Little Anthony Freemont´s
Twilight Zone is Our Reality

American Thinker, by Doug Mainwaring

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 4/12/2013 6:34:43 AM

Remember little Anthony Freemont, played by cute little Billy Mumy, in one of the "Twilight Zone´s" most famous episodes? In the opening sequence Rod Serling informs us: "A monster had arrived in the village. Just by using his mind, he took away the automobiles, the electricity, the machines -- because they displeased him -- and he moved an entire community back into the dark ages -- just by using his mind. . . . and the people there have to smile. They have to think happy thoughts and say happy things because once displeased, the monster can wish them into a cornfield

It is truly maddening to attempt to deal with the Left (Progressives, Liberals, Communists, Socialists, Husseiniacs - whatever). There brainwashing has been so very thorough that just the mere encroachment of some fact or truth is an anathema to them so horrible that they must unload the demons of hell upon the offender. Sarah Palin got the full brunt of that kind of treatment and has, for all intents and purposes, destroyed any future political career - over WHAT? Answer - she was the enemy, perceived or otherwise.

Whenever anyone asks, "What has happened to our AMERICA?", show them this superb, MUST READ article.

FTA Political correctness is a tool of tyranny, wielded skillfully by Progressives to silence and render impotent principled objection to the advancement of their cause.

Can no longer have discussions at certain gatherings without being attacked.
Ironically, some family members quietly come up to let me know they agree-but it is easier to let the socialists have their way-ostensibly.
The silent majority returns.
Great article-although I think LittlemAnthony is being played by The Man who Calls Himself Obama.

Perfect. Now, where´s the clip of The Hag in 2004 screeching about how sick and tired she was of people who say that if you debate and disagree with (an) administration, somehow you´re not patriotic...and how we should stand up and say, "We are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration!"

Maybe I get away with more because I am a woman, but it may be left up to us ladies to be the spokespersons for the conservative right. Here´s how - if our culture is so scared of the "race card," we girls can use the "feminism card." Next time some lib tries to correct your thinking, you give them a big, loud dose of what conservative women think. Let them know that you stand your ground & you will not be disrespected. It has worked for me many times. Then when they disagree - instead of the reflexive comeback, "You´re a racist!" that so effectively shuts up most people, you substitute, "You´re a sexist!" Make their own words sound ridiculous to them. You have to use their tactics against them EVERY time. My SIL proudly calls herself a militant feminist - I made up my own title - militant conservative. Own your opinion & don´t be ashamed of it!

How terribly depressing. There have been many articles written similar to this and they never give advice as to what to do. How do you fight this massive movement that has a huge head start on controlling practically everything in our society? I recently had lunch with an old friend who had worked with me in a law firm many years ago. It got off to a horrible start when I was lamenting the destruction 0bama is causing to our nation, what a dangerous man he is and she didn´t agree. She said she voted for him and when I questioned her about how she could vote for someone like him she refused to even discuss it. After several attempts of me asking why, what do you see in him, etc. She advised me she would not talk about it. Thankfully, after finding common ground in discussing our old friends and some of favorite authors we managed to finish lunch uncomfortably, but I will never contact her again. If you can´t even discuss the problems how do you change their minds? You know this has to be occurring all over this nation. It was beyond frustrating and disturbing. I am at a total loss as to how to get our country back when you can´t even have a reasonable discourse about it.

Let me get this straight. Does this mean that every time we catch BHO or his fawning, groveling sycophants telling another blatant, indisputable, easily provable, America-hating lie, calling attention to it would be our greatest sin of all? Committing Political Incorrectness? Is that what this is all about? Well then, if that’s what this is all about, just give me directions to the cornfield where I’ll be more than pleased and enormously proud to become a resident.

TV’s “Hee-Haw” from Kornfield Kounty used to be one of my favorites. Who knows? Maybe there’ll be non-stop reruns of it. Anyhow, it’d be nice being surrounded by a better class of people, patriotic Americans. Sa-lute!

They want to be constantly affirmed, never challenged, never questioned, never judged.

This is where we as conservatives completely fall short. There are a handful pf people who will stand up to these brutes and speak truth to power, but not enough. Kudos to Sarah Palin and I want to say that continue to support her for her courage.

On the floor of the U.S. Senate, Ted Kennedy ruthlessly went after George W. Bush and accused him of "lie after lie after lie after lie."

Why aren´t we doing this? What keeps holding up back? Are we really that timid? Perhaps, but at some point, we are all going to have to speak up and challenge these juvenile tyrants or we will suffer.

You cannot "freeze, isolate, and ridicule" a monster like: "Progressive Ideologues". You must say his name: "Barack Obama" is the monster behind this. Because he is the Figurehead Monster behind this, isn´t he? When you journalist-speak of the Gosnell Partial Abortion case, and how Gosnell is a Monster, and how this story must break anyone´s heart, you must say: "Barack Obama supports partial birth abortion." If you are trying to kill the monster. You cannot just wound him. You have to kill him, republicans. Aye, there´s the rub for republicans. Putting him down. Notice the MSM does not cover Gosnell because they would look insane covering a Monster. And yet he is a Monster who is only doing exactly what the democrat figurehead willfully supports. There is no spin sufficient to absolve anyone of this "monstrosity." So they do not try, and they do not what you to know what partial birth abortion is, knowing it would attach to Obama somewhere. It is something to answer for the in the Next Life. But you are responsible for the soul of children in your generation. You must must speak up clearly, even if they will not. It is one matter to discuss dead babies, taken alive from their mothers wombs, only to have their spines snipped, and their skull hacked into with scissors, and their brains vacuumed out. It is another to say Obama knows about this and supports it, and directly or indirectly so does anyone who supports Obama. Deep down this is something no human can support, and that is the deal with the devil among other deals made by anyone who supports Obama. Just publish a "Must Read" article that slants "Obama supports the monstrosity of partial birth abortion. Can you still support Obama?"

We are seeing the immature viciousness of the Far Left. Those Democrats I know, the old-fashioned kind who just wanted the government to do its best to help the unfortunate, now grow very VERY silent if any kind of political topic comes up. They know the Far Left is quite wrong...but they don´t want to desert their ideals.... especially the Obama voters.

The Electorate has to grow up and face facts. Economic pain will do that...but sufficient economic pain in the case of the misguided Democrats may not come in time.

Sometimes the truth hurts. To my mind the truth is that George W Bush created much of the basis for the Left´s successful diatribes against Conservatives. What if there had been no George Bush presidency? There would be no paper tiger to eternally hold up as "the cause" for just about everyting that goes wrong in America. What if a true conservative had een elected? What if? I know... Who could ever "know". Personally, I never believed GWB was ever qualified to be president. As I do not believe that BHO was ever qualified to be President. And I do not in any way mean to equate GWB´s non-qalifications with those non-qualifications of BHO. I believe at heart GWB was a good man with good intentions. It never made him presidential material. On the other hand BHO has absolutely no objective redeeming qualities. Next time around true conseratives need to get back to basics. I truly believe that most of Americans now crave it.

America has been sent to the cornfield by the "progressives" and their god-man Barack Fremont. Political correctness is their weapon of choice to eliminate opposition, and they know that pushing guilt buttons and disguising it as a demand for "civility" effectively subdues the hapless GOP townsfolk fearfully facing this monster.

Exceptional piece of writing, with an exceptional understanding of the threat from the Left - they won´t stop until freedom of speech is entirely crushed under their boot. In the Twilight Zone episode, it is Anthony who needs elimination, but "progressives" demand we "work with" him, "understand" him, and embrace his "good intentions" in a big, fraudulent group hug. Right before he condemns another American freedom, his enemy of enemies, to the cornfield.

Climate Forecast: Muting the Alarm

The United Nations´ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will shortly publish the second part of its latest report, on the likely impact of climate change. Government representatives are meeting with scientists in Japan to sex up—sorry, rewrite—a summary of the scientists´ accounts of storms, droughts and diseases to come. But the actual report, known as AR5-WGII, is less frightening than its predecessor seven years ago. The 2007 report was riddled with errors about Himalayan glaciers, the Amazon rain forest, African agriculture, water shortages and other matters, all of which erred in the direction of alarm. This led to a critical appraisal

You may have noticed that our friends on the left have begun to refer to the Koch brothers and other rich conservatives as "oligarchs." Like calling evangelicals "jihadists" and the tea party "racist," this comparison to the billionaires in Vladimir Putin´s circle is meant to stigmatize and marginalize these men politically and socially. This latest Saul Alinsky tactic got us thinking about who really qualifies as an American oligarch. If the definition is someone who becomes rich by association with government power and policies, and then assists those in power, the Kochs would barely make the list. Their companies are usually

BEIJING - A Malaysian team have told relatives of Chinese passengers on board the missing Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370 that there was sealed evidence that cannot be made public, as they came under fire from the angry relatives at a briefing on Wednesday. The sealed evidence included air traffic control radio transcript, radar data and airport security recordings. The briefing at the Metropark Lido Hotel in Beijing focused on UK satellite analysis which led Malaysia to conclude that flight MH370 ended in south Indian Ocean, off Perth. The Chinese relatives were told that a five-member high-level team from Malaysia plans to brief

Sen. Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) primary challenger, businessman Matt Bevin, is working to make sure McConnell is forever linked with the wrong team in the state’s bitter basketball rivalry with Duke University. Bevin is debuting a new ad during Friday’s Kentucky versus Louisville basketball game that features a cutout of the Senate minority leader bedecked in a blue Duke jersey. It’s a reference to a McConnell campaign video launched earlier this week that mistakenly featured a shot of Duke’s 2010 championship team celebrating their win — a grave error in the Bluegrass State, where Duke has a longstanding rivalry with the University of

California to open facilities for ONLY
illegal immigrants’ driver’s licenses

Posted By: Desert Fox- 3/27/2014 7:29:22 PM     Post Reply
The California Department of Motor Vehicles is setting up new facilities to process driver’s license applications for illegal immigrants alone. Last year, Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law a bill, AB 60, which will allow illegal immigrants to obtain the documents beginning Jan. 1, 2015. The bill was signed along with a number of others laws seen as favorable to undocumented immigrants. As part of the driver’s license application process, immigrants will have to acknowledge that they are undocumented. But AB 60 protects applicants from criminal prosecution. The measure will provide an avenue for the state’s three to four million undocumented immigrants to obtain

RUSH: There´s a story here by Chris Cillizza in the Washington Post: "President Obama Got Elected on Competence. Now People are Starting to Wonder." You see, ladies and gentlemen, the Drive-Bys are beginning to get worried. The very low approval numbers, around 40 -- I don´t know how it´s that high, frankly. But the disapproval number is almost at 60%. Six out of 10 disapprove of the way Obama´s doing the job. That is really bad. Really worrisome, because, remember, these people back in 2007 and 2008 promoted Barack Obama as the single greatest living human being to get into

RUSH: According to media reports, President Obama met with Pope Francis for 52 minutes in the Vatican. Obama didn´t intend to show up there. He looked at the word quickly and thought it said "vacation." And when they were pulling up to St. Peter´s, Obama said (impersonating Obama), "What -- what -- what -- what are we doing here?" "Sir, you said you wanted to come to the Vatican." "No, I said vacation." So once they were there, they were committed. Giant entourage shows up at the Vatican. So Obama went in there, and he met with Pope Francis for 52 minutes. We´re

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people. The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip, which included Secret Service

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Six months ago, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa subpoenaed the emails of former head of IRS Tax Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner. Lerner was in charge during the IRS´ inappropriate targeting of conservative, patriot and tea party groups. IRS officials have failed to comply with the subpoena and today during a hearing on Capitol Hill, Issa threatened IRS Commissioner John A. Koskinen, one of only two political appointees at the agency, with contempt. "Unfortunately you´ve been more concerned with managing political fallout than complying with this Committee," Issa said, urging Koskinen to comply or "potentially be held in

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

Washington - A leading Democratic pollster predicted a "sobering" turnout disadvantage for her party in this year´s midterm elections and called on Democrats to articulate "a bigger economic agenda" this fall. "There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge," Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters. "There is always a challenge in turnout in an off year, but it´s really dramatic this time." Lake was speaking a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. Lake and Republican pollster Ed Goeas revealed results of a new George Washington University poll that showed GOP voter intensity in 2014 outpacing

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama´s job performance in a new poll by the Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire. According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent. In the AP poll,

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time. During a March 12 congressional hearing, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told Texas Republican Rep. Kevin Brady that there would be no such extensions. ´Are you going to delay the open enrollment beyond March 31?´ Brady asked. ´No, sir,´ she replied. On the same day, Julie Bataille, a spokeswoman for the

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.
