By Any Other Name

For a very long time, I have been referring to liberals as "illiberals" or "illiberal control freaks". More recently, I have been referring to liberal/progressives as "illiberal/oppressives". Here's a great article about how these illiberal/oppressives have hijacked the language to suggest that they are the exact opposite of what they really are.

Those who would destroy a society, destroy first its language. As Orwell observed, when the terms of discourse are corrupted, the corruption spreads into every domain the language is used to debate. So deep has this language rot penetrated, that it is difficult to write an essay like this without succumbing to it—that is the intent of those who spread the contagion. The present-day culprits identify themselves as “progressives” or “liberals”. Take a step back and ponder how manipulative this is: if you're a “progressive”, then you must obviously be on the side of progress, even though the outcome of the policies you advocate will ultimately roll back all of the advances in individual liberty and prosperity made since the Enlightenment; if you're a “liberal”, surely you must advocate liberty, notwithstanding that the consequences of your prescriptions will be descent of society into serfdom for the masses, deemed property of the state, ruled by an unelected, unaccountable √©lite.

These so-called “progressives” or “liberals” are not advocates of progress or liberty: they are enemies of them, and the sooner champions of liberty acknowledge what they are, the better our slim chances for defeating them will be. Libertarians and conservatives are inclined toward civil discourse and respect for the rule of law. They must come to terms with the fact that their enemies—not opponents—are implacable, bent on winning whatever the cost may be, willing to use any means whatsoever to prevail and, once triumphant, to deprive their opposition of the means to reverse or even impede the implementation of their agenda.

The article also suggests things we can do about this. (Continue reading...)

The Party of the Rich

If Republicans are the "party of the rich", if capitalists are composed of the wealthiest people on the planet, then how is it that billions of dollars from George Soros, and high-roller "progressive" foundations are constantly pouring money into unseating Republican candidates such as Michele Bachmann and Allen West?

Some of the best known ultra-rich people include George Soros and Bill Gates, both of whom are actively funding left wing causes. The Koch brothers pale by comparison. Since there appears to be no way to limit money in politics (political weasels, left and right, will always find ways around it), we preservatives need more Koch brothers just to break even.

This Country is ah, one of ah, Our Greatest Allies

I finally realized why President Obama can't put two coherent words together when he's off his teleprompter. When you've smoked as damn much pot as he has, well...

That's some really good rap from the leader of the choom gang, man! It reminds me of Cheech and Chong.

One World Government

A couple of posts back, I said that President Obama was scheming against the interests of America and its citizens. To prove that I am not some tinfoil hat fringe lunatic (well, maybe I am, but not because of this), I provide this link to a document by the Obama regime (our government until we change it in November, God willing).

While you're waiting for the 2.24 megabyte PDF to download, I'll describe the highlights. The document is entitled, "Global Governance 2025: at a Critical Juncture". If the title doesn't give you chills, maybe the first paragraph of the Preface will:

The United States’ National Intelligence Council (NIC) and the European Union’s Institute for Security Studies (EUISS) have joined forces to produce this assessment of the long-term prospects for global governance frameworks. This exercise builds on the experience of the two institutions in identifying the key trends shaping the future international system. Since the mid 1990s, the NIC has produced four editions of its landmark Global Trends report. The most recent one, Global Trends 2025: A Transformed World, published in late 2008, noted that momentous change was ahead, with the gap between increasing disorder and weakening governance structures widening. The EUISS produced the first EU-level report on the factors affecting the evolution of the international system in 2006, The New Global Puzzle. What World for the EU in 2025? The report stressed that a multipolar system is emerging and that matching the new distribution of power with new rules and institutions will be critical to preserving international peace and stability.

The idea that peace and stability comes from global governance is as laughable as it is spooky. I suppose a centralized government that was sufficiently domineering could suppress human nature. Humans have always had their differences. That is why we have separate religions, separate states, separate political systems and so on. It is human nature to compete, to invent, to form groups that include some and exclude others. Our founders understood that any government that attempts to govern against natural law (including human nature) is bound to fail, as we saw with the old USSR, to name just one.

Then there's this, from Chapter 1:

Climate change has trespassed the boundaries of environmental politics to become the subject of the global political, economic, and security debate and a new focus of multilateral cooperation cutting across these and other domains.

...spoken with all the usual 'progressive' assertiveness that Anthropogenic Global Warming is a foregone conclusion. Despite the fact that the AGW hypothesis is not predictably reproducible (i.e., it's untestable, and therefore unscientific by definition) -- and despite mounting evidence to the contrary, it is essential to the 'progressive' agenda.

The biggest problem that I see with global government is a lack of diversity. Today, if I want to be oppressed, there are plenty of countries where I can go to be oppressed, especially in the Middle East. If I want to be free, there are plenty... no wait... The United States... no wait... not anymore -- although the US is still one of the freest nations in the world, which explains why we have an illegal immigration problem (as opposed to an illegal emigration problem, like the old Soviet Union and Cuba).

The last time I checked, the United States was a sovereign nation as defined by The Constitution. I do not appreciate presumptuous 'progressives' taking liberties with my liberty, and nullifying our constitutional sovereignty without the consent of the governed. And I'll be damned if I'll give my consent.

Black Woman Addresses CPAC...

...or as a tolerant, non-racist 'progressive' posted on her facebook page, "Coon addresses KKK rally". Before her epiphany, Anita Moncrief was a self-described liberal, working for ACORN. Now she's an ACORN whistle-blower. This is well worth your time to watch.

Where is Andrew Breitbart when you need him? Oh that's right, he died. How convenient.

Operation Hot Mic

"After my election I have more flexibility." ~ Barack Hussein Obama

Caught unawares on a hot microphone, President Obama was recorded talking to a Russian operative about how he would have less responsibility to We the People (i.e., Americans) after his re-election. Considering the un-checked powers he has usurped during his first term, do you think it would be wise to re-elect him? I think we should deny him that.

This isn't the first time a president has been embarrassed by a live microphone (Reagan, Bush), but it is the first time an American president has been recorded scheming so brazenly against American interest, and to a Russian diplomat no less.

We need to vote this despicable tool out of office at our earliest opportunity. He stands for the exact opposite of this:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. ~ Thomas Jefferson, The Declaration of Independence

In fact, he rejects it. And this:

When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - when you see that men get richer by graft than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you - when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - you may know that your society is doomed. ~ Ayn Rand

Someone told me that conservatives and evangelical Christians don't vote, and they don't vote in high percentages. According to several sources, 'progressives' make up less than 30% of the American population. (It used to be 25%, but I digress.) If that is true, then all we need to do to end tyranny in this country is show up on election day! Holy socks, Batman! This isn't Dancing With The Stars, or American Idol. Our liberty and prosperity -- and future generations' -- depends on us getting this right next time. Show up and vote!

National Suicide

Mark Levin is one of the best commentators on Constitutional principles in the world.

I am really sorry that KGMI pulled Mark Levin from their program lineup.

Thanks to Randy for sending me this.

Do As I Say, Not As I Do

The Quote of the Decade:

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that 'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

Americans deserve better, indeed! Let's make it so this November.
