"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?

A MODERN TALE OF TWO CITIES


IT WAS THE BEST OF TIMES IF YOU WERE CRAZY, IT WAS THE WORST OF TIMES IF YOU WERE SANE, IT WAS THE AGE OF DECEIT, IT WAS THE AGE OF IGNORANCE, IT WAS THE EPOCH OF FALSE MESSIAHS, IT WAS THE EPOCH OF LYING RULERS, IT WAS THE SEASON OF MURDER, IT WAS THE SEASON OF MARTYRS, IT WAS THE SPRING OF DEPENDENCY, IT WAS THE WINTER OF UNCERTAINTY, WE HAD EVERYTHING BEFORE US IN THE PAST, WE HAD NOTHING BEFORE US IN THE PRESENT, WE WE'RE ALL GOING DIRECT TO CALAMITY, WE WERE ALL GOING DIRECT INTO THE DARK UNKNOWN- IN SHORT THE PERIOD WAS SO FAR LIKE PERIODS OF TURBULENT DISASTER IN THE PAST THAT SOME OF ITS MOST DESPICABLE AUTHORITIES INSISTED ON IT BEING RECEIVED AS GOOD WHEN IT WAS MOSTLY BAD IN THE SUPERLATIVE DEGREE OF PROPAGANDA BEING PEDDLED AS TRUTH!
(with apologies to Charles Dickens )


Washington D. C. and New York City are capitals. One of the nation and the other of the world. What happens in either has enormous impact on people far removed from those who actually live there. With their access to political, economic and cultural power, they set things in motion for everyone else and often what they set in motion is not good.


In both D.C. and NYC the inmates are running the asylum. Standards, laws, rules and regulations are now subject to the whim of those in charge. In both cities the governments are run by zealots who dislike law and order, capitalism, religion with the exception of Islam, conservatives, educational choice, tax cuts, non union workers, Israel, the military, cops, free market health care, energy provided through coal, gas, nuclear and oil, counter terrorism and the Constitution for starters.


In Washington, President Obama has crippled the economic, military and political power of the United States. He has done everything possible to create a socialist nation that is not the freest or the strongest nation on the globe. He has undermined the rule of law and the Constitution and used the agencies of government to attack and punish his enemies. His Health Care, tax, budget and energy policies have made most Americans poorer save the wealthiest 1% whom he rails against and then solicits money from.
His administration is inept, amateurish,incompetent, ideologically driven, prone to thuggery, illegal activities, race baiting, using dual standards for friends and enemies and unable or unwilling to solve the real problems of real people.


His handling of the IRS , Benghazi, Ebola, ISIS, ObamaCare, the Ukraine, Russia, China, Iran, immigration, energy and Syria and Iraq are just a few examples of a man who through his own ineptitude or willful design has now built a scaffold to hang himself on as the country burns. To be fair he did not do this alone he had the help of a Democratic Party comprised of people like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid who has castrated the Senate and not allowed even bi-partisan bills to see the light of day. Congress does not function because Obama, Pelosi, and Reid don't want it to. If it did they would not be able to blame the Republicans any more.

REBELS WITHOUT A CLUE

High School students in Jefferson County Colorado are up in arms over an Advanced Placement History Curriculum that wants to promote patriotism, the benefits of free enterprise and the cessation of promoting civil disorder and instead stressing civic responsibility. For many in the media this has been deemed "controversial" and Media Matters for America, a progressive, left wing Soros funded entity which blames Fox News for this controversy, has moved in to ratchet up the discontent over efforts to stimulate love of country. 
These students are pawns yet again in the multi generational crusade to portray the U. S. as a bad country and the source of evil both domestically and in foreign affairs. 
Advocates for the new curriculum say historic figures such as Franklin, Jefferson, Martin Luther King and Madison are currently minimized while the wars against the Indians, the Black Panther Party, slavery (without any mention of the Gettysburg Address) and the dropping of the A bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki are prominent. In fact the question is asked with regard to the latter "Does this makes you question the values of America!" 
Are these people kidding? Do they have any historical perspective or knowledge whatsoever as to what the country had gone through during WW II or the bloody sacrifices to free black Americans in bondage of the American Civil War? It is difficult to impossible to believe they  want balance or objectivity.

COMFORTABLE IN THEIR OWN IGNORANCE

Recently Bill Maher of all people, challenged Charlie Roses's understanding of Islam which charitably put was sort of like Baptists and Muslims were cut from the same theological cloth.  Maher demolished Rose and exposed an all too common intellectual laziness that both liberals and progressives demonstrate on a consistent basis.  Simply put they are guilty of either willful or woeful ignorance.
Willful ignorance is a state of mind where ideology is substituted for reality and thus bad things happen.  Woeful ignorance is when people are badly educated (often by ideologues) and when they become active in the real world...bad things happen.  In either event those suffering from either are seemingly comfortable in their own ignorance. 
Academia today is an intellectual cesspool masquerading as a font of knowledge which indulges adolescent utopian fantasies divorced from the human condition.  Since the academic elite have an anti-America bent, its message is that the world is a mess because of rich, white, male, straight, religious Americans who stole everything they have from the "have nots".   In other words behind every "bank account" there is now a great crime! This has become the monolithic launch pad for "being educated and credentialed" for far too many of the leaders of tomorrow who cannot distinguish propaganda for fact.
Generations of  impressionable young people beginning in the sixties, have created a vivid false reality which is buttressed daily by celebrities and the media and which causes them not to recognize evil when it stares them in the face.  In this false universe they proceed to elect incompetent poseurs who parrot feel good slogans but who are incapable of solving problems.
All too often their causes degenerate into pseudo-religions because they cannot be defended in either the arenas  of either faith or reason.  Climate change and global warming come to mind.  Both have computer models that omit vital data and all too often are gamed to provide conclusions that fit a pre-established narrative and an improvable therm which in reality is not science  but  dogma.

WAR AS A MEANS OF PEACE

The new war began with bombing on  Monday evening at 9:26 PM EST.   Twenty sites around Raqqa, the northern Syrian  which serves as the capital for the Islamic State, were hit by air strikes from the U.S., Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates assisted by Qater.
These strikes included the use of B-1 Bombers, F-16 and F-18 fighter jets, F-22 stealth Raptors, Predator Drones and Tomahawk Missiles fired from off shore aircraft carriers such as the USS Arleigh Burke.
The U.S. alone attacked positions in Eastern Syria held by the al-Qaeda affiliated Khorasan Front from Central Asia who were using these sites as staging areas for terrorist attacks on commercial passenger jets and the American homeland.
And so the war began and the question remains what is next?
First... almost every military person either serving or retired who has commented on the President's strategy has stated that ground troops are necessary to achieve the degradation and destruction of ISIS.  Therefore how fast will we get to this stage and whose boots will be on the ground?   
Second...where are the other Muslim and Arab nations in this fight?  The President and Secretary of State Kerry have done "yeoman's work" in getting Sunnis to fight other Sunnis but some big regional actors are missing.
Where is Egypt and where is Turkey which after all is a member of NATO?  Turkey has been non-committal and reluctant to engage ISIS which it has assisted in the past.  Turkey also has the largest standing army in the area but has said that its hesitancy was due to forty Turkish nationals including the Turkish Consul General being held captive in Mosul.  They have now been released and the elusive and slippery Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan, an ally of the Muslim Brotherhood, continues to dodge. 

THE WEEK OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY 09/08-09/15 20014

Barack Obama ploughs ahead, oblivious to reality and common sense.  He politicizes the Ebola plague and sends 3000 "boots on the ground" to West Africa which is far more than he is sending to Iraq and Syria.  A new crisis every week continues apace! 
The Democratic party has become the progressive/ social justice/ socialist party comprised of victim groups towards which they claim, Republicans, Conservatives and the "Tea Party" are constantly at war with.  The politically correct/ multicultural screed they practice separates Americans from one another by race, gender, age, income, language, religion or the lack there of, sexual preference, ethnicity and disability and is their perpetual campaign platform.  Then they lie and make things up.  Democrats are not merely the pied pipers of dissolution but are really the main problem as they march in lockstep and tear the country asunder.
Obama and his underlings display an unbelievable lack of cohesion as he , his Secretaries of State and Defense, National Security Advisor, Press Secretary, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs and other Generals present dramatically different versions of what the mission is against ISIS.
The coalitions he spoke of as if they were a "fait accompli" are simply not!  Instead he pleads with a reluctant  if not duplicitous, undefined group who will wait and see how committed this President is to "degrading and  destroying" the most evil entity since the Nazi Party.

THE 30,500 ARE NOT PRESBYTERIANS!

The day after the President of the United States gave his first wartime speech, 13 years into America's long march against Islamic extremism, his Secretary of State declared we were not at war with ISIS but “What we are doing is engaging in a very significant counter-terrorism operation, and it's going to go on for some period of time". 

This confusion was echoed by Susan Rice and Marie Harf and contradicted by Josh Ernest at the White House and at the Pentagon.  It seemed lost on some that Obama was basing his authority to go to war without Congressional authority on the 2001 and 2003 resolutions against al-Qaeda.  The 2001 resolution mentioned "war" four times and the 2003 mentioned it nine times.

This was followed by the British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond telling reporters at a news conference in Berlin: Let me be clear; Britain will not be taking part in any air strikes in Syria."  He said London won't be "revisiting" the issue after Parliament decided last year against participating in air strikes.  Number 10 Downing Street then had to walk that back by saying that P.M. David Cameron had not yet decided on air strikes.  (However after the Saturday release of a You Tube video of the decapitation of British aid worker, David Cawthorne Haines,  that could change dramatically.)

It all went down hill after that with Germany stating that they were not yet in the coalition followed by Turkey and then Saudi Arabia announcing that their contribution would be only the training of the Syrian Free Army on Saudi territory.

Friday it got worse with the CIA in a surprise release stating that ISIS had grown by as much as 300% since June and now numbered between 20,000 and 31,500 fighters in the terror army.  This would make ISIS the 76th largest army out of 106 forces in the world.  It should be remembered that when they took Fallujah in the beginning of 2014 they were estimated to be around 4000 strong.

ROTHERHAM

From 1997 through 2013 and beyond, over 1,400 young. white, working class girls were systematically and sexually preyed upon by gangs of older men in the northern English town of Rotherham.  The girls involved were often troubled, living in group or foster homes, often living chaotic and dysfunctional lives which made them easy marks for their predators.
Despite numerous individual reports and three official reports in 2002, 2003 and 2006, nothing significant was done by local elected and appointed officials or the local Police.  This was mainly due to the fact that the gangs of men responsible were Muslims of Pakistani, Bangladeshi or Afghani origin.  Local officials,the majority of whom are from the Labour Party, repeatedly tried to avoid either racial confrontations or being labled racist or anti-Muslim.
In 2013 The Times of London did a series of investigatory articles about Rotherham which exposed the scandal.  This prompted the Rotherham Council to commission an independent report by Professor Alexis Jay who was formerly the Chief Inspector of Social Work in Scotland.  That report which was issued in August of this year has exploded like a bomb and has exposed the "Politically Correct" and "Multicultural" bias that allowed serial crimes of a horrific nature to be inflicted on young girls.

AMERICAN CREEPSHOW

The "Obama Zombies" as author Jason Matera labeled them in his book of the same name, are at it again.  CBS has reported that Gov. Jerry Brown has signed Assembly Bill 1912 which directs California educators to include " the significance  of the United States electing its first African-American President" in its History and Social Science curricula.   Obama's past vocation as a "community organizer" is also to be highlighted.
Well, every curriculum needs a reading list and here are mine:  "Culture of Corruption" by Michelle Malkin; "The Amateur" by Edward Klein; "Faithless Execution" by Andrew McCarthy; "Pushback" by Rabbi Aryeh Spero; "The Roots of Obama's Rage" and "Obama's America" by Dinesh D'Souza; "Obama's Enforcer" by John Fund and Hans Von Spakowsky; "InJustice" by J. Christian Adams; "The Devil Inside the Beltway" by Michael J. Daugherty; "Liberty and Tyranny" and "Ameritopia" by Mark Levin; "After America" by Mark Steyn; "The Great Destroyer" by David Limbaugh and "Spreading the Wealth" by Stanley Kurtz.
These are but a small sample  of "Obamography", mostly critical, written with over two more years left to go in his second term.
He began his first term with young grade school  children singing North Korean type hymns to him under the guidance, of course, of union teachers.  So in six years, the "cultists" have simply taken steps to insure that grades K-12 are worshiping the worst and creepiest President in American history. 
After he leaves office (and there are those who believe that he will not leave without a fight) his successors will have the "Devil's own time"  to fix and repair all the terrible things he has done.  It remains to be seen if the Constitution and our system of government have been irreparably harmed by his acts.

The TPMS reaction to ISIS


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.

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.
