The SALT Exodus

When Republicans passed their tax reform legislation, the majority of Americans noticed a bump in their paychecks. It’s always good to keep more of your money; it’s even better to deprive the D.C. swamp of taxpayer largess.

However, certain provisions in this law may have unintended consequences red staters may soon regret. The repeal of SALT deductions (state and local taxes) could trigger an exodus unseen since the days of Moses. Blue states are notoriously expensive to live in. Their politicians are irresponsible spendthrifts as well as the voters who elect them. Once this provision is taken away only the poor and ultra-rich will inhabit these progressive utopias. Here is an excerpt from the Hill:

The recently passed tax bill, which repeals the state and local tax (SALT) deduction, will only speed up the exodus. Thanks to the bill’s passage, many New York taxpayers will save little or nothing despite a cut in the federal rate. The state’s highest earners — who have been footing an outsized share of the bill — will pay tens of thousands of dollars more in income taxes in 2018. In New York alone, loss of the SALT deduction will remove $72 billion a year in tax deductions and affect 3.4 million residents.

And make no mistake: What’s happening in the Big Apple is a microcosm of what’s happening in the nation’s blue states, cities and towns. New York, Los Angeles, Chicago — the places where power and capital have traditionally congregated — have become so over-regulated, so overpriced and mismanaged, and so morally bankrupt and soft on crime that people are leaving in droves. Of course, these high-tax cities are the same places hit hardest by the removal of the SALT deduction.

I admit I loved sticking it to these blue state scumbags. But I can say without hesitation I don’t want these commies becoming my neighbors. That New York accent, bad attitude and progressive politics have no business in the South.

Global Cooling is Here!

PBS featured a global warming bonanza last week with a two-hour documentary followed by an hour long musing by Bill Nye, the mechanical engineer guy. I didn’t watch this left-wing fairytale, however, my commie neighbor did, and he was all excited about it.

Liberals would have us believe carbon dioxide, which is essential for life to exist on this planet, is a pollutant and must be contained. They refuse to acknowledge the sun’s influence, or any historical import, such as the Little Ice Age or the Medieval Warm Period. Because, these self-important twits believe this is year zero, God is dead, and they are masters of the universe.

Back in March 2013, Forbes published a lengthy article on liberal self-deception. Even though I didn’t watch PBS’s disinformation campaign, I’m quite sure they left out the following indisputable facts.

The increase in global temperatures since the late 19th century just reflects the end of the Little Ice Age. The global temperature trends since then have followed not rising CO2 trends but the ocean temperature cycles of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) and the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO). Every 20 to 30 years, the much colder water near the bottom of the oceans cycles up to the top, where it has a slight cooling effect on global temperatures until the sun warms that water. That warmed water then contributes to slightly warmer global temperatures, until the next churning cycle.

Those ocean temperature cycles, and the continued recovery from the Little Ice Age, are primarily why global temperatures rose from 1915 until 1945, when CO2 emissions were much lower than in recent years. The change to a cold ocean temperature cycle, primarily the PDO, is the main reason that global temperatures declined from 1945 until the late 1970s, despite the soaring CO2 emissions during that time from the postwar industrialization spreading across the globe.

The 20 to 30 year ocean temperature cycles turned back to warm from the late 1970s until the late 1990s, which is the primary reason that global temperatures warmed during this period. But that warming ended 15 years ago, and global temperatures have stopped increasing since then, if not actually cooled, even though global CO2 emissions have soared over this period. As The Economist magazine reported in March, “The world added roughly 100 billion tonnes of carbon to the atmosphere between 2000 and 2010. That is about a quarter of all the CO2 put there by humanity since 1750.” Yet, still no warming during that time. That is because the CO2 greenhouse effect is weak and marginal compared to natural causes of global temperature changes.

But that would mean we’re not Gods! Somebody shut this denier down!

Durham City Council Sides with Anti-Israeli Activists

Every state has its freak show and Durham has elected to be ours. That’s saying a lot considering North Carolina made national headlines when Charlotte passed its infamous bathroom ordinance. I’m sure all those Triad libtards bristled with envy for not having thought of that one first. However, they sure do dishout their share of San Francisco treats.

As long as I’ve been posting on this blog, Durham has been in the forefront of liberal stupidity. Back in 2010, their Human Relations Council compared Arizona’s immigration law to apartheid in South Africa. A couple of months later, the city council passed a resolution to boycott that great state. I’m sure Arizona was quaking in its boots.

That same month, Durham passed a resolution allowing illegal aliens to use matricula cards as identification at traffic stops. Mind you, North Carolina requires a driver’s license to operate a vehicle. This act directly defied our state law. But as we all know, laws are just a suggestion to liberals.

Durham isn’t a one trick pony. Earlier this month, a band of self-loathing Jews, along with various Muslim organizations, petitioned the city council to ban local police departments from training with Israeli defensive forces, and to put a stop to the “occupation.” Here is an excerpt from the News and Observer:

A coalition of 10 local groups wants the Durham City Council to cut any police ties with Israel, but several local Jewish leaders don't want that to happen.

The Triangle chapter of Jewish Voice for Peace and other groups started circulating a "Demilitarize from Durham2Palestine" petition in October. It has more than 1,200 signatures, but the petition does not show if those who signed are from Durham or not.

Other groups in the coalition are the Abrahamic Initiative on the Middle East, Black Youth Project 100 - Durham Chapter, Durham for All, Inside Outside Alliance, Muslim American Public Affairs Council, Muslims for Social Justice, SpiritHouse, Students for Justice in Palestine at Duke University and Students for Justice in Palestine at UNC Chapel Hill.

Those groups sound reputable, ahem. Beth Brunch is one of those petitioners. She wrote an op-ed that was also published in the Observer. But first get a load of this little gem:

Beth Bruch of Triangle Jewish Voice for Peace said she is concerned with the way Israel's military has been training local police departments.

"We are certainly not blaming Israel for making U.S. police forces racist, we know there’s a long history of racism in the U.S.," Bruch said. But she thinks training makes it worse in terms of racial profiling and use of force in crowd control.

So all cops are racist? Blacks at the Durham police department should be surprised to find that out.

I’m sure Beth Brunch is a highly educated individual. I have no doubt that she’s been well indoctrinate in the liberal art of self-loathing and anti-Americanism. Here is an excerpt from her co-authored op-ed:

Seventy-five years ago, our people, Ashkenazi Jews, were ethnically cleansed from Eastern Europe. Now, as white Jews in the United States, we benefit from white supremacy and recognize we live on land stolen through genocide. Durham rests on the land of the Eno and of the Occaneechee Band of the Saponi Nation.

Here’s another paragraph:

And we know that policing in the U.S. has a long history of violence against black, brown, and queer communities. From surveillance of Muslim families, to traffic stops that target black drivers, to SWAT teams entering black people’s homes illegally, to checkpoints that target immigrant communities, to police murders of black, brown, and disabled people, the everyday militarization of police in Durham and across the country already endangers our communities.

Wow, what a hellhole country we live in. But at least we’re not as bad as Israel. I mean, how dare those people protect themselves from a supremacist ideology that exhorts the death and enslavement of Jews. 

I fear for our people and the people of Israel when I read this kind of crap. After the holocaust, you would think a Jew would know better.

The Daunting Task of De-Obamafication of the Justice Department

Who says Washington D.C. can’t keep a secret? We thought it was peaches and cream during Obama’s tenure in office. The country was led to believe rainbows, unicorns and dancing leprechauns imbued the West Wing. The whole world was at one with an administration it was waiting for. But, of course, it was all a lie. Thanks in large part to the mainstream media.

What we do know is these bureaucracies are highly politicized. These agencies attract people who aren’t exactly friendly to our federalist system. Bureaucrats, by nature, are antagonistic to our worldview. If you don’t believe that ask a Republican on how well these agencies cooperate with our elected representatives. They’ll disabuse you of any notion of a government of the people, by the people and for the people.

Considering how the Obama administration politicized every aspect of our lives, we hoped federal law enforcement could withstand their assault. Come to find out, the rank and file were just as pissed off as the rest of us. The long awaited IG report revealed a major rift between the Justice Department and FBI agents particularly over an investigation of the Clinton Foundation. Here is an excerpt from the Washington Times:

The report describes the relationship between the two agencies as “being under great stress,” and said Mr. McCabe was caught in “an increasingly acrimonious fight for control between the Justice Department and FBI pursuing the Clinton foundation case.”

Former agents said the acrimony started before the election.

One said the relationship fractured under Mr. Holder as agents in field offices across the country did not trust Justice Department lawyers, whom they saw as Washington bureaucrats trying use investigations for political advantage.

The Justice Department, meanwhile, had become frustrated at the rank-and-file agents not always following orders and, at times, strongly disagreeing with superiors.

“I know from talking to some agents in the FBI at that time that there conflicts between the Holder DOJ and its priorities and how the FBI wanted to work cases,” said Danny Defenbaugh, a 33-year FBI agent who retired in 2002.

“The FBI had always taken pride in following the evidence to where it would lead and never allowing politics into their investigation decisions,” Mr. Defenbaugh continued. “But then the DOJ at times would say, ‘we don’t want you to do this.’”

If the Clintons are involved, you can damn well bet there is something shady going on. These people leave a wake of destruction wherever they go. I’m completely amazed at how these two have escaped prison.

The prognosis for de-Obamafication of the U.S. Justice Department is daunting. Again, an excerpt from the Washington Times:

Mr. Adams said it could take years to repair the division, and it could require a housecleaning of leadership at both the FBI and Justice Department.

“The problem is so vast and deeply imbedded in the Justice Department, it will be an extremely difficult thing to dislodge,” Mr. Adams said.

Lew Schiliro, the former head of the FBI’s New York field office, said Attorney General Jeff Sessions needs to take the reins.

“It has to be Sessions,” he said. “The bureau reports to him and the Justice Department reports to him, yet he’s been silent on the issue. He needs to be a strong attorney general.”

I like Attorney General Jeff Sessions, but I don’t think he’s the man for the job.

Global Warming Grifters use Kiddie Shield in Courts

Does anyone remember Dr. James Hansen? You know the man-made global warming loon who believes we have the capability to screw with the earth’s thermostat. Apparently, he’s locked on to one of the Democratic Party’s reliable ruses, in this case a twofer. He’s using children to front lawsuits. Yeah, there’s nothing like a kiddie shield to sway a court. These low-lifes will sink to any level to advance a cause.

Even though Dr. Strangelove’s organization is based in Oregon he’s set his sights on Florida. Here is an excerpt from The Hill:

The group of eight young Florida residents — represented by Oregon-based Our Children's Trust — sued Scott to demand that the state begin working on a court-ordered, science-based "Climate Recovery Plan," the Miami Herald reported.

The group, which is reportedly made up of individuals ranging from 10 to 20 years old, is alleging Scott is not taking steps to combat climate change.

The suit says Scott and his administration have not passed any legislation meant to measure or curb carbon emissions. It also accuses the Florida governor and his administration of not doing anything regarding the threat of rising seas on the coasts.

Are people completely ignorant on how laws are passed in this country? First of all, judges do not have the authority to order an elected body to pass legislation. Second, legislators pass laws not governors. I have a suggestion for Dr. James Hansen and his kiddie shields: Learn how a republican form of government works before you sue them.




Tear Stained Textbook Decries the 2016 Presidential Election

I want you to think back to middle school and try and recollect lessons from your history textbooks. I specifically remember passages outlining the New Deal and the various agencies therein. There were a couple of paragraphs on the Revolutionary War and of course the Civil War but nothing in-depth. And I can most certainly state without hesitation there was not one paragraph explaining the latest presidential election.

Boy have things changed. Take a look at the latest textbook. Here is a blow by blow analysis of the 2016 presidential election as seen through the eyes of a wailing libtard. Your child will be forced to labor through the tear stained pages of a Schleprock who is working out his frustrations on a captive audience. Here is an excerpt from “By the People: A HIstory of the United States” by Pearson:

Trump’s supporters saw the vote as a victory for the people who, like themselves, had been forgotten in a fast-changing America–a mostly older, often rural or suburban, and overwhelmingly white group. Clinton’s supporters feared that the election had been determined by people who were afraid of a rapidly developing ethnic diversity of the country, discomfort with their candidate’s gender, and nostalgia for an earlier time in the nation’s history. They also worried about the mental instability of the president-elect and the anger that he and his supporters brought to the nation.

Back in the day, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln only got a couple of paragraphs. Today, Deplorables get over five pages and none of it flattering. Oh yeah, there is a whole lot of indoctrination going on. This kind of mind-melding reminds of the scene from The Killing Fields.

It’s year zero. God is dead. We must honor the children whose minds are not corrupted by the past. The Democratic Party will provide everything for us.

Libtard Self-Immolates over Fantasy Cause

Don’t sit there and tell me progressives are normal, because there is nothing normal about some of the crap they do. What kind of a person parades around in pussy hats? Who in their right mind believes they can control the earth’s thermostat by controlling carbon dioxide, which by the way, is essential for life.

Some of these people are so delusional they’re willing to self-immolate. A gay rights and environmental activist did just that in a Brooklyn park. Here is an excerpt from the New York Daily News:

“I am David Buckel and I just killed myself by fire as a protest suicide,” read a hand-written suicide note left near the blackened circle of burned grass. “I apologize to you for the mess.”

A second, longer note — left with the first inside an envelope marked “For the police” — said Buckel doused himself in “fossil fuel” before starting the fatal fire as a metaphor for the destruction of the planet.

“My early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselves,” he wrote. “A lifetime of service may best be preserved by giving a life . . . Honorable purpose in life invites honorable purchase in death.

“I hope it is an honorable death that might serve others.”

Hopefully, your stupidity will help the mentally ill get some help. Hadn't this fool left a note, I’m sure the libtards would’ve blamed his death on a rogue gun with a book of matches.



Judge Rules Illegal Aliens Can Sue Prospective Employers

Forward! As America marches into a brave, borderless, multicultural world as dictated by judicial oligarchs. Everyone knows federal judges don’t have the constitutional power to set rules for immigration and naturalization, but apparently nobody gives a crap except Judicial Watch. Here is the latest outrage:

For the second time in a few years, a federal court has ruled that illegal immigrants can sue American employers that refuse to hire them because they require workers to be U.S. citizens or legal residents (green card holders). The latest blow to the rule of law was delivered by an Obama-appointed federal judge in south Florida, who handed a powerful open-borders group a huge victory in a case accusing a major U.S. company of discriminating against an illegal immigrant.

Though years apart, both lawsuits were filed by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), a leftist group that specializes in discrimination lawsuits on behalf of illegal immigrants and has Chicago ties to Obama. MALDEF pushes for free college tuition for illegal immigrants and lowering educational standards to accommodate new migrants. Its leadership refers to the U.S. government’s immigration enforcement effort as racist and xenophobic and says it’s racist to make English the country’s official national language and inhumane to protect the southern border with a fence. Both MALDEF victories involve plaintiffs who benefit from a special Obama amnesty known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) that shields nearly 800,000 illegal aliens under the age of 31 from deportation

How long do you think the United States can exist as a nation when this is going on?



San Jose Attorney Declares Trump Supporters Deserved Beatings

Does anyone remember the 2016 Trump rally in San Jose, California? I'm sure you do because this event was remarkable in its savagery as supporters were chased down and beaten, spat on and egged by a conglomerate of Marxist punks, Muslims, illegal aliens and a media orgasmic with delight.

Well, the city is being sued for their negligence as police were apparently told to stand down and watch brave Americans run a gauntlet of terror and abuse simply because they had a different political view. Here is what the city’s attorney had to say in its defense as reported by Gateway Pundit:

The attorney told the court the Trump supporters should have known they were in danger because Trump rallies are inherently dangerous. “Police did not make the plaintiffs go to the Trump rally. They didn’t make the protesters go to the Trump rally.” But police did make the Trump supporters run the gauntlet of the anti-Trump thugs waiting for them outside the arena.

These rallies are dangerous because the protesters are dangerous! What a jerk.



Forgetting Auschwitz in a Brave Progressive World

Earlier this week, the Washington Examiner reported 66% of millennials and 41% of adults couldn’t explain the significance of Auschwitz. I was absolutely stunned when I read that article. My first thought was how is this possible? This was standard fare in our history curriculum. I was aware of the holocaust in middle school. However, I wasn’t taught the facts on how a vocal and violent minority was able to subjugate a whole country and use that power to commit the greatest atrocity known to mankind.

If I were teaching history, and allowed to demonstrate the Nazification of Germany, I would show two videos: The Nazi Gospels and Hitler’s Empire: The Post War Plan - Nazification. An astute student would recognize the tactics used by today’s Progressives are the same as Hitler’s Brown Shirts. It’s uncanny.

First on their agenda was to takeover schools and brainwash the youth. Children are susceptible to propaganda. They haven’t developed critical thinking skills and therefore are easy targets. The youth were moulded into believing they were special and destined to fix the wrongs of previous generations. Doesn’t that remind you of today’s snowflakes?

Another facet on brainwashing was to take children away from their parents and deny adoption. We see that today. Liberals have declared Christians as dangerous bigots and shouldn’t be allowed to foist their religion on future Americans. Bigotry is a one way street with these people.

A common factor between Hitler’s Germany and today’s Progressives is the marginalization of Christians. Any business or business owner who openly professes their love of Jesus is boycotted, harassed and/or sued. Recently, The New Yorker published an article about Chick-Fil-A’s “infiltration” of Gotham. The writer freaked out over that company’s Christian principles. A couple of decades ago this wouldn’t have been a problem.

This brings us to another favorite tactic employed by totalitarians: fear and denunciation. In the world of Progressives, as it was in 1930’s Germany, Mao’s China and Stalin’s Soviet Union, individualism is frowned upon. People are pigeonholed into subset groups and every aspect of life is politicized. We can’t even watch a football game, movie, television show or an awards ceremony without a bunch of punks shoving their cause de jour in our face. These self-righteous snowflakes have been well indoctrinated in progressive rhetoric; but to others, words just won’t do.

Shaming is the first step to subjugation; violence the second and nothing melds these two principles together like Antifa and groups like it. These fascists have really embraced the Nazi gospels by subscribing to thuggish tactics such as shutting down speech, beating dissenters, terrorizing venues, vandalizing businesses and statues. These snowflakes are convinced of their superior ideology with remarkable assurance. They, like their 20th century predecessors, are indoctrinated in the belief that they too will someday share in the power. But first, all dissenters must be cowed.

One of the ironies these doctrinaires haven’t contemplated is how their elite exempt themselves from the rigours of their own ideology. We see that with today’s environmentalist, politicians and celebrities who laud spartan-esque lifestyles while they enjoy private jets and energy consuming mansions. The Nazis did the exact same thing but through fashion.

A way to virtue signal the superiority of Germanic culture was to dress like peasants. These drab costumes were encouraged because 97% of women’s fashion were dominated by Jews. However, burlap sacks wouldn’t suffice for the upper-echelon. Their wives wanted to look good. So, they enslaved Jews at concentration camps, like Auschwitz, to make dresses especially for them.

As we’ve seen, history is inconsequential to Progressives. They subscribe to a Darwinian ideology that emphasizes an evolving and just society that defies human experience. The ends justify the means to this crowd and the consequences be damned, as though history doesn’t repeat itself.

I’m sure others were shocked to find out 66% of millennials do not understand the significance of Auschwitz; but should we be, after considering what we know about Progressives? In their brave new world we can only hope future generations are fit enough to survive this particular strand of superior ideology.

The Right to "Free Stuff" Caveat

H/T:  Maggies Farm

President Trump Needs to Shame Congress in a Joint Session

That’s it. It’s time for President Trump to march over to Capitol Hill and demand he address a joint session of Congress. I’m convinced the only way this country can put an end to this witch hunt is to publicly shame our so-called public servants. That’s if they’re capable of shame.

First on the agenda is Rod Rosenstein, Robert Mueller and the rest of these swamp creatures. These deep staters need to be pulled out of that miasmic sewer by the gills and flayed on prime time television. Time after time, they have demonstrated complete irreverence for the rule of law or the sanctity of attorney/client privilege. They have wantonly destroyed a patriots life simply because he doesn’t subscribe to the cult of Washington D.C.. Can anyone say General Flynn?

I would give anything to see President Trump stand before Congress and layout the real collusion which is Russia, the DNC, the Obama administration and the Hillary Clinton campaign. And then make the case of how our national security was betrayed by these same people who sold our country’s uranium to a Russian front group. That would be an epic smackdown.

Image result for hillary clinton uranium one

I tell you right now, that would be ratings gold. It would be the most watched television event in broadcast history. And believe me, President Trump is the man to do it.

Snowflakes Demand "Winter Control"

In an age of vitriol and outright stupidity, it’s nice to know their are people out there who have a sense of humor. The Daily Caller published an article about a New York police department that’s fed up with this neverending winter. They threatened to arrest this transgressor if it didn’t get out of town. However, the real humor was posted in the comment section. Here are a couple of examples:

Rational_Db8 Vlad Lenin4 hours ago

New York students stage a walkout to protest being triggered by the threatening violence of winter - proclaiming that only "winter control" laws can rectify the threat and save the CHILlllll-dren!!!

A student victim and survivor proclaims that anyone who doesn't agree with passing strict new winter control laws clearly wants to murder children, and they ought to be jailed for attempted murder.

The students have excoriated President Trump's failure to support increased winter control laws on twitter, stating that his silence proves he's evil and hates all children.

They have presented a demand letter with over a hundred enumerated demands, and state that they will refuse to return to school until their needs are met. Some of the demands include:

1. Elimination of all science denying conservatives who have stated that winter is a naturally occurring event.

2. Ability for all triggered students to not take any test they feel unprepared for, and be given an A for participation instead of a score for the test.

3. The government to provide them with a $100,000 dollar per year for their lifetimes, for their pain and suffering which is the government's fault for failing to protect them from winter.

These are just a few examples of their demands.

Their next stated agenda is to march on Trump Tower, and call for an advertising ban of all journalists and leaders which don't agree to all of their terms.

Jeff Boyington5 hours ago

Democrats saw the police facebook post as overreach and some even went so far as to suggest this was the result of Trump and some said it was "bullying winter". Chuck Schumer demanded an immediate retraction and has blamed Russian interference in meddling with our weather and has sought a FISA warrant into the action of the police.

Democrats Bet Electoral Success on Stalking Horses

Democrats have found a winning template that pretty much repudiates their party’s platform, but falls in line with their deceptive character. The formula is to find candidates who served in the military, profess to be fiscally responsible and believe in the Constitution of the United States while at the same time nebulous on issues that might alarm conservative voters. Basically, Democrats are in search of Connor Lamb clones.

This Sunday’s Charlotte Observer, both on the front page and editorial section, practically lap danced on one of these clones. Dan McCready is thirty-four years old, local, served in the Marines, and an Eagle Scout; yet, somehow he’s a libtard. Go figure.

The “uptown” wine and cheese crowd love this guy. They make no bones about their intent of wheeling this Trojan horse into a conservative district. Here is an excerpt from an op-ed by Taylor Batten extolling this grand deception:

Former Bank of America chief Hugh McColl stood in the Belks’ living room at that March fundraiser, and extolled McCready’s service as a Marine. McColl’s own time in the Marines, and his pride in it, is legendary, so he spoke authoritatively about how the experience would help McCready in Congress.

That was fitting because McCready, like several other congressional candidates around the country, is emphasizing his stint in the military (he led two platoons in Iraq in 2007-08) as a big part of his centrist, country-first persona. It worked for Conor Lamb, a 33-year-old Democrat who won last month in a Pennsylvania district that Donald Trump had carried by 20 points.

It’ll work for Nancy Pelosi too as she shoves her radical anti-American agenda down our throats. Connor Lamb, Dan McCready and their ilk are stalking horses who’ll claim ignorance while the Marxist in leadership trample over the Constitution just like they did in 2008 - 2010.

McCready, just like Lamb, is well funded. He has a war chest of $1.2 millon which far exceeds his primary opponent, Christopher Cano’s measley $46. Not bad for someone who just burst on the scene. I wonder if George Soros cut a check to this Manchurian candidate? I wouldn’t be surprised.

Mind you, Cano has name recognition. He won the 2016 Democratic primary by being true to a progressive agenda in a conservative district. The wine and cheese crowd, along with the Disturber, know this isn’t a winning formula. Cano has to go. The two articles along with their cartoon has made that abundantly clear.

Democrats Disenfranchise American Citizens

Any time you hear Democrats lecturing the citizenry about an issue such as bullying or voter suppression, you can damn well bet that’s exactly what they’re doing. Only in the libtard world can Voter ID and gerrymandered districts be considered a conspiracy to disenfranchise black people. But if you want to know whose vote is truly being suppressed, all you have to do is look at our illegal alien problem and you’ll see it’s the American citizen.

Illegal aliens don’t have the right to vote, but their numbers are so large that they take congressional delegations away from law-abiding states. This allocation influences presidential elections by way of the Electoral College. Shouldn’t that be considered voter suppression? Am I missing something?

Then we have the added bonus of congressmen from these illegal alien districts advocating for more illegal immigration and using taxpayer largess to aid and abet these vocal diasporas. How is this not disenfranchising American voters? There is only one political party that benefits from this blatant devaluation of citizenship and that’s the Democrats.

There’s another element of devaluation and that is the demonization of our culture, traditions and history. If history were taught, students would recognize today’s Democrats mirror the methods of the Radicals in the 19th century. That maybe the reason history is gradually being phased out of our public education system.

Today’s radicals are mimicking their counterparts who instigated the War of Northern Aggression. There were Progressives back then who wanted to control and manipulate the population and the easiest way to do that was to disenfranchise the citizenry. Two years before the war was over, these radicals plotted hegemonic rule in the South. Part of that plan was to grant the franchise to illiterate freedmen while at the same time disenfranchising competent southerners who participated in the “rebellion.” Northern hegemony impoverished the South for generations well after the Great Depression.

In 1890, Governor Wade Hampton of South Carolina lamented this allowance of “so large a mass of ignorant voters” to control government was “a great crime against humanity, civilization, and Christianity.” He also stated the following:

In their senseless advocacy of universal suffrage, they not only thrown wide open the doors leading to American citizenship, admitting thus the Anarchist, the Communist, the Nihilist, and all the other scum of European nations, but they have injected into our body politic millions of ignorant, uneducated blacks, who have no more comprehension of our system of government than their African forefathers had.

The endgame is the same, Progressives are in the process of replacing the citizenry with people who’re more compliant to their worldview. Life, liberty and property are meaningless to people who have no understanding of the American creed and the responsibility that comes with it.  And that's the very definition of a Democratic Party voter.





Republicans Ignore Ghosts of Elections Past

It never ceases to amaze me how Beltway Republicans continuously delude themselves. Here we are looking at a possible blue wave and these yahoos can’t comprehend the reasons why. The ghosts of 2006 are wailing and moaning and shaking their chains hoping to attract the attention of these unprincipled waifs. Even Scrooge had a clue after the third visitation. Does the GOP really need a second?

If Republicans lose the House, the blame rightfully falls on leadership. Conservatives need to disabuse themselves of the notion that the rank and file are responsible for the failings of Speaker Ryan and his coterie of establishment hirelings.That $1.3 trillion omnibus package was thrust upon Congress without notice or even a debate.

So, the first ghost of elections past had to do with unprincipled spending. What about the second? Well, that spook has to do with illegal immigration. Again, Republicans refuse to fund a border wall, or show any leadership when it comes to cracking down on cities and politicians who aid and abet illegal aliens. Instead, they insist on “comprehensive immigration reform” which translates into amnesty. How many politicians have died on that hill? Apparently, not enough.

And finally the third and fatal ghost of elections past are Democrats acting like conservatives. How many times are we going to allow this Trojan horse into the House chamber? We’ve already witnessed this in a number of special elections already. Can anyone say Alabama and Pennsylvania? How can Republicans allow these shapeshifters to gain a toehold in red districts? Could it possibly be that leadership is afraid that they might expose these candidates as nothing more than tools of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer? Wait a minute, wouldn’t that expose Speaker Ryan and Majority Leader McConnell?  It all starts to make sense now.

Celebrity Illegal Alien Caught Outside of the Shadows

Let’s disabuse ourselves of the myth that illegal aliens are hiding in the shadows. The only people who are in the shadows are American citizens who are fighting against this leviathan that consist of third world invaders, Marxist politicians and transnationalist who flout our immigration laws. This monstrosity blots out the rule of law and any semblance of a nation-state that we Lilliputians are desperately trying to maintain.

Just to underscore the brazen attitude of illegal aliens, one only has to turn on his radio and spin the dial and you’ll notice how ubiquitous Spanish language channels are in your area. More importantly, we shouldn’t be surprised that these programs are hosted by illegals. One. a Manuel Duran, was caught the other day.

Duran, 42, is from El Salvador and has lived in the Memphis area for several years, working as an on-air personality for Spanish-language radio stations and more recently running his own online news outlet, Memphis Noticias.

On Thursday, a prosecutor announced in local court that the state was dropping criminal charges against Duran related to the arrest at the protest.

Two men in plainclothes, possibly Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, had watched from the back of Judge Bill Anderson's courtroom during the appearance at the criminal justice center at 201 Poplar.

"Unfortunately, ICE was waiting for him in the courtroom," advocacy group Latino Memphis tweeted Thursday afternoon. "He is currently with ICE."

This guy was ordered out of the country back in 2007; yet, he felt in no danger of being deported, so much so, that he became an advocate and publicly flaunted his illegality. Yeah, it’s hard living in the shadows when you’re a celebrity.



China Plots to Steal D.C. Holiday Ham

Americans are fortunate that the dollar is the world’s reserve currency. This morning, I marveled at how much groceries I bought for $35.00. Hell, a 12 ounce store brand container of instant coffee at Walmart cost little over $3.00; that equates to 180 cups. I thought I was robbing the place. Contrast that to the socialist paradise of Venezuela where powdered milk and toilet paper is considered a luxury item. Libtards have no idea how lucky they are to live in a capitalist country.

However, we’re not immune to the laws of economics. We have a village filled with idiots who believe trillion dollar deficits and unfunded liabilities are inconsequential. These modern day robber barons have a monopoly on the U.S. treasury where the printing presses spew out dollars as though it were a ticker tape parade. It’s a non-stop Christmas party in Washington D.C.

Eventually, this party is coming to a halt because a slanty-eyed Grinch is eyeballing our holiday ham. China, and other totalitarian regimes, know our Achilles heel. One of the reasons the dollar is the world’s reserve currency is because the price of oil is pegged to this commodity. If our enemies are able to supply an alternative, Americans would be financially crippled. Here is an excerpt from SHTPplan.com:

The greenback will get weaker, as soon as other nations have a real credible alternative to it, Ann Lee, Adjunct Professor of Economics and Finance at New York University and author of the book “What the US Can Learn From China,” told RT. Lee also says this is a “game changer” for the US. “It is more of a game changer for the US. As soon as other nations have a real credible alternative to the US dollar, they can dump dollars and switch to the yuan which can spark a dollar crisis. If that happens, not only will there be inflation from the tariffs, but also from the flood of dollars,” said Lee.

Peter Schiff, a financial guru who predicted the 2008 recession, also said that the dollar will collapse. And when it does, things won’t look optimistic for those who use dollars. Although Schiff holds firm that the consequence of the Federal Reserve manipulating the economy will be the crash of the dollar, the Chinese petro-yuan could also play a role.

When that happens, the party’s over.

China Steals Charlotte Pipe and Foundry's Identity

Identity theft is a nightmare. Victims can expect a long and difficult process in restoring their reputation and finances. The good news is we have laws and once the perpetrators are caught, they’ll face long prison sentences. But what if you’re an American company and the offender is a totalitarian country that acts like the mafia? What do you do then?

Charlotte Pipe and Foundry was established in North Carolina in 1901. A company that’s been around that long has established a good name by producing a superior product. Unfortunately for them, they’ve had their identity stolen by a Chinese company that produces cheap, crappy products and dumps it on the world’s market. Here is an excerpt from an op-ed written by Frank Dowd, the chairman of Charlotte Pipe and Foundry:

Free trade is supposed to be a two-way street. But if you want access to China’s market of 1.4 billion people, you will have to transfer your company’s intellectual property to the Chinese government as a cost of doing business there – that is, if they are not outright stealing your intellectual property.

We’ve experienced that firsthand as well. Last year we discovered that a Chinese company, Yitai, had stolen our company’s logo and registered it in China. They put a Charlotte Pipe and Foundry sign on their building and the general manager is passing around Charlotte Pipe and Foundry business cards. Yitai manufactures competing products and uses the stolen Charlotte brand to sell across Asia. Do you consider this fair trade?

During the later stages of the Cold War, free and open access to U.S. markets was used as a foreign policy tool to prop up our allies and promote democracy. America led the liberalization of global free trade throughout the 1980s and 90s, culminating in the passage of NAFTA and the creation of the World Trade Organization, lifting billions of people out of poverty.

This approach was premised on the assumption that the extension of free markets would lead to global convergence to Western-style capitalism. The U.S. supported China’s entry into the WTO in 2001 hoping China would eventually embrace a market-oriented trade regime. But as Mr. Trump said recently, “it is now clear that the WTO rules are not sufficient to constrain China’s market-distorting behavior.”

I listened to a panel on NPR discussing this very subject and was astonished at how brazen the Chinese can be. Apparently, they’ll attend trade shows and set up a booth right next to Charlotte Pipe and Foundry flouting their illegality. It was shocking.

The problem with gangster regimes like China is they have no respect for property rights which is essential for success. Their success is dependent on forcing companies to divulge trade secrets, or they’ll just outright steal it. This is a dilemma the Trump administration has to deal with and I don’t believe raising tariffs are going to do the trick. As of now, China has issued retaliatory measures that could possibly trigger a trade war.

The best course of action is to challenge China’s status in the World Trade Organization. As a member, China is required to follow the bylaws of the WTO which mandates protection of trademarks and intellectual property rights. If a member is a habitual offender, they must either be sanctioned or removed. A threat of this magnitude could keep an outlaw regime like China in check. Even mafia bosses crave a semblance of respectability.
