The Truth behind all the lies and deception

It has taken a lot of reading and training myself to "read between the lines".  There are some in the Conservative media sphere that have this gift (think Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin).  They can relay a news story snatched from the MSM and while they highlight the distortions and outright lies and lies by omission they inform their audiences of the subtleties of the truth.

Keeping this in mind, David Brooks was on PBS "News Hour" this last week to pontificate his opinion on the David Brat victory over Eric Cantor.  David Brooks, as you know, is what the left wing media holds up as their "token conservative" to spew left wing dung posing as right wing conspiracies.

He is about as right wing as Al Sharpton.

I digress.

He starts out with a nugget of truth --  "ends any hopes of immigration reform making it through Congress in the near-term"

This is the fear that is currently striking at the hearts of establishment politicians and their MSM handlers.  Pro-Immigration Reform, aka Amnesty, is a death sentence politically. 

These same MSM pundits (and even some on Fox News) label David Brat as the "Tea Party" candidate when, in fact, he received no formal contributions from them at all.  They do so, because they all label the Tea Party as anti immigration and thus make Brat out to be their straw man along these lines.  David Brat was outspent by the establishment (GOP) by ridiculous numbers.  Brat spent so little on his campaign that he did not even reach the amount that Cantor's campaign staff spent at a single steakhouse restaurant.  Think about that. 

The Brooks quote above ended with the follow deception mixed with truth -- if the Republican Party doesn’t get right on immigration, it’s a threshold issue".

Here Brooks is browbeating the GOP to grow a set and defy their constituents to keep pushing the amnesty bill forward, in spite of the Cantor loss by saying they need to "get right on immigration".

The truth in the quote is that it's truly as "threshold issue" but not in the way they paint it.  The truth of the issue is in line with the David Brat victory side of things.

Illegal immigration reform was soundly rejected during the Bush term.  When that administration and those in Congress tried to move that issue forward they were inundated with letters, faxes and phone calls in the millions telling them that they are in peril politically if they do so.  They seemed to have got the message then.  Like most liberals and establishment GOP'ers, they think they can get a different result by the same actions.  The polls that show distrust of those in Congress and our Government in general are because we believe they (the establishment elite on both sides) want amnesty, but for different reasons.  The left because of a new and huge voting block they can exploit in future elections and the GOP because of cheap labor for their "Chamber of Commerce" chums.

One of the lessons the Brat victory taught us, according to Brooks, is that -- "First, you can’t buy elections."


How many times have we heard from the MSM and Democrats moan, groan, whine and complain about the "Citizen United Supreme Court case"?

Accordingly it IS about buying elections to them.  This is exactly why the IRS is targeting these very same groups that benefited from the Supreme Court decision.

The other members on the Panel with Brooks pontificated the following --

SHIELDS: But I think there’s one factor that comes out of this, and having been up on the Hill yesterday, and that is, every member is terrified.
WOODRUFF: In both parties?
SHIELDS: In both parties, but particularly because they know — immigration is dead. Let’s be very honest about it.

They aren't terrified (both parties) because immigration is dead, they are terrified that their constituents do not want it!  Period.  The establishment get their money from the pro-immigration crowd, not from the little people.  This is their fear.

Brooks isn't done yet.  He goes on -- And I think there is overwhelming data on this, that if the Tea Party — if the Republican Party doesn’t get right on immigration, it’s a threshold issue. They really do not do well in a national election for a long, long time.

And every day, there’s more evidence that comes out, more survey data and everything. And so I think this makes it extremely unlikely the Republicans does get right or some sort of immigration reform."

Here is the browbeating again.  It is established above that the reason for the fear (on both sides of the establishment) is that the voters want no part of this legislation on amnesty.  Yet, if the Republicans don't get on the right side and pass it, they won't win an election for a very long time.  The lies and deceptions are a knee-jerk reaction because THEY know they are on the wrong side of every issue as they drag this country down the "big government" path. 

The next few months are going to be fun to watch as they continue to push us, prod us, lie to us that WE are out of touch with immigration.  This is why they use fuzzy-warm language in couching the issue as "Dreamers".  Who doesn't like a dreamer?  I for one do not if they are jumping over a fence or swimming across a river illegally to bring us crime, disease and yes, democrat voting blocks.

America is my Mother

When I was a child growing up in the sleepy farmland of Ohio everything around me was an adventure.  I did not know, or even comprehend the fact that it was America, not my parents, that raised me.  I guess on some level I did as I understood that it was America, the country, that protected me from harm of distant shores and evils as I ducked underneath my desk at school during our drills designed as a result of the nuclear age.  I pledged allegiance to her and prayed every night before bed to keep everyone I knew, as well as some I did not, to keep us safe.

I loved my mother and yes, I took her for granted in my safety.  I went about life as most did in those days dreaming of rich new horizons that awaited me as long as I worked hard to achieve those goals.  I complained that life wasn't fair when I was knocked to the ground ignorant that my brothers and sisters (Americans) had it harder than I because of their skin color, religious beliefs or stations in life that were not as I had it.  It took me half my life to understand this and as a result has made me a stronger man. 

My early adolescent years were in the 1960' and 1970's.  I lived in Los Angeles during the Watts riots and witnessed (mostly on TV) the ugly side of racism and those who struggled to beat this oppression.  I do not, nor have I ever considered myself racist.  I do though concede that I am ignorant of the true suffering of those of color.  How could I understand as I have never, until now, been a victim of this dynamic.

America's children have survived some tumultuous and dangerous times during that period and in a lot of ways have become better for it.  Now, though, in this time our parent (America) is very sick and suffers a form of dementia not unlike an aged parent or grandparent who is afflicted with Alzheimer's. 

We have entered into some very dark days.  Day's that we feared as children and unfortunately our children do not even know the face of this evil.  Our children have been indoctrinated in collectivism and believe that our current parent (America) should decide what is good and bad for us as a society without the free will of consequences.

How can you explain to them that their adopted parent covets death more than life itself?  To them abortion is as natural as having a tooth pulled.  They do not consider anything morally as long as it is quick and convenient.  A botched abortion is when the baby lives.  They also have been taught that a botched execution of a convicted murderer is when the convict dies.  We are in some truly dark days my fellow Americans. 

Today schools have are not teaching our children the evil of Communism, instead they are promoting it as some dreamy landscape filled with everything equal.  They do not know that Mao; Castro, Che; Pol Pot; Stalin and their ilk have murdered millions to achieve this very landscape.  A couple of generations of ignorance and they do not know that evil is staring them in their collective faces.  Our education system is glorifying them and eradicating God at an alarming pace.  Harvard University is currently holding Satanic Rituals as a course.  Dark days.

I remember my parents commenting on the hippy movement and the anti-war demonstrators marching across America in my youth and having them comment that "one day, they will be in charge -- God help us."

Well, that day has arrived and the only thing that can help us is God.

You want some answers

image by:

There have been a lot of questions that many Americans are asking these days because the landscape in which we find ourselves are quite foreign.

Here are a few!

Why is the Federal Government, through it's various Agencies, purchasing so much ammunition?

There are many answers to these questions when the BLM attempted to wrangle some cattle in the Nevada desert at the end of a gun.  During this heated operation that was ordered (though this is still debated because of the fingerprints of Harry Reid, China and Rory Reid all over it), organized and executed by the Bureau of Land Management it seems we are beginning to understand the need for the ammo.

The impetus for this armed action of the Federal Government over a private American citizen was an elusive unpaid cattle grazing fee.  There is an amount being bandied about in the MSM somewhere around $1 million dollars though the Government, through court transcripts never quantified this amount and it may be a little as a couple hundred thousand.  Be that as it may, it should send warning bells ringing that our Government is storming in, guns pointed, in order to collect a monetary debt.  The Bundy's were not targeted because of terrorism or gun running that would justify an armed incursion to bring them to justice.  They were targeted because of an uncollected monetary debt.  Through the years, the Government has had it's eyes on this land and first attempted to reclassify the grazing area as a habitat for a turtle that the other Government agency said was being endangered because it could not compete for the food that the cattle was consuming against.  So the MSM is now arguing that the Bundy's are law breakers therefore why shouldn't they be arrested, by force if necessary.  Then you have the angle that the MSM, Harry Reid and many other Democrats arguing that the Bundy supporters are domestic terrorists.  Of course these are the same domestic terrorists that are against the Federal Government and it's overreaching power grab.  You know, grandma and her friends who call themselves tea party activists.  The same people that Janet Napolitano and Homeland Security wrote those law enforcement memo's about.  The same people that have been holding training drills against in many US cities across the land.

We have gone from "Debtors Prisons" to "Debtors firing squads" here.  It is not enough that those in positions to use these over armed federal agencies to target individuals that disagree with them but that use of power is becoming more and more frequent.

In 2000, the INS stormed a private residence in Miami at gun point and took a boy to return him to Cuba.  Elian Gonzales.  Janet Reno and the Clinton Administration (with the help of Eric Holder) ordered it. 

Some years previous (1993) to this action listed above, Janet Reno and President Clinton cut their chops on another government raid in Waco Texas.  76 people inside lost their lives.

The MSM has attempted to aid the BLM and their Federal handlers by painting the Bundy's as law breakers while ignoring the other explosive story that involves Harry Reid, his son Rory and his clients the Chinese Government.

SIT DOWN and SHUT UP already!

‘The debate over repealing this law is over,’ he insisted. ‘The Affordable Care Act is here to stay.’


Isn't it a curious thing that in the weeks preceding Obama's April 1st Rose Garden speech Democrats were trying to hide from their participation in shoving this monstrosity down America's throats.

Isn't it a curious thing that during the time that the open enrollment period for this monstrosity the Government could not come up with a coherent number of those who have actually enrolled yet on April first they have placed a highly specific number with a decimal in it in front of us.

 Obamacare “is doing what it’s supposed to do; it’s working.

Isn't it curious that millions have been dropped from their current healthcare plans, that they have liked.  Why, because Obamacare is doing what it's supposed to do?

Isn't it curious that millions cannot see the doctors that have had for years and have come to trust as their primary defense for their families healthcare.  Why, because Obamacare is doing what it's suppose to do?

Now, according to sources who actually try to follow the "intended" consequences of Obamacare, the statistics bear a different story -- "Well, he allegedly got 7.1 million enrollees on paper, but let’s look at the myriad ways that number is reduced.

National Journal reports that an estimated 15 to 20 percent of these enrollees haven’t paid their premiums, which means they won’t be covered. So right off the bat, you have to reduce the number to between 5.7 million and 6 million, which means the figures already won’t work.

Instead of 38 percent of these enrollees being in the young and healthy category, Michael Tanner of the Cato Institute reports that less than 30 percent of enrollees are younger than 35.

Also, RAND Corp. estimates that only about one-third of the new enrollees were previously uninsured, which means that two-thirds of the 5.7 million or 6 million cannot properly be counted in these figures. So we have fewer than 2 million net new enrollees. But we’re still not finished.
In addition to this, RAND estimates that nearly a million more people lost their plan because of Obamacare and couldn’t afford to replace it because Obamacare mandates coverage of additional risks and causes premiums to increase.

Does that mean we are actually down to about 1 million net new enrollees?

Not to destroy your day further, but on top of all this, Obamacare is projected to cost the government — meaning taxpayers — $2 trillion over the next decade, which isn’t even being factored in here. And how many believe that number isn’t grossly underestimated? Also, Obamacare is going to cause cuts to Medicare Advantage, which will reduce benefits or increase premiums for people by an estimated $35 to $75 per month.

As you can see, Obama is giving you only a fraction of the information you need to understand this picture and imparting the false impression that Obamacare is working now, and when premiums skyrocket next year, he can scapegoat the insurance companies and proceed to his beloved single-payer, full-blown statist scenario. - Human Events

I think the American public will show this fool and the ship of fools that have floated this turd what the real "intended consequences" will look like come November.

What good is it for citizens to have guns when the Government has tanks?


This is a fairly common question, that deserves an answer.

How does a gun help against a rocket fired miles away, a drone or airplane flying overhead, or a massive tank driving through your house?...

The simple answer to the question is “assymetric warfare.” Smart fighters don’t put their troops in front of the enemy’s best weapons. They use their best troops against their enemy’s week points, and exploit those weak points mercilessly.

In the hypothetical event that the federal government attempted to impose tyranny upon the citizenry of the United States, it would likely trigger the largest insurgency that the modern world has ever known.

Despite all of our awesome technology, we stink at fighting insurgencies.

We lost in Vietnam. We won the conventional war against the Iraqi military easily, but we didn’t defeat the insurgency. We’re losing Afghanistan, and our leadership has no intention of fighting to win.

All of these insurgencies have been overseas, where the supply lines were long, but relatively well-protected. The producers and supply chain itself were never threatened.

In the event of an American insurgency, it wouldn’t be a straight-up fight of partisans with rifles fighting against regime tanks, helicopters, and drones.

It would be a war where “killing” a fighter jet occurs by assassinating aircraft mechanics, or burning the homes of employees of the companies that make crucial replacement parts. It would be a war where every elected official, government employee, and skilled worker in the supply chain would be a target, every day of their lives.

In short, it would be a nasty, brutish conflict full of atrocities with no battle lines, no rear areas, no retreat, and little chance for government forces to survive over the long term.

As long as the American public outguns the military—and they do by more than 90 million firearms—no sane government would dare turn on the American people. That is the reason it is so important for the citizenry to jealously guard their Second Amendment rights.

The consequences of free speech

On the heels of the joyous news that CNN is canning the Brit (Piers Morgan) another juicy tidbit comes out of Alex Baldwin.  He has had it.  Good-bye public life.  After the endless drivel that has come out of his mouth from public humiliation of his daughter that was recorded to the gay slurs he made in public just as his MSLSD show got underway, he is reaping a whole heap of consequences that most liberals pile onto Conservatives.

While he proclaims he was misunderstood about his gay bashing remarks he is trying to show the world at the same time he say's he is leaving it that he actually sympathizes with that lifestyle.  In an article in Vulture he explains the following:

"I flew to Hawaii recently to shoot a film, fresh on the heels of being labeled a homophobic bigot by Andrew Sullivan, Anderson Cooper, and others in the Gay Department of Justice. I wanted to speak with a gay-rights group that I had researched and admired, so I called its local Honolulu branch.
The office number turned out to be some guy’s cell phone. I left him a message—I said, “I’m from out of town, I’m visiting Hawaii on business, I’d like to  get some information on your group.” After two or three more calls, he answered the phone. I said, “Yeah, I’m the guy that called about your organization.” And he said, somewhat impatiently, “Okay, well, what did you want?” I said, “Well, let me put it to you this way, Nick. Your name is Nick? Nick, let me begin by asking you a question. Who would you say, by your estimation, is the most homophobic member of the entertainment industry currently in the media?” And he paused for a long count of four and said, “Um … Alec Baldwin?”
And I said, “Ding, ding, ding, ding! Bingo, Nick, bingo! That’s who you’re talking to.”
He said, “C’mon!”
I said, “Nick, I want to come in and talk.”
I met with Nick and others from two LGBT organizations. We talked for a while about the torment of the LGBT life many of them have lived while growing up in traditional Hawaiian families. Macho fathers. Religious mothers. We talked a lot about words and their power, especially in the lives of young people."

I thought that the last paragraph was indicative of the gay rights movements plan to shove their lifestyle down everyone's throats, including Alex's.

When the LGBT people talked about the torment of growing up in "tradition families" with "Macho Fathers" and "Religious Mothers" it laid open the truth.  Traditional families are under attack as "out of the mainstream".  Next is the effeminate males that liberals are hell bent on transforming through sensitivity indoctrination as well as drugging normal boys into submissive and plyant subjects utilizing Ritalin.  Finally, it wouldn't be a hat trick unless Religion was also the target.  It seems that the LGBT group thinks it is predominately women (mothers) to blame.  Talk about liberal "war on women".   

CNN announces Pier's Morgan cancellation

It appears that CNN has found some reasoned decision making and decided to pull the plug on the Brit rabble rouser Piers Morgan. 

According to Politico -- CNN President Jeff Zucker has decided to bring an end to Piers Morgan’s low-rated primetime show, network sources told POLITICO on Sunday. “Piers Morgan Live” could end as early as next month, though Morgan may stay with the network in another role.

Morgan, a former British tabloid editor, replaced Larry King in the 9 p.m. hour three years ago, prior to Zucker’s tenure as president. His show earned consistently low ratings, registering as few as 50,000 viewers in the 25-to-54 year-old demographic earlier this week.

“CNN confirms that Piers Morgan Live is ending,” Allison Gollust, head of CNN communications, told POLITICO on Sunday after an earlier version of this post was published. “The date of the final program is still to be determined."

It only took 3 years of low ratings to come to this decision.  Though CNN reports that his show earned consistently low ratings I think it should have been reported as "few as 50,000 viewers in the barely able to breath demographic".  The key here is that he "earned" his low ratings which is another fine example of the low bar set by Obama in the job performance arena.

According to the NY Times article, Morgan admits -- "It’s been a painful period and lately we have taken a bath in the ratings,” he said, adding that although there had been times when the show connected in terms of audience, slow news days were problematic."

Slow news days?  This is part and parcel of his earning.  In the 3 years he has opened his mouth all things liberal and carried Democrat water, the big news stories were always there and continue to be there.  CNN, MSMBC, NBC, CBS just refuse to report the actual news.  They create slow news days.
