The Loons are Running the Asylum
We permit the indoctrination of our children in schools into the leftist agenda of globalism, environmentalism, diversity, socialism, and communism
Thursday, December 8, 2011
We have always had crazy people, citizens lacking common sense, the misinformed, the ignorant, the purposeful deceptive, but we never used to put them in charge, until now. We are turning into europameristan because we think, it is not happening yet in our own back yards, neighborhoods, or towns.
We shake our heads in disbelief, joke about it, talk about it, write about it, while we are losing ground every day to a minority fringe bent on destroying everything around us and installing their ideas of civilized society: anarchy, socialism, Marxism, fascism, and Islamism.
Small areas of the country that do not represent America elect politicians like Barbara Boxer who make damaging policy for the rest of the country. She said yesterday, “Climate deniers in this country are endangering humankind.” In reality, the global warming hoax group is purposefully trying to destroy our economy by imposing United Nations mandated taxes on the United States, taxes earmarked for third world dictatorships.
Boxer tried unsuccessfully to pass cap and trade last year after bullying Roy Spencer during his testimony on cap and trade. “She did not allow him to finish any sentence that she did not want to hear. She displayed no tact, class, or understanding of the scientific issues, making trite and embarrassing comments of a global warming cheerleader.”
We allow Occupiers to create chaos, filth, disease, and destruction in our cities in the name of democracy in action, freedom of speech, and political correctness. They want anarchy, chaos, drugs, unions, free trade, no borders, free food, free housing, free school, free cars, free gasoline, free day care, free clothes, free perennial vacations, and free health care, all paid for by the producing “evil capitalists.”
We allow mainstream media to guide and control everything in this country because they know best what is good for the rest of the United States: socialism and Marxism.
We permit the indoctrination of our children in schools into the leftist agenda of globalism, environmentalism, diversity, socialism, and communism.
We allow third world dictatorships at the United Nations to control our land, water, and energy use via UN Agenda 21 and carbon credit tax in the name of social justice necessitated by a faux man-made global warming.
The head master of a second grade school in the U.K. cuts off the heat to an entire primary school during the coldest day in December to assuage his environmental guilt over his carbon footprint. The temperatures dipped to 1 degree Celsius while students shivered and were unable to perform their tasks. Parents were furious that this man chose to “save the planet” at the expense of their children’s misery.
Al Gore, politicians, the rich Marxist advocates and communism-loving Hollywood fire up their jets or taxpayer provided jets to go on shopping sprees, vacations, and other leisurely activities with total disregard for pollution or their carbon footprint. Yet we are expected and forced to alter our life styles fundamentally in order to fit into their agenda of rolling back life to middle ages.
The globalists invented the measurement of carbon footprint and water footprint for the masses but the oligarchs in power are exempted from such life style changes. They can pollute away. Entire countries can stop their economic activities and it would barely nullify a few days of China’s polluting industries.
We allow the federal government to replace parents and parental responsibilities. Detroit schools want to remain open during the Christmas holidays with the stated purpose to offer three meals a day to students and food baskets to their families. We do have food stamp programs in place and food banks, we do not need to keep schools open at great taxpayer expense. It is absolute insanity!
We allow TSA to dehumanize and humiliate us at airports in the name of air travel safety, an idea developed by progressives to better control mass transit. If we refuse the highly intrusive scanners, total strangers who seem to enjoy their newfound power are eager to molest us during pat downs.
“Sen. Susan Collins on Wednesday blasted the Defense Department for classifying the Fort Hood massacre as workplace violence and suggested political correctness is being placed above the security of the nation’s Armed Forces at home.” We allow voter fraud, political corruption, and squandering of our Treasury in the name of fairness, equity, social justice, and re-distribution of wealth. We are shamed and bullied into believing that protesting the corruption makes us bigots and racists.
Bernanke just acknowledged that the Fed “loaned” $7.7 trillion to banks in 2008. Congress had “no idea to whom these loans were made.” Bernanke claimed that he “saved the world from total catastrophe.”
We are allowing the destruction of the best healthcare in the world, making the U.S. into the socialist utopia in which thousands of people will die untreated because of rationing of care, disregard for human life, gross negligence, and government malpractice.
Only in an insane world would people believe that adding 30 million more patients to the health care pool would make medical care better.
Only in a utopian world makes sense to bankrupt a country in order to fund socialized health care that is a disaster anywhere else it has been tried or is currently used.
The sane majority is allowing the fringe minority to dictate how we live, eat, drink, travel, worship, and ultimately what and how we think.
Only a deliberately blind populace would commit cultural, religious, political, and economic suicide by allowing a Marxist minority to control 306 million people with political correctness and lawlessness.
The current regime has destroyed jobs, homes, investments, and health care, yet the President is still the only one who can save us? How many more radical activists can we afford to put on the judicial bench in the next four years? How many more progressives can we afford to put on the Supreme Court in the next presidential term?
Our President is criticizing the Internet as a job killer in banking and phone industries, trying to excoriate the economic sector for the lack of job creation under his watch. People understand that Congress and Obama’s policies have caused the severe economic downturn. There is no denying it. He should know that Internet activity accounts for 21 percent of GDP growth.
The class warfare intensifies with the tired rhetoric that the rich must pay their fair share in taxes. “T. Boone Pickens has paid $665 million in income taxes since age 70.” Forty-seven percent of the population does not pay any federal taxes yet receive earned income tax credit. How much more something for nothing should they get?
If you do not own stock in a corporation, why do you care how much the stockholders decide to pay their “fat cats?” They are not responsible for your financial problems. You may have made poor choices in life. You may have chosen to drop out of school, or you may have chosen unwisely education in fields that are not employable. It is not the corporate world’s fault for your unlucky choices. Politicians are at fault because they made the laws, funded them, and accepted campaign contributions from corporations.
People are weary of the tired out excuse that Obama inherited everything from Bush. George Bush’s economic policies set a record of fifty plus months of job creation. Bush asked Congress 17 times, starting in 2001, to stop Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac because it was financially risky for the U.S. economy.
On January 3, 2007 the Democrats took over the Senate and Congress. On that day, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 12,621.77, the GDP growth was at 3.5 percent, and the unemployment rate was 4.5 percent. Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services
Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee. Fifteen months later we had an economic meltdown in the Banking and Financial Services.
Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee. Fifteen months later we had an economic meltdown in the Banking and Financial Services.
Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and they still have not passed a budget. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Obama took office. In 2009 they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the budget.
“The deficit Democrats did inherit was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets, the lowest deficit in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending.” Since Obama was an Illinois Senator, he should say, “I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four times since my inauguration, to the highest level in U.S. history.”
There is organized and well-planned chaos coming from all directions at unrelenting speed. I am not sure how much longer this country can survive at this rate of insanity. We have become a threadbare carpet held together by very thin strings, threatening to break at any moment if we do not handle it gently. The sane majority must prevail.

Escaping an Invisible, Chainless Slavery!
Communism, Fascism, Marxism and Socialism: Systems of sharing, Systems of stealing
Monday, December 5, 2011
While the OWS idiocy is ebbing, we are still under attack from those within our borders and our government who seek our demise. Due to both parents having served in WWII, I grew up realizing how damning Communism, Fascism, Marxism and Socialism are on the masses of those burdened and restricted under these ‘isms.’
Living through the days of bomb shelters and the Cold War, I never thought American citizens would seriously seek to introduce any of these ‘isms’ within the U. S., but there are those who are working ever more openly towards that end. When are patriots going to realize that many of those in power seek to impose slavery upon the producers and the lemming masses, an invisible, chainless slavery?
These ‘isms’ are promoted as systems of sharing, when they are actually systems of stealing. With our election system offering the stability of returning the unstable to office, many of the unstable begin to see themselves above those they take an oath to serve. Self-appointed, self-serving despots steal people’s money via an insane and punitive tax system that rewards the despots who impose onerous legislation and the benefactors of these despots. The despots inflict policies designed to exert control over those they boast to serve. As the despots misuse the masses’ money and manipulate their choices, people’s freedoms, based upon finances and choices, are stolen. Because these ‘isms’ supersede religious faith, traditional, faith-based morals are attacked, even outlawed, extinguishing faith and hope. Ultimately, the gates of Hell are opened, and Satan is able to sweep in to steal people’s souls? Isn’t this his all-consuming goal?
The despots of these ‘isms’ do not exist in a vacuum. Just as the mob has its made-men/button-men, the tyrants amongst us who are imposing their form of tyranny have their lieutenants who pluck the malleable, low hanging, malcontent and uniformed fruits of society who buy into their fraud and lies. There is always just enough truth embedded within their fraud and lies to attract those seeking something for nothing. Social justice is an example of this form of deceit, and many religions have bought into the lies promoted through social justice. The malcontents aren’t willing to act for themselves, so they follow the devious tyrants who use them for their own selfish ends. In reality, invisible chains hold back all but those who make and impose draconian laws, similar to the legal lawlessness under which we are now living!
American Socialist/Communist reality rely upon the naïveté of the masses
Additionally, the despots of the emerging American Socialist/Communist reality rely upon the naïveté of the
And there is a special enmity reserved for those in the QE media who prop up the lies and fraud pushed by the tyrants amongst us. They have devolved into ‘gangster ’ganda gossips’ who have abdicated their responsibility of informing the public of a government that is frightfully out of control.
If these ‘isms’ were so beneficial for the masses wherever they have been imposed, these countries should be magnets for the malcontents of the world. When has there been a mass migration to Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, China, etc.? How many generations removed are we from WWII and the many sacrifices of so many to save the world from the advancement of the enslaving ‘isms?’ What has been (and is being) taught within our educational system that fosters the acceptance of the imposition of an invisible, chainless slavery within the borders of the free and the brave?
Capitalism does not force the masses into a form of dehumanizing, chainless slavery
Capitalism is far from a perfect system, and there are cheaters in every system, but it is the one ‘ism’ that does not force the masses into a form of dehumanizing, chainless slavery. It is true that within the capitalist system, the rich get richer. They move about within the same circles, they have access to expertise, and they have the money to make mistakes and rebound that the average person does not have. The rich should not be under attack within the capitalist system; they should be studied for their success and engaged for their expertise. Only capitalism allows people from all levels of society to pursue a vision and a dream with resolve to improve their stations in life, and the overall quality of life of society, because it is the only ‘ism’ that fosters an environment for invention and innovation from throughout society.
We are one election away from losing the greatest gift our Creator has given mankind in the form of governance as a way of fostering personal and societal growth. As a system of governance based upon Judeo-Christian morals and ethics, our country has become the envy of the world. Why are we abandoning what has given us the opportunity to enjoy financial and spiritual growth? If we are a true, two-party political system, the GOP must offer candidates for political office who are polar-opposites of the Democrats. Otherwise, the walls built at our borders will be to imprison citizens seeking asylum beyond our borders, not protecting our borders from those who seek to enter our country illegally. New Year’s Day is a Holy Day within the Catholic faith because it is a day for spiritual renewal, looking forward. 2012 provides us the opportunity for genuine renewal to re-engage with God! Let’s make it a truly Happy New Year on November 6, 2012, by electing servant leaders to public office, blunting the Progressive blitzkrieg, and leading to an even happier, more prosperous and thankful New Year in 2013!*******

April 4, 2011
In Kenneth Teitelbaum’s Schooling for “Good Rebels”: Socialist Education for Children in the United States, 1900-1920, he describes the formation of 100 “Socialist Sunday Schools” (SSS) "in 64 cities and towns in various parts of the country, and with probably more than ten thousand children attending between 1900 and 1920." These SSS included children from 5 to 14 years of age, and usually met for about two hours on Sunday mornings.
The purpose of the SSS was “to contest more directly the overly individualistic, competitive, nationalistic, militaristic… themes prevalent in contemporary public schools and other social institutions,” and help in “supplanting capitalist social and economic relations with a more equitable and cooperative form,” namely Socialism. Interestingly, in the latter part of the 20th century, Outcome-Based Education (OBE) would emphasize the group over the individual, cooperative learning over competition, global perspectives increasingly and nationalism less, peacekeeping over militarism, and equity over superiority.
The strategy of the SSS followed that of revolutionary Antonio Gramsci, in that hegemony would be attained via the people’s consent rather than by force. The people would gradually adopt Socialism voluntarily via a “process” (like OBE), and the result would be a “Cooperative Commonwealth.” The SSS were allied with the Intercollegiate Socialist Society (ISS), which would be renamed the League for Industrial Democracy in 1921 and have “progressive” educator John Dewey as its president in 1940-41 (OBE is based on “progressive education” principles).
The ISS in the U.S. was related to the Fabian Socialists of Britain, and British influence upon the ISS was significant. The Fabians’ motto was “Educate, Agitate, Organize,” and these were the same principles followed by American radical Saul Alinsky, who is admired by Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama. Shortly after Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals (with an acknowledgment to Lucifer at the front) was published, Ronald and Mary Havelock’s Training for Change Agents was published in 1973 with portions developed under a federal Office of Education contract. In this latter book is described the activities of “The Advocator-Organizer-Agitator” and the “Social Architect” change agents. And in the Spring of 1974, the federal Office of Education gave a grant of $5.9 million for 500 “change agents” to be trained at 21 institutions of higher education around the U.S.
In the 1970s, Marc Tucker would become an associate director of the National Institute of Education within the federal Office of Education, and in 1985 he would become president of the Carnegie Forum (now National Center) on Education and the Economy (NCEE). The NCEE would have Hillary Clinton on its board.
Hillary Clinton’s activism in “progressive education” was not unlike the activism of Socialist women in the early part of this past century, as many of the SSS were initiated by women activists. For example, a Socialist women’s club began the SSS in Rochester, N.Y. on October 2, 1920 at the Socialist Party headquarters. Interestingly, in the 1980s, NCEE virtually took over the Rochester public school system with the result being that on May 7, 1995, Rochester’s Democrat and Chronicle reported that “Forty percent of ninth-graders don’t make it through high school. Fewer graduates attain the state’s more stringent Regents diploma. Most middle and high school test scores remained flat or declined. Teams of administrators, teachers and parents formed to improve schools often didn’t work well together…. Middle schools, created to cater to the needs of early adolescents, are large, chaotic, and occasionally, violent. ‘We have failed,’ said Mayor William A. Johnson, Jr.”
When Rochester’s SSS began, “The Red Flag” was sung, and Superintendent Kendrick Shedd later wrote: “We were to inspire the young… to be good Socialists.” A few years later, he said “the kids are learning to be good rebels,” which would pay off in fifteen years, “when the revolution shall have waxed very hot.” There was a strong German Socialist community in Rochester in the early 20th century.
In a November 11, 1992 letter to Hillary Clinton, NCEE president Marc Tucker wrote: “We propose that Bill [Clinton] take a leaf out of the German book. One of the most important reasons that large German employers offer apprenticeship slots to German youngsters is that they fear, with good reason, that if they don’t volunteer to do so, the law will require it. Bill could… do the same…. Radical changes in attitudes, values, and beliefs are required to move any combination of these agendas.” Remember the earlier statement about the SSS following Gramsci’s model for “voluntary” acceptance of hegemony.
Superintendent Shedd’s philosophy included an element of Fabianism as well as Marxism. And similar to Hillary
Clinton’s “It Takes a Village to Raise a Child” philosophy, Shedd wrote in 1914 that in addition to his own three children, he also had about “two or three thousand that are also my own, although I am not their real father.” Socialists believe that children belong not just to parents but to the entire society!
In 1911, Shedd had addressed a crowd in Auburn, New York, and was supportive of atheism while being critical of American patriotism, and he indicated that the flag of internationalism was greater than the flag of an individual nation. At his Rochester school, students were taught to be “comrades,” and there was a series of Red Rebel Lessons.
In the Spring of 1915, Shedd went to Milwaukee to organize SSS. Milwaukee had a Socialist mayor, and the superintendent of one of the three SSS formed by Shedd was Rhodes Scholar Carl Haessler (Cecil Rhodes funded the Rhodes scholarships and had formed a secret society “to take the government of the whole world”). The general theme of Milwaukee’s SSS curriculum for 1917-1918 was “cooperation in everyday life,” with lessons that included “being world citizens.” (Barack Obama also called himself a “citizen of the world.”) Large flags of internationalism were spread over the children, who were told, “When we are world citizens, all marching under the banner of international peaceful Socialism, our ignorant nationalistic boastfulness will give way to helpful and enlightened co-operation with other nations.”
Lessons also included that students should know that Karl Marx said “Workers of the world, unite.” The SSS curriculum emphasized “collectivism, internationalism, and interdependence,” and looked forward to the day when there would be “one fatherland” for everyone.
In 1916, Lenin said, “The aim of socialism is the elimination of the fragmentation of humanity in petty states and the individualism of nations—not only the coming closer of nations to each other, but their merger or fusion.”
In 1953, Ford Foundation president H. Rowan Gaither informed a Congressional committee research director, Norman Dodd, that at the executive level of the Foundation, “We are continuing to be guided by such directives [from the White House]…. The substance [of these directives] was to the effect that we should make every effort to make possible a comfortable merger with the Soviet Union.”
And the same year (1985) in which the Carnegie Forum on Education and the Economy began (with Marc Tucker as president), the Carnegie Corporation negotiated the Soviet-American Exchange Agreement, which allowed Soviet educators to participate in the development of curriculum materials to be used in some American schools.
The curriculum of the SSS in the early part of this century also taught evolution, and advised students to “not believe that which is contrary to reason” (e.g., religious faith in creation). Today, evolution is promoted by the government schools, and humanistic values have replaced Biblical ones in lessons taught there. In the SSS, students were told: “Be as grateful to your teacher as to your parents.” And today’s progressive educators” see themselves as “partners” with parents in the upbringing of children. The SSS curriculum taught students to take “a generally critical approach toward everyday social life,” and today’s “progressive educators” advocate “critical thinking” for students. The SSS curriculum also included an “anti-militarism” theme, which is similar to today’s “progressive educators” promoting world disarmament.
As “progressive educators” seem to be moving us closer and closer toward a World Socialist Government today, it is noteworthy to look at the parallels between what is occurring in government schools at present (e.g., OBE, “School-To-Work” programs, etc.) and the SSS at the beginning of the 20th century.
