Leaders Who Fail To Own Up To Mistakes Are Unfit For Office

“Those willing to ignore evil for political reasons should question their fitness for leadership of our nation.”

BEN CARSON — MAY 16, 2014


PAGES: 1 2

The recent escalating arguments over whether there should be further congressional hearings on Benghazi are troubling. The fact that there are substantial numbers of people who feel that there is nothing more to investigate when four American lives were lost (and no one has answered for this crime) provides an indication of how far our sense of justice has slipped.

This should not be a partisan issue because the implications of ignoring or prevaricating about the underlying mistakes will have far-reaching consequences. The United States has diplomatic establishments throughout the world; and if they can be attacked without consequences, it greatly diminishes our influence despite any protestations to the contrary.

What does it say about our judgment if we have diplomatic establishments for which we make inadequate provisions for protection? This is especially disturbing because it was revealed that requests by the consulate in Benghazi for more protection were refused. There had been attacks on the consulate not long before the fatal attack, and hostile actions had been taken against the British–which they were wise enough to react to appropriately.

Even more confounding was the decision to abandon our personnel at the consulate because someone decided that our military forces could not reach them in time to effect a rescue. How could such a decision be made when no one knew how long the hostile action would last? Several military personnel who were in the area ignored orders to stand down and instead rushed to the consulate with assault weapons–and resisted hostile forces long enough to allow some of their colleagues to escape, while sacrificing their own lives. Their heroic actions demonstrate the bravery and loyalty that characterize American military forces. I feel certain that those men had no doubt in their minds that reinforcements were on the way, and that if they could just hold out long enough, their efforts would be rewarded.

When our top officials make decisions to abandon our own people because they feel the situation is hopeless, they also abandon the concept of American exceptionalism and create doubt in the minds of all future military participants about the intention of their superiors to expend maximum effort to preserve their lives when they have sacrificed everything for our nation.

Making mistakes is part of being human, but the ever-increasing deception that is necessary to cover those mistakes when honesty is abandoned is evil. Those willing to ignore evil for political reasons should question their fitness for leadership of our nation. In this case, a blatant falsehood was promoted — namely that the Obama administration had international terrorist activity directed at America under control, and that the Benghazi incident was a spontaneous action resulting from the outrage of locals who had viewed an offensive anti-Islamic video. Undue importance was placed on promoting an image of U.S. strength during the weeks immediately preceding the presidential election of 2012.

Again, I must emphasize that if we, the American people, the American press, and the American political class, participate in the cover-up or ignore such an important story, we contribute to the demise of honesty and truth as pillars of our governing structure. In the book of Proverbs, King Solomon put it this way: “If a ruler listens to lies, those who serve him will be wicked.”

We also should be concerned about the attempt by some to ignore or downgrade the significance of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) scandal. The fact that something this contrary to the concept of freedom can happen in a country based on constitutional values and be characterized as a “phony scandal” by people who supposedly have the best interests of this country at heart again points to the danger of placing partisan politics above truth and honesty.

When politicians huddle and try to figure out ways to defend their leader or their party and ignore the well-being of their nation, the people must take notice and do everything within their power to make sure they are represented by those who share their beliefs, and not by those who are simply party loyalists.

Obviously, the IRS was used in inappropriate ways; or Lois Lerner would not have pleaded the Fifth Amendment. It is more than disturbing that the president of the United States and many in his party feigned outrage when the inappropriate actions of the IRS initially were exposed, but now cannot lend support to a full and unfettered investigation of activities that threaten the very liberty of the American people.

A bipartisan group should investigate both Benghazi and the IRS scandal in a transparent manner. If wrongdoing is discovered, those responsible must face consequences; and procedures must be established to ensure that such abuses never occur again.

Most importantly, the people must awaken and look objectively at the actions of both Democrats and Republicans and not simply accept what party leaders say. Freedom is not free, and vigilance in responsible voting is necessary to preserve it.



Man Behind Obama Assassination Plot Sentenced To Death. “I don’t have a lot to say here…”


The South Dakota trial of a 44-year-old man who claimed to have killed a woman as part of a larger plot to assassinate Barack Obama ended this week with the imposition of his sentence.

After pleading guilty to the charge he fatally stabbed a 75-year-old woman in 2011, James McVay presented the argument that he is mentally ill. Nevertheless, a jury unanimously voted this week to sentence him to death for the crime.

Circuit Judge Peter Lieberman upheld the decision during formal sentencing.

“I don’t have a lot to say here,” the judge said following the trial. “This is a situation where a jury’s verdict has a lot more weight than what I could say.”

During the trial, McVay’s account of the crime included his assertion that he murdered Maybelle Schein to steal her car and drive to Washington, D.C. to kill Obama. Authorities reportedly caught up with him in Madison, Wis. and took him into custody.

McVay’s lawyer, Traci Smith, urged Lieberman to withdraw the sentence in a last-minute appeal. The public defender argued that comments made during the prosecution’s closing arguments “inflamed the passions” of jury members. Lieberman, however, decided against the motion, asserting the decision was made after careful consideration of the facts presented during trial.

Nevertheless, the sentence is now set to go before the state Supreme Court for consideration. According to ABC News, the purpose of the review will be to determine three key aspects of McVay’s sentence.

“They include whether the sentence was affected by passion, prejudice, or any other arbitrary factor; whether the evidence supports the finding of a judge or jury of a statutory aggravating circumstance, and whether the sentence of death is out of line with the penalty imposed in other, similar cases.”




AMENPER: El Matrimonio, una Verdad Absoluta

La verdad Absoluta es fácil de encontrar si se quiere buscar

El concepto de la verdad absoluta viene desde el principio en que el hombre se preocupó por las cuestiones filosóficas.  Aristóteles, Platón y los filósofos griegos fueron los que iniciaron la existencia de la verdad absoluta, y la necesidad de que el hombre busque esa verdad para su propio bienestar y el de la sociedad que lo rodea.   En la cultura Judeo-Cristiana se confirmó esta filosofía.

Pero después de la revolución de los sesenta se estableció la relatividad de la verdad, cada uno podía tener su propia verdad entonces la verdad era maleable, se podía cambiar para ajustarse a la persona o a una filosofía para fines políticos o de una conducta social.  La conducta moral entonces se convirtió en algo relativo, algo opcional, y los que se aferran a la verdad absoluta, son retrógrados. .

Nuestra cultura condena cada vez más las verdades tradicionales como intolerantes y odiosas.

 Nos desprecian si nos negamos a llamar a lo malo bueno ya lo malo bueno . Cada día es más difícil tener los valores tradicionales judeo-cristianos, que han sido el fundamento de la civilización occidental, que han sido el fundamento para la constitución de la nación y para la conducta del núcleo familiar.

La nueva cultura americana ya no favorece a cualquiera ya sea religioso o laico que tengan valores ajenos a los de ellos.

Para avanzar su agenda usan la burla, tildando de ignorantes o arcaicos a los que son pro-vida  y pro  matrimonio tradicional”,  Debido a eso , los que mantenemos estos valores debemos estas dispuestos a  asumir las consecuencias de defender lo que consideramos esencial para la salud social.

 Nos amenazan con consecuencias si nos negamos a llamar a lo bueno, lo malo, y lo que es malo, bueno. Ellos nos exigen para conformar nuestro pensamiento a su ortodoxia , o si no decir nada en absoluto

La intimidación a permanecer en un silencio es insidiosa y en crecimiento, – Pero todos los que pagan un alto precio por defender el matrimonio tradicional tienen que considerar una pregunta antes que claudicar ‘ ¿Estoy avergonzado de mis principios?¿Pienso que estoy equivocado?.

Por supuesto , podemos evitar el escarnio público , podemos hacernos los “bobos” y quedarnos callado cuando nos toca de cerca el exponer nuestros principios a extraños y hasta a nuestros hijos y nietos. Todavía es aceptable ser un viejo con ideas antiguas si nos quedamos callados y no impulsamos nuestras ideas.  ¡Pero ¿es esto aceptable para nosotros mismos?  esto es como una autocensura ante la presión del enemigo.

¿Cómo podemos permanecer mudos ante el matrimonio homosexual?.  El matrimonio es inseparable de la familia, el matrimonio homosexual es, y siempre será una caricatura del núcleo familiar. Se puede aceptar al individuo homosexual, es su derecho a pensar y actuar como le venga en ganas, pero el matrimonio es el matrimonio, no una burla de una unión que no puede procrear porque no está constituida biológicamente para eso, porque biológicamente el matrimonio homosexual no existe

Nuestros principios no son verdades opcionales, son verdades absolutas. No pensamos así por fanatismo y sin fundamento, eso se lo dejamos a ellos.



Why Eric Holder Could Be The Reason You Can’t Get A Job

When a country loses the rule of law, its all downhill from there.



What separates a great nation from a banana republic?  The answer is simple; it’s the rule of law.  It is the notion that the leader of a country is not above the law but subject to it like everyone else.  If you travel to many seedy parts of the world, this concept is not the case.  The law of the land in these jurisdictions is whatever the dear leader says it is. No one in government is ever held accountable, unless you upset the dear leader.  This situation leads to corruption throughout all levels of society, from the policeman to the ministers and members of the legislature.  It reduces economic activity, entrepreneurship, and innovation.  This is why societies like China, Russia, and other dictatorial regimes do not have tsunamis of creatively destructive ideas as in the West.  They simply copy the innovations of other nations.  America is losing the rule of law and will suffer the political and economic consequences.  In fact, one could make the case that we are already feeling these consequences.

It doesn’t take much digging to find examples of our government flouting the rule of law.  We have an administration that will not enforce immigration law for political reasons.  We have the attorney general of these United States telling state attorneys’ general that they can ignore laws that have been passed by their legislatures.  We have a president who selectively enforces and changes law on a whim.  We have an attorney general who will not investigate voter intimidation, federal agencies that intimidate individual citizens and opposition groups, or anything that would bring discredit upon people and ideas he agrees with.  My friends, in America, we have corruption, pure and simple.

What is even more striking is the absence of a serious media outcry against this tyranny.  This is because the mainstream media is knee deep in corruption as well.  In the past, the media acted as a counterforce against a corrupt government.  Reporters sniffed out evidence of wrongdoing and exposed it as they believed that was good for the country.  This no longer is the case.

What is worse than a compliant media is the refusal of the opposition party to take legal and constitutional action against this corruption.  Refusal to act is the same as acquiescence.  The Republican Party, and Congress in general, has not stood up to this president.  He breaks the law at will and is not held accountable.

People wonder why our economy is suffering and unemployment is high.  People who voted for Obama wonder why they can’t find a job.  It is because in the absence of the rule of law, business hesitates.  They don’t hire or build new plants. They play it safe.  Taking risks in this environment can lead to disaster for a business as the dear leader can make or break you at will.  He is above the law.  It’s the same way in Russia.  Their economy suffers greatly from corruption.  Business cannot effectively operate unless you are a friend of the establishment.  America is headed in this direction.

M. Aleman: LA DESPEDIDA DEL CURA !  O nunca pero nunca llegues tarde.

Al Padre Pascual le estaban haciendo su cena de despedida por 25 años  de trabajo en una Parroquia.
Un político miembro de la comunidad fue invitado para dar un breve discurso.
Como el político tardaba en llegar, el sacerdote decidió decir unas
palabras él mismo para llenar el tiempo:
– ‘Mi primera impresión de la Parroquia la tuve con la primera
confesión que me tocó escuchar. 
Pensé que me había enviado el Obispo a un lugar terrible, ya que la primera persona que se confesó me dijo
que había robado un televisor, que les había robado dinero a sus
padres, había robado también en la empresa donde trabajaba, además de tener aventuras sexuales con la esposa de su jefe. También en
ocasiones se dedicaba al tráfico y a la venta de drogas. Y para
finalizar, confesó que le había trasmitido una enfermedad venérea a su
Me quedé asombrado y asustadísimo…
Pero cuando transcurrió un tiempo, fui conociendo más a la gente y vi
que no eran todos así, vi una parroquia llena de gente responsable,
con valores, comprometida con su fe. Y así he vivido los 25 años más
maravillosos de mi sacerdocio’.
Justamente en este momento llegó el político, por lo que se le dio la palabra.
Por supuesto, pidió disculpas por llegar tarde y empezó a hablar diciendo:
– ‘Nunca voy a olvidar el primer día que llegó el Padre a nuestra
Parroquia, de hecho, tuve el honor de ser el primero que se confesó
con él…’
MORALEJA: Nunca llegues tarde.

The Cato Institute released an updated 2013 study (original study in 1955) showing that welfare benefits pay more than a minimum wage job in 33 states and the District of Columbia . Even worse, welfare pays more than $15 per hour in 13 states. According to the study, welfare benefits have increased faster than minimum wage. It’s now more profitable to sit at home than it is to earn an honest day’s pay.
Hawaii is the biggest offender, where welfare recipients earn $29.13 per hour, or a $60,590 yearly salary, all for doing nothing.
Here is the list of the states where the pre-tax equivalent “salary” that welfare recipients receive is higher than having a job:
1. Hawaii : $60,590
2. District of Columbia : $50,820
3. Massachusetts : $50,540
4. Connecticut : $44,370
5. New York : $43,700
6. New Jersey : $43,450
7. Rhode Island : $43,330
8. Vermont : $42,350
9. New Hampshire : $39,750
10. Maryland : $38,160

31. Missouri : $22,800
32. Oklahoma : $22,480
33. Louisiana : $22,250
34. South Carolina : $21,910 
As a point of reference the average Middle Class annual income today is $50,000, down from $54,000 at the beginning of the Great Recession. Hawaii, DC, and Massachusetts pay more in welfare than the average working folks earn there. Is it any wonder that they stay home rather than look for a job. Time for a drastic change. America is virtually bankrupt.

America’s Environmental Shakedown

Taxpayers paid nearly $53 million in so-called environmental groups’ legal fees.


From 2009-2012, Department of Justice data shows American taxpayers paid nearly $53 million in so-called environmental groups’ legal fees.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has asked for a six-month delay in making a final determination on whether to list the Gunnison sage grouse as an endangered species—moving the decision past the November elections. An E & E report states: Colorado elected leaders “fear the listing could have significant economic impacts.”

The report continues: “WildEarth Guardians is not opposing the latest extension after Fish and Wildlife agreed to some extensive new mitigation measures that will be made in the interim, including increasing buffer zones around sage grouse breeding grounds, called leks, and deferring coal, oil and gas leasing.” It goes on to say: “But the Center for Biological Diversity, which is a party to the settlement agreements with WildEarth Guardians, said the latest extension is a bad move for the grouse, which it says has needed ESA protections for years.”

Two important items should be noticed in the Gunnison sage grouse story. One, the power the environmental groups wield. Two, part of appeasing the environmental groups involves “deferring coal, oil, and gas leasing.”

It is widely known that these groups despise fossil fuels. The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) brags about its use of lawsuits to block development—but it is not just oil and gas they block; it is virtually all human activity.

In researching for this week’s column, I have talked to people from a variety of industry and conservation efforts. Whether I was talking to someone interested in protecting big horn sheep, a fishing enthusiast, a rancher, or an attorney representing ranching or extractive industries, CBD seems to be a thorn in everyone’s side. All made comments similar to what Amos Eno, who has been involved in conservation for more than forty years, told me: “CBD doesn’t care about the critters. They are creating a listing pipeline and then making money off of it.” Environmental writer Ted Williams called CBD “perennial plaintiffs.”

In an April 8, 2014 hearing before the House Committee on Natural Resources, Karen Budd-Falen, a fifth-generation rancher and an attorney specializing in environmental litigation, talked about the need for ESA reform: “Public information regarding payment of attorney’s fees for ESA litigation is equally difficult to access.” Addressing HR 4316—which requires a report on attorney’s fees and costs for ESA related litigation—she says: “It should not be a radical notion for the public to know how much is being paid by the federal government and to whom the check is written.”

As she reports in her testimony, Budd-Falen’s staff did an analysis of the 276-page spreadsheet run released by the Department of Justice (DOJ) listing litigation summaries in cases defended by the Environment and Natural Resources Division, Wildlife Section. Although the DOJ release itself contained no analysis, her legal staff did the calculations and found nearly $53 million of taxpayer money was paid out over an approximate three-year period. However, she then shows how her own Freedom of Information Act requests have proven “that the DOJ does not keep an accurate account of the cases it defends”—making the actual dollar figure much higher.

Despite numerous attempts, the ESA has not had any major revisions in more than 25 years. The Wall Street Journal states: “The ESA’s mixed record on wildlife restoration and its impact on business have made the law vulnerable to critics.” Groups like CBD have twisted the intent of the law. Reform is now essential—not just to save taxpayer dollars, but to put the focus back on actually saving the species.” 

The author of Energy Freedom, Marita Noon serves as the executive director for Energy Makes America Great Inc. and the companion educational organization, the Citizens’ Alliance for Responsible Energy (CARE). Together they work to educate the public and influence policy makers regarding energy, its role in freedom, and the American way of life. Combining energy, news, politics, and, the environment through public events, speaking engagements, and media, the organizations’ combined efforts serve as America’s voice for energy.


This Is The Video Obama Doesn’t Want You To See: How Dems Stole The 2012 Election

Barack Obama’s destruction of his political enemies goes far beyond what Nixon did

KRIS ZANE — MAY 16, 2014



According to a report analyzing the release of 1500 pages of IRS emails and documents obtained by the government watchdog group Judicial Watch, specifically regarding congressional involvement:

Letters from U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, a Michigan Democrat, show his involvement in pressing the IRS to target mostly conservative organizations with cumbersome questionnaires seemingly calculated to slow down their applications for tax-exempt status in the middle of an election year.

These “letters”—amounting to strong-arm tactics to take out the Tea Party—carried the names of a dozen senators and involved multiple congressional hearings chaired by Levin that supposedly involved Homeland Security—“Homeland Security” apparently being a euphemism for taking out one’s political enemies.

An analysis of the Judicial Watch documents show a collusion—a conspiracy—between the IRS and congressional members to decimate the Tea Party, so that what happened in the 2010 mid-terms didn’t happen in the 2012 presidential election: That is, making sure Barack Hussein Obama won the election no matter what—even if he had to STEAL the election!

Richard Nixon’s articles of impeachment included this misuse of the IRS.

But Barack Obama’s use of the IRS to destroy his political enemies goes far beyond what Nixon did. It is not enough to demand that Barack Obama resign. He must be impeached immediately—now—today.

Watch VIDEO: Barack Obama’s Background Revealed

Who Is Jeb Bush’s Presidential Idol? The Answer Might Make You Sick

“He went and he cajoled, he begged, he threatened…”



As Jeb Bush continues positioning himself as the Republican establishment’s pick to run in the 2016 presidential election, he is increasingly alienating his party’s conservative base. In his latest outrageous proclamation, the former Florida governor explained that, if elected, he would rule in a style similar to Lyndon B. Johnson.

“He went and he cajoled, he begged, he threatened, he loved, he hugged, he did what leaders do, which is they personally get engaged to make something happen,” Bush said of Johnson’s approach to the legislature.

What he failed to mention, however, is what actually resulted from all of LBJ’s activism.

The Democrat, who presided over one of the nation’s most pronounced leftward lurches, established huge boondoggle programs, such as those included in his ‘Great Society’ and War on Poverty initiatives.

Johnson was also a master manipulator, often credited with establishing public policy meant to ensnare blacks in a cycle of dependence, ensuring they would be perpetually beholden to his party.

Aboard Air Force One, he reportedly told two governors that he would “have those n—gers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”

In another diatribe, he expressed disdain for “uppity” blacks.

“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before – the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”

In what some might consider a similar position of racial pandering, Bush has frequently spoken out in favor of amnesty for illegal aliens.

In addition to asserting that their constant violation of our laws amounts to an “act of love,” this week he said conservative opposition to amnesty “makes no sense to me.”



Peter Martori:

Democracia participativa

ECUADOR: Otra democracia arrasada por la marea totalitaria – por: Gerardo E. Martínez-Solanas

Existe una relativa timidez a la hora de calificar como dictaduras a regímenes que mantienen una apariencia electoralista y permiten un cierto grado de oposición.

Por muchos años, esta timidez exigía objetividad a la hora de señalar los excesos dictatoriales del Presidente Hugo Chávez y aspiraba a la solución de las urnas como solución civilizada para un mal gobierno. Esa timidez y pasividad permitió la consolidación de un régimen autoritario hasta el punto de llegar a la dictadura caprichosa y desorbitada de Nicolás Maduro.

Los excesos y abusos de Evo Morales en Bolivia y de Daniel Ortega en Nicaragua y la caprichosa incapacidad de gobierno que han demostrado estos caudillos al tiempo que consolidan por la fuerza su poder, han convencido a muchos de que la opción electoralista no funciona en esos países donde el poder está centrado en un dictador que no está dispuesto a ceder el poder ni a compartirlo.

A pesar de esta realidad reiterada por la que las débiles democracias latinoamericanas sucumben ante un líder carismático que acaba por aplastar a los mismos que lo entronizaron, contemplamos la misma timidez pusilánime a la hora de calificar el régimen de Rafael Correa en Ecuador como lo que es: una feroz dictadura.

Los que exigen objetividad y moderación en nuestro juicio al mandatario ecuatoriano se sienten fascinados por su capacidad académica, que descuella frente a la mediocridad e incapacidad de los Maduros, Morales y Ortegas del continente. Hablan también de soberanía electoral frente al hecho de que Correa todavía arrastra a un sector importante de la población a las urnas y a que hay un parlamento que a duras penas y sofocado por el poder ejecutivo todavía funciona con limitada autonomía.

A la hora de juzgar a estos regímenes que aspiran al totalitarismo del modelo cubano, el indicio más ilustrativo del propósito dictatorial es la forma en que esos regímenes -y en este caso el de Rafael Correa- arremeten contra la libertad de prensa y, en general, contra la libertad de expresión de sus ciudadanos.

Recientemente Rafael Correa visitó España y fue entrevistado por El País. Como es un hombre inteligente y preparado sorteó con maestría las preguntas más puntuales sobre estos temas, pero no logró convencer a ese diario, pese a la conocida tendencia socialista de su material informativo y sus editoriales. Sencillamente porque en España hay plena libertad de expresión y de prensa y la crítica o el análisis no son condenados como delitos de difamación. Y El País ejerció decorosamente esa libertad.

En esa entrevista defendió su “Ley Orgánica de Comunicación“, la cual cuenta con unos considerandos muy atractivos que adornan su preámbulo e impresionan al lector hasta que el buen observador y el estudioso se sumergen en el análisis de su parte dispositiva.

El hecho es que Rafael Correa propone y dispone los límites en la aplicación de las libertades de expresión y de prensa desde su trono presidencial. Su programa semanal de radio/TV es retransmitido “voluntariamente” a todo el país cada sábado en una enorme cadena en la que las emisoras “voluntarias” tienen sobre sí la espada de Damocles de la descalificación y el retiro de sus licencias o la confiscación dictada con el pretexto de combatir los oligopolios. El mismo Rafael Correa proclamó en una de las últimas retrasmisiones que esta Ley de comunicaciones sería lapìdaria para los disidentes:“¡Gracias a nuestra Ley de Comunicación se les acabó la fiesta! Esto es lo que acostumbraban estos cobardes: juzgar en los titulares y no en los tribunales”, dijo con su habitual arrogancia triunfalista. Y añadió con absoluta convicción: “No se puede opinar sobre un caso que está en proceso”. Y es Rafael Correa, con la anuencia de su camarilla, quien decide cuándo se puede y no se puede opinar, aprovechando las disposiciones de la nueva Ley y barajando sus ambigüedades cuando la autoridad del dictador pueda ponerse en duda por alguna de ellas.

El lenguaje de Correa se remonta a las “coletillas” que impuso a la prensa cubana Fidel Castro en sus primeros zafarranchos de combate contra los derechos y libertades de su pueblo. Por eso no tiene freno en su verborrea para tachar a los periodistas que se atreven a opinar libremente somo seres “malévolos”,“sicarios de tinta”“corruptos” y “cobardes”, entre muchos otros epítetos que desembocan en su juicio dictatorial de que son testaferros del imperialismo atrinchearados en esos antros“turbios y peligrosos” llamados “medios de comunicación privados”.

Todos sabemos que el control absoluto de la información es la herramienta más eficaz de las dictaduras y la más estricta en los regímenes totalitarios. ¿Cómo puede entonces nadie creer que subsiste todavía una estructura democrática en Ecuador, y muchísimo menos en Venezuela, Bolivia o Nicaragua? El éxito de estos regímenes de sembrar la confusión entre los mejor intencionados y de promover un pacifismo que les permite consolidar el dominio feroz que ejercen sobre sus pueblos, anima a otros regímenes autoritarios a ensayar estrategias encaminadas a amordazar la prensa y a limitar su capacidad crítica, como venimos presenciando en un gradual crescendo frente a los hechos que suceden en la Argentina actual.

Frente a los dictadores y a los pichones de dictador no hay otra opción que la resistencia firme y militante a sus abusos y una estrategia encaminada a su derrocamiento por los medios que sean necesarios.

El apaciguamiento y la pasividad han permitido que estos regímenes lleguen cada vez más cerca del poder absoluto como el que durante más de medio siglo ha ostentado el régimen cubano. La agresión feroz contra la libertad de prensa es ese primer paso decisivo. Desde que Correa alcanzó el poder, se han producido en Ecuador más de 800 agresiones (las que se saben) contra periodistas, incluyendo asesinatos que han quedado impunes, juicios penales, golpizas, multas millonarias, difamaciones públlicas utilizando el control de los medios por el aparato del Estado, cierre de medios de comunicación e intentos de controlar y penalizar las opiniones vertidas en la Internet.

Correa ha criminalizado la libertad de expresión sin que los organismos internacionales de derechos humanos lo condenen por semejante desafuero y ha impuesto un control absoluto mediante esta nueva Ley Orgánica de Comunicación, por la cual ningún caso de corrupción del gobierno o de crítica a su gestión puede ser reportada sin previa autorización ¡del mismo gobierno! Y los medios de prensa se ven obligados a pedir disculpas en términos perentorios cada vez que Correa se enoja por sus opiniones.

El control logrado sobre la libertad de expresión gracias a esta Ley demuestra también el control dictatorial del Poder Ejecutivo sobre el Poder Legislativo en Ecuador, por cuanto la Ley incluye más de 50 artículos que no fueron debatidos en el Congreso.

La libertad de expresión queda así limitada en Ecuador a un grupo político dominado por un dictador que decide a su conveniencia -y sin siquiera aparentar esfuerzo alguno de debido proceso- cuál es la verdad, cuándo y hasta qué punto una información es responsable y cuáles son los parámetros que determinan si un material informativo es de interés público o no.

Las soluciones pacíficas son el medio idoneo para instaurar una democracia, pero es un hecho natural que la oveja no puede dialogar con el lobo y salir con vida de esa experiencia.



Video: Congressman Gowdy’s Questions on Benghazi

Written by Gary North on May 16, 2014

I had not heard of Congressman Gowdy until yesterday. I hope to hear of him again.

He made a 3-minute presentation in front of the mainstream media’s agents. I have never seen anything like it. As an example of rhetoric, it is flawless.

He ended it exactly right.

He took no prisoners.

All in all, this was a bombshell. It was placed directly under the media, right where it belonged.

This is how it should be done. This is how it is rarely done.

Over 3,000,000 people have seen this. This is impressive. I hope 3,000,000 more see it. Or even more.
