  • The Cambridge Police acted stupidly
  • If I had a son…
  • Sending three White House reps to Michael Brown’s funeral
  • Calling Sandra Fluke
  • The Bergdahl swap

The list goes on and on.

What list?

Why the list of events or issues that Barack Obama has come down on the wrong side of, that’s what list.

Add Sony’s decision to pull the premiere of their movie, The Interview when pressure put on theatre owner’s across the country forced their hand. Basically, if no theater chains would carry this film, then you can’t release a movie.

Of course Obama just acts like Sony got cold feet because North Korea launched a pretty nasty cyber attack on them.

“Sony Pictures Entertainment is and always has been strongly committed to the First Amendment. For more than three weeks, despite brutal intrusions into our company and our employees’ personal lives, we maintained our focus on one goal: getting the film The Interview released. Free expression should never be suppressed by threats and extortion.

The decision not to move forward with the December 25 theatrical release of The Interview was made as a result of the majority of the nation’s theater owners choosing not to screen the film. This was their decision.

Let us be clear – the only decision that we have made with respect to release of the film was not to release it on Christmas Day in theaters, after the theater owners declined to show it. Without theaters, we could not release it in the theaters on Christmas Day. We had no choice.

After that decision, we immediately began actively surveying alternatives to enable us to release the movie on a different platform. It is still our hope that anyone who wants to see this movie will get the opportunity to do so.”

As for the President wishing Sony had contacted him…

“I think (Sony) made a mistake,” President Obama said earlier on Friday in a press conference addressing the Sony hacking attack, which the FBI said the North Korean government was responsible for. “That’s not what America is about… I wish they’d spoken to me first. I would have told them, ‘Do not get into a pattern in which you’re intimidated by these kinds of criminal attacks’.”

To which the Sony CEO Michael Lynton said:

“I did reach out,” said Lynton, who said Sony indeed sought assistance from the President. “We definitely spoke to a senior advisor in the White House to talk about the situation. The White House was certainly aware of the situation.”

To recap, not only is our President completely wrong on why Sony took the action they did, but he lied about this, to boot.

Par for the course, Mr. President…

Obama Administration puts Israel on Terror Watch List – Removes North Korea

Hat/Tip to Pamela Geller.

It isn’t backwards day in Washington DC – or wait. I guess you could make the argument that every day is backwards day in DC.

Anyway, it may as well be, because this administration has put Israel on a terror watch list – and taken North Korea off of it. Yep, you read that right.

Only in the twisted world of the Obama Administration, where allies are trashed, and enemies are embraced, could the tiny nation of Israel, on the front lines of the war on terror for decades, be on a list of 36 nations which “have shown a tendency to promote, produce, or protect terrorist organizations or their members.”

As reported by CNS News

 The Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General published the list of “specially designated countries” as an appendix to an unclassified May 11 report–”Supervision of Aliens Commensurate With Risk“–that was publicly posted on the Internet. (The appendix is on page 18 of the document.)

As a matter of policy, according to the inspector general’s report, citizens of Israel and other “specially designated countries” are subjected to a special security screening called a “Third Agency Check” (TAC) when they are actually detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the division of the Department of Homeland Security responsible for enforcing the immigration laws.

ICE terror watch list of specially designated countries

The five countries on the list that do not have majority Muslim populations–Kazakhstan (47 percent Muslim), Eritrea (36.5 percent Muslim), Israel (16.9 percent Muslim), the Philippines (5 percent Muslim) and Thailand (4.6 percent)–have had internal problems with radical Muslim terrorists, as reported by the State Department.

Okay, so how exactly does this affect immigrants to the US from Israel?

The inspector general recommended in the report that ICE change its screening policy “to require officers to conduct TAC screenings for all aliens from SDCs, not just those held in ICE detention facilities.”

Now just to clarify, the DHS is NOT deporting illegal immigrants who break the law, but the Inspector General recommends the Israelis visiting the US are subject to these additional screening procedures.

Wait! It gets crazier:

Even though the adminisration includes Israel among “specially designated countries” that it believes “have shown a tendency to promote, produce, or protect terrorist organizations or their members,” ICE Spokeswoman Gillian Christensen told CNSNews.com that the U.S. also considers Israel, as well as some other countries on the “specially designated countries” list, as partners in the struggle against terrorism.

“The U.S. does not and never has considered Israel to have links to terrorism, but rather they are a partner in our efforts to combat global terrorism,” Christensen said in a written statement. “Countries may have been included on the list because of the backgrounds of arrestees, not because of the country’s government itself.”

OH Israelis will now be subject to extra screening because the country arrests terrorists.
That makes sense?

And evidently North Korea is no longer a sponsor of terrorism…

The 35 countries plus the West Bank and Gaza that were on the proposed list discussed in the ICE memo uncovered by McClatchey in March 2008 almost exactly matches the “specially designated countries” on the list published by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General on May 11, 2011. There are only two differences: North Korea was on the list proposed in 2008; it is not on the May 2011 list. Israel was not on the list proposed in 2008; it is on the May 2011 list.

I think Pamela Geller sums this whole bit of nonsense up nicely:

See how this administration cares about Israel? Even though the list was already set, they made a change to put our ally on this special list. Boy oh boy, just like he is with Great Britain, whose Queen he gave an Ipod full of his speeches and Broadway Show tunes, Barack Obama is a real friend of Israel.

Obama always says that despite his constant criticism of Israel, America will always have a special partnership with the Jewish State. Now we understand he means putting Israel on a “special” terrorism watch list.

NORKS to Execute 33 Christians: Leftists Rejoice

Share

I imagine that there are at least a few US leftists laughing up a storm over the fact that the NORKS are executing 33 Christians for being Christians…

Brutal North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has ordered the execution of 33 Korean Christians for setting up 500 underground churches with South Korean Baptist missionary Kim Jung-wook.

The Daily Mail reports that Kim Jong-un has ordered the execution over the suspicion that this small group of Christians were “attempting to overthrow” his regime, thereby undermining North Korea’s doctrine of “juche” — where decisions for the country are made en masse and to “prevent the influx of capitalist practices and beliefs.”  

The Baptist missionary, Kim Jung-wook, was jailed in 2013 for the same crime, underground churches, and appeared at a press conference recently where he “apologized for committing ‘anti-state’ crimes.” He said he had entered North Korea from China with Bibles and other Christian media with intent to distribute them in Pyongyang. During the press conference Jung-wook “confessed” his crime:

I was thinking of turning North Korea into a religious country, and destroying its present government and political system.

The 33 North Koreans are said to have confessed that they received money from Jung-wook and that he wanted them to build a church in Pyongyang on the site where a statue of North Korea’s founder, Kim Il-Sung, stands after the regime falls, according to The Chosun Ilbo.

In a sense these Christians are guilty of upsetting their NORK’s current political system.  In any communist state, the state itself takes the place of God.  In fact, the state becomes more pervasive than God, dictating and providing for every aspect of the life of every citizen.  In any nation where social justice and equality reigns, the God (Jehovah) is a fearsome enemy, as He displaces the state as the deity.  The god of the state is rather jealous, and since that god cannot defeat, the actual God, the little “g” god goes after the followers of the real one.

Obama Eliminates the Possibility of North Korean Nuclear Attack

Share

That’s right, ladies and gentle Obamaphone users!  Dear Leader has eliminated any chance of North Korean nuclear attack. By deploying the great and mighty nuclear defence shield, the great Obama has protected us all from harm, contrary to what the racist tea baggers would tell you.  Here is a clear, yet simple informational graphic. 

nuke-free-zone

These simple signs tell the North Koreans that we don’t want mushrooms clouds enveloping our cities and incinerating our undocumented.  Just like in Chicago, we banned guns, and there are most definitely no murders there at all!  And, as we all know, if we lay down our arms and utilize courageous restraint, others will hold our hands, and sing Kumbayah!

Oh, and by the way, it’s all Bush’s fault!

OWS Defends North Korea?

Share

What happens when the most repressive regime on Earth is featured in an American film?  OWS comes forward to defend it! That’s right, when Red Dawn was re-made, the Soviet Union was “unavailable” to be the adversary, so the producers turned to North Korea. And, when the communists at OWS heard of it, they decided to protest it.

I loved the first guy for suggesting that they have been trying to unify their people-read subjugate them!

Just to repeat the comparison…

Of course, the OWS folks think that it’s terribly unfair that the people in South Korea have lights, food, and a functional economy.  So, to remedy the unfairness, they would want the north to take over, so no one would have lights, food, or a functional economy.

And that, my friends, is called social justice.

Screwing Everyone Equally: Socialism Explained

Share

Hey kids, here’s Matt with another example of how learning can be fun…

And how is this in action right now?

Businesses know that Obama has more taxes in mind, so they aren’t sure exactly how much they will be penalized for being successful, or even trying, so they aren’t hiring or expanding.  When you get zapped for trying, why try?  Aren’t we seeing that now?  Businesses aren’t willing to take the risk when there is less chance of reward.  It’s happening right now, and will only get worse.

History also teaches us that this happens.  For a homegrown example, here is an excerpt from my yearly Thanksgiving post…

After the poor harvest of 1622, writes Bradford, “they began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop.” They began to question their form of economic organization.

This had required that “all profits & benefits that are got by trade, working, fishing, or any other means” were to be placed in the common stock of the colony, and that, “all such persons as are of this colony, are to have their meat, drink, apparel, and all provisions out of the common stock.” A person was to put into the common stock all he could, and take out only what he needed.

This “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need” was an early form of socialism, and it is why the Pilgrims were starving. Bradford writes that “young men that are most able and fit for labor and service” complained about being forced to “spend their time and strength to work for other men’s wives and children.” Also, “the strong, or man of parts, had no more in division of victuals and clothes, than he that was weak.” So the young and strong refused to work and the total amount of food produced was never adequate.

To rectify this situation, in 1623 Bradford abolished socialism. He gave each household a parcel of land and told them they could keep what they produced, or trade it away as they saw fit. In other words, he replaced socialism with a free market, and that was the end of famines.

Many early groups of colonists set up socialist states, all with the same terrible results. At Jamestown, established in 1607, out of every shipload of settlers that arrived, less than half would survive their first twelve months in America. Most of the work was being done by only one-fifth of the men, the other four-fifths choosing to be parasites. In the winter of 1609-10, called “The Starving Time,” the population fell from five-hundred to sixty.

Redistribution is  really going to make the economy “recover,” right?  It didn’t work in the 17th century.  It didn’t work in the Soviet Union, or for the NORKS, but it will work here.  At least, that’s what our leftists are telling us.

And This Man is Supposedly a Genius?

Share

We’ve heard a bit lately that Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Barak Obama are super-ultra-mega intelligent, and, in fact, too smart to be POTUS.  Of course, lefties then contrast that claim with the supposed dullards; George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan.  But, like all really  super-smart politicians, Carter dropped the following comment…

To quote RS McCain, “WHISKEY-TANGO-FOXTROT???”

You know, I kinda consider myself a reasonalby intelligent guy, and I think I can help out the former, and epically failed POTUS…

1.  The NORKS have, arguably, the most repressive government on the planet.

2.  That government is of the Communist persuasion, and history teaches us that Communist countries haven’t  done a very good job of feeding their own people. Frankly, they stink on ice at it.  The Soviets and ChiComs had massive starvation problems.  But don’t worry, they just didn’t have the right people running it, right?

3.  While the NORKS eat tree bark, and have just a few hours of electrical power a day, their leaders live like kings.

4.  While the NORKS live in misery, their government does devote massive amounts of funds and resources on maintaining a huge military, developing offensive missile systems, and did I mention the nukes?

5.  Did I mention that the NORK’s “Dear Leader” keeps much of that military, and the threats to use it, pointed at their prosperous and free neighbor to the south?

So, former-failed-President Carter, I think the real human rights abuses might just lie with the NORK government, not the South.  Your claim smacks of a protection racket. The NORKS place their military on the border, sinks South Korean naval vessels, and threaten to nuke everyone, and you want the South to feed every open NORK mouth?  Why don’t you suggest that they hand over their lunch money too?

You see folks, the left confuses political ideology with intelligence. Unfortunately, political ideology, and “progressivism” in particular, makes supposedly smart people say really stupid things.

And Carter just jumped on the short bus.

The Question of Government For the People

Share

People new to this site or who are not familiar with communism in practice may not like some of my claims about big government and the leftist agenda in America… but this is probably because the idea of what government should be has never been fully thought through by regular folks out there. I mean, when times are good, when we are not being killed by enemies and our economy is humming along, no one really pays attention to politics… only when times are tough do we have a majority that start having real, hard opinions on what is happening in our country, but by the time they do start thinking critically, people start worrying about what the government should do and not questioning what the role of government should be. This is the most important question.

Ultimately, citizens must decide on how much government is best. Conservatives, true conservatives, believe that a society where government simply serves as an arbiter, as a protector of rights, contracts, and provider of national security is the best model. This belief stems from our founding documents, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, that provided our nation more than two hundred years ago with one of the most effective and free forms of government ever conceived. Mistakes were made along the way and mistakes are being made as we speak, but essentially, the dream of America is what made this country great and what, God willing, will make this country even greater in the future. Conservatives answer the question of the role of government by putting faith in a balanced idea of freedom and responsibility, faith in free market competition, and faith in the first principles upon which our nation was founded.

Other nations have answered this question differently. The extreme examples are the Soviet Union, China, North Korea, and Cuba. Of these countries, most of them have teetered on the verge of starvation, one collapsed without a shot being fired, and one is growing because they have embraced a limited free market model. This is the (sadly) enduring legacy of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, the architects of the idea of communism, i.e. absolute central government power.

The modern liberals, since FDR, answer the question of government’s role in a similar fashion. They believe that the government should be placed in charge of things beyond what government was initially intended for and this belief makes them think of themselves as “progressives”… in charge of progress. They find disparity, in any sense, unnerving and therefore see government as the only vehicle to address such disparity. The answer to pressing needs, for liberals, tends to be “more government,” with the idea behind such a belief being: if it’s important, then government should be taking care of it. This is the liberal opinion of what government’s role is. Motivations and ulterior motives aside, I believe, as do conservatives in general, that such an approach puts us on the road to a more centrally planned society… a repudiation of the American Dream.

The idea of liberty is one that most Americans believe in. Most liberals I talk to are more put off by the “social issues”  espoused by the right than the ideas of fiscal responsibility or limited role of government… but I often ask these liberals if we should ignore American culture outright? Is that the nature of our republic? To ignore the beliefs of a people and deny them their right to be heard? Whether the issue is abortion rights or prayer in school, shouldn’t American citizens get a say in these types of decisions? Theocracy is as terrible as communism and true conservatives do not believe in that type of society. Right now, with the leftward swing of government, conservatism is experiencing a sort of revival, a revival that does not necessarily include socially-based politics. This is a good thing. Politics should focus more on the political than on the spiritual especially because our founding fathers erred on the side of liberty rather than the side of morality when they thought up our great system. This also applies to the left, meaning we should not impose a particular secular moral code on America either. People can choose for themselves.

Conservatives are reclaiming their political power in the wake of the leftist takeover of Washington and this is something that should be cheered by all parts of the political spectrum… if successful, conservatives will hold Republicans accountable for their mismanagement and for their complicity in the culture of corruption that engulfs both parties. Conservatives believe that the solution lies in reducing the scope and size of government, for if there is nothing for the special interests to pay for, no one will get paid off. Those that would nudge us in the direction of a Big Nanny State bring us dangerously closer to a society where government gives and government takes at its own discretion, where personal freedom gets taxed, mandated, and regulated, and where people start to lose the American spirit… this I call socialism, a society based on the collective that stamps out the individual, and those who advocate for “spreading the wealth around” I call socialists. It may seem extreme to those who think that socialism represents only those dictatorships with the goose-stepping military marches and large statues of stern-looking demagogues, but in truth many of those systems were put into place by people who thought that government was the answer for all their problems… until their own governments got so out of control that it became the problem.

Socialism starts somewhere… and that somewhere is the minds of everyday Americans who place more trust in a central earthly authority than in the power and endless potential of human freedom.
