Here Comes The Judge

FOX News Senior judicial analyst, Judge Andrew Napolitano and I are buds. If you haven't heard, he and I chat weekly in "Judging Freedom", 20 minutes of revealing (and usually entertaining) conversation about current events that impact Freedom and, by extension, our personal, daily lives.

I've often told the Judge, on and off the air, he should come out swinging harder than he is seen on FOX, even harder than he has done in "Judging Freedom". Whether my exhortations have had any effect is up to him to say! Regardless, his latest is the first I've seen him present without the gloves on.

  Last week, we learned how deep the disrespect for the Constitution runs in the government and how tortured is the logic that underlies it. In a little-noted speech at Washington and Lee School of Law, Gen. Michael Hayden, the former director of both the CIA and the NSA, told us. In a remarkable public confession, he revealed that somehow he received from some source he did not name the authority to reinterpret the Fourth Amendment's protection of privacy so as to obliterate it. He argued that the line between privacy and unbridled government surveillance is a flexible and movable one, and that he — as the head of the NSA — could move it.

Thought for the Day #19

It’s unfortunate Hart and others feel compelled to ever sharpen the point on their heads with modifiers like “William F. Buckley, Jr conservatives”, “Goldwater conservatives”, “Born-again conservatives”, “un-re-constitutional, fat-free, lo-cal, no sodium, Natural Blond conservatives”.  At least Democrats are Liberals are Progressives – and that’s about it. When did any “D” further define himself as a “Karl Marx liberal” or a “Vladimir Lenin liberal” or a “ABCNBCCBSCNNNPR liberal?

The Culture of (Aggressive) Ignorance


The kabuki theater that passes for governance in Washington D.C. reveals the profound level of ignorance shrouding this Empire of Debt in its prolonged death throes. Ignorance of facts; ignorance of math; ignorance of history; ignorance of reality; and ignorance of how ignorant we’ve become as a nation, have set us up for an epic fall. It’s almost as if we relish wallowing in our ignorance like a fat lazy sow in a mud hole. The lords of the manor are able to retain their power, control and huge ill-gotten riches because the government educated serfs are too ignorant to recognize the self-evident contradictions in the propaganda they are inundated with by state controlled media on a daily basis.

A Frank Reply

A friend and fan of Talk radio sent a puff piece about a syndicated colleague whom I'vc known casually for a few years. The article/interview made him out to be quite "larger" (as to influence) than he actually is, at least as far as the pecking order in this biz. Both the writer and the talk host did not shy away from fostering the notion that both he and Talk radio were the tails wagging the dogs of politics and public opinion. With that in mind, I wrote back..

He was set up to one side of me when we were broadcasting from at CPAC a few years back.
Nice puff piece - but when it comes to "saving the republic" or the restoration of Liberty, he is just as irrelevant as any other "pundit".

Since "retirement", I've come to see just how ludicrous it all is. We talk, post, opine, write and make idols out of those who say with a microphone and transmitter what we wanna hear.But when looking for measurable, permanent, positive results, the best you get is a handful of water. To believe somebody yakking on a radio or tv is actually going to cause the Leviathan to change its ways or the "other side" to have an epiphany is ludicrous.

Rush is a rock star. But aside from being in the right place at precisely the right time - which did not come about thru his alleged brilliance or clever "strategery" - he has managed to get to the top of the talk radio food chain and $20M/yr. But, while he has said (or most often has had ghost written) some scintillating things, what has he changed, stopped, reversed in America's  inexorable slide to tyranny? 

Zero.

Has Talk Radio raised the consciousness and awareness of Average Man. Sure. But every "accomplishment" (Republican control of WH and Congress, the rise of the Tea Party - now co-opted by ' the Establishment' - and maybe the defeat of an odious politician or two) has been subsequently squandered by other "forces" impervious to the on-air rantings of every radio/tv yapper to clutter up a studio. Ever. Myself included.

Talk radio, like political campaigns, are the "circuses" part of "bread and...". They are distractions, popular deceptions that help us delude ourselves into thinking "something GOOD is about to happen"..."THIS time we'll show 'em!"..."THIS time we'll get it right - and if they don't vote to -blah blah blah, we'll vote 'em out! And  the NEXT time.....". This is Einstein's definition of insanity writ large. In living color. And Surround Sound.

Tune in tomorrow for the next exciting episode....just like the last exciting episode.

Oh - and send money. This crap ain't cheap.

And so it goes.....

Lies and Ignorance

When will they ever learn...?
When will they ever learn?
- Pete Seeger
(Minor edit: When will WE ever learn.....?

If Americans were honest with themselves they would acknowledge that the Republic is no more. We now live in a police state. If we do not recognize and resist this development, freedom and prosperity for all Americans will continue to deteriorate. All liberties in America today are under siege.
It didn’t happen overnight. It took many years of neglect for our liberties to be given away so casually for a promise of security from the politicians. The tragic part is that the more security was promised — physical and economic — the less liberty was protected.
With cradle-to-grave welfare protecting all citizens from any mistakes and a perpetual global war on terrorism, which a majority of Americans were convinced was absolutely necessary for our survival, our security and prosperity has been sacrificed.
It was all based on lies and ignorance. Many came to believe that their best interests were served by giving up a little freedom now and then to gain a better life.
