Nigel regularly appears on shows here in the US wondering why we would want to bring the same kind of ridiculous leftist polices the EU now faces to our own shore. Here, while addressing the EU, he lays out the folly in so many leftist policies–they never work, but they can never admit they don’t work, so the only solution they see is to throw more money at the problem. Here Nigel questions the serial “more money/no solution” pattern in the EU’s current financial crisis:

I don’t know if you have been keeping up with the Christian Adams story–he’s a former DOJ attorney in the Voting Rights Division and resigned over the Obama Administration’s refusal to prosecute the New Black Panthers Voting Rights case (still works for DOJ, but has been exiled to SC). The problem runs much deeper–when the Obama Administration’s Christine Fernandez was appointed to DOJ, she, in effect, threw out enforcement of Section 8 of the Motor Voter law passed under Clinton. That section requires that states certify to the DOJ their voting roles are “clean”–ie, checked for deaths, move-aways, and that registered voters meet legal requirements to participate in the elections. Here’s the background by Christian Adams:
I hope you’ve been keeping up with the “Houston Votes” issue. First, the Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector, Leo Vasquez, announced widespread voter fraud in Harris County by an organizational offshoot of ACORN, Houston Votes, and schedules a press conference. Days after the scheduled press conference, the Houston warehouse containing all the voting machines for Harris County burned to the ground. Here’s a little background (short):
Now here is a video by a group formed in response to the widespread voter fraud they witnessed in Harris County last cycle:
Voter registration should be our focus now–but I think we should start recruiting people as poll watchers as well. I truly believe that there is massive voter fraud going on–enough to steal close elections as Christine Gregoire did in WA in 2004 and Franken in MN in 2008 (remember the boxes of “found” ballots that kept appearing until they finally won by a couple of hundred votes? King County was later fined $225k for refusing an FOIA request based on a study that at least hundreds of votes cast had been illegal. The county election official in charge of that operation has now moved to Los Angeles). Also, note how this seems to go hand-in-hand with the Dems admitted scheme to get far left ideologues voted into Secretary of State offices nationwide (Project SOS). The writing is on the wall for anyone willing to read it. The Dems are going to pull out the stops this next cycle. There may be voter fraud on a scale heretofore unimaginable in a country like the United States. It’s up to us to stop it.
There is nothing more sacred than our right to vote. And that right is destroyed when those who don’t have the legal right to vote counter our legitimate votes. As an American, it should make your blood boil.
Please forward this information to your local Tea Party affiliate or other group. IMO, this kind of chicanery, a breach of trust by those who perpetrate it, should bring with it prosecution and incarceration. But we can’t prosecute it without eyes and ears to report it.
Has NYC Mayor Bloomberg lost his mind? What about the mosque at Ground 0 has driven him, and the left, temporarily insane?
Nobody wants to keep Muslims from peacefully practicing their faith. Admittedly, I don’t live in NYC and don’t have the scoop on each and every protest, but nobody I’ve heard hates Muslims or is an “Islamaphobe.” But people do have feelings–and the feelings of the family members of the victims of 9/11 have been pushed to the side in this debate like so much garbage by the likes of Bloomberg. He’s an absolute disgrace to New York and America. That he can’t defend the rights of those who suffered the most because he’s too gutless to abandon his pathological political correctness shows just how cowardly he and his cohorts are.
Nobody I know of has asked Bloomberg or the city to shut down the initiative. All of the protests I’ve seen have expressed outrage over the insensitivity of the imam, Rauf, and his dubious motivation for placing the mosque at that particular spot, and have asked that Rauf–nobody else–move the mosque, IF his intentions are truly honorable. Nobody’s tried to take away anybody’s right to practice Islam. But you know what? Bloomberg and the left’s constant haranguing of those who oppose it for those reasons are turning that reasoned opposition into a hard line, absolutest mindset by their tone-deafness and ignoring of anyone who dares question the wisdom of the mosque so close to a site where 3000 Americans died.
Bloomberg and the chattering class are foolish clowns, posturing and primping for the camera and publicly lobbying for their invitation to the next lefty confab in NYC. They should be ashamed of themselves. But we all know they really have no shame.
Ask him about what he’s said in the past. This is your “Counter-terrorism Czar” John Brennan. He has stated that a 20% recidivism rate for Guantanamo isn’t really too bad and called Jerusalem “al-Quds”–its Arabic name. He also says that “jihad” is a legitimate tenet of Islam. Here he’s confronted with a question that he cannot answer after presenting himself out as an expert on Islam:
How hard a question is this? The left accuses the right of bigotry because they bring up concerns about Islam, but the left proves daily it doesn’t have a clue about it either–just general concepts that comport to their constructed reality and cast Muslims beliefs and attitudes in the left’s preconceived notions based on little more than what they wish were true.
Can we cram any more incompetents into one administration?
For those not familiar, the Frankfurt School was a “communist Utopian-based school” in Frankfurt, Germany, founded in the Marxist revolution that swept Europe in the early 1900’s, and the techniques developed here were based on the tools used by both Mussolini and Hitler to build their fascist movements. The school was abandoned when Hitler turned against the communist government of Russia in WWII and began seeking out communist infiltrators.
Those Marxists escaped to the United States and made Columbia University their home. This three-part video details the Frankfurt School and its ideology in terms of “political correctness,” but provides a good background on the techniques and strategies developed by those Frankfurt School refugees at Columbia to create Marxist governments:
I guess their hypocrisy knows no bounds. While they talk of Republicans trying to take away their Medicare, seniors would do well to remember who just wiped out $500 million of Medicare (and inevitably more as this boondoggle grows). Who is talking of pain pills and end-of-life counseling instead of lifesaving medicine? Who has decided that boards of physicians can fashion “one-size-fits-all” medicine?
And the Dems’ claims they can make up the $500 million in overspending, fraud, and waste? So they are implying that the government knows where these savings are but just hasn’t bothered to track them down?
Seniors have far more experience–and wisdom–than the typical liberal. Scare tactics may work on the poor, uneducated, and government-dependent; but they will fall on deaf ears in the face of the overwhelming evidence that Dems consider seniors past their prime and of little future use, constituting nothing more than “excess baggage” in their entitlement state.
