Elections Will Not Save America

October 28, 2014

Elections Will Not Save America

Huckabee does a great job of naming many of the recent cultural and political changes in America that defy “common sense”. He is perfect in his analysis, in my view.  I do not doubt that a moral and spiritual awakening, as well as “a big dose of common sense” is what is needed.

Please see the following.

But, exactly how to achieve these lost American Attributes is the issue.

I believe that in order to achieve a moral and spiritual awakening, America will have to experience some very hard and humbling times. I believe these are on the way as our continuing cultural decline and Wold War III (I’ll call it a continuation of the Crusades) with radical Islam will likely bring great fear and suffering upon us all. With regard to a spiritual awakening, I believe it is “No Pain, No Gain”.

Regarding the  “common sense” issue, the question is: Whose definition of “common sense” is to be used? For “old time” mores and folkways as well as standards of judgment, there will have to be a return of power to local and State governance. There will have to be an end to Judicial and Federal tyranny, usurping the “will of the people” and imposing radical liberal values, standards and rules for behavior on us all. There will have to be an end to wide-spread corruption in the electoral process.

None of these things can be accomplished without important changes in the rules that govern our Constitutional Republic. Progressive politicians and judges have found ways to distort the meaning of important aspects of America’s Constitution and Amendments are required to bolster the true intent of our Founding Fathers and to save the Republic.

Please see my previous post on this very topic for a clear understanding of what must be done.

Obama Is A Muslim: True or False?

October 25, 2014

Obama Is A Muslim: True or False?

The answer to this question has been hotly debated and much information, True and False, abounds.

The facts, and so-called facts, do not prove the case either way in my view.  We are left to evaluate the preponderance of evidence and to decide what the probable answer to this important question is. 

I will put forth two strong videos, one supporting the False argument and one supporting the True argument. Each video presents its own strengths and weaknesses… for example the “True” video is comprised of many of Obama’s out-of-context quotes. The “False” video invalidates some false allegations, however it will not convince many.

In this matter, one must judge the probabilities based upon the evidence available at this time.

In my view, Obama’s pulling all our troops out of Iraq and his plans to pull them out of Afghanistan, with a predictable resurgence of radical Islamic forces is most troubling. Further, his inane responses to Iran’s nuclear threat, the growing ISIS terrorist Islamic State along with their mass slaughter of Infidels, and his lack of support for Israel, is enough to cause me serious concern about his sentiments.

Finally, Obama’s stubborn refusal to admit that increasing murderous attacks by Muslim  individuals ( and recent converts) in America, Canada, and around the world are the work of Islamic terrorists is simply an outrageous. It is a perfect example of his denial of an obvious truth. One that is devoid of any rational explanation other than…Well, maybe you can think of one.

Yes, I have already selected my answer to this quiz question…So now it is your turn.

First is a strong argument for a False answer to this issue. Please select the one by Bill O’Reilly shown below.

Second is a strong presentation in favor of a True answer to this issue.

Perhaps you can suggest more evidence for a True or False answer?

So, “Obama is a Muslim: True or False?”

“Why Americans Believe Things Are Out-Of-Control”: Because They Are!

October 22, 2014

“Why Americans Believe Things Are Out-Of-Control”; Because They Are!

The title is that of a Bill O’Reilly short video analysis of the  socio-political-cultural chaos in America.

I highly recommend that you indulge the very short preceding add in order to gain his spot-on perspective regarding America’s rapidly unraveling condition.

“Could It Possibly Get Any Worse?” You Better Believe It!

October 21, 2014

“Could It Possibly Get Any Worse?” You Better Believe It!

Thanks to Lee Hornack for sending me this article.

I invite you to be thinking about what Roger Simon, the author of this article, may have missed in his listing of things that are part of what could possibly get worse.

For my part, having read about much of recorded history, much could certainly get worse…to levels unimaginable to most folks living in modern America. However, let’s play the game!

To do so, simply list some of the things that have happened under the Obama Administration, and in recent history, that Mr. Simon may have missed. I hope you will make you list and send it to me via my comments section. I will be happy to compile them and publish them in a future blog.

Could It Possibly Get Any Worse?

By Roger Simon
October 15th, 2014

Let’s review:

The stock market is in free fall.

The Islamic State is on the brink of taking Baghdad and Kobani.

The Ebola crisis is spreading and seems on the verge of becoming a pandemic while the CDC is being unmasked as incompetent.

The Iran talks are a charade and everyone expects that country to get the bomb.

Our vaunted college campuses are transfixed by so-called micro-agressions and a supposed rape epidemic while banning the likes of Ayaan Hirsi Ali and George Will (!) from speaking — and they still cost nearly $70,000 a year.

Our putative ally Turkey — you know, those guys who mass murdered the Armenians but never recanted and have a president who thinks democracy is just a pit stop on the way to totalitarianism, but are still “treasured” members of NATO — are not helping the “coalition” but instead bombing the Kurds, virtually the only good guys in the neighborhood.

Donor nations — including the ever popular Qatar — are giving over 5 billion dollars to rebuild Gaza with no discernible penalties for Hamas and virtually no way of preventing the terror organization from rearming (they have already started) and reconstructing their tunnel system under Israel. Meanwhile, the UK, UN, Sweden and nearly everybody else are blaming the Jewish state for practically everything, with anti-Semitism more prevalent almost everywhere than since the 1930s.

Putin has already taken a good swathe of Ukraine, including Crimea, and is licking his chops for the rest of Eastern Europe. The Soviet Union is back and China is on the rise.

Europe is on the verge of recession. Even Germany appears to be stagnating.
The U.S. has its lowest labor participation rate since women went to work. The middle class is consistently losing ground.

Race relations in the U.S. seem to have gone backwards fifty years in the last six, African Americans overwhelmed with victimology and picking on cops before there is any evidence. Critics of the president are constantly accused of racism.

Seventy percent of black children are born out of wedlock.

No one trusts the word of the president because he has lied so frequently about everything from health care to Benghazi.

The highly-politicized attorney general has stepped down with an even worse successor in the wings (Tom Perez).

The U.S. Army is falling apart with only 12 of 37 brigades combat ready. Our Navy is disappearing.

Al Qaeda is NOT on the run. Just the opposite — it’s everywhere. The Taliban are getting Afghanistan back, maybe Pakistan too.

No one knows how many terrorists have already crossed our border, what passports they have and what they are planning to do.

Our prisons have become training camps for jihadists.

And with all this, our secretary of State — who has no scientific expertise whatsoever but does speak mediocre French — thinks “global warming” is our biggest problem.

There’s a lot more. I know I’ve forgotten a ton. The mind simply boggles when trying to recall all of it. (What about Assad and the “red line?” etc., etc.).

Please feel free to add yours at the bottom.

But remember this. It’s not all bad. At least Valerie Jarrett isn’t running for president in 2016….Or is she?

This is the end of Mr. Simon’s article.

I will add a few of my own reasons why things will get worse and invite you to do the same.

Understand that while the current political picture in America is an abomination and while geopolitical events threaten to erupt into world chaos, since around 1960 the quality of America’s citizen’s behavior has been spiraling downward. That is not to say that there are no wonderful people in America…there are indeed: Just not as many as there once were and as many needed to avoid a catastrophic decline. Their proportions are shrinking because America has been damaging increasing proportions of its children for decades…therefore America’s adult population is suffering a loss of quality in its behavior patterns over time.

There is much more that I could list, but I will leave some room for you to add your own reasons why things “Could Possibly Get Worse”.

America is not in a dramatic decline because of outside influences. It is in decline because of the radical liberal/progressive cultural rule changes that we have chosen to implement. These rule changes have been increasingly damaging the quality of our children’s behavior for decades. It is this that has produced today’s feckless and unprincipled leaders who now accelerate America’s tragic decline.

Trust Is Gone: Send This To Friends!

October 16, 2014

…….. by Dennis Prager


I have been broadcasting for 31 years and writing for longer than that. I do not recall ever saying on radio or in print that a president is doing lasting damage to our country. I did not like the presidencies of Jimmy Carter (the last Democrat I voted for) or Bill Clinton. Nor did I care for the compassionate conservatism of George W. Bush. In modern political parlance compassionate is a euphemism for ever-expanding government.
But I have never written or broadcast that our country was being seriously damaged by a president. So it is with great that I write that President Barack Obama has done and continues to do major damage to America .. The only question is whether this can ever be undone.
This is equally true domestically and internationally.
Domestically, his policies have had a grave impact on the American economy.
He has overseen the weakest recovery from a recession in modern American history.
He has mired the country in unprecedented levels of debt: about $6.5 trillion that is 6,500 billion in five years (this after calling his predecessor unpatriotic for adding nearly $5 trillion in eight years (after 9/11).
He has fashioned a country in which more Americans now receive government aid means-tested, let alone non-means-tested than work full-time.
He has no method of paying for this debt other than printing more money thereby surreptitiously taxing everyone through inflation, including the poor he claims to be helping, and cheapening the dollar to the point that some countries are talking about another reserve currency and saddling the next generations with enormous debts.
With his 2,500-page Affordable Care Act he has made it impossible for hundreds of thousands, soon millions, of Americans to keep their individual or employer-sponsored group health insurance; he has stymied American medical innovation with an utterly destructive tax on medical devices; and he has caused hundreds of thousands of workers to lose full-time jobs because of the health-care costs imposed by Obamacare on employers.

His Internal Revenue Service used its unparalleled power to stymie political dissent. No one has been held accountable.
His ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were murdered by terrorists in Benghazi , Libya … No one has been blamed. The only blame the Obama administration has leveled was on a video maker in California who had nothing to do with the assault.
In this presidents White House the buck stops nowhere.
Among presidents in modern American history, he has also been a uniquely divisive force. It began with his forcing Obama care through Congress the only major legislation in American history to be passed with no votes from the opposition party.
Though he has had a unique opportunity to do so, he has not only not helped heal racial tensions, he has exacerbated them. His intrusions into the Trayvon Martin affair (If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon) and into the confrontation between a white police officer and a black Harvard professor (the police acted stupidly) were unwarranted, irresponsible, demagogic, and, most of all, divisive.
He should have been reassuring black Americans that America is in fact the least racist country in the world something he should know as well as anybody, having been raised only by whites and being the first (half) black elected the leader of a white-majority nation.
Instead, he echoed the inflammatory speech of professional race-baiters such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.
He has also divided the country by economic class, using classic Marxist language against the rich and corporate profits.
Regarding America in the world, he has been, if possible, even more damaging. The United States is at its weakest, has fewer allies, and has less military and diplomatic influence than at any time since before World War II.
One wonders if there is a remaining ally nation that trusts him.
And worse, no American enemy fears him. If you are a free movement (the democratic Iranian and Syrian oppositions) or a free country (Israel), you have little or no reason to believe that you have a steadfast ally in the United States .
Even non-democratic allies no longer trust America. Barack Obama has alienated our most important and longest standing Arab allies, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Both the anti-Muslim Brotherhood and the anti-Iran Arab states have lost respect for him.
And his complete withdrawal of American troops from Iraq has left that country with weekly bloodbaths.
Virtually nothing Barack Obama has done has left America or the world better since he became president. Nearly everything he has touched has been made worse.

He did, however, promise before the 2008 election that We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America … That is the one promise he has kept.

What does it take for the American people to WAKE UP?

Send this to your friends – we are losing this country!

Am I A Hate-Monger?

October 14, 2014

Am I A Hate-Monger?

Someone recently read a couple of my blogs and then concluded the following:

“This guy is either so accurate that we should simply hang-the-president (and maybe ALL Democrats) –or he is just a hate-monger, as bad as ISIL?”

It’s hard to know how to answer such a question in a way that would convince any occasional reader of my blog of the purity of my patriotic values and intentions. My experience with many critics of anyone’s positions, on anything, is that a large number of individuals cannot be convinced of anything in conflict with their original beliefs.

Never the less, this is my answer to those who might remotely believe either parts of the preceding quote.

My blog is comprised of themes that build upon each other. If one reads many of them, or has somewhat kept-up, they will come to know what my defining principles and values are. They will then be more likely to get my “big picture”.

I can assure my readers that the central theme of my work is not “hate mongering”. However, I will confess to “hating” all political policies and court-mandated changes to America’s laws and cultural practices that have made this Nation the singular world power of the 20th century…and now represent design changes that are accelerating America’s decline.

There are several things that I believe true of myself and I conscientiously work to align my behaviors with these values and precepts.

I try to live my life by Christian precepts and ideals. “Hate mongering” would be a violation of all of this. But, being painfully truthful as I seek to identify the causes and outcomes of America’s elective and self-inflicted decline would be central to all of them.

I am a patriot in ways that resemble the patriotism of our Founding Fathers. Therefore, anyone who would blatantly attempt to transform America into a socialist/federalist state is my enemy. I do not hate President Obama, though I hate his perfectly consistent actions which I judge are designed (by his own admissions and behavior patterns) to moved America towards an open border, progressive/radical liberal, one-world government, and to destroy our hegemony among the world’s Nation States.

I agree with Charles Krauthammer, that it is a fool’s fantasy to believe that America’s abdication of its role as a world leader will lead to anything other than chaos and nuclear disaster exploding from the resulting power vacuum.

I would not call for President Obama’s death by “hanging” or any other means. I call for his impeachment and removal from office in disgrace. The same goes for any politician, no matter their party, who betrays the intent and values of our Founding Fathers, as clearly documented in our Constitution.

Finally, I am a practicing psychologist who was trained as a behaviorist.
As a behaviorist, I am happy to listen to what people say and what they say they think…until, that is, much of what they say is in conflict with their behavior. Once this happens, I disregard what they say and predict their future actions based only upon their past behavior patterns. When an individual lies to me over and over again, I find it easy to predict their behavior. Their behavior becomes just as easy as if they were scrupulously honest.

I have also spent 36 years studying and teaching the determinants of human behavior and their probable outcomes as a university professor of psychology. Also, based upon almost 40 years of private practice as a psychologist (and 73 years of life’s experiences), when one’s talk does not align with their behavior, my position is: B.S. walks and behavior talks.

In the following blog, I list the rules that socialist/communists use for “Transforming” societies. Please review them and tell me which of these rules/goals you have not seen Obama powerfully facilitate.

Considering more recent events, how do you feel about President Obama’s dismantling our military, purging experienced officers from its ranks and shackling its power in the face of what is now WWIII? A war now growing to world-wide proportions, largely as a result of President Obama’s refusing to take the advise of his top military advisers.

How about Obama’s failure to maintain America’s gains in the Middle East, won only by our bloody sacrifices there? The recent new evidence of his lies about stand-down orders in Benghazi? His refusal to identify clear terrorists attacks in America as what they really are? His order to send 3000 or more of our troops to Ebola infected Africa? His refusing to stop American flights to and from Ebola infected areas of the world? How about his defunct position that Americans have nothing to fear from Ebola infections coming to our Homeland?

Do not listen to what Obama says, watch what he does.

Obama is not stupid and he is not incompetent..he is brilliant. He is, in my studied judgment, an amazingly successful socialist revolutionary as well as an Islamic sympathizer. He is an enemy of America’s own traditional religions, as well as America’s economic and socio-political ways of life.

Evaluate the following and make-up your own mind.

I would abhor to be thought-of as a “hate-monger on a par with ISIL” Yikes!

I love Thoreau and Emerson. One or the other said, and I must paraphrase: To know the true course of a sailing ship, one cannot evaluate its present course; they must enlarge their perspective to see its many tacks. Only then can they see its rumbline pointing straight to its true goal.

I have now published over 1200 blogs. I invite you to sample some of them, back to 2009, when I began this effort. Only then are you likely to understand my true motives.

Climate Change Issues Remain Unresolved

October 6, 2014

Climate Change Issues Remain Unresolved

I have suffered some strong verbal assaults in debate with people about global warming. Even from very close friends.

However, my judgement remains that “climate change” is a fact. The climate has forever been changing.

It seems logical that humans are, to some degree, contributing to these changes.

Unfortunately, scientists have not been able to agree upon the significance of their contributions to climate change and what they mean for the future.

The real world can be fiendishly complex, and science is presently pushed beyond its limits to provide the specific data- based predictions about its intermediate and deferred normally vastly changing weather patterns.

It is common sense to recommend that humanity organize itself to pollute the environment as little as possible. However, I will also recommend that this not be done at the expense of the destruction of America’s economy,  the loss of America’s sovereignty, or the loss of America’s ability to defend itself in its struggle for survival during what is now WWIII.

Of course, I am referring to America’s, and all Western Civilization’s,  life or death struggle with Radical Islam’s Terror-based quest for a World-Wide Caliphate. Many will slow to admit this reality, but they are in for a rude awakening.

The following article will illustrate my position on the matter of climate change. This is the one that I must recommend to you. It is important that you take the time necessary to read this medium-long article in order to be informed on this all-to-emotional, though important issue.

Also, understand that this issue has been co-opted by radical progressives, socialists and communists in order to gain greater power in their quest to “Transform America” into their own consistently failed utopian fantasies.

This last matter is the subject of the second shorter, clearly illustrated article documenting the dissident’s transparent  revolutionary strategies…straight out of the socialist/communist playbooks.

If you cannot find time to read the first article please be sure to evaluate the second one.

Governmental Lying Traitors Say, “Work Place Violence”

October 2, 2014

Governmental Lying Traitors Say, “Work Place Violence”

O.K. folks!

Those who will believe this will believe anything.

Vote the lying traitorous bastards out of office!  Those so-called “progressives” who are trying to get away with  Nazi, USSR, China, Korea-like rank propaganda in America.

Work-Place Violence my — (deleted by author).

See for yourself!

And, of course, all of the Islamic Terrorist violence does not occur in the “work-place”.

Check out the rest of the truth that is being downplayed by the propagandistic liberal media and the Obama Administration.

We had better understand that it is going to get worse.
