Congress Votes to Outsource Presidency

Old, but funny

Happy May Day: A hundred million people were murdered by Marxist dictators in the 20th century

That basic truth cannot be repeated often enough. That figure comes from left-wing historians in France. If you thought totalitarianism would fade away after the Cold War, think again. North Korea keeps concentration camps for 200,000 people, according to recent satellite photos. The moral difference among Hitler, Stalin, and the Kims is zilch, zero, nada. There are no moral distinctions among willful mass murderers.

Liberals never seem to get that elementary point.

As Paul Johnson points out in his crucial book, Intellectuals, prominent Western professors and media heroes consciously enabled mass murder all over the Nazi-Marxist world. They still do. That is knowing, criminal collusion in murder on an unimaginable scale.

Big-name philosophers in England and France supported both Hitler and Stalin — a sort of serial mass murder-enabling racket. Paul Johnson’s book is an essential read.

But liberals everywhere are in denial about the new totalitarianism, which is exactly like the old totalitarianism.

The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression is a book authored by several European academics and edited by Stéphane Courtois, which describes a history of repressions, both political and civilian, by Communist states, including genocides, extrajudicial executions, deportations, and artificial famines. The book was originally published in 1997 in France under the title Le Livre noir du communisme: Crimes, terreur, répression by Éditions Robert Laffont. In the United States it is published by Harvard University Press.

April 30th, The Lost Holiday

A little-remembered anniversary occurs this April 30 — the 225th Anniversary of the U.S. Constitution being put into operation.

Many might remember that April 30, 1789 was the day that George Washington took the oath of office and gave his inaugural address. But lest we forget, this very act also marked the launching of the American Constitutional System.

–SNIP– Then sometime after 1 P.M., Washington gave his inaugural address, where he offered a prayer as his first official act, acknowledging our dependence on God and asking his blessing on our national endeavor.

“It would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official act my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being Who rules over the universe, Who presides in the councils of nations, and Whose providential aids can supply every human defect – that His benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the people of the United States.”

It seems that the President and the Congress had not been enlightened by the current federal judges of today and their novel doctrine of the Separation of Church and State, where the State gets to say when and where you can talk about God.

Help Re-elect Senator Ron Johnson

Dear Committed Activist,

First I want to thank each of you for all that you did to help with the Spring Election. With your help we were not only able to turn out a historic number of Republican primary voters but also elected Justice Rebecca Bradley to a full term on the Supreme Court.

We now must turn our attention to November and doing everything we can to re-elect Senator Ron Johnson. The stakes could not be higher and it is imperative that we continue to have Ron out in Washington D.C. fighting for the hardworking people of Wisconsin.

The first step in making sure that we re-elect Senator Johnson is getting him on the ballot.
I am asking that each of you collect at least 10 nomination signatures by May 20th. You can access the nomination form and instruction sheet by clicking here.

After collecting those signatures they must be mailed to RPW Headquarters in Madison:
Republican Party of Wisconsin
148 E. Johnson St.
Madison, WI 53713

Starting today, you may begin collecting signatures. This is a huge undertaking and a great opportunity to once again showcase the incredible grassroots infrastructure we have here in our state. I hope I can count on your support to not only meet, but exceed these goals, and help to keep Wisconsin moving forward.

Sincerely,
Chairman Brad Courtney

Rare Film of Ronald Reagan, James Dean Unearthed

Today, it’s an astonishing, even eerie, scene: the icon of modern American conservatism, whose rise to political prominence was galvanized by the cultural rebellion of the 1960s, fighting off an attack-at-gunpoint by the quintessential modern American rebel. But when “The Dark, Dark Hours” episode of General Electric Theater aired live from Hollywood on December 12, 1954, Ronald Reagan and James Dean were just two actors yet to find the roles that would define them.

Read the full article at The Atlantic at http://www.theatlantic.com/culture/archive/2010/04/ronald-reagan-and-james-dean-rare-video-from-1954/39238/

Reagan plays a doctor who feels threatened by Dean, a teenage criminal seeking medical help for a friend.

PC Culture Effectively Using Words as Weapons

Apparently, having a different opinion from anyone is now being translated as ‘hate speech.’ If you think the idea of having a man with his private parts still attached being allowed to use the women’s facilities is outrageous, then you hate all gays and the government needs to enact laws to protect the LGBT community. If however a state tries to protect the right for women’s privacy in the facilities, then liberal celebrities must boycott those states. All criticism of Hillary Clinton is sexism; all criticism of President Obama’s policies is proof that racism is back in America. The tea party and all Republicans are racists, anti-gay, Islamaphobic and whatever negative the mainstream media can dream up and since the nation has forgotten how to reason, those lies are accepted as truths.

In 2013, Dr. Ben Carson spoke at the Washington Prayer Breakfast and said, “PC is dangerous. In this country, one of the founding principles was freedom of thought and freedom of expression. (Political correctness) puts a muzzle on people.”
