The prudent see only the difficulties, the bold only the advantages, of a great enterprise; the hero sees both; diminishes the former and makes the latter preponderate, and so conquers.
- Lavater, Swiss Theologian and Mystic (1741-1801)
Back when Ferguson was going up in flames, I asked a simple question: Why did Governor Nixon let Ferguson burn? To recap:
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon had the National Guard mobilized a week in advance, yet that fatal night when the grand jury’s decision was read, the Guard was nowhere to be found.
As Ferguson Mayor James Knowles saw his city burning to the ground, he was desperately trying to reach the Governor or anyone else in State Government to plead with them to bring in the Guard. Not even a single call was answered. Mayor Knowles called it a “complete abdication of responsibility by Governor Nixon.”
Now in that case, the mayor slithered his way out of being held to account for his abdication of duty because no one knew if it was gross negligence or if he was acting as a silent accomplice, but this time, we have yet another Democrat in the mayor of Baltimore, just plain stupid enough to admit in front of all the world that she was willing to give the rioters sections of the city to burn and loot and rampage at will.
We also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well.
I have four points to make.
- Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, all three of them changed the world and the one thing they had in common was a true belief in the power of peaceful protest. When people were protesting peacefully in places like Selma, Alabama and the vast majority of law-abiding citizens at home saw video of those peaceful protesters on the one side and the firehoses and snarling dogs on leashes on the other side, anyone with a heart was rooting for the peaceful protesters. Guess what? You just put the majority on your side.
- Barack Obama should return his Nobel Prize. As the first black president, Barack Obama had a unique opportunity to change race relations but instead, alongside his buddie Al Sharpton and Eric Holder, he’s done more to widen the racial divide than anything. Would it really be that hard for the president to say, yes, black lives matter and innocent black people killed by the police are tragedies, each and every one of them, but maybe we, as the black community, should also focus on the fact that 93% of our own people are killed at the hands of our own people?
- When Governor Nixon failed to send in the guard, when Mayor Rawlings-Blake green-lighted sections of her own city to be burned and looted, they weren’t helping spotlight the innocence of alleged black victims of police shootings, what they really were doing is making all the people outside of Baltimore say, we need more guns and more police to make sure the hooligans are kept at bay from where we live.
- When you make a conscious decision to give the rioters free reign to burn and loot and let them destroy all that’s best and good about your communities, what you’re really doing is you’re telling the corporations that brought jobs into the community, maybe you should think twice about ever coming back. When you come right out and say, we’re going to give you some space to destroy things, what you’re really doing is stomping on the hearts of hard working local entrepreneurs who had a dream to build a business and built it, and brought jobs to the community. You are sending hard-working citizens who actually want to make an honest living straight to the unemployment line. You’re encouraging people to “express themselves” by smashing windows and fire bombing the cars of people who had nothing to do with any of this. Oh yeah, don’t worry you might say, insurance will take care of it. Guess who is the first person to fall behind or get dropped by their insurance companies? The poor. And for the people who actually were shelling out the money to pay for their insurance premiums, if you’re still living somewhere in the adjacent zip codes, guess how much your premiums are going to be going through the roof?
When we were watching the L.A. riots in 1992, my dad said something that will always stick with me: “You don’t shit in your own tent.” Nothing says stupid like trying to make a point by burning down your own neighborhood.

On his first day in office, President Barack Obama ordered federal officials to “usher in a new era of open government” and “act promptly” to make information public. The White House blog vowed that it would be “the most transparent administration in history.”
It sounded like CHANGE was really coming with this new administration, but Obama wasted no time in completely abandoning all his lofty pledges of transparency.
The first promise broken was the Obama administration’s vow that the entire Obamacare debate in Congress would be broadcast on C-Span. The promise was abandoned completely, with the vast majority of the details of this legislation controlling 1/6 of our economy worked out in backroom deals with insurance companies, big pharma and the labor unions.
Obama also pledged that all legislation would be posted online for public review for five days before any votes would be made. It took the administration only five months to renege on that promise.
Then came the revelations that 19 out of 20 cabinet-level agencies under the Obama administration have failed to follow the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act, thereby disobeying the law that demands disclosure of public information. The Obama administration is now widely condemned as the worst administration on FOIA.
Under the Obama administration, we’ve also seen an unprecedented which hunt against whistle blowers, with Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department indicting six government workers under the act for leaking information. If that doesn’t sound like a lot, consider that until President Obama took office, there had been only three such cases in U.S. history.
All the more alarming is the cavalier way the law has been used to go after people who neither spied for other governments nor passed on classified information for financial gain. Previously, its harsh provisions were reserved for egregious crimes such as those of the double agents Aldrich Ames and Robert Hanssen. Five of the six recent cases the DOJ is involved in prosecuting involve leaks to the news media, most of which were by people who say they believed they were blowing the whistle on waste, fraud and abuse in government.
It’s just four of the many ways in which the Obama administration that promised to be “the most transparent in history” has become the most secretive and conniving government we’ve ever seen.
It’s yet another example of how the voters of America were sold a false bill of goods with all those lofty promises Obama made as a candidate. In reality, the campaign that marketed Obama in one-word slogans of HOPE and CHANGE turned out to be be and administration of FRAUD and SHAM.

You may have heard the story of four loyal Democrats, charged with nothing more than just doing what Democrats do:
In Indiana four St. Joseph County Democrat officials have had felony charges filed against them for allegedly forging Obama primary petitions during the 2008 election.
Authorities charge that the scheme to submit the fake petitions for Obama was hatched at the local county Democrat headquarters.
source: Canada Free Press
Under state law, presidential candidates need to qualify with 500 signatures from each of Indiana’s nine congressional districts. Indiana elections officials say that in St. Joseph County, which is the 2nd Congressional District, the Obama campaign qualified with 534 signatures; Clinton’s camp had 704.
But the signatures, which were certified by the elections board, were never challenged. If the number of legitimate signatures for Obama or Clinton fell below the legal requirement of 500, they could have been bounced from the state ballot. Reports have previously put the number of phony signatures for both candidates at about 150, but state investigators plucked names from the petitions at random and cited only 20 individual alleged forgeries as part of their case. They say their investigation of the petitions continues.

When you consider the fact that voter registration office worker Lucas Burkett has sworn in an affidavit that he was a part of the plan and now is willing to testify against his fellow Democrats and that a great number of people have come forward, shocked that their name and address were used and denying that they ever signed the petition, I think the only real question here is how many forgeries it will ultimately amount to.
Now here comes the irony, and it involves how Barack Obama first got his career in politics started. Get this, Barack Obama won his first election to the Illinois State Senate by challenging each and every signature of all four of his fellow Dems in the primary, ultimately having enough signatures thrown out for each of the four would-be candidates to be barred from the ballot, allowing him to run absolutely uncontested! NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL DEMOCRACY IN ACTION!
Here’s the story:
Alice Palmer, an avowed communist who once attended the 27th Congress of the Communist Party in the Soviet Union in Moscow, is the woman who helped launch Barack Obama’s career. She is now a very angry woman and wants to tell her story to the world.
In 2008, Palmer showed up at the Democratic National Convention in Denver as a Hillary Clinton supporter, still resentful toward Obama for knocking her and three other candidates off the ballot for an Illinois state Senate seat some 13 years earlier by challenging voter signatures.
“The Democratic primary, what I witnessed, was one of the most appalling, disgusting things I’ve ever seen in my entire life,” Hollywood-based digital photographer Michele Thomas told WND in a joint interview with Hollywood film producer Bettina Viviano.
In 1995, Obama saw his opening to run for elected office when Palmer decided to give up her state Senate seat and run for Congress in a special election. She went out of her way to make Obama her handpicked successor.
To get Obama’s state Senate race off to a good start, Palmer arranged a function to be held for a few influential liberals in the district at the Hyde Park home of Weather Underground founders Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.
It’s not likely Palmer would have selected Obama to be her successor in the Illinois Legislature or have introduced him to the Hyde Park political community at the Ayers-Dohrn home unless she saw an affinity between Ayers and Dorhn’s radical SDS Weather Underground history and her own history of openly professed communism and Obama.
After Palmer stepped aside for Obama to take her seat, she suffered an unexpected electoral defeat in the November 1995 Democratic Party primary. After losing the special congressional election, Palmer reversed her decision and decided she wanted her Illinois Senate seat back.
Palmer supporters asked Obama to step aside, but he refused and decided to challenge Palmer’s eligibility for the ballot using what the Chicago Tribune described as the “bare-knuckle arts of Chicago electoral politics.”
Obama hired a fellow Harvard Law School alumnus to challenge the legitimacy of the signatures Palmer received on petitions to qualify for the ballot.
Once he set on the strategy, Obama kept challenging petitions, until he succeeded in getting all four of his Democratic primary rivals forced off the ballot, enabling him to run unchallenged.

Talk about a stab in the back to the fellow commie who got you your start in the first place. It’s appalling, really.
Imagine the injustice that must be felt by the four Dems who Obama bounced from that ticket, learning of what looks like in this case, a legitimately widespread conspiracy of fraudulent signatures and how they must be thinking that if the same medicine had been applied to Obama, Hillary Clinton might have the Indiana ballot and all 72 of those Indiana delegates to herself. Who knows what could have happened from there.
Barack Obama – a guy who challenged every single voter registration he could until he’d knocked all four of his Democrat rivals off the ballot in his first campaign. Can you explain to me why you and your attorney general are suddenly the guys obstructing every state that attempt to address voter fraud?
Unfortunately, both Obama and U.S. Attorney General Eric “There Is No Voter Fraud” Holder were unavailable for comment.

This is priceless. A man walks into a poll location in Washington, D.C. Transcript:
Undercover reporter: Hello
Poll worker: Can I help you?
UR: Do you have an Eric Holder?
PW: [reading out address . . . ]
PW: H-O-L-T-E-R or D-E?
UR: H-O-L-D-E-R. That’s the name.
PW: I do. [Reads address out loud.]
UR: Northwest, that’s the address.
PW: Okay. Please sign your name there.
UR: I actually forgot my I.D.
PW: You don’t need it, it’s alright.
UR: I left it in the car.
PW: As long as you’re in here, you’re on our list and that’s who you say you are, you’re okay.
UR: I would feel more comfortable if I just had my I.D. Is it alright if I go get it?
PW: Sure, go back.
UR: I’ll be back Faster than you can say Furious.
PW: We’re not going anywhere.
UR: Alright, thank you.
I’ve worked five elections here in California myself and it’s the same thing here, in fact, you find voters who are actually disappointed, “you’re not going to ask for my I.D.?” And out of my own disappointment in the lax requirements, I’d often reply something to the effect of, “No, as a matter of fact, you don’t have to show any proof of anything.”
Here’s what I don’t get about this man who became US Attorney General, the man who is supposed to be the chief law enforcement officer of the United States government – why does it seem like all this guy does is thwart every attempt by voters and state legislatures to get the government to enforce the laws of the land?
It doesn’t matter what you think of the immigration laws, Mr. Attorney General, they are the law of the land. If the voters and the elected representatives of a state are sick and tired of seeing the effects of the miserable failure of the Federal Government to enforce our immigration laws, it doesn’t matter in the slightest if you think the existing immigration laws are too harsh. Truth be told, our immigration laws are a heck of a lot more lenient than the immigration laws they have in Mexico, but the point is, you are the chief law enforcement officer in America, your job shouldn’t be to make sure that the laws are not enforced.
And when it comes to voter I.D. laws, what is all this bull about disenfranchisement? Has anyone ever claimed they’ve been disenfranchised by the system because you’re required to have I.D. to get welfare? Does it make any sense whatsoever that the government exercises due dilligence when handing out welfare checks, but when it comes to the elections on which our entire Democracy is based, aw heck, just come on in and give us a name – any name’ll do!
How can you possibly put your blinders on to all the cases of voter fraud in America which cancel out the votes of law abiding citizens? Those are the disenfranchised voters you should be worried about, the ones who played by the rules and cast their votes, only to see their votes cancelled out by dead people voting from the grave and white guys who could have easily cast a ballot as the U.S. Attorney General.
