What Will The End Of The United States Look Like ?

As we stand at the edge of complete economic, political, and social disaster as a nation, I can't help but wonder what the end of the United States will look like. Will it look like Weimar Germany, with its hyperinflation and street battles between socialists (Yes, the Nazis were socialists) and communists ? Will it look like Greece, a bankrupted social democracy with absolutely no chance of ever righting the ship ? Will it look like the mindless mass murders that were the hallmarks of the French and Russian Revoulutions ?

An argument can be made for each of the examples I've listed above. With the Federal Reserve printing money like there's no tomorrow, the hyperinflation and resulting chaos of the Weimar Republic is certainly possible. With 100 trillion dollars in unpaid liabilities due to entitlements, the United States certainly has a chance to become Greece. With the constant attacks on Christianity  and Judaism by the Anti-God Left, a French Revolution of sorts on American soil is certainly possible, and as Occupy Wall Street showed in its own incompetent way, a violent Russian Revolution of sorts on American soil may be in our not-so-distant future.

Or could we become post-apartheid South Africa, a relatively wealthy and modern country heading to utter collapse due to racial violence, an out of control leftist government, and a non-existent immigration policy ?

Before we get started, let me make something crystal clear. The fall of apartheid in South Africa was one of mankind's better moments. Apartheid was an inhuman, vile system. As Ayn Rand pointed out in the Virtue of Selfishness:


"Racism is the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism. It is the notion of ascribing moral, social or political significance to a man’s genetic lineage—the notion that a man’s intellectual and characterological traits are produced and transmitted by his internal body chemistry. Which means, in practice, that a man is to be judged, not by his own character and actions, but by the characters and actions of a collective of ancestors.

Racism claims that the content of a man’s mind (not his cognitive apparatus, but its content) is inherited; that a man’s convictions, values and character are determined before he is born, by physical factors beyond his control. This is the caveman’s version of the doctrine of innate ideas—or of inherited knowledge—which has been thoroughly refuted by philosophy and science. Racism is a doctrine of, by and for brutes. It is a barnyard or stock-farm version of collectivism, appropriate to a mentality that differentiates between various breeds of animals, but not between animals and men.

Like every form of determinism, racism invalidates the specific attribute which distinguishes man from all other living species: his rational faculty. Racism negates two aspects of man’s life: reason and choice, or mind and morality, replacing them with chemical predestination."


Apartheid wasn't a creation of the Right. Like every other social illness of the 19th and 20th centuries, apartheid was a creation of the Left, much like segregation in the South.

As economist Thomas Hazlett wrote:


"The now-defunct apartheid system of South Africa presented a fascinating instance of interest-group competition for political advantage. In light of the extreme human rights abuses stemming from apartheid, it is remarkable that so little attention has been paid to the economic foundations of that torturous social structure. The conventional view is that apartheid was devised by affluent whites to suppress poor blacks. In fact, the system sprang from class warfare and was largely the creation of white workers struggling against both the black majority and white capitalists. Apartheid was born in the political victory of radical white trade unions over both of their rivals. In short, this cruelly oppressive economic system was socialism with a racist face."


Apartheid was basically begun as a system to protect white union miners from competition from black non-union miners in the early 1900's. (In other words, they have the same racist origin that American unions do.) The National Party government that made apartheid the law of the land in South Africa was a socialist/fascist dictatorship. (One of the battle cries of the apartheid regime was "Workers of the world unite, fight for a white South Africa!")

After the election of Nelson Mandela (a murdering terrorist, despite the accolades heaped on him by the arrogant and lazy mainstream media) in 1994, South Africa began to crumble. Mandela's party, the African National Congress (ANC), wasn't at all interested in building the "Rainbow Nation" that he so waxed so eloquently about. It was a Marxist party hell bent on retribution and the redistribution of wealth. (As an aside note, the National Party ended up merging with the ANC. Collectivists of a feather always flock together.)

A new South African Constitution was written by the ANC which institutionalized the redistribution of wealth. Instead of being a charter of negative liberties like the US Constitution, the South African Constitution was intended to be a license for the South African government to do whatever it wanted for the "common good" of the people. For example, from the South African Constitution:


"A person or community whose tenure of land is legally insecure as a result of past racially discriminatory laws or practices is entitled, to the extent provided by an Act of Parliament, either to tenure which is legally secure or to comparable redress.

A person or community dispossessed of property after 19 June 1913 as a result of past racially discriminatory laws or practices is entitled, to the extent provided by an Act of Parliament, either to restitution of that property or to equitable redress.

No provision of this section may impede the state from taking legislative and other measures to achieve land, water and related reform, in order to redress the results of past racial discrimination, provided that any departure from the provisions of this section is in accordance with the provisions of section 36(1)."


In other words, property rights and indiviual sovereignty in South Africa no longer exist. For example, an Afrikaner farmer could lose his farm because of the actions of a long-dead distant relative. This is a complete and total breakdown of the civil society, since it punishes individuals for for the actions of others.

The South African Constitution also guarantees that all citizens have the right to housing, food, water, public assistance, a healthy environment, and secondary education, much like the old Soviet Constitution. Also like the old Soviet Constitution, it didn't produce a utopia, it produced a dystopia.  No government is capable of such largesse, it simply isn't humanly possible, even for a relatively wealthy nation like South Africa. Anger and hatred became (particularly against the white Afrikaner minority) became the norm. Roving gangs of black youths, egged on by ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema, began terrorizing Afrikaner farmers. The reasoning behind it was this: If the government can't give it to us fast enough, we'll simply take it because we have a right to it. (Since 1994, over 3000 Afrikaner farmers have been murdered. The vast majority of these crimes aren't investigated by police and are chalked up to common criminals.)

Poverty grew quickly in the post apatheid years. Shanty towns around major cities grew at an alarming rate. Crime quickly became uncontrollable. (The city of Johannesberg, once a major center of culture in the world, quickly became the world's most crime ridden city.) Unemployment became rampant. The immigration system broke down as refugees from Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, and Zimbabwe flooded over South Africa's borders, adding not only more crime and additional burden to the welfare state, but more racial tensions.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is where America is heading. Like South Africa, we have a government that is more interested in the redistribution of wealth than anything else. The attacks on ranchers in southern Arizona by rampaging illegal aliens from Mexico may not have had tragic the loss of life that the attacks on Afrikaner farms have had, but the situations are certainly similiar. We've already seen how the entitlement mentality creates poverty and crime in our inner cities. How much longer until that situation devolves into shanty towns ? As far as racial tensions go, they're only going to get worse with leftist race baiters like Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson running amok.

It may have took us a hundred years to get here, but we don't have a hundred years to fix it, that's for sure.

God help us all.

Wacist, Wacist, Wacist!

Since the failed presidency of  JFK, the moonbats of the Ignorant Left have pushed the narrative that Conservatives are a bunch of Archie Bunker-like racists while spewing intellectual vomit like this:

Are You Ready For ANOTHER Solyndra, Patriots ?

Is jy gereed vir 'n ander Solyndra, patriotte?

(Translation from Afrikaans to English: Are you ready for another Solyndra, patriots ?)


From the Export-Import Bank of The United States:

"JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA: The Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank) and the Industrial Development Corp. of South Africa Ltd. (IDC) today signed a Declaration of Intent (DoI) to help advance the South African government’s Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) and the South African Renewable Initiative (SARi). Under the agreement, Ex-Im Bank will assist in financing up to $2 billion worth of U.S. technologies, products and services to South Africa’s energy sector, with an emphasis on clean-energy development.

Signing the DOI were Fred P. Hochberg, Ex-Im Bank chairman and president; Geoffrey Quena, chief executive officer of the IDC; and Gert Gouws, chief financial officer of the IDC. The signing took place during the South Africa-United States Strategic Dialogue, which was hosted by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

'South Africa is a dynamic market that offers enormous opportunities for American companies,' said Chairman Hochberg. 'This agreement will help ensure that Ex-Im Bank continues to provide financing to South African buyers that want to buy high-quality U.S. goods and services. This partnership will help create jobs and lasting economic opportunities for both our countries.'

Established in 1940, the IDC is a South African national development finance institution set up to promote economic growth and industrial development. It is owned by the South African government under the supervision of the Economic Development department. The IDC's primary objectives are to contribute to the creation of balanced, sustainable economic growth in South Africa and on the rest of the continent.
Ex-Im Bank is open in over 180 countries and has identified nine key markets that offer great potential for U.S. exports. South Africa was chosen as one of these markets due to the size of its economy and close trading and investment ties to the United States. South Africa is the largest economy in Africa and the 29th largest economy in the world. Its GDP growth rate is expected to be 2.2 percent in 2012 and 2.7 percent in 2013.

As the largest U.S. export market in sub-Saharan Africa with $7.3 billion of exports in 2011, South Africa is a key economic partner for the United States. Additionally, South Africa is seeking significant investments in the following sectors: power, aviation, transportation and mining, thus creating a demand for high-quality American products and services in these industries. Ex-Im Bank authorized more than $930 million in financing to support U.S. exports to South Africa in FY 2011."

Before we dig into this billion dollar man-made disaster, I guess we should learn exactly what the "Export-Import of The United States" actually is.

From the good folks at the Heritage Foundation:

"The Export-Import Bank provides taxpayer-subsidized loans to U.S. exporters. The bank’s charter will expire at the end of May. President Obama supports a four-year extension and, further, wants to increase the bank’s $100 billion loan limit by an additional $40 billion.

Speaking last week at Heritage, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) said the bank should be completely abolished. His legislation, the Export-Import Bank Termination Act, would end this form of corporate welfare.
'[The Ex-Im Bank] basically provides government-subsidized, essentially loans, low-interest payments, and all the rest to foreign corporations that receive exports from American companies,' Amash explained. 'It’s the kind of corporate welfare we should do away with. We should have a free-market system; taxpayers shouldn’t be on the hook for subsidized loans to anyone. I see it as just another Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac in the making and I have a bill to end it.'

Despite opposition from conservatives, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) reportedly reached an agreement to extend the bank’s lending authority.
Supporters of the extension claim there is greater demand for the bank’s services because of combined effects of the collapse of the financial markets in 2008 and 2009 and the European debt crisis. Critics, however, complain that expanding the bank’s loan limit in this environment is asking for a repeat of Fannie and Freddie. Even at its best, the bank just picks winners of a few exporters and hopes there are no losers."

Give yourself a gold star, Dear Reader! You're right! This is not a good thing. In fact, it's about as good as a long term stay in a Turkish prison. The Export-Import Bank has loaned YOUR money to the likes of Pemex (the state oil company of Mexico) and Petrobras (the state oil company of Brazil). Think about that as you pay $3.80 a gallon at the pump. (Just make sure you haven't eaten in the last hour before doing so. The author bears no responsibility if you blow chunks in your car.)

But don't worry. You may be getting screwed, but at least someone is making money. That person is...wait for it...wait for it...

Yep! The Fuhrer himself, George $oros, has made a killing from this type of Crony Capitalism.

"His New York-based hedge-fund firm, Soros Fund Management LLC, sold 22 million U.S.-listed common shares of Petrobras, as the Brazilian oil company is known, according to a filing today with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Soros bought 5.8 million of the company’s U.S.-traded preferred shares.
Soros is taking advantage of the spread between the two types of U.S.-listed Petrobras shares, said Luis Maizel, president of LM Capital Group LLC, which manages about $4 billion. The common shares were 21 percent more expensive than preferred today, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
Petrobras preferred shares have also a 10 percent additional dividend, said William Landers, a senior portfolio manager for Latin America at Blackrock Inc.

'Given that there will most likely never be a change in control in the company, I see no reason to pay a higher price for the common shares.' Brazil’s government controls Petrobras and has a majority stake of voting shares."


Angry yet ? No ? Well, I'm just gonna have to try harder. Fred Hochberg, the chairman of the Export-Import Bank is as dirty as they get.
From the Washington Compost :


"Hochberg is a longtime Democratic Party donor and was among the overnight guests in the Clinton White House. He was a bundler for both Hillary Clinton and Obama in 2008. During the 2008 election cycle, he donated more than $108,000, almost exclusively to Democratic candidates and the party. Hochberg was appointed by Clinton as a deputy and acting administrator of the Small Business Administration and ran that agency's transition effort under Obama. He has served as dean of the New School for Management and Urban Policy and on the boards of several public agencies, charitable organizations and private companies."

And guess what ? The openly homosexual Hochberg flew through his Imperial Senate confirmation vote to head up the Export-Import bank. In fact, it was unanimous. (Way to go, Team -R. Way to go. Your courage is inspiring. /sarc) Now, at this point, I thought we'd be done with Fuhrer $oros, but I'm loaded with caffeine, and Bing is just so darn easy to use. (Memo to the bottom feeders in the arrogant and lazy mainstream media: Give it a try one day. Maybe, just maybe, you'll outscoop me one day. I doubt it, but why not give the old college a try ?)

When he's not doing the Crony Capitalism thing, Fred Hochberg likes to be a left-wing nutjob. He was a former board member of the Human Rights Campaign, a radical LGBT "rights" group. In 2008, it received $200, 000 from the $oros funded Open Society Institute. (H/T Discover the Networks ). In fact, the Human Rights Campaign is filled with raving left-wing commie lunatics.

From Discover the Networks:


"Meanwhile, other HRC personnel maintain close ties to all manner of leftwing political figures and activist groups:
Ty Cobb previously served as counsel to Senator Ted Kennedy.

Allison Herwitt was a former lobbyist with the National Abortion Rights Action League, now known as NARAL Pro-Choice America.

Darrin Hurwitz served as in-house legal counsel for America Coming Together.

Terry McGuire worked with the New Mexico League of Conservation Voters on behalf of John Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign.

Susanne Salkind was a regional field manager for NARAL Pro-Choice America.

Christine Sloane has held positions with Greenpeace USA and NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina.
David M. Smith was communications director for Senator Ted Kennedy.

Joe Solomonese (HRC president) is the former CEO of EMILY’s List. He began his career working as an aide to Democratic governor Michael Dukakis of Massachusetts, and also assisted with Barney Frank’s 1990 congressional campaign.

David A.C. Turley worked for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign in 2008, after Hillary Clinton had dropped out of the race.

Cuc Vu worked for AFL-CIO and the SEIU alongside Eliseo Medina. She is also a founding board member of the Mi Familia Vota Education Fund and has served on the board of the National Immigration Forum. "

Given the fact that the Export-Import Bank is infested with leftist corruption, it's no real surprise that it would bend over backwards for the communist African National Congress government that's running South Africa into the ground. (Regardless of what the lapdogs in the arrogant and lazy mainstream media would have you believe, South Africa simply traded one tyranny for another when the socialist Nationalist government, which instituted Apartheid, fell and was replaced by the ANC, who at one point had death camps---I'm sorry---"reeducation camps" in Angola. I throw up a little in my mouth every time some lib journalist calls Nelson Mandela a "civil rights activist".)

In fact, Genocide Watch (not exactly a right-wing outfit) had this to say about the deteriorating conditions in South Africa:

"After many years when such songs were no longer sung, in 2010, prominent members of the ANC Youth League, in particular Julius Malema, President of the ANC Youth League, openly sang the 'Shoot the Boer' song at ANC Youth League rallies. Not only did revival of the song strike fear into the hearts of Boer farmers, but it has actually been sung during attacks on white farmers. It is an incitement to murder white Afrikaner farmers. Over 3000 white farmers have been murdered since 1994. The South African police have not made investigation and prosecution of these farm murders a priority, dismissing them as crimes by common criminals.

The government has disbanded the commando units of white farmers that once protected their farms, and has passed laws to confiscate the farmers’ weapons. Disarmament of a targeted group is one of the surest early warning signs of future genocidal killings. A recent outbreak of violent farm invasions has led to casualties among white South Africans. The farm invasions are direct results of calls by Julius Malema and his Deputy, Ronald Lamola for whites to give up their land without compensation, or face violence by angry black youths 'flooding their farms.' "

In other words, South Africa is about to turn into Zimbabwe. Just ask South African president (and wannabe genocidal dictator) Jacob Zuma. Again, from Genocide Watch:

"President Jacob Zuma sang 'Shoot the Boer' at the ANC Centenary Celebration event in January of 2012. He claimed that its use at the ANC Centenary was not intended as hate speech, but rather to commemorate the struggle against apartheid. Despite President Zuma’s proclaimed intent, his singing of the song may be contributing to an increasingly hostile environment that threatens the safety of white South Africans. The number of murders of Boer farmers has increased each month in 2012."
Ladies and gentlemen, should our tax dollars be going to maniacs like this ? Would this be any different than handing billions of dollars to Idi Amin, or Papa Doc ? I'll freely admit that I'm somewhat biased since I have some Afrikaner bloed in me, but c'mon! How much more blatant does this need to be ? (I'm also a proud Zionist Jew in addition to being a natural born American Conservative. Needless to say, I'm probably the most politically unacceptable human being on God's green and cooling Earth. Oh, how I relish it!)

Aside from the fact that "green" energy is nothing more than commie snake oil and that there's a very good chance the loan will never be repaid since South Africa is drifting closer and closer to civil war, South Africa doesn't even need the money. If it wanted to waste billions on solar panels, it could use its own money. South Africa is the fourth largest gold producer in the world and its fifth largest diamond producer. The only reason South Africa is "poor" (compared to the United States, but certainly not when compared to the rest of Africa) is its government. The Apartheid Nationalist government was a collectivist nightmare and the African National Congress is even worse. South Africa has never had a true free market economic system and the end result of that is its current societal anarchy. This is why We the People have to fight tooth and nail to preserve it.

Back to our original question: Is jy gereed vir 'n ander Solyndra, patriotte? (Translation from Afrikaans to English: Are you ready for another Solyndra, patriots ?) Answer: Nope, especially when it involves money taken from me by force, using it to enrich Crony Capitalists, and having it handed to genocidal maniacs.

You...You...Right-Wing Hate Monger, You!

"You....You...Right-Wing Hate Monger, You! Why don't you and your Klan buddies go iron your sheets! The only reason why you and your Nazi friends in the Tea Party hate Obama so much is because he's black!"

If you don't hear this crap at least once a day as a Conservative, you're simply not fighting the good fight. Like all real Conservatives, if I got a dollar every time I was called a racist for believing in limited Constitutional  government, I'd be a millionaire with a Swiss bank account, sort of like DNC Chairthing Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. Sadly, the rules don't work that way, and being called a wascally wacist is one of the many indignities I'm forced to endure every day, just like most of you out there.

Now, I could recount the racist beginnings of the Progressive Bowel Movement to disprove the above nonsense. I could bore the socks off of you talking about how Margaret Sanger envisioned family planning (AKA--The Pro Death Movement) as a way of exterminating blacks. Heck, for that matter, we could talk about Woodrow Wilson segregating the military as well. For those who like their racism more recent, we could talk about Bull Connor and Orval Faubus, two proud segregationists and two proud members of the Democrat Party. Uh-oh! I'm not bringing enough diversity to my roll call of leftist racism, so if I know what's good for me, I better not forget to mention Jesse "Hymietown" Jackson or Al "Crown Heights" Sharpton. If we really wanted to get controversial, we could even discuss Nobel Peace Prize winner Nelson Mandela singing "Kill the Farmer, Shoot the Boer". (No, I didn't forget our dog-eating, homosexual agenda pushing Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama. Why must everything be about that asshole, anyway ?)

I could do all of those things, but I don't feel like writing a book report about Jonah Goldberg's Liberal Fascism or Ann Coulter's Demonic. They're great books and among my all time favorites, but I thought for this column, we'd go in a different direction. Let's see, oh, I don't know, what Tom Metzger, director of the White Aryan Resistance thinks about the Conservative Movement, Conservatives, and the Right in general.

And awaaaaaaaaay we go, from a 2005 interview on

(Emphasis will be added where appropriate. Snarky comments will be in brackets [ ].)


"Interviewer: Let's get it straight. Is White Aryan Resistance a right wing organization? Do you identify yourself with the right wing movement?

Metzger: No, I do not identify with the right wing. I was a right winger into the 70's but I left the right in late 70's. The right is so reactionary it goes nowhere....."

"Interviewer: [T]hey mislead their followers" you said. What do you mean by 'misleading'? Convincing the members of their organizations that two plus two equals five?

Metzger: They do the same old failed things over and over never winning anything. They waste time with uniforms and flags and rallies. I promote revolution against the Capitalists and the Social Marxists." [Talk about doublethink! What a maroon!]

"Interviewer: There was once a group named "Knights of Freedom" whose leader was Decker and his original name is Greenbaum. As far as I can see his group [of] hard core NEO Nazis does not exist, but I would like to ask you why the Jews join our movement? Were there other Jews who joined to movement beside Knights of Freedom?

Metzger: That's not strange at all. The Jews tried to join Hitler. One was even in the first few that joined. The reason the Jews hate Nazis is primarily because they didn't come up with the idea first. The group you mentioned was just another Hollywood Nazi style group. There are dozens of them in this country. Uniform freaks, malcontents, father fetishes and even homosexuals. They don't even know that National socialism was a leftist idea. Here they sound like National capitalists. They love To dress up and march around while the police save them every time. They never think of clever ways to beat their opposition in the shadows. They always stand up and say HIT ME!! It's so embarrassing. When I did it in the 70's and 80's we crushed the communist [More doublethink!] race mixers. We beat them bloody and were never arrested or saved by police. In almost all cases now the police are as much an enemy as the others."


 Yeah, I feel like taking a shower, too.

I know that earlier in this column that I didn't want to talk about our dog-eating, homosexual agenda-pushing, Catholic persecuting, Jew-hater in Chief Barack Hussein Obama, but he's a hard guy to ignore, especially since he's destroying the Free World. Once again, here's Tom Metzger, giving his opinion on the First Foreign Born President:


"The corporations are running things now, so it’s not going to make much difference who's in there, but McCain would be much worse. He’s a warmonger. He’s a scary, scary person--more dangerous than Bush. Obama, according to his book, Dreams Of My Father, is a racist and I have no problem with black racists. I’ve got the quote right here: 'I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s white race.' The problem with Obama is he’s being dishonest about his racial views. I’d respect him if he’d just come out and say, 'Yeah, I’m a black racist.' I don’t hate black people. I just think it’s in the best interest of the races to be separated as much as possible. See, I’m a leftist. I’m not a rightist. I hate the transnational corporations far more than any black person." 



Now, I know as well as you do that writing this article is kinda like farting in a hurricane. It really isn't going to matter in the grand scheme of things. The Ignorant Left will always believe that 2+2=5 no matter how much evidence to contrary is presented to them. However, for those of us who know 2+2=4, it's further proof that the Right is, well, right.
