Brexit: Democrats, You Ought To Wake Up SCARED, Because Your Vile Failures Have Caught Up With You

June 24, 2016

I am three-quarters English and one-quarter Swedish; and the three-quarters part has never been more proud than when I learned that Britain had voted to get the hell out of the sewer-swamp usually called the European Union.

We can go back to the French Revolution, or the Communist revolution of 1918, or ObamaCare (see also here for gems like “Calling for a massive new government program to cut costs is sort of like moving to Death Valley for the reduced air conditioning bills. Alas, it’s not so.”): you get promised a massive load of lies about all these wonderful features and benefits and services that all prove to be utterly untrue.  But then when you want to leave you’re fearmongered and demagogued and demonized that horrifying consequences will ensue because the bureaucrats have set up the system to explode if people ever want freedom.  It’s a completely failed system built on dishonesty and bogus promises, but when they were putting their hell together, they interconnected it with so many other vital functions of government that pulling out the failed program will be akin to ripping a beating heart out of a chest.  That’s exactly what Obama did with ObamaCare and its exactly what the European socialist bureaucrats and technocrats did with the European Union.  And by the time you realize that they lied to you, the same people who lied to you scream at you that it’s too late to do anything about it.

But there’s that point where decent people say, “Blow the whole system the hell up, then!  I am DONE with you fools!”  People in Britain got fed up with the imposed immigration and open borders; they got fed up with all the stipulations and regulations Brussels imposed on them; they got fed up of not being allowed to run their own country.  And as a result they were called ignorant morons and racists by the elite.

Just like in America now.

Barack Obama hasn’t just failed America; he has failed the entire free world.  And on every issue under the sun, whether it is Obama’s massively failed foreign policy and terrorism, or Obama’s massively failed immigration imperial tyranny, Hillary Clinton has vowed to follow Obama’s path toward American suicide.

And this Brexit vote exposes the greatest area of Obama’s catastrophic, horrifying failure.

In the Brexit vote, THE signature issue was immigration, with the European Union telling Britain they were going to be forced to accept Muslim refugees until their nation is destroyed.  And tonight the British chose to recognize simple reality and reject the ocean of liberal lies.

I want to show you that Britain just voted to get out of the EU because of the horrific failure of one failed fool and one truly evil political party: Barack Hussein Obama and his Democratic Party.

In America, Obama just got handed a massive defeat for his foolhardy immigration plan.  The way the law works couldn’t be more crystal clear: if the SCOTUS splits, the lower court verdict remains in full force.  But Obama is a true fascist at heart and he already basically said in his speech he would simply ignore the Constitution and the law and continue doing what the hell he wants.

Just a few months ago a 4-4 SCOTUS tie worked the other way, with unions being allowed by the split to continue collecting fees from workers who chose not to join and did not want to pay for the unions’ collective bargaining activities.  Conservatives didn’t like it because had Scalia been alive it would have been a very different result in OUR favor; but we abided by the system because we value law and order.  But Obama is a true fascist and elections only matter when Democrats win and Supreme Court decisions only matter when Obama likes them.  For Obama, any inconvenient law is an irrelevant law.  So the same president who said at least 22 times he did NOT have the authority to play games with immigration proceeded to do what he himself said he would be an anti-democratic tyrant emperor to do.  And now that the law tells him he has to stop doing it or be a criminal he doesn’t care; because he’s packed the system with political operatives like his lawthug AG Loretta Lynch.

Barack Obama is a wicked, lawless man and the impact of his foolishness has been truly terrifying to anyone who will look for the truth.  The world is already starting to unravel.

Consider the giant cliff that Obama has led the free world off of when it comes to exploding Islamic terrorism that Obama can’t acknowledge comes from Islam no matter how many people die:

Deaths Due To Terrorism

By the time Barack Obama leaves office, terrorism will have skyrocketed by more than one-thousand, seven-hundred percent under his watch.  It is now 800 percent worse than it was from 2010 as the graph shows it exponentially metastasizing every two years and you aint seen NOTHIN’ yet.  Because terrorism has been and will continue to double every year under this failed fool who “fundamentally transformed” the “war on terror” to “overseas contingency operations” and started calling “terrorism” “man-caused disaster.”  And then had the mosquito balls to claim that using a term that simply described plain reality like “Islamic radicalism” amounted to “magic words.”

As a result of Obama’s utterly disastrous foreign policy which has been based on the most dishonest administration in the entire history of the republic lying to us by claiming that Islamic State was “JayVee,” and that the intelligence said things were going swell when in reality it was being “fundamentally transformed” by Obama for naked political reasons, contemplate the hell that resulted:

U.N. Says a Record 65 Million People Displaced in 2015
U.N. refugee agency says persecution and conflict in places like Syria and Afghanistan raised the total number of refugees and internally displaced people.
June 20, 2016, at 2:00 a.m

GENEVA (AP) — The U.N. refugee agency says persecution and conflict in places like Syria and Afghanistan raised the total number of refugees and internally displaced people worldwide to a record 65.3 million at the end of last year.

The previous year, 2014, had already seen the highest number of refugees worldwide since World War II, with 60 million displaced people. But last year — when Europe staggered under the arrival of large numbers of migrants — topped that record by nearly 10 percent, the UNHCR said Monday in unveiling its annual Global Trends Report.

The Geneva-based agency urged leaders from Europe and elsewhere to do more to end the wars that are fanning the exodus of people from their homelands.

“I hope that the message carried by those forcibly displaced reaches the leaderships: We need action, political action, to stop conflicts,” said Filippo Grandi, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees. “The message that they have carried is: ‘If you don’t solve problems, problems will come to you.'”

With stark detail, UNHCR said that on average, 24 people had been displaced every minute of every day last year — or 34,000 people a day — up from 6 every minute in 2005. Global displacement has roughly doubled since 1997, and risen by 50 percent since 2011 alone — when the Syria war began.

More than half of all refugees came from three countries: Syria, Afghanistan and Somalia.

Turkey was the “top host” country for the second year running, taking in 2.5 million people — nearly all from neighboring Syria. Afghan neighbor Pakistan had 1.6 million, while Lebanon, next to Syria, hosted 1.1 million.

Grandi said policymakers and advocacy groups admittedly face daunting challenges helping the largest subset of displaced people: Some 40.8 million internally displaced in countries in conflict. Another 21.3 million were refugees and some 3.2 million more were seeking asylum.

More than a million people fled to Europe last year, causing a political crisis in the EU.

Grandi called on countries to work to fight the xenophobia that has accompanied the rise in refugee populations, and decried both physical barriers — like fences erected by some European countries — as well as legislative ones that limit access to richer, more peaceful EU states.

Such European policies were “spreading a negative example around the world,” he said.

“There is no plan B for Europe in the long run,” Grandi said. “Europe will continue to receive people seeking asylum. Their numbers may vary … but it is inevitable.”

I think I just documented my point: we have refugees because we have terrorism.  We have refugees and we have terrorism because we have OBAMA.  His policies FAILED.  They failed wildly and they failed miserably they failed spectacularly.

As you read that, consider the malignant narcissist false messiah that Obama is previously telling us his presidency would result in the oceans being leveled and the planet being healed.

Go back to 2009 when Obama went to Egypt and gave a speech apologizing for America and saying that by pretending there was peace when there WAS no peace and that there was no war when there WAS war that he would “transcend the divide” between Islam and the West the same exact dishonest way he spouted that lie to the American people when he falsely claimed he would transcend the divide between Republicans and Democrats when he was already being THE most politically partisan and divisive president this nation had ever seen.  And Obama is just like his god Lucifer in that he can no more acknowledge and admit that his policies have failed and repent and promise to start doing the right thing than the DEVIL could do these things.  Barack Obama is demonic; he is a demonic fool.  And Hilary Clinton was long ago forged in the exact same demonic mode.

Barack Obama hasn’t merely failed America, or failed our allies like Britain and Israel; he has failed the HUMAN SPECIES.

Had Barack Obama been president on December 7th, 1941, when Japan launched a devastating criminal sneak attack on the U.S. fleet at Pearl Harbor, he would have blamed airplanes and slandered anyone who wanted to hold Japan responsible as “racist.”  Because that’s precisely what Obama has done time and time again; blamed GUNS when it was TERRORISM that was responsible and demonized as racist those who rightly pointed out that the terrorism comes from ONE PLACE: the ideology of radical Islam.

And just as there is no possible way in hell America could have won World War II if we didn’t know who or what we were fighting, Obama has already massively lost the war on terror that he won’t acknowledge is a “war” and that he won’t acknowledge comes from Islam.  And we are drifting from one terrorist attack – which Obama called “man-caused disaster” – to another as a result.  And each terrorist attack which is a manifest failure of Obama to protect the nation is nothing more than a cynical opportunity for an incredibly cynical man to demagogue as a crisis caused by the 2nd Amendment rather than by radical Islam.

Obama is a fool with his head buried in delusions and lies.

Consider the nightmarish carnage that that Orlando nightclub looked like after that “Allahu-Akbar”-screaming Muslim terrorist had massacred 49 people and left another fifty-two screaming in their own blood, and then consider what our Fool-in-Chief recently said:

[T]he truth of the matter is that for all the challenges we face, all the problems that we have, if you had to be — if you had to choose any moment to be born in human history, not knowing what your position was going to be, who you were going to be, you’d choose this time. The world is less violent than it has ever been. It is healthier than it has ever been. It is more tolerant than it has ever been. It is better fed then it’s ever been. It is more educated than it’s ever been.

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are morally insane.

Consider what Obama’s Attorney General just declared to prove she was totally unfit for any other job than being Obama’s political tool:

“We stand with you to say that the good in this world far outweighs the evil, that our common humanity transcends our differences, and that our most effective response to terror and to hatred is compassion, it’s unity, and it’s love,” Lynch said.

Yep, that ought to be the United States government response to every vicious attack by Islamic State, all right.  Either that, or we ought to throw out Obama and every single one of these pathological Democrat fools and choose instead to survive.

This is what the British people were contemplating when they voted to reject everything these fools and their liberal and insider ilk were blathering: their very national survival

We’re watching the markets nosedive.  There are often consequences to finally standing up and doing the right thing that simply had to be done.  You find out you have stage four cancer and you want to live, you have the chemotherapy and the radiation and the surgery.  And they cut on you and put poison in you and literally irradiate you to kill the disease that will otherwise claim your life.  And it’s pretty certain that you’re going to get really, really sick in the short run.  And that’s what you do if you want to fight to live.  Because the alternative is to die.

That’s the way liberalism works: it’s like an evil criminal gang; once you’re in, you don’t dare ever leave because the left always embeds terrifying consequences in their house-of-horror policies and programs.

You have to first be drive to the point where you say, “I’ll take the uncertainty and all the horrible predictions over the certainty of the kind of massive failure that I have with my vile government.”

For the second straight year the American people have declared that the NUMBER ONE PROBLEM facing America is GOVERNMENT ITSELF, says Gallup.

And the European Union is even WORSE.

The European Union is what limousine liberals like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and John Kerry fantasize about.

Right now Britain just became the home of the free and the land of the brave while the United States which used to hold that title is still the home of the sleaze and the land of the slave.

We’ll have to wait until November to figure out if we can regain the status of courage and liberty that made us great.

But tonight was a great sign.  And I have no doubt that Hillary Clinton is pulling handfuls of her hair out of her evil head right now.  Because she just saw her Obama-third-term campaign platform take a torpedo in the bow.  The polls are full of crap; what was predicted to be an easy, boring four-point win for remaining in the EU got turned into an easy, boring four-point win for getting the hell off the sinking ship of giant government by fool bureaucrat ostriches who refuse to comprehend reality.

Obama is a liar and he will continue to be a liar.  He’ll be pointing to this Brexit result of HIS OWN FAILED LEADERSHIP and he will be saying, “I warned Britain not to do this.”  And of course the reason they voted to leave the EU in the first place was because Obama as leader of the free world so allowed to world to toxically destabilize that countries were left wondering what to do with these millions and millions and millions of shattered refugee lives – millions of whom themselves will ultimately become terrorists in their bitterness.  All because of Obama’s fail.

Obama is leader of the free world.  And when Obama quit leading on the key issue facing planet earth and started blathering his fool idiocy about climate change – not even being able to come up with a damn STRATEGY even after all these years in office – our allies were left rudderless and dismayed and paralyzed.  Whereas our enemies are more emboldened than they were when Hitler was taking over Europe going on seventy years ago.  Like then, it will very likely take a world war to overcome Obama’s failure to truly lead the world against terrorism.

What Obama should have done is CONTINUED the “war on terror” and dealing with the ramifications of “terrorism” rather than playing “magic word games” (“Overseas contingency operations”? “Man-caused disasters”?  Seriously???) by refusing to even acknowledge who or what our actual enemy was.  Instead of calling Islamic State “JayVee” Obama should have been taking this cancerous threat seriously.  He should have come up with a strategy and ensured that strategy WORKED by punching Islamic State so hard in the face that they would be forced to understand that Allah had turned his back on them.  Obama should have – instead of demanding that we accept millions of embittered refugees into our borders who are ticking time bombs to terrorism themselves – created giant safe zones in the Middle East so that these people would have somewhere safe to go.

But there IS nowhere safe to go under Obama.  San Bernardino and Orlando are recent examples of the fact that the UNITED STATES is no longer a safe place.

Donald Trump has been talking about ALL this stuff: Islam; immigration; trade; blowing up the status quo because the status quo is suicidal.  People are going to wake up tomorrow morning and realize that Trump – who sided with the pro-Brexit vote while Obama and Hillary commanded Britain to remain in slavery – bet rightHe sided with the pro-Brexit movement and announced that the British had just taken back their own country.  And he pointed out that that effort – THAT SUCCESSFUL EFFORT THAT WON THAT ALL THE ELITEST SAID WOULD LOSE – was the model for his own campaign.

Donald Trump himself – like the Brexit – is the result of the cancer that Obama insinuated into America and the world America used to lead.  Obama deceitfully blames the phenomena of Donald Trump on Republicans; but if you are anything short of a danged fool you immediately know that the Republican Party wanted Trump even less than Obama did.  The GOP was simply not able to contain the RAGE that Obama created; just like the Democrats couldn’t as half the party supported an avowed SOCIALIST who like Trump wants to blow up the system.  You keep hearing the media report “Republican anger” but the Democrats are in FACT EVEN MORE ANGRY and the “beware right-wing Republican hate” meme is just another lie of the leftist media propaganda.  Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are BOTH the result of the moral and political sewer that is Barack Obama.  He has failed and regardless of whatever the media propaganda is spewing everybody knows in their gut Obama has failed and there is ZERO confidence in the system in his disgraceful aftermath.

I already predicted why I believe Donald Trump will be our next president.  And that prediction just came to pass in the Brexit vote in spite of all the elitest and media propaganda naysaying to the contrary.  Things are going MISERABLY; people are not only angry they are RABID because of the failed way Obama has demonically ran this country with lies and slanders rather than with results.  They want a true change; and Hillary Clinton couldn’t BE more “status quo.”

Obama is part of this Brexit down to when he fearmongered Britain and said our closes ally would end up in the back of the line.  Those were HIS fool words about America’s greatest ally and how much Obama trivializes that sacred relationship.  And an angry British people said, “UP YOURS OBAMA!!!”  And well they should have.

You should be worried, Democrat.  Because everything you stand for and believe in is a lie and an illusion and a fraud and a failure.  And to quote your wicked president’s vile reverend who once blamed America for the carnage it suffered at 9/11 (“No, no, no!  NOT God bless America!  God DAMN America!”), your chickens are coming home to roost.

The thing I find the most hilarious is the thought of all those sweeping executive orders and executive memoranda that Obama used to masquerade his executive orders.  When Donald Trump begins playing the game the same fascist that Obama played, what are you going to say, Democrat, when Trump does to you after you spent eight vile years mocking conservatives for their anger over that same fascist hijack of the system???  When you could have and should have reigned in YOUR monster, you mocked us; now how are you going to feel when the consequences of that are that a monster rises who shoves it in YOUR face the way you kept shoving it in OURS???  I predicted you would ultimately get yours back after the 2012 election and – if the spirit of Brexit still stands in a few months – your bill for all of your hypocrisy and fascism will come due in 2016.

Why Being A Democrat Means Being A ‘DEMOnic bureauCRAT’ And A Rabid Despiser Of Truth. And That Means Our National Extinction.

June 22, 2015

I’ve got to begin somewhere, so let me begin by pointing out that Barack Hussein Obama stands as THE most documented liar in the entire history of the world.  There has NEVER been a human being who was seen more times by more people telling something that is absolutely provable to have been a lie than this man.  And as merely ONE of myriad examples of the liar that Obama is, here is Politifact pointing out that Obama said AT LEAST 37 TIMES something that he clearly had to know was a lie – that if you like your doctor UNDER HIS PLAN you could keep your doctor and that if you like your current health insurance UNDER HIS PLAN that you could keep your current insurance.  Obama won the coveted title of “Liar of the Year” for that one, utterly destroying his competitors such as the Ayatollah, Kim Il Sung, Vladimir Putin, etc.  And just sticking with Politifact, they go on for four solid pages listing by the dozens of things that Barack Hussein Obama has said that were completely and entirely LIES.  And I cite Politifact because there is no question that it is a very left-leaning organization (Just see here and here and here and here for documentation supporting the truth of that statement.  These are people who go after Republicans in nine out of ten cases); and so when even a leftist entity says Obama is a liar, well, HE’S A LIAR.

On that same issue of ObamaCare that Obama lied about in speech after speech at least 37 documented times, one clause from the Affordable Care Act – which is neither “affordable” or “caring” – has reared its ugly head: the meaning of the words “established by the state.”   Fully 34 states of the 50 states do NOT have their own exchanges. Only sixteen states actually qualify as having been “established by the state.”  The clear meaning of those four words guts ObamaCare because ONLY state-run exchanges would qualify and it is an inconvenient truth that This section dealing with the creation of state exchanges and the provision of subsidies states, quite crystal clearly, that subsidies are only available in exchanges “established by a State,” which the law expressly defines as the 50 states plus the District of Columbia.  In any ordinary court proceeding involving a law or a contract, the FIRST place a court looks is the clear meaning of the words.  And in this case they are QUITE clear.  to make it even more clear, in the case of many of the states, state law itself says the principle behind ObamaCare is ILLEGAL.

The ObamaCare pushers and pimps – and note that this law was entirely written BY Democrats FOR Democrats WITH Democrat approval – now argue that they did not intend the law to require that states establish their own exchanges.  They say it is frankly asinine to understand the clear meaning of the words in their obvious clear meaning.  A huge problem with that is one of the health care experts who claimed he was one of the principle architects of the law went on a self-aggrandizing tour in which he boasted that those four words WERE VERY INTENTIONAL to coerce the states to do the very thing that the people who want the law overturned therefore correctly claim the law required.  ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber boasted about having specifically worded the law to force and coerce states to set up their own exchanges or else they would be denied federal funding.  Here are Jonathan Gruber’s very words:

What’s important to remember politically about this is if you’re a state and you don’t set up an exchange, that means your citizens don’t get their tax credits—but your citizens still pay the taxes that support this bill. So you’re essentially saying [to] your citizens you’re going to pay all the taxes to help all the other states in the country. I hope that that’s a blatant enough political reality that states will get their act together and realize there are billions of dollars at stake here in setting up these exchanges. But, you know, once again the politics can get ugly around this. [emphasis added]

Here is the video of him saying it:

Jonathan Gruber said a lot of amazing things about how profoundly STUPID Democrats believed the American people to be.  We’re SHEEP to them.  We’re FARM ANIMALS who have to be steered either to our pasture or to our slaughter by a class of experts who are like gods to us.  I’ve written about some of what he’s said.

In the face of this obvious embarrassment, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi claimed she didn’t even know who Gruber was. She claimed he didn’t write the Democrat’s bill.  But we have her on the record and on that record we know she was a LIAR when she made that false claim because back in 2009 – when it actually mattered – she had previously said:

PELOSI: We’re not finished getting all of our reports back from CBO, but we’ll have a side by side to compare. But our bill brings down rates. I don’t know if you have seen Jonathan Gruber of MIT’s analysis of what the comparison is to the status quo versus what will happen in our bill for those who seek insurance within the exchange. And our bill takes down those costs, even some now, and much less preventing the upward spiral.

So again, we’re confident about what we set out to do in the bill: middle class affordability, security for our seniors, and accountability to our children.

We similarly have former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid also specifically acknowledging Jonathan Gruber’s massive contribution to the writing and passage of ObamaCare on the very floor of the U.S. Senate.

Obama distanced himself from Gruber and all but directly claimed he’d never heard of the guy and Gruber hadn’t had anything to do with anything:

The fact that an adviser who was never on our staff expressed an opinion that I completely disagree with in terms of the voters is not a reflection on the actual process that was run,” Obama declared at a press conference

There’s a big fat giant problem with what Obama and Democrats are now saying: we now have 20,000 emails that prove that they are all LIARS:

MIT Economist Jonathan Gruber Had Bigger Role in Health Law, Emails Show
Adviser whose comments on Affordable Care Act touched off a furor worked more closely than previously known with White House
By Stephanie Armour
Updated June 21, 2015 8:00 p.m. ET

Jonathan Gruber, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology economist whose comments about the health-care law touched off a political furor, worked more closely than previously known with the White House and top federal officials to shape the law, previously unreleased emails show.

The emails, provided by the House Oversight Committee to The Wall Street Journal, cover messages Mr. Gruber sent from January 2009 through March 2010. Committee staffers said they worked with MIT to obtain the 20,000 pages of emails.

The committee released the information in the days before the U.S. Supreme Court rules on a lawsuit that could strike down subsidies on the federal health-care insurance exchange.

The emails show frequent consultations between Mr. Gruber and top Obama administration staffers and advisers in the White House and the Department of Health and Human Services on the Affordable Care Act. They show he informed HHS about interviews with reporters and discussions with lawmakers, and he consulted with HHS about how to publicly describe his role.

The administration has sought to distance itself from the economist in the wake of his controversial statements in a 2013 video, where he said the health law passed because of the “huge political advantage” of the legislation’s lacking transparency. He also referred to the “stupidity of the American voter.”

Republicans seized on the comments as evidence that supporters of the law purposely misled the public about its costs. Mr. Gruber received nearly $400,000 from HHS for his work focusing on health-policy computer models, according to public records.

The White House has described Mr. Gruber as having a limited role in crafting the law. President Barack Obama in 2014 said Mr. Gruber was “some adviser who never worked on our staff.” Mr. Gruber told Congress last year he disagreed with the widespread characterization of his role as the “architect” of Mr. Obama’s health-care plan.

“His proximity to HHS and the White House was a whole lot tighter than they admitted,” said Rep.  Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah), chairman of the House oversight committee. “There’s no doubt he was a much more integral part of this than they’ve said. He put up this facade he was an arm’s length away. It was a farce.”

Mr. Chaffetz on Sunday sent a letter to HHS Secretary  Sylvia Mathews Burwell requesting information justifying the department’s sole-source contract with Mr. Gruber for his work on the health law.

Mr. Gruber declined to comment.

Meaghan Smith, an HHS spokeswoman, said: “As has been previously reported, Mr. Gruber was a widely used economic modeler for administrations and state governments run by both parties—both before and after the Affordable Care Act was passed. These emails only echo old news.”

An HHS official said Mr. Gruber possessed a statistically sophisticated microsimulation model to evaluate how the change in the number of individuals with health insurance coverage would affect costs to the government and the private sector. In 2010, an independent Inspector General responding to a request from Republican Senators reviewed documentation related to Mr. Gruber’s HHS contracts and found the agency met federal requirements for both contracts, according to the HHS official.

The emails show Mr. Gruber was in touch with key advisers such as  Peter Orszag, who was director of the Office of Management and Budget, an arm of the White House that oversaw federal programs.

He was also in contact with Jason Furman, an economic adviser to the president, and  Ezekiel Emanuel, who was then a special adviser for health policy at OMB.

One email indicates Mr. Gruber was invited to meet with Mr. Obama. In a July 2009 email, he wrote that Mr. Orszag had “invited me to meet with the head honcho to talk about cost control.”

“Thank you for being an integral part of getting us to this historic moment,” according to Sept. 9, 2009 email to Mr. Gruber from  Jeanne Lambrew, a top Obama administration health adviser who worked at HHS and the White House. In a November 2009 email, she called Mr. Gruber “our hero.”

In an August 2009 email,  Lawrence Summers—then a top economic adviser in the administration—emailed Mr. Gruber and asked “if you were POTUS, what would u do now?” Mr. Gruber responded that Mr. Obama should hold out for enough money to do universal coverage.

Mr. Gruber also informed HHS about interviews he had with health policy reporters such as  Ezra Klein, previously of the Washington Post and now with Vox Media. In a November 2009 email, Mr. Gruber let a top HHS official know the conversation went well and the story would post soon.

In a Jan. 8, 2010 email, Mr. Gruber reached out to Ms. Lambrew after a Politico reporter asked why he didn’t disclose his contract before writing publicly about health care. Mr. Gruber ran a description of his responsibilities by Ms. Lambrew for her review before responding.

In a November 2009 email, he apprised HHS of his conversations with former Sen.  Mary Landrieu (D., La.) She had been opposed to the health law but came to support it.

In a Jan. 14, 2010 email, Mr. Furman emailed that “we got a deal with labor. Keep that very close hold.” Unions had been opposing the health law but rallied to support it.

He also in April 2009 supplied HHS with information outlining “winners and losers” if employers responded to the law by moving workers into the exchanges.

In a May 2009 email, he said there would be 3.6 million “losers” who were forced into individual coverage after the health care overhaul. “As you might suspect, this group is largely young and healthy,” he wrote. In an August 2009 email, he said 4.2 million people with employer-sponsored insurance would be dropped from having coverage, a development that hasn’t materialized.

In a Sept. 23, 2009, email, Mr. Gruber emailed Ms. Lambrew saying “pharma is going to be a huge winner from this bill—maybe $15 billion/year in incremental revenue. Any way to go after them harder for financing?”

THE most prominent Democrats are on the record as having lied OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN when it comes to this socialist takeover of THE most important sixth of the U.S. economy.

This ObamaCare law – that has NEVER had majority support by the American people in ANY poll (even the leftist Politifact is forced to acknowledge that fact) – is now more unpopular than it has EVER been.  It was passed ENTELY on lies.  It guts health care.  Overall premiums have skyrocketed in order to provide the subsidies for millions and cover what the left calls “essential health benefits” such as sex changes for transgenders; at the same time, the deductibles have similarly skyrocketed (see here and here) such that the “insurance” people get gives them no actual access to health care whatsoever because they can’t afford to actually see a doctor.  Meanwhile, the networks have shrunk as fewer and fewer doctors are willing to participate in a wicked program.  And the result is that in spite of Obama’s promises, we’ve got more people going to Emergency Rooms for their health care than EVER BEFORE.  These are all just facts.  The Supreme Court has already bailed out Obama and his wicked ObamaCare once over his outright LIES by calling something a “tax” that Obama himself said was NOT a tax but a “penalty” that had to be a tax and not a penalty for the law to be “constitutional.”  They even mocked the ObamaCare mouthpiece who said what had over and over been referred to as a “penalty and not a tax” was actually now a “tax and not a penalty.”

And then the SCOTUS blinked in the face of Obama’s terrorist threat to delegitimize the Supreme Court and turn it into a political entity if it didn’t side with him.

It’s even more clear this time.  The law is a lie that was sold on the basis of a giant deception.  It’s obvious.  This law needs to be gutted or our Constitution needs to be gutted.

But Obama isn’t just a liar about ObamaCare.  And Democrats aren’t just liars who both deceive and demand to be deceive when it comes to Obama.  There is a massive spirit of deception and ungodliness when it comes to the modern Democrat Party.  As we speak, we have overwhelming distrust in Hillary Clinton as someone who is neither honest nor trustworthyEven CNN acknowledges that fact.  But we just as similarly have Democrat’s overwhelming support for her.  Because they don’t CARE about honesty or truth or trustworthiness.

These people are liars who are driven by lies.  Pure and simple.

Democrats are people whose souls SWIM in LIES.

I’ve had three amazing opportunities to examine the massive spirit of deception that characterizes the American political left in just the last few days and wrote the following articles documenting and commenting on that spirit of deception:

In the article, I made the observation in my conclusion that I inserted into the beginning of the second article above.  I’ll insert it again now to underscore my primary thesis which the ideology of progressive liberalism keeps proving to be true:

It’s really beyond amazing, now, the willingness to be deceived and to engage in self-deception the way the left is.  Everything under the sun is just an atheist-driven postmodernist and existentialist-based “social construct” with them, whether it’s the humanity of a baby in the womb or the nature of male-female relations and God’s created order or transgender identity or now even something as physically obvious as race: If Rachel Dolezal thinks of herself as black, well, she’s clearly got to be black, then.  If Bruce Jenner thinks he’s a chick, well, it would be intolerant to say he’s NOT a chick.  No matter what the hanging down parts say to the contrary because that’s only a “fact” and these people don’t give a flaming damn about facts or truth.  If I say that I’m the President of the United States, I ought to be able to kick Obama’s skinny ass out of the White House and put my feet up on the desk in the oval office, because if I think it, it’s got to be accepted as true, dontchaknow.  If I can be a woman because I say I think I’m a woman or a black woman because I say I think I’m a black woman, then why the hell shouldn’t I be the damn president because I say I think I’m the damn president???

Progressive liberalism is intrinsically fascist, and fascism is the rejection of reason.  Nazism was the rejection of reason and the embrace of raw, naked hate emotion: and that is precisely what we are seeing unleashed from the left as cities burn down and every single encounter with a black person by the police becomes the next reason to riot.  In the same manner, conservatives are persona non grata at virtually any college or university because they will be screamed down by a gauntlet of leftwing hate or worse yet banned by the universities themselves while liberal intellectuals decry the very freedom of speech itself.  And the rabid rejection of actual reality is rampant with these people: Bruce Jenner is a woman even though HE is clearly not a woman.  Rachel Dolezal is black even though anybody who isn’t blind can immediately see that she is white in spite of her black-face and her hairdresser-induced Afro.  Truth doesn’t matter; truth has nothing whatsoever to do with these people.  Progressive liberals aren’t people who listen to the truth; they are the kind of people who chant or rant or scream slogans in the faces of people who try to explain the truth to them.  Which is why the most intolerant places on earth today are the universities where leftist faculty and administrators got their foot in the door and then slammed that door shut on anyone who doesn’t think exactly like they do.

In the same way, the black leftists who are so damned fast to scream “racism” are pathologically racist themselves by their own demagoguery.  Or let me put it thus: where is the “Pan-Anglo Congress“???  Where’s the “National Association for the Advancement of Caucasian People“???  Where’s the “Congressional White Caucus“???  Where’s the “United Caucasian College Fund“???  Where are the “historically white colleges and universities” where white kids get preferential treatment for their race and receive scholarship from the aforementioned United Caucasian College Fund???  Where’s the “National White Chamber of Commerce” focused on advancing white-owned businesses???  Where are all the “historically white denominations“???  Where are all the white looters and rioters targeting black businesses for destruction as whites erupt in race riots in cities across America???  Where are the white people playing the race-game of “black bear hunting” the way black thugs do by playing their “knock-out game” of “polar bear hunting“???  If white people did what black people do on a massive scale, leftist black people would be demonizing us and slandering us and tearing their robes and pouring sackcloth and ashes over their heads as they wept and wailed in the streets.  But these same people are FINE being so racist it’s beyond unreal.

Because facts don’t matter to such people.  A demonstration and documentation of rabid hypocrisy doesn’t matter.  They are ONLY capable of seeing the speck in their brother’s eye and NEVER the giant log in their own eyes.  And every single one of these black organizations makes it official that black leftists utterly reject the teachings of Jesus and are determined to find the speck in their brother’s eye while they ignore the giant damn logs in their own.

Liberals are pathological hypocrites in so many ways that its beyond unreal.  But one of the very worst ways is their hypocrisy on free speech.  After being allowed a voice on the basis of what they claimed was an innate right to free speech, the left now demands that free speech be destroyed lest any other voice have any other right to any kind of legitimacy.

I am beyond sick at the toxic, racist and race-baiting moral filth that comes out of the pathologically hypocritical leftwing and the Democrat Party who marches to their drumbeat.

As for the third article above, on Brian Williams, the fact that liberal progressive Democrat Party propaganda machine MSNBC is actually embracing a “journalist” and “news anchor” who is now a thoroughly documented liar would be astonishing – but the very soul of the left is to be steeped in lies.  So when you really think about it, a Brian Williams in an MSNBC is a perfect fit made in hell.

I keep getting back to “truth.”  I keep going back to what Jesus said as He stood before the ultimate big government postmodernist named Governor Pontius Pilate:

Jesus answered, “My Kingdom is not an earthly kingdom. If it were, my followers would fight to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish leaders. But my Kingdom is not of this world.”

Pilate said, “So you are a king?” Jesus responded, “You say I am a king. Actually, I was born and came into the world to testify to the truth. All who love the truth recognize that what I say is true.”

“What is truth?” Pilate asked. — John 18:36-38a

And Governor Pilate turned his back on the One who had come into the world as truth’s very living embodiment.

Liberals are self-deceived deceivers who will quote and allow to be quoted the Bible ONLY when it serves their self-serving cause to erect a massive Government that usurps God as Savior and as Lord.  A Barack Obama or a Hillary Clinton will twist the Bible and say that we ought to care about the poor and therefore somehow we ought to have a giant socialist and frankly fascist omnipotent human Government with the raw naked power to impose “economic justice” by stealing from one group of people to give to whatever people that this wicked Government decides to empower of out its own self-centered cynical political interests.  Jesus never ONCE called upon the rise of human government to help the poor.  We have the following account that demonstrates what I am saying:

Jesus saw the huge crowd as he stepped from the boat, and he had compassion on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.  Late in the afternoon his disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late.  Send the people away so that they can go to the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves something to eat.”

But Jesus said, “You feed them.”

“With what?” they asked. “We’d have to work for months to earn enough money to buy food for all these people!”

“How much bread do you have?” he asked. “Go and find out.” They came back and reported, “We have five loaves of bread and two fish.”Then Jesus told the disciples to have the people sit down in groups on the green grass.  — Mark 6:34-39

Jesus does NOT tell the disciples to go to King Herod or to Governor Pilate to create a welfare state program.  And in fact the ONLY place in the Bible where there is any direction to create such a government program is in the religious theocracy of the Old Testament that makes every Democrat begin rabidly frothing at the mouth because they HATE God and His ways and would NEVER tolerate what God actually commanded them to do.  Tell you what: you welfare system provided for in the Bible?  Fine; let’s have the theocracy that it is BASED ON, too.  And let’s begin by putting to death according to that Old Testament law every single Democrat who voted for abortion or for homosexual marriage, and every single judge or lawyer who rule or advocated for these, just for starters.  And maybe we’ll get somewhere.  Because while I’m personally FINE with the Bible, the nature of Democrats is to take the one little tiny part of it that they want out of any legitimate context and then urinate on and defecate upon the rest of it.  And their hypocrisy and false piety ought to make you sick.  The truth is that Democrats have spent $22 TRILLION of other people’s money in their cynical and euphemistically titled “war on poverty” and they have parasitically leached the overwhelming majority of it to their political advantage and to benefit their political benefactors.  That’s three times the money that has been spent on every single war in America from the Revolution to today COMBINED.  That’s nearly $70,000 for every single man, woman and child in America.  While the actual poor have benefited little or not at all from it.  Because the “war on poverty” is and has always been a Democrat Party exploitation machine by people who couldn’t give less of a flying DAMN about the poor in America.

And even within that system of biblical theocracy the Bible teaches that powerful human government is a bad thing:

5and they said to him, “Behold, you have grown old, and your sons do not walk in your ways. Now appoint a king for us to judge us like all the nations.” 6But the thing was displeasing in the sight of Samuel when they said, “Give us a king to judge us.” And Samuel prayed to the LORD. 7The LORD said to Samuel, “Listen to the voice of the people in regard to all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me from being king over them. 8“Like all the deeds which they have done since the day that I brought them up from Egypt even to this day—in that they have forsaken Me and served other gods—so they are doing to you also. 9“Now then, listen to their voice; however, you shall solemnly warn them and tell them of the procedure of the king who will reign over them.”

Warning concerning a King

10So Samuel spoke all the words of the LORD to the people who had asked of him a king. 11He said, “This will be the procedure of the king who will reign over you: he will take your sons and place them for himself in his chariots and among his horsemen and they will run before his chariots. 12“He will appoint for himself commanders of thousands and of fifties, and some to do his plowing and to reap his harvest and to make his weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. 13“He will also take your daughters for perfumers and cooks and bakers. 14“He will take the best of your fields and your vineyards and your olive groves and give them to his servants. 15“He will take a tenth of your seed and of your vineyards and give to his officers and to his servants. 16“He will also take your male servants and your female servants and your best young men and your donkeys and use them for his work. 17“He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his servants. 18“Then you will cry out in that day because of your king whom you have chosen for yourselves, but the LORD will not answer you in that day.”

19Nevertheless, the people refused to listen to the voice of Samuel, and they said, “No, but there shall be a king over us, 20that we also may be like all the nations, that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles.” 21Now after Samuel had heard all the words of the people, he repeated them in the LORD’S hearing. 22The LORD said to Samuel, “Listen to their voice and appoint them a king.” So Samuel said to the men of Israel, “Go every man to his city.” — 1 Samuel 8:5-22

And now we’ve got Obama to finish taking what hasn’t already been taken like the demonic locust king that he is.

But who or what did Jesus actually empower to help the poor?  His disciples.  And His Church that Democrats hate and rabidly despise as they have done everything they could to undermine and put down and weaken and trample upon.  Because they are evil and they hate the truth.

In the same manner, we just had another mass shooting and what did the fascist Obama immediately leap to?  Seizing all guns and banning weapons.  Jesus talked a great deal about “peace,” but JESUS NEVER ONCE SO MUCH AS SUGGESTED SEIZING ALL WEAPONS.  That spirit had NOTHING to do with the spirit of Jesus.  In fact, Jesus offered this:

Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you out to preach the Good News and you did not have money, a traveler’s bag, or an extra pair of sandals, did you need anything?” “No,” they replied.  “But now,” he said, “take your money and a traveler’s bag. And if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one!  For the time has come for this prophecy about me to be fulfilled: ‘He was counted among the rebels.’ Yes, everything written about me by the prophets will come true.” — Luke 22:35-37

Jesus did NOT stand for enabling the wicked government to come and confiscate our weapons.  He in fact did the exact opposite!  Do you want to know whose spirit Obama is following in his desire to take away our weapons and leave us unable to defend ourselves?  It is the rabid fascist socialist spirit of Führer Adolf Hitler.  It is the rabid communist socialist dictator rule of Joseph Stalin.  THEY seized all the guns so no one could rise against their wickedness and fight back.  Our founding fathers believed exactly OPPOSITE to Hitler and Stalin and Obama.  They saw the 2nd Amendment as a bulwark against tyranny; where only the State had access to weapons and so the people were helpless before the rise of any tyrant state.  The founding fathers wanted to protect us from tyrants like Obama, who seek to impose a giant government upon us against our will, so that they would NEVER leave the people without the means to defend themselves, their families and their property from such a government.  And I believe that given what Obama has done to “fundamentally transform the United States of America,” that we see the wisdom of the founding fathers from that very 2nd Amendment as we have never seen it before.

Jesus was righteous and wise the same way that Obama is wicked and a fool.  Jesus knew that criminalizing all the weapons would only ensure that criminals – and a criminal human Government – had all the weapons.  And that the nature of the world apart from Him is violence.  Jesus understood that the founding father’s vision of a nation whose government feared its people was far wiser and far more moral than the one Obama envisions in which the people must live in fear of their government.

Democrats demonize Republicans all the damn time for the gun violence.  But they should do all their most rabid screaming and finger-pointing standing in front of a mirror.  Because when Barack Obama’s stench filled the White House and while Nancy Pelosi’s stench filled the House of Representatives and Harry Reid’s stench filled the Senate and Democrats ran the ENTIRE GOVERNMENT, they did NOTHING.  Because to be a Democrat today means being the worst hypocrite on planet earth, bar none.

Democrats are a rabidly religious people, just like their very-shortly-coming future god, the Antichrist, whom the Bible describes as “honor[ing] a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his ancestors” (Daniel 11:38).  And that has DEMOCRAT written all over it.  These are people who worship the STATE that will build those fortresses.  And Democrats who want to seize your guns and abolish your God-given constitutional right to defend yourselves and your property from evil want to impose their god on you.  I say that because as Christians we want to be radically dependent upon our God, the God of the Bible.  And Democrats want the same thing; they want to be radically dependent upon THEIR god, the State.  But they are FASCISTS in their worship such that they want us ALL to be radically helpless such that all we have to pray to is their god the all-powerful State.  You cannot have the right that the God of the Bible gave you to protect yourself; NO!!!  You must bow down to THEIR god.  And everyone who has a weapon to defend themselves, their families and their property with is a blasphemer to Democrats; because they are declaring that they do not WANT to be radically dependent on the State for their salvation.

Obama lusts for more abortions on top of the sixty million his party already is coated in the blood of.  The same Democrats who weep and wail over Vietnam have murdered more than a thousand innocent babies for every single American serviceman who was killed in that war.  And they are just getting started in their hatred of the human spirit.  But read the words of Psalm 139 and see for yourself the innate vile wickedness of the party of hate that the Democrat Party has become:

Psalm 139:13-18 New Living Translation (NLT)

13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
    and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 Thank You for making me so wonderfully complex!
    Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
    as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
16 You saw me before I was born.
    Every day of my life was recorded in Your book.
Every moment was laid out
    before a single day had passed.

17 How precious are Your thoughts about me,[a] O God.
    They cannot be numbered!
18 I can’t even count them;
    they outnumber the grains of sand!
And when I wake up,
    You are still with me!

Luke 1:39-41 records the following event:

A few days later Mary hurried to the hill country of Judea, to the town where Zechariah lived. She entered the house and greeted Elizabeth. At the sound of Mary’s greeting, Elizabeth’s child leaped within her, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.

The monstrous Democrat Party’s “final solution” to this truth of the divine dignity of human life in the womb is the same as King Herod’s: to murder babies.  Mary was a young teenage girl when she became pregnant with the baby Jesus.  And Elizabeth’s baby John was leaping for joy in his mother’s womb.  And Democrats believe it would have been a GOOD THING for both women to murder the Savior of the human race and the herald God sent to announce Him because they come from the Party of Lucifer.

In the same way Democrats worship the perversion of marriage and the homosexuality that perverts the very foundation of God’s creative order.  And that is why as the Party of Lucifer it was their demonic-inspired will to bring the full wrath of God against the United States of America that once took pride in being “One Nation under God” before we depraved it to the “gay pride” of homosexual sodomy.  Find this truth in Romans chapter one:

Unbelief and Its Consequences

18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. 21For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.

24Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

28And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them. — Romans 1:18-31

And that everything Obama has done in his socialism and his fascism and his totalitarianism and his love of abortion and his worship of homosexuality has driven the world further and further and further from the Prince of Peace.

Everything the left stands for is irredeemably wicked and evil.  EVERYTHING.  And they cynically pervert and warp even good and legitimate causes to their wicked agenda.

And that is why Democrats – which stands for “DEMOnic bureauCRATS” – want a proven liar to anchor their “news” station.  Because you can always count on a liar to lie and Democrats wouldn’t have it any other way.

A front page article from USA Today captures the crisis of the once-great-because-it -was-once-godly United States of America:

Mixing religion and politics: Do today’s ‘nones’ have it?
If Americans skew less Christian, the GOP faces challenge
Rick Hampson, USA TODAY 5:48 p.m. EDT June 17, 2015

If the U.S. population is becoming less and less Christian, why does the Republican presidential campaign sometimes feel like a revival meeting?

Last month, Jeb Bush became the latest GOP hopeful to make the pilgrimage to Liberty University, the world’s largest evangelical Christian school, where Texas Sen. Ted Cruz announced his candidacy in March.

And this week, a baker’s dozen of declared and potential Republican presidential candidates address the Faith & Freedom Coalition, which is trying to mobilize the conservative evangelical vote.

Timothy Head, the coalition director, says he didn’t even have to invite candidates to the Road to Majority Conference in Washington: “People contacted us — ‘Can I come?”’

Yet just last month the Pew Research Center released a survey showing that the percentage of Americans who call themselves Christian has been going down a point a year, to 70.6% in 2014.

Meanwhile, those who report no religious affiliation — “nones” — are increasing their share of the body politic.

And Americans’ confidence in organized religion, which has fallen dramatically over the past four decades, hit an all-time low this year of 42%, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. Only about half of Protestants or Roman Catholics say they have a great deal of confidence in the church and organized religion.

It’s a remarkable development in what President Harry Truman and many others (including some non-believers) have described as “a Christian nation.” […]

The article continues, but you get the idea: the more this nation turns its collectivist back on Jesus Christ and pisses on Him as Democrats demanded be taxpayer funded in the form of “Piss Christ”, the more Democrat (the modern term for “demon-possessed”) this nation becomes.  Because the Democrat Party represents the spirit of perversion and the perversion of once godly America.

It was a Democrat President (among others) who called America “a Christian nation.”  But this awful party is no longer that party.  Now it is the party in which an Obama boasts that it is a “Muslim nation.”

The United States of America is going to go down harder and more agonizingly than any nation in the history of the world.  We look at the wickedness of other countries such as Russia and China and the Islamic republics that are sending so much hate and violence out.  But these nations are described in the Bible as being present in the last days while America is NOT.  And the reason is now clear: because we were a nation that once uniquely and powerfully turned to the LORD, the God of the Bible, and now we have spat in His eye.

And our descent into hell is going to be awful as God “gives us over” to our depraved mind and its full consequences (Romans 1:24).

Barack Obama lied to us in every way imaginable.  After demonizing George W. Bush and Republicans and falsely claiming that our very attempt to fight a war on terror was the cause of the war, Obama promised the American people that he had the solution to end the war on terror.  But history proves he lied to us.  Terrorist violence SOARED in 2014.  That’s the current report.  But if you look a year ago you’ll see that the terrorism that has soared this year from last year soared last year from the year before as Obama’s policy has completely collapsed.  In fact, terrorism has skyrocketed virtually every damn YEAR under Obama’s lies and his political cowardice.  Obama claimed he was the president who ended wars [that George Bush started, of course].  But fully three out of every four dead Americans in Afghanistan was the result of none other than Barack Obama and HIS policies.  As we’ve already watched Iraq completely collapsed from the safe, stable, self-reliant Iraq that George W. Bush left Obama with to a bloodbath that has become the puppet-state of our enemy Iran.

If I might come back to end where I began, with the Supreme Court and ObamaCare, I have little confidence in the Supreme Court – its integrity or its not being a political body – because we live in the last days.  In Habakkuk 1:4, the prophet railed:

The law has become paralyzed, and there is no justice in the courts.  The wicked far outnumber the righteous, so that justice has become perverted.

And given our gay marriage rulings, “perverted” is a VERY good word to describe what “justice” has become today.

In verse five of Habakkuk chapter one, God said watch, wonder, marvel!  For He would bring about judgment to judge a nation that perversely saw itself as being good rather than evil.  And He foretold to Habakkuk that He would act by bringing the vicious Babylonians.  Just as today the same God of all Creation is bringing the SAME sort of people from the SAME part of the world who are doing the SAME things all over again as the days of the Old Testament come back to lethal life as we return to the days of judgment.

Why Do Big-Government Liberals And No-Government Anarchists Riot At the Same Riots? They Want The SAME Thing

September 9, 2014

I had a realization of why big-government liberals and no-government anarchists would be in the same camp (as they clearly are).

Liberals have been calling Republicans “anarchists.”  It doesn’t matter that we very clearly AREN’T.  I mean, which party supports a federal government going to war???  Is it the damn DEMOCRAT Party?  Nope.  Which party represents law and order and which one has been sending rioters to Ferguson, Missouri to protest a cop having the right to shoot a thug strong arm robber?  Yep, it sure aint Republicans.

The “Republican anarchists” crap is a myth from the Party of LIARS.

Republicans are all for government.  They just want that government to be limited to the proper role as described in the Constitution.  We’re the ones who favor a strong military because a strong military is one of the relative FEW things that the Constitution approves of federal government doing in “providing for a common defense.”  We know that a strong military serves as a deterrent to foreign aggression such as we are beginning to experience now at the hands of Russia, China, North Korea and Islamic State.  We know that maintaining a strong military generates allies – the kind we are losing by the SCORES right now under Obama’s immoral policies.  We also support a strong police to deter crime.  And as our ability to arrest, prosecute and incarcerate and put to death criminals deteriorates, guess what happens every time: a skyrocketing surge in crime.  We also as Republican conservatives believe that government should be strong enough to maintain a level playing field but weak enough to not be able to tip the scale to favor one chosen side over the other.  The result of that policy would be lower taxes, less regulation, less bureaucracy and more JOBS.

We want government.  We just don’t want the State that replaces God and thinks it has the right to dominate everything.  Because our founding fathers actually fought a damn REVOLUTION to separate themselves from a British state that was NOWHERE NEAR as thuggish and dictatorial as the one we’re in now.

But here liberals are, labeling Republicans as “anarchists.”

Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader, one of THE most important Democrats in the nation, called Republicans “anarchists.”

Elizabeth Warren, the woman the left wants to run for president for 2016, called Republicans “anarchists.”

Let’s take a moment to examine the leftists own argument as they try to make a nonexistent connection between Republicans and anarchists:

In 2011, Timothy Egan wrote a blog post for the Opinionator, the New York Times’ regular online opinion mill. He described his experience at the 1999 World Trade Organization summit in Seattle. He described the window-smashing, understood by anarchists as being purely symbolic and a venting of frustration against multinational corporations who exploit workers at home and abroad, as a manifestation of the nihilistic spirit of all anarchists everywhere. “[It] seems to have found a home: in the Republican Party,” he wrote.

Yeah, let’s go back to Ferguson, Missouri.  WHO is smashing windows and whining about the exploitation of workers???  I mean, seriously, you actually think it’s REPUBLICANS???

Let’s replay who was involved in those Seattle World Trade Organization riots:

Organizations and planning[edit]

Planning for the demonstrations began months in advance and included local, national, and international organizations. Among the most notable participants were national and international NGOs (especially those concerned with labor issues, the environment, and consumer protection), labor unions (including the AFL-CIO), student groups, religiously-based groups (Jubilee 2000), and anarchists (some of whom formed a black bloc).[2]

The coalition was loose, with some opponent groups focused on opposition to WTO policies (especially those related to free trade), with others motivated by pro-labor, anti-capitalist, or environmental agendas. Many of the NGOs represented at the protests came with credentials to participate in the official meetings, while also planning various educational and press events. The AFL-CIO, with cooperation from its member unions, organized a large permitted rally and march from Seattle Center to downtown.

However, others were more interested in taking direct action including both civil disobedience and acts of vandalism and property destruction to disrupt the meeting. Several groups were loosely organized together under the Direct Action Network (DAN), with a plan to disrupt the meetings by blocking streets and intersections downtown to prevent delegates from reaching the Washington State Convention and Trade Center, where the meeting was to be held. The black bloc was not affiliated with DAN, but was responding to the original call for autonomous resistance actions on November 30 issued by People’s Global Action.[3]

Of the different coalitions that aligned in protest were the “teamsters and turtles” – a blue-green alliance consisting of the teamsters (trade unions) and environmentalists.[4][5][6]

Corporations targeted[edit]

Certain activists, including locals and an additional group of anarchists from Eugene, Oregon[7] (where they had gathered that summer for a music festival),[8] advocated more confrontational tactics, and planned and conducted deliberate vandalism of corporate properties in downtown Seattle. In a subsequent communique, they listed the particular corporations targeted, which they considered to have committed corporate crime.

EVERY SINGLE THING mentioned in those paragraphs above – every single group and every single tactic – are leftist and come from the LEFT.  EVERY SINGLE ONE.

Republicans favor laissez-fair free trade and free markets.  We’re also told every damn day that WE’RE the pro-big corporation party.  REPUBLICANS WERE NOT RIOTING.  LIBERALS WERE.

But being liberals, they are pathologically dishonest lying hypocrites without shame, without honesty, without integrity, without virtue and without honor.

So why would anarchists who hate government and liberals who love government be completely on the same side?

Because they both want the same damn thing, that’s why.

I’ve been pointing this out over and over again on my blog.  Big government liberalism is crony capitalism, where liberals get to decide who wins and who loses, who gets taxed and who gets tax breaks, who gets their wealth seized and who receives the redistribution of wealth, who gets fat union contracts and benefits and who gets stuck with the bill for those fat union contracts and benefits.

Liberalism is nothing short of a massive plan to benefit the rich – THEIR rich, mind you – by stealing from everybody else.

Hollywood liberals are THE most likely people to say taxes ought to be higher on everybody while demanding and receiving from the massive Democrat majority in California special tax breaks.  It’s just who these hypocrites are, pure and simple.

In my own incredibly dysfunctional city, I have been crushed and saddened by the election of liberals to dominate the city council.  I wanted to cry the last election.

So I’m talking with the owner of my gym.  She points out that the city nailed her with a big fee to put rocks in the front of her gym.  She was able to document that the police department didn’t have those rocks in the same sort of area; the fire department didn’t have rocks in the same exact sort of area.  It didn’t matter, the liberals of the city council said; it was “the cost of doing business.”  We get to decide who wins and who loses, and guess what: we decided that you lose.

So a big developer comes in and wants to build a complex.  And anchoring the complex is a huge gym.  And guess what: the same damn city council that nickeled and dimed the small biz gym is all of a sudden waving huge development and impact costs for this developer.

And the small gym owner is pointing out to me, “Who is going to get stuck with those costs?  I am.  And meanwhile they wouldn’t cut me so much as ONE INCH of slack over even the most TRIVIAL costs.”

Ah, liberalism.  Where whites lose and minorities win.  Where men lose and women win.  Where Christians lose and homosexuals win.  Democrats pit races, classes, genders and ages and win a majority by 50 percent plus ONE.  And then it’s “and punish our enemies and reward our friends” time:

Well, what does that have in common wit h anarchists and no government at ALL?

Because the same people who choose who wins and who loses with big government and crush and oppress the rest of us are the same people who would hire thugs and crush the rest of us if there were no government at all, that’s what.  What does the law mean?  Well, we’ve seen that now under Obama and his lawthug Eric Holder.  We’ve SEEN it in the liberals on the Supreme Court: it means whatever the left SAYS it means.

You’ve got your Western movie plot: a bunch of small government conservatives are living in a small town running their little businesses and all of a sudden some rich and powerful slimebag comes in with all his hired guns and seizes control and runs everybody who doesn’t knuckle under to him out.  And to the extent that there’s any law, they BUY the law and its THEM wearing the damn badges.  That’s what these people do when there’s no government and that’s what these people do when government gets huge enough to pick all the winners and the losers.

Big-government liberals or no-government anarchists: either way, it’s just a different means toward the same end, it’s just a different way to give total power to the SAME people, is all.

A Recent Update On The Soon-To-Be-In-Your-Neighborhood Mark Of The Beast (Revelation 13:16-17 Is Coming)

August 22, 2014

And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. — Revelation 13:16-17

Venezuela proposes fingerprinting grocery shoppers
By HANNAH DREIER
8/22/2014

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuelans could soon have to scan their fingerprints to buy bread.

President Nicolas Maduro says a mandatory fingerprinting system is being implemented at grocery stores to combat food shortages by keeping people from buying too much of a single item. He calls it an “anti-fraud system” like the fingerprint scan the country uses for voting.

In announcing the plan late Wednesday, Maduro did not say when the system would take effect, but other administration officials suggested it could be in place by December or January.

The move was met with skepticism. Critics said the new system is tantamount to rationing and constitutes a breach of privacy. Others simply wondered if anything short of a systemic overhaul of the economy could help the socialist South American country’s chronically bare shelves.

Venezuela has been grappling with shortages of basic goods like cooking oil and flour for more than a year. In the spring, the administration tried out a similar system in government-run supermarkets on a voluntary basis.

Rigid currency controls and a shortage of U.S. dollars have made it increasingly difficult for Venezuelans to find imported products. Price controls don’t help either, with producers complaining that some goods are priced too low to make a profit and justify production.

The administration blames the shortages both on companies speculating with an eye toward future profits and on black market vendors who buy groceries at subsidized prices and illegally resell them for several times the amount.

In his announcement, Maduro floated the possibility of easing some of the country’s price controls, though he did not provide specifics. Defenders of the controls say that by keeping prices for basic goods artificially low, Venezuela helps the nation’s poor lead more dignified lives.

Last week, Venezuela began closing its border with Colombia at night in an effort to cut down on smuggling, which Maduro has said diverts nearly half of Venezuela’s food.

As of January, more than a quarter of basic staples were out of stock in Venezuelan stores, according to the central bank’s scarcity index.

As always, it starts with the leftists.  Those who worship human Government and the State in place of God are the source of evil that pushes mankind closer and closer and closer toward the ultimate big government and the ultimate political messiah that they keep preferring over God and His Kingdom.

And so we have here “the fruits of liberalism,” the chronic food shortages provided by socialism.

Socialism is a completely failed worldview – just like all the OTHER leftist “-isms” such as postmodernism, existentialism, communism, fascism, feminism, Marxism, etc. ad nauseam.  It makes people turn to the Government – to arrogant bureaucrats who stand in the place of God as your Savior – for provision rather than working themselves like decent people.  It discourages hard work because it kills any way for one to be allowed to profit from working harder.

And thus food shortages.  Which then – with socialism having failed – requires more socialism to solve the problem.  So we move from socialism creating food shortages to socialism being further  used to ration the remaining food.

Evil man will NEVER turn to God.  If Government doesn’t work, obviously the only solution is still MORE Government.  Always.  Never God.  Never His ways.  Never.

And being evil, thus the stratagem to bring us closer and closer and closer to the Mark of the Beast.  Because the Antichrist and the Mark of the Beast is ultimately what the left yearns for in this world.

The Mark of the Beast is a global economic and political system that will have profoundly spiritual implications.  In choosing it, people will be officially and permanently rejecting God and confirming that they are Government’s citizens rather than God’s people.  And they will be damned to hell forever and ever the moment they take it on their right hand or on their forehead.

What is fascinating is that the RFD chips that already are ready for implementation RIGHT NOW are going to go in the forehead (just look over the scanner) or the hand (just pass your hand through the scanner).

Coin and paper money is already largely gone with the overwhelming majority of transactions being digital.

With such money gone, and digital money all that remains to buy and sell, it ought to be obvious to anyone who isn’t a fool that all that remains is for a political system to seize control of it to exploit it to their ends.

With the mark, everything you do will be automatically tracked and monitored by the Government.  Without the mark, no one will be able to buy or sell ANYTHING.  You will be shut out of the economy.  You won’t even be able to barter.  Because if those who have taken the mark buy more food to trade you for some good you have, the Government will automatically know that someone has purchased more food than their “quota” and investigators will come to demand an official account.

We can see it happening and we can know that it’s coming.

God’s people have known about this for 2,000 years.  But the secular humanists, the liberals, the socialists, the Islamic fascists – all who worship a Government State in place of the God of the Bible and His Word – will never see it.  And so they will fall right into the most wicked scheme in the world even though that wicked scheme has been described for millennia.

It’s really quite amazing when you think about the blindness, the stupidity and the evil of wicked man.

Just In Case You Want To Know Why Progressive Liberalism Is In Bed With Islamic Fascism. Because Basically, They’re One And The Same

May 15, 2014

It’s really an amazing thing to see: the love affair between Islamic fascist jihadism and the progressive left.

I long ago documented Barack Obama’s LONG association with radical Islam.

You start throwing out radical names of dangerous people that Obama has been associated with and a pattern emerges:  the aforementioned Davis, Jeremiah Wright (see also here and here and here), Khalid al-Mansour (more here), Rashid Khalidi, Tony Rezko, Bill Ayers.  And you realize that Obama has been steeped in a profoundly Marxist worldview.  Obama isn’t stupid; he knows that the American people don’t want that ideology.  But no one can conceal his worldview completely.  Critical observers saw it clearly.

Khalid al-Monsour and Rashid Khalidi are bad, bad news if you AREN’T a radical Muslim who is very, very comfortable with terrorism in the name of your ideology.

And the left’s intimate love-affair with radical extremist (violent as hell) Islam run deep, deep, DEEP.  Just recently the uberleftist Brandeis University “disinvited” a female Muslim who has refused to shut her mouth about the viciousness of Islam toward women.  And the soon-to-open 9/11 Museum is taking a lot of flack because it has words such as “Islamic extremism” and “jihadism.”

This brave Muslim woman wanted to tell the truth about what is going on in the lives of these poor, oppressed women who are forced to undergo genital mutilation, endure rapes without having the right to report crimes against them, not be able to drive, not able to even leave the house without an escort, wear a giant tent called a hijab that covers everything but their veiled eyes and the tips of their feet, etc.

And how DARE she do that!  It’s an OUTRAGE!  And liberal Democrats are FURIOUS.  Furious enough to attack her for the cardinal sin of being “intolerant.”

Hint: it sure aint Republicans getting behind these Muslim whitewashers of truth and reason.

So there’s a good question for discussion: why the hell would liberals (well, PROGRESSIVE liberals given the fact that these cockroaches have nothing to do with ACTUAL liberalism) would be such ardent supporters of the people who quite possibly despise them even more than I do.

The answer is actually very simple.

The most fundamental reason is the fact that progressive “liberalism” is based on racism and the fabrication of various racial minority groups into a voting bloc.  Basically, if you recognize and affirm what a truly inferior and pathetic human being you are, and therefore see yourself as a victim of everybody and everything you disagree with, you too can be a “liberal.”

And radical Muslims – yes, terrorists like Osama bin Laden – very much and in the exact same “liberal” tradition view themselves as “victims” of the same “capitalism” and “Christendom” that progressive liberals so ardently despise.

Given that “the enemy of my enemy is my friend,” and given that jihadist Islamic fascists hate most of the same things that progressive liberals hate, they are bedfellows.  Even though these Muslim fanatics would love nothing more than to slit the throats of every progressive liberal on the planet when they’re through using them as useful idiots and ideological human shields.

It boils down to this: if you’re a black Muslim in America today, which party and which president do you vote for?

I’ll leave it to Nation of Islam founder Lois Farrakhan to put that one to bed for me:

“You are the instruments that God is gonna use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn’t care anything about. That’s a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”

Oh, yes, when Obama campaign chief David Axelrod called Obama “black Jesus” and when liberal Newsweek editor Evan Thomas said Obama is “sort of God” and when liberal idiot Spike Lee said you can divide history into BB before Barack and AB After Barack; when Obama literally has such a God-complex that he made the whole nation and the flag which symbolizes that nation about himself, when senior Obama White House advisors literally go to churches to preach Obama; and most definitely when liberals are selling “artwork” that pictures Obama’s face and phrases such as “prophecy fulfilled,” they are mouthing Louis Farrakhan.

But you’ve got to ask, why do liberals love Islamic radicals so much?  Why are the two ideologies bedfellows?

Because they’ve got an awful (and I emphasize these people are truly “awful”) lot in common besides the fact that Muslims tend to be racial minorities and therefore are held sacrosanct by the Democrat Party no matter how utterly wicked and violent and rabid they are.  Not that being wicked, violent or rabid in any way, shape or form is a barrier to being a Democrat, mind you.

Other than the racial minority thing, which is frankly enough to solidify the connection between liberal Democrats and the radical jihadist fascist left all by its lonesome, Islamic fascist have three other things that progressive liberals hold dear:

The second thing that binds Islamic fascists and liberalism together is a love of fascism and the exaltation of the State as God.  That is a cornerstone of both fanatic Islam and fanatic progressive liberalism alike.

Muslims refer to the concept of Khilafah.  Basically, think of the world as one Muslim Caliphate.  And you have the dream of Muslims.

Liberals want the same damn thing: they want one-world government.  They want a mega-socialist all-powerful totalitarian State.

Now, progressive liberals might argue that Muslims want to rule in the name of God and liberals want a godlike all-powerful State that has absolute authority over human lives entirely apart from God.  But in point of fact, the two become the same thing.

In North Korea, dictator Kim Il-Sung, then Kim Jong Il and now Kim Jong-Un are worshiped as GOD in their atheist state.

In the atheist state of the People’s Republic of China, Chairman Mao was likewise worshiped as GOD.

Leftists cannot help themselves.  In order to BE a leftist, you have to have the insanely arrogant belief that YOU should be the one to pull or push up or down all the levers and YOU should be the one who pushes or doesn’t push all of the buttons of state.  Liberals don’t believe that individuals ought to have the freedom to govern their own lives and their own affairs; rather, they feel that THEY ought to have the power to FORCE individuals to comply with what THEY want.  Or else face the power of their State.

The most rabid Muslims really aren’t very different.

Put another way, both the Ayatollah AND Barack Obama love to dictate government by use of “executive orders.”  See here and here for just two of myriad examples of our Thug-in-Chief’s abuse of power, of the separation of powers and of the Constitution.

The third thing both the progressive liberal left and radical Islamic jihadist fascism have in common is an utter contempt for and hostility to Christianity.

Piss Christ was the result of a liberal “artist” being paid government dollars from a VERY liberal National Endowment for the Arts program created by DEMOCRATS.

I wonder how Democrats would have voted for “Piss Mohammed.”  I think all reasonable people know what these cowardly liberal cockroaches would have done.

Progressive liberal Democrats are doing everything they possibly can to advance an anti-Christian agenda to overthrow Judeo-Christianity as the moral framework for society.  Because they think they’ve got a far better framework.

The fourth thing that progressive liberal Democrats and their jihadist Islamic fascists both have in common is a rabid intolerance of free speech.  You need to understand why both come to the same exact perspective from opposite ends of the spectrum: for Muslims, the suppression of free speech and individual freedom and liberty is all about the fact that in Islam the individual is nothing and the Islamic State is EVERYTHING.  And thus you have the right to shut up in Islam if you disagree with Sharia or the Khilafah Caliphate State.  In progressive liberalism, the suppression of free speech and individual liberty is based on the opposite of Christianity: in Christianity, you are created in the image of God and you have God-given rights, including the right of free speech and individual freedom and liberty.  Under progressive liberalism, you are nothing but DNA (i.e. chemicals) conditioned by your environment; you have no free will; you are merely a herd animal.  And liberals view themselves as your masters who reserve for themselves the right to make all of your herd decisions for you.  And so under progressive liberalism, you have the right to shut up if you disagree with political correctness or the Socialist Welfare State.

What the left has done is as fascinating as it is dishonest and hypocritical.  Think of 1978 and the ACLU-backed ruling that Nazis had the right to march through a town (Skokie, Illinois) that was heavily populated by Jewish death camp survivors.

This was, of course, racism at its worst and its ugliest, given the history of 6 million Jews murdered like insects during the Nazi Holocaust.

But, under the guise of liberalism, free speech was so sacred, so sacrosanct, that even the very ugliest speech needed to be protected at all possible costs.

Now, fast forward a few decades to Donald Sterling, a man whom the left wants to strip a one-billion-PLUS dollar franchise from against his will because he said a bunch of ugly racist garbage over what he thought was a private phone line.

Let me explain what happened: liberals took advantage of free speech to get their feet and their ideology in the door and then they slammed that door shut.  They don’t need it any more.  You have the right to shut up.  Or lose your property (like Donald Sterling) or your career (like the Mozilla CEO who committed the unpardonable sin of believing he had the freedom to donate to a political cause liberals don’t support).

Don’t tell me that the precedent of going after a racist like Sterling won’t soon be exploited to go after Christians like me who believe God rather than Obama when it comes to homosexual marriage.

Think of the bastions of liberal progressivism otherwise known as “universities.”  Think of what recently came out of a liberal progressive student who basically has the same job that Obama had when HE was a liberal fanatic at Harvard:

Sandra Korn, a senior who writes a column for the Harvard Crimson newspaper, thinks radical leftism is the only permissible political philosophy, and the First Amendment only hinders colleges from brainwashing students with her viewpoint.

Stop and think (liberals being incapable of either being that as fascists they love to rush to exploit the emergency of “crisis”): liberals love the idea of destroying a Donald Sterling because, racist (LIBERAL) roach that he is, they know that they can exploit the legitimate moral revulsion against racism to “progressively” demonize OTHER areas – such as opposition to homosexuality or opposition to big government, or support for voter IDs, etc., etc. ad nauseum – to their heart’s content.

Progressive liberals, if anything, are even MORE rabidly intolerant against free speech than the most fanatic Islamic fascists.

So you see, on numerous fronts, to be a radical terrorist Muslim jihadist fascist is to be a radical totalitarian liberal progressive fascist.  The two have the same basic worldview and it is therefore no surprise at all that one protects the other.

If you get in the way of the machinery of either one, they will crush you.

 

 

 

Just In Case You Thought Liberals Gave A Damn About Workers Having Health Care: ObamaCare Call Center Denies Employee Health Benefits

July 29, 2013

What do liberals really want?

If you listen to them, they’ll blather on about how they want workers to have better wages, better health care, blah blah blah.

It’s not that these are bad things: I want workers to have Ferraris and palatial estates and have supermodels for wives.  So there you have it – I’m more caring and compassionate than any liberal, aren’t I?

The question is, when push comes to shove, am I willing to pay for all that crap?  No.  I’m not willing to.  Just like liberals – when it’s actually THEIR money rather than “other peoples’ money” – aren’t willing to pay for any of the crap they blather on about.

Obamacare Call Center Will Not Offer Health-Care Benefits to Employees
By  Eliana Johnson
July 26, 2013 6:27 PM

In order to ensure Americans understand how to access the benefits available to them when many provisions of the Affordable Care Act go online October 1, the Obama administration announced last month that it is setting up a call center that will be accessible to Americans 24 hours a day.

One branch of that call center will be located in California’s Contra Costa County, where, reportedly, 7,000 people applied for the 204 jobs. According to the Contra Costa Times, however, “about half the jobs are part-time, with no health benefits — a stinging disappointment to workers and local politicians who believed the positions would be full-time.” The county supervisor, Karen Mitchoff, called the hiring process “a comedy of errors” and said she “never dreamed [the jobs] would be part-time.”

The Times indicates that a job posting advertised all of the jobs as full-time, and one call center employee, who said no reason for the apparent change was provided, told the paper, ”It reminded me of that George Clooney movie where he goes around the country firing people [Up in the Air]. The woman said, ‘I know you were led to believe you would be full-time, but things have changed. . . . You are actually ‘part-time intermittent.’”

The Contra Costa employees are currently in training, and the call center — one of three based in California — is set to go live on October 1.

In the same way, Obama constantly blathers on and on about wealth inequality and blah blah blah.  But it is UNDER HIS REGIME that the rich (because Obama needs those filthy rich liberals) have gotten more rich than ever before and the poor have become more poor than ever before.  The fact of the matter is that the poor and middle class are earning $2,718 less a year under Obama than they were under Bush.  And Obama acts as if he just descended from heaven and is seeing the affliction of the poor rather than being the rat bastard sonofabitch who cased it.

Liberals are hypocrites.  They are liars without shame, without honor and without virtue.  They couldn’t give less of a damn about the poor.  ALL THEY WANT IS MORE GOVERNMENT POWER AND MORE ABILITY TO CONTROL PEOPLES’ LIVES AND MORE POWER TO DECIDE WHO WINS AND WHO LOSES SO THEY CAN PUNISH THOSE THEY WANT TO PUNISH AND REWARD WHO THEY WANT TO REWARD.

Case in point: Obama is going on the road with his demagoguery about income inequality: right before leaving for another one of his incredibly lavish taxpayer-funded vacations.  He’s no different from his Stalinist-era Marxist buddies who did the same sort of demagogic blathering about capitalists oppressing the poor just before leaving on their caviar-stuffing vacations to their dachas on the Black Sea when their own people had nothing and were never going to have anything under the failed system of socialism.

If You Like ANY Of The Rights The Bill Of Rights Affirmed, You’d Better LOVE The 2nd Amendment’s Right To Keep And Bear Arms Without Infringement

February 4, 2013

Let’s take a quick look at the Bill of Rights.

Here’s a few things that stand out: the most important ones mention the rights of “the people.”

4th Amendment: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated

2nd Amendment: “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

And you see, the same liberal big government worshipers who feel like they are justified in infringing on a right that shall not be infringed will ultimately feel every scintilla as justified in violating rights that shall not be violated.

Maybe a liberal wouldn’t mind explaining to me why “the right to vote” means not having to show ID when the right to keep and bear arms without being infringed upon somehow necessitates not only an ID but background checks up the whazoo.  Their argument might amount to “the right to vote never killed anybody.”  And I’m saying, SERIOUSLY?!?!?  Dude, the Nazi Party in Germany was ELECTED.  We watched several years back as the Palestinian Liberation Organization – a murderous terrorist organization – was ELECTED.  We just watched as the Muslim Brotherhood – a murderous terrorist organization – was ELECTED in Egypt.  And that organization just imposed fascist sharia law over the nation’s constitution by fiat almost immediately afterward.

The right to vote is FAR more dangerous than the right for law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms.  And you are a moral idiot to the extreme not to understand that.

Moral idiots are far worse and far more dangerous than intellectual idiots.  Because moral idiots are people with dishonest minds and dishonest minds prefer lies to the truth.  Moral idiots such as those who run our culture today devote their intelligence to advancing lies.  And they are the first to justify extreme policies with the notion that the ends justify the means.

Let me point out that the very biggest moral idiots of all are the so-called “intellectuals” who dominate our universities and our political think tanks.  Thomas Sowell interacted with George Orwell to produce this gem:

“George Orwell said that some ideas are so foolish that only an intellectual could believe them, for no ordinary man could be such a fool. The record of twentieth century intellectuals was especially appalling in this regard. Scarcely a mass-murdering dictator of the twentieth century was without his intellectual supporters, not simply  in his own country, but also in foreign democracies, where people  were free to say whatever they wished.  Lenin, Stalin, Mao and  Hitler all had their admirers, defenders, and apologists among the  intelligentsia in Western democratic nations, despite the fact that  these dictators ended up killing people of their own country on a  scale unprecedented even by despotic regimes that preceded them” – Thomas Sowell, Intellectuals and Society, p. 2.

And a lot of the people who are such beyond-belief fools are the very same people who continue to be for banning guns “despite the fact that  these dictators ended up killing people of their own country on a  scale unprecedented even by despotic regimes that preceded them.”  They are consistent only in that they are so consistently morally stupid.

The nature of the big government socialist left was, is and will always be fascism.  And the nature of fascism has always been to deprive human dignity and freedom – starting with the right to self-defense.

Because herd animals shouldn’t have a right to defend themselves.  We don’t want our hamburgers getting guns any more than fascists want their people to resist their policies (such as Hitler’s Final Solution, such as Stalin’s Collectivization, such as Mao’s Great Leap Forward).

Which is why they’re going after our guns first just like Hitler and Stalin and Mao and Castro and Pol Pot and Kim Il-sung did before they brought the Horror against unarmed and defenseless people.  Considerably more than 100 million people were brutally murdered by leftist big government dictatorships during peacetime alone.  And the one thing all these governmental philosophies had in common besides big government totalitarian control was the initial disarming of the people they were about to impose horror against.  This is a fact of history.

What has the left done with the 2nd Amendment?  First of all, they have defined the right as belonging only to a militia.  Okay.  Then the 4th Amendment (and other important amendments such as the First Amendment) needs to be only for militias, because the same amendment which says the right of the people to bear arms says the right of the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.  And if “the people” in the 2nd Amendment refers only to “militia,” then ALL of the rights accorded to the people only pertain for those belonging to a militia.  Because a right recognized for “the people” either applies to “the people” or it doesn’t.  And which is it?  Which do you want?  “The people” either refers to a militia or to the actual “people.”  Just because the right to arms are also granted to well-organized militias does not in any way, shape or form abrogate the right of “the people” to keep and bear arms any more than the mention of the right of the press somehow abrogates the right of the people to freedom of speech and to peaceable assembly as guaranteed in the First Amendment.

They also try to limit the 2nd Amendment by asserting that it somehow only allows for hunting.  Why shouldn’t we have a right to the frankly dishonestly named “assault weapons”?  Because you don’t need thirty bullets, or even ten, to shoot a deer, we’re told.  That is absolutely absurd.  The founding father’s writings are jam-packed LOADED with their clearly expressed view that the ultimate purpose of an armed citizenry was to serve as a safeguard against a tyrant government along with serving as a means for a free people to defend their homes, their property and their persons.  Lastly, they have infringed ALL OVER the 2nd Amendment guarantee while dishonestly saying they’re not infringing on anybody’s rights.

Fascism and government tyranny has started with the confiscation of guns from the people, to disarm them in order to control them.  Big government is ALWAYS about controlling people.

If you value ANY of the other rights of the Bill of Rights, then you’d damned well better protect the 2nd Amendment.

I keep telling anyone who will read me, over and over again: the beast is coming.  And he most certainly is.  And soon.

The thing you need to realize is that by the time he gets here, the Democrat Party will have given the once-great and mighty United States of America into his hands by disarming the people.  And it will be Democrats who worship this ultimate big government leader and take his mark on their foreheads or their right hands as a sign of that worship.

We just went through a disgusting act of propaganda via incredibly deceitful editing of video by the leftwing MSNBC.  Neil Heslin – the father of a slain Sandy Hook shooting victim – said, “I ask if there’s anybody in this room that can give me one reason or challenge this question … why anybody in this room needs to have one of these assault-style weapons or military weapons or high-capacity clips.”  And then he categorically stated, “Not one person can answer that question.”

Yeah, Neil.  We CAN answer that question.  We have a right to be able to protect ourselves with the same sorts of weapons that either predatory criminals or an even more predatory criminal thug government possess.  Our founding fathers gave us that right, and our ancestors died to preserve that right for us.  Here’s a question for YOU, though: can you answer to the hundreds of millions of families who saw their governments brutally murder their parents, their children, their brothers and sisters, their grandparents, their cousins, etc. etc., just why it was that they didn’t deserve the right to be able to defend themselves???  Can you explain why you believe government ought to have the right to slaughter us like farm animals by the hundreds of millions???

That’s my question.

Consider smoking.  First the left forced restaurants to divide their buildings, airplanes, etc. into smoking and non-smoking sections.  But the nature of the left is to keep taking, keep building more regulations with more penalites.  Now you can’t smoke at all in any government place – whether the owner of that place likes it or not – and many people are not lawbreakers even for smoking in their own homes.  If that isn’t bad enough, you’ve got liberals saying that now that the left has taken over and socialized health care, it is too expensive to give the smokers the Medicare and health services they paid into.  And so they should die.  And I mean literally be killed by denial of medical treatment.

You’re only one government regulation away from being treated like Hitler treated the Jews or Stalin treated the Ukrainians or Mao treated, well, pretty much all of his people.

Get Your Spiritual House In Order. Because The Beast Is Coming And You Don’t Want To Be With The Huge Majority That Takes His Mark.

November 7, 2012

I write this as I hear the report from Fox News that Ohio has just been called for Obama.

Amazingly, and I would suggest incredibly insanely, the American people have decided that the status quo – Barack Obama as president, a Senate that hasn’t bothered to pass a budget in over three years, and a House of Representatives that is even more firmly under Republican control – is the path to a great and glorious future.  Part of me wants to cry, but I dare say the larger part wants to start laughing my dang head off at the sheer idiocy of the American electorate.

As I contemplate a second Obama term, a couple of quotes come to mind:

A journalist named Stephen Laurant had been jailed circa 1935 for questioning Nazism:

I am writing this from cell 24. Outside a new Germany is being created. Many millions are rejoicing. Hitler is promising everyone precisely what they want. I think when they wake to their sobering senses, they will find they have been led by the nose and duped by lies.”

And then one from Jewish doctor Herta Knotwolf:

“So many worship him as their savior, their redeemer from unbearable poverty.  Many are filled with some have worry, but all are united in the words, ‘Now things will change.”

Ah, yes, hope and change.

I wonder how that worked out for old Herta.  Because things very certainly DID change.  I mean, she was certainly spot on about that part, right?

This isn’t about intelligence; it’s about moral intelligence.  In the 1930s when the German people were busy electing the Nazi Party and Adolf Hitler to power, they were the most educated, scientific and literate people on the face of the earth.  Versus the people of the United States, who frankly have never been more stupid in their nation’s entire history.

There simply comes a point in the life of every nation and even every civilization where there is an overwhelming desire to commit suicide and the people give in to that desire.  And those peoples may not have thought that was what they were doing when they made the fatal decisions that resulted in their destruction, but suicide is precisely what they ultimately chose.

And it’s what the United States of America just decided to do.

Our real national debt is now already trillions of dollars beyond the $222 trillion that it was reported as being about three months ago.

Is that $222 trillion number new to you?  Here’s an article for you:

Blink! U.S. Debt Just Grew by $11 Trillion
By Laurence Kotlikoff and Scott Burns Aug 8, 2012 3:30 PM PT

Republicans and Democrats spent last summer battling how best to save $2.1 trillion over the next decade. They are spending this summer battling how best to not save $2.1 trillion over the next decade.

In the course of that year, the U.S. government’s fiscal gap — the true measure of the nation’s indebtedness — rose by $11 trillion.

The fiscal gap is the present value difference between projected future spending and revenue. It captures all government liabilities, whether they are official obligations to service Treasury bonds or unofficial commitments, such as paying for food stamps or buying drones.

Some question whether “official” and “unofficial” spending commitments can be added together. But calling particular obligations “official” doesn’t make them economically more important. Indeed, the government would sooner renege on Chinese holding U.S. Treasuries than on Americans collecting Social Security, especially because the U.S. can print money and service its bonds with watered-down dollars.

For its part, economic theory sees through labels and views a country’s official debt for what it is — a linguistic construct devoid of real economic content. In contrast, the fiscal gap is theoretically well-defined and invariant to the choice of labels. Each labeling choice changes the mix of obligations between official and unofficial, but leaves the total unchanged.

Dangerous Growth

The U.S. fiscal gap, calculated (by us) using theCongressional Budget Office’s realistic long-term budget forecast — the Alternative Fiscal Scenario — is now $222 trillion. Last year, it was $211 trillion. The $11 trillion difference — this year’s true federal deficit — is 10 times larger than the official deficit and roughly as large as the entire stock of official debt in public hands.

This fantastic and dangerous growth in the fiscal gap is not new. In 2003 and 2004, the economists Alan Auerbach and William Gale extended the CBO’s short-term forecast and measured fiscal gaps of $60 trillion and $86 trillion, respectively. In 2007, the first year the CBO produced the Alternative Fiscal Scenario, the gap, by our reckoning, stood at $175 trillion. By 2009, when the CBO began reporting the AFS annually, the gap was $184 trillion. In 2010, it was $202 trillion, followed by $211 trillion in 2011 and $222 trillion in 2012.

So, based on that actual debt increasing by $11 trillion in one year and three full months passing since the announcement of said debt, that figure is now $222 trillion plus an additional $2.75 trillion.  So please don’t stare at the zeros as they whiz by or your eyeballs will pop out and it is no easy job trying to stick them back into your skull.

And with an Obama who has increased the “official” national debt by sixty percent in only four years, along with a Democrat Senate that hasn’t bothered to pass a budget in well over three years (it’s been 1,259 days since Harry Reid’s Senate passed a budget back on April 23 of 2009), and a Republican-controlled House that has already shown they will not abandon their agenda or their constituents, well, that’s your team who will take on looming disaster.

We just elected our own destruction.  Taxmaggedom is an example of this dilemma we just voted to perpetuate: they’ll probably be able to kick the can of economic calamity down the road for another few months, but that calamity will continue to hang over our heads like a shrapnel-loaded bomb waiting to blow up in our national face.

I know many of you love suspense, but what’s going to happen is “disaster” will be wearing Harlem Globetrotter uniforms and coming from every direction while Team Obama will be dressed in Washington Generals uniforms.  And by the end of the game, Disaster will have made America look incredibly stupid.

We’re a hopelessly fractured nation under Obama.  And just to try to describe that in election night terms, Obama will be the first president in history to be reelected by a smaller electoral college majority than he was elected with when he first became president, and as I write this Obama is actually over two-hundred thousand votes behind in the popular vote.  Not that it will matter to Obama, who will view his victory as a mandate.

Click here if you would like to see what a “mandate” actually looks like.

And that division and bitterness and inability to solve any of our crises – which was worse than it has EVER been these last four years under Obama – will get worse.  I promise you.  And that is because we, like the locusts, have no leader; rather, we have a demagogue who masquerades as a leader.  He is capable only of blaming others while refusing to accept any responsibility for pretty much anything.  We’re going to be paying dearly for that.

I don’t know how to tell you this, America.  You deserve to suffer for your stupidity.  And you’re going to get what you deserve.  Because this is still God damn America, full speed ahead to hell.

By the time Barack Hussein Obama leaves office in 2016, America will be the proverbial headless chicken.  We might still be technically on our feet, but we’re going to be dead.  Unless you’re reaching into your pocket as we speak to pay that $224.75 trillion our country owes, that is.  Anyone?  Is that crickets I hear?

We are a nation that cannot even POSSIBLY begin to come together to solve our problems.  And the reelection of the most partisan and most divisive president to ever lead America is all you need to know to realize that the United States of America will NEVER be able to come together.  Until Antichrist comes along to sweep the same fools off their feet who were swept off their feet by Obama.

How does Antichrist come to power?  Revelation chapter six describes the scenario: a complete global economic collapse, wars on top of wars as nation and ethnic group fight nation and ethnic group to the death over resources and grudges, famine and mass death will characterize the world that Antichrist will ride to save on his white horse.

I look at that $224.75 trillion debt, I look at a European failed experiment in socialism that is teetering on the brink of collapse, and I feel in my gut that Revelation 6 isn’t very far away from the real world.

Antichrist will literally be worshiped by the entire world.  Why?  Because he will appear to have all the answers, and people will look at what the world had been like before the beast came along to save them, and behold the vision that the Antichrist shows them, and literally the entire world will belong to this coming tyrant.

The interesting thing is that absolutely everything we know about this coming Antichrist screams “big government.”  The Antichrist will be the ultimate big government socialist.  Period.   If you are a typical liberal who admires the United Nations, well, your future object of worship will literally BE the United Nations.  The entire planet will rally behind this man.  If you think that the government ought to have a stronger hand in the economy, worry no more: because the government of the Antichrist will have complete control over anything that has anything whatsoever to do with the economy.

Oh, Obama is going to fail something fierce, but you Democrats can already breathe a future sigh of relief right now: because the Antichrist you will soon be worshiping will fulfill your wildest dreams.

The Antichrist will also be the quintessential politician.

The Book of Daniel applies the term “wisdom” to both Daniel and the coming Antichrist.  Daniel was given wisdom to understand riddles and unravel them; Antichrist will have the wisdom to understand riddles and therefore tie the truth up in knots such that no human being will be able to penetrate his facade of lies and deceit.

He’s coming.  And he’s going to be here very soon.  And if you haven’t already made your decision for Jesus Christ, you will fall prey to the beast’s wisdom and you will worship him and you will take his mark.

Are you dismayed over the election last night?

Don’t be.  Read this:

An old missionary couple had been working in Africa for years and were  returning to New York to retire. They had no pension; their health was  broken; they were defeated, discouraged, and afraid. They discovered  they were booked on the same ship as President Teddy Roosevelt, who was  returning from one of his big-game hunting expeditions.

No one paid any attention to them. They watched the fanfare that  accompanied the President’s entourage, with passengers trying to catch a  glimpse of the great man. As the ship moved across the ocean, the old  missionary said to his wife, “Something is wrong.” “Why should we have  given our lives in faithful service for God in Africa all these many  years and have no one care a thing about us? Here this man comes back  from a hunting trip and everybody makes much over him, but nobody gives  two hoots about us.”

“Dear, you shouldn’t feel that way”, his wife said. He replied “I can’t  help it; it doesn’t seem right.”

When the ship docked in New York, a band was waiting to greet the  President. The mayor and other dignitaries were there. The papers were  full of the President’s arrival. No one noticed this missionary couple.  They slipped off the ship and found a cheap flat on the East Side,  hoping the next day to see what they could do to make a living in the  city.

That night the man’s spirit broke. He said to his wife, “I can’t take  this; God is not treating us fairly”. His wife replied, “Why don’t you  go in the bedroom and tell that to the Lord?”

A short time later he came out from the bedroom, but now his face was  completely different. His wife asked, “Dear, what happened?” “The Lord  settled it with me”, he said. “I told Him how bitter I was that the  President should receive this tremendous homecoming, when no one met us  as we returned home. And when I finished, it seemed as though the Lord  put His hand on my shoulder and simply said;

“But you’re not home yet.”

Author Unknown

America isn’t your home.

America has been hijacked by people who are determined to worship the beast and to force the country to worship the beast with them.

It’s sad, of course.  There’s no question it’s sad.  And you might feel sick, broken, defeated, discouraged and afraid.

But this isn’t your home.

And the same God who forewarned us about the world that would worship Antichrist also told us about a wonderful eternity that awaits all those who have placed their trust not in human government but in the Lamb of God.

If you still feel discouraged, go to your Bible and cheat: turn to the last page of Revelation to see who wins.

Democrats’ War On Poverty Has Been A War On America That Has Done NOTHING To Help The Poor

May 10, 2012

One of my favorite programs is the Wall Street Journal’s “Journal Editorial Report” which appears on Fox NewsThis segment helps you understand why:

When we come back, Paul Ryan takes on the religious left after 90 Georgetown professors attack his budget proposal as going against Catholic social teaching. Would Jesus Christ really have favored big government?
 
(COMMERCIAL BREAK)
 
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

REP. PAUL RYAN, R-WISC., CHAIRMAN, HOUSE BUDGET COMMITTEE: Since we meet here today at America’s first Catholic university, I feel it is important to discuss how, as a Catholic in public life, my own personal thinking on these issues has been guided by my understanding of the church’s social teaching. Simply put, I don’t believe the preferential option for the poor means a preferential option for big government.

 (END VIDEO CLIP)
 
GIGOT: That was the House budget committee chairman, Paul Ryan, last week delivering an address at Georgetown University. The Wisconsin Republican has come under fire from some Catholics on the left who claimed the blue print goes against the church’s social teaching. Ninety Georgetown faculty and administrators sent a letter to Ryan in advance of the appearance that read, in part, “We would be remiss in our duty to you and our students if we did not challenge your continuing misuse of Catholic teaching to defend a budget that decimates food programs for struggling families, radically weakens protections for the elderly and sick, and gives more tax breaks to the wealthiest few.”
 
Joining the panel this week, Wall Street Journal columnist and deputy editor, Dan Henninger, and columnist, Mary Anastasia O’Grady.
 
Dan, we’ll put it on the table, we are all Catholics here, grew up with Catholic social teaching.
 
DAN HENNINGER, COLUMNIST & DEPUTY EDITOR: Right.
 
GIGOT: To my mind, the news is not so much Jesuits or Georgetown faculty by conservatives. That is an old story. The news is that Ryan is willing to mix it up in return. Why is the debate important?
 
HENNINGER: The debate is important for — I tell you, Paul, it is important for reasons that both Ryan’s critics and Paul Ryan cite, both that letter and his talk said the same thing. One in six Americans are in poverty. Now, the Great Society started in 1965, creating programs to address poverty.
 
GIGOT: Lyndon Johnson.
 
HENNINGER: Lyndon Johnson.
 
GIGOT: Expansion of government.
 
HENNINGER: 50 years later, one in six Americans are in poverty? After spending trillions and trillions and trillions of dollars. Now Ryan is saying, first, we need accountability over why that has happened. Second, the three main programs — two main programs were created then, Medicare and Medicaid, adding in Social Security, the three major entitlements, the costs are so large that they drain money away from other programs for the poor.
 
GIGOT: Right.
 
HENNINGER: And Paul Ryan is saying we have to look at this and start making some decisions about where that is going. And that’s what he’s asking his critics to come and talk to him about.
 
GIGOT: This is what the late Senator, a Democrat, and a Catholic, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, used to make the case to me that — he said, Democrats should reform entitlements for seniors and Medicare and Social Security because, as Dan said, they are growing a huge wedge in the federal government. They will soak up, if trends continue, almost all the spending there is, the money there is, and there would be no money left for child care, for example, or education, or transportation, much less defense — good liberal purposes.
 
MARY ANASTASIA O’GRADY: But, Paul, why are you talking about facts?
 
(LAUGHTER)
 
Facts are not what the left has used to grow the government to what it is right now.
 
GIGOT: That’s one my big flaws.
 
(LAUGHTER)
 
O’GRADY: Really, you have to stop that.
 
Paul Ryan is freaking these guys out because he is taking their language and using it against them. He talks about how government dissolves the common good of society, how it dishonors the dignity of the human person. They think they own that language. And they think that language justifies big government. And he is saying, no, what you have done with this big government has actually undermined the things that Catholic teaching is supposed to be about. And that is why they are upset about it. If Paul Ryan, God forbid, gets the morale high ground, which they think they own, they will have to go back to the facts. And the facts will not support their position.
 
GIGOT: Important point, a lot of Republicans and conservatives tend to shrink, at least in my experience, from moral arguments. Look at my failing here, brining — talking practical points in fact.
 
(LAUGHTER)
 
But if — so you leave them a monopoly on the moral rhetoric, which is very power of in politics, on the left. Ryan is saying, I will meet you on that same battlefield.
 
HENNINGER: Well, he has created a phrase, which is the immorality of debt. And, in fact, Pope Benedict himself apparently said that if you live with debt that begins do impede the government’s ability to provide basic services, then you are living in untrue — Benedict is obviously talking about Europe.
 
GIGOT: Right.

HENNINGER: And Europe has had a tremendous commitment to social justice and social programs, and now we see Europe as a case study in struggling with trying to pay for commitments that simply they can no longer afford. And that is the issue that Paul Ryan is trying to raise. And he now is putting it in moral terms. And there is a moral issue there. And I think he deserve a good-faith answer.
 
GIGOT: If you look at Europe, one thing that we can see is when you have a debt crisis, and you finally have to do something about it, who suffers the most and first? It isn’t the Georgetown faculty. 

(LAUGHTER)
 
It is the poor, who have their budgets and spending cut?

This is precisely the kind of moral argument that I have been advocating for on this blog.  Here’s an example:

So let’s read the Bible and see what it says.

First there’s that little passage in 1 Samuel that warns about the danger of a socialist king who would seize what rightly belonged to the people if they wickedly chose big government instead of trusting in God (as I previously have pointed out):

The story of abusive big government is not a recent one. The prophet Samuel describes it in the Old Testament:

But the people refused to listen to Samuel. “No!” they said. “We want a king over us. Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles. — 1 Samuel 8:19-20

Who are we really rejecting?
God said to Samuel:
“…it is not you they have rejected, Samuel, but they have rejected me as their king.” — 1 Samuel 8:7

Samuel told all the words of the LORD to the people who were asking him for a king. He said, “This is what the king who will reign over you will do: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. Your menservants and maidservants and the best of your cattle and donkeys he will take for his own use. He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, and the LORD will not answer you in that day.” — 1 Samuel 8:10-18

The tenth of everything that God warned the people the king would take was on top of the tenth that belonged to God. Which is to say that the king would double their taxes in addition to treating the people like they belonged to him. Of course, that tyrant king was only seizing an additional tenth of his people’s wealth; imagine today, where in the highest-taxed states (which are all Democrat states, fwiw), some Americans are forced to pay more than half of their income in taxes. A mere extra tenth would be like a blessing to them.

It doesn’t sound as if the king whom we are told again and again – ”he will take” – is a good thing. Except on Al Sharpton’s and demonic Democrats warped and evil account of the passage.

Then there’s Jesus, who contrasted what the government confiscated with what belonged to God:

“Show me a denarius. Whose portrait and inscription are on it?” Caesar’s,” they replied. He said to them, “Then give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” — Luke 20:24-25

Notice that what belongs to God isn’t also described as belonging to Caesar. What Jesus is MOST DEFINITELY NOT SAYING here is that giving unto Caesar is in any way, shape or form tantamount to giving to God. Unless, that is, you are a Democrat (i.e., a demonic bureaucrat), in which case worshipping the State is identical to worshipping God.

When Democrats want to let Obama take more of what belongs to us, they are giving their god his due, not the God of the Bible.

As you could see by examining the links, I took part of that argument from a previous article titled, “Obama’s Government As God Believes It Owns Everything The People Earn.”

So when liberals demand the expansion of government they are not being “pro-God”; they are being ANTI-God.  And it also turns out to be the case that they are tragically anti-poor, too.

In another article, I wrote the following to document how Democrats have undermined charity in favor of socialism – while being anything butcharitable” in their own lives – while hurting the people they claimed they were helping:

I once quoted Burton Folsom in his great book “New Deal Or Raw Deal?” It’s time to quote that passage again:

Throughout American history, right from the start, charity had been a state and local function. Civic leaders, local clergy, and private citizens, evaluated the legitimacy of people’s need in their communities or counties; churches and other organizations could then provide food, shelter, and clothing to help victims of fires or women abandoned by drunken husbands. Most Americans believed that the face-to-face encounters of givers and receivers of charity benefited both groups. It created just the right amount of uplift and relief, and discouraged laziness and a poor work ethic.

The Founders saw all relief as local and voluntary, and the Constitution gave no federal role for the government in providing charity. James Madison, in defending the Constitution, observed, “No man is allowed to be a judge in his own cause, because his interest would certainly bias his judgment and, not improbably, corrupt his integrity.” In other words, if relief, and other areas, were made functions of the federal government, the process would become politicized and politicians and deadbeats could conspire to trade votes for food” (New Deal or Raw Deal, page 76-77).

Prior to FDR, the American people took care of their OWN, family by family, town by town, county by county, state by state. They had NEVER had welfare, and in fact found the very concept of welfare distasteful. And I’m going to tell you right now that they were better, stronger people than we are as a result of that moral superiority and that faith in THE PEOPLE and not the GOVERNMENT.

Barack Obama – who gave virtually NOTHING to charity when giving would have demonstrated the character he proved he DIDN’T have – doesn’t trust the American people, or much care about them, for that matter. He doesn’t want to help people; he wants to grow the size of government. He wants only to make the state bigger and bigger and more and more powerful and controlling. Obama is angry because he doesn’t believe people should have the right to decide for themselves how much of their own money they “need”; HE wants to make that decision for them and then impose it on them so he can seize their money and redistribute it to people who will vote for him and for his party.

Whenever a Democrat calls for more taxes, understand that what they are really saying is that they believe that the government is too small and needs to become larger. And whenever they call for more taxes for the sake of helping people, what they are really saying is that you are a bad and immoral person who can’t and shouldn’t be trusted to help people in need and that it is better to take your money away from you and put it into the coffers of a big government socialist redistributionist agency which will piss it away on boondoggle programs that benefit the politically connected far more than they do the poor. And the fact that even as Barack Obama and the overwhelming Democrat majority that had dictatorial control of both branches of Congress made government bigger than it has ever been and yet blacks are now worse off than they’ve been for generations and women are being set way back is the icing on the cake of the proof of that fact. Liberals hurt the people they cynically and falsely claim to be helping – and then demagogically use the misery that they themselves created to accumulate even more power for themselves and their failed agenda.

A lot of Americans like Social Security.  But they wouldn’t if they knew the facts about it the massive debt it has compiled and the alternatives to it – proposed by Democrats, for that matter – that would have been demonstrated to have been FAR better.

Obama’s policies have sent real inflation (things like food and gasoline) skyrocketing.  And who does that hurt more: the rich or the poor???  Let me assure you that it’s not rich people who are being forced to choose between putting gas in their cars so they can make it to work or buying food for their families.

Obama and his Democrat lackeys rammed minimum wage hikes through.  Conservatives said it would severely hurt teen employment.  And the documented reality is that it has massively hurt young workers EXACTLY AS CONSERVATIVES PREDICTED.

It is no surprise that the economy is in the worst condition since the LAST TIME we let a socialist run it.

Just as it is absolutely no surprise that poverty is the highest it has been in at least 52 years – and frankly in HISTORY – under this failed president whose only ability is the ability to lie and slander and demagogue.

What’s So Terribly Wrong About Obama’s And Democrat Party’s Socialism, In Words Of Many Great Thinkers (Well, And Two Not So Great Ones)

December 12, 2011

I was looking for a particular quote (Winston Churchill’s just below) and found it.  I also found a lot of other quotes that I had to do my little part to help preserve for posterity about the evils of everything the modern Democrat Party stands for and the destruction it has already done and surely will continue to do the the United States of America:

On speaking about communism: “We pretend to work; they pretend to pay us.” — Vladimir Voinovich

We contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle. — Winston Churchill (1903)

The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money. — Margaret Thatcher

Every time government attempts to handle our affairs, it costs more and the results are worse than if we had handled them ourselves. — Benjamin Constant, Brazilian statesman

There are severe limits to the good that the government can do for the economy, but there are almost no limits to the harm it can do.  — Milton Friedman, Nobel laureate

Every time government attempts to handle our affairs, it costs more and the results are worse than if we had handled them ourselves.  — Benjamin Constant, Brazilian statesman

A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away. — Barry Goldwater

There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him. — Robert A. Heinlein

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot further the brotherhood of many by encouraging class hatred. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn. You cannot build character and courage by taking away mans initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.  — William J. H. Boetcker.

Government cannot make man richer, but it can make him poorer. — Ludwig von Mises

Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys. — P. J. O’Rourke

There is no virtue in compulsory government charity, and there is no virtue in advocating it, A politician who portrays himself as “caring” and “sensitive” because he wants to expand the Government’s charitable programs is merely saying that he’s willing to try to do good with other people’s money. Well, who isn’t? And a voter who takes pride in supporting such programs is telling us that he’ll do good with his own money – if a gun is held to his head. — P. J. O’Rourke

The Tenth Commandment [thou shalt not covet] sends a message to collectivists, to people who believe wealth is best obtained by redistribution. And the message is clear and concise: Go to hell.  — P. J. O’Rourke

Government’s view of the economy should be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. If it stops moving, subsidize it. — Ronald Reagan (1986)

Give me control over a man’s economic actions, and hence over his means of survival, and except for a few occasional heroes, I’ll promise to deliver to you men who think and write and behave as I want them to. — Benjamine A. Rooge

A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend of the support of Paul. — George Bernard Shaw

If you have been voting for politicians who promise to give you goodies at someone else’s expense, then you have no right to complain when they take your money and give it to someone else, including themselves. — Thomas Sowell (1992)

The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened. — Norman Thomas – Socialist Party Presidential candidate (1948)

No man’s life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session. — Mark Twain (1866)

In general, the art of government consists in taking as much money as possible from one party of citizens to give to the other. — Voltaire (1764)

No republic has long outlived the discovery by a majority of its people that they could vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. — Alexander Tytler

Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, CONFUSES the distinction BETWEEN Government AND Society. As a result…EVERY time We object to a thing being done by Government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all.  — Frederic Bastiat

Here are a few others that expose the corrupt heart of Barack Obama and the Democrat Party:

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”–Thomas Jefferson

“That the desires of the majority of the people are often for injustice and inhumanity against the minority, is demonstrated by every page of the history of the whole world” — John Adams

Is it not High Time for the People of this Country explicitly to declare, whether they will be Freemen or Slaves? It is an important Question which ought to be decided. It concerns us more than any Thing in this Life. The Salvation of our Souls is interested in the Event: For wherever Tyranny is establish’d, Immorality of every Kind comes in like a Torrent. It is in the Interest of Tyrants to reduce the People to Ignorance and Vice. For they cannot live in any Country where Virtue and Knowledge prevail. The Religion and public Liberty of a People are intimately connected; their Interests are interwoven, they cannot subsist separately; and therefore they rise and fall together. For this Reason, it is always observable, that those who are combin’d to destroy the People’s Liberties, practice every Art to poison their Morals. How greatly then does it concern us, at all Events, to put a Stop to the Progress of Tyranny. It is advanced already by far too many Strides. We are at this moment upon a precipice. The next step may be fatal to us. Let us then act like wise Men; calmly took around us and consider what is best to be done. Let us converse together upon this most interesting Subject and open our minds freely to each other. Let it be the topic of conversation in every social Club. Let every Town assemble. Let Associations & Combinations be everywhere set up to consult and recover our just Rights. — Samuel Adams, 1772

“If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.” — Samuel Adams

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. — Benjamin Franklin

Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of Liberty. — Thomas Jefferson

Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!” –Patrick Henry

“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.”  — Thomas Paine

“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”  — Thomas Jefferson

“I place economy among the first and most important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers to be feared. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and in our comforts, in our labor and in our amusements. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy.”  — Thomas Jefferson

“I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious.” –Thomas Jefferson

“The Tenth Amendment [i.e., “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people”] is the foundation of the Constitution.” — Thomas Jefferson

“He that goes a borrowing goes a sorrowing.”  — Benjamin Franklin, from his writings, 1758

“I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.” — Benjamin Franklin, On the Price of Corn and Management of the Poor, November 1766

“Repeal that [welfare] law, and you will soon see a change in their manners. St. Monday and St. Tuesday, will soon cease to be holidays. Six days shalt thou labor, though one of the old commandments long treated as out of date, will again be looked upon as a respectable precept; industry will increase, and with it plenty among the lower people; their circumstances will mend, and more will be done for their happiness by inuring them to provide for themselves, than could be done by dividing all your estates among them.” — Benjamin Franklin, letter to Collinson, May 9, 1753

“To contract new debts is not the way to pay for old ones.”– George Washinton, to James Welch, April 7, 1799

“As a very important source of strength and security, cherish public credit. One method of preserving it is to use it as sparingly as possible.” George Washington, Farewell Address, September 17, 1796

“I go on the principle that a public debt is a public curse.” — James Madison, to Henry Lee, April 13, 1790

“With respect to the words general welfare, I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.” — James Madison

“If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare… they may appoint teachers in every state… The powers of Congress would subvert the very foundation, the very nature of the limited government established by the people of America.” — James Madison

“Then I say, the earth belongs to each of these generations during its course, fully and in its own right. The second generation receives it clear of the debts and incumbrances of the first, the third of the second, and so on. For if the first could charge it with a debt, then the earth would belong to the dead and not to the living generation. Then, no generation can contract debts greater than may be paid during the course of its own existence.” –Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, 1789

“Loading up the nation with debt and leaving it for the following generations to pay is morally irresponsible.  Excessive debt is a means by which governments oppress the people and waste their substance. No nation has a right to contract debt for periods longer than the majority contracting it can expect to live.” — Thomas Jefferson

“It is a miserable arithmetic which makes any single privation whatever so painful as a total privation of everything which must necessarily follow the living so far beyond our income.” –Thomas Jefferson to William Hay, 1787

“The same prudence, which in private life would forbid our paying our own money for unexplained projects, forbids it in the dispensation of the public monies.”–Thomas Jefferson, to Shelton Giliam, June 19, 1808

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.” –Noah Webster

“A nation of well informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins.” — Benjamin Franklin

“I am for a government rigorously frugal and simple, applying all the possible savings of the public revenue to the discharge of the national debt, and not for a multiplication of officers and salaries merely to make partisans, and for increasing, by every device, the public debt on the principle of its being a public blessing.” — Thomas Jefferson

“If the debt which the banking companies owe be a blessing to anybody, it is to themselves alone, who are realizing a solid interest of eight or ten per cent on it. As to the public, these companies have banished all our gold and silver medium, which, before their institution, we had without interest, which never could have perished in our hands, and would have been our salvation now in the hour of war; instead of which they have given us two hundred million of froth and bubble, on which we are to pay them heavy interest, until it shall vanish into air… We are warranted, then, in affirming that this parody on the principle of ‘a public debt being a public blessing,’ and its mutation into the blessing of private instead of public debts, is as ridiculous as the original principle itself. In both cases, the truth is, that capital may be produced by industry, and accumulated by economy; but jugglers only will propose to create it by legerdemain tricks with paper.” –Thomas Jefferson to John W. Eppes, 1813.

“I sincerely believe… that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity under the name of funding is but swindling futurity on a large scale.” –Thomas Jefferson to John Taylor, 1816.

“To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.”  — Thomas Jefferson

“If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people, under the pretense of taking care of them, they must become happy.” — Thomas Jefferson, to Thomas Cooper, January 29, 1802

“We are endeavoring, too, to reduce the government to the practice of a rigorous economy, to avoid burdening the people, and arming the magistrate with a patronage of money, which might be used to corrupt and undermine the principles of our government.”–Thomas Jefferson, letter to Mr. Pictet, February 5, 1803

“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.” –Thomas Jefferson

“To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.” –Thomas Jefferson

“Still one thing more, fellow citizens — a wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicities.”– Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1801

“Experience has proved to us that a dollar of silver disappears for every dollar of paper emitted.” –Thomas Jefferson to James Monroe, 1791.

“The maxim of buying nothing without the money in our pockets to pay for it would make of our country one of the happiest on earth.” –Thomas Jefferson to Alexander Donald, 1787.

And in light of our Washington leaders stated goal of re-inflating the housing bubble: “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”–Thomas Jefferson

Mind you, all of these men’s views can be summarily dismissed if you consider the following man a “great thinker”:

“I think that we can say that the Constitution reflected the enormous blind spot in this culture that carries on until this day and that the framers had that same blind spot. I don’t think the two views are contradictory to say that it was a remarkable political document that paved the way for where we are now and to say that it also reflected the fundamental flaw of this country that continues to this day.” — Barack Hussein Obama

A few great non-founding father quotes regarding the socialism of the modern Democrat Party:

“The collectivist mindset, as embodied by the necessity to be organized through a centralized, bureaucratically-dominated, legislatively-driven authority, where accountability for individual welfare is subservient to the required acquiescence demanded by the tenets of Marxism, is contrary and in diametrical opposition to America’s core mandate for personal freedom and the naturally inherent psychological need to have ownership in life’s outcomes. The road to dictatorship can start with the most noble of beginnings and can be, ironically, augmented by the very people it ends up controlling. For it is so that an orientation of dependence becomes an addiction to need.” — O.D. Harrisson

“There are many who are losing faith in God and Government. For some, God may be a question, but for all of us Government is a fact.
Our government was intended by our Forefathers to be a tool of the people, used to facillitate our freedom and provide for our common good. Government was to exist to administer our will, not to become our administrator.

          Because this is the people’s government, not a political party’s government or any one individual’s government, we do not look to it to solve all societal ills or install perfection among us. That is the way our founders designed it, that is the way it has worked for well over two centuries and that is the way we want it.

          When taxed inappropriately we lose our economy, when regulated beyond need we lose our freedom, when treated like children we lose our self respect and when lied to we lose our rights. So when government goes wrong, it is we who are wronged, but also it is we who are wrong for letting it happen” — O.D. Harrisson

What were the old annual deficits under Republicans have now become the monthly deficits under Democrats.” — Rep. Jeb Hensarling

“Rarely in history has a nation so passively accepted such a radical change in the military balance. If we are to remedy it, we must first recognize the fact that we have placed ourselves at a significant disadvantage voluntarily. This is not the result of SALT. It is the consequence of unilateral decisions extending over a decade and a half. By a strategic doctrine adopted in the ’60s, by the bitter domestic divisions growing out of the war in Vietnam, and by choices by the present administration.

          All these actions were unilateral-hence avoidable. They were not extracted from us by clever Soviet negotiators. We imposed them on ourselves by our choices, theories and domestic turmoil. It is therefore in our power to alter them.” — Henry Kissinger

“You will never understand bureaucracies until you understand that for bureaucrats procedure is everything and outcomes are nothing.” – Thomas Sowell

“It is the highest impertinence and presumption, therefore, in kings and ministers, to pretend to watch over the economy of private people, and to restrain their expense. … They are themselves always, and without any exception, the greatest spendthrifts in the society.” — Adam Smith, “Wealth of Nations,” Book II, Chapter II

“The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.” – Albert Einstein

“Some ideas are so foolish that only an intellectual could believe them, for no ordinary man could be such a fool.”  — George Orwell

“Life’s tough. It’s even tougher if you’re stupid.” — John Wayne

And one that is particularly important to read and understand today:

“We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work. And I have just one interest, and if I am wrong… somebody else can have my job. I want to see this country prosperous. I want to see people get a job. I want to see people get enough to eat. We have never made good on our promises… I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started… And an enormous debt to boot!” – Henry Morgenthau, FDR’s Treasury Secretary, May 9, 1939

An eerie prediction of false messiahs and the stupidity of “intellectuals” who believe them:

A journalist named Stephen Laurant had been jailed circa 1935 for questioning Nazism:
“I am writing this from cell 24. Outside a new Germany is being created. Many millions are rejoicing. Hitler is promising everyone precisely what they want. I think when they wake to their sobering senses, they will find they have been led by the nose and duped by lies.”

Jewish doctor Herta Knotwolf: “So many worship him [Hitler] as their savior, their redeemer from unbearable poverty.  Many are filled with some worry, but all are united in the words, ‘Now things will change.'”

While it is unlikely that posterity will ever regard me as a great thinker in comparison to the numerous great thinkers I cited above (with the one singular exception of Barack Obama above), I hope you don’t mind me quoting myself:

“If you tax people who work and give it to people who don’t work, you will end up with fewer and fewer people who work.”
