Commiserations with Gratitude to France, from Gulag Bound

By: Arlen Williams

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.”

Tragic Boehner Boners Abound in ‘CROmnibus’ Funding Bill!

By: Arlen Williams

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.

Obama’s Dictate: Chinese Get 10 Year Visas, Lender’s Leverage

Barack Obama’s 11-5 Presser: Sociopath? Possessed? or Just a Collectivist Puppet?

By: Arlen Williams
Gulag Bound

“But the principles that we’re fighting for — the — the — the things that motivate me every single day
and motivate my staff every day — those things aren’t going to change.”
 

Is the Man in the White House Mentally Ill? asks Dave Daubenmire, of Pass The Salt Ministries. About my own title, he wonders about the first two possibilities. Then he cites the characteristics he found which generally profile a sociopath. I chipped in the third option, just a collectivist puppet. My caveat about it is the one I have in much of the work of identifying and understanding collectivists who, one way or another, are achievers within the globalist, statist/cartelizer complex. Beware the fallacy of presumed mutual exclusion between apparent alternatives.

I have seen assessments of Obama’s quite apparent narcissism since 2009. One easily sees anti-social behavior in, for just one example, his alliance with Planned Parenthood, seventy-nine percent of whose busy abortion mills are in or within walking distance of black and Hispanic communities. Obama’s collectivist and pro-jihadi alliances and characteristics are the subject of numerous books and documentaries — and the news itself, if one understands the man.

Does it not have to take someone quite sociopathic in nature to lead others in the demonic work of Marxofascism? (Neo-Marxism, state capitalism, or redistributive corporatism, if you prefer.) It deceives, it cheats, it steals, and somehow, it always seems to murder along the way, often in great, quantity of innocent victims — and quality of its opposition. The patterns are clear, whether from the last one-hundred years of world history, or dating back to the French Revolution.

As for the occult, one may also read the published attestation about Obama at the 2009 Democratic National Convention in Denver, his entering a private room with others, who then engage in odd and disturbing chanting; then his coming out a noticeably more confident and dynamic man, according to that hearsay account.

Without taking quotations out of Mr. Daubenmire’s well constructed context, here is the link again, to his brief article.

U.S. Senators Shaheen, Franken & Schumer Implicated in IRS Abuse of Patriot Nonprofits

By: Arlen Williams

The kind of person who should be effecting military policy? Or, any?

The kind of person who should be effecting military policy? Or, any?

How many New Hampshirites will see this before voting today? How about Minnesotans; will more than a few care?

Published late last night by Daily Caller, linked below, but we draw the second excerpt to show the conspiratorial nature of lupine Marxoids in U.S. senators’ wool suits (emphasis added):

Democratic New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen was principally involved in a plot with Lois Lerner and President Barack Obama’s political appointee at the IRS to lead a program of harassment against conservative nonprofit groups during the 2012 election, according to letters exclusively obtained by The Daily Caller.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) did not want to publicly release 2012 correspondences exchanged between the IRS and Jeanne Shaheen at her personal Washington office: the agency delayed releasing the information to a major conservative super PAC multiple times, even threatening to see the super PAC in court, according to emails.

[…]

Shaheen got the inside info from the IRS, making it clear she was the point person in a group composed of six close Democratic colleagues including Chuck Schumer and Al Franken, who joined with Shaheen in quietly writing a letter to then-IRS commissioner Doug Shulman expressing their concern about new nonprofit groups engaging in political activity in 2012.

Democrat’s Call for Straight GOP Federal Voting, an Incremental Step

By: Arlen Williams
Gulag Bound

The Sovereignty Campaign

Article of the Hour
Obama always pointing the finger of blame at someone else

Columnist Michael Goodwin, admittedly a registered Democrat, distinctly makes the case for voting GOP, to Americas of at least limited vision. His entire New York Post commentary, published this Sunday morning, just before the General Elections of 2014, is recommended. Here is much of it.

The extraordinary pile-up of crises has turned the usual White House blame game into something more lethal: a shootout in a lifeboat. The presidency is sinking, but we are expected to believe that only the president is blameless.

It won’t wash. The problems cannot be fixed by firing one or two members of the president’s team, or all of them. Something else, something more fundamental, is happening.

We are witnessing the total collapse of a bad idea. Obamaism, a quasi-socialist commitment to a more powerful government at home and an abdication of American leadership around the world, is being exposed as a historic calamity. It is fueling domestic fear and global disorder and may well lead to a world war.

If there is a smidgen of a silver lining, it is that the unraveling, complete with Obama’s shameless attempts to duck responsibility, is playing out on the eve of the midterm elections. Fortunately, voters seem ready to respond by giving Republicans control of both houses of congress.

I second that emotion, and not just because Obama is a failure. For all his narcissism, he didn’t make this mess alone.

He was aided and abetted by every Democrat in Congress. They marched in lockstep with his cockamamie policies, from ObamaCare to open borders. They protected corrupt leaders in numerous federal agencies, from the IRS to the Genera Services Administration. They stymied efforts to find the truth about Benghazi and the Fast and Furious gunrunning debacle.

They ceded their constitutional obligations and allowed Obama to crash the system of checks and balances. The vast majority stood silent while he gutted the military and abandoned our allies, including Israel, Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and courted Iran, the most menacing nation on earth.

With painfully few exceptions, Democrats put their loyalty to him above their duty to America.

And now they must be punished. All of them.

“This is a national emergency,” the crier calls, “and the only responsible action is to vote Republican for every federal office.”

Sadly, even this essay fails to deliver comprehension of the depths and extents of our emergency. No mention is made of the global, imperialist tyranny at work against our freedom, nor the leviathan tentacles of that beast, including but not limited to:

  • cultural Marxism
  • UN sovietization of all nations
  • Agenda 21 and transnational trade agreement usurpations
  • the surveillance state
  • fascistic government intimidation, nor
  • the new internal militarism as weaponry against The People.

Left unaddressed are many direct violations of not only right of property and our overall liberty, but of the very right to life of astoundingly so many, in state condoned, even taxpayer fed abortion on demand throughout gestation.

The broad brushing required, this general election is not necessarily a pleasant scenario for those who would prefer much better choices, plural, on the ballot. Neither is it the most propitious for the Sovereignty Campaign’s nascent work of adding new authenticity to the process. But we will continue to demonstrate individual candidates’ electoral advantages and their all too common disadvantages, for the pressing of America’s governing principle: each citizen’s sovereignty under God, with state then national sovereignty to guard it, to protect our natural rights.

This general election’s state of urgency underscores that what we are doing now must prepare for a much better effect in the party nominating season, next election cycle — much better than the very unfriendly historic trend, as indicated by this result, borrowed from the term limits movement:

Incumbent-nominations-TLUSC

That is why we must continue to demonstrate the gaps that exist in the process, through and well after our general elections. We are digging into existing conservative and libertarian candidate surveys, to show what they do and do not effectively address, or address at all. Findings will be reported, hand to the plow.

Churning through that data will not only show where elected officials are not being measured well, by some of their key criteria for office, but also not informed of them. Then, in harmony with the patriotic efforts of others, we must fill those essential gaps, adding to a more powerful popular sovereignty applying coalition, ground continuing to be gained with no time to spare. An infantry with gaps in the line is easily defeated. A broad phalanx is not.

Thanking this thinking Democrat, sentient outside their collectivist hive mind, we catch Mr. Goodwin’s conclusion.

Sparing even a favorite Democrat or two could allow Obama to spin defeat as a minor loss. Most worrisome, if Dems keep the Senate, the election will further entrench a corrupt government and further erode America’s strength and influence.

That is not a chance worth taking. Six years is enough. Collective punishment is the appropriate answer.

If there were any doubts the Obama Democrats cannot be trusted, look at their scurrilous campaigns. From coast to coast, their message is uniformly odious: Republicans are waging a “war on women” and they are racists.

That’s it. They can’t defend the legislation they passed, the economy they produced or the foreign policy they supported. Most don’t want to be seen with Obama, yet they take the money he raises and follow his lead in exploiting race and gender fault lines.

Scraping the bottom of the rancid barrel, they prove they will do anything to hold on to power. They cannot be allowed to succeed.

It is time for them to go.

And always now – before and after office holders are again elected, is time to keep coming to the office ourselves, getting The People’s authentic work done. In this particular election there is so little to gain, yet so much to continue to lose. Let us keep our stride and upend the emergency trend.
