FDR hated Gay Men and used Undercover Men to Deviously out Gay Men in the Navy

Posted by PITHOCRATES - September 1st, 2013

Week in Review

When it comes to liberal icons they don’t come bigger than FDR to the left.  He is their god.  His New Deal began the transformation of the country into the quasi social democracy it is today.  And because of this they will never find any wrong with what the man did.  And he did what the left would call some pretty horrible things.  Like the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.  And this (see To crack down on gays in the Navy, FDR created a special unit that performed oral sex on men in order to out the gay ones  posted 9/1/2013 on OMG Facts).

It’s incredibly ironic, but prior to his presidency, FDR signed off on a secret Navy unit to seek out homosexuals…

It later became known as the Newport Scandal. Newport, Rhode Island’s Naval Base had numerous complaints of sexual solicitation by males around the base. So, FDR’s Navy unit sought to entrap these men. Surprisingly, the unit was ordered to perform oral sex on suspected homosexuals on base, including a clergyman! Once the story broke, FDR claimed memory lapse and never admitted to signing off on the operation.

Apparently liberal icon FDR didn’t care for the homosexuals.  He would have opposed having gays serving openly in the military.  And he would have opposed Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.  Because he hated homosexuals and didn’t want them serving in the military.  Apparently.  Based on his entrapment policy of seducing gay men.  Even men who might only have thought about being gay.  What a mean, horrible man FDR was.

But the left worships him.  And will discount these things as being a part of those times.  Just like Senator Byrd being a member of the KKK.  It was just something that Democrats did back then.  It didn’t mean that they were racists.  And the fact that FDR persecuted homosexuals doesn’t mean that he was anti-gay.  But if Paula Dean should say the ‘n’ word back in those times, well, it’s obvious that she’s a racist today.  Because she’s not advancing the liberal agenda.  So she should never be forgiven.  And should burn in hell.  Apparently.

The Peruvian Winter exposes Climate Scientists as Charlatans

Posted by PITHOCRATES - September 1st, 2013

Week in Review

Our public schools are frightening our children about global warming.  Warning them that summers will be hotter.  And winters will be warming.  Which will be a bitch for Santa Clause.  As he drives a sleigh.

Back in 2000 newspapers wrote that science has proven global warming.  It’s settled.  Worse, “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is.”  Guess they didn’t get that memo in Peru (see Peru snow state of emergency extended to more regions posted 8/31/2013 on BBC News Latin America and Caribbean).

The Peruvian government has extended to nine more regions a state of emergency called to cope with unusually cold weather and heavy snowfall…

The heaviest snow fall to hit Peru in a decade has killed tens of thousands of llamas, alpacas, cattle and sheep, and left farmers destitute.

According to settled science in 2000, what is happening in Peru cannot happen.  But it is happening.  It’s cold.  And snowing like a son of a bitch.  Which means the climate scientists were wrong.  Exposing them as the charlatans they are.  Proving global warming is all about the politics.  And not the science.

California pushing Legislation to allow Nurses to Provide Abortions

Posted by PITHOCRATES - September 1st, 2013

Week in Review

Roe v. Wade may have made abortions legal in the country.  But it doesn’t force doctors to perform abortions.  The Achilles heel of Roe v. Wade.  And apparently causing a problem in California (see Nurses could perform abortions in the first 12-weeks of pregnancy under new Californian bill by Anthony Bond posted on the Daily Mail).

Nurses in California could soon be allowed to perform abortions within the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

Nurse practitioners and certified nurse-midwives would be allowed to perform abortions instead of doctors…

Speaking to The Huffington Post, Assemblywoman Toni Atkins, who wrote the measure, said there is a huge lack of  abortion providers in California…

Opponents say more providers are not needed becasue [sic] California already has the highest rate of abortion in the U.S.

Even though few doctors want to abort babies in California the state has the highest rate of abortions in the U.S.  Which brings up two interesting points.  The first being that doctors apparently don’t want to perform abortions.  Possibly because of that “I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion” in the Hippocratic Oath.  Or because of that “do no harm” in the oath.  Assuming they believe a gestating fetus is a human life that they can harm.

The other point is that if they are leading in the number of abortions how can they have a lack of abortion providers?  Apparently the few doctors willing to violate their Hippocratic Oath are being fed with more pregnant women to perform abortions on than in any other state.  The question is how many more abortions are enough?  But there is an even more interesting question.  What if they can’t get ‘enough’ nurse practitioners and certified nurse-midwives to perform abortions?

A mid-wife typically helps with the delivery of a baby.  Because they love bringing new life into the world.  How are they going to feel about amending their business cards to read, “Deliveries and abortions?”  To be skilled at both bringing new life into the world?  And preventing the bringing of new life into the world?  They may not take the Hippocratic Oath but they probably do their job as if they had.  And no doubt will be as reluctant to perform abortions as doctors are.

John Kerry insults Britain because the House of Commons said ‘No’ to Military Action in Syria

Posted by PITHOCRATES - September 1st, 2013

Week in Review

There is a special relationship between Britain and the United States.  The first Americans were British.  As the American colonies were part of the British Empire.  The American colonists fought alongside British regulars against the French and Indians during the Seven Years’ War.  The cost of that war and the subsequent taxation to pay for it created a bit of a falling out between the British and the Americans.  In a little thing we call the American Revolution.  After that falling out, though, we resumed our special relationship with our former masters.  Who was our major trade partner.  Not France.  Who helped us in the American Revolution.  Why?  Because Britain’s Royal Navy ruled the seas.  And had a vast empire to trade with.

The French were inspired so much by our revolution that they had one of their own.  The French Revolution.  And unlike the American Revolution the French Revolution was rather vengeful.  With French citizens killing other French citizens.  Including their king and queen.  Which just appalled President Washington.  Then the French started waging war with her neighbors.  Including their eternal foe.  Britain.  The Americans remained neutral in the conflict.  But their neutrality favored the British.  As America’s economic future was tied more closely to the British than the French.  Something that irked the French in charge of France at the time.  The same people that killed King Louis XVI.  The head of France that helped the Americans in their revolution.

Then the Franco-American relations soured.  Citizen Genêt came to the U.S.  The new French ambassador.  To encourage the Americans to support France in their wars against Britain and Spain.  Recruiting American privateers to attack British shipping.  Even basing these operations out of American ports.  Bringing captured British vessels to American ports.  And he recruited a militia to march on the Spanish in Florida.  Infuriating President Washington.  It even got the ever-quarreling Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson to agree on something.  The danger Citizen Genêt was placing the Americans in.  Risking war with the British Empire.  So they asked for his recall.  Which the French did.  But because that probably meant the guillotine Genêt asked for asylum in America and got it.  Living out his days as an American.

Then there was the XYZ Affair.  The British and the French were interdicting trade of the other with neutral powers.   Including the Americans.  The Jay Treaty eased tensions between Britain and America.  But it angered the French.  Who stepped up their attacks on American shipping.  Hoping to avoid war with France President Adams sent a diplomatic mission to France.  But the French said before the Americans could enter any negotiations they first had to pay a bribe.  And agree to a loan.  The Americans refused and left.  When word reached America there was outrage.  Congress even annulled the 1778 Treaty of Alliance.  The treaty that brought the French into the American Revolution.  And promised America military support if the British ever attacked the French.  People wanted to go to war with France.  But eventually they reached an agreement and avoided said war.

So the Franco-American alliance was tenuous at best.  And short-lived.  The French entered into it not to help the Americans succeed in their lofty idealism.  Of life without a king.  For France was an absolute monarchy.  And the last thing an absolute monarchy wants is to fill their people’s heads with silly notions of liberty.  Because that could lead to things like the French Revolution.  No.  The French allied with the Americans to regain territory they lost to the British.  Which they lost a lot of at the conclusion of the Seven Years’ War.  Which the Americans helped them lose.  No doubt weighing heavily on their minds.  As during the peace negotiations they tried to strike a deal with the British to keep the Americans east of the Appalachians.  Thankfully, for the Americans, Benjamin Franklin was in Paris during the peace negotiations.  And made a more favorable peace for the Americans.  To France’s dismay.  Which no doubt led to the tenuous Franco-American relations following the French Revolution.

So this is America’s history.  A history that is based in friendship and amity between the British and the Americans.  Apart from that small episode called the American Revolution.  While King Louis XVI did help America win her independence from Britain France’s motive for their support was to take large chunks of North America back.  Even at the expense of the Americans.  We had a brief alliance during the Revolutionary War with France.  But the Americans have prospered because of the special relationship with Britain.  Two people that share a language, a history, a culture, a legal system and a form of government (representative government).  So what does the current American administration do to our BFF?  This (see Syria: John Kerry slaps Britain in face as he calls France ‘oldest allies’ by Peter Foster posted 8/30/2013 on The Telegraph).

John Kerry administered a diplomatic slap in the face to Britain following David Cameron’s withdrawal of military support for intervention in Syria, omitting the UK from a long list of ‘friends’ prepared to support US actions against the Assad regime.

The diplomatic smart was made worse by Mr Kerry’s pointed reference to the French as “our oldest ally” – a reference that dates back to France’s role supporting America against Britain in the American Revolutionary War that began in 1776…

He then listed the Obama administration’s supporters, including the Arab League, the Organisation for Islamic Cooperation, the Turks, Australians and the French. Britain, however, was conspicuous by its absence from that list…

“Turkey said there is no doubt that the regime is responsible. Our oldest ally, the French, said the regime, quote, “committed this vile action, and it is an outrage to use weapons that the community has banned for the last 90 years in all international conventions.”

What is it with this administration and the British?  First President Obama returns a bust of Winston Churchill to the British embassy.  And now this slap in the face.  One would get the impression that they don’t like the British.  Perhaps it’s because of Britain’s support in the Iraq War.  Or that John Kerry can speak French.  And is a Francophile at heart.  But as the U.S. Secretary of State he should not spurn our BFF.

America and France are great friends.  But Britain and America are greater friends.  Because of the special relationship.  Insulting them is not stately.  It’s just impudent and impertinent.  Things a secretary of state should just not be.

France tried the President Obama Balanced Approach to Deficit Reduction only to see it Fail

Posted by PITHOCRATES - September 1st, 2013

Week in Review

All we heard during the debt ceiling debate and the sequester debate from President Obama is that we must have a balanced approach.  Tax hikes now.  And spending cuts later.  Which, of course, means no spending cuts.  Ever.  For why would they cut spending after they got their tax hikes?  Too many Republicans got snookered by past Democrats on that false promise.

President Obama assures us that if we raise tax rates it will solve all of our problems.  But if we cut spending that’s just stupid.  Because government spending creates economic activity.  According to the Keynesian economics playbook, at least.  And President Obama is a Keynesian.  In fact, he’s so much a Keynesian that some would even call him a socialist.  But Keynesian economics hasn’t worked in America.  It didn’t work in the 1970s.  It gave us a dot-com bubble in the 1990s.  And the beginning of the real estate bubble that burst into the subprime mortgage crisis in the 2000s.  So we’ve tried Keynesian economics and it doesn’t work.  And, as it turns out, Keynesian economics that borders on outright socialism doesn’t work either (see France signals shift to tax cuts in boost to business by AFP posted 9/1/2013 on France 24).

France’s Socialist government is hinting it may appease discontent at tax rises by putting more stress on spending cuts in its fight to control the budget and boost growth…

France has so far relied on tax hikes for about two-thirds of its fiscal adjustment. Most famously it hiked the tax rate to 75 percent on income above 1 million euros.

The reliance on tax hikes has also prompted warnings from the IMF and European Commission that it should focus more on cutting spending in order to avoid snuffing out the recovery…

France’s social welfare system is funded primarily by charges on labour, burdening businesses…

A threat to nationalise a French plant owned by steel giant Arcelor Mittal to protect jobs raised concerns among foreign businesses…

The latest purchasing managers surveys by Markit found that while business activity is picking up in the eurozone overall, it contracted at a faster rate in France this month.

Francois Hollande has been president since May 15, 2012.  That’s about one year and three months.  And in that time his socialist government raised taxes.  But barely cut spending.  Just as President Obama wants to do to reduce the U.S. budget deficit.  Despite the fact that it doesn’t work.  As France has proven.

The U.S. doesn’t have to try the President Obama way.  The balanced approach.  AKA, the all tax and no spending-cut approach.  Because France has tried it in a grand way only to see it fail.  It failed so badly that they’re talking about outright socialism.  Nationalizing industry.  Because the economic climate is so anti-business in France that there is no job creation.  Because there is no business growth.  Worse, the French economy is contracting.  That’s right, while the rest of the Eurozone is seeing growth France’s economy is going deeper into recession.  Because they’re doing what President Obama wants to do in the U.S.

It’s time we purge Keynesian economics from our governments for good.  It is the source of all the great financial problems countries are having all around the world.  All it does is empower those in power.  Elevating them to elite positions.  Where they enjoy a life of plenty and extreme comfort.  While their people struggle to provide for their families.  It’s time that we return to classical economics.  Save our money and live frugally.  Creating private investment capital from our savings via a sound banking system.  Where bankers practice good lending practices without governments passing their risks onto the taxpayers.  Which is what gave us the subprime mortgage crisis.  And the worst recession since the Great Depression.

Finally, governments have to spend less.  So we can cut tax rates.  Providing the spark to ignite private investment.  Which drives business expansion.  And creates jobs.  Which is what people want.  So they can provide for their families.  Not more benefits that the government can’t pay for.  No matter how high the government taxes them.
