POLITICAL CORRECTNESS KILLS?
Is it possible that Political Correctness killed the news team in Virginia?
Before I go any further, let me define the term "Political Correctness." To be politically correct, one must adhere to a belief that individuals are not responsible for their own reactions; that, likewise, individuals are not responsible for their actions, either. All individuals should be entitled not to be offended. All individuals determine what is offensive. The more people one can enjoin to agree on the offense, the more real that offense becomes.
There's a very good reason why this man (woman?) should not be your next-door neighbor. He's CRAZY!
Those of you who took logic in college already know what I'm going to say as far as the logicality of Political Correctness. There is so little logic to PCness, it's almost insulting to consider the matter. Subjectivity cannot be quantified, and therefore cannot be logical. So, being PC means it's time to retire to the unicorn farm, where anything you want comes true.
As humorous as it is, Political Correctness has a very dark side.
People who cannot assert their own independence often clasp onto PCness in hopes of becoming important at least in their own minds. But there is a deeper darkness that has been generated by P.C. Two elements are outstanding in this instance: 1. Several million insane people are roaming our country (and others) free to assault and kill the innocent. 2. People feel too embarrassed to ask tough questions of minorities.
Several million insane people are roaming our country. Several years ago, progressives in the Psychological Freedom movement took an idea from some science fiction writers and declared that EVERYONE was a little bit nuts, and that most could, or at least SHOULD, be allowed to roam free. It was rude to call an insane person "crazy." A few years later, it was considered "ignorant" to call insane people "insane." As the nomenclature became more and more restrictive, the very idea of confining the insane for the sake of the populace's safety became "selfish," and "inhumane."
Well, now we know that this liberal progressive idea is, itself, insane. But instead of a movement to confine the nuts to the nuthouse, we blame the instruments of their insanity. "If he hadn't had a knife.. if she hadn't had a gun.." and so forth.
But, today, with our electronic abilities, we don't have to assign crazy people to the dungeons of old. There are plenty of "collegial" designs with open spaces, pleasant housing, and chips to assure a patient's location. Some criminally insane SHOULD BE killed. Killing a criminally insane murderer or pedophile creates a ZERO PERCENT recidivism rate. Do all these simple things, and watch the murder-by-crazies rate go down.
People feel too embarrassed to ask tough questions of minorities. I would be willing to bet real money that, somewhere along the line, some psychologist or registering psychological agent did not ask the Person of Color, who murdered the two Caucasian people in the news crew, the proper questions to determine his psychosis. At very least, whoever was in charge was afraid of being called a racist if he had labeled the guy's anger as psychologically questionable. So he, the crazy person, was able to buy a gun.
Political Correctness used to be considered just silly - colleges disallowing certain words because they were afraid of getting sued, etc.. Today, PC is a plague which has consequences far beyond those intended. PC paves the road to Hell with its good intentions, and people die, because of it.
ERIKA BLOWS AWAY
UPDATE: There is a chance - a chance, mind you - that Erika MAY come back and
reform. The European, which is generally the most accurate of all the long-range forecast models was just
plain wrong. And so was the JAMSTEC, the three major US models, and The Ozzie model.
Anyway, as you can see, Erika is just a "Low" hanging around Florida.
It COULD still fire back up again, so we'll have to wait. Nothing is more unseemly than
an impatient weatherman.
Once again, we all have been painfully reminded that you can't forecast
weather accurately more than four ½ hours in the mountains and six hours on the
plains, you can make general guesses about large systems as much as a week
away, as long as you're allowed not to expect too much from your prognostication.
Whatever the weather is, we have up-to-the-minute free maps and Hurricane info, when it
IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER
In a panic, the S&P 500 wants a P/E ratio of 5.
Most of the Big Banks/Brokerages have their best accounts almost completely out of the
stock market. The ones taking the biggest hit are retirement funds and individual mutual funds which turn
around as agilely as the Titanic..
If you will have a huge loss, if you pull out of the stock market now, and you own
solid stocks like Duke Energy or SCANA, or pure SC Municipal Bonds, DON'T SELL! If you have a 30% profit
or greater, then sell now, and wait for the bottom to buy back in.
Did you buy gold and silver or property in a growth area? Good on you. Yes, the Obama
administration will try to screw down your precious metals values, but simply DON'T LET the Commodities
sellers put you in an account that THEY will hold for you.
Most importantly, put your seatbelts on. As the bus driver in Harry Potter says, "It's

We're talking about small amounts of a degree, here, but it's interesting to note that
the temperature, over the past 80 years has risen a tenth of a degree Fahrenheit in the Northern Hemisphere.
But in the Southern Hemisphere, the temperature has decreased almost a full degree. The Arctic, which was
projected to lose its Summer Ice, altogether, by now, is GAINING ice

OLD JOKES, NEW CLOTHES
Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road?
SARAH PALIN: The chicken crossed the road because, gosh-darn it, he's a maverick!
BARACK OBAMA: Let me be perfectly clear, if the chickens like their eggs they can keep their eggs. No chicken will be required to cross the road to surrender her eggs. Period.
JOHN McCAIN: My friends, the chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to be in the middle. The middle of the road will get us elected. Yes, "seriously."
HILLARY CLINTON: What difference at this point does it make why the chicken crossed the road?
BILL CLINTON: Oh! Chicken! I thought you said somethin' else.
GEORGE W. BUSH: The fact is, the chicken crossed the road. Is the chicken on our side of the road or not? The chicken is either with us or against us. There is no middle ground here.
JEB BUSH: Look, we're just starting this thing. If I had known THEN what I know NOW, The Chicken would NEVER have crossed the road!
DONALD TRUMP: I can make the chicken do.. in fact, I know the chicken - he's a good guy - but I HAVE made the chicken cross the road, and I can make him pay for whatever the costs might be.
DONALD RUMSFELD: Is it possible that the chicken crossed the road of his own volition? Probably not.
DICK CHENEY: Where's my shotgun?
JOE BIDEN: I fired two shots from my back porch with my shotgun at the chicken, which was a big forking deal.
BILL CLINTON (again): I did not eat grits with that chicken.
AL GORE: I invented the chicken. I also invented the road, and the act of crossing.
JOHN KERRY: Although I have no idea WHY the chicken crosses the road or even WHEN, I and my staff, on orders from the President, have made it possible for the chicken to cross the road with a bomb.
AL SHARPTON: Why is that chicken white?
JESSE JACKSON: The chicken was collecting our Rainbow money.
DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after the problem on the other side of the road.
ANDERSON COOPER: We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.
MEGYN KELLY: WHEN, EXACTLY, DID YOU STOP BEATING THAT CHICKEN???
NANCY GRACE: That chicken crossed the road because he's guilty! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks.
PAT BUCHANAN: To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.
MARTHA STEWART: No one called me to warn me which way the chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer's Market to sell my eggs, when the price dropped to a certain level. No chick gave me any insider information.
DR SEUSS: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but did not cross it with a toad.
EL CHAPO: Theess pollo no cross theess road. She dug a tunnel UNDER theess road.
ERNEST HEMINGWAY: To die in a rowboat, in the rain, alone..
JIMMY CARTER: In my day we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.
ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.
DALAI LAMA: Because the road wants it.
POPE FRANCIS: CALEFACIENTEM MUNDI CAUSA GALLINAE (Chickens cause global warming).
SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM: The only way we can get out of this, is to re-invade the other side of the road and KILL every Chicken there!.
LOIS LERNER: There was no chicken. There was no road. I plead the Vth.
TREY GOWDY: That bird almost got away with crossing the road. But, she didn't.
BILL GATES: I have just released eChicken2015, which is not cross-roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents and balance your checkbook. Internet Explorer is an integral part of eChicken2015. This new platform is much more stable and will never reboot.. will never reboot.. wi..
ALBERT EINSTEIN: As a Chicken approaches the speed of light, the density of the Chicken approaches infinity. F∞=BC2, where F=Fat and B=Bird.
COLONEL SANDERS: AND, I add a biscuit with that chicken!
PAPER TIGER PART 4
It seems like a million years ago, when we warned you about China being a "paper tiger." Remember what we warned might happen - that China will begin to call in her loans to America. Well, something interesting is happening. Because China has panicked, devaluing her currency (Yuan), she is paying her current debt service with US Treasury certificates.
This hurts the US economy in two ways. It makes the US Dollar stronger, killing trade with other countries who want to pay cheaper prices. It makes the currency of China's trading partners stronger, while making the Yuan even cheaper around the globe, driving more trade to China.
There is a third result and fourth result. China investors will sell US stocks to cover losses in China, also forcing down US market value, which, in turn, makes it more costly for the FED to drive the market up, which is looney, because Treasuries don't really have any value but as a commodity..
An audit of the FED would easily show that we have a sock puppet show.. but that's not going to happen while the thieves control the house they're stealing from.
There is an old joke about a Yankee trader and a Southern Farmer. The Yankee cannot say a sentence without saying a "blue" word or phrase. The Southerner cannot say anything within a normal time period. You can look up the rest of the joke and the punch line. What this joke does is maintain clichÃ©s about People from the North and South - Yankees are crude, dishonest, and foul-mouthed - Southerners are crazy, dim-wits.
In my fairly long life, I have met many Yankees and many more Southerners. While it is true that Southerners live a slower-paced life and Northerners Speak faster, they are, generally, not only intelligent and cultured, but also interesting people.
So, when practically everyone I know is cussing mad at the Progessive/Liberal/Fascist agenda as expressed by the Obama Administration, it's easy to understand why another "cusser" is so politically popular.
No-one is saying that Donald Trump, Billionaire and Presidential Candidate is a Southern Gentleman. No-one. The real question is, is Donald Trump a Northern Gentleman, or even a Gentleman at all? Up until the post Fox Debate statement, I thought he was just a ruffian, hard-scrapple and a scrapper. No longer.
Before we "go there," and we will, we must also shame Megyn Kelly. Having been a TV journalist for 20 years and now, ten years writing every day for SwampfoxNews.com, I can absolutely assure you that Megyn's questions, aimed at both Carson and Trump were pejorative. What they were NOT was mean-spirited - that would attach a meanness which is not deserved. But there is no doubt that Ms. Kelly was scalp hunting. Let there be no misunderstanding, Megyn Kelly's idea of fairness involves humiliating the interviewee. The only reason she gets to skate free is that a small part of her questions had the air of authenticity, if not the fact. As one very experienced news director told me, "The proper attitude of a journalist is one of opposition."
Donald Trump shoots from the hip. That means 99% of the time, he comes off as aggressive, but canny and clever - even funny. But it also means that 1% of the time his mouth writes checks his brain cannot cash. That's what happened when he went further than the understandable rant against Kelly, and became gross, crude, and just plain uncouth.
You just don't go around saying what he said. If he had even stopped at blood coming out of her eyes, there would be no issue. But he didn't.
None of this, of course, means that Trump will no longer be popular - many, many people have no couth - it is drilled out them by public education and replaced with PC'ism, so that they have no idea WHY they are to do the things they do..
So Trump is a cad and Kelly is a wounded tigress. There are no winners here. There is, however, a Northern Gentleman. His name is Carson. He's also a brain surgeon.
GIBSON'S PARADOX IS NOW GIBSON'S AXIOM
..or, why economists have trouble seeing forests..
By Alasdair Macleod
We now have an explanation for Gibson's paradox, a puzzle that has defeated mainstream economists from Fisher to Keynes and Friedman. The best way to illustrate the puzzle is through two charts, the first showing empirical evidence that interest rates correlate with the price level. And the second, showing no correlation between interest rates and the annual change in the price level, i.e. the rate of inflation.
The solution to the puzzle is simple: in free markets, interest rates are set by the demands of investing businesses which at the margin will pay a rate of interest based on whether their product prices are rising or falling: hence the correlation.
The second chart shows that central bank policies, which seek to control prices by setting interest rates, have no theoretical justification behind them. They are the consequence of blindly accepting the quantity theory of money, upon which macroeconomics is based.
A mistake made by central bankers is to believe that the price of money is its interest rate, instead of the reciprocal of the price of the products for which it is exchanged. Interest rates are money's time preference, which in free markets broadly reflects the average time preference of all the individual goods bought with money. The problem with monetarism is that it ignores this temporal aspect of exchange.

While the Democrats were basically shamed into announcing that they really will have a debate, sometime, the Republicans were busy HAVING a debate. There were two debates - one at Five PM and one a nine. The late afternoon debate was among seven Republicans whose campaigns have not taken off or have just begun. The Evening Debate is among those Republicans who had the best name recognition and/or popularity. Our Senator was in the less popular group.
The Five O'Clock Debate
The best of the afternoon group (in my opinion) were Carly Fiorino, and Bobby Jindal.
Governor Jindal had the clearest Presidential ideas. Not only would he make every effort to undo all of the misguided calumnies of the current administration, he made clear points about how this would help bring America back to her former greatness.
Most impressive of all the candidates was Ms. Fiorino - not just because she is a take charge person, but because she had a confidence that some of the others seem to lack. At the end of the debate, am large majority of the reporters flocked to her in the "spin" room.
Rick Perry made a strong appearance, too. The glasses are working. He only made one flub, and that was miniscule.
It's not that the others - Santorum, Graham, Pataki, and Gilmore - were unimpressive. But they WERE really laid back or one-trick ponies. If there was a drinking game for every time Sen. Graham talked about taking the fight to the Islamicists, the entire room would have been on the floor. Lindsey seemed tired. On to the 9 o'clock debate.
The Nine O'Clock Debate
If there was a loser in the evening debate, it had to be Megyn Kelly, and to a lesser extent, Chris Wallace. Using the cloak of pretended journalistic innocence, Kelly began and continued to ask loaded questions to people she deemed weak subjects. She wound up looking like a dummy. Wallace tried to argue with a couple of candidates, not realizing that people cared more about their view than his. Kelly's aim seemed to be to embarrass as many people as possible. Chris didn't blindside the people he thought he would.
Before we get to that, I have to say that when the so-called political experts were interviewed, after the debate, it was as if they sat in a different hall - so many were completely wrong, biased, or irrelevant impressions. The most interesting was the focus group which was impressed by Ted Cruz.
Gotta be a tie.. among them ALL.. except Ted Cruz. He was stirring, his style was .999 fine, but the Fox News people did not ask him as many questions and it made him seem weaker than he is.
Kasich, Carson, Rubio, and Huckabee were the most outstanding, followed by Bush, Paul, Walker, Trump, and Christie. We're only talking minute differences in audience acceptance, here.
The best bickering was between Christie and Paul. The question of government spying is important and they are true believers on their own sides. But, Carson had the best answer, and that is that America is too precious for us not to fight with every means - AND - we must fight to win.
Carson made the best wrap, at the end. The Huck had the next best wrap. Carson also seemed to be the candidate who surprised the most people with his eloquence. Personally, I feel justified in liking him better for the Presidency. But I would be satisfied with any of the entire field, except two. You may guess whom, as you like.
Overall, the Democrat choices look pathetic in comparison. And that is the real takeaway.
WHAT THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TRAIN WRECK MIGHT LOOK LIKE
We warned you, years ago, about what would happen if we created too much debt - and certainly not just us. No-one listened. Everyone wanted to believe that things would be o.k. The government - Barack Obama's government - lied to us, showing us bogus statistics and phony market rallies with accompanying commodity markets manipulation. It made most of us think things were really great. Well.. some of us. Certainly, the Mainstream Media.
The only thing that has to happen for this house of cards to fall apart, at this point, is for an honest person to be elected President. The propped-up markets would fall, and the suppressed markets will skyrocket. The rats will leave the sinking ship of state, and the gerbils will start blaming each other.
Some have forecast that we will see a financial armageddon. I'm not so sure that will happen. A train wreck, maybe, but not TEOTWAWKI. As much as I would like to punish every Progressive for being so stupid, the only way we can reasonably pull out of this inevitable scenario is to do it, gradually.
First, we should remove the restraints on the commodities markets by gradually initiating a private-hold-only policy for precious metals. We keep the futures market, but insist on final delivery - no forgiveness. This will raise the price of gold to $5,000/oz as paper-gold houses are shown be bankrupt. Those private citizens who have paper certificates will have their gold delivered from the company's private reserves, if any. Unfortunately, there will not be sufficient specie to fulfill all of the paper demands of some private holders who were foolish enough to hold paper - they will be hurt.
Next, the dollar will have to be revalued, the way the UK did a few decades ago. At the same time, the US goes back on the gold standard. This doesn't mean we trade just gold coins, but it does mean that there will be no Federal Reserve, and there will be a constitutional amendment to keep the government from ever devaluing the paper dollar by more than 10%, and only during times of war.
Banks will no longer be able to loan money more than seven times their deposits and they will have to always hold 50% or greater of deposits in gold. All loans must be pristine. Banks will no longer be able to trade on the stock market, nor invest from their own accounts. Any company can can acquire vertically, but never horizontally - monopolies will again be forbidden. In other words, we go back to the 50's which worked, unlike this voodoo economics with Obama as the chief warlock.
Finally, public schools need be given heavy incentives to make all students take basic economics, using the sins of Progressivism to show economic stupidity as the wickedness it is, and the understanding that Keynes was just plain damn wrong.
WHAT THE MEDIA WON'T REPORT ABOUT ILLEGALS IN AMERICA
The following is a comment by a Trump supporter to an article on YAHOO.COM news section about how "helpful" illegals are to the US economy. I'm not sure if it will still be there, but HERE is the link as we received and researched it [14:12 | 20150731] The short version is that illegals take far more from the economy than they add, because the ones on government assistance are spending TAXPAYER money. If they ALL were made to leave and anchor baby system were ended.. well. read the article..
Trump is right....
What if 20 Million Illegal Aliens were deported from America?
Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News wrote a column titled, "Mexican Visitor's Lament".
I interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while visiting Denver last week. Hernandez said, "illegal aliens pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes. What Happens to your country's economy if 20 million people go away?" Hmmm, I thought, what would happen?
So I did my due diligence, buried my nose as a reporter into the FACTS I found below.
It's a good question it deserves an honest answer. Over 80% of Americans demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped. But what would happen if all 20 million or more vacated America ? The answers I found may surprise you!
In California , if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico, it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupt hospitals and overrun prisons. It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested. Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominant language again.
In Colorado, 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and grandchildren would move back 'home', mostly to Mexico ... That would save Colorado an estimated $2 billion (other experts say $7 billion) annually in taxes that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration costs. It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone.
Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens. Denver Officer Don Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered death, accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals.
Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67% dropout/flunk rate because of thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41different languages.. At least 200,000 vehicles would vanish from our grid locked cities in Colorado . Denver 's 4% unemployment rate would vanish as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage.
In Florida , 1.5 million illegals would return the Sunshine State back to America , the rule of law, and English.
In Chicago, Illinois , 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free experience.
If 20 million illegal aliens returned 'home', the U.S. Economy would return to the rule of law.Employers would hire legal American citizens at a living wage. Everyone would pay their fair share of taxes because they wouldn't be working off the books. That would result in an additional $401 Billion in IRS income taxes collected annually, and an equal amount for local, state and city coffers.
No more push '1' for Spanish or '2' for English. No more confusion in American schools that now must contend with over 100 languages that degrade the educational system for American kids. Our overcrowded schools would lose more than two million illegal alien kids at a cost of billions in ESL and free breakfasts and lunches.
We would lose 500,000 illegal criminal alien inmates at a cost of more than $1.6 billion annually. That includes 15,000 MS-13 gang members who distribute $130 billion in drugs annually would vacate our country.
In cities like L.A. , 20,000 members of the ' 18th Street Gang' would vanish from our nation. No more Mexican forgery gangs for ID theft from Americans! No more foreign rapists and child molesters!
Losing more than 20 million people would clear up our crowded highways and gridlock. Cleaner air and less drinking and driving American deaths by illegal aliens!
America 's economy is drained. Taxpayers are harmed. Employers get rich. Over $80 billion annually wouldn't return to the aliens' home countries by cash transfers. Illegal migrants earned half that money untaxed, which further drains America 's economy which currently suffers an $1 7 trillion debt.
At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, costing us $109 billion per year per cycle. At least 86 hospitals in California , Georgia and Florida would still be operating instead of being bankrupt out of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTOLA Act. Americans wouldn't suffer thousands of TB and hepatitis cases rampant in our country-brought in by illegals unscreened at our borders.
Our cities would see 20 million less people driving, polluting and grid locking our cities. It would also put the 'progressives' on the horns of a dilemma; illegal aliens and their families cause11% of our greenhouse gases.
Over one million of Mexico's poorest citizens now live inside and along our border from Brownsville, Texas to San Diego, California in what the New York Times called, 'colonias' or new neighborhoods. Trouble is, those living areas resemble Bombay and Calcutta where grinding poverty, filth, diseases, drugs, crimes, no sanitation and worse. They live without sewage, clean water, streets, roads, electricity, or any kind of sanitation.
The New York Times reported them to be America's new ' Third World ' inside our own country.Within 20 years, at their current growth rate, they expect 20 million residents of those colonias. (I've seen them personally in Texas and Arizona ; it's sickening beyond anything you can imagine.)
By enforcing our laws, we could repatriate them back to Mexico . We should invite 20 million aliens to go home, fix their own countries and/or make a better life in Mexico . We already invite a million people into our country legally more than all other countries combined annually. We cannot and must not allow anarchy at our borders, more anarchy within our borders and growing lawlessness at every level in our nation.
It's time to stand up for our country, our culture, our civilization and our way of life Interesting Statistics!
Here are 13 reasons illegal aliens should vacate America, and I hope they are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them:
$14 billion to $22 billion dollars are spent each year on welfare to illegal aliens. (that's Billion with a 'B')
$7.5 billion dollars are spent each year on Medicaid for illegal aliens.
$12 billion dollars are spent each year on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they still cannot speak a word of English!
$27 billion dollars are spent each year for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.
$3 Million Dollars 'PER DAY' is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. That's $1.2 Billion a year.
28% percent of all federal prison inmates are illegal aliens.
$190 billion dollars are spent each year on illegal aliens for welfare & social services by the American taxpayers.
$200 billion dollars per year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.
The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that's two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US ...
During the year 2005, there were 8 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our southern border with as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from other terrorist countries.Over 10,000 of those were middle-easternterrorists. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin, crack, Guns, and marijuana crossed into the U.S. from the southern border.
The National Policy Institute, estimates that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion, or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period and nbsp;
In 2006, illegal aliens sent home $65 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin, to their families and friends.
The dark side of illegal immigration: Nearly one million sex crimes are committed by illegal immigrants in the United States !
Total cost a whopping $538.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!!
Yes, people who speak Spanish can add wonderfully to our American melting pot. But not illegally. The right thing IS the legal thing.
501 - SEE? 3? 4?
Some time around 1986 (During the Clinton Administration, for those of you who are digitally challenged), there was passed something(s) called 501 (c) 3 and 501 (c) 4.
Without trying to lose you in definitions that are, at best, sleep-inducing, let's just all agree that their definition of non-political is poorly defined, at best. Even the most hardened Progressive will admit to that.
Today, with little or no prior heralding, and almost no access, save that of Fox News online, Sen. Ted Cruz held a hearing in which some amazing things were revealed. Yes, IRS Commissioner Koskinen was caught in several prevarications or "misstatements of fact." But the real surprises came in casually mentioned facts.
Did you know that the Department of Justice did not even take the ball up in order to drop it, when it came to investigating the IRS for using their power to restrict activities of conservative groups? Were you aware that there is an email from the hiding former IRS operative, Lois Lerner, which basically makes her out to be the villain in most of these affairs? No? Not even?
Well, of course not. While pleading that there WERE "studies" of the egregious offenses of the Obama Administration, NOTHING has been done. The most amazing thing that was mentioned today, almost off the cuff, that the finger of truth is pointing evermore directly at the President, himself, as the originator of the IRS offenses. If true, that would be a change in both the direction of the origination of who is giving and getting that finger.
REVENGE OF THE RADICAL MIDDLE
BY: Matthew Continetti
Washington Free Beacon
Two decades ago, in the spring of 1996, Newsweek magazine described a group of voters it called the "radical middle." Formerly known as the Silent Majority, then the Reagan Democrats, these voters had supported Ross Perot in 1992, and were hoping the Texas billionaire would run again. Voters in the radical middle, Newsweek wrote, "see the traditional political system itself as the countryâ€™s chief problem."
The radical middle is attracted to populists, outsiders, businessmen such as Perot and Lee Iacocca who have never held office, and to anyone, according to Newsweek, who is the "tribune of anti-insider discontent." Newt Gingrich rallied the radical middle in 1994â€”year of the Angry White Maleâ€”but his Republican Revolution sputtered to a halt after the government shut down over Medicare in 1995. Once more the radical middle had become estranged from the GOP. "If Perot gets in the race," a Dole aide told Newsweek, "it will guarantee Clintonâ€™s reelection." Read more, here.
If you read this column with any regularity, you know we're pretty hard on our Senior Senator. But this one time, considering the self-deprecation vs. The Donald's Giant Phone Number Ego Trip, and especially this week, Sen. Graham has responded with something genuinely funny. Watch.
IT'S 1938 ALL OVER AGAIN
Dennis Prager is one of the smarter people on planet Earth. When he says something, it's usually after he has researched and internally discussed it, so that his conclusions are well thought out. Other people have come to the conclusion that we have reached a "Munich" moment, but you will not get a reasoned out explanation as well as Prager's.
We say that evil is dark. But this metaphor is imprecise. Evil is actually intensely bright, so painfully bright that people look away from it. Many even deny its existence.
Why? Because once people acknowledge evilâ€™s existence, they know they have to confront it. And most people prefer not to confront evil.
Neville Chamberlain, in 1938, had the best of intentions calling his agreement with Hitler "Peace for Our Time," and millions died because of it. Barack Obama may have the best of intentions, too.
That is what led to World War II. Many in the West denied the darkness of Nazism. They looked the other way when that evil could have been stopped and then appeased it as it became stronger.
We are reliving 1938. British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain went to Munich to negotiate with Adolf Hitler. He left believing Hitlerâ€™s promises of peace in exchange for Germany being allowed to annex large parts of Czechoslovakia. Upon returning to England, Chamberlain announced, â€œPeace for our time.â€
The American and European negotiations with Iran have so precisely mirrored 1938 that you have to wonder how anyone could not see it.
The Nazi regimeâ€™s great hatred was Jews. Iranâ€™s great hatred is the Jewish state. The Nazisâ€™ greatest aim was to exterminate the Jews of Europe. Iranâ€™s greatest aim is to exterminate the Jewish state. Nazi Germany hated the West and its freedoms. The Islamic Republic of Iran hates the West and its freedoms. Germany sought to dominate Europe. Iran seeks to dominate the Middle East and the Muslim world.
And exactly as Britain and France appeased Nazi Germany, the same two countries along with the United States have chosen to appease Iran.

IT'S GOTTA BE THE HEAT
When Republicans are in charge of things, we call these days when the summer takes over from good sense, "The Silly Season." People, whom you would never expect to do so, say the dumbest things and expect people to agree. NOAA, f'r'instance, is calling July the "hottest month on record," which is silly, because they don't count some of the very hottest days, and have actually screwed with the summer temperatures, LOWERING them, so that it would look like it's hotter, now.
Or, how about, when a kid in Chattanooga, obviously programmed by Islamicist terrorists, does what his Islamicist-inspired programming tells him to do, in the name of Allah, it's all about deflection and being oh, so careful, as if the event is de novo. Even the CIA has warned, even if subtly, that certain of our children are being programmed to shoot up a gun-free zone. Why the silly surprise? Military can't be armed and should take off their uniforms and huddle in a shop? Silly.
Democrats are eating each other, especially the far-far-far Left - those who want not to work for a living but want to be paid a "fair" wage for nothing. They're giving Bernie Sanders - the only one who actually believes people should be given wages for no work - a hard time.
Anyway, I'm thinking that it's the heat. People have really bad memories when it comes to weather. In a way, that's a good thing, because it means we are gaining more and better control of the way the weather effects us. But it's also instructive about why people can be so different when the weather is hot.
SEND IN THE CLOWNS
Saturday, the KKK and their counterpart, The Black Panthers, will be lollygagging around the Statehouse. If you want a good, hardy laugh, don't bother going there, adding to the confusion and resulting self-humiliation - watch it on the news Saturday night.
UPDATE: Yes, it WAS worth watching, but the local Columbia media failed us, as usual. Kudos to Channels 7 and 4 for their coverage. See what a nice bowl of popcorn and a couple of good news outlets can do for your Saturday Night entertainment?
I was completely OK with the idea of Operation Jade Helm being just a really neat cross-country military exercise. That was, until I discovered what "J.A.D.E. H.E.L.M. stood for.
The letters J-A-D-E stand for "Joint Assistant for Deployment and Execution." And the letters H-E-L-M stand for â€œHomeland Eradication of Local Militants.â€ Homeland Eradication of Local Militants. Really? Eradication of Local Militants. What the Fork is the government doing, even kidding about this stuff? GAH! Maybe Texans aren't so crazy after all.
FOOLS' SILVER (AND GOLD)
There is a puzzle which silver collectors believe they have solved, but big banks desperately want you to ignore. Just this past weekend, the US Mint, which produces half the silver coinage consumed on the North American Continent (Canada produces the other half), ran out of silver coins. At the same time, the price of silver coins fell. That's right, FELL.
The beautiful March of Dimes 2015 Silver Dollar with FDR and Dr. Jonas Salk. They ran out of silver and can't print any more for a little while. Silver is actually scarce. But the price is at historic lows.
How is this possible? What about the Velocity of Money? What about Price following Supply?
What savvy Silver investors are coming to realize is that the Big Banks which sold them their silver, can't deliver it, because THEY DON'T HAVE IT. And what's happening is that, by selling silver that doesn't exist, you can depress the price â€“ as long as you don't have to deliver it.
And they don't deliver it. Instead, Big Banks sell ignorant investors a piece of paper, SAYING they own a certain amount of silver. It's called paper Silver (or paper Gold). Real money has been paid to Big Banks in return for a piece of paper.
Ponzi. Was, is, and always will be. With the silver dollar, the government ran the ponzi scheme - the silver wasn't there, either. Today, the paper is a Big Bank document.
As long as not too many people ask to have their paper converted into actual silver, the lie remains invisible. If EVERYONE were to ask for their actual specie at the same time, the Big Bank COULD NOT REMAIN SOLVENT.
In case you didnâ€™t already spot it, this setup is called a "Ponzi Scheme." And this is the reality, right now. Right now, the Big Banks can not cover their precious metal debt. Incidentally, neither can the FED or the IMF.
Has YOUR broker put you in an account that "holds" your silver or gold for you? It's the same thing. Truly. Try to take possession of your gold or silver â€“ I challenge you. If you're lucky, you might get some. If not, you won't be able to get any, depending on where you are in line. In many cases, your contract specifically states you CAN'T take possession!
Better yet, don't be stupid. Take possession from the beginning. While you can.
THESE THINGS HAPPEN
I got an email from a climatologist acquaintance of mine, today. He wanted to know if I was just kidding or not. I told him I was deadly serious and that he should prepare himself. But he was glad to hear that it would be at least 12 years before what I said came true.
The event that prompted his email was the release of a study from a group of scientists who are considered tops in their fields. Their methods are repeatable and follow, strictly, the scientific method - something you can't say for climatologists. The study, led by Dr. Valentina Zharkova, Ph.D., shows a double-wave Maunder Minimum, sometime between 2025-2030. Here's what that is.
The last time the Sun did this in THIS particular way, it was so cold that the Thames froze over (the painting) and soldiers froze to death at Valley Forge.
For those who don't want to read through the article, the last time the Sun did this in THIS particular way, it was so cold that the Thames froze over and soldiers froze to death at Valley Forge. It stayed cold for two stretches of 200 years. It was called "The Little Ice Age." Don't bother with Wikipedia on this one. They're still quoting the IPCC, which has been completely discredited, due to lying and cheating.) Here's an even-handed article.
Anyway, two years ago, I confronted this acquaintance on his theories and asked him where the Sun fit into his calculations. It was then that he said the Sun didn't matter - that by 2030 New York City will be under water. Naturally, I challenged him that, if he was wrong, could I come to his home and beat him to death with a cricket bat? He said, "Fine."
NOW.. Now he's emailing me, asking if I was kidding! After he snottied at me and ponced around the podium, snarling and gesticulating and pretending he knew what the heck he was talking about.
Well, he didn't. And there will be heck to pay! Like GÃ¶tterdÃ¤mmerung and the death of Yggdrasil the World Tree, when the Bifrost Witch shows up at our doors, I will be there at his, with my cricket bat. I won't hurt him, but I will get the local news people to be there, while I "micro-aggress" him.
DO WE REALLY WANT A MONARCH?
Immigration reform is stupid. The laws we have contain everything we need to charge illegals with a felony, if they return after being arrested and deported. Even the first breaking of the law is a misdemeanor, punishable by deportation.
Barack Hussein Obama is personally responsible for the hundreds of murders committed by illegal felons since 2009.
The reason our President is responsible, is because he has directed his justice department to obstruct the fulfillment of the immigration laws. I donâ€™t care why he has done it - the road to Hell is strewn with good intentions. The fact is he HAS done it and the country is suffering because of it.
National Democrats are running around as if their underwear were on fire, trying to justify THEIR defying of the immigration laws, as well. Theyâ€™re actually blaming an M-rated shooter video game, rather than themselves, for supporting patently illegal "sanctuary cities," in the shooting of a young woman in San Francisco by an illegal with lots of felonies (he was let go at least 7 times.)
Now, Bill O and others are calling for an addition to the immigration laws. The problem is, it doesn't need passing. We have all the law we need. What is missing is a President who doesn't ignore the laws and constitution of our country.
There is a remedy for all this murder and turpitude. The President could be removed from office. Impeached. Convicted. For not executing the law, and thereby causing the deaths of so many. The only problem is that those who are ruling by bait & switch, and their political operatives, do not want to surrender their biggest weapon â€“ white guilt. And it's not just the NAACP and other racist organizations. Congressional counterparts would also immediately claim racism, were Obama to be impeached. To boot, most of the House and Senate don't even have the guts to tell their own constituents what they're thinking, much less consider impeachment. Of course the pathetic Mainstream Media would pontificate, as well, on how evil the Congress was.
Do we really want to be ruled? - it IS easier than being free..
I am working on a theory of politics which basically asks the question, "Does any majority eventually want to live under a benign monarch?" Looking at South Carolina over the past year, it has been uncomfortable to watch the number of citizens who are more interested in the beer they drink than the rights they have surrendered to liberal lawmakers in DC. It's hard to tell whether our people just don't know what to do, or really just don't care.
It's said that only a third of the colonies' citizens actually fought in the Revolution of 1776 â€“ 2/3rds either didn't care or were actively for staying under King George III. Would it do any good to remind people of this fact, and that we are there, again. Isnâ€™t it so much easier just to deny that things really are as bad financially, morally, and politically as they are? Isn't it easier to give way to Hobbes and forget about Locke? Maybe divine right really is left?
And the odd part is that we don't even need to shoot anybody. But the honest moral thing is much harder. We have to come together to outvote the destroyers of freedom, and the wealth and morality that goes with it. And that is going to take a great deal of courage and discipline.
POLS & POLLS & THE POLIS
What-What-WHAT? I'm thinking of a word that rhymes with "coarse-fit." The Political PR Clacks SWORE to us that they had made changes in their polling behavior and that they had learned soooo much from the election of 2014. Well, the Pols were wrong.
So, here we are, again. And the polls were WRONG. The Polis (ancient Greek for "the citizens") have voted.
The South Can Learn from Japan
Why do you think the Japanese film audiences revel in a time of Samurai and Shoguns, Katana and Sepuku , strictly adhered to loyalty, and absolute courtesy? One reason is that their ethos exists on a river of contradictions. The noble robber, the pure hooker/Geisha - real neo-classicism with a bowl of rice and fish.
Twice, Gojira , pure force of nature kinda saves Japan after pretty much leveling the city of Peace. Rip-snorter. But there is more. Savvy Japan watchers will recognize the symbolism as pre war - a time of honor. - Chushingura and the 47 Ronin - a time before the terror of WWII vented on China. Perfect example.
My point is simple. If we southerners write about the mutual struggle of blacks and whites in the horror that was reconstruction, not just one or the other, then goodness will follow and strengthen the arts, as will every South Carolinian.
I have great faith that we will make a great contract of faith and mutual certainty.
