EXPLOSIVE VIDEO – GLENN BECK – “TIRED OF IT!”

Monday, June 8th, 2020

 

This is one of the most powerful videos that Glenn Beck has done.  Please share   Nancy    P.S.   This video will occasionally stop for a commercial..  Just click on SKIP AD and the video will continue.
Glenn has had enough. Do politicians on the left stand for ANYTHING that they preach? Because one month ago they were locking people inside their homes, ARRESTING business owners, and destroying our economy. They said it was necessary. They said millions of Americans would die from COVID-19 if we didn’t step in line, close our doors, and let our neighbor’s livelihoods be destroyed. But now, those very same leaders are out in the streets, surrounded by MASSES of people, marching in the Floyd protests san-mask. What happened to COVID-19? Social distancing? They called the Tea Party protests violent. But now, according to CNN, violence should be EXPECTED when fighting injustices. And while riots destroy our cities and our nation burns, sharing our thoughts on the electronic “public square” only brings even stronger efforts to edit unpopular opinions out of existence.

A TIME TO HATE

This is one  of the best articles I have ever read !  Please share far and wide.     Nancy

A Time to Hate
It’s not too late.
by Rabbi Dov Fischer, Esq. – American Spectator – May 11, 2020


To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to guard, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.
— Kohelet (Ecclesiastes) 3:1-8

Through eight years, I accepted the rules of the game. Obama was president. He won fair and square because the Republicans serially put up two milquetoast opponents who were incapable of offering a vision or articulating a message that inspired. John McCain had been an American wartime hero who stood by his men, refused early release, and withstood torture in the “Hanoi Hilton” 40 years earlier. But he had no business running for a presidency two generations later for which he was not prepared to fight and for which he had no vision. And then came Mitt Romney, his etch-a-sketch candidacy, his binders full of women, and his Romneycare, which served as the model for the Obamacare and which was the single most galvanizing issue in 2012 for Republican conservatives. In order to throw out Obamacare, the Republican Party offered us conservatives … what, Romneycare? Tough for us conservatives to sing in that tabernacle choir.
I accepted Obama. I never articulated his first name, and I never called him “president,” but I accepted the results and accepted that this Pretender was our country’s lawfully elected chief executive. I watched his arrogance, the unctuous way he carried himself literally with his nose up, the way he never held a railing while walking a stairway because he was too cool, the kinds of human dreck he regularly invited as his White House guests, and I accepted it all with the soft whisper, “This, too, shall pass.” I watched the Corrupt Journalist Corps idolize him, crown him a king, admire him as a messiah and a deity, and I accepted the milieu. This, too, in time would pass. It meant living through eight years of the deepest public corruption. Lois Lerner stealing an election by leveraging the awesome power of the Internal Revenue Service to close down legitimate conservative political groups. Eric Holder — the nobleman who urged people to kick enemies — bringing lawlessness and corruption into the Justice Department, even approving the “Fast and Furious” idea of releasing lethal weapons to Mexican drug lords in the cockamamie scheme to find out how they access and move their weapons. Glenn Beck exposed Obama’s Maoist communications director, Anita Dunn, who walked children through the White House. There was ACORN. Just one corruption after another.

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON – MEMBERS OF PREVIOUS GENERATIONS NOW SEEM LIKE GIANTS

Past vs. Present

Victor Davis Hanson column: Members of previous generations now seem like giants

Oct 9, 2019

 

www.richmond.com/opinion/columnists/victor-davis-hanson-column-members-of-previous-generations-now-seem-like-giants/article_bca413bb-5505-5ee9-8ed8-86a25e4f57a9.html

Many of the stories about the gods and heroes of Greek mythology were compiled during the Greek Dark Ages. Impoverished tribes passed down oral traditions that originated after the fall of the lost palatial civilizations of the Mycenaean Greeks.

Dark Age Greeks tried to make sense of the massive ruins of their forgotten forbearers’ monumental palaces that were still standing around. As illiterates, they were curious about occasional clay tablets they plowed up in their fields with incomprehensible ancient Linear B inscriptions.

We of the 21st century are beginning to look back at our own lost epic times and wonder about these now-nameless giants who left behind monuments that we cannot replicate, but instead merely use or even mock.

Does anyone believe that contemporary Americans could build another transcontinental railroad in six years?

Californians tried to build a high-speed rail line. But after more than a decade of government incompetence, lawsuits, cost overruns and constant bureaucratic squabbling, they have all but given up.

The result is a half-built overpass over the skyline of Fresno — and not yet a foot of track laid.

Who were those giants of the 1960s responsible for building our interstate highway system?

California’s roads now are mostly the same as we inherited them, although the state population has tripled. We have added little to our freeway network, either because we forgot how to build good roads or would prefer to spend the money on redistributive entitlements.

 

When California had to replace a quarter section of the earthquake-damaged San Francisco Bay Bridge, it turned into a near-disaster, with 11 years of acrimony, fighting, cost overruns — and a commentary on our decline into Dark Ages primitivism. Yet 82 years ago, our ancestors built four times the length of our single replacement span in less than four years.

It took them just two years to design the entire Bay Bridge and award the contracts.

Our generation required five years just to plan to replace a single section. In inflation-adjusted dollars, we spent six times the money on a quarter of the length of the bridge and required 13 agencies to grant approval. In 1936, just one agency oversaw the entire bridge project.

SEVEN FATEFUL CORONAVIRUS DECISIONS

Seven Fateful Coronavirus Decisions

President Trump acted with dispatch, to keep Americans safe, even when it was unpopular.

By Robert C. O’Brien    Robert O’Brien is White House national security adviser
April 21, 2020

Facing a once-in-a-century pandemic, a crisis that some have likened to a world war, the U.S. is fortunate to have President Trump in charge. I have witnessed him make the tough decisions necessary at every turn to keep America safe. Seven of these decisions stand out.

First, the president assembled a team. On Jan. 29 he established the White House Coronavirus Task Force. Now under Vice President Mike Pence’s leadership, the task force has consolidated the government’s public-health expertise and responded in real time to the virus’s spread. Deborah Birx, a world-renowned physician, was detailed on March 2 from the State Department to serve as the coronavirus response coordinator, joining Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who were already in the fight.

Second, on Jan. 31 Mr. Trump ordered travel restrictions barring foreign nationals who had recently been in China from entering the U.S., quarantines for Americans who had visited China’s Hubei province, and a strong advisory against Americans traveling to China. These moves bought time to prepare for the large-scale arrival of the virus on U.S. shores, but they weren’t popular at the time.

The next day, on Feb. 1, Joe Biden criticized the president’s “xenophobia” and “fear-mongering.” He stressed that “diseases have no borders.” It took until April 3 for Mr. Biden to do a 180 and come out in support of the president’s travel restrictions. The Washington Post editorial board condemned the restrictions on Feb. 5, positing that “Mr. Trump’s goal is to shut off the spigot of plucky, hopeful and ambitious people who aspire to become Americans.”

Third, on March 11 Mr. Trump suspended travel to the U.S. for foreign nationals who had recently been in 26 European nations, despite considerable pressure to exempt allies. The president extended these restrictions on March 14 to travel from the U.K. and Ireland, two of America’s closest partners. This was, again, a difficult and controversial call at the time, given our countries’ unique and longstanding ties.

COVID-19 AND THE APPROACHING NEW NORMAL

COVID-19 and the approaching new normal

By Terry Mudge

The COVID-19 mantra, “we’re all in this together,” is echoed in advertisements, by conservatives, liberals, and public service announcements.  The new heroes are fast food and grocery workers.  Being a good citizen is obeying stay-at-home mandates for the safety of others.  Feel-good stories of people working together contrast the stories of hospitals as war zones.  The daily COVID-19 death toll resurrects memories for us older folks of the Vietnam War’s daily casualty counts.

Can Americans be so naïve they don’t see this crisis for what it is?  COVID-19 is being used to usher in a new morality in alignment with a globalist population monitor-and-control system under the guise of public safety.  Let’s look at the facts globalists don’t want Americans to add together.

·         Economies across the globe are significantly compromised.

·         Business-owners have suffered the loss of property without due process or compensation.

·         Stay-at-home mandates, effectively jailing people in their homes.

·         No criteria established to measure the consequences of stay-at-home mandates or the shutdown of the economy.

·         No right of assembly.

·         Churches closed.

·         Courts have been closed so there can be no redress of grievances.

·         No guidelines have been established for return to normal.

·         Misinformation: Models are consistently wrong, and data used for assumptions are not explained to the public.

·         A shift of governance to bureaucrats — “experts” who contradict one another and themselves almost daily.

VIDEO – CONSPIRACY THEORY OR FACTUAL ?

Sunday, March 22nd, 2020

 

I have debated with myself about posting  this video  as some people consider David Icke a conspiracy theorist.  Many of the points that he makes in this video are very intriguing and plausible.  Since we are close to a global economic crisis, I decided to send it out and you can decide for yourself if you agree with his statements regarding the world’s reaction to the coronavirus.  Nancy

David Icke Explains How the Elite are Using Coronavirus to Reshape the Global Economy

“This coronavirus hysteria gives them an excuse to do what they’re doing, and the consequences of what they’re doing is to dismantle the world economic system.” – David Icke

On Wednesday, David Icke appeared as a guest on London Real to discuss his perspective on the coronavirus and the global lockdown happening right now. The greater implication, he says, is that while people are in a state of fear, they are passively allowing increasing authoritarian controls over their lives, and that this new power grab will not be rolled out when the crisis ends.

The types of government totalitarianism that are being pushed amid the coronavirus outbreak include the encouragement of going cashless, mandatory vaccinations, and most importantly, vast economic controls which we have never seen before this event.

“The way the whole economic system is being shut down is suicide. What happens when it reaches a point where in its present state it cannot survive?” – David Icke

In most US states, local governments have closed down restaurants, bars, hair salons, and coffee houses against the interests of business owners as a means to stop the spread of the coronavirus. As a result, millions of people have already lost their jobs and are unsure about whether they will be able to pay rent. Governments claim that without extreme measures, many more will die, and hospital beds will overfill.

“You have to keep the reaction in proportion to the problem,” David says. “so maybe more needs doing in parts of Italy.

VIDEO – CULTURE OF CORRUPTION IN THE DEPTH OF THE SWAMP

Monday, March 16th, 2020

 

This is an incredibly shocking  video of a talk that Adam Andrzejewski, founder and CEO  of openthebooks.com  gave regarding waste, fraud, corruption and abuse in all levels of our  government at a Hillsdale College event .   He names all those that are involved in the abuse of our taxpayer money.   This is not a Republican or a Democrat issue as the corruption is widely spread  throughout  our government. If this level of corruption is allowed to continue, our country will be greatly damaged.   Please share with all your contacts.     Nancy

THE ROOTS OF OUR PARTISAN DIVIDE

Saturday, March 7th, 2020

 

IMPRIMIS

The Roots of Our Partisan Divide

February 2020  • Volume 49, Number 2 • Christopher Caldwell

Christopher Caldwell
Senior Fellow, The Claremont Institute and Author, The Age of Entitlement: America Since the Sixties

Christopher Caldwell is a senior fellow at the Claremont Institute, a contributing editor at the Claremont Review of Books, and a contributing opinion writer for The New York Times. A graduate of Harvard College, he has been a senior editor at the Weekly Standard and a columnist for the Financial Times. He is the author of Reflections on the Revolution in Europe: Immigration, Islam, and the West and The Age of Entitlement: America Since the Sixties.

The following is adapted from a talk delivered on January 28, 2020, at Hillsdale College’s Allan P. Kirby, Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship in Washington, D.C., as part of the AWC Family Foundation lecture series.

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:  And that’s our current party system: the bigots versus the totalitarians.

American society today is divided by party and by ideology in a way it has perhaps not been since the Civil War. I have just published a book that, among other things, suggests why this is. It is called The Age of Entitlement: America Since the Sixties. It runs from the assassination of John F. Kennedy to the election of Donald J. Trump. You can get a good idea of the drift of the narrative from its chapter titles: 1963, Race, Sex, War, Debt, Diversity, Winners, and Losers.

I can end part of the suspense right now—Democrats are the winners. Their party won the 1960s—they gained money, power, and prestige. The GOP is the party of the people who lost those things.

One of the strands of this story involves the Vietnam War. The antiquated way the Army was mustered in the 1960s wound up creating a class system. What I’m referring to here is the so-called student deferment. In the old days, university-level education was rare. At the start of the First World War, only one in 30 American men was in a college or university, so student deferments were not culturally significant. By the time of Vietnam, almost half of American men were in a college or university, and student deferment remained in effect until well into the war. So if you were rich enough to study art history, you went to Woodstock and made love. If you worked in a garage, you went to Da Nang and made war. This produced a class division that many of the college-educated mistook for a moral division, particularly once we lost the war. The rich saw themselves as having avoided service in Vietnam not because they were more privileged or—heaven forbid—less brave, but because they were more decent.

BLOOMBERG SELLS ‘SUSTAINABILITY,’ BUT BUYER BEWARE

Wednesday, March 4th, 2020

 

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Bloomberg Sells ‘Sustainability,’ but Buyer Beware

Virtue-signaling corporate standards may be better for financial firms than they are for investors.

By Allysia Finley Ms. Finley is a member of the Journal’s editorial board.  March 2, 2020

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:Yet Mr. Bloomberg’s ultimate goal is to encode his standards in federal regulation. In his campaign proposal for financial reform, he says he’d urge the Securities and Exchange Commission to adopt a rule “requiring companies to publish information on the racial and gender composition of their boards, senior executives, hiring, pay and procurement,” as well as “climate risks.” If such a rule were adopted, companies could get sued even for unintentionally misreporting information. Trial lawyers stand to make out big.

Liberals like to say that sustainability is good for business—but mainly for those promoting it.

  

Michael Bloomberg became one of the world’s richest men by creating a financial software and data-analytics business to assist investors. He has since used his wealth to promote progressive causes. Now he’s standing behind a nonprofit financial venture that helps others cash in on liberal corporate virtue. Its name is the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board.

Mr. Bloomberg bankrolled the outfit, which was founded in 2011, to impose his enlightened political and cultural values on American corporations. SASB drew more attention in January when BlackRockCEO Larry Fink threatened to use his firm’s massive ownership stakes to oppose corporate managers who fail to follow the board’s standards.

SASB is modeled on the Financial Accounting Standards Board, which governs how businesses report financial information. It has a nine-member board that sets guidelines on the kinds of “sustainability” information corporations should disclose to investors. This information is supposed to be “material” to a company’s long-term financial performance.

Materiality is essentially a progressive term of art. SASB’s standards vary across 77 industries based on what its “stakeholders”—academics, attorneys, auditors, asset managers and businesses—consider important. Greenhouse-gas emissions are “material” to food and beverage companies but not to those that make consumer goods. Safeguarding customer welfare is important for health insurers though oddly not for airlines or banks.
