"If at age 20 you are a conservative then you have no heart. If at age 30 you are a liberal then you have no brains."
Sir Winston Churchill

Obama obviously knows very little about economics, specifically that "Society stagnates when independent productive achievers begin to be socially demonized and even punished for their accomplishments." This dilemma fogs Obama's reality. To him, accepting this truth is a "false choice", his answer to things he doesn't understand. And by the way... where is John Galt?

Revealed: what happened to Ambassador Stevens' body

April 27, 2013


It was revealed for the first time today that the body of murdered Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was recovered by a secret two man Special "Ops" team that was not affiliated with any of the other security entities involved in the Benghazi attack.

This team, acting under their own initiative and armed with their own weapons, undertook this mission despite very little intelligence available for this exceedingly hostile and volatile environment. The information came to light this morning on WVOX’s Vernuccio/Allison radio show.

The previously undisclosed information was provided by former Army Ranger Jack Murphy who is the co-author along with Brandon Webb of Benghazi: The Definitive Report.

“If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.”
― James Madison, The Federalist Papers #51

Last week on the day after the Boston marathon massacre the Congress failed to pass any of the gun control bills then before it. Those on the PC left went into an orgy of denunciation with threats of future political annihilation for all those who voted against the various measures that began with an assault weapons ban and a limitation on the capacity of ammunition magazines and ended with enhanced registration.

The NY Daily News in particular was in a state of inchoate rage over this vote, devoting much ink to a denunciation of all those who voted no on the basis that they did not care about the slaughtered innocents of Sandy Hook or their grieving families. On Saturday the paper’s letters to the editor led with a banner that read “The Second Amendment must go” and began with a letter that said in part:

Edmund Burke once famously said “That the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good [people] men do nothing”

I would add two corollaries to this. The first is that the only things necessary are also “ that good people not believe that evil exists” and the second is “that good people not hear the truth.”

We have seen evil at work once again in Boston on April 15th at the Boston Marathon as yet more Americans died or were maimed and wounded at the hands of terrorists bent on carnage for the sake of God knows what. While reasonable people recognized this evil for what it was, far too many politicians saw only crass political opportunity. It did not take long for the leadership of the Democratic party to blame the attack on the sequester or the fact it was “Tax Day“. Nor did it deter “progressive” leftists such as David Sirota to openly hope on Salon.com that the bomber is a white American, because otherwise the Obama agenda re immigration, defense reductions and leaving Afghanistan would be jeopardized and Muslims might be victimized whereas white people, who have priveledge… never are. At MSNBC Chris Matthews yearned that the terror was done by right wing extremists. Barney Frank yelped that this proves that tax cuts should be discarded. The blood was not even cleansed from Boylston Street when these disgusting and inappropriate things were said or written.

For the falsely named “progressive” left ( their progress is our subjugation by the state ) there is no such thing as evil unless it can be used in a negative context with white or black conservatives, religion, traditional marriage, the right to life, the constitution, the flag, the military, gun ownership, limited government, low taxes or the belief that parents and not the state have hegemony over their children. Their sense of evil is divorced from everything decent and linked only to their toxic ideology.

The Iron Lady is Gone

MARGARET THATCHER Margaret Thatcher Source: Wikimedia Commons

Margaret Thatcher died this week. She was 87 and was the first and only female Prime Minister of the UK. She also served her country as PM longer than any other in history. In the course of her three terms she brought Great Britain back from the precipice of a socialist hell and made it the fourth largest economy in the world by returning to free market economics. In the course of her tenure in office, she helped President Ronald Reagan to bring down communism in Russia and eastern Europe. She “denationalized” ( her preferred term) British Telecom, British Gas, British Airways, and Rolls Royce among others. She fought a war with Argentina and was a major partner with President Bush in liberating Kuwait from Saddam Hussein reminding him along the way ‘not to go all wobbly“. The Soviets called her the “Iron Lady” and she wore that appellation with pride. The unions hated her guts but she never let their vile vitriol deter her from what she believed was right. She did all of this with elegance and grace while skewering her opponents in the House of Commons like a master fencer who could use either the foil or the saber. She became Lady Thatcher after she left No. 10 Downing Street but then she was always a lady in the best sense of the word. We shall not see her likes again. Good show Maggie!

G.K.Chesterton once wrote about journalism …”Journalism consists largely in saying “Lord James is dead” to people who never knew Lord James was alive”

This is just another way of saying that the real proof of bad journalism is when you personally know the topic or the subject better than the journalists do causing their not so hidden bias to actually become the bigger story.

We had another classic example of this on Tuesday when two reporters from the Daily News wrote a hit piece about the new Chair of the Bronx Republican Party who in the name of full disclosure has been a friend for 20 years and is someone who once worked for me. They never had any fundamental questions of him such as what were his goals and mission for the party but instead concentrated on personal events in his life which in some instances were 30 years old in origin and over and done with… and they even got some of that information wrong.

The bottom line is that much of the press has become a vassal of either the Democratic Party or the in the case of the Bronx the sleaze that passes for elected or party officials from all parties who owe no loyalty to anyone but themselves. They are the me, my, mine party and preside unencumbered by any values, loyalty, or sense of public trust.

Shakespeare would have described the political scandals in NY as follows:
Now is the winter of our discontent
made worse by the wicked deeds of the tribunes of the people!

New York politics and in particular NYC politics is once again on display as the epicenter of corruption and the ground zero for greed. Bill Hammond of the Daily News reported on Thursday that “The city has 43% of the state’s population but 73% of it’s crooked state officeholders”. He further stated that ” 24 of the 33 state politicians caught in the corruption eruption over the past decade live in the five boroughs” On Friday the numbers increased to 26 and 35.

While all of the seven arrested officials are entitled to the presumption of innocence until proven guilty… these current debacles are yet the latest examples that our politics are sick and getting sicker.
