The Pinocchio in Chief on Gun Violence

The Pinocchio in Chief on Gun Violence yesterday:
 “Now is the time for mourning and for healing. But let’s be clear. At some point, we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. " [source]
Does anybody believe this oligarchic puppet has no recollection of the Breivik murders in gun- banning Norway or the Charlie Hebdo murders in gun-banning France where even the police victims were unarmed?

If your  answer is "No," then you must realize that this shameless ghoul is a liar.

Updated to include this related set of facts that Pinocchio would never bring to light from his Bull*****y Pulpit.

The Simple, In-Your-Face Intent of "Progressives"

Through the looking glass, a century later.

This is how everyone with a lick of sense should read it whenever Progs utter the word



I have now provided my readers and their friends with a few JPEGs with which they may now be as explicit of what Progs really mean when they utter the word

Anyone who can provide me with a better way of doing this, please notify me in comments and I'll add the attributed link to this blog-post as a public service.

Of course all of this is related to this set of increments
Altruistic ==► Casuistic ==► Craven ==► Shameless ==►
Brazen ==► Sneer at US ==► Contempt for US ==► [TBD] 
 For more on how I've been chronicling each subsequent TBD on this blog, try this link.

Silence Often Viewed As Consent

The SSM has not taken notice of Mr. Obama's rare silence on anything on matters such as this headline.

FBI: Law Enforcement Officers Feloniously Killed in Line of Duty Up 89% in 2014


Because the highly paid apparatchiks occupying our news institutions haven't mentioned it, someone ought comment that silence is often viewed as consent.

Why No Grand Jury Before Indictments In Baltimore?

Amendment 5 to the U.S. Constitution
 “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury.”

 Did the WH, not happy with the results of the grand jury in Ferguson MO, send word to Baltimore MD?

'You doan need no stinkin' grand juries.'

Lessons in Humility, No. 1

Allegedly modern (meaning "seeking the best") man frequently derides previous generations as being primitive and, at best, benighted.  Behold.

1,000-year-old onion and garlic eye remedy kills MRSA
 h/t AoSHQ
Scientists recreated a 9th Century Anglo-Saxon remedy using onion, garlic and part of a cow's stomach.

They were "astonished" to find it almost completely wiped out methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, otherwise known as MRSA. 

Their findings will be presented at a national microbiology conference.

The remedy was found in Bald's Leechbook - an old English manuscript containing instructions on various treatments held in the British Library.
...

"But we were absolutely blown away by just how effective the combination of ingredients was," she [Dr Freya Harrison] said.
I fear that the more we think we are the best, the more we actually slip into post-modernism (meaning "get beyond this modernist seeking when we should be seeking to be simpler like the noble savages".)

As that is the condition that the self-assessed elite Progs want to inflict on us lesser humans, I offer this story as one lesson.

Let it help us recall that older -- and what is too often presumed lesser -- generations actually can provide us with not only good solutions, but remind us of something considerably more dangerous. That the cultures subjected to Prog dominance are flattered about their alleged intelligence. They are indoctrinated in complacency (read compliance) to have the carefree nature of Eloi: "Why seek more knowledge when you already are the best?"

The intent is to make the subjects dumber, more vulnerable to things like disease, and easier to control. That father of the Morlocks, H. G. Wells, set the Prog standard and it seems that they continue to follow toward his goal.

Even if this blog post got wider distribution, I don't expect very many people to take it seriously. That is truly sad.

Because if it were taken seriously, such a response would actually start some real countermeasures rolling. There is greatness to be gained in remembering to be humble.

For Those Who Accept SSM's Propaganda Unquestionably

Every once in awhile it is helpful to take note how easy it is to prank people. In this one, each unsuspecting mark undoubtedly feared for his or her life at least for a moment.

Enjoy "Fast & Furious Nerd Shocks Instructors."




What Have You Done for Me Lately Lefty?

This is a question that all Leftists (and liberals still unaware that Leftists see them as useful idiots) had better be able to answer to those in power:

What have you done for us lately?

When you either don't have an answer or finally lose something those in power wanted, below the break is a hint of what to expect as a reward for all your past service.


Is Obama Sunni or Shia?

I've been told that this is the question being asked all around the Middle East. I wonder what the answer will be?

When the blinders are ripped off, it's not always cause to celebrate

When liberal groups split off from long time allies because the long time allies expose themselves as really the kind of villains conservatives have long warned the liberal group they were aiding, there is both a sigh of relieve in our side AND the nagging feeling that "maybe they are just looking to save face now that the atrocities of their former partner is so blatantly out in the open."

http://www.clarionproject.org/news/amnesty-international-severs-ties-rights-group-cage

Liberal groups tend, as a whole, to automatically detest conservative groups simply because they have done it for so long. Their indoctrination has been that strong.

So even when all that the conservative groups have warned about proves to be true, the liberal groups tend to give them NO credit.

This could be remedied except for the fact that there are far too many establishment moles within conservative groups who will make sure that the liberals are disenchanted once again, and very soon.

Remember folks. There is no Left and Right. There is really only Up and Down. Profess it. Let Ronald Reagan show you how. http://pascalfervor.blogspot.com/2014/02/200-reward-for-verified-copy-82-83.html

Thirty Years: Yikes!

It was only yesterday that the Los Angeles Marathon began. Yet here it is, the 30th. It always starts near my home at about 7AM and thus it is hard to go anywhere until they open the streets again. This year, because of the route, I would have had to go 3-4 miles North If I wanted to take my car to the other side of the freeway!

This picture -- of later runners entering my neighborhood -- is the nearest overpass over that freeway.
30th L.A. Marathon at Edgeware over US 101
Update: It is actually 30 events and only 29 years.

It's a matter of discrete events beginning with the number 1 and called the first.
Ordinal numbers, not anniversaries of birth.

Still, it seems like yesterday that L.A. thought they oughta follow the lead of other major cities for a change rather than be the trend setter. LOL for the irony.

Rejoice

My wisteria bloomed in full this week. While I cannot provide you with its wonderful fragrance that is driving my bees into ecstasy, I encourage you to use your imagination.

Our imagination is important, especially to aid our optimism when all else seems discouraging. Please let this photo serve as a reminder that even in seasonless Southern California,  Spring announces her return with vibrancy and vitality nevertheless.

Perhaps this helps explain why it is said "hope Springs eternal."

For those of you have still to dig out of the depths of a real winter, and especially for all who recognize that this is time of descending darkness in the political realm, this is a gift to you from him who, too often, sounds like Jeremiah.

Call Their Lies Out As Evil, Not Deranged

The Statists and their Leftist shock troops are totally shameless. Mocking them as deranged is a deflection.

It serves to prepare decent people for the fight that is coming. It is essential to fully understand that the enemy is evil and not merely deranged.

As an example, JWF posted the following headline today.
Peak Walker Derangement Syndrome: ‘Who’s Scarier: Scott Walker or ‘Jihadi John’?’

Jammie was asserting derangement despite various SSM having retracted the bogus story about WI Gov Scott Walker, the Left wackos kept up the attacks as if they never heard the truth.

Just as Jammie finds it hard to believe that the Leftoids don't know the facts, so that their persistence is a sign of derangement, I find it hard to believe that he is unaware of Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, a publication Alinsky himself dedicated to the Lord of Darkness.

So I left the following understated reproval for Jammie and any others who foolishly believe it is better to play it safe by describing the despicable tactic of unrelenting personal abuse -- the spreading known lies in deliberate, personal attacks -- as signs of insanity instead.

  1. pascal on 2/02/15 at 2:32 pm

    Deranged in the face of facts? Oh please Jammie. It’s Alinsky evil.

    In this instance, a combination of rules 6, 8 and 12.

    RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” Facts be damned, it’s fun to behave like 6 year old bullies.

    RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” What facts? We didn’t hear them.

    RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. The target always knows the truth, so the constant lies that never go away are intended to make him lash out at some point and then he’s toast.

    Evil tactics, not simple errors committed by deranged nuts. Headline that instead Jammie.

The List of Lost Liberties -- Levin

Mark Levin, concluding his opening segment, declared,
When people say we're losing our country, they're wrong. 

We've lost our country.   
Everything that follows below is my short synopsis of the points he raised (evidence he provided not included) before arriving at that conclusion.
All of this can be found by listening to the opening 15 minutes of the podcast. (BTW, also try to find time to listen to Sue in the last 15 minutes of the podcast. What she has to report about Obama's plan to further Balkanize us is worth the time.)

 2/26/15-Mark Levin Audio Rewind (1:53:22)

We lost more liberty today.

  1. Internet. 
  2. Healthcare.
  3. Banks.
  4. Student loans.
  5. Seized Congress' control of spending.
  6. Seized Congress' legislative power.
  7. Seized Congress' power over immigration and naturalization.
  8. Seized confirmation process (failed for now).
  9. Accepts limits in treaties as if law without Senate confirmation.
  10. Attacked most of the Bill of Rights:
  1. Speech and of the press.
  2. Religious liberty.
  3. 2nd A. (bullet bans).
  4. Due process rights.
  5. Takings clause.
  6. States' rights.
Assaults
  1. on the Declaration of Independence.
  2. on the Free Market
  3. Private property rights
  4. Industrial heartland
"The Democratic Party has become a flat-out party of tyranny. Centralized power, authoritarianism and worse. Seeks power for power's sake. Seeks to control your life."

"A growing police state in the name of seeking security all as he hollows out the military from within."

"The Republican Party is a throwback party. Not the party of Lincoln that stood up to slavery. Not the party of Reagan who stood up to the Soviet Union. An old, fat, directionless Republican party that exists to serve its leaders, its bureaucrats and its operatives, not the American people."

"The Democrat Party is a radical, statist party. (Seeks at every turn to destroy individual liberty, state sovereignty, private property rights and the rule of law.) A party led by fanatics who seek power to rule over you. To rule over everything you do, large and small. Whatever it is, they want to control it because they want to control you. A despotic party with a despotic leader in the White House."

Demonstrating How the Left Is NOT Liberal

When will the liberals you know finally understand how the Left is not Liberal? And, further has really only ployed that label in the past in order to make its gains?

I think In Left's Always Mutating Mutant Hierarchy, Muslims Are The New Gay by Ace of Spades  will help you get through to those liberals who know you and maybe even love you.

Excerpts:

Jamie Kirchick writes on a bunch of topics related to identity politics in this long piece; worth reading. He examines the Rock-Paper-Scissors hierarchy of victims; Muslims are now at the top of the Victim Period, and at the very bottom, of course, are Jews, who really aren't even considered by the left to be victims at all, even when they're murdered. Even as they lay dying on the street, they're Oppressors.

[Ace quoting Kirchick]:
Consider the administration's initial response to the murder of three Muslim-Americans in North Carolina last week, the motive for which, at the time, was unclear. The day after the incident, with the FBI inquiry into the matter having just been launched, the president himself released a statement declaring that "No one in the United States of America should ever be targeted because of who they are, what they look like, or how they worship." It stands in contrast to White House spokesman Josh Earnest's deplorable remark that the victims of the Paris attack "were killed not because of who they were but because of where they randomly happened to be."
...
The latest FBI crime statistics report six times as many hate crime incidents directed against Jews as they do against Muslims. Likewise in Europe, Jews are more likely to be victimized by hate crime than Muslims, who are themselves usually the perpetrators of anti-Semitic attacks.

It's a good piece, deriding the left's vicious Jacobins....

All of these fanatical movements purge their least-monstrous members. In the French Revolution, the Liberals went to the guillotines first; then the Constitutionalists; then the Girondists. Each group went along with the guillotining of the next group, thinking -- or just hoping -- that if they agreed to guillotine the next batch, they themselves would be spared the National Razor.

But they weren't. Including, in the end, the Jacobins themselves, who were all fed into the guillotines.

I have copied the whole piece (with a different title for the email) and sent it off with a simple introduction asking the questions I asked at the top.

The Less Nasty Reason for Amnesty

The more nasty reason is that it allows jihadis to sneak across the border and join the imported army hiding out in the mosques with their cached weopons.

If the Western press, the Soviet-style Media, succeeds in keeping that traitorous thought from becoming commonly understood for the deadly threat that it is, then the following may be allowed to become the meme that replaces it.

The less nasty reason is, quite simply, that both parties have aligned to allow 0 to fast-track the importation of a new American citizenry more to their liking.

The Mexican and Central American peasants, being accustomed to a very limited set of opportunities by their despotic upper classes, view coming to America as a chance of a lifetime. And it is and will continue to be for some unknown short-term.

This is especially so because they are given that all sorts of socialist goodies from the moment they cross the border, making the traditional American lure of an opportunity to make a good life from ones own abilities run as a distant second lure.

In a post from 2011, Ameristocracy Targeting TJICs, I coined the phrase Ameristocracy. Please read it.

The incoming third-worlders, long accustomed to being abused by their despots, are more accepting of their new, more benign, Norte American despots. They, as a lower class from rigidly classed societies, cannot understand why native Norte Americanos could be concerned.

Native Americans are simply not malleable enough to be relied upon to go along with the ever more demanding desires of our Ameristocracy and its ruling class. So a population that IS more accustomed to being bossed around is highly desirable and so welcomed open arms.

It serves to dilute voter resistance to the extent that voting still has any meaning.

And what bothers me most about this is that although it is bad that America is on the fast track to becoming a more rigidly classed society that it never really has been (upward mobility has long been an American dream come true time and again), it IS the less nasty reason for why amnesty is bad.

You do recall what the more nasty reason is don't you? Jihadis hiding amongst the invaders.

It would be a good thing were these peasants would come to understand how short-lived their improved life will be once the more nasty reason became "kinetic."

However, how in the world could we ever convey to them that they are welcomed here because they serve as useful idiots in providing cover for terrorists? Given how impossible it has been to convey to our fellow native Americans (with no language barrier) how deadly is our Ameristocracy to the existence of America as the home for individual freedom.

Pray.

Loser Maher Publicized by Breitbart.com

The "Right" side of the SSM, Breitbart.com, has chosen to pedal, not one, not two, but three links to videos of Bill Maher's nonsense. Maher could never garner such a large audience as Breitbart potentially could give him.


Bottom line
SSM will do whatever it takes to keep you irritated, even if it has to resort to the words of a worm 3 times each hour.

This Post Cost Me At Least $65K

Yes. To many folks I am still out of my mind. It is now well more than 2 years since I turned 66. I haven't bothered to find out how much more my monthly draw would be because I've not filed a claim for social security. Simply based on the base amount available at 66, the total is now in excess of $65,000.

A couple of too clever fellows have winked at me "not taking it now means you'll get more when you do take it." The fact is I'd have to live to be more than 100 to make up that difference. That's not a good bet even without real inflation considerations. Some people just can't accept that though I'm obviously intelligent that I'd actually do such a thing. Or even worse from their standpoint: that there might be many more people like me. Afterall, such people serve to make our trough-swilling pols and their beneficiaries look even worse than they currently are.

I'm sure they much rather think that I'm either dishonest or nuts. Sorry fellows. It's not about what you think or feel at all.

I continue to thank the Lord that I have not needed to file. That's good enough for me.

Phony Comaraderie

This morning's email brought the following solicitation.

To

me

Hey Pascal,

I wanted to check in to see if you'll be able to contribute towards Heritage's million dollar goal by the December 31 deadline.

Blah, blah, blah, blah.

Blah, blah.

Blah, blah, and blah.
All my best,

Christie Fogarty
Director of Membership
The Heritage Foundation

P.S. The Heritage Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, so your gift by December 31 is tax-deductible.
Response:

Hey Christie (if that's your real name),

Your "Hey Pascal" greeting is the kind that I receive from buddies with whom I email back and forth regularly.

Am I now one of your buddy correspondents that this greeting seems appropriate?

It's been my experience that emails of this sort come from a mass mailing, and that yours is a one way email address that accepts no incoming
Bottom line: it's a waste of any recipient's time to respond to them as they would with any of their  buddies.

So, next time, don't even consider greeting me with you condescending "Hey" at the least. 
In fact, you may address me as Mr. Fervor. Make some attempt to begin on the right foot.
