The “Greater Good…”

Monday, October 6th, 2014

Dear Friends,

 

It seems to me, whenever someone claims something is for the “”greater good”.” it is always for their personal good and against the best interest of the rest of us. Connivers always use such deceptions to get us to act against the interests of humanity, by appealing to our humanity. When humanity is used to lower the lot of Man it is patently evil. This type of falsehood is evident in much of the propaganda we see and hear every day. Politicians calling for banning guns, separation of church and state, censorship, more redistribution, etc… The meme is always that it is for the “”greater good”,” while nothing could be further from the truth. Those of us who are human hearted must always be on the lookout for connivers, who appeal to our humanity, to lower the lot of Man, else we become unwitting pawns of evil.

 

Most people want to do the right thing. We often get caught up in bad things from our impetuosity however. Those who scheme for power know this and exploit those qualities to manipulate us. When they do, and we go along, we become unwitting accomplices in the lowering of our own standard of living, while ceding arbitrary power to evil people. Our desire to help others, coupled with our innate impetuosity and laziness, combine to make us very susceptible to this type of manipulation.

 

Calls for banning guns is one such example. Those who seek to disarm the general populace always arm themselves and their cronies to the teeth. This leaves the rest of us at the mercy of those without mercy. The more we are maneuvered into giving up our guns for self protection the easier it is for a usurper to seize power by the violent use of force. The US Constitution guarantees the Right to keep and bear arms as a bulwark against potential tyranny. The framers of the Constitution understood all too well the propensity of the elite to abuse any power that is given them, and the people’s Right to self defense was to apply equally to an out of control government, as to a murderer. The violent despots however argue it is for the “greater good”… peace.

 

Separation of church and state is another spurious argument that calls for the “greater good”, while actually separating us and our children from the font of goodness, and brings us closer to the pit of despair. Why would someone who is an atheist do good works if there is no God, punishment or afterlife? There is no reason to, why not just live for today? Moreover, why do good at all since the very concept of goodness is based in religious philosophy? Abolish Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism and Judaism and the source for any incentive to do good works is gone. Now that the pernicious intolerant meme of separation of church and state has become ingrained in the zeitgeist, the diabolical elite are moving it a step further, of freedom from religion. The elite are systematically banning Christianity, the philosophical foundation of the US Constitution, our Rights and the reason we are essentially good people. In their intolerance of religion and goodness, they pervert right into wrong, and wrong into right, all by appealing to the “greater good”… tolerance.

 

The Internet has been a boon for free speech. The monopoly of information that the new class progressives once had has been demolished. We are awash in information, information that would never have seen the light of day when the exclusive control of all information, was from the new class progressives at ABC, CBS, NBC, and PBS. The new class is fighting back with subtle, (and some not so subtle) demands for censorship. The British government has openly called for the silencing of “nonviolent extremist speech.” But notice who is called extremist today. Tea party conservatives are called extreme by the new class elite not violent Islamic terrorists. We are supposed to believe, those who follow the law and want government follow our Constitution are extreme, and those who wish to overthrow it by force, if necessary, are mainstream. The elite’s desire to exclude anyone who is not on board with the Fabian socialist/progressive agenda from the marketplace of ideas, is just another call to the “greater good”… inclusiveness.

 

This is why when someone appeals to the “greater good” our radar should go off. Those who actually seek the “greater good” never demand from others, they do it themselves, connivers demand from others that which they refuse to give up. Hypocrisy is the bailiwick of such people. They call for the rest of us to give up our sovereignty while they demand arbitrary power, they look teary eyed into a camera and argue it is for our own good to give up guns while they surround themselves with well armed bodyguards, they claim we are too demanding if we ask them to follow their own laws because their laws are too hard to follow… for them. They argue Christianity should be removed from the public square, while imposing a diabolical agenda that calls evil good and good evil. All the while, they seek exclusive control of information, to render us incapable of mounting effective arguments against their perverted agenda. Done by calls for us to destroy ourselves, our children and our society… all for the “greater good”.

On The Protests in Hong Kong

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

Dear Friends,

 

It seems to me, the protests in the streets of Hong Kong are a testament to the natural human desire to be free, the coming crackdown is the natural desire of the elite to rule with arbitrary power. Hundreds of thousands of people have been marching in Hong Kong for a month to protest the vetting of candidates for election by the Chinese politburo. The people simply want a choice; the elite want power. Given the Chinese government’s history, I worry this latest episode will end in a government crackdown, like Tienanmen square. I pray it won’t, but communists are communists, and their thirst for absolute power is unquenchable.

 

The history of communism is one of slaughter, bloody revolution, violent suppression of the people, atrocities, and crimes against humanity. There is not one chapter of history where communism resulted in anything but human suffering on an unimaginable scale. Today communism has gone underground in most countries. Those who adhere to that evil doctrine now call themselves socialists, (because most of us have forgotten who the National Socialists were), they call themselves Progressives, (because no one remembers the evils Woodrow Wilson visited on the American people) or some other flowery name that implies human heartedness.

 

Communism is anything but human hearted though. The goal of communism is total power. Marxists always come into power at the point of a gun, led by the new class and soldiered by the peasants, once in power they slaughter as many as they can. Fidel Castro was one of the least bloodthirsty dictators of the Marxist ilk, because when he marched into Havana he “only” slaughtered fifty thousand people, 50,000 human beings! Enough to fill a stadium! That is what passes for not bloodthirsty in Marxist circles. The atrocities of Mao with tens of millions starved in forced famines, beat to death in his cultural revolutions, or simply executed, should be taught in schools across the planet, but are not.

 

The new class media always gloss over the atrocities of Marxists because the new class has been indoctrinated in the universities and colleges. Academia hides the crimes against humanity of communists while shouting to the heavens anything a capitalist has done that is bad. The false narrative, that American constitutionalists are Nazis, shows the extent that this indoctrination has gone. Only a profoundly ignorant, or evil, person would make that mistake. The Nazis were the national socialists and got many of their heinous ideas from American Progressives, so much so, that before the second world War, Rockefeller Center had a mural praising Hitler and Mussolini’s national socialism! It was painted over once the war broke out, but the fact such American progressive luminaries so liked Hitler, they would commission a mural in that evil man’s honor, show who is the real Nazis. The Nazis gave credit to Wilson for his eugenics policies the Nazis emulated in their Final Solution.

 

The Soviet Union was famous for putting dissidents into insane asylums. The atrocities of Stalin and Lenin are legendary. North Korea punishes dissent for three generations in internment camps where starvation is rampant and children are encouraged to turn in their parents for food. In Cambodia when the communists captured Phenom Penn, they slaughtered thousands on the spot and marched every man, woman and child into the killing fields, where they methodically murdered millions. Bullets became too expensive, (since the Marxists had destroyed the economy) and so they gave boys clubs, to club people to death, and little girls bread bags, to put over the heads of people until they suffocated!

 

The Marxists that run China have pragmatically given up on the communist economy. They rightly saw the abject failure that always follows communist ideology put into practice. In that they had decades of historic evidence from their own nation as an example. They haven’t given up on the planned economy, or absolute power, but even allowing a modicum of capitalism has led to an unprecedented rise in the standard of living in China. If China were to see a full utilization of the market system, with strong standards regulating a laissez faire implementation, the industrious people of China would quickly make it the most wealthy nation on Earth. By trying to hold onto power the communists will destroy China like the Keynesians have destroyed Japan.

 

Today in Hong Kong the people are protesting the usurpation of their rights by the Chinese communist government. The agreement between Briton and China guaranteed the sovereignty of Hong Kong but only a fool would believe Communists would keep their word. Marxists, socialists and progressives hold themselves to no standard whatsoever, while demanding absolute compliance with whatever the Marxist arbitrarily demands. It will not be long before the Chinese communists roll into the crowds with tanks. Academia will remain silent as they did Tienanmen square, the new class media will downplay the atrocities like they always have, and our progressive leaders will look on with jealousy at the free hand the Chinese communists have. We should all keep the people of Hong Kong and China in our hearts and prayers, and by doing so, we pray for our own liberation from the progressive Marxists that run the rest of the world. God bless Hong Kong and China!

Two Years more for Evil to Flourish…

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Dear Friends,

It seems to me, the tyrants, despots, evil doers and general bad guys, know they have two years to do whatever it is they want, after that the strong likely hood is that Obama will no longer be President and a pro American President will probably hold that office. Unless of course Obama gets a third term. If that were to happen those who seek to expand their empires would have another six years. I am not being facetious I am being realistic. The weakness Obama has shown to the enemies of peace and harmony coupled with the backstabbing he has done to our allies, has made the world less safe for everyone, except for evildoers.

Will Obama go for a third term? Can he go for a third term? The US Constitution bars any President from running for a third term. A Constitutional amendment was put in place after Franklin Roosevelt became President for life. While a Constitutional amendment barring a third term seems like a major impediment for any President, Obama has shown a remarkable ability to ignore Constitutional restraint, his own laws and even basic common sense. Just a few of the scandals that would have been the end for any other President have been, Fast and Furious, IRS scandal, Benghazi, and far too many others to fit in this column. The real question as to whether he can run again is what would the opposition do in that event?

Republicans have shown no backbone whatsoever when it comes to standing up against the unconstitutional and illegal actions of Obama. When Tea party republicans have tried to stand up they have been attacked most heinously by republicans. The unbiased media has a meme going, that the Tea party is evil because they stand for Constitutional restraint and the rule of Law, which keeps the only faction standing in the way of Obama, off balance and marginalized. Since the history of the Obama administration is one of overstepping Constitutional authority without consequence, and with the overt backing of democrats, elite republicans and the unbiased media, the outcry would be vilified and not reported, except in alternative media outlets. So the Constitution’s ban on a third term is very surmountable, making the only real question, does he want a third term?

America’s allies have been attacked, undermined and vilified by the Obama administration. Israel’s best interests have been set aside for the demands of Hamas. Instead of condemning the rocket attacks by Hamas against Israeli schools, a nuclear plant and the civilian population, Obama attacked the Israelis for defending themselves. Remember Obama’s off the cuff remark to Medvedev? That he would have “more flexibility after the election…” Poland still has a bad taste in their mouth over Obama’s unilaterally canceling a treaty with them, to supply Poland with anti ballistic missiles, that decision has come back to haunt them with Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, and naked threat against Poland in his statement, “I could be in Poland in two days…” the list of allies with knives in their backs, put there by Obama, is as long as the enemies of freedom have carnations given them by Obama.

The empires of China and Russia have expansionist aspirations. There is not one neighbor of China that China doesn’t want land from. There was a recent article that over fifty percent of Chinese citizens believe there will be war with Japan within a decade. China has the largest standing army in the world and has a skewed demographic of three men to every woman, which is ideal for starting a war to bring the demographic distortion back into line. Russia’s Putin has aspirations of reclaiming the old Soviet empire. His invasion of Ukraine, an invasion that wouldn’t have happened if Obama hadn’t shown so much weakness, is but the first step in that plan. Every nation that was under the Soviet yoke is quaking at the thought.

The hard core Islamist have began recreating the Caliphate under Obama’s feckless leadership. They have erased the boarder between Syria and Iraq and intend, (if their literature and propaganda are to be believed) on conquering the entire world and placing every human being on it under Sharia law. Obama armed them, has tried mightily to avoid damaging their interests, even as they have religiously cleansed all the areas they have under control. Not only exterminating Christians but Shia and Yazidis. All of which Obama turned a blind eye to, until they sawed off the head of a few new class journalists, and generated outrage in the new class. Obama’s plan to eradicate them is to arm their allies and use a one hundred thousand dollar smart bomb to kill each one individually.

Obama has set the world on fire and is dousing it with gasoline to put it out. He has been the best friend of those who would expand their empires, commit genocide, ethnically and religiously cleanse large swaths of the planet, and at the same time has undermined our allies ability to withstand the onslaught. Obama’s actions have incentivised every despot to get nuclear weapons as fast as possible. Every dictator on the planet knows this and is acting accordingly. Our allies are in retreat regardless of the unbiased media’s propaganda to the contrary. Europe’s economy is collapsing, the European natives are being marginalized and are facing religious persecution, if not extermination, all while Obama cheers it on. That is why I say that the evil doers on our planet understand they have two years to grab whatever they can. Looks like the old Chinese curse will be coming true in the next two years, “May you live in interesting times.” Unless of course, he gets a third term… then it will last longer.

Sincerely,

ISIS and the Real Threat

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Dear Friends,

It seems to me, before any problem can be effectively dealt with, first it must be identified. Many times a problem is so horrifying, even glancing at it is too scary, so the victim avoids identifying it until it is too late. Cancer can be like that. Often we don’t identify an issue, because we simply don’t want the problem to be what it is, we prefer to live in a fantasy, even though we know in our hearts what the real issue is. Drug addiction is an example. There are as many excuses for not looking at the core of a problem as there are problems for the human race to deal with. There is not one example however, where avoiding identifying a problem ever led to a solution, except when the willfully blind died from it.

The problem of Islamic fascism is one such difficulty. Governments around the world have turned a blind eye to it. They think if only they don’t mention it, and send European and American soldiers to die at the hands of ISIS, Al Qeda, Boko Haram or any of the other incarnations of Islamic fascism, the problem will go away. Our leaders believe that if they outlaw Christianity in Europe and the Usand ignore the atrocities of Islam the Islamic fascists will like us and stop killing us. Such thinking is wishful blindness at best showing a total lack of understanding of Islamic fascism and is traitorous at worst.

History explains what Islamic fascism is. The history of Islam is one of conquest. Arabia was full of Christians, Jews and pagans when Mohamed was born. When he died there were only Muslims, everyone else had been converted or killed. Even today all other religions other than Islam are outlawed in Saudi Arabia. Those who hold Mass in their own homes are regularly raided, the worshipers jailed and executed. Some allies eh?

North Africa, Syria, Egypt, Iraq, and Turkey were all Christian lands until the Islamic fascists conquered them in their crusades against Christianity. As the Muslims conquered more land they would raise the churches, melt the church bells down and make them into cannons, to use against the Christians. The bodies of the saints were dug up and fed to the dogs. Christian women were taken from their families, forced to convert to Islam, and sold.

Byzantine couldn’t be conquered until a Christian Hungarian Orban sold high power cannon technology to the Muslims. He built giant cannons to decimate the walls of Constantinople. Those cannon, that couldn’t have been built by any Muslim, opened the city to the invaders. Once the walls were down, the Muslims rushed in, taking anyone they came upon as slaves. The Convent was raided, the Nuns raped and sold into sex slavery. The city’s name was changed from Constantinople to Istanbul, the greatest Christian church at the time, Hagia Sophia, was converted to a Mosque and everyone forcibly converted to Islam.

The much feared Turkish Janissaries were Christian boys who had been given to the Muslims as part of the Jizya tax on Christian nations, so the Muslims would leave those Christian nations who gave their own children alone. Those boys who were pretty were sent to pedophilia to be molested, while the others were converted and trained to fight, against their own families and countrymen. The story of Dracula comes from this time.

He and his brother were sent as tribute to the Muslims. Vlad’s brother was pretty and so went to a pedophilia while Vlad was ugly so was to be a Janissary. Vlad refused to convert and so was tortured unmercifully. After years of torture Vlad escaped and went to his native Romania where he seized the throne. Upon getting power Vlad stopped sending boys to be molested or used against their own families. The Muslims immediately invaded. Vlad met them, defeated them and impaled the Muslim army, leaving a forest of impaled men on the boarder as a warning to future invaders. The next wave of invaders met the same fate. It didn’t take long before the invasions stopped and Europe was protected in the East.

The first war the United States ever fought on foreign soil was against Muslims to stop them taking American ships at sea and enslaving the sailors. When the war was over and the US had won, those sailors who had converted to Islam, wanted to return home but were executed, because once you convert to Islam converting out is death. This is just a small portion of the history of the crusades of Islam against Christianity but it shows the intent of the adherents to Mohamed’s religion. Every Muslim ever taught in any Medrassa knows this history well. Very very few Christians know any of it at all, and what we are taught is watered down with all the gory parts left out, so as not to offend Mulsims. ISIS is doing exactly what Mohamed called all good Muslims to do, strike at the necks of the unbelievers, terrorize us and rape our women as punishment for our unbelief. Today it is called sexual Jihad.

This is what we are fighting, what we have been fighting for fifteen hundred years, and will fight until the last days. It is not that individual Muslims are bad or that they should be denigrated, it is that we must open our eyes to the grim reality of what Islam truly is. When a political leader makes the absurd claim that ISIS is not Islamic, it is because they are too afraid to look at the real problem, they are stupidly ignorant or they are complicit, there is no other possibility, all of which in a sane world would disqualify them to do anything other than swing a mop at McDonalds. A cancer must be cut out. Those that seek to expand Islam at the point of a sword must be exterminated, with extreme prejudice as an example, to limit future wars. Anything less is to invite more bloodshed, more rapes, more children’s lives ruined and more terror. To remain ignorant to a potential mortal threat is to invite disaster… so why do you suppose our leaders are intentionally keeping us blind to it?

Sincerely,

John Pepin

The Fox is Now in Charge of the Hen House.

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Dear Friends,

It seems to me, putting people in charge of protecting something they despise, is not such a good idea if you want that thing to survive. A sane person wouldn’t put Hamas in charge of Israel’s defense, a rational parent wouldn’t put John Wayne Gacy in charge of his or her child’s birthday party and no one in their right mind would make Don Corleone the Attorney General. According to a news story I just read all of the appeals courts in the US are now run by a majority of Democrat appointees. This wouldn’t be bad if the democrat party had not been hijacked by outright socialists, progressives, but it has, and that means people who despise everything our Constitution stands for, are in charge of protecting it.

Control of our Constitution is the reason democrats filibustered Bush appointees. A move that at the time was unheard of. Once the progressives got their man in however they put an end to filibustering appointees. When republicans considered eliminating the filibuster it was called “the Nuclear option” by the unbiased media. When democrats pushed the nuclear button the unbiased new class media cheered them on. Now progressive democrats have filled all the vacancies Bush couldn’t along with those that have opened since Obama came to power.

Progressive philosophy is essentially the same as Marxist, the only real difference is the progressives eschew the violent revolution part of Marxist theory in favor of “progressing” us to full socialism. To achieve their end, a total state where people are the property of the state, the only thing that is off the table is outright revolution. They shun revolution, not because they are peaceful, but because they don’t believe revolution is the best way of getting there. That is why whenever a progressive is asked what is the difference between Marxism and Progressivism, the progressive laughs derisively and refuses to answer.

The difference between national socialism and progressivism/Marxism is the national versus their international nature. The Marxist/progressive believes in world communism, where everyone on the planet lives in their Utopian vision, whereas the national socialist seeks to enslave their own nation to the yoke of communism. The end of both are the same but one wants socialism for their country only and the other seeks it for the entire world. That explains why they hate each other so. They must draw from the same limited pool of people and so are in direct conflict for those potential enlistees.

In order to progress the world to communism the progressive only stops at violent revolution, not at violence. History shows that progressive will lie, cheat, destroy innocent people, undermine societal wealth, and harmony. They will do anything no matter how heinous, that progresses us to their goal. Since they are at heart atheists, and as such have no worry about eternal consequences, there is no limit to their actions. One thing stands in the way of the progressive vision of a united world under communism… the United States. More specifically, the US Constitution. That document is a stumbling block to them.

The US Constitution has provided the United States with the most long lasting republic since Rome, it has resulted in the most prosperous society the world has ever known, most of the industrial revolution’s advances are the direct result of US patent law… that is only possible under the US form of government, people still live in liberty even after over two hundred years of one government, and all of these goods are directly opposed to the progressive agenda.

Progressives learned over a century ago that they need not change the words of our Constitution to undermine it’s effectiveness, all they need do is change the meaning of the words, and it is the court system that interprets the words. Freedom of religion is now separation of church and state, shall not be infringed means limited rights, interstate commerce now means government can regulate anything you do in your own home and on your own land, but their diabolical attacks don’t end there. Progressives now seek to change the freedom of speech to freedom of government approved speech.

Both the Republican and democrat parties are controlled by progressives. The democrat party is totally in the hands of progressives and the republican party’s top echelon are uniformly progressive. That is why Tea party candidates come under the heaviest fire from republicans. The republican elite don’t believe in limited government, their rhetoric is only a means of tricking people into thinking there are two choices, when there is only one… progressive.

The judicial system is the final protector of our Constitution. Most of the heavy lifting is in the Appellate courts. They hear the majority of cases and rule on their constitutionality. Since there are no negative consequences if they actively seek to undermine our Constitution, once a progressive gets that lifetime appointment, he or she can engage in all sorts of mischief. Now that most of the judges on the appeals court are progressive democrats mixed with many progressive republican appointees, the change will come faster and faster. Yup, now that progressives are in charge of protecting Our Constitution, a constitution they despise with every fiber of their being, limited government will soon be history. World communism is the next goal.

Sincerely,

John Pepin

Abuse of Power…

Monday, September 8th, 2014

 

Dear Friends,

It seems to me, changing our Constitution for naked political advantage, is not only corrupt but it actually endangers our republic. This week the Democratically controlled senate is taking the initial Machiavellian steps to amend our Constitution, so they can decide who can give and how much money that can be spent on political and public service campaigns. This is so clearly a dishonest political move, the unbiased media has given it a good leaving alone, so as not to awaken the American people. Since our government prefers to work in the dark of night, passing bills to regulate every aspect of our lives and enrich themselves, I am not at all shocked. They have been playing the despotism game for a century , while we play tiddlywinks. I do wonder however, who in their right minds would think this power would not be abused immediately?

Our government has derailed from our Constitution. That cannot be debated. With the absurd postulation of the New Class progressives that run the DNC and the RNC, that our Constitution is a “living breathing document,” our only real bulwark against tyranny has been mutated into a chimera, designed to do the opposite of what it was intended. Progressives have doubled down on their scheme to wrest power from the Constitution and place it firmly and forever in their greasy hands. Even when the New Class controlled Supreme Court doesn’t pervert the Constitution, to give the statists a leg up, the New Class will take matters into their own hands by amending our Constitution. Since arbitrary power is the end goal of New Class Progressives, and to them the end justifies the means, changing the Constitution for political power is merely par for the course.

To argue that the political elite will not misuse the new power to control political thought through legislation is to argue fish don’t swim and birds don’t fly. The scandals of the past few years have been as breathtaking in their scope as they were in their audacity. The IRS targeting politically disfavored groups, like the Tea Party, pro Israeli groups and conservative republicans, is so corrupt… in a sane world people would already be in jail. The intentional destruction of government property and erasing of emails by the IRS is a clear sign to all but the most willfully blind, that our government has disconnected from any Constitutional, legal or moral restraint.

When someone has proven, over and over, they cannot be trusted, to trust them is just plain stupid. Our political elite have been caught in so many lies only the most imbecilic among us believe them. The cover up of the botched kidnapping of Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi is but one terrifically egregious example. The Obama administration sent Susan Rice on a lying tour of the Sunday talk shows. The story they peddled was such obvious fiction, I was flabbergasted that they thought so little of our intelligence they would come up with such a lame excuse for a terrorist attack on a US embassy, on the anniversary of 911. In a blog that I wrote that day I said as much. Now that the lie has been exposed for what it is there are no consequences for it. This shows the lengths our government will do to cover up their misdeeds and is indicative of how low in esteem they hold us.

In the last election, where Obama won his second term, government pulled out all the stops to convince the American people up is down and right is left. The Benghazi cover up was only one example. The Federal reserve enacted QE3 just prior to the election of 2012, to gin the stock markets and give the American people a false sense of economic growth. Even the Census bureau got in on the act. A year before the election a famous CEO, Jack Welch, said the unemployment rate would be below 8%, an unemployment number requisite for a sitting President to be reelected. The unbiased media turned on him like a pack of rabid dogs. Then, like clockwork, as the election neared amazingly enough the unemployment figures dropped exactly as he had said they would. The numbers were later shown to be as false as a Chinese government GDP figure, but Obama had won… the election and the ruses had worked.

The political elite have proven over and over they cannot be trusted. Our founding fathers as much as told us this would happen, but we have been so stupefied many of us don’t even care, as long as we get their welfare check, food stamps, hack job or crony capitalism kickbacks. Let me ask you this, answer it honestly, (if only to yourself), would you believe your husband or wife if they had been caught cheating on you over and over, when you caught them posting an ad on the internet for a hooker… that they were actually looking for a maid? Only a fool believes someone who is incapable of telling the truth, and those who do believe a known liar, deserve what they get. Changing our Constitution so the political elite can have more power to lie, control the narrative and shut down debate, is so obviously corrupting to any political system the American people should roar in anger, but instead, so many of us dilute our righteous indignation with their complacence, the roar will be quieted to a low hum, and the political elite will move the ball of tyranny further down the field. We have no one but ourselves to blame though… for allowing it.

Sincerely,

John Pepin

Hate Filled Progressives

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

 

 

Dear Friends,

 

It seems to me, progressives are the very people they purport to hate, which points to the reason for their self loathing. Any time a conservative brings up the lack of school shootings, the lower crime rate, the better work ethic of the past, progressives claim the conservative really wants to return to slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, robber barons and rolling back woman’s suffrage. Of course that is the old tried and true method of spurious argumentation, by putting words in someone’s mouth they didn’t utter or believe, and argue against those words. It also points out that what the progressives claim to hate, bigotry, intolerance, the wealthy, the US and racism, is just part of a meme. Let’s call it the progressive hate meme. This meme plays out in the minds of progressives constantly and spreads like influenza. Hate however, is the most counter productive means to solve any problem, it is corrosive to the humanity of the hater and the person hated.

 

Bigotry is one of the things progressives rail about the most. They really hate bigots. A progressive will scream red faced all day about how bigoted everyone in the Tea Party is. Progressives love to go on and on how terrible it is that law enforcement would profile people, anyone who puts people in a box, they argue, is a bigot and therefore a bad person. Yet progressives put everyone in a box! They separate us into groups and factions then pit us against each other. Claiming everyone in an arbitrary grouping has the exact same qualities is the very definition of a bigot.

 

Progressives cannot tolerate intolerance. They are quick to point out that someone who they disagree with is an intolerant hater, and so the “hater” should have their free speech curtailed, so they don’t lead others astray. Progressives love to use epithets like intolerance to shut down debate they cannot win. They will go to the utmost extreme to get a Koresh removed from a park or a cross taken down from a hill, because it is so intolerable to them, they simply cannot tolerate Christian symbols in the open. A progressive will move heaven and Earth to get a CEO who made a donation to a charity or political campaign they disagree with fired, because any other perspective than the progressive’s, cannot be tolerated.

 

Oh boy do progressive hate the rich! Well, not the already rich, but people trying to get rich. The propaganda against the “rich” is as hostile as it is sophist. Those uber rich who support progressive causes are considered the “good” rich and those very few who support our Constitution are the “bad” rich. What is always lost on the progressive, is that they are mostly members of the New Class and as such, make up 90% the top 10% on the wealth scale. George Soros gives billions to the Tides foundation and the Center for American Progress, among many others, he has bankrupted whole nations resulting in famine, economic collapse and want, and never gets attacked for his donations in the unbiased media… but the Koch brothers are demonized, even in the halls of power, for favoring our Constitution.

 

Progressives constantly rail about inequality. They demand everyone be equal, well, not equal so much as have the same stuff, except for them. Like, Obama eats the best food but begrudges it for our children and us, they spend millions of our tax dollars on vacations but tell us to cut back, the hypocrisy they show is astounding. A progressive sees nothing wrong with going to a $10,000.00 a plate dinner, to raise funds for another progressive who will stomp down inequality with regulation, while never donating a single cent to charity.

 

Racism is one of the progressive’s biggest bug bears. They hate Tea party members, ostensibly because all Tea party members are racists, which is of course a bigoted way of thinking. Even a cursory examination of progressive rhetoric shows who the real racists are. Progressives claim all white people are racists. You know, those bitter clingers, clinging to “their” guns and religion, in other words, typical white people.

 

If we look back at history and the progressive heroes the loop closes. Margaret Sanger so hated African Americans she started Planned Parenthood to exterminate them. The first ever showing of “The Rise of a Nation” was played in Woodrow Wilson’s white house! Speaking of the progressive Wilson, he also penned many letters and articles explaining why women are inferior to men, the attributes of the “lesser races” among other topics modern progressives claim to hate. But they love him. Eugenics, as practiced by Hitler, was based on the progressive eugenics movement in the US. The progressive movement metastasizes every few decades and destroys our economy, standard of living, gins up hatred and civil unrest, the results of their policies are always so bad they destroy the progressive name, so the movement goes underground, rebranding themselves as “liberals,” until people who remember what the progressives stand for are all dead. Then they come back, hating everything they stand, (stood) for, and tricking another generation into thinking they are human hearted, when nothing could be further from the truth. Progressives truly are the very people they claim to hate and have always been. The really scary thing is… both political parties in the US are run by self loathing progressives.

Evil Always Defeats Itself

Monday, September 1st, 2014

 

Dear Friends,

 

It seems to me, the rise of ISIS will result in the deaths of perhaps millions of human beings, but in the end, it will be their own evil that defeats them. Great evil always defeats itself because it confuses human suffering with victory. The suffering of other human beings is always more important to those who serve Lucifer than anything else. Oh, they might lie to themselves and even believe their own lies, but in the end it is not power, righteousness or to serve God that evil people like ISIS do what they do, it is a love of inflicting human suffering that is their primary motivator, and that motivation has it roots in hate. Hatred is so powerful an emotion it can drive people to do the most despicable things without a hint of remorse. In the next few years when our governments do nothing of any real consequence to stop ISIS from their goal of a global Caliphate, where only Muslims are allowed to live, we must keep in mind that even without intervention of government, armies or even God, ISIS will be defeated, due entirely to their evil nature. Evil always has within it the seeds of it’s own destruction.

 

There is no better example in history than the Second World War. Hitler and the Nazis were evil. Evil fueled by hate was their primary motivator. Hate of the Jews, Gypsies and all non Aryans was the Nazis bread and butter. The Nazis reveled in slaughter. The war was ostensibly a means to power but in reality is was a way to round up more people to feed into the meat grinder. All other purposes came second to the slaughter.

 

In September 1941 the Nazi war machine was on the verge of victory. They had taken almost all of European Russia and were banging at the doors of Leningrad, Moscow and the Caucuses. When winter fell on the German troops they had plenty of winter gear but it was in Germany. OKW had thought the war would be over before winter and so the winter clothes and gear sat in Berlin. This is where priorities came to the front. The Nazis had enough trains to get the winter gear to their troops in plenty of time, but instead, those trains were used to bring Jews and Gypsies to the death camps. Meanwhile the flower of German youth froze to death in the frozen wastes of Russia.

 

Later in the war, in 1943 Germany was worried about Hungary flipping and signing a separate peace with Russia, as Romania had a month earlier, so Nazi Germany sponsored a coup. The coup brought loyal Nazis to power in Hungary. The Hungarian government had, until that point, been sheltering the Jews from deportation to the death camps, but the moment loyal Nazis took power they started rounding up Jews for extermination. Meanwhile Army Group Center was facing imminent collapse. They badly needed ammunition and supplies, but the German rail system was diverted from the war effort again to ship Jews who had escaped the campaign of extermination, to the death camps. The result was that Army Group Center collapsed creating a hole the Russian army could simply drive to Berlin through.

 

The evil empire, the Soviet Union, was also defeated by their own evil. Instead of building up their industry to improve the lot of people, the Soviet Union built a war machine, in the absence of war. Stalin the despot, would sign the execution papers for thousands of people a day, then watch his favorite swashbuckler. Millions were executed, sent to forced reeducation camps, tortured, shipped to Siberia as slave labor, whole races faced ethnic cleansing and suffering was universal among the people, while splendid luxury was the bailiwick of the Communist elite. The whole thing came crashing down because of the economic, social and cultural stresses such a system must build up.

 

ISIS is no different. The seeds of their destruction lay in their evil. How many have they murdered that otherwise would have helped them like the Nazis did in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia? Eventually they will divert essential war supplies to some evil end or turn on their allies just as the Nazis did. Even if they win and subject the entire world to tyranny their empire will not last a decade. The stresses such a system create will put an end to that perverted structure. Sadly, not until millions or maybe even billions of our fellow human beings have died horribly, will ISIS’ own evil defeat them. That is the cost to good people who allow evil to grow, and that is exactly what we have done. By voting in governments that not only allowed it to grow, but nurtured it for their own evil ends… we have become our own executioners.

Capitalist Security System and a Zero Unit Cost of Labor

Monday, August 18th, 2014

 

Dear Friends,

 

It seems to me, another thing most countries could do to improve their economy, would be to establish a Capitalist Security System (CSS). Such a system would be completely different than the typical social(ist) security system (SSS) we have now. Some of the ways they differ are, CSS would invest and add to the stock of capital available for growth; while SSS steals from the capital stock, CSS would add to generational wealth; while SSS steals from generational wealth, CSS gives every man woman and child a stake in society; while SSS gives people a stake in more powerful government, to take the taxes needed, etc… If a country redirected the funds now going into all the SSS in that country were instead turned to a CSS, that nation’s economy would reap huge rewards, incentive wise, in productivity and capital available for new companies. Everyone would benefit with each successive generation reaping ever larger rewards while contributing to the economic success of their countries.

 

We all know how SSS works but I’ll explain it for those who might not be sure.The Social(ist) Security System is a system, where the government takes money from those young enough to work and the businesses that hire them, then gives some of that money to those who have reached an age deemed too old to work. The money goes through various bureaus of government and some of the money stops there to fund those bureaus. Some of the money gets caught in the sieve of corruption and conniving that surrounds every government bureaucracy and stops there funding corruption. The rest gets to those on government pension. The system is expensive because so many hands are in it, it fuels corruption with government money, it is unsustainable, it takes capital from producers and redistributes it to non producers… among many other problems.

 

A CSS would operate very differently. A Capitalist Security System would not invest in government’s power, as does typical social security, Capitalist Social Security would instead invest in the power of the market through dividend paying stocks. Initial funding would be through legally required investment of a portion of one’s income, or perhaps a .5% tax on consumption, (Sales tax). It would be run by an algorithm that buys dividend paying stocks the world over based on several criteria, one of which would be longevity of the business model and of dividend history. The fund would grow by reinvesting the dividends and selling stocks that under perform via dividends. Once the first generation reached the requisite age, then it would pay out 50% of the dividends to the retirees and reinvest the other half. A person’s portion of the income stream from the fund would transfer to their heirs upon their death as the pensioner see fit. The heir could then start receiving payment immediately or allow their portion to grow and get larger payments later, say when they retire.

 

It would probably be administered by a bureaucracy in government, but it doesn’t need to, it could be administered by some financial firm, the operation of the CSS fund being awarded by competitive bid based on the firm’s fees. There would have to be special tax exemptions for the fund. One tax exemption would be to stop the double taxation of dividend income. Either tax the company or the investor, not both. In the case of CSS the company would pay the income tax, (if there is one) and the fund would face no tax penalty. The investor should not be taxed on the income he or she gets out of the fund, since the corporation already did, and the fund itself is just an agent of the investor. In the case of the CSS fund the investors would be everyone.

 

The economic advantages should be clear for anyone to see. One would be the strong incentive for companies to reinvest in plant equipment and training. Else they run the risk of being sold by the CSS fund which would be the kiss of death to a company’s stock price. The huge fluctuations in the stock market would be diminished due to the fact the CSS fund wouldn’t sell it’s stocks in a panic, the incentive for companies under such a system would be to pay dividends as well as grow the company. Another advantage would be that pay for corporation bigwigs would face downward pressure, because if too much is sucked off today the power of shareholders to demand more of the company’s profits given to them as dividends is far too diluted by various factors, but if a giant fund such as the CSS showed displeasure at the high pay of a CEO the firm would toe the line. Perhaps most importantly, in the real world, SSS must eventually fail, because government will eventually run out of other people’s money to take, but a CSS would be self sustaining and grow organically. The list of economic advantages is endless for a Capitalist Social Security System.

 

With human like robots coming on the scene sooner than people realize, (20-40 years) this will be a phenomenon that will eventually drive the unit cost of labor to zero. A zero cost of labor will usher in a completely new paradigm for humanity. Maybe for the better and maybe for the worse but it will be different than anything that has come before. For a leader in government to see this and envision a means to stave off the possible starving masses, that such a situation could give rise to, shows vision. A Capitalist Social Security System could be just such a means to keep future generations, who will have lost the ability to sell their labor in the open market for wages, a means of sustenance. A means of sustenance that will grow with each generation. Like I said, “ another thing most countries could do to improve their economy, would be to establish a Capitalist Security System.”

One Step To Improve the Economy

Monday, August 11th, 2014

 

Dear Friends,

 

It seems to me, one simple thing all governments could do to improve their economies, would be to create a panel, that would go over the regulations and laws then make an annual list of regulations and or laws that are outdated, redundant, harmful, pernicious etc… The legislative branch would then see to it that these regulations and or laws would be removed from the books. In this way any country could at least grab the low hanging fruit of economic improvement. There is not a country on Earth that would not benefit economically from this approach.

 

Regulations are the nemesis of economic expansion. While a standard facilitates market transactions, regulations are designed to give an economically favored group a leg up, in an other wise free market transaction. Since they give an economically favored group special treatment, they both skew the market, warping it and creating bubbles, and they create pernicious incentives. Pernicious incentives like, it being more economically beneficial to seek political favor than, to provide a good product at a low cost. Regulations undermine economic expansion in other ways as well.

 

Typically the favored economic group are older more established firms. Regulations raise the cost of entrance and extend the time line where a business operates in the red before it starts making money. This allows older more established firms to make higher profits and pay for political favor. Even a seemingly innocuous regulation like requiring a furniture store to have a changing table in their bathrooms, benefits older firms, they have the monetary cushion to absorb the cost, but new firms might be running in the red to hopefully get to profitability, so the extra cost might be the tipping point.

 

Now… many will say, oh well, so sad… but may I put this to you? As I have explained before in prior articles, small entrepreneurial businesses are the engines of growth in a market based economy, so when government regulations hinder the formation and operation of entrepreneurial companies, that regulation or law directly lowers the standard of living for that generation… and that lowering is magnified over later generations due to the effect of compounded growth!

 

Take the negative effects I have outlined and multiply them by the thousands of regulations on the books of every country on Earth, if they were combed of nits, a huge source of friction to the economic machine that is the market system would be removed. Such a panel, given sufficient funds and prestige, who’s ideas were followed through on… actually erasing the regulations and laws the panel suggested, would reward such wise governance with economic success. There would be push back, from those elite who’s sacred cows go on the chopping block, but I’ve heard somewhere, sacred cows make the best hamburger.

 

 

Sincerely,
