“The reality I have observed over and over again in welfare offices and urban classrooms across New York and elsewhere is so dissimilar from that presented in the mainstream media that I sometimes wonder whether their reporters and I occupy the same universe.”
— Heather MacDonald “The Burden of Bad Ideas: How Modern Intellectuals Misshape Our Society”
“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”
—Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)
Hmm—that last bit bears repeating. “When the government fears the people, there is liberty.” Actually, that’s worth shouting, “WHEN THE GOVERNMENT FEARS THE PEOPLE, THERE IS LIBERTY!”
A few weeks ago, a reader suggested that I read Heather MacDonald’s book “The Burden of Bad Ideas.” I have, and it has solidified my suspicion that liberals are (not to put too fine a point on it), nuts.
That’s not an ad hominem attack, but merely an expository statement, on a par with saying “The sky is blue.”
What else can you call a person who insists on willfully burning down the “house” they live in, and promoting social chaos, while smugly declaring their moral superiority with a self-satisfied smirk, as they proudly hold out a lit match and an empty gas can? They are certifiably insane—or at best, delusional.
And if liberals are nuts, then the Far Left are padded-cell sociopaths.
(A short aside before going any farther: In my last article (about Guadalcanal) I failed to mention that all those Marines landing at once, on one part of the island, did not cause the island to capsize, and sink. I bring this up, in order to put Democratic Congressman Johnson’s (D-GA) mind at ease. As you may recall, he was recently distressed by the idea of the island of Guam flipping over, due to a similar influx of Marines landing there). I believe that the officer who replied to Johnson’s query about Guam, should receive some sort of medal for his quick reply [“Uh, we don’t anticipate that”], and his stoic ability to keep a straight face). (Guam response)
Uber-liberals may be insufferable twits, and crazy, but they are deviously clever at subterfuge, lying, and obfuscation. Oh, and they love getting and spending OPM (Other People’s Money). Boy, do they ever.
They are also masters at co-opting language and symbols (I can remember when a rainbow represented God’s covenant to Noah).
Heck, they even stole the word “liberal” from us. Once upon a time, it used to refer to being “worthy of a free man,” and meant “liberation from top-down governmental control.”
They certainly have been busy little bees, or more appropriately, ravenous little termites—hungrily nibbling away at America’s foundation, and framework, for over a century.
But they don’t intend on just destroying America as a free republic. Oh my no, they have great plans in store for the United States. You saw how quickly the Apollo Alliance had the “Stimulus Bill” ready to go? (Link)
Well, they have a LOT of equally nifty, “helpful,” social engineering plans on hand, ready and waiting to be shoved down our throats. (Link)
So I ask you, how many more segments of America’s freedom need to be destroyed, how many more tyrannical plans need to be implemented? How much more erosion of our freedom must occur, before “we the people” say ENOUGH! (Link)
The only reason—and I mean the ONLY reason—why I haven’t advocated a march on Washington to take back our “house,” is because Washington D.C. is the hub of the federal government. As such, it is heavily populated by unpatriotic, anti-American, globalists and Progressives. (Link)
These traitorous weasels have infiltrated the top echelons of our military, Congress, and every federal department and agency, and they will not hesitate to dispose of anyone that they consider a threat to their status as Power Elites. Any march on Washington that gives even a hint of revolution, will be met with Draconian force.
That is the only reason why I suggest waiting for the November elections—otherwise, I would be shouting from the rooftops “To arms, to arms! Enough talk! Time for action!”
It may yet come to that—you had better believe it, and be ready for it.
Marxist, Fascist, New World Order weasels
Just as the Marxist/Fascist/NWO weasels infiltrated the echelons of government with circles of similarly minded colleagues, and had cells within those circles. I can only hope that American patriots have similar circles and cells in place, and will strike at an opportune time. (Link)
A preemptive surgical strike would be best, and would limit the amount of damage done to America. Which is not to say that there won’t be damage (further damage), just that, hopefully, it’ll be minimal.
There’s already been damage done to the United States—considerable damage. It’s a question of staunching the flow, and triaging the issues facing America. (Link)
Should we allow the bleeding to grow worse, while we wait for November? Good question. (Link)
Time will tell. With God’s grace, we will make it to, and through, the November elections without martial law, a mortal blow to America, or widespread violence. And if not—well, I hope you’re prepared.
The insidious phenomenon of RINOs
The insidious phenomenon of RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) is one that must be addressed—with vigor. (Link)
Any list of “Republican Lite” RINOs must include: John McCain (R-AZ), Lindsay Graham (R-SC), Olympia Snowe (R-ME), and…well, there are just so many, that they really deserve an article of their own, don’t they?
These RINOs include Progressives in sheep’s clothing, NWO globalists, and greedy, venal, politicos. Yeah, they definitely deserve an article of their own. (Link)
And I mustn’t forget to mention RNC (Republican National Committee) chairman, Michael Steele—Mr. “Big Tent” himself. (Link)
Michael Steele, Maurice Strong, Aspen Institute
Mr. Steele is a member of Maurice Strong’s Aspen Institute. You remember Maurice—he’s the one who chaired the UN’s Earth Summit at Rio de Janeiro in 1992. The one where President Bush (#1) signed the US onboard for Agenda-21, and came back to the US all excited about the New World Order finally getting cranked up. (Link) (Link)
(I might mention here that I’m not especially fond of “UN blue” power ties, or the “UN blue” badges that the US Army sports on its berets these days. If you consider these to be “coincidental flukes,” then I have a bridge to sell you). (Link)
In closing, I’d like to suggest that a fresh, and firmer, grasp of what it means to be a “conservative” is in order.
If you’re anything like me, then you have an ever-growing backlog of “must read” books. Any book that isolates, condenses, and illuminates, numerous other books, so that you don’t have to slog through them all, is a Godsend.
Benjamin Wiker has written not just one, but two, such books—“10 Books That Every Conservative Must Read : Plus Four Not to Miss and One Imposter,” and “10 Books That Screwed Up the World: And Five Others That Didn’t Help.”
If you wish to know what it truly means to be a conservative, then the former book is indeed a “must read.”
Wiker makes the puissant observation that “conservatism is a fundamental way of understanding human nature and its place in the cosmos,” (as is Liberalism).
It behooves Constitutional conservatives to be familiar with both the conservative, and liberal, “fundamental ways” of looking at reality.
Knowing the content of both of these books by Wiker, will go a long way toward helping “we the people” follow, and benefit from, Sun Tzu’s sage maxim: “Know your enemy, and know yourself, and you can fight a hundred battles without disaster.”
