      Neglect Starts at Home

      How about we CUT the $$$ and restart aid ONLY with oversight? That will help prevent the ugly corruption and outright theft by leaders of countries that have been allowed to take our money, use it to indulge the elites of those country (who are protecting their wealth and power) and then send those they neglect to the US so that we can take care of them with additional taxpayer money?

      Talk about adding insult to injury!

      ENOUGH with these false liberal memes of "kids being trafficked into sex slavery." Have they taken a look at the registry of missing teenagers in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?

      As has been noted more and more each day - have these liberal whiners looked at the victims of violence in OUR OWN CITIES?

      Once again, liberals force Conservatives to be the grown-ups - the "bad cop" parents, in order to do what's best.

      Here's a list of the South America countries1 that received the most aid - millions of US $$$:

      Argentina 83.7
      Belize 28.3
      Chile 161.4
      Colombia 1024.5
      Costa Rica 38.4
      Ecuador 162.6
      El Salvador 280.8
      Guatemala 391.8
      Honduras 624.0
      Mexico 958.2
      Nicaragua 695.0
      Panama 109.9
      Paraguay 93.7
      Peru 599.2
      Uruguay 15.1
      Venezuela 44.5
      Bolivia 728.7
      Guyana 158.5
      Suriname 94.6

      Bear in mind that the topic of foreign aid,as it relates to the illegal immigrants crashing our southern borders, is only one small factor in the broad scope of multiple crises these immigrants bring with them - ranging from our national security and our citizens' health to making U.S. taxpayers liable for the expense of hiring interpreters for the majority of non-English speaking immigrants to providing personal hygiene products and much more.

      So, what can we do to help push back on the federal government that refuses to bend to the Will of the People who want our borders secured, illegal aliens deported back to their home countries and our immigration laws enforced?

      In addition to attending rallies and protests, we can share inarguable facts wherever and whenever we can - in blogs such as this; via e-mails; Tweets; Facebook posts; comments on other social network sites; and we can write "Letters to the Editors" of local papers (print and online); send, fax or e-mail copies of the letters to local, county, state, and national officials.

      We can make telephone calls to the same chain of people listed above and express our concerns. The truth is that America has always thrived "from the bottom, up". You might be amazed to see the influence of your voice when you let your City Council or local School Board Members know your feelings. They are connected to other officials "up the food chain" and your thoughts may just scurry right up the ladder to officials even to the national level.

      Obama Isn’t Laughing, 
      He’s Mocking 


      Here he is, the chief executive, he’s the president of the United 
      States and he is laughing about the things he’s doing, the things 
      he’s being accused of doing and the possibility of being sued, 
      slash, impeached over it. A lot of the commentary I saw was 
      people thinking, “You know, this is really disrespectful. This is
      very serious stuff, and he’s laughing about it?”

      DOJ investigates Nebraska 
      parade float critical of Obama


      The U.S. Department of Justice has sent a member of its 
      Community Relations Service team to investigate a Nebraska
      parade float that criticized President Obama.

      A Fourth of July parade float featured at the annual Independence 
      Day parade in Norfolk sparked criticism when it depicted a zombie-
      like figure resembling Mr. Obama standing outside an outhouse, 
      which was labeled the “Obama Presidential Library.”
      More Here:

      Are you kidding me?!?!? We should make sure there's a float
      critical of Obama in EVERY single parade in America, throughout
      the entire year. That would keep Big Brother hopping, huh?

      California Students Given Good 
      Grades for Holocaust-Denial Essays

      Earlier this year, eighth graders enrolled in the Rialto Unified 
      School District in Rialto, California were assigned a rather 
      questionable essay assignment: Did the Holocaust happen, 
      or was it "merely a political scheme created to influence 
      public emotion and gain wealth[?]"

      Australia Dumps Carbon Tax

      Much to the outrage of the global Green and warming alarmist cabal, Australian voters have been heard and Julia Gillard's carbon tax consigned to the dumpster of history.

      One thing you can be absolutely sure of, globally, there will be a 
      huge number of outraged Greens and warming alarmists because 
      Australia has dumped it’s carbon tax.

      This as the saying goes really is a double whammy, Australian PM 
      Tony Abbott is a politician who has actually kept his word and 
      dumped the hugely unsuccessful and deeply unpopular Carbon Tax, 
      that Labor PM Julia Gillard promised voters she would never 
      introduce, and then promptly broke her word.

      Obama ‘Forces’ Cities 
      To House Illegals

      The Obama administration, in July 2013, quietly introduced a
      new regulation

      This rule would allow HUD to influence zoning laws from the 
      biggest cities down to the tiniest towns.
      The proposed rule, which is set to take effect in October, would 
      put teeth on the Fair Housing Act of 1968 by providing a set of 
      standards, guidelines and goals, then use data to “measure” 
      and “assess” how well a local community is meeting its Fair 
      Housing obligations.

      Some say the new rule will lead to “racial quotas” and will be 
      exploited by HUD to aggressively absorb the nation’s swelling 
      population of illegal immigrants into communities that are 
      trying to keep them out.
      More Here:

      Every bit of this illegal immigrant invasion was pre-meditated,
      right down to the laws that would guarantee that no community
      would be spared if the Left chose theirs to be dumped on.
      This is classic central planning. I don't think many citizens 
      are going to enjoy, nor stand for, this New'Merica.

      Synthetic Organs

      In regards to the controversy regarding the use of embryonic stem 
      cells, scientists wanted to find a way to get easily-accessible stem 
      cells without crossing ethical boundaries. During some recent 
      research, American and Japanese scientists teamed together to 
      find an alternative way to get stem cells to research on, without 
      having the burden of society and the guilt of the destruction of 
      embryos to worry about. They found a safe process to remove skin 
      cells, convert them to stem cells, therefore making them ready to 
      use and develop into any other cell. The research is new and the 
      technology won't be around until some time; however, this proves 
      that there are alternative ways that can save the embryos and still 
      promote the research for stem cells and synthetic organs.

      How Does One Person Take Power Over a Nation?

      by Robert Arvay, Contributing Writer

      As a young boy, I watched in wonderment on a military base, a single officer giving the command to stand at attention, and dozens of soldiers stood at attention. He gave the order to “left face,” and those dozens of soldiers faced left. He told them, “forward march,” and forward they marched.

      I wondered why the soldiers did as they were told. I wondered how it was that this one officer could command them. Why was he the one in charge, and not one of the other men? Of course, my thoughts were not so precisely worded, but the questions have never left me. Indeed, over the years, the questions have only grown larger.

      Obama’s Speech on Foreign Crises (Parody)

      Hey dudes:

      What a mess, huh? I mean some days I just don’t want to watch the news. Every time I do, I find out stuff that just messes with my mind. Like the IRS and stuff.

      But you know, playing the part of president isn’t easy. I was told it would be, but it’s not as easy as I expected. Some of those golf courses are brutal.

      Anyway, as many of you might know, since you are reporters, the world has a lot of crises going on. Some of them are serious. Like, for example, what’s with the Washington Redskins? Why don’t they just change their name, like I did mine—whoops, pretend I didn’t say that.

      Then there’s this stuff going on in the Middle East, whatever, you know? I turn on the TV and there’s all this violence and killing and murder. Those people have no sense of respect for life. Oh wait, that’s the violence in Chicago and an abortion clinic. Forget I said that.

      Why are all these Americans upset at having thousands of kids being brought into the US? It’s not like they’re being sent into my daughter’s school or nothing. Hey, they’re escaping violence in their homeland, gangs and murders and—darn it, somebody change that channel from Chicago news, already, I keep mixing things up.

      We have serious crises to face, very serious. Why just the other day, Sarah Palin was accusing me of stuff. We can’t have that! She accused me of being pompous and arrogant. I’m too good to have anybody say that kind of stuff about me.

      And then there’s global warming. You people have just got to turn off your electricity, stop driving cars, and stuff like that. I’ve been working very hard to stop global warming, and I’m succeeding. Pretty soon, none of you will be able to afford cars, heating and air conditioning, except me and my friends.

      We have to get our priorities straight... Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to offend the gays.

      Finally, let me say this. A lot of my critics, you know, those evil people who hate me—they have accused me of not being tough enough on Iran, Russia, and Elbonia. I assure you, that from now on, I am going to get very tough with them. In fact, I am recruiting an army, an entire army, mind you, of speech writers, who are even now in the process of writing some of the toughest speeches I have ever seen. They are using words—tough words, like, “unacceptable” and “I’ll get to the bottom of this” and stuff like that there.

      When people hear those speeches, they are going to say, wow, that guy is really tough. And while they will be saying that about Vladimir Putin and not me, they will still be tough speeches. Not tough enough to offend the gays, but still, very tough.

      I'm Old School: In Honor of Grand Dad and Grand Ma

      by Nadra Enzi ("Cap Black"), Contributing Writer

      My maternal grandparents gave me my worldview. This worldview has been tested by time, challenges and exploration of many philosophies. That said, I've found nothing superior to their loving counsel and example from my childhood.

      Grand Dad bequeathed a moral code informed by the Bible and the Knights of the Round Table. He enriched my active imagination with his love of martial history, comic books, Westerns and pulp novel heroes. He personified what an intelligent, safety-conscious man should be. Little did I know how much I'd need such an example as inner-city America became a haven for thugs and real life zombies from the late 1980s forward.

      Grand Ma was the compassionate warrior, much loved by former students from her teaching career and someone who simply loved America enough to fight for it, if need be. From her I saw someone who demonstrated the power of Agape love and reverence. On the eve of big moments, she'd often advise me to say, "This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it." Her moral warnings echo in the background while waging the culture war against the left.

      As I take up their mantle, in my own Hood conservative way, I daily realize how I can't go wrong by following in the footsteps of a man who always prayed on his knees before going to bed and a woman who painfully drew herself to her full five feet, hand over her heart, whenever the National Anthem played on TV. That's an American Blackness and Americanism which seems in such short supply today!

      I'm old school in my advocacy, in honor of Grand Dad and Grand Ma and hope others do the same while all we hold dear is slowly deleted from America's social software!

      Yet Another Socialist Paradise is Collapsing

      by Robert Arvay, Contributing Writer

      Argentina is on the brink of defaulting on its debts. What this means is that, if its now worthless paper money is not accepted as full repayment of what it owes, then its assets are subject to seizure by creditors. Since much of Argentina’s assets are located outside of Argentina, the socialist nation’s urban economy will collapse, leaving its farmers in the proverbial driver seat, in control of the nation.

      Argentina’s farmers are now its only producers of real wealth, that is, food. The urban economy produces false wealth, that is, pieces of paper with numbers on them, promising to rob Peter to pay Paul and then promising to rob Paul, as well. These pieces of paper are not, however, nourishing to hungry city dwellers.

      The government does, however, have another form of real wealth: guns, ammunition and an army that, although incapable of defending the nation against foes like Britain (a la the Falklands War), is well practiced in the art of 'terrorizing' its citizens.

      A likely political move for Argentina: collectivizing its farms. We know how well that worked in Soviet-era Russia, with the starvation/extermination of 20 million Ukrainians in the 1920s. More recently, North Korea used the former USSR's method of execution when it starved a million of its peasants on its farming collectives. (By the word, “we,” I mean, of course, people who actually bother to follow the news, a slim minority of us, indeed.)

      It is questionable, however, whether the Argentine army can actually seize the farms and confiscate enough food from them to feed its people. Even if they can bully the farmers, soldiers likely cannot do the work required to raise crops. Farming is a lot more complicated than gardening. The farmers themselves may surrender, but how hard will they work to feed the army that is seizing their land?

      The politicians in Buenos Aires might try to strike some kind of deal, but unless they meet the demands of the farmers—and they will certainly not cede power to them—the result is going to be famine and civil riots in the cities. Buenos Aires is more than big enough to host a world-class food riot.

      The impending Argentine disaster is a warning to the United States and Western economies around the world. Central banks can print money, but they cannot grow food. In the US, the central bank is the Federal Reserve, and it has been printing paper money (or worse, just entering 'ones and zeroes' in computer databases) for years. Their intent is to hold down interest rates and impoverish citizens who depend on interest earnings on their savings to sustain them in their old age.

      The US is blessed with an adequate food supply, but millions of acres of farmland have already disappeared due to industrial growth and government regulation. Very few family farms remain, with big industrial corporations owning most food production.

      The US government may seize the assets of these companies by declaring a national emergency. It is questionable whether food production will then decrease as a result. An interruption in the food supply of only one week will empty the grocery shelves of major cities such as New York. Hungry New Yorkers will then arm themselves, and go on the hunt for the scarce reserves of food that might remain.

      Socialism has always put intense focus on the redistribution of wealth. When the 'wealth' finally runs out, its only remaining asset is brute force. Eventually, that too will be depleted because soldiers have to eat.

      RINOs Redux: McHale's Viewpoints

      RINOs? Again?!

      by Frank McHale

      Last year, I wrote a commentary called RINOs?, where I criticized Republicans generally, and conservative Republicans specifically, for using this term when discussing party members more than them. Republicans In Name Only are Republicans, folks. They certainly are not Democrats, are they? Or radical leftists? Certainly not Obamanuts.

      Guns: Good Policy versus Good Law

      by Robert Arvay, Contributing Writer

      Whenever there is a debate about a controversial law, the discussion tends to center around the question of whether the law promotes a good policy. The problem with this is that while most laws do promote good policies, they also promote bad ones at the same time. The unforeseen consequences, do not become known until the policy is so deeply embedded that the only way to correct it is to pass yet another law, risking yet more unforeseen consequences.
