“I got into the labor movement not because I wanted to negotiate wages. I got into the labor movement because I saw it as a vehicle to do massive social change to … reach out and start building permanent coalitions with young workers groups, with student groups, with religious groups, anybody that’s a progressive group …”—Richard Trumka, September 2010

Trumka admits that he didn’t get involved in the labor movement because he wanted to negotiate better wages for workers; he got involved because he wanted to use the labor union as a vehicle for massive social change.

To facilitate social change is also why most of America’s “journalists” and public school “teachers” entered their respective occupations. They did not become “journalists” to objectively report news or “teachers” to impart information and train minds how to think; they entered their occupations to promote progressive ideas and facilitate social change.

In the video clip below, two women discuss a Saudi study that found nearly one quarter of Saudi children have been raped and almost half of the students in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, are homosexuals.  The clip was translated from a December 2008 Youtube clip that was taken from the program “Misawa,” which aired on the Arabic-language satellite station “al-Hurra.”

The full transcript of the women’s discussion follows:

Guest:  More than 23% of children in Saudi society have been raped.

Host:  So about a quarter of Saudi children have been …

Guest:  About a quarter of Saudi children have been raped. Sixty-two percent of those people …  

Host:  Those children.

Guest:  No, I’m sorry, the study was directed at university students. Twenty-three percent had been raped during their childhood. For 62% of those, the rape was never reported. This was because it was one of the victim’s relatives. In the study, it was mentioned that more than 16% of the rapists were relatives, specifically 5% were siblings, 2% were teachers, and 1% were parents. In another study, which was conducted by Dr. In’am (al-Rabu’i), who is the president of children’s studies at the Armed Forces Hospital in Jeddah, she mentioned, or warned, that in the coming years we will suffer as a society from extremely widespread cases of homosexuality. The reason for this is the increase in the cases of sexual assault of children (brought) to the hospital, as well as the societal violence inflicted on children. She also mentioned that the hospital had on average three sexual assault cases per week.

Host:  How large of an area did the study cover?

Guest:  I don’t know, this is just what she mentioned on behalf of the Saudi nation. It was published on behalf of the nation, and can be considered very reliable. In addition to that, there is a study from the Office of Societal Supervision, which is also very serious. This study reported that 46% of students in the city of Riyadh suffer from homosexuality. Twenty-five percent of students in Jeddah suffer from homosexuality. We must be aware of this in order to combat these numbers quickly. The society has become fragmented. When we have a percentage of students—children or teenagers—who are gay, this is a catastrophe, a true catastrophe. I mean, we don’t have a strong society. We should really look at this more seriously.

Host:  This is a new thing in Saudi Arabia for newspapers to write articles on this subject. The studies which you mentioned, are they saying this is something new?

Guest:  No, it’s not new.

Obama Needs another Term to Make His Father’s Dreams Come True

By Jerry A. Kane

Before Adolf Hitler ascended to power in Germany, he revealed his worldview and political intentions for Germany in his autobiography Mein Kampf. He titled the book Four Years of Struggle against Lies, Stupidity, and Cowardice, but the publisher revised it to My Struggle.

Before assuming the presidency, Barack Obama has also revealed his worldview and political intentions for America in his autobiography titled Dreams from My Father.

In the 14:10 video below, Dinesh D’Souze addresses the 2012 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). D’Souze claims that Obama is not a traditional “redistributionist” Democrat. His dreams are not the Founders’ dream of individual liberty or Martin Luther King’s dream of racial equality. Obama’s dreams are the dreams of an anticolonialist father.

Anticolonialism divides the world between the oppressed and the oppressors.  According to anticolonialism, the West and America are the oppressors that have invaded, occupied, and looted the poor, oppressed countries in Asia, Africa, and South America.

Like his father, Obama believes that America must be made to atone for its sins by the power of the state. The desire to downsize America and punish it for the sins of colonialism is what drives Obama to remove the bust of Winston Churchill from the Oval office, to remake the space agency into an international outreach agency for Muslims, and to block oil drilling in the United States while subsidizing it in Brazil and Columbia, and encouraging it in Mexico.

Obama looks at the multiple uprisings in Middle Eastern Muslim countries and uses force to oust the dictator Muammar Gaddafi for killing a couple hundred people in Lybia, but he doesn’t use the same force to remove Syria’s dictator for killing several thousand people in Syria. He orders the military to rid Egypt of Hosni Mubarak, a friend and ally of the United States, yet he won’t lift a finger to help the Iranian people overthrow one of the most anti-American governments in history.

The Kenyan, anti-colonial dreams Obama got from his father are the “most accurate, predictive model for his behavior.” But he needs “another term to finish the job” and make the dreams from his father come true. And what’s so inexplicable is that the American people just might give it to him.  

‘Tis the times’ plague, when madmen lead the blind.

Girl Brain-Dead from Taser Incident

By Jerry A. Kane

In the :48 video below, 267-pound Trooper Daniel Cole tases a 100 pound, 20-year-old handcuffed girl in the back as she tries to flee. Danielle Maudsley suffered severe brain damage from the September 2011 taser incident and has been in a vegetative state ever since.

Cole arrested Maudsley for allegedly leaving the scene of two traffic accidents and driving with a suspended license. He took her to a Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) substation and was completing paperwork before taking her to the Pinellas County Jail when she bolted out the door in handcuffs.

Cole chased her out into a parking lot and fired his taser into her back. Maudsley spun around and fell backwards, her head slamming down hard against the concrete pavement. Maudsley cried and tried to get up and about two minutes later lost consciousness. She has remained unconscious ever since.

Tell me that’s not excessive force. … He couldn’t reach out and grab her? He was an arm’s length away.”—Cheryl Maudsley, girl’s mother

According to a report by the Office of Inspector General Investigation Unit, Maudsley was found to have cocaine and oxycodone in her system at the time.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement conducted an independent review of the incident and determined Cole’s actions “were legal and within the scope of his duties” and cleared him of wrongdoing.

Maudsley’s defense attorney said that Cole’s use of the taser violated FHP policy.  

Fleeing cannot be the sole reason for the deployment. When you shoot someone in the back, and they’re running away, all that force — as you saw when Danielle’s head hit the concrete — that’s why they don’t allow you to do that, because you can have horrible tragedies like this.”—Kevin Haylsett

In the report Cole said that he used the taser because he “felt she was more susceptible to being injured if he attempted to tackle her.”

Doctors told Cheryl Maudsley that her daughter will likely remain in a vegetative state. Maudsley is currently at the Ft. Lauderdale rehab center.

A policeman’s job is only easy in a police state.”

Grand Ole Opry star Roy Clark sang “Yesterday When I Was Young” at Mickey Mantle’s funeral in 1995. Mantle identified with the song so much that he made Clark promise to sing it at his funeral.

“That’s my life,” Mantle said.

Although songs about a self-absorbed man who has wasted his life on foolish pleasures are not usually sung at funerals, Clark honored his promise to his friend. Southern writer Ronda Rich remembered Mantle’s funeral:

It was powerful. I watched on television and was chilled by that one moment. I’ve never been more haunted by a song at someone’s funeral.”

For Mantle, the song’s lyrics conveyed his regrets for having lived such a reckless, self-indulgent life:

Yesterday When I Was Young” 

Seems the love I’ve known has always been

the most destructive kind

Yes, that’s why now I feel so old

before my time.

 

Yesterday when I was young

the taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue.

I teased at life as if it were a foolish game,

the way the evening breeze may tease a candle flame.

The thousand dreams I dreamed, the splendid things I planned

I always built to last on weak and shifting sand.

I lived by night and shunned the naked light of the day

and only now I see how the years ran away.

 

Yesterday when I was young

so many happy songs were waiting to be sung,

so many wild pleasures lay in store for me

and so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see.

I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out,

I never stopped to think what life was all about

and every conversation I can now recall

concerned itself with me and nothing else at all.

 

Yesterday the moon was blue

and every crazy day brought something new to do.

I used my magic age as if it were a wand

and never saw the waste and emptiness beyond.

The game of love I played with arrogance and pride

and every flame I lit too quickly, quickly died.

The friends I made all seemed somehow to drift away

and only I am left on stage to end the play.

 

There are so many songs in me that won’t be sung,

I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue.

The time has come for me to pay for

yesterday when I was young…

In the 12:21 video below, Ezra Levant of Canada’s Sun News Network makes a convincing case that Barack Obama shut down the Keystone XL Pipeline to benefit Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez.

“[T]he Keystone XL Pipeline was a very specific challenge to one of OPEC’s bullies, a direct substitute for Venezuelan oil. Obama made a decision. Who does Obama want to get his oil from, Canada or Venezuela? Well, he chose Venezuela by saying “no” to the Keystone XL Pipeline. …

Obama treats his friends like his enemies, and he treats his enemies like his friends. And now he’s just made a decision to give Venezuela unfettered access to the US oil markets for the unforeseeable future.”

The current approval rating of Congress is at 10 percent, which is a record low, lower than when Nancy Pelosi welded the gavel or Richard Nixon’s worst day during Watergate.

The following Aesop fable is for those Republicans and their leaders in the House and Senate who reneged on their 2010 promises and betrayed the trust of the voters who elected them in order to win Democrat friends, media approval, and voter respect for bipartisanship.  

The Man, His Boy, and the Donkey

A Man and his son were once going with their Donkey to market. As they were walking along by its side a countryman passed them and said: “You fools, what is a Donkey for but to ride upon?”

So the Man put the Boy on the Donkey and they went on their way. But soon they passed a group of men, one of whom said: “See that lazy youngster, he lets his father walk while he rides.”

So the Man ordered his Boy to get off, and got on himself. But they hadn’t gone far when they passed two women, one of whom said to the other: “Shame on that lazy lout to let his poor little son trudge along.”

Well, the Man didn’t know what to do, but at last he took his Boy up before him on the Donkey. By this time they had come to the town, and the passers-by began to jeer and point at them. The Man stopped and asked what they were scoffing at. The men said: “Aren’t you ashamed of yourself for overloading that poor Donkey of yours—you and your hulking son?”

The Man and Boy got off and tried to think what to do. They thought and they thought, till at last they cut down a pole, tied the Donkey’s feet to it, and raised the pole and the Donkey to their shoulders.

They went along amid the laughter of all who met them till they came to Market Bridge, when the Donkey, getting one of his feet loose, kicked out and caused the Boy to drop his end of the pole. In the struggle the Donkey fell over the bridge, and his fore-feet being tied together he was drowned.

“That will teach you,” said an old man who had followed them. “Please all, and you will please none.”
