Oh, I get it, when Congress takes unilateral action it’s an outrage, but when Obama does, it’s within his power.

Clearly, Obama and his minions dislike Jews to the point of hatred.

Peter J. Fusco, Sr. publishes new novel, The Eight-Block Rule.

ebr coverTom Sawyer and Huck Finn on steroids wrapped into one mid-twentieth century urban kid from the streets, Danny Manzi will win your heart and challenge your sense of right and wrong.

A boy with a philosopher’s soul and an intellect to match, Danny’s outlook on life is forged in a sterile relationship with his mother and the illicit love of a young novitiate.

This remarkable story, told from Danny’s point of view has been called “uncomfortable” and “disturbing” by some, but “hilarious” and “spot on” by others.

First in a trilogy, The Eight-Block Rule chronicles Danny’s life from the time he is eight until he is twelve.
Once you meet Danny Manzi, you will never look at boys quite the same way again.

Peter discusses the events of the day including why “American Sniper” is such a success and how hypocritical Hollywood is as they laud “Taken 3″ but decry “American Sniper” as a movie about a killer.  Needless to say, Peter takes the hypocrites apart limb by limb…just to maintain the violence thing.

Eric Holder famously said we are a nation of cowards who refuse to openly and honestly discuss race relations. I took him to task on these pages for his statement, I won’t walk over that real estate again. The same charge however could be leveled at the general population with more credibility than Holder’s when it comes to lesbian/homosexual relations, not between or among themselves, but gays versus those who consider same sex relationships to be immoral.

That discussion forces the issue out of the bedroom and into the living room where children are introduced to a mindset and culture which not only denies such relationships are immoral, but actually attempts to make them more moral than heterosexual relationships. Gays, to simplify and congregate the more appropriate descriptions, will have us believe it is all about pure love between them while heterosexual relationships are portrayed as often being rather violent affairs of penetration. Gay relationships are beautiful while heterosexual relations are simply lustful, somewhat animalistic endeavors.

The hypocrisy is mind-numbing especially in light of some very real dialogue on the subject with a homosexual. It may not be the definitive word, but it is very real nonetheless. The conversation was reported here before, but not in the present context. The short version is a friend of a friend finally revealed himself to be homosexual. It wasn’t a matter of being sexually attracted to the friend, it was a cry for help that could not be offered for the futility of making it. He wasn’t going to change, he couldn’t. I’ll call him Bill who one day decided to tell Joe everything. They’d been friends since childhood. Bill was even married for a short time. But when he spilled his guts to Joe, it was an outpouring of grief over being trapped in a lifestyle he both hated and needed. Bill told Joe that his days were filled looking for men with whom to have sex. He said he was completely ruled by his genitals. He lost jobs because the urge was so overwhelming he could not concentrate on anything else. The bombshell came when Bill told Joe virtually all the homosexuals he knew were the same way. Moreover, the very idea of a monogamous relationship was completely antithetical to his realities. Again, Bill told Joe he believed most homosexuals felt the same way.

The debate I suppose rages on whether or not gays and lesbians are born the way they are or whether they acquire their proclivities over time, but it seems if Bill is right, and the general sense of lesbianism and homosexuality originates in the mind and is then concentrated below the equator, one can understand the need to justify their activities which in doing so would in theory make it easier to satisfy their cravings. When a product or in this case activity is roundly decried by society, the fanaticism necessary to foist it on the people who find it reprehensible and in most cases disgusting is almost religious. Like crazy Muslims, the gay and lesbian movement attempts to force the world into changing what it knows to be true and real, that homosexuality and lesbianism are inherently wrong just as are stealing, murder and a host of other immoral activities. For what is morality if not following a set of rules which we know to be correct?

It is legitimate to ask, “Who is anyone to determine what is right and wrong?” Certainly not men or women. History is replete with examples of how men and women have twisted and perverted the notion. If not men and women, then who? We can only conclude God is the creator of our societal system, the one that actually works if adhered to purposefully.

From the time of Moses we have lived pretty much within a system of ten rules which not only define our culture, but set the standard for all humanity. And if you’re not happy with the Ten Commandments you have natural law which tells us unequivocally there is the necessity for relations between the male and female of the species or the species dies. Are there aberrations and anomalies? Of course, but they are the exception to the rule, they cannot be otherwise for the same reason.

We have seen what happens to a people when the nuclear family is trivialized. It does not take a trained sociologist to observe the outcome on a society which treats marriage like a political tool to make a set of people who fervently want their lifestyle to be legitimized feel good about themselves. The equation doesn’t work, everyone, including gays and lesbians knows this. There is no way that square peg will ever be pounded into a triangular hole. All of society would be better served if those with a moral backbone stood straight and tall and said in unison, “No, no, marriage is not an institution for gays and lesbians, nor is the family unit. What works is a father, mother and children.” We all know this to be true, there is no real debate to be had.

This matter has now boiled over as a result of many states, at the behest of their citizens, banning same sex marriages. The Supreme Court will hear the matter on petitions brought to it as a result of lower court rulings, specifically a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth District which according to “upheld bans on marriage or marriage-recognition in Kentucky (Bourke v. Beshear), Michigan (DeBoer v. Snyder), Ohio (Obergefell v. Hodges), and Tennessee (Tanco v. Haslam).” In the end it may become a states’ rights issue for political and constitutional purposes, but it will be a signal as to what we as a society have become, a people of principles or a people of political correctness.

There is intrinsic value in morality, it must not be set aside to satisfy a political end or sexual urge.

Growing up in Utica, New York, my brothers, friends and I learned two lessons very quickly, don’t believe anything you hear from anyone and if threatened, hit the other guy first, fast and hard. You may think such cynicism and reactive violence would not serve a boy growing into manhood very well, but you would be wrong. From that belief system sprung an element of respect for each other. One would not try to con another because one understood the other wouldn’t be conned as he assumed from the beginning the con was on, always on. The idea of threatening one another also fell flat, for to make threats invited a brutal reaction immediately. Besides, Italians don’t threaten, they come at you out of nowhere which engendered a kind of built-in wariness. It all worked out pretty well until someone decided to violate those very simple rules which garnered him both a bad reputation and innumerable beatings.

So it is with Representative Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) who today threatened the Republican party that should they defund Barack Obama’s illegal immigration actions, the repercussions would be disastrous.

“Let me tell you something,” he said, “the fruits of your action today will cause only anger and outrage, and the mobilization of an immigrant community throughout this nation that will be the death knell to the future of your party as a national institution.”

Were he a kid growing up in Utica during my era, he would have been beaten to a pulp for threatening us. And so he should be today, politically that is. Mr. Gutierrez is clearly Hispanic first and American last. His interests are only for a segment of society which is here illegally, deserves nothing and should be packed up and sent back to their native lands, Gutierrez with them.

The Republicans should pull a Utica on him. They should blister him openly, hotly and immediately by stating the obvious, Gutierrez is a punk who shoots off his mouth recklessly in an attempt to con the nation into accepting millions of illegals, people who have flouted our laws and routinely spit in our faces by continuing to flood across our borders with impunity. Gutierrez’s goal is as obvious as he is, to fundamentally transform the country into one ruled by Hispanics. In that way his power and the power of his ethnic clones will be cemented. Finally, he, along with people like Barack Obama and Eric Holder will have their day punishing the white conquerors by enslaving them to a system they created themselves and allowed to be handed over to those who abused it for the purpose stated herein.

But America still has a chance to set things right by adhering to the Constitution and enforcing the immigration laws even if it means segmenting out those who are here illegally and sending them home, all 20 million of them. If we are not a nation of laws which everyone must abide by, then we are nothing. This isn’t a matter of humanitarianism, it is a matter of fundamental fairness, something all thinking Americans understand.

This is not a racial screed with an aim toward denying anyone the opportunity to come to America, work hard, better themselves and their families. It is a warning that if one part of society can get away with wholesale violations of its laws, then the rest of society will find a way to demand the same right. That attitude most assuredly will bring the United States to its knees and then no one will be safe, not whites, browns or blacks. Without law and adherence to the law, we have anarchy. If Gutierrez thinks his people will be safe once in control, he is dead wrong and awfully naïve. Once Americans, like any people would do, find themselves without law, they will be fighting with each other, taking by force from whoever has wealth, but not distributing it to those without, that isn’t human nature. They will do what all people do, keep whatever they steal for themselves. The strong, not any particular ethnic or racial group, will not only survive, they will thrive. And if Mr. Gutierrez has not noticed, history indicates quite clearly that the world has been dominated by those of Western European descent for thousands of years, they will not go quietly into darkness. In other words, you want a war? You will have one, a war you cannot win.

Do not threaten from a position of weakness, that is one of the first rules of the street. The “anger and outrage” Gutierrez says will come from the millions of illegals in this country will pale in comparison to the anger and outrage he is stirring up among the legitimate citizens who live here. Perhaps Mr. Gutierrez should play back the tape of Obama’s statement to Republicans just after he took office the first time, allow a paraphrase, “Elections have consequences, you lost, and you lost big.” Gutierrez and his party are in no position to threaten anyone especially since it appears the Democrat party is the one poised for an ignominious extinction.

Clearly, Barack Obama checked out of the war on terror before he ever took office, but now he has checked out of world affairs as well. From the very start of his presidency he has whitewashed the most evil actions on the part of Muslims, the infamous “workplace violence” label he applied to the terrorist murders at Fort Hood says it all. In other cases he has actually taken the Muslims’ side against our own e.g. the grand apology tour in which he as much as admitted we are in fact the “great Satan”. So it should come as no surprise that he, Biden, Kerry and Holder never made it to the unity march in Paris on Sunday, January 11, 2015, an event in reaction to the slaughter of seventeen French citizens in three separate attacks in and around Paris last week.

What does that say to the world about the United States? It says we are weaker now than we’ve been since the War of 1812. But it also says Obama is the most reckless man to occupy the White House in American history.

It is time for a change to the Constitution on a fundamental level which allows for the people to recall a president, in effect throw him out of office on a no-confidence vote. Impeachment is too rigid for actual use in situations where the chief executive is, if not actively and illegally pursuing the destruction of the country, is accomplishing the same thing through passivity equaling malfeasance. For the first time in modern history, America is not at the forefront of confronting pure evil.

Barack Obama is indifferent to America’s position in the community of nations. That is now cemented in the world’s consciousness, but his indifference is not a function of disinterest, it is a function of his desire to bring America to its knees. He harbors a seething hatred for the United States as it is the antithesis of his socio/political philosophy. It rankles him that the nation has withstood his passive assault on the Constitution and his abuse of executive power, the more so as he was slapped in the face by the voting public in 2010 and in 2014. He has been repudiated, and for a megalomaniac like him, repudiation on such an overwhelming scale increases his hatred for the country, especially its white citizens, for on them he places all the blame for everything he sees as wrong throughout our history. He wants revenge, and as the president with a weak Congress, he is taking it.

As the rest of the world looks on and wonders what is happening in America, we know. We spoke loudly and certainly in November 2014, but our dilemma is not just with Barack Obama, it is with the political class in this country. When the world finally comes to understand the same thing, America will no longer be a safe place to live.

The political class is out of touch with Americans, so much so they flail around, pontificate, make speeches and do nothing. Their lives are filled with angst over the next television appearance or late night interview. And when they are not worrying about being in the public eye, they worry about how they will get reelected for the two they believe run hand in hand. There is no time for pursuing the interests of the nation insofar as it may take away from their primary purpose: reelection.

The world is going to notice sooner or later that America is actually leaderless, its system broken and nonfunctioning. A weak, pointless, aimless society with divisions running as deep as any that split us apart before the Civil War is, in the contemporary era, a target. Our enemies are legion and growing stronger while our allies are weaker than we are. China, Russia, the myriad Muslim states, South American countries like Venezuela, even Mexico which is defeating us as we watch, they all have a stake in the demise of the United States as a worldwide power.

What is our response? Jeb Bush and/or Mitt Romney, two men who most assuredly, if elected, will keep us weak and hated by the world for it. Whether they like it or not, the world needs a powerful America, they will see the abandonment of that power as a dereliction of duty and they will hate us even more for that. No respect means no regard and when there is no regard for the nation expected to police the world, an automatic vacuum is created. It is only a matter of time until the vacuum is filled by another country or set of countries.

The United States will never be universally loved because it is impossible no matter how often we send aid to other countries, respond to natural disasters or make the foolish attempt at trying to set people free. But we can be universally feared. Politicians whose policies lean in the direction of being the world’s friend instead of the world’s most powerful military and economic force are completely out of touch with the realities, Barack Obama has given us the object lesson in that regard.

If we can withstand two more years of the worst presidency in our history hopefully we will have wised up sufficiently to never again elect someone to office for the color of their skin or their gender, but for their devotion to the country, promise of adherence to the strictest interpretation of the Constitution and their displayed abilities to cut away at an out-of-control government which stands athwart its citizens’ rights and freedoms.
