Society’s Rights

The lectern used by Senator Dianne Feinstein to announce the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the CIA’s interrogation methods bore a label declaring “human rights first.”  Human rights, however, depend entirely upon preservation of the political power and social culture that proclaims and supports them.  Enhanced interrogation methods after 9/11 were essential to that end.

Rioting Mobs Victimized By Black Capitalists

Mike Adam’s take on the riots, looting, and burning in Ferguson and elsewhere: truth is an impediment to destabilizing political and social order to further liberal-progressivism.

Your Tax Dollars At Work

It’s hardly news that, in the case of the IRS, taxes paid by believers in our original Constitutional government are being used to further the cause of socialism and the Democrat-Socialist Party.  With latest revelations pried out of the White House and the IRS, what’s news is the vast scope of the IRS’s skulduggery.

Ramifications Of The Ferguson Attitude

For absurd posturing by racial minority fringe groups, read Heather Mac Donald’s The Microaggression Farce:  The latest campus fad, which sees racism everywhere, will create a new generation of permanent victims.

Ferguson Again

If one listens only to black “leaders” such as Al Sharpton, it’s easy to believe that minorities that feel affronted have a Constitutional right to riot, burn, and loot other people’s property.

ObamaCare Sausage

Like sausage, few people knew everything that was packed into it.

Socialism In Our Time

Liberal-progressive-socialists like President Obama are obviously not as much concerned about glacial economic recovery as are the bulk of our citizenry.  Obama’s attention is riveted on broadening every possible means of regulating every person’s every action, every day.

Keeping everybody, to the maximum extent, on some form of welfare support ands therefore beholden to Washington, means that the aim of socialism - control of all aspects of the economy - is being realized at an accelerating rate. 

ObamaCare is but one of the many Democrat Socialist Party’s policy initiatives aimed at total collectivization and obliteration of the individual rights intended for protection by the Bill of Rights.

Political Morality?

Liberal-progressives deny the existence of moral principles, but don’t hesitate to employ moral rhetoric to cudgel those who disagree with them.

Liberal-Progressive Oppression

Add attempts to criminalize opinions expressed by religious leaders to the list of government oppression that egregiously includes the IRS’s working to put out of business any opinion group that opposes Obama’s reckless, anti-Constitutional socialization of our nation.


SERMONIZING POLS
They choose political correctness over religious freedom.
