Skip MacLure 1944-2013

Skip MacLure 1944 - 2013

It is with deepest sadness that I have to announce that Skip MacLure passed away in the early hours of February 5th, 2013. Skip had just celebrated his 69th birthday on February 4th.

Although I knew Skip for only seven years, he became the closest friend that I have ever had the privilege to know. While it is difficult to come to terms with this loss, I feel honored to have known him for what was, unfortunately, far too short a time.

Skip was, unabashedly, a true conservative. Plain-spoken, he was not afraid to take anyone to task, regardless of party affiliation. He believed that the Constitution was the greatest legal document ever written, a gift from God to the people of the finest country in the world.

Skip was often attacked by the liberal left for his honest remarks. Although he shrugged off what were often cruel, personally offensive remarks, I felt hurt by them... for I knew the sort of person that Skip really was. Much of it was standard leftist rhetoric, but it still smarted. If they knew Skip's family and friends, for example, they would see that he was anything but racist. Having been brought up by his Italian grandparents, he endured the taunts of neighborhood children who called him "the little blue-eyed wop kid". It served to toughen him up for the future.

I could go on further, but this is not to be a biography, but an invitation to his friends and readers to salute a true patriot and a great American.

I have agreed with Skip's family that his website,, continue... alas without new articles from the man himself. I know that Skip would want me to continue what he started, and for the site to stay true to his beliefs.
Semper fi, Skip.

MaoBama’s Hatred Of All Things American Comes Home To Roost.

I don’t want to sound trite… or maybe I do. It didn’t take me very long to realize that my ‘truth detector’ was going off the charts when it came to Barack Hussein Obama, starting as far back as Obama’s speech in front of the DeMarxist convention in 2004, when he was still a state senator in Illinois.

He was immediately lauded as the ‘future’ of the Marxists in America. I had him pegged as an empty suit back then. Watching his ‘seamless’ rise to political prominence was suspicious to begin with. The uncontested ‘nature’ of his State Senate and US Senate runs, and the methods employed to obtain those victories, helped me to decide that Barack Hussein Obama was someone who deserved contempt, certainly not adulation.

I think that patriots in general are more aware of government and politics. We were beginning to gel as the loosely organized, but highly motivated groups, that eventually swallowed the 2010 elections whole. So it didn’t take long for the Tea Party Patriots, whose numbers even back then, 2008-2009, were beginning to swell. It’s as if we were of one mind, though greatly separated by geography and distance. We began to look for evidence of who this man was, who had just been elected President of the United States. We didn’t have long to wait.

We had no one to blame but ourselves, for many reasons that I have gone over ad nauseam in this column going back to the beginning. I saw Obama as an ideologue of the first stripe. He sounded like a Marxist, though the LSM already had their shallow intellects casting out cover stories when something didn’t look good for their chosen one.

Obama immediately set to work to accomplish two main goals. First, destroy the economy so that American citizens would have no choice but to come to government with open hands. Secondly, destroying our standing as a respected (and feared) world superpower, so that we would have ‘parity’ with nations whose peoples have never seen a flush toilet or had an understanding of basic personal hygiene. He ran from enemy capital to enemy capital, supplicating and groveling in front of people who wanted nothing more than the death or enslavement of our people.

He undermined our allies, humiliating them time after time. Overweening arrogance is his stock in trade… his only stock in trade. His trafficking with terrorist front organisations goes on to this day. His White House has been penetrated by Islamic radicals, or those with direct ties to them. His Homeland Security, in a direct reflection of the President’s own attitude, has taken on a frustrating and illegal campaign of harassment and humiliation of American citizens. His new ‘brownshirts’, under the leadership of Janet (basso profundo) Napolitano… these brave and loyal Americans have garnered some 450 million rounds of 40 caliber softnosed ammunition. I can guarantee you one thing. It ain’t for hunting quail.

Let’s talk about his criminal treatment of our armed forces in Afghanistan, and other theaters as well. Undermanned, forced into absolutely crippling rules of engagement in another war we are fighting to lose. Our borders are a war zone for those of our people who work them while trying their level best, despite a government who would send them armed only with bean bags against a foe armed with Russian AK-47s supplied by Eric Holder’s ‘criminal’ Justice Dept. His aim has been the destruction of the greatest military the world has ever seen. He and his ilk have nothing but contempt for the military.

In the darkest days of the recession, around 2008-2009, especially back in the days when MaoBama was getting absolutely everything on his handlers’ (whoops, did I say that? Guess I did) agenda, I kept writing that all of the things MaoBama and his DeMarxists were doing are not only being noted by the American people, it would be remembered. I further wrote that America’s notorious short memory would be in absentia… that Americans would remember, and that we were on the march to regain our country and our honor. And we marched… in our millions we marched.

Less than a day remains… that one day more to make a difference. We stand on the brink of a huge victory. Don’t stop now.

Catch The Wave.

You can see it on the horizon. It’s swelling, rising, as we speak… its speed deceptive, disguised by its magnitude, threatening to sweep everything in its path.

Remember when the DeMarxists wrote us off after the last election? American patriots, under the nom de guerre of the Tea Party, had just finished handing the left (and a few RINOs) a sixty-year shellacking, and one of historical proportions at that. The insane predictability of the left never fails to amaze me. DeMarxist mouthpieces started bleating all around the country… “That was it, they (the Tea Party) shot their bolt, it’s over, it was a freak occurrence and it won’t happen again”. Then they wrote us off. As far as the LSM was concerned, we never happened. I guess they thought we’d simply dissolved and returned to our plebian enclaves.

‘Tea Party’ became a term they’d use to demonize anyone who disagreed with the regime’s horse doo doo. Funny thing happened on the way to the election. We matured as a movement. We did anything but disappear. We didn’t have to import bus-loads of union thugs into the communities. We are the communities. We went from organizing huge anti-Marxist rallies to grass roots organizing in the towns and cities across America.

We sang the song of freedom, and America listened. We brought forth solid constitutional conservative candidates in local and state races and, wonder of wonders, we began to make inroads into heretofore solidly liberal bastions. Not so wondrous really. Harken back to the elections of 2010 again. That self same groundswell that swept so many enemies of freedom from office is out there again… and it’s much larger now.

Dick Morris, in his column this week, predicts a Romney/Ryan landslide. I’ve been hesitant to make such a prediction given Barry Hussein’s predilection for illegal and criminal subversion of the laws of our land. The signs have been out there for all to see, but I’ve had the impression that we had to pinch ourselves to be convinced that what we were seeing and sensing was true. Much of this goes back to the obfuscation and constant political smokescreens being sent out to cover for the LSM’s Messiah.

Meanwhile, sensing doom ahead, the Anointed One is sending out his legions of ‘red diaper doper baby’ shyster lawyers (thank you Michael Savage) to find any way they possibly can to bollox vote counting, especially in key districts in swing states. They will be met with Patriots, lawyers and poll watchers.

We have the power, the numbers and the momentum. If we sweep this election like I think we can, it won’t matter how many union thugs and progressive shysters they have. I just finished talking to three people who thought their vote couldn’t matter. I convinced them it did… that they would never in their lives cast a more important ballot and that this is indeed an election where their vote would count. There’s three days left out there for you to do the same thing. If every one of you just talked to two people, that would mean tens of thousands of votes for freedom.

Don’t forget the Senate races, either. We have an excellent chance of taking the Senate away from Harry Reid and his DeMarxists. This has evolved into a ‘turnout’ race.
Let’s make sure everyone we know turns out!

How do you think the spin is going to go when the LSM’s (Lame Stream Media) ‘Chosen One’ sails off to Valhalla, or wherever it is they farm out old worn-out commie ideologues? It occurred to me that the one group that could not find a depth of moral or professional depravity too low to plumb, in order to further the myth that is Barack Hussein Obama, just may have been in large part responsible for what could be a historic landslide repudiation of everything Barry Hussein and his DeMarxists stand for. The LSM created a myth in their own fevered mind.

Whoever the ‘they’ are that nurtured and shielded the nascent Barack Hussein Obama on his meteoric rise to Marxist prominence, which included the sequestration of all of MaoBama’s personal records from his questionable birth records, right through to his relatively meteoric rise from the streets of Chicago as a lowly ‘community organizer’ and shyster for the thankfully now discredited ACORN organisation are, in my opinion, the same ones who have directed the media’s fabrication of a Barack Hussein Obama who does not now, nor ever did, exist.

Obama’s ‘handlers’, whether George Soros, or some shadowy group including radical Islamists, which is something I strongly believe to be true, have put effort and money into the creation of the mythical MaoBama that is mind bending. Keeping in mind that it never takes much to set the dogs of the leftist press baying at the moon for one manufactured reason or another. I’ve never seen anything to compare to the absolute hysterical pitch that the LSM has gone through to shelter MaoBama from his own idiocy. I don’t think our Barry Hussein ever had a thought that didn’t come from Marx, Engels or “Rules For Radicals”… much less an original one.

Most of us learn very early in childhood that lying doesn’t pay and that if persisted upon, brings very negative results. There are some people who become very good at it, however, and make it a way of life. Ignoring the more obvious negative aspects of such behavior becomes second nature to these people. They are what are known as sociopathic liars. Usually glib and superficially charming, they are perforce constantly reinventing themselves to accommodate the story lines that they have created. The Lame Stream Media, et al, never loathe to bend the truth to suit their leftist agenda, have had to go to heretofore unheard of extremes in order to sustain the myth which is Barack Hussein Obama.

This is truly a man in an empty suit. I wrote some time ago that the problem Obama has is that there is no ‘there’ there. He’s a hard left ideologue with delusions of grandeur. The annals of history describe such people… unstable, volatile and extremely dangerous.

It could be fairly argued that the LSM is responsible for Barack Hussein’s fall from grace. They aided and abetted the creation of the fantasy world in which Obama and his DeMarxists reside. It’s the collapse of that house of cards that we are witnessing now. In any sane world Obama should be facing a political defeat of epic proportions. He is far more dangerous with defeat looming over him than at any time before. His party has no scruples whatever… ditto the slavering, pandering, ideologues of the Lame Stream Press.

There are a bare eight days until the 2012 Presidential elections…that’s eight days for us, you and I, to double down and intensify our efforts to ensure that Barack Hussein Obama’s political demise is indeed historic!

Leadership… What Leadership?

This has been sticking in my craw for a long time, but it came to the forefront yesterday evening when I was listening to Mark Levin speaking to Michele Bachmann on his syndicated radio program. Michele Bachmann has been targeted not only by the Demarxists, but by her own party. Folks, this is just sick stuff.

Her opponent in this race is a typical lefty, spouting ‘moderate’ themes only to turn hard left once in office. The difference here is that Michele’s opponent, Jim Graves, has very deep pockets with an estimated worth of somewhere around 140 million dollars. He has pumped enormous amounts of his own money into his campaign effort. Michele has no such resources, other than the money contributed by her supporters. She’s no stranger to competition, having won her last four congressional election races.

She’s also no stranger to the Tea Party Patriots, having launched a very large Patriot gathering on the eve of the DeMarxists suborning the law and the Constitution, to pass the economy-breaking MaoBama care without a single Republican vote, behind closed and locked doors. This lady is as solid a Constitutional conservative as they come. So why hasn’t the RNC and its chairman, Reince Priebus, come to her support? Why, in the critical state of Minnesota, in a key district, doesn’t the Republican Party march en masse to support one of their own? As of the latest report I heard, not one dime had been forthcoming from the Republican National Party.

Mark Levin posited that we need look no farther than the Republican leadership. Most conservatives, by now, have come to the conclusion that our Republican leadership is about as useful as sun-baked rock, and about that smart as well. Mark stopped short of accusing John Boehner of being behind it. I have no such compunction. John Boehner is no conservative… not even close.

I think our leadership stinks in toto. They started from day one with their lousy deal-making and accommodation to the DeMarxists in the ‘spirit of bipartisanship’. They signed on to lousy deal after deal, some of which are now beginning to loom large on the horizon. These turkeys have completely forgotten or ignored the fact that it was the Tea Party Patriots that not only won the election for them… we stopped them from getting their clocks cleaned. It’s time for a total leadership change.

Michele Bachmann is not the only strong Constitutional conservative to be torpedoed by this bunch of self-seeking and self-aggrandizing establishment Republicans. The Republican establishment’s time has come and gone.

As Tea Party Patriots we have a few bigger fish to fry first. Most of you have felt the shift in momentum of this race. I believe the momentum has always been with us, and that the results of all of the local and state organizing is just now making itself felt. We’re on the verge of a huge victory. We can’t let up now. Mark Levin also asked his listeners to support Michele Bachman if they could… even a couple of bucks can help.

A Breath Of Fresh Air.

That whooshing sound you heard, after the first presidential debate on Wednesday night, was the collective exhalation of the breath of every Patriot Tea Party member in the nation. We’d all hoped that Mitt Romney would at least hold his own with the ‘Anointed One’, whose brilliance, we had been assured by the Lame Stream Press, eclipsed that of all mortal men.

To my absolute delight, after the first few minutes, it became readily apparent that Mitt Romney not only had the effrontery to challenge the media messiah… he neatly filleted him… in a gentlemanly sort of way. It’s what we didn’t see that enthused me the most. We didn’t see the ‘milquetoast’ Romney that the leftover hacks from the Bushees have tried to create. “Oh”(wringing of hands),”don’t attack Obama, you’ll be seen as racist”. “You’ll offend the minority vote”. “Ooh, don’t do that, you’ll lose the women’s vote”. ‘Don’t do this and don’t do that’… and we saw the results of that kind of thinking all over the John McCain disaster in 2008.

I’ll have to admit that I feared that Romney wouldn’t come out swinging. I was delighted to see that I was wrong. Some conservatives were grousing that Mitt ‘didn’t do this and didn’t do that’… but what was overwhelmingly apparent was that he did plenty enough to destroy Obama’s worn-out commie blather. It wasn’t even close.

What was most telling to me was that when the debate started, I was listening to it on the radio (since I was doing work on the computer), then when I did switch over to visual… the contrast was striking… MaoBama clearly out of his element. No bought-and-paid-for audience of witless college students or union goons. No adoring crowds of welfare recipients. He looked like a defeated man. Could Romney have hit him harder? Sure he could. But I think he hit just the right tone for this debate.

MaoBama will not be caught out quite this unprepared again. But he is, as has been pointed out, lazy. He’s been pampered and sheltered all of his private and public life. What he’s trying to sell is a lie. Obama is the penultimate result of the Marxist movement in this country. He is their golden boy. But what he’s selling is evaporating like swamp gas before the march of reality.

It’s taken four long years for the blinders to come off of the American people. I’ve talked to a number of disillusioned people who supported Obama… whether to expiate the self-inflicted mythic ‘white guilt’, or because they were sick to death of the antics of a Republican government who behaved exactly as the Democrats they claimed to oppose. It’s tough to admit that you were taken in… sort of like being suckered by a carney hustler.

I have many friends who would be classified as ‘minorities’ (at least by the DeMarxists, because they see everyone as a sub-classification). They, however, don’t see themselves that way and neither do I. We are Americans first, last and foremost. That’s the last thing that MaoBama and the DeMarxists want to see… a unified and purposeful patriotic electorate. But that’s exactly what they are going to see in November.

The Conspiracy Of The Lawless II.

This is the eve of the most important election of our lifetimes. Quite possibly the most important in our country’s two hundred and thirty six year history, keeping mindful that we were fighting for our freedom then, and that this election is no less than a war to maintain those freedoms preserved for us in fields of conflict all over the globe.

Barack Hussein Obama is an evil man. Look beneath the false smile and ingratiating words and there’s rot and corruption seething away just under the surface. This is an extreme left-wing radical, inculcated from birth with ultra radical memes. Why be surprised by a snake when it behaves like a snake?

There are some disturbing facts out there that seem to be getting ignored in all the Lame Stream Media’s hype, hoopla and misdirection. In the first part of this article, published last week, I mentioned Janet (the Mustache) Napolitano. Her ‘Homeland Security’ has set new standards for intrusive deviance and malfeasance in office… while ‘securing’ absolutely nothing. Three hundred and fifty-one or more Homeland Security ‘officers’ dismissed for theft. Thuggish behavior, more in line with Adolf Hitler’s ‘Brown Shirts’ than an American agency, are the rule rather than the exception.

The contempt with which the American citizen is held is obvious to even the most casual observer. This is a definite reflection of the attitude of the leadership of the regime in Washington from the very highest level, starting with MaoBama himself. ‘Homeland Security’ is beginning to spread its poisons into mainstream America in ways that are far more reminiscent of the feared German Geheime Staatspolizei (or Gestapo) or, more recently, the East German Stasi… Random stops of law-abiding American citizens at train stations, bus stops and reportedly along our nation’s highways.

Recently, ‘Homeland Security’ showed up at a Mitt Romney rally. Screening for terrorists or a not-too-subtle intimidation tactic? Yet any person of obvious middle-eastern extraction will have them cowed and wagging their little stumps of tails like puppies, to ingratiate themselves while extolling the virtues of multiculturalism.

Has anyone, anyone at all, in our vaunted (in their own minds) Republican leadership bothered to question why civilian agencies require seven hundred and fifty million rounds of hollow point .40 caliber ammunition? To put that figure in perspective, US Forces expended some five billion rounds of small arms ammo in the entire war in Vietnam. That was in mostly ‘heavy’ combat in a period of eight and a half years. So what are US civilian agencies, who have as a rule little or no small arms training, going to do with 750 million rounds of hollow point ammo, if not kill Americans? Are they going to repel boarders at our national borders?

Add this uncomfortable fact. Barack Hussein Obama has steadily been garnering powers to himself which are not granted to the president by the Constitution of the United States. Is this because he fears the real will of the American people? We’ve seen the increasing reports of massive intent to commit voter fraud, from sources all over the country. What if that’s not enough? Will MaoBama declare a national emergency on some pretext and martial law to follow?

One of our affiliates is ‘Back To Basics’, an excellent conservative blog site. One of the regular writers there that I enjoy is Alan Caruba. His articles are well-researched and hard-hitting. I’m always proud and gratified to see my articles up there with writers of his caliber. He stated in an article he wrote recently (Sept 19, 2012) that America was being prepped for martial law by the least law-abiding president in our nation’s history. The implications are plain… martial law! The Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, the rule of law… all gone in a heartbeat, by the tyrant we all saw coming.

Alan states at the end of his article that Americans should march on Washington, should the unthinkable occur, and demand the removal of the lawless one and his entire cabal. Alan, you’re dead on and I couldn’t agree more heartily.
‘Live free or die’ comes to mind.
