Freedom is worth it-Geert Wilders

Geert Wilders is well known in the Counter Jihad movement.

Wilders has been a staunch freedom fighter and knows all too well the dangers of Islam and it's bastard child, sharia law.

Listen to what Wilders has to say here.

Freedom is worth it. Freedom is worth dying for.

From Gates Of Vienna.

“Freedom Is Worth It”

Last Thursday Geert Wilders was interviewed by the state broadcasting service in the Netherlands. He discussed the Islamization of Europe, and in particular the “Moroccan problem” in the Netherlands. He also spoke out against the European juggernaut, decrying the surrender of Dutch sovereignty to Brussels.

Many thanks to SimonXML for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

We Don't Stand A Chance ...

Unless WE THE PEOPLE stand up.  Today, tomorrow, every damn day!  Multiple times a day!  Not until this administration is brought to justice!

The following links are ALL important to watch/read.  Today they took me to the final point of this post where I question - is it already too frickin late? 

H/T - Benghazi Truth administrator on twitter @FrankMDavisJR  - who lead me to twitter's  Night Fury - who pointed the way to the blogger TRUTH who posted Obama's Plan To Destroy USA As We Know It - Starting this Spring - which takes us ultimately to  -


Excerpts - and if these few from the article don't get your hackles up, nothing ever will -

People better pay close attention over the next few months. First, there won’t be any meaningful deal about the fiscal crisis. This is planned, I mean, the lack of deal is planned. In fact, it’s necessary to pave the way for what is in the short term agenda.

The coming collapse of the U.S. dollar is a done deal. It’s been in the works for years—decades, and this is one of the most important cataclysmic events that DHS is preparing for. I almost think that DHS was created for that purpose alone, to fight Americans, not protect them, right here in America. But that’s not the only reason. There’s the gun issue too.

..there has been a lot of communication recently between Napolitano and Pistole [TSA head]. They are planning to use TSA agents in tandem with local police for certain operations that are being planned right now. This is so [deleted] important that you cannot even begin to imagine. If you get nothing else out of this, please, please make sure you tell people to watch the TSA and their increasing involvement against the American public. They are the stooges who will be the ones to carry out certain plans when the dollar collapses and the gun confiscation begins.

A lot of police departments are being gifted with federal funds with strings attached. That money is flowing out to municipal police departments faster than it can be counted. They are using his money to buy tanks, well, not real tanks, but you know what I mean. DHS is turning the police into soldiers.

First, DHS is preparing to work with police departments and the TSA to respond to civil uprisings that will happen when there is a financial panic. And there will be one, maybe as early as this spring, when the dollar won’t get you a gumball. I’m not sure what the catalyst will be, but I’ve heard rumblings about a derivatives crisis as well as an oil embargo. I don’t know, that’s not my department. But something is going to happen to collapse the dollar, which has been in the works since the 1990s. Now if it does not happen as soon as this, it’s because there are people, real patriots, who are working to prevent this, so it’s a fluid dynamic. But that doesn’t change the preparations.

So what I’m telling you is that DHS, the TSA and certain, but not all, law enforcement agencies are going to be elbow deep in riot control in response to an economic incident. At the same time or close to it, gun confiscation will start. It will start on a voluntary basis using federal registration forms, then an amnesty, then the kicking-in of doors start.

They already are in motion. If you’re looking for a date I can’t tell you. Remember, the objectives are the same, but plans, well, they adapt. They exploit. Watch how this fiscal cliff thing plays out. This is the run-up to the next big economic event.

I can’t give you a date. I can tell you to watch things this spring. Start with the inauguration and go from there. Watch the metals, when they dip. It will be a good indication that things are about to happen.

There is way too much to copy into this post - please read every word of it for yourselves - but I will add one more excerpt that looks you and me directly in the eyeballs and then let you take it from there -

The federal agencies have identified people who present a danger to them and their agendas. ...... It’s people that are just under the national radar but are effective. They have to worry. Those who have been publicly marginalized already but continue to talk or write or post, they are in trouble. It’s people who won’t sell out, who think that they can make a difference. Those are the people who have to worry.

Chills many yet peoples? 
My two cents in order of importance of individual and country survival:  

PRAY!

Lock - And - Load!  

PRAY!

Stay abreast of what information is being imparted by bloggers, those the founding fathers would have designated as part of a well regulated militia, who ARE involved and who do stand shoulder to shoulder defending Lady Liberty as she clashes with the enemy from within.  Four sites I go to every single day -
 
USE THE TOOLS:  The tabs on my home page have every congressional contact - physical addresses, web sites, email addresses, twitter addresses.   

And PRAY - at this time in America's history we need some very, special, backing.....

Future Obama Administration Propaganda Posters

Future Obama Administration Propaganda Posters


Taken from a Communist China propaganda poster which originally depicted the crushing of all things Capitalist, I removed the Chinese flags and replaced them with Obama logos with the Big Brother eye in the middle symbolizing the Orwellian lack of privacy and government spying that is currently occurring. Below the logo on the top right, I added the communist slogan of "Forward" that the Obama Administration uses along with at least one of their propaganda outlets <*cough MSNBC*>. I added guns to the items being crushed by the worker representing the state confiscation of guns and the crushing at least one of our rights as Americans.  The message on the top left intentionally implies a threat if you do not turn in your guns.
Always remember: Government = Force.

This is the future that we all need to fight against.

Filched with complete honor from Conservative Blogs Central and thanks to Mike Miles.

Look What We Found!

Slightly off-topic but interesting all the same, and I suppose, not entirely unrelated to the earlier post about the Canadian "no-management" firm: a group of small farmers in the north of England have gotten together and come up with a menu using fresh, home-grown produce. You can check out their website here. They have an online shop, & can deliver right to your door, no matter whereabouts in the UK you live (yes, even up in the frozen north.) They've also managed to get their products on the shelves of at least two of the huge supermarket chains that operate here in the UK. So good luck to them I say, these guys are working hard and have put in a big effort to come up with a good, fairly priced product. I just received a package from them today, so between that my Baxter's soup, I'm fairly well stocked up.

"First They Take Manhattan" then ...

Thinking out loud as that's how she rolls - just read or delete....

In my world - associations resonate between the death kneel imagery of the title of one of Leonard Cohen's songs, and what we are seeing in this country today of the insidious efforts of enacting more gun control ..First We Take Manhattan, Then We take Berlin.

Mr. Cohen introduced the song in 1988.  The original meaning of the lyrics seem to be lost in time, but a month after the first 9/11 terrorist attack he said in an interview - Ever succeeding moment changes what has happened the moment before. In the stream of writing, all that is written changes its meanings by what is written subsequently. "First We Take Manhattan" might be understood as an examination of the mind of the extremist. In a way it's a better song now (*) than it was before and I would probably sing it in concert if the circumstances were appropriate.

A search of YouTube shows he indeed seems to find the circumstances appropriate as there are numerous uploads of this song from concerts Mr. Cohen has done in 2012.  A lyric mid way stings - You know the way to stop me but you don't have the discipline.

A friend in conversation a few days ago - "For some reason a channel decided to do an "All In The Family" marathon. Turned to it.. they were discussing gun control ... the dialogue was EXACTLY what is being said today about it in the US!!! Straight off the current news reports! FORTY fricken years later and all that has changed is the body counts."

Well, no.  The drum beat of guns are bad, murderers aren't responsible, intensifies - daily!  Fortunately we now have the internet where the dirty works of our paid employees (politicians) are being exposed unlike forty years ago.  The reality is gun free zones only get a lot of folks killed.  Gun free Chicago (you know, Hussein Obama's stomping grounds) reported a day or so ago  it's 500th homicide in 2012! - h/t The Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler.   I didn't read much of any bible-thumpin-red-neck-tea-party involvement in any of it.  Actually, there was none.  So are we confused as to who that leaves as responsible?

Thomas Sowell - Guns are not the problem. People are the problem — including people who are determined to push gun-control laws, either in ignorance of the facts or in defiance of the facts.  There is innocent ignorance and there is invincible, dogmatic, and self-righteous ignorance. Every tragic mass shooting seems to bring out examples of both among gun-control advocates.

Either type of ignorance plays right into the hands of those who would disarm the American citizen and it is a major step on the march to tyranny. On that march - a few links you might find of interest -


One more - a piece Creeping Sharia has posted on multiple occasions.  A conversation with a Holocaust survivor.  The subject - how could it have happened?  What that march to tyranny looks like.  What that march feels like - - -  They Thought They Were Free.  

Your 'little men,' your Nazi friends, were not against National Socialism in principle. Men like me, who were, are the greater offenders, not because we knew better (that would be too much to say) but because we sensed better. Pastor Niemöller spoke for the thousands and thousands of men like me when he spoke (too modestly of himself) and said that, when the Nazis attacked the Communists, he was a little uneasy, but, after all, he was not a Communist, and so he did nothing; and then they attacked the Socialists, and he was a little uneasier, but, still, he was not a Socialist, and he did nothing; and then the schools, the press, the Jews, and so on, and he was always uneasier, but still he did nothing. And then they attacked the Church, and he was a Churchman, and he did something—but then it was too late.

“You see,” my colleague went on, “one doesn’t see exactly where or how to move. Believe me, this is true. Each act, each occasion, is worse than the last, but only a little worse. You wait for the next and the next. You wait for one great shocking occasion, thinking that others, when such a shock comes, will join with you in resisting somehow. You don’t want to act, or even talk, alone; you don’t want to ‘go out of your way to make trouble.’ Why not?—Well, you are not in the habit of doing it. And it is not just fear, fear of standing alone, that restrains you; it is also genuine uncertainty."

Mossy Oak NKJV Bible

I came across a firm called Mossy Oak not long ago. They appear to have some good kit, and I thought I'd buy a copy of their NKJV bible to carry around with me in the car, since I spend a lot of time on the road. It arrived yesterday, so I thought I'd put up a few photos. It's pretty good, the text is a decent size & it appears to be fairly robust, so I'm quite pleased with it overall. (Apologies if the photos aren't too great, I took them indoors, and I was trying to get some light shining on the table & at the same time hold my iPad with one hand & click the camera button with my thumb.)

The skills set of the Founding Fathers: Doing what Constitutional Conservatives do and beyond, seeking the truth!

There is a time for those of us who love our REPUBLIC to stand up to tyranny, government gone wild and the traitors who think they know what is best for all of us.

That time is now.

The worst of these traitors, those who hate the United States, our Constitution, AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM are exemplified by Barack Obama, his administration and those who believe in modern liberalism, statism or classical magical thinking.

For those of you who have any doubts about where I stand, what I stand for or why I share what I do here, you only have to read what is posted up here.

There are many who are wondering if all was lost after this last election and yes, conservatives took a beat down but remember this; true Constitutional Conservatism was never offered to the American people in the last election or in 2008. In fact, what the Founding Fathers laid down for us in our Constitution has NOT been represented by any politician in a very long time nor has it been displayed as a platform by the RINO republican party.  Allen West and a few others have come sort of close but no cigar. Many are in despair and have given up, quit or even turned to the dark side.

Not me, not here, not in any shape or form. We live in dark, perilous times, it will get much darker,  more sinister before the light of the truth burns away the evil of statist run government.

I am not the most intelligent, philosophical, nor do I or will I ever be known as a free thinker. What I am is extremely logical, a deep thinker with a common sense that is a rarity in our times. My Grandfather, Mother and a couple of uncles get most of the credit for that. My beliefs are based on the Constitution. true conservative principles, peace through superior firepower and first and most importantly, a love for Jesus and the standard that he set for me. I have never claimed to be anything but a Constitutional conservative who believes in what The Founding Fathers gave us with the Constitution.

You may have noticed (how could you not) that I have shared a fair number of posts from The Last Refuge or The Conservative Tree House, same site. This is a site that I implore each one of you to visit and spend a few hours there. The truth lives at TLR. It is a site of some of the most intelligent, wise folks I have ever happened across. the research by the contributors and readers is the best there is IMHO. Sundance, Sharon have busted the LSM repeatedly and will continue to do so. Their research and coverage of Benghazi and Travon Martin are just two of the best examples that come to my mind. There are many others. Spend some time there is all I can say.

Why am I bothering you all with all this prattle?

Here is why.

A recent comment by a Constitutional Conservative and Sundance wrote a most passionate and truth filled response, which is what you will read next. As I stated above, I am not the brightest bulb  in the box and I am sure as hell not an evil compact fluorescent light bulb. I see myself as one of the 100 watt incandescent bulbs that the government killed. Sundance is a 150 watt floodlight and I tip my hat to Sundance as her response explains why we do what we do and must keep doing.

Our Republic is very ill but it is not yet terminal. When good men and women do nothing, evil will prevail.

Not on my watch nor should it be on yours. Just saying...........

From The Last Refuge and it is an honor to offer this next feed to you. Thanks to Jordan2222 for posing his queries and to Sundance for one of the best responses I have ever read. PatriotUSA
*************************

A Message To Jordan2222 That Extends Beyond……

patriotJordan, in response to your comment here I’m going to attempt to share something that I really suck at explaining. It is hard to find the correct assembly of words and put them in the correct order to make sense of, well, “it”.  So I’m feebly going to drop back to my fallback position of an analogy in a fumbling attempt to explain, and perhaps in a larger sense put some perspective on this place we call the TreeHouse – The Last Refuge.
Think of current considerations like being inside a massive warehouse constructed as a pitch black maze. Within the confinement of the maze there is no light to afford any person perspective in relation to their environment.

Total darkness, total silence, and the incapacity for general use of any inherent sense: sight, sound, touch, smell, taste, are all useless. The only sense that works is the instinctive sense that none, or at least few, of us have spent any time perfecting.   It is exceptionally unnerving and disconcerting this place we find ourselves.

Yet, there is a coping mechanism available. You see, the maze was constructed by individual people who were given a specific set of instructions on a particular piece to build. Each person tasked with building their unit did not know what they were building, nor did they know how it would be assembled. In addition, they were not aware why they were building it;  It was a request without explanation, and once the task fulfilled they were thanked for their contribution and instructed to leave.

The community that has come together in this Last Refuge is, in a large part, an assembly of many persons who were involved in the individual unit construction; and who know, with specific expertise, how their small section is navigated. Yet they do not know the whole.

We find ourselves within this maze of darkness absent of external compass points. However, each Treeper has a keen understanding, when their built unit is reached, of the entrance and exit. So a large group is able to navigate using the individual skill set of the participants as each take turn with inherent knowledge of their geographical point of reference when reached.

Such was the exact same manner of affiliation for the original founding fathers of this great Republic who found themselves in need of the same skill set. They were diverse and yet were generally comfortable with each other and their faith. They individually pledged their lives, their fortune and their sacred honor in advancement of the journey.

From the beginning, the largest percentage of current long-term refuge members became affiliated after they walked into the “political” maze around 2006/07′/08′ or 09′. Before that there were few who wanted to know what was behind the massive doors of this monolithic construct, but it was not empty. There were some guides already in place to assist the first steps.

Such remains the same today. As each day, week, month or year passes, more and more people find the courage to open the door.   Each carrying their own individual reason to join the quest for understanding and basic truth. So each person inside has a responsibility to assist with the first uncomfortable steps. And so it goes…….
The community is much greater than the sum of its parts because each has a specific skill set, a specific knowledge, and a desire to learn, absorb and understand;  Even though each has an individual, or personal, reason for doing so. That reason matters not, nor is it ever asked. If not abridged by the individual in the form of a question it remains irrelevant.

Baby Newt

To your direct inquiry.  I don’t know what you, or anyone else, might do, or not do, with the information we discuss.  It is irrelevant to us, as it should be.  No-one is telling anyone they need to do anything, nor do they need to avoid doing anything.

To each his/her own.

But what we do have here is a great collection of light-bringers who know, as previously mentioned, the construct of individual segments.

Many people here stem from military backgrounds, many more from affiliations and expertise with quasi-political forces who worked deep within the framework of the maze of societal construction.    Their expertise is as diverse as the fabric which quilts our nation.

 I like to think of the Treehouse the same way I view Mensa. The Mensa organization is quite different from what people think. The most intelligent, as quantified with abstract reasoning tests, are not elite academics, professors, or captains of industry. Not even close.

The vast majority of  Mensas’ are tradespeople of comfortable invisibility, and profoundly proud insignificance. They are carpenters, nurses, plumbers, electricians, roofers, street sweeps, janitors and otherwise: the ‘invisibles’. But bring them together and watch out.  Because quantum physics meets practical application and universal factors are dissected with massive intellectual acumen.

One common thread characteristic, or sense of commonality, is each person seems to enjoy the comfort of physical accomplishment. Few, very few, are abstract white collarists.  Some are significant leaders but only because of what I call ‘their deep connection to dirt’, as in – physical earth covering dirt. Working with your hands provides a comfort unknown in the world of the abstract intellectual thought; and yet, that physical effort allows the mind to travel to incredible places of cognition.

It is a journey.

This is a journey. A journey without a specifically known destination, and an unnerving sense that despite our best efforts or intentions the destination might be a place we do not want to reach.  But we are committed to boldly finding out, because in its purest sense the only truth is available at the exit.

Such is life.

globalism, tyranny and freedom

If citizens of a nation state elect people to represent them, then it is reasonable to expect their representatives to share their cultural values, and to defend those values on their behalf. But if politicians who have been elected by citizens of a nation state find themselves entangled within a global political system, and they are seduced by it, then the people they were elected to represent will face the consequences.

If politicians engaged in business only with states founded on similar cultural values then no moral compromise would be necessary on their part, but if a politician decides to deal with a state built on values that are antithetical to our own, then they must turn a blind eye to what their new business partners do in their own country. This necessarily involves a moral compromise on the part of our elected politicians, and the only difference between dealing with one state and another is one of degree. Most citizens understand that this is the way of the world, and if their elected political representatives must do business with other political regimes whose values they disagree with, then they will tolerate this so long as a deal advantageous to their own state is struck between the two parties. But within the borders of their own nation state, their own cultural values must hold sway, and this has to include the ability to freely criticize any and all philosophies and pseudo-religions which are inimical to human liberty, and which openly endorse tyranny.

At a philosophical level, that is what makes freedom so important: the ability of each individual to choose between competing values and belief systems. And when citizens of a nation state choose, repeatedly and over time, to follow basic Judeo-Christian rules of morality, and those are the values which obtain throughout that society, then you have there a culture, a way of life, which their politicians are elected to uphold and protect.

The danger comes when elected politicians align themselves with other politicians and see themselves as members of a political elite, rather than representatives of the people of a nation state. Each of our politicians who find themselves unable to resist that temptation will find that the more people who are in such a group, the greater the chance that one or more of them will not only be a believer in political or pseudo-religious doctrines antithetical to the cultural values which obtain in their own nation state, but they will be guilty of implementing those beliefs and thereby acting in a way that would be considered both illegal and immoral by the citizens who voted that politician into office.

What to do in that situation? For any career politician who wants to become a member of the political elite, they face a straightforward choice. If you want to ride that gravy train, then you have to to pay for a ticket. If you are going to stand alongside evil men and deliver to them whatever they want from the world, then you must forsake your own conscience. Amorality is a prerequisite of a global political system.

That politician has now pledged his allegiance to a group other than the citizens of the nation state who elected him to represent them. It follows that he will try to conceal from those people both his decision, and any subsequent activities which he carries out in order to further the goals of that supranational group.
  
One of the things he will be committed to is to convince his own citizens to abandon their traditional values and accept the flawed philosophy of moral relativism. If he is successful then the politician's decisions and activities, and those of his fellow elitists, won't be understood in moral terms by the citizens of his own nation state, who have the power to take away that politician's ticket to the global gravy train and instead, hand him a P45.

Another necessary project will be the limitation of free speech within the nation state. Take away citizens' moral beliefs and a politician's activities cannot be understood in moral terms; take away the ability to speak freely, and that behavior cannot be criticized.

It is of course possible to study the contents of a book and to criticize the ideas found therein; any philosophy undergraduate understands that there is a difference between doing this and committing the ad hominem fallacy - making assertions that refer not to the contents of the book in question, but rather to people who have read the book and believe its contents are true.

In order to silence citizens who might discuss their elected politicians' allegiance to foreign powers and supranational groups, we have seen agents of the British state assert that anyone who criticizes the values and beliefs of some of the members of those groups and powers - values which are based on the pseudo-religion of Islam, and beliefs taken directly from the pages of the koran - constitute attacks on people who hold those beliefs and strive to uphold those values. As noted previously, one can read the koran and the hadith, study the doctrines and history of Islam using respected academic sources, then present an argument criticizing the doctrines of Islam, laying out one's premises to support one's conclusion and meticulously citing one's sources, employing language which refers only to to abstract pseudo-religious concepts. But to criminalize discussion of the doctrines and history of Islam, agents of the state can and will prosecute British citizens on the basis that they have spoken about Islam and therefore they have committed the ad hominem fallacy, which simply does not follow.

Obviously a distinction can be drawn between an assertion which refers to a long-dead man named Mohammed who is regarded by some as the prophet of Islam, and an utterance which has issued forth from the mouth of an individual that refers instead to some bloke called Mohammed who lives along the road, works for the local council and drives a Ford Mondeo. The government has deliberately blurred this perfectly clear linguistic distinction in order to restrict freedom of speech within the United Kingdom.

The British state has not only criminalized the discussion of Islam in an intellectually dishonest manner, it has encouraged acceptance of the incredible notion that discussing Islam is "racist", which is an impossibility since the ink and paper which constitute the Koran and the hadith have no genetic component whatsoever. That assertion is therefore the height of absurdity, and can be dismissed as such by all rational people.

It is important to remember that all politicians are hired by us on a temporary contract to carry out the administrative duties involved in running the country, and that is all. The idea that a politician has some kind of moral standing above and beyond the citizens who employ him is ridiculous. Take Barack Obama: the man spent years listening to Jeremiah Wright, so who's going to take anything he says about religion seriously now? As for David Cameron, he's nothing but a jumped-up fairground attendant.

Each one of us is an individual, a moral agent capable of exercising their own free will. Any attempt by the state to prevent us from discovering the truth about Islamic doctrines and history, and subsequently passing judgement on them, is a betrayal of who we are as human beings. Politicians may develop grandiose ideas of belonging to an elite group who will control great swathes of the earth, but so far as I am concerned, politicians are about as morally significant as a bug on my car windscreen.

I am a free moral agent. I am more than capable of deciding for myself whether the so-called prophet of Islam really flew about the sky on a horse, whether the moon deity at the heart of Islam is deserving of worship, or whether the Islamic doctrines that take precedence after applying the principle of abrogation to the koran as a whole are deserving of contempt. 

And there's not a man or woman alive on the earth today, politician or not, who can tell me otherwise.

Blogger Retaliates Against Paper That Published Gun Owner Addresses by Creating Interactive Map of Its Employees

Straight from The Blaze - By Liz Klimas

In retaliation against the New York newspaper — the Journal News — that published the addresses of those pistol permit holders in two of the state’s counties, a blogger has created a map pinpointing the addresses of the newspaper’s employees.

Mimicking the title of the Journal News’ original article, Robert Cox with “Talk of the Sound” headlined his post: Map: Where are the Journal News employees in your neighborhood?

Robert Cox With Talk of the Sound Creates Map of Journal News Employees in Retaliation to Gun Permit Map
Screenshot of Journal News employee address map. (Image: Robert Cox/ Talk of the Sound)
He wrote:
The map indicates the addresses of all Journal News Employees in the New York Tri-State area. Each dot represents an individual Journal News employee — a reporter, editor or staffer. The data does not include freelancers — reporters or photographers — which can be hired without being an employee. Being included in this map does not mean the individual at a specific location is a responsible reporter or editor, just that they are a reporter or editor.
[...]
To create the map, Talk of the Sound submitted Google searches for the names and addresses of all Journal News employees in the New York Tri-State area. By state law, the information is public record.
Cox went onto explain that putting together the map has been a crowd-sourced effort between other bloggers and readers. He wrote the map will be updated as more information continues to become available.

He also noted that since the publication has downsized in recent years, some of the names of employees might not be current. So far, dozens of names and addresses have been collected and published.

See the full-size map here.

Another blogger has been curating the names and addresses of News Journal employees as well (via Beta Beat). Christopher Fountain, a Greenwich, Conn., real estate agent on his blog For What It’s Worth, generally composes posts about real estate and home improvement, has been voicing his thoughts on the News Journal’s publishing of gun owner addresses and also recently linked Cox’s interactive map of employee addresses.

Feel the love from Islam-fooled again in Colorado

Feeling the love from Muslims and Islam in Colorado. I have little time today and need to keep my comments short.

Colorado: Muslims fool Jewish, Christian leaders in “love neigbbor” campaign

via Colorado Jewish, Muslim and Christian leaders launch love campaign – The Denver Post.

Colorado Muslim, Christian and Jewish leaders stood together in Denver’s main mosque Monday and launched a “Love Thy Neighbor” campaign — starting with ads on RTD buses.
They said the ad they unveiled — at a time on the calendar devoted to love and understanding — is meant to respond to recent national tragedies and to replace anti-Muslim ads placed on buses last month.
“Our country is in the midst of a lot of divisions,” Temple Emanuel Senior Rabbi Joe Black said. “Hatred is only going to further violence and the breakdown of society.”
“Love Thy Neighbor” ads, purchased for $5,000, are expected to appear on 10 buses by the end of this week and stay on each bus for a month.
The “Love Thy Neighbor” message conveys “a shared concept in the three religions,” Colorado Muslim Society Imam Karim Abuzaid said. “In Islam, we are commanded to love our neighbor, or at least act in love.”

The Muslim part of the ad, not shown by the Denver Post – likely for the obvious reason that the chosen verse has nothing to do with the concept of loving thy neighbor. In fact, it doesn’t even mention neighbor:

Muslims in Colorado love their neighbors so much that they refuse to share worship space with them in the Denver airport as we reported here, Muslim prayer room at Denver Airport separate from Christians and Jews. Muslim love.
More to the point, the Koran explicitly states Muslims should not take Christians and Jews for friends:

O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends… ~ Koran 5:052

And for inquiring minds, the http://www.unitingcolorado.com website consists of one page. Anyone know who they are? Here’s the same ad on their site.

Notice it doesn’t list any of the partners they are supposed to be loving. Here’s the image the Denver Post ran:

Morning Star Farms-A common sense approach on how to run a company


Free thinkers and brain washed magical thinkers will truly hate this idea and that it has worked so well for this company.



The Morning Star Company, which handles 40 percent of California's processed tomato crop, is the largest tomato processing company in the world. That's impressive, but the most unique thing about Morning Star is that it has no managers. Instead, Morning Star embraces an approach they call "self-management." As Paul Green, Jr. of Morning Star's Self-Management Institute puts it: "Self-management is, at a very very high level, exactly the way you live when you go home from work. We just ask you to keep that hat on when you come to work at Morning Star."

In our everyday lives, we don't have bosses telling us which careers or hobbies to pursue. If we want to purchase a car or a home, we don't have to get permission. Sure, we consult with friends and family before making important decisions, but as long as we're prepared to take responsibility for our choices, we're free to do what we want.

The same spirit reigns at Morning Star. Employees decide how their skill sets can best help Morning Star succeed and then develop their own lists of roles and responsibilities in collaboration with their colleagues. If Morning Star employees want to purchase new equipment, they don't ask managers for permission. Rather, they discuss potential purchases with colleagues who will be affected by the purchase and, if others with expertise support the decision, they simply buy what they need. There is no R&D department at Morning Star. There are, however, strong incentives for every employee to innovate. Workers who successfully innovate don't receive new titles. They earn the respect of their colleagues in addition to financial compensation.

Running a firm without managers seems like a crazy idea to many, but is it? If the most prosperous societies are organized around institutions that promote freedom and responsibility, why shouldn't a similar approach work within a firm? If market-based societies are best able to take advantage of local and dispersed knowledge, then doesn't it make sense to give staffers with the most local knowledge the freedom to make decisions?

More than 50 years ago, Leonard E. Read wrote "I, Pencil," an essay that asks how we can expect central planning to succeed when nobody in the world possess all the knowledge needed to produce even a simple pencil. For more than 40 years, Morning Star has been demonstrating that you don't need managers to run a successful company.

(Full disclosure: Morning Star founder Chris Rufer is a supporter of Reason Foundation, the nonprofit that publishes Reason TV.)

Modern Liberalism and the mental disorder of magical thinking

A bit of a rewind is in order here in response to the release of the names of legal gun owners by the progressive and now nefarious Journal News.

I stayed out of The Newtown murders as it had been fishtailed, spun and dried so many times, I would have been repeating much of others had already noticed and stated much better than I could have. The 'official narrative' has been been polluted and made to order for maximum brainwashing.

I did have other events happening as well, was helping out others as I often do so I just stayed out of the fray and watched from the sidelines.

The absolute stupidity of such a breach of CONFIDENTIAL yet public information is beyond the reach of so many people it can be a  mysterious thing to ponder.

Yet this is nothing more ( I am NOT downplaying this at all) than the corrupt thinking of modern liberalism or Magical Thinking. Barack Obama is the perfect example of this mental disorder. Is it any wonder why he is associated with DOPEY CHANGEY, unicorns and rainbows? Believing that the world is as people 'hope' or think it should be is like Lemmings jumping off a cliff.. ANYONE who opposes this thinking is racist, anti-Semitic, bigoted, unenlightened, uneducated, barbaric (see Islam and sharia law for what is truly barbaric), we are ridiculed, targeted and scorned by the free thinkers who are truly slaves to modern liberalism.

One may think this is all old news but this proves what modern 'progressives' want to force upon the rest of us.

"Modern liberalism uses a similar model. Today’s leftist leaders are often presented to the public as boasting the most outlandish, godlike talents, reminiscent of the Deeds of the Divine Augustus 5 (Emperor Caesar Augustus’ autobiography). Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has often been described as the world’s most brilliant woman. Likewise, Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama are presented as the greatest and wisest minds of their age. This puffery is necessary to create a human interface between the people and the deified state, as seen in all Marxist cults of propaganda, erected for every communist leader. " 6

"Principled conservatives, libertarians and liberals should join and reject the infantile Magical Thinking world-view and resultant childish policies. If not, our entire society will be permanently driven off the cliff by repeated childlike policies and political decisions. Then, every good that all the leftists in America have long wanted to pursue will be just a faded memory of lost opportunities."

The so called fiscal cliff is one that we have already gone over long ago and it is a mere shadow of what lies ahead after the dictator and thief  has his coronation next year. Obama is merely the puppet on strings that are controlled by Jarrett, Soros, Ayers, Wright and such vile haters of true freedom and liberty.

I mentioned a rewind and here it is from Canada Free Press.

Modern Leftism and Magical Thinking
By Kelly OConnell

In midst of one of the most amazing displays of irrationality in modern Western history, Americans are left to ponder: What the devil has happened to the USA? Arguably, roots of America’s current confusion are traceable to an infection of leftist Magical Thinking.

This is essentially the thought pattern of how children perceive the world, a mindset based upon substituting wishful thinking for reality. One of the chief characteristics of Magical Thinking is a denial of the principles of science. It is a dangerous belief system because it causes folks to assume that as long as their motives are right, all their plans and undertakings will work out.

The unrealistic thought pattern of Magical Thinking now informs American public policy and statecraft at every level—on economics, foreign relations, rule of law, environmentalism, etc. It is a world-view based upon the notion the “right” people will provide successful leadership for America, simply because they are “good,” and not the old “bad” leaders. Most intriguingly, this outlook is characteristic of not just children, but also sufferers of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, which Dr. Ali Sina believes is a diagnosis fitting Barack Obama. 1

I What Is Magical Thinking?

Magical Thinking deludes folks into believing the world is exactly as they hope it to be. Dictionary.com defines magical thinking as…“a conviction that thinking is equivalent to doing, occurring in dreams, the thought patterns of children, and some types of mental disorders, esp. obsessive-compulsive disorder.” Leonard Zusne and Warren H. Jones, authors of “Anomalistic Psychology: A Study of Magical Thinking” write Magical Thinking is “a fundamental dimension of a child’s thinking.” 2

Perception of linear time is avoided while cause and affect and natural laws are dismissed. In this mental disorder, focus is placed upon how things “should” be, while all personal responsibility is cast aside. The self and one’s comrades are identified as above criticism. Opponents are made devils, their ideas treated as laughable, and are personally attacked as idiotic, mentally unwell people beneath contempt, simply for disagreeing with magical thinkers.

Sir James Frazer, unparalleled scholar of primitive religions, developed many standard elements defining Magical Thinking in his Sympathetic Magic theory. This explains much “magic” practice in primitive societies, as seen in Voodoo believers. Frazer describes this in his masterpiece, the 12-volume Golden Bough. 3:

Sympathetic Magic: The Principles of Magic

IF we analyze the principles of thought on which magic is based, they will probably be found to resolve themselves into two: first, that like produces like, or that an effect resembles its cause; and, second, that things which have once been in contact with each other continue to act on each other at a distance after the physical contact has been severed. The former principle may be called the Law of Similarity, the latter the Law of Contact or Contagion. From the first of these principles, namely the Law of Similarity, the magician infers that he can produce any effect he desires merely by imitating it: from the second he infers that whatever he does to a material object will affect equally the person with whom the object was once in contact, whether it formed part of his body or not. Charms based on the Law of Similarity may be called Homeopathic or Imitative Magic. Charms based on the Law of Contact or Contagion may be called Contagious Magic. 4

II Primitive Examples of Magical Thinking: Voodoo

In primitive societies, belief is often founded upon Magical Thinking. According to Webster’s, Voodoo is “a religion that is derived from African polytheism and ancestor worship and is practiced chiefly in Haiti.” An example of Frazer’s “sympathetic magic” is found in the “voodoo doll.” A “houngan” voodoo magician prepares a human image. He will do various things to the likeness, hoping to cause similar results to the targeted person, such as “causing pain” to the doll by sticking pins into it.

III Modern Liberal Examples of Magical Thinking

A. Government; Human Nature Belief: Leftist leaders are presented as enlightened, selfless, saintly and pure persons, not unlike a child’s idea of the perfect parent. The state itself is deified, taking the place of religion. All programs are therefore described as well-conceived and meant only for good.

Classical pagan governments had no Bill of Rights or separation between religion and state to protect citizens. In the Roman Empire, the emperor was deified; all religions were a subset of the state, who called on the priests for answers, but then chose whether to accept their findings. Therefore, to attack the gods was to wage war against the state.

Modern liberalism uses a similar model. Today’s leftist leaders are often presented to the public as boasting the most outlandish, godlike talents, reminiscent of the Deeds of the Divine Augustus 5 (Emperor Caesar Augustus’ autobiography). Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has often been described as the world’s most brilliant woman. Likewise, Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama are presented as the greatest and wisest minds of their age. This puffery is necessary to create a human interface between the people and the deified state, as seen in all Marxist cults of propaganda, erected for every communist leader. 6

All communist revolutions have presented the superhuman “Great Man” model of a leader who drives the revolution to inevitable victory. These set-props are an irreplaceable backdrop for neo-pagan statecraft. Such nonsensical political theater richly reveals Magical Thinking towards deified government. For example, it clearly helps the argument if the state proposes transparently nonsensical policies, if the “World’s Smartest Man” is the human face touting these ridiculous programs. Wishful thinkers process life through childish “rose colored goggles.”

Socialist governments see humanity through childish eyes of wishful thinking, as pall past Marxist programs were either impossible to achieve, or destined to produce opposite results of their claimed goals. For example, Chairman Mao launched his Great Leap Forward, heralded to quickly reform the country’s farm systems. Instead, it resulted in the biggest human-caused famine in history when perhaps 40 million Chinese peasants starved to death. But Magical Thinking based on na√Øve faith in Marxist doctrines caused incredible numbers of innocent victims to die in communist countries.

According to Marx, there is no such thing as a soul or human nature. Therefore, government can reprogram people like robots to carry out tasks. With no human nature it follows there is no soul, and so when godlike leftist regimes decide people need to be disposed of, it is not immoral.

B. Economics, Socialism, Capitalism, Taxes & Healthcare

Belief: Economics is easy if people would not be so greedy, and just share what they have with others.

If any undertaking reveals the modern penchant for Magical Thinking, it is the liberal approach to economics. In the first place, consider recent fixations with Keynesian economics, touting deficit spending to create growth. Obama’s “Stimulus” package was meant to cause growth, simply by being named and implemented, highlighting Frazer’s Law of Similarity.

Perpetually increasing tax rates lowers standards of living, creates more government waste, bloated bureaucracies, loss of rights, and activist governments. But since everyone deserves health care as human rights, if government decides to provide this, we can afford it, because it is the moral choice, and therefore cannot backfire.

Arguments for socialism defy common sense, science, and history. Will all people continue to work diligently when property rewards are removed by the state? Communism posits human problems vanish when private property is abolished. But history proves these ideas never work. Further, the worst hells on earth have resulted from application of this exact theory.

C. International Relations & Pacifism

Belief: American is arrogant and bullies other countries, resulting in bad karma. Arrogant states will suffer for bad actions and attitudes.

Liberal international political theories are based upon wishful thinking of “how things should be.” The notion for conducting international politics resembles the old pagan Hindu belief in karma; which claims like actions result in like results. So, if you commit evil on someone else, evil will come back on you. Karma illustrates wishful thinking within a pagan religious setting, now indistinguishable from Obama’s ethics in conducting American foreign politics.

For example, leftists believe the American military needs reducing as armies wage war; and war kills people; and it is always wrong to kill others; since it is murder. By reducing your army, other countries will note and respect you, and then reduce their own armies. But if we stop pouring money into arms, and instead invest in the world’s poor, we will gain blessing for doing the right thing.

D. Anti-Science, Global Warming & Green Energy

Belief: If you hurt the earth, the cosmos will hit you back even harder. Eventually it will kill all the capitalist evil-mongers for their selfish, destructive greed.

The gassy Global Warming myth is pagan religious drama driven by Magical Thinking. In ancient Rome, when natural disaster occurred it was assumed the gods were offended. In the modern liberal world, man has sinned against the god of earth, ie “Gaia.” Therefore, we must sacrifice so god will not be vexed at mankind’s impiety. It is unmistakable that much of rhetoric delivered by Global Warming advocates comes not just in pseudo-scientific terms, but also couched in simplistic, moralizing religious terminology.

A classical analogy: During the First Punic War, Roman consul Publius Clodius Pulcher mistreated the sacred chickens aboard his ship. The fowl had no appetite when offered feed before an important battle. (Roman augury foretold the future based upon behavior of birds. Whether the sacred hens would feed, and how, was a grave matter to prospects for coming battles. Holy fowl refusing feed prophesied defeat.) Instead, Pulcher, observing the birds not heartily eating, lost his temper and tossed them overboard, shouting, “If they won’t eat, then let them drink!” Many lives were lost in the ensuing battle, directly blamed upon Claudius’ impiety.7 Of course such behavior now seems incredible. But is it any more laughable than the unhinged adherents of Global Warming and their carbon fixation?

A typical conceit of Magical Thinkers is evil, capitalist fuel companies conspire to keep the world in sooty fog instead of allowing alternative energy. But companies seek fossil fuel because the payoffs are so much higher than almost any other fuel source. Of course, we should create as much natural energy as possible. But each method of energy creation has burdens of production. There will always be oil leaks, coal mine collapses, broken solar collectors, and every other technology failure known to man. And wishful thinking will not change this.

A chief characteristic of Magical Thinking is rejection of the principles of science, eschewing the notion that all physical bodies and natural phenomenon are under the law of cause and effect; and that all such elements are discoverable via observation and testing. In Global Warming, careful science was abandoned by egotistical “scientists,” pawning a grand motif where sinful capitalistic man attacked the earth for greed, then was menaced by mother earth’s death. This story is no more sophisticated, and no less judgmental than the classical myth of Sisyphus. He likewise was sentenced for greedy highway-robbing, condemned to eternally roll a stone up a hill he could never surmount. 8

As richly illustrated by the last half-year debacle over methods of the Global Warming “researchers,” this “science” is a fact-free myth meant to illustrate the deeply felt beliefs of modern earth-worshiping, illogical neo-pagans. The myth is chiefly based upon conviction mankind has overstepped his bounds, is ruining the earth in the name of capitalist greed, and now must be reigned in and punished. In this sense it’s both a pagan and anti-materialism Marxist tale, animated by the illogical principles of Magical Thinking. “Science” is just a prop to move the story towards its socialist, misanthropic conclusion.

E. Demonizing “Enemies”

Belief: Enemies of liberalism are obviously illiterate, crazy or evil, and so must be put down as wicked rebels against reality.

Liberals attacking their “enemies” is a transparent tribal element of primitive Magical Thinking mindset. According to childish leftists, simply opposing their political, cultural or religious positions creates permanent enmity. (Emotivism is the philosophical theory that one’s emotions reveal objective truth.9) In other words, the people you hate are independently wicked—which you know, since you hate them. It is a pagan rite to imprecate, excoriate and execrate one’s enemies. Examples of the anathematized abound with conservative public figures such as Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, philosopher Anthony Flew, etc. This is the result of applying Magical Thinking by way of the secular monotheistic creed of Political Correctness, that brooks no opposition without an attendant presumption of insanity, illiteracy or evil attached. This is a refusal of the Western tradition that while rejecting your opponents ideas, you still treat them with respect, as encouraged by classical liberalism.

Conclusion: Summary of Liberal Magical Thinking

Application of Magical Thinking in society is a grave problem as it replaces genuine thought, analysis and science. It assures wise decisions won’t be made, so results are never optimal.

The following ten aspects are essential elements of neo-modern liberal Magical Thinking, being it is:

Childish;
Wishfully-thinking;
Anti-scientific;
Sentimental;
Neo-Pagan;
Narcissistic;
Anti-Christian & uses karmic ethics;
Antinomian (lawless);
Emotivist (feeling oriented);
Nihilistic (extreme doubt of a rational world).

Principled conservatives, libertarians and liberals should join and reject the infantile Magical Thinking world-view and resultant childish policies. If not, our entire society will be permanently driven off the cliff by repeated childlike policies and political decisions. Then, every good that all the leftists in America have long wanted to pursue will be just a faded memory of lost opportunities.
