The Red Scare And The American Caliphate

(from Patrick J. Buchanan, as reported in Human Events)

Dalton Trumbo Had It Coming

“Dalton Trumbo was a socialist, but he loved being rich.”

So says Bryan Cranston, who stars in “Trumbo,” out this week, and plays the screenwriter who went to prison with the Hollywood Ten in the time of Harry Truman.

Actually, Trumbo was not a socialist. Bernie Sanders is a socialist. Trumbo was a Stalinist, a hard-core Communist when the Communist Party USA was run from Moscow by the Comintern, agents of the greatest mass murderer of the 20th century.

Trumbo was not what Lenin called a “useful idiot,” a liberal simpleton. He was the real deal, a Bolshevik who followed every twist and turn in the Moscow party line.

When Hitler signed his infamous pact with Stalin, and Germany and Russia crucified Poland and Hitler overran France, Trumbo justified the Nazi brutality, “To the vanquished all conquerors are inhuman.”

As Churchill led his country in defying Hitler, Trumbo, in his 1941 novel, “The Remarkable Andrew,” trashed Britain as no democracy, as it had a king, and charged FDR with “black treason” for seeking to aid the Brits in their desperate fight to stave off defeat by the Nazis.

A talented screenwriter who wrote “Roman Holiday,” “Spartacus” and “Exodus,” Trumbo was attracted to revolutionary violence.

Invited to do a screenplay of William Styron’s “Confessions of Nat Turner,” about the Virginia slave who led a rampage of rape and murder in 1831, Trumbo wrote back:

“[I]n carrying through his rebellion Turner did nothing more than accept a principle of white Christian violence which had enslaved all of Africa, and used it for the first time in American history as a weapon against white Christians.”

Biographer Larry Ceplair quotes Trumbo as describing America as “fundamentally” racist, with racism “the keystone of national policy both domestic and foreign…

“How many gooks have we killed in Korea? How many slopes in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia? Millions, and we’re still killing more of them. Our thirst for the blood of dark-skinned sub-humans is insatiable.”

Why is Hollywood making a movie about Trumbo?

To whitewash the traitor and his comrades who were blacklisted for refusing to testify to the House Un-American Activities Committee about their Communist Party membership and affiliations.

In promoting “Trumbo,” Hollywood’s flacks write of the late 1940s as the “darkest days” in American history.

They were dark all right. But probably less dark for Tinseltown Bolsheviks than the hundreds of millions who fell under the rule of the revolutions and regimes they supported in those years.

Between 1946 and 1950, Stalin murdered the Russian POWs we sent back in Operation Keelhaul, imposed his barbarous rule on 10 Christian nations of Eastern Europe, blockaded Berlin, built an atom bomb with the aid of American traitors Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, helped Mao Zedong conquer China and begin a slaughter of Chinese that would exceed the millions attributed to Stalin himself.

In 1950, Stalin backed Kim Il-Sung’s invasion of South Korea that left millions dead, including 33,000 Americans. The film script, “An American Story,” found in Trumbo’s papers, reveals deep sympathy for North Korea during that war.

As Allan Ryskind, son of Hollywood writer Morrie Ryskind, writes in “Hollywood Traitors,” his definitive new book published by Regnery, “There appeared to be no corkscrew twist in the Soviet line [Trumbo] wouldn’t embrace.”

With all its attendant favorable publicity, “Trumbo,” is designed to accomplish several goals. No only to heroize the Hollywood Ten, but to demean John Wayne and the other patriots who, along with Ronald Reagan of the Screen Actors Guild, helped clean the treasonous vermin out of their town and industry.

The villainess of “Trumbo,” played by Helen Mirren, is Hedda Hopper, the anti-Communist columnist who had considerable clout in Hollywood and backed Ronald Reagan, Ryskind Sr. and John Wayne, who eventually drove the Communists from their midst.

Larger issues are raised by this film.

If one has been a Communist, or a Nazi, and supported that evil ideology and its aims, what is one’s moral obligation to one’s country?

Is it not to step forward, and tell the truth?

What was the duty of Congress, if not to expose ideological treason in the most powerful cultural force in the America of that day?

What was the duty of the leaders of a great industry that found a nest of traitors in their midst, whose deepest allegiance was to our mortal enemy?

For remaining mute, refusing to testify before the Congress, the Hollywood Ten are portrayed as martyrs to the First Amendment.

Yet, as Communists, they were providing aid and comfort to the greatest enemies free speech and freedom of the press ever had.

Had the Hollywood Ten supported a subversive party in Stalin’s Moscow, what would have happened to them might have been slightly worse than not getting screen credits for the movies they wrote.

By joining a criminal conspiracy dedicated to the overthrow of the government established to protect our freedoms, and the imposition of Communist tyranny, the Hollywood Ten got what they deserved.

By their treason, they blacklisted themselves.

Funny how it keeps coming out that Senator McCarthy was right – there were Communists hiding in government, the military and Hollywood.  But he f***** himself over, being a Constitution-stomping media whore, and was then rightfully censured for having done so.

Of course, now we just elect anti-American bastards outright, and they bring unrepentant terrorists and foreign agents right into the Seat of Government.  No need to hide, now…

And while much of Europe is now acting to push the Trojan Horse of ‘refugees’ back out the gates, the United States is continuing to offer them sanctuary, paying little attention to the lessons of the Paris attacks.

I wonder if fifty years from now, screenwriters will be writing romantically about the treasonous acts of the terrorism pioneers of the American Caliphate.

In Arabic. 

I Must Post Regarding The French Terrorist Attacks

france+flagI really didn’t want to, but am compelled.

First and foremost – My thoughts and prayers go out to the innocents who were killed; their friends and family who survive them.

Second – as my dear friend Tomi the Art Historian posted:  Aux armes, citoyens!

Sadly, I fear the French will not follow her recommendation.  The French (and most of Europe) have followed America’s politically-correct example, and in the name of humanitarianism have opened their borders to the armies of refugees pouring in from The Middle East.

Many of whom appear to be young men of military age, unaccompanied by wives and children.

Sacre’ Bleu!

The amazing thing is that while we are preparing to open our borders even further, we’ve only had mostly little onesie and twosie terrorist attacks.  Nothing of the scale of yesterday’s attacks in France.

And I must ask:  WHY?

Certainly, we have more FREEDOM than the French?  Perhaps the attacks were more about geographic location and convenience than freedom?

OH!  I know!  The French have very restrictive gun control laws.  The civilians largely do not have the means, or the rights, to respond to violence as we do here in much of The United States!

And terrorists are largely cowards, who talk big behind their ski-masks about dying to meet 72 virgins, but in real life don’t want a violent response.

They want victims, not combatants.

So, I fear France will remain largely naked against the terror threat.  And the attacks will continue.

There is a lesson in this United States!  Are you listening?

Don’t let the government further disarm you!  Lest we become as Europe.

Socialist Syllogism

So let me get this straight…

The INDIVIDUAL should have no power.  The ‘Cult of the Individual’ is fallacious.  Individual liberty is not the desired result. (Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders)

And all Property is theft. (Karl Marx)

Here in this Constitutionally-mandated Republic with a Bill of (Individual) Rights…

BUT, it is the inherent ‘goodness’ and power of the collective which we should seek.

THE STATE should have all the power.  And property.

As they know best what is good for us.  (To each, according to their need, yatta, yatta – Karl Marx)

And (eventually) when The State has achieved true equality for all people, it shall wither away.

It’s function is to ‘level the playing field’. (The President)

It takes a Village. (Hillary Clinton)


Now this collective is a group.  A committee.


How exactly does THAT work?

And what have we learned regarding committees?


Or perhaps I should say Comintern?

Putin On The Ritz

(I just flashed on Peter Boyle as The Monster, in a tux, tap-dancing in Young Frankenstein – sorry!)

This came my way, courtesy of Doc in Yuma, a kind and generous friend and reader of this humble blog…

On August 04, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia:

“In Russia, live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslim’s then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law.

Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’.

We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture. We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation. The muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia.

The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims. When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities Are Not Russians.”

The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five minute standing ovation.

If you keep this to yourself, you are part of the problem! SEND THIS ON!

It is a sad day when a (former) Communist leader (now an oligarch) makes more sense than our own elected leaders !!!!

I know it’s politically incorrect, but try substituting Americans for Russians in the above, and illegal aliens for Muslims.

It’s fine to remember and honor one’s ethnic and religious traditions upon arriving here, but remember, this is The United States.

E Pluribus Unum

(Word from a loyal commenter is Putin DID NOT say this!   It does sound like him, though…) 😆

War Is A Racket

As my dear, departed Father used to intone, “I used to be young and foolish – I’m not young anymore!”

When I was younger, I supported The War Police Action in Vietnam.  The rationale seemed simple.  Our allies (the South Vietnamese) were under attack by the (Soviet Russian and Red Chinese communist supported) North Vietnamese.

It seemed to be a way to make The Cold War hot, without actually fighting Russia and China directly.

And we must not only defend out allies, but oppose communism wherever it rears it ugly head.

This was similar to the Korean War Police Action Conflict a few years earlier.

(And we know how well THAT worked out!)

And I was prepared to voluntarily go and fight for my Country.

Except, with a fused hip, the military changed my draft status to IV-F.  And I sat on the sidelines.

And we saw how well Vietnam worked out…

Since that time, there was Lebanon, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Grenada, Panama, the Balkans, then Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan (in part).

And there was always a rationale proposed by the government regarding why we needed to go to war.  You may agree with some.  You may disagree with some.

But, as I age, I am beginning to question governmental motives more.

YES, I do believe it was appropriate for us to fight the Nazis and the Japanese Empire in WWII.  And I am still an anti-communist.

Vietnam, Germany, Italy and Japan are now trade partners.

And Red China rules our financial future.  Whether we like it or not.

War for petroleum?  Or to stop WsMD?  That debate will probably continue.

We should defend our national interests.  But, if we are being played by government (or corporate interests) to leap to that defense…(?)

The military-industrial complex President Eisenhower warned us about does exist.  The question is how much of government is enmeshed in it?

War Is A Racket

 Re-post from NamSouth 2009 and FNC 2011/2012

Here richly, with ridiculous display,

The Politician’s corpse was laid away.

While all of his acquaintances sneered and slanged, I wept:

For I had longed to see him hanged.

–Hilaire Belloc

War is a Racket by Smedley Butler is a famous speech denouncing the military industrial complex. This speech by two-time Congressional Medal of Honor recipient exposes war profits that benefit few at the expense of many. Throughout his distinguished career in the Marines, Smedley Darlington Butler demonstrated that true patriotism does not mean blind allegiance to government policies with which one does not agree. To Hell with war.


Smedley Darlington Butler (July 30, 1881June 21, 1940), nicknamedThe Fighting Quaker andOld Gimlet Eye “, was a Major General in the U.S. Marine Corps and, at the time of his death,the most decorated Marine in U.S. history

During his 34 years of Marine Corps service, Butler was awarded numerous medals for hero ism including the Marine Corps Brevet Medal (the highest Marine medal at its time for officers), and subsequently the Medal of Honor twice. Notably, he is one of only 19 people to be twice awarded the Medal of Honor, and one of only three to be awarded a Marine Corps Brevet Medal and a Medal of Honor, and the only person to be awarded a Marine Corps Brevet Medal and a Medal of Honor for two different actions.
In addition to his military career, Smedley Butler was noted for his outspoken anti- interventionistviews, and his book War is a Racket. His book was one of the first works describing the workings ofthe military-industrial complex and after retiring from service, he became a popular speaker at meetings organized by veterans, pacifists and church groups in the 1930s.

The instantaneous Internet news cycle doesn’t help with our decision-making.  ANYONE can post their ‘facts’ as news, making thoughtful political reasoning nearly impossible.
And EVERYONE seems to have an agenda!

Just When You Thought It Was Safe, Part III…

jawsor maybe IV, I forget. (courtesy of Old NFO,)

(aka, an extreme overuse of film icons…)

About that privacy…

You ‘thought’ you had…

Remember how criminal fingerprint bases were kept separate from military and civil (e.g. fingerprinted for a job)?

Yeah, not so much anymore…

I completely missed this one, but it came out in a discussion of the latest release of the ever increasing scope of the OPM hack (an additional 6 million files hacked, PLUS all fingerprints).

This from the EFF-

FBI Combines Civil and Criminal Fingerprints into One Fully Searchable Database

Being a job seeker isn’t a crime. But the FBI has made a big change in how it deals with fingerprints that might make it seem that way. For the first time, fingerprints and biographical information sent to the FBI for a background check will be stored and searched right along with fingerprints taken for criminal purposes.

The change, which the FBI revealed quietly in a February 2015 Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA), means that if you ever have your fingerprints taken for licensing or for a background check, they will most likely end up living indefinitely in the FBI’s NGI database. They’ll be searched thousands of times a day by law enforcement agencies across the country—even if your prints didn’t match any criminal records when they were first submitted to the system.

Full article HERE. What isn’t clear, but is included are ALL the military fingerprints, which we were told were always to be kept separately for security reasons…

Yeah, right… Shoulda known better…

You can read the Fibbies Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) HERE.

Think about it… How many doors, objects, etc. do you touch on a daily basis when getting too/from work… The grab bar on the Metro, the bus, the door to the elevator, handrails? Bathroom doors? Restaurant doors at lunch?

Suppose there is an incident at a location you’ve been to, they dust and lo an behold your fingerprints show up…

You have a high security job, now how are you going to explain to YOUR security people why the cops just hauled you downtown for an ‘interview’…


But wait… It is going to get even better! For certain values of better…

Specifically, in 2012, Deputy Assistant Director Jerome Pender stated:

Only criminal mug shot photos are used to populate the national repository. Query photos and photos obtained from social networking sites, surveillance cameras, and similar sources are not used to populate the national repository.

But the new RFQ contradicts this because it appears the desired software would allow officers to submit non-mug shot photos to NGI. The RFQ says the FBI is looking for a mobile biometrics tool that would, “at a minimum . . . include fingerprints and facial photographs for submission and receipt of a response.” Photographs taken in the field are clearly not “mug shot photos” because they’re taken before booking and possibly even before arrest. And it’s hard to see how a mobile tool that allows officers to collect these non-mug shot photos and “submit” them to a database is not also “populating the national repository.”

The article from EFF is HERE. And HERE’s the link to the FedBizOps page for the biometric system…

Yep, kiss that whole privacy thing good by… As if we had any to start with…

h/t Lawdog

Yeah.  Thanks, Jim (and Lawdog)! (groan)

And, of course, we know the BATFE is not continuing to add to a database involving NICS check data, because it would be a violation of criminal law…

Yeah, right…

Ya think some enterprising young attorney at the DOJ isn’t conspiring to meld these databases together, along with Homeland Security?  For our safety, of course.

Yeah, right…

Pick one…


We’re Not Accepting Enough Refugees!

muslim colonists

Yeah, right.

America Has Taken More Than Our Share Of Refugees

The United States is the most generous nation in the world, and we have taken many refugees from foreign lands. Europe has not offered to take refugees from Central America, so why are some politicians here insisting that we take many thousands of refugees from the Middle East?

While refugee crises are tragic, crimes committed by transplanted peoples against unwarned, unprotected victims in our own country are even more tragic. Politicians demanding that American neighborhoods accept thousands of refugees, without proper screening or any indication by the migrants that they genuinely want to assimilate into our culture, should be rejected.

Americans are horrified by images of tens of thousands of people, mostly unattached Muslim young men from the Middle East and Africa, crossing unguarded borders into Europe. The news media often describe these people sympathetically as refugees from the civil war in Syria, but many could be migrants seeking a more comfortable life in a rich society with a cradle-to-grave welfare state.

The scene is eerily reminiscent of the tens of thousands of people from Central America who crossed into the United States last summer. Often described sympathetically as unaccompanied minors fleeing gang violence, most of those Central American arrivals were able-bodied, tough young men who left their families in search of better economic opportunities.

Wealthy European nations did not offer to help out by accepting thousands of migrants from Central America. We did not expect that of them, and they should not expect it of us now.

The Muslim migrants follow a route through Turkey, Macedonia, and Serbia into Hungary, the European country closest to the Middle East, and from Hungary they can travel throughout 26 European nations. That route may soon close when Hungary completes the razor-wire fence it is building along its entire 108-mile border with Serbia.

The free movement of people across national boundaries, without passports, is required by the Schengen agreement, one of the central principles of the European Union. It makes those 26 member countries subject to the weakest link, the country with porous borders, in this case Hungary.

The idea of creating nations without borders, allowing the free movement of people inside a common perimeter, was pushed by President George W. Bush when he met with the Mexican president and the Canadian prime minister at Waco, Texas on March 23, 2005. Soon after that first summit of “the three amigos,” the Council on Foreign Relations published “Toward a North American Community” which called for a “seamless market” with “a more open border for the movement of goods and people.”

Fortunately, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) wants to put some brakes on giving away the security of our neighborhoods to thousands of people having unknown intentions about the United States and our way of life. “Before agreeing to accept tens of thousands of Syrian refugees, the Obama administration must prove to the American people that it will take the necessary precautions to ensure that national security is a top priority, especially at a time when ruthless terrorist groups like ISIS are committed to finding ways to enter the United States and harm Americans.”

Our daily freedoms could be sharply limited if terrorists were to slip into our country along with migrants from areas hostile to the United States. Senator Jeff Sesions (R-AL) warns that “we’re really not able to vet Middle Eastern applicants now, and if we increase that number, we’ll be even less able to do so.”

Stark financial problems also stand against welcoming so many strangers into our country. More than 90% of recent refugees from the Middle East are on welfare, according to official statistics published by the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR).

Our welfare system is already strained by the Central American migrants who entered our country illegally and never went home. There are a potential 6 billion people in the world who would like to partake in the American welfare system if given the opportunity, but we cannot afford to foot the bill for everyone in the world who does not have a job.

We should learn from the experience of accepting about 55,000 Somali refugees between 1983 and 2004, which included the Clinton Administration and three different Republican Administrations, and taking another 27,000 Somalis between 2008 and 2013 under the Obama Administration. Many were settled in Minnesota, where Somali participation in a food assistance program increased to 17,300 adults and children, not even including Somalis subsequently born here.

An open-door policy towards Syrian refugees would be dangerous and costly for American communities. As Senator Sessions says, “Our policy should be to keep the refugees as close to home as possible. For the cost of one in the United States, we could probably provide maintenance to 10, maybe more, in or near their home country.”  (Phyllis Schlafly)

reproduced in it’s entirety from Constitutionally – Constitutional Rights PAC

We must ask ourselves how generous are we?  Or rather can we afford to be?  And is this huge migration teaming masses yearning to breathe free?

Or is it a tactic to populate and destabilize with mostly young men?

AND, is our fear warranted, or simply another crisis to be taken advantage of by those ‘in charge’?

Food Stamps, Etc.

Doc in Yuma (a regular, loyal reader and sometime contributor) sent me this regarding control of Food Stamps.

Sent to him under the title “Compassionate Conservatism”.

Put me in charge…

  Put me in charge of food stamps. I’d get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for
Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans,
blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away.  If you want
steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.
  Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I’d do is to get women
Norplant birth control implants or tubal ligations.  Then, we’ll test
recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine and document all tattoos and
piercings.  If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, smoke or get
tats and piercings, then get a job.
  Put me in charge of government housing.  Ever live in a military barracks?
You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair.  Your
“home” will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be
inventoried.  If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your
own place.
  In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or
you will report to a “government” job.  It may be cleaning the roadways of
trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you.  We
will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo
and speakers and put that money toward the “common good..”
  Before you write that I’ve violated someone’s rights, realize that all of
the above is voluntary.  If you want our money, accept our rules.  Before
you say that this would be “demeaning” and ruin their “self esteem,”
consider that it wasn’t that long ago that taking someone else’s money for
doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.
  If we are expected to pay for other people’s mistakes we should at least
attempt to make them learn from their bad choices.  The current system
rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.
  AND – While you are on Gov’t subsistence, you no longer can VOTE!  Yes that
is correct.  For you to vote would be a conflict of interest.  You will
voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov’t
welfare check.  If you want to vote, then get a job.
  Alfred W. Evans, Gatesville , TX
First of all, I’m a (conservative) libertarian (small L).  Voluntarism, coupled with non-nanny-statism would be the order of the day.   With that in mind, some of the controls suggested are ones with which I disagree.  For example…
“Food” choices.  If an EBT (food stamp) recipient wants T-bone steak or Twinkies to eat – I don’t care!  Only so many funds are allocated each month, and buying steak will ‘eat up’ the funds rather quickly.
It would be nice if the purchase of TP, laundry soap and similar household items were included on the ‘approved’ list, though.
Forced birth control is repugnant to me.  And recreational drugs and body disfigurement are not on the food stamp list.  Not my problem.
The whole ‘government housing’ thing is also repugnant.  If someone wants to live in a hovel or cannot afford maintenance, it is no concern of mine.  As long as it doesn’t affect the public health and safety.   Funny how a ‘conservative’ cries for such control, but screams about the prospect of FEMA camps…
I do like the idea of (voluntary) government service to help maintain the infrastructure.  I’m not certain it should be tied to receipt of food stamps, however.
“While you are on Gov’t subsistence, you can no longer VOTE!  For you to vote would be a conflict of interest.”
WOW – what a concept!
Of course, while a compassionate State maintains some kind of a ‘safety net’ for the truly needy, I’m a little unclear how this can be administered efficiently, fairly and at a reasonable cost.
After all, it IS government of which we speak!

False Flags

EPA, FBI, DOJ, FDA, CDC, ATF: Nearly every government agency routinely plots and carries out false flag operations to justify its own existence

Via comment by Anonymous on Don’t Be Fooled by the Political Game: The Illusio…

Yesterday I posted an article asking for American citizens to send me water samples from the Animas River that the EPA has now heavily contaminated with toxic heavy metals. I want to test the water in my elemental analysis laboratory to expose the EPA’s pollution.The EPA used to prevent corporations from polluting the rivers, but now the EPA has become the polluter, the liar and the cover-up cartel. In that story, I pointed out the total absurdity of our sickening, corrupt government, where private citizens now have to conduct the science to expose the pollution of the EPA.That got me thinking… hey, wait a minute. Almost EVERY federal government agency is now functioning as a rogue entity. Nearly all of them routinely carry out false flag events in order to justify their own existence (and increase their budgets). In a very real way, U.S. government agencies have become mafia-style cartels carrying out domestic terrorism across America in order to justify their own existence.

Straws.  Camels backs.  Boiled frogs.  I truly don’t want to believe the above, because I’ve seen evidence of this piece-by-piece for years, and wrote it off to bureaucracies self-perpetuating.
I was (am) in denial.
THIS is why we have ever increasing budgets routinely asked-for and given for most government agencies – some of which have military hardware and budgets rivaling third-word countries!  (Including civilian police!)
And, of course, we have the intelligence agencies.  Secret budgets, money laundering, the E & I Bank, universal unwarranted surveillance and collusion with ‘continuing criminal enterprises’…
Come to think of it, some State and local law enforcement entities are guilty of collusion, as well.  Why else would the Mob (and it’s various permutations) be allowed to operate, largely unrestricted?  Criminal gangs?  Child porn and white slavery rings?
Sure, every now and there is some ‘big’ bust – a large smuggling tunnel with tons of weed, a drug house, some gang member holding an ‘arsenal’ (10 or 12 guns) is busted, to show the public they are holding up the public trust.
But the ring leaders and their politically-connected lackeys are rarely if ever prosecuted, or even mentioned.
Why is that?
And now (from above) …
The EPA used to prevent corporations from polluting the rivers, but now the EPA has become the polluter, the liar and the cover-up cartel. In that story, I pointed out the total absurdity of our sickening, corrupt government, where private citizens now have to conduct the science to expose the pollution of the EPA.

E Pluribus Unum

e pluribus unum“Out of Many, One.”

The motto of The United States of America

We are told to not see race.  To do so is politically incorrect.  Rude.  Profiling.

Yet, if we fill out a government form, how many have spaces for you to detail your ethnic heritage?  Most of them!

NOW, we have THIS!

A key part of President Obama’s legacy will be the fed’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race. The government is prying into our most personal information at the most local levels, all for the purpose of “racial and economic justice.”
Unbeknown to most Americans, Obama’s racial bean counters are furiously mining data on their health, home loans, credit cards, places of work, neighborhoods, even how their kids are disciplined in school — all to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites.

Read the article, especially the part where it says much of this data will be posted online.
