      We could, but that cuts to your other point about conservatives being individuals. Good thought btw.
    Egad man, how? I know you have been collecting facts and proving your theories, but have you been offering a course on counter-Prog tactics? I'm talking about countering such tactics that previously would charge you with falsehoods, shout nonsense just to drown you out, and suddenly change schedules and venues so you don't even get to attend or be published. Short of training snipers I mean.

    thanks a bunch.

    I was NOT deriding your tireless work, which is far in excess to my own. I was bemoaning knowing of a tactical training program where more people could do the kind of things needed to derail the Progs tactic in advancing their agenda. Being filled with facts and knowledge and eloquence clearly is not enough.

    And I surely hope you continue to make gains. The truth does matter.

    The thing is, those newly informed minor bureaucrats have to be able to keep their jobs. They WILL run into apparatchiks who will softly say things like "you're smart enough to know which side is the right one."

    And should they fail to respond "well" to such suggestions, they will hear something like "I thought you were smart" at their exit interview.

    The CAGW climate scam is more reliant on their Soviet-Style media (SSM) than on the actual number of climate scientist who are listed in the "consensus." But that doesn't mean that climate scientists can be assured they'll get their next research grant if they don't bow in the right direction when called on to do so. Same with Forestry Service and Interior bureaucrats. It's one thing for them to have their eyes opened by you, entirely another to buck the nefarious system that seeks to grows the department they work in (with them or without them).

    We live in much nastier times.

    Thanks Don. I see that one of the key attributes to counter the strategies is to have a group committed to fighting the facilitators.

    My being an often irascible and stand-alone individual, even had I known of such countermeasures and practiced them, it might not have worked even with prearranged and practiced allies.

    Apparently something similar to my failures have been true for many others as well, because the Progs have advanced far too well despite this knowledge. So? How often has it worked? Seeing the power of the GOPe and the weakness of conservative pubbies, I'm surmising: not yet enough.

    The Collectivists work well because they are NOT individualists first. They want power, individuals mostly want to be left alone, tending only get involved when push comes to shove. I always wished I knew what path worked to get more of us to take a long view so as to necessitate involvement. I regret I gave into despair after many failures. I am to blame for those failures. They were mostly due to my inability to build such needed blocs before confrontations with the enemy.

    And now, I'm old and tired. I wish it were not so, but even when young I tended to write with a Jeremiad tone. My failings need not be those of the next generation, and I hope it learns from errors such as mine. I surely wish you better success.

    I sincerely hope you can convince younger people to do what I could not persevere at.

    One more thing though. This discussion of counter tactics was devised before the Left started to deploy more fascistic types. In this day of shameless lying, the "knock-out" game and jihadi-like masked thugs, all but feigned niceties have been pretty much disappeared. Any countering group need to have strong security even as it attempts to appear unconnected to each other, else they are apt to be targets as individuals going out the door (and maybe even on a meeting floor).

    We have arrived at trying times.

    When was the last time your read your conclusion at that link? Have you ever considered backing off a bit on your condemnation of "we?" Because so few of us individuals have the power you imply to actually even slow the collective.

      This problem with electrical energy is but one of many markets infested with the NRDC, which is involved in everything from water to "air quality." Hopefully, the scope and depth of this story has convinced you that the problem is systemic. The NRDC is but one of many such hired guns for the foundations playing the great mercantilist game. So to start, just remember: We asked for this.

      We asked for this when we invested in government the power to regulate instead of holding our judges and representatives accountable. We asked for this when we demanded collective and coercive powers over private property. We created the demand when we did not realize that failure to pay our brethren for the environmental services we were demanding is what led them to race to the bottom. We did this to ourselves when we did not seek means to verify the truth, instead of allowing the media to herd us around like frightened lemmings. We did this to ourselves when we bought into the idea of compulsory government education. We did this to ourselves when we instituted an income tax that violated once almost-sacred standards of individual privacy. We did this to ourselves when we instituted regulatory power. We did this to ourselves when we instituted the legislative power to define tax-exemption in a system of laws supposedly delivering "equal protection." We did this to ourselves when we forced insurers to charge the same price for coverage without regard to customer behavior.

      In short, this problem started when we began hiring bureaucrats and police to force others to do our collective will, instead of forcing our representatives to abide by the principles to which we supposedly ascribe: limited government, unalienable rights, private property, and free enterprise, all operating under a system of simple laws adjudicated by courts with fully empowered and competent juries. It is only when we stop meddling with families and take the reins of our government while simultaneously respecting its limits that this mess will truly begin to change. It starts in the individual heart, hearing the limits we were given on Mount Sinai, and learning to see them in the faces of our brothers and sisters. It is only then that we can stop wasting the vast bulk of our work in trying to control each other. It starts in the heart, which hears from the mind. So if this message has meant anything to you, I ask that you teach it.

    It's been more than a dozen years since you wrote that C_O. You mentioned Hegelian and other influences in another comment today or yesterday. How much of that "we did this to ourselves" was in actually foisted upon us by something akin to the Dephi Technique? And who amongst us knows what countermeasures work against such subterfuge and can teach it? I don't know of anyone; do you?

    And maybe I ought to have written "could have taught it," because I'm pretty sure we are beyond the point of solving any of our problems pedagogically.

  • Here are the Republicans who voted against John Boehner for speaker

    Avoiding_Sulla to Randy Larsen; Carry_Okie

    I don’t know how accurate this is. Is it worth discussing? If it is so, since this is NOT November any longer, we shouldn’t we be expecting (McClintock’s words) “At any meeting, a member may put a no-confidence motion to the conference and, if adopted, set the stage for a House vote to vacate the office and elect a successor” from doing this soon?

    Who’ll be the whip Tom?

    Statement by Congressman Tom McClintock On the Election of the House Speaker
    January 6, 2015 10:42 AM

    Statement by Congressman Tom McClintock
    On the Election of the House Speaker

    January 6, 2014

    I am disappointed in Mr. Boehner’s leadership of the House and have expressed my concerns on many occasions. But shifting this decision from the House Republican Conference to the House Floor opens a Pandora’s Box.

    The election of the House Speaker is a decision that is made by the House majority caucus. That decision is then enacted through a formal vote on the House floor by the unanimous action of that majority.

    The Republican majority voted at its November meeting to re-elect John Boehner as Speaker after no member stepped forward to challenge him. Some have suggested now shifting that decision from the House Republican Conference to the House floor, where 29 Republicans can combine with Democrats to thwart it.

    Conservatives should beware. On its worst day, the collective judgment of the Republican majority is much more conservative than that of the overall House membership. Shattering Republican unity in the election of Speaker is not likely to end with a more conservative alternative, but rather with a coalition of the most liberal House Republicans and House Democrats.

    This happened in the California Assembly in 1994. Dissident Republicans broke with the Republican majority on the vote for Speaker, enlisting the votes of minority Democrats in exchange for a wholesale transfer of power. Though voters had elected a Republican majority, this coalition effectively gave Democrats control of the Assembly.

    The proper place to contest a Republican speaker is in the House Republican Conference. At any meeting, a member may put a no-confidence motion to the conference and, if adopted, set the stage for a House vote to vacate the office and elect a successor. However, this requires every member of the Conference to respect the collective decision – a long-enduring precedent that would be destroyed by the proposed strategy. I cannot support it.

    Thanks for the feedback. Looking over this thread, few people are aware of that. Even the title of this thread starter ignores the ramifications of his guilty plea. Look at how many think he was convicted not that he plead guilty. And sadly, that included me.

    Seeing as how McCain/Feingold was a RINO/Dem bipartisan effort, you can see why I that coalition lives the SKUNC acronym. They are simply anti-constitutional, and Dinesh just gave them a precedent they did not deserve.

    “he should appeal it anyway.”

    I’d say it would be heroic for him to appeal the conviction because I get the sense that they are holding the full sentence in abeyance as a threat against such an appeal. The cretin Statists want this conviction to stay in place simply to acquire the precedent.

    OTOH, there is also a sinister reason for him not to appeal and then point to the threat as the reason he dares not — as cover. The more RINOs (SKUNCs — statists knowingly undermining the nation’s constitution — is really a more accurate acronym) that D’Sousa is friendly with, the greater the chances he’d never appeal.

    In the final analysis, it is a blemish on our society for having allowed such racketeering to have become so firmly established. There were ways to have prevented it from having gotten this far, but I fear the real patriots it would have taken to get it done are all dead by now.

    What may not be understood by readers in that last comment is that Rover engines found in any vehicle have long been a target of EPA. And any found with without dealer plates (exempted) or meant to be used only on private tracks have long been a target of DOT.

    The use of DHS implies that agencies are now working together in a manner that expands the danger to the citizen from all unaccountable bureaucracies. Banana republic in full swing?

    You do understand the concept of incrementalism I am sure.

    Do you recall those Argentinians a few short years ago who disappeared and were never heard of again?

    From your link:
    “The feds have given the Brinkley’s 35 days to appeal the seizure but refuse to tell them where the vehicle is located. The DHS has also failed to respond to media requests about the incident.”

    Sober individuals might say: “so what?” More sober individuals say “have you any understanding of incrementalism and tyrannies testing of what they can get away with?” Sadly, very few have any inkling.

    At this point I think much prayer is needed.

    07/08/2014 3:24:42 PM PDT · 22 of 39
    Avoiding_Sulla to SeekAndFind
    Some important points this author has overlooked or avoided. Those who wish to remain free must not overlook them.

    1. "We call illegal immigrants “illegal” because they are here illegally. It’s pretty simple."

    Seeing how border crossing is actively on-going right this minute and hardly after the fact, why get hung up with what FORM of immigrant one is speaking about?

    Just call them collectively as an INVASION FORCE.

    2. "Suppressing language does not change objective reality." An outright lie.

    Renown linguist Eric Blair (George Orwell) wrote definitively on this.

      "The purpose of Newspeak was not only to provide a medium of expression for the world-view and mental habits proper to the devotees of IngSoc, but to make all other modes of thought impossible. It was intended that when Newspeak had been adopted once and for all and Oldspeak forgotten, a heretical thought -- that is, a thought diverging from the principles of IngSoc -- should be literally unthinkable, at least so far as thought is dependent on words. "
    While this long paragraph does lay it out well enough, it is too long to be recalled easily, especially so in this day of sound-bites.

    In this Orwell lays out how the all controlling state aims to keep its subjects in bondage and without the ability to rebel. So I argue that it is much too important a declaration to leave in its highly intellectual form.

    How might you shorten it?

    I offer this as simpler way to remember it so as to be able to repeat it to any who will listen:

      'By eliminating words, rulers aim to make thoughts of rebellion literally unthinkable, at least so far as thought is dependent on words. '

    It's not all that clear that treaties can legitimately overrule the amendments like 2A because they were ratified AFTER the original, and by rights overrule those words undoubtedly welcomed by weasels.

    Sorry, that’s a transcription error made by me. I wasn’t able to carry over the same format easily. It took me some time. If that’s the only error I made, thank the Lord.

    Pascal’s version post has a highlighted dot at MORE liberal.

    Put your own answers in. This blog post merely demonstrates how this is no survey like you have ever seen.

    This one is not about elections. This one is about a watchdog institution that is riding herd on the original watchdog institution — our failed Fourth Estate. You know — the one that is behaving like the Pravda and Izvestia reborn.

    As to it being a waste of time, yep, Pascal covered that.

    Still, since it is only 7 questions, you are not expending much time.

    And quite obviously, you like stating your opinion. This “survey” actually asks you to state your opinion. :D

    Go answer this survey (more like a request for guidance than any survey I've ever been offered) at the Media Research Center

    Not often we are asked for our opinions by any institution. Be sure to fill in those blanks. We are offered blank spaces to fill in so rarely, I'm inclined to think this was a mistake! Take advantage of the opportunity while yee may.
