ELDER PATRIOT – The Daily Mail has run a story detailing ISIS use of young boys to carry out executions. Calling them “Cubs of the Caliphate,” the growing depravity of ISIS is demonstrated by a new video they released using social media. In the video a 10-year old boy uses a knife to behead a Syrian army officer.
For those idiots amongst us who insist on equating Islam with Christianity consider their radical extremes that serve to define any organization: The mainstream media defines Islamic extremism by the actions of these murderous barbarians. The same mainstream media defines radical Christianity by those lobbying to save the lives of unborn children. I’d like someone to explain the moral equivalency of the two.
U.S. News is featuring an article on the early success Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are enjoying in the polls. Has it occurred to anybody else that the popularity of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders is based more on the electorate’s disdain for the “moderate” politicians who’s party identification is hard to tell by their voting records?
Over more than two centuries, United States voters have proven their willingness to accept compromise. Now both sides, entrenched as they are in their ideological views, appear to have concluded that compromise has failed.
Voters could’ve prevented many of our Nation’s current problems if they had abided the words of Thomas Jefferson:
“Where the principle of difference [between political parties] is as substantial and as strongly pronounced as between the republicans and the monocrats of our country, I hold it as honorable to take a firm and decided part and as immoral to pursue a middle line, as between the parties of honest men and rogues, into which every country is divided.” — Thomas Jefferson to William Branch Giles, 1795
Unfortunately, voters are now at a point where it’s difficult to discern who the rogues are. It’s got to make you wonder what the benefit to society has been of the trillions of dollars spent on education and the media?
The New York Post has reported that the rank and file membership of the American Federation of Teachers is demanding the withdrawal of the AFT’s executive board’s unilateral decision to endorse Hillary Clinton.
Union head Randi Weingarten is a longtime Clinton ally. Randi was instrumental in marshaling the board’s decision to endorse Clinton despite a request by the AFL-CIO to wait until the Democratic presidential field is more defined.
How much of your tax dollars did Hillary commit to Ms. Weingarten in order to secure her efforts?
One additional question; Shouldn’t we be bothered by our children’s teachers’ only reason for requesting the delay is because they want to see if Bernie Sanders turns out to be the better candidate? It seems the only interest the AFT has is how quickly they can grow the federal government so that it can fund their Marxist teachings.
Think I’m being too harsh? They have zero interest in considering Ted Cruz of whom Allan Dershowitz said:
“He was always very active in class, presenting a libertarian point of view. He didn’t strike me as a social conservative, more of a libertarian.”
“He had brilliant insights and he was clearly among the top students, as revealed by his class responses.”
Bloomberg Business is touting Goldman Sachs C.E.O. Lloyd Blankfein’s ascendancy to billionaire status. No mention of the details about how he amassed this sum.
Goldman has enormous influence over government policy. This became evident after ex-Goldman Sachs co-chairman Hank Paulson became George W. Bush’s Treasury Secretary. When the manufactured financial crisis hit at the end of Bush’s presidency they both sold us that certain mega-corporations were “Too big to fail.”
Using Goldman’s political influence, Blankfein positioned Goldman as the go-to bank for mega-corporations seeking to leverage that influence into legislative gains that they would be the first to capitalize on. Goldman receives enormous financial compensation from only those large corporations that can afford it. Don Corleone would be jealous.
Subsequently, after their electoral victories in 2008, the Democratic Party held the presidency and had majorities in both houses of Congress sufficient to override the Republicans that they used to pass the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was passed. This has all but destroyed the Nation’s small business sector by defining for posterity two separate classes of business. Goldman, of course, sees small businesses in the same way that large corporations and Democrats do; pesky little nuisances that encumber the growth of their businesses.
The crop of Goldman executives that rose to the highest levels of political power has proven to be dishonest men of major proportion. Remember former NJ Governor and Senator Jon Corzine who became head of MF Global after leaving public office? Corzine is yet to answer the question what happened to MF Global’s investors’ $2Billion?
Anyone who watched CNBC’s Delivering Alpha Conference witnessed Ted Cruz sidestepping the media in a fashion similar to another right wing radical they hated. His name was Ronald Reagan.
Reagan, who went to tiny Eureka College, once joked to a class of Harvard students has wondered what he might have become if had a Harvard education. Well now we know.
Cruz schooled a packed room of Wall Streeters in sound economic principles consistent with a nation of free men, and let them know he would not be their lackey if he were to become president. The foundation of his message to them was mega banks and mega corporations were not going to would not be central to his recovery plans.
Talk about walking into the lion’s den.
This week, Kansas City mayor Mark Holland boasted in an address before the radical socialist organization National Council of La Raza that his city is no longer predominantly white. That’s an accomplishment of…what?
For those who believe that reprogramming of political dissenters can’t happen here, consider the liberal NYC judge Richard Berman who sentenced Dinesh D’Souza to psychological counseling this past Monday. It appears that D’Souza whose writings appeared in National Review among other places disliked Obama just a little too much .
Atlanta NAACP President Richard Rose has called for sand blasting Lee, Jefferson Davis and Jackson off of Stone Mountain. The three represent a part of the South’s history that Rose and his followers find deplorable. So much so that they want to follow in the steps of Nazi book-burners in eradicating them from history. In the interest of compromise perhaps we can all find a way to benefit from erasing all semblances of discrimination from our society. I’ll start by calling for the end of all affirmative action programs, and racial set asides and quotas.
Of course, Rose doesn’t care a bit about Stone Mountain. It’s just a way of rallying that ignorant portion of the Democrat voting base that they’ll need energized when the election rolls around.
The Telegraph’s Richard Spencer and Robert Tait are reporting a new united front between Israel and Saudi Arabia. The U.S. allies feel threatened by Obama’s policy of appeasement in granting Iran a path to develop their capability to deliver a nuclear bomb. Worse, they feel betrayed. Arabs and Jews, both, are asking WTF is with Hussein Obama?
There’s no depth to which Planned Parenthood won’t lower itself. As reported in the Washington Post, an undercover video shows an official at Planned Parenthood detailing how to abort a baby so that it’s organs can be saved and sold for scientific experimentation.
That should come as no surprise since it was founded eugenicist Margaret Sanger. Here are some of her defining thoughts:
“[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.” – Woman and the New Race, ch. 6: “The Wickedness of Creating Large Families.”
“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” – Woman, Morality, and Birth Control. New York: New York Publishing Company, 1922. Page 12.
There’s enough of this sickening dialogue to fill a book. In fact, Sanger filled at least ten books with her hatred of “inferior” races and her twisted justification for using abortion and sterilization as a means to eradicating them.
This is what Planned Parenthood is about. This is who liberals are. Given a choice between saving blacks or preserving abortion rights they would kneel at their altar – the altar of abortion.
