Terrorist Attack Cover-Up?


Assault on California Power Station
Raises Alarm on Potential for Terrorism

Administration unable so far to pin attack on Tea Party;
Kept silent for 10 mos.


The April 16, 2013, attack had not been widely publicized until The Wall Street Journal reported new details in a story on Wednesday.

The attack reportedly started when at least one person entered an underground vault to cut telephone cables, and attackers fired more than 100 shots into Pacific Gas & Electric’s Metcalf transmission substation, knocking out 17 transformers. Electric officials were able to avert a blackout, but it took 27 days to repair the damage. [Full]

Not widely publicized?  This is the first I've heard if it. 

Why am I thinking about TWA 800?  Which occured (
July 17, 1996) during Slick's reelection campaign?


Police State Culture


 IRS smoking gun uncovered by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp

Feb. 6, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement calling attention to documents uncovered by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Dave Camp proving that the proposed IRS regulations against 501(c)(4)s were planned while the targeting of the tea party was ongoing, and not in response to that scandal in 2013 as the Obama administration has contended:

"President Obama can no longer hide behind his seemingly perpetual state of confusion over what is happening in his administration, as records now clearly show. The 2012 email released by Chairman Camp proves that the new IRS regulation restricting 501(c)(4) organizations' political speech was not in response to the scandal targeting the tea party or any confusion about what (c)(4) regulations mean, but was devised well in advance.

"The IRS had a long-term plan to use its power to intimidate and stop small conservative groups from participating in the political process using the same tax-exempt status as groups like Sierra Club and the League of Conservation Voters that publish voter guides.

"Congress can no longer stand idly assuming good will from this administration and it must use its power of the purse including any extension of the debt ceiling to expressly prohibit the implementation of these new IRS rules designed to squelch First Amendment rights of Obama's political opponents."

To view online:

Wow, we finally have them cornered.  I guess articles of impeachment will be voted on PDQ now. 

This Just In - WE ARE KULAKS

Still think "It can't happen here"?

'We are now seeing the Obama regime, growing bolder every day, begin to more aggressively demonize "the rich" (which they currently define as anyone making over $125k, as opposed to the wealthy Hollywood-types and others who support the regime and are never demonized).

 Is this so different from the way the Soviets demonized the kulaks? The word means "tight-fisted", and was loosely defined as any farmer who had more land or more cows than his neighbors. Such farmers were "enemies of the state" because they resisted the agenda of collectivization.

... the Cossacks as such were exterminated, the men shot, the women, children, and the elderly deported, and the villages razed or handed over to new, non-Cossack occupants.

 I'm sure that one of Obama's heroes, Robert Mugabe, had this definition in mind in his "redistribution" plan for Zimbabwe, in which the former Rhodesia, once "the breadbasket of Africa", was transformed into a basket-case. (See my AT piece, "Why Not  Zimbabwe?",

But for our current Marxist/Leninist (and every day more Stalinist) regime, the definition of kulak can expand from its agricultural origin to encompass anyone who has more than his neighbor; anyone who presents too glaring an example of "income inequality". What would merely be "upper middle class" now becomes "rich", and is vilified.

As you read the material below, substitute "the rich" (as referred to by Obama & Co.) for "kulaks". And see what the future may hold if our Communist regime follows the strategy and tactics of so many other Communist regimes.

Here are some excerpts from the following: (The Black Book of Communism)

I have re-paragraphed it to make it easier to read. And I've added emphasis in red.

'Still think "It can't happen here"? 

 Andre Frossard […] believes that “it is a crime against humanity when someone is put to death purely by virtue of his or her birth.” And in his short but magnificent novel Forever Flowing, Vasily Grossman says of his hero, Ivan Grigorevich, who has returned from the camps, “he had remained exactly what he had been from his birth: a human being.” 

 That, of course, was precisely why he was singled out in the first place. The French definition helps remind us that genocide comes in many shapes and sizes – it can be racial (as in the case of the Jews), but it can also target social groups. 

 In The Red Terror in Russia, published in Berlin in 1924, the Russian historian and socialist Sergei Melgunov cited Martin Latsis, one of the first leaders of the Cheka (the Soviet political police), as giving the following order on 1 November 1918 to his henchmen: 

 “We don’t make war against any people in particular. We are exterminating the bourgeoisie as a class. In your investigations don’t look for documents and pieces of evidence about what the defendant has done, whether in deed or in speaking or acting against Soviet authority. The first question you should ask him is what class he comes from, what are his roots, his education, his training, and his occupation.”

 Lenin and his comrades initially found themselves embroiled in a merciless “class war,” in which political and ideological adversaries, as well as the more recalcitrant members of the general public, were branded as enemies and marked for destruction. The Bolsheviks had decided to eliminate, by legal and physical means, any challenge or resistance, even if passive, to their absolute power.

 This strategy applied not only to groups with opposing political views, but also to such social groups as the nobility, the middle class, the intelligentsia, and the clergy, as well as professional groups such as military officers and the police. Sometimes the Bolsheviks subjected these people to genocide. The policy of “de-Cossackization” begun in 1920 corresponds largely to our definition of genocide: a population group firmly established in a particular territory, the Cossacks as such were exterminated, the men shot, the women, children, and the elderly deported, and the villages razed or handed over to new, non-Cossack occupants.

  Lenin compared the Cossacks to the Vendee during the French Revolution and gladly subjected them to a program of what Gracchus Babeuf, the “inventor” of modern Communism, characterized in 1795 as “populicide.”

 The “dekulakization” of 1930-1932 repeated the policy of “de-Cossackization” but on a much grander scale. Its primary objective, in accordance with the official order issued for this operation (and the regime’s propaganda), was “to exterminate the kulaks as a class.” 

 The kulaks who resisted collectivization were shot, and the others were deported with their wives, children, and elderly family members. Although not all kulaks were exterminated directly, sentences of forced labor in wilderness areas of Siberia or the far north left them with scant chance of survival. Several tens of thousands perished there; the exact number of victims remains unknown. As for the great famine in Ukraine in 1932-33, which resulted from the rural population’s resistance to forced collectivization, 6 million died in a period of several months.

 Here, the genocide of a “class” may well be tantamount to the genocide of a “race” – the deliberate starvation of a child of a Ukrainian kulak as a result of the famine caused by Stalin’s regime “is equal to” the starvation of a Jewish child in the Warsaw ghetto as a result of the famine caused by the Nazi regime. 

 Such arguments in no way detract from the unique nature of Auschwitz – the mobilization of leading-edge technological resources and their use in an “industrial process” involving the construction of an “extermination factory,” the use of gas, and cremation. However, this argument highlights one particular feature of many Communist regimes – their systematic use of famine as a weapon. The regime aimed to control the total available food supply and, with immense ingenuity, to distribute food purely on the basis of “merits” and “demerits” earned by individuals. 

 This policy was a recipe for creating famine on a massive scale. Remember that in the period after 1918, only Communist countries experienced such famines, which led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands, and in some cases millions, of people. And again in the 1980s, two African countries that claimed to be Marxist-Leninist, Ethiopia and Mozambique, were the only such countries to suffer these deadly famines.
