Progressives Without Progress
Canada Free Press, by Daniel Greenfield

Original Article

Posted By:snowcloud, 1/31/2014 11:51:30 AM

There isn’t very much progress in the progressive movement. Progress is the expansion of possibilities. Progressives however have a Malthusian obsession with the scarcity of all things. They believe that we are about to run out of everything from energy to water to wealth and education and that like starving survivors on a lifeboat we have to redistribute everything. The progressive outlook predates the notion of progress. Its ideal is a static society, sustainable in its material practices and so utterly moral in its social attributes that it becomes immune to change. It is founded on the intertwining of the material

Province of Ontario announces minimum
wage hike same time as Obama
Canada Free Press, by Judi McLeod    Original Article
Posted By: snowcloud- 1/30/2014 3:58:34 PM     Post Reply
One day before President Barack Obama announced he was boosting the minimum wage from $7.25-an-hour to $10.10 an hour, at Tuesday’s State of the Union address, the Liberal Ontario Government announced a coming increase to Ontario’s minimum wage. Talk about global government by coordination! Ontario may be a long way from Washington, D.C., but the ties that bind between here and DC are family tight. Ontario Liberal MPP and Deputy Speaker Bas Balkissoon—who posted the coming Ontario Minimum Wage boost on his personal website—is the father-in-law of Valerie Jarrett’s daughter, Laura who is married to Balkissoon’s son, Tony, both lawyers having met at

Depriving the guy

Every King Lear needs a captive audience and without one is merely acting for himself. As Obama gets ready to preen at tonight’s State of the Union Address, sending out lies lies and more lies over the boob tube, ‘The Tune-out of all Time’ is the Little Guy show prep today. Calling it “The State of Coup”, Rush Limbaugh said on today’s radio show that all male SOTU attendees should put their arms around another woman and take a selfie—just the way Obama did at the Mandela Memorial. The State of the Union Blacked Out Union Address Party rocking on Facebook will be

Is Barack a Default Satanist?
Yes, and Here is Why

Most people believe in some kind of God. Less believe in the existence of personified evil, or the Devil. And yet the question of this essay, whether Barack has satanic characteristics, does not really depend upon whether Satan exists. Because whether as a literal figure, or simply as a literary device, there are certain devilish qualities which are hideous and highly destructive when any personality bears them. And Barack seems to carry virtually all of these traits. According to the Bible, some of Satan’s qualities are therefore listed here: Many characteristics and names of Satan can be discovered in the Bible. He

Obama’s Hammer & Sickle

Barack Obama doesn’t just have a pen and a telephone, he’s got a hammer and sickle too. The battle lines of the promised Marxist Revolution are being perfected as we go about our daily lives, and Obama’s hammer and sickle will drop on the Western world now that it’s 2014. Obama’s ‘Fundamental Transformation of America’ is only Stage 1 of a breathtaking world takeover plan. Obama and the fomenting-for-revolution Marxists won’t wait until 2016 to deliver their ‘New Socialist USA’. This is just for openers: Emboldened by Barack Obama’s twice-repeated reminder “I have a pen and a telephone” to bypass Congress whenever he

Michelle’s abortion-boosting 50th

As the White House celebrates Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday with a Barack Obama-hosted Saturday dance, some 327,166 babies aborted by Planned Parenthood won’t get to celebrate their birth days. And with the $1.2 billion refreshing Planned Parenthood coffers, the same fate awaits hundreds of thousands more babies destined to lose their lives to taxpayer-funded abortion. Days before Michelle Obama’s White House birthday celebrations this year, it was revealed that Planned Parenthood got $540.6 million in government grants in 2013 from her husband’s administration. “Planned Parenthood’s net revenue increased 5% to a total of

   

 

  


 
New Patriotic Movie
Blasts the Media

Posted By: snowcloud- 1/13/2014 9:56:33 AM     Post Reply
As incredible as it sounds, Hollywood has produced a patriotic movie for a change. “Lone Survivor,” the new war movie starring Mark Wahlberg, is so powerful in its depiction of the brutality of al Qaeda and its Taliban backers that it could awaken the American people to the reality of President Obama’s deliberate retreat in the face of this global danger. “‘Lone Survivor’ leaves box office shocked and awed,” is how USA Today described its debut. It depicts the grueling training of U.S. Navy SEALs and the sacrifices that American soldiers are making to keep Afghanistan free of Taliban and al-Qaeda

The year 2014 is destined to go down as ‘The Year of the Happy Hacker’. Never have hackers, who turn mega profits on millions of unprotected, unwitting consumers, had it so good. Today it’s Target Corp and Neiman Marcus and as yet unnamed smaller retailers. They’re only the latest on a growing long list that includes online giant Adobe’s 2.9-million customers’ 2013 data breach. In 2010, The Wall Street Journal reported a broad new hacking attack with the personal data of 2,500 companies being breached.The government’s not doing anything about it, because some of the power brokers of the day

Putting the Star of Bethlehem

In his inspirational column today, Father Paul Nicholson, Missionary Preacher of the New Evangelization, compares ever searching modern man to the Three Wise Men who followed the star to Bethlehem. “They presented the little Christ Child with gold because He was a King, frankincense because He was God, and myrrh because He would die as a Sacrificial Saviour,” Father writes, noting today is Epiphany. “They learned all that from a star. “It is remarkable isn’t it, that these men, unlettered by revelation, could read the sacred book of Creation and interpret it to understand the meaning of life, and the work of redemption.

Obama’s American Dream

Yesterday’s Obama address to the puckered-from-cold proletariat from Hawaii: Now hear this, all you GOPers who went home for Christmas: You ruined the lives of the people who voted you in to serve them. Only Democrats get to go home for Christmas. The rules about going home for Christmas don’t apply to the ‘Community Organizer Born to be King’ . In all the lies he’s told to date, he’s not sure himself which place he can safely call “home”. And just to think he gave this address between rounds of golfing, going to his favourite restaurants and slurping on shave ice!

Obama’s Hawaiian vacation

There’s a faint sound of quacking coming from the legendary Hawaiian surf. It comes from the culture-war victory that tailed Obama all the way to Kailua when caving to public sentiment, A&E brought Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson back to cable television. Photos of Phil Robertson outdid Obama vacation ones. According to AP only about two dozen people crowded in a roped-off area outside a nearby pizzeria, in a tiny strip mall near the beach when Obama went with his two daughters to a local Kailua shop for shaved ice on Tuesday. “I hope you guys have a great 2014,” Obama told the crowd.

A Left-Wing America Stands Alone
Canada Free Press, by Daniel Greenfield    Original Article
Posted By: snowcloud- 12/30/2013 12:25:00 PM     Post Reply
American progressives like to think of their country as backward and reactionary compared to Europe. And they have never been more right than now when Europe and the rest of the First World have gone right while America under Obama has been left back. In America Alone, Mark Steyn envisioned the United States as a beleaguered hope in a dying West. Seven years later, American politics are much less healthier than those of the rest of the free world. America does stand alone. It stands alone in embracing the rule of the left. Recently Australia, Japan and Norway welcomed in conservative governments. Tony

WASHINGTON — Representative Henry A. Waxman of California, a diminutive Democratic giant whose 40 years in the House produced some of the most important legislation of the era, will announce on Thursday that he is retiring at the end of the year. Mr. Waxman, 74, joins the growing list of House members who are calling it quits, many in disappointment over the partisanship and ineffectiveness of a Congress that may end up as the least productive in history. “It’s been frustrating because of the extremism of Tea Party Republicans,” Mr. Waxman said

Someone you probably are not familiar with has filed a suit you probably have not heard about concerning a four-word phrase you should know about. The suit could blow to smithereens something everyone has heard altogether too much about, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (hereafter, ACA). Scott Pruitt and some kindred spirits might accelerate the ACA’s collapse by blocking another of the Obama administration’s lawless uses of the Internal Revenue Service. Pruitt was elected Oklahoma’s attorney general by promising to defend states’ prerogatives against federal encroachment, and today he and some properly

Hundreds of career Justice Department lawyers have broken into open revolt against Attorney General Holder over his support of legislation that would drastically cut back on mandatory minimum sentences for drug pushers. The legislation Holder supports, known as the Durbin-Lee bill, would overturn the current mandatory minimum sentences not only for marijuana violations but for all drug offenses, including major and repeat trafficking in heroin, meth, PCP and other extremely dangerous, and often lethal, drugs. This was too much for hundreds of federal prosecutors. Today, Chuck Grassley, the Ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, read aloud from a letter the

Attorney General Eric Holder couldn´t explain the constitutional basis for executive orders such as President Obama´s delay of the employer mandate because he hasn´t read the legal analysis -- or at least, hasn´t seen it in a long time. "I´ll be honest with you, I have not seen -- I don´t remember looking at or having seen the analysis in some time, so I´m not sure where along the spectrum that would come," Holder replied when Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, asked him to explain the nature of Obama´s constitutional power to delay the mandate. Lee had based his question on

Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said Wednesday that there’s a “general consensus” in his party that something big needs to happen on overhauling the country’s immigration laws and that more specifics would be unveiled this week at House Republicans’ annual retreat. “I think politically speaking it’s a mixed bag, but the question is whether or not it’s something we have to do as a country, and I think that’s what’s trumping the political answer,” Mr. Priebus said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “You see in our party, whether it’s [Kentucky Senator] Rand Paul, who’s called for massive immigration reform, or [Florida

On Wednesday night, the official MSNBC Twitter account posted a tweet celebrating General Mills’ decision to air a biracial commercial touting Cheerios during this Sunday’s Super Bowl. However, that tweet came at the expense of suggesting “the rightwing” was racist. Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new#Cheerios ad w/ biracial family. http://on.msnbc.com/1dPgQEU The commercial titled “Gracie” is part two of last year’s popular “Just Checking” commercial for Cheerios, with the father this time using Cheerios to explain to “Gracie” she will soon have a younger sibling.

Obama won’t give it up. If you also suffered through the State of the Union address, you heard him praise Obamacare, claim he would slash bureaucracy, and of course, fight for income equality. Obama pandered to the ladies, his tone becoming more passionate with every overly emotional word: Today, women make up about half our workforce. But they still make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. That is wrong, and in 2014, it’s an embarrassment. A woman deserves equal pay for equal work. You have probably heard that statistic—77 cents on the dollar. Speech after speech from the left side of town

The snow and sleet have stopped falling and traffic is slowly moving again but a storm is now brewing over who exactly is at fault for the South´s winter weather fiasco. Weatherman Al Roker and the National Weather Service hit back at politicians in the South who have pointed the finger at inaccurate forecasts as the reason why authorities were so ill-prepared for snowfall and icy conditions which led to chaos on the roads. Georgia Governor Nathan Deal said on Tuesday that the storm was ´unexpected´ and ´we can´t control Mother Nature´. However NBC´s Al Roker completely rebuffed this claim on

I am strongly considering running.”
