Freedom is Good, Equality is Evil

Contrary to conventional wisdom an AEI study shows that the standards of living for all income groups, including the poorest, have been growing over the past decade



Terry Jones of IBD and Yaron Brook of the Ayn Rand Institute talk to Allen Barton about income inequality. H/t PJMedia

Yaron Brook explains in the video the evil of equality. The trick in egalitarianism is this: 'leveling the playing field' is by definition a one way street. You can't take away from the poor what they do not have. You can only take away from the haves. In terms of capabilities: cut the limbs of Michael Jordan and hand them to..who? The principle is shown in this video. What we want is freedom, mobility.

In 1940 Greeks Stood Firm Against the Bullies

On October 28, 1940 the Italian ambassador delivered an ultimatum from Mussolini: free entry of the Italian army into Greece. The answer of the Greeks was an unequivocal, no - ochi! 


Women of Crete during World War II - H/t A. Papapostolou

On October 28th, millions of  Greeks around the world commemorate 'Ochi Day', honoring Greece's courageous resistance during WWII. On October 28, 1940 the Italian ambassador to Greece, Emanuele Grazzi delivered an ultimatum from Benito Mussolini to Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas. He demanded the entry of the Italian army into Greece for its occupation. When Metaxas was faced with this moral question, he delivered an unequivocal response: "Then, it is war", he said. How many people, especially today, would have laid down their arms and capitulated rather than fight in the face of brutal aggression? Every October 28th, Greeks honor this heroic stance celebrating saying No, Ochi to the bullies of their time. They are the only people commemorating the beginning of a war, rather than the end of it, and celebrate taking this moral decision. They are an example to all of us.

Obama's Policies May Will Cause the End of NATO

The National Security Agency (NSA) cannot spy on anyone unless its activities are authorized by the White House. Merkel is very upset that the US monitored her personal cell phone


Obama’s actions may well lead to the dissolution of NATO. European leaders have understandably lost trust in Obama. 

Spying On Friends Ordered By America’s Dolt-In-Chief 


By Jim Emerson

The National Security Agency (NSA) cannot spy on anyone, friend or foe, unless its activities are authorized by the White House. In short, for the low information voter, Barack Obama had to order it. Feeling betrayed by a nation she considered a good friend, German Chancellor Angela Merkel is very upset that the United States monitored her personal cell phone. Germany has had a long history of sharing information and intelligence with the United States. Allies obviously need a high level of trust in each other. The revelation that Obama’s NSA was spying on NATO ally leaders has dealt a serious blow to that necessary trust.

October EUCO: Germany Gets Its Way On Federalism

The agenda for the October EUCO focusses on the Digital Economy, Economic and Social Policy, the Eastern Partnership Summit, and Lampedusa. Exciting, what?



Nigel Farrage yesterday during the Strassbourg session of the EP ripped into the covert federal agenda that demonizes anyone supportive of the nation state 

UPDATE: Another EUCO has come and gone and the results are as ever the same: encroaching federalism at the expense of national sovereignty:

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday (25 October) said fellow EU leaders during a summit in Brussels have "accepted the principle" of binding reform contracts that will transfer further sovereignty from a national level to the European Commission. Merkel was cautious not to make "false promises" that a deal on this extra level of EU scrutiny will be achieved already in December, as details still need to be ironed out. "But there is a clear commitment that we want to go beyond the current procedures in the European Semester," she said (Source)

Watch here how the chair of the European Parliament, comrade Schulz makes a fool of himself in a debate with former Deputy PM of Slovakia Richard Sulik. Schulz argues he was elected by 754 MEPs while Sulik represents 300,000 actual voters



Richard Sulik was called off after his party dared to vote against a loan to Greece. The government fell and Slovakia was forced to vote again and 'get it right'.

Obama's Attack on Constitution and 1st Amendment

The attack of the Obama administration on the US Constitution continues. Those who knew more about his ideologies before he was voted into office, are not in the least susprised


The very premise of a free press is violated. It raises concerns when one of the seizing agencies was a frequent target of the reporter’s work.

Armed agents seize records of reporter, Washington Times prepares legal action


Maryland state police and federal agents used a search warrant in an unrelated criminal investigation to seize the private reporting files of an award-winning former investigative journalist for The Washington Times who had exposed problems in the Homeland Security Department's Federal Air Marshal Service. Reporter Audrey Hudson said the investigators, who included an agent for Homeland's Coast Guard service, took her private notes and government documents that she had obtained under the Freedom of Information Act during a predawn raid of her family home on Aug. 6.

Arguing with Ideologues

This scene is a microcosm of how the Left seek to silence the opposition by censorship and leveling personal attacks while avoiding the issues at hand



It shows their ignorance of the issues, their bad habits of changing the subject during the debate, and their wild self-constructed fantasies of the world at large. Indoctrination is a mental disorder.

Turkey Exposes Israel Spies to Iran; Obama Doesn't Give a Damn

Israel is shocked by the hostile act of Turkish PM Erdogan when earlier this year he betrayed and exposed ten Iranian spies for Israel to Iranian intelligence


According to a WaPo report the Turkish government disclosed the identities of agents of Israel's intelligence service Mossad inside Turkey to officials in Tehran.

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Recep Erdoğan's hostility toward Israel and embrace of Hamas terrorists is well established. He has called Zionism, the belief in a Jewish state, "a crime against humanity." But a report published Wednesday evening by Washington Post columnist David Ignatius raises the question of whether Erdoğan, head of a NATO state, deliberately sabotaged efforts to stop Iran's nuclear weapons program out of spite for Israel. Erdoğan's government reportedly gave the Islamic Republic the names of up to 10 Iranians who were meeting Mossad officers inside Turkey last year.

Parallels Between Soviet Infiltration & Muslim Brotherhood

Diana West shakes the historical record to bring down a new understanding of the past, the present, and how the US has become a nation unable to know truth from lies



Diana West explaines the parallels between the Communist demoralization process during the Cold War and the current infiltration by the Muslim Brotherhood

American Betrayal shatters the approved histories of an era that begins with FDR’s first inauguration, when “happy days” are supposed to be here again, and ends when we “win” the Cold War. It is here, amid the rubble, where Diana West focuses on the World War II--Cold War deal with the devil in which America surrendered her principles in exchange for a series of Big Lies whose preservation soon became the basis of our leaders’ own self-preservation.

Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged its Way into 56th Anniversary

Run away public debts, fundamental rights trampled, governments looting the savings of their citizens, and states forgetting their place as servants of the people.. time to go Galt



October 10, 2013 is the 56th anniversary of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. 

That the anniversary falls in the middle of a US Government shut down with anger mounting and protests increasing about misrule, is more than appropriate.

Glenn Beck Warns of a Coup in the Republican Party

A war is going on in the GOP for the heart of the Republican Party. The old 'progressive' guard is battling it out with Libertarian minded upstarts like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Mike Lee



Glenn Beck on Tuesday theorized as to why the "old guard" of the Republican Party are hell bent on destroying the young Turks.

Glenn Beck shared a story with viewers on Wednesday that he’s been keeping close to the vest since before the 2012 election, explaining that he's been waiting for the right time to say what exactly happened, and what it means for the country. (...) 
"There was a coup during the election, and it was powerful (...) They were trying to get rid of the libertarian, Tea Party-minded power players, and first and foremost on that hit list was Matt Kibbe and his allies. They didn’t like the fact that FreedomWorks was cleaning house in the GOP…that they were targeting people like Orrin Hatch. It didn’t sit well with the Karl Roves of the GOP world…"

Beck spoke about the ramifications of the 'coup' for the 2012 election, remarking: "So don’t tell me, GOP and John Cornyn and everybody else, about how FreedomWorks hurt the election. You tied their hands during the last election."

And now, Beck said, "the exact same thing – the same people really – are doing this" within the Republican Party at large — particularly in the United States Senate. 
"Anyone in Congress or the Senate who associates with FreedomWorks, the Senate Conservatives Fund, the Tea Party, anybody, anybody is being targeted by the same class of establishment Republican progressives (...) They do not like it when you organize. They do not like it when you choose the candidates that you actually want." 
Beck added that it’s the same reason lawmakers are not truly pursuing the IRS' targeting of small government groups, because progressives on both sides "want that tool in place…to come after people like you."


IMF Suggests Ten Percent Capital Levy on Savings

It has come! The NWO by means of one of its main mouth pieces, the IMF is preparing the ground for a less subtle form of legalized plunder than convert inflation. The Fed as well as the European Central Bank (ECB) seem to be done for now with QEs and LTROs. The consequences of monetary expansion initially remained restricted to the banking sector, but are finally trickling down into the actual economy.

US Forces Catch Al Qaeda Chief in Libya

After the 21.640th terror attack since 9/11 it's about time to demand from our media and Muslim compatriots  to publicly condemn the onslaughts like we saw in Westgate, Nairobi




After Westgate even Bob Beckel has had enough. This is Beckel in another life.

UPDATE: Today more has become clear what went on in the early hours of Saturday morning:

US forces have struck two militant targets in Africa snatching a top al-Qaeda suspect from the streets of Tripoli and launching a predawn raid against an al Shabaab leader's home in Somalia. In Libya, US forces seized a militant known as Abu Anas al-Libi, a long-sought al-Qaeda operative indicted in the 1998 bombings of US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. (Background)

A separate raid in the southern Somali port of Barawe failed to capture the senior militant and it was unclear whether he had been killed, but a US official said several al-Qaeda-linked al Shabaab members had been killed. It was reportedly "prompted" by the deadly militant siege on a Nairobi shopping mall last month. The operation in Libya however appeared to be a success. (Source)
