Insanely Ridiculous Predictions of Doom and Destruction from the First “Earth Day” [1970] That Never Happened

Earth En Fuego

By Gary P Jackson

Ah, “Earth Day” the annual event where Communists, Socialists, Fascists, “progressives,” “liberals,” democrats and other greedy, power hungry bastards, who dream of having absolute power over the human race [for fun and profit] team up with their billionaire political cronies and other con artists looking to make a quick buck, using junk science [and outright bullshit] to scare the living Hell out of people who haven’t even the most rudimentary understanding of actual science and how the world really works. Naive people who will fall for anything the corrupt lamestream media tells them, despite over 100 years worth of empirical evidence [and, you know, plain old common sense] to the contrary!

Green Police

We’ve been hearing predictions of gloom and doom for the past 45 years, and absolutely NONE of them have come to pass, and yet, ignorant people lose their shit every time someone claims this or that is due to “global warming” or the new word “climate change“!

While extremists and bullshit artists today scream about global warming, and Al Gore tells us the earth “has a fever” [even though the hottest decade on record was the 1930s] back in the 1970’s, it was the coming ICE AGE, that these lunatics were using to scare otherwise normal people to death!

Starting in 1972 and all through the 70’s, Time Magazine ran articles warning of a coming Ice Age , complete with dire warnings of mass starvation, world wars [over dwindling food resources, of course] and within a decade or so, complete and total extinction of all living things: plant, animal, and human, on earth!

While today the oceans warming is a sure sign of global warming, the same condition was said to signal a coming Ice Age in the 1970’s. You simply can’t make this of weapons grade insanity up!

Time Magazine Coming Ice Age Cover

Time-Another-Ice-Age

How insane did it all get? The Central “Intelligence” Agency [the CIA, yes THAT CIA] claimed that record flooding and other extreme weather that portions of the world was experiencing in the early 1970’s was due to “global cooling” which is hilarious, when you consider today’s extremists claim any and all bad weather, including flooding, is caused by “global warming“!

CIA Global Cooling Nonsense

Of course, all of this was complete and total nonsense, and nothing but junk science, but the media, in cahoots with the liberal fascists, Socialists, Communists, democrats, and other filthy rat bastards seeking world domination, power, and riche$ played it up to the hilt in order to scare people into submission. Thankfully, this was before President Jimmy Carter federalized our education system, and children were still taught ACTUAL science. It was also, thankfully, before the internet. As a result, few people bought into the hysteria. People used to have a fair amount of common sense built into their DNA!

Both Steve Goddard and David Middleton covered the nonsense, fear-mongering, and wildly insane predictions from Time in greater detail here and here.

A few decades later, Time would use cute and cuddly polar bears to scare the living crap out of stupid people who believe anything they read in Time!

Time Magazine Polar Bear

Here’s some facts about the polar bear the extremists hope you never find out. For one thing, these cuddly little bears are actually ENORMOUS and quite VICIOUS. They have absolute ZERO natural enemies. Nothing out in the animal kingdom hunts them. The polar bears do the hunting!

Polar bears can also swim incredible distances.

According to a study conducted by the United States Geological Survey [USGS] between 2004 and 2009, polar bears are capable of swimming as far as 220 miles in one day, while the average distance a bear covers in a day is 96 miles.

From Reuters News Service:

Tue May 1, 2012 10:35pm EDT

Polar bears are capable of swimming vast distances, a potential survival skill needed in an Arctic environment where summer sea ice is vanishing, a study led by the U.S. Geological Survey showed on Tuesday.

The study, published in the Canadian Journal of Zoology, tracked 52 female polar bears in the southern Beaufort Sea off Alaska. Between 2004 and 2009, a period of extreme summer-ice retreat, about a third of those bears made swims exceeding 30 miles in distance, according to the study results.

The 50 recorded ultra-marathon swims averaged 96 miles, and one bear was able to swim nearly 220 miles, according to the study results. The duration of the long-distance swims lasted from most of a day to nearly 10 days, according to the study.
The bears’ movements were tracked using global positioning system collars. All the animals in the study were females because male polar bear necks are too thick for GPS-equipped collars, said Karen Oakley, a supervising biologist at the USGS Alaska Science Center.

Many of the polar bears in the study had young cubs with them, and it appears that at least some of the cubs – which were not collared – might have been able to keep up with their mothers in the water, USGS officials said.

The scientists were able to track 10 of the studied bears within a year of collaring and found that six still had their cubs, the lead scientist said in a statement released by the USGS.

These observations suggest that some cubs are also capable of swimming long distances. For the other four females with cubs, we don’t know if they lost their cubs before, during, or at some point after their long swims,” Anthony Pagano, a USGS scientist and lead author of the study, said in the statement.

It should be noted that the “period of extreme summer-ice retreat” is normal and happens every summer in the Arctic and has nothing to do with “climate change“!

The extremists LOVE to show a picture of a polar bear floating on ice, presumably stranded by global warming, and the fact there is no more ice in the Arctic. NOW you know that if a bear is floating on a piece of ice, she is simply taking a break! There is plenty of ice in the frozen north, and that bear is just fine!

Now on to “Earth Day” 1970

We’ve used several sources, including Jon Gabriel and IHateTheMedia to compile a list of predictions the environmental extremists and political fascists [but I repeat myself] predicted. You’ll find my comments in […] and bold after many of them!

**We have about five more years at the outside to do something.”
• Kenneth Watt, ecologist

**Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.
• George Wald, Harvard Biologist

[ It’s 45 years later and we are still going strong!]

**We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation.”
• Barry Commoner, Washington University biologist

[The earth is more habitable now than at any time in history. Yea technology!]

**Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.” • New York Times editorial, the day after the first Earth Day

This is actually TRUE! However, ignorant people confuse pollution and the general disregard for our environment, an actual issue in 1970, and the outright HOAX that is now being perpetrated by extremists, fascists, and billionaires looking to make even more money off the biggest scam in human history.

As a child I first heard the word “ecology” around 1969 or 1970, in school. There were serious problems with actual pollution in the United States as well as the rest of the world. Raw sewage and industrial chemicals were routinely dumped in rivers, lakes, and streams. It wasn’t uncommon to see people throw trash out their car windows while driving down the road!

There was a massive campaign to not only stop the dangerous practices of chemical dumping, and littering, but to clean up the damage already done. In some places we are still working on the cleanup, but America is much cleaner. Nothing is perfect, but people were made more aware and bad habits were changed. That’s a very good thing!]

**Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.
• Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

**By…[1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.”
• Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

[Ehrlich is the author of “The Population Bomb a book that predicted a population explosion that would end the world. He, along with Al Gore, Ted Turner and other extremist nut jobs have declared we should reduced the entire world’s population to roughly 100 million, in order to “save” the planet. There are roughly 320 million people living in the United States alone. Depending on which agency you believe, there are between 7 and 7.5 BILLION people on earth today!

Technology has allowed the development of greater sources of food from smaller plots of land. One of the biggest developments came well before Ehrlich’s wild eyed prediction. In the early 1960’s a man named Norman Borlaug created a genetically modified [GMO] strain of wheat, called Dwarf Wheat. In most of the less developed world, normal wheat would grow tall, and since there was a lack of machinery to harvest it in a timely manner, rot in the fields, as the wheat stalks simply bent over and lay on the ground. Dwarf Wheat stands erect, and allows for the manual harvesting of the crop, and gives field workers more time to do it.

It is said that, and Borlaug is credited with, saving ONE BILLION lives with his amazing creation! Borlaug was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize [back when that thing meant something] as well as the Congressional Gold Medal and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, to name a few honors. This is one of the greatest advancements in history and everyone should read up on Borlaug and his Dwarf Wheat]

*** FUN FACT: Though extremists claim the earth is “out of room” for it’s population, the entire world’s population could fit in a land mass the size of Texas!

**It is already too late to avoid mass starvation.
• Denis Hayes, chief organizer for Earth Day

[The only people starving in the United States are the poor school kids who are forced to eat the lunches Michelle Obama thinks they should! -Search online for photos of these “fine dining” options the First Lady has provided!

So-called “scientists” tell us that obesity, or TOO MUCH FOOD is one of the greatest crisis mankind is facing these days!]

**Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions….By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.
• Peter Gunter, professor, North Texas State University

[Yeah, didn’t happen!]

**Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….
Life Magazine, January 1970

[in reality, according to multiply government studies, the quality of air in the United States has never been better! NOW the extremists claim we are getting TOO MUCH sun!!!! That said, places like China, which has fewer standards and overcrowded cities, are still facing air quality issues. This is an issue of poor standards not “climate change.”]

**At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable.”
• Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

[See above]

**We are prospecting for the very last of our resources and using up the nonrenewable things many times faster than we are finding new ones.”
• Martin Litton, Sierra Club director

[Total bullshit! We are still finding new resources for energy]

**By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate…that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, `Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, `I am very sorry, there isn’t any.’”
• Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

[Extremists continue to push the outright LIE that we are “running out of oil As I reported in an article entitled 2 Trillion Barrels of American Oil: Why Wealthy Arab Oil Sheiks Are Funding Matt Damon’s Anti-Fracking Propaganda Film

While total world resources of oil shale are conservatively estimated at 2.6 trillion barrels, The United States sits on TWO TRILLION barrels of that crude. More than all of the crude that was ever produced worldwide since the petroleum age began.

[In the article I also noted there was a recent find of 1.67 QUADRILLION (1670 TRILLION) cubic feet of natural gas in the Arctic and …. :

Another staggering number is found in the Green River Formation in Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah. There is said to be 1.5 trillion barrels of oil, or 6 times what is held in all of Saudi Arabia.

There is so much oil in the Bakken Shale deposits in North Dakota, private investors are looking to build a $1.8 billion pipeline from North Dakota to Oklahoma. A hefty investment and a huge jobs program at a time we need a huge jobs program.

[Add in roughly 250 years worth of coal deposits, and the United States has enough oil and natural gas to be 100% energy independent for the next 500 to 800 years, depending on consumption rates.]

**Dr. S. Dillon Ripley, secretary of the Smithsonian Institute, believes that in 25 years, somewhere between 75 and 80 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.
• Sen. Gaylord Nelson

[So ridiculous that it’s hard to know what to say, EXCEPT that scientists are still discovering hundreds of new species on land and in the world’s oceans every single year! (Look it up) The earth is as vibrant and alive as anytime in recorded history!]

**The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.
• Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

[Now these loons tell us the world is about to spontaneously combust from all the heat!]

** “[One] theory assumes that the earth’s cloud cover will continue to thicken as more dust, fumes, and water vapor are belched into the atmosphere by industrial smokestacks and jet planes. Screened from the sun’s heat, the planet will cool, the water vapor will fall and freeze, and a new Ice Age will be born.” — Newsweek Magazine

[Again, these same crackpots and scam artists are NOW telling us that all of these things that were supposed to create a new and civilization destroying Ice Age, are now causing global warming! (or as they now call it “climate change” so as to cover ANY imaginary calamity]

You will be bombarded with absolute hysteria and bullshit today. You will be told the world will end in just a few short years if you don’t turn over complete control of you life, as well as your wallet, to these extremists. Don’t fall for it.

Life is good. Damn good!!

Go out and enjoy it!

Reminder: Nazis Were SOCIALISTS, Just Like Today’s DEMOCRATS! Nexflix’s Attack on Sarah Palin

netflix_fail

By Gary P Jackson

I know I am not the only Conservative who is beyond tired of hate filled democrats calling us Nazis! Not only is it wrong, ideologically, it’s wrong historically. Nazi is an abbreviation for the much longer Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or National SOCIALIST German Workers’ Party.

For decades, America’s democrats have been trying to re-write history, calling Nazis, whom they share much of the same ideology with, “right-wingers.” It’s no different than trying to tie the KKK to Republicans, knowing full well that the democrat party created the KKK, and up until June of 2010, had a high ranking Klan member: Senator Robert C Byrd, serving as one of their Senators. A “well respected” man among democrat party members. Byrd wasn’t the only Klan member that served in Congress as a democrat, not by a long shot.

Now of course, there are degrees of socialism, I guess there are degrees of any evil, but all forms of it share the basic tenants, and all forms of it, like all forms of liberalism in general, are incompatible with civilized society. They are certainly incompatible with the American way of life, as we see on a daily basis.

American democrats haven’t started rounding up and killing their rivals … yet … but some of their now mainstream people have certainly advocated just that! It’s a good time to remind Americans about one of President Obama’s close friends [and former employer] murdering domestic terrorist Bill Ayers.

Ayers and his Weather Underground terrorist group, bombers, just like the two murderers up in Boston, wanted to destroy America, and create a socialist state. Ayers, who is now a tenured university professor, knew many Americans wouldn’t be down with his evil plan, and was prepared to murder as many as 25 MILLION people. Ayers’ little fantasy makes Hitler look like an underachiever!

In 1969, Larry Grathwohl, an FBI informant, was at the Weather Underground’s so-called “War Council” in Flint, Michigan. Ayers and his team discussed re-education camps and the likelihood of having to “eliminate” as many as 25 MILLION Americans, the number of people they estimated wouldn’t go along with their maniacal plans. This is something the Nazis actually did, just not on as grand of a scale.

Of course the Nazis weren’t the only socialists to murder millions of their own. Though we tend to refer to the Soviets as communists, people forget the official name of that version of Russia was the Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics, or USSR. Lenin and Stalin killed so many fellow Russians, they didn’t have enough competent people left to run the country!

You rarely see democrats carrying Nazi flags today, but yesterday, May 1, thousands of democrats were out there carrying the Hammer & Sickle celebrating “May Day” a wicked leftist holiday, celebrating socialism. Not much difference in the two, except democrats somehow feel celebrating murder and violence in the name of Soviet socialism is somehow more acceptable than celebrating murder and violence in the name of Nazi socialism.

Democrats are quite sick in the head.

Throw in Mao and the Chinese, and socialism has directly caused the murder of around 100 MILLION people world-wide.

Which reminds me, besides Obama adviser Anita Dunn telling school children that the murderous Mao was her “favorite philosopher,” a few Christmases back, the communist dictator made an appearance on the official White House Christmas tree!

But don’t you DARE call Obama a communist or socialist!

By the way, this DOESN’T count the millions of innocent children slaughtered at the hands of Planned Parenthood’s murder cultists. They too make the Nazis look like underachievers.

Why do I bring all of this up? Well, it seems Netflix, the online movie retailer decided to play in the Twitter hashtag game #SarahPalinFilms. They suggested an exceptionally crappy film “Iron Sky.” The ridiculously bad film features a “Sarah Palin like” character, or at least the bullshit democrat version of Sarah Palin, as a “moon Nazi.”

This wasn’t just some off the cuff deal either Netflix created artwork to go with this moronic tweet:

Our friends at Twitchy captured the anger from Americans who were quite unhappy at this. Most saying they would be cancelling their subscriptions. Here’s a few choice tweets:

From our own Whitney Pitcher:

More:

Netflix does indeed offer both The Undefeated an incredibly well done film and Sarah Palin’s Alaska her great travel/adventure series that set a new record for viewership numbers on TLC.

You’d think a company looking to make money would actually promote both of these fine entries rather than some Nazi BS. As always with democrats, ideology trumps everything, so does their insane hatred.

For it’s part, Netflix is so chicken-shit it tried to deny the tweet came from them. That’s worse than the tweet itself! If you are going to be a worthless hate-filled democrat, OWN IT!

Read much more at Twitchy here:

Absurd: Netflix rep denies Palin-mocking tweet, then claims ‘no reflection on our position’

Pathetic: Netflix joins #SarahPalinFilms hashtag by suggesting flick about moon Nazis

‘I can see Redbox from my front porch’: Backlash over Netflix’s Palin-mocking tweet erupts

As for me and my thoughts on Netflix? Well I think Johnny Cash said it best!

Disturbing Gallup: Most Democrats Have a Positive View of Socialism, Big Government [and so do some Republicans!]

Communism has never come to power in a country that was not disrupted by war or corruption, or both.

~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy 35th President of the United States

I blame the feckless, spineless Republican Party 100% for the results of this latest polling from Gallup.

Communism and socialism are the greatest evils ever foisted on mankind. And yet, the GOP, which is supposed to be the “loyal opposition” to these evils, is afraid to talk about it! The Republican Party’s latest failed candidate for President, Mitt Romney, when asked, REFUSED to call Barack Obama a socialist. That’s right, Mitt Romney refused to call Barack Obama, who was raised from birth by hard-core, Anti-American COMMUNISTS a “socialist.” And the GOP is still trying to figure out why they lost the election!

Ronald Reagan, famously a democrat until the 1960s, railed against communism and socialism all of his life. Reagan understood the evils of communism and socialism. He saw them as barbaric ideologies that destroy humanity. Reagan saw his party, the democrat party, taken over by communists and socialists, and famously said “I didn’t leave the party, the party left me” [a sentiment many are feeling about today’s Republican Party, BTW] But Reagan wasn’t the only well known democrat who hated communism and socialism, and the evils they represent. John F Kennedy constantly spoke of the evils of both, there is plenty of tape of Kennedy doing so.

My point?

Why doesn’t the GOP use this and other information to help educate the American people who have been dumbed-down by liberal run education, liberal run media, and liberal run entertainment?

If they were smart, Republicans could use nothing but democrats blasting socialism and the evil it represents, to defeat today’s socialist-communist controlled democrat party. Not just defeat them, but send the party and it’s failed ideology to the ash-heap of history, where it belongs. They don’t call the GOP the “Stupid Party” for nothing though.

We have a population that doesn’t even understand that the Nazis were SOCIALISTS or that Nazi was short for Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei in English: the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. Instead you have the Nazis described as “right wing” by the media and “historians” in an attempt to re-write history, a common communist/socialist tactic.

In his iconic 1964 speech: A Time for Choosing, Ronald Reagan suggested there was no such thing as right or left, politically, just an up …. or …. down. He was right, and there is nothing that drags humanity further down than communism and socialism…..

….and yet, the Republican Party, a group sensible Americans have always looked to for protection against such evils, remains clueless and unwilling to fight for America against these great evils.

I chose the Kennedy quote above for a reason. We are at war, for sure, but it’s the massive corruption, the crony capitalism, the payoffs to political allies, with tax payer dollars, that is the problem. Barack Obama may be the king of Chicago style, corrupt, crony politics, but make no mistake, there’s plenty of cronyism to go around in the Republican Party as well. It’s this massive corruption in both parties that has allowed the notion of communism and socialism to thrive in America.

We expect nothing but evil and corruption from modern day democrats, but many in the GOP would rather hang on to their piece of the pie than rock the boat. I’m not calling Mitt Romney corrupt, it seems that he’s a rather decent, if not spineless, fellow, but it’s telling that he couldn’t bring himself to use the rather mild [but just as evil] socialist moniker to describe Barack Obama, a hard core, raised from birth, Saul Alinsky COMMUNIST.

You cannot defeat evil with timidity.

Gallup’s latest polling is disturbing, to say the least. It shows that most democrats, not surprisingly, hate big business, capitalism, and embrace socialism. More disturbing is that nearly a quarter of self-described Republicans hold these same views. It would almost seem all of these Republicans are currently serving in Congress or in “leadership positions within the RNC, looking at the state of affairs.

PRINCETON, NJ — Exemplifying a major partisan divide in modern politics, Democrats react significantly more positively to the term “federal government” than they do to the term “capitalism,” while the opposite is true for Republicans. But both Democrats and Republicans are highly positive about the terms “small business,” “free enterprise,” and “entrepreneurs.”

Several very interesting results here. Republicans and democrats both see small business in a highly favorable light. In fact, at 95 and 94 percent, respectively, they are identical in their views. However, democrats are less favorable to free enterprise, 6 points less, and entrepreneurs, 7 points less, than Republicans.

Never mind that pretty much 100% of small business owners are entrepreneurs who rely on free enterprise to survive. And never mind that communism and socialism are the sworn enemies of small businesses, free enterprise, and entrepreneurs.

It would seem there is a disconnect somewhere!

It’s troubling to me that Republicans aren’t answering closer to 100% on all three of these. It’s also troubling that only 72% of Republicans view capitalism favorably, only 75% have a favorable view of big business, and a mind-blowing 23 PERCENT see socialism in a favorable light.

Again, the Republican Party is still trying figure out why, once again, they lost. Not only lost, but lost to the worst president in the 236 year history of our nation. I think we’ve, at least partly, stumbled on the answer.

The idea that any American would view socialism favorably is just hateful, but the results of this polling speak to the absolute failure of the GOP as a political party, let alone protector of Liberty and Freedom.

Gallup conducted a similar poll in 2010, and sadly, it’s only gotten worse:

The chart combines both parties together, but it simply doesn’t compute. While those surveyed feel even more positive towards free enterprise and entrepreneurs now than they did in 2010 [and even big business for that matter] there is a sharp rise in those who favor Big Federal Government and socialism. Both of which are the absolute enemies of small businesses, free enterprise, and entrepreneurs. And for that matter, big business too!

It’s obvious that while pining for more of it, and re-electing the most radical of socialist-communist radicals as President, most democrats and a disturbing number of Republicans, have absolutely no idea what socialism actually is.

At least that’s what I want to believe. The alternative, that the majority of those surveyed DO know and understand what socialism is, and want it anyway, is just too depressing to even contemplate.

The bottom line is 53% of democrats and 23% of Republicans have a favorable view of socialism. That’s 53 and 23 percent, respectively, too damned many!

Thank the spineless GOP for this. Someone should have been fighting the fight against this evil, and working night and day to educate the public. Far too many Republicans were more worried about holding on to their own little centers of power to care.

Tyrant Obama’s Campaign Will Spend 4th of July Fundraising in Socialist France

By Gary P Jackson

What better way for Obama to celebrate the enslavement of the American people, via the Supreme Court’s treacherous ruling, than to send his campaign, along with his Hollywood pals, off to France, which just elected a far left socialist government, for the 4th of July!

Ben Shapiro at Andrew Breitbart’s Big Hollywood reports:

Apparently tiring of US soil as a source of campaign dollars, the Obama campaign is headed overseas — with its celebrity friends in tow. The European Obama campaign starts next week in Paris on July 4 with a reception organized by various fundraising heavy-hitters. Independence Day fundraisers in Paris – now that’s a flag-waving campaign.

The Obama campaign will host events in Geneva, Switzerland in August as part of their “European outreach effort.” George Clooney will headline a fundraiser there, with 150 tickets going for $20,000 per piece. There’s even more to the bargain: if you go as a couple, the second ticket is half-off!

With the Obama campaign’s increasingly desperate campaign emails begging for cash from the American people, perhaps the campaign thinks they’ll find more fertile soil outside the country. Especially in the aftermath of the Supreme Court ruling that upholds Obama’s European-style healthcare plan, Obama’s hoping to cash in on like-minded folks abroad.

Americans don’t believe that Obamacare is a triumph; they see it as a massive net negative, sucking our coffers dry and handing us long-term rationing in return. Europeans, however, know nothing else. The entitlements have already kicked in. What better place to ask for campaign cash?

Ben is right. The Obama campaign has been having trouble raising money in this country. Europeans, who haven’t known real Liberty and Freedom for generations, don’t know any better.

The tyrant Obama will remain here, pretending to give a damn about America. The L.A. Times reports:

President Obama is heading to Camp David for the weekend before returning to Washington on Tuesday. On Wednesday, he will host the traditional Independence Day celebration for members of the military and their families on the South Lawn of the White House. The barbecue offers a premier view of the fireworks on the national Mall.

After raising money in New York on Friday, unofficial GOP nominee Mitt Romney also plans to take  the weekend off. His next public event is expected to be a July 4 parade near his vacation home on the banks of Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire.  

Alas, there’s no such thing as extended time off in a campaign year. Obama will resume his effort to win a second term  on Thursday with a bus tour of Pennsylvania and Ohio.  Romney’s known calendar appears sparse, though his heavy fundraising pace is expected to continue in coming weeks.

Among other events, he plans a fundraiser with former Vice President Dick Cheney in Jackson Hole, Wyo.

Romney has been raising millions of dollars since the Court’s despicable ruling. Even with the regime sending it’s team, along with the Hollywood swells, to France, look for Romney to continue to out-pace Obama in fundraising.

Mourning vs Morning In America

By Gary P Jackson

This is a new video from the Citizens For Responsible Government. The work, based on the iconic television commercials President Ronald Reagan used in his 1984 re-election campaign, speaks volumes.

From the video notes:

In 1984, the Reagan reelection campaign set the standard for modern political advertising with its fabled “Morning in America” series, which included one of the greatest political ads of all time — “Better, Prouder, Stronger.” The ad captured the zeitgeist — America under President Reagan was coming back, full of optimism and confidence in the future.

Today, the zeitgeist is exactly the opposite. Americans are worried about their future, and about a government determined to implement policies that just don’t work. But like its predecessor, “Mourning in America” offers a new hope — if we can just get our government to return to time-tested policies that can spark a rebirth of liberty.

Having survived the Carter years, which can best be described as horrific, Ronald Reagan was a real hero to Americans. So bad was Carter, it took two full Reagan terms for America to really turn around, and frankly, with the cancers on society Carter created like the Community Re-investment Act, which triggered the financial collapse we are dealing with now, and the creation of the Department of Education, which has destroyed the quality of education in this country, while throwing hundreds of billions of dollars into a bottomless pit, we are dealing with Carter’s stupidity to this very day.

With that said, in just four short years, President Ronald Reagan’s strong conservative leadership had turned America from a depressed wasteland full of people that had given up on the American dream, to a proud nation that was energized once again.

People were going back to work, the economy was moving again.

Carter had severely reduced military spending as most Marxist-democrats do, and left America is peril from the Soviet Union and others. His deliberate tolerance of Muslim radicals led to fall of Iran’s government, the establishment of the current terrorist state, and the seizure of American hostages.

These hostages were held by the terrorist Iranian government for over 400 days, only to be released as Ronald Reagan was being sworn in as President of the United States.

It was Reagan’s powerful stance against our enemies: “We win, they lose” that made people proud to be Americans again. Couple that with Reagan’s natural optimism, his love of America, and his unwavering belief in the American people and it was truly Morning in America again.

Compare the Carter era style misery, the video above depicts, with the unbridled optimism, and feeling you get from Reagan’s campaign spot. While you watch, please remember, this is how people really felt, and it showed at the polls as Reagan won a 49 state landslide in his bid for re-election.

We have a Ronald Reagan among us today. Someone whose optimism, enthusiasm, pioneering spirit, and deep love for this land and our people. Coupled with the experience and leadership skills to get things done, she gives us all hope. Like Ronald Reagan, she sees American as a Shining City on the Hill.

I look forward to Morning in America again, and can’t wait to see what her re-election campaign ads will look like in 2016.

Though written in 1980. The Charlie Daniels song below became an incredibly popular anthem during the Ronald Reagan Recovery. I wonder what the hot song will be during the Sarah Palin Recovery!

Sarah Palin Talks Illegal Immigration, Socialism, BP, Oil Spills, And Putting America Back On The Right Track

When the President went on to speak about immigration, some people are going to listen to his sound bites and ask: “Is this another ‘you lie’ moment?

~Sarah Palin

On Wednesday, Sarah Palin gave a lengthy interview with Fox Business News’ David Asman on his popular America’s Nightly Scoreboard show. In this interview, Sarah talks about a wide range of topics: The power of her political endorsements, Obama’s march towards socialism, British Petroleum, the oil spill, corruption, and of course, the hot topic of illegal immigration.

No words minced here. This is Sarah Palin callin’ it like she sees it.

Palin on Putting America Back on Track

Palin: Every Border State Should Have Arizonas Law

Palin: We Cannot Continue on Road Toward Socialism

Palin on BP Oil Spill, Terrorism

This is serious red meat Sarah is dishing out. Solid answers to the most pressing questions of our time. Here is Sarah Palin showing not only her toughness, but her belief in American Exceptionalism.

Sarah also talks about her own career as she dealt with corruption, especially within the Alaska Republican Party, as well as her hard core stance on the oil companies and environmental responsibility.

Why aren’t we hearing this sort of candor and enthusiasm, and these sort of solutions from the GOP show ponies who think it’s “their turn” in 2012?

Make Mine Freedom!

Sometimes something comes along that just blows you away. This is one of those times.

Just as we are now, there was another time when America was fighting the strong advances of communism. There were many Americans who thought communism was the way to go, just as there are now. Lots of folks have vilified Senator Joe McCarthy, who held hearings looking for communists in America. Many have said there were no communists. History proves that McCarthy was absolutely correct.

This cartoon is from 1948, just as the Cold War was kicking into high gear. Just as we have now, many snake oil salesmen were out there trying to convince Americans that communism was the way to go, that if folks would just give up certain freedoms, the all powerful, all knowing government would take care of them forever.

“A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.”

Thomas Jefferson

This patriotic cartoon is from John Sutherland Productions and a series he called “Fun and Facts About America.” Many of us growing up watching these things as kids, even in the 1960’s, as so many of the great 1940’s and 1950’s cartoons were recycled for new generations. Cartoons were more sophisticated back then, in my opinion, many times geared toward an older audience.

I’ll leave it to the reader’s imagination, but see if “Dr Utopia” the snake oil salesman doesn’t remind you of someone we know all too well today.

The march to communism and tyranny is moving at break neck speed under Barack Obama and the democrat/communist party. This is the most dangerous time America has faced in her 233 year history. We are only a vote or two away by members of the most corrupt United States Congress in history, and a couple of signatures from the most corrupt President in United States history, from becoming a communist state and losing many of our most basic God given freedoms, rights guaranteed in our Constitution. .

Barack Obama is on record describing our Constitution is a “flawed document” and of course, saying we need to “fundamentally change America.” Barack Obama was raised by communists and mentored by communists. He’s rubbed elbows with, served on boards with, has given speeches with, and had his first book “ghostwritten” by, a domestic terrorist, a committed Marxist.

What more do you need to know?

As we still fight the struggle to keep Obama and his corrupt democrat/communist controlled Congress from destroying the greatest health care system on earth, and totally usurping our Constitution, let me leave you with this from Ronald Reagan. This is from the 1961 Operation Coffee Cup Campaign against government run health care.

Many of you have seen this before, but as with most things Reagan, it’s both timeless, and always on point, even today. Listen intently for the first 53 seconds, and it will sum up the entire ObamaCare scheme perfectly and why we must fight Obama and the communists with all of our might.

Ronald Reagan On Socialized Medicine

This piece of history from the great Ronald Reagan needs little set up, or commentary. As always, Reagan says it well. His very first words say so much, and looking through the prism of history were 100 percent correct. The rest is rather chilling.

This speech was done in 1961 and was part of a Coffee Cup Campaign against socialized medicine, a scheme the democrats were floating around at the time. This of course stands as proof that you can never turn your back on a democrat, because they are always scheming, always planing their insanity.

Ronald Reagan was a private citizen at the time this was recorded. And of course this socialist scheme was defeated.

Say, isn’t there a certain western Governor who is about to become a private citizen in about a week?

Wonder what she will have to say on this?
