Nest Gems – Jobs, Votes And Gender

As the exodus of well-rewarded jobs leave our shores or evaporate as downsizing efficiency marches onward, we are left with an inevitable conclusion. Life is getting harder, earning a livable income is more difficult and the prospects for the future are less upbeat. Covering all the reasons for this shift – away from a secure future – are continuous themes for pundits and reporters. The world is quite different from the fabulous fifties when a father could support a family without working overtime.

Nest Gems – Prince of Darkness is not the problem

AFF-Agent-Jones-SM

The rush to condemn Robert Novak illustrates the underlying agenda of the mainstream media. The “Prince of Darkness” is one of the very few national syndicated columnists that understands the nature of our Republic and has the guts to defend it. Shame on a society that turns on such a champion, who has the courage, to tell the truth, as it blabbers establishment nonsense and endless apologies for the crooks that permeate the praetorian guard. When the catcalls come – as reported by Howard Kurtz in the Washington Post – from the likes of the Nation’s writer David Corn called the leak a “thuggish act,” New York Times columnist Paul Krugman called it a “criminal act.” and the depraved Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) is mortified beyond description, you know that the diversion is underway.

Money Center Banks and Stricter Financial Oversight

JPMorgan (1)

Once again, the practices of the “Too Big to Fail” banksters bring the financial money machine to the brink. The J.P. Morgan derivative losses and trading gambles by their “London Whale” demonstrate business as usual in the murky world of risk distortion. Even the vexing progressive Robert Reich makes an accurate assessment for breaking up the big banks and the resurrecting of Glass-Steagall.

Nest Gems – Best Government – Governs Least

jeffersonleast

Once upon a time, the Founding Fathers were considered to be the personification of the American Republic. Most notable among giants was Thomas Jefferson. The significance of his authorship of the Declaration of Independence is heralded as the very essence of the purpose of fighting the revolution. Jump onward to the present era and examine the sentiment held by the populace. The seeming disconnect from the political thought of the 18th and 19th century to the attitudes in this 21st totalitarian collectivist mindset that dominates the culture often resembles life on a different planet.

Pervert Politicians Represent a Sick Society

harveywood

Once again the august and noble governmental careerists reveal their nature. Let no man or woman ever be disappointed. The aristocracy of public policy always has a way of reaching down and deep to pull off the pants of naked exposure. Nothing has changed in this pattern of conduct. Only the methods of fusing perversion with favors vary with the excess of the billionaire moguls who fashion the popular culture. Washington DC has an insatiable appetite for projecting power dominance that may only be exceeded for the lust of campaign donations. The perfect storm of celebrity debauchery streams directly into the corridors of legislation and agency administration. Such behavior is well known, even though most practices are ignored as a matter of course.

Nest Gems – Condemn Islamic Terror and Shield Zionist Atrocities

double_standards_eng

Surviving in a world of offensive double standards comes easy for people who lost their moral compass. Most culturally deficient pawns have such limited intellectual capacities and ethical fortitude to apply the same critical standards to zealots, who practice and defend barbarism no matter where it is committed. The narration that masquerades as objective news reporting out of the mass media, acts as a gatekeeper to provide political cover for Zionist protection. If the eternal struggle between Muslims and Jews was the supreme existential conflict, why would Christians take sides, when the purported feud between cousins, drips blood no matter whose hand holds the sword?

Déjà vu – Article V Constitutional Amendment Options

articleV (1)

With all the controversy coming from the Mark Levin argument that Liberty Amendments could be enacted by using Article V, which allows for individual States to use a convention for proposing amendments, to the U.S. Constitution, it is worth an examination. A good primer is offered by the Tea Party Patriots in a webinar symposium, in a four- part-session. The first was held online, 1/7/14 was attended to this report. The next three are scheduled for 1/14/14. 1/21/14 and 1/28/14. Those who view this approach as a viable option might want to engage in the Tea Party Community discussion.

Nest Gems – NYS Public Service Commission in the Pocket of Corporatists

ptc

The corporatist culture of lobbyist Jack Abramoff is alive not only on K Street but in the offices of the New York State Public Service Commission. The long-awaited report on the rules for electric generation siting demonstrates that the industrial wind lobby is on speed dial to the agency tasked to regulate their power facilities. In the new gilded age of robber barons, the “public servants” at the PSC earn their stripes as capitalist tool lackeys. Damn the public interest, the expedited approval of projects is guaranteed. Money influence trumps sound science, property rights, municipal home rule and health & safety.

Nest Gems – Lament for a Society of Shame

The celebration of Thanksgiving has lost its purpose over the centuries. Consider the meaning of George Washington’s 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation:

How far we have strayed from our original purpose as a People. Ponder the tradition and deplore the reality of today. Commemorate the expectation and challenge the actuality. We can do better as a country by restoring our purpose as a nation.

Thankful For More Than You Know

hillarylook

Thanksgiving is the one holiday celebration that expresses our own personality. Legal holidays that commemorate national anniversaries and religious observances have their origin in institutions, civic and religious design. While the ritual of ‘Turkey Day’ is rooted in the feast of the Pilgrims. Each of us views the intention of giving thanks from our unique perspective. Football may reign supreme on the tube, and cranberry may dress up the plate, but the real purpose of this day, represents our humble gratefulness for all that we have been blessed to receive.
