The United States will not reverse its descent into the abyss of financial and societal bankruptcy until the current political and governing establishment is replaced. That will not happen until the American people, who have been deliberately ill-educated and deceived, experience first-hand the early stages of the turmoil and suffering extant in Europe and elsewhere. While professing to care for the interests of the average person, the underlying motivation for the vast majority of the governing class or Establishment is first and foremost self-aggrandizement and the acquisition of wealth.
Comments: I tend to agree with the writer. There are a lot of people who do not believe bad things can happen to them until they do.
A rational assessment of USA today. The long overdue wake-up call will not come, as we thought, from conservatives, it will come from the inevitable disaster(s) brought upon us by the Democrats and their craven enablers in the GOP. But disaster it will be, in His 2nd term.
Dead solid perfect analysis, especially this last part, which solidifies the notion that this has all been done deliberately:
The United States finds itself in a circumstance once thought unthinkable. An ill-educated and near morally bankrupt society increasingly made up of those dependent on government combined with a governing class whose primary interest is themselves. The nation cannot, therefore, make any meaningful course correction unless and until the people finally understand they have been lied to and conned by the current establishment. That will, in all likelihood, not occur until America faces imminent collapse and the citizenry turns on those who brought the nation to its knees.
And to the good people who still are saying, "it can´t happen here", stick around. Better still, leave while you still can.
Definitely a Must Read. A brilliant analysis of the confederacy of dunces, revolutionaries, and remoras on both sides who have collectively brought this great nation to its demise. And please note that he has correctly concluded that we are not just heading for bankruptcy, we are already there. There is no way we can extricate ourselves from the massive debt (correctly pegged at 222 trillion, not 16 trillion!) that we are now facing.
It will all collapse, as the Obamunists have planned all along. There will be blood. The only remaining question really is who will emerge on top after the collapse and coming violence.
Washington breaks the very laws they enforce on US! That´s NOT ´illegal" plunder which is bad; that´s "legal" plunder which is even worse!
To better understand this difference please visit [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Law_(1850_book)] and become familiar with "The Law", a book written in 1850 by the French writer Frederic Bastiat.
In The Law, Bastiat states that "each of us has a natural right — from God — to defend his person, his liberty, and his property". The State is a "substitution of a common force for individual forces" to defend this right. The law becomes perverted when it punishes one´s right to self-defense in favor of another´s acquired right to plunder.
Washington has perverted the Law. They refuse to audit the Fed. They refuse to audit the Federal Government. They refuse to be transparant in fund raising.
They pit the young against the old. They pit race against race. They pit men against women. They pit one faith against another faith. They pit one class against another class.
They claim our wages as their money. The last paragraph is the best.
Before we rise again, we have to hit bottom first. We are almost there!
Not according to CNBC. All the pundits and hosts see better housing,black Friday huge, cyber Monday huge, slow but sure recovery,and with even a rumor of "rise above" a stock market just waiting to go to 17,000 This is the classic next quarter thinking in America. How did we get so stupid.
Ignorant people of the past learned only from experience which was often painful: war, disease, famine, etc.
Education, especially studies of history and economics, was/is supposed to be a substitute for such experience. One did not need to touch a hot stove to know it would produce a burn.
But when education fails - or is sabotaged - we are back to experience as the only teacher.
Despite our technology and vast stores of the most minute data, we are returning to an intellectual dark age where people believe the government tends a money tree orchard; that the person attempting to run a business, offer goods for sale and possibly offer you a job is an evil, thieving SOB.
We now have millions raised in a cocoon of self-esteem and instant gratification convinced that government is a force for good and that individual rights are a hindrance.
This writer hits the "nail on the head". Unlike the leadership in Germany working hard to save the Euro, the "governing class" in this country has no intention of solving any problems. It is political game time as usual.
...if the GOP would produce a conservative candidate that could articulate these truths, I have to believe that we would have won this last election. It´s time for a candidate to make the presidential election a referendum on liberalism, the government, and the media.
Dead on analysis from Mr. McCann, but I fear his last conclusion could be wrong. As things collapse around them the same hoard of dummies who elected and re-elected this communist scumbucket may cling to him all the more tightly, their ignorance and psychological investment in him being as ingrained as they are. At least, that is what Obama and his Cloward-Piven disciples are counting on.
Nice analysis until the last paragraph, which is a fantasy. McCann makes the case in the article that the populace has been propagandized and dumbed-down instead of educated, as well as having become morally corrupt. The most likely result when disaster hits is, then, that they will turn on the usual scapegoats rather than those who brought the country to its knees.
It´s the absolute truth. He is right about the Tea Party. I did not fully realize the moral rot at the core of my own party until the Tea Party candidates swept the 2010 midterms. The "party" apparatus works WITH the media and Democrats to destroy conservatives with real star potential. They have no intention of EVER allowing a true conservative RR to ever get the nomination again.
Global average temperature has been flat for a decade. But frightening myths about global warming continue. We’re told there are more hurricanes now. We’re told that hurricanes are stronger. But the National Hurricane Center says it isn’t so. Meteorologist Maria Molina told me it’s not surprising that climatologists assumed hurricanes would get worse. “Hurricanes need warm ocean waters,” but it turns out that “hurricanes are a lot more complicated than just warm ocean waters.” Computer models have long predicted nasty effects from our production of greenhouse gasses. But the nasty effects have not appeared. As far as hurricanes, more hit the United States
Blue-collar workers, especially those connected with labor unions who mine coal, drill for oil and gas, build pipelines, and toil in all those related areas of genuine economic activity, must be appalled. Barack Obama won re-election largely on the willingness of those types of unions to put aside their doubts about his real commitment to economic growth and to turn out by a two-to-one margin for him. That was decisive in states with large industrial unions: Ohio (18 electoral votes), Pennsylvania (20 electoral votes), Iowa (6 electoral votes), New Hampshire (4 electoral votes), and Wisconsin (10 electoral votes).
Yesterday we watched Senator Claire McCaskill’s fantastical view of the world. Today, I offer you the perpetually unhinged Alan Grayson, who gives us his take on Paul Ryan’s budget: “In one case after another, you look at his principles, you look at his vision, and they’re a nightmare for America. He wants Americans to work until they die, he wants poor people who get sick not be able to see a doctor, not to get the care they need, not to get better, he wants them to die,
Like the proverbial monkey typing for infinity and getting Shakespeare, Mayor Bloomberg’s obsession with reforming New Yorkers’ health has finally produced a brilliant ad campaign. Posters are popping up in subway stations and bus stops giving statistics about teen pregnancy that show cute little kids saying things like, “Honestly, Mom … chances are he won’t stay with you. What happens to me?” and “I’m twice as likely not to graduate high school because you had me as a teen.”
A meticulous new analysis examines the benefits of government-administered socialism among a representative cross section of individuals. It is an insightful departure from the usual studies of socialism that analyze only collective benefits to society using statistics about such things as income quartiles and poverty levels. The new study is 27 pages and can be accessed as a PDF file via this link. As its author, I´ll summarize the results here. Julia, the president´s comic book heroine, is used as the baseline.
Pravda, Guns & America (AT, Jan. 11) quoted a Russian who advises: Americans: Never Give Up Your Guns, citing the bloody and tragic result of the Communists´ confiscation of arms after they came to power in 1917. The quotation has been echoing around the Internet, so here are more ringing defenses of the importance of the right to bear arms to the cause of liberty. Another Russian, the great writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn, wrote about the Soviet Union in The Gulag Archipelago (p.13, note 5): And how we burned in the camps later,
We are being played; it´s time we learned the game. Conservatives have their Constitution. Progressives have their Narrative. The current battle for America is between these two concepts, and each side uses different rules to fight it. One set of rules is consistent with an unchanging objective: limited government and individual freedoms. The other side´s rules are as fickle as their goals, which are never fully disclosed beyond the equivocal references to fairness and hyphenated forms of justice.
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
Fox News host Megyn Kelly has made herself the center of a racial controversy by declaring that Jesus Christ and Santa Claus are white. On Wednesday night, Kelly was responding to an article by Slate writer Aisha Harris, who wrote an article entitled “ Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore .” The popular news host told viewers of “The Kelly File,” her hit FNC program, “When I saw this headline, I kinda laughed and I said, ‘Oh, this is ridiculous. Yet another person claiming it´s racist to have a white Santa.’ And by the way, for all you kids
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
Columnist Charles Krauthammer attacked new Obamacare rules unveiled by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a late Thursday conference call, saying the Obama administration is “approach[ing] banana republic lawlessness” by issuing the decrees. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’ Bret Baier on a panel with Juan Williams and Judge Andrew Napolitano, as the three reacted to Sebelius’ new directives for insurance companies. “This is exactly a reaction to a deep understanding among Democrats that [Obamacare] is a train wreck,” he said. “And it’s a panic reaction. As the judge said, this is utterly lawless. This now approaches banana republic lawlessness.
THE Internet has been abuzz over the spectacle of President Obama and the prime ministers of Britain and Denmark snapping a photo of themselves — a “selfie,” to use the mot du jour — with a smartphone at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela in South Africa on Tuesday. Leaving aside whether it was appropriate, the moment captured the democratization of image making that is a hallmark of our gadget-filled, technologically rich era. Manifestly undemocratic, in contrast, is the way Mr. Obama’s administration — in hypocritical defiance of the principles of openness and transparency he campaigned on — has systematically tried
