About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

Removing The Influence Of BO, de Blasio, & Sharpton Is Key To Solving Race Problems

"The (anti-police) rhetoric this time is not from the usual suspects, but from the Mayor of New York City, the Attorney General of the United States, & even the President.  It emboldens criminals & sends a message that every encounter a black person has with a police officer is one to be feared." - Howard Safir, former NYC Police Commissioner from 1996 to 2000 under Mayor Rudy Giuliani, writing online for Time magazine on December 21, 2014. 
The Thin Blue Line Emblem used by law enforcement to commemorate fallen officers.
Even the least discerning among us must sense that BO has raised the stakes for America since the 2014 midterm elections with his executive actions regarding 1) the biggest rewrite of U.S. immigration policy in decades that removes the threat of deportation for millions of illegal immigrants & 2) the normalization of relations with Cuba that will do nothing but aid the Castro brothers who will wind up with any tourist or trade money as the general population remains tyrannized.  In addition BO has escalated the release of prisoners from the Guantanamo prison & has consistently worked to harm race relations during his entire term as former Police Commissioner Safir describes above. 
These are not the type of issues we faced with Jimmy Carter when he told us to put on a sweater in the winter, raise the thermostat setting in the summer, & comply with voluntary wage and price controls – in short the good old days.
After becoming Mayor of NYC in 2014 Bill de Blasio joined BO @ the top of the most committed anti-American communist leaders elected to high office by We the People of the United States.  Such politicians @ this level clearly plan to confiscate the wealth created in America through any one of several methods – the most stunning involving the takeover of the military & police.  Think NoKo or Cuba except with infinitely more wealth to confiscate - & that is why the focus is on America & not Darfur for instance.
However, de Blasio never thought things could go wrong this quickly for him but the murders of two NYC police officers on December 20 jeopardizes his plans to make everyone in NYC wards of the city except for a very few elites. 
After all in November 2013 de Blasio had won the Mayor's race 72% to 28% after clearly campaigning on anti-police priorities such as reining in the "stop & frisk" police technique that had been so successful in cleaning up NYC crime.  In addition de Blasio had campaigned on raising taxes on high income earners, stopping the practice of closing low performing schools, & slowing the growth of charter schools.  The new mayor was sworn in by Bill Clinton with Hillary on stage nodding & clapping approvingly in a sign of things they hope to see nationally.
Recently de Blasio & BO along with their joint top aide & adviser, Al Sharpton, had all encouraged the on going anti-police protests centered around the grand jury decisions to not indict policemen in the Mike Brown death in Ferguson, Missouri last August & the Eric Garner death last July in Staten Island.  Because of these protests New Yorkers have had to tolerate bridge closings, department store "die-ins", & street blockages – all unsafe incidents themselves that could produce violence.  As the protests became more hate filled – calling for the death of police officers – a deranged man in Baltimore was motivated by these events & came to NYC & murdered the aforementioned two NYC policemen.
Now if a man has a killer dog on a leash & he unleashes the dog from time to time to kill babies do you blame the killer dog or do you hold the man responsible who let the dog loose?  BO's, de Blasio's, & Sharpton's support of the protesters represent the man with the leash in this analogy.  Turgot answered the question over 200 years ago – "One ought to execute the author & not the project."
This is the issue for reasonable people in America (& particularly NYC) to decide as the stakes for America keep getting higher as BO's term in office winds down.  We are desperate for leadership that can bring peace & stop those intent on destroying more of America than they already have.  De Blasio & Patrick Lynch (President of The Patrolmen's Benevolent Association of the City of New York) have informally agreed to stop arguing until the two slain police officers are buried – but de Blasio's erstwhile pal Sharpton will have none of it & has continued to egg on the protesters. 
The continuance of the protests, as Sharpton (& BO & de Blasio) prefers will inevitably lead to the killing of both more blacks & police officers thereby keeping the cycle going.  Until people on both sides can get passed emotions & try to see the points of view of those on the other side there will be no end to the disorder. 
Following the principles of the Constitutional Convention each side should appoint delegates to a convention who are thought to be capable of dedicating themselves to determine the kind of society they wish to live in.  Getting these type of people into the world of ideas may quickly result in any number of solutions that will clearly distinguish right from wrong thereby ending the strife & accordingly exposing BO, de Blasio, & Sharpton as the agitators who are causing all of the trouble.
The best thing that can happen is for blacks to realize BO & by extension de Blasio & Sharpton have been working against them all along.  The sooner that blacks discard these agitators from their lives the better for everyone.
For instance, if BO's recovery had been as strong as the average Reagan-Clinton recoveries, per capita GDP would be $6,678 higher & 15.8 million more Americans would be @ work today.  -  Source Phil Gramm & Mike Solon. 
With regard to blacks Steve Moore reports that the median black household income fell by nearly $3,000 from June 2009 to June 2014 – all so called recovery years.  The BLS reports black unemployment in November was 11.1% & teenage black unemployment was 28.1%.
To help us all in this regard – black or white, Hispanic or Asian, man or woman, straight or homosexual – just ask yourself to name one of the policies, practices, or executive actions listed hereinbefore that will help anyone in America?  Even make it wider - is there one initiative that BO has ever proposed that would help businesses grow & invest so that high quality jobs would be created?
BO has clever distinctive techniques that he uses on all of us – for blacks it is to keep them discontented with their perceived circumstances so that they are made to feel they are victims in a white world where everything is stacked against them.  The above results show just how ineffective BO has been in helping blacks & of course that is by design so that fifty years from now America will be facing the exact same problems as today & a hustler like BO will be there to carry on with identical deleterious results.  BO's only fear is that blacks catch on in which case it is game over for him & people like de Blasio & Sharpton.
But BO, de Blasio, & Sharpton have come too far in their destructive pursuit of evil.  Their plan is to demoralize the police & military so the type of officers who were murdered in cold blood on December 20 will leave the force & new people of their quality do not replace them.  BO & de Blasio could never force a takeover of the country as long as the military & police are served by men of the caliber of the two officers who were slain in Brooklyn on December 20.  But when enough of the replacements are of the caliber of the current protesters you will have a condition ripe for take over of America.
It could be a long road to travel before this is over but it doesn't have to be - as described above.

Paul was three when his father, a policeman, was murdered in 1921. 


  1. Doug –excellent analysis. Thanks also for advising us of an opportunity: state facts about how BO and Leftist policies are damaging the Blacks and poor economically. This can lead to “game over” for blanket Black approval for Leftists (and even reverse the movement to Socialism). It is up to us to make this case succinctly.

    Regarding the “war on police”: Anyone reasonably intelligent person (majority of US), if provided with clear facts and open to the facts, without an agenda, would NOT promote or perpetuate the myth that NYPD, and cops in general, unjustly profile and attack blacks. Why then were De Blasio, Sharpton, Holder, BO promoting and perpetuating this myth?

    The answer –is yes – as you state to nationalize the state and local police forces. That can occur via executive order IF the chaos against the police continues to escalate. This would be a major prerequisite to a full socialist takeover of the US. This is occurring right in from of our eyes. It is also up to us to state the obvious to our friends, family members, etc … so we can all peacefully protest this policy and elect leaders to reverse course.

    Who can help us in this regard –Bill O’Reilly can. He was out on vacation but on Dec 22 called in and called for De Blasio to resign right away. Let us write to Bill and advise him of the large goal the Left has - that is way greater than police turmoil.


  2. Doug: this post covers so much ground I need to follow up regarding what has reportedly been underway – DHS arming itself to an extent that may be blatantly excessive.

    Therefore, rather than depending on a long term strategy of traditional local and state police transitioning to a different mindset set (ex those against stop and frisk in NYC), BO may have an alternative strategy with potential to be applied more sooner. Perhaps already under way past few years is a transition of the DHS into another role – a national police force; yes – the DHS may be able to soon step in and run state and local police forces after BO issues an executive order to nationalize the police. Timing for this executive order may be much sooner than many think – maybe even in months, not years. Our action then is to demand our Congressmen and Senators closely monitor the arming of DHS and defund this arming ASAP!

    Excellent sources for DHS ‘excessive’ militarization are from IBD below:
    Ex IBD covered this 2 years ago and stated:

    “To what purpose is a civilian agency arming itself to the teeth at the same time the administration has been making war on the Second Amendment ….”

    And …

    March 2013:
    “ Buys: Fifteen members of Congress have written a letter to the Department of Homeland Security demanding to know why the federal agency is buying so many rounds of ammunition. We'd like to know too……”

  3. I totally agree that periodically some Congressmen and press (ex IBD) address a critical issue then do not timely follow up. Meanwhile the Left then gains more momentum. Imagine if issue of DHS growing militarization was covered in 2013 as Ferguson was in 2014. There would be greater awareness of the Left’s end game of nationalization of police and military. As a result the chaos we have now with de Blasio and NYPD would likely be tamer.

    It is very possible that 2015 will result in a very significant policy direction regarding police and military control. Did De Blasio overplay his cards? Right now we can’t say. Why? The NY Times is attacking the NYPD for being complainers and calls them out, demands they get back to work at full pace. Being reported is that arrests of minor crimes and tickets have gone way down. This may be working to De Blasio’s benefit therefore. That is unless those on the Right explain the police spend exorbitant times now policing demonstrations which automatically decrease minor crime arrests and parking tickets.

    A wild card will be Bill O’Reilly’s return from vacation Monday. I hope he will launch a courageous demand that De Blasio resign and continue every day until he does ( I hope Fox News allows him ). To be successful, Bill must at least identify a ‘likely’ or ‘possible’ De Blasio agenda – increase chaos to the point where the public will support an executive order to nationalize the police and military (with a ready powerful DHS to run the show – punish, dismiss police who do not follow ‘party’ line and recruit replacements). Bill can do a great job in digging up events to support this hypothesis –from DHS excessive militarization, De Blasio connections to Communists in Nicaragua and Cuba. We need Bill to read Rules for Radicals, educate him on Marxism and help him out. I may do this. Imagine if Bill gets to a point where he states ‘ I believe we have an attempt underway to launch a Marxist takeover of the US ; a prerequisite for this is total central government control of all police and miltary’.

    Several weeks ago Mark Levin stated on Hannity that the Left’s end goal was to nationalize the police force. But Levin is not O’Reilly. We need Bill for this one.
