Well, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is proving that he is a good anti-American liberal. In a recent comment he noted that all the world’s problems were cause by the USA.

Kerry was speaking at the Washington Ideas Forum on October 30 and said that the world was “complicated” and made worse by the “worst stereotypes” perpetrated by the United States.

At one point, Kerry noted that the US wanted a less sectarian government in Iraq in order to help defeat ISIS. But this goal has been hard to achieve because of the USA itself.

IRS Impounds Bank Accounts With No Warrant, No Cause, No Crime And It’s Legal!

In Obama’s America all the IRS needs to take all your money, freeze your accounts, and arrest you is their opinion that your assets might be suspicious. No warrants are needed, no proof of any actual crime is required. All the IRS needs is its say so and your life can be turned upside down.

A story in The New York Times reports on how the abusive, overly powerful IRS destroys lives with impunity. One woman who runs a small restaurant had all her assets stolen by the IRS and never returned even though she has never been charged with any violations of the tax code or breaking any laws.

And this woman will not likely get her money back because the forfeitures are not held until the government finally figures out if there is any guilt involved, either. No, that money is immediately doled out to the various law enforcement agencies involved in the theft and is immediately spent.

FDR Invented The ‘Liar-In-Chief’ And Tore Down the Democrat Party And The Country

-By Warner Todd Huston

PBS and documentary maker Ken Burns have done it again with a wonderful look at the political lives of Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt. But if the series did anything it revealed to a discerning viewer how Franklin rebuilt the presidency on a pillar of hate and lies and remade the Democrat Party into a party driven by purposeful misdirection and deceit.

Certainly the series approaches these two consequential presidents as good for the country. Neither were as salubrious for the country as popular opinion holds and both did a lot of damage. To Burns’ credit he does allow conservative commentator George Will to slip in a few digs at how both Teddy and Franklin tore down the presidency and turned our country from a constitutional republic built on a pretty straightforward explication of the political raison d’être of any particular party, candidate or era and into a nation run by sneaky politicians who lie straight-faced to the people and don’t care about the Constitution at all.

Teddy Roosevelt did his bit to end our Constitutional republic, granted, and was followed by Woodrow Wilson who pounded a few more nails into that coffin. But it was Franklin Delano Roosevelt who really destroyed the country.

The truth is, Franklin was an utterly failed president in everything but his leadership in WWII. It has to be acknowledged that his stewardship of the war was great and maybe a lesser president would have left the US more vulnerable. But there is no doubt that he materially hurt this country in every other arena.

His domestic policy was a disaster, his economic policies utterly failed, and his disregard of the rule of law and the US Constitution was a disgusting display of arrogance and hubris. By forcing the world into war, Hitler ended the Great depression, not Franklin Roosevelt.

Cities That Have Used Military Equipment for Riot Control Might Owe Feds Millions

On Tuesday, Obama administration officials testified that local police who received surplus military equipment from a government program were never supposed to use that equipment for riot control and if the items were misused, cities may be forced to repay millions in grants given them by the government to purchase the equipment.

The testimony was delivered before Congress by members of the Defense and Homeland Security departments on Tuesday afternoon in a hearing that was spurred by shocking images from Ferguson, Missouri where police used a variety of military-styled equipment to quell rioting last month. Local police obtained some of that surplus military equipment through the Pentagon’s 1033 Program.

During the hearing Senators pointed out that many departments have been given equipment that they really have no legitimate need for. During the hearing it was revealed that one small Oklahoma county sheriff’s department for instance, received two 18-ton MRAP armored vehicles even though the department has only one full-time peace officer.

Several Senators questioned just why local police need military equipment at all. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul noted that 12,000 bayonets have been given out to local police and he wondered why a weapon of war like that, one used solely for killing and not peacekeeping, needed to be placed in the hands of a police department.

Illinois a ‘Sinkhole State': Rates Second Worst for Liability Per Taxpayer

Obama’s Illinois perennially ranks at the very bottom of every statistic that marks a successful state and a new report on America’s “sinkhole states” finds that Illinois again ranks at the very bottom this time for how much state debt each citizen is saddled with.

The statistics gathered by the excellent Chicago-based budget watchdog group Truth In Accounting calculated how much state debt–obligations like pensions, healthcare plans for retirees, etc–each citizen would have to pay to retire the debt in a lump sum.

The group has dubbed the worst states as “America’s Sinkhole States.”

Truth In Accounting found that Connecticut is the worst state in the union with each citizens owing 48 thousand dollars per citizen to retire the debt. But coming in a close second is the state of Illinois with a whopping 43 thousand dollars per citizen in debt.

Ferguson Fallout: School Lesson Teaches Kids To Agree With the Black Panthers’ Demands

A new school lesson plan hopes to capitalize on the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri that erupted after a police officer shot a black youth early in August. The plan urges kids to agree with the Black Panthers, a racist, hate group that urges segregation, and accept the demands they issued in the past.

An activist group that calls itself Teaching for Change, one that works with schools to push the hard-core, left-wing agenda branded “social justice” rushed out its lesson plan to capitalize on the death of teenager Michael Brown.

“As the new school year begins, first and foremost on our minds and in our hearts will be the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri,” said program architect Julian Hipkins.

Girl Suspended from School For Saying ‘Bless You’ after a Sneeze

A religion hating Tennessee High School teacher gave one of her students a suspension for daring to say “bless you” to a fellow student who sneezed even after the teacher banned the use of “God talk” in her classroom.

For most Americans saying “bless you” after someone sneezes is an automatic reaction. It is rarely connected with religion and is generally just a social custom. But a teacher from Dyer County High School in west Tennessee so hates the phrase that she banned its use in her classroom.

The thus far unnamed teacher put a list of banned words on a white board in the classroom. “Bless you” was on the list.

We Should Not Call Them The ‘Ruling Class,’ But the ‘Immunes’

-by Warner Todd Huston

In the bad old days when Kings reigned and the various classes of royalty vied for position the only danger for the “ruling class” was the fear that another member of their class might strike a blow against them. Unlike the lower classes, the rulers of antiquity were immune from the vagaries of life and out of reach of the law. In fact, there was no law. Unfortunately, we are headed right back in that scheme of life.

But one of the societal schemes that the founders of our country set about the task of destroying was that of the divine right of kings, the idea that royalty is subject to no earthly authority.

The founders wanted to create a society that allowed for social mobility among all citizens. They wanted a meritocracy where people could get ahead from the result of their own work and abilities. Above all they wanted a stable rule of law so that such stability could fuel growth.

For nearly 200 years their model worked admirably. But thanks to the drive toward communism starting at the end of the 1800s it appears that the founders’ societal invention has been destroyed.

The question for today is this: are we are living at the end of the American way of life? Has it been destroyed so badly that it is unable to be returned with the mere election of new leaders?

Wall Street Journal: Supporting Palestinians Means You Are a Blithering Idiot & Immoral, Too

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens has an excellent, clarifying piece explaining why if you support the so-called Palestinians that you are pretty much a moron, and an immoral moron at that. And he is dead on, too.

In his July 28 piece, “Palestine Makes You Dumb,” Stephens made the salient point that in a war set in an urban area, civilians die. Period. It happened in WWII, it happened in Iraq, it’s happening in Gaza. It is what happens when an enemy hides its facilities among a civilian population.

That latter part is key. Civilians are not dying because Israel is mean and evil. Civilians are dying because Hamas operates among the civilian populace.

Stephens goes on with another extremely important point. He points out that this body count we keep getting of dead Palestinian civilians is most likely completely bogus. Why? Because the media is using the numbers supplied them by… Hamas! The one group that has a vested interest in making sure there is a large civilian death rate–whether there really is one or not–is the one “reporting” those statistics. And the western media is lapping it up.

To cast doubt on the 82 percent civilian deaths statistic Hamas is reporting, Stephens notes that Hamas also reported exactly the same percentage in the 2008-09 Gaza conflict. Gee what a coinicdence, eh?

Hey, Chicago: Detroit Police Chief Says More Guns is Good

Chicago, Illinois is losing at least 3 to 4 citizens every weekend to violence with upwards to 25 shot. EVERY weekend. Chicago pols, the city’s police superintendent, and state Democrats say we need to ban guns to “fix” the problem. But the Detroit Chief of Police says an armed citizenry is making HIS city safer. Chicago could learn a lesson, here.

According to the Detroit News, Chief James Craig credited the fall in crime in the Motor City to the fact that more citizens are armed these days.

Detroit has experienced 37 percent fewer robberies in 2014 than during the same period last year, 22 percent fewer break-ins of businesses and homes, and 30 percent fewer carjackings. Craig attributed the drop to better police work and criminals being reluctant to prey on citizens who may be carrying guns.

“Criminals are getting the message that good Detroiters are armed and will use that weapon,” said Craig, who has repeatedly said he believes armed citizens deter crime. “I don’t want to take away from the good work our investigators are doing, but I think part of the drop in crime, and robberies in particular, is because criminals are thinking twice that citizens could be armed.”

Obama Drives Disability Recipients to 11 Million for First Time Ever

Obama’s massive enlargement of the welfare state has just gotten bigger. For the first time ever recipients of disability payments have topped 11 million Americans.

As CNSNews.com reports, for the first time ever disability recipients increased from “10,996,447 in April to a record 11,004,507 in May, according to new data released by the Social Security Administration.”

“The number of Americans receiving disability benefits continues to exceed the populations of Greece, Tunisia and Portugal and is drawing closer to Cuba, whose population of 11,047,251 (as reported by the CIA) is just 42,744 more than the 11,004,507 Americans receiving disability benefits.”

Obama’s goal is to destroy this country. There is no other possible explanation for this. None.

Triple Amputee US Veteran Destroys Obama in Open Letter

Senior Airman, Brian Kolfage Jr., is the most severely wounded Airman in US history–a triple amputee. Now the Veterans Admin is trying to force him to “pay back” $4,825 it claims he was “over paid” in benefits.

As reported by John DeMayo of Freedom Outpost, the Veterans Administration Debt Management Center informed Kolfage that he would be back charged for the $4,825. According to the VA, they had been overpaying Airman Kolfage for several years and now they want their money back.

DeMayor has the whole story of this cockup, but needless to say, Senior Airman Brian Kolfage is an American hero. He is a triple-amputee veteran of the War in Iraq who has surpassed all odds and made the most incredible recovery of any veteran to ever survive his injuries. He is a patriot–the kind of man you want your son to grow up to be.

But he seems to have had quite enough of this Obama character! Kolfage recently wrote an open letter to Obama that just puts this whelp of a President in his place.

So, here it is courtesy of Joe the Plumber:

Dear Mr. President,

I nearly died in a war that you and most of your colleagues supported overwhelmingly, including the two presidents who came before you. Many citizens may not agree with waging war in Iraq to free the oppressed Iraqi citizens, but it’s something that warriors like myself have zero control over. I joined to serve my country and to better my life. I’ve seen things that you could never imagine, and they have made me the person I am today.

Mr. Obama, even though we share extreme opposite views, we have one thing in common, we both attended school in Hawaii. However, that’s where the similarities end. You see, as you attended your exclusive, private school, I would ride my bike to Kaimuki High school in one of the roughest areas in Hawaii every morning and would ride past Punahou, the exclusive private school you attended. I would notice the Bentleys, Maserati’s, and fancy foreign cars that all the kids were dropped off in; wow it must have been extremely rough in Hawaii living that life, right? I could only imagine what it was like to have that kind of money. Fortunately for you, not many people are aware of the school and the upper class citizens who attended it. The tuition to attend your exclusive, private school was more than it cost me to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the University of Arizona. You talk a big game when it comes to financial inequality, yet I’m quite sure you have no idea what it’s truly like to have sacrifice. You were one of the elitist children in Hawaii.

The reason the blog has been so sparsely populated this last week is because I have been in Washington DC since March 2 taking meetings and then attending the 2014 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

Well, I say “attending” but I mean skipping much of it n favor of going to panels held outside the event, meetings in small rooms held by individuals and groups not participating at CPAC.

Oh, and I attended quite a few parties, too, of course.

There was Representative Louie Gohmert’s Party where he celebrated the launch of his new Political Action Committee, ?GOH Conservative PAC There I met Rush Limbaugh’s Bo Snerdley–yes he really exists.

From the floor of the Senate, Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid has stated that all those thousands of Americans that have reported that Obamacare is driving up their costs, not reducing them, and that Obamacare is a “horror story” are simply lying. Yes, Harry Reid just called thousands of Americans liars.

During remarks he made on the floor of the Senate on February 26, Reid talked about those many Americans who are reporting how Obamacare has hurt them. He said, “there’s plenty of horror stories being told,” about Obamacare. “All of them are untrue, but they’re being told all over America.”

But the stories are undeniable. Obamacre is hurting Americans from coast to coast. Are you telling us, Senator Reid, that all these thousands of Americans are liars?

No Gov’t Employee Should Make $400,000 a Year

A new transparency project has been launched in California that helps citizens learn just how much salary their government employees earn and the results are shocking. Hundreds of government workers make upwards to and more than $400,000 a year even as California drowns in taxes to pay for it all.

Over at Forbes, Mark Bucher reports of the new group Transparent California which has launched a new web portal where citizens can search out what public employees are earn in salary as well as what their pensions will be.

Some of these outrageous salaries will tend to choke you with rage.

“Consider Redwood City [population only 80,000],” Bucher writes, “where three fire captains and one firefighter made between $434,274 and $452,733 in total compensation in 2012. One police officer made $463,690 in total compensation. In all, nine employees made over $400,000 in total compensation with a total of 33, mostly police and fire department employees, making over $300,000 in total compensation in 2012.”

Despite Leftist Handwringing, Bicycles More Dangerous to Kids Than Guns

Liberals are still wailing about the “danger” our kids face in schools due to guns in the classroom and mass shootings. But even as Bloomberg’s absurd anti-gun group and others act as if we have some national crisis, the reality of it is that bicycles hurt more kids every year than guns, and not by just a little.

Certainly it is appalling if even one child is hurt in school and outrageous if he is hurt with a gun, but before we get all crazed over the “crisis” of guns in school, we need a bit of perspective.

For instance, left-wing Slate magazine noted just after the crime at Sandy Hook Elementary in 2012 that 297 kids had been killed in school shooting between 1980 and 2012.

Again, it is horrid that even one child should be killed at school, but let’s look at just a few other statistics to which to compare that three decades of school shootings.

Fetid Chicago Schools: 11-Year-Old Suspended for Broken Toy Gun

Once again we see the stupidity of the so-called “zero tolerance” policy in our fetid schools with an 11-year-old boy in Chicago who was suspended for voluntarily turning in a broken toy gun to school officials after he remembered he had it in his coat pocket when he got to school.

Chicago’s Frederick Funston Elementary School recently introduced random pat downs of students entering the school with an eye toward stopping weapons from coming into the classroom. So, when sixth grader Caden Cook was waiting in line to get into the school he remembered he had the broken toy gun in his coat pocket and voluntarily turned it in to school authorities.

Being honest was the student’s big mistake. Instead of school officials just taking the little toy and tossing it in the garbage like a sensible adult would do, the boy’s life was turned upside down from multiple attacks at the hands of school administrators incensed that the child dare to break their foolish, illogical “zero tolerance” policy.

Ivory: Another Arbitrary Example of Obama Banning Things

Trade in new items made of ivory is illegal in the United States. The ban was put in place in 1989 to save the lives of the world’s dwindling elephant population and to keep them from being heartlessly killed solely for their tusks. It’s a sensible ban, granted, but now Obama has arbitrarily taken that needless next step to ban even those ivory items made before the ban, a move that makes no sense at all.

Since time immemorial, items made from ivory have been prized by humans. Elephant tusks are a very pleasing looking material and makes beautiful decorative carvings. And even today, even after the ban, items that were made in the hundreds of years before the ban are prized on the collector’s and antiques markets.

But now Obama has decided that collectors and antiques dealers are criminals for even daring to own ivory items from pre-ban eras. The administration is moving to make sale or possession of any ivory, even pre-ban ivory, a crime.

Hypocrite: In 2008 Obama Said Executive Power Was Dangerous

We all know that Obama has been abusing his power as President, trying to push his policies on Americans through backdoor means and subverting the legislative process, but what did Obama think of the penchant of presidents to extend executive power when he ran for president in 2008? Well he was against it for George W. Bush, of course.

A lot of people have been pointing out that this president is lawlessly using his powers to regulate and to issue Executive Orders to subvert the legislative process and to get around having to live by our American system to force things on Americans that he can’t get politically or through the legal process. Yet Obama stood against this very sort of presidential action in 2008.

At a campaign stop on March 31, 2008 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Obama had these harsh words about what he considered Bush’s obscene misdeeds with executive power:

“I taught constitutional law for ten years,” President Obama claimed. “I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m President of the United States of America.”

So, what is he saying now that he is President?

Tens of Thousands of Connecticut Gun Owners Saying ‘NO’ To Unconstitutional Forced Registration Law

Connecticut politicians apparently thought their people were sheep.


Gun owners lining up to toss away their rights in Connecticut.

A few weeks ago I noted that it seems that tens of thousands of Connecticut’s gun owners were refusing to register their suddenly illegal guns and large capacity ammunition magazines. Now the media in the Nutmeg State are finally starting to notice.

At the end of January, I asked the key question, “How did ‘millions’ of high capacity magazines disappear in Connecticut?,” wherein I noted that previous estimates of how many assault weapons and magazines existed in the state was far and above that of those registered by the deadline imposed by the new anti-gun legislation. And I pointed out that it seems that hundreds of thousands of Connecticut’s gun owners are simply refusing to obey the new registration laws.

Now the Hartford Courant is noting the same discrepancy I wrote about weeks ago.

The state’s biggest paper noted that the nearly 50 thousand new registrations of so-called assault weapons is only 15 percent of the guns estimated by authorities to be in the hands of citizens.

Now businesses will have to go hat in hand to Obama to explain themselves about why they are firing any particular employee. This is just another of Obama’s steps toward the fascist-styled control by Washington bureaucrats over the entirety of the business sector.

As Fox News reported it: “Obama officials made clear in a press briefing that firms would not be allowed to lay off workers to get into the preferred class of those businesses with 50 to 99 employees. How will the feds know what employers were thinking when hiring and firing? Simple. Firms will be required to certify to the IRS – under penalty of perjury – that ObamaCare was not a motivating factor in their staffing decisions. To avoid ObamaCare costs you must swear that you are not trying to avoid ObamaCare costs. You can duck the law, but only if you promise not to say so.”

Here is what friend and candidate for Congress Dan Bongino said of all this…

Senator Dick Durbin Lies With Impunity

Senator Dick Durbin is at it again, lying through his teeth, this time about Obamacare. On Sunday’s Meet The Press, Illinois Democrat Durbin made the wild-eyed claim that ten million Americans found new health insurance thanks to Obamacare. He also claimed that Obamacare would lower the deficit. But even the Washington Post gave its worst rating to Durbin’s lies.

As the discussion shifted to healthcare during the Feb. 5 broadcast, host Bob Schieffer lamented that Obamacare is still confusing everyone and asked Durbin if there is “any hope of getting it straightened out”?

Durbin lied with his very first words.

“Bob, let’s look at the bottom line. The bottom line is this. Ten million Americans have health insurance today who would not have had it without the Affordable Care Act–10 million.”

Then he lied about the deficit:

Watch This Guy Brilliantly Satirize Our Useless, Nanny State Governments

February 10, 2014 | Filed Under Budget, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Government, Government Corruption, Liberals, Nanny State, Policy, Progressives, Taxes, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

An effete representative from Citizens For A Really Safe Ashland–and we know he’s effete because he has a waxed mustache and an ascot–has a message for us all. It’s a message of great import, one that will help everyone keep us all safe. It’s for the children, you know?

I don’t know who this fellow is, but his dry wit brilliantly skewers our useless, nanny state government interlopers who constantly issue decree after liberty destroying decree to justify their existence.

If I ever find out who this guy is, I’ll update this post. But, as it is this guy’s work is simply fantastic.

Imperial President’s Newest Lawbreaking: Violating Trademark Laws

January 31, 2014 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Budget, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Economy/Finances, Entitlements, Ethics, Government Corruption, Law, Liberals, Policy, President, Progressives, Regulation, Taxes, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

With his introduction of his new (and useless) MyRA investment program, we discover that President Obama is so dismissive of following the law, he doesn’t even think that he has to abide by trademark and copyright laws.

A law abiding entrepreneur has one chore to satisfy before launching a new ad campaign, product, or offering and that is to search the trademark and copyright lists to make sure he isn’t stealing someone else’s intellectual property. But not if you’re president, apparently. No if you’re Barack Obama you can steal someone’s trademarked name with impunity.

During his low-rated, re-warmed State of the Union speech, President Obama proudly unveiled his new investment idea to the nation. He called it the “MyRA.”

Benghazi Transcripts Prove Obama Lied That ‘Youtube Video’ Caused Benghazi Attacks

-By Warner Todd Huston

The phrase “Obama lied, people died” should ring out from every corner of the country now that we know 100% for sure that Obama knew full well that no “anti-Muslim Youtube video” caused the attacks in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans. Obama knew as it was happening that it was a terror attack but lied to America anyway.

Fox News recently uncovered a stash of documents that proves beyond doubt that Obama and his advisers knew just after the attacks began that it was terrorism.

Fox News correspondent James Rosen reported on January 14 that 450 pages of sworn testimony by America’s highest ranking military officers makes the case clearly about what the administration knew and when it was known.
