Last Sunday October 12th, 2014 President Obama reached a huge milestone in his Presidency. An achievement that will define his presidency for generations to come. Sunday President Obama took a trip to Virginia. At Fort Belvoir President Obama played his 200th round of golf sense becoming President.

ISIL is marching a crossed the Middle East. We have a United States Marine still being held in a Mexican Prison. American Wages are stagnate. Ebola is spreading like wildfire a crossed Africa. Sunday the second case of Ebola in the United States was discovered. The devil dances, and the world burns all while President Obama swings a club.

President Bush did many things that I do not agree with. He made many mistakes. However, he stopped playing Golf in 2003, because as he said, “I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf. I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.” What signal is President Obama sending?

ISIL, a terrorist group bent on reestablishing an Islamic Caliphate in the Middle East, has dominated the news in recent months. Their extremist views, and alarming ability to gain and control territory has been alarming for anyone with functional gray matter occupying the space in between their ears. President Obama was slow to respond to the threat posed by ISIL, going as far as to call them the JV Team. His progressive zealots spread out a crossed the land, spreading like wild fire, mocking and ridiculing anyone who even dared to mention the word caliphate.
After building a 60 nation collation, after thousands of lives were lost, after the violent execution of several American and British reporters, President Obama was finally forced to act. He sent 3,000 soldiers to fight Ebola, and decided on precision air strikes. After the first night of airstrikes we were told that they managed to hit key Al-Qaeda (they refuse to use the name Al-Qaeda because President Obama would have to admit he lied about decimating Al-Qaeda) targets.
We all “know” that President Obama is always “successful”. He is the smartest man in the room, so his plans never fail. Look how well the porkulus bill worked. Look how well Obamacare is working. We have seen President Obama constantly sounding off the praises of his own magnificence. We hear about how great the economy is growing, despite record high levels of nonparticipation, record numbers of people on food stamps, and stagnate wages. WE hear about how great Obamacare is, despite thousands upon thousands of people losing their insurance, sky rocketing premiums, and a complete failure of the subsidies that were intended to make Obamacare “work”.
President Obama is always eager to tell the world how great he is, and how he was right and you are all morons. So what is one to conclude about the exchange between the latest White House Monkey Josh Earnest and Ed Henry.
Fox New reporter Ed Henry asked Press Secretary Josh Earnest a very direct question about the air strikes against ISIL. “Are we winning”
Earnest: “I’m sorry?”
Henry: “Are we winning?”
Earnest: “Again, we are talking about a coalition of 60 nations working closely with Iraqi security forces and working to build up Syrian opposition fighters. And there is no doubt that we can point to the success in the early days.”
Henry: “Are we winning?”
Earnest: “I mean, when you say we, we’re talking about a coalition of 60 nations working closely with Iraq”
Henry: “So we are winning?”
Earnest: “And yes, we are succeeding in this effort”
I do not know how Ed Henry could have made the question any easier. Are we winning? That is a simple question. Really it is a soft ball question, a chance for the White House to look positive in an area where they have been an international embarrassment for six years. President Obama is always quick to promote his failures as successes, even something as devastating as Obamacare… how bad must the fight against ISIL be going if even this narcissistic administration is afraid to say that we are winning?

Former Speaker of The House Nancy Pelosi, a member of the progressive trinity, is well known for being a progressive ideological zealot. She walks the progressive line, and is a very useful attack dog. Her blind ideological loyalty blinds her to the truth, a disaster for progressives, Christmas day for conservatives.
One of her famous gaffs came during the last budget battle over the debt ceiling. Way back in September 2013, just before Harry Reid shut down the government, Nancy Pelosi said on CNN’s State of The Union that President Obama should not negotiate on the debt ceiling. Her stated reason for not negotiating was that there where “no more cuts to make”. She said, “The cupboard is bare. There’s no more cuts to make.” She then continued, “It’s really important that people understand that. We all want to reduce the deficit.” She stated that “You cannot have just more cuts just for the sake of cuts.”
Well we all know what happened, President Obama and Harry Reid followed Nancy Pelosi’s recommendation, refused to negotiate, and they shut the government down from October 1st, to October 16th. Harry Reid went so far as to refuse to restore funding to children cancer research, saying “Why would I want to do that”. Thanks to the media acting as the propaganda wing of the progressive movement, and the limp wristed nature of Establishment Republicans (John McCain, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell), the shutdown was blamed on the GOP. So how could one conclude that Ms. Pelosi’s comments are a cause for alarm and embarrassment amongst progressives and Democrats?
The answer, as always, can be found in the world of reality. Progressivism is like a parasite, devastating and destructive when able to feast off of a host. However the unbridled destruction brought by the progressive parasite comes to a grinding halt once the host dies. Like a virus in a petri dish progressivism cannot survive in the real world. Progressive ideology cannot survive when analyzed in the REAL world. When forced to face the hammer of truth, claims of progressives crumble like leafs in the wind.
Over a year has passed sense Ms. Pelosi made her comments, claiming that there is nothing left to cut. We have a year of data to reveal whether or not she was right. If she was right, it is disastrous for conservatives. If she was wrong, it can mean only one of two things. Either she is massively incompetent, or she was deliberately lying and trying to capitalize on the fears of the American People.
Representative John Mica (R-Fla), and Representative Gerry Connolly (D-Va) asked the GAO to update the 2008 audit. The audit found millions in fraudulent spending by federal employees, and called for federal agencies to tighten up rules pertaining to spending. What could have prompted a Republican and a Democrat to demand action on a hot button issue, during an election year?
Several Inspector Generals have released reports in the last several years that a sizable portion of tax payer dollars bought on government credit cards are fraudulent and unapproved. Janet Kasper from the EPA office of Inspector General, admitted in 2012 that of 80 transactions, 75 of them were not in compliance. The sum total of those fraudulent transactions was $80,000. Two employees of the EPA would like to thank you for their family’s gym membership. By the EPA’s own estimates that there is nearly a 50% fraud rate.
Another example comes from Elliot Lewis from the Department of Labor Office of Inspector General April audit found that 900,000 of our hard earn dollars where wasted on a student job program. The program was for at risk youth, and provided these students with pre-paid cards for outlined expenses. In the last few years inspectors have found that some of these cards are being used for haircuts, clothing purchases, online ticket purchases. Elliot Lewis admits that at least 35% of the cards where misused.
One could easily say that “there is no way Nancy Pelosi could have known this, these reports have come out sense she made her statement.” However the damning evidence for the former speaker comes in the for form of the 2008 GAO Audit. The 2008 GAO Audit found that nearly half of all government credit card purchases where fraudulent. Knowing full well that millions of dollars were spent fraudulently by government employees Ms. Pelosi was able to look the American People in the eyes and say “there’s no more cuts to make.”
Harry Reid and his progressive allies shut down the government because of the think that Ms. Pelosi constantly promotes. This idea that we cannot cut spending is outrageous. We spend trillions every year, there is no way a sentient being can conclude that there is no waste that can be trimmed. Every time Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi open their mouths I know eventually it will be a field day for sentient beings. Because either Nancy Pelosi feels that funding haircut and flat screen tvs for government employees is a valid use of tax payer dollars, or she was willing to lie and put Americans at risk to gain political bonus points.

Actress and musician Raven-Symone famous for her roles on the Cosby Show and That’s So Raven, has shocked the world, and gave this writer hope for humanity. Raven ruffled feathers when in an interview with Oprah had the audacity to say that she was tired of labels. Raven told Oprah “I’m tired of being labeled. I’m an American. I’m not African American; I’m an American.”

Well as you can imagine this did not sit well with Oprah. She is a progressive, and progressivism mandates a divided and segmented society. One united culture is too hard to control, and cannot be allowed. Now Oprah was in shock that this young woman would say something like this, clearly she just misspoke. So Oprah said, “Oh, girl, don’t set Twitter on fire. Oh my lord what did you just say?”

Raven responded, “I mean, I don’t know where my roots go to. I don’t know how far back they go…I don’t know what country in Africa I’m from, but I do know that my roots are in Louisiana. I’m an American. And that’s a colorless person.” I have a lot of respect for Raven for this statement. Her she is a young celebrity, facing down a legend like Oprah. Oprah expressed disdain for her bold statement, but Raven did not back pedal.

This is a view point I wish more people had. I always hear people say things like I am German, I’m Irish, I’m an African American, when most of these people have never seen the Atlantic Ocean, let alone cross it. Yes your ancestors may have come from Ireland, they may have come from Africa, the key word in those sentences is not the country. The key word is “come”, your ancestors CAME from one country to this country. It is important to remember where they came from, but you were born here. If you are the fifth generation to be raised in a community in the Midwest, you are not German.

I love the idea of immigration, and the mingling of cultures, that is how we grow as a people. America is a smelting pot, and that is not a bad thing. Iron is a strong metal, and was used for centuries to make weapons, tools, and structures. However, while iron is very strong, it is very brittle. When combined with carbon, iron becomes steal, stronger and less likely to shatter. Steal is very good, but when combined with nickel, suddenly steel becomes stainless steel. In all these cases once the material enters the smelting pot, the impurities are burned away and the resulting metal is stronger, lighter, better. So too has been the example in American History. For over a hundred years that is how American society worked. Immigrants came, brought bits of their homeland with them, and our culture grew.

That is not how progressives see it, this strong unified society is a bad thing. Progressives rule by division, by keeping people at odds with one another. That makes it easier to stay in power and push radical ideologies through. “vote for me, or these people will crush you”. That is why Oprah had to try and correct Raven, give her a chance to fall back into line. She warned Raven that she was going to “get a lot of flak for saying you’re not African-American.I want you to say what you really mean by that.” I mean clearly Raven is confused, she has forgotten that she is supposed to hate all cultures, and walk around with a chip on her shoulder.

Raven responded with “What I really mean by that is I’m an American. That’s what I really mean.” That response made my day, mean what you say, and say what you mean. Anyways she continued, “I have darker skin. I have a nice, interesting grade of hair. I connect with caucasian. I connect with Asian. I connect with black. I connect with Indian. I connect with each culture.” That is how this country is supposed to be. We are supposed to be able to connect to everyone, because we are supposed to be one nation, not a thousand nations divided down racial divides. Progressives will destroy Raven for not towing the line. She will be destroyed, as Sarah Palin was. She was a smart woman, who dared to associate with the GOP. She was a successful woman, who did not support abortion, so she had to be destroyed.

Raven has the right idea, unfortunately progressives Zealots will destroy her for daring to disagree with the idea that she is supposed to be an African American first and foremost, an American if she gets the time.

There was another case of some atheist teen who made a “huge moral stand” against the old world dogma presented in the vitriolic rhetoric contained within the Pledge of Allegiance. I really am not interested in another story about how some atheist refused to stand and say the Pledge of Allegiance because it contains the words “under God”.  I don’t care, because I see these displays for what they really are.  These little displays of “public outrage” are nothing more than an attempt to get attention. This students stand against the pledge was no different. It is nothing more than another salvo in the progressives war on religion. Unfortunately many of the foot soldiers have no idea that they are fighting a war. They have no clue that there beliefs are being exploited to achieve the political goals of the progressive monarchs. Every time I see one of these “stands for the separation of church and state”, I laugh because I see through the shenanigans.

Let us look at an example of religion causing someone to be offended. A young child comes into his elementary school class and there is a Christmas Tree in the corner. This student is Jewish, and is the only student in the class room who does not celebrate Christmas. It is not hard to see how that young child could be offended. They do not celebrate Christmas, they do not believe that Jesus is the lord and savior.  They are sitting alone in a the classroom, feeling pressures from the kids in the classroom. I could see how this could be a problem.

Another example. The owner of a small business, they sell hobby supplies. They have a set of core Christian values that they live their lives by. A group of people start demanding that they pay for a product that violates the religious principles that they live their lives by. It is easy to see how these business owners would be offended that by the demands of this outside group.

In both of these examples you are dealing with people whose beliefs are being challenged.  These people believe in an eternal afterlife, one that will either be spent in ever lasting paradise or in an undying hell.  When you are pushing people to violate their core beliefs, beliefs that they hold based on achieving access to heaven, naturally this is going to cause outrage.

Now we come to the issue of atheist and their desire to live life without religion. Their belief that humans are slabs of meat devoid of virtue. They live, they die, then rot in the ground. There is no soul to a human being. All we are vanishes into the darkness in an instant. Their belief in rotting in the ground is unaffected by the actions of people who do have faith.  If you do not believe in a higher power, what does it hurt you to say, “under God”?  If there is no God, then what does it mater if you say under God? If God is not real, the words mean nothing. If you are going to rot in the ground, face the inevitable eternity of nothingness regardless of your actions, than what harm is there in saying the words “under God”? There isn’t any.

So these people claiming that their lack of belief is offended by meaningless words, are just trying to bring attention to themselves. They are just unknowing foot soldiers in the progressives war on religion. Why would someone who does not believe in God make a stink about saying meaningless words? It does not make sense.  The Pledge might as well say “One Nation carburetor neutrons”, why do they care? They have been conditioned to care, conditioned to think that they are fighting a noble cause. They are fighting to preserve religious freedom, when all they are doing is fighting to end it.  A progressive state cannot exist when the peoples loyalty are to God first, state second. They have to destroy God, because our rights now come from God. Because our rights come from God, man cannot take them away.  Destroy God, and suddenly our rights become the tangible play things of power hungry tyrants.

I feel bad for many of these atheists because they do not even know that they are unwilling foot soldiers in the progressives war.
