Political Commentary & Cartoons

Monday, April 8, 2013


We hear about the "racist" TEA Party and many people talk like they believe it.  The people in the following picture show what is real.

The Diverse Face of Conservatism - Darrell Issa, Jan Brewer, Ben Carson, Michelle Malkin, Ted Cruz, Star Parker, Dennis Miller, Nikki Haley, Herman Cain, Dana Perino, Clarence Thomas, Susana Martinez, Andrew Napolitano, Dana Loesch, Tim Scott, Megyn Kelly, Allen West, Hannah Giles, Bill Whittle, Jodi Miller, Thomas Sowell, S.E. Cupp, Kevin Jackson, Ann Coulter, Marco Rubio, Mia Love, Jon Lovitz, Condaleeza Rice, Michael Ramirez, Mary Matalin, Dinesh D'Souza, Victoria Jackson, Andrew Breitbart, Rosie Johnson, Ben Shapiro, Kira Ayn Davis, Bobby Jindal, Deneen Borelli, Rand Paul, Laura Ingraham, Alfonzo Rachel, Alveda King, Kelsey Grammer, Laura Schlessinger, Matt Drudge, Jan Morgan, Tony Dungy, Janine Turner, Fred Dalton Thompson, Ted Nugent, Paul Ryan, Alan Keyes, Mark Steyn, Michael Medved, Greg Gutfeld

The AWFUL (*1) Administration counted on its supporters being big enough IDIOTs (*2) that they would look at the Americans in the TEA Party and be so blinded by their programming that they believed the TEA Party to be racist.  Pathetic, but true.  

Like KGB defector, Yuri Bezmenov said in his 1985 interview,  you will be able to show the programmed Americans that white is white and black is black and they will not believe you.  It came true.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-ZQbJHagx4&feature=related

George Orwell, in 1948, wrote 1984 and talked about Double Speak.  We are experiencing a major redefinition of the words in our language which seems to be for an obvious purpose.  Communications depends upon precise definitions of the word which we use.  A doctor calling for a scalpel does not anticipate being handed a hammer and this is true throughout many disciplines.  

“How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!”  --  Samuel Adams

Michael Ramirez, the IBD cartoonist, shows an obvious example of one of the redefinitions -

The current focus on immigration diverting attention from the reality that we do have a legal, in need of major revision, immigration program.  It is being packaged in an emotional rather than logical promotion.  A sovereign nation has the ability to control people coming across its borders and if it is so desirable a destination, preserving what makes it that appealing is not something which should be ignored.  Renaming illegal aliens which is a concise description pointing out our need to address the issues rather than actually dealing with the issues avoids the problem.  Renaming illegal aliens to obscure what is real and existent, arguably to the detriment of America in maintaining a way for criminals or terrorists to enter, creates a danger to our country.  

Why would CAP push so hard for the obfuscation?  Possibly because a major funding source commented, “It is easy to destroy a country’s currency. It is very difficult to detroy their sovereignty.”  --  George Soros  Don't we, as Americans, have an obligation to preserve the America worth people leaving all that they have in other countries because it is better in America rather than not maintain the value of America?

FreedomWorks is a group that is doing something about America's path today at http://www.freedomworks.org/

“On every question of construction, [let us] carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”  -   The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, Edited by Albert Ellery Bergh

Number One Priority? Obama's Actually Had 12 of Those Since Taking Office | Media Research Center

Number One Priority? Obama's Actually Had 12 of Those Since Taking Office | Media Research Center    "JOBS WILL BE MY NUMBER ONE PRIORITY"  Psy Ops = Marketing and the Progressives have it down to a science.  Tell the gullible that ##### "is my number one priority" (LIKE JOBS or THE DEFICIT?) and then distract them with the shiny objects such as gun control (not including Fast and Furious), women's right to contraceptives (intentionally avoiding its not the right, but rather who pays for it), or Terrorism is alive and well (Bengazi set up and failed to protect Americans from terrorists and lied about it for furthering their political agenda), partially due to our promotion of Hamas type democracy wins assisted by the State Media's focus on Lance Armstrong type issues.  It takes a thoughtful and educated population to protect themselves from the dangers our Founding Fathers foresaw and gave US what we needed to maintain a country envied by the world as evidenced by the flow of immigrants.

It is simple to check the premise of the presentation linked below this paragraph and to do the math - no calculator needed, just common sense.  Is it better to feel like we are a good, compassionate country as we fall into an age old trap or to honor our Founding Fathers by using the protections which they gave US and the warnings which they wrote to protect US from soft tyranny?    


"In general the art of government consists of taking as much money as possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other" - - Voltaire (17 64)  

The math doesn't add up and that is why we were created as a Representative Republic - men are not angels.  This destructive strategy has gone on for a very long time.  Note the decline of America as an example of what a free people can accomplish verses the graph of dependency presented in the linked presentation above.  There is a way to reverse it.   The decrease in our position on the economic freedom index    


gives a reason why we have yet to recover from this recession, just as FDR's policies prolonged our recovery from The Great Depression.  The government collects less revenue as it increases regulation and tax rates.  “I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started. ... And an enormous debt to boot!”  -- Henry Morgenthau Jr.—pal, lunch companion and loyal secretary of the Treasury to President Franklin D. Roosevelt.  

"The national budget must be balanced. The public debt must be reduced; the arrogance of the authorities must be moderated and controlled. Payments to foreign governments must be reduced. If the nation doesn't want to go bankrupt, people must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance." -- Marcus Tullius Cicero, 55 BC     Quotation #23141 from Rand Lindsly's Quotations

The promotion of dependency is an assault on America using the well intentioned, naive American as a weapon against a unique form of government.  Cloward and Piven, contributors to the Progressive strategy, suggested increasing demands upon the system to the point of creating such a financial crisis that the government can be transformed into a collective form.  We have more warning of this now than we did of the Fannie-Freddie 2008 collapse and that was predicted years before it happened.  

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away men’s initiative and independence.
You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.—Abraham Lincoln  

The acceptance speeches of Reagan and of Obama gave US a preview of the results of their term in office.  Our country’s future depends upon US holding our leaders accountable.

“We should measure welfare’s success by how many people leave welfare, not by how many are added.” - Ronald Reagan 

Is there any explanation for the nationwide, aggressive campaign to recall Governor Scott Walker after he turned Wisconsin around other than the Collective care more about their power than the pain and suffering their fight to keep power inflicts upon the people?

Is The Declaration of Independence a Checklist for Today?

The Founding Fathers studied history and their insight into human frailty is the reason that they gave US the structure and warnings in their writings, should we care to read them and objectively analyze conditions today in light of their wisdom.  I also add a link to a list of the Founding Fathers, who they were and their fate, along with a slave's tribute to George Washington.  It would do some people good to check what they hear against what was real and to judge the purveyors of lies for what they are.

I put the following quotations in an order appropriate for thinking about how my references to specific portions of The Declaration of Indpendence apply to our country's direction today.

"That which we obtain too easily, we esteem too lightly. It is dearness only which gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price on its goods."  --  Thomas Paine

 "Posterity, you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that ever I took half the pains to preserve it." John Adams

"We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."  --  John Adams

Rather than allow my point to be sidetracked into a discussion of religion's role in our development as a nation, I would ask those of you who believe otherwise to view the Judeo - Christian foundation of America as a Logical Construct and read this in light of that construct's principles.  While listening to my wife read The Declaration of Independence aloud to begin our July 4th day of gratitude for those who have paid the price in different ways for the creation and preservation of this nation, I thought about how appropriate this document is to our political conditions today.  That is the purpose of this post.

Would the Anti-Federalist papers now be seen by history to have not been heeded enough?  One final reference to clarify the purpose of this post is a paragraph from

The Federalist No. 51

The Structure of the Government Must Furnish the Proper Checks and Balances Between the Different Departments

Independent Journal
Wednesday, February 6, 1788
[James Madison]

 "But the great security against a gradual concentration of the several powers in the same department, consists in giving to those who administer each department the necessary constitutional means and personal motives to resist encroachments of the others. The provision for defense must in this, as in all other cases, be made commensurate to the danger of attack. Ambition must be made to counteract ambition. The interest of the man must be connected with the constitutional rights of the place. It may be a reflection on human nature, that such devices should be necessary to control the abuses of government. But what is government itself, but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions."

This post asks, "How appropriate are these sections of The Declaration of Independence to today?"  I believe that Americans today ignore a duty which we have to the world. 
Why would we as a unique and exceptional country - look at our accomplishments per our time in history and the fact that the Fence Test shows that people would give up what they have and, in some cases, risk their life to get here rather than do whatever they have to to escape from here - abdicate our duty to provide an example for and assist the rest of the world being more like US than US sinking into the pool of nations unequal to US. We have, in my opinion, as our cost of admission to this incredible country, an obligation to protect the gift which we received and to pass it on to those who follow US, whether they are Americans or citizens of another nation. The American Free Enterprise system of rewarding risk and endeavor when it succeeds raises far more people to a higher standard of living than some central planner in a Collective who does not suffer the consequences of his decisions.  Private Enterprise is Self Cleansing and Government is like a Cancer if it is allowed to Grow.
A few observations in the beginning and then the appropriateness of the Declarations.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty

Are we involved in a choice between personal sovereignty and choosing to cede personal sovereignty for a caretaker - are we capable of governing ourselves or do we need a central planner to make our choices? 
 and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
An observation that humans are both impulsive and government must not be easily changed, but they are also like frogs in a pot brought to a slow boil and will allow bad things to happen if they have become accustomed to them.
 But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

Does this apply to:
1.  our border security and the Executive Branch's choice to not enforce the Federal Law.
2.  the Black Panther voter intimidation case
3.  the approval of the issuance of a $10,000 bounty for an American citizen, dead or alive - if the government didn't approve of it, they would have prosecuted those who offered it

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

Does this apply to: 
1.  Creating an immigration law which is more efficient and enforced so that people who want to leave their homeland for a better life in America have a clearer, more efficient system under which they are processed rather than facing the reality that illegal entry is more effective. 
2.  Opposing SB1070 - Arizona's attempt to defend its citizens because the federal government was not effective in doing so -  federal responsibilty to defend borders
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

This was the main thing which brought the appropriateness of the Founding Father's warnings to US today:T
1.  The Obama Tax and Regulate US to Death Bill
     a.  the creation of 159 bureacracies
     b.  the creation of 47 new agencies
     c.  16,500 new IRS agents enforcing our "enjoyment of what was sold to US as a "Right"?"
     d.  20 new taxes
     e.  the creation of an immense amount of issues that create a need for the employment of attorneys and their staff as well as a tremendous amount of negotiation or litigation opportunities.  The Congress and Executive Branch did not do their job or we would not be exposed to this disasterous result.
     f.  This affects everyone from a jobseeker who is less likely to be employed in light of an employer's analysis of the cost of wages, benefits which are negotiated or enforced through regulation, cost of compliance with the government regulators and company overhead for the employer.  The wages of the employee or the cost of the goods and services must be increased to pay for the added cost imposed under this Act.
     g.  Public employment which is increased by this Act pay taxes which discounts the actual cost of wages, benefits, and overhead of management and facilities, but do not create.  Government is OVERHEAD, not PRODUCTION just as business compliance costs are not income producing, but do add to the price of the goods and services of that employer.  Public employees are paid for by COLLECTED Tax Revenue.  It takes several private enterprise employees paying taxes to support the cost = wages and overhead of one public employee.
2.  the NLRB used to hinder Boeing employing people in a Right to Work state
3.  Attaaaaack Watch

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

1.  there is some speculation in this regard with executive order and acquisition of arms - I am not familar enough to do anything but note that as a point for another time

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

1.  the call for a civilian force equally well funded, armed and trained as compared to our military raised some issues in light of the history of the world post the Revolutionary War.  This redundancy which would place more control under the Executive Branch over an army is not only a waste of resources, but a step along the road paved with the mistakes of history.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

1.  Do some of the above ring of AGENDA 21 or Climate Control  or the International Small Arms Treaty of the United Nations supported to a large extent by the United States of America and seeking to erode our sovereignty by having US voluntarily cede sovereignty through our agreement to these and to our reference to International Law.
Why would we as a unique and exceptional country - look at our accomplishments per our time in history and the fact that the Fence Test shows that people would give up what they have and, in some cases, risk their life to get here  rather than do whatever they have to to escape from here - abdicate our duty to provide an example and assist the rest of the world being more like US than US sinking into the pool of nations unequal to US.  We have, as our cost of admission to this incredible country, an obligation to maintain the gift which we received and to pass it on to those who follow US, whether they are Americans or citizens of another nation.  The American Free Enterprise system of rewarding risk and endeavor when it succeeds raises far more people to a higher standard of living than some central planner in a Collective who does not suffer the consequences of his decisions.

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
1.  disparaging groups like the TEA Party with false statements while supporting OWS which obstructs business and costs municipalities money to clean up after them, inciters like Farrakhan or the New Black Panthers calling for killing white babys and the flow of white blood in the streets.  Issuing false warnings about the TEA Party and ignoring the flagrant Leftists CONDONES & SUPPORTS them. 

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

These Founding Fathers are unappreciated by many because a tyrant cannot control an educated populace.  Compare what is said by the Left to reality and judge those purveyors of fantasy for what they truly are = political insurgents on a mission to attack US from within as has been done with well intentioned people duped by those exhibiting Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry as they seek control to form a Collective Elite .

I reference a post describing who and the fate of the Founding Fathers, a portion of which states,
Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

There is an answer, the first part of which states, "Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons in the Revolutionary Army, another had two sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War."

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor."


Read the Eulogy of George Washington by a slave, Richard Allen, and judge those who talk about the Founding Fathers being rich slave owners in light of who has the TRUTH


I will end this long post about our short lived country's founding with,

NUMBER: 1593
AUTHOR: Benjamin Franklin (1706–90)
QUOTATION: “Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?”

“A Republic, if you can keep it.”
ATTRIBUTION: The response is attributed to BENJAMIN FRANKLIN—at the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, when queried as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation—in the notes of Dr. James McHenry, one of Maryland’s delegates to the Convention.

McHenry’s notes were first published in The American Historical Review, vol. 11, 1906, and the anecdote on p. 618 reads: “A lady asked Dr. Franklin Well Doctor what have we got a republic or a monarchy. A republic replied the Doctor if you can keep it.” When McHenry’s notes were included in The Records of the Federal Convention of 1787, ed. Max Farrand, vol. 3, appendix A, p. 85 (1911, reprinted 1934), a footnote stated that the date this anecdote was written is uncertain."

We live in a complicated world with too much to do in our own lives and the politicians are making an incredible mess because we trusted them to take care of running our country. Benjamin Franklin warned US that this would happen if we allowed political office to be a paid position. There are dangers in having only those wealthy enough to support themselves have the power as well because that would give them the ability to increase their power. This is not a solution to that issue, but, rather a warning that we are giving up our ability to deal with that DANGER.

Americans became disenchanted with capitalism in the '30s and the outcome of their decision to leave a Free Enterprise America for a better life is recounted in The Foresake-An American Tragedy in Stalin's Russia. Why would we allow the power of government with the current technology to increase to the point that it could do whatever the elite wanted to do and the people became powerless?


I received an email dated 07/10/2011 which I have not been able to confirm, but it is indicative of the FCC push for control of the internet and the attack rather than debate tactics of this government. It would be far more productive to have open debates about the issues with fact checking to critique the debate at the end, not the opinion of pundants.

There are enough people aware of the Bernay's, Alinsky and Cloward-Piven tactics that the class warfare by an administration with the !HUGIST! political warchest ever funded, Hollywood production campaign, an inaugeral which was beyond imagination requiring an airport be dedicated to PRIVATE JETs for the ?poor? people who supported Obama to attend the inaugeral, the Goldman-Sachs/Fannie Mae/Gore Group joint investment in CCX, a climate gate scandal, GE receiving an EPA exemption to have an advantage over the competition, the intimidation of people investing their money for their retirement (not depending upon the government totally) being intimidated by Obama himself as well as his RAT squad (Rent A Thug)to relinquish their legal priority to name a few things.

Think about the two government recent involvements in private enterprise forcing bad business choices which weaken the business. Does this encourage a business to remain in America and employ American workers or does it clearly state that the goverment doesn't care whether they do well, much less survive, or not. The Great Depression has some examples of this same government imposition of the government mandates putting businesses into the graveyard. Policies allow or deny business to expand and employ American workers. Look at the unemployment rate over history and not that the government is not the solution. Two examples are:

1. NLRB attacking Boeing, a major American employer, to prevent their employing 2,000 workers in South Carolina in a $1,000,000,000 plant which is already built.

2. DOJ settlement with Citizens Republic Bancorp Inc which appears to be enforcement of the lending practices which resulted in the major financial disaster of 2008 by Fannie-Freddie disasterous underwriting and securitizing the loans to push the disaster off onto investors. It is also a way to extort money from private enterprise which could have been used for their expansion or improving their ratios.

Email had the following message and pictures:

Obama Signs
(88 miles south of Seattle)

Northbound on I-5 (88 miles south ofSeattle)...

The federal government is now petitioning to have these signs removed or Washington state will be denied additional monies for interstate highways.

The State of Washington replied, they will secede from the Union rather than be intimidated. These are a matter of free speech paid for by a private citizen.

It seems the Obama government uses intimidation and ignores the first amendment when they want to silence someone.

The tape linked below is a preview of an attack on the American economy starting with J P Morgan Chase in May of 2011. Has Beck been suckered or is what a lot of us have feared been better documented. One of the principles of propaganda is to deny others the ability to quote the propagandist in a lie and to mix in enough truth that people will lie to themselves. The words of this former SEIU executive fit that if this tape is real. The Pentagon report suggesting that there was a possibility of an economic terrorist attack on the American economy a few years ago might indicate that this is not the first attack on the American economy.

Beck has requested statements from the White House and FBI for his show this evening.

A tape of a meeting in which a May 2011 assault on America’s economy was acquired by Beck and copies were forwarded to Chase, a chosen target, and to the Department of Justice.
Steve Lerner, a high level organizer and former SEIU leader, is one of the speakers on this tape in which a plan to create economic chaos is outlined. One of the participants refers to Cloward – Pivens http://cloward-piven.com/
Quote: Cloward-Piven is a strategy for forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The strategy was first proposed in 1966 by Columbia University political scientists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven as a plan to bankrupt the welfare system and produce radical change. Sometimes known as the "crisis strategy" or the the "flood-the-rolls, bankrupt-the-cities strategy," the Cloward-Piven approach called for swamping the welfare rolls with new applicants - more than the system could bear. It was hoped that the resulting economic collapse would lead to political turmoil and ultimately socialism.

Some of these people are reaching internationally and there is enough awareness that they have come more out in the open in spite of Lerner’s admonition that the union must not be connected to organizing this assault.

Listen to this recording or watch Glenn Beck TV to see what he actually shows and states. Then listen to those who discuss what he shows and states and it will give a clear understanding of who stands where. Note that I did not state my pre-judgement because each of us is obligated to gather information, vette it and share it with each other. By our vetting the information and sharing the results with each other we can test our analysis and tune up how we make our decisions.


I have a good comparison of the two sides by them. One is shown to school children and the other is a description of the benefit of a free enterprise America by an entrepenuer:




Some Americans rejected capitalism and relocated to Russia during the Great Depression. The better life which they sought is described in, “the book, The Forsake: An American Tragedy In Stalin’s Russia by Tim Tzouliadis is a stark and tragic account of what happened in the 1930’s to thousands of Americans as a result of not knowing what communism was all about.”

How much do we care about our fellow Americans who are out of work? We are all affected by this issue because employment produces collected tax revenue which supports public employees and pays the necessary overhead of government. It affects every one of US from new born to retired right now and in our future. I care enough ot watch both sides and objectively analyze the solutions offered? We have that opportunity with the

10-2-10 RALLY

I will be challenging what I believe as a Conservative who looks at this much manpower and money and wonders why they do not take all of that manpower and the money those groups control and form businesses to compete against the “Rich People” businesses one at a time which, if they are right would snowball. I am a firm believer in Hayek over Keynes and so far believe that history bears out that conclusion as I see Cuba and Russia laying off public employees. I have no idea what the message will be at this rally, but there is a huge rally by the Left which is supported by groups including the Unions and Communist Party USA described by One Nation as, “This movement includes human and civil rights organizations, unions and trade associations, nonprofit organizations, youth and student groups, religious and other faith groups, educational, peace, environmental, and ethnic associations, and any other groups and individuals who are committed to pulling our country back together now.
These are some of the more than 400 organizations, representing tens of thousands of individuals who have endorsed the One Nation Working Together campaign. Join this historic moment:”

We have been warned by several sources from world news to the United Nations which has issued two reports on the employment problem worldwide and the resulting unrest which is predicted. Do we want to choose a way which avoids unrest in America? There is an article with links to the reports at

It starts, “The UN's International Labor Organization issued a report warning of social unrest in the wake of ongoing unemployment worldwide.”

American workers are still unemployed in incredibly large numbers for a long period of time inflicting:

1. decreased ability to make mortgage payments and keep their home, much less cover their cost of living

2. a lack of access to employer connected health insurance – I favor portable non-employer connected health insurance, but employer connected is immediately available

3. diminishing skills and attitude

4. lower collected tax revenue driving up national debt and jeopardizing the entitlements currently in effect

5. and certain groups are singled out

Delphi workers are shut out as UAW workers are given a Health Care Tax exemption for Cadillac Health Insurance and their pension plans are protected with tax dollars


Andrew Breitbart questioned an entire group of protestors about their level of knowledge and ended up with a discussion with two protestors at a meeting where he was scheduled to speak. He found two rational people in the group, but this points out the need to be in rational debate rather than emotional, bumper stickers types of labels. Formulating a strategy, monitoring the results and correcting course deviations is basic management and our economic strategy results without addressing things like Fannie – Freddie appear to need some tune ups.


What would you do is a fair question and my answer is more involved, but based on the ideas in the following three videos and my faith in the American individual who, unfettered by overwhelming government controls such as the Health Reform requirement for business to 1099 anyone paid over $500.00 which diverts time and money from production to subservience. Seems to me that that requirement increases the need for psychiatric care of American Producers to deal with the frustration inflicted by a clueless or sadistic beauracracy.

This man employs people who have health insurance and makes a very simple suggestion. He is also expanding his foreign operation because China is more predictable than the USA at this time. That is the reason that business people who want to expand and make more money, but cannot forecast with any certainty in a time when Congress fails to create a budget and make a decision on the Bush tax cuts are not expanding and employing people..


Woodrow Wilson’s Progressive policies created the potential for a depression and we instead ended up with the Roaring 20s, a time of prosperity and invention under a Conservative administration. Coolidge was far from a brilliant orator, but his economic philosophy put America in economic overdrive. Compare this to testimony before a Congressional committee => “I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started. ... And an enormous debt to boot!” -- Henry Morgenthau Jr.—pal, lunch companion and loyal secretary of the Treasury to President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Woodrow Wilson had Edward L. Bernays, a propaganda master admired by Gerbil during WWII. Look at the following video and ask why we have a climate of diminished American business activity with an anti – business attitude by groups which have the talent and money to compete, but choose to be parasitic instead. This is shown to children – are they being taught critical thinking or being programmed.

Ask yourself why we would have a moratorium on Gulf oil exploration by Americans as we fund Mexico to do what Aemrican workers are prohibited from doing. We have also backed George Soros/Petrobras for Brazilian oil exploration while American workers are kept down. WHY?

which while not political is an indicator of what a lot of US would like to see, honoring the military who protect US and looking for values and character.

We have American workers unable to get employment and there is reason. The two very different philosophies create TWO VERY DIFFERENT RESULTS. Think about American workers, not party as you vote on November 2, 2010. Dr. Thomas Sowell has stated that he thinks that this is the most important election in American history.
