The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by a resistance to every kind of improvement. They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty. They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship. They call themselves revolutionaries, but they want to make the government omnipotent. They promise the blessings of the Garden of Eden, but they plan to transform the world into a gigantic post office. Every man but one a subordinate clerk in a bureau.House of Eratosthenes
delivering their scapegoats for prosecution and trial. It isn’t really necessary to name names, when one is referring to a whole political class, of progressive Democrats (and the occasional progressive Republican for variety) who create and keep the underclass in their places, cultivating their envies and resentments, and then directing them for use as voting fodder.

Although he has U.S. citizenship, there is virtually nothing about Barack Obama which is authentically American in the traditional sense of the word.
In other words, we can state that, de jure, Obama is an American – but de facto, he is not. The carefully-sculpted public relations narrative and political propaganda which propelled him into office mentioned neither Obama’s radical roots nor those of his associates – but they are unquestionably there, as figures such as Bill Ayers, Saul Alinsky and Frank Marshall Davis prove. In the same vein, the tactics of the administration – i.e., using racial grievances as a weapon of mass destruction – are straight out of the playbook of communist agitation and propaganda.

shaping the story in different ways than another writer would, even after witnessing the same events. The transaction between the writer and reader consists of an implicit trust that the writer will deliver a reasonable facsimile of people and events as they appeared when the reporter saw them. Mitchell, it turns out, did not always think of nonfiction that way, particularly when it came to his character’s actual existence.

Whites and others who aren’t black are expected to feel guilt for acts they did not even commit.
Inherited anger and/or guilt for acts in which one did not even participate is obviously a logical fallacy, but that doesn’t seem to matter to the race-hustlers and their enablers. Over the last half-century, the nation has spent billions in taxpayer funds on redressing racial grievances and blacks – as a demographic cohort – have been the beneficiaries of a vast menu of privileges and special programs available to no one else. None of this seems to have mattered – race-relations are at an very low ebb, and militant blacks are angrier than ever. The New Roots « The Thinking Housewife
and to treat them as free men treat slaves of a foreign empire with an alien religion, which is with contempt and pity, rather than with awe, respect, and fear. The absurdslaves of a dying empire, eager to flagellate themselves and their fellows for public entertainment, can do nothing independently worth fearing. They ask to be broken, they ask to leave no traces to history, so work to break them and then erase them. About the Corporate Slave Class - Henry Dampier
In the past, Republicans have coalesced around such obvious joke candidates as businessman Herman Cain,
whose main achievements involved management stints at two of the nation’s most grotesque fast-food chains (Burger King and Godfather’s Pizza), and Alan Keyes, whose resume includes a brief stint as a Reagan appointee to the reviled-by-conservatives United Nations, hosting an ironically titled MSNBC show (Alan Keyes Is Making Sense), and a historic loss to one Barack Obama in the 2004 Illinois Senate race. That Cain and Keyes are black is no accident. While the GOP struggles to crack double digits in terms of votes from African Americans, the party’s overwhelmingly white membership seems to have an unending appetite for high-profile, successful black men whose very presence on a debate stage softens charges of hostility and indifference to issues about race.

It’s when you are in a line praying there is still toilet paper, or bread or a job left for you at the end;
it is when you are on your knees before al-Qaeda begging them to reduce the ransom from $2 to $1.85 million because that’s all your house, car, jewelry and life savings are worth. It is when your arms are raised in rapturous hope at the coming of Obama, Warren, Sanders — or Hillary. That’s the last vision of heaven you will see as you rush to one side of the boat. Chesterton was right. When people stopped believing in God they didn’t believe in nothing, they started believing in anything. Run To the Left | Belmont Club
1980–2014: John du Pont After just a decade’s absence from the sales room, the One-Cent Magenta again appeared at a Siegel auction, 5 April 1980. As an investment, the stamp proved successful: it was sold to an anonymous bidder for $935,000. The buyer was in the room, but had left bidding instructions with the auctioneer prior to the sale, so he was able to watch the auction without drawing attention to himself.
Although the owner of the stamp was there identified by the pseudonym Rae Mader, it was shortly revealed the owner was actually John du Pont, heir to the eponymous chemical company fortune, eccentric amateur sportsman, and omnivorous collector. Du Pont exhibited the stamp for the last time at CUP-PEX 87 in Perth. The One-Cent was returned from Australia on a Sunday, when there was no access to the bank vault that usually housed the stamp. And on that night—but only that one night— du Pont slept with the stamp under his pillow.The British Guiana 1-Cent Magenta Stamp | Sotheby's
I predict that as blacks in other cities “learn” from Baltimore’s example of laid-back riot “control,” the events there will be reproduced elsewhere, with similar demographic and economic consequences. I predict that racialist mouthpieces, starting with Al Sharpton, will blame the further deterioration in majority-black urban neighborhoods on “white greed.” And I predict that the national media, to the extent that they deign to cover those phenomena at all, will rationalize the violence as “to be expected” and deplore the flight of whites to safer, less racially mixed regions as “racist.” Who would like to bet against me?Liberty's Torch: A Quiet Riot
These scenes are narrated by the same old voices saying the same old things. To spice it up, they interview a local, who mumbles through the interview, confirming everything you see on TV. This, of course, is the simple reality of places like Baltimore, Detroit, East St. Louis and so on. When the government banned private discrimination in in the 1960’s, whites fled the cities to avoid having to send their kids to school with blacks. Responsible and intelligent blacks tried to keep it together, but they threw in the towel in the 80’s and 90’s when crack turned American cities into war zones. They headed for the suburbs to live with the whites. What’s left in these urban reservations are low-IQ violent nitwits.
Not all Makers produce tangible products. The humblest counter girl at a fast-food restaurant facilitates the provision of an objective good -food - to those who would purchase it. That gives her a claim on the title of Maker quite as valid as any farmhand or factory worker.Takers are persons unable or unwilling to produce or serve others.
They're sustained by the production of Makers; without Makers' largesse, they would perish. Not all Takers are willfully so; there are millions of persons unable through no fault of their own to support themselves by productive effort. But the great majority of Takers are not of that blameless sort.Fakers are those who pose as Makers but who are quite as parasitical as the willful worst of the Takers.
Politicians and their hangers-on are Fakers. As Sir Fred Hoyle wrote in The Black Cloud, we treat them as important because the newspapers say they are, whether explicitly or implicitly. Yet theyâre as helpless to sustain their lives by productive effort as any Taker. Liberty's Torch: What Will Follow

And I truly wish you had the courage to change. If you ever do, send up a flare. Until then, there is nothing anyone can do for you. You are victims of your own choices, and no one can make choices for you but you. As far as the good people of Baltimore trapped by the terrible voting of your fellow citizens, I suggest you buy more guns until you can move to a city not run by those who see rioting aspart of the Master Plan.

For example, police do not have many interactions with rural Amish little old ladies. We know why; rural Amish little old ladies are not running drugs, robbing liquor stores and gunning one another down. Young African-American males commit nearly half the violent crime in America. That is the root cause of Ferguson, Baltimore and the rest of this Tour of Destruction Across America sponsored by the NAACP, MSNBC-Comcast, and the Obama administration.

The room was equipped with cookies, coloring books, bubbles, Play-Doh, calming music, pillows, blankets and a video of frolicking puppies, as well as students and staff members trained to deal with trauma. Emma Hall, a junior, rape survivor and “sexual assault peer educator” who helped set up the room and worked in it during the debate, estimates that a couple of dozen people used it. At one point she went to the lecture hall—it was packed—but after a while, she had to return to the safe space. “I was feeling bombarded by a lot of viewpoints that really go against my dearly and closely held beliefs,” Ms. Hall said.

no matter what she says in earshot of her masters to show what a spirited, hard-working, self-abnegating little slave she is.

The basic concept, Tran said, is that sound waves are also “pressure waves, and they displace some of the oxygen” as they travel through the air. Oxygen, we all recall from high school chemistry, fuels fire. At a certain frequency, the sound waves “separate the oxygen [in the fire] from the fuel. The pressure wave is going back and forth, and that agitates where the air is. That specific space is enough to keep the fire from reigniting.”
While I'm aware that it's a little strange this would be the first thing to cross my mind, surely this same effect could be weaponized, used to thin the air of oxygen and cause targeted asphyxiation wherever these robot swarms are sent next. After all, even something as simple as an over-loud bass line in your car can physically collapse your lungs: "One man was driving when he experienced a pneumothorax, characterised by breathlessness and chest pain," the BBC reported back in 2004. "Doctors linked it to a 1,000 watt 'bass box' fitted to his car to boost the power of his stereo."
What’s important for the right is to recognize itself as such, and to also see that its interests are harmed rather than served by compromise and cooperation with the progressives who have every intention of destroying their opponents, physically or otherwise, as soon as they have the will and means to do so.How Progressives Purge Corporate Cultures - Social Matter
charting the course of civilizations, driving generations of men and women to fundamentally misappraise their fellow human beings, fighting against the very arc of the moral universe and frustrating its bend towards justice. To them, as I’ve argued here and elsewhere, these concepts have a massive explanatory power, are the keys to understanding great swaths of human history. And so anyone who allies themselves with hatred or bigotry (or racism or homophobia or misogyny or whatever the flavor du jour is) is obviously in league with the powers and principalities that hold sway over our vale of tears. And anyone who belongs to one of the designated victim groups that these powers wage their eternal war against are just that: victims. They are the underdogs, despite the testimony of your senses. They are the bullied, damn your lying eyes. And thus they are sacrosanct under the no-punching-down commandment. Punching Down and Liberal Cosmology - Social Matter
