Dangerously Dumb

If you watch the news you may have seen CNN’s Jim Acosta make a fool out of himself, and be made a fool of, at a White House press briefing recently. In response to Steven Miller’s announcement of Trump’s plan for reforming legal immigration , Jim decided to try for a YouTube moment……..which he got, just not the one he wanted. Acosta attempted to quote the poem associated with the Statue of Liberty as immigration law, and argued his partisan resistance to such stipulations as speaking English and having a way to support yourself by………wait for it……..barfing up platitudes and 3rd grade logic……..like every other Progressive I’ve ever had the misfortune of listening to.  The problem is, it’s not just him.

Chris Cuomo, the mental giant whom is not a beneficiary of political/corporate nepotism in the least, went on his Fakebook page to present a video of himself explaining what a racist I am, and by extension anyone who agrees with the merit-based plan, and how – by his estimation – none of our ancestors would have made the cut. There are many Progressives in the Kabuki Theater of the 2 party system spewing this nonsense……..I’m just picking on these two guys because they perfectly illustrate my internal debate: Is their dishonesty purposeful, or are they all complete effing idiots? I’ll make a confession here……I used to think it was intentional intellectual dishonesty, and for some of the players in D.C. and New York it is…..but for the talking heads on TV I now believe, nay I know……that they are complete morons. I mean it. They are as dumb as a box of doorknobs…….completely ignorant of civics, the formation and organization of law and government, and even the fairly recent history and culture of the very country that they were bred from and now unfortunately inhabit.

It’s not a lot of people’s fault, really. I have no doubt that if I had gone to college, or was perhaps a decade younger, that my exposure to Identity/Victimhood Politics would have been much greater. In fact, in hindsight I feel blessed to have been born into what I consider The Last Age Of America…….and I feel pity for those that have been on the receiving end of Collectivist/Socialist/Social Justice indoctrination…..until they become extremely loud and ironically intolerant, which they usually do.

So, for the good of my argument, let’s talk about the famous poem that our self-described “betters” think is United States Immigration Law and Policy. The poem reads as you’ve heard ( I won’t dedicate the space to it here, feel free to look it up ), with references to “bringing….your tired, your poor…..your huddled masses yearning to be free”……..all that stuff, and that’s all great. It’s a nice poem. A nice poem that isn’t part of the Statue of Liberty, not engraved on the statue, or even a design of the artist and architect that brought Lady Liberty to life. It’s a nice poem given by friends of the poet – during a time when money was being raised for the construction of the pedestal and museum at the base of the statue. Until 1986 it rested inside the pedestal building, and since then is located in the museum. It is not United States Law. It is not United States Immigration Policy. In fact, the poem is completely incongruous to the designer’s intent. You see, Lady Liberty is stepping forward, away from our shores……leading her lamp to light the other nations of the world, inspiring within them the fire of individual freedom and independence. But according to our Progressive friends, she’s actually holding out her arms, food stamps in one hand and government check in the other, to receive the illiterate and intolerant masses of the third world……with the check picked up by you and your racist, privileged offspring.

The Cuomos and Acostas of the world are just too damned stupid to know, and therefore are incapable of telling you. Have they told you that previous immigration waves in the United States went on with strict guidelines, or that conditions like a hernia in the groin, or a suspicious cough, were enough to get you put back on the boat? How about that until the last few decades of Progressive control of immigration there was no welfare or public assistance available to immigrants, legal or not?   So, when Chris Cuomo sites his Italian-immigrant ancestors, he evidently doesn’t realize that they were dependent on personal responsibility and self-reliance, and ultimately assimilation, in order to become successful. Does he display the Italian flag at his home? Do he and his children speak English and celebrate American customs? Yeah, that’s what I thought.

What else are the Media and Political Elite really, really dumb about? Worse, how many people tune into them and actually believe the bullsqueeze they’re selling? Do you think they know what they’re talking about when they spend months obsessing on Russia? When they talk about how our government works, and how the President is supposed to behave, do they really know? When they tell you what to believe, do you listen? When they say what is a threat to you and what will benefit you, are they lying about it……….or making it up? We are in a strange place in time, for sure. The people who run the world have done so for generations, and have succeeded because of their toadies and willing accomplices in the “press”, who controlled what you saw and under what circumstances you saw it. Those days cannot end fast enough………because the dumbness of those with the duty of informing us has become dangerous.

” You cannot simultaneously have free immigration and a welfare state” – Milton Freidman

“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.” – Theodore Roosevelt

Death By Demography

Western Civilization, in Europe and America, isn’t just committing cultural suicide……..but it is also self-extinguishing the people who built the modern world. Americans and Europeans share more than just a common past and cultural identity, they share a dying birthrate amongst their citizens. Politicians in The West have seen this problem coming, and their grand solution is, and has been, immigration. In America it’s illegal immigrants swarming across the border, as well as centrally planned importation of muslim “refugees” from Somalia and North Africa. In Europe, the E.U. has systematically ferried in millions and millions of North African and Middle Eastern muslims to replace and refill the barren households of their nations. This may have guaranteed short-term sustainability for government coffers, but offers nothing but long-term disaster for everyone else.

Speaking of Europe, there are many examples of the demographic problem. In the U.K., the most popular name for babies – all babies – is Mohammed. The government tries to massage the numbers by counting variations of the name, but when the different spellings are combined some incarnation of “Mohammed” is the winner. Since that statistic may offend some Brits, they are constantly assured by their Lords and Ladies that muslims are only about 20 percent of the country’s population ( up from 10 percent just 10 years ago ). Here’s the problem with that math: U.K.’s birthrate for non-muslims is at about 1.3 children per household, and falling. The birthrate for muslims in the United Kingdom is at 3.6 per household, and rising. That means that native Brits will be the minority in under 30 years.  In Sweden, according to the Vienna Institute of Demography, in just 20 years – and this is if muslim immigration stopped immediately – the majority of the population will be Sharia-compliant muslim.  This boom has other problems as well…….for example, 52 percent of British muslims are married to their 1st cousins……and in places like Bradford, U.K. that percentage goes up to 75 percent……and many of those are the products of marriage to 1st cousins as well…….so the incidents of genetic health problems have skyrocketed. Yes, inbreeding is a big problem in islam, but we’re not allowed to say that because their culture is as good as, or better than, ours……….right?

In Germany the birth rate for its citizens of Germanic origin is even less than the U.K., and the importation of migrants is even greater. Germany’s vast industrial base is now staffed in large part by its new muslim inhabitants…..at least until they learn that they can make more, and do less, on the public dime. France is having obvious problems with its human imports, but finding the numbers is difficult due to the French government’s lack of reporting or examination on the statistics – but a quick look at the number of islamic attacks over the past 5 years should inform everyone. Italy is being devastated by the number of African muslims making the short trip from Tunisia to its Mediterranean coasts…….crime has increased dramatically while tourism has, just as dramatically, decreased……and let’s face it, tourism is their bread and butter. I expect the demographics there, when assessed, will be just as dire as those in their northern European neighbors.

The United States has a birthrate amongst its citizens that mirrors Europe at 1.3 children per household. Hispanics that have immigrated to the U.S., by far mostly illegal, have a collective birthrate of 3.5 children per household. In California – where they have relinquished their border and relished their “sanctuary” status – 1 in 4 residents are non-citizens, and let’s be honest, the numbers are probably higher than that…….I’ve been hearing “20 million” illegals for 20 years. In Arizona the vast majority of grade school students are Hispanic and not proficient in English. In the United States as a whole, according to the Pew Research Center, 1 in 5 students in school levels kindergarten through high school are Hispanic. 10 years ago it was 1 in 8, and assuming the rate will continue, it will be 3 out of 5 in just ten more years.

Now, you may read all of this and say to yourself, ” So what? Everyone will adopt the practices and culture of their nation of residence and we’ll all be Americans”…..or Swedes, or Brits, or whatever the case may be. In short, if you think that way, you’re an idiot. In the past, in America and Europe, political correctness and modern tribalism did not exist – so the machinations of assimilation worked. A desire to adopt the culture of your host nation was culturally and legally enforced. For example, the children of Italian immigrants in the 1920’s learned and spoke English, not Italian…….because of…..well, shame. A sort-of cultural “bullying” took place, and the effect was assimilation. Another big factor in assimilation was that there was no Welfare, and if there was it was not available to non-citizens. Also, minor health conditions like a hernia ( turn your head and cough ) prohibited the affected immigrant’s entry. So for those allowed in, financially and culturally, it was in their best interest to “Americanize”, and all were beneficiaries of the result. The same machinery, in one form or another, has been responsible for successful assimilation of non-westerners into western culture throughout history……..until now.

The people in America and Europe have been taught by their Progressive Masters (those who control Academia and Government) to hate the very culture they come from. They have been taught that they are not individuals, but members, and therefore victims of, a group identity. They have been taught that Capitalism and the Judeo-Christian ethic that built the modern world, and gave us individual freedom, is evil and doesn’t work – yet they are not told of the 100 million plus deaths brought about by Secular Communism and Socialism in the 20th century alone. They have been taught that Western values and culture are at best equal to, and at worst inferior to, cultures from other parts of the world, as if the advancement of Western Civilization was an accident or product of malevolence. The truth is the complete reverse……and by the time they realize it, it will be too late. Will the Spanish-speaking descendants of illegal immigrants, who value a socialist mentality and think themselves victims of American culture, pay taxes and care for an aging American public? Will the descendants of muslim immigrants in Europe, whom value Sharia law and the teachings of Mohammed – and see themselves as victims of decadent secularism, pay taxes and care for the aging European public? No, they won’t. Now, in Europe and America, the immigrant re-creates the very failed culture they fled from, and we are – as a whole – ashamed of our successful culture, and so we do not insist on assimilation or even defend our own values. The kindergarten class of today is, in a mere 15 years, the adult future of tomorrow. Do you honestly think you will recognize what is coming?  It seems that what could not be accomplished by war……..will be accomplished by fertility.

Hysterics and Hypocrites

It would be kinda funny if it wasn’t so pathetic and dangerous.

Just a couple of points today……. I have been in a state of disbelief since November 9th, not because Trump won ( I called it early ), but because progressives have been committing intellectual suicide while trying to pretzel-twist logic into their warped worldview. Let me get this straight; John Podesta illegally uses a Gmail (really!!??) account to  conduct business with Clinton  (a.k.a. Secretary Sourgrapes), who herself used an illegal private server, and gets “hacked”. Then their unethical and criminal actions are leaked for all to see and………….it’s Russia’s fault? Sure.

Since the election, Universities and their staff have been providing counseling to disturbed adult-infants who are the product of an unserious and worthless “education”. What I would love to see is these same students realizing they have indebted themselves for life for an education that has not taught them critical thinking, civics, classical logic, or a marketable skill. How appropriate it is that young ignorants, Hollywood, and the progressive left have adopted the Safety Pin as their logo…….I guess they don’t realize that safety pins are used to  keep crap in diapers.

I’m also concerned at the frantic attempt to either reignite the  Cold War, or start a Hot War, with Russia. Huh? I’ve listened to the left mock anyone who viewed Communism unfavorably my whole life, in addition to pushing for Marxism/Socialism in every aspect of American politics…… but now these same people ( who loved Socialist-Moscow Honeymooner Bernie Sanders? ) are terrified of a non-existent “Red Scare”. It’s getting super confusing. So China’s our buddy….Iran’s our buddy…..but Russia hates Clinton? Didn’t she give Putin twenty percent of our Uranium? Didn’t she and Obama give Iran, Russia’s trading partner, billions of dollars and a nuclear greenlight, all while Iran was killing Americans and our allies, taking U.S. sailors hostage, and ransoming captives for illegal cash? I guess the Corpse-Otherwise-Known-As-John-McCain and his not-so-secret lover Lindsey Graham ignore all that while trying to get us into yet another neverending war.

All while CNN and it’s cultlike worshippers don’t report that the stock market has literally reached a new record high EVERY DAY since Trump was elected, and companies are keeping jobs in America……….and he hasn’t even taken office.

Obama and the left now are concerned that Trump is questioning the funding, budget, and intelligence of the CIA. What? These are the same people that have vilified the CIA in speeches, interviews, policy decisions, and made them the “bad guy” in every movie Hollywood has ever made ( Jason Bourne anyone? ), yet now they completely trust the purveyors of Blacksites and Waterboards? Weird.

The icing on the cake is the fake “fake news” meme. Let me get this right……any news outlet that serves the globalist progressives is “real news”, and any outlet that doesn’t is fake, and we must censor them? What is TMZ, People magazine, and Yahoo going to do…..or are they “real news”? You know, like The View.

I’m glad that Obama, who notoriously skipped a majority of his briefings and didn’t even show up for work until 10 am, and who stuck taxpayers with over 300 million dollars in vacation spending,  decided to criticize the President-Elect on the prestigious and serious news forum of…………wait for it……..The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. 

The only upside of the actions of the Establishment is this: Keep it up ,because the dumber you sound, and more childish you behave, the more ordinary people will realize  how ignorant and corrupt you are. So just keep on cryin’…… because the only thing you could elect Hillary Clinton to be was President of California.

Peace Sells, But Who’s Buying?

This is the most important election of my lifetime. After nearly 2 decades of transformation, the America I grew up in, and learned about in school, has nearly vanished. It started after 9/11 with the creation of The Patriot Act, a massive intrusion into our privacy and violation of the 4th Amendment ( Unlawful search and seizure ), continued with a failed and flawed strategy of Middle East war, and then really picked up steam with the election of King Barry. The Boy King rose to power with promises of “Hope and Change”, yet once in office he doubled and tripled down on Dubya’s progressivism……. ramming through every dream policy of the Globalist Elite. More feckless and unproductive war, more Government intrusion, and most importantly, MORE CONTROL.

I’m old enough to remember when Uncle Sam wasn’t the creepy Uncle nobody wanted at Thanksgiving dinner. Media, Hollywood, and Government have colluded to divide us into Tribes, and it’s definitely taking its toll. Funny…..I was taught to judge people by what they do and how they act, not by what does or doesn’t dangle between their legs or how much melanin they have in their skin. It makes me wonder if Martin Luther King would weep at the absolute destruction of the future he spoke of in his “I Have a Dream” speech. I guess he’s spinning, along with the Founders, in his grave like a rotisserie chicken in hyperdrive.

In choosing between policy platforms in this election, the choice is clear. Trump represents a return to Americanism, more-than-competitive tax rates, school choice, border security, energy independence, fiscal responsibility, and opportunity based on individual merit regardless of economics, ethnicity, and education.

Hillary represents at least 4 more years of the disastrous course Obama has set us on…..at best.  She hasn’t even attempted to lay out an agenda…….just ask her supporters and they give inane, ignorant answers like, “She’s for women”, or “it’s her turn”. Most have fallen victim to the massive media campaign against Trump and buy into the “he’s a racist”, or “he hates homosexuals” pablum……yet when I, or anyone else, asks for examples of this supposed hate, they have nothing to say because there isn’t anything. Or worse, they quote lies that have been exposed through leaked emails and campaign communications.

So what if Hillary has been outed as telling the American people one thing, and her Wall Street donors another? So what if she fearmongers LGBT and feminist groups about Trump while she has taken millions from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and other nations that execute homosexuals and require women to only be in public with a male guardian?  So what her husband met with the Attorney General and her Under-Secretary bribed FBI officials during the investigation into her criminality, resulting in non-indictment? So what her campaign and PACs are ON VIDEO planning and executing violence and fake protests at her opposition rallies? So what she claims to be an advocate for African Americans while supporting and funneling money into groups like Planned Parenthood, who are responsible for the fetal genocide of millions upon millions of mostly African American babies? So what her campaign chief, John Podesta, has been exposed as being in bed with Putin and his oil stocks, yet they and the media act as if Trump is?

Trump is crass and a narcissist, and as a private citizen made some lewd comments. His words and deeds as a private citizen mean absolutely nothing compared with the words and deeds of a Senator and then Secretary of State while speaking and acting on the behalf of The United States.  Why are so many so ignorant of the difference? Donald Trump’s fingerprints are NOT ON A SINGLE LAW OR POLICY that has had  any effect on our lives, yet Hillary has taken pay-for-play dollars from hostile nations and corporations while representing The United States, and has used every position she has ever held to enrich herself and deceive the public.

America’s positions and lead-from-behind policies under President Obama and “The Butcher of Benghazi” Hillary Clinton have led to a world in chaos. Virtually everything either has touched has turned into a steaming pile of dung. Healthcare? Check. Military? Check. Unemployment? Check. Immigration? Check. Terrorism? Check. Tribalism and racial division? Big fat check.

Mikhail Gorbachev, former premier of the U.S.S.R., now says that the U.S. and Russia are closer to war than ever before, all while Clinton and Kaine bizarrely made several references to nuclear war in their respective debates. There are millions obsessed with rumor and innuendo of a private citizen’s escapades while Russia has moved at least 50 nuclear tipped missiles to the border of Poland, recalled its foreign personel, and had a nation-wide nuclear drill. Who cares that we are illegally involved in Syria’s ( a sovereign nation that has called for assistance from its ally, Russia ) civil war, and that it has brought us to the very brink of war? Even nutty Green Party candidate Jill Stein is warning that Hillary would start another world war………..yet many are obsessed with the never-ending hit and run Trump accusers, whose timing is awfully convenient, and for whom the media doesn’t investigate or retract when shown to be false.

We may not be able to stave off the coming storm, but we should not choose the candidate, Hillary Clinton, who is seeding the clouds and cheering the thunder.
