Ooobie on Everything

My Safe Space

You hear so many crazy things these days. I don’t know how I would keep up if I hadn’t already predicted most of them. Recent suggestions for a better America include the mass expropriation of property from lighter-hued humans for transfer to those of a darker shade. (At last, the home of my dreams is within reach!) The allocation of seized properties would be carried out honestly and fairly of course by a cadre of Super Humans who are above politics, greed and personal skin color, although all of them must be Democrats. In today’s America and elsewhere in our world, but only in progressive places, real-life whites not only wish themselves into blackhood, but are hired by (I am taking this on pure faith) genuine blacks to head the latter’s skin-based organizations. In today’s America, thousands and thousands of people from what used to be a bastion of learning (go Sox!) march militantly to silence Free Speech. They no doubt toast with chilled chardonnay afterwards, throwing their nasty little pink caps in the air like a psychotic Mary Tyler Moore fan club, smug in their day’s work of crushing the Constitution beneath their hob-nailed sandals.

Now we are debating whether or not we should rewrite parts of US history that are so shameful, so they say, that they should not be allowed to exist. Today that category of non-things and non-persons includes anybody who fought for states’ rights in the War against the North, anybody who owned a slave prior to the Civil War, or lived with a slave as husband or wife without openly marrying them and setting a good example — people like Thomas Jefferson, who treated his woman Sally with a dignity and stature unheard of in that time, a man who educated his half-African children. It means defacing and destroying and disappearing stupid statues whose names are covered in pigeon shit. (Reminds me of a sixth grade field trip to DC, sitting in a park, eating my bologna sandwich and looking at a statue of someone who was no doubt a war criminal of some kind, when a pigeon shat upon my hair. I try not to blame the statue, and these anti-statuary freaks would be well advised to do likewise.)

But what will be forbidden tomorrow? Perhaps whole classes of deplorable people you used to think of as ordinary Americans will be shipped off to reeducation camps, or invited to step onto the glorious Pathway, as invented by British socialists. And when will we start airbrushing out unpleasant presidents who weren’t someone you’d invite home to meet the parents? Taft was so faaat, ugh.  Or candidates who were a Big Fat Zero?  (Here’s to you, Hillary!) By eliminating outmoded and/or offensive aspects of our history, that fabled tale could then be rewritten by those whom I and others call “Gen Zero.”

One of my favorite concepts to be spawned from the vacuous minds of the left is that of the “safe space.” When I was a junior officer in the Foreign Service in Jamaica we had safe spaces that were closed off by rape gates. The gates gave you time to call in the troops before dying at the hands of home invaders armed with automatic weapons. But this new idea is galaxies and light years ahead of that simple idea. These safe spaces began their existence as proposals for the timid, if militant, Deviant Sexualists that have been churned out by our schools. In their “safe spaces” you were forbidden to be mean or refer to any deficits in the safe person’s psyche or body or dating partners. No fat jokes or sissy jokes. You were increasingly expected not just to tolerate but even be a proponent of sexual deviancy at risk of bursting through the safe walls of all the safe  bubbles in which the sensitive oddities were living. Now, of course, that seed of compassion has expanded (no weight pun intended!) to include anything that upsets anybody about anybody or anything else. Entering or violating the safe space by the offensive is a crime punishable immediately by the use of violence.

I’m sure you can see the problem with the concept of “safe spaces,” that being where does yours end and mine begin? If I feel happy in my safe space spouting out things you hate to hear, does that impinge on your happiness over there in your safe space? Does that mean you can pull a gun on me? Or set me alight with a make-shift molotov cocktail made out of a can of hairspray?

And what would my own safe space look like? If I gave into my more nasty and brutish side, I’d prohibit anything other than hate speech directed at Hillary Clinton, anybody in the Democrat Party, James Comey, Robert Mueller, all left-wing Hollywood blowhards, and also, and especially, Harry Reid and John McCain. I would only allow specific news outlets into my air space, which means no “mainstream media” (and that’s a good one).  It probably doesn’t mean Fox News anymore, not since the Murdoch purges began. In my own safe space, there would be no entertainment beamed into my home filled with nudity, bestiality, and stupidity. Children’s cartoons would make them laugh, not serve up propaganda that makes them cry and worry about all the latest issues. No sex education pornography would intrude on young minds. No illegal immigrants would dare march or wave a foreign flag demanding the US do this or that. No novels could be written within five years of a major event concerning said event. Similarly, no movies could be made. All movies would require an actual plot and real actors. No more reality tv. No students who don’t study, no intellectuals who think comic books are philosophy. No politicized civil servants; no angry feminists; nobody who isn’t exactly sure of his or her gender.

But then I think, what would that make me if not just what those creeps I despise are? Narrow-minded, intolerant, and ignorant of our rights and obligations under the Constitution. So I think that my safe space would be a nation where schools were non-partisan and education was for learning and exploring and debating ideas. It would be a place where kids were almost always free from menace from their elders in their homes and in their neighborhoods, and where parents try to instill eternal values, like honesty and decency, not cultural myths. People could debate, without the use of obscenities or name-calling, or even with it, but without resorting to or threatening violence. A place where everybody knows that sometimes you win, and sometimes you lose. And that the two things aren’t the same.

In fact, my safe space looks exactly like the America I grew up in. Too bad today’s youth don’t know how that was.


Oh, for heaven’s sake. Now it’s the rage in America to march against freedom of speech

I have tried mightily not to return to the pages of this blog. Frankly, it was all boringly repetitive. How many times can you say that the Russia story is bogus, made up for political goals, and provide clues, before you decide nobody in this country cares? It is far easier to write off the disastrous Clinton campaign to treachery than it is to accept that you boobs on the left chose a lemon for your honey. I was bored with the deliberately provoked angst over Ernst Blofeld aka Vladimir Putin trying to take over the world. I never found a convincing answer to the question: how can Russia be so third-rate and so first-rate at the same time? I never heard an answer of any kind to “where is the proof that Russia did any of the things you accuse it of?” and certainly not to the question, “where did Russia change any election results in any precinct in the country?” I got tired of asking. The left-provoked hysteria made the American air rancid, like bad breath. I decided I’d let Judicial Watch do the digging and asking for me.

I was (and am!) tired of the women in this country, who have all the opportunities a woman could want and are still whining because the country didn’t hand them the presidency. They feel offended, and I’m offended by their offense. I’d say taking their side and my side together, every woman in America is now offended by something. And as an aside, I was really tired of women who marched so jolly wearing a knit hat said to be a pussy, but which looked nothing like any definition of the word. The very idea of such an antic points to the essentially juvenile nature of the left and its useful fools.

I am tired of the men who aren’t men at all, but think it is okay to be a “little gay.” Although gay is so tame. Who cares about gay? Today we have women who mutilate themselves by taking male hormones, cutting off their breasts and hanging on to the other stuff, and no doubt many “men” as well. As Cher’s benighted daughter said, she wasn’t giving up her fun as a woman just because she wants to be a man. No real commitment there, if you ask me.  I have seen two stories in which such a creature has given birth after “becoming” male. Think of that poor child. In any humane state, such critters would be sterilized at the same time as their sex change operation, even if only partial. This will prevent any poor child from being conceived by such people. Who is paying for all this medical experimentation? When I was young, insurance companies would not even pay for infertility treatments for women!

I am tired of the suffocating hypocrisy of the left, on all matters, but Charlottesville and Boston come to mind. I remain floored that 15000 people came out and marched against freedom of speech. That’s the flat truth of the matter, no matter how the media gussies it up. The licensed demonstrators put out a list of “rules” in advance that stated their goal of giving support to the First Amendment and advised that demonstrators were not to bring any  type of arm or carry  any type of hate paraphernalia, not to provoke or be provoked, etc. So as not to invade the safe space of all those Boston folks so afraid of free speech, I guess. In any case, people were riled up that there was still somebody not cowed enough to shut up about free speech, which everybody knows is just a code name for racism, insensitivity, cultural buffoonery, ignorance, homophobia, and so on. This thus required a mob of 15000 to show those licensed demonstrators who was boss and warn they better shut up. And guess what? The licensed demonstrators were frightened by the mob and left, taking Freedom of Speech with them.

Oh, yes, Boston and its famed university are well down that slippery slope to irrelevance and even treachery to the US Constitution. Go Sox!

Meantime, those wise men who made our country great, and led great conflicts at risk of life, but who were not lucky enough to be born in the 21st c. with its cultural nuances and deep morality, are having their statues torn down (as if Thomas Jefferson gives a fuck). And pulled down by people who look like potential deportees or escaped criminals, who have zero understanding of US history or our cultural values (or those that were). Our history is to be rewritten by idiots.

What really rankles most is the creeps we somehow elected to the US Congress when they were posing as conservatives– where the hell does Rubio get off saying it’s all right to use violence against people whose messages you don’t like? Viva Fidel! He won’t be getting my vote or my measly ten bucks this next time. He can go home to Cuba, which I understand is now a free country or what he might accept as such. And Jeff Flake — elected on a wave of Tea Party support and now turned full scale progressive. Open borders (and strong backs!). Tell us Jeff Flake — what did you do for Arizona lately? You didn’t produce a health-care bill, did you? Or tax reform? But you found time to carry on a tirade against the President. I hope you don’t make it through the next Arizona primary and if you do, that you lose your seat. I’d rather an honest communist sitting in Congress than a false friend such as you.

Now we can come to the source of many of my frustrations, the President himself. I must say, even when I was harsh toward him, I was hopeful that the dynamism that made him successful in business would translate to the presidency. I am skeptical. And I am skeptical despite granting that on certain things he has fulfilled his campaign pledges or is  making progress to that end, and that his policies have actually worked (and will in time develop their own problems, as always will happen). Look at the drop in illegal immigration, which is making business scream in pain and leave advisory councils by the dozens. (How about an actual law to let workers sans families in to fill those empty spots and earn some money?)

I think Kelly has put an end to the harmful leaks, but he seems to be killing diversity of thought in the process. Steve Bannon’s departure is really, as Bannon himself said, the end of the “MAGA” period of Trump’s presidency. Slowly but surely Trump is being herded into the smooth notch where all the interests of the Elite and the Dark State meet. He is still resistant on the foreign war bit, but give his enemies (and ours) time.

If all Trump is doing is bringing some order to his policy-making process, then well and good. I said from the start that Trump had better be prepared to deal with all the variant outlooks he was putting on his staff and Cabinet, and he was certainly not prepared or able to do so. So Kelly’s iron fist is good, for now. On the other hand, I also see an emerging pattern in which all the conservatives are herded out of the White House and its environs to give place to those minions of the Deep State who never gave up occupancy. If that is the case, then I’m with Bannon — we have a war on to save the ideas that were behind Trump’s win; all we lack is a leader.

 

 


Trump sets his course

The inauguration, despite the very best efforts of the left, was hardly disrupted by the hate-Trumpers. Yes, they did wreak destruction on innocent business-persons with glass-front windows. Yes, they did get a chance to show us just how creepily diverse a bunch they are. But they didn’t convince us that our choice was wrong. On the contrary, watching them in action made all of us who support the President shudder with the close miss we had just experienced. The Election Deniers aren’t done yet. The very next day mobs of left-wing women gathered together in Washington to listen to hate speech and calls to violence from a bunch of Hollywood celebrities with a combined IQ of 75 and multiple stints in expensive loony-bins. Madonna led the spewers of bile with her dreams of blowing up the President. She is now reportedly being investigated for her incitement of violence. At the very least, I hope she gets escorted to FBI headquarters, one guy on each side, for a warning that her speech is not protected and that, should she continue such talk, a criminal case will be opened against her. Same should go for all the others on the left who think it’s not illegal to threaten to murder any Republican or disloyal Democrat, white, black or Hispanic, for nothing more than spite. These guys refuse to even consider a possible neutral position. As Lenin said, “He is who is not with us is against us.” These women get it.

Back to the marchers. They wore on their outraged heads inane little pink caps they knitted with their very own moral hands and called “pussies” (not, thankfully, anatomically correct). The adorable pussy outfits were accompanied by chants of childish angry slogans and expressions of cosmic unity and oneness among all women and the men in the crowd who also showed up as pussies. The ladies were up in arms that a man they dislike so much as they hate Trump could be president, and offered up a sea of fear and loathing for our amusement. Trump is now on notice that if he dares to declare abortion dead, he’ll be in trouble; or if he declares rape of women okay, he’s also gonna be in trouble. Likewise if he demands that all women immediately cease receiving any form of public assistance, Big Trouble awaits. If he opens internment camps for women, or tries to forcefully abort left-wing babies, just wait. Aside from all those warnings, they also tell us they want all their rights, which is a real head-scratcher. I think they think of “rights” as in “a right to engage in frequent irresponsible sexual encounters with or without birth control and to demand that other taxpayers pay for one’s birth control, STD treatments, abortions, or life-time costs for raising children born without the vaguest idea who their fathers were.” Those are what we call “aspirational” rights, i.e. the ones nobody can possibly guarantee. I’m really comforted to know that these women are out there, looking out for my interests. I’d like to know what rights I don’t have, too.

It’s hard for me to figure out if Trump is Hitler or Stalin, because the women frequently mentioned both Hitler and Vladimir Putin when dumping on our President (not theirs, of course). Trump is so bad, he could start his own world war.

I heard Trump’s  inaugural speech the first time only  in bits and pieces as I attended to other things, and it seemed a bit shallow. But when I heard the whole thing, I saw that it was an integral message and the message to the country’s leaders was clear. Take care of the people you represent. Stop enriching yourselves and blaming others for your failures. The time to stand up and take responsibility is today. We will no longer be in operation to take care of the elite. I think it was a fine message for a country that has grown a nearly autonomous government that barely recognizes the public as a significant consideration beyond election day.

Yes, this is populism. Yup, he’s thumbing his nose at the moneyed and powered elite, yeah, he is talking to regular Americans. Half the country hates him, but the other half feels like they finally found somebody who can cut through the lies and excuses. And it is the working middle class pillar of American stability who are liking the Trump populism, the people referenced in the terms vox populi and hoi polloi. (An aside: at the conclusion of the speech, the cameras panned and stopped on Bill Clinton’s beaming face as he applauded. Take a look for yourself. He is by nature a populist and you can see that he loved the energy of Trump’s populist declarations, the kind he himself had been trying to make for Hillary to the derision of her campaign gurus.)

I like Trump’s foreign policy message as well. Who needs a war when you can have peace? But at the same time, anybody who isn’t properly defended even as it defends everybody else is an idiot. So we will review our foreign policy script, which is incredibly bad, and see what must go and what should stay, and where changes are needed. We will decide that today’s enemies can be tomorrow’s allies, and that those we raised to great heights through free trade can be tomorrow’s enemies. We need flexibility instead of treaty constraints. We need to think first of our security, not Europe’s. They became rich socialist states because we bankrolled them by providing for their defense. That has to stop.

It is so refreshing to me to have that rank pro-war stench gone. The proponents of war against Russia and a NATO on steroids are still there and agitating. But their power was badly wounded with the Warrior Queen’s defeat. Unless somebody attacks us, we ought to just mind our own business and work on prosperity and security at home. The only real war I see is against the terrorists and we should make whatever alliance necessary for the purpose of defeating them. Beyond that, what I think is that war makes the rich richer. Peace raises the rest of us.

Finally, I think that Barron Trump is a very handsome kid who is going to wow the girls in a few more years. He seemed an eager learner and I wish him and all his family well. They need our best wishes to counter all the bad juju coming out of the left.

God preserve our Republic and our President.

 


On the Glory of Free Expression

Our younger generations don’t even know what freedom of expression is or means. That’s because they hardly ever hear a contrary voice throughout their school years and if they do, that voice is quickly silenced by peer disapproval and teacher discipline. Lenny Bruce, the foul-mouthed lefty who lived and breathed to shock hum-drum 1950s America with his harsh comedy, or the women who demanded a vote, or the homosexual who was openly who he was — they were acts that taught us the meaning of freedom to say or express whatever you like. It meant having to listen to these horses’ asses yammering at us even when we would have loved for somebody to shut them up. And we respected that right, knowing that someday we might need its protection as well.

Poor kids. Today  Lenny Bruce is the principal in their elementary school and actively discourages kids from pledging allegiance to any flag, especially that of the oppressive US. His teacher’s union is headed by the woman who demanded the vote and now wants to marry her girlfriend, the one who loses no chance to drum into the little kids’ brains that sex has nothing to do with what is between their legs and men are oppressors. His Boy Scout leader is a gay blade who accompanies the little boys to summer camp and plays with them to his heart’s content. (Why didn’t Michael Jackson volunteer as a Boy Scout leader? I bet he thought about it.)

And what about all those other people, the ones who disagree with the officially-acceptable point of view? Aren’t they allowed to speak their minds? Don’t we get the protection of the first amendment?

Well, in a word, no.

A straight baker must bake a cake celebrating a homosexual union the baker deeply feels to be a perversion and a sin. But a gay baker may refuse to decorate a cake stating “marriage is an act between one man and one woman,” a legal point of view held by numerous states, because it is offensive to him. A US flag flown by a vet in a condo complex has to be taken down; but Mexican illegals, in our schools at our expense, can fly the Mexican flag at school, wear it on their clothes, and hoist it pretty much anywhere. They can also fly the US flag upside down. In our prisons, the taxpayers are getting socked with the cost of making creepy convict males into even creepier convict females. Just consider that oh-so-creepy Cpl. Manning. (And Chelsea! I guess they look alike.) Soon it will be illegal for any church to preach that homosexuality goes against God’s law. I’m guessing a Department of Indoctrination is in the offing.

And when was the last time you recall the scientific community uniting with one voice to condemn the manipulative and deceptive practices of the eco-fanatics? Where is the letter from the NSF to the world, decrying efforts to silence and even punish anybody who scoffs at the prophecies of impending disaster we are tormented with at every turn?

How about religion in general? Atheists, trans-gendered no doubt, don’t want that religious crap anywhere, not in the US capital and not in your home, if you want to know the truth. And religion doesn’t hold much sway anymore, or so its seems given the various sects’ supine acceptance of the assault on them. I wonder how the Supreme Court will rule on homosexual marriage: will they uphold that First Amendment right that gives religion its special protections from assault by government, that specifically enumerated and deeply considered right; or will they ignore that right and create a new one out of whole-cloth, a right that, if put to the founders, would have found universal rejection as any such thing. Will they create a right that then seriously impinges on freedom of religion by making certain doctrines anathema and forcing churches instead to recognize homosexuality and the unions of homosexuals? Will pastors who oppose homosexual marriage be forced to marry two women or men anyway? I am absolutely certain, if this is how it goes, the  next step will be polygamy, then human and other. But let’s be brutally frank, as long as I’m expressing my opinions: marriage isn’t worth a plug nickel anymore anyway. It has already been deeply degraded by the left-wing gay rights agenda that includes the destruction of that institution and has become so au courant that the Republican elite has adopted it as their own, as well. Ask Ken Mehlman, our gay ex-GOP party chairman.

And God forbid that anybody should question the bona fides of a person with the right colored skin (anything but white). If you ask why Obama has been such a destructive force in the White House, accelerating the fall of the great American nation, it is because you are a racist. If you think that the Hispanic George (Jorge) Zimmerman was right to shoot that vicious little thug Trayvon Martin, you are a racist.If you think Al Sharpton is a lying, greedy and wicked provocateur who lines his pockets on other people’s problems, then you are a racist.

And now comes the female and womanly part of the “no freedom of expression zone.” Hillary Clinton. When the male GOP candidate goes up against her, he’d best pull no punches and go relentlessly after this corrupt and contemptible woman for all her underhanded dealings. If he shows any inclination to fall back to defense, the media whores of the Democrat Party will crucify him. Every word pronounced will be considered for its potential, even likely, sexism. So don’t make them look for it, give it to them. When you’re at a barbecue, gush how you love a hotdog and a bun, not two buns or two hotdogs, but precisely one hotdog and one bun!

I, for one, don’t intend to shut up voluntarily. I will go to my grave calling things the way I see them and rebutting the inane and lame arguments of the opposing camp. If all they have to say in return is “shut up,” I guess, like Lenny Bruce, I’ll keep on handing it out to those brainwashed Americans.


Hacking Freedom

hackingI feel as if I’ve passed some sort of milestone, although it may only be at second-hand. My blogging site was hacked so that it would be black-listed by Google. Given that Google didn’t mount the ramparts to decry the violations of our right to privacy by agents of the US Government, I should be happy. But really, I’d rather have the problem fixed. While chatting with the Site-Lock rep, I was told that the two types of websites most likely to be hacked are religious or political. What’s new?

 


On Violence: Man Against Man, Government Against All

statue 1I’m going to write today about our rapidly developing autocracy (Government for  The People, By the Vanguard) and our unraveling society. I will add my two cents  to the words flowing from the figurative pens of every other political  commentator in America, even if it seems a waste of time to express my views when others are saying the same things and far more eloquently. But sometimes  you write or speak not because your voice is unique, but because you want to be part of a chorus of anger and outrage.

Harried by the Mob: Knockout and Other Violent Amusements of America’s Youth

flash mobI greatly enjoyed the  movie Hunger Games. It was a spell-binding yarn about the dispossessed and disempowered scoring against the masters who control their lives. The main theme of the book (and film) is the tyranny of the winners over the losers, the strong over the weak, the rich over the poor. But there is another subtext, and it is violence. The tyrants use violence in Hunger Games they way the Romans used it in the arena, to give the downtrodden something to live for — a huge dose of surrogate cruelty that stirs the blood and makes all your suffering somehow worthwhile, because there — down there in the arena — is somebody whose life is worse than your own. Not only that, but the Emperor generously gives you the right to determine whether the man in the pit lives or dies a gruesome death. The crowds had a lot of resentment to work off and it was the lucky gladiator who got out alive. Yes, the Romans had a perfect social pacifier, giving the masses free bread, clean water and the chance to watch somebody torn limb from limb on a weekly basis. It kept their system going for centuries.

I wonder if we have progressed at all from Roman times. Obviously we have technologically: what wouldn’t the Roman lords have given for instant communication and automated killing machines? Such things would have made it much easier for them to keep the discontented down and out. What I’m thinking about is character. Have we reached a point where we really respect other human beings and their private space and their basic rights, or is it all just more propaganda from the people with power? When the government itself doesn’t respect individual rights and only selectively punishes its citizens’ violations of individual rights, the very concept of “rights” begins to erode dangerously.

Have you heard about the latest rage, which is called knockout? It’s a simple game played by black youths that appeals even to those — or perhaps especially to those — with only marginal functioning intelligence. All it requires is a mob and a zeal for inflicting pain on people with the wrong skin color. In an article published on the WND website, Thomas Sowell writes that this “knockout game” has been played for years by young black gangs in other  cities and other states, against people besides Jews – the victims being either whites in general or people of Asian ancestry. Sowell also mentions that in some of the cities where this gang violence is popular, the participants call it Polar Bear Hunting in a reference to the color of the victims.

The New Arena is not a specific place, but all around us on the streets of our towns and cities. Teenagers mingle in crowds, zero in on those looking particularly vulnerable (the elderly, mothers with children, invalids), and then without warning crash forcefully into the chosen victims with their bodies. The sudden violent jolt knocks the victim to the ground. Goal!  Three of the victims of this game in three different cities have died from their injuries; in one case the victim died from head injuries when his head struck a curb and went straight through the bars of a bicycle rack. Oh, joy! The player in that case no doubt got one million bonus points for causing grave injury or death as well as despair to the surviving family. One hopes he also got a long stretch in prison.

Then we have flash mobs. I’m not referring to the all-race flash mobs of unsupervised kids running out the door to dance and party or do something non-violent, but to malicious mobs of black youths summoned for deliberate criminal acts, often assaults on whites that involve considerably more violent methods than knocking somebody off their feet. I’m talking about the mobs that converge on stores to destroy, loot and pillage or to beat somebody to death.  Here’s a snippet from Wikipedia:

Referred to as “flash robs,” “flash mob crimes,” “crime mobs,” or “flash mob violence” by the media, these mobs start with the intent or lead to the destruction of private property, robbery, violence, and personal injury. Mark Leary, a professor of psychology and neuroscience at Duke University, said, “the illegal and violent component is also not unlike ordinary crimes where a group of people do something illegal. What social media adds is the ability to recruit such a large group of people that individuals who would not rob a store or riot on their own feel freer to misbehave without being identified.

No surprise there, right? Mobs act just like…mobs. A  mob has no conscience. A mob has nothing but an appetite for violence. The scary thing is, mobs are no longer seen as the mindless hives of miscreants that they are, but have become fashionable and provoke hardly a whimper of protest from the mainstream media. Or at any rate, black mobs have become fashionable; a bunch of white guys in pointed hoods would not win the same silence from the media that those “mobs of color” have enjoyed. Here is what Lawyers.com has to say about it:

In 2011, flash mobs gathered in cities across the country and wreaked havoc. For the most part, the mobs were made up of teenagers, and they committed all sorts of crimes, from shoplifting to assault to robbery. For example:

  • In Philadelphia, flash mobs assaulted pedestrians and vandalized property. One participant pled guilty to aggravated assault for beating and stabbing a bicyclist. He faces 5 to 20 years in prison.
  • Flash mobs in Chicago are responsible for robberies and assaults, and even causing a McDonald’s restaurant to close for several hours.
  • In St. Paul, Minnesota, flash mobs targeted convenient stores, stealing whatever they could and fleeing before police could respond.

And then we have another manifestation of the thirst for violence among our youths: black and sometimes Hispanic gangs — not quite mobs — that rove America’s streets specifically looking for a defenseless white person to traumatize, torture, rape or murder. Here are some news items collated by MartinLutherKing.com (which also offered the lyrics of rap songs that urge their listeners to violence against whites):

In Denver, a white female teenager, Brandy Duval, is raped, sodomized, tortured with a broomstick and stabbed 28 times by a gang of six blacks and Hispanics. Her skull is caved in and corpse dumped into a ditch.

In Killeen, Texas, a white couple, Todd and Stacy Bagley are kidnapped on the way to church, lit on fire, burned to death and shot in the head by four blacks.

In Flint, Michigan, three white teenagers, Michael Carter, Dustin Kaiser and (girl’s name withheld by police) are attacked by six black youths. Carter is shot and killed. Kaiser is beaten and shot in the head, but recovers. The girl is forced to perform oral sex on her black attackers, pistol whipped and shot in the face.

In Jacksonville, Florida, a mentally retarded white man, Gregory Griffith, is beaten and stomped unconscious by blacks and died a few days later. The blacks admitted to the police beating Griffith because “he was white.”

I won’t bother to reprint the black rap lyrics, which would be merely spreading the poison. If you are interested in knowing what messages are being beamed out to America’s minority youths, you can check out Black Rappers Call on Blacks to Murder and Rape Whites at MartinLutherKing.com.

I have to wonder where the heads of the left-wing social engineers are lodged. This country is becoming a cauldron of racial animosity and race-related violence, this time with the blacks leading the charge, and many of this country’s leaders (and I mean Democrat leaders in first order) want to outlaw guns. Those rap songs talk about stabbing whitey, too. How about outlawing knives? Then we could all be using the plastic forks and knives they dole out to patients in a psychiatric institute, which would be appropriate to the asylum we are becoming.

When are we going to come to grips with the fact that hate speech and the hate feelings that inspire it are alive and well in America and growing in popularity? This isn’t about mass killers, often white and often young, who are off their rockers and on the loose because we don’t have a system to get them timely help. Their rage is color-blind and they kill anybody of any age and sex who happens to be in their line of fire. These violent amusements involve people who know better. As individuals, they would probably not engage in violent assaults, but they are freed from societal stigma when their crimes are committed under the umbrella of a mob. And they are encouraged by the failure of our media and our nation’s highest leaders to stand up and say this must stop. Where is that fount of wisdom and peace, Barack Obama, who has no problem flailing out at white racists? The silence about what is happening is an invitation to the beasts on the prowl to continue.

violent gamesYou would think that all these years after society said a resounding no to racially inspired violence, we would have left such things behind us. But it seems we are doomed to go down clawing each other’s eyes out. And our society is conspiring in it, feeding the urge to kill with games and music and movies and tv shows that make it all look so easy and so satisfying. How hard is it to grasp that giving kids a game whose sole point is to unleash hostility through simulated violence is likely to increase the chances that the kid, having grown bored with the fake stuff, will look for a chance to try it out in real life? How about those movies that are blowing guts and gore into the very souls of our children? In America, the blatant disrespect for the basic rights of the individual, chief among them the right to life, has become an epidemic. And if it isn’t stopped, it will spread until there really is a race war in the United States. And all the bogus “hate laws” that protect only certain groups and not everybody, and that focus on the incidental and not the fundamental, will not stop it.


Updating America’s Symbols

symbolsI’m wondering if it isn’t time to change the symbols of the United States to new  ones more compatible with where our nation is going. Obviously the Bald Eagle no  longer has much to say about America. It is a bird with a massive wing span and  great power that allows it to soar higher than other birds, but its power is  complemented by grace and beauty. An eagle knows what its purpose is. It is  swift and sure. Other birds know better than to provoke the eagle, because the  eagle does not go into battle except to win. How does this magnificent creature  capture the spirit of today’s America?

Now This is Fundamental Transformation

border1There is a big push at the moment in favor of immigration reform, the Dems having successfully intimidated the GOP into folding over Obamacare and the debt ceiling. Obama’s Storm Troopers no doubt feel doubly confident about getting a grand deal on immigration. If the Republicans were spooked by the left-wing propaganda campaign over the debt ceiling, they will be paralyzed with terror at what is waiting for them in the immigration arena. The so-called reform awaiting us is essentially a full amnesty (with benefits) and in short order citizenship for millions of people who didn’t respect (our fear) our country enough to obey its laws. Nice way to start; next comes illegal voting. Our Wise One is creating a criminal class for his own political use.

Our president and his minions have seen fit to suspend the law, ignore the law, violate the law and bend the law to suit their whims. His administration’s latest dictum is that anybody showing up at our door saying he fears for his life gets in the door, no questions asked, all in preparation for the Great American Amnesty and Citizenship Give-Away Executive Order Series. If you think Franklin Roosevelt was nervy in trying to stack the Supreme Court, how about that Obama — trying to stack the US population. If the GOP tries to stymie this measure in Congress, Obama will probably have to pretend the Congress doesn’t exist or have any authority if it does. All he needs is one of those handy-dandy Executive Orders. In any case, I think the Dems are on the right track with the GOP. The party won’t even pretend serious opposition and any individual Republican House member opposing it will be demonized within the party. The Republicans have miraculously turned into the “party of yes,” but it took a Democrat administration to do the trick.

illegalmalesThe Obama regime is complicit in the open violation of our borders each and every day. Our government works with the Mexican government to advertise US public welfare programs available to illegals, enticing more to emigrate from Mexico and points south. The  illegals are encouraged by incompetent and corrupt governments relieved to see the back of a few million more burdensome peasants. And they are coached and encouraged by our own corrupt government, which welcomes them with open arms, a fistful of taxpayer dollars, and a pledge of fealty to the Democrat Party that needs nothing more than a digital thumb-print. In California, I predict that the law will be changed soon to give the vote to anybody who happens to be in the state on election day, including all the illegals. It was Democrat and Democrat-affiliated groups who were behind the protests by illegals and their open flaunting of US law.

Just yesterday I noticed a couple of items in the Wall Street Journal that bear on the immigration issue. The first article, by William Galston speaking as the Voice of Big Business, argues that a) everybody in the US (other than the Tea Party) wants to turn every illegal alien in the US into a citizen, not just a non-voting permanent resident; and b) everybody wants the extremists (Tea Party) to stop fomenting unrest, weakening the GOP establishment, and railing against the immigration initative. The  article claimed that Republicans feel just the same as independents and Democrats on this major issue. America needs these millions of new workers or our economy will collapse. Those calling for some radical crack-down on immigration, legal or otherwise, are trouble-makers and fringe elements.

slothThis pro-immigration article was supplemented in the same issue with another pointing out that 90 million able-bodied Americans aren’t working and instead are drawing whatever benefits they can get from the State. They don’t have any incentive to work. They do just fine living off other taxpayers. They are part of the consuming but non-productive swath of the American population that is growing bigger every year under the Marxist Utopianists.

Hmm. So we need to open our borders to the illiterate or near-illiterate who don’t share our political culture and are increasingly unassimilated in the US, and we need to do so because otherwise our economy is doomed because of labor shortages. But meanwhile millions of able-bodied non-working adults, legal US citizens, are draining the federal and state treasuries and watching Dr. Phil and Search for Tomorrow from 9-5. Does this make any sense? Well, it probably does — because like lab rats, Americans are being socially engineered to do the State’s bidding and our government wants a subservient, needy, weak public. Our government has so greatly expanded the benefits available to the country’s unfortunates and all the millions of slackers with them that there is zero reason other than boredom for seeking work. Which, surprise, turns people into meek recipients of their daily living and eager supporters of the dispensing hand, rather than independent wage-earners. It’s like magic: add human being, sprinkle on ample pinch of government largesse, and bingo, out comes a Democrat voter. Taking out one US resident from the list of the productive also creates a need for a replacement for that now-unproductive human.  The flow from Third World countries will never cease until there is nothing more to be sucked out of America.

Unfortunately for those of us who think borders exist for a reason, the movers and shakers in this country are all fully behind the effort to change our laws.  The vested interests are Labor, Big Business, churches of all denominations, and the Democrat Party. The unions want to renew their greatly-emptied ranks, Big Business wants a ceaseless flow of cheap labor to do our brute work, the churches want to fill their emptied pews, and the Dems want that Zion of their aspirations, a permanent political majority created from all those coming across the borders with their hands out. By abetting a kind of reverse colonialism, in which Latin America is colonizing the US, Obama and the masterminds behind him are reshaping everything to their elitist, Marxist taste. When this law is in place, you are going to see something Obama promised us — the fundamental transformation of America.

 


Government Shut-Down and Public Discontent

shutdownAnother week has flown by, life a round of bureaucratic exercises and politics a nest of snakes. The USG remains shut down and according to one poll, 70 percent of Americans can’t detect any difference in their lives because of the cessation of activity. I personally breathe a little easier knowing the engineers of our destruction are temporarily idle, and my most fervent wish is that they would stay off the job permanently. I admit that I was unable to speak with my local Social Security office to see why they were withholding money due them because SSA had miscalculated benefits when I had long ago sent them a check for same. The money grubbers never rest and never get furloughed. They just plow ahead with their screw-ups.

silent majorityI see the Democrat politburo has tumbled to the fact that some of us have anarchist sentiments. Well, not usually — but when the choice is having an oppressive government or none, I’ll take none. Isn’t it odd that we, the once-silent majority who allowed this erosion of rights over the years, are the trouble-makers — and the Dems, whose leaders were all birthed in that totally self-centered and anarchist youth rebellion of the 1960s-70s, are the old-liners, the hard-liners. These guys and their State Propaganda officers like Chris Matthews and Candy Crowley could be time-dropped into 1930’s Germany and they would fit right in with the Nazi crowd, I guarantee it. Or with the Bolsheviks in 1917, executing the aristocrats, the wealthy, and the just plain disliked. Someone like Kathleen Sibelius is generic to any authoritarian system.

crystal ballThe polls have swung wildly of late, now favoring the Republicans, now the Dems. Most recently the GOP is getting hammered and the soothsayers have been poring over the omens to see what it all means. The brat in the White House has been childishly vindictive and overtly partisan and punitive. His goal is to make the public — or the half of the public he doesn’t care about — suffer until they squeal and he has rejected arrogantly each and every offer from the Republicans on issues that need negotiation. The public still blames the GOP, say the political mavens. It seems to me that the analysts are off on a wild-goose chase. “The nation is blaming the GOP” may be the case, but a big part of that nation belongs to the voices within the center-right. Some Republicans disapprove of the drama in Congress, counseling pragmatic action that gradually advances our interests (they say). They are vehemently opposed to the Taxed Enough Already crowd and their representatives in Congress. They think Boehner should shut them up. Many others disapprove of the GOP because they (we) know the leadership isn’t sincere or committed to conservative principles. We see Cruz out there in the arena carrying the tattered banner of freedom, while Boehner and company look down from Olympus in anger and consternation. And we out in the hinterlands look back on them with contempt.

The dramatic drop in GOP favorability is far more a judgment from the party base than a national view of the party. The downturn is coming from its own ranks — conservatives who don’t see our representatives in Congress listening to our voices. We aren’t angry at them for shutting down government, we’re angry because they’re already cutting their usual deals to get that government re-opened before they are accused of being an opposition. We are seriously annoyed that they are tearing Cruz limb from limb because his approach to legislating doesn’t conform with theirs. We’re irritated as hell that a lot of those people we thought were conservative are in fact also looking for a deal and an end to an inconvenient (if much needed) confrontation with no winners and some big losers. We are fed up with the accommodationist crowd.

We’re dismayed that the Party so obviously functions like a beast with one spine and two brains, or one and a half if you are really honest about the Establishment Republicans. The GOP has demanded negotiations on a series of major issues that affect our common future, but is wobbly on holding the line. They keep stepping back that much further. They are determined to short-circuit the conservative revolt and close out this messy chapter of a dying democracy. Our snot-nosed president says he has nothing to discuss. That is because he has no ideas on offer except do what I say. The GOP leadership has no obligation to accept that position as reasonable, but they will end up doing so in exchange for some cosmetic fix they can tout as a plus. Just to get the upper hand over the rebels in their ranks. Just to move on. What I’d like to know is, where they think they are moving on to. If they think they’ll win once the public is exhausted with the left, they are quite mistaken. By then a big part of their voting base will have disappeared.

From where I sit, a man like Ted Cruz is the only kind of representative we should have: one who believes in and upholds our Constitution and one who thinks his positions should be dictated by the people who put him in office, not the guys who decide if he’ll be the GOP candidate next time around. The intransigents are in power in our country; it will take more than an amiable opposition to oust them. We need fighters, not wimps.

Okay, I’ll concede that all this may be a bad sign for the GOP, but it isn’t a bad sign for the conservative movement. It is the conservative wing that is rising up in defiance and saying that the Republicans are not much better than the Democrats and that neither is a constitutional-minded group. I read a commentary by a conservative who wrote that there are no true rights that cost anything. If something is a right, it comes grace of God and no other way. So education or health care or one’s daily bread are not and can never be rights, because somebody has to pay for them. And rights can’t be bought. Those who can’t earn the bread they eat need to be cared for by the neighborhood, the community, the author wrote. Except we don’t have communities anymore, we are broken irreparably and there are too many needy — because the government wants to break us all down to the lowest common denominator, the better to control us. Poverty grows, anger grows, and who knows what lies simmering in our future?

Pat Buchanan’s latest cogent argument concerns secession — specifically, its international legal precedents and the movements around the country by parts of states to secede. I recommend it. Its something we should start thinking about. Because it is tragically clear that there is no way back to the Constitution under the current regime. They are entrenching their autocracy.
