AS DISGRACED CIA DIRECTOR and former commanding officer of the entire US Afghanistan nation-building boondoggle, DAVID PETREAUS, was scheduled to testify on the Benghazi crisis next week, the vultures have begun circling. Now it appears he’s bowed out of the picture, and will not testify although there is nothing preventing him from doing so. Director Petraeus resigned Friday after admitting marital infidelity. There is surely much more to this resignation saga than this decorated military man making bouncy boo boo with his fawning sexy young autobiographer.
Some vain religious actor in Florida is not the threat. The American policy of trusting Islamic players has always presented a clear and present danger to American lives, and thus these men of valor must always be cautious.
Petreaus lost this writer's respect when he complained that the Florida pastor Terry Jones was endangering American lives with his threats to burn a Qu'ran. That whine was petty and unbecoming of an American officer, particularly the top soldier in charge. Soldiers in Afghanistan live in a state of fear. By definition their lives are alwas at risk, and in severe danger. Natives who have been befriended, paid handsomely, turn on these soldiers with deadly force whenever the chance presents itself. Sure. They can honestly mimic greedy or needy humans first, but they are Islamic tribalists second, and that's all there is. Islam speaks to their core. Kafirs with their strange ways do not, except when it is to their immediate advantage. Some vain religious actor in Florida is not the threat. The American policy of trusting Islamic players has always presented a clear and present danger to American lives, and thus these men of valor must always be cautious. Grow up, I said of the General when I heard that ridiculous remark of his. Now it seems the great man has more than cowardly emotions, but stirs beneath the uniform as well.
The whole lot of simmering Obama scandals must see the light of day as they come to a boil. Fast and Furious. Benghazi. Oh, despair! This radical administration must be forced to fall upon its own sword, if America stands any chance of survival. But that presumes the Republican House finally grows a pair, and fights tooth and nail for the US Constitution and the rule of law...
On May 2, 2011, official history contends SEAL Team 6 infiltrated a terrorist compound in Pakistan and killed Al-Queda leader Osama bin Laden. Okay. So good, so far.
All across this divided nation, Americans cheered the news that one of the world's largest mass murderers had been brought to justice. Unfortunately, there's a tragedy in this story, as there seems to be with most of Obama's plotlinesand it's being ignored by Congress. In the weeks leading up to bin Laden's death, Pakistani Doctor Shakil Afridi risked his life to provide us with the information that directly helped SEAL Team 6 find and kill Osama bin Laden.
Dr. Afridi should be rewardedor at the very leastcongratulated for his efforts. But he's been imprisoned, brutally tortured and charged with treason by Pakistan's Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI). It's an outrage that Pakistan is holding Dr. Afridi for the crime of helping America.
And it's an outrage the United States continues to send over $2 BILLION in taxpayer money to Pakistan each year. We must get this jizya stopped
To hear that AG Eric Holder might be on his way out is good news, if only a rumor at this stage of the big shuffle apparently under way. Out with the bad journalism of the leftist media and in with the sunshine and the light...
Tar and feather the scoundrels, liars of a feather!
I decided to write this essay after a comment from a journalist, not a Leftist by my country's standards, who dismissed Eurabia as merely a conspiracy theory, one on a par with The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. I do not disagree with the fact that conspiracy theories exist, nor that they can be dangerous. After all, the Protocols and the Dolchstosslegende, or "stab in the back myth"the idea that Germany didn't lose WW1 but was betrayed by Socialists, intellectuals and Jewshelped pave the way for Adolf Hitler and the Nazis before WW2.
However, what puzzles me is that it is a widely-held belief of many (not just in the Islamic world but in Europe and even in the United States) that the terror attacks that brought down the Twin Towers in New York City on September 11, 2001 were really a controlled demolition staged by the American government and then blamed on Muslims. I have seen this thesis talked about many times in Western media. While it is frequently (though not always) dismissed and mocked, it is least mentioned.
In contrast, Eurabiawhich asserts that the Islamicization of Europe didn't happen merely by accident but with the active participation of European political leadersis hardly ever referred to at all, despite the fact that it is easier to document. Does the notion of Eurabia hit too close to home? Perhaps it doesn't fit with the anti-American disposition of many journalists? Curiously enough, even those left-leaning journalists who are otherwise critical of the European Union because of its free market elements never write about Eurabia.
...explained how French President Charles de Gaulle, disappointed by the loss of the French colonies in Africa and the Middle East as well as with France’s waning influence in the international arena, decided in the 1960′s to create a strategic alliance with the Arab and Muslim world to compete with the dominance of the United States and the Soviet Union.
Because of this, I am going to test whether the Eurabia thesis is correct, or at least plausible. I have called this project The Eurabia Code, alluding to author Dan Brown's massive bestseller The Da Vinci Code. Brown's fictional account "documents" a conspiracy by the Church to cover up the truth about Jesus. I'm not sure my work will become equally popular, but I'm pretty sure it's closer to reality.
The next time Mr. Brown wants to write about massive conspiracies in Europe, he would be well-advised to set his eyes at Brussels rather than Rome. It would be a whole lot more interesting. What follows is a brief outline of the thesis put forward by writer Bat Ye'or in her book "Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis." My information is based on her book (which should be read in full). In addition I have drawn from some of her articles and interviews. I republish the information with her blessing, but this summary is completely my own.
In an interview with Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Bat Ye'or explained how French President Charles de Gaulle, disappointed by the loss of the French colonies in Africa and the Middle East as well as with France's waning influence in the international arena, decided in the 1960's to create a strategic alliance with the Arab and Muslim world to compete with the dominance of the United States and the Soviet Union.
"This is a matter of a total transformation of Europe, which is the result of an intentional policy," said Bat Ye'or. "We are now heading towards a total change in Europe, which will be more and more Islamicized and will become a political satellite of the Arab and Muslim world. The European leaders have decided on an alliance with the Arab world, through which they have committed to accept the Arab and Muslim approach toward the United States and Israel. This is not only with respect to foreign policy, but also on issues engaging European society from within, such as immigration, the integration of the immigrants and the idea that Islam is part of Europe."
"Europe is under a constant threat of terror. Terror is a way of applying pressure on the European countries to surrender constantly to the Arab representatives' demands. They demand, for example, that Europe always speak out for the Palestinians and against Israel."
Thus, the Eurabian project became an enlarged vision of the anti-American Gaullist policy dependent upon the formation of a Euro-Arab entity hostile to American influence. It facilitated European ambitions to maintain important spheres of influence in the former European colonies, while opening huge markets for European products in the Arab world, especially in oil-producing countries, in order to secure supplies of petroleum and natural gas to Europe. In addition, it would make the Mediterranean a Euro-Arab inland sea by favoring Muslim immigration and promoting "multiculturalism" with a strong Islamic presence in Europe.
This cooperation would also included recognition of the Palestinians as a distinct people and the PLO and its leader Arafat as their representative. Up to 1973 they had been known only as Arab refugees, even by other Arabs. The concept of a Palestinian “nation” simply did not exist.
The use of the term "Eurabia" was first introduced in the mid-1970s, as the title of a journal edited by the President of the Association for Franco-Arab Solidarity, Lucien Bitterlein, and published collaboratively by the Groupe d'Etudes sur le Moyen-Orient (Geneva), France-Pays Arabes (Paris), and the Middle East International (London). Their articles called for common Euro-Arab positions at every level. These concrete proposals were not the musings of isolated theorists; instead they put forth concrete policy decisions conceived in conjunction with, and actualized by, European state leaders and European Parliamentarians.
During a November 27, 1967 press conference, Charles de Gaulle stated openly that French cooperation with the Arab world had become "the fundamental basis of our foreign policy." By January 1969, the Second International Conference in Support of the Arab Peoples, held in Cairo, in its resolution 15, decided "…to form special parliamentary groups, where they did not exist, and to use the parliamentary platform support of the Arab people and the Palestinian resistance." Five years later in Paris, July 1974, the Parliamentary Association for Euro-Arab Cooperation was created, under the Euro-Arab Dialogue rubric.
Bat Ye'or has highlighted this shared Euro-Arab political agenda. The first step was the construction of a common foreign policy. France was the driving force in this unification, which had already been envisaged by General de Gaulle's inner circle and Arab politicians. The Arab states demanded from Europe access to Western science and technology, European political independence from the United States, European pressure on the United States to align with their Arab policy and demonization of Israel as a threat to world peace, as well as measures favorable to Arab immigration and dissemination of Islamic culture in Europe. This cooperation would also included recognition of the Palestinians as a distinct people and the PLO and its leader Arafat as their representative. Up to 1973 they had been known only as Arab refugees, even by other Arabs. The concept of a Palestinian "nation" simply did not exist.
During the 1973 oil crisis, the Arab members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries announced that, due to the ongoing Yom Kippur War between Israel and its Arab neighbors Egypt and Syria, OPEC would no longer ship petroleum to Western nations that supported Israel. The sudden increase in oil prices was had lasting effects. Not only did it create a strong influx of petrodollars to countries such as Saudi Arabia, which permitted the Saudis to fund a worldwide Islamic resurgence, but it also had an impact in the West, especially in Europe.
However, Arab leaders had to sell their oil. Their people are very dependent on European economic and technological aid. The Americans made this point during the oil embargo in 1973. According to Bat Ye'or, although the oil factor certainly helped cement the Euro-Arab Dialogue, it was primarily a pretext to cover up a policy that emerged in France before that crisis occurred. The policy, conceived in the 1960s, had strong antecedents in the French 19th-century dream of governing an Arab empire.
This political agenda has been reinforced by the deliberate cultural transformation of Europe. Euro-Arab Dialogue Symposia conducted in Venice (1977) and Hamburg (1983) included recommendations that have been successfully implemented. These recommendations were accompanied by a deliberate, privileged influx of Arab and other Muslim immigrants into Europe in enormous numbers.
The recommendations included:
1. Coordination of the efforts made by the Arab countries to spread the Arabic language and culture in Europe, 2. Creation of joint Euro-Arab Cultural Centers in European capitals, 3. The necessity of supplying European institutions and universities with Arab teachers specialized in teaching Arabic to Europeans, and 4. The necessity of cooperation between European and Arab specialists in order to present a positive picture of Arab-Islamic civilization and contemporary Arab issues to the educated public in Europe.
These agreements could not be set forth in written documents and treaties due to their politically sensitive and fundamentally undemocratic nature. The European leaders thus carefully chose to call their ideas "dialogue." All meetings, committees and working groups included representatives from European Community nations and the European Council along with members from Arab countries and the Arab League. Proceedings and decisions took place in closed sessions. No official minutes were recorded.
The Euro-Arab Dialogue (EAD) is a political, economic and cultural institution designed to ensure perfect cohesion between Europeans and Arabs. Its structure was set up at conferences in Copenhagen (15 December 1973), and Paris (31 July 1974). The principal agent of this policy is the European Parliamentary Association for Euro-Arab Cooperation, founded in 1974. The other principal organs of The Dialogue are the MEDEA Institute and the European Institute of Research on Mediterranean and Euro-Arab Cooperation, created in 1995 with the backing of the European Commission.
The goal was the creation of a pan-Mediterranean entity, permitting the free circulation both of men and of goods.
In an interview with Jamie Glazov of Frontpage Magazine, Bat Ye'or explained how "in domestic policy, the EAD established a close cooperation between the Arab and European media television, radio, journalists, publishing houses, academia, cultural centers, school textbooks, student and youth associations, tourism. Church interfaith dialogues were determinant in the development of this policy. Eurabia is therefore this strong Euro-Arab network of associations -- a comprehensive symbiosis with cooperation and partnership on policy, economy, demography and culture."
Eurabia's driving force, the Parliamentary Association for Euro-Arab Cooperation, was created in Paris in 1974. It now has over six hundred membersfrom all major European political partiesactive in their own national parliaments, as well as in the European parliament. France continues to be the key protagonist of this association.
A wide-ranging policy was sketched out. It entailed a symbiosis of Europe with the Muslim Arab countries that would endow Europeand especially France, the project's prime moverwith a weight and a prestige to rival that of the United States. This policy was undertaken quite discreetly, and well outside of official treaties, using the innocent-sounding name of the Euro-Arab Dialogue. The organization functioned under the auspices of European government ministers, working in close association with their Arab counterparts, and with the representatives of the European Commission and the Arab League. The goal was the creation of a pan-Mediterranean entity, permitting the free circulation both of men and of goods.
On the cultural front there began a complete re-writing of history, which was first undertaken during the 1970s in European universities. This process was ratified by the parliamentary assembly of the Council of Europe in September 1991, at its meeting devoted to "The Contribution of the Islamic Civilisation to European culture." It was reaffirmed by French President Jacques Chirac in his address of April 8, 1996 in Cairo, and reinforced by Romano Prodi, president of the powerful European Commission, the EU's "government," and later Italian Prime Minister, through the creation of a Foundation on the Dialogue of Cultures and Civilizations. This foundation was to control everything said, written and taught about Islam in Europe.
The new European civilization in the making can correctly be termed a civilization of dhimmitude.
Over the past three decades, the EEC and the EU's political and cultural organizations have invented a fantasy Islamic civilization and history. The historical record of violations of basic human rights for all non-Muslims and women under sharia (Islamic Law) is either ignored or dismissed. In this worldview the only dangers come from the United States and Israel. The creators of Eurabia have conducted a successful propaganda campaign against these two countries in the European media. This fabrication was made easier by pre-existing currents of anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism in parts of Europe, although both sentiments have been greatly inflated by Eurabians and their collaborators.
The growth of the Islamic population is explosive. According to some, one out of three babies born in France is a Muslim. Hundreds of Muslim ghettos already de facto follow sharia, not French law. Some believe France will quietly become a Muslim country, while others are predicting a civil war in the near future.ullquote
On January 31, 2001, with the recrudescence of Palestinian terrorist jihad, European Foreign Affairs Commissioner Chris Patten declared to the European Parliament that Europe's foreign policy should give special attention to its southern flank (the Arab countries, in EU jargon), adding that he was delighted by the general agreement to give greater visibility to the Mediterranean Partnership.
Bat Ye'or thinks that "Our politicians are perfectly informed of Islamic history and current policies by their embassies, agents and specialists. There is no innocence there, but tremendous inflexibility in corruption, cynicism and the perversion of values."
In the preface to her book, she states that "This book describes Europe's evolution from a Judeo-Christian civilization, with important post-Enlightenment secular elements, into a post– Judeo-Christian civilization that is subservient to the ideology of jihad and the Islamic powers."
The new European civilization in the making can correctly be termed a ''civilization of dhimmitude.'' The word dhimmitude comes from the Islamic legal designation ''dhimmi.'' It refers to the subjugated, non-Muslim individuals who accept restrictive and humiliating subordination to Islamic power in order to avoid enslavement or death. The entire Muslim world as we know it today is a product of this 1,300 year-old jihad dynamic, whereby once thriving non-Muslim majority civilizations have been reduced to a state of dysfunction and dhimmitude. The dhimmis are inferior beings who endure humiliation and aggression in silence. This arrangement allows Muslims to enjoy an impunity that increases both their hatred and their feeling of superiority, under the protection of the law.
Eurabia is a novel new entity. It possesses political, economic, religious, cultural, and media components, which are imposed on Europe by powerful governmental lobbies. While Europeans live within Eurabia's constraints, outside of a somewhat confused awareness, few are really conscious of them on a daily basis.
This Eurabian policy, expressed in obscure wording, is conducted at the highest political levels and coordinated over the whole of the European Union. It spreads an anti-American and anti-Semitic Euro-Arab sub-culture into the fiber of every social, media and cultural sector. Dissidents are silenced or boycotted. Sometimes they are fired from their jobs, victims of a totalitarian "correctness" imposed mainly by the academic, media and political sectors.
According to Ye'or, France and the rest of Western Europe can no longer change their policy: "It is a project that was conceived, planned and pursued consistently through immigration policy, propaganda, church support, economic associations and aid, cultural, media and academic collaboration. Generations grew up within this political framework; they were educated and conditioned to support it and go along with it."
Are Bat Ye'or's claims correct, or even possible?
Bernard Lewis has pointed out that, by common consent among historians, "the modern history of the Middle East begins in the year 1798, when the French Revolution arrived in Egypt in the form of a small expeditionary force led by a young general called Napoleon Bonapartewho conquered and then ruled it for a while with appalling ease."
In an unsuccessful effort to gain the support of the Egyptian populace, Napoleon issued proclamations praising Islam. "People of Egypt," he proclaimed upon his entry to Alexandria in 1798, "You will be told that I have come to destroy your religion; do not believe it! Reply that I have come to restore your rights, to punish the usurpers, and that more than the Mamluks, I respect God, his Prophet, and the Qur'an."
According to an eyewitness, Napoleon ended his proclamation with the phrase, "God is great and Muhammad is his prophet." To Muslim ears, this sounded like the shahadathe declaration of belief in the oneness of Allah and in Prophet Muhammad as his last messenger. Recitation of the shahadah, the first of the five pillars of Islam, is considered to mark one's conversion to Islam. Muslims could thus conclude that Napoleon had converted to Islam. In fact, one of his generals, Jacques Ménou, did convert to Islam.
The French were later defeated and forced to leave Egypt by the English admiral Lord Nelson. Although the French expedition to Egypt lasted only three years, it demonstrated that the West was now so superior to the Islamic world that Westerners could enter the Arab heartland, then still a part of the Ottoman Empire, at will. Only another Western power could force them to leave. The shock of this realization triggered the first attempts to reform Islam in the 19th century.
A positive result of Western conquest was the influx of French scientists into Egypt and the foundation of modern Egyptology. Most importantly, it led to the discovery of the Rosetta Stone, which was later used by French philologist Jean-Francois Champollion to decipher the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. However, the encounter also left a lasting impact in Europe, and above all in France.
The French invasion of Algeria in 1830 marked another chapter in this tale. Later, the French ruled Tunisia and Morocco. Finally, after the First World War, the French gained mandates over the former Turkish territories of the Ottoman Empire that make up what is now Syria and Lebanon. After the Second World War, French troops gradually left Arab lands, culminating with war and Algerian independence in 1962. However, their long relationship with Arabs resulted in France's belief that she had a special relationship with and an understanding of Arabs and Muslims. Along with French leadership in continental Europe, this would now provide the basis of a new foreign policy. President de Gaulle pushed for a France and a Europe independent of the two superpowers. In a speech, he stated that "Yes, it is Europe, from the Atlantic to the Urals, it is Europe, it is the whole of Europe, that will decide the destiny of the world." In 1966, he withdrew France from the common NATO military command, but remained within the organization.
Following the Six Days War in 1967, de Gaulle's condemnation of the Israelis for their occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip marked a significant change in French foreign policy. Previously, Franceas well as the rest of Western Europehad been strongly pro-Israel, even going to war together with Israel as late as 1956 against Nasser's Egypt. From 1967 on, however, France embarked on a decidedly pro-Arab course.
The growth of the Islamic population is explosive. According to some, one out of three babies born in France is a Muslim. Hundreds of Muslim ghettos already de facto follow sharia, not French law. Some believe France will quietly become a Muslim country, while others are predicting a civil war in the near future.
It has been said that English foreign policy has remained the same since the 16th century. Its goal was to prevent any country, whether Spain, France, or later Germany, from dominating continental Europe to the extent that it represents a threat to England. On the other hand, one could argue that French foreign policy has also remained the same for several centuries; its goal is to champion French leadership over Europe and the Mediterranean region in order to contain Anglo-Saxon (and later Anglo-American) dominance. This picture was complicated by the unification of Germany in the late 19th century, but its outlines remain to this day.
Napoleon is the great hero of French PM de Villepin. Several prominent French leaders stated quite openly in 2005 that the proposed EU Constitution was basically an enlarged France. Justice Minister Dominique Perben said: "We have finally obtained this 'Europe à la française' that we have awaited for so long. This constitutional treaty is an enlarged France. It is a Europe written in French." From its inception, European integration has been a French-led enterprise. The fact that the French political elite have never renounced the maintenance of their leadership over Europe was amply demonstrated during the Iraq war.
President Chirac famously said in 2003 after Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic backed the US position "They missed a good opportunity to shut up," adding "These countries have been not very well behaved and rather reckless of the danger of aligning themselves too rapidly with the American position."
Jean Monnet, French economist never elected to public office, is regarded by many as the architect of European integration. Monnet was a well-connected pragmatist who worked behind the scenes towards the gradual creation of European unity.
Richard North, publisher of the blog EU Referendum and co-author (with Christopher Booker) of The Great Deception: Can The European Union Survive, relates that for yearsat least from the 1920sJean Monnet had dreamed of building a "United States of Europe." Although what Monnet really had in mind was the creation of a European entity with all the attributes of a state, an "anodyne phrasing was deliberately chosen with a view to making it difficult to dilute by converting it into just another intergovernmental body. It was also couched in this fashion so that it would not scare off national governments by emphasising that its purpose was to override their sovereignty."
In their analysis of the EU's history, the authors claim that the EU was not born out of WW2, as many people seem to think. It had been planned at least a generation before that.
The Schuman Declaration of 9 May 1950, widely presented as the beginning of the efforts towards a European Union and commemorated in "Europe Day," contains phrases which state that it is "a first step in the federation of Europe", and that "this proposal will lead to the realization of the first concrete foundation of a European federation." However, as critics of the EU have noted, these political objectives are usually omitted when the Declaration is referred to, and most people are unaware of their existence.
A federation is, of course, a State and "yet for decades now the champions of EC/EU integration have been swearing blind that they have no knowledge of any such plans. The EEC/EC/EU has steadily acquired ever more features of a supranational Federation: flag, anthem, Parliament, Supreme Court, currency, laws."
The EU founders "were careful only to show their citizens the benign features of their project. It had been designed to be implemented incrementally, as an ongoing process, so that no single phase of the project would arouse sufficient opposition as to stop or derail it." Booker and North call the European Union "a slow-motion coup d'état: the most spectacular coup d'état in history," designed to gradually and carefully sideline the democratic process and subdue the older nation states of Europe without saying so publicly.
The irony is that France is now held hostage by the very forces she herself set in motion. The Jihad riots by Muslim immigrants in France in 2005 demonstrated that Eurabia is no longer a matter of French foreign policy, it is now French domestic policy. France will burn unless she continues to appease Arabs and agree to their agenda.
The growth of the Islamic population is explosive. According to some, one out of three babies born in France is a Muslim. Hundreds of Muslim ghettos already de facto follow sharia, not French law. Some believe France will quietly become a Muslim country, while others are predicting a civil war in the near future.
Maybe there is some poetic justice in the fact that the country that initiated and has led the formation of Eurabia will now be destroyed by its own Frankenstein monster. However, gloating over France's dilemma won't help. The impending downfall of France is bad news for the rest of the West. What will happen to French financial resources? Above all, who will inherit hundreds of nuclear warheads? Will these weapons fall into the hands of Jihadist Muslims, too?

CAPITALISM IS NO LONGER the doting parentage we in the West grew up with in the 40s-60s.The one that gave rise to the middle class standards of living which became defined as the American Dream.
The super rich want to combine Capitalism and Socialism to create an American Plutocracy, an oligarchy run by the wealthiest segements who pass legislation beneficial only to them and their corporation that all the rest of us must endure and live meager lives to support.
Instead, one may say that America is becoming a Capitalistic Socialist nation. The combining of pure authoritarian communism and the power and capital of capitalism. This was the famous writer Jack London's fear back in the early 1930s just before he perished of alcoholism. When has a corporation ever been run like a democracy? Never! The CEO is the dictator authoritarian in charge, the upper management is the stalag, and the share holders are the Soviet Politburo. The workers (the masses) are the peasant class exploited for their cheap labor, skills, capital and anything of value.
Big Government is only as big as the corporate elite make it. The United States government is the best government big money can buy! Forget about Left vs. Right, Government is owned, run and paid for by corporate America thank to electioneering contributions.
Why do you think Democratic or Republican administrations put ex-corporate CEOs and Fortune 700 business giants into postions of authority for all of its beaurocratic Departments. Government is created by the corporate masters to do its dirty work, passing well-disguised legislation to benefit the rich at the little man's expense, and to also give us—the American people—the illusion of a party vs. party system of democracy. A dog and pony show the puppeteer puts on while controlling both Left and Right with its dueling Big Government ideologies. A man and his politics isn't much different than a dog and her groom. Both relationships require trust and obedience.
Despite all the boastful chatter about the job creators, it seems worthy to note of this ponzi math problem that with each generation the uber wealthy cartel are the real threat to human decency, freedom, liberty and democracies everywhere. The super rich want to combine Capitalism and Socialism to create an American Plutocracy, an oligarchy run by the wealthiest segements who pass legislation beneficial only to them and their corporation that all the rest of us must endure and live meager lives to support. And why should they not? Given that self-interest is the less than pliant mantra of all that is big capitalism? Unchecked power accumulation (and its objective wealth) has always been the salient flaw in Ayn Rand's capitalistic Objectivist philosophy.
Rarely in the best interest of the struggling masses, despite Rand's insistance that the worker has a level playing field in dealing with the bosses. The honest Objectivist is as much a myth as the Barry Bonds home run record. Both require an asterisk. In fact, Raw Objectivism, Big Capitalism, Communist Fascism bare little resemblance to freedom or democracy for those remaining taskless in the outskirts of civil decency with nothing of their own but earnest desires to fend and toil for themselves on an empty field. That's the very definition of irresponsible winning.
Yet, scanning a Democracy, a Republic or a pure Autocratic Totalitarian state, one thing can be counted on as certain. The men with the money are always wrapped in a flag and deemed democratically free, and are without restraint to continue their plundering and amassing.
All of the above can be said and BE TRUE without giving up on Tea Party values.
This realization makes a patriotic American very sad. I say let's annoint Newt Ginginch, Allen West, John Bolten, Marco Rubio, Sarah Palin and others to the awful task of rebuilding our nation, a reproof to what the generations of corrupt self-indulgent politicians have wrought upon us...

HEY BRIGHT PATRIOTS. IT'S TIME WE TAKE ANOTHER hospitable blow to the cheek from the always spot-on Ranger Joe, in a comment of his we discovered over at the stalwart American Thinker. The RJ comment really requires no other introductory context than a quick memory flash to the "permanent record" the current administration denies we have witnessed play out so far. Thanks to the snippy corporate media, a rather portentous and lawless organism which lives and dies by the snappy snippet, there is still ten percent of the population who haven't caught a clue.
Let's whittle, however, that context down to a glance at His BO Majesties debt ceiling theatreplayed to an audience suffering in type after Ben Franklin's own Paradise Lost, patients, few of which seem very happy over this deal of a republic gone fiscally, and thus existentially mad, except those knaves who were spinning us for all we've got in our pockets, constitutions, and nerve:
Why can't people get it through their thick skulls that The Great Obama Decline is deliberate social engineering. Wake up and smell the coffee. We are supposed to be insecure and worried about the future. It's the manipulation of a street con artist to extort protection money from a nervous fruit cart vendor...aka...community organizing. The Leninist left are masters of mass psychology. They've studied us like lab rats. Ivy League social scientists are engineering this whole debacle. All the angry conservative pundits on FBN can't shame these fools because they love the media exposure. From private individuals to the government we are in irretrievable debt up to our eyeballs. As prices slowly go up and income stays the same...people break out in a cold panic sweat. The collapse of the free market is the ancient goal of the Marxist Cult. An economic depression will cause Greek-style unrest and the imposition of Martial Law will follow.

I think the greatest fault of both men, Gandhi and King, was that they gave people more credit for being SANE than people actually have coming. I agree that culture and the morality of that culture has ALL to do with itand maybe their judgement was clouded by the idea that all men are basically good. The concept that evil is not inherent in society is rather more hopeful than reality demonstrates. Evil can be born in some, created in others and encouraged by circumstanceand damn sure rears it's ugly head quite too often for people to be as trusting or appeasing as they have been over the history of humanitybut people like King and Gandhi still try, and die for it.
I think the basic principle of both men, as thinkers, was that a person should be judged by their CHARACTER rather than any other more mundane or cosmetic aspect such as race, national origin or religion. Gandhi was sadly disappointed by the adherents of islamas Islam has no people of character, just human slaves to imams and ideals in complete opposition to sanity.-Tonto
That's the trouble with honest to God pacifists. Someone usually sends them a bullet instead of flowers, so the rest of us mourn and take up arms...
AMID THE CHAOTIC WEATHER SYSTEMS thus far in 2011, the federal government has twisted and exacerbated a natural catastrophe to victimize American farming families, while subsequently staging a land grab to further the UN’s Agenda 21 protocols, all at once. Despite record amounts of snowfall this past winter, the snowpack was measured and melted predictably. Yet the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers claimed to be surprised by the melt-water amounts. As a result, they planned to detonate the Birds Point levee in Missouri to prevent runoff water from devastating the town of Cairo, Ill. Bizarrely, the feds thought it more intelligent to flood 130,000 acres of rural farmland, and thus a necessary part of the food supply, than to affect an urban zone of 2,800 people, one-third of whom already live below the poverty level.
Detonated levees might bring the Ninth Ward of New Orleans to mind, and one might suspect the federal government was attempting to avoid another accusation of racism, classism and inaction. However, commodities broker Ann Barnhardt has revealed another possible scheme at work. She wrote on her website: “A Missouri farming and ranching contact just got off a conference call wherein he was informed that the federal government is sending out letters to all of the flooded farmers in the Missouri River flood plain notifying them that the Army Corps of Engineers will offer to buy their land.”
The Kansas City Star supports this claim, reporting that 17 Missouri families received a letter from the Army Corps of Engineers “offering to buy private land along the Missouri River for a wildlife conservation project. The letter was dated June 6, when floodwaters were beginning to rise.”
Later in the article, it was noted that “Karl Mueller, chief of civil works for the Army Corps’ Kansas City office, said the agency was not taking advantage of the flooding to buy farmland” and that the letters were a case of “unfortunate timing.” When asked if the government would be compensating them for losses, Ms. Barnhardt told this reporter: “Of course not. The feds are calling it an act of God.” Ms. Barnhardt also makes the stunning connection of George Soros and a company he is investing in called Ospraie Capital Management. It seems Ospraie is also buying farmland, and Soros’s investments have netted him control of “the third-largest grain company in the U.S., with 280 million bushels of storage capacity.”
The liberal Center for American Progress receives large donations from Soros. Plus, its former executive vice president for policy, Melody Barnes, was recently named to the White House Rural Council.
According to a popular news website, The Blaze, this council “makes recommendations to the president on streamlining and leveraging federal investments in rural areas to increase the impact of federal dollars and create economic opportunities to improve the quality of life in rural America.” The group’s staffers also “coordinate federal efforts directed toward the growth and development of geographic regions that encompass both urban and rural areas” which, The Blaze states, “sounds very similar to the language found in the UN plan for sustainable cities known as Agenda 21.”
Ms. Barnhardt says, “This is about driving everything toward a Marxist utopia. They are attempting to control the food supply and are seeking to make private agricultural banking virtually impossible by forcing all agricultural lending through the USDA and the government.”
