July 19, 2014, 2:41 pmYou must listen to this...


This is truly beautiful. What is wonderful about this is that people will walk past an older person as though they don't exist, and I am sure that many, as have I, have had that happen countless times. I sometimes think that in the eyes of the young, we become invisible as we age, especially in these days of all-absorbing portable technology that so entrances the young!

This wonderful older gentleman made them stop and pay attention; and they did!

And please turn up your sound. WAY UP

July 18, 2014, 7:58 pmRace Baiters...

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his life trying to bring the races in America together. His dream was that all of God's children�black and white, Jew and Gentile�would stop focusing on race and religion and start focusing on character and merit. Little did he know that some of his own followers as well as other political opportunists would pervert his dream by becoming race hustlers. Race hustling involves purposefully stirring up racial tension in ways that create opportunities that can be exploited for personal gain. Race hustling is an equal opportunity concept in that it is practiced by unworthy people of all races but especially, black and white liberals. What all race hustlers have in common, whether they are black or white, is that nobody benefits from their nefarious shenanigans but them.

When people hear the term "race hustling," most immediately think of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and their ilk; as well they should. Both of these so-called reverends are consummate practitioners of the concept. However, there are many lesser known race hustlers�black and white�whose only interest in racial harmony is in how to prevent it. The Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons of the world have turned America's racial divide into a thriving industry that has fattened their wallets and kept them in the limelight for decades. Race hustlers like Jackson and Sharpton fear just one thing above all else: society's realization of Dr. King's dream. Fortunately for America, but unfortunately for race hustlers like Jackson and Sharpton, their industry is doomed. The days of race hustlers are numbered.

For readers who find this claim hard to believe, stay with me for a few more lines. My prognostication is more than wishful thinking. There are several socio-cultural phenomena that are going to render Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and their ilk irrelevant. In this column I will present just one of them: the rapid growth of successful, conservative, educated, articulate black Americans who abhor the tactics of race hustling, reject government dependence, and believe in opportunity, hard work, and entrepreneurship. They also love America and endorse American exceptionalism.

To Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Barack Obama, these conservative black American's represent the supreme threat. Writing in the April 7, 2014 issue of The Washington Times, Dr. Ben Carson commented: "The most dangerous people to the modern manipulators are people who have freed themselves from the plantation mentality." Dr. Carson is talking about black Americans who race hustlers�Carson calls them "manipulators"�like to call traitors, Uncle Toms, and other less complimentary pejoratives.

The reason President Obama, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the NAACP, and other proponents of race hustling are so vociferous in their unrelenting attacks on successful, conservative black Americans can be summarized in one word: desperation. If successful conservative black Americans such as Thomas Sowell, Ben Carson, Walter Williams, and Allen West are right�and they are�Barack Obama, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton are wrong. Worse yet, if conservative black Americans are right, it becomes apparent to members of the larger black community that they have been misled by race hustlers�black and white�who have lined their pockets, won political power, and stayed in office by exploiting poor blacks; people who�truth be told�they care nothing about. The day is not far off when poor black Americans are going to look at successful black Americans and ask themselves: "How did they do it?" Further, they are going to look at themselves and realize that government dependence is a sham perpetrated by false do-gooders who really don't care about them.

Dr. Carson had this to say about race hustlers:"In today's culture, there are political forces that see the descendants of slaves as useful objects for maintaining their positions of wealth and power. By promising to care for their every need, they create dependency. Frightening those dependents into thinking that they will be abandoned if others are in control, they create loyalty that is undeserved but fierce�loyalty that translates into the real goal: votes. Anyone or anything that threatens this paradigm of victim and protector must be destroyed, lest the victims recognize the deceitfulness of their manipulators and revolt."

It is counterintuitive to thinking people of all stripes to hear liberals�black and white�label black Americans as racists, turncoats, and traitors who have abandoned the black community simply because they believe in opportunity, self-sufficiency, entrepreneurship, and personal responsibility. This is a message that is becoming harder and harder to sell. The time is coming when people of all races are going to stop automatically accepting the condescending messages fed to them by liberals�black and white�who are interested in their votes but not in their true welfare. Barack Obama, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and their ilk better make hay while the sun shines because the day of race hustlers is coming to an end. The day is coming when poor blacks in America are going to stand up in the middle of a Jesse Jackson speech, an Al Sharpton diatribe, or a Barack Obama lecture and say: "That dog won't hunt."

It may be difficult for readers to accept that the days of race hustler are numbered, but they are. Just as the Jim Crow days in the old South were based on a lie�the lie of racial inferiority�the current race hustling days are based on a lie: white guilt coupled with black entitlement. No concept based on a lie can endure forever. The truth is a stubborn phenomenon. It is often slow to reveal itself, but eventually and inevitably it does. It always does. When it does, those who have exploited blacks and whites for personal gain will be exposed for what they are: uncaring opportunists who transformed Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dream into a nightmare. Next time you become frustrated by the irresponsible antics of Jackson, Sharpton, et.al., just remember this: As bad as nightmares can be, we eventually wake up. So will America.

July 16, 2014, 9:40 pmMore Reid stupidity...

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Thursday that, if House Republicans would pass comprehensive immigration reform, the economy would add more jobs.

Reid made the comments after a June jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics found the economy added 288,000 jobs last month. Reid said that number would have been better if the Senate's immigration reform bill had become law.

"Comprehensive immigration reform would have added an average of 121,000 more jobs per year over the next 10 years," Reid said. "Unfortunately, House Republicans, under the influence of the Tea Party, refused to bring it up for a vote. Their refusal is costing our economy added growth that we need."

The Senate passed a bipartisan immigration reform bill last year, but Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has said he would not bring any immigration reform legislation to the House floor this year.

"Over a year ago, the Senate passed bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform. The Senate's legislation would have reduced the deficit by $200 billion over the next 10 years, more than all waiting House bills combined," Reid said. "Now it is time for my Republican colleagues to step up, help the middle class and pass these important measures."

President Obama said Boehner's refusal to move legislation would

July 16, 2014, 1:29 pmObama wants chaos...

According to D'Souza, President Obama wants the chaos to unfold as it is so he can exploit the guilt and compassion of the American people and force his immigration agenda on Republicans in congress.

"Why is this happening now? D'Souza said. "You can't say its because there's poverty and need around the world because there's been poverty and need around the world since the Babylonians."

D'Souza continued: 

Why is this occurring now are there revolutions swirling across Central America that are coughing up refugees? No. Nothing has changed over there. What has changed is over here. The Obama administration for the past six years has been signaling that it's not serious bout enforcing the immigration laws. That it doesn't particularly care to police the border very tightly and moreover that it wants amnesty at home so law breakers that are in this country get a break. So those messages eventually filter to people in other countries.

When Kelly then asked why the President would want this strategy, D'Souza pointed to the radical philosophy of Saul Alinsky as the answer: 

The American middle class is fundamentally innocent and decent and you can always exploit the natural goodness of the American middle class for political ends. So, if you produce women and children, sick, starving in desperate need at the border, it's very difficult for the ordinary American good will to turn those people back, 'sorry we're not going to help you out.'

So, just by preying on the goodness of the American people Obama's able to force the hand on the immigration issue and put the Republicans on the defensive and say 'listen, either you give me amnesty or I'm going to let these people come across the border and theres nothing you can do about it.'

July 14, 2014, 7:46 pmObama and Dems...

Democrats in tough reelection races have a blunt message for President Obama: Keep away.

Obama's approval ratings are in the basement and show no signs of improving, so Democrats are keeping their distance. On the stump, in campaign ads and at fundraisers, Obama's absence is increasingly conspicuous.

Democrats are voicing their displeasure with his policies and campaign advisers are telling candidates to avoid being photographed with him, so as to deny Republicans effective visuals for campaign ads.

"It's a no-brainer," said one operative who works for a senator up for reelection in 2014. "The second term has been a bit of a disaster, his approval ratings are the lowest of his presidency and Washington is in disarray."

Many of the Democratic senators elected in 2008 rode to office on Obama's coattails. Six years later, they're asking, "Barack who?"

July 13, 2014, 12:48 amNDIC eliminated by Obama,,

Obama eliminated the NDIC, Agency that monitored terrorism, drugs on border.
7/12/2014, 7:08:23 PM � by mgist � 43 replies
Judicial Watch ^ | 2014 | Judicial Watch
Obama quietly eliminated the NATIONAL DRUG INTELLIGENCE CENTER, that was monitoring terrorist activity on the border. Mexican cartel violence is at an all-time high along the increasingly porous southern border yet the Obama Administration has shut down a critical intelligence agency dedicated to identifying, tracking and severing the nexus between drug trafficking and terrorism. It's a senseless move, which is why it was done very quietly. The only real way to discover that the Justice Department's 19-year-old National Drug Intelligence Center (NDIC) has been closed is by trying to visit its website. It simply says that on June 15, 2012,...

July 10, 2014, 10:15 pmAmnesty and Black America..

This article originally appeared in National Review

One of the sleeper issues surrounding the debate on amnesty for illegal immigrants � an inconvenient one that no proponent of a widespread amnesty wishes to acknowledge � is the devastating effect so-called immigration reform will have on African Americans.

The black unemployment rate is almost 11 percent, far higher than that of any other group profiled by labor statistics. African Americans are disproportionately employed in lower-skilled jobs � the very same jobs immigrants take. As Steven Camarota asked in a recent column, why double immigration when so many people already aren't working?

Who will be harmed most by amnesty? African-Americans.

Is This Man Delusional?

by Keith Koffler on July 9, 2014, 6:36 pm

There's a third-world style humanitarian crisis on our border. Terrorists have established their own state, a Caliphate, no less. Israel is on the cusp of war with the Palestinians. The economy cratered the first quarter of the year. And here is your president, joshing today in Denver after a night of billiards and pizza.

July 8, 2014, 11:49 amPalin - Impeach Obama...

President Obama's rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here. It's not going to get better, and in fact irreparable harm can be done in this lame-duck term as he continues to make up his own laws as he goes along, and, mark my words, will next meddle in the U.S. Court System with appointments that will forever change the basic interpretation of our Constitution's role in protecting our rights.

It's time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.

The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored. If after all this he's not impeachable, then no one is.

July 8, 2014, 11:47 amTuberculosis in camps...

More than 7,000 children have been processed through the two camps, according to a BCFS official. They allege that only 119 children have been treated for lice, 22 for scabies, and one for the H1N1 Flu. BCFS says the most common illnesses seen at Lackland are fever, headache, upper respiratory cold and ingrown toenails.

However, at least a half dozen anonymous sources, including nurses and health care providers who worked at Lackland, allege that the government is covering up what they believe to be a very serious health threat.

Several of my sources tell me that tuberculosis has become a dangerous issue at both the border and the camps.

"The amount of tuberculosis is astonishing," one health care provider told me. "The nurses are telling us the kids are really sick. The tuberculosis is definitely there."

July 7, 2014, 10:26 pmWhat are they hiding?

Health and Human Services officials will allow reporters to visit a military facility housing some of the immigrant children who have arrived at the southern border in recent weeks, but only if the media promises not to record anything, not to ask any questions during the tour, and not to talk to any of the staff members or children.

"This violates the First Amendment," Representative Jim Bridenstine (R., Okla.), who represents the congressional district containing the housing facility at Fort Sill, said of the HHS invitation to the media.  "This is not transparent. HHS is trying to muzzle the media and hide the human tragedy that has resulted directly from the administration's failure to enforce the law."
