Epitaph to Conservatism

Epitaph to Conservatism


Unnoticed by most and minimally commented upon by the media conservatism died in 2014. There were no parades, gatherings or events to commemorate its passing. Republican’s landslide at the polls in November did little to deter conservatism’s final defeat. Recent events in Washington solidified the liberal agenda enabled by Republican leadership and finalized by Barack Obama.  Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, provided the left, with a budget fraught goodies on their wish list. Fully funding Obamacare and amnesty for illegals one wonders who these people are working for. Congressional leadership, empowered to contain Obama’s policies, took the path of least resistance providing the President with the finances to continue ravaging the Constitution. More youthful members of the right vehemently protested Boehner’s caving to Obama’s demands, yet most supported the Speaker so they could stealthily leave town for the holidays. Conservative principles and ideas are an anathema to those who believe government should support and control each and every resident on the American landscape. Successfully squelching Republican dogma from the last presidential election cycle through now Obama moves into the future knowing he can do what he wants uninhibited by those on the other side of the aisle. Senate reconvenes in early January with a Republican majority and Harry Reid diminished to a secondary role. Reflecting on Mitch McConnell’s recent actions this Senate Majority leader to be has his mind entrenched in old boy politics instead of what is best for the nation. Newer blood is needed in the role McConnell plans to tackle to resurrect the platform which led to the Democrats defeat less than 2 months ago. Conservatism dictates constraints on spending, smart policies to grow the economy and a view of the World placing America first. These considerations have been forgotten by the bellwethers of a party whose present governing style is a reflection of a majority they will replace. Expect very little change in the next two years. Republicans’ failure to challenge Obama at his doorstep will lead to him being replaced by a clone not a conservative. Perhaps the American public has been manipulated by backdoor politics and collusion between the major parties to keep the country mired in the weaknesses Obama has generated for the nation. From this perch anything is possible by a government with 18 trillion in debt, out of control spending and Congressional members who come poor to Washington and leave millionaires. One thing for certain the nation is being placed on the road to another Clinton in the White House. This will occur in the event conservatism does not reemerge as a force to drown the collective liberal mentality seen in most recent times. Stay tuned.

Exodus: A Movie Lost in the Wilderness

     Radically different than prior versions of this story Exodus brings great shame to a magnificent biblical saga. Scripted to deviate from prior incarnations Exodus wanders through a series of sequences looking for a story that never develops. With horrible acting and  poorly designed back lot sets the audience is degraded as the movie unfolds. Christian Bale should have remained with the Batman series instead of sullying himself with this dreck of a film. John Turturro plays Seti, ruler of Egypt and beyond. He should have stayed in Brooklyn making bagels in Transformers. God has been diminished to a tertiary  role, which will make all atheist viewers happy. To reveal these sequences would spoil a film that spoils itself. As the cast moves from scene to scene the thousands of extras appear disconnected from the director's cues. For biblical purists I am still searching for a scene that comes near one event as originally told in this great work. Charlton Heston, the renown Moses of the 1050s, would have laughed off this script if offered to him. In a sense we have one of the best biblical tales treated to some of the worst Hollywood has to offer. My vote of 5 out of 10 is stated not to offend the acting of the mass numbers of extras. At nearly 2 hours and 30 minutes this film is 2 hours and 30 minutes too long.

Congress Dances to Obama's Tune

Congress dances to Obama’s tune


Did you believe the Republican landslide would effectuate policy changes in Washington, then take a peek at the proposed federal spending bill. Obama wins this round. Voters will be disenfranchised to know they are paying for an array of goodies not accessible to 99% of the population. Hollywood giveaways alone may run into the hundreds of millions from direct subsidies to major tax breaks. Race a car or ride a horse in competition, Congress has not forgotten you. Do you remember the Republicans admonishing Obama for his health plan. The proposed budget fully funds its operations. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) would receive $6.9 billion, which is an increase of approximately 40 million from the previous year. The questions are what diseases have they controlled and where is this huge sum spent? You may wonder why a separate allocation of $5.4 billion is being extracted from the America taxpayer for Ebola. That would be a half billion for each Ebola patient treated in the United States so far. Egypt is receiving over 1.3 billion in military aid and more in direct economic grants. Is Obama arming their country for the final assault on Israel? For security at U.S. embassies $5.4 billion would be allotted equivalent to the cash layout for Ebola. Some good news the Environmental Protection Agency will have its budget trimmed by $60 million down to $8.1 billion. This agency’s funds have been steadily trimmed since 2010. EPA puts people out of work and stifles industrial progression, nothing more. The Internal Revenue Service has their funds reduced by $345.6 million.  Billions of cuts would have been more appropriate for an agency that wreaks havoc on the masses. Another unimportant government agency which does little but spend money is the Education Department. Their funding was trimmed slightly to $70.5 billion. Since they do not directly educate anyone who are the beneficiaries of these funds? Many agencies involved with day to day dynamics of government function were funded at levels near those requested. The budget has not been cemented yet so these amounts may change. There is no doubt these proposed numbers will metamorphose as the infighting begins between the parties. The question I have is why can’t budget wrangling wait until the new Congress is seated?

Racial Politics: A Divide to Overcome

Racial politics: a divide to overcome


Racism is a tool used by government and profiteers to keep people at odds with each other. Michael Brown and Travon Martin exemplify cases which were magnets to some who use race to enhance their bank accounts and prestige. As a result of their efforts in these cases violent protests occurred, causing property loss and worse life for a few individuals. Most active in this group are Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, Eric Holder and our Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama. This cabal of despicable individuals have long track records utilizing derision, diversion, demagoguery and outright hate to inflame populations in order to achieve specific outcomes. Their success can be measured by the crowd’s protean actions which violated innocent communities where these protests erupted.


Few would argue against the proposition that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is no longer managed for the good of the collective population. Eric Holder, as U.S. Attorney General, has taken his department in a direction which finds racism where none exists. Holder’s office actually paid a group to instigate protests in Florida against George Zimmerman. Our tax dollars went for race baiting, supplemented with speeches by Holder, that were tinged with racial comments.  More recently extensive racial hatreds were generated in Ferguson and across the country by the aforementioned group of race hustlers. They successful mythicized the actions of Michael Brown, enhanced by the left wing media, pumping hate we visualized for several nights across our video screens. Crowds crying for justice were misled into believing Brown was an innocent bystander killed by a rogue cop. A Grand Jury investigated a series of allegations perpetrated by those who wanted to lynch a white police officer. Evidence in the final review deflated the Brown myth and displayed a police officer who was doing his job. Yet the race baiters would not let go as the facts emerged to squelch their politically charged rhetoric.


Oprah Winfrey stated that older white people must die for racism to cease. I take a different view. Words such as racism and racist are utilized to a large extent by those who have the most to gain from their expression. These are the people that need to be removed from the map to extinguish racial hatreds. Oprah has shown herself to be one of the greatest race manipulators in the history of this country. Her movies, speeches and media venues collectively use race to keep her presence fresh in the American mind. Younger generations will be able to move away from the racial divide when modern day evangelists of hate, like Oprah, discontinue their emotionally charged verbiage or die off. Until then society will continue to be mentally and physically segregated.
