  • The Short of the Long of It - The Difference Between Socialism-Communism and Fascism

    Obama can be relied upon to support Clinton. The Red Dragon of Socialism-Communism errs on the side of top-political level state planning of industries beyond the technical compentencies of its state-terror/secret-police, it gets lost in ensuring the prerogatives of its party elites. Fascism (Gates, Buffett, Soros, Rockefeller, Ford, Roth Schild, Midas, Croesus, et. al...Koch Bros. are chump-changers), errs on the side of ruthless efficieny and economy of scale, reducing people to the status of machines, but Hitler was proof that even the Black Dragon eventually strays off its original mission to feather the beds of elites.

    One of the many topics of debate that came up during Thursday night’s debate between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont was Dr. Henry Kissinger, one of Clinton’s predecessors. Clinton has expressed admiration for Kissinger in the past, particularly of his opening to China. Ms. Clinton expressed the view that one should listen to a variety of opinions, including that of the 92 year old former Nixon era cabinet officer.

They are unconcerned with Iran’s nuclear weapons programs or its support for terrorism and they are willing to provide fig leaves for these and other threats by the Shiite terror state to the United States and to the rest of the free world. Iran, however, is looking to escalate its conflict with the United States. Perversely, normalization is the best strategy for escalating a conflict with the United States while extracting maximum benefit from it. Without normalization, Iran...

    III A nation is a soul, a spiritual principle. Two things, which in truth are but one, constitute this soul or spiritual principle. One lies in the past, one in the present. One is the possession in common of a rich legacy of memories; the other is present-day consent, the desire to live together, the will to perpetuate the value of the heritage that one has received in an undivided form. Man, Gentlemen, does not improvise. The nation, like the individual, is the culmination of a long past of endeavours, sacrifice, and devotion. Of all cults, that of the ancestors...

    Perhaps the most important fact to assimilate about modern American conservatism is that it is not, and has never been, monolithic. It is a coalition with many points of origin and diverse tendencies, not always easy to reconcile. And because of this fact, there has long been a felt need among many conservatives to integrate the Right's divergent components into a philosophically coherent--or at least functional--force. Hence the frequent use of the term fusionism, a word coined more than fifty years ago. Conservatives often like to say that they adhere to a body of immutable truths about human nature and...

"The vast right-wing conspiracy trying to derail my campaign has been rebutted by this new evidence," Hillary contended. "Singling me out when the use of private computers for transmitting classified government communications was standard practice reveals the baseless hypocrisy of their charges." Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif) says "Clinton's 'everybody did it' argument is a gross distortion of reality. It's akin to a notorious drunk...

    Those who think Sen. Ted Cruz can be elected to a job he isn’t eligible for are ignoring the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. If Republicans make the mistake of nominating Cruz for President of the United States, Democrats in California and other states will challenge his eligibility. There’s at least a 90% probability the 9th Circuit Court in San Francisco would rule him ineligible because he is a naturalized citizen rather than a “natural born citizen” as required by the Constitution.

According to Automotive News, Cadillac president Johan de Nysschen confirmed last week that the General Motors GM -2.46% division does not plan a follow-up to the first generation of ELRs that launched at the end of 2013. The trade publication noted that ELR sales dropped 22% last year to only 1,024 vehicles, as dealers complained about the car’s high price tag of nearly $76,000 (with shipping).

    On this date (January 27) in 1945, the Soviet Army liberated Auschwitz. Auschwitz, also known as Auschwitz-Birkenau, opened in 1940 and was the largest of the Nazi concentration and death camps. Located in southern Poland, Auschwitz initially served as a detention center for political prisoners. However, it evolved into a network of camps where Jewish people and other perceived enemies of the Nazi state were exterminated, often in gas chambers, or used as slave labor. Some prisoners were also subjected to barbaric medical experiments led by Josef Mengele (1911-79). During World War II (1939-45), more than 1 million people, by...

Yet, while the civil war wages within the party, the party itself does a disservice to this nation for fighting the wrong battle at the wrong time as the war for the heart of this country wages on. To myself, this has always...

    Monday, January 25, 2016 Conservatism Isn't Dead Posted by Daniel Greenfield No, conservatism isn't dead. It just isn't nearly as influential as some conservatives thought it was. This shouldn't have come as a surprise after two Obama victories, the failures of the Tea Party and the warping of conservative institutions and politicians to serve entirely different agendas. Ideas only have power when they're vested in organizations that have power. Conservative organizations have very little institutional power. Those that do are not particularly conservative, but serve the agendas of an establishment that has self-interested goals. Conservative organizations lean heavily on messaging,...

    Does our existing Constitution permit the federal government to spend money on whatever they want? No! It contains precise limits on federal spending. Federal spending is limited by the enumerated powers delegated to the federal government. If you go through the Constitution and highlight all the powers delegated to Congress and the President, you will get a complete list of the objects on which Congress is permitted to spend money. Here’s the list: • The Census (Art. I, §2, cl. 3) • Publishing the Journals of the House and Senate (Art. I, §5, cl. 3) • Salaries of Senators and...

    Men don't just fear the responsibilities of marriage and fatherhood, they fear the way these institutions have been corrupted and assaulted by our laws, courts, Christian leaders and entertainment, and even attacked by Walsh himself. Marriage has been legally and socially replaced by a new family model. While some men only fear taking on responsibility, wise men rightly are weary of the evil of this new form of family.

    Thursday, January 21, 2016 Trolling is the New Politics Posted by Daniel Greenfield Your classic troll was an amoral sociopath or played one on the internet. His only cause was his own amusement. He advocated horrible and contradictory causes because it amused him to infuriate people. If he could get an entire group howling for his blood, he won. If an outraged media reported on his antics, he was a prince among trolls. Chaos and absurdity were his only agendas. But eventually the trolls who did it for the "Lulz" gave way to the "Moralfags" sincere trolls who were sincerely...

    Donald Trump is running for president. Many believed or hoped that the Donald's latest foray into national politics was nothing more than a public-relations move, not a serious attempt to reside at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. But now that Trump holds the lead in national polls, as well as polls in Iowa and New Hampshire, it's time to take his campaign seriously. Media outlets like Huffington Post and the Wall Street Journal, which are covering Trump's run as an entertainment story, not a news story, are making a mistake. If Trump wants to be a serious candidate for president, and...

    It is critical for U.S. citizens to understand the meaning of the Constitution’s term “natural born citizen” when choosing a prospective Commander-in-Chief. The candidate must be free from all possibility of foreign loyalties through either his or her parentage or place of birth. Why is the adoption of a narrow interpretation of “natural born citizen” essential to the future of our nation? If it is sufficient for a person to have only one U.S. citizen parent in order to be considered a “natural born” citizen, then dual citizens could become President, including dual citizens of countries hostile to the United...

    In Roman Britain the weather was warmer than it is now, and this warmer climate allowed extensive vine growing throughout Britain's Roman period, and for a long time after. By 1086 when the Domesday survey was carried out there were thirty nine vineyards officially recorded in England, although the actual figure may have been much higher. Then temperatures began to drop in the second half of the sixteenth century causing a retreat of vine growing from the north and east of Europe.

    I was told today that Ted Cruz's conservatism was moot because he is not eligible to run for president. I have also been told by others that true conservatives cannot win a general election. If that is true, then there is no winning, for even if you prevail by sacrificing values and principles to enlarge your "tent", you have won nothing. The truth is, regardless of Cruz's status, Cruz's conservatism is not moot anymore than the Founders ideas were moot. For if values and principles are moot, you can follow the law precisely and you have nothing. The Founders parted...
