On Segment One of this episode I discuss the 50th Anniversary of the Immigration and Nationality Act Signed by LBJ and how we’re all worse off because of it. Segment Two is a discussion of The Climate Change “Perfect Con,” and how alarmists now want the Obama administration to prosecute corporations and deniers under the RICO act. Segment Three furthers the Climate Change discussion, juxtaposing it with the inaccurate science of predicting and tracking hurricanes.

The political world is still buzzing over the incendiary comments New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo made regarding his views on Republicans, more specifically, conservatives.
Even dyed in the wool New Yorker Sean Hannity said he would make plans to leave his state. Something I thought he would never do or even say. Good for Sean.
Now I don’t know if Cuomo really believes the things he said or whether he simply sees the final transformation of the Democratic Party into the Communist Party via New York City Mayor DeBlasio? It may be a calculated attempt to shift way left. Who knows – who cares. He said what he said and there’s really no walking it back.
It’s funny though, with all the problems plaguing his state and the country, he and the rest of the leftists insist on blaming conservatives for ruining the country. We are why the country is falling apart. It certainly couldn’t be the combination of almost 200 years of rotten, fascist, racist Democrat policies. Whatever do I mean, you ask?

“The Progressive Movement has profoundly changed America for the better.”
If you said it was the great conservative, Newt Gingrich, you’d be correct. I’m kidding about the whole great conservative thing.
Yet today, that dope, Rick Perry drops out of the race and follows Sarah Palin by endorsing Newt. Has the world turn completely upside down? Heck, even Rush Limbaugh calls Newt a conservative.
This is yet another example of why I repeat, Newt Gingrich is NOT a conservative. Newt Gingrich is a big government Progressive. He has stated, on several occasions, his favorite Presidents were progressives.
I have personally heard him give positive statements regarding them all. He didn’t describe them as progressives, but has called them out by name. Andrew Jackson, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson & FDR. The only one he left out was LBJ. What true conservative, with any reverence and understanding of the Constitution, could possibly think this; much less say it out loud. In my opinion, these 4 are not only, not good, but are the 4 worst presidents in history!
Then why would he do this? Why would he speak favorably of these gentlemen? That’s an easy question to answer. He knows, as do many of us, the general public has been taught next to nothing of our history. He throws these historical quips and quotes out during the debates. He sounds like the great historian & is never challenged due to the dearth of historical knowledge of the other candidates or the moderators.
On that note I would like to present one of the great men Newt has recently quoted & appears to have great respect for; President Andrew Jackson.
Many believe the Father of Progressivism was Theodore Roosevelt. In fact it was Andrew Jackson. Andrew Jackson came to prominence as the Founding Fathers died out and I believe the republic that they envisioned also died with Jackson. He could not have done what he did if they had been around.
Jackson believed in Manifest Destiny, which is kind of the perversion of Divine Providence. Divine Providence occurs when you live your life in a good and moral way, try your best and pull yourself up by the bootstraps, God will open doors for you. You know, “Good things happen to good people”.
Manifest Destiny is more of the, “Get out of my way. I’m on a mission from God”. It’s my way or the highway. Like all progressives, he knew better than the people.
Founding Fathers = Divine Providence, Progressives = Manifest Destiny. It’s no surprise Jackson was also the father of the democrat party.
Although he declared it, he wasn’t championing the working class or Ron Paul supporters. He claimed to be fighting for the “little man”. Sound familiar? In fact he just wanted to shut the bank down because he couldn’t control it. Jackson simply wanted to replace it with another bank completely controlled by him and his party. Progressives must control all things for the betterment of society. They arrest control by pretending to be the champions of the “Little Guy”.
Most Americans think the Civil War was fought solely about slavery. In fact Andrew Jackson started the ball rolling when he signed the Tariff of 1832 that taxed imported and exported goods. The North grew successfully
under this tariff. The tax was rough on the southerners. As Andrew Jackson continued to tax goods, southerners found it hard to sell their products to the English and suffered badly.. South Carolina firmly refused to pay the taxes and threatened to withdraw from the Union if the tariff was enforced. It was eventually rewritten, but the damage between the North & South had been done.
Like the progressives that would follow, he was also a flaming racist. He believed neither Indians nor blacks should own any property in the U.S. He particularly hated Indians.
We have all heard of the “Trail of Tears”. That was Andrew Jackson’s doing. He declared war on the Eastern Indian Tribes, signing the Indian Removal Act. There would be no tribes east of the Mississippi. Many Indians were massacred. Those he didn’t have killed, were driven west along; you guessed it,
“The Trail of Tears”. Many of the Indians died on the trail (roughly 25%), freezing to death.
His excuse for the atrocity was, “Well, we needed the land, so we took it”. Manifest Destiny.
Andrew Jackson was a BAD dude & Newt goes out of his way to speak highly of him.
This is the advertised “True Conservative”?
Don’t be fooled!
