The Big Apple has a communist core!

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

Since its opening, I’ve been spending quite a bit of time at the So. Florida Fair this year.  The lights, the sights, and the sounds are all very cool.  The people watching is great, and there’s lots of fun stuff to do.  My favorite thing this year has been the sand sculpture in the main pavilion.

Just an amazing work of art has been created from simple sand and water depicting multiple scenes from NYC.  From the prominently centered Statue of Liberty to some of the well-known skyscrapers and bridges, right down to the Wall St. Bull, Broadway, the subway, and a cab.  It’s all there; all the things we associate with NYC!

While I watched the sculptors sculpt and smooth, and do all of the things needed to create such a piece, I talked to them just a bit and asked what would become of it after the Fair was done.  Simply put; by virtue of it being nothing more than sand and water, it will be unceremoniously scooped onto dump trucks and hauled away to wherever the sand is needed.  Temporarily beautiful for a moment and then gone…done!

And then the irony hit me!  For all of its problems, NYC is, or at least was, a beautiful city with lots to offer. However, under the recent city administrations and now the newly seated mayor, NYC has transformed itself into a city made of sand and water, and just like the sand sculpture it is destined to collapse.  

Here’s why!  NYC has just finished the illegal and contentious third term reign of Michael Bloomberg, a very liberal, socialist leader that for much of his tenure he was overly pre-occupied with his desire to dis-arm all Americans.  All the while being protected by a gaggle of armed to the teeth security, I might add.

Enter Barack Obama’s dream come true; Bill DiBlasio, the man that will no doubt be scooping up many of the headlines while Obama and his minions use those distractions to continue their destruction of America.  Frankly, I expected NYC to elect another wishy-washy liberal, (independent or democrat) with socialist leanings; however the voters have outdone themselves this time by electing an avowed communist.  By the way, that isn’t just a bunch of hype; even the Washington Times has his number.

Since all the failed socialist policies didn’t work, I guess they figured, “…what the heck, let’s give full blown communism a shot.”  I’m guessing that either there are no refugees from Cuba or China, or even the ‘old’ Soviet Union living up there, or they’ve been very silent; because I sure didn’t hear anyone sounding the alarm bells about this guy and his ideology.  Socialism always softens the path for its big brother Communism.

A simple Google search of this guy should have sounded as many alarms as checking the president’s credentials should have done back before the election of 2008.  In both cases, neither man would pass even the most basic FBI background check for access to either of their respective offices, but there they sit, elected by foolish lemmings that won’t do even a modicum of research before pulling the lever in the voting booth.  

New York, you’ve been duped by lots of wolves with sheep’s skins over the years, however this time the wolf wasn’t even attempting to hide his true colors.  Although his tenure may only last a term, he will set things in motion that will see NYC wash out to sea like one really big sand sculpture.  Socialism always softens the path for its big brother Communism, and NYC has been softening for a long time. God help them.

Pedophilia....soon to be accepted by culture?

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

You cannot imagine how much I want to be proven wrong about this article, but I believe in my heart of hearts that Western culture is preparing, one small step, one legislation, one whatever at a time, to rapidly embrace, or at very least overlook and tolerate, the evil scourge of pedophilia as part of the increase in sexual and humanistic depravity in general. As a precursor; while reading, please try to envision this as a recipe, with the separate, factual pieces of information added into the same sifter, at the same time, and mixed into a batch of “what the hell?”  Just like any recipe, no one ingredient can get the job done by itself. Please note when reading, letters in RED are links.

To start with, I cannot help but reflect on all the times in history when children were in such grave danger from pedophiles, predators, and murderers of every kind, while their parents, without so much as a whimper of resistance, did nothing to protect them from obvious, if accepted, evil.  

Among those evil times are the centuries leading up to and during the time of Noah, when mankind’s bloodlines had become so corrupted by demonic interaction with humans that God chose to destroy all but Noah and his family.  Then, soon after the time of Noah, during the times of the Canaanites, Ammonites, Babylonians, and other 'evilizations’ such as Sodom and Gomorrah, throughout the near east and North Africa; beyond sexual perversions of every stripe, there were burnt offerings of living children to molech.  

We may no longer see graven stone images with the likeness of molech, nor the blazing ritual fires used to devour those helpless infants; however, whether many recognize it or not, to a very real extent, our culture continues to offer children to this demon via the horror of abortion.  I might add, this article as well as this one came to my attention just before press time.  Both show clear evidence of the ongoing attack on Christianity which is contributing to the evil described in this article. 

The later Egyptian, Greek and Roman Empires also offer strong examples of such vile conditions; when sexual perversion, bestiality, and immorality of every kind were rampant before their respective falls.

Clearly, depravity and sexual degeneration are not new phenomena.  However, Western culture and our children have been mostly protected from it for many centuries, at least on the scale of the Biblical proportions mentioned above.  That is, until very recently! There is a rapidly growing resurgence of the destruction of our youth, and the following recipe is how I see it unfolding and sifting together.

New focus ahead

Written by The Patriots Press on . Posted in Op-Ed

Well, here it is.  As quick as you can say “what happened,” another year has come and gone. As this year closes and is reviewed by the pundits and talking heads, we will hear the normal barrage of what was the most important story, who was the most influential person, the best and the worst, and so forth.  I’ll leave all of that to them because frankly, there’s work to do and I just don’t have the time.

Starting with a new Op/Ed which will be published right after the New Year, The Patriots Press will be renewing our focus on what we consider to be the most important cultural issues. Some hard facts are going to be  exposed and fingers are going to be pointed at those responsible, and while I will never intentionally offend anyone, I recognize that some of what I’ll have to say over the coming months may very well do that.  Oh well!  Keeping our mouths shut over the last several decades has cost We the People a lot of lost ground in different arenas and on various fronts.  In short, it is time for conservatives everywhere to band together and get very busy.

The elections are right around the corner and we MUST make Obama a lame duck by cleaning house not only in DC, but also on the local level. We won’t win every race, but we have to win most of them to tip the scales, and we must be vigilant to ensure that the cheating is minimized.  That means we have to really wake up, get our butts off the couches and get to work.  And that starts on January 1, 2014.

Over the coming months I’m going to have a lot to say about a lot of things and I’m looking forward to the challenges; so for now, and from the bottom of my heart, as we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Savior, let me offer you my very best wishes for a joyous, blessed, and merry Christmas surrounded by loved ones, and a prosperous New Year.

Stay safe and well my friends.

Lest we forget...December 7, 1941

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

For a number of years, the clouds of war were gathering and we knew it; sabers were rattled by all sides all around the planet, threats were made and answered, Europe was under siege by the Nazis and many of our friends were falling under their Blitzkrieg, all while the rest of the world was holding its breath with worry and anticipation.

Then it happened!  Early in the morning on December 7, 1941, seventy-two years ago, the United States Naval Base in Pearl Harbor was brutally attacked without provocation by the Imperial Japanese Navy.  In all, 2402 of our military personnel were killed, a huge segment of our Pacific Fleet lay sunk or crippled, and in a moment, WWII had begun and we were up to our neck in it.

Almost immediately, many of our young men and women of the Greatest Generation found themselves enlisting in the Armed Forces; those that couldn’t for one reason or the other, got involved in civil projects; everyone pitched in where they could, whether it was simply buying War Bonds, serving in local USO shows, running bake sales, praying, or seeing soldiers off ‘trackside’ at North Platte, Nebraska and so many other places.  We can never adequately repay this dying breed of heroes for their sacrifices.

We were unified then with a common purpose, and that was to protect and defend our nation at all costs.  A lot of things happened during the prosecution of that war that historians downplay and diminish, and we certainly weren’t perfect; however, we did what we had to do and in less than 4 years we had prevailed.  Our enemies in both theatres were vanquished and had surrendered, and we began the process of healing and rebuilding.

Compare that to today.  We seem to have lost our resolve to win battles and wars; we have rules of engagement that tie the hands of our troops.  We have arrested, tried and imprisoned several of them for merely doing their jobs, and we have one young man held as a POW with nothing being done.  No longer do potential enemies fear or even respect us, no longer do we crush our foes into surrender; instead, our leaders, up to and including our president, placate them, give them money, aid, weapons, and technology, and encourage them even as they threaten us and our allies and our very way of life.  

That has got to change!  As we reflect on what happened that tragic day, we need to really consider where we were as a nation at that time, and we need to return to that place in our thinking.  To ensure our survival, we must do everything in our power to regain that resolve, we must become the ‘new’ Greatest Generation, and we must fight our enemies with the same determination of that Greatest Generation, and render them a pimple on the butt of history.  If we don’t, we will wake up one fine morning to find ourselves merely a blip of that same history wondering what happened.  We owe it to them, ourselves, and to our children.

Reality Time!!!

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

Of late, I have been discussing and warning my readers about our '$17T’ debt and how long it would take to pay off.  It’s actually around $100T given the massive unfunded mandates, but I keep my argument simple at the $17T number so even liberals can understand it.  

As a reminder, (click for details) I have talked about paying it down by $100M a day without factoring in the interest and that it would take 468 years to pay it off at that rate, (by the way, at $1B a day, that would ONLY be 46.8 years). And again, those numbers are real math without the interest factored in. However, now for some reality!

There IS interest, a lot of it…$417B a year currently!!  Click for details.

That’s almost another half a Trillion a year over and above the average of $9.5B that we’re spending every day. Click for details. 

In 2012 alone the US Gov’t spent $3.6T; however they only took in $2.5T, which means they spent over $1T more than the total revenues; which is a sight better than the $1.5T over-spent in 2009.    

You might want to know how we can pay this off..?  Very simple, (tongue in cheek)…all we need to do is pay $1.14B a day just to cover the interest and at least another half Billion a day on the principal which would be $182.5B towards that principle balance.  It will still take decades; but if it doesn’t scare the snot out of you that we would only be paying down the principal an amount equal to less than half of the current annual interest, you may be in a coma.
