With CNN and other Jurassic media outlets, touting great victories for so-called “gay rights,” which is actually just more lawlessness from the Obama regime, trampling on the federalism that the Founders so wisely created in our precious Constitution, it’s worth revisiting how we got here. Contrary to what we hear from cheerleaders from this social pathology, it is NOT the culmination of some grand ascent to the summit of human rights. Rather, it is the culmination of a decades long descent into the gutter.

As most readers of this site, and listeners to The Teri O’Brien Show  well know, the popular culture has been one of the most effective tools in the Left’s arsenal. They have used it very skillfully to attack traditional society in general and traditional marriage in particular, especially over the last twenty-five years. You may not know, though, that this strategy is not a happy accident for our left-wing friends. It is a deliberate calculated strategy, one laid out in the book 1990, After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90′s. It written by psychologist Marshall Kirk and Madison Avenue ad man Hunter Madsen, both Harvard grads, which is shocking, I know. The book was based on a 1987 article by these two schemers, published in the homosexual magazine, Guide. Think of it as Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals for the militant homosexual movement. They advise that homosexuals take six steps (you can read all six here), including desensitizing the public and portraying homosexuals as victims by using television and movies. Noting that Americans at that time spent on average 7 hours a day in front of the idiot box, they write about infecting our society with a casual attitude toward homosexuality without our even realizing that it’s happening. “Those hours open a gateway into the private world of straights, through which a Trojan horse might be passed.” Can you say “Will and Grace?” Even Joe Biden understands how effective that strategy has been. Being that he’s Joe “Three Letter Word JOBS” Biden, it was easy to pretend that he put his foot in his mouth again while saying so, when in reality he was just paving the way for Barack Obama, who only a couple of years ago was a homophobic hater who believed that marriage was an institution between one man and one woman, to announce that he had “evolved” in time for the November 2012 election.

Like the snakes in the grass they were, Kirk and Madsen note that the beginning of the plan, it must not be too scary, lest their plot be exposed.

“At least in the beginning”, they write, “we are seeking public desensitization and nothing more. We do not need and cannot expect full ‘appreciation’ or ‘understanding’ of homosexuality from the average America. You can forget about trying to persuade the masses that homosexuality is a good thing. But if you can only get them
to think that is just another thing, with a shrug of the shoulders, then your battle for legal and social rights is virtually won (emphasis mine)
. And to get to shoulder-shrug state, gays as a class must cease to appear mysterious, alien and contrary.”

Eventually “….by conversion [toward public acceptance of homosexuality] we mean something far more profoundly threatening to the American Way of Life, without which no truly  sweeping social change can occur. We mean conversion of the average American’s emotions, mind, and will, through a planned psychological attack, in the form of propaganda fed to the nation via the media.” (emphasis mine)

And did they ever succeed! So much so that we find ourselves living in a time when the sovereign state of Arizona tries to expand protection for religious liberty and ends up on the receiving end of a bullying and intimidation campaign that would make Tony Soprano proud. Who can blame Gov. Brewer for vetoing the religious freedom bill, in the face of the threats from corporate America, and even the NFL? She saw how the propagandists in the media distorted the truth about the bill, and she knows how it has played with low-information voters. Bumper Sticker - Ithaca - Coexist Can we really expect the sort of well-intentioned, but clearly addled, people who voluntarily affix “Mean People Suck,” and “Co-Exist” bumper stickers to their vehicles, people who have been conditioned for decades not to be “haters” to understand why so-called “marriage equality” is a bad idea? Do we expect them to appreciate how we got to the place where it could even be considered? They don’t realize that back in the late 60′s and early 70′s when people decided to shack up because they didn’t need “a piece of paper,” pretty soon that “piece of paper” would be as meaningless as they said it was. After “marriage” was destroyed, of course, it could mean whatever anybody wanted. They also don’t know that this derogation of the institution of marriage was taking place at the same time as this underhanded conspiracy to normalize homosexuality. The result? “I now pronounce you husband and husband.”

Unfortunately, it’s not just fluffy sitcoms where these devoted apparatchiks worked their black arts. In Part II, we’ll unpack notable examples of stunning fraud that the militant homosexual movement has perpetrated on not only the public, but even the U.S. Supreme Court.

America Survives Another Year, Annus Horribilus from Guest Commentator J.D. Longstreet

Cross-posted at Omega Option
Well, we have made another year without a complete meltdown.  Nevertheless, we are growing closer.   As every day passes we draw nearer that apocalyptic terminus.
We have reached the final few days of the year and it is customary, sort of, for folks to look back over all the bad and unusual things that occurred in the twelve months just ending.  But, honestly, I don’t want to drag them up again.  They were difficult enough to handle the first time through, so why punish ourselves, right?
If anything, 2013 established, beyond doubt, that Mr. Obama is intent upon presiding over a nation in  decline — and he insists on increasing the rate of acceleration of said declination.

But that doesn’t touch the lies, the deceit, the scandals, the abuse of power by the Executive Office, nor the assumption of dictatorial powers by the Chief Executive and on, and on, and on.  And I haven’t even mentioned OBAMACARE … yet
In fact, I’d like to look ahead.  I’m the sort who anticipates darn near everything.  I’m just wired that way.  No apologies for it.  I rather like to act in advance of an anticipated problem and to deal with it ahead of time and/or before it becomes a menace in one fashion or another.
Peeling back the layers of the future is most certainly a job for the clairvoyants, the fortune tellers and such.  I am neither.  No.  I’m more of what you might call — a worrier.    So believe me when I tell you I am mightily worried about next year, about 2014.
The US is currently reeling from the onslaught of socialism/communism led by our socialist-in-chief, B. H. Obama.  Mr. Obama is, at this writing, in the lovely state of Hawaii where, frankly, I wish he’d stay, sending us his resignation as a Christmas gift to the nation. 
Two things:  One — Mr. Obama does not share our low opinion of himself.  And second — Vice President Joe Biden is waiting in the wings to become President should Mr Obama step down.  (Yeah, it’s sorta like a double feature horror movie special at the local cinema, right?  Egads!)
Moving right along …
That socialism/communism thing, in the guise of health insurance for everyone, will still be with us next year.  Like an infection deep inside it will continue to destroy the tissue of America and will, over time, murder the country.
The problems with the roll out of Obamacare were just petty “stuff” compared to that which is coming in the close and distant future.  Those of you who have not turned your hand to insuring yourself under our new law are in for a bone rattling shock.  If you have an attorney on retainer, I suggest assigning him/her the job of signing you up to Obamacare – and paying him a bonus if he succeeds.
Small business owners who, up to now, have provided health insurance for their employees are going to learn they simply cannot afford it any longer and the millions of employees of small businesses in America are going to find themselves without insurance and then they, too,will be dealing with Obamacare.
It’s going to get downright ugly. 
Repeal of Obamacare will not happen in 2014.  We’ll have to have another election before there is even a possibility of a repeal of Obamacare. That election is coming up next November.
The President must take another shot at immigration reform or, as I like to call it – amnesty for illegal aliens. The democrats understand that with passage of immigration reform, they will secure, for themselves, the reins of government in the US for generations to come.
Oh, there is much, much, more but it’s just too depressing to touch on it.
One thing, however.  I can’t shake the feeling that the US will find itself engulfed in another Vietnam type quagmire, this time on the African continent, sometime in 2014.  We have troops fighting little brush fire wars in various places in Africa now.  It is not outside the realm of possibility that one of those brush fires will flare up into a huge conflagration without the American public even being aware that American warriors are bleeding and dying in the jungles of that mysterious land.  Too, I would be less than honest if I did not tell you that I have no idea why we are spending our blood and treasure on such a hopeless cause as saving Africa.  Only Africa can save Africa.   Our efforts on the dark continent are almost as hopeless as bringing peace between the Israelis and the so-called Palestinians. Oh.  by the way, that, too, will fail in 2014.
One is drawn to ask if America is in Africa fighting indigenous insurrectionists, or, are we actually establishing forward bases from which to attack Al-Qaeda in Africa?  If the latter, I must wonder what happened to the Al-Qaeda Mr. Obama suggested to the nation was through, kaput? 
As we chart our course for 2014, I suggest we would be wise to take a back-azimuth off 2013.  For, if my suspicions are anywhere near correct, we are in for a replay of 2013 – at least until November.

ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENC

When Katherine Met Tamerlan, a Jihadist Love Story

I guess I can see why Katherine Russell fell in love with murdering Islamic fanatic Tamerlan Tsarnaev. From the New York Daily News:

College roommates of Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s widow described him as a brutish, manipulative boyfriend who often hurled insults — and more — at the woman who would eventually bear his child.

Three of Katherine Russell’s pals at Suffolk University watched as she was terrorized by the dead bombing suspect after they began their on-and-off relationship in 2007, NPR reported.
Angry and controlling, Tsarnaev called Russell a “slut” and a “prostitute” and was known to throw furniture or

other objects at her during fits of rage, the unnamed roommates said.

What a dream boat! No wonder he swept her off her feet! And that was before she entered the dream come true of actually being married to Tamerlan, in which she could work 70 hours a week while he stayed home building bombs and planning murder and mayhem.

Does the Violence Against Women Act have anything to say about this sort of thing? I didn’t think so.

Under The Radar: Obama Administration’s Outrageous Abuses of Executive Power Threaten 2nd Amendment

While Barack Obama and Joe Biden barnstorm the country attempting to gin up emotionally-driven indignation against our 2nd Amendment rights, federal agencies under their control are working behind the scenes to put the hurt on firearms’ manufacturers and law-abiding citizens who dare to exercise their rights. David Keene, President of the NRA, writes today in the Washington Times: 

One major national firearms retailer, for example, has been under fire for more than two years from the Obama administration’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. It seems the company won’t hire convicted felons, which the commission claims amounts to illegal racial discrimination. The federal government these days argues that policies that have what government lawyers call a “disparate impact” on racial minorities amount to impermissible discrimination – even when the policies themselves were not put in place for discriminatory reasons. Thus, the government argues that a higher percentage of minorities within the felony population than in the population at large means that any policy that discriminates against felons as a class is discriminatory because its impact falls disparately on minorities.

Company officials pointed out to commission investigators threatening to charge the company with discrimination that they couldn’t hire felons even if they wanted to, because federal law prohibits federal firearms licensees from hiring felons. The investigator’s response was, according to a company official I talked to: “That’s your problem, not ours.”

He also describes the persecution of gun collector Kristopher Gasior.

Security agents to the Fredericksburg, Va., home of Kristopher Gasior on March 8. Mr. Gasior is a gun collector, author and expert on Polish-made firearms. Mr. Gasior owns a collection that includes a rare military rifle made by the Polish government in 1938, was captured by invading German forces the next year, and brought to the United States by a GI who took it from a German in the final days of the war.The agents who came to his door didn’t have a warrant, but Mr. Gasior’s wife invited them in, and when her husband came into the room, they asked if he had the rifle. When he said yes and showed it to them, they seized it and gave him a receipt after informing him that they were taking it on behalf of the Polish government. They claimed it was a “one-of-a-kind rifle” that had been looted from the Polish government during the war.

This situation is reminiscent of last week’s ridiculous action by the state of New Jersey. Fortunately in that case, the law-abiding citizen on the receiving end of government persecution demanded a warrant, which of course, the state thugs could not produce. From CBS News:

Shawn Moore said he gave his son Josh the gun as a present to use on hunting trips. The elder Moore was at a friend’s house when his wife called, saying state child welfare investigators, along with four local police officers, were at the house, asking to inspect the family’s guns.

Moore said he called his lawyer Evan Nappen, who specializes in Second Amendment cases, and had him on speakerphone as he arrived at his house in Carneys Point, just across the Delaware River from Wilmington, Del.

“They said they wanted to see into my safe and see if my guns were registered,” Moore said. “I said no; in New Jersey, your guns don’t have to be registered with the state; it’s voluntary. I knew once I opened that safe, there was no going back.”

With the lawyer listening in on the phone, Moore said he asked the investigators and police officers whether they had a warrant to search his home. When they said no, he asked them to leave. One of the child welfare officials would not identify herself when Moore asked for her name, he said.

The agents and the police officers left, and nothing has happened since, he said.

“I don’t like what happened,” he said. “You’re not even safe in your own house. If they can just show up at any time and make you open safes and go through your house, that’s not freedom; it’s like tyranny.”

Precisely. I’m still waiting for Gov. Chris Christie’s apology for this disgusting act by state officials.

The Obama administration knows its proposed new gun control measures are non-starters, but regardless, the tyrannical actions of federal agencies will continue even if these measures go down in flames.

As David Kopel, one of America’s leading experts on 2nd Amendment law told us recently when he visited The Teri O’Brien Show, we live in perilous times.

Guccifer and his Pet Crickets

Only We can keep Journalists Quiet

Only We can keep Journalists Quiet

A little over a month ago, the hacker extraordinaire Guccifer pilfered the sister of former President George W. Bush’s e-mail account. The press had a field day chortling over self-portraits President Bush painted of himself. Not so funny was the e-mail that disclosed George H.W. Bush was so close to his maker that a team was practicing for his imminent demise. G.W. Bush was preparing an eulogy. Serious stuff. Stuff First Lady Barbara Bush didn’t need to hear. The effort to keep Mrs. Bush unaware of the preparations was specifically noted in the e-mails.

That didn’t stop the press from publishing the contents of private e-mails.

When Sarah Palin’s e-mail was hacked by David Kernell, the press loved it. David Kernell is the son of Democratic Tennessee state representative Mike Kernell. Facing 20 years in prison, he received a year and a day. Hardly motivation for others to avoid this behavior.

Then last week we had Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, and a slew of others get their credit reports and other information stolen.

All of a sudden it isn’t funny anymore to the press. This hacker left this for Michelle Obama:

‘Blame your husband, we still love you, Michelle. <3′

Perhaps a reference to the hacker not being able to verify Barrack Obama’s Social Security Number. (/sarc off) No, I won’t link to Orly Taitz. GGIFY

In any event, the press did their level best to keep that site a secret. Actually, it was pretty bland if you ask me.

Then, just as that crisis was winding down and Hillary was distracting everyone with her gay marriage announcement, word came the Sidney Blumenthal was hacked.

Armed with confidential memos to Hillary Clinton that were stolen from the e-mail account of a former White House aide, a hacker has distributed some of the documents to a wide array of congressional aides, political figures, and journalists worldwide.

In a series of weekend e-mail blasts, the hacker known as “Guccifer” disseminated four recent memos to Clinton from Sidney Blumenthal, a longtime confidant of the former Secretary of State.

The 64-year-old Blumenthal, who worked as a senior White House adviser to President Bill Clinton, had his AOL e-mail account hacked last week by “Guccifer,”

This guy is advising the Secretary of State with an AOL account? Yikes! We are in trouble.

Most of the e-mail recipients were sent four separate memos that were e-mailed to Clinton by Blumenthal during the past five months. Each memo dealt with assorted developments in Libya, including the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi. One memo marked “Confidential” was sent to Clinton on September 12.

Now before you get all ‘smoking gun’ on me, it’s against the law for classified material to be on a unauthorized (read: non-governmental) computer. Therefore, it isn’t likely that Mrs. Clinton would use her government computer to send Sidney Blumenthal anything that would get her in trouble. His computer would be unauthorized. She would know this by the heat EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson took. She was forced to resign.

Nevertheless, the press has been incredibly silent. So silent you can hear the crickets chirping. This sort of thing doesn’t stay quiet forever, tho. This Guccifer sent these e-mails to “hundreds” of journalists.

While the majority of the journalists to whom he sent the Blumenthal memos are based in the U.S., “Guccifer” also sent the documents (in a separate e-mail) to about two dozen reporters working for Russian outlets like Pravda, the Moscow Times, The St. Petersburg Times, and the RT news channel.

Our journalists might be able to hold out releasing these e-mails, but the Russians? I don’t think so.

In other news, Reince Priebus wants a say in who moderates the next presidential debates.

RNC chairman Reince Priebus told The Daily Caller that the party does not only want to reduce the number of debates. The RNC, he said, also wants to explore the possibility of choosing who actually asks the questions during the debates.

“I think the party should have more control over who moderates, and we should have more control over the partners,” Priebus told TheDC. “And if we can come up with a mechanism to take more control over the debate processes, that’s what we’re going to try to do.”

Maybe Mr. Priebus should go with the first journalist to release Hillary’s Benghazi e-mails. Maybe we’ll get our first Russian presidential debate moderator. Now that would be unprecedented!
