While a “tax credit” might sound like a good deal for the taxpayers, this is anything but. What she is proposing is that the tax revenue plundered from the people be used to compensate the people who value wealth more than the means to defend life and liberty.
Our nation’s friendly creditors are not going to eternally continue to offer us a bottomless credit card, and indeed, when the suspension of disbelief in our ability to ever pay off the debt is no longer sustainable for even the most incurable optimists, Americans will face a darkness like we have never known.
In that time of rioting, looting, starvation, and disease–all on a scale too massive for most Americans to even imagine, it will be up to private citizens to secure their lives and liberty–and their families’. And if DeLauro has her way, those private citizens will have handed the best means of providing that security over–for two-thousand now valueless dollars.
If DeLauro wants to buy your “assault weapon,” tell her it can only be paid for in blood–and she can’t afford it.
Liberal commentator Jesse Berney apparently believes that all gun owners are complete dolts. His rant not surprisingly included no mention of the criminals, who for the record are the ones actually shooting people.
Iran’s foreign minister and lead nuclear negotiator, Mohammad Javad Zarif, told legislators that Iran would start feeding uranium into advanced centrifuges as soon as the nuclear deal with the P5+1 nations goes into effect,
But now you are a liberal in 2015 and the society is already very liberal. You are the product of liberal professors who learned at the feet of other liberal professors for 3 or 4 generations. You grew up in a liberal community to parents whose grandparents were already singing red campfire songs. Like them, you came of age as a member of a natural elite.
The newspapers you read, the textbooks you studied, the movies you watch, the professors who taught you and every adult you grew up with all reflect your point of view. You have no sense of being marginalized or out of step. Nor do you have any sense that there is another point of view out there. Only ranks of ignorant teabaggers paid for by corporate money who are about to be swept away into the dustbin of history as soon as the multicultural youth of tomorrow put together another Hip-Hop Against AIDS protest.
The open mind was a useful tool in the past because it enabled the questioning of another way of thinking, doing and being. But now it’s an obstacle because the way of thinking, doing and being is owned by the former questioners. Dissent is only patriotic when you’re one of the patriots. Questioning authority should only be done when you are the questioner, rather than the authority.
What we’re now seeing is not the culmination (as I said above, there will never be one; the Leftist gun will ever be at our backs to coerce us on) but the inevitable next step on the Leftist totalitarian path. As with gun control, battling “climate change,” the growth of the welfare state, and every single other issue you can think of in which the Left considers itself to have a vital interest–which is all of them; it’s not called “totalitarianism” for nothing, you know–the push will be relentless, remorseless, and never-ending.
They will not stop. And we will not be rid of them until either they are dead or we are enslaved. That is their one true goal. It is their only goal. And they by God intend to attain it, by any and all means they deem necessary.
Better recognize that simple fact now, folks, before it’s demonstrated for you personally, and in an irrevocable way.
ACLU is asking a court to instruct the US government to turn over all documents that are related to their contracts with religious organizations that provide relief and assistance for illegal aliens.
… the religious groups that offer any other help to illegals should be forced to pay to abort every baby that’s a result of being sexually abused and raped.

Reading what Iran thinks it agreed to vs. what Obama thinks Iran agreed to it looks like there were two different agreements. As to who is telling the truth? I would suggest that there was no agreement, that’s why each government is issuing different fact sheets. Which would mean that when Obama is describing the deal what he is really saying is “If Israel wants to keep its country it can keep its country.”
When Obama said that Bergdahl served “with honor and distinction” we made the mistake of assuming he meant service to America.

To envirofascists of the type driving the global warming hoax, all humans are the enemy. From their point of view, the problem isn’t fixed so long as there are any of us left.
Leftist “ethicists” have literally argued in favor of ending the human race.
A scheduled movie screening of “American Sniper” at the University of Michigan was abruptly cancelled Tuesday after nearly 300 students and others complained the film perpetuates “negative and misleading stereotypes” against Muslims.
“The movie American Sniper not only tolerates but promotes anti-Muslim … rhetoric and sympathizes with a mass killer,” according to an online letter circulated among the campus community via Google Docs that garnered the signatures.
“California is a classic case of liberals being willing to sacrifice other people’s lives and livelihoods at the altar of their ideology. It is a tragedy,” … “Despite the fact that California has suffered from droughts for millennia, liberal environmentalists have prevented the building of a single new reservoir or a single new water conveyance system over decades during a period in which California’s population has doubled.”
… because of this, 70 percent of California’s rainfall “washes out to sea” year after year.
We once had a revolution over taxation without representation and now we are a people who accept totalitarianism. We even cheer it on.
Adam Weinstein, of the Gawker, has added his voice to the growing list of greens, who demand a brutal authoritarian response to the vexing problem of people who have a different opinion.
According to Weinstein;
Man-made climate change happens. Man-made climate change kills a lot of people. It’s going to kill a lot more. We have laws on the books to punish anyone whose lies contribute to people’s deaths. It’s time to punish the climate-change liars.
Is this a random series of errors by an incompetent leadership or does some grand, if misconceived, idea stand behind the pattern? To an extent, it’s ineptitude, as when Obama bowed to the Saudi king, threatened Syria’s government over chemical weapons before changing his mind, and now sends the U.S. military to aid Tehran in Iraq and fight it in Yemen.
But there also is a grand idea and it calls for explanation. As a man of the left, Obama sees the United States historically having exerted a malign influence on the outside world. Greedy corporations, an overly-powerful military-industrial complex, a yahoo nationalism, engrained racism, and cultural imperialism combined to render America, on balance, a force for evil.
Being a student of community organizer Saul Alinsky, Obama did not overtly proclaim this view but passed himself off as a patriot, though he (and his charming wife) did offer occasional hints of their radical views about “fundamentally transforming the United States.” On ascending to the presidency, Obama moved slowly, uneager to spread alarm and wanting to be reelected. By now, however, after six full years and only his legacy to worry about, the full-blown Obama is emerging.
The great question ahead is how, in their wisdom, the American people will judge the Obama Doctrine when they next vote for president in 19 months. Will they repudiate his policy of shuffling and contrition, as they comparably did in 1980 when they elected Ronald Reagan over Jimmy Carter? Or will they choose four more years of it, thereby turning the Obama Doctrine into the new norm and Americans into European-style remorseful masochists?
Their verdict in 2016 has potentially world-historical implications.
“This building explosion and the building owner’s links to both Somalia and to terrorist financing should sound alarm bells,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The official explanation that the explosion was due to a natural gas leak doesn’t bear scrutiny. Our investigation has raised questions about this explosion and why state and federal officials were so quick to close this case, tear down the building and leave the community without answers about what really happened in Minneapolis. The local Somali community there has provided many recruits for ISIS. The FBI’s and Justice Department’s stonewall, which is forcing us to go to federal court, suggests these agencies have something to hide.”
The UVA fake rape is even worse than the Duke lacrosse team fake rape. The accused fraternity hadn’t even courted danger by hiring a stripper. They were going about their lives, minding their own business, when, out of the blue, Rolling Stone, the president of their university, and a fiendish coed decided to accuse them of a monstrous crime.
If UVA’s much vaunted “honor code” means anything, it ought to mean the permanent expulsion of a girl who was willing to ruin the lives of men she had never met by accusing them of gang-rape — just to get the attention of a guy she liked.
This is mission accomplished for progressives. When it comes to something like this, Rolling Stone (and others) is much less concerned about honesty in journalism than it is activism through journalism. It’s all about the narrative. I don’t mean to suggest that the writer of this piece wanted the humiliation associated with writing an inaccurate piece. I’m saying that she didn’t bother to even question Jackie’s story because it fit her progressive, victim/oppressor worldview perfectly.
