NORKS to Execute 33 Christians: Leftists Rejoice

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 […]

Bill Whittle on Political Correctness

Here is another great video from Bill Whittle.  The topic is Political Correctness. Once again, Whittle knocks it out of the park.

Warnings About Communism From People That Lived Under it

Perhaps I should say, “emphasis on the ‘under it.”  As we all know, Communism in actual application is perhaps the most tyrannical killing machine ever devised by man.  Unfortunately, as we saw with OWS, many of those would-be Marxists deny that the deaths, starvation, or shortages occurred at all.  Fortunately for us, there are millions of people that lived under communism that can speak out on what really happened.  Glenn Beck interviewed several recently… Your browser does not support iframes. I wish there was a bit more, but I think the point is conveyed. But, as our friend Bezmmenov has told us, the truth means nothing to […]

The Utility of Free Speech Redux

govt-censorship

If you read the recent post, From The Front Lines of the Culture Wars: Student Disciplined for Thinking Homosexuality is Wrong, you would have seen an interesting exchange between Harrison, of  Capitol Commentary, and myself.  While we happen to disagree on that topic, I consider him to be a good blogger, who often asks us to question some core beliefs.  Our exchange reminded me of the following, which was originally posted on September 29, 2009.   As we all know, freedom of speech is under attack.  Mark Lloyd proposes to replace privately owned media with a government approved and moderated PBS.  Cass Sustein and Henry Waxman have […]

Fascist Friday: Reporter Fired for Disagreeing with Intolerant Left

It’s been quite some time since I’ve done a Fascist Friday post.  However, the left has risen (or shall we say fallen?), to the occasion.  Apparently, disagreeing with the left is still wrong, characterized as hate, and very punishable. Not following me?  Thinking this is right wing lunacy?  Take a look at this from Newsbusters, and decide for yourself. The censorious intolerance of the gay left is on display again – a reporter was fired in Waterville, Maine. His offense? Sending an angry private e-mail to the Human Rights Campaign in Washington. The HRC wanted the reporter dismissed – and […]

Honduras Holds Free Elections: Chooses Freedom Over Socialist supported by Chavez & Obama

Over the summer, I did several posts on the situation in Honduras.  The detailed information is here, and here.  For a brief recap of the events… Manuel Zelaya was the elected President of Honduras, and is closely aligned with Hugo Chavez. The Honduran Constitution has strict term limits for the office of the President.  One term, no more.  This part of the Constitution cannot be changed under Honduran law. Zelaya wants a “dictator for life” deal like his friend Chevez, however, their Constitution will not allow this. Zelaya suggests having a referendum to change to Constitution.  The legislature, with a […]

Oath Keepers Pledge to Uphold Constitution

“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their Houses, and Farms, are to be pillaged and destroyed, and they consigned to a State of Wretchedness from which no human efforts will probably deliver them. The fate of unborn Millions will now depend, under God, on the Courage and Conduct of this army” — Gen. George Washington, to his troops before the battle of Long Island This quote is taken from the Oathkeepers website.  I’ve been […]

Some Thoughts on the Media

So, the White House is attacking Fox News.  Of course, that will, in the end, only drive more people to Fox, but that doesn’t seem to stop the administration.  Their attack on Rush Limbaugh caused him a 30% percent increase in his ratings, so I’m not inclined to protest  their tactics. So why attack Fox?  Why say that they’re NOT a news network?   Why accuse them in engaging in a “witch hunt” against the President’s advisers?  To explore this, let’s answer another question; what is Fox doing? Well, in terms of the advisers, Hannity and Beck are showing videos of […]

The Utility of Free Speech

As we all know, freedom of speech is under attack.  Mark Lloyd proposes to replace privately owned media with a government approved and moderated PBS.  Cass Sustein and Henry Waxman have both floated the idea of regulating Internet content.  Speech codes on campus restrict the free flows of ideas on college campuses.  The ACLU threatens to sue kids that pray at graduation ceremonies.  People are threatened if they pray in public.  Conversely, the left is able to engage in whatever outrageous activity they choose, and even do what they accuse the right of doing.  The double standard is sometimes astounding. […]

De-Development: Coming to a “Sustainable Community” Near You?

John Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, caused a stir in late July when it was discovered that he supported “de-development” in the 1970’s.  Since this was a claim made about the 70’s, I decided not to discuss it.  After all, thirty plus years is a long time, and there is no current evidence that he currently supports this idea.  Though, curiously, requests for clarification on this have been ignored. Then, I decided to revisit the idea of “de-development,” because even if Holdren has moved on philosophically, what about the idea itself?  There would […]

Strategic Planning

NOTE: I wrote most of this two weeks ago.  Some of it might sound dated, but I got too busy making videos to post it.  I have updated relevant sections. With the Congress now in summer recess, we have a chance take some action on the home front.  Conservatives have done well, considering our legislative minorities, and the lion’s share of the messiah’s agenda has not been enacted.  While we have been somewhat successful, the left isn’t going anywhere. They will be back, so, we will have to continue our struggle to maintain our freedoms. The following are just one […]

Projection, Denial, Groupthink, and the Left

Projection is a form of defense in which unwanted feelings are displaced onto another person, where they then appear as a threat from the external world. A common form of projection occurs when an individual, threatened by his own angry feelings, accuses another of harbouring hostile thoughts. Encyclopedia Britannica The above definition should be very familiar to Conservatives, as the left frequently accuses the right of doing what they themselves do. As of late, the left has been accusing the health care protesters of being a “paid, angry, and unruly mob.”  Are they angry?  Yes. Are they unruly?  Sometimes, but […]

More States Line up to Resist messiah

As I discussed  back in May, states are beginning to resist the messiah’s plans.  First, governors were refusing stimulus money as it would require them to change their state laws.  (Not at all coercive, is it?)  Then, Montana exempted themselves from federal gun laws, at least in a limited way.  Also, several states are contemplating state sovereignty resolutions.  These, while toothless, do send a message to the messiah SPENDULUS MAXIMUS and his minions. And now, the latest The Arizona state legislature is working on a bill that would exempt their residents from being required to enroll in a public health […]

Iran and the Tea Parties

Is it just me, or are there some interesting parallels between the current Iranian situation and our own?  Let’s take a look. Iran blames US for uprisings.  See this article here. “The countries that have opposed Iran, whether openly or not, like the Western countries, led by the U.S., are the ones who are now inciting and talking about the Iranian elections,” said Sayyid Mojtaba Al-Hosseini, Khamenei’s representative to Syria. Mmkay.  This is probably they’re attempt to tell the “big lie” and blame their issues on a bogeyman rather than the fact that they’re oppressing their own people.  You’ll have […]

Socialism: Punishes Success and Rewards Fail!

The title is a little mantra that we Conservatives like to throw around because well, it’s true!   While I don’t have to explain this to our conservative readers, I thought an example might be helpful to the passing liberal.  But then again, a liberal will likely drink the kool aid and state some sort of Marxist class warfare mantra rather than have an independent thought and face reality. Anywho, here’s a story from the land of fruit, nuts, and Pelosi, that illustrates this nicely. In fact, until last week it looked like Moore was going to have saved enough money […]
