Livin' The American Dream


Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik were the ideal American couple.  They lived in relative middle-class comfort.  A new six-month old baby rounded out the family.  Relatives lived in the neighborhood, and provided the security of a support group.  She was a typical housewife.  He worked in the biggest growth industry in California - environmental regulation.

It was practically a Norman Rockwell portrait of the idyllic American Muslim family.

And yet, one fine day they left the baby with grandma and calmly slaughtered 14 innocent co-workers at a Christmas party and wounded 20 others.

Their home was a bomb factory and armaments cache.  Possibly one cell of a larger network.

What caused this to happen?  Was it poverty?  No.  Was it isolation or non-acceptance in the community?  No.  Was it unemployment?  No.  Was it American aggression in their homeland?  No, she was Pakistani, he was born in the US.  Was it insanity?  Not likely, they were fully functioning and apparently rational.  Was it climate change?  Don't be stupid.  Perhaps it was an offensive cartoon.

What made Farook associate with known terrorists and Malik pledge allegiance to ISIS?

There is only one possible answer:  Their ardent devotion to Islam.  That is the one and only characteristic that all Islamic terrorists share.  To deny this is ignorant and deadly.

This horrific incident changes everything.  It is now painfully evident that no one (not even their families, apparently) can distinguish between a "moderate" Muslim and a radical Islamist.

This is not to insinuate that all Muslims are terrorists.  But it does call into question the wisdom of opening the gates to tens of thousands of unvettable refugees who may be radicalized or have the potential to be.  If we didn’t see it coming with Syed and Tashfeen, why are we doing this? 

Other than the self-flagellating countries of Europe, who else is accepting these dangerous refugees?  China?  Russia?  India?  Saudi Arabia?  No.  Interestingly, these are also the countries that don’t support climate change propaganda and won’t sacrifice themselves to this false hysteria.

America needs to decide whether it wants to join the world of rationality or the world of self-destruction.

The leftists in power and in the media are in full cover-up mode to protect their agenda.  Their words and actions make them complicit co-conspirators with the Islamic terrorists among us.  This is only the beginning.

San Bernadino Terrorist Attack is on Obama

Obama left the gate open and the front door unlocked, and then invited 85,000 potential Jihadists into America's house for a party.  The results were predictable.  14 dead and 20 wounded.  Unfortunately, this is only the first of many, many more to come.  This will transform our way of life much more significantly than even Obama could imagine.  Americans will soon live in a constant state of fear and anxiety, making it easier for leftists to take control of the population.  Of course, Obama, Hillary, and fellow leftists will continue to blame these terrorist attacks on their guns, scaring law-abiding citizens into agreeing to ignore the second amendment and have their arms confiscated, paving the way for his vision (and Soros') of a fascist totalitarian global regime.  We will be under the complete control of the most evil people in history, living in terror, under the pretext of protecting us from terrorism.

Now is the time to control that fear, and mount the courage to stop this plan before it becomes a reality.

Imaginary Climate Change


Since the dawn of man, we have been attempting to attribute the forces of nature and climate to an ultimate source.  When those in power believed in God or gods, every extreme climate event was the act of a vengeful deity.  Now that those in power on the left are largely atheistic (and filled with an ubiquitous guilt) , the fault becomes man's.  Climate events now are the "largest", "hottest", driest", "wettest", etc. phenomenon on record.  Forget that we had an ice age, a medieval warm age, a mid-American "dust bowl", and numerous other "extreme" events.  People tend to think only in terms of their own personal experiences and make judgments from that perspective.  See the enlightening article from Steven Goddard here.

National Propaganda Ministry Transforms Black Islamist-Sympathizer Mass Murderer Into White Supremicist Skinhead


Truth and honesty are no longer part of the lexicon for today's leftist "mainstream" media.  The preservation of the narrative trumps all other considerations.  Read the full sickening article at Conservative Treehouse.  We are going to need a radical change of direction in America, or the country is done.  Speaking of Trump...

The Barack Obama Song

(Sung to "The Flintstones" theme)

Obama
Barack Obama
He's a modern stoner mystery...
From the town of Bill Ayres
He's a Prez without a his-to-ry...

He and
Michelle ride in separate planes
Tellin' us
To sacrifice for climate change

His social
Engineering
Increased our poverty and hate crimes
And his corrupt slime
But he's had a gay old time!

Welcome to the New Blue America












Democrats have given this country so many gifts:  Poverty, riots, crime, drugs, curfews, martial law, misery, ignorance, and racial hatred.  Just look at a typical Democrat-run city like Baltimore.  Republicans have been absolutely locked out of leadership positions here for generations.  The city government is run by leftist Democrats, the schools have been run by leftist Democrats, and the police department has been run by leftist Democrats.  So who's to blame here?  Read Kevin Williamson's great piece here.

Destroying Capitalism and Christianity are the Goals of the Left

Gay marriage as a leftist issue is a Trojan horse.  It's obvious that since leftist activists are attacking Christians but not Muslims, it's not about gay rights. It's about destroying Christianity.  

It's also obvious that the "global warming" movement is not about saving the planet.  Just look at the signs they are carrying at protest rallies. They say "System Change Not Climate Change". They don't want to "save" the planet from warming. They want to rid the planet of capitalism and replace with a socialist world government that redistributes wealth from the US to third-world dictatorships and topples America as a world power. Just read UN Agenda 21 and research the people who are driving it. It leads back to Nazi collaborator George Soros. 


He has provided organization and funding to rapid integration of illegals, the Ferguson riots, and most of the Cloward-Piven strategies employed by the left.

Superstitious "Science" - Correlation vs Causation


The Associated Press and National Geographic have run recent articles correlating CO2 to global warming, global warming to drought, and drought to war in Syria.  These "science" articles imply that CO2 caused the Syrian war.  The journalist "scientists" who wrote them obviously don't understand the logical fallacy of  post hoc ergo propter hoc, i.e., "after this, therefore because of this". The logical corollary is "correlation does not imply causation".  

In 1933, Syria experienced another severe drought.  Since Yo-Yos had recently been introduced to the country, Syrian leaders blamed the drought on Yo-Yos, and outlawed them.  The superstitious logic in blaming droughts on Yo-Yos and CO2 are equally fallacious.

The Wild 2 Year Roller Coaster Ride To Hell


Obama's War On The Middle Class

Leftists, with Obama's assistance, are dedicated to destroying the American middle class.  This is because it is the source of conservatism.  Read the revealing article by Michael Snyder on the 27 facts showing this is happening.  Don't doubt the motives of Obama and the left.

Obama Votes "Absent" and Sends a Message

Three million seven-hundred thousand Frenchmen marched in the streets of Paris on Sunday.  Over 40 world leaders, including heads of state from the major European countries, Middle-Eastern countries, Palestine, and Israel join them in an historic protest against Islamic terrorism.  Where is Obama?  Where is Biden?  Where is Kerry?  Where is Holder?  All of our fearless American leaders send a message to the world, telling them how they feel about Islamic terror.  They vote "absent".

A golden opportunity for Obama to appear as a world leader is wasted.  But it's more than incompetence, isn't it?  No leaders from the world's most radical and oppressive governments joined the demonstration.  Obama just showed the world which side he is on.

Why Charlie Hebdo and Benghazi Are Different Yet The Same

The Benghazi deaths of four brave Americans, including a US ambassador were the direct result of an anti-Islamic video.  It was a horrible, disreputable video, made by an evil man who had to be imprisoned immediately.  Or so we were told for weeks after the incident by President Barack Obama, National Security Advisor Susan Rice, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  Obama even repeated the charge three weeks later at the UN General Assembly, even though at that time he knew it wasn’t true.  Hillary promised the father of one of the fallen Seals who died defending the compound that they would punish the filmmaker, rather than promise to apprehend the terrorists responsible for his son’s murder.

Now we have a group of French cartoonists from who made satirical cartoons that were anti-Islamic in a comic newspaper, Charle Hebdo.  Based on the logic of our President and Secretary of State, aren't they responsible for the violence?  If they had lived, shouldn't they have been rounded up and imprisoned, as well?  

Does Islamic terrorism trump freedom of speech?  Well, Islamic murderers took care of that question for them.

So which is it?  Do Obama and Hillary defend the Constitution of the United States or Islam?  The two are mutually exclusive.  They must answer that question.

America Is Being Transformed Into "Brazil"


Our dishwasher broke just after Christmas.  The timer stopped working, and a new one costs about $100.  My wife suggested that since the dishwasher is nineteen years old, we should buy a new one.  Up until now it was working very quietly and efficiently, washing and drying a full load in about an hour.

We visited the appliance shop where we had recently purchased a new clothes washing machine a few months earlier.  I mentioned to the salesman that our new washer was very slow, taking nearly two hours to finish a large load compared to our old one, which took about 35 minutes.  With a bright smile, he explained that that was because of the new federal energy efficiency standards for clothes washers enacted by the Obama administration’s Department of Energy in May 2012.

(I later looked this up on the Energy.gov website, and found that this new regulation was only one of over 40 new onerous energy regulations on products and appliances already enacted, with many more to come, including for Christmas lights.  According to the website, these are “sensible steps” that will save consumers “billions on energy bills”.  This is a highly suspect claim.  When energy consumption decreases, utility companies typically raise the price per kilowatt hour to make up for the loss in revenue.)

And by the way, our salesman interjected, this standard also applies to new dishwashers.  They now take as long as three hours to complete the wash and dry cycle.  Oh, about your nineteen-year-old dishwasher…don’t expect the new one to last that long.  No matter which one you buy, from $250 to $1000, the average expected life of the new washers is five to seven years.

At about this time, I started hearing a song in my head.  It was “Aquarela do Brazil”, the theme song of Terry Gilliam’s 1985 movie, Brazil.  Gilliam’s film is a “dystopian satire” of a totalitarian society where all of the appliances have been designed and built by mindless bureaucrats.

The protagonist, played by Jonathan Pryce, haplessly tries to use a telephone that has wires and plugs like an old-fashioned operator’s switchboard.  Computer screens are so tiny they need to be read with magnifying glasses.  Pryce’s air conditioning system is a monstrous contortion of smoking tubes and wires.  When it breaks and he tries to get it fixed, he is trapped in a government-controlled nightmare of endless forms and apathetic repairmen.

Robert De Niro plays a “terrorist” rogue engineer who zip-lines himself into people’s apartments and fixes their air conditioning systems without government permission.

Our country is becoming Brazil.  The ever-increasing barrage of regulations being unleashed by Obama’s DOE, EPA, and myriad other agencies have spurious and unproven “benefits” to Americans, but many potential unforeseen consequences.  We only need look at the Affordable Care Act (a name that could only be dreamed-up in Brazil) as a textbook example of the results of releasing massive amounts of regulations without adequate controls or review. 

21,000 new regulations have been enacted under Obama, and 2,375 are scheduled so far for 2015.  Congress does not have the power to stop this avalanche, and can do very little to slow it down.

The sad and frustrating part of this “government gone wild” scenario is that it is highly doubtful any of these regulations can be rescinded or fixed before they potentially cause significant permanent damage to our individual freedoms, to say nothing of how they will negatively impact our day-to-day lives.  This is how Obama’s “fundamental change” of America is accomplished.

As I write this, I am ordering a new timer for my old dishwasher.  I just hope De Niro shows up to help me install it.

The Democrat War on the Middle Class


The title of this piece should be the mantra on the lips of every Republican.  What has been the Democrat war plan?

1)      Raise the cost of health insurance dramatically.
2)      Make it mandatory.
3)      Enforce it using the IRS.
4)      Give subsidies to the poor.
5)      Put the entire burden on the middle class.

Democrats are solely responsible for making this happen.  They did it by coercion and bribery.  They pushed it into law without any public review, or even any Congressional review.

But, there are still other examples of this war to eliminate the middle class.

Have you noticed how the cost of groceries is skyrocketing, while essential goods such as toilet paper are rapidly shrinking in size?  Gasoline has come down in price recently, but it is still far from the prices we were paying in 2008 when Obama was elected.  And do you really expect it will stay down for long?  If so, I have some wetlands here in Florida I would like to sell you.  The problem is that none of these staples are considered in the inflation rate calculations made by the US government, due to modifications in the calculations made by the Obama administration.  It is a double-whammy to the middle class, as bank interest rates and social security inflation adjustments remain near zero because of these “modifications”. 

“Tax the rich” and “income inequality” are mantras for Democrats, useful idiots and the terminally stupid.  Most of the truly wealthy lean to the left, and couldn’t care less about income or taxes.  They don’t need incomes to stay prosperous, as their wealth is already in the bank.  Increasing already elevated tax burdens on higher incomes only insures that no one in the middle class will ever join the ranks of the “rich”.  

Artificially increasing low incomes and the minimum wage in the name of “income inequality” will increase consumer prices and unemployment, squeezing the middle class and helping to insure that no one of their ilk joins the status of the elitist wealthy.

Of course, a “wealth tax” might scare the wealthy.  But that is already happening, as the Fed is intentionally devaluing the US dollar 2% per year over the next twenty years.  This “wealth tax” will reduce the value of our savings by one-third over that time period. It is a 33% tax on our post-income tax savings.  We are experiencing a Cyprus-like wealth-confiscation scenario, but it is theft by stealth. This should concern the rich, if it weren’t for Wall Street making up the difference in rising stock prices.  Who does this wealth-confiscation monetary policy hurt most?  I’ll bet you’re smart enough to have figured that out by now.

Why is it necessary for Democrats to eliminate the middle class?  Well, for one it is the primary voting block for Republicans (and even more importantly, for conservatives). 

In a communist system, and theoretically in any socialist system, there is only room for two classes, the ruling class and the proletariat, i.e., the struggling poor. The capitalistic-created American middle class is somewhat unique in a world historically composed of the oppressed and the oppressors.  It is a fragile and newly-formed group that can easily be crushed.  Democrats have history and politically evil intent on their side.  “The Democrat war on the middle class” needs to be shouted from every rooftop and blog site from now until 2017.
