    Stalled: Luciferian Elites' attempts to enslave the US population into a Communist "Utopia" The corrupt and criminal Clinton Cartel (includes virtually most Democrats and a few RINOs) are acting like a group of nasty, insane and furious Ferengis (see video below if you are one of the very few who never watched Star Trek TNG) and they want us all to join them in their madness. These creatures hate President-Elect Trump and his supporters. They want all of us to hate him and ourselves for having the unmitigated temerity to have voted for him, too! We-the-People stalled the Luciferian Elites’...

    Speaking in Greece on his valedictory trip to Europe as president, Barack Obama struck a familiar theme: "(W)e are going to have to guard against a rise in a crude form of nationalism, or ethnic identity, or tribalism that is built around an 'us' and a 'them' ... "(T)he future of humanity and the future of the world is going to be defined by what we have in common, as opposed to those things that separate us and ultimately lead us into conflict." That the world's great celebrant of "diversity" envisions an even more multicultural, multiethnic, multiracial America and Europe...

    The Sultan Knish blog ^ | Tuesday, September 27, 2016 | Daniel Greenfield
    The sort of people who set off class wars as a hobby have very particular classless societies in mind. The average left-wing revolutionary is not poor. He is a homicidal dilettante from the upper classes with a burning conviction of his own importance that he is unwilling to realize through disciplined labor. His revolution climaxes with a classless society in which he is at the very top. Not near the top, not adjacent to the top, as he usually was before, but at the very top. Utopia has a class system. At the top are the thinkers, the philosopher kings...

    This unassuming house on a quiet street in Northeast D.C. is cramped but welcoming. There are several bikes lined up on the porch, overflowing bookshelves, personal belongings in almost every corner, and a refrigerator that’s packed to the hilt. When I visit, four people are in the living room chatting and joking with each other like friends who have known each other for years. But they haven’t. The group has known each other for only a year or so, and they aren’t merely friends—they are engaged in a bold and unusual experiment, sharing not just their home but all of...
  • Hillary's solution for our struggling economy

    Hillary's solution for our struggling economy: Massive government spending. Massive tax increases and new taxes on individuals and corporations. Massive increase of regulations. Step up the war against coal, gas and oil. Bankrupt all traditional producers of energy. Massive new government spending on "green" technologies and "green" jobs. Bankrupt as many capitalist industries as possible. Implement universal government provided "free" healthcare. Double the minimum wage. Guarantee a minimum income to all "working" families (and non-working families). Free college education, free healthcare and free lunches for all. Open our borders, grant amnesty, citizenship, welfare and voting rights to all comers including...

    At least one professor in America does not feel the Bern. University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Professor Jack Stauder says his political and ideological conversion away from socialism and Marxism occurred when he actually witnessed these systems in action. After traveling to more than 110 countries to pursue various forms of research, notably cultural anthropology, Stauder described his conversion from Marxism as a process of disillusionment. “I gradually became disenchanted with Marxism by visiting many of the countries that had tried to shape their societies to conform to its doctrines. I was disillusioned by the realities I saw in … socialist...

    Nearshore Americas ^ | June 1, 2016
    Latin America’s largest airline, Latam, has announced that it has suspended its flights to Venezuela. The news comes barely a day after Germany’s Lufthansa suspended its services to the country. The suspension of air services underlines the worsening economic conditions in the South American country. Low oil prices and the socialist government’s expensive social welfare programs have pushed Venezuela to the brink of an economic disaster, with people queuing for hours to purchase basic goods.In a statement, Latam airlines said flights on its Sao Paulo to Caracas route would be suspended within the next few days, while routes to Caracas...

    Venezuela's economic chaos, critics say is the consequence of failed socialist policies for the last 17 years, especially price and currency controls. Venezuelan security forces fired teargas at protesters chanting "We want food!" near Caracas' presidential palace on Thursday, the latest street violence in the crisis-hit OPEC nation. Hundreds of angry Venezuelans heading towards Miraflores palace in downtown Caracas were met by National Guard troops and police who blocked a major road. President Nicolas Maduro, under intense pressure over a worsening economic crisis in the South American nation of 30 million, had been scheduled to address a rally of indigenous...

    Utopia has arrived. We’ll all be sinless from now on. April Fools’! The older I get the more I see we cannot eliminate sin, but we must try to contain it. Containment means allowing some divorce but ending no-fault ease. It means allowing some welfare but ending easy pickings. It means allowing small federal and state budget deficits but not the large ones we now have. Wise store managers work to minimize shoplifting, but they know a few thieves will get away. Wise officials have the same sense regarding graft and corruption. Otherwise, they and we are April fools. Thirteen...

    City Journal ^ | November 4, 2015 | By Chris Reed
    In November 2008, California voters narrowly approved Proposition 1A, which provided $9.95 billion in government money for a statewide bullet-train network. The initiative passed, even though the California High-Speed Rail Authority had been legally required to release a detailed, updated business plan by October 1 of that year, so that voters would have time to learn exactly how the state planned to finance what was then billed as a $43 billion project—and no updated plan was in view. Rail officials failed even to release a preliminary report before the election, claiming that state legislators’ long delay in passing the fiscal...

    Sir Thomas More (1478-1535) was a great jurist and counselor to the notorious King Henry VIII, who was beheaded because of his insistence that the Catholic Church was his supreme religious authority, and not King Henry. . . . More earned a prominent place in the history of world literature because of his classic work, Utopia. In this work, More imagines the ideal society, one that is perfectly just and fair. Indeed, More coined the word "utopia," which has become part of our everyday parlance. . . . the philosopher John Stuart Mill, preferred the term "dystopia." It is Mills'...

    A violent Saturday and Sunday morning in Chicago left four people dead and at least 19 others wounded, including a 14-year-old boy who was killed and a 15-year-old who was injured after a fight in a park in the North Kenwood neighborhood on the South Side. The boys were on the street in the 4400 block of South Greenwood Avenue in the North Kenwood neighborhood when a car drove by and someone opened fire around 7:30 p.m. Saturday, according to police. The 14-year-old, identified by his mother as Tyjuan Poindexter, was shot in the head and died on the scene....
  • A Universal Basic Income Approach

    Demos' Policy Shop ^ | September 15, 2015 | Matt Bruenig
    It's been a while since I've written about the idea of a universal basic income. So I figure an update is in order. The typical UBI proposal you see picks a certain dollar amount and then declares that it should go equally to all adults. I disagree with this in two ways. First, I think that children should also receive a basic income (paid to their parents). Second, I think that UBI payments should vary based on age. Neither of these additions negates the chief administrative advantages of the UBI because they don't introduce means-testing. It's trivially easy to vary...

    All the lady wanted was some chicken. But in shortage-plagued Venezuela, she waited in line five hours, only to go home empty-handed. "I got here at 5:30 am and came away with nothing! It is just not fair that you have to work so hard -- and then put up with these lines," said an exasperated Lileana Diaz, a 49-year-old receptionist at a hospital emergency room. Venezuelans have been enduring shortages of the most basic goods, such as toilet paper, for more than a year.

    CBS Chicago ^ | 5/4/2015 | John Dodge
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago is the most segregated city in the United States, while also being one of the most diverse, according to a new analysis of U.S. Census Data. How can that be possible? Because “diversity” and “segregation” are two different things, when you look at them from a city-wide level and then the neighborhood level, writes Nate Silver, the founder and editor of the Five Thirty Eight blog. “Chicago deserves its reputation as a segregated city,” Silver writes. “But it is also an extremely diverse city. And the difference between those terms — which are often misused and...

    The National Review ^ | November 4, 2013 | David Horowitz
    Internal dissension not only blunts the Republican attack; it hands Democrats a convenient stick with which to beat them. No one on the right, whether conservative or Republican, thinks this is a healthy situation. Why, then, is it the case? What is it that unites Democrats that Republicans lack? Anyone who pays attention to politics can see that when Democrats attack, they speak from the same text, and when they vote, they march in lockstep. If one Democrat says the wealthy must pay their “fair share,” all Democrats do — regardless of the merits of the charge. If their leaders...

    Necessity drives invention. In the field of military innovation, all sorts of inventions — the Maginot line, the flame fougasse, trench warfare, the Vickers machine gun — were rooted in the same urgent necessity: keeping Germans out. War is evil and ugly, but Europe experienced a worse horror when that necessity was inverted, and the totalitarian movement that controlled half of the continent decided it needed a way to keep Germans in. And so utopia’s jailers built the Berlin Wall and any number of similar fortifications. The ideologue may say that a wall is a wall is a wall, but...
