Plunder Via Civil Forfeitures Exceeds Plunder From Burglaries

If you can't beat them, join them.

Between 1989 and 2010, U.S. attorneys seized an estimated $12.6 billion in asset forfeiture cases. The growth rate during that time averaged +19.4% annually. In 2010 alone, the value of assets seized grew by +52.8% from 2009 and was six times greater than the total for 1989. Then by 2014, that number had ballooned to roughly $4.5 billion for the year, making this 35% of the entire number of assets collected from 1989 to 2010 in a single year. According to the FBI, the total amount of goods stolen by criminals in 2014 burglary offenses suffered an estimated $3.9 billion in property losses. This means that the police are now taking more assets than the criminals.

Obama On Supreme Court? It Could Happen

The most corrupt politician in US history with a lifetime position to subvert the law and conduct fundraisers and to choreograph protests and riots?

Imagine the most prominent Anti-American figure on Planet Earth, the jihadist apologist, the only president who hates the culture and traditions and legacy and citizenry of the United States flipping us the bird for the rest of our lives. It could happen.

The silver lining is that this possible catastrophe could keep Obama on the ticket for years to come. The Republicans have gotten a lot of mileage out of running against Obama and when they don't run a candidate who wants to play kissy face with him, they almost always win.

We cannot afford more Democrats in the White House or Senate. The possibility of a jihadi Marxist on the Supreme Court makes RINO's like Kelly Ayotte a whole lot more attractive.

If Obama Is A Jihadi Quisling, He Sure Isn't Hiding It Very Well

Moment of Silence For Paris Victims. Notice Anyone Missing?

The President of the United States skipped out on the moment of silence for France's latest victims of workplace violence.

Keep in mind Obama also skipped out on the Charlie Hebdo show of support, not even allowing his VP or Secretary of State to attend. Excuses abound for the previous insult but if the president happened to be in Antalya immediately before or even during the ceremony, this can only be seen as a presidential disgrace.

Remember when they used to talk about this guy's presence? That is certainly not a word that defines him very well.

C. S. Lewis's Definition Of Hell

Thanks to Fausta's Blog for posting this.
“We must picture Hell as a state where everyone is perpetually concerned about his own dignity and advancement, where everyone has a grievance, and where everyone lives the deadly serious passion of envy, self-importance and resentment.”
C. S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters 

A Ray Of Hope From The Lost Generation

I like this Morgan Freeman better than the Obot Morgan Freeman.

The Lost Generation

It is easy to bash Millennials. Yes, they too shall inherit the Earth and the meek should run for cover.

I know. I know. I know. Millennials fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. Not every last one of them is a school shooter. Not every last one of them burns cities to the ground. Not every last one of them worships on the altar of Obama. Not every last one of them is a college agitator. Not every last one of them equates articulation with the volume control knob. Not every last one of them is a miserable crybaby angered over phantom grievances. But never have so many looked so ill-suited and ill-prepared for life itself.
