The ten questions Hillary Clinton should be asked on Benghazi but never will

nowtheendbegins2The interview that Hillary Clinton did with Bret Baier & Greta Van Sustren was the equivalent of watching a little league team throw underhand pitches to someone in the Major Leagues. There was very little bark, not much bite, and just a few nibbles. This interview proves that the media is afraid to go after Hillary in fear of being called a bully or sexist. Hillary was allowed to sit there in her bright blue pantsuit and duck, dodge, and deflect. This interview was a golden opportunity to recant her testimony, catch her in her repeated lies, and most important hopefully have her snap on camera. America needs to see the real Hillary Clinton, the angry ex-hippy, with a fuse shorter than President Obama’s attention span when he is reading a teleprompter.

Here are the 10 questions Hillary should have been asked but unfortunately never will.

1. In March of 2012 US Embassy in Tripoli Security Officer Eric Nordstrom requested extra security for the first time for the Benghazi Consolate and recieved no response. Three months later Nordstrom asks a second time, and still no response. Why didn’t your State Dept. send extra security to Benghazi when it was requested?

2. Don’t you think if security details were granted when they were first requested that maybe the Benghazi attack might never have happened and four Americans would still be alive?

3. Why after repeated requests for security did your State Dept and the Administration remove three six man security teams and a sixteen man elite special forces team from Libya?

4. Why did you purposely make the situation in Libya more dangerous by repeatedly denying requests for extra security?

5. With your lackluster performance in the Senate and your abysmal record as Secretary of State why do you think voters should trust you as President when your record clearly shows you are unfit to lead?

6. Have you personally spoke to the families and loved ones of the four men who were brutally murdered on your watch? And if so, when they questioned you on your inaction did you tell them, “What difference does it make!”

7. Why are you, the President, and the entire administration forbidding anyone with first hand knowledge of what really happened in Benghazi from testifying? What is it that you and the administration have to hide?

8. When you had a chance to label Boko Haram as a terrorist group during your failed stint as Secretary of State, you didn’t. Why then should the American people ever trust you with their national security?

9. Did you decide to do this interview because your book is not quite meeting the expectations you had hoped for?

10. You titled your book “Hard Choices”. Did you name it that because it will be a hard choice for voters to support you if you run in 2016? Or did you name it hard choices because that is what you were faced with as Secretary of State and failed to make?

These are the questions Hillary Clinton should have been asked. Once again, we allowed the left to dictate to us what we can ask them. If these questions were asked two things would have happened. The first and most predictable response would have been that Hillary would have walked out of the interview. This would have been great! She would been seen as the limp wristed, weak in the knees, pathetic leader that most people who pay attention know she is. It would have been devastating to her chances which are already slim to none in 2016.

The second best thing that could have happened was she got angry and lashed out on National Television! That would have been worth the price of admission! Either way, she would have been exposed.

If you want to beat the left you have to smack them in the face with an anvil of their own hypocrisy. Conservatives can’t fear these spineless, yellow bellied, talking serpents. They are so easy to defeat its pathetic. Liberals have about enough substance of microscopic pond scum. When you challenge a liberal with common sense and intelligent thought they fold up like a cheap suit and cry one or all of these three things: racism, discrimination, or victimization. Once you figure out their playbook they either cheat, steal, or forfeit the game. If you think these are the questions you would have liked ask please share this article with others. Maybe someone in the Media will act upon it; but don’t hold your breathe.

What Michelle Obama would’ve said in her graduation speech

polishgazetteaDear fellow students and future government dependents. It is my honor and duty to impart some words of wisdom from myself and the President. We are so proud of all of you now that you have graduated with your high school diploma in Democratic studies. As you venture out into your Common Core initiated and recommended career choices always remember this. You didn’t build your futures, we did.

All you have to remember in life is to always feel guilty for any successes you might achieve and never turn down a helping hand from your loyal and loving government. We are here to help you. We are here to guide you throughout your entire life to the day you part the earth and go to the collective city in the sky.

Some of you will benefit from the hard work of the person sitting right next to you. So of you will be taking care of the person sitting right next to you. It is ok not to succeed. Striving to be your best is so 2007. Not everyone can be a provider some need to be receivers.

You see, Barack and I have always felt that welfare was put in place to replace jobs. Welfare was never supposed to be a temporary thing. Why would it be when you have all these strong, able bodied men and women who can and will work hard so that others don’t have to?

Remember kids, Capitalism is an evil rich man’s game. The rich didn’t get that way through hard work and dedication; oh no they got that way by exploiting and victimizing poor Black and Hispanic minorities. The rich don’t care about you, (even though they supply all of your jobs). They don’t deserve to keep their businesses or their profits.

So make sure when you go to work for one of these evil job creators that you use all of the skills you learned from kindergarten till now. Make sure you create a false injustice at work. Make sure you show up late and leave early. Make sure you find a way to eventually be fired. When that day comes you immediately use the race card that we gave you and use it to right the injustice. Contact the ACLU or Southern Poverty Law Center and tell them you were fired, not because of your lack of work ethic but instead because you were a victim. You were oppressed. You were not allowed to sleep at work or take your 2 hour mandated Union Breaks.

You see, the race card is your most powerful weapon. Use it often and use it wisely. The race card is how Barack and I became President. You see, we learned along time ago that victimization and claims of false oppression are the keys to getting ahead in America. We knew that our lackeys in the media would cover for us by calling out anyone who didn’t support or vote for us as racists. This is how we were able to paralyze White America with guilt and get them to help us fundamentally transform her in the process.

America is not a shining city on a hill. America is the land of injustice and greed. America is not the land of opportunity. America is the land of share responsibility. That is why we need you to talk to your parents and tell them they are wrong for creating wealth and prosperity. Tell them to sacrifice their futures and well being for the betterment of us all. And it is time for all of you to not fear government and instead embrace it. The only thing you have to lose is your freedom?

So please, grow up students and sign up for Obamacare. We need your healthy bodies to pay premiums so we can give illegal aliens free healthcare as an “act of love”.

Then once we guilt all the Washington Republicans into passing Amnesty by calling them anti-Hispanic racists our mission will be complete and so will Barack and I’s dream of destroying the greatest, most freest nation on earth.

And just think students you will be able to look back proudly knowing that you had a part in all of this! So, to all my new worker bees go out there, work hard for your government, and accept our helping handouts!

May Government bless you, and Government Bless America!

Barack Obama, liberal policies fan the flames of racism against White America

Common Core is the common whore of education

How gun free zones and liberal policies contribute to mass shootings

Why our Southern Border will never be secure

An armed society is a polite society

Common Core is the common whore of education

cudahyhowaThe pimps, lowlifes, and Johns of the teacher’s unions along with the radical progressive Communists of the Obama Administration are destroying our education system and the intelligence of our children in the process.

These diabolical new standards will be sure to create a lot more window washers and gas station attendants to service the well educated Chinese and Indian Immigrants who no doubt will run our businesses and create all of our jobs. If Common Core is not stopped soon the next generation will be less prepared and less educated and as a result have less opportunity and initiative than other generations.

Adolph Hitler once famously said, “He who controls the youth, controls the future.” This is no doubt why Common Core was implemented. It was not put in place to educate our youth. It was put into place to re-educate our youth. The leftist progressives in our government and the teacher’s unions can’t have our children think for themselves. They need little mindless drones that will buy into their Communist and Socialist garbage.

Liberals do not believe in the success of the individual. This goes against the very fiber of being a liberal. They would rather fail together than succeed individually. Liberals believe that individual success is somehow either racist or unjust and usually achieved not through hard work and dedication but rather by some sort of injustice. This is why class warfare is so prevalent in the Democratic Party’s playbook.

Common Core teaches our children to love thy government, trust thy government, and above all obey thy government. Common Core celebrates tyrants and ridicules heroes. It points out percieved injustices and hides the real unsung heroes who made America the great nation it is. The ultimate goal of Common Core is to create a new generation of radical Americans who hate their country, who hate the Constitution, and who hate our Christian-Judeo principles.

Let’s take a look at what our children are being taught by the Communists in our government and the Pimps and Johns of our teacher’s unions.

In Illinois, home of Barack Obama’s Crook County, children were given an assignment that said, “Government is your family and we are here to take care of you.”

Fourth graders in some urban cesspools in our dilapidated liberal cities are now taught mandatory Ebonics. They learn words such as, “Bitchaz, Ho’s, and Mobstaz.” Imagine that, teaching our children hood rat dialogue? As if somehow teaching this illiterate version of street trash is somehow going to prepare our children to compete with their Asian and Indian counterparts?

In Arkansas, sixth graders were given an assignment and told to “imagine that the Bill of Rights was outdated and that it may not survive in its common form.” What would you do to change it? Again, another example of the hatred the left has for our founding fathers.

Folks let me start by saying this. I have a seven year old son who is my world. When I help him with his homework and I see “Common Core” plastered all over it I get a feeling of sickness and sadness all throughout my body. If I EVER see an assignment like the ones I just described that are pure indoctrination and an attempt at revisionist history I will go ballistic! I will immediately forbid my child from doing the assignment and then I will storm into the school and DEMAND an immediate meeting with the teachers and the school administrators. I will do what I have to in order to protect the integrity of my child’s education. I will not sit back and allow my child to be indoctrinated in this leftist ideology, and I would hope you will not allow your child to be either.

Common Core is already starting to unravel. Just recently, Indiana’s Governor signed a bill outlawing this disgusting curriculum. Let’s hope other states follow suit soon. I implore everyone reading this to call your Governor and your state legislature and demand they opt out of this curriculum. Also citizens need to start petitions in every state that has Common Core and get the required amount of signatures to put its repeal onto ballot initiatives in all 46 states. Let’s show these criminal re-educators what the power of the people still looks like.

Obama’s speech: translated so useful idiots and low information voters can understand it

emptychairredoLast night was without a doubt the most vile, disgusting, and terrifying State of the Union speech in our Nation’s history. I do not mince words here. What the people that are paying attention witnessed last night was the first American dictator.

Comrade Obama’s speech was exactly what you would expect to hear from a Socialist third world leader. He did what all dictators do; he refused to take responsibility for his failures. He promised to rule without Congressional approval and he mandated, dictated, and cut off all debate; and he did it all in a way that most didn’t even realize.

You see, Communism and Socialism if implemented correctly can sound very appealing to an uneducated ear. His speech had a populist tone to it and he made it sound like he is a person for all the people. The truth is he is anything but. The most disheartening part of his speech was the fact that both parties actually clapped and applauded as the imperialist in chief boldly and bluntly told the American how he planned to strip away our freedoms!

Comrade Obama’s speech last night was less exciting than a deep sea fishing tournament featuring the old lesbian water polo and synchronized swimming team. It was chock full of lies and revealed just how far our great nation has fallen.

Let’s translate a few of his more radical and reckless statements:

First on the list is the blame game.

He said, “Our differences shut down government” Wrong, he and his cronies shut down the government and then blamed it on Republicans. The liar in chief even admitted that he wanted the shutdown to be “as painful for Americans as possible.”

“The debate is settled, climate change is real.”

So because the weatherman in chief must have consulted with God and Mother Nature herself we are to just take his word and believe him? Climate change is nothing but hot air. Some of the hottest days on record were in the 1910’s 1920’s and 1930’s according to the World Almanac. This was also at the very start of the Industrial Revolution. Hardly enough time to affect the weather.

“Whenever and wherever I can take steps without legislation I will”

What happened to checks and balances? They were put in so we could avoid having an imperial dictator like Obama. What about the enumerated powers of the United States Constitution? Why aren’t the Republicrats standing up and stopping this nonsense? Who has the intestinal fortitude to stand up to him?

“Congress needs to get on board.”
This was a veiled threat aimed at weak kneed Senate Republicans. Translation: “if Republicans don’t pass my Socialist agenda I will just pass whatever I want through executive orders.” This statement was designed for cover for Democrats who then can run around in 2014 saying Republicans blocked Obama’s policies.

Democrats are always blaming Republicans and calling us obstructionists for not going along with destroying the country with their leftist, reckless, agenda. They like to label us the party of no. Well if that means we are doing everything we can to stop Obama’s goal of fundamentally transforming America than your damn right we are the party of no.

When it comes to blocking legislation that brings us further and further along the path of Socialism we need to be the party of Hell NO! When Democrats try to pass legislation to remove our ability to protect ourselves we need to remain the party of Hell No! When they try to spy on us, target us, and deny us our freedom of speech we need to be the party of Hell No!

Americans have fought and died in foreign wars against the same kind of dictators that we now find in our beloved White House. We must protect this country from all enemies both foreign and domestic. The time may come when in order for us to survive as free people we will have to put a stop to this administration and this president.

I am not suggesting anything here I am simply stating that as Americans we are not going to live under bondage and slavery. This is why it is so vitally important that we win in 2014 and in 2016. We need to stay focused, vigilant, and involved. We need to tell anyone who will listen and show them examples of how this administration is limiting our freedoms. As Thomas Jefferson said, “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”

Barack Obama, liberal policies fan the flames of racism against White America

2013 was one big 404 error

Obama’s DHS: Drones, Hollow Points, and Secrecy

A hapless journey’s end

2013 was one big 404 error

clownWhat a year.

2013 was truly a terrible year for anyone who loves freedom, liberty, prosperity, limited government, low taxes, less spending, freedom of speech, and the right to bear arms, just to name a few.

As a country we have taken a giant leap towards full blown Socialism. This administration has curbed our freedoms in a way that could take decades to get back. They have strained our closest allies and appeased our mortal enemies. They have given our money to causes and countries that hate us while snubbing those countries that share our values. They have targeted those that disagree with them and rewarded those that do. They have made America weaker in foreign policy while strengthening those that want to harm us.

Here is a rapid fire year in review.

The Department of Homeland Security buys up billions of ammunition for “target practice”, The Boston Marathon Bombing, The ongoing persecution of Christians in the military, The Benghazi scandal and cover up, The rise of Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul, The fall of Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, and Paul Ryan, The Internal Revenue Service scandal, targeting, and cover up, The Associated Press scandal, The NSA spying scandal, the Fast and Furious cover up, Eric Holder’s numerous scandals and the radicalization of the Department of Justice, The First Amendment and Second Amendment under constant threat, The war in Syria where we knowingly armed Al-Qaeda, A foreign policy run like a Laurel and Hardy skit, Marco Rubik’s Cube and the Senate Amnesty bill, The Defense of Marriage Act ruled unconstitutional, The removal of Barack Obama’s buddy and head of the Muslim Brotherhood Muhammad Morsi in Egypt, The hero Edward Snowden and the Zero Bradley Manning, Obama truth teams set out to propagandize the youth of America into thinking he is God, Holder challenging voter ID laws in order to guarantee the continuation of wide spread voter fraud, Al Jazeera comes to American television courtesy of hot air global warming pimp Al Gore, Multiple shootings all in gun free zones including The Sandy Hook Shooting and The Navy Shipyard Shooting, The Democratic Party Government Shutdown, The horrific treatment of our World War II Veterans, the slicing and dicing of our military veterans pay, the suspension of Phil Robertson, the GLAAD Nazis, and last but certainly not least, drum roll please….

The absolute ridiculous, amateur, disorganized, unprepared, roll out of the worst piece of leftist legislation this country has ever seen. The Non Affordable Non Patient Non Protection Act. This medical albatross that this administration has now firmly wrapped around our collective throats will be the death of us all. This administration had three years to get their website ready for the roll out and it is still inoperable.

Then the administration had the audacity like the Communist heathens they are to run glowing, smiling commercials showing people how easy it is to sign up. This is the same type of propaganda you would have found in Czarist Russia or in Nazi Germany.

The Obamacare rollout is just another example of how the government can never do anything as good as the private sector. The massive campaign to sell this more expensive, less coverage junk is not only pathetic, but it is down right scary.

I call on all Americans not to enroll in this despicable program. If you don’t enroll they can’t achieve their goal; and if you are not paying attention their goal is a one payer system. Anyone who enrolls in this healthcare program is either a moron or a traitor.

The biggest lie of 2013 was the fact that you can keep your doctor and your current plan. We know that is not true and never was. Keeping your doctor runs counter intuitive to their draconian scheme. It was designed that way.

So in 2014, please be involved, be active, and pay attention. Do your homework. Vote out any member of Congress who voted to fund Obamacare. Show our government who they answer too. I hope 2014 is a better year for all of us, especially America.

The Feminization of The National Football League

imagesCAL5LHAZ
Only in the 2013 version of today’s NFL can a 6’5 300 pound grown man be considered a victim of bullying. What Richie Incognito did was certainly not appropriate but it was also ridiculous of the league to suspend him. Using the N-word and jokingly threatening a player’s mother is definitely in bad taste but does it warrant removing a player’s right to make a living? Jonathan Martin could have solved this problem the way most 300 pound lineman would have; by giving Incognito a taste of his own medicine. He could have lit him up in practice or popped him in the nose to let him know he wasn’t playing. These are grown men not 8 year old school children?

So what’s next is Richie Incognito supposed to make a public apology? Maybe tell the team and the media he will seek counseling and sensitivity training? Give me a break and more importantly, give Mr. Incognito a break as well.

The NFL over the past 10 years or so has really changed. The players are a lot bigger, taller, and physically stronger than they have ever been. There are linebackers now that can run as fast as receivers and quarterbacks that are faster than the fastest running backs. The game of professional football is changing.

New rules have slowly started to take over the game and have made it less violent and more cautious in the process. No longer on kickoffs can you have more than a 3 person wedge. No longer can you hit a quarterback above the shoulders or below the knees. No longer can you hit a defenseless receiver coming over the middle to grab a leaping catch. No longer can a running back lower his head and flatten a would-be tackler. The rules have gotten so bad many fans and even players are wondering if they should just put on mini-skirts and play two hand touch?

Back in the old days you could clothesline a guy and try to knock his head off. If you tried to make a leaping catch over the middle as a wide receiver you knew you were going to pay for it. The NFL back then had guys that would play with broken fingers, broken toes, even broken arms or legs. Now if one of these high priced Pre- Madonna’s has a hang nail or pulls a hamstring they are out for the rest of the game.

Football is a violent game. Players know and understand the risk that they take and get paid handsomely for it. The NFL is more of a business these days than a game of football. There are millions upon millions of dollars flying around on the field and the owners and the league are trying to protect their investments. Every time a player makes a vicious hit he is either fined or penalized.

The NFL in 2013 is a shadow of its former self. Political correctness and tolerance have now hi-jacked the ultimate tough mans game. It has become a corporate entertainment business much like Hollywood with the players playing the part of the actors.

Professional football is still a great sport to watch but it is less exciting now than in years past. The Super Bowl is still the largest and most watched sporting event in the world. Millions of people tune in to see the newest commercials and the elaborate half time performances; let’s just hope there remains more action and excitement on the field.

How Halloween can teach your children about Socialism

votenomalley2Yes, you read that correctly. Halloween may be a Pagan holiday from a long time ago but it also creates as Barack Obama likes to say a “teachable moment.” If this exercise that I’m about to give you is done correctly it should have a significant impact on your child this Halloween and will illustrate to them just how unjust and unfair Socialism can be.

A liberal’s favorite holiday must be Halloween. They get to knock on stranger’s doors and ask for free handouts. If you think I’m trying to take all the fun out of Halloween than you haven’t read anything yet. Liberals have a mindset that they should not have to work for anything and that they should be giving things that they never worked for. They have an entitlement attitude that is so nauseating my stomach is starting to hurt just writing this, but I digress.

If you have children and plan to go trick or treating with them try this exercise.

Go out and knock on all the doors you can in your neighborhood. Make your kids walk the neighborhood until their little feet are sore. Depending on their age you may only need to walk for a little more than 30 minutes. Make sure they collect a lot of candy. So much candy that they can barely carry it home by themselves. As soon as you get home dump out all the candy on the table and inspect it. Once you realize that it is all safe to eat tell your kids they did a good job collecting all the candy.

Before they can start enjoying the fruits of their labor immediately take away half of all the candy that they collected. When they complain and ask you why you took away half their candy, tell them because you didn’t have any. Their natural reaction should be to tell you that it is unfair. This is when you teach them the valuable difference between Socialism and Capitalism.

Ask them how they felt having to give up half their candy just because you wanted it but didn’t work for it? Ask them if they think it is fair that everyone must be equal regardless of their work ethic? I think you know what their answers might be. Then when they fully understand the meaning behind this exercise obviously give them back the other half of their candy. Your children will never forget this exercise, and it hopefully will help shape their views long term against the evils of Socialism.

This may seem like a cruel and unusual exercise but it is a necessary exercise that your children will thank you for doing to them later in life. This is a real life, relatable exercise that will teach your kids the absurdity of Socialism. It will also help to combat the leftist indoctrination from the Common Core loving union backed public school teachers that will spend eight hours a day teaching your children to be ashamed of their country, and to think the Constitution is an outdated document. So when your child is taught that Capitalism is evil and Socialism is good they will think back on that very important lesson they were taught one Halloween.

How gun free zones and liberal policies contribute to mass shootings

liberallogic101
Aaron Alexis was allowed to walk into a Navy Shipyard last week and systematically execute 12 people because his prior arrests for gun possession were never prosecuted and his cries for mental help were never addressed.

Instead of prosecuting Aaron Alexis on two separate crimes involving a firearm our politically correct judicial system instead issued him two get out of jail free cards. In addition, the mental health professionals who were supposed to recognize the warning signs instead gave him the benefit of the doubt and never shared their findings with the appropriate agencies who could have determined his mental status.

How did this man pass multiple background checks and evade multiple arrests involving firearm use and possession? Why did Aaron Alexis choose the Navy Ship Yard to perpetrate his crime? What drove this young man to commit this heinous act?

The Democratic Party will have you believe that this shooting was a result of too many guns in too many hands. They will have you believe that a complete ban on guns is the only answer to preventing these acts. They will blame it on Right Wing Extremists, the Second Amendment, and the National Rifle Association. They will give you every single excuse under the sun except for their own failed liberal policies.

What they won’t tell you is the truth.

In 1993 former president Bill Clinton issued an order forbidding members of the military and their civilian contractors from carrying their own personal firearms on military bases. Since this ruling at least 25 military personnel have been murdered as a result of this policy. I bet you never heard this on ABC, NBC, CBS, or CNN did you?

Since 1950, almost every single public shooting in the United States in which more than three people have been killed have taken place in what are commonly known as “gun free” zones. The main reason this tragedy occurred was due to Bill Clinton’s 1993 draconian policy on gun control.

Let’s take a look at some mass shootings that took place in gun free zones.

The last mass shooting on a military base happened only four short years ago. Nidal Hasan shot 13 people to death in Fort Hood, Texas in what is the worst mass shooting on a military base in history. Once again, Fort Hood was a gun free zone.

Last December Adam Lanza walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School and shot to death 26 people, including 20 children. Once again, there were no faculty armed on school grounds essentially making the school another easy target in a gun free zone.

James Holmes, who shot to death 12 people last year in a Colorado movie theatre did so by seeking out the one theatre out of seven in the metropolitan Denver area that was in a gun free zone.

In 2007 Virginia Tech student Seung-Hui Cho shot to death 32 students in the worst mass shooting in United States history. Once again, Virginia Tech was a gun free campus with a complete ban on firearms on school property even for security guards and those that possessed a legal concealed weapons permit.

In 1999 two students who attended gun free zone Columbine High School in Colorado murdered 12 of their fellow classmates before turning their guns on themselves.

There are many other incidents of mass shootings that took place in gun free zones but for sake of time I can’t list them all. The fact is that gun free zones kill innocent victims. The people that commit these crimes are well aware that they will not meet an armed resistance which is exactly why these cowards choose these locations.

If military personnel were allowed to carry personal firearms on base these shooters would have thought twice about committing these crimes. If colleges, universities, high schools, middle schools, elementary schools, and even movie theatres were not in gun free zones than most of these tragedies would not have occurred.

The reality is not all shootings can be prevented. But allowing more law abiding citizens to carry firearms will decrease the amount of mass shootings. If plain clothed officers were allowed to patrol schools and carry a firearm it will make these places less of an attractive target. We need more guns in school not less guns in school. We need more guns on military bases not less guns on military bases. We need more armed citizens at movies theatres, restaurants, shopping malls, etc.

The biggest deterrent to fighting crime is not creating the environment that entices it. Most criminals will take the path of least resistance which is why gun free zones are so deadly. If more law abiding citizens were armed there would actually be less mass shootings. As Robert A. Heinlein once said, “An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his or her acts with their life.”

Obama’s DHS: Drones, Hollow Points, and Secrecy

Barack Obama, liberal policies fan the flames of racism against White America

How the left uses identity politics and fear tactics to influence voters

Barack Obama, liberal policies fan the flames of racism against White America

moralmatters2
Barack Obama was elected the 44th President of the United States on a promise of hope and change. Hope for a better America, hope for a more prosperous America, and hope for a more united America. Along with his historic election came an even more historic opportunity. The ability to help heal race relations once and for all in this country.

But that opportunity was never taken advantage of. Instead of trying to unite Americans of every color, every creed, and of every socio-economic status, this President has chosen instead to use identity politics and class warfare to systematically and intentionally divide this nation.

Once thing is for certain, Barack Obama is not stupid. He may not be able to give a speech without a teleprompter but thats because he doesn’t have to. He is well on his way to accomplishing exactly what he said he would do; fundamentally transform America.

His complete disdain for America, the Constitution, and anything having to do with Christian-Judeo Values is quite remarkable. The Constitution to a power hungry leftist like our President is nothing more than a speed bump in the road. Who better to drive around those speed bumps than a Constitutional scholar?

The Democratic Party was very smart. They knew what most of the people in this country did not know. That America was ready to elect its first minority President. They knew if they could find someone who could appeal to both White and Black America; with the help of the media they could get that person over the finish line.

Enter Senator Barack Hussein Obama.

A half Black, half White Illinois Senator a majority of Americans never even heard of. The left introduced Barack Obama to America as a living savior. They put him on a pedestal as if he was the second coming of Christ himself. He became a mystifying, mesmerizing, public figure. His loyal fans were very cult like and much like the Manson family probably would’ve done just about anything for their new leader.

Barack Obama ran on a platform of divide. He said he would “tax the rich” and make them “pay their fair share”. Then he promised free healthcare, free education, free this, and free that. He was the modern day version of Robin Hood.

But like all fairytales eventually you have to wake up and realize they are not real. What the President didn’t tell Americans is that nothing in life is free; especially if it comes from the government. When you allow your government to provide for you there are always strings attached to their percieved generosity. Usually it is in the form of your liberty and freedom.

After his selection, (let’s face it there was no way the left and the media were not going to make him win) America’s race relations showed real promise. His selection gave most Americans new hope. White America was finally able to wash away the stain of slavery, and Black America was finally able to heal, forgive, and feel as though they were now equal.

But that all changed. Instead just the opposite happened. With millions of people out of work, a fledgling economy, and a tanking housing market, the President intentionally made things worse. Instead of lowering taxes, he wanted to raise them. Instead of cutting spending, he increased it. Instead of solving problems he created new ones. But the worst thing he did was start to dismantle healing hearts through discrimination and victimization.

His political positions started to alienate certain groups of Americans. His anti-business pro government policies angered the majority of small business owners in the country. His anti-coal stance was responsible for the loss of hundreds if not thousands of jobs throughout rural America. His contraception mandate angered the 77 million Catholics in the country. His numerous attempts to pass anti Second Amendment legislation angered the more than 80 million gun owners in the country, and his healthcare bill will affect almost every single person in one way or another.

A large ideological divide started to deepen and take hold and is now larger than the Grand Canyon.

The President and his cheerleading squad in the media started to protect him by pulling the race card every single time someone disagreed with his policies. If you were against taxing the rich you were for keeping minorities poor. If you were against increasing spending you were somehow considered un-American. If you were a climate change skeptic you were for dirty air and water. If you were against the government taking over your healthcare decisions you were for denying the poor medical care and for pushing grandma over a cliff.

A majority of Black Americans foolishly started to buy into these arguments. With the help of groups like the NAACP, The New Black Panther Party, and so called civil rights leaders like Reverend Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson; America is getting dangerously close to an all out race war.

The race hustlers and poverty pimps like Jackson and Sharpton have hi-jacked the Civil Rights Movement and cheapened its meaning. In the past 20-30 years they have managed to use the guise of civil rights as a means of victimization and as a result have cultivated a culture of hate. They use charges of false racism as a weapon against White America. Couple that with political correctness and a complicit media and you have the makings of a very dangerous situation.

When our media purposely hides story after story of Black on White crimes and gleefully goes out of its way to report on White on Black crimes you know you have a major problem. That is why it is so important that the new media continues to expose the old media. The old media thankfully is a dying breed. Like dinosaurs that used to roam the earth billions of years ago they will eventually become extinct. With the internet, social media, and talk radio the old media hopefully will become a thing of the past.

White and Black Americans overall have come along way since the days of slavery. They have survived as a people despite Democratic Party policies like Jim Crow Laws and segregation. They have managed to prosper despite being considered 3/5th of a person and denied the right to vote by Southern Democrats.

Most Americans are not inherently racist. Too often one’s ideological difference gets misinterpreted as racism. Black Americans must learn to forgive but never forget. They must learn to not judge this generation for the sins of another. White Americans must continue to open their hearts and minds to their Black brothers and sisters. If we can continue to open hearts and minds we can repair the country and heal the nation.

For the record I vehemently oppose this President and his policies. I am counting down the days until he is finally out of office. I think his policies have set America back at least 25 to 30 years. I don’t think he is qualified to hold the office of dog catcher, let alone the Presidency.

However, like most Americans I have absolutely no issue with the President’s skin color. I believe as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. believed that you should judge a man not by the color of his skin but by the content of his character.

Egyptians depose their dictator: When will America depose ours?

anonymousartofrevolution2The Egyptian people have spoken loudly. They were tired of the broken promises and the poor excuses. They were tired of the Muslim Brotherhood’s dictatorial ruling style and discriminatory practices against Christians and other non Muslims. They were tired of their President, Mohamed Morsi.

Millions upon millions of anti-Morsi protestors filled the streets of Cairo and demanded their authoritative dictator step down. When Morsi refused, he was forcibly removed from power by the Egyptian military.

So this brings me to this question. Can what happen in Egypt happen here in America? Should it happen here what would trigger it? Who will lead the revolution?

There is no question that what transpired in Egypt could also happen here in America. The question is will it happen and when? The Egyptian people had some of the very same grievances with their government as Americans have with ours.

The Egyptian people were tired of a government that ran roughshod over their rights. They were tired of a government that spent more money than they took in. They were tired of a government that borrowed money from other nations that future generations of Egyptians will have to figure out how to pay back.

Sound familiar?

The same thing is happening here in America. We have a President that has run roughshod over our Constitution. We have a President that has routinely gone over and around Congress by using an unprecedented amount of executive orders. We have a President that has repeatedly used intimidation tactics and targeted his political enemies. If Barack Obama is not a third world dictator then he should get an Oscar for his portrayal of one.

Like Mohamed Morsi, Barack Obama has presided over a bad economy and has made it much worse. He has spent trillions of dollars that future generations of Americans will somehow have to try to pay back and as a result has devalued our currency. Our faltering economy, high unemployment rates, and high energy costs are the same things the Egyptian people are also suffering from.

The sad truth is these two leaders have more in common than they do apart.

They both were educated in America. They both were former College Professors. They both have close associations with anti-American groups. The both have ties with radical groups and organizations that are hostile towards Israel. They both rose to power out of relative obscurity by promising some form of “hope and change”. They both have blamed their predecessors for their current failures.

Conclusion:

A leftist is a leftist is a leftist, it doesn’t matter who they are or where they come from.

A radical leftist leader like our current President is the same as any other radical leftist leader in any other part of the world. They all believe in the same things and they all use the same tactics.

They capture the hearts and minds of the less educated voters in their countries and promise the minority factions special handouts and big government programs. They use lofty speeches and utopian platforms to mesmerize voters into thinking that they; and only they are the key to a brighter future and a better tomorrow. Finally, they use class warfare and identity politics along with the power of the labor unions to sway the persuadable middle voters to support their cause.

Since Barack Obama has been President our nation has never been more divided. Many Americans thought that his election would help race relations and bridge the gap between Whites and Blacks. The truth is the President blew a historic opportunity to culturally heal the nation but he failed. The President failed because he has purposely tried to divide us rather than unite us. He is nothing more than an oppressed minority with a chip on his shoulder who thinks every White person owes him an apology. The President is a radical, Communist sympathizing race baiter who is unfit to even hold the position of dog catcher let alone President.

Barack Obama has created The Divided States of America. Half the country is dependent upon the other half to make money for them so they do not have to work for it themselves. We are a fractured nation made up of makers (tax payers) and takers (dependents). The country will change once the government taxes the death out of the makers to a point where there is nothing left for the takers. When the takers realize that their government benefits and welfare checks have stopped coming there will be a revolution. When this happens you will see a similar situation unfold here in America just like what unfolded in Egypt.

The REAL reason our Southern Border will never be secure

nicholasstixuncensored

The Senate on Tuesday by a vote of 54-39 rejected an amendment to the latest version of the Senate’s new immigration bill. The amendment offered by Senator John Thune of South Dakota should have been a no brainer to pass. The Thune Amendment simply called for the completion and funding of a 700 mile stretch of double tiered fencing along our Southern Border.

What was so surprising about the failure of this amendment was some of the reasoning for its failure. Most of the Senators that voted against it were Democrats; but there were also five Republicans, including all four members of the so called “Gang of Eight” that voted against the measure too. The so called Republicans were: Senator John McCain, Senator Lindsey Graham, Senator Jeff Flake, and surprisingly even Senator Marco Rubio. The only Senator not part of the Gang of Eight that also voted against the measure was Alaskan Senator Lisa Murkowski.

Senator John McCain said he voted against the measure stating, “We should leave that issue (the border fence) to the best judgment of the Border Patrol.” This is the same John McCain who in a tough primary challenge in 2010 actually ran a campaign ad in which he says, “let’s build the dang fence!”

Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina also voted against the measure which is not surprising because pretty much anything John McCain does Lindsey follows suit.

Senator Jeff Flake, who replaced a solid conservative in Jon Kyl, also voted against the measure. Unfortunately as of late Mr. Flake has been living up to his name when it comes to the immigration issue.

Alaskan Senator Lisa Murkowski, who routinely sides with the Democrats also voted against the bill. She was appointed in 2002 by her father, another Rino Republican Frank Murkowski who at the time was Governor of Alaska.

However the most surprising vote came from Senator Marco Rubio. As one of the leaders of the Gang of Eight he was supposed to be the Conservative voice of reason when it came to crafting the immigration bill. Mr. Rubio has been talked about as a possible contender for the Presidency in 2016. By voting against this measure he may have severely diminished any hopes he had at seeking the Republican Nomination for President in 2016.

So why did five Republicans vote against a measure that would have helped eliminate more illegal immigration? Don’t they realize that if they pass Amnesty they will be committing political suicide? Don’t they even question the motives of the Democratic Party who are so focused on passing Amnesty they are trying to rush it through as quickly as possible? Why are they afraid to make border enforcement an integral part of the process?

The short answer is they have bought into the Democratic Party’s scare tactics, and have misinterpreted the election results of 2012. They think that passing Amnesty is somehow going to ingratiate themselves into the majority of Hispanic voter’s minds and allow them to capture more of the vote share. This is a grave miscalculation. If we grant Amnesty to 11 million illegal immigrants the majority, over 60% of these new voters will be votes for the Democratic Party. Typically you dance with the person who brought you to the party and these new voters will be doing the twist front and center for the Democrats.

Republicans can win these voters with the right message and the right messenger. Granting Amnesty is not the solution unless they are interested in a government that will become a dictatorship under a one party rule.

So why is the Republican Party willingly putting themselves in a position that will lead to permanent minority status?

The long answer is the Republican Party of 2013 is no longer about limited government and individual freedom. The Republican Party of 2013 is about Globalism and the embracing of a New World Order.

For those of you who have never heard of the website SPP.GOV I implore you to Google it as soon as possible. SPP.GOV stands for the Shared Prosperity Partnership of North America. This is the real reason why you will never see a fence built on the Southern Border. The idea behind the Shared Prosperity Partnership is to create a North American Union similar to the European Union in Europe.

The North American Union, if it were ever to be implemented would combine Canada, the United States, and Mexico into one large Global Governance. In addition it would also change our currency from the almighty dollar bill into something called the Amero. Finally it would create a super highway that would start in Southern Mexico, run straight across the United States, and end somewhere in Northern Canada.

This is the true reason both parties are not serious about protecting our borders. This is why both parties want to pass Amnesty. This is why it is so vitally important that we fight this bill or any Amnesty bill now and in the future. If we somehow allow Amnesty to pass there is a real good possibility that a North American Union could be in our future.

Think about what a North American Union could do to our sovereignty rights? Think about what it could do to our Constitutional rights, especially our Second Amendment? Think about what it could do to our currency and our economy? Worst of all, think about what it will do to our deep rooted American pride? As Americans we are a very prideful people. We have always separated ourselves from the rest of the world based on our unique history and coveted status as the world’s most powerful superpower. Why would we ever knowingly want to give up that status or relinquish our standing in the world?

For America to remain a free country we must protect our borders. A country that does not protect its own borders will cease to be a country at some point. Any thought of legalizing illegal immigrants without first securing our borders could be a means to an end for America.

Solving the illegal immigration issue could be simple if we use some common sense.

First thing we should do is modify the birthright citizenship rule to only grant citizenship to the child being born on American soil. By eliminating citizenship to the parents of the child born here you send a clear message that just because your child was born here doesn’t give you the right to claim citizenship. If illegal immigrants knew that only their children who were born here could have automatic citizenship you would see a lot less illegal immigrants crossing the border to have children and abusing this law.

The second thing we could do is finally complete the fence across the entire border. Once the border is secure, we could build 2 or 3 maximum security correctional facilities in each one of the Border States right along side of it. We could even save the taxpayer’s in each respective Border State the cost of building these complexes by having the illegal aliens we capture help build them.

Finally, after we deport all the folks who have criminal records we give the remaining aliens a choice.

The first choice is immediate deportation or they would run the risk of being incarcerated in one of the maximum security correctional facilities they helped build.

The second choice would be to have them serve in our military. If they want to be Americans and truly love our country, than they should be willing to fight and die for it. After they have served in the military for a few years they should be granted full citizenship on the day they have been honorably discharged. At that point they should be entitled to every single benefit that natural born Americans have. That is how you fix the illegal immigration issue.

As a writer, commentator, and radio talk show host my job is talk about the important issues and offer common sense solutions. With all the dysfunction that permeates through Washington, D.C. it would be a miracle if any sound legislation ever was to pass. In the meantime it is imperative that we call our Senators and Congress members and let them know that we strongly oppose this bill. A majority in America and a minority in Congress can create a majority in Congress.

Let’s all sue the Internal Revenue Service!

thegatewaypundit2

Unless you have been living under a rock or in a cave somewhere you have heard all about the I.R.S. scandals. The Internal Revenue Service, or should it be renamed the Internal Rectal Service has been intentionally performing financial colonoscopies on Conservatives from all walks of life for the past few years.

The so called “neutral” and “nonpartisan” I.R.S. has been poking, prodding, and picking on Conservatives and Conservative leaning groups and organizations by stonewalling, delaying, and outright denying their applications for funding and tax exempt statuses.

They have targeted Tea Party Groups as well as Conservative think tanks and even some Conservative Candidates running for elected office. They have targeted Conservative Jewish organizations opposed to the Obama Administration’s hostile positions in regard to Israel, and even targeted private citizens whose businesses or private tax returns mentioned the words, “Patriots” “Tea Party” or “Constitution”.

In stark contrast, leftist groups and liberal organizations had their applications moved right to the front of the line. Some Conservative groups had to wait as much as three years to get their applications approved; yet some liberal groups only had to wait as little as three weeks.

Like he has done in the past whenever there is a hot scandal, the President has taken the position of “ignorance is bliss” when it comes to the I.R.S. scandal. He claims he knew nothing about it. He claims he is outraged about it. He claims he just heard about it on television like all you other folks. The liar in chief not only knew about the scandal but he probably watched over it like he watched four Americans die a brutal death in Benghazi.

Here are two recent developments that show that the President had at least partial knowledge of the I.R.S. scandal:

According to the Daily Caller, The Director of the I.R.S. Exempt Organizations Division Lois Lerner who has subsequently been put on administrative leave signed paperwork granting Malik Obama’s shady charity tax exempt status in less than thirty days. This should not come as a shock because Mrs. Lerner’s husband Michael Miles works as a tax attorney for Sutherland, Asbill, and Brennan. The firm actually hosted voter registration drives for the Obama Reelection Campaign; however somehow our Campaigner in Chief knew nothing about the scandal?

Here is more proof Barack Obama knew about the I.R.S. targeting Conservatives:

According to the Whitehouse.gov visiter logs, former I.R.S. Commissioner Douglas Shulman visited the White House a staggering 157 times, including 118 visits during the period in which the I.R.S. was targeting Conservatives. Mr. Shulman visited the White House more times than any other cabinet member, including corrupt Attorney General Eric Holder (62), tax cheat and current Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner (48), and head of the Department of Homeland Security Janet “Big Sis” Napolitano (34).

In contrast, Mr. Shulman’s predecessor Mark Everson only visited the George W. Bush White House one time in four years. So how is it even possible that Barack Obama did not know anything about the targeting scandal? Answer: there is no way he didn’t know. In fact, I predict it will come out sooner rather than later that not only did he know about it but what is more important is he may have likely directed it.

So what are we Conservatives to do? Are we supposed to just sit back and take it? Should we crawl up into the fetal position and ask for seconds? Should we be intimidated by the I.R.S.?

Hardly.

It has been reported that as many as 25 separate Tea Party affiliated groups have filed a lawsuit against the I.R.S. That is a great start, but it is not enough. It is estimated that hundreds if not thousands of individuals have been targeted. Famous Conservatives like Franklin Graham and even some Conservative Journalists have been audited.

My suggestion is that we file a class action lawsuit against the I.R.S. I am not an attorney but I would think that the monetary damages incurred by Conservatives would warrant such a case. Think about the loss of funding, the expense of the applications, the time and manpower dedication. Then think about how much money Conservatives had to pay to tax accountants, financial advisors, and estate planners? If we filed a large enough lawsuit the I.R.S. might realize it is cheaper to settle than to go to court?

My job as a political strategist and radio talk show host is to think outside the box and come up with answers if not solutions. Again I am not an attorney so I do not claim to know the logistics of how the litigation process may work. What I do know is it is my duty to put it out there so maybe the right person can smooth out the rough edges and put my plan into action. A good idea can only become a great idea when it is acted upon.

Why Attorney General Eric Holder is the worst in U.S. History

holder
Eric “fast and furious” Holder’s legacy of corruption, power, influence, and greed will be a tough act for any future Attorney General to follow. He is the only Attorney General in our nation’s history to facilitate the pardon of a convicted felon and fugitive. Like Barack Obama, he is a privileged minority with a chip on his shoulder and a fellow supporter of Black Liberation Theology.

But that’s not even the worst of it.

Here are the reasons why our current Attorney General is the worst in no particular order:

He represented Washington, DC in DC versus Heller joining then Attorney General Janet Reno in an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to uphold the DC hand gun ban. In his argument he actually said, “The Second Amendment does not protect an individual’s right to keep and bear arms for purposes unrelated to a state’s operation of a well regulated militia.” (Sorry Mr. Holder, but the Second Amendment is not negotiable or left to interpretation.)

He advocated for and justified the use of drones to kill US citizens even on US soil. On March 5, 2013 Eric Holder said this, “Drone strikes against American citizens on US soil are legal. After this outrageous statement the Attorney General started to backtrack from these comments saying, “Using lethal force against American citizens on US soil was highly unlikely. We hope no President will ever be faced with that decision. However if there was an imminent threat such as a domestic terror attack on the country similar to Pearl Harbor or 9-11 it is conceivable that the use of an unmanned aircraft could be used as a viable option. (Mr. Holder, the fact that you believe this should make every American fearful of you, this Administration, and our government.)

He Initially was a proponent of trying 9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in a New York City courtroom rather than at a military tribunal. (Sorry, Mr. Holder but this animal who maliciously murdered almost three thousand of your fellow Americans doesn’t deserve to have some Columbia leftist lawyer like yourself representing him, let alone in New York City at the scene of the crime.)

He blocked legislation in Texas and other states that called for voters to show picture ID in order to curb illegal voting. His ridiculous reason was, “It would disproportionately affect minority voters from the electoral process.” (No Mr. Holder it would stop voter fraud which you obviously support and no it would not be a poll tax either as most of the legislation called for cost free ID cards.)

He refused to prosecute and even dropped the charges against the New Black Panther Party; who on Election Day in 2008 stood outside polling stations dressed in paramilitary uniforms, carrying nightsticks and intimidated voters. His reason: He has stated on many occasions that he is unwilling to prosecute minorities for civil rights violations. “I think it does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line for my people.” (Mr. Holder, not only is this a blatant disregard for the rule of law, but more importantly it shows what a racist anti-white bigot you are as you selectively disenfranchise voters you deem unworthy of such.)

He filed a law suit against the state of Arizona over their anti illegal immigration bill, SB 1070 without even reading it first. He said the bill might lead to “racial profiling”. (Mr. Holder, SB 1070 does not racially profile anyone. Maybe if you would’ve read it first you would’ve known that.)

In February 2011, he announced that the Department of Justice would no longer defend cases involving the Defense of Marriage Act in court. He deemed DOMA was unconstitutional. (Wrong again Mr. Holder, where in the Constitution does it say that Traditional Marriage is unconstitutional, but Gay Marriage is constitutional? I think your reason is like yourself, a little light in the loafers.)

He was found in contempt of Congress by the House Oversight Committee for lying, misleading, and stonewalling the investigation by withholding information concerning the gun running scandal Operation Fast and Furious. (Mr Holder, I hope you can sleep at night with the blood of Border Agent Brian Terry on your hands as well as numerous others who died by the guns you provided to Mexican Drug Cartels.)

His most recent scandal is unfolding as I write this. His Justice Department has acquired illegal phone records from many reporters and editors at the left leaning Associated Press. This was in retaliation to a story the Associated Press ran about a Covert Mission in Yemen that foiled the plot of the so called “underwear” bomber.

The Obama Administration lied to the American people when they said publicly that they had no imminent or credible threat of a coming terrorist attack that was to coincide with the anniversary of Osama Bin Laden’s death. This was not true and the Associated Press knew they were not telling the truth. In fact, the Administration pleaded with the Associated Press not to run the story because it was in an Election year.

As soon as the Associated Press ran the story the Administration illegally seized over two months of phone records. (Mr. Holder, your disgusting intimidation tactics make you unfit to hold the position in our government that you do. I can only hope and pray that you, your boss, and all of his Socialist, Marxist, cohorts eventually go down with the ship. If the Republicans had any testicular fortitude you would all be wearing black and white stripes in Leavenworth.)

The Constitution says we need to keep America safe from all enemies both foreign and domestic. Throughout our history we have fought foreign enemies in far away lands but now we have an enemy within our own borders and inside our government.

America is the last great hope on earth; without our compassion and guidance the world would be a very dark and dismal place. America has been the leader in prosperity, freedom, liberty, and self governance since its founding. The Obama Administration is like a cancer and its supporters are the carriers of the disease known as liberalism. If we don’t stop them soon they will destroy what little we have left in regard to liberty and freedom. How do you destroy the greatest, most powerful country on earth? Just ask the Obama Administration and Eric Holder; they seem to have all the answers.

A hapless journey’s end

mirror.co.uk2

What happened in Boston last week was truly a tragedy. Two Muslim brothers detonated two bombs at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Unless you have been living in a cave or under a rock somewhere you already know what happened. The sad fact is the Obama Administration, the FBI, and the entire intelligence community failed to protect the American people. Three people died and over 175 were injured by two brothers practicing their religion of peace.

Throughout history people of all different faiths have killed each other in the name of religion. Millions of people have perished in religious persecutions world wide and it unfortunately continues to this day. This article is not intended to bash one faith over another. It is intended to expose one of the biggest propaganda statements of all time; that Islam is a religion of peace.

Hard core leftist apologists will tell you till you are blue in the face that the word “Jihad” means spiritual struggle. This is a false statement. If this were true, then why are people with disabilities and debilitating deceases not included in the so called “spiritual struggle”? Apologist’s aside, Jihad means “Holy War” according to the Quran.

The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to Jihad, or Holy War with the Infidels and the non-believers. The goal of the Islamic faith is to create a Caliphate or Islamic world wide rule. There is no room for any other religion especially Christianity and Judaism. There is also no spiritual struggle.

According to the Quran, Islam coupled with Sharia law is the only faith that matters. There is no tolerance or recognition of other faiths. In fact, the word infidel literally means to reject one’s faith.

Let’s take a look at some of the more violent verses from the Quran.

(3:56) “As to those who reject faith I will punish thee with terrible agony in this world and in the hereafter.”

(66:9) “O’ Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey’s end.”

(2:191-193) “Slay them where ever ye may find them, and drive them out from where ever they may hide. For persecution of Muslims is worse than slaughter of non-believers and the Infidels.”

And my personal favorite:

(8:12) “I will cast terror into the hearts of the non-believers. Therefore smite their necks and strike off their heads.”

Not all Muslims are bad people. There are many peacful Muslims who have spoken out against this type of extremism. The problem is there voices are far and few between. Peaceful Muslims unfortunately have been silent for far too long. They are either afraid to speak out or sympathetic to the more extreme voices in their faith.

How can a religion be considered peaceful if it does not recognize other faiths? If Islam is truly a peaceful religion than why are their so many verses preaching violence against others who practice a different faith?

Since 1970, it is estimated that over 80% of terroristic acts have been perpetrated by Muslims. There are the occasional acts of terror by White Supremacist Groups and even by Fundamentalist Christians however they occur less frequent and make up a very small portion of terrorism as a whole.

In Israel alone there have been over 75 separate terrorist attacks in the past 30 years. From suicide bombings to car bombs and rockets to kidnappings, the Israeli people have been feeling the love from the religion of peace for years.

Let’s look at some other acts of terrorism committed by followers of the religion of peace.

February 26, 1993- First World Trade Center bombing

October 12, 2000- Bombing of the USS Cole

September 11, 2001- Hijacked planes take out the WTC Towers and The Pentagon

September 11, 2012- Our embassy in Benghazi was attacked

April 15, 2013- Bombing of The Boston Marathon

All of these horrible acts were perpetrated by those who claim to practice the religion of peace.

Americans need to stop worrying about God Fearing Christians and instead start worrying about radical Jihadists. After all, it is not Christians that are strapping bombs to their waist’s and blowing people up in the name of their God. Shame on our Department of Homeland Security for labeling Evangelical Christians as a hate group. Big Sis needs to be watching our mosques not our churches.

Once again, I want to reiterate that not all Muslims are bad people. There are many Muslims who reject the narrow minded interpretation of many parts of the Quran. The problem is most of them who reject the more violent interpretation do not speak out loudly enough.

America needs a lot more Muslim voices to speak out and strongly reject the violence that is preached against men, women, and children of other faiths. We also need the apologists on the left to take their heads out of the sand and recognize that we are under attack from radical extremists.

According to the left in this country there is no such thing as Radical Islam. The blame America first crowd thinks we brought this upon ourselves. Give me a break.

The pathetic left can’t even muster up the courage to use the word terrorism. They say they are conducting “over seas contigency operations” instead. When their is an attack on our homeland they call it a “man made disaster”.

If the left truly believed in tolerance they would also speak out against the intolerance of the religion of peace. Instead they would rather attack truly peaceful Christians just because they disagree with them.

The truth is if we do not stand firm against extremism now than it will consume us later. We need to call it what it is, terrorism. Changing the words we use will not make the act any less frequent or less damaging. In fact it will only invite more terrorism. We can not stand down and accept acts of terrorism as some kind of new normal. We must band together and fight evil wherever it may be. You do not gain peace through weakness, you gain peace through strength.

A fractured party is a losing party

Why is it that when Democrats govern like Socialist dictators they win, but when Republicans govern like Democrats they lose? The sad part is that both parties govern in such a similar capacity that it is hard to tell them apart these days. Both parties have an insatiable appetite for spending; and fiscal discipline in Washington is as rare as a snowstorm in Phoenix.

Neither party has shown the ability to govern the American people the way our Constitution originally intended. One could argue that we technically have not had a Democratic President in office since John F. Kennedy; or a true Republican President since Ronald Reagan. What we have had are a bunch of elitist globalists from both parties hell bent on relinquishing our sovereignty and leading us down the path to a New World Order.

Make no mistake about it, the Republican Party is still head and shoulders above the Communist sympathizing Democratic Party of 2013. Our current occupier of the White House creates a clear and present danger to the very survival of our nation; a Marxist law professor with enough common sense to fill the head of a pin.

This article is not intended to bash Democrats and the President; although that certainly is a favorite past time of mine. I will show my readers how the Democratic Party divides and conquers the Republican Party by pressuring the political class in Washington to go along with their agenda knowing full well it will anger the base of the Republican Party and help create long lasting divisions between the party brass.

Here is how it works.

The Republican Party has three distinct ideological wings. It is made up of social and fiscal Conservatives, social Libertarian and fiscal Conservatives, and socially Liberal and fiscal Conservatives.

The Democratic Party also has three distinct ideological wings. It is made up of social Conservative and fiscal Liberals, socially liberal and socially fiscal Liberals, and outright leftist Socialists; who never met a tax that was too high or an expenditure that was too low.

Each party has a political or establishment class and an activist grassroots class. The establishment classes for each party also tend to operate in very different ways.

For example, establishment Republicans tend to be much more moderate than the more conservative activist base they represent. The establishment Democrats tend to be more liberal than the people they represent too; however sadly that is changing.

America has always been considered a center right nation. Most people are fiscally conservative and socially liberal. This is why the share of Independent voters has increased in every election. The truth is 40% of America will vote Republican and 40% will vote Democratic. That leaves 20% of voters with the fate of the nation in their hands every four years.

Democrats understand this much better than Republicans and win elections because they know how to fool these voters with a false sense of security. The Democratic Party knows that most voters are socially liberal and fiscally conservative. That is why they continue to run on tax cuts for the middle class and abortion on demand. They understand class warfare and identity politics much better than Republicans do. They also know how to overwhelm Republicans in Congress and get them to submit to their iron will.

The definition of bi-partisanship in Washington is when a Republican checks their morals, convictions, and principles at the door in order to sign onto leftist legislation so they can tell their constituents they accomplished something. When establishment Republicans go over to the dark side they get an earful from their more conservative constituents. We let our so call republican representatives know how disappointed we are in their decisions by not contributing to their reelection campaigns and ultimately protesting them by staying home on Election Day.

This is how the Democratic Party wins.

A Democratic Candidate could run for office with a criminal record and strangle a live kitten on national television and because they have a D before their name could still win an election. The reason is it’s not about the person; it’s about the party. It is about the promise not the delivery. It is about the artificial safety nets they claim to spring; not the harsh reality of how government bashes you in the face and slams your head against the pavement. It is the romanticism, fairytale, and utopian vision of equality, prosperity, and shared responsibility that most voters fall for.

Republicans see their party much different. They are looking for something that does not exist in politics, and that is purity. There is no such animal in politics and it is about time Republicans finally realize and more importantly except this. We definitely want our representatives to align with us and be our advocates rather than our adversaries; however our first objective needs to be winning elections first.

The difference is that if Democratic voters do not agree with their candidate on the major issues it is not a deterrent for them to sit home on Election Day. The reason for this is they would rather vote for a Democratic candidate they disagree with rather than a Republican candidate they vehemently oppose.

Generally speaking, the Democratic Party has become an unprincipled, unscrupulous, and immoral party. The Republican Party has drifted so far to the left that it is getting harder to tell them both apart. There are still a few Republican members left in Washington that will put their principles before their party but unfortunately their numbers are dwindling.

From a purely strategically speaking standpoint, Republicans, Conservatives, and Independents need to start voting like Democrats. Our number one goal must be to win elections and wrestle away control of the purse strings from the tax and spend liberals in Congress.

This means we need to start voting for all Republicans regardless of what spectrum on the ideological wing they may be on. Once we gain power than we can start replacing the Republicans that do not support the ideas and values of the party. If we continue the infighting and the division we will continue to be in the minority for years to come.

We need to run candidates that will take bold but electorate friendly positions. Positions that are center right like term limits, auditing the Federal Reserve, and making Congress part time.

When it comes to wedge issues like abortion and Gay Marriage we need to understand that the Democratic Party is always going to try to use those issues to divide and conquer us. We need to start exposing the left on all the lies they have perpetrated on the American people. Healthcare is sky rocketing, the economy is in a constant downward spiral, and taxes and spending are at the highest levels in history.

There is so much for Republicans to use against Democrats that I could write an entire strategy guide myself. Why the Republicans in Congress have decided to remain silent is a mystery. They have become a disgrace and you would think they would be doing everything they could to expose this administration but they’re not.

In order to change the party we need to be back in the majority. You cannot change the party from a position of weakness. We will never get an opportunity to change the party from the inside out while we are looking from the outside in. A fractured party is a losing party, the Democrats know this and it is about time Republicans figure it out too.
