Individual Rights Vs. The CollectiveI compare America, the way the founders envisioned it, vs. America, the way the regressives want to degrade it. 

When we speak about the rights of the individual, we are saying something very different than the left’s view of the topic.  Our founders carefully crafted a Constitution that is designed to protect us from the excesses of government.  However, a sufficient percentage of the people have not guarded those rights against government intrusion, until just recently.  Those excesses are readily apparent in our country today:  federal control of education, health care, environmental law, interference with personal property rights, and a litany of others, all in violation of the spirit of the Constitution and it’s writers, interfere with the everyday citizen’s ability to live as he or she pleases.  Limits on religious expression, speech codes, censorship, and oppression are all also beginning to take a toll in the rights of the American citizen.

“Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation”

-James Madison

Our Bill of Rights is a prime example of the founder’s intent.  It guarantees the rights of the individual, while at the same time; the other sections vastly restrict the powers of the government.   The document was created with those concepts in mind.  Today, many liberals lament the fact that the Constitution stresses what the government can’t do, rather than what it can.  To this, I must respond, “That’s the way it’s supposed to be!” Our founders warned us about the threat from the left, even before the left existed.  Their warnings are valid because no matter the underlying philosophy, tyranny is tyranny.

“Of liberty I would say that, in the whole plenitude of its extent, it is unobstructed action according to our will. But rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law,’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual.”

-Thomas Jefferson

Tyranny, whether it comes in the form of Monarchy, Fascism, Marxism, or “progressivism,” attempts to “solve” human problems by government dictate and action.  To my knowledge, there has never been a totalitarian government that has directly said, “ We’re going to oppress you!”  Instead, they appeal to the masses, sometimes with an offer of protection from a real or imagined threat, or other times, with an offer of “equality and justice.”  Some offer relief from economic chaos, while still others offer a sense of pride or belonging.  Some take control by using carefully coordinated media propaganda and the artificial crisis.  Others assume power by a personality cult, threats, or intimidation.  Their functionaries may create laws and regulations with the intention of creating a crisis.  They may build on pre-existing cultural or economic jealousies, building the tensions until they explode into a ”created crisis” that they can then “solve.”  They use mobs of converts to bully and oppress anyone who interferes with their plans.  They will persecute and vilify anyone who speaks out with knowledge of their true inventions.  Dissenters are branded as defenders of the status quo, unpatriotic, terrorists, or otherwise have their reputations destroyed.  They may be deprived of their work, subjected to frivolous lawsuits, or other “punishments” designed to silence them.  Some may face physical danger, even death.   They will accuse their opposition of doing what their own activists do.  No matter how it is presented, totalitarians use empty promises to decieve the people, convincing them that their particular “medicine” is the cure for the problems they face.  They back that up with social disorder designed to advance their point of view, while at the same time, silencing or discrediting those that disagree with them.  They are deceitful, not only about their intentions, but about the true content of their plans.  Their true goal is gain power, and then, to maintain said power.

“single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day…a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers, to plainly prove a deliberate and systematical plan of reducing us to slavery.”

-Thomas Jefferson

Rights hold a different meaning for the left than does the right.  The left see’s the people as a large collective mass, not as individuals.  Their plans and schemes to “help” this mass are top-down controlled programs that do not allow for the individual needs of the people.  Whether it is health care, education, housing, or others, the government places restrictions and requirements on each, eroding the freedom of the individual.  So, when the individual accepts the government “drug,” they lose control over an aspect of their life.  The more of these “rights” that are accepted by the people, the more freedom they lose, until, in the end, their cradle to grave experience is fully managed by the government.   The left also seeks, in the end, to provide these “rights” to everyone, granting them ever-increasing levels of control over the mass and what they can or cannot do.  Since they view the people as a collective mass, they talk about “rights,” like housing, education, and health care. They then apply these to the collective, at the expense of your individual freedom.    At the end of the day, so to speak, the people might have these  “rights,” but they will have no freedom.  After all, if your government controls where you live, your medical care, what you can eat, your salary or wage, your education, your transportation, and what you can say, and where you can say it, how free are you?  Note that all of these examples are now being done, being discussed, or in the process of being enacted.

“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms (of government) those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny”

-Thomas Jefferson

Another concern with this view of rights is that the individual might be sacrificed for the good of the collective.  If a senior or a disabled person has to be denied care to supply those resources for others, it is acceptable to the left.  Ezekiel Emanuel has said as much himself.  If an individual or small group has to be economically ruined to satisfy a policy initiative, it is an acceptable sacrifice.  If a group of farmers has to be bankrupted to protect a fish, it will be done.  The top-down regulation cannot accept or account for the needs of individuals, only the collective.   In the last century, millions of individuals died in socialist experiments, five-year plans, and the Great Leap Forward.  These statistics were acceptable to the leadership, as long as the collective was maintained, and more importantly, the power of the leadership went unchallenged.

“If once the people become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress and Assemblies, Judges and Governors, shall all become wolves. It seems to be the law of our general nature, in spite of individual exceptions.”

-Thomas Jefferson

It is also important to note that the totalitarians do not always restrict  rights by direct action.  They will often create circumstances in which individuals will have no opportunity to exercise their enumerated rights.  Elected officials and government appointees have advocated for the control of web content, and the regulation of what one can say, and in what circumstances it can be said.  Similarly, talk radio is to be attacked by mandating changes in local ownership to those people that will not run conservative programming, in spite of the obvious advertising revenue.  The left  will, of course, say that people still have the freedom to speak; they’ll just close the venue.  In other situations, they will create regulations or taxes in order to create scarcity or make a product too expensive for a common individual to purchase or own.  Again, they will hide their intentions in claims of fairness, diversity, environment, and equality, but the true intention is again to gain and maintain power, while at the same time shutting off dissent.

“Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.”

-George Washington

The left also views the human family with disdain.  In the communist nations, efforts were made almost immediately to disrupt the family’s influence over children.  Education was co-opted almost immediately, with children being placed in government sanctioned programs at the earliest age possible.  Home schooling was banned, and private schools were either required to adopt the government program, or were closed altogether.  The purpose was, and still is, to indoctrinate children to the leftist point of view.  Independent thinking and the ability to use logic and reason to address problems are enemies of the left.  A person that can look at their situation and realize that the government is the cause of their problems is a stumbling block for the left.

Also, the government schools have actively worked to separate children from any religious beliefs that they were taught at home or in Church.  In the leftist totalitarian state, there can be no power higher than the state itself.  Religion must be ridiculed as “unsophisticated” or held up as a sign of a limited intellect.  Discrimination and restrictions on religious expression are soon to follow, either passed as law, or mandated by courts.  In the end, the left is jealous of God’s influence, and wishes it for itself.

At the same time the left is creating “rights” that do not exist in our Constitutional Republic, they go about systematically limiting the individual rights that our Constitution guarantees.  Speech codes ban freedom of expression on campuses as “hate.” Religious expression, particularly when the religion in question is Christianity, is being banned from schools and in the public square.  Even in the face of last year’s Supreme Court decision, opponents of the Second Amendment are still working towards a “gun free” America.  Other groups are attempting to use environmental regulations and misapplying eminent domain the deprive property owners of the use of their land and homes.  The power of the states to manage their own internal affairs is being controlled and dominated in defiance of the Tenth Amendment.  Activist judges, some of whom openly boast about making policy, legislate from the bench, creating rights that do not exist, and striking down ones that do.  This is a slow transformation of America, from a free state, to a socialist one.

The left views each human life as a burden; one more mouth to feed, one more brain to indoctrinate, one more body to medicate, one more statistic to manage.  Conservatives view each human life as an opportunity.  We believe that each human being can make decisions for themselves, and manage their affairs without the interference of the state.  Additionally, we can point to examples of government interventions either increasing problems, or creating new ones.

If we are to maintain our freedoms, and recover the full use of them, Americans from all walks of life must stand up and demand them.  This has started, but there is much to be done to stem the tide of tyranny that threatens to overtake us.  The days of political apathy are over.

“The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.”

-Benjamin Franklin

Must See Videos: Words Of Wisdom From Actor Jim Caviezel

Jim CaviezelHat/Tip to Steve Ertelt at Lifenews.com.

Mel Gibson may have practically ruined his career when he cast Jim Caviezel in the Passion of the Christ some 11 years ago. Since then, Caviezel has gone on to be in only a handful of big screen endeavors. Prior to Passion, Caviezel’s name was on the “up and coming” list in Hollywood, but after portraying Jesus’s last bloody days in Gibson’s movie, he says he’s been shunned by most of Hollywood.

When asked about it Caviezel shrugs it off and explains that soon after Gibson offered him the role, he called him back to warn him of the dangers to his career.

Jim Caviezel was a regular name on cinema hoardings before agreeing to take the lead in the controversial, bloody retelling of Christ’s final days. He headlined the 2002 remake of The Count of Monte Cristo and starred opposite Jennifer Lopez in the 2001 romantic drama Angel Eyes. However, Caviezel told an audience of churchgoers in Orlando, Florida on Saturday that he had “been rejected by my own industry” after choosing to join Gibson’s cast.

Gibson, he said, had initially offered him the role, only to call him back 20 minutes later and beg him not to take it.

“He said, ‘You’ll never work in this town again.’ I told him, ‘We all have to embrace our crosses,'” said Caviezel. He added: “Jesus is as controversial now as he has ever been. Not much has changed in 2,000 years.” – Source

Never mind that Passion of the Christ has gone onto make more than $600 million dollar worldwide, and it THE biggest grossing movie of all time, the mere fact that is about Christianity has the Left in Hollywood’s knickers in a twist.

Here are a few snippets of his interview with the Rock Church in Orlando, Florida.

 

 

Listen when Jim speaks about the forgiveness and grace of our God

 

 

 

 

 

Listen as Jim talks about what Freedom is and what it means

 

 

 

His thoughts on the lack of moral clarity in our society

 

 

This is a rare occasion when one of Hollywood’s biggest shuns the norm and stands up for his beliefs.

Oklahoma Senate Passes Unborn Child Protection From Dismemberment Abortion Act

Share

 photo life is beautiful_zpsnbcfeuni.jpg

Hat/Tip to Christine Rousselle at TownHall.com.

What a sad commentary that we even need a law like this…

Oklahoma is about to join Kansas and become the second state to pass a bill banning the dilation and evacuation (D&E) abortion technique. The Oklahoma Senate voted yesterday on the Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act as well as a bill that required a 72-hour waiting period for an abortion.

D&E abortions are performed in the second trimester of pregnancy, when the fetus is between the age of 12 and 24 weeks. It consists of removing pieces of the fetus with forceps.

But abortion is supposed to be quick and painless…

It is expected that Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R) will sign the bills. Oklahoma previously had a 24-hour waiting period before an abortion could be performed.

South Carolina and Missouri are also considering bills to ban D&E abortions in their states.

Former Secretary of State George Shultz

 


Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com.

Finally, some ACTUAL statesmen weigh in on the bogus “deal” President Obama has made with Iran.

Writing in the Wall Street Journal today, former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and George P. Shultz deliver a tour de force critique of the Iran framework deal. The essay is easily the smartest thing we have seen written on the subject thus far.

It starts by dishing out heaping portions of skepticism as to the enforceability of any putative final agreement. Consider the challenges: the size of Iran, the complexity of its program, the skill the Iranians have developed for deceit and concealment, and the intricacies of both domestic and international politics, which could make punitive action both too slow and too weak to prevent Iran from making a final dash for the bomb should it so choose.

The sharpest and, in this author’s opinion, most “spot-on” criticism speaks to the instability this “deal” with Iran will bring to the Middle East.

Absent the linkage between nuclear and political restraint, America’s traditional allies will conclude that the U.S. has traded temporary nuclear cooperation for acquiescence to Iranian hegemony. They will increasingly look to create their own nuclear balances and, if necessary, call in other powers to sustain their integrity. Does America still hope to arrest the region’s trends toward sectarian upheaval, state collapse and the disequilibrium of power tilting toward Tehran, or do we now accept this as an irremediable aspect of the regional balance?

THAT is what real statesmen sound like. John Kerry and President Obama could learn a thing or two from Secretaries Kissinger and Shultz..wait, never mind.

Those two already know everything…

Fraternity Smeared in False Rape Story ‘will pursue all available legal action’ against Rolling Stone

Share

It seems that the false rape narrative has an additional side effect, as Rolling Stone is soon to find out.    The AP has the story…

Here is more…

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — A fraternity at the University of Virginia announced Monday that it will “pursue all available legal action” against Rolling Stone, saying a Columbia Journalism School review shows the magazine acted recklessly and defamed its members by publishing an article that falsely accused them of gang rape.

“The Rolling Stone article viewed by millions fueled a court of public opinion that ostracized Phi Kappa Psi members and led to vandalism of the fraternity house,” the fraternity’s statement said.

“Clearly our fraternity and its members have been defamed, but more importantly we fear this entire episode may prompt some victims to remain in the shadows, fearful to confront their attackers,” said Stephen Scipione, president of the the University of Virginia’s Phi Kappa Psi chapter. “If Rolling Stone wants to play a real role in addressing this problem, it’s time to get serious.”

 

When one lies, one takes the risk of legal action.  It’s not hard to fact check, and it seems that even Rolling Stone had to know that their “victim’s” story didn’t add up.  However, they had narrative to forward, and the truth could not be permitted to interfere.

Mayors & CEOs Plan to Boycott Indiana Over LGBT Discrimination Law

Share

pence
Susanne Posel    Chief Editor

Occupy Corporatism | The US Independent
March 29, 2015

Indiana Governor and member of the Council for National Policy Mike Pence, told the media on a television interview that the Religious Freedom Restoration Action is a law “that prohibits state or local governments from substantially burdening a person’s ability to exercise their religion — unless the government can show that it has a compelling interest and that the action is the least-restrictive means of achieving it.”

This anti-LGBT legislation is slated to take effect by July 1st of this year.

Pence denied that this was “was a mistake” and referenced this law was “a piece of federal legislation more than 20 years ago.”

When asked about the discriminatory aspect of the new law, Pence said: “There has been shameless rhetoric about my state and about this law and about its intentions all over the Internet. People are trying to make it about one particular issue, and now you’re doing that as well.”

The governor continued: “The Religious Freedom Restoration Act has been on the books for more than 20 years. It does not apply, to disputes between individuals unless government action is involved, and in point of fact, in more than two decades, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act has never been used to undermine anti-discrimination laws in this country.”

Pence insisted that the law “is about protecting the religious liberty of every Hoosier of every faith.”

Yet, when asked, Pence refused to clarify “whether business owners in that state would be punished if they denied service to gays or lesbians” under this new legislation.

Regardless of how Pence explains the new law, it is clear that other state governments and municipalities are not in accord with Indiana.

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray said publicly that all city of Seattle employees are prohibited from traveling to Indiana on taxpayer funding.

Murray said the new law “doesn’t reflect the values [of Seattle who] has been a leader in the fight to protect civil rights and ensure equality for all people — no matter who you are, or who you love. This is why I am ordering that none of our taxpayer dollars should go toward supporting this discriminatory law.”

The Seattle mayor said he would ask the US Conference of Mayors to reschedule their next conference because it was planned for Indiana in advance of Pence’s new law.

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee reflected Murray’s sentiment by boycotting the use of state funds to any city employee to travel to Indiana.

Lee’s statement reads: “We stand united as San Franciscans to condemn Indiana’s new discriminatory law, and will work together to protect the civil rights of all Americans including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals.”

The San Francisco mayor continued: “Effective immediately, I am directing City Departments under my authority to bar any publicly-funded City employee travel to the State of Indiana that is not absolutely essential to public health and safety. San Francisco taxpayers will not subsidize legally-sanctioned discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people by the State of Indiana.”

Yelp, the San Francisco based corporation, said in a statement : “It is unconscionable to imagine that Yelp would create, maintain, or expand a significant business presence in any state that encouraged discrimination by businesses against our employees, or consumers at large. Yelp will make every effort to expand its corporate presence only in states that do not have these laws allowing for discrimination on the books.”

Marc Benioff, chief executive officer for Salesforce, said his company was cancelling their planned events for Indiana because he would not “require employees or customers to travel to a state where they could face discrimination.”

Benioff added that Salesforce would divest in Indiana because of the bill: “We firmly believe in the separation of church and state as provisioned in the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. The RFRA clearly blurs that line and opens the door to blatant discrimination.”

Tim Cook, chief executive officer for Apple, tweeted his company is “deeply disappointed in Indiana’s new law and calling for Arkansas to veto the similar HB1228.”

Indiana businesses such as “Angie’s List are canceling plans for expansion in the state.”

Lefty Rag Washington Post Rips Obama-Iran Nuke Deal

Share

 photo partners in crime obama and iran_zpsgyj0699m.jpg

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal.

The Washington Post is not known for espousing Conservative values, so if it comes out against you and your name is Obama, maybe you ought to step back and do some introspection. But then again the Leftist never does that, does he?

By The Tower

The question of whether to trust Iran’s claims that its nuclear program is purely for peaceful purposes can be answered by a single issue: “Iran’s failure to deliver on multiple pledges to answer questions about its suspected research on nuclear warheads,” a staff editorial in The Washington Post asserted on Saturday.

The editorial recounts how both in 2007 and 2013, Iran agreed to clear up any questions about possible military dimensions of its past nuclear research, but “it then stonewalled inspectors, refusing to answer questions or permit access to sites.” After Iran refused to allow inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to access its Parchin military base, where nuclear weapons research is suspected to have taken place, “the IAEA published an extensive report detailing what it already knew about the illicit bomb work and listed 12 outstanding issues.” The government of President Hassan Rouhani agreed to address these outstanding issues.

However, the Post documents that the promised cooperation was again not forthcoming.

But instead of implementing the plan, the regime went back to stonewalling. IAEA chief Yukiya Amano told The Post’s Steven Mufson this week that Iran had provided information on just one of the 12 issues. On two others, Mr. Amano said, it had given “very limited” responses, and the remaining nine had not been addressed at all.

An appropriate response to this blatant violation of agreements would be to insist that Iran complete the IAEA work plan before any long-term accord is signed or any further sanctions lifted. Inspectors need their questions answered so that they will be able to determine later whether Iran has violated the controls on its nuclear research expected to be part of a deal. Furthermore, it is vital to establish that Tehran will deliver on its commitments and that it will be held accountable if it does not.

The upshot of making a deal now, when that would allow Iran to push its obligations further into the future, is “that Iran will have some sanctions lifted before it complies with a commitment it first made eight years ago.”

The editorial concludes:

The question this raises was articulated months ago in congressional testimony by nuclear weapons expert David Albright: “If Iran is able to successfully evade addressing the IAEA’s concerns now, when biting sanctions are in place, why would it address them later when these sanctions are lifted?” In its rush to complete a deal, the Obama administration appears eager to ignore the likely answer.

Earlier this month, an editorial in the Post asserted that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu raised numerous legitimate questions about the nuclear negotiations that the administration should address. A subsequent editorialasked whether, in its desire to reach a nuclear deal with Iran, the administration was turning a blind eye towards increased Iranian aggression in the Middle East.

Although they initially supported the nuclear negotiations with Iran in November 2013, the editors of The Washington Post have recently called for greater pressure to be brought against Iran and has criticized the administration for ignoring the bipartisan Congressional objections to the emerging deal.

You don’t tug on Superman’s cape
You don’t spit into the wind
You don’t pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger
And you don’t mess around with… The US Military

Enjoy…..

When Taliban Snipers Shot At An Army Base, The Retaliation Was EPIC

You are about to watch one of the most epic videos ever. This is what happens when you mess with US Soldiers. Get ready to be pumped up.

These brave men were taking fire from the enemy Taliban near a ridge, so they immediately called in the big guns to take care of these terrorist thugs! You can’t miss this video. I have never seen a war video presented in such a cool way.

 

And just like that… 3 snipers that were responsible for many innocent deaths… blown to bits. That’s how it’s done here in America. When you mess with our brave men and women fighting for our freedom.

With A Tip Of The Hat To Marie Harf: The Top 12 #JobsForISIS

Share

state department spokesperson and obama hack marie harf 001

 

Hat/Tip to Rachel Stoltzfoos at Doug Ross @ Journal.

We all remember when the Deputy Spokesperson for the State Department famously said this:

 

MATTHEWS: How do we stop this? I don’t see it. I see the Shia militias coming out of Baghdad who are all Shia. The Sunnis hate them. The Sunnis are loyal to ISIS rather than going in with the Shia. You’ve got the Kurds, the Jordanian air force and now the Egyptian air force. But i don’t see any — If i were ISIS, I wouldn’t be afraid right now. I can figure there is no existential threat to these people. They can keep finding places where they can hold executions and putting the camera work together, getting their props ready and killing people forshow. And nothing we do right now seems to be directed at stopping this.

HARF: Well, I think there’s a few stages here. Right now what we’re doing is trying to take their leaders and their fighters off the battlefield in Iraq and Syria. That’s really where they flourish.

MATTHEWS: Are we killing enough of them?

HARF: We’re killing a lot of them and we’re going to keep killing more of them. So are the Egyptians, so are the Jordanians. They’re in this fight with us. But we cannot win this war by killing them. We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs, whether —

MATTHEWS: We’re not going to be able to stop that in our lifetime or fifty lifetimes. There’s always going to be poor people. There’s always going to be poor Muslims, and as long as there are poor Muslims, the trumpet’s blowing and they’ll join. We can’t stop that, can we?

HARF: We can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance. We can help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people…

Okay, so fast forward a week or so and #JobsForISIS is trending, with some peculiar results.

#JobsForISIS was trending nationally this week, after State Department spokesman Marie Harf said the solution to stopping ISIS is not by killing them, but by giving them jobs.

Here are twelve jobs Twitter users suggest the U.S. offer ISIS to stop them from beheading people:

1. WalMart Greeter

 

2. Personal Trainer


3. Bacon Makers

 

4. Jon Stewart’s Replacement


5. Obama’s Security Detail

 

6. Landmine Sweepers


7. Help Obama Find His Balls

Stand firm Rudy, screw the PC police! Tell it like it is!

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was on “The Kelly File” tonight, where he doubled down on his comment that President Barack Obama does not love America.

Megyn Kelly asked Giuliani: Do you want to apologize for your comment?

“Not at all, I want to repeat it,” he said, charging Obama with apologizing for America and criticizing the country.

Kelly pressed Giuliani, noting that Obama could view foreign policy through a Democratic lens. “But to condemn his patriotism, to question his love of America?” she asked.

“I don’t hear from him what I heard from Harry Truman, what I heard from Bill Clinton, what I heard from Jimmy Carter, which is these wonderful words about what a great country we are, what an exceptional country we are,” Giuliani said.

He stressed, “I’m right about this. I have no doubt about it. I do not withdraw my words.”

Obama Rewrites The Law Again, IRS Waives Obamacare Subsidy Clawback Penalties

Share

 

health care money

 

What do you do when you realize that millions of low-information voters are going to get hosed by your signature piece of legislation? Well, if you’re Barack Obama, you unilaterally decide not to enforce the inconvenient provisions of that law.

So it should come as no surprise that the IRS has “clarified” how they’ll recapture excess Obamacare subsidies come April 15th. They won’t. Not right away anyway.

If you got health insurance subsidies last year, and you’re worried that you got too much in federal tax credits and will be faced with a huge tax bill for repayment, then you can worry a little less: The IRS says that people who are liable for repayment (“clawback”) of excess subsidies won’t have to pay by April 15.

It’s not relieving you of the obligation to repay; it’s just saying that you won’t be liable for a penalty if you don’t repay by the deadline. Interest will continue to accrue, but the interest rates that the IRS charges are actually pretty reasonable (and probably much better than what your credit card company charges). It’s the failure-to-pay penalties it layers on top — half a percentage point a month, with even stiffer penalties for failing to file — that really make your tax bill add up fast.

Well, isn’t that special? Pay your taxes whenever you feel like it! That is, if you’re somebody the Democrats are counting on to help put Hillary Clinton in the White House.

As the saying goes, Obama’s got more nerve than cheap veal cutlet. This is, what, the 914th time he’s decided he can just ignore the law whenever it turns out to be politically embarrassing? Underpayment penalties are fine and dandy when they’re incurred by regular schmoes like me. But folks who bought into the Hope and Change? They gotta be given special dispensations! They can’t feel the pain of their own electoral dysfunction. They might, gasp!, vote Republican!

The Green Mitten Mystery: An Adventure To Save Christmas

Share

green-mitten-coverlg1

One Thursday in December, on the first morning of the first snowfall of the Christmas Season, three kids were being driven to school by their oldest sister, Katelyn. She was already a grown-up and would drive them to school everyday while their Mom babysat her little boy, Brenden.
As she pulled up to the building, she let her two brothers, DJ and Ryan and her little sister, Kaylee out to go to school.

“Have a good day at school, guys!” said Katelyn as she drove away.

DJ said, “It sure is cold, I wish it was warmer!”

“I’m glad that it’s cold”, Kaylee replied.

“Are you crazy?”

“No I’m not!” Kaylee said, as she stamped her foot.

Ryan said, “Remember what Dad told us? The first snowfall of the season means Santa was here checking up on everyone to see if they were being good!”

As the kids crossed the parking lot, Kaylee saw something lying out in the middle of the street and said, “Hey, what’s that?”
“I don’t know, let’s go see!” Ryan exclaimed.

So the boys began to run into the street, but when Kaylee started to go, DJ told her, “You stay here, Kaylee. You’re too young to go into the street.”

Kaylee hated being the youngest sometimes.

When they got out into the street, they saw that the thing on the ground was a mitten, a green one with beautiful golden threads. About that time the school bell rang, so Ryan grabbed the mitten and put it in his book bag. The boys ran back to Kaylee and the three of them went on to school.

Later that night after the children had all done their homework, after the family had supper and after everyone was in bed, Ryan took the green mitten out of his book bag. Quietly, so he didn’t wake his brother, he slipped the mitten onto his hand. When he did this, the room grew very bright, the mitten got very warm, and the golden threads started to sparkle. Of course this woke up his brother DJ because they shared a room.

He couldn’t believe his eyes!

“What is that?” asked DJ, “And why is it so bright in here?”

Ryan said, “This is that mitten we found this morning, the green one with the golden threads. I waited ’till everyone was in bed, then I got it out and put it on. That’s when it got warm and bright in here!”

“What else does it do?”

“I don’t know” said Ryan and pointed the mitten at one of his stuffed animals.

Suddenly it rose up and started shaking. This scared Ryan, so he quickly took the mitten off and the stuffed bear fell back on the bed. DJ said, “Don’t be scared, try again!” So Ryan grabbed the mitten, put it on and pointed it at the stuffed animal again. Just like before, the bear rose up and this time Ryan moved the mitten and the bear moved, too! Wherever he pointed the mitten, the stuffed bear moved all around the room.

“Wow!” said Ryan.

“How does it do that?” wondered DJ. “Why does it do that?”

Ryan said, “I have an idea.” Then he pointed it at their dog, Buddy. Just like the stuffed bear, he began to rise up and move when the mitten was pointing at him.

“This has got to belong to Santa!” said Ryan as he lowered the mitten and let Buddy back down on his bed. “Think about it, we found it the morning after the first snow fall of the winter when Santa was flying overhead checking up on who is naughty and nice.”

“He must have dropped it,” DJ said.

“This is cool!” said Ryan as he pointed it at their dog again. And before any of them knew it, Buddy was flying around the room, wagging his tail and barking happily. The barking must have woken their parents up, because just then, the hallway light came on. “Oh no! It’s Dad! Ryan put Buddy down and hide the mitten; we’ll talk about this in the morning!” So Ryan quickly put the mitten under his pillow and for the rest of the night he dreamed about mittens, and flying, and all sorts of wonderful things.

The next morning Katelyn dropped off her little boy, Brenden, just like always. Not wanting to be late for work, she tried to get the boys to get ready faster, but the boys were very sleepy because they had been up so late the night before playing with the mitten. Mom was pretty busy baby-sitting their nephew and making their lunches, so she almost didn’t notice that the boys were running late. In their rush to get ready, Ryan forgot the mitten under his pillow, and the boys went to school without it.

Later that afternoon when it was his naptime, Brenden began to get a little fussy. So Ryan’s Mom put Brenden down for his nap in Ryan’s bed. While Brenden was supposed to be taking a nap, he found the mitten under the pillow where Ryan had left it. Without giving it a thought, he slipped the mitten on. The room grew very bright, the mitten got very warm, and the golden threads started to sparkle! Of course Brenden was frightened and without meaning to, he pointed the mitten at the family dog.

This time Buddy was ready and he took off flying through the house! Brenden laughed and laughed crying, “Look at Buddy! He can fly!” He ran after Buddy as he flew into the kitchen. Mom and Dad ran into the kitchen to see what the racket was all about. You should have seen the look on their faces when they saw their dog flying through the air!

“What is that dog doing?” yelled Mom.

“Come here, Buddy” Dad called and grabbed the dog.

Well, you can imagine how many questions they had for the boys and Kaylee when their older sister brought them home from school.

“Where did you get that mitten, Brenden?” Katelyn wanted to know.

“Who gave it to you?” asked Dad. Brenden started laughing and tried to grab the mitten. “No, Brenden, you shouldn’t play with this you might get hurt,” said Katelyn.

“Nobody is going to play with this!” said Mom, “Because tomorrow I’m taking it down to the police station. They will know what to do with it.”

That night after everyone was asleep; Ryan got out of bed and woke D.J up. “Come on,” he said, “we gotta get that mitten back. If Santa doesn’t have that mitten, then there won’t be any Christmas.”

“Come on Ryan, do you really think Santa dropped it on the street by our school?” DJ wondered.

“Of course, he did; and we’ve got to get it back to him.”

“Well, first we’d have to get the mitten from Mom before she gives it to the police, then.”

“I know!” said DJ, “Ryan, you could pretend to be sick and when Mom goes to get the thermometer, you could grab the mitten!”

“No way! I’m not getting into trouble this close to Christmas.” exclaimed Ryan, and he added a very firm, “Forget you, pal!”

“It looks like I’ll have to do this myself,” sighed DJ.

“Well, you are my older brother,” said Ryan. All of a sudden, DJ didn’t like being the oldest brother, but he walked to his parent’s room anyway and very softly knocked on their bedroom door. When there was no answer, he swallowed hard and knocked again, louder. This time he heard his Mom say, “Who is it? – What’s the matter?”

“It’s me, Mom.” DJ answered.

“Come on in, son. What’s wrong?”

“W-W-Well, I-I was w-wondering if you would t-t-take my t-temperature,” stammered DJ. He was very nervous. While his Mom was getting the thermometer, DJ grabbed the mitten off of her dresser and tossed it into the living room where it was dark. She returned with the thermometer and DJ said “I feel better, Mom. Guess it was just a-a bad dream.”

“After all the excitement today, it’s a wonder you can even sleep at all! Now go on back to bed.”

So he turned and walked out of his parents’ room. When his Mom had closed the door, DJ grabbed the mitten and ran back to show his brother that he had it!

“I got it! I got it!” shouted DJ.

“SShhh!” warned Ryan, “You wanna wake up the whole house?

“Okay, okay, but now in the morning Mom will see that the mitten is gone and she’ll know that I took it!”

“Well, we gotta get it to Santa before Mom finds out then.” added Ryan.

“How are we going to do that?” asked DJ, “It’s not like he lives across town. I mean do you know how far away the North Pole is?”

“But if Santa doesn’t get that mitten he can’t make his reindeer fly. And if he can’t make his reindeer fly, then there won’t be any Christmas!” cried Ryan. “Looks like we’ve got no choice, we’ll have to leave tonight and take the mitten back to Santa.”

“Oh right, we’ll just hop in Dad’s car, cruise up to the North Pole and say ‘Hey Santa, how’s it going dude? Oh and, by the way, here’s your mitten!’” DJ laughed.

“Come on. Think. What do we have that can take us anywhere we want to go?” asked Ryan.

When DJ didn’t answer, Ryan said, “The mitten!”

Once again DJ laughed and said, “Yeah! I’ll be right back. Just gotta go outside and harness up all our reindeer!”

“No duh! We’ll have to use something else.” Rubbing his chin and thinking out loud, Ryan said, “Well, Buddy isn’t big enough and doesn’t have thick enough fur to keep him warm at the North Pole, but I do know where there is a dog that could do the job.” answered Ryan.

“You’re not thinking what I think you’re thinking, are you?” asked DJ.

When Ryan didn’t answer, he said, “No way! That’s too dangerous.”

”But we’ve got to do something,” Ryan replied. “I mean if Santa doesn’t get this mitten back, there won’t be a Christmas! Come on, DJ. You know I’m right, we have to do something.”

“But Killer is a HUGE dog. And-and his name is KILLER! He’s a KILLER dog!!”

“I think he’s just a Saint Bernard,” Ryan said.

The boys were talking about the biggest, meanest dog in the whole town. Killer. Killer belonged to Old Man Foster, who lived in the creepiest, scariest house in the whole town.

“Look, we have to try. How would you feel if we didn’t even try and there was no Christmas?” asked Ryan.

“Okay, okay, let’s go. But remember, this wasn’t my idea, Ryan.”

Quietly the boys got dressed, snuck out of their house and started down the road on their way out to the edge of town, to the scariest old house around – the Foster House!

As the boys got out on the road, they heard footsteps behind them. DJ said, “Run and hide!” so the boys quickly ran over to the side of the road and hid behind a telephone pole. All they heard was laughter. Peeking out from the telephone pole, DJ saw his little sister standing in the middle of the road, laughing at her brothers.

“It’s only Kaylee, Ryan. Come on out.” said DJ as he turned to his sister, asking “What are you doing here, Kaylee?”

“I heard you guys sneak out of the house, so I followed you. What are you guys doing way out here, anyway?”

“We’re getting Old Man Foster’s dog, Killer and we’re gonna use him to go to the North Pole and give Santa his mitten back and save Christmas!” Ryan gushed all at once.

“Be quiet Ryan,” DJ said, “now she knows what our plans are. You’ll have to go back home, Kaylee.”

But she’d have none of that, “I wanna go with you!! If you make me go back I’ll tell Mom and Dad all about your dumb old plans!”

“We don’t have time to argue,” DJ added, “so you’ll have to listen to us and do whatever we say.”

“Okay, I promise!!” Kaylee said, excited to be included in her brothers’ adventure. Maybe it wasn’t so bad being the youngest, after all.

So now the three of them approached the old Foster house. They snuck into the back yard through a hole in the fence between two bushes.
“There’s Killer,” whispered DJ.

“I hope he’s already had dinner!” gulped Ryan.

Just about then, the back porch light came on and a gruff voice said, “Okay you kids, come on out. I know what you’re up to!”

“Oh no! How’d he know what we’re doing?” asked Ryan. They were tempted to go back through the hole in the fence, but the kids stood and slowly walked up to the old house.

Once inside they found the house very neat and tidy, and warm and cozy. Then they reluctantly told Mr. Foster the whole story. Instead of yelling at them or calling the police, Mr. Foster smiled and said, “Well, after that adventure, I bet that you kids would enjoy a cup of hot chocolate!” And with that he turned and went into the kitchen to make four steaming cups of hot chocolate – complete with marshmallows. While he was gone Ryan said, “Wow! I thought he was mean and grumpy, but I guess we were wrong about him.”

“Remember that Dad says to look for the best in everybody,” DJ reminded him.

“Hey, don’t forget, we’ve still got a mitten to deliver!” Kaylee spoke up, impatiently.

Just then there was a knock on the front door and Mr. Foster went to open it. Never in a thousand years – no – never ever even in a million years would DJ or Ryan or Kaylee have guessed who was about to step into that old house just then!

But there he was – red suit, black boots, white beard and only one green mitten!!

“I understand you children found something that just might belong to me.” he said with a voice that was at once booming with authority and at the same time, soft and gentle. None of the boys were able to say a single word, but Kaylee stood up and yelled “Santa Claus!” and ran straight to him. Then she gave him the biggest hug that she knew how to give!

For the next half hour the children told Santa how they had found the mitten and all the trouble that they had gone through to try to return it to him. Finally, Santa looked at his pocket watch and said, “Well children, if you’ll give me the mitten, I’ll be going now. After all, Christmas is only a week away and I still have a lot of work to do!” So DJ handed the mitten to Santa and all the children and Mr. Foster told Santa goodbye. As he walked out the door everyone heard him say, “Ho, ho, ho! Thank you kids, and Merry Christmas.”

Shortly after Santa left, the children saw car headlights pull up to the house. “Uh-oh,” said DJ, “its Mom and Dad. I bet we’re really gonna get it!”

Ryan said, “Since it was my idea to try to make it to the North Pole, I’ll take the punishment.”

Then Ryan realized that in all their excitement over meeting Santa Claus, they forgot to ask him how he had known that they had his mitten in the first place. So, he asked, “But how did Santa and Mom and Dad know where we were and what we were doing?”

“I guess I can answer that,” said Dad as he walked through the door. “Mr. Foster gave us a call a little while ago. He said that you were all over here and he also told us about the mitten.”

“But how did you know, Mr. Foster?” asked DJ.

“Yeah, how did you know about the mitten and how did Santa know?” demanded Kaylee.

“Okay, okay kids!” Dad exclaimed, “That’s enough for tonight. It’s late and we need to get you kids back home to bed!” Then he turned to Mr. Foster and said, “Thanks so much, we’re sorry if the kids bothered you or Killer. You know how excited kids can get around Christmas time.”
“Oh don’t worry about it. It was fun to have visitors. They’re welcome anytime for a cup of hot chocolate!” replied Mr. Foster.

With that Mom and Dad ushered the kids out the front door. As they were on their way out and just before she walked out Mr. Foster’s front door, Kaylee looked back and she saw something that made it all very clear for her. On a table in the other room, where she could just see it through a partially open door was a bright red phone next to a candy cane-striped pole with a sign on it that read:

North Pole Hotline

north-pole-hotline-2

“So that was how they knew!!” Kaylee said to herself.

No one else saw it, only her.

And for the first time, she was glad she was the youngest.

Record Numbers Of Over 17,000 Protest “Islamisation” In Germany

Share

Fed up with the creep of Sharia and the constant demands from the allegedly “peaceful” and “tolerant” Islam, protesters in Germany seem to have had enough.

A record 17,000 anti-Islamic protesters rallied for their tenth demonstration in as many weeks Monday in eastern Germany, celebrating the rise of their far-right populist movement by singing Christmas carols.

 Germany has for weeks grappled with the emergence of the “Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident” or PEGIDA, whose ranks in the city of Dresden have swelled rapidly from just a few hundred in October.

About 4,500 counter-demonstrators marched through the city under the slogan “Dresden Nazi-free”, warning that there was no space for racism and xenophobia in the country that perpetrated the Holocaust.

Most PEGIDA followers insist they are not Nazis but patriots who worry about the “watering down” of their Christian-rooted culture and traditions. They often accuse mainstream political parties of betraying them and the media of lying.

Braving cold and wet weather, they gathered outside the historic Semperoper concert hall for their pre-Christmas recital. Police put their numbers at about 17,500, up from the previous high of 15,000 a week earlier.

It looks as if Germany’s economy is being pushed to the breaking point by large numbers of immigrants from Muslim countries.

The influx of refugees from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and several African and Balkan countries has strained local governments, which have scrambled to house the newcomers in old schools, office blocks and army barracks.

Sound familiar? The same thing is happening on our southern border.
