DOES THE DEMOCRAT PARTY BELONG IN JAIL? Print E-mail

Friday, 11 April 2008

It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress. - Mark Twain (1897)

Twain's humorous quip, unfortunately, is all too close to the current reality. "Willful misconduct," a criminal offense, is legally defined as "intentionally doing that which should not be done or intentionally failing to do that which should be done, when knowing that injury to a person will probably result, or recklessly disregarding the possibility that injury to a person may result."

Congress, by failing to act in the case of a clear and present danger to parts of the American financial system, could reasonably be considered engaging in "willful misconduct." And here is why.

DEMOCRAT PATRIOTISM Print E-mail

When Democrats in the 43rd state legislative district in suburban Seattle met April 5 to select delegates to the state convention, they refused to begin their deliberations by saying the Pledge of Allegiance:

"At the mere mention of doing the pledge there were groans and boos," wrote Web logger Eli Sanders, who attended the caucus.  "Then, when the district chair put the idea of doing the pledge up to a vote, it was overwhelmingly voted down.  One might more accurately say the idea of pledging allegiance to the flag...was shouted down."

The 43rd is part of the congressional district represented by Rep. James McDermott (D-Wash), who just before the start of the Iraq war made a trip to Iraq to criticize U.S. foreign policy...

BLIND, DEAF, AND DUMB JOURNALISM IN IRAQ Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Thursday, 10 April 2008

"Disregard what we told you last week." 

"Mainstream" journalists in Iraq haven't said that in so many words.  But the stories they're writing this week say it implicitly.

On March 31, six days of fighting between Iraqi government forces and the Iranian-backed militia nominally headed by the Shia cleric Moqtada al Sadr subsided when al Sadr asked for a cease fire and his forces abandoned the battlefield.  We were told at the time the government of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki had suffered a humiliating defeat.

But this week's stories make clear that Mr. Maliki is not acting like someone who has suffered a humiliating defeat, and Mr. al Sadr is not behaving like someone who has won a big victory.

That's because Moqtada's "Mahdi Army" has been getting its clock cleaned - to the dismay of our journalists.

THE ISLAMIC OPPRESSION OF CHRISTIANS IN EGYPT Print E-mail
Written by Jesse Petrilla   
Friday, 11 April 2008

I have recently returned to the United States from Egypt where I was on a fact-finding mission to see what life is like for non-Moslems who live under Islam.

What I saw was a dire situation of oppression and discrimination that many in America and the West have all but ignored. A place with rampant police brutality and corruption, where non-Moslems are second-class citizens at best, who are brutally victimized on a daily basis.

All this in a nation which is a popular U.S. tourist spot, and has been the recipient of American aid in excess of $28 billion in the last three decades. I wanted to learn what life would be like if our enemies and their allies got their way.

What I saw was an example of the harsh life in store for future American generations in Islamic-dominated regions of the U.S. if we do not work to bring attention to the issue of Islamic oppression now at this critical time in American history.

RACISM Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Joel Wade   
Friday, 11 April 2008

The two Democrat presidential candidates are each running on their genetic identity.

That they are both from the party of Identity Politics is no surprise at all. That they are exposing the hypocrisy and some of the creepy elements of what amounts to tribal warfare is a truly wonderful thing, as I wrote last week. How they are handling this, and what this allows and fuels for some people of other tribes is not so wonderful.

I don't care what race you are, racism from any corner runs counter to American ideals, and I personally have no tolerance for it. I want to clear up something about race, in the hopes that we can stay focused on what really matters: the primacy of liberty, individualism, the Enlightenment principles of reason, and the Christian belief that every soul matters. These principles in America are the fire beneath our melting pot.

HALF-FULL REPORT 04/04/08 Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler

"Ted Turner Offers To Commit Suicide To End Global Warming."

That should have been the headline for this story, in which the founder of CNN declared:

"We're too many people; that's why we have global warming."

The HFR couldn't agree more with you on this, Ted - with one caveat.  What we actually have is too many people like you.  Anyone who believes there are too many people inhabiting the earth has only one moral and consistent path of action to take:

Start reducing the human population by starting with themselves, i.e., commit suicide.

The world really will be much better off without you, Ted.  Trust us on this.  We don't care how you do it - slit your wrists, drink Draino, whatever - just don't take anyone else along with you unless it's Jane Fonda.

In the meantime, the HFR thanks you for so clearly reminding everyone what an incredible idiot you are, and how every time you open your mouth, you do grave damage to the credibility of the commie causes you mindlessly espouse.

THE FORECLOSURE SCAM AND THE REAL WAY TO CASH IN ON REAL ESTATE Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Friday, 04 April 2008

It's hard to miss the full page newspaper ads - such as in the Washington Post and likely in your local paper as well - blaring about "the investment opportunity of a lifetime" by investing in foreclosures.

"The current rise in foreclosures is an incredible opportunity for you to make incredible real estate deals!" claims the WaPo ad. 

All of these ads are scams.  Yet it turns out that there is a genuine solution to the mortgage crisis, and those who understand it will be able to make a lot of money.  Let me tell you how to do it.

THE ECONOMIC STORM AND THE SILVER LINING Print E-mail
Written by Dagny D'Anconia   
Thursday, 03 April 2008

This is my personal view of the current situation:

For decades, US government policies shifted the balance of economic power in favor of  consumers and against producers.  Trade agreements were one sided and unfair to American producers.  The high dollar was like a massive hidden tax on all producers and exporters. 

Monetary policy encouraged other nations to hoard dollars in exchange for their production which was exported to America thus ensuring a load of consumer goods from places like China.  With the drop in the dollar came the sub-prime mortgage crisis and now there is a vast rebalancing of economic forces at work. 

This current situation in the American economy is just the rebalancing in our favor.  By "our" I am assuming that you are not a hedonistic, Chinese goods-craving, unproductive Leftist -- because they are the ones who are going to suffer the most.  Since the mainstream media is all that and more, we can expect unprecedented wailing and gnashing of teeth from them. 

While they wail and gnash, you can benefit financially.  I have been sending out DDI (D'Anconia Direction Indicator) alerts to those TTP subscribers on the distribution list.  In the last six months the DDI has appreciated 24.27 % while the Nasdaq has dropped 15.22% and the DJIA has dropped 13.47%.  Thus the DDI beat the Nasdaq index by 39.50% for the last 6 months. 

So this is an economic tidal wave we can probably ride.

IRAQ HAS BECOME A NIGHTMARE OF DEFEAT FORů Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Thursday, 03 April 2008

"Tokyo, Japan, March 26.  In the opening game of the baseball season here between the Boston Red Sox and the Oakland Athletics, 11 runs were scored."

That headline would be unsatisfying to most sports fans, because it doesn't indicate which team won.  But it is very like most of the reporting of battles in Iraq:

"The deadliest clashes were in Basra, where at least 47 people were killed and 223 wounded in the two days of fighting," wrote the AP's Kim Gamel in a dispatch March 26.

Ms. Gamel was writing about the opening clashes of Operation Knight's Charge, the effort by Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al Maliki to take control of Iraq's second most populous city from Iranian-backed militias, chiefly the Mahdi Army nominally headed by the Moqtada al Sadr.

Fighting subsided after Mr. al Sadr called for a cease fire Sunday.   It is rare in the annals of war for the side which is winning to seek a cease fire.

REJECTING BLACK RACISM AND WHITE GUILT Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Friday, 04 April 2008

Most of such racists as remain in America are black. 

This is because black racism is tolerated, even -- in certain quarters -- encouraged, while white racists receive the scorn and contempt they deserve.  As Jack Kemp said in another connection, "you get more of what you subsidize, less of what you tax."

Black racism will fester and grow as long as racists like the Rev. Jeremiah Wright are treated more gently than racists like David Duke.

Mr. Duke, a former grand dragon of the Ku Klux Klan, has been excoriated by every major political figure, liberal and conservative. But Jeremiah Wright has many defenders -- both among white liberals and his fellow black clergy -- for his views, which he has expressed in more inflammatory language than Mr. Duke employs.

Why the double standard?  The reason, liberals say, is the guilt white Americans are supposed to feel for slavery and segregation.

HOW TO TRANSFORM ZOMBIES INTO THINKING PARTICIPANTS Print E-mail
Written by Mercury Traveler   
Friday, 04 April 2008

This is a story of how I learned to transform a workforce of 1,500 unionized zombies into participating human beings.  It was in a Belgian steel mill in 1963.

Since then I have been able to replicate this transformation of  zombies into thinking participants in different parts of the world.  The basic requirement is human contact beyond all barriers and education.

Given that, the possibility of such transformation is universal, for human beings are human beings.  The limiting factor is culture.  The transformation is far easier in some cultures, far harder in others.

I have found it to be the most difficult and frustrating with Arabs.  Close to the edge of impossibility.  In Asia, I found the best to be...

THE BIND OF LIBERAL VICTIMHOOD Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Joel Wade   
Thursday, 03 April 2008

The Democrat Party today is the result of decades of a strange kind of racism disguised, in Democrats' minds, as "caring."

Obama is no longer a great candidate who happens to be black. He is now the black candidate. Hillary is not a great candidate who happens to be a woman, she is the female candidate. Without his ethnicity or her gender, they are not, either of them, very impressive as leaders, in their background, or in their potential for guiding our country toward anything good.

They are now victims of their own hubris, their own self-righteous posturing of support for oppressed minority groups, and their own attachment to a trauma dynamic of victim-hood in which there are only three possible roles: 1) victim, 2) perpetrator, and 3) savior.

The Democrats have fancied themselves as savior to oppressed minorities, who are seen as the victims of "the American system," "corporate America," "the rich," mean selfish Republicans, racist white males, it doesn't matter as long as it's vague. The emotional pull is more compelling if it is kept nebulous.

Encouraging victim-hood has been a great game for the Democrats for a long time.  But we may be seeing the Democrats' victim-hood game coming to an end.

THE RESURRECTION OF CHRISTIANITY VS. ISLAM Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Friday, 28 March 2008

This past Sunday, March 23, 2008, was the most extraordinary Easter we may see in our lives.  To begin with, we'll never see an earlier one.

Because Easter is dated via the ancient Hebrews' lunar calendar used to identify Passover, it is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Spring equinox of March 20th.  This year, the moon reached full one day later, March 21st, which happened to be a Saturday.  Thus Easter was the next day.

You can't have an Easter much earlier than March 23rd.  One day earlier, in fact, March 22nd.  The last time Easter fell then was 1818; the next time in 2285.  The last time Easter fell on March 23rd was in 1913, and the next time will be in 2228.

So unless you are at least 95 years old, you've never seen an Easter as early as last Sunday, and unless some Durk Pearson life extension technology keeps you around for another 220 years, you'll never see another.

So this Easter was chronologically special - but it was also special for a far deeper reason than that.  In fact, it is the combination of two specific events taking place during this Easter Week that may well signify the resurrection of a dormant Christianity and its resultant defeat of militant Islam.
