THIS is Why CNN's Ratings Have Slipped Behind HGTV's!

CNN's Don Lemon




CNN has consistently been one of the most anti-white, anti-cop networks on the scene.

Don Lemon has been one of its most stalwart racial bigots.

In the wake of the recent horrific hate crime in Chicago, in which 4 black teens kidnapped and tortured a mentally handicapped white teen, Lemon said, “I don’t think it’s evil. I don’t think it’s evil. I think these are young people and I think they have bad home training. I say, who is raising these young people? I have no idea who’s raising these young people. Because no one I know on Earth who is 17 years old or 70 years old would ever think of treating another person like that. It is inhumane. And you wonder, at 18 years old, where is your parent? Where’s your guardian?” (http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/01/05/cnns-don-lemon-on-chicago-torture-video-i-dont-think-it-was-evil/)

Seriously? "Bad home training"?

Was that Jeffrey Dahmer's and James Holmes' problem too?

NO! Don downplayed this racial hate crime the SAME way a Klansman would downplay the racial hate crimes of young whites. SAME thing.

It would be nice to replace this corrupt internationalist media with an American media, wouldn't it?

Nat Hentoff (1925 - 2017)




On Sunday, January 8th, 2017, Nat Hentoff, a tireless advocate of the 1st Amendment and for decades, the ONLY reason to pick up The Village Voice died.

He was a truly great writer.

A great way to honor his memory would be through a donation to The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE).

(I have been remiss. I'd posted this to my FB page last week, but haven't been updating here.)

Here's How Dishonest "America's" Media is...



Donald Trump & the Disabled Reporter. The whole truth and not the spin...


The media knew ALL of this and went with this smear anyway. THAT'S how dishonest and corrupt "America's media" really is.



Amazingly Enough...

Trump as "President Elect" has brought more JOBS back to the U.S. then Bill Clinton, G. W. Bush & Barack Obama combined! (http://247wallst.com/special-report/2016/04/19/manufacturersbringingthemostjobsbacktoamerica/)


ANY ONE of them could have done the SAME, by merely threatening to tax and tariff their foreign-made goods, it COULD HAVE been written into NAFTA, GATT, CAFTA, the TPP, etc.

BUT it wasn't.

NOR did "America's MEDIA" champion anything like that. I wonder WHY?

Oh yeah! They're a collective and collectivist mouthpiece for globalists/internationalists that DON'T have the American people's interest at heart.

This Makes me Feel Bad for All People of African Descent Who Love America, Work in and/or Support Law Enforcement...

...Because clowns like these in the CBC seem to be doing their level best to paint Black America as anti-cop and anti-American, when most are NOT! (http://freedomdaily.com/black-democrats-anti-cop-artwork/)

The LIE That President Obama Was Stifled by GOP Opposition



Image result for Barack Superman




In his first two years Barack Obama had a Democratic House and Senate (http://wiredpen.com/resources/political-commentary-and-analysis/a-visual-guide-balance-of-power-congress-presidency/)...and all he got done was ramming through a very flawed healthcare Bill (the ACA).

Likewise, from 2003 to 2007, G W Bush had a Republican House and Senate...and got little done. He did hang Sarbanes-Oxley a ham-handed response to the 2001 financial scandals (Enron, Tyco, Adelphia, Arthur Andersen, etc. which resulted in the vaunted "Jobless Recovery."

Now, Trump will have at least 2 years with both Houses of Congress in GOP hands. Unfortunately for him, the establishment GOP reviles Trump even more than most Democrats...and for better reasons.

Arizona and South Carolina SHOULD do the rest of the nation a favor and get rid of John McCain, who disgraced himself and his Party in the 2008 election and Lindsay Graham, respectively. THAT would be a nice start.

The Difference Between Jobs and Positions














The public-sector is NECESSARY, but must also NECESSARILY be limited...very limited.

Public-sector positions (teachers, firefighters, police, etc.) are paid for by the productivity and profitability of the private-sector.

To date, no country has been able to sustain a strong public-sector without a vibrant private-sector. The poorer a nation is the smaller and less compensated is its public-sector. No government has been able to figure out how to produce food, clothing, cars, computers, housing, etc. outside the private sector.

Venezuela took over that nation’s once private and very profitable oil industry and ruined it, plunging that nation into a socialist-driven nightmare. I know that as far as Socialism/Capitalism go, I’m probably “preaching the choir,” as throughout my own American education I’ve never run across a single educator willing to make the case for Collectivism (Socialism, Communism, etc.), but it’s important for us to understand the symbiotic relationship of the public sector to the private sector. That is, the public-sector lives/feeds off the life-sustaining productivity of the private-sector.

For that reason, public-sector workers and officials SHOULD fight to limit, even minimize the public sector’s workforce.

As an example, OVER $1 TRILLION has been pretty much wasted since 1971 on America's "War on Drugs," with judges, prosecutors, court, probation, corrections officers and police officers benefiting the most. That's produced tens of thousands of unnecessary positions in those areas, but drug use has only increased over that period. That’s a failure and a waste of vital resources.

NOT that this $1 TRILLION should have been spent on education, or roads and infrastructure, etc., although the latter could've used some more attention over the past 40+ years, but would've best been left with the taxpaying entities that it was taken from, because there it would’ve been reinvested in expanding our industries, creating more good private-sector jobs and increasing the actual tax revenues of the country.

Private-sector enterprises create products and thus jobs. Jobs are paid employment in the production of goods and services sold and used here and around the globe. Positions are government-created employment that produce no actual revenue. A firefighter who is paid $60,000/year and gives back $25,000 of that compensation back in the form of city, state and local taxes does NOT really "increase the tax revenues," in the sense that ALL of that compensation (that full $60,000) is drawn from tax revenues, so that portion going back into the government in taxes, merely reduces the net cost of that position.

I’ve held a position in the public-sector for over three decades, with deep gratitude for the private-sector profits and tax revenues that made that possible. That said, and probably because of that gratitude, I’ve never wanted the FDNY to increase its membership. In my view, it SHOULD always remain a small, elite workforce of people dedicated to fighting fires and responding to emergencies within that City. The same should be said for all other public-sector departments.

I support the idea that Municipalities should live up to the promises they’ve made in the form of pension and benefits. It’s hard to support the idea that a Municipality should be able to enter into poor deals that eventually threaten to bankrupt that Municipality and allow those Municipalities to then back out of those bad deals. That amounts to negotiating in bad faith in its earlier contract deals. That said, politicians SHOULDN'T be allowed to use bankruptcy threats or State Constitutional Conventions to abandon earlier deals made in good-faith.

However, bad deals that overburden taxpayers and are unsustainable shouldn’t ever be allowed to be made. We need politicians to consistently put taxpayer funds ahead of public-sector demands. Either that, or perhaps all public-sector contracts should be cleared via public referendum.

The public-sector needs the private-sector. It simply can’t afford to become the enemy of the private-sector.
