What A Coward

President Obama recently dismissed military aid to the Ukraine as his Ambassador to the U.N. read Russia the riot act. As per usual, the White House and it's appendages have no idea what is going on with each other. So much for the left's vaunted intellectualism. Our President, and I cannot express just how sickening it is to admit that he is such, obfuscates, lies, colludes with terrorists, and uses the organs of government to attack his political enemies. How is he any different than Richard Nixon? Oh wait, that's right, nobody died in Watergate. Stupid me.

Is it any wonder than Putin sees Obama as little more than a clown? To be honest, the rodeo clown doing a skit as Obama was more official. I wish that there were something worse to call him, other than a coward. By abandoning the Ukraine, President Obama has given the green light for Putin to do as he wills. Vladimir Putin is ex-KGB. He knows what they did during the Soviet years. He even had a hand in some of it. God only knows what he is going to with the license that was just granted by Obama. Frankly, I don't even believe that Obama gives a rat's furry hind end for the people of the Ukraine or the dead aboard the shot down aircraft. Christ, he went to New York for a fundraiser when he heard the news. This isn't the first time he's been asleep at the wheel either. During the Benghazi attack, he went to bed while American's were dying in the desert of Libya, one of them was his own Ambassador.

And congratulations America, you were the dumbass that gave him the job. Great going, just perfect non compos mentis. Perhaps in two years, sanity will return to the electorate and we will be able to replace this jackass with somebody who is actually qualified for the job and is in possession of a spine.

America - Imagine A World Without Her

Dinesh D'Souza created a film that attempts to address the charges of the left against the USA. He examines the charges leveled by the left and then he addresses those charges with the facts. By the time that the movie ends, you leave the feeling with a sense of pride about the United States of America. The film opens with a scene from the Revolutionary War. We see the troops straightening and saluting George Washington as he passes through their camp. The battle line is formed, and the men begin to march with General Washington astride his horse. Then shots ring out and the battle is joined, the men break into a charge and suddenly, Washington goes down to a sniper's bullet.

There is no doubt that the personality of Washington was responsible for driving the Revolutionary War. His example and leadership is what held that rag tag army together. But George Washington was no leader of state at the time, and he most certainly only had tepid support from the legislatures during the war. In fact, there were several attempts to replace him and some of those attempts found a home in some of his fellow General officers. But if Washington was steadfast in anything, he was steadfast in his commitment to freedom. Had Washington died on any of the many battlefields that he traversed during the war, there can be no doubt that the America we know today would not exist. That is why we call him the father of our nation.

We no longer teach students in the public schools to be proud of their home anymore. In fact, Washington himself has been excised in large part by school textbooks. We teach them that America is flawed and that those flaws run to the very foundations of our home. In colleges and universities, they tell their students why America is flawed and lead them to socialism and Marxism as the solutions to these flaws. They advocate fundamental change, and say that America must be destroyed in order to be cured of her Capitalist disease. In short, they fill our children's minds with rubbish.

This is why parents choose to educate their own children, this is why they demand vouchers so that they can remove their children from these faulty schools. This is also why the left fights tooth and nail to keep them there. The left does love it's indoctrination programs, but when they cannot indoctrinate, they do not hesitate to use force. Bill Ayers, a Professor at the University of Illinois, once advocated the murder of twenty-five million Americans because he believed that they would not accept indoctrination. His wife, Bernadine Dohrn, was even more bloodthirsty. Today Mr. Ayers is allowed to spread his rabid ideology to our children. Exactly why the University would allow him to pour poison into the ears of the young, I do not know. Yet he is presented as the right model of the world, and George Washington is reviled. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction.

Frankly, these are the people who are telling our children that the U.S. is a cesspool of violence and caprice. If that isn't the pot calling the kettle black, then I don't know what is. America is not perfect. Just as there is no nation that is perfect. Nothing created by man can be perfect. We have made mistakes and we have done some questionable things, but does that mean that we can have no pride in our home? Does it mean that we are worse than all other nations? Does it mean that our people are not exceptional? It does not. Even today, America does more for the world than all other nations combined.

Our founding signaled something new in the world. In five thousand years of recorded human history, there has never been anything quite like it. The founders of this nation were educated men who picked and chose that which was best in Western society and created a nation where the individual is supreme. Where opportunity and business could thrive. But the steady march toward socialism is dimming the dream. Margaret Thatcher said that socialism was a wonderful thing, until you ran out of other people's money. When you do, you end up like Portugal, Ireland, Greece, and Spain. Britain, France, and the Scandinavian countries are a close second.

Dinesh D'Souza pulls no punches in his examination of right and left. The arguments of the left are heard in their own voices. I cannot say that I enjoyed hearing from Ward Churchill in the film, but it was instructive. His answer to Mr. D'Souza's question about bombing America was also instructive. I have been watching the left in this country for forty years. They have not changed. It is a certainty that their methods have changed, but they are the same people that they were in the 1960's.

Through multiculturalism, post modernism, and Marxism they have managed to cause a cultural change in the United States of America. They have infiltrated Hollywood, the News, literature, and television. Today, America swims in leftist propaganda, and many don't even realize it. The film does not address any of these issues, but that is not it's purpose. The intent of the film is to define what, if anything, is good about America. Mr. D'Souza does a fine job of answering that question.

The left will leave this film with a foul taste in their mouth, but that is to be expected. I left the theatre with a spring in my step. If you are having doubts about America or wish that you could see a film that presents the United States in a fair and balanced approach, then I highly recommend this film. I also advise you to note the demographics of the audience. My experience showed that the vast majority of the audience was over the age of fifty. It is an excellent movie to take your family to see, and should provide a good  discussion after viewing about the points made.

Weaponizing the Government for Fun and Profit

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is declaring that it has the right to garnish wages due to Fox News. It also says that it doesn't need a court order to do so. With the IRS being used to shut down dissent, leaving four Americans to die in the sands of Libya, and our veterans dying while awaiting medical treatment, how much do you want to bet that the EPA will now move to the fore to hammer conservatives now that the IRS has been hobbled? All they need do is to trump up some ridiculous charges, impose massive fines, and then garnish your wages if you happen to disagree with the President or the Democrats.
fees owed, according to

Before you dismiss that, the EPA has gone off of the reservation before. Remember what the last EPA chief under Obama did? Lisa Jackson used an off the books email account under a false name to hide communications from public scrutiny. In fact, she even listed the account under one Richard Windsor. She wasn't the only one, several EPA administrators had alias accounts, and that wasn't the first time that the EPA has been caught red handed. The author of the book “The Liberal War on Transparency," Chris Horner, was being interviewed by The DC News Foundation and said, "You remember Ms. Browner, the lady who suddenly ordered her computer hard drive reformatted and backup tapes erased, hours after a federal court issued a ‘preserve’ order … that her lawyers at the Clinton Justice Department insisted they hadn’t yet told her about it."

Now where have we heard that before? Oh yes, the IRS and their computer "problems." Looks like Lois Lerner had a similar "malfunction." Isn't it funny how when people start looking for evidence, it just disappears all of a sudden? Isn't it funny, that the Federal government gets caught with it's hand in the cookie jar over and over again and nobody does a damned thing about it. There is no more integrity in our Federal government than you would expect to find at a second rate used car dealer.

Yet, the EPA believes itself to be so mighty that they can deprive you of your property without consulting a court of law first. Yup, no way that can go bad. I wonder if that was the last thing that Ambassador Chris Stevens was thinking when he died waiting for help that never came as President Obama lay in bed snoozing? But that was the price of that darned ol' video, as Secretary Clinton said at around 10:30 pm on the night of the attack. But that was a flat out lie.

Hillary couldn't let the blame fall on her office now could she? The President was in the middle of campaigning, and couldn't be bothered to save American lives either. So they had to have their very own "get out of jail free" card. So they, or she, cooked up the "disgusting video" lie and sold it to the American people to hide their own incompetence. The media sold it hook, line, and sinker to the American people and everybody got all charged up about that video. The United States of America even ran commercials in Pakistan to apologize for that disturbing video. The numbers on YouTube rose, as intended, and you have the scapegoat all prepared. They guy who made that video is still in prison as a political prisoner of the Obama administration.

Now we have the EPA, little known for sanity in this day and age, declaring the power to take your wages and the courts be damned. This is not a fault of the American system or even the Federal government. It is the fault of the left, who constantly overreach and suppress dissent as a matter of course. They scheme behind closed doors on the use of code words to hide their wrongdoing, and use public monies to push their own world view down the people's throats. They ignore court orders, and destroy evidence with wild abandon when somebody smells a rat, and they think nothing of using the machinery of the government as a weapon against anyone who disagrees with them.

The EPA is full of these jackasses and they wonder why we bristle when they make such an idiotic proclamation? Never mind that it is also blatantly unconstitutional, these people do not see themselves as public servants. Instead, the see themselves as our masters. They have acquired SWAT teams and automatic weapons and use them to intimidate the American public as their own private Gestapo. Worse, it isn't just one or two agencies that try this crap, it is across the board. From the Bureau of Land Management to the IRS and EPA, it is endemic to our leftist Federal government. In short, it is cultural. It is nothing less than a tangled web of deceptions, lies, and intimidation. Is it any wonder that fascism and the left are so intimately intertwined?

This is why you don't want an all powerful government that solves all of your problems. If you want a government like that, then the USA is not for you and you are too weak for liberty. The American people have traditionally distrusted government and we have been shown the reasons for that distrust time and again by the current administration. Such governments inevitably turn on their people and subjugate them into slavery. They start as benefactors of the common man, they next move on to silence dissent by any means necessary, and ultimately that transitions into placing the yoke of servitude about the neck.

Fortunately, we are still in stage two. There is still time, but it is running out fast. The left leaves a stain wherever it has been. The stain of corruption in government today will take a very long time to cleanse with sunshine and fresh air. But we had better open the blinds and windows quickly.

And these fools now have control of your health care. Wonderful.
