Ben Carson Has Been Anointed

Sunday, March 31st, 2013

Dr. Benjamin Carson went viral recently after he criticized Obamacare while President Obama was sitting just a few feet away. Republicans fell in love immediately, drooling over the prospect of finally getting a share of the black vote if Carson were to enter politics.

The reason I say that he has been anointed is because of the way Larry Kudlow reacted to Carson in the video below. Recently, Kudlow has been campaigning against the minimum wage. He is “outraged” at the appalling unemployment rate in the black community. And his solution is to eliminate the minimum wage, because as everybody knows, the way to help poor people is to slash their wages. Of course, as a high-ranking member of the Oligarchy, Kudlow’s solution to pretty much every problem is austerity for the small people.

So, as he interviewed Carson, Kudlow brought up the subject (at the 2:30 mark in the video.) But Carson didn’t have the Kudlow Catechism down, and gave the wrong answer. Instead of austerity, he recommended spending more money on education. I was thinking, “Duck Ben! Kudlow is going to blow your head off!” But instead, Kudlow genuflected. I could hardly believe it. Kudlow didn’t show such deference even for Mitt Romney in the heat of the 2012 presidential campaign. In fact, Kudlow slammed both Romney and Ryan to the concrete during the convention.

Carson could easily raise money for a presidential run. The Republicans are already worshiping him. But Carson is a bit naive. When discussing the 30% high-school drop-out rate (at 3:30), he says:

“This is the Information Age, the age of technology. There’s just no way we can afford to lose 30% of our individuals.”

But we can, and quite easily. That’s the whole point of our mass-immigration policy: to replace us lazy, stupid, uneducated American citizens with “magical” immigrants who can do everything better than we can. The Oligarchy has been ruthlessly replacing black workers with immigrants on a mass scale for decades now. Note to Carson: catch a clue.

Kudlow thinks that lower wages will encourage employers to hire more blacks. But even if it did, where would they live? Who can pay the rent on Chinese-style wages of $2 per hour? New York City already has a huge homeless problem because of high rents. Perhaps Kudlow would have them live in cages, as they do in the libertarian Shangri-La of Hong Kong. I am not exaggerating, I wrote about the cage people in my book.

It’s All Your Fault

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

Thomas L. Friedman’s job at the New York Times is to make you feel like being kicked out of the middle class is your fault. From this column:

“…median incomes are falling, inequality is rising and high unemployment remains persistent. How to adapt? It will require more individual initiative.”

See? It’s your fault for being lazy. It’s got nothing to do with the globalization- and mass-immigration policies that Friedman pushes.

The Left acts like “tax cuts for the rich” are the only driver of inequality. And that’s what I call The Big Lie of the Left. By championing off-shoring and mass-immigration, the Left is equally culpable along with the Right for the pulverization of the middle class.

1,031,631 Legal Immigrants in 2012

Sunday, March 24th, 2013

With all the media coverage of an imminent immigration deal in Congress, you would think that the latest stats from DHS would get more publicity. But they won’t; it is a forbidden topic in the corporate media.

But that doesn’t change the fact that 1,031,631 legal immigrants came into the USA in 2012. And we are on pace to set another all-time record for the decade of the 2010s. See the charts on my immigration page.

While the last jobs report delivered an upside surprise, the black unemployment rate remained unchanged at an appalling 13.8%. Why wouldn’t our black president help a brother out and ease back on the immigration a bit? Answer: because Obama is just another in a long-line of neo-liberal presidents. “Black” and “Democratic” are just marketing angles. Obama has done nothing whatsoever to change the immigration policy:

Immigration-Bush-Obama

So, if you are black and unemployed, there is a good chance that you will never work again – ever. No matter what color the president is. The number of people clutching their resumes in line at job interviews is just going get longer and longer. And if you are over 50 years old, just forget about it. In fact, move to a civilized nation, like Canada or Australia. A place that isn’t trying to be the next China with a massive population and rock-bottom wages.

Russia’s Role in the American Civil War

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

The great thing about U.S. history is that there are so many fascinating things to learn. Why is that? Because quite a lot of events have been falsified or tossed down the memory hole for propaganda purposes. For example, I have been alive for 53 years, have read numerous books about the Civil War, watched all the movies, and never once did I come across the fact that Russian war ships patrolled our coasts during 1863-1864. From Wikipedia:

“In 1863, during the American Civil War, the Russian Navy’s Atlantic and Pacific Fleets wintered in the American ports of New York and San Francisco respectively. Some historians credit this visit as a major factor in deterring France and England from entering the war on the Confederate side.”

A special educational DVD of Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln will be sent to all middle schools and high schools in the USA. Of course, the film does not mention the Russians. True, Lincoln had a narrow focus, but in real life President Lincoln sent his wife to New York City to greet the Russians, who were the toast of the town.

In the near future, I expect this tidbit of history will remain in the memory hole. Russia has lots of oil reserves that it refuses to sell to our oil companies and will likely be demonized until it agrees to be carpetbagged.

Think the Earth Revolves Around the Sun?

Guess again. It’s a little more complicated than that:
