Obama’s new America

July 19, 2015

Administration amasses unprecedented racial data to aid in altering America

In an account of social engineering that could easily be considered Orwellian, the New York Post reports on the Obama administration’s obsessive data-collecting practices separating Americans by race, with the intent to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites.

Author Paul Sperry reveals, “Obama is presiding over the largest consolidation of personal data in U.S. history,” adding, “he is creating a diversity police state where government race cops and civil-rights lawyers will micromanage demographic outcomes in virtually every aspect of society. Punishment will be meted out to entities that don’t comply with reforms.

Barack Obama’s ultimate plan for destabilizing America along racial and ethnic lines is even more insidious.

We have already witnessed the flood of illegal, impoverished and uneducated Hispanics from Mexico and Central America Obama has relocated across the nation. He is also committed to ensuring chaos reigns in the United States and whites, Christians and Republicans become permanent minorities, as he opens the floodgates to more unassimilating fanatical Muslims who openly express hatred of our freedoms and way of life, and engage in murderous rampages. Army psychiatrist Maj.  Malik Hasan, the Tsarnaev brothers, and days ago, Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez who all massacred Americans in the name of Allah, are just a few examples. There are myriad others, including the September 11, 2001 terrorists who methodically planned and carried out the unimaginable slaughter of 3,000 people on American soil.

Pay attention. As evidenced in recent polling of U.S. Muslims, nearly a third of Muslim males under 45 believe that violence against America is justified in order to make Sharia the law of the land.

Truth Revolt carries the well-documented report that includes the shocking survey conducted by Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy. Ignore it at your own peril.

America’s first black president, twice-elected by Americans of all races, is doing more to divide us along ethnic lines and subvert Constitutional freedoms than any of us could possibly have envisioned in 2008.  As his second term is concluding, Barack Obama is fast-tracking his new American vision. It doesn’t include most of us.


“Marriage equality”: The ongoing saga

July 2, 2015

SCOTUS’ redefinition of marriage: The can of worms has been opened

The Billings Gazette reports that a Montana man and his two wives have applied for a marriage license.

Claiming the Supreme Court’s decision redefining marriage allows for polygamy, Nathan Collier and his wives Victoria and Christine applied at the Yellowstone County Courthouse in Billings on Tuesday in an attempt to legitimize their polygamous marriage.

Collier, 46, said last week’s landmark ruling on same-sex unions inspired him to legitimize his marriage to his second wife. The trio has seven children of their own and from previous relationships

Montana, like all 50 states, outlaws bigamy. Collier said he plans to sue if the application is denied. “It’s about marriage equality,” Collier said. “You can’t have this without polygamy.

Yellowstone County clerk officials initially denied his application, and then said they would consult with the county attorney’s office before giving him a final answer, Collier said.

The county attorney’s civil division chief, Kevin Gillen, said he is reviewing Montana’s bigamy laws and expects to send a formal response to Collier by next week. “I think he deserves an answer,” Gillen said, but added his review is finding that “the law simply doesn’t provide for that yet.”

“Yet”?

The Supreme Court’s ruling on Friday made same-sex marriages legal nationwide. In his dissent Chief Justice John Roberts said people in polygamous relationships could make the same legal argument that not having the opportunity to marry disrespects and subordinates them.

In this instance, Roberts was right.


SCOTUS redefines marriage

June 26, 2015

Marriage no longer a union of one man and one woman

Our Founders didn’t realize it when they wrote the Constitution and Bill of Rights, but they guaranteed same-sex couples the “fundamental right” to marry.

In a  5-4 ruling in Obergefell v Hodges, the United States Supreme Court discovered the right of same-sex couples to marry falls under equal protection clause of 14th amendment.

Justice Antonin Scalia ridiculed his colleague Anthony Kennedy’s swing-vote interpretation, writing, “The opinion is couched in a style that is as pretentious as its content is egotistic. Of course the opinion’s showy profundities are often profoundly incoherent.”

Two years ago, Justice Kennedy joined the Court’s four decidedly liberal Justices to strike down a provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act that defined marriage, for purposes of over a thousand federal laws and programs, as a union between a man and a woman only. Today those same liberals, Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor formed the majority with Kennedy.

Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas dissented.

Barack Obama joyously greeted the news by calling the court’s ruling a “victory for America.”

“This decision affirms what millions of Americans already believe in their hearts: When all Americans are treated as equal, we are all more free,” he said.

Explosion of illegals: Nations fight crime, costs, loss of values, culture

June 20, 2015

5,000 illegals with criminal records released from custody in Arizona

Boosted by rising concerns over the cost of illegal immigration on Denmark’s welfare programs and erosion of “Danish values,” the Danish People’s Party celebrated victory with demands for a border crackdown. The Prime Minster conceded defeat and resigned.

Greece is inundated with thousands of Syrians and Iraqis fleeing Turkey, overwhelming authorities as the nation teeters on the brink of financial collapse. The Greek island of Lesbos with a native population of about 80,000 inhabitants is struggling to deal with 25,000 arrivals since the start of the year -— nearly half of the 55,000 who have reached Greece by sea from Turkey -— described as a “staggering 620 percent increase.”

Within the 28-member European Union, debate has grown over how to deal with the growing influx of Muslim “migrants” from the Middle East and Africa. Many countries have demanded that any acceptance system should be voluntary. France and other central European nations oppose imposition of quotas. Hungary has announced plans to build a 13-foot-high fence along its border with non-EU member Serbia, a move that triggered a rebuke from the United Nations Refugee Agency.

In Berlin, Muslim imams are conducting funerals for those who drowned in the Mediterranean, trying to get to Germany. More than 100,000 have arrived in Europe this year, 60,000 through Italy alone, according to the EU’s border agency Frontex —- which uses the descriptive term “irregular migration.”

In the Caribbean, hundreds of thousands of impoverished Haitians have invaded the neighboring Dominican Republic. Dominican officials have warned that people should start carrying documents to prove they are legal residents, to avoid deportation if they are stopped by authorities.

Here at home, despite astronomical rates of criminal activity by illegal aliens, the Obama administration provides tips on obtaining work permits to the invaders. Mark Krikorian has written a fact-filled report for National Review.

Townhall editor Katie Pavlich reports that Sarah Saldana, director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) acknowledged that no one was fired for releasing more than 65,000 criminal aliens onto American streets. They are protected from deportation and authorized to work in the U.S. by Barack Obama’s 2014 executive actions, which allowed illegal aliens to apply for deferred action status.

KTAR News reports that nearly 5,000 illegals —- repeat offenders with criminal records detained in Arizona —-  were released from custody, including 121 illegals now facing murder charges. They were previously released by federal officials from 2010 to 2014, despite Barack Obama’s assurances that his administration would deport violent criminals.

The criminal tentacles are far-reaching. In Wisconsin. Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Kansas and Missouri, 280 convicted criminal aliens from 22 countries have been arrested. Convictions include aggravated battery, armed robbery, drug possession, burglary, aggravated drunken driving, illegal possession of a weapon by a felon, battery, hit-and-run and drug trafficking. ICE officers arrested 34 men in Wisconsin during a month-long initiative, including 33 Mexican nationals and one Ecuadorian.


Boy Scouts victims of homosexual agenda

May 23, 2015

 Bizarro world of gay activism incrementally pushes agenda, sets standards

Homosexuality, which until 1973 was defined as deviant behavior by the American Psychiatric Association, has —- 42 years later —- become “gay” and trendy. Celebrities stumble over themselves to be the latest to declare their inclinations for members of the same sex. We are treated to countless characters in movies, on stage, coming into our homes via comedy programming and even the cartoons children watch.  Who doesn’t know that 65-year-old Bruce Jenner, a three times married father of six and stepfather of four is “transitioning into womanhood?” We are told this is worthy of celebration.

How do the Boy Scouts of America fit into this scenario? Start with their oath:

“On my honor, I will do my best: To do my duty to God and my country, and to obey the Scout Law. To help other people at all times. To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.”

The Scout Law states: A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.

Founded in 1909, scouting taught boys various survival skills, patriotism and morality. They earned merit badges for completing projects. Many city kids went camping for the first time in their lives. Public schools were happy to sponsor troops. In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge commended the three fundamentals of scouting: reverence for nature, for the law and for God.

Fast forward: Since the 1990’s, Scouting has been at the center of a firestorm. Homosexual activists and their surrogates have instituted several high-profile lawsuits, citing the BSA’s core belief that homosexuals cannot serve as scout leaders since that violates the traditional moral values defined in the Scout Oath and Law.

As an example, the ACLU of San Diego claimed that the organization’s practice was discriminatory and should make them ineligible for the use of public funds or public lands.

In 2005, the BSA removed the charters of thousands of scouting units from public schools after the ACLU threatened to sue taxpayer-funded institutions that charter the troops.

The city of Philadelphia, citing the Scout’s “anti-gay policies” pressured the Cradle of Liberty Council Boy Scouts of America to vacate the building the BSA built on city property in the simpler times of 1928 and has used rent-free for decades. In 2013, the city bought the building from the Scouts. At the time, more than 17,000 boys were served by the Council in Philadelphia and Montgomery and Delaware Counties.

Gay rights activists in dozens of cities persuaded United Way to stop supporting the Scouts, though UW distributed nearly $2 million to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, and no voices were raised in protest.

Now we learn that Robert Gates, former Secretary of Defense and President of Boy Scouts of America, has called for an end to the group’s ban on homosexual troop leaders. Gates, a former Eagle Scout (the highest scouting rank), declares, “We cannot ignore the social, political and judicial changes taking place in our country. We must deal with the world as it is, not as we might wish it to be. The status quo….cannot be maintained.” 

A righteous organization providing guidance to countless boys, many from fatherless homes, becomes the villain in this topsy-turvy world of sexual politics.

The kids lose.


“Reckless cowboys” stand up for free speech

May 6, 2015

First Amendment butts heads with violent Jihadists

In the warped world of the wizards at the Arizona Republic free speech should take a back seat on the politically correct bus. It’s incendiary, donch’a know?  On the other hand, they do purport to be journalists who value the protections granted in the First Amendment. Without a doubt they dance around the subject, weaving such differing opinions into the editorial that it’s not “difficult to imagine” heated debates surrounding the tone the message should take.

The opening words of Tuesday’s editorial which ran under two contradictory headlines in the hard copy and online editions:

“It is difficult to imagine a more provocative, indeed reckless, event: A contest among irreverent cartoonists to see who could draw the best caricature of the Prophet Mohammed.“

The editorial concludes with these words:

“As foolish as it may have been to engage in such an outrageous act of Islamist baiting, we cannot lose sight of the principle that prompted the gathering. The First Amendment does not exist to protect polite speech. It is there to defend obnoxious, even mean-spirited speech with enthusiasm.

The American Freedom Defense Initiative and its artists too willingly put the lives of others in jeopardy. There are better ways to make the point. But when terrorists are quick to kill those with whom they disagree, we’ll stand with the reckless, nose-thumbing First Amendment-riding cowboys.”

The Republic editorialists must be dizzy from spinning.

Andrew C. McCarthy, author and  policy fellow at the National Review Institute, has written a fine analysis in “Islam and Free Speech: Missing the Point in Garland.”

On Monday evening, Robert Spencer, director of Jihad Watch and vice president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, appeared on Fox News’ “The Kelly File,” discussing the jihad attack against the AFDI/Jihad Watch Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest in Garland, Texas.

This morning the New York Daily News reports ISIS terrorists —- dismissed by Barack Obama in 2014 as a “JV Team” —- have declared war on Atlas Shrugs blogger Pamela Geller who helped organize the event. An ominous online message claims ISIS has fighters across America ready to attack “any target we desire.”  They specifically target “Geller and anyone who hides or hosts her.”

Make up your own mind. You can do a much better job than those practiced bob and weavers at the daily. Are Americans supposed to cower in the face of this barbaric insanity?


Baltimore an example of decades of liberal control

April 29, 2015

Law abiding citizens gasp once again as chaos reigns in yet another American city. This time it’s Baltimore, where lawlessness, rioting, looting, arson and the injuring of 15 police officers rolls over into yet another day. It’s a repeat, on larger scale, of the anti-law enforcement mentality that rocked the black majority small town of Ferguson, Missouri in the heat of last August following the police shooting of a black youth. The per capita income of $21,000 is indicative of too little education resulting in too little opportunity. Setting the town on fire and looting stores is strangely regarded as a catharsis.

Now it’s Baltimore. Another death, this time a man in police custody, leads to more rioting, seemingly condoned by those who are supposed to be in charge.  Baltimore’s Democrat  Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said she instructed police officers to allow protestors to express themselves saying, “we also gave those who wished to destroy, space to do that as well.”

These reckless words were spoken as stores were looted and set ablaze, police cars torched and a flaming metal garbage can was hurled toward a line of police officers in riot gear as they tried to push back the violent crowd. Some officers were hit with bricks.

Later the mayor denied ever saying the words that were captured by news cameras. She unashamedly blamed the media for twisting her words and misleading viewers.

The actual misleading message was the one that echoed in the months preceding the 2008 election of Barack Obama. We were told electing the first black U.S. President would be historic. That it would be a balm for race relations.  In fact, they haven’t been worse since the days of the 1965 Watts riots which left 34 dead, more than 1000 injured and caused over $40 million in property damage in the predominately black section of Los Angeles. Over 2,000 National Guardsmen joined the police trying to maintain order on the streets at the time.

According to 2013 Census figures, Baltimore has a 63.3% black population. with 23.8 % living below the poverty level. It’s long been reported that well over half of the high school students in Baltimore City Public Schools are “chronically absent.” The connection is clear.

Race relations in America under Barack Obama have descended to levels most of us never lived through. Rather than healing, he has inflamed. Yet after four years of his failed policies, he was reelected by a stunning 87.4 % of the Baltimore City vote. In nearly 60 years, there have only been only been two Republican governors in the state of Maryland. 

Democrat policies are the root cause of the unrest. Liberalism fosters toxic government dependence. Cronyism, union corruption and the tragically failed schools (video) that follow in their wake, have run amok in Baltimore for over a half-century. 

Fifty-three percent of Americans polled by Bloomberg say race relations have worsened under the man who was supposed to usher in a golden era of “post-racial” relations.

Read Arnold Ahlert‘s “How Obama Poisoned Race Relations in America.” Though written in 2013, it remains relevant.
