THE TRUTH ABOUT TRUTH:

All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

DA DANGEROUSLY DUPED DEMOCRATS

.
Idealists are the easiest folks to dupe because they want so badly to believe that their utopian vision is attainable in “this world.” (I myself was once an idealist, but education and the wisdom that comes with age cured my illness.) Unfortunately, this also makes idealists some of the most dangerous citizens amongst us. They are just so susceptible to propaganda. And the Democrat Party (which long ago was taken over from within by Marxists and their fellow travelers) with its handmaiden, the liberal media, is unequaled when it comes to propagandizing the idealist dreamers in America.

The idealist learns just enough to recognize that the government is corrupted by Corporations and Big Buck Politicians; that it doesn’t give a rat’s patoot for the common man. And then being bombarded by sound bites from the media about how the Republican Party is dominated by these corporations and Big Buck Politicians, it’s easy to understand why most of the idealists eventually align themselves with the Democrat Party -- which likewise, but unbeknownst to the idealist, is dominated by corporations and Big Buck Politicians.

The bottom line is that, for both of the major political parties in the United States, it’s all about monopoly and the power that comes with it – the power to dictate life to the rest of society and to ensure their own station at the top of the political food chain.

The Republicans usually say the right things (with no intention of instituting the Constitutional principles they claim to embrace), and they aren’t too squeamish about being associated with success in the business world, which means a kinship with corporations and Big Buck Handlers.

The idealists, naturally, are repulsed by this and take hook, line and sinker the bait that the Marxists masquerading as “Democrats fighting for the little guy” have set for them. The next thing you know, the idealists are standing shoulder to shoulder against the Republicans, in lockstep with the Democrat Party, and are unwittingly destroying everything that once made America great.

In putting together my last Blog Bit here at Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends, I reflected upon three quotes that were called to mind and I thought that they really ought to be more widely known by the American public. And so, I give you three quotes pertaining to da dangerously duped Democrats:
.
[Quoting from the December 1937 issue of the ‘Communist International’:] . . .
“The Chinese Communist Party is guided by the new line of tactics of the Seventh Congress of the Comintern, and the historic report made by Comrade Dimitrov.”

This historical report, I should here explain, was the one in which Dimitrov laid down the trojan horse tactic for Communists everywhere in the world. They were instructed at this Comintern Congress to get influence inside the liberal movements everywhere by pretending to be democrats in order to destroy the non-Communist world from within.
~ Senator Joseph McCarthy
From The Congressional Record
1950, March 30th

Our task is to build an all-people’s front… with special emphasis on mobilization of the working class and the trade union movement on all levels, but especially the grass roots. … This front must include Americans who are racially oppressed and discriminated against because of their nationality, the professionals, intellectuals, farmers, youth, women, senior citizens, small and medium-size business people… a mass wave that will mainly express itself through the Democratic Party…
~ Gus Hall
Head of the Communist Party U.S.A.
1981, December

What America has most to fear is not the Communists either at home or abroad, but our own good-hearted, well-meaning fellow citizens of the liberal persuasion, whose unintended effect has been to sap the survival powers of free societies everywhere.
~ William Rusher
Former Special Counsel to the Internal Security Subcommittee of the United States Senate, 1956 – 1957
From his book ‘Special Counsel’, 1968

Vladimir Lenin’s basic plan was this: First, we will take Eastern Europe, then the masses of Asia. Then we will encircle the United States, which will be the last bastion of capitalism. We will not have to attack. It will become so rotten from within that it will fall like an overripe fruit into our hands.

And who, in 2009, is prepared to argue that Lenin was wrong? America has indeed become rotten from within; rotten spiritually, rotten politically and rotten socially. And America is indeed falling before her conquerors like an overripe fruit.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt your chances of conquest if you can place Marxists and other Socialists calling themselves “Democrats” into the U.S. Congress, on the Supreme Court, and in the White House.

But voting for Republicans is not the answer, for they too are part of the problem. Voting for nothing but authentic
“Constitutionalists” is the only medicine for our country’s maladies.

THE “REAL MAN” SERIES: #12) SENATOR JOSEPH McCARTHY

.
Senator Joseph McCarthy was born on November 14, 1908. Of course, he wasn’t a Senator when he was born; that came later. But to honor the Great Patriot on his birthday, I have recreated below a book list which I originally put together for that lying, liberal, jackass-infested website Amazon.com – the dirty, rotten scoundrels!

Believe me, it took A LOT of time-consuming work to transport all of this information here to my Blog (well over three hours), so I hope you like it, my ferret-faced fascist friends.

THE “REAL MAN” SERIES: #12) SENATOR JOSEPH McCARTHY

[From the STMcC archives; 2007, June 22.]

"I do not think we need fear too much about the Communists dropping atomic bombs on Washington. They would kill too many of their friends that way."
~ Senator Joseph McCarthy
The Congressional Record; June 14, 1951

Do you think you know the truth about SENATOR JOSEPH McCARTHY? Read some of the following books. The man was demonized unmercifully by the mass media and even many of his fellow Senators. No man has been more unjustly vilified in the United States than McCarthy. Even Jesus still fares better in America. That McCarthy was able to absorb the blows to his reputation and continue fighting must have required nearly superhuman strength and will. There is no American Patriot I admire more.

The Senator's enemies included some of the biggest liars, scoundrels, traitors, and accessories to murder in Mankind's history! And McCarthy's enemies were America's enemies, too. After you have looked through this list, please read the surprising and carefully researched James J. Drummey essay, "THE REAL McCARTHY RECORD", by going to the following web address:

THE DICTIONARY OF CULTURAL LITERACY
By E.D. Hirsch
.

.
From page 273:
One of McCarthy's tactics was to establish guilt by association: to brand as communists people who merely had known a communist or who had agreed with the communists on some issue such as racial equality.

And that's how they brainwash you, folks; it's as easy as THAT! Without independent research, you won't recognize their lies and the manner in which they manipulate your perception.

FOUNDATIONS: THEIR POWER AND INFLUENCE
By Rene A. Wormser
.

.
From page 177:
It is difficult to mark the line beyond which Socialism becomes Communism. Socialism has the same ends as Communism, though with an allegedly democratic approach. Marx did not distinguish between Socialism & Communism. The major distinction as asserted by the Communists, is that they believe in the necessity of a temporary dictatorship...Socialism is basically antithetical to our system.

THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO
By Karl Marx
.

.
The words of KARL MARX from page 22:
"Abolition of the family!"

Why? Because "It Takes A Village", baby! It takes the influence of the State to keep your children brainwashed into the principles of Socialism.

WAS KARL MARX A SATANIST?
By Richard Wurmbrand
.

.
Was Karl Marx a satanist? Uhm... Maybe.
In a poem he wrote: "I wish to avenge myself against the One who rules above."

From his drama Oulanem:
"If there is something which devours, I'll leap within it, though I bring the world to ruins-- The world which bulks between me and the abyss I will smash to pieces with my enduring curses."

MARXISM is the name of his "enduring curse." (Wouldn't he have been the life of a party?)

HANOI JANE said: "If you understood what Communism was you would pray on your knees that we would someday become communists." But you didn't see her move to Moscow, Beijing, or even Hanoi, did you?

STANISLAW MIKOLAJCZYK, former Prime Minister of Poland said: "Communism is an evil which is embraced only by fools and idealists not under the actual heel of such rule."

IMAGINE
By John Lennon
.

.
John Lennon once said that his song IMAGINE "is virtually a communist manifesto." I guess it didn't bother him much that while he sang "imagine no possessions", for tax purposes he owned a herd of Hereford cattle he had never even seen. I'm OK with the cattle, but I detest the hypocrisy of a wealthy capitalist advocating Socialism for all the "little people" like you and me!

SENATOR JOE McCARTHY
By Richard Rovere
.

LENIN said: "We can and must write in a language which sows among the masses hate, revulsion, scorn and the like, toward those who disagree with us."

ROY COHN said: "Rovere has become a kind of one-man bureau of misinformation on the subject."

THE UNSEEN HAND
By A. Ralph Epperson
.

.
From page 311:
Referring to the 1945 Yalta Conference between Roosevelt and Stalin, on September 23, 1950, McCarthy charged: "Here was signed the death warrant of the young men who are dying today in the hills and valleys of Korea. Here was signed the death warrant of the young men who will die tomorrow in the jungles of Indochina (Vietnam)."

20TH CENTURY HEROES
By The New American Magazine
.

.
From page 170:
JOSEPH McCARTHY said . . .
I thought we were losing to international Communism because of incompetence and stupidity on the part of our planners. I mentioned that to [Secretary of Defense, James] Forrestal. I shall forever remember his answer. He said, "McCarthy, consistency has never been a mark of stupidity. If they were merely stupid they would occasionally make a mistake in our favor."

McCARTHY AND HIS ENEMIES
By Buckley and Bozell

From page 267:
Since McCarthy's critics pretty well rule the communications industry, they have enmeshed the public in their own hectic confusion."

Originally published in 1954, this remains one of the best, most meticulously researched books into the truth about "McCarthyism."

THE LATTIMORE STORY
By John T. Flynn
.

.
From page 4:
I think it is a fair assumption that Senator McCarthy, a normal American, a newcomer at the time into the field of controversy with the Reds, must have been astounded at the blows that were immediately dealt him, not by the Communist Party openly, but by the New York Times, the New York Herald Tribune, various conservative magazines . . .

WHO PROMOTED PERESS?
By Lionel Lokos
.

.
From page 11:
The sustained repetition of wholly undocumented hearsay, the fantastic propaganda of the Far Left and its liberal friends, have infected all but the staunchest anti-Communists. Some conservative voices have been silent in the face of the most blatant lies about the McCarthy effort. ... We need his courage and dogged persistence in the face of a hostile and bloated propaganda machine.

COVERING McCARTHYISM: HOW THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR HANDLED JOSEPH R. McCARTHY, 1950 - 1954
By Strout
.

.
From page 5 of McCARTHYISM: THE FIGHT FOR AMERICA:
When Tydings made his threat that I had brought on an investigation of myself and not an investigation of Communists in government, I heard a slight commotion at the press table. Glancing around, I saw Richard L. Strout of THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR, shaking the hand of Rob Hall of the Communist DAILY WORKER.

McCARTHY
By Roy Cohn
.

.
From page 267:
This was the man McCarthy as I knew him. He was rough-hewn, never managing to throw off his country-boy origins. He was warm and friendly. He took his job seriously but never himself. He would go to great lengths to help those he knew who were in trouble. He had more real personal courage than almost any man I ever knew.

SPECIAL COUNSEL
By William Rusher
.

.
From page 239:
McCarthy "was a thoroughly masculine example of the type called 'black Irish.' His manner was pleasant, soft-spoken, almost shy. Bitterness simply wasn't in character for him. ... At no point did McCarthy recklessly or casually impute Communism to non-Communists who disagreed with him, or whom he personally happened to dislike."

"Well done, thou good and faithful servant."

MAJOR SPEECHES AND DEBATES OF SENATOR JOE McCARTHY, DELIVERED IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE, 1950 - 1951
Reprint from The Congressional Record
.

.
From page 218:
McCARTHY said: “This administration, which has given us this caricature of a war, is now bent on an even worse horror – a phony and fraudulent peace. It is planned by Secretary Marshall and the elegant and alien [Dean] Acheson – Russian as to heart, British as to manner.”

From page 7 of McCARTHYISM: THE FIGHT FOR AMERICA:
Whenever I ask those who object to my methods to name the objectionable methods, again I hear parroted back to me the Communist Daily Worker stock phrase, irresponsible charges and smearing innocent people. But as often as I have asked for the name of a single innocent person who has been smeared or irresponsibly charged, nothing but silence answers.

THE VENONA SECRETS: EXPOSING SOVIET ESPIONAGE AND AMERICA'S TRAITORS

JOSEPH McCARTHY: REEXAMINING THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF AMERICA'S MOST HATED SENATOR
By Arthur Herman
.

.
With the decoded Venona material being publicly revealed and proving totally factual McCarthy’s charges that Communists had infiltrated the U.S. Government, the Liberals needed to attack Patriot McCarthy’s reputation from a different angle. Herman’s book did so. It’s a rather clever attempt at “damage control” but you’ll be able to see through it if you’re “smarter than the average bear.”

McCARTHYISM: THE FIGHT FOR AMERICA
By Joseph McCarthy
.

.
From page 27:
In 1946, the Communist-controlled government of Poland requested a $90 million loan from the U.S.A. Ambassador Lane begged the State Department not to grant the loan, pointing out the terroristic activities, the imprisonment of American citizens, and the fact that much of it was slated for the Communist terror police. Dean Acheson ignored Lane's plea and granted the loan.

TREASON: LIBERAL TREACHERY FROM THE COLD WAR TO THE WAR ON TERRORISM
By Ann Coulter
.

.
From page 33:
Dean Acheson, with his fake British accent, his Groton and Yale degrees, was one of McCarthy's favorite targets. He had no use for mincing Ivy League diplomats with Communist partisans on their staff. After Acheson appeared in the Social Pages on a Best Dressed list, McCarthy began referring to him as The Red Dean Of Fashion. Privately, he called Acheson "that striped pants asshole.”

THE NAKED CAPITALIST
By W. Cleon Skousen
.

.
From page 86:
McCarthy was no 'genteel Senatorial sophisticate.' He was primarily an ex-Marine who had seen enough of the subversion and corruption in certain Military / White House / State Department policies to alert him to the fact that there are some very real enemies in the American camp. He didn't care whether they wore striped pants or army uniforms.

REAL MEN DON'T EAT QUICHE
By Bruce Feirstein
.

.
Senator Joseph McCarthy NEVER ate quiche (he couldn't even spell it), but Dean Acheson not only ate the stuff, he bathed in it!

SHEEPSKIN PADS
By Sheepskin Ranch Inc.
.

.
Acheson's policies were responsible for the deaths of millions of innocent people through the years. If there is an afterlife where quiche-eating men must drop their striped pants, grasp their ankles knee-deep in sheep dip, and submit to the abuse of degenerate male sheep for 90 minutes a day, 7 days a week, Dean Acheson is surely there!

TRAGEDY & HOPE: A HSITORY OF THE WORLD IN OUR TIME
By Carroll Quigley
.

.
On pages 928 & 929 of his book, Carroll Quigley (a mentor to Bill "It Depends On What The Meaning Of The Word 'Is' Is" Clinton) spewed forth so much invective at McCarthy that I imagine he was frothing at the mouth as he wrote. He probably had to be sedated. But then Quigley supported International Banker-inspired Totalitarian Socialism, so he was naturally anti-McCarthy.

IT TAKES A VILLAGE
By Hellary Clinton
.

.
IT TAKES A VILLAGE IDIOT not to realize to what extent America has been turned away from its Constitutional foundation of liberty and free enterprise, and instead redirected toward totalitarian Socialism instituted by bureaucrats who don't answer to We The People. (See volume #13 in The "REAL MAN" Series, featuring Senator Sir Hillary Clinton.)

BRAINWASHED: HOW UNIVERSITIES INDOCTRINATE AMERICA'S YOUTH
By Ben Shapiro
.

.
From page 101 of McCARTHYISM: THE FIGHT FOR AMERICA:
Hitler said, "Give me control of the educational system for five years and I shall control that country indefinitely." We cannot win the fight against Socialism if Socialist-minded professors are teaching your children. We cannot lose the fight against Socialism if loyal Americans are teaching your children.

NONE DARE CALL IT TREASON . . . 25 YEARS LATER
By John Stormer
.

.
From page 87:
The tragedy of the McCarthy story is that McCarthy was essentially right. What he said and tried to prove was rarely denied. It was simply buried in the controversy his charges provoked.

NONE DARE CALL IT TREASON . . . 25 YEARS LATER remains one of the most important, and still relevant, political tomes ever published - a "Must-Read" for Real American Patriots!

McCARTHY: THE ANSWER TO 'TAILGUNNER JOE'
By Roy Cohn
.

.
ROY COHN said: “They talk about the innocent people McCarthy destroyed. I have yet to have them give me one name. I have a standard answer: 'Name one.' They usually come up with someone who came before some other committee, or Hollywood, or something which was never a focus of a McCarthy investigation."

THE SHADOWS OF POWER: THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS AND THE AMERICAN DECLINE
By James Perloff
.

.
From page 106:
McCarthy was crucified because he discovered that there was more than a tip to the iceberg...Eisenhower was determined to destroy McCarthy but left it to his subordinates to pressure Congress to censure the senator. Anyone who believes McCarthy made wild accusations should read his expose of George Marshall, AMERICA'S RETREAT FROM VICTORY, in which he scrupulously documented every charge.

THE ASSASSINATION OF JOE McCARTHY
By Medford Evans
.

.
From page 297:
Many if not all of those who destroyed McCarthy KNEW that he was a good man. Indeed, that was the reason why he was destroyed -- he was too fearless to be intimidated, too innocent to be corrupted, too charismatically gifted to be ignored.

THE FULTON LEWIS JR. REPORT ON 'THE FUND FOR THE REPUBLIC'
By Fulton Lewis Jr.
.

.
May 2, 1957, the day McCarthy died, Lewis said on his radio broadcast: "I have never seen such a shocking exhibition of distorted reporting and reportorial untruth as I witnessed... Never in 35 years of reporting, have I seen such an organized lynching as was given to the junior Senator from Wisconsin, and I have no hesitancy in sitting here at this microphone and saying so, forever and forever."

Whether we're on a Rocket to Russia or a Slow Boat to China, it ain't a pretty view from America 2007.

RATS LEAPING OVERBOARD, ABANDONING 'THE GOOD SHIP HOPE & CHANGE'

.
Not far from where I live here in Phoenix, Airheadzona, is a house I have occasion to drive past on a semi-regular basis. I’ve never actually spoken with the residents but judging from the handmade “Peace On Earth” sign that’s been hanging across the front of their house for years and the parade of anti-Bush signs that made appearances during the 8-year debacle under King George W(ish I had a brain) Bush, it’s a pretty safe bet that the people living in the Billboard House are registered Democrats. I mean, let’s be honest, only a Screwball Squirrel Liberal would permanently hang an ugly hand-lettered “Peace On Earth” sign on the front of their house.
.

.
[The Peace Sign.]

The “Peace On Earth” sign had been displayed all by its lonesome since King "W" left office and Mr. Hope Change took over the White House with help from his Marxist friends. But early last week, I suddenly discovered that the peace sign had company. When you hear of rumors that even many Democrats who voted for USAP are now turning against him and causing a drop in his approval numbers, you’d better believe them. The evidence is on the front of this house. The sign may be a bit hard to read, so I’ve printed the text below it:
.

.
[A sign of Democrat Dissatisfaction.]

To: Camp Obama and U.N. Nobel Peace Prize
DPT: Marsha Clarck O.J.’s prosecutor was made
Woman Of The Year after she lost O.J.s case!
Obama received 2009 Nobel Peace
Prize!? What for?! For: talkeng, traveleng,
spendeng, promesseng….Michelle haw
about giving back? I was less than a slave here in U.S.

.

.
[A Nut House beats a Full House hands-down.]

If you were wondering about the unique spelling on that political sign, remember this is Airheadzona – how many times I gotta tell ya how dumb these people is?

Don’t bother asking about the “slave” reference as I haven’t even a clue to its meaning.

As for the property values . . . never mind. The sad fact is that our home prices are now so low in Phoenix that even neighbors like these in the Billboard House can’t diminish them further. Airheadzona sez: “Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled spelling bee dropouts.”

RETARDS IN THE RUMPUS ROOM

.
Below is a photograph that my buddy Br’er Marc sent to me a few days back. I figure it’s currently winging its way to everybody’s home computer. I’ve included below (in red) the text which accompanied the picture. I don’t know how much, if any, of what was written is by Buddy Br’er, but it’s all worth reading:

Nothing else need to be said. This is one of their THREE-DAY WORK WEEKS that we all pay for. I am ready to start from the beginning by voting out all elected officials and not letting any of them stay in office for more than two terms. No more lifelong healthcare, retirement, voting in their own pay raises, taking perks on our taxes, etc.
.

.
House Minority Leader Lawrence F. Cafero Jr., R-Norwalk, pictured standing, far right, speaks while colleagues Rep. Barbara Lambert, D-Milford and Rep. Jack F. Hennessy, D-Bridgeport, play solitaire Monday night as the House convened to vote on a new budget. (AP)

The guy sitting in the row in front of these two, he's on Facebook, and the guy behind Hennessy is checking out the baseball scores.

Personally, I’m all for removing every computer but one from the Rumpus Room and then locking the retards inside. With any luck at all (and sympathy from God for our plight) they will all fight each other to the death over that one computer, like wild dogs fighting for a piece of meat. Then the last congressman standing, we can bring up on murder charges and imprison for life. And then we PARTY LIKE IT’S DECEMBER 20th , 2012 !

"YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN"

.

.
IN HONOR OF ALL THE AMERICAN SOLDIERS KNOWINGLY ABANDONED BY THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT TO A LIFETIME OF CAPTIVITY IN SOUTHEAST ASIA.

The refugee explained that except for times when he or the American was sick, they saw each other twice a day for almost ten years. He said he and the American did not speak at first, but some time later they began talking in hurried whispers when the guards were not too close. The refugee explained that their first conversations were simple greetings, but later the American, speaking in Vietnamese he said he had learned in prison, began asking about things "on the outside. Like the Chinese invasion." The refugee recalled that he had asked the American in 1980 how long he had been a prisoner, and that he had replied "over 10 years." The American later said his name was "UY-STON" [83] and that his arm and leg had been injured when he had parachuted out of his plane and landed in trees and then struck the ground. According to the refugee, "UY-STON" further said that because of his injuries he did not work with the other American prisoners held at the K-3 prison but instead was a cook.

. . . The refugee said that by 1984, he and "UY-STON," whom he described as intelligent and having a gentle, soft-spoken demeanor, began to speak more often. He said it was then that "UY-STON" told him, "If you should ever be released, tell the USG there are 123 of us still here." The refugee said that from that day forward, each time they met, "UY-STON" would remind him of this by saying, "Remember, won't you?" and he would always reply, "I won't forget."

[83.] -- The source's exact pronunciation was "EWE-ston," somewhat like the city Houston. DOD records show that one American serviceman with a similar-sounding name, Army Green Beret Sgt. Charles G. Huston, went missing in Laos on March 28, 1968.

IMPALIN' PALIN

.
With the upcoming release of her book ‘Going Rogue’ and a scheduled appearance on Oprah Winfrey’s show, Sarah Palin is “ramped up” (one of her favorite terms) in the news again. I figured now would be a good time for me to very briefly weigh in on the subject of Alaska’s favorite moose-hunting politician.

The big question is: Does Sarah Palin have a future in national politics?
And the answer is: It depends upon how conservative she really is.

In September of last year, Chuck Baldwin (the Constitution Party’s candidate for president) posted the following on an internet website:

When the no-compromise constitutionalist, Ron Paul, was asked by CNN's Wolf Blitzer if he would consider being John McCain's running mate, he said no. His reason for that was that should McCain do something fundamentally counter to his constitutional convictions -- such as bombing Iran without a Declaration of War (or other possible unconstitutional actions that Paul knows McCain is predisposed to) -- he would have to resign. Knowing this, he (Paul) could not in good conscience accept a McCain invitation to join his ticket (not that McCain would ever ask him to be his running mate; Ron was not even invited to participate in the Republican convention, for Pete's sake).

Herein lies the problem for Sarah Palin. How can a principled conservative support the policies and actions of an unprincipled globalist such as John McCain?

Indeed, how could one? Well, a truly principled conservative could NOT. And this says a lot about Sarah Palin. No genuinely conservative, self-respecting politician who honors our Constitution could possibly allow their good reputation to become tarnished by hanging on the coattails of a scoundrel like John McCain. A REAL “Constitutional conservative” like Ron Paul would have turned McCain down. But Sarah Palin didn’t.

By offering Palin, a woman with a conservative reputation (gotta grab that female vote!), the vice presidential spot on his ticket last year, John McCain proved that he was a poltical pimp who would do anything necessary to take up residence in the White House bedroom. In accepting John McCain’s offer as his vice presidential running mate in the last election, Sarah Palin proved that she is a political prostitute who would compromise her conservative principles (if she actually possesses them) in order to further her career. She was like the would-be actress who disrobes and takes her place on “the casting couch” in hopes that putting out a little for “the man” today will help her score the part that will make her a household name movie star someday.

That Sarah Palin is a social conservative I do not doubt. But her political conservatism is much more in question.

In a neutral or slightly pro-Palin Time magazine cover story on July 20, 2009, Palin is quoted as having said: “The debt that our nation is incurring, trillions of dollars that we’re passing on to our kids, expecting them to pay off for us, is immoral and doesn’t even make economic sense.”

That’s certainly true, but where is Palin’s loud and straightforward condemnation of this nation’s primary economic problem: the private central bank known as The Federal Reserve? How is it that all these so-called conservatives who laud the idea of prudent economics and who extol the wisdom of our Founding Fathers – people like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck – always seem to leave the obvious need to dismantle The Federal Reserve out of their recipe of solutions?

This same Time magazine article further mentioned the stamp of approval that highly influential Neoconservatives Fred Barnes and William Kristol gave Sarah Palin upon meeting her in June of 2007. That alone SPEAKS VOLUMES about Palin’s supposed political conservatism.

During the October 2, 2008 presidential debate with Joe Biden, Sarah Palin made two comments that nearly made me choke. I was quite surprised when it later went unreported by the many supposed conservatives in the independent media and in Blogland. Where was the Fox News comment?

The following comes directly from the transcript of the aforementioned debate:

PALIN: Say it ain't so, Joe, there you go again pointing backwards again. You preferenced your whole comment with the Bush administration. Now doggone it, let's look ahead and tell Americans what we have to plan to do for them in the future. You mentioned education and I'm glad you did. I know education you are passionate about with your wife being a teacher for 30 years, and God bless her. Her reward is in heaven, right? I say, too, with education, America needs to be putting a lot more focus on that and our schools have got to be really ramped up in terms of the funding that they are deserving. Teachers needed to be paid more. I come from a house full of school teachers. My grandma was, my dad who is in the audience today, he's a schoolteacher, had been for many years. My brother, who I think is the best schoolteacher in the year, and here's a shout-out to all those third graders at Gladys Wood Elementary School, you get extra credit for watching the debate.

Education credit in American has been in some sense in some of our states just accepted to be a little bit lax and we have got to increase the standards. No Child Left Behind was implemented. It's not doing the job though. We need flexibility in No Child Left Behind. We need to put more of an emphasis on the profession of teaching. We need to make sure that education in either one of our agendas, I think, absolute top of the line. My kids as public school participants right now, it's near and dear to my heart. I'm very, very concerned about where we're going with education and we have got to ramp it up and put more attention in that arena.

Shortly afterwards, Sarah sed . . .

PALIN: Well, our founding fathers were very wise there in allowing through the Constitution much flexibility there in the office of the vice president. And we will do what is best for the American people in tapping into that position and ushering in an agenda that is supportive and cooperative with the president's agenda in that position. Yeah, so I do agree with him that we have a lot of flexibility in there, and we'll do what we have to do to administer very appropriately the plans that are needed for this nation.

“The Plans” for this nation, eh? Hmmm…

Was I really the only person who caught the contradiction in these statements? On the one hand, Palin tells the audience “our schools have got to be really ramped up in terms of the funding that they are deserving” and then on the other hand she feigns great respect for the wisdom of our Founding Fathers.

Well, if Sarah Palin REALLY has so much respect for the work of our Founding Dads then she wouldn’t have been talking about “ramping up” funding for education. In fact, she would be pointing out that our founders made no provision for the funding of education in America by our national government. I’d love to have Palin point out for me the Constitutional justification for extracting taxes from American citizens to be redistributed in the name of education. It’s an odd thing, but I have spent a good number of years studying the U.S. Constitution and I have never found the Article and Clause that legalizes Uncle Sam’s plundering of We The People in order to nationalize (piss poor) education.

My guess is that a desperate Sarah Palin would pull out the Constitution’s “general welfare” clause in answer to my demand. Well, that sure isn’t going to get the job done for her. In clearly denouncing the concept that the “general welfare” clause could be used to justify anything the federal government sought to do, James “The Father Of The Constitution” Madison made the following statement to the House Of Representatives on February 7, 1792:

“If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every state, county, and parish, and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may assume the provision for the poor; they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post-roads; in short, every thing, from the highest object of state legislation down to the most minute object of police, would be thrown under the power of Congress; for every object I have mentioned would admit of the application of money, and might be called, if Congress pleased, provisions for the general welfare.”

Obviously, James Madison is one of those “wise” Founding Fathers who would vehemently disagree with conservative [Cough!-Cough!] Sarah Palin’s desire to “ramp up” funding for federal education [a.k.a. as “brainwashing”]. So much for her respect of the founding principles of this country.

One of my favorite quotes illustrating the hypocrisy of today’s phony conservatives in the realm of federal education comes from best-selling author Thomas Woods who offered his pithy and accurate description of one feature of ‘Constitution Day.’ He said:

“Constitution Day: Observed on September 17th, is the day on which federally funded American educational institutions - themselves unconstitutional - are unconstitutionally required to teach about the Constitution.”

At another point in the vice presidential debate, Sarah Palin made the following statement:

PALIN: No and Dr. Henry Kissinger especially. I had a good conversation with him recently. And he shared with me his passion for diplomacy. And that's what John McCain and I would engage in also.

Well, pardon me, but anyone who holds up Henry Kissinger as a valued example of American diplomacy in action has either no real understanding of our country’s history and Kissinger’s malevolent role in foreign diplomacy, or else that person intends to employ that same modus operandi in future negotiations with foreign powers. Either way, NO THANK YOU!!! Henry Kissinger is a representative of the unseen Elite political powers that have wrecked America; he is a Council On Foreign Relations member and a cancer in our country.

Sarah Palin also said in last year’s debate:

“That's what John McCain has been known for in all these years. He has been the maverick. He has ruffled feathers.”

No, ma’am, John McCain has not been a maverick (any more than you will turn out to be a rogue conservative element within The Establishment should you get yourself elected president). What John McCain has been is a TRAITOR. He has been a traitor to his political party – check out his voting record; he has been a traitor to his country – check out his Council On Foreign Relations membership; and maybe most disgusting of all, he has been a traitor to his fellow soldiers in Vietnam – check out the book 'AN ENORMOUS CRIME: The Definitive Account Of American POWs Abandoned In Southeast Asia.' To hell with John McCain! And to hell with anyone who would praise him!

The pseudo-conservative Neocons are making a lot of noise these days, trying to further inflame the general discontentment amongst We The People and capitalize on the flagrant Socialism of USAP. You can be sure that between now and 2012, the likes of Limbaugh and Beck will spout a whole lot of true American principles and quotes from the Founding Fathers in order to educate the masses about “some” of the ways we’ve gone wrong - while deftly ignoring some of the most damaging and important transgressions our government has institutionalized in opposition to our healthy founding principles.

And you can be just as certain that IF Sarah Palin is a genuine conservative (a rogue), she will be marginalized by the media and her own political party before the next election takes place. She will get “The Ron Paul Treatment” if she’s a true conservative (i.e., “a Constitutionalist”). However, if she is really just another phony “Conservative”-In-Name-Only Republican - as the evidence thus far seems to indicate and as I have every reason to suspect - then she will indeed be a viable candidate when it comes time to throw out the last bastard in favor of the new one. The last thing the Secret Elite who own We The People are going to permit is a rogue element inside their carefully crafted and controlled system.

My guess is that, to the detriment of the country, Sarah Palin will still be headline news three years from now. As even the July 20, 2009 Time magazine article pointed out: “A lot of conservative politicians stop wanting smaller government the minute the government is them.” Of course, an even greater truth is that a lot of conservative politicians aren’t REALLY conservative at all and have never HONESTLY wanted smaller government. Smaller government just isn’t part of "The Plan" for this nation.
