Political correctness has run amok. Newspeak and double talk are rampant in political discourse and modern media. If you don’t agree that the US should let anyone who wishes to come to our country do so at will (“are Americans afraid of widows and orphans?” when at least 80% of middle east “refugees” are military aged males) they immediately label you a hateful, racist, bigot no different than a KKK lynch mob participant. If you don’t agree that a Catholic Priest should have to marry a same sex couple at their request, or a little old lady at a bakery should have to make them a cake against her will, you are a homophobic, neanderthal, hate machine. And any “politically incorrect” speech, (which of course is defined by the most left wing, anti-American communists among us) is not tolerated at any level. How much farther from here until we get to our own Red Terror?
Below is a quote from the wiki article on the “Red Terror” (whole article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Terror )The hate modern leftists hurl against society at large is just under this level. Think about it. The communists we have living in our country now are not that much different. The hate they feel for anyone who has more than them is much the same. And the desire to “do whatever it takes” to take what they want from those who don’t “deserve it” is the same. Keep this in mind. This is not a report on what people did in the dark ages to unbelievers or witches in the 1600s or some far flung ancient past. This is what happened in a relatively civilized modern country in the early 1900’s:
“At these times, there were numerous reports that Cheka interrogators utilized torture methods which were, according to Orlando Figes, “matched only by the Spanish Inquisition.” AtOdessa the Cheka tied White officers to planks and slowly fed them into furnaces or tanks of boiling water; in Kharkiv, scalpings and hand-flayings were commonplace: the skin was peeled off victims’ hands to produce “gloves”; the Voronezh Cheka rolled naked people around in barrels studded internally with nails; victims were crucified or stoned to death atDnipropetrovsk; the Cheka at Kremenchuk impaled members of the clergy and buried alive rebelling peasants; in Orel, water was poured on naked prisoners bound in the winter streets until they became living ice statues; in Kiev, Chinese Cheka detachments placed rats in iron tubes sealed at one end with wire netting and the other placed against the body of a prisoner, with the tubes being heated until the rats gnawed through the victim’s body in an effort to escape.
Executions took place in prison cellars or courtyards, or occasionally on the outskirts of town, during the Red Terror and Russian civil war. After the condemned were stripped of their clothing and other belongings, which were shared among the Cheka executioners, they were either machine-gunned in batches or dispatched individually with a revolver. Those killed in prison were usually shot in the back of the neck as they entered the execution cellar, which became littered with corpses and soaked with blood. Victims killed outside the town were moved by truck, bound and gagged, to their place of execution, where they sometimes were made to dig their own graves.
According to Edvard Radzinsky, “it became a common practice to take a husband hostage and wait for his wife to come and purchase his life with her body”.During Decossackization, there were massacres, according to historian Robert Gellately, “on an unheard of scale.” The Pyatigorsk Cheka organized a “day of Red Terror” to execute 300 people in one day, and took quotas from each part of town. According to the Chekist Karl Lander, the Cheka in Kislovodsk, “for lack of a better idea,” killed all the patients in the hospital. In October 1920 alone more than 6,000 people were executed. Gellately adds that Communist leaders “sought to justify their ethnic-based massacres by incorporating them into the rubric of the ‘class struggle'”.
Members of the clergy were subjected to particularly brutal abuse. According to documents cited by the late Alexander Yakovlev, then head of the Presidential Committee for the Rehabilitation of Victims of Political Repression, priests, monks and nuns were crucified, thrown into cauldrons of boiling tar, scalped, strangled, given Communion with melted lead and drowned in holes in the ice. An estimated 3,000 were put to death in 1918 alone.“
“In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill. In their totality and their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which must be confronted by everyone together. But in designating these dangers as the enemy, we fall into the trap, which we have already warned readers about, namely mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention in natural processes, and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy then is humanity itself.”
The First Global Revolution, A Report by the Council of the Club of Rome. (1991) Page 75. Global Revolution
One member of the Club of Rome was Professor Stephen Schneider. One of the most influential figures of the early push for the man-made global warming theory. Just a little on the esteemed professor:
“The founder and editor of the magazine Climatic Change, Dr. Schneider was part of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with former vice president Al Gore for international research on global warming. He advised every president from Nixon to Obama.”
“No one, and I mean no one, had a broader and deeper understanding of the climate issue than Stephen,” said Michael Oppenheimer, a professor of geosciences and international affairs at Princeton University. “More than anyone else, he helped shape the way the public and experts thought about this problem — from the basic physics of the problem, to the impact of human beings on nature’s ecosystems, to developing policy.”
The Washington Post 2010
But the great professor’s ethics might have been slightly questionable, given the quote here:
“On the one hand, as scientists we are ethically bound to the scientific method, in effect promising to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but — which means that we must include all the doubts, the caveats, the ifs, ands, and buts. On the other hand, we are not just scientists but human beings as well. And like most people we’d like to see the world a better place, which in this context translates into our working to reduce the risk of potentially disastrous climatic change. To do that we need to get some broadbased support, to capture the public’s imagination. That, of course, entails getting loads of media coverage. So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have. This ‘double ethical bind’ we frequently find ourselves in cannot be solved by any formula. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest. I hope that means being both.” (Quoted in Discover, pp. 45–48, October 1989.)
Nice to know his views on honesty vs effectiveness, given he was such an influence on the politics of climate change, isn’t it?
But it can’t be a conspiracy! Can it? All those stories about cherry picking data are just wacko conspiracy theories, right? It’s like I said about Socialism. It’s more of a cult than science. A scientific theory makes testable predictions. Nearly ALL of their predictions that should have come to pass were wrong. Yet the believers continue to believe. How is this different than a group that follows a prophet who names a date for doomsday, that comes and passes. The prophet names a later date for judgement, that comes and passes. But the believers still believe, that’s what believers do.
“Climate alarm belongs to a class of issues characterized by a claim for which there is no evidence, that nonetheless appeals strongly to one or more interests or prejudices. Once the issue is adopted, evidence becomes irrelevant. Instead, the believer sees what he believes.” Richard Lindzen, distinguished senior fellow in the Center for the Study of Science, professor of meteorology at MIT, where he was the Alfred P. Sloan Professor, beginning in 1983. Prior to that he was the Robert P. Burden Professor of Dynamic Meteorology at Harvard University.
A tiny list of the doomsayers’ predictions:
Michael Oppenheimer, 1990, The Environmental Defense Fund: “By 1995, the greenhouse effect would be desolating the heartlands of North America and Eurasia with horrific drought, causing crop failures and food riots…”
Edward Goldsmith, 1991, (5000 Days to Save the Planet): “By 2000, British and American oil will have diminished to a trickle….Ozone depletion and global warming threaten food shortages”
1970 Kenneth Watt, ecologist: “The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.”
Sept 19, 1989, St. Louis Post-Dispatch: “New York will probably be like Florida 15 years from now.”
October 15, 1990 Carl Sagan: “The planet could face an ‘ecological and agricultural catastrophe’ by the next decade if global warming trends continue.”
2005, Andrew Simms, policy director of the New Economics Foundation: “Scholars are predicting that 50 million people worldwide will be displaced by 2010 because of rising sea levels, desertification, dried up aquifers, weather-induced flooding and other serious environmental changes.”
“It could even be this year or next year but not later than 2015 there won’t be any ice in the Arctic in the summer,” he said, pulling out a battered laptop to show a diagram explaining his calculations, which he calls “the Arctic death spiral”. – Peter Wadham, professor of Ocean Physics, and Head of the Polar Ocean Physics Group in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge. Financial Times Magazine Aug 8, 2012
NASA climate scientist Jay Zwally said: “At this rate, the Arctic Ocean could be nearly ice-free at the end of summer by 2012, much faster than previous predictions.”
“According to these models, there will be no sea ice left in the summer in the Arctic Ocean somewhere between 2010 and 2015“. “And it’s probably going to happen even faster than that,” Professor Louis Fortier – Université Laval, Director ArcticNet – November 16, 2007

Officials with the Panama Canal Authority, managers of the locks and reservoirs since the United States relinquished control of the canal in 1999, warn that global warming, increased shipping traffic and bigger seagoing vessels could cripple the canal’s capacity to operate within a decade. CNN November 1, 2000
[In New York City by 2008] The West Side Highway [which runs along the Hudson River] will be under water. And there will be tape across the windows across the street because of high winds. And the same birds won’t be there. The trees in the median strip will change. There will be more police cars. Why? Well, you know what happens to crime when the heat goes up… Under the greenhouse effect, extreme weather increases. Depending on where you are in terms of the hydrological cycle, you get more of whatever you’re prone to get. New York can get droughts, the droughts can get more severe and you’ll have signs in restaurants saying “Water by request only.” – James Hansen testimony before Congress in June 1988
“Scientist ponder why World’s Climate is changing; a major cooling is considered to be inevitable” – New York Times May 21, 1975
“Our projection of 2013 for the removal of ice in summer is not accounting for the last two minima, in 2005 and 2007, So given that fact, you can argue that may be our projection of 2013 is already too conservative.” Wieslaw Maslowski, research professor at the Naval Postgraduate School.

Obama’s recent statements on guns include, referring to AR’s with 30 round mags “you don’t need that to hunt a deer” and “AK-47’s belong in the hands of soldiers, not criminals”. Looking at these words one could only conclude he does not approve of us normal citizens owning semiauto rifles with large capacity magazines. He even showed up on television a couple months back and cried about the children killed in mass shootings. Now, please excuse my cynicism, but really, let’s look at some uncomfortable facts about this man. Under Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder presided over operation “Fast and Furious”. In this scheme, our BATFE and DOJ purposely allowed scores of the same types of rifles he claims only “belong” in the hands of soldiers, to be given into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. Our executive officials whose expressed duty is to ensure the law is enforced, not only refused to enforce plain law, they KNOWINGLY armed some of the most vicious criminals on this planet with guns that they want us to believe are so destructive and evil we shouldn’t let anyone have them unless, of course, they are working for the state. How can this same man, come on our televisions and expect us to believe that he wants to limit our access to guns, it’s “for the children”?
Are we going to let someone who’s family enjoys the protection of many able bodied, well trained, well armed men, at our expense, for the rest of his life, convince us that guns don’t belong in the hands of us commoners? It’s obviously fine with him that weapons are around his wife and kids, as long as it is only his minions with them. Are we going to allow the same people who arm ISIS and the Mexican Mafia to disarm us? These people purposely let those guns go to known animals, for the purpose of using the deaths of innocents to come back on us, and use it against US to take OUR rights. Can anyone who would have any part in such deceit, really have the interests of innocent citizens at heart? There is only one answer. They don’t care about crime, Obama doesn’t care about “the children”. They care about power and money and the system that provides it for them. Disarming the population is necessary to ensure that the people will never threaten that system. “Reasonable gun control” means only the minions of the state have them. It never stops, the next step is always “reasonable” to them, until their aim is achieved. Obama and company need to be reminded that the second amendment was not written to ensure that our right to “hunt a deer” shall not be infringed. It has a much greater purpose. We do not intend to give it up.
In this NY Post article: NYPost , The US Attorney General announces that courts who actually enforce the laws in their jurisdiction are racist and will face investigations, and possibly lose Federal funding. That’s right, enforcing the law, expecting blacks and minorities to follow the same laws as whites, or pay the consequences, is racist.
Quoted from the article:
In lieu of fines and jail time, Lynch urges the nation’s 6,500 municipal courts to provide an avenue for offenders to perform “community service” or take advantage of “amnesty days,” whereby outstanding arrest warrants are cleared for nominal fees.
A strongly worded “guidance” letter, written by her civil-rights team, warns that a local court policy of enforcing warrants for failure to pay court fines and fees can have an adverse “disparate impact” on African-Americans, who are fined and/or arrested for outstanding warrants at “disproportionate” rates versus whites.”
“In court systems receiving federal funds, these practices may also violate Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, when they unnecessarily impose disparate harm on the basis of race,” the nine-page letters states.
How much more obvious do they have to get before people will finally admit that Obama and his minions are pushing an illegal, racist, and dangerous agenda? Less than a year left now, they’ve saved the best for last. A final desperate push for even more anti-American policies.
Have a good look at the image below. This is a map of North America as we believe it looked around 12,000 years ago. Notice glaciers covered nearly ALL of Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. 100% of Canada, Michigan, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. On the east coast all of New York state and Massachusetts north, iced year round.
Now we know that sometime between 10 or 12 thousand years ago, and oh, the 1500’s when Europeans started to explore mainland North America. All of this glacier cover retreated north. WHY? Not from car exhaust, not from factories or power plants. NO human activity can explain this worldwide increase in temperature and loss of glacier cover.
So we know that the earth has generally been warming up for at least 12 THOUSAND YEARS. Glaciers have been retreating since. With fluctuations of course. Let’s Fast forward to the present. Al Gore, Obama, and a bunch of alarmist “scientists” are warning that the warming is accelerating, and a major disaster is surely on the horizon. But not to worry, not only have they discerned exactly how and why the warming is happening, they know how to fix it. But it’s going to take money. Lots and lots of your money.
The culprit is carbon dioxide, that’s right. Plain carbon dioxide that plants breathe. They are actually brainwashing generations of people that carbon dioxide is a toxic pollutant.
They expect you to believe that not only is “global warming” or “climate change” your fault, but if you give them enough taxes and enough power over your activities, they can STOP IT! Of course most of the highest profile proponents of this scheme are heavily invested in the “carbon banks” that will profit to the tune of TRILLIONS of dollars if they can get their scheme approved worldwide. The same such philanthropists who expect you to believe their intentions are purely about saving the world are also heavily invested in the alternative energy industries and the “green” solutions that will be legislated into mandatory requirements to turn the runaway warming around. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal for Al Gore and his elite friends, doesn’t it? Don’t worry, they will be exempt from the new green ways. They will still live in mansions and travel by private jets and huge limos while the have nots will, through higher and higher taxes on energy, be incrementally forced into smaller and smaller houses and public transportation. But hey, IT’S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD. Certainly Obama and company wouldn’t lie to you. Surely their own huge potential profits would not weigh into their decisions. The same liberals who know for a fact that governments wage wars that kill millions of innocents, to keep the military industrial complex raking in the dough (they do). Who don’t trust the pharmaceutical industry to have the people’s interest above profit (they don’t). These same intelligent souls gleefully accept and even cheer on this movement. Oblivious to the billions that are spent on it and the countless trillions to be made on it if their goals are achieved. No, money could not skew the righteous intentions of this noble cause.
No matter how many times they are caught tampering with the results, no matter how many times their models are called into question. These virtuous champions of the left are above petty profiteering. No, the science is settled.
Both sides are shaking in their boots that this guy could actually make it. The Republicans are beside themselves on what to do about him. They seem to be willing to do whatever it takes to get him out of the way no matter how much it damages “the party”, no matter how much it damages the appearance of the democratic process. No matter how many votes he brings. They are obviously desperate. Why is this? Someone snuck through the system and is stirring up the peasants. The powers that be are not amused.
Trump IS an unknown quantity and that scares a lot of people. He could embarrass us. How much worse could he embarrass us than the wretched excuse of a leader we’ve had to bear over the last 7 years? The Obama presidency has been a worldwide disaster.
I know one thing. We keep electing professional politicians that promise change, but we keep getting a bigger, new and improved version of the same shit sandwich. More war, more debt, more illegal immigrants we don’t have jobs for, more laws, less freedom. Put a new POTUS in from the other party and what changes? No matter what they promise, no matter how they preach and cry “it will be DIFFERENT” it never is. 8 years pass and the debt is doubled, we are at war in twice as many countries, and no one profits except politicians and the military industrial complex. Oh, and the bankers at the top who own it all and lend the government the money to keep it all going. They can’t have just anyone they haven’t vetted and financed, and can count on not to really make things hard on the real bosses, to be able to just walk in and actually grab a position with a little bit of power.
Trump may not be all that his supporters believe he is. He probably isn’t. But he IS our only hope right now. Rest assured that the establishment will not make this mistake again. If they can get this genie back in the bottle, they’ll make sure it will NEVER be found. They will never again allow an outsider to get this close. This is our one shot at starting a peaceful revolution. We can’t afford to pass it up.
In order to have a generally lawful and orderly society, a majority of the citizens of such society must have a certain degree of respect for the laws that govern it. It’s pretty easy to see we have started losing that respect over the last few decades. Let’s take a stab at why this is.
First, in order for most people to have any respect for the law, they must perceive it as generally fair. If the politicians who make it, and the officers who enforce it, are not held accountable and go unpunished for flagrant violations, of course the majority see it is not fair. Such cases are daily reminders that the law is different for the wealthy and powerful, and everybody else.
Next, in order for the system to be fair, it must be fairly easy to understand. If the state is to have no mercy upon the people, and take the stand that “ignorance of the law is no excuse” then how can it be fair to have uncountable thousands upon thousands of laws? Do a little online research. As far as I can tell, no one will even TRY to count the number of US Federal laws. This is unacceptable by any reasonable person who believes in a free and fair society.
If it takes around 7 YEARS of secondary education to get a license to practice law in this country (and even then you specialize in just a small portion of “law”), how can the government expect all of us simple folk to even know what all the laws are? Much less be able to live in accordance with them all? Don’t worry, the man will surely let you know if they decide you’ve broken it.
We elect and pay over 500 people to go to DC and legislate. And legislate they do. Besides all of the laws our actual legislators vote into being, the beast of a government we have has begun allowing all of it’s separate departments to produce regulations, and enforce those regulations with the power of law. Thousands and thousands of “laws” that were never voted on by your representatives, just written into being by the IRS, Department of Energy, Bureau of Land Management, Department of Labor, Department of Transportation, on and on it goes.
None of the above even begins to get into the same exact scenario going on at the state and local levels. Two hundred years of this and the situation is now nearly unbearable.
We MUST reign in our overlords. We must DEMAND a smaller government that actually restrains itself to only exercising the powers granted to it by our Constitution.
In a bit of positive news, several celebrities have announced their plans to leave the country if Trump gets elected.
Let’s start with the queen of hypocrites, Rosie O’Donnell. She doesn’t believe anyone should have guns. Well, anyone except police and military, oh, and the armed guards that work for her and escort her and her kids around. Sure gonna miss her, yeah.
Al Sharpton recently joined the list. If I was Trump and I did make it to the White House, I’d make Al a deal. Go, and if and when you decide you want to come back, make sure you bring that 4 or 5 million dollars in back taxes. Plus interest and penalties of course.
Everybody’s favorite funny political genius Jon Stewart has not only promised to leave the country but the planet. Wow, do us a favor, please!
Whoopi Goldberg? How would we get by without Whoopi? Her twit of a cohost on The View, Raven-Symonè, claims she isn’t even going to wait for the Presidential election. She says if a Republican gets NOMINATED she’s taking her gang to Canada. Nice!
Hell, liberal crybabies all over the country are threatening to leave in droves. Check out this recent poll of government employees that are threatening to quit: Trump cleans up DC. Hell just putting the man in the office is going to do us so much good before he even makes his first moves I can’t help but vote for the man now.
Politicians on both sides literally hate the fact he is doing so well. God forbid a candidate not chosen by the establishment give them a run for their money. Considering the mess professional politicians have made of things so far, that’s the best endorsement they could give him.
