Freedom Week: Fear And Manipulation Are The Greatest Prison Guards

by Flyovercountry ( 189 Comments › )

In honor of Passover starting this evening, with Tuesday being the first full day, I thought I’d go in a slightly different direction. A completely non religious discussion inspired by a religious event or celebration. Passover, for my non-Jewish friends is at its core, a celebration of freedom. More specifically, it means to those of us who are Jewish, our deliverance from bondage, (enslavement,) by God, and as a consequence of that deliverance, the agreement that we would live our lives according to the laws of the Torah, (the first Five Books of Moses found in the Old Testament of the Bible.) So, for this week, my topics will be a celebration of that spirit of freedom, what it means, how do we achieve it, keep it, and prevent the usurpers of such from gaining a foothold on ideology within our societal thought.

There are two conditions required in order for an entire population to be subjugated. One of those conditions is that there must be a group of elites or a ruling class that wishes to do the subjugating. The second condition that needs met is that the population in question must, for the entire duration of that subjugation, be incapable of doing anything about it. Those doing the subjugating will always live in constant fear of losing their upper hand. For them, Life itself will always be a paradox. Having a population that is totally and forever subordinated, and at the same time, constantly a threat if awakened to the possibility of revolt.

That is why slavers will institute certain precautions among their chattel. Education will be disallowed, most specifically, Slaves will not be allowed to learn the art of reading and writing. Disarmament is a must, as in complete gun control. Fear must be instilled, but a deeper and more subtle fear than what you might believe. Yes, making chattel fearful of immediate reprisal for breaking the rules is a necessary tool, but it is not the complete picture. Even more useful is making the subordinate population fearful for their very existence, thus convincing them to become complicit in their own bondage. Even more insidious, convincing the enslaved that they are not a permanent servant class, and controlling their behavior through mass manipulation techniques taught in every Group Dynamics Class on college campuses across our Fruited Plains.

Let’s explore those last two items in a more focused context. How do potential overlords achieve these ends? How do you convince an entire segment of the human population that without your protection from some perceived boogeyman or collection of unseen dangers, they would perish? How do you get them to be afraid of those boogeymen in the first place, meaning initiate the perception necessary to establish the ruse?

Fear, contrary to what you may believe is not a human failing. It is an evolutionary defense mechanism, which in the past helped us, as a species, to survive. When I managed Woolworth Stores in some of America’s crappiest neighborhoods, I happened upon an alcoholic named Norm. One day Norm came up to me and said, “you should try being an alcoholic John, it gets rid of your inhibitions.” I told Norm that I liked my inhibitions just fine, and that inhibited behavior was in fact what kept mankind alive for from his first appearance on Planet Earth. When you think to yourself, “should I play in traffic, in front of that oncoming tractor trailer?,” it is your inhibitions that say, “probably not a good idea.” It is the fear of falling from great heights that convinces your natural curiosity to not test the laws of physics by throwing yourself off of tall buildings to determine if you might indeed be able to fly. Fear and inhibitions were those very things that made early man not pull the tails of lions, poke bear while sleeping, or tug on Superman’s cape. What makes us different as species, is our ability to temporarily control those hardwired pieces of our natural design. The entire point I’m trying to make here is that those pimping fear in order to control everyone have a distinct advantage to begin with, and that advantage is that we are, all of us, genetically predisposed to be fearful pretty much most of the time.

Being a follower, is also hardwired into most of us. I know that this one hurts to read, and more specifically, most people actually see themselves as leaders. The truth is however, that this is not so. From the beginning of our first steps upright as people, when Simian Chromosomes 2 and 13 fused, forming our Human Chromosome number 2, with its two centromeres and three telomeres, our survival has been enhanced by living in collective groups, rather than individually. For any such social structure, leaders and followers are always established, with genetics playing a particular role in determining alphas and betas, (leaders and followers.) After the Nuremberg Trials, in which the world at large refused to accept officially any defense in which the betas of Germany professed that they were merely followers, a pretty smart guy named Stanley Milgram decided to test if it were possible after all that people in general would really be willing to simply follow a maniacal leader to commit genocide. What he found was to say the least, chilling.

Of Milgram’s original 40 test subjects, 4 were removed from the study due to a breakdown of the control conditions, (the actors involved failed to convince the test subjects of the ruse,) 35 deliberately killed off their victims, and 1 person refused. The single failure by the way was a Catholic Priest, scoring one for those of you with faith. Our humanity really is connected to our faith in a higher power. Also of note, Milgram eventually lost his job at Yale due to the fall out from this experiment, as many of those tested over the course of this study needed psychological counseling due to their realization that they were indeed willing to commit murder simply because a person in authority ordered them to do so. If WWII proved one thing, it is that human beings are predisposed to be followers, and that we are capable of being manipulated in mass, even if that manipulation leads us to do terrible things. For those of you who say it could never happen again, I would simply point to Josef Stalin’s mass murder in the Soviet Union, and Pol Pot’s mass murder in Cambodia, both of which happened after WWII. Both were instances of subordinates being ordered to exterminate millions of people based on ideological or racial grounds, and following those orders without question or failure.

I’m sure that many who read this will be those precious few alphas who are leaders and not followers, but the vast majority will be followers who view themselves as leaders. In Milgram’s experiment, each of the subjects was interviewed prior to the testing, and each one of them professed their belief that they were strong enough to stand out from the crowd and were essentially non-conformist in nature. My personal belief is that the first step in controlling these parts of our nature, genetically coded into us through millennia of natural selection, is recognition of the existence of this truth. Only by recognizing that we are being led against our will, or fearful for possibly irrational reasons, can we overcome the effects of those realities.

Always question the premise for which information is presented to you. Don’t allow for others to frame the debates of the day, dictating terms upon which decisions are made. We, as people with inalienable rights granted by our creator have a say so in matters pertaining to our existence as well, meaning, self determination. As a small lad who was a member of BBYO, (for you Christians out there, think church youth group,) I participated in a leadership weekend. There was some hippie present who taught us a class in Group Dynamics, doubtless based on his work at some leftist corner of what ever institution of higher learning was providing him protection from the consequences of living in the real world. We glossed over the basics of recognizing that when collected together as a group, people will begin to act in concert in certain respects, without recognizing the phenomenon. This behavior will begin to take on a life of its own, and will do so in every instance of any group’s formation. Even today, and in the most unlikeliest of places, I can see evidence of this in motion. Not only can this group behavior be noticed, but it can be manipulated, and most of the members of the group will follow suit. There probably will be a few dissident influences, but there is a methodology of dealing with those as well. The means of dealing with those dissident influences is easier for leaders who are organized, and looking out for them specifically. The success of the dissidents, similarly depends upon the ability to organize, but that success can be accomplished. For what makes groups easy to manipulate, is also the thing that the manipulators fear the most, and that is the recognition of the manipulation. People are generally not pleased to learn that they’ve been conned. They’re downright mad beyond belief if they feel that they’ve been led to a bad end.

Milgram’s test subjects did not just go away after his experiments were done. They contacted the University in New Haven, Connecticut demanding his head upon the realization that he had played with their emotions, consciousness, and pointed out how easily they could be led into tossing aside their humanity. The people of Germany held war crimes trials for decades after the original Nuremberg Trials had ceased, hunting people for prosecution deemed to low on the totem pole to be considered war criminals by the International Court. Truth and knowledge are the tools which will make combating the weapons of the left possible.

Jay Carney ‘s home has Soviet propaganda

No shocker here.

But keen observers may notice the kitchen decor in the photo: Soviet propaganda posters. They really are the perfect pop of color whether you are the dour and sincere Nikita Khrushchev or the cheeky press-wrangler for a president who is constantly accused of being a socialist himself. –Michael Brendan Dougherty

 

I hope some one asks him about this.

Watch for the spin when this one breaks folks. A software bug is going to be blamed for the number that are finally reported on the Obamacare enrollment numbers.

Software Bug Implicated in Massive Duplication of Obamacare Enrollees: Actual Enrollment Less Than 4 Million

Initial reports from an independent audit of the Obamacare enrollment records has revealed bad news for the Obama administration. While it was initially reported that enrollment had exceeded the goal of 7 million individuals, it appears that as many as 3 million of those enrollees may simply be duplicated names.

This shocking miscount was revealed in an independent audit performed by the accounting firm Bryce and Brynwalter. In their report, which will be released publicly next week, the firm details the massive miscount and offers some insights as to how it occurred.

While the details remain unclear, it appears that the duplications arose as a result of the enrollment software mishandling middle names and middle initials. Enrollees that entered their middle name or middle initial were logged twice. For example, John T. Smith would be logged both as John Smith and as John T. Smith.

Everyone with two or more functional braincells knew that Obama was lying when he claimed that Obamacare had reached it’s target goal of signing up 7 million people. Hell, even Obama knew he was lying.

And if you are wondering why all of a sudden Kathleen Sebelius is being fired, err, resigning, wonder no more.

Sebelius to resign as secretary of HHS

So they hit their target of seven million sign-ups and she’s still out the door before the dust settles, eh? Seems … not so triumphant.

Allegedly she jumped rather than waiting to be pushed, but the Times catches something I missed last week. She wasn’t at the Rose Garden ceremony where O declared Mission Accomplished after they hit seven million. Hard to believe she wouldn’t want to be there to join the victory lap after taking so much grief from so many sides for so long over the website. Was she not invited?

Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy…

Last month, Ms. Sebelius approached Mr. Obama and began a series of conversations about her future, Mr. McDonough said. The secretary told the president that the March 31 deadline for sign-ups under the health care law — and rising enrollment numbers — provided an opportunity for change, and that he would be best served by someone who was not the target of so much political ire, Mr. McDonough said.

“What was clear is that she thought that it was time to transition the leadership to somebody else,” he said. “She’s made clear in other comments publicly that she recognizes that she takes a lot of the incoming. She does hope — all of us hope — that we can get beyond the partisan sniping.”

Sure… she voluntarily resigned, after promising that she would be around long after November. This is called damage control. The Obamanation Administration knows that the truth is coming out and want to have Sebelius safely out of office and beyond the reach of a congressional subpoena.

Addendum: Is this Obama Waco/Ruby Ridge, or the start of a new American Revolutionary/Civil War?

A fight is brewing in Nevada and it looks to have the potential for bloodshed on a par with the Waco and Ruby ridge Massacres.

Militias head to Nevada rancher’s standoff with feds: We’re not ‘afraid to shoot’

Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s decades-long battle against the federal government over grazing rights has heated to the point where militia groups have joined in and taken up spots against the feds who’ve circled his land — and talk is, they’re not afraid to open fire.

A spokesman for the one of the militia groups said as much to local 8 News Now: I’m not “afraid to shoot,” he said.

Margaret Houston, Mr. Bundy’s sister and a cancer survivor, said at a town hall gathering this week that the situation “was like a war zone” and that she felt “like I was not in the United States,” The Daily Mail reported.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal described it this way: “Serious bloodshed was narrowly avoided,” in a story about how dogs were unleashed on a woman who was pregnant while the rancher’s son was hit with a taser.

On Tuesday, armed Bureau of Land Management agents stormed Mr. Bundy’s property, escalating a court dispute that’s wound for two decades over the rancher’s refusal to pay for grazing fees.

Mr. Bundy’s view is that he owns his property — that it’s been in his family’s hands for centuries — and he doesn’t have to pay for his own 900-head of cattle to graze on the 600,000 acre Gold Butte property.

The government, meanwhile, says the land belongs to it, and agents have swooped and circled, closing off roadway access to the property and flying helicopters overhead the family’s home.

The Feral government is spoiling for a fight, they didn’t buy 6 billions rounds of ammunition for their Schutzstaffel agents just for target practice. How do I know this? Because you don’t use Hollow-point rounds for target practice. Nor am I the only one who thinks that this is the case.

Tea Party Lawmaker: Nev. Cattle Roundup ‘Reminded Me Of Tiananmen Square’

PHOENIX (CBS Las Vegas/AP) — A group of Republican Arizona lawmakers are upset with a brewing showdown in Nevada between the federal government and a rancher who claims rights to graze his cattle in a remote area about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

Rep. Bob Thorpe of Flagstaff said Thursday he is among about three dozen state legislators sending a letter to federal and Nevada officials about the standoff between rancher Cliven Bundy and Bureau of Land Management officials.

Federal officials say Bundy has racked up more than $1.1 million in unpaid grazing fees over the years while disregarding several court orders to remove his animals.

Thorpe says lawmakers aren’t arguing over whether Bundy has broken laws or violated grazing agreements. They’re more concerned with what they perceive as government heavy-handedness and how officials are restricting protesters to “free speech zones” near the closed off federal land.

Tea Party Republican state Rep. Kelly Townsend tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal she was shocked after seeing the video where federal police used a stun gun on one of Bundy’s sons.

“Watching that video last night created a visceral reaction in me,” Townsend told the Review-Journal. “It sounds dramatic, but it reminded me of Tiananmen Square. I don’t recognize my country at this point.”

When Parody Eclipses Reality

Political Cartoons by Steve Kelley

This one should be clear. My problem with the above cartoon is not so much that it isn’t funny. My problem is that it’s most definitely a true representation of the view held by our President and his Attorney General. My problem is that it’s in no way an exaggeration. It is an accurate description of the state of things today in regards to our Executive Branch in general, and with our Department of Justice in particular. Any notice of this state of affairs brings choruses of, “don’t watch Fox News,” as if that’ll solve somehow, the growing problem of a completely lawless Presidential Administration. That somehow, we’ll be free from a level of corruption so pervasive that Caligula and Nero would probably be lecturing our current defacto man child ruler on how to at least appear to be subservient to those for whom he purportedly works, (“we the people.”)

Today, the House Ways and Means Committee took the extraordinary step, and as far as I can tell this marks another first for any Administration, of voting to charge an officer of the IRS with Charges of Criminal Contempt, and to formally ask that the Department of Justice file other criminal charges to add to Lois Lerner’s Contempt Charge. Tomorrow, the full House Membership will undoubtedly follow suit, and for the first time in U.S. History, an officer of the IRS will face real jail time for official work duties performed at that nefarious federal agency. Bear in mind, one of the Articles of Impeachment brought against Richard Nixon was for his discussing, but not actually following through on, using the IRS as a political weapon with which to intimidate and thwart political adversaries.

You may recall that this is one of those things which so outraged our President that he promised to, “get to the bottom,” of what was going on within his own Treasury Department. About a year later, and he went on television and announced that there was not even the slightest hint of a smidgen of wrong doing at the IRS. It must have been some exhaustive investigation, since Lois Lerner had already invoked her Fifth Amendment Rights while under subpoena to testify in front of the Congressional Ways and Means Committee. For those of you who do not know what this means, Lois basically stated that if she answered any questions, she believed sincerely that those answers if honest, would lead to her being convicted of a felony for which she had not yet been charged. So, there’s that smoking gun. For good measure in the does-not-compute-department-of-bizarre-attempts-to-cover-things-up, she invoked her Fifth Amendment Rights once more, after President Zero made his not-even-a-smidgen-of-wrongdoing statement in his interview with Bill O’Reilly. So, there’s the repeat of that smoking gun.

As much as I’d like to celebrate the fact that our House has finally, and after nearly four years of looking into the lawlessness of this Administration, done something that resembles holding anyone to account for their actions, there is still a huge jackass shaped problem in the room. That would be, who runs this most politicized Department of Justice in U.S. History. Does anyone really believe that Eric Holder will allow this to be prosecuted in an honest and forthright manner? Remember, Eric Holder handled that Obama effort to get to the bottom of things that found not a smidgen of wrongdoing personally. Eric Holder also has his own criminal contempt charge in place, and has been acting as Attorney General under this cloud for nearly two years, another historic first by the way for Team Zero. Holder’s obvious options here will be to drop the ball completely and refuse to prosecute. He can take up the prosecution, and sandbag the process, guaranteeing that Lerner is cleared of all allegations and protected from further prosecution via the double jeopardy rules in place. Or they can throw Lerner under Barack’s Bus, and promise her that if she takes the buck, they’ll pardon or commute on the Bamster’s way out of town. No matter how you slice it, we ain’t getting satisfaction on this one, not until we win enough elections to chase these pigs out of town.

Special Note: Since I said elections, and moreover committed the sin against the third party zealots of placing the concept of winning elections within a verboten framework, using the term we, indicating that I am in some way rooting for Republicans, let me do my third party penance now. All hail the Gods of the Third Party. Hail to thee, hail to thee, hail to thee! I hope that’s sufficed.

In order to drive this point home, Here’s a list of firsts achieved by this historic Presidency thus far. Please pay particular attention to the top two sections, which are all examples of the Obama Administration’s lawlessness. It just doesn’t get any better than this folks, I can’t remember when I’ve been so proud.

The never ending corruption story.

Erick Holder, the Attorney General aka Obamanation Administration Department of Injustice and Reichsführer of the Schutzstaffel once again proved what a Gestapo thug he is when he exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. It seems Gohmert had the temerity to ask questions that Erick Holder did not want asked.

Eric Holder explodes at GOP rep: ‘You don’t want to go there, buddy!’

In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal.

“I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said.

“You don’t want to go there, buddy! You don’t want to go there, okay,” Holder shot back.

“I don’t want to go there?” the Texas Republican responded.

“No,” Holder said, leaning forward in his seat.

With recent revelation regarding California State Senator Leland Yee’s involvement in illegal Gun running, it should come as no surprise that Holder is displaying this kind of Nazi hostility. The last thing that Holder wants right now, is more questions being asked about Operation Fast and Furious.

Questions that might lead from California’s Leland Yee, back through the documents that Holder is in contempt of Congress for illegally withhold right straight to the Whitehouse.

Operation “Fast and Furious” The California connection.

Anyone want to dare to suggest, given that all the decisions made in the Phoenix “Fast and Furious” were made in San Fransisco (can you say, Ninth Circuit Court?) and Los Angeles that the FBI/ATF/DOJ in California didn’t do all the exact same things that they did in Phoenix? Have you been to California lately?

2009

Phoenix
 Developed a strategy of intelligence-lead policing whereby the Field Intelligence Group will analyze and disseminate leads, as the point of contact for other field divisions and agencies.  Two agents each dedicated full time to the Phoenix and Tucson OCDETF.  Border liaison officers in Phoenix, Tucson, and Yuma, Arizona.  Embedded a representative from the Mexico Attorney General’s office (CENAPI).*  Conducted a conference call with Los Angeles and San Francisco Field Divisions.  Industry Operations would target high-risk gun dealers for inspections based on risk factors found through intelligence.

Los Angeles
 Field Intelligence Group will analyze information and leads to assign to field offices for investigation.  Conference calls will be conducted between the Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Phoenix field divisions for coordination and information sharing between field divisions.  Border liaison officer in San Diego, California.  Firearms trafficking group (San Diego I) works with local law enforcement, ICE, the FBI, and through the border liaison, Mexican law enforcement  Will coordinate with U.S. Attorneys and county District Attorneys to address issues in cases so fast and successful prosecutions can occur

As the PDF document released by U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General Evaluation and Inspections Division makes very clear there was a very substantial coordination of the “Fast and Furious” operation in Phoenix by the San Fransisco and Los Angeles of the FBI/ATF/DOJ.

There own statements are damning.

Yet, we found weaknesses in how ATF implemented Project Gunrunner as a multi-agency effort. Although, as noted above, ATF has increased some program activities during Project Gunrunner, ATF’s focus remains largely on inspections of gun dealers and investigations of straw purchasers, rather than on higher-level traffickers, smugglers, and the ultimate recipients of the trafficked guns.4

For example, we found that 68 percent of Project Gunrunner cases are single-defendant cases, and some ATF managers discourage field personnel from conducting the types of complex conspiracy investigations that target higher-level members of trafficking rings. Federal prosecutors told us that directing the efforts of Project Gunrunner toward building larger, multi-defendant conspiracy cases would better disrupt trafficking organizations.
Moreover, although ATF has had a long-stated intent to make fuller use of the resources of the Department’s Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) Program to conduct more complex conspiracy investigations, it has not done so. This is in part due to ATF’s focus on conducting fast investigations and also due to misunderstandings among ATF field personnel about what kinds of cases are eligible for OCDETF and whether OCDETF cases are counted as Project Gunrunner cases by ATF’s internal performance metrics.

You can bet your ass that the GOP Elitist Aristocrats have no more interests in seeing anyone investigate a connection between Leland Yee and the Holder Department of Injustice or the Whitehouse than the Whitehouse or it’s Schutzstaffel Reichsführer. A connection would mean that they would be forced to do something, and the only legal remedy for an Obama direct involvement would be Impeachment.

Al Sharpton was a FBI snitch

by Rodan ( 101 Comments › )
Filed under Communism, Crime, History, Marxism, Progressives at April 7th, 2014 - 7:00 pm

Al Sharpton always appeared to be a rat to me. I have always suspected many of these “community organizer” types were government moles. That is why no matter how many times they agitate, they don’t face serious jail time. Now my suspicions about Sharpton have been confirmed.

Reports are now circulating that Al Sharpton was a FBI informant. For a number of years in the mid 80′s he recorded conversations with members of the Genovese crime family in the NY area. Al Sharpton was more than just a street agitator, he was working for the very system he condemned.

Later this week, Obama will travel to New York and appear in a Manhattan hotel ballroom at the side of the man whom FBI agents primarily referred to as “CI-7”–short for confidential informant #7–in secret court filings. In those documents, investigators vouched for him as a reliable, productive, and accurate source of information about underworld figures.

The ex-informant has been one of Obama’s most unwavering backers, a cheerleader who has nightly bludgeoned the president’s Republican opponents in televised broadsides. For his part, Obama has sought the man’s counsel, embraced him publicly, and saluted his “commitment to fight injustice and inequality.” The president has even commented favorably on his friend’s svelte figure, the physical manifestation of a rehabilitation effort that coincided with Obama’s ascension to the White House. This radical makeover has brought the man wealth, a daily TV show, bespoke suits, a luxury Upper West Side apartment, and a spot on best seller lists.

Beginning in the mid-1980s and spanning several years, Sharpton’s cooperation was fraught with danger since the FBI’s principal targets were leaders of the Genovese crime family, the country’s largest and most feared Mafia outfit. In addition to aiding the FBI/NYPD task force, which was known as the “Genovese squad,” Sharpton’s cooperation extended to several other investigative agencies.

TSG’s account of Sharpton’s secret life as “CI-7” is based on hundreds of pages of confidential FBI affidavits, documents released by the bureau in response to Freedom of Information Act requests, court records, and extensive interviews with six members of the Genovese squad, as well as other law enforcement officials to whom the activist provided assistance.

Like almost every other FBI informant, Sharpton was solely an information source. The parameters of his cooperation did not include Sharpton ever surfacing publicly or testifying on a witness stand. 

Genovese squad investigators–representing both the FBI and NYPD–recalled how Sharpton, now 59, deftly extracted information from wiseguys. In fact, one Gambino crime family figure became so comfortable with the protest leader that he spoke openly–during ten wired face-to-face meetings–about a wide range of mob business, from shylocking and extortions to death threats and the sanity of Vincent “Chin” Gigante, the Genovese boss who long feigned mental illness in a bid to deflect law enforcement scrutiny. As the mafioso expounded on these topics, Sharpton’s briefcase–a specially customized Hartman model–recorded his every word.

Sharpton is a 2 faced rat who deserves no respect.

Kurt Lewin’s America: Brave New Goose Stepping World It Is. No Freedom For You!

Brendan Eich

Just as a recap, here’s who Kurt Lewin was. His expertise was in how to control entire populations, both in thought and in deed. The Political Left has been using his techniques for decades now, and most recently, it caused the resignation of Brendan Eich, the former CEO and founder of Mozilla Firefox. I don’t want you to feel too sorry for Eich, he’ll be fine on a personal level, as his accomplishments will insure his financial well being for a long time to come. It is we Americans, as a society at large who will pay the price for this latest assault upon our formerly free nature. Not only have we lost a pioneer in the technology products world, a visionary who might possibly deny us his genius and propensity for further invention, but future Eichs as well may decide that the environment here in America is no longer a conducive atmosphere for their efforts to continue, and that’s one of the real dangers here.

We’ve reached that very place in America that our Founders warned us about. The tyrannical have over run the place, and they’ve put us on notice. The message is clear, comply not only with deed, but with your very thought as well. It’s no wonder that our President does not believe in American Exceptionalism, he is forbidden by his political bent, which is itself as important a take away as any which could be gleaned from the study of the Marxist philosophy. For those of you who are leftists and reading this, American Exceptionalism does not mean that we are great as a society merely because of the accidental place of our birth. It refers to our tradition of allowing each man to be free to pursue his own self interests, thereby encouraging him to become as productive a member of society and serve the well being of his fellow citizens as he possibly could become. It refers to Adam Smith’s, “invisible hand.” guiding each individual to serve the public interest by acting on his own needs and desires. No system of governance and economics so far devised by man in any context can hold a candle to the creative and productive forces which are unleashed when free market capitalism is allowed to reign. The lens of history has been crystal clear on this point, no where on Earth has the ordinary man benefited and improved nearly so well as in those societies which employ economic and social freedom. The grinding poverty and social duress which is decried as unjust by the political left are most prevalent in those very societies which employ the socioeconomic systems that they advocate.

Brendan Eich donated to a political campaign six years ago. His crime against humanity was nothing more than his exercise of his First Amendment Right to free speech. He supported the side that was campaigning against California’s adoption of Gay Marriage as an institution which would be considered the same thing as heterosexual marriage. Forgive me if I got the issue wrong, it’s not something that I consider to be even slightly important. Mr. Eich did however, at least to the tune of $1000, which apparently he donated to an unapproved side of the public debate.

47 states so far have held elections on this issue, and in all 47 of those elections, Gay Marriage as an issue has lost, and lost big. Yet, Brendan Eich has been smeared with the intolerant brush, and been forced out of the company that he founded, no longer in charge of his very creation. (Be careful with your celebration though tolerati crowd, the same thing happened to Steven Jobs, twice. After being ousted by his opponents from control of his company, he was twice brought back from exile to run things.) What we have here is a clear case of a very vocal and violent minority forcing the adoption of their desired actions, and most importantly opinions upon the rest of us.

Eich’s ousting is a clear indication to any future person contemplating a political donation or even stance that runs contrary to the approved script edicted to us from the political left. There will be dire consequences for your heresy. Your opinions must either be comported to match ours, or you must remain silent. Failure to behave in this manner will result in economic hardship, loss of job, loss of freedom, loss of well being. In order to teach you what will be approved of in the future, you are all sentenced to 8 hours or more of diversity training.

From the Heritage Foundation Article linked to above:

Before Eich resigned, he pointed out that he had kept his personal beliefs out of Mozilla and that they were not relevant to his job as CEO. He was exactly right, although that did not prevent him from resigning.

In a startling display of irony that was obviously lost on her, Mozilla Executive Chairwoman Mitchell Baker, who approved of Eich’s resignation, said it was necessary because “preserving Mozilla’s integrity was paramount.” She seems not to recognize that forcing a founder of the company to resign because of his personal beliefs that have nothing to do with his qualifications as a corporate officer is the exact opposite of “integrity.”

Eich is certainly not alone in his predicament. As The Heritage Foundation previously pointed out, other supporters of Proposition 8 in California have been subjected to harassment, intimidation, vandalism, racial scapegoating, blacklisting, loss of employment, economic hardships, angry protests, violence, death threats, and anti-religious bigotry. All committed by individuals claiming they are simply trying to gain “acceptance” and who complain about the supposed intolerance of society over their lifestyle.

Make no mistake about it, Mr. Eich’s crime here was not support of the opposition to Gay Marriage, his crime was heresy.

I would like to remind everyone at this point that way back in the ancient year of 2008, President Obama made opposition to Gay Marriage an integral part of his campaign platform. The difference of course was that Brendan Eich at least was being honest with his opinion at the time, and our President was merely pandering for votes. Yet, when Eich lost his job, maintenance of integrity was proclaimed. Integrity of course has never been associated by anyone with respect to Barack Obama, who’s position on the issue evolved over time with polling data that suggested such evolution was safe to admit to having undergone.

Personally, I could not care less about any issue facing us today, than I do about whether or not Gay people should be afforded the right to term their relationships as marriage or not. I guess, if they want to feel trapped and miserable, let them have at it. What does worry me beyond belief however is the reaction to people speaking their minds on the subject. So we may disagree with them, but Mozilla is a fine product, and Brendan Eich is a visionary who’s accomplishment should be celebrated, and not thwarted. My guess is that there were many Gay people who benefited from Eich’s creation, even though they disagreed with him, and he with their lifestyle. Such is the beauty of our society, even people who disagree can benefit from trade with those with whom they disagree. Henry Ford was as virulent an Anti-Semite as could have ever existed, and yet, many Jewish people I know of today drive Ford automobiles, and have been well served by doing so.

We’ll turn now to our old friend Milton Friedman again, who can explain this better than I can with his adaptation of Leonard Read’s essay entitled, “I, Pencil.”

The Homosexual Communities Nazi Schutzstaffel strikes again.

When California passed Proposition 8 the Militant Schutzstaffel wing of the Homosexual community went bat shit crazy. they engaged in tactics that can only be described as morally reprehensible and disgusting. Publicly publishing the names of individuals and business owners who had donated money to support Proposition 8. Now, they are proving that just like the Nazi’s and Stalin, they have very long memories and do not forgive or forget. It isn’t good enough that a Homosexual Judge in California violated every single precedent of Jurisprudence in overturning Proposition 8. Now they are once again going after individuals who donated in support of Proposition 8.

Mozilla CEO “resigns” after uproar over his opposition to gay marriage

In several interviews this week, Eich had insisted that he would not step down from the job he was only recently appointed to, due to the intense backlash over a $1,000 donation he made in 2008 in support of the ballot measure to ban gay marriage…

In an interview this morning, Mozilla Executive Chairwoman Mitchell Baker said that Eich’s ability to lead the company that makes the Firefox Web browser had been badly damaged by the continued scrutiny over the hot-button issue, which had actually been known since 2012 inside the Mozilla community.

“It’s clear that Brendan cannot lead Mozilla in this setting,” said Baker, who added that she would not and could not speak for Eich. “The ability to lead — particularly for the CEO — is fundamental to the role and that is not possible here.”…

Baker — who became emotional at one point during the interview — noted that she was “doing a fair amount of self-reflection and I am wondering how did I miss it that this would matter more when he was the CEO.”

On the left side of the political spectrum, the progressive diversity inclusive oh so tolerant have proven time and time again, that there is nothing more intolerant than who scream for tolerance. Among those screaming for tolerance, none scream louder or longer than the Homosexual community, and none while demanding tolerance have shown themselves to be more intolerant.

Lib Rag Slate Says Mozilla CEO Just The Start, Calls For Getting Every Executive Who Donated To Pro-Traditional Marriage Group Fired…

Via Slate:

Brendan Eich is gone. The creator of JavaScript and co-founder of mozilla.org has quit as Mozilla’s CEO, forced out by the uproar over a donation he made six years ago to a ballot measure against gay marriage. There’s no record of Eich discriminating against gay employees—“I never saw any kind of behavior or attitude from him that was not in line with Mozilla’s values of inclusiveness,” says the company’s chairwoman, Mitchell Baker. [...]

Some of my colleagues are celebrating. They call Eich a bigot who got what he deserved. I agree. But let’s not stop here. If we’re serious about enforcing the new standard, thousands of other employees who donated to the same anti-gay ballot measure must be punished.

More than 35,000 people gave money to the campaign for Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot measure that declared, “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” You can download the entire list, via the Los Angeles Times, as a compressed spreadsheet. Each row lists the donor’s employer. If you organize the data by company, you can add up the total number of donors and dollars that came from people associated with that company.

The first thing you’ll notice, if you search for Eich, is that he’s the only Mozilla employee who gave to the campaign for Prop 8. His $1,000 was more than canceled out by three Mozilla employees who donated to the other side.

The next thing you’ll notice is that other companies, including other tech firms, substantially outscored Mozilla in pro-Prop 8 contributions attributed to their employees. That includes Adobe, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Oracle, Sun Microsystems, and Yahoo, as well as Disney, DreamWorks, Gap, and Warner Bros.

Thirty-seven companies in the database are linked to more than 1,300 employees who gave nearly $1 million in combined contributions to the campaign for Prop 8. Twenty-five tech companies are linked to 435 employees who gave more than $300,000. Many of these employees gave $1,000 apiece, if not more. Some, like Eich, are probably senior executives.

Why do these bigots still have jobs? Let’s go get them.

This is exactly what it has come to folks. Blackmail, intimidation and retribution worthy of the Nazi Schutzstaffel, all supposedly in the name of tolerance. If your sincerely held religious beliefs do not agree with those of the Gay Schutzstaffel, then you absolutely must be destroyed in public. This is the Homosexual communities idea of tolerance. You WILL not only tolerate their lifestyle, you will embrace it, or they will destroy you, while they on the other hand are free to be as viciously intolerant of your religious beliefs as suits them and their agenda.

Tolerant? No, the Homosexual Communities Schutzstaffel are as tolerant as the Nazi Schutzstaffel were on Kristallnacht.

How Far Will Progressives Go To Rewrite History?

Political Cartoons by Henry Payne

Apparently, the answer comes in at a 4500 years at least. I haven’t seen the highly touted, “Noah,” but I have read some reviews. From what I’ve read about the movie, I believe I’ll hold onto my half sawbuck, and wait for it to appear every other day on one of my movie blitzing cable channels. Word has it that the great flood referred to in the Book of Genesis, Bereishis for those of you who prefer the Hebrew pronunciation to the English, was the result of God, or Hashem if you would, venting his wrath over mankind’s disregard for environnazi compliance. That’s right, it would seem that God was ticked off over global warming even way back in the day. Man kind’s general wicked nature you say? Well, that was second fiddle to us enjoying way too much, the fruits brought forth by farting cows. (I’m only guessing at the farting cows bit, seeing as how SUV’s, air conditioning, steel mills, fracing, and bituminous coal burning power plants had not yet been conceived of.) As some sort of Hollyweird bonus, Noah it would appear had some sort of Malthusian death wish for even his own kin.

For years now, I’ve looked at the Creationists and the global warming mongers through the very same lens. Both groups are as anti-science as would be possible, and both have pointed fingers at the other group and chided them for being anti-science. The huge difference of course is this, at least the creationists know deep down, that their faith is what is driving their belief system. I have always held that faith, when properly applied, is a wonderful gift that man kind has been given. It gives its adherents strength, courage, and the ability to face adversity with a resolve not easily attained. I’ve also always maintained that faith should be recognized as exactly that, for what it truly is. It is a belief that has no logical explanation, and is rooted only in the inspiration of the divine. Attempts to explain it logically and in terms of science will always fall short of that measure.

On the other hand, not recognizing faith for what it truly is can lead to some pretty poor applications. Belief in man made global warming despite the actual evidence presented, is also a faith. The difference is that faith masquerading as science is far more likely to lead to a Malthusian end. In the movie, “Noah,” for example, the character loosely inspired by the story from the Bible, takes it upon himself to make certain that no human beings survive the great flood, and only his weakness allows for the continuation of man kind, against God’s Malthusian will. Global warming you see, really has the big guy ticked off. All of this is presented to us with the continuing premise that Noah himself is the hero who can’t quite complete his mission of genocide.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but what exactly was wrong with the original point of the story, that man kind had become so wicked and defiant towards the forces of good that the almighty decided a do-over was necessary? Why has Hollyweird taken it upon itself to correct the greatest story ever told, and rewrite that particular part into a tale of environmental hysteria? For years, we have had the show business types look down their noses at people comfortable with their faith and declare us all to be of questionable intelligence. Truthfully speaking, I am a lot more comfortable with them on the other side of the divide, standing as an adversary that I can clearly see. What has prompted this sudden co-opting of our faith, to where they must change the nature of God himself to serve their nihilistic fantasies?

According to this new sect of the Judeo Christian faith, no technological advancements of any kind are allowed. Although, one must be forced to speculate on what kind of technology might have been around 4500 years ago that would cause the alpha and omega to get his panties up in a bunch sufficiently to flush the cosmic toilet? I believe that this movie does serve as a rather dubious landmark in that highway between biblical allegory and the shock jock style of low brow entertainment. It is proof once again that as long as you offer up big screen style of special effects or dogs wearing hats complete with the Benny Hill theme song, little in the way of actual thought need be placed in the, “art’s,” messaging. more importantly however, is the reason behind why the Bible was chosen as the story to change.

For years I have watched as Hollyweird destroyed books I’ve read. Puzzled by their adaptations, I have often asked why in the world they bothered to keep the title at all, if their intention was to tell a different, or even in some cases an opposite story. It’s not just books either, but often times other movies that are tweaked to meet the more politically correct vision of the show biz left. Peter Jackson read the LOTR trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien and discovered that Frodo was not the most adventurous and toughest little Hobbit, but instead some sort of cross between a whiny little wimp and a brain dead pampered plutocrat. Godzilla in the late 90′s grew breasts, changed sexes, and rampaged about, not because of the terrors of nuclear proliferation, but because, “she,” merely wanted to lay eggs and nest in California, oh and to demonstrate that destroying the world could be accomplished by women too. Political messages insinuated into television shows has been the cause of me personally boycotting dozens of what at one time were my favorite hour long blocks of down time.

This is something different here. This is the changing of a book held by its readership to be sacred. Artistic license is not appreciated by those who consider the Bible to be word of God, no matter what the intentions of those who produced this movie may have been. (Artistic License by the way, was the description of Darren Aronofsky, the film’s main screen writer, director, and producer.) This movie is a devious attempt to convert Christians and Jews to Aronofsky’s religion of choice, the Malthusian church of Global Warming. In stead of believing in a Biblical commandment for men to be fruitful and multiply, Aronofsky sees a God who believes that man kind is somehow a cancer upon his otherwise perfect Utopia, and should be doing what ever is possible to prevent another of our numbers from ever being born at all.

There are some who might see this clap trap as being part of some concerted effort among an organized leftist movement to destroy the faith of an entire nation, but I disagree. I believe it to be the singular sickening vision of one little man who was mistakenly given a platform for his obsession. Either way, I won’t waste my time or money. (I offer my apologies to Emma Watson and Russel Crowe, who’s individual performances I’ve read almost salvage what otherwise would have been a completely irredeemable piece of crap.)
