Piers Morgan Rails Against Guns in America; Ignores Burning of Aborted Fetuses in England!

By John W. Lillpop

Piers Morgan has finally been booted from CNN and is in full retreat across the big pond en route to Limeyville, and not a moment too soon!

Thus, we the people have succeeded in bringing about the de facto removal of a self-righteous, pompous twit whose unsolicited, unhelpful views about guns in America have contributed immensely to the demise of a major outlet of the Democrat Party, otherwise known as CNN.

For THAT, we patriots owe Morgan an enormous debt of gratitude!

Morgan made his final exit from CNN on March 28 with a predictable bashing of the National Rifle Association, and of law-abiding Americans who own guns for self-defense and recreational hunting.

So, even after three plus humiliating years of low ratings and rejection, Morgan ended his tenure without a fundamental understanding of America’s love affair with guns:

To wit, were it not for guns and courageous American patriots willing to use those guns in pursuit of liberty, America would still be a third-rate, dependent colony, beholden to  Britain and forced to yield to the brutal tyranny of British royalty, while speaking a bastardized, limey version of English!

In other words, Mr. Morgan, America is the great and free nation we are today because guns enabled us to liberate our selves from the limey insanity of the failing British empire!

America is free today because we refused to give in to tyranny and foreign occupation of our nation.

We intend to keep it that way!

Before vacating the anti-American propaganda studios of CNN, Morgan issued one final, feeble attempt to convince America that his views, not those of we the people, would best serve American interests.

In the most shrill pomposity imaginable, Morgan, as recounted in the reference, lectured America with this blathering:

"The gun lobby in America has bullied this country's politicians into a cowardly silence," he hectored, one last time. "My point is simple: more guns doesn't mean less crime, as the NRA repeatedly tries to tell you."

While Morgan was unjustly taking the NRA and our 2nd Amendment to task, breaking news from jolly old England suggests that Morgan would be well advised to get his intrusive nose out of American politics and concern himself with doings in Britain, where barbaric stupidity is waged against the most innocent of peoples---the unborn.

As reported at reference 2:

The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals, an investigation has found.
Ten NHS trusts have admitted burning fetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in ‘waste-to-energy’ plants which generate power for heat.
Last night the Department of Health issued an instant ban on the practice which health minister Dr Dan Poulter branded ‘totally unacceptable.’
At least 15,500 fetal remains were incinerated by 27 NHS trusts over the last two years alone, Channel 4’s Dispatches discovered.
It was found that parents who lose children in early pregnancy were often treated without compassion and were not consulted about what they wanted to happen to the remains.

Bottom line:  Mr. Morgan, your nation is guilty of slaughtering innocent babies and incinerating the remains for heat!  Which leaves you and your bloody limey friends in no position to question the values of the most prosperous and successful society in human history!



Latinos Teach Vital Lesson to Obama, Democrats: Lying Has Consequences!

By John W. Lillpop

Barack Obama and other Democrat liars are finally paying the price for falsely promising “if you like your doctor and health care plan, you can keep them. Period!”, when, in fact, it was well known by The One and his fork-tongued compatriots that such promises were impossible.

In a spectacular affirmation of the fact that “lying has consequences,” The One, along with Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and vulnerable Democrats in Congress are being forced to face reality as mid-term elections loom, and as of now, portend a well-deserved trouncing of the party of donkeys.

Obama’s wanton, wicked aversion to truth has even  alienated Latinos, until now one of the most loyal constituencies of the Democrat Party, owing to Obama’s  irresponsible flaunting of the rule of law, US sovereignty, US borders, and disregard for the welfare and well-being of American citizens, in deference to illegal aliens.

As reported at the reference, Obama’s lying ways have boomeranged against the president and his Marxist health-care scam known as Obamacare:

LOS ANGELES — Ruben Acosta, a 53-year-old security guard and legal immigrant from Mexico, shoved his fears aside and made a visit to a school administration building in Compton on a Wednesday last week because he wanted health insurance.

 “A lot of Latino people don’t come because they’re afraid,” said Acosta, who brought his wife and 6-year-old granddaughter, a U.S. citizen, to the Covered California enrollment event at the Compton Unified School District.

“Obama promised that [applicants’ immigration status] information won’t be shared, but he also promised he’d pass immigration reform,” Acosta said, raising his eyebrows as he relayed reasons to be wary of government promises.

Acosta overcame his own doubts, because his health care plan from work does not cover his wife, 46-year-old Ana Acosta, who is still paying back a $5,000 emergency room bill from the last time she got sick. It also helps that most of his immediate family members are either in the U.S. legally or citizens.

Undocumented immigrants — and even many legal immigrants — are excluded entirely from the Affordable Care Act, which passed four years ago in part because Democrats were emphatic that no unauthorized immigrant would benefit from the law. Requiring the vast majority of Americans to purchase health insurance or face a fine on their taxes was controversial enough without bringing in the hot-button issue of illegal immigration. Even young undocumented immigrants who are eligible for work permits — the so-called “Dreamers” brought to America as children — will be barred from insurance under Obamacare, the administration clarified in 2012.”

Latinos, who are younger on average than the population as a whole and who make up more than 60 percent of the uninsured in California, will need to sign up for insurance in the state in droves in order to offset the costs of sicker, older people. The same holds true around the country: A third of all non-elderly, uninsured Americans are Latino, nearly 16 million in total.

But California has more undocumented immigrants than any state — two million of them — and is the only one of the three big states with large Latino populations and high numbers of uninsured to accept the expansion of Medicaid for those who are legal (Texas and Florida turned the Medicaid expansion down). That makes the enrollment effort in the Golden State especially important, and complicated.”

Once again, sanity and veracity are working in tandem to protect America from the dictatorial, fascist overreach of deluded “progressives” such as Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi!



DEMOCRAT Politicians in Corruption Spree!

By John W. Lillpop

Democrat politicians in San Francisco, North Carolina, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island are making corruption news headlines from coast-to-coast. None of the dreary crime stories involves the failed Obamacare experiment.

The stories and the associated links are listed below:

DEMOCRAT Illinois Rep Investigated for Child Pornography:

Illinois State Rep. Keith Farnham, a Democrat who represented District 43 in Elgin, has resigned.


DEMOCRAT State Sen. Leanna Washington, Pennsylvania,  Ordered To Stand Trial

Pennsylvania state prosecutors won a first step Wednesday in their corruption case against state Sen. Leanna Washington, securing a judge's ruling that they have enough evidence for a trial on charges that Washington crossed the line when she allegedly ordered taxpayer-paid employees to organize an annual "birthday party" political fundraiser.

For eight years, Washington pressured her Senate staff to devote weeks to drawing up guest lists that included city and state officials, creating invitations and taking money from invitees that ultimately went to Washington's campaign account, prosecutors say.


FBI Raids Home of DEMOCRAT Speaker of Rhode Island House

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Law enforcement officials raided the office and home of House Speaker Gordon Fox on Friday as part of a criminal investigation by the U.S. attorney's office, FBI, IRS and state police.

Officials would not say who or what was being investigated, but authorities worked for hours inside the Democratic House speaker's Statehouse office while state troopers stood outside.

Authorities entered the office carrying an evidence bag and empty cardboard boxes Friday morning. Fox's spokesman, Larry Berman, said state police had asked everyone working in the office to leave but he didn't know why.


DEMOCRAT Mayor of Charlotte Arrested for Theft, Bribery

Mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina, arrested by FBI on charges of stealing federal funds and bribery


DEMOCRAT State Sen. Leland Yee Arrested In San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO — Court documents allege a California state senator who authored gun control legislation asked for campaign donations in exchange for introducing an undercover FBI agent to an arms trafficker.

The allegations against State Sen. Leland Yee were outlined in an FBI affidavit in support of a criminal complaint unsealed Wednesday. The affidavit accuses Yee of conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and to illegally import firearms, though it's not clear the introduction to the trafficker ever took place.


Looks as though the circle of corruption is now part and parcel of the Democrat Party!

Nancy Pelosi: Growing Old, But NOT Wiser!

By John W. Lillpop

March 26, 1940. A date to remember.

For on that dreary day, in Baltimore, MD, Nancy Pelosi was born.

Three score + fourteen tears later, Pelosi has a failed gig as Speaker of the US House and a reputation as a leftist ding bat on her resume. Even so,  Pelosi still gets in the way of common sense and intelligent governance in the US House, sans the Speakers’ gavel which was pried from her reckless hands in 2010.

Over the years, while a member of the U.S. House, Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) has acquired quite a legacy for saying and doing some truly foolish things

Among her most memorable faux pas moments are the following examples:

It was imperative to pass ObamaCare in a heated rush so that Congress could then determine what was exactly in the bill.

Catholic fathers have not concluded whether or not abortion is wrong. To Pelosi, abortions are “sacred ground”

Enforcement of America’s borders & immigration laws is “un-American.”

Those who oppose building a mosque at ground zero in New York should be investigated by Congress.

Sealing off the Mexican border to prevent illegal drugs from coming into America is far too expensive and ineffective. Better to spend taxpayer money on treatment programs for those Americans actually harmed by such illegal drugs.

As regards budget cuts proposed by Republicans, Pelosi said “The cupboard is bare. There’s no more cuts to make.”

So on this her 74th birthday, a special birthday greeting seems appropriate:

Happy 74th, Nancy, and why not retire from “serving” the people?  

Do it for the children!


Whither Media, GOP Outrage Over Extravagant Obama Family Outings?

By John W. Lillpop

It’s bad enough that America is saddled with a corrupt, incompetent, clueless, anti-American Marxist in the Oval Office.

However, it’s altogether unacceptable that The One is betrothed to an equally- deluded liberal elitist who, while professing to possess a heart which bleeds incessantly for the “less advantaged,” spends lavish sums to entertain she and her teen daughters (and even her GD mother for heavens sake!) with luxury respites hither and yonder, seemingly whenever she wishes, with little or no regard for the cost to American taxpayers: that is,  we the fools who work hard and pay taxes and struggle to make ends meet in an economy which is hampered from even modest growth by the morbid, failed  tax and spend policies of her out-of-touch hubby.

How ironic that Michelle Obama, a go-to spokesperson in the Progressive war on income inequality, wage theft, and minimum-wage hysteria, is off on yet another ostentatious  sojourn, with teen children and unelected mum in tow, while the “disadvantaged” suffer the economic devastation imposed by ObamaCare and other wrong-headed actions by Democrats, implemented solely to provide Obama with what was supposed to be a legacy that would guarantee The One a reserved spot on Mount Rushmore!

The mind boggles!

But, what about the ravages of income equality? Or wage theft, made possible through confiscation of ungodly sums in income taxes, which are the means by which Michelle’s unnecessary, irrelevant, and nonsensical vacation travel is relegated to the taxpayers’ tab?

As reported, Mrs. Obama is off to China:

First Lady Michelle Obama, her daughters and her mother plan a week-long solo visit to China this month that includes meetings with China's first lady and high school and university students - and that will likely cost U.S. taxpayers millions of dollars.
President Obama and his family have come under heavy scrutiny for the unprecedented high travel costs during his time in office - and a week-long trip to China for four members of the First Family, members of the Secret Service and other members of the White House staff will likely cost several millions of dollars.
The president's pricey travels have become so controversial that Judicial Watch was forced to sue the Secret Service and Defense Department to get them to turn over records on the amount of taxpayer money used to fly the First Family all over the world - in many cases for vacations or fundraisers - over the last two years of his administration.

What the records show was startling. 

According to Judicial Watch, it cost more than $11 million for the president and his wife to travel to Africa to attend Nelson Mandela's funeral in December of last year. According to the New York Daily News, the Obamas were only in Africa for 'less than 13 hours.'
But that trip was nothing compared to a 2013 visit the Obamas made to the Dark Continent, which reportedly cost tax payer more than $100 million.
On the 2013 trip, some of the reported expenditures include the stationing of a Navy aircraft carrier off the coast of Africa equipped with a fully staffed medical trauma center, military cargo planes to fly a fleet of 56 support vehicles to transport the Obamas - complete with 14 limousines and three trucks carrying bulletproof glass to cover the windows of the hotels where the Obamas were to stay - and fighter jets that flew in shifts to provide coverage over the president's airspace for the entire trip.
In June, the first lady went to Ireland for a two-day trip. The cost to taxpayers: $5 million.
Michelle Obama reportedly stayed at a $3,300-per-night hotel in Dublin, and needed to book 30 rooms at the posh Shelbourne Hotel for her staff and security detail.
For two vacations the Obamas took in 2013 - one to Hawaii and one to Martha's Vineyard - records show that it cost taxpayers a whopping $7,396,531 in flight expenses alone.
That figure also includes travel expenses for the president's trip to California to file the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
During an August trip to California, during which Obama attended a party held by Democratic fundraiser Jeffrey Katzenberg and again appeared on the Tonight Show, taxpayers paid more than $2 million in travel expenses for the president and his security detail.
The president will not be joining his family on what will be the first lady's first visit to the Asian economic powerhouse.
In an announcement on the White House blog, the first lady says a China visit is important because it is the most populous country in the world, with more than 1.3 billion people, and is an important world actor.
Mrs. Obama will travel from March 19-26, spending several days in the capital of Beijing before stops in the central city of Xian and the southwestern city of Chengdu, the White House said. Her schedule includes a meeting with Peng Liyuan, the wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping.”

No question about it, Michelle, her two daughters, and mum will spend  millions of taxpayer dollars, but exactly for what?

Wouldn't  it be more humane and "progressive" to spend those millions on the disadvantaged  and middle-class Americans who languish in poverty, and worse, because of Obamacare and other liberal miscalculations?

For example, why not have the Obama females stay at home and use the cost savings to pay off a few hundred mortgages in foreclosure?  Or pay off a few hundred student loans?  Or pay unaffordable Obamacare premiums for the disadvantaged?

Adding to the distress is the fact that Republicans in Congress have done nothing to challenge or question the Obama rape of the American taxpayer.

Why is that so, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner?

On March 31, Happy Birthday, Dr. Michael Savage!

By John W. Lillpop

California is world renowned for goofy politics and politicians, leftist lunacy, and just plain craziness. That insanity obviously spills over to the manner by which priorities are established here in the Golden State.

For example, political commentary  superstar Dr. Michael Savage hosts a nationally syndicated radio talk show from San Francisco that is carried by about 410 stations, reaches 10-14 million listeners every week, and is one of the last vestiges of hope for free speech and pro-American sentiment in the media.

Dr. Savage is truly an extraordinary citizen and man of distinction. Consider a partial list of his accomplishments:

* Holds two Masters Degrees and a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley;

* Authored 24 books, including four New York Times Best Sellers;

* Hugely popular talk show host in the same league as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity;

* Introduced term "compassionate conservative" to properly describe conservatives who favor smaller, less intrusive government;

* Staunch defender of American sovereignty, rule of law, preservation of American borders, language, and culture.

With these credentials to his credit, one would expect California to be rightfully proud of this favorite son. Perhaps even set aside a day to commemorate the contributions made by this extremely talented man?

Say, March 31, for instance? That particular date just happens to be the birthday of Dr. Michael Savage!

Why not designate March 31 as "Michael Savage Day" throughout the length and breadth of our great state?

Close the schools, shut down the state and local bureaucracies and dedicate the entire day to celebrating the birth and life of Dr. Michael Savage?

What is that, you say? March 31 is already a state holiday in California to commemorate the birthday of the late Cesar Chavez?

Can you imagine? A brilliant author, educator, radio broadcaster, and advocate for America is all but ignored, while the entire state shuts down to remember the birthday of a grape picker and union organizer?

Only in California!


Obamacare ‘Glitch’ Leaves Nevada Man Holding Bag for $407,000 in Medical Bills!

By John W. Lillpop

From Harry Reid’s home state of Nevada, comes another “untrue horror story” about the awful failures of Obamacare.

As reported:

The hospital bills are hitting Larry Basich’s mailbox.

That would be OK if Basich had health insurance. But he doesn’t.

Thing is, he should be covered. Basich, 62, bought a plan through the state’s Nevada Health Link insurance exchange in the fall. He’s been paying monthly premiums since November.

Yet the Las Vegan is stranded in a no-man’s-land where no carrier claims him, and his tab is mounting: Basich owes $407,000 for care received in January and February, when his policy was supposed to be in effect. Instead, he’s covered only for March and beyond.

Basich said he began trying to enroll on Oct. 1, the day the exchange website went live. Like many consumers, he fought technical flaws during multiple sign-up attempts. In mid-November he finally got through and chose his plan: UnitedHealthcare’s MyHPNSilver1.

“It was like reaching the third level of Doom,” Basich said of the torturous sign-up process.

Basich paid his first premium on Nov. 21, and within days the exchange withdrew the $160.77 payment from his money-market savings account. Because Basich paid a month before the Dec. 23 deadline, his coverage was to begin Jan. 1.

Basich’s predicament went critical on Dec. 31, when he had a heart attack. His treatment, which included a triple bypass on Jan. 3, resulted in $407,000 in medical bills in January and February that no insurer is covering.

Why have four months passed without a resolution?

 Basich has sought help at virtually every level of the system, from the Xerox customer-service reps who answer the phones at the exchange’s Henderson call center all the way to Gov. Brian Sandoval and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Both Sandoval’s and Reid’s offices have told him they want to help, Basich said, but there’s been no resolution so far.

Even Reid, who took flak for his Feb. 26 statement that “all” Obamacare “horror stories” are “untrue,” is trying to help. Reid spokeswoman Kristen Orthman said one of the senator’s health-care legislative aides has been on the phone with Basich almost daily, “but at this point it’s in the hands of Xerox (Exchange) to see what can be done.”

Perhaps Reid could actually help Basich and others like him by abandoning the denial and accusations against very sick people who are being harmed by the DEMOCRAT monster known as Obamacare!

How about putting people above politics for a change, Harry?



Seeing Through the Vaunted “Transparency” of Barack!

By John W. Lillpop

One of the early lies promulgated by Barack Obama, after his seizure of the Oval Office, was a pledge to the American people that his administration would be “the most transparent” in history.

For the record, The one’s earliest lie as president came on January 20, 2009 when, with his right hand raised, he affirmed the presidential oath of office by saying,

“I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

As we the people have learned, our pathetic Community Organizer had no intention of even trying to live up to that oath. His was the path of ‘fundamentally transforming’ America from a vibrant nation of laws and decency into a third-world dictatorship where the words of Lenin, Marx, and Stalin replaced the utterances of Washington, Madison, and the Founders as pearls of great wisdom.

As to the transparency scam, even bastions of liberal double-talk have seen through the Obama smoke screen.

As reported:

The Obama administration has a way to go to fulfill its promises from Day 1 to become the most transparent administration in history.
More often than ever, the administration censored government files or outright denied access to them last year under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act, cited more legal exceptions it said justified withholding materials and refused a record number of times to turn over files quickly that might be especially newsworthy, according to a new analysis of federal data by The Associated Press.
Most agencies also took longer to answer records requests.
The government's own figures from 99 federal agencies covering six years show that halfway through its second term, the administration has made few meaningful improvements in the way it releases records. In category after category - except for reducing numbers of old requests and a slight increase in how often it waived copying fees - the government's efforts to be more open about its activities last year were their worst since President Barack Obama took office.
In a year of intense public interest over the National Security Agency's surveillance programs, the government cited national security to withhold information a record 8,496 times - a 57 percent increase over a year earlier and more than double Obama's first year, when it cited that reason 3,658 times. The Defense Department, including the NSA, and the CIA accounted for nearly all those. The Agriculture Department's Farm Service Agency cited national security six times, the Environmental Protection Agency did twice and the National Park Service once.
And five years after Obama directed agencies to less frequently invoke a "deliberative process" exception to withhold materials describing decision-making behind the scenes, the government did it anyway, a record 81,752 times.
"I'm concerned the growing trend toward relying upon FOIA exemptions to withhold large swaths of government information is hindering the public's right to know," said Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. "It becomes too much of a temptation. If you screw up in government, just mark it `top secret.'"

For the uninformed, Patrick Leahy is hardly a right-wing nut. His concern should cause all to reflect soberly.

Most “transparent administration in history”?

Believe that and you would probably fall for his sales pitch about keeping your doctor and health-care plan under Obamacare!

The One’s latest poll numbers from Gallup show 39 % approval---which means that lack of transparency surrounding the  health care debate has been penetrated and truth is emerging!

After Long Struggle, Conservative Group in Hollywood Granted Non-Profit Status by IRS

By John W. Lillpop

It took three long years of scrutiny by the IRS, but the Conservative group Friends of Abe based in Hollywood has finally been granted non-profit status!

As reported at the reference:

Hollywood’s largest fellowship of conservatives and right-of-center independents, Friends of Abe, has been granted 501(c)3 non-profit status by the Internal Revenue Service, about three years after it first sought the designation.

 The organization has operated as a fellowship for conservatives in an industry with a leftward tilt. Launched almost 10 years ago, it has included such figures as Kelsey Grammer, Jon Voight and Gary Sinise among its members, and a roster of speakers that has included Paul Ryan, Herman Cain, Eric Cantor and, most recently, Ted Cruz.

“We feel validated that the IRS agreed with our assessment that the nature of our organization is that it is not a political organization,” a spokesman said.

Friends of Abe faced an extended period of scrutiny as it sought the status, a delay that raised suspicions that it had gotten caught up in the same type of IRS review of organizations, including Tea Party groups, that had sought 501(c)4 status, which are allowed some limited political and lobbying activity. The revelations that the IRS put greater scrutiny on applicants based on their names or political affiliation drew considerable furor last year.

“We feel the outcome is the right outcome, but after three years it is hard to be really enthusiastic. It is just a relief,” a spokesperson said. “There are a lot of other organizations that are probably in a similar situation.”

No doubt Obama’s brain-washed spin meisters will see this as validation of  The One’s claim that there was not a “smidgen of corruption” at the IRS, while continuing to slam the public hearings chaired by Darrell Issa (R-CA) of the House Oversight Committee.

Bottom Line: Lois Lerner plead the fifth in two appearances before Congress.  If there is “not a smidgen of corruption” why won't Lerner answer questions?



Obama Preaches Constitutionality & Sovereignty in “Rejecting” Crimea Vote!

By John W. Lillpop

Millions of Crimean voters voted in favor of joining Russia in a referendum staged on Sunday.  Indications are that upwards of 90 percent of the voters said YES to secession.

Meanwhile Barack Obama, America’s messianic president, the one who deliberately acts in defiance of the US Constitution, the Congress, and in violation of codified US law, warned that "Russia's actions were in violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity and that, in coordination with our European partners, we are prepared to impose additional costs on Russia for its action.”

In other words, the man who imposed an unwieldy, unworkable  health-care law on American citizens who opposed the law, has the gall to preach integrity and right versus wrong to Vladimir Putin!

Indeed, the man who refuses to enforce the terms of existing US immigration law, and cedes not to citizens, but rather to illegal aliens, is hypocritically expressing concern about “sovereignty” of the Ukrainian people.

The man who stood with the nation of Mexico against the state of Arizona as that state sought to defend its citizenry against illegal invasions now feels compelled to take territorial integrity seriously.

Has there even been a more blatantly foolish argument in the history of the American presidency?

Does Obama really believe that HIS rejection of the referendum is of greater significance that the 90 percent plus of the Crimean people who voted in favor?


As African-American Citizens Languish in Misery, The One Frets over Non-Citizen Invaders!

As African-American Citizens Languish in Misery, The One Frets over Non-Citizen Invaders!

By John W. Lillpop

It is no secret that African-American CITIZENS continue to suffer the dismal effects of the Obama economy even as meager signs of recovery crop up elsewhere in the nation.

Unemployment and poverty among African-American citizens are at  unprecedented levels.

However, while African-American citizens struggle to survive, Barack Obama remains focused on growing the Democrat Party by acting outside the US Constitution to aid and abet illegal aliens, foreign invaders who have ignored US borders and immigration laws.

As reported at the reference, Obama’s disregard for the rule of law and active scorn for the plight of American citizens of color is becoming more and more a part of the Obama legacy:

President Barack Obama has launched an internal review on how he can provide additional leniency to illegal aliens inside the United States of America, the White House announced on Thursday evening.

Obama "has asked Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson to do an inventory of the Department’s current practices to see how it can conduct enforcement more humanely within the confines of the law," the White House said in a Thursday press release.

Obama’s announcement that he would seek to grant more executive amnesty to illegal aliens came after he met with three Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) members on Thursday -- CHC chairman Rep. Ruben Hinojosa and Reps. Luis Gutierrez and Xavier Becerra. Hispanic lawmakers have complained vociferously of late about the number of deportations executed by the Obama administration.

"The president emphasized his deep concern about the pain too many families feel from the separation that comes from our broken immigration system," the White House said in its readout from the meeting.

A Senate GOP aide told Breitbart News that these concerns are overblown because about two-thirds of what the amnesty advocacy community is considering deportations are actually removals of people caught as they were trying to cross the border. Johnson recently admitted as such in a congressional hearing.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)—the law enforcement agency that handles deportations from the nation’s interior—reports that 98 percent of 2013 deportations were of convicted criminals, people who just crossed the border, or people who illegally re-entered the U.S. after being deported before.”

Once again, this president is working to undermine the rule of law with false scenarios and insincere compassion.

Haunting Question: Why are leaders in the black community reticent about stepping forward and boldly demanding that Obama serve US citizens first, and forget the play- acting for tens of millions of invaders who have no right to even be here?



Dr. Joycelyn Elders: Former Clinton Surgeon General, Still Ruffling Feathers!

By John W. Lillpop

“Old lefties never die, they just keep coming back,” seems an appropriate way to explain the essence of Dr. Joycelyn Elders, a relic from the first administration of President Bill Clinton.

Elders lasted just a few months in the post of Surgeon General until her controversial views on drugs and sex became too much for even Slick Willie to countenance. She was dismissed from the Clinton cabinet in 1994, before Bill Clinton’s sordid sexual life became headline news with the Monica Lewinsky affair.

The good doc has been not heard from until a recent “Independent” commission concluded that “there is no compelling medical reason” for the US armed forces to prohibit transgender Americans from serving.

The commission was led by---Dr. Elders, now 80 years old--- and a leading advocate for alternative lifestyle choices.

In Republican circles, she is jokingly called the “Granny for Tranny” doc from Arkansas!

As reported at the reference:

SAN FRANCISCO— An independent commission led by a former U.S. surgeon general has concluded there “is no compelling medical reason” for the U.S. armed forces to prohibit transgender Americans from serving and that President Barack Obama could lift the decades-old ban without approval from Congress, according to a report being released Thursday.

“We determined not only that there is no compelling medical reason for the ban, but also that the ban itself is an expensive, damaging and unfair barrier to health care access for the approximately 15,450 transgender personnel who serve currently in the active, Guard and reserve components,” said the commission led by Dr. Joycelyn Elders, who served as surgeon general during Bill Clinton’s first term as president, and Rear Adm. Alan Steinman, a former chief health and safety director for the Coast Guard.”

The good doc even went the extra mile by informing the nation that 15,540 transgender personnel could be set free by virtue of an Executive Order signed by The One, thereby continuing the assault on the Constitution and the Congress.

And why not?

After all, given the relative calm in international affairs and the all-around good feelings domestically, why should Barack Obama not issue an Executive Order that would take the nation back to the  Clinton presidency, just in time to remind we the people of the moral decadence that surrounded Hillary Rodham Clinton in the 1990s?



Barack: So Much Left to Destroy, So Little Time!

By John W. Lillpop

Taking a page out of Jane Fonda’s weepy wailing about her immortality and time-limited future, Barack Obama lamented recently about his unfinished agenda and the “ticking clock” which threatens to short-circuit his pledge to “fundamentally transform” the greatest society in human history.

Apparently, The One is feeling the pinch of time as he strives to turn America into a third-world failed state; overwhelmed by entitlement debt where a generation of losers like Susan Fluke actually believe that society owes them subsidized abortion and birth control services, and whom is encouraged in that cynical belief by mindless liberals like Nancy Pelosi who views responsible citizenship as “old school” malarkey; inundated by tens of millions of non-English speaking, unskilled foreign illegal aliens who do not respect the rule of law anymore than The One, and who believe they are entitled to the American Dream as a God-given privilege owed their ethnicity; a severely- wounded American eagle on the world stage no longer feared, or even respected, by US allies or adversaries, to the detriment of Americans everywhere; and a tyrant state where individual freedoms are replaced by a Big Brother mentality which spies, intercepts, and abuses every form of communication, in the name of national security.

As reported, Barack’s angst brings watery eyes of sympathy only to those who really hate America:

President Obama knows that his time is almost up. It's a point he's making to liberal Democratic donors to get them to donate generously in this year's mid-term election.

At a Democratic fundraiser last night in New York City, President Obama said, "I hope you will all step up because, although I'm very optimistic about our long-term trends, the notion that we would waste two years in further inaction rather than move boldly on a path that I think all of us in this room agree on -- we don't have time to waste."

The president continued, "I don't have time to waste.  The clock is ticking.  There’s less than two years left -- less than three years left.  I want to squeeze every last little bit of work that I can during the remainder of my term so that, looking back, I'm going to be able to say that we left everything on the field and every single person I could help in this office -- which is such an incredible privilege -- I helped."

But before that, Obama also took an opportunity in the middle of the fundraiser, to tweak Democrats. "And the fact of the matter is that Democrats are not without our flaws.  We have our blind spots and we have our dogmas and we've got our crazy folks," Obama said as the crowd laughed.”

The really big question: Can America survive two or three more years of “help” from Barack Obama?  



Jolly Good News for Republicans in Florida!

By John W. Lillpop

In what Republicans hope is a bell weather of the mid-term elections slated for November, Republican David Jolly defeated Democrat Alex Sink in Florida Tuesday night.  This election was touted as the first test of Obamacare where it really counts: Inside the voting booth!

As reported at the reference:

With almost 100 percent of the vote counted, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Sink's 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. The election was to replace 42-year Republican Rep. CW Bill Young, who died in October of cancer, and the evenly divided district had been considered a toss-up.

The implications of the dueling messages for the midterm elections inspired both parties to call in star advocates like former President Bill Clinton and former vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, in addition to blanketing the district with ads, calls and mailings. More than $11 million has been spent on the race, according to the Sunlight Foundation, a nonprofit group that tracks government information.

Jolly's election night headquarters in Clearwater Beach erupted into loud cheers as it became clear he was the winner. In his victory speech, Jolly simultaneously struck a conciliatory tone and expressed gratitude for his mentor, Young, and Young's family. Jolly was introduced by former "Price is Right" game show host Bob Barker, via video. Young's two adult sons were also onstage with Jolly, and he embraced them at the end of his speech.

Jolly didn't mention the issue that dominated much of the campaign - the president's health care package - and instead said that Pinellas County must work together. “

Although this is just one election, it will be interesting to see how Democrats react: Will this defeat put pressure on Barack Obama to do more to get Obamacare off the backs of voters?



Obamacare to Exacerbate “Income Inequality”?

By John W. Lillpop

Despite what Harry Reid and other liberal ostriches are saying, Obamacare is a scourge to the very people it was supposed to benefit: Low-income and poor people.

Once again, the bitter truth of this progressive scam is being recognized and spoken out about by organized labor, one of the most faithful and patronized constituencies of the Democrat tyranny machine.

As reported at the reference, another major labor union has seen through the glitzy talk and promises of Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama concerning Obamacare, and is not amused:

A national union that represents 300,000 low-wage hospitality workers charges in a new report that Obamacare will slam wages, cut hours, limit access to health insurance and worsen the very “income equality” President Obama says he is campaigning to fix.

Unite Here warned that due to Obamacare's much higher costs for health insurance than what union workers currently pay, the result will be a pay cut of up to $5 an hour. "If employers follow the incentives in the law, they will push families onto the exchanges to buy coverage. This will force low-wage service industry employees to spend $2.00, $3.00 or even $5.00 an hour of their pay to buy similar coverage," said the union in a new report.

“Only in Washington could asking the bottom of the middle class to finance health care for the poorest families be seen as reducing inequality,” said the report from Unite Here. “Without smart fixes, the ACA threatens the middle class with higher premiums, loss of hours, and a shift to part-time work and less comprehensive coverage,” said the report, titled, “The Irony of Obamacare: Making Inequality Worse.”

When will labor unions learn that progressive “solutions” which are based on stealing wealth and redistributing same to more preferred constituencies, will never solve anything.

Listen up, labor: Liberal politicians are, despite what they say, the enemy of working families! And do not forget to vote this November!



Barack, a Victim of “Job Lock”?

By John W. Lillpop

Next to income inequality and minimum wage stomach pains, the latest ailment among progressives is the growing outrage over ‘job lock,’ the condition that forces individuals to WORK, often in unflattering positions for less pay than wished for, rather than being free to follow the dreams promised by Utopian knot heads.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco is pushing Obamacare as a solution to the strictures of job lock:

“What we see is that people are leaving their jobs because they are no longer job-locked,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters after House votes Tuesday afternoon. “They are following their aspirations to be a writer; to be self-employed; to start a business. This is the entrepreneurial piece. So it’s not going to cost jobs. It’s going to shift how people make a living and reach their aspirations.”

Pelosi said she hadn’t “fully” seen the report, but, “this was one of the goals. To give people life, a healthy life, liberty to pursue their happiness. And that liberty is to not be job-locked, but to follow their passion.”

Under the Pelosi version of demented thinking, it is not nearly enough for big government to provide high-paying jobs for everyone. Indeed, government employment nannies must now be focused on providing the  “right to pursue happiness,” whatever the hell that means.

Only a person of Pelosi’s limited awareness and acumen would even consider the ‘pursuit of happiness’ as a fundamental role to be subsidized by taxpayers!

Is there no limit to the insanity of the unchecked liberal mind?

Pelosi’s delusion of ‘job lock’ apparently resonates fairly strongly with the man currently occupying the Oval Office.

Indeed, it appears as though Barack Obama would rather be in quest of a career in the National Basketball Association, or vying for a gig as an ESPN sportscaster, or as a paid diplomat-caddy to golfer Tiger Woods.

Barack seems more suited for the rigors of hoops and bogeys than fighting an obnoxious Russian president, who is in the midst of a severe mid-life crises which threatens world peace and, if things escalate out of control, could tarnish the coveted Nobel Peace Prize purloined by The One after just a few days of residency at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Forget debt ceilings, malcontent Muslims, and obtuse Republicans!  The One deserves more congeniality and the joys of lollygaging around important issues of the day, such as March Madness and the NCAA basketball brackets!

After all, its almost Spring!

To hell with job lock!

Free Barack Obama—a position that most thinking Americans would be all too willing to accommodate as soon as possible!


Serendipity to the Rescue in California?

By John W. Lillpop

California has been in the political doldrums for so long that it’s as though the fate of the Golden State has become the exclusive province of far-left lunatics, and certain death for conservative values and common sense.

An exaggeration?

Consider the fact that the Democrat Party has enjoyed a super majority in the California state legislature, AND that the Governor’s mansion is presently occupied by Jerry Brown, known notoriously, but accurately, as  “Moon Beam,” owing to his far-left goofiness.

The liberal stranglehold on California has been aggravated by a devastating drought which threatened to confront the state with a water crisis of a gravity last seen 500 years ago, or so.

Hideous? Hopeless? The end?

Perhaps not!

Just last week, the Democrat-fabricated god of global warming went on a coffee break for a few days and left the skies over California unguarded. As a result, it rained, rained, and continues to rain.  Not enough to put the drought to rest, but enough to convince some of us that God is still in charge, and to reaffirm the fact that climate change is nothing but a lot of leftist hot air!

And then as mother nature was blessing California with gobs of wet stuff, another miracle surfaced.

As reported at the reference, corruption and crime, mainstays of the Democrat Party in California as is the case all across the nation, finally caught up with liberal rascals in Sacramento:

SACRAMENTO -- It took Democrats more than a century to win a supermajority in both houses of the California Legislature, but a pair of high-profile corruption cases has now cost them their dominating two-thirds majority in the state Senate in little more than a year. 

State Sen. Ronald Calderon's decision Sunday to take a paid leave of absence while he fights federal corruption charges will eliminate the supermajority his party won in 2012, threatening the policy priorities of some Democratic lawmakers and Gov. Jerry Brown.
"Suddenly, Republicans have leverage they didn't have a week ago," said Bill Whalen, a former aide to Republican Gov. Pete Wilson who works as a fellow at Stanford's Hoover Institution. "They're now in a position to name a price, and the question is: Do they have a price in mind?"

Senate Republicans are currently considering plans to formally suspend Calderon and Wright, D-Inglewood, said Peter DeMarco, a spokesman for Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff. Wright was granted leave last week after his conviction on eight felony counts of perjury and voter fraud.

California law requires that proposed constitutional amendments, new taxes and fees and ballot propositions initiated by the Legislature win support from two-thirds of the lawmakers in each house. That threshold does not change when lawmakers volunteer or are forced to vacate their seats.

Bottom line: As the rain drops fall and corrupt Democrats bail, Californians are obliged to look skyward and give thanks for a desperately needed hand-out from serendipity!

World “More Stable Than Five Years Ago,” Mr. President?

By John W. Lillpop

According to Barack Obama, the world owes a huge debt of gratitude to--- America, specifically the Obama administration---  for making the world more stable---- through our spying programs.

As reported at the reference, the One said the following before the United Nations General Assembly on September 24, 2013, during  a speech in which he justified the NSA spying programs, arguing they have helped to stabilize the world in the five years since he took office.

“As a result of this work, and the cooperation of its allies and partners, the world is more stable than it was five years ago,” the president said.”

More stable than it was five years ago, Mr. President?

In fact, over the past five years, the world has seen the following changes, brought to fruition during the abdication of leadership responsibility executed by Barack Obama:

( )Iran is five years closer to nuclear bomb;

( )Chemical weapons used in Syria;

( )Revolutions in Egypt, Libya, and other lands during Arab Spring;

( )America abandons Iraq and Afghanistan, leaving
fertile grounds for Al-Quaeda and other radical Islam groups to develop anti-American hostilities and build terrorist breeding grounds for generations to come;

( )North Korea continues to terrorize insane nuclear brinkmanship;

And to top the list, the Russians have invaded Ukraine in a military incursion that could lead to a third world war.

And you really believe the world is more stable, Mr. President?



Obama Uses Ukraine Crisis to “Do the Right Thing” on Illegal Aliens!

Satire by John W. Lillpop

On this raw Monday morning in California, it is most disconcerting to learn that the Russian Bear, presumed dead or domesticated into docile tranquility since 1989, has been resuscitated, albeit with unsolicited assistance from Barack Obama.

Apparently, Bears do not fear retreating wimps; so what did ya’ expect?

As reported in the media:

Ukraine has mobilized for war amid warnings from NATO that Russia's annexation of Crimea "threatens peace and security in Europe".

With tension nearing boiling point, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the NATO Secretary General, vowed the organization would stand by Ukraine, a nation of 46 million which occupies a vital strategic position between Europe and Russia.

Speaking before he chaired an emergency meeting of ambassadors from the 28 NATO member states, he said: "Russia must stop its military activities and its threats."
The United States dramatically intensified pressure on Moscow, threatening to remove Russia from the G8 club of developed economies.

John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, condemned Russia for what he called an "incredible act of aggression" and threatened "very serious repercussions", including Russia's possible expulsion from the G8.

Meanwhile, US President Barack Obama is pre-occupied with pen and phone in the Oval Office as he sets about the difficult task of drafting an Emergency Executive Order to deal with the invasion---- of America, by Mexico, and other nations south of the US Border.

According to anonymous sources, Obama will use an Executive Order to bypass Republican racists in Congress.

The order will grant an unconditional pardon to all aliens who entered America since November, 1986, thereby, effectively ending the illegal alien crisis and putting Mexico on notice that “this is the last 40 million” invaders that will be given amnesty and US voting rights!

A special order has also been executed ordering all branches of the Executive Branch to take all necessary steps needed to make each and every illegal alien fully eligible to vote in the November, 2014 election.

What about background investigations and concerns about terrorism, patriots ask?

We will not be bullied about by terrorists, when there is an important election to be won,” stated a high-level source who confirmed that illegal aliens will be automatically made US citizens as part of the blanket pardon.

The same source proudly pointed out the strategic brilliance employed by the president when the source said, “Illegal aliens converted into citizens via Executive Order will also be subject to immediate conscription in the US military, and placed on the borders of vulnerable Blue states to protect against Russian aggression in the homeland!”

“It’s a win-win for the White House.  The Democrat Party is made 40 million or so stronger and Vladimir Putin is blocked from invading designated blue states!”

What about Red States?

"As far as Barack is concerned, Vlady can have them!"


AP Rushes in to Calm Jitters Among Climate Change Devotees As Rains Soak California!

Satire by John W. Lillpop

The heavens literally opened up this week in California as it rained, rained, rained, and rained even some more as the Creator sponsored an elaborate advertising pitch for Morton’s Sale and against climate change mythology:

The deity theme: “When It Rains It Pours!”

The unexpected, unseasonable, and unlikely wet stuff sent climate change devotees and global warming scam artists scampering for cover as the Golden State struggled to avoid floods and other natural disasters which ensue when Mother Nature releases excess liquids from on high.

Fearing yet another massive publicity wound to the tenuous integrity of the climate change crowd, left-wing journalists, including the Omni-present Associated Press, sought to soothe ravaged nerves by reminding anti-science weasels on the left that a week of scattered rain drops simply cannot undo years of environmental abuse at the hands of white conservative males.

That would be as silly as claiming that you can add 30 million uninsured people to the ranks of the insured while cutting overall health care costs.


As reported:

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Residents in three California foothill communities headed home Sunday after a powerful storm that threatened to unleash mud on neighborhoods beneath unstable hills scarred by recent wildfires.

With the storm reduced to sprinkles, residents in the Los Angeles County cities of Glendora and Azusa were allowed back into their homes. Monrovia residents were allowed back late Saturday, officials said.

The storm - the largest since 2010 - kept emergency planners and rescue crews busy, but it didn't produce enough rain to pull California out of a crippling drought that has grown to crisis proportions for the state's vast farming industry.

The precipitation will bring the Los Angeles region to about half its normal rainfall for the season, Bill Patzert, a climatologist for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La CaƱada Flintridge, told the Los Angeles Times
"This is no drought-buster, but it's a nice, fat down payment" in the water bank, he said.”

And thank you for those reassuring words, Mr. Patzert.

Viva climate change fraud!


Abortion Threatens to Make African-Americans Extinct: Where Are Obama and Holder?

By John W. Lillpop

Historians will surely muse over the fact that, under the Marxist dictatorship of America’s first black president, the lives of millions of black Americans have not been effectively improved, and, in fact, may have actually worsened as the Obama administration pursues policies which almost defy comprehension.

For example, while unemployment and poverty continue to ravage African-Americans even as at least some meager economic recovery takes hold elsewhere in the nation, Barack Obama and Attorney General focus on reducing sentences for those convicted of crack cocaine crimes, and on restoring voting rights for convicted felons, both  disproportionately germane to black Americans.

Of course unjust application of the law is criminal; however, efforts to build and sustain family, employment, education, inclusion in community, and housing for blacks should be the primary and first  priority.

While Eric Holder wages all-out war on voter ID laws meant to assure the democratic essence of the vote, scant attention is paid to the fact that African-American families are under assault as never before.

Indeed, as reported at reference 1, an appalling 72 percent of black births take place outside the nurturing nature of marriage!

Even more distressing is the progressive endorsement of abortion which is, in effect, genocide against black Americans.

As the description of Planned Parenthood at Reference 2 points out, abortion is particularly pernicious when it comes to offing black babies:

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in America. 78% of their clinics are in minority communities. Blacks make up 12% of the population, but 35% of the abortions in America. Are African Americans being targeted? Isn't that genocide? Blacks are the only minority in America that is on the decline in population. If the current trend continues, by 2038 the black vote will be insignificant. 

Given these depressing facts, why in the hell are Barack Obama and Eric Holder so obsessed  about Voter ID laws?

Perhaps it has not occurred to these snooty elitists that “dead black babies are PERMANENTLY disenfranchised and will NEVER Vote!” 

Rev. Dr. Clenard H Childress Jr., Founder of Black Genocide.org, has it exactly right with this quote:
“The most dangerous place for African-Americans is in the womb.”  Pastor Clenard Childress, Jr.

As the Youtube video below demonstrates clearly enough, Planned Parenthood appears to willfully sanction the use of racial discrimination as the basis for aborting unborn human life:


Bottom line: When a tax-payer subsidized organization supports those who believe that ‘we are better off with fewer black kids out there,” the problem is not crack punishments, voting rights for felons, or Voter ID laws:

The problem is with politicians and voters who stand by idly as an entire race of Americans is targeted for death!

Putin Laughs at Obama “Red Line”: Surprised?

By John W. Lillpop

As conservatives have consistently warned since Barack Obama was allowed to assume the title of US Commander-in-Chief on that blustery January 20 afternoon in 2009, a foreign policy based on appeasement and surrender will never serve to quiet the savage beast that dwells within the hearts of evil men who, whether we like it or not, are, and will always be, enemies of freedom and democracy.

Diplomacy works only when both parties are motivated to resolve differences without conflict.  When one of the parties is reticent about being dominant and is otherwise ashamed of striving to win, the prospects for peace are all but gone.

Speak softly and carry a big stick,’can work, but only if everyone believes that using the ‘big stick’ is a genuine possibility.

Throughout the five plus tortured years of Obama’s presidency, the world has come to disrespect American resolve and power. Our current president would rather be golfing or fighting to transform America into a state of unsustainable welfare and entitlement, rather than defending the honor of our heritage and the millions of American lives sacrificed to preserve liberty and freedom from tyranny throughout the world.

Obama’s obtuse refusal to LEAD has aggravated, perhaps even precipitated, dangerous situations in Iran, North Korea, Libya, Egypt, Syria, and Iraq and Afghanistan.

Given his druthers, Barack would prefer to surrender to foreign adversaries and thereby deny legitimate American interests, so as to resume work on his agenda to increase food stamp and welfare handouts and distribution of cell phones to undecided voters.

While Obama works to trade food stamps for votes for Democrats, a new foreign danger has emerged in the Ukraine.

As reported at the reference, Obama tried to sound manly in issuing the following threat:


U.S. President Barack Obama didn't speak very long at the White House on Friday, but his message was clear: Russia should not use military force to change the fate of Ukraine.

"The United States will stand with the international community in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in Ukraine," Obama said.

Hmmm. Interesting parsing of words. Note that The One talked of ‘standing with the international community,’ rather than asserting America’s commitment to combating evil doers outright! .

It’s classic Obama-speak which translates into sweet double talk with no mention of a big stick.

Predictably, Vladimir Putin did not appear frightened or concerned by Obama’s puny threat.

As reported at the reference:


As Russian-backed armed forces effectively seized control of Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula on Saturday, President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia requested that the Russian Senate authorize him to use military force in Ukraine.

Mr. Putin’s request, largely a formality, signaled publicly for the first time the Kremlin’s readiness to intervene militarily in Ukraine, and it served as a blunt response to President Obama, who just hours earlier pointedly warned Russia to respect Ukraine’s sovereignty.

Even as Mr. Putin submitted his request to the Senate, formally called the Federation Council, it was clear that forces allied with Moscow were largely in control of the disputed peninsula.

Just a few hours earlier on Saturday morning, the newly installed, pro-Russia prime minister of Crimea declared that he had sole control over the military and the police in the disputed peninsula and he appealed to Mr. Putin for help in safeguarding the region.
The prime minister, Sergei Aksyonov, also said a public referendum on independence would be held on March 30.

On a day of frayed nerves and set-piece political appeals that recalled ethnic conflicts of past decades in the former Soviet bloc — from the Balkans to the Caucasus — pro-Russian forces were said to have taken control of a government building in Kharkiv, and a crowd in the center of Donetsk pulled down the blue-and-yellow Ukrainian flag and raised a Russian one.

Meanwhile, Barack Obama engineers the decimation of the US military for consistency  with a non-existent foreign policy.

When will the American people demand that foreign policy include a “big stick” to dissuade foreign tyrants, and that the Wussies politics of the left be permanently abandoned?
