Soros

Much has been written in these pages and on the Internet regarding George Soros, who unabashedly seems most interested in destroying Western Civilization.

The fact that so many of his fellow travelers and sycophants happily climb on board the train of destruction unnerves me.  especially as so many of them were educated in The United States!

Soros Memos Paint Picture of a Power-Hungry ‘God’

George Soros should scare the hell out of anybody with a lick of sense.

Born a Hungarian Jew, his first job was working for the Nazis in World War II, helping to confiscate the property of Jews who were being rounded up, a job he not only never expressed any regret for, but that he described as one of the finest times of his life.

He has described himself, and the power he has as a billionaire, as being like a mad god.

“Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad,” Soros said in an interview on British television.

And he certainly has considerable power to back up his fantasies, including the power to make the video clip of his famous 60 Minutes interview, or leaked documents from his Open Society Foundations, virtually disappear from the Internet.

Among the documents that were downloaded by various news outlets before they vanished, there are numerous eye-openers that clarify exactly how deep Soros’ various schemes go, and paint a picture of a man who can manipulate markets, order around governments and arrange coups wherever he likes.

Soros comes about as close to a comic book supervillain as you can get in real life. Honestly, he could give Lex Luthor or Doctor Doom a run for their money.

Among the revelations found so far in the Soros documents:

More @ Constitution

The fact that so many ‘young people’ (and their elders) have their minds manipulated by this clown, whilst their thoughts are buried in comic books and comicons, and superhero movies – and they are well into their 20’s! greatly concerns me.

Of course, that was probably part of the plan all along…

 

Attention All Ostriches!

We saw three terrorist incidents yesterday (Saturday):

Also. there was some kind of LGBTQ manifesto found earlier, which may have been misdirection, coincidental or a false flag.  Regardless:

WE ARE UNDER ATTACK!

and THIS, regarding one of the suspects:

(name excised), whom police nabbed and shot after a day-long dragnet in connection with a series of terror attacks in and around New York was a bad father who disliked America, hated gays and took long trips to his homeland of Afghanistan, the mother of his young daughter exclusively tells FoxNews.com.

More on this story: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/09/19/bomb-suspect-rahami-deadbeat-hated-america-says-his-daughter-s-mother.html

Whether or not the attackers have some twisted view of the religion of Allah, or Christ, the Easter Bunny, LGBTQ or LSMFT is of no consequence!  Is it ‘workplace violence’?  Who cares?
I DON’T CARE ABOUT THE ATTACKER’S MOTIVATION!  I’M ONLY CONCERNED ABOUT PRESERVING LIFE, FAMILY, FRIENDS AND THE REPUBLIC!
THIS BEGINS WITH MY MINDSET!
War is no longer defined by geographic boundaries.  Nor are the participants.  Nor does the enemy seem to have signed the Geneva Convention rules.
EVERYONE is considered a combatant (or potential target) by the enemy.  TERRORISTS (foreign and domestic) seem only interested in causing as much death and mayhem as possible.  POLITICIANS are only interested in using these attacks to feather their own nest and denying the citizenry their natural rights.
“We’re at war, America’s at the mall.” (from a LTC in Baghdad in 2006)
Now they’ve brought the fight to the mall…
What to do?
We must take the fight to them!
How do we do that?
First, go about our daily lives.  If we hide cowering, they win!
Second…
ALWAYS CARRY EVERYWHERE!  REMAIN IN CONDITION YELLOW AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.  CHECK YOUR SIX.
And if you pray, please do so.

Obama’s Military Coup Purges 197 Officers In Five Years

Defense: What the president calls “my military” is being cleansed of any officer suspected of disloyalty to or disagreement with the administration on matters of policy or force structure, leaving the compliant and fearful.

We recognize President Obama is the commander-in-chief and that throughout history presidents from Lincoln to Truman have seen fit to remove military commanders they view as inadequate or insubordinate. Turnover in the military ranks is normal, and in these times of sequestration and budget cuts the numbers are expected to tick up as force levels shrink and missions change.

Yet what has happened to our officer corps since President Obama took office is viewed in many quarters as unprecedented, baffling and even harmful to our national security posture. We have commented on some of the higher profile cases, such as Gen. Carter Ham. He was relieved as head of U.S. Africa Command after only a year and a half because he disagreed with orders not to mount a rescue mission in response to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack in Benghazi.

I found this particularly of interest, as it wasn’t some screed from WND or  Alex Jones, but from IBD!

Say What Now?, Part Dos

Alabama ACLU sues government, claiming pro-Muslim discrimination

Via Billy

Plaintiff Yvonne Allen is a devout Christian woman who covers her hair with a headscarf as part of her religious practice. In December 2015, Ms. Allen sought to renew her driver license at the Lee County driver license office, where officials demanded that she remove her head covering to be photographed. When Ms. Allen explained her religious beliefs, the County officials responded with a remarkable claim: They admitted that there was a religious accommodation available for head coverings, but contended that it applied only to Muslims.

The ACLU press release adds:

Lee County’s refusal to grant Allen a religious accommodation contradicts state rules and violates her rights under the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the Alabama Constitution, according to the lawsuit.

“The county’s interpretation of state rules blatantly violates the First Amendment,” said Susan Watson, executive director of the ACLU of Alabama. “The government cannot discriminate between faiths in granting religious accommodations.”

Heather L. Weaver, senior staff attorney for the ACLU’s Program on Freedom of Religion and Belief, agreed. “The county’s policy is puzzling. There is absolutely no reason to restrict accommodations for religious headgear to certain religions. The Constitution protects both Christians and Muslims and, indeed, people of all faiths.

The World has indeed turned upside down.  Or, become The Bizarro World – depending on one’s point of reference.

Guffaw actually agreeing with the ACLU?!

Historically, an organization who has stood up for folks rights, even if they were ‘misunderstood’ folks – like Illinois Nazis.  But only stood up for the Second Amendment rights of folks if doing so suited another purpose.  Generally, the ACLU picks and chooses which rights and amendments to support.  And when.

I remember my father calling them THE AMERICAN COMMUNIST LAWYERS UNION!

A Taxing Problem

The Hardest Thing to Understand in the World is the Income Tax. – Albert Einstein(*This is part 2 of a multi-part series. For other posts in the series click on the “A Republic If You Can Keep It” category at the bottom of this post.)

The U.S. tax code is 74,608 pages long. Every man woman and child is expected to calculate the tax they have paid and/or owe the federal government at least once a year (families can choose to file jointly).

It’s common knowledge that two, individual tax accountants can look at the same person’s information and come up with different numbers; even if the person’s situation is not complex. It’s not only possible, it is likely. Even two different IRS auditors are likely to come up with different numbers.

The IRS can audit back to six years, and even further if they decide they have reason. Therefore, it is almost a guarantee that every adult in the U.S. who is over the age of 24 has some discrepancy the IRS can uncover in their tax filings. The IRS can garnish your wages. The IRS can send you to prison, just ask Dinesh D’souza. As we’ve seen with the Tea Party, the IRS can determine who can have an organization, when that organization can function, and when it can’t. The IRS can stop a business from collecting money or selling products or services. The IRS can shut down private schools, churches, clubs… The IRS can take your home.

Except for a few, brief periods, there was no federal income tax prior to 1913. The tax code was 400 pages long then. In 1940 it was barely over 500 pages long. FDR’s New Deal and World War II created some new taxes. By the end of the war it was 8,200 pages long. It is almost 10 times larger now.

We all know no one really understands it. We all know the government can accuse anyone of not complying. Page after page. April after April. Year after Year.

Eliminate the income tax!  Period!

This will force the government to hone down their bloated leviathan AND lessen their petty power and control over the individual.

And, while we’re at it, let’s restore the original CONSTITUTIONAL method of choosing State Senators.  And eliminate the Federal Reserve.

I know, I’m beginning to sound like Rand Paul!

Kaepernick

Regular readers of GiA know I’m no sports fan.  It’s only when a sports figure does something of note (as with many of the Olympic athletes) or does something onerous (as with some Olympic athletes) that it gets my attention.

This Kaepernick guy apparently refused to stand for the National Anthem at the last game.  And, in spite of the firestorm of controversy reacting to his remaining seated, said he will continue not to stand.  Until things change regarding the oppression of Blacks in the United States.

He’s Black.  His parents are White.  He makes NINETEEN MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR AND LIVES IN A MANSION.

What could have happened?  What oppression?

A quick search (on Duck Duck Go) regarding the National Anthem situation made it appear his protest was all about injustice done to Blacks.  BLM stuff.  A subsequent search adding the term ISLAM brought forth stories that Kaepernick converted to Islam during the off season – probably because his girlfriend is a radical Islam radio show personality…

Funny how the more narrow Internet search failed to mention this conversion.  And the ‘news’ outlets in the broader version consisted of bloggers and sketchier news outlets (IOW, NOT CNN, NBC and such.  WND for example).

Which brings me to my point.  Many of the folks leaving comments on the National Anthem story demand that Kaepernick be forced to stand.  As repulsive as his behavior my be, forcing someone to stand in ‘free’ Republic doesn’t sound like an appropriate response to me.

I’m a big believer in free markets.  And voting with one’s feet, TV remotes and wallets.  And via Email and post if necessary.

If you don’t want to support this clown, don’t watch his game, buy his team’s foam fingers or products advertised.  Hit ’em where it hurts.

I LOVE this Republic and her Anthem.  Singing along with my hand over my heart sometimes brings me to tears.

But forcing someone to stand – that smacks of fascism, and certainly doesn’t paint a portrait of the Land Of The Free.

I don’t care what religion he is.  But, it IS interesting that the mainstream media has been soft-pedaling that information.

Hmmm.

Who Am I?

I’m having a bit of an identity crisis.

I was born white, which makes me a racist.

I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which makes me a fascist.

I am heterosexual, which makes me a homophobe.

I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business.

I am older than 55 and semi retired which makes me a useless old man.

I think and I reason; therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which makes me a reactionary.

I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.

I value my safety and that of my family; therefore I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right wing extremist.

I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which makes me anti-social.

I, and my friends, acquired a good education without student loans and no debt at graduation, which makes me some kind of odd underachiever.

I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland by all citizens, which makes me a militarist.

Please help me come to terms with this, because I’m not sure who I am anymore!

And now I don’t know which bathroom to use anymore….

Presidential Candidates And Their Health

It makes sense the electorate should be concerned about a candidate’s health.  ANY candidate.  After all, William Henry Harrison caught pneumonia during his inaugural address (two hours, in the snow) and died 30 days later.

We’ve had candidates who drank, smoked, fooled around.  FDR was a polio victim and largely hid it from the general public.  Jack Kennedy had a bad back, Addison’s disease and used speed (in addition to his other pursuits).  Reagan may have had the beginnings of his demise while still in office.

And that guy who dropped out of the race because he had been treated for depression.

Now we have a current candidate.  With many possible health issues.

Hillary Clinton

(from Brock Townsend, in part)

Here are some more interesting facts about her health that the mainstream media ignores:

  • She’s a compulsive liar, which may not just be an issue of repugnant character. Dr. Gina Loudon, a political psychology and behavior expert, spoke to WND.“Robert Reich, M.D., a New York City psychiatrist and expert in psychopathology, says compulsive lying can be associated with dementia or brain injury. Otherwise, compulsive lying can be associated with a range of diagnoses, such as antisocial, borderline and narcissistic personality disorders.”
  • She has intermittently worn Fresnel glasses since her concussion. These glasses correct double vision (often due to a traumatic brain injury.)  The Fresnels reappeared on the campaign trail about the time of the fall pictured above.
  • She is prone to uncontrollable coughing fits when she speaks publicly.
  • She only made it 4 blocks in the Gay Pride parade last June before she was apparently too tired to continue.
  • She has had obvious seizures, on camera, with several occurring over the past few weeks. (You can find the videos here.)
  • She has a medic handler who goes everywhere with her….and it appears that he’s carrying an injector pen of Diazepam. The drug, also known as Valium, can be used to halt seizures.
  • She got confused and completely froze on stage when she spoke in Vegas. As a political veteran, tough questions and angry crowds shouldn’t be overwhelming. Her handler appeared at her side to let her know she was okay and that she should keep talking.

Then there’s THIS:

Is the hole in Hillary’s tongue from removing a stud, or is it from cancer surgery? According to the blog Lame Cherry:

“the only way one has one of these is that a physician has cut out a huge growth on the tongue, and the only reason one cuts out this huge of a growth on a tongue, is it is cancer.

What kind of cancer?  The Internet is rife with speculation, which I won’t repeat here.

Regardless of her politics, I don’t want someone this ill serving as the President.

‘No, the Constitution Does Not Bar Religious Tests in Immigration Law’

from Free North Carolina)

Via Mike

Properly vetting would-be immigrants’ religious beliefs is not only legal — it would be wise and prudent. Of all the ignorant pronouncements in the 2016 presidential campaign, the dumbest may be that the Constitution forbids a “religious test” in the vetting of immigrants. Monotonously repeated in political speeches and talking-head blather, this claim is heedless of the Islamic doctrinal roots on which foreign-born Islamists and the jihadists they breed base their anti-Americanism. It is also dead wrong.

The clause said to be the source of this drivel is found in Article VI. As you’ll no doubt be shocked to learn, it has utterly nothing to do with immigration. The clause states, “no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States” (emphasis added). On its face, the provision is not only inapplicable to immigrants at large, let alone aliens who would like to be immigrants; it does not even apply to the general public. It is strictly limited to public officials — specifically to their fitness to serve in government positions.

If It’s SCARY, It Should Be ILLEGAL!

(from The Firearm Blog, in part)

The last few months in the US have been pretty tumultuous if you have been watching the news. Without getting too political, we have seen terror attacks, hate crimes, and a multitude of other criminal activity. It is truly unsettling and has a lot of people on edge. Some people want to scream gun control or make other arguments, but I digress. What is interesting is what firearms some Americans think should be legal or illegal. Vox, an internet news site, tried to delve into that exact topic.

Vox teamed up with Morning Consult and tried to ask the question of firearm legality. They asked 2,000 people whether certain firearms should be legal or illegal merely based on appearance and their name. The infographic below is very telling. The less it looks like a hunting firearm and the more scary it appears lead whoever they surveyed to believe it should be illegal!

Vox

You get some interesting, and maybe not surprising results, when you start to identify respondents by their political affiliation. Vox and Morning Consult took it a few steps further by dividing results from their survey by gender. Their full story and results can be found HERE.

Yeah, regardless of what the polls think (democracy), I will keep my guns and, if at all possible add more.
