America's rapid descent into Marxism

This, ironically, comes from Pravda:

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed ...

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe. ...

The proud American will go down into his slavery with out a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

The 12 Southerners saw Big Business and Big Government taking us down this road in 1930:

... the true Socialists or Communists ... are the Industrialists themselves. They would have the government set up an ecomomic super-organization, which in turn would become the government. We therefore look upon the Communist menace as a menace indeed, but not as a Red one; because it is simply according to the blind drift of our indistrial develpoment to expect in America at last much the same economic system as that imposed by violence upon Russia in 1917.

In other words, size does matter. Too much of it is just as bad as not enough. It's true of waistlines, business, and government.

Open letter to Bill Ayers

Since I'm so naive that I still believe people mean what they say, I sent this email to Bill Ayers at the University of Illinois at Chicago:

Dr. Ayers,

I recently read a story that said you signed a petition to President Obama asking that he not send a wreath to the Arlington Confederate Monument because you sign "any petition that comes across my computer."

That being the case, could you sign a petition requesting that an Alabama politician who desecrated the graves of American Veterans be prosecuted for his crime? Here's the link:

http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/AuburnConfederateFlag/

Thank you for your time.

Uh-oh! Now I'll be accused of communicating with a radical bomber! Where's that "un-send" key?

It’s increasingly evident that Obama should resign

Left and right are beginning to see the danger of a central government that claims the power to do "whatever is necessary" to protect "American interests," whatever that means, and the Bill of Rights be damned. But it's particularly refreshing to hear it from someone with leftist credentials as impeccable as Ted Rall:

Obama is useless. Worse than that, he’s dangerous. Which is why, if he has any patriotism left after the thousands of meetings he has sat through with corporate contributors, blood-sucking lobbyists and corrupt politicians, he ought to step down now — before he drags us further into the abyss.

I refer here to Obama’s plan for “preventive detentions.” If a cop or other government official thinks you might want to commit a crime someday, you could be held in “prolonged detention.” Reports in U.S. state-controlled media imply that Obama’s shocking new policy would only apply to Islamic terrorists (or, in this case, wannabe Islamic terrorists, and also kinda-sorta-maybe-thinking-about-terrorism dudes). As if that made it OK.

In practice, Obama wants to let government goons snatch you, me and anyone else they deem annoying off the street. Preventive detention is the classic defining characteristic of a military dictatorship.

Note to Mr. Rall: It's not just Obama. Your bitterly hilarious anti-Bush cartoons revealed an anti-authoritarianism many of us saw as profound, if unsettling, and your expectations for Obama were clearly buoyed by your distaste for Bush. But the truth is, it doesn't matter who occupies the seat of Elected Dictator of the DC Empire. The power that DC commands is inherently corrupting, and cannot be trusted in the hands of any individual. As long as DC has no limits, and no counters to its monopoly of economic and military force, it will continue to do what all empires do, and that is to focus on nothing but expanding and consolidating its ability to force others to its will. It will do so in the name of the most noble and glorious reasons: equality, justice, Homeland Security. And many will gladly surrender their freedom for those good ends.

Ultimately, there will be no more left and right, conservative and liberal. Such distinctions allow the Empire's subjects to enjoy places of refuge beyond the reach of state power, and that simply cannot be allowed. Loyalty to heritage, region, tradition, faith, and family will be swallowed up by a jealous emperor-god.

We even possess a glimpse of the ultimate result:

There will be no loyalty, except loyalty toward the Party. There will be no love, except the love of Big Brother. There will be no laughter, except the laugh of triumph over a defeated enemy. There will be no art, no literature, no science. When we are omnipotent we shall have no more need of science. There will be no distinction between beauty and ugliness. There will be no curiosity, no enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be destroyed. But always- do not forget this, Winston- always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face- forever. George Orwell, 1984

Wreaths win Obama praise from Sons of Confederate Veterans

Once again, many of us are cheering an illusory victory:

President Barack Obama, the nation’s first black chief executive, will be getting a thank you note from the Sons of Confederate Veterans for continuing a tradition of honoring the Confederate dead on Memorial Day. ...

The president’s actions pleased Chuck McMichael, commander in chief of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

“The president did very well by sending a wreath to honor American veterans of all types,” McMichael said. “He upheld the tradition of the office to which he was elected. I do intend to send him a thank you letter. This is the kind of thing that transcends politics.”

Let's not forget that Obama is a black belt in the Alinsky school of political theatre. While he plays the part of the Great Unifier and Healer, he’s pushing a radical agenda of centralized control over every aspect of our lives, not to mention the globalist campaign to eradicate our majority culture.

Part of the political theatre Obama performed on Memorial Day included placing a wreath at the memorial to black Union veterans. The article notes that one of the signatories to the petition to not place a wreath at the Confederate Monument was Orville Vernon Burton, who teaches Southern culture and history at Coastal Carolina. (I wonder how many professors of black studies oppose the NAACP?) Anyway, Burton pretty much sums up the final tally of this kerfuffle:

In the end, Burton said, he can accept Obama’s decision to send a wreath to both Union and Confederate monuments.

“It does represent the reconciliation of North and South,” he said.

Right. Like the way the Biafrans were reconciled to Nigeria. Or the Tamil Tigers to Sri Lanka. In other words, it represents conquest.

Feel the pride.

Wise Latina woman gets it right

While we need to vigorously debate Sotomayor's political and ethnic biases, as revealed in her outrageous statement about white males, as well as her membership in La Raza, we also need to avoid the bear traps along the way.

There's been a lot of noise about Sotomayor's ruling that the 2nd Amendment does not apply to the States. Here's what she said:

Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor ruled in January 2009 that states do not have to obey the Second Amendment’s commandment that the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed ...

The opinion said that the Second Amendment only restricted the federal government from infringing on an individual's right to keep and bear arms. As justification for this position, the opinion cited the 1886 Supreme Court case of Presser v. Illinois.

“It is settled law, however, that the Second Amendment applies only to limitations the federal government seeks to impose on this right,” said the opinion. Quoting Presser, the court said, “it is a limitation only upon the power of Congress and the national government, and not upon that of the state.”

Here's a typical reaction, from a pro-gun website:

Well, we knew the current president was an anti gunner but supporters said nO! This is evidence that we have our work cut out for us.

The libertarian Reason Online also cites that ruling in its warning about Sotomayor entitled, "Why libertarians—and everyone who believes in limited government—should worry about Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee."

Yes, we should worry, but not for her ruling on the 2nd Amendment. Truth is, Sotomayor was right -- the Bill of Rights was intended to limit the power of the Federal government. The Anti-Federalists who backed it as a precondition to joining the Union saw it as a line in the sand DC could not cross. It was Lincoln's Counter-Revolution against the American Revolution that re-wrote the Bill of Rights into a list of individual rights to be enforced by the central government -- which further advanced DC's power.

But this isn't just a fine point of history -- it's crucial to the cause of freedom. Submitting to Federal supremacy over the once-sovereign States will ultimately diminish both our culture and traditional liberty, no matter the imagined short-term gains.

Here's a powerful example of how this will work:

Former Bush administration solicitor general Theodore Olson is part of a team that has filed suit in federal court in California seeking to overturn Proposition 8 and re-establish the right of same-sex couples to marry. ...

I asked Olson about the objections of conservatives who will argue that he is asking a court to overturn the legitimately-expressed will of the people of California. "It is our position in this case that Proposition 8, as upheld by the California Supreme Court, denies federal constitutional rights under the equal protection and due process clauses of the constitution," Olson said. "The constitution protects individuals' basic rights that cannot be taken away by a vote."

Re-read that last line to see where an all-powerful Federal government will take us. Yes, we might be "allowed" to keep our guns a little longer, but we will have helped create an unaccountable, unstoppable, and increasingly authoritarian regime to which there is no appeal. Selling your soul might give you some immediate gratification, but there's a terrible price to pay down the road.

NAACP Branch Readies for Confederate Flag Fight

Somebody's bored. With all the political and financial power it commands, the NAACP could tackle the problem of jobs being taken from blacks by Third-World workers. Or help their people confront the crime problem that terrorizes black communities.

Or they could just throw their weight around to prove they still can:

Members of the Miami-Dade branch of the NAACP want the Confederate flag banned from the Homestead-Miami Motor Speedway, and they will meet Thursday to decide whether to boycott a NASCAR race slated there for November.

Kudos to Sons of Confederate Veterans Commander Chuck McMichael, who knows how to stand up to bullies:

"The bottom line is I don't think they should ban [Confederate flags] because there's nothing wrong with them. It's just people showing pride in their heritage."

Taken - in Roanoke

Actually -- and fortunately -- two women from Virginia were almost taken:

Four men, who federal agents say planned to hold two women for ransom, are locked up tight in the Roanoke City Jail. ... Court records claim the men “intended to kidnap the woman” who lives there and their next target was the “wife of a local business owner.” ... The first three were arrested by Roanoke County police April 6, for trying to force their way into a home.

The accused are Mohammed Guhad, Joshua Kasongo, Luke Elbino, and Anthony Muse. One's from Somalia, another from Rwanda, the third from Sudan, and the last is American. All three foreigners are here legally, in case you thought Third-World colonization was just fine as long as the paperwork's in order.


Here's an interesting coincidence: I saw "Taken" last night. Liam Neeson plays an ex-CIA agent who enters the dark underworld of modern-day white slavery when his daughter is kidnapped in Paris. He learns the culprits are Albanian immigrants, who actually use the "you're picking on us poor immigrants" card when he confronts them. Neeson's response was priceless:

"It's not because you're immigrants. It's because you're breaking the law. You come to this country, take advantage of this system, and think that just because we're tolerant, we are weak and helpless. Your arrogance offends me."

That's something a lot of people would love to tell outlaw immigrants -- and their enablers.

SPOILER ALERT!

Turns out Neeson's daughter has been sold to a filthy-rich (and mega-repulsive!) sheik. But he's not the ultimate bad guy either -- the girl had been kidnapped under the direction of a European who defends his actions as "Just doing business" !

Perfect. Isn't that what globalism is all about? All associations based on loyalty, tradition, place, and kinship are dissolving in the solvent of multiculturalism, Open Markets, and Open Borders. In their place is a flattened, nightmarish world that combines the open market and the jungle -- we're nothing to each other but buyers and sellers, or hunters and prey, depending on the kind of deal you're doing. Other people become either commodities, or obstacles. The universal wolf is unleashed, and the universal prey is unprotected. True equality.

Unfunded Pension and Health-Care Liabilities Exceeds $99 Trillion Dollars

What fringe, anti-government extremist said that? Some whacko who claims he's the head of the Dallas Reserve Bank.

Uh-oh ...

Racism linked to weight gain, Boston researchers say

Oh, dear -- some readers already think I made up a character named Ed Sebesta as an all-too-easy target, and now here I am passing on a story that claims white racism causes black fat cells to expand. But it's true -- I swear:

Perceptions of racism -- from being treated with suspicion in a store to unfairness in employment or housing -- can heighten stress levels and affect health, research has shown. A new study from Boston University links these smoldering signs of racism to weight gain in black women, suggesting a possible explanation for the their higher obesity rates compared to white women.

Yvette Cozier, an epidemiologist at the Slone Epidemiology Center at BU, led a survey of more than 43,000 women enrolled in the long-running Black Women's Health Study. Writing in the June issue of Annals of Epidemiology, she and her co-authors describe participants' reports on their weight, body mass index, and perceptions of racism.

I can hear the critics now: This is another "news" story that can't possibly be true. For one thing, everyone knows there's no racism is Bahh-ston. Besides, if this were true, how can we explain the number of overweight whites?

All joking aside, this is clearly another dishonest attempt to utilize "science" to support the ruling ideology. That ideology, conceived as a means to exert ever-expanding power over a gullible and increasingly docile population, says all people are equal, and all perceived inequality is explained by the racism of the white majority. Only the benign power of government can cure these injustices, so any opposition to expanding the government's reach is based on irrational hatred and ignorance.

There can only be one result of politically correct nonsense like this being peddled as science, and we have a pretty good historical example suggesting the consequences. Soviet researcher Trofim Lysenko cooked up a theory of agronomics that seemed to validate Marxist egalitarianism under Stalin. His theory that environment trumps genetics became official dogma, and dissidents often lost jobs, or worse. Lysenkoism set back Soviet agricultural production for decades.

Similarly, the DC empire's policies are determined by its official egalitarian ideology, which is sabotaging the education of millions of young people, as well as flooding our nation with Third-World colonists. It also provides the philosophical underpinning of DC's "affirmative action" home loan fiasco, as well as its aggressive foreign policy, which seeks to liberate the planet. And we all know how those have worked out for us.

By their fruits you shall know them.

The Happy US Torturer

"It's not torture when we do it."


I have GOT to get one of those instruments!

Hat tip to Rex!

Ed Sebesta unveils his Anti-Confederate flag

Behold:

You are getting sleepy...

Gotta hand it to Ed Sebesta. With the creation of his copyrighted "Anti-Confederate" flag, he has clearly reached new heights of -- something. Here's his post unveiling this latest creation. Visitors will agree this is exactly the kind of work we've come to expect from one of the left's most prolific and creative minds.

In the post, Sebesta lists his seven criteria for designing flags, then congratulates himself for having met all of them. Problem is, he forgot Flag Design Rule Number One, which says, "Do not create a design that induces migraines." Can you imagine this thing undulating in the wind? It would send hundreds into seizures, stunt the growth of livestock, and probably bring down small aircraft.

If you do visit Sebesta's site, you'll see that no comments are allowed. That prevents facts from getting in the way of the anti-white, anti-Southern dogma he writes.

But back to the "Anti-Confederate Flag." My secret spy at the Crawfish Compound sent me the drawing that Sebesta based his flag on. I'm not saying he copied it, but let's just say there may be some copyright infringement issues he needs to work out with the estate of Charles Schultz:
You fell for it again, Charlie Brown.

Georgia lawmaker wants to end ‘birthright citizenship’

This proposal bears watching. Is Representative Nathan Deal making an honest effort to reform a system that seems immune to reform -- or is it just a publicity stunt in his run for Governor? Border security activists like what they see:

Deal and his supporters say the 14th Amendment wording was never meant to automatically give citizenship to babies born to illegal immigrants.

“This is a sensible, overdue measure that closes a clause that was never meant to be a loophole,” said Bob Dane, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, which seeks tighter immigration restrictions.

And -- wonder of wonders! -- both the ACLU and La Raza ("Das Volk") oppose the idea. Whoda thunk it?

Quote of the day

"I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male ..." Sonia Sotomayor, Obama's Supreme Court nominee

Secession talk far from extreme

With the dollar plummeting, DC's spending out of control, and the prospects of taming the Federal Leviathan shrinking, secession is getting serious attention from more people, including political leaders. Here's Bob Barr on Texas secession:

In fact, the sky likely would not fall if some serious moves were made to break the stranglehold the federal government now maintains on virtually every aspect of state and local governments. There are, in fact, some examples starting to surface. The RealID program, with its mandate of a national identification card, has been brought largely to a standstill because of state opposition.

And at least a few states — Texas and South Carolina among them — are refusing President Barack Obama’s “stimulus monies” because of the strings attached.
Who knows? If Texas were to secede, the state might enjoy a significant inward migration of independent-minded citizens from other states, and precipitate a real boom in its economy.

Back in the old days, many farmers in the South headed for Texas for a new start. Over the doors of their deserted cabins, they'd carve the letters "GTT" to let neighbors know where they'd gone. A republic of limited, constitutional government would be an oasis of liberty. When Texans reclaim their independence, a lot of folks will pack up their bags, and pull out the pocket knives as they start to roll out.

Obama to lay Memorial Day wreath at Confederate marker

Curses! Obama is too smart to have made a PR blunder like this:

President Barack Obama will send a wreath to the Confederate Memorial at Arlington Cemetery on Memorial Day, rebuffing a petition from academics urging him to cease the decades-old tradition.

The petition, organized by Dallas-based historian Edward Sebesta, says signers want to end glorification of the Civil War and recognize the Confederacy's links to slavery.

Wait a minute -- did the reporter just call Sebesta an "historian"? Whoa ...

Pity -- Obama's refusal to lay a wreath at the Confederate Memorial would've made more people realize how alien and hostile his agenda is, and ignited a real opposition movement. Instead, Obama did what he's best at, posing as the fair-minded, impartial, and always rational leader, while orchestrating a radical plan to impose an all-powerful, socialistic system. The man understands the importance of the role of symbolism in political theatre, unlike his leftist core.

As I said -- what a pity.

The Bush-Obama Agenda

It's one thing for Obama to continue the Bush War on Terror and all the creepy stuff that goes with it, but does he have to use the same speechwriters? Apparently so.

When pundits agree

It's official -- Obama is giving us the third Bush administration. Here's the judgment of Paul Craig Roberts, a conservative:

Americans elected Obama because he said he would end the gratuitous criminal wars of the Bush Brownshirts—wars that have destroyed America’s reputation and financial solvency and serve no public interest. But once in office, Obama found that he was ruled by the military-security complex. War is not being ended, merely transferred from the unpopular war in Iraq to the more popular war in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Obama, in violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty, continues to attack “targets” in Pakistan. In place of a war in Iraq, the military-security complex now has two wars going in much more difficult circumstances.

And here's Charles Krauthammer, Neocon:
If hypocrisy is the homage that vice pays to virtue, then the flip-flops on previously denounced anti-terror measures are the homage that Barack Obama pays to George Bush. Within 125 days, Obama has adopted with only minor modifications huge swaths of the entire, allegedly lawless Bush program.

The latest flip-flop is the restoration of military tribunals. During the 2008 campaign, Obama denounced them repeatedly, calling them an "enormous failure." Obama suspended them upon his swearing-in. Now they're back.

They both agree Obama's continuing Bush's mission. The only difference is that the first condemns the War on Freedom Terror as counter-productive, and the other thinks it's neat-o.

Americans Take Jobs They Once Pooh-Poohed

This rotten economy is so bad, Americans are happy to find any kind of work:

This summer, the guy running the Tilt-A-Whirl at the carny might be a laid-off, middle-aged accountant instead of the usual bored college student. And the towel attendant at the pool might be from East Providence instead of eastern Europe.

All over the country, resorts and other summer businesses are getting swamped with applications from out-of-work Americans, many of them professionals. They are competing for jobs usually filled by young people and foreigners – making beds, serving brunch, mowing lawns, running concession stands and operating carnival games and rides.

It's just as bad in Australia -- except for one thing. Australians are having a tough time finding work there, too, but the Australian government is actually trying to protect its citizens by cutting back on the number of immigrants. The idea is to open more opportunities to native-born Australians. Whoa! (Think that could catch on here?) And here's an even more mind-blowing bit of news -- look who's doing it:

With a recession looming and the center-left government expecting unemployment to reach 7 percent by mid-2010, Immigration Minister Chris Evans said the intake of skilled migrants would be reduced by about 14 percent.

Australia goes to the polls in late 2010 and immigration has been a charged issue in past polls, particularly following economic downturn.

There's an old Southern saying: "Only Nixon could go to China." So isn't it interesting that it's a center-left government that's able to cut immigration to protect Australian jobs? The left can do it in the name of protecting "our working class," while conservatives seeking to curb runaway immigration would be vulnerable to the "r" word.

Of course, we don't have any choices in this country -- there's only one globalist party, and it stands for multi-culturalism, perpetual war, and Big Government to oversee both.

Latino gang accused of targeting blacks near LA

From America's bellwether state, California, we get this tale of the unexpected consequences of government-sponsored demographic revolution:

A Latino street gang waged a racist campaign to eliminate the city's black residents through attempted murders and other crimes, according to federal racketeering indictments unsealed Thursday.

The indictments detail attempted murder, kidnapping, firearms, narcotics and other charges related to attacks by the gang, which is predominantly Latino and mainly operates in Hawaiian Gardens, a city of about 15,000 in southeastern Los Angeles County ...

Of course, this story can't possibly be true. The reasons are so obvious, there's no need to list them here. However, since I'm paid by the column inch, I'll list them anyway. As EVERYBODY knows:

1) Only whites can be racist
2) Latinos do not commit crimes
3) The real threats in this country are Ron Paul supporters and border security activists

So any minute now, there'll be an apology from the editors of Breitbart for publishing this hate-filled story. Wait for it ...

Kill Bill!

The Texas Sovereignty Bill, that is. And we've identified the perp:

The much bally-hooed resolution to Congress was designed to serve notice on the federal government to "cease and desist certain mandates" and sought to repeal or prohibit certain federal legislation.

Just as Rep. Brandon Creighton, R-Conroe, was introducing the House resolution when Rep. Senfronia Thompson, D-Houston, raised the procedural point that shot it down.
She said that "states rights" was used as a banner for segregation and Jim Crow laws, but that was not her immediate concern.

Of course not. So why raise those red herrings, Senronia?
Thompson said she opposed the resolution because it, and others like it, are feeding movements that challenge federal authorities to regulate guns, taxes or fund needed state programs such as children's health and unemployment insurance.

"I don't want to see that used as a mechanism to block that assistance," Thompson said.

Yeah, let's not do anything to stop our magic money machine in DC. Who cares about the constitutionality of those give-aways?

I'm sure Rep. Thompson swore an oath to defend the Texas and US Constitutions. Does she not know the 10th Amendment is part of the US Constitution? How, then, can you not vote to reaffirm a section of the Constitution you're sworn to uphold?

Oh, that's right -- it's so we can keep getting all those free goodies our handlers in DC want to give us as long as we do what they say. I forgot.

Secessionist classic now online

Our Buckeye buddy Harold Thomas passes on a heads up that Alexander H. Stephens' book, A Constitutional View of the Late War Between the States, has been posted online. It's a great summary of the Constitutional and legal issues behind the principle of self-determination.

Obama Is Said to Consider Preventive Detention Plan

More change we can believe in:

President Obama told human rights advocates at the White House on Wednesday that he was mulling the need for a “preventive detention” system that would establish a legal basis for the United States to incarcerate terrorism suspects who are deemed a threat to national security but cannot be tried, two participants in the private session said.

In other words, Obama's going to cobble a more palatable excuse for bypassing the Bill of Rights than Bush did, so everything's just hunky-dory. Now we can all slip back into our colective coma.

4 Accused of Bombing Plot at Bronx Synagogues

While our baby sitters in Homeland Security kept their eyes on Ron Paul supporters and border security activists, four Muslim terrorist wannabes were plotting real crimes instead of thought crimes:

Four men were arrested Wednesday night in what the authorities said was a plot to bomb two synagogues in the Bronx and shoot down military planes at an Air National Guard base in Newburgh, N.Y. ...

Law enforcement officials identified the four men arrested as James Cromitie, David Williams, Onta Williams and Laguerre Payen, all of Newburgh. Some of the men were of Arabic descent, and one is of Haitian descent, according to law enforcement officials. At least three were United States citizens, according to officials. They are all Muslim, a law enforcement official said.

Of course, the District of Corruption's "solution" to incidents like this will be more Third-World immigration, and tolerance indoctrination for native-born Americans.

Let's bomb Dixie


One of the things I love most about this job is how the other side keeps making our case for us. Southern traditionalists, like other paleoconservatives, point out that the Western ideals of social and individual liberty are not simply abstract ideas, but intrinsic components of Western culture; the obvious corollaries being 1) Insisting other cultures adopt our cultural practices is wildly impractical (hence, our opposition to the "liberation" of Iraq), and 2) To preserve those standards of liberty, we must protect, preserve, and promote our culture (which is why we oppose Wall Street's Open Borders agenda).

The leftists and their Neocon blood brothers, through their deeds, as opposed to their rhetoric (which is only window dressing), clearly demonstrate they know we're right. Leftist attacks on Southern culture are always aimed at promoting socialistic and statist programs. Southern culture, and the history underlying it, stand in the way of their Big-Government, globalist agenda. That's why they hate us.

Ed Sebesta is a case in point (read this, for example, if you can bear it). Ed knows the South and its values stand in the way of his fuzzy notions of an egalitarian utopia. But the best this obsessed hater of all things Southern can manage is to gnaw at our culture. He has to depend on the kindness of more talented radicals to do anything of significance.

And in his latest project, he's once again recruited like-minded, but more formidable, allies. He's determined to pester President Obama, who clearly has no more pressing issues to occupy him, to stop the practise of laying a commemorative wreath at the Arlington Confederate Monument. Here's his petition to Obama, with a list of signatories at the bottom.

And check out this comment, which goes even further, calling for the destruction of the Confederate Monument.

How telling that one of the supporters of this petition is none other than Bill Ayers, the former leader of the radical leftist Weather Underground who bombed several buildings in the 60s and 70s. Ayers, you may recall, was famous for telling the New York Times in 2001 that, "I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough." When asked if he would "do it all again," he replied, "I don't want to discount the possibility."

Turns out he hasn't changed a bit. He is also quoted in Wikipedia as saying, "Maybe I'm the last communist who is willing to admit it." Wiki also says:

Larry Grathwohl, an undercover FBI agent who infiltrated The Weather Underground, claimed that Ayers wanted to overthrow the United States government. In an interview in January 2009, Grathwohl stated that:

"The thing the most bone-chilling thing Bill Ayers said to me was that after the revolution succeeded and the government was overthrown, they believed they would have to eliminate 25 million Americans who would not conform to the new order."

Clearly, Ayers knows the history of communist revolutions, and that such noble ideals must be imposed by force on stubborn, unworthy mortals. I have to admire his honesty.

And the Washington Times tells us that Ayers' latest book reveals his seething hatreds haven't dimmed in the least:

His new book, published by Third World Press, is "Race Course Against White Supremacy." The publisher's description on amazon.com summarizes the thesis "that white supremacy has been the dominant political system in the United States since its earliest days - and that it is still very much with us." Even though Mr. Obama enjoys approval ratings around 60 percent, Mr. Ayers insists that racism is the dominant cultural factor in America today. "It's very hard not to drag the chains of that history into the present," he said last week. His goal seems to be to keep America's minorities angry, which keeps America divided.

That's the greatest thing about being part of the Southern Cause -- we're truly honored by the character and actions of our enemies.

Long Island secession?

Time to go!

Texas Governor Rick Perry lit a fire when he suggested secession as the ultimate brake on DC's runaway spending. He's since tried to distance himself from his own words, but Perry's clumsy CYA dance hasn't dampened the excitement his comments sparked.

Now, that fire's lapping at the outskirts of New York City:

Secession fever is burning hotter among Republicans in the state Senate these days, leading GOP Sen. Andrew Lanza to hope that his plan for breaking Staten Island away from New York City will get a jump start.

Long Island state Sen. Kenneth LaValle and Assemblyman Fred Thiele Jr., both Republicans, this week called for a task force to study the feasibility of statehood for Long Island. Suffolk County legislators, including County Comptroller Joseph Sawicki, have endorsed the idea.

And for those of you who always object that this is not "real" secession, take a moment to consider the justification for in-state secession by one of its chief sponsors:

"Secession is certainly in the water," said Lanza (R-Staten Island), who plans to introduce his secession legislation in the Senate before the Albany session concludes at the end of June. "People are waking up and seeing the bill that they have to pay. More and more, they are seeing through the nonsense, that something's not right."

Sound familiar? Yes, something's not right, and things are only getting worse. Our rulers in DC are spending us into perpetual slavery, while claiming increasingly dictatorial power over us. At the same time, they continue to import cheap, exploitable labor, unconcerned about the resulting crime and demographic upheaval. Don't like it? Tough. That's something the little people will just have to deal with.

Fortunately, we have the means to deal with it now. As the Mayor of New York observed in 1861:

"When Disunion has become a fixed and certain fact, why may not New York disrupt the bands which bind her to a venal and corrupt master..." ?

Why not indeed?

Blue collar U.S. males lose more ground

Let's see if the weepy lefties have any compassion left over for this long-suffering demographic:

* U.S. male unemployment rate surges past national average

* Blue collar men take worst hit, wages keep falling

* Construction may recover; many assembly jobs are gone

I'll bet all liberal sympathy's been used up on illegal alien invaders.

Utah lawmakers form caucus to protect states' rights

What do you do with a gas-guzzling, rickety, dangerous clunker? At some point, you have no choice but get rid of it.

Precisely what more people say about the District of Corruption. DC's inept meddling continues because of its monopoly on power -- and the people's tacit consent. And every day, more of that consent dissolves. This report from Utah is just the latest example of that mood establishing itself within the machinery of local government:

Claiming that the federal government has long overstepped its bounds and fearing the worst is yet to come, a handful of Utah lawmakers is leading the charge to reclaim states' rights. ...

The Patrick Henry Caucus of the Utah Legislature will be launched later this week to promote legislation -- and legal challenges -- to rein in an "overwhelmingly aggressive federal government," said Rep. Ken Sumsion, R-American Fork.

More recently, state lawmakers complained about strings attached to so-called stimulus money, though in most cases that didn't stop them from taking it in the face of economic recession.

"I don't have a real good answer to that other than to say I think things are coming to a head now," said Holly Richardson, a prominent political activist and blogger who is helping to promote the new caucus.

Legislation from the caucus could include bills similar to a gun law passed in Montana that says guns made and purchased in that state don't fall under federal restrictions, she said.

"They see the wave of the future and the wave of the future is a whole lot of discontent and a whole lot of active people," she said.

Say it again, sister.

Equality at work

Who says the age of heroes is past? The new president of a politically connected globalist corporation bravely advocates diversity:

Boards composed entirely of white males can damage their businesses by indulging in narrow “groupthink”, says Helen Alexander, who is nominated on Monday as the first female president of the CBI employers’ group. ...

Ms Alexander said her message applied to all forms of diversity, including race and social background as well as gender.

“We have seen quite a lot of examples recently of what might be termed groupthink. It is clear that teams that have diversity within them don’t result in groupthink. People come at things in a different way and organisations have to take those into account,” she said.

Modern society routinely accepts the premise that race and sex influence how people think. As long as you use that premise to make a case for affirmative action, you can look forward to honors and promotions. But use it to question affirmative action, no matter the soundness of your research and documentation, and you and your entire argument will be exiled to Siberia along with Richard J. Herrnstein, Charles Murray, Hans Eysenck, and Arthur Jensen -- bad, bad men.

Obama Pushes to Close Black Farmers' Lawsuit

Good news! Obama found $1.250 billion in one of the White House sofas, and decided to use it to settle an old injustice:

President Obama has announced plans to include $1.250 billion in settlement funds in the 2010 budget to bring closure to the long-standing Black farmers’ lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the White House has announced. ...

A White House statement describes the sins of the U. S. government. "For decades in the last century, USDA had a spotted history of discriminating against black farmers in its loan programs and subsidy programs."

Which proves the Federal government is just chock-full of racists.

Federal strings prevent some state cuts

We're being hunted down by a relentless, soulless automaton that even The Governator can't stop:

As California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger tries to plug a budget hole that could swell to more than $21 billion next week, he's quickly discovering a universal truth: Uncle Sam controls the strings.

The Republican governor and state officials find themselves unable to cut spending as deeply as they'd like in some areas because of the potential loss of federal funds. Schwarzenegger wants to save $750 million by rolling back the state's Medi-Cal program, tightening eligibility and reducing benefits.

This is what will topple the top-heavy DC empire. All centralized systems seek to standardize everything, to impose a "one-size-fits-all" solution on every problem. To achieve that goal, they put all decision-making ability in one place. This inevitably squeezes local knowledge and local control out of the process of administration, which eventually makes the system self-asphyxiate.

The DC-mobile is hurtling down a curving mountain road, the brake pads have burned out, and the driver is lead-footing the accelerator. All the passengers can do is try to get out while they can.

Obama to Revive Terror Tribunals

As we've mentioned before, this should come as no surprise:

The president is now confirming that the tribunals will soon resume, with only a handful of cosmetic changes affording the detainees a modicum of control over their legal counsel and certain as yet unspecified restrictions on hearsay evidence.

The move was not a complete surprise, as sources inside the administration had been confirming the discussion for over a week. Yet the move and the decision by House Democrats to pull funding for the base’s closure suggest that the planned closure is unraveling on several fronts.

All the unconstitutional powers the Bush-Cheney regime claimed are now being used by a hard-core leftist Chief Executive. Good job, Bush supporters!

Fed can't account for $9 Trillion

I once spent three hours trying to track down a missing $35.00 in my checking account. Just how do you lose $9 trillion? Ask these fellas.

Waging war on the South

Let's start with this bit of leftist purple prose from, you guessed it, the Southern Poverty Law Center, in an article entitled "Southern hostility aimed at Latinos":

"We found a population under siege and living in fear -- fear of the police, fear of the government and fear of criminals who prey on immigrants because of their vulnerability," reported the Southern Poverty Law Center last month, after conducting a survey of 500 low-income Latinos -- including legal residents, undocumented immigrants and U.S. citizens in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina and Louisiana.

While that region is now home to the fastest-growing population of Latinos in the country, the SPLC's report noted that "many in Dixie aren't treating their new neighbors with any semblance of Southern hospitality."

Yep -- "a population under siege and living in fear" -- that's exactly what Latinos here in Charlotte are going through right now. As we speak, yahoos with Confederate Battleflags are lobbing mortar fire at the heart of the Charlotte barrio. Trebuchets loaded with boulders and lead pellets are lining up at the perimeter to break down the Latinos' last defensive walls. Any moment now ...

Meanwhile, here in the real world, the local Latin American Coalition receives $100,000 from Mecklenburg County taxpayers, as well as funds from the United Way. Strange way to lay siege to a population under fear.

And notice how we're referred to as "the Sunbelt" or the ultra-bland "Southeast" when the article's about economic growth in the South, where confiscatory taxes are (as yet) unknown, and private property is respected. But when it comes to race, we're once again "the South" or "Dixie."

Why is that? Because it's really the South and Southern culture that are under siege. Military strategist John Boyd identified three distinct elements in total war:

Moral Warfare: the destruction of the enemy's will to win, via alienation from allies (or potential allies) and internal fragmentation. Ideally resulting in the "dissolution of the moral bonds that permit an organic whole [organization] to exist." (i.e., breaking down the mutual trust and common outlook mentioned in the paragraph above.)

Mental Warfare: the distortion of the enemy's perception of reality through disinformation, ambiguous posturing, and/or severing of the communication/information infrastructure.

Physical Warfare: the destruction of the enemy's physical resources such as weapons, people, and logistical assets.

While General Sherman excelled at the third element, the globalists are determined to eliminate the greatest cultural barrier to Big Government by concentrating on the first two. Anything they and their flunkies in the media can do to disparage the South goes into print, or hits the airwaves. Whatever the medium, there's a constant drumbeat pounding the message that Southern culture, with its religious faith, love of family, and reverence for tradition, is an evil to be shunned and destroyed.

The Charlotte Observer echoed the same points in an editorial entitled, "Southern hospitality? Not for immigrants, it seems," with a header that proclaimed, "New report says hostile policies chill previous welcoming spirit."

In addition to applying Boyd's "Moral Warfare," the accusation that Southerners are not hospitable and welcoming to illegal aliens is an application of Saul Alinsky's Rule Number 4, which states:

"Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules." The besieged entity's very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.

In other words, make your enemy look like a hypocrite -- it's Alinsky's urban activist adaptation of Moral Warfare.

And speaking of General Sherman, check out how Miguel Perez ended this nastygram to Southerners:

Perhaps the time has come to march through Dixie again, in a new civil rights movement.

Oooh -- get that? If you questioned him about what he means, he'll say he only wants to see peaceful marchers demonstrate for the civil rights owed to all illegal aliens, whatever that means. But there's also that clever allusion to Sherman's March to the Sea.

Slick, huh? It's like a threat of violence against an entire people, except when it's aimed at Southerners, it's freedom of speech.

Obama Considers Detaining Terror Suspects Indefinitely

Here's what Obama is doing with the incredible power the Bush-Cheney regime bequeathed to him and all future Emperors Unitary Executives:

The Obama administration is weighing plans to detain some terror suspects on U.S. soil -- indefinitely and without trial -- as part of a plan to retool military commission trials that were conducted for prisoners held in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Not to worry -- this only applies to people the government suspects of plotting terror. If you haven't done anything wrong, such as supporting Ron Paul, or prefering State to Federal control, or opposing amnesty for illegal aliens, you've nothing to worry about.

True to his word, Obama is acting on his campaign promise to do away with Guantanamo. Instead, the entire United States will be a prison camp where undesirables can be tossed away forever without a trial. Now that's change you can believe in.

Huffington Post readers suggest Supreme Court nominees

Here are two -- um, interesting suggestions that say a lot about the way lefties think:

Michael McTague suggests that Obama nominate a civil rights activist par excellence: "How about Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law center? Let's seat a person who has spent his life fighting for our civil liberties."

Carol Jobson brings back a face familiar from Democratic Primary fights of yore. "I suggest Jerry Brown. Intelligent, articulate, very empathetic. Never afraid to tilt a windmills. Only downside - he's a white straight male."

Trying to think of a witty response -- thinking -- thinking ...

Surprise!

I must confess my endless amusement at the gnashing of teeth from what I call the "grass roots" left and right. Those are the principled, idealistic activists of both camps, as opposed to the power brokers who profit from the sweat of their respective foot soldiers.

Those poor soldiers are a little shell-shocked these days. And they feel betrayed.

For instance, many loyal troops from the left, who imagined they were trudging door to door, working phone banks, and stuffing envelopes to elect a "peace" candidate, are horrified at Obama's warmongering, which smells, tastes, and feels just like the warmongering of his predecessor. As dutifully (and cheerfully) noted by the American Conservative:

Smack in a middle of his latest FOX News torture apologia, ex-Veep Cheney says President Obama would be “hard put to find anyone better than Stan McChrystal” to lead the forces in Afghanistan.

Oh, and for good measure, Max Boot and Charles Krauthammer approve, too.

Here's The Progressive weighing in on Obama's latest Bushian maneuver:

Obama has just made a terrible choice in his new commander for Afghanistan.

By choosing Lt. Gen. Stanley McChrystal, Obama shows how indifferent he is to the serious allegations that have swirled around McChrystal, a darling of the Bush-Cheney regime. ...

And, according to Seymour Hersh, McChrystal was the guy who was running Cheney’s assassination squads. From 2003-2008, McChrystal headed the Joint Special Operations Command, which Hersh called “an executive assassination wing” that reported directly to Cheney’s office.

Death squads are supposed to be confined to ultra-right juntas, yet here's the US doing the same thing -- and one of its enablers is being rewarded under a liberal Democratic administration! Why are the despised Neocons applauding? What happened?

Then there are the ongoing revelations about Nancy Pelosi, that San Francisco liberal, giving tacit support to the Bush-Cheney torture program. As liberal Robert Scheer wonders in an article entitled "Pelosi the Enabler""

Why did she not speak up, or if it were a matter of a lack of reliable information, demand an accounting from the executive branch, as befits a leader of the loyal opposition in Congress? ...

By acquiescing to the cover-up of unpleasant truths in the treatment of prisoners, Pelosi contributed to the betrayal of the ideal of public accountability that is the bedrock of our system of governance, which Congress is charged with protecting.

Then there are those poor, deluded souls in the right-sided trenches of the grass roots who can't figure out why their Neocon allies are distancing themselves from the social and economic conservative goals that once defined middle-class activism. The answer, of course, is because those goals were only the bait for the real Neocon agenda. So when David Horowitz advises his readers to "cool it" in their criticism of Obama, it's because Obama is championing the only project that really mattered, which is keeping the military-industrial complex humming along. As I commented at the time, what's a little socialism among war supporters?

Even more pathetic is the noisy split between the grass roots conservatives and Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs. Once united behind Bush's wars, these former comrades-in-armchairs have gone their separate ways, with Johnson condemning those who disagree with him on immigration reform, religion (he's apparantly an agnostic), and the preservation of Western culture.

All of this is no surprise to small-government paleos and Southern conservatives. Unlike the post-Trotskyite ideologues who call themselves "Neocons," we reject highfaluting theories and instead see the continuation of a beloved tradition, our inherited culture, as the focus of our loyalty. We knew Obama (or McCain, for that matter) offered nothing but the continuation of the same Big-Government agenda Bush and his Neocon enablers had crammed down our throats for the past eight years. It's not that we're psychic; we just know how empires work, and that the bureaucracy in DC is an imperial control mechanism. And we knew that Obama was just the newest hired hand of the DC empire.

One of the tests of a theory is its predictive value, and I'd say current events have validated the predictive value of Southern conservatism.

We think we've found a pattern

See if you can uncover the root cause of all three:

Minority Gains in Homeownership Erode

No Child Left Behind fails to improve minority scores

Latinos overwhelmingly support liberal Democrats

If you guessed racism, you're right! It's always lurking around every social phenomenon. And the really neat thing is that it's impossible to disprove.

If at first you don't secede, try, try again

Now here's a breath of fresh air -- no, certainly not the title, for which the Old Rebel offers complete forgiveness -- but for this rare, objective look at the renewed interest in self-government in Georgia. (The one on the Atlantic, not the one on the Black Sea.) What WILL the media think of next? Check it out:

A recent Daily Kos poll of 600 likely Georgia voters shows that 32 percent of Republicans would now be in favor of Georgia seceding from the United States. These results have been reported by the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, WSB radio and various political blogs. ...

Georgia’s resolution was spawned by the firearms debate, and was passed to ensure that the only crimes that can be prosecuted by the federal government are those cited in the Constitution: slavery, treason and piracy.

SR 632 may be Georgia’s version of a 10th Amendment resolution like those many states passed in conjunction with tea parties staged in April to protest President Obama’s policies. The measure revolves around the claim that anything not mentioned in the Constitution is reserved for the states.

You know what's great about this article? It reports the facts about the accelerating interest in secession WITHOUT the usual, dismal, and stale cut-and-paste denunciation of unapproved thought, which usually goes kinda like, "But Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center says anyone who talks about seceding is a bad, bad person who wants to whip slaves and kick puppies."

Whoa. Honest reporting instead of politically correct preaching. This could turn things around for newspapers.

Anti-Southern, anti-gun, anti-freedom

Hear that? It's the sound of our freedom dying from a thousand cuts:

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., has sponsored H.R. 2159, the Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009, which permits the attorney general to deny transfer of a firearm to any known or suspected dangerous terrorist. The bill requires only that the potential firearm transferee is "appropriately suspected" of preparing for a terrorist act and that the attorney general has a reasonable belief that the gun might be used in connection with terrorism.

Gun rights advocates, however, object to the bill's language, arguing that it enables the federal government to suspend a person's Second Amendment rights without any trial or legal proof and only upon suspicion of being dangerous.

Well, ok, this would be much more than one of thousands of tiny cuts -- this would be a death blow to our liberty, as well as our right to defend our homes and families. This bill, if passed, would grant our rulers in DC the power to suspend the gun rights of any person it wishes, for whatever reason. And in light of the recent revelation of the role the Southern Poverty Law Center played in determining that conservative activists are enemies of the State, it's pretty easy to guess what sort of reasons might qualify.

And isn't it interesting that this authoritarian proposal comes from none other than Peter King of New York, who once said of Southern congressmen:

"... they are typical of the South - a union-hating, ignorant, hillbilly, revival-meeting attending bunch that represents everything un-American."

King's anti-gun agenda is something his fellow Northeastern liberals applaud, as this Newsday blog illustrates:

In this region, gun control is the equivalent of mom-and-apple-pie. So much so that -- for example -- Republican Rep. Peter King seems to have a more restrictive policy on firearms than recently appointed Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand ...

The Empire's War on Freedom comes down to winning the War against the South, and by extension, against all of middle America. Our enemies know it, and we're just now beginning to grasp it.

Quote of the day

"The more they look at it, the more commissions don’t look as bad as they did on Jan. 20." Unnamed official, on Obama's decision to deny rights to those accused of being "unlawful combatants."

After all, that particular legacy of the Bush administration might come in handy for silencing those right-wing extremists who want to enforce existing immigration law, or oppose abortion, or even think they have a right to self-defence.

Secession: It's a Southern thing

For now, at least. In response to a Daily KOS poll, there were significant regional differnces in response to the question, "Do you think the state that you live in would be better off as an independent nation or as part of the United States of America?" Secession clearly strikes a chord in the hearts of Southerners, as the Washington Monthly reports:

In the Northeast, there's near unanimity about staying in the United States. The numbers are nearly as strong in the West and Midwest. But in the South, only 61% expressed support for keeping the union together, 9% believe their state would be better off as an independent nation (the other regions were below 5%), and 30% aren't sure.

The article finds these differences "intriguing," but doesn't attempt to analyze why they exist. Here are a couple of suggestions.

Northeastern domination is the dirty little secret of American politics, a fact that was established by the sword in 1865. For example, for the first time in American history, eight of the nine justices attended one of only two law schools: Harvard or Yale.

Meanwhile, the New York Federal Reserve continues to pretty much control policy for the other 11 regional banks.

Same-sex "marriage," a product of the "enlightened" Northeast, is coming our way, like it or not. And yes, we will have to recognize that chimera as if it were the norm.

Add to that the growing realization that an oversized superstate with unnaturally centralized control is doomed to increasingly frequent government intervention, and eventually, to total societal breakdown as all initiative and freedom to act become the sole property of a self-serving bureaucracy. As Thomas Jefferson observed, "Were we directed from Washington when to sow and when to reap, we should soon want bread."

Such a state of affairs is fast approaching. Can we take pre-emptive action to prevent it, or do we wait until the landslide to rebuild on a more human, more local, more responsive scale? That's the question of the hour, and the growing interest in secession is the clearest sign that more people grasp what the real problem is. Pray for wisdom.

Update from Oklahoma!

The State of Oklahoma has recently taken bold steps to:

- Display the Ten Commandments

- Stop illegal immigration

- Protect gun rights

And -- to affirm the principle that underlies the other three measures, Oklahoma has also passed a State Sovereignty resolution -- DESPITE the governor's veto! This once again demonstrates that the ONLY way the people are going to assert their rights and protect their interests is through local government.

I'm ready to move to Oklahoma -- that is, as soon as they replace that useless governor.

SPLC advising local Hispanic group

Scenario One:

Immigrants desiring nothing more than to become part of America make their way to their new country, where they learn the language and culture, find jobs, buy homes, and contribute to their adopted homeland.

Scenario Two:

Colonizers determined to recapture lands they believe belongs to them force the natives to adjust to the new dominant culture.

Scenario Two could never happen, of course. Unless, that is, the invading colonizers received help from powerful organizations waging perpetual war against the natives, all the while pretending the colonizers are only keeping alive the noble tradition of Scenario One.

No one would fall for a scam like that, would they? Actually, it's happening in Alabama:

A civil rights group is working with local Hispanic residents who want bilingual signs for Albertville businesses.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is “serving in an advisory capacity” to La Voz de la Comunidad, according to Jose Cardenas.

Cardenas is an outreach paralegal for SPLC’s Immigrant Justice Project. He released the statement Thursday that said members of the group — whose name translates to the Voice of the Community — want businesses in Albertville to put Spanish on their English-language signs. ...

The Montgomery-based SPLC monitors what it calls “hate groups” and works to teach tolerance. SPLC publishes “Hatewatch,” a page on its Web site that chronicles possible hate crimes.

Did you catch that? Those last two sentences imply that if you oppose the SPLC, you're probably guilty of a "hate crime." Better order that bilingual sign now.

And check out this prophetic observation from one of the colonizers' supporters:

“We think it’s a chance for Albertville to become a city of the future,” said Anita Stancil, a member of La Voz de la Comunidad, or the Voice of the Community.

No doubt she's right. But then, is that the kind of future the people of Albertville want? Or does it matter what they want?

Another stereotype in the news

ACORN charged in voter registration fraud. More mindless hate against a valiant civil rights group by that hateful publisher of hate facts, the New York Times.

Illegal aliens cost us

Of course, that depends on the definition of "us." The ruling elite enjoy the benefits of the Wall Street Journal's "Open Borders" agenda, while American workers and taxpayers shoulder the costs, as this blogger points out:

The nature of any social system is that it must benefit someone in order to continue to survive. The systems benefitting no one eventually collapse. The question then becomes: Who is benefitting?

Average Americans don’t benefit from the presence of illegals in our country. Only business interests and Democrats who see illegals as new voters benefit from this invasion.

Great summary of information compiled by FAIR.

Is Joe Biden an amiable dunce?

I vote no. There's nothing amiable about vice-messiah Biden.

Uproar in D.C. as Same-Sex Marriage Gains

The DC council just approved a bill re-affirming the "same-sex" marriages recognized by other states. Marion Barry, the former mayor, now serving on the council, voiced the deep opposition to the homosexual agenda felt by an overwhelming majority of religious blacks:

"All hell is going to break lose," Barry said. "We may have a civil war. The black community is just adamant against this." ...

"I am representing my constituents," said Barry, who later told reporters that "98 percent of my constituents are black, and we don't have but a handful of openly gay residents."

Other black leaders were even more outraged at the DC council's vote:

"We need a new council. They are destroying our youth," a same-sex marriage opponent, Paul Trantham of Southeast Washington, shouted in the hallway during the ruckus. "Every minister who fears God should be here. This is disrespectful to the nation's capital. There is nothing equal about same-sex marriage."

This week, more than 100 black ministers signed a letter to Fenty opposing the measure.

The rift between Christian blacks and the homosexual lobby has been widening for some time, and this latest clash can only expand it even more. This is one fight that bears close attention, for it's indicative of the future.

Al Qaeda exporting jihad with a hip-hop vibe

Tapping in to the power of diversity:

The latest video from Somalia's al Qaeda-backed Al-Shabaab wing is as slickly produced as a reality TV show but with a startling message -- complete with a hip-hop jihad vibe.

Experts think Abu Mansoor al-Amriki, dubbed "The American" by al Qaeda, speaks in the Somali video.

"Mortar by mortar, shell by shell, only going to stop when I send them to hell," the unidentified voice raps on the video, which runs at least 18 minutes.

Pretty catchy lyrics, but the video needs a good editor. Too long for the attention span of your typical American teen.

But then, the target audience isn't the aimless globalist blob our kids are turning into. These videos are aimed at young immigrants in the DC empire who're so unassimilated, they still identify with the old culture. Why shouldn't they? There's nothing in America to assimilate to -- and the jihadis know it:

The video also shows a man reported to be Abu Mansoor al-Amriki, dubbed "The American" by al Qaeda. He apparently is now in Somalia training and counseling Somalis from North America and Europe. He speaks in American English.

And yes, the jihadis have successfully recruited from disaffected Somali youth in the US before. You always go fishing where you've caught the big ones.

Anti-Tancredo protester's grant on the line

Looks like denying free speech and disorderly conduct may endanger the prestigious scholarship of one the students who disrupted Tom Tancredo's speech at the University of North Carolina. According to the Raleigh News and Observer, the Morehead-Cain foundation is still investigating Haley Koch's actions. Good.

Wouldn't it be poetic justice if this globalist bully lost her $140,000 scholarship and had to compete with illegal aliens for menial jobs to pay for tuition?

(Of course, that isn't going to happen, since the article indicates her parents are well-educated and well-to-do. Typical, isn't it, how multiculturalism is the pet project of the affluent?)

But what caught my eye was this little aside in the News and Observer article:

On the day of her arrest, Haley Koch received the 2009 Undergraduate Excellence Award from the APPLES Service-Learning program for her work organizing United with the Northside Community Now. UNC-NOW works to preserve the identity of the historically black neighborhood north of downtown Chapel Hill.

So -- Koch thinks it's a good thing for historically black communities to want to preserve their identity. And just how does her group go about doing that?

As I always endeavor to do, I'll let the other side speak for themselves. Here's the UNC-NOW mission statement:

United with the Northside Community Now (UNC-NOW) is a community-university organization made up of a wide range of community members who are committed to confronting the economic and social trends of gentrification and displacement in the historically African-American neighborhoods of Chapel Hill/Carrboro ...

Yeah, when upper middle-class whites refurbish and move into homes in black neighborhoods, they're displacing the traditional black residents. That's why many blacks -- and guilty whites -- see gentrification as a threat to black culture.

Also interesting is how UNC-NOW's program for preserving and promoting traditionally black neighborhoods echoes the League of the South's program for promoting Southern farms and small businesses. Again, from the UNC-NOW web site:

3. Train and employ local youth and community members
4. Support local businesses in their efforts to sustain a vital economic life.
5. Spearhead property tax relief in traditionally low wealth neighborhoods
6. Require strict adherence to the application review process for new developments in or near the Northside, Pine Knolls, Rogers-Eubanks and Ridgefield communities.

Does UNC-NOW have the right to pursue such an agenda? If so, does the League have the same right?

Report all anti-Obama activities!

Uh-oh! They're on to us. And -- oh, no! -- they have a web site:

This is a place where one can post and report on all activities, web sites and or blogs that would be considered erroneous, slanderous or detrimental to the newly elected President of the United States.

Apparently, there's no distinction between knowingly lying about Obama and dissenting against his globalist agenda.

There are those who go under the disguise of patriotism who seek to undermine the President by reporting false allegations as truth and there by [sic] starting a [sic] incendiary viral campaigns [sic] based on lies and innuendo.

This site is dedicated to exposing all of them. Bringing those guilty of playing with the fire of deceitful comments out of their secret little lairs, the forums where they think they are safe to discuss their hate mongering and racist ways and expose them to the light of day for all the public to see. [sic]

Whoa! That last sentence fragment sparkles with so much bombast and self-righteousness, combined with Jethro Bodine-style grammar, that I wonder if Ed Sebesta has adopted yet another alias. Let's look at the site's mission statement:

A site dedicated to the preservation of truth, justice and the American way. Where true American citizens can monitor and report all anti-obama activities taking place on the world wide web.

Sounds like the kind of web site Superman would run if he'd dropped out of Smallville High School. (Question: Does refusal to capitalize the surname of the POTUS constitute an insult against him? Hmmm ....)

And check out this blood-curdling warning to all those miscreants plotting their "anti-obama activities" from their "secret little lairs":

They are extremely scared of this, so please for the sake of the American way, join our cause and root out these sites and post them for all the world to see.

Yes, we are scared. The horror. The horror.

CNN Poll: North-South gap on gay marriage

The actual headline says "CNN Poll: Generational gap on gay marriage," but the clearest division is between the South along with the rest of the Heartland and the ruling elites in New England, as the CNN story makes explicit:

Three states, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Iowa, currently allow same-sex marriages. A law passed by Vermont law makers that makes gay and lesbian marriages legal takes effect in the state later this year. Lawmakers in Maine and New Hampshire are close to passing a similar bill.

"It's not surprising that three Northeastern states are the first to take this step," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "A majority of people who live in the Northeast say they approve of same-sex marriage. Solid majorities in the South, Midwest and West all oppose gay marriage."

Just one more good reason for letting these people go their own way without dragging us along with them.

Bank "stress tests" just a PR stunt

Not only are these tests' actual purpose to calm down depositor-peasants, they were cobbled together by the very financial wizards who got our economy in its present mess. This analogy to Homer Simpson-style nuclear doofuses regulating themselves is as jarring as it is illuminating.

300 PC students silently protest Tom Tancredo

That headline pretty much tells the story, doesn't it? Yes, the "PC" refers to "Providence College," but there's no mistaking the dual meaning. In fact, you don't get more mindlessly politically correct than this:

The students -- who wore multicolored paper-plate masks, which they said represented their diversity -- stood in silence as Tancredo started speaking against "the cult of multiculturalism."

What perfect symbols of the anti-human diversity ideology -- uniform masks made from mass-produced, disposable paper plates to hide the identity and heritage of each foot soldier demonstrating for the Wall Street Journal's Open Borders crusade against the historical nation-state. These students have swallowed whole the notion that their generation has uncovered the ultimate value of "diversity," which somehow trumps community, heritage, tradition -- and the free exchange of ideas. They may believe they're showing off their righteousness, but are only displaying their indoctrination. Truly sad.

Does State think Texas is a foreign country?

Verrrry interesting. From Hot Air:


No, that isn't a typo. To quote that great philosopher Gomer Pyle, "Makes ya think, don't it?"

Hat tip to Jeff of Texas!

Dissing the Declaration

The government supremacists are still wringing their manicured hands over the renewed interest in secession. A Daily KOS poll revealed support for secession in other Southern states comparable to that in Texas, with nearly a third of Georgia Republicans opting for restoring self-government. That prompted this snarky little comment:

Note to the teabaggers: two-thirds of Republicans in one of the more conservative states in the nation love their country and don't want to secede.

(Question: Are these people NEVER going to quit making that adolescent joke about the Tea Party protests? Really.)

The assumption in that comment is that anyone who wants to break away from the control of the overgrown bureaucracy in DC does not love his country.

But the Kossacks have got it backwards: It's DC we want to escape, not the nation we know and love. Love of country isn't the same as obedience to DC. The central government has mutated into an alien, occupying force determined to reconstruct the country we love through total government control of the economy, education, and thought. It is shoving demographic revolution down our throats, and branding us as "racist" if we object. At the same time, practising our basic rights of free speech and dissent are now viewed as evidence of disloyalty and "extremism."

That's why secession has roared back into the marketplace of ideas, not as a repudiation of our beloved culture and nation, but as the only means of holding on to what's left of them.

Does Goldman Sachs Rule the World?

The Golden Rule is still the supreme law of the land:

As the New York Times explained last October in a must-read 4 page article, the presence of Goldman Sachs alumni in virtually all of the top government financial posts is so great that their team is dubbed "Government Sachs":

Indeed, Goldman’s presence in the [Treasury] department and around the federal response to the f inancial crisis is so ubiquitous that other bankers and competitors have given the star-studded firm a new nickname: Government Sachs.

The threat to our liberty and livlihood is profound and well-documented. Thomas Jefferson once warned:

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

And Andrew Jackson, in his veto of the Bank of the United States in 1832, denounced a national bank as a tool that would be used for "the advancement of the few at the expense of the many." In that same veto, Jackson warned, "Is there no danger to our liberty and independence in a bank that in its nature has so little to bind it to our country?"

Of course, "the advancement of the few at the expense of the many" could've been the subtitle of the various bail-out bills.

King of the Hate Business

Alexander Cockburn, a left-of-center writer whose forceful critiques of the illegal and immoral invasion of Iraq are essential reading, has written this little beauty of an expose on Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center. This, too, should be essential reading:

What is the arch-salesman of hate mongering, Mr. Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center, going to do now? Ever since 1971, U.S. Postal Service mailbags have bulged with his fundraising letters, scaring dollars out of the pockets of trembling liberals aghast at his lurid depictions of hate-sodden America, in dire need of legal confrontation by the SPLC. Nine years ago, Ken Silverstein wrote a devastating commentary on Dees and the SPLC in Harper's, dissecting a typical swatch of Dees' solicitations. At that time, as Silverstein pointed out, the SPLC was "the wealthiest civil rights group in America," with $120 million in assets.

As of October 2008, the net assets of the SPLC were $170,240,129.

"We want to respect their sovereignty, but..."

That was Obama's response to Pakistan's outrage toward US drone attacks that have taken civilian lives on Pakistani soil. Meaning of course, that the US is going to continue violating Pakistan's territorial integrity and mulching its people whenever it damn well feels like it.

We can easily imagine Obama's positions on other explosive issues:

"We respect the Second Amendment, but ..."

"We don't want a socialist economy, but ..."

"We respect the conservative opposition's right to dissent, but ..."

And so on. Unlike Bush, Obama will smile and appear to apologize for his continuing interventions into others' lives. Again, domestic and foreign policy flow from the same spring.
