THE NEW FRONTIER

Vassar Bushmills

The album was entitled #16, (1963) and inspired by none other than John F Kennedy, a Democrat.

Go Figure

It was the last album of theirs I ever bought.

I wonder if the words will work today?

THE PROMISE OF SOCIALISM IN A SINGLE SONG

Vassar Bushmills

This says it all.


We’ve been blessed to be able to watch this promise proved before jumping in head first

I have no doubt that Democratic Socialism, when it emerged as the dominant political arrangement in Europe following World War II. It was a slow process, but in 1993 the pact was inked, and now has grown to 28 decreasingly independent states, and 513 decreasingly free people.

They were forewarned.

Modern and urbane, all the Europeans’ socialist plans nevertheless failed, each country at its own pace, to be propped up by introducing hundreds of thousands of immigrants for purposes I’m still not quite sure. All we know is that they can’t let their people, or their domains and return to self-determination.

So now, as predicted, they must begin to consider the darker side of their elusive lover and the role extraordinary cruelty will have to play in holding onto power once all its other now that those schemes have failed. For they will not let go.

There are all sorts of natural laws involved in branding and selling socialism, even if well-intentioned instead of knowing lies.

“The Snake” says it all.

FIRST PRINCIPLES ABOUT AMERICA; FIRST QUESTIONS

Vassar Bushmills

Is America an accident? A freak of Nature?  Or, is America the product of Intelligent Design?

I don’t intend to try to answer the second half of that question here as that requires an inquiry into philosophy and theology. But by the longest list of scientific and common sense proofs, I think I can say without equivocation that America is no accident. We cannot be a freak of Nature. So you can sort of figure out the rest yourself.

This is something we no longer teach our children, but we are unique.

Now, scholars (intellectuals) for the past 200 years have had no problem ignoring this question, for they think it’s a trick question, which does not really require an answer. If they reply that Yes, America is a freak, then the obvious response from the trickster asking the question is: Then why has America survived so long? In nature almost all mutations quickly die out. They can rarely survive into a second generation, much less a third.

And America is into somewhere around its 118th generation of de facto self-governance, while, before the 1787 Constitution, there is no recorded history of a real nation (bigger than a tribe) ever making it past one. (Agreed, also prior to 1787, almost all history was written by “scribes of the kings”, the real name for “historians” for millennia, so there could have been dozens of nascent self-governed peoples who were simply squished, or gobbled up by a next-door invading king, only they were too small and insignificant to rate a page in the “annals of the king” being prepared by his historians.)

In fact, the archaeological record of pre-dynastic Egypt suggests this is how several tribes of farm people in the Nile region slowly morphed into an organized hierarchical “corporation”, with a chairman of the board king, a head priest, and every other person in the realm owing some duty to them. Subjects.

The Egyptians and a few other empires in a region from the eastern Mediterranean to the Indus Valley (India) started this process of “civilization” about 3000 BC, 5000 years ago. And they did many wondrous things, especially building things that for generations for centuries could; i.e. monuments to themselves, which was their purpose.

They didn’t just sort of spring up. Any fifth grader can make a list of all the things necessary for a “civilization” to grow and survive; food, water source, commerce, housing, security, common language…but the fifth grader will likely not know to include the intangibles, such as common purpose, reciprocity, you know a code of conduct with one another which no religion I know of, save one, ever bothered to list. Every nation had a list of “how to get along with the Boss”, but no one that I know ever had a list of “how to get along with your neighbors”…except for a small tribe in central Mesopotamia[…]

FIRST PRINCIPLES: FIRST IMPRESSIONS ABOUT AMERICA

Vassar Bushmills

Anyone, anywhere, who hears the name “America” already has a first impression about America; either positive or negative. It doesn’t matter if he/she is 18 or 80, and located anywhere in the world.

If abroad those impressions are a mixture of street talk, music, films, and of course, relatives who may have traveled there or live. One man from one village can go to America, and everyone in that valley has a impression of America that no government can conceal.

I knew such a family from Dayton whose father had come to America from a village in Slovakia before WWII, taking work in a steel mill. He left a wife and son back home. Just before the war he went back to bring his wife to America. But he had to leave his 6-year old behind with relatives to secure the family lands. Once in America, Papa and Mama Miluks started a new family, his youngest son my best friend for many years from the Army. In the late 1970s, while on duty in Germany, he was allowed to travel to Slovakia and meet his eldest brother and see the village and old home place, and of course, take gifts. When I visited his family in Dayton Mama Miluks showed me the special place she kept all her letters from her son, who she had not seen since 1940. But those letters! She wrote many-paged reports every week for over 40 years, giving a weekly account of things going on with his papa and brothers and sister, learning quickly to never speak of certain things, for by ’46 the Communists had moved in and her letters were first read and redacted by postal censors, cutting all references to the availability of consumer goods commonly available in America, especially food. Her son, in turn, would reply with heavily redacted letters. He would die in the early 1990’s of the general poor heath common to socialist countries so was never able to join his family. He never met his other two younger brothers or sister. And of course his last personal memory of his parents was when he was 6.

But I am quite sure every adult in that village had clear impressions of America because of Mr Miluks, who went to America.

I tell this story because one, it’s true, and two, it is, next to the Christian’s ideal of Heaven, an impression of America as a place that one has never been and most wants to go, which cannot be duplicated anywhere else. I have met people in several countries and four continents, including Palestinian Arabs (on an overnight sleeper in Russia) and from all I hear basically the same thing, “If only I could go to America.”

(This is not what we are seeing today on our southern border, by the way, so I won’t take this discussion in that direction, although just 30-40 years ago, down there, where I also lived, this was a common refrain, “If I can only get to America.” I deal with this subject in an upcoming conversation about Assimilation, which should be a topic of policy discussion if we can ever get fully in charge or our government again.)

So, abroad, America is viewed through two entirely different prisms, divided by two classes: 1) the political class and 2) all the rest[…]

Half of Hispanic Voters View President Trump “Favorably.”

More than half of the Hispanic voters in the United States approve of President Donald J. Trump.  Surprised? Don’t be, add this to the “as not reported by the deep state media complex” pile.

As reported by the Washington Examiner, quoting the stats from a by poll taken McLaughlin & Associates for Newsmax, 47 percent of Hispanics have a positive view President Trump while fifty percent (50%) approve of Trump’s job which includes his handling of the border. One heck of a secret, wouldn’t you say but the facts speak for themselves.

Washington Examiner by Paul Bedard

As President Trump doubles down on his pledge to build a southern border wall, Hispanics are showing broad support for him, according to a new survey.

Some 50 percent of Hispanics approve of the president’s job, according to the latest McLaughlin & Associates poll of likely general election voters.

What’s more, the Republican Party has regained its edge over Democrats in the generic congressional ballot.

Pollsters John and Jim McLaughlin suggested that with the end of the Russia collusion probe aiding the president and Republicans, they are poised to come back in the poll and win re-election in 2020[…]

Speaking of which, in spite of efforts by the media, the likes of VH1, BET and TMZ’s brainwashing of stupid American voters, Nancy Pelosi’s favorability rating is in the hole.  Voters are not buying what Communists are selling.

— In contrast, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is disliked: 33 percent favorable, 54 percent unfavorable. Two thirds of independent voters, 63 percent, disapprove of the job Speaker Pelosi is doing and so do a quarter, 25 percent, of all Democrats.

By the way, on the subject of Socialism, dog whistle for Communism, AOC and fellow Commies are on the wrong side of history because Americans, all around and regardless of party affiliation want smaller government, “51 percent, philosophically prefer a smaller federal government and only 30 percent want larger government. This includes 31 percent among all Democrats who want smaller government….”

Below is President Trump’s rally earlier this year in Florida before a majority Hispanic audience of Venezuelans and Cubans, many of whom legally entered the United States after fleeing their countries under Communist regimes.
