Freedom of speech and association and the free flow of ideas and information have always threatened tyrants.  To rule, they must control speech.

“There’s a little bug inside of me which wants to get the FCC to say to FOX and to MSNBC: ‘Out. Off. End. Goodbye.’ It would be a big favor to political discourse; our ability to do our work here in Congress, and to the American people, to be able to talk with each other and have some faith in their government and more importantly, in their future.”—Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV):

That little bug must have also been bothering Rockefeller during last year’s confirmation hearing of Gary Locke for Commerce Secretary when he asked, “would it have been better if we had never invented the Internet?”

Rockefeller’s bug brings to mind the 1983 film Terms of Endearment and the exchange between Garrett Breedlove, played by Jack Nicholson, and Aurora Greenway, played by Shirley Maclaine:

Garrett Breedlove:  You’re just going to have to trust me about this one thing. You need a lot of drinks.

Aurora Greenway:  To break the ice?

Garrett Breedlove:  To kill the bug that you have up your ass.

Of course if the pride of West Virginia is too busy rulin’ and regulatin’ to visit a local pub, perhaps a constituent ought to give him a swig or two from the white lightning jug to do the trick.

It looks like Amazon.com has pulled one its stocking stuffers after receiving thousands of angry comments and threats of boycotts. Until last Wednesday, Amazon had been selling the self-published e-book The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover’s Code of Conduct by Philip R. Greaves II.

“Amazon believes it is censorship not to sell certain books simply because we or others believe their message is objectionable. Amazon does not support or promote hatred or criminal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions.”—Amazon.com

Greaves, the Mr. Lonelyhearts of anxious childmolesters, offers guidelines for pedophiles “to make pedophile situations safer” for the children involved with them.

“I hope to achieve this by appealing to the better nature of pedosexuals, with hope that their doing so will result in less hatred and perhaps liter [sic] sentences should they ever be caught.”—Philip R. Greaves II

Greaves said that he published the book to tackle the media’s unfair portrayals of pedophiles. According to Greaves, “True pedophiles love children and would never hurt them.”

The 47-year-old claims he has not had sexual contact with a child as an adult, but did as a teenager. Greaves added that an older female had first introduced him to oral sex when he was seven years old.

Although Amazon defended selling the book, company spokesman Drew Herdener refused to address the controversy or respond to questions about company’s vetting process for its digital publications.

Based on the illegal standard used to count Alaska’s write-in votes, it looks like Lisa Murkowski and the state’s GOP establishment have taken pointers from the Democrat playbook and are about to steal the election for the U.S. Senate. (See the 2008 Minnesota Senate Race starring George Soros and Stewart Smiley as Democrat candidate Al Frankin)

Division of Elections Director Gail Fenumiai and Lt. Governor Craig Campbell have instructed election officials to accept misspelled votes for Murkowski even though the law states that misspelled votes “may not be counted.” Fenumiai and Campbell have ordered election officials to determine the “voter intent” for each ballot cast. (See the Bush-Gore 2000 presidential race and Florida’s hanging, dimpled, and pregnant chads.)

According to a preliminary injunction filed by Thomas Van Flein, Joe Miller’s attorney, some Alaskan voters had mentioned on radio stations, in blogs, and in newspaper stories that they intended to write in variantions of Murkowski’s name as a protest vote because Murkowski failed to keep her word and abide by the electorate’s decision in the Republican primiary.

However, the counting boards have awarded Murkowski protest votes that included names such as “Mercowshit” and “Fuckowski” on the grounds that two syllables of her last name were phonetically correct.

What’s more, allegations of vote-padding and ballot-stuffing abound:

“[S]worn affidavits from eyewitnesses in Alaska [have testified] that ballot boxes were stuffed with “hundreds”of ballots; that write-in ballots from the Native Alaskan villages of Cordova and Angoon were all written by the same person; that a Fairbanks ballot box was easily accessible and prime for voter fraud; and that major employers intimidated workers by driving them to the polls and giving them Murkowski campaign items to take inside the voting booth. Earlier, secret cameras caught federal contractors encouraging their employees to vote for Lisa Murkowski.”—Ben Johnson

America at the Point of No Return

By Jerry A. Kane

Too many Americans are unaware that the repeal of the U.S. military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) policy is the tipping point and the point of no return for religious freedom and traditional normalcy in America. Once DADT is repealed, Americans will be required to positively affirm and accept homosexuality as legitimate sexual behavior; and their First Amendment right to freedom of religion and the free exercise thereof will be abolished by anti-discrimination laws protecting sexual preference or sexual orientation.

In the preface of Aldous Huxley’s popular dystopian novel Brave New World, Huxley accurately predicts the demise and inexorable enslavement of an American society preoccupied with instant gratification and satiating its sexual appetite.

“As political and economic freedom diminishes, sexual freedom tends to compensatingly increase. And the dictator … will do well to encourage that freedom. In conjunction with the freedom to daydream under the influence of dope and movies and the radio, it will help to reconcile his subjects to the servitude which is their fate.”—Aldous Huxley

Huxley’s negative utopian novel was meant to be a parody of the popular optimistic utopian novels of the time and a warning to rationalists and civil libertarians to oppose the hedonist, nihilist culture being created by socialist engineers to diminish political freedom and economic liberty.

In George Orwell’s 1984 dystopian society, the socialist Party benefactors manage the culture by invoking fear and inflicting pain on the masses; conversely, Huxley’s social engineers manage their culture by invoking desire and inflicting pleasure on the masses. The inhabitants of Huxley’s brave new world are obsessed with pleasurable entertainment to excess, but are sorely lacking in self-respect, civility, common decency, moral conscience, and social constraint.

Huxley understood that to pursue pleasure at the expense of personal responsibility would lead to decadence, and decadence would lead to destruction. For a society to withstand tyranny, it needs a fixed moral compass and strong nuclear families. However, when a society acquiesces to hedonistic pleasures and lifestyle luxuries and abandons its traditions of morality and family cohesiveness, it succumbs cheerfully to tyranny, or as Huxley envisioned, a tyrannical World State.

The electorate’s failure to oust Senate Democrats, which allows them to maintain power in two of the three branches of government, indicates that Americans in some states have abandoned self-government for an elitist shadow government. Leading up to the election, leftists brazenly carried out their progressive agenda before an uneducated, laughing public that didn’t know why it was laughing or that it stopped thinking.

Americans will continue to undergo a metamorphosis in their social attitudes toward homosexuals. The mass media will continue to depict homosexuals in the most favorable light possible until the Biblical and traditional injunctions against homosexuality have been superseded by a new set of social norms and mores.

Unfortunately, only a few Americans have “seriously thought through the implications of open homosexuality in the U.S. military and what it means for the rights of religious believers and cultural traditionalists.”

Leftist Democrats don’t need to implement a fairness doctrine to push for public recognition and approval of the homosexual lifestyle on talk radio; the guests and personalities have been carrying the water for them. The most influential political figures on talk radio, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Sean Hannity, seldom, if ever, discuss the special rights and privileges afforded homosexuals or the health issues connected with the homosexual lifestyle.

America’s cultural elites have corrupted the mass media, psychiatry, science, and academia to establish homosexuality as a normal and acceptable variant of human sexuality. America’s elites have used their power and positions to promote the notion that being homosexual is as genetic as being left handed or having red hair.

As society’s moral arbiters and protectors of homosexuals, the elites have colluded with the mass media to promote homosexuals as victims in need of protection. And of course, homosexuals are neither.

The following list suggests some possible cultural repercussions if DADT is repealed:

  • The traditional definition and understanding of marriage would be outlawed and the underlying concept of marriage would be redefined,
  • Clergy and people of conscience would be fined and imprisoned for teaching and promoting their faith,
  • Americans would lose their First Amendment protections due to anti-discrimination and equal opportunity laws,
  • Churches would be forced to incorporate revisionist theology when teaching about homosexuality,
  • Pro-homosexual courses and materials would be mandated for kindergarten,
  • Teachers would be forced to advance the genetically determined “once gay, always gay” propaganda,
  • Public school students would be taught that sexual orientation is fluid, not fixed, and encouraged to explore their sexuality, and
  • Employers and employees would be forced to offer or attend “diversity training” and “sexual-orientation” courses.

Repeal of the military’s DADT policy will transform America from a family-oriented society of sisters and brothers and parents and children, into a hedonist society of aimless predators and alienated prey.

During a visit to Gedney Park last month, Democrat Councilman Michael Wolfensohn witnessed Andrew DeMarchis and Kevin Graff selling cupcakes, cookies, brownies, and Rice Krispie treats for a buck a piece. With no regard for his own safety, the daring Democrat confronted the two bake sale ruffians to find out if they were motivated by charity or greedy self-interest.

After determining the Chappaqua youths were nothing but Gordon Gekko wannabes, the New Castle Democrat deduced the selfish shysters were in fact vendors conducting a bake sale on town property without a license. To uphold the dignity of his elected office, the Town Board crusader reported the infraction to the police and filed a complaint.

The unassuming public servant’s heroics would have escaped public notice had not The Journal News filed a Freedom of Information Law request for the police report and discovered that Wolfensohn had made the complaint against the boys.

Wolfensohn admitted that he could have simply told the boys that they needed a license, but he chose instead to call the cops because “The police are trained to deal with these sorts of issues.”

Surprisingly, the media outlets reporting on the story left out Wolfensohn’s party affiliation. To give Democrats their due, additional research was necessary to determine that Wolfensohn was elected councilman in 2007 as a member of the Democrat Party.

Funded by U.S. taxpayers through USAID, Planned Parenthood in Europe is distributing a graphic sex-guide advocating casual sex with multiple partners as well as oral, anal, and homosexual sex among Russian teens aged 13-19.

The world’s leading abortion provider has been using millions of U.S. tax dollars to promote Healthy Russia 2020, an HIV/AIDS prevention and contraception program aimed at Russian teens and other vulnerable populations.

“Nearly $77 million in US taxpayer dollars went to programs in Russia in 2008 …  Part of this $77 million enabled family planning and reproductive health messages to reach more than 25,000 Russians.”—Seana Cranston

The taxpayer-funded sex-guide brochure titled “Healthy, Happy and Hot” urges teens to keep their sexual activity secret from their parents and, in the case of an unwelcome pregnancy, to seek out the nearest family planning center “where you can go without needing the permission of your parents or guardians.”

The extremely graphic brochure has been translated into Russian as a guide for teens on the glories of aggressive sex. Russia currently has the second-highest rate of HIV in Eastern Europe and Eurasia.

The superintendent at Denair Middle School in Denair, California, told 13-year-old Cody Alicea to remove the American flag from his bicycle while he’s on school property. For over two months, the boy has been riding to school with an American flag attached to the back of his bike to show his patriotism and respect for veterans like his grandfather.

“In this country we’re supposed to be free. And I should be able to wave my flag wherever I want to. And they’re telling me I can’t.”—Cody Alicea

Some students complained and the superintendent decided that the flag on the boy’s bicycle might stoke racial tensions or uprisings and put student safety at risk on campus as it did during Cinco de Mayo.

“Our Hispanic, you know, kids will, you know, bring their Mexican flags and they’ll display it, and then of course the kids would do the American flag situation, and it does cause kind of a racial tension which we don’t really want. We want them to appreciate the cultures.”—Edward Parraz, Denair Middle School Superintendent

In twenty-first century America, children are kept from showing their love of country, honor of veterans, and respect for the American flag for fear of stirring up racial hatred.

Who will raise the battle cry of freedom at such an outrage? Oh, wait a minute … it’s California … never mind.

 The Battle Cry of Freedom

Yes, we’ll rally round the flag, boys,

We’ll rally once again,

Shouting the battle cry of Freedom,

We will rally from the hillside,

We’ll gather from the plain,

Shouting the battle cry of Freedom.

CHORUS:

The Union forever, Hurrah! boys, hurrah!

Down with the traitors, Up with the stars;

While we rally round the flag, boys,

Rally once again, Shouting the battle cry of Freedom.

We are springing to the call

Of our brothers gone before,

Shouting the Battle Cry of Freedom.

And we’ll fill the vacant ranks

With a million freemen more,

Shouting the Battle Cry of Freedom!

CHORUS

We are marching to the field, boys,

We’re going to the fight,

Shouting the Battle Cry of Freedom,

And we bear the glorious stars

For the Union and the right,

Shouting the Battle Cry of Freedom.
