  1. What do you think about UNs newly elected Secretary General ?
    It is Antonio Guterres, former PM in Portugal, socialist. I read that UN ambassador John Bolton said about him : Guterres is a great believer in the EU, he has said that he is worried about “populism” in the West, defining populism as “people who want to protect their borders “.
    Well, it all sounds like another globalist. We have far too many of those. They are slowly destroying the West. UN is a rather toothless organisation, riddled with useless bureaucrats, in severe need of reforms. However, maybe this dysfunctional world needs a playground like this ? To get on speaking terms ?

  2. The east coast is in a state of emergency and he’s off fundraising!!! Typical BO start of a weekend!! I’d bet there will be a round of golf during his visit!!!

  3. Obama’s beloved Chicago, where a female cop prefers a savage beating by street thugs to the media scrutiny of drawing her service weapon.

    I am perplexed that any discussion of the Ferguson Effect, especially the commentary by the Chicago police chief and mayor over this cop’s beating, ignores the well-documented fact that what they see happening is absolutely the textbook effect that groups like Weather Underground and the Black Panthers set out to accomplish in the 60’s and 70’s.

    In fact, in Prairie Fire, its manifesto, Weather Underground specifically wrote:

    “Active combat against empire is the only foundation for social revolution in the oppressor nation.”

    What is ‘Empire?” Empire is law and order. Empire is the social contract. When you have law and order questioning its every move and impotent to act against those who have declared war against it, you have the revolution the movement sought. You have an institutional inability to enforce the laws. You have chaos, like that described in Cloward-Piven.

    Remember that Weather Underground once openly declared war against the police. And that Bill Ayers was “just a guy from the neighborhood.”

    • If you get Netflix I would recommend Boss, starring Kelsey Gramer (sp)as Mayor of Chicago. Only two seasons, but brilliantly acted and produced. First rate.

      Most agree that the level of corruption is only a tad above reality. There is little dispute about Chicago corruption.

      But for me the most instructive thing about it was in connection with Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Machine. Gramer’s character gets sick while in office and the effects of that frightening. Also, it is excellent at showing the web of the climb to power.

      To me it was a very good portrayal of a future HRC Administration. Too much gratuitous sex, but brief and perhaps necessary.

      Given our times and the fact that it is just plain well done, cannot recommend it enough.

  4. The UN should move its HQ to France. At the very least if should get out of the US and we should withdraw from it. Pipe dreams both, but an absolutely worthless organization on every single level.

    EU — another inept organization. A very comfy place for globalist and corruption. The Brits were smart to vote to get out. But I suspect the chances of that happening are as likely as the corrupt Democrat machine relinquishing power in the US.

    • The UN is Koestler’s “Darkness at Noon”, Huxley’s “Brave New World”, Orwell’s “1984”, Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451”, and Doctorow’s “Little Brother” all rolled into one organization. That was always the plan and we were warned many times. And here we are.

      • You are so right, of course.

        Many of us have probably considered this. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that we have never been “invaded” — until now,of course. 9/11 and Obama’s blanket invitation into our country of ne’er do wells and terrorists. But never invaded by an outside hostile force tramping on our soil, raping, pillaging, etc.

        And secondly, because of the country we built and the safeguards we took we were always aware of the possibility of revolution from within, but never took it seriously. I am not sure where that comes from although we all have some thoughts.

        We have come to the realization now, and perhaps it is too late. The enemy we fight has been at it for 20 years and infiltrated every fabric of our society and government.

        But clearly the Left took those instruction manuals, as they did Alinksy and the Marxists, to heart. Shame on us.
