibbon, correctly (despite the feverish attempts of Leftists to diminish the supreme importance of this battle) noted that if Charles Martel's army had not stemmed the Islamic tide at Poitiers (Tours) in 732 AD, the following may well have been the consequence:

“Perhaps the interpretation of the Koran would now be taught in the schools of Oxford, and her pulpits might demonstrate to a circumcised people the sanctity and truth of the revelation of Mohammed.

Gibbon realized that, at that time in history, the Anglo-Saxon and native Briton/Scots kingdoms were far too disunited to be able to muster a force comparable to that of "The Hammer". If the Muslims had not experienced a decisive defeat  at or near that time, Western Europe may well have become as stagnant, permanent wasteland under Islamic domination. The Western Churches (including Mainline Protestants and later Evangelicals) would have been largely like those Orthodox churches who suffered  under centuries of depredation under Islam.

What Gibbon could not have known in the 18th century was that the elite of Britain would gladly do for the Muslims what Charles Martel and his Franks would not allow. 

Like Socialism, Islam does not recognize sovereign nations. It does not allow for the Liberty of the individual as does Christianity or Judaism. Both systems are geared towards a worldwide rule, and that is precisely why the Left has imported hordes of Muslims in order to vote in the Socialist candidates so necessary to slowly erode the sovereignty and identities of Great Britain and her peoples.   

But the People must first be beaten into submission like 12th century serfs who had rebelled against their lord. Their youngest girls must be subjected to wholesale gang rape (females can no longer even ride in taxis in the UK), they must acquiesce to school programs that extol the attributes of Islam, they must labor for the taxed income that pays for the enormous welfare payouts to the conquerors, they must sit back and do nothing while their public transportation is subjected to bombings and their soldiers are decapitated in the street, and they had better not utter a peep of protest lest they face criminal charges for the Free Speech - destroying crime of "Hate Speech".

I pray that the Fire of Liberty begins to burn again - and fiercely so, in the bosoms of the British. I fear that many in the US will not have the stomach to fight if we do not see the People of the Mother Country act first. It is from you that we learned our ways, and we will likely follow the path that you take.

One thing that I can say with certainty is that true Americans will support you, with all that implies.

God speed.

Seattle Socialist - "Workers, Take Over the Factory"

Workers of the world unite; you have nothing to lose but your chains.

-That is, until you are shackled by chains that you have made for yourselves because you were foolish enough  to buy into our drivel. 

Three days ago, I noted that Progressive and other Socialist politicians no longer have to hide their true intentions:

-and an earlier post on the same subject:

Two recently elected officials were treated in the post at top, Bill de Blasio in New York, and Kshama Sawant in Seattle. The former ran as a Democrat since that party is driven by the Left, but the latter did not even feel the need to go through the formality of employing a soft label; she ran as a Socialist and beat a Democratic incumbent for city council.

Sawant, as the sick race-baiting and capitalism-attacking quotes in the post above demonstrate, wasted no time in proclaiming her intentions. My point in that post is that our society has devolved to a point in which such patently anti-US, anti-West, and anti-Liberty positions no longer need be couched in diplo-speak.

Now, they can just come out and say what they mean. Consequently, the People can no longer affect ignorance of the very real threat to the nation - and humanity itself.  

As de Blasio was sufficiently aware of the mood of the electorate in NYC, he could state with no fear of negative consequences.. “Everything you heard about me is true. . . I am not a free-marketeer. . . I believe in the heavy hand of government,”, Sawant knows that she can move into fifth gear. Following her rants against an economic system that has fed and clothed people like never before (and liberated countless others) and anything that  does not fully subjugate whites, she unleashed on what is one of the greatest symbols of the US - and an organization that has enabled tens of thousands (with no fear of privation), to raise families and lead productive lives. Sawant would have the employees of a icon take over the means of production - something for which they risked no money themselves, so that it could be run into the ground in short order. With that object accomplished, the enslavement of the People will have been effected - by their own doing as they followed the orders of their taskmasters..  

Here is the face of the enemy, but only its face; the real enemy exists among us, happily voting for these mouthpieces. 

"Seattle’s newly elected Socialist councilwoman accused aerospace and defense giant Boeing on Monday of “economic terrorism” and told Boeing machinists they should consider taking “over the factories.”

The workers should take over the factories, and shut down Boeing’s profit-making machine,” Kshama Sawant told a group of activists in the city’s Westlake Park.

Sawant’s comments were made at a rally organized by machinists after they rejected a deal that would reduce pensions for union members in return for guaranteed jobs in Everett, Wash., building 777X Boeing airliners for eight years.

Now Boeing is considering taking those jobs elsewhere.

“That will be nothing short of economic terrorism because it’s going to devastate the state’s economy,” Sawant told the crowd.

If Boeing tries to move out, Sawant said, union workers should simply take over the Everett airplane-building factory.

She referred to this as “democratic ownership.”*"

[* Note that Marxist have taken to using terms such as Democracy to direct the People to bring themselves to ruin: ]

"........ the machines are here, the workers are here, we will do the job, we don’t need the executives. The executives don’t do the work, the machinists do,” she said.

[Who built and paid for the machines?]

She said that once workers take over the plant, they should start building things everyone can use.

[That's something that I would like to see - rebellious pirates successfully planning and executing a full re-tooling of  the plants. Sawant knows that this will be a disaster, and that is why she is calling for it. Socialists desire collapse more than anything as it sets the table for enslavement.]

We can re-tool the machines to produce mass transit like buses, instead of destructive, you know, war machines,” she told KIRO-TV....."

Here is an excerpt from the Nov 18th post linked at top:

"....I see nothing more than two utterly different nations that are diametrically opposed to each other. They will not compromise. They will make more copies of themselves in the Halls of Academia (and with the Common Core in primary schools). They will work tirelessly to bring as many like-minded individuals from nations that have no history of our system of government; nations in which concepts that gave birth to the system that made us great is foreign.

In The Decline of the West, Oswald Spengler correctly noted that the mind of the Socialist is not motivated by compassion, but control - the fierce determination to force his will onto all"

"In spite of its foreground appearances ethical socialism is not a system of compassion, humanity, peace, and kindly care, but one of will-to-power. Any other reading of it is illusory.....The Socialist wants to organize and recast it [the world] in its form and substance, to fill it with his own spirit (emphasis his)...the Socialist commands. He would have the whole world take the shape he desires...."

The American People are at a crossroads, but they fear having to admit this to themselves. Roughly half of the minds in our nation are ruined. The sooner that we begin to take steps to effect a divorce from the Leftist-run regions of the nation, the better. Each year that goes by while we ignore this unpleasant reality brings tens of thousands of new Leftists, and that is just the university-indoctrinated. The longer that we wait, the harder it will be to effect a break. The longer that we ignore the handwriting on the wall that all can read clearly, the more of the nation that will have already been lost."

-and a longer excerpt from the link following Sawant's mention of  ":Democratic ownership":

"....Keep your eyes and ears open for the language of the Occupy people.The Left has increasingly relied on utilization of the word "Democracy" to justify their intentions to abolish property rights, redistribute wealth, etc. It is a sort of hypnotic game that they are employing; keep throwing out the word Democracy when discussing things that have absolutely nothing to do with that political system until the people begin to equate your agenda with it. It seems to be one of their more recent ploys. Like many of the tactics that the Left commonly uses today, this falls within the Plan B genre; having been unable to convince Americans to sign on to their regressive agenda, they redefine a political system to mean what they want society to be. The idea is to make Marxism easier to swallow if they can wrap it up in a familiar-sounding package. As I have noted previously, Plan B also includes acts of Demagoguery such as importing massive amounts of new citizens from nations that have no tradition of Democratic or Republican governments as these types are more likely to embrace totalitarianism, whether it be its hard or soft version.

I watched this happen repeatedly in the pseudo-documentary of Mr. self-loather himself, Michael More - Capitalism, a Love Story. Especially toward the end of the movie, Mr. Moore mentioned Democracy several times, but each time it was thrown out, it was done so in its Leftist-degraded form. In the movie, Moore equated a political process (Democracy) with the demands of a portion of the population for more wealth. While at times Mr. Moore seemed to be willing to discuss things that are unacceptable to all of us, such as corporate crime and bailouts, he would continually bring these back around into his agenda of capitalism being "an evil system" and the concept of the government taking over the "means of production".

Moore even featured a movie clip of FDR that was so shocking that I absolutely thought that it was faked. In the clip, FDR outlines proposed new amendments. These all fell into the Leftist picture. The most frightening one of all was the "right of every family to a home." What FDR was advocating was that, by virtue of the successful performance of the procreative act, an individual would be entitled to a home.While we breathed a sigh of relief that FDR's demise got these proposed amendments out of the way at the time, Moore speaks of our dodging of this Leftist bullet as an unfortunate event.

What was readily apparent is that Mr. Moore, like the Occupy gentleman quoted at top, has no desire to respect Democracy but would rather apply his own sick meaning to it, tell you that that is about abolishing capitalism as opposed to protecting property, and hope that you either buy into his drivel or feel timid about possibly having to defend what Democracy actually is.

Instead of utilizing the term in the manner of its actual meaning, they mean to take the state of that system when it has reached its final form of decay, when a welfare state has broken the middle classes completely, leaving only the provided-for and the wealthy, and pretend to be under the impression that this pathetic period is what Democracy is supposed to be.

Since the inception of the LBJ-induced, Liberal-maintained, and now Obama-enforced welfare system, large blocs of the US population have effectively become part of a permanent sub-class of voters who will consistently vote for the candidate or party that promises the most financial support for little or no effort other than voting for those who are determined to keep them in bondage. Once such a standard of living becomes ingrained in the culture, the enslaved become comfortable with their fetters as long as they have to do nothing but periodically show up at the polls to cast a vote.

As this bloc grows in size, it morphs into a powerful tool for those who desire to bring everyone else under this umbrella of dysfunctional but powerful control. Since those who comprise the bloc will vote for no other candidate than their handlers, other parties too feel the need to court them. The result is a steady decline of work ethic, the migration of, as the rewards for staying out of it become perceived to outweigh the necessary efforts to do so, those of the lower and middle classes into that bloc, and the final result of what is essentially is a dreary Marxist society. If the chief executive is the same type as the current Occupant of the White House, a Fascist/Oligarchic mixture will likely be the product. With his advocating of a Civilian Security Force and his tolerance for the biggest of big businesses that are willing to cozy up to him, the latter is just as likely and possibly even more dangerous.

Since Democracy is the victim of false advertising, some clarifications of that system are in order:
"Athenian Citizenship: The idea and practice of citizenship was first thoroughly explored by the Greeks in the 'polis' or city-state. The 'polis' was local or municipal in character as well as national. It was 'not only a unit of government: it was also a club' (Barker, 1960, p. 21). Aristotle, who included influential chapters on citizenship in Politics, thought ideally citizens needed to 'know each other's character' to best exercise their duties. In the 'polis' Aristotle (1960, p. 109) considered that 'a citizen is a man who enjoys the right of sharing in deliberative or judicial office (for any period, fixed or unfixed)'. Aristotle characterised man as a zoon politikon, or political being, which has sometimes been interpreted to mean that man is a 'political animal'. Political activity was regarded as an essential part of human behaviour and that a man's full potential and personality can not be achieved without participation in the 'polis'. Citizenship offered tangible benefits such as freedom, the security to pursue 'well-being' and the opportunity to win honour by guiding and even defending the community. Citizens who neglected their civic duties in the 'polis' by not attending assemblies, voting, serving on juries and giving military service were labelled as idions, the term from which the modern word idiot is derived. Aristotle indicated that a good citizen 'must possess the knowledge and the capacity requisite for ruling as well as being ruled' (Aristotle, 1960, p. 105). The opportunity to participate in the 'polis' did not extend to all persons. Women, children, together with resident foreigners, some labourers and slaves were not citizens and were excluded from the 'privileges of rule'. In fact Aristotle was at pains to distinguish between true citizens and those who could not justly claim the title. Aristotle was even concerned that certain working men, such as mechanics, did not have the aptitude or leisure to display true excellence in citizenship qualities. Immaturity and infirmity were two further barriers to the status of citizenship. [Italics added] By law any citizen who failed to take sides in key decisions would lose his membership in the 'polis'. Citizenship was about responsibilities which had to be met rather than about rights which could be claimed."

Now that the system is summarized, we can look at an idea of who could be a citizen and vote:
Citizens, Metics, and Slaves:

"The population of Athens was made up of three distinct groups: citizens, or men who were of Athenian birth and free-born; metics, or foreigners who lived in Athens but who had no citizenship rights, and slaves

It is estimated that in 431 B.C. there were roughly 50,000 adult male citizens, 25,000 metics, and 100,000 slaves in Athens.

Metics were non-Athenians who generally found the cosmopolitan city of Athens more appealing than their own homelands. Metics could not own property, which was crippling in Athenian society, but they could hold jobs for property owners and they did have to pay a tax."

There you have it, Democracy had nothing to do with a willy-nilly system of letting everyone vote and by extension be able collude to endorse candidates who will promise the most free stuff. 50,000 voters out of the total of 175,000 hardly constitutes the mass bloc of voters who will clamor for handouts as advanced by the Left. As Alexis de Tocqueville stated in Democracy in America, Athenian Democracy was an aristocratic (His word) system in which those who could prove their Athenian birth (That refers to one's ancestors, not simply being born in Athens), that they owned property, and that they were not not slaves, could vote and hold office. Slavery was unfortunately a part of Athenian society, but we must not that these slaves were overwhelmingly ethnic whites. The free-born who could prove that their families were part of Athens from the early days and who owned property were considered to be responsible enough to have a say in their government. Note also that there was no voting for individual candidates. They had a system in which candidates from the Demes (Subdivisions of the city) for the Council of 500 and other offices were selected by lot, thereby making it very hard to promise free stuff in order to garner votes.

Speaking of Toqueville, it would be a good idea to give just a taste of what American Democracy was about in the early part of the 19th century, over two thousand years after the greatest days of Athens:

Speaking of the state of revolution and referring to how classes are affected by the spectre of such in Democracy in America Chapter XXI: Why Great Revolutions Will Become More Rare-

' Not only are the men of democracies not naturally desirous of revolutions, but they are afraid of them. All revolutions more or less threaten the tenure of property: but most of those who live in democratic countries are possessed of property- not only are they possessed of property, but the live in the condition of men who set the greatest store upon their property."

Tocqueville then briefly treats both the rich, who will likely always have financial resources left over after a revolution, and the poor, who care more for what they do not have than what they do and goes on to discuss the ensuing plight of the middle class.

"But the men who have a competency, alike removed from opulence and from penury, attach an enormous value to their possessions. As they are are still almost within the reach of poverty, they see its privations near at hand, and dread them; between poverty and themselves there is nothing but a scanty fortune, upon which they immediately fix their apprehensions and their hopes. Every day increases the interest they take in it, by the constant acres which it occasions; and they are the more attached to it by their continual exertions to increase the amount. The notion of surrendering the smallest part of it is insupportable to them, and they consider its total loss as the worst of misfortunes..........In a revolution the owners of personal property have more to fear than all others [rich and poor]; for on one hand their property is often easy to seize and on the other it may totally disappear at any moment"

So, we have ancient Athenian Democracy, which was aristocratic, and we have American Republican Democracy, where private property is also valued by the owner, who would fear its seizure in the event of a revolution.

........For now it is enough to assert that what the Left pretends to be Democracy is not that at all......

A Democratic system must, if it is going to survive, have some restrictions on who is allowed to vote. It can be a simple property or income tax qualification ( My personal favorites), a proof that one is receiving no government assistance whatsoever, or a past military service requirement. One friend of mine held that anyone who receives any government-cut check, including public employees (He was one of those) should not be allowed to vote as his interests would be in question. A reasonable age requirement that provides for an presumption of some life or work experience is also needed.

What we do know is this - a Democracy that extends the vote to all, regardless of whether or not he or she effectively and tangibly contributes to the society (Or at least does not receive benefits for free) or can demonstrate a past record of appreciable service to it, cannot survive. After a period in which the doling out of free benefits becomes ingrained, the system gets bogged down and begins its inexorable march towards tyranny. This is the "Democracy" that is being celebrated by the Left. What they call Democracy is a system that, far from protecting the rights of citizens, slowly impoverishes and enslaves them while destroying their senses of identity and cultural vigor.

Wayne Allen-Root - Obama Worked Overtime to Steal 2012 Election

His moves were not without a purpose. Knowing that the massive cancellations of private insurance policies would likely have been sufficient cause for a major backlash against him at the polls, Obama extra-legally (a common euphemism for most anything that he does) delayed the implementation of key provisions of Obamacare to ensure that the People would remain fat, dumb, and happy until the bubble burst - after the election, of course.

-and that was just one example of his pre-election moves.

".......In October of 2012, just before the election, we heard miraculous unemployment reports that made it sound like the economy was turning around. Hundreds of thousands of jobs were supposedly created. Happy days were here again. “Bravo Obama,” said the adoring mainstream media. It was the biggest one month jobs increase ever.

Surprise, surprise, guess who was right? It turns out government employees faked the jobs reports to re-elect Obama. They wanted the man who protects their bloated salaries, obscene pensions, and corrupt unions, to be re-elected. They would stop at nothing to keep the gravy train rolling, so they made up reports about job increases out of thin air.

The entire election was pure fraud. Based on fantasy. Americans walked into the voting booths hearing fresh news that indicated the economy was improving and jobs were dramatically increasing. It was all fake. The numbers were made up out of thin air by pro-Obama government employees. The voters of America made their final decisions based on pure fraud......................

Even before the election Obama knew that tens of millions of Americans would lose their health insurance. Yet he knowingly committed fraud by personally lying to the American people. Not once, but repeatedly. He didn’t just tell intentional lies to pass Obamacare, he told those same lies during his re-election campaign to deceive the American voters and get reelected.

Did Obama commit intentional fraud? Without a doubt. His own administration internal estimates were that MOST Americans covered by employer plans would lose their insurance. Obama’s own projections show that 80 percent of small businesses were doomed to lose their insurance.

But even that wasn’t enough. Still worried about his re-election chances, Obama ordered the IRS to distract, intimidate, persecute and destroy his political opposition- Tea Parties and conservative critics like me. Rather than spending time and money on stopping Obama, many conservatives were forced to waste our time, energy and money fighting IRS attacks......

The IRS attack directed by Obama effectively neutered the energy and passion of the Tea Parties, conservative fundraisers, and critics that only two years before had produced the biggest landslide since 1936. With the IRS running roughshod over Tea Parties, the energy was gone, and Obama was re-elected. Pure election fraud.

You question whether Obama ordered the IRS attacks? Well, during this exact period of IRS persecution, the head of the IRS visited the White House more than any other person. The head of the IRS employees union visited Obama the night before the IRS attacks began................
But it gets worse. The voting ballots of our military troops were suppressed. And, why do you thinkDemocrats fight so hard against voter identification?

We’ll never know how many Obama supporters voted illegally, or multiple times. We’ll never know how 59 inner city voting districts in Philadelphia wound up with 30,000 to -0- vote totals in favor of Obama. Or, similar totals in multiple districts around the country, including all-important Ohio. We’ll never know theaffect of voter intimidation by Black Panthers at Philadelphia polling places, or Democrat judges ordering GOP poll watchers out for several hours at Philadelphia polling places..................."

There is of course more in the article
I agree with the claims of the writer, but I think that it is important to note that, even if Obama had not taken the measures that he did and consequently lost the election last year, he still would have come very close to winning. Therein lies the real problem. 

The problem is not Obama, Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wassermann-Schultz, nor any other particular individual. These types would never be where they are if much of the American electorate were not already shot to pieces.

Think about the movie King Ralph, which begins with the entire British royal family setting up for a family photo. An accident with the electrical equipment causes the death of every one of them. The search for a potential surviving heir/claimant brings them to a lounge singer, played by John Goodman, in Las Vegas.

Now take that comedic scenario and apply it to the US. If each and every major Leftist politician, academician, journalist, etc, in the nation were all gathered in one location, and a large meteor landed in the midst of them, what would have been accomplished?

Very little, if anything.

We look at these people and tell ourselves that they are the problem, but they are nothing more than the societal equivalent of the pustules on one's body that result from a case of Chicken Pox. The pustules cause a terrible itch and discomfort, as well as posing a danger of infection if they are scratched, but they are not the problem.

The problem is that the body is being ravaged by a virus, one that not only his the ability to cause terrible symptoms, but also will go dormant until if can break out later in life, manifesting itself in a case of Shingles. It never leaves the body.

That is where we are.Vast swaths of our nation have been turned into viruses that will do their business until the host is eventually destroyed. These people will continue voting for candidates who will enslave them and everyone else who does not evade their grasp.

We can complain all we want and fight every fire that breaks out - be it a new Leftist program, another rabid atheist getting a Christmas display banned, an new attack on women that would require (rather than merely allowing third -grade girls to purchase these) that they have on hand abortifacients , or we can admit to ourselves that we need to effect a divorce from the other half of the nation and let them run their side(s) into the ground.

Until the People realize this, they should by all means continue the fight, but they must be willing to leave open - for serious discussion, the eventual need to work for a political recognition of the reality that already exists.

Elementary School Teacher Fed His Semen to Students

-I wanted to treat this report a few days ago, but it took that much time for me to overcome my revulsion; even reading the story required several breaks to settle down and clear my head.

The ( I am a real loss for appropriate words here) despicable acts of this individual may conceivably have gone unpunished had it not been for a photo technician at a drugstore - an individual who would normally be dismissed as uneducated and unintelligent by many in our hyper-status-conscious society. It was someone who is looked down upon by far too many who not only made note of the content of the photos submitted by the monster, but made the decision to notify the police.,0,5349556.story#axzz2l94Jd3Bp

"Mark Berndt, the teacher who committed lewd acts against nearly two dozen Los Angeles schoolchildren, was sentenced Friday to 25 years in prison after facing the parents of his victims, many of whom berated him for stealing the innocence of their children.

Berndt, who taught at Miramonte Elementary School for three decades, pleaded no contest to 23 counts of lewd conduct. The allegations against him included spoon-feeding semen to blindfolded children as part of what he purportedly called a "tasting game." He also was accused of feeding them cookies tainted with his semen and placing cockroaches on their faces.

In a downtown Los Angeles courtroom, Berndt remained silent and avoided eye contact with sobbing parents, who called him "vile" and an "animal." They said their children no longer sleep through the night, are scared of eating cookies and have lost their innocence. One said Berndt should be burned at the stake.

"Our lives have been destroyed by this.... I have been destroyed. She has been destroyed," one mother told the court. Another mother said: "I wake up every morning asking God to give me strength to explain this to my daughter."

Berndt was arrested in January 2012 after a South Bay drugstore photo technician alerted authorities to images of children blindfolded, some with tape over their mouths.
Using the more than 400 photos, authorities spent months tracking down students and conducted dozens of interviews. Ultimately, it was DNA from Berndt's saliva, and from a spoon and container with semen found in his classroom, that led to the charges...........................

Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey said the plea "spares these young victims the anguish of testifying at a trial and sends an unmistakable message to those who dare take advantage of our children that justice will prevail.".....................

With credit for time served and good behavior, Berndt could potentially be out of prison in 19 1/2 years..............."

I have to note that we must make several notes of our own:

-The culture of "do as one will" has made acts such as this increasingly commonplace - we have no fear of God nor any appreciation for his creation

-The Left has repeatedly pushed to abolish references to pedophilia as a disorder* (at bottom). Along with the dropping of that classification for other intrinsically disordered desires there is a reason for this phenomena, which will  cited by an excerpt from an extremely well-thought out post from American Thinker**. The cited article deals with pornography in general, but the point is still clear; the Left likes when we have, or make no attempt to have, any control over ourselves. That is their justification for more control by the State. The targeting of children will increase until we make some serious repairs to our society and the Left as a whole in fine with that.

-That same culture has eroded not only the sense of shame of the individual, but also the of fear of being detected. The monster could easily have purchased a photo printer (assuming that he he using a digital camera) of his own in order to print out his documentation of his basely perverted crimes, but he instead felt comfortable having his photos printed by someone else. The monster wanted to re-live the horrific acts that he perpetrated on kids who, at this time of year, are getting ready to write their letters to Santa Claus.

-  The increasing acceptance of pornography, with the added accessibility of depictions of ever-greater degrees of lewdness (tragically including those of children) on the internet, has resulted in far more individuals making the sick leap from imagining something contemptible to actually doing it.

- The internet has also made it much easier for individuals who may toy with sick fantasies to find others of the same mindset. Once someone can communicate with others who think the same way, moral reservations, possible empathy for victims, or fear of being discovered all quickly melt away.

- That the legal system has had trouble keeping up with the levels of perversion and criminality to which we are sinking is readily apparent in the sentence received for the charges to which the monster plead guilty; he got a paltry 25 years for 23 counts of Lewd Conduct. Not long ago, some states defined rape so narrowly that a man could not legally be guilty of  raping his wife. Many of those same statutes did not include definitions of sexual assault in cases of oral or anal rape. Laws that covered other sex crimes, such as the modern crime of Criminal Sexual Contact (NJ Criminal Code), left little room for police and prosecutors to find a statute that would "fit" the actual act in manner than would allow for any true justice. Of course prosecutors wanted to avoid a trial with child victim-witnesses, but I would guess that California did not have a criminal statute that dealt strictly with this type off act.

and possibly most important of all

-Criminal no longer fear family members or close friends  (or even concerned citizens) of potential victims. 

When I think of elementary school-age kids being treated in this manner, my heart breaks. That occurrence is followed by a cold rage.



".......My argument was that pornography was not merely sexually explicit media, but rather a larger machine of social control. To give free rein to the pornographic imagination, I asserted, was to empower a specific economic regime that would pervert constitutional law in order to take away people's capacity to govern themselves. While women were the most obvious victims of the Pornographic Regime, I believed that gay men would be next, and finally all men, controlled by an unfettered collective id serving the agenda of those with greatest power in society........"
