HILLARY CLINTON EMBRACES GEORGE SOROS’ ‘RADICAL’ VISION OF OPEN-BORDER WORLD

Friday, November 4th, 2016

 

 – The Washington Times – Thursday, October 20, 2016

Hillary Clinton has aligned herself closely with a vision for America laid out by her benefactor — left-wing financier George Soros, who talks of “international governance,” more open borders, increased Muslim immigration and diminished U.S. global power.

The phrase “American exceptionalism” is not part of his agenda. He wrote in 1998: “The sovereignty of states must be subordinated to international law and international institutions.”

“We need some global system of political decision-making. In short, we need a global society to support our global economy,” Mr. Soros wrote.

After the Sept. 11, 2001, al Qaeda attacks on New York City and the Pentagon, he said, “Military power is of limited use in dealing with asymmetric threats such as terrorism.”

The Clinton-Soros symbiosis came into clearer focus this month with WikiLeaks’ release of thousands of hacked emails from John Podesta, Mrs. Clinton’s campaign chairman. Mr. Soros‘ name comes up nearly 60 times.

PHOTOS – UNDERSTANDING ISLAM – GADI ADELMAN

Friday, August 12th, 2016
Gadi Adelman, a counter-terrorism expert, gave an in-depth presentation on Understanding Islam in Zebulon, North Carolina, on Tuesday, August 9, 2016.
The photos below were taken from the slide presentation that Gadi presented that gave us excellent information on the history of Islam.  Direct quotes were taken from the Quran and writings of prominent Islamic scholars.  It was a chilling presentation as there is no denying we are facing a historically determined enemy that  we desperately need to understand.     As the first slide says – “Why They Hate Us” is a question the West is always asking.  Gadi’s presentation told us why ! 
Information on Sharia compliant companies and banking which is a growing industry here in the U.S.  was also given.  For additonal information on this subject, please go to  lastresistance.com/sharia-compliant-banking-in-america/  and www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2014/10/11/shariah-compliant-islamic-financing-usa-europe/16828599/

THE LUNACY OF THE LEFT, EMBRACING DICTATORS

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

 

Stephen Moore will be the guest speaker at ICON on September 13, 2016 in Chapel Hill, NC. 

The lunacy of the left, Embracing Dictators

It ranges from embracing dictators to the candidates they choose
– – Sunday, April 3, 2016
The idea of American exceptionalism has been embedded in our DNA for generations. It is the faith-based belief that, as Ronald Reagan put it, America is a “shining city on a hill.” Do modern liberals believe that?
I almost never try to get into the other side’s head or ascribe ill motives to those on the left. They are, I’ve always believed, misguided, not malign.
But I’m having second thoughts after listening to President Obama’s defense of communism/socialism a little over a week ago when he was in Argentina. He advised young people to get behind “what works” economically — as if there is some deep mystery here. Mr. Obama didn’t misspeak. The modern left in America really has come to believe that communism, socialism, Marxism, totalitarianism, or whatever “ism” you want to call the monopolization of power into the hands of a ruling elite, is superior to free market capitalism.
The president of the United States is supposed to be the global spokesman for free enterprise. But instead of traveling to Cuba to point out to the world the decades of stagnation, deprivation, and dehumanization at the hands of Castro, and instead of using this moment in history to showcase the triumph of capitalism 90 miles away, as Mr. Reagan did so memorably at Moscow State University, Mr. Obama praises Castro’s health care and education systems.

AMERICA THREATENED BY SOCIAL TURMOIL

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

 

Taking liberties with progress

Unrestrained social turmoil threatens the exceptional nation
– – Sunday, October 4, 2015
Human progress is not a given. Great achievement can be squandered if treated carelessly. Modern-day “progressives” like President Obama, who were “liberals” before they gave the word a bad odor, are counting on transformation of the culture to eliminate memory of the past. They may regret it.
Mr. Obama’s determination to enforce “hope and change” has done more to endanger the republican form of government than any of his 43 predecessors. His unilateral executive orders disarming U.S. immigration laws have triggered waves of illegal immigration, swamping the states’ social services capacity and threaten to overwhelm institutions that have made America what it is. The United States added 430,000 foreign-born residents in 2010 and 2011, growing to 520,000 in 2012, and to more than 1 million in 2013. The foreign-born population grew to a record 42.4 million in 2014, according to an analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies.
Abroad, Mr. Obama squandered the Middle East convulsion that was naively called “the Arab Spring.” He may think it’s useful and even clever to “never let a crisis go to waste,” but the turmoil of “the Arab spring” descended into the drearily familiar pattern of murderous mayhem, ranging from anarchy in Libya to ethnic cleansing in Syria. Forces of cultural displacement are hard at work now as waves of refugees wash up on the shores of Europe and no doubt soon in the United States. The president has committed the United States to accepting 10,000 Syrians this year and 100,000 a year by 2017.
The jarring effect is already evident. Muslim parents reacted with rage when a school board in New Jersey denied their petition to close schools for a Muslim holiday. “We’re in the minority,” cried one Muslim parent, “that’s clear from tonight. We’re going to be the majority soon.”

WHAT’S WRONG WITH THE GOLDEN GOOSE?

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

 

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

What’s Wrong With the Golden Goose?

‘Secular stagnation’ isn’t to blame for lousy U.S. growth rates. Obama’s higher taxes and regulatory assault are.

By
Phil Gramm   Mr. Gramm, a former Republican senator from Texas, is a visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:   Marginal tax rates on ordinary income are up 24%, a burden that falls directly on small businesses. Tax rates on capital gains and dividends are up 59%, and the estate-tax rate is up 14%. While tax reform has languished in the U.S., other nations have cut corporate tax rates. The U.S. now has the highest corporate rate in the world and the most punitive treatment of foreign earnings.

Meanwhile, federal debt held by the public has doubled, so a return of interest rates to their postwar norms, roughly 5% on a five-year Treasury note, will send the cost of servicing the debt up by $439 billion, almost doubling the current deficit.

Large banks, under aggressive interpretation of the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial law, are regulated as if they were public utilities. Federal bureaucrats are embedded in their executive offices like political officers in the old Soviet Union. Across the financial sector the rule of law is in tatters as tens of billions of dollars are extorted from large banks in legal settlements; insurance companies and money managers are subject to regulations set by international bodies; and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, formed in 2011, faces few checks, balances or restraints

Since the Obama recovery began in the second quarter of 2009, public and private projections of economic growth have consistently overestimated actual performance. Six years later, projections of prosperity being just around the corner have given way to a debate over whether the U.S. has fallen into “secular stagnation,” a fancy phrase for the chronic low growth seen in much of Europe.

This is just another in a long line of excuses. America’s historic ability to outperform Europe is well documented; we call it American exceptionalism. It has always been based on the fact that the U.S has had better, more market-driven economic policies and our economy therefore worked better. But, as the U.S. economy is Europeanized through higher taxes and greater regulatory burdens, American exceptionalism is fading away, taking economic growth with it. (more…)

EDUCATION – THE END OF HISTORY, PART II

The End of History, Part II

The new Advanced Placement U.S. history exam focuses on oppression, group identity and Reagan the warmonger

Lynne V. CheneyMrs. Cheney, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, writes about history. Her most recent book is “James Madison: A Life Reconsidered” (Viking, 2014).

If you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!

—President Ronald Reagan, speech at the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin, 1987

President Reagan’s challenge to Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev remains one of the most dramatic calls for freedom in our time. Thus I was heartened to find a passage from Reagan’s speech on the sample of the new Advanced Placement U.S. history exam that students will take for the first time in May. It seemed for a moment that students would be encouraged to learn about positive aspects of our past rather than be directed to focus on the negative, as happens all too often.

But when I looked closer to see the purpose for which the quotation was used, I found that it is held up as an example of “increased assertiveness and bellicosity” on the part of the U.S. in the 1980s. That’s the answer to a multiple-choice question about what Reagan’s speech reflects.

No notice is taken of the connection the president made between freedom and human flourishing, no attention to the fact that within 2½ years of the speech, people were chipping off pieces of the Berlin Wall as souvenirs. Instead of acknowledging important ideas and historical context, test makers have reduced President Reagan’s most eloquent moment to warmongering.

The AP U.S. history exam matters. Half a million of the nation’s best and brightest high-school students will take it this year, hoping to use it to earn college credit and to polish their applications to competitive colleges. To score well on the exam, students have to learn what the College Board, a private organization that creates the exam, wants them to know. (more…)
