Barbarians at and Inside the Gates – 16 November 2015

Muslims at their leisure launched another attack against the West in Paris, on Friday, the 13th of November.  Such attacks were predicted, certain really, as the West has allowed this violent strain of humanity inside its gates.  Most of its cult followers are more than inclined to follow the teaching of Mohammed in the fifth verse of the ninth Sura of the Koran rag which states, “fight and slay the pagans wherever you find them, and seize them, beleaguer them and lie in wait for them in every scheme.”

Polling of muslims who infest America usually yields fairly consistent results.  The most shocking opinion expressed by these muslims is that nearly 25 percent support suicide bombing.  That goes along with half wanting to see America subject to Sharia law, but can we expect anything different from this bunch.

The main stream media (democrat media) and liberal researchers usually inflate their numbers in order to increase their political and cultural importance (the same for homosexuals), but if we use their likely inflated number of about 7 million, then that means there may well be close to two million Bin Laden wannabees lurking in our nation.  Certainly liberals want to increase their numbers as fast as possible as they’re ready made allies in their war on America.

America’s founding religion and ethos tells us to love our neighbor, muslims are compelled by their religion to either kill, enslave or convert at the end of a gun barrel.  Islam is not simply a false Satanic religion, but it is a philosophy of conquest.  Mohammad, its lunatic founder, rose to prominence by waylaying caravans, then as his power and the size of his pirate gang grew, he eventually conquered the middle-east and from there all the way to Western India.

We ignore islam at our peril, it is dangerous because it is being enabled and aided by our domestic enemies, the democrats.  The democrat party is nothing more than an amalgamation of various disgruntled minorities, both real and imagined, who are being “harmed” by traditional American culture and values.  Think about it, the democrat party’s only appeal is to radicalized man hating silly women, blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals and other sexual deviants, girly men, environmental wackos, young people who are products of the liberal public education mills and their latest group, the muslims.

Democrats don’t even bother to make a pretense any longer of being a mainstream political party.  Of course, they claim to be the mainstream and their media constantly echoes that claim, but all evidence and polling indicates otherwise.  Only their incredible ability to lie and their reliance on their propaganda machines allow them to fool enough Low Information Voters to get elected in most areas of the nation.  The only play in the democrat play book is divide and conquer, ginning up hatred in the minds of its disparate groups that white conservatives are out to get them.  The “war on women”, “homophobia”, “islamophobia”, “racism” is just about all they have going for them.

Two of the groups, deviants and muslims, are interestingly polar opposites in most ways except they find their common ground in their hatred for American values.  Their value to democrats, aside from their voting and money, is that they enhance the democrats’ ability to assault and degrade the Judeo-Christian foundations of our nation.  In the democrat camp at this moment is a race to see who can advocate bringing in the most “Syrian refugees” with Hillary trying to outbid all of the others.  Diluting to the point that America is stripped of the cultural glue that holds it together is the goal of the democrat party.

The battle for the heart, soul and survival of America waged fiercely Monday, November 16th, as the democrats doubled down on their intent to bring as many savages as possible into our nation while the republican spines stiffened considerably.  19 states, all led by republican governors and one state, New Hampshire, led by a democrat called for no resettlement in their states.  Six governors, all democrats, proclaimed they welcomed “refugee” resettlement into their states.

Obama still has his own ban on allowing any true refugees from the war torn middle- east, the Christians, from entering the nation at all.  The Christians in these arab countries are being exterminated, targeted by all muslim sides of their civil war.

Obama, mouthing his usual nonsense (every time his lips move) today said it was “shameful” that our nation would have any sort of religious tests in considering these “refugees”, “That’s not American…That’s not who we are. We do not have religious tests to our compassion.”

Democrats don’t believe in the dangers of islam, in fact, as you know, they all refuse to use even the term “radical islam” (as if there’s any other type).  The administration maintains that any refugees resettled into our midst will be carefully screened and vetted.  This consists of two interviews with the “refugee” himself conducted by drones from the State Department and Homeland Security.

I can just imagine how these interviews go,

“Are you a terrorist?”   “Huhhhh, no”

“Have you ever been or do you plan to engage in terrorist activities?”       “Huhhh, no”

“What will you do to contribute to America?”      “I will be a good voter for democrats.”

“Excellent, welcome to America!”

________________________________________________________________________

“If you have a handful of people who don’t mind dying, they can kill a lot of people”, Obama said today, so just how many “handfuls” are going be imbedded into the tens of thousands of these “refugees” the democrats want in this country and their liberal European counterparts want in theirs?

The United States Government War on Coal -11 Nov 15

Any right thinking, logical and rational American knows that our government at the moment is controlled by radical leftists.  A government headed by an anti-American hack who was an accomplished street hustler, but as president, not so much.  The danger he and his administration and the entire democrat party, for that matter, pose to our nation is grave.  Whether we will survive intact as the nation resembling America as we have known it is in serious doubt.

Much of this site will deal with the global warming scam and plot that socialists in Western countries have adopted to be their means to near total control over our lives.  While the nation is up in arms about the rogue and radical Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with its assault on all Americans and on all reliable energy sources, beneath the national radar is another Agency that is steadfastly working to cripple coal and now the Federal Government has ratcheted up its assault on coal through its Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA).

MSHA created by congress to administer the provision of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977, enforcing federal mining laws in our nation’s coal and mineral mines and facilities.

Apparently, the Government believing that rank and file MSHA mine inspectors have not pounded on the coal mines enough, haven’t shut enough of them down, haven’t collected enough hundreds of millions of dollars in penalties so it has begun engaging in a despicable program of propagandizing it’s inspectors.

MSHA, like other federal and state agencies and various corporations and organizations has it’s own intranet.  “An intranet is a private network, accessible only to an organization’s staff.  Generally a wide range of information and services from the organization’s internal IT systems are available that would not be available to the public from the internet.”  (Wikipedia)  All MSHA mine inspectors have computers and the MSHA Intranet is there as a source for various resources inspectors must access on occasion as they perform their work.  It is a recent development that MSHA has been posting propaganda on its intranet.

MSHA also maintains a public website where mine operators, miners and civilians can access a great deal of valuable information.  However, it does not (yet) post the rank propaganda that is now showing up on its private intranet.

A November 3, 2015 opinion piece found on the CNN.com website was posted on the MSHA intranet entitled, “We’re Winning the War Against Coal” written by Michael Bloomberg and Michael Brune.  CNN, a liberal organization in its own right, at least had the decency to preface the article with a disclaimer that

”Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is the U.N. secretary general’s special envoy for climate change and cities and Michael Brune is executive director of the Sierra Club. The opinions expressed in this commentary are theirs”

No such disclaimer was found on the MSHA intranet as it reposted the opinion piece.  What makes this fantasy masquerading as fact so egregious is that it is our tax dollars which obviously finances MSHA and pays the salaries of MSHA personnel.   Obviously the message of the opinion is designed to inculcate anger if not rage against the very industry that the federal inspectors are charged with overseeing.

We begin dissecting this hit piece against one of the great energy sectors of our nation with the very title itself, “we are winning the war against coal”. These federal employees supposedly are the servants of “the people” and I don’t recall any citizen uprising demanding the government war against them.  Only in Obama-land does the government war against its own citizens and indispensable industries.

The propaganda begins with the issue that liberals think will sweep them to permanent power over our lives,

“Here’s some good news that many Americans may not realize: Domestically, we are winning the fight against the carbon pollution that drives climate change.  And by doing so, we are giving President Obama a strong hand to play when world leaders gather at the U.N.’s climate summit in Paris in five weeks to negotiate a global agreement to limit carbon emissions.”

Of course “carbon pollution”, is not pollution, carbon dioxide is the gas of life.  Without carbon dioxide there would be no life on the planet at all.  Liberals like to talk about man-made global warming as an established fact but saying it over and over again doesn’t make it so.  A corrupted “science” community making its grave pronouncements of doom as it feeds at the government trough of our tax dollars doesn’t make it so.  A corrupt education system designed to create liberal voters teaching young minds that man-kind, especially the United States, is destroying the planet doesn’t make it so.  The temperature of the world has remained unchanged for the past 17 years, yet the liberals are still stuck on stupid.

Poll after poll has shown that not only in the United States but worldwide, concern for global warming or its derivative “climate change” ranks near the bottom of concern for average citizens.  The boy simply cried wolf too many times.  Over the past three decades that the global warming scam has been afoot we have passed date after date that the purveyors of doom said we were to be destroyed or seriously affected by catastrophic changes in our environment.  The no more snows, the increased hurricane activities, the rising oceans creating millions of “climate refugees” just didn’t materialize.

“To understand how the White House finds itself in this position of strength, think back to 2010, when Congress failed to pass a cap-and-trade bill. That seemed to end any hopes of making major reductions in emissions and demonstrating American resolve to the global community. But in fact, even though the bill did not become law, the United States has already exceeded the carbon reduction goals it aimed to reach.

 

According to a study being released Wednesday by the Sierra Club and Bloomberg Philanthropies, 2015 U.S. economy-wide carbon emissions are even lower than they would have been had the bill passed. In fact, the United States can now say it has led the world in reducing carbon pollution over the last decade…

A primary driver is that over the past five years 130 coal-fired power plants have been retired and another 70 are preparing to retire over the next few years.”

So? If this is true, then why the mad rush to further degrade our nation’s electrical power supply and decimate coal producing states and regions?  Obama and his EPA have already done more than enough to seriously damage our energy supply and reliability, yet they want even more.  Developing countries, especially China are putting coal fired power plants on line as fast as they can build them, in China about one per week.  Obama puts our nation at risk while China forges ahead to meet the energy needs of its growing country with reliable coal.

“…the decline in coal use also stems in large measure from citizens demanding cleaner air and action on climate change. People across the country joined with the Sierra Club and many other organizations in standing up for their right to breathe clean air. Five years ago, coal pollution helped kill 13,000 Americans a year. Now, that number is down to 7,500.”

So where is this hue and cry from Americans demanding cleaner air and action on climate change?  Less than a fourth of Americans in a recent poll express significant concern for climate change.  On the world stage, a recent UN poll of citizens around the world found that concern for climate change ranked dead last on a list of 16 areas of concern.  Considering the all-out 24/7 propaganda blitz by the democrats and their media and the liberal education mills for the past 25 years or more, only reality has prevented a complete mental programming of Americans to accept this hoax.

The real truth is that American air quality has shown drastic improvement year and year for the past half century.  Depending on which “study” conducted by agenda driven “researchers” we consider, coal pollution kills between 13 to 30 thousand Americans per year.  Liberals claim that CO2 causes global warming which causes ozone smog which causes asthma which kills all of these Americans.  Yet ozone levels have continually declined over the past few decades while diagnosed asthma illnesses have increased.  There is no correlation between the two.  Might it be that Americans are unhealthier, fatter and less active than previous generations and these factors along with better diagnosis or expanded definition criteria have led to an “increase” Americans suffering and dying from asthma?

The EPA created a dire hazard from thin air (no pun intended) by claiming that Particulate Matter (soot) equal to or less than 2.5 microns or smaller (PM2.5) kills Americans “prematurely”.  Yet there is no proof for this.  Studies conducted at the University of North Carolina and Harvard refute this.  The EPA relied on the Harvard study in its pronouncement of doom, however, the data of the Harvard study itself indicated that there was no significant risk to the population for PM2.5.

The EPA claims that these premature deaths are caused by exposure to PM2.5 (most caused by burning coal of course) at concentrations beginning at 35µg/m3.  As you may recall, China had to temporarily shut down its local coal fired plants to clear the smog from the area of Shanghai for the Olympics it hosted.  The Chinese report that the PM levels typically of Shanghai is around 600µg/m3, yet the city enjoys an average life expectancy of 82.5 years, much higher than US cities.

Make no mistake, there is a war on coal.  It is being waged by those who would see the United States revert back to stone age living standards.  Our nation for decades has reduced all pollutants, our air and water gets cleaner by the day.  The issue isn’t science, the science truly is settled.  Puny humans do not alter the climate or weather.  The global warming or climate change movement is just that, a movement, a religion, a cult.  It’s all about politics and control.  It is the line between those of us who value liberty and prosperity on one side and an opponent on the other that craves control over our lives.

Advances in coal technology continues and it’s quite amazing.  According to the Institute for Energy Research

“One factor in improving air quality has been the pollution-control technologies used by coal-fired power plants. Today’s coal-fired electricity generating plants produce more power, with less emission of criteria pollutants, than ever before. According to the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), a new pulverized coal plant (operating at lower, “subcritical” temperatures and pressures) reduces the emission of NOx by 86 percent, SO2 by 98 percent, and particulate matter (PM) by 99.8 percent, as compared with a similar plant having no pollution controls. Undoubtedly, air quality will continue to improve in the future because of improved technology…

… Between 1970 and 2006, SO2 emissions in lbs per million Btu were reduced by almost 80 percent and NOx emissions in lbs per million Btu were reduced by over 70 percent. Between 1970 and 2006, total SO2 emissions were reduced by about 40 percent. Between 1980 and 2006, NOx emissions were reduced by almost 50 percent.”

Liberals are good at only two things, lying and hatching plans to destroy the United States.  The “war against coal” hit piece goes on to say

“Moreover, the phase-out of coal in the United States has only just begun. Our analysis of the new data shows that once all planned and targeted coal plant closings are factored in, the United States will exceed the Obama administration’s flagship pledge to cut electric sector carbon emissions — even if no other actions are taken — 32% by 2030.”

All at the expense of American industry and American lives.  New England over the past two years has forced the closing of several critical coal fired plants to rely on alternate power sources.  Supposedly when crunch time comes, whether a hot or cold spell, it intends to buy electric power from Canada which itself already is plagued with black and brown outs due to its own precarious ability to meet its own needs.

When MSHA republished this hit piece it attacks the Republican party, the party that overwhelmingly won the last election and controls congress.

“There will always be U.S. elected officials who seek to protect special interests, but they are fighting an irreversible trend, and they should be focused on helping workers from the coal industry find new opportunities.”

Apparently, MSHA leadership is attempting to encourage its rank and file inspectors to focus on helping coal mine workers to “find new opportunities” by putting their coal mines out of operation.  Americans expect law enforcement to be fair and impartial and not be motivated by a leftist agenda to destroy their livelihood and put them on the unemployment line.  Furthermore, its rather surprising that a federal agency that is budgeted by congress, would attack and insult the party that controls congress and the agency’s budget.

Robert H. Jackson, FDR’s Attorney General at the time in a speech to federal prosecutors on April 1, 1940, made a very powerful observation and warning that is very appropriate to the subject of this essay.  While he is specifically speaking to federal prosecutors, the concerns and principles apply to all government law enforcement including those that enforce our nation’s mining laws.  Substitute MSHA mine inspector for “prosecutor” and I think the point will be made very clear

“If the prosecutor is obliged to choose his cases, it follows that he can choose his defendants.  Therein is the most dangerous power of the prosecutor:  that he will pick people that he thinks he should get, rather than pick cases that need to be prosecuted.  With the law books filled with a great assortment of crimes, a prosecutor stands a fair chance of finding at least a technical violation of some act on the part of almost anyone.  In such a case, it is not a question of discovering the commission of a crime and then looking for the man who has committed it, it is a question of picking the man and then searching the law books, or putting investigators to work, to pin some offense on him.

 

It is in this realm—in which the prosecutor picks some person whom he dislikes or desires to embarrass, or selects some group of unpopular persons and then looks for an offense, that the greatest danger of abuse of prosecuting power lies.  It is here that law enforcement becomes personal, and the real crime becomes that of being unpopular with the predominant or governing group, being attached to the wrong political views, or being personally obnoxious to or in the way of the prosecutor himself.”

It’s obvious that Obama and all liberals hate coal, heck they hate just about everything, especially anything pro-American or pro-civilization.  This hit piece on American energy and coal has no place on a government intranet designed only for its federal mining law enforcers to read and be motivated by.  One can only assume it was the upper political echelon of the federal agency that was brazen enough to post this sort of propaganda.  There is a war for the heart, soul and survival of this nation.  We are in an era where the government itself is at war with the nation’s own citizens.

DO WE NEED A REVOLUTION?

Revolution – a forcible overthrow of a government or social order in favor of a new system – conjures up images of a banana republic where the “strongman” overthrows the existing government at the end of a gun and institutes totalitarian control over the hapless nation.  Revolution in the United States brings to our remembrance our own “Revolutionary War” where we did, indeed forcibly overthrow the British government and instituted ultimately our constitutional republic that served our nation very well for nearly two centuries, with a hiccup or two along the way.

So, why do we need a revolution now?  Are we at the critical crossroad that a forcible overthrow of our government is required?  Aren’t we still the United States of America, still a constitutional republic?  Well, are we?  Is our government as currently constituted the government our founders envisioned and put in place?  Is our social order of the kind that served our nation very well for most of its history?  If your answer is NO to both of those questions, then what options do we have to return to what we once were?  We have only two choices, we can either change through the ballot box or through a forced change by unconventional political means.

There is a battle that has raged for some time in our nation, a battle that traditional Americans at first scoffed at, then gradually began to understand as all that made this nation great has been witnessed to have been stripped away, one plank at a time.

Pat Buchanan warned of the war that has been thrust upon us by those who want to transform America during his 1992 Republican National Convention speech when he said,

“Friends, this election is about more than who gets what.  It is about who we are.  It is about what we believe and what we stand for as Americans.  There is a religious war going on in this country.  It is a cultural war, as critical to the kind of nation we shall be as the Cold War itself.  For this is war is for the soul of America.”

As you may recall if you’re old enough, Mr. Buchanan was roundly scoffed at by democrats, their media and the republican establishment types.  They viewed as foolishness, Mr. Buchanan’s assertion that a “war” of this sort raged within our borders.  Now, nearly a quarter century later, recreational drug use is legal in two states, sodomy has been legalized and of course recently the “right” to marry has been granted to homosexuals by Supreme Court diktat, while Christianity, the founding ethos of our nation is increasingly being criminalized.

This and subsequent writings really aren’t intended to address silly liberal arguments intended to appeal to their cult followers.  This site is not a racist sight.  Great Americans of all races and persuasions do participate in what I call traditional America and are as offended as I am at what our nation is quickly becoming.  Yes, many of our founding fathers were slave owners.  Slavery was a very common practice in all corners of the world.  The serious minded knows that it was almost exclusively British and American Christians that led the battle against the scourge of slavery which finally ended it in the civilized west.

Yes, we concede that our United States Constitution allowed for slavery and yes, African slaves were only counted as 3/5ths of a person which liberals would deceptively claim meant that they were something less than human.  However, the serious and truthful mind knows that fraction was intended to limit the total population of the slave holding states and thus reduce their number of congressmen.  It was intended NOT to allow more political power to reside in the slave states unfairly, simply off the backs of their slaves.  Yes, we concede that the democrat party was the party of slavery and the lighter but still ugly subjugation of the African population following the Civil War for nearly a century until various infringements on their rights as citizens were finally abolished a half century ago.

The United States is not heaven, it has always been populated by fallible men, but men like the world has never known before in such a concentration in one place.  Men that had a vision to create something very unique, something very powerful as it unleased the unlimited potential of humanity in an environment of freedom and peace under the morally straight structure of Christianity.  For all of its real and imagined flaws, nothing has ever existed in the annals of history like the United States of America.  Liberals destroy it at their peril and the peril of the whole world itself.

It was Robert H. Jackson who said,

“whenever we reproach our own imperfections, as we ought often to do, we must not forget that our shortcomings are visible only when measured against our ideals, never when put beside the practical living conditions of the rest of the world. We have by Constitution, by legislation, and by judicial decision translated the Declaration out of the language of abstract philosophy into the idiom of everyday living. We have validated democratic principles by our success.”

Is there a need at this moment in time to radically alter the present course of our nation?  Those who have their eyes open, I believe, will say yes.  Following chapters will present the case that drastic measures are now needed before the grand experiment known as the United States of America comes to an end.  The clock is striking midnight and the bell has pealed out 11 tolls of the 12 already.

Liberalism is the disease, I am the Cure
