GOD GIVES RIGHTS TO SELF-PROTECTION



Second Amendment does not “give” us a right to keep and bear arms
God Father Politics – Gary DeMar – 8/11/2014

The right existed before the Bill of Rights was drafted and passed.
“A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
Wikipedia gets it right:

“The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution protects the right of individuals to keep and bear arms.”
 
RIGHT TO SELF-DEFENSE - READ YOUR BIBLE

ILLEGAL CHILDREN - HOW DID THEY GET TO THE U.S. BORDER?



Puzzle for all you smart people

One good puzzle usually breeds another. But in this real circumstance puzzle, an accurate specific answer may not be known by any of us regular folk living north of our southern border. But it does breed strong curiosity…..  

Puzzle One:

Imagine you are a 3-year old to 8-year old child. You are on your own without adults. You are asked to walk from  Houston, Texas, to Minneapolis, Minnesota, on your own with no food or belongings to sustain you. Then you are asked to walk an additional 100 miles  past Minnesota.  Could you do it?

How long would it take you as a 6-year old? That is the minimum distance these poor, helpless  little ones have supposedly walked from Central America to the border of Texas, again, on their own. They didn't get lost.

And they survived the journey without help (unless you buy into the notion that a destitute out-of-work family, run out of their homes by gangs, and living in squalor somehow came up with $8,000 to $10,000 for EACH child to pay a coyote to take  them to the border).


Puzzle Two:

Now, on the map, you must start somewhere in the green area. Let's make it easy and start where green meets orange, so that you had the least mileage by not having to cover  the whole green area. Just start where the green meets the orange. Blue, of course, is water.

Your task is to figure a route from the green area to the purple area without going into the  blue area and avoiding towns and cities in the orange area. The black line is  the distance from the nearest town to Mexico's southern border that touches  the green area to Laredo, Texas, one of the CLOSEST purple towns. 1,220 miles  across desert and
mountains with no equipment, food, or help.

If orange had  stopped these innocents where orange touches green, problem would not have occurred. However, what 6-year old do you know who could walk 1,220 miles  (minimum), probably more like 1,500 miles, on their own without dying?

How many days would  it take for a 6-year old to walk 1,220 miles without help, directions, food, sun protection, etc.?

I don't think the whole truth is being  given to us, folks……Someone created and assisted this, and the media should be figuring out who it is

STUPID GOVERNMENT INTRUSIONS ARE BEING AVOIDED



1776 2.0:  The front lines of the New Revolt
Affluent Investor – Jerry Bowyer – 7/11/2014

It seems to be that as the United States federal government and the Presidency in particular have gradually morphed into something more like a European monarchy, our attitude towards its sovereignty has shifted. Certainly no state or province or faction of the ruling class would dare to challenge the military might of the United States in a single act of open revolt. But as time goes on we challenge it in small acts of secret revolt. Violation, for example, of our draconian system of immigration laws has become quite common. How many appointees to the federal bench or to the office of Attorney General must be caught in nannygate scandals involving child care payments to illegal aliens made under the table before we get the fact that our governing class, even that part which is directly pledged to enforce the law, routinely ignore this law?

Businesses split in half so as to be qualified for small business exemptions from federal regulation. Farmers look the other way when they hire day laborers who clearly are not citizens. Federal regulators write their regulations, and financiers change their form of organization in unforeseen ways to avoid the regulations, even ones they pushed for.

And most people have absolutely no moral compunction about any of these violations of either the spirit or letter of the law, because deep down they no longer believe that the law, especially the tax code, represents any compelling moral principle, nor do its dictates any longer seem to be fair. They don’t think their home state has earned taxes on the Amazon purchases or that it deserves any share of the mutually beneficial exchange between you and your dry wall guy.

Increasingly we’re all in business and in personal life thinking of more and more ways to game a system which we have less and less faith in.

It’s not civil disobedience that I’m talking about. It’s the opposite: Civil disobedience is meant to be noticed. It is a price paid in the hope of creating social change. 

What I’m talking about is not based on hope; in fact, it has given up much hope on social change. It thinks the government is a colossal amoeba twitching mindlessly in response to tiny pinpricks of pain from an endless army of micro-brained interest groups. The point is not to teach the amoeba nor to guide it, but simply to stay away from the lethal stupidity of its pseudopods.

The amoeba does not get smarter but it does get hungrier and bigger. On the other hand, we get smarter. More and more of our life takes place outside of the amoeba’s reach: in the privacy of our own homes, in capital accounts in other nations, or in the fastest growing amoeba avoidance zone ever created, cyberspace. We revolt decision by decision, transaction by transaction, because we believe deep down that most of what government tells us to do is, at bottom, illegitimate.

OBAMA'S EXECUTIVE ORDER: WASTED PAPER



Obama’s LGBT Executive Order undermines pluralism and religious liberty
Daily Caller – Ryan T. Anderson – 7/21/2014

Today President Barack Obama issued an executive order barring federal contractors from what it describes as “discrimination” on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. Employers should respect the intrinsic dignity of all of their employees, but today’s executive order undermines our nation’s commitment to pluralism and religious liberty.

Today’s executive order does not contain any religious liberty protections—though it does retain an older federal regulation that permits religious organizations that favor employment of co-religionists to continue such practices. But there is no protection for organizations that hire based on mission—not on affiliation—to continue to do so. This in effect excludes taxpayers who hold conscientious beliefs about sexuality that run counter to Obama’s from being eligible for federal contracts funded with their own tax dollars.

Federal policy on government contracts should not seek to enforce monolithic liberal secularism. Today’s order undermines our nation’s commitment to reasonable pluralism and reasonable diversity. All citizens and the groups they form should be free to exist and participate in relevant government programs according to their reasonable beliefs. The federal government should not use the tax-code and government contracting to reshape civil society on controversial moral issues that have nothing to do with the federal contract at stake.

All educational institutes, for example, that meet bona fide requirements about education (not sexuality) should be eligible for federal contracts if they fulfill the federal purpose of the program—education.

Today’s order disregards the consciences and liberties of people of goodwill who happen not to share the government’s opinions about issues of sexuality.

Previous guidelines for federal contractors prohibited discrimination on race, color, national origin, sex, and religious affiliation. These protections make sense, because race, color, national origin and sex are rarely—if ever—relevant to job performance, while religious affiliation is relevant for some religious organizations (and, as noted above, there were religious hiring exemptions). But sexual orientation and gender identity are not like race.

Indeed, sexual orientation and gender identity are unclear, ambiguous terms. They can refer to voluntary behaviors as well as thoughts and inclinations, and it is reasonable for employers to make distinctions based on actions.

By contrast, “race” and “sex” clearly refer to traits, and in the overwhelming majority of cases, these traits (unlike voluntary behaviors) do not affect fitness for any job.

Worst of all, today’s executive order is unnecessary. Voluntary market forces are already eliminating true discrimination, as making employment decisions based on non-relevant factors hurts one’s ability to compete. Indeed, the liberal Williams Institute at UCLA, which conducts research on sexual orientation and gender identity law and public policy, reports that most federal contractors do not consider sexuality:

• As of May 2014, 86 percent of the top 50 federal contractors prohibited discrimination based on sexual orientation, and 61 percent prohibited discrimination based on gender identity.
• All but two (96 percent) of the top 50 Fortune 500 companies prohibited discrimination based on sexual orientation as of May 2014, and 70 percent prohibited discrimination based on gender identity.

But the federal government should not penalize those contractors that do conscientiously judge sexual orientation or gender identity to be relevant to their mission and purpose.

In response to this executive order, Congress has an opportunity to protect religious liberty and the rights of conscience. Policy should prohibit the government from discriminating against any individual or group, whether nonprofit or for-profit, based on their beliefs that marriage is the union of a man and woman or that sexual relations are reserved for marriage. The government should be prohibited from discriminating against such groups or individuals in tax policy, employment, licensing, accreditation, or contracting.

The Marriage and Religious Freedom Act—sponsored by Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, in the House (H.R. 3133) with more than 100 co-sponsors of both parties and sponsored by Sen. Mike Lee, R – Utah, in the Senate (S. 1808) with 17 co-sponsors—would prevent the federal government from taking such adverse actions. Protecting religious liberty and the rights of conscience fosters a more diverse civil sphere. Indeed, tolerance is essential to promoting peaceful coexistence even amid disagreement.

OPINIONS ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY ARE NOT ACTS OF SUPRESSION


Those who oppose Homosexuality should be ‘ruthlessly’ stamped out
Godfather Politics – Gary DeMar – 7/25/2014

It’s shocking how 1.6 percent of the population – I’m speaking of LGBTers – are controlling our culture. Years ago they told us over and over again that a person’s choice in sex partners shouldn’t matter.

Now it seems that’s all that matters. Michael Sam feels compelled to tell the world that he has sex with other men, and he and his fellow-LGBTers demand that we accept his choice in sex partners or else.

It’s gotten so bad that a person can’t express an opinion on the subject without being assaulted through numerous media channels.

Keep in mind that where a man sticks his pxxxx is is not the same as being born with black skin. There are all types of sexual behaviors that are considered abnormal and criminal. Some people have positive opinions about them and most have negative opinions. Once immoral and irrational sexual behavior like same-sex sexuality has been “defined down,” other sexual taboos have fallen with it.

It’s already happening with pedophilia, polyandry, incest, and polygamy.
How many times have you heard LGBTers argue that love should not be forbidden? I don’t know anybody who wants to forbid or outlaw love. . . . the LBGT issue isn’t about love; it’s about legitimizing certain types of sexual behaviors, relationships, and transitions (transgenders).

Any contrary opinion can lead to dire legal complications.

WILL WISCONSIN HAVE TO CARE FOR ILLEGAL CHILDREN?






WI GOP Lawmakers:  Don’t bring undocumented children to state
Watch Dog – Adam Tobias – 7/25/2014

MADISON, Wis. — Republican State Rep. David Craig is worried about the potential for a public health crisis coming to Wisconsin.

NOT IN WISCONSIN: State Rep. David Craig and three other Republican state lawmakers have asked the federal government not to bring undocumented children to Wisconsin.

That’s one of the reasons he and three other state GOP lawmakers wrote a letter Thursday asking the Department of Homeland Security to withdraw its request for Wisconsin to shelter hundreds of undocumented children who have crossed the Mexican border illegally.

“What are we bringing into our state when we have so many diseases internationally that used to be dormant and are now on the resurgence with some strain?” Craig, R-Vernon, told Wisconsin Reporter on Friday. “Is the federal government going through any review whatsoever of the health condition of the children, given the sheer volume of children that we are talking about?”

But the health implications are unclear to some parties because the federal government is “neglecting its obligation to uphold the law while failing to provide adequate information to state officials,” according to the letter, which was also penned by Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Burlington; and state Reps. Joel Kleefisch, R-Oconomowoc, and John Nygren, R-Marinette.

Craig said interaction between the feds and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the state Department of Children and Families has been minimal.

“From what we can tell, the relationship between the federal authorities and the state authorities is basically nothing,” Craig told Wisconsin Reporter. “So, the federal government is being very secretive about all of these things.”

AMERICA: PAID FOR BY AMERICANS TO BIG CORPORATIONS AND CONGRESS



The stealing of America by Cops, Courts, Corporations and Congress
Freedom Outpost – John Whitehead – 7/24/2014

"What the government is good at is collecting taxes, taking away your freedoms and killing people. It's not good at much else." —Author Tom Clancy
 
Call it what you will—taxes, penalties, fees, fines, regulations, tariffs, tickets, permits, surcharges, tolls, asset forfeitures, foreclosures, etc.—but the only word that truly describes the constant bilking of the American taxpayer by the government and its corporate partners is theft.

We're operating in a topsy-turvy Sherwood Forest where instead of Robin Hood and his merry band of thieves stealing from the rich to feed the poor, you've got the government and its merry band of corporate thieves stealing from the poor to fatten the wallets of the rich. In this way, the poor get poorer and the rich get richer. All the while, the American Dream of peace, prosperity, and liberty has turned into a nightmare of endless wars, debilitating debt, and outright tyranny.

What Americans don't seem to comprehend is that if the government can arbitrarily take away your property, without your having much say about it, you have no true rights. You're nothing more than a serf or a slave.

In this way, the police state with all of its trappings—from surveillance cameras, militarized police, SWAT team raids, truancy and zero tolerance policies, asset forfeiture laws, privatized prisons and red light cameras to Sting Ray guns, fusion centers, drones, black boxes, hollow-point bullets, detention centers, speed traps and abundance of laws criminalizing otherwise legitimate conduct—is little more than a front for a high-dollar covert operation aimed at laundering as much money as possible through government agencies and into the bank accounts of corporations.

The rationalizations for the American police state are many. There's the so-called threat of terrorism, the ongoing Drug War, the influx of illegal immigrants, the threat of civil unrest in the face of economic collapse, etc. However, these rationalizations are merely excuses for the growth of a government behemoth, one which works hand in hand with corporations to profit from a society kept under lockdown and in fear at all times. 

Indeed, as I point out in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, the real motivating factor behind erecting a police state is not to protect the people, but to further enrich the powerful.

In sum, the American police state is a multi-billion dollar boondoggle, meant to keep the property and the resources of the American people flowing into corrupt government agencies and their corporate partners. For those with any accounting ability, it's clear that the total sum of the expenses being charged to the American taxpayer's account by the government add up to only one thing: the loss of our freedoms. It's time to seriously consider a plan to begin de-funding this beast and keeping our resources where they belong: in our communities, working for us.

ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND FUTURE CRIME IN AMERICA



Illegal Immigration and Gangs:  Someday our cities will burn because we didn’t protect our borders
Freedom Outpost – Michael Snyder – 7/23/2014

Did you know that the number of illegal immigrants that enter Texas each week is greater than the number of babies being born to citizens of that state? The mainstream media is shining the spotlight very brightly on all of the children that are coming over, and there is a reason for that. They are trying to tug on our heartstrings. But there is another part of the story that you aren't hearing much about. By refusing to protect our borders, Barack Obama has allowed hundreds of thousands of gang members to illegally enter the United States and settle in our major cities. In many communities, gang activity is already wildly out of control, and someday our cities will burn because of the foolishness of the federal government.

According to Texas state Senator Dan Patrick, illegal immigrants have been formally charged with nearly half a million crimes in his state over the past four years alone. And he also says that there are "at least 100,000 illegal immigrant gang members" living in his state right now...

Overall, there are now approximately 1.4 million gang members living in the United States according to the FBI. But that number is actually a few years old now, so the true number is undoubtedly far higher at this point.

“The National Border Patrol Council believes there to be serious security issues at the Nogales Processing Center. Agents’ hands are tied due to the policies governing the care and lodging of juveniles and this has allowed gang recruitment and activity to flourish among those being detained,” vice president of the National Border Patrol Council Shawn Moran tells Townhall. “Customs and Border Protection needs to do more to ensure that gang members that are in custody at the NPC are identified, prosecuted, and prohibited from benefiting from this crisis.”

PRESIDENT OBAMA’S EXECUTIVE ORDER TO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST CHRISTIANS


http://action.afa.net/item.aspx?id=2147547795
American Family Association - 7I/22/2014

Obama gives special protections for homosexuals, bisexuals and transsexuals, but takes away religious freedoms from Christians

On July 21, President Barack Obama delivered on his promise to expand special rights and privileges to homosexuals, and at the same time, specifically rejected repeated calls to include religious liberty exemptions for Christian-owned businesses.

His executive order is an immediate response to the U.S. Supreme Court's recent Hobby Lobby decision and the failure of Senate Majority leader Harry Reid's attempt last week to punish companies like Hobby Lobby, which practice their Christian faith in their business.

Defying the Constitution, which gives only Congress the authority to make laws, President Obama decreed that anyone who does business with the federal government must adopt written policies that specifically mandate special protections for "sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin." See OneNewsNow story here.

Obama's love affair with homosexuality will impact some 24,000 companies with 28 million workers, or one-fifth of the U.S. workforce. More alarming, his order discriminates against Christians.

What this means to you:

In most cases, the government uses private and locally-owned civilian businesses to provide services. Examples include construction companies (carpenters, plumbers, electricians, etc.), health care professions, retail vendors (Walmart, Menard's, restaurant chains), hotels and airlines.

Without an exemption, Obama is ordering Christians to embrace sin and forfeit their faith convictions if they want to have the same business opportunities as non-Christian businesses.

Obama has overstepped his authority and treats Christians as second-class citizens.

COMMON CORE - WISCONSIN GOING TO GIVE IT THE BOOT



Walker:  Repeal Common Core
Watch Dog – M. D. Kittle – 7/17/2014

That was the response late Thursday from opponents of the controversial Common Core State Standards after Gov. Scott Walker announced he wants Wisconsin to do away with the nationalized education template.
Walker’s statement was short and direct.

“Today, I call on the members of the State Legislature to pass a bill in early January to repeal Common Core and replace it with standards set by people in Wisconsin,” the governor said.

READER COMMENT: 

Those supporters of Common Core claim that Common Core is a huge improvement over the previous standards. What they're really admitting is that they really didn't do anything to improve education in Wisconsin prior to Common Core. The new bill should include input from more than just the DPI. Get real educators, not just those involved in theory, and PARENTS and the broad community involved in formulating new standards. The DPI can no longer make decisions for hundreds of thousands of children and local taxpayers paying the bill. This process must be shared along with the decision. Tony Evers, by not involving the legislature in the very beginning, has demonstrated that he and his department cannot be trusted with this very important function.

DEMOCRATS INCOMPETENT FROM PRESIDENT ON DOWN



Liberals delusional about the border
Godfather Politics – Tad Cronn – 7/16/2014

The Obama Administration is basically in free fall. The difference between this and other lame-duck administrations is that Obama has gone off road and decided that he can order everybody around like a king. And kings are all about image.
Krauthammer said, "The president has to have this (the border crisis) stopped because it contributes to the story, showing all the other elements abroad and at home that his administration is incompetent, out of control and unable to control anything."

As happens so often with Obama, his pragmatic demagoguery is at odds with his narcissism. On the one hand, political survival, even for a lame duck, would suggest that a solution is needed for the border. His narcissism and Alinskyite training, however, are pushing him to milk the crisis to get something he wants while pinning all the blame on his political enemies.
So far, his narcissism is winning.

Consequently, his flying monkeys like Reid are out casting illusions about how great things are, and the human tragedy keeps coming across our border.

Sixty votes were needed to debate the bill, which was sponsored by Sens. Patty Murray, D-Wash.,  and Mark Udall, D-Colo. However, the Senate voted 56 to 43, largely on party lines, in favor of upholding religious freedom of employers. In his prepared speech, Cruz added, “Mr. President, it saddens me that there are not 100 senators here unified, regardless of our faith, standing together protecting the religious liberty rights of everyone.” Watch the video above for his full statement.

HOMOSEXUAL POPULATION LESS THAN 3 PERCENT OVERALL



Health survey gives government its first large-scale data on gay, bisexual population

Washington Post – Sandhya Somashekhar – 7/15/2014

Less than 3 percent of the U.S. population identify themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday in the first large-scale government survey measuring Americans’ sexual orientation.

The National Health Interview Survey, which is the government’s premier tool for annually assessing Americans’ health and behaviors, found that 1.6 percent of adults self-identify as gay or lesbian, and 0.7 percent consider themselves bisexual.

The overwhelming majority of adults, 96.6 percent, labeled themselves as straight in the 2013 survey. An additional 1.1 percent declined to answer, responded “I don’t know the answer” or said they were “something else.”

DOES WASHINGTON HAVE THE WILL TO FIX AMERICA'S BORDER?



Putting aside politics in the key to stabilizing the US-Southern Border with Mexico
The Daily Signal – James Carafano – 7/16/2014

In addition to concerns over security, public health and sovereignty, the disruption of illegal migration flows at the border distracts from focusing resources on the clear and present danger of transnational criminal cartels and gangs whose tentacles reach from deep in Latin America to cities in the U.S. heartland.

Further, a properly functioning border is an economic engine that creates prosperity by promoting the free flow of goods and services. The negative consequences of border mayhem ought to be a top concern for Washington. Bringing stability to the border ought to be job one.

Step 1. DACA must go. The president’s 2012 policy for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, regardless of the Oval Office’s intent, sets a precedent that encourages further unlawful migration, particularly among minors.
Step 2. Resist the urge to throw money at the problem.

Step 3. Work within the existing budget and appropriations process.

Step 4. Facilitate expedited removal. The U.S. has much experience in the expedited removals of minors in a manner that ensures their safety and humane treatment. The 2008 law, which often is cited as restricting expedited removal of minors, was intended to combat human trafficking. The law never envisioned flows on the scale currently being experienced on the southern border. Further, although the president has authority under current law to facilitate the expedited removal of minors, the administration seems reluctant to fully exploit that authority.

Congress could send the White House a strong signal of support for expedited removal, in a safe and judicious manner, by revising the 2008 law. More importantly, the government should aggressively develop responsible agreements with countries for the expedited return of their citizens, as well as greater cooperation from Mexico in combating illegal migration pipelines from Latin America to the U.S.

Step 5. Use the tools at hand. Meeting many of the challenges for stabilizing the border can be undertaken under existing law and with the resources the president has at hand. For example, the president has the authority to deploy the military, in particular the National Guard, to the border to provide assistance and support.

DEMOCRATS LEGISLATE AGAINST THE FIRST AMENDMENT


Democrats move to outlaw Christianity
Eagle Rising – Matt Barber – 7/16/2014

The mask is off. All pretense has been dropped, and the anti-Christian left’s boundless depth of hatred for individual liberty, our First Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) is now on full display.
The meltdown continues. This week brings two new developments:

(1) Democrats in Congress have readied a legislative “Hobby Lobby fix” that stands exactly zero chance of passing and would be struck down as unconstitutional even if it did, and

(2) The ACLU, AFL-CIO, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Lambda Legal and a hodgepodge of other left-wing extremist groups have withdrawn support for the ironically tagged “Employment Non-Discrimination Act” (ENDA) the crown jewel of homofascism, because the bill’s paper-thin “religious exemption” does not adequately outlaw the practice of Christianity.

Addressing the high court’s Hobby Lobby decision last Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., fumed, “We have so much to do this month, but the one thing we’re going to do during this work period – sooner rather than later – is to ensure that women’s lives are not determined by virtue of five white men.”

“This Hobby Lobby decision is outrageous,” continued Reid, “and we’re going to do something about it.”

Well, “do something about it” they shall try. TalkingPointsMemo.com reported on legislation Democrats introduced Thursday that would do away with religious liberty protections altogether:

“The legislation also puts the kibosh on legal challenges by religious nonprofits, like Wheaton College, instead declaring that the accommodation they’re provided under the law [there is none] is sufficient to respect their religious liberties.”

This reactionary response to the Hobby Lobby ruling is, of course, little more than an election year fundraising scheme for the Democratic National Committee.

Gary Glenn is a candidate for the Michigan State House. He’s also president of AFA Michigan. Glenn has been a national leader in defense of religious liberty for well upon two decades. In an email, Glenn wrote, “The extremely limited religious exemptions typically included in discriminatory homosexual and cross-dressing ‘rights’ laws have always been mere window-dressing with no real protection or effect, as witnessed by the ongoing persecution and discrimination under such laws against Christian business owners and community organizations such as the Boy Scouts, Catholic Charities, Salvation Army, and even the United Way.

“But now that the U.S. Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision threatens to give real teeth to such exemptions, the AFL-CIO’s in-house homosexual activist group has announced it will no longer support discriminatory ‘sexual orientation’ legislation that includes even limited exemptions for religious institutions.

They’ve stopped pretending, folks. THIS IS ABOUT CRIMINALIZING CHRISTIANITY. The Hobby Lobby decision has merely made secular liberals forget themselves momentarily. It’s blown back the propagandist curtain to expose their truly sinister aims. Hobby Lobby hasn’t put the “culture war” to rest. It’s taken a gavel to the “progressive” hornets’ nest.

WHAT CAUSES RACISM IN AMERICA?



The nation of cowards and Eric Holder
Alan West – Angela Graham-West – 7/15/2014

In remarks made during a 2009 speech to honor Black History Month, Eric Holder said the country remains “voluntarily socially segregated.” Holder said,”Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot in things racial, we have always been, and we, I believe, continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards. Though race-related issues continue to occupy a significant portion of our political discussion, and though there remain many unresolved racial issues in this nation, we, average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about things racial.”

So in what way is this country a “nation of cowards” or a “racist” nation? Perhaps because no one is willing to step up and say that this nation is 13 percent black or African-American and the African-American race is well represented in the ranks of government. There is no other country on the face of this earth with or without the population representation that can make the same claim. The cowardice comes in when not one person is willing to stand up and say this simple fact.

The findings are stark: Students of color, boys and girls, are suspended at three times the rate of white students, and the disparities begin in preschool.”
So, instead of confronting the reality almost three-quarters of these children grow up in single parent households, many with scant supervision, and are simply behaving in a “bad-assed” manner, it must instead be HIDDEN RACISM. We cower away FROM TELLING THE TRUTH. Teachers second-guess themselves, hold black or African-American students to a lower standard of behavior, as the well-mannered children of all races flee the public school system, and the teachers themselves become frequently assaulted “wardens” in an asylum.

GOVERNMENT: CAN IT BE TRUSTED?


The worst trolls on the internet are the government trolls
Freedom Outpost – Michael Snyder – 7/16/2014

We have all run into them. All over the Internet, there are horrible trolls that seem to delight in making life miserable for other people. But the worst trolls of all are the government trolls. And thanks to Edward Snowden, we now have some startling new evidence of what really goes on behind the scenes. According to newly revealed documents, British spy agency GCHQ is manipulating online discussions, infiltrating the computers of specific targets, purposely destroying reputations, altering the results of online polls, and using Twitter, Facebook and YouTube for propaganda and espionage purposes. If people don’t start getting outraged about this now, the governments of the western world are going to see it as a green light to do even more. Eventually, it might get so bad that we won’t be able to trust much of anything that we see on the Internet.

But the elite have been starting to catch up to all of this new technology and are learning how to use it for their own purposes. Thanks to Snowden, we now have a list of specific tools that GCHQ has been using to manipulate the Internet. The following is a short excerpt from a recent ZDNet article about these new revelations…

A number of interesting tools and their short descriptions are below:

The rest of the world is watching all of this and they are absolutely disgusted with us. The more that we act like Nazis, the more they are going to regard us as such.
