Ethnic solidarity is good!

So says Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs ... as long as it's solidarity among the right people. Here, he posts a video that denounces Senator Marco Rubio for the horrendous crime of enforcing federal immigration laws. The video is entitled, "SEN MARCO RUBIO SIDES WITH HIS PARTY OVER HIS PEOPLE."

Can you imagine how Prince Charles would sniff and scowl over a video that accused a White politician of working against his own people?

Next step: A nationalized police force

Progressives want Obama to nationalize the nation's police forces into one massive, unstoppable domestic army. Of course, their announced intentions are the most noble:

In cities across America, local law enforcement units too often treat low-income neighborhoods populated by African Americans and Latinos as if they are military combat zones instead of communities where people strive to live, learn, work, play and pray in peace and harmony. Youth of color, black boys and men especially, who should be growing up in supportive, affirming environments are instead presumed to be criminals and relentlessly subjected to aggressive police tactics that result in unnecessary fear, arrests, injuries, and deaths.
Yes, it's for the minorities, as are almost all expansions of DC's power over us. You see, we can't trust local communities to treat these helpless people fairly. Only the enlightened ones in DC can dispense justice fairly and equitably while respecting the rights of its citizens. (That's why the National Security Agency is held in such high regard.)

The open letter to Obama invokes the case of Michael Brown, naturally. But it fails to mention the riots that erupted as a result of his shooting, which suggests there's good reason for the police to suspect the people in these communities have other things in mind than just wanting to "live, learn, play, and pray in peace and harmony." From the look and sound of things in Ferguson, I'd say these populations are looking for an excuse to loot and burn. But that's just me.

FBI, DHS bulletin warns of retaliation for airstrikes against ISIS

What's this? These people seem to think Muslims might not like having the US bomb their homelands - and might even strike back. From Fox News:

The FBI and Department of Homeland Security have sent out a bulletin to law enforcement officials warning that U.S. airstrikes in Iraq could provoke retaliation by Islamic State sympathizers in the U.S., Fox News has learned.

The warning on Friday comes shortly after U.S. intelligence officials said there is evidence foreign fighters have returned to their home countries and started Islamic State cells. While there is no evidence of a credible plot against the U.S. now, the latest bulletin warns that the lone wolf nature of the threat would make it difficult to thwart.

"It is difficult to predict triggers that will contribute to [homegrown violent extremists] attempting acts of violence," the bulletin said. "[Lone wolf terrorists] present law enforcement with limited opportunities to detect and disrupt plots, which frequently involve simple plotting against targets of opportunity."

Islamic State militants claimed last week that the execution of American journalist James Foley was in retaliation for U.S. airstrikes in Iraq.
Makes sense to me. After all, 9/11 was just blowback from DC's 60-odd year war against Muslims in the Middle East. And with our borders so laughably porous, and with numerous immigrant communities to hide in, Muslim terrorists would have little trouble carrying out retaliatory operations in the US. So we'd better think twice before unleashing hell once again - it might bounce back at us.

The sun is setting on the DC Empire

Uh-oh - looks like more folks are catching on to DC's deception. Here's leftist professor Cornel West expressing his disappointment at Obama:

No, the thing is he posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit. We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency, a national security presidency. The torturers go free. The Wall Street executives go free. The war crimes in the Middle East, especially now in Gaza, the war criminals go free. And yet, you know, he acted as if he was both a progressive and as if he was concerned about the issues of serious injustice and inequality and it turned out that he’s just another neoliberal centrist with a smile and with a nice rhetorical flair. And that’s a very sad moment in the history of the nation because we are—we’re an empire in decline. Our culture is in increasing decay. Our school systems are in deep trouble. Our political system is dysfunctional. Our leaders are more and more bought off with legalized bribery and normalized corruption in Congress and too much of our civil life.
Whoa! Notice he uses the terms "empire in decline," "war crimes," "national security presidency," and "Wall Street presidency." If you closed your eyes, you'd think you were listening to a League of the South speech. But West is right - the DC Empire is no democracy where new leaders can be elected if the present ones disappoint - THEY'RE ALL THE SAME. All presidents serve the Military Industrial Complex by giving it the gloss of popular support. The Empire is run by Big Business and Big Government, what Eisenhower originally denounced as the "Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex."

The bottom line is that the DC Empire is losing legitimacy. Tick-tock...

FBI Admits: No Credible Threats to US From ISIS

Our handlers have hit the panic button about ISIS, so patriotic Americans are supposed to run around their computers and TVs screaming their lungs out and beg Obama to save them. (So - it's 2003 again.) And just as in the days prior to the invasion of Iraq (what former NSA director Lt. General William Odom called "the greatest strategic disaster in American history"), there are authoritative voices countering the hysteria. Despite the ravings of the armchair strategists and coffee table security experts, the FBI sees no domestic threat from ISIS:

US officials have been keen to build up the threat of ISIS to ever broader, ever more hysterical levels. Sen. James Inhofe (R – OK) even claimed they’re close to coming up with some secret way to wipe out an entire major US city.

The honest assessments aren’t nearly so alarmist, with the FBI conceding in a bulletin issued to local law enforcement today that there is no specific or credible threat of an ISIS terror attack on the US.
Have we learned our lessons from Afghanistan and Iraq? We can always hope - and try our best to get the word out in time.

"Get Ready"

It's the biggest threat to our freedom and lives since Saddam Hussein and Manuel Noriega combined! There's no time to think! Let's bomb something!

Yes, here we go again - the DC Empire is about to unleash hell in the Middle East once again. Those drooling sounds you hear are from the War Industry and the pro-war, any war crowd. Fox News has the lascivious details:

Top U.S. military brass and former administration officials are publicly pressuring the White House to consider taking the fight against the Islamic State into Syria, warning that the terror organization poses an unprecedented threat to the United States.

"ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen. They're beyond just a terrorist group," Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Thursday, adding that the U.S. will have to take a "cold, steely hard look" and "get ready."
And THIS TIME, we're assured there REALLY IS a threat to the Homeland. Really.

US Airstrikes Will Continue Until Muslims Stop Hating Americans!

Yankee blowhard Pete King, safe 'n snug in his Congressional office suite, wants Obama to order yet another bloody round of mayhem against the people of the Middle East:

Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) on Wednesday said the beheading of American journalist James Foley by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) was effectively "a declaration of war" and called for a stronger U.S. military response.

"The president has to announce that this is a basically almost a declaration of war on the United States," King said Wednesday in a phone interview.

"We don't have the luxury of just saying, 'The war is over. The war's not going on,’ ” he continued. “There is a war. It's a threat to the U.S., and we have to fight back.”
Pete King could be the reincarnation of William T. Sherman. He's got the power, and he's got the crazy.

Missouri cop was badly beaten before shooting Michael Brown

Let's see how Charles Johnson and the SPLC manhandle this inconvenient fact about the left's favorite "gentle giant":
Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations, suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket) fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing his gun, a source close to the department's top brass told FoxNews.com.
“The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side,” said the insider. “He was beaten very severely.”

The Civil Rights Revolution Marches On! ctd.


What's a White politician to do when the NAACP demands he change his position on something? He caves, that's what. Kent Buinn, the mayor of Ocala, Florida, once supported an ordinance that banned the public display of underpants. But when the NAACP said "Grovel!", Mayor Buinn answered, "How low?" From WKMG of Orlando:
Just over a month after signing the controversial saggy pants ordinance, Ocala Mayor Kent Guinn said Tuesday he no longer supports it and is urging council members to reconsider.
"I think you get into really dangerous territory when you start legislating what type of clothes people wear or how they put together their ensemble," Guinn said.
His stance comes after criticism by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The groups claims to be taking direct action against the city, which can mean a lawsuit, according to Dale Landry, with the NAACP Florida chapter.
"I'm sorry, it's going to be black males that are the subject of this," Landry said.
The saggy pants law bans anyone on city property from wearing his or her pants two inches below the natural waist in a way that exposes their underwear or buttocks. Offenders can be fined up to $500 and spend time in jail.
This is what the Civil Rights Revolution has produced: same-sex "marriage," open borders, and now the God-given right to wear your pants around your knees in public.

What's next?

The Civil Rights Revolution Marches On!

In the name of equality, private property must be abolished along with traditional morality. And both took a beating recently in New York. From American Thinker:
New York farmers who host birthday parties and other events must pay a $13,000 fine because they refused to host a gay wedding.
The couple, Cynthia and Robert Gifford, have hosted gay wedding receptions in the past. But because weddings are conducted on the first floor of their house, Cynthia Gifford refused to host a gay wedding ceremony of two lesbians because of her Christian faith.
So the Giffords cannot use their own property as they see fit, and they must suffer for refusing to embrace Cultural Marxism. And remember - the Civil Rights Revolution was supposed to extend freedom to all.

The Two-Party Curse

Republicans care only for the rich, while Democrats champion the poor. Right? Well, that's a well-used and effective slogan for Dems, but as this Salon writer confesses, it's a pretty empty slogan. In truth, Democrats have a lot to answer for:

In a much-reported study, the Russell Sage Foundation discovered that median household wealth in this country fell by 36 percent in the 10-year period ending last year. Wealth for people at the top, as other news stories remind us, has continued to soar. These things are a consequence of the Great Recession, of course, but they are also a reminder of the grand narrative of our time: The lot of average Americans constantly seems to be growing worse. ...

But sooner or later you will also have to acknowledge that there are two parties in this country, not just one; that the Democrats held significant power during the period in question, including (for much of it) the presidency itself; and that even when they are not in the White House, these Democrats nevertheless retain the capacity to persuade and to organize. For a party of the left, dreadful news like this should be rocket fuel. For the Dems, however, it hasn’t been. Why is that? Well, for one thing, because a good number of those Democrats have not really objected to the economic policies that have worked these awful changes over the years.
Off-shoring and floodtide immigration have done more to depress middle-class income than any other government policy. With jobs vanishing overseas, and with competition for remaining jobs at home increasing from low-wage immigrants, the middle and lower-middle class working folk have been pummeled. Remember, it was Bill Clinton who pushed through NAFTA, which turned out to be disastrous for workers. And Obama rammed through the free trade agreement with South Korea.

The Democrats' idea of helping workers is to toss them an anvil when they're drowning.

SPLC Watch

Fox News ran a story entitled "FBI warns New Black Panther leader in Ferguson inciting violence." The SPLC then reports in its Hatewatch blog that the motive in reporting on the Black Panthers was to "stoke fears of racial violence."

Media Matters: Fox News raises specter of New Black Panthers to stoke fears of racial violence in Missouri.

I'm no fan of Fox News, but check out this short video of the New and Improved Black Panthers in action, and judge for yourself who's guilty of stoking racial violence:

Strange, huh? As Steve Sailer observes, "It’s almost as if the national media and the Democratic Party naturally work together to try to boost black turnout in November by stoking racial hatred against whites." Hmmm...

Scots moving to a 'Yes' vote on independence

Support for a free and independent Scotland has grown by 4 percent from the previous poll. From The Scotsman:

Last night, independence campaigners welcomed the rise in Yes support. Blair Jenkins, chief executive of Yes Scotland, said: “This is a very encouraging poll – putting Yes support up by four points in a month. Yes is continuing to gain ground and success on 18 September is within Scotland’s reach. The poll also shows that among those who were undecided last month and have now made up their minds, they have come to Yes by a margin of two to one.

“Scotland is one of the wealthiest countries in the world. More and more people are agreeing with us that only with independence can we make that enormous wealth work better for all the people who live and work here.”
While support for Scottish independence still has a long way to go, this is a big deal, not just for Scotland, but for other independence movements, including our own. As noted political commentator Ed Sebesta observes:

If Scotland secedes then secession will become a real possibility for many elsewhere. Great Britain has been a nation for quite some time. The Scotland and England [sic] have been one nation since 1707. That is over 300 years ago. There may be successful secessionist movements elsewhere, but if the Catalans do or don't secede it won't have too much impact on the American or the English speaking imagination. However, Scotland, England, and Great Britain occupy a special space in the American imagination.

If Scotland does secede what was unimaginable become imaginable.
Well said!

"An act of war upon our people"

Our Virginia-Maryland State Chairman, Shane Long, does a fine job describing the real issue of floodtide immigration in this article from National Geographic:

In Manassas, the Hispanic community has doubled within the last decade and now makes up a third of the population. The small city, with a population of around 28,000, has become a battleground just as surely as it was during the Civil War....

Now the new battle cry in Manassas is to keep the undocumented children from settling in the county. "We should deport illegal immigrants who are in violation of our laws, because it is the law and because that discourages other potential illegal immigrants," says Letiecq. "There is a legal process for legitimate immigration, and it starts at an embassy or consulate, not with the Border Patrol tens or hundreds of miles inside the U.S."

Shane Long, vice chairman of the Maryland chapter of the League of the South, takes a more radical position. Child or adult, legal or illegal—it doesn't matter, he says. He asserts that "a large amount" of native Virginians and Marylanders share his belief that all of the above intrude on Southerners' right to exist as a distinct people. "Any act or nonaction by the federal government to bring about such large influxes of non-Southern peoples is genocide and is viewed as [that] by native Southerners," he says. "It is, in effect, an act of war upon our people."

Who wins?

Here's Jeremy Rosner urging Obama to launch another war despite popular opposition:

Polls in March showed that most Americans did not want the United States to get very involved in the conflict between Ukraine and Russia. But there was zero public outcry when Obama deployed a dozen U.S. F-16s to fly reconnaissance on the Russian border, sent warships to the Black Sea, and put more than 500 U.S. troops into neighboring countries.

In too many other cases, however, President Obama has seemed to avoid sharp-edged actions abroad, partly out of a fear that the American public will not support him. Obama’s new willingness to deploy American advisers and air strikes to protect U.S. interests in Iraq is more encouraging, and both he and his successors will find that if they take strong actions abroad that advance America’s national security interests, even an inward-focused public will provide the latitude they need to act.
While the pro-war, any war crowd begs Obama to bypass the Constitution for their pet cause, the pro-alien (that is, anti-American) crowd is also demanding Obama usurp authority to further their cause:

When US lawmakers left Washington DC for a five-week long congressional recess late last week, a frustrated Barack Obama said he was left to “act alone” on immigration....

“I don’t think the president has any option but to do something that is bold, and big and our community will judge him based on the scope of that,” said Lorella Praeli, the advocacy and policy director for United We Dream, a pro-immigration reform group, during a conference call with reporters on Thursday....

Frank Sharry, executive director of America’s Voice, an immigration advocacy group, said during the call that Congress’ refusal to pass immigration reform gives president “sole responsibility” to act, adding that the gridlock provides a pathway for the president “to go big on administrative action”.
The bottom line of both groups is that their respective cause is so lofty, such trivial matters as constitutional formalities and majority opinion DO NOT MATTER. Thanks to these pressure groups, we are lurching toward an imperial presidency.

And you know what really kills me? When you argue against either group by reminding them the Constitution restricts the president from giving them what they want, you get branded as "extremist." How long can we call ourselves a nation of laws when one man can impose his will on the rest of us?

Picking sides in Ferguson

There is no good news from Ferguson, other than the fact that as of this morning, the riots there have not spread to other cities. The arrival of Missouri State troopers to replace the Ferguson police seems to have cooled things off a bit. Still, the streets of Ferguson are tense. And it's hard to sympathize with the street thugs who are clearly using the situation as an excuse for looting and mindless violence. On one side we have the forces of barbarism and anarchy. Here, the rioters are preparing Molotov cocktails:
The left has embraced these goons, pretending the protesters are only expressing righteous outrage. Sure - every flat-screen TV the rioters steal is another step toward racial harmony. But as repulsive as these rioters are, I'm equally horrified at the actions of the local police, who look more like an occupation army than peacekeepers:
We need look no further than DC to see why local police departments have taken on the actions and attitudes of a military garrison. It's no secret the Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security have equipped many law enforcement agencies with just about everything an army needs to handle what they regard as a hostile and threatening civilian population. It's a vicious cycle. DC opens the borders while bombing the world. After the INEVITABLE domestic terror attack, a frightened population submits to the government adopting even more authoritarian measures to "protect" them. When will we learn that the machinery of empire is creating the very tyranny it's supposed to be protecting us from?

Home schooling accelerates in North Carolina

What can people do when the government institutions that were supposed to serve them now openly ridicule and work against them? Simple - just bypass them:

North Carolina’s home schools are growing at a record rate and are now estimated to have more students than the state’s private schools.

New figures from the state show there were 60,950 home schools in the 2013-14 school year, a 14.3 percent increase from the prior year and a 27 percent increase from two years ago. The state estimates there are 98,172 home-schoolers, marking the first time that North Carolina’s home-school enrollment has surpassed the number in private schools.

“If you’re dissatisfied with public education, you really have two routes,” said Kevin McClain, president of North Carolinians For Home Education, a statewide support group. “You can send your child to a private school – which is really expensive – or you can home-school. The economy means that, for many people, you home-school.”

Twenty-five years ago, there were about 2,300 home-schooled students in North Carolina. But concerns about school violence, lack of a religious focus and the large size of public schools have helped fuel home-school growth.
The government schools have mutated into indoctrination and social engineering centers focusing on drilling "proper thinking" into the heads of their victims students. And with yet another DC power grab in the form of "Common Core," this perversion of government schools will only get worse:

Think of home schooling as another baby step toward secession from a Marxist, multicult empire.

Major Democratic Donor Supports Southern Secession

The reason Congress is deadlocked on so many issues is because there's little national consensus on ANY issue these days. For example, just think how much diversity the rump USA could have if Southern and Western representatives didn't stand in the way of amnesty. So Guy Saperstein, a Democratic Party big shot, has an idea:

A major Democratic donor said he supports Southern secession because the South is “dumbing down” national politics, according to emails from a secret progressive Google group obtained by Media Trackers, a conservative Wisconsin news outlet.

In an email thread on Gamechanger Salon—a closed Google group of progressive organizers, reporters, and campaign apparatchiks—Guy Saperstein, a major Democratic donor and part owner of the Oakland Athletics baseball team, said he would support the South seceding.

“For more than 100 years, the South has been dumbing down national politics, tilting the country in a conservative direction, supporting militarism, all while demanding huge financial subsidies from blue states,” Guy Saperstein wrote in the emails. “It would be 100% fine with me if the South was a separate nation, pursuing its own priorities and destiny.”
But how could we Southerners survive without having San Francisco values imposed on us? And how could we get along without DC's perpetual warfare? Or a $7 trillion (and growing) debt? Or multiculturalism?

So please, Mr. Saperstein, don't do it! Please don't throw us in that briar patch! It would just be awful!

STUDY: Americans have virtually no impact on federal policy

News flash: The overgrown, over-centralized DC Empire is the tool of big business and big government, not the people it claims to serve. Who says that? Just some professor at Princeton University:

A startling new political science study concludes that corporate interests and mega wealthy individuals control U.S. policy to such a degree that "the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy."

The startling study, titled "Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens," is slated to appear in an upcoming issue of Perspectives on Politics and was authored by Princeton University Professor Martin Gilens and Northwestern University Professor Benjamin Page.
This is nothing new. We've been arguing for years that the central government is too remote, too big, and too self-serving to be truly responsive to over 300 million people. Reform? Don't make me laugh. DC has rigged the system so reform is impossible. Try starting a political party or even challenging the incumbent within an existing party, and you'll see how welcome dissent is.

There is an answer, however, and that is to scale down government so that it is local and responsive to its people. If they can manage it in Switzerland, surely we can do it here.
