America Needs George Washington Today

March 5, 2015

America Needs George Washington Today!

I Have read the book, The Real George Washington, by Jay Parry and Andrew Allison.  Glenn Beck showcased this book in this 2010 show. I can assure you this topic is even more relevant today than it was then.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. The book is an example of wonderful scholarship. Its authors let the account of Washington’s life show through his own words and the accounts of others who personally knew George Washington.

You may inspect the book here:

http://www.amazon.com/dp/0880800143/?tag=mh0b-20&hvadid=4963986085&ref=pd_sl_4zin09b7ue_e

I beg your patience with the video I present below. It is nearly 40 minutes long. Also, at the start, Beck gets pretty emotional a couple of times. Maybe I have watched too many John Wayne movies. Additionally, the video images are slightly fuzzed, particularly in the beginning, though the images seem to get better as the video progresses. Please do not let these things deter you.

It is a marvelous presentation of  some of America’s formative years and its first incomparable leader and President. If time is an issue, perhaps you can watch this video in several segments. It is well worth your time and effort to do so.

I hope you will obtain and read this book. I will bet that you will never think of George Washington and the Founding of this great Constitutional Republic in the way you once did.

Do not be put-off by the following amazingly long URL, it will work.

Netanyahu’s Warning To America

March 4, 2015

Netanyahu’s Warning To America

Bibi Netanyahu has spoken to America’s Congress in spite of Obama’s vitriolic objections and the hostility shown him by our Democratic party.  Democratic Leader Nancy Polosi actually turned her back to Netanyahu during Congressional periods of applause for his statements.

Virtually everything that President Obama and America’s progressive/socialist Democratic party has done during their last two terms has added to America’s precipitous decline, made the world a more dangerous place (actually favoring Islamic Terrorists) and finally deepening  our distrust of the lying, cheating Obama Government.

Netanyahu was respectful of the Obama Administration, even solicitous at the beginning of his speech. However, he then presented a devastating historical and contemporary analysis of Iran’s Radical Islamic faith-driven terrorist activities that are now rapidly advancing in the world: “Death, Tyranny and he pursuit of Jihad”.

He courageously warned all of us about the Obama Administration negotiating a deal with Iran, and I paraphrase, that will not prevent nuclear weapons for Iran, but will guarantee them.

Netanyahu further stated that if Radical Islamic Terrorist Iran gets the nuclear bomb, they will use it to subjugate the world. Furthermore, If Iran becomes a nuclear war power it will spark a nuclear weapons race in the Middle East, precipitating a devastating world war.

It is my view that Radical Islam is already conducting a world war, but if they gain nuclear weapons, the world devastation will reach horrific proportions.

In short:

  • It is foolish to trust Radical Terrorist Jihadist Islam.
  • Obama’s deal with Iran will leave it with well-over 1000 high-speed centrifuges capable of producing nuclear bombs within weeks.
  • Obama’s deal with Iran does not include Iran’s advancing Intercontinental Missile Program that will provide this Islamic Terrorist Country the ability to strike anywhere in America with nuclear bombs.
  • Obama’s deal with Iran terminates within about ten years, leaving Iran with the nuclear weapons power to wreak unthinkable destruction and terror on the world.

President Obama is in the process of perpetrating the ultimate betrayal of America and Israel in favor of Radical Terrorist Islam. There have been other betrayals, but this one will be the world’s coup de grace.

It is essential you to see and hear Bibi Netanyahu’s address to America about implications of a Terrorist Islamic Iran with nuclear weapons.

To avoid boredom, start the video and then advance the small blue ball on the white video trail to 23:30 (unless you enjoy watching politicians glad handing each other).

The next few minutes feature Netanyahu’s gratuitous, complements to the Obama Administration.

Starting at 28:00 are Netanyahu’s dire warnings to all of America about Obama’s suicidal (my word) deal with Iran.

Please view this video and then demand that your representatives “rise-up” in OUR defense against a nuclear Islamic Terrorist Iran.

America’s 21dst. Century Founding Father!

March 1, 2015

America’s 21st. Century Founding Father!

Dear Friends,

In spite of my political fears about our then new President Obama, I had hoped he would make America proud as our first African-American President. Thus proclaiming to all “race-baiters”, our liberal media and the world…just what his Presidency had confirmed: It is a nasty myth that modern America is a racist nation.

Obama’s election to our Presidency proved that America is not a racist nation. Of course there is a minority who dislike, or even hate, because of the ethnicity of others. While this is an ugly fact, who can identify a place in the world where this is not true?

I think that the most important question about this matter is: Can we find  any other predominantly white nation that has ever elected a black leader?

President Obama has failed to bring lasting pride to America and he has failed miserably in his role as President of the United States. To understand this, one must know understand our history, our founding values and morals, and they must be willing to admit that America has fallen into a precipitous decline because we have failed to transmit these essential features to our citizens. 

President Obama has simply accelerated our steady decline because of his dishonest and deceitful character and because of his anti-American actions.

He has not failed because of his race!

America has a chance to do it right this time. I wish we could once again elect a black American to our Presidency. This would be a good thing to do.

But, this time let it be someone who reflects America’s traditional values from their core!

Sadly, I worry that our political system is now so corrupted that a “common man or woman”…a true patriot who bravely speaks the truth to liars, can no longer win the Presidency.

I fear that without some catastrophic event that resets our civil and political ethos and brings us crawling back to our Founding Principles we have lost Constitutional Republic. And as a result, our political leaders will continue to be the puppets of clandestine special interests, “royal” oligarchic families (i.e., Bush/Clinton), domestic and foreign big money, and socialist/communist/Islamic political insurgents.

I dearly hope I am wrong about these last concerns.

I will now beg you to take a few minutes to think about the words, accomplishments, and personal goals of a true American patriot…a wonderful candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America.

The History of Thomas Jefferson: America’s 3rd President

February 27, 2015

The History of Thomas Jefferson: America’s 3rd President

Watching the “street interviews” with college students and average citizens that are now popular on our entertainment media, it is clear that America has failed to teach its own history to its children and youth..for a very long time. These spectacles  masquerade as humorous entertainment, when they actually represent a modern tragedy.

I have therefore decided to focus a series of blogs on the history of some of our most important Founding Father’s. These will be the men who, in this nation’s beginning, shaped the laws and political practices that were enshrined in the Constitution of the United States.

I can assure you that I am painfully aware that the ruling force of this document and its intended purposes have been badly damaged by unremitting “progressive” practices, shortly following the birth of this great nation.It should be plain to see that the cumulative effects of this political decay are nothing short of disastrous to our modern socioculture.

This is particularly the case as we face Radical Islamic Terrorism, the most enduring evil the world has ever known.

If America fails to see its own great need for a religious and political rapprochement with its historical traditions, it will further complete the sad caricature of its once incomparable self that it now represents.

I hope this series of short American history lessons can be a positive contribution to one of  the saddest remedial imperatives of all time.

We will begin with President Thomas Jefferson, who directed the first American war against  Islamic Terrorism and soundly defeated them.

Please refresh your memory about this great American and then send the lesson on to everyone you know and love.

Thomas Jefferson’s Solution To Islamic Terrorists

February 25, 2015

Thomas Jefferson’s Solution To Islamic Terrorists

It has been my pleasure to study the life and extraordinary accomplishments of one of America’s greatest historical figures.

Thomas Jefferson was was one of our Founding Fathers and was also the third,  highly consequential, President of our United States of America.

The following article contains factual information that I have encountered in other historical contexts. Unless you have studied the life and times of Thomas Jefferson, you might be astonished to learn that he successfully confronted and defeated the perennial evils of Islamic terrorism in his time.

The following is the true story of how Thomas Jefferson’s courageous leadership helped  America win its war with Islamic Terrorism that raged from 1805 to 1815.

Modern America must now do the same or Radical Islam will finally prevail in their never-ending blood-soaked quest to violently transform and subjugate the world.

I hope you will take time to read this important piece of American history.

Behavioral Pornographic Contagion: Teenagers

February 24, 2015

Behavioral Pornographic Contagion: Teenagers.

There were once laws against the production of pornography and its distribution in America. This activity was labeled a “vice”. Synonyms for the word vice are: immorality, wrongdoing, wickedness, badness, evil, iniquity, villainy, corruption, misconduct, misdeeds, sin, sinfulness, ungodliness, depravity, degeneracy, dissolution, dissipation, debauchery, decadence, lechery, perversion, crime, turpitude.

These laws were overturned during the 1960’s and were, along with the judgmental words presented above,  fading from existance by the end of the 1970’s.

To be honest, my teen buddies and I would have loved to obtain the explicitly florid and often weird categories of pornography that are now available for free…and just a few clicks away for anyone who “knows how to click”. This, of course,  is exactly why is was once outlawed and described in such condemning (now politically incorrect) terms.

Children have become better at media searches than a great many of their elders. The influences of pornography upon their thinking and actions are now plain to see to anyone who cares to pay attention.

America protected its children and all of its citizens in the 1950’s (and before) from the cultural damages that have been inflicted upon all of us by the legalization and wide-spread distribution of pornography. This form of bad behavioral contagion has catalyzed a host of maladaptive sexual outcomes for children, adults, and families.

If you accept this as true, you must also accept that these results have damaged America’s socioculture at large.

Call me an old fogey if you like, but much more than nostalgia, or bias, has influenced by judgement about this issue. Psychology’s laws and principles have predicted these social outcomes of the legalization of pornography and the subsequent pornofication of our culture.

I am forced, by the evidence, to conclude that America’s earlier generations were fortunate to have been protected from the long-term saturation effects of pornography.

This blog is designed to inform you about why I believe objective evidence supports my conclusion.

Unfortunately, even a single cultural change that has damaged American society cannot be explained in a few sentences. I hope you will spend the time necessary to see why too much freedom, in the form of pornography,  has lead to the sexual chaos that is now damaging America.

The first article below is a blog that I posted about my research findings on the effects of pornography on individuals. This information will help you to see the “big picture” regarding a second recent  news story about kids swapping nude images of themselves and others (“sexting”) on their social media.

Destroying The greatest Nation On Earth

February 23, 2015

Destroying The Greatest Nation On Earth

Under the Obama Administration’s policies we are destroying the greatest nation on earth. America!

A good friend of mine recently sent me “a copy” of a short speech that Vladimir Putin allegedly gave to the Russian Parliament.

The the first truth is that I do not know if this event and its quotations ever happened.

The second truth is that it sure as hell should have happened in Russia an all of the other countries that are now suffering terrorist and stealth jihad attacks of Radical Islam.

If we can survive two more years, it is essential that America’s next President say and do exactly as portrayed in the following words. No matter the truth of their origin.

Thanks to Joe Grunert for sending me the following words of wisdom.

__________________________________________________________

Subject: Vladimir Putin on Muslims

“This is one time our elected leaders should pay
attention to the advice of Vladimir Putin.”

“I would suggest that not only our leaders, but every citizen of USA should pay attention to this advice. How scary is that?”

“It is a sad day when a Communist Leader makes more sense than our LEADERS here in the U.S.A., but here it is!”

“Vladimir Putin’s speech (THE SHORTEST SPEECH EVER).”

“On August 04, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament). The speech was about the tensions with minorities in Russia:”

The following is the putative quote by President Putin:

In Russia , live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, it should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws.

If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslim’s then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the State law.

Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’.

We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture.

We better learn from the suicides of America, England , Holland and
France, if we are to survive as a nation. The Muslims are taking over those
countries and they will not take over Russia. The Russian customs and traditions
are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law
and Muslims.

When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first.

_____________________________________________________

End of supposed Putin quote.

About this speech, it was further reported that:

“The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five-minute standing ovation. If you keep this to yourself, you are part of the problem”!

Now, from my perspective, if we Americans keep this reported thought-pattern to ourselves, then we are indeed part of the problem! We are a part of America’s Undoing!

Black America Damaged By Liberal Politics

February 21, 2015

Black America Damaged By Liberal Politics.

Jason L. Riley has written a book that takes progressive/liberal policies to task for wreaking havoc upon America’s Black population. The book is entitled: Please Stop Helping Us: How Liberals Make It Harder For Blacks.

This is a book that all of America must read.

Mr. Riley, a black man, has recently given an important address at Hillsdale College. This address has been adapted and published by Hillsdale’s own Imprimis Press.

The title of this presentation relates to race and law-enforcement relations. However, it is a far more encompassing treatment of the decline of Black America, and more.

I urge you to take time to read this definitive article about the damages of liberal politics.

Once you have read it, can you also see that the same liberal politics that have badly damaged America’s Black population, have also damaged all Americans. Can you see that these political policies (destructive reward systems) have therefore lead the ongoing decline in our entire socioculture?

Can you see that the motivation for these damaging liberal social policies is not exclusively a product of “liberal guilt” about America’s historical treatment of its black populations, as suggested by Mr. Riley. Many, myself included, have long argued that liberal politicians have used various entitlements and favors to minority populations as a well-known method of securing their votes and extending their own political power.

I will not absolve pandering liberal politicians of their ethical shortcomings by invoking some mythical sense of “misguided guilt”.

http://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/race-relations-and-law-enforcement/?utm_campaign=Imprimis&utm_content=January%20Imprimis&utm_source=email

I hope you will send this Imprimis article on to your friends. Please consider also including your liberal friends, as well.

V. Thomas Mawhinney, 2/21/15

P.S., Thanks to John Plume for sending me notification of this article.  I also thank him for stimulating me to make time to read this Imprimis article, already languishing in my “read soon”stack of literature.

Radical Islam’s Most Powerful Weapon: Stealth Jihad

February 20, 2015

Radical Islam’s Most Powerful Weapon: Stealth Jihad

I continue to read extensively on the topic of cultural decline.

There are a great many ways in which cultures are weakened and eventually lose their vitality and ability to function at adaptive levels.

It is thought that modern historically successful cultures do not collapse, as countless primitive ones have done.

Rather, they are taken-over by other cultures. That is to say that the culture’s mores, folkways, practices, and behavioral traditions change to the extent that its original cultural features are greatly diminished and supplanted by new ones. Although the geographical location of the original culture may not change, it can be “transformed” by powerful biopsychsocial/environmental forces to the point that it is no longer what it once was.

Of course, determining the quality of such transformations is a human value judgment. For example, Germany, Japan, and Italy were transformed by the occurrence of WWII and I will bet that most folks (in spite of the terrible loss of human life) would judge that these transformations were highly desirable.  In short, fanatical, despotic, totalitarian cultures of death and enslavement were “transformed” by war into cultures of peace and prosperity.

Radical, political, terrorist Islam is now attempting to transform Western Civilization from cultures of peace and relative prosperity into ones of fanatical, despotic, totalitarian, death and enslavement. Outside of the radical Islamic terrorists, few would argue that this is a good thing.

History is repeating itself.

Terrorism and military conquest is the most obvious strategy employed by Radical political Islam. But this not the most threatening or destructive method in their arsenal (notwithstanding the development of nuclear weapons, God forbid).

Radical Islam is far more diabolical, and clever than were the opponents of freedom in WWII.

Radical Islam is steadily infiltrating the cultures they intend to transform into a Radical Islamic  political Caliphate, living under the dictates of sharia (religious) law. The openly admit that this is their goal and they proudly proclaim their advances.

Currently, I believe the greatest threat to Western Civilization and the rest of the world is Stealth Jihad.

Stealth Jihad involves the slow transformation of cultures by Islamic immigration and the infiltration and the Islamic influence (transformation) of a culture’s institutions and agencies (government, education, law, etc.). This process is now well underway and progressing steadily in America and the rest of the world.

Many countries have been rudely awakened to the methods of stealth jihad within their borders and now appear paralyzed by their own liberal policies to combat it.

To understand the methods and accomplishments of this strategy, I recommend the reading of Stealth Jihad: How Radical Islam Is Subverting America Without Guns or Bombs, by Robert Spencer.

But there is more. Perhaps I missed it in reading Spencer’s book, but recall and cannot find reference to Radical Islamic “reproduction”, “fecundity”, “propagation”, or “birth rates” in his index section.

Perhaps this is because it is “common knowledge” that Islam and family planning are not incompatible. Furthermore, there is a wealth of demographic research finding that Islamic birth rates are declining and when Muslims enter a developed country that their reproductive rates further decline to about that of the rest of the population in around two years. The over-all  reproductive rate of Muslims in the world is reported to be declining and some authors believe it will lead to an existential crisis for Islam.

The following authoritative article is a prime example.

http://www.prb.org/Publications/Articles/2008/muslimsineurope.aspx

This also jives with my readings from many other resources.

Generally population reproduction rates are strongly correlated with modernity. It is thought that children become more of an expense and a liability in modernizing cultures and so the cost/benefit ratio shift against propagation.

Also correlated with modernity is a reduction of the influence of religion. Analysts of cultural decline speculate that when a cultures lose their religions, they also lose important reasons to reproduce.

While all of this appears to be true,  I remain concerned that statistics on generally identified “Muslim”, or “Islamic” immigrants obscures the actual reproductive rates of the subset class of Radical Islamic immigrants.

It is entirely possible that the highly motivated religious culture of Radical Islam is an exception to the previously discussed accepted trends.

Radical Islam is powerfully motivated by its most stringent and demanding political religion to infiltrate and forcefully transform other cultures. Out-reproducing an infidel culture is a certain way to further this goal. Moreover, out-reproducing modernized populations would seem to be an easily attainable goal given Radical Islam’s mandated subjugation of its women, polygamy, and its fierce indoctrination of its children into its evil and murderous belief systems.

Detecting such a growth pattern will be difficult because of the unresolved definitional complexities involved. Small, but continuous population shifts from non-radical to radical Islamic populations will challenge statistical detection.

An undetected growth in Radical Islamic populations (for any reason) in a liberal democracy will have very damaging transformational cultural effects.

Radical Political Islam is completely antithetical to liberal democracies. The rise of Radical Political Islam inevitably means the decline of liberty.

Of course, these results would be greatly amplified if they were aided by the culture’s own government, as is now the case in America with its current Obama administration.

America’s country of origin has long been doing the same thing to itself, with predictable results.

See for your self!
