I will guess, however, that this will not get much media coverage.
“The Iron Dome has been a big reason why Israel has been able to withstand the terrorists that have tried to tunnel their way in,” Grimes was quoted as saying.

We all hear over and over about the famous “Checks and Balances” built into the government by the Constitution. Supposedly each of the three branches are separate and equal, in order to prevent any one branch from gaining too much centralized power and moving the nation back toward tyranny. In recent times we have seen over and over that the balance is portrayed as a balance between the “Two Parties” so one political party does not gain overwhelming power over the levers of government. The last is the most risible of all, as there were no real political parties when the Constitution was written, and as most have heard, outgoing President Washington warned about the danger of parties as he left office.
All of this addresses the balance of power within the Federal Government. All of this also fails to address one area of balance which was intentionally removed, and all but forgotten. This loss, and loss of memory is perhaps the most destructive to our republic.
The loss I speak of is the loss of any check or balance of the power of the Federal government against the states, which was erased by the 17th amendment.

Ok,I have wasted some time reading some stuff, more post election whining and finger pointing. Just a couple of fast thoughts.
First: it’s time to eliminate any and all Bush admin folks from the ranks of any party that wants to win. Personally I think the elephant party should just go away, basically THEY SUCK.
Next, stop all the crap about ‘Swing States”. If you want to run to be President of the United States, then campaign in ALL of the United States. If you want to be president of Ohio, then put that on your ads and shut the fuck up.
Way too many states were taken for granted. This year there was a case to be made, and Romney and the elephants just didn’t bother. Since they only concentrated on swing states, and critical issues, then they abandoned the case that they SHOULD have made.
Run for president, not for marketing executive.
Make a case, present ideas, and tell me why you DESERVE to be my president.
If not, well, then people will stay home and you will continue to lose over and over and over.

Warning – This is long (for me), meandering, and quite possibly incoherent. Please do not mistake this for an official White House briefing or proposed legislation.
It is amazing to me, although I thought I was finished being shocked by the left. I Googled the phrase “Obama’s Guantanamo/al-Qaeda remarks” and it took me 10 minutes to find the actual remarks. I had to search Whitehouse.gov to find the text of the speech. All that came up on Google (at least the first 2 pages – which is all my attention span will allow me to look through) was the same silly blog being reposted all over the place. The blog was “Just Watch the Right Distort Obama’s Guantanamo/al-Qaeda Remarks”. They claim the President was saying Guantanamo was a propaganda and recruiting tool, and that the right has begun to twist his words. The same way the head of Homeland Security had her words twisted by being quoted? Maybe the same way Supreme Court nominees have their words twisted, by repeating them in their entirety with contextual explanation? Now I’ll grant them that President Obama said:
“For over seven years, we have detained hundreds of people at Guantanamo…. There is also no question that Guantanamo set back the moral authority that is America’s strongest currency in the world. Instead of building a durable framework for the struggle against al Qaeda that drew upon our deeply held values and traditions, our government was defending positions that undermined the rule of law. …. Meanwhile, instead of serving as a tool to counter terrorism, Guantanamo became a symbol that helped al Qaeda recruit terrorists to its cause. Indeed, the existence of Guantanamo likely created more terrorists around the world than it ever detained.”
The problem is he said that in May, 2009. What he said in January of 2010 was:
“But make no mistake: We will close Guantanamo prison, which has damaged our national security interests and become a tremendous recruiting tool for al Qaeda. In fact, that was an explicit rationale for the formation of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. And, as I’ve always said, we will do so — we will close the prison in a manner that keeps the American people safe and secure.”
Now the phrase “explicit rationale for the formation of al Qaeda” seems to my untrained ears to mean the reason they are there. If he wanted to say Guantanamo helped them recruit or helped raise sympathy in the Islamic world, I think he would have said it like that. You know, the way he did in May. Both speeches do a lot to tell you his mind set in dealing with this threat. Following the “explicit rationale” comments, he went into detail on how he will address security. The President warns us that al Qaeda is “constantly evolving and adapting their efforts to strike us”. The White House site also says what I hope is a typo: “As they refine our tactics, we’ll enhance our defenses”. People tell me I am overly critical of the President on this issue, so here I am going to rush to his side. He did not mean that al Qaeda is refining our tactics! They are not wondering into the White House, uninvited, and offering their opinions. I mean, no one gets in there like that! The President promises us “smarter screening and security at airports, and investing in the technologies that might have detected the kind of explosives used on Christmas”. Well, I am willing to help my country. I have an old laptop that is kind of slow, a little buggy, and needs an external keyboard attached to it, but it can run e-mail, a web browser, and word. I will happily provide this 21st Century anti-terror technology to the TSA so they can see if someone on multiple watch lists, buying a one way ticket in cash the day of the flight without a valid passport should be searched as thoroughly as I was the 3rd time I flew round trip from Philly to Colorado Springs in the same month.
In May, he really laid down the gauntlet. In that speech he stated “We are indeed at war with al Qaeda and its affiliates”. Hoo-rah! (Can’t you just hear R. Lee screaming that out maggot?) He followed it up with the caution on how to prosecute this war. “But we must do so with an abiding confidence in the rule of law and due process; in checks and balances and accountability.” Hoo-hah!
I don’t recall FDR demanding lawyers and checks and balances to combat the Nazi threat. I do not recall a stirring speech to Congress promising to bring Admiral Yamamoto to justice. I have spoken to many WWII vets, none of whom have ever issued a Miranda warning on the battlefield. But wait, he leans on some quasi historical precedent. “…the decisions that were made over the last eight years established an ad hoc legal approach for fighting terrorism that was neither effective nor sustainable — a framework that failed to rely on our legal traditions and time-tested institutions…” . Can anyone tell me what war the US waged with a reliance on “our legal traditions and time-tested institutions”? The American Revoloution? No. Civil War? Hmmmm, nope. Either World War? Don’t think so. Wait! I have it. The closest we came was in Vietnam. That’s the model we want to follow, right?
Well, if that didn’t strike fear in the hearts of our enemies, they did it today. They revoked the Visa of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the man who tried to blow up 300 people on Christmas day. 12 days later, they revoked his visa. The Administration is sending a STRONG Clear statement! If you are a failed terrorist, we don’t want you here! And Gitmo, which of course is the main reason that al-Qaeda flourishes on the Arabian Peninsula, will ABSOLUTELY be closed! Sometime. Soon. Probably. We think, just don’t send them to Yemen. Or to Illinois because we can’t afford to buy lights and a new fence at the vacant state prison – fiscal responsibility is part of the new change in Washington remember!
Now there are some who will point to the cooperation of the Yemen government as evidence that Obama is gaining support around the world. It might seem like the approach to this as a legal issue and closure of Gitmo has garnered support in the Middle East. However, let’s take a deeper look. Since 2001, US military, not prosecutors, have driven the Taliban into the mountains. They have ripped Saddam from power and wrought havoc on the terror organizations that attempted to move into Iraq. The war was pushed away from our shores and towards the heart of Islamofascism. But why the sudden support of Yemen? There has also been support of the Saudis, who have launched air strikes against al-Qaeda on the Saudi/Yemeni border. In August of 2009, for the first time in decades, there was an attempted assassination of a member of the Saudi Royal Family. Al-Qaeda sent a suicide bomber tried to kill Prince Muhammad bin Nayef, assistant interior minister for security affairs, in his palace in Jeddah. Somehow I think this is far more likely to cause Saudi and Yemeni cooperation than a guarantee that someday Gitmo will close and the threat to deport every failed terrorist.
BTW – if anyone is still reading this, I feel sorry for you but wanted you to know one more thing. The reason I gave it the title I did was to hopefully get it in the mix of those other brain dead blogs that made me go on this rant. Have a nice day and go J-E-T-S-Jets Jets JETS!!!!

You all read of the killing this weekend, of a professor at Binghamton University in New York, right. It got all kinds of coverage. OK, maybe it didn’t, and that my friends is part of an increasing danger.
After all, when some random anthropology professor is killed in a ‘Senseless act of violence” it is always and everywhere front page news. 12 Action News, WBNG has the story, described this way:
University President Lois DeFleur issued this statement about Antoun’s death earlier this evening:
“This afternoon, in an act of senseless violence, the Binghamton University community lost one of its long-time faculty members…Our hearts go out to the Antoun family and we will provide them with as much assistance as we can in this time of sorrow,” said DeFleur.
Well, once you do some digging, this is surely not a random act, nor a senseless act of violence. The professor has written about fundamentalism among Christian, Muslim, and Jewish groups. He was killed by a man named Abdulsalam Al-Zahrani. Yet nowhere do we see any reference to this fact, which in our current world is certainly a relevant bit of information.
Atlas Shrugs blog has much detail on this.
We have a media which has become bound by political correctness and become controlled by editors and writers who simply refuse to see what is happening and are unwilling to print facts which do not fit their distorted world view.
The conflict between the world of Islamic Fascism and the desire of extremists to impose global Sharia is completely ignored by those who control the presses and broadcast studios. This is merely one aspect of the danger we face.
Look at the events of the last few weeks and the news as reported.
We had congress slam a healthcare bill, which will guarantee government control and indebtedness for generations to come. We had our President finally stop dithering and decide on a split the difference policy in Afghanistan. We had the greatest hoax of our time exposed, and what did we see printed on the front pages of the newspapers, headline virtually every television news broadcast?
Party crashers at the Whitehouse, and a golfer who cheated on his wife and crashed his car.
We can clearly see the importance of those two items, as opposed to the stories which were ignored and/or buried.
The really sad facts underlying all this is that most Americans seem not to notice. For a generation or more now our children have been spoon-fed an education designed to produce, not inquisitive, intelligent minds, but rather controllable easily led tools of the state. We are told over and over that ‘diversity’ means we are all the same, and there is no preferred viewpoint. From this view, the logic says we cannot condemn those who teach, speak and act on a view which literally calls for the destruction and replacement of our entire social system, the imposition of Sharia Law in all parts of the globe by violent and oppressive Muslim activists who hate our western values with a blinding passion. We are told we may not say or publish statements which will ‘offend’ them, or we will face discipline in the school or workplace.
This kind of false equivalence is what enables an angry Muslim Army Major to move with impunity to proselytize his patients, then to step up and kill those he despises, while commanders up to and including the Army Secretary call for ‘understanding’ and whimper that this might hurt diversity in the military.
I am at a loss here. Our leaders in government, in the media, in business seem willing to sell out American Citizens to a world government bent on achieving economic control using lies and false climate science. Our teachers and leaders bow ( Literally bow down to foreign leaders!!!)
to those who would destroy us.
Our president insists on negotiation with nations who despise freedom, and insist they will never surrender their goals to destroy America and our allies, as with the North Koreans and the Iranians.
Time and again our nation is threatened, and time and again our media present us with another celebrity story and another episode of dancing with stars.
It is past time to react. It is past time to halt this. We hold elections under the mistaken idea that one party is different than another, when the truth is that both parties are loyal to themselves and not to the Constitution they swear to uphold. It is time for Americans who care to take a stand. One group which seems to be moving in the right direction is ” Get Out of Our House“. If they do what they are promising, there will be a chance to vote “None of the above’ and sweep all incumbents out of DC and start again.
Barring the creation of such a slate of candidates, I am beginning to think the alternative is simply to say “if you are in office now, I will vote for your opponent’. Vote against ANY incumbent.
Anyone else have any ideas? We need them, and we need them NOW.
I fear that without some sort of political, peaceful change soon, we may face something far worse, and far more dangerous.
Inaction is no longer an option. We must reverse the course. Failure will move us toward destruction. Either from external danger or from within from those who will grow increasingly angry with the status quo. And those extremists come from all areas of the political spectrum. There will be no clean hands on left or right if we cannot pull back from this abyss.
Keep the Faith

So, it’s time to celebrate, isn’t it? The good guys scored some big hits and stole some thunder from the Omabites on election day 2009. Team Obama got beat back, and the libs have been taught a lesson. Time to party, to look to who won and plan to continue the winning strategy into the mid-term elections in 2010. After all the good guys came out on top!
Only there’s a flaw in all of this. Look who won and how didn’t. Sure, the Republican Party took a couple of seats from Democrat governors. But the way things are going that’s like being chased by a cheetah, and thinking you are safe when a leopard takes his place behind you. One may run faster, but either one will eventually catch you and then, lights out.
In the now infamous NY 23 house race, the Democrat Party took over a seat which was renowned as a safe republican seat for decades. Note that: ” a SAFE republican seat”. (of course the seat was held by a democrat in 1993, but that’s a minor detail, isn’t it?) That means essentially one party rule in that district. Perhaps that’s why when Ms Dede Scozzafava ran and called herself a Republican, the party rewarded her with nearly a million dollars in campaign funds, ignoring her liberal political stance on most issues.
As the election neared, and the Conservative Party of New York ( CPNYS) endorsed Doug Hoffman the two major parties tried their best to ignore him. As he gained ground, eventually garnering better poll results than either ‘major party’ candidate, the very liberal Scozzafava withdrew. The party of elephants then said they would support the conservative. Dede did not agree, and the one time nominee of the Republican Party of New York cast her support to the nominee of the donkey party. After having denounced him during the entire campaign, the Republicans now embraced Hoffman. This is NOT because they embraced his positions. It was mere expediency, hoping to maintain a share of the seat to which they felt entitled. Remember, this is a “safe republican seat for decades”.
Down State, in Manhattan, the estimable billionaire Mike Bloomberg was running for a third term. Nevermind that the laws of New York City have prohibited more than two consecutive terms for years. You see, Mr. Bloomberg could not imagine that anyone could run the city as well as he has done. Despite two separate votes in which the residents of NYC have voted to maintain a two term limit for their mayor, Bloomberg went to the city council, not the voters. A compliant city council agreed to change the rules, and allowed Mr. Bloomberg to run again. Not by vote, but by fiat did Bloomberg get his way. Inconvenient laws are just waived away. Even the immensely popular Rudy Giuliani would not do such a thing, during the scary times after 9/11. He followed the rule of law and simply turned the office to his successor. It is interesting to note that Bloomberg is reported to have spent more than $100 MILLION of his own money to gain this re-election.
See, the problem here is not liberal versus conservative parties, it’s not donkeys and elephants. The problem is accumulation of power and the sense that those who currently hold office are entitled to those offices. This sense of ownership betrays the entire mindset. It really doesn’t matter if you color your state ‘blue’ or ‘red’ or purple. It does not matter if you show up to speak wearing an elephant head or a donkey head during your campaign. As long as you are part of the club, you are in. Not the interests of the nation, nor the American People, the primary concern maintaining their elitist grip on power. The two major parties are now so concerned with getting and keeping power that they will simply act in the interest of party rather than in the interest of the nation.
The secret is revealed by the results of the special election in the 23rd district of NY. As soon as the seemingly opposed parties saw their place at the table threatened, they reacted. Actual citizens seemed on the brink of taking control of their own government. Those annoying ‘Tea Party” people were crushing the established party candidates. Only one thing to do: Dump the fake elephant, have her endorse the donkey and at all costs, do not allow an outsider to get a place at the table. The future of the two party system is on display in New York. The election results for NY -23 and NYC Mayor Bloomberg show the length the major parties will extend themselves to maintain their grip on the levers of political power.
I am taking a close look at an organization that seems, at first glance to have this concept in mind. “Get Out of Our House” is a growing grass-roots organization whose entire goal is to fund and elect outsiders. I suggest you take a look around and see what you think. I have just begun to read through, but so far I like what I see. Please, check them out.
Please, do something. Just pay attention. We are seeing our government corrupted and the ‘Two Party system” turned into a fiction used to hold oligarchs in power. If we do nothing, we will have a government little different from that currently pretending to be a democracy in Russia.
Keep the Faith.
