A week ago, former comedian Jim Carrey publicly advocated for restricting the law-abiding citizen’s access to firearms. He was militating against a right plainly spelled out in the Constitution.

This week, Jim Carrey has put his name to a letter advocating relaxing drug laws and clemency for drug offenders. The letter also hints at restoring voting rights to felons at the federal level, which up to now has been a state issue. These same people fight against voter ID, which protects the voting rights of Americans who have broken no laws.

Whatever you may think of the drug war, and I question the growing militarization of ordinary police forces, Carrey’s two positions are common on the left: Against the law-abiding citizen’s right to bear arms, simultaneously for the law breaker whose actions make the law-abiding citizen’s self-defense necessary. “Free Mumia” goes with universities hiring domestic terrorists goes with “gun free zones” that help killers plan massacres.

Carrey and other liberals do not see the contradiction here. Your right to bear arms, written into the Constitution, does not count. Yet they will find shadows and penumbras to create rights that are not written there.

On issues of life, liberals tend to favor the most radical policies on abortion, while they oppose the death penalty for our worst criminals. In court this week they won a victory allowing people of any age to purchase a powerful abortifacient drug, meaning children will end up buying, using, and probably being harmed by this drug. When a girl is harmed and sues the manufacturer, the same liberals will stand up and denounce “Big Pharma.” Liberals are literally turning a blind eye now to the ongoing trial in Pennsylvania, in which the details of an abortion mill/charnel house are being laid bare. Kermit Gosnell’s trial is among the most grisly in American history. But the lives of those children he and his employees callously snuffed and snipped out do not matter to liberals, at all. Their silence says all that needs to be said. Liberals who favor the death of the thousands of children killed at Gosnell’s slaughter house will oppose meting out the death penalty to the doctor who systematically killed them.

On the other hand, President Obama, Hillary Clinton and other liberals incessantly claim that their policies are — sing along if you’d like — “for the children.” MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry advocates for the collective against the family in an ad, yet pushes against any collective disgust or restrictions when it comes to abortion. She says children matter to all of us, yet if a child is born while a doctor is trying to kill her, that child does not matter at all. Gosnell is free to keep her feet in a jar, as he did with many of his victims.

Liberals also claim to be be voices for the powerless against the powerful. If they really cared about the children, and were really advocates of the powerless against the powerful, would they not see in the Gosnell trial a chance to side with both? Likewise, they claim to be women’s advocates, yet women were victims at Gosnell’s horror lab. He employed a person with no medical education at all to anesthetize patients. Women were injured and died due to his unsafe and unsanitary practices, practices government ignored for years.

Liberals have nothing at all to say about any of this. Nothing.

And they apparently see no contradiction between their rhetoric and their true policies. If liberals have a conscience, even the alleged crimes of Kermit Gosnell does not sear it.

The mental jujitsu that it takes to be a modern liberal doesn’t stop there. If you’re a law-abiding Christian church leader in America, the Obama administration wants to dictate to you, tell you whom to hire and what products you will pay for through insurance. But if you’re a drug cartel operative in Mexico with designs on expanding your business in the US, liberals want to make sure your path across the border is smooth. Liberals create “free speech zones” on university campuses that explicitly restrict free speech that liberals don’t like. Liberals claim to be for education, yet always side with unions that oppose firing incompetent teachers. Liberals claim to be racially tolerant, yet routinely launch racist attacks against minorities who disagree with them, as Clarence Thomas, Ted Cruz and our own Allen West can testify. Liberals claim to be pro-woman, yet demonize women leaders like Margaret Thatcher, Sarah Palin and Condoleezza Rice. Liberals claim to be pro-science, yet ignore the science on the beginning of life and on climate and everything else that contradicts their political point of view. They claim to be lovers of reason, yet get into a discussion with one and if it doesn’t go their way, liberals tend to become the most hysterical shriekers on earth. Despite their claims to be open-minded and free-thinkers, the America that liberals are trying to create has no room at all for anyone who disagrees with them, on anything. Their America would consist of endless purges as political correctness evolves and metastasizes, a movie we’ve seen before in France and Cambodia. Liberals claim to stand for freedom, yet consistently expand the power of a less and less accountable bureaucratic state. They’re for due process for foreign terrorists, against due process for the American farmer on whose land an endangered species resides. They’re pro-choice, as long as you choose what they want you to choose. Choose to go to church, listen to Rush Limbaugh, hunt, or vote Republican and watch how tolerant and pro-choice they really are.

Take it all in, and it leaves little room for the existence of a well-meaning liberal. There must be some, but the vast majority must be either dupes who do not really understand the effects of their beliefs, they have succumbed to bullying or are liberals just to be seen as cool, or they know exactly what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, and who stands in their way and must therefore be destroyed.

"Despite their claims to be open-minded and free-thinkers, the America that liberals are trying to create has no room at all for anyone who disagrees with them, on anything." Yep, yet they are still referred to as "liberals." They may well consider themselves "liberals," and old and honorable term, but they are not. Can't we devise a better descriptor? I fancy and use "librul," but there are probably better.

Sorry, must state the obvious conclude with a plan. Lest We The People forget , Mr. Rockefeller participates in this folly, too.
As of June 2011 The Bilderberg Conference lists some 130-odd (shifting) individuals as participants. This involved some 21 countries.
Then there is the Bilderberg Group (individuals), researched and presented in a documentary by Mr. Alex Jones in 2012. This Group has a floating membership of the worlds wealthiest, rich and “noveau Riche.” Proof of this is Mr. George Soros, Warren Buffet and a select few named individuals per Forbes’ list of worlds’ 100 billionaires. Then there are the “Old World” billionaires. Lastly, the BRICs. Yes, newly minted billionaires from Brazil, Russia, India and China. These last are implementing their own Development Bank,too, with Bilderberg Group as its backdrop.
What does all this have to do with the USA, United Nations and world geopolitics, one asks?
Well, lets examine just one single example. American Presidential elections in 2008. The unexplained enormous amounts of funding provided for the Democratic runs for the Presidency are one concrete example of a shadowy Bilderberg Group influence on just American political fortunes alone. Then there was the ouvert calling out of Hillary Clinton (estimates for her 2016 run start at $2 billion dollars)to halt her campaign for the White House, throwing her organization's support behind Bilderberg Groups selection…Mr. Barak Obama. The same can be said for Western European elections since early 2007, Middle Eastern Elections (once held) and South/Latin American elections, too.
For Bilderberg’s Group of individuals, USA presents the biggest, most major challenges and toughest nut to crack. This because of one thing and only one: The US Constitution and its Bill of Rights. Declaration of Independence and Federalist Papers are also in this groups sights. Is there proof of this? Every American Progressive New Left Activist, from OWS’ers to Congresssional Progressive Caucus members to those Progressive sympathetic Senators and all progressive minions planted in every government agency be it federal, state, or local are aligned with one and only one mantra, the collapse of America’s Exceptionalism (religion, education, finance and governance). This is actively sought after in both its manifesto against American manufacturing; handcuffing of everything innovative with useless rules and regulations; and fiscal burdens difficult (if not impossible) to surmount (read:tax code). And explains the constant, inordinate amounts of funding of every opposition, every initiative and hundreds of hours of TV and radio ads every single day, all across these fruited plains (in English and Spanish).
Mr. Obama is Bilderberg Group’s champion. This is the only way to explain “crony-capitalism” on a scale that would dwarf any Tammany Hall participant. “Too Big To Fail,” TARP, Quantitative Easing, lax central bank controls, unexplained federal spending programs (approved by Congress), Budgets “too Big Too Fail,” mismanagement of policies and politics on a scale that would make Margaret Thatcher blush with shame. Foreign Policies designed to hamper, hamstring and maintain all Americans hostages to a “central government” intent on “command and control” over every aspect of any individual Americans “life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.” Suspending of Habeas Corpus, in all the USA, its territories and dominions is lowering the bar to any third world tin-horn dictators aims of “dialectical materialisms” goals.
Sad to say, is the only way of explaining current “State of Affairs” in the USA. Looking outside the box, Bilderberg Group is quite possibly the single most nefarious enemy America has ever confronted…billionaires operating in the shadows. Forget theories about “Free Masons” as American Presidents, Supreme Courts etc. Pay attention to manufactured crisis of: Kim Jong-Un, Kony Rebels, Syrian massacres, Israeli-American treaties, South Asian Ocean treaties…they’re all distractions, “smoke-and-mirrors.”
Pay attention to the Right-hand! Forget the Left-hand! Its all flim-flammery. Wake-up America. Powerful interests are preying upon the “spoils of geopolitics!” Focus on the prize…American Exceptionalism and We The People’s Constitution! Prey. Amen.
