    "Citizen journalist Ringo captured this speaker at the Occupy Los Angeles camp a few days ago letting the cat out of the bag: After dismissing nonviolence as a dead end, he admits that for the Occupiers to achieve their goals, violence and bloodshed will be necessary: Here’s a transcript, starting at 32 seconds into the video: Occupy L.A. Speaker: “One of the speakers said the solution is nonviolent movement. No, my friend. I’ll give you two examples: French Revolution, and Indian so-called Revolution. Gandhi, Gandhi today is, with respect to all of you, Gandhi today is a tumor that the...

    OKLAHOMA CITY – Approximately 300 people gathered in Kerr Park late Monday afternoon as part of the national “Occupy Wall Street” movement which is spreading through the U.S. like wildfire. And many of them plan to camp and protest Wall Street, the Federal Reserve or other bastions of corporate power – indefinitely. “In the unfortunate instance that you are arrested, do not resist arrest,” warned an attorney acting as part of the Occupy OKC legal team. He went on to say that Occupy OKC is committed to non-violence. The Oklahoma City Police Department had so far been very courteous and...

    The “Occupy” movement claims to represent 99% of the people (hence their motto, “We Are the 99%”). The US military stands for everything the Occupiers oppose; it is after all the force which imposes the evils of capitalism on the nation and the world.Wouldn’t it be interesting if, as an experiment, we arranged to have the Occupy movement and the US military each hold events in the same city on the same day — and then see which one drew more visitors? If the Occupiers truly represented the 99%, and if the military really were the musclemen for the corporations,...

    I once had a conversation with a well-connected Democrat in Washington, D.C., with regard to lack of advertising in conservative publications. Without missing a beat, she said it was because "advertisers and corporate America are petrified of the far left. The executives at these companies fear that if they advertise in conservative outlets, the far left will harass them, boycott them, threaten them, and picket them forever until they give in to the thuggish behavior." I then pointed out that these same companies who for the most part shun conservative outlets are thrilled to advertise in far-left magazines like Mother...
  • The Occupy Wall Streeters Are Real Whackadoos

    I'm sure their whackadoo status doesn't really come as a surprise to most but you really don't understand the full extent of their idiocy until you see this "Proposed List of Demands For Occupy Wall St Movement!" which I paste below with commentary: Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by ending "Freetrade" by re-imposing trade tariffs on all imported goods entering the American market to level the playing field for domestic family farming and domestic manufacturing as most nations that are dumping cheap products onto the American market have radical wage and environmental...

    Washington Post ^ | 10/03/2011 | E.J. Dionne Jr.
    Why hasn’t there been a Tea Party on the left? And can President Obama and the American left develop a functional relationship? That those two questions are not asked very often is a sign of how much of the nation’s political energy has been monopolized by the right from the beginning of Obama’s term. This has skewed media coverage of almost every issue, created the impression that the president is far more liberal than he is, and turned the nation’s agenda away from progressive reform. A quiet left has also been very bad for political moderates. The entire political agenda...

    Obama’s family feud with the leftBy Sam Youngman - 09/28/11 05:00 AM ET “It’s like, ‘Well, gosh, we’ve got this historic healthcare legislation that we’ve been trying to get for 100 years, but it didn’t have every bell and whistle that we wanted right now, so let’s focus on what we didn’t get instead of what we got.’ That self-critical element of the progressive mind is probably a healthy thing, but it can also be debilitating.” — President Obama to Rolling Stone, September 2010 “I’m sorry I’m not sorry.” — Vince Vaughn in “Wedding Crashers.” A note to the professional...

    September 17 was supposed to be the Day of Rage, the starting point of an anti-capitalist revolution that (in theory) was going to sweep the country coast-to-coast. As I noted yesterday, “The plan is to protest in state capitals and major cities across the nation, but the focus of the revolution will be in New York, where a hoped-for 20,000 anti-capitalists will ‘occupy’ Wall Street.” I dutifully sent my operatives out to cover what were to be three of the largest Day of Rage protests — in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles — so humanity would have a...

    Major Update: The Obama White House will be burned down by green greed ($$$$) and fraudulant solar power investment. Ironic, isn’t it? It turns out that the bureaucrat responsible for overseeing Solyndra had direct financial ties to Obama and Solyndra: Steve Spinner, who helped monitor the Energy Department’s issuance of $25 billion in government loan guarantees to renewable energy projects, was one of Obama’s top fundraisers in 2008 and is raising money for the president’s 2012 reelection campaign. Spinner did not have any role in the selection of applicants for the loan program and, in fact, was recused from the...

    Soon after I published an article questioning the global-warming orthodoxy, the world’s foremost hypocrite, Al Gore, informed anyone who still listens to him that my position is akin to racism. The wise course of action would be to ignore the rants of a man who desperately needs the world to remain fearful of carbon, the element on which all life on earth is based. If that fear were to vanish, how would he continue to rake in the millions needed for the purchase of his next beach house? But enough is enough. Why should I sit quietly and let...

    Ever wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left"? By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible: "The heart of the wise inclines to the right, But the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV) Thus sayeth the Lord. Can't get any simpler than that.

    Don’t be fooled. These are not your friends or fellow patriots. They will try to lure you in as comrades. These are the Unions, Progressives, Communists, Marxists, Socialists, Anarchists – they bring the rage. They will organize and use the youth to rally. You are fodder to them and your life means nothing. They want to foment chaos and violence so the government has an excuse to clamp down on Americans. Don’t. Do. It.

    The Other Mccain ^ | Robert Stacy McCain
    In February, the National Interest published an article by Ian Kershaw called “The Ghosts of Fascists Past“: A prominent British government minister, Baroness Warsi, herself a Muslim, claimed just recently that Islamophobia has “passed the dinner-table test” in Britain and is seen by many as normal and uncontroversial. She warned of growing intolerance, prejudice and bigotry toward the Muslim faith and its adherents. . . . If we add to the mix the anti-immigrant feeling that is widespread in many parts of the Continent, then racism, it has to be admitted, is far from eradicated. How dangerous is it, given...

    The point where we reach the limits of civil debate about policy is, like Justice Potter Stewart’s famous description of pornography, hard to define but you generally know it when you see it. That’s the only possible reaction to a blog post by Jerusalem Post columnist Larry Derfner who wrote on Sunday to say the actions of the terrorists who murdered eight Israelis near Eilat last week were justified. Yes, you read that right.

    The liberal-Left has many vices. But surely the most noisome one of all (in a crowded field) is its rank hypocrisy. If you’re going to take the moral high ground – as Lefties will insist on doing at every opportunity – the very least you owe the world in return if you have a shred of compunction, decency or intellectual consistency is to demonstrate more integrity than those you are impugning. And if you can’t do that, then bloody well shut up. In the last few months, you can’t have helped noticing, the liberal-Left media, led by the BBC and...

    The Rage on the Left Is Just BeginningBy Juan Williams Published August 19, 2011 If you are a right-winger who does not like President Obama and calls his policies “socialist,” you’ve got to hear what is going on among America’s left-wingers. In fact, you can even read it for yourself in The New York Times. Left-wing columnist Maureen Dowd has written several columns dripping with contempt for Obama since he struck a deal with Republicans to cut spending but chose not to increase taxes in order to lower our nation's debt. And Paul Krugman the Nobel Prize-winning economist has...

    Gee, who could’ve seen this coming? 20 leftist radicals were arrested today in the US House after they harassed Republican lawmakers and disrupted procedures. Far left members of National People’s Action took credit for the disruption. They’re outraged that they won’t be getting more of your money. The Washington Post reported: More than 20 protesters were arrested Monday afternoon after causing a disruption in the House gallery as lawmakers debated the debt-reduction deal negotiated by the White House and congressional leaders. Capitol Police spokeswoman Sgt. Kimberly Schneider said 22 protesters were arrested and charged with disruption of Congress.
