Comedian ‘Not Sorry’ for Pearl Harbor Joke on NBC’s New Year’s Eve Special

oped: Being a Vn era veteran and having relatives who served both in Korea and WWII I am not offended by a lil silly humor [Not Gross-Nasty jabs] is past due time people realize that humor is just that humor...and in this particular case it was funny...hell my kids call me the old fart...and I always respond yeppers older than dirt and have forgotten more than ya will ever know ! Another biggie that really gets me ticked off are those who overreact and feign being offended [Al Sharpton~Jesse Jackson et al]...Good God almighty sure am glad I grew up during Happy Days when we just joked back or smiling said "Sticks and Stones may break my bones...but names will never hurt me"

Comedian Natasha Leggero says she isn’t sorry for a joke she made about Pearl Harbor veterans during NBC’s “New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly.”
“I wish I could apologize, but do you really want another insincere apology that you know is just an attempt at damage control and not a real admission of guilt? Let me just try instead to be honest,” Leggero said on her Tumblr Friday. “I’m not sorry. I don’t think the amazing courage of American veterans and specifically those who survived Pearl Harbor is in any way diminished by a comedian making a joke about dentures on television.”
NBC declined to comment Friday.
Leggero, Jane Lynch and Anthony Anderson were joking about a recent tweet by SpaghettiOs that many saw as an attempt to cash in on Pearl Harbor Day: “Take a moment to remember #PearlHarbor with us,” the canned food tweeted.
Quipped Lynch: “I’m offended because they were referring to SpaghettiOs as pasta.” 

Added Leggero: “It sucks that the only survivors of Pearl Harbor are being mocked by the only food they can still chew.”
Some viewers expressed their offense on Twitter. Others contacted Leggero with threats. She wrote Friday that she was subjected to “creatively misspelled death threats, rape fantasies, and most of all repeated use of the the C word.”
“In the past few days I have been called a cunt so much I felt like I was in a British pub rooting for the wrong soccer team,” she wrote.
But she added that she didn’t see any point in apologizing.
“Do we really believe that the people who fought and defended our freedom against Nazis and the Axis powers will find a joke about SpaghettiOs too much to bear? Sorry, I have more respect for Veterans than to think their honor can be impugned by a glamorous, charming comedian in a fur hat,” she said, describing her New Year’s outfit. 

“On the one hand you have me, making a joke about how old people can’t chew tough foods very well,” she said. “On the other hand you have Veterans who receive inadequate care upon their return from active duty, rampant sexual assault against female soldiers, staggering rates of suicide, traumatic brain injury, PTSD, substance abuse and depression among soldiers and political gridlock that prevents these problems from getting solved quickly.”
“Where do you think your outrage and action would be better served, calling me a cunt or doing something about the above problems?”
Leggero concluded with a message to vets: “I love you. I truly hope you know that.”
And she had a message for SpaghettiOs: “Let’s do lunch.”  

Ripping Off the “Progressive” Mask

In a column on the “remarkable lives” of some people who passed away in 2013, Republican strategist Karl Rove writes that British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, in concert with Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush and Pope John Paul II, “transformed the world.” He’s right that Reagan, Bush, Thatcher, and the Pope did transform the world. In saying that Thatcher stood up to Soviet communism, however, he neglected to mention that the Soviet Communists fought back, attempting to assassinate Pope John Paul II. The Soviets lied about their involvement in this plot.
Referring to Nelson Mandela, Rove says he “spent 26 years in prison before emerging to end apartheid and serve as the first president of a multiracial South African democracy.” However, Mandela’s debt to Soviet communism, which armed his movement, went unmentioned in Rove’s Wall Street Journal column. Rove also failed to note that the communists who run South Africa today counted Mandela as one of their own. The “democratic” South Africa of today is effectively a one-party state, and the white minority is under siege and facing genocide.
Rove writes that Mandela went “on trial for his life,” neglecting to mention that he was convicted of terrorism and could have been hanged for his crimes. Instead, Mandela received a prison sentence. The white government was actually quite lenient and offered to release him if he would renounce violence and terrorism. He never did. His terrorism cost innocent lives.

Karl Rove should know better, and probably does. He apparently has his own reasons for shading the truth. Those reasons include appearing to be “moderate” in one’s public comments and accepting certain myths about public figures. That means, in Mandela’s case, accepting his false claim that he never joined the Communist Party of South Africa.
It is a sad fact that telling a lie these days has become more convenient than telling the truth. This is a terrible commentary on those with access to our major media.
Consider the coverage of the inauguration of Bill de Blasio as New York City’s mayor. The term “progressive” is used in most accounts to describe him and his backers. De Blasio accepts that term. Yet, by any objective measure, he is a dedicated Marxist, and has been for most of his life. For example, he never disavowed his support for the communist Sandinistas in Nicaragua. He claims to have honeymooned in communist Cuba, when such a trip was illegal. His wife was a member of a Marxist collective.

As if to demonstrate that his views haven’t changed, one of de Blasio’s inauguration speakers was the entertainer Harry Belafonte, who performed at a “concert for peace” in communist East Germany in 1983. He claims he did not join the Communist Party USA, but acknowledges in his book My Song: A Memoir that he used to attend lectures in 1947 at the Jefferson School in New York City. He says the Jefferson School “openly billed itself as an institute of Marxist thought affiliated with the American Communist party.” He says he heard such speakers as I.F. Stone, the so-called “independent journalist” later unmasked as a Soviet intelligence agent.
At the time he attended lectures at the Jefferson School, Russia “seemed to be leading the way” internationally in achieving a “classless society,” Belafonte writes in his book.
Belafonte also endorsed and raised money for Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren when she was running for that office. The Massachusetts GOP tried to make that an issue, but the media paid no attention.
When it comes to children, the truth has to be concealed as well. Indeed, this target audience has to be “educated” intensively to become young recruits to the “progressive” movement.
Consider that a firm called Bluewater Productions has released a new “tribute comic book biography” on Nelson Mandela, insisting on page nine that Mandela was “never a communist himself” but only worked with the communists. The fact is that the South African Communist Party and the African National Congress have both acknowledged his membership on the SACP’s central committee. Mandela lied about it all his life.

Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis calls the comic book “a great tool for kids to read about him in a different medium.” He adds that, “Our biography comic books are now taught in schools and libraries for students and reluctant readers.”
I asked Davis why the comic book lies about Mandela’s membership in the Communist Party. He told me, “I will check with the writer on that and get back to you on it.” That was over two weeks ago. Clearly, they have no justification for this striking omission.
It would seem to be important for our young people to understand the role that communism played, and continues to play, in national and world events. After all, this philosophy killed more than 100 million people, made millions more economically destitute, and continues to deny freedom to more than one billion people worldwide.
If used in schools and libraries, this comic book will deceive “students and reluctant readers” about how communism has come to power in South Africa. What purpose is served by that? It will enable the same forces to make even more gains around the world, including in the United States, by operating as “progressives.”
Part of Rove’s column was devoted to remembering two conservative businessmen, Bob Perry and Harold Simmons, who died in 2013 and were “passionate about their state and country and were generous donors to conservative candidates and causes, including American Crossroads.”
Rove is referring to his own political campaign organization, which refused to call President Obama a Marxist when buying millions of dollars of advertising against him during the 2012 presidential campaign. As a result, Obama and the George Soros-funded “progressives” won.

Rove says about Perry and Simmons, “These two self-made men never forgot that from those to whom much is given, much is required.” But the $300 million that went to Rove in 2012 was mostly wasted.
What the country desperately needs are donors willing to underwrite the organizations that are not afraid to tell the truth about the dangers we face. Being polite and politically correct when the survival of our nation’s democratic institutions and traditional values are at stake is nothing less than national suicide.
The “progressives” have to be exposed as the hard-core Marxists they are.

Betraying Our Own

Flickr Creative Commons Gregory Jordan Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall pencil name

They are extraordinary Americans. It is said that they sign a blank check to their country and their countrymen pledging that they will give their all, up to and including their lives, to defend the American way of life and their fellow Americans. They are the men and women who are currently serving or have previously served in the armed forces of the United States. They take an oath to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, both foreign and domestic,” and they always live by that oath.
This blank check is readily accepted by our government and by other Americans who send these selfless individuals off to fight and die for our nation and its freedoms. Many of them have made the ultimate sacrifice and died in battle, while many others have returned home with shattered bodies and emotional scars. Unfortunately, they have often returned home to betrayal by some of their fellow Americans and particularly by their own government.
The Americans who fought in World War II returned home as heroes and rightfully so; yet just a few years later, when members of the military fought in Korea and over 50,000 died, the survivors were virtually ignored when they came home to the point that Korea is often referred to as the forgotten war.

As for the Americans who served in Vietnam, they often were insulted, spat on, and physically attacked by people in their own country who supposedly believed in peace. To make it worse, many in the mainstream media actively supported the enemy and lied about what was really happening in Vietnam. To this day, children are taught in school that the U.S. military lost the war in Vietnam.
That is a blatant lie; American soldiers never lost a battle during that war. The victory was given to the enemy by a vote of the U.S. Congress that cut off military support to the South Vietnamese army and allowed the communists to launch a new and successful invasion.
Fortunately, the American people as a whole are much more grateful to the men and women who are fighting the war on terrorism; but the same cannot be said about the mainstream news media and the government. The media ignores the sacrifices and victories of our soldiers and often seems to support our enemies with insane reporting in the name of political correctness.

As for our government, we have a President of the United States, an administration, and a Congress that seems intent on breaking the morale of our soldiers and destroying their capability of protecting our nation. Their actions support the fact that there is an all-out assault on both our active duty military and our veterans. The elements of this assault consist of:
  1.  The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a bulletin to all police agencies in 2009 naming all military veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan as potential domestic terrorists.
  2.  Senator Dianne Feinstein declares that all veterans have PTSD and are therefore mentally ill and should not be allowed to own firearms.
  3.  The Veterans Administration in 2009 begins declaring veterans with physical disabilities, minor PTSD, past depression, or who even allow their spouses to pay the family bills as mental defectives incompetent to handle their own financial affairs and forbidding them from owning, purchasing, or possessing firearms. This process is accelerating.
  4.  Obama unilaterally cuts billions of dollars from our military budget without approval of Congress.
  5.  Congress passes legislation authorizing sequestration leading to massive cuts in the military readiness of the United States, and putting us in a position of being incapable of defending our national interests around the world.
  6.  Our military capabilities are being cut in half, and we have lost respect around the world. The ridiculous politically correct rules of engagement imposed on our fighting men and women in combat have cost countless American lives.
  7.   High ranking officers in the military who disagree with these policies of the Administration are being purged, and enlisted personnel who utilize their right to free speech to express their concerns are being court martialed and dishonorably discharged.
  8.  The Obama administration has also launched an attack on the very foundation of the success of our military, the profound religious beliefs of most of our troops.  Members of the military are being prohibited from practicing their religion even to the point of being denied the right to have bibles in their workplace, mentioning Christmas, or expressing their opposition to radical Islam. Chaplains are having their sermons and even prayers censored to make sure they are politically correct.
  9.  The Veterans Administration that is supposed to represent the interests of our military heroes has slowed down the process of filing claims for benefits to the point where veterans are waiting for months and even years to have their claims processed. In addition, when veterans go to the VA, they are being asked if they own firearms, if they have ever been depressed, and if their spouses handle the family finances. Then this information is being used to declare them incompetent and deny them their Constitutional rights under the 5th and 2nd Amendments.
  10.  During both the 2010 and 2012 election cycles, the Obama administration through the Attorney General of the United States, Eric Holder, actively encouraged Secretaries of State around the country to violate Federal law by failing to timely mail out absentee ballots to active duty military personnel. As a result, hundreds of thousands of military votes were never counted, denying our heroes a basic American right.
  11.  While civilian employees of the Obama administration get pay raises, members of the military and veterans are seeing their pay and benefits cut with the Secretary of Defense promising more cuts to come.
  12.  Military families are also being affected in other ways. Chuck Hagel wants to close commissaries at U. S. bases, forcing military families to purchase their groceries from civilian stores where they will pay up to 30% more. In addition, thousands of military spouses work at these commissaries to supplement the family income. They will be losing their jobs.  
  13. I could go on with this list because it just scratches the surface. Our military members and our veterans are being hammered by the government they have fought for. They are being denied the medical care they were promised, the respect they are due, and ultimately the constitutional rights they have been defending. Enough is enough; if we allow our military and veterans to be treated this way, how can we expect the government not to turn on all of us?

Al Qaeda Takes Over Fallujah

[ANOTHER Obama Success Story – Flag of Al-Qaeda Flies Over Fallujah]
Hey remember the 2012 campaign when President Obama claimed that al Qaeda was on the run? They didn’t get the memo. The terrorists have taken over Falluja, Iraq.
A rejuvenated al-Qaeda-affiliated force asserted control over the western Iraqi city of Fallujah on Friday, raising its flag over government buildings and declaring an Islamic state in one of the most crucial areas that U.S. troops fought to pacify before withdrawing from Iraq two years ago.
The capture of Fallujah came amid an explosion of violence across the western desert province of Anbar in which local tribes, Iraqi security forces and al-Qaeda-affiliated militants have been fighting one another for days in a confusingly chaotic three-way war.
Elsewhere in the province, local tribal militias claimed they were gaining ground against the al-Qaeda militants who surged into urban areas from their desert strongholds this week after clashes erupted between local residents and the Iraqi security forces.
In Fallujah, where Marines fought the bloodiest battle of the Iraq war in 2004, the militants appeared to have the upper hand, underscoring the extent to which the Iraqi security forces have struggled to sustain the gains made by U.S. troops before they withdrew in December 2011. (Read More)
So many American lives lost. So much money spent. All so Iraq could turn into an Islamic state under the leadership of Barack Obama.

A Warning To John Boehner / Paul Ryan Regarding Amnesty

US President Barack Obama (R) and Republ

Listening to John Boehner and Paul Ryan, the leaders of the Republican’s headlong dash to grant millions of illegal aliens amnesty, leads to the inescapable conclusion that either they are stupid, or they believe we are stupid.
They talk to us as if we are children. They  insist that the provisions of their “tough new laws” on immigration will insure that illegal aliens who want to become legal American citizens  must learn English, pay a fine, go to the end of the line (whatever “end of the line” means), and be barred from voting for ten years. They also promise that our borders will be shut down, and no new illegal aliens will be able to sneak under our fences. They know this will happen because they will extract a promise from Barack Obama, a proved serial liar, that this will happen.
In 2012, when the retention of illegal aliens in our country was only a “good thing” for Democrats and not the desperately important foundation for their plans to hold on to power, Barack Obama oversaw the deportation of just .2% of the estimated 11.7 million illegal aliens using up our vital resources.

Now that it has become clear that the Democrats are facing an Election Day bloodbath because of Obamacare, keeping these people here so they can become reliable Democrat voters is the only chance they have to continue ruling us. Curiously, neither Boehner nor Ryan seems to understand this reality.
Just 133,551 illegal aliens were arrested and deported once they had escaped the border areas where they snuck in to our country. Nevertheless, the closer one looks at this number, the faster it falls. More than 8 in 10 of Obama’s guests who were deported were kicked out because they were apprehended committing a crime. They were drunk drivers, robbers, rapists, drug users, and drug dealers.  In reality, only about 20,000 illegal aliens of the 11.7 million, parked here for future use by the Democrats, were deported for being here illegally.
The next time the House Republicans talk about exacting a promise from Obama to close the borders, keep these numbers in mind.

The Plantation Called New York City

oped: The question begs ...Why does the Department of Sanitation have a Chaplin?...Strange to say the least!

On January 1, 2014, a Sanitation Department chaplain, Reverend Fred Lucas of the Brooklyn Community Church, startled listeners when he compared New York to a “plantation” during his invocation at Mayor de Blasio’s inauguration:

Why Do Women Become Human Bombs For Islam?

Reports of a female suicide bomber in Russia beg the question:  Why would a woman in a male-dominated religion be willing to kill herself for a religion that portends to send men to Paradise to be with a harem of virgin women?

Nazi Survivor’s Warning To America: ‘Keep Your Guns & Buy More Guns’

Katie Worthman
Washington, DC --( We may well have mentioned about Katie Worthman before but either way – this is something that all need to see and take on board.
Here is an Austrian born lady who survived the Hitler period and has given talks about her experiences, and includes warnings.
A close corollary is to be found within our book offer “Gun Control in the Third Reich“.
The thrust of her experiences is that everything she observed began slowly and seemingly for understandable reasons initially, and yet, over time the noose was tightened until the removal of freedoms became absolute.
We might call this “control by stealth – or the ‘drip-drip-drip’ approach of incrementalism. The message and warning given is one not to be ignored as we see uncomfortable parallels — the lady speaks in a short video clip which it is believed is part of a much longer speech.

Katie Worthman was born in Austria, and lived there for seven years under Hitlers brutal regime, and after world war II, she also lived three years under Soviet communist occupation. Needless to say, but Mrs. Worthman is someone who has an acute awareness of how media distorts things and tyranny comes to power. Mrs. Worthman, not only says that the media was wrong about how Hitler came to power, but she says that “In the beginning, Hitler didn’t look like, or talk like a monster at all. He talked like an American politician.”
She says that the story of Hitler overthrowing governments and people in order to come to power just simply isn’t true, but rather the Austrian people elected Hitler with 98% of the vote at the ballot box. Mrs. Worthman then goes on to say that the Austrian people had guns, but the government began to say that they were dangerous, so they began to implement gun registration. Then she said this was followed by turning in their weapons to the police station in order to cut down on crime, and if citizens didn’t… there would be capital punishment.
Mrs. Worthman says that the dictatorship, “didn’t happen over night, but it took 5 years, gradually, little by little, to escalate to a dictatorship.”
She then goes on to say that, “When the people fear the government, that’s tyranny, but when the government fears the people, that’s liberty.”
As a Nazi survivor, what is her advice to us… “Keep your guns, keep your guns and buy more guns.”

Phil Everly of the Everly Brothers passed away this evening...:(

Phil Everly attends the Buddy Holly Hollywood Walk Of Fame Induction Ceremony in Hollywood, California September 7, 2011

oped: The Everly Brothers hands down were the best of the best in Harmony and Vocales...they rate right up there with Buddy Holly and the Crickets for setting the tone and showing the way for all the groups that followed.
This beautiful clip of the Everly Brothers was filmed on their UK tour in 1960 with Buddy Holly's Crickets as the backup band, less than a year and half after the plane crash that took Holly's life. The Reelin' In The Years library contains hours of iconic performances from many of the great artists of the 50s, including Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Gene Vincent, the Platters, the Big Bopper and many more.


Los Angeles (AFP) - Singer Phil Everly of the famed Everly Brothers has died, his widow told The Los Angeles. He was 74.
Everly passed away Friday in the Californian city of Burbank due to complications from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Patti Everly told the newspaper.
"We are absolutely heartbroken," she said, noting her husband's disease was caused by cigarette smoking. "He fought long and hard."
Together with his brother Don, who survives him, Everly rose to fame in the late 1950s and 1960s for smash hits such as "Wake Up Little Susie," "All I Have to Do is Dream" and "Bye Bye Love."
The duo, who influenced The Beatles as well as Simon and Garfunkel, were known for their close-harmony singing. 

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, into which the Everly Brothers were inducted in 1986, described their harmonies as "one of the musical treasures of the 1950s and a major influence on the music of the 1960s."
In 1957, the Everly Brothers signed their first record deal and soon after produced hits that spawned the genres of pop, rock and country. They were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001.
Tributes poured in soon after word of Everly's death surfaced.
"Rest in peace Phil Everly. You guys brought us a lot of pleasure back in the day," rock and country singer-songwriter Charlie Daniels tweeted.
Commenting as a winter snowstorm hit the northeast United States, actor and musician John Gallagher Jr. said: "This cold night just got colder. RIP Phil Everly. The Everly Brothers Greatest Hits was my first CD as a kid and will always be a favorite." 

"They had that sibling sound," said Linda Ronstadt, who recorded one of the biggest hits of her career in 1975 with her interpretation of Everly's "When Will I Be Loved."
"The information of your DNA is carried in your voice, and you can get a sound (with family) that you never get with someone who's not blood-related to you," she told the Times.
"And they were both such good singers -- they were one of the foundations, one of the cornerstones of the new rock 'n' roll sound."
According to a Rolling Stone biography of the legendary performers -- hailed as "the most important vocal duo in rock" by the magazine -- Phil and his younger brother Don were the children of Midwestern country stars Ike and Margaret Everly and performed on the family radio show while growing up.
As teenagers, they headed for Nashville, Tennessee, and began their stellar career.
In addition to his wife and brother, Everly is survived by their mother, Margaret, sons Jason and Chris, and two granddaughters.
The Times said funeral services would be private. 

Obama Dooms Seniors To Ravages Of Aging


On Oct. 1, 2012 the Obama administration started awarding bonus points to hospitals that spend the least on elderly patients. It will result in fewer knee replacements, hip replacements, angioplasty, bypass surgery, and cataract operations.
These are the five procedures that have transformed aging for older Americans. They used to languish in wheelchairs and nursing homes due to arthritis, cataracts, and heart disease. Now they lead active lives.
But the Obama administration is undoing that progress. By cutting $716 billion from future Medicare funding over the next decade and rewarding the hospitals that spend the least on seniors, the Obama health law will make these procedures hard to get and less safe.

The Obama health law creates two new entitlements for people under age 65 – subsidies to buy private health plans and a vast expansion of Medicaid. More than half the cost of these entitlements is paid for by cutting what hospitals, doctors, hospice care, home care, and Advantage plans are paid to care for seniors.
Just Take Pill
Astoundingly, doctors will be paid less to treat a senior than to treat someone on Medicaid, and only about one-third of what a doctor will be paid to treat a patient with private insurance.
On July 13, 2011, Richard Foster, chief actuary for Medicare, warned Congress that seniors will have difficulty finding doctors and hospitals to accept Medicare. Doctors who do continue to take it will not want to spend time doing procedures such as knee replacements when the pay is so low. Yet the law bars them from providing care their patients need for an extra fee. You’re trapped.

President Obama seems to think that too many seniors are getting these procedures. At a town hall debate in 2009, he told a woman “maybe you’re better off not having the surgery but taking the painkiller.”
Science proves that the president is wrong. Knee replacements, for example, not only relieve pain but also save lives. Seniors with severe osteoarthritis who opt for knee replacement are less apt to succumb to heart failure and have a 50% higher chance of being alive five years later than arthritic seniors who don’t undergo the procedure, according to peer-reviewed scientific research.
Yet Foster warned Congress that 15% of hospitals may stop treating seniors once the Obama-Care cuts go into effect. The rest will have to lower the standard of care. Hospitals will have $247 billion less over the next decade to care for the same number of seniors as if the health law had not been enacted.
Obama claims his Medicare cuts will knock out waste and excessive profits. Untrue. Medicare already pays hospitals less than the actual cost of caring for a senior, on average 91 cents for every dollar of care. No profit there. Pushing down rates will force hospitals to spread nursing staff thinner.
Elderly patients will have a worse chance of surviving their stay and going home. When Medicare reduced payment rates to hospitals as part of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997, hospitals incurring the largest cuts laid off nurses.

Rewarding Skimpy Care
Eventually, patients at these hospitals had a 6% to 8% worse chance of surviving a heart attack, according to a National Bureau of Economic Research report (March 2011).
In addition to the across-the-board cuts, the Obama administration will now impose a new measure on hospitals: “Medicare spending per beneficiary.” Hospitals that spend the least on seniors get bonus points, and higher-spending hospitals get demerits.
Hospitals will even be penalized for care consumed up to 30 days after patients are discharged, for example, for outpatient physical therapy following a hip or knee replacement.
There are ways to control Medicare spending, such as inching up the eligibility age or asking well-off seniors to pay more. Forcing hospitals to skimp on care is deadly.
Research sponsored by the National Institute on Aging (Annals of Internal Medicine, February 2011) shows that heart attack patients at the lowest-spending hospitals are 19% more likely to die than patients of the same age at higher-spending hospitals. Yet the Obama health law pushes all hospitals to imitate the lowest spending ones.
Ignore the political rhetoric and look at the scientific evidence. The Medicare cuts in the Obama health law will end Medicare as we’ve known it and doom seniors to painful aging and shorter lives.

Exposed: Hillary Clinton’s Sex Scandals

Barack Obama has created a massive surveillance state, sicking his attack dog the NSA to spy on everyday Americans—presumably to use this information to punish his enemies.
And who will more than likely get the keys to the kingdom if the radical (that is, socialist) Democrats get their way? The Radical-in-Chief Barack Obama’s kindred spirit: Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Except it looks like Hillary Clinton is already using the NSA to punish her enemies.

Enter Clinton’s massive State Department sex scandals—including her alleged paramour, Muslim Brotherhood double agent Huma Abedin—and you have a perfect job for NSA spooks: disappearing emails, lawyers’ offices being broken into to steal documents exposing Clinton’s sex scandals—including charges of pedophilia—just to mention a few of the sexual peccadilloes being shoved down the memory hole more than likely with the help of the NSA.
Watch Western Center for Journalism’s exclusive video to find out how the Benghazi Bimbo, “What Difference Does it Make” Hillary Rodham Clinton, is using the NSA to punish her enemies.

Things Go From Bad To Worse As UAW’s General Shoots New Wife

General Holiefield - Townhall
Just when UAW Vice President General Holiefield probably thought things couldn’t get any worse, he goes and accidentally shoots his new wife.
Just two days before the New Year, Monday night’s accident marks what must have been a tough two years for the UAW’s vice president in charge of the union’s Chrysler Division.
In 2011, General Holifield, was arrested in a domestic ‘incident’ involving his now-ex wife.
Though he wasn’t formally charged, his then-wife filed a motion for a protective order.
Following his divorce, Holiefield wasted no time remarrying high-profile photographer Monica Morgan, Monday night’s apparent shooting victim.
"UAW Vice President, 60-year-old General Holiefield was showing how to clean his .45 caliber Desert Eagle semi-automatic handgun when it went off.
The shot hit his wife in the back. She is Monica Morgan, famous in her own right as a world renowned photographer. 7 Action News talked with her earlier this month with the death of Nelson Mandella."

In October, despite rumors that he was being dismissed from the UAW, Holiefield announced his impending retirement in June.
Since he cannot technically be fired by the UAW (he must be voted out), in the interim before his June retirement, the UAW is currently scrambling to rebuild trust among Chrysler workers who apparently feel Holiefield did not fight for them enough.
Although she is expected to survive and prosecutors are still determining whether or not to charge him for Monday night’s shooting, for General Holiefield (and the UAW), 2014 probably couldn’t have arrived soon enough.
“Truth isn’t mean. It’s truth.”

Constitutional Law Professor Offers Glimpse Into Progressive Mind-Set: White People Are The Problem

[Professor Gloria J. Browne-Marshall  blames ‘Southern White Radicals’ for Obamacare Debacle]
The progressive formula is easy: Minorities must always be considered victims and all of the Nation’s problems are caused by white, often Southern, radical conservatives.
An essay written late last month by Gloria J. Browne-Marshall, a Constitutional law professor at John Jay College in New York, is littered with examples of the flawed logic progressives often employ to lay blame for the left’s political failings on white conservatives. It also provides a sound study into the methods progressives use to absolve minorities of even the most grotesque actions; because, in the progressive view, many crimes committed by minorities are the simple result of hundreds of years of oppression by whites.
Browne-Marshall’s essay, “2013: A Year of Racial Challenges,” plays apologist to African-American former police officer turned murderer Christopher Dorner, mourns the loss of Trayvon Martin whose untimely death is blamed by the professor on Stand Your Ground laws and racism, laments the lack of gun control which she blames for the killing of Chicago teenager Hadiya Pendleton and the children at Sandy Hook Elementary school, and blames “southern White radicals” for President Barack Obama’s disastrous Obamacare rollout.

Dorner’s outburst, Brown contends early in her essay, resulted from years of bullying by whites.
“Dorner claimed the abundance of racism he experienced on his job, and at all-White schools he attended, drove him to kill. Dorner allegedly took his own life when trapped by police,” she writes. “Some called Dorner insane others said a modern-day Nat Turner, referring to the leader of a Virginia slave rebellion in 1831. However, the possibility racism was a core issue in this case was disregarded.”
The professor goes on to suggest that Martin died because Zimmerman, a “White Latino,” was terrified at the sight of a young black man.
“Fear of Trayvon Martin, 17, an unarmed African-American teenager led George Zimmerman, 28, a White Latino, to walk free of murder charges. Zimmerman pled self-defense in the shooting death of Martin last year on a rainy night in a Florida subdivision,” the essay says. “An all-female jury believed him. Protesters used Trayvon Martin’s hooded sweatshirt and Skittles candy as symbols of racial injustice.”
In the first three paragraphs of her work (which, it should be noted, certainly does not exhibit the flow of content one might expect from a learned professor), Brown makes clear whom she blames for the Nation’s ills.

“In January, President Barack Obama began his second term. However, southern White radicals vowed to stop implementation of the Obama-care law leading one to wonder if Tea Party members would oppose affordable healthcare if it came from a nonBlack President.
“It was 150 years ago that Abraham Lincoln’s military order, the Emancipation Proclamation, ended slavery in those same rebellious southern States. Then, as the fight for freedom continued race-based criminal laws replaced slave laws.”
In conclusion, the Constitutional law professor seemingly believes that black people who go on shooting rampages do so because white people are racist, Stand Your Ground laws are some sort of sinister racial cleansing tool designed to give white people the power to shoot blacks, America needs more gun control and, poor design and dishonesty notwithstanding, Obama’s healthcare rollout was a disaster because white Americans hate having a black President.
She ends her work thusly, “This year ended with two events of note. The first was the passing of Nelson Mandela — World Leader, President, Political Prisoner, Freedom Fighter, Lawyer. The second one was a membership drive for the Elkton branch of the Ku Klux Klan.
“Both events remind a discouraged Black community that the price of freedom is vigilance.”

Death, Taxes, and Obamacare

Obama base turns against ObamaCare
Erick Erickson 
Democrats plan to make 2014 about the minimum wage. Several news reports suggest the party plans to coordinate with unions to get ballot initiatives going around the nation to raise the minimum wage. They think this will incentivize turn out for them in 2014. It is an admission against interest they think Obamacare is hurting them.
It is also foolhardy. Gay marriage initiatives drove Christian conservatives out to vote for President Bush and against gay marriage in 2004. Barack Obama is not on the ballot in 2014. There is no guarantee people will turn out to vote for the minimum wage and there is no guarantee, even if they did, that they’d also vote for a Democrat for Congress who will keep Obamacare.
As best the Democrats might try to change the subject, the horror stories about Obamacare will keep coming. Just last night on my radio show, a nurse from a local hospital called in. A patient showed up at her hospital emergency room on January 1st. His insurance had been cancelled so he went through the process of getting Obamacare. But it appeared he failed to complete the process. While the hospital tried to figure out where he needed to go and who could see him, he had a heart attack.

In Virginia, the UK’s Daily Mail interviewed patients who were turned away by hospitals because of their Obamacare related insurance snafus. And that’s just the start of a holiday week.
The Democrats are going to do their best to show as many anecdotes as possible favorable to Obamacare. But they have yet to reach a level of sign ups even equal to the number of people who’ve had their insurance cancelled. Still others, who will get Obamacare, will get increased out of pocket costs.
The Democrats have hoped people would rejoice at the subsidies. But now getting married will be more costly. Adding employees will be more costly. Having kids will be more costly. Don’t worry though. Young men now deemed adults at the age of 27 will get their pregnancies covered, even if they don’t think they can get pregnant.
About the only thing that can save the Democrats from this public poicy nightmare is John Boehner pushing amnesty forward. And that just might happen.

Attorneys General In 11 States: President’s Obamacare Actions ‘Flatly Illegal’

Attorneys General In 11 States: President’s Obamacare Actions ‘Flatly Illegal’
Following the disastrous rollout of President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare overhaul and subsequent public discontent over high prices and the loss of existing healthcare plans the President said would be unaffected, the White House has repeatedly tweaked “law of the land” Obamacare to assuage criticism. In a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, 11 U.S. attorneys general contend that the Administration’s actions are “flatly illegal under federal constitutional and statutory law.”
The Republican attorneys general contend that the President should have to go through Congress in order to tweak the law. The group specifically criticized Obama’s use of executive action to allow insurance providers to reinstate health plans deemed insufficient by Obamacare standards and canceled in an attempt to ease criticism from the millions of Americans who liked their plans and couldn’t keep them.

“We support allowing citizens to keep their health insurance coverage, but the only way to fix this problem-ridden law is to enact changes lawfully: through Congressional action,” the attorneys general said in the letter. “The illegal actions by this administration must stop.”
According to the group, the Administration is violating Supreme Court precedents set in the 1985 Heckler v. Chaney case by making unilateral changes to the law. In that case, justices ruled that some enforcement actions that accompany laws are subject to judicial review.
The attorneys general also referenced Obamacare security flaws as a major cause of concern, contending that the Administration failed to “propose and implement rigorous privacy standards for outreach personnel.” They also believe that HHS continues to “ignore the widespread public outcry over the security of consumers’ private information.”
West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey wrote the letter. Signatories include attorneys general from Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas and Virginia.

Cruz uses Dr. Evil to promote O-Care repeal

Indeed Barry Barack Soetoro Hussein Davis Obama or whatever his real name is~ is one confused Dude...yeppers really truly needs psychological intervention:

By Rebecca Shabad 

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is not giving up on his campaign to get rid of ObamaCare.
On Tuesday, he asked his followers on Twitter to retweet him if they think President Obama’s signature healthcare law should be repealed.
A meme of Dr. Evil from the Austin Powers movie series was posted in the tweet.
Cruz, a freshman senator and Tea Party member, has been leading the cause to repeal the 2010 law. Its insurance coverage took effect Wednesday for Americans who signed up and enrolled in state or federal exchanges by the Dec. 24 deadline.
The Texas senator is credited with luring Republican leaders in the House to join him in the effort to defund ObamaCare, which led to the 16-day government shutdown last October.

A New Year With the Same Problems

Erick Erickson
Having managed to work every day of my vacation, getting back into the swing of things isn’t really swinging. I hope you all had a Happy New Year.
As we cross over into 2014, there is not a lot that has changed these past couple of weeks. People will not fully feel the effects of Obamacare. The economy is still “recovering.” And New York has gone full Marxist.
Republicans are still cowards. The Chamber of Commerce has decided to fight in Republican Primaries against conservatives. But the polling for the Democrats continues to go down. And that’s the thing.
The Democrats have decided they’ll make 2014 about the minimum wage. It’s a Democratic mimicking of the GOP’s efforts in 2004 to put gay marriage initiatives on the ballot. Democrats think people will go to the polls to vote for them and for increased wages. I suspect they won’t be so successful.

People are about to feel the tax bite of Obamacare. The out of pocket costs for many are going to go up. Businesses are still going to make adjustments that hurt workers — and businesses affected by minimum wage increases will make even more adjustments. Democrats would have you believe that 2014 will not be about Obamacare. I happen to think they are right.
I think 2014 will first be about the disastrous Obama foreign policy coming back to bite America. And then it’ll be about Obamacare. I would not be surprised to see the Middle East implode and the Sea of Japan fall into turmoil. The catastrophic ramifications of both will draw American attention out of our preferred isolationism. On top of that, the economic drain from Obamacare will ripple through the economy.
I’d like to think that 2014 would be better than 2013. But I think we’re on a glide path to Gomorrah and only Jesus saves.
On the bright side, Ragnarok comes on February 22nd.
Happy New Year.

TLC Channel Strange Addictions...I'm a Living Doll

via: TLC

My Strange Addiction: I'm a Living Doll -- a Must-See, One-Hour Premiere 

 A new season of My Strange Addiction premieres on Wednesday, Jan. 1 with a special one-hour premiere. In I'm a Living Doll, meet Justin, Venus and Emily: three individuals who go to extreme physical and behavioral efforts to live as dolls.

See photos of Justin, Venus and Emily.
Despite criticism and concern from their families and friends, Justin and Emily are committed to transforming their bodies into doll-like forms. Venus, who's only 16, prides herself on a "dolly" appearance that comes naturally. Her mother works as her manager to promote Venus through photography, video and public appearances.
Justin does not work; rather, he earns money modeling and accepts plastic surgeries as gifts. He's had 115 procedures, including bicep implants and rhinoplasty. Justin has toyed with the idea of permanent eyeliner, and he's currently sculpting and building a custom six-pack implant. It will transform his body -- if he can find a doctor willing to put the implant in. He calls his lifestyle the ultimate thrill, and he's not sure he'll ever be done changing his appearance to match the aesthetic perfection of a doll.
While Emily has never had surgery, she's not opposed to the idea. For now, she achieves her doll-like appearance with special contact lenses, long wigs and a special wardrobe full of corsets. She's even begun eating smaller portions and avoiding the sun to maintain a small figure and porcelain complexion. Emily feels more confident dressed like a doll, though she finds it a challenge to convince her family and prospective employers that she should be taken seriously.
Venus sees her doll-like appearance as a natural blessing that's a huge career opportunity. Along with her mom Margaret, Venus creates popular YouTube videos and is pursuing a path as a doll model in Japan. While some may see her life as lonely -- Venus spends all her time working with her mother -- she's happy to be doing what she loves.
Will Justin, Emily and Venus find acceptance and success in their living doll lifestyles? Find out when My Strange Addiction: I'm a Living Doll premieres on Jan. 1, 9|8c, launching an all-new season of My Strange Addiction.

Trey Gowdy’s 5-minute takedown of The NY Times

A South Carolina GOP congressman took down The New York Times’ recent coverage of Benghazi in an epic five-minute rant Monday on Fox News’ “On The Record.”
In his opening salvo, U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy congratulated the “Grey Lady” for taking “15 months to figure out how to spell ‘Benghazi.’” The paper reported that the attack was prompted by an anti-Islamic video, a theory that has been disproved and discredited for over a year.
“In another 15 months, maybe their reporting will actually catch up with the truth,” Gowdy added.
After listing the major points The Times got wrong in its “exhaustive” investigative report, Gowdy asked the question many House Republicans have been asking: “Why were we even there? Why was Chris Stevens in Benghazi that night?”
The congressman suggested that The Times article was merely an attempt to re-write history and pave the way for a Hillary Clinton presidency.

“I want you to read it six times and tell me if you can tell who the secretary of state was when Benghazi happened,” he said. “Because her name wasn’t mentioned a single, solitary time in this exhaustive New York Times piece – not once.”
Watch the takedown below.

Iraq suffers worst year of violence since 2008

Iraqi security forces search the boot of a car at a checkpoint in Baghdad, on December 16, 2013

Baghdad (AFP) - Violence in Iraq surged in 2013 to its worst level in five years, figures released Wednesday showed, fuelled by discontent among the Sunni Arab minority and the civil war in neighbouring Syria.
Bombs tore through markets, cafes, football fields and mosques, militants assaulted prisons, police stations and other government facilities, and families were killed in their homes.
And while Iraqi security forces carried out widespread operations targeting militants, they have yet to curb the violence, and the mass arrests they sometimes make may ultimately contribute to the problem.
"One has to go back to 2008 to find comparable levels of violence," Iraq Body Count, a Britain-based NGO that tracks violence in Iraq, said in a statement.
"In 2008, however, that was a declining total from the much higher levels of 2006-2007, with the second half of 2008 less violent than the first," IBC said. 

"In 2013, the trend is in the opposite direction, with around two thirds of the deaths occurring in the second half of the year," it said.
"If current violence levels continue unabated throughout the coming year, then 2014 threatens to be as deadly as 2004, which saw the two sieges of Fallujah (by US forces) and Iraq’s insurgency take hold."
Death tolls vary widely, but all point to a sharp rise in violence.
IBC said it recorded 9,475 civilian deaths in Iraq in 2013, compared to 10,130 in 2008, while Iraqi government figures indicated 7,154 people died in 2013 violence, including security forces and militants, while 8,995 were killed in 2008.
Tolls for intervening years were much lower, sometimes less than half the 2013 figures.
The United Nations meanwhile said 7,818 civilians and police were killed in 2013, even more than the 6,787 in 2008. 

“This is a sad and terrible record which confirms once again the urgent need for the Iraqi authorities to address the roots of violence to curb this infernal circle,” UN envoy Nickolay Mladenov said in a statement.
In 2013, militants repeatedly targeted civilians but also hit targets that should have been highly secure.
In July, for instance, militants carried out coordinated assaults on the Abu Ghraib and Taji prisons near Baghdad, freeing hundreds of inmates and leaving dozens of people dead.
Tensions rising since 2012
Two main factors have fuelled the spike in violence, experts say. 

One is widespread discontent among Iraq's minority Sunni Arab community, members of which say they are marginalised by the country's Shiite-led government and unfairly targeted by heavy-handed security tactics.
Sunni anger has made it easier for militant groups to recruit and operate, while eroding the public's cooperation with security forces.
Anti-government protests broke out in Sunni-majority areas of Iraq at the end of 2012 and continued for over a year.
On April 23, security forces moved on a protest site near the northern town of Hawijah, triggering clashes in which dozens died, sparking a wave of revenge attacks and sending death tolls soaring. 

"Tensions have been gradually rising since late 2012, but the storming of the anti-government protest camp in April and subsequent killing of protesters prompted a violent backlash by armed members of the Sunni community," said John Drake, a security specialist with risk management firm AKE Group.
"Radical Islamists have taken advantage of this by escalating their attacks, gradually eroding the effectiveness of the security forces," he said.
On Monday, security forces tore down the country's main anti-government protest camp west of Baghdad. Clashes broke out in the area as the camp was removed, and continued into Wednesday.
The Syrian conflict has also played a role in the heightened violence, with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an Al-Qaeda linked group, launching attacks in both countries. 

"The rise in fighting in neighbouring Syria has given (militants) a strategic boost. They now have the opportunity to create some sort of a safe-zone crossing the border of the two countries in which they can operate with minimal interference from the authorities," Drake said.
"This will allow them to conduct training, build bombs, raise funds and gather recruits, allowing them to bolster their power and prepare for more" attacks.

DNC Fears Obama Impeachment?

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) sent out a email urging supporters to vote for Democrats so that Republicans can't impeach Obama.
The email, subject line "Impeachment," was sent to Obama for America supporters, imploring them to contribute to the DNC's 2014 efforts. "What do these people all have in common?," the email asked, featuring quotes from Republican Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma, Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, Rep. Kerry Bentivolio of Michigan, and Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas discussing the possibility of impeaching Obama for one of his numerous instances of presidential misconduct.

Obama’s Top 10 Constitutional Violations Of 2013

One of Barack Obama's chief accomplishments has been to return the Constitution to a central place in our public discourse.
Unfortunately,he fomented this upswing in civic interest not by talking up the constitutional aspects of his policy agenda, but by blatantly violating the strictures of our founding document. And he's been most frustrated with the separation of powers, which doesn't allow him to "fundamentally transform" the country without congressional acquiescence.

But that hasn't stopped him. In its first term, the Administration launched a "We Can't Wait" initiative, with senior aide Dan Pfeiffer explaining that "when Congress won't act, this president will." And earlier this year, President Obama said in announcing his new economic plans that "I will not allow gridlock, or inaction, or willful indifference to get in our way."

And so, as we reach the end of another year of political strife that's fundamentally based on clashing views on the role of government in society, I thought I'd update a list I made two years ago and hereby present President Obama's top 10 constitutional violations of 2013. 
Feel free to add to this list!

70-Year-Old Grandfather Attacked In A Drive-By Knockout

buffy black widow
A 70-year-old man, James Gorman, was pushing his wheelchair-bound wife across the street in their neighborhood, their granddaughter sitting in the wife’s lap, when a car stopped to avoid hitting them.
Two 20-year-olds then emerged from the car and beat the grandfather. Can you guess who those two 20-year-olds were?
That’s right, he was beaten by two blonde-haired, blue-eyed, female Dutch immigrants.
What? Not what you expected? Why didn’t you expect that? Was there some other type of person you expected who would give a septuagenarian a black eye and tear his rotator cuff?

Surely you can’t have thought the two people in the car were young black males. That certainly would have fit the pattern we’ve seen lately, but it would be racist to acknowledge such a pattern. You wouldn’t want to be called a racist, would you?
Well, bad news: you are a racist. Your initial assumption—and don’t deny you thought it—that the two attackers were black males is correct. They weren’t white, they weren’t females, and they weren’t Dutch. I lied to you. They were young black males.
Cars in Gorman’s neighborhood typically drive too fast for his taste. He worries for the children at play.

So on Friday, as he noticed a car speeding in their direction, Gorman stepped into the street as a way of alerting the driver that there are people around and to please slow down.
Certain groups of people don’t like being told what to do, especially by honkies. Unfortunately, it was members of that group who were in the car Gorman was trying to get to slow down.
Coming to stop where Gorman stood at the side of the road, two black 20-year-olds emerged from the car, went up to Gorman, and pummeled him to unconsciousness, throwing into their punches all the might of their chip-hoisting shoulders.
When Gorman came to, the Knockout-Americans were driving away and his wife had fallen out of her wheelchair attempting to help him. Neighborhood children were crying at what they had just witnessed.

Better get used to it, children. This is the way America is and this is the way it will stay since all of our leaders, even those hardcore conservative ones, both in politics and in leading conservative blogs, are too weak, cowardly, and politically correct to do something more than just talk and make excuses for these people.
I guess being called a racist is worse than watching your own race get bullied and pushed around in your own country and bred out of existence with multiculturalism. Slow genocide is more preferable to being called names.

Union Director Tells Triple Amputee Veteran: ‘I Hope You All Lose Your Limbs And Die’

New Year’s With The President

New Year’s With The President
By the time you read this, 2014 will be banging on the door like a government storm trooper trying to serve an arrest warrant for removing your home from the power grid. The arrival of a new year often brings not only a chance to reflect on the year that just ducked out the back door, but also to make the usual empty promises we call “New Year’s resolutions.” The average person who bothers tends toward the rote. “This is the year I: quit smoking, lose the weight, cut back on the sauce, finish (insert as-yet-incomplete home improvement project here) and/or become slightly less of a TV-entranced couch potato.” For some people the resolutions might be more ambitious: “This is the year I: start my own business, marry my dream girl, retire and/or become slightly less of a TV-entranced couch potato.”
Being the ruminative sort, I considered the New Year’s resolutions President Barack Obama might make were he the resolution-making sort. I wondered: Would he resolve to come clean about the myriad scandals, disgraces and outright fraud that have marked his Administration like an oversized cattle brand? Perhaps he might resolve to stop treating the Bill of Rights like off-brand toilet paper. He might even resolve to spend less time playing celebrity fun-time in Vegas while Americans die in Libya. But those are the sort of resolutions a man capable of introspection might make. Even a cursory examination of Obama’s tenure thus far reveals a man who not only believes his own cult of personality, but believes in it.

Obama would never make a New Year’s resolution, because a man who can lie that easily about even mundane things (that skeet-shooting picture looked as uncomfortable as Eric Holder driving back across the border after a weekend in Juarez) would never think he had any resolutions to make. The logical next question follows like rape charges after an “Occupy” riot: What resolutions would I want Obama to make?
Sure, I’d like him to resolve to admit that Obamacare is a clumsily executed racket. I’d love to hear him resolve to cough up a few seconds of honesty about something (anything!). Hell, I’d even settle for an Obama resolution to stop wearing “mom jeans” on his bike rides. Isn’t this guy friends with Jay-Z? You know Jay-Z is way too baller for “mom jeans,” yo. But there’s actually only one resolution with which I’d like Barack Obama to kick off 2014: “I, Barack Obama, do hereby resign the Office of the President of the United States; effective immediately.”
Now that would be a happy New Year, indeed.

How To Create A Banana Republic Out Of A Once-Great Nation

How To Create A Banana Republic Out Of A Once-Great Nation
Altruism is a mask for deception. The fiat system promotes altruism with slogans like, “For the greater good,” “It’s for the children” and “Equality for all.” Translated, this means, give of your substance so that we may all be equal.
Altruism is an attribute of the liberal mind. It is based on groupism, which is the concept of egalitarianism. It is the opposite of individuality and responsibility. It is the basis upon which all redistributive schemes are launched.
The psychopaths walking the halls of power are about to employ it yet again. They want to divest people of their retirement funds in order to prop up the failing regime. They will do so by converting 401(k) plans and individual retirement accounts to government debt. These discussions have been going on for several years.
There is also precedent for this confiscation scheme. It happened as recently as September in Poland.
What you will hear more and more of in the coming months are words like “savings inequality” and “racial inequality.” They will be used to condition simple minds to accept that they are responsible for funding the retirements of the “less fortunate.”

A report by the liberal think tank National Institute on Retirement Security notes that black and Latino households hold much less retirement savings than white households. Among near-retirees, the per-household average savings balance for blacks, Latinos and Asians is $30,000; whites average $120,000 in savings.
I have already reported to you that the Washington, D.C., elites are eying your retirement funds and the discussions are becoming more open. President Barack Obama proposed “automatic IRAs” in his 2013 budget. These would have required business to contribute 3 percent of an employee’s salary to private companies selected by the government in order to fund a pension.
So how do you turn a once-great nation into a banana republic? First, you divide the people against themselves by slowly changing their psyche to collectivism and altruism. Then morality becomes quicksand, and reality becomes spurious and frivolous.
Collectivism and altruism diminish individualism and transforms the mind. Adolf Hitler used this concept to manipulate the German people into false patriotism and self-sacrifice. Now, it’s déjà vu all over again.
Can we be slaves and give our total allegiance to the state without being conscious of it? Can we support the state without awareness? Yes. And how do we do it? The answer is that we work for depreciating currency. We “save” in depreciating currency. We buy life insurance in depreciating currency. And we leave our estates in depreciating currency.
Collectivism and altruism are the rot of morality and individualism. The people evolve into nothing more than an expression of the State.
