Wish I'd said that!

In recent decades, the ACLU has used its so-called "wall" to fight tooth and nail to prevent government sponsorship of the Pledge of Allegiance, memorial crosses, Ten Commandments displays, nativity scenes, Bible displays, and virtually every other acknowdgement of America's religious heritage.

At the same time, it is worthwhile to note that there have been some instances in which the ACLU has endorsed public displays of religion. For example, When New York City Mayor Rudi Giuliani threatened to cut taxpayer funding from the Brooklyn Museum of Art for displaying a painting of the Virgin Mary with cow dung and pictures of female sexual organs pasted all over her body, the ACLU was first in line to defend the display. U.S. District Court Judge Nina Gershon ruled that New York City's elected officials were not allowed to place conditions on the museum's funding.

In another instance, the ACLU offered its support to the taxpayer-funded National Endowment for the Arts, after the agency sponsored an art show featuring "Piss Christ" - an exhibit consisting of a crucifix submerged in a jar of urine.

In the ACLU's myopic world, it appears that the only permissible publicly-funded displays of religion are those which blatantly mock or disparage the Christian faith.

Power play

Did you hear about the non-binding House resolution that voted in favor of Puerto Rican statehood? Unless you're a Glenn Beck fan (or read  New American), you probably didn't, since he was the only reporter of the story to hit the media the day before the vote occurred. Yet another sterling example of the Obama malAdminstration's version of 'transparency', and, incidentally, Beck's cutting-edge reporting and analysis of the sinister operations of our government.  He is doing the job of journalists who have seemingly gone off to become government propagandists. The final vote was 223-169 in favor of the resolution, with more than 50 Republicrats going along with it. What people don't realize is that it was just another step in a massive power play to secure a huge potential voting block that will keep the Demoncrats in power for a generation or more. While the vote was only a resolution, it served to take one more option off the table when it next comes up for a vote, bringing the island one step closer to statehood.

What's so bad about that, you ask?  Well, currently Puerto Rico pays no income tax, while reaping virtually all the benefits of statehood. That's one big reason the islanders have voted against statehood several times.

The Progressives are agitating through their numerous front groups for Puerto Ricans, for illegal immigrants, for ex-convicts, and for residents of Washington, D.C. to push for voting rights. And it begs the question, who would be the primary beneficiary of those votes?  (Of course, there are "front groups" on every side; but which are trying to defend America, and which are trying to weaken it?)

Question: when does a conspiracy theory actually become conspiracy truth? There is such an immense and far-reaching web of deceit in play right now that it's nearly impossible to imagine or wrap your head around it. The vast majority of what used to be called journalists are virtually silent on the all-encompassing plot to undermine America's existence as a free Republic. Generations of us have been deliberately dumbed down in respect to our heritage, our history, our form of government and our personal responsibilities, because an ignorant or nervous populace is an easily-led populace. After more than a century of socialist intellectual-elitist subterfuge, we have finally reached the tipping point where those behind the scenes truly believe they merely need to give us a final push over the edge and they will reach their own perverse Nirvana: a "brave new world" where truth is irrelevant and meaning is only what the State requires it to be. Most Americans haven't got a clue. Hey, we all begin life with the meter at 'zero'.  But the real tragedy is that most of them wouldn't care even if they did know. Incidentally, if the Progressives (regardless of party) get all they want, how soon do you think it will be before they repeal the 22nd Amendment?  And you thought the Bushes were a dynasty?
The new Mexican-American War?  Anyone not living in a cave or getting their news exclusively from MSNBC and their ilk knows that there is a war going on at our southern border. Mexican drug gangs are quickly turning into major power players ("do as we say or we'll cut your family's heads off")south of the border, and thugs are now making military-style incursions across the border into our own country. While their hit-and-run attacks don't always go as planned, Tucson, Arizona has become the No. 2 kidnapping capital of the world.  Fed up with these foreign incursions, kidnappings, tortures, murders, and the utter non-response of the federal government, Arizona finally took matters into their own hands and enacted a law allowing police to arrest ILLEGAL aliens. The law doesn't specify race or point of origin, and should be a model for other states, since we seem to be under a subtle attack from many nations, as well as from our own government and social elites.

As must now be expected in an age when sanity has been displaced as the ruling thought process, mobs of people are trailing behind Al Sharpton and other race-baiting, opportunistic miscreants to shout down the AZ law. The obnoxious Left is raging against the law, falling back on their usual meme of calling supporters racists or "Nazis". 

Every time you hear someone on the Left call a conservative a Nazi, know that it is evidence of how deliberately crappy and indoctrinational our non-educational system has become. I mean, how long has it been since a teacher actually taught that the term "Nazi" was a German contraction for "National Socialist"?  In truth, one of the primary and most effective (against an uninformed populace) weapons of the insidious Left is their skill at accusing their enemies of their own sins.  I believe the term is "guilt transferrance".  It is the way that liars typically win arguments, and how evil governments rewrite history to make themselves look like heroes, and make the good guys appear to be the bad guys. Want examples? Compare American history textbooks from a century ago to those in use today.

No more valor?  You may have heard about Rev. Franklin Graham recently being  "disinvited" from speaking at a service at the Pentagon to commemorate the National Day of Prayer on May 6th. His offense? He called Islam a "very wicked and evil religion." Naturally, militant Islamicists such as CAIR are up in arms (figuratively only...so far), and they've brought enough heat on Graham's utterance to cause the Army to cancel Graham's invitation. It shouln't go unnoticed that the military serves at the order of the Commander-in-Chief.  In what appears to be nothing more than an attempt to play both sides, CiC Obama went to the Graham home on Sunday and spoke with Franklin and his 91-year-old father, Billy. Like a dutiful president, Obama pledged to "look into it."  Keep in mind that "looking" isn't the same as "doing."

OK; we have radical Muslims around the world and in our own country attacking us verbally, politically and violently.  Those within our borders enjoy the protection of our legal system, with (former) combatants and terrorists living the fat and lazy life in our prisons as they proselytize and recruit the lame-brained and disaffected among us.  Our valiant CiC treks around the world apologizing for America while conveniently leaving out all the things those countries should be thanking us for.  Meanwhile, a Christian minister is dissed because he dares to imply that his religion is superior to another one...one that urges its followers to blow themselves up to get virgins in the afterlife, that treats its own women as slaves, that shows no mercy, and that pledges to enslave, torture and kill anyone who will not submit to it.  Have I got that all straight?

Honestly, what kind of preacher would Rev. Graham be if he didn't believe his faith was superior to all others, and have the courage to speak it plainly? Better yet; when was the last time you heard a Muslim cleric claim that Christianity was as valid as Islam? Yeah; thought so.


  1. You really hit the nail on the head with a lot of this. Beck may have been the only mainstream source. As you mentioned, there was a New American article on Thursday and the John Birch Society also sent out a call to action on Wednesday.

    Part of the reason you might not have heard from groups like the JBS or seen articles from non-mainstream sources such as the New American might literally have to do with funding. Resources are limited in the world of real volunteer activism and while many more people are being snapped awake by the cacophonous alarm clock of what's going on around us, the crumbling economy and plight of free enterprise is a serious barrier. On that note, what sets us apart from these leftist groups? Is America really "changing” as media keeps suggesting? Many left-wing activists have certainly been wisped into this line of thought by years of propaganda but again, a big part of it is probably funding. A lot of these groups, which you accurately labeled "front groups", have the support of big foundations and are also being propped up by the same process that's squeezing our resources. Many of them such as La Raza, a group connected to the Reconquista movement and whose name literally means “The Race”, are receiving federal tax dollars! Such redistribution of wealth is not only offensive; it is a blatant violation of our Constitution!

    You’re right that there is a war being waged against the American republic and our personal, economic, and religious freedom. It is as much leftist as it is globalist.

    For the honest Marxist, if that isn't an oxymoron to the readers here, this is simply a part of the plan. Marxists see the "struggle of the worker" as transcending national boundaries. They also see their philosophy as bigger and more sophisticated than the individual or individuality, and also more advanced than God or religion. Equalizing the "haves and have-nots" globally is an important step towards establishing a communist utopia. (On this point, I've always wondered how so many Marxists can continue to "believe" in light of the horrible abuses that always occur under instances of communism. Perhaps the ones who actually know about them and aren't just deluding themselves make excuses a la "the ends justify the means" on the basis of their utopia only being fully realized once it goes global. However, most of the readers here probably know better that this is just a grotesque pipe dream. Well, we aren’t the only ones...)

    Consider the second group. These are the straight globalists. Some may hold to ideas from the "realist" school of political philosophy such as the Wilsonian mirage of achieving world peace through global governance. Some in the neoconservative movement see this as an issue of empire or think that our "just and fair" system would benefit those who would come under it under us, our “allies”, or perhaps the UN. However, most of the driving force in this camp is made up of oligarchs, plain and simple. They see themselves as above the rules and are seeking power and profit for the sake of power and profit. So, if you've ever wondered why the wealthy Establishment would ever encourage the seemingly counterproductive ideologies of Marxism or Progressivism, consider the corporatist realization on the top versus the idealistic push from the bottom thus far as well as this intersection on the point of globalism. Most of those starry-eyed young people are simply tools of this Establishment. If they ever found out what they were really fighting for (or that it was conservatives and Christians standing up to it), they'd probably lose their lunch. Unfortunately, they’ve been trained to resist and dismiss anything outside of their packaged revolution.

  2. Henry; Thanks for your gracious remarks. I've gone back and provided credit to JBS, I wasn't aware of their article at the time.

    One of the most difficult tasks we face is to convince those on the other side - especially the young high-schoolers and college crowds who, even as they trudge to class every day, are convinced that they already know everything worth knowing. It seems to be much easier to influence thinking in small dribs and drabs than it is to present it to them wholesale and in plain sight. In that, we have lost the advantage. The inexorable problem we face is that we cannot afford the luxury of giving up, while the enemy within gets full pay and benefits to poison impressionable minds.
