As the State Accrues Power, Liberty Abates

Thomas-Paine-Liberty-Quotes-Liberty-Quote

To the extent that government power grows, liberty diminishes. Remember this as you vote, America. Liberty is at a perilous crossroads thanks to lunatic voting of the Far Left and Right. Obama and Bush accomplished more in the name of government intrusion and centralized power than the last 42 Presidents combined.

Presidents are not Gods to be worshiped but men who are voted in to office to do the bidding of the people. Every power that they accrue to themselves comes at the expense of the citizenry. Every worshiper of the office of the President and of the men who are elected President chips away at the sovereignty of the American Citizen.

The trend continues towards centralization of Executive Power. The trend continues towards the diminishment of civil rights. The State grasps for power continuously. It is the responsibility of the American Citizen to ensure that our Liberties remain. If Liberty is lost, we have only ourselves to blame and Liberty, once lost, is never regained without revolutionary bloodletting.

“The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their Constitutions of Government. But the Constitution which at any time exists, till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole people, is sacredly obligatory upon all.”
— George Washington (Farewell Address, September 17, 1796)
(see George W. Bush’s comment on this subject)

“I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.”
— Thomas Jefferson (Letter to Archibald Stuart – 1791)

“Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.”
— Wendell Phillips (speech in Boston, Massachusetts, January 28, 1852, citing Thomas Jefferson, though it has also been attributed to Patrick Henry)

“When governments fear the people there is liberty. When the people fear the government there is tyranny.”
— Thomas Jefferson (attributed to Jefferson, by his contemporaries)

“Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.”   — John Quincy Adams (attributed to Adams, by his contemporaries)

The Patriot Act is the most unconstitutional legislation since the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798, which proscribed speech critical of the government; yet the FBI loves it. Its premise is that in dangerous times, if we surrender our freedoms to the government, the government will keep us safe until the danger passes. This is a flawed argument.

HEY AMERICA! (Lies In The War against “ISIL”)

obama
YOU GOT OBAMACONNED!!!

AGAIN

**********************************************************************

Before we get to today’s news, KP’s Kate Brannen has an interesting tidbit on how the air campaign against the Islamic State is being fought. When the Obama administration announced the start of a U.S.-led air campaign against Islamic State targets in Syria last month, much was made of the five Arab states recruited to confront the group. According to Kate, the role these nations are playing in the coalition is now less transparent.
“In fact, the Pentagon won’t be talking about allied contributions anymore at all: On Tuesday, in a quiet change, the Defense Department said it would no longer provide daily information on what its coalition partners were doing in the fight against the Islamic State.
“U.S. Central Command announced the shift Tuesday in its daily update about airstrikes in Iraq and Syria. ‘Beginning with this news release, out of respect for participating nations, U.S. Central Command will defer to partner nations to publicly comment on their airstrikes against ISIL in Syria and Iraq,’ the release said.
“The policy change comes after a week’s gone by without any mention of participation by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan or Bahrain in airstrikes in Syria. The last day it noted help from coalition partners was Oct. 14.”

 

Random Thoughts on the Destruction of American Liberty

deathofam

The DNC and GOP are evil.

Neither are good for the country.

Both are good for their respective Lobbyists and Special Interests.

Both target key demographics and lie to them to get elected.

Unions represent the interests of their respective organizations. Police Unions represent the interests of Police. They lobby for legislation that will benefit the Police. Laws such as COPS and 1033, qualified immunity, confiscation, etc.

The Wars on Poverty, Crime and Drugs were initiated by Democrats. All of these so-called wars benefit the Police, empower the police and destroy the rights of the Citizens.

The War on Terror was initiated by Republican Bush 2. However, Obama has taken that war and run with it. He’s made it his own. The NDAA, NSA spying, police militarization, assassination, rendition, invasions and occupations…all of these things were started by someone other than Obama, the Democrat. Yet, Obama has taken them and injected elephant steroids into these programs and gone about the business of destroying the Constitution.

Any Political Party that centers on the corruption that are American cities is bound to be corrupt.

Police have, historically, been Democratic run organizations. Not Republican.

Military members joining the police forces enmasse is a recent phenomenon. This is happening recently as a result of the terrible economy and programs put in place by respective Clinton, Bush 2 and Obama DOJs.

Our current volunteer military is only 30 years old. Prior to the “All Volunteer” military, our nations military services were made up of careerists who retired after they left service and draftees who were mostly poor. These draftees left the service and went into all career fields and some into none as most were from the poor or lower middle class.

This preposterous idea that the Police forces in the military are made up of mostly ex-military is patently false. I looked it up and it can’t be proven or disproven because no one (not even the DOJ) keeps statistics.

I have been researching American police forces for some time now because of Obama’s continuation of Bush’s War on Liberty. Police come from predominantly working class familes. They enter the police force between the ages of 21 and 24. That does not give the majority of them time to enter the Military, ETS and then join the police as a goodly majority of Police have at least 2 years of college. This is a prerequisite for some, if not most, Police forces.

Police Brutality, of late, is a direct result of the Bush/Obama war on Liberty and the Constitution.

Both the Military and the Police are tools of the State.

Police forces have been given qualified immunity. This means that they are not accountable to the citizenry and not held to the same law as the rest of the citizenry. They are, in fact, above the law. Bush and Obama have brought this about via legislation, “Wars on…,” and court appointments.

This must change or America will no longer be a free nation but, instead, little better than Maoist China.

The Democrats are no better than the Republicans. They are the same. This is an age old tactic. Divide and conquer.

By choosing D or R, you are defeating yourselves and destroying America.

Barack Obama is a War Criminal

I can find no difference in the actions of Barack Obama and George W. Bush.  Yet, Democrats support Obama and condemn Bush.  They are both guilty of war crimes.  Both guilty of circumventing the US Constitution.

Obama is using Bush/Cheney tactics and politics to subvert the National Will and to circumvent the Constitution.  He has lied.  He has fear mongered.  He has used WMD.  He has reused the Bush Act of 2002.  Yet, Democrats support him.

How does any of this make sense?

These same democrats condemn Israel for targeting civilians.  Yet, Obama is targeting civilians and has done so since he became President.  How does Obama differ from Netanyahu?

The Last Century Accomplished Nothing!

10632816_276425285894320_9038517133952519757_n

I do not think that Hillary is Hitler. One politician is about the same as the other. Some, like Hitler, are simply more successful in moving society to accomplish their aims. The aims are all the same. Control of the populace in a given geo-political area for the advancement of personal power. There is nothing more to it.

There are no Great Leaders out there.

Look at the great leaders in history.

Lincoln — He kinda freed the slaves. But not really. In order to keep the South in the Union, he prosecuted a war which claimed the lives of millions. How is he different than Hitler or Stalin or FDR or Churchill or any of the Monarchs of the 17th Century.

FDR took America to war for Democracy and to save the Free World. In the end, more people were enslaved by communism than were threatened by the madness of Hitler.

Ike, JFK, LBJ took us to war in Vietnam to stop the communist dominoes from falling. In the end, those communist dominoes fell anyway. Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia all fell to communism. Indonesia became a dictatorship.  Nixon’s “peace with honor” all but ensured the fall of Cambodia to the Khmer Rouge.  Congress’ failure to support South Vietnam or Laos after our withdrawal ensured their fall to communism.  What did we accomplish except to participate in slaughter and sacrifice our citizen soldiers to madness and arrogance.

We supported the Indonesia dictator.

How were the people of Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia or Laos better off after our War of Liberation?

In Iraq, Bush “liberated” the Iraqi people from Saddam Hussein only to have Obama hand those same people over to a Shi’ite despots and the Islamic madmen of the Islamic State.  All the while, we supported the Monarchy which fuels Sunni Extremism via Dollar Diplomacy.  The Wahhabis owe everything to Saudi Arabia.  The Wahhabis are ISIS, al Qaeda, al Jihad, the Muslim Brotherhood and every other Sunni Islamic Extremists group extant.

In what war has America actually helped anyone?

We defeated Germany and Japan? They went on to become economic superpowers. This would have occurred anyway. In fact, the war with Japan was over the US and Britain keeping resources away from Japan that would have allowed them to become an economic superpower. We basically warred with Japan for five years in order to destroy them so that they could recover and become exactly what we had attempted to stop them from becoming. Millions died because FDR and his economic obstructionism. Yet, FDR is a hero and Hitler is a villain.

It was the same with Germany. Britain did not want Germany to become master of the Continent. So, we warred with them twice in conflagrations which engulfed the world in flames…so that Germany could become the economic master of the Continent.

What did we accomplish with our wars?

Asia slowly recovers with Laos and Cambodia lagging and their people suffering in poverty. Vietnam is becoming a mini-economic superpower and are loosening their economic controls so that capitalists can profit. This benefits the State and the Capitalists. There is relatively little benefit to the people.

Germany is the power of the Continent.

Britain has lost it’s empire. (I suppose that’s a plus).

America is still an economic power though we are doing our best to implode.

Russia is what it has always been. The poor man of Europe and the villain of the east.

China is a burgeoning beast with the potential to ruin or save the world as it has always been.

And history begins to repeat itself.

Is war on the horizon?

It seems that Political Leaders of the World are repeating the sins of the last century even as they preach of peace. I see no peace. I see no good coming of this next few decades. If the “Great Leaders” of this coming Century are as incompetent and arrogant as those of the last, the World is doomed to simply repeat the sins of the past.  There were be Great Leaders only because they take us into Great Wars.

Where are the visionaries?  Where is our Jesus?  Our Moses?  Our Gandhi?  Where are the leaders who not only preach peace but practice it?

Can the earth survive human war or human peace?  If we war on one another with our current technology, we may make this world uninhabitable.  If we do not war and continue “peaceably,” human being will reproduce in unsustainable numbers.

There seems to be no way out.  By War or Peace, humanity’s ignorance and lack of foresight endangers itself…ensures it’s fall.  Perhaps that is not a bad thing.

Barack Obama Commits America To War with Russia

president-obama-worried-face-5-9-14

“I say to the people of Estonia and the people of the Baltics, today we are bound by our treaty alliance. … Article 5 is crystal clear: An attack on one is an attack on all. So if … you ever ask again, ‘who’ll come to help,’ you’ll know the answer – the NATO alliance, including the armed forces of the United States of America.”

Committing America to an alliance via NATO to the Balkans is insanity.  No intelligent leader of a Nation would do such a thing.  Is America responsible for defense of the entire Globe?

Were I Putin, I would test Obama here and now.  I would invade Estonia.  Show Obama and NATO for the jaw jacking clowns that they have become.

At the end of the Cold War, we gave Russia assurances that we’d not chip away at their regional sphere of influence.  The Russian concern was that with the disintegration of the Soviet Union the United States via NATO would attempt to surround Russia with surrogate Nations.  This we have done.

We have our military in Eastern Europe, Central Asia, Japan, Korea among other places.  This gives us a complete encirclement of Russia.  There is no reason for these actions.  Russia has not acted any more or less belligerent than any other Nation.  Nor have they been nearly as bellicose as the United States of America.  They have acted on terrorist threats on their border and periphery.  America has invaded the Globe and claimed it to be our right with the “pre-emptive strike” strategy/arrogance.

We tell Israel that they are wrong to launch pre-emptive strikes in Lebanon, Iraq, Egypt, Syria and the farce that is Palestine.  Somehow, though, it’s legal when we do it.

The last time that Russia was encircled in this manner, a World War was launched.  Germany invaded Poland.  The Soviet Union was not long in waiting for their German invasion.  One hundred years earlier, France launched their ill-fated Napoleonic effort to defeat Moscow.  Not quite one hundred years after the Nazi invasion of the Russian heartland, America finds itself enmeshed in the Ukraine and treating with the nations that are historically used as invasion routes to Moscow.

The Russians must be feeling deja vu.

This is not the only instance where it seems that Barack Obama is historically deficient.

Barack Obama seems hell bent on bringing about World War III.  One wonders how long until Putin reacts with more than threats of low level nukes.  One wonders how long until Putin tires of Obama’s arrogance and ignorance.

The Media and Police Shootings

 

ap470585862363

Why does the media make such a deal out of White on Black Police Shootings and not the Black on White Police Shootings?

One thing that I notice is that when a White Cop shoots a Black kid. It matters very little to the average Black person that the kid may [or may not] be guilty. There is a presumption of innocence. There is a presumption of brutality. There is the immediate assumption by the Black community that the Police Officer had other means at his disposal to resolve the dispute or to bring that “perp” to Justice.

And notice that I used the abbreviation “perp.” Police seem to like this word. “Perp” is short for perpetrator.

Perpetrator. What are police saying when they use this word. They are saying perpetrator of a crime. When the police call a suspect a “perp,” they are automatically assuming guilt. In many cases, Police arrest innocent citizens whose only crime was being in the general vicinity of a crime and having the same characteristics of the assumed guilty party.

Once one is in the grasp of the police, they automatically assume one’s guilt. YOU are guilty the moment you come into contact with the police.

Back to the issue at hand.

A black person is shot by the police.

1. The police have already concluded the guilt of the person whom they shot. This is a given. Else they’d not have shot that person.

2.  The Police have automatically assumed guilt.

3.  Black citizens being fully aware of a bias within the police community brought on by decades of media portrayal of Black citizens as dangerous criminals and “gang bangers” as well as political vilification of the Black community by American politicians from Lyndon Johnson to George Herbert Walker Bush to the present day politicians such as Nancy Pelosi and John McCain assume the worst of police motives and competence in the field.

4.  American police have a “I deserve to go home to my family at night” mentality which gives them a cowardly shoot first attitude when facing the dangers of their profession. 

5.  Police are not known for their negotiation skills or for having a professional community relations dynamic.  The police in most communities are an occupying force and no longer the neighborhood police who are friends and helpers placed to serve and protect.  The “serve and protect” ethic died long ago.  Police are now militarized and aloof.  They stay in their cars.  They do not interact with the community or it is rare to see this dynamic in action.

6.  The White population of America automatically label any Black person who has an altercation with the police a “thug.”

With all of that in mind, Black citizens of America know that justice will not be served regardless of the guilt or innocence of the victim of a police shooting.  An innocent who is shot will receive no justice.  The police will make statements saying all of the right words and phrases to placate the press and the White public of America when they are found to have shot an innocent UNTIL the public loses interest.  Once the public loses interest, the police will then forget the victim.  In most cases, promises made will go unfulfilled as is happening right now with the toddler who was injured in an incompetent SWAT raid on a house in Georgia.  

Black citizens know this.  It happens time after time until finally a “Ferguson” explodes in righteous anger.  A poor black community explodes, the police respond as if they are storming Fallujah.  Peaceful protestors are lumped in with trouble makers, the press is arrested and all rights are suspended while the White Governor, White City Police Chief and other politicians make irresponsible statements and incompetently “deal with the event.”

Ferguson is a study in how NOT to navigate a civil disturbance.  The Police automatically went on the defense, pulled out their “battle rattle” and proceeded to go on the offensive.  Citizens were called animals and told that they would be killed if they exercised their rights to assemble, free speech and petition.  No State, County or City official made any real moves to hear the complaints of the people.  Outsiders such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton interfered and intervened exasperating the situation.  

Everything that a public official could do wrong was done wrong.  Incompetence and unAmerican actions were taken by the State and local governments.  The people were treated as if they were criminals.  Citizens were maced, gassed, brutalized.  The press was maced, gassed and brutalized.  Worse, yet, were the police screaming threats as if they were a legion of centurions about to storm a barbarian stronghold.

The Media, of course, saw these events as worthy of covering.  Pundits waxed poetic, idiotic, ignorant and wise.

Now, turn to the White kid who was shot by the Black Police Officer.  

The Black Police Officer shot a White kid.  The community wherein this incident occurred simply assumed guilt on the part of the White Police shooting victim and went back to their day to day business.  No White person asked questions.  No White person stopped to think that perhaps this kid didn’t deserve to be shot.  It was assumed that if the kid was shot, he was guilty of something.  No one cared that a White kid was summarily executed by the Police much less that it may have been racially motivated.  The only reason that anyone is even discussing this shooting is because of all of the media attention given to Michael Brown and Ferguson.

If the White victim of the Police summary “justice” had been killed at a less voluminous moment concerning police brutality and police militarization, the White community would not have noticed.  Add in the fact that he was only half White and that he was half Hispanic and the White Public would assume that he was guilty and wrote him off as a Latino Thug.

However, since he was half White and shot by a Police officer who happened to be Black, this is a good time for the Political Punditry and Puppetry of the Right Wing to juxtapose this victim of police brutality and summary justice against the Media attentions given to the Black victim of police brutality at the hands of a White Police Officer.  

Willie Robertson Of "Duck Dynasty" Visits FOX's "Hannity With Sean Hannity"

Note, though, that the pundits and puppets aren’t speaking to police brutality or police militarization.  Ney, they are attempting to use this to downplay race.  “See,” they say, “Black Cops kill ‘White’ kids and White folks don’t go crazy.  The media doesn’t give it the attention it deserves because it was a Black on White killing.”  Never mind police brutality, the shoot first mentality of the American Police or the heavy militarization of the American police brought about by the unconstitutional wars on terror and drugs.  Instead, they’re only interested in “I told you so” and “See, racism is all in your mind.”

Puppets and pundits are only interested in downplaying and diverting attention.

And White America is falling for it….AGAIN.

It’s pure brilliance.  FOX News is the lead actor here.  

The assumption by FOX is that the police acted correctly and that Michael Brown was guilty.  This despite the fact that American citizens are supposed to be presumed innocent until proven guilty.  They are on the side of the State even as they pretend to be on the side of State’s Rights and the Bill of Rights.  

The rest of the media are just as complicit.  They divert our attentions away from real issues constantly and consistently by covering idiot issues and non-issues such as missing rich kids in Aruba.  They fawn over political actors instead of acting as real journalists.  

The media in America, though, has a history of political fawning.  Most citizens are unaware of this but the majority of the news organizations in America were started as mouthpieces for the political parties.  Yet, we expect them to tell us the truth about events and issues in America.

The media is simply a government mouthpiece.  When their preferred party is in power, they are silent on their transgressions.  When their preferred party is not in power, they trumpet the transgressions of the other.

We expect the media to be watch dogs.  They are not.  They are puppets and pundits, liars and scoundrels of the first order.  Any journalist who attempts to tell the truth faces the same future as James Foley.

In the meantime, if one is Wealthy in America, one is rarely guilty.  Justice in America is not real but purchased.  For the poor, it is nearly always out of reach.

Obama & Political Hostage Negotiations; Bread & Circuses

1495352_337214699771228_8114357683120430011_o

 

 

If you think about it, this is most heinous. A most heinous decision.

Obama swapped out five Gitmo prisoners for a guy who deserted and sought out the Taliban. The Obama Administration has constantly and consistently lied about the whole Bergdahl travesty. Bergdahl and family continue to be silent about the whole affair when before the family was consistent in their criticism of the American War on Terror.

Obama then refused to pay a ransom for a guy who was out there trying to find out the truth about ISIS and American policy in the Middle East.

Transparency, hope, change…Where are these ideals in the Obama Administration.

And please…PLEASE do not mention the ACA which was/is nothing more than a profit guarantor for Democratic and Obama Campaign contributors such as Pfizer, Humana, Aetna and other “Health,” Insurance and Pharmaceutical Industry giants.

Face it Democrats, Obama pulled the wool over your eyes. He’s George W. Bush the Democrat.

Hail Caeser! The Scum of the Universe.

Eat your bread and enjoy the Circus idiot Obama Zombies.

Obama Repeals 13th Amendment; Legalizes Slavery

obama-lincoln-comparison-obama-lincoln-slavery-politics-1313363899

Typo not mine

Obama’s Executive Order 13603 essentially repeals the 13th Amendment; gives the Federal Government the power to enslave citizens:

Sec. 502. Consultants. The head of each agency otherwise delegated functions under this order is delegated the authority of the President under sections 710(b) and (c) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2160(b), (c), to employ persons of outstanding experience and ability without compensation and to employ experts, consultants, or organizations. The authority delegated by this section may not be redelegated.

Sec. 601. Secretary of Labor. (a) The Secretary of Labor, in coordination
with the Secretary of Defense and the heads of other agencies, as deemed

Obama & the Race Shield

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

Bizarrely, racism in America is no longer mainly about race. Sure, race is involved in a peripheral manner, but racism has mainly become an excuse, a dodge, a way to escape responsibility.
When a black liberal is criticized, he cries racism. When liberalism fails, liberals cry racism. When the Democrat Party gets in trouble, liberals cry racism. It has become the ever present background noise of politics, like birds chirping in the forest.

I am White. I have friends of nearly every race, religion, ethnicity and political persuasion across the width and breadth of this planet. My earliest friends were Black, White, Hispanic and Asian. Included in this mix were Muslims, Hindus, Christians and Jews as well as a couple of Atheists. Most of these folks until this past decade were American but now, I number amongst my friends peoples from countries as far and wide as Scotland, Egypt, Cambodia, Thailand and Brazil.

I have been friends with this great mix of peoples for as long as I can remember.

These are not just people whom I label as friend and then ignore. I keep in touch with these people. I live with them. I work with them. I have helped them find employment. I have hired them for employment. I have assisted some financially. I have helped them improve their English. I have taught some life skills and job skills. They have hired me and recommended me for promotion.  I have learned life and job skills from them.  I have enjoyed their company and companionship and do so at this time. I have invited them to my homes and the home of my parents and siblings. I have played with their children and befriended their families.

I have debated various topics ranging from culture to religion and politics with them and discuss said topics and opinions with them openly. I agree with them on some topics and disagree with them on others.

I have lived my life openly and with as much love, warmth, humanity and companionship as is humanly possible.

Yet, if I dare not agree with Obama I am a racist.

On a smaller playing field, these same accusations were thrown at me when I dared to criticize Tubby Smith at Kentucky. Yet, when I criticize John Calipari, I am simply called a dumbass. lol

Does no one else see the evil in this?

“Racism” is constantly at the forefront of the Obama Administration conversation.

I am not saying that racism does not exist. However, the Democrats reacted in similar manner to all things Bush. The Democrats called Bush every name in the book and even conjured more juicy names and labels for him and Cheney. No one said it was because of Race.

Republicans treated Bill Clinton far worse than they treat Obama. Yet, racism wasn’t constantly thrown in the face of the opponent.

Race, for better or worse, is a factor in nearly every facet of life across the whole of this planet.

The Obama Administration and Democrats act as though racism was invented in America by White Southerners.

It’s a ruse. It is a sidebar. It’s a deflection. It is cover and concealment for corruption.

They called the opponents of Nagin in NOLA racists. A few years later, Nagin is found to have been a corrupt turd and that corruption was a major factor in the fiasco that was Katrina.

Yet, no Democrat has come forward to say; “Doh! They were correct. Nagin was a turd. There was merit to the accusations and criticism.”

Racism with the Obama Administration is a crutch and nothing more. It has become meaningless.

Obama could be assassinated by the KKK and because of this administration’s constant use of Racism as a political tool, I’d find myself doubting that racism was the real reason behind the assassination.

This despite the fact that I have witnessed real racism against the Obama Administration.

Islamic Tolerance would, today, be called Apartheid

Islamic Tolerance would today be called Apartheid

“I call you to God and to Islam. If you respond to the call, then you are Muslims: You obtain the benefits they enjoy and take up the responsibilities they bear. If you refuse, then you must pay the jizyah. If you refuse the jizyah, I will bring against you tribes of people who are more eager for death than you are for life. We will then fight you until God decides between us and you.” (Al Tabari, Volume XI)

Khalid bin Al-Waheed (Muslim General, 632AD)

It is truthful to say that Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.

Tolerance: the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with.

Tolerance is sometimes a first step towards elimination or assimilation. We can tolerate the influx of immigrants in the United States until (or only if) they assimilate. It’s the same with Islam.

Islam tolerates Christians and Jews (and whomever else) as long as they eventually assimilate. At the apex of Islamic Empire, this tolerance worked in their favor. They were THE World Power, especially in the Eastern Hemisphere, and those below them were of little consequence. Islamic law made it difficult to be an outsider or less difficult to revert (convert). Non-Muslims in Islamic lands were required to pay a special tax (jizya). No buildings were to be created or built that were for the purpose of worship or exercise of any other religion. Non-Muslims could ride on a horse in many (most) Muslim lands. Non-Muslims could not own Muslim slaves. Though Muslims could own Muslim slaves. Any non-Muslim in a Muslim country was characterized both culturally and legally as a dhimmi.

So, yes, Islam has a strong tradition of tolerance. At that point in Islamic history, tolerance worked in Islam’s favor. Let’s not confuse tolerance with true acceptance, though. Non-Muslims in the Islamic world were little better than second class citizens. In today’s parlance, the existence and lifestyle created by Islamic tolerance would be called Apartheid. Apparently, Mr. Obama believes that this is a thing to be tolerated when it exists in Islam.

In the modern age, most Islamic nations are small despotic, tyrannical States with no real power outside of their borders. Tolerance does not work. In order for Islam to survive, no other religion can be allowed to have influence over the people or the culture. Islam will not survive if people are allowed to make choices contrary to Islam.

Islamic civilization was definitely a tolerant society at one time. In some cases in some countries, it still is today. However, I hardly would call this Apartheid-like tolerance any better than Southern Jim Crow.

Summon the people to God; those who respond to your call, accept it from them, but those who refuse must pay the poll tax out of humiliation and lowliness. If they refuse this, it is the sword without leniency. Fear God with regard to what you have been entrusted. (Al Tabari, Volume XII)

The Obama Legacy (Oligarchy and Soft Martial Law)

Image

Obama’s legacy is:

Terror Tuesdays
Drone Warfare on steroids
the murder of US citizens
ramping up the Police State
supporting 3rd World thugs
trillion dollar indebtedness
an economy on the brink of collapse
America viewed as the greatest threat to world stability
Obamacare ensuring that the “health industry” is raping the American taxpayer
using the IRS and DHS to destroy political enemies
Fed Reserve more powerful than ever
employment transformed into permanent wage slavery
the 1% more influential and wealthy than ever in American history
the madness of taunting Russia unnecessarily in the Ukraine and Eastern Europe (continuing Bill Clinton’s legacy)
presiding over the final slide from Republicanism to Oligarchism
Occupy movement folks imprisoned for protesting based upon KGB tactics
NSA domestic spying
CIA operating in America
The Drug War trumping up charges on average Americans
the militarization of all areas of American governance from local to federal levels

And soon, if you don’t pay your taxes on time, you won’t be able to depart the US.

Even non-US citizens are being stalked and harassed over funds “owed” to the US.

And his greatest achievement: fooling “democrats” into believing that he is doing all of this for their benefit

#IdiotAmerica, What about any of this sounds like hope? What about any of this sounds like freedom? Obama doesn’t need to take anyone’s guns. He’s brought more war machinery to the US Government than any US President in history.

In Obama’s America, we are all guilty until proven innocent.

America after Obama is not that different from Afghanistan.

And Obama is being lauded as a savior.

Awesome!

Republicans and Democrats are the proving to have been the destruction of America. Good job!

There’s your hope and change. May you all get what you deserve.

Is “Wage Theft” a thing? Wages and the Corporate War Machine

expendables

 

Wage theft. Hmmm

 

Wage theft is the illegal withholding of wages or the denial of benefits that are rightfully owed to an employee. Wage theft, particularly from low wage legal or illegal immigrant workers, is common in the United States.[1] Wage theft can be conducted through various means such as: failure to pay overtime, minimum wage violations, employee misclassification, illegal deductions in pay, working off the clock, or not being paid at all. These violated rights have been guaranteed to workers in the United States since 1938 by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

 

Purposefully depressing wages so as to drive up stock prices and CEO bonuses?  While fully realizing that the whole idea behind the free market is to make profit, I can’t help but wonder why it seems to be anathema to actually pay employees a wage that allows them to live and DREAM….to experience life and find enjoyment.  As opposed to what we have now.  And what we have now are corporations who seek to pay the LEAST to their employees for the maximum output.  Corporations expect an employee to give them their all. Corporations seek, in exchange, to pay employees as little as possible while remaining “competitive” in the job market.

This is one factor that is driving the Education bubble. Millions of over educated idiots in debt up to their ears because employers expect a college degree in order for one to be hired to work at jobs that require no such education.

That could be “wage theft.”

Or it could be something else entirely.

Technically, every job that I’ve had requires a 4 year degree. However, I’m great at building networking relationships and bold enough to tell employers that I am better than most of their “degreed” employees. I then set to prove that I am and, in most, cases accomplish this.
I have held several jobs that “require” a Masters and prior experience as a Major or Colonel in the Military. Yet, I have outperformed many of the folks who actually meet these requirements.  I can’t say that I’m a genius or all that special.

I believe that corporations expect too much and give too little in return.  Making matters worse is the US public education system is not designed to produce leaders or trail blazers. Nearly all of American brilliance forges ahead despite of and not because of the education system of America.   It’s all a sham designed to produce fodder for the Corporate War Machine.

This is my opinion. That is all.

Black Leaders in America and the Race Card

Image

 

Attorney General Eric Holder, who has suggested that critics of the Obama administration are motivated by race and referred to America as a “nation of cowards” on race issues while blasting Americans who resist more gun control laws, suggested that those opposed to President Barack Obama’s policy agenda of “fundamental transformation” are quietly prejudiced.

 

This idea that one cannot disagree with a Black President without being a racist is why I would think twice before ever voting for another Black President.  I have witnessed this dynamic time and time again when a Black person has been called to lead.  It doesn’t matter whether the Black person is hired to lead a College Basketball team or elected to lead a State.   If one does not agree with said Black persons policies or if one does not believe that said Black Coach is leading that program forward or simply winning enough, one is automatically labeled a racist.

Why would I wish to place myself at the mercy of the race-baiters by electing or hiring a Black official?  It has been the same with every Black leader whom I have witnessed in America.  Ralph Nagin was accused of corruption.  All of his accusers were labeled racist.  A few years later, Nagin was caught red handed.  Has an apology been issued by the race-baiters?  No.  Have the race-baiters acknowledged that they were incorrect and that Nagin was actually corrupt?  No!

Tubby Smith could not recruit well enough or coach well enough to keep the University of Kentucky Basketball program in contention for the National Title.  Kentucky underwent it’s longest Final Four drought under Tubby Smith.  Players were not consistently being drafted in the NBA.  When drafted, guys like Rondo and Prince were under-rated because of the Tubby Smith Ball Line D system.  Tubby was no Rupp.  He was no Pitino.  He was no Calipari.  

Last year, I criticized Calipari because I thought that he had his team underachieving.  There were no cries of racism.  I was merely called spoiled or an idiot.  Any time that I criticized Tubby Smith during his tenure, I was labeled a racist even when Tubby Smith had made an obvious mistake.  For instance, when he pulled a player from the foul line early and caused UK to be given a technical foul which cost the team the game, I balked and critiqued the boneheaded move.  Even so, I was called a racist.  

I see this with any issue involving a Black leader.  One cannot be honest about Black leaders in America.  For to be honest and to criticize them is to automatically be labeled a racist.

Now, we have Anthony Holder telling us that we cannot disagree with Barack Obama.  If we do not march in lock step with Obama, we are surely racists.  Never mind that the economy is stagnant.  That’s not Obama’s fault.  I guess it’s Whitey’s fault.  Never mind that they actually tried to cover up Benghazi and PC sterilize it when they really didn’t need to do so.  Never mind that Holder is attempting to establish more stringent gun control.  It’s not the policies or the outcomes with which I disagree.  According to Holder, it’s simply the color of Obama’s skin that causes me to disagree with Obama and believe him to be nothing more than another puppet for the Banking Oligarchy.

I fully realize that prejudice exists in America for it exists the world over.  Prejudice, racism, bigotry — these will exist as long as two humans exist in the universe and are vying for control of finite land and resources.  This is a part of human nature.  We segregate ourselves willingly.  We do so eagerly.  

America is separate from Canada and Mexico.  People who speak Spanish segregate themselves from folks who speak Arabic.  Those who associate themselves as Pushtoon willingly segregate themselves from those who identify as Tajik and Hazara.  Muslims eagerly segregate themselves from Christians.  Sometimes, we separate violently such as the great rift between Pakistan and India in 1949.  

Politically, I disagree with Obama as much as I disagreed with George W. Bush.  Yet, I am a racist for disagreeing with Obama and not a racist for disagreeing with Bush.  I thought Guantanamo should be closed and the prisoners either tried or deported back to their home nations.  I disagree with universal wiretapping.  I disagreed with bailing out banks.  I disagree with gun control.  I disagree with the corporate welfare state pushed by both Obama and Bush.  I disagree with the criminally neglect energy policies of Obama and Bush.  I disagree with the fascist and statist War on Drug policies of the puppets of the DNC and GOP.

When I disagreed with Bush, Republicans merely called me a “liberal.”  When I disagree with Obama, Democrats call me a racist.

This state of affairs cannot continue.  This nation, America, was built with a guarantee that I could disagree with my government.  That I could protest my government.  That I could petition and assemble peaceably to inform my government that I was displeased with their performance.

Yet, with a Black President, if I show my displeasure, I am automatically labeled a radical.  A hate criminal.  A potential or real terrorist.  A Racist and a Bigot.

This cannot continue.  There is no honest dialogue allowed when this is the rule in all conversations concerning Black leaders.

Michelle Obama: Let Them Eat Cake

Michelle Obama:  Let Them Eat Cake

How do Barry and Michelle justify to themselves these extravagant vacations while millions go hungry and hundreds of thousands go homeless?

Democrats speak of helping the poor and caring for humanity.

The waste of the Obamas could have fed and housed thousands upon thousands.

Is this the Hope and Change on which Mr. Obama ran his campaign for the Presidency?

I call it hypocrisy.

I see no difference between Bush and Obama except that Bush vacationed at home and the Obamas enjoy travelling the world in the citizen’s dime.

Obamacare Whistles Past the Train Yard

Ozombies standing at the Obaminable Care Train Station

Ozombies standing at the Obaminable Care Train Station

To the whining, illiterate Democrats out there:

This is not a comparison of Obamacare and the Holocaust/Nazi Train rides:

“Democrats bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for Obamacare is like Germans bragging about the number of manditory sign ups for “train rides” for Jews in the 40s.”

In this comparison, the subjects of comparison are Democrats and Germans.

The Tennessee Senator is likening Democratic bragging to German bragging.

He is not likening or comparing Obamacare with the holocaust or to “train rides.”

Apparently, Democrats have comprehension issues which explains why they voted for Obama, Carter, Kerry, Mondale, etc.

However I disagree with the Senator. I would liken Democrats to Mao’s minions during the Great Leap Forward not to Nazis. Democrats have always identified with the communists and socialists. This is their preferred oppressive style. They prefer slow, indirect murder of the masses disguised as cultural egalitarianism or “progress” to straight out undisguised murder based on hatred or supremacy.

Though, Democrats do believe in their own supremacy and Democrats are extremely hateful.  In this, I see no difference between the average Democrat and the average Republican. They exist as two sides of the same hateful, self aggrandizing coin.  Each believes that they are victims of the other and each believes wholeheartedly that they know the true path. Each party and it’s respective minions is willing to sacrifice all others as a means to achieve their good and noble ends and in this way paves the paths to hell with their good and honest intentions.

Leaving the rest of us to hell on earth.

Instead,  I’m hoping that the GOP and DNC burn in hell.  May the GoDs make it so.

Secessionist Puppetry

 

 

When it comes to other nation-states, the Left seems to be all for secession. However, in America, the Left is pro-Centralized State and against secession.

The Left prefers, instead, to hold people in a union against their will. When the subject of secession is broached in America, the Left cries “redneck” and asks; “how’d that work out for the South?”

Why the double standard?

Americans, where freedom and liberty are supposed to be the standard bearer, are, according to the left, not accorded freedom to choose association on the Nation-State level. This privilege is only for Serbians, Kosovars, Albanians, Macedonians, Ukrainians.

However, even in these instances, these peoples are only allowed to enter into secessionist activities if they are seen to be oppressed by European Whiteness and Christianity.

Apparently, White people and Christians, or even those loosely associated with Whiteness and Christianity, are no longer allowed to be free unless said freedom is pre-approved by the Western Leftists.

I think it is time to put down the Left. Unfortunately, the right is hideously contorted into absolutist fundamentalism and the independents in America are too dysfunctional to take a stance on any matter.

The Center of America is too idle or too easily swayed to comprehend that neither the right nor the left are looking out for their liberty or rights.

The American Political Parties represent a mere 40% or less of Americans. More than that, the American political parties true loyalties lie only with lobbying corporations and not with the American people. Corporations have chosen sides with the GOP and/or the DNC against America and Americans. Yet, there is a whole class of people in the middle who are neither Left nor Right. The Wars in America are between two parties that are run by monied interest. America is in the middle of this war and is victim of this war.

What can be done about this? Who is willing to stand up against the GOP, the DNC and their Banking & Corporate masters?  We have not had a President of, by and for the people since before the Gilded Age.  There will not be a National leader under the banner of either party who will stand for the people.  The GOP and DNC stand for Corporations.

It will be left for the people and these people will be accused by the GOP/DNC puppets of being extremists and terrorists.  Anyone brave enough to stand up to the system will be persecuted.  These persons will be vilified.  All GOP and DNC “patriots” will oppose them.  One has to believe that with 60% of Americans not truly identifying with either the GOP or the DNC that the majority of Americans believe that we are heading down a wrong path.  Yet, this 60% has no voice.

Where is our voice?  Who can stand up to the puppet masters?

America’s Corrupt Political Class and their War on Freedom

rapjust

 

The only way to end this is to go to a one vote policy. Each person gets one vote.

This will entail taking the money out of politics. Money is not speech. Money is bribery.

Every politician who takes campaign donations from any source other than individuals should be impeached for their unethical practices. That which is legal is not always ethical just as that which is illegal is not always unethical. Many of our laws in America amount to no more than legalization of corruption. Many of our laws amount to little more than legislatively outlawing beneficial substances such as Hemp based on corrupt influences.

Take, for instance, GMO corn vs hemp. Hemp could save human beings millions. Hemp would be good for the environment or not as harmful as chopping down trees. However, we have corporations in America which would lose money and whole industries that would go out of business if we switched to hemp. Hemp would benefit millions of Americans.

Conversely, GMO corn benefits a few billionaires such as the Monsanto gang of thugs. GMO corn causes huge problems for small farms and farmers in that, if one GMO genetically altered seeds fall into a small farmers crop, that farmer is legally liable to pay fees to Monsanto.

That should be the other way around. If GMO corn seed or seed of any type infects the crops of a farmer close to the Monsanto fields, Monsanto should be liable to the farmer for spreading their disease ridden pestilence.

GMOs profit the few at the expense of the many. Why? Because of bribes which are legally termed “campaign donations.”

The FCC supposedly owns the airwaves. Each candidate running for office should be alloted two weekly 15 minute time slots. That is all. Each politician should be allowed a website and allowed to create a facebook and twitter account. Each politician should be made to conduct town hall meetings to explain their platform.

No politician should be allowed to take monies from Corporations.

No SuperPacs should be allowed. These SuperPacs should be legislatively banned.

If a commercial is aired in support of a candidate, the sponsoring entity should be made plain. At the bottom of the screen, there should be, in bold, the Corporate Logos and Names of each sponsor.

This would make plain why a candidate is being sponsored.

No corporation should be able to directly or indirectly donate campaign funds to a political candidate.

It is time to take the corruption out of politics. It is time that we have a 3rd and 4th party in America. It is time for real transparency. Not the faux Obama Hope and Change transparency. It is time to hold politicians accountable. If that means jailing a President after an impeachment and trial, fine. Good.

I don’t care to what party a candidate pretends to be loyal. At this time, they are all loyal to the Party of Greed. Yes, even Obama.

Less than half of America believes that the political parties are good for this nation. Less than half of America are loyal to the DNC and GOP.

How are these two parties representative of America if they cannot, will not and will never represent more than half of the populace.

This is not Democracy. This is not representation. The only “people” being represented in today’s America are the Banks and Corporations.

Yet, individuals amounting to roughly 40% of America believe that the political parties are who is needed to run this country.

From what I can see, these partisans and their corrupt parties are running America into the ground.

The real traitors in America are not Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden. The real traitors are members of and voters for the GOP and DNC.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

“So it should be no surprise that “follow the money” beginning at the local level should extend to the formulation of US foreign policy, where money also talks. Adelson wants a war? He just might get it if he backs the right GOP horse. And don’t think for a second that a President Hillary will be any different. She also has monied interests behind her who wouldn’t mind seeing Iran get its comeuppance. Where is the peace candidate? Looking for money”.

Gratuitous Sex to lure visitors

Gratuitous Sex to lure visitors

I can call out a white male on any issue. I can call a white male “the original ape” as Lincoln was called by Seward in the 1860 election. I can disagree with a white male on any issue. I have the freedom to say anything about a white male and I have the freedom to disagree with a while male on any issue. I can even NOT capitalize “white” and “male” and not be called a bigot or a racist.

However, if I disagree with a Black Male, I’m a racist. If I were to call a Black Male “the original Ape,” I would be crucified.  If I disagree with a Female of any race, I’m automatically termed a bigot, a misogynist or a sexist.  God help me if I were to call a Black Female “the original Ape.” The firestorm of controversy would force me to flee America.

This is unfortunate. I know many capable persons who are neither white nor male. Yet, I fear for my freedom if I vote for these persons or they are elected to office. One cannot question a person who is neither white nor male.  It is simply not done. One must simply genuflect and nod in gracious, absentminded servility.

If Obama were to pronounce the sky green, the Left would hail his brilliance and anyone who dared disagree would be called a racist.

This, apparently, is equality.
