The Unthinkable

It seems that President Obama is creating the exact circumstances required to push Israel into a pre-emptive nuclear strike of Iran. If that sounds totally over-the-top to you then I suggest you read this article first, and then check out the credentials of its author.


Thinking About the Unthinkable: An Israel-Iran Nuclear War

The signing of a Munich-class agreement with Iran that hands it more than it ever hoped to pull off represents a shocking, craven American capitulation to an apocalyptic crazy state: a North Korea with oil. Nothing in Western history remotely approaches it, not even Neville Chamberlain’s storied appeasement of another antisemitic negotiating partner.

Why? Because Israel has no choice, given the radical new alignment against it that now includes the US, given reported Obama threats in 2014 to shoot down Israeli attack planes, his disclosure of Israel’s nuclear secrets and its Central Asian strike-force recovery bases, and above all his agreement to help Iran protect its enrichment facilities from terrorists and cyberwarfare – i.e., from the very special-operations and cyber forces that Israel would use in desperate attempts to halt Iran’s bomb. Thus Israel is being forced, more rapidly and irreversibly than we appreciate, into a bet-the-nation decision where it has only one forceful, game-changing choice — early nuclear pre-emption – to wrest back control of its survival and to dictate the aftermath of such a survival strike.

Whether the author is totally accurate in his predictions, this clearly illustrates how dangerous it is to have such an ideologically motivated Leftist like Obama in charge.

The Negro Project

Margaret Sanger
Margaret Sanger

Margaret Sanger is the patron saint of Planned Parenthood and one of Hilary Clinton’s heroines over whom Ms. Clinton has gushed praise for decades.

From Wikipedia:

From 1939 to 1942 Sanger was an honorary delegate of the Birth Control Federation of America, which included a supervisory role—alongside Mary Lasker and Clarence Gamble—in the Negro Project, an effort to deliver birth control to poor black people. Sanger wanted the Negro Project to include black ministers in leadership roles, but other supervisors did not. To emphasize the benefits of involving black community leaders, she wrote to Gamble “we do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” While New York University’s Margaret Sanger Papers Project, argues that in writing that letter, “Sanger recognized that elements within the black community might mistakenly associate the Negro Project with racist sterilization campaigns in the Jim Crow South;” Angela Davis uses the quote to support claims that Sanger intended to exterminate the black population.

An article in WorldNetDaily:

Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood in 1916 and idolized by feminists today, was a leader in the Eugenics movement, speaking and writing extensively on the urgency of “exterminating inferior races.”

Sanger focused particularly on blacks, saying, “Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated.” Sanger also wrote, “Slaves, Latin, and Hebrew immigrants are…a deadweight of human waste. Blacks, soldiers, and Jews are a menace to the (human) race.

Black Genocide org:

The aim of the program was to restrict–many believe exterminate–the black population. Under the pretense of “better health” and “family planning,” Sanger cleverly implemented her plan. What’s more shocking is Sanger’s beguilement of black America’s créme de la créme–those prominent, well educated and well-to-do–into executing her scheme. Some within the black elite saw birth control as a means to attain economic empowerment, elevate the race and garner the respect of whites.

The Negro Project has had lasting repercussions in the black community: “We have become victims of genocide by our own hands,” cried Hunter at the “Say So” march.

American Life League:

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was an adulteress, racist and bigot, a supporter of Hitler’s Nazi party, and a believer in eugenics – the purification of a particular race of people by selective breeding. Her magazines and journals were filled with writings and articles by well-known eugenicists and members of Hitler’s Third Reich.

Some of the quotes above certainly come from sites that are not friends of the Left. But nothing can, to a rational person, whitewash the racist past of Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood which she founded.

One last quote from Black Genocide:

Minority women constitute only about 13% of the female population (age 15-44) in the United States, but they underwent approximately 36% of the abortions.

According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, black women are more than 5 times as likely as white women to have an abortion.

On average, 1,876 black babies are aborted every day in the United States.

So, do you think maybe it might not be a bad idea write your Congress Critter to add your support for stopping public funding for Planned Parenthood? From some some videos that have been aired lately it sounds like they already have a profitable business in selling body parts from aborted babies.

Hillary Clinton, ” I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision,” said Hillary Rodham Clinton, “I am really in awe of her, there are a lot of lessons we can learn from her life”

” I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision, I am really in awe of her, there are a lot of lessons we can learn from her life” -Hillary Clinton 2009

Leftist and Islamic Policymakers Outlaw the Truth


Very good article on Islam on American Thinker today. Quoting:

“What lies at the heart of Islam is an antipathy towards non-Muslims, as well as a deeply-entrenched duty and commandment from Allah to wage Jihad and eventually subjugate non-Muslims worldwide to Islamic rule in the name of Allah.  Massive street prayer is one form of subjugation conducted only to intimidate and Islamize Western society, to remind non-Muslims who’s really in control. Similarly, forcing non-Muslims in their own countries, in the UK for example, to eat halal slaughtered meat — an utterly inhumane and barbaric Islamic practice, not to mention a multi-billion dollar industry controlled by Muslim Brotherhood organizations that fund jihad worldwide — when only a mere 5% of the UK population is Muslim, and when the Koran specifically exempts its followers from eating halal if it’s not available, is another way to subjugate non-Muslims.”

Supreme Court Disasters

“When any branch of government can exercise powers not authorized by either statutes or the Constitution, “we the people” are no longer free citizens but subjects, and our “public servants” are really our public masters. And America is no longer America. The freedom for which whole generations of Americans have fought and died is gradually but increasingly being taken away from us with smooth and slippery words.”

Supreme Court Disasters,  Thomas Sowell

As usual, Dr. Sowell is right on, cutting through the bullshit to the heart of the matter.

A Lame Duck Country?


Thomas Sowell

Thomas Sowell is one of my favorite columnists. From Wikipedia:

Thomas Sowell (/soʊl/; born June 30, 1930) is an American economist, social theorist, political philosopher and author.

He is currently Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University. Sowell was born in North Carolina, but grew up in Harlem, New York. He dropped out of high school and served in the United States Marine Corps during the Korean War. He received a bachelor’s degree from Harvard University in 1958 and a master’s degree from Columbia University in 1959. In 1968, he earned his Doctorate in Economics from the University of Chicago.

Sowell has served on the faculties of several universities, including Cornell University and University of California, Los Angeles. He has also worked for think tanks such as the Urban Institute. Since 1980, he has worked at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. He writes from a conservative and libertarian perspective, advocating free market economics and has written more than thirty books. He is a National Humanities Medal winner.

I recommend checking out his articles on They are always worth a read and relevant to current events. Today’s article is:

A Lame Duck Country?


The Constitution cannot protect our rights if we do not protect the Constitution. Freedom is not free, and the Constitution is just some words on paper if we do not do anything to those who violate it.


The most important thing the voters can do is vote against anyone who violates the Constitution. When someone who has violated the Constitution repeatedly gets re-elected, then the voters are accomplices in the erosion of protection for their own freedom.

If you read this page, you really ought to read the whole article here.

Another great American once said:

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. -President Ronald Reagan

You Are A Criminal

In the movie “Atlas Shrugged II, The Strike,” the screen adaptation of the book “Atlas Shrugged” by Ayn Rand, one of the villains, Dr. Floyd Ferris, explains things to Hank Rearden who is one of the heroes of the movie:

Dr. Floyd Ferris

Dr. Floyd Ferris

Did you really think we want those laws observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against… We’re after power and we mean it… There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Rearden, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”

In non-fiction article “The Nature of Government” Ayn Rand describes where the United States is headed (and many would say, has arrived):

We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.

She of course was referring to one of the original concepts of the Founders of the United States, the idea that government could only do what it is permitted and an individual could do whatever he or she wanted as long as it was not not prohibited. Indeed that principle has been nearly inverted where government can find a justification for about any action it wants. The President can ignore the laws passed by the Congress or amend them by fiat Executive Order, as for example, as President Obama has repeatedly amended the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka “Obamacare“) for purely partisan political purposes.

Quoting from “How Many Federal Laws Are There?

In an example of a failed attempt to tally up the number of laws on a specific subject area, in 1982 the Justice Department tried to determine the total number of criminal laws. In a project that lasted two years, the Department compiled a list of approximately 3,000 criminal offenses. This effort, headed by Ronald Gainer, a Justice Department official, is considered the most exhaustive attempt to count the number of federal criminal laws. In aWall Street Journal article about this project, “this effort came as part of a long and ultimately failed campaign to persuade Congress to revise the criminal code, which by the 1980s was scattered among 50 titles and 23,000 pages of federal law.” Or as Mr. Gainer characterized this fruitless project: “[y]ou will have died and [been] resurrected three times,” and still not have an answer to this question.

According to the article How many pages are in the Affordable Care Act?:

So… how many “pages” are in the Affordable Care Act? In the actual legislation itself, there are just over 2,400. But the legislation is incomplete with the accompanying regulations, most of which have yet to be published.

Paul Bedard, a journalist with U.S. News, reported in April 2011 that the first set of HHS regulations covered six pages of the actual legislation—but resulted in 429 pages of regulations.

I was curious to see what that would mean for the totality of the health care legislation if I applied a ratio of 71.5:1 to the Affordable Care Act.

The result?

More than 170,000 pages.

No, that’s not a typo. It really is a six figure total. By comparison, the U.S. tax code by my calculations is approximately 13,000 pages.

The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR):

…is the codification of the general and permanent rules and regulations (sometimes called administrative law) published in the Federal Register by the executive departments and agencies of the federal government of the United States. The CFR is divided into 50 titles that represent broad areas subject to federal regulation. … Under the delegation doctrine, federal agencies are authorized to promulgate regulations (rulemaking) by so-called enabling legislation. –Wikipedia

The CFR is comprised of 50 volumes. Under President Obama alone it has increased by over 11,000 pages. In 1975 it took 71,000 pages to publish the CFR. (see this article on

… there is a very high probably that you are a criminal.

It is not humanely possible in many instances to know if you are following the law or not.  Given the sheer volume of Federal law and Federal regulations there is a very high probably that you are a criminal.

See this article Wyoming welder faces $75,000 a day in EPA fines for building pond on his propertyEven if Congress did nothing at all the sprawling bureaucracy will continue to create reams of pages that in effect become law and if you run afoul of any of those laws it will be the government that will have the masses of lawyers to prove you broke the law.

Welcome to the Brave New World.

In a world where the government aims to be your caretaker it will most certainly be  your master. The days of government “by and for the people” are quickly ending. Soon it will the “government by the government for the government.”

If we want something different we have to educate ourselves and put our allegiance to those political movements aimed at small and limited government. I leave it to you to figure out who those are. Just one clue – it is neither the mainline Republicans or Democrats.

Universal Background Checks

Universal background checks for gun sales could be done in a way that many gunowners could support.

Universal background checks for gun sales could be done in a way that many gunowners could support.

Much has been said recently about the desirability of having background checks before people can buy a firearm, either through a licensed dealer or from a private individual. Reasonable people do have valid concerns about firearms falling into the hands of criminals and the mentally insane. But many reasonable people also have valid concerns about government overreach and they have the examples of the U.K. and Australia where mounting regulations, registration, and requirements for firearms purchases eventually led to bans and confiscation.

Is there a way to satisfy both demands? Is there a way to potentially satisfy the rational concern about unfit people legally purchasing firearms and the equally rational concern about government abuse of a Constitutional right “to keep and bear arms”?

There is.

Not all people will be totally satisfied but perhaps a majority can feel that not only are they doing something about gun violence, they are also not giving even more power to government.  That government through the NSA has already shown little respect for individual privacy. That government through the IRS has shown a blatant willingness to inject political favoritism in the denying or delaying tax-exempt status to un-favored Conservative and Tea Party organizations.

So how could we accomplish this and meet both demands of safety and not growing government? How about universal background checks? Create a system where everyone gets a background check whether or not they ever plan to buy a firearm. Encode the result on the driver’s license or state id.

Driver's license with added notation that a person is not disqualified to exercise the 2nd Amendment.

Back of driver’s license with added notation that a person is not disqualified to exercise the 2nd Amendment.

On the front of my Texas driver’s license there is a line that says: “Restrictions A.” If you flip the license over that restriction is explained as “With corrective lenses”.” I have to wear glasses in order to drive a car legally in the state of Texas.

Currently we have the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). This system came from the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993 and has been run by the FBI since 1998. If you attempt to buy a firearm from a dealer with a Federal Firearms License (FFL) that dealer must get permission from NICS to complete the sale. To be in the business of selling firearms you must have an FFL.

The purpose of NICS is to determine if there are any records that indicate an individual is not legally qualified to purchase a firearm, for example, a record of a felony conviction or involuntary commitment to a mental institution. The states are largely responsible for providing information to NICS.

NICS is far from perfect and some people with common names often have to wait several days for approval. However it has worked far better than most critics expected when it was put in place.

My suggestion is that we could streamline and improve NICS so that it could deal with universal checks.  Each time a state DMV issued a driver’s license (or state ID) it would query NICS.  When it issued the license there would be some sort of code on the license that indicated that a person was not legally prohibited from purchasing a firearm.  Obviously that code and status could be easily changed if a person’s status changed, for example, if they were convicted of a felony.

With this system when a person went into a store and wanted to purchase a firearm all they would have to do is show their driver’s license or ID.  There would be no need to query NICS at that point.  That task would have already been taken care of.

By law require that all private individuals selling a firearm go through the step of verifying the status of a potential buyer by examining their driver’s license.  Currently Federal law requires that if you sell a firearm in a private transaction that you can only sell to a person who lives in the same state.  Therefore checking the driver’s license helps you obey this Federal law also.

The vast majority of private citizens have no desire to sell a firearm to a crook or crazy person.  This would give private citizens a very good means to check potential buyers.  If law enforcement were to conduct and publicize periodic sting operations posing as private buyers and arresting people who did not check, then compliance in private sales would most likely be very high.

Would such a system prevent illegal sales to unqualified individuals?  No, it would not. But such a system would satisfy the demand for a background check without expanding current government oversight.  In fact it would lessen government oversight because the government would not be tempted to build a list of potential gun owners from NICS applications.  Under such a universal system the government would have no idea if a NICS request was for a person intending to buy a gun, or just a person who was getting a driver’s license.

One criticism of a code on a person’s driver’s license is that it would be an obvious stigma.  On many occasions you may need to show your driver’s license as identification and an obvious code that said you were an ex-felon or a crazy person might be seen as making people wear a “Scarlet Letter.”

That objection could be easily met.  A simple method would require that the code be on the back of the license so when you identify yourself – other than buying a firearm – that code is not visible.  For additional protection the law could prohibit a person requiring your id for identification from turning over your card and deliberately determining a person’s status other than for an actual firearms purchase. The law could prohibit potential employers from also examining the back of your driver’s license. As a final step people who are morally or philosophically opposed to firearms ownership could opt to not have the code placed on their id (but not decline having the background check done for them).

An exception should be made for police officers though. If for example a person is stopped by police for some violation and found to possess a firearm the police could immediately use the person’s license to determine if they are entitled to own or possess a firearm. This could be a deterrent against people illegally carrying firearms (but don’t be foolish enough to think it would stop hard core criminals and psychopaths).

The NRA could not complain about law abiding citizens being delayed in making a firearms purchase. The problem of false negatives with the current NICS system that often denies a legitimate purchase would be eliminated.

Gun owners, the firearms industry, the NRA, and people who sincerely want to implement sensible checks could all work together and actually get something done. Such a system could definitely tighten up the availability of guns to people who shouldn’t have them while not burdening law abiding citizens with unnecessary or unreasonable delays.


  • Instant ability to purchase a firearm for qualified individuals.
  • Eliminates false positives in current NICS system
  • Universal background checks for private sales.
  • Less temptation for government to build an illegal database of potential gun owners.
  • Instant method for police to determine if a person is entitled to possess a firearm.


  • NICS would have to be adapted to new system.
  • Sensitivity to handling driver licenses or ids to shield a person’s status when identifying themselves.

I think we could live with the disadvantages for the very clear advantages of such a system.
