Elitism and Fundamental Transformation

Obama fundamental transformation

Opinion by AAABTonto:

Whenever I hear a progressive or liberal speak I am in awe. Their perspectives and conclusions are not just different; they are utterly devoid of tangible reality. I can accept that they would favor socialism over capitalism, amoral versus moral and atheism versus creationism. They are entitled to their point of view and I respect that, but I am a conservative with libertarian leanings and I am entitled to mine.

What I have a problem with is that they do not reciprocate this concept. I am not entitled to my opinion. The progressive or liberal is a one-way street. My opinion is irrelevant or, even more bombastic; my opinion is oppressive—even criminal. Liberty does not have to be imposed, socialism does. The Democrats, liberal media and moderates on both sides of the aisle claim that the Right needs to “compromise,” but their definition of compromise means that I should just shut up and do it all their way. I am intolerant because I merely question their position on any given subject. I am an anarchist because I want to see a limited government in the original vision of the Founding fathers. I am an extremist because I believe in the literal and concrete stipulations that the Constitution enunciates. I am belligerent because I request that they show me facts instead of precedents. I am inferior because I prefer action to words.

Recently, Harry Reid made an appearance on the Rusty Humphries Show and he was asked about comments he made deriding the Tea Party and accusing them of being anarchists:


Harry Reid doubles down on calling Tea Partiers a bunch of anarchists

The Tea Party is not advocating anarchism and that is fact, Harry. I think Harry may have the Tea Party confused with the Occupy Wall Street crowd. Harry’s ridiculous statement is exhibit “A” in my contention here. He knows this isn’t true, but he is determined to paint his opponents in the worst light possible–the truth be damned. The progressives are so determined to fundamentally transform America from a constitutional republic into a socialist oligarchy that they are flagrantly denying truth to its face. They think they can say anything and their parrots in the MSM will will hammer it home as fact.

Broke back USA

Liberals look at the Constitution and read things that are not even there and in the same moment deny things that couldn’t be more succinctly written. President Obama has openly criticized the Construction because it defends the citizen from the government and makes no inclusions for what the government can “do to the citizen.” Progressives, liberals, Obama and his minions are “statists” and they have no use for the individual.

Examine their derision of Christianity and their ironic embrace of Islam. Christianity does not impose its will; it encourages others to follow the Gospel but does not “force” them to do so. Christianity promotes charity, forgiveness and self responsibility. Islam, on the other hand, commands its followers to fight those who do not believe the teachings of Muhammad. It oppresses women, condones sexual slavery, polygamy and wife beating. Women are not to be educated. Homosexuals are to be put to death. Thieves are to suffer the amputation of hands and feet on opposing sides of the body. Islam is a theocracy—the religion is the law and yet, liberals are more accepting of it than Christianity. Liberals will deny a Christians’ right to prayer before a graduation ceremony, but demand that an airport install foot baths for Muslim cab drivers. This is patently insane, but sanity doesn’t matter when “results” are the ultimate goal–regardless of cost.

Most insulting of liberal traits is their assumed superiority—a quality they share with Muslims. Conservative Christians are knuckle dragging Neanderthals who believe the fairytale laden “Bible”—they aren’t intelligent enough to comprehend the astute, ingenious methodology of the elite statists. Individualism is threatening to the state, which seeks to mollify the masses and make them into modular components for the elite to plug and play as they see fit.


Clarence Thomas: Obama ‘Approved By The Elites’

They love America—to death. If you question a liberal’s patriotism they will come unglued. They will immediately accuse you of being a fascist—something they don’t even know the definition of …Meanwhile, their President directs the government to buy General Motors and literally denies the rightful shareholders of GM stock to any compensation (fascism defined). There is your liberal patriotism; stealing from one person to give to another. Redistribution is “patriotic”?


Fundamental Transformation Is Not Patriotic. It Just Isn’t.

The problem we have is not that we are opposed by Democrats and progressive liberals, conservatives are even being dismissed by the Republican Party! We are, thank God, still in control of the House of Representatives–or are we? The House is charged with approving the funding for the government. John Boehner is supposed to be in control of the purse strings and could simply de-fund Obamacare and all the other reckless fiscal appropriations that Obama has forced on us against our will, but he does nothing! What the hell is Boehner’s problem? Boehner said:

“We have voted many times over the last 2 years that we’ve been in the majority to defund Obamacare, to repeal Obamacare, and we will do so again here in the House in the coming months,” Boehner said. “Our goal here is to cut spending. It’s not to shut down the government.”

“I believe that trying to put Obamacare on this vehicle risks shutting down the government,” Boehner continued. “That’s not what our goal is. Our goal here is to reduce spending.”

Really? Excuse me Speaker, but your efforts seem to have done damn little to thwart a $17 trillion deficit! And … Senator Reid thinks we aren’t spending enough. The government is spending us into oblivion and shutting it down, until we can get a handle on this, sounds like a damn good idea to me! We need a responsible government that respects the taxpayers who fund it. The Left is never going to think kindly of you, Speaker Boehner, so why not get something for their hatred of you? Shut it down and derail the “fundamental transformation” before it really is too late.

What is Boehner’s agenda?  Is he carrying water for the other team? Could he possibly find the spine to be critical of the President, who has bankrupt the country, abused his power and withheld information about Fast & Furious and Benghazi? Might it not be time to be critical of an administration whose State Department is intimidating employees from telling the truth about events surrounding the Benghazi  cover-up? Oh no, we better not make any waves and upset the beltway boat there on Capitol Hill. The NY Times might get upset.

The Coming Bold Transformation of the American City

Obama’s Brazen Cover-up Is Unchallenged by MSM

ambassador stevens death

Opinion by AAABTonto:

Obama’s dogmatic arrogance seems to have no limits. He has the media in his pocket, a corrupt Attorney General to vacate the rule of law, a whole host of unionized government bureaucracies covering his six and his army of czars willing to manipulate the cogs and wheels of power to insulate and fabricate whatever he deems necessary to forge his will.

Little by little the truth is seeping through the cracks of his deception, though. Five separate House Committees investigating the Benghazi attack issued a damning preliminary report this past week and their findings are more than disturbing. Like all things with the Obama administration, the answers beget more questions. Evidence illustrates that Hillary lied (right through her pearly whites) repeatedly, to Congress and the American people, about what she knew, what she did and what she didn’t to do. She utterly failed in her duties on September 11, 2012 resulting in the deaths of four Americans to include Ambassador Stevens. Their blood is on her hands.

benghazi_attack_us_politics_2012_09_12Adding insult to injury is the fact that the State Department is blocking specific lawyers from representing Benghazi whistle-blowers. In an interview on WMAL, Joe DiGenova said the State Department was blocking local lawyer Victoria Toensing from representing whistle-blowers of the 2012 Benghazi attacks.

“The Department of State is refusing to grant clearances to Victoria and other people who want to represent the whistleblowers in an attempt to prevent the testimony,” DiGenova said.


Joe DiGenova on WMAL 4-29-13

This is beyond incredible. I cannot even begin to fathom the nuclear uproar that would ensue if these actions were taking place beneath the helm of a Republican administration. I am almost rendered apoplectic, but I refuse to yield and you should too! Never in my life have I witnessed arrogance of this magnitude. We cannot let Obama get away with this incomprehensible travesty of justice.

It has been nearly eight months since the Benghazi attack and we have heard almost nothing out of the Obama administration except his original explanation of this and other events that day could be laid at the feet of a guy who made a lousy video that supposedly “insulted” Muslims worldwide. Then, while we were still recoiling from the Boston Marathon bombing, Obama claimed not to understand what ideology could have possibly motivated the bombers …Could we possibly get the truth for once?

NO!

Instead we are treated to Obama’s praise for a washed up NBA star who has come out of the closet claiming to be gay–how courageous …

It seems like we always have to talk about homosexuality, reproductive rights, racism, gun control or any number of Progressive social causes, but we never get to hear the truth. If we bring up the truth then we are intolerant, bigoted, racist, homophobic, Islamophobic extremists! We can’t put a convicted murderer to death, but we have to abort viable late term pregnancies. We can’t say an Islamic terrorist shot up Fort Hood–we have to call that work place violence. We can’t insult Muslims, but we have to remove every reference to God anywhere its found. We can’t teach children how to think for themselves; we have to teach them how to be a victim and to blame it on a  conservative. We have to “fundamentally transform” America from the Land of the Free into the Home of the Depraved …

Progressivism

From Hillsdale College’s American Heritage Online Course – Week 8


“Progressivism”

The Progressive movement in America dawned with the 20th century. Animated by a common dedication to statism, and influenced by the ideas of Darwin, self-identified Progressives believed that the problems associated with the urban and industrial revolutions required government to assume a more active and powerful role in the lives of citizens.

Were the Boston Bombers Religious Muslims?

Jay Smith confronts Muslims and attempts to debate them …


Were the Boston Bombers Religious Muslims?

From YouTube:

We all saw the events surrounding the Boston Bombings, but many people were asking whether these two brothers (Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev) were actually Muslims, who carried out the bombings for religious reasons. Jay decided to take these questions down to Speaker’s Corner two days after the brothers were killed and captured. Watch the video and see just how difficult it was for Jay to engage in this debate, concerning these questions. The Muslims, who are always challenging Jay to debate them, now seemed to be balking on this subject, and tried to take the challenge away from Islam and onto Christianity.

Den of Thieves

Opinion by AAABTonto:

The GOP is committing suicide. The go-along-to-get-along, beltway, elitist, moderate mentality is apparently in complete denial of their conservative base—indeed they have attacked Tea Party and even blamed them for Mitt Romney’s 2012 loss.

Frank Luntz, GOP message man and image consultant, recently spoke to University of Pennsylvania students and was asked about political polarization. His reply was to blame conservative talk radio:

“They get great ratings, and they drive the message, and it’s really problematic.”


Frank Luntz on Rush Limbaugh

Luntz had requested that his answer be “off the record”, and although the student who originally asked the question agreed to this,  Aakash Abbi, the student who recorded Luntz’ statement, did not. He subsequently forwarded it (a recording) to Mother Jones.

From the article:

In an op-ed for the Daily Pennsylvanian, Abbi outlined his reasoning for making and leaking the recording, explaining that “in a room filled with scores of independent students, ‘off the record’ is not a Patronus charm. Luntz may have felt that he was invited to speak candidly by acclimation, but I disagreed entirely.”

Frank Luntz has made a very successful career out of advising Republicans on the content of their message. He was asked one of the most important questions of the day in terms of American politics (“what is causing extreme polarization between the parties?”), and refused to speak freely. Why? Because doing so may harm his commercial interest. And this attitude is at the root of the problem. If influential GOP figures like Frank Luntz truly believe that the party’s media kingmakers harm the national interest but refuse to say so for fear of backlash, they knowingly work against the spirit of open and honest debate.

In other words, the people creating the “chilling effect” on discourse are not students like Abbi, but the very people Luntz was afraid to go on the record criticizing in the first place.

So Abbi , with the help of Mother Jones, is making the point that it is the fault of Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin for creating a “chilling effect” …  Voicing their opinion is their 1st Amendment right and Abbi, Mother Jones and Frank Luntz are going to have get over the “chilling effect.” I would venture to say that it is “chilling” to them because it is the truth.

head is going to explode 3And that is why the message that Limbaugh and Levin broadcast is “problematic.” It makes the GOP uncomfortable—it means they will have to get off their collective asses and do some work. I think the GOP is perfectly content being 2nd place in Washington, DC. To them, it’s all about perpetuating their corrupt, beltway, game-board strategy in which they continue to receive kickbacks and benefits, while pretending to be the foe of big government and the consolidation of federal power.

From Real Clear Politics:

FRANK LUNTZ: And they get great ratings, and they drive the message, and it’s really problematic. And this is not on the Democratic side. It’s only on the Republican side…[inaudible]. [Democrats have] got every other source of news on their side. And so that is a lot of what’s driving it. If you take—Marco Rubio’s getting his ass kicked. Who’s my Rubio fan here? We talked about it. He’s getting destroyed! By Mark Levin, by Rush Limbaugh, and a few others. He’s trying to find a legitimate, long-term effective solution to immigration that isn’t the traditional Republican approach, and talk radio is killing him. That’s what’s causing this thing underneath. And too many politicians in Washington are playing coy. (April 22, University of Pennsylvania College Republicans)

There is nothing about this latest attempt to legislate amnesty that Rubio has pledged allegiance to that is legitimate. It is sadly disappointing. I had a great deal of respect for Rubio, but he seems to have thrown his lot in with the go-along-to-get-alongers. This craptastic legislation was pasted together by Chuckie Schumer  and it is a “5 year plan” that says “if it doesn’t work at the end of 5 years then it gets turned over to a multi-border-state committee”; well, whoopity-doo! It isn’t going to work, and there will be 5 more years of untold millions of who-knows-whos scampering across the border and then ANOTHER COMMITTEE will try to solve it? How many years does THAT committee get to work on it?


Mark Levin grills Marco Rubio on immigration proposal

Build the damn fence and close the damn border already and be done with it!

This is what I am talking about. Any time someone speaks the truth or questions ANYTHING the Democrats want to do, then it is hate speech! Whoever said it is celebrating Hitler’s birthday in their basement and is a bigoted, homophobic, Islamohater! The truth is all too inconvenient to moderates and progressives.

Washington is den of thieves. Very few of them are truly vested in the best interests of America. They are perpetuating the “process” so they can continue to bilk us out of money and liberty to advance their own agendas. They’re in it for themselves.

I have to stop before my head explodes …

K9 Warriors

By AAABTonto:

As many of you know I work a 3rd shift manufacturing job operating a machine that finishes aluminum and stainless steel components for medical instruments. There isn’t much to choose from on the radio at that time of day, but the other night I was pleased to hear an interview with Mike Ritland, former SEAL Team 3 member and author of “Trident K9 Warriors: My Tale From the Training Ground to the Battlefield with Elite Navy SEAL Canines.”

The first real job I ever had was at an animal hospital and kennel where I learned a great deal about both dogs and cats. I was 14 years old. It was here at this animal clinic that I learned how amazing man’s best friend can be–but nothing close to what I learned when I heard Mike Ritland’s story. It brought back a plethora of memories and moved me to the point of wanting to share his story with you.

Mike is a former SEAL who trains dogs for military and police duties, but also operates a retirement home for the dogs they are unable to place with caretakers upon their retirement. During the interview on Coast to Coast AM, Mike talked about training elite Navy SEAL dogs.

SEAL dogs are similar to other working dogs, but what sets them apart is their determination to perform this unique kind of work in the most unimaginably distracting environments. Detailing one incident, he described how a SEAL dog was shot at point blank range in the chest by an insurgent, yet still managed to subdue and hold on to his target until his SEAL the team operatives arrived to take control. The dog was then evacuated out via a medical helicopter and treated by a surgeon just like any other soldier. The dog subsequently recovered, and was actually redeployed. He is now retired and resides at Ritland’s K9 Warrior Foundation.

I thought you would appreciate the amazing effort that goes into the training of these truly phenomenal creatures and the incredibly honorable tasks that they perform. I salute them and their handlers.
