Philip Dru Administrator, book review

Book Review: Philip Dru Administrator by Edward Mandell House Would you like an idea of what the Liberals have been planning since the early 20th Century? Philip Dru, Administrator is an easy read; it's free to acquire online; and it shows you how the Left envisioned their ideal utopia to function. Written in 1912, the story is set in the future years of 1920-1935. It begins in the middle of a fictitious Civil War between the egalitarian western United States and the aristocratic East where one very self-righteous man, Philip Dru, believes he has the answer for all of society’s ills. He, along with a small elite group of supporters, believes he is the only person capable of righting what is wrong with America. He completely overhauls the United States government by enlisting all manner of “experts” to evaluate the entire federal government and institute their recommended "perfect" reforms. Dru then steps aside to make way for another Administrator to take his place. In reality, the United States in the story turns into a benevolent dictatorship. Keep in mind, when the book was written, the world had yet to experience the horrors that Marx's ideology unleashed on the globe. The many off-shoots of Marxism were still just philosophical ideals extolled by those who believed that Communism was the answer to the perceived troubles of Capitalism.  In 1912 America, our colleges and universities had already begun their transformation into the autocratic Ivory Towers we know today. At the end of the 1800s, two main philosophical “schools” exported their brand of scientism* to the United States where they found open arms in academe: Fabian Socialists from Britain and the Frankfurt School from Germany. Both of these groups hated the American Revolution and the freedom enshrined in the Declaration and Constitution; they hated faith; and they hated Capitalism. The originators rallied around Darwin and Marx to begin a deliberate pogrom to define evolution and Marxism as scientific fact, while disparaging religion in order to delegitimize faith for the purpose of eventually reversing individual liberty as well as to destroy Capitalism through official government policy. By legitimizing science over religion, the professorial Marxist-Darwinian apostles began a methodical takeover of education, media, government, culture, etc through scientific-sounding propaganda. They formed professional associations; lobbied politicians; wrote verbose treatises; and developed influential networks of like-minded individuals who worked together to gain strides toward their end-goal of utopia on Earth. Today, we see our massive federal bureaucracy populated with bloviating “experts” trying to administer every aspect of our lives (and usually failing miserably). This book will give valuable insight into what the early Leftist disciples thought would be the Humanist's Heaven on Earth because they all believed (and still believe) that those outside their scholarly officious circle are completely incapable of taking care of themselves and must be guided through our miserable lives whether we want it or not. *Scientism is a cult-like adherence to science as an ideal rather than quantifiable facts and theories that can be challenged and tested. It is looking to a person who is assumed to be an expert for direction rather than looking at evidence, weighing it logically, and making reasoned deductions. Today, real scientists use computer modeling more than hands-on experimental testing to reach actionable conclusions. Computer information is only as good as the data inputted and has led to many “mistakes” and oppressive governmental responses. This author believes scientism to be more religion than science.

Facebook makes you dance to dispute a fact-check

  Granted Absolution by the Omniscient Fact-Checkers and I was Grateful I was recently fact-checked on Facebook for the first time. Surprisingly, I have actually never been fact-checked before – unbelievable, I know. I have had posts and comments turned into the Facebook police and told that my post violated community standards, but today was my first bona fide fact-check. The problem is that the fact-checker is wrong and I can prove it, but there is no clear way to dispute the all-knowing, all-seeing checkers of facts. This is a problem, because, unless I am wrong, not one of them is omniscient, but Facebook treats them as if they are. Like a Papal Bull, if the checkers of facts deem something to be false – it is. So when they deem 2+2=5, what are we serfs to do? My post was an innocent quote by C.S. Lewis set in a meme form. I admit, I downloaded a meme that was already created instead of creating my own, but I had just read the quote in “Mere Christianity” – a book authored by…<cue drum roll, please>…C.S. Lewis. Immediately I received an overlay and notice that the quote is not attributable to C.S. Lewis. Now, I understand that sometimes older books are edited by others with some nuanced changes, so I checked the book over and did a quick internet search for a copy of the book online to make sure that what I had read a half hour earlier might have been edited by someone else. In less than 2 minutes, I found (on the first page of the search results) two free pdf versions of the book. Looking in both of those, I found the quote sitting exactly where I had found it in the paperback version. So, I went back to my Facebook post and clicked the “why” button on the overlay (HINT: Pay attention to the media company and the country the fact-check is attributed to – you will need this later). First of all, the quote I posted doesn’t even match the fact-checked quote. Second, even if the quote was the one checked, I have three separate editions of the book that says the fact-checker is wrong. And lastly, there is no “You’re wrong” link for me to dispute the rating. What is on the “Why you are an idiot” sleeve is a “Learn more” link, so I clicked on that. It brought me to the Help Center. Now I’m not sure how you define help, but I define it much differently than the cabal that runs Facebook. The help center is far from helpful. There’s a whole lot of useless information about how committed Facebook is to accurate information being spread on the internet (clearly not) and how the independent fact-checkers rate each other’s accuracy meaning that Fact-checking is Big Tech’s version of an Emmy where other fact-checkers kisses each other’s backside instead of caring if they are correct or not. Nowhere is there a place for me, the lowly user to rate their accuracy mind you. Then it goes on to tell me how I can report information to be checked by the all-wise ones. Then, tucked way down on the page is a link to “provide feedback on stories you think are false” which is where I (stupidly) assumed I could get redress, but alas – that is not the case. This link was to educate the lowly plebes on how to flag a post as false. So I went back and searched again. Don’t ask me how I got there, but I wandered onto the Business Help page. This page is for business accounts on Facebook to appeal fact-checks, ratings received, etc.and I really don’t qualify for the help on this page because my post was on my personal page and A QUOTE OF AN AUTHOR! This is the page, however, where the location of the omniscient one comes into play. Scroll down and you will see a list of countries – find yours in the list and click on it. Mine was from Australia (Do they not read C.S. Lewis down there?). That provides a link to the agencies in that country with which Facebook contracts. Click it and voila – your email program opens like magic like the red telephone in the Oval Office, you are provided a lifeline to dispute your sins. Oh. My. Goodness. After a few back-and-forths with the fact-checking gods, I was able to get my post cleared. No apology. Not even an “oops, my bad.” They just moved along to the next petitioner like they were handing out alms and I should be grateful. I am reminded of the poem by Rudyard Kipling, “The Gods of the Copybook Headings,” where the gods of the marketplace twist reality, promise peace, and fuller life which the people gladly embrace. Those who speak up are demonized, but prevail in the end because the gods of the copybook headings are “inescapable conditions inherent in human nature, witnessed by history, [and] ignored at our peril (JMS Tompkins). I pray that is true because our world has gone insane. Real objective Truth is discoverable and 2 plus 2 will always equal 4.

Will this be the most anti-American Independence Day yet?

Will This Be The Most Anti-American Independence Day Yet? | Opinion BRYAN GRIFFINON 7/1/21 AT 6:00 AM EDT   We are just a few days from the Fourth of July, and many who bear witness to current cultural trends are asking the obvious question: are we in for the most anti-American Independence Day yet? While some will proudly fly the American flag this Fourth, others will burn it. This divisive mood has been fed by school curricula, university syllabi, and corporate employee trainings that paint a dark picture of the formation of our country. Critical Race Theory (CRT), like other forms of Marxism, insists that the primary characteristic of any society is the conflict between its people. CRT divides people into two basic and conflicting camps—oppressors and the oppressed—on the basis of physical differences. CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL ARTICLE

Whatever Happened to Penny Candy? book review

Book Review: Whatever Happened to Penny Candy? by Richard J. Maybury How many times have you gone into a store and noticed the price of something has increased? It happens all the time. For that matter, I can remember listening to my grandmother tell me about her experiences when she was young in the 30’s and early 40’s. She used to be able to take a penny into the candy store and buy 3 items with it! So, what happened? We are inundated daily with “experts” on the news channels spewing economic terms like “inflation,” “deficits,” and “monetary policy.” But, what do those terms actually mean and why are there differing philosophies on how to manage them? Years ago, I came across a book that began an economic journey for me and provided such clarity on answers to the questions above (and more), that I always keep a copy of the book to give to others when the need arises. Whatever Happened to Penny Candy? By Richard J. Maybury was originally written in 1989 and begins a series of books tackling the subject of economics for middle to high school level children. However, the truths taught in the books are wonderfully explained from the perspective of a Constitutional Capitalist, which the author calls a Juris Naturalist (natural law). The books are rife with quotes from our founding fathers and an adherence to their economic philosophies. I highly recommend everyone read the Uncle Eric series of books, but especially Whatever Happened to Penny Candy? to educate yourself rather than relying on “experts” who probably don’t adhere to many of the ideologies of the founding fathers.

Blacklisted by History book review

Book Review: Blacklisted by History by M. Stanton Evans What if I told you that what you think you know about Senator Joe McCarthy and his investigations into Communists working in the United States government was wrong? The conventional image of the Senator from Wisconsin is of a bully, a liar, and a demagogue but that is the media narrative which has yet to be corrected after over 60 years of gaslighting. The author presents a well-researched narrative detailing McCarthy’s rise to prominence through his censure and beyond. Using original documents obtained from the Senate and FBI archives; personal papers of those who “starred” in the drama; and digging through both de-classified documents from the United States and the former Soviet Union, M. Stanton Evans takes great pains to lay out what was a 1950s version of the Deep-State Cabal. The parallels to today are stunning and show that the United States government hasn’t changed much from the 1940s. Many people today confuse what Senator McCarthy investigated with the House Un-American Affairs Committee (HUAC) and rarely use primary sources to tell the story. What the author found was that people who reference McCarthy in their narrative cite other authors creating a circular narrative where one wrong person cites another instead of investigating themselves. Thomas Jefferson told us to “Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear.” So, years ago, I began a deep-dive into Senator McCarthy – what I found was disturbing until I came across Blacklisted by History which put to rest many of my underlying reservations about the “consensus” that McCarthy was public enemy number one.

Is It Time to Cancel Darwin?

Is It Time to Cancel Darwin? Today’s society is hyper-sensitive to anything that is or was, racist. The perception of racism is so “critical” that we have to change our lexicon (no more “Brown Bag Lunch”); forego long-established disciplines (Mathematics, for instance); abstain from the masterpieces (Shakespeare, Mozart, and others); even “climate change” and Dr. Seuss have not escaped the new race police. These seemingly innocuous issues linked to racism are one part of Grievance Studies called Critical Race Theory where everything and everyone (except for white males) are victims of racial discrimination which must be eliminated, changed, or apologized for. When the racial police come after someone or something, they continually attack online; in the media; and, in growing numbers of incidents, in person. The point of the attacks is to “cancel” the object of revulsion – statues must be torn down; buildings must be renamed; history must be rewritten, and white people must grovel. This brings me to Darwin, who, along with Karl Marx are the saviors to the Left. Both men wrote their tomes in the mid-1800s, (from a very white Europe I might add). Both were white males, misogynists, and racists – strike one. I would also add that both men were also anti-religion, anti-freedom, and anti-Semites. Darwin’s book, On the Origin of Species, has been retitled over the years with publishers quietly dropping more than half of the original title from later printings. The book had been titled, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life (emphasis mine). In his later book, Descent of Man, Darwin makes very clear that his “favored race” is Caucasian calling all others savage and uncivilized. Karl Marx took Darwin’s evolutionary ideas in the physical realm and applied them to the social and economic realm with the estimated results to be at least 100 million people killed and countless others imprisoned, tortured, or worse. Those 100 million people were citizens of countries under Marx’s philosophy who were killed by their own state, not enemies killed in wars of expansion. Let that sink in for a moment – that means that leaders in these countries sanctioned the killing of their own citizens in order to keep control. Why? Because it defies human nature, squashes freedom, and kills innovation. Plato himself came to that conclusion when contemplating his Socialist Utopia in Republic. There is clear causation between evolution presented as science and the horrors of the 20th century perpetrated by Nazis, Soviets, and others. If we all came from nothing, then what value is human life? Eugenics is just a way for humans to “help” the evolutionary process. Racism is nothing more than recognizing the evolutionary progression of one “species” over another (Darwin used species and race interchangeably). I understand that Logic has been removed from schools and common sense is no longer very common, but based on the recent calls for everything the United States embodies to be canceled because we had slaves and segregation (news-flash: nearly every country on the planet has slavery in their history), shouldn’t we also cancel other philosophies that have perpetuated the same?

Be Bold

by Allen West Back in 1998 I was assigned to the 1st Battalion (Air Assault), 377th Field Artillery Regiment at Ft. Bragg as the Executive Officer, second in command. The Battalion was nicknamed the “Gunslingers”, and my call sign was Gunslinger 5. Ours was a unique mission in that we were a medium caliber, 155mm, cannon artillery unit whose mission was to train and be employed on the battlefield via helicopter insertion. Our soldiers had to be some really gutsy Bubbas to stand on top of a sling load prepped cannon while an Army CH-47 helicopter comes down overhead…and secure the artillery piece to the sling load towing hook of the chopper. And yes, they had to do that in pitch black darkness. That is why our Battalion motto was four simple words, “Be Bold, Air Assault”. Continue reading

by Gary Galles                                      www.mises.org/blog   Recently, Harvard political theorist Danielle Allen wrote in the Washington Post of “The most important phrase in the Pledge of Allegiance” — “with liberty and justice for all.”  Allen recognized that justice required “equality before the law” and that freedom exists “only when it is for everyone.” But she confused democracy — defined as progressives “build[ing] a distributed majority across the country, as is needed for electoral college victory” — with liberty, which is very different. Similarly, she replaced the traditional meaning of justice (“giving each his own,” according to Cicero) with a version of “social justice” inconsistent with it. And her two primary examples of rights — “rights” to education and health care — were inconsistent with both liberty for all and justice for all.   Continue reading

By Joan Alagood BUILD TRUST.  SERVE THE PEOPLE.  INNOVATE.  PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST Café con Tampa hosted a wide ranging discussion about Hillsborough and Pinellas transportation ideas with guest speakers Sharon Calvert, Tom Rask and Barb Haselden Friday, February 17, at the Oxford Exchange. Most of the audience in the room was pro-transit - yet the three speakers were concerned citizens who asked politicians and power brokers to build trust first, to serve the people not the power brokers, to ask questions before jumping to solutions, to treat transportation like a business case and to work in 10 year increments, no longer.

Happy 208th Birthday President Abraham Lincoln - Our First Republican President: Let's Set Revisionist History Straight

"Contrary to self-serving revisionist histories" (and falsehoods of the political Left,)  "the issue of slavery was the driving force of Lincoln's career. Lincoln was well aware of the ruinous effects of slavery on both moral and economic grounds."    I Am a Lincoln Republican  By Yervand Kochar    November 14, 2009           www.americanthinker.com While interviewing people on the streets of L.A. and N.Y. for our documentary about the legacy of the Civil War, we came to the staggering realization of how many allegedly well-educated people assumed that Abraham Lincoln was a Democrat fighting slave-owning Republicans in the South.   Continue reading

New government audit reports: Islamic terrorists are operating in Mexican border towns

via Judicial Watch                 http://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/2017/01/govt-audit-elevated-terrorism-threat-u-s-mexico/ A new government audit confirms what Judicial Watch has been reporting for years, that Islamic terrorists are operating in Mexican border towns and infiltrating the United States to carry out attacks.

Book Review: Big Agenda: President Trump’s Plan to Save America

By Jeff Lukens     For years, grassroots conservatives have been searching for their voice only to be stymied by Washington Insiders. Conservative anger has risen to the point where some have labelled the Obama years as a pre-revolutionary state of affairs. Something had to give, but Republicans were either too tongue-tied or too spineless to fight against the liberal onslaught personified by Barack Obama. We have been searching for a leader to fight back and we finally found it in the person of Donald Trump. Continue reading

Mia Love's Powerful, Passionate Speech in Support of Innocent Human Life

by Matthew K. Burke @ politistick.com Republican Utah Congresswoman Mia Love spoke at the 44th annual March for Life on Friday in a powerfully impassioned plea for the support of innocent human life that should go down as one of the greatest pro-life speeches in history. WATCH Mia Love's Speech here:  https://youtu.be/aQQ2_B7oDe8 Surrounded by hundreds of thousands, Rep. Love told the moving story of her parents, who came to America 41 years ago from Haiti and her parent’s decision to let her live even though it may have been more “convenient” for the young immigrants to do what progressive leftists urge — have an abortion. “It was inconvenient for them to find out they were pregnant with their third,” Love explained about her parent’s choice. “Because both had to work multiple jobs to make ends meet. Some would say it would have been easier for them to have an abortion but this couple had to make a difficult choice to protect the life of their child or always wonder what might have been,” Love told the huge crowd rallying in Washington, D.C.

"Trump’s revolutionary act is a breeze of freedom on a sea of regulation."

by Judge Andrew Napolitano                  Fox News    https://youtu.be/J2vV0JD978g Within four hours of becoming president of the United States, Donald Trump signed an executive order intended to limit immediately the effects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) in ways that are revolutionary. With the stroke of a pen, the president assaulted the heart of the law that was the domestic centerpiece of his predecessor’s administration. How did this happen? How can a U.S. president, who took an oath to enforce the laws faithfully, gut one of them merely because he disagrees with it? Continue reading

How George Soros Destroyed the Democratic Party

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. It was the end of the big year with three zeroes.

How America Won the Election

By Ted Noel, M.D. www.americanthinker.com America is not a place. America is an idea that lives in a place called the United States.
