Is Climate Change the New Marxism?

The radicals behind the movement that are championing “climate change” are mostly liberal progressives who want to undermine the only system that has brought about less poverty in the world - it is called “free enterprise capitalism”. In the United States it is the Democrats (a/k/a Democrat Socialists (Bernie Sanders), Progressives, and liberal Democrats) who are clamoring for these anti-free enterprise rules and regulations with the main intention of instituting “income re-distribution” and punishing the so-called “rich” and successful, the people who have created millions of jobs, and as a result they have become wealthy through their dedication and hard work. The liberal radicals have been demonizing the “anti-poverty” entrepreneurs for years, and are now using the emotional term “climate change” as their catchword for achieving their insidious goals of trying to rid the world of capitalism and free enterprise.

Look around you today, what do you see? Most public and private schools are staffed by by teachers and professors that preach the Utopian” (really should be called “Dystopian) economic philosophy of Socialism (a/k/a Progressiveism, Marxism and Communism). These radical educators have invaded the campuses of the U.S. in droves, with some estimates that 80% to 90% of the faculty members are radicals trying to inculcate their philosophy into the mushy minds of impressionable students who have not met life's challenges yet, and are susceptible to the liberal, radical propaganda put forth by these teachers and professors.

Look at the phenomenon of the voters of the U.S. who elected a president twice who proclaimed that he wanted to “fundamentally change” the U.S. even though he was voted the most liberal senator, as a U.S senator representing Illinois. The fact that he was black and articulate helped him, along with his political cronies, to take over the reins of government. In the almost 7 years of his presidency, he has not let his fellow radicals down, he has in many areas transformed our government into a European- styled country with his out-of-control (many deemed to be unconstitutional) dictates and presidential directives.

Well, has his transformative changes worked for the betterment of our country or have they hindered the economic and political growth of the U.S.? Let's take a look at what has happened over these past 7 years. Today, according to Obama and his fellow Democrats, they proclaim that the biggest threat facing the U.S. and the world is not “IsIamic terrorism”, but “climate change”. Can you imagine a sane person equating the march of Islamic terrorism across the world with “climate change” being the major threat to western civilization? Well, the Democrats, including their candidates for president, have actually stated that as a fact. How naive and out of touch with reality can they be? It looks like the “Rules for Radicals”, expounded by Saul Alinsky, philosophy has taken hold of the Democrat Party (both Obama and Hillary Clinton are acolytes of Saul Alinsky). Alinsky's rules have been used by Obama to push his radical socialist agenda forward. The results have been unspectacular, to say the least, and harmful to the United States.

Here are the sorry results, 93 million potential workers out of the workforce and not counted in the BLS unemployment rate of 5.1%, the true rate (the U-6 rate) is over 10%, 48 million people on food stamps, 50 million people at or below the poverty line, the GDP has hovered around the 1% to 2% growth rate when 4% should be the minimum growth rate for real progress, and one of the biggest budget busters facing us today is the Affordable Care Act, (Obamacare) that has covered only 10 million (mostly by government subsidy) out of the 40 million touted that would be covered when this monstrosity was debated and passed only by a Democrat Congress. The big costs of Obamacare will start to kick in starting in 2016.

So, when our “esteemed” leaders proclaim that “climate change” is our major national threat, they should be looking in the mirror to see who are the real threats to our country are – they might just see the real threats of our country in the reflection in the mirror – it is themselves.

This presidential election in 2016 will be pivotable for our country's survival. Do we continue “down the yellow-brick road” to disaster by electing more radicals or will we face the real threats facing us in a realistic manner? We must elect people to office who will not drag us down , both economically and politically, with the result of making us a copy of third world disaster cases like Venezuela and Cuba. You must vote Republican to save our republic.

Let's not continue following the Karl Marx playbook - free enterprise capitalism is the prescription for success not the tired failures of the tenets of Marxism as espoused by the Democrats. Climate change is just a smokescreen to undermine our capitalistic free enterprise system. Don't fall for it.

How Hillary Clinton's Lawlessness Gets Ignored

Got Law? How Hillary Clinton's Lawlessness Gets Ignored.

This Bill Whittle should open your eyes! Hillary Clinton breaks the law, gets people who work for her killed, lies to the American people...and she's still a media darling? How is that possible? Is the the example of corruption that the Democrats set for the younger generation?

MORT’s meanderings

Attention: Republican Presidential Candidates
We need to hear what your plans are for solving some of the most urgent threats to our nation – i.e., Illegal aliens crossing our borders; the economy that is not recovering but, is faltering; the smothering of the Free Market System by way too much Government regulation; the unfair, oppressive tax system; the crushing national debt run up beyond our ability to make a dent in it; the emasculation of our Armed Forces; the divisive mentality that is Obama’s specialty and that has us pitting one segment of our population against another -  all are vital issues to be addressed by the new President in 2016.
But, it is my assessment that the No.1 issue posing the most dire immediate threat to our security and to our very survival as a people and as a nation is – the rise of the lunacy that is militant Islam!
Under the lunacy that is the Obama Administration, we have not nor will we ever, take any meaningful steps to confront, much less seek, kill & obliterate ISIS or any other form of Islamist lunacy that is bent on destroying Israel and the United States and is dedicated to imposing Sharia law on every square inch of territory around the world.  
Sitting by and waiting to be attacked is lunacy on our part.  The next President of the United States must commit to pre-emptive strikes upon ISIS and the others who would do us harm.  We must seek out and destroy these mortal enemies of freedom and our Western way of civilized life.  If we are to survive; they must be obliterated from the surface of the Earth.  We must hear this from serious candidates for the Presidency.        No backbone, no commitment -  NO VOTE!   Got it?

Should the U.S. Ban All Firearms?

If you listen to President Obama and most of the Democrats, we need to pass more gun-control legislation in an attempt to avoid another mass shooting at another college or on a soft, vulnerable target like an elementary school, a movie theater, or a shopping mall. In fact, many of these anti-gun, liberal“progressive” individuals would like to see all guns banned and confiscated, the sooner the better.

President Obama, as usual, used the shooting at the Community College in Oregon to further his fanatical stance on national gun control. Here he was, piously proclaiming, that if we passed “meaningful” gun control legislation that that massacre wouldn't have happened. He made that statement without knowing what all the facts were concerning that shooting. We all know, or should know, that repeal of the 2nd Amendment will not ever happen, even if the Messiah (our president) and the Democrats would like to see that happen.

In his speech immediately following the Oregon college shooting, he mentioned that other countries have banned guns and, as a result, their crime rates fell. He mentioned Australia in particular. Well, let's see what has happened in Australia since they banned all firearms in that country.

It has been over 18 years since gun owners in Australia were forced (yes, forced) to surrender their firearms (640,381 to be exact) which cost Australian taxpayers over $500 million in reimbursement costs. Here are the results of that ban on firearms. Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2%; Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6%; Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44% (yes, that's 44%). In the State of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are up 300% (remember, while law-abiding citizens turned in their guns, the criminals did not and they still possess their guns). There also has been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults on the elderly, even while the residents were at home. The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in the hands of honest, law abiding citizens save lives and property, and, yes, anti- gun-control laws affect only the law abiding citizen and not the criminal.

Did you also notice that most all of these massacres have occurred in “Gun Free Zones” like church's, movie theaters, public schools, restaurants, college campuses, and shopping malls? Since criminals now are guaranteed that their “prey” is unarmed, these incidents in these vulnerable places, are made to order for a deranged individual to do his dirty work.

Mention should also be made that the cities and towns with the toughest gun-control laws are more prone to have crimes committed with guns (ex: Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, and New Orleans) - by the way, those cities and towns are all run by progressive liberal Democrats. I wonder why? So much for tougher gun-control laws.

Mention could also be made that the country of Switzerland requires that all it citizens own a firearm, and Switzerland has the lowest crime rate in the world, and that includes deaths by firearms. How come anti-gun fanatics like President Obama and former N.Y. Mayor Michael Bloomberg, don't mention that anomaly? Would it be because it doesn't fit their anti-gun agenda? Of course! They also forget to mention that most all these gun incidents were not committed by the “evil” NRA members or honest, law abiding, legal gun owning citizens.

So, to the question, “Should the U.S. Ban All Firearms”, the answer

is a resounding NO. As the old saying goes, “Guns don't kill people, people kill people” just like SUV's don't kill people, people driving SUV's kill people.

Culinary Administration

When Barack Obama vied for the presidency, he never realized
he bit off more than he could chew, and now finds he has no
appetite for it.

He thought he could make up the menu, not caring about the cost
of ingredients, or how to acquire them, and then have his chefs do
his bidding, putting it all together while he tees off. The problem
is, he doesn't know how to put a recipe (strategy) together.

It was a shock when he learned government operates with a fixed
menu called the Constitution. When he doesn't like the 'soup du jour,
he tries to order off the menu (executive order).

Any time he put on an apron and goes into the kitchen to concocted
something on his own, what ever he cooks up always turns out to
leave a lasting bad taste in ones mouth.

It takes more than ambiance for a successful operation.

Gates and Fences

The break-in at the DNC headquarters at the Watergate Office Complex
on June 17, 1970, in Washington, D.C. sparked what now indicates scandal
 about clandestine or illegal activity by adding "Gate" on the end of the activity.
For example: Monica-gate, Iran/Contra-gate, Travel-gate, etc.

By the nature of the Obama opaque administration's alleged misconduct and
 the, in contempt of congress Attorney General Eric Holder's stonewalling, a
 new and different designation is needed to replace 'gate' because a gate can
be opened.

Fences are designed to deter penetration, therefore Obama- fence is appropriate
 to use for various sections of the contentious challenges that face select committees
 investigating the VA-fence, the NSA-fence, the IRS-fence, the AP phone
records-fence, the Fast and Furious-fence, the Bergdahl-fence, the Gruber-fence,
 the Benghazi-fence and the DOJ reporter and Conservative targeting-fence.

“Political Correctness” is the Bane of a Civil Society

What is “political correctness”? A popular definition is: “ Political correctness is considered to be an unwritten set of rules by unelected, nosy, busybodies, who determine what you are free to say under the guise of tolerance, as set down mostly by liberals”. They (the P.C.liberals) are the judge, jury, and executioner of the words and actions of what people say or do. The liberals are always clamoring for “free speech”, but they are the one's who want to restrict free speech if it doesn't comply with their definition of what is right and wrong and proper. Political correctness is insidious and destructive in our free and open society, and is the antithesis of our guaranteed rights as citizens as enumerated in the 1st Amendment to the Constitution.

People, under our Constitution, have a right to be able to express themselves freely and openly, even if some think that speech and those expressions are stupid, hurtful or silly, and without having to censor what they say by some unelected self-styled member of the P.C. Police.

Look what's happening around us today. The loony liberals are going on the attack in order to prop up the Democrat candidates. They are trotting out the the same old “litmus test” questions that they always ask Republican candidates hoping that they will say something that the liberals will claim as being “politically incorrect”.

In almost every election cycle, the liberals bring up volatile social issues in order to divert attention away from the important issues facing our country, like national security, strengthening the economy, and the slowing down of the tremendous debt that we, as a nation, are piling up for our children and grandchildren to worry about in future years etc, etc. Already, the Republican candidates have had to answer “gotcha” questions by the liberal media on the topics of abortion, Muslims, same sex marriage, contraception, planned parenthood, and the phony “War on Women”.

Unfortunately, the Republican candidates fall for the “bait” and try to answer those questions - and as a result they get hammered by the media and the liberal Democrats as they twist and turn what the candidates say to make it a negative about them. The pejorative words that roll off the liberals lips as an example are, homophobes, sexist, racist, terrorist, and insensitive etc. These are some of the words and phrases used to describe the Republicans because they did not adhere to the P.C. orthodoxy as laid down by by the holier-than-thou liberals.

But, both Donald Trump and Ben Carson have not backed down, and rightfully so, and have stuck by what they said, or in Trump's case, what he did not say. Many people feel that that fortitude by these two, by not succumbing to the P.C. Police, is a breath of fresh air which should be the way to handle those “gotcha” questions by all the Republican candidates. People are sick and tired of politicians giving in to “political correctness” by trying to please the liberal left P.C. Police. They don't or should realize that they can't ameliorate the disdain that the liberals have for them, no matter what they say or do. They cannot win, so they should not get bogged down with those “gotcha” questions and move on to the meaningful questions that the public wants answers to.

Today, common everyday words are construed to have a negative P.C. meaning, according to these “protectors” of society. Words such as “golf”, is claimed to be derogatory of Obama because he plays an inordinate amount of rounds of golf with the implication that he is black, also the word such as “angry” shouldn't be used to describe militant black groups, as that is a “dog whistle” word to put down blacks, and on and on. To these arbiters of speech codes, especially when it comes to race, it is not the color of a man's skin that is the problem, it is how thin it is.

Look at how many words relating to these topics that are now considered off-limits by the P.C. Police:
  • global warming if you are a “denier”
  • affirmative action if you are against it.
  • gay marriage if you believe in traditional marriage
  • labeling Muslims as terrorists even though most terrorists are Muslim.
  • complimenting women on their appearance is considered sexual harassment.
  • professing a belief in God. (God forbid!)
  • Use of words such as midget, retarded etc.

The list goes on and on, but I'm sure you get the drift of how we are losing our right to express ourselves without interference from others.

So YES, I believe that “political correctness” is the bane of our society, and the quicker we can free ourselves from its tentacles the better off we all will be.

The Moral Collapse

According to Obama, Clinton, and liberals the cause of the indiscriminate killings we have seen is because guns are too easy to get.  However, in my opinion the real reason for these latest events is the moral collapse we have witnessed throughout the world and in this country.

Nowadays, according to the liberals, there are no moral truths; everything is relative.  Individual responsibility is gone.  Instead, liberals blame everything on society, the establishment – whatever that is – and, of course, racism.  The Judea-Christian creed at one time was considered the norm – not something that is now scorned at or made fun of by the Hollywood liberals.   Liberals have taken God and the Judea-Christian creed out of school, out of government, and out of everyday life.  Instead we have a bunch of principles that are based on whatever the latest humanitarian system of beliefs is.  It is ironic that these liberals are so opposed to the Judaic-Christian background of our country and yet are tolerant of the narrow Islamic philosophy.  I guess that’s the “logic” of liberals.

I recall when I was a child growing up in Queens, NY that things were a lot different.  Back in those days the police were respected, school was a place you went to get an education, and people respected each other.  Drugs were something you took when you were sick and you considered yourself daring if you sneaked a smoke or had a beer!  Not everything was great.  African-Americans faced discrimination and in many parts of the country anyone with a “foreign sounding” name may have been treated less favorably.  However, there was a basic respect for doing the right thing and treating each other in a fair manner.  Abortion was not considered a form of birth control and nobody in their right mind would consider it acceptable to market unborn baby parts.  The family was considered an integral part of society.  Patriotism was considered the norm.

My father was born in a foreign country.  He came to this country – what he called the land of opportunity – worked hard and considered the U.S. the greatest country in the world.  He came to this country with less than a high school education.  However, he believed in hard work and putting his God-given talents to use.  He never asked for a handout.  Rather, through hard work and perseverance he became a successful business man.  There may have been times when “Americans” may have made fun of him because of his accent.  However, he used such comments as an incentive to succeed and succeed he did.  
But, boy have things changed.

·         Mass school shootings have become all too common.

·         New born babies are thrown in dumpsters.

·         Abortion has become an acceptable form of birth control.  The sale of baby parts is defended. 

·         Over 170,000 Christians have been murdered by ISIS because they will not renounce their faith.

·         Police are shot at and killed because they are police.

·         A politician is chastised for saying “all lives matter” not just Black lives. 

·         Recently in Syria a child had his fingers cut off and he was subsequently murdered because his father became a Christian.  At the same time his mother and 11 other women were raped and then murdered by ISIS for the same “offense.”

·         Cities in defiance of federal law offer unlawful immigrants immunity and, in fact, provide them more assistance than they do to their own citizens.

·         Welfare is considered a right.  Many people are on the dole for their entire life without the need to work. 

·         Drug use is rampart and marijuana is considered no more harmful than a cup of coffee.

·         The family unit has collapsed. Today 72.2% of African-American babies are born out of wedlock.  The figure for Hispanics is 53.5% and for whites it is 29.4%.  In 1949 the figure for all out of wedlock births was only 3.7%.

Yes, things were a lot different in the good old days.  It was when the Judaic-Christian creed was thrown out that society changed for the worse.  When individual responsibility is abolished and excuses for bad behavior are the norm, society suffers.  

So, don't blame guns for what has happened in this country.  It is the result of a moral collapse.

MORT’s meanderings

Rocks & Shoals.   
I was introduced to ‘Rocks & Shoals’ during my U.S. Navy Boot Camp training in Memphis, TN in 1944. That was the informal name for the, ‘Articles for the Government of the U. S. Navy’.  Portions were to be  read to ‘all hands’, once a month in order that every sailor should become acutely aware that there was, ‘The Navy way – and no other way’. That specific education in addition to The Blue Jackets Manual combined to be ‘The Book’ a sailor lived by.  If you unfailingly ‘Went by the Book’, chances were pretty good that you could get through the day without becoming entangled in any serious trouble.
When I was in training as an Aviation Ordnanceman  / Combat Aircrewman (top- turret gunner), we were required to ‘Volunteer’ at the beginning of each new phase of that specialized training.  That meant, reciting and swearing to an Oath of Allegiance specifically relating to the nature of the information and training we would be receiving in order to carry out all future orders to fight our nations’ enemies and to protect & defend our citizens and our homeland.  We were never in doubt as to the seriousness of the charge we were given and had accepted as members of the U.S. Military in service to the United States of America.
It seems to me that many Members of the U. S. Congress, The Supreme Court, the President and his entire Administration - and even some elected officials elsewhere in the Federal Government complex throughout this country and all across the Globe, need to remind themselves periodically (like at least, once a month) of the Oath they swore to, that of ‘Protecting & Defending’ the Constitution of the United States, precisely as we did during WWII.  Surely, these busy people, these loyal servants of the people, can spare a few moments each month from their busy, busy schedules – to reiterate swearing of their ‘Oath’ to that sacred document gifted to all future citizens of this nation by the genius of our Founding Fathers.    Couldn’t hurt; might help!
