Suppose you saw a person driving his car on the wrong side of a highway, against the traffic. Would you call him a stupid and/or incompetent driver? You say, “Williams, what kind of question is that? Of course he’s one or the other!” I’d say, “Hold your horses. What are his intentions?” If the driver’s intentions are to cause highway calamity, one can hardly call his actions stupid or incompetent. Given his intentions, he is wisely acting in a manner to achieve his objectives.This observation lies at the heart of my colleague Dr. Thomas Sowell’s column last week, in which he says, “Pundits who depict Obama as a weak, lame duck president may be greatly misjudging him, as they have so often in the past.” After suffering an elective trouncing at the polls, President Barack Obama issued Congress an ultimatum, saying that if it doesn’t enact the kind of immigration law that he would like, he will unilaterally issue an executive order to change the nation’s immigration laws. This threat, along with other abuses of his office, is not a sign of presidential stupidity or incompetence.

Obama is doing precisely what he promised during his 2008 presidential campaign, to cheering and mesmerized crowds: “We are going to fundamentally change America” and “We will change America. We will change the world.” Obama is living up to those pledges by subverting our Constitution and adopting the political style of a banana republic dictator. He showed his willingness to ignore the Constitution when he eliminated the work requirement in welfare reform laws enacted during the Clinton administration. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, was enacted by Congress and hence is the law of the land. Obama has used executive orders to change the law on several occasions. Ask yourself whether our Constitution permits the president to unilaterally change a law enacted by Congress. For a president to do so is for him to behave like a banana republic dictator.

As Sowell says, “people who are increasingly questioning Barack Obama’s competence are continuing to ignore the alternative possibility that his fundamental values and imperatives are different from theirs.”

The recent elections, which gave Republicans control of both houses of Congress, clearly indicate a repudiation of much of Obama’s agenda. But the question is whether the Republican majority has the courage to act on that repudiation and stop the president from running roughshod over the Constitution. Because Article 1 of the Constitution grants Congress the power of the purse, there is not much a president can do without a budget appropriation. The question is whether Congress has the guts to exercise its power.

We can rightfully condemn the president for picking and choosing which laws of the land he will obey and which he won’t, in violation of the Constitution’s Article 2, but is his administration’s executive branch that much of an exception to the other branches of the federal government — the legislative and judicial branches?

The legislative branch is bound by Article 1 of the Constitution. Section 8 of Article 1 delineates the scope of congressional power to tax and spend. Nowhere within Article 1, Section 8 is Congress granted the authority to tax for at least two-thirds of the federal budget.

The courts are bound by the Constitution’s Article 3. Part of the courts’ responsibility is to ensure that the executive and legislative branches of government uphold the Constitution. In that respect, the courts have been grossly derelict, particularly during and after the New Deal era.

Seeing as all branches of federal government ignore most of the provisions of the Constitution, I think we can safely say that we’ve reached the post-Constitution stage of our history. Washington politicians are not to blame. It’s the American people who’ve lost their love and respect for our Constitution. Washington’s politicians are simply the agents for that contempt.

FEEL GOOD STORY OF THE DAY: CHARLIE’S GETTING MARRIED

Here’s a story to warm the cockles of your heart. Misunderstood 80 year old mass murderer Charlie Manson has found true love with a hot 26 year old nutjob. They met on the dating website eMassMurderer.com. Look how happy Charlie is. I really think this marriage is going to last. At least until he gets done chopping her into 150 pieces.

 

They’ve hired a wedding planner and invited all their closest felons, murderers, rapists, and child molesters to the nuptials. Their first dance as newlyweds will be to Helter Skelter by the Beatles. I understand they’ve asked Roman Polanski to come back to the United States to officiate the wedding. This story has renewed my faith in humanity. I’m sure you will join me in extending congratulations to Charlie and Star.  

Charles Manson obtains marriage license

The 80-year-old mass murderer would be allowed to wed in prison a 26-year-old woman who visits him and maintains several websites advocating for his innocence

Mass murderer Charles Manson has gotten a license to marry a 26-year-old woman who visits him in prison.

The marriage license obtained Monday by the Associated Press was issued 7 November for the 80-year-old Manson and Afton Elaine Burton, who left her Midwestern home nine years ago and moved to Corcoran, California, the site of the prison, to be near Manson. She maintains several websites advocating for Manson’s innocence.

The license does not specify a wedding date and indicates the couple has 90 days to get married or they will have to reapply.

Burton, who goes by the name “Star”, told the AP that she and Manson will be married next month.

“Y’all can know that it’s true,” she said. “It’s going to happen.”

“I love him,” she added. “I’m with him. There’s all kinds of things.”

Burton gave an interview a year ago to Rolling Stone magazine in which she said she and Manson planned to marry. But Manson, who became notorious in 1969 as the leader of a roving “family” of young killers, was less certain about tying the knot.

“That’s a bunch of garbage,” Manson said in the December 2013 interview. “That’s trash. We’re playing that for public consumption.”

Asked Monday about those comments, Burton said, “None of that’s true,” adding that they’re waiting for the prison to complete their paperwork.

California Department of Corrections spokeswoman Terry Thornton confirmed to the AP that the license had been transmitted to the prison.

Thornton said each California prison designates an employee to be a marriage coordinator who processes paperwork for an inmate’s request to be wed. In most cases, she said, the department of corrections approves of such weddings as “a tool of family reunification and social development”. But Manson is a unique case.

Burton said the wedding might have happened earlier if Manson did not have “some situations” at the prison.

Thornton explained that in February, Manson had three violations for possession of a weapon, threatening staff and refusal to provide a urine sample.

Burton said the prison holds marriages on the first Saturday of each month. She expects to be married in an inmate visiting room at the prison.

Thornton confirmed that Manson can have a wedding at the prison and invite an officiate from outside the prison to perform the ceremony.

He and his prospective spouse also would be allowed to invite 10 guests who are not inmates.

However, as a life prisoner with no parole date, he is not entitled to family visits, a euphemism for conjugal visits.

Why marry Manson under those conditions? Burton said it would allow her to get information not available to non-relatives.

“There’s certain things next of kin can do,” she said.

She said she believes Manson is innocent and will get a new trial.

Manson has been incarcerated since 1969 in the infamous Tate-LaBianca murders. He was a habitual criminal before that and spent most of his life in prison.

He and two women followers, Leslie Van Houten and Patricia Krenwinkel, remain imprisoned. Another follower, Susan Atkins, died of cancer behind bars.

They were convicted in the gruesome killings of actress Sharon Tate and four others at her estate on 9 August 1969, and grocers Leno and Rosemary LaBianca who were killed the following night.

Manson would not be eligible for parole until 2027.

Ebola Cure IMMINENT … Now That They’re Singing About It

Band Aid was a charity super-group featuring mainly British and Irish musicians and recording artists. It was founded in 1984 to raise money for anti-poverty efforts in Ethiopia by releasing the song “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” for the Christmas market that year.

The song was a resounding success … as poverty in Ethiopia was eliminated within six months. (Just as Farm Aid saved all American family farms … Wyclef Jean’s Hope For Haiti rebuilt every earthquake damaged home ……. and so on)

Here is the 1984 song. (Lyrics at end of article)

And, so, because singing eliminated poverty in Ethiopia, the group resurrected itself in order to sing about Ebola. The group feels encouraged because hey, wtf, they both start with the letter “E”. Experts expect a full cure before Thanksgiving. Here is the same song, slightly tweaked for 2014.

Once the ebola cure is announced the group (Band Aid) will disband. They will once again be resurrected 30 years later. They expect to do a benefit concert for the last remaining enclave of White People in America … somewhere deep in the Kentucky wilderness, with a new song this time, “Billy, Don’t Be A Hero”.

=================

It’s Christmas time, and there’s no need to be afraid

At Christmas time, we let in light and banish shade

And in our world of plenty, we can spread a smile of joy

Throw your arms around the world

At Christmas time

But say a prayer, pray for the other ones

At Christmas time, it’s hard but while you’re having fun

There’s a world outside your window, and it’s a world of dread and fear

Where a kiss of love can kill you, and there’s death in every tear

And the Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging chimes of doom

Well tonight we’re reaching out and touching you

No peace and joy this Christmas in West Africa

The only hope they’ll have is being alive

Where to comfort is to fear

Where to touch is to be scared

How can they know it’s Christmas time at all

Here’s to you

Raise a glass to everyone

And here’s to them

And all their years to come

Let them know it’s Christmas time after all

Feed the world, let them know it’s Christmas time again

Feel the world, let them know it’s Christmas time again

Heal the world, let them know it’s Christmas time again

 

 

Deluded Neegrow Trains Libtard Whites On Civil Disobedience

16 comments

Posted on 18th November 2014 by Stucky in Economy

I hope RE stops by to tell me how racist I am.

Rev. Osagyefo Sekou (neegrow Preacha, aka Community Organizer), a St. Louis native, but now lives in MA, trains a group of  “mainly white attendees–many who are at least 50 years old” on the fine art of civil disobedience. Brainwashing at its finest. Burn Fergy, Burn!!

==========================================================

SEKOU: — “Our task in part is, in addition to all the information is get a sense as to why we are here. We are part of the guiding principles for this movement. It’s militant non-violent civil disobedience. Can you please say that?”

ATTENDEES: — “militant non-violent civil disobedience.”

SEKOU: — “And we use the word ‘militant’ as opposed to the word ‘passive’ non-violent civil disobedience, because we are about a direct encounter with the state to create drama to show that we are willing to take a risk in confronting the state because of injustice. Right?”

ATTENDEES: — “Right.”

SEKOU: — “We break unjust laws, because it’s the morally right thing to do”

ATTENDEES: —“Yeah!”

SEKOU: —“That’s why we do it. And there’s a tradition of that.”

ATTENDEES: — “Yeah!”

SEKOU: — “And militant non-violent civil disobedience gave us the 8 hour work day.”

ATTENDEES: — “Yeah!”

SEKOU: —“It gave us women’s right to vote.”

ATTENDEES: — “Yeah!”

SEKOU: — “It gave us the possibility of me standing here in this room with you without the relative fear of arbitrary violent because this meeting would have been historically illegal 50 years ago.”

ATTENDEES: — “Yeah!”

SEKOU: —That’s what militant non-violent civil disobedience gave us.  We are angry, but we will not allow the anger to have the last word.”

ATTENDEES: —“Yeah!”

SEKOU: —“So what militant non-violent civil disobedience allows us to do is to create a container that we can channel it directly at the state, because this is not about bad apples. This is about a rotten system because you can be a good cop who doesn’t shoot black people but if you give out more tickets in Ferguson than there are actually people in Ferguson, that’s an evil system. So we are confronting an…”

ATTENDEES: — “evil system.”

SEKOU: —“This is not about an individual police or about individuals. This is about confronting an evil system. And the thing that guides us is love—not the kind of love that you see somebody and you think they’re cute—not that—deep abiding love. Say that.”

ATTENDEES: — “deep abiding love.”

SEKOU: — “That’s what guides us, because deep abiding love says you’re willing to go to jail for what you believe in. Deep abiding love says you’re willing to risk your life for what you believe in. That’s what deep abiding love does. Deep abiding love in the front of tanks and tear gas and pepper spray says you will not bow down. So we are guided by…”

ATTENDEES: —“Deep abiding love”

SEKOU: — “We are not confronting bad individuals but…”

ATTENDEES: — “an evil system.”

[At this point some attendees are asked to participate in an exercise involving locking arms while others play the police vociferously demanding they leave the area.]

SEKOU: — “How do you feel after that experience? Did you tense up? In those instances what’s the guiding principles?”

ATTENDEES: — “Deep abiding love.”

SEKOU: —“So when you feel the person next to you, you hold the line. You hold the line. One of the toughest things to do is if you are being advanced upon, if you sit, it’s harder for you to be broken up, right? So as they come for you this time, I want you to sit and lock.”

ATTENDEES: — “sit and lock”

 SEKOU: — “Look at all these white folks putting their bodies on the line for black people, because this is not a separate struggle. It is one struggle.”

A WHITE ORGANIZER— “For most white people we leave our houses everyday and we don’t have to worry about getting shot. We don’t have to worry about being assaulted. We don’t have to worry about being arrested. That’s not true for everybody in this country and that’s one of the reasons why we’re out here on the streets. ….. And I also think we’re not going to get change in this society unless white people are just a little bit afraid. Again, it’s okay to be a little bit afraid but just don’t be paralyzed in that fear.”

SEKOU: —“I want to dispel the myth of marauding groups—of black angry youths beating up white people. That has not been the case. There have been some selective instances of violence against individuals. We have to understand that some of these individuals are state agents. So some of the people that are doing this are explicitly or implicitly trying to make us look like we bad—violent people, but keep in mind 99 percent of these protests have been non-violent.”

 [Other locations were used as training spaces as well over the weekend. For example, organizers trained attendees to “shutdown” the town of Clayton if the grand jury does not indict Darren Wilson.]

Russia Threatens US with Nuclear War

Russian-Bobers

 

Russia has continually sent signals to these Western leaders that it can wage nuclear war. Russia keeps sending bombers into strategic places that can take out key cities in the USA and Europe. Even during the last NATO summit/Golf resort trip, two aircraft took off from an air base in western Russia, just east of the Russian city of Saratov. The aircraft, Tu-95 strategic bombers code-named Bear by NATO, flew northwest, skirting Iceland, Greenland, and Canada. They then turned on a heading straight toward the United States. This was what was called a “launch box” maneuver where just off the coast of the USA they would fire nuclear-tipped cruise missiles towards American cities and military bases.

ukraine-ethnic-divide-data

These provocative flights were timed to a NATO summit that was attended by President Obama in Wales. I have warned from the outset that Ukraine should have been divided and the Russian ethic regions should be surrendered to Russia. I restated this position just last August. I recommended that position since the start of the year because this was the ONLY way to defuse the crisis that would get worse and has. Let the people return as part of Russia. In Ukraine, they have always looked down on the East as sort of the uneducated hicks anyway. Why endanger the entire world over such a stupid issue?

Key-West

 

Had the agreement been reached to simply split the nation, then there would not have been the killings and death toll we see now. Instead of paying for bailouts, simply afford the means to relocate people from the East who wanted to remain outside of Russia.  This conflict is stupid. The is like waging nuclear war because Key West, Florida calls itself the Conch Republic that wants to secede from the USA.

What difference does it make is the rural backward region of Ukraine prefers Russia since they speak Russian. Let the people decide their own fate. Haven’t political leaders caused more wars, pain, and bloodshed trying to carve up the world into territorial fiefdoms?

The normal temperature in Philly on this date is 56 degrees. It’s currently 23 degrees, going to a high of 29 degrees. The low tonight will be 18 degrees. I froze my balls off walking to my office this morning. When oh when will I ever reap the benefits of global warming? Could one of you global warming numbskulls please let me know when Philly winters will become warmer?

For fuck sake, how could it be below freezing in Hawaii?

I guess I’ll have to wait for Time Magazine to be wrong again.

I’m still waiting for all those hurricanes created by global warming.
