MICHAEL OBERNDORF IS SPOT ON

Are They Insane, or Just Stupid?

 

I go through periods, particularly during election campaigns, when I stop talking and just listen to what others in the media, left and right, are saying, and to what the public reaction to their “conventional wisdom” is. This time around, I am appalled, though hardly surprised, at what I’ve heard.

 

As expected, the leftist “mainstream” media is censoring the news so that Clinton, Obama, and all Democrat policies and actions are made to appear overwhelmingly popular and successful, and everything about Trump, conservatives, and non-Establishment Republicans is sneeringly negative. They have been doing this sort of Nazi/Soviet/Maoist propaganda-as-news for years, but lately, it has escalated, nearly to the point of hysteria. Sorta like Hillary making a campaign speech. In any case, there is a desperation evident that I have never seen in the past that appears to be not unlike dogs howling just before an earthquake.

 

Unfortunately, we are hearing the same sort of lies and distortion coming from the Republican Establishment – the Political Class or Ruling Elite, as they seem to see themselves. As Rush Limbaugh astutely noted, this self-appointed New Aristocracy of the Right is angrier at Donald Trump than at Obama and Clinton. And sadly, far too many self-styled conservatives in the electorate have bought the crap being peddled.

 

Donald Trump has never claimed to be a Conservative (with a capital “C”), or a liberal, or a moderate. He’s a businessman, and a very successful one. But perhaps more importantly, he is also something accurately described by a word that all the Purveyors of Wisdom on the Right seem to have forgotten. Donald Trump is a consummate pragmatist.

 

Trump understands that to succeed in a complex and highly competitive world, you need to know how to be flexible when necessary, and how and when to stand your ground. This is clearly a skill that is almost totally absent from today’s politics. And it is one that we desperately need. We have allowed the Democrats, even when in a minority, to run roughshod over our economy, doubling the national debt in less than eight years, destroying our healthcare system, our military, our public education, allowing our country to be overrun with illegal alien criminals and Muslim extremists, turning our revenue service and environmental protection agencies into twisted, job and economy destroying political tools, corrupting our justice system, our courts, and our law enforcement, and worst of all, willfully and with apparent impunity, trashing the Constitution and the Rule of Law. And this brings us to the glaringly obvious, completely undeniable point: We cannot survive, as a free, capitalist, constitutional, democratic republic, even four more years of this. Do these Never Trump geniuses not understand that the next president will put anywhere from three to five new Justices on the Supreme court, able to either support the Constitution as written, or destroy it completely? Are they insane, or just plain stupid?

 

Trump is not, repeat, not, a part of the political establishment. He is independently wealthy and beholden to no one. He clearly and unashamedly loves America. These are the characteristics that we need in the people we elect to public office. And if we are going to succeed in Making America Great again, we need to clean the professional politicians out of government at all levels, starting with local offices, and replace them with honest, hard-working citizens with a genuine willingness to serve the people, not themselves and The Party. There are folks like that out there running for offices, if you take the time to look.

 

For example, Joe Danna is a veteran law enforcement officer in Harris County, Texas (Houston), running for the office of Constable:

 

I am a proud 2nd Generation of Danna Families born and raised in Precinct          One. My law             enforcement work for over two decades has provided police          skills and experience that have             made Precinct One a safer place to live        and work I’m asking for your vote of confidence &   support to elect me          as your Constable. You have my word today that I am ready for the job and          the huge responsibility that comes with it.

 

My commitment to you is very simple. As Constable, I will lead and manage         the Department          with discipline, fairness and a strict chain of command to           insure accountability from     supervisors, to maximize our efforts to PROTECT          and SERVE the citizens and businesses in       Precinct One.

 

Who is Joe Danna?

  • Born, raised, married, educated and employed, all in Precinct One
  • Christian, son, brother, husband, father, provider, public servant
  • Learned the values of hard work and honesty at a young age
  • Personal fitness and a healthy life style plays a major role in Joe’s life
  • Computer techie
  • Pet lover
  • Black-belt in Shorin-Ryu Karate and various Japanese weapons

            What Joe has Accomplished?

  • Advanced Peace Officer
  • Helped in every division at the Constables Office
  • Police motorcycle skills, first approved Deputy to ride motorcycles
  • Wrote, implemented and managed grants through Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) for its Selective Traffic Enforcement Programs (STEP)
  • Filed and executed juvenile, & traffic warrants and search warrants, that lead to the conviction of suspects for criminal activities
  • Appointed as liaison to the Houston Independent Auto Dealers Association (HIADA)
  • Worked with FBI, Harris County Sheriff’s Department (HCSO) Houston Police Department (HPD) and Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to increase awareness and reduce crime in Precinct One
  • Involved with numerous undercover stings and sweeps with TXDOT, HCSO and DPS
  • Called on by TXDOT to help train HPD officers to enforce the laws of offering/selling illegal vehicles otherwise known as Curbstoning
  • Provided police security escorts for Hurricane Katrina evacuees
  • Chosen by the Houston Texans, NFL visiting teams and other local sports organizations to provide police motorcycle escorts. Due to his excellent reputation as a people person, he is known for working well with other law enforcement agencies to provide police motorcycle escorts for VIP and celebrities
  • Worked hand and hand with the Auto Dealers in Houston not only with the issue of Curbstoning but in the unique area of law enforcement the dealers feel are invaluable to their businesses
  • Effectively used his technology background to investigate cybercrimes and fraudulent check cases, obtaining and executing search warrants which is unheard of from a civil deputy in the Constables office

Joe Danna is not unique. There are many like him already running, and many more who would be willing. We need all of them. Simply electing a president without the elected officers below to support him, will change little. We need to completely clean house, dump the corrupt, self-serving incumbents and replace them with honest, patriotic, ordinary citizens. We can do it. We MUST do it.

WAY OVER THE LINE BY MICHAEL OBERNDORF

Way over the Line

 

When are Americans, aka, We, the People, going to draw a red line in the sand for the Liar-in-Chief, the Fraud in the Rainbow House, the Lead-From-Behind taqiyyah Muslim and his apologists? How often are we going to sit quietly while he covers up for Muslim terrorists who savagely murder innocent Americans? How many more times must we allow him to imply that we are bigots for seeing Islam for what it is: a political/judicial system known as Shariah that uses “religion” to get submission by its followers, that is spread by barbaric violence and savage threats?R

 

We know full well that he despises conservative, white Americans, calling them bitter people who “cling” to their guns and Bibles. Bibles, by the way, that he never calls “Holy” as he always does the Koran. We also know that he has spent at least $2,000,000 dollars hiding his past – his identity, who he really is – from the American people. A huge part of that past is that he was, and still is, a wannabe Marxist revolutionary, albeit a knee-jerk one. His trip to Cuba, his most recent stop on the Grovel Before Our Enemies Tour, made it clear that in spite of trying to win over communists like Xi, Putin, and the Castro brothers, who actually know what brutal, totalitarian Marxism really is, he has neither impressed nor fooled anyone. The same goes for his groveling before the Iranians, the Saudis, and ISIS.

 

And to top this all off, the “Leader” of the Democrat Party had the temerity to claim that Donald Trump knows nothing about foreign policy.

 

The really sad thing is that both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are in their own ways just as bad, and just as dangerous. Which brings us, dear readers, to what may be the Final Fork in the Road.

 

America has, for a change, two candidates for the Republican nomination – Donald Trump and Ted Cruz – who are qualified and capable of turning the country around, and returning her to constitutional government and greatness. They are both qualified and capable of repairing the economic damage that Obama, the Democrats, and their RINO co-conspirators have done over the past 15 years. Neither is perfect, by any means, but both, for a real change, have the interests of We, the People, at heart.

 

“Great,” says you! “Perhaps not,” says I. “What could be possibly be wrong with this,” says you? “Subversion and treason in our own party,” says I.

 

Instead of rejoicing that nomination of either of the two candidates is likely to culminate in a landslide victory over either of the two communists running as Democrats, the Misleadership of the Republican Party, aka, the elitist, corrupt, RINO Establishment, is fighting the nomination of either harder than they have ever fought the Democrats. They are planning, almost openly, to rig the Republican Convention so that one of their RINO Guaranteed Losers is the nominee. Recall, these are the geniuses  who forced Romney, McCain, Dole, Bush the First, and Ford on us. And these are the same geniuses who refused to fund Tea Party supported candidates for Congress, leading to the defeat of a lot of good, honest, patriotic conservatives. At some point, one must assume that this was the desired outcome all along.

 

Over the past 15 years, the Congress and what has passed for “president,” have repeatedly passed laws and instituted policies that have been loudly and clearly opposed by large majorities of our citizens. Obamacare and Executive Amnesty spring to mind, as well as thousands of job- and economy-killing regulations from unconstitutional agencies like the EPA. Republicans could have stopped all of this by a number of methods, but the Misleadership chose to dither and cave, dither and cave, dither and cave. Again, one must assume that caving was the desired outcome all along.

 

It is undeniable that the Republican Party has sold out, though probably years ago, to Big Money Fascism, just as the Democrat Party has, too. They are no longer afraid of We, the People not electing them, and thus, we are seeing a culmination of a long-term strategy to subvert the entire electoral system. Democrats, it is now clear, are not the only experts at election fraud.

 

We, as a nation, are faced with the all-too-real possibility of a rigged national election, and the disenfranchisement of a majority of our people. It’s obvious that it’s not just Hillary cheating Bernie out of the nomination. To be offered not Trump or Cruz by the Republicans, but some corrupt, bought-and-paid-for, neo-fascist, political hack is NOT acceptable. If that’s what they try to foist upon us, I, for one, will either write in a candidate, or not vote at all. If the country is to be destroyed, let’s get it over with quickly. The consequence of a Democrat communist or a RINO fascist is ultimately the same: destruction of free, capitalist, constitutional America and the onset of civil war. We are already seeing violence increasing from the left. We would do well to remember the words of Virgina patriot Patrick Henry:

 

“It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace– but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!“

HEADS- THEY WIN; TAILS-WE LOSE- by MICHAEL OBERNDORF

Heads – they win; tails – we lose

 

For over 20 years now, many conservatives have asserted that there is no difference between the two parties, that the Republicans and the Democrats are two sides of the same coin. Michael Reagan said one day on his radio show back in the mid-1990s that the difference between Republicans and Democrats is that it takes a Republican about three weeks longer to become a communist. The only thing that has changed since then is that they have added fascist and Islamic jihad apologist to the mix.

 

Those of us who have not suffered severe blows to the head recall that when Gore and Kerry ran for president, Democrats made a huge issue of the national debt. Obama stridently insisted that the debt under Bush was “unpatriotic”.  In 2001, the debt stood at a whopping $5,792,000,000(that’s five trillion, seven-hundred ninety-two billion) which amounted to 54.8% of our total gross domestic product (GDP) at the time. However, since then, the Democrats, with the willing help of the Republicans, have increased the debt to $18, 138,000,000 (that is eighteen-trillion, one-hundred thirty-eight billion), with an added ½-trillion just since the last Republican cave on the debt ceiling only a couple of months ago. This now is 101.7% of our total GDP. In other words, we now owe more than we produce. We seem to be competing with Greece and Spain. We are being driven toward economic collapse by the members of both parties in our own elected government.

 

Meanwhile, Obama and the congressional lackeys of the New World Order – this is the Big Money Donor class we hear about occasionally – have followed their instructions and cut spending for the military, forced homosexuals and “transgenders” on it, forced out hundreds of patriotic, non-leftist field-grade officers, and “laid off” tens of thousands of regular troops. What we are left with is a diminished defense capability that has many national security experts seriously concerned.

 

Now, on top of this, the above mentioned criminal cabal in Washington is in the process of finishing the forced inundation of America with criminal aliens, terrorists, and Muslims who will only obey Shariah law, not the Constitution. It will take very little to tip us into internal chaos, and thus, vulnerability to “intervention” from outside. Think it can’t happen? Think about this:

 

The chaos caused by communist rioters like Black Lives Matter and the “Occupy Movement”,      internal terrorist attacks, an out of control crime wave, and a skyrocketing murder rate becomes the rationale for Obama to declare martial law. The chaos and martial law cause the economy to collapse.      We default on our national debt payments. China, our largest real creditor decides in must “intervene” to protect its economic interests, i.e., its massive loans to us that the chaos keeps us from being able to repay, and invades us to “restore order”.

Who, pray tell, is going to stop them? Given what we’ve seen from the Washington Cabal, they will most likely order our military to aid and abet them in crushing us under the hob-nailed boot of totalitarian collectivism. And while many serving today would refuse, by then, it will be too little, too late. For you see, while Obama and his willing Democrat and Republican accomplices have been tearing down our military, China has been going full speed ahead at building up theirs (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-11-26/china-announces-military-overhaul-to-make-army-more-combat-ready).

 

There was a time when the Republicans were real patriots, willing to stand up and speak out, to take action to stop those who would destroy America and our way of life, men like Ronald Reagan, Barry Goldwater, Dwight Eisenhower, Strom Thurmond, Jesse Helms, and Joseph McCarthy. There are a few in Congress today, but only a few. Money appears to have nearly totally corrupted the system, leaving almost no one willing to live up to their oath of office to protect, defend, and obey the Constitution, the Constitution which requires them to provide for the defense of our country and her citizens.

 

If the Age of Miracles is indeed not over, and a major miracle happens that allows us to make it to November, 2016, without a descent into chaos, and the Washington Cabal doesn’t commit massive election fraud, it is a virtual certainty that either Donald Trump or Ted Cruz will win the presidency in a landslide. If we can also give them a genuinely conservative House and Senate by electing a majority of representatives like Trey Gowdy and a majority of Senators like Mike Lee, we just might be able to avoid going over the edge, and return America to her former greatness. If not, I feel really, REALLY sorry for our children and grandchildren.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH by MICHAEL OBERNDORF

Enough!

 

It seems as if it’s at least once a week over the past seven years that one conservative columnist or another, and often several, lists the crimes and blundering of Obama and his administration. Everything these radicals have done has served to undermine the Constitution, the Rule of Law, our traditional culture, Christianity, our economy, our sovereignty, and our national security. Had they been white conservatives, any one of these actions would have gotten them, a) impeached; b) investigated by a Special Prosecutor; c) indicted; or, at the least, d) driven to resign. But since We, the People no longer have any real representation in Washington, none of this has occurred.

Our government has been taken over in a silent coup by radical Marxists, neo-fascists, and self-serving con men, posing as elected representatives from both parties. Over and over and over and over,  the ruling “elite” has ignored the fact that 60 to 90% of the American people have opposed the laws and policies that they have gone ahead and shoved down our throats, anyway. These have been discussed in excruciating detail time and again in the past, so I will not repeat what you should already know.

Instead, I want to look at what’s happening today, right now. The free world, aka, the civilized West, is being overrun by a barbarian invasion (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44vzMNG2fZc). It is being passed off as “refugees”, but the vast majority of the invaders are military age, single, Muslim males. Obama has sneeringly mocked those who have voiced concerns over this fact – repeat: FACT! – accusing them of being afraid of “widows and 3-year-olds”. However, he fails to acknowledge that there are almost zero of these among the invaders. Instead he tries to tell us, Americans who, unlike him, were raised in this country, by freedom-loving parents with the Judeo-Christian values that have made America a bastion of freedom, that not allowing him to foist 100,000 or more of these potential violent, Muslim terrorists on us is “not who we are.

 

Indeed, it is his policies in the Middle East that have created ISIL/ISIS and allowed dozens of other Islamic jihadist organizations to arise and/or expand exponentially. And though after years of attacks, he still refuses to admit that nearly all the acts of terrorism worldwide are by Mulsim zealots (https://www.facebook.com/AussieLanguage/videos/vb.213358308795914/671460799652327/?type=2&theater).

The “mainstream” media, in blatant collusion with him, also refuses to call it Islamic terrorism, and is complicit in aiding him in covering it up at home (http://www.dcclothesline.com/2015/11/22/a-list-of-islamic-terror-attacks-planned-andor-accomplished-in-the-us-that-hussein-obama-has-covered-up/).

Many in America are convinced that Obama is a closet Muslim and his actions over that past eight years have done nothing to disabuse us of this notion (https://www.facebook.com/Gallagher.Mike/posts/10150459723149943).

In fact, as we speak, Obama is touring Asia, bad-mouthing America in Muslim countries as he has done before, trying to make it look like those who resist his pro-Islamic jihadist policies are an ignorant, bigoted minority. In addition, his attempt to force 100,000 Muslims into American communities – mostly in Republican areas – is clearly – repeat: CLEARLY! – an attack on our freedom unprecedented (there’s that word again that the “mainstream” media love to apply to his actions) in the entire history of OUR country.

Enough!

The time has come for We, the People, who make up the clear majority of the citizens of America, to stand up and demand that Barack Hussein Obama resign from office, immediately. It’s obvious that no one in Congress will live up to their sworn Oath of Office to do their mandated duty and impeach him. Thus, it is up to us, the ones suffering most under his oppressive, dangerous, destructive, and totally unconstitutional and un-American policies, to take back the power we mistakenly delegated to the cabal occupying our capitol and the White House.

We need to take to the streets, declare a general, nationwide strike if necessary, and not stop until he steps down. We have seen the left force out dozens of conservatives over the years, including a Republican president, so what we would be demanding is not in the least extreme. And since the left will hysterically scream “racism”, merely cite what has been pointed out in the column above. Tell them, “It’s his actions, not the color of his skin,  stupid!”

This, of course, is not to say that if any of the Republican candidates want to support us in the demand for Obama’s immediate resignation that they would not be welcome. But this needs to be ours. We don’t need another self-proclaimed “leader” to make this happen. America is OUR country. We, the People are the owners, and it’s time we acted like it.

 

TRADITIONS BY MICHAEL OBERNDORF

Traditions

Traditionally – and I use this term, even though tradition has become a dirty word to the left – traditionally, when your economy is going south on you, or there is political unrest at home that threatens to remove you from power, traditionally, those in power start a war. We have seen this happen time and time again throughout history, all over the world. We are very likely to see it again. Soon.

The Ayatollah al Obozo and his unindicted co-conspirators in his administration and the corrupt, parasitic institution that is Congress, have managed to set the world back, peacewise, to a time that resembles the days leading up to damn near every war in recorded history. Their meddling in the Middle East has created massive instability that has allowed insanely zealous barbarians like ISIS to arise and metastasize in an epidemic worse than Ebola. Meanwhile, as both Russia and China have thrown caution to the wind and have been going full speed ahead with military improvement and expansion, al Obozo has been hell-bent on cutting and demoralizing ours. Traditionally, Obozo’s actions are called treason, but as the late, great Barry Goldwater said, none dare call it that.

So, while the Chinese make public statements that they are not afraid of having a war with us, and have their subs shadowing our aircraft carriers, and while the Russians hurl snarky insults at al Obozo as they violate the arms treaty and execute new tests of their nuke delivery missiles, and their nuclear bombers buzz our ships and cruise our coastlines, how does the Fraud in the Rainbow House react? By proving himself to be the Great Prevaricator, the Liar-in-Chief, and putting boots on the ground again in Iraq. Yikes!

The treasonous deal with Iran, brokered by the traitor John F. Kerry – who speaks French, by the way – and Ayatollah al Obozo – who can barely speak English, if it’s not written for him on a teleprompter – appears too, to have gone the traditional way of such sucker scams. As soon as it was signed, the $157 billion freed up to fund terrorists once again, and the crippling sanctions lifted, the Islamist Iranian rulers made it crystal clear that they have no intention of honoring any part of the deal. As it turns out, they have been responsible for at least 14% of the American deaths in Iraq, so al Obozo sending more American troops there seems to be icing on the cake for the Terrorists of Tehran.

Traditionally, Nobel Peace Prize winners don’t go around starting or abetting or getting their countries involved in wars. Not so with America’s Instant Peace Prize Laureate. Al Obozo has been responsible for tens of thousands of deaths of our troops and innocent civilians all over the world. As noted above, this has added immensely to the probability of a major war – World War III? – breaking out. It has also given the impetus and the excuse for the massive invasion of Europe by “refugees”, some 80% of whom are military age, single Muslim males, traditionally the core of jihadist armies. Though it failed in 732, thanks to Charles “The Hammer” Martel – the last great French military man – and again in 1492, when the last Muslims were run out of Spain, it seems indisputable that Europe is in imminent danger of falling to Islamic jihad. The Propaganda Ministry, aka, the “mainstream” media, love to gush about al Obozo’s “unprecedented” accomplishments. Bringing on the potential destruction of the world by all-consuming war leading to a nuclear holocaust, by a Nobel Peace Prize winner is decidedly unprecedented, and certainly not traditional.

Traditionally, elected representatives of We, the People, pay attention to our wants and needs if for no

other reason, traditionally, that if they don’t, they’ll get booted out of office. However, this seems to be another of those traditions that has gone by the wayside. On issue after issue, from the disastrous ObamaCare to amnesty to IRS and EPA abuses of authority to taxes and spending to defunding, demoralizing, and downsizing of our military to job-killing complicity with the “environmental”movement, Congress has blatantly ignored the wishes of 65 to 90% of We, the People. Instead, they do the bidding of huge-money “donors” – traditionally referred to as “criminal bribe givers” – the “special interests” of the not-so-distant past. We, the People, are no longer feared by those who would use positions of power, privilege, and influence in government for their own benefit. Frankly, the only thing – repeat: the only thing – that stands between us and totalitarian domination by a far left elitist minority is the Second Amendment. And when the house of cards built by this bought-and-paid-for “government” collapses, and the circling Russian, Chinese and jihadist wolves move in for the kill, it will be the tradition of a freedom-loving armed citizenry, the “gun behind every blade of grass” that the Japanese so feared, that will ultimately be our salvation.

CHINA SYNDROME BY MICHAEL OBERNDORF

China?

 

I have been spending time in Hong Kong this past year, and recently took a short trip into China proper. Several things struck me as being not at all what I expected, in both places. Not surprising, though, given the Ministry of Propaganda, aka, the “mainstream” media, filtering of what we are allowed to hear about. The skewed, leftist-agenda driven misinformation and downright lies that they spew out daily rarely paint a picture of what the world is actually like. Thus, I thought I would share some of my personal observations that if skewed, are skewed in the direction of proudly-American patriotic conservatism.

 

Hong Kong was taken as a colony by the British in 1841, as part of a treaty ending a brief war over opium. Over time, it became a great Asian commercial center and lots of people got very rich there, including many Chinese. In 1992, Hong Kong was returned to China by the British who were definitely watching the sun set on their former empire, and on their standing as a first tier nation.

 

However, rather than imposing the idiotic central planning that communists are infamous for, the ChiComs allowed business to continue pretty much as usual: largely unregulated and untaxed. As a result, Hong Kong continued to prosper, bringing huge amounts of capital and trade to, and through, it. I saw more Ferraris in 10 days last winter than I had seen in the previous 10 years in the US. Unemployment appears to be minimal. The parks have only retired people, not the jobless, in them, and the homeless are very hard to find. Poverty seems darn near non-existent, and, unlike America’s Democrat-run cities, it’s safe and clean. It reminds me of what America was like back when I was growing up, in the 1950s and early ’60s. And though they have experienced some recent unrest among the Chinese residents regarding the local political process, international business – the source of Hong Kong’s fabulous wealth – has been mostly unaffected. This, of course, may change, but for the more or less immediate future, Hong Kong will likely maintain its #1 ranking as the most free place for doing business in the world. The USA, by the way, under Obozo and his Merry RINOs, has sunk to #17.

 

China proper, too, had some surprises. When I crossed the border into Shenzhen – Hong Kong and the New Territories are not part of the Mainland and you have to have a visa to cross from them into China – I expected there to be a big change from booming Hong Kong. Instead, it looked very much the same – well dressed (often expensively) people, lots of luxury cars, but with China license plates, lots of big construction projects, and so on. Unlike our border with Mexico, where the poverty, crime, filth, and pollution are a stark contrast, Shenzhen clearly has benefited from its proximity to the epitome of free enterprise. But while Shenzhen was similar to Hong Kong, there were recognizable differences.

 

One of the first things I noticed on the cab ride from the crossing to my hotel – a marvelous Crowne Plaza – was that there were, what were clearly homeless wino-types, sleeping in the parks. These people are not supposed to exist in Mao’s worker’s paradise, but they do indeed, though not in great numbers. I wonder how they have managed to stay out of sight of the all-seeing eye of the People’s Police.  And this relates somewhat to another Chinese anomaly – ghost cities and unfinished housing.

 

The Ministry of Propaganda has mentioned ghost cities, but mostly as curiosities, with little or no serious analysis. These cities are complete, with wonderful housing and shopping malls, but no more than 10% occupancy in any of them. And out in the smaller cities and towns and the countryside, I saw hundreds of relatively new three and four story western-style buildings, constructed to the point of just needing finishing – wall and ceiling finish, window glass, etc. – and then apparently left to sit, some obviously for more than just a few months. So, with all this vacant, potentially occupiable housing, why are there still homeless on the streets? And who is supposed to fill it all, since other than the handful of homeless, everyone seemed to have places to live?

 

What this suggests to me is that all these are make-work projects, to keep people busy, who would otherwise be idle, and thus, potential trouble-makers, but producing nothing of real value to the country. Indeed, I saw lots of idle workers, sitting around day after day, playing cards (gambling! shocking!) apparently victims of government dictating which businesses operate when. While it is always possible that there is some brilliant central master plan behind all this, it sure isn’t obvious, and instead hints at endemic systemic problems for which they are unsuccessfully groping for a solution.

 

Add to this the obvious popularity of Western Culture, and China becomes less of a stable, monolithic, communist state than we are led to believe it is. Virtually no one wears traditional Chinese clothes, except a few ethnic minorities in very rural areas of southwest China, and it is not unusual to see spiked, blue/green/red hairdos. Western music is everywhere, and television and advertising are clearly modeled after ours and Europe’s. This embracing of Western, non-Chinese culture hints at the adoption of Western values, sooner or later, and may be a major factor in the increasing crackdown on internal dissent. Interesting times, indeed!

 

 

 

MICHAEL OBERNDORF – FIRST HAND LOOK AT HONG KONG AND THE MAIN LAND

Stranger Than Fiction

It’s been a while since I’ve commented on the Kafkaesque dreamscape that life has degenerated into of late. This happens occasionally, when it seems things can’t get any weirder, but they do. I drop back and watch, waiting to see if anybody does anything to make things better. Invariably, they never do.

This time it’s been no different. In fact, things seem to be getting exponentially worse, with the supposed Good Guys aiding and abetting the Bad Guys like they were all on the same payroll. Oh…wait…they are. Never mind.

The one bright spot is Donald Trump. Now, I don’t really give a flying hooha that he’s not a purist’s idea of a conservative, or that he’s a populist. What is important is that he’s a patriot who loves America and will do whatever he can to restore us to the greatness that, pre-Obama and the America-hating neo-fascists who run him and the Democrats, used to be ours. Trump is not a politician, he’s a very successful businessman, and that is exactly what we need. He’s lost and regained fortunes and more, has bought and sold politicians, so he knows how they play their game, and he’s got enough money so that he is neither afraid of nor beholden to anyone. Again, exactly what we need. Now, if we can at the same time get rid of the 100 or so worthless, lying RINOs in the House and the 34 or so even more worthless, lying RINOs in the Senate, we could see America become once more the great, constitutional republic that our founders intended us to be.

As a result of many, if not most, Americans not having access to the truth about what is happening in the world around us – our “mainstream news media” has degenerated into nothing more that a leftist propaganda and indoctrination machine – we are woefully unaware of the dangers that are growing like unchecked cancers around us.

I am currently in Hong Kong, and have just returned from a short trip into China proper, and a couple of things have become very clear. First, Hong Kong, with it’s largely free and unregulated trade, is booming like I have never seen a place boom. Massive construction, high demand for luxury goods, marketplaces filled with goods and crowds of people there to buy them. The docks are crowded with containers stacked seven and eight high, coming in and going out. The harbor, too, is filled with ships, bringing thousands of more containers filled with goods from the mainland, and taking others out to ports all over the world. For this, we can thank the neo-fascists who have run our government and “global” corporations, outsourcing our work and wealth, for at least the last 25 years.

The second thing that has become clear is that something is very wrong in China. Their conversion into a quasi-capitalist, quasi-communist country has created consumer economy and a hugely higher standard of living for nearly everyone. It’s also created an obvious privileged class who can afford luxury apartments, BMWs, Mercedes’, Buicks, and other high-priced vehicles, Armani clothes, Cartier watches, etc. But it has also created the ghost cities – whole cities, brand new, with massive high rise apartment complexes and shopping malls…all standing empty. What I discovered on my little jaunt was that a similar situation exists in the countryside, where it’s not so obvious, but apparently is ubiquitous.

In every hamlet, village, and town, and to some extent in the smaller cities, too, there are dozens of new two, three, and four storey, multiple-occupancy houses, constructed to the pre-finish stage, and then left standing unfinished and empty. No workers at all, and as near as I could tell, and no people in need of housing to fill them if they ever did finish them. They appear to be a massive socialist make-work scheme that didn’t work out as planned, but suggesting internal economic problems that they haven’t come up with a solution for.

The worrisome aspect of all this is the aggressive actions China has been taking towards its neighbors – Japan, the Philippines, Vietnam and Taiwan. The tried-and-true method of repairing a broken economy has always been to start a war, preferably one you can win. Among those who understand the Chinese military, it has long been predicted that they will move on these smaller neighbors, and if no one stops them, will go on to take the rest of Asia. Unfortunately, Marxist Obama and his Marxist Democrat Party have weakened our military so badly that China is virtually assured of only cheap talk and token resistance from us. Interesting times, indeed!

Sadly, China is only one of America’s coming disasters. Obama and his little helpers in the Republican Establishment have also guaranteed that the Middle East will explode, and most likely, Europe will collapse, too. And lest we forget, they are facilitating the inundation of America with violent foreign criminals and terrorists.

I, for one, believe that Donald Trump, with the backing of a genuinely patriotic Congress, could turn things around. However, this can only happen if We, the People, make it happen. Can we?

MICHAEL OBERNDORF WEIGHS IN ON THE STATE OF AFFAIRS

The Revolution is Over

 

News flash from the gummint and the Republican Party Establishment (aka, the Misleadership): “Ladies and gentlemen, the Revolution is over, and so as not to inconvenience anyone, nothing has been changed.” And so it would seem. Despite an historic landslide victory for supposed conservative Republicans in both houses of Congress, Obamacare has not been repealed or defunded; Obama’s illegal Executive Amnesty has not been defunded nor has anyone been indicted for defying court orders to end it; the butchers at Planned Parenthood will continue to be funded with taxpayer money; tens of thousands of Muslim “refugees” are being forced on the country, despite the opposition of the  vast majority of Americans; the unconstitutional EPA is still operating as a Democrat political sledgehammer, killing jobs and extending federal control over all land use; the dismantling of our military continues apace and unimpeded; the Middle East, and thus the world, has been brought to the brink of WWIII, thanks to the ineptness or intentional machinations, supported by the Republican Establishment, of Obama and the globalist Council on Foreign Relations-dominated State Department; and though the traitor Boehner has been pressured into quitting, it appears likely he’ll be replaced by a business-as-usual political clone; etcetera, etcetera, etcetera, ad nauseam.

 

The mess Obama and the State of Confusion Department have made in their dealings with Putin, too, should be of extreme concern to thinking conservatives. Putin’s airstrikes against ISIS seem to be doing in a few days what the Obama-controlled ones of ours failed to do in months. Putin is looking like what a real world leader should look like, and Obama, and thus America, are looking like totally incompetent fools. And trust me, the world is watching very closely, much like wolves watching a crippled sheep.

 

China, in particular, is not just watching, but gathering its strength, getting ready to pounce. Comments by Chinese leader Xi Jinping indicate that the recent talks with Obama left him totally unimpressed and not the least inclined to alter their present aggressive policies with their Asian neighbors and in the South China Sea. Obama’s weakening of our military and the massive strengthening of China’s, particularly its navy, and Putin’s show of strength in Syria with the tail-between-his-legs-rollover submission there by Obama (and this ignores the glaring fact that we should never have gotten involved in Syria in the first place), make it very likely that China will also escalate its aggressive moves on its smaller, weaker neighbors.

 

The really despicable part of all this is the acquiescence of Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, and the Republican Establishment. They have sat passively, or voted to allow Obama to create unmitigated chaos, at home and abroad. They could, and should, have impeached Obama years ago, but instead have aided and abetted him at every turn, all the while publicly pretending to be opposed to all his unconstitutional and illegal actions. If there were a law that any elected official who violated his oath of office would be summarily removed from that office, tried, and if found guilty of doing so intentionally, imprisoned for, say, one-to-five years, there wouldn’t be anyone left in Congress or the White House, and ¾ of the judiciary would be gone, too. Perhaps if we elect Trump or Carson or Cruz, we can get such a law.

 

Washington and our once (relatively) honest political system have been fatally corrupted in the past 25 years. Money has indisputably become King there, the driving force in all our politics, and all of the current gaggle of politicians, Republicans and Democrats, have, to some extent at least, been bought and paid for by special interests. It’s been a long time since they have acted in the interests of America or We, the People. We are inches away from being a totalitarian state, ruled by a self-serving, wealthy, globalist elite who see us as cash cows to be milked until we are dry.

 

It seems crystal clear that We, the People, are fed up and finally ready to fight back. The popularity of Donald Trump, Ben Carson, and Ted Cruz is no some passing fad, no flash in the pan. It’s a genuine reflection of the feelings of the majority of Americans who are done standing quietly in the background while radical leftists and neo-fascists dismantle and loot the country.

 

And woe be unto the fools who doubt this.

OBAMA DOES IT AGAIN SAYS MICHAEL OBERNDORF

Obama does it again

The Muslim Marxist in the White Mosque continues, on a daily basis, to exceed our expectations. Just when you think he can’t get any more lawless, or corrupt, or incompetent, or traitorous, he does. But like he claims to be the case with American’s achievements, he doesn’t do it alone. He’s had massive assistance from the “mainstream” media, the Democrat Party, and to the disgust of patriotic Americans nationwide, the Republican Establishment.

In spite of it being so obvious that his “executive amnesty” scam is blatantly unconstitutional – and therefore blatantly illegal – so obvious that even a federal judge ruled against it and placed an injunction on it, Obama has continued to push through his scheme to overrun the country with semi-literate, unskilled, often violently criminal, illegal alien invaders who have no understanding of America, nor any loyalty to it. But Obama and his co-conspirators are all supremely confident that the invaders will vote Democrat, thus ensuring radical leftist rule in America in perpetuity.

And why wouldn’t the Democrats and the Chamber of Commerce Establishment Republicans be confident of this when a recent left-wing Pew Research Center study (http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2015/03/28/hold-think-tank-illegal-immigrant-males-more-likely-to-be-in-workforce-than-legal-immigrants-us-born-men/) shows illegals have stolen jobs to the point they are employed at a higher rate than native-born Americans or legal immigrants. This is on top of insanely huge welfare benefits, and preferential treatment in things like college tuition and, incredibly, accountability for their often violent criminal acts.

Beyond our non-existent borders, Obama has made things even worse. His meddling in the Middle East, in support of Islamic jihad, has created disaster after disaster for the dwindling number of secular, relatively civilized countries there. Driven by his egomaniacal, narcissistic belief that he is brilliant and infallible, Obama and his lackeys – Clinton (and her “special” assistant Huma Abedin) and Kerry and the leftist-dominated State Department, Muslim convert Brennan at the CIA, Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett, etc., etc., ad nauseam – have tried to install their Muslim Brotherhood allies in power, but instead, due to what is clearly a near total lack of understanding of Middle East politics, culture, and ironically, religion, have created chaos that borders on anarchy.

Their bungling is so bad that Obama’s self-proclaimed success against terrorists in Yemen resulted in jihadis overthrowing the government there. This in turn resulted in Saudi Arabia, a country that has almost always relied on surrogates to act militarily on its behalf, joining with other Arab states to form an Arab Army that will likely include Egypt, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, and Kuwait. Shiite and Sunni hatred for one another is almost as intense as Islam’s hatred of infidels – Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, and everyone else who is not Muslim. This has exacerbated the situation in the Middle East and has been, it seems, totally misread by the Muslim in the White Mosque and his cronies.

Terrorist-sponsoring Shiite Iran is being allowed to continue to develop its nuclear weapons, much to the dismay of Sunni Saudi Arabia. Sunni Saudi Arabia, who has financed terrorism on a huge scale (including, many believe 9/11 and Obama’s education and political career) now

wants nukes of their own. The Middle East, thanks to the “brilliance” and utter incompetence of Obama trying to play both ends against the middle is about to be the starting place of World War III.

This, of course, all ignores the state of the world economy and the fact that the dollar is in big trouble, as is, in spite of the lies of the Obama administration and their stooges in the media, the American economy. The mess, once again, is due to the total lack of understanding of economics by knee-jerk Marxist Obama and his knee-jerk Marxists associates. Collapse, sooner rather than later, is a real possibility.

Meanwhile, the Republicans, almost without exception, are doing nothing – repeat, nothing – to stop or even slow down our descent into a New Dark Age. Congress has over the past 30 years degenerated into a corrupt, toothless paper tiger, interested only in enriching its members at the expense of We, the People, and maintaining its position of power and privilege. There is hardly a member who is not in serious violation of their oath to protect and uphold the Constitution. Instead of actually dealing with the destruction of the separation of powers and the lawlessness of the Obama regime, Congress – and again, abetted by the “mainstream” media – is nearly 100 percent absorbed in an election that won’t happen for a year-and-a-half. In the meantime, the country and the world are going to hell, and We, the People, it seems, can only stand on the sidelines and watch, while the Obama’s loot the treasury to indulge themselves in multi-million dollar “vacations” and golf outings, rewarding themselves for the superlative job they are doing.

MICHAEL OBERNDORF – COWARDS CONTROLLING THE LEVERS OF POWER

Cowardly New World

The 2014 elections, landslide victory that they were for Republicans, were supposed to usher in a new Era of Repudiation of Obama and his policies. B. Hussein stated on TeeVee that all the Democrats running for office had repeatedly voted for his policies, and therefore, the people were voting for or against said policies. The election landslide then, was a massive, mandated rejection of them, and by extension, the man behind them. Unfortunately, but not unexpectedly, it hasn’t worked out that way.

The neo-fascists passing themselves off as the Republican Establishment, aka, the Party Misleadership, seem terrified of standing up for the Rule of Law, or the Constitution, or what is morally right, or actually, anything that We, the People, as Americans, hold dear. And to add injury to insult, they and those they dictate to in Congress will not stand up against Islamic terrorism, the illegal invasion or the illegal invaders, the totally un-American “Affordable” Care Act, the un-Patriotic “Patriot Act”, massive and totally illegal government spying on We, the People, the totally illegal acts of the IRS and the EPA, et cetera, et cetera, ad nauseam.

Huxley got it wrong when he warned of a “Brave New World.” It’s a cowardly one, and elected Republicans, with only a few exceptions, have wet trousers and yellow streaks down their backs a yard wide. One would think that after 40 years of the attacks by the Ministry of Democrat Propaganda, aka, the “Mainstream” Media, and 40 years of lockstep Democrat votes in Congress, and 40 years of Democrats as a whole moving farther and farther and more openly to the radical left, they would have learned a few pathetically obvious lessons:

1) The leftist media will never say good things about them, even if the completely cave to Democrat demands (which they do on a regular basis).

2) Democrats in Congress believe “compromise” means completely give in to their demands. Always. No exceptions.

3) No matter how much you grovel and pander and give in to leftists, e.g., the greenies, the “Occupy Movement,” the anti-war/anti-military crowd, the Political Correctness/anti-free speech crowd, the gun control fanatics, etc., they will never vote for you. Ever. Period!

4) No matter what you do, all of the above will call you racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic, stupid, backward, etc., and will continue to do so in perpetuity.

5) That it is We, the People, your “base,” who elected you and perhaps will re-elect you, not “independents” or “moderates” or cross-over voters.

Instead, the latest crop of Republicans seems to have set a new record for betrayal of the voters and selling out to the Establishment. Following the mislead of Boehner and McConnell, they are putting up only token resistance to amnesty, Obamacare, government spying, Obama’s selling us out to Iran, the continued destruction of the military, and are actually considering new taxes. And of course, they let the Ministry of Democrat Propaganda call the tune.

Rather than stay focused on the issues We, the People, elected them to deal with, the cowards have allowed the presidential election that is two years away to become the Big Story. Frankly, I don’t give a flying hoohah at this point who the quislings in the Republican Establishment or the Democrat propaganda machine want to be the Republican candidate. There are vastly more important things that need our immediate attention.

Despite the daily lies from the administration and the media, the economy is barely surviving. Inflation is rampant. The job picture is disastrous. The dollar is under serious attack from powerful forces, e.g., BRIC, and could easily collapse. The entire Middle East is on the verge of an upheaval/collapse that will in all likelihood bring on WWIII and possibly a nuclear holocaust. Asia is not in much better shape. Nor is Africa. Muslim terrorism is out of control and growing stronger and more widespread every day. But what we get from the cowards in Congress and the traitors in the media would make it seem that all is rosy, Obama is doing a bang-up job, and Boehner and McConnell are the greatest leaders since Lincoln. Heesh…

I can think of lots of things that could turn all this around, but to be honest, I can’t think of a way to get our Congress to do them. They have gotten themselves into positions of power and appear to no longer be afraid of losing them. The voters have served their purpose and can be cast aside like yesterday’s newspaper. When amnesty is done, We, the People, will be a permanent, irrelevant minority, powerless. Not a pretty prospect.

My last hope is that We, the People, will get very involved at the state level, putting as much pressure as we can on our legislators and governors to actively and adamantly resist federal lawlessness. They should be encouraged to actively and adamantly demand federal adherence to the Constitution. And if this fails, they should be directed to actively and adamantly pursue secession. Anything less will result in a nightmare of unimaginable ___________(fill in the blank).
