Some Still Refuse to Face Stark Reality

An historian who's name slips my mind at the moment once said " History always repeats it's self.  Each time it does, the price goes up." And as Aristotle's Law of Identity plainly states, A is A, a thing is what it is.

In 1979 the Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran declared islamic war against the West, primarily the United States and Israel. Since then muslims of all stripes have been acting out on that declaration of war. Unfortunately, America and the West have not consistently met the challenge and have emboldened the muslim Jihadists through years of inadequate challenges to the islamic onslaught.

Muslims have correctly recognized the irrational progressive western tendency of political correct appeasement at all costs, and are taking full advantage of it. It used to be that if one nation or group of nations declared war upon another and followed through on that threat, there would be a strong response from the threatened nation with an effort to defeat that enemy. Of course, there were exceptions to that rule. One was Great Britain during the earlier part of the second world war. The British Empire paid the price for taking it’s sweet time to engage the threat.

Similarly, today we regularly witness the atrocities being waged against civilization by barbaric muslim brutes, just as the islamists have been doing for 1,400 years. In the koran, muslims are instructed to either convert or kill non-muslims. This is what they teach their children. They are also persuaded to invade other nations and if possible use their legal systems and freedoms against them. 
It is both sad and immoral when elected government officials who either swear or affirm to uphold the United States Constitution and are expected to govern on behalf of U.S. interests but do not. Barack Obama is the premier example of refusing to do what is best for our nation’s best interests. Instead of exhibiting strength and resolve after a cowardly muslim terrorist wreaked havoc in a gun free zone by gunning down scores of unarmed victims, he chose to blame guns instead of muslim terrorists, who should be hunted down and destroyed.  What an insult to the American victims of dedicated muslim terrorists who are trying to bomb the world into a dark age of muslim domination.

Thus it is high time for civilized nations accommodate them by militarily escorting them to their eternal reward. Right on the heels of Islamic terrorism in Orlando, Florida, once again Paris was hit with another dose of Muslim Jihadist terrorists who simply went to Paris to kill and destroy.

On Monday Obama gave a very telling speech. It conveyed to all objective listeners his true feelings about the nation that twice elected him to the presidency. He was blatantly defiant in his decision to “not now and not ever,” place blame on radical islam participants for the tragedy in Orlando.  Instead, he chooses to threaten our freedoms.

America is a nation at war whether some recognize it or not. We must take the muslim challenge to our existence as one nation. If not, history will not be kind.

"Smoking Ruins And Crying Widows"

It's Time to Rid the World of ISIS

Once again ISIS has proved their demonic barbarianism by burning alive a Jordanian Pilot. How much more will the civilized world  take? 

On January 9th, Lt Col Ralph Peters presented the only answer to the problem that is based in reality. He said: "in a war you fight to win, you don’t worry about political correctness. The jihadis will do anything to win, and we’re worried about our table manners.” Some points he made:

1. First, accept that you are in a war.
2. Name the enemy: Islamist Terrorists 
3. Get the lawyers and the policymakers off the battlefield 
4. You go where the terrorists are and you kill them.
5. You don't send American troops into a war you don't intend to win. 
6. Be as merciless as the enemy. If you're not willing to do that, he will win.
In 2012 President Obama said "the future must not belong to those who insult the prophet of Islam."  Like it or not, until something changes, he has the power to define that future.  As always, his priorities have more to do with the accommodation and appeasement of those who are causing the problem, and less to do with America's interests. Policy is being made by him, and by people who think like him. They want us to accept this kind of thinking. It explains, among other things, why we are leaving Afghanistan with no resolution, at the cost of 2,144 American lives, 73% of which occured since Obama took office.

The future has arrived, and the question is whether we will remain free men or whether we will be on our knees at the mercy of a global caliphate.  Apparently the latter is an acceptable choice to leftists, just so long as we are nice to each other.  People who think like this don't deserve to live in a free society. If we allow it to continue, none of us will.
The left has fallen prey to their own deception. Political Correctness is a weapon devised to silence opposition to their utopian ideas, but their cowardice in the face of Islamic terrorism has brought them to apply it to their own thinking.  It offers them a way to rationalize their willingness to get on their knees in the face of the very thing that will put an end to their right to have any ideas about anything, utopian or not, if it does not conform to the ideology of Islam.  The absurdity of this appears to be lost on the left, but it is not lost on the people who have declared war on us. "Peace at any cost" is a suicidal mirage.  In the face of an aggressive enemy, it guarantees an opposite reaction.

The left has learned nothing from history. The appeasement by Neville Chamberlain, and the complicity of Vichy France allowed the Nazis to expand into Western Europe. It took the Normandy invasion, led by the United States Military under General Eisenhower, with the full support of the American People to push them back into Germany. Islamist terrorism poses no less a threat to the Western world, but we find ourselves compromised by the leftists in America today.

Prepared for the Worst

"All the bad actors in the world know they have two-and-a-half years to run rampant since the U.S. won’t do anything. Expect war."— Jon Gabriel,  March 14, 2014
"At the time some thought it alarmist, but it isn’t surprising how the past half year has worked out:
* Putin’s slow-motion invasion of Ukraine.
* Boko Haram rampaging through Nigeria, kidnapping children and sacking churches.
* China aggressively staking out territorial claims in the Pacific.
* North Korean threats and missile tests.
* Libya’s collapse into an anarchic terror state.
* All-out war between Israel and Hamas.
* Violent anti-semitism across Europe.
* Russia testing NATO’s air defenses.
* Central American crime syndicates pouring across our southern border
* ISIS crucifying its way across Syria and Iraq.
Over the past three days alone, we’ve seen sweeping anti-government riots in Pakistan, Beijing invalidating Hong Kong democracy, ISIS beheading a second American journalist, and now 11 commercial airliners are missing from Libya.

President Obama has created an international power vacuum, a natural result of his lead-from-behind style and desire for an unexceptional America. Would-be strongmen are eagerly filling that vacuum, understanding that the world’s policeman has decided to go on a years-long, union-funded strike.

As the leader of the free world shuffles from one golf course to the next, it’s obvious that no major foreign policy change is coming in the near term......

Texas Rep.Stockman Files Charges Ordering Arrest of Lois Lerner

Congressman Steve Stockman Thursday filed a resolution directing the House Sergeant-At-Arms to arrest former IRS Director of the Exempt Organizations Unit Lois Lerner on charges of contempt of Congress.

“Asking the Justice Department to prosecute Lois Lerner for admittedly illegal activity is a joke. The Obama administration will not prosecute the Obama administration. How much longer will the House allow itself to be mocked? It is up to this House to uphold the rule of law and hold accountable those who illegally targeted American citizens for simply having different ideas than the President,” said Stockman. Under the resolution Lerner would be held in the D.C. jail and would have full legal rights and access to an attorney.

“It’s time to for House to stop tacitly endorsing this administration’s illegal activity by refusing to hold him accountable. I expect Democrats to defend and even praise criminal activity. The question is whether Republican leadership will join them in mocking the House and breaking the law,” said Stockman.

Contempt of Congress is a criminal offense (Act of January 24, 1857, Ch. 19, sec. 1, 11 Stat. 155.) Congress’ power to hold someone in contempt has been recognized by the United States Supreme Court four times.

Democrats admit the House has the power to arrest those in contempt of Congress. “I could have arrested Karl Rove on any given day,” former House Speaker and current House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi told The Huffington Post just days ago, on June 20. “I’m not kidding. There’s a prison here in the Capitol. If we had spotted him in the Capitol, we could have arrested him.”

CNN has also recognized Congress’ power to arrest those in contempt of Congress, going so far in 2008 as to televise potential locations where Rove would be held.

The New York Times also recognizes the House’s power to arrest.

“From the Republic’s earliest days, Congress has had the right to hold recalcitrant witnesses in contempt — and even imprison them — all by itself. In 1795, shortly after the Constitution was ratified, the House ordered its sergeant at arms to arrest and detain two men accused of trying to bribe members of Congress. The House held a trial and convicted one of them,” the Times wrote in a Dec. 4, 2007 editorial.
“In 1821, the Supreme Court upheld Congress’s right to hold people in contempt and imprison them. Without this power, the court ruled, Congress would “be exposed to every indignity and interruption, that rudeness, caprice, or even conspiracy, may mediate against it.” Later, in a 1927 case arising from the Teapot Dome scandal, the court upheld the Senate’s arrest of the brother of a former attorney general — carried out in Ohio by the deputy sergeant at arms — for ignoring a subpoena to testify."

Are We Strangers in Our Own Land?

BreitbartAs we near the 238th anniversary of U.S. independence, many Americans are wondering if we are indeed an independent nation with sovereign borders, given that tens of thousands of unaccompanied children are streaming across the southern border. Have we become strangers in our own land?

On Tuesday, two very disturbing stories concerning our border crisis surfaced in the news. These stories should put goose bumps on all Americans. Fox News’ Todd Starnes broke the news Tuesday that a private security force contracted by the government had threatened doctors working at a refugee camp to keep them from disclosing information about the rampant illness among the illegal immigrants. Starnes reported:
"There were several of us who wanted to talk about the camps, but the agents made it clear we would be arrested,” a counselor told Starnes. “We were under orders not to say anything.” 
The sources said workers were guarded by a security force  which the Department of Health and Human Services hired to run the Lackland Camp. The sources say security forces called themselves the “Brown Shirts.”
“It was a very submissive atmosphere,” the counselor said. “Once you stepped onto the grounds, you abided by their laws – the Brown Shirt laws.”
She said the workers were stripped of their cellphones and other communication devices. Anyone caught with a phone was immediately fired.

It’s high time for "We the People" to take back our government and our sovereignty from a small group of elites in Washington. It is these elites and their unconstitutional ideas that should feel foreign in this great land, not law-abiding Americans. What better way to celebrate Independence Day?

The Reinvigorated Thought Police

In the space of just a few weeks, the quality of American freedom has been cheapened and its future made uncertain by a renewed assault of left-wingers bent on having their own way and running roughshod over all other opinions in the process.  
This intolerance is political. It is issue-driven. It is meant to ensure a leftist agenda prevails despite legality, logic or popular support. They often exaggerate their claims of support by quoting phony polls and statistics said to reinforce their views. 

Despite liberal declarations in 2008 that America was entering a “post-racial” era, the race card seems to be played more than every. Free speech through political contributions (from conservatives, at least) is under fire even though the U.S. Supreme Court, for one, continues to invalidate onerous campaign finance restrictions.  
Americans who have spoken out on the issues of traditional marriage have found themselves attacked, protested and forced out of public and private positions they have earned on merit because they dare to hold views counter to the mob.

These leftist have sought to imprint their opinions on America through the media, public institutions and schools. Anyone who is found to hold beliefs counter to theirs are smeared as racist, traditionalist, sexist or homophobic because what this evil minority has not yet been able to do is stop the exchange of ideas that Americans have come to appreciate and is still guaranteed by our Constitution.

How Do They Now Hide Their Embarrassment?

The Masters attained self awareness in the first years of the 21st century.  Decades of the efforts of the ones who had gone before had borne fruit, and the transformation had begun.  As planned, the plague that was Political Correctness had run amok in the land, and they had decided that sufficient numbers of the people were willing to abandon their heritage of Freedom, yielding to the plans of those who now had seized power.  Clamoring for gifts of entitlements from the Nation's treasure, they had shown their willingness to subordinate themselves to the government's rule. For years the Masters had sought someone who could serve as their figurehead, a man of undisclosed origins who would do their bidding.  They had found such a man, vacant, without principle, someone detached from, and hostile to, the institutions that had sustained the Nation since it's founding.

The people, turning a blind eye to reality, had proven they were now ready to elect such a man, and this final act of self deception was proof to the Masters that the time had come.

In the year 2008 they succeeded in their attempts to place their lackey in the seat of the Nation's highest office, and thus began the final stages of their assault on the Constitutional Republic which stood in the way of their ultimate goal. A huge bureaucratic force had been built up over the years, and their vast array of regulations had become confused with the force of laws.  These interconnected bureaucracies, all financed with the people's money, would now be greatly enlarged, accountable to the Masters lackey. And by his enablers, the people would be told "it is good." 

"He had a free hand to make a mess because they gave it to him. They cheered him on, supporting him with unprecedented gobs of money and near-unanimous votes. They said “aye” to any cockamamie concept he came up with, echoed his demonization of critics and helped steamroll unpopular and unworkable ideas into reality. Some of his backers knew better, and said so privately, but publicly they were all in.
A king is no king without a court, and he has not lacked for lackeys. The system of checks and balances is written into the Constitution, but it is the everyday behavior of Americans of good will that makes the system work.
That he is now the imperial president he used to bemoan is no longer in dispute. The milking of perks, from golf trips to Florida to European vacations for the first lady, is shockingly vulgar, but not a peep of protest comes from his supporters.
The IRS becomes a political enforcer, but that, too, is accepted because nobody will risk their access by telling him no. You are either with him or you are his enemy.
The evidence is everywhere that his ideas are flawed, that his view of economics, diplomacy, the military, history, science and religion are warped by his own narcissism. He doesn’t even talk a good game anymore.
It is equally clear that those who shielded him from facts and their own best judgment did him no favors. Out of fear and favor, they abdicated their duty to the nation, and they must share the burden of history’s verdict. After all, America’s decline happened on their watch, too."

One More Reason to Look Toward 2014 & 2016

With one-third of the Supreme Court with one foot in the grave, and the long term results of Affirmative Action now running the country, the next two elections are as important to this country as ever.
"It ought to be possible, in short, for every American to enjoy the privileges of being American without regard to his race or his color… 
As I have said before, not every child has an equal talent or an equal ability or an equal motivation, but they should have the equal right to develop their talent and their ability and their motivation, to make something of themselves. - John Marshall Harlan, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court 1963
You need only read a summation of Justice Sotomayor’s 58-page dissent, (starts on pg.51) where she piles one bad and misleading argument on another, to understand that liberalism is now in a position of insisting that subverting equal protection of the law is actually upholding it.

New Administration Links in the IRS Tea Party Scandal

The Train Keeps a Rollin'...........
"Congressional investigators this week released emails suggesting that staff at the Federal Election Commission have been engaged in their own conservative targeting, with help from the IRS's infamous Lois Lerner. This means more than just an expansion of the probe to the FEC. It's a new link to the Obama team...."
"This matters because FEC staff didn't have permission from the Commission to conduct this inquiry. It matters because the IRS is prohibited from sharing confidential information, even with the FEC. What the IRS divulged is unclear. Congressional investigators are demanding to see all communications between the IRS and FEC since 2008, and given that Ms. Lerner came out of the FEC's office of the general counsel, that correspondence could prove illuminating." — Kimberly A. Strassel, The Wall Street Journal

Another Beheading in England

by Dale Hurd of CBN News

Lancashire, England - A 20-year-old British man has been arraigned in the murder and decapitation June 4th of an 18-year old Sheffield, England woman named Reema Ramazan.

Haven't heard of it? Up until a few days ago,
Ramzan was "just" a stabbing fatality. Now we learn that Aras Hussein cut off her head. It was the second beheading involving a British Muslim in a little over two weeks, after the murder and decapitation of British soldier Lee Rigby, May 22.

This apparent cover up is an example of what has been a massive, orchestrated disinformation campaign by British authorities and their allies in the media to blackout or minimize, and in many cases refuse to prosecute, Muslim crimes. I've come to northern England to investigate how authorities covered up the
Muslim sex grooming gang epidemic, in which white British girls are made the sex slaves of what the authorities euphemistically call "Asian" gangs (they're Muslim). Astonishingly, police are still not tackling the problem head-on, and still more girls will have their lives ruined because of it.

The media is also
failing to report the depth and breadth of the public fury here over the Rigby murder. If those demonstrations were about some loony left-wing cause, you'd see them splashed across every TV screen.

Some argue that the British police are in chains to their politically correct bosses in government. No doubt. I think they also fear civil war. But trying to cover up an Islamic crime wave and the anger that is now seething among the native English doesn't prevent civil war; it brings it. Just sayin'.


The Brits are scared shitless over their muslim invaders, and are just hastening the day their necks are bent for the sword. - DS

Mr. Jefferson Visits The White House

Political Clown Parade

"I understand, my dear sir, that you recently gave a very confused speech to university students upon their graduation.
You seemed quite fretful at the time. Perhaps it was because you felt the winds of change rustling against your brow. You lamented, nay, chillingly suggested to these impressionable young men and women that they had grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that you felt was at the root of all the problems of this great republic.
You sir, went on to say that those same voices would warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner.
I thought I should pay you a visit in an attempt to school you on the subject of tyranny; something about which, I am intimately familiar......"  READ THE REST

Mr. Orwell, Please Pick Up The White Courtesy Phone...

Matthew's Weekend Commentary
The handsome devil to the left is one Eric Arthur Blair, better known to the world as George Orwell.

Mr. Orwell was the author of some of the greatest anti-authoritarian novels of all time. Books like 1984 and Animal Farm will stand the test of time as classics, and he was also an accomplished essayist, book reviewer, and journalist. Orwell, despite the fact that he was a Socialist, is one of my heroes.

As if that were a secret? I only bust out an Orwell reference about every thirty seconds, sometimes.

He’s a hero to me because, unlike most writers of his day -- a good many of whom are given the honorific of ‘great’ for little to no reason beyond that they appeal to pansy academics -- he dared to speak the truth, plainly and as he saw it. He did not apologize for his political positions, but did do his best to convince you of their veracity and utility with a command of the language that has been matched by very few. Compared to Orwell, in terms of the use of the English language, Shakespeare was a drooling idiot.

I was reminded of George, again, as soon as the scale of recent Obama Administration Scandals (hereafter OAS, for brevity's sake) was made public. Or rather, I should say, that at least what anyone is wiling to tell us with regards to OAS, because I don't believe we'll be getting anything close to a full reckoning on any of it until Barack Obama is safely enjoying a lavish retirement paid for with stolen money in France, with the rest of the deposed African tin-pot dictators.

Anyways, the whole sordid mess spawned this particular headline which is both hysterically funny, and all-too-sad:

Sales of 1984 rise 6,000% overnight after news of NSA Scandal Breaks.

For the benefit of those of you who went to public school, or who grew up waiting for books to become movies, I'll explain why that is a such a shocking headline.......

Get a Grip Europe. I Doubt We Will Shed Blood for You Again

I was--big mistake--reading CNN and BBC reporting on the Religion of Peace's activities in London and Stockholm when I saw that the benefits of Islam's Peaceful Activities also have made themselves manifest in Paris, where a French soldier has been stabbed. I love the cautious, oh so very delicate reporting by BBC on this latest demonstration of Love of Peace,
President Hollande also responded cautiously while on a visit to Ethiopia, telling reporters: "I do not think at this point that there may be a link" [with the London attack]
French reports said police were hunting a bearded man of North African origin about 30 years of age. He was wearing a light-coloured robe called a djellaba.
 "We still don't know the exact circumstances of the attack or the identity of the attacker, but we are exploring all options.
Oh yes, that description is undoubtedly of a Mormon missionary, or perhaps a Hasidic Jew or a slightly disheveled Amish tourist?
I also adore the breathless reporting (here and here, for example) re the alarming "rise" in anti-Muslim "attacks." Note the source for the reports and take a grain of salt, a spoonful would be better, then let me know how many Muslims have been beheaded on the streets of London in the middle of day. How about zero for a number? How many Muslim immigrants in the UK are packing up, turning in their assistance cards, and moving back to Nigeria, Pakistan, Morocco, Bangladesh, etc? I'll bet that zero number remains a pretty accurate estimate for that, too.
 I enjoy reading the comments from readers around the world on the BBC and CNN stories. There, and elsewhere, we see another number, a rather tired one: the "statistic" that "99% of Muslims" are not terrorists. Is that true? I don't know. From where does that number come? I don't know. Let's, however, go along with the gag. Let's assume it is accurate, and come up with our own equally valid "99%" statistics. Some samples follow; I am sure you can turn this into a drinking game--but not around Muslims because drinking offends them (unless they are Saudi diplomats in Islamabad).
 Did you know that,
-- 99% of the Japanese did not attack Pearl Harbor?
-- 99% of the Nazis did not kill Jews or Gypsies, or invade Poland?
-- 99% of the Communists did not engage in Stalin's or Mao's purges?
-- 99% of the Germans killed in Dresden had never bombed England?
-- 99% of the Italians did not invade Ethiopia?
-- 99% of the Iranians did not occupy the US embassy in Teheran?
 -- 99% of the Al Qaeda membership did not fly airplanes into the World Trade Center or the Pentagon?
 And so on, and on, and so what? What does that "99%" prove? Just one thing: There are consequences in the real world to belonging to organizations or following ideologies and leaders that commit atrocities. That's the way it works. If 99% of Muslims are not terrorists, and do not support terrorism (that's the big "if") where are they? Why can't they control the crazies and murderers and rioters in their midst? If they can't they will find that they might just pay the price, even if they did not pull the trigger, or drop the cyanide gas. The Germans and the Japanese discovered that during World War II.
We see Britain's foolish PM Cameron making the typical foolish Western politician statement after the murder of the young British soldier (and let's not forget he is just following in the path of nonsense about Islam blazed by our own President Bush),
"This was not just an attack on Britain and on the British way of life, it was also a betrayal of Islam and of the Muslim communities who give so much to our country. There is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act."
No, Mr. Prime Minister. Everything in Islam justifies this truly dreadful act and so many more. That is why the "99%" cannot condemn, isolate, or punish the murderers. That violence, that "extremism" is Islam; that is the real item. We need to deal with that hard and unpleasant fact. Islam has not gone through an enlightenment, and what "reformation" has taken place has moved it backwards, ever deeper into the thinking prevalent in the dark ages and places from whence it came.

No Ordinary Scandal

Peggy Noonan’s article about the IRS scandal is her best writing in some time. She nails it when she talks about how the IRS became a political instrument in the Obama administration’s hands:
"The Journal’s Kim Strassel reported an Idaho businessman named Frank VanderSloot, who’d donated more than a million dollars to groups supporting Mitt Romney. He found himself last June, for the first time in 30 years, the target of IRS auditors. His wife and his business were also soon audited. Hal Scherz, a Georgia physician, also came to the government’s attention. He told ABC News: “It is odd that nothing changed on my tax return and I was never audited until I publicly criticized ObamaCare.” Franklin Graham, son of Billy, told Politico he believes his father was targeted. A conservative Catholic academic who has written for these pages faced questions about her meager freelance writing income. Many of these stories will come out, but not as many as there are. People are not only afraid of being audited, they’re afraid of saying they were audited.
All of these IRS actions took place in the years leading up to the 2012 election. They constitute the use of governmental power to intrude on the privacy and shackle the political freedom of American citizens. The purpose, obviously, was to overwhelm and intimidate—to kill the opposition, question by question and audit by audit.
It is not even remotely possible that all this was an accident, a mistake. Again, only conservative groups were targeted, not liberal. It is not even remotely possible that only one IRS office was involved. Lois Lerner, who oversees tax-exempt groups for the IRS, was the person who finally acknowledged, under pressure of a looming investigative report, some of what the IRS was doing. She told reporters the actions were the work of “frontline people” in Cincinnati. But other offices were involved, including Washington. It is not even remotely possible the actions were the work of just a few agents. This was more systemic. It was an operation. The word was out: Get the Democratic Party’s foes. It is not remotely possible nobody in the IRS knew what was going on until very recently. The Washington Post reported efforts to target the conservative groups reached the highest levels of the agency by May 2012—far earlier than the agency had acknowledged. Reuters reported high-level IRS officials, including its chief counsel, knew in August 2011 about the targeting."
President Obama’s high-profile ‘announcement’ that Jack Lew had asked for and accepted the resignation for the acting IRS commissioner was insulting. He’s leaving in 2 weeks anyway.
There’s too many instances of the IRS going after Republicans to ignore. There have been too many times where Republicans were targeted by multiple offices of the IRS to think this is the work of 2 rogue agents in Cincinnati.  Michele Bachmann’s gave a good explanation of how the IRS bureaucracy works. She said it was apparent a week ago that the official White House statement was fiction. 
 "The president speaks in the passive voice. He attempts to act out indignation, but he always seems indignant at only one thing: that he’s being questioned at all. That he has to address this. That fate put it on his plate. "
This fits his pattern. When Jeremiah Wright first became news, Sen. Obama said that he couldn’t criticize his rants. Then Wright criticized Obama. Wright got shoved under the proverbial bus in a New York minute.

That’s the pattern. After 5 years of watching the Tyrant From Chicago, we shouldn't be surprised that he’d use the IRS as a weapon against his political enemies.

I Ask You My Democrat Friends.....How Does It Feel?

I too was once a Democrat. Educated and indoctrinated with your ideals and ways of thinking. I too believed to a certain extent, the ends justified the means.

Some of life's discoveries are exciting, joyful, and exhilarating, while others can be quite painful. Stumbling upon the fact that you do not necessarily have a competent grasp of reality, that you have in fact been duped, is not a pleasant experience. While it may be a living nightmare to realize that part of one’s life was, perhaps, wasted on the false ideas of others. Time wasted in an intellectual fog of propaganda.

So,my progressive friends, now I ask you.....How does it feel to see your so-called “anti-war” party become the most accommodating cheerleader of laser guided death and domination in the Middle East, with predator drones operating in the sovereign skies of multiple countries raining missiles upon civilians and “enemy combatants”, all at the behest of Barack Obama. How does it feel  to see the “party of civil liberties” expand on every Constitution crushing policy while levying some of the most draconian legislation ever witnessed in the history of this country. How does it feel  to see  Obama endorse enemy combatant status for American citizens, and the end of due process under the law through the NDAA. How does it feel to see him endorse secret assassination lists, and the federally drafted murder of U.S. civilians. How does it feel  to see him endorse executive orders which open the path to the declaration of a “national emergency” at any time for any reason allowing for the dissolution of most constitutional rights and the unleashing of martial law.

If I was still a Democrat today I would be sickly ashamed. Yet, I hear many average Democrats actually defend this behavior from their party. The same behavior they once railed against under George Bush.

The biggest difference between progressives and conservatives is that progressives consistently look to government to solve all the troubles of the world, when government is usually the CAUSE of all the troubles in the world. The most common Democratic argument is that in America the government “is what we make it”, and we can change it anytime we like through the election process. Maybe this was true at one time, but not anymore. Just look at Barack Obama. I would ask all those on the Left to take an honest look at the policies of Obama. Where is the end to domestic spy programs? Where is the end to incessant and dictatorial executive orders?

You cannot claim to be anti-war, anti-torture, anti-assassination, anti-surveillance, anti-corporate, anti-bank, anti-rendition, etc. while defending the policies of Obama at the same time. This is hypocrisy.

And now,  in the name of tragedy,  you feel the need to strike even deeper into the document that contains our rights (in your case also perceived rights) and protections against tyranny.

People of my political stripe want a system that respects justice and legitimate law instead of using the law and executive orders as a sword against the public. To wake up each day with solace in the knowledge that while life in many regards will always be a difficult thing, we still have the means to make it better for ourselves and for the next generation. To wake up knowing that those inner elements of the human heart which make us most unique and most endearing are no longer considered “aberrant”, and are no longer under threat.

So I does it feel?

George Soros Knows About Gun Control Firsthand

Scotty Starnes
"The Center for American Progress is a George Soros funded group of radicals that have been setting Obama’s presidential policies from day one. Soros was a Hillary supporter and funneled untold millions into CAP. Once Hillary lost to Obama, Soros the felon, and his group embraced Obama and Obama has embraced them. They helped push for the ObamaCare bill and a host of other radical bills for Obama. John Podesta, who runs CAP, was the leader of Obama’s transitional team.
The Desk of George Soros
Now the anti-American, anti-2nd Amendment extremist have Obama’s ear and are pushing their anti-gun ideas.
From WaPo:
"With President Obama readying an overhaul of the nation’s gun laws, a liberal think tank with singular influence throughout his administration is pushing for a sweeping agenda of strict new restrictions on and federal oversight of gun and ammunition sales.
The Center for American Progress is recommending 13 new gun policies to the White House — some of them executive actions that would not require the approval of Congress — in what amounts to the progressive community’s wish list."
 So, a left-wing news rag is admitting that Obama is listening to, and taking recommendations, from a radical group of non-elected officials.
"CAP is urging the Obama administration to back Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s proposal to ban assault weapons. The California Democrat wants to prohibit the sale, transfer, importation and manufacture of military-style assault weapons and ammunition magazines that carry more than 10 bullets." 

Not so strange when you realize George Soros has a rich personal history of involvement with gun grabbers.

The Tyranny of Anecdotes

Taki's Magazine
Remember the good old days when you’d only have one tyrant per country and they’d usually kill a few thousand people? Today anyone can be tyrannical and use their shrill screams to kill millions of conversations.
In The Tyranny of Clichés, Jonah Goldberg talks about how clichés such as “Violence never solves anything” trump logic and end debates despite the evidence saying the opposite. (He says violence liberated America from the English and also ended slavery.) The perpetually misunderstood Sam Francis has a similar take but calls it “anarcho-tyranny” and describes it as
a combination of anarchy (in which legitimate government functions—like spying on the bad guys or punishing real criminals—are not performed) and tyranny (in which government performs illegitimate functions—like spying on the good guys or criminalizing innocent conduct like gun ownership and political dissent).
There’s a third kind of tyranny with which the seemingly oppressed like to oppress us: anecdotal evidence. Where freak occurrences and exceptions used to be treated for the aberrations that they are, they now define policies and dominate discourse. Right now, Putin is using one dead orphan to justify a total adoption ban on American parents because his ego is hurt. To be against him is to want orphans to die.
Safety culture uses this tactic often. Thirty-four children in Ohio died in car accidents! Are you OK with that? Are you OK with a classroom blowing up? To be against booster seats for 7-year-olds is to laugh at the atrocities in Sandy Hook. No wonder Ralph Nader has a career. If you don’t pay his extortion fees, you’re killing kids. When you have the emotions behind “common sense” on your side, counterintuitive truth is doomed.
In a culture where a Liberal Arts degree is considered education and “Making mathematics mandatory prevents us from discovering and developing young talent,” replacing data with propaganda is easy.
 Here are 10 totally random occurrences that tyrants pretend aren’t random at all:
