Not like the Spartan Women of Greek fame, With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A spraddled whore with a fat and fallen ass, whose fame Has almost guttered out, and her name “Mother of Suckers.”
From her limp-hand Glows world-wide “come and fuck me over;” her blind eyes command The slop strewn harbor that twin cities frame. “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she With silent Herpes lips.
“Give me your useless, your diseased, Your shit-stained masses yearning for a free ride, The lice bearing kiddies of your fucked over garbage countries.
Send these, the homeless, criminal, degenerate to use me, I bend way over inside the golden door!”

Ann Barnhardt Speaks Cold, Hard, Truth. The Kind We Should be Hearing from the Pulpit – But We Don’t.

1. Two hard boiled eggs, diced. A little mayo. A little sour cream (if you have it). Pinch of salt. Tablespoon of pickle relish. It’s the simple pleasures in life.
2. Paraphrasing a quote from Nicholas Cotoner, renowned as the father of the modern study of human anatomy: “It is essential to dissect the dead in order to heal the living.” Indeed. Pass the chainsaw, and lower your splash shields.
3. Yeah, it’s happening again. ZeroHedge has this up today. And I see that KD has picked it up, too. CYNK, a social media start-up (whatever that means) with one employee, no website, no revenue, no product, and no assets, is now booking a market cap of nearly FIVE BILLION DOLLARS. This is going to make the 2000 and 2008 crashes look like your sixth birthday party at McDonald’s.
4. So, yeah, in the interests of making sure everyone is arguing from TRUE premises and not FALSE premises, the whole Mexican border dissolution thing is 100% intentional and pre-planned. Saw it coming even before Obama officially usurped and the Republic was overthrown back in ’08. There are three main objectives achieved by this: 1.) Feed the Cloward-Piven overload and collapse of the FEDGOV by adding millions to the entitlement teat 2.) Expand the proletariat, which will agitate for and deliver more power to the oligarchy in return for empty promises of free shit 3.) Enable unfettered access to former-U.S. territory by musloids, with whom the Obama regime is saturated and explicitly allied with against Western Civilization. This is all exactly, precisely what they want and so therefore thinking that they are somehow embarrassed, ashamed or have any desire to “correct” or mitigate any of it is either dishonest to a gargantuan degree, or just flat stupid. You’re sitting around waiting for psychopathic arch-criminals who have taken over the largest economy and military in human history, and who are achieving absolutely every single one of their satanic goals with zero resistance, to slam on the brakes and voluntarily cease and desist because of an appeal to their conscience? Really? REALLY?
5. Yeah, I saw that bonehead Catholics are now working with the FEDGOV to traffic aliens into the country. Here’s what you have to understand. Most of the bishops today are stupid. I’m talking dumber than a bag of hair stupid. And, not surprisingly given that and given the Communist infiltration of the Church in the 20th century, most of them have Marxist leanings – even the so-called conservatives like Chaput in Philadelphia. Chaput agitated HARD for ObamaCare, even going so far as to force every parish in Denver to read a letter from him in which he declared healthcare a RIGHT. Rights come from God. Physical and service commodities are not rights, unless you subscribe to a materialist, Marxist worldview. But Ann, but Ann, I read Chaput’s book, “Render Unto Caesar”, and it wasn’t Marxist. Of course not. That’s because Chaput’s ghostwriter isn’t Marxist. She’s a very good Catholic lady, who delivered a fine book indeed to the Archbishop.
6. Oh, and yes, the “dumb” and “Marxist” labels apply fully to the Bishop of Rome, and Vicar of Christ, too. Francis is a Peronist-Fascist who is quite a dim bulb who has been built up from nothing by a fawning Marxist media – not at all unlike Obama. Listening to Progressive-Conservative (ProgCon) Catholics try to explain away the “Communists stole our (Christianity’s) flag” quote from last week is simultaneously amusing and nauseating. Communism, which reduces human beings to economic object/units, which it then slaughters by the millions, is just Christianity under a different “flag”, huh? I cannot put into words what an abomination and desecration of the memories of the millions of martyrs to Communism that statement is. The Communists who tortured Cardinal Mindszenty were not “closet Christians”. The torturers of the Romanian and Vietnamese Catholics were not “closet Christians”. Believe me, when I call Pope Francis stupid, it is from the bowels of charity, because the alternative is that he is malevolent, and for full disclosure, I bought an at-the-money call option on “malevolent” within minutes of his election.
7. Remember, Our Lord is angry with us. Very, very, very angry. And so, it is time for this again:
“The most evident mark of God’s anger, and the most terrible castigation He can inflict upon the world, is manifest when He permits His people to fall into the hands of a clergy who are more in name than in deed, priests who practice the cruelty of ravening wolves rather than the charity and affection of devoted shepherds. They abandon the things of God to devote themselves to the things of the world and, in their saintly calling of holiness, they spend their time in profane and worldly pursuits. When God permits such things, it is a very positive proof that He is thoroughly angry with His people and is visiting His most dreadful wrath upon them.” –St. John Eudes

I’ve been sent this story a few times by friends who know my thoughts on gluten intolerance. I never thought it was real. Food allergies are real, but rare. When all of sudden half the population suddenly becomes allergic to bread, you should know it is hysterical bullshit. I know exactly one person with celiac disease. I know dozens of people claiming to be gluten intolerant. The fact that all of these people were eating bread with no problem until this fad came along is what the empirically minded call a clue.
That’s according to an academic study that effectively overturned the results of a previous one in 2011, which had served as evidence that non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) is a real condition, Real Clear Science reports.
Peter Gibson, a gastroenterology professor at Monash University in Australia, conducted the original study, but was not satisfied with its results.
So he and a group of researchers carried out a new one, giving 37 people with a declared gluten sensitivity and irritable bowel syndrome four separate diets. Participants were first fed a baseline diet that was low in FODMAPs (fermentable, poorly absorbed short-chain carbohydrates) for two weeks.
The subjects then were blindly assigned one of three diets for a week: a high-gluten diet, which had 16 grams per day of added gluten; a low-gluten diet, which had two grams of gluten and 14 grams of whey protein per day; and a control diet, which had 16 grams of whey protein isolate per day, according to the study.
Subjects reported worsening gastrointestinal symptoms no matter which diet they consumed. Data from the study suggested a “nocebo” effect, similar to when people feel symptoms from Wi-Fi and wind turbines, Real Clear Science reported.
It should also be noted subjects reported feeling fewer gastrointestinal symptoms after eating the baseline diet, low-FODMAP diet, which includes many foods from which people abstain when taking on a gluten-free diet, such as breads, beer and pasta.
This reminds me of the peanut allergy hoax popular last decade. All of a sudden. 20% of the nation’s youth was allergic to nuts. Basic science said this could not be true, but parents convinced themselves their little snowflake was allergic. Then the kids got to the age where they could pick their own food and magically they were no longer allergic. I knew a woman who swore her kid was allergic until one day he came home munching a peanut candy of some sort. He did not die and she realized the nut problem was between her ears.
Of course, all of this is an off-shoot of the victim culture. Everyone is looking for a clever way to prove they are up against it. The greatest displays of public piety are those that involve the suffering of the pious. Instead of nailing themselves to the cross, bourgeois bohemian mothers pretend their otherwise mediocre offspring have an exotic disorder. That’s run its course, so now, in middle age, those same moms claim cupcakes give them the runs.

. The vast majority of 50,000 unaccompanied youths and children who have illegally crossed the Texas border during the last few months have been successfully delivered by federal agencies to their relatives living in the United States, according to a New York Times article.
A second New York Times article report revealed that officials have caught an additional 240,000 Central American migrants since April, and are transporting many of them to their destinations throughout the United States.
The 290,000 illegals – so far – are exploiting legal loopholes that allow them to get temporary permits to stay in the United States.
Experts say that President Barack Obama’s administration has failed to close the loopholes and is unlikely to deport more than a small percentage of the illegals, despite the high unemployment rates among American Latino, African-American and white youths, and the strapped budgets of many cities and towns.
The president’s policy has caused protests by frightened citizens in towns such as Murrieta. But Obama’s allies – such as La Raza, an ethnic lobby for Latinos – are eager to escalate the conflict and to paint the protestors as racists. Those protests may escalate before the November elections.
The Central American parents of the 50,000 youths and children are using a 2008 law to ensure their children are transported to them for free by a relay of border patrol and Department of Health and Human Services officials. The youths are delivered to the border patrol by smugglers, dubbed coyotes, in exchange for several thousand dollars.
Half of the 50,000 Central American youths were delivered by taxpayer-funded employees directly to their parents now living in the United States, and another third were delivered to people who said they were close relatives, said the July 3 article.
That new data was included in the 19th paragraph of a 20-paragraph July 3 article.
Top immigration officials choose to not check if the relatives or parents who pick up the children are in the country legally.
Both New York Times articles described the border-crossing illegal aliens as “immigrants.” In fact, “immigrants” is the term for people who legally migrate into the United States.
The 240,000 strong-group largely consists of many mothers and young children, most of whom are now being flown and bussed to destinations near where they wish to settle. That new 240,000 number was included in the seventh paragraph of a 24-paragraph article.
Few of the illegal immigrants are high-school graduates, or have skills that would allow them to earn more than they cost to federal, state and local taxpayers.
Officials have not said where they’ve delivered the adults or youth illegals, but pro-American activists are keeping track of some locations, including San Diego, Calif.
Officials have defended the administration’s catch-and-release policy, which critics say is inviting more Central Americans to cross the border in the hope of being arrested by the border patrol.
“When you have a noncriminal [border-crossing ] mother, they are going to be released,” David Jennings, the head of the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency in southern California. “The most humane way to deal with this is to find out where they are going and get them there,” he said at a town meeting held in Murrieta, Calif., according to the New York Times.

Kerry: ‘I’m Working Hard to … Have Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Ambassadors’
Wonderful. America is going to be represented abroad by a freak show.
The country is going to hell, sissified neocon Tamerlanes in panties bankrupt us with brainless wars they don´t understand, the schools make us an international joke, but the Secretary of State rushes to fill the consulates with sexual abnormalities. Washington begins to make a Weimar bordello look like Mormon Sunday school. I picture myself showing up at some embassy for an interview and being told, “The ambassador will be with you in a moment. Just now, he’s fucking a sheep.”

As George Orwell observed,
“He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future.”
Even as progressives consolidate their control of the present, they are using it to remake the past to support the future they intend to inflict. This means obliterating the cultural heritage of the American West, which consists mainly of qualities such as rugged individualism that liberals cannot abide and intend to eradicate.
The glorious chapter in our past that provided so much inspiration for Hollywood during its glory days forms a key component of America’s identity. Therefore, historical figures associated with the Old West must be demonized so as to justify reducing them to unpersons and stuffing them down the memory hole. For future generations, it will be as if they had never existed.
In the current political climate, demonization is easy to accomplish. Simply accuse the person to be erased of holding attitudes toward certain racial groups that in today’s society would be considered politically incorrect. For example, the great Mark Twain, a writer of the West, has been subjected to this treatment; his works will eventually disappear from libraries for including the forbidden N-word.
Kit Carson was arguably the personification of the Old West. Taos, New Mexico has the high honor of having been his home. But…
…the name of Kit Carson, the famed scout, explorer, trapper, soldier and Indian agent, will no longer grace Taos’ centerpiece downtown park. The Town Council passed a resolution Tuesday night to change the name to Red Willow Park.
You can guess where this is going. Carson — who lived among Indians but who also fought them — is now regarded as having been insufficiently 21st century in his attitudes and allegiances. Sure enough:
“This is about trying to begin to reconcile the transgressions of the past,” council member Fritz Hahn said Wednesday.
The park, named Kit Carson Park as long as locals can remember, gets its new name from Taos itself. The town’s name is derived from the Tiwa word for red willow. Kit Carson, who died in 1868, is buried in the cemetery at the park.
The council voted 3-1 in favor of the change after a presentation from Linda Yardley, a Native American…
“She feels uncomfortable in the park, which is named after someone who egregiously hurt her people,” said Hahn. “We have got to heal the wreckage of the past, and Kit Carson is part of that.”
By “the wreckage of the past,” he is referring to the establishment of American civilization in the Southwest.
Those of us who feel “uncomfortable” about having our history erased don’t have a voice in the matter. Moonbats call all of the shots these days.
Within a few generations, the only representatives of the 19th century anyone will remember will be the likes of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. Maybe Robert E. Lee will be kept around for the Two Minutes Hate.
For liberals, it isn’t enough to import millions of illegal aliens from the Third World to displace us. They feel compelled to eradicate the foundations of our culture, so that it will be as if real Americans had never existed.
Progressives intend for the Culture War to result in total extirpation. That it is why it is absolutely unthinkable that we would let them prevail.

The surreal nightmare unfolding in the Southwest as the undefended border is swept away by a tsunami of Central American children in a scene straight out of The Camp of the Saints did not happen without help. It was orchestrated by the radical left Alinskyite activists running the federal government:
“This is not a humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor illegal alien children at risk for purely political purposes,” said the statement released by the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers.
“Certainly, we are not gullible enough to believe that thousands of unaccompanied minor Central American children came to America without the encouragement, aid and assistance of the United States government,” the officers said.
“Anyone that has taken two six- to seven-year-old children to an amusement park can only imagine the problems associated with bringing thousands of unaccompanied children that age up through Mexico and into the United States.”
Presumably they are being brought up through Mexico from the squalid jungles of South America by their parents, who send them across the undefended border to turn themselves in, secure in the knowledge that they will be granted amnesty, and that the parents themselves can soon follow through chain migration.
Given the numbers involved, this is an invasion that would fully warrant a full-scale military response, because it poses as direct a threat to our country as 9/11 or Pearl Harbor. But respond against whom? You can’t bomb children or their illiterate peasant parents, if only because the anti-American media would have a field day. Far better to call in an air strike on the people responsible. But you can’t do that either, because they are running our government.
Republicans are blaming Obama’s immigration policies for enticing the illegals, particularly the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program launched in 2012, which recently was renewed.
More than 33,000 have been caught in Texas alone over the last eight months, the report said, overwhelming Border Patrol capabilities.
A federal judge even concluded the White House “has simply chosen not to enforce … border security laws.”
FoxNews.com reported this week Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer calls the situation a “creation” of the federal government, and Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., assigned blame for the “calamity” to Obama.
Fox News reported it had obtained a memo from an official with Customs and Border Protection who said the current policies are serving as an incentive for illegal aliens to sneak into the U.S.
Naturally the Obama Regime is responding to the crisis it created by using our money to support the invaders:
Recently, the federal government said it was hunting for lawyers to provide legal help to children who are in the U.S. illegally.
The White House is asking for $1.4 billion more for the illegal-alien children, which by some estimates will grow to 150,000 next year.
This is national betrayal on an even grander scale than Obama’s release of Gitmo terrorists. We survived the last 9/11 and we will survive the next one, but we will not survive being displaced by hordes of unassimilable Third World peasants drawn by the lure of extravagant welfare benefits.
The officers argue that the non-enforcement of immigration laws is “the next step in becoming a failed state.”
America’s failure is Obama’s success. That’s why his chief teleprompter programmer Valerie Jarrett has found the time recently to meet repeatedly with an illegal alien activist group.
Already 75% of Hispanics voted for Obama, and 75% support Big Government at the expense of individual liberty. For the type primarily imported now — unskilled peasants often from Central American jungles, many of whom don’t even speak Spanish much less English — the percentages will be even higher. That’s what this is all about.
Saul Alinsky, a major influence on Obama and presumably Jarrett too, would call this community activism on an international scale. Someone who meant America well would call it treason.
The purpose of military bases is to protect America’s security — which ultimately means its borders. These bases have become swamped with the conquering army of peasant children. In essence, the enemy’s flag flies over the bases. We have quite literally been invaded by a hostile foreign army with the help of our quisling government.
It is an army of children because that excuses not resisting, but in the end it won’t matter if they wore helmets or sneakers — only that they took our country away.
Joke Biden is relatively up front about the objective of Obama’s immigration policy:
Biden told a National Association of Manufacturers’ crowd this week that what the United States needed was more, not fewer, immigrants.
Specifically, he called for a “constant, unrelenting stream” of new immigrants — “not dribbling [but] significant flows,” to bolster the national economy, The Hill reported.
Meanwhile, federal authorities have predicted that the number of children illegally crossing the border without parents this year will hit at 90,000 — up from an average 6,500 over years past.
Also meanwhile, the labor participation rate is collapsing. Not even Biden could be enough of an idiot to think being invaded, colonized, and displaced by illiterate, unskilled Third Worlders will benefit America, economically or otherwise.
We let our enemies take over the media and then through it our government. As an inevitable result, our country is now dying.

Editors Note: T.L. Davis, an excellent writer, and American Patriot, wrote both of the following posts. I put them here, in entirety, because they should be read by every fellow patriot in this country. Once every decent, constitutional believing, God-fearing American is designated as a terrorist, which is being done by OUR government of these United States – Then we are ALL in this together and you and I have to make a decision just as T.L.

Miller Dilemma - Post One
Jared and Amanda Miller finally gave the feds the excuse they were looking for to put all of us “domestic terrorists” on notice. It was bound to happen wasn’t it? And now the post I made only yesterday asks the question of today. Do we have the ability, as a movement, to stomach the sort of thing the Millers did and still stand by our previous statements? Who knows if they were white supremacists, how can anyone know for sure? They draped the cops body with a Swastika, does that say something about them, or the cops? Who are the Nazis in this scenario?
See, how do we, as a community, deal with this act? We know who the cops are; what they are willing to do to innocent citizens. I don’t agree with white supremacy. I don’t agree with racism. I don’t agree with flash-banging a baby in his crib either.
At the Bundy Ranch the feds were willing to unleash snipers. On who? Grass poachers? The Millers are not innocent, possibly racists, perhaps that is what got them kicked out of Bundy’s Ranch and rightly so in my book, but like them or not, we just got associated with them and as far as the cops are concerned they are free to kill our families; our babies, to justify their bloodthirsty desire for retribution.
I know the tendency is to back away from the Millers, to let them swing alone, but their rage was not created out of racism, or anti-government conspiracy theories. It was created out of armored cars and militarized police departments encouraging the type of tactics that make the deaths of innocents almost guaranteed. We have all seen the hundreds of cases a year of extreme police brutality and hardly ever a legal case brought against those guilty of what can only be described as executions.
If anything pushed the Millers to do what they did it wasn’t the “patriot community” (as several news stories claim, using that particular term that I have probably used a few thousand times and never heard it used in a news story before). What does that tell you? Anyone who identifies themselves with that term is now a target of retribution. They were also connected somehow to the militia and I doubt seriously if they had ever had contact with the militia outside of Bundy Ranch.
I know this will not be a popular post. I know there are several police officers and deputies who read this blog, so let me be very clear here. It is not a question of whether I support the Millers for their act any more than it is a question of whether they support the deputies who flash-banged a toddler in his crib in Georgia.
There is also a distinction to be made. Yes, cops risk their lives and many, many times in arresting true criminals, murderers, thieves, gang members and rapists. That conscious decision to engage these criminals takes courage and they deserve our respect, but they chose that occupation; they knew the risks and assumed them. In this case a couple of officers were killed with, as far as I know, no connection to the Bundy Ranch, or other acts of overt, criminal oppression, but they tolerated in their midst bad cops and probably said nothing, perhaps laughed at their antics of cruelty.
A child in a crib did none of these things and suffered the same fate (even though the child in GA did not die). It was sleeping in a crib for heaven’s sake and got flash-banged by eager, arrogant, careless and ruthless men with badges. I know the life of a baby means nothing to the media, they report on them every day, they encourage abortion and see nothing valuable in the state of innocence of a child, but I do.
That distinction is critical to understanding the difference between the causes of one death and the senseless death of another. It is the difference between understanding that one makes themselves a target by their complicity to corruption and brutality and not understanding what a baby in a crib could possibly be complicit in.
The feds have put me in association with the Millers, because they want me there. It gives them a reason to kill me and my family without regret, remorse or anything, except a high five. If that is you, if you recognize yourself in these words, you do not deserve my respect and I will not feel sadness at your passing.
You cannot continue to take citizen’s lives so lightly and expect them to cherish yours. The police department is supposed to be a cooperation between citizens and those expected to enforce the laws the people have designed to order a civil society. When the police turn their power against the people they cannot expect and do not deserve the support of the people. If that manifests itself in acts as committed by the Millers, only the police have the ability to reverse the trend.
Perhaps you have enough cover on the force that they would never come after you, but they will come after people like me, who will not blanch in the face of pressure. My beliefs in God and the Constitution are solid, that will never change and if those things make me a target, well I will have to deal with it, but you are looking at yourself as an individual suddenly targeted by psychotics and feel uncomfortable. Trust me, it is a much different feeling when you see some of those psychotics driving around in police cruisers, with the weapons, law and society on theirs side. Not all, surely, but enough. Did you know that a police officer is 137 times more likely to be guilty of misconduct severe enough to warrant a news story than of being killed in the line of duty? That is one in five. Now, what are my chances of encountering a cop who is willing to commit misconduct severe enough to warrant a news story? 1 in 5. I think I have a lot more to worry about than you. I mean, in my line of work, I put my life on the line every day as well. I can’t even begin to count the close calls, not of mere disfigurement, but death. I accept that and I assume you have as well.
Of course there are no absolutes, but I don’t know which one will turn their eye on me on behalf of a police department owning many thousands of gifts to the current administration in the form of military-style vehicles and weapons including snipers and night vision goggles.
No, I am not cowering inside my home for having written the previous post, I wouldn’t give them the satisfaction, but it is nearing the time when you will have to decide whether you are on your employer’s side, or the side of liberty.
I risk a lot writing this blog, but I consider it a duty to express the frustration and outright illegality going on as commonplace in the world of government. I have suffered the wrath of the government already in my journey of patriotism, so I am not confused as to whether I have been targeted or not. I don’t care, because my right to free speech is as dear as the right to bear arms. Put me in jail if you must, kill me if you think it will get you a promotion, but do not mistake your role in the affair.
Don’t take my word for it, the bad cops are running loose in society with guns and badges we gave them, go here. It is, at best, an epidemic. There were seven convictions in May alone and we have to figure in that these were just the ones to get caught, run through the process and eventually convicted. How many get away? How many criminals get away rather than convicted? How much harder is it to get a conviction against a cop?
Having said that, the police officers and deputies that frequent this blog are like all who consider themselves defenders of personal rights, good, decent, hard-working people. I don’t mean to besmirch them all, but the odds are not good. These are truths that must be faced in order to begin a restoration of the proper order of things. It will take a critical look at the facts and make some judgments and maybe take action against it.
At some point the good cops have to take some responsibility. Yes, the link above shows that the system can work, but my point is the system must work or it breeds people like the Millers. I daresay that it is breeding them much faster than is imagined. An escalation of force can do nothing other than make martyrs and breed resistance. It is hard for cops to recognize that while they might have all of the armor, the tanks, the SWAT teams it wants, a few motivated people who feel the injustice of the system can do unprecedented damage to society as a whole.
My advice is to back off, reassess the trajectory of militarization of your forces and the message it sends to everyone who values their rights. If you light enough fuses a few bombs are liable to go off.
Please forgive me: Maya Angelou died recently and I didn’t even mention it. I didn’t realize that according to the highly revered (if only by liberals) Bill Clinton, she spoke with the voice of God:
“God loaned her His voice. She had the voice of God. And He decided He wanted it back for a while,” Clinton said at the memorial service, held this past Saturday at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where Angelou taught as the Reynolds Professor of American Studies since 1982.
To honor the former Speaker With the Voice of God, let’s have a little poetry:
Dancin’ the funky chicken Eatin’ ribs and tips Diggin’ all the latest sounds And drinkin’ gin in sips.
Puttin’ down that do-rag Tighten’ up my ‘fro Wrappin’ up in Blackness Don’t I shine and glow?
Hearin’ Stevie Wonder Cookin’ beans and rice Goin’ to the opera Checkin’ out Leontyne Price.
Get down, Jesse Jackson Dance on, Alvin Ailey Talk, Miss Barbara Jordan Groove, Miss Pearlie Bailey.
Now ain’t they bad? An ain’t they Black? An ain’t they Black? An’ ain’t they Bad? An ain’t they bad? An’ ain’t they Black? An’ ain’t they fine?
If I had written that myself in a drunken stupor as a joke, it would be regarded as racism at its most vicious. But that really was written by Maya Angelou. The poem is aptly entitled “Ain’t That Bad?” It’s bad, all right.
Pretending that a child’s finger-paintings belong in the Louvre next to Rembrandt isn’t helping anyone. It would be far more constructive to encourage black writers with literary talent than to hype race-obsessed moonbats like Maya Angelou, who play into the stereotypes fondly treasured by condescending liberals.

Michael Goodwin compares Hopey Changey America to a business going under:
If you think of the United States of America as a store, its recent decisions and scandals resemble a sale, perhaps a fire sale. Or maybe even a “Going Out of Business” sale.
The list of dramatic markdowns is breathtaking. They include trading away five murderous terrorists for a likely Army deserter, an open invitation to tens of thousands of illegal immigrants to cross the Mexican border, and a decision to recognize the terrorist group Hamas as part of the Palestinian government.
On the home front, environmental regulations will cost thousands of coal miners their jobs and drive up the cost of electricity for millions. The ObamaCare mess is hardly resolved, and the Veterans Affairs scandal keeps getting worse. The acting agency head reported the deaths of 18 more vets who were kept off the official waiting list in Phoenix.
Ticking quietly in the background is the mother of all threats — an Iranian nuclear bomb. That ticking grew louder last week as the ayatollah mocked our nation by standing in front of a banner that proclaimed, “America cannot do a damn thing.”
Technically, he’s wrong. It’s not that we cannot stop the mad mullahs’ march. It’s that President Obama has taken the military option off the table, and without it, Iran has nothing to fear. Our impotence was a choice.
That’s the horror. Sure there was voter fraud, and Obama might not have been reelected without it. But tens of millions of people who call themselves Americans actually voted for this character. It won’t be easy to outlive the shame.
Add to the combustible mix the expansionist moods in Russia and China, and the series of events recalls an observation by the late economist Herb Stein. Speaking in another context, he said that, “If something can’t go on forever, it won’t.”
That certainly applies to America ruled by Obama. Either we regain control of our country, or Obama wins, and it is “fundamentally transformed” — that is to say, destroyed. Either way, the status quo won’t last for long.

CLEVELAND: ‘Biggies’ Gas Station & Convenience Store decorated with virulently anti-semitic murals by its Palestinian Muslim owner

Amongst other religious and political commentary, is one image that’s so disturbing, so grotesque, we have to blur it out in order to post it or use it on TV. The picture shows a priest engaged in a sexual act with a baby. There’s writing on top that says, “Talmudic priests in Church. Sex with minors permitted.” It’s an image that Biggie’s owner Abe Auiad told us – flat out – he stands behind.
The owner is trying to say that this is actually an image of a priest doing a circumcision on a baby. The problem is that the wording up above says, “sex with minors permitted.”
The owner of Biggie’s, Brahim “Abe” Ayad, a forty-something Palestinian Muslim who lives in North Olmsted, once explained to Douglas Guth of the Cleveland Jewish News that the murals represent his “protest against ‘evil-doing Zionists’ who, among other offenses, he claims, took away his Palestinian father’s land to make way for the state of Israel.”
Ayad further explained that “[t]he shocking imagery on his walls are his way ‘of fighting fire with fire,’ and that ‘[i]f they want to insult me, they should know how it feels to be insulted.’”
“I have a problem with the editing, so any interview I give, I will give live,” adds Ayad. Ayad says he, himself is disturbed by the image, ” Yes, I am – actually, I am very – but that is all I have to say.”
One other disturbing element about this mural is that the gas station sits right across the street from the George Washington Carver School for grades K-8 and their playground. The image is on the side that is in plain sight of students.
The stomach-turning image is there for everyone to see. 19 Action News viewers called into our station complaining. People living in the neighborhood like Prentice Edwards are shocked when they notice the mural. Afterwards, he continued walking along the sidewalk, but insisting on staring straight ahead so he wouldn’t catch even a glance.
“I know that people don’t want to see that or even hear about anything like that. Other than that, all I can say is that is sad, and it doesn’t make sense,” says Edwards.
Cleveland Police are investigating. Previous complaints about the murals have gone nowhere.

“Trading Private Bergdahl” (2014)
This story, probably more than any other story of obama’s presidency, is one that makes him look bad. It seems to simultaneously expose his disregard for the safety of America and Americans, his sympathy for fundamentalist Islamist governments, his failure to do his homework, his drive towards greater executive power, his disregard for Congress (including some members of both parties) and the law itself, his mendacity, and the stupidity and collaboration of his advisors in all of the above.

I had an epiphany this morning, on why the Left does what it does. All leftist activity is devoted to installing a Marxist government in the United States. In order to do that, they must replace capitalist-loving, patriotic Americans with others more amenable to their plans.
How the left plans to replace America:
1. Open the borders to a tidal wave of Third World immigrants who do not share American values, traditions, cultures or beliefs. Most of these folks are less educated and do not understand nor care about politics, economics, or constitutional government. These immigrants vote overwhelmingly for the Democrat Party. They will vote for anyone promising free stuff, and willingly trade long term prosperity and stability for short term advantages. In short, they are more manageable and trainable to support leftist goals. They also have more children, thus growing their numbers over time.
Millions of non-voting illegal immigrants are now among us, and may provide the tipping point for making the leftist Democrats a permanent majority party. Recent calls, even by so-called Republicans, to grant these immigrants amnesty and make citizens of them, will achieve this.
2. Marginalize white people and reduce their numbers. Recent voting patterns prove that white people, especially white men, are the ethnicity most resistant to the goals of the Neo-Marxists, i.e. replacement of capitalism with socialism, massive wealth redistribution, and social regimentation. Not surprisingly, white men are the single most hated group by left wingers, and this is why whites are being targeted on college campuses. Whites must be replaced, and marginalized while they are being replaced, with feelings of shame and guilt over imaginary wrongs. Not surprisingly, whites are not replacing themselves through birthrates, and the white demographic is self-destructing. It is only a matter of time before whites are effectively replaced, taking their culture, nation and traditions with them.
The above two factors constitute population replacement. Before the left can replace America with something else, they must replace those who made it, believe in it, and maintain it.
What we on the right are missing are (1) a correct definition and description of the problem, and (2) effective strategies for reversing the above two trends.
You cannot escape, you will be absorbed!
“weary of multicultural stock photos? well too damn bad!
the cover of every kid’s textbook, every magazine advertisement, every college brochure, every TV commercial, every government pamphlet, urgently, frantically, demands — DEMANDS! — more more more interracial joy. to pass a TV or a newsstand these days is to clinch & grimace. this pathetically desperate Big Brother “lean across the finish line” insistence on the happy human family (of satisfied corporate consumers and forward-looking progressive voters). yet no amount of multicult propaganda (or homosexual propaganda) will make it “normal”, it will always be painfully fake and never real.”

Harry Reid and His Commie Friends are Evil and Enemies of our Great Nation. They are the Terrorists Within.
From mm: http://maddmedic.wordpress.com/
“A Russian fighter repeatedly buzzed a US warship in the Black Sea.”
— would once have prevented the Russians from trying this stunt. But it’s gone. And going to battle stations each time plane shows up is ruinously expensive. When the IRS shuts down Republican companies or when Harry Reid uses his political position to drive a rancher off his land the damage goes beyond the individual aggrieved party. It goes to the legitimacy of the system. Of all the values the “we are the ones we’ve been waiting for” cohort have squandered, nothing has been more ill-spent than trust.Belmont Club » The Book of Numbers

Maureen A. Craig and Jennifer A. Richeson
In all the Main Stream Media propaganda about the desperate need for an Amnesty/Immigration Surge bill, you never hear that the bill will speed up the day when whites are a minority. The research of Northwestern University psychologists Maureen A. Craig [Email her] (a white woman) and Jennifer A. Richeson [Email her](an African-American) shows why [On the Precipice of a “Majority-Minority” America: Perceived Status Threat From the Racial Demographic Shift Affects White Americans’ Political Ideology, Psychological Science April 3, 2014]. Shockingly, it turns out that the great majority of white Americans are not at all like neocon Ben Wattenberg who famously asserted that “The non-Europeanization of America is heartening news of an almost transcendental quality.” [The Good News Is The Bad News Is Wrong, p. 84.] In fact, white Americans are afraid of becoming a minority. Being told about their impending minority status provokes whites to endorse attitudes linked to the political Right.
The title of the Craig-Richeson paper is itself interesting. The standard dictionary definitionof “precipice” is “the brink of a dangerous or disastrous situation”—which is exactly what Cassandras have been saying about the impending minority status of whites. Giving up majority status in a democracy has obvious grave implications. No ethnic group in history has ever voluntarily become a minority. Israel, for example, is fixated on Palestinian birthrates and absolutely opposed to a “Right of Return” for dispossessed Palestinians. Given that Palestinians are already a majority in the “de facto state of Israel,” a one-state solution would mean that, if Israel remained a democracy, the Palestinians would govern. And that would mean the end of Israel as a Jewish state.
Being a minority is always problematic given the reality of ethnic conflict throughout history. This is particularly so when groups harbor historical grudges (e.g., slavery and Jim Crow for African Americans, anti-Semitism for Jews). It is especially worrisome in the case of America because the grievance industry promoted by elites in the MSM, the legal profession, and academe systematically blames “White racism” for all the problems of non-Whites.
Needless to say, despite Craig-Richeson’s use of the word “precipice”, they do not view whites’ impending minority status as problematic. Indeed, they are eager suggest ways to make Whites complacent about their impending status.
The theoretical framework for the Craig-Richeson paper emphasizes the general finding that people who feel threatened tend to adopt more conservative views. Studies show that whites adopt more conservative political views not only after terrorist events like 9/11, but also when they live closer to black Americans:
[A]n analysis of voter-registration data for Louisiana parishes revealed that the larger the percentage of Blacks in a parish, the greater the percentage of Whites who were registered as Republicans and the lower the percentage of Whites who were registered as Democrats.
But it’s still very easy for most Whites to avoid the costs of diversity and multiculturalism—”out of sight, out of mind.” The Craig-Richeson study reinforces this observation.
In their first experiment, subjects (all experiments used only whites) were told that California had become a “majority minority” state, while control subjects were told that there were now approximately as many Hispanics as blacks in the US. The experimental subjects reported they leaned more toward the Republican Party and toward more conservative opinions, and this effect was increased among subjects who lived closer to California.

Cleveland Indian fans should be saddened to learn that the beloved Chief Wahoo is on his way out, having been designated as politically incorrect by liberals who revel in their ability to ban anything they please on any foolish pretext. In cowardly response to moonbat tantrums, the cheerful cartoon Indian is getting replaced by a boring block C as the team’s primary logo.
Chief Wahoo isn’t going away. At least not yet. He’ll still have a home on the Indians’ jersey sleeves.
But the Chief is well on his way to the reservation. From there he will vanish entirely, rendering our culture just a little more drab, and a little more monochromatically politically correct.
For now Chief Wahoo is still on the home caps too…
In that sense, the impact of the logo redesignations would be more symbolic than practical.
But symbolism matters, especially when discussing Chief Wahoo…
[T]he logo redesignations would have ripple effects because media outlets — including “SportsCenter” and newspapers — would start using the block-C, instead of Wahoo, as their visual shorthand for the team.
Wahoo set off on his Trail of Tears a few years ago:
The franchise removed Wahoo from its road cap in 2011 and from its home batting helmet in 2013. At last summer’s All-Star Game FanFest — a merch-fest where teams generally slap all their logos on every product imaginable — Wahoo was nowhere to be found. Go to the Indians’ website and you’ll find the block-C near the top of the home page with Wahoo less prominently used. Several reporters have noted that the block-C has a much larger presence than Wahoo at the team’s spring training facility too.
The priggish liberals at ESPN unsurprisingly want the Chief banned immediately on the grounds that “ethnic caricatures such as Wahoo are harder and harder to defend in a modern, diverse society.” Next they will demand the team change its name.
Why should anyone care what logo is on the hat of a dying city’s baseball team? Because every time the totalitarian Left takes an inch, they move on to take the next inch. No matter how absurd the battles are, if normal Americans keep losing them, we will wake up one day soon to find our culture no longer exists.

Perhaps the choice is not between Democrat and Republican in the long run
– but between individual liberty or subordination to rank hypocrisy.
If history is any guide many, perhaps even the majority, will choose welfare over freedom. Give me bread and call me stupid, but only give me bread. Lord Bevin boasted upon creating the welfare state “I stuffed their mouths with gold.” People today are not so demanding. They’ll be happy with chump change. - – Belmont Club » Yee Gads
