Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Propaganda Ministry Being Created

The Obama Administration has begun the creation of a new Propaganda Ministry. To do this, his administration is transforming the National Endowment for the Arts by using it to urge the arts community to creatively push administration policies. has reported that Yosi Sergant (now former) Communications Director for the NEA, and Buffy Wicks, Deputy Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement in a conference call in August urged various arts organizations to push Obama Administration policies. Within days several of those organizations began to push the Obama agenda:

On the audio of the phone conference, Buffy is quoted as saying:
“I just first of all want to thank everyone for being on the call and just a deep deep appreciation for all the work you all put into the campaign for the 2+ years we all worked together.”
“We won.”
“I’m actually in the White House and working towards furthering this agenda, this very aggressive agenda.”
“We’re going to come at you with some specific asks here.”
“I hope you guys are ready.”

Yosi Sergant says,
“I would encourage you to pick something, whether it’s health care, education, the environment, you know, there’s four key areas that the corporation has identified as the areas of service.”
“And then my ask would be to apply artistic, you know, your artistic creative communities utilities and bring them to the table.”
“Again, I’m really, really honored to be working with you; the National Endowment for the Arts is really honored.”
“You’re going to see a lot more of us in the next four and hopefully eight years.”

Additionally, Michael Skolnick, political director for hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons says,
“I’ve been asked by folks in the White House and folks in the NEA … we had the idea that I would help bring together the artist community…”
“…the Hope poster obviously is a great example, but it’s clear as an independent art community as artists and thinkers and tastemakers and marketers and visionaries that are on this call, the role that we played during the campaign for the president…”
“…the President has a clear arts agenda and has been very supportive of using art and supporting art in creative ways to talk about some issues that we face here in our country, but also to engage people. And I think all of us who are on this phone call, you know, were selected for a reason.”
“And so I’m hoping that through this group, and the goal of all this, and the goal of this phone call, is through this group we can create a stronger community amongst ourselves to get involved in things we’re passionate about as we did during the campaign. But to continue to get involved in those things, to support some of the President’s initiatives, but also to do things that we are passionate about and to push the President and push his administration…“

Then, within days, several of those groups began to agitate for the administration.
Three days after the conference call a coalition of arts groups, led by Americans for the Arts, a participant on the conference call per the meeting contact list and recipient of NEA grants, sent out a press release with the heading “Urgent Call to Congress for Health care Reform,” which called for the creation of “a health care reform bill that will create a public health insurance option.” Eleven days after the conference call, Rock the Vote, another participant on the call, announced a health care design contest. “We can’t stand by and listen to lies and deceit coming from those who are against reforming a broken system,” they stated in their announcement. “Enough is Enough. We need designs that tell the country YES WE CARE! Young people demand health care.”

Obviously we are seeing the formation of a new Executive Branch Department (i.e. Propaganda ministry from these defacto spokesmen). Because, within day those organizations began following their marching orders.

What happens when the next election arises, will the Propaganda Czar swing into action to demonize all those who oppose the will of The One? Is that when we get a Federal Detention Czar to detain those who vote against the will of The One?

Will America allow this to happen? Obviously the Elite Media hasn't reported on this. I doubt seriously they will. It fall upon those in the online media to expose this illegal attempt to subvert the constitutional process. Keep in mind that NAZI Germany had a propaganda ministry, as did the USSR. Communist China has one as does the Republic of Cuba as well as Venezuela. This is something that was never envisioned by the founding fathers. America does NOT need a government department who dispenses funds to artists in order to fund art that supports government policies.

Amen, Rich.

I did, however, send a crayon drawing of my butt to the White House with the slogan, "Kiss My Patriotic A**", but I haven't heard back from them as to if they're gonna float me some cash to use it or not.

Ah well. Win some, lose some.
