I don’t recognize my country today.
The last few days have presented a clear and obvious choice. Our Embassies, sovereign territory placed within other nations, have been attacked and defiled. Our ambassador has been killed, along with several others in planned coordinated attacks on American facilities.
While the government of Mohammed Morsi permitted his thugs to invade the grounds of the American Embassy in Cairo, the US state department was issuing apologies to Islam, condemning those who would dare to ‘Hurt the feelings’ of Muslims anyplace in the world.
When a candidate for the office of president challenged the appropriateness of this apology, he was roundly criticized, not for saying something untrue or incorrect, but for ‘the timing’ of his statement. All this while the State dept. repeated and reissued the same statement even while the flag of our nation was being pulled down, set ablaze and replaced by a flag representing the very Al Qaeda groups which have attacked us repeatedly.
Following that atrocity in Egypt, Libyan ‘extremists’ assaulted the consulate and the American Ambassador. He and others were escorted to a ‘safe location’ by Libyan guards… apparently we had no US Marines available to protect the representative of the United States in a dangerous area…
Once ensconced in said safe location, the Libyan ‘protectors’ then took to the streets, to inform the ‘small band of extremists’ as to the location of the American delegation.
Upon this felicitous discovery, the Ambassador and his aides were murdered, and their bodies carried, as trophies, through the streets in jubilant celebration of the pinnacle of Arab Muslim civilization.
To this point, there have been as many differing explanations and causes given for the death of these people as questions about ‘the motives’ of the assault.
It must have been that cheap movie; the clip was shown on YouTube. That’s why they attacked. Not because they want to extend their reach globally. So, in order to prevent them from attacking again, and to refute the statements of those who claim this is all about extending Sharia law in our modern world as it has been in their pre historic caliphate, many journalists have called out for the arrest and trial of a nominally Christian pastor who has supported the movie. He must be made to pay. We must curtail his right to speak, lest he offend some Islamic man of peace and drive him to behead someone in The Levant. We must implement the rules of Sharia in order to prove that the Islamofascists are not trying to implement the rules of Sharia.
Then our President makes his statement.
He uses one of his most useful collections of weasel words, telling us to “Make No mistake”
(This is a phrase he generally uses to ensure that we know he is about to make an intentional forced error)
“Justice will be done” Our president has promised that “Justice will be done”
This is step one. Justice, as in the Department of Justice. That great bastion of integrity and fairness which upon winning summary judgment against a group ( The New Black Panther Party) which used force to intimidate voters at polling places in Philadelphia, abandoned the case, and surrendered, dropping all charges against those who had just been convicted. That Standard Bearer of brilliance, which has stonewalled the investigation of the killing of a US agent by foreign nationals using guns purchased through a program managed by that very justice department, and denied by the head of that august body. That kind of justice.
Today after two devastating attacks, carried out on the eleventh day of September, (does that day ring any bells anyone??? Hello???) Our President, our leader, the most powerful man on the planet, has dispatched…….
The FBI to investigate and determine the motives of the attackers.
THE FREAKING FBI????? We are attacked by forces under the control of foreign governments, our representatives are murdered, our embassies defiled, our flag burned and REPLACED by the flag of our enemies, and we send in the cops???
Of course we will investigate, we will debate, and we will take an overt act of war and magically transmogrify it into an act of civil criminal disobedience, to be explained by root causes, and oppression by the evil conservative Christian right wing hate groups.
Soon enough we will see that the attacks in Cairo and Ben Ghazi are actually the result of actions by Rush Limbaugh, Fox News and Paul Ryan, abetted of course by the Koch brothers, enabled by the Citizens United decision. The only way to prevent such attacks from happening again will be to suspend the first amendment, and permit the government to support and affirm the rights of Muslims to impose their will, to eliminate the second amendment to prevent ‘right wing terrorists’ from attacking us from within, and to ensure that Obama and his administration remain in power to protect us from the Israelis who are the real source of terror in the middle east.
Of course, that last paragraph is a farce, a parody of reality. Absurd words, meant to dramatize the reality which is much nicer and safer. It is, I promise, … or at least I pray it is.
Keep the Faith!

Again and again we hear the representatives of our government, from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, to the President apologizing to Mexico for causing the problems south of the border. It is ‘our fault’ with our boundless appetites for drugs, and of course for providing “90% of all weapons” used by the narco-terrorists in Mexico. If only we could stop our be-knighted citizens from wanting these death dealing weapons, they would not be available at ‘gun shops along the border’ and the drug lords would be disarmed. See, it’s not the fault of the weak and corrupt Mexican government, nor of the hundreds of Mexicans who desert their posts in the army and join the well armed gangs. It’s the fault of the American Second Amendment and those of us who still cling bitterly to our guns and bibles.
This week, in a short visit to Mexico, President Obama found one more foreign stop to denigrate America, and to grovel to a foreign leader to beg forgiveness for America’s transgressions.
The Obama administration had already pledged to send more agents to patrol the border with Mexico and more helicopters to Mexico. But on Thursday the president went a step further, announcing that he would press the Senate to ratify the long-stalled inter-American arms treaty, which the United States had a major hand in negotiating through the Organization of American States.
The Mexican President discussed the problem, claiming the US as the source of all his country’s trouble:
But while the two pledged their “shared responsibility” in the drug wars during a news conference here, they seemed to diverge on the issue of the assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004. Mr. Calderón said nearly 90 percent of the weapons seized in Mexico could be traced to the United States, adding that organized crime increased after the ban expired.
Now, in recent weeks, Pres Obama has repeated over and over to US media that he will not seek a reintroduction of the assault ban. However in reply to President Calderon:
Mr. Obama campaigned on a platform of renewing it, but he suggested Thursday that reviving the ban was politically impossible because of opposition from gun enthusiasts. “None of us are under any illusion that reinstating that ban would be easy,” Mr. Obama said, while insisting he was “not backing off at all” from his conviction that renewing the ban made sense.
So, with the government of Mexico in a state of collapse, much of the country controlled by drug gangs, armed with weapons, equipment and even the soldiers of the Mexican Army, the president of the United States goes to Mexico and says it’s all the fault of American Citizens. Curious isn’t it?
Meanwhile Janet Napolitano, Homeland Security Secretary released a report advising US law enforcement to be on the lookout for American citizens who think taxes are too high, abortion is wrong, visit gun ranges or have just left the military. They are the real danger, according to the report.
Despite criticism from both outside and inside government, Ms. Napolitano has stood firmly behind her report, stating that she remembers Timothy McVeigh, and so the report is justified. I guess she forgets the Saudi Islamoterrorists from 9/11 as her memory skips back to 1994. One deranged American is a source of law enforcement attention, but an entire ideology bent on our destruction is now to be called ‘Man caused destruction’ instead of Terrorism.
Take a step back, and look at all of this. Obama has consistently been a ‘blame America First’ politician. When pressed he has moderated his rhetoric, but never deviated from his path. He has joined with his Attorney General, Eric Holder, to condemn us intelligence and military interrogators as torturers, even while saying they should not be prosecuted. The left wing of the Democrat party has always been about self perpetuation and maintaining power. While the focus of attention is on external threats, Americans tend to draw together to unite to oppose a common enemy. Such was the case in the aftermath of 9/11. However as soon as some distance made it possible, the left began to push for a return to a pre 9/11 mentality.
That focus is now inward. As President Obama and his international representatives scurry around the globe, condemning not those who have commited such acts, but America for somehow causing others to WANT to do so, they create a certainty that America is no longer prepared to stop our adversaries. As they blame the US, they must then, logically take steps to prevent a repeat. So,we skip over 9/11, and focus on McVeigh, and such events as Columbine high school, the attention of the bovine media will shift. Instead of being forced to call Americans ‘Heroes’ as they fight and die to save us, they will be able once more find fault with Americans.
Law enforcement can be twisted, as Homeland Security now controlled by ‘open borders’ advocates will focus on creating domestic demons to fight. More and more we will see criminals conjured from the ranks of the law abiding. Those who maintain that the Constitution is the Law of the Land will be ridiculed and attacked. Free speech will be redefined as hate speech. We are seeing the opening salvo of a fundamental attack. The fact that even in the face of outright criticism Ms. Napolitano has stood firm shows that this is not a mistaken policy paper. They are moving. Concerned patriotic Americans need to stand firm, and speak out against this.
Keep the Faith!
Over at the Conservative Examiner, they must be reading similar tea leaves.

‘When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less.’
Remember when virtually every donkey in congress, joined by major media outlets were pounding the drums over the ‘politicization of the Justice Department?” We have seen time and time again that the Obama administration has taken so many actions that seem to be unconstitutional. Well, today in the Washington Post we can see that this is intentional. The Great and Powerful Obama’s hand picked ally in the Attorney General’s office has rejected a clear and distinct opinion that the DC statehood bill is unconstitutional. Of course, the Post couches it in weasel words. ” Some in Justice… disagree..” The role of the Office of Legal Counsel is to provide guidance, in this case requested by A.G. Eric Holder, on the legality of certain positions taken by the Administration. The current lawyers in the Obama OLC have essentially reached the same conclusion which the Bush era OLC had come to. The Statehood bill for DC is unconstitutional and should not be supported.
In deciding that the measure is unconstitutional, lawyers in the department’s Office of Legal Counsel matched a conclusion reached by their Bush administration counterparts nearly two years ago, when a lawyer there testified that a similar bill would not withstand legal attack.
Unhappy with this decision, Holder decided not to publish it, and instead he turned to the Solicitor’s office.
Holder rejected the advice and sought the opinion of the Solicitor General’s office…
Now the two offices have very different functions. After being told by the OLC that this bill would violate the United States Constitution, the Obama Administration then asked a different question of the Solicitor’s Office. They were asked if they felt they could defend such a law should it be passed. Again, this is an entirely different issue.
Typically, legal scholars said, the solicitor general is asked whether the office can plausibly defend a law in court, rather than to opine directly on the legality of a piece of legislation.
What we see here is very clear, and very dangerous. After being advised by their own attorneys that a particular action would violate the Constitution which all have sworn to uphold, they ignored ( and buried) the legal advice, and asked for a political opinion on the issue.
This is clear, unequivocal evidence of the very thing the donkey party has screamed over. The Attorney General of the United States of America has directly changed policy to accommodate a political consideration. We have always harbored suspicions of the disdain the Obama people held for the Constitution, now we have direct and bright proof. .
This is a precedent, and even the Washington Post could not completely ignore it, while trying to downplay what was done, they had to put the facts out or lose the last shreds of respect they may still hold to themselves.
President Obama is showing that, for him, the Constitution is not an impediment to his desires and actions. It is as if Humpty Dumpty were not running the Justice department. The Constitution means only what they choose it to mean.
We are clearly facing something foreign, and no one seems able to stop them.
Americans need to prepare for a long hard slog, and watch carefully for the distortions this administration will perpetrate upon us.
Keep the Faith.

I have not got the time to explore this in depth right now, but need to call attention to a bill which has been introduced into the House. the bill is entitled “Blair Holt’s Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 ‘. Supposedly named in memory of a child killed by gunfire while riding in his school bus. As soon as politicians use a child as cover, you can be certain there is some nefarious purpose to their bill.
HR 45 is an attempt to mandate, among other things, federal licensing and registration of ALL firearms. You can read the text HERE.
Such licensing is a first step to confiscation. Please read this, contact your legislators and voice your opinion.
When I have time, I’ll write more on this.
Keep the Faith
