Teddy Roosevelt On Immigration

September 2, 2015


“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

― Theodore Roosevelt
 

Financial Times Calls For Abolishing Cash

September 1, 2015


The Financial Times has published an anonymous article which calls for the abolition of cash in order to give central banks and governments more power.

Entitled "The case for retiring another barbarous relic", the article laments the fact that people are stockpiling cash in anticipation of another economic collapse, a factor which is causing, “a lot of distortion to the economic system.”

“The existence of cash — a bearer instrument with a zero interest rate — limits central banks’ ability to stimulate a depressed economy. The worry is that people will change their deposits for cash if a central bank moves rates into negative territory,” states the article.



Complaining that cash cannot be tracked and traced, the writer argues that its abolition would, “make life easier for a government set on squeezing the informal economy out of existence.”

Abolishing cash would also give governments more power to lift taxes directly from people’s bank accounts, the author argues, noting how “Value added tax, for example, could be automatically levied — and reimbursed — in real time on transactions between liable bank accounts.”

The writer also calls for punishing people who use cash by making users “pay for the privilege of anonymity” so they will, “remain affected by monetary policy.” Dated bank notes would lose their value over time, while people would also be charged by banks for swapping electronic reserves for physical cash and vice versa.

The article echoes an argument made by Kenneth Rogoff, former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund, who has called for high denomination banks notes such as the €100 and €500 notes to be phased out of existence.

Rogoff attended a meeting in London earlier this year where he met representatives from the Federal Reserve, the ECB as well as participants from the Swiss and Danish central banks. The issue of banning cash was at the forefront of the agenda.
 

'Mega' Agenda 21 Resurrected With Pope's Help

September 1, 2015


As the choppy waters of September 2015 move ashore, all eyes will be on Pope Francis’ visit to the United States, jittery stock markets and signs in the heavens.

Francis is expected to enthusiastically endorse a new U.N. document that promises to wipe out poverty by 2030 by reordering the world economy along the lines of socialist principles. The document, titled “Transforming Our World: 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,” also seeks to “strengthen universal peace” and usher in a new era of shared prosperity.

The pope’s visit marks just one in a series of historic and potentially prophetic events during the month of September.



    - The climax of the biblical Sabbath year known as the Shemitah occurs on Sept. 13, along with a partial solar eclipse.

    - The largest-ever military exercise, Jade Helm, concludes Sept. 15, while the world’s most ambitious scientific experiment is taking place all month at the CERN Large Hadron Collider near Geneva, Switzerland.

    - Congress is supposed to vote on Obama’s Iran nuclear deal by by Sept. 17.

    - The 266th pope arrives on Sept. 23, the 266th day of the year, which also happens to be Yom Kippur or the Jewish Day of Atonement, and the beginning of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, also known as “the Feast of the Sacrifice.”

    - Francis will be the first pope to address a joint session of Congress Sept. 24.

    - Francis delivers the keynote speech Sept. 25 to the U.N. sustainability summit in New York.

    - On Sept. 28, the fourth and last of the “blood moons” takes place on the biblical Feast of Tabernacles.



Short of a global economic collapse, the U.N.’s rollout of its new agenda for sustainable development could have the most far-reaching impact of all these events.

“Basically they are rebooting Agenda 21,” said Tom DeWeese, president and founder of the American Policy Center, and they are calling on the world’s most visible religious leader to promote the agenda.

The U.N. 2030 Agenda includes 17 goals that aim for the re-ordering of all human activity.

Despite the failure of Agenda 21 to “end poverty,” the pope and the U.N. will ask 193 national leaders to go home from the Sept. 25-27 summit and promote the new U.N. plan to usher in its planned global utopia, DeWeese said.

“These same NGOs (who failed to end poverty through Agenda 21) are headed to New York City to announce their new 2030 Agenda to ‘Transform the World,’” he said. “The preamble to the document says ‘All countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan.’”

But unlike 1992, when nobody was paying much attention as Agenda 21 was rolled out at the U.N. Earth Summit in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, all eyes will be on the pope as he sings the praises of the new U.N. plan on Sept. 25.



But what is “sustainable development?”

Patrick Wood, an economist and author of “Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation," says it’s clear the U.N. and its supporters see sustainable development as more than just the way to a cleaner environment. They see it as the vehicle for creating a long-sought new international economic order, or “New World Order.”

Wood says their goal is the overthrow of capitalism and the free enterprise system on a global scale.

University tells staff and students to stop using ‘he’ and ‘she’

August 30, 2015


This is just insane.



From the Daily Mail:

The University of Tennessee has told its staff and students to stop calling each other ‘he’, ‘she’, ‘him’ and ‘her’ – and to start referring to one another with terms like ‘xe’, ‘zir’ and ‘xyr’ instead.

The Knoxville branch of the public university, which has 27,400 students, sent a memo round to its members filled with unusual new parts of speech to avoid referring to anybody’s gender.

According to a gay rights official at the university, the new language regime will make the university ‘welcoming and inclusive’ and stop people feeling ‘marginalized’.

The university published the instructions on its website on Wednesday after they were emailed to every member of the university by the institution’s Vice Chancellor for Diversity.

Officials have since insisted the the guidelines are not compulsory and that they do not want to ‘dictate speech’.

Donna Braquet, who runs the university’s Pride Center, wrote the guidelines, which are accompanied with a long table demonstrating how to replace the regular parts of speech.

She also advises staff members not to call roll in class, and to instead greet every student by asking them to announce their name and pronoun of preference.

Instead of ‘he’ and ‘she’, Braquet suggests four alternatives.

One is the commonplace strategy of using ‘they’, ‘them’ and ‘their’ for individuals rather than groups.

She also suggests ‘ze’ and ‘xe’ – both pronounced ‘zhee’ – and a variety of secondary conjugations to be used for anybody who rejects the traditional gender binary.

Barquet argues that if everybody follows her instructions, campus will become ‘more inclusive’.
 

Former Ivy League Professor: Vester Flanagan Shooting Spree Caused by “Love Deficit”

August 29, 2015


We were all made very much aware that Dylann Roof’s shooting spree was racially motivated. How to spin the murders committed by Vester Flanagan — who clearly stated for the record that his motive was to get revenge against whites — as anything different? For a propaganda job that difficult, an Ivy League intellect is required. CNN calls upon former Harvard and Princeton professor Cornel West:

    “The problem is we live in a society where people don’t give or get enough love. They don’t give or get enough justice. They don’t give or get enough community. When you’re isolated and insulated, that rage bubbles up. …

    “Justice is what love looks like in public. When you have a love deficit, you have a justice deficit. And the question becomes, how do you make things accountable? I‘m very much in favor of tight gun control.”

There you have it. The killings resulted from a “love deficit” that can be made right by denying us our constitutional rights, and placing us even more at the mercy of maniacs like Flanagan, who could have just as effectively done his killing with a knife or a car.

The professor also managed to drag in the concepts of “white privilege” and “homophobia” while justifying Flanagan’s “rage” and denying that the killer was mentally ill.
 

Muslims Buying Up Christian Churches Across U.S.

August 29, 2015


Muslims are exponentially buying up Christian churches and converting them into mosques, which indicates Islam could be a dominant U.S. religion by the 22nd century.

The former Catholic Church of St. John in St. Paul, Minn., which operated from 1886 to 2013, is now known as the Darul-Uloom Islamic Center and experiences heavy attendance every week.

Similarly, the former Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Syracuse, N.Y., has been transformed into Masjid Isa Ibn Maryam.

“Even as the crosses were cut from the church spires on the outside, and 10,000 crosses were painted over on the inside, the new owners of 501 Park St. tried to leave what they could, and reuse what they couldn’t,” Marnie Elsenstadt with Syracuse.com reported. “The wood from the pews has been repurposed to fix the floor, which is where Muslims sit to pray.”

“Painters worked to make the minbar, the pulpit where the imam stands, blend in with the stonework.”



And two Baptist churches in Louisville, Ky., have been turned into mosques.

The demand for mosques is being driven primarily by refugees from Syria, Somalia and other countries where Islam is a dominant religion.

And it’s not just the demand driving this religious transformation; Christian churches are going bankrupt as Americans become increasingly secular, meaning it’s a buyer’s market for newly-arrived Muslims looking for church property to call home.



 

141 U.S. Counties Have More Registered Voters Than People

August 29, 2015


A public interest law firm is threatening to bring lawsuits against more than 100 counties across the United States that appear to have more registered voters than living residents.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), a law firm dedicated to election integrity based in Indiana, recently sent statutory notice letters to election officials in 141 counties putting them on notice of their discoveries. The group says if action is not taken to correct the questionable voter rolls, they will bring lawsuits against every single county on the list.

“Corrupted voter rolls provide the perfect environment for voter fraud,” said J. Christian Adams, president and general counsel of PILF. “Close elections tainted by voter fraud turned control of the United States Senate in 2009. Too much is at stake in 2016 to allow that to happen again.”

The statutory notice letters argue the counties are violating the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) and urge them to correct the issue, claiming their voter rolls contain a substantially high amount of ineligible voters. The group used federally produced data to come to their conclusions.

Cowbells to be banned after activists say they are cruel

August 27, 2015


Animal rights activists in Germany are calling for an end to cowbells because they say they are cruel.

Cow bells tinkling across Alpine pastures is a common feature in the south of the country and farmers say essential for keeping track of their herds.

But the German Animal Protection Federation claims the bells send the animals 'mad' and that GPS trackers around their necks are more effective in the modern age.



The Bavarian government, farmers and tourist board have vowed to fight the move.

'I don't believe that the bells annoy the cows – neither because of their weight nor their sound,' state agriculture minister Helmut Brunner said.

Brunner was backed up by the chairman of the Allgäu Alps Farmers' Association Franz Hange, who called the activists' demands 'total nonsense.'

'This is a tradition in the Allgäu and part of our identity,' Franz Hange, who defended the wearing of cowbells.
