Is Cloward Piven Strategy Finally Reaching its Sorry Conclusion and Should Conservatives Go Along and “Let it Burn”


I haven’t been thinking such cataclysmic thoughts since the outrageous Stimulus of 3/2009, which was the impetus for the tea party movement.
TodayAce, in a typically insightful post, vented about how throughout the 2012 election campaign, the media class let Obama slide on  entitlement spending. Everyone knows we’re on an unsustainable path, but they didn’t challenge the President who had no answers, and they allowed him to demagogue the two guys that did.
It has long been a mark of the Smart Set to acknowledge the distressing problem of financing our entitlement systems. For decades, a pundit on the pages of the Washington Post could make his rent by writing the same basic column once a month — “While these nincompooops in DC argue about this or that temporary trivia, everyone ignores the real problem, which is that, due to the Baby Boom followed by a very long Baby Bust, there are too few workers to support the ever-growing cohort of retired folks, and this problem will get worse and worse every year until we either do something about it or we don’t, in which case the system collapses catastrophically.”
Even liberals who didn’t understand math (which is most of them) knew that the Smarter Folks who did understand math were quite certain this was a problem, and so echoed their concerns.
But it was politics before country for the MSM, and now that they’ve reached their goal of getting their Precious elected, they’re wringing their hands again about entitlements.
Now comes the Washington Post, after fighting assiduously to re-elect the team pandering on entitlements, slandering and lying — I’m sorry, I mean “Fact-Checking” — the team which told the truth about entitlements, to impotently object that “entitlements must be on the table.”
They have no credibility on the issue. If this was such an important issue– which they remember to say again after the election — why did they work so hard to elect the Party determined to pander and offer nothing but Mathematical Fantasies? When it comes to pandering, their mouths say “No” but their eyes say “Yes yes yes,” and the Democrats know it.
Continuing on to his next post, Ace muses:
I’d sure like to see this “balanced approach” Obama talks about so much, on paper. An equal amount of tax hikes and spending cuts would in fact be a far more right wing proposal than he’s actually put forward.
His actual plan is about as balanced as, say, France’s Socialists are implementing.
The French economy has been stuck at zero percent growth for months, while unemployment has climbed to above 10 percent — and all signs point to an oncoming recession.
Sounds like a plan. Let’s do that.
I’m finding the gravitational pull of the Let It Burn caucus growing increasingly strong and increasingly irresistible.
Are we now living through the final stages of a decades long strategy to wreck the US economy?

Jeffrey Goldberg is a coward and apologist for Hamas

The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg - the same one who attacked Pamela Geller and said not to support Israel at the time of the brush fire because the country "is rich", as though money is more important than human lives, has made a fool of himself again by opposing a ground invasion of Gaza:
The air campaign against Hamas rocket sites is understandable and defensible. A ground invasion will lead to misery and woe; to a total rupture with Egypt; to a further loss of legitimacy, and thus, deterrent capability -- and, at the end of the day, does anyone actually believe that Israel would be able to fully neutralize the Hamas/Islamic Jihad threat? These groups might need time to rebuild, but they would be rebuilt. And then what? Another ground invasion?
It's not hard to figure he views palestinians as something they're not - a race and a country - and doesn't want Israel to "occupy" Gaza anymore. And Israel's relations with Egypt were on the rocks  2 decades ago, so there's no point in doing trying to lead any with them now. Goldberg is only further cementing his reputation as an apologist for Islamofascism, and he can say whatever he likes but it's clear he cares less about Israeli human life than he does about warmongering.

Ludicrous comic about palestinian rock thrower and Jewish baseball scout

This sounds very insulting to the cortex: the leftist British-run Bleeding Cool tells of this new comic from Paradigm Studios called "The Rockthrower", and what's it about?
THE ROCKTHROWER is a dramatic comedy on the trials and tribulations of David Willis, a down and out baseball scout on his last leg. When Willis sees footage of a Palestinian/Israeli conflict, he is transfixed on a new potential pitching discovery — a Palestinian teen throwing rocks with a speed and accuracy that defies even the best pitchers on Major League Baseball teams. On a wild hunch, a wing and a prayer, Dave travels into unforeseen territory to make this kid a star. But will his own heritage of being Jewish and his dark past as a disgraced baseball player put this endeavor towards a path of failure before its even had a chance to succeed?
If the boy was throwing rocks at Israelis - it makes no difference whether it was military or civilian - then he was basically acting as jihadist and with mindsets like that he would not be deserving of a career as a baseball player. The way they speak of the baseball scout himself sounds like it simultaneously makes him out to look dreadful, which only adds insult to injury. And what makes a "palestinian" a better character to recruit to baseball than one who's written as coming from a Coptic or an Armenian background? Again, people of those backgrounds get no offer of recognition. A shame Will Eisner is no longer around, because maybe he could've tried out a project like that.

This new monstrosity bears all the signs of a moral equation and the subject is no laughing matter, making it all the more tasteless.

Here's a bit:

He said he has also discovered some EPA employees setting up private gmail accounts using their first and last names and the word EPA as a standard formula. 
“They’ve been moving government over to private email,” Mr. Horner told The Washington Times. “In the book, I reveal private servers the White House had universities and pressure groups set up so they can conduct discussions.”

“A central task for progressives is to expose the agenda of billionaires and plutocrats”


From a somewhat ‘expectant of Obama’ article entitled “

Obama Won. Now It’s Time to Change the System”

in THE NATION, this week.
Well, ummmh … you know I was past the re-election of this guy. Past the wondering what it was the 51.5% saw in him. Past the wondering where the economic destruction would end. Past wondering what national security disaster awaited. Past wondering what Obamacare item in that 2700 pages would trip wire another supreme court brouhaha (turns out it’s the item abrogating the pay for fee contract between private insurance companies and doctors ..anyone betting?). I was past wondering about the cliff and if Obama was serious about compromise, or Boehner for that fact. I was past the joke of Obama thinking he had been elected as anything but NOT BUSH, that he had been elected to fundamentally transform America, and re-elected on a mandate of that and raising taxes-rather than, as the polls indicated because he felt better to the public, that he could empathize with them better than some successful guy who started his own business and created probably hundreds of thousands of middle class jobs out of his own actions, even he had been flip flopping in a public manner along the way. I was past wondering if the America Obama professes to love is some other place than defined in the Founding Documents, and modified by Amendments. Past wondering if he really was striving for his legacy as a President, his personal achievement log, or his MOVEMENT. 
And then, you see, you read something… and you know. You know there is MORE DANGER

IT IS THE MOVEMENT

But however skilled Obama is as a politician—and despite the many principled progressives in Congress—we cannot expect to enact more than modest reforms until we tame the power of the corporate plutocrats. Ultimately, we need to change the system that ensnares even the most progressive politicians in its web.
Specifically, we need three kinds of structural “mobilizing” reforms that will dramatically level the political playing field, weakening the power of the corporate plutocracy and strengthening the voices of ordinary Americans:
§ Campaign finance reform. America must eliminate the corrosive impact of money in politics. But until a more liberal Supreme Court reverses the conservative rulings that consider corporate money a form of “free speech” (such as Buckley v. Valeo and Citizens United), we need stepping-stone reforms that start to address this power imbalance.
Pending legislation called the Fair Elections Now Act would provide public funding to candidates who get support from large numbers of small donors instead of wealthy contributors, bundlers and lobbyists. The act’s lead sponsors in the House are Representatives John Larson, Walter Jones and Chellie Pingree; in the Senate it’s majority whip Dick Durbin.   
A number of states have passed “clean election” laws to reduce the influence of private cash in favor of public funding, but courts have struck several of these down. In New York State, reform activists and Governor Andrew Cuomo are backing a public financing bill modeled after a successful law in New York City.
§ Voting reform. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Congressman John Lewis are sponsoring the Voter Empowerment Act, which would make voter registration easier, thus increasing voter turnout. It would make election day registration the law of the land. According to Demos, a nonpartisan think tank, election day registration currently exists in nine states, and voter turnout in these states has historically exceeded the turnout elsewhere by 10 to 12 percentage points. We should also turn election day into a national holiday and require accessible early voting in every state. No one should have to wait several hours to cast his or her vote.
§ Labor law reform. Throughout the last century, unions have been the most powerful vehicles for challenging corporate power. Organized labor was the primary force responsible for giving us Social Security, the minimum wage, the eight-hour day, unemployment insurance, workplace safety laws and funding for public education.  
Today, however, only 11.8 percent of the workforce is unionized, even though more than half of all nonmanagement employees tell pollsters that they would like a union in their workplace. Many employers violate the law by firing or demoting workers who show support for union organizing drives. These employers get away with it because the penalties are too trivial to deter them. We need to update the labor laws and give workers a voice by setting real, deterrent-size penalties and enforceable remedies against employers who violate their workers’ right to organize. 
* * *

We can’t simply wait for these game-changing structural reforms to happen. In Obama’s second term, activists need to be bolder and more audacious, like the suffragists, strikers and civil rights crusaders before them. A central task for progressives is to expose the agenda of billionaires and plutocrats. We must name names and call out the business moguls whose overlapping memberships on corporate boards, lobbying groups and conservative think tanks make them a ruling class over the rest of us. Only visible, consistent action will create the political space—and pressure—for President Obama and Congress to act on behalf of the majority of Americans. 

This strategy worked in Obama’s first term. His healthcare proposal seemed likely to fail until activists began organizing protests at insurance companies and at the homes of industry CEOs, drawing attention to their outrageous profits and compensation, and giving voice to the victims of the industry’s abusive practices. The protests catalyzed media coverage, strengthened Obama’s resolve and pushed reluctant Democrats to vote for reform. 

Activists must use protests, civil disobedience, boycotts, lawsuits and other strategies to pressure Congress to act on such urgent issues as foreclosures, underwater home prices, student debt, taxes, the fiscal crisis of states and cities, and raising the minimum wage. Each of these issues has broad support, workable policy solutions and burgeoning movements behind them.

Every time I think I am out of it, they, well…. you know the rest.
Are we getting it?
You will not want to live here.
They will say good riddance.
I would like to stop and wonder if I should just game this system and forget it. But they will never leave people like me alone. Or, if you are reading this, you. What you think, how you think that, how you want to live are a mortal offense to them.
They will never leave you alone. You cannot LIVE a low enough profile.
Sooner or later you will pop up, visible by something you say, or write, or do, or don’t do.
You will not want to live here.
And it will be in your lifetime.

So you’re not making $250k, right? So what if the rich guy’s have to pay? OH YEAH? Selling your home?


OH.
Yes that’s right under Obamacare, buried in that 2700 pages.
Unerarned income.
Over 200k for individuals and 250k for families, and UNPROTECTED if the tax rate law as Obama wants it goes through …
3.8% dudes and dudettes.
Once upon a time if you sold the MAIN ASSET American families have earned it was EXEMPT COMPLETELY. No more. Your main asset now is collateral for Bank of America’s, Lehman’s, GM’s, Chrysler’s, and the voted in members of the US Govt’s and everyone else’s IRRESPONSIBLE financial behavior now that the bills are coming due.
It’s over people.
Now you know why we have only 185 (left, after this week’s crash) F-22’s replacing the 751 F-15’s we used to have for air superiority.
Now you know why our Navy is going to be pre-WW1 in size as China expands THEIRS past area denial to sea control and power projection.
Now you know why Obama robbed Medicare of nearly a trillion to pay for his pet project (which remains unaffordable anyway, since exchanges are going in the toilet).
Now you know why he wants to incite class warfare to cover this degree of extremity.
The US govt now needs the profit from sale of the asset you put your life into.
It’s OVER HERE, people.
It stands to reason that where there’s sacrifice, there’s someone collecting sacrificial offerings. Where there’s service, there’s someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice, speaks of slaves and masters. And intends to be the master.

President of "America", Bronco Bama, Calls Egypt’s President Morsi To Thank Him For Helping “Calm” Situation In Gaza - Morsi Threatened Israel Earlier In The Day


I've been noting that the President of "America", Bronco Bama, had yet to speak out on the situation in Israel.

Well now he has.

Did he call Netanyahu and voice his support?

No.

Did he give a press conference, and explain that Israel has a right to defend herself?

No.

He called Muslim Brotherhood member/Egyptian President, Mohammed Morsi, and expressed his approval of Morsi's incitement ... er, uh, whatever.

Not only did Morsi threaten Israel but they crowd he was speaking to started chanting about killing Jews . . . and Obama thanks him for it.

(Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama called Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi on Friday to commend the country’s efforts to help calm the situation in Israel and Gaza and underscored his hope of restoring stability there, the White House said. 
Egypt’s prime minister, Hisham Kandil, has said Cairo is prepared to mediate a truce in the growing violence between Israel and Hamas, the Islamist group that runs the Gaza Strip. Egypt’s government is allied with Hamas, but is also party to a 1979 peace treaty with Israel.


Earlier in the day:

Egypt will continue to support Gaza against continued attacks rom Israeli armed forces, President Mohamed Morsy reiterated on Friday. 
“The price will be high if the aggression continues,” Morsy said after he performed Friday prayers in Fatma Al-Sharbatly Mosque in Cairo’s Fifth Settlement. 
“Egypt is different from yesterday,” he added, referring to his predecessor ousted President Hosni Mubarak’s soft stance on the Israel-Palestine conflict. 
“We assure them [Israel] that the price will be high for continued aggression, and [we tell them] you have to bear the responsibility,” Morsy continued. 
During Morsy’s speech, worshipers chanted: “Khaybar, Khaybar, Oh Jews, the army of Mohamed will return,” in reference to a historical battle fought between Muslims and Jews in Saudi Arabia. 
“I say to those on behalf of all the Egyptian people that Egypt today is different from yesterday, and Arabs today are different from yesterday. I say confidently that Egypt will not leave Gaza alone,” Morsy said.

Good Ol' Quotes

"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." 

-- John Adams

"The mobs of the great cities add just so much to the support of pure government as sores do to the strength of the human body. It is the manners and spirit of a people which preserve a republic in vigor. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution." 

-- Thomas Jefferson

Thumbsucking


def: The art of thumbsuckingCommentary that speaks gravely about the state of humanity, the future of the world, the nature of power, the condition of international relations and the fusion of economics and politics.
I’ve been doing some thumbsucking on the geo-political future of our world and here’s what I’ve come up with.
By idiocy or design, the West led by Obama, has encouraged and sped up the march of Islamism leading to a Caliphate in the 1.2 billion Muslim world and the flexing of the political and military muscle that follows. This leads to a very frightening geo-political scenario sometime 10 or 20 years out.
The Caliphate, which I call the theater of the coming Great East-West War, will stretch from North Africa through the Middle East through ‘chaosistan’ to South-East Asia and Indonesia.  Europe, through the weakness of it Leftist-Socialist policies of appeasing its Mulsim population, will eventually fall into civil war between the Islamo-fascists and the Neo-fascists. The EU, after years of Islamic infiltration and staggering from internal Leftist corruption, will easily collapse. Very similar to France in the 1930s.
Though they had the largest army in Europe – much bigger than Germany – when the war came, the French took a passive defensive strategy behind their impregnable Maginot Line instead of attacking Germany directly.  Years of internal strife between communists, democrats and fascists had sapped the political and military moral of the nation.
Russia, seeing the rise of the Caliphate, will pull a 1939 political coup forming a political alliance with the Caliphate in return for peaceful Muslim borders with ‘chaosistan’ and an agreement to retake the former Soviet Block countries east of Poland and reestablish most of the former Soviet Union when Islam wins the civil war in Western Europe.
To carry the pre-World War Two scenario further, South America will be 21st century equivalent of the Spanish Civil War of the mid-1930s.  On one side will be the Marxist/Socialist led by people like Chavez and countries that follow his lead, and on the other, Neo-fascists governments like Argentina – all of which are vying for control of large swaths of South America.  Russia will assist the Marxist/Socialists with aide and Iran will take full advantage of the civil wars placing military hardware and nukes in those states – ala, 1962 Cuba.
NATO will have to side with the Neo-fascists in South America as they do in the European civil war but will send little aide now that the progressive Left have been in power for some years. The 1930s scenario playing out again when England and France, tired of prior wars as the US is now, could not put up much a political resistance.
So where does this leave the rest of the geo-political world?
China will of course resist any attempts of the Islamists causing strife in China.  In fact, they will form a political and military alliance with the United States and Canada to confront the Islamic Caliphate in the war.
What about India and Australia?
India will be surrounded on both sides by the Caliphate. Though they have a large Muslim population in their country, I believe they will not allow it to create enough internal strife to prevent India from defending its borders.   They’ve had experience with Muslim trouble-making before. In addition, India will join China and the U.S. in the alliance.
Now, Australia.  They may go the route of Great Britain and Europe. The signs point to having enough Muslim infiltration to create political strife in this scenario.  Will they suppress the Muslim insurrection and join the alliance or have civil war? Hard to tell.
That leaves Israel and the U.S.
There are passive Leftists in the Likud. They will oust Netanyahu. It’s looking that way now since Obama was re-elected.
How any Israeli can be a Leftist with the country being told by its enemies’ that they will wipe Israel out is beyond me. But they exist.  But seeing France and England’s response to Nazi aggression before 1939 was unbelievable too. They just stuck their heads in the sand and hoped fascism would go away. So too the Left in Israel. They may do nothing before it’s too late. Then either Israel disappears or the IDF executes the Samson Option.  The Samson Option is Israel's alleged deterrence strategy of massive retaliation with nuclear weapons as a "last resort" against nations whose military attacks threaten its existence, and possibly against other targets as well like Median, Mecca, Tehran, etc. I don’t want to think about what a geo-political mess that will cause.  But it would stiffen the Caliphate’s resolve to attack the West.
Finally, the U.S.
After years of Leftist rule, the U.S., like France, is torn by internal strife, weakened military and a bankrupt nation unable to fight a sustainable conventional war. That leaves only one option.
Nukes. And that option is the one preferred by the Caliphate. But what about the other nukes in Western Europe, Russia, and China – and Iran and Pakistan?
As I said, Russia will stay out of the Great East-West War. They will only benefit.  The U.S. can’t allow the nukes of Great Brittan and France to fall into the hands of the Caliphate. Though we will be unable or unwilling to interfere in the civil war in Europe, we will send in strike teams or ballistic missiles to neutralize the nukes in those countries. That leaves the U.S. and China with whatever nukes they have to counter the Caliphate’s.
The U.S. will also have to deal with nukes supplied by Iran and Pakistan and even North Korea in South America further diluting our military resources. Will there be a stand off with most of the world Islamic and the remaining non-Islamic? Another Cold War? Or will the Caliphate press the button and usher in their paradise on earth?

Senate Passes Unanimous Resolution of Supprt for Israel

From the Hill:

The Senate passed a resolution by unanimous consent Thursday night supporting Israel’s strikes on Gaza earlier this week. 
S.Res.599 expresses “vigorous support and unwavering commitment to the welfare, security, and survival of the State of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state with secure borders, and recognizing and strongly supporting its right to act in self-defense to protect its citizens against acts of terrorism.” 
The strikes by Israel on Gaza have set off protests in Egypt, as well as warnings of escalating violence.
Of course, we have yet to hear from Bronco Bama, the President of "America".

New Hawaii 5-0's producers showed the courage to focus on Islamic terrorism

I've seen a lot of the older, more classic Hawaii 5-0, which lasted 12 years (and after it ended, CBS sold some of the filming equipment to Universal so they could use it to shoot Magnum PI), and it looks like the new take on this famous police series set on the island state is proving itself worthy by producing a story where the stars combat Islamofascism. I'm very impressed at their courage to tackle a challenging issue. In that case, here's to hoping this new series will run at least another 12 years to match the older one!

"America": The Unions Win!!! Protect The Working Man - Hostess Goes Out Of Business, Laying Off 18,500 Workers






This is a cause for celebration in Bronco Bama's "America".

The Working Man's cause has been championed and the Unions have won.

From Fox:
IRVING, Texas - Say goodbye to your Twinkies.  
 North Texas-based Hostess Brands, Inc. has decided to go out of business and liquidate its assets after failing to win back striking workers. The company posted a statement on a website set up specifically for people following the strike.  
 "We deeply regret the necessity of today's decision, but we do not have the financial resources to weather an extended nationwide strike," said Gregory F. Rayburn, chief executive officer.  
"Hostess Brands will move promptly to lay off most of its 18,500-member workforce and focus on selling its assets to the highest bidders."
You see how that works.

Meanwhile, the Unions, who I may remind, do what they do in the interests of the Working Man, are starting in on the nation's largest employer (other than Bronco Bama) Wal-Mart:


With any luck, now, the Unions can force Wal-Mart out of business too.

NICO (WHO LIVES IN ARGENTINA) LEFT A VERY IMPORTANT COMMENT. I THINK IT IS LIKELY WE WILL SEE THIS HAPPEN WITHIN THE NEXT YEAR:

Starting to sound a lot like Argentina. Here though the government can force you to keep your company running since shutting it down could land you in prison. 

People here say the government doesn't understand how business works. I am sure they do. But they also understand how to REDISTRIBUTE wealth. Unions are the best way to do that. Unions have the power to bankrupt a company (and they do), but here the government has the power to force the company to remain open to every last dime that the evil rich guy had gets distributed!

Coulter: Democrat’s Decision to Turn US into Third World Nation Is Working Out As Planned


Ann Coulter nails it.
The US has seen millions of uneducated dependent immigrants flood into the country the past 40 years. This was not an accident. Democrats planned this. They knew this would kill the nation’s future. They knew it would kill prosperity. But it would keep them in power. And that has always been the goal for Democrats.
The US geopolitical system may soon resemble the nightmare situation in Venezuelawhere a Marxist thug like Chavez can win election after election by providing morsels to the poor dependent majority.
Liberals brag about having won the hearts and minds of America, as if, through logic and argument, they’ve persuaded people to accept their bankrupt European socialist ideas.
Democrats haven’t changed anyone’s mind. They changed the people.
More white people voted for Mitt Romney this year than voted for Ronald Reagan in 1980. Barack Obama lost white voters by 20 points — the widest margin since 1984.
But in 1980, whites were 88 percent of the electorate. In 2012, they were 72 percent of the electorate. Not only that, but the non-white electorate is far more Democratic than it was in 1980.
If the same country that voted in 1980 had voted in 2012, Romney would have won a bigger landslide than Reagan did.
Most Americans don’t realize that, decades ago, the Democrats instituted a long-term plan to gradually turn the United States into a Third World nation. The country would become poorer and less free, but Democrats would have an unbeatable majority!
Under Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 immigration act, our immigration policy changed from one that replicated the existing ethnic population to one that strictly favored unskilled immigrants from the Third World.
