Five Types Of Looters You Must Prepare For

by: Survival Diva

It’s Survival Diva again with some food for thought about societal collapse; what to expect and who to look out for. It’s an important part of the puzzle when you’re one of the few prepared to survive the coming onslaught. Some guesstimate preppers make up only 5% of the populace, but it’s my belief it’s closer to 3% at best, and more likely to be 1-2%. Many give lip service to prepping and claim to be prepared when the truth is they’re still in the “thinking” stage.

They haven’t advanced to in-the-trenches preparedness that many need to do to get prepared faster, where dinners out, budget-draining vacations, and designer anything are put on the back-burner until the storage shelves are full, water has been stored, and must-have preparedness goods are crowding sheds, basements, or in a pinch; closets and under the bed.

To come out on the other side of a wide-spread crisis in one piece, even when you’re prepared, takes getting into the head of the majority of the population who are NOT prepared. If you’re successful, you’ll face, head-on, the darker side of humanity most of us would rather pretend doesn’t exist.

Yesterday I was given a small example. When purchasing another 20 buckets for food storage, a Home Depot employee kindly offered to help me load them into the back of my SUV. Looking at the 200 pounds of sugar and another 200 pounds of flour crowding the back—I’m planning to use it for barter when the time comes—he asked; “What’s with all the buckets and the baking stuff?” This was my cue to wake up another person who’ll be sorely disappointed when meals on wheels doesn’t come to their aid in a wide-spread emergency. Besides, I knew I could safely talk to him without worry of him showing up at my doorstep if things go south. I live 90 miles away and I pay with cash for my preparedness goods and NEVER use rewards cards, where my personal purchases are tracked.

So I told him I write about prepping and I practice what I preach. Our discussion revealed he had attempted to start prepping, yet every time he stored the items in the basement, his teenagers helped themselves to his emergency stash. I asked if he had a shed that could be padlocked to keep his prepping goods intact, which he did. His answer, however, was disappointing: “My wife would kill me if I put the bikes outside to store preparedness goods.”

I left the parking lot shaking my head in sadness with the realization this man represents the majority of people, including many reading this very article. They may have that gut-wrenching intuition that things aren’t quite right, and they should be getting ready, but they have become entrenched with today’s norms and are over-consumers with the belief the government will step in if things get really bad. Like this man, many would-be preppers just haven’t marshaled their strength to lock horns with loved ones, even when it’s for their own good, nor can they stomach being labeled paranoid.

Get Into The Heads of Those to Watch For

In a collapse, not all looters are created equally. There will be varying degrees of how far a person is willing to go to survive. But even the best, most honest of people will be desperate for food and water. It’s a good idea to consider who might be approaching your doorstep before trouble shows.

Stan, the Family Man: He has loved ones that he desperately wants to protect. He ignored the hassle of preparedness. He even ignored FEMA’s suggestion of storing three days worth of emergency food and water. Money has been tight once his hours were cut since the economic slow-down. He’d thought about selling the jet skis and investing in storage food, but it was just too depressing. Now a wide-spread emergency has decimated grocer’s shelves in a matter of hours. Water is scarce and there are rumors of many in the area getting sick after drinking non-purified water from a nearby lake. The toilet won’t flush, sewage has backed up in the tub and there is no electric. Communications are down and he and his family are without hope. The first two days, he’d held out hope that help would arrive. But it hasn’t and his family is hungry and thirsty and frightened. Stan has always paid his dues, and would normally never think about stealing from others. But, that was then. He must do whatever it takes to provide for his family. The cooking smells coming from across the hallway of his apartment building has set a plan in motion. Survival has come down to them or him…

* * *

Toni, the Prisoner: When the lights went out, security at the prison was compromised. Most of the jail guards left for home at first sign of trouble. Now, the tables are turned and Toni and several other inmates have escaped. Toni and his group are on foot, but that doesn’t present a problem because their rural location offers plenty of opportunities. The farmers in the area have fruits and vegetables ripe for the picking. Several in the vicinity raise horses. Now that he and the other inmates broke out of prison, Toni considers himself lucky; the problem of food and transportation is solved…once he and the five other inmates have overtaken the family they’ve targeted.

* * *

Scorpion, the Gang Member: Scorpion, a member of a major gang is, mad at life and knows he’s entitled to survive because he’s young and strong. He’s willing to do whatever it takes without remorse. He and his homeboys have plenty of firepower and ammunition: the tools of their trade. They can’t wait to take what they need, just for the sheer sport of it. And it’s proven to be as easy as stealing candy from a baby. Several home invasions produced more than enough food, water and medical supplies. What didn’t interest them was grabbed and sold on the black market to desperate customers. The best part is they didn’t even have to leave the city. There’s more than enough to keep the gang well fed. Along the way, they’ve picked up an arsenal. Ammo is now so plentiful, it’s moved past need and has been sold for more than what gold and silver is fetching. The few police combating the looting and killing don’t have the manpower to take down his gang, and they’re on a rampage.

* * *

John, the Tactically Trained: For the past two days, John has had to watch his neighbors go into meltdown. They’re without food and water, as is John. One of his neighbors is a diabetic with no way to get insulin. They can’t call their doctor—cell and land line phones haven’t worked for days. Plus, the roads are in complete gridlock. The gas stations ran out of fuel within 24-hours of the crisis and many frantic motorists trying to flee ran out of gas, or experienced car problems, leaving their vehicles to clog the roadways.

John feels for his neighbor, but he has loved ones. They are his number one priority and he’s run out of time. John and several of his hunting buddies have decided it’s time to search for survival goods, taking their ATV’s. John’s military training now comes in handy. As leader of the group, he knows to head outside the suburb he lives for the boonies where it’s more likely there will be plentiful food and water and preparedness goods. They’ve agreed not to hurt anyone, so long as they’re allowed to take what they need. John knows what to look for: the sound of a generator or lights shining through windows. This is his signal a homeowner is prepared. During the day his group listens for the tell-tale sounds of a generator, a chainsaw, or a motorized vehicle, which isn’t hard to do now that the grid’s down. For days, things have been eerily silent. At night, John and his hunting buddies look for the tell-tale glow of lights reflecting from windows. In no time, they have what they need and will return to this rural goldmine on an as-need basis.

* * *

Brenda, the Naysayer: Brenda laughed when her co-worker, Sarah, shared her prepping plans. Now, the streets are over-run with desperate folks. The stores have been looted. Grocers, sporting good stores and gun shops were the first to get hit. But there have been plenty of TV’s, computers and high-ticket electronic items pilfered, even though they’re no good to anyone at present. The family car has an empty gas tank, but she’s in good health and so is the rest of her family. It’s just blind luck Brenda knows where Sarah lives, and the awesome part is she isn’t far—only a couple of miles away. Her family is into bicycling, so the problem of transportation is solved; They’ll just zip past the gridlock, baring looters, that is. The rest of Brenda’s plan lies with the knowledge that Sarah is kindhearted.

She’ll put Brenda and her family up until order is restored, which from the looks of things could be a long time. Brenda and her husband throw what little they have in their pantry (what they can handle weight-wise, anyway) into backpacks and pillowcases. Next, they clear out the medicine cabinet. They tried to use their ATM card for cash just yesterday, so they wouldn’t show up empty-handed—they’d never want to be seen as free-loaders—but the grid is hopelessly crashed, so no luck there, and all businesses are closed, including the banks. But Brenda doesn’t necessarily see that as a deal-breaker. She did everything she could, other than fill her pantry and get preparedness goods. And besides, Brenda has two adorable kids…how can Sarah say no?

Will You Be A Victim?

Desperate families, prison inmates, gang-bangers and freeloaders will be out there during a full-on collapse. The first thing you want to do is to get prepared so that you aren’t one of them. Next, how you handle desperate people and whether you come out on the other side alive has a lot to do with planning beforehand. Here are some pointers. Hopefully, you have some of your own to share by commenting below:

- The “Vacant Home” strategy: Many people plan on making their home look unoccupied in an attempt to protect themselves from looters. In grid down, you don’t necessarily want to have your home appear vacant. The average person won’t risk getting shot when they believe a home is occupied. It’s better to keep them guessing, and that also includes NOT telegraphing your preparedness.

- You will be an instant target if you’re running a noisy a generator, or driving a vehicle, or using a chain saw when your area has drawn looters or worse. It sends a message: You’re prepared and you have goods they need! It’s best to forgo the obvious. Some generators are built to run quietly. Is yours? If not, when looters are in your area, use only tools that won’t draw as much attention like a tree-felling ax, and cease running a noisy generator until it’s safer to do so. Keep vehicles parked, and gas storage out of site. Some things that you can do are to add supplementary mufflers to your generator, build a sound dampening enclosure, build an underground sound dampening enclosure, and only run your generator during the noisiest parts of the day, if possible.

- Don’t light up your home in grid-down! Now is a good time to fit your windows with black-out curtains. Even using a piece of material that’s secured—possibly with duct tape, so light doesn’t escape and alert people outside, will do. Whatever you do, test, test, and test again. Test your black-out provisions now when there is plenty of ambient light and test them again if the grid goes down on moonless nights.

- Cooking odors will attract anyone with a growling stomach, including neighbors, looters and worse. Keep canned goods and MRE’s on hand for times when looting is rampant.

- You must have the means to defend yourself. Guns and ammo may be the pivotal deciding factor between who comes out ahead: Toni the prisoner or Scorpion the gang banger, or you and your loved ones. It will be necessary in times of unruliness, when people are frantic to survive, to patrol your home, whether it happens to be in the boonies or in the city. This, often times, requires a trusted group. It may become impossible to protect a location with just a husband and wife due to the heightened demands on your time that during normal times is not an issue. This is a separate post, however, because of all it entails. Look for the post soon!

- Either have stored water or a safe route to get it and keep a high-quality water purifier on hand. During a collapse, sanitation will go south. Never risk drinking non-purified water. (David’s Note: I plan on purifying any water that I have stored rather than relying on my container cleaning and water preserving skills to keep us safe.)

- Have a backup plan for toilet use and basic hygiene, as we talked about in this article:

- Put aside medical supplies. Should anyone in your family or group be inured, medical aid is unlikely to show during a crisis. We’ll talk about what you’ll need specifically in an upcoming post.

- Keep several ABC fire extinguishers that will handle all types of fires. Do not expect to be able to contact the fire department for help. (David’s note: We also keep a LARGE supply of baking soda, aloe, and other first aid items for burns. One of these items is anbesol…which is for teeth, but contains .9% lidocaine. Solarcaine is aloe and .5% lidocaine and it works well also. You can buy lidocaine cream without a prescription at a 5% concentration HERE

- NEVER depend upon land line and cell phones to work when a crisis strikes. If you doubt this, you only have to look at the Japan tsunami, or Haiti, or Katrina. Have a back-up plan, always—which we’ll be covering here in an upcoming post. (David’s note: Never underestimate the power of randomness in a large scale disaster. On 9/11 in NYC, the network that Blackberries operated on was the only one that was reliable. After Katrina, friends doing security contracting weren’t able to use cell phones, but were able to use landline phones even though the water was 6 feet deep on the ground floor and the cables were under water. In Hawaii, the night that the earthquake hit Japan and a tsunami was expected to hit Hawaii, cell phone circuits were busy, but I was still able to email, tweet, post updates, and surf the web over my data connection on the same phone that couldn’t make a call.)

- When possible, a large dog is worth considering. It’s long been known by police that a large, serious-sounding dog will stop the bad guy. Problem is, he’ll just look for easier targets. You must provide for their survival, just as you have your loved ones, which will mean plenty of dog food. In my book, Survival: Prepare Before Disaster Strikes, I shared a work-around for those who can’t keep a dog. Just having a beat-up, large dog collar, worn water and food bowls, and a heavy duty chain trailing on the ground WILL have the bad guy thinking twice about attacking your home. After reading this section, a wise-cracking Alaskan friend suggested a chewed up moose leg.

- Divide and avoid being conquered. Split up your survival goods in as many ways as are practical for you. Some people will have more options than others, depending on their living situation and how willing they are to hide things in places that many would consider to be completely crazy. Splitting up and hiding your survival goods will allow you to sacrifice stashes if necessary without giving up everything.

* * *

Most of us, if given the opportunity, would choose to help others, and many preppers who can afford to have put aside extra canned goods to help others. But there is a world of difference between helping someone in need and becoming a victim of someone who plans to steal your preparedness goods with force. It’s important to agree amongst family or group members how you will address likely scenarios, so if the time comes, you’ll be able to react as a cohesive group. Hesitation can kill you!

So, What are your plans to survive in the midst of bedlam?

"Shrinking AARP
by: Cyndy Miller

AARP's Fall from Grace

This letter was sent to Mr. Rand who is the Executive Director of AARP.

Dear Mr. Rand,

Recently you sent us a letter encouraging us to renew our lapsed membership in AARP by the requested date. This isn't what you were looking for, but it's is the most honest response I can give you. Our coverage gap is a microscopic symptom of the real problem, a deepening lack of faith. While we have proudly maintained our membership for years and long admired the AARP goals and principles, regrettably, we can no longer endorse its abdication of our values. Your letter stated that we can count on AARP to speak up for our rights, yet the voice we hear is not ours.

Your offer of being kept up to date on important issues through DIVIDED WE FAIL presents neither an impartial view nor the one we have come to embrace. We do believe that when two parties agree all the time on everything presented to them, one is probably not necessary. But, when the opinions and long term goals are diametrically opposed, the divorce is imminent. This is the philosophy which spawned our 200 years of government.

Once upon a time, we looked forward to being part of the senior demographic. We also looked to AARP to provide certain benefits and give our voice a power we could not possibly hope to achieve on our own. AARP once gave us a sense of belonging which we no longer enjoy. The Socialist politics practiced by the Obama Regime and empowered by AARP serves only to raise the blood pressure my medical insurance strives to contain. Clearly a conflict of interest there! We do not understand the AARP posture, feel greatly betrayed by the guiding forces that we expected to map out our senior years and leave your ranks with a great sense of regret. We mitigate that disappointment with the relief of knowing that we are not contributing to the problem anymore by renewing our membership. There are numerous other organizations which offer discounts without threatening our way of life or offending our sensibilities and values.

This Obama Regime scares the living daylights out of us. Not just for ourselves, but for our proud and bloodstained heritage. But more importantly for our children and grandchildren. Washington has rendered Soylent Green a prophetic cautionary tale rather than a nonfiction scare tactic. I have never endorsed any militant or radical groups, yet now I find myself listening to them. I don't have to agree with them to appreciate the fear which birthed their existence. Their borderline insanity presents little more than a balance to the voice of the Socialist Mindset in power. Perhaps I became American by a great stroke of luck in some cosmic uterine lottery, but in my adulthood I CHOOSE to embrace it and nurture the freedoms it represents as well as the responsibilities.

Your website generously offers us the opportunity to receive all communication in Spanish. ARE YOU KIDDING??? The illegal perpetrators have broken into our 'house', invaded our home without invitation or consent. The President insists we keep these illegal perpetrators in comfort and learn the perpetrator's language so we can communicate our reluctant welcome to them. I DON'T choose to welcome them, to support them, to educate them, to medicate them, or to pay for their food or clothing. American home invaders get arrested. Please explain to me why foreign lawbreakers can enjoy privileges on American soil that Americans do not get? Why do some immigrants have to play the game to be welcomed and others only have to break and enter to be welcomed?

We travel for a living. Walt hauls horses all over this great country, averaging over 10,000 miles a month when he is out there. He meets more people than a politician on caffeine overdose. Of all the many good folks he enjoyed on this last 10,000 miles, this trip yielded only ONE supporter of the current Regime. One of us is out of touch with mainstream America. Since our poll is conducted without funding, I have more faith in it than ones that are driven by a need to yield AMNESTY (aka-make voters out of the foreign lawbreakers so they can vote to continue the government's free handouts). This addition of 10 to 20 million voters who then will vote to continue Socialism will OVERWHELM our votes to control the government's free handouts. It is a "slippery slope" we must not embark on!

As Margret Thatcher (former Prime Minister of Great Britain) once said "Socialism is GREAT - UNTIL you run out of other people's money".

We have decided to forward this to everyone on our mailing list, and will encourage them to do the same. With several hundred in my address book, I have every faith that the eventual exponential factor will make a credible statement to you. I am disappointed as all getout! I am more scared than I have ever been in my entire life! I am ANGRY! I am MAD as hell, and I'm NOT gonna take it anymore!

Walt & Cyndy Miller

"CIVIL WAR HAS BEGUN: AMERICA IS FATALLY DECEIVED
by: Greg Evensen

via: NewsWithViews.com
April 11, 2012

The war of northern aggression began forming in the 1840’s as the government even then, moved further and further away from a constitutional republic. Vitriolic debate about growing, indifferent central taxation coursed through the halls of Congress in the 1850’s. Dire threats were taking shape by 1858, and there was no turning back by 1860. For those who understand our Republic and the efforts to sustain freedom, in spite of all out war waged upon it then and since the end of the last internal struggle, the federal economic/banking/political/internationalist/police state has had but one goal. That is, the internal destruction of the sovereign states and the imposition of a socialist government tyranny under the ongoing protection of the federal court system and the threat of military intervention to achieve the final dark victory against the American people.

Mirroring the run up time frame to our first “civil war” (regardless of your position) the past 100 years at a minimum, have witnessed the attainment of expansionist socialist government benchmarks in every area of public life. As a result, we are now hovering at the doorstep of open warfare with government and virtually all government agencies.

I am convinced that “evolution” does exist, only not in the theory that you would expect. The fact is that government in general has evolved from a modest and necessary central coordinating point between the outside world and the state governments into a world crushing behemoth that knows no bounds, nor restraint, except in its devouring of more rights, freedoms, money, resources and common sense with every move it makes. Being the ravenous beast it has become, there is no apparent way to slow or stop it, short of its destruction. Those who have raised and fed the beast simply shove more “food” its way with an outcome predictable and fatal to those living with it.

Home and church schooling has evolved into values killing public education. Rational, theoretical universities have become radical beds of dark indoctrination that have mutated into world governance training centers led by amoral communist adherents producing evil minions like Bill Ayers, Eric Holder, and Barack Obama. Family physicians have evolved into factory pharmacy shills dancing on puppet strings to the insurance companies. Community banks have evolved into enforcers for the Federal Reserve’s nation killing currency manipulation. Churches are “tax-exempt” wastelands to pastoral Biblical liars and denominational slick programming, preaching everything socially unimportant yet void of truth about the only Savior of mankind, Jesus Christ.

Is there a way to truly measure how far we have come in America towards complete and utter national ruin? Perhaps this quote will give you some measure of the void that stands between ALL of us and those who “govern” us at this moment.

“I will not allow my oppressors to dictate to me the means of my resistance.” (Credit to follow shortly) A prisoner of war, perhaps? A former French defender from Nazi occupied Europe? A Chinese dissident?

A Russian peasant from Stalin’s Soviet dream state? Before I give you the source, could you imagine yourself in a national catastrophe so great that you were forced to adopt this position so that the armed legions swarming through the country would have no doubt recognizing your iron clad resolve? Have you embraced this level of ABSOLUTE resistance to what is now unfolding in the United States of America? We will either choose this day, life and the struggle that we must now endure for our failure to safeguard freedom in our homes, churches, schools and government, or our only choice will be to count the moments before we attain our eternal life in either Heaven or Hell. The ultimate final breakdown of the two options left to us. Life----or death.

As you leave our historical Republic in the pages of history, let’s conduct an exit interview and see where you stand before becoming a death state citizen.

PART ONE:
Do you excuse every human indignity government agencies create?

Do you laugh at and imitate immoral conduct where you see it?

Do you agree with comedians who demean Christian women or Christian ideals?

Do you laugh at serious Christian positions made to look bad by the subversive American Civil Liberties Union or Homeland Security partner the communist leaning Southern Poverty Law Center?

Do you accept Muslim extremism in schools or on city streets because “it is only fair” and the “Christian” thing to do, while supporting atheist haters that demand an end to all things edifying Jesus?

Does the evil now observable in our nation through the FBI surveillance programs, FDA tyranny in poisoned food production, killer vaccinations, USDA SWAT teams invading natural product farms and overseeing GMO fields, police developing and using crowd dispersing microwave weapons, sonic disruptors, and compliance light weapons, chemical trails in our skies, staffing advertisements for internment camps, and abortion as a procedure so comfortable we consider it a health benefit, alarm you at all?

Did you ever reach a point where you could clearly see that the people in America who warned you of this insidious slide in to an ongoing climate of deceit, distraction, disinterest in anything that did not entertain you, and destructive to all moral and civic actions, was happening to you?

Did you decide that self-deception was favorable to knowing the truth?

PART TWO:
Death has become the symbol of America and our national flag has become the “Jolly Roger” flag of pirate days, the skull and crossbones. We may not manufacture anything anymore, but we can wage warfare like real professionals. Death is our trademark if you provide abortion, death comes from our food, death comes from our skies, death is found in perverted sexual activities, death is growing in our fields, death is crawling the unclean floors of our hospitals, death is the sweetener in soft drinks, death in smoking, death in dietary obesity, death to border security, death is found in illicit drugs, death by drones, death by euthanasia, death by Tasar, death by cops if you move wrong, death by government edict, and of course it all results in the death of freedom, common sense, morality, responsibility, accountability, liberty, a noble personal destiny, and death ultimately to your soul.

All of the above are examples of governmental, regulatory, military action, police enforcement, corporate policy, and regulatory sanctioned “lawful” death. ----When law becomes evil and tyrannical, then revolution becomes our duty.

The man who is attributed with the quote I gave is a person I neither hold in any regard nor respect. His life reflected huge amounts of hypocrisy, deceit and subversive links. However, the quote reflects an enduring reality regardless of the point of originality. Have we come full circle……perhaps?

---------Martin Luther King is the reputed author.

King was regarded as a “leader” in a cultural struggle that took on the status quo within the “government.” It resonated because people felt oppression and knew instinctively that it was wrong. What happened?

Why was it wrong then, yet we tolerate that oppression today not as a race of people, but as an entire nation?

It is in part because we had no entitlement culture in America in 1957? People were not receiving subsidies for behavior. They knew that government actions were wrong and had to change. As production, medicine and government were all reflective of basic expansion that refined life without defining it even then, we were on a dangerous slope. “Innocent growth” in all venues of American life opened up new possibilities for the exact kinds of change that Barack Obama and Congress sought to use to rule, control and buy the population masses and city cultures without limitation. The more that we desired the more we received as long as Washington was granted the “right” to regulate us into “get the government goodies” chains right up to the slamming of the steel door of our national prison.

You have elected the “Prince of Death” in the White House and he is killing off our liberties. You are “served” by the Congress of Extermination. It is the end of self-government as we have known it. Democrat, Republican, Independent, it makes no difference. This game has a pre-planned deadly end that will be played to the very last---UNLESS---the current “Pre-Civil War” debate is now engaged in earnest with no nice guy attitude for those engaged in its rhetoric. The time for decisive action is immediate. The need for men and women of valor to conduct this side of the struggle is great. A handful of protestors will only be arrested, charged and put away. Huge numbers in the streets as in 1960, with the “We Shall Overcome” efforts, are as critical now as they were then, only ALL Americans are in this struggle and have a stake in its outcome. Until you see it as that, then no amount of justification or encouragement will make any difference at all.

We either win this one together and we do it now before any more Defense Authorization Act measures are enacted, or Presidential Executive Orders are renewed claiming autocratic authority over everything is signed making all resistance criminal or we lose. Even discussing it will be a crime.

Then, no matter what you think, the only option will be open warfare and much worse than in 1861. Time is almost gone. Forcing an American renewal will not happen in the corrupted courts nor in a shameless complicit congress. It must now happen in the gymnasiums, parks, ball fields and can I hope---the church sanctuaries of America with a revised “Black Robed Regiment?”

Jobzilla
by: Tim Nerenz, Ph.D

Let’s play “Who wants to be a CEO?” Ok, you are about to create or save a $50,000 job just to claim that new $780 one-time payroll tax credit when the Department of Justice comes blasting into your office with guns drawn and confiscates all your raw materials.

Do you a) thank the President for his bold leadership in job creation, b) blame the Tea Party for foiling his perfect and most wonderful vision of our nation, or c) move your plant to another country where they need warrants to seize your property. Ding ding ding ding ding ding!

Let’s stay with No-Brainers for $400, Alex. Ok, you are about ready to place orders for a few million dollars of new capital equipment that you don’t even need just to take advantage of the President’s one-time accelerated depreciation rule when the NLRB forces you to abandon the billion-dollar plant you just built in South Carolina and move the work to Washington state and overpay union guys who go on strike a lot.

Do you a) praise Mr. Obama for tinkering with an obscure accounting rule in order to benefit Wall Street banks, b) blame the Republicans for not doing it first, or c) build your next plant in a country where mobbed-up union bosses don’t threaten to “take you out” when they welcome the President to their stage. Ding ding ding ding ding ding!

Bonus Round: You are trying to decide where to site a new industrial facility that will employ thousands when you learn that EPA has passed arbitrary rules that will shut down over 20 power plants, double your energy costs, and cause rationing of electricity. Do you, a) salute the President for his commitment to his donors’ green job subsidies, b) blame George W. Bush for global warming, or c) build your plant in Brazil where they will sell you all the energy you need at low costs. Congratulations – you just won an all-expense-paid trip to Sao Paulo!

I must confess I did not watch the President’s speech last night, I just read a transcript this morning. While he was putting lipstick on his recycled 2009 stimulus pig, I was driving home from a meeting with Wisconsin Governor Walker at one of our plants up north. What a contrast.

President Obama told us (again) what Congress needed to do to create jobs, as if they could; Governor Walker asked us how we create jobs in our company. The President dictated incentives and demanded we hire more workers; the Governor asked us what government could do that might matter to us.

President Obama encouraged everyone (again) to go to college. We talked with Governor Walker about the shortage of skilled trades and technicians and the high-paying jobs that we can’t fill for lack of qualified candidates. I learned that most students at Wisconsin’s two-year technical colleges have four-year degrees (and a mountain of student loan debt) in fields where there is no demand.

President Obama promised to plug school budgets and increase teacher pay for a year (again); Governor Walker asked us what Wisconsin students need to learn in school to be employable. The President lectured a room full of professional politicians; the Governor took questions from our plant employees – and he answered them.

Our Governor came to learn; our President hasn’t learned a thing.

The President’s words don’t really matter anymore, because his actions are pure Jobzilla. Stomp – Obamacare. Stomp - repeal of the Bush tax cuts. Stomp – union card check by executive order. Stomp – drilling ban. Stomp – EPA edicts. Stomp – $1.4 trillion deficit.

But here he goes again with the roads, bridges, and schools shtick - $150 billion to rebuild our infrastructure after he just threw $800 billion down that rat hole with nary a single new road, bridge, or school to show for it. Here’s a clue: 15 million unemployed Americans aren’t going back to work on roads unless President Jobzilla has 15 million surplus CAT D7 bulldozers stored with the cheese in those government warehouses of his.

And am I the only one that sees pure hypocrisy in the President’s “payroll tax holiday”? You realize, I hope, that the payroll tax he is talking about is your Social Security withholding. So not only are you contributing less, which might reduce the amount of benefit you will receive when you retire, but your “holiday” will be taxed at ordinary income rates come the end of the year.

Not to mention that those payroll taxes are what funds Social Security, an already broken system that Republican Rick Perry correctly called a “Ponzi scheme” in Wednesday’s debate. That “tax holiday” money was supposed to go into the Social Security Trust Fund, the pot of money they keep saying is really there for you even though they spent it all on other stuff like teleprompters and tour busses from Canada.

The President just proposed to defund Social Security by 50% and not one liberal went hysterical on him. Not one drum, not one “war on the middle class”, and nothing but gurgling coos from the infants at MSNBC. If a libertarian did that (or Paul Ryan) all hell would break loose. And how did Social Security get so flush with cash all of a sudden that President Obama can afford to defund it for a whole year? A month ago, we didn’t even have enough money to cut checks to recipients without raising the debt ceiling and borrowing more money – remember all the wheelchairs going over the cliff on August 3?

I’m not sure if our Jobzilla President even knows how any of this stuff actually works. The advance hype for his big speech said Mr. Obama would solve our jobs problem with over $400 billion of “tax cuts and spending increases that would be paid for by deficit reduction.” Three letters: W, T, and you-pick-em. That statement would need a lot of editing just to be upgraded to stupid.

Here is what is so sad: someone with a college degree wrote that talking point, dozens of people with college degrees approved it, and hundreds of journalists and editors with college degrees printed it. And our President thinks even more people should go to college.

I think less people should go to college and more people should learn to drive bulldozers. And build them and design them and service them and make parts for them, and mine the iron and make the steel and drive the trucks and drill the oil wells and refine the diesel fuel and build ships and nuclear power plants and windmills and appliances and foundries and factories and all the cranes and machine tools to fill them up.

The only jobs plan we need is to get the government off our back so we can do all those things here again. That will put 15 million Americans back to work - for real.

For the First Time in My Adult Life
By: Arnold Ahlert

via: Jewish World Review

June 02, 2011

First, a disclaimer: this is not an op-ed column in the traditional sense. Call it more of a feeling. With a nod to Michelle Obama, for the first time in my adult life, I'm beginning to believe that government is my enemy. Not a nuisance, nor a necessary evil, but a conglomeration of self-absorbed, self-interested people working directly against the interests of the American public. People who, if Americans ever got the courage to openly rebel, would instinctively seal off Washington, D.C., rather than seriously address the source of the peoples' discontent.

Americans are being subjected to the most lawless president and administration in the history of the nation. Can't a get law through Congress? Screw Congress, the president will issue an executive decree and have it carried out by an agency, cabinet official or an unelected czar. He'll have his tax-cheat Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner, take to the airwaves and literally blackmail the entire nation, telling Americans that if this gangster government can't raise the debt ceiling without any pre-conditions, they'll trash the entire economy as payback. Why? So all of this administration's crony-capitalist Wall Street and banker buddies can keep making money hand over fist, without having to share it with Main Street America. So they can continue being immunized from the consequences of their momentously greedy and stupid behavior, the single worst example of which was bringing the entire world's economy to its knees based on a single, ridiculous premise:

Real estate only moves up, not down.

As for QE2, which is now coming to an end, even as QE3is being contemplated, how many Americans really know what "quantitative easing" really is? Here's what it really is: America is printing money to buy its own debt. This keeps interest rates low, as anyone else we would borrow money from would want reasonable assurance, aka interest, that the most profligate nation in the history of the world won't leave them hanging. Low interest rates — as in zero, currently — allow the banks to borrow money for nothing, and artificially props up the stock market.

What does it do for small businesses who still can't borrow, and ordinary Americans who want to save money, but can't get more than two percent interest in anything other than the stock market? Not a damn thing good. But as many Americans are discovering, trashing the dollar is causing energy prices to "skyrocket," just like this president and his administration wants them to, so he can wean us off fossil fuels. Yet it's also causing food prices to skyrocket.

Are we being weaning off of eating too?

Pick an arena, any arena, and eventually the administration's corruptive nature rears its head. Health care? The administration picks waiver "winners" and non-waiver "losers." The Justice Department? U.S. Attorney General Eric "My People" Holder will investigate — or not investigate — whomever he wants, irrespective of impartiality. National defense? The administration will bleed American soldiers dry, making them fight endless and politically correct wars with one hand tied behind their backs, attempting to win the hearts and minds of people who couldn't care less.

Foreign policy? Obama will spend hundreds of millions of dollars community organizing a Libyan opposition we know nothing about, even as he thumbs his nose at the War Powers Act of 1973 requiring Congressional approval for military operations which exceed 60 days. And he and his Democratic cohorts will sell Israel down the river, even as clueless DNC head, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz demands that Republicans "pledge to refrain" from bringing it up during the 2012 election campaign.

A sidebar: Debbie topped herself yesterday, saying Republicans believe illegal immigration "should be a crime." Does a movie entitled "Debbie Does Demagoguery" have a nice ring to it?

This administration deliberately plays Americans off one another for the purpose of creating resentment and envy. The moochers and the slackers are told nothing is their own fault, that they shouldn't have to pay a nickel for America's upkeep, and that the only thing keeping them down is the free-market capitalist system. The genuine wealth creators (not the crony capitalists) are told they're not paying their "fair share," even as they already pay the lion's share of taxes — and even as those telling them to do so are the most irresponsible stewards of American finances the country has ever known. The middle class? They're told we're in an economic recovery, even as housing continues to crater, they can't find jobs, and the cost of everything keeps going up.

And above it all, we have a mainstream media so corrupt, and so willing to get on their knees for progressive ideology that virtually every story they produce can be whittled down to one idea:

Who are you going to believe, us — or your own lying eyes?

At what point does one see those who would purposefully bring this country to its knees, not as political opponents, but as genuine enemies of the nation? What is one to make of those who deliberately would turn millions of Americans into wards of the state in order to ensure their political loyalty? What is one to make of an administration that continues to allow millions of illegals to flow into America, even as they sue those who would try to prevent it? What are we to make of an administration that tells us certain entities are "too big too fail," and that a government takeover is the only remedy for their unconscionable excesses?

Republicans are far from blameless. They have gone from irresponsible stewards of the nation's finances, to running a pathetic candidate for president in 2008, to becoming semi-enablers of the nation's demise. When the most strident "Republican" presidential candidate to date has been an ego-inflated blowhard with bad hair, that is a testament to Republican timidity.

The 2012 election is the most important one in modern history, and someone had better emerge from the ranks who is able to articulate that reality. Someone willing to call out this socialist/marxist president and his crony capitalist, gangster government for exactly what they are — policy by damnable policy. Someone willing to not only withstand a media as determined to destroy them as the president and his administration is, but dish it right back to both in no uncertain terms. A man or woman with the smarts to realize that it's all a play for the independents who broke for Obama in 2008.

A warrior, not a wimp.

The Founding Fathers were smart enough to realize that no government can, or should be, loved. But I'd bet dollars to doughnuts there are more and more people like me out there who are feeling more than just a bit alienated from their elected representatives. Self-interest hacks who, day in and day out, are making a mockery of our nation.

John Quincy Adams,
Secretary of State 1821
An exert from his speech to the House of Representatives on Independence Day

“America, with the same voice which spoke herself into existence as a nation, proclaimed to mankind the inextinguishable rights of human nature, and the only lawful foundations of government. America, in the assembly of nations, since her admission among them, has invariably, though often fruitlessly, held forth to them the hand of honest friendship, of equal freedom, of generous reciprocity. She has uniformly spoken among them, though often to heedless and often to disdainful ears, the language of equal liberty, of equal justice, and of equal rights.

She has, in the lapse of nearly half a century, without a single exception, respected the independence of other nations while asserting and maintaining her own.

She has abstained from interference in the concerns of others, even when conflict has been for principles to which she clings, as to the last vital drop that visits the heart.

She has seen that probably for centuries to come, all the contests of that Aceldama the European world, will be contests of inveterate power, and emerging right.

Wherever the standard of freedom and Independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will her heart, her benedictions and her prayers be.

But she goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy.

She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all.

She is the champion and vindicator only of her own.

She will commend the general cause by the countenance of her voice, and the benignant sympathy of her example.

She well knows that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication, in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy, and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standard of freedom.

Egypt and Outside Interference
By: Eleora

Feb. 01, 2011

"Democratic Revolution...?" Actually, it is beginning to stink to high heaven of outside interference of the worst kind.

Check it out:


By: Kristinn Taylor and Andrea Shea King
The Radio Patriot

As the cliche goes, there are no coincidences in politics. Obama fundraiser group Code Pink just happened to have arrived in Cairo last week for the group’s ninth visit there in two years as part of its campaign to undermine the Mubarak government and help Hamas, the terrorist group that controls Gaza.

Code Pink and the media are trying to portray the leftist group’s “sudden” appearance in Cairo Wednesday as an act of courageous support for a democratic revolution. Nothing could be further from the truth.


Read more:

And, a blast from the past...

We know that the Muslim Brotherhood supports the uprising in Egypt. The Obama administration does as well. Based on the release of a secret document, it’s been learned that the United States government supported the April 6 Youth Movement – a group that played a key role in the uprising – in the form of a summit in Washington, D.C. That summit took place from December 3-5, 2008. We also know that Bill Ayers and Bernandine Dohrn were in Cairo a little more than one year later, engaging in protests while attempting to show solidarity with Hamas by entering Gaza with Egyptian protesters.

According to Dohrn, both she and Ayers were detained at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo. They, along with Code Pink, weren’t permitted to assemble the mass of people they had hoped would join them in their march into Gaza but were able to round up a few with begrudging approval from the Mubarak administration. Waiting for them with open arms was former Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh.

Barack Obama and Bill Ayers had a significant relationship in the 1990’s, despite the president’s claim to the contrary. Sharing a business address for three years and working with millions of dollars together necessarily debunks the claim that Ayers was little more than “a guy who lives in my neighborhood.” We also know that Ayers is an avowed Marxist.

Another group Ayers and Dohrn support is the Free Gaza Movement. They – along with Code Pink founder Jodie Evans – were instrumental in organizing it. That group is credited with launching the flotilla in the spring of 2010 designed to break Israel’s blockade of Gaza.

It looks like O's leftist radicals friends / associates are stirring the pot in Egypt.

Following Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's announcement that he would step down from office in September, President Obama rejected the Egyptian leader's timetable and called for an immediate transition to a new government in advance of fall elections.

"Change must take place," Obama said in remarks Tuesday evening at the White House. "My belief is that an orderly transition must be meaningful, it must be peaceful, and it must begin now."

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD'S "GENERAL STRATEGIC GOAL"
FOR NORTH AMERICA

By: DiscoverTheNetworks.org
Feb. 01, 2011

In July 2007, seven key leaders of an Islamic charity known as the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) went on trial for charges that they had: (a) provided "material support and resources" to a foreign terrorist organization (namely Hamas); (b) engaged in money laundering; and (c) breached the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, which prohibits transactions that threaten American national security. Along with the seven named defendants, the U.S. government released a list of approximately 300 "unindicted co-conspirators" and "joint venturers." During the course of the HLF trial, many incriminating documents were entered into evidence. Perhaps the most significant of these was "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America," by the Muslim Brotherhood operative Mohamed Akram.

Written sometime in 1987 but not formally published until May 22, 1991, this 18-page document listed the Brotherhood’s 29 likeminded "organizations of our friends" that shared the common goal of dismantling American institutions and turning the U.S. into a Muslim nation. These "friends" were identified by Akram and the Brotherhood as groups that could help convince Muslims "that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands ... so that ... God's religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions."

Akram was well aware that in the U.S., it would be extremely difficult to promote Islam by means of terror attacks. Thus the “grand jihad” that he and his Brotherhood comrades envisioned was not a violent one involving bombings and shootings, but rather a stealth (or “soft”) jihad aiming to impose Islamic law (Sharia) over every region of the earth by incremental, non-confrontational means, such as working to “expand the observant Muslim base”; to “unif[y] and direc[t] Muslims' efforts”; and to “present Islam as a civilization alternative.” At its heart, Akram's document details a plan to conquer and Islamize the United States – not as an ultimate objective, but merely as a stepping stone toward the larger goal of one day creating “the global Islamic state.”

In line with this objective, Akram and the Brotherhood resolved to "settle" Islam and the Islamic movement within the United States, so that the Muslim religion could be "enabled within the souls, minds and the lives of the people of the country.” Akram explained that this could be accomplished “through the establishment of firmly-rooted organizations on whose bases civilization, structure and testimony are built.” He urged Muslim leaders to make “a shift from the collision mentality to the absorption mentality,” meaning that they should abandon any tactics involving defiance or confrontation, and seek instead to implant into the larger society a host of seemingly benign Islamic groups with ostensibly unobjectionable motives; once those groups had gained a measure of public acceptance, they would be in a position to more effectively promote societal transformation by the old Communist technique of “boring from within.”

“The heart and the core” of this strategy, said Akram, was contingent upon these groups' ability to develop “a mastery of the art of 'coalitions.'” That is, by working synergistically they could complement, augment, and amplify one another's efforts. Added Akram: “The big challenge that is ahead of us is how to turn these seeds or 'scattered' elements into comprehensive, stable, 'settled' organizations that are connected with our Movement and which fly in our orbit and take orders from our guidance.” The ultimate objective was not only an enlarged Muslim presence, p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }but also implementation of the Brotherhood objectives of transforming pluralistic societies, particularly America, into Islamic states, and sweeping away Western notions of legal equality, freedom of conscience, freedom of religion, and freedom of speech.

Akram and the Brotherhood understood that in order to succeed in this endeavor, they needed to appeal to different strata of the American population in different ways; that whereas some people could be influenced by messages delivered from a religious perspective, others would be more responsive to messages delivered by educators, or bankers, or political figures, or journalists, etc. Thus, Akram's blueprint for the advancement of the Islamic movement stressed the need to form a coalition of groups coming from the worlds of education; religious proselytization; political activism; audio and video production; print media; banking and finance; the physical sciences; the social sciences; professional and business networking; cultural affairs; the publishing and distribution of books; children and teenagers; women's rights; vocational concerns; and jurisprudence.

By promoting the Islamic movement on such a wide variety of fronts, the Brotherhood and its allies could multiply exponentially their influence. Toward that end, the Akram/Brotherhood “Explanatory Memorandum” named the following 29 groups as the organizations they believed could collaborate effectively to destroy America from within – “if they all march according to one plan”:

Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)

ISNA Fiqh Committee (now known as the Fiqh Council of North America)

ISNA Political Awareness Committee

Muslim Youth of North America

Muslim Students Association of the U.S. and Canada

False accusations leave little room for negotiation
by: bkt
Jan. 9, 2011

The shooter yesterday was a mentally disturbed person who embraced some ideas from the left and some from the right. He tried to kill a Democrat congresswoman who embraces some ideas from the left and some from the right.

The circumstances suggest to me this was a pointless, pseudo-random attack. It may be the shooter wanted to hit a politician and Gifford happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. It may be that her views on specific issues and his were diametrically opposed, but that seems a stretch to presume.

The motive for his shooting is far less important than what those on the left have done in the wake of the shooting.

What many on the left have done, including the father of the shot congresswoman and a sheriff in the area where the shooting took place, is demonize her political opponents and outright accuse them of murder and attempted assassination. We have heard from Paul Krugman, Nobel laureate in economics, spout off about how the right is to blame, from Keith Olberman, left-leaning pundit, demeaning the right, Paul Helmke of the Brady Campaign clamoring for more strict firearms control, Jane Fonda blaming everyone on the right she can think of, and others...all of whom ignore the immediate issue of death and injury and instead turn a very real tragedy into an issue of political contention. To them, this shooting offers them a political advantage.

On the surface, we can ignore these people and their comments as short-sighted and idiotic. Except, they'll be back tomorrow with their polemic rants furthering their agendas. Over and over. Year after year. And they know that. They know that whatever stupid nonsense they say today will not be ridiculed or questioned by the press, and they will have injected their baseless poison into the system with impunity.

What this tragic issue shows is that rational discourse and the quest for the truth is dead, at least between the political left and right in this country. That is very important. What if a higher-level assassination had taken place? What if the left or right were able to foment violent fury in their followers by accusing the assassin of being from the other side? Whether or not the assassin was from the other side doesn't matter; no one will listen past the point of hearing "he was one of the bad guys!" -- all logic goes out the window, and it's pure rage from that moment on. It doesn't matter if one side makes a false accusation easily proved false by the other side; no one will be listening.

That is what we should all be aware of and wary of.

This is a perfect example of what I mean.


We can’t say we weren’t warned about Arizona shooting tragedy
We cannot walk away from this one. We cannot blame one nutjob for the shooting of 19 people Saturday in Tucson, Ariz., and wash our hands of it. We cannot pretend that this is only about him and not about us. Worst of all, we cannot say we were not warned.

For more than two years, sensible people have been pleading with their fellow Americans to tone down the rhetoric, to quit with the demonizing, to end the fear-mongering. In what kind of country, the sensible people asked, do political leaders across the board not condemn a sign at a rally that reads: “We left our guns at home — this time”? In what kind of country do people show up at presidential speeches with guns on their hips? In what kind of a country do callers to radio shows routinely smear those with whom they disagree — beginning with our president — as “traitors” and “un-American,” while pandering hosts say only, “Thanks for the call.”

If we continue this way, the sensible people warned, something will happen. And now something has happened.

U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, an Arizona Democrat, was meeting with constituents outside a supermarket Saturday — a “Congress on Your Corner” event — when a young man walked up, aimed a gun at her head and started shooting. As we wrote this, Giffords was fighting for her life in a Tucson hospital. Six people were dead. Twelve others were wounded.

What drove the killer, who police say might have had an accomplice? Was it the reckless rhetoric of our times? As of yet, we don’t know. Maybe, though improbably, politics had nothing to do with this. Only in time will we know if the killer was among those who threatened Giffords with physical harm last year when she voted in favor of President Obama’s health-care reforms. We may never know whether he was the one who shattered the windows of her Tucson office. And it’s entirely possible that he was not among those — the many — who threatened her with death after she spoke out against Arizona’s harsh new immigration law. But would any intelligent person be surprised to learn otherwise?

The safe observation for us to make now — you will hear it from others all week — is that the angry and irresponsible talk that might lead an unhinged person to pick up a gun is common across the political landscape, from right to left. But that simply is not true. Overwhelmingly today, the fear-mongering and demonizing flow from the right, aided and abetted by cable TV and talk-radio hosts. They may represent only the irresponsible fringe of conservatism in America, but they are drowning out the thoughtful voices of the vast majority of conservatives.

Giffords, as she showed by meeting constituents outside that supermarket, dared to believe that Americans can disagree with each other without turning on each other. Maybe that was a mistake.

Where to begin....

When the left talked openly about assassinating President Bush, that was OK. It got a pass from the media and the leftist elite. When Hillary Clinton said during the Bush years: "I'm sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration", she was applauded. Today, when those who disagree with Obama stand up to him, they are denigrated as racists.

What the article above does is place blame for the shooting squarely on the shoulders of the political right before anyone understands the actual motives of the shooter. This incites violence rather than quells it. The author of the article knows this.

The point is, articles like the one above leave no room for discussion. They don't seek the truth; they try to try to bury the truth. It's like the truth is irrelevant until after we (whoever that is) defeat our (whoever that is) enemy. That mindlessness is endemic of human nature, but maybe that is exactly what must be overcome.

It may not matter to the progressives whether what they say is true or not. What they're doing, with the help of complicit media, is setting the stage and getting people accustomed to hearing that the right is violent and the right commits all these heinous crimes. Even if every single case is proven completely false, most people won't hear about it (again, thanks to a complicit media). The seeds of doubt have been sown.

Please Shop at Sears this Christmas Season
by ELAIU

I know I needed this reminder, since Sears isn't always my first choice. It's amazing when you think of how long the war has lasted and Sears hasn't withdrawn from their commitment. Could we each buy at least one thing at Sears this year?

How does Sears treat its employees who are called up for military duty? By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being called up for active duty.

Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all called up reservist employees for up to two years.

I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution. I suggest we all shop at Sears at least once, and be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement & feedback it well deserves.

Pass it on.

I decided to check this before I sent it forward. So I sent the following e-mail to the Sears Customer Service Department:

I received this e-mail and I would like to know if it is true. If it is, the internet may have just become one very good source of advertisement for your company. I know I would go out of my way to buy products from Sears instead of another store for a like item, even if it's cheaper at that store.

This is their answer to my e-mail:

Dear Customer:

Thank you for contacting Sears.The information is factual. We appreciate your positive feedback.

Sears regards service to our country as one of greatest sacrifices our young men and women can make. We are happy to do our part to lessen the burden they bear at this time.

Please pass this on to all your friends. Sears needs to be recognized for this outstanding contribution and we need to show them as Americans, we do appreciate what they are doing for our military!!!

Another Obama White House Lie About Islam
via CanadaFreePress.com

Remember that iftar dinner the president sponsored? The dinner that got him in trouble because he came out in strong support of the mega-mosque at Ground Zero, support from which he backed away the very next day? Well, it turns out he delivered another blatant lie at that dinner, one that slipped under the radar because his support of the Ground Zero Mosque was so controversial.

In his remarks at the iftar observance, Obama claimed that the “first” iftar dinner in the White House was hosted by Thomas Jefferson.

Tonight, we are reminded that Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity. And Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been part of America. The first Muslim ambassador to the United States, from Tunisia, was hosted by President Jefferson, who arranged a sunset dinner for his guest because it was Ramadan—making it the first known iftar at the White House, more than 200 years ago.

In this way, Obama tried to make it seem as if the United States has respected Islam since the early Republic and has observed its celebrations for two hundred years. But this is a major stretching of the truth. Thomas Jefferson did not hold an “iftar” dinner, unless you might call the dinner Obama references “iftar by default.”

Naturally, the left-wing Old Media took Obama’s blatant misconstruction of historical events and went even farther down the road of untruths and lies. The New York Times published a story the next day referencing Jefferson’s mythical iftar dinner and made of it a “White House tradition”!

In hosting the iftar, Mr. Obama was following a White House tradition that, while sporadic, dates to Thomas Jefferson, who held a sunset dinner for the first Muslim ambassador to the United States. President George W. Bush hosted iftars annually.

What tosh. There has never been a tradition of iftar dinners at the White House, sporadic or otherwise, until after the year 1992. Jefferson’s dinner was no iftar dinner and no other president until Bill Clinton even hosted one. We have a “tradition” of exactly three presidents holding iftar dinners, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and now Barack Obama. Not much of a tradition that.

So what of this claim of Jefferson’s iftar dinner? As Jihad Watch informs us, there never really was one. The truth is that in 1805 Jefferson invited to a dinner at the White House one Sidi Soliman Melli Melli, the diplomatic envoy that the Bey of Tunis sent to Washington. The time set for this dinner was 3:30 PM, the normal time that everyone then ate dinner in those days. Since it was Ramadan, however, the envoy informed Jefferson that he could not attend until the sun went down because he was observing his fasting ritual.

Jefferson then offered to push his dinner hour until the sun went down as a courtesy to his invited guest. It was as simple as that. There was no mention of any iftar anything. President Jefferson simply moved the hour of dinner to suit the envoy. There was no change to what was served in order to suit Muslim needs, there was no acknowledgment of the Muslim faith, and no observance of any “iftar” dinner. Jefferson was just being a nice guy.

And of this historical incident, Obama and his cohorts in the left-wing, Old Media have created a mythical “sporadic tradition.” But for Obama and the New York Times to mislead the American people into imagining that the White House has celebrated iftar all the way back to 1805 is simply a straight out lie.

Think islam is just a religion?
better think again

by: Son_Of_Liberty

Some more facts that will lead to the downfall of the Western Infidels by those that hate us stupid Westeners, who continue to have a complacent attitude. I can't believe the practice of placing devout infidel haters to prominent positions in Government and is common knowledge as stated at end of the article below. Holy crap "wake up people".

Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond's book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat

Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life.

Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.

Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges.

When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well.

Here's how it works:

As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:

United States -- Muslim 0.6%
Australia -- Muslim 1.5%
Canada -- Muslim 1.9%
China -- Muslim 1.8%
Italy -- Muslim 1.5%
Norway -- Muslim 1.8%

At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. This is happening in:

Denmark -- Muslim 2%
Germany -- Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom -- Muslim 2.7%
Spain -- Muslim 4%
Thailand -- Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:

France -- Muslim 8%
Philippines -- 5%
Sweden -- Muslim 5%
Switzerland -- Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands -- Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago -- Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections in:

Guyana -- Muslim 10%
India -- Muslim 13.4%
Israel -- Muslim 16%
Kenya -- Muslim 10%
Russia -- Muslim 15%

After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:

Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8%

At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:

Bosnia -- Muslim 40%
Chad -- Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon -- Muslim 59.7%

From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:

Albania -- Muslim 70%
Malaysia -- Muslim 60.4%
Qatar -- Muslim 77..5%
Sudan -- Muslim 70%

After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:

Bangladesh -- Muslim 83%
Egypt -- Muslim 90%
Gaza -- Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia -- Muslim 86.1%
Iran -- Muslim 98%
Iraq -- Muslim 97%
Jordan -- Muslim 92%
Morocco -- Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan -- Muslim 97%
Palestine -- Muslim 99%
Syria -- Muslim 90%
Tajikistan -- Muslim 90%
Turkey -- Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates -- Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of 'Dar-es-Salaam' -- the Islamic House of Peace. Here there's supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:

Afghanistan -- Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia -- Muslim 100%
Somalia -- Muslim 100%
Yemen -- Muslim 100%

Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.

'Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel. -- Leon Uris, 'The Haj'

It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law. The national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrasses. They learn only the Koran. To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death. Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate.

Today's 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world's population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers. Muslims will exceed 50% of the world's population by the end of this century.

Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond's book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat

Well, boys and girls, today we are letting the fox guard the henhouse. The wolves will be herding the sheep!

Obama appoints two devout Muslims to Homeland Security posts. Doesn't this make you feel safer already?

Obama and Janet Napolitano appoint Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim, as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development.

DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim who was born in Damascus, Syria, as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).

NOTE: Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant...? Just wondering.

Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions? Doesn't this make you feel safer already??

That should make the US' homeland much safer, huh!! Was it not "Devout Muslim men" that flew planes into U.S. buildings 9 years ago?

Was it not a Devout Muslim who killed 13 at Fort Hood?

Greetings fellow Patriots
by: John Albert Dummett Jr.
July 23, 2010

I know it seems strange that an ordinary citizen would step forth and ask for support from people who don't know me from Sam Adam to help me get elected to the highest office in the land. Some might even get a chuckle from it while others might think me completely out of my mind. To tell you the truth, like many of you, I am out of my mind seeing what is happening to my beloved nation. What I have come to expect and count on by being a citizen of this nation has been completely turned upside down.

I remember a time when children stood up and swore an oath to this nation every day before class began. Now when I attend public events and the pledge of allegiance is recited; few in the crowd even know all of the words. I see them mouth them silently as to keep others from knowing they don't know the words. Even when I attend any professional sporting event, half the crowd doesn't know the words to our national anthem.

How in the world has this happened? How have we become so complacent to where we don't even think about what it means to be a citizen of the greatest nation to ever grace or exist on this planet?

I have come to the conclusion that we, as a nation, have become a part of a great conspiracy to homogenize this country with the rest of the democratic, capitalist world. Many know this notion as the One World Order. As far as I am concerned the One World Order is a myth propagated by folks who are too much into Star Trek. I am not against free nations from getting along with each other, politically and economically, but I am against loosing the identity this nation forged for itself while other nations were being forced to live under a monarchy or some fascist dictatorship or worst yet socialist State.

The founding fathers of this nation were centuries ahead of their time when they drew up and gave us a system that allowed the most freedom and liberties while still maintaining a government that was able to respond to threats from within and outside our national borders.

I believe what our founding fathers created for us has stood the test of time and should serve as a template for the rest of the world to follow. If the rest of the world is all fired up about becoming a One-World Order then they should apply to become part of this union by becoming a State. I for one will never give up any of my rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States in order to get along with what the rest of the world and what they think is the right and moral path to take. This is precisely why I have decided to run for President of the United States. I will do everything in my power to defend the very document that has empowered us with rights no other nation on the face of the Earth grants to its citizens.

The job of the Presidency does not require a degree in political science nor does it require years of experience dealing with individuals or organizations fighting to get their agendas accepted by the federal government as the way of doing things.

A good President is a man or woman who abides by the Constitution and defends the principles contained within its pages as the way the government and its citizens deal with each other. The framers of the Constitution were the geniuses of their time. The document they came up with was thought out with great care and diligence to completely define the relationship between government and men. In order to reap the benefits and rewards afforded by that great document, there are obligations that must be adhered to in order for it to work. Collectively as a nation we have forgot the obligations each and every one of us owe this nation to remain a free and independent people. We have come to expect freedom and liberty as something that we have ingrained in our DNA instead of paid for by the blood of people snuffed out in the prime of their life. These people do not get to reap the rewards we all take completely for granted and most of us only think about their sacrifice when we celebrate Independence Day in July.

There are a lot of folks out there who think the Constitution has outlived its usefulness. They also believe that the times we now find ourselves in and the troubles we face cannot be addressed by ideas thought of by men born nearly three hundred years ago. What these misguided people do not understand is truth is a universal concept and withstands the test of time.

Our founding fathers were quite brilliant because they anticipated that times would change, and along with that, culture morals and morays. What a society considers is normal today changes with the times, and is a normal and expected process. To address this reality, the framers of the Constitution built into it a mechanism to change. They called this process a Constitutional Convention and a Constitutional Amendment process. Anytime a law is considered antiquated , unreasonable, outdated or does not address the needs of society, the States can come together and decide what needs to be changed. The proposed change has to go through a vigorous process to prevent established and accepted law from just being changed because of the whims of the people. The career politicians of our times don't have the patience or aren't willing to go through a process designed to look at changing the Constitution in a precise and complete manner. They continually turn to the courts to circumvent the Constitution and the will of the people because a few ultra Liberal Presidents managed to nominate candidates to the court that became Constitutional activists. If the Constitution is going to stop being whittled away to nothing recognizable, we must return to the time-tested way of creating and passing laws. We must elect Presidents who nominate justices to the Supreme Court who won't legislate from the bench but instead, to their Constitutional duty and determine if a law is Constitutional. If the law does not, then the Supreme Court is to return that law back to Congress until the law does meet constitutional criteria, These days, all three branches are in cahoots with each other. In America today, when Liberal justices take an oath to defend the Constitution, they do so with their fingers crossed behind their backs. They understand and have precedent to lean on that the American people will allow the law contained in the Constitution to be chipped away one small piece at a time. The lawmakers of today only need to convince the American People that the change they propose is in the best interest of the people, when in fact, most laws that are changed only affect a small portion of the population. These are laws that have the greatest detriment and longest impact on this nation as a whole. Again, it is easier to cook a live frog when you turn the heat up under him slowly instead of throwing him in a boiling pot of water. Turn the heat up slowly as the Liberal have done and we patriotic frogs sit happily in the warm water until our goose is cooked.

I am running for President because my entire life experiences have given me all the tools I need to see to it that the Constitution is adhered to. I will guarantee that the laws and concepts written down in the Constitution will not be changed or altered without first going through the process put in place by the framers of the Constitution. I will see to it that the separation of powers, between the three branches of government, is restored. I will do everything humanly possible to return powers the federal government absconded with back to the States where the power really lays. As president I will use all powers specifically granted to the federal government to protect and defend the document we base our great nation upon. You do not need to be born with a silver spoon in your mouth, as evidenced by Abraham Lincoln, nor do you have to graduate from and Ivy League College like Ronald Reagan (Eureka), Jimmy Carter (Navy), Gerald Ford (Michigan), Richard Nixon (Whittier), Dwight Eisenhower (Army) and Harry Truman (Missouri) to be President. The time has come to elect an ordinary citizen from the class of folks that nearly all of us belong to and that is the middle class. Who knows better what it takes to provide for a family under the rules set up by the ruling class of politicians who rule America?

I have successfully raised a family under the Draconian laws set up by politicians that don't know what a scanner is at the local supermarket as George Bush did not know when he came across one at a supermarket. Even the current Usurper in Chief does not know how to use an Ipod for Heavens sake. How much further can you be removed from ordinary citizens than these two? Multiply that by the members of the oligarchy who rule this country, and you will come to the conclusion that any reasonably thinking man or woman can come to. Our politicians are completely out of touch with what it means to be a citizen of this great nation. The President of the United States needs only to be able to surround himself with individuals who are experts in their fields and listen to what these people have to say in order to come to whatever decision that needs to be made. Each of us does this every day of our lives. We will then seek out the best explanation as to the cause of a problem then look at all possible solutions to solve it. At the end we pray to God Almighty that what decision we did make was a good and just one for everyone involved.

The most important job of a President of the United States is to ensure that the Union is safe and doing well both economically and socially. However even after writing that I believe the single most important duty of any President is to defend and protect the very document that spells out the rights granted to the citizens of this nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

There have been very few presidents in the last century who lived up to that obligation and none that have done so this century at all. I have sworn and oath to God and to the people of the United States to return this nation to the way it is supposed to be ran. I will defend the Constitutional principles that guide this nation with my life if need be, in order to ensure that all generations to come after us, and our posterity, continue to enjoy Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Please go to my web site to see where I stand on the issues and if you agree with me please join in the effort to elect a common ordinary middle class American President of these United States.

I am asking as a fellow Patriot for you to at least take a look at my platform. If you have any questions or suggestions please contact me through my personal email address. I will answer each and every email personally. If you are gracious enough to read what I have to say, I owe it to you to return an answer. I am here to let you know in no uncertain terms, that while we may not agree on every subject, I would not dare to assume that I know the answers to everything. There are plenty of good patriotic Americans out there that have answers too and to assume that I know everything smacks of arrogance. The only way to come up with solutions that we can all live with is to talk amongst ourselves to come up with answers that we can all live with. Together we can come up with the solutions but as long as the people we elect think that they are smarter than anyone else, we will only manage to create gridlock and an environment of hostility towards each other. We are a nation of many people melted into one. This is the secret behind our great strength. We have to work together to solve the complex issues that confront us all for the sake of out children and the generations of children to come.

I offer true change in the way this nation is governed. I am not using the word Change as a catch phrase to make you thing you are getting something special when in fact the only change you are getting is a change in faces and not a paradigm shift on how politicians interact with their constituents.

Elect me John Albert Dummett Jr.

Thank you for having the patience to read this, God bless you and God bless the United States of America 2012

St. Louis Tea Party Coalition Resolution
July 12, 2010

The St. Louis Tea Party Coalition passed a resolution last night condemning the racist attacks by the NAACP and the democratic-media complex.

St. Louis Tea Party Coalition Resolution
July 12, 2010

Whereas, the National Coalition for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was founded to advance the position of minority groups, and

Whereas a hallmark of the NAACP has been to do the important work of identifying and exposing remaining vestiges of racism and discrimination, and

Whereas the NAACP vocally stands against the discriminatory and harmful practice of labeling people with a broad brush, and

Whereas the NAACP decided to launch their 101st National Convention with a resolution condemning the Tea Party movement and labeling millions of their fellow Americans who subscribe to the movement as “racists”, and

Whereas the “Tea Party movement” is a label applied to patriotic Americans who have expressed their political free speech in the grand tradition of all that is American, that being the spirited expression of viewpoints in a 100% peaceful manner, and

Whereas, it is a hallmark of America that we settle our disputes civilly and avoid the gutter tactic of attempting to silence opponents by inflammatory name-calling, and Whereas the very term “racist” has diminished meaning due to its overuse by political partisans including members of the NAACP, and

Whereas, the NAACP had an opportunity to preserve some semblance of legitimacy by standing up for Ken Gladney, the victim of a vicious racist battery conducted by a black avowed communist, even labeling him an “Uncle Tom”, but chose instead to use the opportunity to mock the St. Louis Tea Party, and

Whereas, the NAACP has refused to denounce the New Black Panther’s call to murder white cops and their babies, and

Whereas, the NAACP does its entire membership a grave disservice by hypocritically engaging in the very conduct it purports to oppose,

Now therefore be it resolved that the St. Louis Tea Party condemns the NAACP for lowering itself to the dishonorable position of a partisan political attack dog organization, and,

Be it further resolved that the St. Louis Tea Party calls on similar organizations to join in unanimous condemnation of this despicable behavior, and

Be it further resolved that we demand that the NAACP withdrawal their bigoted, false and inflammatory resolution against the tea party for any further consideration, and

Be it further resolved that these organizations call on the Internal Revenue Service to evenly apply their standards and consider the tax-exempt status of the NAACP considering the degree to which they are engaging in habitual partisan political behavior.

Adopted unanimously, this day, July 12th, in the year of our Lord, 2010.

A copy of this resolution shall be sent immediately to the NAACP at: washingtonbureau@naacpnet.org

Is U S On Slippery Slope To Tyranny
by: THOMAS SOWELL
via investors.com

When Adolf Hitler was building up the Nazi movement in the 1920s, leading up to his taking power in the 1930s, he deliberately sought to activate people who did not normally pay much attention to politics.

Such people were a valuable addition to his political base, since they were particularly susceptible to Hitler's rhetoric and had far less basis for questioning his assumptions or his conclusions.

"Useful idiots" was the term supposedly coined by V.I. Lenin to describe similarly unthinking supporters of his dictatorship in the Soviet Union.

Put differently, a democracy needs informed citizens if it is to thrive, or ultimately even survive.

In our times, American democracy is being dismantled, piece by piece, before our very eyes by the current administration in Washington, and few people seem to be concerned about it.

The president's poll numbers are going down because increasing numbers of people disagree with particular policies of his, but the damage being done to the fundamental structure of this nation goes far beyond particular counterproductive policies.

Just where in the Constitution of the United States does it say that a president has the authority to extract vast sums of money from a private enterprise and distribute it as he sees fit to whomever he deems worthy of compensation? Nowhere.

And yet that is precisely what is happening with a $20 billion fund to be provided by BP to compensate people harmed by their oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Many among the public and in the media may think that the issue is simply whether BP's oil spill has damaged many people, who ought to be compensated.

But our government is supposed to be "a government of laws and not of men."

If our laws and our institutions determine that BP ought to pay $20 billion — or $50 billion or $100 billion — then so be it.

But the Constitution says that private property is not to be confiscated by the government without "due process of law."

Technically, it has not been confiscated by Barack Obama, but that is a distinction without a difference.

With vastly expanded powers of government available at the discretion of politicians and bureaucrats, private individuals and organizations can be forced into accepting the imposition of powers that were never granted to the government by the Constitution.

If you believe that the end justifies the means, then you don't believe in constitutional government.

Thank God for the President
by: Unknown
June 4, 2010

Written by an 82-year-old very wise lady. She gives us a whole new slant on the amazing job Obama is doing:

1. He destroyed the Clinton Political Machine - Driving a stake thru the heart of Hillary's Presidential aspirations - something no Republican was ever able to do. Remember when a Hillary Presidency scared the daylights out of you!

2. He killed off the Kennedy Dynasty - No more Kennedy's trolling Washington looking for booze and women wanting rides home. American women and Freedom are safer tonight!

3. He is destroying the Democratic Party before our eyes! Dennis Moore had never lost a race - quit Evan Bayh had never lost a race - quit Byron Dorgan - had never lost a race - quit Harry Reid - Soon to be GONE

These are just a handful of the Democrats whose political careers Obama has destroyed! By the end of 2010 dozens more will be gone!

In December of 2008 the Democrats were on the rise. In the last two election cycles they had picked up 14 senate seats and 52 house seats. The press was touting the death of the Conservative Movement and the Republican Party. In just one year, Obama put a stop to all of this and will probably give the house, if not the senate back to the Republicans.

4. He has completely exposed liberals and progressives for what they are. Every Generation seems to need to relearn the lesson on why they should never actually put liberals in charge. He is bringing home the lesson very well!

Liberals tax, borrow and spend - check
Liberals won't bring themselves to protect America - check
Liberals want to take over the economy - check
Liberals think they know what is best for everyone - check
Liberals aren't happy till they are running YOUR life - check

5. He has brought more Americans back to conservatism than anyone since Reagan. In One year he rejuvenated the Conservative movement and brought out to the streets millions of Freedom Loving Americans. Name me one other time in your life that you saw your friends and neighbors this interested in taking back America !

6. His amazing leadership has sparked the greatest period of sales of firearms and ammunition this country has seen. Law abiding citizens have rallied and have provided a "stimulus" to the sporting goods field while other industries have failed, faded or moved off-shore!

7. In all honesty one year ago I was more afraid than I had ever been in my life. Not of the economy but of the direction our country was going. I thought Americans had forgotten what this country was all about. My neighbors, friends, strangers proved to me that my lack of confidence of the Greatness and Wisdom of the American people was flat out wrong.

8. When the American People wake up no smooth talking teleprompter reader can fool them!

Barak Obama woke up these Great Americans! Again I want to say Thank you Barak Obama! This is exactly the kind of hope and change we desperately needed.

Now, if only God be with us...!

AMEN

Coming to a street near you
by: Mike V.

Sipsey Street Irregulars

The economic disasters now portending will inevitably lead to government cutbacks which will themselves lead to a thousand little (and perhaps a few big) such Invergordon mutinies. I recently asked a Birmingham cop what he was going to do when an announced ten percent pay cut was instituted. His reply? "Work twenty percent less."

Forget the FBI statistics which currently claim crime reductions. Whatever criminals are they are certainly opportunistic. A cut in police patrols, or even a PERCEIVED cut in police response time, will see increased thefts, armed robberies and home invasions. Why? Because as Willie Sutton observed about robbing banks in the 1930s, "that's where the money is." More importantly for the opportunistic criminal our homes are largely unprotected by security guards and surveillance cameras, and in a time of the breakdown of government functions when 911 becomes even more of a sorry joke than it is now, the threat to the criminal boils down to citizens with firearms.

Forget cops, forget even the military -- at the local level it is the fear of the armed citizenry in the minds of criminals that keeps order. Which is why crime is so high in victim disarmament zones like Chicago.

Cuts in police forces, and especially the inevitable police strikes from forced draconian government spending cuts, will lead to greater neighborhood crime. For the society at large, this is terrible. For us, the armed citizenry, it is an employment opportunity whose job description was written by the Founders.

And when anarchy looms, threatening Momma's children and sense of security, Daddy had better have his ass off the couch, his rifle in his hands and be drilling with a neighborhood watch on steroids.

The future threatens anarchy, but this is exactly what the citizens' militias were designed to cope with.

So you'd better get ready.

Anarchy is coming to a street near you.

Memorial Day Remembrance
by:
Oliver North

May 30, 2010

Arlington National Cemetery, VA – This is the place that receives the most attention on Memorial Day – though it is but one of 141 national cemeteries in the United States and 24 others located on foreign soil. Many of our countrymen will observe this “last Monday in May” holiday with travel, shopping and picnics. But those who take the time to visit one of these hallowed grounds will have an unforgettable experience. These are the final resting places for more than 3 million Americans who served in our armed forces – as Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Guardsmen and Marines – including the nearly 5,500 who have perished in Afghanistan and Iraq.

A visit to one of these quiet memorials is a tribute to those who made history by wearing our nation’s uniform and taking up arms to preserve our liberty and free tens of millions of others from tyranny. In words written on stone markers, these places tell the story of whom we are as a people.

Regardless of when they served, all interred in these cemeteries sacrificed the comforts of home and absented themselves from the warmth and affection of loved ones. Since 1776, more than 1.5 million Americans have lost their lives while in uniform.

At countless funerals and memorial services for those who lost their lives in the service of our country, I hear the question, “Why is such a good young person taken from us in the prime of life?” Plato, the Greek Philosopher, apparently sought to resolve the issue by observing, “Only the dead have seen the end of war.” I prefer to take my solace in the words of Jesus to the Apostle John: “Father, I will that those you have given me, be with me where I am.”

My sojourns to this “Sacred Ground,” as Tom Ruck calls our national cemeteries in the title of his magnificent book, remind me that among those here are veterans who served with my father and all of my uncles in the conflagration of World War II. Only a handful of those 16.5 million from that “greatest generation” remain. Others resting in these consecrated places were tested just five years later in our first fight against despotic communism – on the Korean peninsula. They braved stifling heat, mind-numbing cold and an enemy that often outnumbered them 10 to 1.

Here are headstones of those who served in the decade between Korea and Vietnam. More than 12 millions young Americans donned military uniforms in what was called “the cold war.” It was only cold for those who didn’t have to fight in it. They served on land, air and sea in lonely outposts, dusty camps, along barbed wire barriers in foreign lands, on guard against those who would have done us harm if they had the chance.

Between 1964 and 1975 more than 7 million young Americans were committed to the bloody contest in Southeast Asia. The names of 58,267 who died from that fight are on the wall of the Vietnam War Memorial – some of them were my Marines and my brother’s Soldiers. Headstones in cemeteries all across this land testify to more of their selfless sacrifice – and serve as a reminder that the victory denied in that war should never happen again.

In the 3½ decades since Vietnam, not a single year has passed without Americans in uniform being committed to hostile action somewhere around the globe – including Grenada, Beirut, Panama, the Balkans and Kuwait. We are not a war-like people. But for more than two centuries ours has been the only nation on earth willing to consistently send its sons and daughters into harm’s way – not for gold or oil or colonial conquest – but to offer others the hope of liberty.

Since 9-11-01 that great legacy has been borne by volunteers serving in the shadows of the Hindu Kush, along the banks of the Tigris & Euphrates, in the Persian Gulf and on anti-piracy patrols in the Indian Ocean. These young Americans are engaged against a merciless enemy who has proven repeatedly that there is no atrocity beneath them – and that they will do whatever it takes to kill as many of our countrymen as possible.

Those now in uniform deserve our thanks, for no nation has ever had a better military force than the one we have today. And no accolade to those presently in our country’s service is greater than honoring the veterans who preceded them on Memorial Day.

Who These People Are
by: Jennifer III
I'll Take Liberty

If you’re ever in the forest walking along, not paying much attention, and stumble into a small brown furry object and suddenly that little furry object howls in fear, shoots up the nearest tree like a rocket and looks down at you in fright….you should know that you are in for some pain.

You see, it’s not the little bear you should worry about, it’s the several hundred pounds of fur, teeth and claws that is probably moving in your direction as fast as it possibly can.

Normally bears are just as afraid of you as you are of them. But this isn’t a normal situation. You are now the threat and nothing short of killing the mother bear or outrunning her will save your life.

On this day in 1985, as posted on Cliffs Of Insanity. Innocents are killed, considered acceptable collateral damage by a government bent on putting down a resistance group in Philadelphia by bombing them. Five children died.

On another day in 1993. A resistance group is burned alive, women, children and all.

Another day in 1933. An unknown number of women, children and babies died.

Whenever the government feels threatened, they take it out on our children. Some would say this is a good reason to let the government do whatever they want, for the sake of our children. They control us by using our children as hostages.

I was going to post a graphic picture of children killed during the holocaust, but I just couldn’t stomach the images. Yeah, kowtowing to the demands of government worked out real well for those mothers, didn’t it?

And yes, it can happen here. It already has.

The smart mother bears work actively to protect their young before any of the above happens to their little bears. This isn’t just politics, it’s a fight for our young. A fight for their very lives and futures.

So my question to all the other loving parents out there within the reach of this post is this:

What are you going to do about it?

“Second Amendment Rights”
by: Jennifer III
I'll Take Liberty

May 19, 2010

It’s time we cleared something up among all us ‘right wing extremists’. There are no such thing as “Second Amendment rights”. Now I’m not saying we don’t have a right to keep and bear arms. Quite the opposite. What I am saying is that when we call them “Second Amendment rights” we cheapen them. They are much more than that.

“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

Notice it doesn’t say that the right to keep and bear arms ‘is hereby granted’, or anything to that effect. It’s talking about something that already exists, something that predates the Constitution. In fact, the Constitution’s preamble says the purpose of the whole document is to ‘secure the blessings of Liberty’.

Going back a bit further to the Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

Here again, they are talking about pre-existing rights, rights we are born with. The rights are not created by the document, if anything the government is created by the rights. The rights existed long before the government was formed and will continue to exist long after the government in question ends. Rights are forever, they are eternal.

To call our God-given (or natural) rights “Second Amendment rights” implies that the rights are dependent on the government to exist or be of any use. Really, the right to arms is something they can never take away. Attempts to take the right are of no moral force, and human beings are under no moral obligation to follow laws that attempt to infringe on this right.

Another important thing to understand about the Second Amendment is that it only applies to the federal government.

When the Constitution first came into force, several states had official religions. Many of them did other things not in harmony with the Bill of Rights. It was only later when the Supreme Court got into incorporating portions of the Bill of Rights against the states, that anything in those first ten amendments meant anything to state governments. And for some reason they still haven’t gotten around to incorporating the Second Amendment.

Fortunately, many of the same legal protections from the Bill of Rights exist in state constitutions, often with the same language as the Second Amendment, word for word. If the federal Second Amendment was meant to guarantee that states wouldn’t attempt to infringe on that right, why would the writers of the state constitutions have even bothered?

More importantly, is that the only layer of legal protection you want between the state and your arms? Keep in mind that DC v. Heller said the amendment guaranteed an individual right, but subjected it to restrictions such as licensing, registration, and restrictions on the types of weapons owned or where you can take them. If that’s all that’s stopping your state government from violating your rights, even the ‘conservative’ judges on the court give them quite a bit of leeway with your rights.

It’s important to keep in mind that our right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental human right, not something granted by benevolent politicians that can be retracted at a whim, or even ten million whims.

It’s also important to hold your state government to the standards set by your state Constitution. Work actively to repeal any law that infringes on your fundamental rights and then work to nullify the federal laws.

But most of all, don’t lend Leviathan any credibility by referring to your right to keep and bear arms as a “Second Amendment” right.

Some Pay, Some Receive
by Phyllis Schlafly
EagleForum.org
April 25, 2010

The news that the United States has become a two-class society, i.e., half of Americans pay federal income taxes and half don't, has bounced around the media and shocked Americans. Most people had no knowledge of this appalling economic fact.

Even worse is the reality that 40 percent of Americans receive federal government handouts of cash and valuable benefits. Those handouts are financed by the people who do pay federal income taxes.

Those handouts create a tremendous bloc of people who depend on the government for their living expenses. The Tax Foundation reports that 20 percent of Americans now get 75 percent of their income from the federal government, and another 20 percent get 45 percent of their income from the government.

Obama's Stimulus law will add nearly $800 billion in new means-tested welfare spending over the next decade. That means about $22,500 for every poor person in the United States, which will cost over $10,000 for each family that pays federal income taxes.

According to the Tax Foundation, married taxpayers pay three-fourths of all federal income taxes, whereas two-thirds of single parents who file as head-of-household pay no income tax at all. According to a Heritage Foundation report, taxpayers (mostly those who are married) will spend more than $300 billion providing welfare aid to single parents (mostly women).

The pundits like to divide Republicans into two classes, the fiscal conservatives and the so-called social conservatives, and pretend that their interests are different and mutually exclusive. In fact, the overwhelming reason for big government's extravagant spending, which is properly railed against by limited-government conservatives, is the breakdown in our culture, which social conservatives have been battling for years.

If limited-government conservatives are dreaming of taking back America for fiscal sanity in the November elections, they should study how the unprecedented decline in marriage and the increase in illegitimacy are the major causes of our bloated government and its gigantic welfare spending.

In 2008, 40.6 percent of children born in the United States were born outside of marriage; that's 1,720,000 children. This is not, as the media try to tell us, a teenage problem.

Only 7 percent of those illegitimate babies were born to girls under age 18, and over three-fourths were born to women over age 20. The problem is the collapse of marriage as the social institution responsible for the costs of the care of children.

The fiscal conservative faction of the Republican Party should also study why Republicans won their big Congressional majority in 1994, and what has happened since. The Democratic Party's welfare boondoggle was a major reason for the Republican victory.

The wrong-headed welfare system started in the 1960s with Lyndon Johnson's Great Society and his proclaimed war against poverty. The system should have been called the war against marriage.

LBJ's Great Society set up a grossly immoral system whereby millions of people were taught that they had an "entitlement" to pick the pockets of law-abiding, taxpaying families if they met two conditions: they didn't work, and they were not married to someone who did work. This destroyed the work ethic and subsidized illegitimacy by giving single moms money and scores of benefits such as welfare, food stamps, Medicaid, housing, utilities, WIC, and commodities.

LBJ's welfare system undermined marriage and greatly increased all the social problems that flow from fatherless homes, such as drugs, sex, suicide, runaways, and school dropouts. The feminists rejoiced because all the cash went to women, thereby deconstructing what they called the oppressive patriarchy, and the liberals rejoiced because these handouts required more bureaucrats and higher taxes.

True to their Contract with America, the Republican Congress passed welfare reform in 1996. It was even signed by President Clinton, who admitted that it was time to "end welfare as we know it."

The goal of Republican welfare reform was to help families move to employment and self-sufficiency and end long-term dependence on government assistance. This policy was repealed by Obama's Stimulus, which will add more families to welfare dependency by paying bonuses to states that increase their welfare caseloads.

Obama's real goal is a permanent expansion of the welfare system. Nothing promotes that goal as much as discouraging marriage and providing financial incentives to increase the number of single moms.

Single moms have become a fast-growing demographic group that demands a growing welfare industry. They look to Big Brother government (a.k.a. the Obama Administration) as a provider and the solution to their problems.

Even Obama's Health Control Law contains a subsidy of thousands of dollars a year to unmarried couples and a penalty if they get married. That's the goal of the Obama liberals: a society dependent on the government.

Call to Prayer on Monday 19 April Patriots Day
by ELAIU
April 18, 2010

Folks, as most of us know Monday the 19th is Patriots day and the anniversary of many other things (some not so pleasant). It will be a day of much pressure and worry for me, for I will have many close friends at the RTC (Return the Constitution) open carry day in Northern Virginia at Ft Hunt National Park.

This event has been carefully organized with cooperation of local and State law enforcement. From what I am hearing the planning has been top notch and there will be a very large contingent of people and law enforcement watching the crowd quite carefully. I pray that this is true .... one would think that trying to pull a stunt in the middle of thousands of armed citizens would be impossible. The enemies of the Constitution and free men everywhere are bound to get a few fools that will do anything to stir the pot. They all realize that they are losing ground again and they are very close to accomplishing their dreams of a socialist utopian workers paradise and they want it as bad as we want freedom.

This has been vilified by MSM already and Rachel Maddow (pronounced MAD- COW) is running a special comparing us to Timothy McVeigh. The stakes are very high and as we try and get the attention of nonrepresenting representatives who ignore and bypass the Constitution they swore to protect and defend, I hope that you will keep all of the brave men and women who again took time off from work and lives ... spent money they really didn't have to try and restore our liberties. Please keep them in thought and prayer on Monday the 19th Patriots Day ..... the anniversary of the "shot heard around the world" at Lexington Green. The launching of the most blessed nation in history, must not be allowed to slip into history, for once liberty is lost it is probably lost forever. I have dedicated my life to the cause of liberty and the restoration of our basic principles of freedom guaranteed by God not politicians as have many others ....please pray to a merciful Lord and Savior that their efforts are not in vain and will receive favor and the blessings of a grateful nation.

Thank you

NEVER FORGIVE A TRAITOR
by RONALD D. SAMPSON, CMSgt, USAF
716 Maintenance Squadron,
Chief of Maintenance
April 10, 2010


SHE REALLY WAS A TRAITOR!!
And now the President wants to Honor her ......!!!!

In Memory of LT. C.Thomsen Wieland, who spent 100 days at the Hanoi Hilton.

She really is a traitor.

A TRAITOR IS ABOUT TO BE HONORED KEEP THIS MOVING ACROSS AMERICA

This is for all the kids born in the 70's who do not remember, and didn't have to bear the burden that our fathers, mothers and older brothers and sisters had to bear.

Jane Fonda is being honored as one of the '100 Women of the Century.' BY BARBRA WALTERS

Unfortunately, many have forgotten and still countless others have never known how Ms. Fonda betrayed not only the idea of our country, but specific men who served and sacrificed during Vietnam

The first part of this is from an F-4E pilot. The pilot's name is Jerry Driscoll, a River Rat.
In 1968, the former Commandant of the USAF Survival School was a POW in Ho Lo Prison The ' Hanoi Hilton.'

Dragged from a stinking cesspit of a cell, cleaned, fed, and dressed in clean PJ's, he was ordered to describe for a visiting American 'Peace Activist' the 'lenient and humane treatment he'd received.

He spat at Ms. Fonda, was clubbed, and was dragged away. During the subsequent beating, he fell forward on to the camp Commandant 's feet, which sent that officer berserk.

In 1978, the Air Force Colonel still suffered from double vision (which permanently ended his Flying career) from the Commandant's frenzied application of a wooden baton.

From 1963-65, Col. Larry Carrigan was in the 47FW/DO (F-4E's). He spent 6 years in the 'Hanoi Hilton'... the first three of which his family only knew he was 'missing in action'. His wife lived on faith that he was still alive. His group, too, got the cleaned-up, fed and clothed routine in preparation for a 'peace delegation' visit.

They, however, had time and devised a plan to get word to the world that they were alive and still survived. Each man secreted a tiny piece of paper, with his Social Security Number on it, in the palm of his hand.

When paraded before Ms. Fonda and a cameraman, she walked the line, shaking each man's hand and asking little encouraging snippets like: 'Aren't you sorry you bombed Babies?' and 'Are you grateful for the humane Treatment from your benevolent captors?' Believing this HAD to be an act, they each palmed her their sliver of paper.

She took them all without missing a beat. At the end of the line and once the camera stopped rolling, to the shocked disbelief of the POWs, she turned to the officer in charge and handed him all the little pieces of paper.

Three men died from the subsequent beatings. Colonel Carrigan was almost number four. But he survived, which is the only reason we Know of her actions that day.

I was a civilian economic development advisor In Vietnam , and was captured by the North Vietnamese communists in South Vietnam in 1968, and held prisoner for over 5 years. I spent 27 months in solitary confinement; one year in a cage in Cambodia; and one year in a 'black box' in Hanoi. My North Vietnamese captors deliberately poisoned and murdered a female missionary, a nurse in a leprosarium in Ban me Thuot, South Vietnam , whom I buried in the jungle near the Cambodian border. At one time, I weighed only about 90 lbs. (My normal weight is 170 lbs)

We were Jane Fonda's 'war criminals...'

When Jane Fonda was in Hanoi , I was asked by the camp communist political officer if I would be willing to meet with her. I said yes, for I wanted to tell her about the real treatment we POWs received and how different it was from the treatment purported by the North Vietnamese, and parroted by her as 'humane and lenient.'

Because of this, I spent three days on a rocky floor on my knees, with my arms outstretched with a large steel weights placed on my hands, and beaten with a bamboo cane.

I had the opportunity to meet with Jane Fonda soon after I was released. I asked her if she would be willing to debate me on TV. She never did answer me.

These first-hand experiences do not exemplify someone who should be honored as part of '100 Years of Great Women.' Lest we forget...' 100 Years of Great Women' should never include a traitor whose hands are covered with the blood of so many patriots.

There are few things I have strong visceral reactions to, but Hanoi Jane's participation in blatant treason, is one of them. Please take the time to forward to as many people as you possibly can. It will eventually end up on her computer and she needs to know that we will never forget.

Life As A Leftist
by
Nancy Morgan
RightBias.com
March 31, 2010

After much consideration, I have decided to become a leftist. Here's why:

As a leftist, I have a right to a living wage. I was born with this right and under the system of social justice Obama and friends are implementing, rich fat cats are under an obligation to pay for my rights.

As a leftist, I also have a right to free health care, a roof over my head, and food on my table. And as long as I keep voting for Democrats, this right will be protected and, hopefully expanded.

As a solid member of the left, I have the right to abort my baby, and even have other people pay for it. I also have the right to free (taxpayer funded) birth control and my boyfriend has the right to obtain sexual enhancement aids for free. Not that he needs them, but, hey, they're free.

As a leftist, I have the right to indulge in sluttish behavior with whomever I want. Not only that, I can describe myself as 'empowered' instead of merely being a tramp.

Being a good leftist, I have the right not to be insulted. My behavior is sanctioned by my fellow leftists and it has been decided that anyone who insults me is, by nature, a bigot, and therefore of no consequence.

I also have the right to redefine words. And the right to ridicule anyone who objects. Especially if they're white Christian males.

Best of all, I am under no obligation to back up my feelings with facts. We on the left understand very well that any and all criticism coming from the right is motivated by hate and therefore invalid.

As a leftist, I don't have to worry about the consequences of my actions. It is understood that as long as my intentions are pure, the end results don't matter. I want it known that I fully intend to donate my lottery winnings to those poor Haitians, just as soon as I win them. Please pat me on the back. (Wait for the cameras, you idiot!)

Being a leftist entitles me to marry someone of the same-sex. And my children will have the right to choose their own gender. And schools, businesses and agencies that don't accommodate our choices could well be liable for prosecution under the hate crimes bill. How cool is that?

I am also free to choose my own God, or no God. This is a no brainer, as everyone knows that Mother Earth is the source of all spirituality. So as long as I don't litter and I recycle faithfully, I can legitimately claim piety. And as long as I publicly confess my transgressions, there is no need to atone. Whew.

I am now morally justified in walking away from my home mortgage. Those greedy lenders will be left holding the bag. Maybe that will teach them there's more to life than the bottom line.

And the car I got under 'cash for clunkers' won't be paid for either. Its not my fault I couldn't pay for it. But as soon as I get my discrimination lawsuit settlement from my former boss, I'll be able to get it back. Or maybe a new one.

As a leftist, I need focus only on my rights, and their infringement thereof. The government has decided to shoulder my former responsibilities. And about time!

Life as a leftist is good. Having my needs and problems taken care of by the government leaves me free to indulge my inner child. I no longer need to be ashamed of my failures, as I now know that the deck has been stacked against me all my life and those failures were not my fault!

I am now liberated and empowered. As an added bonus, I am a member of four different victim groups, which allows me to maintain the high moral ground. This is called social justice.

I never knew life could be so good. All rights and no responsibilities! This could only happen in America. And as soon as the U.S. atones for past sins to my satisfaction, I'll be happy to admit that America is not a bad place to live.

Out-of-touch Congress Sounds Our Clarion Call to Take a Stand
by Sarah Palin
March 22, 2010

We’ve been remind many times that elections have consequences. Yesterday we saw the consequence of voting for those who believe in “fundamentally transforming” America whether we want it or not. Yesterday they voted. In November, we get to vote. We won’t forget what we saw yesterday. Congress passed a bill while Americans said “no,” and thousands of everyday citizens even surrounded the Capital Building to beg them not to it. Has there ever been a more obvious exhibition of a detached and imperious government?

In the weeks to come, we can expect them to try to change the subject, but we won’t forget. Don't let them move on to further “transformational” steps while forgetting what Congress just did against the will of the people. Though Obamacare will inflict billions in new taxes on individuals and employers, at least it creates some jobs: the IRS might have to hire as many as 16,000 new employees to enforce all the new taxes and penalties the bill calls for! And that doesn’t include all the other government jobs from the 159 new agencies, panels, commissions and departments this bill will create. As the private sector shrinks, we can count on government to keep growing along with the deficits needed to keep it all afloat. (Is this the kind of “change” Americans asked for?)

In the end, this unsustainable bill jeopardizes the very thing it was supposed to fix – our health care system. Somewhere along the way we forgot that health care reform is about doctors and patients, not the IRS and politicians. Instead of helping doctors with tort reform, this bill has made primary care physicians think about getting out of medicine. It was supposed to make health care more affordable, but our premiums will continue to go up. It was supposed to help more people get coverage, but there will still be 23 million uninsured people by 2019.

Though they’d like us to forget, we will remember the corrupt deals, the corrupt process, the lack of transparency, the deceptive gimmicks to game the CBO score, and the utter disregard for the will of the American people. Elections have consequences, and we won’t forget those who promised to hold firm against government funding of abortion, but caved at the last minute in exchange for a non-binding executive order promised by the most pro-abortion president to ever occupy the White House.

All along we’ve said that we want real health care reform, but this isn’t it. We mustn’t be discouraged now. We must look to November when our goal will be to rebuke big government’s power grab, reject this unwanted “transformation” of America, and repeal dangerous portions of Obamacare that will bury us under more Big Government control.

This is just the beginning of our efforts to take back our country. Consider yesterday’s vote a clarion call and a spur to action. We will not let America sink into further debt without a fight. We will not abandon the American dream to government dependency, fewer freedoms and less opportunity. Change is made at the ballot box. If we work together, we can renew our optimistic pioneering spirit, revive our economy, and restore constitutional limits.

Stand tall, America. November is coming!

Your Social Security
by ELAIU
March 08, 2010

Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn't know this. It's easy to check out, if you don't believe it. Be sure and show it to your kids. They need a little history lesson on what's what and it doesn't matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts!!!

Our Social Security

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. He promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be Completely voluntary,

No longer Voluntary

2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual Incomes into the Program,

Now 7.65%

3.) That the money the participants elected to put Into the Program would be deductible from Their income for tax purposes each year,

No longer tax deductible

4.) That the money the participants put into the Independent 'Trust Fund' rather than into the General operating fund, and therefore, would Only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, and no other Government program, and,

Under Johnson the money was moved to The General Fund and Spent

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income.

Under Clinton & Gore up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed

Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month -- and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal government to 'put away -- you may be interested in the following:

Q:
Which Political Party took Social Security from the Independent 'Trust Fund' and put it into the General fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically Controlled House and Senate.

Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

A: The Democratic Party.

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the 'tie-breaking' deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the U.S.

Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving Annuity payments to immigrants?

AND MY FAVORITE:

A: That's right!

Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party. Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments! The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!

Then, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!

And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it!

If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will evolve. Maybe not, some Democrats are awfully sure of what isn't so.

But it's worth a try How many people can YOU send this to?

Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.

AND CONGRESS GIVES THEMSELVES 100% RETIREMENT FOR ONLY SERVING ONE TERM!!!

A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have. -Thomas Jefferson

Patent Reform Is A Patent Giveaway
by Phyllis Schlafly

EagleForum.org
March 06, 2010

Americans should beware when Members of Congress talk about "reform" and "comprehensive" because those words usually cover a lot of mischief. The latest example of this legerdemain is the so-called Patent Reform now aggressively pushed by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT).

Since we've outsourced millions of well-paying American jobs overseas, the one asset we have to maintain our American standard of living is innovation superiority. The United States is the world's leader in technology innovation, which is due to our private enterprise economic system, our constitutional protections of private property, and most especially our unique system of granting patents to inventors.

Other countries can produce things we invent more cheaply because of the pitiful wages they pay, but they have a dismal record of inventing anything. Lacking expertise in innovation, some foreign countries concentrate on stealing ours.

Communist China is the world's top producer of illegal copies of music, movies, software, designer apparel, medicines, and other U.S. products. Chinese agents stole or illegally purchased high-tech machines and systems, restricted electronic components, embargoed components for military weapons, and communications systems, in order to copy them.

Now that Communist China has become America's banker, China is flexing its muscles in a new way that threatens our economy and our jobs. The buzzword is "indigenous innovation."

China has promulgated new anti-American trade rules that prohibit imports of our products unless they are based on intellectual property that is developed and/or owned in China, and associated trademarks are originally registered in China.

These rules mean that U.S. products cannot be sold in China unless the U.S. companies give China their current patents plus their research and development of new products. This targets our most innovative manufacturing and service industries, including computers, software, and telecommunications.

The Chinese government has issued a catalog of products that are subject to this obnoxious rule, and the list is expected to be expanded soon to other industries. China's "indigenous innovation" rule will exclude many major U.S. firms from the Chinese market or require them to give China their patents and advanced technology.

Yongshun Cheng, former senior judge and deputy director of the Intellectual Property Division of Beijing High People's Court, stated bluntly that the proposed U.S. patent bill is bad news for American innovation and good news for foreign infringers. He pointed out that the bill "is friendlier to the infringers than to the patentees in general as it will make the patent less reliable, easier to be challenged, and cheaper to be infringed."

President Obama has promised that exports are the key to our recovery from the current recession. But China's "China First" policy drives a dagger into our hope for more exports. Free trade now means free to China.

Nineteen U.S. trade associations, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers, and the Business Roundtable, signed a joint letter to six Obama Administration agencies calling China's behavior "alarming." The letter warns that this rule poses "an immediate danger to U.S. companies" and to their "ability to create jobs here at home."

The longtime consensus among government and business elites has been that as China became richer, its interests would become more like ours. It didn't work out that way because China is a Communist totalitarian country striving for military and economic superiority.

Our American patent system is a precious American property right which the Founding Fathers put into the U.S. Constitution even before they added freedom of religion and speech. The inventor's exclusive right to his discovery for limited times was unique in 1787; it still is unique, and 220 years of experience have proved it is the world's best system because the overwhelming majority of great inventions are American.

Our successful system is under attack not only by the foreigners who want to steal our innovations, but also by some big corporations. Most of our breakthrough inventions have come, not from big corporations, but from independent inventors and small companies.

The big corporations, however, have the lobbyists and the lawyers, and they are breathing hard on Congress to change our patent law to make it easier to challenge the patents granted to small inventors. The big corporations want to challenge a patent after it is issued (known as post-grant review), thereby delaying for many years the inventor's ability to use his own invention and forcing him to spend a fortune on litigation.

Congress should hold a new hearing to listen to the views of real inventors. We also want to hear what the Obama Administration and Congress will do to protect U.S. innovation, inventors and small businesses from Chinese theft and arrogant attempts to force us to give away all our patents.

How Long Before You Wake Up, Politicos?
by bkt
February 25, 2010

I'm going to write today about a very somber subject. It will be, as it usually is here in one form or another, about math.

First, some background. If you believe that we have "escaped" from the mess that gripped this nation in 2008 and 2009, or that said mess "suddenly appeared" and "nobody saw it coming", stop reading now and have your Thorazine dosage checked. It's way off.

Assuming you accept the truth - that this mess was 20 year or more in the making, that it involved creating credit (that is, debt) which the debtor could never pay, and that it still exists because our government policy has been to extend, pretend and allow lies that should be considered accounting fraud and result in prison sentences, then you're on the right page to understand the rest of this missive. Again, if not, go check your Thorazine dosage.

Yes, I know all about the stock market rally from last March. I know all about the claimed GDP "improvement." But I also know that we got both by adding more than $2 trillion in debt to the United States - or roughly 14% of GDP - over the space of the last 18 months. That's about 10% of GDP annualized, and incidentally, a 10% GDP contraction is the common economist's definition of an Economic Depression.

So let's cut the crap - we are in a Depression right now. We are pretending we are not, just like you can pretend you didn't really lose your job so long as your credit card does not reach its limit. We have been in that depression for about 18 months and there is no evidence that we will exit it, as we have yet to find a way to pull back the deficit spending without an instantaneous collapse in the economy.

Yet at some point we must and will stop. We will either do so of our own volition, or we will do so when the cost of borrowing skyrockets, as others get tired of funding our profligacy. If we attempt to "print" our way out of it the cost of petroleum products will shoot the moon and destroy our economy anyway.

You haven't seen the half of what happened though - not yet. It appears that AIG - the company we have bailed out (thus far) to the tune of some $100 billion plus, in fact isn't done. It appears they may have written credit protection on Greece. If this allegation by the German equivalent to The New York Times is true Americans are going to be asked to pay billions of dollars - or more likely, hundreds of billions (since Greece is almost certainly not the only place - try Spain, Portugal, Ireland, etc) to bail out a bunch of FOREIGN NATIONS.

Do you both think Americans can and will pay that bill? A bill that has been forced on us, and yet benefits not The United States economy, but foreigners?

Wars - big wars - start over much less, my friends.

Oh, and let's not forget - some 30% of Greece's workers went out on strike to protest their "austerity measures." That's right - one in three.

The Fed and our fabulous Treasury Secretary already gave tens of billions of our hard-earned money to foreign banks to prop them up via AIG. That was just a down payment; now we all get to - quite literally - buy all their houses over in Europe. They get to keep living in them.

If you do not believe it is going to get much worse than it is now, economically and otherwise, you once again need to go have that Thorazine dosage adjusted.

A recent Rasmussen poll disclosed that only 21% of the voters in this country believe that the government enjoys the consent of the governed. Put another way, only 21% of the voters in this nation consent to what Washington is doing.

More ominously, 61% say the government does NOT have consent. The remainder (18%) are not sure.

May I remind you that in 1776 less than that 21% of the population (19%, actually) were loyal to Britain?

If you do not believe this nation is wound tighter than a clock spring, you need to have that Thorazine dosage checked again.

You are in denial.

After denial comes anger, then bargaining, and finally acceptance.

Let's not do anger on a mass scale in this country, ok?

Neither I or my daughter will appreciate it if it happens; shall we skip that and go right to "acceptance"?

Let's assume your answer is "yes."

Now let's talk numbers.

There are approximately 150,000 federally-attached law enforcement personnel. Another 750,000, roughly, state and local cops are employed by our various government arms. Of those various officers well more than half sit behind a desk and haven't left one gram of shoe leather on a street or in a cruiser in the last year. The majority of you fire your weapons for periodic qualification and they have never been warm or dirty besides. You've never faced death, you've never had a weapon pointed at you in anger, and you've never drawn your service weapon in the line of duty. Those are facts.

Now consider the "bad side" of America. The Justice Department estimates there are at least one million gang members - active gang members - in America. These people, mostly young males, have nearly all drawn or fired weapons in anger. They are responsible for more than three quarters of all crime in this country, and some eight out of ten violent crimes. Those gang members have families - younger males who are "coming up", "friends" (if you can call a murderous thug a friend) and others. Between all of those "loosely attached" folks and the hard-core inner circle itself we probably have somewhere between 5 and 10 million people in this nation who, given the wrong sort of provocation, might decide that "Zombieland" wasn't just a movie.

Our politicians created most of these monsters so the "finest" would have something to do. A nearly-100-year obsession with what consenting adults put in their bodies is largely responsible for this, and an intentional policy of allowing an effective invasion of illegal aliens over our southern border provides some the most-violent core of this group. The illegal drug trade has fueled international wars, international gangs, and virtually all of the organized violent crime in this nation going back to Prohibition. Essentially every automatic weapon in the hands of criminals (and there are plenty of them) comes into the US through this same intentionally-left-open border as do the gangbangers, lies of this (and previous) administrations notwithstanding. Those of you in the Law Enforcement business may not want to accept these facts, but if you reflect on it you cannot escape reality: weapons, ammunition and other means of street thuggery all cost money, and without these drugs being illegal there would be no profit in it, and thus a huge part of the criminal gangland element would not exist. You've cheered on the War on Drugs as it has meant more cops being hired and more, better, fancier toys for you to play with, along with $200,000+ pensions (in some areas.) You've been fools and even self-destructive assholes for having done so. But that, today, is water over the dam - the bad guys are here, they're not leaving, and there's no evidence that the political class is going to suddenly legalize these substances tomorrow, cutting the source of funds for the thugs off at the knees - after all, you won't rise up and demand it happen. So we must deal with reality on the ground as it is (and as you have cheered on the creation of), whether we like it or not.

As I'm sure you're aware all of America sees some of our "finest", not to mention our politicians, in various forms of misbehavior virtually on a daily basis. A girl beaten on a train platform while uniformed rail security stands and watches. A young man who appears to have been executed by a different rail security officer, even after he was subdued, face-down, without a weapon and easily able to be cuffed. The infamous Rodney King incident. The false accusations against the Duke Lacrosse team that threatened young men with many years behind bars for something that never happened. Our current Treasury Secretary who cheated on his taxes, not to mention the chair of the House Ways and Means Committee who did as well (that's the committee that writes tax law, if you're not up on your American Government.) And now, in the latest bit of ignobility we're expected to swallow, we have accusations that a school district has been taking pictures of kids in their bedrooms using state-issued laptops that said kids were required to accept in order to pass their high school classes.

Here's the problem: We the people increasingly don't trust you, the law enforcement community, and we definitely don't trust Washington. It's not just beating a black man within an inch of his life, or shooting a prone, subdued suspect in the back.

Oh that's bad enough, don't get me wrong, but it gets worse.

Much worse.

See, our economy wasn't ruined by accident. These crimes of economic activity were every bit as destructive, if not more so, than the bank robber, rapist or even murderer is. These economic offenses have literally dispossessed millions of Americans of everything they once owned. They have destroyed the hopes, dreams, and lifestyles of entire cities, sent tens of millions of jobs overseas into slave labor camps and stripped off the wealth of our nation through the issuance of securities that were worth nothing, just to add insult (and yet more profit for these banksters) to injury. Take a drive through Detroit if you doubt me, if you dare, and are appropriately armed to defend yourself (you'll need the latter, especially if you're white.)

As I noted above the bad news is nowhere near being over. We're denying as a nation, as corporations, as politicians and as people. You've drank your coffee and eaten your donuts, but what you haven't done is taken the initiative and marched down onto Wall Street and K Street (in DC), along with the myriad bankers, mortgage brokers and yes, even borrowers who were lying and cheating at the same time. You should have broke out the handcuffs by the crate-load and frog-marched these people into the dock en-masse over the last two decades, but you didn't. You should do it today, but you won't.

I know, you don't make the laws and you just follow orders from above.

But you're who we see. You're "The Badge" or "The Squad." And what we, the people don't see is perp walks of those people who richly deserve it - who have in fact broken the law and destroyed our nation's economic vitality for their own personal profit.

Remember, ladies and gentlemen, no matter what branch of law enforcement you hail from, your primary oath was not to a person. It is not to your commander, your captain or your squad.

Your oath is to The Constitution. You swore to defend that Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. You swore to God and countryman alike, and your oath does not have a "use by" date at which point it expires.

Now consider this: the unspoken "social contract" says that the good guys go about their business without harming other people, and the occasional miscreant commits some offense, gets arrested and put in the dock by you. There they face their twelve, and in many cases subsequently do their time.

But what really inhibits the miscreant from his deed? Is it that you will show up and take a report after the stereo is stolen, the car burgled or the bank robbed, and attempt post-hoc to have them face the music?

No.

It is the possibility that he will break into or attempt to rob a home or business that has an armed citizen in it who is prepared and willing to defend him or herself. Armed not only with the ability to fight back but the weapon of familiarity of surrounding, said homeowner or shopkeeper might well splatter the brain of said felonious thug all over the far wall - in righteous and perfectly-legal defense of one's person (except in places like Chicago, of course.) The truth of this is clear on its face - those places where citizens are "restricted" (illegally, I might add, under the clear language of our Constitution) from mounting their own defense to rape, robbery or murder the bad guys pretty much take turns "at will", as opposed to places like Kennesaw Georgia which mandate instead that every homeowner have a firearm and ammunition.

One last thing to consider, and I will leave you be, as I have others to address this fine day.

If it gets bad, and I believe both history and the math says it will, who's going to help you? Do you really think the entirety of the 150,000 Federal Officers will come to your aid? Or will they sit in Washington DC and in their big black Suburbans (armored, of course) issuing orders for you to go into the streets in your (unarmored) Crown Vics and die in their place? Remember that the "bad guys" in such a circumstance outnumber you 10 or even 20:1 and not only are they probably armed as well as you are, they've actually shot - offensively - at other human beings. Unless you're one of the "bad cops" you've never done that, and few of you have had to fire in self-defense. Your only realistic advantage in such a situation is that most of the gangbangers are pretty poor marksman.

What's the outcome of such an event likely to be? Remember, we may distrust you, but the bad guys hate you to the core and would BBQ and eat you for dinner if they thought they could get away with it. If things get bad they might deduce - en-masse - that they can get away with it.

Let's face facts: while today we all count on being able to pick up the phone and call "911" if we need an officer to take a report on our stolen stereo, if the bad times come you will need us, not the other way around. We the people will, under such a circumstance, have the luxury of determining whether your oath of office has been faithfully discharged, or whether the only difference at that instant between you and the gangbanger is that you've got a fancy hat and a nicer car.

Most of us, should we determine that you're just the thug with the fancy hat will hide under the desk. We won't shoot at you - that's not our way. We're law-abiding citizens, for the most part, and while we will shoot back, we won't shoot first. But what we won't do is help you, because your time - your opportunity to help us prevent this catastrophe - will have expired. We will protect our neighbors, our friends, our fellow citizens.

But that's all.

You will get to deal with Zombieland, and in the back of your mind as you're literally consumed will ring that old saw you laid on us for the last two decades: "I just follow orders; I don't make the rules."

Be honest with yourselves: Is this where you want to be, or would changing things now be worthwhile? Would regaining the trust of the people be a good thing? Would replacing the large percentage of law-abiding citizens who now would spit on your shoes with those who will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with you, weapons facing the oncoming zombie hoard, be a good thing?

If so you have some work to do and there's still time left to accomplish it.

To the politicians who are reading this, your Thorazine dosage needs adjustment as well. The math is irrefutable. If, in point of fact, AIG has entangled itself with the European Continent there is no escape from what is to come. There is only destruction, and our only two choices are to cause as much of it as we can to occur there, by pulling the plug on these clowns now, or risk a literal World War. We may get one anyway, but if we bring the bulk of the damage here we'll be dealing with a civil collapse at the same time, and have no chance of being able to deal with the geopolitical implications. We must not allow that to happen. You must not allow that to happen.

We understand you give the orders to the people I've been talking to (mostly) up above. But you have less excuse than they, when it comes to oaths. You all took an oath to uphold The Constitution as well. You've used it as toilet paper, and that's on a good day. The rest of the time we see you gleefully burning it in the Wells of the House and Senate, dancing around the smoke and fire like some odd pagan ritual.

It's time to stop. Not because you want to, not because you fear us (even though you should - after all, we're your employers and can fire you) but because if you don't there won't be a nation worth governing left. You know who the crooks are - including those among you.

Let's talk taking this nation back.

It starts with declaring all CDS written against sovereign debt, directly or indirectly, void as contrary to public policy. Yes, that cuts Europe off from any prospect of a US bailout. So be it.

Next, all the banksters who were involved in these bogus securitizations need to be hauled into the dock. Now. William Black and his merry men sent over 1,000 people to the slammer in the S&L crisis. There are ten times that many who need to go this time.

Third, force all credit-default swaps onto a public exchange with published bids, offers, last trades, open interest and nightly margining. In public, where we all can see it. Either that or ban these obscenities outright. Choose one, and only one of those two options, and do it now. Yes, I know the banksters will howl. Too damn bad, and while you're at it, make it unlawful for any institution that does business in this country to transact in any way in any instrument that does not comply with that rule. This monster, as I've been writing about for almost three years now, must be caged.

Fourth, reinstate Glass-Steagall. Yeah, I know, the Senate doesn't want to do it. The Senate wants a nation that's worth governing though, right? We won't have one if this crap isn't stopped. Mssrs. Glass and Steagall had it right in the 1930s. Put it back.

Fifth, stop lying to the people - and this includes lies told through deficit spending. We don't have the money and can't keep borrowing it. If you don't stop we will find the "knee point" the hard way, at which point once again, you won't have a nation worth governing. Remember the four steps above - neither I or my daughter, nor most of the 330 million Americans in this country, want to see the "anger" phase. Our country is like a powder keg and every time you lie you're playing with matches in the room. Stop it before you blow us all up.

Sixth, we're in a Depression, like it or not, and we're not going to get out of it until the bad debt is defaulted and cleared from the system. Your job is to make that happen and get it over with. That's deflationary. Sorry; this is math, not politics. The housing bubble was a hyperinflationary event - one hidden from the people by bogus government statistics and outright lies. Deflation always follows hyperinflationary credit booms - it's either that, or the destruction of the government, political system and currency. You choose, but if you do not decide, destruction it will be.

Seventh, close the damn border and declare all the illegal immigrants as what they are - invaders. Tell them to either leave or will expel them - and mean it. Declare "LaRaza" a terrorist organization and lock 'em all up. Americans need the jobs and we cannot afford to have five or ten million thugs just waiting for opportunity in the smallest loss of civil order to swoop in and take advantage of us all. At the same time, drop your insane "War on Drugs" and replace it with a taxation, regulation and legalization structure. Yes, I said legalize - federally. While we still have time we must cut off the chief funding source for the murderous thugs who otherwise, given the opportunity, will feast on you after they BBQ the local and state law enforcement crowd in our major cities. Don't BS me or anyone else with your claims that such isn't a real risk - I don't see you strolling around in your fancy suits through the bad parts of Washington DC sans security details. Gee, I wonder why not......

Finally, to President Obama. You can't serve both the banksters and The American People. You took the oath of office too. Now you have to choose. Not only will you lose in 2012 (badly) if you don't start locking up the jackasses that got us into this mess but if you don't ram the above seven points down the throats of these banksters and others in the next couple of months your party will be decimated in the November elections. Some of your oldest allies in the Democratic Party are resigning; Senator Bayh, for example. Illinois' State financial health is akin to someone with terminal pancreatic cancer, and that's where you're going home to in 2012 if you don't quit being nice-nice with people who have played rape-rape to the American people and economy for the last two decades. You didn't make the mess (you weren't around long enough to do it) but you had damn well better clean it up, or what will be left of this nation is unlikely to be worth governing by the time your term expires.

Health care may be important but not until the above is taken care of. Fixing the financial system is the issue you must confront and fix in its entirety. Not half-way, not by compromise - you simply must fix it. The seven points above are not options, they're not discussion points - they're mandatory. All of them. Don't believe me if you don't want to - believe Charlie Munger, one of the wisest investment professionals ever to live, and, in my opinion, the smarter half of Berkshire Hathaway (with no disrespect intended to Warren.)

The choice is yours Mr. President, but the consequences will belong to all of us.

Choose wisely.

“Global Warming” More Like a Snow Job
by Sarah Palin

Over the last few months, and even again today, very unsettling revelations have come to light about the “settled science” of man-made global warming. With all of these shoes dropping you’d think every member of the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) would be barefoot by now.

One thing after another keeps popping up to further discredit the theory of man-made global warming. The IPCC’s supposedly definitive report proving the theory is riddled with serious errors. The organization has been publicly chastised by everyone from its former chair to the heads of the UK’s biggest funder of climate research and Greenpeace UK. One of the world’s top climate change scientists, Prof. Phil Jones, has conceded that there’s been no significant warming since 1995; that the medieval period may have been warmer than today; and that he’s had trouble even keeping track of raw data crucial to the global warming theory. Yet President Obama still seeks to create a federal office for global warming, and they’re still talking about mandating their cap-and-tax plan that's based on discredited data.

The Obama administration’s environmental extremism also shows up in its aversion to oil and gas development. A true all-of-the-above approach to energy would mean allowing oil and gas explorers to drill here and drill now because America has the proven reserves needed to meet our energy challenges. A new industry study reveals that the federal government's current restrictions on oil and gas drilling in Alaska and off the U.S. coastline will cost us $2.36 trillion through 2029. Think of the millions of U.S. jobs we could create, and how much more secure America would be, if we had a true free market approach to energy independence that allowed us to finally drill!

And though I applaud the President’s newly declared interest in nuclear power, it should be noted that he’s merely following through on loan guarantees authorized during the prior administration. What’s more, while the White House now touts the building of new nuclear power plants, its budget inexplicably calls for cutting funding to the proposed nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. A real nuclear energy plan requires a strategy for dealing with nuclear waste storage and recycling.

The man-made global warming hysteria isn’t based on sound science, and the Obama administration’s energy policy isn’t based on sound economics. If the climategate revelations teach us anything, it’s that we need to cool down the rhetoric and fire up our common sense.

The Ghosts of San Filipe Courts
by ELAIU

In New York City it was Brownsville , in Chicago it was Cabrini Green, and in Houston where I spent much of my childhood it was the San Filipe courts. These public housing projects, no matter where they were built, had much in common, mostly crime and hopelessness.

The San Filipe courts were a notorious public housing project that was built in 1942 by the Federal government to provide housing for the poor. As with much of what’s done to aid the needy, the results did not live up to the expectations. The place had a reputation of being a miserable squalid blight on the city. No one wanted to admit that they lived there. It was a place that rookie cops were told to avoid while it provided steady work for the city’s homicide detectives. It was pretty much considered by the local population to be one step up from Huntsville Prison, but with less oversight.

The misery of those who were trapped in the courts might have gone on to this day but for a change in policy. In the 1990’s the federal government decided that the monstrosities they had built in the 40’s and 50’s were just too much of an embarrassment and switched its efforts on behalf of the urban poor to the creation of the Section Eight housing program. The results are more or less the same just spread out over a larger area.

There is much to be learned from the failure of government housing. First, good intentions are not a replacement for sound judgment. Secondly if the tragic results that these government ghettos produced could go on for decades without remedy its fair to say that that they were more testaments to the ego of the builders than help for the needy.

Unfortunately the lessons were never learned by the invincibly ignorant in Washington D.C.

In that same spirit there is now a movement, under the banner of “sustainable development” to establish a means for government control over land use in the United States so encompassing that it will determine where we live, where we will be allowed to work, and where we can travel. The problem with so-called sustainable development is the same one that doomed the residents of the old housing projects, central planning motivated by the idea that there are some people who know better how the live the lives of others.

The latest round in the battle to scientifically husband the population of this country is a bill in the Senate sponsored by Connecticut ’s liberal Democratic senator Chris Dodd. S 1619 or the “Livable communities Act” would set in place the groundwork for a government stranglehold over land and water use that would be controlled by the federal government who in turn would give an account for its stewardship to the United Nations under an agreement called Agenda 21.

The agenda essentially herds the population of the United States into planned urban areas while denying human entry into huge expanses of the country. There would be places between humanity and the sacred wilderness where some human activity would be grudgingly allowed.

It should be said that no comfort can be taken from the departure of Senator Dodd. Those who are behind this power grab will find another cheap politician to front for them.

No president since Ronald Reagan has stood against this unconstitutional and unnatural power grab, and precious few in the Washington establishment understand its perils and are willing to stand against it.

If there is any hope to put an end to this monumental power grab it lies with an informed public who will demand that this affront to the constitution and the natural rights of a free people be stopped cold in its tracks. Maybe it would also be a good idea to remove anyone promoting this madness from government employment just as a precaution against future bad decisions.

I do not believe in ghosts in the sense of lost human souls trapped between this world and the next, but I believe I can hear the ghosts of the San Filipe courts. They are whispering, “Don’t do to your country what you did to us”

The Causes of Unemployment
by Phyllis Schlafly
Eagle Forum
January 08, 2010

Much has been written about our current high unemployment, but there is a strange reluctance by both liberal and conservative commentators to assess blame for the dramatic loss of well-paying American jobs. The causes are not only the general recession and the collapse of the housing market, but bad decisions by government and business that deserve finger-pointing.

Since 2000, the U.S. has lost millions of jobs due to outsourcing and insourcing. Those are euphemisms for exporting high-paying jobs to low-wage foreign countries, while importing an uneducated underclass willing to work for lower-than-U.S. wages without benefits.

The winners in this game include the corporate executives and stockholders who benefited by cheap labor, but the losers are the U.S. middle class. In addition to unemployment for those whose jobs were eliminated, the real wages (adjusted for inflation) for the jobs remaining have steadily declined.

Since 2000, the U.S. manufacturing sector has lost nearly 25 percent of our total manufacturing workforce. Many of those jobs have gone to Communist China, where toys for the U.S. market are made in sweatshops by workers paid as little as 36 cents per hour, and many white-collar jobs have gone to India where telephone operators can be hired for $1 an hour.

Leading economists are becoming willing to admit that their devotion to free trade was misplaced. Paul Samuelson, Nobel prize-winning economist and a dominating figure in U.S. economics for decades, faced reality before he died and admitted, "There is nothing in the theory that says trade is always a win-win for every group."

Dr. Jerome Corsi's latest book, America for Sale, is a superb explanation to help the public understand our current economic woes. He shows that free trade is turning America into a two-tiered country like many foreign countries, with few of the very rich and a lot of the very poor, while the middle class loses big-time.

The Sacramento Bee published an article admitting that California is already "a two-tier economy with Asians and non-Hispanic whites competing for high-status positions while Hispanics and blacks struggle to get the low-paying service jobs."

Dr. Corsi relates how the United States welcomed China into the World Trade Organization in 2001 knowing that free-trade agreements with China would be unfair to America, and that even the expression "free trade," as applied to China, is a fraud. China uses near-slave workers paid less than a dollar an hour with no benefits, sends us lead-encrusted toys and poisonous foods and medicines, and keeps its currency artificially cheap to unfairly advantage its exports.

The deceit in the free-trade slogan is epitomized by the way China and other nations blatantly discriminate against the United States by using a Value Added Tax (VAT) both to subsidize their exports and to penalize their imports.

The way this racket works is that China reimburses taxes paid in China by manufacturer-exporters, but imposes border taxes against American companies trying to sell their products in China. It's not just coincidence that the tax barriers foreign countries impose on U.S. goods amounts to about as much as the tariff that was supposedly abolished or reduced under the phony name of free trade.

Dr. Corsi explains that the globalists know that free trade necessitates regional and ultimately global governance, and that economic integration inherently begets political integration. Ultimately, free trade is an assault on American sovereignty and independence.

Corsi entitled his book America for Sale because a bankrupt business is essentially a business for sale, and the Obama Administration is spending our country into bankruptcy. The foreigners who hold so much American cash are ready to switch to a new global currency and use their dollars (before they lose all their value) to buy U.S. tangible assets.

The result will be that foreign interests will end up owning important segments of U.S. private corporations and public infrastructure. Corsi asks some troublesome questions, such as how will we protect ourselves against technological espionage if foreign nations are permitted to own controlling positions in important U.S. technological firms?

In Corsi's book, you will "meet the globalists" who are behind the plans to control our economy, destroy our dollar, replace it with a new global currency, and model our future on the European Union. When President Obama traveled to the G20 meeting on April 2, 2009, he proclaimed a "declaration of interdependence" and insisted that global solutions are required to bring us out of the recession.

Corsi reminds us that Obama's bailouts are not just a way for private companies such as General Motors to survive, but a way for government to take over management of our private economy. We know the word for that: it's socialism.

Michael Steele Must Go
by Yomin Postelnik

CanadaFreePress
January 7, 2010

Over the past few years, I’ve become increasingly upset at the way our elected officials, and even our candidates, have portrayed themselves on Sunday shows and in other media appearances. Their responses to real issues were without passion and their statements continuously rang hollow.

The GOP has always been right on the issues. We cut taxes on all income levels, have saved millions of jobs, sounded the alarm on the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac mortgage crisis that Democrats chose to ignore and, most of all, offered solutions on issues of national security as Democrats sat and twiddled their thumbs.

The problem was that none of this was being shown on TV. Media bias was largely to blame, but in equal proportion, so were the lackadaisical responses coming from our side. With that in mind, I had high hopes for Chairman Michael Steele when he was first elected. Watching the debate between the candidates for party chairman, Steele seemed alive, energetic and vivacious.

In the proceeding months, it was clear that we had a problem on our hands. The Chairman of our party should not be someone who agrees with the radical leftist agenda of Barack Obama almost one third of the time. The public face of our party should not be someone who lacks the wherewithal to identify, and then to staunchly denounce, the policies and agenda items that have increasingly become the hallmark of the radical left.

As time went on, Michael Steele increasing showed himself to be clueless on policy, devoid of ideas and bereft of a competitive political philosophy - this at a time when Americans are clamoring for one. Most of all, his organizational skills, of primary importance to the position which the party chairman is elected to fill, were shown to be all but nonexistent. As I watched on with dismay, I hoped against hope that Steele would grow into the job. Regrettably, this was not to be the case.

None of the above listed faults can come close to his latest misstep, that of downplaying our party’s standing and of deflating our morale with his outrageous prognostications on the 2010 race. That his comments were made in the very same week that the distressingly liberal Los Angeles Times admitted that the GOP is poised to regain control of the US House, and possibly the Senate, is troubling beyond words.

In the same interview, Chairman Steele also went to great lengths to attack every Republican within a 500 mile radius of Washington, DC. These amateurish tactics would be sad and counterproductive if they were the statements of a 20 year old political activist. When the chairman of a party makes them, they’re shameful beyond words. Chairman Steele, we have Democrats who are perfectly capable of attacking every single Republican while giving all but a free pass to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. They don’t need your help.

We are the Party of Everyday Americans, not of sophomoric political hacks. If Michael Steele is auditioning for a column of his own at the New York Times or for a position on some obscenely comical think tank, then he should not be using party resources or a position within our party to achieve those ignoble goals. Chairman Steele’s attack on our party’s morale is an affront to the American people - those who seek a clear and viable alternative to the insanity that is the hallmark of this administration, an administration that Steele has coddled when his job was to oppose it.

For this reason above all else, I call upon Chairman Steele to end his hapless and lackluster reign at the helm of the Republican Party. I also call upon all Republican candidates to demand his resignation with equal resolve and certitude.

I don’t make this call lightly. Upon Michael Steele’s election as party chairman, I wrote a column praising his leadership style. As a columnist, I owe it to readers to clear that up. As a candidate, I stand to be affected by what passes for leadership under this chairman. Most importantly, as an American, I cannot stomach the ineptitude of a chairman whose words can aversely affect the fundraising efforts of the only party that stands in the way of radical socialism.

The Republican Party is the party of Ronald Reagan and of so many others who seek to preserve the American Way and the moral values upon which our great nation was founded and upon which its future success relies. The farce that has passed for leadership under this chairman must come to an end for our party to regain its standing as the true and rightful voice of the American people.

It’s War, not a Crime Spree
by Sarah Palin
January 05, 2010

President Obama’s meeting with his top national security advisers does nothing to change the fact that his fundamental approach to terrorism is fatally flawed. We are at war with radical Islamic extremists and treating this threat as a law enforcement issue is dangerous for our nation’s security. That’s what happened in the 1990s and we saw the result on September 11, 2001. This is a war on terror not an “overseas contingency operation.” Acts of terrorism are just that, not “man caused disasters.” The system did not work. Abdulmutallab was a child of privilege radicalized and trained by organized jihadists, not an “isolated extremist” who traveled to a land of “crushing poverty.” He is an enemy of the United States, not just another criminal defendant.

It simply makes no sense to treat an al Qaeda-trained operative willing to die in the course of massacring hundreds of people as a common criminal. Reports indicate that Abdulmutallab stated there were many more like him in Yemen but that he stopped talking once he was read his Miranda rights. President Obama’s advisers lamely claim Abdulmutallab might be willing to agree to a plea bargain – pretty doubtful you can cut a deal with a suicide bomber. John Brennan, the President’s top counterterrorism adviser, bizarrely claimed “there are no downsides or upsides” to treating terrorists as enemy combatants. That is absurd. There is a very serious downside to treating them as criminals: terrorists invoke their “right” to remain silent and stop talking. Terrorists don’t tell us where they were trained, what they were trained in, who they were trained by, and who they were trained with. Giving foreign-born, foreign-trained terrorists the right to remain silent does nothing to keep Americans safe from terrorist threats. It only gives our enemies access to courtrooms where they can publicly grandstand, and to defense attorneys who can manipulate the legal process to gain access to classified information.

President Obama was right to change his policy and decide to send no more detainees to Yemen where they can be free to rejoin their war on America. Now he must back off his reckless plan to close Guantanamo, begin treating terrorists as wartime enemies not suspects alleged to have committed crimes, and recognize that the real nature of the terrorist threat requires a commander-in-chief, not a constitutional law professor.
