Craig Rucker from CFACT: The Advance of the “Fascist Greens”

         VIRGINIA’S GREEN EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

“CFACT readers have been following Virginia farmer Martha Boneta’s battle to protect her property rights against intrusion by the Piedmont Environmental Council (PEC) and other Green groups.

The PEC wants to prevent Boneta, you may recall, from engaging in such egregious practices as selling vegetables and throwing birthday parties on her farm.

To the Greens’ consternation, however, Martha Boneta is no pushover.  She has fought for her right to farm by successfully inspiring legislative action.  She has also resorted to the courts.

Imagine Martha’s surprise when Fauquier Circuit Court Judge Jeffrey W. Parker denied Martha her day in court against the PEC while permitting her case against neighboring landowners to go forward.

Senior policy analyst Bonner Cohen has details at CFACT.org:

“How impartial was Judge Parker? Months before the PEC case was even heard, Judge Parker proclaimed from the bench that he ‘didn’t believe the PEC was guilty of wrongdoing.’ This bizarre statement foreshadowed how Parker would rule when the case and the evidence were finally before him nearly a year later. For her part, Boneta plans to appeal the ruling and has separate suit pending against the PEC.”

The right to farm in freedom is what inspired a multitude to leave Europe and settle in America.  Property rights are an essential American liberty that must be protected.

How much more difficult to secure our freedoms if we cannot look to the courts?

Reform is overdue.”    from Craig Rucker at CFACT….

Animal Farm’s New Commandments

America as Animal Farm — Again

by Victor Davis Hanson   at National Review:

“New commandments replace the old ones on the barn wall.

The socialist essayist and novelist George Orwell by 1944 grew depressed that as a cost for the defeat of the Axis Powers the Allies had empowered an equally nightmarish monster in the Soviet Union. Since his days fighting for the loyalists during the Spanish Civil War, the left-wing Orwell had become an increasingly outspoken enemy of Communism. After the defeat of Nazi Germany, when Stalin renounced all his wartime assurances and steamrolled Eastern Europe, Orwell came to see state socialism under authoritarian auspices as the greatest threat to human freedom. It was not as if right-wing dictators were not equally lethal, but the inclusion of the words “socialist” and “republic” in a left-wing tyrant’s official lexicon tended to fool millions. Indeed, it was precisely the leftist totalitarians’ habit of embroidering their murderous pursuit of power with professions of “equality,” “fairness,” and “egalitarianism” that so often allowed them to employ any means necessary to achieve their supposedly exalted ends. In sum, in Orwell’s eyes, the radical Left’s erasure of historical memory and its distortion of reality through the manipulation of language were the chief threat of the 20th century.

His 1945 novella Animal Farm — initially difficult for Orwell to publish and deeply hated by Western leftists — was an allegorical warning to liberals of the dangers of left-wing propaganda. Words and phrases changed their meanings — again and again — to serve a tyrannical agenda. The assorted creatures of Orwell’s fictional barnyard frequently wake up to new commandments posted on the barn wall by their Stalinesque pig leaders, with yesterday’s edicts crossed out or modified — and soon to be forgotten.

Given the political sympathies and self-interest of the present mainstream media and cultural elite, when the Obama administration came into power in 2009, we crossed out prior, out-of-power edicts and wrote new establishment versions in their place — as if no one would ever quite know the difference, or would soon forget if he did. Many of us at the time wrote about the nearly Orwellian change in liberal mentality required to accommodate Obama’s many contradictions. Rich people were suddenly not all bad blue-stocking Republicans, but also hip, valuable Silicon Valley progressives in flip-flops who, with some reluctance, outsourced and off-shored. In our past eight years of historical revisionism, huge political contributions — like the hundreds of millions of dollars in subsidies given by multi-billionaire financial speculator George Soros — were now helpful for democracy if only they were given to left-wing causes……”  Please read on:

Dennis Prager, Despite His Own Stench, Will Vote For Our Donald!

I have been a devoted radio  fan of Dennis Prager since October, 2004 when I first heard his voice describing the empty suited, presidential candidate of the Left,  John F. Kerry.

Dennis’ vocabulary exposing his vast knowledge describing this phony Democrat sans suit plus an emotion which came from both heart and body was worth some kind of a world championship medal.

No one I have ever known has so matched my thinking, political, social, religious, cultural than this Dennis Prager……..until the arrival of guess who???

Our Donald……

Not that I hadn’t thought ill of our Donald over the 30 or more years I have known the man via television and newsprint.   His culture, religion,  language,  and wealth were certainly not mine, yet  I only had read about him in papers and knew he performed occasionally on television.

I actually prefer the company of the fellow artist- laborers in our landscape garden company.    They are as talented in their outdoor field of art, construction,  and creativity  as Dennis and his talk-alikes  are in their  indoor field of political  cultural persuasion  and preachment….but I can’t imagine Dennis and associates could really understand  the meaning of my statement.   Nor would decent Jonah Goldberg, and the other conservatives on Dennis’ hate Trump list.  These are indoor preachers,  teams teeming  in today’s  indoor culture who  make their fortunes telling listeners how to live, think, and vote.

They claim to be the real conservative.   They have despised Mr. Trump, almost brain-dead since the man entered the  2016 presidential contest as a Republican.

Mr. Trump didn’t match Pragerpeople standards…… These snob superior GOP railed  over this flamboyant, in ones face business man, who as it turns out, likes to tell things as he actually sees and feels about them.   But, the elite shouted, “He’s not even a conservative”….and “He doesn’t even have a foreign policy”…..and worse, Mr. Trump mouthed in public  what he (and countless others) saw in Fiorina’s new  face….plastic rather than character.   How modern!

It turned out there was something terribly plastic about almost all of the 17 or so Republican candidates vying for the White House life.   Only our Donald was pricelessly different, actually unique.   I especially noticed that on the evening of August 6, when arrogant Fox gal,  Megyn Kelly,  introduced herself to our Donald attacking him to advance her own reputation as a feminist ‘tough’ quoting from comments made about some women he’s known in the past.

Dennis never interviewed our Donald on his radio show.      Never to shame his own self esteem, our Dennis,  now that Mr. Trump is the winning GOP candidate to face dame Hillary, although still   ‘despises’ our Donald, but despises him  less than he despises Mrs. Clinton’s leftist fascists he so correctly describes as tyrants coming to roost if Mr. Trump doesn’t win in November.

I do confess, I have come to love our Donald with all his faults Dennis snarls about, even more than the respect I have had all  these twelve years of knowing our Dennis.  My country’s future is in Mr. Trump’s mind and hands.  That does please me very much!

From that very August 6th evening when assaulted by feminist Kelly our Donald first answered “Only Rosie O’Donnell” referring to remarks about mouth-ugly  women,  I knew this guy was not  just another boring GOP automaton mouthing words with more words loser.   He was a business man, a builder not a political hack, a real guy American who reeked personality and seemed as profoundly pissed at what has become of the country’s business, beliefs,  and ignorance as I was.

I loved his language and tone……at last someone is poking holes into the leftist wall of political correctness.  I love his tempo,  humor, his personality.  He’s winsome!!

And he is NOT a hack politician, but a conservative business man who knows what he wants…..TO MAKE AMERICA  GREAT AGAIN!!  Where can I sign up!

Poor, lonely, misguided, isolated, indoorman, Dennis Prager…..hasn’t a clue, yet!

It might conversion painful, but he’ll get there when the real battle begins.

The following Prager confession is about the best Dennis  can do at present, to write something less nasty, less bigoted  than his daily assaults on our Donald almost to this very day.

Well, as the old saying goes:  “Halitosis is better than no breath at all!”

A Response to My Conservative #NeverTrump Friends

Dennis Prager

5/24/2016 12:01:00 AM – Dennis Prager

When you differ from people you admire, you have to question yourself. After all, what is the purpose of admiring people if they aren’t capable of influencing you?

So, I have had to challenge my position — stated since the outset of the Republican presidential debates — that if Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination, I will vote for him over Hillary Clinton, or any Democrat for that matter.

I devoted many hours of radio and many columns to criticizing Trump. His virtually assured nomination has therefore caused me grief as an American, a Republican and a conservative. That his character defects, gaps in knowledge on some important issues, and lack of identifiably conservative principles came to mean little to so many Republican voters is quite troubling. (Though, I might add, it is even more troubling that virtually all Democrats ignore the even worse character of Hillary Clinton, as well as the idiotic socialist ideas of Sen. Bernie Sanders.)

#NeverTrump conservatives, such as (in alphabetical order) Jonah Goldberg, Bill Kristol, Ben Shapiro, Bret Stephens and George Will are not merely people I admire — they are friends and colleagues. Goldberg, Stephens and Will have made multiple videos for Prager University, which receive millions of views. Shapiro and I have spent Shabbat together. I have had the privilege of writing for Kristol’s The Weekly Standard and having him on my show many times. And I have enthusiastically promoted their books. These individuals are special to me not only as thinkers, but as people.

However, in the final analysis, I do not find their arguments compelling.

Take the “conscience” argument that one can sleep with a clear conscience by not voting for Trump. I don’t find it compelling because it means that your conscience is clear after making it possible for Clinton or any other Democrat to win.

In fact, the “conscience” argument is so weak that Goldberg — to his credit — published a column two days ago titled “Sorry, I Still Won’t Ever Vote for Trump.” He wrote, “If the election were a perfect tie, and the vote fell to me and me alone, I’d probably vote for none other than Donald Trump.”

Shouldn’t all Americans vote as if their vote were the deciding vote? Including those whose votes “don’t count” because they live in states that are so left-wing they would still vote Democrat if Vladimir Lenin headed the Democratic ticket?

The choice this November is tragic. As it often happens in life, this choice is between bad and worse, not bad and good.

But America has made that choice before. When forced to choose between bad and worse, we supported Joseph Stalin against Adolf Hitler, and we supported right-wing authoritarians against Communist totalitarians.

It seems to me that the #NeverTrump conservatives want to remain morally pure. I understand that temptation. I am tempted, too. But if you wish to vanquish the bad, it is not possible — at least not on this side of the afterlife — to remain pure.

The most moving interview of my 33 years in radio was with Irene Opdyke, a Polish Catholic woman. Opdyke became the mistress of a married Nazi officer in order to save the lives of 12 Jews. She hid them in the cellar of the officer’s house in Warsaw. There were some Christians who called my show to say that Opdyke’s actions were wrong, that she had in fact sinned because she knowingly committed a mortal sin. In their view, she compromised Catholic/Christian doctrine.

In my view — and, I believe, the view of most Catholics and other Christians — she brought glory to her God and her faith. Why? Because (SET ITAL) circumstances almost always determine what is moral (END ITAL), even for religious people like myself who believe in moral absolutes. That’s why the act of dropping atom bombs on Japan was moral. The circumstances (ending a war that would otherwise continue taking millions of lives) made moral what under other circumstances would be immoral.

In the 2016 presidential race, I am not interested in moral purity. I am interested in defeating the left and its party, the Democratic Party. The notion (expressed by virtually every #NeverTrump advocate) that we can live with another four years of a Democratic president is, forgive me, mind-boggling. To that end, with at least one, and probably multiple, additional leftists on the Supreme Court, a Republican presidential victory in 2020 would mean little. All the left needs is the judicial branch, especially the Supreme Court. Left-wing judges pass so many left-wing laws that they render those who control Congress, and even the White House, almost irrelevant.

Here, then, are nine reasons (there are more) why a conservative should prefer a Trump presidency to a Democrat presidency:

–Prevent a left-wing Supreme Court.

–Increase the defense budget.

–Repeal, or at least modify, the Dodd-Frank act.

–Prevent Washington, D.C. from becoming a state and giving the Democrats another two permanent senators.

–Repeal Obamacare.

–Curtail illegal immigration, a goal that doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with xenophobia or nativism (just look at Western Europe).

–Reduce job-killing regulations on large and small businesses.

–Lower the corporate income tax and bring back hundreds of billions of offshore dollars to the United States.

–Continue fracking, which the left, in its science-rejecting hysteria, opposes.

For these reasons, I, unlike my friends, could not live with my conscience if I voted to help the America-destroying left win the presidency in any way.

I just don’t understand how anyone who understands the threat the left and the Democrats pose on America will refuse to vote for the only person who can stop them.

 

Jewish View on Donald…..All from the Same Brain?

Whether leftists or those who claim to be conservative in some fashion or another, this day’s American Jew in the news  is united in its  irrational, nearly universal  “trumped up” hate for Donald Trump…..at least those who appear some way  in public.

Some play prude…. Others play mouth….claiming…..

Mr. Trump is unworthy:  he  isn’t an attorney, doesn’t convey, doesn’t play  the con-artistry of the usual competitive candidates, hiding  behind cliches playing   chic with language and gesture.   Worse, Donald Trump    is independent of hundreds of millions of dollars paid by political and economic powerhouses who hope  to control the candidate and his campaign programs.

Worse yet, Donald Trump isn’t controlled by feminist, black, atheist, Jewish, latino and other special interest -dictated rules of  political correctness, and their vast censorship  preachments  invented and distributed by the unintellectual ‘elite’, the American hating   who dictate detachment from all of our  yesterday’s of learnedness and discoveries, particularly from those listed in  our own American guide, the Supreme Law of the land,   our Federal Constitution.

Yes, Mr. Trump is new on the American political scene.   Yes, he IS a conservative by business, by his values  teaching off spring and setting fine examples for those who work under him in his business empire.   Thank GOD he is NOT an attorney with attorney’s games of corruption…..the most dishonest line of employment in America and  throughout the world.

I cannot think of a single Jewish writer, telecaster, who has not automatically smeared Donald Trump from the very first moment  Mr. Trump rose on the presidential possibility list this past summer.    Charles Krauthammer, Dennis Prager, John Hinderaker,  Bernie Goldberg,  Bill Kristol,  Ruth Marcus, Michael Medved,  Mark Levin,  John Podhoretz,  Ben Stein,  Jonah Goldberg,  et alia, et alia,  all turned  directly to bigotry-selling even before any so called debates were organized,  because the man was their hated Donald Trump, an intelligent somebody very different from the common or the snotty, someone with a different, but honorable American story to tell other than conning,  gabbing and selling their prejudices to gain favor with  the  public.

Most of  the intolerant whose names were  offered above sell  themselves as being conservative, but obviously  the intolerant kind who gather to expunge our Donald from presidential competitions by smearing.

Donald’s best speech of his political season was at AIPAC a month or so ago….was the best by far of the lot who  paraded on the AIPAC  stage…..and the best speech Mr. Trump presented during his entire quite successful campaign……actually, his only great speech of his campaign, I admit.

From my business, social,  and academic experience, I claim Donald Trump is hated by those Jews with influence, for his attachment to the more common folk,  those Americans, the people who really work rather than talk, write, propagandize  for a living,  the folks  unlawyered, the unjournalists, the non academe,  those who do not judge   Jews and others of  today’s business, academic,  and government class, as they, especially Jews  judge them.

It is a class-hate disease……particularly common among  indoor folks.

Let’s see what the folks at Jewish Bloomberg have to say about Donald’s present political ride:

DONALD TRUMP’S HAIR, etc.

Good friend, Marian Fischer, who knows I am a Donald Trump fan, sent the following:

“This letter was sent to 100% FED Up! by an anonymous author:

It doesn’t matter who you support for President in 2016. This letter will make you want to stand up and cheer for the 80 year old American who expresses what most of us are feeling right now. Enjoy..

RNC       P.O. Box 96994….Washington, DC  20090-6994

Dear Representative,

From the time I was able to vote I voted Republican. I am 80 years old, and have a great deal of respect and influence with hundreds of senior ball players who also network with thousands of others around the country.

I received your questionnaire and request for money and strongly agree with every question, as I have since Obama was elected. Unfortunately the one question that was missing is “What have the Republicans done for the American people?” We gave you a

majority in the House and Senate, yet you never listened to us. Now you want our money.

You should be more concerned about our votes, not our money. You are the establishment, which means all you want is to save your jobs and line your pockets… Well guess what? “It’s not going to happen” You shake in your boots when I tell you we’re giving our support to TRUMP and he hasn’t asked for a dime.

You might think we are fools because you feel Trump is on a self destruction course, but you need to 100k beyond Washington and listen to the masses. Nobody has achieved what

he has, especially in the liberal state of New York.

You clearly don’t understand why the Trump movement is so strong, so I’d like to share with you an analogy to help explain the Trump phenomenon. By the way, it’s not just the Republicans who feel ignored and disrespected, there are plenty of Democrats and Independents who also feel let down by the Washington elite. You seem to have forgotten about “We The People” and who hired you to represent us.

So here it is, the best analogy I could come up with. Here is the reason so many Americans have boarded the Trump Train, and why you’re pleas to come back to the party who

deserted us, is falling on deaf ears:

You’ve been on vacation for two weeks, you come home, and your basement is infested with raccoons. Hundreds of rabid, messy, mean raccoons have overtaken your basement. You want them gone immediately… You call the city and four different exterminators, but nobody could handle the job. There is this one guy however, who guarantees you he will get rid of them, so you hire him. You don’t care if the guy smells, you don’t care if the guy swears, you don’t care how many times he’s been married, you don’t care if he was friends with liberals, you don’t care if he has

plumber’s crack…you simply want those raccoons gone! You want your problem fixed!

He’s the guy. He’s the best. Period. Here’s why we want Trump: Yes he’s a bit of an ass,   yes he’s an egomaniac, but we don’t care. The country is a mess because

politicians have become too self-serving. The Republican Party is two-faced & gutless. Illegal aliens have been allowed to invade our nation. We want it all fixed! We don’t care that Trump is crude, we don’t care that he insults people, we don’t care that he had been friendly with Hillary, we don’t care that he has changed positions, we don’t care that he’s been married three times, we don’t care that he fights with Megan Kelly and Rosie O’Donnell, we don’t care that he doesn’t know the name of some Muslim terrorist.

This country is weak, bankrupt, our enemies are making fun Of us, we are being invaded by illegal aliens and bringing tens of thousands of Muslim refugees to America, while leaving

Christians behind to be persecuted. We are becoming a nation Of victims where every Tom, Ricardo and Hasid is part of a special group with special rights, to the point where we don’t even recognize the country we were born and raised in; “AND WE JUST WANT IT FIXED”

and Trump is the only guy who seems to understand what the people want.

We’re sick Of politicians. We’re sick Of the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. We just want this thing fixed. Trump may not be a saint, but he isn’t beholden to lobbyist  money and he doesn’t have political correctness restraining him.

All we know is that he has been very successful, he’s an excellent negotiator, he has built a lot of things, and he’s also not a politician. He’s definitely not a cowardly politician. When he says he’ll fix it, we believe him because he is too much of an egotist to be proven wrong or looked at and called a liar.

O yeah.   I forgot.  We don’t care if the guy has bad hair, either.

WE JUST WANT THOSE RACCOONS GONE….NOW!”

(DEAR READERS….NO, I DID NOT WRITE THE ABOVE NOTE.    I’M GOING ON 82.)

 

GOP Governor Joins Lefty Greeny Demand to Trespass at Will on Private Property

Craig Rucker of CFACT  sent the following notice:

Eco-trespassers in your backyard?

Green campaigners are demanding the right to trespass wherever and whenever they want.

CFACT senior policy analyst Bonner Cohen details efforts at CFACT.org by a Green group, the “Western Watershed Project,” to overturn property protection laws in Wyoming.

“Outrage over widespread reports of trespassing on rural property, together with the dismissal of WWP’s water-quality data by Wyoming officials, prompted legislators last year to pass two new trespassing bills, both of which were signed into law by Republican Gov. Matt Mead. ‘Under the previous trespass laws, the burden was on the landowner to show that people were trespassing and some of our courts were not prosecuting,’ Brett Moline, director of public and governmental affairs for the Wyoming Farm Bureau, which supports the new laws, told the Wall Street Journal (Feb.19). Moline says the new laws put the burden on the person collecting data to know when he or she is on private land.”

We have federal, state and local environmental protection laws and personnel in place.  Often too many.

We don’t need self-appointed Green vigilantes showing up on our land wherever they please.

Thank God for the Past’s Global Warming Here in Minnesota!

There seems to be the rise of two religions ascending in this new year of our Lord, 2016 radiating victory over all. One is American president, Barack Hussein Obama’s favorite, Militant Islam out of the Near East supporting the spread by politics, bombs, word and sword of Islam in the name of Allah.

The second religion arises from the West, the American left, primarily from those married to the United Nations where Islamists outnumber our America by more than 50 votes, and Europeans, frightened to death about the spread of Islamic terrors, add the count to about 85 to one.

It is the current popular worship of the angry gods of global warming, programming, praying to return our Minnesota and neighbors to icier roots, back to the cooler million year era which ended about 10,000 years ago  around our state.

About 50,000 years ago the area from where I am writing these notes would have been buried under about a mile’s thickness of rather cold, but politically “friendly” to Democrats, glacial ice.

The following information was found at Wikipedia:

“The glacial history of Minnesota is most defined since the onset of the last glacial period, which ended some 10,000 years ago. Within the last million years, most of the Midwestern United States and much of Canada were covered at one time or another with an ice sheet. This continental glacier had a profound effect on the surface features of the area over which it moved. Vast quantities of rock and soil were scraped from the glacial centers to its margins by slowly moving ice and redeposited as drift or till. Much of this drift was dumped into old preglacial river valleys, while some of it was heaped into belts of hills (terminal moraines) at the margin of the glacier. The chief result of glaciation has been the modification of the preglacial topography by the deposition of drift over the countryside.”

“Northern Hemisphere glaciation during the last ice ages. The creation of 3 to 4 kilometres (1.9 to 2.5 mi) thick ice sheets caused a global sea level drop of about 120 m (390 ft)” Information from your local Wikipedia.
