In an emotional speech where he rolled out his executive actions on gun ownership in the United States, President Barack Obama made a clear statement that neither he nor any of his cabinet offices are in the business of confiscating legal firearms owned by American citizens. His tone was clear and emphatic when he discussed the 2nd amendment as a fundamental right. However, conservative writers here in the digital realm are already stoking more fear upon a subject based upon fear.

Writing at Breitbart.com, Awr Hawkins gives readers the idea that those collecting Social Security will have their guns confiscated. This is simply not true and even hawkins has to explain deeper into the column that the Social Security Administration will be brought on board to report to NICS any information regarding mental health and competence of persons declared disabled and unable to manage their payments based upon a mental health diagnosis. Even Congress is on board to assure that the mentally ill do not gain access to firearms and thereby reducing both the potential for mass shootings and the number of gun suicides in America.

There has been quite a bit of consternation regarding the constitutionality of these executive orders from the Right. Rick Ungar at Forbes magazine has an excellent take on and a breakdown of the twenty-three line items in these orders. Do take the time to read this.

You do realize that your time is running out? When President Obama leaves office in January 2017 there will be no profit to be made from the sort of bigotry you swim in currently. Therefore, none of the elites that share your ideology, with nothing to gain financially from bigotry will jettison you and your kind for those who simply hate the Clintons. This must be a truly sad time for you Tim because there just is not enough hatred for Hillary Clinton to justify the pounds of seething vitriol those with your retrograde ideology have flung at the sitting President.

First the White House,

then Congress,

Then SCOTUS,

Then governorships,

then state legislatures,

Then county governments,

then city councils.

We already have the major cities, the American youth, American minorities, American women under 45, the LGBT community and the unions. So what are the conservatives, the right and worse the far right left with? The church goers who are not Christians? The frightened millions of those who feel their right to have the power of Life and Death in their hands in the form of a gun is more important than the lives of living breathing people? The lifeless people who feel that a woman who has been raped bears a responsibility to give birth to the product of that rape? Those black hearts who feel that a gay or lesbian or transgendered person is somehow less Human than they are because of who they love? The Right has lost. Those with this arcane ideology will lose nothing but their prideful desires for control and the power they have too long held over those who do not share their worldview.

You will still be free to worship as you please; but you will not be able to use the power of the pulpit, the synagogue or the mosque to define what others do.

You will still have your precious guns despite all the blood they spill; but you will not have the right to command an arsenal that can threaten the Peace and power of any government, be it Federal, State or Local.

You will still have Freedom of Speech; but fewer and fewer people over the coming decades will wish to hear the angry protestations of the Right because they are tainted with racist nationalist bigotries that are almost as old as Mankind.

It has been nearly 200 years since a political party destroyed itself right before the eyes of the American people. Now as it was then, the party that died was blind to the change coming and was overwhelmed by it. The new party that rose from the ashes saved the nation from destruction and preserved the greatest Union Terra has ever known. That party was the GOP; its opposition was the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party was rooted in white nationalism, bigotry and the economic need to maintain slavery in the agrarian South using religion as a justification. The GOP was the party of abolitionists who saw the potential in all Men who lived on American soil were and should be full Citizens.

The Union was saved; world wars were fought and still the scars of the Civil War and a Reconstruction still were shown on the backs and necks of America’s black citizens and those who saw them as equals for more than one hundred years. The sins of the Democratic Party’s past were absolved by FDR and his New Deal. The greatest series of government programs to right the economic ship of state in the history of the nation. Democrats became the new abolitionist seeking to abolish poverty; first for the white poor and then for all.

There are and have been millions who took unfair advantage of this system over time and those who abused welfare to their own detriment have been far out shined simply by those millions upon millions who did not become dependent on that system. And this is a teachable moment about the difference between We, Ourselves and those like you Tim. While you would focus on cities that are experiencing high rates of black crime you would ignore the crises of prescription drug abuse and suicide in your own race. While you would shout about the 47 million who depend on the pittance that SNAP offers a family those on ideological right shout at the Heavens about what a waste it is to offer a child $142 a month for food. A living child who is poor has less value to you than a child in the womb. Where is the logic in this argument?

Oh how grand it must have been for people like you one hundred years ago. A feeling of near deity like omnipotence with the only possible threat to your dominance coming from others like you that might whisper some gossip that placed a black mark on your familial reputation. Crime, divorce, alternative lifestyles and mental illness could place you on a social tier just above all those minorities that were tortured by the terrorists of the age who then were no better than ISIS is today.

But your time of worry is nearly at an end. We, Ourselves, of The Collective will ask one simple favor of the dwindling number of Baby Boomer conservatives. Take to your knees and pray for Progressives that will lead America into the middle of this current century. And while you pray to your deities, We will pray to the Fates that the Progressives will be good stewards of the People’s Will and will protect those like you in your minority status better than those like you since time immemorial refused to do.

COULD PRESIDENT OBAMA WIN A THIRD TERM?

Posted in 2016 ELECTIONS, PRESIDENT OBAMA on 12/10/2015 by sarahbloch

sarah_bloch_9

Charlie Sperling of Breitbart wrote an article last night about Steve Kroft’s 60 Minutes interview of President Obama last night and now the conservatives are snarling their contempt once again. During the interview President Obama was asked if he thought he could win a third term and without batting an eye he said what anyone the American people would want as a leader should say, “Yes.” The 44th President of the United States, who is a constitutional lawyer, also made it clear that he knew and respected the law of the land and its political tradition by saying regarding the fact that he wished he could do more, “You know, it’s interesting. I– you go into your last year and I think it’s bittersweet. On the one hand, I am very proud of what we’ve accomplished and it makes me think, I’d love to do some more. But by the time I’m finished, I think it will be time for me to go. Because there’s a reason why we considered George Washington one of our greatest presidents. He set a precedent, saying that when you occupy this seat, it is an extraordinary privilege, but the way our democracy is designed, no one person is indispensable. And ultimately you are a citizen. And once you finish with your service, you go back to being a citizen. And I– and I think that– I think having a fresh set of legs in this seat, I think having a fresh perspective, new personnel and new ideas and a new conversation with the American people about issues that may be different a year from now than they were when I started eight years ago, I think that’s all good for our democracy. I think it’s healthy.”

And the President is right in this. But his response to Kroft’s question is still drawing ire from conservatives who have failed time and time again to thwart the efforts of the most Progressive President since FDR. So we did a little research here at the Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork to get a sense of where the sitting President would fare in a third run for office and the answers are surprising.

President-Obama-Logo1

It’s a given that if there is one thing that has driven money to those who profit from the gaping political divide in America in 2015 it is the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama. The first run in 2008 was strictly about race. Had any person less honorable than John McCain been the GOP nominee that would have been the main theme in the election: “Can you trust a black man in the White House who isn’t carrying a serving tray?” A third term for Obama would be a boon for conservative pundits and commenters, news organizations both analog and digital and the never ending stream of political organizations and lobbying firms that have drawn in billions from the dying and frightened conservative base since Obama announced his candidacy in 2007. Conservative and Republican insiders differ on how they would feel about a third Obama run. Establishment GOP sources were horrified about such a prospect; not because they fear a third term or what Obama could or would hypothetically do, but because they know that four more years of a Progressive in the White House would almost certainly spell the end of the GOP as it exists today.

So what would be different about a third race for the White House? Well it would have removed the inevitability of Hillary Rodham Clinton. I doubt if she would run in 2016 if faced with challenging a twice elected Barack Obama. I do think the GOP field would be the same but minus Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina. I think the race would have been more about Cruz, Rubio and Bush with Trump as a bit more of a sideshow act. Even the conservative base would realize early that Trump is not electable in a national race.

elizabeth-warren

It is likely that the GOP establishment would lay down and Cruz would be the nominee with a high profile governor like Mike Pence being his running mate. In the light of the untimely passing of his son Beau Biden the Vice President would step down giving Obama a chance to create a legacy moment by choosing Senator Elizabeth Warren as his running mate setting her up to win in 2020 against a GOP and American Faith Party [Tea Party, Constitution Party, American Heritage Party you pick.–S.B.] adversaries.

Of course this would be a blowout dividing votes in the South and the Midwest rural counties giving Obama a decisive victory because the votes are in the cities. Cruz may shave off a few percentage points against Obama in respect to the Latino vote, however women between 18 and 45, the black vote and the labor vote would sweep Obama back into office in an electoral landslide. The good news in all of this with three major parties in the race the number of people who cast ballots would likely hit historical highs.

cavalor_hooves

At some future point in the history of the United States of America, citizens will look back on the 21st Century and wonder, deeply, how the nation survived. I am simply a humble demon journalist; I make no claim of being an oracle. Scholars in that far future time I suspect will be less blinded by partisan political ideology, race and gender and will run a true rule over what took place in the first fifteen years of the century in which you currently live.

Having said that, and not as mere preface, I can say with certainty that there is only the most superficial differences in the hate crimes perpetrated this summer in South Carolina and the most recent one in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Dylan Roof was angry and mentally ill; Bryce Williams was also angry and mentally ill. Dylan Roof slaughtered people in a place where such violence was never expected; Bryce Williams did the same and used the technology of the day to document his slaughter.

There are times in history when events make it possible for the Truth to become something that is determined simply by perspective. A true metaphysician would understand that this is fallacy, but when people are bound, tribally, by how they feel they are perceived by those that are different from them, the “other” who has alien ways and whose appearance is markedly different, the possibilities of what is “true” become infinite. Nothing is more True than that above statement as it relates to the United States of America today.

To simply point out the obvious is not enough. As Editor-in-Chief of this newspaper in its digital form for one day short of ten years now I have striven to impress upon those who work here that simply reporting the news is not enough. Journalism, like life, should be more than the a quotidian rehashing of what happened and to whom. What is documented for history must lead to some hope, must show a forward looking vision of courage in the face of many obstacles– it must inspire people to do more than sit in their living rooms, go to their jobs and mate. The written words of my staff here in Hell were meant to inspire to anger, to joy– to do something to make the lives of those outside your family, your community your tribe, –better.

And so I come back to Dylan Roof and Bryce Williams and their murder. I was asked last night over dinner by a friend who I thought was the more evil of the two. Without hesitation and being a member of the Hellac Bar I said, “Williams,” without missing a beat. My friend, who is a Human Being, implored that this could not be the case. Roof, he explained killed nine while Williams killed only two. I replied, after sipping at my glass of warm spicy broth, “Williams committed suicide and did not allow himself to judged by man. Therefore his crime against his own Soul makes him more selfish than Roof.” I could see that my friend of many decades was growing angry so I calmed him in the only rational way I know how. “John,” I said, “I am speaking from my own prejudicial point of view here in the Afterlife as a demon. I cannot know what the life of human is like or what emotions pour through their nerves or pound in their hearts. About these things I can only observe and surmise. From what I have observed the damage done by Roof and Williams have touched many Souls and done great harm. Here in Hell they will be dealt with according to our laws. This is all I know.”

In closing, I feel I need to share a second conversation that I had after a planning meeting to celebrate our tenth anniversary of this blog which commences tomorrow. Our Majordomo, Pain and I met in my office in the early evening and talked about the events of the day, the waning season and the years all of us have been engaged at this attempt to shed some light on what the Afterlife offers for those who slip the bonds of your dimension to join ours. Midway through the conversation, as the topic turned to race relations in America, Pain intoned, “African-Americans who have not had the full benefit of consumer capitalism must make a choice between what they perceive as culture and Moral Success. By Moral Success, We, Ourselves, of The Collective, mean the ascension to a state where a person has by their actions, daily, must be respected. This is a person who excels at their work no matter what field that work is in. This is a person who is compassionate to those who needs help. This is a person who respects the law. This is a person who seeks this same level of success in the First Life for all those she or he knows. This is a person who respects people and their property. This is a person who craves knowledge above all and loves themselves. African-Americans can continue on the road they are on and the playing field in the American economy and society will never be leveled. Or, they can strive to become a Moral Success by ceasing to deal drugs, having a disdain for their Creator-given intellect and believing they are the victim descendants of horrors that were perpetrated against their enslaved ancestors. The chains of one physical type of slavery were broken in the 1860s, the social slavery of Jim Crown was broken by the 1970s; and now in the 2010s, African-Americans must break the last chain that binds them–that of a culture that makes incarceration more important than matriculation, felonies more important than fatherhood and ignorance of the wider world in the name of tribalism more important than the rabid pursuit of intellectual stimulation. They must do these things in the poorest neighborhoods where they live because– black lives do matter.”

Over the next few days, this newspaper will be publishing articles celebrating the diversity of our staff, highlights of the major stories we have covered in the last ten Terran standard years and, hopefully, making you think.

DINESH D’SOUZA AND THE CANCER OF CONSERVATIVE BIGOTRY

Fundamentally, most conservatives in America are good people I think. What makes them good people is that they want the best for their families and friends and of course themselves. All people, likely save for the ISIS fighters and their doomed theocratic desires and the true, want a better life for the people they hold dearest. I will not try to compare the brutality of the so called Islamic State to the pettifogging men before the cameras of the modern American conservative movement; that would be a miscarriage of journalism.

nixon

What I can say is that actions like those of Dinesh D’Souza just recently on Twitter make me weary of American politics in a way I haven’t felt since the 1970s. Back then as a young man in New York City the entire town talked about one thing and one thing only, Richard Nixon. Like today, there was not a universal dislike of the American President. In fact, there were many who piled into my cab from 1973 until his resignation who felt Nixon was being bullied and blackmailed by the “liberal press” in the form of the Washington Post. Nothing angered New York Republicans in that time more than being dictated to by Washington while at the same time relishing the power of the GOP held White House.

denise odie joseph II

This brings me back to D’Souza who I feel would have fit right in with that cast of characters in the Nixon Administration. Like Haldeman, D’Souza saw himself as a conservative kingmaker of the future and that future was going to be 2016. But like many within the Nixon Administration, Dinesh D’Souza’s personal desires did not match the necessary public facade of fidelity and fairness that conservatives claim as their badge of honor. Conservaties are quick to denounce quietly anyone who openly is bigoted and this is known. What is clear to me as a journalist is that this bigotry which is pervasive in conservative quarters is accepted, gleefully, by the rank and file that will fracture off and form a third party as was suggested by Mark Noonan just this week.

Satanic Monster Drink lady

The bigots in the conservative movement today are no different from garden variety bigots of the Democratic Party of old. They are are white men and the white women to parade with them before the cameras in hope of getting their minutes of fame. They no longer hold the whip hand of the overseer, but they do stoke the fires of hatred on talk radio in the form of Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingraham and on television in the form of Sean Hannity and Megyn Kelly. Those voices are loud and clear to the 40,000,000 people in America who call themselves conservatives in the United States of America. Their racial and cultural bigotry, coupled with their belief that their religion is the one true religion and their certain knowledge that they are the rightful heirs of all the good things in the wealthiest nation on Terra is what they would serve to the future generations of Americans.

hindsight 2364
In Hindsight

Young people in the United States know better. They see the value of a global, multicultural world where people are accorded respect for their Humanity. It is a better world that we, Progressives, offer not a destruction or an annihilation of the old values. What we simply offer is the opposite of bigotry. Now change is something that tastes bitter in the mouths of conservatives who have held a golden chain around the necks of their people with fear and hatred for so many years. It’s easy to make the case that black people are simply stupid and violent if the only news you ever see supports that mantra. it’s easy to make people in rural communities that have little exposure to anything other than Fox News and Sunday sermons to believe that all gay men are pedophiles, all lesbians want to castrate men and all transgender people just want to lurk in bathrooms if this is their daily call to prayer from the radio to the television to the pulpit. My point here is that everyone Conservative, Progressive and Moderate alike need to take these last few years of the Obama Administration and come to a clear and simple realization. Obama is the President and he will be leaving office in a little less than two years. All the name calling, birther bullshit and bigotry have failed to tear this man down, shake his resolve or make America weaker. The smart kids in the room know that their is a great progressive future just over the next rise. That rise are the elections of 2016, 2018 and 2020. Standing on top of that promontory and looking out into the future I see all of the type of nonsense done by weak and corrupt men like D’Souza falling away like a fog revealing and America that can work together, prosper together and move Terra peacefully into the middle of the 21st Century.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SPEAKING THIS MORNING AT THE NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST

Posted in NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST 2015, PRESIDENT OBAMA on 05/02/2015 by Majordomo Pain

Pain_element

We, Ourselves, of The Collective, have fully enjoyed the first few moments of President Barack Hussein Obama’s address to the gathered dignitaries at the National Prayer Breakfast this morning. The Living can watch his message at C-SPAN just as We are. The Leader of the Free World just acknowledged the Dalai Lama in his message and this too is a positive message of Peace.
