Terror Plot – Another Black Mark For Britain.

Yet again there is a connection between an attempted terrorist attack and Britain. Another ‘home grown’ would-be mass murderer whose plot fortunately went awry. There is precious little good news in the press these days and every item regarding the so-called ‘United’ Kingdom seems to be another nail in the coffin of a once proud, honorable nation.

After World War II Britain was lacking in manpower to rebuild a war-torn country, cities and seaports having been all but decimated by constant bombing raids and assaults by the dreaded nazi V rockets. Many of the male population had been killed or severely injured during the conflict, a factor that drove the government to import labor, principally from the British colonies, later called the Commonwealth.

1948 - The Start Of Large-Scale Immigration To Britain.

Most of these new ‘Britons’ assumed roles essential to the infrastructure of any developed country, transportation being one example. The newcomers were happy to be in a country which, although virtually bankrupt after years of turmoil and still enduring food rationing, was a pretty good place to be after the total poverty that many had known before. Aside from the usual verbal and sometimes physical attacks from a bigoted few, they now had a chance to advance and create a better life for themselves and their children.

So why, then, does it seem that fifty or so years later, a sizable number of immigrants, or their descendants, would like to destroy a culture that afforded them so many opportunities in the past? In a 2007 survey, the results of which were well covered by the media at the time, it was shown that one in eleven of all British-residing moslems agreed that suicide bombing was acceptable. Doesn’t sound a lot, but that equates to about 140,000 people. If it ever really hits the fan, that many ‘fifth columnists’ could do a lot of damage.

The Legendary British 'Bobby' Amid Scenes More Akin To The Third World.

It is hardly surprising that Britain is a magnet to this sort of person. While the government is constantly blathering on about equality for all minority groups and preaches tolerance toward those of other beliefs, those they seek to help are plotting their, and our, destruction. This ‘religion of peace’ is using its mosques to recruit Jihad activists and spread the word that anything that stands in their way, or does not conform to their sense of ‘morality’ must be eliminated.

While the British intelligence agencies and New Scotland Yard’s Anti-Terrorist Unit are doing their utmost to protect the public on both sides of the pond, the weakness of the government and questionable affinities for organizations like Hamas are counter-productive. The Prime Minister, ‘Flash’ Gordon Brown, seems more concerned about saving the world in fifty days from a mythical threat.

Unlike many countries, England still has an official ’state’ religion, Protestantism under the Church of England. Regardless of this, the formation of Sharia civil courts has been given approval in some cities. The Church does not have such a system, its members having to adhere to the laws of the realm, as is only right and proper.

With the inception of Islamic Sharia courts, the pro-Palestinian stance of the government, the unwillingness to prosecute those who verbally threaten its citizens and promote civil unrest, not to mention the immigration bans on Americans and Europeans who warn of the threat of Islamic fundamentalism – I wonder why Britain finds favor with Jihadists? As they used to say on radio quiz shows, answers on a postcard, please!

Security It Isn’t – Lethal It Will Be.

ANOTHER magnificent performance by those masters of ineptitude in the White House and the Obama administration. I asked how in blazes the almost-successful skivvy bomber had not been placed on a terrorist and no-fly list (“It’s a Brave New World” Dec 27, 2009) given that his own father, a highly placed and influential Nigerian banker, had contacted US authorities (it now turns out to be twice) warning them about the radicalization of his son in Yemen. Not only that, but the British had yanked his visa and would not allow Umar Farouk back in the country.

What went wrong? Better to start by asking what went right…NOTHING. The list of spectacular failures is intimidating.
I’ve also written on several occasions that security (or the lack of it) is a top down issue. Hence, this MASSIVE hole in our country’s internal security has got to start and end with OBAMA. Naturally, his choice for Homeland Security Chief had more to do with hard left wing cronyism than a concern for the lives and the welfare of the citizens of this country.

Just so we all understand, I wasn’t any happier with the Republican leadership on this issue under George Bush. Realizing we had some ass-kicking to do after the inept and appeasement-rich Carter and Clinton years, George Bush at first seemed like a breath of fresh air after 9/11. At last, a president that got it! Or so I thought at the time. Turned out that he was just another big government Ivy League Republican insider, though with more gonads than Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton combined. Problem was, he couldn’t or wouldn’t control his own party which was then in the majority and when it came time he had to do so it was too late.

He didn’t really get it on home security either. Not where it counted. We got a lot of fancy sounding titles and mouthy platitudes, but eight years after he had been elected we STILL had no southern border fence. As a matter of fact, less than seven hundred miles of this TWO THOUSAND mile border is effectively under control to this day! George Bush’s cowardly knuckling under to the Mexican government, regarding the prosecution of Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, for shooting a convicted drug smuggler in the act of bringing several hundred pounds of drugs across the border was dastardly at best. Bushes ill-conceived outreach to the latino voting block, through a sort of soto voce approach to amnesty and the many Republicans who went along with it, was another of the BIG reasons we lost the House and then the Presidency, as this is as big a a third rail issue to Independents and Conservatives as the abortion issue is.

Janet Napolitano

Janet Napolitano is so far out of her depth as to be frightening. An extremely weak selection, she was and is an open borders advocate. One cannot help but wonder how many thousands of actual terrorists have made their way across what is basically an undefended frontier.
The DeMarxists are about to make their big move on DEMOCRAT VOTER FOR LIFE AMNESTY for ILLEGAL ALIENS. El Presidente himself will spearhead this FELONIOUS effort.
We have a Home Security department more concerned with picking on blue haired grandmothers in wheel chairs than in possibly offending some obviously middle-eastern type because of the INSANE self destructive non-policy of political correctness.
We have our glorious leader coming out with pronouncement after pronouncement about ‘his’ concerns for security and safety ad infinitum…and not one word putting the blame where it belongs.

Until this government AND the people of the United States clearly understand that this is a world wide war of extermination by Militant Islam this sort of utter nonsense will continue and next time that detonator will not misfire.

Obama: Unlimited Funds For Freddie-Fannie.

While the rest of the nation stagnates and one out of five Americans is out of a job, President Obama, in the still of the night, approved UNLIMITED FUNDING for mortgage giants Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac. The two entities that are probably singularly most responsible for the crash of the sub-prime housing loan market.

Although they were successful in lining the pockets of many Democratic operatives along the way, in 2008 Fanny and Freddie exploded, taking Bear Stearns with them and leading to the failure of many other smaller entities, as we have seen. Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Christopher Dodd were all beholden to Fanny and Freddie for substantial contributions. The US government has bailed Fanny and Freddie out to the tune of ONE POINT FIVE TRILLION DOLLARS in direct and indirect aid. Those are TAXPAYER dollars, it should be noted.

What was going on was these two quasi-government backed Corporations, being major purchasers of SUB-PRIME mortgage paper, were BUNDLING these dubious assets and selling them as bonds. This precarious process worked as long as housing prices continued to rise. As early as 2003, regulators were warning of looming catastrophe “in the unlikely event that the two giants failed”.

Republican efforts to regulate Fanny and Freddie were defeated BY DEMOCRATS, IN PARTY-LINE VOTES. Since their failure in 2008, the two mortgage giants have consumed 1.1 trillion dollars in Fed backing and thus far this year have lost 124.4 billion dollars which has had to be picked up by the Federal Reserve.
Now the treasury has removed the 400 BILLION dollar cap on funding losses AT THE DIRECTION OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, replacing it with an UNLIMITED FUNDING CAP! That’s like handing a chronic alcoholic a half gallon of booze and telling him to knock himself out.

THIS is Obama’s much vaunted fiscal responsibility?
Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac are headed down the same road as before and we have the SAME Democrats running interference for them. Wonder who they’ll blame it on this time?

Dissention Boils In Iran Despite Brutal Suppression.

Here’s another classic DO NOTHING, SAY NOTHING moment for our ‘do nothing of substance’ President, as the people of Iran struggle to throw off the brutal yoke of repression as represented by the Islamo-Fascist regime of Ali Khamenei. This week has seen more unrest and demonstrations throughout the country, following the death (it is reported) by natural causes of dissident cleric Grand Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri seven days ago.

Iranian police opened fire killing several people, among them the nephew of presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi. Witnesses said they saw a sniper on a building shoot Sayad Al Hossein Mousavi, 35. Later reports from a hospital indicated he had been shot through the heart.

Creating instant martyrs, the killings took place on Ashura, the highest of holy days for Shi’ite Moslems. The day commemorates the death of the grandson of the prophet Mohammad in battle.
The ongoing and brutally repressed unrest, which began with the disputed and highly questionable presidential election results of 2009, resulted in more than 100 deaths and the arrest, imprisonment and torture of over 4000 people has never been entirely quelled. Unrest has been percolating just below the surface. With dissidents marking currency, chanting from rooftops after dark, graffiti on walls and incidents of violence here and there, it is apparent that all it would take to spark more mass unrest would be an incident such as this.

With Iran’s radical Islamo-Fascist regime on their fast march to obtain an atomic weapon and its increasingly belligerent stance towards the US, Israel and the west, such unrest at home should prove to be an opportunity for us to support the freedom-seeking people of Iran in their struggle.

Except that we have a leader of no character or strength who will stand passively by, as this murderous dictatorship slaughters its own citizens in the streets and in the dungeon torture rooms of its prisons.
One cannot help to contrast this weak, insipid presidency to that of the great Ronald Reagan who challenged the arch-dictator of the Soviet Union to “tear down these walls”.
But that would take a man with the courage of his convictions.
Barack Hussein Obama has none.

It’s A Brave New World – Terror Attempt Won’t Be The Last.

First and foremost I’d like to thank Dee for a dynamite, insightful article. Judging by your responses I’m not the only one who thinks so. Dee will return from time to time with more perspective from across the pond. We have pointed out the horrors associated with the NHS (National Health Service) and the hopelessness of the people trapped in socialism over in Britain, which was once one of the proudest nations in the world on several occasions. It takes the perspective of one who has had to LIVE under such a regime to truly bring it home. Thanks again Dee.

President Barack HUSSEIN Obama was in absentia at any Christmas Eve services in Hawaii, not that I give a rip whether he attends services or not, but he IS the President of this JUDEO/CHRISTIAN nation and should at least make an effort to show leadership in this area and set an example for people of faith during these troubled times for our nation. Or should it have been a mosque…. just wondering. Even Billy Jeff did that much.

A pampered son of a wealthy Nigerian banker tried to murder 278 passengers aboard Delta flight 253 from Amsterdam.
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab reportedly used a binary explosive device which failed to detonate and only started a fire which was quickly controlled. Fast thinking and reaction of passengers and crew in taking down the would be bomber and putting out the fire were credited with saving the aircraft. According to some reports the suspect had eighty grams of explosive sewn into his underwear and the detonating device taped to his leg, which was to have been set off by one of the binary compounds housed in a syringe. The passengers and crew can thank poor chemistry for their lives, as eighty grams of high explosive could easily have breached the hull of the aircraft. Had the detonator gone off instead of flaming out, chances are it would have brought the aircraft down over US airspace as intended.

Police at Abdulmutallab's $2 million London flat.

Umar’s father, Umaru, reportedly contacted US authorities warning them of his son’s radical views six months ago. One cannot help but wonder why this man was not on a no-fly and terrorist watch list. He had previously been turned down for a visa extension to return to college in Britain, where he had attended school and was reported as an indifferent student.
So by the grace of God and the sloppiness or ineptitude of the bomber, another in-flight catastrophe was averted.

With an Obama administration more interested in appeasement and dealing with these international terrorist networks as some sort of annoying legal problem, instead of the world wide war against the west and Israel by militant Islam, we can expect much, much more of this type of terrorist attempt. As lame appearing as it was it may only be a diversion. From what, you say? No one knows, but one thing is for sure, things are never as they appear with these people.

Obama’s approach is Carter and Clintonesque at best… and we SAW what that got us. With his observed affinity for all things Muslim I just don’t trust this President to do the right thing to combat the threat. His pacification and appeasement can only lead to disastrous results for us and possibly the entire world.

The US And Socialism: A View From The Inside.

While I’m away with family today, I’d like to introduce you to the lady who pulls all the levers and oils the bearings that make this thing work. Doing a daily column is a lot of work and my editor Dee is the one who gets it all done. Here is her guest editorial.

Living in Britain for a number of years has given me a perspective on current US events that relatively few can claim to possess. Readers of Drudge Report may be familiar with the frequent links to UK news items from quality newspapers such as the ‘Telegraph’ and ‘The Times’ (the latter, incidentally, was originally called ‘The Thunderer’ in its early days – what a wonderful name!), along with some from the ‘knee-jerk’ papers, often called ‘red-tops’ due to their colored header background. According to a recent survey, there has been a huge rise in the number of American online readers accessing and commenting on these British sites.

So why the increased interest in the affairs of Blighty from over the pond? Apart from the obvious connections of friends, family and expats, along with the sometimes strained ‘closest ally’ relationship, I believe there is something deeper – something that could help to save the US.

Socialism and communism (someone once said that “socialism is communism in a hurry”) are newcomers to the American political scene, at least at Congressional and, dare I say it, Presidential level. If you’re not familiar with something, there is a tendency to let it play out and see what happens first. The naïve (and usually younger) voter may be blinded by these Utopian sounding ideas. The more wary amongst us, often older with longer memories, will look further ahead and further afield to examine the effects of socialist policies. British newspapers are a great place to start.

The biggest impact on the individual is the removal of freedoms, many of which form the basis of the US Bill of Rights. Let’s look at the First Amendment to begin with. While it is ‘acceptable’ to criticize the Christian churches or Israel, any public criticism of Islam could find you charged with anything from racism to inciting hatred, amongst various other public disorder offenses. This is in a country that fought valiantly in the twentieth century against the national socialists for the rights of Jews and other minorities, the nazi doctrine sharing much in common with that of jihad.

It was this freedom of expression that managed to get Michael Savage and Geert Wilders banned from the UK. The UK government finally backed down in the case of the latter. Well, it’s pretty difficult to ban someone from an EU country when they have a ‘free movement’ passport. That is, of course, unless the person commits a crime. Wilders’ only crime was speaking his mind, thoughts which the Westminster socialists did not like.

Geert Wilders

This hypocrisy of the left channels down to education, where establishments have been instructed not to liaise with Israeli institutions. Is that any surprise when there are Members of Parliament who openly support terrorist organizations like Hamas? George Galloway was challenged on this point a couple of years ago by talk radio host Rusty Humphries. When the questions got too hot to handle, Galloway called security to remove Humphries from the building. That of course sums up the attitude of a left-wing government – they are NOT answerable to the people.

George Galloway

Of course, control of the media is an important factor to the left (watch out for the fairness doctrine coming down the pike!).
The BBC, Auntie Beeb as she has been affectionately known in Britain, has become Nanny Beeb, the official organ of the nanny state. For decades, it was respected for factual coverage of news and current affairs. Its entertainment output was the envy of broadcasters worldwide, high quality period dramas being one of its hallmarks. While the quality of programing has deteriorated and its ‘factual’ programs become ever more left-leaning, the compulsory license fee (tax, basically) increases annually. For $227 a year, you can enjoy programs that espouse the dangers of global warming, the plight of Palestinians (but not the Israelis who were bombarded by their rockets), soap operas that make juvenile drunkenness and drug abuse look acceptable, not to mention children’s entertainment with not-so-hidden political messages.

I saw an episode of Doctor Who, produced by the BBC, on the SyFy channel recently. That’s not a misprint – they changed the name from Sci-Fi for copyright reasons! It involved the Doctor and his equally provincial-English speaking assistant (Oxford English is frowned upon these days, which is probably why people like Stuart Varney took their eloquence to the US) arriving millions of years in the future. When asked by his assistant how the Doctor knew that a building was a hospital, he replied “The green crescent, the universal symbol for a hospital”. Not a red cross, not a Star of David or the snake and staff, but a green crescent. This is only one example.

So what does the British taxpayer get for their hard-earned bucks? Those who decide to work, that is, rather than those who ‘play the system’ for welfare benefits, that can be financially better off than if they were employed. A police force that has no teeth, who might attend a 911 call “within an hour”, which is the standard control center reply. A police department that tells a supermarket manager (of my acquaintance) that their time was being wasted for attending a shoplifting incident. A system of law and order where a person can get incarcerated for a longer period for possessing a weapon in their home for personal defense, than a person who inflicts serious injuries on an innocent member of the public. Considering the fact that Britain is a ‘gun-free’ society, the rising number of shootings in public places is something to worry about. Proves the point that the bad guys will always get guns – leaving the innocent, law-abiding folks defenseless.

I guess it keeps the health service busy, what’s left of it. A gunshot wound would put someone at the front of the line, no mean feat when it can take three weeks to get a doctor’s appointment, a year to see a specialist for a serious shoulder injury (both of these are my personal experiences), eighteen months for cataract surgery, or years for hip surgery. I know a guy who hobbles around at work all day that has been waiting over two years for surgery. I have nothing but praise for the medical professionals that I have personally encountered. They are overworked, underpaid (especially when compared to their US counterparts) and sometimes even physically abused. But they are like the crew of a sinking ship – no matter how good their seafaring skills, if the hull is seriously flawed there is nothing on Earth that will stop it going down! Free health service? Hardly! More and more tax money is being pumped in every year, with nothing to show for it. You’ll see soon enough with Obamacare.

There you have it, folks. A little taste of what is to come in the Socialist States of America. Enjoy what freedoms you have left while you can. Of course it can be reversed, in the US at least. The disease has taken root in Britain and people get used to it, it is all the younger generation have ever known. It would take a major revolution to change British society now and quite frankly there seems to be no-one on the horizon up to the job. The last hope, in the form of the Conservative party, seem more interested in kowtowing to the voter than upholding beliefs – their support of global warming legislation is testimony to that. The name Daniel Hannan springs to mind, maybe there are more like him who put belief before popularity.

YOU, the American citizen, CAN stop this slide towards total government control. The longer you let it slide, the harder it is to pull back. It might sound melodramatic, but if America is lost, all is lost. Rekindle the spirit that said NO to Britain in 1776, but this time aim your protests at the Capitol. Start by sweeping clean Congress in 2010. The choice is simple. Follow the British example, where the people work for the government – or make the government work for the American people. Keep reading those Brit newspapers, it will give you the impetus to avoid making the same mistakes!

Barack Obama – Post Partisan? Purgamentum Init, Exit Purgamentum.

The Latin word for truth is veritas. It’s something with which Mr Post Partisan has very little intercourse with. There was the truth and it knew him not. A lot of people who should have known better allowed this political relative newcomer to overshadow their usually reliable common sense, so there are plenty of people out there to share the DUH! factor.

We also saw the hardcore leftist ideology of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid coming down the pike. Still reeling and half in disbelief of what they had allowed to befall themselves through the Republican ‘leadership’, if you can call it that. Still, they thought they had a stake in the game, deluding themselves and us in the process. Laughable given the circumstances.

None of us Conservatives out here have forgotten a single moment of the Bush years. We watched in horror as the Republicrats tried to out-liberal those who were expert at it, and accommodate themselves into losing on issue after issue. Very reminiscent of Barry Hussein’s feckless groveling to his middle-eastern brethren, only to come away with nothing and the DeMarxists getting everything they wanted to start with. Ergo: Bush/Kennedy and that execrecable education bill for example.

We watched Republican after Republican sounding and acting EXACTLY like their counterparts across the aisle, BLITHELY ignoring the mutterings, increasingly vocal and louder protestations of their constituents. The disgust of the Conservative base and the abandonment of the independents who had supported them, walking away in disenchantment, set the stage for the Democratic sweep to power in 2006, also setting the stage for 2008 as the thoroughly appalled base abandoned an increasingly out of touch and WEAK party leadership.

This persisted through the 2008 Presidential campaign with the selection of what turned out to be our ‘Bob Dole’, Sen John McCain, who actually never had a marshmallow’s chance in hell of being elected. In fact, the sole product of that campaign being the ‘discovery’ and emergence of one who will be the CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN party’s superstar, SARAH PALIN. Which is why they assault her the way they do…they see what I see…a bright, articulate, conservative woman ‘who gets it’ and connects on every level with the American voter.

Sarah Palin

This is all well and good you say? What does all this have to do with the truth and Barack Obama, his administration and the DeMarxist majority in Congress? Politicians lie. Unfortunate though it may be, we’ve come to expect a certain amount of it.
This BUNCH have taken it to a whole new level and language of lies and deceit. Barack Obama lies through his eyeteeth every time he opens his mouth. So do Pelosi, Reid and every single member of both Houses beholden to this bunch of thieves. They lie, cheat and steal on a grand scale that not even Joseph Goebbels would recognize – and he wrote the book on it.

The unforeseen consequence of this has been the resurgence of the American Patriot. Genuine grassroots CONSTITUTIONAL PATRIOTISM not seen since the days of the ‘Greatest Generation’. It is a tidal wave which shall sweep these criminally responsible politicians from the American scene in 2010…and correct a historical mistake in 2012.
Keep your faith in your Conservative ideals and the Constitution of this great country. These people are scared and they are about to become even more frightened…

Fee, Fi, Fo, Fumble – Obama’s Nuclear Naïveté Could Spell Disaster.

Correction to article of Mon 12/21: I incorrectly stated that Americans were barred from travel in Pakistan in 1981. The State Department warned Americans that travel in Pakistan could be dangerous. Pakistan at that time was issuing 30 day visas. I have been unable to determine what national passport Barack Obama was traveling under, although it has been established that he was then living with his maternal grandmother and her husband in Hawaii at the time.

President Barack Obama’s approach to nuclear policy is akin to a ride on Disney’s “It’s a small world”. It’s pretty and fuzzy, but IT AIN’T REAL. We started with Barry’s outreach program to Islamic fundamentalist nutcakes which netted him nothing and us less than nothing, unless you wish to count the encouragement, aid and comfort he has extended our enemies while they not quite laughed in his face. The problem with his approach is that other REAL MEN, our men, will have to die for it. Barry Hussein is in way, way over his head. Our never too rock steady and problematic State Department is only too happy to take The Anointed One’s lead and accommodate and kowtow their way in his wake, since that department is rife with anti-American types anyway.

Barack Obama

I’m sorry for all you Hillarophiles out there but she just doesn’t impress anyone. Obama runs around the world saying nothing and gaining nothing, while giving away policy and strategy advantage every time he looks cross-eyed down his nose at a teleprompter. She runs around promising to throw our money at people who hate us while trying to talk tough. That ain’t working either.

Meanwhile, REAL BAD GUYS with REAL BAD weapons are taking his measure and finding him wanting. More real bad guys who WANT those real bad weapons are also finding him to be a push over. Guys like these can SMELL weakness and are ready to pounce on it any time they think they can get away with it. Barry’s stated aim of UNILATERAL nuclear disarmament/reduction is naïveté carried to psychotic levels. Barry may be looking for a nuclear legacy to go along with the destruction of the US economy and the enslavement of its people to a socio-Marxist ideology, but all he’s likely to get us is a vast smoking crater somewhere.

While Barry is busy running off at the mouth, our enemies are out in the hall doing push-ups and the American people will have to pay the price.
That’s how it is in the real world, Mr Obama. God willing, we don’t have to pay the price before we can be rid of you in 2012.

Democrats’ Unintended Consequences – It Isn’t Over, Far From It.

First of all, SENATOR SHELDON WHITEHOUSE. You sir, and I say that with VAST qualification, are a SCOUNDREL and a BALD FACED LIAR. The people of your state will challenge you in 2012. Don’t think, you smarmy RAT, that you will be forgotten. 2012 just gives us more time to prepare to oust you.

This paragon of virtue put on his best TRIAL LAWYER’S FACE and spewed enough venom to wipe out a small city, saying that we AMERICAN CONSERVATIVES are desperate to ‘break’ Barack Obama. No Senator, we are not desperate because Barry Hussein is breaking himself and he’ll be out in 2012 as well. No president in history has lost the faith of the American people as fast as feckless, bombastic Barry. He went on to say that the ‘birthers’…birthers? Just what are birthers, Sheldon?

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse

Are you talking about American citizens who say they’ve never seen convincing evidence of this President’s eligibility to hold the office? I don’t consider myself a birther. Far from it. And I’m not into unsubstantiated conspiracy theories…they are boring and make rotten subject material. Still, judging what hard evidence I can find, and there’s not much, one has to wonder who vetted this man. Certainly not the DNC, they were too busy catching rainbows and taking orders from George Soros and his ilk, or worse. The evidence I’ve seen is not convincing, NO ONE of my knowledge has seen a valid birth certificate. As I’ve said here before, my kids had to be more thoroughly vetted to play Pop Warner and Little League than Obama was to become President.

Somebody please explain to me how Obama was able to travel in Pakistan during a period when travel to Pakistan was forbidden to Americans? Is it perhaps because he was traveling there on an Indonesian passport as an Indonesian citizen? Curious minds wonder.

Sheldon speaks about fanatics. Has he seen the video tape of his own spiel on the floor? Or witnessed the vacant-eyed rapturous expressions of the true believers? Right-wing militia and aryan support groups? Really Sheldon, get your stuff together and wipe the drool off your chin. No self respecting militia group would have anything to do with any aryan organization, support or not. The ‘militia’ benighted Sheldon is talking about are the American people. CONSERVATIVE PATRIOTS who resent the destruction of our Republic at the hands of the DeMarxist goons, in that slimy swamp you call Washington.

Got news for you Sheldon, news for you and everyone like you. America is on the march. You can’t stop us any more than the British could stop us in 1776, Sheldon. We are coming for you. We’ll be seeing you at the ballot box. Be very thankful it’s not a pitchfork.

Senators, Run For Cover – The Americans Are Coming, The Americans Are Coming!!

There are a lot of self-important and self-aggrandizing ‘power brokers’ in Washington that won’t be there come this time next year. It’s not just the tunnel-visioned hypocrites in the Senate that are in the cross-hairs either. The House of Representatives has MUCH to answer to the American voters for also.

Look for the DeMarxists to try to drive a wedge between the GOP and the TEA PARTY CONSERVATIVES. The facts are that the VAST majority of this country do identify themselves as conservative, for all the bleating of the lame stream socio-marxist media and the Maobamatons of the administration. The very people they have been crapping all over for years have been bulking up on the CONSTITUTION and the words of the FOUNDERS, the BILL OF RIGHTS and the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. They have remembered WHO and WHAT they are.

The Americans Are Coming!

All prognostications for next year’s elections are indicating grim prospects for politicians whom the American voter has determined are responsible for, and are in favor of, the OPPRESSIVE legislation now working its way through Congress. Whether by active or passive support, Americans are taking note and remembering. No matter if it was in favor of the massive pork ’stimulus’ funds the DeMarxists voted for themselves, or the fraudulent and UNCONSTITUTIONAL health care bill, to the economic disaster that is CAP and TAX, to the upcoming and soon to be introduced AMNESTY FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS – better known as the DeMarxist welfare constituent voter-for-life bill.

Americans have also figured out who and what was responsible for the economic collapse in the first place. The hysteria generation that worked so well that first time hasn’t done so well recently, have you noticed? The pandemic they worked so hard to gin up. When was the last time you heard about that? Notice the layers of lies they have piled on about the incipient environmental disasters we DON’T face, which are peeling away like the skins of an onion.

There is a new revolution out there and it’s growing in intensity daily. We will not be denied. It’s our America and we will preserve it.

Conservative Marching Orders 2010 – Make them Pay!

BEN NELSON SOLD OUT HIS COUNTRY, and he ensured the murder of potentially hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of American babies that will never be born. We were all fooled. We thought this man was principled. His vote was sold for guarantees for his state to extend full and permanent funding to everyone below 133% of the federal poverty level. The bill requires all states to do so. Nebraska alone would not be required to pay a portion of the additional costs after 2016. So the rest of the country gets to foot the bill for Nelson’s irresponsible cowardice and reprehensible lack of character.

Senator Ben Nelson

Harry Reid also porked up other Senators with YOUR money, such as that champion of amendment withdrawal Bernie Sanders, to keep him shut up about the public option… the cake topping the ultra Maoist wing of the party is looking for. While Senator Nelson was busy looking for political cover so he could sell out his constituents and his country, good ole’ Dingy Harry was making sure generations of unborn human babies would stay that way. Under Reid’s latest 383 page amendment, THERE IS NO PROHIBITION ON ABORTION COVERAGE.
In federally subsidized plans participating in the exchange, everyone enrolled in one of these plans must pay a MONTHLY ABORTION PREMIUM.
The Reid bill continues to defy the will of the American people. The supposed opt out option is a SHAM, because it does nothing to prevent the states opting out from having to pay for the ones permitting abortions.

Clearly, conservatives have our work cut out for us. With passage of this health care monstrosity all but certain now that Nelson has turned, barring a 12th hour surprise, we have to ensure that every single Senator and Representative that voted for it pays the ultimate political price for it.

Hillary’s 100 Billion Largesse To Third World Dictatorships – Your Dollars!!

Isn’t it wonderful? Mrs Clinton spending money we DON’T HAVE now, the way she wished she could have spent it during her husband’s presidency. Gives you that warm glow, like a bonfire at the State Department. That fuzzy feeling that all liberals know and love, when their ‘well intended’ programs create HAVOC that they don’t have to pay for, solve, or be held responsible for because their INTENTIONS were good.

Hillary ClintonHillary Clinton

Hillary’s speech said it all. Billions of dollars to countries where the money is absolutely guaranteed to end up in the hands of whatever ruling junta of the day happens to be in control. Electrical turbine windmills and solar panels that magically transform into AK-47s, rocket-propelled grenades, mortars and hand grenades to perform the favorite third world version of birth control. It’s a vision any leftist will be proud of.

Meanwhile, back at the blizzard, things got hot around the campfire at the Copenhagen round up. The Anointed One’s less than inspirational envirobabble was payed at least as much attention to as one of his speeches around here lately, which is to say not much.
A desperate and desperate appearing Obama managed to cobble together a half-hearted, very sarcastically received, NON-BINDING agreement of sorts and skipped out of town before a vote could be taken, lest he be seen to preside over ANOTHER loss, then flew home to the largest Christmas blizzard in Washington for decades. Uh, how’s that warming Barry?

Things in general just didn’t go well for the collection of losers that comprised the ZEALOTS BALL. Still trying to figure out what Nancy (Stretch) Pelosi was doing there, unless it was to convince the members there that they should contribute matching funds to her pork slush fund. Or maybe it was to give tutorials on slash and burn economics, something to which she can claim expertise. Then, Gordon Brown flying over there to use his vast intellectual vacuum to ‘create some movement’ in the Envirowacky process must have ‘em rollin’ in the aisles in Whitehall.
Apparently, the major malfactors in this international CLOWN COLLEGE were so proud of their participation, many would not stay for the obligatory ROGUES GALLERY portrait to emblazen themselves into posterity. Shame that, would have made a great public hanging.

Back at the Senate, Ben Nelson (D) Neb. and Bob Casey (D) Penn. were at last report holding strong against the illegal and patently UNCONSTITUTIONAL machinations of Dingy Harry Reid, who is planning a Christmas Eve kamikaze vote on the Senate version of the bill. In desperation, DeMarxists could still opt to go the reconciliation route which would essentially gut the bill, albeit giving them a very tepid victory and almost guaranteeing lemming-like mass political suicide. Many members may think twice and even three times before throwing themselves off the cliff for an obsessed and unprincipled leadership, and a daily weakening and FAILING PRESIDENCY. If you want to follow how YOUR Congress critters are voting, so you can put the blame where it belongs, go to Sean

Don’t slack up!! Keep going after them, even though many of the cowards have shut down their phone lines. Letters, emails, visits to local offices, telegrams, are ALL effective. Let them know WE WILL VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE. God bless you and God bless America!

Arnold – Pelosi, Stay In Copenhagen… Please!!

And while you’re at it, do you think you could keep His Anointedness over there? After all, he is so, SO admired by the royalty of Europe. So the Demarxist juggernaut got stopped dead in its tracks by Senator Ben Nelson (I) Neb. as he resisted arm-twisting pressure to the tenth degree, including the naked threat by the always creepy and smarmy Rahm Emanuel to close Nebraska’s Offutt Air Force Base. One of our strategic bases and a vivid measure of the desperation of the Obama administration that they would PLACE OUR NATIONAL SECURITY AT RISK for political gain.

But then, one might say about His Mightiness… WHAT’S NEW? Obama and his ObaMaoists are as sleazy and dangerous as they get. Americans have taken heed and really don’t like what they see. In mounting numbers, the groundswell of opinion against this blatant takeover of our economy and our way of life is rapidly turning into a tsunami of active political resistance.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has flown to COPENHAGEN, presumably to advise the Danes on how to destroy the economy of their country as efficiently as he has presided over the environmentalists’ deconstruction of California.

Governor Schwarzenegger

Governor Schwarzenegger

Arnold came into office with a mandate from the people of California to straighten out the fiscal and regulatory nightmare that is Sacramento. A political cesspool second only to Washville in sleazy pork and corruption. What we got was Arnie getting his wrist slapped and then running behind his wife’s hard-left political apron strings, including buying into the entire pseudo-science of runaway environmental regulatory nazism. His cowardly ineptitude has taken a bad situation and turned it critical by any measure you’d care to use. Businesses failing, leaving the state, hundreds of thousands out of work and unemployment ranging from 12.5% to as high as 40% in the Great Central Valley.
PLEASE, ARNOLD! Stay in Copenhagen.While you’re at it, keep the San Francisco treat with you.

Nancy Pelosi ( she of the stapled eyelids ) presided over the expenditure of 1.5 trillion dollars of pork-laden pseudo dollars last week, then just to make sure the record would stand she added another 155 billion non-existent dollars, also heavily greased with pork to it. PLEASE keep her there too.

The house has adjourned for Christmas. They call it the HOLIDAYS. This is another priceless opportunity to nail these people in their district offices and give them hell!! Don’t think Ben Nelson’s resistance would have occurred had it NOT been for YOUR activism. Don’t let up at all. As a matter of fact, we need to pour it on all the more. I have a friend who is one of these guys who talks a good game but never DID anything except complain. Even he has gotten off his political duff and is standing up and being counted.
ACTIVATE yourself! ACTIVATE your friends and neighbors… Republican, Democrat or Independent – we ALL sink together!!

Media And Democrats Have Hissy Fit! – Republicans Finally Show Leadership.

Andrea Mitchell was beside herself that the Republican leadership should actually insist on the Senate following its own rules, forcing the reading of EVERY word of the almost EIGHT HUNDRED page Sanders amendment. It’s certainly about time that the Republicans found some testicular fortitude!!

Senator Bernie Sanders, (I ?) VT, introduced Senate Amendment 2837, which would replace the bulk of the Senate bill’s language with provisions establishing a single-payer Medicare-for-all program, virtually identical to the DISASTROUSLY FAILED, BANKRUPT United Kingdom National Health Service.

Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders

The Democrats and the lame stream media are sniveling all over themselves, calling the Republicans “obstructionist” and “mean” for insisting on the Senate following its own rules for once. Having every word read in public, AS THEY SHOULD BE, is the Democrats’ worst nightmare. You will recall that no one, but no one, has read either the amendment or the bill itself, as the whole process thus far has been behind closed doors, the public and especially the Republicans being shut out of the process. This is NOT democracy. It’s STALINIST POLITBURO CENTRAL PLANNING in action.

All this points out is that our so-called main stream press has completely abrogated its responsibility to the American people and has sold itself out to its DeMarxist masters. How does it feel to be the public relations arm of the Maoists, Andrea?
Note: Bernie Sanders is on the floor of the Senate trying to withdraw his amendment as I’m writing this.

Nothing can be more indicative of the effectiveness of what the Republicans are doing than the amount of complaining coming from the left and the left’s lapdog press.
All the while this is going on, the Anointed One is making loud public pronouncements about DISASTER and CATASTROPHE if his attempted SOCIALIST COUP doesn’t pass. Sounds very reminiscent of last January, when Barry Hussein was shouting from the rooftops that the sky was falling, in order to pass his 780+ billion dollar pork budget. It’s always a crisis with this guy, as he tries to panic the American people into following his pied piper.

We’ve been down this road before! The DeMarxists seem bound to rush to their own destruction, but can’t seem to see the handwriting on the wall. Such is the price of being blind ideologues. Point of fact, Nancy Pelosi actually sounds delusional, dangerously delusional.

Lieberman, Snowe, Nelson, Webb – Let Them Hear It From You!

Senator John McCain stated last week that he had no idea what was in the back-room deal sent to the Congressional Budget Office for evaluation by Harry Reid. Dick Durbin, the number two Democrat in the Senate, told Senator McCain he didn’t either. That ‘deal’ fell by the wayside, as Senator Joe Lieberman flatly stated he would join the Republicans in opposing any bill that would add 55-60 year old Americans to the Medicare rolls, thereby destroying a program already on life support.

In what has to be one of the most glaring exhibitions of legislative desperation in living memory, Dingy Harry promised to ‘drop’ the public option in order to turn Lieberman on the issue. This has been the signatory feature of the bill, which he stated only last weekend HAD to be in the legislation, and which the extreme left has insisted upon.

This, folks, is just like those old used-car commercials we used to see on Saturday nights on TV. With each ad getting more and more spectacular, all the while the consumer ends up with the same old clunker. Only THAT clunker didn’t threaten to break the bank and cost TWO POINT FOUR TRILLION, to as much in some estimates as SEVEN TRILLION DOLLARS.

So while Dingy Harry plays his version of let’s make a deal, and Barry Hussein is saying the world is on the precipice if we don’t get passage on a bill that NO ONE HAS READ, there’s a vast amount of arm twisting going on.
It’s like this. This is for all the bananas…there are four Senators who are pivotal on this bill that Dingy Harry has to have. Thousands of patriots have gathered in the Capitol mall to rally, and once again go into the capitol office buildings and confront our Senators with the FACTS. Over 60% of Americans are dead set against this health care legislation…America doesn’t want mandatory heath care – period! America doesn’t want government in control of their lives, their health care or any thing else.

Four Senators you need to concentrate on. Joe Lieberman, (I) Conn. His constituents need to let him know that they will vote him out of office if he votes yes on this bill. Ditto Ben Nelson, (D) Neb., Jim Webb (D) VA., and of course Olympia Snowe, (R) Maine. Your letters, telegrams, emails, phone calls and for those of you in range of the beltway visits to the Senate offices, all carry weight. Don’t kid yourselves that although they pretend to be bullet proof these people aren’t feeling the EXTREME displeasure of the American people. Come next November, there will be a SEA CHANGE in American politics of historic proportions. KEEP IT UP!! LET THEM KNOW HOW YOU FEEL!!

Obama! Porkuli Maximus – The Mouth Is As Quick As The Hand.

AMAZING. First the increase in spending limits that the Senate Oinkers approved, and which Obama signed on to, has the Larders scrambling for more and more PORK. In the same breath Obama is encouraging banks to issue more risky loans, for which he intends to use TARP money to back up. Once again in clear violation of the law. Our public debt grew by one trillion, three hundred and ninety seven billion dollars. Uh, that was last month folks.

Then, without a blink, the House approved the MASSIVE FY10 Omnibus Appropriations Bill, which according to Representative Jason Chaffetz, (R) Utah, provides massive funding increases for INTERNATIONAL FAMILY PLANNING, domestic family planning and condom promotion.

Rep. Chaffetz, “We are in debt up to our eyeballs, living on a credit card, and hemorrhaging jobs. Subsidizing condoms is hardly out top priority”.
“This Omnibus Bill is bad government at its worst”.
“This bill spends nearly half the discretionary portion of the federal budget on just six federal departments”. “It was debated for just one hour”. THAT’S SEVEN POINT FOUR BILLION DOLLARS SPENT PER MINUTE OF DEBATE!!

While on the subject. Federal employees earning over $100,000.00 per year jumped to a full 19% from 14% at the beginning of the recession. Not bad work if you can get it. This leads me to state again that in Barack Obama’s world the only growth sector IS government. It’s the classic communist model…diminish the middle class to feed the coffers of the elite rulers in charge of redistribution.

I’ll say it again. It’s a darn good thing for these politicians and their bureaucratic leaches that the American people actually believe in the rule of law…something our so-called leaders ignore entirely. If this was one of those third world ‘Republics’ that the left is so enamored with, we’d have long since burned the damned Capitol down around their ears…BUT WE’RE NOT. So we’ll take them apart at the ballot box. This bunch is heading for the what will probably be one of the great political blood lettings in American history.
Nowhere to hide Harry.

Iran’s Fool’s Gambit Will Be Their Undoing.

It’s as though Iran was on its own march of the lemmings. History has seen and recorded stories like this one before. Iran should have taken note when their arch nemesis, Saddam Hussein, was taken out in a matter of weeks by a first-world military.

For all Iran’s bluff and bluster, it should be remembered that Iran’s war with Iraq endured for eight years with neither side gaining significant advantage. This was the war, you’ll remember, where the mighty Iranian Army used children as mine clearing cannon fodder. They WILL NOT be facing a third world military when Israel comes after them, as it must. They have given Israel no choice. The world has given Israel no choice. Faced with a United Nations more akin to Hitler’s Germany, with regard to its attitude toward the Jewish people, and a United States led by a man and an administration of dubious character and obviously pro-Islamist.

Israel has long ago made the determination that they would do what they had to do to ensure the survival of their country. They also knew that they would have to go it alone. Iran, and any other middle east country who align themselves with Iran, will be facing a first world military of some of the finest men and women on the planet.
A military that has proven itself in combat time after time. A military whose skills have been honed in the crucible of the very terror attacks that Iran has been sending against them for thirty or more years.

The newest in Israel’s arsenal has caused a sensation among nations that, like Israel, are vulnerable to attack from the sea. The Israeli ‘Death Shark’ unmanned stealth craft is now operational and has highly impressed western military experts. With an anti-missile, anti-aircraft capability and its ability to lurk undetected off the shores of Iran, Syria and Lebanon it should give any potential aggressors pause.

But NOT the insanely self-destructive Iranians, who may have just signed their own death warrant with the disclosure of proof positive that theirs is indeed a weapons program and not a ‘peaceful’ pursuit of nuclear technology as has been their mantra. A technical document revealed by an Asian intelligence source reveals a program to develop a neutron initiator, whose sole purpose would be to actuate a nuclear explosion. There is no peaceful application according to western scientists.
Dollars to stale donuts this is not news to Mossad. But it strips whatever cover Iran had, and it is now readily apparent to even the most self-deluding countries exactly what Iran’s purpose is and has been.

Now there is no reason for Israel not to strike Iran…none at all…and every reason to do it.
Like the lemmings, that rush to destruction is all the Iranians have to look forward to.

Gluttony, Thy Name Is Government – Take A Stand Against Tyranny!

Some very startling, very telling statistics have come out about the nascent TYRANNY into which our present government would bind us. This is very spooky stuff folks. As if we hadn’t enough to be spooked about recently. Mind, this information is coming from the people who would DICTATE our health care. MANDATE what we should buy in terms of that care OR ELSE! Regulate the very WATER we drink and every stream, river and watershed it comes from. Mandate the carbon emissions from our vehicles, homes, farms, industry and bodies. Tell us how many children to have and how we will raise them, while simultaneously indoctrinating them to a cult-like religious belief in a non-science and sexually predating their young minds, starting as early as age five and teaching them nothing at the same time.

They continuously rant that WE should make do with less…USE less! Be satisfied with less. That we should be grateful at having more of what we earn and what we own taken for the use of this gigantic sewer drain into which everything pours. GOVERNMENT PRODUCES NOTHING. Yet it wants to take everything. We have a CONSTITUTION, the laws of which this government is supposed to operate by. It has been bypassed time and again by these power-hungry and self-serving politicians and is simply a term they use when they wish to justify breaking those laws further.

Sounds a lot like the old Soviet Union, does it not? As a matter of fact it sounds EXACTLY like the old Soviet Union. Anyone from the old Soviet bloc countries can and will give you an earful, they came here by the tens of thousands to escape those Marxist Utopian workers paradises. And with RARE exception these people have become some of our strongest and most loyal citizens.

During this, the worst recession since the dark days of the great depression, the one growth industry in this country has been government. With ONE OUT OF FIVE Americans either unemployed or underemployed, the Federal government has been gorging itself on the largesse it has produced for itself by the wanton destruction of our economy and granting itself huge amounts of non-existent funding through tax increases, cooked book accounting and sleazy legislative trickery. In a recession that has cost American homes SEVEN POINT SIX MILLION jobs, the federal government has NINETEEN PERCENT of civil servants making more than $150,000.00 per year.
The Federal Transportation Department had ONE EMPLOYEE MAKING $170,000.00 at the start of the recession. Eighteen months later, at the height of the recession, they have 1690 employees making more than ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS APIECE!! Yet the same government would dictate how much executives in the private sector should make. Can anyone tell me what any one of these bloated sand crabs does that makes him worth as much as the CEO of many corporations?

The count down to 2010 is on. Keep those emails, faxes, letters and phone calls pouring in. These people need to be stopped dead in their tracks… and God help anyone who gets in the way of the American people!!

Rip Off! Democrat Plan Raises Costs And Premiums, Slashes Medicare.

That may be why Dingy Harry Reid wanted to be out of town this weekend. A little tongue in cheek there. Harry is out of town down in Louisiana with Mary Landrieu, being greeted by a few thousand TEA PARTY PATRIOTS.

He and Mary are trying to extract a thousand dollars apiece from remaining loyalists at a fund raiser. Notice, Harry is NOT soliciting funds in his own state, where by the most conservative estimates he is running fully 10 points behind his challengers. In addition, voters in his home state are lining up unanimously against the OBAMA-PELOSI-REID socialist takeover, and almost certainly will invite Mr Reid to exit his office next year. Though there has been some speculation that Dingy Harry will pull a quick one and attempt to have himself replaced by his son, who is by all accounts Harry Jr. to a tee.

A US agency that oversees Medicare spending has issued a series of reports that indicate that, as opposed to the Democrat claims of savings and lower costs, the opposite has proven to be the case, according to the study’s conclusions. Republican Mitch McConnell stated that “the report confirms what we’ve long known. The Democrat plan would increase costs, raise premiums and slash Medicare”. McConnell said, “That’s not reform. This analysis speaks for itself. This bill is a sham”.

The report written by Richard Foster, the chief actuary at the centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said the increase in health care spending reflected the impact of millions of newly covered people seeking medical care.
The report stated that Medicare has significantly lower reimbursement rates than private insurers. Doctors, clinics and hospitals who rely heavily on Medicare patients for business, “could find it difficult to remain profitable and, absent of legislative intervention, might end their participation in the program”.

So time after time we rediscover Democrat doublespeak and duplicity. All around the country Patriot voices are raised against the takeover of our freedoms. MILLIONS OF PINK SLIPS are going out to members of Congress and as we speak, EIGHT HUNDRED THOUSAND petitions are being handed to members of the Senate. Do you think they might be getting the word? They had better. There is a political bloodletting shaping up in this country as has never been seen before. Keep up the good work! Keep up the pressure!

You Gotta Be Kidding Me…

A HAPPY AND BLESSED HANUKKAH to Israel and all our Jewish friends.
Speaking of Israel, we see that Iran’s Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi is calling for Damascus to join with Iran in striking back at Israel for the attack it feels must be coming within a month or so, according to Iranian Intelligence Services.

The Syrians tepid response to the Iranian call to action may be because they do not wish to attract any more Israeli attention than is absolutely necessary. Though the mental imagery of a military coalition between Syria and Iran is more like the Keystone cops meet Laurel and Hardy. The IDF will no doubt take the situation very seriously. Since the IDF has been probing Syrian air defense measures for some time, the least Syria can expect is the loss of their air force and their command and control centers.

The increasingly feckless Obama administration will make more noise about sanctions against Iran and then do exactly what the United Nations will do, which is nothing. The United States will also make a lot of noise about the detection of highly processed plutonium at Dir a-Zur, where the IAF turned Syria’s secret nuclear facility into so much concrete aggregate. One wonders had the Israeli Air Force not hit these facilities, would the usually inept UN have even known about Syria’s nuclear proliferation with the aid of North Korea and Iran. Traces of the same plutonium were discovered at the nuclear research reactor near the Syrian capital of Damascus.

As we have stated before, the convergence of events has been coming closer in the past few months and Israel must strike before Russia fulfills its contract to deliver the more advanced S-300 anti-aircraft defense system. The US has also been supplying Israel with more advanced fighter aircraft, utilizing special Israeli electronics systems. It is not known whether these are operational as yet.

Given Israel’s proven ability to slip past the best of what both Tehran and Damascus have deployed, and given Iran’s almost comical performance during their much touted defense training, I shouldn’t wonder if there weren’t some uneasy people in the defense commands of both countries.

Underhanded! Democrats Extend TARP To 2010 – Election Slush Fund?

Underhanded to the core. DeMarxists, who are seeing a decrease in funding as the party left wing faithful begin to see the many promises made by the Obama administration go by the wayside as opposition from the right increases, are eying the TARP and TARP repayment funds as a war chest slush fund, some fear.

The Obama administration’s approval of Timothy Geithner’s intention of extending TARP until Oct 2010, claiming that withdrawal of the funding could endanger the economy, has some Conservatives suspicious. The fund’s intent is in its name: the Troubled Asset Relief Program. It was intended to relieve banks and lending institutions of bundled asset and bad paper loans by law. The 700 BILLION DOLLAR program was slated to end this December 31. The plan LOST 41 BILLION DOLLARS this year. It was never intended for use as a small business loan fund or anything other than its legally stated purpose.

Meanwhile, Senate Democrats desperate to find anything in the health care debacle that they can call progress or a victory of sorts, have come up with another alternative to the ‘public option’ that they think may survive the scourging of the left wing of their party. It entails the creation of privately administered new government – run exchanges.

The hard left of the DeMarxists don’t care for this at all, so in an effort to offer a sop to them the DeMarxists would expand Medicare to millions of Americans over 55, thus potentially adding millions more people to a system already on the brink of bankruptcy, with a long term deficit of 38 to as much as 89 TRILLION DOLLARS. Plus, the deal STILL leaves open the ‘TRIGGER’ of a public option if plans for a new Office of Personnel Management doesn’t jell.

Sounds like a circular firing squad with the American people as the main feature.
KEEP UP THE PRESSURE!! It’s working. Don’t listen to the media, don’t listen to anyone but yourself.

One Spectacular Blunder After Another.

A lot of idealistic, well-meaning people put everything they had emotionally into the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama. As is now obvious to most, these fine folks have seen their hopes and dreams for the wonderful classless, carefree and colorblind utopia promised by the Anointed One crushed in the iron grip of the realization that he is just not up to the job.

Many, like myself, who were bothered by the sudden ascendancy of a man without credentials or experience, delved deeply into what information we could find about this man. I was stunned at how little information was available and began to wonder who or what was running interference for him. Of course when I vocalized my apprehensions I was immediately sidelined as being anything from a right wing gun carrying redneck to a racist. Redneck I’m not…gun carrying I am. Racist I’m not either. I took a troubled African-American teenager into my home and raised him as my own. He’s still my ‘brat’ to this day. I have a mixed-race daughter who is our family princess…I love it when they call me racist. My experience with that subject is that the ones using that language are far more likely to be what they accuse others of.

Obama hit the White House with as much good grace as any newly elected president has ever had, albeit he was only elected with a slight majority of the vote at 55%. The independents and conservatives having abandoned the Republican brand for reasons we all know and have gone over before. Many conservatives could just not bring themselves to vote for John McCain, though subsequent events have proven that to have been a feckless reaction. As bad a choice as McCain might have been, he could NOT have been nearly the nightmare Barry Hussein has proven to be.

Obama and his Marxist administration, along with his only slightly less Marxi-Socialist dominated Congress, took the country in EXACTLY the wrong direction at precisely the worst time to do it.
One wonders in retrospect if it wasn’t done precisely for that reason, to create as much chaos and destruction of the economy and the marketplace so as to make their coup possible.

It’s clear now and clearer every day that everything they have attempted has failed. Not just failed but failed abjectly. The ’stimulus’ that stimulated nothing except the government sector. ‘Jobs’ saved at a cost of over $200,000.00 apiece. A cash for clunkers program which cost $24,000.00 per car for a total of THIRTY THREE BILLION DOLLARS. The list of ineptitudes goes on ad-infinitum .
A foreign policy that may as well be non-existent. And a reversal on a clearly stated war policy that has our enemies worldwide licking their chops.

The American people have the right, the duty and the responsibility to go to the polls in 2010 and 2012 to correct this historic wrong. We have started, only just started on the long path back. Don’t lose heart. Continue to hammer away at them. Don’t let up for a second!
We are the AMERICAN PEOPLE and we won’t be denied.

Republican Leadership Had Better – Or Else!

Senator John Kyle told a reporter this, when asked what they were doing about the health care debacle. “We are offering amendments to make it a better bill.” WHAT?!! This is what we are getting for leadership out of our Senators?

They haven’t figured out, after all the fuss, that the American people don’t want any part of this bill? Do we have to dump the entire leadership and start over? What do they not understand about ‘just say no’? We didn’t ask them to repair the darn thing. We asked them to reject the redistribution of 1/6 of the nation’s economy entirely. Scrap it and start over using free market principles and tort reform for starters.

John McCain has so far been one of the most cogent and vocal proponents of scrapping the legislation and starting over. I certainly have my differences with Senator McCain, but he has been a stalwart on this one.

Our favorite RINOs in the meantime, Republican Senators OLYMPIA SNOWE and SUSAN COLLINS, are playing ‘ring around the rosie’ and may get dropped like the plague if they vote for this thing. They need another reminder of just who it is they work for. Snowe was called up to the White House to cozy up to His Anointedness over the weekend…one wonders what the price tag of her treachery will turn out to be.

We know that the bribe of largesse to Blanche Lincoln was THREE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS to sell out her constituents. By the way, she is significantly behind her challengers in the upcoming election polling. Arkansans are 56% against the health care bill as opposed to a mere 18% who approve of the legislation. More attention needs to be paid to BLANCHE LINCOLN this week as well. We need to hammer the message home in no too uncertain terms exactly what we expect and what we will do if they vote yes.

The ever popular Dingy Harry Reid is a full TEN POINTS DOWN IN HIS OWN STATE! This, after he put on a SIX WEEK media blitz trying to sell his bait and switch to the people of Nevada, who are almost universally against the health care takeover.

It seems the American people have and are doing their part in spades. It’s time the Republican leadership does theirs. We expect them to fight this bill…every WORD, COMMA AND PERIOD.
And what’s more, we expect them to win!

Squeeze Time – Senators Need To Hear From You Now!!!

I feel like a carnival barker sometimes, or maybe one of those TV pitchmen. I dislike repetition.
Hell of an endeavor for a guy that hates saying the same thing over and over. Still, it has something to be said for those of us who aren’t real quick copies. The Marine Corps has the repetition thing down to a fine art, and they have shown some VERY remarkable results.

It’s CRUNCH TIME, people. The Senate’s Dingy Harry Reid had the Anointed One (who graciously descended from Olympus) come down and harangue the Senators about the dire necessity of taking one for the team. For that is what it shall surely be as the debate on the health care bill, more aptly described as the UNHEALTHY FOR AMERICA bill, winds toward Christmas and the coming New Year, which a number of politicians in both houses have every right to be concerned about.

Aside from the millions of letters, telephone calls, emails and direct visitation to Congress members’ offices, there’s the little matter of EIGHT OR NINE MILLION PINK SLIPS sent to members’ mailboxes by individual concerned voters, telling these linguine-spined politicians that if they vote for that bill, WHICH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CLEARLY DO NOT WANT, we will vote them out of office. We can thank Joseph Farah for that bit of inspired pressure inducement. If you wish to join the pink slip movement, Joseph can be found on World Net Daily.

The Republican minority leadership has the Demarxists ducking, dodging and weaving behind the disclosure that the BENEFICENT Liberals have whacked another FORTY BILLION DOLLARS away from in-home care for SENIORS (“just give them pain pills”, Obama). That was something they’d just as soon American seniors weren’t made aware of. Turn up the heat! Let em’ squirm. These self same politicians are the ones who continuously vote themselves out of legislation with which they saddle the American people, though in all probability HAD NEVER TAKEN THE TROUBLE TO READ!!!
They wonder at the state of near rebellion in this country? They wonder that the popularity of the American Congress ranks right up there with trial lawyers?

There are a couple of Senators that need your gentle tutelage, especially this week or maybe this whole month.
Virginia Democrat Senators Jim Webb and Mark Warner are sending signals that they may waffle on this thing and vote for it pretending that it it would somehow benefit the American people. These politicians can rationalize their way around just about anything.
Let’s let these two guys know that we are preparing to rationalize them out of office. While you’re at it, don’t forget to let the other 98 know that we are hot on their tails too. Be they Democrat or Republican, that’s OUR house! That is OUR government and this is OUR country!!

‘Mainstream’ Propaganda Doesn’t Work Any More – Truth Reigns Supreme.

They don’t like it. They don’t really understand it either or they wouldn’t do and say the things they do. The ‘lamestream’ or ‘fringe’ media as we sometimes call them, are being increasingly marginalized by the nearly instantaneous transfer of information available to the average person at his or her computer keyboard today.

Back in the day when virtually the entire hard news output was controlled by major print media and the three large television networks, NBC, CBS and ABC, there was a virtual lock on opinions voiced outside of these increasingly politicized outlets. With a decidedly left-leaning message, Americans were hammered for decades with decidedly one-sided messages. What conservative voices there were on the right were marginalized and diminished as being eccentrics and somehow outside the norm of American politics.

The increasing preeminence of leftist thought in our journalism schools had really begun to be felt in the late 60’s and 70’s when I had returned from military service and entered college. The anti-war movement was in full bloom and the left’s grip on academia was pronounced. As a journalism student I had numerous clashes with professors or grad students objecting to the the conservative slant of many of my pieces. This didn’t do a heck of a lot for my grades in those classes, but even then I was stubbornly defending my position and pointing out the fallacy of the liberal Utopian redistribution of wealth model. As you can well imagine, I took a lot of heat for speaking my mind and standing up for conservative principles.

With the advent of conservative talk radio and the personal computer came a sea-change in the public’s access to varied points of view. The so-called ‘mainstream’ press, both print and television, had dominated the landscape for so long that they had taken a paternalistic attitude that the American people really didn’t know any better. We had to have our ‘betters’ interpret for us. Along with the information revolution came the ability of America and the world to access information from thousands of sources instantaneously.

America had not been sufficiently dumbed down despite the left’s best efforts. We began to see the fallacy and the inaccuracies in what the left was saying. We saw lies and stories created out of whole cloth to support their socialist aims. Furthermore, we clearly saw the symbiosis between the leftist press and their political allies in the Democrat party and in the entrenched Washington bureaucracies. We began to talk to each other and exchange ideas. Not necessarily the ideas of our own party leadership either, for we had found them wanting. We came together through our new-found information freedom fountain as never before. The Conservative revolution was born. The country awoke and its people felt the resurgence of hope that was birthed with the adoption of the greatest document in history, the United States Constitution, on March 4, 1789.

We now re-dedicate ourselves to the ideals of the Constitution and the principles of truth, freedom and individual responsibility that has made America the greatest country in history.

SEIU’s Andy Stern – Obama Care May Fail.

What does Andy know? Stalled progress on the health care bill in the Senate could doom Democrats in 2010 and prove to be President Barack Obama’s “Waterloo”, Andy Stern, National President of SEIU, the nation’s largest service union and one of the Obama administration’s key supporters, predicted on Friday.

Since Stern is one the White House’s most frequent visitors it begs the question, could Andy be aware of vibes coming from the administration? There are some serious issues in the Senate that SEIU types are particularly sensitive to. Issues such as the public option, which promises to be one of the watershed items that breaks DeMarxist unanimity. The so-called public option has polarized the Senate. It is a ‘must have’ for the hard left of the DeMarxists, but stiffly resisted by the GOP and ‘moderate’ Democrats and strongly opposed by the public in general.

The $460 billion rip-off of seniors’ Medicare funding is not going to gain the Democrats any support there either. This could become a huge issue come election time because the seniors, unlike the Obamabot youth, do vote and they vote in large numbers. AARP has probably just resigned itself to a footnote in American seniors history for the really self-serving sell-out to the administration, for dubiously positive short-range gains and a friendly ‘ear’ in the Obama White House.

Democratic Senators Ben Nelson and Bob Casey are among the strong pro-life members who will not vote for a bill without strong anti-abortion language in it. Add Senator Lieberman to that column as well. Passage is by no means a done deal and many Democrats are beginning to become really nervous given the lack of leadership from the White House. The painfully inept foreign policy, the flat-lined economy where it’s called a ‘triumph of job growth’, when there are only a hundred thousand or so new jobless claims and tens of thousands who have given up looking for work altogether.

The Patriot grass roots organizing continues and there are some large meetings scheduled around the nation soon. The Tea Baggers continue to hold increasing numbers of local meetings around the country also. Given the steadily declining poll numbers in all categories the DeMarxists are doing some serious over-the-shoulder scrutiny.

It won’t be the ravening hordes of the Huns, the Goths or the Visigoths that they’ll be fearing. It will be the American citizen with the Constitution in one hand and a ballot in the other.

Of Thee We Speak, Perfidia – Obama, Reid, AARP – Seniors Betrayed.

Nothing new here. Just concrete evidence of the DeMarxists stated intention to destroy health care for senior citizens, minority African-American and Hispanic seniors in particular. FOUR HUNDRED AND SIXTY BILLION DOLLARS in Medicare cuts, just for starters. These cuts will be used to fund other programs, including medical coverage for illegal aliens and funding for abortions among others.

The Demarxitons, in lockstep, voted 58-42 to strip the funds from Medicare in order to cover some THIRTY ONE MILLION ‘uninsured Americans’, of whom up to TWENTY MILLION may be illegal aliens.

As far as the doubly treacherous AARP is concerned, Senator John McCain stated it best when he said Thursday, “Take your AARP card, cut it in half and send it back”. “They’ve betrayed you”. Seniors have every right to be ready to fire up the tar kettles right now. Politically, this could prove disastrous for Democrats, as they desperately try to gain passage of the Senate version of the bill before the end of the year and the advent of next year’s midterm elections. The duplicitous AARP has given the DeMarxists the political cover they think they need, while claiming to speak for the majority of seniors which they DO NOT.

Republicans charged that Medicare is already in trouble. It needs to be fixed, not raided to create another new program. The Medicare vote went to the heart of seniors’ concerns that cuts from the program used to finance coverage for the uninsured will undermine the quality of their care. They are right on both counts despite the DeMarxists’ canned, thin and very unconvincing protestations to the contrary.

So what can you do? What can our seniors do? First, contact your local Patriot groups and find out what you can do in your neighborhood, region or state. Contact your local Republican district offices and do the same thing.
We have to act locally…speaking for my own state of California, when you have politicians who are more concerned with some mythical sea level rise, such as our Governor, rather than the
12.6% unemployment rate and lack of jobs caused by his fiscal irresponsibility, the crushing taxes and overbearing regulation that are causing jobs to exit our state wholesale…yes!…we need to start locally!
Add to that the continuing pressure we have to keep up on Congress, in particular the members of the Senate with emphasis on those facing election this coming year.

Dick Morris has stated that he believes we can win back both the House and the Senate next year. From his lips to God’s ears. God may need a little help folks…lets get busy!!

Nowhere Man In His Nowhere Suit Fails To Impress Cadets.

His Emptiness scarcely had time to finish his last yawn line to his captive audience at West Point Military Academy, before Donald Rumsfeld ripped his sheets and all but called the Liar-in-Chief just that in front of a national audience at the Center for Security Policy dinner in Washington DC last night.

Obama gave his ‘WE GIVE UP IN EIGHTEEN MONTHS’ speech in front of a decidedly underwhelmed audience of West Point cadets last night and did everything but give the enemy citizenship and welfare benefits, along with a withdrawal timetable for Afghanistan. Mr ‘Brilliance’ fell all over himself trying to let his muslim brothers know how much he cared and the rest of us how highly we should regard the great and peaceful religion of Islam. More Osama…I mean Obama in Fantasyland. Not only did his left wing Marxikooks not believe him, but he didn’t fool anyone else either. The polish has really come off of this guy’s chrome.

Delaying action on the requests for troops from his commanding officers in Afghanistan, something he has KNOWN was going to be needed since last FEBRUARY yet delaying for months making excuse after excuse, has placed more pressure on the troops in-country, putting them increasingly at risk and causing further deterioration in the tactical situation. His HIP-SLICK-and-COOLNESS lied through his eyeteeth by claiming that the Bush administration had repeatedly denied requests for troops in Afghanistan. Dick Rumsfeld, who has rarely spoken out since leaving the Defense Department, retorted in a blunt statement saying, “Such a bald misstatement, at least as it pertains to the period I served as Secretary of Defense, deserves a response. I am not aware of a single request of that nature between 2001 and 2006″.

Poor Obama can’t seem to get it right. His lies just don’t work very well any more. More and more often, statements that would have gotten by with the lame and increasingly fringe press are getting ripped, practically before they are past the anointed lips.
That’s what happens with pathological liars though…at some point they lose touch with reality and everything is a lie.

Cato Institute: Actual Cost Of Health Care Bill 6 Trillion Plus And Climbing.

Everybody has heard stories of companies and bookkeepers with two sets of books. Our Congress has put totally new meaning to the words prevarication and fraud. The House and Senate, controlled by hardcore leftist ideologues, have lost all connection with the American people.

We keep telling them WE DON’T WANT THIS..the polls keep telling them. Our visits to their offices keep telling them. Our emails, letters and phone calls keep telling them. And so far, with the exception of a few Democrats and all but one Republican, they have not listened. Or they pretend to listen, babble some garbage about Americans “WANTING” health care, and go right on with stealing our freedoms, enslaving our children and condemning us all to horribly substandard care such as KILLS THOUSANDS of people every year in the UK and Canada.
What we don’t WANT is THEIR health care. We don’t want their socialist mandated tyranny. It’s that simple.

When time allows I listen to Mark Levin in the afternoons here. Mark is a constitutional scholar and an unabashed Patriot. If you don’t have his book, “LIBERTY and TYRANNY”, get it. It is simply THE blueprint for the Conservative revolution. Once again, no, I’m not being paid for the endorsement.
I learn by hanging around with, and listening to, people who know more than I do. Mark was referring to a CATO Institute report by Senior Fellow Michael D. Tanner on the true cost of the health care fiasco in the Senate now. It’s IMMENSE!! You can link to it on Mark’s web site or Google it. But long story short, they’re not just cooking the books in Washville…they are cooking, baking and barbecuing them.

We are TWELVE TRILLION Dollars in the hole right now..and the debt goes up by FOUR BILLION dollars every day! To this staggering debt, the DeMarxists want us to think the proposed Unhealthy for America bill will ‘ONLY’ cost 849 BILLION dollars. The Heritage Foundation figured it at TWO POINT FOUR PLUS TRILLION DOLLARS. Now the CATO Institute’s studies, investigating much farther into the smoke and mirrors and creative bookkeeping practices employed by Congress and their cabal of criminal cronies, puts the tab at much closer to SIX POINT FIVE TRILLION DOLLARS!!

Meanwhile, the Obama administration and the Congress continue to spend like alcoholics on a binge.
Any Republican who says he wants to reach ‘accommodation’ on this bill or ‘FIX’ it, or any part of it, should be run out of office. And we need to tell them just that.
It’s time to take off the gloves and go bare knuckles on this Congress and this Administration.

Once Upon A Time – Another Visit To Fantasyland.

This is one of the days that my editor hates…she likes themes that match titles and have a modicum of logic to them. Shame on her…there’s so much going on right now that my brain gets the whizzies just trying to keep up.

There’s Carol Browner, re-affirming her absolute and slavish faith in the unassailable dogma of the Church of East Anglia. Pass that kool-aid, and don’t let little things like the discovery of the greatest scientific fraud conspiracy, for CONSPIRACY it is, in recorded history bother you. A bunch of elitist, ideologically-driven, leftist scientists with control over data and utilizing a completely incestuous peer review system, to ensure that outside commentary critical of their ‘genie in the bottle’ science was never exposed. All the while, conspiring with equally rabidly left-leaning, ideologically-driven scientists on this side of the pond to help legitimize and disseminate the same junk science. With their willing but not-so-bright accomplices, such as Al Gore and the equally fraudulent United Nations phony carbon trading schemes, power, control and riches were within their grasp. Until a funny thing happened on the way to the forum…the world woke up.

Meanwhile in our nation’s capitol, the usual White House rats are trying to foist off a major breach of security protocol on the Secret Service. The amateur Clown College is in full panic mode trying to cover up.
At the same time the Chief of the Clown College has made a momentous decision which ONLY took about 14 weeks, one that any twelve year old could and would have made in fifteen minutes. That of sending the troops our military commanders had requested, to reinforce the men already in-country in Afghanistan, to accomplish the mission HE sent them over there to do. NOBODY in the military wants to serve under a gutless wonder and that’s what Obama is. Except leave out the ‘wonder’, he’s just gutless.

Now the Senate under the inimitable Dingy Harry Reid has been 'put on notice' that Harry will be working weekends to get the most massive rip-off in American history passed. Uh Harry, the Senate only has 14 working days until Christmas. It's extremely doubtful that the increasingly unpopular Reid can pull it off as Senators on both sides of the aisle begin to think of the rapidly approaching New Year, heralding mid-term elections in front of REALLY angry constituents and a nationwide electorate practically in a state of revolt.

With an economy flat-lined and unemployment affecting 1 out of 5 Americans, no one is willing to give Reid, Pelosi and Obama control over 1/6 of the American economy given their proven inability to manage even the simplest aspects of running this country.
Don’t forget! CALL, EMAIL and WRITE to your Senators and every single one on the Senate list (just google it). Let them know they won’t be re-elected if they vote for this bill. Be CIVIL. Once again,
it’s OK to be angry because we are! It’s OK to be forceful but leave out the four letter words. Those are the domain of the other side. Get ACTIVE! STAY ACTIVE! STAY INVOLVED!

Unhealthy For America Government Takeover.

Regardless of whether you are considering the House version of the health care bill, 2017 something pages, or the Senate version of 2074 pages, it all adds up to a massive TAX on the backs of all Americans that will break the bank in 2074 ways and keep on breaking it.

Of course the ones who should be ground under its iron heel first are the very ones who will opt themselves out of it, the self same House and Senate. Let’s see…Joe Arpaio from Maricopa County, Arizona, would probably call these people a criminal conspiracy and he’d be right. Too damned bad the beltway is not part of Joe’s jurisdiction. There is nothing legal or constitutional about what our government is attempting. It is plainly a coup against its own people to wrest control of the government and the country from the American people.
This has a name. It’s called tyranny.

There are 2700 something uses of the word ’shall’ in the Senate version. Every one of those words has the threat of, or the actual use of, a punitive action by PENALTY, FINE or IMPRISONMENT behind it.
There are 2500 uses of the word ‘Secretary’, referring to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. Each use of this word connotes a bureaucratic fire wall between YOU and your HEALTH CARE PROVIDER!!
I don’t know about you, but I don’t for a split second want someone the likes of Kathleen Sebelius determining whether or not MY physician may treat me, or what treatments he can prescribe or the amount of his compensation. Or whether or not I should be FORCED to carry health insurance.

The GREAT LIE, as this bill should be called, is an out of control monster that is threatening our lives, our homes and our very posterity. It is TWO POINT FOUR PLUS TRILLION DOLLARS front-loaded in a massive tax increase for ‘benefits’ that don’t fully take effect for ten years. It’s a MASSIVE ponzi scheme such as the world has never seen.

The Senate begins debate on this horror tomorrow. Now that we’ve all had the opportunity to work off the effects of Thanksgiving dinner it’s time for us to get back to work also. Start ginning up the pressure and keep it there…don’t let up for a minute…they have to know we won’t stand for it!

I just got off the phone with my brother. I love him dearly and we never argue about anything except politics…he’s a liberal who came through our college system while I was slogging through the bush.
He was in the public sector all his working life. He’s a social liberal and a fiscal conservative…poor guy..that’s a very confusing place to be. Even he has come around to understand that this mess cannot stand and that it is no more than an immense attack on our freedoms.

Start calling, emailing and writing not only to your own Senators but to EVERY one on that list.
Join with your local patriots to initiate action in your neighborhoods. ACT locally, ACT nationally.
Now is the time!!
