Phony Comaraderie

This morning's email brought the following solicitation.

To

me

Hey Pascal,

I wanted to check in to see if you'll be able to contribute towards Heritage's million dollar goal by the December 31 deadline.

Blah, blah, blah, blah.

Blah, blah.

Blah, blah, and blah.
All my best,

Christie Fogarty
Director of Membership
The Heritage Foundation

P.S. The Heritage Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, so your gift by December 31 is tax-deductible.
Response:

Hey Christie (if that's your real name),

Your "Hey Pascal" greeting is the kind that I receive from buddies with whom I email back and forth regularly.

Am I now one of your buddy correspondents that this greeting seems appropriate?

It's been my experience that emails of this sort come from a mass mailing, and that yours is a one way email address that accepts no incoming
Bottom line: it's a waste of any recipient's time to respond to them as they would with any of their  buddies.

So, next time, don't even consider greeting me with you condescending "Hey" at the least. 
In fact, you may address me as Mr. Fervor. Make some attempt to begin on the right foot.

More Layers

A couple of days ago complained how Even Bright People Can't or Won't See Layers.

Today let's demonstrate how clever schemers make use of this defect. http://falfn.com/CrusaderRabbit/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_wink.gif

Orwellian America

When I read this headline at Breitbart.com,

Jeb Bush: GOP Doesn't Need Conservatives to Win 2016, Should Not Defund Exec Amnesty,

the words from Orwell's 1984 came to mind; a dire threat to the every man.  
O'Brien: If you want a vision of the future, Winston, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.
It occurs to me: surely that's an overreaction. But is it really?

Even Bright People Can't or Won't See Layers

When Dem senator Charles Schumer came out the other day against Obamacare, a friend of mine called excitedly to tell me of the news. It delighted him that the Dems were splitting.

I tried to convince him that Schumer is a long time hack, but quite shrewd in his manipulation of the news. (In that he always has been helped and never hindered by the SSM. That made it easier and, so, makes him look smarter than he really is.)

My friend just would not see it as that.

Then backing up my suspicions this piece came to my attention today.

Second Take: Schumer's Merely Attempting a Trial Balloon Tactic of Distancing Democrats From Obamacare, While Continuing to Support and Defend It
I thought the Schumer statement -- in which he criticized Obama for pushing Obamacare in 2010, instead of addressing the needs of the And The Middle Class -- was important.

But now I think it's just so much positioning. With Elizabeth Warren now endorsing his statement (!!!), it seems obvious to me that this does not represent a true schism in the Democrat Party, but rather a way to snooker the voters again, to Gruber them anew.
Bottom line: Because we don't have a truly independent press to provide us the proper cynical views about politicians, especially about Dems, and usually about GOPe, the task has fallen to the people themselves.

See the layers of the statements so you can figure out the underlying meaning. Look for and at the layers.

Sometimes it's like peeling an onion, and can make you cry. But it needs to be done.

Continuing On a Theme

That is, let's see if any of you find the following somewhat connected with yesterday's QOTD.

QOTD for Car Guys

Reflecting upon the following assessment on women by a woman
Women can be entertaining, but they’re expensive, inaccessible for most men, and from the male perspective, shockingly unreliable.
Francis W Porretto evoked an appropriate connection that you may never forget.

Well, yes, but you could say the same about Lamborghinis, and we certainly don’t stop desiring them for those trifling reasons.

Because it IS a Soviet-Style Media After All

The question -- answered by the headline above -- was asked by the man who has been tracking Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber all these years. 
Weinstein, back at home, was stunned at the reaction. Why did he keep finding Gruber gaffes? Why didn't the press glom onto this stuff first?
Yes Mr. Weinstein. A Soviet-Style media reports on only that news which allows the soviet-style government to operate with impunity; to hell with the voters it allegedly represents.

Furthermore, I recommend all read the article posted by Ace who highlighted this quote,

Meet the Guy Who's Single-Handedly Doing All of the Media's Jobs for Them


and then listen to the first 50 minutes of  Mark Levin from his show last night (11/10/14).

What is to be done about the revelations is problematic.

Any erstwhile leader who has even a plausible and not yet viable idea will indeed find many willing followers in America.

God help us. I suspect He is not getting any legitimate calls for help from the GOPe.

GOPe/Dem Coalition is STILL Steering

US over a cliff.


The elections just completed proves that a large number of Americans have had enough of the radical agenda.

The problem is that the GOP is not really a conservative party. It's an amalgam of conservatives and Progs. And the Progs are in the leadership and control the agenda. The nicest acronym used to refer to them is GOPe (Republican portion of the Establishment). Readers of this blog know I deride RINO (Republican In Name Only) and prefer SKUNC (Statist Kooks Undermining our Nation's Constitution). Whatever label you use for the GOPe, every principled conservatives has felt how it hates them.


In each and every corner of America a discussion needs to begin today. More people need to know that whatever mischief the GOPe manages to pull off in the next cycle, it is not the fault of conservatives.

The aim of that discussion is to come up with ways to divert the Establishment's steering of our republic over the cliff.

I'm an old man and I'm quickly running out of steam. If you think this idea is worth pursuing, then please comment below. I cannot contribute my assets, limited though they may be, to this effort if I don't even know you really want to try.

Remember Which Blogger Has Kept You Aware


#Ebola Czar Called Overpopulation Top Leadership Issue



What more need I say?

Maybe this.

Reread the warning under my masthead and consider bundling it with this story to those who scoff at such concerns.

Then pray that there are those near the highest levels of influence who will be reinvigorated with the holy spirit. That there remain some who still can affect changes in global policies that are not misanthropic and/or Malthusian pessimistic.

SSM Switches Gears

Here's the image of the pissed off community organizer that the SSM hid from America for six years.


Drudge headlines accompanying this image says
"CROWD WALKS OUT ON O"

Sure. The SSM wants to tell those it misled all these years that it is him who is the problem and not the deadliness that is their Leftist bent.

But those of us who recognize a character who is one (rather than having any) saw something our fellow citizens didn't see.

We saw this image before it was published.

It represents the soul of this creature from long before the time he became the darling of the SSM.

And what the American soul needs most is to understand how this is also the real image for every damned SKUNC in the country.

When he has a run in with a principled conservative, this is the image John McCain hides behind his smirk.

When she has to answer to a truly God-fearing man, this is image Hillary struggles to hide.

Peel away the smiling façade and this is what every Prog in the country looks like when they encounter tax payers who have had enough of Prog rule.

Know that SSM is disclosing this image because it thinks we are stupid enough to trust it now that it is willing to show Obola as he really is.

Don't buy it for a minute.

Falsehoods In Headlines and Fundraising

Obama Craters to New Low in Poll, Democrats at Lowest Approval in 30 Years

Let me either inform you or -- in a few instances -- remind you of some relatively recent history.

A few years ago, Robert Mugabe, president of Zimbabwe, had even lower approval ratings than this. And yet he won reelection.

And Saint Jimmie Carter blessed the election process. And the Western SSM blessed it too. No election fraud worth noting. Would they lie to you?

So you believe that such headlines are hopeful? Why? Because it's much better to be hopeful than angry, and that is how manhood in America has been conditioned these last few generations. Generations have been mouthing the last lines of the National Anthem while ignoring the implications of those words.
...the land of the free and [because it is] the home of the brave.

Certainly not brave enough to put an end to voter fraud, which is likely the most fatal of all frauds to any republic.

In case this is not enough. I received an email yesterday. Allegedly from John Boehner. It was so brazen in its request for money, I momentarily thought it could be from the Democrats employing psi-op counter-measures. Except the GOPe does think so poorly of its conservative grass-roots base that believe they can still get us to send money to them rather than to individual conservative candidates.

Speaker Boehner
To Me
Oct 14 at 5:58 PM
Pascal,
>Governor Mitt Romney emailed you <
> Congressman Paul Ryan emailed you <
> Vice President Dick Cheney emailed you <
> Governor Tom Ridge emailed you <
Now, I'm asking for your help.

Our team at the NRCC sent me the spreadsheet of recent supporters and I don't see your name on the list. We need all of our grassroots supporters engaged in these final weeks before Election Day.

The Democrats' campaign machine is desperate and it's stepping up attacks - if we don't have the resources to respond we could come up short when votes are counted.

etc.,etc.

First of all, if the GOPe really were interested in garnering votes, they'd be sending out emails for get out the vote (GOTV) efforts. From all reports, as well as from personal experience, this is simply no longer done.

But instead, they are begging us for funds. And you know how they'll spend those funds.
  1. Largely spent buying adds that will keep the SSM quite well funded and tearing us apart with divisive stories, fictions, and mindless entertainment. 
  2. And keeping the professional election fund raisers well paid.

Secondly, we know from their own words that the GOPe, led by Boehner and McConnell, has proclaimed that they'll not fight Obamacare or anything else that is unconstitutional but well established by now. Too many moneyed interests are making money. In other words, the GOPe are conservative in precisely the negative -- don't-you dare-rock-the-boat-or-else -- sense. I for one want nothing to do with them unless rope is nearby.

So if you, like me, are a conservative in the principled, constitutional republic loving sense, then understand how they are playing on your conscience that not funding them is doing not enough.

And if you buy that, you've already bought the proverbial Brooklyn Bridge and the GOPe's disregard for your intelligence is indeed well founded. This is our alleged alternative to the radical Progs? G-d help us!

Sigh. The Prog murder of our once great republic continues apace. Pray.

NRSC, Your Money, and Lenin

IIRC, Lenin famously predicted that capitalists would sell him the rope to hang them with.

It seems the Prog NRSC thinks it can beg conservatives for money with which to campaign against the grass roots but with which it claims it will use against Democrats. Bridge in Brooklyn unneeded.

Slipping away

NRSC Breaking News

To: Me
Today at 1:52 PM

After months of predicting GOP victory, the Washington Post's statistical model now shows a 51 percent chance that the Democrats hang on.

Why?

The answer is simple – the Democrats are spending over $40 million more than the Republicans in battleground races. For weeks, our candidates have been holding on, despite a relentless barrage of negative ads – but we need your help now or it's over.

I know that times are tough, that's why we're fighting so hard to bring new leadership that will turn things around. But, if we don't rally together now – as a team – then we will lose as individuals.

Can we count on you? [followed by links to donate]
They never stop.

Every penny sent to the NRSC is fungible. They may claim to use it for one thing, but it can be put to use where the leadership thinks the money will do them the most good.

The money will be spent not "to bring new leadership" as they promise, but to defend its incumbents and even to funnel some money to Dems in order to defeat real conservatives as happened in the Mississippi primary for U.S. Senate. 

And in Kansas.  And Nebraska. And in Indiana two years ago.

If you have some money burning a hole in your pocket, better to give it to the beggars outside 7-11. They certainly would do less harm to the republic than the Prog leadership that is the NRSC.

I pray SKUNCs in both parties are visited by an Eleventh Plague.

Let me be perfectly clear on this. That prayer is an update on the Tenth Plague. What they intend to happen to decent Americans winds up boomeranging back on themselves.

Here's Your Sus Worshipers America

From this weekend's Climate March in NYC

Pagan-like Sus(trainability) worship. Priest RFK Jr wants to jail all non-believers.*
This is the primitive Pagan type worship that your American government is establishing.

Fight, fight, fight.
See this as an example suggested in my series about the evidence that an American State religion is being created in violation of the Constitution.

* Environmental activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. lamented that there were no current laws on the books to punish global warming skeptics. From the same link were more links that provided us an insight to the more violent ideas influencing RFK Jr, suggesting punishments much worse and unlawful than merely jail.

Misanthropic Tactic Number 1

I'm calling this tactic number 1 of the misanthropes because their contempt for "lesser" humanity seems affirmed each time they can get some dunce to believe that large gains can come from small falsehoods. That they managed to sell a Brooklyn Bridge to the dunce at little cost and great benefit to them is only the practical goal. Proving there are so many dunces is what makes them feel best.

How better to shut down discussion of a hoax than to assert
"Even if it is a hoax, the end result must be good."
That is the message of this cartoon.
Fix it to read: 'What if it's a big hoax and we destroy liberty, lives and civilization due our gullibility?'

Retrieved from the FB page of the Watermelon project that goes by the name "The Story of Stuff."

That Story of Stuff series of videos is a complete throwback to the early Marxist anti-industrialists. The Left could never win where the middle class was benefiting by being "exploited" by all that industry. Most certainly not the generations closest to those that had escaped European and Asian tyrannies.

But now with the CAGW CACC hoax's never-ending  propaganda by the SSM and academia,  they have numbskulls (with no inkling of the despots their forebears escaped from) thinking that they own the moral high ground if only they go along with the hoax. (The morality component and how it is used is explained in my essay series Fighting the Growth of Theocracy in America.)

Indeed, one such fool posted
One of my favourite climate change cartoons! I've got it on my phone for a quick reply to any deniers who start carrying on about the matter.
as if the squelching of freedom is a small price to pay for a presumed better world. 

Here's the answer folks. Consensus built by cominterns to provide them cover for their hated rule have NEVER made a better world. The greatest advances have been achieved by individuals. Individualism is despised by collectivists.

Listen up you Prog megalomaniacs. 

The billions of murders you aim to achieve under cover of your Sustainability project will never be forgiven.

SSM the Villain in Ferguson, Poll Says

Poll says? Why should anyone need a poll to know this?


Poll: Black & White Ferguson Residents Agree - Media Made Things Worse

On August 21 I posted this: How the SSM* Came to Be the Biggest Villain

If I can see it, anyone can see it. What's the matter American: gotta have a poll to see first if others will agree?

Damned cowards can't bring themselves to stick their necks out and speak the obvious -- for fear of sounding different.

Just because G-d did not strike you down for your cowardice doesn't mean He doesn't expect you to see your need to overcome it.

*SSM = Soviet-style media. This trait alone ought be enough to condemn them. In Ferguson it was so blatant that someone decided to ask the poll question. I'm sure the more moronic editors are proud of themselves when they should be fearful.

Fighting the Growth of Theocracy in America -- Part 2

I was going to follow up by adding some of the details I had removed from the draft in Part 1.  For now it should be sufficient for you to read what Og posted at Neanderpundit » The new priesthood of junk science, where he included much from that draft.

Instead I will provide you with some words that help reveal the nasty side of those seeking to establish Sustainability as this new state religion in America specifically; but ultimately all over the globe.

The alternate title for this post could be "Knowing Neither Morals, Nor What is High Ground"
Those working hard to make our society function like [Prince] Charlie's favorite slum aren't moving to their own collective farms. Instead they are transforming our society into the collective farm while pretending that their calculated destruction of our prosperity is smart and modern.
These words are from Daniel Greenfield's The Environmental Apocalypse published in April.

Five months later an anonymous convert to Sus worship felt compelled to contribute the following:
Fighting the destructive side of capitalist economies is not easy. So maybe the practices employed cause odd side-effects or don't pay as well as mining ores whose side effect is poisoning a town's water supply, but wouldn't you rather err on the side of caution for the sake of your kids and theirs when you're gone?

I'm often shocked by the attitudes conservatives have about the unknowns of global warming when they are so adamantly sure of the unknown of the afterlife. If you are good in this life with the aim of securing a place in heaven, why would you jeopardize the ability of those who come after you to have a good life when it is their turn? Whether there is a heaven or not, you will be good in the chance of going there when your time has come. Whether fossil fuels, CO2 emissions, etc. cause global warming, wouldn't you rather reduce this risk than to find out it is the cause and that you attributed to it? It seems so insignificant that people would lose money when it's weighed against your grandchildren living without food when severe droughts and lack of clean water or power sources could threaten the food supply. It seems that doubting global warming is like playing Russian roulette because the odds are in your favor, never mind that pointing a gun at your head is a stupid idea. 
This has very many incredibly off observations, so it would not be hard to fisk it merely for amusement.

For instance, since not all conservatives are religious it proves he's flat wrong about conservative certainty about afterlife.

Another example, more to the point, is how he sees caring for the environment as a liberal/conservative divide. That's a typical presumption of the indoctrinated Left. But it is over means where the divide appears. The Sus worshiper presumes any people who do not fall in line with his methods are -- when not cast as evil -- benighted at best; beneath him in understanding. His tone throughout his remonstration is bigoted: resistors are immoral by default; they can employ no reason in their defense.

That's only a small indication of the kind of danger inherent from a Sustainability state religion whose priests would help draft law. Much like Imans do with Sharia Law for IS.

Disagree only with his religion, he declares you a heretic.

Give him influence over laws, he makes you an outlaw.

Here is my response to anonymous, published on the same day his comment appeared. He was probably a troll as he did not respond.
"Whether fossil fuels, CO2 emissions, etc. cause global warming, wouldn't you rather reduce this risk than to find out it is the cause and that you attributed [sic] to it? "
Your argument relies too much on the Precautionary Principle. Using it, you have chosen fear of shortages as your religion. As such, you see it trumping all other considerations, including the most essential of America's promises to its posterity: defending individual liberties.

Not that you'd acknowledge it, but conservatives and libertarians wish to protect individuals from all religious zealots, including such as yourself who "knows" what's good for everyone else and their posterity.

Yours is a throwback to tyrannies that had all the rest of humanity in servitude of one form or another as symbolized by the broken chains at the feet of the Statue of Liberty.

Indeed, your fears of shortages are even more primitive than that. It's tied to ancient human sacrificing Pagan religions, the successful rebellion from which was endowed by  the Judeo-Christian ethos which your priests wish to eliminate and supplant.

Your views are uninformed because those who taught you your dogma need you to stay ignorant.

No poor anonymous: yours is NOT the moral high ground your priests pretend to stand upon. You are speaking from the pit of despair that Daniel, above, says that they've convinced you to accept for you and yours. And the actions you promote would throw the whole world back into chains so as to keep you company.

Do yourself the favor and break the chains on your mind before you find yourself thrown in the new gulags by those who trained you to be their useful idiot.

The Best Indeed

 I received the following cartoon in an email that reflected the cartoon's compliment to itself.



I fear my correspondent did not realize how true this may be. That is not because of the words of Constitutional delegate number 1, but because of the implied comments of delegates 2 and 3. Here are the summations of their words.

First Constitutional Convention delegate:
"I keep thinking we should include something in the Constitution in case the people elect a fucking moron."
Second delegate:
"By then, sir, it will be too late.
Even the most astute commentators will constantly resort to vulgar participles to make their points."

Third delegate:
"Even worse than that sir.
The people will never, ever ascribe malice to ills when they may project their own stupidity on the miscreants. Their re-enslavement will feel better that way."

Fighting the Growth of Theocracy in America -- Part 1


There are two fitting alternate titles for this topic.

1. Fighting the Establishment of a State Religion in America. 

It is important to this discussion that individuals who might be subjugated by such an influence established in law understand the wider definition of religion. Religion requires no supernatural supreme entity for its existence:
Religion: a pursuit or interest to which someone ascribes supreme importance.
As will be discussed later, the new religion of the time is the supreme need of preventing world catastrophes such as CAGW er CACC. And pursuing what is known as Sustainability.

But first, let us examine the opponents of existing legitimate and currently peace-loving religions: militant atheists and anti-theists.

While extreme atheists and anti-theists are well known for haranguing those who think of themselves as theists, and even those who merely are tolerant of theists, they never utter a word about pursuits or interests of supreme importance to other groups that are used to drive the growth of government.

Indeed, one of the most visible of these anti-theists, the late Christopher Hitchens, was an admitted communist. Funny -- isn't it? -- how a media-renown and eloquent man such as Hitchens never acknowledged how his views on a "just" society constituted a religion for him.

Ah, but so it goes with all supermen who bemoan the obstacle of individualists. It must be upsetting for them to watch "lesser" men "foolishly" seek guidance from concepts outside themselves rather than accept guidance from men who know themselves to be superior.

Establishing a state religion, where heretics may be punished by law, surely seems like the kind of  solution of which supermen would approve for ruling the hoi polloi.

And just as surely, this is what America's founding generation was trying to prevent when they added the opening phrase to the 1st Amendment to the constitution. 
-- Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; --

2. Our Need to Reclaim the Age of Reason from Scientism


Scientism: Belief that science has all the answers. Once a favored theory is accepted it is treated as if it were sacred. Any who disagree are to be stripped of their science credentials and cast out.

Scientism provides a wonderful tactic, when promulgated by a soviet-style media and Leftist bent academics, to move forward with unpopular policies "in the pursuit of truth as proven by science."


Of course no part of this charade is remotely scientific. Its purpose is to bestow the prestige of the science label on rationales for unpopular or unconstitutional government policies while simultaneously scaring most critics into silence and marginalizing the rest. When critics persist, then out comes an enforcement arm that seeks to stem unfavorable discussions of those policies not only by labeling them illegitimate, but by publicly discussing how prosecutions are being considered.

How the implications of this trend to establishing a state run religion in America threatens the onslaught of a new Dark Age will be discussed in subsequent posts.

Neverending Ploys for Ending Liberty


When I write about fighting the growing despotism, I see, along with many of you readers, how thoroughly the apparatchiks have penetrated our institutions and continue to run our lives based upon an ever increasing pile of lies.

So I often say we can only do that with G-d's help. When speaking to atheists, can that have any meaning? Yes, of course it can. I may imply nothing more than that we must fall back on physics rather than metaphysics, so that "G-d's help" wrings out as:
 "natural law has a way of building tsunamis of reality, like chickens coming home to roost, so that every stack of lies will inevitably be swamped."
Rhetorical question from Og: Like the global warming that has continued not to happen?

Yes, that hasn't stopped them from using The Lie as cover to steal our liberties incrementally.

Subterfuge

Something to ponder from a discussion on New Zealand racial policies at Crusader Rabbit.

KG says:
http://falfn.com/CrusaderRabbit/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif YESS!
It needed saying and it needs to be repeated, again and again.
Returning to live in NZ, I’m surprised most by two things:
The widespread anger and resentment at the special treatment and privileges maori are afforded, and how afraid people are of speaking openly on the subject.

The Gantt Guy says:
It really is quite palpable now, isn’t it? For a long time our political elites have fanned the flames of division and discontent, and yet they now seem surprised at the level of discontent they’ve fostered.

Pascal says:
“and yet they now seem surprised at the level of discontent they’ve fostered.”
In a politician, “seeming” surprised by policy consequences is a survival skill.

Discontent “fostered”

The Gantt Guy says:
Indeed, fomented would have been far better than fostered. One implies an active pursuance, the other passivity.

Prog Politics: 
A war on individual human rights carried out by other means.

More Evidence of SSM; And Even On the So-Called Right

The following headline demonstrates too well what I have been warning readers.

Dogs Feast On Ebola Victim Carcasses in Liberia

The writers and editors at Breitbart.com surely know that human remains are called corpses and not carcasses. It would appear that they are trying to convince the creeps in this world that they agree with them: that all humans are no different than animals.

That there was nobody at the website with the humanity of Andrew Breitbart is evident in that they do not employ a headline editor who would prevent such a disgusting headline.

I submit this as proof of the problem I keep warning about all our commercial media outlets.

Unless more people take notice and insist on decency, your silence will encourage more indecency! And when it's done by our media, the damaging effects are multiplied.

It's even more appalling that only one reader thumbed-up my comment about this headline.

How the SSM Came to Be the Biggest Villain

Though I've explained to a large number of people (some of you readers offline) how the soviet-style media (SSM) was the biggest villain in Ferguson Missouri from the start, I've got to commend Daniel Greenfield for exposing how the villainy goes further back than that. Very long indeed. 
Communists realized how useful race riots and the authoritarian backlash could be to their agenda. Terrorists don't just aim for the target; they also exploit the fallout to polarize a society.
That is what the left has been doing for generations since.
 

Everything from the Weathermen to September 11 became a means of polarizing the response while removing the context. The left plants the bombs and then acts as if the security men running around are insane fascists who could have no other possible motive except abusing innocent people.

Ferguson is more of the same. The left's army of activists and reporters troop down to the city. The activists start the violence while the reporters dramatize it. The coverage polarizes Americans and gives the left another hook for hanging on to power long after its economic policies have been as thoroughly discredited as those of the Soviet Union.

Law enforcement is an immune system. If we have an overdeveloped and oversensitive immune system, that's worth discussing, but it has to be discussed in the context of the infection it is reacting to. Until we treat the infection of the left, the country will be caught in the same cycle of crime and authoritarian backlash, liberals who open the door for criminals and conservatives who slam it shut.
  --- Hands Up, Don't Loot
Read the whole thing.

The Progs, from their 1800s start, labeled all who would react to their destabilizing as Reactionaries. That was even before their first attacks began. Mr. Greenfield never says that explicitly, but it is there as his underlying theme.

What is more, now that the Left has so thoroughly infiltrated our institutions,  it is they who are the Reactionaries. It is so because they wish to conserve their incrementally gained, unconstitutional powers. Their DHS has designated TEA Party affiliation and returning veterans as primary terrorist concerns precisely because they fear we the people as we attempt to regain some sanity and order not just for ourselves, but for the sake of our posterity.

As each individual encounters and bridles at the checks on our once taken for granted liberties, then it may be more common to see groups form to challenge their authoritarianism on one or more fronts. Then watch as the militarized responses are used against native born Americans and not our border crashers -- because it is the decent, hard-working people (and not any of the FSA) who are a threat to the Left's unconstitutional power.

This all needed to be said because whatever has happened and will happen, would not have happened to such an extent but for the villainy of the media.

What with all the special powers granted it in our constitution, it is that institution which needed to be on guard for excessive power grabs.

Instead it lauds it and has become a vital part in advancing that crime. Hampering other watchdogs, discouraging real justice by assisting those who invented the fallacy of "social justice," and inducing societal decadence by parading in front of its audience uncountable varieties of flamboyant indecencies.

Each of those affronts has made media strongly complicit in and essential to our societal decay.  This all was essential in the Left's attack on American culture, and the media in all its forms provided the means and developed the programs for the attack.  That is how our soviet-style media became the biggest villain, not just in Ferguson which makes their role all the more noticeable, but for so much more.

SKUNCs Stink- Proven Episode

Haley Barbour's PAC Funded the Racially-Tinged Attacks on McDaniels


Help me end the use of the acronym RINO. Rhinos are tough.
SKUNCs (Stooges keep undermining national constitutionalists) is the kind of label any designee or his potential voters will find hard to misunderstand as a compliment.

Well, DUH!

Whistleblower: Ultimate goal of NSA is total population control...

And who does NSA work for?

If you think the answer is "they work for the American citizen," I would offer to sell you a bridge, but you've already bought too many.

The opening headline is Drudge's of course.

And I don't think most people reading it see in it any inkling as readers of this blog know how I read it. The megalomaniacs are bragging. And goading the goad-able. And thinking their time to crack down is nigh.

My advice to you today is not what it would have been 30 years ago. Trust in G-d, cause there are no men currently in power who give a rat's butt less value than yours.

Corollary to Godwin's Curse


The Corollary to Godwin's Curse posted yesterday:
When one is living the consequences of Godwin's Curse1, adherents to Godwin's Law2 will then know what desperation really means.
1Godwin's Curse
There will be a point in time where events have so deteriorated that the value of any comparative arguments, such as how similar behavior led to the same repercussions, will be moot.

2Godwin's Law in short asserts
Mentioning Hitler or Nazi for any reason in support of an argument implicitly categorizes the speaker as desperate.

Godwin's Curse

Godwin's Law in short asserts that mentioning of Hitler for any reason in support of an argument implicitly categorizes the speaker as desperate.

I don't care who Godwin was or that he is credited with this assertion. However I will credit him with the curse since his attitude will have helped trends to continue.

Godwin's Curse:
There will be a point in time where events have so deteriorated that the value of any comparative arguments, such as how similar behavior led to the same repercussions, will be moot.
[**Updated** to include the corollary:
When one is living the consequences of Godwin's Curse, adherents to Godwin's Law will then know what desperation really means.]

I will have you know that this video helped, especailly at 30 seconds in, helped me recognize this curse.




Hat tip to Kevin Baker.


Oh, and one more observation.

Someone please list and point to places where Bill Whittle has called out RINOs SKUNCs for their back-stabbing and anti-constitutional ways of their own? 

Undoubtedly Whittle keeps showing us superbly how badly we are being served. I think he does so better than anyone else except, on some occasions, his pal Andrew Klavan.

See, this is what worries me about Whittle. I cannot quite shake the feeling that he is frequently laughing at Americans who are less well-connected than is he.

Goading in the morning, 
Glowering in the evening,
Loathing at supertime,
That's what media feeds you,
Sending lies out all the time.

Due Process Be Damned

The Environmental Protection Agency has quietly claimed that it has the authority to unilaterally garnish the wages of individuals who have been accused of violating its rules. Source
(h/t FoxNews)

A thieving, gobbling, ruthless Leviathan.

Let us put aside a number of items in the Bill of Rights that basically codifies basic human rights. Rights that say we should be left safe and secure in our effects except after due process, and even then without outrageous fining.

Instead, let us move on to the list of particular grievances in another American document of some significance:
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.
You can be sure that Leviathan knows of this sentence and where it originated. Could it be goading its targets? That is a rhetorical question.

It is not yet July 14. But I highly suspect that is what Leviathan seeks. That has always been the Leftist goal no matter that the Leftist is often consumed, as was Robespierre, by the very excesses he  unleashes upon the world.

The Left are lunatics. What are you?

SSM Episode #2

It is about time that openly noticing the Soviet style of Western media started to become mainstream.

Congressman on Obama’s Media Border Tours: “This is the kind of media that they had in the former Soviet Union”

What is startling it that it took a Congressman to say it. It confounds me that the most blogs continue to use MSM instead of SSM (Soviet-Style Media or some other fitting equivalent).

This headline was published by Jammie Wearing Fool. Now, Jammie is mostly a news and opinion aggregator, so many of his headlines are going to be repeats of what others publish. Nevertheless, why should such a statement seem controversial to him? Because he knows that an unwritten law has been breached? One about what is and is not acceptable in polite salons?  Maybe.

I get the feeling that many blogs are afraid of being labeled impolite or impolitic: too radical if they make such value assessments such as affixing labels to poorly functioning mainstream institutions.

How in the name of sanity can anything ever be reformed when glaring malfeasance of one of our important mainstream institutions are not openly criticized?

I know from experience that your humble author is hardly more insightful than other human beings. Privately I find ready agreement that, indeed, our news organizations are delivering propaganda that would have made Pravda blush. IOW, it's an observation that should long ago have become mainstream.

So why is it necessary for a news-maker -- in this instance a Congressman -- to break the ice before other blogs repeat the accurate labeling of our news media? Hell, will they even repeat that label now? I have my doubts.

And this highlights something you should find even more troubling.

When things get so out of hand that it takes a Congress critter to say something that should long ago have become mainstream, but is now published as a headline because it is seen as "controversial," then it may indicate that we as a "free" people are long ago permanently enslaved. If you are too afraid to say what is obvious to a fool such as your humble author, what chance is there that you will have the courage and insights needed to defend your liberty when all Hell breaks loose?

Bleg: Fight Crocodile Tears and False Flags

In response to the following Breitbart headline

White House Requests $3.7 Billion in Emergency Funding to Deal with Border Crisis

I posted
NO!

Every penny Obama gets he will use to repress those who protest the invasion he abets.
Should you agree with this, please go here and raise the rank for this response.It currently has 5 thumbs up.

Thank you.

The One-Way Ratchet Again

I wish I could recall where I saw it last week. Maybe one of you can refresh my memory.

But the answer to Ace's questioning headline

If Obama Can Ignore The Law Requiring the Deportation of Illegal Aliens, Why Can't He Ignore the Law Requiring Asylum Hearings?

is that the ratcheting away of protection for Americans continues unabated and rarely specifically laid out for scrutiny.

Who is protected by the law depends on the King's whimsy the unstated but easily recognized agenda of those who enforce the laws.

It is no accident that such blatant and brazen discrepancies continue to be abetted by our rulers' Soviet-Style Media.

 Bottom line for you Ace:
Equality under the law is now completely arbitrary wherever it suits those seeking ever more power and ever more longevity in the seat of power.
Period.

Left Influenced Converted to Liberty Influence By a Single Word

Exploitation.


A liberal friend on becoming cognizant of real news:
"...the conditions of these youngsters from Central America who have been shipped one way or another North (media still silent on such details and seems not likely to investigate further) to be shoved across our borders. An organized invasion. I don't think it would be going too far to call it a warped update of the Children's Crusade. What is going on here?"
I suggested, "I think the word you are looking for, to hang on all this, may be Exploitation."

And a fire lit in her eyes.

Please welcome the newest member of the growing resistance to DC.

You too may have one budding near you.

Just be open to him and primed to offer just the right word.

How to Sue an Imperial President

I would have titled this "How Really to Sue an Imperial President," but blogger doesn't permit italics up there.
And I mean Really! As in: distinctly different from the posturing gesture made by John Boehner this week.

Short rundown first.
  • On Wednesday's show, Mark Levin spoke about John Boehner saying he was going to sue Obama for failing to faithfully execute the laws passed by Congress in violation of his oath of office.
  • Mr. Levin said that Cong. Boehner likely would not be granted standing. That he wished it were different, but that the bar would be very hard to overcome.
  • Upon hearing that, I recalled that in 1997, shortly after Pres. Bill Clinton signed the line item veto that Congress had passed, Sen. Robert Byrd had immediately filed suit to stop it. I did not recall the details, but it is a fact that shortly thereafter the line item veto was indeed overturned by the Supreme Court as unconstitutional.
  • So the next day, while Mr. Levin was in his monologue about why the SCOTUS ruling about the appointments clause was a Trojan Horse,  I called his show to ask him if there was not something to be learned in the line item veto case about how to sue the President successfully for his extra-constitutional legislating.

The first clip was my laying the premise in order to get to the idea. He corrects a key mistaken assumption I had made, but he then patiently goes on to let me finally get my point across -- How was the line-item veto overturned and what can you learn from that?
CLICK ---> Clip 1 (~8 minutes long)
The second clip shows where it has dawned on Levin how my follow-up response to his answer was the exactly right way to move such a case forward.
CLICK ---> Clip2 (~2 minutes long)
The third clip is where Levin summarized what he's been thinking and it's got him gleefully hoping he gets a chance to bring the case to trial.
CLICK ---> Clip3 (~3 minutes long)
I must say it was very gratifying for me to have him respond so well once my idea hit home. Especially so because there was a moment there where I was afraid I was going to blow my chance to get my point across.
And I am particularly grateful to Ed Bonderenka for extracting the clips from the full podcast so I could present them in this shortened form.

Soviet-Style Media Episode #1

Washington Post Lets Columnist Dana Milbank Lie About Heritage Foundation

One of the milder lies:
Milbank just made up his anecdote about Gabriel "demanding" to know if the young woman was American. What Gabriel really said was, "I assume you're an American." After the studens says that she is, Gabriel says, "I'm glad you're here." She then goes on to make a point about how she wishes people would worry more about the government's response to the Benghazi attacks than how many peaceful Muslims there are in the world. 

Please RTWT.

Back? See, that didn't take long.
 
Note John Nolte's bottom line.
"The real question is: Where are the Washington Post fact checkers? Where are Milbank's editors? A major newspaper publishing this kind of smear is beyond bias; it's indecent." 

Indecent? That is understating the behavior by a long shot in my opinion.

That's why I posted this as my first of many examples of Soviet style behavior in the Izvestia and Pravda's of our time and in this country.

Readers are requested to send in additional examples of outright lying, dissembling and disingenuous reporting by the SSM.* Feel free to use my comment stream or my email. I intend to keep a record of them here under my label Agency of Lies and my new SSM label.


----------
*SSM is the acronym for Soviet-Style Media.

Readers know that over the years my terms for what most still call MSM have evolved. IIRC it began with Lamestream Media, then the Orwellian Ministry of Truth and Minitrue, to Ministry of Lies, to Agency of Lies (AoL) to Soviet-Style Media.

Sanity -- short lived?

 The Constitution is not a personal tool for censoring everyone's beliefs but your own.” -- Source
I was delighted before I darkly considered what higher courts are likely to next do. This feeling of sanity does not need to be short lived. Still, you understand that the war is not nearly won.


What YOU have to say on the matter can affect 5 or more of those black robed pretenders if you so desire. Maybe one of you can figure out how to do it and then do it.

Do not overlook the power of buzz.

GOPe Openly Acting As PROG COMMAND CENTRAL

Summary:
How can there remain any doubt that the GOPe is currently playing for the side that wants to sustain all recent violations of our Constitution's limits on governmental power? They are doing whatever it takes to keep the Prog agenda moving Forward. Provided is  significant evidence that the GOPe plays a central role all or part of advancing the Progressive movement. Readers are provided examples on how to observe and assess new evidence and add it to the growing list on how real opposition to Leviathan is being not just marginalized, but steam-rolled. 

The GOPe appears to have dropped all its facade  as the leadership of the "opposition party" with its efforts to keep Thad Cochran as U.S. Senator from Mississippi.

Rumors Of Impropriety Swirl About Cochran Allies' Entreaties To Democratic Voters



Rumors eh? Seems realistic given today's politics (war by other means). No doubt he expects payback for this.

Thad Cochran Hosts Fundraisers for Liberal Democrats


And he was certainly not the first, and he is clearly was not breaking new ground. Only the latest and more open. Just last week we had another example.

Great: Former Republican Senators Endorsing Democrat Senate Candidates

Who can be surprised at this point? It is simply par for the course when you understand what a kabuki theater postmodern American "adversarial" politics has become.

The GOPe is extremely consistent. They play at being stern with the Dems, but reserve their real venom for conservatives who stand for principles. This Politico headline GOP establishment backs Thad Cochran gives no hint how hard they are playing, but the story at the link is much more clear on the matter:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell bragged at an event Tuesday night that it was the “biggest fundraiser ever in this building” — a feat considering the building is the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
Look. None of us oldsters, who witnessed in our youth how constitutional conservatives railed against the "country club" Republicans, and who also know some older American history, should be surprised.

The Progressive movement began in the GOP. Understand how the Progs engineered their spread to the Democrats? It was Prog Teddy Roosevelt's Bull Moose run that split the vote against sitting GOP President William Howard Taft in 1912 to give us disastrous and tyrannical Prog Dem President Woodrow Wilson.

If the voters of Mississippi, including many Democrats who don't like Washington telling them what to do, lets Cochran pleas to Dem voters succeed at stealing the primary run-off from Chris McDaniel and legitimate Republican voters, then they are indeed the dunces that much of the world laughs at.

However, the rest of America should not be too smug either.

If Americans as a whole do not yet recognize how the Dems and the GOPe make up a combined party of power-mad Statist, then maybe it is time that the schemers succeed in erasing our liberty. We are either too stupid or willfully ignorant to put together the flaming evidence and understand how successful has been the subterfuge of this Statist juggernaut with their Leftist shock troops and Soviet-style media.
The above cartoon was first published in 2002. The knibbling at the edges has gone on for so long, what is left of our constitution today? Who is gonna impeach the Constitution violator in chief?

Haven't we let the SKUNCs win?

As for you arrogant bastards at the top: you may not care that you will eventually answer to a Higher Authority, but those of us who cherish what it is you are destroying do care for those whose life you seek to make a living Hell.

And so some of us pray that He makes you who know full well what you are doing to suffer for your hubris in this life while forgiving us our seeming inadequacies. 

Uh...Gore Et Alii Threat To Human Decency

The above headline was my reaction to these two Drudge headlines.



Drudge really has a knack for pairing up headlines.

That is all.

The Knee Jerk Pattern

I think provides strong evidence of double-think.

Here is an example.

At second of two community meetings last night.

Me: As you can tell from my comments tonight, I really appreciated what you said last night.

Bob: Thanks. The audience response was relieving. Sometimes you wonder "what's the use?" Too bad so few others got to speak on point.

Me: Yes. Come to think of it, could you hear what Adam [in the audience facing the moderator and far to my right] said last night? He spoke at length on possible solutions. But without a mic it was hard to hear and I thought I heard him hit on some great points. Too bad he's not here tonight.

Bob: Yeah, I like Adam. He's a good man. But I was too far behind and I couldn't hear his comments at all.

Me: Too bad he wasn't as easy to hear as you are. I guess it didn't help that he was chewing gum. I'm sure it made it hard for him to project besides muffling his voice.

Bob: [Laughs.] At least he didn't do it on the podium like President Obama did at the D-Day celebration. For someone with so many handlers you'd think they'd have helped keep him from making that mistake.

Me: After so many "mistakes" you have to begin to think some of these things are deliberate.

Bob: I'm sorry, I can't believe in conspiracies.

Me: [snicker] What does conspiracy have to do with observing someone choosing repeatedly to behave boorishly for G-d know how many reasons?

Bob: I'm sorry, I can't believe in conspiracies.
I could not help how quickly Bob connected a local man's gum-chewing to Obama's widely noticed display of it at Normandy suggested his disinterest or even contempt (as Head of State) for the event being commemorated.

So it clearly was on his mind. My guess is that it had already occurred to him that Obama was maybe bored at the least, and possibly even contemptuous. But he didn't like where that thought took him, so he discarded it.

His giving me such a quick and seemingly unrelated response suggests where he thought such thinking leads, and he engaged in double-think. "oh, it's a mistake that his handlers screwed up on." And he was also advising me, in a stern but friendly way, that it was best that I not think about it too much either.

Have any of you run into this sort of thing much? I mean, being a President can't rule out that boorish behavior is not deliberate. Cavalier at best. And there is nothing stopping ones motives from being much worse. And any rate, I think I spotted a fatal tic in Bob. LOL

Brazen Bunglers

Ever fearful of admitting their CIC's (Zero's) stupidity, his spinners have chosen to brass it out:

White House Aides: ‘We didn’t know that they were going to Swift Boat Bergdahl’

Charming.

Update:
Hillary, Monday, stated her position
'We try not to Benghazi any of our soldiers on the field.'
Okay. Okay. She said "leave" and not "Benghazi." But "at this point in time, what possible difference does it make?"

Well, it's all rock and roll to her -- and SOP for her chief adviser, Slick.

Too Big to Fail

We have all heard the line "too big to fail" in regards economics.

Now consider those words when wondering why Obama is effectively safe from impeachment, and -- well -- you know that house of cards metaphor for our financial situation?  Think of that as regards the advanced decay of our republic.

Anyone have an answer?

Upping the Cynicism Quotient for Democratic Candidates

The Prog War on Womb Man

is a war on humanity itself. Turn the table on the Progs. You who hold human life as sacred own the moral high ground in this at least. Act like you know you own it.

The point of this post was to get the pun out there.

Think about it. Understand all the implications. There is an ancient meme that connects woman to womb-man because it encompasses a role in which only woman may engage. Those who hate humanity (or fear it) have long sought to expunge as much as possible thoughts of providing another womb. Hence, the war on womb-man.

Rodger Family Statement: All Hollyweird Should Be Sterilized

The above headline is a fantasy, as it could never be uttered by the guilt-ridden speakers.

However dear readers, this fictitious headline is a more fitting response by parents who were truly regretful of their son's rampage yesterday. Instead we read their chutzpah headline garnered to generate sympathy from their like-minded Leftist friends: 
"Rodger Family Releases Statement Supporting Gun Control"
The story of how the film-maker father was envied by the son and the father did nothing to rectify it is not the headline. Nor is the fact that the sire provided his monster the opportunity to stab to death three of his friends before striking four others with his car was not even in the man's thoughts. But calling for gun control was.

Wasting Time Exposing Court Jesters

I must admit I found Ace's title intriguing.

Paul Krugman Gets Pwn3d Like a Loudmouth in a Woody Allen Movie


But before I could finish the explanation of the take-down of 'the esteemed" Paul Krugman I was awash with ennui. If that is the right label for the emotion. I'm not sure that ennui even comes close to the disgust I felt about wasting good logic on a complete hack like Krugman; or on any of the Progs that Krug fittingly represents. Self-satisfied, arrogant with not a scintilla of humility, and apparently paid well to provide red-herrings to opponents of Statism when they might otherwise be contemplating ways to effectively eliminating the tyrants.

The otherwise fine job that Ace and, if he's correct in his assessment, that Dan Kahan have attempted proves why writing about the bums and their pretenses is a complete waste of time. In my opinion the bums know they are wrong and it's simply their job to tie sane people up in knots attempting to demonstrate why the clowns are -- if one wishes to more accurately describe them -- well-paid liars.


After over two months of not writing a single word for this blog I think this bit might provide you an explanation as to why.

It is my opinion that committing murder or advocating commiting murder will not solve a thing. In fact it would only exacerbate our woes. However, I would find it hard to denounce people who feel that way today, even to my Maker. That our despots wish us to be thinking like that only further suggests that they may deserve to meet such an end so as to prevent the destruction of so many more people who are relatively innocent. I call myself agnostic only because I do not KNOW My Maker intimately. That He made the world work as it does -- beyond human calculation to make things happen that cannot happen -- I take wholly on faith. And it is because of that faith that I know -- I am NOT agnostic on this -- that today's tyrants seek the destruction of billions of people and the subjugation of the remnant.

In part I know this from the  more complex evidence like that of the masthead above. But I know it even more from the tyrants' claims to be doing things that they could never ever do (e.g., 2+2 ≠ 5) but constantly lie that they are doing. This is wrong and leads to disaster and needs to be ended, but it is something that one mere man cannot bring an end to on his own.

I pray daily that He will achieve it much in the manner that Pharaoh was dealt with. Let His wrath pass over the decent human beings and fall on those who deserve it. It's a lot to ask of He with Whom I have no intimate contact; may it be enough that I ask it not for me.

$200 Reward for a Verified Copy '82-'83 Reagan Speech

I've posted my recollection of this speech before. Too many establishment Republicans, including so-called friends of Ronald Reagan, apparently don't want the American people to hear this revised version of Reagan's 1964 stump speech.

On this 103rd anniversary of Ronald Reagans birthday, I am offering Internet readers a bonus.

Provide the world with the actual speech and transcript and details of where and when it was given, and I will gratefully provide you with a two hundred dollar bounty. And what is left of the free world too will be grateful too since it will demonstrate how the establishment so hated Reagan that they have been hiding it.

The following, published last year, should provide you with enough information to unearth this buried speech..

Ronald Reagan's Political Model

Today Is the 102nd anniversary of Ronald Reagan's birth.

Many revere the man not so much for his years in office but for voicing his vision of American ideals clearly and with enthusiasm. Among the best examples of that vision was elucidated in his 1964 stump speech "A Time for Choosing." Excerpt:

You and I are told increasingly we have to choose between a left or right. Well I'd like to suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There's only an up or down: up to man's ages-old dream, the ultimate in individual freedom consistent with law and order, or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. And regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motive, those who would trade our freedom for security have embarked on this downward course.


It was delivered on behalf of Barry Goldwater's run for president. But far more effectively, it established Mr. Reagan as a first-rate conservative voice in America.

Wait. Don't leave yet just because you think you have heard the 1964 speech before.

Some time in Mr Reagan's first term as president, circa 1982, while traveling in my car, I heard what I consider to be a very important expansion on that speech. I have repeatedly tried to find that later version, but I have not yet succeeded.

So I had a dilemma. Continue to search and wait to pass along what Mr. Reagan attempted to portray or pass along his words as best as I could recall. I made the decision a few years ago that until  someone answers my request to unearth the last version of that speech and provide the man's actual words, I would on various occasions publish it. It is what I remember about Mr. Reagan's more detailed explanation of the political mechanism that Americans find themselves saddled with and he meant for you to know it.

He clearly was attempting to provide us with a new model that could be used to override the Marxist model that he rejected. In my opinion he was correct in rejecting it. When we stick to the mono-directional model made famous by Marx and promulgated by our media, we are playing on the field of their choosing. Mr. Reagan offered us an alternative, and we ought to have learned to listen to him by now.

Please forgive me my inabilities to be precise. It is more important that those who love freedom know the essence of his vision as I recall them.

Thank you.

As best as I can recall, Mr. Reagan referred to a political platform. He likened what he considered to be the Marxist political spectrum of left and right to a see-saw of a platform.

The Left would gain control, and they'd pile up programs on their side of the platform. The foundation beneath the platform would begin to sink from the weight of their efforts. This resulted in the platform being tilted noticeably. It made the voters feel uncomfortable. So the voters would turn to the Right to straighten things out. 


Well the right might try to prop up the left side a bit, and refill the foundation, but in doing so, they'd dig a hole under their side of the platform next. Those who gain power always have interests who want something back -- usually in the form of legislation that favors them or taxes their competitors -- for their support. Thus the weight of these efforts and favors repaid cause the platform to tip to the right this time. That sinking feeling leaves the voters uncomfortable again.


So the voters would then put the Left back into power. And the Left would begin to fill in the hole under the right, but pile up more programs on their side and drive their side of the platform even deeper into the foundation of America's liberties.


And so it would go on, back and forth, Left and Right, Left then Right. Pretty soon the citizens of this great nation would find themselves in a pit of despair; a pit dug by the machinations of those who built up the oppressive weight of government. Government has been built up incrementally, one law after another, ruling upon ruling, practice becoming entrenched policy. And it was all done under the guise of representing a left or a right side, but both headed in one direction -- into the pit of tyranny. All those vested interests would insist it stay that way. Worse, as they'd get more demanding they'd cloak it with fairness. They were owed all that they'd "earned" for their efforts to gain "their people" power in the past.


At some point the vast majority of Americans will insist on climbing out of the hole dug for them by this political machine -- that single minded and ruthless incremental see-saw of power-seeking achieved by eating away at the foundation of our liberties. Taxes and regulations and busybodyness that is in no way justified in a nation dedicated to individual freedom.


Americans were passed a birthright containing the fresh air of freedom. It is what  our Founders had envisioned, and it is what our fathers fought to keep. And it's pretty much still been available to most Americans for around 200 years. If we do not stop the digging soon, somewhere along the way, Americans will demand to be let out of this pit. May God bless them then as He has in the past.

It is my opinion that the Tea Party movement is the realization of Mr. Reagan's vision. We will no longer limit ourselves to the thinking that we must choose to accept a Left or a Right.  We are trying to climb out of the Marxist/Statist pit dug by influential forces who've been incrementally overriding the restraints on their power. We are seeking freedom from the tyranny of those tired old partisans who claim to be working for our common good but are enthusiastically enslaving us and our posterity.
