D'oh!

D’oh!

First off, a correction:Yesterday’s link regarding the slaughter of Christians might be a fake. Sorry, just learned about that. However, here’s a link to something real, from one of the most credible people on the planet.

Let’s get to the rest:

The House votes 255-67 to hold Eric Holder in contempt. Ace writes that since 17 Dems voted for contempt, that means it’s a bipartisan move. And:“The Democrats staged a walk out. From WI and IN to the House of Representatives, when Democrats don’t get their way they walk away like spoiled little brats.”

UPDATE: Missed this earlier– Fulton Sheen declared “Venerable”. Heck to the yeah, man! Next step, Beatification!

Initial Fast And Furious Roundup

Okay, it’s late, but I was trying to get this out before I went to bed tonight. Remember, this is the “program” that is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of innocent Mexicans, and Americans, including Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. In a more honest world, it would have been considered an act of war, and Holder would have been on trial at least a year ago. Myself, I’d even have tossed treason charges in as well. This thing was an abomination, they knew it, and with the help of the corrupted media, they have been covering it up as much as they could.Anyway, on with the linkage, starting with some “older” stuff for some context. . .

Related to previous post: Forced Abortions and Sterilizations

AT is humming today, as usual. While skimming their headlines today, I ran across the following from their blog portion, and it also fits into what I’m piecing together:

Is Hitler’s World Our Own? by Casey Mattox

The forced sterilization of those whom society has rejected because of their race, economic standing, or mental condition rightfully brings to mind Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger.  Adolf Hitler also comes to mind, with his absolute inhumane treatment of 400,000 fellow humans via forced sterilizations under his “Law for the Prevention of Progeny with Hereditary Diseases.”

 

But that was then, and this is now. And what happened under Sanger and Hitler couldn’t happen in a society as “advanced” as ours — or could it?  (Or is it?)

 

In December 2010, the Boston Herald reported on Norfolk Probate and Family Court Judge Christina L. Harms’ order to force a 32-year-old woman, referred to by the pseudonym “Mary Moe,” to have an abortion and then to be sterilized — all against the woman’s consent.

 

Harms’ justification for her decision was Moe’s mental state.  (One of Hitler’s reasons for forcing women to be sterilized in the 1930s was “mental illness” as well.)  What’s especially horrifying about Moe’s situation, however, is that her mental problems are documented to be the direct result of an abortion she had to end an earlier pregnancy — an abortion she now regrets because she believes that through it, “she killed her baby.”

 

And even though a guardian ad litem concluded that Moe “would have refused an abortion even if mentally sound” because of her Roman Catholic faith, Harms was unmoved.

 

Rather, Harms summarily dismissed the guilt and misery Moe still feels from having her first abortion, as well as her faith, and “claimed in her ruling that Moe would choose the abortion if she were mentally competent.”  She also “directed that any medical facility that performed the abortion also sterilize Moe at the same time to avoid [sic] this painful situation from recurring.”

 

It’s like Orwell’s world is now our world, and it’s neither brave nor new.  Instead, it’s an ugly rewrite of the kind of place Sanger and Hitler both envisioned.

 

Yet as bad as this story could end, by God’s grace, State Appellate Court Associate Justice Andrew R. Grainger reversed Judge Harms’ ruling, stating that “[n]o party requested this measure … and the judge appears to have simply produced the requirement out of thin air.”

 

The Alliance Defense Fund, in its litigation on many other life-related matters, sees far too many tragic stories involving abortion.  We thank God that the angst which undoubtedly has consumed Moe since her first, and hopefully last, abortion will now be somewhat abated.  In this instance, life has triumphed over death.

 

Casey Mattox serves as legal counsel with the Alliance Defense Fund at its Washington, D.C. Regional Service Center.

 

Nazi Roots of “Sustainability”

Texan59 over at The Conservative Treehouse linking this article in the Open Thread this morning, from The American Thinker (I’m copying the entire text, because it’s working into something I’ve been working on, but I’m not yet sure which bits are the most relevant):

Green Lebensraum: The Nazi Roots of Sustainable Development By Mark Musser

Much of the European Union’s green sustainable development plans are largely based on government controlled land use planning theories rooted in the lebensraum tradition.    Literally, lebensraum means “living space.”   Lebensraum was originally developed by German geographer Friedrich Ratzel (1844-1904) and then greatly expanded under the banner of National Socialism (1933-1945).

An Effing Huge Pack, Not a Herd

There’s been trouble, lately. Yessir, right here in Righty City. But it ain’t pool. It’s Strategy. The Rightosphere is in a bit of a tussle right now, people bickering back and forth over the importance of the Utter Lack of Documentation of Teh Won, which is to say, The Traitor In The Oval Office Issue.

To side 1, we have the likes of Glenn Beck and other well-known Conservatives who believe that the whole thing  is a waste of time, and a distraction– even if all the theories are true. They believe that this is taking our focus off what they consider to be the Big Issue– The Deliberate Tanking of Our Economy To Create Slaves Plan. They believe that every moment spent pondering the legitimacy of the Occupier is a moment not spent pondering the AntiChrist’s Vicar-on-Earth, George Soros

To Side 2, we have such highly esteemed writers as Ann Barnhardt and other bloggers of quality (BigFurHat, ITookTheRedPill, etc . . .) who maintain that this Fraud-In-Chief Issue is the keystone that, if broken upon the world–and acted upon– destroys completely the Create Slaves Plan. They believe that ignoring this issue is destroying the Constution just as surely as perpetrating the fraud itself.

There is a third side, standing outside the ring, watching this and saying “This infighting is exactly according to the Create Slaves Plan . . .”

But overall, 2 sides. Who is right?

Well, not to be Jesuitical about it (I was trained by the best, though!). . . both are correct, in as far as they go. However, one is a little more mistaken in it’s premise than the other– Side 1.

Here’s where I respectfully disagree with Beck, Allahpundit, Morrisey, and other fine people. There is the sense, in their argument, that the Tea Party/ Conservative mass, can only focus on one thing at a time. That there is a Single Big Issue that we can focus on, and everything else must be secondary, at best. In their minds, the Tea Party is something akin to maybe a herd or hive mind, working as one, with one goal and one plan. One upon a time, they would have been right. When there was only the MSM for news, when proper channels meant something, when political parties actually served a purpose, I think this was a very accurate understanding. Most people can only devote all their energy to one thing. But things have changed.

For one, of course, is the rise of alternative media– far beyond Limbaugh and G Gordon Liddy of the mid ’90s. The internet has exploded the sources and channels of news and communication. The narrative, despite the efforts of many, is not controlled. It flows on its own, driven by the people who click and read and follow links. Second, partially due to this new freedom of information across the country, the political parties are mostly redundant (at best), or otherwise entirely useless. There are no parties, really, anymore. The Democrats were eaten by the Socialists and Anarchists, and the Republicans–if they’re lucky– will be subsumed by the Tea Party. Finally, with all the training this generation and younger has had with multi-tasking, we’re far better at it. We can follow several issues at once. One still puts a larger chunk of energy toward one issue over others, but this doesn’t mean that a ton of people putting in somewhat smaller efforts won’t have the same effect. An Army of Davids armed with Post-its may be able to do more than Glenn Beck with a microphone. Put this with the newfreedom of communication and information, and we are no longer simply a herd, to be steered by the Lead Stallion.

No, we are a pack. A Massive, huge, ginormous Pack. We all specialize in different things, but we still work as a great big team. Think: An army that works like a wolf–or velociraptor– pack.

Imagine this. There is a Princess held captive at the top of a mountain. At a certain time, she is going to be sacrificed to the Devil– it’s up to you to save her in time. Your way is blocked by orcs, goblins, trolls, and other nasty things. But, in a small temple on a neighboring mountain is a The Sword of Truth, a blade that, if you get it, will slay all your opponents for you, and will also carry you up the mountain. It, however, is guarded by dragons and balrogs. And time is ticking. What do you do?

Side 1 says “Forget the stupid sword! Rescue the Effing Princess!”

Side 2 says “Me and what army? Oh yeah, that army. Hey, Delta Teams 1,5,7, Ranger Squads Bravo, Charlie and Gamma– you all, go get that sword and bring it back to us! Delta Teams 2,3,8 and Ranger Squads Alpha, Sigma, Epsilon– build a helicopter. The rest of you– start killing orcs already!”

Start the rescue immediately. And go for the Sword of Truth. Do both.

Look, the post it campaign probably won’t have much luck with BC-themed post its. It’s too esoteric at the moment. But that doesn’t mean this Truth shouldn’t be pursued. Truth should always be pursued. These anomalies must be caught now, analyzed and understood. Even if they don’t bear fruit for several years– if we wait to pursue, memories fade, details (perhaps damning) slip away. Catch everything you can, now, and sort it out. Let us build this understanding so that when we have that chance, we have our sh!t together and ready to go. Such windows are often small and fleeting. Let’s make sure we can grab it when it comes.

In the meantime, without missing a beat, we can also talk to our neighbors and the people in the grocery checkout line. We can leave pointed little post-its and do everything we can to get people on board. We can show them the economic trouble as it relates to them and start bringing them over. We can confront the corruption in the schools.

How do you think we got in this mess to begin with? You had a large mass of people, attacking America from every conceivable angle. If they can do it, so can we, only in reverse. We can attack these Treasonous Sons of Whores from every possible angle, all the time. Keep hammering, from every direction, over and over and over. Don’t let up.

Save The Princess. Get the Sword. Do it all.

Federal Reserve Press Conference

I’m looking for a transcript to post, but haven’t found one yet. And don’t have the time tonight to write one up myself.

Just remember, this guy is going to say whatever he thinks he needs to say to get you to stop looking at the Fed. Oh, we’re not that powerful! Yes, we’re as concerned as you are! No, there won’t be a QE3, of course not!

This guy can’t be trusted any more than Cousin Lucius when the Aurors come and ask him about possible Death Eater activity.

Now, if only we had some ruddy Veritaserum . . .

UPDATE: Thanks to the good folk at Zerohedge.com, the Transcript (and a couple of bonus word clouds).

PIGford

For just over a month, now, the echoing whisper of “Pigford” has drifted down into the dungeons. A little information was found– settlements for lawsuits rife with fraud and paid with taxpayer dollars. But, the other whisper that came with that name was “Breitbart will be addressing this, soon. . .”

Well, and so he has. BigGovernment (ed. Yes, there was a typo before, fixed it) today is overflowing with Pigford. (Emphasis mine)

I stumbled on the Pigford story in my defense of the Tea Party, so it’s a sweet irony that the Pigford story is exactly the kind of mess that makes the Tea Party so necessary. Politicians and trial attorneys bonded together to rip off the taxpayer, and even those farmers that were discriminated against were royally screwed.

Let me be clear, our investigation convincingly leads us to believe the USDA practiced discrimination against black farmers. Those wrongs must be rectified. But Pigford is wrought with a grotesque amount of fraud, while the truly aggrieved were mostly left high and dry.

The Pigford tale is about government run amok. It is also an indictment of the American media that is so blinded by ideology that it missed the big story yet again because taking out a political enemy was far more expedient. And furthermore it is why the American people need the Tea Party and new media as a checks and balances on corrupt politicians and their corrupt journalist counterparts.


There’s much, much more. Links for your perusal:

It certainly seems as though this Pigford settlement has a deeper purpose. And think about Michelle Obama’s healthy food campaign.Is this all interrelated?
