Why are these people here?

Does political correctness have a peak? Is there a summit to absurdity? A day barely goes by without some sort of bastardization of the language, or an assault on our institutions. Many are flabbergasted at this Cat in the Hat culture that has turned common sense into a Dr. Seuss caricature.
There is a glimmer of light peeking through the clouds. A feminist icon has taken a stand on the definition of motherhood. Here is an excerpt from Brietbart.com:
Feminist commentator Germaine Greer has criticised Elton John for calling his partner David Furnish “mother” of their two sons.
Speaking at the Hay Literary Festival, Greer accused the men of “deconstructing motherhood”, criticising them for the fact that Furnish was listed as mother on their children’s birth certificates.
“Sometimes I think that really the problem is the concept of motherhood, which we can’t give any real structure to,” she said.
“Sir Elton John and his ‘wife’ David Furnish have entered on the birth certificate of their two sons that David Furnish is the mother. I’m sorry. That will give you an idea of how the concept of motherhood has emptied out. It’s gone, it’s been deconstructed.”
the couple’s children were born with the help of IVF treatment and share the same surrogate mother, who John and Furnish claim they “love like a sister”.
Progressives created this mess. They need to sweep up this nonsense and put everything back in its proper place.
How can anyone dispute Barack Obama’s disdain for the United States? The Anointed One proudly trumpeted his plan to transform America, and he’s making good on his promise. His totalitarian vision is to empower federal government bureaucracies by executive decrees and flooding the country with foreigners who subscribe to his ideology. And what better way to do this than by seeding the country with refugees.
Phyllis Schlafly put it more succinctly. She declared Obama is waging a war on America. WND reported the following:
President Obama is instigating a war on the United States, according to longtime conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly. But the president hasn’t dropped a bomb or fired a shot; rather, he has opened the country to tens of millions of immigrants and refugees from all over the world, including from Muslim countries that hate America.
“It is waging war on America,” Schlafly told WND. “Muslims would like to take over the world and establish their caliphate, and Obama has let so many Muslims in. I don’t think he should let any Muslims in this country. There’s no reason why they should come in.”
In a study released last fall, the Center for Immigration Studies reported nearly 300,000 immigrants from predominantly Muslim countries entered the United States from 2010 to 2013. That brought the total number of immigrants from predominantly Muslim countries to 2.4 million, compared to 2.1 million in 2010 and 1.5 million in 2000.
However, simple immigration is not the whole story. Each year, the U.S. also welcomes thousands of refugees – foreigners who seek refuge in the U.S. because they either were persecuted or fear persecution in their home countries.
The State Department, which oversees the refugee resettlement program, aims to resettle 70,000 total refugees a year. It is estimated that roughly 40 percent of all refugees come from predominantly Muslim countries. WND has reported the U.S. has accepted nearly 2 million refugees from Muslim countries since 1992.
America prides itself on the freedoms bestowed upon us by our creator. But what happens when a totalitarian ideology bludgeons its way into our culture and city streets? Do we meekly shut up and oblige our wannabe masters, or, do we confront these invaders who us the courts, political correctness and violence as a means to an end.
Jon Ritzheimer, a free speech advocate, has declared there is ‘tyranny in America’ after he organized a rally that included a draw the prophet Muhammad contest. And as you can expect, death threats began to roll in.
Ritzheimer planned the protest, billed as "Freedom of Speech Rally," in response to an ISIS-inspired attack outside a controversial Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest May 3 in Texas.
“I’m having to sell my house. My family is going into hiding,” an armed Ritzheimer, flanked by burly men wearing "F--- Islam!" T-shirts, told reporters at the rally. “They’re calling for lone wolves to behead me. That’s terrorism right here in America.”
The latest rally also included a Prophet Muhammad cartoon drawing contest, which drew plenty of people protesting the protest by holding signs with messages like "Love not hate" and "Stop the hate."
We can expect more confrontations such as this, especially since Barack Obama is seeding the United States with Muslim refugees.
Do you really own your money? If you did, you wouldn’t have to justify large withdrawals from your bank account to the IRS and United States Justice Department.
Denny Hastert was indicted for doing just that. The former Speaker of the House withdrew large amounts of money out of his own account to pay off a blackmailer. The last time I checked, blackmail was a crime; apparently not in the Age of Obama. What constitutes a crime these days is claiming that your money is your own and telling the federal government it’s none of their damn business what you’re doing with it.
The federal government is constantly scheming to control citizens and their pocketbooks. The latest to come down the pike is banning paper money and going all digital. This may sound benign, but in reality, the federal government could induce account holders to spend in an attempt to spur economic growth, or lose their savings. The Telegraph reported the following:
In this futuristic world, all payments are made by contactless card, mobile phone apps or other electronic means, while notes and coins are abolished. Your current account will no longer be held with a bank, but with the government or the central bank. Banks still exist, and still lend money, but they get their funds from the central bank, not from depositors.
Having everyone’s account at a single, central institution allows the authorities to either encourage or discourage people to spend. To boost spending, the bank imposes a negative interest rate on the money in everyone’s account – in effect, a tax on saving.
Faced with seeing their money slowly confiscated, people are more likely to spend it on goods and services. When this change in behavior takes place across the country, the economy gets a significant fillip.
The recipient of cash responds in the same way, and also spends. Money circulates more quickly – or, as economists say, the “velocity of money” increases.
What about the opposite situation – when the economy is overheating? The central bank or government will certainly drop any negative interest on credit balances, but it could go further and impose a tax on transactions.
So whenever you use the money in your account to buy something, you pay a small penalty. That makes people less inclined to spend and more inclined to save, so reducing economic activity.
Such an approach would be a far more effective way to damp an overheated economy than today’s blunt tool of a rise in the central bank’s official interest rate.
He, who controls the money, controls the world.
I remember back in the day when I used to believe Islam was just another religion like Christianity. That, of course, was before 9/11. I used to believe that all people yearned to be free and desired self-government, and the only circumstance holding these poor unfortunates back were dictators who exploited them.
Basically, I believed in the Bush Doctrine that if people were freed from oppressive regimes, they would embrace peace, democracy and capitalism. Events have shown we couldn’t have been more wrong.
People are beginning to realize that Islam is not compatible with Western values; it is a political ideology in the guise of a religion. For the West to survive, we as a people, have to come to this basic understanding.
Andrew McCarthy, a contributor to National Review and former prosecutor, expressed those same views on the Blaze:
The difference is, Soviet ideology never traveled under the banner of religious liberty, and there was never the kind of squeamishness about examining it that we have now. And … the best way to combat it is to get over that squeamishness.
What we have to understand is that there is a difference between what we ought to regard as Islam the religion … which is something that is adhered to by, you know, many many many patriotic American Muslims, who have no desire whatsoever to have a United States that’s structured like the totalitarian societies that a lot of them either left or reject for their own reasons.
So we have to distinguish that from this political Islamist ideology that is rooted in Islamic doctrine, and a very literal interpretation of it, and that rejects a division between church and state, or between mosque and state.
That ideology is — it has a religious component — but it’s a political ideology overwhelmingly. And it ought to be dealt with as one. And we should stop — you know our public officials should stop trying to label it as something it isn’t. It’s a political, totalitarian conquest ideology that has certain religious elements to it.
We have to start being honest with ourselves.

Have you ever wondered why it takes so long and cost so much to implement and complete a government funded infrastructure project? Contractors not only deal with the hassle of overcoming mountains of bureaucratic red tape, corrupt politicians and lawsuits by environmental groups, they also have to comply with political correctness.
A Monroe, NC business owner pleaded guilty to conspiracy and money laundering charges to federal prosecutors because his company wasn’t a minority owned business. And as you can expect, a company that builds roads needs government contracts. Boggs Paving Company submitted the lowest bid, but the owner didn’t have a vagina or the right skin color. Now, he’s going to jail.
According to the federal indictment, Boggs and his co-defendants conspired to get federal and state contracts by claiming a minority-owned small business would do part of the work. Under state contracting rules, 15 percent of work on such projects must be completed by minority or female-owned companies.
Prosecutors say millions in payments to a bank account in the name of Styx Cuthbertson Trucking were later funneled back to Boggs Paving. To aid the fraud, magnetic decals for Cuthbertson covered the Boggs logo on trucks at the construction sites.
The Monroe expressway project was not included in the federal indictment, but records obtained by AP show that Monroe Bypass Constructors included Styx Cuthbertson Trucking on the 2011 list of minority contractors it submitted as part of its winning bid.
Charbonneau said Cuthbertson was removed from the state-approved list of minority contractors on the project.
“As with all major construction projects, NCDOT publicly advertised this project and awarded this project to the lowest bidder,” Charbonneau said. “It was not awarded through fraud.”
If you’re a white male business owner, you’d better have an understanding that your kind is persona non grata. However, you could pull a Bruce Jenner and become a woman or an inverse Michael Jackson by darkening your skin and perming your hair. I hear this transformation is becoming all the rave.

Bob Schieffer, host of Face of the Nation, is retiring from CBS after decades of massaging the backs of democrats and propagating their political ideology to millions of trusting Americans.
Mr. Schieffer reminisced about the era of colander journalism and lamented the death throes of thought conformity.
“We now don’t know where people get their news, but what we do know is they’re bombarded with information 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Most of the information is wrong and some of it is wrong on purpose,” Schieffer said. “It is our job, I think, in mainstream journalism to try to cut through this mall of information and tell people what we think is relevant in what they need to know. That is the job of the journalist and I have to say it’s harder and harder.”
Since when did journalism become dog whistle for public relations for the Democratic Party?
Mr. Schieffer is absolutely shameless, and without a doubt not the sharpest pencil in the drawer, too. He is absolutely stunned at the amount of money that is pervasive in politics.
“I mean our campaigns have become, ‘I have more billionaires than you do so I’m a viable candidate.’ I don’t think that’s what the founders had in mind when they started this country,” he told “CBS This Morning.” “I don’t know where this goes, but I think something is going to have to change on that front because what we have now is people have to sign up with so many special interests before they get to Washington, that once they’re here they can’t compromise. And when you have a government and a legislative body that can’t compromise, you have what we have — a legislative body that’s in constant and total gridlock.”
Schieffer echoed similar comments during an interview with The Associated Press earlier this week, saying he’s disturbed by the changes he’s seen in Washington. It’s a meaner place, he said, partially fueled by Internet anonymity but also by a lack of collegiality. Lawmakers of all stripes and their families used to know each other better but now spend more time in their districts and less time in the capital. Some families never move.
I can tell you where this is going. It’s called totalitarianism. That’s what happens when a central government consolidates power. And this yahoo is surprised at the amount of money in politics? The richest suburbs in the nation are in Washington D.C., and he’s surprised at the amount awash in that town?
Mr. Schieffer and his ilk can’t even comprehend the fact that gridlock is exactly what our founding fathers wanted. That was their intent. The Bill of Rights was designed to check the federal government; not the states and their citizens. But these statists have corrupted our founding principles as well.
Enjoy your retirement, Mr. Schieffer. Don’t worry, I’m sure Face the Nation will continue to be a mouthpiece for the Democratic Party.
Senator Elizabeth Warren is a liar and a hypocrite? Say it isn’t so! Surely, there must be a mistake. How can a populist politician be so callous as to profit off the misery of others by buying foreclosed homes, presumably once owned by the middle-class, and then flipping them for a handsome profit without appearing to be a predator?
Why, you have family members do it for you, of course.
Warren's campaign said the claims were baseless and that she and her husband helped family members purchase the houses, since they were in a financially secure position to do so.
"Elizabeth and Bruce are fortunate to be able to help their family," said Alethea Harney, Warren's press secretary, in a statement. "They have been able to help relatives buy their homes and after Elizabeth's brother lost his job as a construction worker, Elizabeth and Bruce were able to provide him support to buy and fix up properties."
Senator Elizabeth Warren didn’t flip that house; her family did. That’s what she would have everyone believe. National Review attributes some of Warren’s wealth to her vulture capitalistic nature:
As a professor of law at the University of Pennsylvania, and later as a visiting professor at Harvard Law School, she was doing well for herself, building both her professional profile and her wealth. She owes at least part of her considerable financial success, it seems, to snapping up these properties in her native Oklahoma and turning them for a profit — though today that’s not a practice she endorses for the many people looking to emulate her success. The Boston Herald reported on these purchases during Warren’s Senate run in 2012, noting that she invested in “the often topsy-turvy real-estate market of the 1990s” and that her actions “don’t seem to square with her public statements about the latest real estate boom and bust.”
What Senator Warren did in Oklahoma, stays in Oklahoma, except of course, her Cherokee heritage.

On this Memorial Day, we shall take the time to remember the fallen who have sacrificed so much at the hands of our nation’s most implacable foe: Man-Made Global Warming.
No burqa can hide the sinister machinations of this amorphous enemy. No Northeastern snowstorm on this venerable holiday can placate this Carbon Dioxide monster from heating up the world’s surface.
We must conquer the enablers who dare finger the world’s thermostat. We must lop off the hand that rocks the world! Modernity, along with a technology ravenous populace, has shaken the very foundation of statism, and this will not stand!
The real enemy of the United States – Nay! – of all mankind are Climate Deniers who poke holes in our flawed data; make fun of our preposterous doomsday proselytizing; point out that not one of our models have come to fruition; or reveal our manipulation of surveys and research.
These ingrates don’t realize our subterfuge is a tactical maneuver to save them and the planet at large. We are the ones they’ve been waiting for, even if they don’t realize it!
So today, let’s remember the casualties of man-made global warming: unscrupulous politicians who were voted out of office; opportunistic scientist who’ve lost their grant money and reputations; fools who paid carbon reduction fees; and the media who’re on the frontlines of this massive fraud.
No wreath will be laid for the disgraced. No, Tomb of the Unknown Fleeced to be guarded. Only pride in the conviction that this war will go on, until the freedoms and bank accounts of every American shall be rendered – of the federal government, by the federal government, and for the federal government, so help Mother Earth.
The best way a handful of businesses in any given industry can guarantee profits, marginalize competitors, and bailout their mismanaged company is to become a government sponsored cartel. We’ve seen this “most favored” status conferred upon select banks, auto makers, and various businesses that know how to milk the government teat. Their names need not be listed. We all know who they are.
The health insurance industry has become the next “too big to fail” government sponsored cartel and Obamacare is the vehicle for which a handful of businesses will shelter themselves from a massive failure with the expectation that taxpayers will bail them out.
The handwriting is on the wall. Performance is not meeting expectations. This means massive increases in premiums. Big insurance knew this was coming, as well as their enablers in Washington D.C.
The Washington Examiner reported the following:
This is an ominous sign for the future of Obamacare, because two federal programs that were supposed to act as training wheels for insurers in the early years of Obamacare by absorbing excess risk are set to expire after 2016. If insurers don't do a better job of attracting a healthier risk pool, 2017 promises to be a rocky year for insurance markets, regardless of which party is in control of the White House.
In the first two years of the implementation of Obamacare's insurance exchanges (2014 and 2015), insurers set rates with the expectation that the government would absorb a certain degree of risk and they made assumptions about the medical costs of their enrollees.
And here comes the rub:
In a scenario in which there are massive industry-wide losses (and thus there isn't enough money being raised by the program to make it self-sustaining), Republicans argued that the program would take on the characteristics of an open-ended taxpayer bailout.
At first, the administration said the program would be budget neutral – meaning it would only make payments to insurers up to the amount that was collected from other insurers. But that led to a furious backlash from insurers last spring, as lobbyists and company executives warned of serious rate hikes for policies starting in 2015 unless they were given added reassurance that the federal money would continue to flow
Now that insurers have had more time to look at the claims coming in from those enrolling from Obamacare, they're finding that the pool of customers is older and sicker than originally projected, driving up medical costs. Meanwhile, federal help isn't what they anticipated.
Or, do they? Does anyone truly believe Washington D.C. is going to let this government program fail?

On Memorial Day, Americans honor those who fought and died for a cause greater than themselves. Few have experienced the horrors of war. Many know the pain of losing a loved one on a distant battlefield.
Here is an excerpt from an article published in the Cecil Daily on how Decoration Day became Memorial Day:
Three years after the Civil War ended, on May 5, 1868, the head of an organization of Union veterans — the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) — established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers.
Maj. Gen. John A. Logan declared that Decoration Day should be observed on May 30. It is believed that date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country.
The first large observance was held that year at Arlington National Cemetery, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C.
The ceremonies centered around the mourning-draped veranda of the Arlington mansion, once the home of Gen. Robert E. Lee. Various Washington officials, including Gen. and Mrs. Ulysses S. Grant, presided over the ceremonies. After speeches, children from the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Orphan Home and members of the GAR made their way through the cemetery, strewing flowers on both Union and Confederate graves, reciting prayers and singing hymns.
Russia has come up with a novel idea on how to deal with NGO’s that meddle in their internal affairs: outlaw them. Here is an excerpt from CNN:
The law was passed earlier in the week by both houses of the Russian parliament. It says that a foreign non-governmental organization can be recognized as undesirable if it poses a threat to the constitutional order of the Russian Federation or to the country's defense and security.
Maybe, we should do the same thing, but instead, we would target NGO’s like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac; it was these two organizations that brought about the 2008 financial collapse along with their enablers in Washington D.C.
How about States’ outlaw agencies that undermine their constitutional prerogatives? Our prisons would be filled with federal agents who arbitrarily abuse citizens and bully state governments into submission.
Russia might be onto something.
This is a good tutorial on the original intent of the U.S. Senate and how the 17th Amendment undermined the authority of state governments.

Obamacare has once again befuddled Democrats. What was obvious to Conservatives years ago has come to pass, and liberals are scratching their heads wondering what went wrong. Here is Rep. Jim McDermott D-Wash marinating in his stupidity:
After paying premiums, many low- and middle-income patients still face high costs when trying to use their coverage. There's growing concern that the value of a health insurance card is being eaten away by rising deductibles, the amount of actual medical costs that patients pay each year before coverage kicks in.
"I think it's going to be the next big problem," said Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., a congressional leader on health care.
"We've got some 17 million more people covered ... but they can't access the care they seem to be entitled to," McDermott said. "It costs too much to use the care. That's the deceptive part about it."
Since virtually all U.S. residents are now required to have health insurance by President Barack Obama's health care law, McDermott said Democrats have a responsibility to make sure coverage translates to meaningful benefits.
How long have we been complaining about this? McDermott the Moron and his fellow libtard brigade are just figuring this out? They caused this problem, yet, we’re to believe they’re going to fix it?
We need to invoke Article V of the U.S. Constitution. States have to intervene on our behalf. The citizens of this country need protection from the likes of Rep. Jim McDermott D-Wash and his confederates in that idiocracy called Washington D.C.
Ted Nugent has some advice for the Class of 2015. Actually, these are words everyone should live by. Here are some of his bullet points as posted in the Daily Caller:
Life is not fair. Get used to it.
Social justice is a commie scam. Read the drivel of Saul Alinsky and fight it with all you’ve got.
Nobody owes you jacksquat. You will either earn your own way, or feel like a helpless leech. There is no middle ground.
Economic equality is for sheep. If you really believe we are all equal in our capabilities you will go nowhere.
The minimum wage is for minimum wage earners. If you believe you are worth more, go get it. Show by your productivity and professionalism that you are better than minimum. Upgrade awaits upgraders.
The government cannot create jobs for you. You must create your own worth by proving yourself to be a gungho benefit for your employer. If you think you can do better, by all means, do better.
Partying should not include dangerous or foolish behavior. Clean and sober always provides the most memorable parties without the danger of puking, stumbling, making an ass of yourself or passing out and dying.
Peer pressure is for sheep. Stand up for what you believe in.
The whole world sucks, but America still sucks less. Learn your history and be the best we the people participant that you can be.
Don’t fall for the curse of political correctness. Feeling good is not as important as doing good.
Posture and hygiene matters. Carry yourself with dignity and treat others as you would have them treat you.
Tell me who you go with and I will tell you what you are. Avoid losers for they will drag you down.
Sometimes you give the world the best you got and you get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you got anyway.
How can anyone proclaim Muhammad is a prophet of the same God as Jesus Christ? It is an absurd comparison. Here are a couple of illustrations from It's All About Muhammad.com depicting the acts of the most perfect man in the Islamic world.
MUHAMMAD NEVER FORGOT INSULTS. Here, Muhammad’s first cousin Ali beheads one of the Badr captives, Nader al-Harith, a man who had frequently mocked him in Mecca over his claims that God talked to him. Nader used to follow him around and offer to recite Persian epic tales to the people he had addressed, telling them the Persian stories were more interesting than Muhammad’s prophet stories
THE MURDER OF ASMA, the daughter of Marwan. Muhammad wanted her dead because of a poem she composed criticizing the tribes of Yathrib for failing to retaliate against him after he assassinated an elderly sheikh who had composed satirical verses about him. The assassin Muhammad recruited at the mosque broke into her home late at night and plunged his sword into her while she slept with her five children, including a newborn. Only the infant is depicted here.
Maybe, liberals should ask, “What would Muhammad do?” instead of Jesus. I don’t recall the Nazarene raiding, assassinating, enslaving or engaging in acts of pedophilia or polygamy. One of these days, that question may save their life.

One of the rites of passage in becoming a responsible adult is obtaining a driver’s license. We’ve all been through the rigors of passing both written and driving test before being allowed behind the wheel. No one wants a pimply faced teenager let loose on the public without him first demonstrating knowledge of the rules of the road.
When I moved to North Carolina I had to take a written test, even though I had been driving for over ten years. I, once again, had to take a test upon renewal a couple of years ago. This is the state’s way of making sure I know what the hell I’m doing on the public thoroughfares. This is reasonable.
So, why can’t we make voters take a test demonstrating they have knowledge of the rules of our republic? Furthermore, shouldn’t there be a set of qualifications to ensure the safety of the public weal from ignorant, avaricious voters who don’t know, or care about the issues at large? Hell, a majority doesn’t even know their state senator or representative, yet, they’re pulling the lever.
I admit this barrier will not stop the stupid. Where there is a will, there is a way. Besides, we are in a period when citizenship is not valued. Illegal aliens flood our streets and they don’t have driver’s licenses. I’m sure their voting as well.
Last year, I was driving on I-85, near Raleigh, when I happened to look in my rearview mirror. A car was barreling down upon me. Mind you, I was going at least 75 miles per hour. I got the hell out of the way. Sure enough, a young man flew by me as though I was standing still. What was scary is he had a donut tire on the rear passenger side of his car. That tire is for emergency purposes only. Needless to say, I slowed down and stayed away from this imbecile. I only wish we could do the same with liberal voters.
Are liberals capable of honesty? The scam de jour is a fabricated survey by a gay activist with a PH.D. The American Spectator reported the following:
Two aspiring political scientists exposed a widely referenced study, which maintained that homosexuals discussing gay marriage with citizens proved “capable of producing a cascade of opinion change,” as a total fraud.
Berkeley grad student Joshua Kalla and Stanford professor David Broockman, eager to add to the project with their own study, discovered that the survey firm identified in “When Contact Changes Minds: An Experiment on Transmission of Support for Gay Equality” maintained “no familiarity with the project,” “never had an employee with the name of the staffer” believed as assisting the research, and “denied having the capabilities” to conduct such an endeavor.
The debunking unleashed myriad reactions, none as gleeful as the ones that greeted the initial study late last year.
“Perhaps he meticulously planned the whole thing with malice aforethought,” Duke sociologist Kieran Healy speculates about Michael LaCour, the gay UCLA Ph.D. accused of fabricating data. Widener University law professor John Culhane, lashing out at how he imagines conservatives will spin the news, argues at Politico.com that proof of the concoction merely “tells us… that the gay canvasser study should be tried again; properly, this time. Not that gay canvassers have no effect.”
Doesn’t this sound familiar? One of the biggest scams perpetuated on the world is another survey that touts 97% consensus on man-made global warming. Forbes reported the following:
Global warming alarmists and their allies in the liberal media have been caught doctoring the results of a widely cited paper asserting there is a 97-percent scientific consensus regarding human-caused global warming. After taking a closer look at the paper, investigative journalists report the authors’ claims of a 97-pecent consensus relied on the authors misclassifying the papers of some of the world’s most prominent global warming skeptics. At the same time, the authors deliberately presented a meaningless survey question so they could twist the responses to fit their own preconceived global warming alarmism.
The only thing I’m alarmed about is a liberal with a doctorate degree.
