“For a group that claims, ‘We are the 99 percent,’ they are acting more like a lawless one percent. I have become increasingly concerned by the growing hostility and violent actions of many of the protesters. It’s time for America to say ‘Enough is enough.'” Mary Bono Mack
Rep. Darrell Issa’s district office in Vista was evacuated Thursday after a suspicious package was left behind by some local protesters.
Rep. Mary Bono Mack immediately took to Facebook and issued a formal statement to the press to say she was “outraged by this senseless act.”
“This is a very serious matter, and those responsible should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law,” Bono Mack said on her Facebook page, noting some protesters were from Occupy Riverside.
Jones is a committed Marxist-Leninist-Maoist who became a revolutionary after meeting ‘young radical people of color’ in jail and views police officers as the arch enemies of black people.
The ousted Obama ‘Green Czar’ who describes himself as a ‘rowdy black nationalist’ turned communist has found a job as the official spokesperson and leader of the national movement to end economic segregation and social injustice in the United States.
Widely known as Occupy Wall Street, the movement has gained momentum with mass, often violent protests that have paralyzed cities across the nation. In New York more than 150 people were arrested and several police officers suffered injuries. In Oakland California police were forced to use riot gear and tear gas to disperse the huge, violent crowds and in Las Vegas nearly two dozen protesters were arrested.
Among the movement’s goals is to get major banks to stop preying on the poor and people of color, according to the organizer of a Massachusetts rally promoted as Take Back Boston. Protesters also demand that politicians stop giving tax breaks to the rich while slashing vital services families depend on. In short, they want to â€œrebuildâ€ the American dream to make it more inclusive.
Leading the campaign is President Obama’s good friend, civil rights lawyer Van Jones, the highly-touted ‘Green Czar’ who was booted amid controversy over his radical history. A Yale Law School grad, Jones became a communist after the 1992 Rodney King riots in Los Angeles and says he loathes capitalism because it exploits nonwhite minorities worldwide. Jones is a committed Marxist-Leninist-Maoist who became a revolutionary after meeting ‘young radical people of color’ in jail and views police officers as the arch enemies of black people.
Tolerance is fast becoming extinct and being replaced by political correctness which is simply a term used to rationalize and /or justify intolerance.
At what point do we recognize that political correctness is just that… a politically motivated bastardization of whom we are, what we believe, and what we do? When did we become so ultra-sensitive that we cannot tolerate anotherâ€™s opinion or beliefs as long as they are not harmful and do not infringe upon the rights or freedoms of another?
Every year the situation seems to worsen. One or two more things that have always been accepted as the norm become forbidden territory.
Every year at this time, various Christmas tree farms donate large and somewhat spectacular trees to the various state capitals and to our nationâ€™s capital. These trees are usually accepted and displayed as part of the traditional Christmas season. Somewhere along the line, someone (probably a politician) decided to placate the few individuals who were unhappy that the beliefs or practices of the many disagreed with their beliefs or practices.
Maybe what is happening this year seems particularly abrasive to me because it involves the state of R.I.? The State (and one time colony) of R.I. was founded and based on religious tolerance and on the belief that government and religion should be kept separate. This year, the governor of R.I. decided to call the tree donated by Big John Leydenâ€™s Christmas Tree Farm in West Greenwich, R.I. a holiday tree rather than a Christmas Tree. What puzzles me is why he accepted the Christmas tree to begin with. What is next? Will we begin insisting a Menorah be called a candlestick holder, the Koran a Muslim guidebook, or the Bible a Christian storybook? Yes, in essence, that is what these things are but why should anyone feel offended by the names those who choose to use them, have given them? For anyone to take offense that someone chooses to either worship or not worship their chosen Deity in their own way is ludicrous at best. If a Christian celebrates Christmas, a Jew Chanukah, or a Muslim Ramadan and chooses to do so openly, what harm are they doing to others regardless of what the others may or may not believe?
The total, some 3,323, adding the 500 IKWRO estimates that police did no report, means that more than nine such crimes were committed every day of the year.
An organization in Britain dedicated to protecting women from so-called honor crimes has reported a massive increase in the practice, noting that Muslims and other religious minorities committed more than 3,000 such crimes in Britain in 2010.
Although a police spokesman offered the politically-correct statement that “honor crimes” cross all religious and cultural boundaries, statistics show that Muslims commit the vast majority of them â€” which are often honor killings. Honor killings are becoming increasingly common in the United States as well.
An honor criminal may lash out for any number of reasons, but the crimes typically involve a woman or girl accused of dishonoring her family by refusing or leaving an arranged marriage, dating someone who is not Muslim, becoming â€œtoo Western,â€ or even receiving a love note from a school chum.
Unsurprisingly, police are reluctant to explain the problem: Islam.
“The Tea Party was about people unhappy with republicans voting for bank bailouts. We thought they sold out our limited government views when they voted to send taxpayer money to the big banks. Unfortunately, Newt Gingrich was right there with them being paid by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It goes against everything that the Tea Party stands for.”
Big Government learned about the organizationâ€™s infiltration after a reader found out that YES had been given authorization to post 15 posters throughout the school featuring a rising fist with the words, â€œJoin the Revolution.â€
A group of student protestors from YES demonstrate
Following a tip from a reader, Big Government has discovered that a radical immigration group, Voces De La Frontera (Voices of the Frontier/VDLF), has infiltrated the public school system in Racine, Wisconsin by working with an approved student group.
School Officials in the Racine Unified School District tell Big Government that they had no idea that the approved group, Youth Empowerment for Students (YES) had become the youth arm of Voces De La Frontera (Voices of the Frontier/VDLF), a well financed leftist movement with a membership of several thousand, a headquarters based in Milwaukee and two satellite offices in Racine and Kenosha.
According to sources within the school district, several hundred students have joined YES and affiliated themselves with VDLF, an organization that has also recruited some of the teachers and who openly promote the groupâ€™s agenda in their classrooms.
Big Government learned about the organizationâ€™s infiltration after a reader found out that YES had been given authorization to post 15 posters throughout the school featuring a rising fist with the words, â€œJoin the Revolution.â€ The poster was a promotional ad for a â€œyouth summitâ€ being held this past Saturday where hundreds of VDLF members were also present.
The findings, published in the European Journal of Social Psychology, suggest remembering the hardships of grandparents, great grandparents and even long forgotten ancestors, seems to have a direct benefit on the brain’s ability to cope with demands on its intelligence.
Fiona Bruce traced her ancestors on TV show Who Do You Think You Are? Researchers claim thinking about your ancestors can boost your chances of success in an exam or job interview
It seems an unlikely route to the top.
But researchers have discovered that spending a few minutes thinking about your ancestors before an exam or job interview can significantly boost your chances of success.
The so-called ‘ancestor effect’ appears to work by acting as a reminder to the brain that seemingly impossible hurdles can be overcome.
Psychologists think the effect may be rooted in the fact that those who familiarise themselves with their family history – such as in the hit TV series Who Do You Think You Are? – appear to gain a stronger sense of identity and self-esteem, which somehow boosts intellectual performance.
In intelligence tests on 80 volunteers, scientists found a marked improvement among those who, prior to the tasks, were asked to spend a short while considering what previous generations of their families had endured.
Those who simply had to recall a more mundane memory, such as a recent shopping trip, did not fare as well.
