Law of 22 Prairial or Liberals Finally Learn From History

As a student of history I am always digging around in the past. It is often a wonderful, eye opening and sometimes very difficult hobby to have. History is replete with stories of good and evil, life and death, right and wrong, clarity and confusion and action and indifference. Even so, I never thought I would live to see the French Revolution in person.

During the French Revolution, Georges Couthon, an ally of Robespierre on the infamous Committee Of Public Safety, introduced on 10 June 1794, the Law of 22 Prairial. The law was named for the day it was passed under the new and improved French Republican Calendar. The stated purpose of the law was to expedite the handling of traitors to the state. The unstated purpose of the law was to allow the tyrants of the committee to execute their opposition with as little “legal” maneuvering by the accused as possible. Under this law, the accusation became the conviction. Trials, evidence or witnesses were no longer needed. The accused were not even allowed to mount a defense. They were accused and beheaded as quickly as the overworked guillotine could be pressed into service.

It seems that liberals, democrats and progressives have been studying up on their French Revolution history lately. The Kavanaugh charade forced upon us by these intolerant and hateful political hacks is proof that they are capable of not only learning but of sincere imitation as well. Like the vile Law 22, liberals expect the unproven, unsubstantiated and clearly politically timed accusations against Kavanaugh to serve as his indisputable conviction. Thus convicted, he and his family must pay the price for potentially betraying the precious liberal political agenda.

Like the tens of thousands of innocent French men and women butchered during the “revolution” Brett Kavanaugh needs to be destroyed with as little opportunity to defend himself as possible. He must be denied a defense at every turn. Even worse, his family must be made to suffer excruciatingly before they too are finally consumed in the fires of progressive self righteous indignation.

The public savaging of Kavanaugh and his family will, liberals hope, serve as a prime example of what happens to decent and honorable people who cross the Committee. The message must get out loud and clear, only Committee approved applicants need apply, for any position.

The ally of today’s self righteous little Robespierre’s, liberals, democrats and progressives all, is the media. The alleged journalists of this self anointed Committee Of Public Safety pursue political correctness and gender loyalty with a blind fervor that would earn the heartfelt smile of both Robespierre himself and his mentor, the devil.

The reign of terror in France was finally ended with many of the Committee Of Public Safety members experiencing the cutting edge of the guillotine. It is hard to deny that there was a certain amount of poetic justice in their end. The guillotine is no longer an option today but the ballot box is. It is time we stopped electing Senators and Congressmen who defer to today’s version of the Committee instead of representing we, the American People.

There is an old saying that goes along the lines of “those who don’t remember history are doomed to repeat it.” Smiling broadly, Robespierre, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, Amin and a hundred other murderous tin plated dictators, from the hottest parts of hell, bathed in the blood of their victims, look at today’s liberal democrats and smiling hopefully think, “Well done comrades, well done indeed.”

Never Forget, Never Again

Another 9-11 anniversary has come and gone. It has been now 17 years since that tragic day awoke a sleeping giant in nearly the same way December 7, 1941 did. Unlike the day that will “live in infamy” the giant this time, sadly, soon went right back to sleep.

Today far to many people have no idea of the scope of what actually happened that day. That is a tragedy in and of itself. Compounding that sad reality is the fact that many of our “leaders” are just fine with that.

In Sandy, Utah, not far from my home a memorial service is held every year. It’s called “The Healing Field.” In short, it is a field of soft, green grass, with the majestic Rocky Mountains as the background, planted with a single flag for every one lost on that horrible day. Each flag carries a picture of the person who was murdered that day along with a short biography. Standing in the midst of all those flags, the true enormity of what happened that day is overwhelming. In a moment of silence one can almost hear the victims whispering to you in the flapping sounds of all those flags. No picture, no description will, or can, do it justice. It must be seen, and felt, in person.

The volunteers who man this testament to the lives stolen tell everyone that, if a flag touches you while you are walking around it is because that person wants you to get to know them. I suspect there is more truth to that than we can imagine. I have gotten to know many of the victims.

For a very short while after the attack, we were all Americans. Liberals, democrats and progressives (there is virtually no difference between them) ran to America’s defense, only to abandon her days later. That abandonment was swift, brutal, total and typical of how liberals, democrat and progressives think and act.

The poor souls who died in the towers were called “little Eichmans”, a hideous and completely fabricated NAZI reference whose only intent was to demean, or perhaps endorse, their murder.

We allowed our sworn enemy to blind us with the meaningless propaganda of “islamophobia.” We not only tolerated but accepted the inane concept that accurately describing islam made us “racists.” For the record islam is a religion not a race. (It is a sad indictment of our education system that something so blinding obvious needs to be explained)

Despite a complete lack of evidence, we have allowed ourselves to be browbeaten into accepting that hate crimes against moslems are at an all time high. In fact, nearly every “hate” crime reported ends up being an islamic perpetrated hoax. Even then, we are not allowed notice that fact.

Instead of mourning the hideousness of what was perpetrated in the name of their god, our alleged fellow citizens, the aforementioned liberals, democrats and progressives, have intentionally concocted a swirling, white hot mass of anti American vitriol which they spew with glee. For them, 9-11 is simply another “crisis” that must not be allowed “to go to waste.”

They have placed their cards on the table. They hate the country I love, the country me, my father and grandfather all served proudly. They actively despise the one country that has done more good for the entire world than any other country in the planets history. I get it. You are entitled to your opinion, however misguided, misinformed or evil it may be.

I have placed my cards on the table as well. I am just as pissed off over what happened 17 years ago now as I was then. I will not forget. I will do everything I can to be certain that something like that never happens again. I will point out at every opportunity the vapid stupidity of the America haters alleged facts. The victims, their families and those who survived 9-11 deserve nothing less.

Drowning in Syrup

It goes without saying that anyone who was a POW has a certain amount of hero in them. Once upon a time, John McCain was a hero. In trading his heroic time as a POW for political expediency nothing that followed would, or could, be heroic.

Now that the media/DNC has had their McCain orgasm, can we get back to reality?

As I have written in earlier articles, I have little appreciation for the so called “Maverick” of the Senate. For starters, he never met an illegal alien that he didn’t think was entitled to everything you had in your wallet. His wallet of course, was off limits.

As a person, of course I grieve for his and his families suffering. Being married to my wonderful wife only a couple of years less than McCain and his wife I think I can approximate how his wife is feeling about now. She and her family have my deepest sympathies. I will pray for all of them.

Even so, McCain chose to make himself a political figure and thus, while many cannot, I can separate the person from the opportunist, narcissistic political hack that was John McCain, the Senator. Think I am incorrectly describing him? You simply need to read news reports about him during his presidential run or any time he sided with his party or parties president. I mean, they even swore he was not an American citizen.

Isn’t it curious how all the members of the so called media and their democrat accomplices poured (or vomited, depending on your perspective) their “love” and “respect” for John McCain all over us? How they marveled at his “decency”, “honor” and “courage”. They positively gushed over the fact that he was always willing to “cross the aisle” to work with democrats, even though the democrats never returned the favor. For days on end it was one glowing love fest after another. All from the very same people that hated him for nearly his entire career and made no efforts to hide that fact. Apparently the leader of the senate republican surrender caucus will be much missed, by his political opponents and his fellow swamp dwelling republican co-conspiritors.

I didn’t watch any coverage after the first day so I may have missed it but, where were all his fellow POW’s? Seems to me if he was such a beloved leader during that time they would have been beating down the doors to extol his virtues. Like I said, I might have missed that.

Then there was the much ballyhooed “conflict” between McCain and President Trump, who allowed the McCain family the use of Air Force 2 even though he didn’t have to, was never far from every “deeply saddened” journalists report. The incident was intended by the media to be a blunt instrument with which to attack the president. I’m sure, from the warm place I suspect he now occupies, McCain beamed with appreciation at the medias efforts to burnish his “maverick”, “bipartisan” and “straight talking” credentials. Honestly though, he was never much of any of those things.

As a fellow sailor allow me to help you out. Johnny boy, you picked a fight with someone who punched back hard and you lost. I suspect that being Admiral Daddys boy meant you never learned the lesson everyone else by middle school learned in that scenario, namely, get over it. Like the self absorbed narcissist he was he simply couldn’t let go of the “insult” from Trump. Instead of trying match his reputation and “reach across the divide” between him and the president, little Johnny had to go all self righteous and indignant. If you think about that response, it actually reveals more about McCain than it does Trump. While I’m certain that response made his media hack buddies extremely happy it was at best counter productive. It is further proof of how much he valued media approval over implementing a conservative agenda.

Now that the funeral is over I suspect the gushing wave of sickly sweet syrupy devotion to a media manufactured image will begin dissipating.

It’s about time. I’m drowning in the syrup.

They Are Already At War, You Just Don’t Know It

Like their beloved religion of peace, liberals will not tell you they are at war with America and American ideals. Make no mistake, they are at war. They have spent five decades dumbing down Americans, taking over as many public institutions as possible, corrupting the plain meaning of words, normalizing deviancy and getting the “right” judges on the bench. They have made stunning progress over the last sixty years but the election of Donald Trump now threatens everything they have accomplished. Like a wounded animal, liberals are at their most dangerous right now. They no longer seek to convert us to their enforced utopia voluntarily. Our conversion to their demented ideology will now be at gunpoint because the election of Trump makes it necessary. No less a mental midget than Maxine Waters has ordered the mobs deployed. BLM, ANTIFA, ACLU, SPLC, Planned Parenthood, NAACP, CAIR, college administrators, dozens of unions and other hate groups are ready, willing and able to answer the call.

 
Sanctimonious ignorance or righteous indignation, a requirement for the cohesion of any any mob, is also highly contagious. Liberals possess it in abundance. It readily affects the ill educated and simple minded but also possess seditious tentacles that carefully work their way into the reasoning processes of more educated people. History is replete with examples of those who were far to happy, and quick, to join an uninformed mob that fed itself on some righteous revulsion, real or, most often, imaginary. For these individuals the sometimes difficult work of reasoning, fact checking and deploying a healthy sense of skepticism is simply beyond their ability. They have been well trained. Thank you public education system, main stream media and hollywood icons.

 
The plan of attack has been well thought out and is now being executed with vigor. Liberal hate mongers deployed their hollywood hate brigades and media propaganda platoons for years in a “softening up” campaign. Now they have released the goon squads. They have empowered criminal elements to act with impunity and are now openly targeting elements of the government itself. Lets deal with the last one first.

 
Attacks on Law Enforcement.

 
A Sergeant in the Harris County Sheriff’s Office in Houston was treated for exposure to Fentanyl after he touched a flier left on the windshield of his car. The tainted fliers were placed on all the police cars in the parking lot. Luckily only the Sergeant was affected and thankfully he will be okay. Cops no longer have to worry about just getting thrown out of restaurants, coffee shops or being shot, liberals will poison them just as easily.

 
ICE employees have already been targeted. From WikiLeaks, “ICEPatrol is an important public resource for understanding ICE programs and increasing accountability, especially in light of the actions taken by ICE lately, such as the separation of children and parents at the US border.”

 
The ICEPatrol database contains information and photos culled from the LinkedIn profiles, from interns to senior management, of 9,243 former and current ICE employees. The site is searchable by location, industry, current position, school attended and field of study. This places the men and women of ICE in a virtually defenseless position against vicious criminal gangs such as MS-13, Mexican drug lords and moslem terrorists. ICEPatrol and by extension, Wikileaks, exposes their families, homes and anyone they associate with, however casually, to extreme danger.

 
A hate group you have never heard of, the Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council (MACC) is “protesting” outside an ICE office building in Manhattan. They are blocking the loading dock through which ICE vans bring illegal aliens in and out of the building. MACC organizer Marisa Holmes apparently leads this effort. Someone should tell this Holmes individual that anarchy is just a college word for hate. On second thought, I bet she, he, her, zim, dimwit, hater, moron or whatever Holmes chosen pronoun is, probably already knows and embraces that.

 

A similar “protest” is well into its second week in the liberal workers paradise of Portland, Oregon. It is rapidly growing into a semi-permanent tent city of hundreds. These devoted haters of law and order are dedicated not only to frustrating ICE’s work but to completely abolishing the agency. Their official twitter account is titled “Abolish I.C.E. PDX”. Its banner photo reads “ICE = GESTAPO.” The Democrat socialist mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, endorses this display of hate and intolerance by ordering the police in his city to stand down while the domestic terrorists posing as peaceful protesters loot everything they can steal from the surrounding neighborhood.

 

Pam Bondi, the popular Attorney General of Florida and long-time target of the left, was verbally assaulted and bullied in a planned attack by a raging trio of leftists at a movie theater. The haters, unable to get a response from Bondi, turned on her boyfriend and did their best to provoke him into a physical altercation.

 
Shawn Christy, a Pennsylvania man who has threatened Donald Trump’s life, is on the run at this very minute. Who is Shawn Christy? In 2012 he was convicted of harassment against attorneys working for Sarah Palin. He is already on probation and is currently also wanted on aggravated assault charges. You most likely don’t know this because no mainstream media outlet wants to report on it. Let’s be honest, such knowledge might possibly generate some sympathy or concern about Trump and the media will not tolerate that. A more frightening thought, just how many more Christy’s are out there that we know nothing about?

 
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen chased out of a Mexican restaurant by militant liberal activists protesting the mythical “separation” of children from parents caught crossing the border illegally. A similar group of liberal protesters, led by the hate group CREDO Action, gathered outside of her Virginia townhouse blasting audio of crying immigrant children and chanting “No justice, no sleep.” “History will remember you,” shouted one protester, “You belong in the Hague! You’re a modern-day Nazi!” This hater will also be remembered in history, by his prison record in all probability.

 
Sarah Huckabee Sanders when seeking to dine at the Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia, was tossed out by liberal and hater extraordinaire Stephanie Wilkinson. Her excuse for such childish behavior, her establishment has “certain standards.” Apparently those standards extend to the point of following Sarah’s party to another restaurant and making a commotion there as well.

 
A rabid supporter of mob rule, for now at least, California Congresswoman Maxine Waters is encouraging more and mare radical protests against President Trump and anyone in his administration. She says she has “no sympathy” for any who serve in the administration and that the public should “turn on them” and “absolutely harass” White House officials as they go about every day activities. Rep. Waters told supporters that administration officials should be harangued at gas stations, restaurants, and department stores. “They know what they are doing is wrong,” she said.

 
The Hollywood Haters

 
Creepy has been Peter Fonda tweeted the following about 12-year-old Barron Trump, “WE SHOULD RIP BARRON TRUMP FROM HIS MOTHER’S ARMS AND PUT HIM IN A CAGE WITH PEDOPHILES.” Apparently not finished being sick and evil the moron went after federal agents and their children, “We only need to surround their schools and scare the shit out of them and worry the fuck out of the agents frm CBE ICE & REGULAR BORDER PATROL AGENTS. WE NEED TO SCARE THE FUCK OUT OF THEM! NEED TO MAKE THEIR CHILDREN WORRY NOW.” (The all caps are Fonda’s, not mine) Appropriately Trump and the first lady rebuked him publicly and the Secret Service paid him a visit. Fonda also bravely assaulted two women. One, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, who he addressed with the sexist slur “gash.” The second was Kirstjen Nielsen, DHS Secretary, who he wanted to see stripped naked and publicly whipped. The publicity seeking moron later issued a half hearted apology. Everyone knows he didn’t mean a word of it. Being a hollywood elitist, he doesn’t have to.

 
Washed up celebrities like Robert De Niro, perhaps seeking to relive the glory days, insist on vomiting their opinions all over the rest of us. Example, his obscene verbal tirade on live television during the Tony Awards: “I’m going to say one thing, Fuck Trump. It’s no longer ‘Down with Trump.’ It’s fuck Trump.” He is entitled to his opinion, however hateful. The frightening thing about the classless incident was that he got a standing ovation from the trained seal audience at Radio City Music Hall.

 
The sad thing is none of this is new. Many other celebrities have also crossed the line into evil.

 
Remember New York City’s distinguished Public Theater’s “Julius Caesar” a modern adaptation? A Trump-like figure is stabbed to death by a band of angry senators to the wild applause of its bloodthirsty liberal audience.

 
Madonna at the women’s march following the inauguration in January 2017, said she had “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House” on the day after Trump moved in. I suppose she feels the staff there is expendable because she doesn’t like Trump.

 
Taking a break from her doughnut fetish, Rosie O’Donnell in July 2017 stopped eating long enough to tweet a link to a game called “Push Trump Off A Cliff Again.”

 
The mentally ill Anthony Bourdain, a former CNN show host and celebrity chef who was once asked what he would serve at a peace summit between president Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un. “Hemlock,” was his to cute by half answer. I will give him credit for leading by example. None of his other hollywood pals are willing to do the same.

 
Larry Wilmore, the never funny former host of Comedy Central said, “I don’t want to give him any more oxygen. That’s not a euphemism, by the way. I mean it literally. Somebody get me the pillow they used to kill [Supreme Court Justice Antonin] Scalia and I’ll do it — I’ll do it!” I’ll give him credit for using a four syllable word but I have to wonder who taught it to him.

 
Marilyn Manson, looking like he had just consumed a healthy dose of Bourdain’s Hemlock, released a teaser video for his song, “Say10,” right after the 2016 election. In the video a Trump-like figure wearing a suit and a red tie lay decapitated on a concrete floor in a pool of blood.

 
Semi funny (once, a long time ago) and now just a bloated and angry racist, George Lopez back in the primary season of 2016 tweeted a cartoon image of former Mexican President Vincente Fox holding the decapitated head of Donald Trump with the caption “Make America Great Again.”

 
A no name, no talent musician called Moby produced a 2017 video of a Transformer-like Trump morphing into a swastika-dollar sign combination and wreaking havoc on a city before meeting a fiery, explosive death.

 
A Snoop Dogg 2017 music video portrayed Trump as a clown. At the end of the video, the talent challenged rapper points a gun at the Trump figure and shoots. A red flag that read “Bang!” pops out of the guns barrel.

 
Kathy Griffin proudly defended holding up photos of a fake bloody, decapitated Trump head as art. I’ll accept that one when she fully converts to islam. Lets be honest, the veil suits her.

 
Johnny Depp, at the U.K.’s 2017 Glastonbury music and arts festival stated bravely, “I think Trump needs help.” Desperate to appear somewhat manly he added, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”

 
This is only a sampling but I’m sure you get the picture. In years past these sick displays would have spelled the end of a career. There’s no penalty anymore.

 
The Media

 
Both MSNBC’s Joy Reid and CBS’s Scott Pelley, the network’s Evening News anchor, have said publicly and often, although carefully couched in not so many words, that Rep. Steve Scalise had it coming when a rabid Bernie Sanders supporter and volunteer shot him as he and his GOP colleagues practiced for a yearly baseball game between congressional Republicans and Democrats. Pelly went so far as to claim that Rep. Scalise’s injuries were “foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted.” So, apparently Pelly and his numerous brethren know what comes of the flames of hate they fan so diligently and are apparently just fine with it.

 
In an unwritten but strictly enforced rule that has gone nationwide over the last few years the media has refused to list the race of criminals in their reporting, unless said criminal is a white male. Illegal aliens hit and run, rape, rob and murder but the media will never once disclose the criminals race or immigration status. Black gangs roam the streets, subways and parks of numerous major cities for “beat whitey night” or the “knock put game” and the media simply identifies the criminals as “teens”, if they bother to report on the crime at all. MS13 murderers are called Dreamers and treated like poor little children.

 
Over the last few years, law-breaking has evolved to no longer carry consequences for the preferred classes. Democrat politicians at all levels of government, militant homersexuals, gang members of the correct skin colors, deep state bureaucrats, ideologically correct college professors/administrators, professional leftists, anarchists and race baiters and their fellow travelers and illegal aliens have little to fear from the law. In cities across America, organized lawlessness is spreading like the cancer it is but this news is virtually ignored and blacked out by the mainstream media.

 
In a June 25, 2018 article by David Prentice “A High-Stakes Game of Get Trump Poker” he summarizes the current state of the “left” perfectly.

“Oh, come now. We just need to reach across the aisle to compromise with these (um, er) friends! That’s the plaintive cry of the infamous RINO class. The weary whine of the Vichy Republicans. The pathetic wail of the Stockholm Syndrome GOP.
The party of JFK is gone, baby, gone. There is not even a hint of a JFK or Hubert Humphrey now. Not the slightest tempering of a Scoop Jackson. Nor an iota of the fiery pro-American Truman. They’ve all gone hard left.
They have new goals. Hate the founding of America. Freedom and liberty are just no good anymore.
Destroy the “evils” of a free market economy. Replace it with socialism.
Balkanize a racial divide. Hate whites; get as many whites to be self-loathing as possible. Keep blacks and Hispanics on the Democrat plantation. Never integrate.
Reinvent biological sex. Confuse an entire generation. Make sex become anything they want it to be at the time, but mainly use it to bludgeon white males or conservatives of any race or sex. Just because they deserve it. Because they are all toxic.
Replace the voting base of America with illegal aliens who can be manipulated more easily by emotional appeals for their votes. Power forever (in their minds).
Destroy the ability to debate the ideas of the left. Destroy anyone who is effective in countering the left’s narratives. And be violent. Make it appear criminal to have a differing viewpoint, or work for anyone other than the left.”

 
The left is doing their level best to motivate their militant base at all levels. Not all liberals are militant leftists but the silence from the reasonable liberals is deafening compared to the noise their militant brothers now running the democratic party, hollywood, academia and the media are making. The hateful, fiery rhetoric coming from the “leaders” of the left reaches deep into the mentally unstable and legitimizes their fantasies of “making a difference” because “something must be done.”

 

These are the people that wake up one morning intent on killing Republicans, targeting ICE employees, law enforcement officers and political figures not because of anything these people have necessarily said or done, but because Democratic leaders from The Kenyan little Barry, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders, Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown, Maxine Waters and a host of others have said that every Republican policy, from healthcare to trade to climate change to immigration, will kill people or are Nazi-inspired. The delusion is further reinforced by media and hollywood hate mongers parroting the liberal, leftist, communist propaganda issuing from the DNC. The hate and vitriol coming from these professional haters inspire liberal leftist goons and loons to “save mankind.”

 

The democratic party is at war with America. The media industrial complex is at war with America. Hollywood is at war with America. The educational complex is at war with America. Their supporters, voters and funders are at war with America.

 

My grandfather always said there was no point in ignoring the obvious. Outside of Trump and a few American patriots who stand with him, the republican party has become the party of surrender. We can sit on the sidelines and watch the insane America haters finish destroying America, hoping that we are the last to fall or we can stand together against them and preserve the greatest, most productive and beneficial form of government in the planets history. I know where I stand, do you?

Rational Discrimination

Discrimination is one of the undisputed bad words of today’s “polite”, liberal, society. When applied unjustly I agree, discrimination is very bad. I’m sure the liberals outrage in this regard is purely for political gain as leftists are some of the biggest discriminators on the planet. It is as if they see their discrimination as both normal and healthy while anyone they disagree with is the focus of evil in the modern world. (Actually I am the focus of evil in the modern world but since I’ve entered the witness protection program I can’t claim my title anymore)

You see, liberals discriminate all the time. Sometimes they discriminate in ways regular working folks have never even contemplated. White privilege anyone? Trees on a golf course? In that respect liberals are insanely creative. Their love affair with discrimination is especially evident on college campus’s around the country. College liberals routinely express their ability to discriminate via often unruly and sometimes violent protests. These protests frequently appear when said liberals are presented with the opportunity to ignore a speaker they disagree with. The student overturning cars (apparently a nose ring grants you unusual superpowers) and burning other peoples things undoubtedly believes he, she, heshe or non binary xyzwtf, is practicing a healthy, rational discrimination. What other option could possibly be available if an Ann Coulter or Ben Shapiro is going to actually show up on your campus safe space? The misbehaving student sees himself as a social justice warrior extraordinaire. The unbiased observer sees their actions for the riotous, intolerant temper tantrums that they are.

On the other hand, as Walter E Williams and Thomas Sowell (Both brave, real men who have actually lived through real, sometimes brutal discrimination) have pointed out many times, rational discrimination is not only sensible but acceptable. To the intellectually curious the very concept of Rational Discrimination begs our curiosity. Or, as the college kids would ask the person sitting next to them by text message, WTF!? Angry shoulder shrug emoji.

When my sister in law stopped buying a certain brand of deodorant because the company she had used for years sold out to a huge corporate conglomerate, she was practicing rational discrimination. No cars were burned, no foul language was needed. She didn’t parade around with a goofy hand made sign chanting silly slogans. (Hell no, smell my BO!) No demands that everyone follow her “brave” example. She simply stopped buying their product. This is imminently reasonable behavior. Viola! Rational discrimination in action. By the way, my sister in law is as liberal as they come. (It seems not all liberals have purple hair and middle aged college professors in their bedroom)

If one thinks about it, conservatives don’t practice rational discrimination nearly enough. They (I say they because I’m an old fashioned curmudgeon who actually follows through on my promise to not buy, visit or support some things) to often seem to think that withholding their dollars from an offending company is unfair, mean or, heaven forbid, discriminatory! Even worse, it would deny them something they really, really want, like a $10 cup of coffee in a paper cup. (By the way, curmudgeon is our college word of the day, there will be a test)

So now we know that rational discrimination can be difficult for some of us. As my grandfather used to tell me, “Nothing good comes easy.” Having survived the great depression and WW II he would know.

The fact is everyone discriminates every day. Every time you make your own coffee instead of buying it on the way to work you have discriminated. When you choose a burger over pizza for lunch you have discriminated. If you hate broccoli you are discriminating against one green vegetable over other green vegetables. When you hire one employee over another employee you have discriminated one set of skills over another. When you buy a Chevy instead of a Mazda you have discriminated. The fact is everyone discriminates every day in dozens of ways. And you thought discrimination was a racial thing.

Sadly though, it still sometimes is. Thankfully, despite the medias desperate attempts to resurrect it, the era of Jim Crow, KKK, out and out racists is long gone. Sure there are the occasional throwbacks but they are far and away the exception, not the rule. I reasonably suspect there are far more racists on the left than on the right. (Nation of islam, NAACP, Congressional Black Caucus, BET etc, etc) Even the whole “unconscious” racism being shoved down the throats of Seattle’s landlords is nothing more than a liberal construct designed to push an agenda.

Honestly, there are no bigger racists than liberals. The first thing any liberal cares about is skin color. Although that is quickly being replaced by perceived sexual gender or orientation. Soon the 3% of LGBTQXYZ will politically overwhelm the 13% of black Americans. For some unknown reason the “black “ community remains silent as they are being shoved into the political wilderness by people who cannot figure out which bathroom to use, but that is another article. Perhaps the black community should practice some rational discrimination.

It is liberals who demand that racial equality be forced across the board. Black Americans are 13% of the population so they must be 13% of your police force, fire department, cast of every movie, employees, unions, teachers etc ad nauseam. Until they demand that blacks only make up 13% of the NFL and NBA I can’t really take them seriously and neither should you. The race hustlers take themselves very seriously though and with a complicit media, they have the perceived power to force changes that would never survive the ballot box. I’m not really sure how one can rationally discriminate against a police or fire department that lowers it’s admission standards until it can meet the 13% threshold but that doesn’t mean they can’t be called to account for it. Perhaps some rational discrimination directed towards the local elected officials and so called news media would be helpful.

Which reminds me, the NFL got a healthy dose of rational discrimination last year. We will see if they learned anything soon. Practicing irrational indulgence, the league not only renewed the commissioners contract but padded it beyond belief. I’m going to guess the league learned nothing.

Want to join me in some Rational Discrimination this season? I will be outside with my family, friends, music, sunshine and BBQ. It will be great.

2017 Year In Review Part Two – Illegal Immigration

There are few issues as “hot button” as immigration. As a first generation American I understand that because immigration to me is incredibly important. The way it is portrayed in today’s insanely biased so called main stream media, there are only two sides to the immigration debate, the loving, tolerant and understanding open borders supporters and the evil, hateful wall builders. These are of course caricatures but caricatures are simple to explain and easy to understand, thus they are used.

When most people think of immigration it tends to be in one of two ways. The first view, heavily pushed by the media and indoctrinated in the public school system, is that of the hard working, play by the rules (except for the whole illegal entry thing which is dutifully ignored), family oriented, taxpaying immigrant seeking only a better life for him his kind, cookie baking wife and ever tolerant, understanding and racially profiled kids. The second view of immigration, no less forced, is that of a criminal underclass seeking the complete overthrow of our government. The truth, as always, lies somewhere in between.

Historically speaking, legal immigration has been a good thing for America. It was certainly a good thing for me and I am truly grateful for the opportunities being born in America has afforded me. That being said I have to point out a few realities about immigration that the “open borders” people either don’t know or refuse to concede to.

First, no one has the “right” to immigrate here.

Second, Constitutional rights only apply to American citizens.

Third, the fact that you were able to break into America does not entitle you to anything.

Fourth, there is no such thing as an “anchor” baby.

Fifth, your entire family, out to 27 generations, is not entitled to follow you here.

Sixth, America has not just the right but the duty to determine who gets to immigrate here.

Seventh, none of the above is intolerant or hateful.

A final point. Illegal immigration involves so much more than the media will tell you about. There are considerations far beyond simply how many and from where the people we let into America come from.

Using the last few of years as a reference point lets contemplate some obvious and not so obvious consequences of unchecked illegal immigration.

We begin with crime.

In 1980 federal and state prisons housed fewer than 9,000 criminal aliens. The number today hovers around 55,000, accounting for more than twenty-five percent of all prisoners in federal prisons. There are an additional approximately 297,000 criminal aliens incarcerated in state and local prisons.

2017
Consider these shocking numbers from just couple of years ago. In Florida illegal aliens account for 40% of all murder convictions, in New York 34% and in Arizona, a state brutalized by the Kenyans administration and his media minions for simply seeking to enforce federal immigration law, 17.8%.

Put another way, during that time frame illegal aliens accounted for 38% of all murder convictions in Arizona, California, Florida, New York and Texas combined. In body count numbers that’s 7,085 victims of illegal immigration. Put yet another way, that’s 7,085 people who did not have to die. As an aside, the illegal alien population in those states is only 5.6% (US Census data) of the states population. Little has changed over the last couple of years.

It’s not much better in other states. You simply do not know about these kinds of things because the media has engaged in a complete and total black out of the term illegal alien when reporting on crime.

The long going determination by the left to hide the astounding levels of criminality by illegal aliens extends even to state and local governments. In 2006, Colorado a state rapidly sinking into liberal lunacy, passed a law requiring the state Attorney General to determine the costs of incarcerating illegal aliens and bill the federal government for reimbursement. The cost via the number of incarcerated illegal aliens was so high that the state AG only sent the government a bill for half the real cost. Torn between trying to be semi fiscally responsible and sheltering the narrative about illegal immigration, the state decided to protect the criminals. Makes you feel warm and fuzzy all over don’t it?

Next, lets consider Money.

According to Mexico’s Central Bank (Banxico), 2017 was a record-breaking year for receiving remittances by Mexicans abroad. In the first eleven months of 2017, Mexicans sent home $26,167,00,000. This follows another record setting year in 2016 when $24.1 billion left the American economy. To put this in context, Mexico’s second largest source of income in 2017 was the export of oil for $18.5 billion. While it is tragic that Mexicans send so much money home to fund a corrupt, abusive and failing government, the thing that should concern Americans the most is the fact that these dollars can not be used to help our own citizens or grow our own economy. As the pervert Clinton would likely have said, “How many poor children could $26 billion feed?”

To rub some salt into the wound consider that taxpayers at the federal, state and local levels payed out nearly $134.9 billion to cover the costs incurred by 12.5 million illegal aliens and roughly 4.2 million citizen children of illegal aliens. In round figures approximately $8,075 per illegal alien family member. The math leads to a total of around $115,894,597,664. In 2013 the total was $113 billion. You shouldn’t have to be a noble laureate in math to realize this is an unsustainable upwards trajectory. (Cloward Piven anyone?)

To those who would say, but sailor, they pay more in taxes than that. I would ask you to simply learn the truth or stop lying. Here are the numbers. Illegal aliens payed in federally $22,191,097,700. Subtract what they received just in tax credits alone $6,743,200,000 and that leaves a balance of $15,447,897,700. Well, at least they are paying something, right? Wrong, unless you’re using common core math. The combined total of state and local government general expenditures on illegal aliens is estimated at $18,571,428,571 billion. So much for that argument.

What you don’t know about Healthcare.

Incredibly, thanks to yet another main stream media blackout, no one even knows about the healthcare disasters being forced on America to satisfy some demented idea of “tolerance.”

An example of what we could be looking at was recently provided by Germany. The Germans equivalent of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is The Robert Koch Institute (RKI). RKI is responsible for monitoring infectious diseases and managing outbreaks. RKI is reporting significant increases in communicable diseases across Germany. Its annual report on “Infectious Disease Epidemiology in Germany states, “the institute concluded that recent increases in dengue fever, Hantavirus, hemorrhagic fever, malaria, tuberculosis and other communicable diseases are directly attributable to the migrant stream currently pouring into Germany.”

These infections, rare in Europe for decades, pose a significant threat to the general health and welfare of native Germans. While Germany has a first class healthcare system that should be able to successfully handle the outbreak of a single disease, even a serious one, the sheer number of refugees and the diversity of infectious diseases they appear to be spreading is straining the German public health infrastructure to its limits.

The U.S. experienced a mass migration event similar to the German refugee crisis under the Obama administration. The arrival of massive numbers of illegal aliens was accompanied by significant increases in Dengue Fever, Tuberculosis and Swine Flu. Fortunately these outbreaks were quickly brought under control. In 2014, a wave of unaccompanied alien children appear to have been the source of the deadly outbreak of the EV-D68 Enterovirus that quickly began spread throughout the western states. Feeling all warm and fuzzy yet? Better get checked out.

Consider some recent health statistics in light of what you have now learned.

Between 2010 and 2014 the Minnesota Department of Health reported two hundred and ninety-six refugees were diagnosed with active tuberculosis. It is illustrative to point out that seventy-one of those cases were diagnosed within one year of their arrival while the remaining 225 were diagnosed in the following year. The number of active TB cases reported among refugees showing up in Minnesota is ten times higher than reported in any of the fourteen other states that have released refugee TB data to the public. See a pattern?

Costing an average of $17,000 for each case of successfully treated active TB Minnesota taxpayers coughed up roughly $5 million to treat the 296 cases of active TB diagnosed among refugees between 2010 and 2014. It broke down this way. $3 million for the 161 Somali refugees diagnosed with active TB, and an additional $2 million to treat the 132 refugees diagnosed with active TB who were not born in Somalia.

Sadly Minnesota is not alone. Between 2014 and 2015 the following states reported these numbers.

Wisconsin, 27, Nebraska & Louisiana, 21, Michigan, 19, Vermont, 17, Colorado, 16, Florida & Ohio 11, Kentucky, 9, Idaho, 7, Indiana & N. Dakota, 4 and California, 3.

As the numbers of infections and diseases continue to grow more and more politically correct state and federal administration types are contributing to the media blackout by making these kinds of numbers more and more difficult to obtain.

Corruption and the abandonment of reason.

Then there is the culture of corruption fostered by those SJW’s whose sole mission is the fundamental transformation of America.

A stunning video, released by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, shows an operative going undercover to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and being told that if you’re from Syria and used a faked passport to get into the United States, you can still get immigration services.

AFDI operative Laura Loomer went to a USCIS office “and told an official that she had met a family of illegal immigrants from Syria and wanted to make sure they got immigration services.”

She informed the official the family was afraid to come into the office because, “they don’t have documents because they came here illegally” using fake passports.

In the video the USCIS official didn’t even hesitate. There are cases, he said, “we waive sometimes the passport, because they are unable to provide that documentation.” The official continued, the real name really didn’t matter either, “We are going to use the name on the passport as AKA, ‘also known as.’”

The video further explained that the government employee was simply, “explaining the law as it stands.” In other words, any terrorist or career criminal can walk freely into America with the unwavering support of liberal social justice warriors in government and congress.

It gets even worse. The IRS Inspector Generals Office reported that the tax-collection agency knows that more than one million illegal immigrants have used stolen Social Security numbers of citizens to file fraudulent tax returns, collecting billions of dollars in fraudulent refunds. Irritatingly, the IRS makes no serious effort to get those stolen dollars back. Not only that but the IRS has done virtually nothing to stop the practice. It hasn’t even notified a meaningful percentage of those Americans victimized by identity fraud that they have been victimized. The IRS has known this issue for at least the last five years. A half-hearted test program designed to attack the problem was quietly scrapped because it had virtually no effect.

According to Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va., there’s really only one explanation for this, the IRS ignoring this problem. Brat believes the government ignoring one of its fundamental responsibilities. He explained,

Koskinen was in front of us, and I asked him, ‘If you know that you have illegal aliens and they’re asking for tax refunds or asking for any tax status, would you do anything about it?’ He said no. I was stunned,” Brat said. Koskinen made the same assertion in his Senate testimony. “When he says it’s not my job to report illegal, much less unethical behavior, we’ve got a problem,” Brat added.

Part of that problem is that Koskinen, and liberals like him, are not yet doing ten to twenty at the nearest federal penitentiary.

Finally, the lie of DACA.

Lets be honest, DACA is a blatantly unconstitutional, temporary amnesty program. It’s sole function is to reward underachievers and criminals. If a few good people slip through the cracks so be it.

The vast majority of DACA recipients are not in fact children, averaging between 25-30 years of age who are fully conversant with both the language and culture of their home country.

Neither are they diligent college students. DACA recipients college graduation rates are below the national average. This is despite being given in state tuition rates in far to many states and preference over American citizens in many other areas.

Nor are they service oriented. Less that 1% of DACA recipients serve in America’s military.

Sadly, for many DACA recipients their idea of self sufficiency is to attach themselves to the welfare system then complain about how little they are getting.

Most egregious of all is that virtually anyone can claim DACA status. Successful applicants can have up to three misdemeanors. These can range from graffiti-spraying to drunk driving to wife-beating to gun violations. In other words things that would land you or me in jail are ignored so illegal aliens can access your wallet through federal, state and local programs.

Now don’t that just make you feel all warm and fuzzy all over? Don’t you just feel all social justice warrior like knowing how badly you and your country are being beaten up to make some spoiled, ill educated liberals feel good about themselves?

As the pervert Clinton is alleged to have said once, “better put some ice on that.”

2017 The Year in Review Part 1: Democrats And Blood In The Streets

I believe that in a very short time we will look back at 2017 and understand it to be the extremely pivotal year that, in ways that many may have not noticed, it really was.

One of the most tragic and destructive legacies of the Kenyans reign over America has been the institutionalization and normalization of lawlessness at nearly every level of society. From the Nation of Islam to The New Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter and even Antifa, liberals have actively and openly stoked the flames of racial hatred and division and, with the exception of the election of Trump, suffered not the slightest consequence of importance. Under the Kenyans tutelage even thoughts were deemed criminal if they did not comport to the supreme leaders ideology.

It has become blindingly obvious to anyone willing to look that the DOJ, FBI, CIA, IRS, INS and a host of other federal agencies have been turned against conservative Americans. One can only hope that Trump is able to restore a sense of law and order to a deeply weaponized American government.

Among many things that became clearly apparent in 2017 was the absolute bloody history of the democratic party. After some fifty years spent successfully hiding their Jim Crow legacy behind the bodies of its victims, the carnage wrought by the policies of the party of the “little guy” are becoming to massive to conceal any longer. Only the most mind numbed liberal can be satisfied that Kate Stienlie’s killer got off with time served, that the Massachusetts Supreme Court ruled that it is fine for black males to run from cops, that the “knock out” game was so very carefully ignored by everyone but it’s victims or that the Portland, Oregon Police Department has decided to stop identifying gang members and purge the gang member database it has developed over the last two decades to appear non racist. Similar symptoms of liberal idiocy, are appearing throughout America and are praised by liberals as good and decent things. Make no mistake, liberals will continue to deny the painfully obvious and the media will maintain its news blackout of the carnage even as the number of bodies and victims is beginning to reach a critical mass that even they can no longer conceal.

In 2016, the latest figures I was able to find, the FBI reported there were 1.2 million violent crimes committed in America. This represents a 4.1% increase over 2015. It is the second year in a row violent crimes have risen. To put some perspective on this the current crime level represents 386 violent crimes for every 1000 people.

The good news, if you can call it that, is that much of the continuing spike in violent crime comes from a relatively few and, almost exclusively democrat led and managed, cities. In order, here are the top ten offenders.

Detroit, Michigan: 2,047 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 303 murders.
St. Louis, Missouri: 1,913 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 188 murders.
Memphis, Tennessee: 1,820 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 196 murders.
Baltimore, Maryland: 1,780 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 318 murders.
Rockford, Illinois: 1,659 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 26 murders.
Kansas City, Missouri: 1,655 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 129 murders.
Cleveland, Ohio: 1,631 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 135 murders.
Milwaukee, Wisconsin: 1,533 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 141 murders.
Little Rock, Arkansas: 1,531 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 42 murders.
Oakland, California: 1,426 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 85 murders.

I bet you were surprised that Chicago wasn’t on the list. I wouldn’t take much comfort from that fact. In 2015, Chicago reported 478 homicides, leading all other American cities. In Chicago this year people are still getting shot in insanely high numbers. By the middle of October, 2017, 1,000 more people were shot than at the same time last year. Of the 3,500 shooting victims this year so far nearly 600 died. In Chicago the murder rate tends to be concentrated in a few areas. Two neighborhoods, Burnside and Fuller Park, have homicide rates of more than 100 per 100,000 residents. Similarly, 45 percent of shootings in St. Louis this year have been clustered in just eight neighborhoods. New Orleans reports a similar finding.

Consider these trends as an ancillary to the Ferguson Effect and another of the Kenyan’s legacies, the war on cops. In many large cities cops are now extremely hesitant, and not without good reason, to engage in proactive policing. Far to often they are harassed or assaulted by bystanders when exercising their duties. Police have even been openly targeted for assassination on multiple occasions. The criminals know that liberal city and/or county prosecutors, state administrations, a corrupt judiciary and politically correct press will spend more effort “understanding” and “commiserating” with them as “victims” of racism or white privilege, than prosecuting them for actual crimes committed.

There are few places where the Ferguson Effect is more pronounced than in New York City. The self avowed communist mayor there has abandoned the policies that made NYC once one of the safest large cities in America. The mayor, his administration, a complicit judiciary and media as well as the thugs, gangs and organized criminal enterprises operating in and around the city have either bought hook, line and sinker the lie that cops are gunning down black men at will, are all closet racists or have decided to use these false narratives to their advantage. The fact that the vast majority of murdered blacks are killed by blacks is not only well known but decisively and studiously ignored by liberal leaders and their media and judicial accomplices. Simply observing that undeniable fact causes one to be labeled a racist.

This evil strategy, blaming fictional institutional racism for every ill, real or perceived, experienced by black people has been an article of faith to liberals for the last couple of decades. The newly invented “white privilege” was created to disguise the highly developed sense of black (and to a slightly lesser degree, hispanic and moslem) self entitlement created and nurtured by liberals. Consider the following cities as prime examples of where liberal policies on not just crime but poverty have been running unchecked for a very long time.

Baltimore. Democrat mayors with 18,000 consecutive days in charge. Poverty rate: 23.6%.

Chicago. Democrat mayors with 30,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate 24.7%.

Detroit. Democrat mayors with 30,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate: 39.3%.

Philadelphia. Democrat mayors with 20,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate 31.4%.

St. Louis. Democrat mayors with 15,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate: 28.5%.

I can hear all you statisticians saying correlation does not always equal causation. After all, everyone who ate a carrot a hundred and fifty years ago died. True, but this is just a tiny sample from a much larger pool of dramatically similar evidence. Sometimes correlation does equal causation.

As if there are not enough criminals in America liberals insist on importing as many more as fast as they can. I understand that not every “refugee” or illegal alien is a “criminal” but honesty requires me to acknowledge that a high percentage of them are and often of the most heinous type. By definition anyone here illegally is already a criminal and I can come up with no sane reason to accept and reward (cash welfare, medical, housing, food stamps, child tax credit, drivers licenses, in state college tuition etc) people who have chosen to violate the law. One cannot help but note that, in the importation of islamic “refugees” the vast majority (up to 90% depending on which period you evaluate) are males age 17-45. If you are wondering why this could be important consider that I have just given you the demographic of every standing army on the planet.
As a first generation American I am certainly not against legal immigration. However, I am against importing by the millions people who adamantly and sometimes violently, refuse to assimilate. These are the “immigrants” or “refugees” whose main function seems to be converting the most successful, inventive, tolerant, prosperous and freest country in the history of mankind into the hell hole they “fled”.
Liberals accept the importing of hundreds of thousands of moslems without question. They do so knowing full well that moslems generally refuse to assimilate and they will attempt to force their religion on everyone by threat, intimidation, force and lawfare. As moslems, many will rape, kill and plunder because their religion allows it (in the koran I read these actions are demanded from a devout moslem as part of his religious duties to further the influence of islam) and the moslems know the liberals will cover for them.
It is a sad fact that for the last several years virtually every “major” media outlet has refused to list the ethnicity/immigration status of criminals unless they are white males. They have taken this strategy to the absurd extreme of labeling, for example, a Mexican illegal alien as white if he has or uses an anglo sounding name. This strategy has been used to effectively cover up what amounts to a rape epidemic by so called “immigrants” of, as far as I can tell, unparalleled proportions in American history. The main perpetrators seem to come from south of the border countries, African countries and islamic countries.
The average moslem “refugee” and average illegal alien share some common attributes highly valued by liberals. Both tend to have less than a high school education, virtually no marketable skills, little to no understanding of or ability or even desire to use the English language, commit a wide variety of crimes at a much higher rate that native born citizens and are heavily welfare dependent. They each demand special accommodations at every turn. Subtract the language component and you have the demographic of your average street thug. Hey, no worries. Liberals believe that once the America so many of us grew up in has been destroyed by these “immigrants” they can rebuild it correctly.
Until then as long as the illegal aliens/refugees vote democratic and work cheaply for the Chamber of Commerce no one in government will do anything substantive to solve the problem. Remember dear reader you and I, like Kate Stienle, are a sacrifice liberals are willing to make.
