7 Things Conservatives Should Take Away From Last Week’s Siege On Nevada

The events in Nevada this week have made a number of things crystal clear:

1)      Our government, at least at the upper management/executive service level, is incredibly corrupt.

2)      Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), Senate Majority Misleader, is incredibly corrupt.

3)      Obama’s Executive Branch, which allowed this situation to take place in the way that it did, is incredibly corrupt.

4)      The judicial branch that has consistently allowed “environmentalists” to dictate public land policy is incredibly corrupt.

5)      The “environmentalists” and their co-conspirators in Congress who foisted the so-called “Endangered Species Act” and numerous other extreme laws on us, and turned a blind eye to the above mentioned corruption, are incredibly corrupt.

6)      The massive amount of “public land” controlled by the federal government in the West is anything but public.

7)      If the United States of America is to survive as a single, sovereign nation, the states, and particularly the Western states, need to take back the land unconstitutionally ruled over by the federal government.

There is a movement among a handful of state legislators in the West to get the federal government to turn back the land they have taken over the years and “managed” with agencies like the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the USDA-Forest Service, the Corps of Engineers, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) (none of which appear to be authorized by the Constitution.) We need to aid and abet this movement as if our lives depend upon it. But, let me make clear here, that we are not talking about the middle and lower management and field personnel. The vast majority of these folks are hard-working Americans who give the taxpayers their money’s worth and more on a daily basis. It’s the executive level, the Washington bureaucrats, their political bosses, and their corrupt, globalist, neo-fascist policies that are the problem and the target of this movement.

We are no longer self-sufficient as a nation when it comes to natural resource or food. For example, the radical, Marxist greenies have pretty well destroyed our ability to provide our own timber, a major reason housing prices went sky-high, pushing the working class out of the housing market. This made it possible for the Marxist Democrats to pass laws like the ones that forced banks to lend money to people who obviously couldn’t pay it back, bringing on the economic collapse that allowed the Marxists and global neo-fascists – aka Establishment Republicans – to take us untold trillions of dollars into debt, and ensuring our eventual economic collapse.

While some of the inflation we see in things is a result of this, some is not. Beef prices, for instance, are astronomical largely because of the laws, policies, and criminal corruption that brought about the Bundy situation in Nevada. Produce prices are up, too, and quality is down because much of it comes from foreign sources, many of them Third World countries. This is because our government has used “environmental” laws and unconstitutional thug agencies like the EPA to make farming and ranching so expensive and difficult that few can do it anymore and still make a decent living.

We have seen the supreme Court Jesters rule, in Kelo v. New London, that government can take private property by eminent domain and give it to another private entity that claims it will generate more tax revenue. By extension then, government can also take permits to use public land and give them to someone else if it will get more money for government – and for the corrupt politicians who set up the deals. In the West, the federal government “owns” around 50 to 90 percent of most of the states. It controls land that contains vast reserves of oil and gas; but as we know all too well, Obama and his Marxist and fascist cronies have shut most of it down. They are trying to kill the coal industry, too, and the cheap power that it generates using the same phony, extreme regulations and interpretations of federal laws and rules.

The states need to step up and take their land back. Most states, when the insane cost of complying with tyrannical and draconian federal laws and regulations is removed, are economically sound. With the ability to fully incorporate public land into the states, most would experience an economic boom and a significant rise in the standard of living for their citizens.

What is euphemistically called “crony capitalism” is actually old fashioned fascism. Period. It clearly didn’t die at the end of WWII. It’s alive and well in Washington, DC and bared its fangs in Nevada for all to see. Let’s do what we need to do to take back the West, return to government by the Constitution, and kill the lawless fascism being practiced by the Democrats and Establishment Republicans.

This Is What Happens To America When Metrosexual Marxists Rule…

Metrosexuals and Marxists have one fundamental characteristic in common with each other: they both think they are smarter than everyone else. And since they know everything, they see themselves as the rightful rulers of the common people and arbiters of right and wrong, good and evil, and anything else you can think of.

Since we have a Metrosexual Marxist squatting in the White House (many Americans see Him as a usurper – a Metrosexual Marxist who is also an erstwhile Muslim), we are thrice cursed…er…um…blessed. Barack Hussein Obama and His gang of fanatics…um…er…change agents (aka The Administration) believe that foreign policy is simple: Let the Smartest Man and Only Adult in the Room pontificate; and the world, awed by His charisma and His brilliance and stunned by His ever-so-subtle nuances, will fall into line and do exactly as He wants them to.

As we can see, this strategy has worked like a fine watch made in a Chinese factory.

North Korea – These guys are moving ahead with their nuclear missile program and should soon be able to launch a EMP attack on America–should their sadistic Dear Looney find the need to distract his starving subjects from wanting to slowly skin him alive.

Sub-Saharan Africa – Obama’s fellow Africans (no, wait…B. Hussein was born in Hawai’i, right?) are still slaughtering and enslaving each other as if the 21st century (or the 20th for that matter) had never arrived.

Asia – China is producing enough pollution to create global warming and cooling, all by themselves; and they are inches away from starting an East Asian War with Japan and the Philippines. They also are spending increased billions on upgrading their army, air force, and navy and have nukes and missiles capable of reaching all the Democrat-ruled cities on the West Coast.

The Middle East – Thanks to the ever-so-tough agreement that The Obama Administration so cleverly worked out with them, Iran will have its long-sought after nuclear weapons in a few weeks. They also got their bank accounts back and thus are able to buy whatever tech goodies they still lack to launch the nukes at Israel, the US, and Europe. In Afghanistan, Americans are still being killed almost as fast as they are in Chicago; and in Iraq, the defeated and thing-of-the-past al-Qaeda has taken over the major city of Fallujah. And just to underline how utterly al-Qaeda has failed and been neutered by the brilliant strategy of The Commander-in-Chump, they have also taken over the dominant role in the Syrian insurgency and thus qualified for free arms and ammunition from America.

Russia and Eastern Europe – Just to show that they are not ungrateful for being allowed to take over Georgia, Russia has invaded Crimea in the Ukraine so that Obama, who is more flexible now after His election, can act shocked and surprised (but magnanimously allow that too.) B. Hussein has told our long-time friend and ally, Israel, that they just damn well better watch their step and do as they are told. Unfortunately, they snarkily responded, asking The Anointed One if He understood the meaning of “fat chance.”

So there’s Obozo, out in the cold of a global warming winter, having sand kicked in His faces by every bully on the beach, bewildered and wondering “what the hell went wrong?”

The truly frightening part of this geo-political tragi-comedy is that China and Russia are extremely aware of the implications of Obama’s actions and inaction. Both of them are on the move militarily since they rightly understand that the Community Organizer, with his knee-jerk Marxist philosophy and his crippling narcissistic ego, will do nothing of consequence to stop them. It is far from being beyond the realm of possibility that before Obozo leaves office, they will feel strong enough to invade us. A two-front war from the East Coast and the West, with a military that is a limp-wristed shadow of its former self, would be, as they say in Washington, problematic (especially if The Usurper and His party get their heart’s desire, gun control.) Without the “rifle behind every blade of grass,” our destruction as a nation would be inevitable. But then, is this not what the Democrats and their Greatest President of All Time want?

All this has transpired in a short five years, and the supposed conservatives in government – closet Metrosexuals? – have done almost nothing to even slow it down, much less stop it. If the 2014 election doesn’t return our government to We the People, I fear we are going to be in for a long, very rough, and painful ride.

The Left’s War on Capitalism





Capitalism

Democrats and leftists love to declare “war” on “problems”.  We’ve seen the War on Poverty, the War on Drugs, the War on Terror. They also, along with their running dog propagandists in the “mainstream” media, love to accuse their opponents of things like waging War on Women, War on Education, War on Science, etc. Republicans too, stoop to this on occasion, having accused Obama of a War on Coal. But to cut to the chase, the Democrats and Establishment Republicans use all this as obfuscation – distraction and cover – for the fact that what is going on, and has since at least 1913, is a War on Capitalism.

Take the War on Coal, for instance. This is not about, as the so-called “environmentalists,” or “greens,” or “conservationists,” or whatever euphemistic misleading name they are calling themselves, an impending environmental disaster. We have had coal-fired plants since 1910, and America’s air and water are among the cleanest in the world. The phony “science” and hysterical, unchallenged Chicken Little assertions of imminent planetary destruction are lies aimed at scaring the public into allowing the shutdown of our power supply, the life-blood of our economic engine.

The same is true of the attacks by the eco-fascists on the oil and gas industries. Again, the technology and methods developed and used for the past 50 years have made these industries some of the cleanest in the world. Yet the greenies, the media, and their Democrat storm troopers in Congress have virtually strangled oil and gas production offshore and on public land, keeping us dependent on oil and gas supplied by foreign sources like Venezuela, Mexico, and the Muslim OPEC states. We have reserves on the land ostensibly owned by We, the People, large enough to meet our needs for the next 300 years. However, the Marxist Democrats and the eco-fascists have twisted the laws and the courts so that they have standing as the definitive experts, the arbiters whose word is final, and leftist judges, legislating from the bench have allowed them to dictate how our land can be used, the majority, science, and common sense be damned.

The left also used concern for largely non-existent threats to the environment to create the totally unconstitutional and deceptively named Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Although created by Republican Tricky Dick Nixon, a fiscal conservative, but otherwise liberal, Rockefeller Republican who also, along with arch-globalist, Henry Kissinger, “opened China”, the EPA has been run and done the bidding of Democrats ever since. No one actually knows how much the thousands of regulations – issued by unelected agency bureaucrats, not by our elected representatives in Congress – cost the American economy, since the ripple effect from them is so huge, but it is estimated in the hundreds of billions of dollars. The “benefits” from these regulations exist only in computer models and the deluded minds of fanatic greenies, not in reality. However, the damage done to American capitalism, and thus, We, the People, is very real indeed.

The massive “bailouts” begun by Bush, but put on steroids by Obama, did nothing for We, the People. They were colossal exercises in income redistribution: our hard earned income, in the form of tax money, was redistributed to already vastly wealthy neo-fascist bankers, brokers, and unions. The ever-increasing national debt exacerbated by this and subsequent unchecked spending on “entitlements” and other government boondoggles will, if not reversed, eventually swallow us entirely, like a Florida sinkhole. This is a fact. Period. Yet Obama and the Democrats incessantly demand we increase the debt even more, like passengers urging a drunk driver on a mountain road to go even faster. And if you still don’t get it that the Affordable Healthcare Act is about total government control of your life, you are probably a Democrat, yourself.

Part of the problem is that far too few Americans actually know what Marxism, communism or fascism are. If they are under 50, chances are it was only briefly covered or not mentioned at all in the indoctrination that passes for education in modern government schools. Capitalism, too, has been given short shrift, and if brought up, is portrayed as greedy, evil, oppressive, and unfair. They have been taught that “socialism” and “the collective good” – euphemisms for communism – are best. What they have not been told is that communism has never succeeded and where it has existed has been through police states, military subjugation, and often mass murder on a scale that makes Hitler look like an amateur.

Many have no idea who Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, and Mao were, and almost none have read Antonio Gramsci. If you haven’t read Gramsci, I suggest you do so as soon as you can. Gramsci was an Italian communist theorist in the 1930s, who laid out how to achieve a revolution without firing a shot. This was to be accomplished by infiltrating and taking over the news media, education, and entertainment. Sound familiar?

The result of this is that even though a cursory reading of Obama’s “biographies” and the public statements of his appointees, e.g., Van Jones, Anita Dunn, Ron Bloom, makes it crystal clear that they are hard-core communist revolutionaries, most people haven’t a clue as to what that means or how dangerous it truly is.

A Betrayal Most Foul





US President Barack Obama (R) and Republ

In 2010, We the People elected a majority of who we thought were conservative Republicans to Congress and state offices all over the country. The state folks have done a pretty good job, standing up to the unconstitutional acts of the increasingly totalitarian, tyrannical federal behemoth, putting the interests of the people of their various states first. Not so with Congress. In fact, not even close.

Nearly all of the ostensibly conservative Republicans elected to the House ran on the promise that they would – not would try, but would – repeal the un-American and nation-destroying Obamacare. However, not only did they not make any serious efforts to repeal it; they refused to even defund it. Instead, they allowed their “leadership” to sabotage the few who did try. Boehner, McConnell, and their lackey underlings rolled over and acceded to every Democrat demand, accepted blame for every Democrat accusation, gave zero support to those who tried to actually do what We the People elected them to do, and allowed the Party of Marx to score a huge PR victory along with their political one.

Then, amidst all sorts of mealy-mouthed platitudes, excuses, and rationalizations, these turncoats joined with the Establishment RINOS and voted en mass for a budget “deal” that appears to be to the economy what Obama’s “deal” with the Iranian radical Islamists is to foreign policy and national security. This link is to the list of traitors who voted for what may be a fatal increase in our debt and taxes. If your representative is not among the 60 Americans who voted against it, your district has a major problem that can only be fixed by getting rid of the fraud who currently occupies the office.

Bad as all this has been, it’s not the end of the betrayal. Boehner, McConnell, Paul Ryan, and the rest of the Establishment RINO misleadership are maneuvering, manipulating, lying, intimidating, and pretty much doing the bidding of what are now clearly their Democrat masters, in preparation for ramming “immigration reform” (better known as amnesty for the criminals who have illegally entered the country by the millions) down the throats of We the People. And in their haste to lick the Gucci loafers of their multinational corporate “donors” who want millions of uneducated, unskilled people willing to work for far less than most Americans, the RINOs have joined forces with the overseers of the Democrat Entitlement Plantation who want millions added to the welfare rolls, millions who will then overwhelmingly vote Democrat.

It’s my guess that the 60 real Americans who voted against the budget “deal” will also vote against amnesty. But 60 out of 435 ain’t gonna cut it. We the People need to stand up and let the rest of these traitors know, in no uncertain terms, that we will not allow our country to be commandeered in what amounts to a Marxist and neo-fascist coup d’état. We have sat by, like the good law-abiding citizens that we are, while our Constitution has been used as toilet paper, while the flag has been trampled in the mud, while our laws have been ignored and broken by criminals and our government (same thing?), and while our government has given aid and comfort to our enemies. We have allowed a small, radical minority to take control of the country, a minority whose real and low-profile leaders control vast wealth; a minority out to subsume us, willing or not, into a collectivist world government. It’s way past time to say “No more!” and take whatever actions are necessary to return us to the Rule of Law.

I highly recommend that everyone read “Rules for Radicals,” the book by Saul Alinsky, mentor of Obama, the Clintons, and most of the people in the current administration. The strategy and tactics presented work both ways. I would also strongly urge people to start seriously looking at what the left does, since it clearly is working a heck of a lot better than what the right has been doing. The notion that using their tactics “brings us down to their level” is simply stupid. Do you not shoot back at an enemy that is shooting at you because it “brings us down to their level”? Folks, these people are shooting at us.

We need to continue what the Tea Party did in 2010 and take to the streets again. Public demonstrations in towns and cities across the nation send a clear message, not only to Washington, but to us, We, the People, that we are strong, we are the majority, and we are not submitting or going away. In addition, we need to think and act outside the proverbial box. For instance, we need to encourage the states to empanel Grand Juries and bring charges against the miscreants in the federal government, since it is obvious that the “Justice” Department won’t. Then, we need to seriously consider marching on Washington and placing the indicted under arrest.

Our government exists by “…the consent of the governed…” I strongly suggest we withdraw that consent.
