Look away; Dixie-Land!

aconfederate.04So the ‘Stars and Bars’ fly no more next to the South Carolina Statehouse, but I do wonder if it will be so easy to remove those same ‘Stars and Bars’ from the whole history of the South?

 

 

 

(Old) Mt. Holly Springs C.S. Headstone

(Old) Mt. Holly Springs C.S. Headstone

It might be fairly easy to rip up a memorial headstone such as the one pictured and pronounce that one more ‘memory’ has gone down the road towards ‘equality’ but not so easy for others, especially if, like so many other cotton-topped politicians do, they speak and rant before studying the nature of the problem before them.

This clown says it should be sand-blasted away, and he wants all the Confederacy to be ‘disappeared’ as well. He might speak on behalf of the NAACP, but he don’t speak for the nation, even from a point of view of plain civil engineering. I mean, it took eight years to flame-cut the massive set-piece into the rock, and is the NAACP going to fund the removal of this massive piece of Southern History.

I kind of like the low-relief imagery, even on the truly gigantic scale produced on the face of the Stone Mountain; and I also admire the mindset behind the presence of those three leaders of the Confederacy, Jeff Davis, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, in that salute to an ideal which, although doomed to defeat, never faltered, never wavered, and, ultimately, helped forge the Union we know today.

 

it all depends who died!

By Mike Cunningham On July 12th, 2015 at 1:39 pm

Cast your minds back to August last year, and the news of the tragic / necessary (strike the superfluous word out as to your own political ideals) death of black Michael Brown at the hands and bullets of a (Missouri) Ferguson City white policeman. The first news emerged that Brown had been shot in the back, as a white supremacist (naturally) policeman had objected to Brown walking down the middle of the road. Later, the background evidence was seen to support a slightly different event timeline, first with this huge six foot-four, two-hundred-odd pound man being video’d stealing two boxes of cigars from a shop, and slamming the counter-clerk into a display stand when he objected. He then commenced swaggering down the road, and when the cop told him to move, he turned and attacked the cop whilst the cop was still in his car! As he had not grabbed the cop’s gun, Brown then first ran, then turned and went back to attack the policeman, at which the cop fired six rounds, hitting Brown twice in the head, and killing him immediately. I should not need to remind you of the rioting, the claims of ‘racism’, the ‘shocked family’ issuing statements denying that Michael Brown was anything else than a ‘gentle giant’ who had spoken with the Lord. ( that’s the Black Lord, by the way) We also remember the blatant attacks on the Ferguson police by none other that former Attorney-General Holder, who ‘felt the parents’ pain’ as he routinely denigrated honest policemen whose behaviour would later be proved to be impeccable. We also saw three White House aides attend the funeral. Lots and lots of ‘We feel your pain’ bullshit.

We turn now the murder of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle, allegedly at the hands of a Mexican laborer who had been deported five times. This same ‘illegal immigrant’ who was shielded against questioning or arrest as to his documentation status by the so-called ‘Sanctuary city’ of San Francisco bought a gun, and killed Kathryn Steinie. Strange to relate, not many people rioted on the San Francisco streets in response to this motiveless killing; no calls for a judicial review of the way in which this woman was shot as she walked with her father and a friend on the Embarcadero; no  high-profile civil-rights activists came to comfort the stricken parent as he watched his daughter moved into the morgue. Not a peep from the White House on the inaction of the so-called ‘Sanctuary City” of San Francisco’s authorities when they did not arrest this illegal immigrant despite Federal statutes stating that they must.

Now just stand back, and gaze at the two killings, if you will. Two very different crimes, but two killings just the same: one black man dies; one white woman dies, but there the equailty ends. One white woman dies at the hand and gun of a Mexican ‘illegal’, and the Country just shakes its collective head, and turns away. a black man dies after attempting to attack, maim or even kill a white policeman, and the city’s black population explodes into riot, the Washington big-wigs swarm the city, the civil-rights talking heads gear up for the long haul, and a cop resigns despite being cleared of any crime.

Do I hear the faint strains of ‘The Home of the Brave’ as they fade away; or was that tune ‘Nobody, nobody knows my, my sorrow’ instead?

With no shame they’ll elect the Beast

Here is the first couple of Paragraphs from an article that puts this post in perspective.

Two big Clinton stories landed last week. The first is that Hillary Clinton destroyed the electronic copies of her State Department emails on her private server after the State Department subpoenaed her emails. The second is that Hillary Clinton had an aide running a “secret spy network” that was, among other things, feeding her information on Benghazi, according to a report by Pro Publica and Gawker. Earlier this month, I noted the myriad ways that Clinton running her own private email server breathes new life into the Benghazi investigation, but this last revelation takes things to a whole new level.

Specifically, this new report suggests that three men — Sidney Blumenthal, Tyler Drumhiller, and Cody Shearer — were involved in her private intelligence gathering efforts. Each of these men has a reputation for being associated with scandal.

We only know about Clinton’s spy ring because a hacker who goes by the moniker “Guccifer” hacked the email account of former Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal and posted his emails online. (Guccifer is now serving a prison sentence in his native Romania.) Guccifer’s emails reveal Blumenthal was providing Clinton with detailed intelligence briefings on events in the Middle East and running the ad hoc spy ring. This arrangement is very curious, considering that the Obama White House made it clear that they didn’t want Blumenthal working for the administration after Hillary Clinton previously tried to formally hire him to work at the State Department.

hillary2016It would be nice if the left showed some decency and respect and got behind anyone besides the Hildabeast.

The US has quickly become a laughing stock on the world stage in the last 6 years. It will continue down that track for another 20 months. We will be genuinely lucky if the US doesn’t start a full scale war.  We have already restarted the cold war.

The next President will face several nightmares. The economy is a mess, we have more people unemployed for a longer period of time than we did in the great depression. They can stroke the numbers anyway they want, it doesn’t change the reality at the diner table. Our Foreign Policy however makes our domestic issues look like a picnic.

So who will take the reigns?

I have no clue who will capture the nomination on the right. I hope it would be Cruz, but he’s a longshot. I pray it’s NOT Bush. Jeb is a schmuck plain and simple. What worries me though is Hillary.

I’m not as much concerned about her policies as I am about her character. I know god forbid we speak of such a thing. All politicians by their nature have a slimy side. The longterm ones do anyway, and it’s to be expected. You don’t spend your life in that business unless you do.

The Clinton’s however are the Redneck Mafia. They are a criminal organization. The Clinton Foundation and Massage Parlor is a Money Laundering and Influence Peddling Bank and Clearing House.  If an Italian was running this organization his name would be Capone.

This “Foundation” has taken in over 100 Million Dollars from Foreign Donors while Hillary was Secretary of State. Her e-mail server is being blown off by the Press and the Power Players on the left. That server was and is the communication hub of an Illegal Intelligence Network run by Sidney Blumenthal, Tyler Drumhiller, and Cody Shearer.

When Clinton became Secretary of State she wanted Blumenthal as her assistant. Obama refused to allow her to hire him.  So on her own she contracted him to work for her on the side. Blumenthal and his group worked for her running an intelligence gathering network outside government oversight.  She ran this illegal network the entire time she was Secretary of State, and is still running it today.

Who is paying Blumenthal? Where is the Money for his and the others services coming from? All the communication that went on with this group was on the Server that Hillary destroyed.

It would be nice if those on the left held things like Law and Morality in High Esteem, but they don’t. The Beast is not Obama, but to most of those on that side she is the next best thing.

A Bad Day

By Patrick Van Roy On March 3rd, 2015 at 7:52 pm

Today the United States Government ceased to exist. We are no longer a Democratic Republic, we are a Dictatorship.

Boehner to bring clean DHS bill, as Democrats demand

The Republican House has officially conceded all power to the Royal Presidency.  They vowed they would not impeach, today they finalize that they will no longer govern. Not only are they not an opposition party they just set a dangerous president. They do not oppose the President taking the Congresses Constitutional Powers onto his Office.

By allowing the funding of Obama’s extra-constitutional orders on Illegal Immigrants to proceed with unopposed funding is consent for Obama to do what ever he chooses to do, period.

If he wants to and he does do this deal with Iran he will.  He hasn’t been following the Law for two years since he made the first changes to Obamacare. We elected a Republican Majority in both the House and the Senate to stop him.

What we got instead was a complete collapse of the rule of Law.

We are 2 months into TWO MORE YEARS of a Presidency that is not constrained by Law and is driven Ideologically to correct what HE believes is wrong with our Country. To say we are screwed would be the understatement of the Century.

Tomorrow

Tomorrow at 10:45 EST Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has a scheduled speech to Congress about Iran. There has been over six weeks of hand wringing, insulting, attacking and even sabotage over this speech before both houses of Congress. The administration has done more damage to itself by it’s antics than anything Bibi has to say.

The President of the United States is acting Unilaterally negotiating a deal with Iran. As with so many of this Presidents Policies he wants us to wait until it is done before he reveals to us what he has done. In an effort to rally both sides of our political spectrum together as one to stop a deal that will put our lives in as much danger as it will the Israelis. Speaker Boehner actually acted responsible and is doing what needs to be done for the security of the American People.

Iran is the worlds largest supporter of terror. It has has operatives that it has trained and supported of 5 continents. It is literally the head of the snake. It lead and controlled by a Death Cult that believe they bring about the end of times. That the Messiah that will arise will claim and rule the World under Islam and kill or enslave all that do not bow before it.

Under no circumstances can these people be allowed to have the Bomb.

The Prime Minister is uniquely qualified to speak on this topic and is the best chance of trying to creat a United Front in stopping this path of suicide that the Presidents ideology prevents him from even acknowledging exists.

I look forward the Speech and say God Speed Bibi.

Great Words from a Good Man

By Patrick Van Roy On February 15th, 2015 at 6:10 am

I don’t agree with some of this man’s Politics. One thing I do know is he is a Good Man.  He acts to do what he believes is right. He doesn’t just say or sing pretty words. He has spoken truth to power on many occasions, but more importantly he act’s on his beliefs. Those actions can not be denied nor can these Words.

Congress shall make no law

By Patrick Van Roy On February 11th, 2015 at 4:43 pm

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Unless of course you’re a Democrat on the FEC.  These people need to be Tarred and Feathered (just an expression, I’m not calling for it to actually happen)

They once again are trying to take away our Freedom of Speech… this is an outrage!

 

Federal Election Commission to Consider Regulating Online Political Speech

(CNSNews.com) — The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is holding a hearing today to receive public feedback on whether it should create new rules regulating political speech, including political speech on the Internet that one commissioner warned could affect blogs, YouTube videos and even websites like the Drudge Report.

The hearing is a response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in McCutcheon v. FEC last year, which struck down the FEC’s previous cap on aggregate campaign contributions from a single donor in an election cycle.

Before the decision, individuals were limited to a combined total of $46,200 in contributions to all federal candidates, and $70,800 to federal political action committees and parties.

Individuals are no longer restricted by aggregate limits, which Chief Justice John Roberts said “intrude without justification on a citizen’s ability to exercise ‘the most fundamental First Amendment activities’.”

They may now “contribute up to $2,600 per election to a federal candidate, $10,000 per calendar year to a state party committee, $32,400 per calendar year to a national party committee, and $5,000 per calendar year to a PAC [political action committee],” according to the FEC.

The commission, which consists of three Republican and three Democratic members, last considered such regulations in 2005. However, intense opposition from First Amendment groups resulted in rules that were limited to paid advertisements from political campaigns, parties, and PACs.

This time around, organizations like the Electronic Frontier Foundation have warned that some Democrats on the commission would like to impose much more burdensome regulations that could serve as the equivalent of spending caps in restricting political speech.

Break out the Popcorn

By Patrick Van Roy On February 7th, 2015 at 4:30 pm

This is the entertainment that I live for.  The House Select Committee on Benghazi announced that both Democrats and Republicans want to schedule the appearance of Hillary Clinton “as soon as possible.”

God I hope the majority of this will be on C-Span.  It should be.  It actually should be on ALL networks overriding regular programing. “What difference does it make” indeed. I want to see the questioning by both sides. I want others to have to watch.  To see who the weasels are.  Make the Circus mandatory to watch. Shine the Lights on them all.  Public exposure to the light of the masses is the best disinfectant for the diseases that infect Politics.
