Lucrezia: revealing dress

What is Affirmative Action?

Posted October 28, 2013 9:19 PM ET; Last updated October 30, 2013 2:30 PM ET
Affirmative action, diversity and other race based programs were dreamed up by Harvard University Law School professors. Their idea was to compensate black Americans collectively whose ancestors were abused by the American institution of slavery. It did not address victims of slavery by Egyptians, Sudanese, Nigerians, Saudi Arabia, China, India, Mexico and other numerous countries which practiced and practice it.

But who benefits from this controversial government mandate? Wealthy upper class elite black people (I mean white people with dark complexion), some of who never suffered under slavery and whose ancestors did not live in the United States. Barack Obama is one of them. He was picked up in his teens and sent to prestigious private schools, moved to Columbia University and then to Harvard Law School. His father was a white man with dark complexion from Kenya. His mother was a white woman with white complexion. He was elected to a state senate position in Illinois by employing character assassination. He got elected to the US Senate the same way, by slandering his opponent. He is a political thug who is now President of the United States elected twice.

His Attorney General is another man who is white with dark complexion (as the Danvers, Massachusetts police describe black people). Eric Holder's parents are from Barbados. He is a graduate of Columbia University and Columbia Law School, which practices and promotes the same misguided race based programs as Harvard Law School.

So what is affirmative action if not a beneficent program to help deserving poor black people (I mean white people with dark complexion), who suffered from discrimination based on their race, who are held back due to historical racist abuses? It is an elitist government program which punishes white people who have a white complexion for doing no wrong. It is an elitist government program which divides Americans based on race. It assists the admitted KGB program of dividing Americans against themselves by any means. Some say the program of diversity, the latest name for the same form of affirmative action, is meant to enrich lives of deprived persons, to diversify the population of universities and employment.

If that was so, it would include not only upper class elitist black (I mean white people with dark complexion), women and homosexuals. It would include older persons, and persons with disabilities who are no less upper class and elitist. But the ruling class still treats people with disabilities as if they are all morons and delusional. Harvard University leads the way segregating its population by able bodied and young, separating older persons and persons with disabilities. Even those who are working for the police or the FBI abusing others. One example from my life is how the FBI used me to fight organized crime for 15 years, after I was drugged and unable to function. The FBI and police employed the United States government and all of its police power to abuse a white man with white complexion who was unable to function, for the benefit of FBI agents and police who conducted that 15-year extreme criminal abuse.

No white people with white complexion are alive who practiced slavery in the United States. The government program, affirmative action, now diversity, rewards white people with dark complexion who suffered no harm under slavery. It is not a requirement that a person's ancestors suffered, only that a person is white with dark complexion.

So people who are white with dark complexion come to the United States and demand privileges meant for others. And guilt ridden white people with white complexion grant them. White people with white complexion are so fearful of being called a racist that they will do anything not to feel ashamed and guilty. I overcame those fears after being called a racist for 34 years by crime families and the FBI, to discredit me. It was also after 15 years of being abused by the FBI saying about me, "He's a black, homosexual, Jew from New York." and using me to fight organized crime for 15 years without compensation.

That was after government psychiatrists drugged me for 80 consecutive days without consent contrary to law using hallucinogens because they thought I was a spy. So I have an idea about some of the egregious misguided abuses of calling people racists. It shows that people who call white people with white complexion racists, have no rational arguments. Some do not like what white people with white complexion say. Some people just do not like white people with white complexion. It is a method of censoring and discrediting people who are disliked, like saying in Cambridge, Massachusetts or on any university campus, "He's a right wing Republican."

In October, 2013, a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed Chinese American Communist allegedly working at Boston University appeared in my life. He is the latest partner of a dedicated young lesbian who works with numerous crime families, police agencies and leftist Communist groups to harass me, to humiliate me, to insult me, to provoke me, tampering with my computer, and disturbing my sleep every day. He says about me, "He's a black (that is white with dark complexion) Communist homosexual." He brings to a complete circle the racist appellations attributed to me over the past 43 years. When I wrote about this new effort to change my complexion one more time, he said, "You just committed suicide." Hello? Is that the kind of people I need around me? He caused my computer to crash about 15 times (felonies under US Code) in one hour earlier in the day.

There are enough Harvard University graduate students, campus police, city police criminals and FBI informants filled with hatred of white people and older people who torment me each day. I do not need any more. I'm told that a highly intelligent graduate of Columbia University who spent two hours telling me about his extensive knowledge of international affairs, wants to kill me. See. I do not need more kinds of harassment. I have enough.

What difference does it make? Homosexual or breeder? White with dark or white complexion? From New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Arizona or what? And religion and ethnicity too? For the past 43 years each of the nine crime families, the FBI and Communist groups had their own elements of character assassination. It was always directed at discrediting me and diminishing me, destroying my career, my reputation, my social, political and economic support systems. After 43 years it was all destroyed. But the harassment and character assassination continue.

The lesbian is descended from upper class parents in India. She says she is a graduate student psychologist at Harvard University's Medical School. Like others at Harvard University she ignores inconvenient laws. Conducting behavior conditioning, treatment without consent is no problem for the upper class elitists who run the state government in Massachusetts. She is not the first Harvard University psychologist to conduct lawless programs. She is only the latest. When I did waste time complaining to state agencies and police about violations of state and US laws, state police officers called me to threaten me if I did not stop complaining. It was more efficient to just ignore the crimes against me. Police and the courts are only used against me. They do not stop police criminals who harass me.

Over the years I was black (I mean white with dark complexion) then white with white complexion, and now white with dark complexion again. On each occasion the opposite complexioned persons would conduct racially motivated criminal abuse. I was first a black person attacked by white racists. Then I was a white racist attacked by black racists. Now this Chinese man desires that I again become a black Communist (dog in the code language of spies and crime families) to be attacked by white racists. 

At Harvard University their campus police harassed me saying "He's a communist." for many years. They were joined by Cambridge city employees and police who threatened men regularly. Then after saying "He's a Communist." they changed to "He's in organized crime." and harassed me for that also. Again they wish to change their story and attack me again for being a Communist. All this while the $3 billion funded human services industrial complex (phrase created by MA State Rep. Marie Parente) and the public safety agencies stand by, watch and laugh at the criminal abuse of a 70-year-old white man with white complexion. Or on occasion a volunteer psychiatrist, social worker, or psychologist appears to conduct treatment without consent. No one makes any effort to stop the abuse. They want to "help" the victim who is mentally ill. How charming and thoughtful of them. How brave.

What I found shocking is that there is a very large number of people who mindlessly believe what they are told by police, FBI and Communist thugs. It is not saying much about the education levels of humans in the United States. As Winston Churchill said, "The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter."

Two aphorisms apply. George Bernard Shaw: "The road to hell is paved with good intentions." and my favorite, pre-Homeric philosopher, Cleobulous: "The chief source of evil among men is excessive good." In the name of helping poor people to overcome irrational barriers, racism, we harm innocent persons, and reward undeserving persons. This pattern creates animosity between the very groups which are the target of ending animosity.

But there is also a personal element to this which had a small effect on my life. I grew up poor, even though my parents are from the predator oppressor European nations that dominate ethnicity of the United States in some jurisdictions. My mother came from a peasant Jewish family in Poland. She arrived in Ellis Island when she was five. Her father came earlier recognizing the coming Holocaust. He found gold in the streets of America by opening a retail shoe store. He earned money to bring his wife and two children after him.

My mother married an alcoholic man from Maryland. When I was five he suffered a severe brain injury in an industrial accident. For the next 20 years he was paralyzed on his left side from brain damage. He often did not recognize me when he passed me in the street.

I began college with a partial scholarship and worked. I was always working beginning when I was 13. I was in and out of college and served in the US Navy during the Vietnam War. I did not see combat.

After the Navy, I worked as a computer systems programmer in New York City for one of the best consulting firms in the country. Our clients included IBM, American Airlines, the City of New York, and the Social Security Administration. I know a little about large computer systems. I was an expert debugger. Finding errors in computer programs was my specialty. I was part of a two-man team integrating IBM's Time Sharing System, which was like what UNIX is today for the internet.

After I obtained my degree I went to law school. I paid my tuition and living expenses from my savings from my computer work. After three months of law school I was running out of money. I went to the Dean and explained that I needed money to complete my year at school. He said to me, and this was before affirmative action was institutionalized in the country, "If you were black or Hispanic, I could give you money. But you are not and I can't."

At law school I saw children of wealthy and powerful parents who were getting money from the school. But because I was poor and white, I was not eligible for grants. It was my first experience of being discriminated against because of my race. It was not the last.

The day after I posted this essay I returned a book to the Cambridge public library. A black man I never saw before was behind desk and I explained I wanted a refund because I was not satisfied with the book I was returning. I reminded the man of the guarantee by the library of satisfaction guaranteed or double your money back. It is a joke I tell, like it or not. He smiled and I went on my way to the City Public Works department to turn in some hazardous material I found on the street near a Harvard University residential building. One student threw out trash and left it on the street in a box with other items. This is how I make work for myself. It was not my problem, but knowing that all kinds of people walk the streets of Cambridge I decided to prevent a potential dangerous use of this hazardous material and took it home expecting to bring it to the DPW. That was about three months ago. The DPW allows two days per week for three and one half hours for returning recyclable items. Again a black man was in charge. He told me I needed to wait for the next day which will be posted online and go to the other end of the city. I realized how dedicated one must be to dispose of materials appropriately. It takes a lot of time and effort. And it wasn't even my material.

Nonetheless I went to the grocery store next, and did not find what I wanted. Later I went to another library. As I went out of my residence building, I saw a young man who lives in the basement with his wife and baby, standing in the lobby. I've seen him and his wife a few times before and greeted each of them. He told me he locked himself out. I was perplexed at what to do. He needed to call the landlord, the President and Fellows of Harvard College, who has the key. I also wondered why he did not just go in the other entrance as he usually does. I've seen him and his wife do that regularly, as well as previous tenants. In fact the tenants of that apartment are seldom seen in the front of the building.

As I  left, I held the locked door open so he could enter the building. Because it makes a loud noise I closed the door by hand, so as not to annoy the neighbors who live near the door. As he waited for the elevator he took out his university ID and showed it to me. I said "No. I'm holding the door because it makes noise." He is from Africa and was showing me that he is a student not a burglar. I felt badly that he did that because I knew him. But it also may be one of those tests that Harvard University and their PC comrades do. Especially to me after the crime families and the FBI said about me "He's a racist." for 34 years in order to isolate me and to discredit me as part of a 43 year political character assassination campaign. But none of the persons who are in and around Harvard University and Cambridge are aware of that. And if I tell them they don't believe it. 

They say "You're a liar." So I'm used to living with that. But they can't say that I did not tell them. One local Democratic politician often said that to me. He also said, "I own you." One more example of the above mentioned aphorism. He is a lawyer. It is what lawyers (and spies) do, i.e., discredit others, while they promote their arguments, their propaganda. In courts a lawyer can ask a witness if he lied about an event previously. If so the lawyer implies to the trier of fact that this man's testimony cannot be believed due to his "propensity" to lie. But in this case the lawyer simply says "You're liar." which suggests "You always lie." It is like the logical problem about the truth telling indians. One generation always lies, and the next one always tells the truth. But he does not say "You lied about that event." He simply says "You are a liar." which means whatever you say is a lie. Character assassination, personal attack.

Nonetheless later at the second library, a Harvard University campus cop, was there to watch me in case of extreme white racism. It also indicates the misguided priorities of police in Cambridge and at Harvard University. They send out psychiatrists contrary to law for evaluations for alleged instances of bias. That is also an example of extreme abuses in the name of good. In Cambridge they attempt to enforce thought crimes. They force new employees to take a test explaining what they think about others who are different from them. The city refused to comply with an order from the state supervisor of public records to reveal those questions. It is Big Brother at work in Cambridge government and all employees who remain, accept that.
Those are some of my experiences as a poor white man being treated worse than illegal aliens and worse than wealthy children of upper class elite black persons and being slandered as I am abused.  In case you missed it a young black New York student on work study purchased a $349 belt and whines about racism. Also a young black New York woman purchased a $2500 purse and whines along with him.

World View Gap Widens Among Americans

If people saw themselves as Americans instead of political Americans, would these findings change? Hello? How many polls are meaningless? What geniuses make up the questions? This poll conducted treating Americans as members of a collective, not as individuals. It is one more effort dividing Americans against each other assisting the KGB's main mission in America. It is not as if they need any more help. From the President down through the federal, state and local bureaucracies, Democrats are relentless dividing Americans by race, class, age, gender, sexual preference, and citizenship status. Destroying individualism and individual rights is almost complete.

Hillary Clinton Shows Her Bigotry Toward Vulnerable Persons

[From article]
Hillary Clinton has questioned the mental health of Cristina Kirchner and asked US diplomats to investigate whether the Argentinian president is taking medication to help her "calm down".
The US secretary of state painted Kirchner as a volatile and emotional leader who suffered from "nerves and anxiety", according to a secret cable sent to the US embassy in Buenos Aires.
[. . .]
In a section headed "mental state and health" she asked how the first lady-turned president was managing "her nerves and anxiety" in a blunt tone which suggested US concerns.
"How does stress affect her behaviour toward advisers and/or her decision-making? What steps does Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner or her advisers/handlers take in helping her deal with stress? Is she taking any medications?
"Under what circumstances is she best able to handle stresses? How do Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner's emotions affect her decision-making and how does she calm down when distressed?"

This is evidence of the negative stereotyping that Hillary Clinton places on a psychiatric diagnosis. It indicates that in spite of her claim to be compassionate and sensitive to vulnerable persons she is a mean-spirited bigot toward persons with disabilities. In addition it is established US law that medical records are private. It appears that Hillary Clinton took up the standards employed by Barack Obama in his election campaigns. He used personal matters to defame an opponent. But this is also an attack on all persons with disabilities. It shows how shameless this alleged Democratic candidate is and to what length she will go to obtain her ends, just like Obama. For Clinton persons with disabilities must know their place i.e., to be satisfied getting treatment from experts approved by the upper class elite.

The Clueless President

[From article]
This weekend, we learned that President Obama "didn't know about" NSA spying on world leaders, especially German Chancellor Angela Merkel. He also "didn't know about" the posthumously obvious problems with the rollout of the ObamaCare website exchanges.
[. . .]

President Obama was also completely unaware that the IRS was subjecting conservative organizations to undue scrutiny on their tax-exempt applications.
[. . .]

President Obama also, presumably, was unaware of the Justice Department's program to allow Mexican drug gangs to purchase military-grade arms from the US.
[. . .]

President Obama also, apparently, didn't know that his spy agencies were monitoring millions of phone calls and cataloguing billions of web visits and data transfers. He, it is reported, didn't know that these same agencies were also recording phone calls in foreign countries.
President Obama also didn't know that his diplomatic mission in Libya had requested more security and felt threatened by rising tension in the war-torn country.
[. . .]

Comparing Barack Obama to Chauncey Gardiner is an insult to the iconic Peter Sellers character. At least he was honest about what he didn't know.

White World War II Vet Murdered By Four Black Teens

[From article]
A beloved World War II veteran and pillar of his local community was brutally killed in a violent mugging by four teenagers on his driveway.

King for the day: Lawrence E. 'Shine' Thornton was known in the Delta region for his award-winning Maria's Famous Hot Tamales, which he began cooking in 1984, named after his wife, Mary.

Terrance Morgan, above, and Edward Johnson, below, both 19, were charged with murder, robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.

Leslie Litt, above, and Geblonski Murray, below, both 18, were arrested last Monday with two others for the violent death of Lawrence E. 'Shine' Thornton of Greenville.

These four teens, who the Danvers, Massachusetts Police would say are white with dark complexions, are charged with murdering a white with white complexion World War II veteran. Is Obama, Eric Holder, "Comrade" Chris Matthews, Al "FBI" Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Tom Perez doing a great job dividing Americans based on race, class and ethnicity or what?

White U. Delaware Students Celebrate By Marching, Yelling, Treated As Violent Offenders, Black Student Violence Ignored

[From article]
Last year, for the second year on a row, a black promoter sponsored a party for students from black colleges in the area. By 2 a.m. 800 black people were outside, many fighting. Guns were fired, cars damaged. Three hundred state police responded. A spokesman for the state police said not one of their officers at the scene noticed if the entire crowd was black. Pictures at Facebook and other social media answered that question.[. . .]
Included in the Delaware 10 was a co-ed accused of disorderly conduct and jaywalking. In Delaware, they call that “walking along roadway where sidewalks are provided.”

Misguided Psychiatric Boondoggle Rolls Along Taking Innocent Lives While Greedy Drug Dealing Psychiatrists Get Rich

[From article]
Mr. Chappell, a schizophrenic with a violent criminal record,
[. . .]
Mr. Chappell had stopped getting his antipsychotic injections
[. . .]
The arrests began in the summer of 2003 when Mr. Chappell, then 19, was charged with armed robbery and assault. The victim was a homeless man with $96 in his pocket. Mr. Chappell accosted the man twice, slashing his forehead the first time and then punching him in the eye, causing an injury that required surgery, according to court records. The charges were dismissed.
Mr. Chappell’s record also includes drug and alcohol charges; he was apparently drinking and smoking marijuana
[. . .]
he was also arrested several more times on assault charges, which were ultimately dismissed.
[. . .]
Dr. Marie H. Hobart, medical director of Community Healthlink in Worcester, said “In the past, D.M.H. would recognize that this is a person with schizophrenia, a condition that is ongoing and not something that can be cured.”
[. . .]
after his fifth arrest on assault charges resulted in a conviction.
That arrest occurred in November 2006 after Mr. Chappell’s stepfather, who had raised him and occasionally hired him to work construction, dismissed him from a job. Mr. Chappell, using “an unknown hard object,” responded by fracturing three bones in his stepfather’s left eye socket, a police report said. When officers arrived, the stepfather was “holding his head with a cloth and had blood running from his mouth.”
In 2007, Mr. Chappell, sentenced to a year in jail but required to serve only three months,
[. . .]
Over all, the risk of violence from people with mental disorders is considered low. But studies have shown that it can be elevated by various factors apparent in Mr. Chappell’s profile — delusions and hallucinations, a lack of treatment or failure to take medication, abuse of alcohol or drugs. The strongest predictor of violence by a mentally ill person is believed to be past violence.
[. . .]
“If providers want to leave a house unstaffed or single-staffed, they can — and they do,” said Toby Fisher, a senior field policy specialist for the Service Employees International Union, which represents many of the state’s mental health workers.
[. . .]
“The overwhelming majority of consumers are not more dangerous than the general population, although there is a very small group that does cause concern,” said Dr. Kenneth Appelbaum, a co-chairman of the task force. “How to go about addressing safety concerns without adding stigma is a challenge.”

Rising to address the panel, Laurie Martinelli, the executive director of the National Alliance on Mental Illness in Massachusetts, said the issue raised by Ms. Moulton’s case — and by the subsequent killing of a homeless shelter employee — was not whether people with mental illness were violent.
“The elephant in the room is the state mental health budget,” she said. “Did the murders have something to do with funding cutbacks?”

Maybe the murders have to do with eliminating the line between crime and psychiatry. Instead of increasing the client base for the drug dealing psychiatrists and their drug corporate mentors why not separate criminals from troubled law abiding persons? Currently all persons accused of mental illness are treated as if they are violent criminals and lose their Second Amendment rights. Nice.

Congressional Reform Act of 2013

*Congressional Reform Act of 2013*

1. No Tenure / No Pension.

A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they're out of office.

2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.

All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 12/31/13. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.

Congressmen/women made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.


Problems With Health Care Law Greater Than Imagined

[From article]
The most pertinent query came from Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who asked the contractors to put on paper, and under oath, exactly how much money they had made from the federal government so far, and exactly how much they stand to make now, as they fix the sites, and in the future.
There are more questions on the failure to launch. Did Mrs. Sebelius and her top staffers know that the system was not ready and likely to fail? If they knew, did they not tell the White House? If they didn't know, how did it happen that they didn't? If the White House knew of the likelihood of a coming failure, why did they go full steam ahead? And if they didn't know, why?
Was there some degree of fabulism, or magical thinking, or reliance on blind luck within the White House and the greater administration?

Misguided Censorship by Police and Journalists

Here is the latest method of denial by police officials who join journalists in covering up any indication that black people are violent, or are capable of committing a crime. This young man with a white mother and a black father is designated white. Police, journalists and their limousine liberal propaganda mentors expect ordinary civilians to believe that black people, or white persons with dark complexions have had their genes cleansed of violence, hatred, aggression and misguided anger. These evolved humans are better than white people with white complexions, because the whiter white people are violent, hateful, racist and randomly aggressive, angry, bitter clingers. Once again the nation of thoughtless maroons (the Idiocracy), have Barack Obama and his acolytes, Tom Perez, Eric Holder, "Comrade" (consigliere of the Kennedy Cult) Chris Matthews, Al "FBI" Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to thank for continuing their efforts to divide Americans by race, class and ethnicity. Good job. One race of people are indeed better than another. The white ones with the dark complexions are the latest incarnation of perfection in the US.

The teenage soccer star even brought a spare set of clothes into class so he could change and dump his bloodstained outfit to avoid detection when he made his trip to a local cinema and Wendy's restaurant.
He was caught on security camera at the Hollywood Hits movie theater soon after 4pm on Tuesday wearing a clean sweat suit. Police found his discarded clothes and the box cutter knife used in the attack hidden in woods near Danvers High School and now have them as evidence.
Sources have revealed Chism has been 'completely co-operative' with the investigation, telling officers every detail of how he killed Ritzer, but he is refusing to give any reason why he attacked the beloved maths teacher.
He has apparently remained 'stone cold', showing very little emotion.

Senior Housing Not Best For Diversity

Eliminating low income senior citizens from Cambridge will make a more diverse city, and eliminate the need to segregate them from the youthful beautiful people. Universities in Cambridge increase the size of their student bodies, without increasing their housing units. As Harvard grows it increases the likelihood of creating a dysfunctional bureaucracy. It was a clever method devised by Harvard College, Harvard Law School, and MA Governor William Weld, and Harvard Law School's Charles Fried using a statewide vote to eliminate a city ordinance.

Comments from JFK's Favorite Brightest Man

At a dinner of intelligent men and women, John F. Kennedy said, "This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House with the exception of when Thomas
Jefferson dined alone . . . . !!"

This is what Thomas Jefferson said in 1802 . . . . :
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous, to our liberties, than standing armies . . . .
If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency . . . . first by inflation, then by deflation . . . . The banks and the corporations that will grow up around them . . . . will deprive the people of all property . . . . until their children wake-up homeless, on the continent that their fathers conquered . . . . !!"

More quotes from Thomas Jefferson . . . .
"The strongest reason for the people to retain the Right . . . ."To keep and bear arms" . . . . Is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government . . . . !!"
-- Thomas Jefferson

"No free man shall ever be barred from the use of arms . . . . !!"
-- Thomas Jefferson

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time . . . . with the blood of patriots as well as tyrants . . . . !!"
-- Thomas Jefferson

"My reading of history, convinces me, that . . . . most bad government, results from too much government . . . . !!"
-- Thomas Jefferson

"I predict future happiness for Americans, if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people, under the pretense of taking care of them . . . . !!"
-- Thomas Jefferson

"To compel a man to subsidize, with his taxes, the propagation of ideas, which he disbelieves and abhors . . . . is sinful and tyrannical . . . . !!"
-- Thomas Jefferson

"The democracy will cease to exist, when . . . . you take away from those who are willing to work, and give to those who would not . . . . !!"
-- Thomas Jefferson

"It is incumbent on every generation, to pay its own debts as it goes . . . . A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world . . . . !!"
-- Thomas Jefferson

"When we get piled upon one another, in large cities, as in Europe . . . . we shall become as corrupt as Europe . . . . !!"

Allen West On Potential Race War in US

[From article]
Are we on the verge of war? I hope not, but just this past week in Brooklyn a white couple was attacked, dragged from their car and beaten by a black mob. The fatal beating of 86-year old World War II veteran Delbert Benton in Spokane, Washington by two black males was inexcusable. Just two days ago in the greater Boston area, a 24-year-old white female teacher was brutally killed by a 14-year-old black male. Earlier this year, in my home state of Georgia, two teenage black males shot a baby in the face, after shooting the mother.

Health Care Law Created Severe Doctor Shortages

[From article]
Even before the ACA's launch in 2013, many physicians—seeing the changes in their profession that lay ahead—had begun talking their children out of going to medical school. After the launch, compensation fell, while nothing in the ACA stopped lawsuits and malpractice premiums from rising. Doctors must now see many more patients each day to meet expenses, all while dealing with the mountains of paperwork mandated by the health-care law.

Lenin Began Destruction of Family With Women's Rights and Abortion

[From article]
Lenin specifically targeted marriage and family in his effort to build a "New Soviet Man."
[. . .]
What they had in mind was something far more radical: An all-out war on "old and outdated" institutions like marriage and family so dominance of the state could be achieved. Instead of marriage, there would be more disposable "unions of affection and comradeship."
The first salvo in the "liberation" of the family was easy divorce, established almost immediately by the Bolsheviks. Abortion on demand — until then illegal in every country in the world — came in 1920.

[From  article]
Governor Palin's candidacy for the vice presidency was what galvanized grass roots Republicans in a way that John McCain never did. But there was something about her that turned even some conservative intellectuals against her and provoked visceral anger and hatred from liberal intellectuals.
Perhaps the best way to try to understand these reactions is to recall what Eleanor Roosevelt said when she first saw Whittaker Chambers, who had accused Alger Hiss of being a spy for the Soviet Union. Upon seeing the slouching, overweight and disheveled Chambers, she said, "He's not one of us."

Misguided Politicians Ignore Already Begun Race War

[From article]

Initial skirmishes in that race war have already begun, and have in fact been going on for some years. But public officials pretend that it is not happening, and the mainstream media seldom publish it at all, except in ways that conceal what is really taking place.
For American society, a dangerous polarization has set in. Signs of this polarization over the years include opposite reactions between blacks and whites to verdicts in the O.J. Simpson murder case, the "rape" charges against Duke University students, and trials resulting from the beating of Rodney King and the death of Trayvon Martin.
More dangerous than these highly publicized episodes over the years are innumerable organized and unprovoked physical attacks on whites by young black gangs in shopping malls, on beaches and in other public places all across the country today.

Ignoring Racist Violence Will Lead To A Race War

[From article]

Social dynamite can accumulate among whites as well as among blacks. White extremist hate groups already exist, though they are a fringe, as the Nazis were once a disdained fringe in Germany. It was the people's loss of confidence in the respectable institutions of society that gave the Nazis their chance for power.
The blind and dishonest political correctness of our media and educational institutions on racial issues today can eventually forfeit the confidence of Americans and give similar extremist groups their chance to ignite a race war in the United States. And once a race war starts, it can be virtually impossible to stop.

Parents Charged With Homicide of Infant By Adding Heroin To Baby's Food

No one was watching these thoughtful parents, who took time from their busy schedules to buy drugs, in order to get their baby addicted to drugs. No police, no crime families, no Harvard University campus police, no Communists, and no FBI informants. But in academic Cambridge MA on property owned and operated by the President and Fellows of Harvard College, all of the above police agencies and criminal enterprises take turns harassing a 70-year-old white man who the FBI used to fight organized crime for 15 years, and did not pay him. Instead he survived 22 years of retaliation by the same crime families under direction of the FBI and Harvard University officials. Each day one or another of these charming sociopaths disturb the man's sleep, ridicule, insult, humiliate and provoke him. The $3 billion dollar taxpayer funded human services, and public safety industrial establishment stands by and allows this criminal abuse to continue. Black racist police employees, man-hating feminists and heterosexual hating homosexuals join in the abuse of this elder male who they all say is disabled. What are the best practices priorities promoted by the intelligentsia of Harvard University, the city, state and US agencies who control the Massachusetts government mechanisms? Does Harvard University teach and encourage abusing vulnerable citizens?

Black Teens Attack White Couple In Brooklyn, NY

Here's another incident where the victims of black racist crime denies it was racial. It is the same with the way government officials deny that Muslims are attacking US Citizens, Christians and Jews. It is no way to fight a war, or to stop racial violence.

[From article]
“Most racial violence and black on white crime does not come gift wrapped with lots of perpetrators yelling racial insults in front of witnesses on crowded streets,” Starkes said. “Whatever anyone says about poverty, housing, schools, crime, whatever, this much is true: There is a tremendous amount of racial animosity behind the epic levels of black on white violence. Behind the completely disproportionate level of black mob violence.”
“That makes these neighborhoods much more dangerous than they appear. The newspapers won’t tell you that. Or they pretend it is not important. But it keeps happening, and they keep wondering why. But they simply will not look at the racist attitudes behind the violence. Unless of course, the attacker is white.”

Same Sex Marriage Creates Misguided Priorities Among Judges

[From article]
Begin with the steadfast refusal of same-sex marriage advocates even to define what "marriage" is now supposed to mean. As the authors of What Is Marriage? have tirelessly argued, marriage has had a consistent core meaning, essentially the same rationally defensible one, in every human civilization. Those who reject that meaning haven't offered an intellectually coherent new meaning for the word. Is marriage now simply an affective/sentimental/romantic/sexual relationship of two persons who wish to share their lives together? Then what limiting principle demands that it be sexual, and not affective in other non-sexual ways? Or that marriage be exclusive, with a requirement of fidelity to one's spouse? Or that it be permanent-or even that its dissolution be governed by any standards other than the will of the parties? Or that the relation be limited to two persons, or that it rule out the union of close blood-family members? 

Same-sex marriage advocates have offered no serious answers to any of these questions-or, at least, none that do not crumble under the slightest analytical pressure. Rather than say what marriage is-which anyone can see is an absolute prerequisite to saying whether "equality" demands its availability to partners never before thought capable of marrying-these advocates simply shout "marriage equality" ever more loudly, point to an array of "government benefits" linked to marital status, and make their desire for the thing substitute for an argument about what the thing is that they want.

Economic Mobility Thrives in Utah

[From article]
To be fair, correlation is not causation. It's always possible that other factors besides the Salt Lake City metro region's strong families and strong civic institutions explain its comparative advantage in economic mobility. The study also found that strong schools and high levels of economic integration-with more poor families living in mixed-income communities-were also correlated at the community level with higher levels of income mobility for children. These findings are consistent with the progressive notion that liberal institutions and values play a central role in fostering the American dream for the nation's poorest children. They also may help explain why more secular, progressive metro regions like Boston and Seattle ranked highly in the study, too.

"Popeye" turned the strategic pass into a bog – and appalled the international community. In 1977, the Enmod (Environmental Modification Convention) treaty outlawed weather warfare.

Democrats Creating Great Backlash for Future

[From article]
Indeed, comprehensive immigration reform is the most illiberal legislation in a generation: it favors Latin American nationals over others entirely on the basis that they have already broken federal immigration laws, are residing here illegally, and share the same ethnic background as their leaders in the Democratic Party.
It hurts the lower classes, many of them minorities, who compete with cheap labor of foreign nationals. It burdens state budgets that must allot hundreds of billions in entitlement costs to allow rough parity to the vast majority who arrive from Mexico and Latin American illegally, without a high school diploma and without English.
It will ensure Democratic majorities in the American Southwest for a generation and turn Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, and perhaps Texas into something akin to the politics of California. The bill is ethnocentric, championed by corporate elites and ethnic chauvinists, and central to Democratic Party strategy.

[From article]
According to court papers filed by federal prosecutors in San Diego, Francis and others in his company targeted Navy personnel serving in Asia and plied them with prostitutes, cash, luxury hotel rooms, plane tickets and, on one occasion last year, tickets to a Lady Gaga concert in Thailand.
In exchange, Francis sought inside information on ship deployments and pressed at least one high-ranking commander to steer aircraft carriers and other vessels to ports where his firm could easily overcharge the Navy for pierside services, the court documents allege.

In exchange for prostitutes, travel and other favors, federal authorities allege, Misiewicz provided Francis with classified information about ship movements and steered vessels to specific Asian ports.

EU and US Government In Power Grab

[From article]
So the democratically elected government of a sovereign state was to be summoned, in effect, before the unelected, unaccountable European Commission to prove its case for a change in its own country’s welfare policy. Yes, indeed — the growing power of centralised government over local populations is going to be the big fight of the age. And it’s coming to an arena near you.

State Department Covered Up Sex Scandals, Promoted Offenders

So government officials who are accused of misconduct are given promotions or no punishment. But for 43 years police, crime families, Communists and FBI informants conduct a brutal campaign of character assassination, punishment for allegations with no opportunity to defend myself, no notice and no defense. Nice way to run a government. Power to the powerful?

US Rep. Seeks Facst About What FBI Knew About Tsarnaev Brothers

[From article]
Grassley also asks why FBI agents were conducting surveillance in Cambridge’s Central Square on April 18, hours before authorities say the brothers ambushed and murdered Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus cop Sean Collier in his cruiser.
In a statement yesterday, the FBI, Boston Police and Massachusetts State Police denied having a bead on the Tsarnaevs before their desperate and deadly attempt to flee.
“Members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force did not know their identities until shortly after Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s death, when they fingerprinted his corpse,” the statement reads, adding that the Cambridge surveillance pertained to “a matter unrelated to the Tsarnaev brothers.”
