When Mettle Meets the Toads
American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 10/6/2013 5:34:03 AM

Two battles were joined this week, one on Capital Hill and another at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (the symbolic core of which is known as Bascom Hill). In both cases, free men who refused to be cowed struck back at overreaching tyrants. (a) The Battle of Capitol Hill As the Republicans and Democrats squared off on spending, World War II and Korean War vets were making their way to Washington, D.C. on Honor Flights, a charitable program to bring these folks to see the memorials to service members who fought in those wars. Many are aged and infirm -- especially those who

If there is anything more useless than a college teacher, it is a college administrator. Wait until the college bubble bursts and the quota-hire indoctrinators are taking your orders from Popeyes.

Re. Bascom Hill, there is obviously rampant, malignant Leftist madness afoot on our college campuses. Comparisons to the Chinese Cultural Revolution seem alarmingly apropos.
And when we hear that half of all college grads can´t find work these days, perhaps there´s more to it than just a bad economy.

WWII vets and a university TA. God bless ´em! Hearing truth is a powerful thing. It makes us think. It makes us reason. It makes us free. When I see or hear examples of truth being told I am so proud. It takes courage to stand up to the Marxocrats and their fellow travelers because they are vicious and will extract their pound of flesh. Everytime an American stands up to this tyranny, it gives us hope that all is not lost. Standing for freedom in an Obama world may cost you but the rewards are worth it. God bless anyone who stands against the tyranny of this administration. There really are more of us than there are of them. We are a free people. Never foret it. It is our birthright.

I knew that the universities were bad.....but I never imagined them to be this bad. I spent 4 years working on campuses in the 90´s....I see that a lot has changed.

Somehow, we have to regain control of higher learning and immediately apply common sense, actual history and logic, or the republic is doomed. Least we forget that many leftists revolutions are spawned on college campuses.

Excellent, as usual.

Like the diversity forums at U of Wisconsin, the Common Core curriculum discussed in an earlier post is merely disguised national indoctrination.

The all-out national assault by Leftists on every institution in this country has gained a foothold, but it´s not yet carved in stone. We have a chance to roll back the Red tide if only we make ourselves aware aware of what is going on in academe from K thru grad school. Then we fight it.

Love your stuff, Clarice, but -- pick up the pace. Obama´s being a tyrant, not dumb, not tin-eared. Dangerous.

And please! I hope you understand and respect English too much to ever grossly misuse "optics" again as you do in this piece.

Fads are fads. But the too-frequent fad of wrong usage pretending to be "more erudite" in some bizarre way should never have an accomplice like you, Clarice. ´K? Thanks.

Oh -- and where´s your editor? A group of... "us" would like to... "meet" him. For, uhhh, "coffee." Y´know?

Thank you – thank you!, Clarice Feldman, for two outstanding exposés.

The e-mail reprinted from Jason Morgan, the TA was chilling and infuriating. At the same time, reading that such a wonderful and courageous young man is refusing, "to bow to intellectual tyranny and mandatory radicalism”, is overwhelmingly heartening and heartwarming.

Jason Morgan is indeed a hero – God bless him and encourage him and all of those like him.

I watched Hannity with a group of "college kids". The robot from harvard was so indoctrinated, and not an attractive person, that God help us if he ever gets into the mainstream of life whether business or government!! The total arrogance he perpetuated in view that he was in fact "educated at harvard" was appalling and very disconcerting!

If you think Obama is losing the first battle because of his petulant, spiteful handling of the national park shutdowns, think again. The complaints I´m hearing come from people who blame congress for not doing its job. We fell down the rabbit hole long ago.

While this reads like two articles, #12, there really is an important connection. Namely, what we´re seeing in the petulant shutdowns of the monuments is the present, but the Kafkaesque travails of Jason Morgan is our future. You won´t just be obstructed from going to monuments, you´ll even be harassed for THINKING of them.

Communism (and that´s what this is, not socialism) is all about total control of the individual. What you do. Where you go. What you say. What you think. It all belongs to them. And contrary to the common definition of communism, it has less to do with the control of the means of production (which is actually just a by-product) than about the total control of the individual.

We are in fact in the early stages of a communist takeover. They are merely doing a "sound check" right now to see how compliant we will be.

These are but two examples of the apparent opinion on he left of their position in this country.

It used to be that the hard core leftists, like the politicians and academia in this article, went out of their way to deny their true intent. Now, they are so sure of their power that they have given up all pretense, and are willing to openly force their world upon us. They believe they can finally close the deal.

Our WWII vets, and a student in the belly of the beast, have said "enough!".

What say you?

The proles will off him somehow, we predict, and the pols will scourge him. But for one shining example of ´´we ain´t taking it no more´´ brilliance, he excels.

No one aside from us has ever heard of Clarice. However, Joe Pags has a talk show millions can tune into. Yest. he asked callers to relate their closings, from the fishing on the Carolina outer banks, football teams, the Grand Canyon to a bed & breakfast ( Rush & Hannity are helping ). As is becoming clear, any property remotely connected to the feds is being ridiculously ´enforced´. Our biggest problem, as usual, is that the rest of the media will NOT report any of this. Keep the public in the dark and feed them ___. We the informed are learning just how much the feds own and how much force they can exert.

This is a brilliant writing. Clarice Feldman is one of the best. Two seemingly separate subjects combine to show the incredible petty, powerful, downward communist style pressure on both our elderly decorated warriors and a young, super bright Teachers Assistant. Both suffer crazed quietly established propaganda policies. WWII vets plan a year ahead for a special memorial trip, only to be barred from entry. A teacher of ancient Japanese history is pressured to bow to contemporary sexual fetishes. The only thing missing from Feldman’s superb message is this reminder: it is time for all her readers, all our L dotters, to begin reading up on the brutal techniques, the propaganda rules of communism. Last week, lucianne.com ran an amazing article by Monica Showalter, of Investors Business Daily, on the subject of Lenin´s early rules of communist propaganda. The most chilling was Lenin´s own quotes on how he murdered, mass hangings of innocent peasants simply to create horror and fear among the peasants, those same masses he openly despised. Has a familiar ring to it, remembering the steady flow of mass killings of innocents taking place here and now. And these killings deliver the instant opportunity for the Feinsteins, Schumers and Rieds to propagandize, ban, confiscate, control the guns of all honest law abiding citizens. It makes one wonder if those killings are not all planned simply for the purpose of putting fear into the minds of the masses, to add anti gun pressure.

Clarice Feldman´s words are pure brain candy. And here she also gives us the pleasure of reading Jason Morgan. The pleasure of their written words is akin to that which we felt listening to the spoken words of Ted Cruz during his superb speech.

But there is a problem here. And that problem is perhaps best summed up in the Maryland state motto:

Fatti maschii, parole femine (Manly deeds, Womanly words)

[Now don´t get all hissy on me. We´ve thrashed this out before in Maryland. The motto comes from the Calvert family, and the "Womanly words" are best thought of as diplomacy, mediation. In any case, we have a wimp, PC version: "Strong Deeds, Gentle Words." End digression.]

With all due respect to the writers and speakers mentioned here, we are well past the point of "parole femine." It is now time for some well-advised "Fatti maschii."

#15, I too saw that Hannity student forum program Friday night. The producer should be fired... The Leftists were committed and articulate, albeit misinformed and/or lying. Meanwhile the Conservative/Republican students were tentative and far less assertive and articulate... One embarrassingly so. The Lefties should have been forcefully challenged a number of times, and weren´t. I wrote Hannity about this, thanking him for the show, but
requesting significant improvements in the future.

#35 Who is the honcho that issued that order? The left has been telling us for years that there is a separation between church and state and we must obey that part of the Constitution.

So, why now is "state" getting involved in "church" matters? I guess the Constitution is only relevant when it suits the needs of the Left. Also, if a volunteer isn´t concerned about being paid by the government, why should he be arrested for volunteering to do his job without pay?

This will really confuse the lo-infos as well as smart people.

NO-Bomber has made some huge PR mistakes.

He has no ability to freelance his way through this... TOTUS can´t help him here.
He´s over his head not only in debt and invective, but also in trying to improvise in dealing with a grassroots movement.

Luckily Boehner is proving to be more sure-footed...
but it helps when O-Bomber looks dumber than Jesse Jack-Ass...

I agree with another poster insofar as the email from the Wisconsin student
runs way too long for me to care about... excessive detail there.

Growing up in Lily-White northern NH, i didn´t form much of an opinion of our very very few and very very cold negroes. Sounded poorly spoken, but worked hard... they had to; like us all, to survive.

Selling important encyclopedia (Big B) in very dark Grove Hall district in Boston, during University days (and nights), i had few sales that weren´t taken over by my so-called supervisor. But, those negroes wanted to learn for their kids. At least i thought so. They were trying.

Today, looking at the behavior, decisions and lies of our first genuine black President and his largely black staff and appointments, i am not so sure they are trying or capable. Perhaps they are not yet ready for prime time. If this is their best guy, he doesn´t seem like much more than an old union longshoreman from San Pedro, who used to haggle and scream about Gov. Reagan´s threat to the working man...

OK, as a Warton grad, i don´t expect that any Harvard dude with attitude knows much about either the Venona Intercepts, Milton Friedman´s advice to Reagan, or even JFK´s tax reductions to reverse the near-war recession he necessitated as Krushoff´s plebe-boy.

But, just because a leader may have Marxist intent, doesn´t mean he isn´t also very stupid. O´s frozen ideological and theological preferences will likely be his undoing.

As long as it isn´t our undoing.

After all, Alinsky´s playbook, Rules for Radicals, is still freely available on the net.

We ought not to be surprised every Monday.

Scientists believe that over the last two billion years or so, there have been as many as seventeen times that Earth has experienced an Ice Age. They suspect an Ice Age when they see shifts in geological formations that are so severe that the only explanation appears to be glaciers forming and moving large quantities of land from one part of the continent to another part. Each Ice Age is estimated to have lasted for at least 100,000 years, with some lasting millions of years. Each was eventually followed by a period of gradual warming, resulting in the glaciers melting and

One of the hallmarks of the Obama administration is that it is among the most corrupt administrations in living memory. The degree of corruption and thuggery to which many administration members have stooped would make even Boss Tweed of Tammany Hall fame blush. But what’s truly remarkable about the Obama administration is that its corruption is so unabashed. Among the most corrupt functionaries of the Obama regime is Attorney General Eric Holder, who appears to be Obama’s alter ego and enforcer. From day one he let America know that he held most of its citizens in contempt by proclaiming that the American

The back-and-forth drama on the House Oversight Committee has gotten heated over the past few months. Last month, Elijah Cummings threw a fit when Issa shut down a hearing after retired IRS Director Lois Lerner plead the Fifth Amendment. Issa fired off a personal letter at Cummings, claiming that he and his attorneys were frustrating the fact-finding mission of the Oversight Committee. Following revelations that Cummings’ staff was working with the IRS to get information on True the Vote, the same group Cummings tried to shame into silence through the race card, further evidence indeed suggests that Cummings was shaking down and

A bombshell revelation has brought the IRS scandal to a new level. Judicial Watch has released internal IRS communications revealing that former Tax Exempt Organizations director Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice (DOJ) regarding whether it was possible to criminally prosecute tax-exempt groups she believed had “lied” about their political activity. Judicial Watch obtained the documents by successfully filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the IRS in October 2013, following the agency’s stonewall of four FOIA requests dating back to the previous May.

Ann Coulter was recently interviewed by author, journalist and talk radio host Howie Carr on his program; her commentary was pure establishment balderdash. Ann may plead hyperbole, but her sentiment is readily apparent. Among the pearls of wisdom: Carr: “Who are you for, for president right now, Ann?” Coulter: “Um…well, don’t tell’em, but I’m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest; flying out, kidnapping him, and depriving him of sleep, food and water until he agrees to run again.” Carr: “You’re kidding.” Coulter: “No” Carr: “You really want him to run again?”

House Speaker John Boehner’s top allies are racing out the door to retirement, Bloomberg News reported on Thursday. Top Boehner allies that are retiring in 2014 include four committee chairmen: Reps. Mike Rogers (R-MI) of the Intelligence Committee, Buck McKeon (R-CA) of the Armed Services Committee, Doc Hastings (R-WA) of the Natural Resources Committee and Dave Camp (R-MI) of the Ways and Means Committee. One of Boehner closest friends, Rep. Tom Latham (R-IA), is retiring this year, and another—Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID)—may lose his seat in a primary in Idaho against conservative Bryan Smith.

During the debates surrounding the adoption of the Constitution by the several states, one commentator observed that "the government should be so small that it doesn´t matter who wins." Well, the government is no longer small, and this year, in Virginia´s Seventh Congressional District, it matters very much who wins. Republicans are not the only people in this country who are dismayed at the collapse of conviction and principle in the party’s national establishment. Gone are the days when GOP leaders would defend valiantly the principles of limited government, the rule of law, and the rights and duties of individual

The ultimate party litmus test: given a veto-proof legislature, will Republicans finally start to reduce the scope and size of government? It looks like the answer is no. In 2013, North Carolina was just one of 25 states where Republican governors were given historic opportunity to govern alongside Republican-controlled legislatures. Despite conservative voters’ best hopes, any sensible mandate to restore individual and economic freedom flew out the window when the FY 2013-14 budget was approved, reauthorizing the formerly Democratic state’s blueprint budget with a tragic 2.0-percent increase in general fund appropriations.

The danger is this: In the USA’s upcoming 2014 elections, Republican elites assume that everyone all now agrees that conservatives ‘must’ support non-conservative candidates to win more elections. The GOP is operating on the belief that everyone is on board, simply because insiders have officially decreed it to be so. However, the grassroots in the USA remains unconvinced. Worse, the Republican establishment has no plan for truly healing the actual wounds. Elites want to avoid change more fervently than they do want to win elections. Elites violated trust by advancing liberal policies in the U.S. Congress, but they won’t apologize or

Trey Gowdy is a busy guy, and an up-and-coming senator says he should be on the Supreme Court. ? Over the past year or so, Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican congressman, has drawn substantial national attention, winning adulation from Tea Party activists who like his tough questioning in committee hearings. His growing prominence and indisputably Southern demeanor have made him one of the standouts from the 2010 House class. He’s in good company. Gowdy entered the House in the 2010 Tea Party wave along with three other freshman South Carolina Republicans: Tim Scott, Jeff Duncan, and Mick Mulvaney. The four were nicknamed

Putin Endangering Russia´s Oil Supply

Russia´s Putin has invaded his neighbor’s sovereign territory. He must and will face serious repercussions for doing so, and the international community must make the price severe. Unless we are willing to go to war for Ukraine—and I believe that would be unwise—Russia without question has the military might and geographic advantage to control the Crimea and the Russian dominated areas of Ukraine. But at what cost? Russia´s stock market is dropping precipitously and their economy is quite dependent on exports that depend on a stable Ukraine.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
