"If at age 20 you are a conservative then you have no heart. If at age 30 you are a liberal then you have no brains."
Sir Winston Churchill
ADVOCATE FOR TERM LIMITS

Obama obviously knows very little about economics, specifically that "Society stagnates when independent productive achievers begin to be socially demonized and even punished for their accomplishments." This dilemma fogs Obama's reality. To him, accepting this truth is a "false choice", his answer to things he doesn't understand. And by the way... where is John Galt?

TPMS
If your first reaction to the beheading of photo journalist James Foley was to rush to the defense of Muslims or Islam in general, I strongly suspect you need immediate psychiatric help because you are suffering from "Terminal Progressive Multicultural Schizophrenia".  TPMS is a disease of the left whose victims deny reality even when reality has a knife to their throat. 
 
TPMS causes people to believe in fantasy world views and never allow facts or knowledge held by people with first hand experience to affect their opinions. 
 
ISIS aka ISIL aka The Islamic State aka Da'esh  is a demonic monstrosity straight out of the gates of Hell.  Those moral relativists with TPMS who don't believe in evil are about to be shocked because evil is coming after them in ways that their worst nightmares  couldn't conjure up.
 
For those TPMS sufferers who want to ignore this wanton act of savage butchery or ISIS itself so that they can comfortably go back to their I-Pads or Droid phones and pretend that the real world our leaders have created doesn't exist...this is your wake up call!
 
These are not people we are dealing with.  They have abandoned their humanity.  The cannot be reasoned with.  They will not negotiate as normal political entities do.  They must be wiped out like vermin or rabid dogs.  They must be hunted down and put down.  Rights and laws are for humans.  ISIS is comprised of demons.  ISIS  is political Islam in its purest form and as such cannot and should not be contained because it is  political "Ebola" that lives to spill as much blood as it can in the name of Allah.  It must instead be eradicated.
 
Islam should not be defended  because Islam and so called moderate Muslims have allowed this to happen.  Far too many have remained either silent or inactive when it came to cleaning up their own house thereby allowing the cancer to spread.   The truth is that there is very little distance between ISIS and al-Qaeda or Hamas or the Taliban or Boko Haram or al-Shabaab , the Chechens who murdered children in Beslan, the Muslim Brotherhood, Wahabism, Salafism, Hezbollah, Iran and home based groups like CAIR whose major purpose is covering up or excusing atrocities. 
 
Islam in the main and the American/European hard left have been the midwives to this 21st century retreat to medievalism by using PC/progressive/religious rationales to disguise their crime and their guilt. Now it is time to end this madness.
 
 No more "Taqiyya" or saying one thing to the infidel and another to the "Ummah"or fellow Muslims.  No more "Protocols of the Elders of Zion".  No more "Shaheeds".  No more suicide belts.  No more masked cowards in black shouting "Allahu Akbar" after they behead or kill some one.  No more Sharia in place of civil government and Constitutional law.  No more neo-Nazism.  No more anti-Semitism.  No more misogyny.  No more "honor killings" No more "Dhimmitude".  No more killing Christians.  No more pretending they are victims.  No more intolerance.  No more excuses for disgusting  barbaric behavior by their left wing radical allies.
 
ISIS is  the consequence of Political Islam and Progressives coming together to destroy a common enemy...western civilization...Israel...the U.S....individual freedom...us.   It is both disgusting and ominous to see signs reading "ISIS is here" at the protests in Ferguson Mo. last week.
 
Our dysfunctional, gutless, TPMS political system which places party over country and ideologies over even party also shares blame.  We have been fighting a war on terror for over 13 years except for the fact that we never really fought to win a total victory over terror because that would have been a form of military "profiling".   The idea that we are going to treat the slaughter of James Foley as a criminal matter is laughable.  Jamie Gorelick's pre 9/11 "Chinese wall" is now officially back with a vengence.  It is forbidden to even suggest that we are at war with a strain of fundamental Islam that is an existential threat.  What is Holder going to do...send as many FBI agents as he sent to Ferguson to Syria? 
 
TPMS causes people to forget that"Mad dog " ISIS and all their counterparts love death and destruction to serve their Satanic ends.  In Sura 7 verses 16-18 of the Quran,  Satan or Iblis says to Allah  Because thou hast thrown me out of the way, lo! I will lie in wait for them on thy straight way: Then will I assault them from before them and behind them, from their right and their left: Nor wilt thou find, in most of them, gratitude (for thy mercies).” (God) said: “Get out from this, disgraced and expelled. If any of them follow thee – Hell will I fill with you all.”
 
Too many Muslims have now taken the path of Iblis.  The entire world now needs to be part of  the exorcism of this cancer.  Those with TPMS still want us to believe that no threat exists.  We however all need to remember the famous line from "The Usual Suspects" ... "The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist".

Who is Behind ISIS

Yvonne Ridley
I  have no idea where the Islamic State/ISIS/ISIL or whatever name it uses  came from, and I'm just as baffled by the roots of its violent  ideology. While I never pretend to speak for the diverse community of  Muslims living in Britain today, I reckon my views on this will be  echoed by the majority who have watched with growing concern the  unprecedented rise of this group.

However, just as unprecedented is the childish invective being spewed  out by Islamophobes, racists and so-called terrorism experts encouraged  by some sections of the British media. They have not helped at all.

While I've blocked most of the jack-booted trolls who patrol  Twitterland demanding that anyone who is or even looks like a Muslim  should launch an immediate protest march against ISIS, I'm amazed that  similar rhetoric is being pushed by elements of the media.

There are many reasons why I've not spoken out against ISIS. For a  start, I'm not sure who it is, where it came from or how it is funded.  I've not seen such a militarily- and strategically-savvy fighting force  emerge in the Middle East before, other than the highly disciplined and  much feared Hezbollah. I, like many others, want to know a little bit  more about ISIS before making public comments.

Secondly, why should I organise a march against ISIS? I am not  responsible for its actions, just as my Jewish friends are not  responsible – and nor should they be - for the actions of that other  group of violent psychos in the Middle East, the Israeli military. While  ISIS enforcers wield head- and limb-chopping knives, Israel drops bombs  called Daisy Cutters which also decapitate and maim anyone caught in  the fallout.

Thirdly, my silence over ISIS does not mean that I support the group  even if some fools take my silence as a sign that I do. Only when I ask  some male tweeters to apologise on behalf of rapists, on the grounds  that every rapist is a man so they must all be somehow culpable, does  the penny drop; occasionally I'll get a muffled apology.

SOCIAL JUSTICE AND THE SOCIAL CONTRACT

Social Justice has come to mean permission to resort to mob rule, wanton destruction of private and public property,looting, Molotov cocktails, disrespect for the Police and at times physical attacks on and the shooting of others.  The war for Social Justice is a mask covering a war on the Social Contract. The dirty little secret is that this has been going on for a very long time.
"No Justice, No Peace"today means that those chanting this don't want justice via the rule of law to prevail.  It has come to mean the demand for  instantaneous preconceived punishment to be applied and the facts and the truth as determined by law enforcement, Judges and juries be ignored.
We are seeing all of this now in Ferguson Missouri, where the Governor has announced a state of emergency, called in the National Guard and established a curfew which has failed to stop the looting.  To a much lesser extent it also exists in Staten Island, New York.  In each instance two black males died after encounters with a white cop.  Both of the deceased were allegedly breaking the law, albeit in minor ways.
That these two ended up dead is a tragedy.  That both situations were seized upon by racial arsonists like Al Sharpton and criminals determined to exploit the racial anger and chaos are also tragedies.  That Barack Obama felt once again the need to interject himself in Ferguson by equating police actions with criminal activity is a third and unnecessary tragedy.

THE PEOPLE ON THE MOUNTAIN

The Yezidis are an ancient Kurdish/Arab people with a religion that combines elements of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Zoroastrianism and ancient pre monotheistic  devotion to the sun, the moon, water, fire, earth and air.  There were approximately 70,000 Yezidis in  Iraq, mostly in Nineveh Province near Mosul in the town of Sinjar until they were forced to flee from the violence of the Islamic State or ISIS.


Now 40,000 to 50,000 of them have fled to Mount Sinjar, a holy place to them since they believe that this is where Noah's Ark came to rest after the great flood.  The mountain has always been their home in Iraq with the remaining 180,000 Yezidis in the world living in Syria, Turkey, Iran, Armenia and Georgia.

So the question remains as to why the ISIS wants so desperately to commit genocide on a peaceful people with no homeland , who bother no one and who have lived peacefully amongst both Christians  and Muslims for centuries. 

The simple answer is that the Caliphate that Abu Bakr al-Bagdadi is creating in the 21st century belongs in the 7th century.  The IS will tolerate  no one who does not subscribe to their fundamental and violent version of Islam for very long even if they pay the Jizya tax and assume the mantle of second class Dhimmitude.  They also practice "Takfir" which is determining that those thought formerly to be pious Muslims are in fact not  because they do not believe in the Caliph's version of Islam.  This then make them Kaffirs and subject to death as apostates.

The more complicated answer is that the Yezidis have been looked upon by many Muslims and Christians alike to be devil worshipers and thus beyond the pale.  The central figure in their belief system is Malek Taus, the Peacock Angel who is the greatest of seven angels left by God after the creation to look after the world.  The alternate name of Malek Taus is "Shaitan" which is the Arabic name for Satan.

Again...Never Again


AGAIN...NEVER AGAIN
 
Israeli-flag.jpg (400×298)
Never again has come again.  The Jew haters of the Islamic world, Europe and the "progressive" left of the Democratic Party are all marching in lock step in demanding that Israel stop defending itself and instead lay down and let the "final" final solution of the new Shoah take its inevitable course.
 
 Hamas, hiding behind women and children, with rockets and missiles stored in UN schools, clinics, crowded tenements and terror tunnels beneath hospitals, nursing homes and Mosques,  intends to sacrifice innocent people in order to win a public relations victory aided by an anti-Zionist/anti-Semitic world press.  Their weapons are photos and videos of dead and maimed children and wailing women, who in many circumstances  were not allowed by Hamas to seek shelter after the IDF warned occupants of targeted buildings that they were going to bomb them.   Despite all of this, Obama over and over signals his support for Hamas by the immoral use of moral equivalency  in condemning  the violence. 
 
And then of course there is the simple question of why Hamas who has been attacking Israel for nine years has never built real shelters for the residents of Gaza, whom they rule? 
 
Hamas has said for years that they will ultimately defeat the Jewish state because they love death and Israel loves life.  Thus in the primordial swamp that is the modern Middle East, this logic makes Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, Iran, the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, Ansar el-Sharia, el-Shabaab and all the other savages there and across the globe in their minds, the inevitable winners.  This fanatical belief in victory through holy terror is augmented by the support of western social justice radicals whose moral relativism is so infected with disease that even cutting off the heads of innocent people is ok if it will lead to the destruction of the big and little "Satans".

A NATION OF LAWS

The DC Circuit Court recently handed down a 2 to 1 decision in a case entitled Halbig v Burwell.  That decision sent shock waves through the Beltway because it ruled that anyone who receives health care through an exchange established  by the Federal Government and not by a state is not eligible for and should not receive a Federal subsidy in the form of a tax credit or other relief.  "Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states," wrote Judge Thomas Griffith, who was joined in the majority decision by Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph.
The  ACA was purposely designed to make the states the portals whereby "ObamaCare" was delivered.  Confining the subsidies to qualified individuals who purchased their health insurance through a state created "Marketplace " was a deliberate effort to create incentives for the states to participate, as those who conceived and wrote the law intended.  The language is as the court noted, plain and unambiguous leaving little to no confusion as to its intent.  
36 states however, refused to establish an exchange thereby requiring the Federal government to step in and create a Federal Exchange.  As a result, 4.7 million Americans who enrolled through the Federal exchange and who have been receiving subsidies due to an IRS ruling which turned the plain language of the statute on its head, may down the road lose this assistance.  This loss is estimated to  increase the cost of their coverage by a factor times four or greater and would gut "ObamaCare" to the bone.

HE WORKS HARD FOR THE MONEY

On Thursday July 17, 2014. Israel began a land, sea and air incursion into the Gaza Strip, in order to neutralize Hamas, one of the most pestilent Islamic terror groups on earth.  On that same day Pro Russian separatists, most probably working with or under the command of Russian Federation Spetsnaz forces in the rebel Donets region of the Ukraine, used a very sophisticated ground to air missile system to shoot down a  Malaysian Air 777 passenger jet  killing all 298 on board.  This included 80 children, 3 infants and at least one American citizen.
 
While all of this was unfolding, Barack Obama went to two fund raisers in Manhattan.  Six days later as the fighting in Gaza intensified and the bodies of the dead from MH-17 were put into body bags , he jetted out to the west coast for six more.
 
This was not the first time he has shown such bizarre detachment.  He did exactly the same thing the day after Benghazi,  when the Russians invaded the Crimea,  and most recently in Texas at the peak of the crisis of the "Border Children.  He steadfastly refused to visit the southern border or any of the detention camps where the children were being warehoused.
 
Having to face the predictable outcomes of his awful domestic and foreign policies is not Obamas strong suit.  His vision of being President is  first and foremost being adored by either mega-rich celebrities in Hollywood where he is the star and they are relegated to supporting roles or  Texas oil men or bankers, hedge fund moguls and financial titans from Wall Street  or billionaire "geeks" from Silicone Valley... and the list goes on. 
 
These are the comforts zones for the strangest man ever to be President.  These venues appeal to him even more than the golf course or extravagant vacations which have now cost the taxpayers over $44 million.

How to win in 2016

2016 

Both Republican and Democrat presidential candidates should understand that to win in 2016 will mean changing the dangerous trajectory that Obama and the "progressives" have inflicted on the nation.  In a bi-partisan manner, if possible, they should  demonstrate to an exhausted, skeptical, fearful and angry public that the country can be turned around and led to growth, strength, full time jobs with good wages, individual freedom and prosperity.

This will mean the return of "certainty" to our domestic and foreign affairs, reestablishing the rule of law and renewing national fidelity to the Constitution.  At a minimum these will require a sharp curtailment of the administrative state that the left so reveres.  It will also necessitate a well thought out  and long overdue shrinkage of a bloated and morbidly obese Federal government.   
Regulatory and other governmental agencies that have become power mad should be abolished and/or de-funded and only their most fundamental and essential legal functions should be preserved.  The IRS, EPA, CSB, NLRB, OSHA, NRC, BLM, NMB, FERC AND FEC have all violated their mandates and are no longer trusted.  Add to this, DoJ, DVA  and HHS which also act like imperious thugs and you begin to see a government out of control, behaving like criminals and contemptuous of the people who pay their salaries. 

The country must grow and become the most prosperous nation on the globe once again.  We must become energy independent in such a way that it results in us have the cheapest and most varied amount of power in the world causing investments and job creation to flow into the country.
We must fix what the Heritage Foundation calls our "confused, unfocused and dysfunctional"  immigration system by closing the southern border and then rethinking logically and systematically, what our immigration priorities will be.  For those here legally and illegally criminal behavior must result in immediate deportation after conviction and punishment.  Amnesty with a path to citizenship should be limited to those who were brought here as small children and those who serve honorably in the military.  Work visas should be available for those who have skills in areas experiencing difficulties in filling openings or capital to invest in legitimate job creating businesses.  Interior enforcement should be robust and unambiguous.  The primary goal of immigration should be patriotic assimilation into an equal opportunity society and not multicultural assimilation into a dependency society with open borders.

ABORTION AND OTHER "SACRAMENTS"

Abortion has become a secular sacrament for the secular left. 
The response by so called "feminists" and Democratic female politicians to the "Hobby Lobby" decision would have you believe that Sharia law  has just been instituted in the United States.  The irony in this is that normally these same actors are silent about the real evils of Sharia inflicted on women in Islamic countries.  They explain this by not wanting to be" Islamophobic" and so it goes in the "progressive asylum" that America has become.
We have heard from Hillary and NOW and Sandra Fluke and Elizabeth Warren and Debbie Wasserman- Schultz and of course  Nancy Pelosi, who just the day before told us that border states and Mexico are just one big community with a river running through it.  "San Fran Nan" also seems unfazed by a Cardinal's call to deny her communion.  I supposed she sees it as just another way to lose weight.
Hillary's denouncement is also ironic since the decision was based on the regulatory requirement to provide birth control  being a violation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which was signed into law by Bill Clinton in 1993.  Put more succinctly this was not an "ObamaCare" statutory requirement ...it was an Obama personal requirement.
The always foaming at the mouth Dems see the Burwell v Hobby Lobby decision handed down on June 30th as a new opportunity to whip up the base in order to avoid disaster at the polls in November.  The very idea that people who own the majority share of for profit companies might have genuinely held religious beliefs seems quite beyond their ken.

NO TAXATION WITHOUT A REAL INVESTIGATION

The IRS is a government agency on life support!  As many have said before me, it is and has been the most hated and feared agency in the history of the US.  Now it is also the most distrusted and despised.
Being hated as a part of a bureaucracy is not a fatal flaw but being mistrusted in a democracy is.  The American people will not for long countenance the scandal that is turning into a demand for a criminal investigation.  This IRS scandal is far more serious than the one that faced the Nixon Presidency where the "plumbers" and the President merely "endeavored" to use  the agency to attack their enemies. 
In the present situation, the feeling is mounting that crimes have been committed, a Special Prosecutor should be appointed and people should go to jail.
Lois Lerner has a history of inappropriate partisan activity and she comes across as contemptuous of both the Congress and the people who paid her salary but she and others could not have concocted and managed  this assault on the enemies of Obama, without orders from above.  Nine Democratic Senators   wanted to sic the IRS on 501 (c) (3) and 501 (c) (4) tax exempt applicants whom they believed privately were political enemies while claiming publicly they were law breakers but they would not have taken this unethical and probably illegal path without a White House which micro manages all things political...giving the OK.

REPUBLICANS


Last week I excoriated Democrats for being a party that no longer believes in the US Constitution, individual rights and the rule of law.  Today I excoriate the Republicans for being unable or unwilling to defend, protect and preserve the same.
This administration is the greatest law breaker in the history of the Republic and the President both deserves and must be impeached.  The problem is that because impeachment is a political solution to political and/or criminal "high crimes and misdemeanors" you cannot successful impeach anyone unless you have 67 votes in the Senate.  That in turn would mean that you have convinced a significant number of Senators in both parties that the  acts which warrant impeachment must be exorcised and more importantly the people want this to be done.
The Republican Party have begun to do neither.  In fact it is doubtful that they could even muster all 45 Republican votes in the Senate if they should have to vote on Articles of Impeachment.
The reasons for these are political and illustrate a timidity and cluelessness  that make the party of Lincoln, TR, Eisenhower and Reagan,  political eunuchs of historical precedent.  They are so fearful of being labled  "racists" for rightfully beginning to build a case that is self evident, to impeach the worst, most dangerous and most destructive President in our history, that they are in a state of political paralysis.  Meanwhile the country and the people suffer.
