Scott Ott: How To Reform Our Government, From The Ground Up

In this speech delivered a few days ago to the Lewisville Area Republican club in Texas, Scott Ott describes how true government reform can be achieved. It can be done by focusing our efforts on its foundational level, which we'll call, "We The People." The basis for Ott's thesis is his personal experience as someone who has held elective office. He makes several cogent points in this half hour talk, not the least of which is the necessity of private citizens and local governments to say no when offered Federal Money with strings attached.

Hoover Institution: Stanley Kurtz - Radical In Chief

Stanley Kurtz began researching his book about our 44th President with the intention of proving the charge that Barack Obama is a Socialist to be false. After vetting this President, something that usually happens prior to one being elected to the highest office in the land, Kurtz came to the opposite conclusion. So incomplete was the vetting of Barack Obama, (the extent of which I didn't fully realize until watching this video,) that America wasn't aware of his having attended Occidental College in Southern California prior to his matriculation at Columbia until after his election as our 44th President.

I've met a few internet trolls, and even one idiot stalker who claim the charge of Socialist to be some sort of racial slur, invented only to denigrate a President who is clearly a center right level headed administrator. My pet stalker has even claimed Barack Obama to be a closer match to Milton Friedman's economic policy suggestions than Ronald Reagan. When you stop laughing, go ahead and give Kurtz's interview your attention. As it turns out, deception about their true motivations is a part of the Socialist's strategy to take control of American Politics.

Bill Whittle: The Assault On Civilizational Structures

This week will be only videos, as I'm taking the time necessary to work on the book. Here's the Monday suggestion to replace a couple of hours of network television. Whittle is as eloquent in his argument for Conservatism as anyone has ever been.

Saturday At The Movies: Ann Coulter Discussing Her Latest Book, "Never Trust A Liberal Over Three--Especially A Republican"

Here's this week's alternative for that excruciating hour and a quarter of liberal messaging disguised as network produced entertainment. While I'll admit that Coulter can be somewhat caustic in her approach, even acidic and insulting to those with whom she disagrees, I'd also like to point out that she's usually been proven right after the fact. While her arguments will often be laced with insulting language in her attempts to sound funny and outrageous, if you pay attention to the underlying arguments, they're almost always constructed soundly, cogently, and eloquently. Even when I disagree with Ann Coulter, I do have respect for the argument she's used to press her point.

The Religion Of Peace Strikes Again, This Time In Restive Oklahoma.



So, what's the first thing a Muslim former employee at a food distribution plant does when his co-workers rebuff his efforts to convert them to Islam, wishing to show the virtues and grace his religion offers? (His efforts and persistence to convert his fellow workers was in fact so annoying and offensive to those with whom he worked, that it became a factor in his loss of employment.)

The answer of course, is to start chopping off the heads of those who refused to submit to the demonic moon deity.

Officials with the Moore Police Department say the FBI is now involved in the investigation related to a brutal attack of workers at a food distribution plant.

Sgt. Jeremy Lewis says the alleged suspect, 30-year-old Alton Nolen had just been fired when he drove to the front of the business, hit a vehicle and walked inside.

He walked into the front office area where he met 54-year-old Colleen Hufford and began attacking her with a knife.

Sgt. Lewis confirms the type of knife used in the attack is the same kind used at the plant.

Lewis confirms that Hufford was stabbed several times and that Nolen “severed her head.”

snip:

The FBI is now looking into Nolen’s background after his former co-workers said he tried to convert them to Islam after recently converting himself.

Lewis says the FBI is working in conjunction with the Moore Police Department, especially when it comes to the religious aspect of the case.

Of course, don't expect for the FBI to skip out on the healthy dose of politically correct suicide sugar to help wash this reality medicine down. They're already rushing to tell us that this beheading has nothing to do with the newly converted's belief in Islam.

At this time, it is not known if the suspect’s beliefs played a role in the attack.

Luckily for every other employee at Vaughan Foods, Mark Vaughan, a volunteer reserve Sheriff's Deputy in his spare time, and former CEO of his family's business, happened to have been around when the attack began. He was there along with his fire arm, his right as protected by the Second Amendment. Our young Islamic Jihadi was trying to sever the head of a second lucky woman when Vaughan shot him, thus saving countless other lives.

I know that I feel safer now that our President has stated that these acts of workplace violence have nothing what-so-ever to do with Islam. I'm glad he's gone to the U.N. and announced that the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet Mohamed and his pedophilic thuggish teachings. Clearly, our top national security concern should be those fearsome Amish, or the equally scary Buddhists. Islam after all is a Religion of Peace Pieces.

An Interesting Development Today, Eric Holder To Resign. What Will This Mean?



First, don't allow your hopes for an apolitical Attorney General to carry you away to a place where Unicorns roam the streets of your little town. Who ever fills that post for the remaining couple of years of our national nightmare will still have been appointed by Barack Obama, and my guess is that he'll find someone who is as nearly a perfect Xerox copy of the original as the DNA might allow. Competence will not be the major consideration, politics will.

Secondly, don't expect rapid cooperation all of a sudden on any of those ignored scandals and the various investigations looking into them. I'm certain that the very first conversation President Zero will have with any of the potential nominees prior to nomination will be on the various methods and virtues to slow walking, stone walling, and simple obstruction of any and all such attempts to ferret out crooks and cronies who might be harmed by the nation at large learning the truth.

Lastly, do not read more into this than there is. Holder is not getting out of Dodge just ahead of a scandal ready to break wide open. The GOP has proven time and again that they have zero desire to follow up on any of this, beyond the purely political themselves. Holder doubtlessly feels safe, and even if a veritable ton of evidence proves his guilt in each and every one of these things, he knows that without anyone to actually prosecute him for his misdeeds, he'll not be facing anything more than being heckled slightly at his next commencement gig paying him a cool Quarter Million Bones.

The truth is that Eric Holder has been discussing resignation since 2012 with his boss, and agreed to stay on temporarily in order to help the Zero stall and slow walk the scandals so that only after the next inauguration would anyone ever learn how bad things truly were. With only two years left, and the Democrat's internal polls telling them that they have no chance of holding onto the Senate, (my prediction is at 53 GOP seats, including a loss in North Carolina to Kay Hagan,) Eric's leaving now so that his boss will be able to rubber stamp a nominee in.

I don't know why they would feel the need. Can any of you remember the last time, or any time for that matter, when the GOP failed to approve a Democrat nominee for anything, or even bothered to mount some sort of a challenge?

Even with all of that however, there is a glimmer of hope, if a small one, and here it is. Whoever Barack Obama nominates, they'll still be outside of all of this. As of now, ostensibly, they've not committed, nor been involved with, any felonious acts of their very own. Who ever steps into the role as our nation's top cop, will be clean up until that very moment, probably about 30 seconds into their first day on the job, when he will be faced with the decision of whether to uphold the law, or break it. It will be at that very moment, that a quick decision will need to be made. Are these men, their ideology, worth my personal risk for some serious jail time? What ever this next AG does for his couple of years on the job, he'll answer for it to the next Administration, who ever that happens to be, and possibly won't have the protection of a completely politicized Justice Department and a President looking to protect his own hide. That's the moment that right versus wrong might prevail over taking one for the cause.

At least we won't have Eric Holder telling us the following any more:

Wednesday Afternoon Video: Dennis Prager At The Nixon Library

Here's Dennis Prager at the Nixon Library from a couple of years ago, taking a vicious, and yet eerily objective bite out of liberalism. I like his approach, which reminds me very much of that taken by Milton Friedman when confronting the left. He doesn't make it personal, avoids ad hominems, straw men, and non sequiturs, but instead debates against the ideology of the leftist world view.



My favorite Prager quote was from an episode of Penn and Teller's Bullshit on HBO.

That is a thought so stupid that it could only have been born in the mind of someone who's benefitted from a college education.

Classic stuff, and a sentiment which I'll remember always.
