As you may have been reading in my latest posts, I've been seriously researching the subject of "Sustainable Development" as it reveals a government imposed creed, steeped in false ideology not approved by voters, and in doing so I've come upon the method of "governance" of the left. (Worse from the left, but in fairness, this method is also being employed by the right to some degrees.) By doing this research over the past few months and years, I have come to the conclusion that our government has been completely hijacked. To that you might be saying, "Duh." You noticed that, too?

The point though is, that while we have seen the consequences emerging into our lives, no one seems to realize how this happened and from whence it is coming. I'm not about to blame Saul Alinsky, or Cloward and Piven, though they deftly outlined the methods. I'm about to blame those elected officials who are so stupid as to comply with unelected organizations...for the sake of what? Money, power, awards, junkets, etc. Elected officials are doing things antithetical to their oaths of office and to their responsibilities to the voters. Why and how? (And yes, I blame the voters, too, for allowing this and electing all the wrong people to office.)

I just had the weird experience of viewing the movie, "Idiocracy." Just getting around to it. And as crass as it is, I have to say it hit a home run in describing the devolution of our blessed republic, albeit in a cartoonish sort of way. No, I didn't like the movie. But I got it. And it was smack on point, sad to say.

Representative government is supposed to represent the voters. While a republic is not a democracy, and should not be, the expectation is that the interest of the voters would be represented by their elected officials operating within the parameters of the Constitution. As the dumbing down of America has succeeded beyond Marx's wildest dreams over the last decades, we now have a government made up of dolts and idiots who have no concept of the consequences of their actions beyond their own selftish motives, and who don't care about parameters or our Constitutional guarantees. Is it any wonder that the public has lost confidence in government?

So where do I see evidence of this corrupt and unintelligent government? Oh, don't even ask that one. All over the place, is the answer.

Here is one "for instance:" American Thinker on Soros Behind the Libya Attacks "
There is one influential group that has been in the forefront of efforts to promote the idea that the international community is obligated to take measures (including military ones) to protect civilians. That group is the Global Center for the Responsibility to Protect. Lo and behold! George Soros's Open Society Institute is one of the two foundations that bankroll this advocacy group (the other, the John D. and Catherine MacArthur Foundation - a group that has, over the years, become known not just for its Genius Awards but also for its funding of left-leaning groups. It is headed by a former State Department official and we know how many of those diplomats think)."

What do you take from that? You can't ignore that our President has attacked Libya on a premise the George Soros foundation created, a foundation of unelected international socialist zealots. Obama's decision had nothing to do with America, but rather is using America for a goal outside of Americans' better interests. Just like Clinton implemented Sustainable Development on the basis of international environmental zealots out of the UN, Obama implements foreign policy and military actions on the basis of Soros, the UN, and global socialists. We are electing persons who then commence to govern with policies from unelected boards and commissions that we, as voters, don't want.

Starting at the top, we have a President who cares not one whit for our own Constitution, but would put our military on the line for his buddy Soros, the UN, and the international community? Every action this President has taken has been without respect to our own laws and Constitution. No surprise to me because I paid attention to who he was before his election. But evidently, our idiocracy did not. So now we are stuck with consequences destroying our country.

Maybe it all has started at the top. Top down idiocracy. I know the Sustainable Development insanity came from the top down, through Bill Clinton. He just went around our legislative process and implemented his damage anyway. This is now a method on steroids with Obama. Just as Bill Clinton put Jimmy Carter's CRA on steroids, Obama is putting Clinton's policies on steroids, only worse.

Our country is supposed to be "bottom up." Our citizens are supposed to be smart enough to rule themselves. Yet, mayors, governors, legislators, and presidents, for the past twenty years, have all ignored the common sense of the people in order to govern outside of our laws. We have, for all intents and purposes, a government that functions outside the law and without any concern for our American interests. We have a quasi government, doing business without our consent.

If you could see the list of associated non-profits and NGO's operating through just the United States Conference of Mayors, you would see that your mayor is not answerable to you, but is answering to the unelected boards and commissions attached thereto. (at that link, go to legislation and programs. The drop down menu gives you "standing committees." Under those headings you will see who your mayor is using for regulations and ruling your city. Hint: you aren't counted.)

What have I learned along the way? I've learned that from the mayor of your city, all the way up to the President of the United States, our government is no longer an elected republican form of government. It is a false front for unelected players now ruling America.

American Spectator report on Angelo Codevilla's Ruling Class
The Agenda: Power

"Our ruling class's agenda is power for itself. While it stakes its claim through intellectual-moral pretense, it holds power by one of the oldest and most prosaic of means: patronage and promises thereof. Like left-wing parties always and everywhere, it is a "machine," that is, based on providing tangible rewards to its members. Such parties often provide rank-and-file activists with modest livelihoods and enhance mightily the upper levels' wealth. Because this is so, whatever else such parties might accomplish, they must feed the machine by transferring money or jobs or privileges -- civic as well as economic -- to the party's clients, directly or indirectly. This, incidentally, is close to Aristotle's view of democracy. Hence our ruling class's standard approach to any and all matters, its solution to any and all problems, is to increase the power of the government -- meaning of those who run it, meaning themselves, to profit those who pay with political support for privileged jobs, contracts, etc. Hence more power for the ruling class has been our ruling class's solution not just for economic downturns and social ills but also for hurricanes and tornadoes, global cooling and global warming. A priori, one might wonder whether enriching and empowering individuals of a certain kind can make Americans kinder and gentler, much less control the weather. But there can be no doubt that such power and money makes Americans ever more dependent on those who wield it."

Ten questions with Angelo Codevilla on the Ruling Class

This post may be just a reminder to some, or a regurgitation of same same to others. Maybe it's just a lament from my broken heart over America. But at the least, I hope it shows you that this is not just about the federal government, but it is about us, individually and locally. And what are we going to do about the problem?

Just a few suggestions: Stop taking grants and subsidies. Stop allowing your local government to align itself with unelected organizations. Stop your city council and county commissioners from implementing policies without your permission or referendum. Ask questions about where the policies are originating. Find out who is behind the latest regulation, the latest tax, the latest fees, the latest edicts. That is just a start.

With love from me to you...


  1. First, I hope this post means you are fully recovered.

    I like your term "unelected governance". It's perfect. Those two words exlpain a lot about what has happened to our country. Whether they be NGOs or cronies like Soros or unelected bureaucrats or politicians ramming laws down our throats that they know we don't approve of. Unless the conservatives can completely highjack the Republican Party and make a clean sweep of the Presidency and both Houses of Congress in 2012, I fear our country is lost. We need a miracle.

  2. Hi Jim!!
    Yes, sort of. I am feeling much better the past two days, yet still tired, but I think I am gradually coming back. Thanks!

    I'm missing your other site...I liked it a lot. Where are you now?? Literally and cyberwise? When I click on your link it is a different site.

    The past few days I've been drawn back into the local issues and contacting people regarding an insidious plan called "Gastonia 2020, A Plan For Our Future." Jim...if you have not heard of this...every town, city, and county in the country has been handed a 2020 plan to adopt. All of these plans have been drawn up by the central planners coming out of the United Nations, the EPA, the President's Council on Sustainable Development. Of course the strings are attached...i.e. if you, sheeple, adopt the PLAN, then you can have access to state and federal grant money. If you don' just might be s.o.l...if you catch my drift. So now it's a matter of convincing our local city council to throw this damn plan in the trash and get off their butts and figure out their own plans...without all that tempting grant and subsidy money. Probably never happen. Fun, eh? I just ordered a bunch of pamphlets from Freedom Advocates to give to the council and commissioners.

    You, sir, are exactly correct on what needs to happen. The Tea Party has to get the Republican Party back from the clutches of the progressive isn't just the Dems. AND you are will take a miracle.
    Thanks, Jim Good to hear from you.

  3. Sorry to hear you're still not 100% yet. Are keeping to your doctor's orders? ¡Mas vale!

    I changed the theme of my blog for two reasons. First, I wanted a magazine type format so that visitors could see from the home page a number of different articles. My statistics have definitely improved. Second, I found that black background hard on my eyes (or eye, since I only have one) and several readers agreed that thhe new theme is better. Sorry that you don't agree. But, hey, it's stil old Jim trying to make a few waves.

    The smelly stuff is getting piled hagher and deeper, Cheryl. Your most recent post on "What good are Presidents" is an excellent explication as to why. A lot of conservatives and libertarians are saying maybe it all has to come crashing down before people will wake-up and then we can rebuild our constitutional Republic. The trouble is the liberals believe the same thing, only that it will be they who rebuild a new American Socialist State. Got to tell you, kiddo, I'm worried.

    Take care of yourself and come around and visit the new site. You'll get use to it.


  4. Dear Jim,
    Yes, I am following orders carefully. It has only been 10 days from major surgery, so being tired is to be expected I guess. I've been told to lay low for 6 maybe I push it a little too much.

    And, Yes...I will get used to your site. I did not mean to sound critical at all. Your format is fine and I like it. I'm glad to hear your readership is UP! I was just there, but could not find a way to comment. I love the Atlas Shrugged piece...mostly I LOVE that book and cannot wait for the movie! My only lament is that it is 20 years too late to influence the lost generations.

    As for high and aren't kidding. The system has been rigged now. That is what is so troubling. You see these demonstrations going on all over the place and that tells me the situation has been orchestrated very carefully to implode...globally, I mean. They could not get their hands on power without causing the system to fail that Alinsky? Overwhelm the system? So....hang on to your hat. I'm worried, too.

    Stick together...I'll keep up with you, too!
