The IRS Is Not Out Of Control

Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice, provided an interesting perspective on last week’s House Oversight hearing on the IRS targeting scandal.

During the hearing, emails were presented showing that after seeing a draft copy of an IRS Inspector General report on the political targeting of non-profits, Lois Lerner told her co-workers to be “cautious” in their email communications because “Congress might be watching.” She also asked the IRS IT department if the department’s internal chat system was searchable.

Lerner’s IT colleague, Maria Hooke, responded, “No, the IRS does not routinely save chat communications – unless employees intentionally take steps to preserve their conversations.  These chat communications are not saved – and this is critical – despite the fact that “the functionality exists within the software.”

And how did Lerner respond?  “Perfect.”

I am reminded of something Lord Acton once said, “Everything secret degenerates, even the administration of justice; nothing is safe that does not show how it can bear discussion and publicity.”

Or, as Jay Sekulow opined, “Some have said the IRS was out of control.  I’d say the opposite.  It was very much in control – doing exactly what it was intended to do with relative impunity, including setting up its own IT resources not to preserve records but to cover its tracks.”

The online dictionary defines conspiracy as “an evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan formulated in secret by two or more persons; plot, a combination of persons for a secret, unlawful, or evil purpose, an agreement by two or more persons to commit a crime, fraud, or other wrongful act.”

American citizens live in constant fear of the IRS wrecking havoc on their lives, seizing their assets and throwing them in prison – and all with impunity. Yet evidence now shows that Lois Lerner and certain colleagues at the IRS clearly conspired to punish select politically conservative individuals and non-profits; actions that are a clear violation of federal law.

If this were an isolated incident one could make the case that Lerner and her cohorts could have been given appropriate reprimands and the IRS resumed normal business operations. But this is not an isolated case. Political targeting and retaliation by the IRS has been standard operating procedure since the agency’s inception. It is part of the organizational and operational DNA.

The Lerner case demands a special prosecutor. And America demands that the IRS be given a national pink slip.

Cracks in the Democrats’ Foundation

In a WorldNetDaily column of July 16, titled, “Why they won’t let us talk to the illegal kids,” talk radio pioneer Barry Farber suggested that, “the reason we in media are not allowed to talk to the children is that the conversation in every honest interview will get around to, ‘What made you all risk so much to get here?’  The answer will be, ‘Oh! Mama and Papa heard it many times. Your President Obama has found many little ways to say, ‘Come on up!  We won’t send you back!’ ”

Barry’s very ominous prediction was that, “The minute that awareness reaches critical mass, Obama, his works, his team, and the Democratic Party will suffer a rejection that will make the Republican years in political purgatory seem like a quick tour-bus jaunt through hell.”

One of my major regrets is that, barring divine intervention, I will not be around to see how historians will chronicle America’s post-constitutional period: the last half of the 20th century and the first 16 years of the 21st century.  These are the years during which one of our major political parties, the Democrat Party, created an ideological plantation on which they cynically attempted to imprison an entire ethnic minority.

Rarely in human history has any civilized nation so offended basic human decency than did the United States during the era of slavery, between 1619 and the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation in 1861. In fact, many Americans found the institution of slavery to be so morally repugnant that a new political party, the Republican Party, was spawned out of the abolitionist movement.

The Republican Party was founded in a schoolhouse in Ripon, Wisconsin, on March 20, 1854.  Anti-slavery sentiment was so strong in some northern and border states that the party was able to elect its first president, Abraham Lincoln, in 1860, just six years later.  In the ensuing 104 years, Republicans fought what seemed an endless battle against Democrats who longed for the return of slavery and who opposed basic human rights for former slaves and their descendants.

  • A Republican president, Abraham Lincoln, signed the Emancipation Proclamation.
  • It was Republicans who drafted and passed the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, outlawing slavery and giving blacks citizenship and the right to vote.
  • It was Democrat-controlled legislatures across the South who enacted the Black Codes and the Jim Crow laws.
  • In 1866, it was Democrats who created the Ku Klux Klan as a paramilitary arm of their party.  Its purpose was to intimidate, terrorize, and murder black people.  In the years between 1882 and 1951, some 3,437 blacks and 1,293 whites, nearly all Republicans, were lynched by the KKK.
  • It was Republicans who authored the Civil Rights Act of 1866, the Reconstruction Act of 1867, the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871, and the Civil Rights Act of 1875.
  • It was Democrats who wrote and passed the Repeal Act of 1894, repealing much of the civil rights legislation passed by Republicans in the years since the close of the Civil War.  In other instances, a Democrat-dominated U.S. Supreme Court declared elements of the Republican civil rights legislation to be unconstitutional.
  • It was a Republican president, Dwight D. Eisenhower, who authored the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and the Civil Rights Act of 1960.  Later, it was the strong support of Republicans that made the Civil Rights Act of 1964 possible… a law that was almost identical, word-for-word, to the Republicans’ Civil Rights Act of 1875, overturned by a Democrat-dominated U.S. Supreme Court.  And finally, it was a Republican president, Richard Nixon, who signed the Equal Employment Act of 1972.

It was not until the Brown vs. Board of Education decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in the mid-1950s that Democrats finally decided that, if they could no longer control blacks through violence and intimidation, they would have to buy their hearts, their minds, and their votes with an endless variety of social welfare programs.  Since that time, and to their great discredit, blacks have turned their backs on the Republicans who worked so tirelessly and so valiantly on their behalf.  Instead, they now cast more than 90% of their votes for white Democrats, those who were their oppressors for more than three centuries.  Never in the history of man has a race of people shown such ingratitude toward those who were their principal benefactors.

But now it appears that a schism is beginning to develop in the black man’s love affair with the Democrat Party. For the past sixty years, Democrats have been laying sloppy, slobbering kisses all over our black population. But what blacks are now learning is that, what they took to be undying love and devotion, was nothing more than a prelude to a cheap one-night stand.

Bernadette Lancelin, a black mother in Houston, apparently a former Obama supporter, recently found herself being interviewed by a Houston TV station. She said she was furious that Barack Obama wants to spend nearly $4 billion on Central American kids who’ve entered the country illegally.  She said, “What about the kids here?  What about the kids here in our neighborhood?  And not just in our neighborhood, but in our country? All these (illegal immigrant) kids, really?  Why can’t they go back?” She said, “I’m sorry that their parents are in poor living conditions or surroundings or whatever’s going on out there. I don’t care. I care about what’s going on right here in my own back yard, my neighborhood.”

Mychal Massie, a black writer and talk show host in Los Angeles, has said, “I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate (the Obamas) as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are.  There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color… Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader.”

She went on to say, “He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed.  Even by the low standard of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequaled.  Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood.”

In a July 14 editorial for Minuteman News, titled “Democrats’ New Trophy Wife,” attorney A.J. Delgado writes, “Democrats have built a brand as the party willing to stand up for black Americans, but the amnesty push (for illegal Hispanic immigrants) shows what a false promise that was.  The message to black voters is: ‘Yes, your ancestors endured unimaginable hardships and helped build this country, and we said we’d help you out.  But now we have a new trophy wife.’  Meanwhile, the harm to African Americans is not limited to reduced wages, greater competition for jobs, and declining household incomes… now even the black history of suffering is being diluted.  Liberal columnist and CNN pundit Sally Kohn penned a column last week arguing that the term ‘illegal immigrant’ is the same as the N-word.”

If there is a silver lining in the current immigration crisis along our southern border, it is that a great many previously disinterested or complacent Americans are being awakened to the evils of Barack Obama and the Democrat Party.  William Gheen, president of the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC predicts that, on the weekend of July 19-20, more than 300 protest rallies will take place in cities all across the country.  He said, “Our goal is to unify Americans of all races, political parties, and walks of life against the Obama-inspired illegal immigrant invasion.”

What is finally beginning to dawn on African Americans is that Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and other Democrats have long taken them for granted… assuming that, once a black man is bought, he will stay bought.  It is apparent that what Democrats are hoping is that Hispanics will become the most sought-after minority voting bloc.  Add those votes to the black vote, the labor vote, and the public employee vote, along with the votes of trial lawyers, radical feminists, radical environmentalists, gays, lesbians, and transvestites, and they expect to have a winning coalition that will maintain them in power until the end of time.

Delgado likens the Democrats’ current attitude toward blacks to the husband who leaves his wife after 30 years of marriage, saying, “We’ve had a good run, honey, but I’ve found someone new.”  He says, “Yes, black America… it’s closing time and there’s a younger, hotter version of you out there on the dance floor, and the Democrats are laying on the charm, slick one-liners, and cash to buy her affections… and votes.”

But now, in a stroke of irony that not even Hollywood screen writers could have visualized, we find that it is a black president and a black attorney general who are most responsible for the fissures that are beginning to appear in the once-solid Democrat base. Yes, cracks are beginning to appear in the Democrats’ foundation. For the good of mankind, let’s all hope that Barry Farber’s prediction comes true and that Obama and his criminal conspirators will be soon be accorded the ignominy they so richly deserve.

The Middle East, Ideology, Oil and Ukraine

While I was about to publish this column, a Malaysian civilian airliner was shot down in Ukraine. This is a horrific event–298 human beings from different countries have been murdered in cold blood…I hope that my series of articles helps you to comprehend what is going on in the world…Wake up Europe! Do not repeat the mistake of the 1938! Soviet Fascism is coming… Stop it now!

George Santayana wrote, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” The “those” he was referring to are “us.”

There is an all out war in Ukraine, in the middle of Europe against Russian aggression and a war in Israel after three children were kidnapped and found murdered by Hamas. Iraq is burning and all of the above is a harbinger of a direct threat to Western civilization and America. The symptoms are already here. We are witnessing a crisis on our borders, thousands of children from Central America invading our country and we are defenseless, our immigration system is collapsing, being overburdened. Strange events are going on with the IRS, which is targeting Obama’s political opponents by using fraud and cover-ups. Our media is divided on the left and right, and as usual missing the real culprits that destabilized the world.

What would you say, if I told you that all the above and many other events were orchestrated and coordinated, they have the same source and root cause? Don’t you think that the Obama promise to transform America is a reality of our life, and in fact, he is also transforming the entire world?? Just look at the destruction across the globe, as a result of Obama’s Foreign Policy. Maybe now people grasp my concept of WWIII? I hope they do. In case, they don’t, here is another attempt to convince them. To comprehend the world predicament, I will discuss three fundamental topics: History, Geography, and Ideology.

History and Geography

After the end of WW1 with Turkey’s defeat, the Ottoman Empire (Osman Empire) crumbled, a vast territory, ruled by centuries was left abandoned. To get the real idea of the territory and its huge political implication, here is the description in Wikipedia: “From Constantinople, the Ottomans ruled over an empire that, at its peak, covered Anatolia, most of the Middle East, North Africa, the Caucasus, and extended deep into Eastern Europe.”The Allied victory in World War I also resulted in the end of Ottoman suzerainty and control in Arabia.This huge expand of land, populated predominantly by the Muslim tribes,needed to be administered.

The victorious Allies, especially England and France began remaking the world map in their tradition of divide and conquer. It took several years.The Treaty of Lausanne was a peace treaty signed in Lausanne, Switzerland on 24 July, 1923. It officially ended the state of war that had existed between Turkey and the Allies.That way several new states came to life. To be exact,several states were constructed by the Allies:Iraq,Syria,Lebanon,and Jordan.The following decades we were witnessing the constant dictatorships, assassinations, and sectarian struggle in these countries, especially in Iraq.

There was another fundamental change in the world after the end of WWI — Russian Socialist Revolution of 1917

In addition to the ethnic, sectarian, and religious animosity, a new Ideology was introduced, dividing the entire world into Western civilization and its ideological opponents Socialists/Communists. Moreover, that ideology became the source and the root cause of Modern Terrorism. Let me ask you a question. Have you heard about the Jihadist Terrorism in 1960-1970s? You have not,just look at the history of those days.

John Kennedy was assassinated in 1963. At the time we did not hear often the word terrorist, and fifty per cent of Americans today believe in conspiracy theory not to the Warren Commission. Robert Kennedy was assassinated in 1968. For the first time we had a small Muslim involvement and suspected that the assassin had a mental illness. At the time, there was no endless shootings in the schools by mentally ill people like today and America did not pay attention to the suspicions. In 1979 there was a tragedy in Guyana, where nine hundred Americans, black and white, among them three hundred children, had been poisoned by the KGB special operation. What is Happening to America? pp. 284-285. The answer to the current events and some past suspicions can be found in the Ideology.

Ideology

The world knows three prolific authors of the Socialist/Communist ideology. The founder Karl Marx, the Father and leader of the Socialist Revolution in Russia, Vladimir Lenin, and the builder of the Soviet Socialism, Joseph Stalin. These three authors left to the world their personalized versions of the Socialist/Communist ideology: Marx’s Theory we called Marxism, Lenin’s Doctrine-Leninism, and Stalin’s Doctrine-Stalinism. Due to the different times and locations in the world, three authors presented slightly different versions of the ideology. Yet all three have one fundamental identity or unity–it is a transnational ideology that has a global application.

It is for a reason, I began these series with definition of Socialism/Communism presented by Marx and Engels. I have studied Marxism-Leninism at the law school for four years. I loved it, because Marxism was the only information from the West–I was living on the other side of the Iron Curtain ton. In addition to that, I was a child of Stalinism. As a tiny girl, I saw and heard Stalin many times and I used to love him. Being a defense attorney for 25 years , I went through the history of his crimes, when I met some of the victims of the 1930s-1950s,who had returned from the Gulags.There was no more love for Stalin–knowledge of his crimes has brought the opposite feeling and desire to share this knowledge with decent people. All my books and articles are dedicated to this goal…

The fireball launched by Marxism in the 19th century had successfully moved along the globe to the 20th  21st. centuries. I have found some fraudulent and utopias ideas in Marxism, hence, they were often used by adventurers, charlatans, and criminals to acquire power, to fool, mislead, and then abuse and exploit people around the globe. The leader who combined all three features of the characters mentioned above and who preached the arsenal of Marx’s rhetoric, but practiced his own ideology was Joseph Stalin–the designer of Soviet Socialism. As a matter of fact, all the symptoms of destruction in America and those listed in the first paragraph lie in deep knowledge of Stalinism or in the absence of it. Knowledge brings competence, especially in foreign affairs.

One hundred years ago, on June 28, 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was assassinated by Gavrila Princip. It is important to know that the group of conspiracy (Slaves and Muslims) was acting under the supervision of Chief Serbian Military Intelligence Drugatin Dimitrijevic. WWI began. The lust for power by the Intelligence , the ethnic and religious animosity, and nationalism had produced WW1. The point is that Joseph Stalin was a witness of the entire events from the beginning to the end; it was the time of his political maturity, his political career took off–at the time, he got an assignment to become the organizer of Marxist groups on the Caucuses, the location predominantly populated by the Muslims.

Stalin was 17-18 years old, when he dropped out from the Orthodox Christian Seminary. The Seminary gave him knowledge of the history, several religions and their deep social place in the world. The Prince by Machiavelli was his favorite book.Yes, he did not graduate from any universities or law schools, his university was the Muslim culture on the streets, he was surrounded by it from early childhood and he loved Muslim culture much more than Christianity. It is Muslim culture that made him street-smart, it taught him how to lie, mislead, deceive, manipulate and many other nefarious traits and behaviors. He learned both faces of Islam Sunni and Shiite, their brutality and eternal fight. He learned to use both. Moreover, he learned the Islamic brutality of the 7th century, you could see it in the Russian history of 1920-1950s.

It is for a reason, I started these series with Marxism and Stalinism–the implication of these two is enormous for the entire globe. Both, Marx and Stalin had the identical design of the future social model–abolition of private property globally… If Marx addressed only Europe, Stalin did the entire world including the Islamic East. I can’t repeat his bio, you can read it in the Part 3-4 of the series in this e-magazine and in any of my books. Yet, I have to repeat a very important fact in his life. Being an organizer of the Marxist groups in the Caucuses, he traveled abroad. A Muslim Azerbaijan was divided between Russia and Iran: the border was porous and speaking the same language helped Stalin to recruit people from Iran. The country of Iran became an ideological target for his entire life…

To grasp Stalinism and its foreign objectives, let’s start with Stalin’s vision of the world. Like Marx, Stalin followed the motto of “Proletariat of the World Unite,” recruiting the underclass. Yet the time had changed, the political development and the revolution of the 20th century required another language and Stalin introduced it: the word proletariat was substituted with the “working class or workers.” Though motivation of obtaining power stayed the same, as Stalin had the same transnational ambition, he changed the wording of the objectives–it became a creation of the One World Government under the Kremlin auspices. It was a typical Stalinist trick or double-game, as he officially talked about building Socialism in only one country. The Islamic double-game is the foundation of his asymmetrical war against Western civilization. I called it–WW III.

Studying Marxism-Leninism, I had to read Das Capital by Marx–a heavy book in dole and dry language, with unfamiliar to me terms that gave me the first vague impression of Capitalism. Only after coming to the U.S. I got the real knowledge of Capitalism by studying the legacy of our Founding Fathers. I was stunned by their intellect, logic, and the brilliant ideas in structuring our American system of checks and balances –they created an exceptional model of government unknown ever before. The American system is the complete opposite to the Stalinist Doctrine and his model of Socialism with its restrictive regulations by the authority, equal to slavery.

Those who think that in comparison with Lenin, Stalin was an uneducated evil-simpleton are very wrong. History had made Stalin–Stalin is the history of the 20th century. To solve the problems of the 21st century we must have a comprehensive knowledge of Stalinism  and his model of Socialism. Nobody identified Soviet Socialism yet; I will offer mine: Soviet Socialism is a war against the citizens of the country aimed at transforming its economic system and culture. I saw this war, waged by Stalin, a man with the DNA of Golden Horde, a Marxist, brought up by Muslim culture, mixed up on the imperial impulses of the Russian soil. The volcanic mixture has given birth to a new ideology– Soviet Fascism, the source and root cause of Modern Terrorism. To grasp it, watch the partnership Putin/Obama:they are adhered to the same ideology motivated “ to reduce American capacity…” Remember, it is Putin who is interested in Angela Merkel, not our Intelligence agencies… Got it?

From the very beginning of his reign, Stalin understood that the Russian economy cannot compete with the West, as a result, all his actions were aimed at undermining the Western economy. Russia had plenty of oil , Iran had too. The idea of oil conspiracy to suffocate the West came to Stalin and Iran became his target. The first Socialist Republic had been created abroad in Iran on the border with the Soviet Union. The Communist Party of Iran was established under the disguised name of the Tubeh Party. All consequent leaders of Russia continued the Stalinist foreign policy on Iran, just learn what happened in 1953 and 1979 in Iran. Please, read Chapter 9, The Evil Empire of Global Terrorism, What is Happening to America? Xlibris, 2012, pp. 161-181.

Watch the transformation of our country, promised by Obama and his policy of suppressing oil drilling in America. It is because Russia can’t sustain its economy with oil lower than $90… Watch also the Russian attempt to divert the world attention from the events in Ukraine. Stalinist oil conspiracy was only one front to weaken the Western economy, the mentioned above book is telling about other subversive activities as running a criminal network, sabotage, infiltration of the banks system and other strategic assets, controlling some media organs to propagandize ill-informed population, and so on… All of this constitutes an attempt to overstretch our military and overwhelm our economy.

Chapter 7: WW III: Recruitment and Drugs, Infiltration and Assassinations. The new front provoked by Russia is the war against the American currency. Watch it!

A new wonderful movie America by Dinesh D’Souza is answering many questions, but missing the most important one–Russia. That is the reason I am writing these series of articles. If you have any doubts about my fingering Stalin’s ideology of Soviet Fascism as the cause of World War III, go no further than the first person to confirm the identity of both–the Chairman of the KGB from 1967-1982, Yuri Andropov a devoted disciple of Stalin. No less an authority than Lt. General Ion Mihai Pacepa, the highest-ranking KGB officer ever to defect to the U.S, tells us of a meeting he had with Yuri Andropov:

“In 1972, the Kremlin decided to turn the whole Islamic world against Israel and the U.S. As KGB Chairman, Yuri Andropov told me that a billion adversaries could inflict far greater damage on America than could a few millions. We needed to instill a Nazi-style hatred for Jews throughout the Islamic world, and to turn this weapon of the inflamed emotions into a terrorist bloodbath against Israel and its main supporter, the United States. No one within the American/Zionist sphere of influence should any longer feel safe.  (“Russian Footprints,” by Ion Mihai Pacepa, National Review Online, August 24, 2008.)

General Pacepa wrote in the same article: “According to Andropov… the Muslims had a taste for nationalism, jingoism, and victimology. Their illiterate, oppressed mobs could be whipped up to a fever pitch. Terrorism and violence against Israel and her master, American Zionism, would flow naturally from the Muslims religious fervor, Andropov sermonized.” Vladimir Putin is a devoted disciple of Yuri Andropov. For the last decade Russian military grew by 79 per cent, and today the Soviet Mafia and Jihad are together defrauding the West on many fronts to TRANSFORM America and to destroy Western civilization… Nothing ever seems to change in Russia, does it?

Root Cause of the “Income Equality” Crisis — The Federal Reserve’s Monetary Policy

The latest political slogan is “income equality.” Various news outlets report that the rich are getting richer and poor getting poorer. Various politicians cry out for more government intervention, more government programs and expanded government funding to address this national crisis. Cries are heard daily from politicians to raise the minimum wage.

But who is really behind this growing income inequality crisis? According to one monetary policy expert it is the U.S. Federal Reserve.

James Rickards in his book “The Death of Money: The Coming Collapse of the International Monetary System” explains how this has happened in America and will happen again. Rickards writes, “Critics from Richard Cantillon in the early eighteenth century to V.I. Lenin and John Maynard Keynes in the twentieth have been unanimous in their view that inflation is the stealth destroyer of savings, capital, and economic growth.”

Rickards warns, “Inflation often begins imperceptibly and gains a foothold before it is recognized. This lag in comprehension, important to central banks, is called money illusion, a phrase that refers to a perception that real wealth is being created, so that Keynesian ‘animal spirits’ are aroused. Only later is it discovered that bankers and astute investors captured the wealth, and everyday citizens are left with devalued savings, pensions and life insurance.” [Emphasis mine]

Rickards finds that the 1960s and 1970s are “a good case study in money illusion.” “Two lessons from the 1960s and 1970s are highly pertinent today. The first is that inflation can gain substantial momentum before the general public notices it… Second, once inflation perceptions shift, they are extremely difficult to reset,” states Rickards.

Is the Federal Reserve contributing to a money illusion?

According to Rickards, “[S]ince 2008 the Federal Reserve has printed over $3 trillion of new money, but without stoking much inflation in the United States. Still, the Fed has set an inflation target of at least 2.5 percent, possibly higher, and will not relent in printing money until that target is achieved. The Fed sees inflation as a way to dilute the real value of U.S. debt and avoid the specter of deflation. There in lies a major risk.” [Emphasis mine]

Rickards notes history tells is, “[A] feedback loop will emerge in which higher inflation leads to higher inflation expectations, to even higher inflation, and so on. The Fed will not be able to arrest this feedback loop because its dynamic is a function not of monetary policy but of human behavior.”

Rickards predicts:

  1. Skyrocketing gold prices and a crashing dollar;
  2. Russian, China and the International Monetary Fund will stand ready with gold and SDRs, not dollars, to provide a new reserve asset; and
  3. When the dollar next falls from the high wire, there will be no safety net.

Richards in his book notes, “The coming collapse of the dollar and the international monetary system is entirely foreseeable… The international monetary system has collapsed three times in the past century – in 1914, 1939 and 1971. Each collapse was followed by a tumultuous period.”

Santelli-Rick-rant-chart-July-2014-300x157Rick Santelli explains what he believes is happening in the U.S. today. Brian Maloney from MediaEqualizer.com writes: “So what exactly are his [Santelli’s] points? It’s actually simple.” (see chart right):

  1. By keeping interest rates artificially low, the Janet Yellen led Federal Reserve has encouraged reckless government borrowing and spending while crushing savers, especially America’s retirees.
  2. The Fed has focused all its efforts on making the rich even richer through Quantitative Easing while working people suffer and are ignored by Washington’s elite.

Who wins and who loses when there is another financial crisis like the DOT.com bust in 2000 and the housing crisis of 2008? The winners are the bankers and savey investors (the 1%) and their political allies. The losers left holding the bag are citizens living on Main Street U.S.A.

The 2% Solution: How Homosexuals are Fundamentally Transforming America

Of the total U.S. population only 1.6% identify themselves as homosexual or lesbian according to the National Health Interview Survey, the U.S. government’s premier tool for annually assessing Americans’ health and behaviors. The study found that 0.7 percent of Americans consider themselves bisexual.

So, how are homosexuals fundamentally transforming America? They are “sloseting” the 98.4% who are straight. They also have helpers in very high places.

The Urban Dictionary defines sloset as “an exceedingly lost and/or stupified person. Also; a person lost in a closet, a state of utter lostness.” It was not enough for homosexuals to come out of the closet, homosexuals had to put those who are straight into a closet of utter lostness. Homosexuals are creating an ever growing number of “slosets.” If you speak out against homosexuality you are labeled, denigrated and in some cases fired from your job.

I call this the 2% solution: Keep attacking those who are revolted by homosexual behavior, thereby creating more stupified straights.

AFP reports:

HIV infections are rising among gay men in many parts of the world, the World Health Organization warned Friday, urging all men who have sex with men to take antiretroviral drugs to prevent infection.”

“We are seeing exploding epidemics,” warned Gottfried Hirnschall, who heads WHO’s HIV department.

Infection rates are rising again among men who have sex with men — the group at the epicentre of AIDS pandemic when it first emerged 33 years ago, he told reporters in Geneva.

While images of skeletal men dying of AIDS in the 1980s pushed the world to act, a younger generation that has grown up among new treatments that make it possible to live with HIV are less focused on the disease, he suggested.

Today, this group is 19 times more likely than the general population to be infected by HIV, Hirnschall said.

This is not a prophylactic problem. This HIV pandemic is a sexual behavior problem. The WHO has the wrong focus. The issue is not to provide antiretroviral drugs so that homosexuals can continue their deadly sexual behaviors. It is critical to change their behavior, by doing so you reduce the health threat globally.

Every society has a responsibility to stop homosexuality, it will help those who exhibit this bad behavior and those who homosexuals may come in contact with, particularly young boys. Homosexuals are a danger to themselves and those they have sex with, male and female alike. In Florida 70% of know HIV/AIDS cases are due to males having sex with males (MSM). The question is how many women have been infected by bisexual men?

Homosexuals have friends in very high places. The top three are: President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (Democrat candidate of president) and current Secretary of State John Kerry. Each is in his or her own way are promoting homosexual and lesbian friendly policies. Homosexuality has become not only a national domestic social policy, it is the major thrust of U.S. foreign policy.

According to the Gay & Lesbian Victory Institute, “To date, the Obama-Biden Administration has appointed more than 250 openly LGBT professionals to full-time and advisory positions in the executive branch; more than all known LGBT appointments of other presidential administrations combined.”

President Obama in a speech at the June 17th, 2014 Democrat National Committee LGBT gala noted, “Maybe no single issue divided our country more than same-sex marriage.  In fact, the Republican Party built their entire strategy for 2004 around this issue.  You remember?  They calculated that if they put constitutional amendments banning same-sex marriage on state ballots, they’d turn out more voters, they’d win.  And they, frankly, were right.  People flocked to the polls.  Those amendments were on the ballots in 11 states.  They passed in every single one.”

Now we have activist judges overturning the will of the people in those states, which via constitutional amendments, have defined marriage as between one man and one woman,  the most recent in Florida.

There is push back against the “slosetification” of America and the world. Take Singapore for example. The Associated Press reports, “A children’s book inspired by a real-life story of two male penguins raising a baby chick in New York’s zoo has been deemed inappropriate by state-run Singapore libraries, and the conservative city-state’s information minister said he supports the decision to destroy all copies alongside two other titles. The National Library Board, which runs 26 public libraries in Singapore, pulled from the shelves and said it would “pulp” the copies of three titles, citing complaints their content goes against Singapore’s family values.”

The three books are “And Tango Makes Three,” about a male-male penguin couple in the Central Park Zoo; “The White Swan Express: A Story About Adoption,” which involves a lesbian couple; and “Who’s In My Family: All About Our Families.” Parents are speaking out against these books being used in public schools across America.

It is important for homosexuals and lesbian to slosetfy our children. Homosexuals love little boys, it is called pederasty. All pederasts are homosexuals.

Have you been slosetfied? If so, then you need to come out of the closet and work against the less than 2% who are forcing their behavior upon you and your children.

Ambassador John Bolton’s Super PAC Announces First Independent Expenditure Critiquing Baffled NH Congresswoman Ann Kuster

WASHINGTON, July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Ambassador John Bolton’s Super PAC today released its first advertisement featuring troubling video of New Hampshire Representative Ann Kuster (NH-2) avoiding questions about the Benghazi tragedy and stating that Benghazi is not part of the Middle East.

The digital ad buy is for an initial $30,000 and will run for at least two weeks throughout New Hampshire. To date, the Super PAC has raised a record $3 million and has over $2.5 millioncash on hand.

The ad features Congresswoman Kuster at a town hall meeting in Manchester, New Hampshire, responding to a constituent’s question about House Resolution 36, which at the time would establish a select committee to investigate and report on the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi with, “I don’t have it … It’s a Senate … We’re certainly not here to talk about it. We’re here to talk about the Middle East.” House Resolution 36 was indeed in the House of Representatives, subsequently the House set up a Select Committee on Benghazi.

“That she unable to address her constituents’ questions about the Benghazi tragedy is shocking at best,” said Ambassador John Bolton. “Having a basic understanding of the Middle East and America’s security concerns in Benghazi should be a fundamental qualification to be in Congress and Ann Kuster should know better. New Hampshire deserves an informed representative who isn’t afraid to take a lead on both domestic and foreign affairs.”

The online ad is expected to be viewed by tens of thousands of New Hampshire residents and found across online news sources in NH including the Union Leader and WMUR websites. This is the first of what will be many independent expenditures by the John Bolton Super PAC to ensure that American security is a central factor in the 2014 midterm elections. The Ambassador has not yet endorsed a Republican candidate running in the primary election that is scheduled for September 9, 2014.

In addition to the John Bolton Super PAC, Ambassador Bolton’s PAC has already contributed to U.S. Senate candidates Tom Cotton (AR), Joni Ernst (IA), Terri Lynn Land (MI), and Mitch McConnell (KY), along with U.S. House of Representatives candidates Martha McSally (AZ-2), Barbara Comstock (VA-10), Adam Kinzinger (IL-16), Robert Dold (Il-10), and Mike Pompeo (KA-4). The combined money raised for the two PACs is $4 million to date with nearly $3 million cash on hand.

About John Bolton Super PAC: 

The John Bolton Super PAC will aim to make America’s defense and national security significant factors in federal elections through independent expenditures, campaigns, and issue-oriented education. The Super PAC will not make contributions to candidates, parties, or PACs.

Voter Advocate Challenges Media: Inform Voters of Gridlock Cures — Not Just Causes

OMAHA, Neb., July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — American voters are frustrated and they don’t know what to do about it. A recent Gallup survey pegged congressional disapproval at 80% for 2014.

Voters are fearful that the 2014 election will only lead to two more years of the same politics they’ve suffered for the last two years. This spirals downward to even more voter fatigue and apathy, and ever lower voter turnout.

Voter Advocate Larry Bradley

Larry R. Bradley

Voter Advocate and Author Larry R. Bradley offers Editors a new message for those frustrated voters.

“American voters need to recognize the true cause of their frustration. They have the behavior they have from elected officials because of the system being used to elect those officials,” says Bradley. “Voters will have the behavior and frustration so long as they continue to use the existing system. If voters want better behavior and results from elected officials, then the cure they need is to first change the electoral system.”

Bradley, who speaks to groups on this topic, has three specific commitments he says voters should be demanding of the current 2014 candidates in order to earn the voters’ support. They are:

  • Give voters more competitive choices and candidates with Ranked Choice Voting.
  • Neutralize Gerrymandering by instituting Proportional Representation.
  • Authorize true proportional allocation of Electors based solely on the statewide popular vote within each state without being tied to Congressional Districts.

Voter Advocate NLNCB CoverBradley notes that, “Einstein once said, ‘Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.’ Yet Americans fail to recognize their frustration with politics and government is due to using the same defective political system and not fixing its flaws. Even worse is that American media is failing to inform voters of the changes they could and should be demanding.”

“All of these changes,” continues Bradley, “are within the existing authority of state governments to approve. The approval of the changes will completely transform the productivity of our Federal Government for the better.”

Bradley is already scheduled for several appearances in conjunction with his DVD, Why the Two Party System Isn’t Working Anymore: And What to do About it, in the Fall of 2014.

Colorado Expert: Florida on the path to legalizing recreational pot

Marijuana policy expert joins the growing Don’t Let Florida Go to Pot coalition.

A Colorado expert who helped state officials there develop regulations after voters approved legalized marijuana is warning Floridians that they too could be on the path to legalizing recreational use of the drug if they support Amendment 2 in November, which would authorize marijuana under the guise of medicine.

Colorado made history in 2012 by becoming the first state to legalize recreational use of marijuana. But the story actually began 14 years earlier, when voters passed a constitutional amendment approving marijuana as a compassionate solution for desperately ill patients that led to massive fraud and abuse, said attorney Rachel O’Bryan, who was appointed to work on marijuana regulatory issues by Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper. O’Bryan now serves as spokesperson for Smart Colorado, a non-profit group, formed in 2013, dedicated to minimizing the negative consequences of legalizing pot in that state and especially its impact on youth.

After Colorado voters legalized marijuana as “medicine,” they saw how easy the drug was to obtain and how widely it was being used for recreational—rather than medicinal—purposes. So two years ago, they voted to totally legalize pot for anyone 21 or older as a way to bring back honesty to the state’s marijuana laws, O’Bryan said. She suggested that Floridians educate themselves on Colorado’s experience with legalizing marijuana, because the Sunshine State is on a very similar path.

“In November, Florida voters will be faced with a choice of legalizing marijuana for medical use. Voters should ask themselves now whether they want commercialized, recreational marijuana use legalized in Florida, because that is the direction Florida is headed with Amendment 2,” O’Bryan said.

O’Bryan spoke Wednesday during a news conference at the Florida Press Center in Tallahassee, where she was joined by Calvina Fay, executive director of the Drug Free America Foundation, Seminole County Sheriff Don Eslinger and representatives of the Don’t Let Florida Go to Pot coalition. O’Bryan announced that she is joining the growing coalition, which provides information to Floridians about the social, educational and health consequences of legalizing marijuana use.

“Rachel O’Bryan has witnessed firsthand what happened after Colorado voters legalized marijuana under the guise of medicine, and she has been in the trenches assisting her state in grappling with the many negative implications from that decision,” Sheriff Eslinger said. “The lessons she brings from Colorado are critical for Floridians to understand in order to make their own informed choices.”

O’Bryan pointed out that Florida’s Amendment 2 contains three “fatal flaws” that mimic problems with Colorado’s law that legalized marijuana under the guise of medicine—and that ultimately opened the door to legalizing recreational use of pot in that state.

First, Florida’s Amendment 2 allows for any medical condition to qualify for marijuana treatment by defining a “debilitating medical condition” as one that includes “other conditions for which a physician believes the medical use of marijuana would likely outweigh the potential health risks for a patient.” The likely result of this open-ended language is that individuals will use marijuana recreationally, despite the amendment’s stated intent not to allow this, O’Bryan said.

Colorado’s amendment legalizing marijuana as so-called medicine did the same thing by stating broadly that pot could be used to treat “severe pain.” As a result, Colorado’s patient registry statistics show that only one percent of patients use marijuana to treat HIV, AIDS, or glaucoma; only two percent list seizures; only three percent list cancer; while 94 percent list “severe pain,” a highly subjective, unverifiable condition.

Second, Florida’s Amendment 2 allows “medical” marijuana treatment centers to develop food products, even though most other types of medicines are not imbedded in food. These food products make it easier to discreetly consume marijuana, even on school property or at work. Colorado’s amendment legalizing marijuana as “medicine” also allowed food products. Today in Colorado, marijuana is infused in brownies, soda, breakfast cereals, cookies and snacks, cooking oil and salad dressings. Some “medical” marijuana companies are even buying children’s candies like Swedish Fish or Sour Patch Kids and spraying them with marijuana oil, O’Bryan said.

Third, Florida’s Amendment 2 places no age limits on “qualifying users” and also provides for user confidentiality. Coupled together, these two provisions open the door for Florida teenagers to be able to legally obtain marijuana without their parents being notified, O’Bryan said. This has significant social and educational implications for Florida’s youth, as long-term studies have shown that weekly marijuana use before age 18 is associated with a permanent decline in IQ.

Colorado’s amendment legalizing marijuana under the guise of medicine also placed no age limits on recipients, O’Bryan noted. As a result, the state has recently seen an explosion of “medical” marijuana users who are 18 to 20 years old. The number of people in this age range has increased by more than 46 percent since the end of 2012, while the state’s total “medical” marijuana patient registry only increased to two percent. Meanwhile, the latest Healthy Kids Colorado Survey found that 52 percent of high school seniors said it is “very easy” to get marijuana; 51 percent know someone with a medical marijuana card; and more than 11 percent said they had gotten marijuana within the previous 30 days from someone with a medical marijuana card.

O’Bryan noted the ballot summaries for proposed constitutional amendments in Florida are limited to just 75 words, which is typically all that voters read. Based on her expert interpretation of Florida’s Amendment 2, she said the ballot summary could read this way:

Allows for the use of marijuana for ANY medical condition. Allows teenagers to obtain marijuana without parental notification. Allows for the development of marijuana-infused foods, including candy and snacks that appeal to children. Does not recognize private property rights of landlords or condominium associations to prohibit the use of marijuana in multi-unit dwellings. Waives a patient’s right to medical malpractice claims against their physician related to their treatment with marijuana. 

“Would Florida voters still support this amendment if they had a full and accurate summary of what the amendment does?” O’Bryan asked.

Legalizing marijuana as a so-called “medicine” has literally changed the landscape in Colorado, especially Denver. Today, there are 493 pot shops in Colorado and 195 alone in Denver, where so-called medical marijuana shops now outnumber pharmacies, liquor stores, McDonald’s and Starbucks.

“Marijuana is smelled on the street and smoked in front yards,” O’Bryan said, adding this warning: “Florida voters, you may think you won’t go as far as Colorado and Washington, but you will be one step closer.”

Obamacare Must Be Repealed

While the issue of immigration is uppermost in people’s minds right now, it is likely at this point halfway through his second term that President Obama will be identified by historians most closely with his signature, namesake legislation, the Affordable Patient Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare.

They will do so for two reasons; that he lied to everyone about it and it has been a failure in countless ways from the moment its website was introduced.

Obamacare_Paying_For_It_Poster (1)

For a larger view click on the image. Graphic courtesy of The Peoples Cube.

In April PolitiFact, a project of the Tampa Bay Times, announced the “most significant falsehood of the year” and it came as no surprise it was “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.” An April Fox News poll revealed that 61% of respondents said the Obama lies at least some of the time on important issues. Only 15% thought he was completely truthful.

By July 2 a Quinnipiac University poll announced that its survey had determined that 33% of the respondents believed Obama was the “Worst President Since WWII.” The poll also revealed that between 54% and 44% believed the Obama administration was not competent to run the government.

If you want proof of that, you need only follow the horror story of Obamacare.

In September 2013, prior to Obamacare’s implementation the following month, Daniel Henninger, a Wall Street Journal columnist, wisely noted that “Obamacare is the biggest bet that American liberalism has made in 80 years on its fundamental beliefs. This thing called ‘Obamacare’ carries on its back all the justifications, hopes and dreams of the entitlement state.”

“If Obamacare fails, or seriously falters, the entitlement state will suffer a historic loss of credibility with the American people” adding that “only the American people can kill Obamacare.”

The great Prohibition experiment was killed by the American people and it took a Constitutional amendment to do it. It was a monumental failure.

I would be remiss if I did not point out that no Republican voted for Obamacare. It was entirely a Democratic Party creation, one it has wanted going back to the creation of Medicare and Medicaid.

What Americans have learned in the short time since Obamacare has been implemented is that virtually everything they were told about it was and is a lie.

People who were insured lost their health plan—six million had been cancelled by May, nor could they keep their doctor because many health care plans sold on federal and state exchanges have a limited number of in-network physicians from whom to choose. The costs of Obamacare plans costs are frequently in excess of those from the previous free market and include elements that do not fit the age or sex of those who sign up, such as maternity coverage for women beyond childbearing age.

Obamacare exists because the Supreme Court deemed it to be a “tax”, but it is demonstrably unconstitutional insofar as it represents the mandate of the federal government that everyone buy something that they may not want and, more importantly, cannot afford. When the government can tell you what you must buy, you are no longer living in a free society.

Sharyl Attkisson, writing in Heritage Foundation’s Daily Signal, reported one source as saying, “In general healthy people are paying more and unhealthy people are paying less.” There isn’t even a “smidgen” of fairness in this.

At no point before or since its inception has the Obama administration told the truth about any aspect of Obamacare, particularly how many legitimate enrollments there have been thus far. In April the number cited was eight million. Attkisson reported that observers immediately pointed out that “the figure is overstated because it counted people who weren’t actually covered because they hadn’t paid their premiums. That actual enrollment was likely closer to between 6.4 and 6.8 million, both below the eight million figure and the stated target of seven million.”

Arnold Ahlert, writing for CanadaFreePress.com, noted in early July that “A pair of reports released by the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General reveal ‘internal’ controls for evaluating healthcare applications are ineffective, and 85% of 2.9 million data ‘inconsistencies’ on Obamacare applications cannot be resolved, even after nine months of attempting to do so.” Not only did many of the 39 state exchanges fail to work, but the enrollments are plagued with evidence of both data errors and fraud.

Obamacare - Lipstick on a PigObamacare is so flawed that the President has had to unilaterally and unconstitutionally step in to alter the terms of the law thus far. That is an impeachable offense.

Obamacare is a massive travesty and, hidden below the headlines is the fact that the failures inherent in its implementation are causing some to die because of bureaucratic delays encountered while waiting to receive the care their plans are supposed to provide, if they were even able to secure a plan.

The election in November of enough Republicans to control the Senate and an increase in the House would permit them to act upon the numerous bills the House has passed to end Obamacare and which are blocked in the Senate by Harry Reid, its Majority Leader. Ending Obamacare would truly be a blessing for all Americans.

America’s poly-drug drift to “The world’s only fully industrialized Third World Nation”

Assassin: Word History Date of Origin 17th century:

Etymologically, an assassin is an ‘eater or smoker of hashish’, the drug cannabis. Arabic for ‘hashish-eater’ .One who kills for political or religious rather than personal motives.

In 1989 Secretary of Education Lauro Cavazos said, “We are in danger of becoming the world’s only fully industrialized Third World nation.” What does the ancient “assassin” etymology mean for today’s “medical marijuana” experiment, legal in fifteen states, Washington DC., and counting. I will here, patient reader, briefly tease out marijuana, pornography and sex trafficking as the industrialization of Third World religiosity.

My pot interest began in 1978, reading “Qat’s Cradle,” in Human Behavior. The U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare paid two jolly UCLA researchers to live two years in the Yemen Arab Republic studying, “What would life be like in a total drug culture?” The two reported a lethargic nation that grew a single crop–marijuana/qat—and that experienced widespread malnourishment, impoverishment and infant mortality. Everyone used.

Students chew liberally …. Children chew qat starting at seven or eight years of age … women …. have their own qat parties …. taxi drivers chew ..Politicians chew with politicians; religious leaders and scholars chew with their groups. Qat chewing even plays a role in the highest government circles.

From their two year long sojourn, our happy grantees concluded Americans should emulate this drug culture for Yemenites, they said, remain part of the “world economy.” The authors note Yemenite qat chewing as 400 years old. In the 19th century a traveler tried it and wrote:

The Yamini [sic] can go or several days without food, but not a single day without qat. Men and women and children, they all use it.

So, as conservative lawyers and ministers currently argue for pot legality, kindly stay with me on this. Drug apostles, “philanthropic” millionaires like Hugh Hefner, and billionaires like Peter Lewis, George Soros and similar venture capitalists financed marijuana legalization. Remember, before victims legally exposed big tobacco’s death rates and alcohol’s drunk-driving record, both industries controlled all mainline media. These “harms” emerged only after juries awarded millions to industry/advertising victims. Anticipate similar media censorship of pot harms.

Instead of the tragic Third World history of pot, we get pricey advertorials like the feature film, “It’s Complicated” where one film critic gushed, “director Nancy Meyers, and actors Meryl Streep, Steve Martin” and Alec Baldwin deserve awards for making marijuana “acceptable” in pop culture.

Sorry. When a hot new product gets “used” in a film, that is called an “advertorial” and it used to be illegitimate. The “using” star, director, writer, etc, commonly receives mucho gold to hawk the item—especially when it is supported by billions. GQ says:

I guess it began the moment medical-marijuana advocates began equating pot with something healthful and people started actually believing them….to treat nausea and headaches….

The GQ author says making it “healthy” sold pot, since folks think it’s no “more dangerous, than a bottle of spirulina…” Huffington Press’s Jason Silva says the “It’s Complicated” showed “successful, cosmopolitan adults enjoying a marijuana joint with no consequences.”

Well, if Streep, Martin and Baldwin’s pot acting promo didn’t pay more than their film salary their agents should be replaced forth with. Writing as though he is stoned, Silva adds, “Our 10,000 year relationship with cannabis can now exist without shame or rebellion. There are now more marijuana dispensaries in L.A. than there are Starbucks.”

Our” 10,000 year relationship with hashish? Americans? Silva shouldn’t smoke.

Our” cannabis “relationship,” roughly 50 years, was largely among criminals and then young, “educated” spoiled sex and drug rebels (see Woodstock’s shagged out chaos).

With U.S. marijuana use declining consistently “since the mid-1990s,” pot investors needed to lunch a media weed blitzkrieg with pricey celebrities snorting, (oops toking) in feature films like, “It’s Complicated,” “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.” “[C]inema’s stoned age. Films featuring characters using marijuana have mushroomed.” says The Christian Science Monitor.

Silva reports, moms are “lighting up joints in Bryn Mawr and Squirrel Hill….Just ask Lisa….who works for a financial institution.” (She handles my money?) Lisa relaxes “with a joint” at night while the kiddos sleep.

Isn’t that inspiring? However, the Judeo-Christian religious proscriptions against mind altering drugs would have allowed “Lisa” and the Bryn Mar moms those leisurely swims in their back yard pools while their Third World sisters must still haul water from the well.

Remember, generations of Third World cultures relaxed “with a joint.” Arguably these “joints,” supported by religious worldviews, have kept its people impoverished.

Until recently, alcohol, relatively costly, morally proscribed (remember prohibition?) and water-soluble was the only intoxicant readily available to the Western masses.

Odysseus reported in The Odyssey, that the land of the “Lotus Eaters” induced a timeless drugged stupor. In The War on Drugs, researcher James Inciardi writes:

[R]eferences to marijuana appear in early Persian, Hindu, Greek, Arab and Chinese writings [and] chewing of coca had already been in Inca mythology for centuries.5

Despite rich national resources, indigenous peoples; Central Mexico, Costa Rica, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Morocco, Egypt, Yemen, Jamaica, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Fiji, etc, generally live in dire poverty with cultural acceptance of drugs always filtering down to children.

Marijuana and betel nut are common in most of Egypt and Asia. The Cree Indians tolerate harsh labor by chewing and brewing calamus or “rat root, 6 while Central Mexico to Costa Rica, hashish and thle-pela-kano (“Leaf of God”) keep the natives in bondage. Opium, heroin, hash oil and hashish are indigenously Asian. 10 Hashish controls people in North Africa, Pakistan to Afghanistan, Lebanon, and Nepal.

Nepal’s life expectancy, like other Third World countries, teeters at about 50 years of age along with its annual per capita income in 2010 of $1,250.[11]

Indigenous drugs produce poverty, early mortality and illiteracy, and largely explain what the west calls amotivational syndrome. All adult use always leaves children vulnerable to vile abuse, from entrapment into prostitution to parental sale of their children.

Globally, men increasingly promote drug use by spouse and consort to get more dangerous sex acts and to recruit and control prostitutes and now, to create pornography. Drug use is directly associated with increased rates of myriad venereal diseases including AIDS (due to promiscuity, vaginal, oral and anal sex, rape, etc), unmarried births, infanticide and abortion.

Returning to the definition of “Assassin,” survivors speaking at the Liberty University Law School symposium on Genocide and the Holocaust (February 14, 2011) described the blood curdling public massacres in Rwanda. It turns out that marijuana played a role in that wholesale slaughter. Perhaps the effects of grass, or poly drug use, is not always as “laid back” as affluent Merel Streep’s acting demonstrated.

An official report on “Six rapid assessments of alcohol and other substance use in populations displaced by conflict” identifies “alcohol, khat, benzodiazepine, opiate, and other substance use” as part of heinous massacres and “gender-based violence” in Rwanda and other warring nations:

“People who take drugs get reckless…. Alcohol and cannabis were….widely consumed by men and women of all ages…Cannabis was typically smoked….Ex-combatants and their friends are typically perceived as the main sellers and users of cannabis….to be brave and strong to fight or just to meet their everyday difficulties…to stop the bad dreams.”

Substance use….[caused] violence, particularly gender-based violence….fear of substances and crime – associated with ex-combatants – pervaded Monrovia.

In addition, combat….may promote use “to dull their fears and anxieties and to commit heinous atrocities”….[They used] opiates (mainly opium), cannabis (hashish) and tranquilisers….[Men used] hashish….tranquilisers were used by women….. one third of the women interviewed said that they knew someone who had a serious problem with hashish and gave accounts of domestic violence associated with its use.…Women….[gave] opium to children to keep them quiet….traditional and widespread.

The “Assassin” definition indicts “medical” or recreational marijuana.  Whatever, impairs the brain’s frontal “braking thermostat,” (described by neurologist Don Hilton as common to pornography users) impairs conscience and escalates abuse and gender based violence.

Still working within the “medical marijuana” paradigm, do consider the role of pornography and impotence as an unending pot gold mine. Police commonly find drugs, prostitution, and pornography together in raids. Indeed, the industrialization of Third World drugs raises the real issue of criminality associated with pornography induced impotence, child pornography and sex trafficking.

Cavazos intuited we were becoming a poly-drug nation, mixing alcohol, marijuana (exogenous drugs) and pornography (an endogenous drug). Based on the porn-drug nexus, with roughly 5,200 apparently protected Pentagon child pornography users, legal marijuana will further weaken our economy, governance and security, as officials increasingly succumb to blackmail, bribery, or even assassins, high on the thrill of killing for “political or religious” reasons.

For the nasty subtext in roughly 2 million web hits for “porn addict recovery,” is pornography’s erototoxic castration fallout. Fox news peeps at the coming issues; “Italian scientists have identified [impotence] as a worrying side-effect of watching too much pornography.”Gosh, auto-eroticism to “pictures” can deflate the male — libido? Shock! Surprise! Stunner!

Indeed, the Italian researchers say porn “can lead to a loss of libido, impotence and a notion of sex that is totally divorced from real-life relations.” (Shock again.) Their study of 28,000 Italian hunks opined porn use led to “sexual anorexia,” even by the “mid-twenties.” This suggests whatever “aids” the estimated 40% to 70% of American male porn sufferers is into castration gold—this is a failure that keeps on paying.

The takeaway here is that as Viagra’s defects emerged (headaches, heart attacks, sexual failure without the drug, etc) legal pot is moving to center stage, teasing out the marijuana-porn mix as nirvana–a smoking eros! Sample Psychology Today readers celebrating marijuana’s libido lifts as erotic gold.

“[T]he most intense sexual experiences I’ve ever had was [sic] fueled by weed, tequila and cocaine.”

“I try and get high with every girl that I’m going to have sex with.”

Once the word gets out….the conservative right will jump on the weed bandwagon and forget about Viagra….the tables are turning to grow for a profit, instead of prohibit for a profit.”

Former drug advocate, Andrew Weil, M.D. observed that “18 million American men” suffer from impotence. Well, since pornography sets millions up only to let them down, “medical” marijuana seems like the smoke whose time has come.

All things being equal, pornography stimulated impotence is the siren call to marijuana as yet another prison for eroding conscience, thus the loss of masculine agency.

Thank you for your Service — You’re Fired

I often hear on my radio commercials featuring Michele Obama and Dr. Jill Biden asking those listening to hire a veteran. It is part of the Show Your Stripes series in partnership with iHeart Radio stations across the United States. The White House website has an entire section titled “Joining Forces“. In bold letters is this 2011 statement with accompanying graphic: “President Obama believes that no veteran should have to fight for a job at home after they fight for our nation overseas.”

These programs are all needed because President Obama is firing our military by the tens of thousands. He has created this crisis that now threatens our very national security.

Richard Thompson, President of the Thomas More Law Center, in a column titled “Thank you for your Service — You’re Fired: Pink Slipping our Army Captains a Threat to National Security” writes:

While we watched the commander-in-chief drinking beer and playing pool last week, we learned that 1,100 Army captains — some in harm’s way on the front lines in Afghanistan—were receiving pink slips notifying them they were fired. How demoralizing, heartless, and stupid.

These captains now must lead and care for the Soldiers entrusted to them in combat, dodge the bullets and IEDs, and at the same time worry about finding a job when they get back home, that is, if they ever do. As one Army wife posted on MilitaryFamily.org, “On some level I knew the draw downs were inevitable, but I guess I never expected to be simultaneously worried about a deployment to Afghanistan and a pink slip because my husband’s service is no longer needed.”

This is another stark example of domestic politics trumping our national security interest.

The experience and knowledge about the enemy and counter insurgency these officers have gained is irreplaceable.

The very Army leadership we are eliminating are the leaders we most desperately need to retain. Why? Because they represent three critical talent streams that will be essential in our next war (and there WILL be a next war, and it will likely be sooner than anyone wants):

  • Courage – They are among the bravest volunteers. Any captain or major currently with 6 to 10 years in service would have had to have raised his/her hand around 2004-2008, when the current war was at its worst. Iraq was in sectarian flames, and a resurgent Taliban was attempting to retake Afghanistan. This was followed by the surge to fix Iraq and Operation Medusa in Afghanistan to save Kandahar from the Taliban. All of this and these young Soldiers still said, “I’ll go. Send me.”
  • Experience – This war has been largely a platoon leader and company commander’s fight. These Soldiers have been the point of the spear for years and are at the pinnacle of their professional relevance in our ongoing global war against Al-Qaeda. We are now going to dump a major chunk of irreplaceable talent out on the streets.
  • Talent – These are now some of our most agile and adaptive leaders. These young leaders have mastered the art of coordinating nearly all elements of national power to achieve our nation’s global aims – not just military force, but diplomacy, economic resources, education, and information in an effort to defeat an intractable enemy and provide space for innocent civilians to carve out a new country.

Given the recent events of China threatening its Pacific neighbors, an emboldened and bellicose Russia threatening Ukraine and inserting itself in Latin America, Iran ever closer to nuclear weaponry and a Middle East now descending into a virtual free-fall of Islamist inspired chaos why would anyone inside the White House be stupid enough to press ahead with these drastic levels of military cuts? It is tantamount to willful negligence on the part of our nation’s political leadership.

The U.S. Army is currently at 510,000, well below the Clinton Era Army. The current cuts are aimed at reducing it to 490,000. And the most recent defense budget proposal from the Pentagon, now working its way through Congress, calls for an Army of 450,000 soldiers.

Yet at the same time the Department of Defense is seeking to recruit transsexuals. Note this poster in the Officer’s Club at Vandenberg AFB, California (right). Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel:

United States Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel told ABC News he believes the policy prohibiting transgender people from serving in the military should be reviewed.

“I do think it continually should be reviewed,” Hagel said in an interview with ABC News reporter Martha Raddatz that aired on This Week with George Stephanopoulos. “I’m open to that, by the way. I’m open to those assessments.” Hagel didn’t say, though, if he thinks the policy should be overturned, according to the ABC News report.

Additionally, Hagel said transgender people serving in the military is “an area that we’ve not defined enough.” The military’s policy banning out gay and lesbian service members, “don’t ask, don’t tell,” was repealed by Congress in 2010 and ended Sept. 20, 2011. As for transgender service members, the issue “is a bit more complicated,” Hagel said.

“Again, I go back to the bottom line — every qualified American who wants to serve our country should have an opportunity if they fit the qualifications and can do it,” he said. The defense secretary said he is most concerned about providing transgender service members with the proper medical care when they are sent to “austere locations.”

As the world becomes more and more dangerous, the United States is unilaterally disarms itself. Americans and U.S. facilities and companies, at home and abroad, become increasing more vulnerable to attack. A dangerous cock-tale for those who would do us harm.

Florida Sheriff would refuse any request from Dept. of Homeland Security to house illegals in his jail

Sherry Smart, a resident of Sarasota County, FL, sent an email to all of her County Commissioners. Smart wrote, “As all of you are aware we have a crisis at our borders and now it is spreading it’s tentacles across the US. Murietta, California learned about their invasion at the last moment with the assistance of their Mayor who was outraged with this Federal overreach. Next came the people of Virginia who learned about the Fed’s plan for an abandoned building and those people prevailed.  Today I read an article where Pasco County is taking in illegals and requesting more beds. I’d like to know if there are any plans in place for North Port and Sarasota County.” See the map below on the three know relocation areas for illegals in Florida.

Christine Robinson, Sarasota County Commissioner responded stating, “Excuse me for the delay in my response, I was traveling this weekend.  Thank you for writing. I am copying our Sheriff who is a separately elected constitutional officer who is solely in charge of law enforcement responsibilities with your concern.” Robinson did not say if the County would agree to house illegals.

However, Sarasota County Sheriff Thomas M. Knight (pictured above) did respond to Smart stating, “My office has a working relationship with the Department of Homeland Security/Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  I have not received any information from that group of intentions to request assistance from the Sheriff’s Office to house illegals in the Sarasota County Jail.  In fact, I would refuse the request if that should come.  I think it would be also important for you to know that since I took office in 2009, the Sheriff’s Office has recognized over 435 criminal illegal aliens who have been booked at the Sarasota County Jail – having them removed and sent to Miami – Dade County for deportation proceedings. Thank you for staying engaged.” [Emphasis mine]

Congressman Steve Southerland, II, FL District 2.

Voicing similar concerns, Neil Rice from Perry, Florida sent an email to Congressman Steve Southerland, II, FL District 2. Rice stated, “House republicans stand your ground or lose your seat. No money for illegal immigrants, with out money they can not stay. Close the borders first and completely. Send back All the illegals. DHS IS A UNCONSTITUTIONAL AGENCY AND NEEDS TO BE ABOLISHED. They are corrupt beyond words, doing what ever they wish. and committing EXTORTION against the American taxpayer.”

“This is an election year, and we are forming groups to campaign against any representative that does not abide by the U.S. Constitution, protects our country and it’s people, (no matter who gets it). We have nothing to lose anymore,” notes Rice.

Melissa Thompson, Deputy District Director for Rep. Steve Southerland, II replied, “Steve and the Republican Conference have no plans to give the President more money for the illegals.”

According to Numbers USA Florida has been targeted by the federal government to take illegals. George Fuller, from Sarasota notes, “Kansas Southern owns subsidiary FERROSUR which has two trains that leave southern Mexico every 8 to 10 days headed for the U.S. Border. This has been the most used form of transportation by illegal aliens to get through Mexico. The trains are known as La Beastia.”

There is a growing backlash across Florida and the United States against this illegal alien invasion. Many argue that America’s sovereignty is being violated as well as standing laws ignored. Is lawlessness coming to Florida?

Anti-Israel Protesters Attack Paris Synagogues: Congregants trapped in building as Bastille Day demonstration turns violent

Traditionally French people dance in the streets and fire stations on the eve of the Quatorze Juillet, known in English as Bastille Day. This year, however, anti-Israel demonstrators took control of the monument in the center of the Bastille circle Sunday, brandishing Palestinian flags and cardboard replicas of scimitars and Kassam rockets. Described in AFP releases as a well-mannered demonstration except for a few incidents, it was in fact a hate-fest against Israel and the Jews. “Death to the Jews,” “Murderous Israel,” “One Jew Some Jews All Jews are Terrorists” figured loudly among the slogans hurled by kefiyyeh-clad marchers.

According to the police, the 7,000 demonstrators (organizers claimed 30,000) began in the northern quartier of Barbès, which has a large African and Maghrebi population, and marched to the Bastille, where they remained for several hours. A small contingent started to attack the police, and was quickly brought under control. At the same time, hundreds of protesters raced up rue de la Roquette—street of the rocket—and surrounded the Don Isaac Abravanel synagogue, which is protected by a tall metal gate. Security guards from the SPCJ (Service de Protection de la Communauté Juive), Beitar, and the Jewish Defense League faced assailants reportedly armed with knives, axes, and iron bars.

Five riot policemen stationed in front of the synagogue, where some 200 congregants happened to be attending a prayer service for Israel’s safety, were unable to handle the crowd. It took a half hour for reinforcements to arrive, and another two hours during which law enforcement combed the surrounding streets before members of the congregation were told it was safe to leave. The chief rabbi of Paris, Michel Guggenheim, was at the synagogue during the incident.

Another synagogue, on the rue des Tournelles near the Place des Vosges, was also targeted, though details of that incident have not yet emerged. Two weeks ago I attended a joyful ceremony there for the more than 1,500 French Jews making aliyah this summer, in the presence of Natan and Avital Sharansky, as well as the Israeli ambassador to France andnewly elected chief rabbi of France Haim Korsia.

Jewish radio stations were abuzz Sunday evening and Monday with testimony from people who had been inside the synagogue and statements from Jewish community leaders. Mainstream media coverage, however, focused largely on the 14 Juillet military parade, with the day’s “death to the Jews” chants neatly overlooked.

Roger Cukierman, the president of CRIF, the umbrella organization of French Jews, and Joël Mergui, president of the Consistoire, met with Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve yesterday, and asked for an outright ban on anti-Israel demonstrations due to their blatant disregard for law and order.

Local Jewish community leaders have excellent relations with President Francois Hollande’s government, as they did with the previous Sarkozy administration. During the incident at the Don Isaac Abravanel synagogue, Jewish leaders were in contact with the Interior Minister, Prime Minister Manuel Valls, and the chief of police. No one questions the government’s sincere sympathy for the Jewish community, or its fervent wish to bring a halt to the incidents, which are alienating French Jews and giving France a bad reputation internationally. The problem is that French authorities are overwhelmed, outrun, cornered, and caught in their own contradictions.

Violent demonstrations under various pretexts have taken place in France since the early 2000s. In 2003, participants in a peace march beat up two young men from Hashomer Hatzair, then tried to break into a building in the Marais where more than 100 young Jews were gathered. There were massive, violent anti-Israel rallies during the 2009 conflict between Israel and Hamas. Sunday’s incident, however, signifies a heightened threat against French Jews. Anti-Israel protestors are more heavily armed and more defiant than before.

French Jews, however, are not cringing. They are standing firm and demanding appropriate government measures. Still, there is a sinking feeling that one day soon the doors will not resist, the mob will enter, the intolerable will occur.
