Sing It America

Our American Paradise is Not Lost

By: Lloyd Marcus

Sing It America

At first I was a bit hurt. Later, I became angry. Working on a family history project documenting the extraordinary life of my 87 year old black dad, I noticed that a few relatives were not returning my phone calls. My brother said those particular relatives were non-responsive because they want nothing to do with me. They disagree with my politics and are embarrassed by me and my website. They dislike me saying blacks are not victims in America. They also hate me criticizing blacks in front of white people. So in my relative’s minds, I am one big Uncle Tom traitor.

Meanwhile, I caught the local TV news while in Baltimore visiting my dad. Ten blacks including a nine year old girl were shot by blacks over the weekend, three died. http://bsun.md/1KRTsxB Baltimore along with other cities controlled by Democrats continue to break records; reaching new heights of blacks murdering blacks. http://fxn.ws/1FLLwq4 And my idiot relatives are angry at me because whites hear me criticizing such behavior. Rather than honestly dealing with the issues plaguing urban blacks, my relatives foolishly believe racial loyalty means turning a blind eye or blaming whitey. I thought, “Fine. My siblings and I will honor my dad with or without those relatives.”

Another thing I can not wrap my head around is my relative’s insistence on believing the lie that blacks are victims in America, despite overwhelming evidence proving otherwise. It is as if my relatives believe maintaining a victim mindset is tied to racial loyalty. In an unprecedented act of appeasement to black rioters, thugs and looters, Baltimore awarded the family of Freddy Gray, a criminal, a settlement of $6.4 million before the trial of the six accused police officers. http://on.wsj.com/1JQgMpH

The Bible speaks of people who simply refuse to accept truth. God turns them over to a reprobate mind. In other words, stiff-necked, hateful and racist blacks are doomed to squander away the blessing of having been born in America – the greatest land of opportunity on the planet.

While in the Baltimore/Washington DC area, I was honored to speak and sing at an event titled, Sing It America! http://bit.ly/1QhwaiT The purpose of the annual event is to save our national anthem. Liberals have concluded that the Star Spangled Banner is too oriented towards war. The Left desires a new national anthem more world friendly based on peace. Only 100 thousand signatures were needed to change our national anthem. Here is the scary part. The Left’s campaign to change our national anthem only fell short by 9,000 signatures.

Sing It America was an all day event in which the Star Spangled Banner was performed every hour on the hour. The stage was in front of the Lincoln Memorial. It was my first time back to the memorial since elementary school. In the presence of Lincoln in his chair and reading his second inaugural speech carved in stone on the walls, I got a lump in my throat; very moving. One could not help reflecting on the chaos and purposeful divisiveness going on in our country today. I was struck by the numerous times Lincoln referred to God in his speech. Those who say we are not a Christian nation are wrong.

My speech focused on my dad who in 1952 was among a handful of blacks who broke the color barrier to become Baltimore City firefighters. The white firefighters hated my dad and did not want him there. Dad was humiliated unable to drink from the same coffee pot or use the same eating utensils as the white fighters. And yet, despite those horrific conditions, Dad won Firefighter of the Year two times. He did not win because of Affirmative Action, lowered standards or activists proclaiming, “It’s the black guy’s turn.”

A young assistant pastor of an east Baltimore storefront church, Dad won because he was excellent. I told the crowd how I long to see black youths across America striving for excellence; rather than engaging in the evil, lie and hate inspired Black Lives Matter nonsensical movement. I shared how I am sick of the divisiveness. I do not refer to myself as an African-American. I am Lloyd Marcus, American – period.

Folks, Sing It America gave me hope. Every orator acknowledged that our country is on a path to destruction, but expressed great faith and hope for our future. While the evil secular progressive agenda appears to be flourishing, Christians and patriots are waking up and pushing back. http://bit.ly/1QFM1IB

If only my ego had not gotten in the way. Mary and I were having lunch with a friend when two white cops entered the restaurant. I felt lead to approach their table and express my support in light of the weekly assassinations and crazy hatred for police promoted in the media. http://bit.ly/1F2wlOs I chose not to follow through for fear that my emotions would cause me to tear up, thus embarrassing myself.

A day or so later, Mary asked if I remembered the police in the restaurant? She said, she wanted to thank them, but knew she would not make it through her first sentence without crying. Mary’s words confirmed that we were divinely lead to bless those officers with our words. I blew an opportunity to be a divine vessel. Who knows what those cops were going through or dealing with that day. My words could have offered a little encouragement and a little strength.

Visiting my dad, the Lincoln Memorial and participating in Sing It America was awesome and inspiring. I’m energized to continue fighting the good fight to restore my beloved America and enlighten the masses. My wife Mary and I are enjoying a leisurely drive back home to Florida.

Of course, Mary would not think of leaving Baltimore without a Maryland crab-cake; huge chunks of lump crab-meat with very little filling. Folks, you can not get that anywhere else but in the Baltimore/Washington DC area. Mary’s favorite crab cake is from G & M restaurant near BWI airport.

Hugh Hewitt

How “Mittmentum” Backfired on Hugh Hewitt

By: Cliff Kincaid
Accuracy in Media

Salem radio commentator Hugh Hewitt has become a media darling for his “expert” opinions, as he lectures Republicans on how to handle not only the media but the issues. However, Hewitt is the same commentator who had flatly predicted a big Mitt Romney win. On October 22, 2012, Hewitt announced, “Romney’s momentum will continue unbroken, and his demeanor and especially his poise will be the takeaway for any undecideds that are left…Romney won the debates decisively, which means he will win on November 6. Some things are simple, and this is one of them.”

Hewitt, known as Hugh Blewit, failed to understand that President Obama had organized “the strongest grassroots organization in the history of American presidential politics,” in the words of Jeremy Bird, the National Field Director of Obama for America. This was a network comprised of more than two million volunteers, backed by neighborhood political teams and 2,700 field organizers. They carried the day.

We noted at the time that Republican strategist Karl Rove was raising $300 million for television ads depicting Republican candidate Mitt Romney as a would-be efficient manager of the U.S economy. Rove had advised Republicans not to call Obama a socialist, believing that undecided, moderate or left-leaning voters would jump to Obama’s side if that charge were leveled against him. This was a terrible miscalculation. It meant that a significant percentage of conservative voters didn’t think Romney was up to the task of identifying and rolling back Obama-style Marxism. They didn’t turn out for Romney. They also gave up on the Republican establishment, a continuing wave of outrage and discontent that accounts for outsiders moving to the top of the field of Republicans contending for the GOP 2016 presidential nomination.

But the establishment is back, in the form of such personalities as Karl Rove, a Fox News contributor, and Hugh Hewitt.

A moderator during the recent Republican debate broadcast by CNN, Hewitt engaged in back-and-forth with candidate Donald Trump over a Trump interview on Hewitt’s Salem network radio show. Trump complained that Hewitt was playing gotcha with trick questions about Arab personalities and names in the Middle East. Hewitt has made it clear he doesn’t like Trump’s style and approach.

Now that candidate Ben Carson is under fire by the media for offering his opinion that a Muslim who believes in Sharia should not be president, Hewitt has gone back on CNN to take issue with Carson and offer his advice. On Tuesday he told CNN’s Carol Costello that Carson is a rookie who has to work on getting his message right.

Confirming his role as a gatekeeper, Jim Geraghty of National Review says that Republican candidates are “attempting to showcase their interest in Hewitt’s priorities.” Similarly, Politico says Hewitt “has captured the ears of the GOP and earned the trust of virtually all of its biggest names.” But why? As proven by his faulty prediction in 2012, it seems he is too tied up in the establishment Republican Party view to understand the progressive wave that is not only still strong in the U.S., but around the world. Despite how things may look on the Democratic side right now, these forces are strong and believe that history is on their side.

In terms of their most recent gains, consider that the socialists have solidified their control of Greece, anti-American socialist Jeremy Corbyn has been elected the head of the Labor Party in Britain, and socialists seem poised to win the Canadian national elections on October 19. Even if the New Democratic Party (NDP) doesn’t win nationally, the left-wing party has already taken control of Alberta, the oil-rich and most conservative part of the country.

Here, avowed socialist Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is strongly challenging Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. He draws huge crowds—most of them young people—and attracts people in the New Age movement who believe in bizarre things like a federal Department of Peace. This may sound strange, but the movement has tens of millions of followers who forecast a new Aquarian Age, apparently to be led by Sanders and the leader of a new global religion.

Having misjudged one presidential contest, it would be nice if the public were reminded of the details surrounding Hewitt’s prediction of a Romney victory in 2012. His blog at the time had proclaimed, “Why Romney Wins: the Economy is Tanking.” It is easier to pontificate than actually examine what is happening out in the country, as I recently did when covering a Sanders for President rally. The surge for socialism is real and has taken hold among those being “educated” at our public universities. No wonder Sanders wants to give them free college, a maneuver that could guarantee the Democrats millions of votes.

In a 2012 column entitled “Mittmentum Builds,” Hewitt seemed to have New Age powers of clairvoyance, saying that “He who surges last surges best in a presidential campaign, and it appears that Romney has indeed caught the last big wave.” He said that an “amazing” Romney speech in Wisconsin “is the sort of performance that flows from a candidate who knows he is winning.”

Let’s remember that Republican Mitt Romney lost an easily winnable election. He got only 48 percent of the vote, just two points more than Senator John McCain’s (R-AZ) total in 2008.

Candidates get scorched for making perceived mistakes, in response to trick or gotcha questions, but commentators are rarely held accountable for their errors. Let’s take a look back at some other predictions from the 2012 election, as reflected in headlines or actual quotations:

  • Karl Rove’s Prediction: Mitt Romney wins 285 electoral votes to President Obama’s 253.
  • George Will Predicts 321-217 Romney Romp.
  • Larry Kudlow (CNBC) predicts Romney Landslide. “A huge victory for a principled Romney.”
  • Ann Coulter confident of Romney victory.
  • Why Glenn (Beck) thinks Romney will have a decisive victory on Tuesday.
  • Dick Morris: Romney will win popular vote by 5 or 10 points.
  • Charles Krauthammer: It will be very close but Romney will win the presidency.
  • Landslide (win for Romney): Limbaugh predicts 2012 election.
  • (Michael) Barone predicts Romney wins handily.
  • Fred Barnes in The Weekly Standard: “Why Romney Will Win.”
  • Jonah Goldberg: “I think Romney wins in an absolute nailbiter.”
  • Matt Vespa at Red State: “My Prediction: Romney Wins Comfortably.”
  • Edward Morrissey (Hot Air): “Joe Biden Can’t Save Obama.”
  • James Pethokoukis (American Enterprise Institute): “…Mitt Romney will be elected the 45th President of the United States, winning the two-party popular vote 51% to 49% and the electoral vote by 301 to 237 for President Obama.”

Commentators get things wrong, and that doesn’t disqualify them from continuing to hold their jobs and make predictions. But getting a presidential contest wrong, without analyzing why it happened and whether the progressives are still outsmarting the Republicans, is a recipe for another disaster.

The headline over that October 22, 2012 Hugh Hewitt column was, “Romney Wins Again, And Left Gets It Wrong—Again.” The left was not only “right,” but is as strong as ever. Today, they have the pope on their side.

Republicans listen to and follow a Pied Piper like Hewitt at their own risk.

Flooding the Nation with ‘Syrian Refugees’: American Lives Matter

By: James Simpson
American Thinker

The serially dishonest administration, represented abysmally by Haute Moron Secretary of State, John Kerry, has haughtily announced that for FY 2016, starting October 1, the administration is raising the refugee cap from its previous 70,000 to 85,000, this year, and up to 100,000 next year, all to make room for Syrian “refugees.” Two weeks ago he told members of Congress the administration wanted to bring in 10,000 Syrians. Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley responded with a letter asking Kerry to clarify.

The administration initially proposed raising the cap to 75,000, but Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees, and Migration, Ann Richard admitted they might add “more later.” The refugee resettlement industry, which makes about $1 billion/year placing refugees in our communities, is lobbying for 200,000, including 100,000 Syrians. Even Moveon.org has joined the campaign.

Additionally, Obama promised to use other avenues, like parole, asylum and temporary protected status to allow more Syrians. Grassley reminded them that they did not have independent authority to do this. Increasing the cap requires consultation with Congress by law. As it turns out, the law also requires hearings – which to this point Congress has never deemed necessary. Perhaps it’s time for a change.

The FBI has said it cannot vet Syrians for jihadi connections or sympathies because Syria is a “failed state.”  Even Obama’s own Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, has said that the threat of ISIS infiltrating America by hiding among Syrian refugees is a “huge concern.” ISIS has very publicly warned it will do just that and claims to have 4,000 fighters in Western Europe already. Even among Syrian refugees, a fifth claim ISIS is a positive influence in the world! Warnings have been issued that 2 in every 100 Syrian refugees is an ISIS fighter. Do the math, of 15,000 that would equate to 300 members of ISIS here in the U.S.

Despite these facts, in an almost surreal display of ignorance, defiance, carelessness, vindictiveness, or perhaps some combination, Secretary Richard has said that the vetting process for Syrians will be “streamlined.” The Pope, who is rapidly revealing himself to be of the Liberation Theology (i.e. Marxist) persuasion, will almost certainly use his visit this week to shame Congress into taking Syrians.

Do American lives matter at all to these people? That is actually a rhetorical question at this point. The answer is plainly a resounding “no.” A column at Allen West’s website pointed out yesterday that the administration can’t afford to shell out $100 million to provide bullet proof glass for Marine recruiting offices, despite the recent Chattanooga murder of four Marines and a Sailor. Yet the benefits gladly afforded “refugees” amount to significantly more than that.

Refugees jump to the front of the line for all welfare available to Americans and some we can’t even get. Following is a laundry list of promised benefits to arriving refugees:

  • a furnished home
  • help with rent
  • health care
  • nutritious, affordable food
  • English language classes
  • help building job, computer & financial literacy skills
  • education for their children
  • social services and community support
  • legal services toward residency & citizenship”

As a result of this preferential treatment, the wait list for public housing in Manchester, NH, for example, has jumped from a few weeks to five years. But not for refugees. They are placed immediately. And as we have seen, the refugee population is increasingly toxic — a huge number are Muslims and many are turning to terrorism. The American Somali Muslim population is fertile recruiting ground for ISIS and other terrorist groups. The Chattanooga shooter’s family originally settled in the U.S. as refugees. And now the administration plans to bring in a group of people guaranteed to seed ISIS operatives among our communities? Mall beheadings and mass shootings anyone? More “workplace violence?”

This cannot stand.

With its usual stupidity, Congressional leadership has evaded the appropriations process and will attempt to avoid a government shutdown by passing a continuing resolution (CR) prior to the start of the fiscal year. That is 10 days away.

We hereby demand Congress insert a one-line provision in the CR:

No funding shall be provided for bringing Syrians into the U.S. under any program.

I urge you to call the GOP House and Senate Appropriations Committees, their Chairmen and members, House and Senate leadership, and your GOP reps and senators.  Unfortunately the Democrats have already boldly signaled their contempt for America. They are a lost cause.

If you live in a state where one of these members resides, be sure to call that member in every single one of his/her offices. Also you can find the contact information for your own reps and senators here:

It should not take longer than a few minutes to blast through these calls.

Will Congress for once stand up for the American people and prevent this malevolent administration from visiting even more misery on us? Or will it wilt under pressure from the organized Left, which now includes the Pope, guaranteeing future mass murder in our midst?

Syrian immigration, under any program, is an immediate, existential threat to America.

American lives matter. Demand Congress act. Make the calls!

Our Weasel Of The Week Nominees!! – 09/22/15

The Watcher’s Council


It’s time once again for the Watcher’s Council’s ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for the award of the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations!

The Mainstream Media!

The Noisy Room: My nominee this week is the mainstream media for attacking Trump, Carson and Cruz on the, “Is Obama a Muslim?” issue. Behold, the ultimate Freudian slip where Obama quoted his ‘Muslim faith.’ That was in 2008 and I would say that most Americans now believe Obama is actually a Muslim. It’s politically incorrect to say so, but there it is. In 2012, Ed Klein came forward and pointed out that the Reverend Jeremiah Wright said he “made it comfortable” for Obama to accept Christianity without having to renounce Islam. That is one of the cruxes of Liberation Theology. Drudge linked to the now infamous slip by Obama. The media claims to have examined every facet of the possibility of Obama being Muslim. Except they did not look at his Islamic roots or leanings – at all. Let me ask you this… what has Obama done that makes you think he isn’t a Muslim? Hmmm? It’s almost as if they are laying the groundwork for Obama to ‘come out of the closet’ as being a Muslim at some point, or having a sudden conversion. It was a trap laid for conservative Republicans who disappointed the MSM by telling the truth.

I want to quote my friend William Palumbo of the USA Transnational Report: “So what if Obama has a Muslim father, has a Muslim stepfather, has a Muslim first name, has a Muslim middle name, went to a Muslim school in Indonesia as a child, registered as a Muslim, often attended a mosque with his Muslim stepfather in Indonesia, had his Harvard tuition paid for by a Muslim, went out of his way to find Muslim roommates during college, has repeatedly funded the radical terrorist group the Muslim Brotherhood, has invited members of the Muslim Brotherhood to the White House, has Muslim Brotherhood members in his cabinet, was endorsed in 2008 by the Islamic terrorist group Hamas, told the head of NASA to make “reaching out to the Muslim world” one of the space agency’s top priorities, went to the Middle East and told Muslim leaders that America isn’t a Christian nation, but a Muslim one, told a New York magazine that the Muslim call to prayer over a loudspeaker “is one of the prettiest sounds on Earth during sunset,” was listed as a Muslim on the registration form at a Catholic school in Hawaii [according to reporter Kim Barker of the Chicago Tribune], refused to attend the Charlie Hebdo memorial because he once told the United Nations, “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” tried to place the radical Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt’s Presidential Palace, handed five Taliban leaders over to the Taliban, removed sanctions against Iran’s radical Muslim government as he secretly negotiated with the Ayatollahs, and told George Stephanopoulos about his “Muslim faith.” All while deporting Syrian Christian refugees, while forcing the US to accept 10,000 more Muslim Syrian refugees, and he exclusively quotes the Koran during speeches too. Again, there’s no possible way that Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim.” At least the MSM is enhancing their weasel creds.

MSNBC’s Chuck Todd!

Don Surber: Mustela MSNBCus and resident troll Chuck Todd for asking Doctor Ben Carson if a Muslim can be president. Donald Trump had the best answer: I thought we already did!

Major General Kenneth Dahl

JoshuaPundit: I found it difficult whom to nominate for this one, as it’s really shared between Terrence Russell, an official with the Pentagon’s Joint Personnel Recovery Agency, attorney Eugene Fidell, and Maj. Gen. Kenneth Dahl, the senior officer who carried out an investigation of Bowe Bergdahl’s desertion case. They’re all doing their best, no doubt at the Obama Administration’s orders to get Bergdahl off with a slap on the wrist. But I’m going with Dahl because even as an Obama promoted General, he ought to know better and have some sense of honor.

The new narrative? The Washington Post plays the despicable lachrimae. You see, poor Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl was fed up with the mission in Afghanistan and of course, his leaders. So he decided, just as a harmless protest to desert his post and go AWOL.

Looking to make a stand, Bergdahl hatched a plan: He would run away from his platoon’s tiny outpost in Paktika province late on June 29, 2009. He would stay away from the Army a day, maybe two, and then reappear about 19 miles away at a larger installation and demand to air his grievances with a general.

And then of course, poor Bergdahl was captured by the Taliban and ‘subjected to brutal captivity’ according to General Dahl. Of course, we don’t know that and neither does General Dahl. He only knows what Bergdahl told him, and Bowe Bergdahl has proven again and again to be a serial liar.

Not that it matters but this new story directly contradicts the note Bergdahl left for his unit saying he was deserting, leaving to start a new life. It also ignores the 2010 Pentagon report that declared unequivocally that he deserted and the Taliban’s account that he was intoxicated when they picked him up. Bergdahl’s original BS, that he was captured while lagging behind on patrol was such flagrant nonsense that he dropped it fairly quickly.

Meanwhile. Our Dear Leader released five dangerous Taliban commanders for this creep, and the word is out to get Bergdahl off, even though six far better men died trying to find him.

General Dahl knows that very well. But he has apparently decided to click his heels, salute and follow orders.

Well, there it is. What a despicable group of  Weasels… ANY OF THEM COULD WIN! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!

George Ramos

Jorge Ramos Wannabes in the Press

Univision’s Jorge Ramos, whose daughter works for the Hillary Clinton for President campaign, doesn’t care about fair and balanced journalism. He is only concerned about representing his people. This is what journalism has become—news coverage that casts ethnic groups and special interests  as victims of the white racist capitalist power structure.

Thanks to Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the socialist running for president, we are learning that one of the latest examples of victim groups is students, who freely decide to go to college and in many cases take on student debt to pay for it.

Of this victim group, black and Hispanic college students are suffering tremendously, according to a story appearing last Wednesday in The Washington Post. It claimed that blacks and Hispanics are “at a higher risk of financial instability based on their college majors…” Inside, the paper trumpeted the news in a headline, “Racial disparity in degree selection.” The news was this: “African American and Hispanic students disproportionately earn more bachelor’s degrees in low-paying majors, putting them at higher risk for financial instability after graduation, according to a new study from Young Invincibles, an advocacy group.”

This “advocacy group” has decided that representatives of certain minority groups are somehow entitled to be awarded certain jobs with certain pay grades. In the Post story touting this so-called study, blacks and Hispanics are considered victims of racism, creating wealth “inequality,” because of the college degrees and majors they have freely decided to pursue.

But wait: didn’t these blacks and Hispanics freely choose those majors and fields of study? Wasn’t freedom of choice involved?

In the eyes of the liberal media, such freedom does not exist. People are being forced into their choices in life by the forces of capitalism and white supremacy.

Here’s what the paper said: “There is no singular reason for the racial disparities within majors, but centuries of racial discrimination, uneven budgetary support for K-12 education and poor academic advising and student support contribute to the problem, said Tom Allison, deputy director of policy and research at Young Invincibles, and one of the authors of the study.”

In other words, the heavy hand of racism and the capitalist system somehow forced these students to choose these majors, in order to put them at a disadvantage.

Still, the story by Danielle Douglas-Gabriel left me in the dark about how these factors may determine the selection of majors. The explanation was offered in the next paragraph: “At the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, chemistry professor William LaCourse has seen his share of students of color with a lot of potential lose interest in science fields when they struggle in a course.”

Those science fields paid better than the majors and careers they ended up pursuing. The students gave up their “potential,” a subjective measurement, to go for the easier courses of study.

The phrase “when they struggle in a course” could mean they were goofing off, not smart enough, or just not interested. In any case, it seems hard to argue that this is because of some racist plot or budget axe. But that is indeed what the Post was implying.

The purpose is to depict minority groups as somehow victims of their own choices.

Could it be that blacks and Hispanics are giving up on the harder fields of study because they either require more work or because they have decided to pick a different major for some other reason? This fact of life has been transformed from a “study” into a Washington Post story attempting to blame everything and everyone else for this “problem” except the students themselves.

The whole point of the story is that the students can’t be blamed for their own decisions. They are victims of the system, by virtue of the fact that they are black or Hispanic. That’s why “centuries of racial discrimination, uneven budgetary support for K-12 education and poor academic advising and student support” have to be blamed.

This is socialist “journalism,” if you can call it journalism, based on the idea that people are members of groups victimized by the capitalist system, trapped into lower incomes and denied their right to make more money. This evil system forced them to “struggle” for higher grades.

It is this kind of “journalism” that also depicts students taking out college loans and going into debt as somehow being victims of capitalism. They are given an opportunity to go to college but they have to pay for it. What an injustice! The Young Invincibles says student debt has “exploded,” as if it has been inflicted on these young people through no choice of their own.

Since these students have been brainwashed into believing that taking on debt is not their fault, it is no wonder they are suckers for the Bernie Sanders brand of socialism which says that their burden must be lifted and a college education should be made available for “free.”

It is a sad commentary on what colleges are teaching that such a scheme is attracting thousands of students to the Sanders campaign.
