Get smart at Hillsdale

This brief video focuses on the corrupt administrative state in America. It was reining in this administrative state that was the focus of much of Trump’s presidency, and that was, to a great degree, why he was brought down, his presidency taken away from him.

The administrative state is now back in the saddle. A large segment of the administrative state are men and women, unelected and unaccountable to anyone, whose work consists of issuing endless rules and regulations.

Hillsdale College is one of the few institutions of higher learning in the United States that continues to educate. It also provides online talks on significant topics by informed people from all walks of life.

There are free courses for the taking. I do.

The Palestine problem

Mohammedan “Palestinians” lost their minds again recently, deciding to fire rockets at Israel. It never turns out well for them, and you’d think they would have figured that out by now, but they have not. Color them dim.

The Democrat Socialist Party in the United States is anti-Semitic as are most university professors and their indoctrinated students across America. They believe the woebegone “Palestinians” are oppressed by Israel, which is baloney.

There is no nation of Palestine and never has been. It’s an area loaded with Mohammedans in that part of the world. This brief video can help you understand what’s happening and has happened over there if you don’t know and perhaps think Israel is oppressing the poor, downtrodden “Palestinians.”

The New York Times and The Washington Post side with the “Palestinians,” of course, as their websites this morning demonstrate. Clearly, they have not watched this informative PragerU video. They reside in a world of ignorance.

There was peace in the Middle East during the Trump Administration — and calm on the Mexican border plus plenty of petrol — but we’re back to business as usual now.

I bring all this to you as a public service. I should provide a tip jar.

The power of words

One would be hard-pressed to find a better example of leftist skullduggery and conservative naiveté than what has been done with the words “liberal” and “progressive.”

Among the quotes you’ll find elsewhere on this website — the right side if you’re using a PC — is this from Dennis Prager:

The usurpation of the word “liberal” by the left has been a catastrophe.

In spite of what you may read or hear elsewhere, there is only one sort of liberal, the classical variety. Liberals believe in freedom of speech, capitalism, nation-states, etc., traits not embraced by leftists. Quite the contrary.

I’ve had people tell me that liberalism used to mean one thing, but now it’s another. That is not true. What we have now are leftists wrapping the cloak of “liberalism,” the word, around their shoulders. Think wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Being” liberal” sounds sweet. Almost everyone wants to think of themselves as liberal because the opposite would be tight-minded, a nasty individual, and who wants to be seen that way? We all want to be liberal, right? And progressive! Who’s not for progress?

I am. You are.

So leftists have stolen and embraced these adjectives as their own, which makes perfect sense. What makes no sense whatsoever is that conservatives, nincompoops as we so often are, go along with the wordplay, the fraud, the theft.

In this six-minute video, Prager illustrates the stark differences between leftists and liberals. Do you call Nancy Pelosi and Kamala Harris liberals? If so, stop it right now. Sleepy Joe doesn’t know what he is. He reads his script, written by leftists. Not liberals.

JFK and FDR were liberals. Today, they’d be tarred and feathered by the Democrat Party.

Not all Democrats are bad

Interesting take here on the numerous otherwise-decent people who still vote for the Democrat Party. I have long contended than many, perhaps even most, people who continue to support the Democrat Party, now more correctly called the Democrat Socialist Party, do so out of habit and not paying sufficient attention to today’s world.

Or paying attention to the wrong news sources.

Dave Morrison, a Los Angeles-area musician, house painter and YouTube whiz, was a Democrat until the 2012 presidential election. I was a Democrat till four years earlier, so Dave is a little slower than I am. He was a Democrat for, I suspect, the same reasons I was, family tradition and ignorance of the Democrat Party’s true history.

He makes a case here that many Democrats, especially middle-aged and older folks, are victims of a sort of Stockholm Syndrome. He makes his case politely and sensibly.

He is a forgiving soul.
