Feast Then Famine

The left has increased its rhetoric about people being denied health care if the Supreme Court overturns the unconstitutional life control law. But apart from this rhetoric being an outright lie (people won’t be denied health care, they just will have an ounce of freedom restored to them), it highlights an important point that conservatives need to remember and emphasize.

Communists and socialists promise a utopia if society gives in to them. And while they may seem to fulfill their promises in the immediacy (“See? Now everyone is covered by health care!”), in the long term they always fail.

A great example of this is how the socialist utopia of the United Kingdom is starving those children it has been able to ensnare into the socialist system. The Guardian story, “Pupils going hungry as school meals shrink, teachers warn” tries to blame the failure on outsourcing to private firms, but it cannot obscure the truth: when the state takes over so that all can be cared for, the long term effect is that all will suffer (with the exception of the bureaucrats who rule).

The same will be true when universal life control becomes ingrained in the U.S.: everyone will seemingly have “free” health care at first, but as time wears on it will become clear that all will be equally enslaved in a life control system that will deem who lives and who dies . . . all, of course, except for the bureaucrats who rule over us.

An Amusing Moment from the Bigots of Pennsylvania

The Patriot-News reported on bigots assembling in Carlisle, PA and Harrisburg, PA for “hoodie marches” that will exploit the death of Trayvon Martin and contribute to the racial hysteria sweeping the country by the now discredited civil rights movement.

I was going to write about this and compare it to all the other bigoted nonsense being perpetuated by the professional racists throughout the nation. But after I read this comment by “robo80” (April 03, 2012 at 6:32PM) in the Comments section of, “Rep. Thaddeus Kirkland organizes ‘Hoodie on the Hill’ event to call for justice in Trayvon Martin case,” I decided that I had to forgo that plan:

He looks like the love child of Donovan McNabb and Stanly from the Office (in that picture).
Look at Kirkland’s photo and see what “robo80” is saying. That humorous observation is a better than anything I could have written on this subject at the moment.

Harrisburg Bigots Say Blacks, Other Minorities Too Stupid to Get an ID

Conservatives advocate for voter ID because we want fair elections. We are against the election theft racket that is an integral part of the Democrat-Media complex, and that is threatening this nation. And because we are for law and order, the Democrat-Media complex and their leftist allies label us as “racists” and other nasty names. And it is this utter contempt for truth and any desire for understanding that informs my headline, my following column, and how I will address the left from now on in regards to this matter.

The Patriot-News published, “Harrisburg-area religious leaders say voter ID law will hinder poor, racial minorities.” The article states:

In a meeting Monday with The Patriot-News editorial board, a group of local religious leaders that included African-Americans and whites said the voter ID laws are part of a national agenda pursued by Republicans to suppress voting by racial minorities and the poor. 
“We firmly believe a lot of what is happening with the voter ID will set us back five decades or more,” said A.E. Sullivan Jr., president of the Interdenominational Ministers Conference of Greater Harrisburg.
I firmly believe in honest elections and not in bigots who think that doing the right thing is racist. I also believe that bigots who think that the poor, blacks, the old, and other so-called minorities are unable to get an ID should be publicly shamed and reprimanded for essentially saying that the poor, blacks, the old, and other so-called minorities are too stupid to be able to get an ID.

I personally know that the accusations of the Harrisburg bigots are untrue as I moved to Pennsylvania after I returned from Iraq in 2010. I had to go through the steps named in the story to get an ID and I honestly don’t consider myself to be superior to the next person. These so-called local leaders, aided by The Patriot-News and its sympathetic coverage of them, are bigots who are working to perpetuate the Democrat-Media complex’s election theft industry by slandering Republicans and conservatives. I have nothing but contempt for them.

I Thought We Weren’t Supposed to Worry about the Social Issues?

Pundits from the left and Right repeatedly insist that we aren’t supposed to worry about the so-called social issues. They claim that they are a distraction and that they’re a losing issue for conservatives.

So why am I still hearing about how we have to do something about Joseph Kony? He isn’t a threat to the United States and likely isn’t much of a threat to anyone else anymore. So why the clamor? (Especially since the U.S. already is in Uganda, supposedly assisting it with capturing or killing Kony.) But why is the U.S. doing this in the first place? What responsibility is it of ours?

You may ask how Kony and our war against him relate to the so-called social issues. Simple. The Kony 2012 video (and now its sequel) are all about highlighting Kony and the atrocities he is alleged to have committed against children—including using them to fight wars. Thus, the outrage generated at Kony stems from the alleged abuse and killing of children. And as we all know, whenever conservatives bring up the U.S. atrocity of murdering millions of children through abortion, we are told to shut up and that we are primitives who want to restrict freedom. Therefore, I want to know why I am supposed to be outraged at the atrocities that Kony allegedly has done.

I’ve lived with the institutionalized slaughter of children in America all my life and I’m constantly told to drop any outrage I have at this. So if anyone thinks I’m going to become outraged at Kony because of his alleged atrocities against children, he is wrong. If anyone thinks I’m going to demand more waste of American blood and treasure to go after a guy who is not a threat to the U.S., who likely isn’t a threat to Ugandans any longer, and who already may be dead, again, he is wrong.

Furthermore, I demand to know why both the left and Right aren’t loudly condemning this hysteria about Kony—a hysteria about a “social issue”—when we have so many “real” and “important” things to address.

Amnesty Advocates for Pussy Riot

Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) ran a story the other day with the following headline, “Amnesty Calls For Release of Pussy Riot Members.”

The story describes Pussy Riot as a female punk group and reports that:

The three were detained shortly after members of the group stormed a church in Moscow on February 21 and performed a song criticizing what they see as the Orthodox Church’s support of Prime Minister and president-elect Vladimir Putin.

RFE/RL continues:
The three admit to being members of the larger group, but deny taking part in the action at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior.
Amnesty said even if they did take part, Russia’s response -- including a possible seven year jail sentence for hooliganism -- was not “a justifiable response to the peaceful -- if , to many, offensive -- expression of their political beliefs.”
Assuming the facts are correct (and that is a big assumption), I have no sympathy for the accused who acted in an Occupy-like fashion. Yet Amnesty International sees a need to call for their release. I (generally) have no time for so-called human-rights organizations. I see them (again, generally) as advocates for terrorists, criminals, and anarchists—the true victims don’t concern them. The world would be better off if these NGOs / NPOs simply disbanded.

Muslims Playing the Victim as a Weapon

The York Daily Record (York, PA) recently ran a story called, “Workplace discrimination claims from Muslims spike in York County.” I read it and immediately thought of the news about Shaima Alawadi. I’ll explain why in just a bit. First, here’s a bit of information about Alawadi.

You might not have heard about Shaima Alawadi and maybe you never will. But if you do, it’s because the legacy media will use her to fan the flames of anti-American and anti-Christian hatred.

The Guardian (UK) published an entirely irresponsible story on the death of Shaima Alawadi (“Savage killing of Iraqi woman in California investigated as hate crime”), complete with reliance on quotes from the disreputable Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), insinuations on the non-existent “Islamophobia” in the U.S., and an utterly despicable attempt to link Alawadi’s death to the Trayvon Martin killing. In short, The Guardian’s story is complete disinformation.

The discovery of the disinformation produced about George Zimmerman may have caused the rest of the Democrat-Media complex to hold back somewhat on Alawadi’s death. They may be frightened that the truth about her death won’t fit their narrative, causing them to be disappointed yet again, and forcing them to continue searching for “Islamophobia” and a “Christian extremist” threat elsewhere. But rest assured, if authorities do determine that someone murdered Alawadi for the “right” reasons, leftists will exploit her death for all they can, using the “hate crime” to attack conservatives and intimidate us further.

Where’s the Outrage Over U.S. Deaths in Afghanistan?

Forget about the crisis of Afghanis slaughtering U.S. Troops for a moment. Forget about the overall problems with the stated U.S. strategy in Afghanistan for a moment. And forget about the fact that war always causes deaths and other casualties for a moment. Instead view the following paragraphs in light of the way the media behaved when George W. Bush was president.

CNSNews.com reports that, “Afghan Forces Have Killed 7 U.S. Troops This Year; 69% of Afghan War Casualties Have Come in Obama’s 3 Years.” Where is the legacy media outrage over this? And where is the mainstream Democrat outrage over this? Where is the daily hysteria? Where are all the condemnations of U.S. leaders? And where are the calls for prosecutions (and worse) of U.S. leaders? The silence and hypocrisy is astounding. I utterly resent the Democrat-Media complex because of their abandonment of their First Amendment duties, and their outright contempt and hatred for foundational America.

But while I have long resented and held in contempt the Democrat-Media complex, I am growing increasingly resentful of conservatives and other non-leftists who interact with the media for any other purpose than to expose them for the frauds they are, and to defeat them.

How much longer conservatives can continue viewing the Democrat-Media complex for anything other than the enemies they truly are?

Political Speech and U.S. Troops, Part II

I recently wrote about the seeming double standard that the U.S. has for some Troops over others. The good news is that I’m not the only one who is concerned with this.

Marine veteran and Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) wrote a letter to the Marine Corps requesting that it stop the discharge of Gary Stein (the Marine who expressed his opinions regarding the President online).

Rep. Hunter’s letter specifically states:
As you are well aware, the Department of Defense (DoD) issued Directive Number 1344.10 regarding First Amendment rights to speech and other activities. However, this policy is both vague and contradictory in the context of new “social media.” In fact, nothing in the directive actually mentions social media and what activity is or is not approved for active duty servicemembers.
I can vouch from an Army perspective that military guidelines on free speech and Servicemen are vague and contradictory at best. Furthermore, enforcement of any such rules seems arbitrary. Consider the Soldier the Army punished for appearing on stage at a Ron Paul rally. It’s true that the Army could cite the following portion (Section 1-10) of AR 670-1 (“Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms and Insignia”) to back its decision:
