Reversing America´s Decline
American Thinker, by Jared E. Peterson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 11/27/2012 9:23:50 AM

The ongoing and not-so-gradual loss of American Civilization is the result of two related phenomena: the invasion of our country from the southern border, and our elites´ culture of self-loathing that oozed out of the noxious slime of the 60´s. Western Europe is rapidly losing its own civilization for identical reasons (with invaders more poisonous than America´s, and its own reproductive decadence, thrown in to expedite the process). The first phenomenon -- the invasions -- wouldn´t be happening in either place had they not been preceded by the second

I am afraid that it is irreversible. Ignorance can be remedied, stupidity can´t. Institutional stupidity is now the new normal. All civilizations collapse, and so will ours. That time is fast approaching.

Pat Buchanon sounded the alarm on the erosion of American greatness in his 1992 campaign and the books that have followed.

Any culture has an absorbtion rate for new arrivals.

The faux sophistication of the coasts and to some extent, the moral corruption that accompanies wealth and elitism have resulted in a disdain for the values that accompanied this nation at its zenith; we are either at a nadir or the end of our run.

It wouldn´t kill us to get back to Church on a regular basis.

I am not a parent. Watching two-children families, one has to wonder how we got it so wrong that offspring hate the niceties we gave them growing up that they took for granted. These young psuedo-enviormentalist accuse US of wanton pollution as they wrangle to have the keys for the SUV.

In the end, it is our fault for not spending more quality time as parents, paying attention to school system they attend, and giving them a moral compass to follow.

Knowing the future is tough. I don´t agree that the high immigration from the south is poisonous. I agree that we hurt ourselves by mismanaging it.

The absorption rate premise is a tool, a way of studying a process. The rate limit is not knowable, no magic calculation exists.

Our policy of discouraging assimilation by immigrants has been madness. We end up with large neighborhoods of one ethnicity where life is no different from the African or Asian locale where the immigrants came from.

We might as well divide the US into a thousand or ten thousand tribal reservations having nothing in common.

I regard Washington as a process too. A failed one that increasingly drains any good from the remainder of the nation.

Our masters in the Imperial City prosper now as never before. Meanwhile the rest of the nation struggles and staggers. Yet the population fails to draw the logical conclusion.

Yes we need to go back to church; yes we need to get involved in our schools; yes we need to support our founding principles as in a strong military. If churches are not teaching the complete doctrines from studying in Greek & Hebrew they will teach incorrect doctrine, do good to get to Heaven & give boy scout "I love everyione" messages. If parents do not teach manners,morals & principles at home & marry the opposite sex the children will wander lost. If schools do not teach our wonderful history correctly children will never know what FREEDOM they really enjoy. God will not put up with this crap - even history should teach the stupid brainwashed sheep by example. II Chronicles 7:14

A thousand times YES. One of the best articles I´ve read in some time. There was a time when we had the backbone to stand up for ourselves, and the article mentions some of the great battles in Europe that preserved our culture. Today, we would not be able to defend ourselves against a new threat, simply because we´ve become our own enemies. Political correctness, multi-culturalism , and leftist indoctrination in the schools has effectively neutered us. Although its late in the 4th quarter and we´re way behind, the game is not over and we can still pull out a miracle and reassert ourselves again.

The Three Christs of Obamanism
American Thinker, by James Lewis    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 1/18/2014 9:22:59 AM     Post Reply
I start with an apology to faithful Christians who believe in one Christ the Savior. This column is not about religion, but about a classical psychological study of three mental patients in Ypsilanti, Michigan, each of whom believed he was the true Christ. The study appeared in 1964, called The Three Christs of Ypsilanti. (snip) False prophets are typically megalomaniacs, but they are also charismatic, so they can persuade others to validate their deadly fantasies. Jim Jones was one. We have seen others. False prophets often bring mass tragedy in their wake. Or, to put it differently, there is hardly a

Obama´s NSA Speech: More mush

Yesterday, President Obama delivered a speech to an audience at the Justice Department on NSA telephone spying that, in typical fashion, said very little of substance but sounded nice until you paid attention. Almost every change announced included a backdoor that vitiated any substantial change. (snip) Obama is behaving like a tyrant, but doing it sneakily, with the connivance of a mainstream media that refuses to present to their audience the alarming stories of what is really going on. The low information majority is blissfully unaware that the organs of state power are being mobilized to suppress Obama´s political opponents. In

Students against diversity

Did you hear about the students at a famous university who have gotten upset because a member of a small racial minority there was pictured in an ad directed at the student body? For some reason, the national media doesn't find this anti-diversity position of much interest. However, local media have the story. WTOP-TV Washington reports: A Giant grocery store ad welcoming back Howard University students from winter break has rankled the Howard community because the ad pictured a young, white female. The vast majority of students at Howard, a historically black university, are African-American.

Poverty, White Privilege

The poor whites of Appalachia may have become unfashionable, but they have not gone anywhere. The current political left´s obsession with both income inequality and so called White Privilege overlooks a lot of history. How quickly does the left forget. Or perhaps it is more a matter of fashion. In 1964, when LBJ declared his War on Poverty, the area he mentioned by name was not the urban ghettos of Detroit, Watts or Harlem but rather the isolated rural counties of Eastern Kentucky. Four years later, in 1968, Bobby Kennedy decided to run for the presidency mere days after touring

Jahi McMath is Alive

The case of Jahi McMath brings up numerous critical bioethical issues, especially as we are going into period of health care rationing and fewer choices in our medical care.(snip) In the wake of early enthusiasm for heart transplantation, "brain death" legislation was passed in the 1970´s in all fifty states in the USA, to allow for death to be declared by neurological criteria, rather than the cessation of cardiac activity. This permits surgeons to remove hearts from "brain dead" donors and not be charged with homicide. Despite claims that there has never been a case of a person diagnosed with

As the Iran sanctions bill gains bipartisan and expansive support in the Senate, the Obama White House is in panic mode.(snip)But while Obama is putting all of the pressure on Democrats to side with him (and Iran) on this issue, he may also be setting up a fall guy if the mullahs do indeed walk away from the table or if they fail to meet their obligations under an interim deal. The Soros-funded and Obama surrogate Moveon.org has begun a new fundraising campaign labeling the proposed legislation "AIPAC´s war bill." While co-sponsored by 16 Democrats including Senators Schumer and Menendez, Moveon.org

Liberal self-congratulation: hilarious,
sad, and a little frightening
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 1/12/2014 9:51:54 AM     Post Reply
A new breed of website has sprung up, powered by social media, in which liberals congratulate themselves, and attempt to provide spiritual instruction on improving the world through their ideology. (snip) many people find the discipline of genuine religions daunting, unpleasant, and a general buzz-kill. Liberalism offers hedonism and self-congratulation in place of genuine contact with the numinous. It may not have any depth to it, but for those inclined to reject everything that came from their forbearers´ world, convinced that they have found a better, or at least a more pleasant approach to life, liberalism is a decent crutch.

In 2012, the city of Omaha unfathomably accounted for nearly 80% of Nebraska´s homicides. Over the years, that harrowing statistic has remained consistent, with most of the murders disproportionately occurring in north Omaha, which is primarily black. Although blacks are only 13.7% of Omaha´s population, Omaha.com reported: [O]maha´s streets in recent years have become among the deadliest places in America for blacks.(snip)When Omaha´s police chief, Todd Schmaderer, was asked to speculate on why an overwhelming majority of Nebraska´s homicides were clustered in north Omaha, he responded, "I don´t see what purpose that serves." In other words, political correctness trumps public

Establishing a U.S. State Religion
American Thinker, by Fay Voshell    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 1/10/2014 9:46:04 AM     Post Reply
In direct contradiction of the First Amendment, which forbids the establishing of a state religion, the Obama administration is busily doing just that. Meanwhile, it is attempting forced conversion of the reluctant, all the while targeting Christians and Orthodox Jews as people who are continually violating the establishment of religion clause. Just what religion is our current administration establishing in direct violation of the Constitution of the United States? It is establishing the faith of secular statism, a religion currently characterized by the tenets of radical progressivism. Statism is rapidly becoming the only faith in America allowed to operate with complete freedom.

Logic Gets Sucked into

There is a new bogeyman in town. His name is Polar Vortex. He has been around forever, and has hitherto lived in obscurity as just another natural phenomenon. But against all odds, he has suddenly found satisfying new employment and fame as this year´s leading argument for tyranny. North America is presently experiencing the kind of abnormally cold temperatures that can wreak havoc on computer climate models. (The same cold snap is not occurring in other parts of the Northern Hemisphere, hence the value of polar vortex as a wandering catch-all Scary Thing, as we shall see.) The mainstream media is

The Holder Effect

In spite of the best efforts of the liberal media to first suppress news reports about the Knockout Game phenomenon, and then, when that failed, to poo-poo the idea that any such thing as this violent and obviously race-based crime even existed, the truth will out. (snip) Of course, the Holder justice department has not ignored the Knockout Game entirely. A recent such attack in Houston has been charged as a federal hate crime, and the perp is going to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

How Leftists (Badly)

American Thinker, by Chet Richards    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 1/6/2014 9:13:28 AM     Post Reply
Over geologic time, within a fluctuation of a few degrees, the Earth´s climate has been moderate and stable. The climate has long been similar to today´s despite the fact that, in the past, carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has typically been very much greater than it is today. Why is this so? No one knows. That is what scientists should be trying to discover. (snip)The fundamental mistake made consistently by almost all global warming advocates is that carbon dioxide induces net positive feedback. The postulated mechanism is that increased carbon dioxide warms the atmosphere, which, in turn, causes increased evaporation

President Obama’s speech on NSA reform had all the hallmarks of his administration—and, not coincidentally, of his hyper-analytical, aloof, and cerebral personality. The endless, quasi-public policy review? Check. Lengthy consultations with a vast variety of experts? Check. (“I’ve listened to foreign partners, privacy advocates, and industry leaders. My administration has spent countless hours considering how to approach intelligence in this era of diffuse threats and technological revolution.”) The rhetorical genuflections to appear fair to both sides.

Months and months ago, when Barack Obama could be bothered to say anything at all about the attacks in Ben-ghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012, the president promised to bring the perpetrators to justice. That was before White House spokesman Jay Carney dismissed the attacks as something that “happened a long time ago.” It’s been 16 months. The U.S. government has neither captured nor killed a single participant in those attacks, which left Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead. Why?

Have you ever lied about reading a book? Maybe you didn’t want to seem stupid in front of someone you respected. Maybe you rationalized it by reasoning that you had a familiarity with the book, or knew who the author was, or what the story was about, or had glanced at its Wikipedia page. Or maybe you had tried to read the book, even bought it and set it by your bed for months unopened, hoping that it would impart what was in it merely via proximity (if that worked, please email me).

T ea Party activists and the conservative groups that have enforced their agenda are vehemently opposed to the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill that will fund the government through September. On Wednesday evening, the House passed the bill anyway, 359 to 67, with plenty of votes to spare. Sixty-four of those no votes were from conservative Republicans. But it seems pretty clear from the vote tally that Tea Party–style "ideological purity has lost its power," says Jonathan Weisman in The New York Times.

Late Thursday afternoon, the Senate passed a $1.1 trillion spending measure that´s best described as a fix -- fix, as in an act of Republican perfidy and chicanery. The process was rigged by Speaker Boehner and Senate Minority Leader McConnell (doubtless with a wink and a nod from Harry Reid) to push through the gargantuan spending measure while giving House and Senate Republicans cover on ObamaCare funding. The bill was an incomprehensible 1,582 pages. Here´s how it worked. House Republicans passed the spending bill with a provision to strip funding from ObamaCare.

Welcome to modern day governance in America! In this brave new world. vital legislation need not be read, or considered, or debated. Isn´t it enough that the leaders say vote for it and be done with it? Apparently, yes. The House approved the $1.1 trillion spending bill in near record time. The 1500 page bill contains all sorts of stuff that no one has a clue about because unless you´re a graduate of the Eveyln Wood speed reading course, you didn´t have much of a chance to study it.
