Obama is the Stupidest Man to Hold the Office of President.

I stumbled upon a blog with some posts that I thought were right on point with the way I see things in the USA today. We have been told how smart Obama is so many times that it was starting to make me physically ill. Add to that the very real fact that stupid is as stupid does and when it comes down to just not understanding the way the world works …Obama, arrogant and oblivious to a fault never lets us forget that there is nothing so stupid that he won’t do it or say it. This article gives some classic examples (and lots of them) of the “Messiah” not being able to live up to his own press. I should have known when we were being told every 5 minutes how smart he is not to believe it …I mean why would they start telling the truth about him or anything else now? CJ

America Elected an Ignoramus

By Alan Caruba

I do not write unpleasant things about Barack Hussein Obama because he is a Democrat, a far-left liberal ideologue, a confirmed liar, or the sock-puppet of whatever cabal that chose him long ago to be the President. I write unpleasant things because he is all of these things, but also because he is the most stupid man to have ever held the office of President.

As far back as January 2, 2010 I wrote that Obama had “a make-believe life” because there was no proof that anything he claimed in his two memoirs, written by the age of 45, was true. His resume listed “community organizer”, an amorphous term that could mean anything, as his primary occupation. By October 2010 the Washington Times published a commentary of mine that said “millions of Americans are beginning to ask: Is President Obama just a moron?”
Even prior to his election, he had ensured that his entire paper trail of birth certificates, passports, college records, and other items most people can produce in under five minutes were “sealed” from public review, despite the fact that most modern presidents have had to submit their personal records, short of a colonoscopy exam, for examination. Among his first executive orders was one issued on January 21, 2009 to ensure none of these records saw the light of day.

When he finally produced a birth certificate, forensic analysts deemed it a forgery.

So, what really occurred on Election Day in 2008 was that a majority of voters, guided by an adoring mainstream press, elected an enigma. He rewarded their obsequiousness by being the first President since Grover Cleveland to not attend their annual Gridiron dinner.

Since then, anyone paying any attention has had to conclude that Americans elected an ignoramus, based solely on his own words and actions.

Here’s just a quick look at some of them.

Hans Bader, a scholar with the Competitive Enterprise Institute, addressed recent examples of Obama’s ignorance when he mocked Republicans as members of the Flat Earth Society in Columbus’ day for their skepticism of his green energy policies, among which was a hearty endorsement of algae—pond scum, but Columbus’ contemporaries knew the Earth was round, but doubted he could reach Asia via the Atlantic Ocean. Bader noted that Obama “falsely attributed to Muslims the invention of printing and even falsely claimed that Morocco was the first country to recognize the United States as a new nation.”

The Communist Takeover Of America 45 Goals … How Successful Have they Been? You Decide! (This will disturb you)

 

The Communist Takeover Of
America – 45 Declared Goals

From Greg Swank
12-4-2

You are about to read a list of 45 goals that found their way down the halls of our great Capitol back in 1963. As you read this, 39 years later, you should be shocked by the events that have played themselves out. I first ran across this list 3 years ago but was unable to attain a copy and it has bothered me ever since. Recently, Jeff Rense posted it on his site and I would like to thank him for doing so. http://www.rense.com
 
Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963
Current Communist Goals EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Thursday, January 10, 1963 .
Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.
 
At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:
 
1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.
43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.
 
Note by Webmaster: The Congressional Record back this far has not be digitized and posted on the Internet.
It will probably be available at your nearest library that is a federal repository. Call them and ask them. Your college library is probably a repository. This is an excellent source of government records. Another source are your Congress Critters. They should be more than happy to help you in this matter. You will find the Ten Planks of the Communist Manifesto interesting at this point.

1963- The Year That Changed America
By Greg Swank
12-4-2
Over the years, I have shared in debates and discussions regarding the current state of affairs in the U.S., and the changing social climate of this great nation. Since the “baby-boomer” generation, society and its culture have become noticeably different than the way it was 50 years ago. From the late 50’s to the 70’s a series of events took place contributing to the way we are currently living. However, like anything else, there has to be a starting point at which the wheels are put into motion. Sometimes it can be a single event, such as war, but more often, it is a series of events, some intentional, some planned, others unpredictable. There is always a pivotal point when things begin to change. I believe that time was 1963.
For my generation, some of the following will certainly stir old memories. If you born later, this may serve as a brief history lesson into the times your parents traveled through.
By 1963 television was the leading sources of entertainment. The public enjoyed a different type of programming back then. Lessons on life could be viewed weekly on “Leave it to Beaver” or “My Three Sons.” There were hero’s back then that never drew blood, “The Lone Ranger” and “The Adventures of Superman.” Cartoon series evolved, such as, “The Flintstones” and “The Jetsons” without messages of empowering the children, using vulgarities or demeaning parental guidance. Family’s could spend a weekend evening watching “Ed Sullivan,” “Bonanza” or “Gunsmoke.” For those who enjoyed thrill and suspense, we were blessed with “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” and the “Twilight Zone.” ‘My Favorite Martian,” “Ozzie and Harriet,” “Donna Reed” and “Sea Hunt” also kept viewers entertained weekly.
 
Movie theaters were not multiplex units with 15 screens, rather, one single, giant big screen with adequate sound and hard seats without springs. “Tom Jones” had won the Academy award for best picture. “How The West Was Won,” “Cleopatra,” “Lily of the Fields,” “The Great Escape,” “The Birds,” and “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” were all box office hits.
By years end, “The Beatles” had played for the British Royal Family and were laying the groundwork to conquer the U.S. the following year. Eric Clapton began his journey to fame with Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Jim McCarty and their band, “The Yardbirds.” Out on the west coast the surf was beginning to rock’n’roll with “The Beach Boys” and their first song to reach the top ten list, “Surfin’ U.S.A.”
 
“Joys of Jell-O” recipes for quivering florescent foodstuff hit the stores. U.S. Postal rates went up to five cents for the first ounce. AT&T introduced touch-tone telephones. The Yankees played in the World Series again; but lost to the Dodgers in four straight. The government and NASA began the Apollo program.
This is just a brief snapshot of some things that were going on back in 1963. Remember?
 
While some of these events played an important role in the direction of change that affect us today, many of them were lost to much greater, more political events, that I believe put everything into motion.
 
On January 10, 1963, the House of Representative and later the Senate began reviewing a document entitled “Communist Goals for Taking Over America.” It contained an agenda of 45 separate issues that, in hindsight was quite shocking back then and equally shocking today. Here, in part, are some key points listed in that document.
 
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states.
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind.
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
27. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
 
You can see the entire list on this web page – http://www.truthtrek.net/politics/takeover.htm
Now, I am not saying that the U.S. is under some kind of Communist control, but what I do find frightening, is of the 45 issues listed, nearly all of them have come to pass. Remember this was in January 1963.
 
In 1963 the news media showed women burning their bras as the women’s liberation movement took off with the publishing of “The Feminine Mystique” by Betty Friedan. Martin Luther King was jailed in April and civil unrest was being brought to the forefront. On August 28th the media brought us live coverage of the march on Washington and Dr. Kings famous “I had a dream” speech. The Cuban missile crisis found its way in to our homes and our nation was gearing up for conflict.
 
By September of 1963 we had lost some very influential people, Pope John XXIII, Robert Frost, and country legend Patsy Cline, to name a few. In the early hours of November 22nd we learned of the quiet passing of C.S. Lewis and hours later we were brought to our knees when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated and our nation mourned.
So you see, while long since forgotten, 1963 could very well have been, one of the most important years since our founding fathers provided us with the Constitution of the United States. Which brings me to one final and extremely important decision that was made during this most provocative year.
 
On June 17, 1963 the U.S. Supreme Court concluded that any Bible reciting or prayer, in public schools, was deemed unconstitutional.
While American’s have endured great prosperity over the past 40 years we have also lost our moral compass and direction. In reviewing the research, data supports 1963 as a focal point, demonstrating a downward slope in our moral and social decline through 2001.
 
Certainly, one would have to agree that all of these events have had a profound impact on the way our current social structure has been changed. Personally, if I had to choose one specific event that has demonstrated the demoralization of our country, it would have to be the decision of the U.S Supreme Court in June of 1963.
But there is always “hope.” As always, I welcome your comments and can easily be reached. Thanks for the response to “Daddy, What’s Fluoride?” My email is: greg@truthtrek.net

There is NO Recovery and there are no Jobs!… How Many Times do You Need to be Told?

“During the times of universal deceit …Telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act! ”

George Orwell

I have said from the start that the economic numbers we are being spoon fed by the Obama Adnministration are false, wrong, cooked and contrived. Obviously Obama took to heart the statistic that says that no incumbent has ever been re elected with unemployment over 8%…don’t worry…we will get there!

How to Collapse the Global Economy an Usher in The New World Order in 5 Easy Steps…Here is the Plan!

Approximately 6 years  ago …I changed my viewpoint on the existence and influence of a cabal of international financiers and ith the passage of time I am more certain of that position than I hav ever been. It didn’t happen by hitting my head or one of those ‘Pauline Conversions’ (on the road to Damascus) suddenly causing me to  admit to myself that  I could no longer continue to deny, rationalize , reject and ignore all of the evidence I had seen. At first I was only willing to admit it was far more likely that  nothing I was being told was true. I have spent a great deal of time and energy connecting the dots …by believing what I was seeing and NOT what I was hearing from others. Even if we only go back to the turn of the century and only connect the dots going forward from the year 2000 the only conclusion that explains it all is this:

 We are being manipulated by a small group of people who’s goal is to manufacture and orchestrate events that will cause untold levels of pain and suffering for all of us until we will eagerly and willingly trade our freedoms and liberty by agreeing to systemic changes designed to enslave humanity.

 To say that I have encountered skeptics of this theory all along the way would be a gross understatement. I have been called a conspiracy nut and worse by all of the people who are too blind, lazy or stupid to take the time to see things as they really are. It recently dawned on me that perhaps it would be helpful  to explain how this will come about …instead of just telling people that it will. Here is my theory …take a few minutes to read and consider this information ….Feel free to ask questions and try to poke holes in any part of it you can. If you do that, then I promise to respond to every single comment…Over the years I have taken a lot of heat and been subjected to name calling and ridicule for this position so do me a favor and take some time to really consider what I am saying and then you be the judge and you decide.

 What I think I know:

Based upon what I have seen and the research I have done… This plan and process has 5 different and easily identified steps to it. We have all heard and repeated the chilling comment made by Rahm Emanuel when he was caught telling the truth on day by saying:

“Never let a perfectly good  crisis go to waste”

 Step One: Define the Goal, and  Set the Stage

The efforts to usher in a New World Order have been going on for a very long time. Throughout all of the steps in taking over the world… it is important to make sure that everyone possible be paying attention. The goal of Step 1 was too find a way of orchestrating the collapse  or near collapse of the global economy in such a way that it draws attention to the issue…This step started taking place long ago and culminated during the last days of the Bush admiration shortly after we lost Lehman Brothers and in the confusion and chorus of the outgoing Bush administration and the transitioning into the Obama administration, we were softened up and then bombarded by media reports telling us that if we didn’t take immediate action that the world would come to an end and life as we knew it would cease. Experts lined up to agree …Congress found it easier to jump on the bandwagon and try to grab as much of the stimulus money porkfest as possible, instead of turning on their brains…asking questions…and doing their jobs. The goal had been set long ago and the stage was set ..the economy was booming along with the housing boom and real estate bubble and easy money availability leading the way.

 Step Two- Manufacture a Crisis To Get Everyone’s Attention then Frame the  National / Global Conversation 

 If you don’t think the 2008 economic meltdown was manufactured then you don’t understand what happened. I have know intention of taking you through it all right now because that’s not the point of this post …suffice it to say that had the government intervened to save Lehman Brothers instead of inexplicably deciding to let them go under was on of the events that started the dominoes to start falling.  Panic, and fear ensued, the shock waves it sent out devastated the capital markets setting the stage for Tim Geithner and Co. (All the Presidents Goldman Men) using fear as their weapon, to quickly push through  bail out and stimulus legislation totaling  a trillion dollars to be allocated  and spent. Over the course of the next 4 years millions of jobs were lost, and the economy and the crash of 08 is still the hottest topic of conversation even today. During this period we have been told that things were improving but we weren’t out of the woods yet so when the global economy collapses for real no one will question it or be surprised . The crisis of 08 was the equivalent of whacking your dog on the nose with a rolled up newspaper to get his attention so you know he will listen carefully to the next thing you say.

 Step 3 – Bring in the People Who Engineered the Crisis to “Solve it” and Incur Unsustainable Debt Obligations and Empty the Treasuries of Every Country Trying to do it.

This step combined with Obama’s election victory and the new supermajorities of the democrats in Congress caused by the scapegoating of the outgoing co conspirator (Bush) gave the planners the opportunity to bring in the same exact people who engineered the collapse  under the guise of coming up with solutions for fixing it. And of course their solution  was to spend ridiculous amounts of money trying to stimulate the economy and create jobs etc. while running up the taxpayers credit cards all the way to the max (5 trillion in 3 years so far). The other purpose was to make sure they were able to make it so the global community had expended all of their borrowing power and assets so that when the collapse comes they will have nothing left at their disposal to combat it with. They want to make sure that when they make their final assault on humanity that we have already used all of the tools at our disposal ..and all of the arrows in our quiver …so that when the next collapse came we will not only be easier to enslave …we will actually ask them to do it. Lastly, the failure of the stimulus plans and all of the government spending will  show the people that throwing all of that money at the problem had no effect adding to the hopelessness of anything that comes after .To our credit we are just starting to look round and ask where all of the money went  and the truth is they haven’t spent  most of it yet because in order to move to Step 4 the stimulus wasn’t supposed to work. Currently the banks are artificially manipulating their books whi8le the Obama regime is busy cooking our economic data (unemployment etc.)  so it looks like we are healing …when in fact we are not.

Step Four -Collapse the Global Economy and Make it as Bad and as Long as it has to be to Gain Compliance.

This is coming soon to a city state and country near you. When it will occur is anybody’s guess . It won’t happen until they are certain that we (the people of the global community)  won’t have the resources or ability to respond. It will happen very quickly and ruthlessly and the pain, hardship, death and destruction will be as bad as it needs to be and last as long as it has to in order for us to accept the terms for ending it.  

 Step Five – Welcome to the New World Order.

The global economy will be run by a World Central Bank (think of a dictatorship over everyone) and run on a regional basis by the existing central banks like the European Central Bank …the African Central Bank and on down through the other unions like a great big pyramid that will control all global finance and with it every man woman and child in it. Over the course of the last several decades this same group of banksters  have crashed currencies, toppled dictators and have been the cause of wholesale  suffering and death as they slowly and methodically took over the currencies and established their central banks across the globe. Their grip on this country is so great that they regularly use our military might to fight their wars and invade the targeted countries for them. Lately we have used the US Military to eliminate  countries who controlled their own currencies and/or contained Islamic financial centers  (who charge no interest on loans for religious reasons) Very few of those countries and currencies  still remain …Syria and Iran happen to be two of the last major countries left with Iran being home for 3 of the top 5 Islamic financial centers in the middle  east.  Go figure

Putin’s plan for Russia’s neighbors – a Eurasian Union …In more ways than 1!

Vladimir Putin is charging forward with his plans to establish a new strategic space by way of what he has named the “Eurasian Union“.  I made a point to keep an eye on this project ever since  I heard Putin start to talk about it. At the time I thought the idea itself  had alot of merit and was worth it on the basis of it’s announced goals alone. Fast forward to today and dig a into the story line a little deeper and it is clear that just like everything else Russia is ..says or does… there are many many faces to anything the Russians dream up.  Here is a little more information from the Hurriyet Daily News

Putin’s plan for Russia’s neighbors – a Eurasian Union

by ELKHAN NURIYEV

With the current focus on policy interactions between Russia, the United States and the European Union in the post-Soviet space, many wonder what future awaits the countries of the former USSR after Vladimir Putin’s re-ascension to the Russian presidency in the March 4 election. One question is whether Putin will succeed in shaping a new, distinctive strategic space with the curious name of “the Eurasian Union.”

Clearly, the principal focus for Putin’s foreign policy will be relations with the Near Abroad, as the Russians like to call the CIS countries. Although it is difficult to predict whether Putin will be capable of completing his reintegration project in the next few years, the troubled nature of relations between Russia and the CIS countries, and among the post-Soviet states themselves, will make his task even harder.

Whether the post-Soviet states remain at the center of international strategic affairs will also depend considerably on foreign policies emanating from the U.S., the EU, Turkey, Iran and China, given that global trends in areas such as energy, trade, capital investment, migration and other security issues will play a crucial role. Last but not least, there is a broader concern about how precisely Putin will create a “new supra-national union” of sovereign states if some of the CIS leaders refuse to follow the Kremlin-established rules of the game. This key question will have a number of important strategic implications for those post-Soviet countries, whose democratic transformation is still incomplete, and where fierce competition over energy resources, security interests and political futures could easily flare up again.

Finally… A Teachable Moment from a Professor Dundero Rant … Point – Counterpoint …You decide who makes the most sense!

 

I stumbled upon the latest op ed by one of my favorite progressive targets and

decided, that in the spirit of not letting a tragic event go to waste, have attempted to turn, what can only be described as a steaming pile of “all occasion” progressive talking points …into a teachable moment and a snap shot into the mind of today’s intolerant left winger. Amazingly, (and no doubt quite by accident,) this column showcases and embodies many of the most destructive anti America progressive talking points and in doing so attempts to advance a myopic and malignant worldview that bears no resemblance to reality.

Here is the short article that appeared last week in the Forest Grove News Times followed by my criticism and analysis right after….

Justices’ questions troubling

By Professor Russ Dondero

Apr 11, 2012

Following the Supreme Court’s review of the Patient’s Affordable Health Care Act, complete with myopic and juvenile comments about broccoli and burial plots, I wondered in what world the justices live.

Obamacare” is designed to close the health care gap that leaves 50 million people without insurance, forcing them into local emergency rooms, the most costly medical option that imposes a hidden $1,000 annual fee or a mandate on those with insurance to pick up the bill.

The choice is not between mandate or no mandate; it’s a choice between a law which requires everyone to be responsible or the status quo, which levies a de facto mandate on every medical bill the insured pay.

The judges ignored the fact that if the law is declared unconstitutional, 50,000 children with pre-existing conditions and 2.5 million young people currently on their parent’s health care plan will lose coverage.

Seniors will lose the protection of a gradually closing “donut hole” for meds. Most significantly the 30 million who would have been covered by 2014 will be denied coverage in a system which gobbles up 16 percent of our gross domestic product.

Maybe, like Rip Van Winkle, we’ll wake up in late June with the Supremes admitting it was an April Fools joke.

If, on the other hand, the Court declares Obamacare unconstitutional it will complete a triple play of cases begun with Bush v. Gore and Citizens United, enabling the Court conservatives to complete a judicial coup d’état.

Activist GOP judges, with their brethren in the Congress, are pursuing an ideological and partisan scheme to deny millions of Americans health care.

Martin Luther King Jr., in his Letter from Birmingham Jail, said, “an unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law. Any law that uplifts human personality is just. Any law that degrades human personality is unjust…”

MLK concluded that “all segregation statutes are unjust because segregation distorts the soul and damages the personality…” Millions of Americans with no health care insurance face a de facto form of segregation.

When Justice Kennedy, the so-called swing vote on the court, commented that “freedom is the freedom not to rescue…” and “the reason [the individual mandate] is concerning is because it requires the individual to do an affirmative act. In the law of torts, our tradition, our law has been that you don’t have the duty to rescue someone if that person is in danger… absent some relation between you…” – whatever that means!

If Justice Kennedy is right, then explain to me the actions of the first responders during 9/11.

Were our brave heroes “unfree”? Or were they giving evidence that there is a higher law than Kennedy’s morally withered version of torts? Kennedy’s response that there is some “severe moral criticism of that rule” is an understatement.

In the battle for civil rights the debate gradually moved from laws on the books (de jure discrimination) to institutional racism (de facto discrimination). The health care debate is on that same moral trajectory.

Are we OK with a health care system which by actuarial practice creates a form of de facto discrimination while at the same time passing costs off to the insured to cover the uninsured in a hidden tax or mandate?

Justice Kennedy claims the law has nothing to do with moral or the higher law, just torts: acts that cause harm, usually economic harm. In effect, Kennedy has reduced the law to matters of property rights not human rights.

Kennedy’s view could be the basis of an assault on the progress since the Brown v. Board decision in 1954, the passage of the 1964-65 Civil Right Acts, plus laws which protect those with disabilities and gays from discrimination.

The passage of Obamacare must be viewed in the context of health care disparities that pit the haves v. the have-nots in our nation. The goal of universal health care is the civil rights issue of this generation.

If neo-con judicial activists on the Court, using a bogus originalist theory of the law, win this battle by a 5-4 vote, then what else is on their agenda? I think we know: Roe v. Wade and immigration reforms, like the Dream Act.

If Obamacare is struck down, there is only one solution for liberals: Advocate constitutional amendments to end lifetime tenure of federal judges and subject them to reappointment by the U.S. Senate every 10 years. It’s time the left took the gloves off against rogue justices.

HERE IS MY TEACHABLE MOMENT TAKEN FROM PROF DUNDERO’S THOUGHTFUL RANT.

 What, drunk with choler?

Thank you Prof. Dundero for giving us this latest installment of left wing nonsense. In the spirit of not letting a tragic event go to waste, let me attempt to turn what can only be described as a steaming pile of “all occasion” progressive talking points …into a teachable moment and a snap shot into the mind of today’s intolerant left winger.

Amazingly, (and no doubt quite by accident,) this column showcases and embodies many of the most destructive anti America progressive talking points and in doing so attempts to advance a myopic and malignant worldview that bears no resemblance to reality. What do I mean?

For starters, its impossible to not notice the difficulties the left has with understanding and accurately framing issues. The reason for this can’t possibly be born out of a legitimate lack of understanding …instead it finds its genesis in political desperation and an embarrassingly limited number of frames to choose from. Last month Sandra Fluke delivered her testimony to Congress chastising the right for not jumping at the chance to pick up the tab for her $3,000.00 a year condom habit….the left’s response? They dug out the tried and true, one size fits all issue frame (think of a Walmart picture frame) where they ignore the real issue, impute evil motives and spin out the “War on Women” …Dundero goes on his little rant on what he thinks the Supremes are going to do to Obamacare and instead of identifying the legal issues being considered digs into his progressive frame bag…imputes the evil motives of the right, and spins this bit of gibberish:

” The choice is not between mandate or no mandate; it’s a choice between a law which requires everyone to be responsible or the status quo”

AND this unforgettable paranoid fantasy (he accepts as fact)

“Activist GOP Judges with their brethren in congress are pursuing an ideological and partisan scheme to deny millions of Americans healthcare” Really? Doers anyone with a functioning brain believe that the Constitutional deficiencies being deliberated are nothing more than a smoke and mirrors distraction designed to cloak the secret scheme of the evil GOP to ‘deny healthcare” to 50 million Americans? LOL Never one to miss an opportunity to double down on stupid Dundero then asks us all to reaaaaacchhhh with him …and I do mean reach … so he can bring us along with him to neverland where he is able to sprinkle liberal fairy dust and use the (ironically) most popular progressive issue frame … racism. All it takes is a quick, out of context quote from MLK to allow him to conclude:

“Millions of Americans with no health care insurance face a de facto form of segregation.”

AND

“In the battle for civil rights the debate gradually moved from laws on the books (de jure discrimination) to institutional racism (de facto discrimination). The health care debate is on that same moral trajectory.”

AND

“The goal of universal health care is the civil rights issue of this generation”

HUH? …Ahhhh of course …it’s a civil rights issue …now I get it? Those evil scheming racist right wingers are secretly trying to advance their war on minorities… got it! See what I mean?

Anyone who has ever tried to engage a lefty in a rational political discussion knows the frustration of trying to keep the conversation on point and not allow it to wander off the tracks where the issue devolves into a discussion and defense of the contrived motives of those who do understand what the reality based issues are. In Russ’s world if you don’t think the government has the power to require everyone to buy a product if they don’t want too ….then you must be a racist! (and a hater …just saying)

When the left is able to stuff an issue behind one of their 4-6 standard frames and then takes free license with the rules of logic …the result is generally a head scratcher and a good laugh, like the examples above. When they start to apply their frames to the locus solus nonsense made clear by dint of rational explanation), the predictable results are anything but ludic diversions. This approach is great when you want to appear revolutionary, but terrible when you want to be evolutionary and build on previously developed knowledge (one of the building blocks of conservative thought). Dundero demonstrates this principle in spades and shines a bright light on the lefts hypocritical beliefs on tolerance.

Archbishop Chaput of Philadelphia, in a Lenten Letter to his pastoral flock, said that “evil preaches tolerance until it is dominant and then tries to silence good.” The secular left, having preached tolerance for years, is proving the Archbishop right with their new found intolerance for opposing views. Hopefully everyone has seen some of the videos of union knee breakers showing up on the doorsteps of private citizens to scare them into submission. Or more recently the lefts anemic attempt to silence Rush Limbaugh by calling for boycotts and active harassment of his advertisers… These are the people who Dundero thinks should be in charge of safeguarding our freedoms? In his article he puts forth the half baked idea shared by progressives that completely rejects the notion of majority rule and replaces it with their own modified version where the majority still rules….but only as long as the majority stays in lock step with their thinking…when the majority finds itself at odds with the left then rather than accept the will of the majority …progressives go right to work to change the ground rules…like wanting to be able to replace conservative Supreme Court Justices or ignoring the expressed will of the voters on gay marriage and try end runs through the courts in front of liberal or gay judges.

Dundero’s treatise on progressive lunacy doesn’t disappoint in this regard at all he says:

“if Obama-care is struck down, there is only one solution for liberals: Advocate constitutional amendments to end lifetime tenure of federal judges and subject them to reappointment by the U.S. Senate every 10 years. It’s time the left took the gloves off against rogue justices.”

Good thinking Russ …if you don’t get your way and your ideas have been thoroughly rejected by the majority or you don’t like the way a judge or justice rules in a case then you are right…there is only one solution left for liberals …take off those gloves and intimidate those judges you can’t replace the same way the union parasites intimidate people or the Black Panthers intimidate voters to keep them in line…. Have you ever thought through some of the breathtakingly stupid things you write? …Amazing! Thank you for supplying this textbook template of what passes for ‘liberal thought” and the quick look into the twisted mind of the anti america, anti freedom, might makes right…leftwingers
