Stop the Racism

Stop the Racism

In M-J on September 16, 2009 at 5:35 am

Nuts to You, Jimmy!
Jimmy Carter's NUTS!
People accuse others of being “racists” just because they disagree with the faulty logic or unreasonable programs put forth by someone “of color” (hey–we’re all “people of color”, actually).
Some on the left label black conservatives, and all those appointed by Republican presidents, “Uncle Toms”. That is a disgusting attempt to say that they aren’t acting “black”–when actually, conservatives and Republicans believe in freedom combined with responsibility, a noble philosophy. They portrayed Condoleezza Rice as Aunt Jemima in a vicious cartoon, and tried to destroy Judge Clarence Thomas. Meanwhile, Democrats seem to want Americans to be enslaved to the government. Petty, left-leaning partisans stoop to these reprehensible, racist tactics because they are bereft of good ideas, and wish to divert attention from their lust for power. Former president Jimmy Carter is a bitter partisan with a lot of baggage, and some inherent racism of his own, which he projected onto others just to get attention. There are plenty of black politicians and intellectuals in the United States who disagree with the current president, who happens to be part-black and half-white. I don’t hear them being called “racists”–because they are not. They simply disagree with an ideology that threatens America’s foundation. No, people don’t dislike President Obama because he is part black–there are many other reasons, all of which involve the reckless expenditure of trillions that haven’t created jobs, and the threat to spend more on destructive programs.
Moderate Americans and conservatives alike focus solely on the ideology of others, not their “race” or color. We take Dr. Martin Luther King’s philosophy seriously, and judge people by the content of their character.
It is the height of rudeness to call someone a racist without ample evidence–it is stupid and simplistic; the only response that those devoid of ideas can summon into their vapid minds. What a shame that Americans are not allowed to philosophically disagree with those who are devoted to trashing the Constitution of the United States, without being mindlessly labelled “racists” by the undereducated and addled group of extreme partisans.
Small-minded political hacks rely on the useful label, “racist”, when they are unable to support their argument. It is an outmoded, hackneyed ploy to change the debate and remove focus from vitally important issues. This blatant race-baiting and outright racism must stop.

Save Our Corn: M-J’s September 2009 Update

September 10, 2009 at 7:08 am




To produce one gallon of ethanol, fifty gallons of water must be used. How exactly is this “helping the planet”, especially since auto-emissions from ethanol are equal to those of regular gasoline (petrol)? And the ethanol craze has caused the price of corn (maize) to go sky-high. Derivatives of corn permeate the food-supply, thus its high price trickles over to innumerable food products. Corn is the food staple of poor nations in the western hemisphere. The Obama plan of eschewing gas and oil in favor of ethanol has devastating consequences for nations dependent on corn, not to mention those addicted to Cheetos!~~M-J, January 2009

Do Environmentalists Hate Poor People?

Corn (maize), traditionally a popular foodstuff in the Americas, is now used to produce a motor fuel called ethanol. Ethanol is created by converting corn’s starches into a combustible liquid that can be mixed with gasoline, or burned straight, if the vehicle in question has had the modifications needed to do so.The environmentalists’ propaganda claims that ethanol is good for the earth because it will reduce American dependence on foreign oil. However, there are mixed data about perceived energy gains, and evidence of detrimental environmental impact from the use of ethanol. In 2006, University of Minnesota researchers found that ethanol returns only 25 percent more energy than it takes to produce it. Detractors emphasise that the study did not calculate all the variables that go into the ethanol-making process–to wit, the power it takes to run irrigation equipment used to water the corn crops, the power consumed in making the necessary fertilizers, the cost of farm equipment used to harvest it, and of the fuel required to power those machines.

Scientific studies have found that burning ethanol will produce smog–namely, ozone pollution.
Everyone wants to get into the ethanol act: automakers, who want their colossal S.U.V.s and trucks to seem like they consume less fuel (they don’t), and the oil industry (it sells oil to producers of ethanol).

Ethanol production in the United States rose from 1.6 billion gallons in 2000 to 5 billion gallons in 2006. This new endeavour is diverting at least 20 percent of the U.S. corn crop away from the food industry. Thus, a tortilla crisis burgeons in Mexico, where masa and corn-flour prices have gone up at least 25 percent in price, in a country with a large population of very poor citizens.

The “tortilla tax” presents an ironic dilemma: how is it more socially and environmentally responsible to starve the poor to run one’s S.U.V?

Soybean prices are expected to hit their second-highest ever, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reports, thanks to the diversion of soybean oil to use as an alternative, “bio-diesel” fuel. The amount of soybeans used for processing biofuel rather than for food has jumped from 2 percent to 12 percent, and is expected to go much higher.

So far, Americans have not seemed to notice what is happening to the price of soybean and corn-based comestibles. Just wait till they see the price of beer bubbling up because of the agricultural focus on corn and soybeans, which results in farming fewer barley and hops.

The environmentalism cult has already ruined the abundant farming tradition in California’s Central Valley, because of their deference to a minnow that no one had previously heard of–they are “protecting” the miniature, non-food fish while forcing farms to go fallow. These false philanthropists pressured and threatened California leaders to prohibit use of river-water for crops. They don’t want America’s farms to be fertile enough to produce food, but still believe that their “cause” makes them morally superior. Well, how benevolent are they, really, when they cause people to starve because of the lack of produce from western America’s best farming region, not to mention making hundreds of farming families go out of business? How is that good for either people or the economy? A large portion of the enviro-cult is composed of trust-fund babies who couldn’t care less about the realities of average people’s lives; they are a new class of oppressors, just like the ones they claim to abhor. They need to look in the mirror and analyse just how devoid of brotherly love they are, when they sacrifice their fellow human-beings for the sake of “Gaia”. The prices of food will be astronomical as a result of their thug-like behaviour, as I have been saying for many months since learning of the California travesty. Coupled with the new focus on “bio-fuels’, which are a waste of water, oil and other types of energy, the misanthropic environmental cult is going to be controlling your food costs to a degree that even a superpower cannot support. This wouldn’t have happened if certain American leaders hadn’t given into the demands of environmental thugs. Will the U.S. continue to shoot itself in the foot until they are dependent on foreign oil and foreign food as well? Caving in to domestic terrorists will turn freedom’s paradise into a deprived, depraved Hell.

What You Should Know about Communism and Why

Professor, Statesman, and Author Dr. Matthew Meštrović
by Dr. Matthew Meštrović, was required reading in American schools in the 1960s. I was given a paperback copy of it in fourth grade.

Dr. Matthew Meštrović, son of the Croatian sculptor Ivan Meštrović, is an American author, journalist and professor of Modern European history. He was educated in Italy, Switzerland and the United States; he received his Ph.D. from Columbia University.

Dr. Meštrović has taught at New York University and Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey. He worked as a Contributing Editor of TIME Magazine, and wrote many articles for American and European newspapers and periodicals, including “The Commonweal”, “The New Leader”, the North American Alliance news syndicate, “The Intelligence Report” of the London Economist.

In 1986, Dr. Matthew Meštrović was awarded the prestigious Ellis Island Medal of Honor, together with President Gerald Ford, Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Dr. Henry Kissinger, publisher Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, and Mrs. Clinton.

Dr. Meštrović served as a U.S. Army lieutenant during the War in the Pacific, and is a Korean War veteran.Matthew Meštrović is the author of several books in English and Croatian, notably “ What You Should Know about Communism and Why,” “The struggle for Croatia” and “In the Whirlpool of Croatian Politics." He published, in the U.S., Dr. Franjo Tudjman’s book “Nationalism in Contemporary Europe” and Venko Markovski’s “Goli Otok – The Island of Death.” He authored several political tracts, notably “Violations of Human and National Rights of the Croatian People in Yugoslavia,” and “Croatian Response to the Memorandum of the Serbian Academy of Science and Art."

From 1982 to 1991 he was president of the Croatian National Congress, a world-wide organization with chapters in several of countries, whose purpose is to champion the right of the Croatian people to sovereignty and democracy. He lobbied on behalf of Croatian self-determination in Washington, D.C., western Europe and Australia. In this capacity, Dr. Meštrović was received by Germany’s President Dr. Richard von Weizsäcker, the U.S. State Department, Quai d’Orsay, European Parliament, the British Foreign Office, and several other entities around the world.

Dr. Meštrović was a deputy in the Croatian Parliament (1993-1997), a member of Croatia’s delegation to the Council of Europe and the Interparliamentary Union and ambassador in Bulgaria (1997-2000). He is also the recipient of numerous Croatian and Bulgarian decorations.

Because of his father's and his own anti-communist beliefs, combined with a staunch commitment to freedom, Dr. Meštrović was declared by the Yugoslav regime "Enemy Number One of the Yugoslav State", and labelled as a "top CIA agent".

Matthew Meštrović's father, Ivan Meštrović, was the first person to be given a one-man show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Dr. Meštrović often lectures about his father's vast body of work.

Dr. Matthew Meštrović is a great American.
