Fighting Back

Florida Judge Smacks Down Holder over Non-Citizens Voting
"Today's ruling puts the burden on the federal government to provide Florida with access to the Department of Homeland Security’s citizenship database," Scott said. "We know from just a small sample that an alarming number of non-citizens are on the voter rolls and many of them have illegally voted in past elections."
I'm sure this will put Florida on the enemies list alongside Arizona. That's good company.

Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death

The men who established this country knew what they believed and knew how to make a stand for what they believed. They put everything on the line. Our leaders now? Not so much.
When asked why he wasn't joining the [4 day] hunger strike, Rep Kucinich responded: "I'm a vegan, so I'm kind of hungry all the time. I'm here in moral support of their efforts."

Prepare for a Major Redistribution of Your Hard Earned Money

Killing Coal in America
In the Senate, on June 20, a resolution to block the imposition of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standards for hazardous air pollutant emissions from power plants failed.

The vote was 46 ayes to 53 nays. Among the Republicans who sided with the Democrats to kill the measure were Sens. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, Scott Brown of Massachusetts, and the two Maine Senators, Susan Collins and Olympia Snow, neither of whom is a Republican in anything but name only. Their support of the EPA regulation will cost Americans dearly in jobs and the cost of electricity.
Oh, you're poor and can't afford it? Fixed income? To bad, so sad. Take heart, Obama and his cast of characters love ya. Apparently, those five Republicans listed above do, too.

Fast and Furious is Worse Than Watergate

Media Obsessed with Watergate, Not Fast and Furious
There are many elements that make Fast and Furious #WorseThanWatergate. Brian Terry's death and the deaths of 300+ Mexicans should be first on that list. Nobody died in Watergate. It was a botched burglary of Democrat campaign headquarters by Republican operatives. Then came the Richard Nixon cover-up. We have always been told the cover-up was worse (which it was), and it brought down a President. In Fast and Furious, both the operation and the attempted cover-up are scandalous. Holder has already lied many times to Congress, and now Barack Obama has become the first President to use Executive Privilege to keep secret documents he claims he has never seen. The media can't see the historic relevance here, because they don't want to see it. Blind by choice.

Concocting a scheme to put the most dangerous hand-held weapons on the planet in the hands of Mexican drug cartels
[and blame American laws and law-abiding gun store owners - Otto] should be enough to bury anybody and everybody responsible.
Fast and Furious is worse than Watergate. Keep sayin' it, because the media wants to bury it.

We're Not Escaping This Mess by Way of Space

It's been 35 years and 11 billion miles and Voyager 1 is still not in interstellar space.
NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft has encountered a new environment more than 11 billion miles from Earth, suggesting that the venerable probe is on the cusp of leaving the solar system.
It's nowhere near another star, never mind another star with a habitable planet. We can't run away.

Oh, How Things Have Changed

But not for the better. Change is not always better.

I like David Kupelian and have read and enjoyed 2 of his books, The Marketing of Evil and How Evil Works. I highly recommend them both. Here, in his latest commentary, he relates a story about his father:

America's Marxist picnic
I could go on and on. These oft-cited facts merely scratch the surface of Obama's long-term radicalism. But the point in juxtaposing my father's story and Obama's is as inescapable as it is troubling:

My dad, a true American who was immeasurably grateful and loyal to his adopted country, could have lost everything because his mother went to a church picnic and picked up a Marxist rag.

That was then. But now, sitting in the White House is a man who has spent most of his entire life immersed in Marxist ideology, influences, mentors and benefactors. He has proven, as president, that he is still fully committed to dragging America – kicking and screaming if necessary (recall the outrageous and illegal way Obamacare was passed) – into a new era of unprecedented, government-coerced redistribution of wealth and power. To be precise: Marxism.

It would be folly, of course, to imagine that Obama just magically appeared out of thin air to lead a nation of liberty-loving, responsible, moral, right-thinking grownups leftward. America has been moving in this sad direction for decades. No, not under the "Marxist" label, or any of those other nasty words of yesteryear, like "socialism" or "communism" or "collectivism." They've all been carefully replaced by warm-and-cuddly terms like "fairness," "economic justice," "redistribution," "progressivism" and – as an off-script Obama famously told Joe the Plumber – "spread[ing] the wealth around."

The spirit of socialism has taken root and flowered spectacularly in America, especially in all of our elite, idea-generating institutions like education, the news and entertainment media, and, of course, government. The original American spirit – stout, risk-taking, God-fearing, responsible, adult – has progressively been displaced by the spirit of dependency and helplessness, of perpetual grievance and victimization, and most of all, of envy and resentment. All of which cries out for ever bigger government.

At Least He's the Best at Something

President Obama: The Biggest Government Spender In World History
The U.S. has never before had a President who thinks so little of the American people that he imagines he can win re-election running on the opposite of reality. But that is the reality of President Obama today.
There are, unfortunately, a lot of Americans operating on the opposite of reality. Hopefully, not as many as it sometimes seems.
He knows very well that he is not a careful spender. His whole mission is to transform the U.S. not into a Big Government country, but a Huge Government country, because only a country run by a Huge Government can be satisfactorily controlled by superior, all wise and beneficent individuals like himself. That is why he is at minimum a Swedish socialist, if not worse. Notice, though, how far behind the times he and his weak minded supporters are, as even the Swedes have abandoned Swedish socialism as a failure.

The New American Justice Department

Holder Defends Foreigners Voting in Florida Elections
The real scandal in the fight between Florida and the Eric Holder Justice Department is that Holder is ultimately defending foreigners voting in American elections.
When was the last time you got to vote in Mexican elections?

Tyranny Cannot Coexist with the Individual Right to Bear Arms.

Chinese plot to strip Americans of firearms

I don't know if I'd call it a plot, it's a report. I know they would love to see America disarmed, however. LOVE. So would many of our politicians.
I find it interesting that the first attack of the Communist Chinese against U.S. social policy targets the means by which we secure our other rights. Yes, the U.S. is awash in firearms of every conceivable design and capability, but the very numbers of those firearms belies the suggestion that it is the guns that cause the crimes. If this were true, we would have all killed each other long ago.

Democrats Need a Permanent Underclass

This guy is hitting the nail on the head.
"When they put you on a check, it isn't like they're putting you on a hundred grand a year. No, they're putting you on ten grand a year - if that! But ten grand a year plus a little food stamps and some cheap-ass crappy government housing with cockroaches - that's your life. That's your life under the Democrats plan. But they need that permanent underclass. Here's the thing about the Hispanics ... these aren't lazy people, these are not people who come here because they want to get on the government dole, I honestly believe that. I believe that the Hispanics that are coming across the southern border of the United States illegally are coming here for opportunity, they're coming here for jobs, for a better life for them and their families. They're very family oriented people, in fact a lot of the money that they make they send home to their families in Mexico. The whole concept of family, the whole concept of working, the whole concept of trying to better your position in life, those are Republican values. The sad thing about it is that they come here and they get it in their head that the Democrats are for the working man, the Democrats are for the poor and in reality the Democrats are for the poor alright, but they need you to stay poor. They are not looking for you to ever crawl out of a hole. That's not gonna work for them, because what they are buying is a life-time voter and the sad part about it is they get that voter cheap."

It Is Written?

Well, that explains that.

I will not be quoting anything from that little news item, you'll just have to go and read it for yourself. Suffice to say, it is a creative explanation by a Muslim cleric as to the cause of homosexuality and whoredom. This reminded me of the following quote I had earmarked. It concerns Christians, and yes, some Christians and so-called Christians are guilty of this but I don't think anyone excels at it quite so well as some of those of the Muslim faith.
It often happens that a non-Christian derives from the clearest arguments, or from the evidence of his senses, certain scientific knowledge about the heavens and the earth – about the size or distance or movements or revolutions of the stars, about certain eclipses of the sun and moon, about the course of the seasons and years, about the nature of animals and plants and minerals, and other such things.

It is both improper and mischievous for any Christian man to speak on such matters as if so authorized by scripture and yet talk so foolishly that the unbeliever, observing the extravagance of his mistakes, is scarcely able to keep from laughing. And the real trouble is not so much that the man is laughed at for his blunders, but that the writers of Scripture are believed to have taught such things, and are thus condemned and rejected as ignorant by people outside the Church, to the great loss of those whose salvation was so much desire.

They find one belonging to the Christian body so far wrong on a subject they themselves know so well; and, on top of this, find him enforcing his groundless opinions by the authority of our Holy Bible. So they come to regard the scriptures as unsound on subjects they have learned by observation or by unquestioned evidence. Are they likely therefore to put there trust in these Scriptures about the resurrection of the dead, the hope of eternal life, and the kingdom of heaven?

What trouble and sorrow some presumptuous men bring on their more careful brethren. When charged with wrong notions by non-Christians, they try to bolster their wrong assertions by the Bible, even quoting inaccurately what they think will suit there purpose and putting forth a lot of talk without understanding what they are saying.

As quoted in Faith That Makes Sense, by J. Edwin Orr, From the Latin, De Genesi ad Litteram, Book I, Chapter xix, 39, written by Saint Augustine in the fourth century.

Christians: Please be careful what you teach and by what authority you claim to teach it. By some, all Christians are considered the same as the craziest person they ever heard quote a Bible verse, notwithstanding, anyone can buy a Bible or claim to be Christian.

Muslims: It's your call.

Say No to Socialism

The Socialist Mask of Marxism
History usually repeats itself, and if you have lived two lives, as I have done, you have a good chance of seeing that re-enactment with your own eyes. In 1978, I paid with two death sentences from my native Romania for helping her people rid themselves of their Marxist dictatorship, carefully disguised as socialism. Thirty years later I witnessed how the same Marxism, camouflaged as socialism, began infecting the shores of my adoptive country, the United States, which had just won a 44-year Cold War against Marxism and against its earthly incarnation, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

In a 2008 column titled "Big Political Shifts Are Underway," Joelle Fishman, chairman of the Action Commission of the Communist Party USA, strongly endorsed the Democratic Party’s candidate for the White House, appealing to all working people in the United States to back Senator Barack Obama, in order to provide "a landslide defeat of the Republican ultra-right."

That new alliance between the Democratic Party and the Communist Party was a first in the history of the United States, the world's headquarters of democracy and free enterprise. In November 2008, over 65 million Americans who were unable to identify the stealth virus of Marxism that was infecting the Democratic Party voted to give this party the White House and both chambers of Congress.

Shocked and Disgusted

I have absolutely no idea if what Alex Jones believes is true (I don't actually believe it), I don't even know who Alex Jones is (and don't care enough to Google it)- let's just say that after reading this story and now knowing that roasted fetal corpses covered in gold leaf actually exist, and with all the cannibal stories popping up lately, finding out the story was true would not shock me any more than I already am.

Alex Jones Believes Bilderberg Attendees Ship in Gold-Covered Roasted Babies to Eat
Last month, police in Thailand arrested a British citizen after six roasted fetal corpses were found in his luggage. The bodies were believed to be between two and seven months old, according to the Guardian. Some were plated in gold leaf, apparently for use in black magic rituals.
