Sticks and Stones

offended

It’s official!  According to Dennis Miller, a conservative leaning American stand-up comedian and political commentator, “Names now hurt us more than sticks and stones.”  It’s the dawn of a new age, the age of the oh-so-easily offended!

These mindless PC zombies are an extremely aggravating breed with very little useful purpose on the planet that I can see … I mean other than destroying our country and our culture. They are mindless drones who only know one thing … what offends them.  A prime example are to two reporters who heckled Donald Trump and Jeb Bush for using the term “anchor babies” on separate occasions.  It seems neither reporter could come up with a viable alternative for the term, but both were so obviously offended by the term that I thought I could even hear their bones breaking!

It is odd that these folks are so often the ones lecturing to us about the utmost importance of “freedom of speech,” but yet they’re the first to shoot down the opinions of anyone brave enough to express a point of view that isn’t identical to theirs.  It’s the height of hypocrisy to yell stridently about freedom of speech and then ruthlessly attack anyone who say anything you disagree with or don’t want to hear.

I think these folks need a  little mental toughness instilled in them.  Perhaps we should capture them, tie them to a chair and force them to repeatedly watch Grand Torino until they see the error of their ways.  Just saying!

We have devolved into the most whiniest, most thin-skinned, easily-offended society in history!  Americans have become a nation of cry-babies!  We have developed a unlimited capacity for being offended and, it has become our national pastime.

My Immigration Reform Plan

For me, real immigration reform does put the needs of the American people first.  It does seem we are the only country in the world whose immigration system puts the needs of other nations ahead of our own. I agree with Donald Trump that this must change.

America_the_Free

Here are my three core principles for real immigration reform:

  1. A sovereign nation must control its borders.

We must stop both the flow of illegal immigrants across our borders and stop those entering with student Visas, etc. from staying beyond the period allowed under their visa.  We must control our southern border.  This may include a wall for many sections of the border and perhaps electronic monitoring or other sensors for other sections of the border.  We must increase the number of border patrol agents and allow them to do their job correctly while working in concert with local law enforcement agencies.  Illegal aliens with criminal records should be immediately deported and not allowed back into the country.  Illegal aliens with clean records (other than breaking our immigration laws) who are working and contributing members of their communities should be given a path to citizenship that includes making restitution for breaking our immigration laws (perhaps a fine, community service, or military service) and then be allowed to apply for legal status.  They should not be placed in front of those who are currently going through the legal immigration process.  Sanctuary cites should lose all funding from federal and state governments.

  1. We are a nation of laws.

All laws passed in accordance with our Constitutional system of government must be enforced by the executive branch.  The president and other law enforcement agencies do not get to pick and choose which laws they will enforce.  Reform the current immigration system to allow for more efficient legal immigration.

  1. The federal government exists to protect the rights of its citizens.

Any immigration reform plan must protect and improve the jobs, wages and security of all American citizens and legal immigrants.

FAQS:  The cost of not building a wall

  • Leaders in Mexico and other Latin American countries have been taking advantage of the United States by using illegal immigration to export the crime and poverty in their own country. The cost to the American taxpayer has been burdensome.  U.S. taxpayers have been forced to pick up billions in healthcare costs, housing costs, education costs, welfare costs, etc. The effects on jobseekers have also been disastrous, and black and Hispanic Americans have been especially harmed.
  • The impact in terms of crime has indeed been tragic. Recent headlines have covered cases of criminals who crossed our border illegally only to go on to commit horrific crimes against Americans. Most recently, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, with a long arrest record, is charged with breaking into a 64 year-old women’s home, crushing her skull and eye sockets with a hammer, raping her, and murdering her. The “blood trail” does indeed lead straight back to Washington, DC and Barack Obama.

Illegals flashing gang signs MS El Salvador

  • In 2011, the Government Accountability Office determined that there were 3 million arrests attached to the incarcerated alien population, including tens of thousands of violent beatings, rapes and murders (This figure is from the Obama administration’s own GAO).
  • Mexico makes billions on our bad trade deals and from the billions of dollars in remittances sent from illegal immigrants in the United States back to Mexico ($22 billion in 2013 alone).

Why I am an Independent Voter!

american-pride-ebook-stories-usa-logo_full

A comment was aimed at me the other day beginning with the words, “You republicans …….!”   Some people just do not get it at all.  It is no longer about Republican versus Democrat.  It is about the destruction of America!

I am not a Republican although I was for a period of time.  The Republican Party has let me down too many times now.  Can you tell me what the Republican Party stands for?  I can!  It stands for nothing.  They make promises to constituents to get elected and then cave on those same issues at the slightest pressure from the White House, the Democrats, or the press.  And, they do this despite having been given a majority in both Houses of Congress by the voters.  So either they suffer from completely deflated balls or they are RINOS.  It really doesn’t matter at this point.  I know there are a few truly conservative Republicans trying to do something to protect Americans but they are hamstrung and attacked by their own party.  This is why I am no longer a Republican.

I can certainly see what the Democratic Party stands for today.  It is obvious if you watch the news.  The current Democratic Party stands for Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby parts, making terrible deals with our enemies while abandoning our allies, giving illegal aliens free rein to steal from, rape and murder American citizens.  You think Trump is wrong?  He may not be the candidate of choice for me, but at least he speaks the truth.  The murder of Kathryn Steinle on the Embarcadero in San Francisco by an illegal alien is only the most recent example of a crime committed by an illegal alien.   Laura Wilkerson’s 18-year-old son was brutally tortured and murdered by a classmate he had offered a ride home.  The classmate would have been one of Obama’s “Dreamers.”

During testimony before the Congressional Judiciary Committee by parents of victims and Texas State Officials, it was revealed that illegal aliens have been involved in thousands of crimes in Texas alone, including nearly 3,000 homicides.  According to the analysis conducted by the Texas Department of Public Safety, illegal aliens committed 611,234 unique crimes in Texas from 2008 to 2014, including thousands of homicides and sexual assaults.  The report describes an alien crime wave of staggering proportions exacerbated by federal officials unwilling to enforce immigration laws. The Texas DPS report says well over 100,000 individual criminal aliens have been booked into Texas jails.

Let’s see.  In light of this illegal alien crime wave and increasing terrorist attacks on American  soil, the Democratic Party stands for disarming law-abiding American citizens.  They also stand for ignoring the rule of law and dismantling or circumventing the U.S. Constitution, dismantling our military, destroying our economy while fudging unemployment numbers, and subjecting U.S. Citizens to being ruled by the United Nations.

As a friend of mine posted:

Can we stop calling those on the far left liberals and progressives? Nice sounding terms but their actual political platform is Statism and Totalitarianism. Obsessed with “correct thought” and “Correct speech”, [and] the sacrifice of individual choice to ideological “experts”.  In no way is this thinking liberal or progressive. It is very regressive, the exact same policies were the foundation of Statist and Totalitarian regimes from Mao to Stalin, Mussolini and Hitler.  Identity politics, class warfare, racial politics, statistical law making, central planning, there is no correlation between these ideas and classical liberalism, or any of the founding documents of this country. These factors were the dominant trends that made people leave Europe and establish a country based on sovereign States, individual liberty and property rights. Our “liberals” fight against State sovereignty, individual liberty and individual property rights. And our population is apparently too poorly educated to understand our own history.

NY Criminals: Don’t ask, don’t tell!

“In front of emotional supporters, New York City Mayor de Blasio signed legislation Monday that will prohibit employers from inquiring about a candidate’s criminal record prior to a job offer.”

Everyone’s favorite leftist liberal nut-case mayor is at it again!  Mayor de Blasio signed a law that will make it illegal for employers to ask prospective employees about their criminal background. So, for instance, if you run a day care and you want to know if an applicant has ever done anything bad such as kidnap or molest a child … sorry!  You’re now SOL!  The new  policy is “Don’t ask … don’t tell!

I am sure this will work out so well!

Especially since he is already on such good terms with the New York City Police Department!  How many of you New York liberals will want to take your kids to a daycare or let a service provider into your house in New York City after this law goes into effect?

Now that’s some real progress for you!

Defining ‘New Liberalism”

Another comment by Dan Gilbert:

“Classical liberalism” is the term used to designate the ideology advocating private property, an unhampered market economy, the rule of law, constitutional guarantees of freedom of religion and of the press, and international peace based on free trade. Up until around 1900, this ideology was generally known simply as liberalism. The qualifying “classical” is now usually necessary, in English-speaking countries at least (but not, for instance, in France), because liberalism has come to be associated with wide-ranging interferences with private property and the market on behalf of egalitarian goals. This version of liberalism — if such it can still be called — is sometimes designated as “social,” or (erroneously) “modern” or the “new,” liberalism. – Mises Institute.

Today what we have is Statism masquerading as Liberalism.

Socialist Slavery

And that is exactly what we have!  And, it is no secret why if you just take a look.  You can follow the Obama administration’s agenda and tactics point-by-point simply by picking up a copy of Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky and reading for your selves.  Saul Alinsky was a communist agitator.  His book is both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s political strategy manual.

Indeed, Hillary Clinton was greatly influenced by Saul Alinsky.  She did disagree with some of his methodology and argued that to effect the real change Alinsky advocated, you had to become part of the system and bring it down from within.  This translates into … do whatever it takes to get elected (including lie, cheat and steal),  and once in the system work to bring about its downfall.  Yeah, I know.  It ‘s all a “vast right-wing conspiracy!”  Do you remember that saying we had as young kids … whomever calls someone else a name – is really it.  There is a lot of truth to that childish saying.  Can you name one positive and successful thing accomplished by Hillary Clinton as First Lady, as a senator from New York, or as Secretary of State?  I can’t.  Neither could a panel of liberal voters given that question during a panel discussion.  You can see it here.  But, you can find her at the center of several questionable scandals and possibly illegal actions

Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveals new details about her true relationship with the controversial Chicago communist activist and shed light on her early ideological development.

Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing.  Her relationship with Saul Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969 as demonstrated by two letters Clinton wrote to Alinsky. These letters can be viewed here.

These letters are part of the archives for the Industrial Areas Foundation, a training center for community organizers founded by Alinsky, which are housed at the University of Texas at Austin.  The IAF is also, incidentally, where Obama received his political  “community organizer” training and served as an instructor for a time.

The letters also suggest that Alinsky, who died in 1972, had a deeper influence on Clinton’s early political views than previously known.

America: A liberal Skew!

Forward

There is no doubt liberal progressives really do such a fantastic job lying to the American people.

Conservatives need to develop a simple message that enables the “bumper sticker” mentality of the American electorate to realize they are being fed a hearty helping of bullshit. The political, media, and entertainment elite are pulling the wool over the eyes of everyday hard working Americans; and for what purpose? Their own selfish gain and interest.

I know some of you have already figured this out, but for those who haven’t, consider the following statements I saw once posted by Allen West:

The word conundrum is defined as a complex problem that is often puzzling or confusing. Here are six conundrums that exist in our contemporary United States of America.

  • America is capitalist and greedy – yet almost half of the population is subsidized
  • Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims.
  • They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government.
  • Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.
  • The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
  • They have things that people in other countries only dream about – yet politicians (mostly progressive socialists) claim they want America to become more like those other countries.

And consider these following three observations about the current direction of our federal government and cultural environment:

  • We are advised not to judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but on the other hand, we are admonished to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works, as we see the liberal progressives already jumping on the recent tragedy in South Carolina. So what about the increase in stabbing victims, should we ban knives? I heard on the news yesterday that a man tried to poison a coworker by putting weed killer in his water bottle on several occasions.  Do we now also ban weed killer?
  • We constantly hear about how Social Security is running out of money. How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps on the verge of running out of money? Maybe the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t. It is a simple case of printing money for political bribery and extortion.
  • Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, giving no pay raises for our military and cutting our forces to a level lower than before WWII, but are expanding and increasing the benefits to illegal aliens? It is all about pandering for votes!  Who cares about national security or veterans dying at the hands of their own Veterans Administration?

Before you call me a racist at me and start scrabbling around for another flag to ban, calm down and think about these points for a minute.  To use a cliché that is probably banned by now for being  politically incorrect or even inciting gun violence – they seem to be pretty much “dead on target”

The newest rage … “Pseudo Intellectualism”

untitled

Dan Gilbert commented that:

“Intellectuals” these days are an interesting breed. Historically intellectuals enjoyed exploring all aspects of a given situation. They compared facts, sought out further study if the research wasn’t clear. They enjoyed defending their opponent’s position to strengthen their own case. Intellectuals valued the intellect and constructive debate. They were very concerned with the preservation of the concept of free speech, valuing opinions different from their own.

Today, so-called intellectuals seek to limit speech, ideas, and opinions other than ideologically approved ones. We hear – case closed, the science is settled, alternative opinions are due to ignorance and other statements that no true intellectual in history would be comfortable with. This is dogma masquerading as intelligence and is dominant in today’s academic environment.

Politicians have latched on to this approach because it protects ideas with no depth or factual foundation, it helps to panic people and create a feeling of powerlessness, leading to more control over every aspect of our lives. A true intellectual will welcome debate, not criminalize those that hold different positions. We live in an age of deep ignorance lauded as the height of intellect, fantasy heralded as reality, and inflexible dogma held up as liberalism.

I have personally experienced this phenomena several time in discussion with liberal friends.  I have been in conversations where my more liberal friends are espousing some view on some topic be it the economy, fracking, healthcare, Global Warming, War of Terror, or whatever.  And in the course of the conversation, should you provide any evidence in support of a view contrary to their held views, it is summarily dismissed without discussion or further investigation.  Hardly an “intellectual” response.

A prime example of this is the issue of gun control.  Members of the anti-Second Amendment crowd, such  as Michael Bloomberg’s newly-repackaged “Every Town for Gun Safety” have repeatedly been caught red-handed lying and creating false narratives about gun violence.  And while tragic gun violence should be addressed, as a nation we never want to address the real issues  involved and instead simple want to ban a tool which the U.S. Constitution affirms and guarantees the American people the right to use.  Unfortunately like any tool, a gun can be used for both good and bad.

The truth is that the recent shooting at the Church in South Caroline is a prime example of why stricter gun laws do not work.  Especially if, as Vice-President Joe Biden admitted on national television in the last election, the federal government doesn’t have time to enforce the gun laws already on the books.  The shooter in this case already could not legally own or buy a gun because of a previous felony drug conviction and the family has already admitted, and then later recanted the statement, that the boy’s father bought the gun for him on his 21st birthday.  This would already be a felony under federal law and punishable by up to 10 years imprisonment (perhaps this is why they recanted the earlier statement).  How would a stricter gun lay have prevented this?  Explain it to me please.

Also the church was a “gun free” zone, so the shooter knew he was safe to carry out his plan with little chance of anyone stopping him.  There is another recent and rather similar case in which a woman with a concealed carry permit and a hand gun stopped a shooter in his tracks in her church and saved the lives of many of her fellow parishioners.  Bet you won’t hear about that in the left-wing news.

More to the point, however, is that if you bring up the facts that statistics clearly prove states and cities that allow concealed carry permits all see measurable and significant reductions in violent crime, liberals summarily dismiss that as NRA propaganda that bears no further discussion.  They totally ignore the fact that the NRA gets its statistics from the FBI and, dare I say it, the former Attorney General Eric Holder’s Department of Justice.  That is because their “pseudo intellectualism” is driven by blind ideology and it can suffer no dissent.  It is a victimization-based, revenge-driven ideology that plays well to people with bumper slogan mentalities and it is an ideology that does not bode well for the success of Freedom, Liberty, Prosperity, and American Exceptionalism!

Victimization is the root value of liberal Identity Politics

Darren:

An interesting perspective and one I agree with. Liberals tend to be the unhappiest and angriest people! They make great victims and revel in their (and other’s) victim-hood! And they want us all to be just like them!

It turns out she altered her looks and biography to create a new persona. In her new identity, she fought on behalf of African Americans who were victims of the white power structure.

And then we learned something new about Ms. Dolezal. As a college student at the predominantly black Howard University, the then publicly white Rachel Moore (as she was known in 2002) sued the university for discriminating against her because SHE WAS WHITE.

Yes, truth sometimes seems stranger than fiction.

But there is nothing strange about it. Ms. Moore/Dolezal is a professional victim.

Victimization is the root value of liberal identity politics, as embraced and nurtured by the Democratic Party.
