“Let’s not burn America down. Let’s take her like she is and rebuild her. We must maintain and advocate and promote the philosophy of non-violence…we must live together as brothers or perish together as fools.” Martin Luther King
MLK understood political liberation emanating from truthfulness and spiritual liberation, all of which would be lost in an “I am King” world.
It is the truth of the mystery of salvation at work today in order to lead redeemed humanity towards the perfection of the kingdom which gives true meaning to movements of liberation in the economic, political, and social spheres, and which keeps them from falling into new forms of slavery. Instruction on Christian Freedom and Liberation, 1986
“Political language…is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give the appearance of solidity to pure wind.” Orwell
Obama’s SOTU was the equivalent of a Jello Shot (Kool-Aid and vodka). “Our reach has no limits.” Nikki Haley’s response was a Jello Shot with moonshine: “Turn down the volume.”

Abortion on Demand (“no apology”) zealots, seeking to mobilize like minded men haters (“stop patriarchy”), in NYC today, ahead of the 43rd Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, January 22, 2016.

“There is a chance that one of these days we will achieve contrived personalities that are superior in popular appeal to genuine ones.” John Kenneth Galbraith, The Liberal Hour, 1960
President Obama says he gets mad whenever he thinks about the 20 first graders killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre. What about the countless first graders killed in the massacres enabled by the billions of dollars of U.S. weapons provided to Saudi Arabia, Israel, and rebel forces seeking to topple legitimate governments?
The story of progress in America has included abundant infantilism and regression — which should have assured the long term prospects for a company like Toys “R” Us (now closed in Times Square), but for the infantilism and regression of the (Superman) landlords.
Now Available: Remembering Marvin Hamlisch: “The People’s Composer” a photography book celebrating the life and work of Marvin Hamlisch (1944-2012), an iconic American composer and conductor — created by Terre Blair Hamlisch and photographer Len Prince (photo, left and center, Todd Ellison, right)).

Last week we saw a woman playing a leading role in a terrorist attack on American soil, followed by the president of the United States saying that women would be serving in all combat units of the U.S. military.
Nihilist feminists believe that women-in-charge will produce better outcomes for society. And yet there is growing data (body counts) to support the view that women acting inorganically actually undermine society — and themselves.

Black activists are asserting that Woodrow Wilson, the twenty-eighth president of the United States, was a racist and therefore his name should be removed from Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
If in a democracy the political leaders are accountable to the people then the American people should have seen to it that Wilson and his Zionist backers were jailed for taking the U.S. into World War I—a war, that could have ended in 1916 but for U.S. involvement, that is seen by honest historians as the root cause of the Depression, Hitler, WWII, the Holocaust, and today’s chaos in the Middle East.
Commenting on Wilson’s role in the Great War’s aftermath, Felix Frankfurter wrote in Felix Frankfurter Reminisces (1960) that various people had pointed out to Wilson “how harsh and severe were the consequences to the German people of some of the terms (of the Versailles Treaty), particularly economic, Wilson said, ‘We mean them to be harsh because we want to etch forever on the minds of the German people that the people are responsible for the conduct of its rulers.'”
