Expect the Institutionalized “progressive” Left to Come Out in Force

Comedian Bill Maher gave $1 million to one of President Obama’s SuperPACs. Actor Alec Baldwin’s on record saying that Obama’s re-election ‘In the Bag’. Lanny Davis, who writes for The Hill, is busy covering up for U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder during Congressional investigations into the murder of U.S. Border Agent Brian Terry and hundreds of Mexican citizens resulting from the Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. MSNBC stopped inviting Conservative author Matt Lewis to contribute on-air after the site he works for, the Daily Caller, reported about the influence George Soros funded Media Matters for America wields over that Network. “Coincidentally”, Conservative pundit Pat Buchannan was also dropped by MSNBC around that same time.

As is always the case with any non-white or non-male Republican star, the institutionalized “progressive” left media is focused on Florida Senator Marco Rubio who, being a Hispanic from a crucial swing state, poses an existential threat to the re-election of Barack Obama. Not surprisingly, openly leftist actress Eva Longoria joined in the attack by saying “Marco Rubio has been coming up with some silly stuff that we really have to sort through”.

Meanwhile, the American mainstream media remains silent after a BarackObama speech where he joked: “I went to the speaker’s home town,” referring to a trip to House Speaker John Boehner’s battleground state of Ohio, “stood under a bridge that was crumbling.” Somebody in the crowd shouted, “Let him drive on it!”

Cue the sound of crickets.

This is the same press that had a field day back in 2008 when, on one or two occasions, a few folks attending McCain/Palin rallies shouted ugly comments from the crowd. These incidents were reported as major, top of the broadcast, front-page news. Repeatedly, with frequency and vigor.

During nationwide May Day demonstrations by OWS, occupiers themselves willing admitted that their protesters were taking marching orders from big labor and public service unions like the AFL-CIO and SEIU.

One of the leaders of the Occupy Cleveland movement, Brandon Baxter, was arrested for a terrorist plot to bomb a bridge in Cleveland Ohio. The plot has been directly linked to the Occupy movement. The names and the official complaint have been confirmed.

There were multiple incidences of violence around the country, with occupiers shouting the likes of “Pigs Go Home” and “Down with Capitalism”. With tear gas in Oakland, violence and vandalism in Seattle, SEIU members disrupting Los Angeles International Airport, with Occupiers calling themselves anarchists and hurling Molotov Cocktails; despite all evidence to the contrary, American taxpayer funded NPR is still calling the violent Occupy protests “restrained”.

By comparison, when the Tea Party was the topic de jour, Democrats and their “progressive” Party Pravda lapdogs were quick to blame the Tea Party for each and every violent incident around the country. More than one fringe leftist whack-job, impersonating responsible journalists on American television’s most irresponsible cable network, held Sarah Palin personally responsible for the Gabby Giffords shooting in Tucson Arizona. Their supposed rationale was her use of the word target when discussing campaign strategy. Never mind that in similar applications, the word “target” had been used frequently by members of the Democratic Party. Members of the institutionalized “progressive” left smear machine somehow forgot to inform the public that “target” was first used as political jargon by 1980 Democratic presidential candidate Walter Mondale’s political strategist Bob Beckel.

A review of the visitor’s log confirms that AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and former SEIU President Andy Stern have been frequent visitors to the White House. SEIU alone spent approximately $60.7 million to help elect Barack Obama to the White House in 2008. SEIU expects a return on their investment. Barack Obama was quick to embrace the Occupy movement when he saw his poll numbers sliding.

Before this November’s elections American voters should duly note such connections.

In case you haven’t noticed, or have yet to become fully convinced, bias within the institutionalized “progressive” left media is both very real and pervasive. With the presidential general election campaign about to get into full swing, expect it to get much, much worse. Truth coming from the institutionalized “progressive” left’s smear machine is as likely as them reporting that Elizabeth Warren can’t prove she has Cherokee blood in her veins.

Did You Know?

You may feel as though you are well aware of the events that seem to shape the world today? Perhaps you feel as though they are beyond your power to change?  And then again, you might be inclined as many American’s are, to state you don’t care about politics.  In either case even the most diligent American would have a hard time keeping up with all the rhetoric on a daily basis that continues to plague the world we live in. It hard to keep up on the facts, and even harder to recognize what is fact and what is fiction on the Hill, when integrity seems to be a thing of the past.  The reality is, despite the attempts to dismiss the threat of radical Islam by the media and government officials, Islam is very much close to home and a real threat to our national security.  The majority of people are under the impression there is no cause for alarm; they fail to recognize the depth of the infiltration of Islam which is deeply rooted in our U.S. culture, society, and government.

Ironically, probably 99 percent of American’s probably don’t know most of what I am about to tell you. If they do know, and discuss it publicly, they are either criticized, dismissed, or marginalized.  To a certain extent we have become complacent and have allowed our government to spiral out of control while those we elect have their own self-serving agendas.  Career Politicians seem to feel as tho they are the voice for us, yet the words they choose behind close doors would probably make most of us cringe.

This year, and election year, you may want to take a closer look at who your voting for because not caring, lack of interest, or the other typical excuse “I’m not interested in politics” are all reasons that could contribute to the downfall of the United States as you believe it to be.   As an American you have a moral, ethical, and civic duty to care about the people you put into office, because they not only effect you, they have a significant impact on generations to come – not caring, lack of interest, or whatever the reason is what got us here in the first place.

Hail to the Narcissist in Chief!

NarcissistPsychoanalysis. a person suffering from narcissism, deriving erotic gratification from admiration of his or her own physical or mental attributes.

NarcissismPsychoanalysis. erotic gratification derived from admiration of one’s own physical or mental attributes, being a normal condition at the infantile level of personality development.

I figured it was best to clear the air, and point out the meanings of those two words from a psychoanalytical point of view. (For those that are particular about such things, those are the second definitions offered at Dictionary.com, as the first were simple English definitions, as opposed to the clinical ones.)

Now, there is no shortage of complaints from the right about the smug, self-righteous attitude citizens of this nation see daily out of the White House. The President has arguably raised this to an art-form, not that this is a good thing. After working far too many political campaigns over a span of over 20 years, I learned one very important fact – sane people do not run for public office. That is not to say that they are all ready for a padded room, but they are all at least a little mentally unbalanced. One needs to be, in order to be willing to have one’s life placed under a microscope by the masses, with the high probability that every skeleton in one’s closet will be dragged out for all to see. And the most common mental “quirk” among politicians is arguably narcissism. It makes sense, because if one doesn’t love oneself a great deal, it is unlikely that individual will manage being berated daily by detractors without acquiring another mental malady – depression.

However, in Obama’s case, the narcissism is quite a bit more severe than in most other politicians. And now that the tide is gradually turning against him, it is apparently causing him to attempt to transfer his own high opinion of himself on everyone else. Since he’s taken to promoting his vision of the United States as an extension of himself, I humbly suggest that our little narcissist Obama has slipped to the point of being downright delusional. If defining an entire generation in his own image, with #Gen44, didn’t warn people of this development, there are new signs just in the past few days.

First, it was the campaign ad that suggested Romney might not have been gutsy enough to order the death of Osama bin Laden. One would think that Obama had learned a lesson or two about the difference between being a candidate for the Presidency, and being President. The candidate Obama made promises about getting out of Afghanistan, before he was privy to all the neat little details that only the President would know. Now he wants to make suppositions about what his presumptive opponent in November might do in a situation that cannot be truthfully tested for multiple reasons, not the least of which being that it already occurred, and can’t again? Obama can’t even play “what if” on this in a debate, because that would involve revealing state secrets for Romney’s benefit.

But that, unfortunately, was just a start. Then, Obama thought it was a good idea to share some artwork that apparently depicts his vision of America.

Obama's U.S.

Yes, Obama’s ego has grown so large that he thinks that he is the face of this nation, perhaps for all time. Perhaps we should get nervous if he starts taking time out from campaigning to visit South Dakota – then we need to worry about whether or not he has intentions of immortalizing himself on Mt. Rushmore, perhaps replacing another president, or worse, replace them all! I think Adam Baldwin got it right with his comparison:

Now, we all know this isn’t just about a painting, disgusting as it may be. It is about the concept, that we have a president that thinks that he is more important than the sum total of the citizens of this nation. And his precious little minions are buying it. They believe him when he tells them that Democracy is still safe even if the government controls everything. Obama says that we are still a nation that protects free speech, as his minions run amok silencing the opposition. He promises a nation free from hate, at least if you happen to agree with him. And finally, back to Osama bin Laden, Obama takes personal credit for the end of that man’s life. So, is this the United States of America, or the Narcissist States of Obama?

Media Manipulation of George Zimmerman Tapes Still Driving the Trayvon Martin Narrative

This morning, during the 8am hour, the faithful listeners of the Bob Miller show on KPAM 860am were posed with a thought experiment. Evidenty George Zimmerman is having difficulty leading a normal life these days, and he’s launched a website to accept donations to cover expenses and pay his legal fees: http://www.therealgeorgezimmerman.com/. On his show, Bob Miller posed the question, “Would you contribute to George Zimmerman’s legal defense fund, and why or why not?”

A caller at around 8:12 am (audio will be posted as soon as it’s available) told Bob that there’s no way that he would contribute, despite the knowledge of Zimmerman’s financial hardships, because, “I saw the tape from the police station on ABC News, and he didn’t have a scratch on him.”

Bob corrected him and said the CNN tape clearly shows a deep gash in the back of his head, and the caller joked with Bob that he had completely derailed his argument.

 

Here’s the real takeaway from this snapshot in time. The general news-watching public is clearly still under the massive sway of several main stream news organizations that have either refused to clarify the grainy video (in the case of ABC), misquoted the 911 tape (CNN), or have actively altered the 911 recording (NBC).

5440fight.com examined this situation recently (h/t Conservative Mom):

With the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, the Democrats and media have found the story they needed to exploit in order to prove their position that America’s justice system is racially biased towards White Supremacy, just like Bell’s “Critical Race Theory” asserts, and that Obama is not a radical or racist for subscribing to this ideology.

So far, blame for the incident has been cast on Rush Limbaugh, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, George W. Bush, the Koch Brothers, and even the hoodie Martin was wearing.   Obama said that America needs to do some “soul searching” about the supposed racist guilt of our society, remarking, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon Martin.”

Over at Breitbart.com, John Nolte examines the actions of NBC, CNN and ABC and how they’ve shaped the debate over the shooting of Trayvon Martin:

[NBC’s]Editgate, however, is something much, much worse.

In the case of ABC News, even though the network knew it had the capability to eventually enhance surveillance video of Zimmerman’s arrest, the network still chose to release the un-enhanced video with this declarative headline: “Trayvon Martin Video Shows No Blood or Bruises on George Zimmerman.”

Translation: Zimmerman is a liar who hunted down and murdered an unarmed teenager.

What CNN did was even worse. “The Most Trusted Name In News” told America that, according to their audio expert, Zimmerman called Trayvon Martin a “fucking coon” just prior to shooting him. They’ve since backpedaled, but the gasoline had already been gleefully thrown on the racial fire. And like ABC News, here’s another situation where a major network shot their biased mouths off, knowing there was better technology at their disposal to report something closer to the truth later.

Translation: Zimmerman is a racist who killed an unarmed teenager because he was black.

But the Editgate gold medal goes to NBC News. The Peacock Network didn’t “misinterpret” what was in front of them and they didn’t jump the gun. What NBC did was ALTER what they had to make Zimmerman look racist.

On the storied ”Today Show,” NBC News told America Zimmerman said this on the 911 call:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

When the truth is that the unedited audio actually went like this:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.

Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?

Zimmerman: He looks black.

TRANSLATION: George Zimmerman racially profiled the unarmed black teenager he shot.

Make no mistake. These efforts have been deliberate and for a clear purpose. It has already been proven over and over again that the mainstream media are not simply in the tank for Obama, but actively assisting in disseminating the talking points directly from the White House. (See Journolist 1 and Journolist 2 for examples.)

And if the White House wants to exploit racial tensions as a wedge issue, the legacy alphabet networks are all too happy to participate.

It’s just too bad that so many of the general public are either oblivious or indifferent to the collusion and tricks by the mainstream media. This is how a caller in to a local radio show can STILL be completely unaware that the information he was fed was a complete fraud.

America’s Race Issue

 

The race issue is not new to America, but in recent years it has been used as a tool to divide us. We all know that there are groups in our nation that are truly racist, but that label does not apply to the majority of Americans.

Some of the more recent events to bring race back into the lime light is the recent accusation by Morgan Freeman that the Tea Party is racist; and Obama calling Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain an Oreo. The Democrats and their liberal backers continuously try to label any threat to their agenda as racist.

Mr. Freeman needs to quietly attend a Tea Party gathering and meet the people he accuses of being racist and learn what color they go by. He needs to get to know the many Tea Party members that come from many different races and backgrounds. What about these members that he calls racist that are black? Are they prejudice against their own race? Mr. Freeman, we will let you in on the great color secret of the Tea Party: the colors are red white and blue.

It would seem that Obama is under the impression that Cain has a soft, sweet center. Again they forget the red and blue. Of course, Oreos are on most American’s list of favorite treats- and what a treat it would be to see Cain take over the oval office!

Oreo from the racial view normally means a person that is half black and half white. Obama used Oreo to say that Cain is nothing more than a “white man” in black skin. Wouldn’t this be considered the pot calling the kettle black?

What makes a black mans beliefs different than that of a white man? Just because one’s skin is darker or lighter than another does not mean they cannot share the same beliefs. I know and have many other friends of different races than my own that share most of my beliefs. The common bond is the belief of conservative values andor that America is still a Christian nation no matter what Obama and the liberals say.

The color of a person’s skin does not mean that they are limited to what they can believe. That holds no truer than here in the United States of America, where each of us have the right and freedom to choose what we believe. Isn’t it the left that supposedly condemns the stereotyping of any group? The Tea Party has been stereotyped and labeled ever since we have started to band together and stand up for our beliefs.

For Herman Cain and anyone of the Tea Party that has taken offense to the remarks from the liberals, just remember: they attack us because they have realized that we are here to take our nation back and we are the ones who will keep their socialist dreams from coming true.



 

A Signal For the End of "Civility"?

It was just seven months ago, at the memorial service for those killed in the Arizona shooting where Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot, that President Obama called for the nation to commit to more civility in interacting among with each other. One of the greatest moments for the entire nation that evening was when he gave us the good news that “Gabby opened her eyes for the first time” that evening while he was visiting her.

It was a moment of hope during a national tragedy marked by accusations from the liberals that the Tea Party had caused this attack.  Not long after his “emotionally charged” speech honoring the victims in the senseless shooting in Arizona, it was determined that the shooter had absolutely no ties to the Tea Party movement at all. In fact, he was not a politically involved person at all, but seemed instead to have a personal vendetta against Congresswoman Giffords that stemmed from an earlier meeting between them.

Seven months later, and thankfully, Congresswoman Giffords is making remarkable progress. She’s even made the historic return to Congress to cast her vote for the debt ceiling increase. Whether you agree with her vote or not, the mere fact that she was there and able to vote was truly cause for celebration.

With the celebrating over, a question must be asked.  Does Congresswoman Giffords’ return to Congress signal the end of the president’s call to the nation for civility?

In looking at recent events it most certainly appears that the gloves have come off. Once again, the Tea Party is being accused of things that are completely false. Pulling their favorite tempter-tantrum tactic, liberals have pulled the ever-popular race card to go along with these accusations.

Here are a few examples:

  • Maxine Waters says the Tea Party can “go straight to hell”  Now, down here in these parts, them are fightin’ words if I ever heard ’em!
  • Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson blames black unemployment on racism
  • Indiana Democratic Senator Andre Carson accuses the Tea Party of being a lynch mob who wants to hang blacks from trees
  • California Rep. Karen Bass blames the media for the terrorist comments made by Senator Carson

The next baseless accusation can be seen here where Nancy Pelosi babbles on and on incoherently about the rich not paying taxes because they want to be immortal, how Republicans hate kids and keep wages low so they can force people to pay bank fees.

In all actuality, this last example may not be a good one to use in the argument questioning whether or not the call for civility has ended. In this case, it should be senility that is called into question rather than civility. But that’s an entirely different argument altogether!

Not surprisingly, President Obama has been strangely quiet during this barrage of accusations from those in his own party. This is just another example of his empty words ringing so loud with hypocrisy. Maybe he should take lessons from a real leader : Florida  Rep. Allen West, who calls it what it is!

Charity Defined

We continually hear the liberal left rant that the Conservatives want to take food out of the mouths of children and throw grandma off the cliff.

Liberals refuse to understand and/or accept the fact that their definition of “charity” is not at all what charity truly is.

Let’s look at a hypothetical situation.

If I see you with a sandwich, and I see a hungry child at another table, and I walk over to you, demanding that you give your sandwich to the hungry child, I am not being charitable. If you give your sandwich to that child, but only because I am demanding it, you are not being charitable either.

What if I ask you if you would mind giving your sandwich to the child? Maybe you have not noticed the child as I have. You willingly agree. This is charity.

Now, what if I have a sandwich, but I do not want to give up my sandwich? I tell you that you need to give your sandwich to the child, while I continue to eat my sandwich. Obviously, this is not charity.

Lastly, what if I walk over, grab your sandwich from you, not giving you the choice to give the sandwich? Is this charity? No, this is me stealing from you, whether I give the sandwich to the child or not. Whether or not I have a sandwich of my own, and I am eating it, or if I give it to the child as well, if I come and take your sandwich from you, I have taken your choice from you. This is thievery, plain and simple.

God is very clear that we are to be charitable.

This past week, charity was defined in action. With our economy in a state of disarray, unemployment numbers through the roof, and the cost of everything going up every day, it’s truly a blessing to see charity defined in actions not just words or piety.

In Woodstock, Georgia, the Georgia Dental Association’s Foundation for Oral Health teamed up with the First Baptist Church of Woodstock to host a two-day dental clinic.

The line was estimated to be 2,000 yards long (that is the size of 20 football fields), and a total of 4,000 people were in line.

People of all ages came to the clinic to have needed dental work done- for free. This event was done out of the goodness of the hearts of volunteers. Conservative Daily News contacted Martha S. Phillips, Executive Director of the Georgia Dental Association, who verified that there were no government subsidies, grants, or anything of the like used for this event, saying:

There were no government funds used. All costs were paid for by private donations.

There were people that came the day before the clinic opened, and actually “slept on the concrete”. Due to hard economic times, the need for dental services have greatly increased.

Dr. Richard Smith, a dentist who practices in Atlanta, said:

“A bunch of us started looking around and realized that with this economy we had to do something. We are not responsible for the problem that’s there, but we’re the only ones who can fix it.

“A lot of these people are in pain, they have infections, they’re missing front teeth … there’s a huge need just to get people back to work. Mothers can’t take care of their children, fathers can’t earn a living … we’ve got to help them.”

The clinic was set up at the church, where 100 dental chairs and more than 1,600 volunteers, including 300 dentists volunteered their time and service.

“We’ve got hygienists we’ve got dental assistants working, there’s oral surgeons extracting teeth, we have endodontists doing root canals … we’ve got people here to feed them; it takes an army and this church has just been absolutely incredible.”

Dr. Michael Vernon, a dentist from Augusta, was deeply moved by the response from the patients, saying:

“Two the first three patients that I saw actually sat in the chair and cried because they were so appreciative of what we’re doing here and it just made me feel good about being here.”

More than 1,600 volunteers came to help other people because they care. Private citizens gave donations. No one depended on the government to provide a single penny to the cause. This is truly charity defined!

Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that “We all possess knowledge.” But knowledge puffs up while love [charity] builds up. 1 Corinthians 8:1

God calls us to love- to give charity- to those in need. Throughout history, the Church has been the place where people went when they needed help. Slowly, over the last four decades, that has changed. The church has stopped being the place for the needy and hurting people of the world, so the government stepped in.

The liberal left has turned our government into an idol- their god whom they see as responsible to care for everyone. This goes against God Almighty’s command that this is puffed up arrogance, not charity. While God expects us to help people in need, 2 Thessalonians 3:10 says:

If a man will not work, he shall not eat.

What began as simply allowing, but what has now become an expectation of  the government to provide for everyone who does not “have”, we have stopped requiring that a person have personal responsibility for their behavior. It is a slippery slope that has gotten completely out of control and is fast leading us to self-destruction as a nation.

What once was just providing food for the hungry has now become providing cell phones for anyone that does not already have one. Somewhere along the way, Uncle Sam was shoved out of command, and Uncle Sugar stepped in. This country is so very different from the America I know and love, where there is a certain expectation for her citizens to be a productive part of society. We have allowed personal responsibility to be thrown out the window, turned to the government to solve our problems, allowed the citizens of this great nation to feel they are entitled to every whim and want that becomes the trend.

Woodstock First Baptist Church and the Georgia Dental Association has shown this nation that true charity can be done and done well. They did not look to the government for handouts. They put their hands out- not to receive something, but to give something- a helping hand to those in need.

 

US Dept Of Veterans Affairs Bans Mention of God

Complete story may be see here:

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/veterans-affairs-bans-mention-of-god-at-funerals-for-vets-124680358.html

So here we go again. The administration of the ultimate Control Freakazoid, The Usuper Obama, strikes again in the person of Arleen Ocasio, Director of the Houston National Cemetery.

…for we are no longer a Christian nation and, after all, I am The (Chosen) One. Like God, I do not have a verifiable COB (CertificateOfBirth). He who shall have doubted or opposed me shall suffer in the afterlife of 2012.

 

 

 

The mere mention of the word “God” has brought the full weight of the federal government down upon the mourning shoulders of no less than four American families grieving for their fallen heroes…, who fell in service to the demands of that very same government.

My review of available biography material(1) on Ms. Ocasio indicates that she was formerly affiliated and worked within the VA Medical Center in of all places…Chicago, IL. While there she was in the position of Hispanic Employment Program assistant manager which position most certainly have placed her in direct contact with various “community organizer” folks to further the interests of disadvantaged minorities. Interesting.

When the no mention of God issue shtf it provoked an investigation by Congressman Ted Poe of TX covered well here:

http://biggovernment.com/mlancaster/2011/07/23/texas-congressman-goes-undercover-at-houston-national-cemetery/

…which references the ongoing lawsuit on this very matter.

In May Federal District Judge Lynn N. Hughes granted a temporary restraining order against the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and its Director of the Houston National Cemetery, Arleen Ocasio.

The order was issued to keep the VA and Ocasio from preventing Pastor Scott Rainey from praying in Jesus’ name during his invocation at a Memorial Day ceremony sponsored by the National Cemetery Council for Greater Houston (a private, non-profit association). The order was issued because the judge ruled that “such censorship and religious discrimination violates the free speech guarantees of the First Amendment.”

This is the applicable portion of that restraining order that lays down the interpretation of constitutional law:

“The government’s compulsion of a program’s inclusion or exclusion of a particular religion offends the Constitution. The Constitution does not confide to the government the authority to compel emptiness in a prayer, where a prayer belongs.”

Besides the prayer issue, Ms. Ocasio incurred the judge’s wrath for appearing to confirm that the cemetery’s former “chapel” was closed and turned into a meeting room by virtue of this exchange…

Judge Hughes denied the government’s motion to dismiss the case, but not before upbraiding VA’s attorney, Fred Hinrichs, for being unable to answer his questions.

When Hughes asked whether the chapel was open, Hinrichs said he didn’t know.

“Why not?” the judge shot back. “A phone call to the cemetery could ascertain if that is true or not.”

“Yes, your honor,” the attorney said.

“So the VA has been investigating for a month and hasn’t come to any conclusions?” the judge pressed.

Hinrichs said some of the claims in the complaint aren’t factually correct, but he wasn’t prepared to give specifics.

“I don’t know that they’re true,” the judge said, “but an afternoon on Veterans Memorial Drive and you should be able to document most of this stuff.”   (2)

Ms. Ocasio can still be (as of this date) reached at 281-447-8686 (extension 206). IMPORTANT: (“Importante” en Espanol) Although NO PROMPT is given to enter an extension if you have one, it will be accepted IF you enter 2-0-6 IMMEDIATELY upon the completion of the entire recorded message you hear.

Racism In America

August 28, 1963 on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech to a massive crowd of two hundred thousand plus people. The crowd was made up of many different races of people, not just black, not just white. On that day, people gathered and united for a common good. Even though race relations could have exploded into violence and unrest many people of our nation united to solve a long standing problem.

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

These immortal words were a driving force behind actions taken to correct the injustices that were so prevalent in those days.

My question for you is this: have the words and dreams of Dr. King been twisted and perverted?

Rep. Allen West has been in the news a great deal. Rep. West has stated that he has been called such things as “Uncle Tom” and “sellout” for standing up for what he believes. Rep. West received numerous decorations in his military career before he retired in 2004, but it appears that his biggest battle might have just begun. Those on the left seem to have set their sights on Rep. West, especially fellow Floridian Rep. Wasserman-Schultz.

Recently I came across an article by Lloyd Marcus entitled “The Black Code”. Mr. Marcus answered some questions I have had for several years and even gave some new questions and thoughts to ponder. I understand that like people tend to group together whether it is on the basis of religion, culture or even race. What Mr. Marcus opened my eyes to is the existence of the “codes” that exist among many groups- be it blacks, whites, liberal or conservative to name a few. Some people live their lives by such a code while others don’t. Mr. Marcus described some of the repercussions of not adhering to the “Black Code”.

“Consequences for violating The Black Code are severe. I boldly proclaim myself to be an unhyphenated American rather than the politically correct term, “African-American”. It never occurred to me my statement would be seen as a violation of The Black Code.”

Mr. Marcus explained how the code played into the election of Obama when he ran for president.

“The emergence of Obama as America’s first black presidential candidate automatically activated The Black Code in the hearts and minds of most black Americans.

Obama’s socialistic ideas, anti-America associations and friends were irrelevant. Once again, I found myself odd man out with family and black friends.”

This is when I asked myself a couple of questions; isn’t it just as racist to vote for a person because of their skin color as it is to not to vote for them for their skin color? Doesn’t this kind of thinking contradict Dr. King’s teachings?

 “But there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.”   – Dr. King

 

“Al Sharpton and the usual suspects along with their sycophant clueless puppy dog white liberal media exploit The Black Code at every opportunity.”-Lloyd Marcus

Over the years, people such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have successfully manipulated many Americans for nothing more than their personal gain while others have used the “race card” to push their liberal agenda.

When Rep. Allen West sent his email to Rep. Wasserman-Schultz in response to her attack on him, the head of The National Black Caucus stated that he was “furious” with Rep. West. Where is this “Black Code”? Does Rep. West not qualify for inclusion in the loyalty the “code” dictates? Am I to understand that the “code” does not apply to black gentlemen (or ladies) that hold conservative values?

“Exploitation of The Black Code is the left’s strategy to defeat the tea party and get out the black vote in 2012. Their think tank went something like this:

“I got it!

Let’s call the tea party racist.

We’ll accuse them of opposing Obama’s race rather than his agenda to fundamentally transform America. Instinctively, blacks will flock to the polls in defense of their brother against those white tea party rednecks.”- Lloyd Marcus

The Tea Party racist? Was it not the Tea Party that was the driving force behind the election of Rep. West?

The left’s tactics push people of all races to look at candidates based on anything but their content of character.  They will play the “race card” at every chance and lie about candidates to distract the American people from what really matters. They do not want the U.S. Constitution to remain. They want to turn this great nation into their personal socialist playground.

I commend and admire people like Rep. West and Lloyd Marcus for standing up to the pressures of the politically correct in defense of our great nation. We should all hold people of their caliber as true patriots. We need more people like them no matter what color their skin is.

I hope that all that read this will read Mr. Marcus’ article also and above all else, do what Dr. King dreamed about, judge (especially your candidates) by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.

Text of Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech


Celebrating a Political Anniversary

It was back 8 years ago, although it seems like an eternity now, that I…for the first and last time ever pissed my pants laughing. I was reading an article about two hours ago and it mentioned the name of a female congressperson from Texas. That was all I needed for some raucous instant-recall. Return with me now to July of 2003 as I reprise the occasion of a member of the demonRATic attack machine in action.

Not content with the more mundane complaints she is known for, the demonRATic representative from the Grand and Glorious Empire of Texas, one Sheila Jackson-Lee, has gnarled her way back to the media podium yet again to lecture us all.

Can you guess what about?

(CAUTION: If you have a problem controlling your bladder or bowels when laughing DO NOT PROCEED ANY FURTHER)

Ms. Sheila Jackson-Lee (whom I sincerely wish would decide if she’s a “Jackson” or a “Lee” rather than a conflicted feminist) demanded to know why all hurricanes were chrisened with only Caucasian-sounding names. “All racial groups should be represented.”(1) she said, At the same time she lashed out at the National Weather Service she also opined that…in the future lists of names “would try to be inclusive of African American names”(1) as well as Caucasoid (Caucasion).

I found no concern by her regarding the third race of man, the Mongoloid folks of the world. Apparently an oversight for one functioning with a critically diminished intellectual capacity.

At the time, after having regained my compusure, I briefly wondered why her constituency (possibly shocked and embarassed by such a performance) hadn’t started a “recall petition” for the aforementioned. I recovered shortly upon realizing that they had voted her in and done so repeatedly, so obviously knew what they had and approved. They must have. She is still their representative!

I wondered if with the passing of time the names of hurricanes for 2011 might have been adjusted to accomodate this ridiculous ‘racist’ demand. After all it was a very serious matter, because in 2005 a Cobb County, GA worker was summarily fired for passing about the humorous email forward detailing this incident. That was followed in Texas by a Mayor asking for the resignation of a councilperson for doing the same thing. Gee thought I…Didn’t anybody happen to notice the abrogation of the right to freedom of speech here?

I digress though. Let’s look at the 2011 list of hurricane names:

2011 Hurricane Names (2)

Arlene
Bret
Cindy
Don
Emily
Franklin
Gert
Harvey
Irene
Jose
Katia
Lee
Maria
Nate
Ophelia
Philippe
Rina
Sean
Tammy
Vince
Whitney

Oh sh*t! This doesn’t look so good. As I peruse the monnickers assigned I fail to see anything even vaguely representing a M’ry-ah or a Jamal or a Chamiqua or a Leroi or even an Amos or Andy or Calhoun or something closely akin to such. WASSUP WID DAT? We may-bees in big trouble wid da NAACP and da BLackest Congresshionals Caucasoidal.

O woe is we be! Trubles be on da ho-risen fo’ shure!

The Hypocrisy of Liberals Rears Its Head Again

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz

When a Republican man speaks his mind concerning a Democrat woman, he is accused of personally attacking her.

However, when the left personally attacks a woman on the right, you never hear a peep.

Once again, we are seeing a case of the liberal’s double standard tactics at its finest!

One of the hottest topics in the news currently is the ongoing feud between Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Congressman Allen West, both from Florida.

Congressman West addressed the current issue with Congresswoman Wasserman-Schultz via email, in which he copied other leaders in Congress:

From: Z112 West, Allen
Sent: Tuesday, July 19, 2011 04:48 PM
To: Wasserman Schultz, Debbie
Cc: McCarthy, Kevin; Blyth, Jonathan; Pelosi, Nancy; Cantor, Eric
Subject: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman-Schultz

Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional ,and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!

I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.

You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!

Steadfast and Loyal

Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)

Allen West

In response, the head of the Congressional Black Caucus said that they are “furious” with the email he sent, and will be speaking with Congressman West.

Several female lawmakers held a news conference demanding that Congressman West apologize.

Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, a Democrat from New York, said:

“His words were nothing more than personal attacks….it is “very ladylike to speak up for the values that you believe in.”

Congresswoman Maloney added that she hopes Speaker of the House John Boehner “disavows” Congressman West’s remarks.

Not to be outdone, Congresswoman Donna Edwards, another Democrat, said she was “shocked” by the “disgraceful” email sent by Congressman West. She also stated:

“Instead of engaging constructively in that debate, Representative West chose to resort to unprofessional, vitriolic and offensive personal attacks — shame on him.”

Where were all of these female lawmakers during the numerous personal attacks against Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann?  I have not heard a single one of them stand up and demand that apologies be given to either of these ladies, both of who have been on the receiving end of numerous personal attacks. I’ve never heard Congresswoman Maloney compliment either of these ladies with compliments for “speaking up for the values they believe in.”

Once again, the hypocrisy of the left is absolutely disgusting!

 

 

Where’s Sheila Jackson-Lee When You Need Her?

Sheila Jackson-Lee (D)

Sheila Jackson-Lee. Just her name alone invokes controversy.

Never fear, she is at it again!

On Friday, on the floor of the  House, Sheila Jackson-Lee let forth a rant accusing some members of Congress of refusing to raise the debt ceiling because President Barack Obama is black.

“Read between the lines. What is different about this president that should put him in a position that he should not receive the same kind of respectful treatment of when it is necessary to raise the debt limit in order to pay our bills, something required by both statute and the 14th Amendment?

But I do not understand what I think is the maligning and maliciousness of this president. Why is he different? And in my community, that is the question that we raise. In the minority community, that is the question that is being raised. Why is this president being treated so disrespectfully?”

As usual, when all else fails, pull out the race card!

However, we have not heard a peep out of Congresswoman Jackson-Lee in defense of Representative Allen West from Florida, who was attacked from the floor of the House by Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, who said:

“The gentleman from Florida who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries. Unbelievable from a member from South Florida.”

Interestingly enough, Congresswoman Wasserman-Schultz did not address Congressman West directly, she chose to make the statement after he had left the room.

Why isn’t Sheila Jackson-Lee asking why Congressman West (a black man) is not “receiving the same kind of respectful treatment” from Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (a white woman)? Presidential candidate Herman Cain said it best when he said:

“She is playing the race card, like they do when they can’t defend this president’s record.”

Mr. Cain’s statement is proven correct with the conflict going on with Congressman West and Congresswoman Wasserman-Schultz. If it is racism with President Obama, it is racism with Congressman West. Obviously, neither situation has anything to do with racism. It’s just a convenient tactic the left uses to detract from the truth.

Would Palin Be Taken More Seriously With A Golfclub In Her Hand?

 

The current issue of Newsweek Magazine

Sarah Palin is making the headlines once again. The former governor of Alaska and Tea Party favorite is on the current cover of Newsweek magazine. It should come as no surprise that her critics have come out to criticize her once again. This time, it is about the way she looks.

Jonathan Capehart posted on The Washington Post’s PostPartisan blog criticizing her choice of clothing and the fact that she is on the cover of Newsweek, writing:

Folks want to be able to envision someone sitting in the Oval Office. They don’t necessarily want to envision them in the pages of Esquire magazine’s “Sexiest Woman Alive 2011” or Maxim. She can’t possibly be taken seriously as a presidential contender dressed like that, especially since this is the second time she has graced Newsweek in a less-than-presidential pose.

I suppose if you add a little something to her outfit, it would make it much more fitting. Let’s use President Barack Obama as an example.

 


Here is President Obama on the cover of the December 10, 2009 issue of Golf Digest. If Sarah Palin took her cue from President Obama, all she would have to do is put a golf club in her hand and she would most certainly look Presidential if we are going to debate what it takes to look presidential.

Once again, to quote Jonathan Capehart from today:

Folks want to be able to envision someone sitting in the Oval Office. They don’t necessarily want to envision them in the pages of Esquire magazine’s “Sexiest Woman Alive 2011” or Maxim. She can’t possibly be taken seriously as a presidential contender dressed like that, especially since this is the second time she has graced Newsweek in a less-than-presidential pose.

That is quite interesting indeed! If you notice the bold text of the quote from Mr. Capehart, it would be interesting to see what he would have to say about President Obama on the cover of this magazine:

 

May 2009 Washingtonian Magazine

The hypocrisy of the left is just astounding!

 

 


The Demise of the GOP as We Know It?

 

DENVER, July 11, 2011 – The following statement has been issued by Jorge H. Moromisato, Director of the Reformed Economics Institute and author of “The Denver Plan to End Unemployment”:

An infusion of Tea Party extremism seems to have infected the Republican Party. Even before they took their seats in Congress, Tea Partisans had converted the GOP into a staunch defender of the super-rich — the 1% top earners in the nation.

Perhaps encouraged by last December’s victory — when the GOP successfully blackmailed your Administration into extending the Bush tax cuts for the super-rich — the Republicans are now threatening to shut down the government by refusing to increase the debt ceiling unless your party, the Democrats, agrees to sharp budget cuts for the next decade without any tax increases.

All experts agree that there is no way to reduce the fiscal deficit without a combination of spending cuts and tax increases. The GOP, however, has decided that any tax increase on the super-rich will only pass over the dead body of the entire nation; that is absolutely unconscionable.

Last week (Fourth of July) David Brooks, in his NY Times regular article, blamed the GOP’s position on the influence of members of the Tea Party. He concludes his article with a very serious warning to his own party:

“If the debt ceiling talks fail, independent voters will see that Democrats were willing to compromise but Republicans were not … They will conclude that Republicans are not fit to govern.

“And they will be right.”

The GOP has drawn a line in the sand over the issue of “no increase in government revenues.” If the debt ceiling talks fail, it will not be clear that the GOP was at fault; after all, standing on the principle of “no more taxes” beats “no more spending cuts” by a mile. Your Administration cannot afford the talks to fail over those issues, but neither can it afford the public reaction to the austerity measures that will follow an agreement on the GOP’s terms. Your only chance of winning, now and in November 2012, would be to make crystal-clear what the real issue is:

Does protecting the super-rich from a small tax increase justify bringing the entire nation down?

My advice would be that you take the following three steps:

  1. Present to Congress a deficit-reduction plan including a gradual increase in taxes on the super-rich.
  2. Ask for a Supreme Court pronouncement reminding Congress of its obligation to raise the debt ceiling without pre-conditions. [Art. 1, Section 8, “… To make all laws which shall be necessary …”]
  3. Explain to the nation what the real issue in contention is (a fair tax on the super-rich), and keep doing it until the message gets through to the people.

Your Administration, Mr. President, is facing a terrible danger, but also a great opportunity: depending on how you chose to fight, or not, you will contribute to the GOP’s demise, or to its ascendance.

BIDEN MISSES THE TARGET…AGAIN!

You almost had it right Joe.

The sitting Vice-President Joe Biden said “This is not your father’s Republican Party.”(1) I was almost ready to congratulate the pretentious old fart if only mister half-*ssed hadn’t only gotten it half right. In his current “stump speech” this line from the one and the same old Joe Biden who…

…withdrew from the 1988 presidential race after being discovered “delivering, without attribution, passages from a speech by British Labor party leader Neil Kinnock… a serious plagiarism incident involving Biden during his law school years; the senator’s boastful exaggerations of his academic record at a New Hampshire campaign event; and the discovery of other quotations in Biden’s speeches pilfered from past Democratic politicians.(2)

…proved to have displayed all the necessary and mendacious Oba-like qualities to qualify him to his current position.

He has it right in perception if we go back to our true conservatives influences and can wrest control of that party away from the all too willing to capitulate-by-compromise RINOs. I’ll make a big presumption here and say that generally we conservatives believe that we are the influence that is reaching out to pull the Republican Party back to it’s conservative roots of our  “father’s Republican Party”. Political compromise is essential to accurately representing the people…all of the people, but PRINCIPLES are NEVER for COMPROMISING to attain a pragmatic end. RINOS wouldn’t know a principle if it was staring them in the eye!

The real start for this shift in viewing America as a sovereign entity, totally in control of  her own manifest destiny, was corrupted during the reign of The Prodigal Prez, William Jefferson ‘Bubba’ Clinton. The lone voice crying out against this was he whom I came to call The Reluctant Candidate, Ross Perot. [see video source>] (3) To be sure BOTH parties enabled this. The Democrats, the former “loyal opposition”, had already morphed in the demonRATic party and the left-leaning influence of RINOs was already in motion in the Republican Party then tugging towards the left. The McCain influence was being felt. Necessary to any discussion of partisanship in American politics is to define what a conservative ‘in geberal’ merans. I’ve come to state it this way. Conservatives are those who support the view of a “traditional values” America guided by a loyalty to the “original intent” interpetation of our Constitution. Traditional values are those  basic values that remained present in our policy-making and law up to and including the immediate post-WWII era. After that a very subtle influence shift started to take place.  In the post Korean War era progressive education as a policy started to entrench itself into our elementary school curriculum planning.(4) I’ve always preferred to transalte that codeword phrase of “proigressive education” to a more understandable “diversity restructuring agenda”. That’s where the original strength of the that American Melting Pot era has the social engineers separating diverse groups into separate “target groups” by which they’ll identify themselves and perceive themselves, over time, as “victims” to enable a political agenda of subliminal coercive influence of groups of voters into which they’ve sown the seeds of envy and discontent. My opinion strictly, but one that can be borne out by a fair examination of history.

I have a habit of saving files around the times of national elections. They provide interesting historical perspective later on in the not so immediate future, when they become much harder to dig up. So it may soon be with this source> (5), which should be read in it’s entirety, and this excerpt:

McCain had initially wanted Joe Lieberman. The two senators were fellow romantics, deeply imbued with a sense of righteousness and honor. In mid-August, when NEWSWEEK’s editor Jon Meacham was interviewing McCain aboard the campaign plane, the discussion turned to “The Winds of War,” Herman Wouk’s mega-bestseller about World War II. The main character, a naval commander named Pug Henry, was a favorite of McCain’s. As it turned out, Lieberman—sitting just across the aisle and listening in on the NEWSWEEK interview—was a friend of Herman Wouk. “Let’s go see Herman!” Lieberman piped up. “Yes!” exclaimed McCain. The two began planning a road trip out to Wouk’s California home. “We can shake the money tree,” McCain cackled (Wouk lives among the wealthy in Palm Springs, Calif.). McCain loved to travel with Lieberman, a fellow maverick who had stood fast on Iraq, nearly at the cost of his Senate seat in liberal Connecticut. McCain’s other traveling buddy, Lindsey Graham, urged McCain to pick Lieberman, still a nominal Democrat, as a way to show that McCain put country over party label—and as a way to answer the Democrats’ choice of the first African-American presidential nominee. “We’ve got to match history with history,” Graham declared.

 

Much as we conservatives like to show unity we know that the second Bush term was catastrophic for the Republican Party. “W”…, the Compassionate Conservative, capitulating to the “globalism” agenda that his father and grandfather before him supported, exacerbated the southern border problem this nation had turned a blind eye to for years. And he, with John McCain as his willing enabler, set about promoting an Open Borders and Shamnesty policy as the goal of this sovereign republic. Ironic that he whom many of us saw as a conservative, albeit “compassionate conservative” influence, would be the one who became the big federal free-spender and actually enabled the Oba-agenda.

That was, in and of itself, bad enough as a national policy, but it gets worse. At the same time Joe Biden and his kind of leftist demonRATs, the new left Democratic Party, were mounting it’s assault upon our Constitution. In every administration they controlled they set about ‘stacking the system’ with judges in positions of great authority within the federal appeals court system and the results would become obvious(6) only later. This was out of the headlights glare as their nominations to the Court of Nine, SCOTUS, got all the attention. Yesterday’s seeds sown were bearing today’s despicable judiciary harvest. The average citizen doesn’t and didn’t pay attention to where these SCOTUS nominees were coming from. In the modern era it can be shown that by control of the courts the demonRATs set about an agenda, albeit never formally announced, of a b-r-o-a-d interpretation of the “original intent “ meaning of “implied powers” in our Constitution. It came to be called “legislating from the bench”. Original intent was that implied powers were defined as only those necessary to bring enumerated (or granted powers) into law. Not so anymore!

Yep Joe…you almost had it right, but you missed by some 230+ years.
