  • The Chickens of Communism Have Come Home to Roost(She knows the drill)

    The chickens of intolerance and communist social justice have come home to roost on the American campus. Decades of Marxist indoctrination by the vaunted communist academia are finally paying off—our cultural heritage is replaced by cultural Marxism and primitive cultures that are deemed superior to ours and worshipped. Academia has been blotting out the past and revising history for a while but with increased vengeance since Jimmy Carter founded the U.S. Department of Education on October 17, 1979. Our children’s education has depreciated considerably as evidenced by test scores and the quality of mis-educated youth in our country who can...
  • Sanders tries, fails, to explain 'democratic socialism'

    americanthinker.com ^ | 11/20/2015 | Rick Moran
    For months, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has been promising a speech that would explain and make palatable what he calls "democratic socialism." The problem for Sanders is that during his entire political career, he has run for office as a "socialist" - never mind the addition of "democratic." Not that it makes a difference. A new poll out today shows Hillary Clinton ahead of Sanders by 25 points nationally. Sanders could call himself a reformed Druid and he'd still be buried. But Sanders is determined to make socialism mainstream. To that end, he traveled to Georgetown University to give a...

    **SNIP** As recently as 2008, the Democratic Party presented 26 debates, which we mainly remember as the venues that presented Barack Obama with the opportunity to promise that he, unlike Hillary Clinton, would never support anything as preposterous as "the individual mandate," a k a fining people who don't have health insurance. Now the Democratic National Committee is led by Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was the chair of Hillary's 2008 campaign. Any doubts about which candidate she wants to win this time? She declared that any candidates that participated in debates outside of the tightly controlled DNC framework would be...

    Activists that have taken over U.S. college campuses this week protesting racial injustice took to Twitter last night to complain that news coverage of the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris had stolen their spotlight. Black Lives Matter and Mizzou protesters on Twitter said their struggles with racial oppression were being “erased” by the overwhelming news coverage of the murder of scores of people at the hands of Islamic State extremists. “Racist white people kill me, you want everyone to have sympathy for YOUR tragedy, but you have none for ours,” one user tweeted, adding “#Mizzou.” “Disgusted @ white conservative Americans...

    As conservatives scratch their collective heads on how to win over young people, a millennial whose online audience is center-left explains why Bernie Sanders is appealing to youth. Devin Foley, the thoughtful President of Intellectual Takeout and Better Ed, explains Sanders is growing in popularity among young people because he gives voice to those who cant find jobs, who see unfair disparities and who suffer from massive debt. Besides that, Foley says conservatives refuse to reach out to youth in ways that resonate or make sense of the fallen world to them, a world that once promised going to college...

    Four days after Pope Francis proclaimed Junipero Serra a saint, vandals defaced the grounds of Mission San Carlos in Carmel where the newly canonized Franciscan friar, and founding father of modern California, is buried. At some point overnight Saturday, one or more vandals scaled the wall surrounding the cemetery next to the mission and defaced the headstones and statues of Serra and other European settlers buried on the grounds, said Sgt. Luke Powell with the Carmel-by-the-Sea Police Department. Vandals also sloshed paint on the churchs outside doors. Officials with the mission posted eight photos of the vandalism on Facebook early...

    The House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) was created in 1938 to investigate alleged disloyalty and subversive activities on the part of private citizens, public employees, and those organizations suspected of having Communist ties. And The work of the committee continued to decline in importance throughout the late 1950s and early 1960s until the committee itself was renamed the House Internal Security Committee in 1969, prefiguring its eventual abolition in 1975. We all know of what many believed as overreach and showmanship by Joe McCarthy during the life of this committee. McCarthyism is the term born from that era, and a...

    Thom Hartmann, a paid agent of the Russian governments main propaganda channel, Russia Today (RT) television, is strongly supporting career politician and socialist Bernie Sanders for U.S. president. Bernie Sanders could be the next FDR, he says. But it might be more accurate to say that Sanders could be another Alger Hiss, the Russian agent who served FDR as his top aide and helped create the United Nations. Before examining the curious history of Bolshevik Bernie, as analyst Trevor Loudon calls him, Hartmanns service to the Kremlin is worth a look. Hartmann praises Sanders for trying to get money out...

    Labor Secretary Thomas Perez is moving ahead with issuing a final regulatory proposal for financial advisers despite growing concerns from moderate Democrats and Republicans that it would hurt low-income Americans. Perez responded to Rep. Ann Wagner (R-Mo.) in a letter earlier this week after she and other lawmakers called on Department of Labor (DOL) officials and the administration to re-propose the controversial so-called "fiduciary standards," which would increase disclosure requirements for financial advisers. The business community is vehemently lobbying against the proposal, which failed in 2010, arguing it would raise consumer costs for Americans who need financial advice the most....

    So how much do Democrats value basic transparency, accountability, and honesty in their presidential candidates? Not bloody much, if you go by the handy polls over at RealClearPolitics. The six national polls taken this January and February, before the email scandal first broke, averaged out to a whopping 43 percentage-point lead for Hillary Clinton. How about the next six, in March and April? Plus 50. The 11 polls in May and June, when Berniementum first started sweeping the country, came in at +48, and the most recent five in July stand at +41.

    Noting that hes perhaps the most progressive member of the United States Senate, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) described today how, as president, he would do socialism in America. When we talk about Democratic socialism, I think it is important to realize that there are countries around the world, like Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, who have had social democratic governments on and off for many, many years. And we can learn a whole lot from some of those countries, the 2016 Democratic presidential contender said on CBS this morning. For example, the United States is the only major country on earth...

    The act of waving lists to decry an injustice is as old as the Republic. But when Senator Joseph McCarthy waved his list, almost exactly 65 years ago, it became much more than the usual political gesture. On February 9, 1950, during a speech he gave in West Virginia, McCarthy waved a list of 205 names of men he alleged were known Communists known as such by Secretary of State Dean Acheson. With this gesture, he worsened an already panicky situation, gave the angry public a ready-made explanation for why the country was losing the Cold War, helped foster...

The vehicle for the nations destruction is the greatest hoax of the modern era, the claim that global warming must be avoided by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

    For a number of years into the Cold War, American presidents were occasionally troubled by the paradox that a democratic United States was supporting right-wing anti-Communist dictatorships abroad.

    If there is a single overriding message in Tolkiens novels, it is how ordinary people can find the strength and courage to face and fight evil, how some of them lose heart and try to run away, and how others are seduced and suborned, to become collaborators with the enemy. Tolkien saw it happen more than once. It is the greatest psychological theme of the 20th century, just as it is in the 21st. Those Americans who have not closed their eyes to evil can easily spot the same characters in our political life: the brave, the cowardly, and the...

Ironically, the number of summonses issued during the week ending Sunday dropped more than 90% compared to last year in a work slowdown as part of the rank-and-files continued protest against de Blasio over perceived anti-cop sentiments.

A sign on the door asked customers' forgiveness "for not attending you due...

Add to that group socialist senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont, who is considering running for president (as a Democrat) and has already announced a 12-point plan at the Huffington Post. He writes: As Vermont's senator, here are 12 initiatives that I will be fighting for which can restore America's middle class.

    The Occupy movement and other leftist groups are attempting to use the anti-cop furor for a die-in and shutdown protest targeting Fox News and the New York Post. The demonstration is scheduled for Jan. 2 at New Corporations Midtown Manhattan headquarters, with invitations posted at Occupy-affiliated Facebook pages. The invitation reads: As many already know The NY POST is a newspaper that is owned and controlled by the Right Winger Rupert Murdoch, who in essence is a corporate racist that continually supports and disseminates racist, classist, sexist and all forms of pro 1% misinformation through his NY POST newspaper as...

    Controversial street artist Sabo, for the first time ever, publicly revealed his face on television on the One American News Networks Rick Amato Show last night. Sabo, is his work art, or is it another form of vandalism? You be the judge. Known for his unique and in-your-face pieces, Sabo attempts to point out the hypocrisy of liberal ideology and liberals on the left in general, says Rick Amato. And until yesterday, Sabo had kept his face, at least on television, anonymous. But why did he choose to reveal himself now?

    Sony Cancels Theatrical Release for The Interview on Christmas With theater chains defecting en masse, Sony Pictures Entertainment has pulled the planned Christmas Day release of The Interview. In announcing the decision to cancel the holiday debut, Sony hit back at the hackers who threatened movie theaters and moviegoers and who have terrorized the studio and its employees for weeks.

    LIMA, Peru Wilfredo Saavedra, a former Marxist rebel, led a convoy of some 300 activists from Perus northern sierra, wearing an anti-mining T-shirt and Cuban baseball cap. Jim Chomicz, 70, from Birmingham, Alabama, flew here with a church group to learn more about melting glaciers. But for many of their Latin American counterparts, it is all about toppling capitalism, which they blame for the environmental degradation. Capitalism is the creator of all of these changes to the climate, said Mr. Saavedra. At a march this week, Ibis Fernndez, a Peruvian union leader and organizer of the Peoples Climate Summit,...

    North Korea is irate at its neighbor to the south for its decision to allow Christians to erect a 30-foot Christmas tree roughly two miles form the border, saying it will escalate confrontation and cause a war. The KCNA news agency, North Koreas state-run media apparatus, described the Christmas tree as an intolerable insult and an act of despicable psychological warfare by South Korea that will fan up the confrontation with the fellow countrymen in the north and bring a war disaster.

    There's no sugarcoating it. The November 2014 election results marked a serious setback for Democrats, the anti-ultra right alliance and the broad people's coalition led by labor. The fight for jobs at living wages, workers and immigrant rights, racial and gender equality, for climate justice and peace proceeds under more unfavorable conditions. The election resulted in a wave of victories for the Republicans and ultra right that may have surpassed 2010. However, while the GOP claims otherwise, it was not a mandate for right-wing policies. Grassroots efforts by labor and its allies mobilized millions of voters. Tens of thousands of...
