The 25 Best Blogs Now

This is my list of the 25 most important blogs to follow right now, right now meaning in these times. These blogs are leading the charge against Obamacare, runaway government power grabs, entrenched politicians who care nothing about the Constitution, those who would take our guns, those who would impoverish us all in the name of fighting climate change, radical race baiters, and radical Feminists, and yes, the Islamization movement that would have us bow to Sharia Law. In short these are the 25 best blogs to read if you love America, our Constitution, and liberty! 

No, I did not include this blog, although I think it is right up there with those I did list.

As an aside, ALL the blogs on my blogroll rock, and deserve special mention for fighting for our founding principles, so no offense at all is intended to those not listed here. WE appreciate all they do

Our schools as re-education camps

I am one who believes that history, actual history, as it happened is not taught in our schools. I also believe that not enough attention is given to the founding of the nation. I also believe, and have for years, that the goal of government schools is not so much education as indoctrination. Moonbattery has another example that shows me, to be correct

Liberals like the idea of a “living Constitution” — that is, a Constitution that says whatever they want it to say at the moment. Here is what the Second Amendment says:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Here is what advocates of statist tyranny want it to say:

falsified-2nd-amendment

Horrifyingly, the falsified version above was taken from United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement Examination. From Amazon:

This text is designed for a one-semester or one-year United States history course for students preparing to take the AP U.S. History Exam. Teachers can assign the book as the course textbook or as a supplement to a college-level textbook.

Looking over the picture, I saw the butchering of the First Amendment too, adding the “separation of church and state” which is NOT in the Bill of Rights. God only knows how many other falsehoods are in that book.

Just another reason to either home school your kids, or to at least talk to your kids about history.  As much as we tout education in America, we forget that the goal of education should be to impart knowledge, not propaganda. 

The Left’s obsession with equality strikes again

Moonbattery has the scoop

From Los Angeles:

One of the largest public charter high schools in the nation allows a boy who identifies as female to use the girls locker room and bathrooms — despite protests from a female student who says she feels uncomfortable and vulnerable by his presence.

What’s more, the female student — who just finished her sophomore year at the Los Angeles-based Granada Hills Charter High School — claims the boy in question harassed her, touched her hair, stared strangely at her, and also peeked at girls over the stalls while they used the toilet.

“It’s amazing to me that a public school who is responsible to protect the rights of all students will blatantly ignore the Constitutional right to privacy of young female students within the locker rooms and restrooms of the school,” Robert Tyler, the girl’s attorney, told The College Fix.

That’s what they get for being normal. Political correctness dictates that normal people don’t deserve rights, because they are oppressors of the sacred castes, prominent among which are perverts.

It will get worse before it gets better in the Land of Fruits and Nuts.

The California Assembly (same as House of Representatives in most states) passed Assembly Bill 1266 by a 46-25 vote. …

AB 1266 states that public schools cannot discriminate in any way concerning the sex of the student.

Sounds nice, since we all know that to “discriminate” is the ultimate sin. But if you swallow that, you have to swallow this:

Section 221.5 of the Education Code is amended to read: …

A pupil shall be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records.

The Left always seems to insist that the one that is different be accommodated, no matter how it inconveniences the vast majority. 

 

Pickles cause Offendeditis outbreak

Via Moonbattery

One advantage moonbats have is that they need not worry about being subjected to parody — not because most comedians are obedient liberal establishment lapdogs, but because it is impossible to parody a reality like this:

A food company has changed the name of its popular Cains Kosher Dill Midgets after an online campaign by the mom of a girl born with dwarfism.

Chelley Martinka, whose 10-month-old baby daughter Adelaide has the condition, was incensed after seeing the name on jars at her local supermarket in Cranston, R.I.

Wait, this woman has just now discovered pickles called midgets? Has she ever been to a grocery store before? It seems far-fetched that she just now uncovered this knowledge. Further, why would a company cave in to this? Certainly 99% of the people would think this woman’s actions are asinine. Have we really become, as a society this gutless? This hyper sensitive? This wimpy and soft? These companies that cave in need to understand something. They are only empowering the malcontents of the world by such idiotic actions.

 

Team Obama, a study in backwardsness

Case in point? Defenders of the Constitution and other bitter clingers are now the “enemy”.

To make it easy, it seems that if you revere the Founders, the Constitution, your Christian faith, your right to keep and dear arms, or if you think you are entitled to keep most of what you make and that the government has a duty to be fiscally responsible, then you are a danger to ObamAmerica

You can expect Obamacre to be a lot like Obamanomics

That is to say, you can expect it to be worse than anyone ever expected. Moonbattery has the bleak preview. All your medical records belong to us now

Britain gives us another preview of life in a country where government has seized control of the healthcare sector:

GPs [general practitioners] are to be forced to hand over confidential records on all their patients’ drinking habits, waist sizes and illnesses.

The files will be stored in a giant information bank that privacy campaigners say represents the ‘biggest data grab in NHS history’.

They warned the move would end patient confidentiality and hand personal information to third parties.

The data includes weight, cholesterol levels, body mass index, pulse rate, family health history, alcohol consumption and smoking status.

Healthcare is a limited commodity. If it is not to be allocated by price in the free market, but rather be provided by the government, it must be rationed. Knowing who has been smoking, drinking, eating too much, et cetera will be helpful to bureauweenies in deciding who gets healthcare and who does not.

GPs will be required to send monthly updates on their patients to a central database run by the NHS’s Health and Social Care Information Centre.

I am sure many are shaking their heads reading this. They are likely saying “here he goes again with that death panel stuff.” Well, sorry, but that is reality folks. At some point, it will come down to that, and the bigger the government role the more likely it will be a government decision who gets what care. Of course, many folks only hear one word when universal health care is discussed. That word is “free”. Boy, how surprised are they going to be one day when they realize the cost of that ” free” health care.

Update! The Other McCain has some thoughts on the unexpected cost of the greatest lie ever

Everything Democrats say is a lie. Remember what they promisedObamaCare would do, now that we see what it actually does:

Remember when they said it would actually save money for the federal government? Remember when they said nobody would lose their current insurance? Lies, lies, all lies. The Democratic Party is so deliberately dishonest that no decent person would ever vote for any Democrat.

How true, the Democratic Party has devolved into the Lying Party. I often ask how anyone can support an ideology that requires complete dishonesty. Seriously, if you are still a Democrat, then you either like being lied to, enjoy living in complete ignorance, or support the Neo-Marxist direction of the Democrats. So, which is it?

This guy is the kind of person we should put in Congress!

Kudos are due to a countermoonbat landlord in Colorado Springs:

John Obringer sent out a letter to his tenants at the Casa Adobe Apartments on Wednesday. The letter was addressing cutbacks on staff and maintenance issues.

“Due to the stupidity of the U.S. electorate, the Obama-administration’s continued assault on small business is resulting in increased taxes, regulations and mandates that are forcing the management company (B&J Enterprises, Inc.) for Casa Adobe Apartments to modify its operation to survive. This has resulted in layoffs, work-time reductions and decreased pay for workers. Consequently, the business hours are now Monday and Tuesday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Please plan accordingly … We are working hard to maintain the field, cleaning and maintenance personnel in place without raising rents, but that too is inevitable due to the upcoming inflation and market forces,” writes Obringer.

“If you have any questions, comments or criticisms, please call me. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and Happy Holidays to you and yours,” continues Obringer.

Then he added, “BTW: If you voted “Democrat” on Nov. 6, please notify me ASAP so I can raise your rent first to help pay for what you asked for.”

This is what we need, people who speak the unvarnished truth. Not politicians who will say whatever it takes to get elected.

 

Moonbattery: It is the regs you morons!

Wanna cut spending? Shrink government, which would cut spending even more? Wanna increase jobs, which would increase revenues, and cut spending even further? The get rid of the crushing regulations President Marx Obama has imposed!

Karl Marx (1818-1883)

We are frequently told that there is no way Big Government can cut spending, so we must endlessly increase confiscatory taxation on “the rich.” In reality, saving $46 billion per year while improving the quality of our lives would be a simple as repealing the major new regulations Obama has inflicted:

The war on Christianity is all too real

People in Great Britain are now forced to fight for a very basic right. The right to wear a cross

Imagine how awful it will be for any Christians who fail to escape the rotting remnants of Britain after Muslims have achieved the majority if it’s this bad already:

Britain’s Conservative [sic]-led government plans to argue in a European Court of Human Rights case that employers are entitled to ban the visible wearing of crosses at work because displaying the symbol is not a recognized “requirement” of the Christian faith. …

At the center of the applicants’ case is Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which states, “Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief, in worship, teaching, practice and observance.”

Moonbattery also has the story of the origin of this fight

The issue has been brought to a head in part by Nadia Eweida:

Eweida, a Coptic Christian and British Airways staffer at Heathrow Airport, was told in 2006 to remove or cover up a small cross she wears around her neck. She refused and was sent home on unpaid leave. Eweida noted that colleagues of other religions, including Muslims and Sikhs, were allowed to wear religious items such as hijabs, turbans and religious bracelets.

So, how long? How long until this fight comes to America? Folks it is a fight that Christians, or anyone that respects basic human rights does not want. But, we have little choice, we must fight this. And even if you are a non-believer, or of a different faith, do not think this fight foes not hold dire implications for you.

Who has always said the Left HATES the right to self-defense?

Oh yeah, it was me! And this story, Via Moonbattery backs me up

After his roommate and his girlfriend were robbed by armed men in ski masks, Benjamin Portman of Washington, DC became sufficiently alarmed to attend a community meeting on skyrocketing local violence. There he asked why bureaurats make it all but impossible for law-abiding citizens to defend themselves by exercising the Second Amendment.

Paul Quander, the District’s deputy mayor for public safety and justice, responded that crime victims should give the criminals what they want. Mr. Portman protested, saying, “But how do you know you’re going live and survive? You’re completely at their mercy.”

Mr. Quander thinks victimhood is preferable to self-defense. “The problem is, if you are armed, it escalates the situation,” Mr. Quander told residents. “It is much better, in my opinion, to be scared, to be frightened, and even if you have to be, to be injured, but to walk away and survive. You’ll heal, and you can replace whatever was taken away.”

Or at least, if they choose not to kill you for kicks you’ll survive. The God-given right of self-defense never comes into it from the statist point of view.

Leftists see people as cattle,incapable of doing anything for themselves. The fondest desire of Leftists is for us all to be completely reliant upon government, big Leftist government of course, for EVERYTHING. and that includes protection. The Leftist has no use at all for individuals defending themselves. That sets a bad example for the rest of the “cattle” you see.

Moonbattery also highlights another story that points out how armed citizens save lives. I heard of this on the drive home last night.Oddly enough, the report from the media gave not one mention of an ARMED doctor helping to save lives

A Colorado doctor with a concealed-weapon permit said he grabbed his gun and guarded an exit at a medical building as dozens of people fled from a gunman who had taken two hostages.

Authorities in Colorado Springs said the hostages were released before police shot and fatally wounded the gunman Tuesday. No one else was hurt.

Gee,why would the media leave out the armed citizen helping to save lives? HMMMM

 

The newest threat to Western Civilization? Fruit Juice~!

Via Moonbattery, one of our Blogs of the Month for March

soon the hysterical Food Nazis won’t even let them drink juice:

Many young children — particularly those in low-income households — drink too much juice, according to a new survey.

More than a third of parents surveyed, and about half of parents with a yearly household income of less than $30,000, reported their 1- to 5-year-olds drink two or more cups of juice on a typical day.

That’s twice the amount recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), which advises kids under age 6 drink just one serving of juice per day.

Too much juice puts kids at risk for health conditions such as childhood obesity and early tooth decay, the researchers said.

Good Grief, so now even 100% juice is bad for kids? If this is true then the fruit that juice comes from must be bad too right? Quick parents,take that apple or orange away from your child now! Throw out those grapes,  peaches, mangoes, and pineapple too!

 

Romney’s Love of Cap and Trade?

Matt exposes some less than encouraging facts about Mitt

As all of you know, I am NOT a fan of Mitt Romney.  I believe him to be a RINO of the highest lowest order.  However, if any of you out there are still wavering, here is yet another game changer-he apparently worked with now Science Czar John Holdren to implement more stringent environmental regulations in Massachusetts.  If you recall, we covered Mr. Holdren rather extensively in the past, so we know that he has been rather radical in his support of de-development and forced population control. The Lonely Conservative has the coverage…

Thanks to Moonbattery for digging this up.

This brings us onto still more common ground between Barack Obama and Willard “Mitt” Romney. From an official memo released by Willard’s office when he was Governor of Taxachusetts, announcing “Strict New Clean Air Regulations“:

Governor Mitt Romney today announced that Massachusetts will take another major step in meeting its commitment to protecting air quality when strict state limitations on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from power plants take effect on January 1, 2006. …

Massachusetts is the first and only state to set CO2 emissions limits on power plants. The limits, which target the six largest and oldest power plants in the state, are the toughest in the nation…

In addition to reaffirming existing stringent CO2 limits, the draft regulations announced today, which will be filed next week, contain protections against excessive price increases for businesses and consumers. They allow power generation companies to implement CO2 reductions at their own facilities or fund other reduction projects off-site through a greenhouse gas offset and credits program.

One of the things that has driven me nuts is that while Perry has been raked over the coals over his Conservative creds, Romney’s record has been largely let alone. I fail to grasp why frankly.

Being MSNBS’s top-rated talk host is kinda like

Being the smartest kid on the short bus isn’t it? The Left is wailing and gnashing their teeth over Olby’s departure. Donald Douglas notes, and mocks their whining over MSNBS parting ways with their “top-rated host because, in their view, he dared to speak the truth.

Yeah, Keith Olbermann was out at MSNBC because he wanted more money, that damned capitalist pig. All those years of progressive rants topped off with pure hypocrisy. It’s too good, really.

But by the looks of the progressive reaction across the web, Obermann’s departure was the biggest conspiracy since “Bush died and people lied.” (More on that here.) Moonbattery has the roundup of heads exploding on Twitter. But pea-brained progressive Green Eagle ups the ante, hilariously,Goodbye Keith“:

HA! He left over money! How could Olby, a good Progressive depart over greed? That must chafe the Lefties. But, what i really enjoy is hearing that they are crying CONSPIRACY! Because EVERYTHING is about stifling their dissent, at least in their minds!

Well, here’s the reality of press suppression in this country: MSNBC just fired their top-rated broadcaster. And make no mistake about the reason: it was solely because he dared to tell the truth in public. And if you think Rachel, Ed Schultz, and that clown O’Donnell don’t get the message, you really are fooling yourself. If Keith is expendable they all are. It is apparently tolerable for CNN to employ the right wing hatemonger and professional liar Erick Erickson. But being a moderate liberal is too much for this country to allow anyone a public voice.

But of course, whoever owns these networks has the right to fire anyone they want, right? And thanks to the sainted Ronald Reagan, no one owns the media anymore but the rich. How many times have you heard decisions like this justified by claims that “it’s just business” or that it’s all about profits and not about the person’s political views at all? Well, I’d like someone to explain to me how it’s all about profits when a network fires its most highly rated star.

This is not a minor moment in our history as a nation. It is a major legitimation of the right to stifle dissent. It is a giant step toward fascism; and I am not using the term figuratively. When it becomes acceptable for the rich and powerful to stifle dissent, totalitarianism is on the way.

Sorry but I love this, the Leftnuts carping about their imagined WAR ON LEFTIST DISSENT! That is rich coming from people pushing for The Fairness Doctrine isn’t it? That is rich coming from the Left, who are currently doing their damnedest to blame “Right-Wing Vitriol” for the Tuscon shootings. This is rich coming from the same types of cretins who pushed speech codes on college campuses. And this is ESPECIALLY odd coming from those who often celebrate Castro and Chavez, and who likely own an assortment of Che T-shirts!
