Carly Fiorina – she really WAS that bad…

In short….she was and continues to be out of the league of competent CEO’s and political leaders.

HER silver tongue honed by decades in corporate marketing, Carly Fiorina has used two debates, and a steely determination on the campaign trail, to climb near the top of the polls for the Republican nomination.

But Americans should pause on her biggest professional credential for our highest office: a short, disastrous stint atop one of America’s iconic technology companies, Hewlett-Packard.

The clearest measure of her performance — and the report card preferred by Wall Street — is H.P.’s stock price, which dropped by 52 percent during her tenure of almost six years.

Yes, Mrs. Fiorina served during the worst fall in technology shares in history. But she managed to underperform her key competitors; IBM’s shares declined by 27.5 percent and Dell’s fell by 3 percent.

The most ruinous aspect of Mrs. Fiorina’s tenure was her decision to acquire another “old tech” hardware company, Compaq Computer Corporation, instead of moving more heavily into services and software, as IBM did.

The proposed merger — Mrs. Fiorina pronounced that the two companies “fit together like a zipper” — bitterly divided directors and shareholders and was approved with just a 51.4 percent majority, a split I cannot recall seeing elsewhere during my 33-year Wall Street career.

To be fair, Mrs. Fiorina was saddled with a dysfunctional board. But that was well known, so taking the job with that added complexity was her eyes-wide-open choice.

Investors were so down on her that H.P.’s shares jumped by almost 7 percent on the day of her firing. And in ensuing years, she appeared on several “worst C.E.O.” lists, including those of CBS News and USA Today.

In 2009, Portfolio magazine ranked her the 19th worst C.E.O. of all time and described her as a “consummate self-promoter” who was “busy pontificating on the lecture circuit and posing for magazine covers while her company floundered.” (That sounds like good preparation for running for president.)

Mrs. Fiorina tries to obscure these harsh realities with a blizzard of her own “facts.” On the campaign trail, for example, she speaks of having doubled her company’s revenues. However, most of that increase came from adding in Compaq’s sales, which is a misleading way to calculate revenue growth.

While some of the intricacies of Mrs. Fiorina’s performance may elude voters amid the dust storm that she has kicked up, her compensation won’t. She banked $21 million in severance payments as part of the more than $100 million in compensation she received during what one critic called her “destructive reign of terror” (which included pushing for H.P. to acquire five corporate jets.)

In the course of her losing Senate run in 2010, she was also attacked for the 30,000 layoffs that occurred at H.P. during her tenure. That’s not entirely fair — the entire technology industry was going through a downsizing and H.P.’s total employment ultimately climbed back up — but it was deadly effective politics that could doubtless be repeated in 2016.

Less attention has been paid to her time at Lucent Technologies, where she rose through the marketing ranks, learning the sales techniques that she is now putting to good use on the stump.
Soon after she left, Lucent veered off a cliff, and while she was never the chief executive, part of the company’s collapse stemmed from overly aggressive sales and loans to financially shaky customers made under her supervision.

Strikingly few former colleagues have come to Mrs. Fiorina’s defense. And her most prominent advocate, the venture capitalist Tom Perkins, has his own challenges; last year, he compared the criticisms of wealthy Americans to the attacks on Jews during Kristallnacht.

In a recent essay, Mrs. Fiorina noted that many other successful business leaders — Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, Walt Disney and Michael Bloomberg — were all fired at one point in their careers.

The difference, however, is that all four went on to achieve remarkable business success; Mrs. Fiorina has not held a full-time private sector job since she left H.P. in 2005 — perhaps because no one sought her services.

I certainly recognize that corporate accomplishments are not a prerequisite for a government perch. Indeed, many chief executives fail when they move from the command-and-control business environment to Washington, where consensus-building is a necessity.

However, the lack of public service or sustained business success makes Mrs. Fiorina unqualified for the nation’s highest office. By comparison, Mitt Romney had built an extraordinarily successful investment firm and served for four years as governor of Massachusetts.

Crooning on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” as Mrs. Fiorina did recently, may add some glitter to her persona, but the important gaps in achievement remain.

The following entry is a re-blog of a European E-coli outbreak likely caused by Genetic Engineering run amok…(another of our most popular blog entries)

In the Chipotle case, it might be the greens…or it might be the use of ground meat from cows fed genetically engineered corn which contains a variety of e-coli virus materials which are used to create the GMO variant.

This is an elephant in the living room that GMO practitioners and academics will deny to the demise of the last foundation grant  given to their universities.


It might surprise you to learn that some people now believe the new E. coli superbug sweeping through Europe, Sickening Thousands of People and Killing Dozens, is a Bio-Engineered Germ Warfare Pathogen!!

There has been something strange about the recent deadly outbreak of antibiotic-resistant E. coli, which has sickened thousands throughout Europe and hasalready killed dozens:

Too many of these super-pathogens are coming out at once. Perhaps excessive antibiotic usage has caused pathogens to mutate. But this is ridiculous and it is quite possible that someone is tampering with the bugs and turning them into biological weapons as they are now affecting a wide variety of food crops…Antibiotic drugs are not used on food crops, so that rules out mutation.

GMO “superbug”…
It appears that forensic evidence is emerging that indicates that the European e.coli superbug was bioengineered to produce human fatalities.

Even as the veggie blame game is now under way across the EU, where a super resistant strain of E. coli is sickening patients and filling hospitals in Germany, virtually no one is talking about how E. coli could have magically become resistant to eight different classes of antibiotic drugs and then suddenly appeared in the food supply.

This particular E. coli variation is a member of the O104 strain, and O104 strains are almost never (normally) resistant to antibiotics. In order for them to acquire this resistance, they must be repeatedly exposed to antibiotics in order to provide the ‘mutation pressure’ that nudges them toward complete drug immunity.

So how does this “mutation pressure” happen with a strain of E. coli found in vegetables that have never been exposed to antibiotic drugs, much less to multiple types of antibiotic drugs?

The answer is quite simple —you have to expose this strain of E. coli to all eight classes of antibiotics drugs. Usually this isn’t done at the same time, of course:

You first expose it to penicillin and find the surviving colonies which are resistant to penicillin. You then take those surviving colonies and expose them to tetracycline. The surviving colonies are now resistant to both penicillin and tetracycline. You then expose them to a sulfa drug and collect the surviving colonies from that, and so on.

It is a process of genetic selection done in a laboratory with a desired outcome. This is essentially how some bioweapons are engineered by the U.S. Army in its laboratory facility in Ft. Detrick, Maryland…

Although the actual process is more complicated than this, the upshot is that creating a strain of E. coli that’s resistant to eight classes of antibiotics requires repeated, sustained exposure to those antibiotics.

It is virtually impossible to imagine how this could happen all by itself in the natural world. For example, if this bacteria originated in the food crops (as we’ve been told), then where did it acquire all this antibiotic resistance given the fact that antibiotics are not used in vegetables?

When considering the genetic evidence that now confronts the EU, it is difficult to imagine how this could happen ‘in the wild.’ While resistance to a single antibiotic is common, the creation of a strain of E. coli that’s resistant to eight different classes of antibiotics — in combination — simply defies the laws of genetic permutation and combination in the wild.

Simply put, this superbug E.coli strain could not have been created in the wild. And that leaves only one explanation for where it really came from: the lab.”

The bottom line is that this deadly new strain of E. coli must have been engineered in a laboratory.

Whose laboratory? I have no idea. But as author Duncan Long discusses in the 1999 book, The Bioterrorism Manual: Secrets for Survival…

“ of the easiest and most effective vectors for terrorists (whether corporate, or religious fanatic) to conduct a germ warfare attack on a population would be through the food supply.”

Infecting the food supply is cheap, easy, can causes high casualties, and triggers the desired response which is inducing a state of helplessness and panic in the targeted population.

Indeed, terrorist attempts to infect the food supply have already taken place right here in the United States. So this is nothing new. As Duncan Long writes in The Bioterrorism Manual: Secrets for Survival:

“One attack took place in September 1984, in Oregon…this one was mounted by a religious cult, the Rajneeshi, who were trying to take over the local political system of the town where they had set up their headquarters.

To swing the election that they hoped would vote into office members of the sect, the group cultivated salmonella bacteria in an underground lab.

They then filled small vials of water laced with the bacteria and spread out over town, surreptitiously pouring the deadly liquid over lettuce in salad bars, produce in grocery stores, and so forth.

The goal of this reckless act was to make enough townspeople ill that they wouldn’t go to the voting booths, thereby allowing the Rajneeshi to swing the election in their favor.

The attack eventually made 751 people sick, including babies; in all, nearly a tenth of the town was laid low with the intense illness.

One frightening aspect of this story is that the attack went undetected. No one ever connected the cult to the strange illness that swept through the tiny town. It was only later, when a former member came forward and told the authorities, that the attack was discovered.

Such attacks can be mounted with only rudimentary knowledge of laboratory methods, and such assaults may not only go undetected but may even remain a mystery. This makes biological weapons revolting to good people. And attractive to terrorists.”



The German’s are back at the organic farm now, unfortunately without any direct evidence since all of the contaminated vegetables have been either shredded(see pix below), eaten or thrown away…How convenient!

Anyway, organic folks are getting the brickbats again, and the EU has been oh so quick to offer up hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation to those who were affected…smells like the EU is trying to have this potential GMO problem go away as quickly as possible…

The German “experts” clearly state that it is not yet established WHY the organic sprouts were bad – never mind, they have laid the blame on some small time farmer and let the bigger fish swim away without harm…And there are those who say that German engineering and science is top drawer – well, they may build a nice car, like my Mercedes, but they seem to have been drinking too much beer out in the sun when this problem was laid on their doorstep.


EDITOR’S NOTE: we occasionally receive nasty e-mails from readers who are really upset that information such as this is being brought to the light of day…they seem to ignore what science has discovered about the hybrid industry and what types of strange and new biological and viral strains are being loosed on humanity when the recombination process between native plants and virulent horizontal vectors occur. We will let them reside in their ignorance – they perhaps are shills for the GMO industry..



Surprise, surprise — GERMAN Health Ministry sources now say that the massive European e-coli outbreak was NOT the result of contaminated sprouts from a German organic farm. In fact, they now have no idea what has caused the problem – back to square one – after blaming Spanish Cucumbers and who knows what else.

I think we can stand by our original premise that GMO seeds, contaminated by the horizontal transfer of pathogenic e-coli bacteria for the genetic engineering process – is still the culprit. Of course, all the bad veggies will be taken to some remote warehouse and chopped up so there is no way to determine if the e-coli was topical or inherent in the plant genetics.

Really good science at work…

Stay tuned – the fat lady hasn’t sung yet!!

BTW – some of our readers seem to think that GMO is banned in Europe – perhaps they have been hiding under a rock or something…more and more acceptance(and pressure from the US based corporations) throughout the EU…



This blog entry has attracted close to 9000 viewers in the last 48 hours – many are asking for more information on just how this genetic engineering process works; if it indeed has met the multiple claims and promises of the GMO corporations and what known dangers may be inherent in this process where multinational corporations are now playing “God in the Garden”.

We will post information on this blog(and blog entry) to link you to more complete information on the above topics. This is indeed a controversial subject and the object of tens if not hundreds of billions of dollars in profits for companies such as Monsanto, Cargill, Dupont, etc who make no bones about trying to control the world’s food supply.

Bookmark this blog entry to keep in touch with these subsequent topics.


European authorities now claim that the deadly e-coli outbreak has been traced to an “organic” vegetable/sprout farm in Germany. The farm apparently uses no manure, which rules out animal-based e-coli while the “scientists on the ground” say the pathogen likely originated in water or in the seeds purchased and used to grow sprouts.

Organic farmers typically use no artificial or native chemical growth stimulants but may purchase GMO seeds, in a fashion similar to conventional vegetable growers. Organic growers are on the “hit list” of major food producers, including companies who produce GMO seeds for general distribution.

Conclusion? Just because the cause appears to originate on an organic vegetable farm does not mean that the organic process was the culprit – it could just as easily mean that the farmer was dumb enough to purchase GMO seeds produced by e-coli injection methods and not know it.

It will be interesting to see how quickly the culprit vegetation is gathered up and taken to some laboratory and ground up for analysis – once again defeating any attempt to determine if the e-coli was deposited on the surface of the plant(or seed) or inherent in the genetic makeup of the seed itself….

Vegetable Grinder

Just like we predicted, Europe shredding the evidence of e-coli contaminated vegetables – no way to identify GMO after it is shredded!!

We have seen this type of diversionary activity before.

And, we’ve seen this story before – only a short two years ago in the Salinas Valley of Central California – the vegetable basket of the United States, hundreds of individuals seriously ill(and some deaths) from consuming vegetables tainted in some fashion by variations of the highly virulent e-coli bacterium.

In the end, in order to protect the sacred cow of the GMO industry, the Salinas Valley episode was conveniently blamed on cattle and wild pig droppings which were claimed to have occurred several miles from the apparent contamination area.

This is sound science?

The contaminated samples of spinach and other vegetables were collected, sequestered in a guarded warehouse nearby and then conveniently sliced and diced so that it was virtually impossible to determine if the e-coli was present on the vegetable’s surface or inherent in the genetic makeup of the vegetation.

Obviously more good science at work…

The more logical explanation, now conveniently hid from view due to the “destroyed” sample vegetables is the use of highly virulent bacteria in the horizontal gene transfer in genetically engineered vegetables. Normal “vertical” genetic transfer is from within the native plant itself, a “mother-daughter” transfer of identical, reproductive genetic information from the mother plant to the daughter seed.

In genetic engineering, extremely toxic microbes, many in the e-coli family of pathogenic bacteria, are transferred “horizontally” or basically injected into the native plant so as to genetically alter a variety of plant features, including color, taste, productivity, and immunity to various insects and plant diseases.

Even genetic engineers admit that this horizontal gene transferring process can create new and radical species of bacteria, which then reside in each and every molecule of the new plant when it germinates, is harvested and placed on your family’s dinner plate. And this is what you might be eating when you buy vegetables in your local US grocery store – where it is currently illegal to mark or designate various table vegetables as GMO.

Glow fish created by genetic engineers with too much time on their hands…
In Europe, as in the United States and many foreign countries which have experienced similar outbreaks of “NEW” variants of e-coli, the culprit may very well be this genetic engineering process running amok – creating a multitude of vaccine and anti-biotic resistant bacteria strains which are entirely new to scientists and biologists and are highly destructive to animals and humans.

Watch carefully to see how organizations such as the World Health Organization and the Food and Drug Administration quickly discount this possibility – a clear indication as to how closely these organizations are tied to the GMO industries of Dupont, Monsanto and a variety of European concerns who want to control our food chain.

ISRAEL, the US and coming world Prophecy

Here is the most likely scenario that I can foresee at the moment. Hamas, the fundamentalist Arab terrorist organization funded by Iran, will take complete control over the Palestinian autonomous areas.

Hamas will then unleash a renewed reign of terror on Israel, continuing their lobbing of rockets from Gaza and Jericho to back up their demand for control of (eastern)Jerusalem.

The Palestinian leadership will orchestrate world pressure on Israel through the United Nations and the Vatican. On September 23rd of last year they proclaimed a Palestinian state and then demanded that Jerusalem be “liberated” or internationalized.

Since even the most liberal Israelis take the position that Jerusalem is non-negotiable, the pressure will mount toward an inevitable conflict. If Hamas does not unleash the rockets first, then Abbas will ultimately return to the method he knows best — terror.

This will prompt an Israeli counter attack, which, in turn, will motivate the Arab states to come to the defense of the Palestinians. This could very well lead to Syria launching an all out missile attack on Tel Aviv in order to reclaim the Golan Heights and turn attention away from their civilian upheavals.

If that ominous event should occur, the Israelis will be forced to use their ultimate weapon to survive. They will strike Damascus with nuclear weapons. This will fulfill the prophecies that state that Damascus will cease to exist in the end times (Isaiah 17:1-3 and Jeremiah 49:23-27).

In panic, the Arab states will then turn to their natural ally for help — the Russians. And the likelihood is that the Russian government will be only too happy to send an army into the Middle East to destroy Israel (and grab the Arab oil fields in the process).

That is when the Lord will step in personally to destroy 5/6th of the Russian and Islamic hordes on the mountains of Israel in a supernatural way so that even the Israelis will realize that their deliverance came from the Lord and not from their own military might (Ezekiel 38 and 39).

As the whole world panics on the brink of World War III, a dynamic, charismatic political leader from Europe will step into the vacuum and propose an ingenious solution that will result in peace between Israel and its Arab neighbors — a peace that will enable the Jews to rebuild their Temple.

We live in exciting times when we can watch prophecy being fulfilled before our eyes. The events are ominous and overwhelming, but we can stand firm with great hope because we know that God is on His throne and that He is in control.

The events we are currently witnessing throughout the Middle East point to the imminent return of Jesus Christ, and when He returns, the world will be flooded with the Millennial peace and righteousness as promised to Abraham and his descendents, and Israel will enjoy the blessings of territorial integrity and peace forevermore (Zechariah 8:1-8).

In all of this, it is important to remember that while we as the Church were formulated at Pentacost, the Lord’s timetable throughout recorded history has and will continue to be Israel. The USA is only mentioned in biblical history as one of the “isles of the world” which has no significance other than to be associated with other countries which have lined up against Israel.

The USA(and Obama administration) position of support for Israel has deteriorated rapidly in the last five years – and it is quite clear that Obama favors the Islamic and Muslim cause over that of Israel. These acts alone tell us that the end of world history as we know it is near its prophetic conclusion.

When the rapture of the church occurs, what belief remains in the USA will be indistinguishable from any other nation in the world – and the USA’s task of being the world’s leader in evangelical activities prior to the Tribulation and Millennium will be completed.

Be encouraged and not dismayed – I read the back of the Book and WE WON!

The Obama Administration’s Plot to Tax & Abolish Your Cash


We’ve had two epic market collapses in the last 15 years. In response, the Fed desperately tried to prop up the markets by severely cutting interest rates. Cutting rates to zero badly devalued the U.S. currency, sent us spiraling into record debt, and killed savers by lowering the savings rate to zero. But with the global economy still on terribly shaky ground and interest rates already at zero, do the Obama Administration & banks have any ammo left? Shockingly, yes.

Central banks already have plans to impose negative interest rates – in other words, you get taxed on your savings! And in order to prevent you and me from storing our money in cash and avoiding the savings tax, the gov’t & banks advance toward the real end game: abolish cash altogether and force us all into the digital world controlled by the the Obama Administration & banks. Luckily, there’s still one way to escape the tyranny.

Step 1: Tax Your Savings

When economic conditions worsen, world banks react by reducing interest rates in order to stimulate the economy. But there comes a point when those central banks run out of room to cut, because interest rates are already at zero. So the answer for world banks is to impose negative interest rates. This means that instead of getting interest on your savings, you actually PAY BANKS to keep your savings on deposit. In other words, you pay tax on your savings. So you actually LOSE MONEY every day you keep your money in the bank.

So, what would any reasonable person do when the bank steals their savings every single day? Pull their money out of the bank, of course! Physical paper money provides the check against negative interest rates, because if the bank takes your savings, you can simply withdraw your funds and hoard cash. Furthermore, when you inevitably lose faith in the banking system, physical paper money allows you to pull your savings out of the bank before the bank collapses.

Step 2: Abolish Cash

But if you think pulling money out of the bank is going to be so easy, think again. Willem Buiter, the Global Chief Economist for Citi, has now come up with an answer to prevent you from pulling your money out of the bank: abolish cash entirely! You read that right. The Global Chief Economist from one of the largest banking institutions in the world is now telling the Obama minions & banks to abolish the use and private storage of YOUR cash. And guess what? The gov’t & banks are following orders.

The Banks Declare War on Your Cash

Government & banks around the world are taking swift action to abolish the use and storage of cash:

JPMorgan Chase recently informed customers that the bank will no longer allow cash to be stored in safety deposit boxes.
Chase instituted a new policy which “restricts borrowers from using cash to make payments on credit cards, mortgages, equity lines, and auto loans.”
The Justice Department has ordered bank employees to consider calling the police on customers who withdraw $5,000 dollars or more.
HSBC is now interrogating its account holders in the UK on how they earn and spend their money as well as restricting cash withdrawals for customers.
Banks in the U.S. are making it harder for customers to withdraw and deposit cash, with Chase imposing new capital controls that mandate identification for cash deposits and ban cash being deposited into another person’s account.
Chase banned international wire transfers while restricting cash activity for business customers (both deposits and withdrawals).
The French government announced it will restrict French citizens from making cash payments over €1,000 euros.

The Gov’t Seizes Your Cash

As the U.S. spirals toward insolvency due to massive over-spending and Fed money-printing, the U.S. government is pulling out all the stops to gain access to your money – no matter where it is across the globe.

First, the government started seizing citizen bank accounts with no due process.

Then, the IRS threatened foreign nations and financial institutions across the globe to turn over your private data and financial accounts, with the threat of financial warfare if they don’t comply.

And now, the Department of Justice and local police have started seizing cash from innocent citizens. That’s right, the executive branch of government has been aggressively taking citizens cash without due process of law.

So in short, your ability to take your savings out of banks and storing it in cash is coming to an end. And even if you do take possession of your savings in cash, how secure do you feel when the government comes knocking on your door asking about your stockpile of cash?

If our government is going to these lengths to track down your money and even confiscate citizen savings without due process, isn’t it much easier to track and control digital accounts than cash? Yes. So how does the government remedy this challenge? Join the banks in a war against cash.

The IMF Proposes Global Wealth Confiscation


As first reported by Forbes, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) dropped a bomb in its October Fiscal Monitor Report. The report paints a dire picture for high-debt nations that fail to aggressively “mobilize domestic revenue,” which is code for “aggressively tax its citizens.” It goes on to build a case for drastic measures and recommends a series of escalating income and consumption tax increases – culminating in the direct confiscation of assets.

Why is the IMF proposing this? Because global governments and central banks pumped trillions of dollars of YOUR money into the banks and stock market over the last several years, catapulting public debts to tens of TRILLIONS of dollars. But now, governments and central banks can no longer sustain these debt levels, and global wealth confiscation is their only way to maintain the Ponzi scheme. So it’s more apparent than ever, if you want to keep your savings & retirement out of the hands of desperate governments, there’s only one thing you can do.

The Wolves Are Starving for Your Money

First, here is the excerpt where the IMF clearly advocates a tax on your private savings to pay down government debt:

The sharp deterioration of the public finances in many countries has revived interest in a “capital levy”—a one-off tax on private wealth—as an exceptional measure to restore debt sustainability… The tax rates needed to bring down public debt to pre-crisis levels are sizable. Reducing debt ratios to end-2007 levels would require a tax rate of about 10 percent on households with positive net wealth.

You read that right: the IMF wants to take 10% of your private savings in addition to the taxes you’re already paying. But is that only the beginning of the proposed wealth confiscation? The report’s most chilling aspect is the clinical manner in which it discusses how all governments can work together to track and tax your savings:

Financial wealth is mobile, and so, ultimately, are people. … There may be a case for taxing different forms of wealth differently according to their mobility… Substantial progress likely requires enhanced international cooperation to make it harder for the very well-off to evade taxation by placing funds elsewhere.

As Forbes points out, there are three key points to take away from this report:

IMF economists know there are not enough rich people to fund today’s governments even if 100 percent of the assets of the 1 percent were expropriated. That means that all households with positive net wealth—everyone with retirement savings or home equity—would have their assets plundered under the IMF’s formulation.

Such a repudiation of private property will not pay off Western governments’ debts or fund budgets going forward. It will merely “restore debt sustainability,” allowing free-spending sovereigns to keep tapping the bond markets until the next crisis comes along—for which stronger measures will be required, of course.

If politicians should fail to engage in this kind of wholesale robbery, the only alternative scenario the IMF posits is government bankruptcy and hyperinflation. The IMF makes no proposes to reign in the Ponzi-scheme entitlement programs that are bankrupting us.
Forbes argues that this is where the bankruptcy of the modern entitlement state is taking us—capital controls and exit restrictions “so the proverbial four wolves and a lamb can vote on what’s for dinner.”

What if everyone acted like Kim Davis?

Kim Davis has become a symbol of resistance to same-sex marriage for two reasons.

First, she stands alone. Well, not quite alone. There are other public officials who have vowed not to give their approval to same-sex marriages, but for various reasons they have not (yet) faced legal sanctions.

Second, in the Davis case, a federal judge has unleashed the full force of judicial power in order to crush resistance to same-sex marriage. Rather than seeking a way to accommodate homosexual couples without forcing her to violate her conscience, the judge chose to make an example of her. In other, previous cases, involving proponents of same-sex marriage who refused to carry out their legal duties, the courts have taken no such draconian action. Obviously Judge Bunning saw this case as a potentially important precedent, because if Kim Davis can resist with impunity, others will be tempted to do the same.

Well, let’s explore that possibility for a few minutes. What would happen if, across the country, hundreds or even thousands of clerks joined Kim Davis and refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples? Let’s imagine that in large swaths of America, homosexual couples were not allowed legal access to marriage, despite the Supreme Court decision claiming that this is their right. We’d have a constitutional crisis on our hands, wouldn’t we?

Yes, indeed we would. And I say: Bring it on!

The crisis, in that case, would arise not from the actions (or inactions) of Kim Davis and her fellow clerks, but from the absurd and illegitimate decision of the Supreme Court. Our form of government is based on a system of checks and balances. But through the connivance of Barack Obama and the executive branch, and the negligence of the legislative branch, the judiciary is now unchecked. There is no effective limit to what five members of the Supreme Court can do, through the arbitrary extension of their own power.

If hundreds or thousands of clerks joined Kim Davis, other public officials would be forced to ask some serious questions about what they were required to do. Police officers and court bailiffs and federal marshals and prison guards might ask themselves whether it was sensible to put so many harmless people behind bars. Judges might recognize the injustice of Judge Bunning’s approach, and look for other solutions. Members of Congress might even awaken from their slumber, and impose some limitations on the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court—as the Constitution allows Congress to do.

Ultimately the power of government relies on the consent of the governed. When a branch of government leaps beyond its proper authority, as the Supreme Court did in the Obergefell decision, civil disobedience and passive resistance are natural ways by which the people withdraw their consent, and force—one hopes—a restoration of limited republican government.

Barack Obama – the mystery man of the century

This came from a union guy in Chicago who didn’t vote for Obama. Very, very interesting perspective that I never thought of in this light. It will be interesting to see what they put in his “Presidential Library” about his early years when he is out of office.

In a country where we take notice of many, many facets of our public figures’ lives, doesn’t seem odd that there’s so little we know about our current president, Barack Obama.

For example, we know that Andrew Jackson ‘s wife smoked a corn cob pipe and was accused of adultery;

Abe Lincoln never went to school.

Jack Kennedy wore a back brace; Harry Truman played the piano.

As Americans, we enjoy knowing details about our newsmakers, but none of us know one single humanizing fact about the history of our own president.
