The Subversion of America. Is it ‘Game Over’?

The slow burn.


For more years than I would like to count, America has been drifting to the left. I began to notice around 1988 when CNN started to substitute the term “homosexual” with the term “gay”. I recognized it for what it was then; an agenda driven initiative to retire a clinical term describing a human condition draped with negative connotations and replace it with a happy word in an effort to make the condition more mentally acceptable for the public. In other words, it was then and still is today an effort to make an abnormal state a normal one. It’s a form of subversion and it is still in operation today.

For a more recent example take a look at the opposition to California’s Proposition 8 which changed the state’s constitution to restrict the definition of marriage to opposite-sex couples and eliminated the right for same-sex couples to marry. It is a wise attempt to stop a small but determined sub-culture of homosexuals who want to undermine a core value of this country that a marriage is between a man and a woman which in an of itself is designed to solidify a healthy environment in which children can be properly raised under the influence of a normal environment. For those who want to take issue with “normalcy” please refer to Sociology 101.

US Supreme Court refuses to hear argument against Kagan

English: Justice Elena Kagan in the Justices' ...

In his year-end report, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote, “I have complete confidence in the capability of my colleagues to determine when recusal is warranted.  They are jurists of exceptional integrity and experience whose character and fitness have been examined through a rigorous appointment and confirmation process.”

Unfortunately, I suspect he is wrong.  I believe Justice Kagan is a plant.  She was placed on the court for the sole purpose of ruling on this case.  If I am correct, it would necessitate that she is not, as the Chief Justice wrote, “of exceptional integrity.”

I received this email today from Grassfire Nation and I’m posting it here.  It supplements and updates my essay on Elena Kagan from last November.

From the Desk of:
Steve Elliott, Grassfire Nation
On Monday, the Supreme Court refused to hear oral arguments on 
whether Justice Elena Kagan should recuse herself from the
ObamaCare lawsuit.

This was no surprise. The Supreme Court is the most isolated 
and powerful branch of government. Despite the overwhelming 
evidence indicating that Kagan should recuse herself, the
Court has refused to take any action.

Let’s review the facts…

The Judicial Crisis Network (JCN) has carefully documented 
Kagan’s work on behalf of ObamaCare while she served as 
Obama’s Solicitor General.

Union Thuggery

I was sent this video today.  It illustrates nicely why Unions have outlived their usefulness.  These people do exactly what their allies in the DNC accuse peaceful Tea party protesters of doing.  If this doesn’t bother you then you’ve lost your moral compass.

You might want to read the comments on the YouTube page as well.  Very interesting how the union respondent bragged that they run the government.  I’d like to disagree but Obama has encouraged and confirmed that it is true at least in Washington DC.

Wisconsin: Greed, Power, and Self-Destruction

“Governor Scott Walker is taking the tough, but necessary, steps to balance the books in Wisconsin and get the state’s fiscal house in order, and I applaud him for it,” McDonnell said. “I thank Scott for his leadership. It’s what we need to see more of in every state capitol, and in Washington DC”

Perhaps we can agree on a few things. The situation in Wisconsin’s state capitol is outrageous. The situation facing state budgets across the nation has become serious. And that Americans as a whole have their heads stuck in the sand and elected officials in particular have their heads stuck somewhere darker when it comes to dealing with public spending. The Federal debt is so huge the human mind cannot comprehend the sheer enormity of it. State fiscal situations are equally serious and in some cases, ie. California, more serious.

If a state becomes insolvent what happens? Oh, you say, the Federal government would come to the rescue. So how exactly would that work? They’d print more money to cover the added burden. They are already creating MB at an alarming rate.   But that isn’t what’s bugging me in this news story. Continue reading

A Stolen Democracy And The Need For Term Limits

John Murtha (D-PA), Enemy At Large

If there are any questions regarding the need for term limits, this will answer it.

Rangel: Idiot or Arrogant?

CNBC host, Larry Kudlow admits to being a Rangel fanboy even as he exposes the corruption that IS Rep. Charlie Rangel.

I’m almost hesitant to even write about Representative Charlie Rangel (D-NY) since he has informed me I am not smart enough to frame it right.  Or something like that.  On August  28th Rep. Rangel stood before a crowd of reporters, rather than answer questions about his massive tax evasions he responded in a typically liberal way, he hurled a personal insult.  Sorry but that is what liberals do when they cannot defend something, they make a personal attack.

I recognize that all of you have an obligation to ask questions knowing that there’s none of you smart enough to frame it in such a way that I’m going to respond,” Rangel hissed at reporters last Friday.  An American Idiot waited to see how the mainstream media would respond to being insulted.  Interestingly they must have all agreed as his words were hardly repeated and no panel discussion followed on CNN or the like.

Image with me for a moment… Charlie’s words flowing from the lips of, oh let’s say, Sarah Palin or any other Republican anywhere.  Now image how would the press might respond?  Would it be as muted as we saw last weekend?  Hardly.  But let’s get back to Rangel.

Oops, I forgot $7 million on my taxes BUT you’re too stupid to understand why

Apparently needing to revise six years worth of tax forms because you “forgot” to report more than SEVEN million dollars in income and assets is not stupid, yet reporters covering the story are too dumb to understand Rangel’s explanation.  Confused?  Me too.  Rangel apparently feels he is so far above everyone else that he would be stooping to acknowledge our questions.

Rangel is the head of the House Ways and Means Committee. Does anyone find this ironic besides me?  Rangel is the Chairman of the committee charged with writing legislation concerning taxes, bonded debt, national social security programs, and tariffs.  Yet Rangel either cheated on his taxes or was incredibly incompetent in filing them.

If we assume either of these motives, Rangel should resign or be forcibly removed from office.  Perhaps at 79 years of age he is no longer competent to hold the office.  Such an oversight, if it was one, certainly seems like evidence of diminished mental capacity.  However, if Rangel maintains he is competent then we must assume he intentionally cheated on his taxes.  Either way Rangel should be removed from office.  I agree with House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-OH) who wrote, “The American people have every right to demand that their leaders be held to the highest possible standards of ethical conduct in every situation, regardless of a member’s political party, personality, or past record.”

Rangel is an important player in Pelosi's health care fight

Rangel is an important player in Pelosi's health care fight

Others writers have claimed Rangel would scream racism if anyone in a position of influence called for his resignation.  So far only Republicans have made their desires known and as far as I know Rangel hasn’t made such a charge – yet.  With a critical vote on HR3200 coming up Democrats need every vote they can hold on to.  Rangel is an important leader in the health care debate and obviously a “yes” vote.  If  any Democrats call for him to step down I will be shocked.  As of this writing, Speaker Pelosi stands firmly and silently in support of Rangel. No surprise.

Feathering his nest

Fellow NY Rep. McMahon sees nothing wrong with keeping contributions from Rangel

When deciding whether Rangel is an idiot or just arrogant we should consider that Rep. Rangel has made significant political contributions to three of the five Democratic members of the ethics committee investigating him.  In fact, Rangel has donated to 119 Democrats in all, giving more money to fellow Democrats in 2008 than any other Congressman. One representative, Michael McMahon (D-NY) refuses to return the money Rangel gave his campaign.  “These funds are entirely unrelated to any investigation of Congressman Rangel,” according to McMahon’s Communications Director.  However, ethics questions concerning Rangel were already being raise during the 2008 campaign.  At the very least there is the appearance that Rangel was seeding the House with goodwill in anticipation of the coming ethics probe.

Again I must point out that if a Republican in his position had taken such actions those contributions themselves would become the centerpieces in a firestorm of angry calls for resignation.  The term “campaign contribution” would never be used, rather the term would be “bribe.”  I’m not sure what was going on with those donations, but Rangel appears to have been feathering his bed.

Now he finds himself in the center of controversy but is he worried?  Probably not.  He knows he has 118 (one representative has returned Rangel’s contribution) friends in the House and the Speaker can’t afford to lose him.  Rest assured she will be twisting arms – no breaking knee caps – to ensure the panel finds no evidence of wrong-doing.  Only widespread public outrage could change that.  At least that’s how someone who only hopes to be as smart as Charlie Rangel someday sees it.

Say what? Babbling Blago.

Illinois Governor Rod R. Blagojevich - The art of misdirection

Illinois Governor Rod R. Blagojevich - The art of misdirection

This morning the Illinois House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted to impeach the corrupt Governor.  The vote was 114 to 1 with three abstentions.  A few hours later the governor held a press conference to respond.  If you are like me the TV was on and you were watching.  I held out hope that Blagojevich might hang his head and resign.  But as we all know, Blagojevich is never one to do the right thing.  Instead he prefers to waste taxpayer money fighting and giving press conferences that say nothing and serve no purpose.

So just what was the Illinois Governor saying during that seemingly never-ending press conference?  He started with the same tired act of his, playing the victim of a conspiracy.  They are out to get me.  They’ve been trying to get me since I was re-elected.  Blah blah blah. Then he decided what we all needed was a good song and dance.

He then proceeded to make a very rough segue into a campaign speech.  No, actually it was more like a campaign debate, only there was no one to debate and he provided props.  We’ve all watched presidential debates and we’ve heard the references to Joe-the-Plumber, Katie’s restaurant, and various other examples candidates use to prove a point.  Blagojevich, apparently thought he needed to campaign rather than prove his innocence.  He seems to have decided it is pointless to try to prove innocence, clearly that is not possible.  Instead, he spent his time  pointing out his virtues and the needs he supposedly advocates. Surely this should boost his image and get people to stop thinking about those nasty little corruption charges.

After all, the American public is comprised primarily of idiots who can be easily fooled through slight-of-hand and misdirection, right?  Claim to be the victim and claim that if you are removed from office people will die and naturally the people will rally to your defence.  By this time tomorrow the Illinois Senate will be flooded with angry calls from citizens demanding they leave poor Blago alone.  You don’t think so?  Neither do I.

Blagojevich is a idiot.  He made a complete fool of himself today.  His press conference ranks at the top of my list of the worst I have ever seen.  His performance was bad because he missed the point, he babbled on and on about things that had no relationship to the impeachment, and he did not do the right thing and resign.  At one point I was so incredulous I exclaimed that perhaps he is setting up his criminal defence of insanity.  He clearly seemed insane to me.  What you you think?
