The Democrats idea of Hope, Change & A New Kind of Politics

by Scott Ryan

The Democrat unions have given us a clear definition of what defines them.  All any sensible person needs to see is the video of these protestors to rightly conclude they are savages. Their behavior speaks volumes. There are jobless people hurting all over the country and these cretins are acting like their plight is that of early 20th century Russian peasants because they may have to pay a small percentage of their health benefits instead of the tax payer paying all of it.

They represent the lowest common denominator society has to offer and they deserve to lose their jobs and I frankly wish they would. It is mortifying to think that some people bus their beloved children off to be violated by people like this every day.

This and of course the recent death threats now being served to the Governor and legislators really buttresses the notion that the governors have are not going far enough. This is concrete proof that the state legislators should not be curtailing government unions but rather let them have their unions and just defund the public schools altogether and let private schools compete for those dollars. Then these indoctrinated ingrates can negotiate benefits for jobs at schools that no longer exist.

Following is a video I found on YouTube narrated by a young lady who did a fine job explaining her personal experience at the Wisconsin capital. It’s titled “Classy moments from the union rally”, not exactly broadcast quality but it is quite amusing; so I would recommend taking the time to view this piece.

While President and CEO of National Public Radio (NPR) Vivian Schiller was claiming that NPR receives “tremendous … criticism for being too conservative,” her senior executive at NPR was praising liberals for being “more educated, fair, and balanced than conservatives “and attacking Republicans and Tea Party members for being “seriously racist people.” No contradiction there!

The execs needn’t worry, however. NPR will continue to get tax dollars. Thanks to public education, more people now possess the power to hold two completely contradictory claims in their minds simultaneously and accept them both as true. Although NPR execs may decide to do some damage control and revise their narrative, it’s not really necessary when so many people in the country have been conditioned to believe that reality is subjective and truth is relative.

In his book, Unlimited Access: An FBI Agent Inside the Clinton White House, Gary Aldrich recounts the following exchange between FBI agent Dennis Sculimbrene and director of personnel security Craig Livingstone in the White House Security Office:

Livingstone:  “I don’t appreciate what you did for Billy Dale, Dennis. It wasn’t helpful.”

Sculimbrene:  “Craig, I just came down here to clear the air. I was subpoenaed, I was under oath; I had to tell—hell, I wanted to tell—the truth. What did you expect me to do?”

Livingstone:  “The truth, Dennis? Don’t you know that truth is relative? Your testimony was your version of the truth. Truth is whatever you want it to be.”

But not everyone in the country believes in the power of the narrative to shape reality; some stubbornly hold to the notion that reality is objective, and that “facts are facts, independent of man’s feelings, wishes, hopes or fears.”

Possible Republican candidate for president in 2012 and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has said that “two plus two must always equal four” is the most important governing slogan of the next 25 years.

“There always comes a time in history when the person who dares to say that two plus two equals four is punished with death.

And the issue is not what reward or what punishment will be the outcome of that reasoning. The issue is simply whether or not two plus two equals four.”—Albert Camus, The Plague

For progressives and Democrats two plus two equals whenever they want it to equal, and facts are important only insofar as they further the narrative.

In the 11:38 video below, National Public Radio senior executive, Ron Schiller and Betsy Liley, NPR’s director of institutional giving, meet for lunch in Georgetown at the Café Milano with two men posing as members of a Muslim Brotherhood front group and discuss federal funding, Christian fanatics, Zionists in the media, Tea Partiers, Republicans, uneducated conservatives, and Juan Williams.

RON SCHILLER:  The current Republican Party, particularly the Tea Party, is fanatically involved in people’s personal lives and very fundamental Christian — and I wouldn’t even call it Christian. It’s this weird evangelical kind of move… it’s been hijacked by this group that…

AMIR MALIK:  The radical, racist, Islamophobic, Tea Party people?

RON SCHILLER:  It’s not just Islamophobic, but really xenophobic. Basically, they believe in white, middle America, gun-toting — it’s pretty scary. They’re seriously racist, racist people. … In my personal opinion, liberals today might be more educated, fair and balanced than conservatives.”

In the 5:10 video below, Harvard history professor Niall Ferguson schools six panelists on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on how the Ruler and his Bread and Circuses Administration “blew it” in Libya.  The professor leaves the Obama apologists crestfallen, knocking down every excuse they offered up in defense of the Ruler’s decision making throughout the Egyptian crisis:

Brzezinski:  So you’re not talking about the actual execution of negotiations during the crisis. You’re talking about the lack of preparation and perhaps preemptive action.

Ferguson:  Well I think the execution during the crisis was flip followed by flop followed by flip. I mean, how many times did the president’s position change? One minute he wanted Mubarak out, the next he wanted him to be part of an orderly transition. There were at least four different people saying four different things. In fact, I came to the conclusion that the United States had two foreign policies running concurrently. If it was Monday, it was Secretary Clinton’s. If it was Tuesday, it was back to President Obama’s. It was a shambles.

Brzezinski:  But let me just challenge you on that. Niall, flip followed by flop followed by flip, to use your words, seems to have worked. Did it not?

Ferguson:  It’s worked, has it? I wish I shared your confidence. Right now, we have a six-month period of military rule. Right now, we have, as far as I can see, virtually no organization on the part of secular Democrats. The only organized opposition force in Egyptian politics right now is the Muslim Brotherhood. Now if you look closely at what the Muslim Brotherhood stands for, it is for the imposition and enforcement of Shariah law and the restoration of the Caliphate. Anybody who counts this as a major breakthrough for United States foreign policy hasn’t got a clue about what happens in the wake of a revolution like this. It is far too early to say that this is a triumph. On the contrary, the risks are extremely high. Between now and the end of the year, the Muslim Brotherhood will get into power, and then we will be staring at something comparable, in its magnitude, to 1979 in Iran.

Public sector unions are number one when it comes to spending in state elections, and 98.5 percent of that money goes to elect Democrats.

“Unions such as the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, the National Education Association and the Service Employees International Union give hundreds of millions of dollars to Democrats — some $171 million in 2010 alone. They give almost nothing to Republicans.”—Michael A. Walsh, New York Post columnist

The :34 video below gives a concise, uncomplicated explanation for why fair-minded people oppose public sector unions:

“Politicians negotiate with unions on how much taxpayer money they’ll get. Then the unions pay dues with the taxpayer money, which their leaders spend on electing Democrat politicians. They return the favor with more taxpayer dollars for unions, which means more dues to the leadership, which means more campaigning for Democrat politicians. It’s an endless loop of corruption and the endless money comes from you.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt, whose administration blazed the legal and administrative trail for modern unionism, openly opposed collective bargaining rights for public sector unions:

“The process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service. … A strike of public employees manifests nothing less than an intent on their part to prevent or obstruct the operations of Government.”—Franklin D. Roosevelt, a 1937 letter to the National Federation of Federal Employees

Wisconsin started the money laundering between public sector unions and the Democrat Party decades ago; and now that it’s come full circle, Wisconsin will once again determine the fate of this illegal activity.

In a Valentine’s Day session of the Canadian parliament discussing mandatory minimum prison sentences for child sex offenders, a psychology expert told members that pedophiles cannot change their sexual preference for children because pedophilia is a “sexual orientation” comparable to homosexuality or heterosexuality.  

“Pedophiles … are grappling with what is equivalent to a sexual orientation just like another individual may be grappling with heterosexuality or even homosexuality. True pedophiles have an exclusive preference for children, which is the same as having a sexual orientation.  You cannot change this person’s sexual orientation.”—Dr. Hubert Van Gijseghem, psychologist and retired professor at the University of Montreal

Dr. Vernon Quinsey, professor emeritus of psychology at Queen’s University, agreed with Van Gijseghem. He told members that pedophiles cannot be rehabilitated through incarceration and will go on molesting children once they are out of jail.

[Pedophiles] “prefer prepubescent children. There is no evidence that this sort of preference can be changed through treatment or through anything else.”

Labeling pedophilia as a sexual orientation rather than a mental disorder opens the door for normalization just like it did in 1973 for homosexuality. Once normalized, pedophiles will follow in the footsteps of homosexuals and use the rubric of sexual diversity to obtain social acceptance of their lifestyle and the legal right to express their “love.”

Pederasty, like homosexuality, has existed, and exists, in all societies … Men and youths have always been attracted to each other, and, like homosexuality in general, their love is irrepressible.”—David Thorstad, NAMBLA Director

Mirroring the homosexual radicals from the 1960s sexual revolution, pedophiles are organized and committed to fight the “hate and bigotry” of those who oppose their lifestyle. Their goal is to end the extreme oppression of men and boys in mutually consensual relationships by:

·       building understanding and support for such relationships;

·       educating the general public on the benevolent nature of man/boy love;

·       cooperating with lesbian, gay, feminist, and other liberation movements;

·       supporting the liberation of persons of all ages from sexual prejudice and oppression.

As this nation continues its slide into the morass of sexual diversity, the psychiatric establishment’s definition of mental illness will change and so will its values-laden concepts regarding acceptable sexual behavior.

Ildith:  Evil? How strange you are. Where I come from, nothing is evil. Everything that gives pleasure is good!

Lot:  Where do you come from?

Ildith:  There, not far, just ahead – Sodom and Gomorrah.

Managers at Disney-owned WMAL Radio in Washington, DC, have once again axed on-air talent for talking about the spread of radical Islam at home and abroad.

“WMAL … has become the first Shariah-compliant radio station in America. No criticism of radical Islam is tolerated … and neither are articulate women with opinions. WMAL’s heavy-handed tactics underscore the truth in everything the Grandys have warned us about.”—James Lafferty chairman of the Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force (VAST)

America’s first Shariah-Compliant radio station, a chief news source for the nation’s capital, showed the door to former congressman Fred Grandy and his wife, a.k.a. Mrs. Fred for continuing to discuss the threat imposed by Islamic radicals and Shariah law.

“My wife and I have used our program over the last several months to warn about the spread of radical Islam at home and abroad. Last week, Catherine (known on the show as Mrs. Fred) delivered a very tough indictment against stealth jihad, and for her efforts she was told she was off the show. I then told management without Mrs. Fred at the microphone, I could not remain either and have resigned effective this morning.”—Fred Grandy

On WMAL’s morning show, “The Grandy Group,” Grandy and his wife would interview experts on Islam and Shariah law, former FBI agents, and alternative-media members reporting on stealth operations of Muslim extremists in this country.  For daring to tell the truth about the intentions of radical jihadists and their plans to supplant the Constitution with Shariah law, management banned the outspoken Mrs. Fred from appearing on the show.

Sources close to Grandy say station management insisted Grandy nix the stories on radical Islam and “tone down” the criticism of Islamist infiltration or be fired. Grandy refused to accept management’s terms and resigned Tuesday.

Lafferty believes WMAL management forced Grandy to resign from his program because of pressure from the Council on American Islamic-Relations (CAIR), a Muslim lobbying organization dedicated to fighting “Islamophobia” in the media:

“CAIR frequently criticized Grandy for reading FBI reports and court documents on his radio show which labeled CAIR as ‘an unindicted co-conspirator’ in the federal Holy Land Foundation terror finance trial.”

CAIR Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper denies that his group had anything to do with the Grandys’ departure. However, if Lafferty is right, it would not be the first time that WMAL managers have caved to CAIR pressure and issued walking papers to their on-air talent.  

In 2005, WMAL sacked Michael Graham for speaking out against radical Islam.

“On July 25th, the Council on American-Islamic Relations demanded that I be ‘punished’ for my on-air statements regarding Islam and its tragic connections to terrorism. Three days later, 630 WMAL and ABC Radio suspended me without pay for comments deemed ‘hate radio’ by CAIR.

CAIR immediately announced that my punishment was insufficient and demanded I be fired. ABC Radio and 630 WMAL have now complied. I have now been fired for making the specific comments CAIR deemed ‘offensive,’ and for refusing to retract those statements in a management-mandated, on-air apology….I refused. And for that refusal, I have been fired.”— Michael Graham

If the terrorist-tied Council on Islamic-American Relations flexed its muscles and the ABC affiliate capitulated and succumbed to its demands, that would mean CAIR has the power in the nation’s capital to shut down debate involving radical Islam and suppress any information or opinions that it finds offensive or hateful.

Consequently, CAIR will be monitoring the information and opinions expressed over WMAL to make sure that it’s Koran-approved and Shariah-compliant for DC area listeners.

I.M. Kane

For more on the story, see Did Muslim Lobby Force Firing of Popular Radio Host? and CAIR censors another talk-radio host.

Lafferty is asking supporters of the Grandys to phone WMAL at (202) 895-2350 and (202) 686-3100 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on March 7 and March 8 and tell the managers that they “will not listen to their station until Fred and Mrs. Fred Grandy return.”

Lafferty has also called for Grandy supporters to bring signs and demonstrate March 9 outside WMAL studios at 4400 Jenifer St., NW, Washington, DC.

Last week 120 Northwestern students attended psychology professor John Michael Bailey’s optional after-class demonstration at Ryan Family Auditorium featuring a naked woman being sexually stimulated to orgasm by a “fucksaw,” i.e. a dildo attached to a reciprocating saw.

“Sticks and stones may break your bones, but watching naked people on stage doing pleasurable things will never hurt you.”—John Michael Bailey

When news of the explicit after-class event first broke, university administrators, faculty, and students supported and defended the professor’s decision to hold the demonstration:

“Northwestern University faculty members engage in teaching and research on a wide variety of topics, some of them controversial and at the leading edge of their respective disciplines. The university supports the efforts of its faculty to further the advancement of knowledge.”—Al Cubbage, University spokesman

“[The demonstration] falls within the broad range of academic freedoms—whether one approves or disapproves,”—Burgwell Howard, Dean of Students

“As a sexuality educator, I do think that demonstrations of specific arousal techniques—those definitely have educational value.”—Laura Anne Stuart, sexual health education and violence prevention coordinator (SHAPE) at University Health Services

“Personally, I probably wouldn’t want to witness that, but a student can take or not take the course. It’s their choice.”—Christine Woo, student and member of Christians on Campus

But now that word of the live sex toy demonstration has spread to the Higher Chronicle of Education and Inside Higher Ed websites and throughout cyberspace, the university’s tone has changed.

University President Morton Schapiro said that he and many others who make up the Northwestern community were “disturbed by what took place,” and he has launched an investigation:

“I feel it represented extremely poor judgment on the part of our faculty member. I simply do not believe this was appropriate, necessary or in keeping with Northwestern University’s academic mission. … I have directed that we investigate fully the specifics of this incident, and also clarify what constitutes appropriate pedagogy, both in this instance and in the future.”

But Professor Bailey remains unrepentant:

“I think that these after-class events are quite valuable. … the students find the events to be quite valuable …[and have] demonstrated that they are open-minded grownups rather than fragile children … [I]n my lecture I had talked about the attempts to silence sex research, and how this largely reflected sex negativity … I did not wish, and I do not wish, to surrender to sex negativity and fear.”

According to clinical psychologist and certified sex therapist Dr. Judy Kuriansky, Bailey has a reputation for “pushing for the envelope.”

“I don’t think it was appropriate. … This goes for … the shock value more than the educational value.”

Northwestern senior Nick Wilson disagrees. He said the professor’s after-class sex show was educational and beneficial in promoting a “sex-positive environment.”

“[I]t provided people with ‘kinky’ sexual interests with information about how to investigate their interests in a safe and respectful way. … [T]he demonstration [showed] that everybody is entitled to their own sexual desires. These desires do not have to be those of anyone else and as long as they involve only consenting adults, they are acceptable.”

Bailey’s Human Sexuality course has 567 students, which is one of the university’s largest classes. The controversial “Networking for kinky people” is only one of Bailey’s after-class presentations sponsored by the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences. His popular after-class events have also included a panel of convicted sex offenders and a question-and-answer session with swingers.

Ken Melvoin-Berg, who operated the saw for the controversial demonstration, is a guest lecturer for Bailey’s after-class presentations. The university has paid the sex tour guide and co-owner of Weird Chicago Tours hundreds of dollars for lecturing on bondage, swinging, and other sexual fetishes.

A public school teacher from Easton Area Middle School in Easton, Pennsylvania, has been charged with sexually assaulting a 7-year-old girl and possessing child pornography.

According to court documents, Steve Sullivan, a social studies teacher at the middle school, took the girl Christmas shopping in 2009 and then to his apartment to wrap the gifts. While wrapping the presents, he showed the little girl a pornographic film on his computer, and when the movie ended removed her clothing and molested her.

Detective Gary Hammer said the girl reported the abuse several weeks ago and described in detail what she had seen in the film. Police said the girl is not an Easton student, but she knows Sullivan.

Police searched Sullivan’s apartment February 17 and found files containing nude and partially-nude pictures of preteen girls. Police also confiscated several flash drives, floppy disks, and CDs.

Following his arraignment on charges of corruption of a minor, endangering the welfare of a child, unlawful contact with a minor, indecent exposure, indecent assault, and possession of child pornography, Sullivan was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation before bail can be posted.

Web comments by locals that appear below the story suggest that both parents and students had complained for years to district administrators and teachers about Sullivan, but no action was ever taken.   

When the people in this country read stories about student molestations, they find the union label. Based on recent headlines, one wonders which institution houses more sexual deviants, pederasts, and pedophiles? Teacher unions or Catholic churches?  Both draw their lion’s share of perverts, yet unlike the Catholic Church, teacher unions have been given a pass when it comes to public inquiries and criminal investigations. 

Young girl, get out of my mind

My love for you is way out of line

Better run girl,

You’re much too young girl

The leftist-leaning mainstream media characterize Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood as peaceful and moderate and treat the group’s fundamentalist religious connections and extreme ideology with kid gloves. They paint the Brotherhood to be a “relatively peaceful,” “non-violent” organization given to “charitable works.”

They willfully ignore the group’s illustrious résumé, which includes

declaring “jihad” against the U.S.

bombing the 1993 World Trade Center.

taking credit for deadly bombings in Cairo.

sponsoring Hamas.

assassinating Egyptian President Anwar Sadat.

aligning with Nazi Germany.

openly calling for shariah law.

spawning prominent al-Qaida leaders.

In 1979, two weeks after the Iranian revolution returned the Ayatollah Khomeini to Iran, Richard Falk’s New York Times op-ed “Trusting Khomeini” argued “the depiction of [Khomeini] as fanatical, reactionary and the bearer of crude prejudices seems certainly and happily false.”

Falk, a professor of international law at Princeton University and UN expert on Palestine, also claimed that Khomeini’s close advisers were actually a bunch of widely respected, moderate progressives who “shared a notable record of concern for human rights.”

Once Khomeini seized power, he proved Falk’s op-ed nothing more than willful delusion. The Ayatollah actually was an anti-Semitic Islamist fanatic, and he turned Iran’s mostly secular revolution into a brutal Islamic theocracy.

By downplaying the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic extremist ties and violent past, the leftist network news media, like their Times predecessor, are promoting a willful delusion. When the Brotherhood seizes power and imposes theocratic fascism on Egypt, ABC, NBC and CBS news organizations will have played a prominent role.

During Friday’s legislative session, Wisconsin Democrat Assemblyman Gordon Hintz walked back and pointed at Republican Assemblywoman Michelle Litjens and said, “You are fucking dead!”

“After we voted to engross the bill, the Democrats stood up; they were all screaming and hollering and throwing a fit. And Representative Hintz walked back—I sit in the back row behind all of the Democrats—and he pointed directly at me and said, ‘You are f’n dead!’”—Michelle Litjens, Wisconsin Republican Assemblywoman

Hintz phoned Monday morning and apologized to Litjens for his terroristic threat. Right now no major media outlets other than Fox News have reported on the story. They must figure Hintz’s apology sufficient and it’s time to move on.  

Just last week the three-term Oshkosh lawmaker apologized for receiving a sexual misconduct citation during a prostitution sting at the Heavenly Touch Massage Parlor in Appleton.
