There are four areas in this presidential election must be addressed and are absolutely critical to survival of the American nation. They are:

1) Economics

2) Development of a realistic view of islam

3) Immigration

4) The proliferation and increasing dominance of irrational, countercultural, life styles with oblivious self-concern for anything except transient amusement and with disregard for long term consequences or effect

These are not presented here as representing an order of importance. They are of equal importance in producing catastrophically destructive results upon the American nation if not addressed adequately. Some of these categories interact with, or are categorically interwoven with, others. This is why one-issue political candidates are entirely dangerous. The political candidate who primarily campaigns loudly on a single issue whole being ignorant of, or ignoring, other critical issues is just as destructive or subversive as the candidate who by purpose or mental incapability rejects all of them. Similarly, the voter who evaluates, or votes for, a political candidate on the basis of a single issue, or part of a single issue, while neglecting the whole, either though incapability, or excessive focus, is equally dangerous or debilitating to the nation as is the voter who through ideological adherence steadfastly stands in rejection to all of it. The whole is what counts.

To make a big splash on the scene with one area of concentration is a nice political move but a disaster because while it might win votes from naive goofs, the other three de-emphasize or neglected areas will destroy the country. Candidates should not be running only to win office and achieve a soft exalted position by shooting their mouth off but to do the best to save this nation. This is said in the grim realization that it is a novel approach to politics and politicians.

It’s long past time to begin not just evaluating political candidates on one or two lines from a speech but begin evaluating candidates by their past record of activity and the consistency their past voting record. A couple of one or two sentence lines or quips before a crowd of impressionable idiots just awaiting the chance to cheer him or her on, means nothing. Fast superficial glib talk is not a firm commitment to do anything. He or she should be able to go into detail with depth as evidence of having studied an area with seriousness. An examination of personal history and voting record in office should indicate long term commitment. It’s not what a politician says, it’s what he has done, is doing, and shows serious intention of doing that counts.

And incidentally, neither does politicized poetry and imagery count for much. Nuts and bolts is all that counts. Standing front of mock-ups of Greek temples, statements about bringing America together, the torch has been passed to a new generation, vibrance of certain American subcultures, vague statements that the challenges facing America can be met, or declaring America is the greatest country in the world to cheers are pap. Empty theatrical repertory may be the answer to getting elected to office by impressionable halfwits, but it is not the answer to complex serious pressing problems.

Economics>

This nation has been on a course of economic downturn for 50 years. Recessions have become steadily deeper and of longer duration. Recoveries have become progressively weaker. The present recession is the worst since the great depression of the ‘30s with few indications of serious relief on the horizon.

We've been in a period of defiantly obvious seriously self-destructive and terminal economics for over twenty years viewed with an apparent sense of amusement or even celebration by our supposed leadership. There are too many prima donna incompetent CEOs seeking to be glamorous movie stars or TV personalities instead of business executives, too many flashy people taking over businesses they don't know how to run, too many atrocious and intrusional government decisions, too few workers of seriousness and competence, a fop educational system which does not train people to be capable of anything, too many subversive hostile union leaders showboating and acting out contentiously for the sake of being contentious with disregard for the good of the workers they supposedly represent but actually care nothing about, and a population of deficient child-like young adults too possessed by unrealistic ambition and fantasy to take on immediate positions as anything but strutting kings and barons. And too little elucidation or criticism of any of it. America, or for that matter any type of economic system, can not survive with a significant proportion of people with such mentalities.

To great extent this downward trend represents the coming of age, and the assuming of power, by the sixties and seventies generations who made their first presence as a power seriously known from a solid grip within the ‘72 Democratic convention where thoroughly disgusted labor leader George Meany made the observation that the Democrats were primarily concerned about “whether girls should marry girls and boys should marry boys” while the economy of the country was heading down the drain. That countercultural thrust continued with the election of Jimmy Carter. Reagan represented an awakening to the seriousness of that takeover threat by a generation that was being displaced and pushed aside. Reagan essentially founded a de facto third party around himself which moved in against strong imbedded opposition to occupy the Republican party for eight years. With the retirement of Reagan, and with the succession of George Bush, the Republican party was returned to the self serving good ol’ boys network and politics as usual with a consequent prevailing of the of the progressively deteriorating consequences seen since then. It will soon be 24 years since we’ve had a mature, serious, intelligent president. With the aging and death or physical debilitation of many people who voted Reagan into the presidency, the possibility exists that there are too few people remaining who want a mature, serious, intelligent, honest president to elect one. Reagan was the last gasp of a mentality that built America, won two world wars, survived a great depression and rebuilt their country. Our present and recent presidential candidates are running more as superficial pretty entertainment figures than as serious people concerned about the future of this nation.

Many parents of the baby boom generation vowed their children would never undergo the hardships their parents went through. Childhood was extended and the teenage period became an enjoyable profession instead of a period of serious preparation and assumption of additional responsibilities leading to adulthood. A life of irresponsibility and ease made easier by the diversion of the entertaining new TV media. With guidance from the old political left many baby boomers turned against their parents like angry rattlesnakes when surprised parents tried to reason with their mentally incompetent offspring at too late a date. By then the damage resulting from excessive ease and absence of supervision or accountability had created a condition that was permanent. Many of the young had never left the immature superficiality of teenage thinking and impulsiveness. Many in a generation grew up under a rootless and irresponsible separate teen and young adult subculture which had more influence upon them than the adult community or preparation for serious adulthood ever did. Bill Clinton was a generational representative of the baby boomers. As their representative he was not a disappointment. He proudly converted the White House into his personal whorehouse with the help of rationalizations made by Hillary and cannon-mouthed spokesman James Carville. Criticism rolled off the Clintons like water off a duck’s back because many of his supporters were doing the same thing. The Clintons remain popular to this day for no good reason.

Ross Perot made some highly intelligent observations on economics 20 years ago that should have been more thoroughly considered and implemented. If Americans had done so, the economic catastrophe we have gone through and are now facing could have been ameliorated or prevented.

We’ve shipped entire major businesses and industries out of the country along with the jobs that went with them. The result has been conversion of entire sections of the country into impoverished rust belts.

Make no mistake about it. It will require 40 years to rebuild the American economy to what it once was. Slick politician con men like to promise a strong economy in a couple of years in order to get elected to a career in office. Simultaneously, people want to hear that the economy can be turned around in several years and be comforted --until it doesn’t happen. It won’t happen. It can’t happen. Poor decisions by the government, or poor decisions by our business leadership, or poor decisions by the ordinary people, bear a similarity to a house fire. A fire in a home for half an hour or an hour can produce damage that will take months to repair. Bad economic decisions, or for that matter bad decisions in any other area of life, can produce destruction or hardship that will take many years or decades to remedy. Over past decades Americans have made a pile of poor decisions collectively, organizationally, and individually, backed up by a poor system of leaderless runamok social psychology and rationalizations. When I say social psychology, I don’t mean social psychology in the academic sense of formal course work, but in the sense of widespread acceptance and practice in the general population. It’s time to get back to basics and basic reality.

Let’s begin with the basic principle that we must manufacture here in America what we use here in America. It should be apparent that we can not continue to ship work out of the country, decreasing employment here, while paying people in other countries to produce what we use. The results are absolutely ruinous. We have been building a fantasy economy where people in foreign lands supposedly produce inexpensive stuff that a few big shots can make big money importing while throwing still more people here out of jobs with the consequence fewer people each month can afford to buy the stuff at any price. The attempted solution is to print money and distribute it though the welfare system to keep the people put out of work alive while the destructive process continues. That will perpetuate the fantasy economic world temporarily. The additional deceptive fantasy won’t work either and is collapsing. The welfare system is going broke to support it. Emergency payments to maintain people put out of work in a condition of semi-solvency are ballooning in number and duration to the point where that portion of the support system is threatened with bankruptcy. As more people are experiencing unemployment, there are fewer people to be relied upon to furnish a tax base to solidify the unemployment rescue system. But, as more people have been successful in procuring welfare and unemployment checks, more people have become satisfied with or dependent upon them, with the result despite its eventual destructiveness of the economic system they are afraid or disinclined to change. Moreover, too many people have become too soft or undeveloped under the prevailing welfare system to leave it. Such people now constitute a substantial committed voting block who make additional demands which politicians can stay in power by representing.

The worse conditions get under this process, the more additional people are drawn into it, making it still worse. It’s become a giant whirlpool sucking the productive economy and even the personal integrity of the nation under water. It’s become a perfect trap sprung on society.

Many are dependent upon the welfare and unemployment system out of desperation while many others are on the welfare rolls looking for a free ride. At the rate we are going, in four more years we will become a third world country with burned out major cities and a population eager to vote for a dictator with a big whip promising to put food on the table and deliver basic necessities. That’s the plan and our future. It is the direction the country is going.

There is also the balance of trade problem. With the decline in productivity and numbers of high quality business, what are foreign nations to do with American dollars? If they need goods they’ll get them from the same place we get them. We can not buy goods or services from the people who produced them then sell them back to those same people on the basis of their need or supposed incapacity to produce them .

After World War Two America was the only large nation with an intact industrial base. If people anywhere in the world wanted anything of consequence they had to get it from the United States and it helped to have dollars to get it. The dollar was the preeminent world currency and the basis on which worldwide financial institutions and methods of exchange were dependent. We could make dumb mistakes and it wouldn’t matter. Today that is no longer true and we must jawbone other nations into accepting dollars. The dollar is running out of steam. There is progressively less one can exchange for it. The next logical step is somehow no longer to accept the dollar in its position as a primary standard of world commerce, then let the United States economy, along with its dollar, slide into irrelevancy. That day is coming.

Neither are we to be in the business of an international social work agency or welfare office through giving foreign nations a sense of self worth and stability by putting them to work making stuff for us at the expense of unemployment of American workers. That is not the solution to their problem. It merely creates problems for us. Let them part with their childish self destructive superstitions, their crazy corrupt forms of government, their adherence to stupid and archaic cultural patterns, their celebration and addiction to lackadaisical ignorance, then begin building industries and trade with each other, even if they need to erase some of their national boundaries and combine populations to do it in a spirit of cooperation. If they won’t do it, let them suffer accordingly. If they become angry about needing to take serious adult responsibility, so be it. Let them live under the past conditions that are the foreseeable outcome .of what their irrational cultures produce. The United Nations has become the biggest convocation of bloodsuckers and primitive excuse-making parasites in world history. It has been given far too much credibility as being anything else for far to long.

A second basic principle is that if we are to re-begin producing here, we must have people oriented, willing, and able to engage in productive engagement in something worthwhile. What must be envisioned and implemented is a system of high grade trade and technical schools throughout the country along with necessary professional schools in areas such as medicine. High schools as well as junior high school curricula should be upgraded in terms of types of courses and depth of information within those courses. It’s time to make schools centers for education rather than mere amusement and social centers for parents to park kids until they are old enough to be let loose. Every kid in junior high school should be required to take a one semester course in hard core economics. A complete run-down of the curriculum can not be undertaken here.

And by the way, if you’re going to train a dog, it helps if you know more than the dog. Teachers must not be drop-outs or failures drifting in from other fields. They must be well trained in the areas and levels they are to teach to a point of being seriously competent and secure in the classroom, not bumbling fops. Teaching is to be a serious profession conducted by people with concentrated technical education and study two years beyond their area of expected teaching level and fewer useless fluff courses on teaching methodology that are currently used to fill time while waiting to receive a watered down degree.

Above every entrance to every school above grade school, and at the front of every classroom in those schools should be the following maxim: “What you learn here will enable you to take advantage of additional opportunities, or make opportunities for yourself, for the remainder of your life. What you don’t bother to learn here will limit you for the remainder of your life.” That serious attitude should be inculcated day to day throughout a student’s life.

What this implicitly means is that people can take their useless liberal arts degrees or MBA degrees and throw them in the trash. Our liberal arts colleges have become little but glorified high schools anyway. They are little more than acquisition of obsolete stature by people who’s main purpose is to strut and occupy space while not getting their hands dirty after graduation. They go to colleges and universities to study primarily pap, pretentious trivia, or counterculturism that is alive and flourishing at many schools. From there, they expect to be hired by companies and use those companies as welfare agencies to receive checks. Hiring such people, who are now assured that they are members of an elite intellectual class too brilliant and highly developed to degrade themselves by mere participation in ordinary day to day productive life, pollutes the productive atmosphere or morale of the companies with a subtle undercutting atmosphere of minimal performance, and an undercurrent of hostility toward the organization.

This country has run out of positions for people who want to substitute certification of academic prestige for ability and seriousness of purpose then waltz around with a title of some kind. They are dead wood. The economy of this country can no longer afford to keep doing it.

The American educational system has become a processing area for producing useless political revolutionaries dissatisfied with the condition of their life, or their position in life, and sublimating their dissatisfaction into hostile subversive political movements. They are developmentally unequipped to do anything else. That has been one of the underlying reasons for the political turbulence of the last 50 years in America.

Some demanding agitator during the week of the 2012 Republican convention announced, “We don’t need low wage jobs. We need high wage jobs.” If high wage jobs were, or are, available, there needs to be somebody qualified to take them and do them. Society or companies can, and should, pay in proportion to capacity of the individual to produce essential goods and services, not be corporate welfare agencies supporting educated fops indifferent to, or hostile to, the production of necessary, or marketable, goods and services. We presently have endless numbers of college graduates who have spent the last year or two years still looking for a job to no avail because they are not hireable. They are becoming progressively angry and bitter with something called “the system.” However, you don’t get paid for your number of years in school. If you spend years in school but don’t learn anything useful, you don’t get paid extra for it. You only get paid for the usefulness of what you’ve learned in school and your willingness and ability to apply it.

The day was, 60 years ago, when people who went to college and graduated from anything at all were considered an elite group automatically awarded a cushy position somewhere with an accompanying club and class membership. Each year colleges now graduate untold hundreds of thousands of students ready to parade a smattering of academic prestige but little else. They are superfluous.

What this country needs to seriously reestablish itself is more Henry Fords, more Hewletts and more Packards, and a damn site fewer Bushs, Kennedys, Bill Clintons, Hillary Clintons, Carters, McCains, Obamas, and Romneys. We absolutely must build an entire new generation of people capable and willing to put creative effort into rebuilding a productive economy. It will take 25 years to begin graduating them, if (God forbid) we have good leadership, and another 15 years before they ascend society and organizations with their productive ethos to make their presence felt as a productive work force.

America is now saddled with a distinct subculture of subversives dedicated to destroying the free enterprise system, then touting socialism as a necessary alternative to the ruins. We have a solid representative of that subculture now as president, in the form of Obama, who has been imposing his decisions accordingly as well as appointing fellow subversives to supporting positions. It is widely said that his decisions are the result of simple ineptitude or inexperience. They are not. They are very well calculated result of a determined strategy that has been his intention and career throughout his life. He has no capacity to do anything else. That is what he has been trained for. That is what people in this country have (unfortunately) been trained to accept. The proper sequence of events in effecting a radical system is to first destroy, sabotage, or weaken the present system in all possible ways and from all possible directions, then secondarily replace it with the intended system. That initial phase in the sequence is what we are going through now with multiple aspects of the nation, and its economy, a disaster.

Obama has appointed fellow saboteurs to high places of authority within the government to back him up in his destructive process from multiple directions. When he, and they, are finished, the American nation will grind down to a halt. An authoritarian socialistic alternative will then look good by comparison and even be perceived as a necessity.

Obama’s principle opponent for the presidency, Romney, while superficially personable, is by inclination, or general stupidity, of the same practical bent as Obama. He’s clearly not the brightest bulb in the room. His campaign has been lacking in aggressiveness, consistency, and detail. His so-called business experience at Bain Capital, while having produced several successes which he touts as typical, left a string of bankruptcies and hardships upon the companies and workers he claims to have been helping or servicing. His principle service was to himself and a few buddies. He has moved heaven and earth as justification to hide his financial records from the Bain period while attempting to substitute his irrelevant last year’s tax records under vigorous complaint and protest to make the substitution look good. He is an excellent example of the worst that capitalism has produced. As such, he has furnished the political left and Obama with exactly what they need as fuel for furthering their movement. With friends like Romney, who needs enemies? He pocketed over $300,000,000 million dollars in the process that is even known about. Now having become wealthy, the only thing remaining on the list of accomplishments to top off his narcissistic pyramid is to charm his way into acquiring the golden trophy of the American presidency.

The jackal. The jackal is not a highly intelligent animal. What the jackal lacks in intelligence and depth it compensates for in innate ability to respond instinctively to its environment immediately without recourse to elaborate consideration or conscience. That, covered with a veneer of charm and evasive verbosity, is Mitt Romney. Everything about Obama’s past is carefully hidden. What is known about Romney’s past is largely the creation of his supporters. Obama and Romney are both hollow show business personalities without substance. The people of the American nation are absolute fools and suckers for considering either of them worthy of consideration for anything. Those who are disgusted with Obama have seized upon Romney as a replacement whether he is a moral, ethical, or intellectual improvement or not.

Realistic appraisal of Islam

Listening to any member of the Bush family, or observing them, always constitutes a strenuous exercise in one’s capability to endure congenial stupidity. The ever feeble minded President George W. Bush somehow divined the brilliant conclusion that islam is a religion of peace, then decreed it for all of us to accept on the basis of his startling intellectual acuity. Bush was, as usual, wrong. Islam is an conscienceless opportunistic disease which senses weakness then attacks and conquers in the name of allah without remorse or pity. It cripples the mind and then enslaves that mind’s possessor. The alternative to non compliance is death. It has always been so since islam was invented by its founder and authoritative role model about fourteen hundred years ago. A review of history through the ages produces irrefutable evidence that this is true.

In the beginning Mohammed and his followers set out from Mecca to subdue Medina by use of the sword. Over the next few decades islam took control over much of the Arab world and then Northern Africa. From thence, islam conquered Spain. Flushed with success, an 80,000 man islamic army marched into what would later become Southern France with visions of conquering Europe. There they were met by a military genius named Charles Martel at Tours in the year 732 with an opposing army of 30,000 Franks. Martel solidly defeated the islamic forces with the result what was left of them limped back into Spain where they had established, or were establishing, a weak caliphate. Islam was finally expelled from Spain in1492 by Ferdinand and Isabella after a long period of turbulence and battles culminating in the battle of Grenada where cornered and depleted islamic forces were defeated. Martel has the distinction of having saved Europe from islamic conquest and domination the first time.

From that period the islamic thrust became focused in two areas. One area was in Eastern Europe. Islam spent centuries clawing and chewing its way northward. For hundreds of years islam had designs on conquering Europe and submitting it to islam. This time they would attempt conquest by means of a strategic end run from the East, then move Westward. The result was an attempted siege of Vienna by islamic armies in 1529 which ended in failure. In their continued determination to conquer and assimilate Europe they laid siege on Vienna a second time in 1683 with an army of 90,000 men. King Sobieski of Poland realized the threat not only to Austria, but eventually also to Poland, with the result he came to the rescue of Vienna as general of his own army and crushed the islamic forces decisively. In so doing he saved Europe a second time from islamic conquest and domination.

The islamic road on the way to Vienna was not always smooth, and isn’t to this day. Part of that road led through the conquest, or the supposed conquest, of Serbia. Several large battles were fought beginning in 1389 with the result islamics eventually wound up occupying portions of the country. The unforgiving Serbian attitude was simple, and remains simple to this day. It is essentially as follows: “You are unwelcome invaders. We want you out of here. If it takes 500 or 1,000 years, we are going to get you out. When you leave, take your children and great great great grandchildren with you. You may have won a few battles but your war for conquest and imposition of submission is not over. It has only begun.” That was the bargain that islam agreed upon by islam’s remaining in parts of Serbia and the Serbs mean to keep it. Their fight against submission to islam continues. It has never stopped for the Serbs.

But the court of half-witted busybodies at the Hague who want to burnish their feeling of self-importance has taken upon itself the position of sympathetic agreement with islam and has prosecuted Serbian leaders for being nasty guys for the hardships Serbs have visited upon islamics in fulfillment of their part of the bargain that was agreed upon. The American government in its pursuit of infinite mindlessness and disgrace has also sided with islam.

The second thrust of islamic expansion was to the direct East and far East. Islamic armies blazed a successful trail of conquest to the borders of India. At that point there were sporadic attacks and incursions into India. Then, in about 1008, islamic conquest of India began with seriousness and prolonged determination.

In the year1013 AD Mahmud advanced against Hindu Nandana where the Shahiya king, Anandapal, had established his new capital. The Hindus are reported to have fought very hard but lost. All Hindu temples were destroyed, and innocent citizens slaughtered. Utbi, secretary and chronicler of Mahmud, provides this rather ecstatic account of the plunder and the people taken prisoner:

"The Sultan returned in the rear of immense booty, and slaves were so plentiful that they became very cheap and men of respectability in their native land were degraded by becoming slaves of common shopkeepers. But this is the goodness of Allah, who bestows honor on his own religion and degrades infidelity!"

In another instance 50,000 prisoners were killed because the islamic victors had enough slaves and didn’t know what else to do with them. After another battle 100,000 prisoners were put to the sword, in yet another instance 10,000 heads of “infidel” prisoners were cut off in an hour. Astute readers, if there are any, will notice a pattern here. There should be no need to make a nearly endless list of parallel occurrences.

In the words of noted historian Will Durant: "The Islamic conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history. It is a discouraging tale, for its evident moral is that civilization is a precious good, whose delicate complex of order and freedom, culture and peace, can at any moment be overthrown by barbarians invading from without or multiplying within."

Over the next several centuries an estimated 80 million Hindus were killed in the long march to cleanse the world of supposed insult to islam and allah by not having received the word of Mohammed independently ahead of time, or not being willing to be enthusiastic converts to islam. (This slaughter was what was originally planned for Europe until Sobieski and Martel.changed some attitudes.) One way or another Hindus were considered blasphemous heathen and an insult to islam which was subject to extreme punishment. That’s 80 million, not eight million or 800 thousand. Why was it necessary to kill 80 million Hindus? Well, there were so many Hindus intent on minding their own business available and there was a lot of territory to be covered in doing the highly inspiring work of commitment to allah and his prophet.

Being killed by islamic armies was an equal opportunity enterprise. In a magnanimous gesture, Buddhists or any other people deliberately insulting islam by their disbelief in it all were eligible to receive the same terminal retribution as anybody else.

Subsequent to each battle was a spirit of triumphant celebration with endless rhetorical tributes to islam, or to allah. Thus, there are written accounts proclaiming, “This is the goodness of allah,” “Praise be to allah for the honor he bestows upon islam and muslims.” “Oh prophet, make war upon the infidels and treat them severely.” Absence of severity was never a problem and isn’t to this day.

Lest the reader labor under the popularly promulgated misconception that such attitudes and actions were relegated merely to the middle ages, consider the following: In the early nineteen hundreds the Philippines was having trouble with the Moros. (Moro is a Philippine derivative of the old formal Spanish word referring to the islamic invaders of Spain.) The Moros were supposedly wiped out with the help of the American army. Indonesia became islamic dominated fairly recently concurrent with the killing of 10,000 Christian infidels. Kashmir has suffered the deaths of about 90,000 Indians over recent decades due to islamic guerillas intent on enforcing islamic sharia law. The Philippines is coming under siege once again by islamic immigrant guerillas demanding their own separate states and law. Thailand currently is experiencing an influx of islamic guerillas who are beginning open guerilla terrorist warfare. Islamic revolution has taken over the formally secular countries of Egypt and Libya. (Libya was handed to islam with disgraceful and strong help from the American military under orders from its distinguished commander in chief, Obama.) In a tragedy Turkey has been turned back from the secular and cultural reforms of Ataturk and been returned toward islam.

Islam is on the move to achieve its original goals of world conquest. It has never ceased being on the move. It will not cease its intentions to dominate the world into that world is forced into compliance with islamic law. It cannot deviate from that course because those are the written instructions from the Koran and the example set, by islam’s founder, Mohammed, upon supposedly receiving direct word from allah as recorded in the Koran, Sunnah, and Hadith. One can not dispute the word of allah, or his prophet Mohammed, and remain Muslim. One can not dispute the word of allah, or his prophet Mohammed, in islamic dominated or strongly influenced countries then remain alive for very long.

In the past, 90,000 man islamic armies would attack in massed formation, swamping over and killing their intended victims bewildered attempts at self defense. In recent times such tactics would be counterproductive against people with a rudimentary military because 10 fighter planes with napalm bombs would wipe out half the invading army in seconds. Hence islam has had to change its tactics and strategy, but not its ultimate intent. In the last 50 years islam has become very skilled at using demographics, guerilla warfare, and guerilla politics. In the world of guerilla politics, public relations imagery, verbal manipulations, lawyers, and politicians are the new and most effective weapons and can license eventual violent conquest.

The fundamentals of guerilla politics as it occurs prior to massive takeover can be summarized as follows:

Islam, (and other hostile organizations as well) has found that one verbose lawyer equipped with glittering generalities and abstract arguments matched up with one, or a series of, mentally defective judges, or judges in sympathy with its effort, can inflict more weakening or destruction upon a society by manipulation of that society’s legal system than can be had by direct physical attack by 10,000 men –and with no loss of men. Islam, and other elements with designs for submission or conquest, have found it very advantageous to use weaknesses or deficiencies in a society’s or nation’s legal system against itself. (Hence, the attempt by contrary elements in society to stuff the court system with legal deviants is good strategy. Appoint sympathetic or corrupt judges, then use them to pry upon the strength and determination of society to create weakness and confusion that can be subsequently exploited. If you can get your subversive legal argument approved by a judge that has been already appointed, and there are quite a few, you’re in luck. Allah has conferred his goodness upon you.)

A deliberately subversive minded, mentally deficient, or just plain thoughtless and ignorant or indifferent to the consequences, politician of reputation, or seeking a reputation, who can be enlisted especially of he or she is a popular orator, is a great advantage. Hence the ever obliviously cheerful George Bush was a delightful advocate for islam. So was/is Ron Paul.

Various public relations presentations are used to present, or rather misrepresent, a false image of islam. They are very thorough. Some of these are very well prepared. A few days ago I was unfortunate enough to buy a DVD movie with a title and description intended to be somewhat unrelated to its content which turned out to be a muslim propaganda piece. The story line portrayed a devout and saintly islamic man who was a devout pacifist married to a beautiful Catholic woman. He was being unfairly persecuted by what were presented as hard, bigoted, ugly looking, agents in the FBI. In the movie the saintly muslim briefly presented a history of Mohammed as a tolerant loving pacifist. It turned out the movie was produced and directed by muslims and had muslim actors whose names I won’t even try to pronounce or to convey to readers. It was flawlessly put together fantasy and propaganda. It was full of holes in terms of logic and history that weren’t questioned in the movie, but as a stage production it was magnificent. If such a man really existed, he would be put to death for apostasy immediately in islamic countries. However the movie will soften up people over here.

I am uncertain how many public relations firms islam employs, or if they even bother to employ any. With their own spokesmen and a sympathetic media around them to broadcast their every word or make excuses for them, with the censorship of islam’s unpleasant activities that goes on, with the politicians they have working with them, and with the number of destructive leftist dupes and general malcontents in their corner, they are doing quite well and don’t need any formally employed help.

On September 13, 2012 our dazzlingly brilliant Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, called a film/video “Innocense of Muslims” that is critical of islam 'Disgusting And Reprehensible” and “a cynical attempt to offend people for their religious beliefs.” In her typical brainless but eloquent fashion she’s all over an abstract surface of the issue where absence of depth and skipping over basic analysis of realities move it into where verbal gymnastics make it look bland and clean. The thrust and focus of the issue is misrepresented as a matter of simplified religious bigotry or unreasoned fear or hostility of the strangeness of islam. But what do we do when discussion is moved from a level of avoidant abstraction and contentless theatrics characteristic of mindless advocacy and into more appropriate levels of detailed and realistic description and analysis? What if islam’s religious belief not only licenses their possessors, or those who should be more accurately termed those possessed, but commands them, to kill hundreds of millions of people in ongoing conscienceless spirit of celebration in pursuit of determined world subjugation. Maybe Hillary should bother to make an examination of such areas if she ever can be coaxed out of her self-satisfied torpor. You won’t find a hint of that reality referenced in her breezy and evasive use of language. What is represented is cleansing abstraction that confers unmerited and unrealistic blandness. It’s the new brand of censorship that’s become uncritically accepted within her mentality.

With solid manipulation and deception by people such as Hillary, who needs to pay public relations firms? She is a good one and works for free. In her infinite hostility and destructiveness she, and others like her, are the best and most sincere assets to world subjugation that islam has.

In defense of Hillary let it be said she is the innocent and helpless victim of a propagandizing subversive academic background that she sucked up with unquestioning eagerness in her drive to become a superior intellectual, superimposed upon her probable genetic incapability. That fortuitous combination miraculously transformed her into a self-impressed, loquacious, pompous, dangerous, crusading, ditz with square nerve cells that don’t connect anywhere except for the few that connect to work her mouth. Now, we, and the truth, are reduced to becoming victims of her as well as victims of the people who trained and certified her.

Hillary has been propagandized and channeled accordingly to working with guerilla thought formulations as an assumed correct basis of her mental processing. She dances easily from baseless evasive abstract verbal constructions to other baseless evasive abstract verbal constructions, none of which are related to concrete reality or truth, with the ease and joy of a little kid throwing flower petals at a wedding. It comes to the point her thinking has become so soft in that role that intrusion of complex detailed real life is a grating, unmannerly, intolerable intrusion and a repugnant vulgarity. That is what she was conditioned to think in college. Bland oblivious abstraction is the mark of the superior educated class while grubby realistic detail betrays a coarseness of spirit and intellect that is to be avoided. She, and her followers, prefer an intriguing verbal analytic structure characteristic of educated man which not only doesn’t solve gritty problems, it doesn’t even have provision for recognizing they exist. That’s the new method of problem solving in the postmodern philosophical world –and the new way of promoting and surrendering to destruction and death while exhibiting adherence to present high intellectual standards as well. Construct a system of verbal analysis evasively abstract and dishonest enough, confusing enough, and unrealistic enough so that the problem no longer exists. Then accuse people asking for detailed real content and who are cognizant of the problem’s existence, of being guilty of bad taste and a hate crime.

The poor sweet girl just can’t help herself. She pursues stupidity and obliviousness as if it were a virtue. Coming from her educational background and among the people with whom she associates, it is considered a virtue which they all share. She can now say absolutely nothing endlessly and destructively with eloquence, or profusely lie with such impressive dignity and grace that it even confers a perverted sense of superiority. She’s not accountable for the lies but instead is venerated for them. The aplomb and confidence with which they are presented is all that matters. As I observed some years ago, a person who knowingly lies to other people to exploit them is a psychopathic personality. But... when their lies become so good and are doctored with such fluency that they, themselves, begin to believe them, the person is entering into the world of self confident psychosis. Psychotics are frequently very confident. Upon grouping together and congratulating each other for the brilliance of their flawed perceptions or interpretations, they become more confident than ever.

(That, in a nutshell is why socialism/communism with its closely associated cultural Marxism expressed as multiculturalism or counterculturalism never work. The reality that people have concocted words to exclude or deny doesn’t evaporate under the verbal manipulations and slogans used to sell those systems. Reality can be purged from the mind, but not from real world functionality. That which has been cleverly denied resurfaces destructively and comes back to kick the system, and its advocates, in the behind. In their determined effort, and their effort to escape embarrassment, they characteristically steadfastly declare that any failures were the result of their system’s not having been true socialism or communism. Then they compound a new verbal system of denial and sell it again. The predictable result is a system of recyclable catastrophe occurring in various mindless areas of the world. Recycling has become importent. While recycling metals and other materials is beneficial, recycling lies or stupidity doesn’t work out so well. The real fault is not that the socialism or communism weren’t real, but that the denial and subsequent lies to replace that which was denied weren’t real. The same process is being used to sell islam with the same ultimate result. And, of course, there is a bit of sadism in the background that is to be satisfied in getting to watch people deal with the inflicted destruction, confusion, and upheaval. To a sadist, watching people struggle with the stifling effects of socialism or islam is more fun than pulling the wings off flies.

Sadism is very intriguing. It often is decidedly subconscious where it may be denied by covering it with rationalizations, but where it remains a strongly motivating entity. However, one of the advantages of a acquiring highly developed intellect is that it enables one to develop covering-up rationalizations interminably and with intimidating fluency.)

Let’s go back to examine Hillary’s thought processes in the following statements for a minute:. The thrust and focus of the issue is misrepresented as a matter of simplified religious bigotry or unreasoned fear or hostility of the strangeness of islam. You won’t find a hint of reality referenced in her breezy and evasive use of language. What is represented is cleansing abstraction that confers unmerited and unrealistic blandness. It’s the new brand of censorship

In this sequence what should be the primary center of interest in the matter is denied, in this particular case by bypassing it, or skipping over it, through immediate exclusionary focus upon fabricated irrelevant benign semantic constructions. Is so doing a faulty, subversive, or dangerous condition/argument is superficially verbally presented as something it isn’t, and often presented as its opposite. Thus, evil becomes verbally converted into good, and good becomes evil, after suitable training in verbal facility combined with deficiency of conscience or isolation from a secure sense of reality.

Denial with subsequent verbal substitution for that which is denied by use of semantics is one of the foundations of guerilla politics. It is also foundation of the political left. Descriptive semantic reversal when applied deftly enough and continuously enough gets people acclimated to or acceptant of this use of words and logic.(which is where we are arriving at now) One way or another an aggressive sadistic criminally insane movement that has licensed itself to kill or enslave/oppress hundreds of millions of people within a spirit of triumphant celebration, and continues to do so with calloused deliberation, is presented as the innocent victim of bigotry while those uneffected by attempts to mislead them are described as irrational hate-filled extremists. There is no one in the media or no strong voice in national politics to contest the semantically reversed view. If there is anyone aware of it, he is ignored or censored into nonexistence. The semantically reversed or inverted view is instead continually presented as universally accepted uncontested or uncontestable truth. A lie repeated 1,000 times becomes more believable than a truth heard but once.

The standard of proof in the present media based culture has become simple repetition of lies or distortions 1,000 times to manipulate the mentality of the general population. The population’s fear of not conforming to the group, even though it is a synthetic nonexistent group established only through the illusion of broad agreement with the lies presented, rules the day. Simultaneously, the seldom presented truth made inconspicuous by its absence and/or attacked with synthetic accusations of extremism, intensifies conformity pressures. Continuous presentation of supposedly widespread protest demonstrations present an image of unified group acceptance and support. In a media centered society, management of an illusion of unified group consensus with consequent conformity pressure determines what becomes believable as reality and conversely what truth or reality is dismissed as extremism.

A key element of guerilla politics is protest demonstrations. The louder, more aggressive, more disruptive, and outrageous the better while maintaining any limits set upon it is an act against something called freedom of expression. The distorted term is freedom of expression, not freedom of speech Freedom of expression encompasses a much greater latitude of activity, aggressiveness, and intrusion than freedom of speech.. Demand power and representation on the basis of the jarring effect of how loudly and dramatically you shout and are allowed to physically obstruct other people rather than influence them with the validity of your ideas. The more irrational the unopposed voices repeatedly heard at demonstrations, the more jarring and effective the demonstrations. . The rule is, insanity can not be refuted by the average human being, but many, if not most, people have never heard of this rule and will occupy themselves in endless attempts to violate it.

The key word is guerilla. Variations on guerilla movements are everything in modern warfare and conquest. There is incrementalism in beginning stages of islamic jihad against larger more developed areas. It begins with limited migration of superficially well behaved representatives into a targeted area. or country. During this early period soft guerilla politics comes into play. There are initial pleas for tolerant religious pluralism and multiculturism. There is also an effort to infuse and fan guilt by arguing that the society is against religious pluralism or multiculturalism. This use of words injects a false blandness into the issue. The reality of a society or country facing a slow but continuous influx of people who are toxic or representing an incompatible disruptive and hostile intent is obviated by an exclusionary focus relabeling it as a rejection of mere pluralism or multiculturalism. That’s a typical guerilla politics verbal shift. Thus further infusion and acceptance of hostile elements is converted through verbal manipulation from being a dangerous intolerability into superficially being moral crusade against bigotry and injustice while islamic invaders continue to bring in more islam in with them and accumulate more islamic demographic power. Meanwhile we in America are constantly immobilized by infused guilt through reminding us that we are all supposedly immigrants just like islamics are immigrants.

The really nice thing about infusing into a country through immigration, then mixing with the people to commit acts of terrorism and other forms of disruption is that it’s so difficult for the attacked nation to fight back without killing its own people. It isn’t as if there are hard battle lines facing each other in a field with good guys on one side and bad guys on the other side to shoot at. In guerilla warfare the attacker could be a suicide bomber in a crowd, the person standing next to you, the person driving by in an automobile or whatever. The actions of a few people acting unpredictably can accomplish a lot in terms of generating fear or confusion in a society. The uncertainty of the exact time and place of an probable attack becomes as controlling and powerful a tool of guerilla terrorist warfare as the attack itself.

To question any of this in America, and apparently anywhere in Western civilization, opens up the questioner to forceful finger-pointing accusations of being a Nazi. The public media quickly supports that view. That’s usually enough cause anybody to withdraw their valid observations or inferences and hide with their tail between their legs.

There are supposedly two islams, a bland, tolerant, and soothing one presented for non-islamic public consumption, but a small second war-waging intolerant one called radical islam which is responsible for giving nice islam a bad public image. In the real world the two islams are one and the same with radical islam awaiting enough confidence and power to come to the surface and assert itself as it has consistently done for centuries. But media and politicians here repeatedly present the false dual islam conception. The dual islamic conception wants us to believe there is a small proportion of islamics constituting radical islam while by far most islamics are tolerant souls supposedly willing to live in a non-islamic society. In truth, islam is filled with tolerant souls willing to live peacefully in a non islamic society as long as that non islamic society imposes islam.

In the city of Nashville several Muslims have got themselves into trouble due to a criminal act apparently relating to jihad. A police spokesman was quick to state the case is “not reflective of the area’s Muslim community.” What he’s saying is right out of the islamic guerilla politics playbook. In the initial phases of infusion of immigration and infusion of a guerilla movement into a society it is pretended that any violent or hostile actions by members of the nascent guerilla movement are the work of a few unsupported people. The threat and intentions of the group are thus minimized upon that society or treated as an anomaly that can, and should, be disregarded. In taking the police spokesman’s advice any actions or series of actions are dismissed in importance as being an over-generalization of the islamic community. The over-generalization concept is another one that has been conditioned to be avoided like the plague in over pseudointellectualised western civilization. In issuing such statements the officer is doing the work of guerilla politics and immobilizing legitimate observations or reactions to islam and is doing muslim’s work for them.

In the real world, the one which many of us live in, and the same one that will come back to kick us in the behind if we listen to and believe the collections of wrongful verbal concoctions, undergeneralization is every bit as poisonous and debilitating as overgeneralization. Although the intrinsic nature of islam is somehow accountable for nothing, the violent actions of islam are reflective of a substrate that lies just beneath the publicized surface of the islamic community. We are facing demographic invasion with the beginning of open guerilla warfare by a large group of people who’s most important element in their lives according to the most authoritative texts and figures in their lives is aggressive jihad and conquest while we have figures at all levels of government, through stupidity, desire to conform to political correctness, a perverted self destructive sense of morality, or adherence to subversive strategic ideological purpose, making excuses for them or otherwise immobilizing us while that group goes about its determined business. And we are importing thousands more of them. We are being set up for the kill.

The reality of islamic intent and method is not to be represented, or rather misrepresented, by some empty deceptive words somebody concocted for various purposes. The reality of islam is represented by fourteen hundred years of continued conscienceless slaughter of well over a hundred million people in an ongoing spirit of triumphant celebration which has been carried out under explicit instructions from Islam’s authoritative texts and exhortations from mosques. That speaks more loudly and truthfully than somebody’s empty concocted words. Moreover, one can not dispute the intent, methodologies, and examples written in the instructions in those texts and authorities, then remain Muslim. Disputation of any kind is considered blasphemous apostasy resulting in one’s being a designated a dangerous infidel and a deliberate insult to allah.

Islam is the practice of perpetual indignation and furor. Anything that does not conform to islam is highly offensive to islam, to allah, and is subject to increasingly angry challenges or retribution which increases with immigration and increased demographic muscle. In practice such control and demanded adherence to submission and repression have been imposed wherever Islam achieves power.

And so it is that France, Germany, Scandinavia, and Great Britain are all in the stage of being subjected to the more advanced stages of being taken over by islamic guerillas made possible by large scale invasion through islamic immigration coupled with guerilla politics. Non islamics are being subjected to increasing levels of violence or bullying, terrorism, and demands that certain areas or people be subject only to islamic sharia law, which means punitive measures are to be inflicted on non-islamics for being typical European non islamics. Countries are caving in to islamic demands or actions and don’t know what to do about it because they are losing the strategic war of twisted words that is a tool of subversive guerilla politics. They are terrified and immobilized by demands for tolerance, and by chronic accusations of ethnic cleansing or prejudice, or hostility toward multiculturism, or accusations of racism, or extremism, or Nazism, lack of inclusiveness, or all the other verbal tools in the guerilla politics toolbox. Anything islamics do tends to be forgivable or understandable while anything European non islamics do is subject to immediate islamic indignation and rage which has been conditioned by the absurd guilt in the general population applied through guerilla politics to be a signal either to wave the white flag of surrender or to effect a compromise. Islamic rage and indignation are always awaiting as a play in their stock theatrical production and are ready to be released as jarring public demonstrations or loud complaints and accusations at the snap of a finger. In fourteen hundred years islam has shown no interest in compromising to anything but absolute imposition of islamic law. Compromise achieved in any area is only one in a series of steps toward achieving that imposition. Europe is being conquered by islamic guerilla movements while being immobilized by unexamined addiction to idealistic generalities which islam and its allies continue to refine and feed it. Europe is being hit on two fronts. Islam is being aided by the psychotic destructive political left that is also in the same game of comprehensive cultural attack to produce weakness, eventual collapse, and submission. Thus, the political left’s strategic purpose of producing, then utilizing, weakness coincides with islam’s and the left is naturally allied with islam. As a result the distorted and subversive language structure and concepts of the left are eagerly taken up by islam. The two movements echo each other as one.

On a high level of abstraction and generality, there is little difference between the two movements beyond obsessional practice of religious ritual. Each has intent to establish a strong authoritarian state over a forcefully programmed/propagandized and completely submissive population. In considering the total situation beneath that level, there is concern over what the two movements would eventually do with each other. Islam is not going to give an inch at anything but having countries living under the dictates of sharia law. Will the left be prepared to accept that degree of religiosity? My suspicion is that the left is driven by such a substrate of hatred and hostility that it might find the opportunities for imposition of sadism inherent in islam are attractive and make its imposition acceptable. In addition, leftists seem to crave a sense of order and purpose in their lives that islam provides.

One way or another, Europe is under siege by islam and is about to be conquered if it doesn’t wake up. The age-old dream of European conquest that islam was forced to defer in 732 and 1683 is about to become a reality, not through the victorious march of massed armies but through immigration and guerilla politics coupled with a final dose of guerilla warfare upon a psychologically beaten society that is so brainless and so preoccupied and cowed by empty words and guilt that it can no longer maintain seriousness about wanting to survive. Anders Breivik was essentially correct in his perception of the problem and attacking the training camp for the next generation of leaders in leftist destructive guerilla politics among the people to be weakened and conquered. Breivik is said to have “sacrificed his life” to free Europe from the “clutches of Islam, multiculturalism, and political correctness.” He killed some people who were attending what constituted a paramilitary training camp with 25 year olds who were more thoroughly trained in natural leadership positions, but were all falsely presented as early teenagers. What existed was a preparatory paramilitary operation with rank according to age, training, and leadership ability designed to produce the next generation of elite leftist intellectuals and cultural advocates of over-tolerant destructive multiculturism and political correctness instrumental to building a new socialist society from the ruins. However, while there was hysterical and shrill criticism of Breivik by those advocates of intellectual tolerance, in Scandinavia and also America, there was no inclination by those same indignant intellectuals to criticize the death or ruination their version of tolerance was producing in its encouragement of muslim immigration. Parts of Scandinavia, and indeed Europe, are becoming infected with no-entry zones marked by mosques lest people go in and get mauled by angry self-righteous muslims. People are being assassinated for insult tp islam or allah. By his actions against a camp that was the left wing and countercultural equivalent of a Hitler Youth elite training facility, Breivik may have intended to begin a movement representing or producing a modern Martel or Sobieske that would save Europe from invasion a third time.

What about the United States? The United States is behind Europe in its conquest by islam but struggling mightily to catch up. We’re at the stage where sporadic guerilla violence is popping up such as the islamic United States army psychiatrist who killed a number of his army cohorts, where there is a push to have sharia law for muslims that negates American law, and there is the occasional self-licensed rape of American women who it is argued deserve it by not conforming to islamic dress codes. The establishment of an islamic mosque near the site of 9/11 death and destruction is an exquisite exercise in deliberately provocatively defiant guerilla politics designed to produce repressed outrage. It’s a way of rubbing people’s face in what happened by people sympathetic to what happened. The act of instilling psychological repression is accidentally instrumental, or knowingly, operant to producing a depressed or numbed state to break the psychological back, and resistance, of a population. Protest demonstrations act similarly.

The basic paradigm is to produce a condition which reasonably creates an anger or rage response while forbidding or otherwise suppressing direct expression or acting out of those reactions or emotions. If it is done often enough, or well enough, an individual or group under which it is inflicted learns to hold legitimate reactions within themselves. Some theorists call it rage stuffing. People stuff their anger back inside themselves. Anger held in long enough becomes depression. It’s called turning anger against the self. It would be absurd to ask readers to believe the practitioners, many of whom are ignorant savages, are acting out in accordance with a precisely defined scientific formulation. They aren’t. All they know is that from experience, it works and gets them what they want in terms of a progressively beaten down submissive population. They may not be able to articulate how it works or why it works. They may not care how it works. All they are concerned with is the fact that experience has shown that it produces the desired effect. It is an effect that is also welcomed by sadistic left wing politicians and organizers.

Now, present liberal society has attempted to impose a degree of socialization or morality which augments the above type of self-destructive paradigm. It is more concerned about expressions of anger than what a person or group predictably did to cause it. In an atmosphere of unconditional toleration there is a national crusade against anger or hatred including reasonable anger. Our system of law is increasingly reluctant to recognize justified anger. We now labor under a new concept of law called hate crimes. Liberal churches admonish members to hate the sin, but love the sinner. Presumably if someone comes to slit you or your family’s throat for profit, amusement, or as a commandment of their religion, your only allowable reaction should be to suck your thumb while trying to look at the person doing it with love and understanding to be in compliance with church sermons. The nice thing about repression of anger and hate crimes is that only certain groups of people to which suppression or repression applies. Meanwhile, irrational anger and outrage among selected designated groups is deemed understandable or permissible and we are constantly admonished understand their reasons for it. Thus, there is no conceptual balance in application of the category. One or certain groups are licensed or relieved of accountability while the others are compelled to swallow constant criticism and repression. It’s licensed psychological tyranny. One group is assigned the forced inferior and adaptive role of being a psychological and physical target of convenience while the other is licensed to employ behavior requiring repressive adaptation to the first group at will. The United States is evolving into the equivalent of a Nazi concentration camp with the white European middle class forced into becoming compliant persecuted inmates. America is in various stages of this now with continuous deliberate provocation or bullying and deliberately repressed appropriate reactions to such provocation from which there is no appeal.

People assume the only type of oppression is physical oppression. There are types of psychological oppression that are just as real and controlling as physical oppression. The interesting aspect of psychological oppression and repression is that people who have surrendered to it by becoming psychologically repressed are then frightened, angry, or no longer able to understand the legitimate reactions of those people who are not repressed. As a consequence, the successfully oppressed subsequently tend to assume the role of oppressors. The employment of guerilla politics is highly effective.

But a new islamic force is on the horizon. Islam is not suicidal in the sense of asserting individual suicide for no purpose. It encourages productive individual or group suicide when the purpose is to successfully make a statement, make an impact, have an effect, and advance the position of islam and islamic jihad. One of the reasons islamic armies retreated in the face of Charles Martel is that islamic armies were getting badly beaten while Martel’s troops were suffering negligible casualties. Continued battle would have served naught except, perhaps, to demonstrate islamic weakness. On the other hand a suicide bomber who straps explosives to himself and kills 15 or 20 people, or someone who detonates a car bomb that successfully kills 50 or 100 non islamic infidels demonstrates a superior and heroic determination on the part of islam and an inability or helplessness of non islamics to protect themselves or do anything effectual. It’s a good kill ratio. The destruction of the New York World Trade Center on 9/11 killing 3,000 people by islamic pilots shouting Allah Akbar was looked upon as an enormous coup within this frame of reference. If the jihadists had had access to a nuclear weapon instead of only airplanes, they would have triumphantly used it. Read that last sentence three more times. Iranian leader Ahmadinejad has recently made loud public exhortive statements declaring there is nothing greater than giving one’s life in furtherance of islamic jihad and the greatness of islam was well received within islamic nations but ignored in America. by critically positioned supportive intellectuals eager to demonstrate their mental prowess and obstreperous creativity.

Enter stage left, Iran on the verge of possession of atom bombs and the production of 6,000 mile range intercontinental ballistic missiles. What a potential statement by islam and for islam! Whoopee! Those atom bombs and missiles are not for intended internal use or policing in Iran. Without destructive oriented intellect and ability to manipulate they would be nothing. But atom bombs confer the punitive power of a three or four hundred thousand man army at the push of a button. This is certainly an improvement over suicide bombers killing a mere 100 or even 3,000 people at a time. The opportunities made possible are enough to produce a state of orgasm among the forces wishing to demonstrate the power of islam and the ability to impose punishment for their never-ending perception of insults to allah. Lunatic Ahmadinejad will soon have nuclear weapons that he can start to distribute surreptitiously among the dedicated. Does anybody see a possible problem developing here?

If, or when, Israel gets hit with nuclear weapons, America will be next in line to get hit, or will be hit concurrently. If we are going to survive, it will be because Israel will inadvertently protect America in the process of protecting itself. Otherwise it becomes doubtful whether our own incompetent and subversive government will do anything. Israel may be our only, or best, hope.

In the great debate for the presidency of the United States that was largely an insult to people’s intelligence, there was quarreling over the attack upon the U. S. consulate in Libya and petty dispute berween Obama and Romney as to how it happened. Its occurrence was the foreseeable consequence of having sent the United States Air Force in much earlier to insure victory of an islamic revolution which was puny and never would have had a chance without our massive military support, followed by the subsequent installation of a lunatic islamic government in Libya is what happened. The U. S. overturned a stable secular government so that it could be replaced with an angry islamic madhouse. All else predictably followed from that. That’s what happened. But our two glassy-eyed imbeciles debating the issue avoided making the obvious connection. Obama was responsible for the original treasonous determining debacle and Romney was too hopelessly detached from this world to be aware of it. That’s how much we can expect from our own present, or future, government.

That’s also how much we can expect from our own general population who support one or the other of these two goofs for president. They aren’t presidential material. They are both kindergarten material.

In the political guerilla and paranoid dialogue maintained by islam, and echoed exclusively in the liberal/leftist media, there is complaint that poor sad islam is always somehow mistrusted and persecuted. Islamophobia, it’s called. The basic challenge and rebuttal to this assertion is to ask the question as to why islam is always marching or immigrating into somebody else’s country thousands of miles away with obstinate determined intent to force its will and its value system upon people established and living there, to merit such persecution, hostility and mistrust. If islam would leave other people alone to live their lives as they wish, it would have a lot fewer problems and be subject to a lot fewer accusations. It seems to have a penchant for licencing itself to take over and run other people’s lives and lands. Further, it doesn’t have anything to offer anybody in return except resentment, raving hatred expressed at the drop of a hat or on cue, chronic discontent, mental illness, repressive and stifling conformity, coercion, a warped cruel and harshly or sadistically administered system of authoritarian injustice, criminal mistreatment and control of women, constant repetition of ridiculous social and religious ritual, plus blaming other people or nations for islam’s inherent problems and punishing them accordingly. Put it all together and it’s recipe for group inculcated and enforced psychosis. Is it any mystery why intelligent people who are not susceptible to being infected with islamic disease consider muslims and islam crazy and bombs ready to go off? They are crazy –and dangerous.

Islam is a highly developed self centered paranoid system that evidences an absence of temporal contiguity. It is extremely self righteous. Under this condition what people do to defend themselves justifies initially attacking them in the first place. Islam has constructed and emplaced a hypothetical intermediary in its conceptual thought processes to deny personal accountability. Islam is the agent of allah. If it decides to attack and conquer somebody it’s doing so because that’s what allah supposedly wants. Allah alone is responsible. In the exquisitely paranoid islamic mind, all war initiated upon others is defensive because non-compliance to islam is viewed as an intolerable offense to allah that one must punish and eradicate by any means. All non islamic societies or cultures are therefore enemies of islam.

Islam is a group encouraged/managed and enforced psychotic state that is half playacting and constant posturing before each other, and half channeling of awaiting repressed rage from various sources. When the combination of the two becomes highly acquired conditioning to the point of group desired and expected blind state push-button explosiveness, one is a good true muslim. Islamics systematically condition each other like Pavlov’s dogs in the laboratory with instruction by the prophet.

In becoming automatons to Mohammed, the universal prophet who heard voices in his head, blindly following him relieves them of all other responsibility, examination, and introspection. The lesson in this is clear. If you can follow someone who is psychotic, you have found an easy path to psychosis without going through the trouble of developing it yourself.

Immigration

There are three broad classes of immigration: 1) What was previously known as legal immigration. 2)What is recently or currently approved as legal immigration. 3) Illegal immigration such as that which has become in fact an ongoing unhindered, if not encouraged, transmigration of a large foreign army of occupation over our Southern border.

What was previously legal immigration should not be objectionable. It was limited in number to that which would be assimilated without generating stress between immigrants and the established indigenous population. Additionally, immigrants were chosen from a cultural and ethical background which not only did not openly conflict with established American values, but often were an appreciative and happy extension or expansion of them. The only subsequent difficulty was acquiring the ability to speak English, which was usually done with eagerness after which they fit right in. Thus, previous immigrants often viewed the values and opportunities of their new country with enthusiasm rather than grudging protest or disrespect. At the very least there was protection against an influx of large numbers of people coming in as adversarial or contentious elements to American culture, or established economic and legal system in the form of limitation of total number of immigrants per year. When I was in grade school we were told it was 140,000 per year.

Let’s begin with a review of some deviations from reality that are used to sell or weaken our resistance to the invasion occurring over our Southern border.

First there is the concept of Aztlan that is an apparent contraction of words meaning Aztec Land. The population of Mexico is largely concentrated in a lowland basin of tropical water run-off in the Southern one third of Mexico. Within that basin the Aztecs were a small tribe living in an area perhaps approximating 25 miles square. In the year 1519 Spanish explorer Cortez arrived and thought he detected the scent of gold in the area due to the Aztecs wearing a few gold trinkets, whereupon he killed or tortured Aztecs in an effort to find the source. His efforts were embellished and entered into the history books as a major victory in his intrepid venture to conquer Mexico. Without that effort and embellishment, the Aztecs would never be known to history. They were an unimportant small tribe who didn’t amount to a hill of beans. Now, with a wave of second embellishment by Mexican agitators, Aztlan has became a romanticized myth of a mighty nation with lands extending as far as God can see. It is a lie made acceptable by constant repetition without presentation of realism or dispute. It is useful in that it presents the fake history of land supposedly taken from Mexico. It is useful in that the myth furnishes the basis of justification for romanticized motivation supporting a popular crusade to take the land back. The myth is well received as it contributes a sense of pride in a nation which has little other reason for pride.

To the North of the tropical water basin is a high desert mountain range with peaks up to 13,000 feet which even to this day is largely uninhabited. Cortez advanced his army Northward to the base of the mountain range but was unable to negotiate a path into the formidable mountains. Had he found a way into the mountains, it would have been a death trap because there weren’t enough people living there to steal food and water from to maintain his expedition.

Cortez was much too bold a man to let himself be limited by mere physical realities. Imagination, properly applied, could solve any problem. Accordingly, he claimed all land in Mexico and to the unlimited North for the King of Spain, site unseen. How far did the claims extend? Nobody knew because there was no knowledge of the claimed area and no maps. The claims would extend to the limits of determination and ability to hold on to them and on little basis except one man’s imagination and arrogance. On old maps, Mexico and regions vaguely to the North are labeled New Spain.

In about 1819 Mexico disputed and overthrew Spanish rule, which wasn’t really too hard because Spain was into its decendency and lacked the capability, or serious interest, in being saddled with Mexico and its problems for what little good Spain was deriving from it. But, while Mexico threw off Spain’s authority over Mexico based upon Cortez’s original claims, it was reluctant to part with the claims Cortez had made upon the distant North. This was bound to cause trouble because Anglos, who were unconcerned with hypothetical Mexican rule, would shortly begin moving into what were these then unsettled areas from the Eastern U. S. in mass, with superior technology, guns, a spirit of oblivious determined independence, and nasty dispositions. Ties to, or concern with, Mexico, would eventually become a demographic irrelevancy and a resulting growing irritation point to Mexicans and Anglos alike. Mexicans were not suited, or interested in, occupying or developing the Cortez claim. During the period there was an undeveloped school system in Mexico with no radios or TV and very few people even knew of it. During the last Mexican area governorship in Monterrey, California, the town had a population of only 900 people and most of those were Anglos.

Northern Mexico above the Southern water basin has always been largely unpopulated. Even today there are entire areas the size of Rhode Island that are unpopulated, for good reason, with the exception of a few gas stations to service the roads that pass through. These barren areas prohibited Mexican movement Northward. Not only that, the area above the Rio Grand river was rugged and the home of American Indian tribes who enjoyed capturing then torturing, or killing occasional Mexicans for amusement. Later, the migration of Anglos into the claimed areas pacified and developed the areas to make them livable and attractive. With improved methods of transportation in Mexico, Mexican cities began to develop just South of the Rio Grand river to benefit from the diffusion of dollars across the border. A few Mexicans, known as wetbacks, would swim across the river to take up residence. Ironically, it was early Anglo migration and development of previously unlivable areas that made Mexican immigration into what is now the United States possible.

Things continued in that fashion until the last forty or forty-five years. Since then illegal immigration across our Southern border has developed into something approaching a defiant holy crusade –in great part openly encouraged by our own government.

We have had Aztlan propaganda and then another romanticized concept has been introduced, “reconquista.” Reconquista is an adaptation of the word originally used to express Spain’s determination to take back its lands conquered and occupied by islamic invaders. It is now freely applied by propagandists supporting a Mexican invasion of the United States as justification to invade and seize control of seven or more states. It has become another hysterically motivating rallying cry which has become well received through repetition and through deficiency in honestly disputing it.

Before there can be a reconquista there must first be a conquista. Before there can be a conquista there must be solid evidence of a significant number of people living in an area and being conquered. They never existed for Mexicans. What we have instead is another popularized myth based upon a swaggering blowhard’s decrees during a fantasy nearly 500 years ago, and assumption that being a conquistador entitled him to assign control of land he had never seen or wasn’t even certain existed. Furthermore, the people laying claim to having been attacked were never the primary occupants of said land. What existed was one man’s empty claim upon land that became settled and developed at a later time by other people. This makes the claims of reconquista less than believable.

There never was an Aztlan and there is no basis for a reconquista. There is also has been no serious attempt to reject the concepts by recent occupants of the United States federal government. What there has been is an unspoken attempt to promote the feeling that Mexico and Mexicans are somehow owed special privileges as compensation for their unjustifiably stolen loss.

Estimates of the number of what are called illegal immigrants coming into the United States through its Southern border vary considerably depending upon whether one agrees with what has become a large scale invasion or disagrees with it. Those who agree with it put the number at 12,000,000 over the past 10 years to minimize its importance or threat. For at least six or seven years that quoted number has always remained 12,000,000 regardless of how many additional people were seen coming over. On the other hand those who are in disagreement with it place the number at about 35,000,000 to 40,000,000 with an annual rate of about 3,000,000 additionally from cross-border migration added per year. It becomes obvious that somebody had to be lying. One could stand by the border and watch masses of organized groups at regimental levels entering illegally day after day. There’s no way this could be happening without that 12,000,000 number getting larger. It never increases. Additionally, after entering the country illegals would fan out over the country. Entire areas became illegal centers that only be accounted for with massive increases in numbers. Who was lying became apparent but the people lying were never called on it or held accountable for it–and still aren’t. That includes the two present presidential candidates from the two major political parties. We are continuing to be deliberately conned.

Raw numbers weren’t the only thing being lied about. Little serious attempt has been made to obstruct
continued migration across our border in unlimited quantities at willful convenience. Is there a fence or barrier? Just enough fence was installed at insignificant locations to provide photo ops to convince the gullible that something was being done and to allow George Bush to ride by in a glorified dune buggy with a stupid grin waving hello to waiting government photographers. There isn’t a serious fence. There never was a serious fence. There won’t be a serious fence. There will be plenty of excuses and boondoggles, but there won’t be a serious fence that works under our presently elected officials, or those in the two major parties seeking office.

It is argued that illegals must be allowed in to do work Americans can’t, or won’t, do, therefore we need massive immigration. The question should be asked who did that work during the 200 years of increasing prosperity before Mexicans licensed themselves to begin pouring in regimental numbers?

Then there is the matter of amnesty or deportation for illegals. The federal government has worked to rubber stamp amnesty while either impeding deportation or making it impossible though pushing psychotic levels of rationalization through manufactured gaps or pockets of willing corruption stategically positioned in our supposed legal system. It is argued that states have no right to enforce immigration or deportation laws because such laws are somehow only the exclusive province of the federal government. On the other hand federal enforcement is performed with great reluctance, not seriously, or is spotty at best. Combine the two conditions and the result is less than even marginal enforcement–which is the intended consequence. Once they are 20 miles over the border, immigrants are home free because to ask them for any kind of identification under any circumstances is called racial profiling and clear evidence of discrimination. The result is, as much as possible, a push not to let willing people do anything by an administration unwilling to do anything serious. With increasing frequency dangerous elements from hostile Arab countries are also taking advantage of the porosity of our Southern borders for their own purposes. Anyone who has been following the immigration issue can make up a rap sheet of titles two feet long on rationalizations and interference generated to support an invasion. Step by step, any control over immigration through our Southern border has been progressively and intentionally dismantled.

Here is a partial addition to the rap sheet extracted from a report that appeared on the internet:

“Obama's refusal to deport illegal aliens unconstitutional, say law professors:”

“ Two law professors, including one who served in the Bush Justice Department, have published a paper charging that President Obama violated the Constitution with his directive to law enforcement not to deport illegal aliens.”

“ In the paper entitled, “The Obama Administration, the Dream Act and the Take Care Clause,” authors Robert Delahunty of the University of St. Thomas [Minnesota] and John Yoo, a law professor at University of California at Berkeley and former U.S. deputy assistant attorney general, blast Obama's moratorium on deporting certain illegal immigrants. The professors dismissed the idea that the decision on whether to deport illegal immigrants who are arrested for minor infractions is a matter of prosecutorial discretion.”

“It’s the duties of the president. He must always uphold the law.”

“ - John Yoo, Berkeley law professor and former State Department attorney”

“If there’s one case and it’s left to the prosecutor well that’s fine, but what Obama did was take a million cases and leave it up to prosecutorial discretion, “John Yoo said to FoxNews.com. “The only reason it’s under [Department of Homeland Security Secretary] Janet Napolitano’s discretion is because Obama had made his decision. If she’s doing it under her own, she would have to be fired.”

“ An abstract for the paper debunks the claim that the president has the Constitutional right to not enforce civil laws crafted and passed by Congress.”

“It’s the duty of the president. He must always uphold the law,” Yoo said, adding that the only exceptions in doing so are if laws are unconstitutional or if prosecuting them can be reasonably deemed not viable.”

“ Officials from the White House declined to comment on the paper.”.

“The authority of the Secretary of Homeland Security to exercise prosecutorial discretion, including by granting deferred action, has long been established and has been recognized by the Supreme Court," said DHS spokesman Peter Boogaard. "This authority was reaffirmed by the Supreme Court just this year [Arizona v. United States (2012)].”

“That said, DHS’s deferred action for childhood arrivals process is only a temporary measure that does not provide a path to citizenship; Congress must still act to provide a permanent solution to fix the broken immigration system. Until Congress acts, DHS is dedicated to implementing smart, effective reforms to the immigration system that allow it to focus its resources on common sense enforcement priorities, including criminals and other public safety threats."

“ In June, President Obama announced that the deporting of young, undocumented immigrants who match criteria from already-proposed DREAM Act legalization would end under his administration’s watch. The effect was to put in place most of the measures in the act, but by administrative order, not through the legislative process. In August, a group of federal agents filed a lawsuit against DHS secretary Janet Napolitano, claiming that the new directive forces them to break the law.”

“ Under the DREAM Act, illegal aliens who are eligible beneficiaries would not have faced deportation as long as they meet the following criteria: Proof of having arrived in the United States before age 16. Proof of residence in the United States for at least five consecutive years since their arrival date. Register with the Selective Service if they are male. Be between the ages of 12 and 35 at the time that the bill was enacted. Obtained a high school diploma or GED, or admitted to an institution of higher education. Be of good moral character.”

“ Opponents of the DREAM Act, which still has not been passed in Congress, say that it - as well as Obama's order, encourages illegal immigration while adding economic and social burdens to the United States.”

“ Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who was a key backer of the DREAM Act, blasted the president's preemption in June, when DHS announced policies on immigration enforcement.”.

“There is broad support for the idea that we should figure out a way to help kids who are undocumented through no fault of their own, but there is also broad consensus that it should be done in a way that does not encourage illegal immigration in the future. This is a difficult balance to strike, one that this new policy, imposed by executive order, will make harder to achieve in the long run.”

“…by once again ignoring the Constitution and going around Congress, this short term policy will make it harder to find a balanced and responsible long term one.”

End Extract.

And the beat goes on to encourage an invasion across our Southern border by systematically devising and employing all manner of excuses and illegalities with almost everybody in league with it, except the American people, and with those people in the states most effected being brought under legal suit to shut them up.

Recent immigration trends.

What is recently approved legal immigration purposely draws increasing proportions of people from countries with cultures and systems incompatible with advanced civilizations and particularly American civilization or life. Many such people retain an practice a hostility and disengagement from an what they consider an alien American culture which makes what is for them unreasonable and uncomfortable demands in terms of the culture from whence they came. That’s as kind as I can be. On a practical strategic level it’s infusing a hostile and destructive element of subversives into our societal structure. For practical purposes our legal immigration system is now being misused by well positioned elements in America with destructive intent to import subversives and soldiers to weaken and man their systematic internal war against America.

Today we are importing primitives who find conflict with commitment to their prior cultural base or genetic incompatibility/incapacity. The best of them come here for the potential goodies provided by America while remaining hostile to the discipline and cultural structure necessary to provide them. Others are apparently indisposed by genetic predisposition to be incapable of comfortable adjustment to a civilized culture. Still others enter to carry on a role as internal guerilla warriors against a country with which they have various forms of opposition.

It modern jargon this is called diversity. Diversity is a semantic reversal or inversion in an euphemistic attempt to convert contentiousness, hostility, subversion, or destructiveness into an ersatz virtue which, on a superficial or abstract level is made to sound like it’s an unforgivable moral or intellectual offense and an act of crudeness to reject it. We covered the bulk of this concept earlier in this article.

Although it is biblically detestable, evolution is taught as science in biology/zoology classes as fact. It is a universally assumed and applied principle in animal agriculture. It is successfully employed as the basis of certain sports such as horse racing where the best and fastest are bred to the best and fastest to produce the fastest. Stallions stand at stud for thousands of dollars to reproduce their genetically influenced or determined characteristics in lines of horses. For some absurd reason it is almost uniformly prohibited to apply observations based upon the same principles to human beings.

To produce evolution a stressor upon organisms is needed, combined with an array of genetic variation within the group. From there, survival of the fittest within that array of genetic variation occurs to begin evolution. Culture becomes adapted to physical environment. A physical environment which doesn’t demand much, doesn’t select much beyond physical characteristics.

The culture, itself, becomes a stressor. The culture selects out people most suitable to thrive admirably in its physical environment. (A corrupt or degenerate culture also selects out people genetically most suitable for their innate capacity to live in it.) Those who deviate from it in terms of behavioral patterns are less likely to fit in, survive, or procreate. They are persona non grata. (In islam the process of evolution is accelerated because any people with even minor disagreement with it have their heads chopped off in short order, leaving a genetic pool predisposed to islamic compliance)

In recent years a preponderance of primitives have been encouraged to immigrate into this country from primitive nations and cultures. They come in with minds that are genetically evolved by thousands of years in an environment and culture consisting of doing little more than simple repetitive tasks, and breeding. Becoming fleet of foot and strong of arm would satisfy accommodation to major stressors in their physical and social environment. A condition of thoughtlessness combined with physical prowess and a component of aggression was a satisfactory evolutionary end product. Practically speaking, the result is people who are genetically undeveloped, mentally, through the evolutionary process. They have a high activity level which many people consider an indication of intelligence. But the problem is that the activity is typically based upon emotion with little cognitive influence or control.

What one obtains through immigration from warped or genetically undeveloped cultures is genetic transplantation of the mental characteristics of that culture and resultant cultural deterioration. What you don’t get is consideration of temporal continuity or depth of intellect beyond immediate simple reactions.

Their attempts to adapt to civilized culture are rather unsuccessful attempts to overcome genetic predispositions honed over millennia that resurface as a distorted parody. At best their adaptation and integration is superficial with contamination by genetic components that often break though a bizarre imitation of civilized acquisition.

Education is often a difficult task of butting knowledge up against genetically determined sentient incapacity, or finding that which has been learned is being misapplied in according to bizarre cultural requirements. To put it bluntly, attempts to seriously educate them puts them in water above their heads.

They often congeal into large defensive areas that also create a localized social milieu. This has occurred in Detroit as well as in other major areas of the country. The following is from an internet published announcement:

“The men and women of the Detroit Police Department believe the city is too dangerous to enter, and they want citizens to know it.”

“Detroit Police Officer Association (DOA) Attorney Donate Iorio said officers are holding the “Enter At Your Own Risk” rally at 3:30 p.m. Saturday in front of Comerica Park”

End extract.

So there you have it. An entire major police department has declared itself unable to deal with the swill.

Immigration and amnesty have been converted into another successful broad-based weapon used to attack and destroy the system of American values and culture. There is no other sensible reason to be importing Muslim immigrants into this country. Nonsensical reasons that are grammatically correct can be concocted and presented as defiant answers to questions regarding the issue, but grammatical correctness is no substitute for sensibility. And the destructive consequences are consistent with a pattern of destructive decisions and implementations in a multitude of other areas.

There is of late a tendency to receive an answer to a reasonable question and receive an answer that in nothing but fluent and grammatically correct psychobabble. People have become so accustomed to hearing it that it has become acceptable. It is not an answer. It is a purposeful evasion and rationalization. If we are going to survive as a nation, people must cease accepting statements on the level of pure fluency and correctness of grammar and begin examining answers in terms of content and relationship to collateral events --if their mentalities are even capable of doing so.

The American people are being subjected to a pattern of verbally justified defiant sadism in all things. They are exhibiting a dangerous psychology of being accustomed to accepting it and to embracing their own economic and social destruction. A full exposition of this could be made a fifth category in the list of issues. It will not be done here because of disinclination or incapability of people to understand it. Additionally, there is not enough time on my calendar to pursue it.

Politicians are scared to death. At present rates of immigration and assimilation of illegals into citizenship they will soon control representation, and the electoral vote, of five or more of the of the most populous states. Decedents of previous immigrants will vote in sympathy with them. Together, they will constitute a major voting block with capacity to drain the resources of the country to support their alien cultural life style. Politicians know it and are disregarding the needs and future of Anglos to concentrate nearly exclusively upon cultivating Mexican Hispanics.

The proliferation and increasing dominance of irrational, obliviously self-serving and transient amusement with disregard for long term consequences

The American Constitution was written by disciplined men for a people that were governed by self discipline. On the whole it is a nearly perfect document although certain aspects of it are now obsolete. It was written in the days before anyone could conceive of somebody having the ability to push a button to vaporize entire major American cities with nuclear missiles 20 minutes later. But on the whole it is a very good document crafted by thoughtful and disciplined men as a general prescription for the rights of others of similar mind and integrity in living day to day life. The American Constitution was written by disciplined men for a people that were governed largely by self discipline and personal integrity.

For the last five decades this nation has been dominated by a monologue focusing nearly exclusively on rights and freedoms with negligible concern about responsibility to yourself, to people immediately around you or dependent upon you, or to society as a whole. References to responsibility, prudence, or foresight have been steadily displaced from conceptual usage in commonly used language. If you will, it can be looked upon as an adaptation of Playboy/Playgirl philosophy and immaturity to other aspects of life. But no constitution or system of laws, no matter how perfect, will work as a guide to govern rabid chimpanzees or hyenas, or will work when administered by such. There has been a steady degradation of law to accommodate it concurrent with indifference to the original spirit and functionality of the constitution. Freedom must be applied wisely by sentient human beings who are concerned with basic sane standards of prudence and concern about a future beyond an immediate impulse centered immediate present. If it is not done, the ultimate consequence becomes severe social oppression and licensed psychopathology.

When I say oppression, people assume I mean oppression by an authoritarian government. That is but one kind of oppression. On a molecular level, what people do to each other in the absence of morality, ethics, integrity, sentient emotional and psychological honesty, coupled with an indifference to consideration of foreseeability can produce conditions just as oppressive and intolerable as those occurring as the result of government excesses. This is one of the dangers inherent in espousing freedom exclusive of other considerations. That is the oppressive direction America has been going for decades.

As of 2011 we are faced with a national 42% out of wedlock birth rate that is draining the financial resources of the country as well as producing generations of unparented undisciplined dolts and savages. We’re saddled with the problem of millions of children who have not felt the presence of a serious adult influence in their lives for four generations. They are turned over to an educational system as uncontrollable wild animals parented by psychotic role models on TV, who then outnumber overwhelmed teachers by a ratio of 25 or 30 to one. From this a miraculous outcome is expected. Acquaintance with functional adulthood and its expectations is becoming increasingly rare.

Out of wedlock children may work, economically, for self-impressed movie stars getting paid $1,000,000 for acting in a movie and intent on proudly parading an attention-getting dramatic statement of their capacity for carefree glamorous defiance. But, for ordinary women, government support for the mothers and children is both astronomical and hopeless. Politicians won’t touch the issue lest they alienate an enormous proportion of voters. They prefer to describe the money it costs to subsidize it as an investment in the future of America. In so doing they legitimize the entire scene. It is destroying the country.

That is only a portion of the costs. Feral children grow into feral teenagers and eventually into feral adults who are incapable of, or disinterested in, conducting their lives with any prudence or sanity. They are impulse ridden immediate oriented. This makes them prime candidates for a life in violent criminality. But while they can’t organize their lives with decency, they still cling to a child’s vision of what they should be awarded and achieving. The absence of this achievement is looked at as having been denied it by the “system” and sets them up to be eternally disgruntled malcontents – to be gathered up and exploited by community organizers into revolutionaries. We don’t call them revolutionaries at this point. The Politically Correct vernacular refers to them as social activists.

The prominence of feral adults is subtractive from the number of people in the country willing or able to do anything. Simultaneously, they increase demands upon the country to take care of them.

Additionally, many married parents are too preoccupied with personal lives and amusements to give sustained guidance to their kids. This contributes further to an entire culture characterized by developmental insufficiency and immaturity.

In summation, an steadily increasing proportion of the country has been chasing the flow of soft pornography attractively presented in movies, TV, and magazines without consequences. The real world consequences are eating us alive. Welfare offices are flooded with single mothers who have engaged without prudence, caution or commitment then have been deserted by perpetual boys who don’t want any part of them or the kids after they get them pregnant. Welcome to Hollywood!

The University System Subculture

The university system, particularly in the liberal arts, has become a playground for self centered arrogant Ph. D.s educated beyond their level of intelligence. They are pursuing hobbies at public expense coupled with an adversarial attitude toward society and its culture because they think it contributes to their importance or superiority, and because pompous irresponsibility and indolence with little quality control provide them with too much time on their hands leading to neurotic obsessions with word games. It’s become a neurotic con game played upon society and students. Students positively must receive a well rounded education that translates into an argument that liberal arts and countercultural professors must be kept in jobs, viewed with awe and reverence, and must continue to have a well rounded parasitic stranglehold on the colleges and universities of this country. The thrust is for job assurance and power while playing at pretentious hobbies. Liberal arts education little more than a pretentious self indulgent and reality-avoidant or hostile life style. Universities have long been collecting centers for a subculture of self-proclaimed intellectual elitists who considered themselves elevated to a point beyond respect for practical and realistic knowledge. The consequence is basket weaving play schools and kindergartens for functionally mental defective with good memories to hide in. They are also centers of socialism as it allows them an opportunity to parade their idealistic rejection of the common world and because they are dependent upon its generosity in support of childishness to support their positions and life style. Unfortunately, what has been described has grown into a pompous major industry too inhabited by a system of angry mediocre narcissists who exercise authority over other people’s lives.

The Media Subculture

According to polls and surveys made, 87 to 89 percent of TV and newspaper news people voted for the Clintons and for Obama, a clear measure of their competence and direction. They were typically people in high visibility and editorial management positions. Conservative journalists were relegated to smaller positions with limited influence. What about Rush Limbaugh as a refutation? Limbaugh is a better salesman than he is a thorough analyst. He’s popular and better than a sharp stick in the eye, but he’s not comprehensive or telling. He’s more like a biting insect than a serious contributor to the state of the art. The liberal media is characterized be an absence of serious journalistic standards and integrity coupled with attempts to obtain attention by going on warped crusades. The nightly news has become distortion, deletion of factuality not conforming to its point of view, and by propaganda. We live in one of the most highly censored societies in the world. The censirship is not directly imposed by government. It’s all done voluntarily by shallow people in key positions who want to be important.

The American people are being subjected to a pattern of verbally justified defiant sadism in all things. They are exhibiting a dangerous psychology of being accustomed to accepting it and to embracing their own economic and social destruction.

The Self-Sacraficial Subculture

Western civilization, and particular America has become obsessed with pursuit of the abstract notion of the nobility of embracing self-destruction for purposes of achieving a more humane society, or even world. A thousand sob stories are enlisted to induce guilt over not doing so. The vulgar reality is the flowery verbal model is an abstract system of evasion. What is intentionally built is a society more permissive and supportive of incompetence, of immature self indulgence, both by those receiving support for self-centered immaturity, as well as those making a prestigious living promising it. The transition back to a vulgar and realistic society and line of thought is difficult. We and other nations who have been infected with lyrical abstract evasion are finding that out. Too many people have become dependent upon it and the soft living it enables. Again, a lie repeated a thousand times becomes more believable than a truth stated but once.

It has become a become a distinct subculture that attracts people on the naive religious left as well as the supposed victims that subculture is intended to serve. The model for this and a splendid representative member of that subculture in the United states is George McGovern, who served as Senator for South Dakota from 1963 to 1981 and ran against Richard Nixon in 1972 for the Presidency.

McGovern is the is the son of a Methodist minister. As such he was well suited to continue in the mental softness he was raised in to become engaged in an easy life of theoretical academics far from the rigorous concrete realities of life. He has lived his life as a temporally detached sermon. One characteristic that is particularly galling, and is in fact dangerous, about religious liberals is that they analyze a supposed intolerability of present conditions strictly in terms of present time without emphasizing, or by avoiding consideration of, the antecedent personal actions that foreseeably produce them. They will seize upon an existent condition and often viciously and inexcusably beat other people over the head with it while remaining steadfastly indifferent to any other consideration. It is a basic aberration underwriting their life and mentality. To some extent this represents the softness in which they were raised. In other instances it reflects a severe gap in their intellectual ability. In still other instances it represents a desire to escape to escape the unyielding toughness of the real physical world which they consider mean and punitive. It not infrequently represents a confluence of all three contributing elements. The mode of thought is an apparently communicable form of mental debilitation, one among many, that people are more prone to become infected with as their society becomes more prosperous, spoiled, and mistakenly believes it is better able to tolerate, or subsidize, parasitism and stupidity.

McGovern was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1956, and re-elected two years later. After he lost an election for the U.S. Senate in 1960, Jack Kennedy appointed him as the first director of the new Food for Peace Program, thereby supporting him in a grand manner agreeable with his religious convictions until he could win a U. S. Senate seat several years later, and then run for the presidency.

McGovern became a campaigner for world food issues and against AIDS in his supposedly post-political life. Actually, it wasn’t really a post-political life. Although he did not personally run for office, he presented a system of thought that he hoped would eventually run for, and win, office. He didn’t campaign for world discipline issues or against prevalence of superstition issues or against cultural incompetence issues or any other behavioral issues known to result in hunger. Nor did he bring up the subject of the possibility that it might be an improvement for hungry nations if they would spend less effort on building a military and spend more effort on producing farm tractors or drilling wells. Nor did he concentrate efforts on criticizing and eliminating the behavior that transmits AIDS. However, he was of the implicit view God’s creation of food should be distributed on the basis of need, rather than on the discipline, effort, determination, and intelligence necessary to raise it. As such, McGovern became an advocate of entitlement without rational effort or instrumentality. When doctored up with pretty words this become the worst form of socialism in which the eschewing of personal or cultural realities is rendered irrelevant. As you can hear from a thousand religious pulpits, the world is made up of the haves and the have nots. The solution is to equalize the difference through redistribution, either on a voluntary basis or by other methods. In the event childishly incompetent cultures are reluctant to change, economic redistribution is like throwing the productivity of rational cultures down a rat hole.

McGovern’s head in the clouds of religious “love the sinner but hate the sin” mentality leads to a type of blindness and reluctance to tell people, in the strongest necessary language, that they are the source of their problems. It is not sufficient to announce you are against hunger or AIDS. It is necessary to direct effort against the causes. Plow the fields and stop indiscriminate sex, or you are going to die. It is also not sufficient to harangue Americans because they are not the solution –or the cause.

For all the good he did, he might just as well have carried on a protest against a solar eclipse. It probably makes no difference. He needed the issues and the opportunity to pound on his religious pulpit to make people not responsible for the problems feel guilty about being somehow responsible for the problems more than he needed a solution to the problems anyway. The ways of the self righteous ministry of faith are hard to part with and are easily transmitted from father to son.

In 2000, President Bill Clinton awarded McGovern the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America's highest civilian honor. A prestigious award was given to a cluck, by a cluck. Were any of Clinton’s girlfriends awarded one?

McGovern has died since this was written. The tearful accolades are pouring in. I’m certain he will be missed by some, but not at this house.

The parasitic second and third generation affluent life style

This Pickering thing is a role model that has been a source of severe irritation to me for 50 years. Such people consider the family business a unpleasant diversion from the soft life and enjoyable life in which they were raised. They already have status, visibility, and a comfortable income from the efforts of the previous generation. Their social life consists of holding court and conducting a superficial but charming presentation before those of similar background or those who want to be seen with them. Serious work is comparatively boring, unnecessary, threatening, and subtractive from the kind of life they have been leading or want to lead. It’s threatening in the sense that it is unfair in its arbitrary demand for diligence and taxes their level of competence and dedication. They form a distinct incompetent class that is primarily oriented toward achieving a satisfying flawed recognition or interpretation of each other as well as protecting class condition and prospects. To put it as someone once stated, they are people who were born on third base but believe they have hit a home run. At the least they believe they have achieved some type of accomplishment or hereditary superiority by having been born there and demonstrating proper social grace.

They are the modern American equivalent of charming useless fops. Some of them justify themselves and affect a role of prestige proportional to their subjective delusional impression of their self worth by going into politics or getting appointed to an important position in government. It requires little work or discipline and it’s all they have in life to occupy themselves and it augments their boasting power. It requires little more than the smiling and cordiality skills they had learned to practice while teenagers at the local country club or other social gatherings.

At least three generations of Bushs have gone into “public service” to perform their tasks dismally, but with an air of genteel cultivation. That’s one United States Senator followed by two presidents. Where they got their original money to begin engaging in dedication to this noble enterprise is unknown. In later years they were financed in business ventures by wealthy contacts made while going to school in elite colleges who believed in maintaining the same mentality and class structure. Hence the money was a good investment terms of producing a favorable class image. Investment in future influence through the advancement of a politically active and successful family was also a motivating factor. It was expected that their ventures in the business world were a temporary diversion while they prepared themselves to go into their primary family orientation, which was politics. Class dominance and superiority was well served.

Senator McCain is the useless soft playboy product from a prominent family line of a father and grandfather that were two navy full admirals who got him into the Annapolis Naval Academy on the strength of family influence and tradition where he went on to graduate near the bottom of his class. Fortunately, McCain was shot down in an airplane that he was, at best, marginally qualified to be in and taken prisoner in Viet Nam. Most men have been trying to put Viet Nam behind them. McCain was able to put Viet Nam in front of him with the result he has been was able to parade his Viet Nam experience into what has become a lifetime career in incompetent public service. Some people believe his poor performance as senator is not due to his mindlessness, but due to deliberate subversion.

No Kennedy has been involved in productive responsible work for two or three generations. At one time grandfather Joe Kennedy was one of the richest men in America and also Ambassador to Great Britain. His son, Jack, wrote an atrocious term paper in college during the 40s. Joe hired a bunch of professionals to clean the thing up and publish it as a book. It was still atrocious. Joe bought 35 or 50 thousand copies, I don’t remember the exact number, but it was enough to put it on the best seller list to present Jack as a certified published intellectual. From that point on it was a climb up toward the presidency with father Joe oiling the way by paying off people when necessary. In his run for president Kennedy was initially falling flat until the West Virginia primary. Father Joe surreptitiously furnished bags of money worth $250,000 to union leaders in the state through intermediaries to buy the West Virginia election, suddenly catapulting Jack into a visible and important/dominant figure. It becomes evident upon close examination that while Jack Kennedy enjoyed the hype and glamour surrounding the presidency, but he did not undertake the study and disciplined effort to be president. The presidency became a superficial party that played well in the media. (He was rescued from the unpleasant reality that his superficiality and playboy approach to the presidency would eventually result in and propelled into eternal likeability by an assassin’s bullet in late 1963. He is still revered as a god in some circles.)

Bobby Kennedy was elected senator from New York, a state from which he had never been a serious real resident. Nobody quarreled with it. There was an opening in New York and he was in a hurry. He was elected on the basis of being brother to the president, of having the now magical last name Kennedy, and having a 60 mile per hour mouth which ran constantly. That was good enough.

Teddy Kennedy campaigned for senator from Massachusetts. His main strength was that he was a Kennedy. I remember his opponent for office saying during a debate that the election was a joke and that if his name were Smith instead of Kennedy, Kennedy wouldn’t be a remote consideration for office given his absence of experience or any other qualifications. Being a Kennedy was enough to win. Teddy was as dumb as a clam, but standing between the attractive images his two brothers projected, no one would notice –or even care. Being a Kennedy was enough. The people who elected him were apparently stupider than he was. In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. He broke every rule in the book for years. But being a Kennedy was still good enough. He finally died and was declared “the last lion of the senate.”

Recent years have seen younger Kennedys lined up to engage in politics. They dabble in left wing organizations while waiting for the respectable age to begin engaging in running for office. They run on the magic name of Kennedy, and fondness for remembrance of the time of Camelot and youth that it evokes. John Jr. was being suggested for president until he died. There have been a number of other politically active younger Kennedys.

The question is why did the Kennedys become so progressively involved in left wing politics. Traditionally, wealth was identified with the Republican party. But this wasn’t about wealth. This was about pursuit of power and prestige plus engaging in an easy and glamorous way of life with little responsibility other than talking, smiling, and looking nice. There is no reason why that can’t be achieved through a bit of rabble rousing and cultivating a degenerate constituency. (Politics, especially presidential politics, is usually an ego trip with the welfare of the nation secondary. If most politicians were seriously concerned with the welfare of the nation, they would decline to run, then would suggest someone better suited for the job. That hasn’t happed lately.)

There has been an exponentially increasing market for the radical left and left wing politicians to accommodate an American nation that has descended into a quicksand of self indulgence and pursuit of immediate oriented impulse gratification coupled with cognitive deterioration and lack of consideration of long term consequences. This trend has had universal support or encouragement from the liberal media that is dominated by a steady influx of type of personalities being addressed here. It has become a media crusade. The life styles which are proceeding into prevalence, if not dominance, require attractive media public relations as well as political support. People demand to live in a totally non-threatening psychological atmosphere that tells them they are blameless victims of society, victims of governmental neglect, or victims of whatever. Telling people that is where the money and political power is. On the other hand, people become angry if they are told they are not victims of the system, but instead are victims of themselves, or of their own stupid decisions, or of their disregard for foreseeable consequences, or of what they are frequently doing in their calloused disregard for each other –even if it’s true. They are not victims. They are victimizers of the remainder of society through imposition of the intermediary of government. If you are a community organizer or slick Marxist politician the victimization of society is called democracy or more equitable distribution of wealth or another similar verbal construct. Some years ago I wrote an analysis, “Is America Governable?” under the developing circumstances. The conclusion was that it was not governable.

To say there has been an exponentially increasing market for the radical left and left wing politicians explains an apparent paradox. The United States Congress and government is riddled with wealthy descendants from illustrious families in open sympathy with Marxism or Paramarxism trying to fill that market while attempting to maintain class distinction described earlier.

I’m drifting away from the main subject. Let’s get back on track.

Who is Mitt Romney. Well... Well... He’s Governor Romney’s son –another soft product of affluence and prominence. This enabled him to engage in what is euphemistically called business in cooperation with somebody else’s useless sons to skim 300 million dollars for his own back pocket from vulnerable businesses, then leaving them in backruptcy or near-bankruptcy. His political positions, if he ever had any, varied from week to week depending upon which group he was talking to and trying to soft-soap. In the pre-presidential debates with Obama, his performance did not approach that of most high school pupils. He floundered miserably and had nothing to say. There was no evidence of having thought through anything, The light was on, with an appealing smile and manner, but nobody was home. That was the limit of his ability and intellect. Obama, although asserting weak or erroneous and even destructive points, remained uncontested. There are now various theories as to why Romney lost the election. None of them begins with the important question as to why he was even in the election. He entered the race for president because he was an inept kid looking for the presidency as a class trophy to place upon his mantlepiece.

America is being overwhelmed with an abundance of such people. The above are example of people who went into politics because it is an ideal career for such personalities. Others pretend to function in various parasitic or hereditary positions. The preponderance of such people is destroying the country. The Republican party is now dominated by such personalities to the point of uselessness, leaving mature thinking people believing they have no place to go.

The biggest number one threat to America is Americans. We have become so spoiled, stupid, and obliviously self preoccupied that we are a danger to ourselves and mess up everything we touch.

The original ultimate subject of this article was former congressman and now presidential candidate Virgil Goode. Goode has not been trained, or has freed himself, to treat the realities, and the realistic nuts and bolts of life in terms other than that of the unvarnished raw truth. That’s exactly what is needed in America and, indeed, the world --a good dose of raw reality and tough love.

Here is a brief synopsis on Goode's positions on some issues as released on the internet immediately after his being chosen as the presidential nominee of the Constitution Party:

The Issues:

* The Constitution: Emphasizing and following the Constitution will mean a smaller less costly government, which is vital for the future prosperity and progress of the United States. * Jobs, the Debt and Deficit: Under the Obama Administration, unemployment has soared to around 8.5 percent. Our debt has increased by over 4 trillion dollars under the Obama Presidency, which has also given us trillion dollar deficits. The United States can not borrow its way to prosperity. It is incumbent on our next President to propose a balanced budget upon taking office and not ten years down the road. There will be pain, but the old saying that one will not get out of the hole by digging the hole deeper is accurate. Nearly every department and agency will face significant cuts and some will face elimination. Veterans benefits is an example that will not be cut. Examples of programs eliminated include the National Endowment for the Arts, No Child Left Behind, etc. Other programs and departments, such as Foreign Aid and Education, will be slashed and trimmed. Reducing regulations and becoming energy independent will also mean more jobs for America. The Canada to Texas pipeline needs to be built and operational expeditiously and not delayed or stopped as the current Administration is doing. Another way to reduce unemployment, reduce the deficit, and provide more jobs for U.S. citizens is to reduce legal immigration. In recent years about 1.2 million green cards have been issued annually and over 60% go to foreigners who come to the United States and take jobs from American citizens. I have proposed a moratorium (with a few minor exceptions) on issuing green cards until our unemployment rate is under 5 percent. America has one of the most liberal immigration policies in the world and it is time for the citizens of this country to be at the head of the line for jobs. We also need to totally end diversity visas (50,000 per year), reduce chain migration, and dramatically reduce asylees and refugees and their costs to the U.S. taxpayer. * Immigration: Illegal immigration must stop. Our borders must be secure. In Congress, I supported and cosponsored legislation to stop illegal aliens, terrorists, drug smugglers, and other criminals from coming across our Southern border. We need to utilize troops, fences, and other measures to stop the invasion from Mexico. I was the first to sponsor legislation providing for a fence along the Southern Border. We must continue to fight for funding and for adequacy of the fence.

Illegal immigration costs the United States taxpayers billions every year through increased health care costs, social service utilization, emergency room fees, prison expenses, and in other areas. For example, of the 189,000 federal prisoners, 50,000 are illegal or recent aliens costing the taxpayers millions of dollars for their incarceration.

We must end the anchor baby situation, whereby a child of illegal aliens is an automatic citizen of the United States. * Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants: I oppose granting amnesty for those persons who come into the United States illegally. Amnesty did not work in the 1980s. Amnesty did not work in the 1990s, and it will not solve the problem now. Amnesty only encourages more illegal entry into the United States. Legal immigration must be reduced not increased. Congress, the United States Senate, and the President need to adopt a position of a strong NO to amnesty. As President, I would immediately direct the Attorney General to support and NOT oppose the efforts of Arizona, Alabama and others to deal with the illegal problem in the states. * English as the Official Language: I continue to support English as the official language of the United States of America. Energy Costs: The United States must be free of foreign fossil fuel. Freedom from the Middle Eastern sheiks, Nigeria, and Venezuela is necessary for a continued bright future for our country. We cannot allow OPEC to control our energy supply. The United States must develop its own resources and alternative fuel sources. Hydrogen, biodiesel, and other alternative energy sources have potential in making us less dependent on foreign fossil fuels. I also support the utilization of nuclear power and expanded drilling opportunities for natural gas and oil in this country so that our energy needs are met by domestic and not foreign sources. I have supported and will continue supporting drilling in Alaska and the continental United States. If President, I would support the drilling off our coasts where it can be done safely and where the states, such as Virginia, have passed legislation requesting offshore drilling.

Being free of a need for foreign fossil fuel will enable us to be free of the shifting sands of the Middle East. * Tax Reductions and Fairness: I support the elimination of the Death Tax. Death should not mean the end of the family farm or the family business. A death tax often precludes families from having the homestead or family business.

I support and have voted to terminate the current IRS Code at a date determined in the future so it can be replaced with something simpler and fairer. There are several alternatives to the current Code and include the Fair Tax, the Flat Tax, the Transaction Tax, and others. Between the current IRS code and the Fair Tax, I would support the Fair Tax with certain modifications. For example, the Fair Tax, which is basically a national sales tax, has a prebate of $180 per month per person, which should be limited to United States citizens, who are adults and who reside in the United States. I would support a Fair Tax only if certain other taxes, such as the Death Tax and Income Tax were eliminated. If the Income Tax were to be retained, then I would oppose a national sales tax and have a simple flat rate income tax and scrap the current code with its inequities. * Medical Costs: A big factor in medical costs is the high cost of malpractice insurance for our physicians and other health care providers. I support tort reform that will limit attorney fees and the amount of damages recoverable for non-economic losses. * Social Security: We must preserve and protect Social Security. Social Security is owed over two trillion dollars. Social Security should be repaid and have real money in the Social Security Trust Fund and not IOU's. * Marriage: I believe that marriage should be a union between a man and a woman. I am opposed to gay marriages and so-called gay civil unions. I support the federal Marriage Protection Amendment. * Health Care: I support ending Obamacare. * Public Education: Washington should not be running our local school systems. We need to leave local education decisions to the states and localities. I am opposed to national testing of public school students and voted against "No Child Left Behind" with its new mandates and new tests that must comply with national standards. I support ending the federal Department of Education. * Crime and the Second Amendment: We need to maintain capital punishment for certain murders and to fully prosecute those who commit crimes with firearms. I fully support the right of an individual to protect himself or herself against assault and violent attack. I was honored to be co-chair of the Second Amendment Caucus during part of my tenure in Congress. * National Defense: We need a strong national defense. However, reckless federal spending which has given us a deficit in excess of one trillion dollars necessitates cutting defense spending. We must now come home from Afghanistan and reduce our expenditures around the globe. * Veteran's Benefits: I support funding for veterans' health care and providing health care benefits to all veterans. We also need to insure that the Veteran's Administration works with and on behalf of our veterans. * Abortion: In the United States House of Representatives, I had a consistent pro-life voting record and in 2008 the National Right to Life Political Action Committee commended me "for your 100 percent pro-life voting record throughout your twelve years of service in the U.S. House of Representatives". As President I would continue to oppose abortion and would submit a budget to Congress with zero funding for planned parenthood and any other similar entities. * International Relations: I oppose the placement of our Armed Forces under United Nations command. We need to curtail expenditures to the UN, the World Bank, the IMF, and to foreign nations. Our sovereignty, in my opinion, should always be paramount. I also vigorously oppose Agenda 21 and other globalism schemes so harmful to the citizens of the United States. * North American Union: We need to block any union between the United States, Mexico, and Canada. The sovereignty of the United States must be preserved. In Congress I sponsored a resolution against the North American Union. * Trade: Agreements like NAFTA and the trade provisions in fast track authorization lead to the erosion of this country's vital manufacturing base. I do not favor international trade agreements such as these that result in a loss of American sovereignty and jobs. * Term Limits: Term limits for members of the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate are necessary for a Congress more responsive to the needs of our country and its citizens. Many members focus too much time and attention on raising money for the next election. Term limits will result in members caring more about the general good for the county. If elected President, I will serve only one term and not focus on raising money and getting votes for the next election. The country shall be first.

End synopsis.

(Goode was at one time a conservative Democrat. Much to his credit, he was expelled from the Democratic party for voting to impeach Bill Clinton.)

It seems as though Virgil Goode has many of the important issues seriously covered in a way not attempted by present Republican or Democratic candidates. I am not in 100% agreement with positively everything that was said in his statement. Some areas need further explanation and a little touching up. The bare initial statement presented here was not widely presented beyond obscure internet sites. Any subsequent refinements and detailed explanations have been subjected to a blackout in the popular media. For practical purposes Virgil Goode, and his point of view, which is representative of many millions of intelligent people, are portrayed as nonexistent in the popular public media.

What we are instead presented with as the only choices for the presidency are two ambitious demagogue personality boys, goofs, who are in fundamental agreement but trading quips and one liners over trivia in their respective vaudeville acts in what is presented to be a presidential campaign debate. Meanwhile the only man to offer a serious consistent sane alterative and choice was barred from participation.

You will not find most of the issues discussed in this article discussed in the presidential campaign debates. The debates are kept as irrelevant as possible.

This is all I have time to say. If I had to I could write another 50 or 100 pages on the area. However, I am very busy with other pressing projects and I have health problems.

I have no idea however it would not surpise me.

My view is all people that seek to run for office that do nothing to reduce expenditure, create more loss of economic freedom and create more laws destructive to individual liberty are the lowest of pond scum regardless of what party they belong to.  ANY government that forces redistribution of wealth upon the productive in order to give it to those that did NOT earn it and through their own irresponsibility definitely do NOT deserve it is an immoral government of the HIGHEST degree.  The fact that the democrats have stooped to such a low level does not surprise me in the least, I honestly do not believe republicans(as misguided as they are) would stoop to such levels.  The dems have been caught doing so many bullshit things and they as well as the media just shrug it off as "business as usual".  If the republicans did a TENTH of the exact same thing the media would be allll over it like shit on a farmers boot.  

Picture if you will this scenario.

Lets just say hypothetically speaking Ron Paul was president.  I use Ron Paul because his foreign policy is really weak, but bear with me for a moment. 

What would the media have done if Ron Paul had been president during Benghazi and it had been discovered that there was indeed a cover up and "somehow" troops were ordered to stand down- and jet fighters capable of precision laser guided rockets were an hour away and never came. Troops were 2-3 hours away.  The media would have crucified him!!  There would have been riots!

Not so with the democrats, and now they have pretty much carte blanche to finish bringing America to it's knees.

I should be seriously disconcerted if, in this culture, I were not considered eccentric,...

Eccentricity is not, as dull people would have us believe, a form of madness. It is often a kind of innocent pride, and the man of genius and the aristocrat are frequently regarded as eccentrics because genius and aristocrat are entirely unafraid of and uninfluenced by the opinions and vagaries of the crowd.
Edith Sitwell (1887 - 1964), Taken Care Of ,1965

Too many people are labelled "eccentric" these days in my opinion though - basically anyone who is anything more than about one deviation from centre of the normal curve which even includes daring to wear a green and white striped shirt instead of a blue and white striped shirt in conservative circles. "Oh! Do look at Henry! He is such an eccentric!"

Democrats Groom the Mentally Disabled to Vote

Rosie's picture

http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfro...

I am incredibly steamed this Thanksgiving Holiday over what the Democrats are doing to my country.

Everybody by now knows – or should know – how readily Democrats conduct election fraud, and how determined they are to defend it. James O’Keefe and others have taken videos of paid Democratic operatives encouraging citizens to vote twice. O’Keefe was even able to claim Attorney General Eric Holder’s own ballot at a district polling place by claiming to be him, and then to vote in his place.

Democrats have promoted Motor Voter laws and same day registration, and month-long election days to help them mobilize the votes of people who are so unconnected to the political process and so uninterested in the country’s future, and perhaps so incompetent to understand what voting entails, that they require keepers to see that they get to the polls and then vote the “right” way.

In the election that put Al Franken in the Senate by a few hundred votes, more than a thousand felons voted illegally because of the loose laws that govern the polling booth – laws the Democrats want to make more loose.

It is in fact the number one civil rights issue of the NAACP this year to give felons the right to vote. So we know that Democrats have little respect for the election process, and we should assume will attempt to pursue their victories by any means necessary.

But even knowing this, I was not prepared for a conversation I had at Thanksgiving dinner with my brother-in-law, Henry, who has lived most of his life in a home for the mentally disabled and although now in his 40s, has the intelligence level of a 6-year-old.

“Obama saved me,” he said to me out of the blue.

“What do you mean?”

“I voted for him for president and now he’s saving me.”

I was taken aback by these words, since Henry had no idea who Obama was, or what a president might be, and would be unable to fill out a registration form let alone get to the polling place by himself.

So I asked him how he knew that and how he had registered and cast his vote. In halting, impeded speech he told me that the people who take care of him at the home filled out “the papers” to register him to vote, told him how Obama cared for him, even taught him the Obama chants, and then took him to the polling place to vote. They did the same for all of the mentally disabled patients in their care, approximately 60 in all.

This is so appalling in its contempt for the voting process, which is the very foundation of our democracy, and in its cynical exploitation of my brother-in-law and the other patients in the home, many whose mental capacities are even more limited than Henry's. I am at a loss for words to express it.

I hope poll-watching groups like “True the Vote” will comb the rolls of residents at other homes for the mentally disabled, and attempt to stop this particular abuse. I hope that people who care about our country will make electoral fraud a focus of their political efforts, and work to protect the integrity of the voting process.

In the verbal world words can be strung together in any sequence or association imaginable. Increasinglywith advancement in educational levels, we're be taught that the verbal world takes precedence over the real world. Consequently it's possible to have good rattlesnakes and under the rules of the verbal world the assertion can not be refuted.

Ayn Rand said many years ago that A is A. In my own view, reality is reality. Much of education and most of left wing politics tells us that A is B or that unreality is reality. This has become the mark of creative genius in a society that has gone nuts. Frankly, there is nothing we can do about it.

If a correction is made, it will be made by reality. Most people today are too isolated from reality to be corrected by it until the consequences are catastrophic. Islam can be asserted as wonderful as long as you are not required to live under it.

To denounce such conduct would be to denounce the most authoritative holy books of islam and be guilty of apostasy. What you presume is such willingness exists on the part of muslims. Do not be deceived by a veneer of pleasantness. You think you know them. You do not. If they were not in allegiance with such conduct, they would not be muslims.

Good points. Kavanagh also fails by saying "good" and "Islam" in the same breath. I believe he realizes what he is saying; that it is impossible to turn this around, unless they're turned back, and booted.

Leonard at least has fire in his belly still, to the point of being a hero, but he goes wildly astray with things like the fatwa, the threat of a Goblian theocracy and transgenderism (with attitudes like Leonard's to transsexuals, who needs a Goblian theocracy?!).

ARI have been pulling in the money, from all accounts, but are becoming more and more KASSless.

ARI's Binswanger charges money to folk willing to be screened for ideological purity for commentaries that at best are no better than the ones I supply here for nothing and should be out there for the world to see, and at worst are contaminated by the naive, rationalistic ignorance of the world as it is that has long been Objectivism's bane (yes, I do get to see Harry's commentaries).

The KASSless Society, in the meantime, seems to have become all but invisible. I can't imagine its donors wanting to put money in much longer to an enterprise that has so few runs on the board. When was the last David Kelley sighting?! Ed Hudgins does great op-eds, but never follows up. Those guys seem to me to be merely passing the time warming seats. And KASSless has been curiously silent about Atlas Pt 2. The deadly virus of Brandroidism, I suspect ...

In my opinion, when a muslim population reaches 1% it's asking for trouble. Islam is, at best, a constant irate and hostile presence ready to explode. The islamic army psychiatrist who was an expression of our enlightened multicultral diversity killed as many of his fellow soldiers as possible on a jihadist rampage to the tune of allah akbar didn't need other muslims to help him decide to to it, or to aid him in doing it. None of these nutcases raised in, and acceptant of, serious pathology is to be trusted at all. Every mosque in this country should be burnt to the ground.

Wow. Pure KASS. Its true that Muslims cause disruptions with as little as 1% of the total population. They are destructive way out of proportion to their numbers.

But most Objectivists won't even consider immigration bans or deportations or Mosque shutdowns. Their approach to individual rights is to treat them as a suicide pact. I can't even bring myself to read the commentary from Objectivists on the subject of Islam. With few exceptions there is no one writing commentary in the O'ist community who has a clue on Islam. Or the Left for that matter. Which is why I am so disgusted by official Objectivism.

Of course this site is an exception. But official Objectivism and most Objectivists consider Lindsay to be eccentric and SOLO is basically discounted.

"The good name of Islam is far from enhanced by almost daily authentic reports of honour killings, forced marriages and Pakistani child sex gangs. Nor are we likely to feel at ease with the Muslim enclaves described by Clarissa when they harbour thousands who would and could do this country harm.

We spent a decade deporting rabble-rousing cleric Abu “Hooky” Hamza. Now we seem doomed to waste another getting rid of terror mastermind Abu Qatada.

Interestingly, a few pages on from yesterday’s story about “f***ing Muslims” is a detailed account of Qatada’s “fatwa”, allegedly issued after 9/11, ordering the slaughter of innocent British civilians.

There are calls for him to be charged with incitement to murder.

These are not yellow newspaper cuttings. Last month, an NHS doctor was nabbed after allegedly leading a terror cell in Syria and holding a kidnapped British photographer at the point of an AK-47.

These are stories about Britain today, a country where up to 30,000 young men are being politicised and, in some cases, trained to fight against their fellow citizens.

True, the vast majority of British Muslims want nothing to do with such sinister activities.

But unless they and their leaders stand up and loudly and repeatedly denounce such conduct, their community will always be surrounded by fear and suspicion."

You hit it right on the button!

Academics have always been hostile to an unappreciative outside society which refused to give them the reverance they thought they deserved. With the immigration of Frankfurt School Members during the late '20s and early '30s, academics were provided with a unifying and directive force from a strong dose of Lukaks and a smattering of Gramsci. This was infused into generations of graduating school teachers, journalists, and lawyers under academic freedom. The battle was won.

When I was in graduate school during the sixties our social psychology text extolled the virtues of the Frankfurt School.

The New Clergy

Doug Bandler's picture

Colleges have become a serious money making proposition with a secondary goal of aggrandizing the mental status and necessity of all professors, no matter what trivia they teach.

The universities are the new Priesthood and the professors the new clerical class. The entire thing is a fraud and all of it is propped up by massive government subsidies and the semi-socialization of high school education.

The Marxists had a great plan. Capture the schools and all the rest will fall in line. That's exactly what they did. And the Republicans have assisted them; ie President Bush's "leave no child behind". Now, if the Conservatives had a clue they would fight to abolish the public schools and end ALL government loans and subsidies. But of course they don't have a clue.

Today's universities are a way for modern liberals to engage in status jockeying. All societies have their status hierarchies. Today, that hierarchy orients around one's commitment to modern liberalism and its main institutions. Challenge that and you could find yourself out in the cold. Rand spoke about this in one of her essays although I forgot which one. Of course she didn't frame it like I did. Rand never used the term "left", although that's who she was attacking in every one of her novels. Something most Objectivists seem to have forgotten.

Parents Are Losing Their Faith in College Education
By Business Insider
Posted 6:00AM 11/19/12 Posted under: College Finance, Family Money

By Mandi Woodruff

Citing rising tuition costs and a poor job market, 20 percent of middle class parents now say they don't consider a college education to be a worthy investment.

The finding was cited in the latest Merill Edge Report, a semiannual survey that looks at financial concerns among American adults earning $50,000 to $250,000 per year.

"Parents continue to financially support their children's education, yet 40 percent of the [middle class] express concern over the rising cost of college," the report says.

It's no wonder they're worried. More than half of middle class families plan on dipping into their own savings to fund their childrens' college education, and an increasing number of parents have found their finances tangled up in the ongoing student loan crisis.

Of course, much of college graduates' success depends on what area of study they pursue.

"The return on the college investment is driven by the institution a student attends, the degree they earn, and their field of study," Mark Schneider of the American Institute for Research told Business Insider. "As college has become a mass product, there are a lot more students attending schools with lower [returns on investment]."

The five lowest-paying majors are nearly all in the social service sector, while computer sciences and engineering programs continue to churn out high-paid workers. A recent PayScale study listed the median mid-career pay for a Petroleum Engineering major at $163,000 and the median mid-career pay for a Social Work major at just $45,300.

Of the 1,000+ parents polled by Merrill Edge, just over one-third plan on relying on scholarships and grants, and about one-in-four will ask their kids to chip in. Yet again, one of the simplest ways to save for college is still vastly underused -- just 20 percent of families take advantage of education savings plans, according to the report.

And they're not exactly learning from their mistakes.

"Half of [middle class] parents with children who did, or will, attend college, wish they had started saving for their first child's education earlier," the report says. "However, only one-third (32 percent) of this group are actually saving differently for their second child's education than they did for their first."

While the value of college education will likely remain hotly debated, there's no underestimating the value of starting to save as early as possible.

READER'S COMMENTS

So glad for this article. There have been others that flesh-out the issue more fully. For some good economic reasoning on the issue read: L. Kotlikoff's book "Spend till the End." Like marriage and kids, most individuals simply follow the crowd and blindly go where others go, instead of really examining whether the normal, socially acceptable route of living their lives is right, affordable and sensible for them. College is one of those socially acceptable behaviors that folks blithely concede they'll experience, even if they have no idea what they want to do. These types usually waste time and money. Some folks should go to community college or vocational schools and learn solid skills and business planning. We need artists, musicians, social workers, etc., but we also need electricians, plumbers, mechanics, and factory workers who can understand and program various computerized systems with good training. College is NOT the answer for everyone and parents should seriously talk with their children about their plans as early as possible. I personally do not believe parents should sacrifice their retirement for their kids, UNLESS they are relatively certain of the ROI and will get substantial financial aid in various forms, including the child in question. As an aside: Colleges need to also lower the cost or increase grants and stipends to students particulary those pursuing math, science and technology

Overall, Chinese students accounted for a quarter of all international students studying in the United States in 2011-2012: 194,029 students from China studied in the United States, 23 percent more than the year before. India sent the next-highest number of students—100,270—for the 2011-2012 year, and Saudi Arabia sent 34,139 students, 50 percent more than in 2010-2011.

My comment: That's one million students. The students studying anything worth while are foreign students. When I was a staff member at a major university, in a major engineering department we had only one American student. Many of the professors were also foreign. Useless American kids are studying useless drivel.

--------------------------------------------


Families are right to be losing faith in college educations. I've taught in colleges. Never once was my class evaluated. Never once did anyone even inquire as to what the content was.

Both my masters and my BS degrees were a total waste of time and money. The masters degree was a joke -- "professors" who "rapped" with students most of the time, who assigned lame skits as class projects and who issued grades without reading the papers submitted.

Colleges are no longer places to become educated. They are profit centers, pure and clear.

If you want an education, read. Read everything you can get your hands on. But, don't bother reading text books. They, too, are simply a device for garnering profits for the "professors" who edit them every year so that they can sell the new "updated" copy at an egregiously inflated price. Oh - and in my masters degree, NO ONE read the texts, including the professors.

A college degree may be the ticket to get in the door for companies that require them, but they have nothing to do with whether the applicant is educated or up to the job. They are, at best, proof that you are willing to pay your dues in time and money.

Colleges are no longer places to become educated. They are profit centers, pure and clear.

RLK's note: In about 1980 or '81 I wrote an article in this area. In doing so, I pilfered information from another reputable article, probably from the WSJ or equivalent, stating there were 10,000,000 academics in the United States. Even is we assume the figure was hyped, higher education is the largest single major industry in the United States. It dwarfs any other major industry. The educational community also has established one of the most powerful labor unions is the world. The basis of this establishment is not formal. Is is based in mutual arrogance, the basis of mutual agreement upon the status and necessity of advanced degrees, the power to arbitrarily grant or deny those degrees, and the power inadvertantly delegated by society in requiring supposedly educated people at arbitrary levels.

Colleges have become a serious money making proposition with a secondary goal of aggrandizing the mental status and necessity of all professors, no matter what trivia they teach.

addendum.

This is an addendum to the main article posted here:

The parasitic second and third generation affluent life style

This Pickering thing is a role model that has been a source of severe irritation to me for 50 years. Such people consider the family business a unpleasant diversion from the soft life and enjoyable life in which they were raised. They already have status, visibility, and a comfortable income from the efforts of the previous generation. Their social life consists of holding court and conducting a superficial but charming presentation before those of similar background or those who want to be seen with them. . Serious work is comparatively boring, unnecessary, threatening, and subtractive from the kind of life they have been leading or want to lead. It’s threatening in the sense that it is unfair and taxes their level of competence and dedication. They form a distinct incompetent class that is primarily oriented toward achieving a satisfying flawed recognition or interpretation of each other as well as protecting class condition and prospects. To put it as someone once stated, they are people who were born on third base but believe they have hit a home run. At the least they believe they have achieved some type of accomplishment or hereditary superiority by having been born there and demonstrating proper social grace.

They are the modern American equivalent of charming useless fops. Some of them justify themselves and affect a role of prestige proportional to their subjective delusional impression of their self worth by going into politics or getting appointed to an important position in government. It requires little work or discipline and it’s all they have in life to occupy themselves and it augments their boasting power. It requires little more than the smiling and cordiality skills they had learned to practice while teenagers at the local country club or other social gatherings.

At least three generations of Bushs have gone into “public service” to perform their tasks dismally, but with an air of genteel cultivation. That’s one United States Senator followed by two presidents. Where they got their original money to begin engaging in dedication to this noble enterprise is unknown. In later years they were financed in business ventures by wealthy contacts made while going to school in elite colleges who believed in maintaining the same mentality and class structure. Hence the money was a good investment terms of producing a favorable class image. Investment in future influence through the advancement of a politically active and successful family was also a motivating factor. It was expected that their ventures in the business world were a temporary diversion while they prepared themselves to go into their primary family orientation, which was politics. Class dominance and superiority was well served.

Senator McCain is the useless soft playboy product from a prominent family line of a father and grandfather that were two navy full admirals who got him into the Annapolis Naval Academy on the strength of family influence and tradition where he went on to graduate near the bottom of his class. Fortunately, McCain was shot down in an airplane that he was, at best, marginally qualified to be in and taken prisoner in Viet Nam. Most men have been trying to put Viet Nam behind them. McCain was able to put Viet Nam in front of him with the result he has been was able to parade his Viet Nam experience into what has become a lifetime career in incompetent public service. Some people believe his poor performance as senator is not due to his mindlessness, but due to deliberate subversion.

No Kennedy has been involved in productive responsible work for two or three generations. At one time grandfather Joe Kennedy was one of the richest men in the nation and also Ambassador to Great Britain. His son, Jack, wrote an atrocious term paper in college during the 40s. Joe hired a bunch of professionals to clean the thing up and publish it as a book. It was still atrocious. Joe bought 35 or 50 thousand copies, I don’t remember the exact number, but it was enough to put it on the best seller list to present Jack as a certified published intellectual. From that point on it was a climb up toward the presidency with father Joe oiling the way by paying off people when necessary. In his run for president Kennedy was initially falling flat until the West Virginia primary. Father Joe surreptitiously furnished bags of money worth $250,000 to union leaders in the state through intermediaries to buy the West Virginia election, suddenly catapulting Jack into a visible and important/dominant figure. It becomes evident upon close examination that while Jack Kennedy enjoyed the hype and glamour surrounding the presidency, but he did not undertake the study and disciplined effort to be president. The presidency became a superficial party that played well in the media. (He was rescued from the unpleasant reality that his superficiality and playboy approach to the presidency would eventually result in and propelled into eternal like ability by an assassin’s bullet in late 1963. He is still revered as a god in some circles.)

Bobby Kennedy was elected senator from New York, a state from which he had never been a serious real resident. Nobody quarreled with it. There was an opening in New York and he was in a hurry. He was elected on the basis of being brother to the president, of having the now magical last name Kennedy, and having a 60 mile per hour mouth which ran constantly. That was good enough.

Teddy Kennedy campaigned for senator from Massachusetts. His main strength was that he was a Kennedy. I remember his opponent for office saying during a debate that the election was a joke and that if his name were Smith instead of Kennedy, Kennedy wouldn’t be a remote consideration for office given his absence of experience or any other qualifications. Being a Kennedy was enough to win. Teddy was as dumb as a clam, but standing between the attractive images his two brothers projected, no one would notice –or even care. Being a Kennedy was enough. The people who elected him were apparently stupider than he was. In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. He broke every rule in the book for years. But being a Kennedy was still good enough. He finally died and was declared “the last lion of the senate.”

Recent years have seen younger Kennedys lined up to engage in politics. They dabble in left wing organizations while waiting for the respectable age to begin engaging in running for office. They run on the magic name of Kennedy, and fondness for remembrance of the time of Camelot and youth that it evokes. John Jr. was being suggested for president until he died. There have been a number of other politically active younger Kennedys.

The question is why did the Kennedys become so progressively involved in left wing politics. Traditionally, wealth was identified with the Republican party. But this wasn’t about wealth. This was about pursuit of power and prestige plus engaging in an easy and glamorous way of life with little responsibility other than talking, smiling, and looking nice. There is no reason why that can’t be achieved through a bit of rabble rousing and cultivating a degenerate constituency. (Politics, especially presidential politics, is usually an ego trip with the welfare of the nation secondary. If most politicians were seriously concerned with the welfare of the nation, they would decline to run, then would suggest someone better suited for the job. That hasn’t happed lately.)

There has been an exponentially increasing market for the radical left and left wing politicians to accommodate an American nation that has descended into a quicksand of self indulgence and pursuit of immediate oriented impulse gratification coupled with cognitive deterioration and lack of consideration of long term consequences. This trend has had universal support or encouragement from the liberal media that is dominated by a steady influx of type of personalities being addressed here. It has become a media crusade. The life styles which are proceeding into prevalence, if not dominance, require attractive media public relations as well as political support. People demand to live in a totally non-threatening psychological atmosphere that tells them they are blameless victims of society, victims of governmental neglect, or victims of whatever. Telling people that is where the money and political power is. On the other hand, people become angry if they are told they are not victims of the system, but instead are victims of themselves, or of their own stupid decisions, or of their disregard for foreseeable consequences, or of what they are frequently doing in their calloused disregard for each other –even if it’s true. They are not victims. They are victimizers of the remainder of society through imposition of the intermediary of government. If you are a community organizer or slick Marxist politician the victimization of society is called democracy or more equitable distribution of wealth or another similar verbal construct. Some years ago I wrote an analysis, “Is America Governable?” under the developing circumstances. The conclusion was that it was not governable.

To say there has been an exponentially increasing market for the radical left and left wing politicians explains an apparent paradox. The United States Congress and government is riddled with wealthy descendants from illustrious families in open sympathy with Marxism or Paramarxism trying to fill that market while attempting to maintain class distinction described earlier.

I’m drifting away from the main subject. Let’s get back on track.

Who is Mitt Romney. Well... Well... He’s Governor Romney’s son –another soft product of affluence and prominence. This enabled him to engage in what is euphemistically called business in cooperation with somebody else’s sons. His political positions, if he ever had any, varied from week to week depending upon which group he was talking to and trying to soft-soap. In the pre-presidential debates with Obama, his performance did not approach that of most high school pupils. He floundered miserably and had nothing to say. There was no evidence of having thought through anything, The light was on, with an appealing smile and manner, but nobody was home. That was the limit of his ability and intellect. Obama, although asserting weak or erroneous and even destructive points, remained uncontested. There are now various theories as to why Romney lost the election. None of them begins with the important question as to why he was even in the election. He entered the race for president because he was an inept kid looking for the presidency as a class trophy to place upon his mantlepiece. He had no serious business in the race.

America is being overwhelmed with an abundance of such people. The above are example of people who went into politics because it is an ideal career for such personalities. Others pretend to function in various parasitic or hereditary positions. The preponderance of such people is destroying the country. The Republican party is now dominated by such personalities to the point of uselessness, leaving mature thinking people believing they have no place to go.

Another consequence is brainless kids from affluent families with illustrious names like Pickering, Kennedy, and Bush flooding into Government.

Too True

Doug Bandler's picture

There is a lesson in this for all of us.

Yes, the Hispanic vote is a major problem especially given that there is massive voter fraud and that illegals can even vote for godsakes. Which is why I keep saying that immigration should be MASSIVELY halted right now for self defensive reasons. The Left wants as many non-whites to enter the country as possible because they know that they will vote Democrat. The Left is trying to conquer the fucking country and they will use any means necessary.

Most Objectivists are "open immigration" and have no real understanding on what the Left is doing with voter fraud. More fucking naivete from Objectivists. This is a fucking WAR and the very nation is at stake.

Comcerning immigration and reconquisa.

This may not be of interest to an internet site in New Zealand. I was born and raised in the conservative midwestern state of Iowa in the U. S.. I haven't been there in 20 years, and then only for a short visit. I've been watching the results of the presidential election come in.

It is stated and widely accepted that the goal and limit of reconquista was limited to reacquisition of six or seven states in the American Southwest. Tonight the state voted as majority for Obama. The reason given was that a massive flood of Mexican immigration had moved in to take root, voted, and given the electoral vote to Obama.

There is a lesson in this for all of us.

Love Pat Condell

So you'll be acquiring a copy of Total Passion for the Total Height and doing a review on Amazon then?

Yes. I must read that book. I absolutely loved your "rational rage" speech. Total KASSness. The ARI is shooting itself in the foot by not hiring you as a spokesman.

Regarding Pat Condell,

He's awesome. Not an O'ist but as good as you can get without being one. He understands the evil of Islam and he gets the danger of Christianity. BUT, he knows the difference. I respect that. Plus he's British. The British have a way of making everything sound witty and smart. Americans have a way of making everything sound stupid and boring.

Mr Kocher

Doug Bandler's picture

Regarding Pickering, Is he related to the man of that name who was part of America's founding generation? If he is, he has contaminated that honorable family name.

Regarding this:

I believe Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead is one of the top psychotherapeutic books ever written, for those ready to read it.

'Atlas Shrugged' is actually even better by your definition of psycho-analysis. In that book, she rips the left into pieces as they have never been ripped before. She exposes the malevolence in the heart, mind and soul of modern liberalism and many if not most liberals (once they get past a certain age).

Regarding Bushido:

Interesting. The way you describe it, it sounds entirely rational and honorable.

You are an interesting man.

Olivia is correct. I am not a

RLKocher's picture

Olivia is correct. I am not a Christian, and never have been. My parents sent me to Sunday School at one time. I found it to be a thoroughly dreary and depressing experience. I doubt that Jesus was either well adjusted or divine. I do not believe God interferes in the affairs of man. That's feel-good mythology. In this world, if you make shit out of your life, you're pretty much stuck with it.

I am a psychoanalytic, logical positivist realist who believes in or subscribes to a moderized form of Bushido. Don't seize on that. The key words here are realist and modernized.

I am psychoanaltic because I believe it offers the greatest understanding of human human motivations, needs, and pathologies. There is far more to psychoanalysis than reading Freud's introductory lectures. In my case the psychoanalytic view is combined with a strong measure of behaviorism. Super orthodox psychoanalysts would say the proper word to apply would not be combined, but contaminated. Some behaviorists also consider me contaminated by psychoanalysis. (From the aspect of distance and obstinate psychopathic indifference, I find that many people will seize upon a school of thought unconditionally in an attempt to gain authority, a feeling of personal security, and prestige. It can be a religion, a social fashion, a school of pseudoscientific theory, or whatever. They are untalented joiners without interest in analyzing.)

I am a logical positive realist in the sense of Gustav Bergmann who I used to play with in the halls when I was a student. Bergmann taught philosophy of science for many years. He earned a doctorate in mathematics at age 22. He was a member of the Vienna circle gathered about Wittgenstein for some years, but parted over basic differences. He was a full professor of philosophy, a full professor psychology, a graduate attorney, and a research assistant to Albert Einstein. I independently came to the same conclusions as Bergmann at a young age.

I believe in Modernized Bushido. Traditional Bushido believes in unconditional loyalty and obedience to one man or figure. I do not. My only loyalty is to a set of philosophical principles. If someone subscribes to those principles, I will support him. If he runs contrary to those principles, I will repudiate him.

For those who want to become involved in such a life, be prepared for a lifetime of study, introspection, and extrospection. It is a road less traveled. It is a road isolated from the beliefs of others. Don’t ask me for a simple explanation because I don’t have one for you.

As far as my relationship with objectivism, I believe Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead is one of the top psychotherapeutic books ever written, for those ready to read it. Not everyone is personally prepared to undergo psychotherapy. In the same way, not eveyone is prepared to read The Fountainhead. To the unprepared it’s a story, not a release.

ReDoug Bandler on Pickering

Pickering is one of those Washington insiders whose public record is less a matter of what he’s done than what he’s been: U.S. ambassador to Russia, Israel, El Salvador, Jordan, India, Nigeria and the United Nations. What such postings may obscure, however, is that the man is a foreign policy establishment leftist. It’s not just that Pickering serves as chairman of the board of trustees of the International Crisis Group, a George Soros group...

------------------------------

Pickering is only a minor part of the problem. For years elements in our government have been slipping in poisonous subversives such as Pickering into important key positions within our government. If you complain about it, you are belittled. "What? He has a highfaluten impressive sounding family name! He went to the top rated schools! He's well spoken. He spent years of his life dedicated to public service! Just look at the positions he's held! Now he's even full fledged Vicar of the Outhouse! And look at who has nominated him! The Secretary of State, for Christ sake! Who are you to question his background?" The left wing media will back him up. You're labeled an extremist and left standing there with egg on your face. It's a killer.

With that many positions and titles over the years, I suspect he's never held a serious job and is just another pretentious do-nothing craphead coasting through life on family name and position.

Yes, you are right

Doug Bandler's picture

Aren't you forgetting where you are?

Yes I know. But SOLO is such a minor phenomenon even in the O'ist movement. Mainstream O'ists don't really get any of this. But you are absolutely right. There are better Objectivists and the movement is maturing. I think that is what you represent; a move away from "Randroidism" and a move towards integrating philosophy and passion. Passion, something the Objectivist movement sorely lacks.

Best Commentary on Islam...

Doug Bandler's picture

...that I have read. HOLY FUCK. Great shit. I am posting some of Kocher's best paragraphs with my commentary.

------------------------------------

On a high level of abstraction and generality, there is little difference between the two movements beyond obsessional practice of religious ritual. Each has intent to establish a strong authoritarian state over a forcefully programmed/propagandized and completely submissive population. In considering the total situation beneath that level, there is concern over what the two movements would eventually do with each other. Islam is not going to give an inch at anything but having countries living under the dictates of sharia law. Will the left be prepared to accept that degree of religiosity? My suspicion is that the left is driven by such a substrate of hatred and hostility that it might find the opportunities for imposition of sadism inherent in islam are attractive and make its imposition acceptable. In addition, leftists seem to crave a sense of order and purpose in their lives that islam provides.

Wow! Someone else understands the similarities b/w Islam and Leftism. Kocher even sees that the Left must submit to Islam. I think he is right. The Left hates Christianity because it associates it with the denial of the equality it claims to worship. However the Left will embolden the most non-egalitarian idea system ever devised. Fucking hysterical. And it all makes sense if you understand Leftism. Their goal is to DESTROY not to build. That is the end road of egalitarianism. Rand got this. Most Objectivists don't.

----------------------------------------------

Breivik was essentially correct in his perception of the problem and attacking the training camp for the next generation of leaders in leftist destructive guerilla politics among the people to be weakened and conquered. Breivik is said to have “sacrificed his life” to free Europe from the “clutches of Islam, multiculturalism, and political correctness.” He killed some people who were attending what constituted a paramilitary training camp with 25 year olds who were more thoroughly trained in natural leadership positions, but were all falsely presented as early teenagers. What existed was a preparatory paramilitary operation with rank according to age, training, and leadership ability designed to produce the next generation of elite leftist intellectuals and cultural advocates of over-tolerant destructive multiculturism and political correctness instrumental to building a new socialist society from the ruins. However, while there was hysterical and shrill criticism of Breivik by those advocates of intellectual tolerance, in Scandinavia and also America, there was no inclination by those same indignant intellectuals to criticize the death or ruination their version of tolerance was producing in its encouragement of muslim immigration. Parts of Scandinavia, and indeed Europe, are becoming infected with no-entry zones marked by mosques lest people go in and get mauled by angry self-righteous muslims. People are being assassinated for insult tp islam or allah. By his actions against a camp that was the left wing and countercultural equivalent of a Hitler Youth elite training facility, Breivik may have intended to begin a movement representing or producing a modern Martel or Sobieske that would save Europe from invasion a third time.

Holy shit. Someone else understands Anders Breivik!! Breivik in a way was right. He knew that the Left was the enemy and he targeted young Leftists; the very source of the destruction of Europe. Breivik was not like the Columbine killers or Jared Lughtner or the Batman killer. All of those were sexually frustrated beta males frozen out of the sexual market. BREIVIK WAS FIGHTING A WAR AGAINST THE LEFT AND ISLAM. The dude got it. Not completely but in large portion.

---------------------------------------------------

What about the United States? The United States is behind Europe in its conquest by islam but struggling mightily to catch up. We’re at the stage where sporadic guerilla violence is popping up such as the islamic United States army psychiatrist who killed a number of his army cohorts, where there is a push to have sharia law for muslims that negates American law, and there is the occasional self-licensed rape of American women who it is argued deserve it by not conforming to islamic dress codes. The establishment of an islamic mosque near the site of 9/11 death and destruction is an exquisite exercise in deliberately provocatively defiant guerilla politics designed to produce repressed outrage. It’s a way of rubbing people’s face in what happened by people sympathetic to what happened. The act of instilling psychological repression is accidentally instrumental, or knowingly, operant to producing a depressed or numbed state to break the psychological back, and resistance, of a population. Protest demonstrations act similarly.

What a great way to describe sudden Jihad syndrome and Mosque construction: GUERILLA WARFARE. Brilliant. How many Objectivists understand this? Very few. Most of them still believe in allowing Muslim immigration which is suicide. After reading this, its hard to read any Objectivist blogger or commenter on the subject excepting Ed Cline. OBJECTIVISM IS DROWNING IN RATIONALISM. God our movement is pathetic. Its embarrassing.

------------------------------------------------------------

The United States is evolving into the equivalent of a Nazi concentration camp with the white European middle class forced into becoming compliant persecuted inmates. America is in various stages of this now with continuous deliberate provocation or bullying and deliberately repressed appropriate reactions to such provocation from which there is no appeal.

Again, more great shit. How many Objectivists understand this; that the white middle class is being DELIBERATELY destroyed and undermined. The US is in danger of becoming a mixed race Banana Republic with MASSIVE ANIMOSITY directed at whites. It will be far worse than South Africa. Do any Objectivists care?

------------------------------------------------

Mr. Kocher, I take back any of the bad things I said about you. You are not perfect but you get a very big part of the picture. I wish there were Objectivists that had your vision.

Well done sir.

I know and every sane person knows and yet for 11 years since 9/11 no one, not Republican or Democrat, has taken actions to destroy that regime.

Insanity.

Awesome summation of Islam

Doug Bandler's picture

Islam is the practice of perpetual indignation and furor. Anything that does not conform to islam is highly offensive to islam, to allah, and is subject to increasingly angry challenges or retribution which increases with immigration and increased demographic muscle. In practice such control and demanded adherence to submission and repression have been imposed wherever Islam achieves power.

Can someone please explain this to the ARI and the entire Objectivist community. This is a brilliant summation of that disgusting religion. Yet very few mainstream Objectivists would say this. Ed Hudgins wouldn't. Nor would Yaron Brook.

Some philosophical movement.

Re Pickering

Doug Bandler's picture

Diana West blogs on him here:

http://www.dianawest.net/Home/...

Pickering is one of those Washington insiders whose public record is less a matter of what he’s done than what he’s been: U.S. ambassador to Russia, Israel, El Salvador, Jordan, India, Nigeria and the United Nations. What such postings may obscure, however, is that the man is a foreign policy establishment leftist. It’s not just that Pickering serves as chairman of the board of trustees of the International Crisis Group, a George Soros group that, for example, advocated engagement with the Shariah-supremacist Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Pickering has personally explored opening relations with Hamas; pushed peace talks with the Taliban; argued for getting rid of, or removing to the U.S., all tactical nuclear weapons in Europe (and moving Russia’s to east of the Urals); and promoted bilateral talks with Iran without preconditions. And speaking of Iran, Pickering sits on the boards of two pro-Tehran groups, the American Iranian Council and the National Iranian American Council. The Iranian connections are additionally disturbing since one Benghazi scenario to be explored is whether Iran was involved, possibly in retribution for U.S. support of anti-Assad forces (including jihadists) in Syria.

Look at that resume. This man is Marxist filth. In a sane world, this man would be tried for treason let alone have the power and prestige he does. God, I hope Romney wins.

Constructing a favorable image of islam.

RLKocher's picture

11/2/12
An internet Blurb states the following:

Title: Benghazi Investigator Slams America, ‘Islamophobes’

America is a seething hotbed of “Islamophobia,” filled with ignorant racist rubes who irrationally fear the benign Muslim religion, according to the Obama administration’s lead investigator into the Benghazi atrocities.

So said former Ambassador Thomas R. Pickering in more polished, diplomatic language during an Oct. 23 panel discussion at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. The talk was on “what role the faith community can play in fighting Islamophobia,” a make-believe mental illness that Islamists would love to have listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Radical Islam’s stateside defenders frequently accuse anti-terrorism hawks of “McCarthyism,” hurling the epithet “Islamophobe” the same way American leftists use the word “racist” to shut down debate.

Pickering’s pontifications came two and a half weeks after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton named him to head a State Department “Accountability Review Board” tasked with examining the circumstances surrounding the deaths on Sept. 11, 2012, the 11th anniversary of 9/11, of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, information management officer Sean Smith, and security personnel Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods at the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

-------------------------------------

So there you have it. Two presidents a Secretary of state, and an Ambassador
declare mistrust of islam to be a form of mental illness and Romney doesn't dispute the characterization. The question is, how many people will believe it. They are hearing nothing else from authority figures.

Haha!

For those who have felt uncomfortable or think they have seen congregations feeling guilty or uncomfortable during a sermon, invite me in as a guest pastor to give a sermon, and I’ll show you what discomforting truth is. On a good day I can have congregations and clergy alike scrambling out windows and doors in terror over having heard unadorned reality.

To the extent one feels self-licensed to condemn the existence of poverty in this world, one also has the duty to solidly condemn those systems that recurrently produce it. To the extent one feels self-licensed to criticize the existence of poverty in this world, one also has a duty to endorse those systems that have done the most to offer opportunity to escape from it. To the extent one feels self-licensed to condemn the existence of poverty in this world, one also has the duty to condemn the concrete behavior that produces or contributes to it. What I see instead is cathartic expression without integrity: The moral condition of those who work is determined not by their own disciplined efforts, but is deteriorated by the state of those who don’t. 

 

I really love that paragraph!  I cheered when reading it!

It would be great if you posted all of your works here sir!

As an aside...

just to clarify something regarding Robert L. Kocher. He is not a christian. He wrote this article a while back titled "My Quarrel with Religion in America."

That summary is KASS!

As is the post Robert!

It is indeed refreshing to see a rational mind outside of objectivist circles with such clarity of thought  pointing a shining light at all the dark shadows most people are either unwilling or too blind to discern for themselves.

Mr Kocher ...

... has got so much right—and brilliantly right—it would be churlish to carp about what I consider wrong.

This is a magnificent and relentlessly just excoriation of Airhead America and its repulsive idols and icons, including many of my own regular targets such as MBAs, PhDs, the child-molesters of the mind in our education system, cretinous celebrities, slick blandifiers, vapid women (Kocher's delicious and entirely accurate vitriol against Hillary Clinton should on its own receive a literary prize), Islamofilth, political correctness, appeasement, Ronroids, infantilism ... and the mindless, narcissistic catatonia that decades of Gramscification, Deweyfication, Alinskification and general crapification have induced.

In particular, I cheered to the point of hoarseness at this (bold mine):

In an atmosphere of unconditional toleration there is a national crusade against anger or hatred including reasonable anger. Our system of law is increasingly reluctant to recognize justified anger. We now labor under a new concept of law called hate crimes. Liberal churches admonish members to hate the sin, but love the sinner. Presumably if someone comes to slit you or your family’s throat for profit, amusement, or as a commandment of their religion, your only allowable reaction should be to suck your thumb while trying to look at the person doing it with love and understanding to be in compliance with church sermons. The nice thing about repression of anger and hate crimes is that only certain groups of people to which suppression or repression applies. Meanwhile, irrational anger and outrage among selected designated groups is deemed understandable or permissible and we are constantly admonished understand their reasons for it. Thus, there is no conceptual balance in application of the category. One or certain groups are licensed or relieved of accountability while the others are compelled to swallow constant criticism and repression. It’s licensed psychological tyranny. One group is assigned the forced inferior and adaptive role of being a psychological and physical target of convenience while the other is licensed to employ behavior requiring repressive adaptation to the first group at will. The United States is evolving into the equivalent of a Nazi concentration camp with the white European middle class forced into becoming compliant persecuted inmates. America is in various stages of this now with continuous deliberate provocation or bullying and deliberately repressed appropriate reactions to such provocation from which there is no appeal.

This is so correct, and so important. It's what I roared about in "In Praise of Objectivist Rage," a polemic against the foul influence of the anti-anger psychobabslers within Objectivism. I cannot seem to get it to register with anyone. Thank Gobby there are people outside Objectivism, at least, who understand that the insidious effect of Californian kumbaya-ism is: the disarmament of the good guys. The key word in the above passage is "compliant." America is waltzing willingly into the gas chambers,

I am interested to learn more about Virgil Goode, whom Kocher favours with his support. I note that Goode's namesake right here, more aptly known in rationally fastidious circles as Baade, jumped immediately on the bandwagon, which is of concern.

This is a bracing antidote to the robotic recitations of Objectivist dogma by rote-merchants of the Binswanger variety on subjects like immigration. It is a salutary reminder that we must conduct our project in the world as it is, and that capitulation to savages is no less disastrous for being perpetrated on doctrinaire grounds.

McGovern & Altruism

Doug Bandler's picture

Interesting discussion of McGovern. So, he was the son of a minister. So was another famous Progressive: John Dewey. Thus we see the Christian Left at play and how they paved the way for the secular Left that now dominates. But I suspect that Kant's Categorical Imperative is what is really driving the altruism of the Left. A universal duty to all of mankind that must be performed without "inclination" for it to be fully moral. As Ayn Rand said, its even worse than Christianity.

McGovern was a consistent altruist who was born at the turn of the century. McGovern type Leftists now dominate the Democratic Party. Actually today's Leftists are even worse. But I do think McGovern was a demarcation point. With him, old liberalism was dead and the New Left was born and it is on verge of total domination.

But some Objectivists are fearful of a New American Christian theocracy. Sigh.

on the subject of sex and culture

Doug Bandler's picture

Freedom must be applied wisely by sentient human beings who are concerned with basic sane standards of prudence and concern about a future beyond an immediate impulse centered immediate present. If it is not done, the ultimate consequence becomes severe social oppression and licensed psychopathology.

I agree with your observation about the infantilization of America. I would add that it has also been feminized which is an even worse thing. But your writing on this subject shows where you depart from Objectivism. The problems that you cite are all caused by welfare-statism. Remove the welfare state and the playboy/playgirl elements of America couldn't do political damage. Now you say this:

On a molecular level, what people do to each other in the absence of morality, ethics, integrity, sentient emotional and psychological honesty, coupled with an indifference to consideration of foreseeability can produce conditions just as oppressive and intolerable as those occurring as the result of government excesses.

True, but an Objectivist would tell you not to confuse the political with the cultural. It does seem like you want to go down the road of the regulation of culture which is true Conservatism. The Objectivist argument is that just uphold individual rights by preventing initiatory force and the culture will be self-regulating and peaceful and non-self-liquidating.

You'll disagree I'm sure as does Larry Auster as would any serious Conservative. I subscribe to that view *but* not with 100% confidence. I consider the laissez-faire philosophy, both economic and cultural, to be a noble but nevertheless untested hypothesis. I want to see it tested. But I do wonder if human biology and psychology will invalidate the liberty premise and Classical Liberalism / Objectivism. If it does, then I really don't know what the fuck is the ideal system of government.

Re Immigration

Doug Bandler's picture

I just read the immigration section and it is timed perfectly with my post on this subject. What Mr. Kocher has done here is make the Human Bio-Diversity argument, ie racialism, without ever using the terms "Black" or "African". No easy task. But his argument is an important one that NO ONE in the Objectivist movement even acknowledges.

Look, evolution was local. And Europeans have a certain biology that has GREATLY contributed to our successful culture. Africans do not have the same capabilities AT THE POPULATION LEVEL as Europeans. Immigration of third world immigrants from Africa, from the Muslim world, from the non-Euros of South and Central America does present problems for Euro-American society as we have seen and as Mr. Kocher describes.

Now Objectivists can answer this by saying that all these problems of welfare state dependence and crime are the product of government intervention. OK. Maybe. But what if even under the laissez faire blacks are still at the bottom of the economic totem pole? Will they remain a source of cultural disruption? They are just that now and anyone who denies it is an idiot or dishonest. Low IQ Africans and Hispanics present a constant source of crime and anti-West hostility. Plus they are being used by the Left to advance the Left's totalitarian agenda. Notice BTW that the Left uses primarily Blacks and women, two groups that have very little to no allegiance to the liberties the West has developed. (Yes, I know Ayn Rand was a woman.) I don't know if this can be solely based on the Left though. Biology may be the root cause and that means that certain demographics will ALWAYS be at the bottom.

Muslims are another issue. Because of the inherent belligerence of Islam, it should be banned and Muslims deported. But their presence in America and in Europe is perhaps the biggest threat the Euro-American world faces. Yet Muslim immigration continues to EXPAND.
That idiot and traitor President Bush, yeah he was almost as bad as the ObaMarx, increased Muslim immigration so that 25% of all Muslims that are now in America CAME AFTER 9/11. That is suicide.

Look, Mr. Kocher is not an Objectivist and his epistemology is flawed but the man is smart and he is wrestling with extremely important cultural issues that NO OBJECTIVIST HAS THE GUTS TO TOUCH. Objectivism needs its own version of Mr. Kocher or Larry Auster. Yaron Brook is not the answer. Nor is Biddle or Binswanger or any of them.

Immigration puts different races with different biological predispositions in the same polity. The question is this: is it possible to have a mixed race citizenry in a limited government republic without having internal inter-group violence (as is now the case) and without destroying the fabric of that society. Mr. Kocher and Auster would both say no in their own way. I am undecided and want to believe in laissez-faire as the solution. But I am not sure and NO OBJECTIVIST HAS MADE THE CASE FOR A MULTIRACIAL SOCIETY.

Understand, there is no example in history to draw from. Europe's great civilizations were all destroyed when they experimented with multi-racialism. It is painful to admit that maybe the Objectivist / Classical Liberal politics is wrong and that human volition does not mandate the protection of individual rights. Maybe, group abilities trump individual considerations. I don't want that to be true but I won't rule it out. Especially when I see what is going on with African, Muslim, non-Iberian Hispanic and South East Asian immigrants in America and Europe. As I keep saying, I don't live my life in fear of physical danger from white people only from non-whites. That means something.

Mr. Kocher, I disagree with your positive philosophy the way I disagree with Larry Auster's. But let it be known, you are a smart and well read man. And this is serious shit that you are addressing. Objectivism has not produced a cultural commentator at your level or Mr. Auster's level yet. I am saddened by this.

Mr. Kocher...

is a man of many insights who has a website titled The Analytic Papers. Not the easiest site to navigate but there is some great stuff if you search through his articles. He was originally a psychiatrist. He wrote a series called Politics in America, among others, which I've posted from time to time on Solo. His writing is, as you can see, prolific.
