Holder Stirs the Racial Pot

August 20, 2014

Attorney General Eric Holder has made it known he believes racism is the reason for criticism of himself and president Obama. He refused to press charges against the Black Panthers for voter intimidation during the 2008 elections despite overwhelming evidence against them. He has plotted with president Obama and Al Sharpton to find ways to combat state voter identification laws, deeming them to be racist. His department’s Community Relations Service helped organize protests in the Trayvon Martin case in Florida, inflaming racial tensions.

Now, Eric Holder, along with his Community Relations Service, is going to Ferguson, Missouri to…well…it’s not really clear why. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are already there making sure this fiasco remains a race issue and the police officer remains guilty regardless of facts. Holder’s presence will only re-enforce that. No one believes he is going there to ensure the accused’s rights are upheld.

Ferguson is another example of top-down attitudes from this administration infecting the nation. Racism has been inflamed and kept in the forefront by president Obama and Eric Holder making it no surprise that the black community becomes inflamed at every opportunity. Obama’s attitudes toward social injustice, economic disparity, and America’s atrocities and “unfairness” have also seeped into society creating divisiveness, class warfare, and anger – all for political purposes and his personal agenda.

The incident in Ferguson has become a purely racial issue and will remain so throughout the trial that Holder, Sharpton, and Jackson are there to ensure will occur. Any facts that may not substantiate a trial or possibly indicate the officer acted properly will be labeled as a racist police cover-up. If such facts are not kept hidden, further rioting will occur until they no longer matter.

This is where we are today and Obama and his administration is at the very least partially responsible. We were once on the path to racial healing. Now we are in a “post-racial era” with wounds being rubbed raw once again. This is called progress.

Here We Go Again

August 12, 2014

Ferguson, Missouri experienced looting and rioting after a young, unarmed black man was shot multiple times and killed by a police officer. It does not look good for the police officer at this time, but an investigation had barely begun when incensed locals (and many from out of town) decided the best way to deal with this was by looting and rioting. They are sure of what happened but if wrong, at least they will get some free stuff.

A free TV, free food, free cash from a busted ATM, or just the fun of burning down a local store and a few parked cars is the going rate of exchange for inner city rage (and sometimes for the celebration of a sports team championship). It doesn’t matter whose store is looted, or whose car is burned. In fact, it is the local community, the same community that is outraged, that will experience destruction.

Some in Ferguson are recognizing the stupidity of wrecking one’s own neighborhood, sending out on Twitter that the rioting needed to be done in white neighborhoods. Blaming all white people for the actions of one individual is not considered racist because racism, along with most looting, is a one-way street in today’s society. Some even believe that a black person cannot be racist but that is ignorantly wrong – and is a racist remark.

When a white policeman is gunned down in cold blood it never results in rioting and looting. In fact, the killing of a policeman is often celebrated in song with protests demanding the killer be set free – which brings us to Al Sharpton, now on his way to Ferguson.

Al Sharpton (appearing wherever there are cameras) was the spark that lit the fire in the Crown Heights riots of 1991 and the Freddy’s Fashion Mart massacre in 1995 – after making a fool of himself in the 1987 Tawana Brawley fiasco (which he still won’t admit was a hoax). Is there any reason to believe Sharpton will be a calming influence and bring civilized behavior back to Ferguson?

Welcome to post-racial America.

Our Government is Failing Its Responsibilities

June 16, 2014

The Preamble to the Constitution tells us very succinctly why our government exists: We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence (sic), promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity…Our government is currently failing to live up to these basic responsibilities.

Justice” for our government has been ideologically distorted to cater to minorities at the expense of the majority in order to advance the current administration’s policies. The Justice Department, led by Eric Holder, is surrounded in controversy with issues such as aggressive probing of journalists, the IRS scandal, drone attacks, and much more. It has selectively decided what to pursue and not pursue based on politics rather than justice and laws are being rewritten or ignored.

Domestic tranquility” has been severely hampered by the political partisanship pervading Congress. President Obama has established an “us against them” atmosphere for political gain and policies are being advanced that widen the divide in the country.

Providing for the country’s defense is the most egregious failure of our government. Our southern border is open due to policies set in place unilaterally by president Obama resulting in known Mexican gang members as well as possible terrorists entering the country with impunity. Obama’s abandonment of Iraq resulted in al Qaeda taking over and possibly gaining an entire country with its resources to use against us. Iran, on the verge of having nuclear weapons, may easily fill the void in Iraq or aid the terrorists to our detriment. Afghanistan is sure to follow suit when Obama’s declared abandonment comes to fruition. Putin is fearlessly resurrecting the USSR, endangering the U.S. and the entire world.

Social policies encouraged by our current government do not “promote the general Welfare”. These policies promote the “specific welfare” of groups that are politically advantageous for a transformation of America that will do nothing to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”. This transformation is designed to prune our liberties to fit an idealistic agenda contrary to American traditions.

Our government’s failure to live up to these responsibilities is glaring and frightening. If we don’t get our government back to basics soon, there will be no future for our form of government.

Racist Unions

May 29, 2014

All complaints against Obamacare have been met with allegations of racism. Even as predicted woes become reality, racism continues to be the rebuttal. Now, many unions are having a difficult time with the economic reality of the ACA (Affordable? Care Act) and are speaking out against it. It can only be racism.

Attorney Jim Ray, representing Laborers International Union of North America, complained that Obamacare provisions have increased construction-industry health plans’ costs by 5% to 10%, saying: “When we first supported the calls for health-care reform, we thought it was going to bring costs down”. Mr. Ray fell victim to the “if-you-like-your-health-plan-you-can-keep-it” ruse but complaining, as we have been told time and time again, is racist.

If it were just unions being hurt, we could all have a good laugh and say “it serves them right”. After all, unions were unconditional proponents of the ACA and helped propel an inexperienced Obama from community service into the White House. Unfortunately, we are all being harmed in ways that many are just beginning to realize – and there is more damage to come.

Costs are increasing rather than decreasing as promised (still denied by true believers) and, of course, unions are trying to pass increases onto employers who want workers to shoulder the burden. Some health benefits that have been negotiated over decades are now costing more and may end up having to be cut.

Strikes are imminent as workers and unions are reluctant to pay. Septa’s biggest union, Transport Workers Union Local 234, has rejected a proposal that its members contribute an additional 1% to cover ACA-related increases. Union officials say the law penalizes so-called union-sponsored multi-employer health plans – another racist remark.

In New England, the United Food and Commercial Workers Union eliminated coverage for thousands of part-time workers in order to keep benefits for full-time workers. In Las Vegas, workers at nine casinos voted to go on strike if t ACA-related increase problems are not solved by June 1.

Will Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton march against this union racism? Will Chris Matthews rail against white-dominated, racist unions? Don’t hold your breath.

Sterling Silver Slippery Slope

May 5, 2014

Concerning the Donald Sterling feeding frenzy, NBA Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban may have said it best: “It’s changed everything for everybody for the foreseeable future…The world has changed. And everybody better realize it. Now you know the consequences of lack of privacy.”

Cuban further warned: “I think you’ve got to be very, very careful when you start making blanket statements about what people say and think, as opposed to what they do. It’s a very, very slippery slope.” Yes, indeed it is. Sterling displayed racism long before this but was given a pass because of his money. This change is frightening, especially with invasion of privacy seeming to be of no concern.

This certainly should frighten Orlando Magic owner Rich DeVos. He has taken a strong stance and spoken out against gay marriage in the past and that’s considered akin to racism by many hardcore progressives. If Sterling can be spied, tried, and fried for voicing an opinion that the NBA considers unacceptable, DeVos could easily be next.

In the 90’s, Cincinnati Reds owner Marge Schott was taken to task for comments made about blacks and Jews. She was punished but she was not stripped of ownership. She eventually sold the team, but it was her decision to do so. Who, then, made the decision that punishment must now be more severe?

Is public opinion, which always sways in the political winds, enough to make that decision? What happens if this society changes? Would it be acceptable for a right-leaning society to determine which opinion should be punished? Will thoughts become punishable?

Slippery slopes certainly do exist and ideological zealots cannot see past their convictions to avoid them. Thought police, much like spaceships, satellites, and holograms, were once the purview of science fiction novels. They may now be coming all too real.

Doom is Evident

May 1, 2014

Recent events make it clear that this country is doomed. We are closer to total demise than anyone wants to admit and it may be far too late to reverse course. Our government is no longer functioning in our best interests and Congress is polarized into inaction and powerless to curb a runaway administration.

The conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch, obtained e-mails about Benghazi that an impotent Congress repeatedly asked for and never received. These e-mails make it clear that Obama administration officials deliberately attributed the Benghazi terrorist attack (where four Americans were killed) to an internet video so it would not be considered a failure of Obama’s policy. It was a White House cover up for political purposes.

The mainstream press which once forced President Nixon to resign over a much less serious cover up does not see this as an important story. Instead, it is obsessed with an NBA team owner’s racist remark made in a private conversation that was secretly taped. Abuse of power and invasion of privacy, such as the NSA and IRS scandals, are of little concern for the press since Obama took office. In this “post racial” era, race trumps all.

The American public is deliberately being misinformed and kept in the dark. News stories are being cherry-picked by ideologues whose intent is to mold public opinion rather than report news. We can no longer believe what is reported and things we should know are being withheld. The watchdog is dead and our government agencies are taking advantage of it.

Our very language has been distorted to obfuscate the truth. “Pro-choice” defines killing a fetus. “Access” to health care, which always existed, means “free” health care. The “Affordable” Care Act is not very affordable. “Diversity” means conform to minority wishes or be punished. “Fair share” means someone wants what you worked for. “Tolerance” means my way or no way. “Climate change” is man-made global warming. The list is endless.

Our children are indoctrinated (brainwashed?) by an education system long overtaken by those more interested in social engineering than education. They are not prepared to recognize, let alone repair, the problems they will inherit. We seem incapable and/or unwilling to do it; therefore, doom is imminent.

How Wrong Can One Be?

March 5, 2014

Obama has turned out to be wrong most of the time but that is rarely acknowledged by true believers. For the idealistic, he “has to” be right, therefore, failure cannot occur, but it does and it has – consistently.

The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is turning out to be a catastrophe. Almost everything promised is turning out to be wrong while all the predictions heard from Senator Mike Enzi (and others) that were mocked are turning out to be right. Experts were ignored in favor of Obama’s “superior intelligence” and now provisions of the law are being delayed by Obama solely to keep the stink away from campaigning Democrats.

The Stimulus failed to revive the economy but believers claim it a success by saying our economy would be much worse if it was never put in place. Conveniently, that can never be proved, but it allows followers to deny failure and pretend they are right.

Global warming, rhetorically changed to “climate change” to ease embarrassment, fuels Obama’s continuing green policies even though predictions continue to prove wrong. Resent research conducted by the Environmental Policy Alliance shows that buildings receiving green energy certification use more energy than non-green buildings, but Obama’s “green” agenda continues to waste taxpayer money for idealistic purposes.

Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine is a direct result of Obama’s failed foreign policies. His inexperience and lack of decisiveness with Syria broadcast his weakness to the world. Putin has no fear of Obama and is taking full advantage just as Iran played him for a fool and is now on the verge of having a nuclear weapon. Allies (e.g. Israel) have been insulted while enemies have been appeased and USA world leadership and respect is at an all-time low.

Obama was also wrong about: Ushering in a “post racial” and “open door” administration; closing Gitmo; creating shovel ready jobs; Obamacare not being a tax; insurance rates going down; keeping one’s health plan; comprehensive immigration reform in his first term; Benghazi attack caused by video; Al Qaeda being decimated; unemployment reduction; and so much more.

How wrong can one be? For the sake of the country we can only hope we don’t find out.

Dizzy From Media Spin

January 14, 2014

“Bridgegate”, as the Christie traffic fiasco is being called, received 17 times more coverage from ABC, NBC, and CBS News in a 24-hour span than the IRS scandal received in 6 months. MSNBC is even going to run a one-hour special to discuss several “theories” about it.

MSNBC’s prescient Mika already provided her theory, stating: “we know Chris Christie and we know he would have known”. She also “knows” what is and isn’t a scandal, saying: “…to bring up Benghazi and the IRS is like flailing for some sort of distraction”. Four dead Americans have become just a distraction.

Bridgegate is a “twofer” for the liberal media. It’s an opportunity to smear a potential presidential candidate threatening Hillary’s chances and it is a substitute for Obama administration scandals that are getting harder and harder to ignore. It even has the additional benefit of keeping continuing negative Obamacare revelations from public awareness.

One of those revelations is that in 2014, 80% of individual costs to health insurance companies between $45,000 and $250,000 will be paid by the government. When insurance is purchased through the government exchanges, private insurance companies are only liable for costs below $45,000. Taxpayers pay the rest. This is not worthy to be a news story.

The continuing takeover by Al Qaida of abandoned Iraq isn’t news, either, except for NBC to tell us that the Iraq War wasn’t worth it. Obama made sure it wasn’t worth it when he failed (deliberately?) to maintain a military presence in Iraq after hastily pulling our troops out. His eagerness to get totally out of Iraq gave new life to defeated Al Qaida forces and they are now back. The media will protect Obama from any blame.

If you don’t like Obama and didn’t vote for him, you are a racist. If you don’t like Hillary and will not vote for her, you are a misogynist. For the media, it’s that simple – and it will be news. The so-called GOP war against women is THE talking point and you will hear it for the next three years as the media prepares to “make history”, again.

You are sure to become dizzy from the spin.

Progressive Derangement

November 26, 2013

Professor Noel Ignatiev at Massachusetts College seriously proclaimed to his class: “If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites…what can a white male do? He’s good for nothing”.

It has been reported that this tirade basically calling for white males to commit suicide was received by his predominately white, middle-class students with a standing ovation. The “Diversity Chronicle” found it remarkable that “a few far-right extremists” actually objected to the professor’s “sound and reasonable words” that “resonate with every enlightened and progressive mind”. Therefore, an enlightened Ivan Fernando from the “Diversity Chronicle” interviewed Ignatiev to clear up any confusion.

Professor Ignatiev clarified: “The goal of destroying the white race is simply so desirable, it boggles the mind trying to understand how anyone could possibly object to it…Those who object to my advice (destroying the cancer of humanity known as the white race), knowingly or perhaps unknowingly, are themselves white supremacists.” 

These are the words of wisdom from a retiring, tenured professor in our “progressive” education system. The fact that this is so blatantly racist that it makes Al Sharpton look moderate doesn’t even scratch the depth of its depravity, and our children are being brainwashed with twisted ideology like this in colleges all across the country. This is being paid for with second mortgages, student loans, and life-long savings.  

If this is the future you desire for your children, don’t vote. Stay home and let the deranged, squeaky wheels continue to steer the country. The past two presidential elections emboldened those who espouse this nonsense and it is being labeled “mainstream” thinking. Is it? If so, we are already past the point of no return. If not, we may still be able to avoid doom, but the “mainstream” has to vote to be heard.

Shocked Voters Deserve This Mess

October 31, 2013

Obamacare is falling apart badly enough to even have Chris Matthews, Obama’s biggest sycophant, question the president’s credibility on it. Hill Democrats are frustrated and publically acknowledging obvious problems for the first time. Self-righteous celebrities are now avoiding interviews about the health care law they were once blindly promoting for Obama.

It is now becoming clear that Obama knew long before now that his continued promise (lie?) of being able to keep existing health plans was not accurate. There should also be little doubt that he knew plan costs were not going to reduce across the board because that never made sense.

This fiasco should not be a surprise to anyone. It was accurately predicted by evil, heartless, racist, women-hating, war mongering Republicans who were, we were told, only against the health care law because they hate Obama and poor people. Warnings were given daily, heard only by those watching FOX News because the mainstream media didn’t want you to know.

Ignorant voters deserve this mess. Voting to make history rather than to make sense was stupid, and there is always a price to pay for stupidity. Apathy, too, comes at a price, so non-voters are just as deserving. We now have a healthcare system in turmoil, costing more, providing less, and promising even more problems and costs in the future.

Ignorance is often accompanied by arrogance, and the emotional investment many have in Obama produces both. A perfect example is MSNBC’s Ed Shultz who immediately went into denial proclaiming “there are no glitches” with the Obamacare rollout and blamed FOX News and Republicans for manufacturing glitches.

Others, such as Bill Maher and Howard Dean, have joined Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a surreal attempt to lay blame on Republicans who, en masse, voted against Obamacare. Denial is ramping up and reality is being distorted to fit the “dream”. With the farce of “comprehensive” immigration reform (aka amnesty) up next for ramming down our throats, reality is the administration’s worst enemy and must be avoided.

Unfortunately, wise and informed voters (a voter minority) will suffer, too, but with no shock. Their shock came when an inexperienced, far left freshman Senator with a background only in community organizing was voted in as president – twice.
