    B.A. in Art History? That’s a little bit too ‘traditional’ for most Libgoons that I know.
    How about a B.A. in Women’s peace studies or a B.A. in Lesbian pointless micro-aggression studies? Or some other equally long-winded and thoroughly inane subject that I can’t be bothered to invent right now even for comedy purposes, but by tomorrow some useless academic will have already invented it for real and beaten me to it.

    The teacher gave her fifth grade class an assignment: Get their parents to tell them
    a story with a moral at the end of it.

    The next day, the kids came back and, one by one…began to tell their stories.

    There were all the regular types of stuff: spilled milk and pennies saved.

    But then the teacher asked Janie: “Janie, do you have a story to share?”

    ”Yes ma’am. My daddy told me a story about my Mommy. She was a Marine pilot in Desert Storm, and her plane got hit. She had to bail out over enemy territory, and all she had was a flask of whiskey, a pistol, and a survival knife. She drank the
    whiskey on the way down so the bottle wouldn’t break, and then her parachute
    landed her right in the middle of 20 Iraqi troops.

    “She shot 15 of them with the pistol, until she ran out of bullets, killed four more
    with the knife, till the blade broke, and then she killed the last Iraqi with
    her bare hands.”

    ”Good Heavens,” said the horrified teacher. “What did your Daddy tell you was the moral to this horrible story?”

    “Stay the hell away from Mommy when she’s been drinking.”

    Liberals back to their usual ‘gloom and doom’ predictions.

    “Peak food” – this one is recycled. I think it was part of the ‘population bomb’.

    NOTE that they’re claiming a ‘peak’ but admitting to only a slowdown in the rate of increase. That is not a peak.

    NOTE that they’re claiming a ‘peak’ but admitting to only a slowdown in the rate of increase. That is not a peak.

    And what’s more, they know they’re using the word falsely, they admit it:

    Peak production refers to the point at which the growth in a crop, animal or other food source begins to slow down, rather than the point at which production actually declines.

    That is NOT TRUE. Peak refers to when you’ve reached a high point and are now declining. They admit that every food source they refer to is still increasing, but at a lower rate. The likely reason has to do with demand – they ramped up production to approach demand and now that demand is generally being met the rate of increase changes to prevent oversupply.

    Liberals all too often don’t hide their ignorance – they open their mouths and prove it.

    If we fail to act, Aspen’s climate could be a lot like that of Amarillo, TX, by 2100.

    Our EPA Administrator does not understand the first thing about climate, or weather. Aspen is what it is because of where it is or, more specifically, not just it’s location (latitude) but also it’s geography, it’s elevation, along with the terrain around it.

    There is no danger, zero percent chance, that Aspen’s climate will become similar to that of Amarillo, TX. Both the respective latitudes of the cities and the respective geographies assure that can never happen.

    But, once again, she didn’t do her homework:

    The Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles on average receive much more snowfall than areas further to the east.

    While the terrain does not allow downhill skiing, you can do cross country!

    Sure, the snow does not fall as often or as heavy in Amarillo, it doesn’t stick around as long, but it does fall.

    And yes, they even have blizzards in Amarillo now and again.

    A historic blizzard on pace to become the second-snowiest event recorded in Amarillo made travel nearly impossible Monday and left some motorists stranded as emergency crews struggle to reach them, the National Weather Service in Amarillo said.

    All water is recycled. Its called the water cycle. One thing libtards dont understand is that when water is used (wasted, according to them) it goes into the ground, into other bodies of water, or into the atmosphere (evaporates) and finds its way back to the water supply as groundwater or as rain. They just refuse to get it.

    And Antarctica was once tropical. But this was as much due to plate tectonics as it was due to ‘climate change’ – the climate of Antarctica changed in part because that landmass migrated from a more tropical region to where it is today.

    Moonbats don’t know the first thing about climate or climate change – if they did they would be harder to fool.

    Zero percent might be a bit of hyperbole – after all, who’s to say WHAT might happen… 50 million years into the future. Perhaps Amarillo will be on top of some high mountain that rivals Everest, for all I know, and it will have a climate similar to that of Aspen today.

    I wonder how long it will take for the Rocky Mountains to wear themselves down and become similar to the Appalacian Mountains.

    Scandinavia is a Collectivist Paradise? Not So Much.
    A touch too much in the way of conformity, high taxes, and “benign totalitarianism”
    In the imagination of the American Left, Scandinavia, that cluster of northern European countries defined by sky-high taxes, expansive welfare policies, and seemingly limitless enthusiasm for snow-related activities, presents the ideal alternative to the rough-and-tumble of American capitalism. They’re peaceful. They’re prosperous. And they routinely dominate the top spots in global “happiness rankings.”

    Enter The Almost Nearly Perfect People: Behind the Myth of the Scandinavian Utopia, a cover-to-cover delight from English journalist Michael Booth puncturing the caricature of the region as a semi-socialist paradise. The book, which has just been published in the U.S., is especially powerful in its dissection of the culturally corrosive effects of Scandinavia’s expansive state power, which seems to “smother its people’s motivation, ambition, and spirit.”

    A full fifth of Danish adults don’t work and live exclusively on public benefits. Norwegian media is so deeply dull that one of its most popular television shows ever is—this is for real—a seven-hour real-time feed from a camera mounted on a train traversing mountains. Booth calls the prevailing Swedish political norms “benign totalitarianism.”

    Climate Change Is Real. Too Bad Accurate Climate Models Aren’t.
    The Obama Administration released a new report on global cooling global warming climate change this week, and its findings and recommendations are about what you’d expect: conservatives are stupidheads who hate Science™, so give us eleventy trillion dollars.

    Unfortunately, climate models — ones that can accurately and consistently predict global temperatures in the not-so-distant future — simply don’t exist in the present. Indeed, for a group that so nakedly appeals to the authority of “consensus,” the faith-based global warming alarmist movement is shockingly impervious to the consensus of actual data:
    http://thefederalist.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Climate-Model-Comparison-1024×921.png
    I’ll see your “95 percent of scientists believe in global warming” talking point and raise you a “95 percent of reality thinks your climate models are garbage.” According to that chart of actual satellite and surface temperature observations vs. what was predicted by 90 different climate models, 95 percent of models overestimated actual temperatures. Nothing says Science™ like predicting stuff incorrectly over and over and over again.

    And therein lies the real reason why so many global warming cultists are so desperate to change the terms of the debate. Rather than discuss the actual science, they’d rather marginalize anyone who disagrees with their policy prescriptions.

Andrew Cuomo said this afternoon that he’d like the state’s legislature to consider all options in debating new gun control measures, including “confiscation” of “assault” weapons or “mandatory sales to the state” and “permitting.”

    Cuomo’s ignorance is astonishing. The question isn’t what hunters “need” to hunt, it’s how he and his liberal gun grabbers are going to define “assault weapon.” Just about any rifle could fall under some definitions of “assault weapon” which only makes it easier to get guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens.

    The governor then laid out several ideas for how the state would enforce stricter laws on those so-called “assault” weapons: “Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option – keep your gun but permit it,” he said.

    “Mandatory sales to the state?” What’s the difference between that and confiscation? A few dollars doesn’t matter as far as the principle of the state being able to seize the property of law abiding citizens.

    Cuomo Says He’ll Outline Gun Proposal Next Month
    Mr. Cuomo, speaking on WGDJ-AM, said gun control had not recently been among the most discussed topics in the capital, so he had reached out to lawmakers to gauge where they stood before he made his proposals final.

    In the interview, Mr. Cuomo did not offer specifics about the measures he might propose, but, while discussing assault weapons, he said: “Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it.”

    Why Islam Needs a Reformation
    To defeat the extremists for good, Muslims must reject those aspects of their tradition that prompt some believers to resort to oppression and holy war
    “Islam’s borders are bloody,” wrote the late political scientist Samuel Huntington in 1996, “and so are its innards.” Nearly 20 years later, Huntington looks more right than ever before. According to the International Institute for Strategic Studies, at least 70% of all the fatalities in armed conflicts around the world last year were in wars involving Muslims. In 2013, there were nearly 12,000 terrorist attacks world-wide. The lion’s share were in Muslim-majority countries, and many of the others were carried out by Muslims. By far the most numerous victims of Muslim violence—including executions and lynchings not captured in these statistics—are Muslims themselves.

    Mohammed Image Archive
    Depictions of Mohammed Throughout History

    The Mohammed Image Archive is a compendium of images that depict Mohammed (the 7th-century founder of Islam), spanning all historical periods, cultures and genres.
    The inspiration for this Archive came from the global controversy over the publication of Mohammed cartoons in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten, and the need for a comprehensive and even-handed look at the wide variety of Mohammed depictions in Islamic and Western societies from the Middle Ages until today. It will remain online as a resource for those interested in freedom of expression. (Please note that the Arabic name “Mohammed” has over the years been transliterated into Western languages with several different spellings — some of which you’ll encounter on this site — including Mahomet, Muhammad, and Mohamed.)

    The images in the Mohammed Image Archive have been divided into the following categories; click on these links to view the images in each section:

    Islamic Depictions of Mohammed in Full

    Islamic Depictions of Mohammed with Face Hidden

    European Medieval and Renaissance Images

    Miscellaneous Mohammed Images

    Dante’s Inferno

    Book Illustrations

    Book Covers

    Satirical Modern Cartoons

    I believe that liberty is the only genuinely valuable thing that men have invented, at least in the field of government, in a thousand years. I believe that it is better to be free than to be not free, even when the former is dangerous and the latter safe. I believe that the finest qualities of man can flourish only in free air – that progress made under the shadow of the policeman’s club is false progress, and of no permanent value. I believe that any man who takes the liberty of another into his keeping is bound to become a tyrant, and that any man who yields up his liberty, in however slight the measure, is bound to become a slave. — H.L.

    Bin Laden had the book on Obama
    What should we make of the bookshelf? Above all, it confirms that bin Laden was obsessed with the United States. Unlike ISIS, which strives to capture territory and create a caliphate, bin Laden focused on attacking America and American interests.

    But attacking America wasn’t an end in itself. Bin Laden’s overriding goal was to drive the U.S. out of the Muslim world so that al Qaeda and its affiliates could topple hostile governments in these regions.

    Once we understand this, we must see bin Laden as more of a success than a failure. And we must see President Obama as the vehicle through which bin Laden succeeded.

    Wait, you’re telling me the government can just come in and take my stuff? – Hot Air http://hotair.com/archives/2015/05/21/wait-youre-telling-me-the-government-can-just-come-in-and-take-my-stuff/

    Wait, you’re telling me the government can just come in and take my stuff?
    On Monday, FreedomWorks and the Center for American Progress (CAP) joined forces to invite bloggers, writers, and some think-tank analysts for a daylong conference on justice reform. One of the aspects I liked about the conference is that it shows on some issues the left and right can agree. It’s disconcerting that we’ve gradually lost the ability to have a conversation with one another–the Indiana RFRA fiasco is a result of this decay in public discourse. So, it didn’t end like the Red Wedding­; it didn’t even turn out like the end of Gangs of New York. In fact, despite our political differences, we found out that we actually agree a lot on the issues regarding mandatory minimums and civil asset forfeiture, which desperately need reform.

    According to the Heritage Foundation, civil asset forfeiture is “a legal tool that allows law enforcement officials to seize property that they assert has been involved in certain criminal activity.” Julie Borowski, a former analyst at Freedomworks, gave a thorough presentation on what some call legalized theft (yes, I know some consider taxes to fall into the same category).

    The mantra for those who support this legal tool in our justice system can be best described by former President George H.W. Bush who said, “ Asset forfeiture laws allow [the government] to take the alleged ill-gotten gains of drug kingpins and use them to put more cops on the streets.” Yet, it places the burden of proof on the property owner, which is a perversion of justice.

    Party of Science: Young People, When Polled, Estimate The Number of Gay People In Society at… 30%
    I heard this “three in ten” claim one time, and I laughed at it. Even one-in-ten is too high by a factor of 3-5.

    But there’s our very educated Millennials for ya!

    By the way, I keep hearing the Millennials are “very educated.” And they don’t mean that ironically.

    They mean, of course, that they go to college at higher rates than previous generations, and then waste more time pursuing make-work masters in nonproductive fields.

    But seriously: Are they even close to “very educated”?

    Bin Laden had the book on Obama – Power Line http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2015/05/bin-laden-had-the-book-on-obama.php via @powerlineus

    Bin Laden had the book on Obama
    What should we make of the bookshelf? Above all, it confirms that bin Laden was obsessed with the United States. Unlike ISIS, which strives to capture territory and create a caliphate, bin Laden focused on attacking America and American interests.

    But attacking America wasn’t an end in itself. Bin Laden’s overriding goal was to drive the U.S. out of the Muslim world so that al Qaeda and its affiliates could topple hostile governments in these regions.

    Once we understand this, we must see bin Laden as more of a success than a failure. And we must see President Obama as the vehicle through which bin Laden succeeded.

    Wait, you’re telling me the government can just come in and take my stuff? – Hot Air http://hotair.com/archives/2015/05/21/wait-youre-telling-me-the-government-can-just-come-in-and-take-my-stuff/

    Wait, you’re telling me the government can just come in and take my stuff?
    On Monday, FreedomWorks and the Center for American Progress (CAP) joined forces to invite bloggers, writers, and some think-tank analysts for a daylong conference on justice reform. One of the aspects I liked about the conference is that it shows on some issues the left and right can agree. It’s disconcerting that we’ve gradually lost the ability to have a conversation with one another–the Indiana RFRA fiasco is a result of this decay in public discourse. So, it didn’t end like the Red Wedding­; it didn’t even turn out like the end of Gangs of New York. In fact, despite our political differences, we found out that we actually agree a lot on the issues regarding mandatory minimums and civil asset forfeiture, which desperately need reform.

    According to the Heritage Foundation, civil asset forfeiture is “a legal tool that allows law enforcement officials to seize property that they assert has been involved in certain criminal activity.” Julie Borowski, a former analyst at Freedomworks, gave a thorough presentation on what some call legalized theft (yes, I know some consider taxes to fall into the same category).

    The mantra for those who support this legal tool in our justice system can be best described by former President George H.W. Bush who said, “ Asset forfeiture laws allow [the government] to take the alleged ill-gotten gains of drug kingpins and use them to put more cops on the streets.” Yet, it places the burden of proof on the property owner, which is a perversion of justice.

    Party of Science: Young People, When Polled, Estimate The Number of Gay People In Society at… 30%
    I heard this “three in ten” claim one time, and I laughed at it. Even one-in-ten is too high by a factor of 3-5.

    But there’s our very educated Millennials for ya!

    By the way, I keep hearing the Millennials are “very educated.” And they don’t mean that ironically.

    They mean, of course, that they go to college at higher rates than previous generations, and then waste more time pursuing make-work masters in nonproductive fields.

    But seriously: Are they even close to “very educated”?

    The Emma Sulkowicz Generation | RedState http://www.redstate.com/2015/05/21/emma-sulkowicz-generation/

    The Emma Sulkowicz Generation
    Columbia University recently held its commencement ceremonies, which gives us all another reason to talk about one of the worst people in America, Emma Sulkowicz. For those who are unfamiliar with this particular sordid tale, Emma Sulkowicz was a Columbia university student who claimed that she was brutally raped by a friend named Paul Nungesser. There was only one one problem with Sulkowicz’s tale – it was manifest and absolute bulls***, as detailed by a lengthy and thorough Daily Beast article which pointed out the numerous inconsistencies and implausibilities in Sulkowicz’s tale, along with Sulkowicz’ reticence to be forthcoming in response to Nungesser’s offers of proof that the rape never occurred.

    But, in keeping with the Churchill adage that a lie gets halfway around the world before the truth gets its pants on, Emma Sulkowicz became a hero to the generation that was raised without critical thinking skills before the dust had settled 0n any sort of actual investigation into her claims.
    […]
    The real tragedy here is the way this generation processes this information and treats it as though it is irrelevant. Even if you believe that black men are disproportionately the recipients of excessive force by police (probable) or that credible rape victims are routinely ignored by institutions of power (dubious), the actual question of whether Emma Sulkowicz was raped by Paul Nungesser or whether Darren Wilson was actually justified in shooting Michael Brown matter, for at least two reasons.

    First, the stories told by Sulkowicz on the one hand and the friends of Michael Brown on the other, have real life consequences for actual people. The lives of Paul Nungesser and Darren Wilson have been irrevocably altered – possibly forever – by the casual slander of people who are trying to sell an agenda.

    Second, in both cases, there are actual, real life people who really do face the injustices in question – and pushing a dubious narrative on behalf of a cause makes it more difficult for those victims to have their stories believed by an increasingly skeptical public. The unraveling of the “Hands up, don’t shoot” narrative made people primed to disbelieve that the police did anything wrong in the case of Eric Garner, or to believe the police were justified in shooting Walter Scott repeatedly in the back, or that Freddie Gray probably somehow broke his own spine. Similarly, the Crystal Mangums, Trelana Brawneys, Jackie from UVA and Emma Sulkowiczs of the world have made it easier for actual rapists to get away with their crimes – because when a public celebrity’s rape narrative falls apart, it lends credence to the suggestion that rape claims are fabricated on a routine basis.

    Facts, as they say, are stubborn things. And regardless of the fervent wishes of this narrative-driven generation, they still matter. And the folks who are responsible for attempting to create these narratives had better learn to respect them, or accept the marginalization of their causes to the corners of the Internet echo chambers they inhabit.

    Green cards, the next phase in changing USSA https://shar.es/1ryVyV via @sharethis

    Green cards, the next phase in changing USSA
    When you want to fundamentally transform America, but make it gradual, green cards can help. Granted, public education is a great tool helping us, the people, to un-learn the Constitution, but foreigners are even better because they already don’t know the Constitution. Not knowing their rights as citizens makes foreign workers and peasants a lot more tractable. Some of them don’t speak English and most can’t read cursive, which is what the Constitution was originally written in.

    It is a simple way to transition from constitution to communism. We need results much quicker and the foreign league will get us there. The individualistic American culture is foreign to foreigners and with the way things stand now, they won’t be allowed to learn it. Marx willing, ten years later we’ll all be speaking a foreign language and all that our new American workers and peasants will ever know about the Constitution is that it’s some obscure foreign document written in a forgotten cursive.

    Progress is moving rapidly and Next Tuesday is ever so closer. – See more at: http://thepeoplescube.com/peoples-blog/green-cards-the-next-phase-in-changing-ussa-t16359.html

    The 2016 political report: Walker emerges from Southern confab as GOP front-runner

    The 2016 political report: Walker emerges from Southern confab as GOP front-runner
    OKLAHOMA CITY — The annual Southern Republican Leadership Conference provided a glimpse into the state of the Republican base and the presidential field.

    The conference revealed a Republican base that is (1) broadly happy with the crowded and conservative field, (2) still smitten with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and (3) unimpressed and uninterested in Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

    Senate chaos over the Patriot Act kept the four senators who are running from making it, dampening the mood a bit.

    The candidates running a second time — Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, and Mike Huckabee — do not excite the conservative base.

    Also, it was evident from the speakers and the attendees that defense and national security have returned to the forefront of the Republican mind.
    Straw Poll: The straw poll results mostly reflected Scott Walker’s popularity, and the apprehension the Republican base has for Jeb Bush and Chris Christie, the perceived establishment moderates in the field.

    1) Dr. Ben Carson won the straw poll handily, thanks to his having the biggest organized effort. His campaign bought a booth and bought 100 tickets, to allow supporters to attend for free. Many of these supporters came in from out of state. All told, Carson won about 240 votes.

    2) The biggest winner may have been Wisconsin Gov. Walker, who finished a close second, with about 200 votes. He had no organized effort to win the straw poll, but he still won the most votes among Oklahomans in the crowd. His Friday afternoon speech was spot-on and well delivered. His strong showing reflects that the good will Walker garnered through his fights in Madison, Wis., sill buoy him, even after other conservative stars have entered the race.

    Bernie Sanders: ‘Don’t underestimate me’
    Sanders, who identifies with democratic socialism, has called for action to reduce income inequality and says the nation’s wealthiest should pay more taxes. He said that he’s willing to sacrifice some economic growth in order to even the playing field.

    “You can’t just continue growth for the sake of growth in a world in which we are struggling with climate change and all kinds of environmental problems,” he said.

    “You don’t necessarily need a choice of 23 underarm spray deodorants or of 18 different pairs of sneakers when children are hungry in this country.”

    Hey, let’s create a national database of gun owners! – Hot Air http://hotair.com/archives/2015/05/24/hey-lets-create-a-national-database-of-gun-owners/

    Hey, let’s create a national database of gun owners!
    There’s one refrain which the Democrat choir always breaks out whenever they propose new gun restrictions: Oh, we’re not trying to establish some national registry of gun owners. Perish the thought! But when you look under the covers of these various proposals, they all seem to come suspiciously close to doing just that. (Not that we’re suggesting anything here, mind you. Perish the thought.) And yet that same discussion has arisen once again now that Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney has resurrected the prospect of “closing loopholes” at gun shows. Funny how that works, eh?
    At Bearing Arms, Bob Owens connects the dots.

    Maloney claims her bill would specifically target the individual seller… but it does so in ways that she’d rather hide.

    You’ll note that the “Let’s Build An Illegal Database Of Gun Owners Bill” (which is what Maloney’s legislation should really be called) would require that the transfer of private property from one individual to another be reported to one of the most politicized and abused offices in the executive branch, the Attorney General.

    Consider how easy it is for the states with restrictive, anti-gun laws to assemble such data. In New York, it was recently revealed through a Freedom of Information request that the state government had assembled a list of more than 38K people who were “at risk” for owning guns because they had received mental health care. (Though not having been accused of any crime in most cases.) The newspaper which uncovered the story was then able to compare that to a list of pistol permit holders in the state and came up with a few hundred matches. Where did they get that second list?

    At some point the Democrats need to simply come clean and admit that even state by state lists of gun owners are either showing up or will eventually show up in the the hands of the federal government. This is not a bug in the system… it’s a feature. And continuing to deny it turns a very important constitutional rights discussion into a clown show.

    Bernie Sanders: A 90% tax rate sounds fine to me – Hot Air http://hotair.com/archives/2015/05/26/bernie-sanders-a-90-tax-rate-sounds-fine-to-me/

    Bernie Sanders: A 90% tax rate sounds fine to me
    This week Vermont Senator and self-avowed socialist Bernie Sanders sat down with CNBC’s John Harwood for an interview on the issues facing all the 2016 candidates. Sanders is technically running for President, and is at least keeping up the public appearance of being serious. (He told Harwood, I think we got a shot to win this thing.) With that in mind, I suppose it’s worth taking a moment to examine some of his answers and remind everyone exactly what’s lurking under the covers of the deep left wing of the Democrats.

    While it may seem like a bit of a dog bites man story, Democrats are renowned for being in love with higher taxes. How does Bernie measure up on that score?

    HARWOOD: When you think about 90 percent, you don’t think that’s obviously too high?

    SANDERS: No. That’s not 90 percent of your income, you know? That’s the marginal. I’m sure you have some really right-wing nut types, but I’m not sure that every very wealthy person feels that it’s the worst thing in the world for them to pay more in taxes, to be honest with you. I think you’ve got a lot of millionaires saying, “You know what? I’ve made a whole lot of money. I don’t want to see kids go hungry in America. Yeah, I’ll pay my fair share.”

    A ninety percent tax rate. Think about that for a moment. Even the worst tax and spenders in the mainstream of the Democrat Party would never say that aloud, but Bernie Sanders at least can boast of the virtue of honesty. He’s willing to have the government come and take ninety cents out of every dollar you earn if you commit the sin of being too successful in modern America. I’m the first to admit that I’ve expressed many doubts about the practical effectiveness of the Laffer Curve in real world economics, but I’m confident that 90% falls pretty far down the starboard side of that one.

    10 questions with Bernie Sanders
    Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont is the only self-described socialist in Congress. Now he is mounting a long-shot bid for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination against former Senate colleague Hillary Rodham Clinton, who served most recently as secretary of state.
    [..]
    HARWOOD: After the revolution, what does it look like? What do you see happening to the 1 percent?

    SANDERS: What is my dream? My dream is, do we live in a country where 70 percent, 80 percent, 90 percent of the people vote? Where we have serious discourse on media rather than political gossip, by the way? Where we’re debating trade policy, we’re debating foreign policy, we’re debating economic policy, where the American people actually know what’s going on in Congress? Ninety-nine percent of all new income generated today goes to the top 1 percent. Top one-tenth of 1 percent owns as much as wealth as the bottom 90 percent. Does anybody think that that is the kind of economy this country should have? Do we think it’s moral? So to my mind, if you have seen a massive transfer of wealth from the middle class to the top one-tenth of 1 percent, you know what, we’ve got to transfer that back if we’re going to have a vibrant middle class. And you do that in a lot of ways. Certainly one way is tax policy.

    HARWOOD: Have you seen some of the quotations from people on Wall Street, people in business? Some have even likened the progressive Democratic crusade to Hitler’s Germany hunting down the Jews.

    SANDERS: It’s sick. And I think these people are so greedy, they’re so out of touch with reality, that they can come up and say that. They think they own the world.

    HARWOOD: When you think about 90 percent, you don’t think that’s obviously too high?

    SANDERS: No. That’s not 90 percent of your income, you know? That’s the marginal. I’m sure you have some really right-wing nut types, but I’m not sure that every very wealthy person feels that it’s the worst thing in the world for them to pay more in taxes, to be honest with you. I think you’ve got a lot of millionaires saying, “You know what? I’ve made a whole lot of money. I don’t want to see kids go hungry in America. Yeah, I’ll pay my fair share.”

    HARWOOD: If the changes that you envision in tax policy, in finance, breaking up the banks, were to result in a more equitable distribution of income, but less economic growth, is that trade-off worth making?

    SANDERS: Yes. If 99 percent of all the new income goes to the top 1 percent, you could triple it, it wouldn’t matter much to the average middle class person. The whole size of the economy and the GDP doesn’t matter if people continue to work longer hours for low wages and you have 45 million people living in poverty. You can’t just continue growth for the sake of growth in a world in which we are struggling with climate change and all kinds of environmental problems. All right? You don’t necessarily need a choice of 23 underarm spray deodorants or of 18 different pairs of sneakers when children are hungry in this country. I don’t think the media appreciates the kind of stress that ordinary Americans are working on. People scared to death about what happens tomorrow. Half the people in America have less than $10,000 in savings. How do you like that? That means you have an automobile accident, you have an illness, you’re broke. How do you retire if you have less than $10,000, and you don’t have much in the way of Social Security?

    Seven Reasons To Hope For America
    GrassTopsUSA Exclusive Commentary

    But there’s still more cause for comfort than despair. “Let not your heart be troubled.” Here are seven reasons to hope for America.

    1. There’s an explosion of conservative activism – According to the latest Gallup poll, 38% of Americans are self-identified conservatives, against only 24% who call themselves liberals, and 34% moderates.

    Even after six and a half years of the most dogmatically leftist administration in our history, with a mainstream media shamelessly pimping for its policies and Hollywood casting conservatives as a cross between Hannibal Lecter and Elmer Gantry – well over a third of Americans say they’re conservatives, against slightly less than one-quarter who call themselves liberals (doubtless, most with post-graduate liberal arts degrees or Obama phones).

    At the grassroots, the movement has never been stronger. Those with a passionate commitment to life, marriage, border security, Second Amendment rights, the free market and fighting jihad are energized and mobilized. The National Rifle Association has 4.5 million members – compared to 300,000 for People for the American Way. The National Right to Life Committee has more than 3,000 chapters.

    Seven Reasons To Hope For America
    GrassTopsUSA Exclusive Commentary

    But there’s still more cause for comfort than despair. “Let not your heart be troubled.” Here are seven reasons to hope for America.

    1. There’s an explosion of conservative activism – According to the latest Gallup poll, 38% of Americans are self-identified conservatives, against only 24% who call themselves liberals, and 34% moderates.

    Even after six and a half years of the most dogmatically leftist administration in our history, with a mainstream media shamelessly pimping for its policies and Hollywood casting conservatives as a cross between Hannibal Lecter and Elmer Gantry – well over a third of Americans say they’re conservatives, against slightly less than one-quarter who call themselves liberals (doubtless, most with post-graduate liberal arts degrees or Obama phones).

    At the grassroots, the movement has never been stronger. Those with a passionate commitment to life, marriage, border security, Second Amendment rights, the free market and fighting jihad are energized and mobilized. The National Rifle Association has 4.5 million members – compared to 300,000 for People for the American Way. The National Right to Life Committee has more than 3,000 chapters.

    Rush Limbaugh has a weekly audience of 13.25 million. Sean Hannity has 12.5 million. There is 7 million each for The Glenn Beck Program and The Mark Levin Show, and 5.25 million for The Savage Nation. The only liberal talk-show in Talkers magazine’s list of most-listened-to radio programs is Thom Hartman, with a weekly audience of 2 million.

    Heil Hillary: A Collectivist Greeting

    http://thepeoplescube.com/peoples_resource/image/34414
    Dearest Comrades,

    As I study the early foundations of The Cube, I am discovering a wealth of information that has been lost to time. For example, once upon a time, at the Dawn of the Cube, a greeting was commonly used by those collectivist pioneers, our forebears. It was in reverence of our soon-to-be Many Titted Empress, Her Majesty Hillary.

    I am not certain of its origin or author, but I like it. Comrades, it is time we reinstate this custom of greeting one another with a phrase befitting of a collective that is privileged enough to be led by the Glorious Hillary. It should be our duty and our honor to demonstrate our groupthink by using and requiring others to greet us in this way. This will ensure that we are all of one accord, and that no dissention will arise among us.

    Now, without further ado, I give to you the latest incarnation of our devotion to the Party, our provider and protector. Let us all show our gratitude to the Party and its selfless leadership with the greeting: HEIL HILLARY!™ This simple phrase speaks volumes about our state of mind, as well as our opinion of the state itself. Your comrades will notice your zeal, or lack thereof when using this obligatory greeting, so say it like you mean it, OR ELSE!

    HEIL HILLARY!™ – See more at: http://thepeoplescube.com/peoples-blog/heil-hillary-a-collectivist-greeting-t16364.html

    Federal appeals court deals blow to President Obama’s amnesty
    A federal appeals court upheld an injunction against President Obama’s new deportation in a ruling Tuesday that marks the second major legal setback for an administration that had insisted its actions were legal.

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled in favor of Texas, which had sued to stop the amnesty, on all key points, finding that Mr. Obama’s amnesty likely broke the law governing how big policies are to be written.

    “The public interest favors maintenance of the injunction,” the judges wrote in the majority opinion.

    Bernie Sanders Stinks
    If you’ve ever suspected that the next President of the United States isn’t a big fan of personal hygiene, you are absolutely correct.

    Here’s a tidbit from Grandpa Simpson Bernie Sanders today, ranting about his usual stuff to CNBC’s John Harwood:

    You can’t just continue growth for the sake of growth in a world in which we are struggling with climate change and all kinds of environmental problems. All right? You don’t necessarily need a choice of 23 underarm spray deodorants or of 18 different pairs of sneakers when children are hungry in this country.

    Damn right.

    Hey, you. Yes, you over there. Why did you put on deodorant today? Come on, man, don’t lie to me. I can smell it on you.

    Can’t you see all those hungry children? Don’t you realize you’re just a cog in a capitalist machine that makes money by cranking out products you want or “need”? Every time you freshen up those pits, you’re literally stealing food from helpless babies.

    There should be a single, solitary, government-approved deodorant. Or better yet, none at all. Forget about all the jobs that the deodorant industry has created. Those people should be feeding the children, not just their children.

    “You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in their struggle for independence.”

    “A nation can survive its fools, even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves against those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”

    The Law of Unintended Consequences Hits Liberals Again – Power Line http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2015/05/the-law-of-unintended-consequences-strikes-again.php via @powerlineus

    The Law of Unintended Consequences Hits Liberals Again
    We’ve noted here many times the economic illiteracy of the minimum wage, and even the media are picking up on the perverse effects the $15 minimum wage is having on low-margin businesses such as San Francisco comics shops or fast food restaurants installing touch screens to replace counter clerks (and how long before we have robotic burger flippers?), but this won’t deter liberals.

    When I explain to students the 1923 case of Adkins v. Children’s Hospital, the case where the Supreme Court rightly struck down Washington DC’s minimum wage, it is easy to get students to realize that the standard line about this case—that it is an example of an ideological Court in thrall to some cartoonish laissez faire doctrine of unlimited individual liberty—is completely wrong. For one thing, the minimum wage only applied to women, in occupations such as operating a hotel elevator that were not in any way hazardous to their health or safety, thus failing the “police power” test that upheld many other kinds of labor regulations going back into the 19th century. The effect of having a minimum wage for women but not for men was obvious—it resulted in the loss of employment opportunities for women, since you could hire a man for the same job at half the cost. (It is amusing, by the way, to watch liberals and especially feminist legal scholars strain to attack a ruling that upheld women’s equality in the workplace. The contortions are fantastic and hilarious.) This is no more than a price-fixing law, the Court ruled. (For more from the opinion, see below.*)

    This is all a long preface to a story in today’s New York Times about how—surprise, surprise!—politically-mandated “family friendly” policies are backfiring everywhere, and reducing wages and employment opportunities for women.

    Hillary Clinton: We need to redefine what free speech means https://shar.es/1rTH9r via @sharethis

    Hillary Clinton: We need to redefine what free speech means
    Hillary Clinton released an announcement over Memorial Day weekend on her Facebook page, saying that what we may think of as “free speech” can be hurtful towards other Americans, and we should put more effort into monitoring what we and others say to avoid painful dialogues, especially on the Internet.

    “There is a problem in this country when people, mostly right-wing bigots, can easily inflict pain and suffering on others with hurtful words and objections against alternative lifestyles and political stances. You often see it on Facebook and other forms of social media, where they are constantly spewing hate and intolerance. I wish I could tell you just how many times I’ve read mean-spirited posts about me on the Internet, and I can assure you that when I become President, things like that will no longer be allowed to happen. I already have a list of people, thousands of names, who will feel my righteous wrath when I take office.”

    It remains unclear how exactly the 2016 presidential hopeful is planning to “redefine” free speech.

    Soon after Mrs. Clinton’s comment was posted, it sparked so much controversy and it was quickly removed from her timeline, but this didn’t stop the flood of approving comments from page followers, most of whom used Clinton’s ‘H’ logo as their profile picture.

    http://thepeoplescube.com/peoples_resource/image/34438
    STAGE 1: Identify the issue.
    Any Progressive can make an issue out of anything. That’s the Power of the People! Just name it and blame Republicans. Many issues never go beyond Stage 1 because they are so readily and widely embraced by the masses. Examples include free cell phones, free gas, and free Obama money from his stash. Whatever the issue, throw it at the wall and don’t worry if it doesn’t stick—there are at least six more ways to make sure it does!
    STAGE 2: Promote the issue.
    Exhort media minions to give saturation coverage to the latest issue, to build consensus, create buzz and subsequently demand.
    STAGE 3: Say it’s a MORAL issue.
    And who among us wants to be immoral? Don’t we all want to do the right thing? The correct thing? All we want to do is help people so they can live better lives—what’s wrong with that? It’s moral, isn’t it? Somewhere down the line, there are supposed to be grand and glorious rewards for being moral, for without them, who would bother?
    STAGE 4: Declare the issue a CRISIS!
    Sometimes Progressives will skip over the first three stages to Stage 4, in which case, this is where it really starts. You don’t get anything through Congress or the courts simply by saying it’s “nice to have.” No. It is a CRISIS! Lives are in danger! Planet is in peril! Time is running out! We must start taking steps to begin taking action NOW!

    A crisis receives even more funding, and the establishment of a government agency to impose regulations that will eventually bring it under control—but only as long as funding continues and keeps pace with inflation.
    STAGE 5: Call it a HEALTH issue!
    All we want to do is help people. All we want to do is help them make better decisions, the right choices, so they can live healthy, happy, productive lives without fear of death, disease, or destruction. How can anyone with an ounce of compassion be against that?
    STAGE 6: Enshrine it as a CIVIL RIGHTS issue!
    Nothing shuts down dissent like calling it a civil rights issue, because anyone who opposes anything to do with civil rights can be labeled a bigot, a hater, or any kind of phobe. Civil rights always trump all other rights, and this allows us to shame the haters and bigots and make them feel like the outcasts they are, on the extreme fringe, the wrong side of history!
    STAGE 7: Dammit! Can’t you people see the crisis is not just a moral issue or a health issue or a question of civil rights? It’s a matter of NATIONAL SECURITY!
    To not treat it as a matter of National Security is, as President Obama recently told graduates of the Coast Guard Academy, a “dereliction of duty.” Members of the military can be court-martialed for it. Under conditions of war, they may be executed for it.

    When something is declared a matter of National Security, anyone who does not treat it as such is willfully endangering millions of lives and the future of the entire planet. They are seditious. They are enemies of the State. They are guilty of treason and crimes against humanity. Therefore, they must forfeit all. We kept warning them millions would die, didn’t we?
    Throw them against the wall. Don’t worry if they don’t stick. This time, we want them to drop to the ground.

    And don’t forget to blame Republicans. – See more at: http://thepeoplescube.com/peoples-blog/7-stages-of-the-progressive-agenda-t16369.html

    Stop unfairly asking what Hillary Clinton accomplished as Secretary of State – Hot Air http://hotair.com/archives/2015/05/27/stop-unfairly-asking-what-hillary-clinton-accomplished-as-secretary-of-state/

    Stop unfairly asking what Hillary Clinton accomplished as Secretary of State
    The unfair treatment of Hillary Clinton, brought about simply because the poor woman wants to be President, simply has to stop. All of these pestering questions, one after another, are obviously signs of hatred from people who are jealous of her many accomplishments. Or at least that’s the current line of defense being taken by the Ready for Hillary camp these days. But what were those accomplishments again? As Legal Insurrection points out, that’s an unfair question which is only being brought up by the aforementioned haters.

    Expecting a Commander in Chief to have some kind of accomplishments that show their qualifications before getting hired for the job is reasonable, right? Maybe, just not if those accomplishments happened while serving has the head of the State Department, according to U.S. News and World Report’s Susan Milligan.

    On Hardball with Chris Matthews’ Milligan said the question posed to the Iowa Democratic panel was “unfair.”

    “I think most people could not look at a Secretary of State and point to an accomplishment. Frankly, mostly what a Secretary of State does is keep something from becoming a massive crisis so, that in a way wasn’t a terribly fair question,” said Milligan.

    Chris Matthews helpfully agreed with Ms. Milligan, noting that Barack Obama didn’t really have any serious accomplishments to point to when he was elected either. Point taken, sir.

    Jorge Ramos Admits to Ann Coulter: Bring All of Mexico to Live Here
    After Ramos said he thinks “diversity” is “fantastic” and “beautiful,” Coulter wrapped the full segment with a question of her own for him.

    “We have taken in one quarter of the entire Mexican population,” Coulter asked him. “At what point will we have taken in enough, in your view?”

    That’s where Ramos made his stunning admission.

    “I think that with the legal system—“ he started to answer.

    “Half the Mexican population? The entire Mexican population?” Coulter kept pressing.

    “No, I think with the legal system we wouldn’t need and we wouldn’t be having hundreds of people dying crossing the border,” Ramos replied.

    “That isn’t an answer to the question,” Coulter corrected him. “One quarter of the Mexican population. How much more do we have to take?”

    Ramos dodged again, essentially admitting he supports no limit whatsoever.

    “It’s an economic situation,” he said. “As long as you have people here who need immigrants and workers and as long as you have workers needing a job, they’re going to be coming here. It’s an economic situation.”

    Ramos wrapped the interview at that point.

    ‘Gun shop’ wasn’t only thing fake in CeaseFire ‘social experiment’ PSA
    Per my report published Friday at The Shooter’s Log, actors were used to portray customers in a fake gun shop “public service announcement” produced by States United Against Gun Violence. That information comes from the New York City Mayor’s Office of Media in its response to a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request submitted in March. Additionally, all replica firearms used were evidently “authorized” without official documentation to ensure legality and inventory accountability.

    “Actors are interviewed on camera in a fake gun store,” the permits’ scene descriptions reveal. It had previously been known that the “gun store proprietor” behind the counter was an actor — and one who has previously made a living glorifying fake “gun violence” — but up until now, speculation on if the “customers” were also plants has been just that. By presenting their “PSA” as a “social experiment” recorded by “hidden cameras,” viewers have been encouraged to conclude that minds were changed about buying a gun based on CeaseFire’s compelling arguments against owning them.

    Elizabeth Warren Bought Foreclosed Homes to Make a Quick Profit http://bit.ly/1LHlKY2

    Elizabeth Warren Bought Foreclosed Homes to Make a Quick Profit
    Before the crash that she blamed on speculators, Senator Elizabeth Warren made a bundle by flipping houses.
    Nearly two years after Veo Vessels died, her daughter, 70-year-old Mary Frances Hickman, decided to sell the home her mother had left to her. A sprawling brick house in Oklahoma City’s historic Highland Park neighborhood, it was built in 1924, just a year after Mary’s birth.
    […]
    The home’s new owner: Elizabeth Warren, today a Massachusetts senator who has built a political career on denouncing the sort of banking titans and financial sophisticates who make a buck off the little guy. Five months after purchasing Veo Vessels’ old home, Warren flipped the property, selling it for $115,000 more than she’d paid, according to Oklahoma County Property Assessor records.

    Warren rose to political prominence in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis as a crusader against big banks and a dispenser of common-sense economic advice. She campaigned for the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, intended to shield people from the predations of the mortgage and credit-card industries, among others. In her 2006 book All Your Worth, co-authored with her daughter, Amelia, Warren lists as a top myth the idea that “you can make big money buying houses and flipping them quickly.” She has made a career out of telling people how to behave in financially responsible ways, and out of creating laws that will make it illegal for them to do otherwise.

    But Warren bought and sold at least five properties for profit at a different time in her life, before the cratering economy and a political career made her a star.

    150 Million Adults Worldwide Would Migrate to the U.S.
    Potential migrants most likely to be Chinese, Nigerian, and Indian
    WASHINGTON, D.C. — About 13% of the world’s adults — or more than 640 million people — say they would like to leave their country permanently. Roughly 150 million of them say they would like to move to the U.S. — giving it the undisputed title as the world’s most desired destination for potential migrants since Gallup started tracking these patterns in 2007.
    http://content.gallup.com/origin/gallupinc/GallupSpaces/Production/Cms/POLL/_juqmrwi4eaguwkusefrxa.gif
    n addition to the nearly one in 30 adults worldwide who would like to permanently relocate to the U.S., large numbers are attracted to the United Kingdom (45 million), Canada (42 million), France (32 million), and Saudi Arabia (31 million).

    Gallup’s latest findings on adults’ desire to move to other countries are based on a rolling average of interviews with 452,199 adults in 151 countries between 2009 and 2011. The 151 countries represent more than 97% of the world’s adult population.
    Survey Methods: Results are based on aggregated telephone and face-to-face interviews with 452,199 adults, aged 15 and older, in 151 countries from 2009 to 2011.

    Do you have BO? Or are you anti-BO?

    Bernie Sanders Condemns Existence of 23 Different Deodorant Brands While Children Go Hungry

    Comrade Bernie has shown us the way: it is high time that we collectively stink for socialism and reek for the rank and file!

    Don’t think of it as Malodorous Marxism. Think of it as being Putrid for the People!

    This will be the moment when we will have Stench for Humanity’s Spawn. Why should we reek of Old Spice when children are starving? (PO: Yeah, I don’t get the connection either, but Comrade Bernie is on a roll)

    We should only have the People’s Party-Approved Anti-Perspirants! We present…

    Democratic Deodorants

    Do you really want to bowl over your comrades with BO when you raise your fist in protest?

    Unlike the decadent deodorants borne of the oppression of freedom and liberty, we shall have only Party-Approved Pungency in these pre-approved scents:

    Lenin lavender
    Stalin spring
    Adolph air fresh
    Scent of Barry
    Gulag Floral
    Herbal Hussein
    Michelle Musk
    KGB Bouquet

    We accept scent suggestions – simply contact the People’s Pungency Prerogative.

    So get in line for the people’s perfume, it’s the common ‘scents’ solution! – See more at: http://thepeoplescube.com/peoples-blog/democrat-deodorants-raise-a-fist-for-a-sniff-of-socialism-t16383.html

    Democratic Deodorants

    Do you really want to bowl over your comrades with BO when you raise your fist in protest?

    Unlike the decadent deodorants borne of the oppression of freedom and liberty, we shall have only Party-Approved Pungency in these pre-approved scents:

    Lenin lavender
    Stalin spring
    Adolph air fresh
    Scent of Barry
    Gulag Floral
    Herbal Hussein
    Michelle Musk
    KGB Bouquet

    We accept scent suggestions – simply contact the People’s Pungency Prerogative.

    Bernie Sanders’s Dark Age Economics http://bit.ly/1LJ4L7C

    Bernie Sanders’s Dark Age Economics
    Real people simply want things that are different from what the planners want them to want, a predicament that can be solved only through violence and the threat of violence.
    Bernie Sanders, the Brooklyn socialist who represents Vermont in the Senate, generated a great deal of mirth on Tuesday when he wondered aloud how it is that a society with 23 kinds of deodorant and 18 kinds of sneakers has hungry children. Setting aside the fact that we must have hundreds of kinds of deodorant and thousands of choices of sneakers,

    Senator Sanders here communicates a double falsehood: The first falsehood is that the proliferation of choices in consumer goods is correlated with poverty, among children or anybody else, which is flatly at odds with practically all modern human experience. The reality is precisely the opposite: Poverty is worst where consumers have the fewest choices, e.g., in North Korea, the old Soviet Union, the socialist paradise that is modern Venezuela, etc. The second falsehood is that choice in consumer goods represents the loss of resources that might have gone to some other end — that if we had only one kind of sneaker, then there would be more food available for hungry children.

    This is a very old and thoroughly discredited idea, one that dates back to Karl Marx and to the anti-capitalists who preceded him. It is a facet of the belief that free markets are irrational, and that if reason could be imposed on markets — which is to say, if reason could be imposed on free human beings — then enlightened planners could ensure that resources are directed toward their best use. This line of thinking historically has led to concentration camps, gulags, firing squads, purges, and the like, for a few reasons: The first is that free markets are not irrational; they are a reflection of what people actually value at a particular time relative to the other things that they might also value.

    Real people simply want things that are different from what the planners want them to want, a predicament that can be solved only through violence and the threat of violence. That is the first reason that this sort of planning leads to gulags. The second is that there are no enlightened planners; men such as Senator Sanders imagine themselves to be candidates for enlightened leadership, but put a whip in his hand and the gentleman from Vermont will turn out to be another thug in the long line of thugs who have cleaved to his faith. The third reason that this sort of planning always works out poorly is that nobody knows what the best use of resources actually is; all that the would-be masters know is that they do not approve of the current deployment of resources.

    US military pilots complain hands tied in ‘frustrating’ fight against ISIS
    U.S. military pilots carrying out the air war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria are voicing growing discontent over what they say are heavy-handed rules of engagement hindering them from striking targets.

    They blame a bureaucracy that does not allow for quick decision-making. One Navy F-18 pilot who has flown missions against ISIS voiced his frustration to Fox News, saying: “There were times I had groups of ISIS fighters in my sights, but couldn’t get clearance to engage.”

    He added, “They probably killed innocent people and spread evil because of my inability to kill them. It was frustrating.”

    Sources close to the air war against ISIS told Fox News that strike missions take, on average, just under an hour, from a pilot requesting permission to strike an ISIS target to a weapon leaving the wing.

    Elizabeth Warren honored with new nickname: ‘Flipping Bull’
    Because of this latest bit of hypocrisy we’re about to discuss, unreliable sources tell me Elizabeth Warren has not one but two home shows in production at cable nets: “Property Comrades” and “Hammer (& Sickle) Time!” Here’s why…

    Fauxcahontas’ 2006 book “All Your Worth,” in the section talking about home-buying myths, contained this:
    http://michellemalkin.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/warrenbook.jpg
    With that “myth” in mind, check out this gem from National Review:

    But Warren bought and sold at least five properties for profit at a different time in her life, before the cratering economy and a political career made her a star.
    […]
    The profits from these flipped homes adds up: Even excluding the property sold by her brother, Warren and her husband have made at least $240,500 flipping homes (before deducting the unknown sum they invested in remodeling).

    Sanders: Rich ‘Have Not Contributed One Nickel To Deficit Reduction’
    On Cenk Uygur’s MSNBC show this evening, Bernie Sanders, the socialist senator from Vermont who caucuses with the Dems, claimed that rich Americans “have not contributed one nickel to deficit reduction.”

    Cenk of course failed to challenge Sander’s certifiably silly assertion.
    Watch Bernie defy reality, and consider that in the last analyzed year, the top 1% paid . . . 38% of all federal income taxes.

    CENK UYGUR: How are you going to rally progressives? I’m not putting it all on you. I know you’re a great progressive. How do you . . . how do we get the president on our side?

    BERNIE SANDERS: It’s millions of people saying, Mr. President, we voted for you because you told us you were going to defend working Americans. Now is the time to stand up to the big-money interests, ask for shared sacrifice, don’t balance the budget on the backs of the elderly, the poor and the sick. If you do that, you’re going to have tremendous popular support. I would like to see a couple of hundred thousand people come here to Washington, say hello to the president, say hello to the Republicans, say do not balance the budget on the middle class, the working families in this country, when the richest people are getting richer. They have not contributed one nickel to deficit reduction.

    100 Million Dead Under Communism – Next to Zero Hollywood Films

    Here is a story about a struggling film maker attempting to raise enough money to finish his film about victims of a Soviet gulag. His name is Michael Kingsbury. He doesn’t have enough funds, nor does he have the interest of Hollywood producers who have made one anti-Nazi film after another.

    “Two lovers escape the Marxist USSR GULAG death camps where 50 million Politically Incorrect Artists, Writers, were exterminated.”

    There is a website called Kickstarter, which helps film makers raise money for film projects, and the hopeful makers of this film put clips of what they have done so far up on their page in hopes of raising money for the film. They have raised a whopping $245.

    According to film maker’s page on Kickstarter, Gulag Barashevo, is “a highly charged emotional drama Love Story about Politically Incorrect Dissidents and Artists caught in the Marxist USSR GULAG death camp genocide, where an estimated 50 million people perished, and how two lovers escaped to Freedom.”

    How many hundreds of movies have been made, and are still being made, about the Nazis, but so few about the 100 million who perished under communism?

    Weird: Sen. Bernie Sanders Allegedly Wrote Women “Fantasize About Being Raped” In A 1972 Essay…
    http://www.weaselzippers.us/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/sandersw-550×452.png
    We’d never hear the end of it, if a Republican wrote this.

    Via MRCTV:

    In a 1972 essay, presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) opined that men fantasized about women being abused. He also claimed that women fantasized about being gang raped.

    In an article entitled “Men-And-Women,” published in an alternative newspaper called the “Vermont Freeman” Sanders shared his thoughts on male and female sexuality in ways that would cause a media firestorm if it had been penned by any current GOP candidate. Even one with as little chance at grabbing his party’s nomination as Sanders currently has.

    “A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy,” wrote Sanders. “A woman on her knees. A woman tied up. A woman abused.”

    Sanders didn’t specify as to how he had gained such a deep understanding of the male psyche.

    In terms of his understanding of female sexual fantasies, Sanders provided similar insight.

    “A woman enjoys intercourse with her man–as she fantasizes about being raped by 3 men simultaneously.”

    Bernie Sanders: ‘Don’t underestimate me’
    The odds might be against Sen. Bernie Sanders’s presidential bid, but he has a message for those who question his bid: “Don’t underestimate me.”

    “I fully concede that I get into this race as a major underdog. No question about it. I mean, Hillary Clinton is known by 95 percent of the American people. And clearly, in terms of money, I will be very, very, very heavily outspent,” the Vermont independent said in an interview with CNBC.

    “Don’t underestimate me. We’re going to do better than people think. And I think we got a shot to win this thing.”

    Bernie Sanders 1972: Men fantasize about abusing women, women fantasize about being raped
    In his defense, the odds that an avowed socialist writing in the early 1970s might have been high when formulating his opinions have to be north of 90 percent.

    Charles Cooke acknowledges that if any Republican in the race had written something like that, however long ago, not only would he be hounded by the media over it but so would every other Republican in the race and even prominent Republicans not in the race, purely for the war-on-women squirm factor involved. It would be a days-long lefty “rape culture” media jamboree. And yet, says Cooke, we should take the high road.

    Anyway. Via Reason, here’s Remy paying tribute to another, even deeper deep thought from Senator Socialist.

    Venezuelan Bolivar Now Worth More as Toilet Paper Than as Money
    Another triumph of socialism
    Back in February, when the Venezuelan government introduced its official and complicated three-tier exchange rate, 190 bolivars bought you one U.S. dollar on the black market—which is where real people without government connections shop for hard currency in Caracas. Now, just a few months later, the bolivar is worth about half that much. This is a brilliant testimony to the innovative power of the government’s socialist policies: faced with a crushing shortage of toilet paper, the Bolivarian regime has converted its own currency into butt-wipe.
    Bloomberg notes:

    The stunning collapse of Venezuela’s bolivar in black market trading this month — it fell to as low as 423 bolivars per dollar from 279 at the start of the month — has left Venezuelans scratching their heads, with many wondering why it has sunk below the value of gold and hard currency the central bank has to back it.

    Bernie Sanders: Don’t Need 23 Choices of Deodorant, 18 Choices of Sneakers When Kids Are Going Hungry
    The Socialist running for president says he doesn’t begrudge Hillary Clinton for the money she makes giving speeches.
    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who is running for the Democratic nomination for president, represents everything wrong with the populist redistributist left. Channeling his inner Hugo Chavez in an interview with CNBC, Sanders bemoaned the choice of deodorant and sneakers in this country, because children are starving. Via CNBC:

    You can’t just continue growth for the sake of growth in a world in which we are struggling with climate change and all kinds of environmental problems. All right? You don’t necessarily need a choice of 23 underarm spray deodorants or of 18 different pairs of sneakers when children are hungry in this country. I don’t think the media appreciates the kind of stress that ordinary Americans are working on.

    Sanders, of course, is mistaken on the fundamentals. Economic growth is not a goal for the sake of itself—economic growth ignited by the freeing of markets has lifted more people out of poverty in the last century than any other force in history. Choices in the market contribute that improvement of the human condition—not just because 23 choices of deodorant mean more jobs than one choice of deodorant but because in a very real sense more choices mean more wealth. Bernie Sanders and those attracted to his economically illiterate, anti-capitalist rhetoric live in a world where working conditions haven’t changed since the 19th century, where the United States is perpetually one tax or spending cut away from collapsing into Mad Max style chaos.

    While Obama Panders In Miami, Castro Regime Arrests Anti-Communist Protester & 163 Others in Havana
    While President Obama pandered to a group of Cuban-Americans in Miami who openly questioned his new policy towards Communist Cuba, the Castro Regime was taking a different approach towards those who openly disagree with their policies, arresting them.

    The Miami New Times reports that anti-Communist protester and artist, Tania Bruguera, was arrested in Havana, Cuba while protesting by publicly reading a book on totalitarianism for 100 hours. The Castro Regime also arrested 163 other artists and activists the same day:

    “Artist Tania Bruguera was detained yet again at her home in Havana. The Cuban-born artist has just finished a 100-hour long public reading of the German philosopher Hannah Arendt seminal work, The Origins of Totalitarianism (1951). In the book, Arendt argues that totalitarianism’s sole purpose is to terrorize and repress an entire population.

    Society vs. The Individual Part 1
    The relationship between society and the individual, by nature, has to be symbiotic. Society is made up of individuals and it would logically follow that strong individuals make up a strong society. However, over time and under different environments the relationship between society and the individual is not always mutually beneficial. And if that’s the case it’s almost always society benefiting at the expense of the individual as the many can conspire against the individual and not the other way around. It’s simply “there’s 8 of us and only 1 of you, guess who we’re having for diner!”

    We see this “society taking advantage of the individual” throughout history as well as today. Mob-rule democracies using government to force individuals to pay for the masses’ mistakes. Religion telling its adherents to donate to the church or burn in hell. Even the unconscious psychology of tribalism effectively enslaving the individual for the benefit of the commune. There are many instances where the individual is right, and society is wrong.

    But aside from the time and monetary costs the individual pays for the benefit of society, there is another egregious cost that is often ignored, but the individual must pay – his sanity.

    While paying taxes, being forced to donate to a church, or getting beat up because you dared to “act white” and get good grades are clear and identifiable prices the individual pays, in order to keep the individual from going into full revolt or Galt, society needs to brainwash the individual so they don’t dare question the parasitic nature of society’s relationship with them. To that end a whole host of lies, narratives, political correctness and propaganda are shoved down individuals’ throats to keep them from asking questions and keep them from independent thought. However, this “brainwashing” is nothing as simple as merely disseminating lies and repeating it enough that people “start to believe it.” It’s a masterful, elaborate, and purposefully designed strategy, starting when the individual is all of 4 years old and never ending until that individual is dead and society has used him up as much as possible.

    Bruce Schneier on Privacy and the Data Free-for-All
    Over the past two decades, few voices have shouted louder from the rooftops about global cybersecurity and digital privacy concerns than Bruce Schneier. He’s the CTO of Resilient Systems, a board member of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and has authored 14 books—his latest, Data and Goliath, was published in March.

    As Facebook and Google have infiltrated our every waking moment, Schneier warns that these data giants, if left unchecked, could compromise the very principles of a democratic society. Web companies collect metrics like age, gender and social interests (to serve up better advertisements), while cellular networks track everyone’s geolocation with homing devices we call smartphones. As we’ve seen, smartphones are also powerful proxy surveillance tools for nosy governments.

    IRS blames Russia for ‘$50 million’ hack
    Remember when the IRS website was hacked and around 100,000 people had their tax data stolen? Officials are now pointing accusatory fingers in the direction of Russia, at least according to CNN. The revelation was made by Illinois Representative Peter Roskam, who is believed to have gotten the information straight from IRS chief John Koskinen. Roskam added that criminal gangs used the information to file around $50 million worth of fraudulent tax refund requests, although it’s not clear if any money was handed over. It’s the latest in a series of high-profile digital encounters between the US and Russia, after the latter was found to have hacked the White House and accessed the President’s unclassified emails.

    Did Clinton ask Blumenthal to look for information about Libya? – Hot Air http://hotair.com/archives/2015/05/28/did-clinton-ask-blumenthal-to-look-for-information-about-libya/

    Did Clinton ask Blumenthal to look for information about Libya?
    ProPublica and Gawker uncovered a secret intelligence network that was feeding unsubstantiated intelligence to Hillary’s private email server. The network included former Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal who was prevented from taking a job at State in 2009 by the Obama White House. Mr. Blumenthal had circulated some “unflattering” stories about the president during the 2008 campaign.

    We also know that Mrs. Clinton used two separate email addresses (hdr22@clintonemail.com and hrod17@clintonemail.com) while she was at the State Department. Clinton’s legal team asserted that the latter address did not exist during her tenure as our top diplomat. When the initial reports of the secret intelligence network came to light, we did not know if Hillary read or even corresponded with Blumenthal’s emails. Now, it looks as if she did read them, and even forwarded a few to a State Department staffer.

    Last week, in Iowa, Mrs. Clinton said the Blumenthal emails were “unsolicited” (via Politico)

    Now, the Washington Post’s David Ignatius wrote that someone told him that Blumenthal approached a former CIA officer, Tyler Drumheller, and said to him that “his friend Clinton” was “looking for information” on Libya

    US surveillance reportedly shows Chinese artillery on artificial islands
    U.S. surveillance images reportedly show that China has positioned weaponry on at least one of the artificial islands it is developing in the South China Sea, apparently confirming suspicions that Beijing has been building up the area for military use.

    The Wall Street Journal, citing U.S. officials, reported that images taken about a month ago showed two Chinese motorized artillery pieces on one of the artificial reefs. Although the weaponry would not pose a threat to U.S. planes or ships, it could potentially reach neighboring islands, the officials told the paper.

    “There is no military threat,” one official told the Journal. “But it is about symbolism.”

    The False Promise Of Civilian Disarmament http://dailycaller.com/2015/05/28/the-false-promise-of-civilian-disarmament/ via @dailycaller

    The False Promise Of Civilian Disarmament
    In the dark days following the British Expeditionary Force’s evacuation from Dunkirk in 1940—75 years ago this week from May 27 to June 4—Great Britain was a nation virtually disarmed. And not just by the need to abandon equipment on France’s beaches to save British “Tommies” to fight another day, but by the policies of its own government. The days of devotion to civilian marksmanship, “volunteer rifle clubs” and the idea that there should be “a rifle in every cottage,” as proposed by the Prime Minister Marquis of Salisbury in 1900, had given way to restrictive gun control laws that required subjects to demonstrate “good reason” to merely obtain a handgun or rifle. So with Hitler’s legions poised to cross the English Channel, the British people were defended by an ill-equipped and defeated army and a “Home Guard” armed with little more than sporting shotguns and pikes.

    Help for the beleaguered nation came from both the American government and from the American people, the latter through the “American Committee for Defense of British Homes.” In late 1940, the committee sent an urgent appeal—which, of course, appeared in American Rifleman—for Americans to send “Pistols – Rifles – Revolvers – Shotguns – Binoculars” because “British civilians, faced with the threat of invasion, desperately need arms for the defense of their homes.”

    The U.S. Government responded to Britain’s peril as well with passage of the Lend-Lease Act in March 1941. Almost immediately, quantities of “U.S. Rifle, Cal. .30, M1,” Model 1917 Enfields, Browning Automatic Rifles and Browning water-cooled machine guns were on their way across the Atlantic. The “British Garands” have an interesting history but the importance of arming the British at that time is made clear by the fact that the rapidly growing U.S. Army itself did not have sufficient numbers of the then-new M1 Garands. Winston Churchill wrote in Their Finest Hour: “When the ships from America approached our shores with their priceless arms, special trains were waiting in all ports to receive their cargoes. The Home Guard in every county, in every village, sat up through the night to receive them. … By the end of July we were an armed nation … .”

    1963 Congressional Record: ‘Communist Goals’ Include Promoting of Homosexuality as ‘Natural, Healthy’ http://www.cnsnews.com/blog/penny-starr/1963-congressional-record-communist-goals-include-promoting-homosexuality-natural

    1963 Congressional Record: ‘Communist Goals’ Include Promoting of Homosexuality as ‘Natural, Healthy’
    The U.S. State Department’s new envoy for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex persons (LGBTI) spoke on Tuesday about the U.S. mission to put in place constitutional protections for homosexuals in countries around the globe and how that those protections make “a more durable, healthier nation.”

    Randy Berry’s remarks are particularly interesting when contrasted with the Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35, January 10, 1963 that list “Current Communist Goals.” The list of 42 goals, entered into the record by Rep. A. S. Herlong Jr., a Democrat from Florida, is credited to the book “The Naked Communist” by Cleon Skousen.

    Although some critics – liberal and conservative — have denounced Skousen’s ideology and his ties to the Mormon church, a number of the items on his list are striking when looked at through the lens of current cultural conditions, including his note about homosexuality.

    Global Cooling strikes again:

    Filthy snow piles remain, even as temperatures climb
    They’re unsightly, filled with garbage and debris, and serve as a daily reminder of just how awful the winter really was — and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon.

    Lingering snow piles from the historic New England winter continue to plague municipalities in Greater Boston, even as temperatures creep toward the 90s and spring makes way for summer.

    In Boston, what was once a 75-foot-high snow mound on a parcel of land on Tide Street in the Seaport District has been reduced to a three-story pile of dirt and discarded household items that remain encrusted in solid ice. But even with the beating rays from the sun, nothing seems to be powerful enough to zap away winter.

    US surveillance reportedly shows Chinese artillery on artificial islands
    U.S. surveillance images reportedly show that China has positioned weaponry on at least one of the artificial islands it is developing in the South China Sea, apparently confirming suspicions that Beijing has been building up the area for military use.

    The Wall Street Journal, citing U.S. officials, reported that images taken about a month ago showed two Chinese motorized artillery pieces on one of the artificial reefs. Although the weaponry would not pose a threat to U.S. planes or ships, it could potentially reach neighboring islands, the officials told the paper.

    “There is no military threat,” one official told the Journal. “But it is about symbolism.”

    The False Promise Of Civilian Disarmament http://dailycaller.com/2015/05/28/the-false-promise-of-civilian-disarmament/ via @dailycaller

    The False Promise Of Civilian Disarmament
    In the dark days following the British Expeditionary Force’s evacuation from Dunkirk in 1940—75 years ago this week from May 27 to June 4—Great Britain was a nation virtually disarmed. And not just by the need to abandon equipment on France’s beaches to save British “Tommies” to fight another day, but by the policies of its own government. The days of devotion to civilian marksmanship, “volunteer rifle clubs” and the idea that there should be “a rifle in every cottage,” as proposed by the Prime Minister Marquis of Salisbury in 1900, had given way to restrictive gun control laws that required subjects to demonstrate “good reason” to merely obtain a handgun or rifle. So with Hitler’s legions poised to cross the English Channel, the British people were defended by an ill-equipped and defeated army and a “Home Guard” armed with little more than sporting shotguns and pikes.

    Help for the beleaguered nation came from both the American government and from the American people, the latter through the “American Committee for Defense of British Homes.” In late 1940, the committee sent an urgent appeal—which, of course, appeared in American Rifleman—for Americans to send “Pistols – Rifles – Revolvers – Shotguns – Binoculars” because “British civilians, faced with the threat of invasion, desperately need arms for the defense of their homes.”

    4 Myths About Hydration That Refuse To Die

    Myth One: You Need To Drink Eight Cups A Day
    This most well-known but laughably arbitrary rule of thumb has been hammered into us since who knows when. In fact, Dartmouth physician Professor Heinz Valtin went as far as to pen a paper published by the American Physiological Society on the lack of scientific evidence behind the popular axiom.

    The truth is, your actual needs can be more than 8 glasses, or less than 8 glasses. There’s no magic number, and the amount changes every day, depending on your size, weight, ambient temperature, daily activities, and, more significantly, your food.

    So how do you know how much water you should drink? Before all this science, people relied on a pretty fine-tuned, reliable mechanism to make sure they were getting enough water. It’s called thirst, and you may have heard of it. Drink enough to satisfy your thirst, and that’s good enough.
    Myth Two: If You’re Thirsty, You’re Already Dehydrated

    Strictly speaking, it’s true. Thirst is normally triggered by a decrease in your body’s water content. But it’s not as dire as it’s usually made out to seem.

    Normal levels of thirst usually come about with a 2-4% reduction in body water. As long as you don’t have kidney problems, this is generally tolerable, and acts as a perfectly sound guide to let you know when you need a glass of H2O.

    Dehydration becomes a problem when you exceed an 5-8% reduction in body water. By this stage, however, you would be experiencing dizziness and fatigue–far more severe than a slightly dry mouth.

    The thirst principle also applies to when you’re exercising. But if you notice that you forget to hydrate or finish parched, take heed of the American Council on Exercise’s guidelines: about 7-10 oz (about a glass) for every 10 to 20 minutes of heavy activity should be enough.
    Myth Three: Sports Drinks Are the Best Option After Exercise
    This depends. Sports drinks are full of electrolytes (salt ions) that help your body replace those lost from sweat. These electrolytes are important: they’re crucial for nerve functioning, and help to maintain blood pH levels, among other things. But Gatorade? Less important. Good marketing may try convince you otherwise, but such drinks are really only necessary if you’ve been exercising hard for a long time, like long distance running, or hours of hiking in the hot sun. Even then, beer is a better option.
    No matter how hard you killed your leg workout, you’re probably better off sticking to plain water.
    Myth Four: Water Flushes Out Toxins From Your Body

    Not really. There’s a popular misconception that drinking copious amounts of water will help magically cleanse your innards of the sins of last weekend.

    Drinking adequate amounts of water ensures your body’s metabolism works correctly, part of which is the natural detoxification process your liver and kidneys conduct. But they work fine as long as they’re getting enough H2O. Any additional water intake isn’t going to help. In fact, drinking too much water can actually prevent your body’s detoxification process. It reduces the concentration of salt in your blood, which can damage your kidneys and liver and prevent their normal functioning.

    Vox is the site that made its debut promising to specialize in the “explainer” piece, which quickly became known to the folks of Twitter as “Voxsplaining.” And if anything ever needed Voxsplaining, it’s Sen. Bernie Sanders’ recently unearthed 1972 essay on violent rape fantasies. Vox’s Ezra Klein, whose site had successfully covered GOP Sen. Ron Johnson’s issues with “The LEGO Movie,” was at a loss for words.

    Fascism then is that system that maintains the facade of private property, but what you end up having is this bizarre marriage of business and state

    Fascism is an economic system that marries the state to business, where business holds the title but state holds control.

    Fascism, first and foremost, is an economic theory. It has precious little to do with the horrors of the Holocaust, it has precious little to do with world conquest, and it certainly has nothing whatever to do with goose stepping and “heil hitler” signs and all the other kinds of stock bad-guy things that we get from Nazi Germany.

    Fascism is an economic system that is distinguished from socialism or communism in a very narrow way. Don’t forget that, while we like to present fascism as the hard right on the political spectrum and communism as the hard left on the political spectrum, fascism is a socialistic concept. The name “Nazi” stands for the “National Socialist Party.” What distinguishes the fascists and the communists is not socialism or not-socialism but rather national socialism versus international socialism.

    There is also this critical distinction: communism exists as a theory that suggests that the only way to have economic justice is not merely to divvy up the fruit of production equally among all members of society, but that it is about ownership of the means of production. This has to be universal or ultimately in the hands of the state. The state owns the means of production.

    Fascism disagrees with that. Fascism is a system that affirms that private individuals certainly may own property, they certainly may own the means of production, the tools and the factory, the ways in which things get made. What defines fascism however is that while individuals may own property or the means of production, control of that property and the means of production remains in the hand of the state.

    Now if we know much at all about what ownership is, what property is, we would recognize that essential to the concept of “property” is control. If you control my car, you drive it, you fill it with gas when you want to fill it with gas, you change the oil when you want to change oil, but you let me hold onto the title in my file cabinet at home then I don’t really own that car, you own that car. Ownership requires control. Fascism then is that system that maintains the facade of private property, but what you end up having is this bizarre marriage of business and state. Where the business is protected by the state, the business is shielded from competition, guaranteed of profits but ultimately controlled by the state.

    Does this, I wonder, sound awfully familiar to anyone? Fascism allows us to own property, but it tells us what we have to pay those who work inside our factory. It tells us what percentage of this material we must include in the thing that we make. It tells us how many hours people are allowed to work. It tells is this and it tells us that until finally you are left with the obvious conclusion that the state owns what we think we own because it controls all that we have.

    Friends, we don’t have a socialist economy here in United States, despite all the squawking and screaming about President Obama. Nor do we have a free market, despite what we would like to believe or what we once might have enjoyed. What we are living in, economically speaking, is fascism where property is held privately in name only, but controlled by an army of bureaucrats from the central government.

    This is one reason why we are called to love and to seek liberty because fascism is a betrayal and assault upon the right of property–a right which was given to us by God Himself. That is what our founding documents say and, more importantly still, that is what the ten commandments say. Fascism isn’t just bad economics, it is theft.

    Fascism: Yours, Mine, and Ours
    Fascism is an economic system that marries the state to business, where business holds the title but state holds control.

    Transcript:

    Some of you, though I trust not all of you, are familiar with what we call “Godwin’s law.” This is a particular law which is born out of empirical study of the Internet and it holds that, given enough time, any and all internet arguments will eventually involve some side of the argument accusing the other side of the argument of either being like Hitler or of being a Nazi. The corollary to that is that the first one to make that observation loses the argument.

    Well, I don’t know how many times we’ve done “-isms,” but we have finally come to “fascism” in our -ism study today. The truth of the matter is of course, there aren’t a whole lot of people out there, though there are some, who actively, happily, publicly, and unapologetically argue in defense of fascism. The problem is, however, that because we don’t know what fascism is, and because we associate it with a bunch of accidental trappings to it, we miss it when it comes us.

    Fascism, first and foremost, is an economic theory. It has precious little to do with the horrors of the Holocaust, it has precious little to do with world conquest, and it certainly has nothing whatever to do with goose stepping and “heil hitler” signs and all the other kinds of stock bad-guy things that we get from Nazi Germany. Fascism is an economic system that is distinguished from socialism or communism in a very narrow way. Don’t forget that, while we like to present fascism as the hard right on the political spectrum and communism as the hard left on the political spectrum, fascism is a socialistic concept. The name “Nazi” stands for the “National Socialist Party.” What distinguishes the fascists and the communists is not socialism or not-socialism but rather national socialism versus international socialism.

    There is also this critical distinction: communism exists as a theory that suggests that the only way to have economic justice is not merely to divvy up the fruit of production equally among all members of society, but that it is about ownership of the means of production. This has to be universal or ultimately in the hands of the state. The state owns the means of production. Fascism disagrees with that. Fascism is a system that affirms that private individuals certainly may own property, they certainly may own the means of production, the tools and the factory, the ways in which things get made. What defines fascism however is that while individuals may own property or the means of production, control of that property and the means of production remains in the hand of the state.

    Now if we know much at all about what ownership is, what property is, we would recognize that essential to the concept of “property” is control. If you control my car, you drive it, you fill it with gas when you want to fill it with gas, you change the oil when you want to change oil, but you let me hold onto the title in my file cabinet at home then I don’t really own that car, you own that car. Ownership requires control. Fascism then is that system that maintains the facade of private property, but what you end up having is this bizarre marriage of business and state. Where the business is protected by the state, the business is shielded from competition, guaranteed of profits but ultimately controlled by the state.

    Does this, I wonder, sound awfully familiar to anyone? Fascism allows us to own property, but it tells us what we have to pay those who work inside our factory. It tells us what percentage of this material we must include in the thing that we make. It tells us how many hours people are allowed to work. It tells is this and it tells us that until finally you are left with the obvious conclusion that the state owns what we think we own because it controls all that we have.

    Friends, we don’t have a socialist economy here in United States, despite all the squawking and screaming about President Obama. Nor do we have a free market, despite what we would like to believe or what we once might have enjoyed. What we are living in, economically speaking, is fascism where property is held privately in name only, but controlled by an army of bureaucrats from the central government. This is one reason why we are called to love and to seek liberty because fascism is a betrayal and assault upon the right of property–a right which was given to us by God Himself. That is what our founding documents say and, more importantly still, that is what the ten commandments say. Fascism isn’t just bad economics, it is theft.

    Fascism: Yours, Mine, and Ours
    Fascism is an economic system that marries the state to business, where business holds the title but state holds control.

    Transcript:
    Some of you, though I trust not all of you, are familiar with what we call “Godwin’s law.” This is a particular law which is born out of empirical study of the Internet and it holds that, given enough time, any and all internet arguments will eventually involve some side of the argument accusing the other side of the argument of either being like Hitler or of being a Nazi. The corollary to that is that the first one to make that observation loses the argument.

    Well, I don’t know how many times we’ve done “-isms,” but we have finally come to “fascism” in our -ism study today. The truth of the matter is of course, there aren’t a whole lot of people out there, though there are some, who actively, happily, publicly, and unapologetically argue in defense of fascism. The problem is, however, that because we don’t know what fascism is, and because we associate it with a bunch of accidental trappings to it, we miss it when it comes us.

    Fascism, first and foremost, is an economic theory. It has precious little to do with the horrors of the Holocaust, it has precious little to do with world conquest, and it certainly has nothing whatever to do with goose stepping and “heil hitler” signs and all the other kinds of stock bad-guy things that we get from Nazi Germany. Fascism is an economic system that is distinguished from socialism or communism in a very narrow way. Don’t forget that, while we like to present fascism as the hard right on the political spectrum and communism as the hard left on the political spectrum, fascism is a socialistic concept. The name “Nazi” stands for the “National Socialist Party.” What distinguishes the fascists and the communists is not socialism or not-socialism but rather national socialism versus international socialism.

    There is also this critical distinction: communism exists as a theory that suggests that the only way to have economic justice is not merely to divvy up the fruit of production equally among all members of society, but that it is about ownership of the means of production. This has to be universal or ultimately in the hands of the state. The state owns the means of production. Fascism disagrees with that. Fascism is a system that affirms that private individuals certainly may own property, they certainly may own the means of production, the tools and the factory, the ways in which things get made. What defines fascism however is that while individuals may own property or the means of production, control of that property and the means of production remains in the hand of the state.

    Now if we know much at all about what ownership is, what property is, we would recognize that essential to the concept of “property” is control. If you control my car, you drive it, you fill it with gas when you want to fill it with gas, you change the oil when you want to change oil, but you let me hold onto the title in my file cabinet at home then I don’t really own that car, you own that car. Ownership requires control. Fascism then is that system that maintains the facade of private property, but what you end up having is this bizarre marriage of business and state. Where the business is protected by the state, the business is shielded from competition, guaranteed of profits but ultimately controlled by the state.

    Does this, I wonder, sound awfully familiar to anyone? Fascism allows us to own property, but it tells us what we have to pay those who work inside our factory.

    http://www.cnn.com/2015/05/29/us/mohammed-cartoon-contest/index.html

    Do Not Submit! Republish the Mohammed Cartoons Everywhere. Here’s How.
    Jan 7, 2015
    Today’s terror attack on Charlie Hedbo, the irreverent French satirical magazine that was one of the few media outlets in France to publish the original “Mohammed cartoons,” is an attempt by Islamic fundamentalists to enforce shari’a worldwide, even on non-Muslims.
    We must not let them succeed.
    Self-censoring out of fear means self-imposition of shari’a (Islamic law).

    Self-censoring out of “respect” (actually just a euphemism for fear) means you are submitting to the terrorists’ worldview.
    The way to overcome them in this instance is to overwhelm them with disrespect and mockery.
    […]
    Fill the world with images of Mohammed so that the terrorists realize they can never expunge them all.
    But where to get the pictures? Easy.

    The Mohammed Image Archive, which I have hosted at zombietime since the day of the original “Mohammed cartoon crisis” back in May of 2006, has not only a full collection of the original cartoons, but more importantly the largest collection of Mohammed imagery ever assembled in the history of the world.

    I hereby grant permission, and even encourage, anyone reading this to repost any images found anywhere on the Mohammed Image Archive. No limits. Repost them all, if you want to.
    Go to any of these pages, download whatever images you choose, repost, and help to win the most important cultural war humanity has faced in a long time:
    The Mohammed Image Archive (main index page)
    Islamic Depictions of Mohammed in Full
    Islamic Depictions of Mohammed with Face Hidden
    European Medieval and Renaissance Images
    Miscellaneous Mohammed Images

    Experts reverse-engineer Obama’s speech-making template
    http://thepeoplescube.com/peoples-blog/experts-reverse-engineer-obama-s-speech-making-template-t16397.html

    Experts reverse-engineer Obama’s speech-making template
    President Obama’s recent commencement speech at the Coast Guard Academy, in which he called climate change “a serious threat to national security” and linked bad weather to terrorism, revealed a pattern that some analysts say is very similar to the President’s earlier speeches, in which he linked terrorism and major security threats to quite different things and events, such as, a YouTube video, Republican budget cuts, the previous administration, and George W. Bush personally.

    This has led experts to believe that there exists a speech-making template, probably in Microsoft Word, which allows Obama to insert any buzzword on his agenda in order to create a dramatic presentation that can shift the blame from himself, rally his audiences against the said buzzword, and call for immediate action.
    THE PRESIDENT: Thank you! (Applause.) Thank you very much. Everybody, please have a seat.

    And this brings me to the urgent need to address [BUZZWORD]. [BUZZWORD] is a threat to our homeland security, our economic infrastructure, the safety and health of the American people. This cannot be subject to the usual politics and the usual rhetoric.

    Try it yourself:
    Confronting [BUZZWORD] is now a key pillar of American global leadership. When I meet with leaders around the world, [BUZZWORD] is often at the top of our agenda — a core element of our diplomacy. Around the world, [BUZZWORD] increases the risk of instability and conflict. Globally, we could see a rise in refugees, mass migrations and new tensions caused by [BUZZWORD]. So, increasingly, our military will need to factor [BUZZWORD] into plans and operations.

    Now, I know there are still some folks back in Washington who refuse to admit that [BUZZWORD] is dangerous. But our analysts in the intelligence community know [BUZZWORD] is a threat. The science is indisputable. Denying [BUZZWORD], or refusing to deal with it endangers our national security. It undermines the readiness of our forces.

    [BUZZWORD] will impact every country on the planet. No nation is immune. So I’m here today to say that [BUZZWORD] constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security. And so we need to act — and we need to act now.

    (Applause.)

    Flashback: Obama 2015 SOTU Address “The State of the Union Is Strong”
    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2015/05/flashback-obama-2015-sotu-address-the-state-of-the-union-is-strong/

    Flashback: Obama 2015 SOTU Address “The State of the Union Is Strong”
    On Jaunary 20, 2015, Barack Obama told the American public the economy was growing at its fastest pace since 1999 and the “State of the Union is Strong.”

    Today the first quarter GDP was downgraded to -0.7%.
    The economy is shrinking.

    Guess the economy is not so strong, huh?

    Here is the SOTU transcript, via The White House:

    THE PRESIDENT: Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, Members of Congress, my fellow Americans:

    We are 15 years into this new century. Fifteen years that dawned with terror touching our shores; that unfolded with a new generation fighting two long and costly wars; that saw a vicious recession spread across our nation and the world. It has been, and still is, a hard time for many.

    But tonight, we turn the page. Tonight, after a breakthrough year for America, our economy is growing and creating jobs at the fastest pace since 1999. (Applause.) Our unemployment rate is now lower than it was before the financial crisis. More of our kids are graduating than ever before. More of our people are insured than ever before. (Applause.) And we are as free from the grip of foreign oil as we’ve been in almost 30 years. (Applause.)

    Tonight, for the first time since 9/11, our combat mission in Afghanistan is over. (Applause.) Six years ago, nearly 180,000 American troops served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Today, fewer than 15,000 remain. And we salute the courage and sacrifice of every man and woman in this 9/11 Generation who has served to keep us safe. (Applause.) We are humbled and grateful for your service.

    America, for all that we have endured; for all the grit and hard work required to come back; for all the tasks that lie ahead, know this: The shadow of crisis has passed, and the State of the Union is strong. (Applause.)

    Flashback: Obama 2015 SOTU Address “The State of the Union Is Strong”
    On Jaunary 20, 2015, Barack Obama told the American public the economy was growing at its fastest pace since 1999 and the “State of the Union is Strong.”
    Today the first quarter GDP was downgraded to -0.7%.
    The economy is shrinking.

    Guess the economy is not so strong, huh?
    Here is the SOTU transcript, via The White House:

    THE PRESIDENT: Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, Members of Congress, my fellow Americans:
    But tonight, we turn the page. Tonight, after a breakthrough year for America, our economy is growing and creating jobs at the fastest pace since 1999. (Applause.) Our unemployment rate is now lower than it was before the financial crisis. More of our kids are graduating than ever before. More of our people are insured than ever before. (Applause.)

    Perfect: Fake scientist and obsequious CNN anchor use manufactured stat to mock ‘climate change deniers’
    Bill Nye was interviewed by CNN’s Carol Costello on Friday, and the man who accepted a ride on Air Force One to go to Florida to help Obama warn about the dangers of carbon emissions was grilled… about how awfully stupid people who disagree with him are.

    From Newsbusters:

    On the May 29 edition of CNN Newsroom, Carol Costello brought on Bill Nye “the science guy” (who is not a scientist) to lecture conservatives about the supposed importance of climate change. Prior to the interview Costello introduced Nye as someone who is “ready to fight the haters,” and resorted to the usual liberal talking point: “Before we begin, I just want to say 97 percent of scientists say climate change is real and much of it is driven by man, so let’s go on.”

    It was a tough interview for Nye, but he held his own even after being challenged by an anchor parroting a manufactured talking point to produce nothing but platitudes that are more worn out than his bow tie.

    Now it makes sense
    Why would a country at war with islamic terrorists, indiscriminately import thousands of potential problems? Why would that SAME country also allow a porous, if not inviting, border for ‘potentially hostile refugees’ on the southern border while keeping the northern border hypersecure from people of a historical alliance?

    You can’t solve a problem till there IS a problem, and it’s way easier to solve if you created the problem. Remember Rahm, “never let a serious crises go to waste”

    Fast & furious and the porous southern border/importation of Muslim refugees. It seems to be the same strategy of creating a problem, so that it can be ‘solved’ with new laws or more criminal prosecutions. New gun laws couldn’t be proposed without a demonstrable need, so if it can be proven that US guns are being used to kill innocent foreign nationals, ergo rein in US sales with more control etc.

    Just As Fast & Furious tried to create a emergency with innocent Mexican deaths from US supplied assault weapons, our Executive branch is ‘terrorist walking’ unvetted immigrants from the south and known hostile Muslim countries, waiting for an unfortunate ‘event’ so horrific that new, more intrusive legislation is just “common sense”. Big government is creating the problem with our open southern border allowing unchecked crossings and lax follow up, compounded by importing ‘refugees’ with a known hatred for our style of life.

    Sooner rather than later, given the increased number of possible players, an event or events will occur, forcing even more stringent laws and application to ALL Americans. Look at what the TSA gets away with at an airport. Extrapolate that to all travel in the US.

    Cui bono. Whenever it doesn’t make sense, ask “who benefits?” In this case, it certainly isn’t the American people.

    House Dem: Left has ‘hijacked’ party message
    Rep. John Delaney (Md.), a centrist House Democrat, on Friday warned that voices on the left have “hijacked” his party’s message.
    Aside from trade, Delaney criticized those in his party advocating to expand Social Security, something Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has been pushing in his presidential bid.
    [..]
    “They propose expanding Social Security rather than prioritizing serious efforts to preserve the program — even though it will be unable to provide full benefits as soon as 2032, the Congressional Budget Office has made clear,” Delaney said. “The only way a large-scale expansion could work is by allocating new revenue away from needed investments in the next generation or by shifting the financial burden to workers or our children.”

    Delaney also criticized those in his party who he said want to “relitigate the financial crisis” of 2008.

    “Although these subjects may make for good partisan talking points, they do not provide the building blocks for a positive and bold agenda to create jobs and improve the lives of Americans,” Delaney wrote.

    He wrote that the “time-consuming rhetoric attacking banks … has little chance of producing more financial reform and distracts from far more consequential areas of economic risk.”

    “Our values tell us to care more about people than institutions and to judge success not by the performance of the most fortunate but by the whole of society.”

    ‘Couldn’t agree more’: David Axelrod describes what Bernie Sanders has that’s ‘prized & rare’ http://twitchy.com/2015/05/30/couldnt-agree-more-david-axelrod-describes-what-bernie-sanders-has-thats-prized-rare/
    Just remember that the person with which David Axelrod ‘Couldn’t agree more’ is a Socialist – what does that tell you about David Axelrod?

    Bernie Sanders is an avowed socialist. 52 percent of Democrats are OK with that.
    When he first won election to the House in 1990, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) embraced his political identity. “I am a socialist and everyone knows that,” Sanders said, responding to an ad that tried to link him to the regime of Fidel Castro.
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2015/04/29/bernie-sanders-is-an-avowed-socialist-and-democrats-are-actually-pretty-ok-with-that/

    The problem with Bernie Sanders
    SANDERS HAS positioned himself as a hero of America’s downtrodden workers. He doesn’t run from the label “socialist,” but instead embraces it in his condemnations of corporate greed. He even has a portrait of the great Socialist Party leader Eugene V. Debs hanging in his office.
    [..]
    No wonder Clinton celebrated Sander’s entry into the race. “I agree with Bernie,” she wrote on Twitter. “Focus must be on helping America’s middle class. GOP would hold them back. I welcome him to the race.”

    You can expect that Clinton will agree with Sanders during the campaign, rearticulating some of his themes in a “more realistic” fashion and occasionally chiding him for taking things too far. Sanders can be counted on to concentrate most of his fire on the Republicans, the Koch brothers and their reactionary positions, as he has been doing for years.

    At Friday’s press briefing, Secretary Josh Earnest was asked about the White House reaction to the protest taking place in Phoenix today, where armed bikers will hold a ‘Draw Muhammad’ contest outside of the mosque where the Garland shooters previously worshipped. Earnest said that no event should be used as a pretext for violence or terror, and that the government was aware of and would continue to monitor the “situation.” There was no mention of whether the mosque itself would be under any continued monitoring.

    The New Nationwide Crime Wave
    The consequences of the ‘Ferguson effect’ are already appearing. The main victims of growing violence will be the inner-city poor.
    May 29, 2015
    The nation’s two-decades-long crime decline may be over. Gun violence in particular is spiraling upward in cities across America. In Baltimore, the most pressing question every morning is how many people were shot the previous night. Gun violence is up more than 60% compared with this time last year, according to Baltimore police, with 32 shootings over Memorial Day weekend. May has been the most violent month the city has seen in 15 years.
    [..]
    By contrast, the first six months of 2014 continued a 20-year pattern of growing public safety. Violent crime in the first half of last year dropped 4.6% nationally and property crime was down 7.5%. Though comparable national figures for the first half of 2015 won’t be available for another year, the January through June 2014 crime decline is unlikely to be repeated.

    The most plausible explanation of the current surge in lawlessness is the intense agitation against American police departments over the past nine months.

    Since last summer, the airwaves have been dominated by suggestions that the police are the biggest threat facing young black males today. A handful of highly publicized deaths of unarmed black men, often following a resisted arrest—including Eric Garner in Staten Island, N.Y., in July 2014, Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., in August 2014 and Freddie Gray in Baltimore last month—have led to riots, violent protests and attacks on the police. Murders of officers jumped 89% in 2014, to 51 from 27.

    President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, before he stepped down last month, embraced the conceit that law enforcement in black communities is infected by bias. The news media pump out a seemingly constant stream of stories about alleged police mistreatment of blacks, with the reports often buttressed by cellphone videos that rarely capture the behavior that caused an officer to use force.

    Almost any police shooting of a black person, no matter how threatening the behavior that provoked the shooting, now provokes angry protests, like those that followed the death of Vonderrit Myers in St. Louis last October. The 18-year-old Myers, awaiting trial on gun and resisting-arrest charges, had fired three shots at an officer at close range. Arrests in black communities are even more fraught than usual, with hostile, jeering crowds pressing in on officers and spreading lies about the encounter.
    [..]
    This incessant drumbeat against the police has resulted in what St. Louis police chief Sam Dotson last November called the “Ferguson effect.” Cops are disengaging from discretionary enforcement activity and the “criminal element is feeling empowered,” Mr. Dotson reported. Arrests in St. Louis city and county by that point had dropped a third since the shooting of Michael Brown in August. Not surprisingly, homicides in the city surged 47% by early November and robberies in the county were up 82%.

    Similar “Ferguson effects” are happening across the country as officers scale back on proactive policing under the onslaught of anti-cop rhetoric. Arrests in Baltimore were down 56% in May compared with 2014.
    [..]
    Police officers now second-guess themselves about the use of force. “Officers are trying to invent techniques on the spot for taking down resistant suspects that don’t look as bad as the techniques taught in the academy,” says Jim Dudley, who recently retired as deputy police chief in San Francisco. Officers complain that civilians don’t understand how hard it is to control someone resisting arrest.
    […]
    If these decriminalization and deincarceration policies backfire, the people most harmed will be their supposed beneficiaries: blacks, since they are disproportionately victimized by crime. The black death-by-homicide rate is six times higher than that of whites and Hispanics combined. The killers of those black homicide victims are overwhelmingly other black civilians, not the police. The police could end all use of lethal force tomorrow and it would have at most a negligible impact on the black death rate. In any case, the strongest predictor of whether a police officer uses force is whether a suspect resists arrest, not the suspect’s race.

    Contrary to the claims of the “black lives matter” movement, no government policy in the past quarter century has done more for urban reclamation than proactive policing. Data-driven enforcement, in conjunction with stricter penalties for criminals and “broken windows” policing, has saved thousands of black lives, brought lawful commerce and jobs to once drug-infested neighborhoods and allowed millions to go about their daily lives without fear.

    To be sure, police officers need to treat everyone they encounter with courtesy and respect. Any fatal police shooting of an innocent person is a horrifying tragedy that police training must work incessantly to prevent. But unless the demonization of law enforcement ends, the liberating gains in urban safety over the past 20 years will be lost.

    History Lessons for the Architects of the New US-Cuba Policy http://panampost.com/jose-azel/2015/05/11/history-lessons-for-the-architects-of-the-new-us-cuba-policy/#.VWp–0k3JTY.twitter via @PanAmPost

    History Lessons for the Architects of the New US-Cuba Policy
    Self-Employed Set for Repression, Not Liberation
    Following President Barack Obama’s announcement of a rapprochement with the Cuban regime, US government officials have offered that fostering the small-enterprise sector in Cuba is a centerpiece of the new policy.

    Architects of the new US-Cuba policy rationalize that unconditionally ending economic sanctions will strengthen Cuba’s self-employed sector and, thus, foster a civil society more independent of the government. Eventually, they explain, this more autonomous civil society will function as agents of change, pressuring the regime for democratic governance.
    [..]
    Supporters of the new policy believe that a critical mass of self-employment will make it very difficult, if not impossible, for the regime to resist the social pressures for change. That is, thousands of micro-firms operating in Cuba would be an unstoppable force for change. From this perspective of economic determinism, governments under such pressures must change or collapse. Again, this fails to account for the nature of the Cuban regime. We can look for instruction in Cuban history.

    Beginning in the early days of the Cuban Revolution and climaxing with Fidel Castro’s “Revolutionary Offensive,” the regime embarked on an effort to eliminate all private property. First came the expropriations of foreign enterprises, followed by the expropriation of large Cuban-owned businesses, and finally all economic activity was taken over in 1968.

    According to Cuban-government statistics, 55,636 micro enterprises, mostly of one or two persons, were confiscated. Among them, 11,878 food retailers, 3,130 meat retailers, 3,198 bars, 8,101 food establishments, 6,653 dry cleaners, 3,345 carpentry workshops, 4,544 automobile mechanic shops, 1,598 artisan shops, and 1,188 shoeshine stands.

    Even with this sizable private sector in operation, the regime was able to exert total control. Moreover, this private sector had fresh memories of an imperfect, but significantly free pre-Castro Cuba. It was a civil society still imbued with the political principles of the 1940s Cuban Constitution enshrining liberty. And yet, this civil society was unable to prevent the communization of the island, or bring about change in the regime.

    Not coincidentally, and perhaps correlational, this period was the most brutally repressive of the Castro era, with thousands of executions and tens of thousands of long-term political prisoners. A strong argument could be made that self-employment without political freedom requires intensified repression in order to maintain control. Thus, increased repression in Cuba could be one of the unintended consequences of the new policy.

    Venezuela’s Bolívar Plummets to New Low amid Hyperinflation Fears http://panampost.com/sabrina-martin/2015/05/25/venezuelas-bolivar-plummets-to-new-low-amid-hyperinflation-fears/#.VWqCsB3Jjb4.twitter via @PanAmPost

    Venezuela’s Bolívar Plummets to New Low amid Hyperinflation Fears
    Black-Market Dollars Worth Nearly 70 Times More than Government Rate
    May 25, 2015

    More than a month later, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro has yet to unveil the details of the “economic overhaul” he announced would address the nation’s current crisis. Meanwhile, the black-market exchange rate of bolívares for US dollars continues to climb.

    On Thursday, May 21, the exchange rate broke the 400 Bs. per dollar mark for the first time, meaning Venezuelans living on the minimum wage are left earning only US$16.80 per month.

    The unofficial rate — 422.5 Bs. per dollar at press time — is now 67 times higher than the lowest fixed rate set by the government’s foreign-exchange controls put in pace over 12 years ago on February 5, 2003.

    The black-market exchange rate is calculated by the website DolarToday, which reports the value of the foreign currency in Venezuela based on daily exchange operations in Cúcuta, a Colombian city near the southern border.

    Why the Obamacare Train Wreck Must Be Stopped http://panampost.com/panam-staff/2015/05/27/why-the-obamacare-train-wreck-must-be-stopped/#.VWqDky4-6yY.twitter via @PanAmPost

    Why the Obamacare Train Wreck Must Be Stopped
    50 Makeshift Changes Sound the Alarm
    May 27, 2015

    As of this month, Obamacare has undergone not fewer than 50 substantial changes since its enactment in March 2010. One wonders what is worse: the law and its economically destructive mandates or that US President Barack Obama initiated 31 of these changes without legislative approval.

    Such wholesale changes on the fly, by the law’s own architects, demonstrate the Affordable Care Act’s resounding failure better than any critic ever could. Many of those responsible have now admitted the error of their ways, resigned, or inadvertently revealed the dishonest manner of its passage. Political proponents such as former Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana have also suffered swift dismissals from their constituents.

    US Americans have tasted the proof in the pudding and strongly oppose enforcement, as Obamacare enrollments slow to a trickle. They see that the complicated mix of mandates, subsidies, taxes, and “exchanges” have already reduced choice, raised costs, violated privacy, undermined constitutional government, and harmed employment prospects for the most vulnerable.

    Far from serving constituent needs and promoting competition, “large health insurance plans … effectively are collaborating with government officials in carrying out federal health policy,” as explained in a Mercatus Center working paper (PDF).

    However, diehard legislators and special interests still stand in the way of Obamacare’s repeal and parrot deceptive signup numbers, failing to discount those who either do not pay premiums or drop out. Ad hoc changes and delay tactics have mitigated some of the political fallout, and the medical reform has now achieved a considerable degree of inertia.

    If advocates for deregulation are to achieve a meaningful reversal of this train wreck, they must (1) stand vigilantly against any progressive claim to the moral high ground and (2) zero in on and unravel the last stand of Obamacare adherents: the utopian march to socialized medicine.

    'Ferguson Effect': America's New Crime Wave Is All Part of the Plan – Breitbart http://bit.ly/1KEg5nX

    ‘Ferguson Effect’: America’s New Crime Wave Is All Part of the Plan
    The Wall Street Journal is calling the dramatic end of America’s two-decade-long drop in crime “The Ferguson Effect.” Led behind the scenes by President Obama, America’s fraudulent civil rights leaders (Al Sharpton) and the mainstream media (especially CNN), worked together — starting with their lies in Ferguson — to launch hate campaigns against the police.

    The result is an empowered criminal element and by extension a horrific increase in murders, shootings, and other violent crimes:

    Gun violence is up more than 60% compared with this time last year, according to Baltimore police, with 32 shootings over Memorial Day weekend. May has been the most violent month the city has seen in 15 years.

    In Milwaukee, homicides were up 180% … Through April, shootings in St. Louis were up 39%, robberies 43%, and homicides 25%. “Crime is the worst I’ve ever seen it,” said St. Louis Alderman Joe Vacarro at a May 7 City Hall hearing.

    Murders in Atlanta were up 32%… Shootings in Chicago had increased 24% and homicides 17%. Shootings and other violent felonies in Los Angeles had spiked by 25%; in New York, murder was up nearly 13%, and gun violence 7%. …

    Shooting incidents are up 500% in an East Harlem precinct compared with last year; in a South Central Los Angeles police division, shooting victims are up 100%.

    And who are the victims here?

    Not just the predominantly poor people who huddle in these cities, these are mostly black people.
    […]
    This sinister plot is no secret. It’s openly called the Cloward-Piven Strategy.

    The Ferguson Effect isn’t a bug, it’s a feature.

    Sanders excites crowd in Iowa
    DAVENPORT, IA (WQAD/CNN) – Hundreds gathered in Davenport on Friday to hear from a string of presidential candidates.

    Some now officially kicking off their campaigns in the Hawkeye State, including U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, and the grassroots fan base he’s already building.

    Just days into his presidential campaign, and Sanders knows how to bring a crowd.

    “What we have got to do is to create an economy that works for all of us, not just the top 1 percent,” Sanders says.
    [..]
    “The issue of wealth and income inequality is the great moral issue of our time, the great economic issue of our time,” he declared.

    Sanders is seeking the Democratic nomination, but has long been a political independent.

    “Climate change is real. It is caused by human activity. It is already bringing devastation to parts of America and throughout the world,” he said.

    He also touted plans for tuition-free college, and universal healthcare.

    Justice Department prepares raft of new gun restrictions – Hot Air http://hotair.com/archives/2015/05/31/justice-department-prepares-raft-of-new-gun-restrictions/

    Justice Department prepares raft of new gun restrictions
    His efforts to enact new restrictions on the Second Amendment rights of Americans through the normal legislative process may have failed, but the President is clearly ready to give it the old college try and have the Justice Department ram through some new gun control rules. Of course, “new” is a bit of a misnomer in this case because it’s more of the same old tricks we’ve seen before. As The Hill reports, we should expect to see the finished version of these plans by the end of the year as Barack Obama tries to cement his legacy as a hero to liberal gun grabbers.

    The Justice Department plans to move forward this year with more than a dozen new gun-related regulations, according to list of rules the agency has proposed to enact before the end of the Obama administration.

    The regulations range from new restrictions on high-powered pistols to gun storage requirements. Chief among them is a renewed effort to keep guns out of the hands of people who are mentally unstable or have been convicted of domestic abuse.

    We won’t have the specifics for a while yet, but it’s pretty much the same script we’ve seen in the past.

By doing so, he encourages anti-gunners to pour anti-ballistic bile onto their fellow Americans. His rhetoric antagonizes gun owners – by intent – hardening into hatred toward those who gladly, indeed enthusiastically infringe on their right to keep and bear arms. That said, the CSGV mostly tries to sugar-coat their contempt. Except when the mask slips and they don’t. This is one of those times. And here’s some of the feedback on their page . . .

    How Bernie Sanders’ ‘radical’ ideas entered the municipal mainstream
    On March 4, 1981, red dawn broke over the Green Mountains.

    “‘Everyone’s scared.’ Socialist elected mayor of Vermont’s largest city,” blared the UPI headline over an article that began, “Self-described socialist Bernard Sanders… has invited the city’s business and political leaders to join him in creating ‘a rebirth of the human spirit.’ ” Readers could have been forgiven for concluding that some Pol Pot in Birkenstocks had just established a beachhead in Burlington, Vermont.

    When Bernie Sanders won by 10 votes in a four-way mayoral race, Ronald Reagan had just entered the White House, the Cold War was in full swing, and people were seriously freaked out. “You would’ve thought that Trotsky had come to Burlington,” said Sanders’ confidant and one-time roommate, Richard Sugarman.

    But now, 34 years later, as Sanders launches a campaign for the presidency, many of the radical solutions he imposed — free arts and culture for the masses, local-first economic development, wresting money from rich nonprofits, and, most shockingly, communal land for affordable housing — have become mainstays of the American municipal governance playbook.
    […]
    That was also the year that Sanders delivered on a campaign promise and brought Burlington a minor league baseball team: The Vermont Reds. “That was from the Cincinnati baseball team — not because of his politics,” insisted Sugarman, though a year later Sanders traveled to Nicaragua to hang out with the Sandinistas.

    UK Police Tell Subjects Not To Harm Their Attackers, Get A Rape Alarm
    The latest dispatch from the United Kingdom’s ongoing campaign to eliminate all forms of armed self-defense seems too incredible to be true. Unfortunately, after tracking down the origin of a publicly distributed statement regarding self-defense products on the country’s “Ask the Police” website, we can confirm that British subjects continue to live at the mercy of their potential attackers. Even to the point of baffling absurdity.

    The question at issue asks, “Are there any legal self defence products that I can buy?” Succinctly epitomizing the sad state of natural rights in Great Britain, the first sentence states, “The only fully legal self defence product at the moment is a rape alarm.”

    And to add even more insult to human dignity, the statement cautions subjects against the use of nearly any other type of defense product, and reads like an appeal for victims to graciously suffer criminal violence. The answer makes clear “You must not get a product which is made or adapted to cause a person injury. Possession of such a product in public (and in private in specific circumstances) is against the law.”

    The statement then addresses the legality of inert dye sprays that merely mark one’s attacker for later identification; in contrast to self-defense sprays like mace or pepper spray that inflict pain in order to halt an attack. The site is so concerned with the well-being of violent criminals, that in the context of dye sprays, it states,“be aware that even a seemingly safe product, deliberately aimed and sprayed in someone’s eyes, would become an offensive weapon because it would be used in a way that was intended to cause injury.”

    Whether it’s this detestable advice, police warning a woman not to display a knife in order to ward off intruders, warrantless firearm storage inspections, or desperate subjects being forced to defend their lives and property with cricket and baseball bats during riots, the UK government appears intent on wiping out any remaining vestiges of the traditional right to self-defense. We’d like to say that we won’t allow ourselves to be shocked by the next ludicrous episode from across the pond, but history shows they’ll somehow manage to astound.

    Meet the Democrats Who Do Want a Clinton Coronation
    Lots of Democrats in early-voting states say they want caucus season to offer a battle of ideas over nation’s future—not the coronation of a single candidate, Hillary Clinton.

    But the same feeling hasn’t taken hold among Democrats nationally. One surprising factor: race. Minority voters are comfortable with unifying behind Mrs. Clinton. White voters — heavily represented in the early states of Iowa and New Hampshire — are more apt to want a competition.

    Articles: The Left Goes Insane http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2015/05/the_left_goes_insane.html#.VWtElaIAewE.twitter

    May 31, 2015
    The Left Goes Insane
    It was Albert Einstein who defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” On some levels, he was correct, but insanity is actually the substitution of fantasy for reality. The guy who believes he’s Napoleon Bonaparte reincarnated and who is obsessively planning to re-conquer Europe is certifiably insane. The woman who believes she is Gaia and therefore divinized as a goddess is a nut case. Both are completely out of touch with reality and everyone surrounding them knows it.

    But wholesale denial of reality is not limited to just the occasional individual. Insanity can and does afflict whole groups of people.
    [..]
    Here in America, the madness of crowds is upon us. The Left has so suppressed the knowledge of reality and has so affixed itself to delusion that the crowds who comprise it and who follow it would have been straitjacketed a decade or two ago.

    How and why did the Left (and sometimes members of the Right who join them) go mad?

    We can look to Eric Voegelin’s Science, Politics and Gnosticism for some answers. Voegelin states that advocacy of most twentieth century nostrums such as the quackery of communism require that “the thinker suppresses an essential element of reality in order to be able to construct an image of man, or society, or history to suit his desires.”

    He writes that in order for the Left to maintain their dogma, certain realities must be excluded from thinking. “We shall not find the answer on the level of theoretic argument; for we have obviously gone beyond reason, if the relation to reality is so greatly disturbed that essential elements are on principle excluded from consideration.”

    In other words, in order to believe in the current dogmas of the Left, including the spurious quasi religion of “manmade climate change,” one must suspend huge chunks of reality, effectually denying elements and evidence of the created order (science) as well as refusing to see the nature of humanity and society as they really are (philosophy and theology).

    But the Left’s denial of reality also means concealment of its ultimate goals. Among those goals are the wish for absolute rule and the conversion of humans by force rather than by reason and persuasion.

    Where does CNN find these idiots?
    May 31, 2015
    On Friday May 29, CNN’s New Day show featured Chris Cuomo bloviating about a draw Mohammed free speech gathering in Arizona. He said the contest was not a freedom issue, because the right to free speech is certain, but rather a moral issue. He likened the contest to the use of the N-word.

    In fact, use of that word is selectively defined as hate speech. And moral or not, under those laws, it is illegal. Cuomo and Pamela Geller got into shouting match over that analogy. Cuomo went on to opine that the other real problem with the event, in addition to its immorality, was that there is not enough gun control, because a Marine had advised people to bring their guns.

    Mr. Cuomo forgot that it was a citizen bearing a legal gun who prevented a massacre in Geller’s draw Mohammed contest just a few weeks ago!

    Cuomo thinks it is immoral, in itself, to use free speech that offends a differing opinion. But most astonishing was his assertion that “[t]he First and Second Amendments weren’t put together to defend each other, that’s for sure.” Does Cuomo really not see the significance of the sequence of these amendments – the enumeration of rights followed by the right to bear arms to protect them? Can he really believe that the First and Second Amendments are not related?

    It seems that left-wing insanity is accelerating.

    NYT Religious Hypocrisy on Display: Again Runs Profane Virgin Mary Pic http://newsbusters.org/blogs/clay-waters/2015/05/29/nyts-artistic-display-religious-hypocrisy-runs-offensive-virgin-mary#.VWto4S8Qmro.twitter

    NYT’s Artistic Display of Religious Hypocrisy: Runs Offensive Virgin Mary Painting Once Again
    The New York Times’ hypocrisy regarding displays of “offensive” religious imagery runs unabated, as shown in a Scott Reyburn article in Friday’s Arts section on the sale of Chris Ofili’s controversial painting “The Holy Virgin Mary,” which shows the Virgin Mary clotted with elephant dung against a porn-collage background — and accompanied by a photograph of the offensive work.

    Yet when the paper refused to reprint a cartoon of Muhammad that appeared in the Paris satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo that resulted in the January 2015 massacre of 12 magazine staffers, it offered this smug, cowardly justification:

    Under Times standards, we do not normally publish images or other material deliberately intended to offend religious sensibilities. After careful consideration, Times editors decided that describing the cartoons in question would give readers sufficient information to understand today’s story.

    Not fear of violent reprisal, but fear of “causing offense.” So why does Ofili’s dung-clotted Virgin Mary get a pass?

    As noted before, the Times isn’t afraid to run all religiously offensive images. The paper has in the past run approving pictures of Ofili’s painting, which caused controversy when it hung in the Brooklyn Museum in 1999 during the term of NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who protested. On Friday, ignoring its previous self-righteous comments on not offending “religious sensibilities” when it comes to Muhammad, the Times once again ran a photo of the Virgin Mary.

    Obama’s DOJ To Circumvent Congress With ‘More Than A Dozen’ New Gun Controls – Breitbart http://bit.ly/1Qjodsg via @BreitbartNews

    Obama’s DOJ To Circumvent Congress With ‘More Than A Dozen’ New Gun Controls – Breitbart http://bit.ly/1Qjodsg via @BreitbartNews

    Obama’s DOJ To Circumvent Congress With ‘More Than A Dozen’ New Gun Controls

    Obama’s Department of Justice is working on “more than a dozen” new gun control regulations it plans to begin implementing apart from Congress. Some of the regulations are set to be put in place by November, others simply by the end of the Obama administration.

    According to The Hill, “the regulations range from new restrictions on high-powered pistols to gun storage requirements” and the issuance of “new rules expanding criteria for people who do not quality for gun ownership.”

    Part and parcel to this new “criteria” will be an ATF-implemented ban on gun ownership for anyone “convicted of a misdemeanor domestic violence.” Gun Owners of America’s Michael Hammond warns that under this rule the person barred from gun ownership “could be [someone] who spanked his kid, or yelled at his wife, or slapped her husband.”

    The new regulations will also include ATF enlargements on mental health-based gun ownership bans. Hammond summed this up by saying, “The Obama administration is trying very hard to disqualify people from owning a gun on the basis that they are seeing a psychologist.” And the NRA pointed out that because most mentally ill persons pose no threat to society, the new regulations will actually become “snares [for] masses of mostly harmless individuals.”

    The NRA added: “Not only is this unjust and stigmatizing, it creates disincentives for those who need mental health treatment to seek it, increasing whatever risks are associated with untreated mental illness.”

    In other words, people who might actually need some minor mental health attention may refuse to pursue it for fear of losing their guns.

    Greece, creditors agree on need for quick deal as talks continue

  • $59154503

    Socialism working as usual:

    Greece, creditors agree on need for quick deal as talks continue
    Greece and its European creditors agreed on the need to reach a cash-for-reforms deal quickly as Athens missed a self-imposed Sunday deadline for reaching an agreement to unlock aid, sources close to the talks said.

    Athens and its euro zone and International Monetary Fund (IMF) creditors have been locked in talks for months on a reforms agreement. Without a deal, Athens risks default or bankruptcy in weeks.

    The pressure has intensified in recent days as Athens faces a payment to the International Monetary Fund on June 5 as well as the expiration of its bailout program on June 30.

    The government said this week it was looking for a deal by Sunday, but sources close to the talks at the so-called Brussels Group of EU/IMF creditors said that was unlikely.

    In a phone call on Sunday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande – the second in four days – Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras pushed for a political solution for the country’s economic troubles.

    Kathleen Willey: Hillary a ‘money-hungry hypocrite’
    Bill ‘showing early signs of dementia’
    Kathleen Willey, the former White House aide who claims President Bill Clinton sexually assaulted her in 1993 during his first term, now suspects the former president suffers from dementia, and calls Hillary Clinton a “money-hungry” hypocrite who looks “awfully haggard” and is the “worst role mother for a wife and a mother and a politician.”

    Willey, author of the book “Target: Caught in the Crosshairs of Bill and Hillary Clinton,” made her scathing comments in an interview airing tonight on Aaron Klein Investigative Radio, broadcast on New York’s AM 970 and Philadelphia 990 AM, as well as online.

    She is now seriously questioning the mental health of both of the Clintons.

    “[Hillary] is really looking awfully haggard these days,” Willey said.

    “After watching [Bill’s] performance with [NBC News’ Cynthia] McFadden, when he said that I’ve gotta pay my bills, I think he’s showing early signs of dementia or something. He’s not the old Bill Clinton that we all remember. I mean, he was all over the place. Now you’re seeing clips of [Hillary] talking to herself all the time. I think that I want somebody in there who knows what they’re doing, and money isn’t the No. 1 issue for them. They have enough money. They made $30 million … in the last 15 months on speaking engagements. Isn’t that enough?”

They made $30 million … in the last 15 months on speaking engagements. Isn’t that enough?”

    Tsipras accuses bailout monitors of making ‘absurd’ demands
    Greece’s chances of striking a deal to access a much-needed €7.2bn in rescue aid looked even bleaker on Sunday after Alexis Tsipras, prime minister, accused bailout monitors of making “absurd” demands and seeking to impose “harsh punishment” on Athens.

    Mr Tsipras’s accusations, made in Le Monde newspaper, came only days after his government claimed an agreement was imminent. They have increased the sense of chaos around negotiations in the week many believe a deal is needed to avoid a Greek default.

    Do you feel the Bernie-mentum?

    Yes, of course, I am talking about the presidential candidacy of Sen. Bernie Sanders, which the independent/socialist from Vermont made official last week on the shores of Lake Champlain.

    And, no, I am not being entirely flip. The truth of the matter is that Sanders has quickly emerged as the leading rival — and liberal alternative — to the juggernaut candidacy of former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    Michael Eric Dyson: Sanders Rising Because ‘There’s a Little Bit of Socialism’ in Everyone http://www.mediaite.com/tv/michael-eric-dyson-sanders-rising-because-theres-a-little-bit-of-socialism-in-everyone/ via @mediaite

    Michael Eric Dyson: Sanders Rising Because ‘There’s a Little Bit of Socialism’ in Everyone
    A recent poll of Democratic presidential candidate obviously puts Hillary Clinton in first place, but Senator Bernie Sanders is actually in second place with 15 percent support. And that might come as a surprise to some people, seeing as how Sanders openly calls himself a socialist and publicly takes positions that many on the right think President Obama believes in secret.

    ABC’s This Week panel discussed the chances of Clinton’s Democratic challengers, with Kristen Soltis Anderson calling Sanders “very far outside the mainstream.” Michael Eric Dyson said that people might consider Martin O’Malley “the acceptable face of the left” because of how far-left Sanders is and how further right Clinton is.

    But most interesting to Dyson is that “Bernie Sanders is proving there’s a little bit of socialism in a lot of people on the left.”

    The Left’s Reign of Terror Continues in Baltimore

    The Left’s Reign of Terror Continues in Baltimore
    As Maryland’s largest city grieves for a mother and her 7-year-old son found shot to death, it is becoming clear that criminals emboldened by left-wingers are terrorizing the people of Baltimore like never before.

    The city’s radical, left-wing, thug-loving mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake (D), has emasculated the local police she despises and abandoned her constituents by giving criminals a green light to do as they please. Police officers have been ordered not to do their jobs which is just as well because many of them are quite justifiably terrified of doing their jobs in the current environment. Mobs of as many as 50 people now routinely assemble when police arrive at crime scenes. Are they serving as community watchdogs or are they there to intimidate cops? Maybe both.

    At this rate it won’t be long before Baltimore dethrones Detroit as the premier municipal showcase for left-wing urban policy failures. Ominously, this is America’s Mad Max-like future if it continues on the suicidal course set by President Obama, a man whose proudest accomplishment has been to serve as a rabble-rousing Marxist community organizer.

    American socialism’s day in the sun
    http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/9867696e-05dc-11e5-b676-00144feabdc0.html

    American socialism’s day in the sun
    Leftwing politicians are in electoral retreat across most of the western world. The one exception is the United States. At 15 per cent in the Democratic polls, Bernie Sanders, the senator from Vermont, is riding higher than any US socialist since Eugene Debs ran for the White House a century ago.

    The fact that Mr Sanders has very little chance of unseating Hillary Clinton is beside the point. His popularity is dragging her leftward. If he flames out, other left-wingers, such as Martin O’Malley, the former governor of Maryland who entered the race at the weekend, are ready to pick up the baton. Elizabeth Warren, the populist Massachusetts senator, will continue to prod Mrs Clinton from outside the field. The more Mrs Clinton adopts their language, the harder it will be for her to reclaim the centre ground next year. Yet she is only following the crowd. A surprisingly large chunk of Democrats are happy to break the US taboo against socialism.

    For all the crimes committed against Native and black Americans, the US republic came into being without an aristocracy or feudal serfdom. It was born a middle class country with equality of opportunity as its creed. That made it a radically different place to the old world it had left behind.

    Such differences are no longer obvious. No one, including Mr Sanders, is talking about nationalising chunks of the US economy. Yet his policies are radical by American standards. He wants a single-payer healthcare system, along the lines of Canada, or the UK. He would abolish tuition fees for instate higher education. He would drive big money out of US politics, redistribute income, mandate paid holidays and increase social security benefits. He would also break up the “too big to fail” Wall Street banks. “Are we prepared to take on the enormous political and economic power of the billionaire class,” asks Mr Sanders, “or do we continue to slide into . . . oligarchy?”

    Even Salon is pretty disgusted with Hillary Clinton.

    Among all the rivers of money that have flowed to the Clinton family, one seems to raise the biggest national security questions of all: the stream of cash that came from 20 foreign governments who relied on weapons export approvals from Hillary Clinton’s State Department.

    Federal law designates the secretary of state as “responsible for the continuous supervision and general direction of sales” of arms, military hardware and services to foreign countries. In practice, that meant that Clinton was charged with rejecting or approving weapons deals — and when it came to Clinton Foundation donors, Hillary Clinton’s State Department did a whole lot of approving.
    […]
    As just one of many examples, in its 2011 Human Rights Report, Clinton’s State Department slammed Algeria’s government for imposing “restrictions on freedom of assembly and association,” tolerating “arbitrary killing,” “widespread corruption” and a “lack of judicial independence.”

    That year, the Algerian government donated $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation and the next year Clinton’s State Department approved a one-year 70 percent increase in military export authorizations to the country. The jump included authorizations for almost 50,000 items classified as “toxicological agents, including chemical agents, biological agents and associated equipment.” The State Department had not authorized the export of any of such items to Algeria the year before.

    Crowds turn out to see Clinton challengers Sanders, O’Malley in Iowa

    The two Democrats who have formally emerged to challenge Hillary Clinton for their party’s 2016 presidential nomination visited Iowa this weekend. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders attracted overflow crowds in Ames and Davenport, then Sanders capped his three-day trip with a Saturday night stop in Kensett, where more than 300 people greeted him.

    “People are extremely frustrated with status quo economics, the greed of the top one percent, establishment politics,” Sanders told reporters on his way into Kensett’s community center. “…People want a movement, to be part of a movement that takes on the billionaire class. Let me be as blunt as I can be: you have a handful of people in this country with enormous economic and political power who are getting it all.”

    Sixty-eight-year-old Tom Reid of Northwood was there in Kensett. He is hoping Sanders “yanks” Hillary Clinton “to the left.”

    Daniel Hannan, a British member of the EU for the Conservative Party, has an excellent essay commemorating the 800-year anniversary of Magna Carta which happens this year. His point is that the rights we celebrate today stem from that document, not because these are universal rights, but because institutions grew up to protect those rights. And that was certainly not inevitable. He also persuasively argues that it was America that truly valued the Magna Carta and helped give it meaning.

    Eight hundred years is a long wait. We British have, by any measure, been slow to recognize what we have. Americans, by contrast, have always been keenly aware of the document, referring to it respectfully as the Magna Carta.

    Why? Largely because of who the first Americans were. Magna Carta was reissued several times throughout the 14th and 15th centuries, as successive Parliaments asserted their prerogatives, but it receded from public consciousness under the Tudors, whose dynasty ended with the death of Elizabeth I in 1603.
    […]
    There was a divergence between English and American conceptions of Magna Carta. In the Old World, it was thought of, above all, as a guarantor of parliamentary supremacy; in the New World, it was already coming to be seen as something that stood above both Crown and Parliament. This difference was to have vast consequences in the 1770s….

    And indeed, Magna Carta conceives rights in negative terms, as guarantees against state coercion. No one can put you in prison or seize your property or mistreat you other than by due process. This essentially negative conception of freedom is worth clinging to in an age that likes to redefine rights as entitlements—the right to affordable health care, the right to be forgotten and so on.

    It is worth stressing, too, that Magna Carta conceived freedom and property as two expressions of the same principle. The whole document can be read as a lengthy promise that the goods of a free citizen will not be arbitrarily confiscated by someone higher up the social scale.

    Jeff Jacoby – It’s Socialism, not Deodorant, That Starves the Poor http://townhall.com/columnists/jeffjacoby/2015/05/31/its-socialism-not-deodorant-that-starves-the-poor-n2006249

    It’s Socialism, not Deodorant, That Starves the Poor
    WHAT THIS country needs, says Bernie Sanders, is less deodorant.

    The 73-year-old senator from Vermont, now running for the Democratic presidential nomination, told CNBC’s John Harwood in an interview on Tuesday that because American consumers can choose from so many brands of personal-care products, kids are going to bed with empty bellies.

    “You don’t necessarily need a choice of 23 underarm spray deodorants or of 18 different pairs of sneakers when children are hungry in this country,” Sanders lamented. He didn’t explain exactly howthe profusion of toiletries and athletic footwear leads to childhood hunger, but for the only self-described socialist in Congress, it is no doubt a matter of faith that the abundance of capitalism must generate poverty and undernourishment.

    In the real world, the opposite is true: Hunger and deprivation are rarest where markets and trade are freest. Food in America couldn’t possibly be more plentiful; no one starves because too many economic resources are being channeled into marketing Old Spice instead of oatmeal. But in the socialist delusion, centralized control is always preferable to voluntary enterprise. Better that government czars should decide what is produced, and impose their plan from above. After all, when buyers and sellers are left free to choose for themselves, grocery and department store aisles fill up with “too many” goods that consumers desire to buy. And that’s not the worst of it: In the process of fulfilling those desires, some capitalists may be getting wealthy.

    Sanders’s suggestion that more kids would eat if only deodorant came in fewer varieties was roundly mocked. Wherever his collectivist ideology has been enforced, however, the consequences — shortages, rationing, bare shelves, long lines, grinding austerity — are anything but funny.

    Winning With Socialism: Venezuela Hits 510% Inflation, Worst In The World
    But hey, let’s elect Progressives that want to take us there…
    Via Truth Revolt:

    The Foundation for Economic Education reports that Venezuela’s bolivar is collapsing and its annual implied inflation rate has soared to 510%:

    Using black-market exchange rate data that The Johns Hopkins-Cato Institute Troubled Currencies Project has collected over the past year, I estimate Venezuela’s current annual implied inflation rate to be 510%. This is the highest rate in the world. It’s well above the second-highest rate: Syria’s, which stands at 84%.

    This follows on the heels of the Cato Institute’s report in April that Venezuela had “truly achieved socialism”: “shortages, queues, black markets, and official theft.”

    Mission accomplished.

    Reynolds: Today’s college feminists are too fragile to read
    When a professor criticizes equal rights law, it is not a violation of equal rights.
    Feminist professor Laura Kipnis of Northwestern University published an essay in The Chronicle of Higher Education in February, decrying “sexual paranoia” on campus and the way virtually any classroom mention of sex was being subjected to an odd sort of neo-Victorian prudery: “Students were being encouraged to regard themselves as such exquisitely sensitive creatures that an errant classroom remark could impede their education, as such hothouse flowers that an unfunny joke was likely to create lasting trauma. … In the post-Title IX landscape, sexual panic rules. Slippery slopes abound.”

    This article sat poorly with campus activists, who in response reported her for sexual harassment, on the theory that this article (and a follow-up tweet — yes, that’s right, a tweet) somehow might have created a hostile environment for female students, which would violate Title IX as interpreted by the Education Department. Because, you see, female students, according to feminists, are too fragile to face disagreement. And they’ll demonstrate this fragility by subjecting you to Stalinist persecution if you challenge them, apparently.

    GUN-FREE ZONES ARE NOT SAFE
    I love how this works. Gun-Free zones are becoming the main place where anyone has to worry about getting shot. There are countless examples within the last decade such as FT Hood, DC Shipyard, Various Schools among others where violence occurs and guns are restricted. . While the event in Garland, TX was not a Gun-Free zone, only people with permits can carry guns in TX both concealed or unconcealed. The police had guns and took down the terrorists just a hair too late as one of the guards was struck by enemy fire. Everyone else remained unscathed.

    The flip side of that coin is all too apparent at the Free Speech event in Phoenix, AZ, where they held a Draw Mo contest as well as an evening protest. The participants were encouraged to bring guns and … imagine that … no violence, no arrests and plenty of guns! There were around 500 total paticipants, all of whom were speaking freely. No problems. I’ve always stood behind the idea that if everyone carried a gun, criminals would think twice before committing a crime and many crimes would never have taken place at all. I applaud you AZ!

    Arizona is among roughly a half-dozen states which adhere to the Constitutional Carry logic. This means that any legal gun owner may carry a firearm either concealed or not. I pray that my state adopts this too but I’m not holding my breath quite yet. We may well be the next though. We are allowed to Open Carry at will but concealed carry has a permit requirement in Louisiana.

    There are steps being taken in Oklahoma right now to allow teachers to carry firearms in schools. Obviously, there will have to be certain responsibilities to adhere to but overall, I think this is a positive move. Teachers don’t have to announce whether or not they are carrying, so students will not know the difference until their lives are saved, should a tragedy on school grounds occur.

    While nobody was looking, the Islamic State launched a new, deadly offensive http://wapo.st/1AJK9es

    While nobody was looking, the Islamic State launched a new, deadly offensive
    GAZIANTEP, Turkey — Syrian rebels appealed for U.S. airstrikes to counter a new offensive by the Islamic State in the northern province of Aleppo that could reshape the battlefield in Syria.

    The surprise assault, launched over the weekend, opened a new front in the multi-pronged war being waged by the extremist group across Iraq and Syria, and it underscored the Islamic State’s capacity to catch its enemies off guard.

    The push — which came on the heels of the miltants’ capture of the Syrian city of Palmyra and the western Iraqi city of Ramadi late last month — took them within reach of the strategically vital town of Azaz on the Turkish border.

    Obama: 'We Have Put Our International Relationships on Very Strong Footing' – Breitbart http://bit.ly/1AJKPAs

    Obama: ‘We Have Put Our International Relationships on Very Strong Footing’
    Never mind the world burning outside your window – President Obama thinks he’s been doing a terrific job on the international front. From the Associated Press:

    President Barack Obama is offering a glimpse into how he would want history to judge his presidency by emphasizing the U.S. recovery, his health care law and his foreign policy. His summary was as much legacy building as it was a response to criticism of his tenure from the growing list of Republicans presidential candidates.

    Obama argued that his administration has brought new international respect for the U.S. “We have put our international relationships on very strong footing,” he said.

    A “recovery” that just gave us a negative 0.7 percent contraction, a health care plan that hasn’t lived up to a single one of its promises – and is bidding to blow health insurance costs into orbit next year – and foreign policy that wiped out America’s influence in virtually every corner of the world, especially the Middle East, where the gains in Iraq were thrown away, and the group Obama misjudged as the “junior varsity league” of terrorism is sacking cities? What’s not to love? Hey, America is more popular in Cuba and Iran now, right?

    Obamacare: 2016 sticker shock
    Health insurers are proposing to raise Obamacare rates more than in the past — some by more than 70 percent — now that they are finally equipped with all the information they need to price those plans.

    Plans wanting to raise rates by at least 10 percent next year posted the proposed increase online Monday, as required by the 2010 healthcare law. Insurers are allowed to raise rates each year, but they must publish significant increases ahead of time.

    Bob Schieffer Wonders if Reporters ‘Were Not Skeptical Enough’ about Obama | National Review Online http://po.st/9lyikQ via @NRO

    Bob Schieffer Wonders if Reporters ‘Were Not Skeptical Enough’ about Obama
    The retiring host of CBS’s Face the Nation, Bob Schieffer gave a sort of exit interview to Fox News’ Howard Kurtz on Sunday and raised some eyebrows. Kurtz asked him if he thought the media gave President Obama an “incredibly easy ride” during his 2008 campaign. Schieffer acknowledged that was possible given the obviously historic nature of Obama’s campaign: “I don’t know. Maybe we were not skeptical enough. It was a campaign.” Schieffer then went on claim that it wasn’t the role of journalists to raise issues about a candidate. “I think, as journalists, basically what we do is watch the campaign and report what the two sides are doing,” he said. Nice sentiments, but it’s hard to believe that Schieffer, a veteran of 50 years covering politics, really thinks that’s how political journalism works in practice. Journalists may present balanced views in a story, but their choice of stories can tilt coverage sharply for or against a candidate. In Obama’s case, the selection of stories about him gave him priceless political advantage.

    Just before the 2008 election, Mark Halperin, co-author of the campaign tell-all Game Change and now a Bloomberg TV host, was asked at a conference if the media had been too soft on Obama. He answered yes, and went on to say that through the subtle choice of which stories to cover and where to deploy investigative resources, the national media had handed Obama “hundreds of millions in free publicity.”

    According to Big Brother Watch (PDF), law enforcement agencies in the United Kingdom have requested the personal metadata of citizens nearly three quarters of a million times in the past two years. That is, between 2012 and 2014, UK cops asked for identifying details pertaining to a text, email, phone call or search some 733,237 times. More than 90 percent of those requests were subsequently granted. That averages out to one fulfilled request every two minutes.

    D.C. To Court: Don’t Make Violent Criminals Face Armed Resistance
    As we reported last week, a federal judge on May 18 barred enforcement of provisions of D.C. law that effectively grant to the police chief the discretion to decide who is eligible for D.C. concealed carry licenses and thus who may lawfully exercise the right to bear arms in public for self-defense. According to an article in the Washington Times, District officials on Tuesday asked the court to suspend that order, pending further proceedings in the case known as Wrenn v. District of Columbia.
    [..]
    Nevertheless, in its latest filings with the court, the D.C. Attorney General’s Office continued to insist, “The risk of a gun-related tragedy — accidental or deliberate — by new licensees who have no particularized fear of any specific danger to their safety, outweighs plaintiffs’ speculative fears about any imminent need to defend themselves from a random, public attack.” In so doing, D.C. officials dismissed the potential for tragedy – obvious to all who’ve followed recent news – that could befall a resident or visitor to D.C. who would have no effective recourse against an illegally armed criminal only too willing to exploit the advantage the District provides to him over the law-abiding. The District also ignores that similar drastic predictions of “gun related tragedy … by … licensees” have proven false in the 42 states accounting for 74% of the U.S. population that recognize the right to carry concealed either through shall-issue permits or simply by not banning the practice for those not otherwise prohibited from possessing firearms.

    After Six Years of Obamanomics: Five Things You Need to Know

    1.) Worst Recovery Ever
    As already noted by the GWP, the Obama economic recovery is dismal when compared to Reagan’s. Ronald Reagan’s economic plan saw GDP surge at a 3.5% clip – 4.9% after the recession. That’s a 32% bump. During the Obama years, thanks to his big government policies, the US economy has stalled. The US economy has grown an anemic 9.6% during the Obama years (excluding the 1st Quarter 2015’s dismal number). With the 1st Quarter of 2015 GDP declining at -0.7%, Obama has the lowest average 1st Quarter GDP growth of any president in history. In addition, using the number of jobs recovered after the recession as the measurement, then Obama’s recovery is the worst recovery ever.
    2.) Worst Labor Participation Ever
    http://1-ps.googleusercontent.com/hk/9dO3E1tyAM9FEJoQjUgzLfLy1j/www.thegatewaypundit.com/wp-content/uploads/482x228xlabor-participation-rate.jpg.pagespeed.ic.NESXPEpp_rfqzyQyfRvw.jpg
    The labor participation rate since Obama took over has plummeted to rates not seen since the Carter years (see chart above). The Obama regime has set the record for more Americans not working (more than 102 million) than at any time in US history.
    3.) Record Debt and Deficits
    Currently the US the government has more than $18 trillion in Debt. Obama has nearly doubled the national debt in his 6 years with it somewhere near $9 to $10 trillion when he took office. Per http://www.whitehouse.gov, the accumulative total for all US Deficits for all presidents combined was $11.6 trillion through the end of 2014. A closer look at the deficits shows that the Obama Administration has accumulated more in deficits in six years than all prior years combined! (Note that the debt and deficits don’t even account for the estimated $205 trillion in unfunded liabilities now owed by the government, much of which has been accumulated during the Obama administration.) How will we ever pay any of this back?
    4.) Poverty, Food Stamps and Welfare Programs at Record Highs
    http://2-ps.googleusercontent.com/hk/9dO3E1tyAM9FEJoQjUgzLfLy1j/www.thegatewaypundit.com/wp-content/uploads/344x332xus-debt.png.pagespeed.ic.BvbnXgJP6Jzl2AtX_ihS.png
    5.) Assault on the Middle Class
    The middle class has struggled since Obama became President. According to Reuters, Federal Reserve survey data show families in the middle fifth of the income scale now earn less and their net worth is lower than when Obama took office.

With the 1st Quarter of 2015 GDP declining at -0.7%, Obama has the lowest average 1st Quarter GDP growth of any president in history. In addition, using the number of jobs recovered after the recession as the measurement, then Obama’s recovery is the worst recovery ever.
    2.) Worst Labor Participation Ever
    http://1-ps.googleusercontent.com/hk/9dO3E1tyAM9FEJoQjUgzLfLy1j/www.thegatewaypundit.com/wp-content/uploads/482x228xlabor-participation-rate.jpg.pagespeed.ic.NESXPEpp_rfqzyQyfRvw.jpg
    The labor participation rate since Obama took over has plummeted to rates not seen since the Carter years (see chart above). The Obama regime has set the record for more Americans not working (more than 102 million) than at any time in US history.
    3.) Record Debt and Deficits
    Currently the US the government has more than $18 trillion in Debt. Obama has nearly doubled the national debt in his 6 years with it somewhere near $9 to $10 trillion when he took office. Per http://www.whitehouse.gov, the accumulative total for all US Deficits for all presidents combined was $11.6 trillion through the end of 2014. A closer look at the deficits shows that the Obama Administration has accumulated more in deficits in six years than all prior years combined! (Note that the debt and deficits don’t even account for the estimated $205 trillion in unfunded liabilities now owed by the government, much of which has been accumulated during the Obama administration.) How will we ever pay any of this back?
    4.) Poverty, Food Stamps and Welfare Programs at Record Highs
    http://2-ps.googleusercontent.com/hk/9dO3E1tyAM9FEJoQjUgzLfLy1j/www.thegatewaypundit.com/wp-content/uploads/344x332xus-debt.png.pagespeed.ic.BvbnXgJP6Jzl2AtX_ihS.png
    5.) Assault on the Middle Class
    The middle class has struggled since Obama became President. According to Reuters, Federal Reserve survey data show families in the middle fifth of the income scale now earn less and their net worth is lower than when Obama took office.

    What surprised me in America: my speech at Lincoln Dinner https://shar.es/12WCUR via @sharethis

    What surprised me in America: my speech at Lincoln Dinner
    On May 12th, 2015 I was invited to speak alongside Governor Rick Perry at a Lincoln Dinner organized by Okaloosa Republican Executive Committee in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. I was supposed to warm up the crowd for the Honorable Rick Perry, but the order of appearances was switched at the last moment; Perry gave his keynote speech first, and then I stepped in, thanking the Governor for warming up the crowd for me.

    I titled my speech What surprised me in America: an immigrant’s account of the good, the bad, and the ugly. There was no way I could cover this topic in 20 minutes, so I’m expecting more invitations from groups who will be willing to give me twice as much time or more.

    I hate ANYTHING by Marx. Well, except this. The rest of it (And the million+ copies of it) can go into a coal furnace. I’m utterly in love with the idea of America and what the Founders had in mind. I look at their vision for America and say “Why cant THAT be America today?”

    A guy much wiser than I once said “I love my country, but I hate my government”. I can’t remember who he was, but I’m sure that there are a lot more people with this view than when he said it. I’m one of them. I read the news articles and whatnot and get incredibly sad about the state of the government, but then I go for a walk out on the road and see all kinds of people with their own lives & ways of doing things and each with their own different houses, vehicles, styles of dress, etc., all in just a few miles of road or so, and I love America.

    We might have a Soviet government, but we, as a whole, haven’t succumbed to the Soviet idea that the gov’t and the state is allowed to control and spy on every aspect of our lives and tamper with them as it sees fit. We haven’t succumbed, as a whole, to the terrible fantasy of Communism. The film of empty Soviet grocery stores hasn’t been duplicated in America yet. If you even suggest the idea that the government should put Cameras in every home and watch them like Orwellian Telescreens to a random sampling of Americans I bet you 100% of them would say that it’s a terrible and tyrannical idea.

    I sincerely believe we can tun back the clock, but we’ll only do it with morals and principles. All the democrats have on their side, when you break down their arguments, is the promise of free stuff, and most people are unprincipled in this world, so they’ll take the free stuff. The free stuff includes healthcare, money (welfare), cell phones, abortion pills and rubbers, jobs, etc. The free stuff is the sugar to get the “medicine”/poison of Communism down the throat of America; It’s the magician’s misdirection and sleight of hand. If people are principled and have morals, they won’t take the free stuff, and they’ll elect people WITH morals and principles that will do their jobs right. But, with the way the world is, I’m afraid that we won’t ever again have the volume of moraled and principled people that are required for this system to work in the way described. A slogan for this “free stuff” theory could be: Don’t take the Free Stuff, take the FreeDOM.

    Tom Paine wrote these quotes in Common Sense, and they’re as true now as they were when he wrote Common Sense: Quote:
    Some writers have so confounded society with government, as to leave little or no distinction between them; whereas they are not only different, but have different origins. Society is produced by our wants, and government by our wickedness; the former promotes our happiness POSITIVELY by uniting our affections, the latter NEGATIVELY by restraining our vices. The one encourages intercourse, the other creates distinctions. The first a patron, the last a punisher.

    Quote:
    Men who look upon themselves born to reign, and others to obey, soon grow insolent; selected from the rest of mankind their minds are early poisoned by importance; and the world they act in differs so materially from the world at large, that they have but little opportunity of knowing its true interest, and when they succeed to the government are frequently the most ignorant and unfit of any throughout the dominions.

    Quote:
    We have every opportunity and every encouragement before us, to form the noblest purest constitution on the face of the earth. We have it in our power to begin the world over again. A situation, similar to the present, hath not happened since the days of Noah until now. The birthday of a new world is at hand, and a race of men, perhaps as numerous as all Europe contains, are to receive their portion of freedom from the event of a few months.

    Quote:
    But there is another and greater distinction for which no truly natural or religious reason can be assigned, and that is, the distinction of men into KINGS and SUBJECTS. Male and female are the distinctions of nature, good and bad the distinctions of heaven; but how a race of men came into the world so exalted above the rest, and distinguished like some new species, is worth enquiring into, and whether they are the means of happiness or of misery to mankind.

    I am constantly amazed by people who come here from the former Soviet Union and her satellite states who have to explain to home grown proglodytes how patently insane they are to be born in a country that is a brilliant experiment in personal liberty and work to throw it all away.
     
    I thought I’d post some humor that mirrors what you have done here. Hopefully it’s something you haven’t already seen. I’ve forgotten where I dug it up from because I’d like to attribute it to the orginal author but it’s been a few years and I not only have forgotten but cannot find the orginal post. I took the liberty to add a few updates at the end:
     
    If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
     
    If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
     
    If the only school curriculum allowed to explain how we got here is evolution, but the government stops a $15 million construction project to keep a rare spider from evolving to extinction … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
     
    If you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book, but not to vote who runs the government … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
     
    If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines with more than ten rounds, but gives 20 F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
     
    If, in the largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not a 24-ounce soda because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
     
    If an 80-year-old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a woman in a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
     
    If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
     
    If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
     
    If children are forcibly removed from parents who discipline them with spankings while children of addicts are left in filth and drug infested “homes”… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
     
    If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government
    intrusion, while not working is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing, and free cell phones … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
     
    If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to incentivize NOT working with 99 weeks of Unemployment checks and no requirement to prove they applied but can’t find work … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
     
    If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big screen TV while your neighbor buys iPhones, TV’s and new cars, and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
     
    If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more “safe” according to the government … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
     
    If you can be forced out as CEO of the company you founded for stating your opinion, despite a document that protects your opinion … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
     
    If the top cop in the country incites a riot where the rioters shoot cops… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
    If legislators approve a nominee to become the head of the Justice Department who is confused about the meaning of the word “illegal” instead of dismissing her as grossly unqualified for the job… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

    The Soft-Soaping Of Socialism In The U.S. http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials/060115-755173-the-soft-soaping-of-socialism-in-the-us.htm #IBDEditorials via @IBDinvestors

    The Soft-Soaping Of Socialism In The U.S.
    For years, Sanders, an avowed, unapologetic socialist, was viewed as an anomaly of U.S. political life, an eccentric whose atypical ideology reflected the supposed quirkiness of his home state of Vermont.
    […]
    In the Huffington Post, Distinguished Professor Peter Dreier of Occidental College, one of Barack Obama’s alma maters, declared, “Bernie Sanders’ Socialism Is as American as Apple Pie.”

    Such is the new narrative about Sanders, 73, whose ideology grew out of the same 1930s roots as all past socialist movements, even as America since the Reagan era has moved toward free markets and taken much of the world with it.

    Sure, Sanders calls himself a “democratic socialist” and says that his model is the all-encompassing welfare state of Sweden, not the Soviet Union. No comment from him, however, about the reforms that Sweden has made over the last decade to rid itself of the state embrace that’s choked economic life or the demographic losses endured as the young move out or lose interest in forming families.

    Also under the democratic socialist banner is Venezuela, where citizens have lost not only all their prosperity and access to goods but their civil freedoms as well.

    Every last government agency there has been politicized since the 1998 election of Hugo Chavez, ending civil society, while the separation of powers has been rubbed away in the name of “the revolution.”

    As a result, political dissidents have been thrown in prisons without trial. Others have lost the right to leave the country. Still more have had their businesses expropriated. More still have been victims of political thuggery from government-sponsored private goons.

    Like Sweden, Venezuela is no country for young men. A study of professors at Gervasio Rubio Rural Pedagogic Institute reported last week in El Universal showed that large numbers of Venezuela’s young would rather deal drugs than go to school.

    It is just amazing that the federal government continues to focus more on targeting its political enemies than the terrori
