“King Barry’s Big Adventure”

by Sandy Stringfellow

It’s undoubtedly true there are more pressing foreign policy issues. King Barry’s abandonment of Israel and the embracing of Islamic regimes come to mind, behavior that’s seemingly fueled by anti-Semitic passion and driven by his inner-Muslim self. But I’m still trying to get over what our King did to their Queen.

It wasn’t the collection of his speeches that he gave Queen Elizabeth II, nor was it the tactless and heavy-handed treatment his wife displayed when in the presence of this British icon; although both incidents were an embarrassment.

After King Barry’s coronation, one of his first tidbits of housecleaning (in between the bevy of executive orders) was to remove the bronze bust of Sir Winston Churchill from the Oval Office and have it shipped back to England.

It was on loan, presented to Bush 43 after 9/11 as a symbolic gesture of the strong bond and “special relationship” between England and the United States of America.

I appreciate and respect Sir Winston’s extraordinary life, and very much like him as a man and a leader. Churchill was a complicated man, and certainly not a man without flaws.

If the highest level of admiration is reserved for those in politics who faced uncommon challenges, yet made bold and decisive moves to save the day while under tremendous pressure, then Winston Churchill was an accomplished politician and a great leader by every significant measure.

Churchill had the courage, the intelligence, and the wisdom to do the right things for the right reasons. There was no vagueness, no lack of philosophical definition or principle; Churchill eschewed the notion of moral relativity.

England has been our staunchest ally for over a century. Our United States Constitution is based on the Magna Carta and English common law. There is no other country with which we have a more profound shared history.

Enter King Barry, the Progressive Marxist avenger, attempting to equalize British Colonial misdeeds against his paternal African ancestors, by administrating a well-placed slap across the face of English royalty specifically, and the English people in general.

For the most powerful political figure on the global stage and supposed leader of the “free world,” that’s not exactly keeping the big picture in perspective. After all, he could have simply moved it to another room.

It does, however, bring us to the point behind King Barry’s self-indulgent and child-like action of returning the Churchill bronze, and the manner in which it was done.

King Barry, Western Capitalist Society, British Colonialism

King Barry has an asteroid-sized chip on his shoulder about every aspect of our western capitalist society, yet he finds room to carry his personal grudge against British Colonialism as well.

Ironically, the Marxist ideology with which King Barry was inculcated throughout his youth via Frank Marshall Davis and into adult life through college, friends, and church, has a far more tragic history in human cost and unprecedented suffering than late British Colonialism.

When Adam Smith wrote The Wealth Of Nations in 1776, he impugned Colonialism.

As Thomas Sowell pointed out in his book The Quest For Cosmic Justice: 

 “Adam Smith, the father of laissez-faire economics, deplored not only the callousness of the rich and powerful of his day, ‘who never look upon their inferiors as their fellow-creatures,’ but deplored also our ‘obsequiousness to our superiors’ and the ‘foolish wonder and admiration’ shown toward ‘the violence and injustice of great conquerors’”.

The British outlawed slave trade in 1807, and ended slavery throughout the British Empire in 1833. It wasn’t until 1898 that Kenya, home of Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., became an East African Protectorate under the British Empire.

History is rich with examples of a British Empire that furthered the advance of civilization, yet no such historical examples exist under Marxist governments.

As unjust as it was for many, latter-day Colonialism was a better example of “a rising tide lifting all boats” than Marxism, in which the outcome is inevitably abject tyranny, with the destruction of civil society and the rule of law.

Progressives And Marxists Promote “Social Justice” As A Prime Motive For Their Repressive Form Of Central Governments

Progressives and Marxists promote “social justice” as a prime motive for their repressive form of central governments, command and control economies, and autocratic use of power.

In Free to Choose, written by Milton and Rose Friedman, one comparative statement addresses the difference between “capitalism” and “social justice”:

“A society that puts equality—in the sense of equality of outcome—ahead of freedom will end up with neither equality nor freedom.

The use of force to achieve equality will destroy freedom, and the force, introduced for good purposes, will end up in the hands of people who use it to promote their own interest.”

Churchill believed, possibly even knew, from his early years on that he was destined to be a leader in his country.

Conversely, it appears that King Barry was selected later in life for his speaking skills, aptitude for prevarication, and his mixed-race heritage, in addition to obvious ideological sympathies with his benefactors.

Progressive Marxist Agenda

Although King Barry may be manipulated by those with greater intellect and net worth, there can be no doubt that he marches in lockstep with their vision of the coming new role for America; just another country equal in respect to every other country in the world at large.

When one looks carefully at the company with which King Barry surrounds himself, and the Progressive Marxist agenda they share, it’s entirely reasonable to be not only suspicious, but genuinely afraid of their collective capacity for inflicting a crippling and permanent level of damage to our glorious republic.

This would have to include the possibility of outright destruction. In fact, many observers would argue that is precisely the goal.

So King Barry the Progressive marches on, in all of his ignominious glory, undeterred in his mission to unite the world in equality of tyranny, starvation, death, and destruction. We’ve seen it all before.

Mission Of Establishing A Progressive Marxist Ideological Nirvana

History doesn’t matter, the laws of economics don’t matter; they only distract from the faux nobility of this kingly demigod on his mission of establishing a Progressive Marxist ideological nirvana.

How wonderful to know that King Barry and his secular geniuses are secure in their ability to understand what’s best for everyone. Manipulating the irregularities and uncertainties of life is their game of leisure; another big adventure for the anointed intellectual elites living in the lap of luxury.

As for the rest of us, we’ll be relegated to shuffle along in wary silence; unable to change our station in life through free will, our options pre-determined.

Ladies and gentlemen, does that sound adventuresome, or does it more closely resemble the enslavement of humanity that King Barry has professed to abhor?

Governor Palin Urges Union Members: Show True Solidarity in Wisconsin

In her Facebook Notes published yesterday, Friday, February 18, 2011, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin urged union members to opt for ‘commonsense’ solutions to the impasse in Wisconsin instead of ‘kowtowing’ to union bosses:

“…My message then and now to good union brothers and sisters is that you have another option. You don’t have to kowtow to the union bosses who are not looking out for you, but instead are using you. You can join millions of other union members in a commonsense movement to help fight for the right causes in our great country – for budgets that share the burden in a truly fair way and for commonsense reforms that take power away from vested interests like union bosses and big business lobby groups, and put it back where it belongs – with “We the People.”

“Racial Policy”

By Robert Arvay

When I was very young, pre-school, I did something that haunts me to this day.

I joined with some other white kids in tossing the “N” word at two black men who worked on a garbage truck.

This was in the Deep South, racially segregated, where “White Only” signs were commonplace.

What haunts me is that the two men had spoken in a very kind manner toward us, but when they heard us taunt them, their facial expressions became crestfallen, sad, and disappointed.

I immediately felt sorry that I had uttered the word. Without having to be told, I immediately discovered how deeply hurtful such words could be. I wanted to apologize, but at that age, I did not have those kinds of social skills. So, I just stood there, knowing that I had hurt two innocent people, for no reason. This was nearly sixty years ago, yet I have never forgotten it.

When I was thirteen years old, my father was offered a well-paying job up North, in New England (Connecticut), and so we moved there. In those days, this was not unlike moving to a different country. The cultures were in stark contrast to each other. In the South, the pace was slow; men tipped their hats to ladies, said “Howdy” to total strangers and posted “White Only” signs at water fountains. I could list a hundred differences.

Up North, things were reversed. People seemed coldly indifferent to those whom they passed on the street. To say “Howdy” was to invite suspicion (What are you up to?). The pace of life was fast and furious. People even spoke too fast for me to keep up with!

The schools up North were racially integrated. On my first day in school, there was a tall black kid, a street tough, and everyone seemed mildly afraid of him. He came to my desk, towering over me, and sternly said (I’m paraphrasing from memory here),

“You from down south.”

“Yes,” I replied.

“They don’t let colored kids in your class?” he asked.

“No.”

“Why not?” asked my classmate.

I said, “because, they’re prejudiced against colored people.” 

He paused, thought for a moment, and then said, “I like that. You just said it like it is. You didn’t try to make excuses or nothin’, you didn’t even hesitate.” After that, even though we had nothing in common, he never let any of the bigger kids pick on me. My naiveté had come in handy.

He paused, thought for a moment, and then said, “I like that. You just said it like it is. You didn’t try to make excuses or nothin’, you didn’t even hesitate.” After that, even though we had nothing in common, he never let any of the bigger kids pick on me. My naiveté had come in handy.

In my home town, Plant City, Florida, there were the proverbial two sides of the railroad tracks. The Negroes (which we politely called them) lived on one side, whites on the other. The city built some housing for some of the blacks; I surmise the funds came from federal money. The homes were singles and duplexes, which were clean and well-kept. This was in a time when some black families lived in actual sheds. (So did some poor white people.)

However, in New England, there were high rise housing projects. Within weeks of moving families into them, the apartment complexes looked almost like war zones. Windows were broken, the parking lots were heaps of litter, and violent crime was rampant. Whites blamed the problems on race, but I could see that there was something very different between northern and southern black people. It was not the race; it was the culture. It was the way the housing projects were managed, or mismanaged.

I served twenty years in a racially-integrated military, where, despite several attempts at quota systems, the eventual outcome was that one could either hack it or not. Racially-selected promotions soon became a farce, as everyone knew who the racial selectees were. It was obvious, but at the same time, people who had been promoted on merit were respected without regard for their color.

These experiences, among others, shaped my attitudes about race. I am a social conservative, and as such, I believe that race should be ignored as a factor in school admissions, hiring, and yes, even in housing. At the same time, I also recognize that while people should be free to express their opinions – yes, even their racial prejudices –I understand that racial discrimination is a pernicious social evil that destroys lives, and weakens the republic. How does one deal with such ambiguity in supporting or opposing specific social policies and laws? Where does one draw the line?

I am not wise enough to say. However, whenever I am asked for an opinion on such matters, I always begin with a vital reference point. And for me, that reference point is centered around two garbage men in Plant City.

“How We Lost the “Leave it to Beaver” Family in America”

Some of you will remember that “All American” television family, the Cleavers. The Cleavers were just about perfect in every way, the epitome of an upper middle class family featuring a wise and patient father, Ward, his wife, June, the ideal wife and impeccably-groomed homemaker in pearls and starched apron and their two sons: the impetuous and misadventure-prone son Theodore “The Beaver” Cleaver Jerry Mathers, Barbara Billingsley, Tony Dowand his older brother, Wally. The television series revolved around the two boys, who were always in some sort of trouble, however, they seem almost angelic by today’s standards. While the Cleavers represented America’s perception of the typical 1950’s family, this depiction of domesticity was a nearly accurate portrayal for this era.   http://www.theboldpursuit.com/jwts-journal/2011/2/7/how-we-lost-the-leave-it-to-beaver-family-in-america.htm

“Young Conservatives: New Patriots on the Rise” by Cynthia Toney

While some young liberals of the 1960’s were “finding” themselves in drugs, free love and violence, 90 young conservatives met at the Sharon, Connecticut estate of William F. Buckley Jr. to lay the groundwork for the first national conservative youth organization, Young Americans for Freedom.

Since that time, America’s conservative youth continue to speak the unabashed truth – for all of us.

Young Conservatives: New Patriots on the Rise

by Cynthia Toney

“Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.” Thomas Jefferson

While some young liberals of the 1960’s were “finding” themselves in drugs, free love and violence, 90 young conservatives met at the Sharon, Connecticut estate of William F. Buckley Jr. to lay the groundwork for the first national conservative youth organization, Young Americans for Freedom.

Since that time, America’s conservative youth continue to speak the unabashed truth – for all of us.

Listed below are a few of the organizations for young people and what they are doing to help keep our Republic strong and sovereign.

Young Americans for Freedom 

The history of Young Americans for Freedom is both longstanding and interesting. Soon after the organization began, it spearheaded the 1964 Presidential campaign of Barry Goldwater, each one helping to define the other. In the 1970’s, the organization started a number of projects to support Vietnam veterans and their causes and  joined forces with the American Conservative Union to form the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

During the Reagan years, Young Americans for Freedom mobilized to support the President’s agenda and defend the administration’s conservative officials and appointees who were targeted by the Left. Never a stranger to international issues, the organization battled Communism and promoted the cause of freedom on college campuses.

The group continues to be in the forefront of the hottest political issues in the current century, leading the crusade to impeach Attorney General Janet Reno, the rally against Eric Holder’s decision to try the 9/11 terrorists as domestic criminals and the opposition to Barack Obama’s nomination of Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court. (www.yaf.com/about/history)

Young Americans for Freedom publishes The New Guard magazine with a volunteer staff. It is supported through ad sales and donations from individuals  and organizations, such as 60 Plus Association and The Heritage Foundation.

The “Sharon Statement,” penned at the organization’s birth, states among its principles: “We, as young conservatives, believe… that the Constitution of the United States is the best arrangement yet devised for empowering government to fulfill its proper role, while restraining it from the concentration and abuse of power…”

Young America’s Foundation

In 1969, Vanderbilt University students formed a group called “University Information Services” to provide other students with conservative ideas not included in their college educations. The group was renamed “Young America’s Foundation” in 1971. The organization’s main goal  is to bring conservative speakers to college campuses. (www.yaf.org)

The Young America’s Foundation mission is to ensure “that increasing numbers of young Americans understand and are inspired by the ideas of individual freedom, a strong national defense, free enterprise, and traditional values.”

The foundation fought for and won a number of notable political battles, including the right of access to Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) programs on college campuses.

It publishes original works such as Columbus on Trial, which was written in response to the attacks on Columbus and the European discovery of America.

Young America’s Foundation began the National High School Leadership Conference, the first of several programs of its kind to assist high school students in learning more about conservative ideas.

In 2003, the foundation launched the 9/11: Never Forget Project to ensure the anniversary of those murdered by radical Islamists is remembered on college and high school campuses.

Young America’s Foundation enjoyed a long relationship with Ronald Reagan, starting when he was Governor of California. Today, the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara “brings conservative ideas to life” for conservative students; teaching young people about freedom, free enterprise, and traditional values.

Generation Joshua  

Often called “GenJ” by its members, Generation Joshua is a Christian youth organization for children aged 11 to 19. Its aim is to encourage young people to learn about history and civics and to become involved in government and politics. Founded in 2003, it is a division of the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA.org). Most of its members have been home schooled.

Generation Joshua “wants America to be a perpetual city on a hill, a beacon of biblical hope to the world around us.” The organization for teenagers seeks “to inspire every one of our members with faith in God and a hope of what America can become as we equip Christian citizens and leaders to impact our nation for Christ and for His glory.”

Efforts by members of GenJ have had an impact on major campaigns and elections, such as the win by Bobby Jindal for Governor of Louisiana. Local Generation Joshua clubs work to improve their communities and can receive training to register citizens to vote. Online courses help youth “understand the history and founding of America.” Two annual summer camps teach attendees leadership skills and provide a better understanding of the political issues of the day.

Generation Joshua is set to “shape the course of American politics.”

Up-and-coming groups worth watching:

The A-Team: Tea Party Movement Club (www.ATeamYouth.org) of Glen A. Wilson High School, Hacienda Heights, California. “The first Tea Party high school movement in America” Mission: Protect American values, fight against socialism, protect democracy, capitalism and stop government overspending.

The Founding Children: The Tea Party for Patriotic Teens All Over America (http://teaparty4teens.org/index.html) based in Arizona. Welcome Message: “Stand up and unite with your like-minded peers to defend and preserve the divinely inspired ideas of our Founding Fathers!”

As Thomas Jefferson said,

“Whenever the people are well informed, they can be trusted with their own government.”
