Now go ahead and have some FUN!!!
Hail Mary, Full of Grace, The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of death. Amen.
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
"... Writing recently on her Fox Business blog, Gerri Willis spelled out the huge rise in taxes Americans are facing. “All told, next year, total taxes will go to almost 50% for the middle class; the very group that the president says he wants to protect. That means 50 cents out of every dollar earned has to go to the government. Half of everything will go to an entity that didn't earn that money, and shouldn't be entitled to all that dough.”
What kind of madness is it that the Teamsters union would impose such senseless rules that it would weaken Hostess to the point of bankruptcy, preferring to let the company die rather than to protect the jobs of 18,500 bakers? Other unions are engaged in attacks on a weakened economy. What kind of nation is it that its government employees are lobbying Congress to not only increase their pay, but to exempt them from the impact of the spending cuts scheduled to kick in?
There is a full-scale attack on the privacy Americans have taken for granted, protected by the fourth Amendment that says “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated…”
On November 14th, the Heritage Foundation asked “Do you trust the government with your computer?” The government has had “13 breaches and failures of its own cybersecurity just in the last six months.” Even so, “the President and his allies in the Senate are pushing forward to regulate America’s cyber-doings, without any clues about how much this will cost or how it will work.”
“It has become the norm with this President—if Congress fails to accomplish his objectives, he goes around it with executive orders and federal regulations. He’s doing it again. Congress did not pass the Cybersecurity Act of 2012 before the election, so the President has issued a draft of an executive order to put much of that legislation in place without lawmakers voting.”
This is the very essence of tyranny and the President has had four years to perfect it. Are conservative think tanks the only ones paying any attention? It would appear so.
A new proposed law in the Senate would strip Americans of any privacy as they communicate with one another by email. A vote for the law would allow warrantless access to American’s email and is scheduled for a vote shortly. It would allow 22 federal agencies as well as state and local law enforcement to access one’s emails with nothing more than a subpoena. This is totally unconstitutional.
Already $16 trillion in debt, the government is looking for ways to take over the $3 trillion that is held in private retirement plans such as 401(k) plans and IRA’s. A recent hearing by the Treasury and Labor Departments addressed the nationalization of the nation’s pension system. The director of the National Senior’s Council, Robert Crone, warns “It is clear that this is the first step towards a government takeover. It feels just like the beginning of the debate over health care and we all know how that ended up.”
As we move closer to an Electoral College vote confirming Obama’s reelection, whistleblowers are coming forth in Ohio, Florida and elsewhere to reveal that significant voter fraud was a contributing factor, but it receives little or no media coverage. One must ask how 99% of votes in Philadelphia districts went to Obama and ask why nothing is being done to investigate this and other offenses such as the 141.1% of the vote recorded in Florida’s St. Lucie County. That is statistically impossible, but it robbed Rep. Allen West (R) of his seat in Congress.
This isn’t government. It is gangsterism. It is “the Chicago way.”
The monster Homeland Security Agency just graduated its first class of FEMA Corps, kids aged 18-24, recruited from the President’s Americorps volunteers, that will become a full time, paid standing army. Fears of FEMA camps abound and in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, people seeking shelter and food were herded into one that resembled a concentration camp of the Nazi regime and told not to use various means of communication to contact the media or outside community. They went from hurricane victims to prisoners of the government.
In so many ways, the freedoms protected by the U.S. Constitution are in danger of disappearing along with the separation of powers it requires.
Little wonder that citizen’s petitions from a growing number of states are called for secession. Or that governors are refusing to set up the Obamacare exchanges required by a law that has taken control of twenty percent of the nation’s economy; their budgets held hostage to Medicaid.
On an individual level, people who have jobs are fearful of losing them. College graduates are fearful of the huge debt they carry for the loans they received. People wonder if they can afford to get married. Married couples fear the cost of having another child. Homeowners fear not being able to pay their mortgages. Seniors fear that their savings won’t last as they live longer.
There is ample reason to fear not only the collapse of the nation’s economy, but the loss of liberty in America."

"The Republican Party went into the 2012 elections with a number of handicaps. One of the biggest of these handicaps was that it genuinely believed in a single country defined by the American Dream of family values, hard work and national greatness. The Democratic Party, which scored decisive victories across the country, never believed in any such thing, though its leading lights, like Obama, occasionally paid lip service to the idea as a sop to older white voters who would have been turned off by the 2012 version of Obama sounding like the 2002 version of Obama.
Where the Republican Party thought to bring out a national movement, the Democratic Party relied on a coalition of interest groups with little in common except for a dependency on the government and an outsider’s cultural antipathy to the Republican Party.
While the Republican Party still aspires to a vision of a single America, the Democratic Party pulls the strings of a broken America, a disassembled collection of hostile and suspicious groups protecting their own turf in post-American multicultural urban and suburban wastelands. This broken country of lost souls, fractured families and makeshift tribes is the Democratic Party’s base.
The Democratic Party is defined by the broken family in the same way that the Republican Party is defined by the family. It is a refuge for minority groups where fatherlessness leads to single mothers and government dependency and for white middle-class Julia types who use government dependency as a substitute for parental dependency.
Family defines continuity. Enough families taken together form a community. The common culture of the community is a multi-generational heritage that shapes the identities of their children. Take away the family and you have rootless individuals looking for tribes to affiliate with, clumping in artificial groups based on some common characteristic and economic interest. And that is the Democratic Party.
Take away the family and millions of seniors have no recourse for their needs and even their survival, but to turn to the government. Take away the family, and single mothers raising children on their own have to turn to the government. Take away the family and children no longer look to their parents to help them get a start in life; they look to the government. Take away the family and you take away identity. You take away everything that makes us a country and a people.
Take away the family and you have ghettoes where men prowl, leaving behind the children of different mothers, and the mothers of those children wait in line to cash their welfare checks. Take away the family and a generation of boys and girls wait in public housing to repeat the same cycle where the rite of passage is a prison sentence for boys and a prenatal exam for girls.
At the middle class level, parents no longer count on their children to take care of them when they grow old and children no longer count on their parents to pass on an inheritance to them. Marriage and children become an expense, not a net benefit. Abortion becomes logical when the economic interests of the middle class are no longer tied to having children, but to avoiding having children because the only people who benefit from having children are on public assistance. Parents and children become strangers thrown together by biology with no common future holding them together, all too grateful to a government that takes them off each other’s hands.
THEY ALL VOTED FOR OBAMA.
Under such conditions, dependency becomes a way of life. Without the family, individuals affiliate with identity groups that promise to help them get ahead in life. People who have little in common except race or gender affiliate with groups that shape them into artificial collectives based on race and gender, with the promise of economic benefits and outsider solidarity.
The descendants of Southern European immigrants from a dozen countries and multiple cultures begin calling themselves a persecuted racial minority. Women are encouraged to cluster into “sisterhoods.” Men attracted to other men join their own identity group. New identities are constantly discovered and formed. These identities provide no true mutual support and serve as an inferior and artificial substitute for the organic structure of the family...."
"The day after amnesty is passed, a common response from the Latino community will be, "Thanks suckers. We'll never forget what racists you Republicans always were. Now, where is my handout?" All of the Republicans' soaring rhetoric about the creative power of capitalism and the moral imperative to limit government -- this is nothing but hot air to the hungry mouth that stands to benefit from a fatter Nanny State and the cuckold Uncle Sam. Immigrants, for whatever reason, are predisposed towards state largesse; 43 percent of immigrants who have been in the U.S. for more than 20 years are using welfare benefits. 57% of Mexican immigrants are on some form of welfare, compared with 6% of immigrants from the United Kingdom. It's an equally troubling fact that these immigrants are being indoctrinated in public schools. Liberals are cultivating hostility towards free markets and individual accountability, and they have found willing allies in the form of poorly educated, impoverished immigrants. Contrary to mainstream conservative wishful thinking, Hispanics do not become significantly more conservative as they move into the economic mainstream. Even Cuban young people are turning away from the conservative voting patterns of their forefathers here. Like blacks, Hispanics adopt the oppression fantasies of their indoctrination, and carry that ideology into the middle and upper class. Their racial solidarity has fused with a political ideology of liberalism, together fueling a monstrous expansion of the welfare state. These are patterns of behavior that can be observed and measured..."
"If you're reading this, you've almost made it through the Obama years. God knows it hasn't been easy holding on this long. If you're like me, there were days you felt as if you'd aged ten years, just trying to bitterly cling to your leaky life raft. Maybe you're one of the 23 million Americans who are unemployed, under-employed, or who have given up looking for work. Who can blame you for despairing, when two-thirds of the jobs in the last four years have gone to new immigrants, many of them illegals? But don't worry if, like one out of six Americans, you're sinking into poverty -- after all, Obama assures us that "the private sector is doing fine." Maybe you or someone you love is serving in our military. Your lives have been endangered by Obama's disastrous rules of engagement, with 70% of the fatalities in Afghanistan occurring during his term. Every day, you wake up to a commander-in-chief so indifferent to your needs that he let four American heroes die, unaided, in a seven-hour terror attack in Benghazi. Making matters unbearably worse, he watched the assault live. But, rest assured, Obama thinks you make "a pretty good photo op," even if your slaughter is "not optimal."
Or perhaps you lost the business you started with your blood, sweat, and tears, or that your family had nurtured for generations. Like Bill's Barbecue, an 82-year-old local institution in Richmond, Virginia, you had to fire all your hardworking employees, disappoint your loyal customers, and shut the doors for good. If you owned one of 200,000 small businesses that vanished between 2008 and 2010, wiping out more than three million jobs, Obama won't be sending you a sympathy card anytime soon. After all, the ex-community organizer preaches, "... you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."
Are you a doctor who worries about losing your medical practice when ObamaCare roars into full effect? You spent your youth studying and taking on massive debt for medical school so you could dedicate your life to helping others. Now, facing 2,700 pages of ObamaCare regulations, you're one of 360,000 physicians who plan on "leaving their practice or taking an early retirement" if ObamaCare stands. That's 45% of working doctors! Of course, Obama won't be sorry to see you go. This is the guy who claims that "... doctors would rather take out tonsils than treat a sore throat because it pays better" and "... doctors would rather cut off legs for $50,000 than take care of a diabetic before it got to this point."
The casualties, the miseries, the torments add up. One and a half million senior citizens losing their homes to foreclosure...half of college graduates can't find full-time jobs...net worth of families plunging 40%...the ratio of new food stamp recipients to new net jobs skyrocketing to 75 to 1...violent crime up by 18%...America's credit rating downgraded for the first time in history.
And at the center of our nightmare lurks the peculiar character now residing in the people's house at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. We can see him only through his media-induced saintly glow -- yet we have come to know him all too well. He shimmers before our disbelieving eyes, a self-described piece of "eye candy" with dead fish hands, framed by Greek columns.
The grieving father of slain Benghazi hero Tyrone Woods described meeting Obama at Andrews Air Force Base, when his son's casket arrived from Libya. "Shaking hands with him, quite frankly, was like shaking hands with a dead fish. His face was pointed towards me but he would not look me in the eye, his eyes were over my shoulder...I could tell that he was not sorry. He had no remorse."
Several days after the casket ceremony, Obama materialized on The View to modestly proclaim he was there just as "eye candy." The ladies on The View swooned, but the American people turned away in disgust. Their dream of hope and change had morphed into a nightmare. And now, their passionate new dream was to stampede to the voting booth on November 6 and vote the nightmare over.
Predictably, now that Obama is fated to vaporize like a bad dream, the ugliness behind his persona is swarming to the forefront. His followers threaten us with violence in expensive campaign commercials that degrade anyone who sees them. Their images are explicitly nightmarish: zombies who will eat our flesh, old people who will castrate us for eternity. Bill Maher, who donated one million dollars to Obama's campaign, just warned us, "If you're thinking about voting for Mitt Romney, I would like to make this one plea: black people know who you are, and they will come after you."
I find it so fitting that Obama is ending his reign by exhorting his followers to get "revenge." Right from the start, the smiling messiah was always surrounded by a pulsating aura of violence. "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun," he said. And "my administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks." And "we're going to punish our enemies and reward our friends."
And so, as the date of Obama's electoral humiliation nears, the Twitter-verse is exploding with riot threats. Many of these illiterate curses are echoing the debased language of "Special Adviser to the President" Kareem Dale. Ordinary Americans now worry, with good reason, that violence will be unleashed against us as punishment for waking up from our Hopium illusions.
Whatever happens, be strong and of good courage. The man who set out to "fundamentally transform" the country, accompanied by a wife who had never been proud of America, can no longer hypnotize us into doing his will.
Our long Obama nightmare is almost over. The restoration of the American dream is about to begin."
“When Obama is in the White House for a second term I’ll take it all off,” promised Madonna Ciccone during a recent concert for morons who probably rifle through their parents’ pockets to come up with the average $60 ticket price. On this occasion, mercifully, she took off only her outer garments and after some 3rd rate hooker routine on a piano top revealed the name OBAMA painted on her lower back. In her profanity-laced endorsement, Ms. Ciccone cited Obama’s support of “gay rights” and the amazingness of having “an African-American in the White House” as the reason why her audience must vote for Obama.
Now, people interested in questions of IQ and its relation to cognitive and other life skills, know that Ms. Ciccone’s confirmed IQ is 140. That is in the 99.6 percentile for white Americans (Mean: 100, SD: 15). How is that possible?
What does Obama have to do for white and once-Christian Harvard PhDs and 140-IQs to get their first clue? Hand North Africa and much of the Levant to the Muslim Brotherhood? Shower 450 million dollars the U.S. does not have on the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, in addition to the usual $1.5 billion-a-year windfall? 45 million on the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria? The usual $400 million annual pop on Libya, this time to affiliates of Al Qaeda? Bring to power in Mali (soon to be followed by Burkina Faso and Niger) Mohammedans so savage other Mohammedans consider them savage? Nourish Iran’s excellent nuke adventure to a triumphal denouement? Apologize for the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution on Pakistani TV? Bow, vassal-style, to King Saud? Turn NASA into a Muslim aid charity? Greatly boost the prestige of Recep Tayyip Erdogan, to better take Turkey back to pre-Atatürk (i.e. pre-1923) if not all the way back to the 7th century? Disable the Keystone Pipeline project that would reduce dependence on Muslim oil?
Been there, done that.
Hire a convicted terrorist and sworn enemy of the United States to write his personal memoir? Put a lunatic lesbian cabal in charge of the security of the United States? Put a subversive black nationalist in the top law enforcement position to better enforce U.S. laws with a clear, anti-white discriminatory intent? Stream battle rifles to Mexican drug cartels so they can shoot more US Border Patrol agents, not to mention Mexican nationals? Forge his birth certificate? Spit, symbolically, on Winston Churchill? Apologize throughout the world for America, and kiss up to her enemies? Cripple the U.S. military by running the (non-nuke) Navy on a 50-50 fuel mixture of seeds, algae and chicken fat (at $26/gallon!) and running soldier manpower on a mixture aspiring to 50-50 of women, lesbian women, homo-men, Muslims, Chicano gangbangers and race-promoted blacks? Put U.S. soldiers in a shooting war, with orders not to shoot? Run the whole military machine ragged on useless missions all over the world complete with a new “Africa Command” and its crooked 4-star black general? Mire the U.S. in more wars simultaneously than any U.S. president, ever?
Yes, yes, yes and yes.
Double the U.S. national debt? Double the number of long-term unemployed? Double the price of gasoline in a country with the largest oil reserves in the world? Halve the dollar’s value against gold? Waste $5 trillion of borrowed money on vaporous stimulus? Dole out $90 billion of taxpayers’ money to “green” scams operated by political cronies and racial kin? Increase welfare spending by 41% to almost $1 trillion a year, without diminishing poverty? Destroy the best healthcare system in the world? Disable welfare-related work requirements and enable EBT food welfare cards for booze, porn, tattoo and jail bail? Largest tax increase in America’s history? Do all that as a barely disguised form of wealth transfer from white to black America? Generate a tidal wave of black racial hatred, black hate crimes and the worst relations between the races since at least the 1950s? Campaign funded in part, both in 2008 and 2012, by hundreds of millions in small donations either unreportable or via untraceable prepaid credit cards, many from abroad? Success of campaign built, partially, on the vote of the dead, the canine, the foreign and the thrice-registered?
Yup, that too.
So what is it? What generates the holy tingling, patented by MSNBC’s main artillery piece, Chris Matthews, up so many expensively shod white legs? What’s the thrill?
At some higher level, the insanity is so stark that questions are redundant. Consider American Jews. The smartest segment of the population, with a mean IQ almost a full standard deviation above that of non-Jewish whites, chock-full of professors, doctors, lawyers, judges, Nobel prize winners, mathematicians and hedge fund wizards. Voted 78% for Obama in 2008 — the highest of any demographic segment but the Blacks. The Blacks were voting rationally, for their pocketbook and racial pride. But the Jews, what were they voting for?
Repeated polls indicate that 65% of America’s Jews are set to vote for Obama, again. Jewish donors and bundlers have been of such key importance to BHO that if Manhattan’s Westside and the best zip codes in the Los Angeles area suffer a major power failure, the Obama 2012 machine may come to a standstill. Simultaneously, these Jewish supporters feel passionately about Israel, are active in pro-Israeli causes, and are forever on guard against antisemitism. And their messiah (small m) has a few more things on his presidential résumé that ought to be of concern to Jews, above and beyond his record of achievements iterated above. For instance:
Associated in Chicago with known Muslim sponsors of Muslim terrorist organizations? Check. Appointed Susan Rice, a clear and present foe of Israel and a clueless fool otherwise, to the post of US Ambassador to the United Nations? Check. Tight with Center for American Progress — a disseminator of anti-Israel, antisemitic content whose three key officers have held key positions in the BHO administration? Check. Excluded Israel, the world’s premier victim of terrorism, from a counter-terrorism forum in Spain? Check. Sent a Muslim terrorism apologist and Israel-basher to represent the United States at a human rights conference in Warsaw? Check. Presented Saudi Arabia’s ideas for an Israeli-Palestinian settlement as America’s position? Check. Went to see Whoopi Goldberg when Bibi Netanyahu asked to talk about Holocaust II? Check.
The complete list could fill pages. Yet the Jewish Council for Education and Research, having spent a bundle in 2007 on videos urging Jews to vote for Obama, is doing so again. Its website presents a banner picture of Mr. Hussein in a heroic pose in front of the American and Israeli flags, and urges Jews via a provocative video with Samuel Jackson to “wake up” and vote for the greatest enabler of worldwide jihad and Jew hatred that the American presidency has ever known.
Blacks have at least an honest rationality in service to self-interest. The American hip hop plutocrat known as Jay-Z says simply that he supports Obama because Obama is black and has a “vision.” It’s a Black Lootist-Revanchist vision and Mr. Z, a shrewd businessman, should know better — but tribe comes first, except for white fools. At the other end of the economic scale, this black woman says she supports Obama because “He gave us a phone, he gonna do more.”
It’s not what America’s founders had in mind and it does not reflect the Anglo-Saxon concept of civic society. But at least it’s not insane and contemptible.
How about the gathering at the Islamic Center of Southern California, where “leaders from several faith communities” spoke about “shattering stereotypes”? We have here Judith Levy, the female rabbi of the Malibu Jewish Synagogue (serves quite the Who’s Who of “Hollywood”) blowing a ram’s horn with passion, just before a gentleman named Jihad Turk explains the Religion of Peace and a white convert to Sikhism with all the exotic accoutrements asserts that unity in diversity is what makes America great. I haven’t laughed this hard since that earlier multicultural Malibu party, the one with Peter Sellers.
Alas, a disproportionate ratio of people who have been warning for a long time about the self-wrought suicide of white people worldwide also have a Joos-done-it fixation that turns what could have been a salutary effort into another pack of emotion-driven lies, hence a dead end. Things are not so simple.
On October 4, 2012, the Reuters headline read: “Romney’s strong debate showing puts Europe on edge.” It’s difficult to understand why Europe cares so much about a clueless half-breed jive master who can switch from hateful black talk to “United We Stand” for the white fools quicker than Yasser Arafat could with a different subject but a similar white audience. Besides, roughly four-in-ten American Whites voted for Obama in 2008, and poll for him 2012. And not only does his presidential record stand against him now, but it was fully predictable in 2008 for anyone with an ounce of brain and a dash of curiosity before those 43% pulled the lever — disproportionately, white women and the young and stupid.
It remains most curious, however, that the higher the intellectual quotient, the higher the degree of insanity. For space reasons, just three chance cases will support our thesis here, though there are thousands.
At Harvard, meet Vanidy Bailey, recently appointed as that university’s “Director of Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, and Queer (BGLTQ) student life”. Vanidy, who refuses all gender-specific pronouns, self-identifies as “masculine of center Caribbean-American” (photos here). According to the BGLTQ postmodern lexicon, for the study of which, I am certain, grants and PhDs are awarded, “masculine of center” denotes lesbian womyn (sic.) who tilt towards the masculine. This type of academic discipline being neither academic nor discipline they write “masculine of center” when they mean “masculine off center.” A visit to the University of California Santa Cruz Feminist Studies Department will confirm not only the off-center physical types but the off-center, hard core communist politics too.
Of course there have been a thousand Vanidys at Harvard. One Barry Obama was not only accepted and graduated from the Harvard Law School but made president of Harvard Law Review without ever having published a single law review. The aforementioned Homi Bhabha, who holds an endowed professorial chair in American and English Literature and is Director of Harvard’s Humanities Center, writes English prose like this:
“If, for a while, the ruse of desire is calculable for the uses of discipline soon the repetition of guilt, justification, pseudo-scientific theories, superstition, spurious authorities, and classifications can be seen as the desperate effort to “normalize” formally the disturbance of a discourse of splitting that violates the rational, enlightened claims of its enunciatory modality.”
Taking a core sample in a second tier university provides no solace. Vanidy themselves is a prized catch that Harvard poached from University of California, San Diego. To make up for the loss of its black female (sorry, Vanidy) Assistant Director for Education, UCSD, which is a taxpayer-financed institution in a bankrupt state, treated itself to a new and of course black female Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, Linda Greene. Ms. Greene, a long-time diversity bureaucrat and professor of diversity-pushing law at the University of Wisconsin (CV here [pdf]), will receive a $250,000 annual salary and a relocation allowance approaching $100,000 in aggregate. To compare, Heather MacDonald relayed that an internationally known expert on cancer nanotechnology at the UCSD Engineering School makes $150,000 a year.
Washington State University, with campuses in the poorer, less Progressive parts of that state, probably could not afford the kind of fees commanded by three-fers like black masculine lesbians or even two-fers like black females, so it had to settle for a black male as Vice President for Equity and Diversity. Last time I checked, there was a full-time staff of fifty-five serving under WSU’s chief diversitoid.
Among WSU’s 59 “Equity and Diversity Initiatives” are such fundamentals of university education as “American Diversity Requirement” — a compulsory module including eleven courses. Then we have “Including Children of Aztlan Sharing Higher Education (CASHE)” — “a student recruitment conference” by MECHA, i.e. a fifth-column of Mexican agitators, glorifiers of mass-murdering, cannibal Aztecs, and open US enemies-in-training committed in writing to a refusal to recognize the US and to “repulsion” of “the brutal gringo invasion of our territories.”
If CASHE does not captivate you, there is CAPTIVATE, i.e. “Community, Activism, Pride Today, Inspiring, Visionary, Action, Tomorrow, Empowerment!” It’s something having to do with “Asian and Pacific Islander women.” Try to tell a woman in Japan or Korea that American Progressives put her in the same drawer with Pacific Islanders.
If CAPTIVATE is not your game either, there is ELLA — “Educated Latinas/Chicanas Leading America” (sic.) and GLBTA, “Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgendered and Allies Center.” It’s those allies who matter.
There is SHAPING — “Shaping High School Asian and Pacific Islander Students for Next Generation, and VIBES: “Visionaries Inspiring Black Empowered Students.” There is NEW Leadership Program (for women) and there is MOSAIC - Meet Our Students and Investigate College — sounds innocent enough until it gets to the part of “furthering the diversity goals of the campus.”
There is “Semana de la Raza” — try it in German, Woche der Rasse, with the proper raspy consonants. Yawohl, Herr Oberst! And there is “YWCA of WSU Racial Justice Program.” But my favorites are those with poetic names:
“Out in the Middle of Wheatfields Conference” — a regional leadership and educational conference for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered college students and their allies.”
“Pah-Loots-Pu Celebration — a pow wow that “serves as a recruitment event and honors the accomplishments and contributions of Native American students at WSU.”
And the best of them all: “Future Cougars of Color”.
An hour with the coprophagic inmates of Charenton has worn me out. As all this demented, treasonous prating pours out at me from WSU’s diversity centrifuge, I have an epiphany. I have broken the code. Now I know the secret cypher, the ‘Open Sesame,’ the magic formula by which Progressive gnosis will bring down Heaven on Earth:
CASHE MOSAIC to CAPTIVATE ELLA Out in the Middle of Wheatfields at Pah-Loots-Pu for the NEW Leadership SHAPING of the GLBTA VIBES
It bears clarifying that hurtful adjectives like “coprophagic,” i.e. eating feces, or “idiot” apply only to the Whites who initiated this jolly hootenanny 40 years ago and are directing it today. One may have nothing but grudging respect for the “minorities” who see an opening to grab unearned advantages showered on them by mental defectives, and rush to seize them per evolutionary rules of survival. When Whites were still subject to their civilization and its rules of conduct, such behavior was deemed improper. But these are different times, and these are different peoples and cultural standards.
Moreover, words like insanity, madness, idiots that this work is sprinkled with are not to be construed as pejorative hyperbole. To the contrary, I use them according to their strict, diagnostic meaning in psychiatry, jurisprudence and in wisdom-based folklore.
Insanity is uniformly defined in medical dictionaries as a mental illness so severe that the patient cannot distinguish reality from fantasy and therefore cannot conduct his life in a manner safe to himself and to others. At law, insanity has a narrower definition: the defendant’s ability to distinguish right from wrong. By folk wisdom, insanity is known as “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.” By any of those definitions, the Progressive Left, and all social institutions based on Progressive principles, are insane.
To describe Progressives as idiots seems like gratuitous abuse, but the term “Idiot” has a long taxonomical history going back to the Greeks, and it fits the despoilers of the West like a glove. For the Athenians, Idiotes were citizens who declined taking part in the public process of governing, thus showing bad judgment. By the turn of the 20th century “idiot” acquired a specific meaning in clinical psychology, as the lowest level in a scale of mental retardation above which were the levels of imbecile and moron. Mental retardation in turn is defined as an intellectual disability comprising markedly impaired cognitive functioning and failure in two or more adaptive behaviors.
By any of these criteria, Progressives are idiots. They have chronic bad judgment, always fired by the zeal for social and moral re-engineering schemes that are by definition impossible and have ruinous consequences. Never learning from the experience, they repeat the same schemes as though the previous ones succeeded. Having failed to re-engineer the attitudes to wealth and property, they are now busy re-engineering the attitudes to race and achievement. However, rotten financial capitalism that’s ruining the West may yet deliver to the Left a victory on wealth and property too.
The Cougars of Color business brings to mind one, David Villalobos, who recently jumped into the tiger enclosure at the Bronx Zoo, asserting that he wanted “to be one with the tiger.” Almost two David Villaloboses were dragged out ten minutes later, though still fit to be sewn together.
Reality has patterns, based on which all sentient beings, including homo sapiens, developed rules of conduct that enhance the chance of survival. The “fight or flight” response, the “like likes like” social grouping, the hierarchical structure of such groupings, the in-group, out-group differentiation, the hoarding of vital provision for bad times, male-female role divisions and courtship protocol are all among the basic biological mechanisms of being, for otter and human alike.
You don’t jump into a cage with a tiger. You don’t stoke with invented lies anger and resentment in your indigenous or imported racial minorities disadvantaged in your society for their own biological and cultural reasons. Yes, they were treated badly in the past, but the only salutary remedy is Equal Opportunity, not Equal Outcome.
You don’t let a tiger into your own cage either, which is what the West has done by importing tens of million of Muslims disadvantaged cognitively and culturally in the same way as American Blacks or Mestizos are, and imbued with a creed, tradition and history hateful to Westerners. If you want to be one with the tiger, emigrate to Somalia or Pakistan. But to bring the tiger to your own community and let him loose too, why, that’s criminal mischief.
A serious question weighs on me that I have to pose to the reader: Have you been in touch with your conocimiento lately?
See, there is a problem, the one that everyone from presidents Bush and Obama, to the aforementioned Bill Gates, to the entire millions-strong educational establishment and the entire political class are trying to solve: NAMs, i.e. Non-Asian racial minorities, are vastly underperforming in education, and therefore in all the indices of personal prosperity and stability that depend on good education.
The standard solution is to confiscate billions of dollars more from the taxpayers and throw that treasure at the educational establishment. Strategic support is generated by pounding the brains of the pupils in the system, and their parents, with “white privilege” malarkey, so they accept docilely their transformation into ignorant, guilt-ridden white dhimmis for the sake of “closing the gap.”
The curious thing is that, saddled with the indigenous problem of American blacks’ relative ineducability, America has chosen to import tens of millions of the uneducable from Latin America. Hence anguished cries of the clueless class, with titles like “Hispanic education in crisis”.
Rochelle Gutiérrez, Professor of Curriculum and Instruction and Latina/Latino Studies at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, has come up with the perfect solution. In her lecture, “Rethinking the Knowledge Needed to Teach Mathematics,” Professor Gutiérrez argues that the “achievement gap” is a “social construction” and “equity in mathematics” demands more than access to a good curriculum. As summarized in the synopsis of her lecture, Gutiérrez argues that “a model of knowledge needed for teaching mathematics and addressing equity involves political knowledge.” That in turn calls for recognizing “multiple realities (Nepantla), developing conocimiento with students, becoming comfortable with uncertainty, and seeing tension as a means to birth new knowledge.” [Note the casual use of Mexspanish gobbledygook and postmodern English grammar, based on the assumption it’ll fly with an American university audience.]
I wonder if high school teachers of tens of millions of math students in China worry much about Nepantla and conocimiento. The students, however, hardly sleep in their senior year, to prepare for their rigorous exit exams, then go on to some of the best math departments in the world at Beijing, Fudan and Hong Kong Universities, and then on to China’s ballistic and space programs. And for PhD-level knowledge, they and Chinese graduate-level science students enroll in the best American universities — where they are often 75% of the class. That’s because American schools teach Nepantla and conocimiento instead of mathematics, and graduate people of a concomitant mental caliber.
More than 600,000 American manufacturing jobs went unfilled in 2011 due to a skills shortage. And as for less demanding skills such as basic English competence, that is increasingly difficult to find too. Ideas, including the ideas animating American education, have consequences.
Consider the rise of China as another tiger cage parable, except the idiot is so retarded that he not only transported the tiger into his own abode on silken pillows, but spent 40 years and untold trillions on pedicure of the tiger’s claws and orthodontic restoration of its fangs.
China has risen solely through the voluntary transfer of American and Japanese technology, pilfering such technology as it could not obtain legally, and co-opting Western and Japanese corporations to outsource their manufacturing to the People’s Republic. China’s weapons systems that increasingly threaten its erstwhile benefactors were built by Chinese scientists who obtained their PhDs in American universities, and by Chinese engineers who worked for American research and technology corporations, until they learned enough...."
FLAWED SCIENCE COSTS US DEARLY "Here are three not-so trivial questions you probably won’t find in your next pub quiz. First, how much warmer has the world become since a) 1880 and b) the beginning of 1997? And what has this got to do with your ever-increasing energy bill? You may find the answers to the first two surprising. Since 1880, when reliable temperature records began to be kept across most of the globe, the world has warmed by about 0.75 degrees Celsius.
From the start of 1997 until August 2012, however, figures released last week show the answer is zero: the trend, derived from the aggregate data collected from more than 3,000 worldwide measuring points, has been flat.
Not that there has been any coverage in the media, which usually reports climate issues assiduously, since the figures were quietly release online with no accompanying press release – unlike six months ago when they showed a slight warming trend.
The answer to the third question is perhaps the most familiar. Your bills are going up, at least in part, because of the array of ‘green’ subsidies being provided to the renewable energy industry, chiefly wind.
They will cost the average household about £100 this year. This is set to rise steadily higher – yet it is being imposed for only one reason: the widespread conviction, which is shared by politicians of all stripes and drilled into children at primary schools, that, without drastic action to reduce carbon-dioxide emissions, global warming is certain soon to accelerate, with truly catastrophic consequences by the end of the century – when temperatures could be up to five degrees higher. Hence the significance of those first two answers. Global industrialisation over the past 130 years has made relatively little difference.
And with the country committed by Act of Parliament to reducing CO2 by 80 per cent by 2050, a project that will cost hundreds of billions, the news that the world has got no warmer for the past 16 years comes as something of a shock. It poses a fundamental challenge to the assumptions underlying every aspect of energy and climate change policy. This ‘plateau’ in rising temperatures does not mean that global warming won’t at some point resume.
But according to increasing numbers of serious climate scientists, it does suggest that the computer models that have for years been predicting imminent doom, such as those used by the Met Office and the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, are flawed, and that the climate is far more complex than the models assert. ‘The new data confirms the existence of a pause in global warming,’ Professor Judith Curry, chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Science at America’s Georgia Tech university, told me yesterday.
‘Climate models are very complex, but they are imperfect and incomplete. Natural variability [the impact of factors such as long-term temperature cycles in the oceans and the output of the sun] has been shown over the past two decades to have a magnitude that dominates the greenhouse warming effect. ‘It is becoming increasingly apparent that our attribution of warming since 1980 and future projections of climate change needs to consider natural internal variability as a factor of fundamental importance.’
"LANGUAGE DE WEVER REMINDS ME OF THE THIRTIES".
In an interview with VPRO [Dutch leftist media channel - MFBB] Ghent mayor Daniel Termont (SP.a) says that De Wever's style and the content of his speech 'look very much extreme right'. Certain parts of Dewever's victory speech remind Termont of a language I heard in the thirties and which SCARES ME'.

CDR, baloney. Mark my words and you'll remember them when you have the fortune to reach the ripe old age of 90, Belgium ain't no artificial nation. Among the average Fleming there is no desire to split up the country and indeed, the guy in the article, Bart De Wever, leader of the N-VA, something like a Vlaams Belang Lite, is no secessionist. He is a confederalist, wanting to transfer certain fiscal responsibilities to the regions while keeping key ministries like defense or foreign affairs at the federal level. He DOES want still greater autonomy for Flanders and Wallonia, true.
But I think he's smart enough to understand that there are strong supranational forces at play (the EU itself foremost) which will NEVER allow that one of the six founding members of the EU, indeed, a mini EU in itself and its very political laboratory, will call its splitsville thereby calling in question the viability of the greater EU itself.
In that respect NV-A is a bit more realist than the VB, which btw is rapidly hrinking as a result of N-VA cannibalizing it. They understand that here in ole Belgium we aren't doing anymore what we'd like to do without Big Brother EU looking over our shoulder ready to intervene at a moment's notice.
Also, there's the problem of Brussels. You simply cannot make a clean cut in Belgium, it's not Czechoslowakia where both parties had clearly defined and mature administrative centers: Prague for the Czechs and Bratislava for the Slovaks.
Belgium falling apart? Forget it.
I think the VB made a grievous political error in not acknowledging that the average Fleming DOES-NOT-WANT-A- BREAKUP. They (the VB) have been hammering on independence for aeons, it can't be done. And now they are stuck in a corner with their main programme point and can't call it quits without losing face even more. Of course, the VB programma is more than that. Other main points are:
* strong identity politics (Western in general, Flemish in particular)
* strongly opposed to islamization
* zero tolerance for criminality
* defense of traditional values (the traditional family with man, woman, preferably married, and a couple of kids
* against gay marriage, against gay adoption
* on the economical level, pro free market with social corrections, from a technical POV pro supply side economics
All good points, which is why I am still a VB member. But I couldn't even vote for the VB since privately I live in Wallonia. I HAD to vote, for that reason, for Walloon parties - and with pain in my heart give my vote for the least worst.
You won't find (m)any of those VB hallmarks in the N-VA programme. Like I said, their signature claim is for confederalism, as they see it as the only means to stem the flow of Flemish money to the dilapidated socialist structure in the south - Wallonia.
Bottom line: the VB has a string of good, honest conservative points but one demand that cannot realistically be met - Flemish independence tout court. The N-VA, soi-disant VB Lite, lacks the real conservative stuff, indeed, is ambiguous in quite a few matters, but has one realistic proposal for stopping Walloon profiteering on Flemish backs - confederalism.
Inexplicably, the leader of the NVA, Bart De Wever, does not let an occasion pass to spit in the VB's face. I can understand that for pragmatic reasons it would be preferable not to 'burn' itself in an alliance with the VB (that there would be 'burning' is in itself a disgrace since the VB has long since come clean with its past). There's however no excuse for displaying genuine physical contempt.
What will the future bring? The VB has so hammered on the unreachable goal of indepence that they've cornered themselves. Voter fatigue with a party that is at the same time constrained in the infamous 'cordon sanitaire' has depleted its ranks. Unless a miracle happens, I see no immediate solution for the stalemate the party finds itself in.
The N-VA will discover soon enough that even the whiff of faux conservatism suffices to brand it as 'extreme right' in a country where leftist ideologies have so been spoonfed to the population that they have become mainstream. Sure enough, already Daniel Termont, the socialist mayor of Ghent, a major Flemish town and one where the reds and greens were able to stay in power, said to the Dutch press that Bart De Wever made him think of the thirties. That a proponent of mere confederalism can be branded as a closet nazi by a socialist asshole pur sang who GETS AWAY WITH SUCH A RIDICULOUS ACCUSATION speaks bookmarks of the level of political correctyism that has so much become the norm that anything that's not in line with it is suspect.
Add to that the imho volatile nature of the N-VA 'show of strength', based as it is one nothing more than a one man cult - for some reason Bart De Wever 'ticks', at least for now, and you have the promise of an N-VA implosion a couple of years hence.
In short - I'm desperate for conservatism in Belgium (AND in Europe), which would be the ONLY thing that can put us back on the tracks.
Personally, I will stay a VB member. Apart from its striving for independence, it's sufficiently conservative for me. If the conservative ship must go down in a world full of political lies, media distortions and educational brainwashing, then I prefer to go down with it instead of going with the flow.

"To "politicize" means "to give a political character to." It is a reductive term, capturing the peculiarly shrunken horizons of politics: "Gee, they nuked Israel. D'you think that will hurt us in Florida?" So media outlets fret that Benghazi could be "bad" for Obama – by which they mean he might be hitting the six-figure lecture circuit four years ahead of schedule. But for Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, it's real bad. They're dead, over, gonesville. Given that Obama and Secretary Clinton refer to Stevens pneumatically as "Chris," as if they've known him since third grade, why would they dishonor the sacrifice of their close personal friend by peddling an utterly false narrative as to why he died? You want "politicization"? Secretary Clinton linked the YouTube video to the murder of her colleagues even as the four caskets lay alongside her at Andrews Air Force Base – even though she had known for days that it had nothing to do with it. It's weird enough that politicians now give campaign speeches to returning coffins. But to conscript your "friend's" corpse as a straight man for some third-rate electoral opportunism is surely as shriveled and worthless as "politicization" gets.
In the vice-presidential debate, asked why the White House spent weeks falsely blaming it on the video, Joe Biden took time off between big toothy smirks to reply: "Because that was exactly what we were told by the intelligence community." That, too, is false. He also denied that the government of which he is nominally second-in-command had ever received a request for additional security. At the risk of "politicizing" things, this statement would appear also to be untrue.
Instead, the State Department outsourced security for the Benghazi consulate to Blue Mountain, a Welsh firm that hires ex-British and Commonwealth Special Forces, among the toughest hombres on the planet. The company's very name comes from the poem "The Golden Journey To Samarkand," whose words famously adorn the regimental headquarters of Britain's Special Air Service in Hereford. Unfortunately, the one-year contract for consulate security was only $387,413 – or less than the cost of deploying a single U.S. soldier overseas. On that budget, you can't really afford to fly in a lot of crack SAS killing machines, and have to make do with the neighborhood talent pool. So who's available? Blue Mountain hired five members of the Benghazi branch of the February 17th Martyrs' Brigade and equipped them with handcuffs and batons. A baton is very useful when someone is firing an RPG at you, at least if you play a little baseball. There were supposed to be four men heavily armed with handcuffs on duty that night, but, the date of Sept. 11 having no particular significance in the Muslim world, only two guards were actually on shift.
Let's pause right there, and "politicize" a little more. Liberals are always going on about the evils of "outsourcing" and "offshoring" – selfish vulture capitalists like Mitt Romney shipping jobs to cheap labor overseas just to save a few bucks. How unpatriotic can you get! So now the United States government is outsourcing embassy security to cheap Welshmen who, in turn, outsource it to cheaper Libyans. Diplomatic facilities are U.S. sovereign territory – no different de jure from Fifth Avenue or Mount Rushmore. So defending them is one of the core responsibilities of the state. But that's the funny thing about Big Government: the bigger it gets, the more of life it swallows up, the worse it gets at those very few things it's supposed to be doing. So, on the first anniversary of 9/11 in a post-revolutionary city in which Western diplomats had been steadily targeted over the previous six months, the government of the supposedly most powerful nation on Earth entrusted its security to Abdulaziz Majbari, 29, and his pal, who report to some bloke back in Carmarthen, Wales.
In the days before the attack, Joe Biden had been peddling his Obama campaign slogan that: "Bin Laden is dead, and General Motors is alive." The first successful terrorist attack on U.S. sovereign territory since 9/11, and on the very anniversary and by al-Qaida-linked killers, was not helpful to the Obama team. And so the nature of the event had to be "politicized": Look, over there – an Islamophobic movie! "Greater love hath no man than this," quoth the President at Chris Stevens' coffin, "that a man lay down his life for his friends." Smaller love hath no man than Obama's, than to lay down his "friend" for a couple of points in Ohio."
'They are overtaken by the facts. Youth unemployment is 30 per cent higher than in 2007. For those over 55 the numbers are even worse. There unemployment rose with 44 per cent. And it does not stop there. Forced removal from their homes: up thirty per cent. Another good indicator: the number of people enjoying a preferential treatment in health insurance has risen with 47 per cent since 2007. These are people flirting with poverty. A quarter of children in Antwerp lives in poverty. A quarter! That must become priority number one in the next legislature.'
'The word poverty does not appear in the current legislature's governing accord. This is simply not done. The rows at the Food Distribution Agencies in Antwerp are getting longer and longer. Among Maghrebians [Moroccans, Algerians and Tunisiand - MFBB] half is living in poverty, among Turks it's a third.'
'So we urgently need a City Plan for Fighting Poverty, that is also part of the governing accord. If we are in the majority, it's gonna be a breaking point. The Green Party therefore aims explicitly for the post of Town Selectman for Social Affairs.'
'This portfolio must include convincing financial prowess. Year after year the OCMW (Public Centres for Societal Wellbeing) is plugging the holes of the year before. In 2013 a part of the budget will therefore go to the year 2012. We need at least 20 million EUR to really make a difference here.'
'Every euro you now spend in fighting children's poverty will yield a return in the long term. With it, you help to prevent generational poverty, and in this manner those youths will have less health problems and better schooling trajectories. And then we keep silent about the terrible stigma that poverty brings with it: this weighs enormously on people.'
France is set to ban the words "mother" and "father" from all official documents under new plans to legalize gay marriage and give equal adoption rights to homosexual and heterosexual couples.
Under the proposed law, only the word "parents" would be used in marriage ceremonies for all heterosexual and same-sex couples, a move that has sparked widespread outrage, The Telegraph reports.
Changes to the civil code would mean swapping all references to "mothers and fathers," in legal documents, with the word "parents."
