Exclusive–Palin: Holes in the Border as Big as the Holes in Their Amnesty Bill

 Just like they did with Obamacare, some in Congress intend to “Pelosi” the amnesty bill. They’ll pass it in order to find out what’s in it. And just like the unpopular, unaffordable Obamacare disaster, this pandering, rewarding-the-rule-breakers, still-no-border-security, special-interests-ridden, 24-lb disaster of a bill is not supported by informed Americans. I am an ardent supporter of legal immigration. I’m proud that our country is so desirable that it has been a melting pot making a diverse people united as the most exceptional nation on earth for over two centuries. But I join every American with an ounce of common sense insisting that any discussion about immigration must center on a secure border. The amnesty bill before the Senate is completely toothless on border security.

It's beyond disingenuous for anyone to claim that a vote for this bill is a vote for security. Look no further than the fact that Senator Rubio and amnesty supporters nixed Senator Thune’s amendment that required the feds to finally build part of a needed security fence before moving forward on the status of illegal immigrants who’ve already broken the law to be here. And if shooting down the border fence wasn't proof enough, they blew another chance by killing Senator Paul’s “Trust But Verify” amendment which required the completion of a fence in five years and required Congress to vote on whether the border is actually secure before furthering any immigration measures. And then they blew it yet again, nixing Senator Cornyn’s “Results” amendment, which also required border enforcement standards. Now the Senate’s pro-amnesty crowd is offering a fig leaf to security via the Corker-Hoeven Amendment, but this is really nothing more than empty promises. It’s amnesty right now and border security… eh, well, someday.

If this bill was genuinely concerned with border security, it might include practical solutions for those states that live with the problem every single day. Pass-through grants could be given to border states to actually build a fence. The most responsive and responsible level of government is the most local, and since governors accept pass-throughs all the time, this is a workable solution. We could also free up more federal lands along the border to be privatized. The farmers and ranchers would have a clear incentive to keep their private property secure from the flow of illegal immigrants and/or other illegal activities trafficked across the border onto land they’d cultivate. There are plenty of other commonsense solutions, but this bill isn’t about fixing problems; it’s about amnesty at all costs.

When every commonsense, concrete, and verifiable measure to secure the border is stripped away, despite politicians’ promises, what are we supposed to rely on to ensure that our currently unsecured border will be fixed in the future? If D.C. expects us to just sit back and “trust” them despite our permanent political class and Washington bureaucrats proving themselves so very untrustworthy, then I have a bridge to somewhere in Alaska to sell them. Our government is awash in one scandal after another involving blatant lies and violations of our basic liberties, and the leader of the pack ventures out on one road trip after another to avoid accountability.

Just like they did for Obamacare, the permanent political class is sugaring this bill with one goody after another to entice certain senators to vote for it. Look no further than page 983 of the bill, which contains a special visa exemption for foreign seafood workers in the 49th state despite huge unemployment numbers in the American workforce. This is obviously a hidden favor designed to buy the votes of Alaska Senators Murkowski and Begich.

And just like Obamacare, this amnesty bill fails on every level of economic sanity and sane reform. It offers no solutions. It will barely slow the flow of illegal immigration, which means we can expect millions and millions of new illegal aliens in coming years. Sort of what happened when we passed amnesty in 1986 without securing our borders first.

According to the CBO, the bill won’t stop illegal immigration, but it will drive down wages for average hardworking Americans. These would be the same blue-collar working class voters of every ethnicity who chose to sit home in 2012 instead of turning out to vote in the swing states we needed to carry in order to stop Barack Obama’s promised “fundamental transformation” of America. I note this just as a helpful reminder to those who believe the hyperventilated new hype claiming that conservatives need to support this bill in order to win future elections. That’s 100% wrong. The crony capitalists in D.C. and their corporatist friends on Wall Street might think this amnesty boondoggle is a great idea, but the average American worker in our middle class who'll soon see lower wages is the one left out in the cold, along with those hard working immigrants who followed the rules and are working here legally.

Passing this bill with an unsecured border and within a growing welfare state under Barack Obama is economic insanity. Have people already forgotten that our bankrupt government is running up massive unsustainable deficits every year? We can’t afford to pay the piper now, much less the trillions of dollars more in welfare and entitlements for the millions who are here illegally today that will be granted this bill’s benefits. According to the Heritage Foundation, the bill provides only a temporary delay in granting illegal immigrants eligibility for all U.S. welfare and entitlement programs. We’re looking at an explosion of costs in the very near future. There is no way to pay for the added untold millions of new enrollees in these growing government programs. Pass this, Congress, and Obama will have succeeded in fundamentally transforming America.

Again, I am supportive of legal immigration and am as sympathetic as the next person to the aspirations of people who come here to work hard and live a better life than the poverty and unfree environments they left behind. So many are drawn here because we are an exceptional nation where freedom provides an equal opportunity for everyone to work hard and make something of themselves. But a key part of American exceptionalism is the rule of law. Border security is fundamental to the rule of law, as is incentivizing those who follow the legal path to citizenship instead of punishing them by promoting lawbreakers. This is non-negotiable.

It’s time our lawmakers remember that we are a sovereign nation of laws. This bill ignores that, and ignores the will of the people. The continued porous border goes against what politicians assured us was in this mountain-high bill, and in typical D.C. style it flies in the face of what many politicians campaigned on. I heard their campaign promises. You heard them, too.

It’s time for concerned Americans to flood our legislators’ phone lines with the input they need to hear from We the People. Join the mama grizzlies who are rearing up tirelessly to swat away false claims that amnesty is a good thing. Michelle Malkin rightly said the issue is not secure the border first, it’s “secure the border. Period.” Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter have also offered superb warnings on amnesty’s economic impacts to the middle class.

As the Senate moves to pass amnesty, the only bright spot in this travesty is the rallying revolution we can look forward to. For just as opposition to Obamacare became a rallying cry for the 2010 midterm elections, opposition to this fundamentally transforming amnesty bill will galvanize the grassroots in next year’s elections. And 2014 is just around the corner.

The End Of The World

Sunday, June 23, 2013 
by Daniel Greenfield 

Two years ago, the media had a prolonged belly laugh at a group that predicted the end of the world. Now media outlets from The New York Times to The New Republic to The Economist are wrestling with the question of why their own ideology's doomsday predictions are not coming to pass.

"If scientific models can’t project the last 15 years, what does that mean for their projections of the next 100?," the New Republic asks. It means that the world isn't going to end.

Even as Obama exploits Global Warming to launch a War on Affordable Energy, the doomsday environmentalists look as foolish as any other group that set a date for the end of the world, only for the world to stubbornly go on existing.

True believers in Gore would say that's the difference between science and eschatology. But when bogus science warns us of an apocalypse if we don't follow the tenets of their ideology, then how much difference is there anyway?

Of course no one expects MSNBC to do sneering reports of global warming activists freezing at a protest or Al Gore being forced to watch a count down of a solidly frozen North Pole. Such mockery is only directed at people who believe in more unpopular forms of apocalypses. At least unpopular at the broadcasting studios of Manhattan.

It's fashionable to mock religious leaders for hypocrisy, but there isn't a peep when the Vice President turned Prophet of Gaia lectures on watching our carbon footprint and then flies on jet fueled carbon wings to another concert on behalf of the planet.

Other aspiring prophets like Prince Charles, who admires poverty, but lives in privilege, are no better. Or Obama who told Americans that they couldn't heat their homes as they pleased, while keeping his thermostat up to Hawaiian standards.

If the invariably prosperous believers in Death by Global Warming really believed in the creed, wouldn't they be selling their homes and cars, and going off to live a simpler life in the Himalayan mountains. But it's easier to believe in something than to practice it.

Like all liberal social engineering projects, environmentalism is meant to change everyone's life. And there's no point in its proponents doing more than paying lip service to it, as they make it the law of the land. If Osama bin Laden could preach Islamic morality while stocking up on X rated tapes, surely Al Gore can foretell the doom of the North Pole and still take a private jet around the world.

If liberals have turned to doomsday predictions, it's because they have discovered that religion and the apocalypse can be a marvelously effective way of controlling human behavior. But their religion is materialistic, concerned with the human presence in the natural world. Even its materialism is consumeristic.

The Reds had no truck with environmentalism. To a Communist, the natural world was a mass of raw resources to be used to build socialism. But to the children of the capitalists, concerned more with what they buy, than with what they do, environmentalism restraints and directs their buying habits. As religions goes, environmentalism is the Consumer Reports of theologies.

For all the talk of apocalypse and melting poles, the environmentalists really only care about your economic activity. Buy or don't buy. But preferably buy, so long as you're buying green, or buying carbon credits along with whatever you're buying.

The sinner fills up on paper towels, but the righteous man buys paper towels with a green stamp on the box. The man of little faith may drive an SUV, and the faithful may also drive an SUV, but the faithful man's SUV has a bumper sticker warning everyone to conserve something or other. Such hypocrisies are constant, pervasive and little commented on.

What began as a movement for the responsible stewardship of the earth has been corrupted from the ethical to the fanatical. Conservationism kept humanity in the picture. Environmentalism rages at humanity. Behind its colorful drawings and its dolphin key chains is the vision of a world in which humanity and its fire sticks are the original sin.

That primal rage has been channeled and diluted into a million businesses, into countless regulations and profitable ventures. The new environmentalists are regulatory robber barons like Al Gore, green rent seeking tycoons looking to use cap and trade, and a thousand mandatory revenue streams to fleece both the faithful and the unfaithful. There is no further way to corrupt environmentalism, its existence is already an abiding corruption. For the false prophets, the lab coated peddlers of junk science and the writers dreaming up ever more fanciful depictions of the day when the oceans rise and man finds himself paddling for safety besides the polar bear, there is nothing left but the lie.

The religious apocalypse is the break between a fallen world and a better world. But in the environmental apocalypse, it is only the end. Materialistic eschatology cannot see any way past the end or any purpose for it. Only a Waterworld in which some of us develop gills and others have to learn to kayak.

The threat of their end of days is meant to badger us into bowing our heads and opening our wallets. Buy Green or the North Pole will end in 5 years. Bicycle to work or a polar bear will chew your ear off. Their end of days lacks imagination and proof. It is constantly imminent, yet never arrives. It is held to be proven so thoroughly that it can never be disproven. And who would want to disprove it, except someone who doesn't already have a grant to prove it.

There's hardly a problem in the world that the media doesn't blame on Global Warming. When it's hot, they point to Global Warming. When it's cold, they also point to Global Warming. Earthquakes,civil wars and the end of WiFi are all laid at the door of one single phenomenon. The difference between religion and science is that one is revealed truth and the other is theory. But when men and women in lab coats start predicting the end of days if the heretics don't repent and cast out their incandescent light bulbs and SUV's, then what you have is theory as revealed truth. An experiment in eschatology.

Science requires objectivity. Combine science with ideology and you get a mandatory belief in absurdity. Everyone who self-righteously insists that global warming is science misses the point. The scientific orthodoxy of every generation has embraced ridiculous and wrongheaded theories. Science is not a pure form of revealed truth, it is the trial and error process by which we crawl toward a better understanding. A less flawed picture of the universe. Turn the scientific orthodoxy of any era into a mandatory ideology and you have killed the science and left only another belief system.

Environmentalists parade around the corpse of science on their shoulders, mount it on their walls and proclaim that science is on their side. Once you completely murder a system of using trial and error experimentation to confirm a theory, then you might as well use it as a banner on a flagpole or a trophy in your living room. But the environmentalist' science has as much relation to a living field, as the head of a dead moose mounted over a bed and breakfast's fireplace does to a living creature.

Ideology has killed science and now claims its intellectual credibility for its own. But purging dissenting scientists, burning books and silencing all critics with jeers is not science, no more than what passed for it in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany was science. It is the fanaticism of an ideology, the championing of backwardness, the exploitation of titles and terminology to silence debate and betray the ethical trust of inquiry.

The end of the world? The same people who ridicule religious people waiting for the end, are waiting for their own end of the world without any real faith in it.

Their end of the world is only another consumeristic strategy for convincing people to buy the right brands and donate to the right causes. It is as hollow as everything else.

No one will hang around with a count down clock in 2014 and wait for the North Pole to end. Not even if Gore's prediction were better known. Those who believe in Global Warming, paradoxically don't really believe that the world could actually end. They may eat up the cinematic spectacle of oceans rising, cities sinking underwater and whales doing belly flops over the Grand Canyon, but it never really touches them.

To understand why is to understand the purpose of environmentalism. Its harsh criticism of consumerism turns it into a moral activity. The Whole Foods shopper is elevated above the Wal-Mart shopper. The woman who buys sneakers made of recycled tires isn't shopping, she's engaged in an ethical communion with the earth. Environmentalism is the theology of consumerism, uplifting it rather than proscribing it, taking a cut of ordinary economic activities in exchange for its blessing.

Environmentalism is the religion of the comfortable, and the theology of the convenient. It injects a false spirituality into the materialism of the faithless. There is nothing to it but greed. From the false prophets spinning tales of the end, to scientists doing a more elevated version of the same for grant money to scribes envisioning the end for a lucrative book or movie deal. It's not the end of the world they're waiting for, but a commercial break.

Obama And His Uncontrollable Ego

June 22, 2013
By James Lewis

IRS. FBI. NSA... Under Obama they consistently exceed their previously understood legal powers. Yes, there was technical consent by the secret FISA court for massive NSA spying. In times of national threat the FISA court is a pushover; just imagine if they said "No" and we had another 9/11/01. So they drove a dagger into the U.S. Constitution rather than stand for principle, the way Chief Justice John Roberts helped damage the Constitution by voting for ObamaCare, and the Burger Court shafted the Constitution and ruined millions of young lives with unrestricted abortion.

Perhaps the most damaging Leftist assault ever was reverse discrimination to make up for white racial sins going back to the slave trade that ended in 1865; that racialist revenge narrative still drives reverse discrimination, forty years after the start of "affirmative" action. It will never end, as long as there is a penny to be made on racial blackmail.

The equal protection clause is gone. Every time the left imagines another victim group, that gaping wound in constitutional protections grows larger and larger -- first on behalf of American blacks, then for all "people of color," then women and gays, and now, illegal immigrants. Reverse racial discrimination has empowered an unelected political class growing fat and thuggish on a new spoils system. With ObamaCare, racial spoils may capsize our elected ship of state, leaving only an EU-type corruptocracy.

The Left has pushed against the Constitution beginning with the Wilson administration and World War I. 

What's different about Obama is his Leninist grandiosity, combined with amazing oppositional-defiant disorder. In street language that means his f-u attitude. Obama takes pleasure in waving his finger in the air while violating our most precious values. Obama's narcissism and oppositional-defiance therefore control his official actions.

The week after Obama's first inauguration, commuters in New York City were shocked when Air Force 
One buzzed the Statue of Liberty. When the White House was queried nobody took responsibility. But only the President of the United States can override standing orders and FAA safety rules in that symbolic act of giving the middle finger to the whole country, within sight of the ruined Twin Towers. Buzzing Lady Liberty was only one of dozens of acts of symbolic defiance that Obama has indulged in over the years. Psychiatrically these gestures have two features: first, they are unnecessary to achieve any rational goal; and second, they always reveal rage and hatred against "middleclassness," as Jeremiah Wright calls it, the values that normal Americans hold dear.

Emotionally Obama's arrogance is based in deep feelings of inferiority, a mental plague that infects much of the left. Oppositionalism is at the very roots of the Left's glorification of revolution. Marx and the other hard Leftists make it very clear that "revolution" means civil war, as bloody as is necessary to alter human nature forever. When in the end human nature prevails, the Left always forgets its failures and discovers new messianic figures, like Obama himself, to forge another great new future.

Today the Europeans are genuinely afraid of Obama. If you doubt that, look at these two news photos. The first shows Frau Merkel looking with fear and doubt in her eyes at Obama in Germany this week. Merkel started life as a communist in East Germany, but seems acutely aware of personality cults like Stalin's and Obama's. She fears what she knows. 

 The second photo shows Britain's David Cameron doing that little head bow that politicians do around Obama. Both photos show fear of Obama's arbitrary temper and rage, which is by now understood by governments around the world. It was France's Nikolas Sarkozy who first called Obama "aliene," meaning "estranged from reality."

 Merkel's look is particularly revealing, because it was her job this week to protest against Obama's unbounded NSA spying against Germans and other Europeans, who have known Obamas before --- Mussolini, Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, and a raft of other control freaks who became enraged when their orders were not followed. Led by our loathsome media, many Americans took the public revelations about Obama's abuses of power with a shrug. The Germans did not, because they still suffer from earlier generations of Obamas.

Oddly enough, after the massive trauma of World War II, inflicted by Germany on Europe and America, there seems to be more sensitivity about massive abuse of power over there than in the USA. Their wounds are fresher than ours. We still imagine it can't happen here. The German press knows better, and therefore went ballistic about the NSA revelations.

The Muslim world has come to the same conclusion. The farcical Arab Spring started after Obama told Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak to leave office, arbitrarily, in the single most blatant act of public imperialism in American history. Obama thereby dislodged the most crucial pillar of Middle East stability in the last forty years: the Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty established between Anwar Sadat and Menachem Begin. Israel gave up the Sinai Peninsula and in exchange Sadat recognized Israel's right to exist. It was the only genuine peace treaty of the last sixty years, and Obama destroyed it.

The result hasn't harmed Israel so far, even though Obama considers Israel the obstacle to perfect, lasting peace. No. The result has been chaos and starvation in Egypt under the Muslim Brotherhood. Tens of millions of women who lived in relative freedom are now confined by Shari'ah law. In Syria an estimated 100,000 Arabs have killed each other so far, and last week Syria slipped toward the much-feared regional war between Shiites and Sunnis: Iran, Assad, and Hezbollah against Egypt, Libya, and Al Qaida, all financed by the Gulf Arabs. Russia is backing Iran and Assad, and the U.S. is foolishly backing Al Qaida, who hate us.

This is not a foreign policy. It is a jerry-rigged contraption to try to save the day after the Arab Spring destroyed all the unstable Muslim regimes.

In 2009, Obama proclaimed his Muslim sympathies from Al Azhar University in Cairo. Today no Muslim believes him anymore. Based on his own messianic authority, Obama has brought nothing but war and suffering to the Middle East. The Iranians hate him as a point of principle. The Saudis fear him as a wild man who has brought Mecca and Medina within easy range of Iranian nuclear weapons. Israel has not been damaged so far, but they don't want a wild man running U.S. policy either.

Obama has almost four years to go, unless he becomes UN SecGen, in which case he may be around for another decade to impose his Leninist vision on the world. So far, Obama has made things worse, much worse, both in foreign and domestic policy. Free-market capitalism is a robust system, one that has recovered from massive misgovernment before. Politics is worse today than it has been for decades, because of the rise of the Boomer Left, culminating in Obama the Messiah.

Yet precisely because control freaks cannot run our hypercomplex economy, they do not know what is going to happen, and neither do we. Nobody could predict the web, just as nobody could predict the internal combustion engine. Nobody predicted massive shale discoveries that are turning us into a net hydrocarbon exporter in the middle of the greenest administration in history. Nobody can predict the new age of biogenetic engineering. Nobody knows what will happen with ObamaCare, except it will be one unholy quagmire.

Wise policymakers understand the limits of their power and end up practicing the rule of "First, Do No Harm." We now have a U.S. president who has turned that upside-down: First, do some harm.

It hasn't worked, and it won't. Obama is a loose cannonball. He has only one guiding principle, the aggrandizement of his own ego. But just one Nobel Peace Prize, just one presidency, can never be enough for his insatiable needs. Obama will always need more.

Obama wants to control everything except himself. That has always been a formula for tyranny, and Obama is no exception.

Character is destiny.

Governor Palin Tweets: Louisiana State Senator Escapes Democrat Plantation

June 18 2013

Governor Palin tweeted the following today, drawing our attention to a video by Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory, who has liberated himself from the plantation known as the Democrat party. In this video, Senator Guillory coherently and concisely expresses why the party of Abraham Lincoln–the anti-slavery, pro-equality party–is the natural home for black Americans.

Sarah Palin's Faith and Freedom Coalition Speech 6-15-2013


If Sarah Palin Had Become President

Saturday, June 15, 2013
 Remember the 2008 election? Democrats in and out of the media told us that McCain was old and it was possible that he could die in office, leaving Sarah Palin as president. The horror!
Well imagine that McCain had not self-destructed, become president and died, leaving Palin as president.

Beginning on day one: 
  • Palin would not have dismissed the Black Panther intimidation lawsuit that the government had already won.
  • Palin would not have seized two auto companies and give them to her cronies in and out of the UAW.
  • Palin and her supporters would not be claiming that her opponents were racists for disagreeing with her policies.
  • Palin would not have tried to block Boeing from building a factory in South Carolina as a gift to her union buddies in Washington state.
  • Palin would not have toured the world apologizing for America.
  • Palin's Homeland Security Department would not have classified patriots as security threats.
  • Palin would have expanded oil and gas exploration on federal lands instead of reducing it, make the US even less dependent on foreign oil.
  • Palin would not have allowed the Pigford suit to be settled that gives billions of dollars to “farmers” that never farmed.
  • Palin would not have shipped thousands of guns to Mexican drug cartels so that they could be found next to the bodies of murdered Mexicans and American agents.
  • Palin would not have encouraged the IRS to harass Tea Party groups.
  • Palin would not have encouraged the IRS to illegally reveal the names of contributors to conservative groups to Liberal organizations so that contributors could be harassed.
  • Palin’s IRS would not ask groups seeking 501(c)4 status about their prayer life.
  • Palin would not have passed a national health care bill that is a 2000 page “train wreck” and that threatens to destroy America’s health care system.
  • Palin would have focused on reducing unemployment as it skyrocketed instead of wasting a trillion dollars on green boondoggles..
  • Palin would have known that in today’s regulatory state there is not such thing as a “shovel ready jobs” program.
  • Palin would not have spent a trillion dollars to prop up state and local government employees when private sector employees were losing millions of jobs.
  • Palin would not have handed out “Palin phones” to welfare recipients.
  • Palin would not have attacked Libya, without congressional approval, turning it into a rogue state.
  • Palin would not have allowed her ambassador to Libya to be slaughtered, along with three US service members, and told would-be rescuers to stand down.
  • Palin would not have blamed a demonstration that did not occur caused by a video that no one saw for the attack by terrorist in Benghazi.
  • Palin’s UN ambassador would not have gone on national TV to lie about the terrorist attacks in Benghazi because she would not have broken Libya in the first place.
  • Palin would not have been stupid enough - or naive enough - to support the Islamist take-over of the Egyptian government.
  • Palin would have given encouragement to demonstrators in Iran when they went to the streets to protest a fraudulent election.
  • Palin would not be giving the Islamist regime in Egypt billions of dollars to keep it in power.
  • Palin would not have told Putin to wait till after she was re-elected because then she would have more flexibility.
  • Palin’s appointed officials would not be lying to congress and the American people when they are not invoking the Fifth Amendment against incrimination.
  • Palin would not be sending Secret Service agent to her critics' homes demanding to do a search, go through his medical records, his computer, his cell phone and pretty much anything else, and then threaten to come back and confiscate his guns if he "stepped over the line."
  • Finally, Palin would have taken responsibility for the things that happened while she was President instead of telling us that she only read about it in this morning’s newspaper.

Hillary Clinton's Legacy of Scandal

June 15, 2013
By Jeffrey T. Brown

   In the midst of the eruption of near-daily scandals involving the Obama administration, let us not forget that until just a few months ago, Hillary Clinton was the most significant persona within that administration besides the president himself.  Let us not also forget that notwithstanding the scandal-grenades going off all around us, Mrs. Clinton diligently plans her run for the presidency, even while several of those scandals are obviously and entirely her responsibility, exposing the State Department during her tenure as an utter sewer of corruption, cronyism, and fatal incompetence. 

For as long as Hillary Clinton has been on the national scene, she has left a path of destruction and wreckage in her wake that is both impressive and terrible to behold.  She is a testament to the extent of damage that can be done by one person determined to conquer everything before her in the quest for unlimited power and self-gratification.  The only prize left to her in American politics is the presidency, which she has always felt is hers by right.  Indeed, she would have attained it were it not for the upstart community organizer, a fellow admirer of Saul Alinsky, who spoke in volumes but said nothing. 

While such determination comes at a staggering cost, we should remind ourselves that the bill is never paid by Mrs. Clinton or her equally arrogant husband.  It is paid by the country.  Before we ask yet again for the check, perhaps we should remind ourselves of exactly who this woman is who will soon attempt to seduce the country, and her history as the object of an absurd and undeserved degree of national affection.

Before accompanying her husband to the White House as our first co-president, Mrs. Clinton was working hard on becoming the person we now know her to be.  As with her husband, the goal has always been the attainment of power masquerading as public service.  Setting an example for the Obamas to emulate, the Clintons put self-absorption and personal victory before all else.  The Clintons have always served themselves, and nothing else.

Do you recall the slime that was Whitewater, in which the Clintons dissembled and lied while their former business partners went to jail?  Do you remember Mrs. Clinton earning $100,000 in profit in 1979 on a $1,000 investment over the course of only 9 months in volatile cattle futures, about which she knew nothing, thanks to help from a highly placed Tyson Foods connection?  Tyson profited handsomely in Arkansas, with state loans and appointments.  We are to believe that Clinton studied the Wall Street Journal to achieve a feat against which the odds were one in 250 million.  Do you recall the Rose Law Firm billing records that magically appeared in Mrs. Clinton's White House office, years after they had been subpoenaed?  Or the death of Vince Foster under rather extraordinary and inexplicable circumstances, and the lies and cover-up that followed?  Do you recall that while testifying before congressional investigators as first lady, she answered "I don't know" or "I don't remember" 250 times?

Do you recall Travelgate, in which the Clintons destroyed reputations and careers to reward campaign donors?  What about the endless parade of women, long known to Mrs. Clinton and laughably passed off by her as "ministering" to a troubled young woman in the matter of Miss Lewinsky?  Nevertheless, when the truth came out, she was entirely happy to exploit the illusion of victimhood for her own martyrdom in the cause of political advancement.

Wherever Mrs. Clinton goes, destruction follows.  Of course, like the current president, nothing is ever her fault.  She knows nothing.  She is the innocent victim of all around her, endlessly bemoaning her fate as the victim of a vast right-wing conspiracy that somehow has directed the events of her life even before there was a vast right-wing conspiracy.

Make no mistake: the Clintons, and Hillary Clinton in particular, hold the American public in utter contempt, but especially so their own supporters.  How else to explain the countless frauds, crimes, and lies they perpetrate upon their devotees, whose own intellectual honesty is devalued to nothing by their loyalty?  And how else besides intellectual dishonesty to rationalize somehow being a Hillary Clinton supporter?

As if Benghazi was not enough, and it should have been even with the little that has come to light thus far, news broke this week about the culture of pure corruption, decay, immorality, criminality, and scandal that has been our Department of State under Mrs. Clinton.  We were regaled with liberal celebrations of the mythical "Greatest Secretary of State" ever, while those paying attention could not identify a single advancement in the image or policies of the United States during her tenure.  Certainly the blame for that does not fall entirely upon her, given whose policies she was advocating, but she still opted to be the person who advanced those destructive policies, putting our country at risk and lowering its standing throughout the world.  This reality was recently driven home by the revelation that the Clintons and President Obama struck a deal under which she accepted the post of secretary of state in exchange for Obama's support in 2016. 

Regardless of the means, we are now being provided a window into what actually occurred under Mrs. Clinton's stewardship.  No doubt we will once again be treated to a river of alibis.  Like the president, we will be asked by Mrs. Clinton's public relations mercenaries to believe that the structure over which she presided was entirely foreign to her, and that despite her zeal to take credit for any exercise of power as head of that structure, any wrongdoing by those carrying out her organizational mission statement is somehow not attachable to her.  Like the president, her good name has been hijacked by those actively doing wrong under her very nose.  Also like the president, rampant wrongdoing and criminality occurring in her very presence met with no censure whatsoever, which is becoming increasingly difficult to reconcile with the real world in which the rest of us live.  Either she entirely failed morally as a leader because she knew what was happening and ignored it (or worse, actively participated in it), or she entirely failed in terms of competence for not even being that pathetic.

For those paying attention, we are being treated to a preview of coming attractions.  Indeed, every day under President Obama is a preview of the presidency of Hillary Clinton, if we are so reckless as to accept her self-serving proposal of figurative marriage.  Unlike Mr. Obama, however, about whom we knew nothing before his rise, the Hillary Clinton preview of coming attractions has been running on a near-continuous loop for the better part of 30 years.

As the State Department scandal deepens, and as more people potentially refuse to take the fall for the advancement of an utterly corrupt politician, perhaps our knowledge of Mrs. Clinton will deepen -- as if we really needed to know more to understand who and what she is.  We should be grateful as a nation for the gift of foresight.  May it finally enlighten those who so far have proved poor excuses for sensible American citizens.

A Warning to Public Servants in the Obama Administration: It’s RICO time!

By Marinka Peschmann 

What, do you think you are special? Sorry to rain on your hope-and-change parade but it is time for a reality check. For those public servants in the Obama administration, you can’t serve under corrupt leadership and not become corrupt yourself. Not to speak is to speak.

Same goes for the in-the-tank media. What, did you think only FOX News, Associated Press and Canada Free Press reporters would be targeted by the Obama White House’s Justice Department, Federal Bureau of Investigations or National Security Agency and not you? Forgive my tone, but you are not allowed to be naïve and stupid anymore. This abusive, illegal targeting garbage, as you know, (and if you don’t, forgive my bluntness, but you are a crappy journalist), has been going on for decades.

As I reported yesterday, in It’s RICO time: How to Stop the Obama Administration Crime Wave, Americans now know how to stop the mafia rule that has hijacked their government, and end the special justice system that has corrupted and perverted America’s rule of law.

What stopped the mob? The Racketeer Influence and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). What will hold the Obama administration accountable? RICO. Let’s call the corruption what it is and face it head on.

To be clear, this Chicago-shakedown, mafia-rule Obama administration, as I noted yesterday that comes straight from Saul Alinsky and notorious mob crime boss Al Capone’s playbook, did not suddenly take hold after President Barack Obama took office but it has been going on for years. It’s all documented in The Whistleblower: How the Clinton White House Stayed in Power to Reemerge in the Obama White & World Stage, in case you are clueless or living in denial.

Warning. All public servants are disposable. The ends justify the means.

A little history here is necessary.

Despite the political disinformation (as opposed to facts and reality) that the mainstream press erroneously spread claiming that Linda Tripp was a whistleblower during the events that led up to President Bill Clinton’s impeachment, she wasn’t a whistleblower. She was a team player. Let’s look at what happened to civil servant, team-player Linda Tripp. As you will see, even if you are a team player, you are disposable.

Exclusive audio at the end.

From The Whistleblower (page 66-67). Brackets added for context.

“Five years after the travel office firings, during the Clinton-Lewinsky investigation, Linda tried to explain to [Special Counsel Ken Starr’s grand] jury [why she wasn’t a whistleblower]: “And I will never forgive myself for not warning [Billy Dale and the travel office staff] when I saw what was being done to them [trumping up phony criminal charges]. But I didn’t. I chose to be loyal to the Office of the Counsel to the President (italics mine) for whom I worked and made a decision not to give them fair warning about what was going to happen to them.”

Contrary to conventional wisdom that Linda Tripp was a whistleblower who conspired to destroy the Clintons; the strange truth was the exact opposite. Linda protected the Clintons. She chose to be loyal to Hillary Clinton to keep her job.”

That’s right. Civil servant Tripp chose not to warn civil servant Billy Dale when the Clinton White House was trumping up criminal charges against him to give the lucrative travel office business to their friends—known as Travelgate. In the mob world, it is called payback and Tripp was a foot soldier. Then Tripp incredibly cried victim after she silently watched the Clintons victimize others (Dale was not an isolated case, read The Whistleblower) when they did the same thing to her. I repeat. You are disposable.

Case in point. Remember during the Clinton era when 49 Democrats signed a letter putting pressure on Howard County States’ attorney Marna McLendon to charge Tripp with illegal wiretapping for secretly recording Bill Clinton’s paramour, Monica Lewinsky, for insurance purposes? Indeed, covering up for corruption does take its toll on you if you have/had a conscience. Not to speak is to speak! If you don’t remember this criminal episode following is the short version.

Maryland prosecutors succumbed to the political pressure the Democrats dumped on them (like some of the IRS officials today) to prosecute Linda Tripp. They built a flimsy criminal case and indicted her. Tripp faced two criminal charges that could have thrown her in jail for ten years or stuck her with a $20,000 fine.

Ultimately the Maryland prosecutors lost their bogus case when the charges were dropped over a year later because their chief witness, Monica Lewinsky, was a worldwide known perjurer, who with Bill Clinton tried to suborn perjury.

In the mob world, it’s called witness tampering and shakedowns.

Meanwhile Tripp was silenced, with the fear of incarceration hanging over head, taxpayer dollars were wasted and not one politician was held accountable for misusing their office for political gain which is why they continue to misuse their power today.

As Del. Robert L. Flanagan, the House GOP whip of the Maryland House of Delegates, said at the time, it was inappropriate and potentially “dangerous” for legislators to tell prosecutors whom to investigate. He accused the Democrats of moving towards a “police state.”

He was right and because the political judicial system failed to preserve the rule of law then, the corruption continues, unabated and more innocent Americans are caught in the crossfire. That’s right, civil servants and media sycophants. You could be next.

So I ask you why then is anyone surprised (particularly the media sycophants) to see the political abuse of power continuing today in the IRS and elsewhere? As I reported in The Whistleblower, the Clintons did the same thing. Where have you been all this time?

That’s why it should also not have come as a surprise to learn that in 2010, ten leading Democrats—Including, Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich), Max Baucus (D-MT), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Al Franken (D-Minn) started writing the IRS Commissioner letters demanding that the agency crack down on conservative groups. The letters complained that the IRS was acting passively.

This is how they abuse their power to stay in power.

As Rick Santelli of CNBC said, “When you get right down to it, the political targeting and stalling of tax-exempt applications by the IRS was an effort to defund the Tea Party,” wrote Lawrence Kudrow recently, “Rick Santelli, one of the Tea Party founders and my CNBC colleague, was the first to make this point. I’ve taken it a step further: The IRS was taking the Tea Party out of play for the 2012 election, as it looked to avoid a repeat of 2010 and another Tea Party landslide.”

Same thing happened at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. It’s all documented in Crime & Incompetence: Guide to America’s Immigration Crisis. Hello, the 2012 elections were heavily stacked in President Obama’s favor. In mob lingo, the election was rigged.

What happened to the Clintons after they circumvented the rule of law in Travelgate? Nothing. Did they go to jail for trumping up charges against civil servant Billy Dale, committing perjury, withholding evidence and so forth? No. Did Billy Dale have to fight for his life to stay out of jail and for his freedom? Yes.

“In its aftermath, five of the staffers were reinstated, and in a self-critical report the White House admitted it “erred and would never again short-circuit proper legal channels by bypassing the Justice Department in seeking an FBI investigation (The Whistleblower page 58).”

That’s it. The Clinton White House had a self-investigation. Self-investigations are always a smoke and mirrors publicity stunt disguised as news to deceive the public, a total joke and a charade which is why the Obama White House is doing the same thing. Then the Clinton White House said they were sorry and promised they would never short-circuit proper legal channels again. In case you haven’t been keeping score. Hillary went on to misuse the State Department in the Benghazi cover-up as reported here for starters.

Do not be deceived. Civil servant, team-player Tripp had loyally served the Clintons outside the Oval office and Hillary’s counsel office to keep her job. Is that what you are doing in the Obama administration because if so, look out. When Tripp found herself in their way, she needed to go just like Billy Dale had to go. Same thing applies to the civil servants in the IRS and beyond. In the mob world, sometimes people are literally or figuratively whacked.

White House illegally leaks confidential information

Don’t forget how the Clinton administration illegally leaked confidential information from Tripp’s FBI background check to the press to destroy her credibility so they could remain in power when her tapes with Monica Lewinsky became public—not by her own actions. She became collateral damage and the taxpayers footed the bill, + $595,000 in compensation (which mostly went to Tripp’s lawyers), for their crime.

Hey, hey civil servants serving in the Obama administration—are you feeling good, warm and fuzzy about the privacy of your FBI background check, especially the RAW data portion? You know what I’m talking about—the fast track to the tabloids. Well, you shouldn’t be. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Your FBI background check could be leaked out next. Oh, look, the Obama administration illegally leaks too.

Let’s be blunt here. The Obama White House is the Clinton White House on steroids.

Hey, hey civil servants and media sycophants, do you wonder if someone is trumping up charges against you? You should be wondering because the Obama administration already tried to pull it off by trumping up unindicted co-conspirator charges against FOX NEWS reporter James Rosen, who was doing his job. I remind you, Billy Dale and Linda Tripp simply went to work too. If they can do it to them, they can do it to you.

And just in case that deadly denial starts creeping in that also infected Tripp, allow me to I assure you that the stint Tripp enjoyed in a safe house because of all the death threats she received, despite being a team-player, during the events that led to President Bill Clinton’s impeachment—was not a good time.
Wake up. The political judicial system has failed America for decades. Politicians will do anything to stay in power. You are disposable. That’s why it is RICO time. That’s why it is up to the people now to hold Washington accountable under the Racketeer Influence and Corrupt Organizations Act.

To recap, RICO suits need to start nation-wide immediately. They can always merge with others and be joined at the criminal level. Civil RICO does not rely on the politics of the criminal prosecution system to work. This is especially critical because politics have corrupted the Federal criminal justice system’s ability to obtain justice. With civil RICO it’s the underlings’ assets that become damages/compensation if they are found guilty then work your way UP!

In a just, lawful America, gunrunning Attorney General Eric Holder would have been held accountable for his role in Paradongate during the Clinton era and that would have ended his “public service” then. Instead the Bush administration, part of the special justice system in Washington that doesn’t apply to you or me rolled over and declined to investigate quid-pro-quo Pardongate.

Holder went on to “serve” as Obama’s chief law enforcement officer, the attorney general of the United States. Bill Clinton, who also wasn’t held accountable for Pardongate, according to MSNBC, has become the “President of the World” and played a major role in helping Obama’s 2012 re-election. Holder’s reign of making a mockery out of the rule of law continues in Fast and Furious, targeting of journalists and beyond. Holder shouldn’t be asked to resign. He should be indicted—now. But he won’t be indicted by the political judicial system because Obama’s brain, White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett, made it perfectly clear that he “will be in his position for quite a while.”

Get it? Remember how all the “experts” and Republican bigwigs insisted Holder should resign for Fast and Furious? Did you notice that he didn’t go anywhere?

I repeat. You are not allowed to be naïve and stupid anymore—this is the special justice system in play—real time that can be stopped using the RICO laws. Now is the time to draw your line in the sand. Just remember, to politicians who will do anything to stay in power that you are disposable.

Marco Rubio is Dead to Me

June 11, 2013
Selwyn Duke

Young, handsome and Hispanic, Marco Rubio was once hailed as one of the new faces of the Republican Party. But now we learn that he actually brings two new faces to the GOP.
One that says one thing one moment and another that says a different thing at a different moment.

 After all, while Rubio appeared in this deceptive ad touting the supposed conservative nature of his amnesty bill, The Examiner tells us the following:

In a Spanish-language interview Sunday with the network Univision, Sen. Marco Rubio, the leading Republican on the Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform group, made his strongest statement yet that legalization of the nation's estimated 11 million illegal immigrants must happen before any new border security or internal enforcement measures are in place, and will in no way be conditional on any security requirements.
"Let's be clear," Rubio said. "Nobody is talking about preventing the legalization. The legalization is going to happen. That means the following will happen: First comes the legalization. Then come the measures to secure the border. And then comes the process of permanent residence."

And then comes the death of the nation.

The Gang of Eight (GOE) scamnesty bill would grant legalization to more than 30 million migrants - and the number could be far higher - over the next 10 years, who will then have further access to taxpayer-funded services, programs and handouts. Moreover, demographic electoral analysis clearly shows that virtually all these new "Americans" would vote for socialist politicians (read: liberal Democrats), just as they did in their native lands. So I understand why GOE-Scam authors Dick Durbin (D-IL), Charles Schumer (D-NY) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ) consider the bill a good idea. I understand why Mexico considers it a good idea. I understand why China, Russia and any other nation that wanted American power and culture neutralized would consider it a good idea. But why, Senator Rubio, do you consider the bill a good idea? You and your politics keep some very strange and alarming bedfellows.

So I have something to say, and this isn't just for Rubio. Any politician - Democrat, Republican or independent - who supports amnesty in any form or by any name is dead to me.


Immigration is a deal-breaker issue because it involves forces with the power to reshape your land into a different nation altogether. Thus, I would say that there can be no compromise on it, except that compromise isn't even on the horizon. That is to say, imagine the powers-that-be didn't have the will to punish the current crop of apprehended bank robbers; instead, they wanted to grant them amnesty and let them keep their ill-gotten gains. But they promised that if we agreed to this plan, they would increase police presence and reinforce bank-vault doors in the future. Would you consider this compromise? Would it even be that if we granted amnesty to only 20 percent of bank robbers?

Agreeing to facilitate law-breaking isn't compromise - it's capitulation. In a sane world, you don't allow criminals to reap the benefits of their law-breaking; you punish them. Compromise would be if we were discussing ending all immigration - as we should do - but then agreed to settle for a mere reduction in the numbers.

But it appears that some so-called "conservatives" have taken a high-dose stupid pill. The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. Ronald Reagan got bitten by his 1986 amnesty (which he called a "mistake") when he agree to legalize the law-breakers in return for a Democrat promise of border enforcement, a promise that wasn't worth the paper it was printed on. And since then we've had six more amnesties.

Fact: the Democrats have never secured the border.

And they never will.

Oh, if the new arrivals had a history of voting GOP, the border would be locked down so tight a bacterium couldn't breach it. There'd be a wall with a fence on top of it, military patrols and Star Wars-type drones with heat-seeking technology buzzing about. But the Democrats have no intention of rejecting their main constituency: anyone who isn't Americanized.       

And that's the point. Allowing immigration doesn't just invite new people into your nation - it invites new voters into your nation. And any Republican who believes that the Hispanic voting bloc can be wooed with Rubioesque pandering is far too ignorant and dangerous to hold office.

If Marco Rubio and his fellow travelers want to hasten the death of traditional America, they are dead to me. Let's ensure that their political careers rest in peace long before the republic does.

The Obama Scandals and the Limbaugh Theorem

June 11, 2013 By Steve McCann

 Virtually all the scandals erupting around the Obama regime involve the loss of individual freedom and the rapid evolution of an oppressive central government.   These ongoing revelations eerily mirror the history of repressive nations such as Germany, Italy and Russia during the past century.   Nonetheless, per the public opinion polls and the lack of enthusiasm by the mainstream media to cover these scandals, Barack Obama remains above the fray and is not directly linked or blamed for any of these debacles -- even something as egregious as the NSA and domestic surveillance of all Americans.

Over the past few months, Rush Limbaugh has posited what he calls the "Limbaugh Theorem."  Essentially he contends that Barack Obama, as part of a calculated and permanent campaign strategy, maintains, with the help of a sycophantic media, high approval ratings despite the unpopularity of his policies.  The core of this strategy is for Obama to remain above politics and not be identified with any of the policy failures or scandals surrounding his administration by blaming others for all that has gone wrong, as he is a dedicated "outsider "doing all he can to solve problems; but first he must slay those purveyors of evil rampant throughout the land: Republicans and conservatives.

The Limbaugh Theorem is spot on.  However, the Obama tactics have been successful only because of the confluence of three factors that came together at a right moment in American history. 

 The first is the long-term and intentional dumbing down of the American people.  The second, the incarnation of a celebrity culture as a byproduct of the ill-education of the citizenry as well as the concurrent decline of morality and denigration of religion.  The third is this nation's unhealthy obsession with race.

The Viet Nam war protests of the 1960's unleashed far more than just a demand for an end to the war.  

Those that blamed America for all manner of alleged sins in the past and determined to transform the United States into a socialist/Marxist nirvana were able to step out from behind the shadows and enter the mainstream of national legitimacy.  This swarm of locusts soon enveloped the higher levels of Academia spawning countless clones to further infiltrate all strata of the education establishment including primary and secondary institutions. 

The curriculum throughout all levels of schooling was gradually but inexorably altered to reflect the American left's mindset, not only about the nation, but also their determination to undermine basic societal moral and religious underpinning as a necessary step in assuring the populace would look to government as their savior.   While the bulk of the populace slept content and mesmerized by the country's overwhelming prosperity, this process, underway for nearly two generations, has eventuated in creating a massive class of low-information voters unconcerned about the nation's future and susceptible to all manner of lies and propaganda from unscrupulous politicians such as Barack Obama, who will do or say anything to win an election.

Among the consequences of the successful undermining of societal mores and an ill-educated citizenry is the creation of a pervasive celebrity culture.   As the concepts of God and individual self-determination were increasingly denigrated and cast aside, the populace began to look elsewhere for so-called role models and guidance.  The obvious choice: those that entertain a vast number of people and are adept, through the vehicle of the media, at being constantly in the nation's living rooms, sports venues, movie theatres, magazines and the internet. 

While it is difficult for any national politician to achieve overwhelming celebrity status, Barack Obama made that goal his primary campaign objective.  Once he achieved that end, his checkered past and his record or philosophical bent became immaterial.  Combining that achievement with his African descent, he has been anointed as the national celebrity-in-chief.   Barack Obama is therefore above mere mortals to a majority of the gullible.

One of the aspects of American life that those of us who immigrated to the United States from other nations find confounding is the ongoing national obsession with race.   Particularly as America has made enormous strides in equality since I first set foot in this country in the early 1950's.  In August of 1963, as college student in Washington D.C., I was one of nearly 200,000 people at the Lincoln Memorial to hear Martin Luther King deliver his "I Have a Dream Speech."  (Thereafter I became active in the civil rights movement.) 

What those in the movement strived to achieve was the end of institutional racism, knowing that in time, the attitudes of the people would change.  For the most part, this has been achieved within less than forty years -- a truly remarkable accomplishment in such a short period of time as compared to the history of other nations.   Those of us of all races, some of whom gave their lives, were determined to rid this great country of its original sin.  It was not to give others the opportunity to exploit race as a means to their devious ends, either monetary or political. 

Barack Obama has both cunningly and egregiously played the so-called "race card" whenever it suits his agenda.  He is reliant on so-called "white guilt" to stifle criticism or dissent, knowing that the overwhelming majority of Americans are too cowed to call him out on his actions or to be honest with pollsters or each other.  Barack Obama wields no greater weapon over the people and the media than his skin color. and as such far too many are intimidated, which allows him to successfully avoid responsibility and accountability.   

Thus Barack Obama reveals his abject lack of character by his dependence on manipulating an ill-educated population obsessed with celebrity, and on a society foolishly intimidated by race -- in order to foist his radical and unwanted agenda on the country by any means possible and aggregate more power to the government.  He has shown himself to be the most dangerous, dishonest and narcissistic president in the history of the United States.

The scandals currently buffeting the Obama administration should not be a surprise, as Barack Obama and his minions have been emboldened to either break the law or do as they wish regardless of the Constitution or Congress.  He and his cronies know full well that they will not be held to account as they go about their stealth conquest of America.  There will be more revelations of wrongdoing and more scandals over the next three years, but will the bulk of the American people understand their role in empowering this President and finally hold him to account before it is too late?

Is Sarah Palin too big for Washington?

Special interests, lobbyists, think tanks, foreign influence, all write the legislation and set the agenda for Congress to follow.

by Mark Vogl
Tuesday, June 4, 2013

 An inexperienced, relatively unproven man sits in the White House, and you can almost see the strings moving him about the theatre called Washington. He offers nothing new; his change is an amalgamation of socialist - communist doctrines from Marx to Malcom X written by countless Democratic operatives. America, the American Way is bad, the cause of all the evil in the world. The Constitution is an obstacle, not a governing contract to be revered and defended. Obama Care was not something President Obama conceived, but rather an idea from the minds of college pedigreed socialists who not only do not understand capitalism but despise it.

The sad truth is that Americans sent to Washington as our representatives are walking into a pit filled with a wide variety of interests who have spent decades creating their own view of America based on their own financial interests. Everything is about latching onto a government "tit" and sucking it for all it's worth. And they are very polished in their presentations. Whether it's for the "children," or the "least fortunate," or "to save the planet" these special interests have constructed lines of thought and logic that appear to be sound and honest. And when it comes to the liberal side of the aisle, they all know that the government and tax payer money/debt is the pie that they are trying to get a piece of. Therefore make a larger pie and you get a larger piece.

But whether the special interests are on the left, or think tanks on the right like the Heritage Foundation, the key central connecting thread is that these people in Washington, D.C. think they know best, and that their agenda is the vision America must adopt. If Washington were a closet, it would be so full of items that the items would literally be showing themselves through every crack or pushing themselves out at the bottom of the door. If you have to open that door, as our freshman representatives do when they get to Washington, you would be instantly buried by all the clothes bursting out on top of you!

So Sarah Palin is not someone Washington wants coming to "their sandbox as the President." Sarah is not in the box, not from the box, and does not like the box. Sarah Palin is from about as far from Washington as you can get. Her night time views are not filled with city lights, but the grand vistas of God. And Sarah's vision of America is not contained in White Papers written at the Heritage Foundation, but ones held in the hearts of Americans from South Carolina to California.

Sarah Palin, Allen West, and it looks like Ted Cruz, are all people who have not been clothed in the items in the closet I mentioned earlier. They are still Americans who see what 300 million Americans could be. They don't see Washington as "money tree" but as a guardian of the greatest idea every conceived, the American republic.

Sarah Palin is despised, hated, vilified because she is the antithesis to everything in Washington. She is the little grandmother in Texas who wonders if there will even be a family for her granddaughter to be a grandmother of! She is the small business woman in Missouri that was doing pretty good and employing people, but can't do it anymore because of the fear of the IRS, Obama Care, and losing everything. Sarah Palin is the people at church on Sunday, asking God, " ... why are they pushing You away?"

Sarah Palin is an American people frustrated by the continually crisis in Washington, and tired of endless, meaningless wars. Sarah Palin is the ranchers and land owners along the Rio Grande who see an endless continuing flow of illegals and drugs crossing the border.

Sarah Palin is a voice, a voice for a people who are tired of excuses, debt, war, immorality, and just plain stupidity.

He's been President for four years, and President Obama takes no responsibility for daily failure in this nation. A relatively small, simple thing like acting to save an ambassador in a foreign land was beyond his ability! Even with the strongest military in the world, even with special operations people loading up to go, even with eyes on the ground intelligence, President Obama could NOT be bothered to save a life, or protect American sovereignty. Did anyone in Washington, in the media call him to task for his dereliction of duty at the time it happened, when it could have mattered in an election?


Why?; Because Obama fits the mold of a "comfortable" President for Washington. He can't speak without a script, he has no plan to fix the system, he is no threat to the special interests that infest Washington.

The howls you hear against Sarah Palin are precisely because she is carrying a can of Raid, and if she gets into Washington all H... is going to break lose as the lights are turned on for the American people to see. You see, Sarah has a record of precisely this when she was governor of Alaska. Sarah faced down the large oil companies and won for her state. Sarah put the head of the Alaska Republican Party in jail! Sarah had an 83% approval rating by the people of Alaska in her third year.

Is Washington big enough for Sarah? In history, Washington has been as large or small as the President residing there.

The Totalitarian Left is Back

June 8, 2013
By James Lewis 

 The New York Times is the fountainhead of the Leftist propaganda machine in the United States. It is therefore significant that its Editorial Board, stocked with Boomer radicals, has just made a fundamental admission against interest. In reaction to Obama's massive and systematic abuse of executive power, the NYT editorialized that
Mr. Obama is proving the truism that the executive branch will use any power it is given and very likely abuse it. That is one reason we have long argued that the Patriot Act, enacted in the heat of fear after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks by members of Congress who mostly had not even read it, was reckless in its assignment of unnecessary and overbroad surveillance powers.
But this is of course a lie. Nothing in the Patriot Act authorizes the government-wide abuse of power by the IRS, EPA, FBI, DOJ, and other agencies with the coercive powers against Americans and foreigners. The fault is not in the Patriot Act, but in Obama's Chicago-style one-party machine style of governance. And rather than defending our freedoms, the leftist media colluded with abuse of power until after the election of 2012. The New York Times is the biggest gear in the Obama Machine and they know it.

Contrary to the last desperate defense spun by the Times, the Bush Administration never abused the press immunities of reporters; it never used the IRS to initiate hostile investigations of its domestic political enemies, no matter how poisonous and hateful those enemies became; it did not peddle the massive transnationalist fraud of global warming through the EPA; it did not aggress against private corporations as a routine practice; it did not blackmail medical corporations to fund its piratical takeover of 1/7 of the American economy just to benefit its own political clout; it did not practice billion-dollar corruption for its favorite corporate cronies; it did not abuse the coercive powers of the Department of Justice in pursuit of a racialist revenge agenda; it did not indulge in daily White House lies the way Mr. Obama does; and it did not try to establish a Chicago political machine at the Federal level.

Moreover, Republicans never publicly wish for one-party rule in the United States, the way prominent Democrats do so often. They do not engage in monopolistic media collusion, as exposed by the under-covered Journolist scandal. Republicans never engage in the vicious high-tech mob lynching of good and decent human beings, the way the radical Left has done so many times, from Justice Clarence Thomas to the racialist outcry against Hillary and Bill Clinton at the Democratic Convention of 2008.

Since the Boomer Left conducted its concealed Long March through the Institutions of the 1970s and 80s to conquer the organs of propaganda in the United States and Europe, the radical left has pursued a near-totalitarian agenda. The result has been a gradual coup d'etat that is visible in the one-party reign of Europe's new appointive ruling class, retaining only the outer mask of electoral legitimacy. In America we have seen the same concealed coup through the regular abuse of racial, gender, ideological, and sexualist preferences in hiring and promotion in government, education, and media. The result is not totalitarian in the killing sense, not yet -- but it is totalitarian in spirit, because its aim is total control over the lives of a free people.

The New York Times hides this reality to cover up its own complicity in the radical Long March through the Institutions, the most important operating manual for the Boomer Left next to Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. It was "Pinch" Sulzberger, after all, who introduced ideological hiring and editorial corruption of a formerly decent (though leftist and politicized) newspaper. Pinch is a Boomer radical, and he brought in his own kind to bring the standards of reporting at the Times to its lowest level in modern history. Faithful readers of the Times are either abandoning it in droves or are clinging to it in a pure act of faith that has no basis in adult reality.

The totalitarian left is not new in American life, and we have survived previous outbreaks of this plague. That does not mean we will survive the current assault, however, since, like the HIV virus, each outbreak learns from the mistakes of the previous one.

Before Joe McCarthy there was Josef Stalin, and the McCarthyist campaign against Communist infiltration makes no sense without understanding the threat of Stalin. FDR's advisor Harry Hopkins is now known to have hopped into a KGB car driving around Washington, and FDR himself surrendered much of Europe to Stalin's Soviet Empire at Yalta, against Churchill's urgent advice. The Manhattan Project was penetrated by Soviet agents, including German physicist Klaus Fuchs, who stole nuclear secrets and went back to East Germany in triumph to become a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party. Fuchs' nuclear espionage was hardly disguised. He was given a medal for it. Even the left admits today that the Rosenbergs and the Cambridge spies in Britain were Soviet agents. France was even worse, if anything. West Germany's governments were penetrated by East German spies. Vladimir Putin was the Soviet KGB head in East Germany.

Call that Chapter 1 of the totalitarian left in America. It did much harm, but the country survived.
After FDR died, the American public rebelled against Stalinist penetration of American institutions, especially after the Soviets exploded nuclear devices based on plans stolen from the Manhattan Project. 

Anti-communism drove the Stalinist left out of public life, and gave room to mainstream liberals to flourish. The liberal AFL-CIO drove out Stalinists, and Ronald Reagan (an FDR Democrat) came face to face with Stalinists in Hollywood when he was president of the Screen Actors' Guild. That experience shaped the rest of his life.

Chapter 2 of the new totalitarian left came to a head in 1968, both here and in Europe, when a new generation of totalitarians staged a comeback. This is hardly a secret anymore. Bill Ayers was one of them: "Kill your parents" being one of his contributions to the lexicon of political philosophy. Saul Alinsky provided the working manual, Rules for Radicals, which guides this administration more than the Constitution. Like the Stalin generation, New Left totalitarians want a one-party system -- it could be called the Democratic Party, since "democracy" is also a lie for the Left.

Since radical leftists -- the Stalinists of yore -- like to celebrate their victories. The New York Times nowadays celebrates the passing of yet another good old Stalinist whenever one kicks the bucket. As for the New Left totalitarians, they were the Sixties radicals who received decades of worship from our radicalized media.

Barack H. Obama is a lifelong product of the radical left, beginning with his communist mother, his Kenyan biological father, and his Hawaiian mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, the race hater and porn writer, who was the Communist Party representative in Hawaii. Frank Davis lived in rage against whites, particularly Americans. Obama picked up much of the same racialist biases. Barry Soetoro lived in the heated aftermath of the Indonesian Civil War, where Muslims, Communists, and the military slaughtered each other by the hundreds of thousands.

Obama looks foreign to Americans because ideologically he is foreign. Marxism is a product of European imperialism of the 19th century, updated by Lenin, Stalin, Mao and all the rest. It is a wacky totalitarian dream; it is not an American set of beliefs; it is profoundly alien to American values.

The Sixties Left gained power using its semi-secret March Through the Institutions, as prescribed by Italian Communist ideologue Antonio Gramsci. In the U.S., the radical left was able to drive a stake through the Equal Protection clause, first for black people, then for women, gays, Muslim "victims," and coming soon, for illegal immigrants. The newly-privileged rulers instantly created a corrupt spoils system, in which only they were given crucial jobs in education, media, and government. That racial leftist spoils system still rules the United States, which is why we are in the fix we see today.

We even know who runs the party line propaganda machine, through the "Journolist" leaks, which saw the UK Guardian (home of the totalitarian left in the UK) sitting at the same electronic table with the New York Times, the Washington Post, and all the other degraded journolistas. Hundreds of times Rush Limbaugh has played the identical words coming from different sock puppets at NBC, CBS, ABC, and the other imitation media. Those identical words are no accident. They are the same because the source and control mechanism is the same. Europe is run by the same gang. The UK Guardianista who sits at the Journolist table coordinates the socialist party line with Der Spiegel and Liberation, and with all the little media outlets that peddle the EUSSR Party Line.

The radical left is now in power in both America and Europe, and whenever they get a chance they act as totalitarians. The single euro currency and the global warming fraud were produced by the same radical ruling class. In America the racial spoils system is used to divide and conquer the country by race, gender, sexual habits, and all the rest. The Supreme Court has surrendered equal rights before the law. The Court claims it is a temporary relief to make up for slavery and Jim Crow. But the totalitarian left will never give up the giant axe it can now wield to cut down the Constitution. There will never be a solution to "racism" as defined by the left because there will never be an end to its lust for power.

The totalitarian left is reflected in Obama's purposeful abuse of the IRS, the FBI (in spying on journalists), the National Security Council (in making secret alliances with the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaida), the EPA (in conniving in massive "global warming" extortion). Obama believes in a Democrat Machine to govern the United States, just the way it runs Chicago.

Obama has nothing but contempt for the democratic opposition, and shows it every chance he gets. When 
Obama was asked whether Congress should not even be consulted after the US-NATO assault on Libya, his reply was to laugh. He does not hide his contempt for the Constitution and for electoral democracy. It now appears that the Bamster has never won an election without leaking legally secret information about his opponents, either sealed divorce records, or, as now seems likely, sealed IRS information about Romney donors.

What the country is facing today is therefore not some accidental mistakes made by a well-intentioned U.S. administration. We are facing a totalitarian ideology driven from the top.

The Stalin time was bad. The Obama time is bad. American democracy recovered from the Stalin period. 

Will we recover from Obama?

Nobody knows the answer today.
