Fox News Channel is airing a new video of school children at a PTA meeting chanting the praises of the Obama administration. This is even a little more creepy than the one that came to light last week. While the children do not mention Obama's name specifically, there is no doubt about the allegiance of those who organized this performance.
MSNBC's Norah O'Donnell and liberal bloggers are defending these demonstrations of adoration and allegiance with the 'what's the big deal' defense. But, the left knows what the 'big deal' is. They know that this is indoctrination, and that is precisely why they are fine with it. All modern day tyrannical regimes use the public school system to promote and perpetuate loyalty, and most deny it. Adolf Hitler however, was quite open about it.
"When an opponent declares, 'I will not come over to your side, I calmly say, 'Your child belongs to us already... What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.' " - Adolf Hitler, Nov. 1933
I know the left is disgusted with these endless comparisons to Hitler and the Nazis. If the left really wishes for these comparisons to cease, it would really be helpful if the left would stop making these comparisons so easy to make.

Nunes is the author of the children's book I am Barack Obama which "allows children to see themselves through the inspirational story of President Obama growing up as an ordinary child asking, 'Who will change the world?' ", and ultimately realizing "that he will"....(gag,..gag,...puke). Nunes is also the CEO of Brandnuwords publishing and is a Senior Vice President for Programs at The Jamestown Project. She is all about the socialist indoctrination of our children, as is The Jamestown Project. Michelle Malkin has been all over this story.
The indoctrination of our children has been going on for a very long while. I was introduced to Marxism in 1972 by my high school "American Government" teacher and, as a result of that indoctrination, I remained a Marxist till the mid 80's. If it seems that there is more of it going on now, well, it only seems that way. The fact is that now, they are only getting caught more often. Thank God for the Fox News Channel.
An interesting aside to all of this is the incredible irony of the name of The Jamestown Project. The Jamestown Project is a socialist group, and yet, they have chosen as the name for their group an historic example of the failure of socialism. In The Great Thanksgiving Hoax, Richard J. Maybury explains that many early colonies practiced socialism with disastrous results.
Many early groups of colonists set up socialist states, all with the same terrible results. At Jamestown, established in 1607, out of every shipload of settlers that arrived, less than half would survive their first twelve months in America. Most of the work was being done by only one-fifth of the men, the other four-fifths choosing to be parasites. In the winter of 1609-10, called "The Starving Time," the population fell from five-hundred to sixty.
Then the Jamestown colony was converted to a free market, and the results were every bit as dramatic as those at Plymouth. In 1614, Colony Secretary Ralph Hamor wrote that after the switch there was "plenty of food, which every man by his own industry may easily and doth procure." He said that when the socialist system had prevailed, "we reaped not so much corn from the labors of thirty men as three men have done for themselves now."
Before these free markets were established, the colonists had nothing for which to be thankful. They were in the same situation as Ethiopians are today, and for the same reasons. But after free markets were established, the resulting abundance was so dramatic that the annual Thanksgiving celebrations became common throughout the colonies, and in 1863, Thanksgiving became a national holiday.
Should Charisse Carney-Nunes, and mmmm, mmmm, mmmm, Barack Hussein Obama have their way, Americans would likewise, not have much to be thankful for. If socialists could learn anything from Karl Marx which would truly be profitable, it is this;
"History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce."
NBC is denying ALG's allegations. NBC News president Steve Capus said, “I’m still in shock, and outraged that this reckless organization would go out with such a defamatory, irresponsible statement."
According to ALG records, the email came from the Blackberry and email address of Jane Stone, a producer for NBC's Dateline. The email was sent to Alex Rosenwald, the ALG Director of Media Outreach.
The news release to which Ms Stone apparently responded was one in which ALG called upon Congress to defund ACORN. Americans for Limited Government does not contend that NBC or its parent company GE, are anti-Semitic. What is highly disturbing, however, is that there clearly is a culture at NBC that has allowed this person who clearly has issues to go unchecked.
Ms Stone claims she did not send the offensive email. If that is not the case, we at ALG call upon her to help ascertain who did send it using her Blackberry and her email address. If Ms Stone did, in fact, send it, we at ALG call upon Ms Stone to apologize to Mr. Rosenwald, and we call upon the NBC hierarchy above Ms Stone to join her in issuing that apology.
ALG is emphatic that they did their 'due diligence' before going public.
ALG Response to NBC Accusations on Politico: "We did our due diligence."
Carter Clews, Director of Communications, Americans for Limited Government
We at Americans for Limited Government are saddened that instead of helping us to get to the bottom of the hateful email that was indeed sent from NBC's server, and this can be verified, and was not tampered with, which can also be verified, that NBCPresident Steve Capus has instead chosen to circle the wagons and protect what is indefensible with hysterical, frantic accusations.
This email has left a digital footprint that is undeniable. We did our due diligence. We have confirmed that it indeed came from NBC's server and Jane Stone's email address.
As before, we renew our offer that we made to both Ms. Stone and NBC President Capus over the phone today to get to the bottom of who sent this email from Ms. Stone's Blackberry email address. That offer remains open, and we would like it very much if both Ms. Stone and NBC would issue an apology to both Americans for Limited Government, and Mr. Alex Rosenwald, who was the target of this hateful email.
So, did she, or didn't she? I am sure that there will be more to come very soon.

President Obama spoke today before the U.N. general assembly and demonstrated that he, like every U.S. President before him, is willing to engage in the futility of the middle east peace process. But, unlike his predecessors, President Obama had the good sense to end the middle east peace charade before it began. He did this by uttering these words, "without preconditions". The right of the state of Israel to exist has always been the the one issue upon which neither side has been willing to negotiate. In the past, Israel has been so desirous of peace that they have been willing to give the Palestinians all that they asked, save one; the extermination of the state of Israel.
When will we ever have a President who is willing to speak the truth on the subject of peace in the middle east? The harsh reality is this, that there will be no peace in the middle east until everyone who has a will to fight is dead and buried. From Israel's point of view, it is impossible to negotiate peace with an enemy who is 100% committed to your total destruction, and has demonstrated that they are absolutely unwilling to ever capitulate on that point. The entire process is farce.
The entire 'Palestinian problem' is a farce, a contrivance, the sole purpose of which is to destroy Israel. There is no such thing as a 'Palestinian people', there is no such thing as a 'Palestinian identity'. It is a myth created by by genocidal Arabs as an excuse to wage a war of annihilation against the state of Israel.
"In a March 31, 1977 interview with the Amsterdam-based newspaper Dagblad de Verdieping Trouw, PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhse’in said: The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct ‘Palestinian people’ to oppose Zionism. For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan."
Nothing has changed since this 1977 admission. The goal of the so called Palestinians has not changed, and the right of Israel to exist and to defend herself is not even a legitimate question. So how could Obama go before the U.N. today and perpetuate the myth of Israeli occupation, legitimize Palestinian claims to a nonexistent homeland, and call once again for a restart of the farcical 'peace process', this time, without preconditions? Because he is a Marxist, and as a Marxist, he is an anti-Semite, and more importantly, he is an anti-Zionist. Obama is throwing Israel under the bus, pure and simple.

- "Card Check" portion of the bill has been discarded.
- Mandatory deadlines for elections when the union organizers feel they have a majority employee support.
- Mandatory arbitration for 'first contracts' between a newly formed union and the employer.
- Equal time access to employees for union organizers.
- Increase penalties to employers who violate labor laws to triple the current levels.
Republican legislators say that Specter's optimism over a passage of this bill before the end of the year is unrealistic. At the moment, Democrats do not have a filibuster proof majority in the Senate. We need to get every Republican on board to oppose this bill, because any legislation which gives unions additional leverage is a job killer.
Virginia, where I live, is a 'right to work' state. That means that trade unions are specifically barred from entering into agreement with employers so that new hires must join the union or pay union dues as a condition of employment. One of the arguments in favor of 'right to work' statutes is that right to work states tend to have lower unemployment rates than states that have not adopted this legislation. That is true.
The Unemployment Compensation Extension Act of 2009 (HR 3548) is very close to passage and would extend unemployment benefits another 13 weeks in states with unemployment levels above 8.5%. There are 23 states in the union which would not qualify for the extension (have unemployment rates below 8.5%). Of those states, more than half (12) are right to work states. Of the top ten states with the lowest unemployment rates, eight of them are 'right to work' states. They are:
- North Dakota (4.3%) - right to work
- South Dakota (4.9%) - right to work
- Nebraska (5.0%) - right to work
- Utah (6.0%) - right to work
- Virginia (6.5%) - right to work
- Montana (6.6%)
- Wyoming (6.6%) - right to work
- Iowa (6.8%) - right to work
- Oklahoma (6.8%) - right to work
- Vermont (6.8%)
I do understand that the there is an ideological connection (socialism) between the Democrat Party and 'Big Labor', I get that. However, if your goal is to "spread the wealth around, 'cause its good for everybody", one of the best ways to achieve that is by supporting 'right to work'. Unions hamper the economy, run corporations into the ground, and kill jobs.

There is, however, real racism being demonstrated in this issue. It is real racism to characterize the 'tea party movement' as the sole product of gun toting white bigots. Even worse, there is real racism on display with respect to the voices of decent which are being ignored, and even hidden from the public by the MSM. Now, do not get me wrong, I am not suggesting that there is any legitimacy to the leftist notion that the first amendment to the Constitution is a guarantee of a persons right to be heard. It is not. It is only a guarantee of an individuals right to speak, it is not a right to be heard. What I am saying is this, that there are voices of concerned Americans which are being ignored for reasons of race.
Voices like those of Walter E. Williams, who stated plainly his opposition to Obamacare in Live Free or Die;
“I doubt whether there are many Americans who think Congress has either the right or competency to choose where they live, what clothes they wear or what cars they drive. Yet many Americans stand ready to allow Congress to decide what doctors they go to and what treatments they receive. We forget that once we have government-sponsored health care, it can be used to justify almost any restraint on liberty. That's the justification behind helmet and seatbelt laws.
Britain is well along the road toward totally controlling health care. Steyn says, "Under Britain's National Health Service, for example, smokers in Manchester have been denied treatment for heart disease, and the obese in Suffolk are refused hip and knee replacements. Patricia Hewitt, the British Health Secretary, says that it's appropriate to decline treatment on the basis of 'lifestyle choices.'" Steyn adds, "Smokers and the obese may look at their gay neighbor having unprotected sex with multiple partners, and wonder why his 'lifestyle choices' get a pass while theirs don't. But that's the point: Tyranny is always whimsical."
Or, that of Star Parker. She wrote of her opposition to Obama's socialist agenda in Back on Uncle Sam's Plantation.
"I thought we were on the road to moving socialism out of our poor black communities and replacing it with wealth producing American capitalism. But, incredibly, we are going in the opposite direction. Instead of poor America on socialism becoming more like rich American on capitalism, rich America on capitalism is becoming like poor America on socialism.
Uncle Sam has welcomed our banks onto the plantation and they have said, "Thank you, Suh."
Now, instead of thinking about what creative things need to be done to serve customers, they are thinking about what they have to tell Massah in order to get their cash.
There is some kind of irony that this is all happening under our first black president on the 200th anniversary of the birthday of Abraham Lincoln. Worse, socialism seems to be the element of our new young president. And maybe even more troubling, our corporate executives seem happy to move onto the plantation. "
And, who in the MSM took any note of Kevin Jackson's condemnation of Jimmy Carter's race baiting comments in Carter Being Black;
"In case you didn’t know it, the real racists are people like Jimmy Carter, ok let me just say it…the Democrats! Think of it, a white Democrat guy from GEORGIA! You just can’t get any more racist than that…unless you are a Democrat from Alabama or Tennessee or South Carolina…or anywhere!
If you had the Democrats’ record on civil rights, you would be looking for a scapegoat too! Democrats are vicious racists! Thieving racists, in fact. They will readily use the KKK to paint Republicans as racists, KNOWING that the KKK is their organization!
Remember folks, Democrats voted to KEEP lynching laws on the books, and voted over 209 times against anti-lynching laws, including Senator Byrd’s proud declaration of being against anti-lynching. Hey, you never know when you will run into an “uppity [Republican] Negro,” who needs lynching like say…Clarence Thomas!
Democrats didn’t want black people learn to read back in the day! And when those pesky Republicans insisted that blacks be educated, Democrats designed a system where blacks have the lowest graduation rates and the lowest college entrance rates. The education system for blacks couldn’t have been better designed, if it had been designed by the KKK. Wait…it WAS!"
In the wake of the controversy over Joe Wilson's "You Lie" outburst, who in the MSM thought to reference Thomas Sowell's article Listening to a Liar:
"Hubris-laden charlatans" was the way a recent e-mail from a reader characterized the Obama administration. That phrase seems especially appropriate for the Charlatan-in-Chief, Barack Obama, whose speech to a joint session of Congress was both a masterpiece of rhetoric and a shameless fraud.
To tell us, with a straight face, that he can insure millions more people without adding to the already skyrocketing deficit, is world-class chutzpa and an insult to anyone's intelligence. To do so after an analysis by the Congressional Budget Office has already showed this to be impossible reveals the depths of moral bankruptcy behind the glittering words. Did we really need CBO experts to tell us that there is no free lunch? Some people probably did and the true believers in the Obama cult may still believe the President, instead of believing either common sense or budget experts."
How about Shelby Steele's opinion of President Obama's knee jerk reaction to Gates incident;
"Where race is concerned, I sometimes think of the president as the Peter Sellers character in “Dr. Strangelove.” Sellers plays a closet Nazi whose left arm—quite involuntarily—keeps springing up into the Heil Hitler salute. We see him in his wheelchair, his right arm—the good and decent arm—struggling to keep the Nazi arm down so that no one will know the truth of his inner life. These wrestling matches between the good and bad arms were hysterically funny.
When I saw Mr. Obama—with every escape route available to him—wade right into the Gates affair at the end of his health-care news conference, I knew that his demon arm had momentarily won out over his good arm. It broke completely free—into full salute—in the “acted stupidly” comment that he made in reference to the Cambridge police’s handling of the matter. Here was the implication that whites were such clumsy and incorrigible racists that even the most highly achieved blacks lived in constant peril of racial humiliation. This was a cultural narrative, a politics, and in the end it was a bigotry. It let white Americans see a president who doubted them.
Mr. Obama’s “post-racialism” was a promise to operate outside of tired cultural narratives. But he has a demon arm of reflexive racialism—identity politics, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and now Skip Gates. You can only put a demon like this to death by finding out what you really believe. We should hold Mr. Obama to his post-racialism, and he should get to know himself well enough to tell us what he really means by it. As for the odd triad of Messrs. Gates, Crowley and Obama, only Mr. Crowley seems to have functioned outside his cultural narrative. "
If any of the foregoing statements had been made by 'white' authors or columnists they certainly would not have escaped the notice of the MSM, or of the usual Democratic suspects in DC. To the left, the very notion of a black conservative is an aberration, even an abomination to some. Black conservatives are neither praised nor criticized. It is as if they do not exist, as if they are non-persons. And, it is more because of the color of their skin, than because of their ideology. Is that not racist? To ignore the opinions of black conservatives just because they are black.
Yet, when circumstances dictate that the left cannot simply ignore a black conservative, the criticism which they must endure is far worse than that which any white conservative would have to withstand. As this next example makes abundantly clear.
Entertainer Lloyd Marcus has been an active participant in the 'tea party movement', and he has experienced real racism while on the road with the 'Tea Party Express';
"I traveled on the Tea Party Express tour bus as a singer/songwriter, entertainer and spokesperson; 16 states, 34 rallies in two weeks. I experienced vicious racial verbal attacks, not from the tea party protesters. The racial hate expressed against me all came from the left, people who support president Obama’s radical socialist agenda.
Unfortunately, my deleted email box is littered with numerous messages expressing the following, “You are the dumbest self hating f****** n***** I have ever seen!”
These racists are outraged by my opening lines I boldly proclaimed at each rally. “Hello my fellow patriots! I am NOT an African-American! I am Lloyd Marcus, AMERCIAN!” At every rally, my proclamation inspired great applause and cheers of joy and approval from the audiences. After each rally many came to me with tears in their eyes. They said, “I thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you said. I am Irish (or Italian, or Asian) American. And yet, I would never hyphenate. I feel hyphening divides us. While it is fine to honor one’s origin, let’s all be American first”.
As to the claim that the tea party protesters are racist, they are not. Quite the opposite. At every rally with thousands in attendance, I was overwhelmingly showered with affection and thanks for standing up for America. At one rally, a sign read, “Lloyd Marcus for President”. These protesters are not racist. They are decent hard working ordinary Americans who love their country and disapprove of the radial changes planned by the Obama administration. Race is not an issue with them. They have deep concerns for their country."
Jesus said, "Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' and behold, the log is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye"- Matt. 7:4-5. Take notice Democrats! He was most certainly referring to people like you!

"But I will acknowledge at this point, and I suppose English people are a bit different from you, because instead of truck we say lorry, instead of elevator we say lift, and instead of letting people die in the street we have free health care."Under Great Britain's NHS elderly patients routinely, and often erroneously, fall under the purview of the Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP), often referred to by critics as the "Death Pathway". The LCP is nothing less that a health care rationing system that all too often sentences patients to death who are merely suffering from dehydration or have been over medicated. On the issue of the quality of care under NHS, the British Patients Association has recently issued a report in which it was very critical of health care under the NHS. The Telegraph reports that;
"In the last six years, the Patients Association claims hundreds of thousands have suffered from poor standards of nursing, often with 'neglectful, demeaning, painful and sometimes downright cruel' treatment. The charity has disclosed a horrifying catalogue of elderly people left in pain, in soiled bed clothes, denied adequate food and drink, and suffering from repeatedly cancelled operations, missed diagnoses and dismissive staff."
Now, health care which is described as "sometimes downright cruel" probably does not bother Mr. Brand since he is known to engage in cruelty for his own gratification. Take for example when the 'British dirt bag' took part in a BBC radio broadcast on Oct. 18, 2008, in which he left repeated messages on the answering machine of British actor Andrew Sachs describing in obscene detail his sexual exploits with the actor's granddaughter. Brand even joked on the air that Sachs might commit suicide when he hears the messages. Even worse, at the time of this cruel and tasteless 'joke', Sachs' wife Melody was in hospital recovering from hip surgery.
Of course, the left is never concerned about the character content of the individuals who support their designs, but it is very telling to the rest of us how often their supporters expose themselves to be complete reprobates.

"I think people are guilty of that kind of personal attack against Obama, have been influenced to a major degree by a belief that he should not be president because he happened to be African American."
Carter might have elaborated further if it had not been for the inebriated Kanye West, who stormed onto the stage and interrupted the ex-President's prepared statements.
Michael Steele took 'der Nationalen Hämorrhoiden' to task on the racism issue late Wednesday.

"A lie told often enough becomes truth" - Vladimir Lenin.
When the current crop of Democrats depart this life and pass through the gates of hell, they are going to be looking for Comrade Lenin, and they are going to be pissed. From the time that Barack Obama announced his candidacy, Democrats have been painting his opponents as racists.
They are no closer now than they were then, to establishing it as a credible premise. Yet, I suppose for lack of a better strategy, they continue hope that this lie will somehow become truth.
Their latest impotent attempt has come in the form of trotting out the anti-Semitic, Presidential failure, Jimmy Carter.
The addition of Jimmy Carter to the 'all Obama detractors are racist' sales force seems like a particularly poor recruitment decision given that it was only a few days ago that Carter's book, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, made the Bin Laden recommended reading list. A fact that Rush Limbaugh touched upon today when he dubbed Jimmy Carter the 'National Hemorrhoid". Have you noticed that Democrat ex-Presidents never go away. They keep returning, like dogs to their own vomit, to reinsert themselves into the public debate, as if anybody on either side of the aisle, wanted or needed them to do so. They truly are , 'national hemorrhoids'.
The fact is, that it does not matter who the Democrats recruit to sell this product; the only people who are buying, are the people doing the selling. This particular lie will never become truth by virtue of the fact that the people they are trying to sell, are the very same people about whom they are lying. I don't care how good a salesman one might be; there is no market for self-flagellation.

In 1987, in the case Meredith Corp. v. FCC, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled that in the absence of a Congressional mandate, the FCC did not have to enforce the doctrine. In the spring of 1987 the Democrat-controlled Congress attempted to provide that mandate. Both houses of Congress passed a bill which would have provided the statutory requirement needed to ensure the continued enforcement of the doctrine by the FCC. President Reagan vetoed that bill. In August of 1987 the FCC repealed the Fairness Doctrine by 4-0 vote.
In 1988 Rush Limbaugh moved to New York City and began broadcasting The Rush Limbaugh Show nationally. Liberals recognized that the phenomenon of The Rush Limbaugh Show presented a serious threat to their agenda and, being ever unwilling to allow the 'fairness doctrine' to give up the ghost, have made repeated demands to Limbaugh that he allow them equal time to refute his right wing pontifications, to which Limbaugh has always responded, " I am equal time".
The success of the Limbaugh show proved to the broadcasting industry that the public was literally starved for an alternative to the lock step left leaning MSM. Today conservative political talk dominates the radio airwaves, and the Fox News Channel produces 9 of the top 10 highest rated cable news shows.
President Reagan died June 5, 2004, but his legacy is still being written. By repealing the 'Fairness Doctrine', he has given us the wherewithal to have the current debate; 'liberty vs. tyranny'. America owes Ronald Wilson Reagan a debt of gratitude which we cannot repay, except, possibly, by winning this debate and restoring our republic.

The 9/12 March on Washington rally yesterday was so huge that even MSNBC not only reported it, but estimated the numbers of attendees in the hundreds of thousands. Check out the video below.
Of the massive showing by tea party protesters yesterday, White House senior adviser David Axelrod said today that the 'tea party movement' does not represent the majority of Americans who support health care reform. Really, Mr. Axelrod! Hundreds of thousands of people from across the nation got up off their butts and traveled to Congress' door step to protest against it yesterday, while fraction of that showed up today to support it, and you, Mr. Axelrod, can make that statement with a straight face? I've got news flash for you, Mr. Axelrod! Perception is everything!
UPDATE: Daily Kos bemoans dismally small turn out. 09/14/09
A contributor to the Daily Kos website estimated the numbers at the pro-healthcare rally yesterday at anywhere from 500 to 1000 participants and blames the NFL for dismal turn out. Hey, check it out yourself, I couldn't make this stuff up. Here are a few shots from the rally.
Well, that poll has now closed. There were 16 participants in the poll and here are the results;
- The FBI overlooked the questionable things in Jones' past. - 1 (6%)
- The White House was aware of Jones' background and approved him anyway. - 0 (0%)
- The White House was aware of Jones' background and approved him because of it. - 12 (75%)
- Who cares! - 3 (18%)
- Margin of error (+ or -) whatever.

Candidate Obama said that we should judge him by the people that he surrounds himself with. We did as he asked! We looked at the people that he surrounded himself with and decided that he was a socialist. We looked at his agenda and decided that he most certainly was a socialist.
Once he was elected, he and the Democrats in Congress began to implement that socialist agenda. We the people protested, we called them, we wrote them, we e-mailed them, and we have confronted them face to face at town hall meetings. At no time have they taken us seriously. They have called us 'racists', 'right wing extremists', 'nazis', 'GOP tools', 'teabaggers', 'astroturf' and 'liars'. They have ignored us, dismissed us, and demonized us. And yet, we have not gone home, we have not given up, and we have not backed down, not even one inch.
Today the people turned out for the largest protest to date. Hundreds of protests across the nation with a march on Washington DC as the centerpiece. Michelle Malkin is reporting the nationwide numbers to be close to 2 million people. In Washington DC alone, the numbers were in the tens of thousands, (as the pictures below will attest to). The 9/12 Rallies were a huge success, but the deafness of Washington has infected the MSM as well. Very few news outlets have felt today's events rose to the level of being 'news worthy'.
Our President and our legislators are playing a dangerous game with our lives, and our future. Many times in the history of the world, leaders have felt comfortable ignoring the dissatisfaction of the people. More often than not, it has not turned out well for those leaders. So, we are asking Mr. Obama, Mr. Reid, and Ms. Pelosi;
CAN YOU HEAR US NOW? If you can't, you would do well to start!

Liberals in the state run media and on the web are all abuzz about the behavior of the Republicans during the Polarizer in Chief's speech last evening. Danielle Belton had this to say on her blog;
"Much of the Republican side of Congress sat through the speech grumpily looking like sad rabbits, sitting on their hands. House Minority Whip Eric Cantor, Blackberry in hand, texted throughout the speech. Some Republicans waved papers at the president. One Joe Wilson of South Carolina took it a disrespectful step further by actually shouting out "You lie!" at the president after Obama said the healthcare plan would not cover illegal immigrants. That was shocking in the sense that it is rare for a politician to directly call another politician a liar to their face, but it was a dangerous precedent in that Wilson did this during a joint session of congress to the President of the United States while he was speaking......it was an pretty big sign of disrespect to the office of the president."
In was Democrats who first broke the disrespect barrier in 2005 when, during President Bush's State of the Union speech, house Democrats shouted "No!" and booed the President.
Joe Wilson (R-SC) called the White House to apologize for calling the President a liar, but was he right? Well, technically, no. Persons receiving benefits under HR 3200 "must be lawfully present in a state in the United States.” However, on principle, Wilson is correct. Hr 3200 contains no provision for verification of the legal status of any recipients. The Democrats are leaving the door open for illegals to obtain benefits, while honestly being able to say that language in the legislation itself prohibits it. The Patriot Page stands behind Rep. Wilson's assertion that the President lied on this issue.
As to the other perceived inappropriate behavior exhibited by Republicans during the speech, it really could have been worse, and if the Democrats continue to follow their current course, it will be. Personally, I would have paid good money to see every Republican in that chamber stand up, fold their arms, and turn their backs on the President; and remain in that position for the duration of the speech.

I am not a native Virginian, but as I was in the process of moving to Virginia, I thought that it would be great to live under a state flag which read, "sic semper tyrannis' (thus always to tyrants). Of course, I did know that a motto alone does not insulate a people from the tyrannical designs of evil men, or from those who do their bidding. On Aug. 25 Jim Moran (D-VA) held a town hall meeting at a public school in Reston, VA. Opponents of nationalized health care organized a protest in which they exercised their constitutional rights to peacefully assemble and to demand redress of grievances. Many were carrying signs. One protester was carrying the sign shown at the right of this page. Officer Wesley Cheeks Jr., who was assigned to crowd control duty at that location, apparently was offended by the sign.
Watch the video of the incident, which seems to have been taken by the individual with the sign. Pay particular attention to the exchange at the end of the clip.
"This use to be America", the protester says. "It ain't no more", responds the officer.
As I write this, the President has just finished his speech on health care reform to a joint session of Congress. The speech was his typical Obaminable mixture of platitudes, distortions, lies, and damn lies. Amid cheers and boos coming from the right and the left side of the chamber, the President showed once again, that he is the great 'polarizer in chief'. The purpose of this speech was to motivate and embolden the Democrats in Congress to ram this 'national socialist measure' down America's throat.
Back in 1996, as election day approached, some conservatives were saying that "America needed four more years of Bill Clinton" in order to push Americans further to the right. They of course could not have foreseen the 'Lewinsky scandal' which shifted attention from what Clinton was doing from his office, to what he was doing in his office. Now, I am hearing murmurs from some conservatives suggesting that we need the Democrats to shove this health care bill through on their own, and thereby destroy themselves. The future, as always, is unforeseeable. Even if events unfold as expected, playing politics with dangerous pieces of legislation is morally repugnant. Yes, the Democrats may pay for it in the short term, but the American people will be those who suffer in the long term. The price is far too great. God, forbid it.

In fairness to Van Jones, we will examine his 'vicious smear campaign' defense. It was Van Jones who decided to deal with his disappointment over the Rodney King verdict by becoming a self professed communist. It was Van Jones who said;
"I met all these young radical people of color– I mean really radical: communists and anarchists. And it was, like, 'This is what I need to be a part of.'It was Van Jones who decided to found the Marxist organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM). It was Van Jones who established the racially biased 'Green For All' and 'Color of Change' organizations. It was Van Jones who said of the Columbine massacre;
"You've never seen a Columbine done by a black child. Never. They always say, 'We can't believe it happened here. We can't believe it's these suburban white kids.' It's only them!" "Now, a black kid might shoot another black kid. He's not going to shoot up the whole school."
It was Van Jones who called Republicans, "assholes". It was Van Jones who chose to sign a petition charging the U.S. government with masterminding the 9/11 attacks. And, it was all of the aforementioned acts by Van Jones which caused the outrage in which Glenn Beck, patriot and 'all around good guy', played a minor role.
Now that Van 'the commie' Jones has finally resigned, pundits on both sides of the aisle are asking what went wrong with the White House vetting process. It is really a rather stupid question! I mean, what are the choices?
A). The FBI overlooked all of the aforementioned issues in Jones' background.
B). The White House was aware of Jones' background and approved his appointment despite them.
C). The White House was aware of Jones' background and approved his appointment because of them.
Let me know what you think. At the top of the sidebar you will find a poll concerning this question.

Everybody is aware that sex sells, even in the political arena. It is a weakness in the human condition which is exploited often. And yes, I am exploiting it now.
Shorty after Sarah Palin had been named John McCain's running mate I published a post entitled Bikini Pics of Sarah Palin, and shorty thereafter, Bikini Pics of Sarah Palin: Update. These two posts generated an enormous number of daily hits at the time. The pictures of Sarah Palin shown here have made the rounds on the web since before the election. Both are photoshopped fakes. Nevertheless, I still get a few hits a week to those posts.
But, as they say, 'I have good news and I have bad news'. That was the bad news. The good news is that things have changed significantly. The current state of political discourse my seem grim, but there are reasons to be hopeful. Americans have become much more engaged and informed, and much of the information that they are getting, they are actually seeking.
In reviewing the keyword search details for this blog, I was pleased to discover that 53% of all keyword searches are associated with the details of HR 3200 which have landed searchers on Obama Health Care Plan Details. Even better; 25% of all keyword searches land folks on DSA Members in Congress.
It is the precise wording of those searches which is very telling. Here are a few;
- dsa members of congress
- nancy pelosi and dsa
- Members congress DSA scrubbed website
- Al franken DSA
- Congress DSA
- members congress DSA
It is obvious that these individuals want to know who the socialists are in our government. In addition, many of the page loads for that post came from a link which was placed in a discussion at a social networking site, the comment section of a blog, or an e-mail which someone was sent. Even though The Patriot Page does not generate a whole lot of traffic, and since I am a optimist, I prefer to view these things as an indication of a broader shift in American political thought.
And now, on a somewhat disturbing note, I must report that a small minority of keyword searches were from individuals looking for pictures of Nancy Pelosi in a bikini. If they are out there, and you have had the misfortune to have actually seen them, I sincerely hope that the loss of your eyesight will only be temporary.

Anger - A Rant (foul language warning)
Posted by Prophet 451 in General DiscussionMon Aug 31st 2009, 02:10 AM
F__k you. No, I'm not joking. I'm sick of this bulls__t. I'm sick of the way you've corrupted the public discourse. The way you've made it acceptable to hurl any insult you like at public officials. The way you blame us for the current atmosphere of hatred by accusing us of starting it with hating Bush. Like Bush didn't come on the heels of eight years of your tireless efforts to destroy Clinton by any means necessary, like Bush didn't give us good reason to complain. A couple of posters on a website compared Bush to Hitler and you've used it as free license to compare Obama to Hitler 24/7 and I'm sick of your hypocrisy, where it's acceptable to say s__t about Obama that you would have had an apopletic fit (and did) if anythign remotely similar had been said about your guys. Keith Olbermann calls Cheney a fascist when he was actually using fascist tactics and you think that gives you the freedom to call Obama a fascist, socialist, Marxist constantly for no reason at all. F__k you and your bulls__t false equivelancy.
I'm sick of the way you've made the populace stupid. Around a fifth of your populace thinks the sun orbits the earth, over half think evolution never happened. Your populace actually believe the media has a liberal bias. Not because it has, you have the most conservative media in the free world, but because you've shouted it so loud and so often that you've brainwashed the public into believing it, like the battered wife who parrots her husband's insults. You've got a whole segment of the populace shouting about socialism and fascism and none of them know what the f__king words mean. You've convinced them that fascism is a left-wing thing. You've got them so turned around that some of them actually believe global warming isn't happening. F__k you.
I'm sick of the way you try to destroy the whole concept of government. You've tricked the people into believing that government can't do anything right, always being careful to exclude the army because you love your bullets and bombs but you've so destroyed the public's ability to reason that they don't even think of interstate highways, the space program, the national parks program, etc. Government is always great when it's doing what you tell it and inevitibly corrupt when it isn't. F__k you.
I'm sick of your rewriting of history. You've bleated so loud and long that Reagan was a great president, that the New Deal didn't work, that cutting taxes increases revenues, that you actually have the people believing this bulls__t. And these are the same people who will go on to become teachers and fill their student's heads with this self-same bulls__t. Reagan was a mediocre president at best who had teh good fortune to be in power when the USSR collapsed under it's own weight and you bastards have turned him into teh Second Coming. You've rewritten history so that everything foul and hateful and wrong can be attributed to a Democrat while everything worthwhile is a Republican's glory. F__k you.
I'm sick of your dragging the centre ever further to the right. How many whackjob fringe ideas have you dragged into the mainstream? The aforementioned idea that tax cuts increase revenues, the Laffer Curve, the idea that Welfare harms the poor, the idea that there's rampant fraud in Welfare, the idea that whatever is good for corporations is good for the country. And you push these ideas through your corporate media and you do it so long and loud that they become part of the accepted political landscape and because it is easier to tell a lie than to debunk one, we never get away from this rancid s__t. F__k you.
I'm sick of your casual criminality. Teddy Kennedy, a man who's boots you were not worthy to lick, was just buried and all I've heard from my rightist friends for days is Chappaquidick, Chappaquiddick, Chappaquidick. Your f__king golden boy raped the Constitution, mainly because he wanted to; tortured random people (and waterboarding is torture, f__k you too) essentially because he wanted to; spent like a drunken sailor, essentially because he wanted to; invaded a soverign nation, essentially for the loot and destroyed people's lives, essentially for the evilulz and you bastards are obsessed with a f__king accident a Democrat had decades ago? You don't go on about Laura Bush killing some guy decades ago. Fuck you.
I'm sick of you praising pure evil. You're letting Dick Cheney be the standard-bearer for Republicanism. Dick Cheney, a man so nakedly evil that even his friends call him "Darth"; a man so callous that Lex Luthor would recoil in terror; a man who probably has dismembered hitchhikers in those man-sized safes and kills plants by his mere proximity. F__k you.
I'm sick of your attempts to tilt the playing field permanently in your favour. Democrats filibustered a few of Bush's most hateful judicial picks and you pr__ks started screaming about doing away with the filibuster but now you're in the minority, you're filibustering absolutely everything you can and whining when you don't get the chance. You ignored everything the Democrats had to say when you had power and now that you don't, you scream that everyone must be bipartisan. You don't budge a fucking inch on anything but you insist that everyone must compromise to meet you. That's your idea of politics: Don't move an inch, force the other guy to come to the right to meet you and call the result a "compromise". F__k you.
I'm sick of your corporatism. You dress it up in false populism but anyone with half a brain can see that you're the brought and paid for subsidiary of big business. You keep pushing tax cuts as the answer for absolutely everything, you keep sabotaging every attempt to control the excesses of big business. You geuinely think the world would be a better place if it was a combination of Bill Gibson's dystopian vision of a corporate dominated world and Ayn Rand's bulls__t Objectivism, yet another entry in mankind's endless attempts to find a moral justification for naked greed. You've taken the clinically insane spewings of a woman literally to the right of Hitler (pardon my Godwins) and the 1984-like vision of a dystopian author and convinced yourselves that would be a good place to live. Big business is the enemy of the people, always has been. The ideal for the corporate class is to have a small pool of people rich enough to buy their f__king crap and a much larger pool of people so poor and with so few options that they can be used and abused at the corporation's whim. A corporation's objective is not to look after you, it is to make ever-larger profits by any means necessary. You bastards want to reinstate f__king slavery to the corporate class and you've made the public so f__king stupid that they actually swallow the bulls__t you're serving up, they actually want to enslave themselves to the corporations that abuse them at every turn. They actually care more about the corporations right to make obscene profits than they care about their child's right to live on a habitable planet.
F__k you.F__k you, you scumridden shitehawks, you make me sick. Just f__k off and die.
Now, why did I feel that this was worth re-printing here? Two reasons. First, we are winning this debate, and this rant shows that they are aware that we are winning this debate. Second, it shows just how deranged they are. You can almost see him banging away on the keyboard at 2 am, the foam mingled with saliva flinging from the corners of his mouth as his head spins around on his tattooed torso. The left is very frustrated. They were so close to changing our 'free republic' into a 'people's republik'. We are throwing our 'sabot' into the wheels of the progressive machine to stop them from turning, and the left is not happy about it. They will try to stop us, by any means necessary, and they are capable of anything. They have already drawn first blood.
The thing to remember is that we are winning, and we will win, we just have to stand firm.

The poll also found;
"I voted for Obama, even though I am a staunch conservative. Why? Because McCain was the worst possible Republican candidate they could have chosen. I wanted the GOP to get a wake-up call. Instead, I got a wake-up call. The message? No matter how bad a Republican candidate might be, he/she would at least be in favor of the USA and it's freedoms. Instead we got a radical, racist, Marxist who is intent on destroying the principles on which this great nation was founded. I am so sorry I voted for Barry. Even Hillary would have been better."Hind sight is always 20/20! I suppose for some, there may be additional pain that they may have to endure beyond the remorse.
In reality, those who voted for Obama need not don sackcloth and ashes. It is not entirely their fault. The socialist wing of the Democratic party has been in the leadership thereof for more than a quarter of a century. America should have had this debate a long time ago, long before we found ourselves on the very brink of losing our republic. If America truly learns from this experience, the Democratic party is finished as a political power. If not, America may be in for a very long and painful struggle.

Does the bigger, more intrusive government designs of the 'statists' got you down? Well, this video from Tim Hawkins should help cheer you up. Sit back, click play, and watch as he puts a happy face on that menacing big government.
There now! Don't you feel better? Kinda gives you an all warm and fuzzy feeling inside, doesn't it?
