Ousting the Neocons

The neoconservatives have been forced from the shadows to throw their hats in the political arena. This is something these clandestine kingmakers have been reluctant to do for decades and rightly so; they have controlled the Republican Party under the miasma of moderation, selling out the conservative voices of Americans: but no longer.

 The conservative movement that is sweeping this country is taking back the Republican Party and these neocons are raising their heads to cry foul. Last week Charles Krauthammer the neoconservative prophet decried the CPAC as “Fringe elements in the republican party.” He stated, and I paraphrase here, The CPAC is a bunch of college student who what to be Ayn Rand, then eventually grow up to become republicans.

 Then there is the prodigal son, Bill Crystal whose father Erving pioneered the neoconservative movement based on the philosophical musings of Leo Strauss, with a smattering of Machiavellian politics. Bill said of the Egyptian uprising, and I paraphrase here, it is 1776 all over again.

 He dismisses America’s failed foreign policy in the Middle East, comparing the anarchy of the mob with the American Revolution which created the freest most prosperous nation in history. He and his cohorts from the Bush administration are responsible for empowering the Islamic theocracy sweeping the Middle East. They took radical Islam out of the back streets and alley ways, and placed them in political driver’s seat in Iraq and soon to be Egypt. Not to worry, they say, this is democracy at work, this is freedom. No… . This is a process that empowers our enemies and threatens civilization as we know it.

 Poor Harry Reid can’t figure it out either. He said, and I paraphrase here, the Republican Party has been hijacked by the Tea Party and won’t compromise. What he should have said is: “The conservatives have taken back the Republican Party and we can no longer manipulate the neocons.”

 You will hear the media in the coming months refer to a rift in the Republican Party. That’s just us, the “Fringe elements” in the Republican Party reshaping it in our conservative image as we strive to save our country from the economic abyss, while restoring fiscal sanity, our liberty and constitution.

Labor Extortion in a Socialist Democracy

The ongoing labor protest in Wisconsin has the backing from the Democratic National Convention and President Obama’s political machine, Organizing for America. This is an unprecedented move by an American president, and his political party, to support a partisan special interest group.

 Unions are collectivized labor monopolies. They are exempt from the Sherman Act and the anti- monopoly laws of our nation. For decades they have lived large off the taxpayer’s dime; endowed with Cadillac insurance plans (exempted under Obama care), golden parachute pension with early retirement benefits (apart from social security), and salaries that far surpasses their private sector counterparts. They have accomplished this with the blessing of the Democratic Party, whom they support with union dollars to keep them in political power, essentially paying the democrats to legislate union largess at the taxpayer’s expense.

 In Wisconsin we see two coercive government-created, government-sponsored monopolies working in unison: the Teachers Union and the public school system, which has an abysmal record of failure, and a questionable future that defies fiscal sustainability.

 The talking heads of liberalism brand this political malfeasance as democracy in action. I beg to differ; this is anarchy in action. The democratic process was instituted last November legally at the ballot box, when the majority of Wisconsin people voted in republican conservatives to restore fiscal order to their state. The DNC endorsed mob on the streets of Madison, Wisconsin represents only a fraction of the taxpaying public; they are by no means a voting majority.

 If anything this labor unrest represents socialism. Here we have a collectivized labor monopoly, demanding fiscal privileges from the state, which in turn extorts money (taxes), from the private sector. We have Obama’s political machine enabling a special interest group that constitutes a large part of his voting constituency, and we have the perpetuation of an oppressive government monopoly (state run public schools).

 The bottom line is we have two unsustainable monopolies that are no longer economically feasible to maintain: the teachers union, which like all labor monopolies are bankrupting individual states to the tune of billions of dollars and the public school system, which not only is the most expensive in the world, but produces students who rank 36th in the world when compared with other nations.

 The governor and the people of Wisconsin are presented with a unique opportunity. They can start a national template for legally dismantling these oppressive labor monopolies. They should immediately eliminate the public school tax burden at the state level, so parents could take the fiscal savings and make financial plans to send their children to private schools. This would be a template disbanding the public school monopoly (another catalyst that would sweep across America).

 The democratic socialists (Obama administration), has played its hand in an attempt to maintain the status quo. This only facilitates the conservative movement sweeping across the nation, galvanizing our resolve to restore fiscal sanity to our constitutional republic.

 Some time ago the hypothetical question was raised in the media: “Is President Obama a socialist?” There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind; Obama’s actions speak louder than words.

Entitlement Wars

As the war on government spending escalates in Washington, we see the abject failure of American politics in action. Both parties struggle for power and control of the welfare state. The stakes are high. On one hand we have the preservation of our economy, our republic, culture and American sovereignty; on the other the perpetuation of the oppressive state which comes complete with keys to the Federal Reserve, fiat currency, a monopoly on force, and the legal jurisdiction to rob society of wealth.

 We are witnessing a tipping point in American democracy, whereby the entitlement class has grown into a formidable voting block, enabled by the vast government bureaucracy, which grows exponentially to redistribute the wealth of our industry. Democrats and Republicans alike know that elections are bought and paid for with entitlements, lucrative often no compete federal contracts, funding for unions and other government sponsored entities; Fannie Mea & Freddie Mac,  financial institutions, insurance companies, real-estate, and the list goes on.

 Those Americans, who conduct their lives based on reality and the causality thereof, know that government spending has reached a zenith and is unsustainable. Both parties maintain the pathological lie that they are fiscally conservative, that they intend to shrink government spending and cut entitlements, yet actions speak louder than words. Obama’s annual budget calls for 3.7 trillion in spending; spending that is littered with entitlements old and new. The democrats in the house and senate continue their time honored altruistic practice of using the poor and the elderly as human shields while they assail republicans for austere economic policies.

 The republican party, having long been commandeered by neoconservatives, swell their numbers in both the house and senate. They play a dangerous game of appeasement, conceding the liberal poison incrementally through a deceptive practice known as compromise. Evil like poison cannot be tolerated incrementally; the end run will lead to nothing but corruption and death.

Enter the Theocrats

Democrats and republicans alike are culpable for America’s failed foreign policy in the Middle East. Now they are trying (with their media accomplices) to project the uprising in Egypt as a plea for freedom by the Egyptian people crying out for democracy. The people of Egypt know not freedom or democracy; they do however, know religious zealotry. Egypt is governed by a supposed president and parliament under the pretense of a republic complete with a constitution. In reality it is an oligarchy which resembles dictatorial totalitarianism.

The civil unrest in the streets of Cairo is fueled by Islamic totalitarianism, seeking to over through a socialist dictatorial regime and replace it with theocratic socialist regime. In actuality, we are witnessing the evolution of totalitarianism, whereby warring factions fight for control of the state, and like a street fight, the victor will be the one who escalates the violence, and in this case it will most likely be the Islamic Brotherhood or an offshoot thereof.

 This begs the question why have we propped up a dictator for thirty years with taxpayer dollars; why do we, asupposed free nation, support totalitarian regimes with taxpayer dollars. Eventually all dictatorships fail; socialism begets more socialism, the cast of characters change but the outcome is always the same: violence, corruption, despotism, and political oppression, these are the byproducts of a police state; these are the tools of socialism.

The real criminality is watching America’s political leaders compound our failed foreign policy, with more foreign policy failures, claiming Mubarak was not a dictator, portraying the rioters as freedom fighters, extolling the virtues of Al Jazeera Media. Claiming Islam is a peaceful religion, claiming the terrorists are isolated fanatics acting at random, apart from Islamic ideology. And the pathological lie of the day: that the civil unrest in Egypt is caused by people seeking freedom and democracy. Nothing could be further from the truth.

 It is so disingenuous for politicians and the liberal media to advocate that we are witnessing freedom and democracy in action. It is America’s foreign policy failures that empower our enemies; spreading democracy in the Middle East has delivered us Hamas, Hezbollah, and Islamic socialism in Iran. In Iraq we toppled a dictator only to replace him with a parliament of Islamic fundamentalists.

 Egypt is a politically vacuous nation awaiting a succession of socialist, ushered into office under the guise of freedom and democracy; it will undoubtedly be heralded by American politicians as a triumph of the human spirit, another victory for freedom.
