I didn't watch the debates the other night; I was too tired. So I listened carefully to, most especially, what Rush had to say, and also Glenn and Sean, as I was driving and working the next day. And it sounds like the Media was the loser, rather than any candidates or Parties. It could be the beginning of the end of the ideologically Marxist dominated Mainstream Media, or it could be a mere political bone-toss to gain votes. Time will tell. But the tight linkage between the Marxocrat Party and the Marxist Media was made publicly clear. Finally.
Chapter 9 of Culture=Religion+Politics is devoted to how "Frankfurt School" Marxism infected and eventually dominated American education, most especially Journalism education, and thereby became a double-whammy revolutionary tool against American Constitutionalism. Children were indoctrinated with it in formal education, and all citizens were propagandized with it in their daily news reporting. Over time, over multiple generations, most American citizens would have an unwarranted negative view of Capitalism and an unwarranted positive view of Socialism.
Chapter 7 was devoted to the Parties, and especially how the Democrat Party metamorphosed from the Slavery Party to the Secession Party to the Segregation Party to the Marxocrat Party of today. It was anti-American from its birth. The Confederate flag was and is the flag of their Party; the KKK was born of and is a branch of their Party.
And today, the Marxocrat Party and the News Media are so tightly bound in their overall anti-American Marxist ideology, and in their ownership by the same super-rich, Crony-Capitalist, donor-class "Club" that it is difficult to tell whether the Media owns the Party or the Party owns the Media.
Well, in this last debate, it seems that the Republicrat candidates radically took over control of the "show" that political debates have become. And, with Cruz in the lead, they delivered a public whipping to the Marxist sophists who were supposed to be publicly picking them all apart and destroying them in the public eye, according to the usual Media plan.
But don't expect the Moron Vote or the Dependent Vote or the fraudulent Non-Citizen Vote or the gigantic exponentially growing Government Employee Vote to be affected at all. The Marxocrat Party will not lose it's base. And it will cheat at the polls. That's what it does.
Beginning on Page 220 of Culture=Religion+Politics we discussed how to dismantle the two Political Parties and the Party process itself. Then, on page 222, we began the discussion of how to take down the Media, reversing the government policies originated with Woodrow Wilson, and return "The Media" to a strictly private, highly competitive business opportunity, which is what it was supposed to be from the beginning. It was never supposed to be driving the American bus. It was never supposed to have any government authority over any part of the political process.
I'm not going to go over all those details here, but state that it can be done, thanks largely to alternative media, and especially the internet. I would just like to discuss here the possibility of a new form of debate, completely out of the hands of the media. All of their "questions" are merely political speeches anyway, at the very least.
Why should a political debate be a "show" modeled after entertainment shows? Why should there be a "moderator" who gets to interject any statement or opinion or loaded question, and affect the outcome?
Why should an audience even be present to respond with whoops and cheers, applause and whistles, or boos and thrown fruit. Audiences can be "picked", and so can moderators. Political Debates should be judged by candidate statements that stand or fall on their own, not by audience responses.
The internet being what it is, and tools like Skype and various on-line meeting programs being what they are, I see no reason that a number of candidates could not be in the same live on-line meeting with no live audience and no moderator. Nothing other than a set of rules and a time keeper.
At the beginning of every segment of the debate, candidates draw straws to see who goes first, second, etc. At each segment of the debate, a topic appears on the screen that everyone is watching, such as "ECONOMY", or, "NATIONAL SECURITY", or, "NATIONAL DEFENSE", or, "FOREIGN POLICY", etc.
Then, in the pre-drawn sequence, a prerecorded one or two minute video of each candidate's position on that topic would be played, one at a time. After the last prerecorded topical video was played, the candidates would, one at a time, be given one or two minutes to respond to all the videos that just played. At the end of the allotted time of speaking, a 30-second warning would flash, and at the end of that 30-seconds the speaking candidate's microphone would be shut down, and the next candidate in line would be switched on.
They might get perhaps one more go-around in the same manner, but then, the next major topic would appear on the screen, and they would begin anew on the new topic, in the same manner; prerecorded speeches first, then, discussion, one at a time.
All of these debates would then be available on-line for replay any time in streaming video, and in printable transcript. There would be little or no doubt about what any of them had said, and there would be no moderator or "referee" of any kind involved. It might not be perfect, but it might be a whole lot better than what we have now. A series of such debates might whittle the field down pretty quickly, to where only a very few candidates are involved in the final one(s).
It seems that the whole world, and the Marxocrat Party, and their News Media, is always down on the greedy Capitalism of the United States, and how she needs to move to a more "charitable" and "merciful" system, like Socialism. Right.
But what almost no one seems to recognize is that we are not a Capitalist nation at all. We are Socialist. At least we are far more Socialist than we are Free Market. We stopped being a free market Capitalist nation in the Woodrow Wilson political moment. When he got the 16th Amendment ratified establishing a graduated income tax, and when he got the 17th Amendment ratified reducing the Senate to just another populist political body, and when he signed the Federal Reserve Act establishing the FED, we stopped being Capitalist. And it's been downhill since then.
Every time anyone figures out a new way round the increasingly strangling regulations and taxes, the increasingly Marxist government invents new regulations and taxes to strangle that new business venue. Look around. We do not have a free market. Everything is regulated or controlled by government, not private enterprise.
Because of Crony Capitalism, in which big companies "compete" for market share not by excellence of product or service, but by political favor and regulations and taxes that benefit them and hurt competition, we lean more to the Fascist side of the Marxist coin than to the Communist side. What's the difference? They're both Marxist.
We were only a Capitalist nation until the Woodrow Wilson Moment; and we became so incredibly successful in that short time frame that we are still richer, as a people, than most of the world.
But, just give Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, another minute or two.

The Purpose of this grouping of articles is to highlight the three incompatible geopolitical movements in global contention: American Constitutionalism, Marxism and Islam. And to give evidence to the insidious infiltration of Marxist and Islamic thought, and corrosive evil, into American Culture.
A fixed social moral code, born of religion, is what makes a unique, identifiable People, distinct from other Peoples. Distinct People of a common moral code make civil laws representing and reinforcing their common moral code, via Politics. When a distinctly moral People live within a distinct Political organization they form a distinct and identifiable Human Culture.
Truth is the only thing we can Unite on. Yet Real Truth Divides.
Truth Divides, because Truth Hurts. Any "Truth" that indiscriminately Unites is a False Truth.
Broken Communion with God ultimately causes the broken human community. Man is a social being, in need of community with others. Broken Communion is an unnatural disorder for man.

On entering (or avoiding) the Catholic American Discomfort Zone. Let's not talk about Religion or Politics today; it's confrontational and uncomfortable. Let's avoid the Discomfort Zone.
Unique, Distinct, Identifiable Human Culture = Religion + Politics. The Formula [Culture = Religion + Politics] is what makes a distinct, identifiable People a distinct and identifiable People.
The Formula [Culture=Religion+Politics] is Inviolate. Politics merely organize Human Culture around the predominant Religious beliefs of a distinct and identifiable People.
Whether the result means death or rebirth, the American Reset will be painful. America was born in Revolution. If the reset means rebirth, it will only come through re-revolution.

[Culture = Religion + Politics] is the inviolate formula of Civilization itself. Culture = Religion + Politics makes a unique, distinct, identifiable People. Take Religion (and religious morality) out of it, and the Culture disintegrates.

Crony-Catholicism? Really? The USCCB is advancing Obamunism? Say it ain't so, Joe! It's bad enough that we now have so many Marxified Bishops, but now they actually act against the faith?
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
