Obama's Nancy Pelosi Moment in Brisbane

Gary Fouse

Hat tip Breitbart and Gateway Pundit

"Himmler? He was just some adviser who never worked on our staff."

As President Obama spoke before the press as part of the G-20 conference in Brisbane, Australia, the subject of Jonathan Gruber came up in a question. Obama tried to downplay Gruber's role in formulating Obamacare.


"...just some adviser who never worked on our staff."

Not only was this guy paid close to $400,000 for his services, but according to Gruber's  account on video, he was in the Oval Office with Obama when the problem of the so-called Cadillac Tax was "worked out".

Nancy Pelosi this past week claimed she didn't know who Gruber was even though she brought up his name, his analysis of Obamacare, and the fact that he was from MIT in 2009. That's all on tape as we now know. Now Obama tells reporters in Brisbane that Gruber was "just some adviser who never worked on our staff".

There is dignity in defying death

Revelation 21:4New American Standard Bible (NASB) 

and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”

Death is a part of life. There is no escaping this and it will come to all of us. How death is viewed in this country leaves much to be desired. At least for me it does. Every life is precious or is it? I find it deeply disturbing how casually life is thrown away. When we as a society so easily look the other direction and murder the most vulnerable, the unborn, the elderly, the disabled, we have lost some of our compassion for others and for life itself.

Commentary: There’s dignity in defying death

By Christine M. Flowers

The seamless vision of life, as the late Cardinal Joseph Bernardin once noted, is the only way to ensure individual dignity. We are only as strong as the weakest links in our human chain, so the way we treat the young, the sick and the elderly is the truest bell weather of our evolution as a compassionate society.

Lately, though, that compassion has been lacking, and I suspect it’s due in no small part to our cavalier attitude toward unborn life. If you are capable of dehumanizing something at its most elemental level and packaging it as a wholly dependent appendage of a woman, it’s a short step from there to seeing older and ailing Americans as dependent appendages of society. Of course, we don’t put it in exactly those terms. No, we’re a lot smarter than that, which is how the terms “pro-choice” and “death with dignity” entered the popular lexicon. In “Through the Looking Glass,” Humpty Dumpty gives a fairly good summary of the nihilistic game plan so many of the pro-choice and pro-euthanasia people subscribe to: “When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.”

So when the rights brigade start on about the “right to choose” and the “right to die” and the “right to be left alone,” they are asserting dominion over the language that they use to make their narrow and specific points. But those who oppose abortion are not generally allowed to call ourselves “pro-life” in the media, as I myself found out when I once put that term in a column and it miraculously morphed into “anti-abortion.” Humpty was apparently a social progressive.

To those of you who kept reading after you heard the word “abortion,” my thanks. And to reward you for your perseverance, I will now get to the point.

Recently, a young woman named Brittany Maynard took her own life. I would have said “killed herself” but that doesn’t fully express the motivation behind her act. Maynard was suffering from a terminal form of cancer, and decided that she didn’t want to put herself or her family through the final months of debilitating pain. I understand that, of course, and I have some empathy for her predicament given the fact that my father died a long and lingering death from lung cancer. It was a time of pain and horror.

What I don’t understand is the way that Maynard announced to the world, almost as if she were challenging us to evolve to some higher level of consciousness, that she would take ownership of her own presence on this earth and its significance. Maynard did not kill herself. She “took” back what she thought she owned, her life. This presupposes that her highest obligation was to herself, and that she was her own “keeper,” so to speak. That is a dangerous point of view, because it flows directly from the idea that we are all separate, unconnected islands in this vast ocean of humanity and are ultimately alone.

This is the same mentality that motivated Ezekiel Emmanuel to write his notorious essay in the Atlantic, expressing a hope that he would die by the age of 70 so as not to “burden” society. At least Emmanuel was considering the impact his life would have on others, albeit in a very negative way. He didn’t want to upset anyone, so he made a vow to bow out, stage left, when he became “troublesome” to his family and friends. I suspect that if he’d asked, those friends and family would have begged him to complete the contract he’d made with God and science and keep the machine operating until its natural end. I’m fairly certain that what he viewed as a potential burden was, for them, a gift. But that wouldn’t have advanced his almost Darwinian view of survival.

As someone whose brother took his own life for reasons that, to this day, we do not know, I am fully aware of the power of autonomy. Maynard said that she felt less fearful because she could choose the hour and moment of her death. And as someone whose father was in excruciating pain and yet raged against the dying of the light, at the end, I know how strong the survival instinct can be if we don’t extinguish it with rhetoric about “dignified deaths.”

This past week, folks in Philadelphia heard the story of a little boy who was beaten to death by his mother and her boyfriend, an act so vile that even those of us who’ve been jaded by daily violence had to take a step back in horror. While there is no direct connection between the evil in a criminal’s soul and the desire to escape a painful death, both acts exist on the same continuum which quantifies the value of a life by how much pleasure it gives us.

To me, true dignity lies in cherishing the life that we are given in custody, whether in our wombs or in ourselves. It exists even in the face of pain and regret for lost possibilities.

Dylan Thomas wrote “and death shall have no dominion.”

We, the defiant steel links in the human chain, can be proof of that.

The Cameron Creature

“In making this speech I claim no religious authority whatsoever.” - David Cameron. [1]

“I'm not a scholar of any religion.” - David Cameron. [2]

Lee Rigby was a 25 year old drummer who served with the Second Fusiliers in the British Army in Cyprus, Germany and Afghanistan, where he was part of the Fire Support Group at Patrol Base Woqab. He was a young father and a lifelong supporter of Manchester United. On 22nd May 2013, he was murdered while walking along the street in London, the capital of Great Britain. [3]

Michael Adebolajo, one of the murderers, was caught red-handed by a passerby who filmed him on their mobile phone at the scene of the crime. Holding a dagger and a meat cleaver, Adebolajo stated clearly that he was following commands found in the Koran. He specifically cited surah at-taubah, the ninth surah of Islam's foundational text. [4]

Following the brutal murder of a British soldier by two devout Muslims carrying meat cleavers and daggers, Cameron stood in front of the TV cameras, adopted a very stern face indeed, and asserted that there were no Islamic doctrines that justified such savagery. Then he flew off to Ibiza for a few days in the sun with the wife. [5]

In recent months we have witnessed the rise of Al Qaeda in Iraq, which has been re-branded as the Islamic State. [6] The atrocities committed by the Islamic State are almost beyond comprehension. In the face of savagery that can only be compared to the Nazi actions carried out in Eastern Europe during WWII, David Cameron has said that although he knows nothing about Islamic doctrines and practices, he believes that Islam is a religion of peace, because he once met a woman from Birmingham who happened to be a Muslim, and he liked the cut of her jib. [7]

What Cameron has done here is make an I proposition; where the subject term is Muslims and the predicate term is peaceful people, Cameron's assertion is that Some S are P. That is the only proposition that his evidence supports. It can be shown using a Venn diagram (where x ≥ 1):

Cameron's I Proposition

In logical terms, Cameron's I proposition is quite different from the corresponding A proposition (All S are P), as we can see by looking at another Venn diagram (where the hash marks indicate that a category is empty):

The corresponding A proposition

Clearly the two propositions are different. It is important to understand that Cameron's evidence only supports the I proposition. And if an I proposition is true, it does not follow that the corresponding A proposition is true.

It is possible to see a marmalade cat walking along the street, and to say truthfully that at least one cat is a marmalade cat (Some S are P) but obviously, that is not the same thing as saying that all cats are marmalade cats, nor does it follow that all cats are marmalade cats (All S are P).

That is the logical error that Cameron wants you to make. However, the truth is that although some Muslims are peaceful, there are some who are violent, and there are some who may not be violent but who share the beliefs and goals of the Islamic State. [8] The new reality in Britain is that Muslims are being arrested every other day for planning to commit acts of terrorism. The political elite no longer mention the terrorist attacks of 7/7, but that did happen in our country. The wife of one of the terrorists who perpetrated that attack was wanted around the world after she entered her husband's line of work (until the Russians allegedly shot her dead.) And we all know that gangs of sexual predators have been raping thousands of young girls throughout England for years. Where the subject term is Muslims and the predicate term is peaceful people, it is obvious to anyone living in the real world that the O proposition (Some S are not P) is true.

The O proposition (where the subject term is not distributed)

Cameron tries to deny this by saying that the Muslims of the Islamic State are not real Muslims. [9] As any philosophy graduate will tell you, this is an blatant example of the 'No True Scotsman' fallacy, and as such, Cameron's statement can be ignored.

The reality is that where the subject term is Muslims and the predicate term is peaceful people, the I proposition (Some S are P) and the O proposition (Some S are not P) are subcontraries, therefore they can both be true. And reality shows that both propositions are true.

We need politicians who are able to accept that fact, and who are willing to do something about it. Before the Scottish referendum, the political elite sang the praises of the United Kingdom, and talked about how much traditional British values meant to them. The fact of the matter is, some thirteen years after the political elite secretly initiated a social engineering program in order to alter the social fabric of our country, the British public has sacrificed enough in the name of the radical multi-cultists' extreme Weltanschauung. It is high time we had politicians who did more than speak fine words about British values in order to keep their positions of power. We need new politicians who are willing to turn their backs on the European power machinery, who have the intellectual courage to take on and defeat the radical multi-cultists embedded within our society, and who understand that they have a duty to do what they are employed by us to do. We need politicians who will put our interests first.

Winston Churchill was a huge political figure, one of the finest writers Britain has ever produced, and if half the stories about him are true, he was able to hold his drink remarkably well. He stood against Nazi Germany when no one else did, and after he became Prime Minister, he inspired his countrymen and women to stand alongside him. Winston Churchill was a prince among men, and what's more, he was a Machiavellian prince who lived in the real world, and knew how to get his hands dirty. [10] In one of his books, The Gathering Storm, Churchill pointed the finger of blame at the British politicians whose 'delight in smooth-sounding platitudes' and 'refusal to face unpleasant facts' gave evil men the opportunity to unleash upon the world 'horrors and miseries which, even as far as they have unfolded, are already beyond comparison in human experience.' [11]

David Cameron is cut from the same cloth as the politicians who were condemned by Churchill for their failure to act in the best interests of the British state in the run-up to the war. There have always been evil men and women on this earth, and the times we live in now are no different in that regard. Cameron simply does not have it in him to deal with that reality.

What the members of the Westminster elite need to remember is that we have the power to terminate their political careers. There is a general election scheduled for May 2015, and if anyone needs to experience what it is like to be out of work, it is the man currently pretending to be a Prime Minister. Unfortunately, we are not going to be able to bring all of the men and women who have been trying to ruin our country to justice. Every single person who played a part in allowing those young girls in Rotherham to be raped by gangs of sexual predators in the name of multiculturalism, for example, should see the inside of a jail cell. What we can do is make sure that David Cameron is handed his P45 next year. On the second anniversary of Lee Rigby's murder, Cameron can head off for another holiday in Ibiza, only this time there will be no reason for him to come back.

Mia Love Gets the Aunt Jemima Treatment From Wichita State University Professor

Gary Fouse

Hat tip Campus Reform

It is really ugly how the Democrats and the left are dismissing the elections of black Republicans like Mia Love (UT) and Tim Scott (SC). Here is what Asst. Professor Darren Smith of Wichita State University has to say about Ms Love.


“Unlike most of them, Mia gets to walk through the hallowed doorways of white institutions controlled by elite, powerful men"

Kinda like you, right Professor Smith?

This is pure racist garbage designed to keep blacks on the liberal, Democratic plantation and punish those who think for themselves. It is the same type of disgusting treatment handed out by people like Smith to Thomas Sowell, Shelby Steele, Larry Elder, and so many others.

It also puts the lie to the mantra that American who op[pose President Obama are racists who could not bring themselves to vote for or accept a black man in the White House. Yet here we have voters in South Carolina overwhelmingly electing Scott and voters in, gasp, Mormon Utah electing Love.

You see, Professor Smith, it is not about the race; it is about the policies of the candidate. Conservative white voters are happy to vote for a conservative black candidate who reflects their beliefs. How else would you explain the popularity of Allen West with the Tea Party?

Yet, this is the type of trash that our students in college are being subjected to. Do parents who foot the tuition costs really want to pay for their kids to be indoctrinated by professors who get up on a soapbox and preach their own opinions-especially when they are so hateful and divisive as this?
