Robert Welch Was NOT George Lincoln Rockwell!*

“I am not now nor have I ever been a member of the Communist Party John Birch Society, “concealed” or otherwise. Moreover, I have never been a supporter of that party society.” – Guffaw

Funny, growing up in a white-bread liberal college town as I did, I heard mostly that Robert Welch (of the Welch Candy Company(Sugar Babies) and the John Birch Society) was nothing more than an ignorant, fascistic, fear-monger, as were the members of his society.

Then I listened to the words in the video above…

It appears as though he has been characterized erroneously.

He was actually a libertarian (of some variety)!

(I’m NOT saying I believe in everything the man stood for, and I am NOT a Bircher, but it appears character assassination of non-liberal individuals has been going on for generations!)

I’m guessing none of the members of the current administration (or their parents) were present in the audience to hear Mr. Welch speak.  Unless, of course, they were outside agitators community organizers bent on disrupting the proceedings…

(not unlike the guy on the right)

RACISM

racistMy Daily Kona recently republished The 20 Rules of Racism, as viewed from the Right and the Left.

As they are politically incorrect, I’m only cherry-picking (‘borrowing’, i.e. thievery) a couple for you to enjoy.  You’ll have to visit My Daily Kona to get all the wisdom contained therein!

From the right:

5. There have been two instances in recent history where the concept of “honorary white” held sway. One was in apartheid South Africa where, for example, Japanese were considered “honorary white.” The other was when, in relation to the Trayvon Martin shooting, the American mainstream media made Hispanic George Zimmerman an “honorary white.” This is not entirely coincidence since (see Rule 18) the very liberal American media is as racist in their way as ever the Afrikaner Broederbond was in its heyday..

9. Speaking of slavery, the bulk of slave raiding and trading in Africa was black, usually Islamic black (see Rule 16, below), on black. The Arabic word for black and slave is the same, “Abd.” And the first registered slave owner in Virginia was black. Pointing this out to liberals, white and black, is always fun.

The Left’s 20 Rules of Racism:

6. If you’re mainstream American culture, and don’t hate that culture, you’re a racist.

10. If you don’t take personal responsibility for all the evils of slavery, you’re a racist. This is true even if you only arrived from Poland last week.

Go to the link and read them all.  You know you want to…

(and, of course, in doing so you are RACIST!)

Just An Observation

The United States seems hell-bent on making all nationalities resident here inclusive – even those who aren’t here legally and those who fail to assimilate into American culture.

And those who refuse to learn or use English.

My ancestors came here legally from Germany (and Ireland – kinda already speaking English!). learned it and assimilated.  There were proud Americans.

Witness below the nation/nation-state/Russian satellite of The Ukraine:

Nationalism unites, and multi-culti ‘diversity’ divides. So does culture and language.

- Paying attention yet America? Liking how that whole ‘diversty’ joke is working for you?

Belgians have the whole Flemish vs. Walloon thing.

- I don’t know if this is WHY Brussels is so dysfunctional, but when all else fails it never hurts to go with “blame the French.”

Many of us understand what happened in the former Yugoslavia. The linguistic divide between Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian, Slovene, and Macedonian (plus a few more languages) made the ‘country’ less functional than their infamous car, the Yugo. (map and text courtesy of Theo Spark)

Is anyone in our State Department listening?  If not, press one for ENGLISH.

Gun Control (by the cops)

Kevin Baker brings us the news…

News out of L.A. last week:

Shooting during Dorner stakeout violated policy, panel rules

Eight Los Angeles police officers who opened fire on two women delivering newspapers in a pickup truck during the hunt for Christopher Dorner violated the LAPD’s policy on using deadly force, the department’s oversight body found Tuesday.

In making its ruling, the Police Commission followed the recommendation of LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, who faulted the officers for jumping to the conclusion that Dorner was in the truck. Beck said the officers compounded their mistake by shooting in one another’s direction with an unrestrained barrage of gunfire.

Reports made public Tuesday offered new details of the hours that led up to the shooting and how it erupted into a wild, one-sided firefight in which the officers fired shotguns and handguns more than 100 times. One woman was shot twice in the back; her daughter received superficial wounds.

A panel of high-ranking police officials that reviewed the shooting urged Beck to clear the officers of wrongdoing, according to several sources who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the case.

Violated policy. POLICY. How about LAW? Common sense? Decency?

So, thirty days without donuts, or do they get a six-week paid vacation (suspension with pay)?

For those who don’t remember, L.A.P.D. has a history of being full of corrupt, mob-ridden, political creatures.  Chief Parker decided to take the Hollywood approach, and use P.R. to shine the agencies image.  TV shows like Dragnet and Adam-12 were the result.

All this while the Hat Squad was operating behind the scenes.

For Hollywood’s take on this, go watch Mullholland Falls and L.A. Confidential.

Rollo Tomasi, indeed!

FINALLY! Some Good Legal Stuff!

AZ: State Preemption Law to Get Some Teeth

While specifically aimed at Tucson’s gun ordinances, it would apply statewide:

HB 2517, approved Thursday by the House Judiciary Committee, would change all that.

It says any individual or organization whose membership is “adversely affected” by a law they believe is illegal can sue. Challengers who win are entitled to legal fees and damages up to $100,000.

The legislation also says the court can assess a civil penalty of up to $500,000 against any elected or appointed government official if a judge determines the violation of state pre-emption laws was “knowing and willful.”

And to make sure that resonates with city officials, HB 2517 forbids the city from reimbursing the council member or employee for that penalty. It even says the official has to bear his or her own legal fees.

Of course, while the committee has passed it, there’s still a long road to travel before the Governor signs it into law.

AND…

9th Circuit Affirms Right to Carry Guns in California

From WaPo:

The Ninth Circuit’s decision in Peruta v. San Diego, released minutes ago, affirms the right of law-abiding citizens to carry handguns for lawful protection in public.

California law has a process for applying for a permit to carry a handgun for protection in public, with requirements for safety training, a background check, and so on. These requirements were not challenged. The statute also requires that the applicant have “good cause,” which was interpreted by San Diego County to mean that the applicant is faced with current specific threats. (Not all California counties have this narrow interpretation.) The Ninth Circuit, in a 2-1 opinion written by Judge O’Scannlain, ruled that Peruta was entitled to Summary Judgement, because the “good cause” provision violates the Second Amendment.

More here and here.

This certainly has ramifications for gun holders in “may issue” states such as NY and NJ.  (BOTH STORIES stolen courtesy of Alphecca)

With regard to both stories, it’s about f’n time!

When A Politician Becomes An Elder Statesman

(Stolen from Pitsnipe Gripes…)

The Story Of What Happens When A Politician Dies..

While walking down the street one day a US senator is tragically hit by a truck and dies.His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.
“Welcome to heaven,” says St. Peter. “Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we’re not sure what to do with you.”
“No problem, just let me in,” says the man.
“Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we’ll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.”
“Really, I’ve made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,” says the senator.
“I’m sorry, but we have our rules.”
And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.
Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.
They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and champagne.
Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that before he realizes it, it is time to go.
Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises…
The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St. Peter
is waiting for him.
“Now it’s time to visit heaven.”
So, 24 hours pass with the senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.
“Well, then, you’ve spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity.”
The senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: “Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell.”
So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.
Now the doors of the elevator open and he’s in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage.
He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above.
The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulder. “I don’t understand,” stammers the senator. “Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there’s just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?”
The devil looks at him, smiles and says,
“Yesterday we were campaigning…… Today you voted.”

Famous DOESN’T Mean Knowledgable in Other Areas…

Mostly Cajun, All American and Opinionated reminded us of this, with this almanac entry:

Today in History – January 23

1941 – Charles Lindbergh testifies before the U.S. Congress and recommends that the United States negotiate a neutrality pact with Adolf Hitler.  Just because you’re famous for being good at one thing doesn’t mean you’re smart about everything…

Are you listening Bill Maher, Susan Sarandon, Sean Penn, Danny Glover, Steven Spielberg, Morgan Freeman, George Clooney, Will Smith, Oprah Winfrey et al.

YES, they have a right to an opinion!

Even if it’s wrong, or misinformed.

And, don’t get me wrong.  Just because I like someone’s film or stage performance (or think they’re hot or cool) doesn’t mean I think their opinion about politics or restriction of MY RIGHTS holds water!

Nothing To See Here – Move Along!

REMEMBER the list of JFK assassination witnesses that came out in 1973, with the (skewed) statistical analysis stating the odds of all of them having died ‘accidentally’ within three years of the assassination were one hundred thousand trillion to one?

But they did?

Of course, many of those ‘witnesses’ were minions of mob or CIA functionaries, or at least persons who lived in the sphere of poverty and organized crime.  How did the statistics of their deaths compare with an equal number of middle-class, white bread Americans of the same age?

No one knows.  I don’t think anyone’s ever done such a study.

Now, let’s got to a list of middle-class and upper middle class Americans, mostly White, who were movers and shakers (or at least associated with) of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Is this list accurate, inaccurate or totally false?

Well the list of people is accurate as they are definitely all dead and they were somehow related to the Clinton’s.

Beyond that, however, it is impossible for me to say anything else for sure!

1- James McDougal – Convicted Whitewater partner of the Clintons who
died of an apparent heart attack, while in solitary confinement. He was a key witness in Ken Starr’s investigation.

2 – Mary Mahoney – A former White House intern was murdered July 1997
at a Starbucks Coffee Shop in Georgetown (Washington, D. C.). The murder happened just after she was to go public with her story of sexual harassment by Clinton in the White House.

(He was about to testify against Hillary related to the records she refused to turn over to congress.) Was reported to have been having an affair with Hillary.

4 – Ron Brown – Secretary of Commerce and former DNC Chairman. Reported to have died by impact in a plane crash. A pathologist close to the investigation reported that there was a hole in the top of Brown’s skull resembling a gunshot wound. At the time of his death Brown was being investigated, and spoke publicly of his willingness to cut a deal with prosecutors. The rest of the people on the plane also died. A few days later the Air Traffic controller committed suicide.

5 – C. Victor Raiser, II – Raiser, a major player in the Clinton fund raising organization died in a private plane crash in July 1992.

8 – Jerry Parks – Head of Clinton’s gubernatorial security team in Little Rock .. Gunned down in his car at a deserted intersection outside Little Rock. Park’s son said his father was building a dossier on Clinton. He allegedly threatened to reveal this information. After he died the files were mysteriously removed from his house.

11 – Kathy Ferguson – Ex-wife of Arkansas Trooper Danny Ferguson, was found dead in May 1994, in her living room with a gunshot to her head. It was ruled a suicide even though there were several packed suitcases, as if she were going somewhere. Danny Ferguson was a co-defendant along with Bill Clinton in the Paula Jones Lawsuit, and Kathy Ferguson was a possible corroborating witness for Paula Jones.

12 – Bill Shelton – Arkansas State Trooper and fiancée of Kathy Ferguson. Critical of the suicide ruling of his fiancée, he was found dead in June, 1994 of a gunshot wound also ruled a suicide at the grave
site of his fiancée.

h/t The Political Commentator

Statistics (insert snoring sounds here…)

The Whited Sepulchre often brings us tables of a statistical nature, but unlike dry statistics, they are oft nourished with the cream of truth!  To wit…

How freakin’ huge is your share of what Obama is spending?  If you’re a smart person and not even bothering to work any more, your share of the government’s fifty-year spending spree is only around $50,000.00.  If you’re one of the dwindling number of net taxpayers, your share is around $100,000.00.

Would you like to turn back the clock and make a few changes in this?  (BTW, the debt is now close to 17 trillion.  Remember the good old days shown here, when it was only 10 trillion?)

Let’s move on.  would you like to earn a dollar and be able to keep the dollar for longer than a few minutes without it losing value?

The Federal Reserve was given the job of stabilizing the money supply way back in 1913.  Here’s what has happened to the value of a dollar (as determined by the money supply) since 1971.  The red line represents the inflation rate – AKA the increase money supply.

Want to invent a time machine, turn back the clock, and for the sake of everyone on a fixed income tell Tricky Dicky Nixon  to leave us on the gold standard?

Let’s move on to Nixon’s dirty little War On Drugs, and what it’s done to the incarceration rate.  (BTW, a white woman has a one in 111 chance of going to jail at some point in her life.  But for a black dude, it’s a one in 3 chance.)

Want to turn back the clock and convince Nixon that his War On Drugs is a bad idea?  Or is wanting to turn back the clock, under any circumstances, a sign that someone is a racist reactionary?

Has it worked?
No.
Are we going to keep doing it?
Well, do Barack and the Democrats rely on Narc, Jailer, DEA, Homeland Security, Torturer, Prison Contractor and Police Force votes to get elected?
Yes.
That’s why we’re going to keep doing this crap.

More Evidence of Global Warming…

Cairo, Egypt

“Climate Change”. sorry

Funny how when the IPCC came out a couple months ago stating there was scant actual evidence of their previously reported global warming being true that not only did most of the media ignore this, but the IPCC themselves opted to NOT change their previous pronouncements.  And, of course, no one noticed changing ‘Global Warming’ to ‘Climate Change’ as being the slightest unscientific…

The Four Rules

1. ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
