Rejecting The Imperial Presidency

President Obama
President Obama

Iow did this once great nation of George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, and many others of high morals and proven action choose governmental rot instead of constitutional liberty, economic slavery over national sovereignty? Here we quiver, uncertain, unprotected, quibbling while over $15 trillion in crushing debt. Where does this dark road—now ruled by executive fiat—crumb by crumb to personal serfdom end? What can we the citizenry do? Take note that Barack Hussein Obama became the Imperial President over the last 4 years:

    WHEN
  • people started treating him as a Messiah and children in schools were taught to sing his praises, people said it didn't matter.
    WHEN
  • he stood with his hands over his groin area for the playing of the National Anthem and Pledge of Allegiance, rather than put his hand over his heart; people said it didn't matter.
    WHEN
  • he surrounded himself in the White House with advisors who were pro-gun control, pro-abortion, pro-homosexual marriage and wanting to curtail freedom of speech to silence the opposition, people said it didn't matter.
    WHEN

    WHEN

    WHEN
  • he started appointing White House Czars that were radicals, revolutionaries, and even avowed Marxist /Communists, people said it didn't matter.

    WHEN
  • Valerie Jarrett, an avowed Socialist, was selected as Obama's Senior White House Advisor, people said it didn't matter.
    WHEN
  • Anita Dunn, White House Communications Director, said Mao Tse Tung was her favorite philosopher and the person she turned to most for inspiration, people said it didn't matter.
    WHEN
  • he appointed Carol Browner, a well-known socialist as Global Warming Czar working on Cap and Trade as the nation's largest tax, people said it didn't matter.
    WHEN
  • he appointed Van Jones, an ex-con and avowed Communist as Green Energy Czar, who since had to resign when this was made known, people said it didn't matter.
    WHEN
  • Tom Daschle, Obama's pick for Health and Human Services Secretary could not be confirmed because he was a tax cheat, people said it didn't matter.
    WHEN
  • as President of the United States, he bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, people said it didn't matter.
    WHEN

  • he claimed he was a Christian during the election and tapes were later made public that showed Obama speaking to a Muslim group and 'stating' that he was raised a Muslim, was educated as a Muslim, and is still a Muslim, people said it didn't matter.
    WHEN
  • he set into motion a plan to take over the control of all energy in the United States through Cap and Trade, people said it didn't matter.
    WHEN
  • he finally completes his transformation of America into a Socialist State, people will wake up—but it will be too late. Our tickets will be punched. We must act now. Add these up one by one and you get a phenomenal map that points to the fact that President Obama is determined to "transform" America into a Marxist-Socialist society. All of the items in the preceding paragraphs have been put into place. All can be documented very easily. Before you disavow this do an Internet search. The last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone. You and I will write that paragraph. Will it read as above or will it be a more happy ending for most of America ?

Don't just belittle the opposition. Search for the truth. We all need to pull together or watch the demise of a free democratic society, only just hanging on by a thread as it is. Pray for Americans to seek the truth and take action for it will keep us FREE. Our biggest enemy is not China, Russia, North Korea, Iran or even the Muslim Brotherhood in the White House. Our biggest enemy is a large contingent of self-serving sold-out politicians in Washington, DC.

Question—will you delete this, or pass it on to others who don't know about Obama's actions and plans for the USA, so that they may know how to vote in November, 2012 and the ensuing years? It's your decision. I believe it does matter who occupies in the Oval Office and Congress. How about you?

    WHEN
  • November 2012 comes, it will matter that you vote and for whom you vote!

The Cracking Left As Evidenced By Odd Bedfellows

Jolly Nick Cohen has said it so well, I won't even begin to add to his eloquent insights into the confusion of the Old Left with the New Reality in his bruising piece originally reposted here on Oct 24, 2006, called: "Where Have All The Pacifists Gone?" Now if only the Left will crumble into dust and blow away. Here are the first few paragraphs of the right persuasive piece.

"You Can't Read This Book" by Nick Cohen
BEFORE YOU GO TO A LEFT-WING meeting, brace yourself for the likelihood that everyone you meet in the hall will be standing on their heads. Do not be surprised to see communists supporting fascism, feminists throwing their arms around misogynists and liberals volunteering to be advocates for tyranny. It’s been like this since 9/11 turned the world upside down, and the temptation for a journalist is to play the cynical reporter and pretend to be unshockable. I try my best to be a hard man, but the shocks keep on coming. Take the fates of two venerable left-wing institutions, the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and Searchlight.

For 18 months I’ve had CND workers telling me how they have been forced out by the same people who disgraced the anti-war movement – the Socialist Workers Party, Ken Livingstone’s homeboys from Socialist Action, the Jeremy Corbyn wing of the Labour Party . . . the friends of the indefatigable George Galloway, in short. I couldn’t see how to write about it. How could I prove that they were victims of a political purge rather than guilty of poor performance? In any case, there was always an element of a Quaker-communist alliance about the old CND, and the ideas it produced weren’t always wrong. CND’s policy of unilateral nuclear disarmament was political poison for Labour because it was so clearly in the interests of the Soviet Union, but CND had a second argument that was truer than its legions of critics in the 1980s admitted. Nuclear power breeds nuclear weapons and nuclear weapons breed more nuclear weapons, CND’s argument ran. Unless proliferation stops, they will get into the hands of men who are prepared to use them.

That was then. Anyone who now believes CND is as much against proliferation as for unilateral disarmament would have been surprised by this autumn’s annual conference. Among the guests was the startling figure of Dr Seyed Mohammad Hossein Adeli, the then Iranian ambassador. Iran is building the nuclear power stations CND once protested against – an odd project for a country with one of the largest reserves of oil in the world. Not only the US government but the United Nations and the European Union suspect the Islamic Republic wants the bomb. The obvious course for those sincere about nuclear disarmament is to oppose Tehran as vigorously as they oppose a replacement for Trident. But there’s the rub. Standing by its principles would, if only for a moment, have put CND on the same side as George W Bush and Tony Blair, and that would never do.

Betrayal has defined the liberal left since Iraq because anti-Americans find their comrades in the Kurdish socialist movement or the Iraqi Communist Party or Arab liberal parties an embarrassment and cannot stick by them or even acknowledge their existence. Given that record, I guess it was inevitable that CND, whose governing council is stuffed with people who call themselves “socialists”, “workers” and “communists”, would take the next step and betray the Iranian left.

Severing Islam From The Fevers Which Harm All

Islam Protests
Islam Protests
ON THE TIN PLATED HEELS OF AN ANNOUNCEMENT, surprising many, by British prime minister Tony Blair that the country needed to debate the impact of Islam on British soil and modernism, I just watched an interesting report on CNN. They showed a large gathering of Muslims protesting outside a prominent Catholic church in London. They were protesting against the Pope. How long has this churlish tantrum been going on now, two, three weeks?

The Muslims were screaming obligatory death threats against anyone who dared speak out against their ruthless prophet or their Allah, carrying signs reading "Islam will defeat Rome."

Another scrawled placard read: Bush, Blair and the Pope = Evil Trinity

—and more of the usual rhetoric that is finally becoming recognized as the common political signature of Muslims spanning across the globe thanks to the latest wave of Islamic ascendency.

What struck me about this report is that they actually showed a few outraged British citizens who were brave enough to briefly say to hell with political correctness in order to argue with some of them. One man said: "Could you just imagine if WE were to protest and threaten like this, and in front of a mosque? Oh no, that would not be tolerated".

No, it wouldn't. We would have our heads cut off. Perhaps Britain will shake a leg, and imagine itself proper to the task in making a good debate after all.

An America Patriot Has Passed On A Legacy Worth Emulating

Of course Andrew Breitbart, an American patriot extraordinaire, is worthy of all the words, those of favor and those of disgust hurled at him as a political man with drawn digit in the sand, before and after his life ended so suddenly, unexpectedly, mysteriously, tragically, unspectacularly just after midnight last Thursday as he was walking near his home. He collapsed, and at 43, still a young man, he was gone.

We knew him through his untiring investigative journalism, his tough stances against the unhinged Left and against who and what he considered violent, seditious, determined enemies of the the state in many cases, but certainly enemies of the people, the people who still believe in constitutional loyalty, liberty, justice, courage, responsibility, and the American way. Protection from the government and the forces of the mob. But I'll step aside and let his friend, Robert Spencer share his version of Andrew Breitbart...

Andrew Breitbart & US Flag
Andrew Breitbart
AMONG THE MANY THINGS that made Andrew Breitbart a great man was that he was not playing defense. So many, many times I have been speaking at anti-jihad events and heard other speakers saying, "We are not racists, we are not bigots, we are not Islamophobes..." We have allowed the jihadists and Islamic supremacists, and their Leftist allies, to put us on the defensive. We're always apologizing, tacitly accepting their narrative and responding to them in the parameters they set up. Even worse, many even among the anti-jihadists eagerly throw their colleagues under the bus—those colleagues whom the Left and the Islamic supremacists have started to zero in on. They're the ones we should be standing up for the most resolutely, for they are drawing fire because they are effective.

Instead of bowing and scraping to the Islamic supremacists and feebly protesting that we're not really racists and hatemongers and all the other calumnies and canards they throw at us, we should be taking the fight to them, and standing up and saying, "You are fronting for the most oppressive ideology on the face of the earth. You are fronting for evil. You are carrying water and running interference for the denial of free speech, the denial of the freedom of conscience, the institutionalized oppression of women, the subjugation of non-Muslims, and worse. You're fronting for stonings, amputations, the murder of apostates, the treatment of women as possessions of men, the madness and senseless violence that we see in this furor over the Qur'an-burnings, and more. You shout us down on campuses and do everything you can to make sure we are not heard in the public square. And you call us fascists? You are the quintessence of fascism."

Common Threads Of Modern Life Strafed By Islam

hushmoneyTHE NEXT TIME A PROUD BUT CRIMINALLY impaired advocate of Mohammedanism lashes out at you, claiming his favorite prophet was not a mass murdering warlord, an enslaver of women and children, a serial rapist and pedophile who dictated a book on how to make war by terror, on how to infiltrate the non-Mohammedan enemy with the baby-making machine of polygamy, and whose doctrine of bold-faced lying in the name of religion, just remember who this person is:

An illiterate Muslim doing what an illiterate Muslim does, protecting his pernicious sorry self, projecting his sorry self onto others, and prospecting for new victims of his poisonous porridge with rancor, lies, ignorance, and other pernicious acts, undisturbed by Islam's own history or Western jurisprudence...

And also remember, this beast of a man known as Mohammed is also the perfect example of a human life for his followers to aspire. Those who call themselves Christians also claim the same distinction about Yahshua, or Jesus. Compare for yourself. Mohammed or Jesus? You don't have to be a follower of either of these figures to resolve this issue, unless of course, you already have an agenda which conflicts with the obvious.

The West's Turning Tide Toward Conservatism

David Mamet
David Mamet

FOR THOSE OF US WHO HAVE STARED into the soul-gnarling lies, generalized apathy, distortion, and social cannibalism the vast wasteland that Hollywood and its imperialist camps scattered across this once great nation prop up in celebration of diversity to mock purported failures of conservatism and its time-tested platform, and not its own bankrupt utopian visions (for others less talented than them), we can once again embrace a brief respite from the horrors of this cultural war. The turning tide now includes former lefty artist extraordinaire, David Mamet. Pulitzer Prize winner and Oscar nominee David Mamet, who in the eyes of many is America’s greatest living playwright as well as a successful screenwriter and movie director (his better known plays and films include Glengarry Glen Ross, American Buffalo, Speed the Plow, The Verdict and House of Games) has published an important book called The Secret Knowledge: On the Dismantling of American Culture, in which, in a no-holds barred approach, he expounds his political and cultural beliefs on the world in general and America in particular.

Mamet, like many in the US today, though probably less so among the usual Hollywood and Broadway types, has in recent years come full circle from starry-eyed liberal to determined conservative, giving short thrift to most of American liberals’ “sacred cows,” in particular ridiculing many of the programs and policies of the current administration with regard to education, economics, health-care, multiculturalism etc.

Liberalism is understood in the US in a very different way than in Europe (and Israel). While in the Old World liberalism is a political philosophy which argues for freedom of the individual in all his activities, including economics, religion, etc. and in particular espouses limited government – in America it is nearly the exact opposite, connoting, among other things, a major role for the state in most of the above. In effect, American liberalism has a much closer relationship with European-style socialism than with classical liberalism.

But while some of Mamet’s polemics about the American political and social scenes may, in the view of some, be debatable or exaggerated, what makes his new book especially important, certainly for Jews, and what sets him apart from some other Jewish intellectuals, is his straightforward, clear-headed and clear-eyed approach to all things Jewish and Israeli. A proud and committed Jew, he closely identifies with the State of Israel, referring to its enemies as “our opponents.”

White Nationalism?

An interesting comment to an AT article on the history of race inertia from the earliest beginnings of the United States of America caught my attention and will always seek to find adequate articulation, not because of my own consuming interest, but because of how urgent a question it seems to be for so many in the quest for survival who put all their marbles on the race card...

Race is a classification system used to categorize humans into large and distinct populations or groups by heritable phenotypic characteristics, geographic ancestry, physical appearance, and ethnicity, and in some senses is a natural reaction to the other in a world of danger and obfuscation. In the early twentieth century the term was often used, in its taxonomic sense, to denote genetically diverse human populations whose members possessed similar phenotypes, but is it truly the final salvo in sorting out one's identity from that of another when developing hostilities between ethnic groups divided on the basis of racial group or skin color seem unavoidable. All too often the color of one's skin does trump so many other measures of a human being's faith, power, and glory.

Power goes to the prepared and the committed...

WHITE WAS THE 19th century's way of saying "Euro-American in terms of culture, values, and behavior." Henry Ford wrote of "the White Man's Code" as late as 1922 even though he hired Blacks and paid them the same wages he paid Caucasians in the same jobs. No law at the time said he had to do that. At the time, however (e.g. when Kipling wrote "The White Man's Burden,") Japan was the only advanced nonwhite-majority nation on earth. Civilized therefore equaled "white" although it was recognized that not all ethnic Caucasians were advanced or even civilized. A Venn diagram would show "civilized" as a subset of "white" (Japan being the sole exception) and not the other way around.

This does not mean that people of nonwhite origins cannot and do not adopt Euro-American values. Japan made a collective decision to do that in the mid-19th century. African-Americans, Asian Americans, and so on have Euro-American values and are therefore what Kipling and his contemporaries would have called "white." Kipling's "Gunga Din" in fact recognizes that a nonwhite person can have these values and adhere to them better than an Englishman; the light-skinned Briton admits at the end, "You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din." The poem in fact judges the characters not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character, which was entirely consistent with Kipling's membership in a racially-diverse Mason's lodge in India (see "The Mother Lodge").

What stinks about the Third World is not the color of its skin (which includes all three races) but rather the content of its character. I refer very specifically to Sharia and other militant "Islamic" beliefs, and Europe ought to prevent their immigration and expel the ones already there.
Furthermore, other non-Caucasian countries are now highly civilized as shown by Freedom House's ratings for places like Taiwan and South Korea, while Caucasian-majority Russia along with the racially Caucasian Palestinians and Iranians (Aryans, in fact) are rated "Not Free." What stinks about the Third World is not the color of its skin (which includes all three races) but rather the content of its character.

The economically and socially advanced nature of Euro-American nations over the rest of the world, even regions with substantial oil wealth, is proof that our way of life is superior and theirs is inferior. A society that, for example, prevents girls from going to school (as is the case in parts of Afghanistan) denies itself half of its human potential up front and will therefore be inferior.

The proper conclusion is therefore that anybody who shares our (Euro-American) values, attitudes, and behavioral codes is "one of us" regardless of his or her appearance or ethnicity, and anybody who subscribes to an inferior Third World culture—the kind that keeps the people ignorant, squalid, and poor—is "one of them" regardless of his or her appearance or ethnicity, and is therefore an undesirable. I refer very specifically to Sharia and other militant "Islamic" beliefs, and Europe ought to prevent their immigration and expel the ones already there.
