Baby Boomers almost eliminated racism

I had a brain-fart the other day thinking about how and why the race relations have deteriorated in the U.S. in recent years.  It should have become better when I think back to when I was a kid and how the kids of different skin shades got along with each other.

As I remember it as teens and 20-somethings, what brought us all together, regardless of skin shade was music, and entertainment in general.  We didn’t care what shade of tan Chubby Checker’s skin was, or Otis Redding, Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross or Gladys Knight.  I wasn’t a sports fan of any stripe, but the players were just sports players after Jackie Robinson.

Most people with darker skin tones, acted like people, sure they dressed weird at times, but some of us imitated a bit of their attire as kids do at times.  But the men in entertainment acted like gentlemen (we didn’t yet know about Bill Cosby, [Alexander Scott] or even Rock Hudson).

It almost seemed at the time that people with different skin color had their own sub-culture in their community, the Hunkys lived within a few blocks of all the other Hungarians, same for the Puerto Ricans, the Germans, the Italians and the Africans.  They had their social clubs and block parties, but wouldn’t exclude or even cast an evil-eye on an outsider who happened to live in the next block, or was a guest at their club.

This was all before it became profitable to stir up grievances and extortion became the norm.  All this seemed to happen AFTER King was shot and Jackson, et al, picked up the mantel and twisted it to what we have today.  Obama is simply the end result of all that anger and guilt.  It may get worse before it gets better.


Equal Opportunity Usurpation

The reason why Ted Cruz must be declared eligible is because if he isn’t eligible then neither is the criminal impostor in the White House.

The republicans, never having been known for having a spine or truly standing up as conservatives now fancy themselves as equal-opportunity usurpers, a la Barack Obama.  Since 2008 the American people, elected state and federal cowards officials have had ample fact-based information regarding Obama’s ineligibility, though they tried mightily to scrub any historical, legal, factual, and documented proof of the requirements of Article II, Section 2, Clause 5 of the United States Constitution, case law, and the proof of forgery and deceit in the placement of Obama in the White House.

I believe that the RNC and DNC at the highest levels in 2008 were both complicit in shutting down all discussion of Obama’s constitutional eligibility issue in the Congress, Main Stream Media, Print Press, and in the leading conservative Talk Show radio stations. I believe that the RNC and the DNC were complicit in subverting Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of…

I’m a Christian and I think ‘Noah’ deserves a four star review

As usual, the most hyped movie advertisements on TV commercials are the crappiest movies. Good movies do not need the hype.

The Matt Walsh Blog

untitled (37)

On Friday, my wife and I had a very rare date night.

Naturally, we decided to spend it being pummeled by the blaring condescension of the most insipid, absurd, unimaginative, clumsily contrived piece of anti-Christian filmmaking to come along since, well, probably just last week.

In fact, if I learned anything from Noah, it’s this: despite popular perception, you can often judge a book by its cover. Also, giant deformed rock monsters make for awkward supporting characters.

We’ll meditate on that second item in a moment, but it’s the first point that should be especially emphasized.

Christians: you’ll hear people insist that you can’t criticize the movie until you’ve seen it. Noticeably, the loudest voices in this camp are the ones who will (rather coincidentally, I’m sure) profit immensely if you meet their challenge.


Don’t bother.

You can hate this film without watching it, for the same reason…

If the Republicans are going to pander….

Then at least pick a candidate who can win..big.

The GOP have been elevating good looking Republicans over the past decade or more to pander to the groups representing a stark minority within the GOP.  People like; Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Ted Cruz, Nikki Haley of South Carolina, Herman Cain, Alan West, Michele Bachman, Sarah Palin and others.  These are all good people in their own right.  Some even meet the eligibility requirements to be President of the U.S. and all could certainly do a better job then our current occupant of the White House, in my opinion.

Who I believe could run and win in a big way is the current Governor of New Mexico, Susana Martinez.  I believe this for a couple of reasons.  The first being she holds strong conservative values and made the decision switch to Republican after she had a soul searching.  So she is a decided Republican and she has a proven track record of leadership.  

Should Hillary win the nomination, Susana could blunt the feminist attacks that are sure to be hurled at her opponent, and then there is her Mexican heritage with a wonderful Spanish surname.  The icing on the cake is that there is no doubt about her being a natural-born citizen, eligible to serve as Commander-in-Chief.

Constitution, Education, Family, Guns, media, Military, Politics

By the short hairs.

The ruling elite are getting a big laugh at us scurrying around bleating like sheep while they do exactly as they please.  “Let them complain.” they say, “What else can the sheep do besides bleat?”  If the sheep begin to zero in on an injustice and make too many waves, the ruling elite simply redirect our ire to another, even more egregious injustice, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

Most Americans are uneducated by design. The sole purpose of the “publik skuhl sistim” is to produce compliant taxpayers. It is doing a pretty good job. Then the media (including Faux News) validates the skuhl’s Marxist teachings. The ruling elite then pass and enforce laws as they see fit with total indifference to all the bleating from the sheep of a compliant, cowardly nation.

All that remains to do, is to remove the teeth of the sheep dogs one by one by arresting them, killing them, disarming them and intimidating them into submission by hurting their families. Soon even the sheep dogs will start to bleat like the sheep. Oh, “From my cold dead hands!” the sheep dogs holler.  Yeah right.  The wolves are at the door in full military battle armor with 14 fully automatic rifles and a few automatic shotguns, your wife and kids are standing behind you and you say you are going to fight.  No you will submit and hope they don’t come back.

Guns, Politics

Background checks?

Let’s see if any facts matter to the gun-banners, shall we? When Jimmy Carter expanded the civil rights of the mentally ill and opened the doors on the U.S. asylums, the folks that needed mental treatment the most simply walked out and moved in under our bridges and into cardboard boxes.
Police are no longer permitted to detain someone like Aaron Alexis at a local hospital’s psychiatric ward for 2 weeks of counseling and medication (if necessary).
If that intervention were still permitted, 13 people this week and dozens of others in the past would still be alive.
The liberals refuse to decouple this mental health issue from gun-ban for fear of loosing the argument on guns without the background check component.

Does melanin affect reasoning?

What question should be asked about why the perception of so many people of one race is so much different than that of many other members in that same society? Is the answer related to one’s skin color and their ability to process facts? That does not make any sense.

This may be in the nature versus nurture argument where science debates if genetics or environment are causation for one’s actions. Genetically we all are decedents of the sons of Noah. Although the hypothesis has been made that with each generation we have become less intelligent*, a lower I.Q. as our cellular makeup looses information by dilution and disease. The argument goes, that since Noah’s Flood, we are exposed to higher levels of Solar radiation that damages cells and their ability to resist biological attacks and can distort the structures within cells that affect perfect cellular replication. But, this should affect everyone to a near equal degree.

The answer could then be our environment (nurture). This seems to be the obvious explanation. But, why so many people of one classified skin color and not more people with similar environments of all the various melanin levels? This explanation seems vapid as well.

What seems to remain then is political coercion. History has proved manipulation of large self-identified groups of people possible and sometimes deadly. Those sitting on opposite sides of a political chess board have their strategy to achieve their concept of victory. What could be the stratagem of these instigator’s promotion of the recent rise of racial tensions? What do they wish to gain? And, can the pawns, knights, bishops and rooks be convinced they are unwitting game pieces in this dangerously serious board game?

The best solution therefore must be spiritual, the outpouring of love for the unwitting and changing their hearts. Then can they see the lies for what they are and understand Satan’s stratagem for the world.

* not less educated

media, Military

The left believes our military is ineffective.

The argument being used for including females in ground combat military forces, bad breath distances (infantry, armor, special forces) is that the U.S.A. needs to have the highest efficency combat force it can have. WHAT? What that red herring statement is implying is that we currently have a less than efficient force in the field, and we won’t have that until the U.S.A military has men AND women in the same foxhole. That is offensive.

Of course now all girls over the age of 18 will now have to register for the draft (Selective Service). The proponents of this asinine idea have never been in a close combat role. It is somewhat embarrassing enough for men to preform their personal hygene, ETC. in the field with other men (some of whom are sexually attracted to them). Add a couple of females into a building under seige with enemy fire, or as one of a four man crew in a tank out in the field with lonely, horney ninteen year old guys that are coming down from daily adrealine rushes, and you know there will be problems.

A combat rediness loss of total troop (?) strength of 2-5% for pregnancy is common now in Navy ships, add to that the additional 2-5% potential loss of troop strength for the men facing court-martial and immediate ‘sensitivity training’ immersion programs. This will make a LESS than currently effective fighting force.

An opinion on gun control

Monster Hunter Nation

I didn’t want to post about this, because frankly, it is exhausting. I’ve been having this exact same argument for my entire adult life. It is not an exaggeration when I say that I know pretty much exactly every single thing an anti-gun person can say. I’ve heard it over and over, the same old tired stuff, trotted out every single time there is a tragedy on the news that can be milked. Yet, I got sucked in, and I’ve spent the last few days arguing with people who either mean well but are uninformed about gun laws and how guns actually work (who I don’t mind at all), or the willfully ignorant (who I do mind), or the obnoxiously stupid who are completely incapable of any critical thinking deeper than a Facebook meme (them, I can’t stand).

Today’s blog post is going to be aimed at the first group…

Constitution, Education, media

The too silent majority.

Conservatives/Libertarians/Constitutionalists/Tea Partiers NEED to “grab more attention”.  The Marxists’ playbook is to be bombastic to catch the news attention, and garner interest even if what they puke out are lies, the more ridiculous the assertion, the more attention they receive. An recent example is Piers Morgan’s serial interviews with the pro-self defense leadership. Watched by both sides of the issue, he now falsely believes he is a popular commentator.
The uninformed sheep who feed on reality TV and salacious stories are drawn to these outlandish falsehoods, because they are more interesting than the dullness of reality.
Constitutionalists, et al (right) tend to be more law-abiding, truthful, thoughtful and not as emotion based when solving problems and are therefore more dull and boring. The anti-self defense crowd only need to capture an image with a one line description supporting their ideology to influence the sheep. The right then to counter the image or sound-bite needs to fully explain the truth of the matter with statistics, charts, footnotes, et cetera. Boooorrriing!
I am becoming more convinced the right needs to begin fighting fire with fire. By using the “Any publicity is good publicity.” tactic to draw attention to the subject thus prompting a lengthy debate on the truthfulness of the topic.  Of course the media, as it tends to do will find the most benign, moderate or uninformed representative to offer an opposing view, i.e. Senator Lindsey Graham as the ultimate Republican-view spokesman. An effective offense is necessary instead of always being on the defense. (So in honor (?) of today’s sports lineup, a good quote would be “The best defense is a good offense.”)
Instead of meekly stating we have our God-given right to keep and bear arms to protect our homes or hunt, we need to express the truth aggressively that the Second Amendment was written to inform the Federal government officials that We The People have the right and the will to violently defend that right should the need arise.

Education, Spirituality

One only needs to read and believe the first five words of the Bible to understand the fallacy of evolution. Our nation was founded on natural law, to advance Progressivism, natural, GOD given law, must be usurped with gub’mint given law. When ‘natural law’ is not from GOD, it can be legislatively changed. To do so requires the Marxists, Progressives, Stalinists, Communists, Socialists, et al, to remove GOD from all gub’mint and private influence and excoriate those that believe in HIM.

Matthew 24:9 King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.”

Evolutionism and Creationism are both religions.  You have to believe in them to support them.  The difference is the evolution religion is supported by tax dollars.~ Kent Hovind

Why is that?

This post is the first in a series of discussions regarding science and the progressives, expanding on my earlier articles to add another perspective on why evolution theory was adopted by the progressive leftists, communists, fascists, eugenicists, and the New World Order as the means of creating a one-world society with pure races (e.g., the elite) which would deny individuality, creativity, and individual  and national sovereignty.  Social disorganization and intentional disruption is masked by this pseudo-science  to confuse and cover up the true intent of those who would enslave the world.

To provide a background for further discussions as to why the religion of evolution is so dangerous to our society today, we…

Reply to dr. kate “The Compact is Broken”

This is my reply to dr.kate’s post “The Compact is Broken”
The fundamental principal on which the American States united was founded and fought for, was that “all men are created equal”. That one man who is called a king (or group of men) is not “more equal” than any other man/person.
The situation we now find ourselves, is of our own making., Our disinterest in the integrity of our representatives and the process of choosing those men whom we send in our stead and instead childishly becoming more interested in how long some Hollywood marriage lasts has given us what we got.
The initial requirement to be included in this process, of only land owners having the right to vote, was a sound condition, as these will be the people that have a stake in the governing of the country. Those that pay no taxes and are suckling at the government teat only have their own self interest in mind.
The fight that may need to be, will not only be with the ruling elite from both wings of our one political party (republicrats) but also with their enslaved minions who rely on “massar” to feed and clothe them.
The problem is obvious to me, the solution is not.

Eligibility, media

Just my own theory on eligibility…

As one who is just a fly on the wall, listening and reading what I find about Obama’s unwillingness to settle the eligibility issue, the question bothering me with regard to Obama and his lack of eligibility to be POTUS has been WHY.

Why was he allowed to be sworn in when there is so much, obviously credible, evidence he is not eligible? Why has this issue been drowned out by all the other squelch in the former main stream media. Why do Obama’s supporters appear so willing to take a bullet for this guy?

From the vast amount of information available and not so readily available, I have gleaned my own theory of what is really going on. (Before you Obats begin foaming at the mouth on this, I will admit here this is only my own theory. Nothing more.)

I theorize that a very powerful entity, such as “the mob”, through its operatives in government offices, manned by members of the SEIU, have found Obama’s official Kenyan Birth Certificate, or his Hawaiian Birth Certificate with an embarrassing notation of his parentage. This gives “the mob” the ultimate bargaining chip to control Obama.

This would be one explanation for the daily visits or phone conversations between Obama and the unions, the sweetheart deals for the GM union employees, the expansion of the Federal Government workforce, etc. Viewed through this prism, more of the unfathomable decisions and reasons for Obama’s actions, and/or lack of action, make sense.

There are other theories of course, but this one seems to me to ring the truest.


Our responsiblity to own a gun!

An individual can only be coerced in one of two ways; by logic and reason or by force, none other. For an individual to be convinced against their position, they must be willing to read/listen to the argument opposed to the one they hold, whether rational or not. This is how a civil society should operate but unfortunately there are those that choose to use force to assert their will on other people.

If one is to be convinced counter to their decision, to relinquish a portion of their earned wages, force or the threat of force by an armed criminal or the government would be the only way they could be convinced, sans a compelling argument for them to voluntarily fork over what they have in their pocket or mail in a check. The only counter remaining would be to have at their disposal an equal or greater force to use for their defense. This is the exclusive method of the tyrant and/or criminal. A law abiding libertine would not use force to coerce another of their position.

Having available, a tool to defend oneself against the criminal and tyrants is the responsibility of the libertine and law abiding citizens, for when the good do nothing, evil will prosper. Failure to defend society against criminals and tyranny is in itself evil, and most people will choose to live in a civil society not fear.
