Throughout History, They Keep Trying

An illustrated history of tenacity.
There is something perverted in the human psyche, something that makes the decent trudge on despite all obstacles and something that makes the evil insist on inflicting their whims on the decent. History is replete with example after example, and this history -- thus far at least -- is available for all to read, and yet the attempts at repeating continue unabated. And we ask ourselves why.

What makes people in power suffer the affliction of insatiability? Why can't they ever be content to lead a good people? What is it that can never fill the bellies of the beasts, and why do they kill us when they realize their own inadequacies rather than step down and walk away in shame? I wish I knew the answer to these questions. The one thing I do know, however, is that evil is doggedly tenacious.

For almost 200 years we in America have been insulated from the desires of tyrants, and we became complacent in that time, telling ourselves that it could never happen here. We felt safe from the horror we witnessed around us in other countries, even as we fought those forces more than once. Little did we realize that we would ever be fighting them at home. And little did we know how ethereal the monster would be and how hard it would be to fight.

Barack Obama and his Socialist cohorts are doing exactly as he told us they would, which is to "radically transform" America, and nearly half the country seems to support his agenda, perhaps not realizing the true intentions of these people. Like Adolph Hitler in the 1930's, the message -- however convoluted it may be -- masks the end result of what they plan. Some would compare it to the parable of the frog in a pot of warm water that is slowly brought to a boil while the frog sits still, not realizing what is happening until he is cooked.

The frustrating part of our current dilemma is that unlike 1930's Germany, we have people here today who are sounding the alarm bells daily, but the warnings fall on deaf ears. People are still in denial that anything like that is happening here in America, despite the evidence all around them. The militarization of police forces around the country, the attempts by the Executive branch to grab our guns and the Left's maneuvers to end the 22nd Amendment are just a few signs of what is to come.

Barack Obama is bankrupting America at a breakneck pace, and devaluing the U.S. currency. He is selectively enforcing American laws and writing his own with a stroke of his blasted pen. His government is buying up guns and ammunition in alarming quantities, and people simply go about their clueless lives like nothing is going on. Entire cities are crumbling under insolvency and unemployment is much, much worse than the numbers they show us on the nightly news.

Illegals protesting in America
Illegal immigrants, who once hid for fear of being deported, are now demanding -- out in the open -- of our elected representatives things which American citizens cannot get. Obama is purging top military commanders from our armed forces, and the media won't even raise an eyebrow over Benghazi. Atheists have American Christians on the defensive almost daily, and still, there are people in this country who don't recognize a problem?

People, it may be uncomfortable to hear, and some of you may call me a kook, but the Cold War never really ended, it just shifted the arena to our shores and made some substitutions in the game. I know there are millions of you out there who are true blue Americans who simply may not recognize the new rules of engagement, but it is imperative that you wake up very soon, or we could lose the greatest country ever to grace the face of the Earth.

As I mentioned earlier these Socialists are relentless, and even the proof of recent history will not deter them from repeating it. Our biggest mistake was letting them out of the shadows in the 1960's. Once out of the bottle, this particular genie
will prove difficult to return there, but we must make it happen, or we will lose it all. The first step is to finally admit that it is happening.

Hubub Over the Hudson and the Man on an Island

Is this really critical in America
right now?
To listen to the mainstream media carry on and on about someone in New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's office closing of traffic lanes on the George Washington Bridge in September, you would think that the event was a tragedy on a level of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the attempt on the U.S. Capitol Building. Oh, the wailing and gnashing of teeth, the outrage and the indignation of the media is deafening, especially if you live in the Tri-State area.

While I understand that traffic in the Northeast is much more than annoying under normal conditions, it must also be noted that people who deal with it everyday should be somewhat used to it by now. So now that we find out that the lane closures of September were political retribution for the Fort Lee NJ mayor, I can appreciate people feeling a tad angry, but really, this incident must be taken in the proper context.

The media has shown much more interest in the story of a traffic jam than they have about a terrorist attack on a U.S. Consulate building in Libya, in which four Americans were killed. According to, the media has had 17 times more coverage of "Bridgegate" than it has in the last 6 months of the IRS scandal. And Fast and Furious? Um, what was that, again?

I realize how insensitive I must sound considering that people in the Northeast were needlessly inconvenienced for some Governor's aide's grudge, but really, is this story critical right now in America? Given the implications of possibly damaging Chris Christie for 2016, we must remember that 2016 is still 2 years away, so do we need to be bludgeoned with boredom from a rabid press who couldn't have expressed any less curiosity about the past of one Senator Barack Obama in 2008, or about how our Libyan Ambassador and three other American heroes died while now-President Obama slept?

Besides, the media is assuming that Christie -- based on early polls -- is already the presumptive Republican nominee, while the electorate has not even considered such things as yet. The TEA Party should be free of the IRS scrutiny they faced in the last few years, and they will be back with a vengeance. Our only worry along those lines is our testy relationship with so-called "establishment" Republicans, who will fight for their political lives in the next two years, and will give no quarter even against supposed allies.

There is a terrible tragedy besetting America in the 21st century, and it has to do with the alleged "free press". Of course, it began long before the turn of the century, but it has gotten worse as the new millennium ages. The American people once depended on the information provided by an unbiased media for their information, but that has become nothing but a ruse for the promotion of ones own ideological agenda. And to make matters worse, the alleged "watchdogs" of government abuse are unabashed in their cheer leading.

Ironically, in the case of Governor Christie -- and I must qualify the following by saying I have never been a big fan of the man -- the media who will eventually build him up as the Republican challenger to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 showdown must first tear him down over the bridge debacle to set the stage for the general election. We will first endure the tedious repetition of "Bridgegate" with all the film and print coverage, and then finally be spared in a couple of weeks.

Losers we let the media
pick for us.
But the film and print articles will be dutifully stored away for the home stretch to Election '16, and the interim -- after the "evidence" is safely stored away -- will be all about how Christie is the best man for the Republican party challenge to the eventual Queen Hillary.

So for now, Chris Christie is a man on an Island, a man where no party will embrace him while the media sharks tear him asunder. He will emerge from "Bridgegate" just fine in the short term. But the media vaults will be bursting to get free just in time for the final assault on the Governor.

We can stop this, however. We can let the media think their plan is working for as long as possible, and then nominate a true Conservative, and blow their minds. If the TEA Party can play along convincingly, we can sneak a Ted Cruz in under the wire during the primaries, and blow the election wide open before a gape-mouthed press and Democrat party.

I know, I know...wishful thinking. But hey, it got your mind off of "Bridgegate" for a few minutes, right? And who knows, sometimes science fiction does precede reality, proving that a fertile mind can predict the future.

Make it so, America.

The Re-Branding of an Industry

Oops! Global Warming research
ship stuck in the ice. 
Newsflash: the Left actually hates Saul Alinsky when he is used against them.
Chris Hayes of MSNBC's All In is as mad as Hell, and he is not going to take it any more, to quote Howard Beale of the film Network. Chris recently took to the airwaves (cableways?) to opine in plaintive fashion about all of these right wingers giddily pointing out that a research ship from Australia -- ferrying a group of climate scientists -- has been stuck in increasingly thickening ice since Christmas Eve. You can watch the pitiable mewling of Chris Hayes here.

Fortunately, the crew and passengers of the ship were in no danger of sinking or starving, as the ship had enough supplies for weeks. You see, we (the Right) only laugh when something is genuinely funny. And the irony of this situation was just too rich to ignore. A group of scientists -- who Chris Hayes claims does things like this for "no monetary gain, but only to save the planet", yet has the wherewithal to charter a large ship -- sailed to Antarctica to further bolster the findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), ostensibly.  But when they got to the South Pole, their ship became surrounded by thick ice, thus trapping the ship.

The ensuing hilarity, from places like The Drudge Report to The Rush Limbaugh Show to Climate Depot, was enough to set the Left ablaze, and Chris Hayes was all over it. And he brought along some real experts to help him "set the record straight". Michael Mann of the discredited "hockey stick" fame was up first, followed by Sam Seder of The Majority Report, a leftist propaganda organ, and Eric Boehlert of Media Matters, an organization reported to have written much of MSNBC's material.

Note in the clip how they whine about the "big money" on the right fueling the global warming skepticism, and how they complain about the mocking of this event by...mocking it. More irony. For starters, there is no more money to be had than that wielded by the global warming crowd, from the IPCC itself to Al Gore and George Soros. But we must remember that these folks have nothing but the salvation of the Earth at heart. Stifle your laughter, please.

And complaining about being mocked is the epitome of hypocrisy from the likes of leftist MSNBC, for they have perfected that tactic over the years, making Saul Alinsky proud. My, how they hate having the tables turned on them. But Hayes and friends go on to attempt to mock the skeptics by saying sarcastically, "Yeah, it's cold, it's winter"!

Perhaps the best part of all was Michael Mann smugly telling the audience that global warming climate change was actually responsible for more ice forming in the South Pole, because warmer water means more moisture in the air which contributes to the formation of ice, and that is was the North Pole we should be focused on, because the Arctic would be ice free in decades.  Huh?

Lost revenues for the Left
So a layman such as myself would be forced to ponder why all that warm water in the Arctic would not produce the same effect. Call me kooky, or just a skeptic, but I am not stupid, and many people are starting to come to the same realization that these clowns -- who profess to be scientists and not ideologues -- are selling us a bridge they don't own.

Such is the necessity to re-brand the term "global warming" into the more flexible "climate change", but people are no longer buying it, and the left is coming unhinged as they see their empire of global catastrophe come crashing down like a section of the Larsen B ice shelf in Antarctica. Think of the "big money" they will be missing out on if the people begin to resume their lives, knowing that life goes on until God says it's enough, and that Man has no say in the matter.
