How the Turks Handle 'Diversity'

The stateless nation of Kurdistan doesn’t have a lot to offer the United States, it’s true. But President Recip Tayyip Erdoğan’s ingenious bit of population engineering should offer this stark lesson to America’s open-borders ‘woke’ class: the fallout from ethnic diversity, no matter where in the world, is always pulverizing, intractable, and inevitable.

On October 5th, when Erdoğan announced his launch of Operation Peace Spring in northeast Syria, he stated that the plan sought to “neutralize terror threats against Turkey” and “prevent the creation of a terror corridor across our southern border, and to bring peace to the area.” He was out to neutralize the Syrian branch of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK): a terrorist group in Turkey, say authorities, and one that’s killed tens of thousands there in its multi-decades-long struggle to establish a greater Kurdistan ethno-state -- 12 of the Middle East’s 30 million ethnic Kurds currently live in Turkey. Just like the Greek and Armenian minorities in Turkey in the early 19th century (before they were expelled and genocided, respectively), the Kurds are viewed as a constant source of distrust by the Turkish government and few forms of their ethnic expression are tolerated.

The October 9th military operations aimed at clearing out the Kurds from northeast Syria have since settled into a truce and Turkish troops now control a 75-mile strip of territory in the region with another section previously controlled by Syrian Kurds now being patrolled by Turkish and Russian soldiers together.

Operation Peace Spring also entails returning some of the 3.5 million Syrian occupants who have been bottled up in Turkey since 2015 when Erdoğan cut a deal with Angela Merkel and the EU to halt migrants travelling through the country en route to richer places like Germany, Sweden, and Italy. The Turkish government has announced plans to spend nearly $30 billion on Syrian resettlement efforts in the region, including the building of homes and agricultural infrastructure. Currently, Syrian migrants in Turkey live mostly in tent and container cities. One hundred thousand have been returned to the region so far.

This resettlement part of Erdoğan’s plan has been wildly popular among the Turkish people. From the outset of the Syrian influx, Turks have complained about strains on local labor markets, public services, and housing capacity. Due to these, as well as cultural problems, polls show nearly three-quarters of Turks want a return to the pre-influx status quo. And largely because of this promise to return, a massive 85 percent of the Turkish population is supportive of Erdoğan’s plan.

Yet another motivation behind Operation Peace Spring, says Turkish affairs expert Ryan Gingeras in the New York Times, is that a return of Syrians into Kurdish-held Syria would create “a living, breathing demographic barrier to Kurdish autonomy.” This motivation, which the International Crisis Group’s Dareen Khalifa has also noted, would further dent Kurdish aspirations in northeast Syria by diluting their numbers and creating ethnic factions in the region.

In sum, Erdoğan’s three-pronged plan is essentially about softening inter-ethnic tension in his own country (i.e. removing Syrian occupants, dulling the Kurdish autonomy movement), while creating it where it would benefit his own power base (i.e. building up tensions in northeast Syria). Each are facets of the same age-old, cross-cultural problem of how to deal with interethnic conflict. But, while no doubt extreme, Erdoğan’s plan is not at all without precedent. Nor, on a fundamental level, is it completely far-flung from America’s own efforts in maintaining multicultural stability; efforts which, by the way, will likely increase in future. Probably dramatically so.

Conflict between ethnic groups, of course, is as old as the dirt they fight over. From the ancient story of Arminius, a German citizen of Rome who led his fellow tribesmen against the Roman army, to the ethnic breakup of the Russian, Hapsburg, and, of course, Ottoman empires, to today’s paralyzing distrust between Afghanistan’s Pashtun, Hazara, Tajiks and Uzbeks; concern over dual loyalties and ethnic civil war appear cross-culturally and across time.

So does divorce between groups locked in shotgun marriages. Just taking examples your average boomer might have watched on TV, there’s the Singaporean Chinese leaving the Malaya federation, the Czechs splitting from the Slovaks, the breakup of the Balkans, and the partitioning of Sudan. While some were bloody and some weren’t, all were predictable and for the best. Putting it in academic terms, UC Berkley sociologist Donald Horowitz once noted, “[t]he desire to extirpate diversity seems greatest in states that are among the most heterogeneous.”

Also frightfully common is the kind of ‘demographic engineering’ Erdoğan’s engaged in. Whole books have been written about the subject, covering examples of blunt population restructuring, such as China and the Soviets’ respective funneling of Han Chinese and ethnic Russians into Tibet and Estonia; to more subtle endeavors, like the UK Labor Party’s late nineties immigration increases aimed at diluting the Tory vote. If building up ethnic tensions can somehow benefit a government’s power base, it seems, ethnic tensions will be built up.

Take the Ottoman “Millet” system (roughly meaning ethnicity or nationality) that reigned up until the founding of modern Turkey. In it, minorities in the sprawling heterogeneous state were granted a limited level of autonomy and tolerance, but with an overarching Sunni establishment always keeping a firm grip on things. As part of a divide-and-conquer strategy, the Ottomans would often settle violently opposed nationalities next to each other and allow them to work only in livelihoods that depended on their hated neighbors.

Although a passing grade in junior high history and an issue or two of Foreign Policy should suffice in making the average person cognizant of the pitfalls of ethnic diversity, there’s also the area of evolutionary biology which, although some of us refuse to agree with it, we should probably defer to for safety’s sake.

Evolutionary biologists and their forerunners have long found that our differentiation and skepticism of outgroups is an ingrained tendency that inhabits us all. Building on the work of people like J.B.S. Haldane and W.D. Hamilton, Yale’s William James McGuire concluded way back in the late 1960s that “…it appears possible for specific attitudes of hostility to be transmitted genetically in such a way that hostility is directed towards strangers of one’s own species to a greater extent than toward familiars of one’s own species or toward members of other species.” In the 1970s, Harvard biologist Edward O. Wilson noted that this same transmission takes place in the animal kingdom as well. In other words, as its inherent, outgroup suspicion may have to be dealt with, not through platitudes and public service announcements, but by way of cold, hard acceptance and sober policy prescriptions.

As of late, the West in general is doing a pretty poor job at this. Take our utter lack of circumspection when it comes to our rapid move from having relatively homogenous states to quarreling heterogeneous ones. Perhaps, identity-based strife is now so commonplace in Western daily life, we’re too anaesthetized, tired, or cowed to contemplate what an acceleration of tensions could really look like. How far will conflict management in the U.S. have to go as ethnic heterogeneity barrels ahead? Thankfully, the other side’s beginning to show us.

Both the New York Times and the Washington Post recently published op-eds that, while focused solely on the extreme ends of white identity politics, essentially argued that policing tribal impulses in the U.S. and keeping a lid on intergroup provocations means we will have to narrow what’s considered acceptable public discourse and speech freedoms generally. By way of more de facto and even legal censorship, all things which spark multicultural disharmony (racial satire, “derogatory” jokes, etc.) will have to go.

Surely, this will also mean ramping up what we already do to keep the expanding non-white populace at bay i.e. revising our shared national history and heroes; multiculturalizing the workplace and social sphere; allocating jobs, school admissions, and government contracts for non-whites, etc. How far will these and other existing measures have to be increased? Will brand new, more drastic measures become necessary? Will an Erdoğanesque reorientation of things have to appear in West? We shall see.

[From "Many American Jews Need to Atone for Their Sins against Donald Trump"]

America has seen many presidents who have been good to Israel and the Jewish people. None has been better than Donald Trump. Beyond doubt, he has done unmatched and extraordinary things for Israel and has publicly spoken against anti-Semitism in the United Nations and repeatedly during his State of the Union addresses. The whole world has seen the priority Mr. Trump bestows on Israel and safety for Jews. Additionally, he and his father were tremendous friends and benefactors to Jews and Israel, much prior to his entering politics. Yet the establishment Jewish organizations and temples have too often falsely maligned him, and liberal American Jewry (about 70% of American Jewry) have been his most vocal critics. Actually, they are in the forefront against him, as often seen on television, in articles, and in speeches from non-orthodox rabbis on the pulpit. Even among regular liberal Jews, the railing against Mr. Trump is incessant, hysterical, mean, and full of hate. All of this constitutes gross, unprecedented ingratitude. Jewish Tradition frowns on ingratitude, indeed calls it a sin.

Many in the secular Jewish community do not consider their attitude ungrateful inasmuch as support for Israel is no longer important to them, and they seem undaunted when anti-Semitism comes from the political Left (their home), or from social justice warriors and certain "minorities." What they consider good for Jews most often has nothing to do with Jewish need at all, but rather a universalist agenda at odds with Jewish survival. In their zeal to destroy and remove Mr. Trump from the presidency, they have gone beyond ingratitude to downright lying about him, scheming against him, and throwing normal fairness and decency out the window.

Yom Kippur, the annual Day of Atonement, falls this week. One of the most prominent prayers is "for the sins we have committed," a list of grievous sins that may apply to the penitent, thereby requiring atonement. Thus, now may be the best and most appropriate time to review the sins many within the Jewish community continue to wage against President Trump. Perhaps they should begin some reflection and introspection regarding their three years of ferocious attacks and lies against a man who loves Israel and America and longs for Jewish individuals and children to be safe from terrorism. No doubt, there are as well other sins against innocent people that should be pondered, including sins even against Israel and Jewish peoplehood.

So, along comes a communist virus, and the metaphor could not be more apt. It shows why national borders are important, why command-and-control economies collapse during crisis, why officials in authoritarian states exacerbate life-and-death problems because they fear telling their leadership difficult truths. How many lives in China and elsewhere would be saved today if China's military and local police had not threatened their own doctors, journalists, and ordinary citizens against speaking truth out loud? In a socialist utopia, though, tragedy and mistake are not allowed; because they reveal rot, they must be ignored. Better to live in a kingdom of pyrite than admit that "the welfare of humanity is always the alibi of tyrants."

Bernie Sanders is about to become President Trump's number-one enemy, and the communist virus spreading around the world has just become one of the most compelling story arcs for the 2020 election. While the press and Democratic Party salivate, however, they once again fail to see the president's coming blow. Donald Trump has spent forty years arguing that America's national security depends on being free of China. He has spent his presidency singlehandedly changing the country's course by bringing manufacturing back home. Opposed by Wall Street Democrats, he has demanded America's energy independence from overseas adversaries and has endured endless ridicule for seeking a new renaissance for America's blue-collar workers. While Bloomberg, Biden, and Bernie grovel in obeisance to their Chinese lords, President Trump sees American-made steel, American-made pharmaceuticals, and American-made electronics as instrumental to American freedom. The Democratic Party wants to give American citizenship to the world, but the communist virus is a timely reminder that the illegal and uncontrolled flow of people across our borders not only depreciates wages and destroys American culture, but also sacrifices the lives of American citizens. The misery of Chinese communism created this virus, and the misery of Democratic Socialism seeks to spread it across the United States. Border security is health security. And energy, steel, and manufacturing independence is independence from overseas tyrants.

The coronavirus will pass. The stock markets will rise. The current state of fear will subside. But Bernie Sanders and the communist virus are now front and center, and President Trump has one hell of a story to tell the American people. It's a powerful story. It will be a powerful punch. And they'll still never see it coming. Just watch.

The media use the transgender movement as a lever forcing people to deny reality

George Orwell knew that totalitarian dictatorships retain power by compelling people to agree that 2+2=5. But what happens if it's not the government, but the media that lie? With the American media pushing transgenderism, we're finding out.

With accelerating force, the media insist that biological sex is meaningless and that people's sex is determined by their feelings. We are told to accept that people, through wishing, hormones, and surgery, can magically become the opposite sex.

Over the years, the homosexual rights movement has made people realize that, in a free society, no one should be penalized for a sexual preference. Today, the transgender movement, using the homosexual movement, is working with the media to force us to give it the same rights and respect. This ignores that homosexuality is different from so-called transgenderism.

Homosexuality does not force us to deny biology. Homosexual men are still men, and homosexual women are still women. Their differences are behavioral.

Transgenderism, however, is not about behavioral choices or biology. It's about denying fundamental biological realities. The saddest thing is that those who have accepted the media's drumbeat, often as an antidote to deep depression, are discovering to their cost that it's a lie.


Those committed to individual liberty will let people claim to be the opposite sex, or a camel or a Martian. But while the First Amendment ensures that our government can neither tell us that these beliefs are true nor punish us for denying those beliefs, our media are subtly trying to recalibrate our brains.

The latest shot fired in this media war to have us accept that 2+2=5 is an NBC article bemoaning women suffering from periods. Wait. That's wrong. It's not about the fact that, since the dawn of humankind, periods have been a pain in the tuchis. Instead, the article is about the psychic suffering of women who think they're men but, in relentless fealty to biological reality, still have periods:

When transgender model and activist Kenny Ethan Jones experienced his [sic] first period, he [sic] faced both physical and psychological pain. Initially, Jones, who had not yet come out as trans at the time, felt like he [sic] was losing control and didn't understand what was happening to his [sic] body. However, one thing was clear: He [sic] didn't feel like himself.

"I didn't believe that having periods would be a part of my lived experience," Jones told NBC News. "I felt isolated; everything about periods was tailored to girls, yet me, a boy [sic], was experiencing this and nothing in the world documented that."

He [sic] currently experiences a wide range of challenges with his [sic] monthly bleeding, especially when it comes to getting his [sic] hands on menstrual hygiene products.

Women all have a wide range of challenges when it comes to periods. They are painful, messy, and inconvenient, and they alienate women from their own bodies. You're not different, Kenny. You just think you are.

The real horror for Kenny, though, is that the companies who make tampons, pads, and other products for menstruation keep marketing them as if their customer base is...get this...female:

Some transgender and gender-nonconforming people who menstruate, like Jones, say when the products are categorized as women's products, they can feel alienated — and may even avoid purchasing them altogether.

The same women who believe they're men also believe they deserve special price breaks on menstrual products...because they're not really women. They're just men who every month have a period just like women:

The hurdles some trans men [sic] and gender-nonconforming people who menstruate say they face include the high cost of period supplies[.]

The article demonstrates that our media are relentlessly using the transgender movement to force Americans to believe that 2+2=5. Once the media have us believing that trangenderism is real, what else will they have us believe?

Perhaps they'll have us believe that, when Iran shot down a passenger jet flying out of Tehran Airport, Donald Trump was responsible for the 176 innocent people who died. What's sad is that, even in Iran, a tyrannical nation in which lies are government currency, the people aren't buying that story.

It is crucial that Westerners discover what Muslims are saying when they recite the Islamic mandatory prayers before sharing their places of worship. [...] This article explains what the Islamic daily prayers mean, with focus on the Friday prayer within the context of Islamic law or sharia. Being better informed will make Westerners think twice before opening the doors to Muslim for prayer.

[...]

A deep hatred and rejection of Judaism and Christianity are hardwired into Islamic doctrine, including the Koran. Many of its chapters are incorporated into mandatory daily Islamic prayer. [...] Repetition priming inculcates the notion of superiority over non-Muslims into the minds of all Muslims, instilling a deep distrust of non-Muslims [...] Is it any wonder why many Muslims are prohibited from being friends with Jews and Christians?

[...]

It's long past time that Westerners familiarize themselves with Islam and think twice before rolling out the welcome mats in their places of worship, especially in light of the tens of thousands of unvetted Muslim migrants coming soon to a city near you. Westerners who remain true to their faith by reaching out to Muslim neighbors with compassion will soon find out the hard way that mutual respect can never exist amongst different religions when one views itself as the perfect and supreme religion above all others, as Islam does.

Before sharing premises with Muslim worshippers, ask yourself the following question: would Muslims anywhere ever allow Jews or Christians into a mosque sanctuary to lead a Jewish or Christian prayer service?

The Left is following the inescapable logic of its fundamental rejection of human nature and common sense. With Mr. Obama’s active support, our elites are now determined to make us all cooperate in same-sex “marriage,” to accept a radical redefinition of gender, and to pay for other people’s contraceptives and elective abortions. Freedom of speech, religious liberty, the rights of conscience, and even intelligible grammar and clear thought, must all be sacrificed to the gods of sexual liberation. Prognosis: sustained unpleasantness, with a chance of civil unrest.

There is always hope, of course. Perhaps our 45th president will help us regain our senses and turn these messes around. The night is darkest just before the dawn. But whatever happens, surely Mr. Obama has secured for himself a prominent place in the annals of failure.

Well I think Col Ralph Peters said it correctly, the Obama strategy is to recall Holder to head a movement called JEHADI LIVES MATTER. As long as he isn't touched by his Muslim brothers he will be okay with American terror deaths at the hands of the ISIS Army he's importing. He already has seeded the Executive Branch with Muslim Brotherhood members, some have been named on line as infesting the Dept joke of Homeland Security. And his good buddy John Barack O'boehner when Speaker shot down Michelle Bachman and four Conservative members of Congress for an investigation of this hiring of our enemies within our government. Which kinda makes ya wonder why the Weeper did NOTHING to
protect this Republic from this monster. When something happens here a la Paris I believe he and Squish McConnell along with the other careerists in Congress should be held as responsible as the Obama Crime Synidcate and answer for the same crimes. They the GOP lied to us in 2014 and both of them, Squish and Weeping Johnny LIED to us, and have done nothing. We can't afford to allow the Socialist left a.k.a the D's to take over,we learned how much they respect our Constitution after passing HA! ObamaCare but hopefully the voters in the states they (Establishment as a whole) will remove them ALL and put loyal patriotic members in their place. Ted Cruz is RIGHT
it's the Washington Cartel, and it's represented by the Establishment on both sides.

The overwhelming statement that speaks volumes about this "administration" is the much deserved total lack of respect for the First Lady:
Traditionally, since the founding of this country, the First Lady has always, regardless of her personal issues/drives (Eleanore Roosevelt, Hillary Clinton, et al) been treated with a level of respect/decorum.
Not this one.
Never has a First Lady been referred to by derrogatory terms:
First Wookie, Moochelle, Mooch, Michael (claims that the First Lady is, in fact, a transgendered male).
Never, in our whole history has this ever happened.

If liberals don't trust their fellow citizens to carry guns, then they shouldn't trust their fellow citizens to vote, and they shouldn't vote, either. They should leave all decisions about their lives in the hands of government and embrace a nanny state that will take care of them, always be there to protect them, and tell them what to do.

[Hyperlinks in original]

A former French minister stirred up controversy today after saying Germany 'took our Jews and gave us Arabs' as France began taking some of the thousands of refugees arriving in Germany.

Patrick Devedjian, a right-winger who served in the governments of presidents Jacques Chirac and Nicolas Sarkozy, made the remark at a press conference, but quickly tried to backtrack on social media.

'My humorous jest was misplaced,' Devedjian wrote on his Twitter account, saying he regretted it all the more because he himself helps refugees in need.

Au contraire, former Minister Devedjian, your jest was not misplaced, it was true as far as it went and could have/should have gone further. As a descendent of Armenian immigrants, certainly you know how the Muslim Ottoman Turks slaughtered their neighbors, the Armenian Christians and other Christians such as the Assyrians and Greeks, 100 years ago without protests from the so called international community. Indeed this silence helped encourage Hitler, may his name and soul be permanently eliminated, a few decades later when he began his evil plans. And the French were very co-operative rounding up the Jews, pointing out their hiding places to the Nazi Germans and stealing their belongings. The so called World War II French Resistance is an oxymoron, French Collaboration is/was notorious.

The French Muslims originally entered France in large number from Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco which at one time were French colonies; France governed Lebanon and Syria after World War I under a League of Nations mandate. The French Muslims have not integrated well into France; many neighborhoods are "no go" zones where French police dare not enter. And now more want to enter if they can't make it to the generous welfare country of Germany.

[...]

And so former Minister Devedjian, you are correct; don't apologize. England, France and Germany--and much of Europe--are paying the consequences of their ancestors' sins. And their own.

And on the eve of the Jewish near year of 5776, reading about the troubles of Europe and the intra Muslim slaughter, I am reminded of the Biblical prophecy from Bereshit (English: Genesis) that God gave to Abraham,

"I will bless those who bless you, and him who curses you I will curse; and by you all the families of the earth shall bless themselves" (Genesis 12:2-3).

Should the United States take in (even more) Syrian refugees?

No.

And here’s why.

We have already committed to accepting thousands of Syrians over the course of the next five years. So the decision to bring Syrians to our country is not one merely being debated, it is, regrettably, already well underway. (It is regrettable to have to say “regrettably” when talking about this, but Muslims pose a unique threat to free people everywhere.)

[...]

Numbers aside, the issue of Syrian refugees must be put into a larger context. (And, just for the record, the word refugees really should be put in quotes, as will be explained later.)

First, everyone must ask why so many Islamic nations are refusing these refugees.

[...]

No doubt this fear of importing terrorists is sincere, if not also ironic coming from countries that enforce Sharia law. But there is likely another factor at play, which is hijrah, the Islamic doctrine of immigration whereby societies are overwhelmed with Muslims such that Muslims become the dominant force. Immigration jihad.

[...]

And then there is the matter of so much hysteria over Syrian refugees when Christians persecuted in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East have been refused entry to the United States. Where has been our outrage and where has been the world’s commitment to make sure they are given safe haven in the West? (See here, here, here, and here.)

Of course we know the sickening and tragic answer to that question. We are living in an age when Christianity is demonized and Islam is elevated, thanks to the leftist/Islamic agenda along with a hefty dose of cowardice and ignorance on the part of those who passively sit on the sidelines.

[...]

Here’s a snapshot of the top six GOP candidates (according to the latest RCP averages) stand on Syrian refugees:

When Donald Trump was asked whether the United States should accept some of the Syrian refugees, he said, “possibly, yes.”

Wrong. The answer must be an unequivocal “no, and here’s why.”

Marco Rubio expressed interest in accepting more Syrians if we could have a vetting process that would assure no terrorists got through.

Wrong. Of course we don’t want terrorists entering the United States, but this issue is about more than terrorists. It’s also about increasing Muslim immigration. (Not to mention the near impossibility of ensuring that no terrorists get through.)

[...]

We must close our borders to Syrians and all Muslims who want to live in the United States. There’s no room at the inn. We’re all filled up with mega mosques and Muslim schools that teach hate; with Muslim Brotherhood front groups, lawfare, and creeping Sharia. With beheadings and honor killings. And prison converts. And terror training camps. And deadly acts of jihad.

As far as the Trayvon Martin situation goes, acquittal or no acquittal, the whole event and subsequent trial is a tragedy. And Skittles and iced tea or not, 17-year-old Trayvon should never have been lurking about in a hoodie between buildings on a dark rainy night in a townhouse complex. Now, regardless of how or why this boy died, a child is dead and will never have an opportunity to grow out of the typical youthful foolishness which ultimately cost him his life.
And for every hoodie-wearing thug out there who's now blaming George Zimmerman for Trayvon's death, know this: the behavior of those who give good, upstanding young black men a bad name are ultimately much more responsible for Trayvon's death than one legally-armed American citizen defending himself against an out-of-control teenage boy slamming his "crazy ass cracka" head against a concrete walk.

Instead of blaming racism for profiling a black kid strangely meandering around in the dark on a drizzly night, how about placing the blame at the feet of all the black youth, like Trayvon, whose behavior on other occasions causes suspicion to be focused in the general direction of the larger population of perfectly innocent black teenage youth?
For example, has Michelle Obama discussed who killed 15-year-old Chicago schoolgirl Hadiya Pendleton in a drive-by shooting? Of course not, because the killers were two black youths: 18-year-old Michael Ward and 20-year-old Kenneth Williams, neither of whom look anything like George Zimmerman.

FBI records show that in 2005 alone, African Americans accounted for 49% of all homicide victims in the U.S. The U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics cited data showing that 93% of murdered blacks had the crime perpetrated on them by other blacks. That means if Trayvon had continued on in the direction in which he seemed to be headed, based on the rate that young black males die at the hands of other black males, Trayvon's chances for survival were, at best, a crap shoot.

Then, the day after George Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder, the President of the United States chose to stir the race-baiting pot again by intimating that America should honor Trayvon by passing gun control:

"I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son. And as we do, we should ask ourselves if we're doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities."

Barack Obama isn't one to hide his disrespect for federalism or conceal his contempt for the legal system or the U.S. Constitution. The statement Obama made reveals that his motivation was to once again gain personal political expediency from someone else's heartbreak.

Think about it: the president sheds tears over murdered children, but it's always attached to advancing a specific political agenda. That's precisely why, in some circles, as America's most radical pro-abortion advocate, Barack Obama has zero credibility when discussing lives lost to gun violence.

As far as Obama is concerned, Trayvon Martin deserves kudos for delivering a big bang for his anti-Second Amendment buck. Nonetheless, if the Trayvon controversy should miraculously cool down, in due time someone else will come along and provide still more political capital for the president.

Rest assured, if need be, Mr. Obama will move on quickly from Trayvon, just as he moved from Tucson to Sandy Hook to any number of other tragedies he's used as political causes.

Unfortunately, based on what went on in Sanford, Florida, certain African Americans fall into the same category as the president they blindly support.

Black Americans hung up on fomenting racial unrest or buying into the victim mentality lack credibility too, because although they cry racism over the tragic loss of Trayvon Martin, who they call one of their 'babies,' they have shed few tears over the extermination of actual babies taking place for the last 40 years in abortion clinics all over America.

While focused on Trayvon Martin, socially liberal black Americans continue to ignore the genocide that kills thousands of black baby boys (and girls) every day, many of whom, if given the chance to live, much like Trayvon Martin might have grown up to look like the son Barack Obama never had.

Does it matter that blacks constitute only 13% of the population but account for 36% of all the abortions that take place every year? Where are the tears, protest signs, and New Black Panther demonstrations for the deaths of innocent children who didn't break anyone's nose or smash anyone's skull against a sidewalk?

For perspective, 13% of the U.S. population contributed 22,000,000 of the 60,000,000 children aborted since 1973. Each and every day in the U.S., approximately 1,876 black children are aborted. And yet pro-life people are supposed to believe that the angst over Trayvon's untimely end is based on the black community's respect for the sanctity of life?

In her fight to save the unborn, Erma Clardy Craven, the late Minnesota social worker and author of Abortion, Poverty and Black Genocide, once shared that, "17,000 aborted babies were found in a dumpster outside a pathology laboratory in Los, Angeles, California; some 12-15,000 were observed to be black." Does the president care about them? Apparently not.

While Obama is asking America to "honor Trayvon" by doing what Obama wants, we forget that none of the 15,000 black babies found rotting in that dumpster in LA got the chance to wear a hoodie, shop for Skittles and fruit-flavored iced tea, or skulk around in the dark in a Sanford, Florida residential complex.

Suffice it to say, if only liberal blacks would spend just one day shouting as loudly about the systematic slaughter being perpetrated upon millions of their babies, the angry "Justice 4 Trayvon" stance would likely be better understood by those who disagree with their choice of poster child for racial injustice.

Mises "Socialism" enumerates many forms of socialism that in their extreme case is totalitarianism. They are all authoritarian, centrally planned, statist paradigms but come in many flavors and strategies for implementing them. Today we have multiple forms of socialism emanating from DC and Blue State Crapitals.

The Democrap version is Marxism or communism. It is "public ownership of the means of production." Think the Student Loan industry or the DOJ and HUD nationalizing the suburbs and rural America. It is "One World Government" as evidenced by the TPP and Obama taking the Iran Nuclear Deal to the U.N. It is "democratic" in appearance as it appeals to the mob by a demagogue such as Obama, Schumer and Pelosi.

The GOP Establishment favors fascist-style socialism. It is "control of the means of production." It is the Farm Bill and Export Import Bank that showers billions on favored corporations. It is owned and operated by the Crony Chamber of Commerce. The GOP Establishment loves Agenda21 with its light rail and solar boondoggles as monopolistic, fascist government breeds corruption between politicians and big business.

We also have syndicalism with our unions, especially Public Employee Unions. It is no different than the Guild system of Feudal times except that it is based on ideology instead of heredity.

Yet, when some encourage the ignorant to vote, there is method to their madness. The people I speak of do in fact care about the "process," it's just that their process -- that "systematic series of actions directed to some end" -- probably isn't the same as yours. This is because they seek a very different end: The attainment of power.
The people I refer to are liberals.
It's well known that the greater the voter turn-out, the more likely it is that liberal politicians will prevail. Thus, liberals reason that low turn-out is bad because it's bad for them. This, of course, means it's good for America.
Many will bristle at what I've said, but just take a look at how liberals plumb the depths of the barrel for votes. They want convicts and the homeless (many of whom are mentally ill, a perfect leftist constituency) to vote; they aggressively get out the vote in urban wastelands, their strongholds, which are plagued by crime, drug use and high abortion rate. Liberals in California were even advocating pubescents' suffrage: Giving 14-year-olds the right to cast ballots. So, it's funny. It used to be said that the Democrats were the party of the common man. The truth is that they're the party of the uncommon man.
And there is an irony here, one I'd like to ask our liberal friends about. I know you believe you're much smarter than we traditionalists, as you often attribute the embrace of our ideology to stupidity. I was, in fact, once told by a certain bit-part, liberal actor (forgive the redundancy) that I just wasn't as "evolved" as he was.
Thus, I wonder about something. How is it that, with few exceptions, the more degraded, immoral, criminally inclined, immature, and ignorant voters are, the better it is for liberal candidates? If these normally apathetic people are in fact voting correctly, as you liberals assert, to what do you attribute it? Beginners luck? And does this make you liberals question your ideology at all? Does it make you think, even for a moment, that maybe you're on the wrong side?
I won't hold my breath waiting for a good answer, but I will mention another irony. Liberals are completely taken with gun control; some of them even say that no one but the police should own firearms. Yet they believe that people too irresponsible to have their finger on the trigger should influence the choice of who will have his finger on the button.

The constant bickering and fighting with progressives is tiresome and droll. I actually think the formation of conservative cities would be a blessing for we Americans that would simply say no to the alphabet offshoots of the gubmint, taxation without representation, overpaying civil servants and the forced extortion to give them what we can't afford for ourselves, Section 8 housing, welfare, medicaid, abortions, Monsanto, freebies of all kinds, and a host of other crimes against our nation that the federal gubmint forces upon our earned incomes. I would like to see entire states opt for "conservative only" status. I can envision the hoards of "refugees" from neighboring states begging to be allowed entrance after they ran out of other people's money. Of course, they would be turned away because of their own stupidity. Let's move on this idea....it is the perfect solution to the condition our condition is in.

Absolute CONTROL is the operative word and primary goal of the evil we refer to as, "the Left." Control means breaking all current bonds of family, community, race, religion and country. Control also means eliminating obstacles in descending order, starting with the strongest first. Who is the strongest and most inclined to resist domination than the European White Man?

Seen from the above perspective, everything the Left does makes sense. What could be worse for them, than a free white man? Answer: a community of white men who are united by their love of God and country.

It's called immigration. Asians and Hispanics are the fastest growing minority populations. Soon you'll have to deal with the influx of Arab communities and blacks won't seem so scary then. Whites are being absorbed, not purely eradicated. Stop being dense. White women are intermixing with other races at staggering rates. Sorry but it's the truth. Why do you think segregation was such a hard fought battle in the south and a quietly fought battle in the north. The fruits of the labor of that loss manifest today. Lol.

As the Islamic invasion advances, mosques are proliferating across the United States at breakneck speed. And there appears to be no end in sight.

Since 9/11, the number of mosques in America has grown by 75%. The timing of this is no coincidence. Mosques are a symbol of Islamic supremacism. Islam attacks. Then it plants a triumphal mosque on the battlefield. And another. And another. And another.

The proliferation of mosques is also a sign of our incomprehensible response (or lack thereof) to the threat of Islam.

War has been waged against the United States and what have we done? We have welcomed the enemy with open arms. Dhimmitude has paved the way for hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of new mosques since the day nearly 3,000 Americans were murdered in the name of Islam.

If we don’t put an end to this madness, we will ensure the continued assault against us – an assault that, ultimately, will spare no one. (Do you hear that, dhimmis? That includes you.)

Mosques pose a dual risk to Americans. First there is the nature of what is preached inside the walls of the mosque. Second is the nature of the walls themselves.

As to the first point, recent studies show that 80% of mosques preach jihad (through sermons and/or materials) and that more than 95% of Muslims attend such mosques.

But the horror doesn’t end there as one considers the issue of funding. While many Muslims claim they raise the money for mosques within the local community, there is reason to doubt this assertion in many cases. Common sense alone would cause one to question how, for example, tiny communities of Muslims could raise millions of dollars to built gigantic mosques. Common sense aside, there is evidence that shows that 80% of mosques in this country receive funds from Saudi Arabia.

[...]

Do you see a pattern here? It’s the same pattern we see with all aspects of the growing Caliphate as Islam spreads outward from the Middle East to engulf more and more nations. And toward that end there is the ever-present mosque – a place where jihad is preached and in some cases, a place from which the jihadist attack is launched. (If the idea of having jihad attacks launched from mosques across America does not seem plausible, in addition to pondering what I just wrote, look into the 3 stages of jihad.)

Obama’s life style-friendly military -- If Putin doesn’t take us seriously, is it any wonder? The headline in the March 2 Stars and Stripes beams: “Gay, lesbian troops perform in drag at Kadena Air Base” in Okinawa. The publication disclosed that the drag show was “in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered troops.” Doubtless, this will do much for the morale of the non-LGBT troops. But as then-Army Chief of Staff George W. Casey, Jr. said at the time of the Ft. Hood massacre (which the administration still refuses to call a terrorist incident), diversity is the New Action Army’s most important product. Perhaps we could deploy an elite unit, armed with vibrators, to the Crimea to counter Spetsnaz commandos.

I say let us allow Putin to be the next world leader, because with the way o-bozo is leading us the wrong path, We the People will need someone to liberate us the way the World War II American generation liberated Europe and Asia. Putin will perhaps one day free the American people from the arrogant Kenyan socialist.

Americans are so focused on Ukraine that we still have many internal questions that remain unanswered:
a) Why is the messiah cutting the military and increasing internal forces like DHS? Answer: Because the elite ruling class in America needs protection from 'We the People.'
b) Why did DHS buy billions of rounds of hallow point ammo? Answer: To kill Patriotic Americans, what else?
c) Why did obummer purge the military? Answer: Because he needs 'yes' men who will shoot innocent Americans.
The question list goes on and on.. So,

Long live Russia, and God Save America. President Putin - Please help us.

Do you remember a recent interview this grifter had with Bob Costas? The man just got off a crack pipe to do the interview and everyone declares he was just tired (eyelids flopping, lips quivering and blue, etc). We have a damn "Secret" Service who knows this and they sit quietly by and let it happen.

Barack Hussein Soebarkah: In Two Places at the Same Time?

The 44th President of the United States is, of course, Barack Hussein Obama II.

Barack Hussein Obama II has also been known by names such as Barry Soetoro, Barry Obama, and Barack Hussein Obama (Soebarkah).

To be sure, only supposed madmen note that the name "Soebarkah" originated in very tight spatiotemporal proximity to the operations of a cult called "Subud" that was founded by a Muslim named Mohammad Subuh -- a cult wherein personal name changes were the order of the day.

That Soebarkah's mother associated with members of the cult, and that, some 45 years later, a leader of the cult (Deliana Loretta Fuddy) would be the first non-medical doctor in the state of Hawaii to run the State's Department of Health (and therefore have custody over Soebarkah's long form birth certificate) is, shall we say, rather odd -- but nothing more than that, except to the most determined and deluded of conspiracy theorists.

Conspiracy theorists might add that cult leader Fuddy, relatively soon after her certification of Soebarkah's origins, apparently perished in a plane crash survived by everyone on board including the cult leader herself -- until the cult leader, post-collision, poetically disengaged a hand and was swallowed by the ocean.

But, this is truly sheer madness -- all of it; there's simply no denying it.

And yet, the depths of the madness inspired by the most transformative of presidents remain unfathomed -- even by the most ardent of conspiracy theorists.

You see, there are certain very queer facts about the nameshifter that not even the most ardent conspiracy theorist will want to deny.

Astoundingly, it would appear that Soebarkah could be in two places at the same time.

[...]

Of course Soebarkah himself did not fold time and space; of course he is not a genius supreme.

The genuine, non-conspiratorial explanation is much more mundane.

Soebarkah lived in Indonesia, then appeared in Hawaii for a very brief spell, then moved right back to Indonesia, and then back to Hawaii again.

We can confirm this by consulting Department of Education records.

Except we can't, of course, because by mere happenstance the Department of Education "has been unable to find his records."

Perhaps instead we could simply examine the 1965 passport of Stanley Ann Dunham? Nope; the State Department informs us that Dunham's passport materials were destroyed as a matter of routine.

Clearly, these sorts of thing often happen.

Just as it frequently happens that the National Student Clearinghouse -- responsible for collegiate education verification -- goes back and forth on a whether a person was enrolled at an institution for one year or two years -- as it did with Soebarkah.

And, literary agents often, out of nowhere, suppose that their US born clients were in fact born in Kenya.

In addition, and just as unquestionably, the passports of presidential candidates with rock solid identities are breached every election cycle.

In view of the foregoing, it should be obvious that everything is cool with Soebarkah's Social Security Number, his Selective Service card, and so on; only racists and those who oppose amnesty think otherwise.

Any conclusions to the contrary obviously amount to nothing more than conspiracy theories -- racist aspersions cast upon a president whose identity is as constant and known as Ronald Reagan's was.

You have hit the nail on the head. The left/gays do not want the issue of anal sex to be discussed because they know that most normal people find it repulsive or at least consider it abnormal. Academia, MSM, Hollywood, all present gays as intelligent, stylish, cool, sophisticated people, but the thing that actually defines gays : anal sex, is never to be mentioned. And as we have seen with A&E, anyone who does mention it will face their wrath. If society would openly discuss what they actually do, then the coolness of homosexuality will disappear.

I've always thought that if the homosexual movement had any courage of its convictions, it would've stood by the "pedophile" priests and lauded them as "initiators of the young" into "something beautiful"--or faaaabyuluss--as well as hailing them as brave infiltrators of a hostile institution.

Hence, when I hear of India's recriminalizing sodomy, I can only say "JAI HIND"!

The rate of true pedophilia in the Catholic priesthood is lower than in the general population. The vast majority of predators were practicing homosexuals who never should have been in he priesthood to begin with. Since the New York Times, Washington Post, etc., will never, ever EVER say anything negative about homosexual behavior, voila! "Pedophile priests"!

At Christmastime, those of us who can see the truth about these gay issues face multiple conflicts. The world believes that we are full of what Anthony Kennedy calls "animus." We are increasingly pathologized as haters or else criminalized as the purveyors of discrimination. Our politicians surrendered us for thirty pieces of silver from the Human Rights Campaign and Paul Singer long ago, while religious leaders either cave, as did most Methodists and reform Jews, or else cut ties to us to save themselves the bother, as have many Catholic and Anglican leaders.

The LGBT lobby has been ruthless about intruding into all our relationships both personal and professional to indoctrinate people in its sexual ideology. It doesn't matter that this ideology of biological determinism and sexual abandon destroys gays themselves, as well as the people around them who feel the fallout from their depression, sexually transmitted diseases, eating disorders, anxiety, exploitation, sexual assault, domestic violence, and suicide -- all the trademarks of a gay world that has been decaying from within while its self-appointed lobbyist overseers bicker with the outside world about same-sex marriage.

The more resources the LGBT lobby has shifted from reforming gay culture to erecting a façade of suburban marital normalcy that precious few gays can ever really obtain, the gloomier and unhappier gay people have become as individuals.

Yet to bear witness on this topic is relentlessly painful. The LGBT lobby has warped my relationship with students, my relationship with gay friends, my relationship with the press, my relationship with bosses at the university, my relationship with readers, and saddest of all, my relationship with my own family. My relatives, all well-intended liberal devotees of the New York Times, will believe what Frank Rich or Maureen Dowd writes about gays before they believe me, their own brother. Of the large brood fostered by our sprawling family tree, only I knew of my mother's sexuality from early on and viewed her partner as a second mother; not coincidentally, only I ended up coming out as queer and living a queer life.

"Let's agree to disagree," they say, when the topic of Governor Brown's signing a ban on ex-gay therapy comes up. "That's how you see it, but not necessarily how it is," they say, when I tell them about the epidemic of homosexual rape in the military, something I witnessed firsthand because I was the only one who served in the armed forces. "My gay friends tell a different story," they say, when I try to open up about what really happened between 1984, when I was first introduced to gay sex at the age of thirteen, and 1999, when I fell in love with the woman who would become my wife. "You've always been one to exaggerate." And at last, on the issue of our own mother, "I don't feel comfortable talking about this."

To bear witness and speak honestly means, sometimes, having to feel pain at the hands of people you love. In a time of chocolate cookies, fireplace stockings, and wrapping paper, I wish that John 5:13 didn't remind me that these are among the things that God expects us to surrender if it means we must speak a truth that others do not want to hear.

The Chaotic Variations

We have a conductor in the White House and the media are his orchestra. Whatever the conductor does, whichever way he moves his hand, the horns move in that direction. The conductor sets the tempo by forming an invisible shape in the air with his hand. When the conductor cues for an accelerando, the music speeds up. The conductor is also in charge of dynamics. When the conductor raises his arms to gesture grandioso the amount of air blowing into the wind instruments per cubic inch of lung volume increases, and likewise, to soften the orchestra to pianissimo, the conductor again traces back down with his limbs to quiet the noise.

So let's turn to Syria.

Right now we have a very good orchestra. By 'very good' I mean one that minds their conductor like no other before it ever has. It was merely last month, September, when Mr. Red Line was bailed out of having to act by Russia's dictator. Oh, there were caveats, of course, John Kerry would *ahem, cough* follow up with the compliance process of eliminating WMD. Well? Here we are only a few weeks later and it's as if none of this ever happened. But this is the conductor at work. He does this with everything. Regarding Syria, its pianissimo. Shhhh. Cuing the media, the conductor looks at his loyal White House brigade of followers and takes his hands and lowers them. Obediently, they all follow suit, almost mechanically, lowering their worshipful heads like trained animals. They don't want to embarrass their conductor.

But then, he quickly removes the composition off his music stand, rips the pages off altogether as they go falling off to the side and throws a new piece up. His hands start moving wildly in the air again. Distraction. Movement. Crisis. Energy. Get the heads looking over here again, look at me, Obama. The government WILL DEFAULT! Panic. We need more debt piled onto more debt or else we'll artificially crash the system, as if asking for more debt isn't crashing the system already. But for that logic to emerge would be impossible because the trumpets are so loud you can't hear anything else from the orchestra. Cymbals are crashing, drums are roaring, Obama's hands are dramatically waving from the shoulder joint itself in huge looping arcs.

There's no such thing as follow through or accountability. Anything this president says -- red lines, budgets, spending, his own healthcare law -- it's all crashing down around him and he just keeps on repeating inane non-truths. But alas, that too is the role of a good conductor. Monotone, the repetition of a single note, over and over, even as it numbs the mind of most, it will certainly sooth the hearts of his most dedicated faithful, the true believers.

Again, Syria. Not as if I care for that particular piece of geographical real estate or the people who inhabit it. However, only a few weeks ago the president was making sure all the rest of us were aware, and did. If there's only one thing greater than this president's ideological agenda, it is his own personal pride and arrogance. Not wanting to be put into a position where his own tough-guy words would turn him out as a wimp (red line), he had to pretend to be internationally macho like the guy who needs his friends to physically pull him back from a fight while he shouts brave assertions. Don't worry -- your orchestra pit is always there, sir. All you have to do is wave your arms around. We all know your base has the attention span of a gnat.

And before I forget, there is another term worth mentioning: Klangfarbenmelodie, defined as the technique of altering the tone color of a single note or musical line by changing from one instrument to another in the middle of a note or line. Well played sir. If the lulling of the stringed instruments starts to put us to sleep, it's easy enough to crash your gong to wake us all up, as all egomaniac children are apt to do if they don't get their way.

The only purpose behind homosexual so-called "marriage" is the destruction of the family. It is all tied in with the Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive - whatever the totalitarian dictators are currently calling themselves - thieves of our liberties latest power grab.

The family is God's idea. It is His creation of the basic building block of an orderly society, for the rearing and protection of children. He created the family as the basic unit of government; the father as head of the family is supposed to be directly answerable to God. But man in his foolishness didn't want God telling him what to do; so he bands together with like minded fools in rejection of God and elects a government made up of the biggest fools in the pack and is answerable to theminstead. And in his mind he has made progress. Government (men) seeks its own power and wants no competition, so anything with the fingerprint of God on it must go. Therefore, Christianity must be outlawed and the family must be destroyed.

Today's fools think they are at the brink of a new Utopia. It looks like they are winning, but they can't win because they've already lost. They lost 2000 years ago when my Lord Jesus Christ died on a Roman cross and rose up again three days later. That doesn't mean that the ride won't get a little rough once in a while, so hang onto your hats!

I personally think that the United States has been assigned to the dustbin of history. The higher you rise the harder you fall and I believe that we are going to leave the biggest crater ever left by a fallen civilization.

I would roughly estimate that 85% of all in the legal profession are godless people who don't read the Bible, who laugh at it. I think I am rather safe with this figure of 85%. They only show up at churches on the rarest of occasions for some marriages, an occasional christening, or a funeral. And this is only for show, for keeping up appearances and making sure not to lose any potential ground in the climbing the greasy pole of societal status.

They have no moral foundation.

They don't understand this simplest of facts of the life we are given: No God = you have made yourself god.

All that matters is their six figure salaries, bonuses, what they drive, financial portfolios, what vacation property they own, career progression, who they knife in the back to get ahead, and who they can destroy through the power of the law.

The "Fruits of the Spirit?" They probably think that a term that organic gardeners use.

I have nothing but disdain for our legal professions, the law schools who produce them, and the faculty that is scum at these law schools.

I trust no lawyer.

Thomas Jefferson, call your office. Five lawyers on the Supreme Court have issues with your handiwork.

A revised version of the Declaration is the inevitable outcome of their opinions in the same-sex "marriage" cases hammered down on Wednesday in Windsor v. United States and Hollingsworth v. Perry.

For those who think those rulings are merely about an insignificant "social issue," think again. In the words of the Prophet Isaiah:


"Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands far off. For truth has stumbled in the public square, and honesty cannot enter. Truth is missing, and whoever turns from evil is plundered."

For starters, Mr. Jefferson, "appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions," even when it comes to marriage created by our "Creator" is so 1776.

You and your 55 cosignors of the Declaration didn't get this line right either:


"We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

So five wise guys and gals, not to be confused with Solomon, tweaked it, finding their inspiration in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Their revised standard version reads:


"We hold these delusions to be pretty darn clear that all people are whatever the heck they self-identify as, regardless of biology or DNA, endowed by their Supreme Judges with life, except, of course, for the unborn; liberty, meaning "the right to define one's own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life," as long as it doesn't offend the moral judgment of the Supreme Judges whose moral judgments trump those of their Subjects."

Justice Anthony ("Swinging") Kennedy wrote the incoherent majority opinion in Windsor, throwing out Section 3 of DOMA. That section defines the term "marriage" as one man and one woman "for all purposes under federal law, including the provision of federal benefits."

[...]

Thus, gay-enhancing states get to decide who gets federal benefits. If you can't connect the states' liberty dots to federal benefits, you obviously attended the wrong law school.

A supermajority of a bipartisan Congress enacted DOMA, which was signed into law by former President Bill Clinton in 1996. According to Kennedy, they were blinded by a desire to "demean," "harm," "injure," and "degrade" "same-sex couples" who were "married" somewhere.

It was a banner day for Kennedy and his chutzpah cabal. Where did Congress get the idea that it can decide who gets federal benefits?

[...]

Justice Scalia's dissenting opinion in Windsor unmistakably sounds the death knell for the right of self-rule enshrined in the Declaration and Constitution:


"By formally declaring anyone opposed to same-sex marriage an enemy of human decency, the majority arms well every challenger to a state law restricting marriage to its traditional definition."

Religious right organizations have been fighting for father's rights. They have been fighting against the no-fault divorce laws that make it easy for women to walk out on husbands and stick them with ludicrous child support payments. They build family counseling centers and educate counselors who try to help those struggling to hold families together, many times, simply attending a church or even a bible study can help encourage "uncooperative" spouses. Values organizations are striving against the "hook-up" culture so prevalent in the American single's scene, college and high-school campi to prevent people un-ready for parenthood and marriage from getting into bed with eachother. They are fighting tooth and nail against the Planned Parenthood "safe sex" blather that encourages getting girls pregnant (and then turns a profit offering those women "family planning services" to end or take advantage -read: welfare and child support- of those surprise pregnancies).

And don't discount finding Jesus. You'll never imagine how much finding God's grace can bring healing and fix problems until you let it go to work in you. Yes, "the woman who got pregnant" screwed you in a multitude of ways, but letting Jesus deal with all the bitterness you're still carrying around will improve your life dramatically.

Dear Leader Emperor Barack Hussein Louie Benito Hugo Issuzu Obama's songbun system: The population of Dear Leader Barack Obama's developing Democratik People’s Republik of Amerika can be roughly divided into three tiers, and ones place in these tiers is called Obama songbun (based on North Korea's songbun system). An individual's Obama songbun is based on ones position at the time of Obama's ascendancy from questionable circumstances of birth to presidential occupation. Kenyan Obama himself, his Klingon wife and ruling party members, largely comprised of the capos of Rahm, Axelrod, Reid, Pelosi and the Kennedy family and their sub-capos, are the main elite. People who helped to bankrupt the nation while lining their own pockets are at the next level in the songbun hierarchy and often have high committee positions in congress or are appointed to cabinet and czar positions and other high offices. The lowest Obama songbun group is comprised of an as yet to be determined number of distinct classes, each with lower Obama songbun then the next. Tea Party members, conservative blog writers, conservative talk show hosts, Christians, and people who still believe in Ayn Rand's philosophy of individual rights and free enterprise or in the soon to be completely outdated U.S. Constitution and it's guarantee of the right of free speech and assembly have the lowest Obama songbun, and consequentially will occupy a role analogous to India's untouchables.

Adherents to the House of Obama are fundamentally and unalterably opposed to the survival of the Constitution of the United States, and most particularly it's Bill of Rights. The House of Obama is based on the teachings of Karl Marx, Benito Mussolini, Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, the Queen of Hearts and Joe Isuzu. The House of Obama commands that democrats carry out mendacity, calumny and psychosis indefinitely against all opponents until the House of the Constitution, which is alien to The House of Obama, is not tolerated, and all Americans are brought under the complete domination of the House of Obama, where Obamariah is strictly enforced.

It's not our products or materials that make America great. I'm not throwing in the towel with those who have made a choice to disown their heritage and have chosen to forget the ideals that make up the great country we live in. hussein obama is hitler, a disaster, a toxic substance dredged up from the pits of hell made to look like every grifter's, revenge artist's and loser's savior and friend. America didn't forget itself----hussein obama spoke to the basest, most self centered desires of human beings. He plays and dotes on corrupting all that is good and decent. Those who chose him and chose to cheat for him have their reward. Most Americans are still good people who love this country. I don't believe that we are "done" or have forgotten who we are. I just don't buy it. And I don't buy the last "And it did." I've become very suspect of posters who at the end of their diatribe seem to be saying, It's all over, Give up!" Perhaps that's not what you intended, but it seems that way to me.

A radical Christian would be one who deviated radically from the teachings of Christ. Examples would be Adolf Hitler, Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi. A radical Muslim would be one who deviated radically from the teachings of Mohammad. Examples would NOT BE Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda, the Taliban, Major Hansen and the Boston Bombers as they all did just what Mohammad taught.

You normally DO have trouble following logic that fails to coincide with your convoluted view of the world. Someday, when you finish grad school, maybe you can move to REALVILLE where reality matters and not what some silver ponytail prof. feeds you. Your biggest "trouble" is understanding ANTONIUS' religious faith and his core beliefs. Atheists rarely understand, you are no exception. Homosexual marriage, in REALVILLE will lead to a complege breakdown of our society. After all, once Homosexual marriage is the law of the land, it won't be long before perverts are dragging a 9-year old down the isle. And, some creep in a dress, will "marry" them. After all, it's their "lifestyle" and their "right." Or how about some dude who wants to "marry" his dog, or his "horse?" Isn't that a "lifestyle" choice as well? How about you Adam? Do you want to marry a man, dog, or maybe your pet rat? Wouldn't it be your "right?" BLUF: Once homosexual marriage is the law of the land, there is NOTHING to stop the above illustrated situations? Is that what you and your grad school cronies want?

[P]lease allow me to offer you a history lesson. My credentials go back nearly 3400 years, when my ancestors accepted God's laws at the foot of Mount Sinai; we Jews have seen civilizations come and go for a long time. And it is obvious that civilizations which appeared much greater than our little, poor, weak, and ever so unfashionable group, such as that of the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Persians, the Babylonians, and many others, are no longer there, and we are, still keeping those silly laws that we delusionally believe some sort of divinity gave us once upon a time. One of those silly laws, adopted by our daughter religions Christianity and Islam, forbids homosexuality. Do you think that this might have some bearing on the short lives of those greater civilizations and perhaps on our longevity? Is it even the slightest bit possible that God controls history, and men do not?

And whatever Barack Obama is presently, I don't believe he will be a legitimate president come January 20.

This is why Congressman Allen West was right not to concede his Florida race. And, frankly, if Romney believes that the election may have been stolen nationally, he should withdraw his concession.

Radical?

Unprecedented?

Yes, but so is vote fraud on the scale perpetrated by Obama's minions. And people needn't fear creating a national crisis - we are already in a national crisis. The only question is whether good Americans will stand and be counted or allow 2012 to mark our official descent into banana-republic status.

It's far worse than the article indicates. Secular humanism is only a tactic, not the goal. The progressive left is the world's biggest Gnostic cult. Scientism is their philosopher's stone; the "Lost Word" seeking to transform lead into gold, a metaphor of turning humanity into gods (or Transhumans) and immanentizing the Eschaton (we are the ones we've been waiting for..."fundamental transformation"). Science is magic and miracle in this system. Witness the "transhumanists" and the quest for immortality. The calls for a "scientific dictatorship" from HG Wells to Richard Dawkins.

When "citizen of the world" Barack Obama told an eager Berlin audience that he saluted the "divine spark within us all" he was simply reiterating the Gnostic cosmogony spoken against by St. Paul and St. John in the New Testament.

In this worldview, it is compassionate to abort babies, since material existence is the true evil and who would wish to punish women with babies, or punish babies with existence. Pessimism is the surest sign of Gnosticism. This world is not a good world corrupted in the fall of man, you see. This world is evil because it's materiality is itself "separation from the Divine Spirit". Material wealth is the sign of a necessary evil (necessary for the Gnostic gospel to proceed in all realms of influence); that, unless used to spread the ancient anti-philosophy of the Luciferians, must be countered, confiscated and defeated.

The family, faithful Churches, true philosophy and patriotism are all impediments and delusions in this system: delusions that keep the ignorant (non-Gnostics) from embracing their truest selves, which is as an emanation of the "collective soul". Individualism is evil because it hides the "true nature of reality" (we are One) in selfishness. Therefore, individual salvation does not and can not exist. Recall Mr. Obama's assertion that his individual salvation was dependent not upon himself or his "god" but upon collective salvation. This is the root of the progressive faith that government must solve all problems...the "collective will" must solve all problems.

The secularist pose is just that, a pose. The goal is Luciferianism, complete with rituals, sacrifices and a new age (ancient) hodgepodge of mythos that all, metaphorically and symbolically, tell the same fundamental story: "ye shall be as gods."

Witness the ease with which the left literally idolizes their leaders, from the cult of Rousseau, Napolean; Lenin; Stalin; Mussolini; Hitler; through the "self-actualization" cults of Astarte in the 20's to Guyana, the Family, the Process Church, the Manson cult and Heaven's Gate; to the faux-Greek "Throne of Pergamum" complete with rays-of-the-sun emanation/iconography for the One, Barack Obama. Even the pop versions today and their admiring press calls them "rock gods" and "Divas."

We're in big, big trouble folks. This isn't secularism.

But it can't so instead it mimics God in perverse, horrific manner. Two hundred million dead during the last century is a prime example of its toxic mimicry.

It has been recently revealed that the EPA has far surpassed the dark humor of blowing up kids and people on film that global warming scare-mongers promoted a few years back. In real life, the EPA has been conducting human experiments on people by piping diesel fumes from a running truck mixed with air into their lungs at a North Carolina university. The agency has ginned up yet another green crusade -- the lethal dangers of diesel fumes. They even had a gas chamber set up to accommodate the environmental research project that shockingly recalls the death camps in Poland.

Not surprisingly, the EPA is now in the process of being sued for conducting dangerous experiments on human guinea pigs. The courts will decide whether or not serious laws and practices were violated, including the international Nuremberg Code that was set up after sixteen Nazi doctors were executed for medical terrorism. After the barbaric fallout of Nazi Germany, where many people were treated like experimental animals, the Nuremberg Code was designed to be an international governing set of principles to regulate the practice of human experimentation. The whiff of the Jewish holocaust is therefore unmistakable.

[...]

Rudolf Hoess was SS. The SS was the greenest faction of the Nazi Party. It was run by Heinrich Himmler, who was an animal lover, vegetarian, and organic farming enthusiast. Himmler detested hunting. In an instructional letter sent to Dachau Concentration Camp and Ester-wegen, Himmler stated, "I wish the SS and the police also will be exemplary in the love of nature. Within the course of a few years the property of the SS and the police must become paradises for animals and Nature." In many ways, the SS was Hitler's "green" praetorian guard.

Both Hoess and Himmler belonged to a proto-Nazi wandervogel youth group called the Artamanens. The wandervogels of the early 20th century in Germany were nature-loving youth groups that promoted many green ideas and practices. Artaman basically means "country man," with certain racial-indigenous connotations.

[...]

While no one died in the EPA's gas chambers, the agency is increasingly acting like proverbial wolf in sheep's clothing. Under the guise of acting on behalf of everyone's health, the EPA has crossed a pathological line where people have been potentially treated like experimental animals under questionable methods that conjure up the horrors of the holocaust. More telling is the EPA subjected human beings to a concoction of diesel fumes that it already said was lethal. If the EPA were truly concerned about human health, they would not have performed such experiments on more than forty people in the first place.

This sounds familiar

I swear I heard this in 2004 and 2008, but that can't be right.

Will Obama Keep Power 'by Any Means Necessary'?

Let's go there: if Obama thinks he's losing, will he allow safe and fair elections on November 6? And if he does lose, will he peacefully turn over power to Mitt Romney on January 20, 2013? Or will he cling to power "by any means necessary," as a highly placed insider alleges?

Now, I'm truly sorry to raise such disgusting, un-American, crazy-sounding questions, but, alas, they're not crazy, and I've got a disquieting amount of evidence. The Democrats have already accused Romney of murdering a woman with cancer, financial felonies, and not filing taxes for ten years -- the last charge delivered by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on the Senate floor, on the basis of absolutely no evidence whatsoever.

By Democrat standards, I've got enough proof to put away Obama, et al. for life without parole.

Whatever chicanery Obama and his investors may be contemplating, it will probably unfold against some gargantuan crisis, manufactured or otherwise.

I started thinking of Marxism as a religion in the 1980s. It has a set of holy books, schisms, revered leaders, an exclusionary attitude toward all other beliefs, fanatic followers who believe they're entitled to win converts by force, its own set of codified moral values, rituals, a hierarchic priesthood of annointed leaders, et cetera. It's since occurred to me it's not a religion, but an anti-religion. Marxism mimics religions in many ways, but considering its only actual purpose is to put and keep Marxists in power rather than improve or uplift the lives of its followers, I've had to refer to it as an anti-religion. Is that a worthy distinction to draw? Is that quibbling, or a significant difference?

I started to doubt the purported "science" behind so-called "anthropogenic global warming" almost as soon as I heard about it and saw the proposed "solution." Carbon dioxide is supposed to be toxic when that's what plants use to generate oxygen? Fossil fuels are going to wreck the planet, so we need governments the world over to take charge of even more aspects of our daily lives? It sounded like a con, a scam, a hustle, an elaborate pseudo-scientific lie—which is what it's turned out to be, of course.

Is AGW a religion, or a cult within the Marxist anti-religion? Is self-styled "environmentalism" actually a whole and complete belief system in and of itself? Much as Germany's numerous, well oranized nature worshippers of the 1930s jumped on the Nazi band wagon, I have a hunch "environmentalism" or "greenism" is more like a cult than a whole religion or anti-religion. If it's not a cult, would it add clarity to regard it as a sub-set of Marxism or a Marxist front that masquerades as a respectable ideology? It seems to me "environmentalism" supports Marxism in an indirect way: collective "thinking" and tyranny are the goal, and the fake "scientific" means is almost interchangeable with Marxist fake "history" and fake "scientific socialism."

I doubt I'll ever understand why so many people embrace lies when facts and genuine scientific hypotheses are so much simpler.

[A Mosque Is Not Like a Church or a Synagogue]

The marked proliferation of mosques in the U.S. since 9/11 should raise a red flag for Americans. Recent controversies surrounding mega-mosque construction projects countrywide -- many in locations with almost no Muslims to speak of -- have grave implications for the future of these targeted communities and areas beyond.

Accelerated mosque-building -- in Murfreesboro, Tennessee; Staten Island, Brooklyn, and Ground Zero, New York; and Santa Clara and Temecula, California, to name a few -- carries significance beyond the mere construction of a collection of Muslim houses of worship. It represents yet another orchestrated effort to oust traditional American values and replace them with Islamic practices, laws, and beliefs.
Although most U.S. mosques heretofore have been built without resistance, the newly attendant controversies present speciously polarized views between, on the one hand, ostensibly welcoming, tolerant, multi-culti progressives who deny any possible radical agenda despite substantial evidence to the contrary in existing mosques and, on the other hand, so-called fearful, Islamophobic, ignorant bigots unwilling to embrace diversity. Mainstream media's predominant point of view is that any opposition to mosque-building represents a blatant unwillingness to integrate Muslims into American communities. This view disallows the possibility that such objections represent appropriate, reasoned responses to an attempt to destroy America from within and supplant its culture with a supremacist, totalitarian, and misogynistic ideology.

Islamic terrorism expert Steven Emerson, executive director of the Investigative Project for Terrorism, attributes the spate of mosque-building and land acquisition to the Muslim American Society (MAS), an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. Emerson contends that the MAS has been actively buying up property and establishing mosques to control the appointment of imams who "distribute the message they believe is necessary to spread Islam around the world."

It should be noted that a mosque is totally unlike a church or a synagogue, entities that serve their communities under the law of the land and are both empowered and restrained under the First Amendment of the Constitution. Under the Establishment Clause of that amendment, the government is prohibited from establishing a state religion or conferring preferential treatment on one religion over another. Although the government may not interfere with religious beliefs and opinions, the proscription of religious practices is permissible, as in the examples of polygamy and human sacrifice.

In the U.S. and in other Western countries, Christians and Jews freely and critically choose their brand of theology from a multitude of ecclesiastic offerings and determine their individual levels of religious observance or none at all. The exercise of faith and the observance of faith-related practices occur across a broad spectrum of individual behaviors based solely on personal choice.

In Muslim countries, no separation exists between mosque and state. Islamic doctrine or sharia controls all aspects of a person's existence, from the correct way to use the toilet to permissible forms of lying, or taquiya. For Muslims, Mohammed is the perfect man, whose every example must be emulated, even though by Western Judeo-Christian standards he was a mass murderer, pedophile, rapist, torturer, and looter. Furthermore, Islamic doctrine is immutable, and any criticism of the traditions and practices of Mohammed is considered apostasy, which is punishable by death.

No free individual will exists or is allowed when it comes to practices and observances. Sharia must be strictly followed. A mosque is a symbol of this ultimate authority and serves the function of organizing every aspect of life in a Muslim community...

Did you know that the turkey you're going to enjoy on Thanksgiving Day this Thursday is probably halal? If it's a Butterball turkey, then it certainly is -- whether you like it or not.

...I discovered that only two plants in the U.S. that perform halal slaughter keep the halal meat separated from the non-halal meat, and they only do so because plant managers thought it was right to do so. At other meat-packing plants, animals are slaughtered following halal requirements, but then only a small bit of the meat is actually labeled halal.

Now here is yet more poisonous fruit of that scandal.

...Across this great country, on Thanksgiving tables nationwide, infidel Americans are unwittingly going to be serving halal turkeys to their families this Thursday. Turkeys that are halal certified -- who wants that, especially on a day on which we are giving thanks to G-d for our freedom? I wouldn't knowingly buy a halal turkey -- would you? Halal turkey, slaughtered according to the rules of Islamic law, is just the opposite of what Thanksgiving represents: freedom and inclusiveness, neither of which are allowed for under that same Islamic law.

Justia is a Legal Document and Law Case History website which has become a Go To source for most bloggers and lawyers needing a quick resource for citation has deliberately tampered with the citations and text of case(s) that inure to Minor v. Happersett. This is the only Case that SCOTUS has ever ruled on that is directly on point to the requirements of Article 2 of the Constitution on the definition of a Natural Born Citizen! Yes, changing SCOTUS Case Documents is a Federal Crime, several members of the Legal Community are following up on this most grievous subversion of our Legal System.

This tampering occurred in the run up to the 2008 election, this SCOTUS case affirmed that Natural Born Citizens are children born to Citizens and are defined as the Mother and Father or Parent(s) must both be Citizens at the time of the Child's birth. In the case of an unknown Father the Mother's citizenship would be sufficient. Obama by releasing the truly flawed and faulted document declared himself ineligible to be President. Not to be one who would let a little trifle as this ruin his chances, he had the Federal Election Commission declare a "person" born under his circumstances declared a Citizen! Why let SCOTUS rule when he can do so by caveat, long live the KING.

Affirmative Action and Racial Profiling are one and the same. The profile justifies the action. Our 44th President was the beneficiary of racial profiling as well. Funny how profiling doesn't bother the usual jackals as long as it reaps large rewards for those at the receiving end. When Al Sharpton et al shout about how terrible it all is, they should be reminded that they wouldn't be where they are today if millions of stupid white people didn't profile him and others and conclude they must go to the head of the line.

The political strategy of conservatives and Republicans for the last several decades has been purely reactionary -- to wait for leftists in power to screw up, then reap the electoral rewards...But this strategy concedes the agenda to the left. At no time has the right actually been in control of the national agenda in any meaningful sense.

... By failing to form a militant conservative movement, defend bourgeois values, and suppress leftist radicalism, the right has created a monster. The left has already gotten nearly everything it wanted -- abortion, pornography, welfare, homosexual marriage, socialized medicine, a submissive and internationalist foreign policy, out-of-control federal spending, and federal interference in virtually every facet of American life.

... The right's strategy of conceding the national agenda to the left is exceedingly dangerous. The left's solutions to any one of a number of issues on the table -- deficit spending, cap-and-trade, energy security, Iran's nuclear program, illegal immigration -- could deal a mortal blow to the nation.

Gays have every bit as much right to get married as you or I. And in fact, they should.

A homosexual man has an identical right to take a woman in holy matrimony as may any other man. Likewise, the rest of us have just as little right to take some guy and pronounce him a bride. This isn't a question of differing rights. Our rights remain in perfect symmetry. Homosexuals are now and always have been permitted to marry[...]

It doesn't matter how many moral lines are breached, the homosexual activists will keep agitating because it's not persecution they resist, but internal loathing projected outward. Social mores are merely a scapegoat. Tradition and virtue represent punching bags on which to relieve their rage. In truth, the Left wants not for gays to marry so much as to abolish the very concept of marriage.

Marriage is the foundation of coherent society and the conduit distilling our fallen natures into civilized community. Many studies reveal the correlation between marriage and everything from income generation, our children's academic achievement and lower crime rates. Undercutting the family exemplifies folly. The conventional family offers society its best chance to excel[...]

Rather than seek to undermine such a foundational institution necessary for healthy society, homosexuals ought to get married. Marriage would temper their urges and channel their desires into something beneficial for both them and society at large.

Global warming adherents are simply replacing God -- Christian or otherwise -- with constructs of their own. It's quite remarkable that socialism or Marxism -- which are generally hostile to religion or faith, which lay claims to objectivity and reality, and which most global warming adherents are in sympathy with -- should fall into the hands of those who, despite their protestations, are decidedly antagonistic to the openness and dissent that in large part makes science science. Granted, socialism and Marxism are frauds (the latter especially), but they maintain some pretense of being reality-tested.

Global warming isn't a religion, not even figuratively. It more resembles a cult. In a couple of generations -- let's hope -- the global warming camp of our time will be seen clearly as having occupied the fringe of science; a heretical (in scientific terms) movement given to wild claims and inspired by a cultish fervency to convert fellow humans to their extreme beliefs -- findings and facts be damned.

Making an already weak economy even worse is the intent of the Cloward/Piven Strategy. It is imperative that we view the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan's spending on items like food stamps, jobless benefits, and health care through this end goal. This strategy explains why the Democrat plan to "stimulate" the economy involves massive deficit spending projects. It includes billions for ACORN and its subgroups such as SHOP and the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. Expanding the S-Chip Program through deficit spending in a supposed effort to "save the children" only makes a faltering economy worse.

If Congress were to allow a robust economy, parents would be able to provide for their children themselves by earning and keeping more of their own money. Democrats, quick to not waste a crisis, would consider that a lost opportunity.

Usually, children's books do not scare me.

"Barack's" dust jacket states that it is for children ages 4-7. This book scared me very much.

I am scared because of what this book will do to my daughter and other children who read it. My little girl is six and a half years of age. I will not allow her to read this book or have it read to her without my being able to explain to her what was omitted from the book. I will be checking with her school teachers for the next five years or so to make sure that she is not exposed to this book without the material that was omitted. To do otherwise would allow my child to become a victim of political deception.

College has long been bigoted toward conservatives. We have all seen it in the elevation of relatively untalented radical Leftists like Angela Davis, Ward Churchill, and William Ayers to professorships while genuine conservative scholars like Newt Gingrich were denied tenure. David Horowitz has built an entire organization simply to defend the individual rights of students against bullying by radical professors (professors, some of whom in their day overran college administration buildings and intimidated the campus faculty.)...


...Our colleges have adopted the same attitude toward intellectual inquiry and scholarly objectivity that colleges in the Soviet Union and in Nazi Germany. The Communist Party in the Soviet Union demanded, for example, that biologists use the fantastically silly theories of Lysenko, and those who did not ended up in the Gulag. The Nazi Party insisted that colleges use Nazi racial theories in every area of study, and with very few exceptions, the professors of Germany nodded in agreement.


Is Mein Kampus a more descriptive term for many colleges in America today? Once politically correct thinking was limited to those disciplines which deal directly with politics. Today biologists must have politically correct views on Darwinism, geologists must have politically correct views on global warming, and criminal justice professors must have politically correct views on President Bush.


A recent Zogby poll of Obama voters found disturbing (and controversial) results. These voters knew almost nothing at all, and that is hardly an exaggeration. I wonder how many of these voters graduated from college? I wonder how many of them teach at our colleges? I wonder how many of them spent their formative adult years in the bowels of Mein Kampus?

The term "religious people" is meaningless. All people - especially militant anti-theists - are religious. The vital question is what one's religion believes. What I call "The Great Faith" of the Judeo-Christian heritage believes in a loving, good and just God - a Blessed Creator, as devout Jews might put it.


The history of Judeo-Christians is profoundly different than the history of other religious peoples, including religious anti-theists. The religious people of pre-Columbian American Mexico conquered other tribes simply to sacrifice them to Aztec gods. The religious people of Imperial Japan committed unspeakable crimes against the Chinese in following their national religion. The religious Nazis, who loathed passionately both Christianity and Judaism, committed unspeakable crimes against Jews, Poles and others. The religious anti-theists of Stalinist Russia and Maoist China murdered more than any other religion in history. And, of course, radical Islam murders indiscriminately.


No crimes of Judeo-Christians remotely approaches the holocausts of Aztecs, Japanese, Nazis, atheist Russia or atheist Japan. Why? Because all religions are not the same. Some religions are good and some religions are bad. Almost every single movement or belief which we now consider good originated in Christianity or Judaism. Abolitionism, prison reform, compassion for animals, equality before the law, medical science, systematic intellectual inquiry - nearly everything - traces back to a Christian or a Jew.
