Peter crosses swords with the political class covering subjects like the military’s disapproval of Obama, John Boehner’s words being equal to his actions and Luis Guitierrez’s laughable threat to Republicans.

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.

Peter says it first.

Fox Network, not Fox News, has two new bosses, Dana Walden and Gary Newman. First, it is never a good idea to have two bosses regardless of their understanding when it comes to power sharing. Second, these two are apparently so removed from reality they are foisting on the American viewing public a program that cannot succeed. Mr. Murdoch should be scratching his head since the appointment of Walden and Newman must have been preceded with a great deal of promise much like Barack Obama only to be dashed once the real work began.

Walden and Newman are putting all their eggs in a basket called, “Empire”, a series about a black mogul and his wife etc. He is apparently at the top of the recording industry and from there wields the power of a Mafia Don. It’s a terrible premise from the start. The recording industry is on its face. Technology, especially the Internet have turned the entire industry upside down. The amount of pirating that goes on effectively reduces the entire business to a kind of “What’s the use?” status. The latest statistics bear out the industry’s malaise. If there is a mogul in the business, he or she made their fortune long ago and are presently riding on the fruits of their investments rather than their contemporary profits. Besides, how much power can a recording industry mogul have? It’s not like this guy can wave his hand and have the world drop to its knees because he is capable of restricting the free flow of a necessary commodity. It’s a stupid record company, if it went out of business tomorrow, no one would know much less care.

There is an additional flaw to the reasoning behind “Empire”, it speaks to a small segment of the population, too small to be of significant interest beyond an aging hip-hop generation.

The problem with people like Walden and Newman is their tendency to buck the realities in hopes of breaking out, being noticed and commensurately rewarded. They actually believe they are doing something that has never been done before. Truth is, no one will be watching “Empire” because it is simply another bad copy of those shows which have already been done to death. If we wanted another “Dynasty” or “Dallas” someone could easily press restart and get them, but no one has for a very good reason: Been there, done that, am sick of it all.

It is laughable to assume a show will be popular simply because it features a black dynasty in a business that supposedly makes a great deal of money when the reality is, the industry is struggling to survive. Change the people around and all you have is another version of myriad shows with the same premise, all boring to tears. How many times can you watch Romeo and Juliet before you get the idea that there are such things as star-crossed lovers who pay with their lives for love? The iterations are mind-numbing as is the concept of “Empire”.

There is another aspect of Walden’s and Newman’s incredibly bad judgment, television as we have come to understand it is dead. Like newspapers and magazines, the industry is passé. It can no longer compete with the advancing technologies. If you want my attention, you’d better give it to me via the Worldwide Web, and you’d better give me what I want, choices, so I can pick and choose not only what I want to watch, but, depending on my mood, have it tailored to interest me on a personal level. Hackneyed premises with mindless, pointless story lines will no longer do. Even if the show is masterfully written and performed, it won’t survive. Like “Mad Men”, as good as it was in the beginning, it flailed and failed after awhile becoming so ridiculous it offended the most primitive minds.

The first question any television executive should ask himself or herself when considering a new show is, “Who cares?” The next thing is to ask the viewing public the same thing. In this case, it’s almost a sure bet the answer will be, “I don’t.” FOX should fire both Walden and Newman for their spectacular inability to do something relevant.

Always first, always right.  Check us out.

Some years ago I wrote an article the subject of which was Islam’s ultimate demise. My reasoning was based on a philosophical/religious point of view that Islam is fundamentally flawed as a faith insofar as it defies logic, if logic can be considered an adjunct of faith. God as God and Creator would not, that is not to say could not, but would not authorize the destruction of that which He created by any other means than His own hand. And He certainly would not authorize one set of His people to force another set into believing in Him in any other way than their free will designs. Thus, Islam is not only the antithesis of sound religion, it is flagrant blasphemy by any means of interpretation.

Christianity on the other hand assumes a God of love. Think about that for a minute and in that minute you will come to understand more fully why Islam blasphemes the God of us all. To pervert the essence of God is to deny His complete and total authority over the universe and all that is within and without it. Such a perversion separates us from the true God in a way that curses mankind as it blasphemes the sacrifice of His own Son. Such a thing cannot happen. The sacrifice of Jesus Christ can never be set aside, not by man and not by God Himself. Any attempt, whether willful or through ignorance of the truth condemns those who perpetrate such actions to eternal damnation.

On a more practical side of the matter, Islam is doomed because it will push itself to the brink, anathematizing its most violent adherents and by extension its rank and file. People are fast becoming fed up with Islam. The murders in Paris and the backlash over them have cast an eye on all Muslims, innocent and guilty. Adherents will ultimately find themselves unwanted anywhere in the civilized world. They will be chased from countries which once welcomed them and be relegated to those regions where they are more or less the indigenous people. There they will starve for that which keeps them alive as sure as the sun rises in the morning, will run out or no longer be useful, that is oil.

Where will they find allies? For what reasons would any nation ally itself with them? Russia doesn’t want them. China will use them, but never trust them. India, even with its enormous Muslim population will not tolerate them much longer. Europe will expel them sooner or later. And the United States will never be a haven where they are welcomed as it has welcomed immigrants in the past.

Rooted in the Middle East as they are, Muslims will find themselves alone and friendless, the enemies of all. Their oil will not be enough to sustain them and they have little else to trade. The end will come when they obtain nuclear weapons at which time the world will utterly destroy them even if in the process it commits suicide.

Islamic leaders should be aware of the above scenario. If they are not, they live in a cloistered fantasy world in which their faith lulls them into a belief that the twelfth Imam will come to the rescue. He will not come. He doesn’t exist. They will be broken.

Were I an advisor to the power-elite of the Muslim world I would tell them frankly that they must begin policing themselves, reining in those sects so devoted to murder in the name of God. If they don’t, the world will do it for them.

Barack Obama will not be president much longer. The mistake that was making him president will fade into the background as a new president with the support of the American people will finally take this fight to the heart of Islam. The rules of war will be happily suspended, there will be no prisoners taken, only death and destruction on a scale heretofore unknown to the human race. That is how desperate the world is beginning to feel as a result of Islam’s murderous rampage. It is coming, and when it begins, it will not stop. Muslims should be shaking in fear for their day is about to dawn poorly.

  24. Webster voted for Rep. Dan Webster (R-Fla.)
  25. Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) voted for himself

Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who this web site has mentioned as a possible future president, apparently missed his flight due to weather and was conveniently prevented from voting. He stated however, ”Had our flight not been canceled, I would have voted for our conference nominee, John Boehner.” Our estimate of Mr. Gowdy has been significantly diminished as a result of that statement.
