US Government Takes Startling Position
Thursday, October 06th, 2016 | Author:

Many people may have overlooked this report, but it represents an interesting perspective from the the US Government.  It appears that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) are accidently fessing up with a position contrary to their political correctness — i.e., racial minorities disproportionately commit (or are convicted) of crimes:

The DOJ and EEOC released a comprehensive report Wednesday examining law enforcement hiring, recruitment, and retention policies with the aim of increasing diversity in police departments.

The report–“Advancing Diversity in Law Enforcement”–highlighted barriers to diversity within police departments, such as “the use of criminal background checks” which the researchers found “is likely to disproportionately impact racial minority applicants.”

Becoming a Clinton Target
Thursday, October 06th, 2016 | Author:

An interesting observation by Scott Adams, the author of Dilbert, about his experience being targeted by Hillary Clinton acolytes:

Late last week my Twitter feed was invaded by an army of Clinton trolls (it’s a real thing) leaving sarcastic insults and not much else on my feed. There was an obvious similarity to them, meaning it was organized.

At around the same time, a bottom-feeder at Slate wrote a hit piece on me that had nothing to do with anything. Except obviously it was politically motivated. It was so lame that I retweeted it myself. The timing of the hit piece might be a coincidence, but I stopped believing in coincidences this year.

All things considered, I had a great week. I didn’t realize I was having enough impact to get on the Clinton enemies list.

Next Step in Leftist Agenda: Re-education Camps
Wednesday, September 28th, 2016 | Author:

This is the natural next step to the reductio ad absurdum of the Obama administration.  In the view of Obama and Clinton, the enemies are the US citizens not voting for Democrats and Climate Change… Take a step back and consider that we’re just shrugging our shoulders when Obama and corporate America declare North Carolina undesirable because the tar heels have declared that people should go pee pee in the proper rest rooms.  Calling the Obama/Clinton outlook Orwellian is not descriptive enough to reflect what we’re experiencing.  The next step is to tell you that you’re implicitly a terrible person and you need to attend re-education classes:

You’re guilty and you don’t know it. Sure, you think you’re a decent person who treats people fairly, judging them on the content of their character and not the color of the skin. But let’s face it: You’re deluded. Especially if you happen to be white, you’re biased and you don’t even know it. You’re unaware of your own privilege, and of the extent to which your beliefs, speech, and even mannerisms oppress people of color. It’s time to confess. It’s time to be re-educated. It’s time to rid yourself of your false consciousness.

I Suppose Facts Don’t Matter
Sunday, September 25th, 2016 | Author:

Some important facts that the Leftist supporters of violence in North Carolina may have overlooked:

Violence and looting have erupted on the streets of Charlotte, N.C. Those involved have tried to justify this behavior by claiming it’s a natural response to white racism endemic to the city’s law enforcement and justice system.

But that claim ignores highly salient facts concerning the incident that set off this latest wave of unrest. For starters, the police maintain that the dead man was armed. While angry protestors may choose not to believe that, there is no doubt that the police officer who shot Keith Lamont Scott is, himself, a black man. Moreover, the city’s police department is headed by a black police chief.

This is interesting news that 70% of those arrested in Charlotte came from out-of-state:

“This is not Charlotte that’s out here.  These are outside entities that are coming in and causing these problems. These are not protestors, these are criminals.”

“We’ve got the instigators that are coming in from the outside.  They were coming in on buses from out of state.  If you go back and look at some of the arrests that were made last night.  I can about say probably 70% of those had out-of-state IDs.  They’re not coming from Charlotte.”

Is Obama the Caliphate Trojan Horse?
Friday, September 23rd, 2016 | Author:

The 21st Century Messiah… or the Oracle from Chicago… or the Manchurian Marxist Moslem… or whatever you want to call him, delivered one of his latest melodious, conflicting, inane speeches at the UN:

None of this is any different from what President Obama has been saying for eight years. And during this time America’s global position has eroded, our friends have been confused, our enemies emboldened, a Caliphate established, and ethnic, racial, and economic tensions resurgent.

Not to worry. One more speech will do the trick.

I think that there is a possibility that Obama is the ultimate Trojan Horse in North America on behalf of the Moslem Caliphate — introduce divisive positions among the American citizens; bankrupt the nation and diminish the military strength; arm the terror-driven Iranians to the teeth; warmly embrace globalist positions that reduce borders; introduce open immigration that welcomes Moslems.   What more could a US President do to pave the way for the subjugation of the United States?

Do you think these assertions are crazy?  There are mountains of evidence to illustrate otherwise.  Very recent examples  include a story by the AP that essentially states that Obama is unwilling to support charges of genocide against ISIS;  Or how about Obama vetoing bipartisan legislation that supports the ability to sue the Saudis for supporting terrorism during 9/11.

Should we stop to examine the relationship with Iran in greater detail?  These are some pertinent comments from Adam Turner:

President Obama has certainly brought change to the Middle East. It may or may not have been the change that Americans were waiting for. But when it comes to the Islamist theocratic regime in Iran, there can be no doubt — Barack Obama was the U.S. President the Iranian’s were waiting for.

Is there a consistent pattern to Obama’s policy decisions?

No Comments About Moslem Crimes
Monday, September 19th, 2016 | Author:

Why would Obama, the Manchurian Marxist Moslem, want to comment about these crimes? Just because someone named Ahmed screamed ‘Allah Akbar’ before committing a terrorist act doesn’t mean anything… does it?

Obama has not publicly mentioned the Chelsea blast, the St. Cloud, Minnesota, mall attack Saturday night or the New Jersey bombings…

American Jewry and Israel
Saturday, September 17th, 2016 | Author:


Well, Caroline has gone and done it again.  She’s followed up her earlier editorial with this provocative commentary:

Most American Jews make their home on the political Left, and together with black Americans they comprise the most loyal Democratic voting bloc. American Jews have clung to the Democratic Party despite the fact that over the past decade and a half, their position in the party has become increasingly precarious.

On the one hand then, we have the Jewish Democrats who are faced with a party that is increasingly controlled by anti-Semitic forces. And on the other hand we are in the midst of the collective political suicide of the Jewish Republican establishment.

It is hard to know how Israel will be affected by the dramatic enfeeblement of the American Jewish community that we are now witnessing. The fact remains that the vast majority of American support for Israel comes from the evangelical Christian community.

What is clear enough though is that the political waning of the Jewish community across the political spectrum means that the golden era of American Jewry is not only over. It is gone.


July 4, 2014

A great editorial from Caroline Glick:

Defending Israel to an unsympathetic president from the Democratic Party is apparently too much to ask most pro-Israel American Jews to do.

And this is where Shavit’s book comes in.

By portraying Israel as a country that is morally deficient, Shavit gave the American Jewish community two gifts. First he gave them a way to feel morally superior, and therefore patronizing toward Israel. Israel, they can say, committed a massacre – and did so because its founding ideology is poisonous. American Jews would never do such a thing. But out of the kindness of their hearts, like Shavit, they will continue to love this unworthy cousin.

The second gift Shavit gave the American Jewish community was the ability to feel comfortable refusing to be inconvenienced for Israel.

How will America Remember Barack Obama?
Thursday, September 15th, 2016 | Author:

Another great commentary from Victor Davis Hanson about The Legacies of Barack Obama:

Apparently Obama is veering even further to the left, in hopes of establishing a rhetorical progressive legacy in lieu of any lasting legislative or foreign-policy achievement. Turning the presidency into an edgy soapbox is seemingly all that is left of Obama’s promise to “fundamentally transform” the country.

But divisive sermonizing and the issuing of executive orders are not the same as successfully reforming our health-care system. The Affordable Care Act, born of exaggeration and untruth, is now in peril as insurers pull out and the costs of premiums and deductibles soar.

The U.S. economy — with its record-low growth over eight years, near-record labor non-participation rates, record national debt, and record consecutive years of zero interest rates — is not much of a legacy either. Racial relations in this country seem as bad as they have been in a half-century.

What, then, is the presidential legacy of Barack Obama?

It will not be found in either foreign- or domestic-policy accomplishment. More likely, he will be viewed as an outspoken progressive who left office loudly in the same manner that he entered it — as a critic of the culture and country in which he has thrived.

It is interesting to recall some prognostications about Obama from November 2008 when I was pondering “Will He be Like Kennedy, Carter, or Clinton?“.  Or another posting from this blog entitled “More on Expectations from Our President“.

I have my opinion about how things actually turned out… what do you think?

UN Commissioner Warns of Western Populism
Tuesday, September 13th, 2016 | Author:

There’s no better hypocrisy than having a Moslem in the corrupt UN telling the world to beware the violence from Trump, Wilders, and Farage… as he compares these politicians to leaders of ISIS:

Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, the United Nations’ high commissioner for human rights blasted nationalist populists like Donald Trump and Nigel Farage for using “tactics similar” to ISIS to frighten and reel in followers.

I don’t know but the last time I checked Trump, Wilders, and Farage were not advocating the beheading of people that they didn’t like.

Moderating the US Government 
Thursday, September 08th, 2016 | Author:

Great commentary from Professor Reynolds:

So if the choice in 2016 is between one bad candidate and another (and it is) the question is, which one will do the least harm. And, judging by the civil service’s behavior, that’s got to be Trump. If Trump tries to target his enemies with the IRS, you can bet that he’ll get a lot of pushback — and the press, instead of explaining it away, will make a huge stink. If Trump engages in influence-peddling, or abuses secrecy laws, you can bet that, even if Trump’s appointees sit atop the DOJ or FBI, the civil service will ensure that things don’t get swept under the rug. And if Trump wants to go to war, he’ll get far more scrutiny than Hillary will get — or, in cases like her disastrous Libya invasion, has gotten.

So the message is clear. If you want good government, vote for Trump — he’s the only one who will make this whole checks-and-balances thing work.
