Would it have made a difference if people had read and taken seriously Hitler’s Mein Kampf?    Probably a lot less than the over 60 million people who paid the price for Chamberlain and Daladier believing that they could rationally negotiate with evil resulting in the Munich Agreement signd 09/30/1938 assuring the world of “Peace in our time.”  There is an Islamic equivalent to Hitler’s book and a high price to pay for failing to understand the Taqiyya* or recognizing the extent of Iranian involvement in world wide terror, the acquisition of ICBMs capable of nuclear warhead delivery and the message in Iran’s Ayatollah’s book.

We have a free service which helps US communicate with our legislators on issues such as the Iran Deal which will have a profound effect on our near future.  Can we trust Iran which is currently the largest state sponsor of terrorism to honor an agreement?  Check the definition of Taqiyya* below.  http://www.congressmerge.com/onlinedb/

Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin plus many others “On September 9th, at one o’clock on the west lawn of the Capitol building, the Center for Security Policy is co-hosting a rally against the deal.  We are part of a broad coalition of organizations– including the Tea Party Patriots and the Zionist Organization of America– who are coming together to force Congress to take stock of the will of the people.”

The rally will be held 2 days short of the 14th anniversary of 911 which showed that the terrorists love death more than what a lot of Americans appear to love life.

The Case Against the Iran Deal: How Can We Now Stop Iran from Getting Nukes?   By Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz introductions begiThe Case Against the Iran Dealns:

Dershowitz into paragraph

We have a recent history lesson with North Korea which agreed to non proliferation and stalled the world until they had nuclear capabilities making them a far more serious threat to world peace than before the agreement.  Allowing a threat to increase without addressing it increases the probability of a far greater price for peace.   As Hitler admitted:  “The forty-eight hours after the march into the Rhineland were the most nerve-racking in my life. If the French had then marched into the Rhineland we would have had to withdraw with our tails between our legs, for the military resources at our disposal would have been wholly inadequate for even a moderate resistance.”    https://www.armscontrol.org/factsheets/dprkchron

·           From Taqiyya about Taqiyya  by Raymond Ibrahim on April 12, 2014 in IslamOther Matters

Taqiyya is of fundamental importance in Islam. Practically every Islamic sect agrees to it and practices it … We can go so far as to say that the practice of taqiyya is mainstream in Islam, and that those few sects not practicing it diverge from the mainstream … Taqiyya is very prevalent in Islamic politics, especially in the modern era.[1]

WE NEED BULLET PROOF INSPECTION ABILITY OR WE DELUDE OURSELVES THAT ALL WILL BE WELL BECAUSE WE HAVE A CHAMBERLAIN-DALADIER AGREEMENT FOR NO NUCLEAR WEAPONS DEVELOPMENT!  IDIOT = In Denial Intensely Obscuring Truth from oneself

 Mirroring = judging others through our cultural and moral prism rather than learning about and judging them through theirs in negotiations is a potentially fatal mistake!!!!!!

THE AMERICAN PUPPET CLASS

WHY would someone born into the unique country, America, designed and structured by our Founding Fathers, after a lot of study of the failings of humans, with the safeguards to protect our LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS (ownership of property) by designating those rights as given by a power higher than the government support the destruction of those protections?
My conclusion that we have a Manchurian Puppet Class is from my discussions with Progressive voters and the huge disparity between rhetoric, practice and results and the voter’s perception of what [is] as well as my study of propaganda.
I give a few examples of instances which my conclusion that there is a Manchurian Puppet Class on standby until the Puppet Masters require their use after the following references to propaganda which best explains what I experience.

1. 1985 interview of KGB defector, Yuri Bezmenov who, in 1985 gives me an explanation of what I observe. Less than a minute in => Yuri Bezmenov describes Ideological Subversion – the main emphasis of the KGB “is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion or active measures or psychological warfare. What it basically means is to change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent, that, despite of the abundance of information, no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community and their country. It’s a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages. The first one being Demoralization. It takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years which requires to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy exposed to the ideology of the enemy. In other words, Marxism/Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least three generations of American students without being challenged or counter balanced by the basic values of Americanism, American patriotism.
Most of the activity of the department was to compile a huge amount, a volume of information, on individuals who were instrumental in creating public opinion: publishers, editors, journalists, actors, educationalists, professors of political science, members of parliament, representatives of business circles.”
There is much more about the results and progression of the KGB program. About 8 minutes in, he points out that you will be able to show them that black is black and white is white and they will not believe you. Was this program the source of Nikita Khrushchev ‘First Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union 1953-1964’ stating, ‘‘You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you’ll finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you. We’ll so weaken your economy …until you’ll fall like overripe fruit into our hands.”

2. Investor’s Business Daily ran a 5 part series on propaganda with the fifth part being on:
“Propaganda: Key To The Communist Takeover In Russia By MONICA SHOWALTER Posted 08/23/2013 06:54 PM ET”
It pointed out that, “Propaganda was decisive in the victory of the Bolsheviks in the Russian Revolution of 1917. From its very beginning, “The Soviet state was more permeated with propaganda than any other,” wrote University of California historian Peter Kenez in “The Birth of the Propaganda State: Soviet Methods of Mass Mobilization, 1917-1929.”
It was astonishing that a ragtag, uncouth band of conspiratorially inclined communists, led by V.I. Lenin, managed to topple the mighty czar of Russia and the weak social democratic government that followed him, decisively taking power in the October 1917 revolution.
But much of it can be explained by their mastery of propaganda, which was stronger, simpler, more centralized, more national and more quickly delivered than that of any of their socialist rivals.” as well as pointing out,
“And unlike the French revolutionaries, who advocated a constitution, as well as the “removal of unnatural obstacles” in Rousseau’s utopian vision, Lenin had contempt for a constitution — and for the social democrats who wanted one. He substituted “hope” for constitution, wrote Volkogonov.”
http://news.investors.com/print/ibd-editorials-viewpoint/082313-668676-lenin-used-propaganda-for-communist-takeover.aspx
3. Executive Order 2594 Established the Committee on Public Information run by George Creel and tasked with bringing the American people’s view of World War I in a positive manner and painting the Germans as negatively as possible.
http://theoyl.com/2013/08/23/social-engineering-the-origin-justification-and-control-of-propaganda/
“Woodrow Wilson’s Department of Information Edward Bernays was the father of what we now know as “Public Relations.” But he was much more than that. He was also a founding father of the American Progressive movement and was intimately connected to Woodrow Wilson and Walter Lippmann, the revered American elder of American journalism. And there’s still more. All three of these men saw their work as the result of applied sciences.
Here, Hitler’s is speaking about the very spirit of the argument contained in Woodrow Wilson’s essays (Leaders of Men, The President of the United States and The Study of Administration) where – essentially – he argues that the proper role of the American President is to be the will of the people.””
I am puzzled by some voter’s reaction to:
1. our government program supplying arms to cartels and using the results to push for gun control because it is “too easy” to get guns in America. Two federal agents are murdered, 20 Mexican teenagers at a party are slaughtered for just three of a long list of terrorizing instances of the result of Fast and Furious. The investigation gets blocked by the president invoking Executive Privilege when Issa starts uncovering misrepresentations indicating a cover up.
Sandy Hook is used for a push for gun control with calls for protecting our children in spite of the FBI statistics showing a decrease in this type of crime. The majority of proposals increase government intervention in our lives and would not have prevented slaughter of the children and staff at Sandy Hook.
I could draw the conclusion that federal agents and Mexican teenagers are throwaways compared to American children, but I somehow believe it is more about the propaganda usefulness or the danger of exposure of truth than the victims.
2. The Trayvon Martin case is a prime example of “The efficiency of the truly national leader consists primarily in preventing the division of the attention of a people, and always in concentrating it on a single enemy.” — Adolf Hitler Martin was presented in pictures as a clean cut teenager rather than a tatted up playing the role guy, edited 911 call to present Zimmerman as a racist, and the media edited George Zimmerman’s picture of his scalp injury. The Race Merchants have incited a lynch mob mentality focus on Zimmerman, the target of a campaign of distractive hate to justify an assault on firearms and the Stand Your Ground Law by the Administrators who “know” that the people are incompetent in running their own lives. We saw the same suffering in the Duke La Crosse fraud which was more about political agenda without regard to the damage to the innocent men falsely accused.
The fact that people can get whipped up by this ludicrous campaign to promote racial dissent is devoid of any rational thought. We have a Puppet Class ready to brought to mob status at a moment’s notice.
3. The painting of the TEA Party as racist through obvious lies such as editing a rifle carrying black man’s picture and using it as evidence of the “white gun toting racists” or the lies (huge number of cameras and $100,000.00 offered for proof of false claims) perpetrated by House Speaker Pelosi and Representative Lewis. What kind of rational thinking person looks at the following people and sees a group of people with a racist attitude who carry on a war on women?
The Manchurian Puppet Class on standby until the

PROGRAMMED PUPPET CLASS is the only explanation possible for thinking that these people are racists involved in a war on women.

PROGRAMMED PUPPET CLASS is the only explanation possible for thinking that these people are racists involved in a war on women.

Puppet Masters require their use.

HOW PROGRAMMABLE ARE AMERICAN VOTERS?

We hear about the “racist” TEA Party and many people talk like they believe it.  The people in the following picture show what is real.

The AWFUL (*1) Administration counted on its supporters being big enough IDIOTs (*2) that they would look at the Americans in the TEA Party and be so blinded by their programming that they believed the TEA Party to be racist.  Pathetic, but true.  

Like KGB defector, Yuri Bezmenov said in his 1985 interview, you will be able to show the programmed Americans that white is white and black is black and they will not believe you.  It came true.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-ZQbJHagx4&feature=related

George Orwell, in 1948, wrote 1984 and talked about Double Speak.  We are experiencing a major redefinition of the words in our language which seems to be for an obvious purpose.  Communications depends upon precise definitions of the words which we use.  A doctor calling for a scalpel does not anticipate being handed a hammer and this is true throughout many disciplines.  

“How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!”  —  Samuel Adams

Michael Ramirez, the IBD cartoonist, shows an obvious example of one of the redefinitions –

The current focus on immigration diverting attention from the reality that we do have a legal, in need of major revision, immigration program.  It is being packaged in an emotional rather than logical manner and more for political/economic gain than for the good of America.  A sovereign nation has the ability to control people coming across its borders and if it is so desirable a destination, preserving what makes it that appealing is not something which should be ignored.  Renaming illegal aliens which is a concise description pointing out our need to address the issues rather than actually dealing with the issues avoids the problems.  Renaming illegal aliens to obscure what is real and existent, arguably to the detriment of America in maintaining a way for criminals or terrorists to enter, creates a danger to our country.  

Why would CAP push so hard for the obfuscation?  Possibly because a major funding source commented, “It is easy to destroy a country’s currency. It is very difficult to destroy their sovereignty.”  —  George Soros    Don’t we, as Americans, have an obligation to preserve the America worth coming to after leaving all that people have in other countries because it is better in America rather than not maintain the value of America?

ENGLISH JOURNALIST DEFINES THE QUESTION ELECTION DAY WILL DECIDE

The choice we have is described very well by an American born and raised in England journalist.  Her description raises an obvious question if we truly mean what we say when we talk about doing good for our fellow citizens.  Why are we not maximizing [Collected Tax Revenue] by optimizing the tax rate using the concept of the Laffer Curve and creating a business climate giving a higher probability of being able to sustain the programs which we create or already have.  Where is she wrong? 

Janet Daley, in The Telegraph – 9:00PM BST 01 Sep 2012

points out the main issue in this election in her article, “The myth of a democratic socialist society funded by capitalism is finished”  summarized by her paragraph, “What is being challenged is nothing less than the most basic premise of the politics of the centre ground: that you can have free market economics and a democratic socialist welfare system at the same time. The magic formula in which the wealth produced by the market economy is redistributed by the state – from those who produce it to those whom the government believes deserve it – has gone bust. The crash of 2008 exposed a devastating truth that went much deeper than the discovery of a generation of delinquent bankers, or a transitory property bubble. It has become apparent to anyone with a grip on economic reality that free markets simply cannot produce enough wealth to support the sort of universal entitlement programmes which the populations of democratic countries have been led to expect. The fantasy may be sustained for a while by the relentless production of phoney money to fund benefits and job-creation projects, until the economy is turned into a meaningless internal recycling mechanism in the style of the old Soviet Union.” 

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/us-politics/9513687/We-should-tune-in-to-the-Romney-and-Ryan-show.html

 

Look at the results of a Collective – Redistributive form of government:

Amount spent per [household in poverty] for 2011 was $60,000.00   *1  This is several times the threshold per the Census Bureau  *2

Large government guarantees or federal funds given to companies which failed at taxpayer expense rather than venture capital risking investor money to create jobs and grow the economy  *3

Stockholders, pension plan bond investors, dealerships and non-union Delphi employees were put second in General Motors bankrupty.  Both General Motors and Chrysler received federal funds “to prevent them having to go bankrupt”, were put into an unconventional bankruptcy with the bond holders intimidated into not asserting their legal priority to the benefit of the UAW.  The effect of this series of events warns investors that America is no longer a rule of law country where you can depend upon contracts and make long range forecasts to plan expansion. 

The above are but 3 examples of  the validity of,   “It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong” Dr. Thomas Sowell

Do the intentions matter if they result in a loss of the free enterprise system with equal opportunity that allowed America to be exceptional?  “The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal—well-meaning but without understanding.”  —  Author: Louis D. Brandeis 

Why more people come to America than the number of people who leave it.  Edwin Durgy, Forbes Staff wrote about someone who fled Communism and made took the opportunity offered in America.  On October 10th Interactive Brokers Group founder and CEO Thomas Peterffy posted a video to his eponymous YouTube account titled “Freedom To Succeed.” In the minute long spot the Hungarian-born billionaire briefly shares his personal history before guiding the viewer through a lesson in basic economics. If production is disincentivized to the point where rational economic agents begin to curtail their output, he asserts, economic depression and widespread poverty are inevitable. http://www.forbes.com/sites/edwindurgy/2012/10/15/billionaire-thomas-peterffy-publishes-anti-socialism-political-advertisement/  

*1  “According to the Census’s American Community Survey, the number of households with incomes below the poverty line in 2011 was 16,807,795,” the Senate Budget Committee notes. “If you divide total federal and state spending by the number of households with incomes below the poverty line, the average spending per household in poverty was $61,194 in 2011.”  http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/over-60000-welfare-spentper-household-poverty_657889.html

The chart below begs the question, “Is it moral to justify feel good programs today at the expense of those who will inherit the bill and must pay for them in the future?”  Pelosi and Reid controlled Congress 1/20/2007 to 1/20/2011 and budgets were not a priority.

Update: 7/19/12:   http://www.dividedstates.com/list-of-failed-obama-green-energy-solar-companies/

 ELECTRIC CAR BATTERY MAKER A123 SYSTEMS HAS FILED FOR Chap 11 BANKRUPTCY AFTER $249 MILLION IN TAXPAYER SUPPORT

 The Amonix Solar: FAIL! – manufacturing plant in North Las Vegas, subsidized by more than $20 million in federal tax credits and grants given by Obama Administration, has closed its 214,000 square foot facility a year after it opened.

  • Solar Trust of America: FAIL! – Filed Bankruptcy in Oakland, CA, April 3, 2012 
  • Bright Source: FAIL!  Bright Source warned Obama’s Energy Department officials in March 2011 that delays in approving a $1.6 billion U.S. loan guarantee would embarrass the White House and force the solar-energy company to close. Bright Source lost billions of dollars but is getting more money to keep trying. Can you say, “This isn’t working Mr. President?” 
  • Solyndra: FAIL!  Obama gave $500,000,000 (that’s a HALF BILLION!) in taxpayer money to Solyndra who shut its doors and laid off 1100 workers in August 2011 after billions in losses due to failure to make a solar product that works! Barack Obama was not vetted before being elected President and neither was Solyndra before Mr. Obama threw that taxpayer money down the drain of unproven technology. 
  • LSP Energy: FAIL!  LSPEnergy LP filed bankruptcy protection and a sale of its assets in Feb 2012 
  • Energy Conversion Devices: FAIL! – On February 14, 2012 Energy Conversion Devices, Inc. and its subsidiaries filed for bankruptcy 
  • Abound Solar: FAIL! – Abound Solar received a $400 million loan guarantee from Barack Obama then announced in June, 2012 that it would file for bankruptcy. Many of these failed corporations, such as Abound, donated MILLIONS and continue to donate to Barack Obama’s campaign. Can you say, “Democrat Slush Fund”? Yes this is illegal. But Democrats are being protected from being prosecuted, for now. 
  • SunPower: FAIL! – SunPower stopped producing solar cells in 2011 at near bankruptcy then restructured with the help of, get this, oil giant TOTAL, Inc. who owns 60% stake in SunPower. Irony? The company is still struggling. 
  • Beacon Power: FAIL! – Beacon Power Corp filed for bankruptcy protection in October, 2011 just a year after Obama approved a $43 million Government loan guarantee. They remain barely in business, still struggling to make energy that makes sense or that works at all.
  • Ecotality: FAIL! – ECOtality, a San Francisco green-tech company that never earned any money and remains on the verge of bankruptcy after receiving roughly $115 million in two loan guarantees from President Obama, who wants to do some more of this kind of Democrat Slush Fund Guarantees after he is elected to a 2nd term. 
  • A123 Solar: FAIL!  A123 Solar received $279 million from taxpayers thanks to President Obama’s Department of Energy loan guarantees even after the Solyndra bankruptcy and is getting another $500M from Obama after a loss of $400M. 
  • UniSolar: FAIL!  Uni-Solar filed for Ch 11 bankruptcy in June 20, 2012 after laying off hundreds of workers. UniSolar received even more Obama money after showing now progress, no profits and is still failing… yet they still remain in business with Obama’s help. 
  • Azure Dynamics: FAIL!  Azure Dynamics filed for bankruptcy in June , 2012 wasting millions in Obama “Stimulus” money and received abatement on taxes owed and and several tax credits.  Azure Dynamics LLC filed for bankruptcy protection in Canada and the US.  Azure laid off 120 of its 160 employees in Oak Park; Boston; Vancouver, British Columbia; and the UK.
  • Evergreen Solar: FAIL! – Evergreen Solar received $527 Million in Taxpayer money from Obama and filed bankruptcy in late 2011. Evergreen, which closed its taxpayer-supported Devens factory in March, 2011 cut more than 1800 jobs. Evergreen’s $450 million factory, turned out to be a colossal “waste” of taxpayer money. 
  • Ener1: FAIL! Ener1 Inc. received a $118 million U.S. Energy Department grant from President Obama to make electric-car batteries but filed for bankruptcy protection January 2012 after defaulting on bond debt.

CHECK THE MATH = FLASHING RED LIGHT AND SIREN

 

It is simple to check the premise of the presentation linked below this paragraph and to do the math – no calculator needed, just common sense.  Is it better to feel like we are a good, compassionate country as we fall into an age old trap or to honor our Founding Fathers by using the protections which they gave US and the warnings which they wrote to protect US from soft tyranny?    

 

 

 

http://www.staged.com/video?v=Klmb#comments  

 

 

 

“In general the art of government consists of taking as much money as possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other” – – Voltaire (17 64)  

 

 

 

The math doesn’t add up and that is why we were created as a Representative Republic – men are not angels.  This destructive strategy has gone on for a very long time.  Note the decline of America as an example of what a free people can accomplish verses the graph of dependency presented in the linked presentation above.  There is a way to reverse it.   The decrease in our position on the economic freedom index    

 

 

 

http://www.heritage.org/index/ranking   

 

 

 

gives a reason why we have yet to recover from this recession, just as FDR’s policies prolonged our recovery from The Great Depression.  The government collects less revenue as it increases regulation and tax rates.  “I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started. … And an enormous debt to boot!”  — Henry Morgenthau Jr.—pal, lunch companion and loyal secretary of the Treasury to President Franklin D. Roosevelt.  

 

 

 

“The national budget must be balanced. The public debt must be reduced; the arrogance of the authorities must be moderated and controlled. Payments to foreign governments must be reduced. If the nation doesn’t want to go bankrupt, people must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.” — Marcus Tullius Cicero, 55 BC     Quotation #23141 from Rand Lindsly’s Quotations

 

 

 

The promotion of dependency is an assault on America using the well intentioned, naive American as a weapon against a unique form of government.  Cloward and Piven, contributors to the Progressive strategy, suggested increasing demands upon the system to the point of creating such a financial crisis that the government can be transformed into a collective form.  We have more warning of this now than we did of the Fannie-Freddie 2008 collapse and that was predicted years before it happened.  

 

 

 

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

 

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

 

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

 

You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.

 

You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

 

You cannot build character and courage by taking away men’s initiative and independence.

 

You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.—Abraham Lincoln  

 

 

 

The acceptance speeches of Reagan and of Obama gave US a preview of the results of their term in office.  Our country’s future depends upon US holding our leaders accountable.

 

 

 

“We should measure welfare’s success by how many people leave welfare, not by how many are added.” – Ronald Reagan 

 

 

 

Is there any explanation for the nationwide, aggressive campaign to recall Governor Scott Walker after he turned Wisconsin around other than the Collective care more about their power than the pain and suffering their fight to keep power inflicts upon the people?

Is The Declaration of Independence a Checklist for Today?

The Founding Fathers studied history and their insight into human frailty is the reason that they gave US the structure and warnings in their writings, should we care to read them and objectively analyze conditions today in light of their wisdom. I also add a:

1.   link to a list of the Founding Fathers, who they were and their fate

2.  slave’s tribute to George Washington. It would do some people good to check what they hear against what was real and to judge the purveyors of lies for what they are.

I put the following quotations in an order appropriate for thinking about how my references to specific portions of The Declaration of Indpendence apply to our country’s direction today.

“That which we obtain too easily, we esteem too lightly. It is dearness only which gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price on its goods.” — Thomas Paine

“Posterity, you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that ever I took half the pains to preserve it.” John Adams

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” — John Adams

Rather than allow my point to be sidetracked into a discussion of religion’s role in our development as a nation, I would ask those of you who believe otherwise to view the Judeo – Christian foundation of America as a Logical Construct and read this in light of that construct’s principles. While listening to my wife read The Declaration of Independence aloud to begin our July 4th day of gratitude for those who have paid the price in different ways for the creation and preservation of this nation, I thought about how appropriate this document is to our political conditions today. That is the purpose of this post.

Would the Anti-Federalist papers now be seen by history to have not been heeded enough? One final reference to clarify the purpose of this post is a paragraph from

The Federalist No. 51
The Structure of the Government Must Furnish the Proper Checks and Balances Between the Different Departments
Independent Journal
Wednesday, February 6, 1788
[James Madison]
“But the great security against a gradual concentration of the several powers in the same department, consists in giving to those who administer each department the necessary constitutional means and personal motives to resist encroachments of the others. The provision for defense must in this, as in all other cases, be made commensurate to the danger of attack. Ambition must be made to counteract ambition. The interest of the man must be connected with the constitutional rights of the place. It may be a reflection on human nature, that such devices should be necessary to control the abuses of government. But what is government itself, but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? 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.”

This post asks, “How appropriate are these sections of The Declaration of Independence to today?” I believe that Americans today ignore a duty which we have to the world.
Why would we as a unique and exceptional country – look at our accomplishments per our time in history and the fact that the Fence Test shows that people would give up what they have and, in some cases, risk their life to get here rather than do whatever they have to to escape from here – abdicate our duty to provide an example for and assist the rest of the world being more like US than US sinking into the pool of nations unequal to US. We have, in my opinion, as our cost of admission to this incredible country, an obligation to protect the gift which we received and to pass it on to those who follow US, whether they are Americans or citizens of another nation. The American Free Enterprise system of rewarding risk and endeavor when it succeeds raises far more people to a higher standard of living than some central planner in a Collective who does not suffer the consequences of his decisions. Private Enterprise is Self Cleansing and Government is like a Cancer if it is allowed to Grow.
A few observations in the beginning and then the appropriateness of the Declarations.

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty

Are we involved in a choice between personal sovereignty and choosing to cede personal sovereignty for a caretaker – are we capable of governing ourselves or do we need a central planner to make our choices?
and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
An observation that humans are both impulsive and government must not be easily changed, but they are also like frogs in a pot brought to a slow boil and will allow bad things to happen if they have become accustomed to them.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

Does this apply to:
1. our border security and the Executive Branch’s choice to not enforce the Federal Law.
2. the Black Panther voter intimidation case
3. the approval of the issuance of a $10,000 bounty for an American citizen, dead or alive – if the government didn’t approve of it, they would have prosecuted those who offered it

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

Does this apply to:
1. Creating an immigration law which is more efficient and enforced so that people who want to leave their homeland for a better life in America have a clearer, more efficient system under which they are processed rather than facing the reality that illegal entry is more effective.
2. Opposing SB1070 – Arizona’s attempt to defend its citizens because the federal government was not effective in doing so – federal responsibilty to defend borders

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

This was the main thing which brought the appropriateness of the Founding Father’s warnings to US today:T
1. The Obama Tax and Regulate US to Death Bill
a. the creation of 159 bureacracies
b. the creation of 47 new agencies
c. 16,500 new IRS agents enforcing our “enjoyment of what was sold to US as a “Right”?”
d. 20 new taxes
e. the creation of an immense amount of issues that create a need for the employment of attorneys and their staff as well as a tremendous amount of negotiation or litigation opportunities. The Congress and Executive Branch did not do their job or we would not be exposed to this disasterous result.
f. This affects everyone from a jobseeker who is less likely to be employed in light of an employer’s analysis of the cost of wages, benefits which are negotiated or enforced through regulation, cost of compliance with the government regulators and company overhead for the employer. The wages of the employee or the cost of the goods and services must be increased to pay for the added cost imposed under this Act.
g. Public employment which is increased by this Act pay taxes which discounts the actual cost of wages, benefits, and overhead of management and facilities, but do not create. Government is OVERHEAD, not PRODUCTION just as business compliance costs are not income producing, but do add to the price of the goods and services of that employer. Public employees are paid for by COLLECTED Tax Revenue. It takes several private enterprise employees paying taxes to support the cost = wages and overhead of one public employee.
2. the NLRB used to hinder Boeing employing people in a Right to Work state
3. Attaaaaack Watch

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

1. there is some speculation in this regard with executive order and acquisition of arms – I am not familar enough to do anything but note that as a point for another time

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

1. the call for a civilian force equally well funded, armed and trained as compared to our military raised some issues in light of the history of the world post the Revolutionary War. This redundancy which would place more control under the Executive Branch over an army is not only a waste of resources, but a step along the road paved with the mistakes of history.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

1. Do some of the above ring of AGENDA 21 or Climate Control or the International Small Arms Treaty of the United Nations supported to a large extent by the United States of America and seeking to erode our sovereignty by having US voluntarily cede sovereignty through our agreement to these and to our reference to International Law.
Why would we as a unique and exceptional country – look at our accomplishments per our time in history and the fact that the Fence Test shows that people would give up what they have and, in some cases, risk their life to get here rather than do whatever they have to to escape from here – abdicate our duty to provide an example and assist the rest of the world being more like US than US sinking into the pool of nations unequal to US. We have, as our cost of admission to this incredible country, an obligation to maintain the gift which we received and to pass it on to those who follow US, whether they are Americans or citizens of another nation. The American Free Enterprise system of rewarding risk and endeavor when it succeeds raises far more people to a higher standard of living than some central planner in a Collective who does not suffer the consequences of his decisions.

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

1. disparaging groups like the TEA Party with false statements while supporting OWS which obstructs business and costs municipalities money to clean up after them, inciters like Farrakhan or the New Black Panthers calling for killing white babys and the flow of white blood in the streets. Issuing false warnings about the TEA Party and ignoring the flagrant Leftists CONDONES & SUPPORTS them.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

These Founding Fathers are unappreciated by many because a tyrant cannot control an educated populace. Compare what is said by the Left to reality and judge those purveyors of an inaccurate view for what they truly are = political insurgents on a mission to attack US from within as has been done with well intentioned people duped by those exhibiting Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry as they seek control to form a Collective Elite at other times in history.  The Communist Revolution sounded like a good idea to many and ended with millions dying and millions suffering because they trusted men to be angels.

I reference a post describing who and the fate of the Founding Fathers, a portion of which states,

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

There is an answer, the first part of which states, “Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons in the Revolutionary Army, another had two sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.”

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.”

Read the Eulogy of George Washington by a slave, Richard Allen, and judge those who talk about the Founding Fathers being rich slave owners in light of who has the TRUTH

http://www.ushistory.org/presidentshouse/history/alleneulogy.htm

I will end this long post about our short lived country’s founding with,


NUMBER: 1593
AUTHOR: Benjamin Franklin (1706–90)
QUOTATION: “Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?”

“A Republic, if you can keep it.”
ATTRIBUTION: The response is attributed to BENJAMIN FRANKLIN—at the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, when queried as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation—in the notes of Dr. James McHenry, one of Maryland’s delegates to the Convention.

McHenry’s notes were first published in The American Historical Review, vol. 11, 1906, and the anecdote on p. 618 reads: “A lady asked Dr. Franklin Well Doctor what have we got a republic or a monarchy. A republic replied the Doctor if you can keep it.” When McHenry’s notes were included in The Records of the Federal Convention of 1787, ed. Max Farrand, vol. 3, appendix A, p. 85 (1911, reprinted 1934), a footnote stated that the date this anecdote was written is uncertain.”

ARE THE PROGRESSIVES ABDICATING AMERICA’S DUTY TO HUMANITY

Our price of admission is the preservation and handing the gift which we received, America, to the next generation.  Americans are in a position to choose whether we want to continue to be an example of what a free people can accomplish or to be an example of what happens to quitters.

The title to the book, The 5000 Year Leap, A Miracle That Changed the World, points out the huge contribution to the world in America’s very short history. We have, during our history, provided an example to the people of the world of what a free people entitled to enjoy the fruits of their risk and labor will accomplish. This has drawn ambitious people from all over the world because we offer opportunities not available in their homeland. We are now tracking the paths of other failing economies which have subsidized rather than incentivized.

THE CHALLENGE: How do we employ more American workers which will generate more collected tax revenue to support the overhead of government while enabling the workers to support their families and themselves independent of government assistance? The regular people from the retired – union/non union – public/private employees – business owners – investors would do much better if businesses were encouraged to expand and employ people. Forget Keynes’ The Means to Prosperity verses Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom and look at the results we have with sustained high unemployment and a huge increase in poverty and government dependence on food stamps, unemployment and mandates that private enterprise provide goods and services such as the Illinois private bank attacked by the DOJ for good lending practices or health benefits added to private providers mandates. The national debt now exceeds GDP which is not terminal if we continue to be able to service the debt by attacking our economic condition on many fronts, one of which is employment which increases collected tax revenue and decreases government expenses for unemployment related items.

America was created by a group of people who looked back into history and studied what had not worked as well as the human deficiencies which erode a government. They created a structure which would protect a just and moral people from tyranny and allow the industrious and risk takers to create and reap the rewards of their efforts. Businesses are sitting on money and constantly evaluating risk/reward to look for ways to make more money. They typically need to employ people to increase their income because they generate returns on their outlays or go out of business because they did not meet the needs of their customers at a price which the customer was willing to pay. “The advantage of a free market is that it allows millions of decision-makers to respond individually to freely determined prices, allocating resources — labor, capital and human ingenuity — in a manor that can’t be mimicked by a central plan, however brilliant the central planner.” — -Friedrich von Hayek

The following interview points out the thinking of a lot of small businesses which are being defensive rather than choosing to expand and employ more people. We need to nurture small business because the Small Business Administration points out:

“1. What is a small business?
The Offce of Advocacy defines a small business as an independent business having fewer than 500 employees. (The definition of “small business” used in government programs and contracting varies by industry; see http://www.sba.gov/size.)

2. How important are small businesses to the U.S. economy?
Small firms:
• Represent 99.7 percent of all employer firms.
• Employ half of all private sector employees.
• Pay 44 percent of total U.S. private payroll.
• Generated 65 percent of net new jobs over the past 17 years.
• Create more than half of the nonfarm private GDP.
• Hire 43 percent of high tech workers ( scientists, engineers, computer programmers, and others).
• Are 52 percent home-based and 2 percent franchises.
• Made up 97.5 percent of all identified exporters and produced 31 percent of export value in FY 2008.
• Produce 13 times more patents per employee than large patenting firms.”

This interview describes the view a lot of small business people have:

There is a Story of Stuff answer type cartoon which points out the advantage of helping each other do better rather than to take from those who have more than others.

Many small businesses have been driven under because the government gains too much power and the Collective chooses the winners and losers. There is a Collective made up of some big business and big union + some politicians + some very rich people. We see the results of any group having too much power throughout history and we were forewarned to guard against it as well as given the structure to prevent our loss of what makes America Exceptional and an example to the world of what a free people can accomplish.

“Government is not reason, it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” – George Washington

“Unlimited power is apt to corrupt the minds of those who possess it; and this I know, my lords, that where laws end, tyranny begins” — William Pitt the younger, British Prime Minister (1783-1801, 1804-06) during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars. 1759-1806 who also said,
“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.”

IS GLENN BECK BEING PLAYED OR HAS HE FOUND A SMOKING GUN?

The tape linked below is a preview of an attack on the American economy starting with J P Morgan Chase in May of 2011. Has Beck been suckered or is what a lot of us have feared been better documented. One of the principles of propaganda is to deny others the ability to quote the propagandist in a lie and to mix in enough truth that people will lie to themselves. The words of this former SEIU executive fit that if this tape is real. The Pentagon report suggesting that there was a possibility of an economic terrorist attack on the American economy a few years ago might indicate that this is not the first attack on the American economy.

Beck has requested statements from the White House and FBI for his show this evening.

A tape of a meeting in which a May 2011 assault on America’s economy was acquired by Beck and copies were forwarded to Chase, a chosen target, and to the Department of Justice.
Steve Lerner, a high level organizer and former SEIU leader, is one of the speakers on this tape in which a plan to create economic chaos is outlined. One of the participants refers to Cloward – Pivens http://cloward-piven.com/
Quote: Cloward-Piven is a strategy for forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The strategy was first proposed in 1966 by Columbia University political scientists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven as a plan to bankrupt the welfare system and produce radical change. Sometimes known as the “crisis strategy” or the the “flood-the-rolls, bankrupt-the-cities strategy,” the Cloward-Piven approach called for swamping the welfare rolls with new applicants – more than the system could bear. It was hoped that the resulting economic collapse would lead to political turmoil and ultimately socialism.

Some of these people are reaching internationally and there is enough awareness that they have come more out in the open in spite of Lerner’s admonition that the union must not be connected to organizing this assault.

Listen to this recording or watch Glenn Beck TV to see what he actually shows and states. Then listen to those who discuss what he shows and states and it will give a clear understanding of who stands where. Note that I did not state my pre-judgement because each of us is obligated to gather information, vette it and share it with each other. By our vetting the information and sharing the results with each other we can test our analysis and tune up how we make our decisions.

I have a good comparison of the two sides by them. One is shown to school children and the other is a description of the benefit of a free enterprise America by an entrepenuer:

OR

Some Americans rejected capitalism and relocated to Russia during the Great Depression. The better life which they sought is described in, “the book, The Forsake: An American Tragedy In Stalin’s Russia by Tim Tzouliadis is a stark and tragic account of what happened in the 1930’s to thousands of Americans as a result of not knowing what communism was all about.”

WILL OUR CHILDREN BE EQUIPPED FOR THE WORLD WHICH THEY INHERIT?

Education gives children tools which they can use to help make their way in the world.  It is my understanding that one of the things being promoted and in some cases shown to children per the New York Times 5/10/2009 article in the Education Section linked at

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/11/education/11stuff.html

is The Story of Stuff, which the article states, “So far, six million people have viewed the film at its site, storyofstuff.com, and millions more have seen it on YouTube. More than 7,000 schools, churches and others have ordered a DVD version, and hundreds of teachers have written Ms. Leonard to say they have assigned students to view it on the Web.

It has also won support from independent groups that advise teachers on curriculum choices. Facing the Future, a curriculum developer for schools in all 50 states, is drafting lesson plans based on the video. And Ms. Leonard has a contract with Simon & Schuster to write a book based on the video.” which can be viewed at

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLBE5QAYXp8

This gives one side of an argument on capitalism’s use of natural resources and could be very valuable if the teacher were given a guide and were capable of:

1.         showing another viewpoint such as Stick Figure Capitalism at

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEZ4St2BYnk

2.         relating the message in each to current conditions such as unemployment, oil spills, mitigation methods such as reforestation, desalination of ocean water by Long Beach, SERF = the Long Beach disposal facility which generates power from rubbish

3.         an analysis of the information, discussion including analyzing propaganda as well as the principles promoted,  in each and a debate

My fear is that this type of what appears to me to be indoctrination including the showing of An Inconvenient Truth without a discussion and counter argument is creating the American demise.  An example of why I fear that we are intentionally putting America on her economic knees is the oil drilling moratorium placed upon American oil workers while America funds a portion of Mexican drilling in the area from which Americans are banned.  America is financially backing Soros-Petrobras Brazilian oil exploration while we do not develop our resources.  This denies American workers jobs during a 10% unemployment time and creates an energy dependent America.  Why are we not employing American workers to boost our economy and develop our energy independence which promotes a better standard of living and a more secure nation?

Our children will inherit the world which we create and their education will either make them vulnerable or enable them to deal with the issues that they inherit from US.

Americans have a weakness in negotiating per Roger Dawson, an Englishman who teaches negotiating.  It is the “What do you think is fair?” gambit and that is both a strength and weakness.  We are a very powerful nation and have never set out to colonize the world.  Japan and Germany rose to strong nations after we defeated them. Iraq has a budget surplus as we go into incredible National Debt.  The world is a much better place because America is in it.  There are a lot of foreign graveyards for American’s who died in the wars defending against tyranny.

It is child abuse for US to feel good as we support a cause detrimental to the world we bequeath our children.  Thomas Sowell has a book out, Intellectuals and Society which he discusses the lack of accountability of intellectuals who wreak havoc with their theories and are not held to account for the damage.  He points out that if a building falls down that architect is out of work, but intellectuals are not.  An interview showing some of the points affecting those who determine our course can be seen at

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERj3QeGw9Ok     

a prime example of this is the continued high unemployment in light of the history of Keynes verses Hayek – “I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started. … And an enormous debt to boot!”  —  Henry Morgenthau Jr.—pal, lunch companion and loyal secretary of the Treasury to President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
