Democrat Thought Police Confirm: Using ‘LGBTQ+’ for Totalitarian Revolution

Question 1: What is the most egregious policy proposed by the Obama regime and their fellow Democrats?

Question 2: What is the worst of their many apparent scandals?

Answer to both: This, in my humble opinion:

Obama: Ban Parents from Having Children Counseled Not to be ‘LGBTQ+’

gaynewsweekThis is what totalitarian revolution looks like. The sexual revolution and specifically the militant homosexual political movement are long known tools of revolution by the Marxian method. Along with other malevolent stratagems of collectivists, whether communist, fascist, “progressive,” or under some other name, it is intended for breaking down Western Civilization while building the structural Marxism, all for “the fundamental transformation” to be done.

As Norman Dodd related decades ago, egalitarianism is just a deceitful ideological devise, albeit a massive one. The true goal is the evil of universal enslavement. The times change, but the motivations for the Tower of Babel and the serpent in the Garden of Eden stay the same. This grand, global opera must not be thought of as merely the power plays of men.

James Simpson, Cliff Kincaid, and Jerry Kenney discussed Marxian globalists’ use of sympathies for homosexuals last evening on Roku.tv. Their enlightening and succinct conversation should be available here this Saturday.

Meanwhile, back at the Gulag, Mr. Kincaid recently addressed the Homosexual device in his The Real Power of the One Percent.”

The use of evil by principalities, powers, and even human beings reaches where it will, including The Vatican, as we see also addressed by Kincaid in Catholic Church Captured by ‘Progressive Forces.’

Whaddyaknow, does that not dovetail with this?

John Kerry’s ‘Nonbinding’ Agreeability with Iran Demonstrates our Conspiracy-Incompetence Maxim

Never ascribe to only conspiracy, that which may also be incompetence,
and vice versa.

Or, said another way…

Never presume that conspiracy and incompetence are mutually exclusive,

BECAUSE, CRUSADES: Kerry, State Department Agree That any Iran Deal Would Be “Non-Binding”

By The Tower

Over the past two days, both U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki have admitted that the current nuclear deal being negotiated with Iran is “non-binding.”

Speaking at a hearing of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today, Kerry said that the deal is not “legally binding.”

“We’ve been clear from the beginning we’re not negotiating a legally binding plan. We’re negotiating a plan that will have a capacity for enforcement,” he told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

“We don’t even have diplomatic relations with Iran right now.”

Kerry made his remarks in the context of addressing what he called the “misconceptions” contained in the open letter released earlier this week that was signed by 47 Senators.

In an exchange with reporters at yesterday’s daily State Department press conference, Psaki was asked how the deal could be non-binding if the United States does not trust Iran. The video is embedded below the transcript.

QUESTION: The problem is is that you’ve stressed over and over again this is not about trusting, right? This is about verifying. But then you’re saying that these are political commitments but not necessarily binding. It would seem to me that if this wasn’t about trust, you would want them to be binding, not political commitments, which are your word. That’s what a political —

MS. PSAKI: Well, Brad, we’re talking about specifically how pieces —

QUESTION: Political commitment just means “I will do this.”

MS. PSAKI: It is not that. We’re talking about how specifically pieces would be agreed to between the parties. In terms of the implementation of it, I’m sure we will talk about that at the time we would have an agreement.

QUESTION: Since I don’t understand then what a political – as I understand a political commitment, it means a person or a political entity saying, “I will do this; I commit to doing this.” How is that not anything other than giving your word?

MS. PSAKI: Well, again, Brad, if we get to the point where we have a framework, where we have an agreement, I’m sure we will have a discussion about how things will be implemented.

QUESTION: I’m just asking for the concept of political commitment. What does that mean, beyond giving your word?

MS. PSAKI: I just gave you additional examples of how that has been implemented and how it has worked in the past.

QUESTION: The Iranians have talked about this, whatever it is, that if anything happens, that it being – the idea that the UN Security Council would at least endorse it if not enshrine it in some kind of a resolution. Is that something that you think would be useful?

MS. PSAKI: I’m just not going to get ahead of how this would be implemented at this point in time.

QUESTION: So —

MS. PSAKI: Obviously, there’s a lot of work that needs to be done between now and then.


Last week, Armin Rosen of Business Insider reported that the non-binding nature of the deal was “one of the more curious yet least commented-upon aspects” of the nuclear negotiations with Iran.

In October, the New York Times reported that the Obama administration was pursuing a nuclear deal with Iran that would avoid the Senate altogether. That means that the deal would technically be an “executive agreement” in which the president reaches an understanding with a foreign government that doesn’t require any changes in US law — rather than a treaty, which requires a 2/3 majority in the Senate and could supersede certain laws.

The trouble is that Congress has passed numerous sanctions bills relating to Iran. And while Obama has the right to grant sanctions waivers under certain circumstances, he doesn’t have the power to just take them off the books by decree.

“An executive agreement never overrides inconsistent legislation and is incapable of overriding any of the sanctions legislation,” says David Rivkin, a constitutional litigator with Baker Hostetler, LLP who served in the White House Counsel’s Office in the Reagan and George H. W. Bush Administrations. “A treaty that has been submitted for Senate’s advise and consent and if it’s self-executing could do that.”

There is strong bipartisan support for Congressional oversight of any nuclear deal reached with Iran, both within Congress and among voters. The non-binding aspect to the deal is a way to bypass that oversight.

‘The Giver’ Shows Where ‘Net Neutrality’ Leads; Keeps on Giving if You Want it Too (video)

By: Arlen Williams
Gulag Bound

It is almost March and catching wind of the new ruling called “Net Neutrality,” I am beginning to be frightened.

Some may be reminded of the opening line of a story; just borrowed it. It’s a story about what happens toward the end of the road down which today’s ruling has just pushed us. Call it… Book Burning 2.0, with a technocracy update, in a muted, camel’s-head-in-the-tent fashion, pardon the mixed metaphor.

But that story’s dystopia may not even be as hideous as reality can become.

GiverCharacterMap

A number of fantasies and sci-fi stories about children and adolescents have become more and more popular in recent years, following the jet stream created by Harry Potter and The Hunger Games.

One of the best became adapted from its original novel to a movie last year; and as it turns out, The Giver is to the FCC and budding United Nations regulatory control of communications technology, what The Hunger Games is to Agenda 21, “sustainable development,” the EPA, and again, the UN. Have you seen the motion picture, yet? On disc or through an online service?

I just came across this brief set of Raymond Arroyo interviews, of its producer-star, Jeff Bridges, of producer Michael Flaherty, and of its author, Lois Lowry, from last August.

Gave it a micro-review without much spoiling of plot and showed a trailer last November: The Giver, the Movie, Out on Disc, Suggested.”

Enjoy! What children and young adults do you know who might?

Or, how about any friends or family childish enough to support the neutering of the power of free communications called Net Neutrality?

Commiserations with Gratitude to France, from Gulag Bound

To our dear neighbors in France,

We offer our sympathies and we humbly accept yours, as you share our embarrassment over John Kerry and of course, Barack Hussein Obama and the rest of the Democratic Party.

You don’t mind if we make it sort of small, do you?

(A written something like explanation of this, our Secretary of State’s darling moment for France, is provided elsewhere, including at Daily Signal.) 

If John wanted to apologize for not participating in the Paris solidarity march (did anyone really invite him?) perhaps he could have just shown this, from his iPod.


 
Or was Willie available? (He may still owe the federal government, as far as we know.) Harmonica is a nice touch, don’t you think?

#JeSuisWillie


 
Or how about something a little more up-tempo. These guys still around? Named after a French town, right?


 
Maybe we shouldn’t scoff. Maybe Mr. Kerry really has something here. Diplomacy by popular song? Remember, Coca-Cola kind of had the idea with “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing.”

Any requests?

Maybe something with cowbell?

Whittle & Klavan Video: Showing-up Neo-Marxist Race-baiting Well

By: Arlen Williams
Gulag Bound

Washington-Booker-race-biz

“Critical Theory” — excellent! someone said it — at 6:42, to be exact. Well done, Mr. Whittle and Mr. Klavan too. 

 
Two more observations:

There really is still an unsettling residue of racism in America, among numerous whites and numerous blacks, and many of whatever shade one decides to notice — also among many “progressive” collectivists, in the Planned Plantation Parenthood (and Nazi) traditions. In the occult schemes of neo-Marxists it is much more effective to wrap their poison pearls of deceit around even a tiny grain of truth.

The extreme and violent behavior of the newly rehashed protesting provides a sort of Overton Window extension of the Marxist dialectic, in the Marxstream media controlled hive mind of way too many Americans. It is an imposed image that allows the likes of Mr. Dark Ops in the White House, Barack Obama (no racial pun intended) and his likes to pose as peacemakers, proposing whatever solutions by means of Marxian synthesis.

Should we elaborate on that? Feel free to tell us in comments, if so.

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day, Longfellow’s Reflection

By: Arlen Williams
Gulag Bound

Longfellow-Henry-W

For hate is strong,
And mocks the song…
 

 

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,

and wild and sweet
The words repeat

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom

Had rolled along
The unbroken song

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Till ringing, singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day,

A voice, a chime,
A chant sublime

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Then from each black, accursed mouth
The cannon thundered in the South,

And with the sound
The carols drowned

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

It was as if an earthquake rent
The hearth-stones of a continent,

And made forlorn
The households born

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And in despair I bowed my head;
“There is no peace on earth,” I said;

“For hate is strong,
And mocks the song

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;

The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,

With peace on earth, good-will to men.”

What is John Boehner thinking?

Perhaps I’ll take time to expound upon the answer (below) to my own question a bit later, but look at the loopholes in a CROmnibus that deserves to be thrown over the fiscal cliff.

Republicans leaving anti-rights restoration provision in appropriations bill
Holey cow, the loopholes! It’s a golden calf for amnesty. The big, central bankster financed, transnational tycoons who butter the Republican bosses’ bread want it bad. Think cheaper labor. Think North American Union/Integration; the plans have been in the works for years, semi-secret, semi… not. Think Great American Bring-down, as the wealthiest 1% of 1% float their money in overseas markets (and in the hoarding of United States resources).

The Giver, the Movie, Out on Disc, Suggested

By: Arlen Williams
Gulag Bound

It was almost December, and Jonas was beginning
to be frightened.

And so the story beings. Written two decades ago, it has been called the first dystopian novel for youths, something notable to Gulag Bound. While it was still fresh on the scene, Jeff Bridges began seeking to make a movie of it, at first hoping his father Lloyd could play its elder lead. Sixteen years later he received that role, himself.

GiverCharacterMap

It is almost December and now the film may be seen in the solitude of home; and as it happens, the story has something of a Christmas theme. Call it Christmastide in one dream of a post-Agenda 21 world. Is such a thing “sustainable?”

In this instance, the author of the book, Lois Lowry, recommends the movie. I confess seeing more movies end-to-end than reading books that way, especially since the alarms of our very dystopically prone 2008. Books are great for taking in nearly the full set of meanings and contexts intended by an author full of thoughts. Movies take less time to tell the story, while resting the intention-juggling concentrator of one’s mind.

A well made film may focus on the main things and despite its relatively fast pace, furnish space for the viewer’s filling-in of his own first and second impressions.

Main things I was very pleased to find this movie zeroing-in upon are four observations I’ve been grateful to gain over the years, about collectivist, statist, elitist engineered, and perversely labeled “progressive” societies:

  • they lie, even against nature itself, especially human nature
  • they steal, possessions and freedom, and where they may…
  • they coerce, even to extort one’s due role of who He is under God
  • inevitably, in one way or various others, they murder.

And here we are, almost December of 2014 and how many are coming to understand?


To understand adequately we must receive what is given from the greatest, outside of us, outside what many would allow.
