Never let a good crisis go to waste, especially if you caused it in the first place.
Isn’t that the motto of modern liberalism?
We’re definitely seeing that slogan put into action by leftists, from the White House to the State House to the City Hall in the case of the border crisis.
As wave after wave of illegal immigrants — at least a fifth of whom are gang members and assorted criminals rather than innocent “children” — have invaded our country, politicians on the left side of the aisle have been whining and sermonizing about how we need to grant them all amnesty.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi just yesterday was crying about the “meanness” of people who didn’t want to support amnesty as it became apparent that John Boehner’s toothless border bill was going down to defeat.
Pelosi, from California’s Bay Area, has been on her high horse of late, rediscovering her alleged Catholic faith as she preaches to everyone within earshot about the poor suffering children coming across our border and how we have to take care of and nurture them and their families. My guess is either she needs a new staff for her mansion or she’s being subsidized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which sees the border crisis as an opportunity for businesses to underpay even more employees who are motivated not to speak to the authorities.
You’d think that politicians from California would be more circumspect on immigration, given the state’s history with illegal immigrants and the attendant crime rates and drug trade. But the border has been virtually open for so long that generations of illegal immigrants have raised families here and insinuated themselves into positions of influence until the state’s only real law on immigration is lawlessness.
Governor Moonbeam, Jerry Brown, has gone so far as to criticize Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who actually believes in protecting his state and country, by saying illegal immigrants prefer California. This week, Moonbeam was in South America when he suggested that global warming was behind the flood of illegal immigrants into the United States.
All of this Democratic talk is just to push amnesty, which the Left thinks will guarantee it stays in power for the next century, but will incidentally destroy what remains of the American way of life, culture and spirit.
But as insidious as the Left’s plotting is, the United Nations may have outdone even some of America’s traitorous politicians.
In addition to its immigration problem, California is in year umpty-ump of a manmade perpetual drought, brought on by poor water management and destruction of reservoirs and making resources off-limits in the name of environmentalism. For the past couple of years, nature has piled on California’s back with exceptionally low rainfall and snow.
Now, the United Nations is lurking in the wings, waiting to pounce.
The latest U.S. Drought Monitor Map shows 58 percent of the state is in “exceptional drought” stage, the highest level and up an amazing 22 percent from a mere week ago, when 36 percent of the state was in exceptional drought conditions.
If that’s not enough to signal a plot afoot, along comes Lynn Wilson, academic chair of Kaplan University by day and member of the United Nations climate change delegation by night.
According to her, the drought conditions in California are so bad, that the United Nations might have to step in.
Recently, the U.N. has been eyeing Detroit for intervention because that city has been cutting off the water supply to a large chunk of its poor residents. But now, the U.N. is thinking of moving up to an entire state.
And the plan this time isn’t just to bring in water. That would be too easy and sane.
According to Wilson, as reported by CNBC, the U.N.’s solution may be forced migration of the California population to somewhere else.
“Civilizations in the past have had to migrate out of areas of drought,” Wilson said. “We may have to migrate people out of California.”
Call me a worry-wart, but I become concerned when bureaucrats start spewing sentences where “people” are the object of the verb rather than the subject.
Wilson added that of coooouuuurrrrrssse there would be other measures tried first, such as importing water, but “migration can’t be taken off the table.”
If we had representative government in California like they have in Texas, that Wilson’s words would be the cue for the governor to tell the United Nations to pound sand, but Moonbeam, Pelosi, et al, probably consider Wilson’s comments as signalling more room for the Chosen People (illegal immigrants and drug cartel employees).
Well, if the U.N. is going to take over and start shipping people out of the state, per Agenda 21, I would suggest starting with anyone registered Democrat. That would really fix up the place.

I have an idea. Let’s bring Ebola here instead of worrying about it coming here unexpectedly. If we are going to put 300 million people in jeopardy, it should be our choice to do so rather than having it come as a surprise.
By now you have surely heard that at least one patient is set to arrive for treatment at a hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. I am seeing reports today that it might actually be two patients, and who says they will stop there?
Does anyone see anything wrong with this?
Anyone at all?
A few days ago, Dave Hodges reported that the CDC is quietly setting up Ebola Quarantine Stations across the U.S. I took a lot of flack for running that article on my website. As usual, I was called a conspiracy theorist who was trying to scare people.
Am I trying to scare you?
Yes I am. I have never denied that I try to scare people because something has to be done to awaken people from their stupor. We can scare you with facts just as easily as fantasy because things really are that bad. Not only is Ebola set to arrive voluntarily in the U.S. at any time, now we are starting to see evidence of those stations (he called them “centers”) that Dave was talking about.
A local CBS affiliate in Los Angeles is reporting:
The Centers for Disease Control have established a quarantine station at LAX to prevent the spread of the deadly Ebola virus from passengers coming off international flights.
The CDC is warning Americans to avoid the Ebola-ravaged nations of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea where more than 700 people have died.
Tom Bradley International Terminal now has a CDC quarantine station where health officials will determine whether a sick person getting off an international flight can enter the country.
“We’re fairly comfortable that if a patient were identified here in the U.S. , that the normal kinds of barrier nursing precautions that would be in place would prevent spread even before the person would be confirmed to be a case of Ebola,” Dr. Stephan Monroe said.
Two American aid workers have been infected with the virus in Liberia.
All of this seems perfectly logical except for the fact that we are bringing this disease to America. We aren’t just preparing for the worst. We are bringing it here. Has that started to sink in yet? As for the American aid workers that are mentioned, as well as the doctors and nurses who have become infected, do you not think that precautions were taken in these instances?
Ebola is not something that one invites into their living room.
KVIA.com, an ABC affiliate, is reporting that El Paso, Texas has also been chosen as a “quarantine station”:
The Centers for Disease Control has designated El Paso as one of 20 quarantine stations for the ebola virus.
The Sun City is part of a comprehensive system designed to prevent the spread of the disease in the United States.
While ebola has never been detected in the U.S., that doesn’t mean it can’t make its way to the country. The biggest concern is at airports with international flights and ports of entry, which there are a lot of in the Borderland.
“It’s a scary virus … Definitely,” said Dr. Hector Ocaranza, the health authority for the El Paso City/County Health Department. “Terribly deadly. It’s one of those viral hemorragic fevers. They haven’t found where it’s coming from, if it’s coming from an animal to the human or what. But we know there is human tissue transmission.”
That means it cannot be contracted like the flu, through the air. It can only be spread by direct contact with bodily fluids like saliva or secretions.
The CDC released a map showing the 20 quarantine stations designated across the country, including El Paso, mostly where international travelers arrive. The closest ones are in San Diego and Dallas.
The CDC website seems to be suffering from some issues today that might be caused by heavy traffic. The navigation is off and I have not been able to download the map or even see it. However, I can tell you that San Francisco and Houston are mentioned as quarantine stations as well. I also temporarily found an East Coast map but the page crashed. Is Michelle Obama’s schoolmate in charge of this site as well?
Again, all of this would make sense as being precautionary if we were not allowing illegal aliens, with dangerous diseases, into this country, and if we were not willingly endangering the lives of people by bringing Ebola to America.
Why use the back door when the front door works just fine?
This is either incredibly stupid or it is part of the plan.
Either way America is now playing with fire.

Gabby Franco talks about how the freedoms afforded to Americans through the Constitution make this the best country in the world.
(The Hill) Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has set up a procedural vote for September on a constitutional amendment to limit money in politics.
Before adjourning for a five-week recess on Friday, Reid filed cloture on the motion to proceed to S.J. Res. 19, which is designed to overturn two recent Supreme Court decisions that allowed corporations, labor unions and wealthy individuals to spend more money on federal elections.
The procedural vote on the constitutional amendment is set for 6 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 8.
Gavin Polone is the Emmy-nominated Hollywood producer known for projects that include “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Gilmore Girls,” “Twisted,” “Panic Room,” and “Zombieland.”
In a 2012 ReasonTV interview, Polone, who described himself as “more libertarian than anything else,” offered a glimpse of his views on foreign policy:
I just think our policy towards Israel is absolutely inconsistent with our policy towards other countries. They’re a nuclear power and then we try to get Pakistan or North Korea to give up their nukes or we have sanctions against Iran for developing nuclear weapons and then Israel has 200 nuclear weapons. That doesn’t make sense. Why are we doing this? And then I point out it’s because small groups of people who are pro-Israel are giving huge amounts of money to our corrupt legislators. And, you know, you say that, and then what happens? Then you wait. People still make my movies.
In addition to tweeting the #FreePalestine hashtag, Polone had this Twitter exchange in which he put his Israel Derangement Syndrome on full display.
And in today’s news:
WeAreChange is proud to celebrate the most enlightening hip-hop artists of all time. The following list was shaped in part by you the audience, WeAreChange staff, and the author. All of the artists on the list were chosen for creating songs full of good vibes, tight beats, original flow, and verses full of uplifting wisdom and knowledge.
Today’s movement towards truth, liberty, and alternative media was cultivated in part by seeds planted in hip-hop. While many of today’s MCs provoke the most savage of satire – like the Key & Peele sketch featuring a debauched rapper named Bling Benzy – here are the hip-hop artists whose music most enlightened a generation.
1. Immortal Technique – Unafraid to take on 9/11 truth or the links between the American government and the cocaine trade, as he did on “Peruvian Cocaine,” Immortal Technique made his name while selling his albums independently. Tech’s ferocious lyrics blazed the path to the truth movement for countless hip-hop fans.
2. 2Pac – On “Changes”, Tupac Shakur said “Instead of war on poverty/They got a war on drugs so the police can bother me.” While 2pac’s lyrics were all over the map in their focus, many feel he was killed for saying things like “I think this country still is run on gangs, Republicans, Democrats, The Police Department, The FBI, The CIA, those are gangs, you know what I mean.” The song “Revolution” calls out the hypocrisy of the media on violence, and points to U.S. military “If you investigate you’ll find out where it’s comin from/ Look through our history, America’s the violent one.” Revolutionary lyrics aside, Tupac’s soul inspired a generation.
3. KRS-One – Enlightening is the perfect word for the MC who shared the album “Spiritual Minded” with the world. Being “The Conscious Rapper” is just part of KRS-One’s repertoire. Speaking out in public, KRS-One dropped the perfect analogy for President Obama’s role in the machinery of shadow government – he’s only the manager at the Burger King.
4. Lupe Fiasco – From calling Obama a terrorist to rapping about World Trade Center Building 7, Lupe Fiasco is today’s cutting edge for real lyrics in rap. Using one of the most original flows of all-time, Lupe has crafted album after album of uplifting, inspiring hip-hop. In his spare time, he was also one of the few artists to show up to Occupy Wall Street.
5. Mos Def – “Killin fields need blood to graze the cash cow…/69 billion in the last 20 years/Spent on national defense but folks still live in fear.” That’s Mos Def’s “Mathematics.” As half of the superstar duo Black Star, Mos famously shouted out that “they” shot Tupac and Biggie, and that was just the start of the waves made by Mos Def. The rapper/actor named Yasiin Bey even got waterboarded to show people that the U.S. has been torturing prisoners.
All of the artists on this list made music that woke up the masses and helped inspire people to create a more free world.
If you enjoyed this list or feel like your favorite MC was robbed, stay tuned because PART 2 of The Ten Most Enlightening Hip-Hop Artists of All Time is coming soon.

The Weekly Standard reports that the IRS gave Lois Lerner a bonus, specifically a “retention bonus”—an incentive for her to keep her job harrassing, obstructing, and burdening conservative taxpayers whose money was used to offer her that bonus.
Media coverage of yesterday’s latest development in the Lois Lerner saga focused on her colorful description of conservatives as “crazies” and “a–holes” in emails released by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich).
Few news outlets highlighted her earlier emails in the same November 2012 email chain in which she discussed a partial deferral of her retention bonus — and then proceeded to complain about the riffraff destroying a beautiful upper-class village she toured on her part-business, part-pleasure hop across the pond to Great Britain.
The subject of the email exchange, “Suspension of Retention,” pertained to an encrypted document Lerner received and then forwarded to a colleague whose name was redacted. Lerner explained the contents of the document to this person, as he or she was unable to decrypt it:
“How silly. It just said they have to stop my retension [sic] pay b [sic] because I made too much this year and will give me the rest next year in a lump sum.”
“Silly,” is not the word I would use.
Consider the absurdity of Lerner receiving a retention bonus: taxpayers actually gave her more money than her original base salary — as much as 25 percent — for her noble, public service-oriented decision to remain in her position where she could continue to keep the “crazies” in check.
Government retention “incentives,” as the Office of Personnel Management labels them, are granted if an employee is viewed as indispensable and would leave without the bonus, or if an employee’s skills are needed during the time of an office relocation or closure and would also leave without the extra pay.
Yes, wouldn’t it have been a disaster to have Lois Lerner move on to another job and stop harassing taxpayers who wanted to exercise their First Amendment rights.
Remember, Lerner seems to have worked with others, including OSHA and the BATF.

The threats posed by a nuclear meltdown are catastrophic. What if the United States was facing 124 nuclear meltdowns, similar in scope to the meltdown at Fukushima, all at the same time?
Lessons Learned From Fukushima
Most aware Americans are cognizant of the fact that because of Fukushima, the fish of the earth are becoming inedible and the ocean currents as well as the prevailing ocean winds are carrying deadly radiation and the net effect is a lowering of life expectancy over the next generation. Additionally, the radioactivity has made its way into the transpiration cycle which means that crops are being dowsed with deadly radiation. The radiation has undoubtedly made its way into the water table in many areas and impacts every aspect of the food supply. One mere nuclear power plant meltdown has threatened the stability of the planet in so many ways. However, this article is not about the devastation of just one nuclear power plant failure at Fukushima, instead, this article focuses on the fact that the results from just ONE “successful false flag event, could launch North America into a doomsday scenario of having 124 Fukushima events occurring at the same time!
Do you know what the greatest threat posed to America with regard to an EMP attack would be? The facts behind the answer to this question will be addressed later in this article. Unfortunately, the immediate answer to this question is that America, and perhaps the entire planet, would be facing an EXTINCTION LEVEL EVENT.
Warnings From On High
Some top officials in government and in business have taken notice of the threat posed to America by an EMP attack. In January of 2013, and again in her August 2013 farewell address as the outgoing Director of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano made it clear that it was a matter of when, not if the grid was taken down by a “cyber 911″.
Joining the former DHS director in her concerns about an impending EMP attack is billionaire hedge fund manager Paul Singer who has issued a very dire warning for investors in which he calls the threat of a widespread blackout from an electromagnetic surge the “most significant danger” in the world.” Singer wrote to clients of his $ 24.8 billion Elliott Management on this past Monday in a standard investment update letter. “Even horrendous nuclear war, except in its most extreme form, can [be] a relatively localized issue, and the threat from asteroids can (possibly) be mitigated.”
Why isn’t something, along the lines of the Paul Singer proclamation of the need to do something to harden the grid against an EMP attack, being done right now? After all, Singer doesn’t pull any punches when he says that an EMP attack upon our grid would likely be worse than an asteroid strike upon the earth or all-out nuclear war. Are Paul Singer and Janet Napolitano simply lone voices in the wilderness whose dire warnings have no basis in fact? Or, is there is something much more dire going on?
American Regulators Are Aware of the Threat
American regulators have long known that a power failure lasting for days involving the power grid connected to a nuclear plant, regardless of the cause, would most likely lead to a dangerous radioactive leak in at least several nuclear power plants. A complete loss of electrical power poses a major problem for nuclear power plants because the reactor core must be kept cool as well as the back-up cooling systems, all of which require massive amounts of power to work. Heretofore, all the NERC drills which test the readiness of a nuclear power plant are predicated on the notion that a blackout will only last 24 hours or less. Amazingly, this is the sum total of a NERC litmus test. How long was power out to New Orleans following Katrina or to New Jersey due to Sandy? What are the odds that power blackout effects of an EMP attack would last under 24 hours?
Although we have the technology needed to harden and protect our grid from an EMP event, whether natural or man-made, we have failed to do so. The cost for protecting the entire grid is placed at about the cost for one B-1 Stealth Bomber. Yet, as a nation, we have done nothing. This is inexplicable and inexcusable and any aware American would be within their rights to question the motives of the people who are running NERC. In this case, the buck stops with President Obama as the executive head of this agency.
Our collective inaction against protecting the grid prompted Congressman Franks to write a scathing letter to the top officials of NERC. The Franks’ letter can be accessed at this link. However, the good Congressman failed to mention the most important aspect of this problem. The problem is entirely fixable and NERC and the U.S. government are leaving the American people and its infrastructure totally unprotected from a total meltdown of nuclear power plants as a result of a prolonged power failure.
The Unresolved Power Blackout Problem
According to Judy Haar, a recognized expert in nuclear plant failure analyses, when a nuclear power plant loses access to off-grid electricity, the event is referred to as a “station blackout”. Haar states that all of the US nuclear power plants are built to withstand electrical outages without experiencing any core damage, through the activation of an automatic start up of emergency generators powered by diesel. Further, when emergency power kicks in, an automatic shutdown of the nuclear power plant commences. The dangerous control rods are dropped into the core, while water is pumped by the diesel power generators into the reactor to reduce the heat and thus, prevent a meltdown. Here is the catch in this process, the spent fuel rods are encased in both a primary and secondary containment structure which is designed to withstand a core meltdown. However, should the pumps stop because either the generators fail or diesel fuel is not available, the fuel rods are subsequently uncovered and a Fukushima type of core meltdown commences immediately.
A long-term loss of outside electrical power will most certainly interrupt the circulation of cooling water to the pools. One of my Palo Verde nuclear power plant sources informed me that there is no long term solution to a power blackout and that all bets are off if the blackout is due to an EMP attack. A more detailed analysis reveals that the spent fuel pools carry depleted fuel for the reactor. Normally, this spent fuel has had time to considerably decay and therefore, reducing radioactivity and heat. However, the newer discharged fuel still produces heat and needs cooling. Housed in high density storage racks, contained in buildings that vent directly into the atmosphere, radiation containment is not accounted for with regard to the spent fuel racks. In other words, there is no capture mechanism.
In this scenario, accompanied by a lengthy electrical outage, and with the emergency power waning due to either generator failure or a lack of diesel needed to power the generators, the plant could lose the ability to provide cooling. The water will subsequently heat up, boil away and uncover the spent fuel rods which required being covered in at least 25 feet of water to remain benign from any deleterious effects. Ultimately, this would lead to fires as well and the release of radioactivity into the atmosphere. This would be the beginning of another Fukushima event right here on American soil. Both my insider Palo Verde Nuclear Power Plant source and Haar shared exactly the same scenario about how a meltdown would occur.
Subsequently, I have spoken with my friend and colleague, Roger Landry, who worked for Raytheon in various Department of Defense projects for 28 years, many of them in this arena and Roger also confirmed this information and that the above information is well known in the industry. When I examine Congressman Franks letter to NERC and I read between the lines, it is clear that Congressman Franks knows of this risk as well, he just stops short of specifically mentioning it in his letter.
The Questions That Are Not Being Asked
None of the NERC, or the Nuclear Regulatory tests of handling a prolonged blackout at a nuclear power plant have answered two critical questions, “What happens when these nuclear power plants run out of diesel fuel needed to run the generators”, and “What happens when some of these generators fail”? In the event of an EMP attack, can tanker trucks with diesel fuel get to all of the nuclear power plants in the US in time to re-fuel them before they stop running? Will tanker trucks even be running themselves in the aftermath of an EMP attack? And in the event of an EMP attack, it is not likely that any plant which runs low on fuel, or has a generator malfunction, will ever get any help to mitigate the crisis prior to a plethora of meltdowns occurring. Thus, every nuclear power plant in the country has the potential to cause a Chernobyl or Fukushima type accident if our country is hit by an EMP attack.
What if the reason for the blackout is an EMP burst caused by a high altitude nuclear blast and transportation comes to a standstill? In this instance, the cavalry is not coming. No replacements or repairs requiring spare parts technology will be implemented. Adding fuel to the fire lies in the fact that the power transformers presently take at least one year to replace. Today, there is a three year backlog on ordering because so many have been ordered by China. This makes one wonder what the Chinese are preparing for with these multiple orders for both transformers and generators. In short, our unpreparedness is a prescription for disaster. As a byproduct of my investigation, I have discovered that most, if not all, of the nuclear power plants are on known earthquake fault lines. All of California’s nuclear power plants are located on an earthquake fault line.
Can anyone tell me why would anyone in their right mind build a nuclear power plant on a fault line?
Can anyone tell me why any government official, in their right mind, would fail to harden our power grid against an EMP attack for a mere $ 2 billion dollars?
To see the depth of this threat the reader can visit an interactive, overlay map at this site which clearly demonstrates that nuclear power plants lie on earthquake fault lines.
For those who think the Georgia Guidestones are prophetic warnings of the depopulation intentions of the elite in which humanity is reduced to mere 500 million people from the current 7 billion, just gained a lot of traction for their “conspiratorial beliefs”.
In summary, I agree with Paul Singer in that this is the defining threat of our time and we are doing nothing about it except to live in a state of denial and governmental inaction.

(London Daily Mail) Solar ‘super-storms’ pose a ‘catastrophic’ and ‘long-lasting’ threat to life on Earth, a scientist has warned.
These huge storms are caused by violent eruptions on the surface of the sun and are accompanied by coronal mass ejections, or CMEs.
CMEs are the most energetic events in our solar system – involving huge bubbles of plasma and magnetic fields being spewed from the sun’s surface into space.
They are often preceded by a solar flare – a massive release of energy from the sun in the form of gamma rays, X-rays, protons and electrons.
A solar superstorm occurs when a CME of sufficient magnitude tears into the Earth’s surrounding magnetic field and rips it apart.
