Obama Wants Abortions At Any Cost

December 2, 2012

We’re All Abortionists Now!

An awesome piece, from Ellis Washington at WND, “UNDER OBAMACARE, WE’RE ALL ABORTIONISTS NOW!“:

Regarding the approval of the Obamacare individual mandate by the Supreme Court June 28, in a Volokh Conspiracy blog entry by Nick Rosenkranz, “Constitutional Law after Obamacare,” there was an insightful comment by a reader named “Wolfwalker” who wrote: “[M]ost of the legal community is a bunch of fascists who have lost all respect for the Constitution much like the federal government itself. Mr. Rosenkranz, I can write your speech in two sentences: The decision upholding Obamacare is the worst decision issued by any Supreme Court since Dred Scott v. Sanford. It renders all constitutional limits on federal powers completely meaningless.”

Wolfwalker’s comment on Mr. Rosenkranz’s blog is the most astute and succinct synopsis I’ve yet read on Obamacare, both from a constitutional and historical perspective.

Indeed, Obamacare renders all constitutional limits on federal powers completely meaningless. “And there’s the rub,” as Shakespeare would say. Obamacare demonstrates to all America the tyrannical, fascist power President Obama and the Democratic Socialist Party is willing to wield like a cudgel to smash the God-given, unalienable rights of the people. By the Supreme Court unconstitutionally acquiescing to Obamacare, all Americans are shackled “under the despotism of an oligarchy,” as Jefferson wrote in an 1820 letter to William Jarvis.

For example, religious rebellion to the Obama administration’s abortion/contraception mandate have achieved new life after the U.S. Supreme Court ordered a federal appeals judge to review a challenge to the health-care law by Liberty, a Christian university.

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals previously dismissed Liberty University’s challenge to the law’s individual and employer insurance mandates, including the tyrannous mandate by the Department of Health and Human Services that employee health insurance cover contraceptives, abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization drugs and abortions. This prompted Liberty University’s appeal to the Supreme Court; however, the Court dismissed the appeal when it issued its controversial decision upholding Obamacare in June.

Liberty University’s case against Obamacare was given renewed vigor by the high court Monday (Nov. 26) when it granted the school a new hearing, ordering the 4th Circuit to reassess the case Liberty University v. Geithner in reply to a new appeal. Liberty filed after the June decision. Liberty Counsel, a nonprofit legal services organization representing the Virginia university, believes that these latest legal developments renews the religious challenge to Obamacare, probably sending the question to the Supreme Court for hearing during its 2013 term.

Mat Staver, Liberty Counsel founder, chairman and dean of Liberty University’s law school, said, “Today’s ruling breathes new life into our challenge to Obamacare. Our fight against Obamacare is far from over.

“Congress exceeded its power by forcing every employer to provide federally mandated insurance,” Staver continued. “But even more shocking is the abortion mandate, which collides with religious freedom and the rights of conscience.”

At least 35 Christian universities and businesses have filed suits challenging the health-care mandates, including Louisiana College, Houston Baptist University and East Texas Baptist University. The Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission joined the legal fight in October, signing a friend-of-the-court (amicus curiae) brief in support of a joint challenge by evangelical Wheaton College in suburban Chicago and the Roman Catholic Belmont Abbey College in North Carolina. The ERLC was among 11 evangelical groups signing the brief filed by the Christian Legal Society in support of the Wheaton and Belmont Abbey appeal. Others suing the federal government over Obamacare include Christian publisher Tyndale House, Priests for Life, Hobby Lobby and the EWTN Catholic television and radio network….

If Obamacare and its unconstitutional individual mandate becomes the law of the land, then President Obama and the Democratic Socialist Party would have succeeded in achieving his 100-plus-year progressive dream of perverting and deconstructing America’s republic; to in essence make all Americans slaves to a Marxist, socialist government. This atheistic, Leviathan state will then have de jure and de facto control over every birth, life and death decision for over 320 million people. However, most galling of all to me is that Obamacare has effectively made all Americans (including Jews, Christians and all religious people of faith) co-conspirators of the abortion industry’s machinery of death. Under Obamacare, we are all abortionists now!

Malaysia’s Ruling Party Says LGBT Community “Of The Devil”…

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s ruling party, at its national conference, continued to attack the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, much to the anger of human rights activists in the country.

The Umno, in ending its final assembly gathering ahead of elections that must take place before April next year, said that anti-Islamic elements threaten the country, singling out homosexuality and those who promote liberalism in “mainly Muslim Malaysia.”

One delegate called for a rehabilitation center for the LGBT community to “re-educate” them and bring them back to society.

“We want to transform them from zaman kejahilan (dark age of ignorance),” Tanjong representative Mohd Shaharudin Mohd Hasan Tajudin told the over 2,000 delegates at Umno’s cavernous Putra World Trade Center (PWTC).

Shaharudin also suggested that high school students be taught to reject the LGBT lifestyle — along with pluralism and liberalism — in their religious education.

Another delegate, Ariffin Mohd Arif from Kimanis, called for an official sanction against those who spread pluralism and liberalism, which he called a “teaching of the Devil.”

“Just like al-Arqam … we must take action against these people. Our actions must be strict, and we must not budge,” Ariffin said.

Report: Muslim Brotherhood “Paying Gangs To Rape Women And Beat Men” Protesting Against Morsi…

The real war on women.

Via Daily Mail:

Egypt’s ruling party is paying gangs of thugs to sexually assault women protesting in Cairo’s Tahrir Square against President Mohamed Morsi, activists said.

They also said the Muslim Brotherhood is paying gangs to beat up men who are taking part in the latest round of protests, which followed a decree by President Morsi to give himself sweeping new powers.

Around 200,000 people gathered yesterday in Tahrir Square, the heart of last year’s revolution which toppled President Hosni Mubarak.

Large marches from around Cairo flowed into the square, chanting ‘Constitution: Void!’ and The people want to bring down the regime.’

But amid the calls for democracy a sinister threat has emerged.

Magda Adly, the director of the Nadeem Centre for Human Rights, said that under Mubarak, the Government paid thugs to beat male protestors and sexually assault women.

‘This is still happening now,’ she told The Times. ‘I believe thugs are being paid money to do this … the Muslim Brotherhood have the same political approaches as Mubarak,’ she said.

One protestor, Yasmine, told the newspaper how she had been in the square filming the demonstrations for a few hours when the crowd suddenly turned.

Before she knew what was happening, about 50 men had surrounded her and began grabbing her breasts. She said they ripped off her clothes, starting with her headscarf and for nearly an hour, indecently assaulted her with their hands.

islam and mooslims Think Egypt’s New Constitution is Great. islamic Slavery for Everyone.

December 1, 2012

Islamist-Written Constitution That Allows Slavery, Criminalizes Blasphemy, Doesn’t Protect Christians…

I’m sure if Israel decided it was going to allow slavery the Obama administration would remain silent.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is declining to criticize Egypt’s draft constitution despite spirited internal debate over whether the document adequately protects women, religious minorities and dissenting voices.

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland lamented the lack of consensus in Egypt’s constitution-writing process. She says how people in Egypt view the draft is most important.

If Egypt’s President Mohammed Morsi approves the constitution, it goes to a national referendum.

Nuland’s restraint didn’t reflect the views of all in the administration.

U.S. officials said there were internal debates over whether to criticize the draft constitution for limiting freedom of expression, failing to grant freedom of worship, criminalizing blasphemy and eroding women’s rights guarantees.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly about internal deliberations.

Here are just a few of the articles and omissions that should have been a no-brainer to condemn.

CAIRO (AP) — An Islamist-dominated panel is voting on Egypt’s draft constitution, the country’s first charter after the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak. The draft largely reflects the conservative vision of the Islamists, with articles that rights activists, liberals and Christians fear will lead to restrictions on the rights of women and minorities and civil liberties in general.

Omissions of certain articles, such as bans on slavery or promises to adhere to international rights treaties, were equally worrying to critics of the new draft, who pulled out from the panel before the vote.

Here are some of the disputed articles:

- As in past constitutions, the new draft says that the “principles of Islamic law” will be the basis of law. Previously, the term “principles” allowed wide leeway in interpreting Shariah. But in the draft, a separate new article is added that seeks to define “principles” by pointing to particular theological doctrines and their rules. That could give Islamists the tool for insisting on stricter implementation of rulings of Shariah.

- A new article states that Egypt’s most respected Islamic institution, Al-Azhar, must be consulted on any matters related to Shariah, a measure critics fear will lead to oversight of legislation by clerics.

- An article underlines that the state will protect “the true nature of the Egyptian family … and promote its morals and values,” phrasing that is vague and suggests state control over the contents of such arts forms as books and films.

- The draft contains no article specifically establishing equality between men and women because of disputes over the phrasing. However, it maintains that a woman must balance her duties toward family and outside work, suggesting that she can be held accountable if her public role conflicts with her family duties. No such article is mentioned for men.

- An article bans insulting or defaming the prophet and messengers, but is vague about what constitutes an insult, raising concerns of restrictions to freedom of expression.

AP  The Almighty will have to defend his own name from now on: Dutch parliamenthas accepted a motion that will scrap a law making it a crime to insult God. A majority of parties said the European Union nation no longer needs the law, which hasn’t been invoked in the past half-century.

The movement to decriminalize blasphemy gathered strength in the last decade amid a national debate about the limits of freedom of speech. The climax came at the 2011 trial of far-right politician Geert Wilders, when judges ruled he had the right to criticize Islam, even if his opinions were insulting to many Muslims.

Some Things Are Worse Than Death…Getting There Can Be Hell

November 29, 2012

 

End of the Line in the ICU

By Kristen McConnell

Last year I graduated from nursing school and began working in a specialized intensive care unit in a large academic hospital. During an orientation class a nurse who has worked on the unit for six years gave a presentation on the various kinds of strokes. Noting the difference between supratentorial and infratentorial strokes—the former being more survivable and the latter having a more severe effect on the body’s basic functions such as breathing—she said that if she were going to have a stroke, she knew which type she would prefer: “I would want to have an infratentorial stroke. Because I don’t even want to make it to the hospital.”

She wasn’t kidding, and after a couple months of work, I understood why. I also understood the nurses who voice their advocacy of natural death—and their fear of ending up like some of our patients—in regular discussions of plans for DNRtattoos. For example: “I am going to tattoo DO NOT RESUSCITATE across my chest. No, across my face, because they won’t take my gown off. I am going to tattoo DO NOT INTUBATE above my lip.”

Another nurse says that instead of DNR, she’s going to be DNA, Do Not Admit.

We know that such plainly stated wishes would never be honored. Medical personnel are bound by legal documents and orders, and the DNR tattoo is mostly a very dark joke. But the oldest nurse on my unit has instructed her children never to call 911 for her, and readily discusses her suicide pact with her husband.

You will not find a group less in favor of automatically aggressive, invasive medical care than intensive care nurses, because we see the pointless suffering it often causes in patients and families. Intensive care is at best a temporary detour during which a patient’s instability is monitored, analyzed, and corrected, but it is at worst a high tech torture chamber, a taste of hell during a person’s last days on earth.

Obama Says He “Couldn’t Be Prouder” Of Susan Rice, Calls Her “Extraordinary”…

It’s almost like he’s rubbing it in our faces.

(Reuters) – President Barack Obama gave a show of moral support to his embattled ambassador to the United Nations on Wednesday, calling Susan Rice “extraordinary” and prompting applause from his Cabinet during a meeting at the White House.

Rice, who is considered a top candidate to replace Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has been meeting this week with senators on Capitol Hill who have been critical of her initial remarks about what prompted the September 11 attacks on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.

Several Republican senators, including former 2008 presidential candidate John McCain, have kept up their criticism of the ambassador after their visits.

Asked whether he thought Rice was being treated fairly in those meetings, Obama at first demurred.

“Susan Rice is extraordinary,” he then said, adding he “couldn’t be prouder of the job she’s done.”

The UK Has Truly Gone Mad

UK Dhimmitude, where a 16-year-old boy throwing ham at a mosque can be arrested for a ‘hate crime’

A 16-year-old boy was arrested by police investigating a hate crime after pieces of ham were thrown at a mosque. The teenager was held on suspicion of a religiously aggravated public order offence by officers called to Broadfield Mosque in Crawley, West Sussex.

London Evening Standard  Sussex Police said “real anguish and anxiety” was caused to worshippers who witnessed the incident as they left the mosque at around 4pm last Tuesday.

Eating pork and products made from it is strictly forbidden in Islam. The arrested teenager, who is from the local area, has been freed on police bail pending further inquiries.

Sergeant Jim Collen, of Sussex Police, said: “This was a very unpleasant incident which has naturally caused real anguish and anxiety amongst worshippers at the mosque. (Oh please, grow up)

“Sussex Police take all reports of hate crime extremely seriously and this investigation will be no exception.” (That’s right, ignore all the Muslim sex groomers of young white girls and focus on the ham throwers)

Disorder which broke out following the incident was also being investigated, police said. Mr Collen said: “We are aware of a relatively minor altercation that we hope to resolve using our restorative justice programme. “It must not be allowed to take the focus away from our investigation of the hate crime as this remains our priority.” (And you wonder why your country is turning into an Islamic hellhole)

BERLIN: German Defence League demonstrates in support of Tommy Robinson

On November 24th, the Germans showed solidarity with their English counterparts by protesting against the politically-motivated imprisonment of EDL leader, Tommy Robinson, in front of the British Embassy in Berlin.

Digital Journal  Supporters of the German Defence league held a demonstration at the same location that, as previously reported, they are now holding a regular weekly vigil until the release of Tommy Robinson.

“Why do they want to silence Tommy Robinson (a.k.a.Stephen Lennon)? He raises uncomfortable questions. He bravely brought a number of problems to light that are inextricably linked to the silent Islamic conquest of Britain. No one in British politics welcomes such news. “

“London however has already been the victim of devastating and deadly acts of terror, to say nothing of the countless violent crimes. The city has seen a shocking rise in gang rapes, perpetrated by Muslims, who are also responsible for the massive and systematic forced prostitution of native British girls.”

“In one particularly horrifying case, nine Muslims were found to have raped 631 girls. The gang raped one fifteen-year-old girl sixty times in a single day and killed two others.  These atrocities are also taking place in Germany. It’s no wonder that people like the radical Muslim imam Abu Qatada are let out on bail, while Tommy is held under inhuman conditions, allegedly in pretrial custody, as if he were a violent criminal.

The government has even gone further and now wants to throw Tommy Robinson into a maximum-security prison, where only the most hardened of criminals are locked up. And that for an alleged passport offense that took place some weeks ago. “We say to the British government ‘we don’t believe you’. We believe that you should stop the violence, terror and crime, committed daily by Muslims in Britain from spreading any further.

“You can’t suppress the truth. There are armies of Tommy Robinsons. We are all Tommy Robinson. You can’t lock up all of us. Not in Britain. Not in Germany. Not in Europe and not in the rest of the world.

Complete PC Bullshit

November 28, 2012

Butler University Students Told To Disavow Their “American-ness, Maleness, Whiteness, Heterosexuality, Middle-Class Status”…

White liberal guilt, an academia favorite.

Via College Fix:

A political science professor at Butler University asks students to disregard their “American-ness, maleness, whiteness, heterosexuality, middle-class status” when writing and speaking in the classroom – a practice the school’s arts and sciences dean defended as a way to negate students’ inherent prejudices.

The syllabus of the course at Butler, a small Midwestern liberal arts institution in Indianapolis, spells out that students should use “inclusive language” because it’s “a fundamental issue of social justice.”

“Language that is truly inclusive affirms sexuality, racial and ethnic backgrounds, stages of maturity, and degrees of limiting conditions,” the syllabus states, referencing a definition created by the United Church of Christ.

The syllabus of the class, called Political Science 201: Research and Analysis, goes on to ask students “to write and speak in a way that does not assume American-ness, maleness, whiteness, heterosexuality, middle-class status, etc. to be the norm.” It is taught by a black, female professor.

In an interview with The College Fix, Jay Howard, dean of Butler’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, denied this practice essentially presumes every student who walks through the door is a racist or misogynist.

He said students must be told not to assume such prejudices because such assumptions are ingrained into the culture and remain there until questioned. With that, a liberal arts education questions these assumptions, and such questions can make for uncomfortable situations, he said.

“Sometimes in order to broaden the conversation and broaden the understandings you’ve got to risk making people uncomfortable,” Howard said. “There’s nothing about a college education that guarantees you won’t be made uncomfortable. As a matter of fact, if you’re never made uncomfortable in your college education, you’re not really getting a college education.”

Foster Parents Have Children Removed for Being Members of Conservative Party

In light of Obama’s reelection, it is hard to believe things could get worse in the USA. But they can, and they will — as confirmed by Britain, which is a few steps ahead of us on the progressive road to self-imposed ruin. In that once free country, foster children are removed from parents deemed by the liberal establishment to have politically incorrect views:

A council has refused to back down over its decision to remove three children from their foster parents because their membership of the UK Independence Party meant that they supported “racist” policies.

“Racist” in Britain usually means failing to support the displacement of the native population with hordes of Islamic welfare colonists like Abu Qatada.

The children taken from the alleged “racists” are foreigners and ethnic minorities.

Joyce Thacker of the council’s Director of Children and Young People’s Services bleats about the children’s “cultural and ethnic needs” and UKIP’s resistance to the form of social corrosion called multiculturalism, even while admitting that the quality of care the couple has provided is not an issue. Evidently the authorities are worried that they might assimilate into British culture, which would defeat the purpose of importing them.

“Racism” isn’t about race. It’s about culture. More specifically, it is about the liberal ruling class replacing Britons (and Americans) with members of a culture more conducive to authoritarian statism.

UKIP
Hated by liberals: the ultimate endorsement.

Most Americans No Longer Desire Freedom – They Said So at The Polls

November 26, 2012

“Democratic fascism”

Pat emails: “Like Hitler’s pre-WW II Germany, U.S. freedoms are being whittled away unnoticed” – see Jack Wheeler’s article below:

“…. America continues to commit cultural and national suicide,… the difference between a Romney Presidency and that of Obama’s America [is that the first] would have started digging itself out of a fascist pit, and one that will now dig itself ever more deeply into it.
 
None Dare Call It Fascism defined the political system of America as “democratic fascism” – a fascist government not imposed by an unelected dictatorship, but by people democratically voting to impose it upon themselves:
“By a patient Fabian strategy taking many years, the American people have been persuaded, unwittingly and almost unconsciously, to voluntarily chain themselves to their colonial masters in Washington.

Americans have imposed the tyranny of Washington upon ourselves. No longer innocently oppressed, America has become of nation of belligerent beggars, demanding with insufferable arrogance an endless cornucopia of government handouts, subsidies, and ‘entitlements. Refusing to pay for them themselves, they demand that others pick up the multi-trillion dollar tab – most especially and contemptibly, their children and grandchildren.

This is, indeed, America´s real drug crisis. Forget smack and crack. By orders of magnitude, the most addictive and destructive drug in America is… government subsidies.

Once people are shooting up the dole into their veins, be they farmers on farm price supports, artists on NEA grants, businessmen on protective tariffs and quotas, fourth generation welfare moms, or well-to-do greedy geezers on Medicare and Social Security, they´re hooked far more than any heroin addict. And any threat to cut off or even diminish their drug supply makes them go berserk.

So any attempt to really cut the federal budget, much less balance the budget, is completely hopeless because so many millions of Americans want government goodies and don´t want to pay for them.”

 
That was written in 1997. Nov. 6 was its apotheosis.” *
 
 

Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler Thursday, 22 November 2012might as well confess this right at the start: this is the saddest Thanksgiving of my life. I am still having a very difficult time coping with Nov. 6.

Yes, the number of Moron Uneducated Mooching Taxtaking Americans has increased under Zero enough to get close enough to the margin of fraud, enabling the Dems to steal it via voter suppression and theft. But what really made it within the margin of fraud is what hurts the most:

That millions of non-Democrats – Republicans, Conservatives, Libertarians – chose to not vote for Romney, thus choosing of their own free will to destroy their country in an act of malicious sado-masochism.

My term for them is Platonic Conservatives, Platonic Libertarians. The basic philosophical battle of Western Civilization has for 23 centuries been between Plato and Aristotle – between Platonists who believe the perfect must be the enemy of the good, and Aristotelians who believe it must not.

Romney is a good man, an infinitely better man than Zero – yet the Platonists demanded perfection. Their condemnation of him, as Ann Coulter cogently explains, is “preposterous.”

The difference between a Romney Presidency and that of Zero’s is not between Heaven and Hell, for neither of them exist here on earth, any more than does Plato’s World of Forms. The difference is an America that would have started digging itself out of a fascist pit, and one that will now dig itself ever more deeply into it. On Nov. 6, the Platonists chose the latter.

Freedom is fragile. Once freedom is gone — especially if it is thrown away not taken away — it is very difficult to get it back. As the great polymath Jacob Bronowski observes in his masterpiece, The Ascent of Man:

“We are being weighed in the balance at this moment. If we give up, the next step will be taken, but not by us. We have not been given any guarantee that Assyria and Egypt and Rome were not given. The ascent of man will go on, but don’t assume that it will go on carried by Western civilization as we know it.”

 That is as profound a historical statement as you are going to get. If America continues to commit cultural and national suicide as it did on Nov.6, the result will be one of history’s greatest tragedies.
Yet – this choice was not made suddenly and spontaneously on Nov. 6. It was, rather, the culmination of a long degrading series of choices America has been making for decades. Bronowski wrote those prophetic words not yesterday, but in 1973.

1973 was the year seven out of nine Justices of the Supreme Court treasonously trashed the Constitution with Roe v. Wade, overturning state bans on abortion.

It was the year Richard Nixon established the Endangered Species Act. Earlier (1971), Nixon created the Environmental Protection Agency, established wage-price controls, and abandoned the gold standard for the dollar.

It was the year Nixon capitulated to a Democrat Congress and initiated the surrender of South Viet Nam to the Communists of North Viet Nam, ensuring that tens of thousands of Americans who fought and died there did so in vain.

It was the year Nixon presided over a “lavish expansion of the American entitlement state,” as documented by Nicholas Eberstadt in A Nation of Takers, which has never stopped expanding ever since, just as rapidly as our freedoms have been eroding.

1973 was almost 40 years ago. 14 years later, in 1997, I gave a keynote address to an organization of conservative leaders called the Council for National Policy (CNP) entitled None Dare Call It Fascism. It defined the political system of America as “democratic fascism” – a fascist government not imposed by an unelected dictatorship, but by people democratically voting to impose it upon themselves. An excerpt:

“By a patient Fabian strategy taking many years, the American people have been persuaded, unwittingly and almost unconsciously, to voluntarily chain themselves to their colonial masters in Washington.

Americans have imposed the tyranny of Washington upon ourselves. No longer innocently oppressed, America has become of nation of belligerent beggars, demanding with insufferable arrogance an endless cornucopia of government handouts, subsidies, and ‘entitlements.’ Refusing to pay for them themselves, they demand that others pick up the multi-trillion dollar tab – most especially and contemptibly, their children and grandchildren.

This is, indeed, America´s real drug crisis. Forget smack and crack. By orders of magnitude, the most addictive and destructive drug in America is welfare, government subsidies.

Once people are shooting up the dole into their veins, be they farmers on farm price supports, artists on NEA grants, businessmen on protective tariffs and quotas, fourth generation welfare moms, or well-to-do greedy geezers on Medicare and Social Security, they´re hooked far more than any heroin addict. And any threat to cut off or even diminish their drug supply makes them go berserk.

So any attempt to really cut the federal budget, much less balance the budget, is completely hopeless because so many millions of Americans want government goodies and don´t want to pay for them.”

 
 
That was written in 1997. Nov. 6 was its apotheosis.

So, what do we do? The problem was massive in 1997 and has metastasized exponentially to where the diagnosis for freedom in America is close to terminal. None Dare Call It Fascism outlined a number of proposed solutions, and we’ll be discussing them and others over the coming months.

Today, however, is Thanksgiving, a day of gratitude, a day of thanks to Providence for the blessings in our lives. With all the freedoms that have taken from us, we Americans still possess more freedoms than most anywhere else on earth. Our constitutional freedom to own guns is but one example. Americans are by far more religious than any other Western nation, a result of our constitutional freedom of religion. Americans are freer to say or write what they want – despite the CorruptMedia’s fanatical attempt to impose political correctness – than most any other people.

Or take the freedom to travel. Americans don’t need an exit visa or government permission to leave the country. In almost every country, you have to go through passport control to get an exit stamp before you can board a plane to fly out. In America – albeit after suffering through TSA – you don’t. At least not yet. Lots of folks expect it to come under Zero 2.

Yet simple gratitude is not enough on this Thanksgiving. What I’m suggesting is a conscious and sustained effort to remember freedom.

By that I mean, go back in time and remember the freedoms you once had and now are now gone or diminished. The older you are, the more examples you’ll recall. Which means this is a wonderful opportunity to discuss what life in America was like with your parents, grandparents, and elder relatives.

Relive what America was for them, recapture the joy and pride of what it meant to be an American without apology or guilt. Those days may seem like long ago. Yet remembering, reliving, and recapturing them can make them come alive for us again. This will help us commit to achieving a Free America once more.

It may take a long time before America is free as it once was. Let’s start today, on this Thanksgiving, by remembering the glorious liberties that Providence first bestowed upon our country. Those liberties created America. By remembering them, we can recreate them in America’s future.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

Liberals Want “No Gender” Kids

Social Engineering Hits the Top Toy Catalogue

Photoshop makes social engineering easy for Top Toy, Swedish franchise-holder for Toys R Us, allowing the company to make restitution for past thought crimes:

The country’s advertising watchdog reprimanded the company for gender discrimination three years ago following complaints over outdated gender roles in the 2008 Christmas catalogue, which featured boys dressed as superheroes and girls playing princess.

A comparison between this year’s Toys R Us catalogues in Sweden and Denmark, where Top Toy is also the franchisee, showed that a boy wielding a toy machine gun in the Danish edition had been replaced by a girl in Sweden.

Elsewhere, a girl was Photoshopped out of the “Hello Kitty” page, a girl holding a baby doll was replaced by a boy, and, in sister chain BR’s catalogue, a young girl’s pink T-shirt was turned light blue.

Top Toy, Sweden’s largest toy retailer by number of stores, said it had received “training and guidance” from the Swedish advertising watchdog, which is a self-regulatory agency.

Says Jan Nyberg, director of sales at Top Toy:

“With the new gender thinking, there is nothing that is right or wrong.”

That would seem to sum up liberal morality in a nutshell — except that boys playing with toy guns and girls dressed up like princesses are wrong.

The objective of our rulers’ relentless social engineering is a civilization in which no woman is more feminine than Rosie O’Donnell, and no man more masculine than Tom Hanks.

American Liberty is Slipping Away

Fear, Everywhere, Fear

 By Alan Caruba

If my emails and the headlines I am reading indicate anything, there is widespread fear among Americans that something terrible has occurred with the reelection of President Obama. Not all Americans, though. Those who voted for Obama appear to remain oblivious despite the threat of a “fiscal cliff” or the new taxes in Obamacare that will kick in on January 2nd.
We have a Secretary of the Treasury, Timothy, Geithner, calling for an end to debt ceilings, apparently believing that America can continue to borrow money to pay for the interest on its escalating debt, now pegged at $16 trillion and growing daily. The U.S. borrows $4 billion a day. Anyone with a credit card knows that their payments increase as they struggle to deal with their personal debt. Eventually they either declare bankruptcy or turn to companies that negotiate a payment to release them.
If America was to default on its debt, the dollar, already in free fall, would be worth nothing. We would be bartering shiny beads and anything else to buy food and other necessaries. We would become Zimbabwe where you need a million of their dollars to buy a loaf of bread.
Writing recently on her Fox Business blog, Gerri Willis spelled out the huge rise in taxes Americans are facing. “All told, next year, total taxes will go to almost 50% for the middle class; the very group that the president says he wants to protect. That means 50 cents out of every dollar earned has to go to the government. Half of everything will go to an entity that didn’t earn that money, and shouldn’t be entitled to all that dough.”
What kind of madness is it that the Teamsters union would impose such senseless rules that it would weaken Hostess to the point of bankruptcy, preferring to let the company die rather than to protect the jobs of 18,500 bakers? Other unions are engaged in attacks on a weakened economy. What kind of nation is it that its government employees are lobbying Congress to not only increase their pay, but to exempt them from the impact of the spending cuts scheduled to kick in?
There is a full-scale attack on the privacy Americans have taken for granted, protected by the fourth Amendment that says “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated…”
On November 14th, the Heritage Foundation asked “Do you trust the government with your computer?” The government has had “13 breaches and failures of its own cybersecurity just in the last six months.” Even so, “the President and his allies in the Senate are pushing forward to regulate America’s cyber-doings, without any clues about how much this will cost or how it will work.”
“It has become the norm with this President—if Congress fails to accomplish his objectives, he goes around it with executive orders and federal regulations. He’s doing it again. Congress did not pass the Cybersecurity Act of 2012 before the election, so the President has issued a draft of an executive order to put much of that legislation in place without lawmakers voting.”
This is the very essence of tyranny and the President has had four years to perfect it. Are conservative think tanks the only ones paying any attention? It would appear so.
A new proposed law in the Senate would strip Americans of any privacy as they communicate with one another by email. A vote for the law would allow warrantless access to American’s email and is scheduled for a vote shortly. It would allow 22 federal agencies as well as state and local law enforcement to access one’s emails with nothing more than a subpoena. This is totally unconstitutional.
Already $16 trillion in debt, the government is looking for ways to take over the $3 trillion that is held in private retirement plans such as 401(k) plans and IRA’s. A recent hearing by the Treasury and Labor Departments addressed the nationalization of the nation’s pension system. The director of the National Senior’s Council, Robert Crone, warns “It is clear that this is the first step towards a government takeover. It feels just like the beginning of the debate over health care and we all know how that ended up.”
As we move closer to an Electoral College vote confirming Obama’s reelection, whistleblowers are coming forth in Ohio, Florida and elsewhere to reveal that significant voter fraud was a contributing factor, but it receives little or no media coverage. One must ask how 99% of votes in Philadelphia districts went to Obama and ask why nothing is being done to investigate this and other offenses such as the 141.1% of the vote recorded in Florida’s St. Lucie County. That is statistically impossible, but it robbed Rep. Allen West (R) of his seat in Congress.
This isn’t government. It is gangsterism. It is “the Chicago way.”
The monster Homeland Security Agency just graduated its first class of FEMA Corps, kids aged 18-24, recruited from the President’s Americorps volunteers, that will become a full time, paid standing army. Fears of FEMA camps abound and in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, people seeking shelter and food were herded into one that resembled a concentration camp of the Nazi regime and told not to use various means of communication to contact the media or outside community. They went from hurricane victims to prisoners of the government.
In so many ways, the freedoms protected by the U.S. Constitution are in danger of disappearing along with the separation of powers it requires.
Little wonder that citizen’s petitions from a growing number of states are called for secession. Or that governors are refusing to set up the Obamacare exchanges required by a law that has taken control of twenty percent of the nation’s economy; their budgets held hostage to Medicaid.
On an individual level, people who have jobs are fearful of losing them. College graduates are fearful of the huge debt they carry for the loans they received. People wonder if they can afford to get married. Married couples fear the cost of having another child. Homeowners fear not being able to pay their mortgages. Seniors fear that their savings won’t last as they live longer.
There is ample reason to fear not only the collapse of the nation’s economy, but the loss of liberty in America.

We Simply Traded One Dictator for Another Except Mubarak Was Better

November 24, 2012

 

EGYPT: In a very Obama-like move, President Morsi declares himself God…and the people are outraged!

 

Mohamed Morsi declared that any laws or decrees he’s made since he took office June 30, and any made before a new constitution is put in place, are final and cannot be overturned or appealed. Angry protesters filled the streets of Cairo, and set fire to several Muslim Brotherhood offices around the country.

Hey…you voted for a radical Islamist,  just like we did, in the United States. You get the government you deserve. 

Protesters storm several offices of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood inappropriately-named ‘Freedom and Justice’ party 

CNN  Morsi also declared that a 100-man council drafting a new constitution, plus the upper house of parliament, cannot be dissolved. He granted the council two more months to finish a draft constitution, meaning the panel has six months to finish. That means Morsi, who this year took over legislative powers from the military council that ruled after Hosni Mubarak’s ouster, could have at least six months of unchecked rule by decree. The draft constitution would go to a referendum before it is finalized.

Morsi’s moves come three days after the start of violent protests in central Cairo, largely by people angry at Morsi’s government and the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist movement to which Morsi belongs. There also is turmoil in the constitution panel, which has been torn between conservatives wanting the constitution to mandate that Egypt be governed by Islam’s Sharia law and moderates and liberals who don’t.
