Reality vs. Political Correctness:
Amnesty and the Fight for America´s Soul

American Thinker, by William Sullivan

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 7/5/2014 5:38:55 AM

Dr. Ben Carson once made the observation that “political correctness” acts as a “muzzle” to quell legitimate dissent against the status quo. That is undoubtedly a true statement. But to drive in the stakes and build our intellectual ramparts on this point is little more than ceding coveted ground in an argument against a completely unfounded doctrine that presents falsehoods as facts. There is a more fundamental observation upon which we can mount our legitimate defense against the doctrine of “political correctness,” and it lies in the simplest inspection of the phrase “politically correct.” Inherent in those two words’ juxtaposition is

I´m not sure I buy this definition of "politically correct".

Certainly politically correct is assigned to things that are incorrect. Just as something that is social justice is something that is legislated injustice.

It was time to act against the tyranny or proposed tyranny some 6 years ago. It was not done then, so what chance is there it will be done now?

Political correctness is nothing less than enslavement of the mind. It is beyond tragic and idiotic that so many people voluntarily sign up for it.

PC is the collective chorus of those who find life to be too painful, too stark, too rigorous, singing in minor harmony....´Shut up...shut up.....shut up !´

Perhaps this is forgivable in women and children but less so in academia and government.

The results of this delusional obsession once applied only to it´s proponents but now have spread like a contagious hallucinogen and will lead many to stare at the sun and jump off the nearest building.

A flirtation with real, old-fashioned LSD would be much safer. It, at least, wears off after 14 hours or so.

One thing is for sure, if it became impossible for illegal aliens legalized through amnesty to ever become US voters the liberal Democrats would immediately lose interest in legalizing those aliens.

Then if the liberal Democrats could get enough "Cheap Labor" Republicans to go along, it would not be long before the illegal alien situation would be solved with the vast majority of today´s illegal aliens going back to their homelands.

Go Big or Go Home

Big ideas sometimes play a role in political campaigns, but not in this year’s midterm elections. Republican candidates concentrate on linking their opponents to President Obama and his policies. That’s it. Democrats are understandably wary of defending Obama. They go after Republicans on minor or trumped-up issues, often in unscrupulous TV ads. This formula is working for Democrats. For them, victory in the elections would be holding Republicans to minimal gains and retaining control of the Senate. If nothing changes, they have a shot.

Republican voters are down on the sluggish GOP officials they elected, and the officeholders whine about the unreasonable people who voted for them. Republican backbenchers complain about their lame leaders, and GOP leaders grumble about their unruly followers. Right-wing pundits despair of unimaginative Republican pols, and the hard-headed pols are impatient with impractical commentators. Conservative activists loathe the GOP establishment, and the establishment is terrified and contemptuous of the base.

Is Obama Wagging the Ebola Dog?
American Thinker, by Lauri B Regan    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 9/18/2014 6:40:19 AM     Post Reply
The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security

For crying out loud, will someone “pleeeeease” take a stand for Conservatism? Someone forwarded this article to me, “Why Are Republicans Suddenly Leaning Left?” The article cites numerous examples of the GOP obviously believing it must embrace at least lukewarm Liberalism while backing away from Conservatism to win elections.The article mentioned that Mitt Romney avoided saying “Republican” in an ad supporting Scott Brown’s Senate run. Romney said in the ad referring to Brown, “will buck his own party to do what’s right for New Hampshire.” Romney’s statement implies that Conservatism can be mean, but rest assured that Brown will push

Roger Goodell´s Tragic Sanctimony

Like many sports stories, this one is about fathers and sons. Before Roger Goodell was National Football League commissioner—before fans and pundits alike began calling for his ouster in the wake of the ongoing Ray Rice domestic-violence scandal; before members of Congress began sending angry letters and demanding answers—Goodell was an 11-year-old boy, watching the Nixon White House crush his dad’s political career. The year was 1970. Charles E. Goodell, then a moderate Republican senator from New York, was running for reelection. The previous summer, he had sponsored a high-profile bill that would have ended funding for the Vietnam War.

Gov. Bobby Jindal Says Americans Want
a ‘Hostile Takeover’ of Washington

Gov. Bobby Jindal today said Americans are clamoring for a “hostile takeover” of Washington, D.C. While speaking at The Heritage Foundation to a group of reporters about his new energy plan, the Louisiana governor and potential 2016 presidential candidate said voters are calling on Republicans to offer “real ideas” and “real solutions” in Washington. “We need to understand people are hungry for big change,” he said. “They’re not looking for tinkering; they’re looking for a hostile takeover of D.C.” That means not just talking about repealing Obamacare, Jindal continued, but taking measures to repeal and replace it.

Five Things about Bobby
Jindal´s Energy Plan

Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana hopes to emerge as a leading policy thinker in the field of potential GOP presidential candidates. He released an energy plan Tuesday that in some ways is more nuanced and moderate than ideas espoused by other candidates. The 43-year-old governor’s energy plan includes a number of proposals championed by other Republicans, including expanded domestic energy production and the elimination of environmental regulations that target coal-fired power plants. Here’s five more surprising things you should know.

SkyBridge Capital's Anthony "Mooch" Scaramucci is fully on board Mitt Romney's still-hypothetical presidential campaign in 2016.Scaramucci, one of Romney's biggest backers on Wall Street during the 2012 race, predicted on Monday that Romney would ultimately end up running if other establishment favorites like former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), back out."I don’t think he’s 100% made the decision," Scaramucci said in a Fox Business interview. "But a couple of factors could happen: If Gov. Jeb Bush drops out or declares that he's not going to run, I think that puts Gov. Romney in ... position."


My Interview with Jeb Bush

A former GOP governor is traveling extensively, speaks passionately about the lack of presidential leadership, is conversant in foreign policy and has a comprehensive vision for domestic reform. A presidential contender? Well, that is what everyone wants to know about Jeb Bush. Sitting in his educational foundation’s offices in Washington, Bush is animated and – if you think this has political implications – looks thinner than I have seen him over the past couple of years. No, he didn’t say whether he has decided to run for president, but he gave every appearance of being ready and capable of doing so

Electoral-Vote.com, the site that analyzes political races based on the "poll of the day" (or an aggregate of polls if more than one for a particular race comes out on the same day) has good news for the GOP. Its current map for the senate has the Republicans up 51 to the Dem´s 48, with Kansas "tied" (which is how they get around having an independent in the lead there at the moment.)

Sen. Ted Cruz wants to make sure nothing happens during the post-election lame duck. Not government funding, immigration reform or anything else of significant stature. Seizing on a delayed House vote on a bill that would fund the government through Dec. 11, Cruz on Wednesday publicly lobbied House Republicans to rewrite their spending bill so that it expires during the next Congress rather than the lame duck. And in a separate letter addressed to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Cruz and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) pledged to object to swift consideration of “any non-emergency, substantial and controversial legislation, nominations,

The midterm elections are a few months away and politicians should be worried, at least about the small business vote, according to a new poll from Manta, the online community for small businesses. According to the survey of 1,511 small business owners, 81% of respondents who plan to vote in the midterm elections intend to throw their support behind a challenger. While the Republican Party has typically been viewed as the biggest supporter of small business, only 32% think so right now, marking a 22% decline since 2012. The Democrats aren’t immune to the dissatisfaction either. Manta’s survey shows 26% don’t

After declaring war on the Tea Party and often showing nothing but contempt for grassroots conservatives that powered Republicans to record gains in the 2010 midterm elections, Karl Rove whined that the GOP may not take back the Senate this year because of the lack of enthusiasm for his establishment-approved candidates. Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Rove notes that even though Obama´s "job approval numbers are lousy, no Democrat in a competitive Senate race polls regularly above 50%, GOP enthusiasm is high, and independents are trending Republican... each passing day provides evidence as to why a GOP Senate majority is

CBS is putting its Hillary-inspired drama "Madam Secretary" on Sunday nights next to "The Good Wife." In Friday´s New York Times, TV critic Alessandra Stanley discussed the two shows and slammed Hillary. "Hillary Rodham Clinton is the obvious inspiration, but this is Hillary with a human face," she wrote. During the Cold War, reporters would suggest a kinder, gentler Marxist regime was "communism with a human face." Stanley continued: "Téa Leoni, who has a husky voice and a loose, engaging manner, is an unusually likable beauty.

Four teachings from Jesus

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J.

WASHINGTON — WHEN Willie Nelson invites you to get high with him on his bus, you go. The man is the patron saint of pot, after all, and I’m the poster girl for bad pot trips. It seemed like a match made in hash heaven. When Nelson sang at the 9:30 club in D.C. one recent night, I ventured onto the Honeysuckle Rose, as his tour bus and home-away-from-home is called. I was feeling pretty shy about meeting him. The 81-year-old Redheaded Stranger is an icon, one of America’s top songwriters and, as Rolling Stone said, “a hippie’s hippie and

SALEM, N.H. — Voters have soured on President Obama. National and statewide trends favor Republicans. And here in his new home state, Scott Brown’s truck is gaining speed. Analysts and recent polls have found Brown closing in on US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Democratic incumbent he is vying to unseat, in a race that has become increasingly nasty and expensive. Once largely dismissed by critics as an unlikely second act in a state he moved to only last year, Brown’s Senate bid is increasingly seen as a plausible path back to the US Capitol.

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief
