Same Old SEIU
By Dave Bego
Times have changed, but the SEIU’s motives, and the means and tactics used to accomplish these motives remain the same. The SEIU’s ultimate goal is to achieve its agenda of destroying America’s free enterprise system and replacing it with socialism/communism. As seen in recent actions across the country, it is apparent the SEIU is still intent on fundamentally changing America, as is its cohort in the White House, President Obama. The President continues to create a welfare state and to attempt to overwhelm the American economy. In his State of the Union Address, Obama’s middle-class pitch made it very clear; his agenda is to continue to pit Americans against each other. Together, the President and the SEIU are intent on collapsing the American system. They fervently believe that their combined O-Cloward-Piven strategy is working, and that such a strategy is what is best for America and the rest of the world. [more...]
De Blasio Facing the Storm
By Lowell Ponte
"This could be a storm the likes of which we have never seen before," said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio of the so-called Blizzard of 2015. Ideological efforts by progressives like de Blasio to centrally control everything are making our technologies and society dangerously vulnerable to natural and human-caused disruptions. Today, the progressive politics of centralized control are making us more vulnerable to other storms, whether from explosions on the sun or from terrorism. As with the Internet, the more we decentralize political power, the safer our future will be. [more...]
Are Americans too Detached?
By Bill Tatro
The American public feels more financially secure yet more economically detached in a new survey conducted by Bankrate.com. Unfortunately the only thing the survey proved was out-of-sight out-of-mind and the belief that others' misfortune is not my concern. Most remaining middle class people, when really pushed, will acknowledge the fallacy of the 5.6% unemployment rate, after all, the 92 million people not counted in the participation pool are real. If, however, the public is not reminded of manipulated numbers, then it is easier for them to accept a statement "the economy is improving, after all, the unemployment rate was 6.7% in December, a year earlier. Of course, 5.6% is certainly better than 6.7%." [more...]
Drones Over Security Zones
Sunday night the White House lawn turned into a circus as chaos erupted following the downing of an unidentified flying object. Not a UFO though, it turned out to be a kiddy drone. In fact, the drone found on the lawn, a quad-copter, currently ranks as one of the top 10 best-selling toys on Amazon. Quad-copter drones are growing in popularity thanks to the fact that they can typically be purchased for under $100. This even includes those with cameras. Meanwhile, larger drones can cost up to $1,000. The cost-friendly toy marketed drone found on the White House lawn is said to be able to fly up to 50 yards, meaning that it was easily launched from one of the many public parks surrounding the White House.

Free Community College - Is it Really Free?
Why do progressive socialists seek free community college for everyone? For starters, it's another entitlement program. They think it will be popular. Why would anyone want to turn down something "free" from the government? Free community college is also part of the progressive socialist's dream of cradle-to-grave social programs run by big government. Indeed, they think it will give big government more control over our lives. After all, many progressive socialists, socialists, Marxists, and others think big government and the elite who run big government should control the lives of citizens because citizens can't do it for themselves. Remember the well publicized comments about Obamacare and the stupidity of the American voter? [more...]
Is President Obama's Indifferent Leadership Making the USA Vulnerable to Our Enemies?
What are the consequences of President Obama's indifferent leadership on the world stage? What about America's position in the world? What is the real reason Speaker Boehner is inviting the Israeli Prime Minister to speak to Congress? Do any of the GOP's 2016 candidates – or the Republican leadership on the Hill - actually stand for anything – other than themselves? This – and much more – will be discussed by the POLITICAL INSIDERS. [more...]
