The Soviet Files

This image was taken in the old Soviet city of Pripya. Pripya was a model Soviet city set up for the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. The sign and door on the left leads to the free drinks used to lure voters to come and cast their futile vote in the one party totalitarian system. The sign and door on the right leads them to the voting area. (or vice versa, as I do not read cryllic).

It was a practice adopted in many areas of the former Soviet Union to encourage participation in a sham of a system and one the citizens had long lost faith in. This sign was frozen in time as the city's inhabitants had to flee that fateful day, leaving all infrastructure and personal belongs as they stood. As was the case with most things in the USSR, payment came with vodka and a day off. The day after voting day became a national holiday so that the workers could recuperate after the days binge before. A drunk, cynical and work avoiding populace is an easy to control populace. The Soviets learned these lessons well and implemented them generously.

It is not much difference to the future the modern Democrat party has planned for the United States. They already entice voters with cigarettes and petty cash. They are doing the best they can by way of ACORN manufactured voter fraud to ensure one party rule and controlled opposition. The evidence mounts proving that today's progressives are yesterday's Soviets.

How & Why Communism Always Ends Badly For The Useful Idiots

The letter below by Cynthia McKinney to Obama perfectly illustrates what is happening to his support on the far left, social justice, nouveau communist wing of his party. These are people who were radicalized. Now the radicals, all hopped up on communist rhetoric of social justice and "peace" are turning against him.

Obviously, no sane leader, even one as ideologically pure and incompetent as Obama, is going to actually fully implement any of these ideas. However, these people are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli. They can not turn it off and by nature they are malcontents. They are people who find their salvation in airing grievances. They have been conditioned to find injustice under every rock.

It is at this point in history that they have typically out-lived their usefulness. It is about now when things start to get ugly. We have all the pieces in position. A megalomaniac and soulless leader in power. A leader willing to use small children to further his cult of personality. Barack Hussein Obama, mmmm, mmmm, mmmmm....Sinking approval ratings, rejection of his "five year plans", cover by a corrupt and complicit media. Every day he proves himself without sympathy or empathy. A man who has envisioned youth corps to be trained in his twisted Marxist world view. Also a man, who we can now see, as no intention to moderate, no Plan B and no room for humility.

No, I am not saying history will undoubtedly repeat itself in the here and now. I am only pointing out we have all the pieces in place. Maybe for the first time in our history.

Cynthia McKinney to Obama 'war criminal accessory': Immediate ceasefire, withdrawal, end drones

Open Letter to Obama: Please Bring Out Troops Home Now!

By Cynthia McKinney

November 22, 2009

Mr. President:

I am writing to urge you to announce an immediate cease-fire followed by a withdrawal of all US troops from Iraq and Afghanistan in the fastest way consistent with the safety of our forces.

I urge you to end the use of Predator drones that kill civilians.

I call upon you to cease all covert operations in Africa, Asia, and North and South America.

Too many of your military advisors are implicated in torture, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and crimes against the peace. Your Justice Department operates at the zenith of injustice, defending Bush Administration criminality in U.S. Courtrooms.

I wrote to you earlier suggesting that if you did not investigate the crimes of the Bush Administration, you would be viewed as their accessory. Sadly, war crimes and torture are now committed with your name on them.

Please bring our troops home now.

Cynthia McKinney

Less than 10% of Obama Cabinet Has Real World Experience

Ofcourse, we already know anyone prone to this ideology probably would not have any private sector experience. Most of the issues real people face in their day to day lives are just theory to them. They've never had to stretch a paycheck or work a second job to make the mortgage. That is why a $12 light bulb or an $900 electric bill does not deter them from achieving their goals.

The results of their failed ideology are also not real to them. They do not feel them so they are easy to dismiss. It is why the Obama's can thoughtlessly plan lavish parties while people scrape by in the worst economic climate in recent history. The American people through sheer dereliction of their duty as citizens have ceded control over their lives to people who have never left a campus or a cushy job provided to them by the pedigree of their name and connections.

We can see that the results are a disaster. Our governing bodies have become an adult day care center for a group of left wing theoreticians.

Are There No Men In Washington?

I forget the movie's title but I remember the scene. Fiction or not, it instantly made me love Ahmad Shah Massoud, the assassinated and much loved by many leader of the Afghani Northern Alliance. He looks to his American counter part and he asks, "Tell me, are there no men left in Washington, or all they all cowards?"

Where are the men in Washington? Where is the Republican leadership?

We have the corruption by the left in full view, ready to be exploited. I hear crickets chirping from the direction of the RNC.

1) Climategate
2) SEIU intimidation and vote fraud in California
3) incriminating ACORN documents

Is there a mission? A plan? A cohesive strategy afoot?

Or are nearly all of them compromised? Have they all been bought off by the globalist financiers of the global warming agenda?With a few exceptions such as James Inhofe and Ron Paul, the Republican party is acting like controlled opposition.

That's my assumption until proven otherwise. They cannot all be this spineless.

Healthcare is Here!

Wow, shouldn't we all be giddy about this? Oh, that's right I will be the guy paying for it. That makes us months closer to Going Galt as they say. It's time for anyone with any means to do what they can to protect what they have and do what they can to make less. Capital flight, already high, is going to be unstoppable now. Look for Americans to find innovative ways to escape this monstrous system. I have already read ideas of setting up medical cruise ships on international waters.

Sure, it isn't a done deal but rarely does a bill make it out of committee fail. The options from this vantage are not pleasant. This nightmare passes and the country goes bankrupt, this nightmare passes and the country falls into civil war, or it fails when the two branches cannot agree.

I’m surprised by how little the first two options bother me.

For My Good Friend MOTUS

Somehow, these got past you. I needed to bring it to your attention. You'll probably be working damage control all weekend. Sorry!

Losing a War You Won Centuries Ago

Spain's first Islamic party is set to run in a local election in 2011. Islam is Spain's second largest religion, making up only 2.3% of the total population. The Renaissance and Union of Spain Party, headed by Mustafa Barrach, a former journalist and Arabic professor in Granada. The party seeks to attract the country's 1,300,000 Muslim residents in Spain but also gather supports from immigrants who total 10% of the Spanish population. With moves afoot to legitimize illegal alien residents it could well put that number over two million and growing.

What does this mean for the future of Europe, as it is certainly showing us a trend? There is a huge clash of civilizations on the European continent. Large and largely uninterested in integrating Muslim populations grow and continue to out breed the indigenous birthrates. Although, there are new statistics that show an uptick in the indigenous populations and a slower line of growth in the Islamic populations.

What will the introduction of Islamic political parties mean to the dynamic of Europe and Islam? It might not be all bad. No doubt, the inception of one party will spread across all western European countries with sizable Muslim populations. It will "out" Islam for the political system that it is. There is no give to Caeser what is Caesar's in Islam. The church and the state are one. There is no higher authority than Islam. This will be out in the open for all to see.

It will create a clear line of delineation between those Muslims who desire to integrate and be part of European society and those that choose to identify themselves with Islam first and foremost. At that point, Europe will have some decisions to make. None of them pleasant. My personal belief is that the most peaceful resolution we will see on the European continent will be areas of autonomy for the Islamic populations. I think it is the most likely considering the softness of the average European and his contemporary level of willingness to sacrifice, especially in blood. One thing is certain, the two can not coexist.

It will be devastating to the socialist parties. Similar to American politics, the socialists rely on keeping the minorities on the plantation. Never improving their lot but having a captive demographic. Anything that disempowers the socialists is positive at least in the long term. They wreak havoc wherever they are allowed to consolidate power and they are the very reason we even have to discuss this topic.

Islam will then no longer have the cloak of the socialist movements to hide behind and the socialists will no longer have their votes. I am watching with much interest just how the softer and welfare state breast fed 21st century European attempts to remove the modern Ottoman presence.

Core Convictions

I had a fellow conservative tell me Sarah Palin "prostituted herself by going on Oprah’s show" yesterday. I could not disagree more. Palin, every time she steps into the lion's den, amazes me with her bravery and courage. Most conservatives do not have enough courage of their convictions to speak up against the office liberal bully let alone take on the entire Washington power structure, both Republican and Democrat, single handedly. She arms herself with nothing but her core convictions. That is what having core convictions should be all about.

Everyday Sarah Palin is out there, the leftists who have devoted so much time and energy into destroying her become a little smaller. She is David to their Goliath. As conservatives we should witness their impotence and savor it. Every day she is left standing and stronger, we should draw strength from ourselves.

She walks into the eyes of the storm and comes out with her convictions in tact. She isn't knotted into a pretzel to try and meet them half way as so many "conservatives" do. She does not seek their acceptance on their terms. She only lays out who she is and what she believes and doing so tries to weave a web of invitation to join her.

We need more people made of the stuff of Sarah Palin. We could learn a lot watching the bravery of this woman. We'd do well trying to emulate it. They have thrown everything they have at her and she is still standing, stronger than before and with a smile on her face. If this little lady from Wasilla can stand up to the leftists, we can do the same in our schools, in our communities, at the deli counter, by the water cooler, etc. She shows us, through it all, they aint nothing you don't give them the power to be.

Spot the ONLY man in the Photo

I will give you a hint, he's not on the right.

There have been several signs of a growing rift between the Obama administration and Israel. This week, Netanyahu leaving the Whitehouse without either party giving comment, was just one more indication that Obama is getting ready to send Israel to it's place under the bus.

Obama is not fit to lick the boot heels of Prime Minister (ah, it warms my heart to use those words again) Benjamin Netanyahu, that much is obvious. Netanyahu is a statesman who understands the threats to his tiny nation. Obama is an appeaser and despiser of the people he claims to represent. Two men who could not be more different.

There is zero common ground between a man who believes Iran's mullahs can somehow be reasoned with and man like Netanyahu who understands the belief system of the apocolyptic jihad, the second coming of the 12th imam and it entails. We are led to believe they are at an impasse over Israeli settlements. It is safe to assume it goes much deeper than this.

Netanyahu knows that Israeli National Security is in mortal danger with a terrorist sympathizing administration in power in the United States. He also knows that "diplomacy" with the mullahs in Iran is a complete waste of time, which is something any defender of western civilization is short on. Netanyahu knows, ultimately, at some point, Israeli will be forced to confront this threat by themselves or engage in some very strategic and critical thinking using the best problem solving skills the Mossad has.

Obama is playing with the big dogs now, conspiracy theories aside. This is not Rahm and some other two bit Chicago thugs hatching up a shake down of a land developer in Illinois. This is the big leagues. Netanyahu is nothing if he is not a survivor, both physically and politically. This can be evidenced by the fact that he's still breathing oxygen, no small feat for an Israeli Prime Minister. My money is on the only leader left of the free world.

Some Things Just Need Addressin'

This outfit would be one of them. What the hell is that? Part mechanic on the bottom half? Part Sasha or Melia's puffy shirt. Roy Orbison's hair. Every tone of grey covering the color spectrum. Untucked t-shirt. Is there no one this woman can trust that will tell her the truth? No one can be this fashion challenged. Is she drunk? Legally blind?

Ft. Hood

There are many who are very quick to ensure that the terrorism label is not given to the incident at Ft. Hood. I think it is more appropriate to call it an act of war and to call Hasan a foot soldier. He died in the line of duty in his call of Jihad and the Holy War. He died killing, mainly, soldiers of the opposing army. Although he wore the uniform of those same soldiers his words and his deeds made it clear what side of the war he owed his allegiance.

Whether or not we are engaged in a war with radical Islam, radical Islam is engaged in a war with us. Their spokesmen have repeatedly told us as much. Their followers tell us daily in chat rooms all over the internet. We interrogate and apprehend their soldiers regularly abroad and in our cities. This is the truth whether or not the White House, the military chain of command or a sizable chunk of Americans will admit it. We now know from more than one example, the seeds of radical Islam have been sown far and wide within our society and within the military.

The policy of the American leadership seems to be a game of whack-a-mole and hope that they can keep these incidents spaced out enough so as to not have to take any decisive action. As long as they happen on small scales and happen relatively infrequently, I believe they think they can control public outrage and reaction. It seems to be a strategy that is working. However, time does not appear to be their friend.

Try as they might, politically correct smoke and mirrors can not replace the truth and reality. Next time it may be a school as in the manner of Beslan, Russia or an attack on the magnitude of 9-11. The spin and psychobabble will no longer have the market appeal as it has today and the American anger will not be as rational or as manageable.

Diversity Trumps National Security

"As horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse." -- Army chief of staff General George Casey

To pick solely on General Casey would be disingenuous. It would be the height of naivety to think ridding our armed services of General Casey would brighten our prognosis. Although, he may very well share this belief, he is just following orders. Do any of us believe that the Obama administration would put anyone in that position who would have any other mind set?

What is Casey really saying here? Is he telling us in not so many words that we need to accept that there will be casualties in the left's war on American tradition? Basically, in a nutshell, yes. For diversity over all, we will be expected to accept a payment of toll in blood.

Everything is Free but Nothing is Readily Available

Or so the old saying went about the former Soviet Union. Most Americans do not know and many would not even care the the former Soviet Union was the first country to have free healthcare as a "right" for all written into it's constitution. With the revolution and the pollyannic belief that everyone could be made equal came the dismantling of what was the old Russian medical system into the new system ushered in by the Bolsheviks.

First let us remember that the Russian Revolution occurred in 1917. Life spans were shorter and life on the whole was harder. The system as it stood was basically a free market system of sorts. Doctors, who were highly educated and respected, were guaranteed a high standard of living. The people paid for the services. Doctors sometimes gave their services freely or accepted whatever could be offered as payment- livestock, leatherwork, food, etc.

Was it perfect? Is anything? A little known fact is that the Russian medical system and Russian medical research in the early 1900s was internationally recognized.

Usher in Lenin and the Bolsheviks who tear it all down. Oh boy, is this ever starting to sound familiar? They tear it all down to rebuild it. Now everyone is equal and has access to the same medical care. The greedy doctors and the greedy rich can no longer have the best of this system. The system is gone. The private clinics are gone.

The doctors are no longer the best and the brightest but are chosen but virtue of status in the Soviet system. Yes, some animals were more equal than others. Enrollees into medical school were chosen by social class —worker, peasant, or intellectual. Not long after the Soviet affirmative action system was expanded to include gender and ethnic classifications also. Every class, gender, and ethnic group had a quota for admission into institutions of higher learning.

All this should be sounding very, very familiar by now. Very familiar.

Rather than choosing a physician, you were appointed to medical facilities in your area. You had no choice who you saw. Instead of the market dictating salaries and medical expenditures, they were now part of a fixed budget expense in the Soviet balance sheet. Doctors were put on fixed state salaries and required to see as many people as they saw fit or didn't see fit. What did it matter anyway? Getting rid of a bad doctor or a drunk doctor was virtually impossible in the now completely unionized, state owned system.

Did the Bolsheviks or their class of elites use this medical system? Ofcourse not. They had access to their own, special medical care complete with western technologies and medicines. They were not going to be subjected to the low par and filthy conditions of the people's system. As a side note, our leadership does not even give the pretense of pretending to subject themselves to the system they are forcing upon us.

No Soviet citizen really knew much else. As a closed society, they were told they had the best of the best. They were told how fortunate they were because the American capitalist system had people dying in the streets. Those that knew better were either disposed of or kept their mouths shut to avoid being disposed of.

In short, by the end of the 20th century Soviet Russia had one of the poorest medical systems in the world. Now imagine the Soviet medical system in a world where say it could only be held up in comparison the the DHS in Britain or the Canadian system? Suddenly the bar is much lower and that is by design. One day it will be our children who believe they are receiving the best of the best and there will be nothing exceptional to compare with the substandard. It will be the norm if this is not stopped and, as was often the case in our history, it is the cognizant 30 percent among us that are the last vestige.

"When she walks in a room, folks just explode"

These would be the words of newly re-elected Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) when speaking of Sarah Palin. It is no secret how the conservative base feels about Sarah Palin. It is also no secret that she injected what little life John McCain's campaign had into it. Myself, an Arizonian, who had never and would never pull a lever for John McCain sheepishly carted myself to the polls last November 4th and with much enthusiasm filled in the little circle next to her name, wishing his name were absent.

Now, now we have a senior Whitehouse official (surmised to be Axelrod by HotAir) claiming a 2-0 victory against Sarah Palin. You just can not make this stuff up. Is there any precedent for this? Has there ever been a sitting POTUS at war with not only an entire news organization, half the country AND his defeated Vice Presidential candidate while solidly frozen in a state of inaction when faced with decisions to be made in real, live shooting wars? I have to guess not and that this is unchartered territory. Can you imagine Karen Hughes coming out the days after 9-11 and railing on about how Bush is 2-0 against Joe Lieberman?

State schooled, redneck Sarah scares the pants off of them. And she is free to do it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, thanks to the short-sighted and not so forward thinking Democrats making it impossible for her to do her job in Alaska.

The beauty of Palin is she is young and has many years to gain experience and credibility. In the meantime, she is a highly effective force when it comes to energizing conservatives, focusing the light on Obama and the Democrat misdeeds, clearing out the RINOs, bringing in the bacon and showing the Democrats for what they are.

We do not know who the candidate will be in 2012. My hunch is it will not be Sarah Palin. Not yet. Until then, we still get to savor her effectiveness and sleep well knowing that lil' ol' Sarah and her Facebook account holds as much or more political influence than that of the POTUS. I can see their defeat from my house and Sarah Palin is instrumental to making it happen.

Do we really, really need moderates?

I am talking about the wishy, washy convictionless, easily malleable . Does the Republican party really need them to win elections? To some extent we do. However, I do not think we need as many as we have been lead to believe we need.

What we do need is to get that large chunk of conservatives to the polls. We need the conservatives. As many as we can get. We do not get conservatives to vote by appealing to moderates or liberals. It just does not work that way.

When they speak of the independent vote, many, if not most, are conservatives. The critical factor dictating the future of the nation is not party membership, but adherence to certain philosophical and ideological principles. If they agree with our platform, maybe 80 percent of the time, they are worth working to keep. If not, we can not stray from our convictions to attract them. The cost is too high.

Moderates are like spoiled teenagers. When times are good, they feel confident and test their boundaries. When times are bad, they run back to the adults. They look to the stability the conservatives provide. As the pendelum shifts, so does their loyalty. You can't build a party catering to them.

As conservatives, we have to remember we are not going to win every election. We can live up to our principles and work from there. We must remember that every step is a building block. The great things that Reagan acheived did not happen overnight. There will be setbacks along the way. It was a good night last night. We still have much work to do.

Republicans and Stockholm Syndrome

What is it with Republicans and Stockholm Syndrome? You see it time and time again. I am specifically thinking about Newt Gingrich and his endorsement of Dede Scozzafava in the upstate New York -23 district. I understood his "big tent" reasoning but he continued to dig his heals in even after Hoffman overtook Dede in the polls and even after more and more disconcerting facts about her came to light. Scozzafava is no moderate Reublican, she is a out and out statist.

Only when she left the race and endorsed the Democrat did Newt finally admit "regret" with his decision. This would not be his only lapse of judgement. I can recall video of Newt buddying up to San Fan Nan in twisted agreement over the threat of climate change. It is safe to say Newt's political days are over. Kaput. We are turning out the lights on you, Newt. Fox News commentator? Sure. Presidential Material? Not so much.

Republicans all too often fall prey to the syndrome of Stockholm. The beltway does something to them but I see it all around me as well. They develop an undeniable hunger to be respected by the Beltway Establishment and their "smart" and less than tolerant of any other views liberal friends. What non-leftists will never understand, it seems, if you do not share their world view liberals will always hate you and will never accept you. You are only as good as the last issue you agreed with them on.

So many ask, "the blue print for conservative victory is right in front of them, why don't they follow it". They do not follow it because it takes guts. They are afraid of being called racists, bigots, homophobes, religious fanatics and whatever else is in the liberal playbook. It has not changed in decades and it works because the Republican leadership refuses to fight it.

It is much easier to go long to get along. Especially when you have an opponent who so readily dives into the mud pit and you are worried about getting your new white shirt dirty.

The American Oligarchy

The RINO Wing of the Republican party, particularly the Bush family, is busy grooming it's own Barack Obama. I have already had these thoughts about the role they intend for George Prescott Bush. The fact that he is shipping off "for war" at the ripe, old age of 33 as Lieutenant in the Navy Reserve, assigned to an intelligence unit, pretty much solidifies my suspicions.

It will be portrayed as though "P" as he is called (very original) is shipping off to war. That should insult your sensibilities. He's not going to war. He'll be positioned as an intelligence officer sitting safely behind a desk shuffling paper somewhere in the rear without ever having fired a weapon. Like his uncle, he will get his credentials as a warrior without seeing battle. His role will be exaggerated to his political benefit.

The really convenient thing about "P" is that he happens to be, imagine this, half Mexican. He is the offspring Jeb and his Mexican born wife Colomba. The catapulting of Prescott into the political arena fits right into the world of identity politics we have allowed them to build for us. It certainly looks like the Bush family had a long term vision while "W" was embracing the invasion of our southern border and desire to grant amnesty of up to 20 million illegal aliens, most from Mexico.

An oligarchy is a form of government where most or all political power effectively rests with a small segment of the society. Oligarchies, often found in Latin America, are generally controlled by a few powerful families whose children are raised and groomed to be heirs of the power of the oligarchy. It is rarely, if ever, to the betterment of those governed. You won't find a strong middle class; an oligarchy is usually characterized by a very small upper or elite class and a very vast lower class. They govern in secrecy.

It would sure be a lot simpler to shift away from the shining city on a hill if a good quarter to a third of your population knows of no other governing system and is completely at home with this type of governance. Even easier if they know nothing of your values or traditions.

As Americans we need to reject this notion of breeding through pedigree into the power structure. We have already seen the fruits of this system: worthless rich patricians with no viable life experience supported by parents, family name, ivy league education and whatever else until they can worm their way into politics, which is one of the few areas where they are employable. It's true of the Bushes, the Gores, the Clintons, the Kennedys, etc. People who, in a sane world, could not get elected as dog catcher.

We need leadership. We need leadership that will put American interests first. We are a nation of 300 million people, we can do better than the families listed above.
