Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher once stated, “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.” The fallacy of progressive socialists is that they believe such to not be true. It is their belief that there is a constant revenue stream emanating from the so called “wealthy” to fund the social utopianism and they leverage the mantra of class warfare in order to achieve those ends.

The liberal progressive leftists are very clever in their manipulation of language such as fair share, fairness, income inequality, and economic patriotism. Combined with a complicit liberal progressive media they are able to promulgate their message usually without any real policy challenge. Current case in point is the proposal by one avowed socialist running for the presidency, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. He has proposed a 90 percent income tax on “top earners.” When Senator Obama was running for the presidency in 2008 he claimed it better when we “spread the wealth around.” Of course these two astute gents are referring to the top one percent who are currently paying nearly 40 percent of overall income taxes in the United States. The estimate is that the top 10 percent of wage earners in America pay nearly 70 percent of all income taxes while there is almost 50 percent who only pay 3 percent — many receiving refunds.

This is set amid the backdrop of what is happening in Greece. There the left wing government of young Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has just defaulted on a 1.6 billion Euro (approximately $1.66 billion) loan from the International Monetary Fund. And on Sunday, based upon PM Tsipras’ encouragement, Greece voted no to any austerity measures to assist in regaining its economic stability. This is the dream world of progressive socialist economics in that we can spend all the money we want in order to promise everything to everyone and someone else is responsible for the supplying of the monetary resources to bring the pipe dreams to fruition.
If you thought sequestration was over, you're wrong.

As ISIS continues its march across the Middle East, as Russia's Putin becomes more aggressive and as the Chinese continue to build military islands in the ocean, the United States is planning to cut 40,000 more troops from the Army by 2017. More from Reuters:
The U.S. Army plans to cut 40,000 troops over the next two years, affecting all its domestic and foreign posts, USA Today reported on Tuesday, citing a plan it said was due to be announced this week.
For what it's worth, Putin put 40,000 Russian troops on full alert for military exercises in March.

What could possibly go wrong?

US only training 60 Syrian “moderates” to fight Islamic State, far below expectations

US only training 60 Syrian “moderates” to fight Islamic State, far below expectations
A previous report said: “The main problem thus far has been finding enough Syrian recruits untainted by extremist affiliations or disqualified by physical or other flaws.” And so currently there are only 60 men receiving this training. No one, however, is willing to examine the larger implications of this.

The Pentagon is pouring money into […]

Pamela Geller, WND Column: Gang of Shariah stooges at New York Times

Gang of Shariah stooges at New York Times

Exclusive: Pamela Geller notes newspaper’s hypocrisy when printing religious issues

For years, the New York Times has adhered to and enforced the strict code of Islamic law. Bowed and cowed, the Times will not violate the vicious and archaic blasphemy laws under the Shariah, as was proven yet again last week.
The Times will not criticize or mock Islam, no matter how high the death toll or how gruesome the jihad. But Christianity? For the Times, mocking Christianity is a regular feature.
This week, true to form, the New York Times ran a lavish, full-color image of a portrait of Pope Benedict XVI made out of condoms....

TEXAS: New legislation against ‘foreign law’ is necessary to halt spread of sharia (Islamic) law


Roadside signs with quotes from scripture alongside Texas Highway 71 are a reminder that this is God’s country. And to most folks in this part of the country, that would be the Judeo-Christian God.

PRI  (According to designated terrorist group CAIR’s statistics – nearly always a gross exaggeration of the facts), Islam is the largest non-Christian denomination in the state. For most Texans, that is a problem, a big problem.

RTR4Y3N5Early this year, the Texas state house in Austin hosted its 7th annual Texas Muslim Capitol Day. It’s an opportunity for Texas Muslims to visit state government headquarters. A small but vocal group of protesters showed up. One of them even commandeered the podium during the day’s proceedings.


“I proclaim the name of the Lord Jesus Christ over the capitol of Texas! I stand against Islam and the false prophet Mohammed!” a woman shouted into the microphone. “Islam will never dominate the United States and by the grace of God it will not dominate Texas!”
