I think the world, especially this radical Muslim group in the Middle East, needs to face the facts; the people of Israel aren’t going to go away. If you believe in the Bible, in whole or in part, you kinda start to see that Israelites are truly ‘God’s People.’ They have been enslaved; nations have tried to eliminate their race from the face of the planet; and they have lost and regained their land a handful of times… but you know what? They always win in the end. Israel is strong, it will always be strong, and I’ll go on record and say that they’ll never be defeated. Call it resilience, call it ‘God,’ call it whatever you’d like, but as a people, they are the strongest and most successful race in human history. I always hate it when people say things like “the Jews control the media…” or whatever it is that they say... Who cares? Seriously, why is that talked about like it’s a bad thing? I don’t care if one group of people runs a certain business or another. What have they done wrong to deserve those negative connotations? If we said something like “black people run the NBA,” that would be racist, but if you stereotype things with Jewish people, it just seems to be glossed over… which isn’t fair. I think the Hebrew nation is a great group of people who stand up for themselves when they need to, and are consistently blamed for the world’s problems by evil people. If the Muslim Brotherhood read their history books... the one's where Allah kept to the facts of the world instead of talking about how awesome martyrdom is, they'd realize that they are about to "write a check with their mouth that their asses can’t cash." Taking on Israel is a mistake…and the world should have learned this by now. Don’t think that more western cultures aren't lying in wait for the stomping of Muslim nations to go down either... If you take a look at what’s going on a little farther east…. Syria, Russia, and China are running war games. Why is this? Because they know that Israel is more than likely about to defend itself. Trust me on this; they aren’t going to attack Israel… only idiotic countries do that… I think they’re waiting to try to claim the scrap heaps that will remain once Israel is finished decimating its enemies. What countries should worry? Iran of course… They have constantly threatened the Jewish state and will probably try to act up if Egypt marches as promised. The other country that should worry. The only real question remaining is what will Israel do to react to an attack. Honestly, I believe we are not that far off from seeing Israel nuke an adversary. With the constant threat of nuclear weapons being developed in Iran, why wouldn’t they? If we were threatened by a neighboring country like Canada (that would never happen) wouldn’t we be up in arms and ready to defend in the blink of an eye by any means necessary? Add Mexico to the mix and we would have our fingers on the trigger of every weapon we had… would we not? Now think about Israel’s current situation. They are surrounded by enemies. Tensions are high and they have done all they can to not use heavy violence to defend their borders… If millions of people begin marching on Jerusalem, what do you think is going to happen? The fate of the world's future could be determined in the Middle East in the next few months. It's critical that you don't get distracted and pay attention to everything that is going on there now. Be smarter than they think you are.

It bothers me a little when conservatives call Barack Obama a "socialist." He certainly is an enemy of the free market, and wants politicians and bureaucrats to make the fundamental decisions about the economy. But that does not mean that he wants government ownership of the means of production, which has long been a standard definition of socialism.
What President Obama has been pushing for, and moving toward, is more insidious: government control of the economy, while leaving ownership in private hands. That way, politicians get to call the shots but, when their bright ideas lead to disaster, they can always blame those who own businesses in the private sector.
Politically, it is heads-I-win when things go right, and tails-you-lose when things go wrong. This is far preferable, from Obama's point of view, since it gives him a variety of scapegoats for all his failed policies, without having to use President Bush as a scapegoat all the time.
Government ownership of the means of production means that politicians also own the consequences of their policies, and have to face responsibility when those consequences are disastrous – something that Barack Obama avoids like the plague.
Thus the Obama administration can arbitrarily force insurance companies to cover the children of their customers until the children are 26 years old. Obviously, this creates favorable publicity for President Obama. But if this and other government edicts cause insurance premiums to rise, then that is something that can be blamed on the "greed" of the insurance companies.
The same principle, or lack of principle, applies to many other privately owned businesses. It is a very successful political ploy that can be adapted to all sorts of situations.
One of the reasons why both pro-Obama and anti-Obama observers may be reluctant to see him as fascist is that both tend to accept the prevailing notion that fascism is on the political right, while it is obvious that Obama is on the political left.
Back in the 1920s, however, when fascism was a new political development, it was widely – and correctly – regarded as being on the political left. Jonah Goldberg's great book Liberal Fascism cites overwhelming evidence of the fascists' consistent pursuit of the goals of the left, and of the left's embrace of the fascists as one of their own during the 1920s.
Mussolini, the originator of fascism, was lionized by the left, both in Europe and in America, during the 1920s. Even Hitler, who adopted fascist ideas in the 1920s, was seen by some, including W.E.B. Du Bois, as a man of the left.
It was in the 1930s, when ugly internal and international actions by Hitler and Mussolini repelled the world, that the left distanced themselves from fascism and its Nazi offshoot – and verbally transferred these totalitarian dictatorships to the right, saddling their opponents with these pariahs.
What socialism, fascism and other ideologies of the left have in common is an assumption that some very wise people – like themselves – need to take decisions out of the hands of lesser people, like the rest of us, and impose those decisions by government fiat.
The left's vision is not only a vision of the world, but also a vision of themselves, as superior beings pursuing superior ends. In the United States, however, this vision conflicts with a Constitution that begins, "We the People..."
That is why the left has for more than a century been trying to get the Constitution's limitations on government loosened or evaded by judges' new interpretations, based on notions of "a living Constitution" that will take decisions out of the hands of "We the People," and transfer those decisions to our betters.
The self-flattery of the vision of the left also gives its true believers a huge ego stake in that vision, which means that mere facts are unlikely to make them reconsider, regardless of what evidence piles up against the vision of the left, and regardless of its disastrous consequences.
Only our own awareness of the huge stakes involved can save us from the rampaging presumptions of our betters, whether they are called socialists or fascists. So long as we buy their heady rhetoric, we are selling our birthright of freedom.

13 June 2012 Recent cannibal attacks have pushed the media into a swirl. Since I have known more real cannibals than any non-cannibal I know, a few words are in order. Some context: In 2002, during travels through Asia, I stumbled across some Aghori cannibals in India. I had never heard of them and they sounded dangerous. I picked up the trail. The journey and the pursuit lasted two years, and took me six times around the world. I have sat by the fire at midnight on the full moon, surrounded by Aghoris, me alone, as they drank whiskey from human skulls. I have tracked them through India, Nepal, Thailand, Italy, Germany, France, Hawaii and California. I have read everything on Aghoris that was available in libraries and bookstores in India, The Royal Library, and the Library of Congress. If you can find it, I have probably read it. I broadened that study to include cults, black magic, and cannibalism worldwide. Before it was over, I made thousands of photos and maybe a hundred hours of video. I started a book called Mother River, choosing that working title because many of the Aghoris that I talked to called the Ganges River "Ganga Ma," or Mother Ganga. Despite my travels in approximately 65 countries (most of it unrelated to this research), and my long war slogs in Iraq and Afghanistan, my days and nights tracking the cannibals remain the most unbelievable and incredible journey that I have ever experienced. But then I got "dragged" into the wars and so most people who know me think that I am just a war correspondent with an increasingly bad attitude. I never finished Mother River, but I knew that if I survived the wars that I would one day return to the manuscript. And so even now, every day, through Google Net Alerts, I read stories of Aghoris, cannibals, human sacrifice and black magic. Believe it or not, it happens around the world constantly. And so when these latest cases popped up in Miami and Montreal, I just read the stories and I moved on. They sound like your normal psycho-cannibals. Nothing more, and nothing special, unless you are a victim. Today, there is wild and nutty speculation about a zombie apocalypse, or about mass cannibal hysteria unfolding. Psychologists and cops and everyone else has opinions. Most are off-base. The possibility of copy-cat cannibals is real, of course. My opinion on the zombie apocalypse: go to bed and pull the covers over your head if it disturbs you. Don't sweat it. Of course, I could be wrong. I wrote this short article for a magazine during a break from the wars: http://www.michaelyon-online.com/zombie-apocalypse-hysteria.htm
In this 2002 essay by Lee Harris of the Hoover Institute is a clear presentation of what is motivating all the chaos, turmoil, bloodshed, misery and economic hardship in the world today. The same voices of reason have been sounding the alarm for years that the sheeple have been studiously choosing to ignore.. Yesterday I tried to have a conversation with a co-worker about where our community is headed and she replied; " I never pay any attention to that stuff until it affects me personally." My reply was; So you don't think the higher cost of everything you buy is affecting you personally? When will you worry, when the little money you have won't buy anything you need? Her reply; "Yeah, basically."
"A SPECTER HAUNTS the world, and that specter is America. This is not the America discoverable in the pages of a world atlas, but a mythical America that is the target of the new form of anti-Americanism that Salman Rushdie, writing in the Guardian (February 6, 2002), says “is presently taking the world by storm” and that forms the subject of a Washington Post essay by Martin Kettle significantly entitled “U.S. Bashing: It’s All The Rage In Europe” (January 7, 2002). It is an America that Anatol Lieven assures us, in a recent article in the London Review of Books, is nothing less than “a menace to itself and to mankind” and that Noam Chomsky has repeatedly characterized as the world’s major terrorist state. But above all it is the America that is responsible for the evils of the rest of the world. As Dario Fo, the winner of the 1997 Nobel Prize for literature, put it in a notorious post-September 11 email subsequently quoted in the New York Times (September 22, 2001): “The great speculators [of American capitalism] wallow in an economy that every years kills tens of millions of people with poverty [in the Third World] — so what is 20,000 dead in New York? Regardless of who carried out the massacre [of 9-11], this violence is the legitimate daughter of the culture of violence, hunger and inhumane exploitation.” http://www.hoover.org/publications/policy-review/article/6615

Don’t know which creditor will come to the US after the collapse, maybe China, maybe Germany, under the UN mantle to “Help” us but I do know I don’t need their help. It doesn’t really matter who, they will be invaders of the sovereign US. I did not do anything to create the chaos that’s coming except, serve my country during a time of war, work hard , pay taxes and try to save for my retirement so that I would not burden anyone. Guess what? Our creditor/helpers will get the same welcome as the people who did cause our problems and were a burden to the working taxpayers.
