Planners: ten tricks they play

An earlier version of the Regional Plan for the San Francisco Bay region.

Here’s a test. Think of a regional sustainable development plan that does not include open spaces, compact living and reduced vehicle miles traveled. From Plan Bay Area in San Francisco, to New York’s Capital Region Sustainability Plan the programs are the same.

Polar Vortex, Part 2: Facts

Editor’s note: in Part 1, Dwight Kehoe introduced the overblown Polar Vortex narrative. Below he lists several relevant facts that give the lie to that narrative. He might never convince certain liberals. But maybe he can set at rest any minds that might think they have any cause to worry.

All right. It’s time to admit it.  I’m a cynic.  You will have to excuse me for not accepting, without proof, anything people or groups preach without seeing some facts.   Especially if a particular group has an agenda aimed at confiscation and distribution of property they don’t own or have any right to. And that includes the so-called “polar vortex.”

Tick, Tick, Tick… Incrementalism at work

Are there any devils left in hell? Or did Obama hire them all away?

Incrementalism has always been the secret behind the success of the progressive’s agenda. Their strategy of coercion and manipulation has often been implemented over extended periods of time whereby the rights and freedoms of the people are slowly changed or taken away so that few notice and wake one morning in full acceptance of their new reality.

Are you worthy of this republic?

As I was listening to two conservative news anchors bantering back and forth in a comical manner, asking one another as to what scandal they thought was most controversial in 2013 (the IRS targeting of conservative groups, Obamacare lies and its unconstitutionality, the Benghazi cover-up, etc.), I thought within myself: This is some serious irresponsibility going on through those who are responsible for helping preserve our republic.

Vexatious liberal ‘lexicons’

TEA Party to GOP establishment: enough already.

Over the years, as part of the planned ruination of our culture and society the liberal left has endeavored to label and define activity, by use of words they choose and phrases they create.  All the while, our side, acquiesces and accepts and even uses those terms and then wonders why they always lose the propaganda battle.

Your God of Leviticus (and of the whole Bible) is clearly a sinful homophobic bigot. He should repent of his sinful homophobia…

-The Late Radical homosexual activist Frank Kameny

Over the past couple of weeks, we have seen “Duck Dynasty’s” Phil Robertson under incessant attack by the radical homosexuals in America for simply quoting the Bible. The reason for their incessant attacks: the radical homosexuals have lost control over their talking points, as well as the dialogue that is used to push their ungodly and unlawful lifestyle choices through the state-run media.

ASA – Academics Surrender to Allah

Members of the Israel Defense Forces on the Golan Heights. These are the real men of ideals in the Middle Ease.

Five thousand members of the ASA, American Studies Association, would be better identified as Academics Surrender to Allah.  They have declared jihad against the State of Israel.  Why?  ASA president Curtis Marez admitted that there are worse countries than Israel but, he added, “One has to start somewhere!” Can you picture Marez as part of a firefighting team sent to extinguish a blaze in Southern California, and he’ll start “somewhere” in North Dakota?  So they’re boycotting Israel’s universities, which are also attended by Palestinian students, rather than boycotting Palestinian universities that were instituted by Israel but are prohibited to Jewish students – perhaps a study in reverse psychology.

What will it take?

The Obama rainbow flag. Democrats now run from this flag and the man.

Let me begin with a categorical statement that, given current events and recent political history, can be easily defended: Barack Hussein Obama is a willful, indoctrinated child of the Left with strong Islamic sympathies who is not fit to govern. Indeed, he would not be fit to govern Lower Slobovia, let alone the United States of America. Obama is a historic disaster of the first magnitude and, if not restrained, he will see to the irrevocable decline of the country which foolishly elected him, leaving the world on the brink of a conflict — or in the midst of one — whose repercussions cannot be underestimated.

Four questions: Nuremberg redux

Who's to blame when tyranny thrives, or even when it stand trial?

In response to my recent essay, “Nuremberg Revisited,” I received four questions from a reader, Mr. K, – four simple questions that reminded me of the centuries-old Four Questions that we read at the Passover Seder each year. The Passover Questions concern the Why and How Passover is celebrated, and were designed to keep our history alive, get the children involved in learning the lessons of the Jewish Exodus from slavery in Egypt into a life of freedom in our own land, Israel, as well as to enlighten the uninformed guest.
