Sanctuary Catch 22

Ever been in a fight you know you shouldn’t have picked?

Welcome to California.

Before I go any further, let me restate that which we already know to be true…  Leftists HATE STATES RIGHTS.

Okay.  Now we can start.

In a widely publicized, made for TV, moment the Mayor of Oakland warned illegal aliens, undocumented workers, potential Democrat voters, criminal trespassers, whatever you want to call them, the ICE was going to conduct a drag net in the hopes of capturing and securing some of the genuinely criminal, felonious, lawbreaking saints that escaped their country of origin to enter America illegally and turn it into the place they had to get out of.

That was a watershed moment. Why?  Because it allowed the Feds to do what California never intended to do.  It allowed the Feds to Sue.  “So what” you ask?  Well, the Liberals in California LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Federal power over the states to make you do what they want while providing you no escape from their terrific ideas.  In other words, they don’t want you skipping off to another state thereby avoiding the super cool soda tax they installed over your protests because your fat… and they know better than you what you need.  Fatty.

Well, this suit by the Feds will provide a little case-law Constitutional  re-enforcement once settled.


Let’s think about this for a moment.

If California wins, which is what the useful idiots think is good news, then it is a win for States Rights… uh oh… once they realize this they… will… not… be… happy.

If California loses, which is the end of the world as it is perceived by the useful, it will be a victory for the Federal Government (Which they Like), but it will be in the area of immigration enforcement (Which they Don’t Like).

I believe the Administration has been waiting the last year for exactly this event to present itself.

It is a Win-Win for Trump and frankly every citizen in the United States, nationalized or natural-born.

It is a Lose-Lose for Socialists because it either places new, and needed, power behind the States being able to resist Federal Authority, or it re-enforces the Federal Authority to enforce Immigration over the protest of the State and Local Municipalities.

It’s a Catch-22.  (For the publically educated out there, look it up.  Then read the book.)

This is fun to watch… and explains the mixed messages we are getting out of California right now.  The truly Sinister Leftists who see where this is going are desperately trying to get out in front of it, but they have the genuinely useful like the Mayor of Oakland who refuses to read the page let alone get on it.  This will be Epic Spin.

I will enjoy seeing what the Cali-Socialists decide is the best tactic here.  Frankly, they should drop their protests and admit their wrong so they can save the bigger hammer, that being Federal Power over the States which they love so much.

The question is how would their useful constituency take such a move?

Having Fun Yet?


Raise the Voting Age to 21!

It’s long overdue… and You Know It!

The Damage to this Democratic Republic caused by ill informed Voters due to a lack of life experience combined with public education has led to the deaths of millions.  With irresponsible Wars to Economic conditions leading to surges in alcoholism, drug abuse and ultimately suicides, it’s time American Citizens take a Stand!

Join us in SCREAMING,


I Challenge all 57 States to do what the bought and paid for D.C. Politicians will not do.  While we have waited patiently the powerhouse K Street Voter Registration Lobbyists have stuffed the pockets of our elected officials with illegitimate and ill educated voters.  21 TIMES UP!

We are going to Put a Stop to the Madness!

The Founders could never have anticipated the caliber of individuals running for elected office in the 21 Century.  There is no way they could have foreseen the complicated issues surrounding our communities like FUnemployment, 27 Genders and counting, The Poor with last years Cell Phone and only Basic Cable.

The is no time to waste.

Please, for the Safety of Women, the Various other Genders and the Children under 26, RAISE THE VOTING AGE TO TWENTY ONE!

Call your local State Representative and DEMAND the Voting Age be Raised to 21!

For the life of me I cannot understand why Movie attendance and the Ratings of Award Shows is dropping… aside from the force feeding of political correctness, pious posturing and poisonous politics, what’s not to love?

The Motion Pictures are just THAT GOOD.

The Default State of economics…

Many years and countless hours of studying Socialist countries has presented me with two absolute and demonstrable facts.
First, Socialism never works no matter how much your local Socialist wants or wishes it too.  Or for that matter, tells themselves it does.
Second, Free Market Capitalism is the default state of economics.

Without fail, once established and entrenched, a socialized economy gives birth to a separate and “unequal” system of trade.

A system of trade that is not controlled by the state. It has many names such a black, grey, underground and illegal… but those in charge never call it “free” which is exactly what it is.  (In Russia there was a simple rule everyone lived by… if you see a line get in it.  They knew that whatever was at the other end, whether they wanted it or not, could be traded for something they did want.)

The Socialists have attempted every imaginable idea to stop Capitalism in its tracks but  have succeeded only in slowing it down and creating distortions which they then blame on the very free market they distorted.

They stare dumbfounded at a system of trade that does not require their genius, planning or input, to be successful.

So, Throughout history the Free Market has ruled unmatched in it’s success and durability as the premier economic system.
(An aside: I’ve encountered a school of liberalism (a poorly educated one) that has labeled Free Market trade as “Smithian Capitalism”. I would remind these Elitist Know Nothings that Smith was simply an observer and recorded what had been evident for millennia. Just because he was the first to organize it on paper does not make him the architect of voluntary trade.)
Free trade has flourished under monarchies and Marxism alike.

It cannot be stopped… but that seems to be one of the tenets of our present day, home-grown Socialists. There is an ongoing effort to slow Capitalism down with policy issues like global warming which then lead to ideas like cap-and-trade etc. Ironically it is the resistance from the rest of the socialized world which stands in the way of these ill-founded ideas… the Communist Chinese understand the value of free market trade which is why Hong Kong has been left alone.  But they also recognize the inability to control a population enjoying a Free-Market, which is why they have not officially adopted the economic system for China proper.
But the point is, when the superiority of Free Market Capitalism is recognized even by those who wish to see it go away, you have to ask yourself why are we still fighting with these same types of people at home?
I have and will continue to offer it is about Power and Control… it is about a mindset that see themselves so superior to you that the concept of not making your decisions for you is unthinkable. In their minds, It is about keeping you from always making the wrong choice because you’re too stupid to know better.
We finally have a single country, in the United States of America, founded on the beneficial evidence of  individual rights, voluntary trade and property rights.  And the Left can’t leave it alone.

I’m tired of placating these people and their oppressive ideas coated with a candy glaze of “fairness”.  Simply being born in a country doesn’t make it “yours”. If we are not racists then we should surely not be “Geographists” either. We should organize ourselves according to ideas on  Individual Freedom and Liberty.  Those who do not believe in how this country was founded need only find a country where their ideas fit in.

Socialists already own most of the planet… how is that working out for them?  Surely the EU could use the brilliance of our modern day Left to help them put their Socialist Utopia back in order.

Stealing from NEO… and Powerline… A little something for everyone.


Let’s start with a bit more from the recent CPAC. We all know Ben Shapiro, and yes, he is one of our great rising voices, but what I find fascinating is that as well as he resonates with us, he speaks just as well to the cousins, who increasingly find our outspokenness to be vital to […]

Ain’t got No Sugar.

(For David… regarding the idea that Socialism, referencing his question of my sanity on Trump’s China Tariffs, requires Capitalism to survive.  While the current topic involves raw materials the concept is the same.  Crappy Communist/Socialist countries require us, and our productivity, to exist.  They are parasitic.  This originally posted in Feb. 2012)

Given the latest comments by European Leaders at the G20 conference regarding their current difficulties having originated in the U.S. and President Obama’s granting amnesty to illegal aliens  with accolades from the Mexican President (because it is a huge subsidy to Mexico through the flow of US Dollars south), I thought it was worth revisiting.

It has been fascinating to watch as Europe melts down.

It illustrates a theory I’ve had for many years which is that socialists survive at the mercy of capitalists in the name of stability. I started thinking about this in the early nineties,  Clinton had just handed, yes handed, Mexico 5 billion dollars.  That was back when 5 billion could buy you something nice.  It was done under the auspices of fighting the war on drugs.  But what it really did was prop up a socialist state.  Who wants a revolution so close to home… right? I don’t mean to pick on Clinton because Reagan and Bush have done it too.

Reagan’s granting amnesty to 13 million illegal immigrants was another way of subsidizing Mexico as it kept the flow of U.S. Dollars heading south into their economy.  (We could see this again…)  George W. did it by making it illegal to purchase prescription medication from Canada.  If that had been made legal it would have been tantamount to declaring war on Canada because it would have destroyed their health system by preventing them from dictating prices they would pay to the drug companies.  To put it in the simplest terms, they get away with dictating prices because you pay more here and subsidize the cost for them.  Feel good about that? We have seen this type of socialist subsidizing for years across every administration.  It is primarily through our military… “You guys in trouble financially?”,  “Let’s have joint maneuvers, or how about we move some more troops in for training exercises…”.  All that means is U.S. Dollars going in to the their not-so-self-sufficient Socialist Paradise.

We have also seen this played out when military contracts are steered to foreign countries for no apparent benefit.  The product isn’t better, but darn it they need the help.  (Bare in mind, I am a capitalist… it is my duty to buy the best product for me at the lowest price.  I have no issue with overseas manufacturing.  Our lack of manufacturing says more about us than them.  That’s for another time.) Well, now things have changed…  we ain’t got no money.

Look at the panic and finger-pointing when the engine of Capitalism, slowly poisoned by Socialists, isn’t healthy enough to ride in and save the Socialist Dream.

If I sound merciless, it’s because I am.  As far as I’m concerned Socialism has been living on borrowed time.  (And it has been our own socialists lending it to them.)  To steal a quote; “The chickenssss have come hoooome to roooost!” Now big daddy ain’t got no sugar…. and you’re on your own.

(An aside:  When are we going to have emergency hearings on “home-grown Socialism”?  Does Homeland Security know about this?  Where’s the Socialist Watch List?  The Socialist No-Fly roster?  Can’t we profile these people?  The destruction to this country and its citizens is profound. Someone should alert the press.)
