It´s Liberalism Day -- Real Liberalism,

Your first thought might well be, “Why do we need that? Liberalism is ruining America every day.” Point well taken, but that’s because you have absorbed the idea that “liberalism” means ever-expanding government that takes more and more of our income, spends it on thousands of wasteful special interest programs, and increasingly controls our lives. You think that “liberalism” means living under the heels of Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and their bureaucratic minions. There certainly is nothing to celebrate in that. But that conception of liberalism is an Orwellian perversion: war is peace, freedom is slavery, and now liberalism means omnipotent government. The

Comments:
The DemocRAT left have hijacked and perverted Liberalism in much the same way radical Islam has hijacked and perverted religion . . . . and for the same reasons - acquiring power through force, deception and exploitation.

This validates what I have been trying to convince people of for some time. That the Communist and Socialist Parties have co-opted the words Liberal and Progressive to hide their takeover of the USA and that most people today are too brainwashed to have enough intelligence to see it.

Both Parties vowed to take over the US by infiltrating the Democrat Party, which is why you find most Liberals are Democrats. They are traitors to the Constitution and too dumb to know it.

I wonder how many people know that, some years back, the Congressional Socialist Caucus changed their name to Congressional Progressive Caucus to hide their Socialism? How many know there are approximately 70 of them, all Democrats, in the House of Representatives? Do you even know if one of them is your Congressman/woman?

"We The People" won´t do anything about it because they have every excuse to not do anything, or they are too busy with their petty lives and want someone else to do it.

RINO Republicans are not much better. "We The People" better stop voting for the same Anti-Constitutionalist, Democrat and Republican, over and over. If you do then stop the whining and complaining.

Organizations (political, religious, unions, large corporations, schools, bureaucracies) are prime targets for narcissists and psychopaths. Those seeking power/wealth climb to the upper levels of such organizations.

Psychopaths seek power and wealth. Narcissists seek adulation, power and wealth. These people know what is best for you, and know how the world should be run. According to them.

Of course liberalism has been perverted. So has any large organization or philosophy.

BAGHDAD — Residents of a religiously mixed town in northern Iraq fled for their lives into the desert on Monday after al-Qaeda renegades stormed in, and Secretary of State John F. Kerry said U.S. drone strikes “may well be” an option to help stop the insurgents’ advances. In an interview with Yahoo! News, Kerry said the radical Islamist fighters sweeping through northern Iraq post “an existential challenge” to the country and threaten the stability of the region. He said President Obama was thoroughly considering “every option that is available,” including drone strikes, and he stressed that “we are deeply committed

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been photographed taking a ride on the pride of his navy - an aging submarine. Photos appeared on state television of the dictator posing on the galley of the submarine´s conning tower, meeting the ship´s crew and apparently directing naval manoeuvres. South Korea´s government expressed surprise at the move as the pictures clearly showed the inside of one of the North´s most powerful ships. The South´s Yonhap News Agency said the "rusty, green submarine" was thought to be a 1,800-ton Soviet-built Romeo-class vessel, built in the 1950s.

The man who led the charge to have Eric H. Holder Jr. held in contempt of Congress is on a new crusade: to impeach the nation’s first black attorney general. “There’s a total disregard for the rule of law,” Rep. Paul A. Gosar, Arizona Republican, told The Washington Times. “We can’t sit idly by here as we see the Constitution and justice being defamed right and left at the whim of the attorney general.” Mr. Gosar’s list of what he says are constitutional violations includes the Justice Department giving the Obama administration permission to ignore the requirement of notifying Congress before transferring

LONDON — Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday that sexual violence in conflict zones should be banished “to the dark ages and the history books,” as he joined dozens of ministers and the actress Angelina Jolie to promote efforts to bring perpetrators of such crimes to justice. Mr. Kerry spoke at the end of a four-day conference in London designed to support victims and bring to account those responsible for rape and sexual violence that has scarred conflicts from the Balkans to Africa. “Sexual violence in conflict is one of the most persistent and neglected injustices imaginable, and ending this

The Obama administration is urgently considering an air assault on Islamic extremists that officials told the Guardian could be directed at targets in Syria as well as Iraq. President Obama announced on Friday that in the "days ahead" he will decide on a package of military and diplomatic options to halt the rapid advance of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis), as the jihadist army´s march from Syria through Sunni Iraq has upended Obama´s achievement of extricating the US military from the Iraq conflict. Obama has ruled out sending US soldiers and marines back to the Iraqi

Baghdad, Iraq— Islamist rebel fighters captured two more Iraqi towns overnight in a relentless sweep south towards the capital Baghdad in a campaign to recreate a medieval caliphate carved out of fragmenting Iraq and Syria. U.S. President Barack Obama threatened military strikes against the radical Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant on Thursday, highlighting the gravity of ISIL´s threat to redraw borders in an oil-rich region with the risk of any new entity turning into a launch-pad for attacks on Western interests. In the spreading chaos, Iraqi Kurdish forces seized control of Kirkuk - an oil hub just outside their

A dozen years ago, Congress authorized President George W. Bush to invade Iraq to prevent the regime of then-dictator Saddam Hussein from posing a threat to this country with weapons of mass destruction we later discovered he did not have. In his second inaugural address in 2005, Bush described the broader utopian vision motivating his foreign policy. "So it is the policy of the United States to seek and support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture, with the ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world," Bush said. To this end, he sought to

The Senate on Wednesday voted not to move forward on a bill from Sen. Elizabeth Warren that would have allowed an estimated 25 million with older student loans to refinance that loan debt at current, lower interest rates. President Barack Obama and second lady Jill Biden had thrown their support behind the bill in recent days, and Obama on Monday rolled out new executive actions to help address student loan debt alongside the action in the Senate. But Warren’s bill sparked a fierce debate in the Senate, where Republicans said Democrats are cynically capitalizing on student loan debt for election-year gains. “I’ve

Hillary Clinton favorability rating

There is a lot of talk about Hillary Clinton lately, but that´s not helping the public´s opinion of her, according to a new Gallup poll. While a majority of Americans continue to have a favorable opinion of her, it´s been on the steady decline since 2012 when it hit 66 percent. Now, 54 percent view her favorably, which is down from 59 percent in February. Her favorability rating is the lowest it´s been since Aug. 2008 (54 percent), when she was gearing up to speak at the Democratic National Convention and endorse then-Sen. Barack Obama for the 2008 presidential nomination.

Researchers at the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics have punctured one of the main arguments of global warming activists, that the large scale melting of an Antarctic glacier is caused by man made global warming. 1200 WOAI´s Michael Board reports researcher Duncan Young says the Thwaites Glacier is indeed melting, but it is not melting due to global warming, but do to the fact that an active volcano exists directly under the glacier. "Looking at the radar data, we can find things that look like volcanoes, little volcanoes, scattered under the ice," Hunter told 1200 WOAI news. He says the findings ´significantly

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that the Irving-based Boy Scouts of America perpetuates “the worst stereotypes” by barring gay people from becoming Scout leaders. “The continuation of a policy that discriminates against gay adult leaders — by an iconic American institution — only preserves and perpetuates the worst kind of stereotypes,” Holder said in a speech to the gay civil rights group Lambda Legal in Washington. Holder did not announce any legal action against the Boy Scouts. A Supreme Court decision 14 years ago said the Scouts, as a private entity, had a right to discriminate against

Hillary Clinton´s multimillion dollar fortune has caused some negative headlines during the media tour for the release of her new book "Hard Choices," which is widely seen as a prelude to a potential 2016 presidential campaign. Clinton responded to criticism of her wealth in an interview with the Guardian newspaper published Saturday night by suggesting Americans won´t be concerned about the more than $100 million her family has reportedly earned in recent years because they´re not "truly well off." "They don´t see me as part of the problem," Clinton said of Americans who are upset about income inequality, adding, "Because we

Republicans dropped a hammer on IRS Commissioner John Koskinen during a testy hearing covering the disappearance of emails tied to the agency´s tea party targeting scandal. The emails, covering the period January 2009 to April 2011, belonged to embattled former official Lois Lerner and could shed light on whether an expansive scheme to single out conservative groups for special scrutiny was guided by members of Congress or administration officials outside the IRS. ´The committee requested all of Lois Lerner’s emails over a year ago,´ said House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa. ´And we subpoenaed the emails in August 2013 and

Noted management expert and Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen was apparently called out of retirement — like the Ted Williams of evasive, unapologetic bureaucrats — to destroy what is left of his agency’s credibility. At immediate issue is two years of subpoenaed e-mails from former IRS official Lois Lerner to outside agencies, lost in a convenient computer crash. The possible involvement of other agencies is one focus of a congressional investigation into the heightened IRS scrutiny of conservative nonprofit groups before the 2012 election. In recent congressional testimony, Koskinen admitted that the e-mails

‘R-E-S-P-E-C-T,” the song goes. It is easy enough to spell, but for some vocal critics of President Barack Obama, it seems exceedingly hard to do. As the president moves toward the land of the lame ducks, his political enemies are calling for blood. That’s no shocker at this stage of a presidency. In this case, the cuts go deeper. For some, it is not enough to disagree. Some high-status public figures seem determined to demean, denigrate and ridicule the president of the United States. On June 12 the Speaker of the U.S. House stepped to a podium and insulted Obama for his handling of

There are times that I have senior moments and forget certain names and events but after the recent Obama Iraq war implosion, I´m convinced most political pundits are suffering from them as well. What is unusual is that this revision of history is being committed by conservatives who should know better. Recent commentary by Glenn Beck, George Will and Charles Krauthammer indicate that they have significant memory lapses about why we went to war in Iraq. They now suggest that it was a wrong decision whereas my complaint is that we took too long to invade and oust Saddam Hussein.

Women vote Democrat because they are smarter, Obama said to a White House audience Monday afternoon. He made the remark at the end of a talk at the White House Summit on Working Families. “Somebody asked: ‘Well, it’s well-known that women are more likely to vote for Democrats,’ to which I said, women are smarter,” Obama said. “This is true.” The rest of Obama’s talk centered on paid maternity leave, a minimum wage of $10.10, flexibility in the workplace, and access to childcare.

US Secretary of State John Kerry has arrived in Iraq´s capital, Baghdad as Sunni insurgents expand their control of towns across north-western Iraq. In Egypt on Sunday, Mr Kerry warned that Sunni militants Isis´ "ideology of violence and repression is a threat not only to Iraq but to the entire region". On Sunday rebels--spearheaded by Isis militants--captured border crossings to Syria and Jordan. The strategically important airport in the northern Tal Afar has also fallen. The town controls the main road from the Syrian border to Mosul, Iraq´s second biggest city, which was captured by the rebels two weeks ago.

With much of the Obama administration´s foreign policy in tatters, John Kerry is clear on at least one goal he hopes to achieve by the end of his time as secretary of state: having lesbian, bisexual, and transgender ambassadors representing the United States. In remarks to a GLIFAA (formerly Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies) Pride event in the Ben Franklin Room at the State Department, the secretary ran through a litany of accomplishments by the Obama administration that benefit the "LGBT/gay community."

Krauthammer said that things are pretty bad, but noted, “There’s a big difference between decline as a condition and decline as a choice. What we have with Obama is a president choosing decline.” He continued, “We are in a position to dominate again, but we have a president who doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism, American greatness, and he has chosen for America to retreat from the Middle East, to not lift a finger in places like Ukraine, basically to make us one nation among others.” Krauthammer said Obama is comfortable with

WASHINGTON- The bear isn´t just on the loose. He´s also hungry. In this case, the bear in question is President Barack Obama, who has lately been comparing his yearnings to escape the White House security bubble to an animal breaking free from his cage. And his objects of pursuit once out in the wild include a good burger, some casual Mexican and a nice cup of hot tea. On Monday, Obama rounded up a few participants at a White House working families summit for a short walk to a local Chipotle restaurant, where they swapped stories while enjoying the fast-food
