on Vital Issues for American Patriots Part 2
Exclusive: Christopher Monckton of Brenchley has stout medicine for U.S. politicians The trouble with clinging to the fiscal cliff is that all you see is the cliff, inches in front of your nose. You don't see the wider reality that faces America and the West in 2013: the reality of impending national bankruptcy and third-world status. ... To balance the budget – which must now be done at once, or America is finished – the tax hikes and spending cuts would have had to be six or seven times bigger than the paltry changes that all the stramash is about. But if neither side in politics dares to take puny measures that would cut the annual shortfall between federal tax revenues and federal spending by as little as one-sixth, then how are they ever going to get rid of 100 percent of the annual deficit and balance the books? The answer, alas, is inflation. If you are poor, if you are working-class, if you are on a fixed retirement income, be afraid, be very afraid. Inflation is coming. Inflation is theft. It is robbery by the State against anyone who holds money assets. So-called "quantitative easing" – or printing money – means all existing money is worth less than before. The rich keep their assets in real estate, art-works, bullion, vintage autos – anything but cash. To them, inflation is just about irrelevant. To everyone else, inflation is a nightmare. But – in the short term – it is the easy option for the governing class. Inflation reduces the value of the dollar in your pocket or under your mattress or in your zero-interest checking account. Inflation also reduces the value of the federal government's vast accumulated debt. That is why, every time the debt gets big enough, governments turn on the printing presses and invent money that did not exist before. It is time for governments and people to face reality. Here are some of the things Western nations can no longer afford, whether the left likes it or not:

Evidence shows explosions, fires would be prelude to catastrophe The EMP Commission pointed out that control systems and mutual interdependence are two of the most important aspects of modern infrastructures that pose the greatest vulnerability in all of the country's infrastructures. "While conferring economic benefit and enormous new operational agility, the growing dependence of our infrastructures on these omnipresent control systems represents a new vector of vulnerability in the evolving digital age of the 21st century, such as cyber security," the commission said. SCADAs are major electronic control systems that are used for data acquisition and control over large critical infrastructures that are distributed over large geographical areas. SCADA systems are especially used in such critical infrastructure applications as electrical transmission and distribution, water management and oil and gas pipelines. ... "It is safe to say that no one has planned for, and few have even imagined, a scenario with the loss of hundreds or even thousands of nodes across all of the critical national infrastructures, all simultaneously," the EMP commission report said. "That, however, is precisely the circumstance contemplated by an EMP attack scenario." The problems that result mean other systems or networks would collapse because the first failed.
The government is planning to spend about 16 BILLION dollars to implement programs that are basically the same as those paid for in the 1950s. Many have been given the false impression that Common Core State Standards and the International Baccalaureate programs will reform and improve education. However, these two newest educational policies are an extension of old policies that weakened the American educational system and destroyed its international reputation for excellence. ... According to experts in English and math, the skills as presented in the Common Core curricula are "soft". Requirements for a math program for students in third grade are now delayed until fourth grade. Another lowering of academic standards! Experts want more time to focus on encouraging American students to exchange their Constitution and national sovereignty for a submissive role in a world community. To create a more compassionate population, the IBO document explains that world citizenship needs to begin early through development of an understanding of the nature and value of one's own culture. The result has been a NEW understanding of American culture through a rewriting of history—one that belittles or denies those values that encourage Americans to achieve their dreams. Bloom's goal of developing a "world view" is being aggressively implemented through CCSS and IB to prepare students for social and political change determined by federal goals. Those who see school choice as an escape from these ideologies are often misled. Bob Jones University Press, a main resource for educational materials used in Christian and home school settings, prepares text books and tests that incorporate CCSS. Parents from across the United States send Advocates for Academic Freedom examples of lessons imposed upon their children that undermine American values and traditions. American Pageant by Kennedy and Cohen is used in a Catholic school. The text does identify America as a republic, but it provides a definition for republic and republicanism that actually describes collectivism. Public School teachers express concern that their texts do not mention that America is a republic with God-given freedoms. Parents and teachers complain that the Constitution, the Federalist Papers, and other founding documents have been omitted because they are "too religious". Have Americans surrendered their republic without shedding a drop of blood?
Emmett McGroarty and Jane Robbins, in their white paper "Controlling Education from the Top: Why Common Core Is Bad for America," describe the pressure and sleight-of-hand that led governors to sign onto a commitment that was then changed before the ink had fully dried. They reveal that rather than being a state-led reform initiative, as touted, the new standards were written by a few well-connected, but non-qualified, education entrepreneurs. The history goes back decades, but in the most recent phase, the vision for Common Core was set in 2007, by the Washington-based contractor, Achieve, Inc., in a document entitled Benchmarking for Success. The question is: Why was Bill Ayers keynoting a conference attended by the two highest officials in the Education Department and by Achieve, essentially the project manager of the nationalized education curriculum? It may be years before we know how often Ayers visited the White House, but the Ayers educational brand or philosophy is all over Common Core. Some states are waking up. Virginia pulled out when Governor Bob McDonnell was elected. Georgia, Indiana, Utah, South Carolina, and others have begun the effort to extricate themselves. ... Common Core thus promises to eliminate the idea of a common core of knowledge—through the privileging of leftist "informational texts" and material presented in a scattershot manner. The national and cultural identity that is conveyed through a wide and interconnected exposure to literary works from Mother Goose to Shakespeare will be undermined. While proponents tout a close, critical reading of short texts, or excerpts, the truth is that the approach lends itself to infinite interpretations wildly off the mark. The approach—where uninformed groups of students speculate about "original documents"—is intended to make them radically skeptical of any historical legacy. Original documents are presented in such a manner as to actually diminish them.
Say goodbye to your children's privacy. Say hello to an unprecedented nationwide student tracking system, whose data will apparently be sold by government officials to the highest bidders. It's yet another encroachment of centralized education bureaucrats on local control and parental rights under the banner of "Common Core." As the American Principles Project, a conservative education think tank, reported last year, Common Core's technological project is "merely one part of a much broader plan by the federal government to track individuals from birth through their participation in the workforce." The 2009 porkulus package included a "State Fiscal Stabilization Fund" to bribe states into constructing "longitudinal data systems (LDS) to collect data on public-school students." These systems will aggregate massive amounts of personal data — health-care histories, income information, religious affiliations, voting status and even blood types and homework completion. The data will be available to a wide variety of public agencies. And despite federal student-privacy protections guaranteed by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, the Obama administration is paving the way for private entities to buy their way into the data boondoggle. Even more alarming, the
Four of the most notable politicians in the report were President Obama, Nevada Democratic US Senator and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
To whom did Saul Alinsky dedicate his manifesto "Rules for Radicals"? — a book whose purpose was to deconstruct Christian nations and Western free-market republics. Let us read the dedication in the author's own words: Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins – or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom – Lucifer ... Gideon teaches us that good intentions often lead to tragic consequences. So it is with America's greatest liberal progressive presidents: Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, FDR, LBJ, Nixon, Clinton and Obama. All of these men had "good" intentions by stealing money from the rich and redistributing it to the poor who didn't earn it. In the end, all that their Marxist, socialist, Keynesian schemes achieved was endemic laziness, societal ignorance, pathology and making Americans voluntary slaves to an ever-expanding government which grows at about $4 billion per day to our present $14.5 trillion debt.... Long before the Pilgrims, the Puritans and the founding of America in 1607, liberalism in all of its myriad of permutations, shadows and disguises infected the history of humanity – from Nimrod's Tower of Babel (precursor to the United Nations), Baal worship, idolatry, materialism, paganism, witchcraft, doctrine of Jezebel (pagan worship of god through sex), doctrine of Molech (child sacrifice [i.e., abortion]), to slavery, secular humanism, democracy, Darwinism, communism, socialism, unionism, progressivism and living constitutionalism – it's all liberal fascism, it's all anti-God, anti-intellectual and Obama is using these pernicious ideas to purposely destroy America and deconstruct the U.S. Constitution so that he, the Democratic Party and its globalist allies can rule into perpetuity.

Note: This reflects the progressive/left's continuing push to pass secular laws that do not pass the muster of our Judeo-Christian nation's Declaration of Independence/Constitution or her God! They believe in a "living constitution" which means it's rudderless or has no fixed foundation. How's that working out? Although this column was written several years ago, it stands as true today as it did in 2006.
The American Union will last as long as God pleases. It is the duty of every American Citizen to exert his utmost abilities and endeavors to preserve it as long as possible and to pray with submission to Providence "esto perpetua" [may it last forever].

Former state senator files suit to block General Fund budget from taking effect MONTGOMERY ---Former state Sen. John Rice of Auburn has sued Gov. Robert Bentley and others to block next year's $1.68 billion General Fund budget from taking effect, arguing that it violates state laws requiring that state budgets be balanced. ''The Alabama constitution prohibits this reckless and irresponsible budget,'' says the lawsuit, which was filed Tuesday in Montgomery County circuit court. The lawsuit asks the court to block Bentley, state Finance Director Marquita Davis and state comptroller Thomas White from spending money under the General Fund for the 2013 fiscal year, which starts Oct. 1.
Services on time, on budget by making government private But a small town in Georgia has developed what could serve as a model for municipal government to provide services to citizens at a cost they actually can afford. Oliver Porter – a lecturer and consultant with an engineering background, an apostle of free market economics and the first interim city manager for Sandy Springs, Ga. – explained how it was done. First, some history. Sandy Springs became a city in 2005 through a popular vote referendum. The new mayor, Eva Galambos, a retired economist, worked with the city council to quickly launched what Porter calls the first American city that "outsourced almost everything." Eight years later, the city of 100,000 people boasts new roads, more neighborhood sidewalks, a state-of-the-art traffic system and award-winning parks. All of it has occurred with no tax increases – even as major capital improvements have been funded. Before cityhood, Sandy Springs was part of unincorporated Fulton County, and residents were poorly policed while paying high taxes for few services. "In June 2005 we had to find vendors for public services, and we had to have them in place when the city began on December 1," Porter remembers. "I don't know what you would do if you had to have public services in six months, but (shopping around with private vendors) is what I did." He bid out 12 main services to companies that often outsourced to smaller vendors. When certain guarantees couldn't be met, the city chose someone else. "In the contracts," he said, "the companies providing the services had to pledge to have a live person answer phone calls and emails 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They also had to commit to responding to a problem within 48 hours – and the appropriate elected council member is kept in the loop with the progress of the work order or issue." Porter further explained the public-private model. "The key is writing the contracts well," he said. 'But there is incentive for the companies because if they screw up, we can use someone else. That doesn't happen in government. It is also essential that a cost-benefit analysis be done with each contract." Sandy Springs, he said, "outsources everything with the exception of public safety, mainly because of liability issues." "However, police officers and firefighters are on 401(k), defined contribution plans, not pension programs. The city owns no buildings – not even city hall— and little equipment, which means it doesn't have to worry about depreciation on property or assets. So the city has no long-term liabilities." He said the Sandy Springs example is catching on in Georgia, with five other cities now following the model and others, including counties, considering or opting for more privatization of services. The model is also capturing national attention. ... "The big cities in trouble need to be looking at this model," he said, "but the big obstacle is politics because local officials all too often aren't willing to consider alternatives because they were elected under one system and they are afraid to look at other models even if they are more efficient and cost-effective. "I tell every city official I meet: 'Your main job is not to supply jobs – it is to serve taxpayers.'" The city's success has been cited by the New York Times, which said: "To grasp how unusual this is, consider what Sandy Springs does not have. It does not have a fleet of vehicles for road repair, or a yard where the fleet is parked. It does not have long-term debt. It has no pension obligations. It does not have a city hall, for that matter, if your idea of a city hall is a building owned by the city. Sandy Springs rents. The town does have a conventional police force and fire department, in part because the insurance premiums for a private company providing those services were deemed prohibitively high. But its 911 dispatch center is operated by a private company, iXP, with headquarters in Cranbury, N.J." WND CEO Joseph Farah wrote in a recent column: "Many cities have experimented with outsourcing, but none has taken it as far as Sandy Springs. Even the Times, normally a bleeding heart voice for expansion of government, admits there is nothing amiss about Sandy Springs, which hints it's one of the 'purest examples of a contract city.' Everything works just fine. And it's been like this since the town incorporated in 2005."
SPOILER explores the political, economic and philosophic ethos of the past 98 years for insights into the debt-driven, welfare-warfare state and ways Americans can get back to a Constitutional republic. Analyzing the reasons no third party has been successful since John C. Fremont and Abraham Lincoln ran on the new Republican Party around 1860, SPOiLER offers a platform --based on the political strategies of Nelson Hultberg --that could inspire an existing, or new, third party to win, thus putting an end to the DemoPublican monopoly.
