America's's optimal!

The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency.  It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president.
The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”
~ Author Unknown

The republic can survive a Barack Obama.
But it cannot survive another four years!

Has O'Reilly Gone Bonkers?

Just a short note...

Leon Panetta Ex-Cia Director,
Liar,Crook and Scoundrel
Picture courtesy of
While searching through my email list the television was loud enough to hear Bill O'Reilly say that Leon Panetta was an honest man.  O'Reilly exact words "...Panetta is an honest guy." (The O'Reilly Factor, Thursday, October 25, 2012)  Regardless of whatever the conversation was about its impossible to to take those words out of context.  Panetta is as big a liar as Obama.  Panetta is also a communist and caters to communistic ideology.  Lying is is a way of life for the entire Obama clan.  Wake up O'Reilly! ~ Norman E.

Nothing: Something that has no quantitative value; zero; a liberal mindset

Just because I haven't been posting something every day lately doesn't mean that I've been out of touch.  I'm pretty much caught up on all the latest opinions of the recent presidential debates and I think I've heard them all.  I'm not about to express mine for it may differ from all the rest...and my opinion is not going to change the world...nor will it change the mind  set of an Obama supporter...they'll do what their warped minds tell them to do regardless of any logical hypotheses or empirical evidence.  Besides catching up on some book reading, I've gone back and looked at some of the articles I was saving for one reason or another.  Oh, I don't know why; just because I thought they were worth saving.  Peggy Noonan writes for several publications and she has written a few books one of which I read but the title escapes me at the was the one about Ronald Reagan.  Peggy wrote the following commentary about ten weeks ago and I saw no reason to toss it into my recycle bin for we are becoming A Nation That Believes Nothing. ~ Norman E. Hooben

A Nation That Believes Nothing
by Peggy Noonan
Romney doesn't need to talk about America becoming like Europe—he needs to warn us about America becoming like California. ~ The Wall Street Journal: August 11, 2012
It’s been a week marked by mistakes, some new and some continuing.

The pro-Obama super PAC ad that essentially blames Mitt Romney for a woman’s death from cancer is over the line, and if it’s allowed to stand the personal attacks that have marked the presidential campaign will probably get worse. If the president rebukes the PAC and renounces the ad—and he should, and he’d look better doing it than not doing it—then we’ll all know there’s an ethical floor below which things can’t sink. The ad was a mistake for a number of reasons, one being that it makes the president look perfidious and weak: “Mudslinging is all we’ve got.” It also may finally injure his much vaunted likability ratings.

Conservative critics are correct that the Romney campaign’s pushback was weak. When someone suggests in the public arena that you are a killer you do have to respond with some force. Since media outlets have already pointed out the ad’s claim is false, no one would no one would think it out of bounds if Mr. Romney hit back with indignation and disgust.

Actually, that would be a public service. The ad’s cynicism contributes to a phenomenon that increases each year, and that is that we are becoming a nation that believes nothing. Not in nothing, but nothing we’re told by anyone in supposed authority.

Everyone knows what the word spin means; people use it in normal conversation. Everyone knows what going negative is; they talk about it on Real Housewives. Political technicians always think they’re magicians whose genius few apprehend, but Americans now always know where the magician hid the rabbit. And we shouldn’t be so proud of our skepticism, which has become our cynicism. Someday we’ll be told something true that we need to know and we won’t believe that, either.


I suspect some conservative used the Romney campaign’s listless response as a stand-in for what they’d really like to say to Romney himself, which is, “Wake up, get mad, be human, we’re fighting for our country here!”

Romney is not over- managed by others—he isn’t surrounded by what George H.W. Bush called “gurus”—but he over-manages himself. He second guesses, doubts his own instincts. Up to a certain point that’s good: self possession is a necessary quality in a political leader. But people don’t choose a leader based solely on his ability to moderate himself. They’re more interested in his confidence in his own judgment, or an ease that signals the candidate has an earned respect for his own instincts.

Some of the unperturbed sunniness you see modern political figures attempting to enact may be traceable to Ronald Reagan, the happy warrior who set a template for how winners act. But the Reagan of the 1950s and 60s, was often indignant, even angry. When he allowed himself to get mad, or knew he should be mad and so decided to feign anger, it was a sight to behold. “I’m paying for this microphone,” he famously snapped to the moderator of the 1980 primary campaign debate in Nashua, N.H. He didn’t win that crucial state by being sunny.

A lot of politicians misunderstand this part of their art. A few months ago I talked with a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate. I asked to hear the outlines of the candidate’s planned appeal to voters. The candidate leaned forward and said with some intensity, “I’m going to tell them I can get along with people. I can work with the other side.”

This was a great example of confusing the cart with the horse. Why would anyone vote for you, especially during a crisis, only because you play well with the other children? What are your issues, where do you stand, what will you do when you get to Washington? If you believe in something and mean to move it forward the people will give you a fair hearing, and if you make clear that you hope to make progress with the help of a knack for human relations, that’s good too.

But this cult of equability, this enforced, smiley, bland dispassion—Guys, we’re in a crisis, you’ve got to know how to fight, too.


And you’ve got to fight on the issues.

Both candidates wasted some time this week calling each other names in a sort of cheesy, noneffective, goofy way. “Obamaloney.” “Romney Hood.” Actually goofy isn’t the right word because goofy is fun, and there’s no wit or slash in what they were doing.

Calling Romney’s economic plans Romney Hood was dim because everyone likes Robin Hood, so Romney Hood sounds kind of like a compliment. Now and then the foes of a candidate accidentally do him a good turn. The Soviets thought they were disparaging Margaret Thatcher when they called her the Iron Lady. She was cold, wouldn’t bend, couldn’t compromise. The British heard the epithet and thought: Exactly! And exactly what we need!

An admiring nickname meant as an insult was born. Romney should go with it, lay out how he’ll save taxpayers from the predators of the liberal left and call that Romney Hood.

But he and his supporters should drop the argument that if we don’t change our ways we’ll wind up like Europe. That’s a mistake because Americans like Europe, and in some complicated ways wouldn’t mind being a little more like it. In the past 40 years jumbo jets, reduced fares and rising affluence allowed a lot of Americans, especially the sort who vote, to go there. The great capitals of Europe are glamorous, elegant and old, the outlands are exquisite. What remains of the old Catholic European ethic that business isn’t everything, life is everything and it’s a sin not to enjoy it, still has a lure. Americans sometimes think of it as they eat their grim salads and drink from their plastic water bottles . . .

When Americans go to Europe they see everything but the taxes. The taxes are terrible. But that’s Europe’s business and they’ll have to figure it out. Yes what happens there has implications for us but still, they’re there and we’re here.

What Americans are worried about, take as a warning sign, and are heavily invested in is California—that mythic place where Sutter struck gold, where the movies were invented, where the geniuses of the Internet age planted their flag, built their campuses, changed our world.

We care about California. We read every day of the bankruptcies, the reduced city services, the businesses fleeing. California is going down. How amazing is it that this is happening in the middle of a presidential campaign and our candidates aren’t even talking about it?

Mitt Romney should speak about the states that work and the states that don’t, why they work and why they don’t, and how we have to take the ways that work and apply them nationally.

Barack Obama can’t talk about these things. You can’t question the blue-state model when your whole campaign promises more blue-state thinking.

But Romney can talk about it.

Both campaigns are afraid of being serious, of really grappling with the things Americans rightly fear. But there’s no safety in not being serious. It only leaves voters wondering if you’re even capable of seriousness. Letting them wonder that is a mistake.
Bonus Video...Don't laugh, the same thing is happening in the U. S. of A.

The 'REAL' Jihad against the Federal Reserve

I was watching TV when the news broke about a young man wanting to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank in New York City... Was I worried?  Not in the least!  It was just another planned event by the powers to be (in this case the patsies over at the FBI) wanting to remind American citizens what a wonderful job they're doing concerning their number one responsibility...our safety!  If you think that the Obama administration is one-bit concerned about your safety then I've got some ocean front property in Arizona for sale.  Meanwhile, Saman Mohammadi posts an interesting commentary that pretty much explains the reality of these faux scare tactics (that's tactics with an 's'...there were others and there will be more).  ~ Norman E.

The FBI Wants You To Believe There Is A Global Jihad Against The [Private] Federal Reserve ( ~ source)

Totalitarian governments operate very predictably and foolishly. Their propaganda is so over-the-top absurd that even the most gullible and uneducated members of their permanently indoctrinated populations start becoming more and more skeptical of official government accounts of reality.

According to The Fascist Bureau of Intimidation, the same institution that was responsible for the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. and other American political reformers in the 1960s, is in the habit of abusing its authority in the post-9/11 paranoid political environment in the United States.

Last week, the FBI arrested a young man from Bangladesh named Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis for planning to blow up the New York Federal Reserve Bank. It all sounds very scary, but the FBI had everything under control. Innocent lives were never at stake because the manipulative FBI supplied Nafis with a fake bomb. Those tricky spies were just having a little fun with the guy. No big deal.

Kurt Nimmo reported on October 17 in an article called, "FBI Entraps Witless Patsy in Federal Reserve Bombing Plot":

Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis was provided with “inert explosives” by federal agents and closely monitored by the FBI as he tried to act out his plot, according to the Associated Press.

Federal prosecutors said Nafis had proposed several spots for his attack, including the New York Stock Exchange. In a letter claiming responsibility for the Federal Reserve plot, he said he wanted to “destroy America.”

Nafis also provided the feds with a videotaped statement in which he said, “We will not stop until we attain victory or martyrdom.”

Federal authorities said the public was not in danger at any point during its “sting” operation.
Alex Newman writes in his article, "FBI Celebrates Foiling Its Own Terror Plot, Again":

In reality, however, there was no al-Qaeda, there was no threat, there were no bombs, and the only alleged “plot” the FBI “foiled” was the one it helped hatch with its dupe, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis. Like the vast majority of recent domestic “terror” schemes against the United States, the latest supposed “operation” was essentially run by authorities from start to finish.
There are very imaginative people working for the FBI. They must watch a lot of movies in their offices. Action and spy films probably motivated them to join the FBI in the first place, rather than any sense of patriotism or love for public service.

How can FBI officers justify their existence when there are no domestic or foreign security threats to the United States government besides Wall Street bankers and rogue CIA officials? Instead of catching the real bad guys, FBI officials spend all their time finding Muslim dupes, give them fake bombs, tell them what to say, and then stand back and let the magic happen.

After every one of its staged terror stunts, the FBI invites television crews and issues grand public statements about how they prevented a great disaster. This is really silly stuff. This is not something that sane adults do. Sane adults do not create terror plots out of scratch and manufacture fake emergencies. This is what failed states that have no political legitimacy do.

Pakistan's security services is also neck-deep in this kind of fear-mongering, stupidity, and nonsense. They use the fear of the Taliban, an organization that they created with the CIA, which they continue to fund and arm, in order to justify the draconian use of state power.

Seriously, has the FBI no shame? Do FBI officials have self-respect? Are there any patriots left in this insane institution?

We all know the answer.

The entire U.S. political establishment has become a total joke. The FBI's invented case of a Jihadist aiming to blow up the Federal Reserve is part of a larger narrative, the purpose of which is to make the American people believe that the Federal Reserve is a victim of a grand conspiracy.

The conspiracy theorists in the totalitarian government in Washington are pushing the paranoid view that Al-Qaeda and the Tea Party will form a strategic, political, and ideological alliance and take revenge on America.

So, we're supposed to believe that drugged up Muslim dupes in Al-Qaeda and anti-Muslim, hardcore American patriots in the Tea Party will team up and fight America? Okaaay. The U.S. government has officially gone batshit crazy. It has entered tin-foil hat territory.


The fanciful link between Al-Qaeda and the Tea Party is manufactured through internal government planning papers and staged terror events. The U.S. army wrote about the "insurrectionist" tendencies of the Tea Party in a document called, Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A “Vision” of the Future. Paul Joseph Watson wrote an article about the bizarre paper, here is an excerpt:
An academic study about the future use of the military as a peacekeeping force within the United States written by a retired Army Colonel depicts a shocking scenario in which the U.S. Army is used to restore order to a town that has been seized by Tea Party “insurrectionists”.
Citing the Declaration of Independence and the fact that the federal government is not deriving its “just powers from the consent of the governed,” the Tea Party rebels draw support from, “other tea party groups, militias, racist organizations such as the Ku Klux Klan, anti-immigrant associations such as the Minutemen, and other right-wing groups.” The paper goes on to add how Al-Qaeda terrorists also may hijack the crisis outlined in the scenario or join forces with the Tea Party rebels.
It is no secret that one of the biggest political targets of populist anger in the United States is the privately managed Federal Reserve cartel, which has protected the big banks at the cost of impoverishing America's national infrastructure and economic health. Basically, the criminal Federal Reserve has financially raped the United States.

Watch this interview of Lew Rockwell on Russia Today to learn how the Federal Reserve has been responsible for the growth of the war state and the decline of the American middle class.

By stimulating fake terror cases in which the Federal Reserve is presented as the victim of global Islamic Jihadists, the FBI is masking the political corruption of this criminal and vampiric institution that has aided and abetted financial treason against the United States.

The idea that idiotic Jihadists and Al-Qaeda would want to target the Federal Reserve is ridiculous. They don't even know what the Federal Reserve is, who created it, and when it was created, so how can they be angry at what it is doing? Al-Qaeda only targets what the CIA tells it to target because it controls it. If the CIA ordered Al-Qaeda to target Mecca and burn down the Kaaba, Al-Qaeda would do it.

This guy Nafis is a joke. The real and true "Jihad" against the Federal Reserve began in 1776 by Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, James Madison, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and the other great founding fathers of America.

They declared a war on private central banks and gross financial speculation, and won. Washington fought against what the Federal Reserve represents, and here is the FBI betraying Washington's legacy by defending the Federal Reserve. It is pitiful and outrageous. Taking the side of financial tyranny is morally wrong and politically unjustifiable.

It must always be remembered that the Federal Reserve is NOT America. It is a leech upon America. There is nothing federal about it. Ron Paul is a bigger national institution than the Fed. This illegitimate, illegal, unnecessary, treasonous, and corrupt institution was not around when America was created.

A hundred years of economic data has proven what a monstrous institution the Fed is and that the founders were right about the ills of private central banking. A private central bank should've never been created in America. The Fed steals and destroys the wealth of the American people. That is all it does.

If Thomas Jefferson was alive in our time he would write a Declaration of Independence from the Federal Reserve and declare an eternal jihad against it. And, in turn, the treacherous FBI would label him a domestic terrorist. That is how crazy, moronic, and corrupt the FBI has become. Anything it says is propaganda and must be rejected at face value.
