Deporting Millions Of Muslims May Be Necessary - Geert Wilders (video)

Bee's note:  
Syrian refugee camp

About one month ago, there were reports from our government stating that Obama is considering opening our borders to thousands of Syrian Muslims "refugees".  Of course, there is no way to confirm how many thousands have entered our country in the last five years under the status of "refugee" from Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, S. Africa, and other predominantly Islamic countries.  The United States refuses to see what is happening across Europe, or in countries where the percentage of Muslims increases yearly in non-Islamic countries.  

Listen to Geert Wilders:

For those who say it will never happen in America, you have not been paying attention to the agenda and ideology of American Islamic organization, or in our cities where Muslims have become more than a minority; or, the lists of court cases of Muslims suing businesses; and, the "honor" killings within our borders.
Nor, have you paid attention to the number of new "converts" to Islam within America's prisons.  

As Mr. Wilder states, "It's time to stop talking and start acting" and one of the ways to act now is to close our borders to potential terrorists from blood-stained, murderous countries practicing Islam.  Islam is a contradiction to today's society, civilization, and the U.S. Constitution.  Why do you suppose so many states are passing bills, rejecting Shaira in our Court systems?!  There should be no need for any additional "bills", since Sharia is a contradiction to everything our nation has been built upon since the days of our Founding Fathers.

How many illegal Islamists have crossed our southern borders?  Reports of Hezbollah crossing over are more than troubling and here again, another failure to protect America's borders by this administration is NOT the way to keep America safe from planned/future acts of terrorism.  Since 9/11/2001, not one of our Immigration laws already on the "books" is taken serious by our federal government.  Supposedly, that was going to be one of the first things Homeland Security was suppose to "fix" after 9/11.

We have an arrogant, pompous, elite administration, willing to sell out America to the highest bidder - who do you suppose we are bowing to, every time we swing that door open to Islamists?

Americans are considered "soft" and with the right propaganda, as the showing of young children "refugees" continually in our Media, we immediately want to say "Enter"!  However, what the media does not show are the Islamic terrorists entering along with the children of war-torn Islamic nations.  

Here's news of today's actions by those "friendly" Palestinians who just happen to be supported by the Obama, Inc. administration as so-called "peace" partners of Israel:

Who's to Blame? - by Americans Stand with Israel

A "Barry-cade" prevents visitors from entering the Badlands National Park

Who do we blame?!

From the WWII Memorial to the Grand Canyon and beyond, Obama's shutdown (the first in 17 years) has caused frustration among all Americans.
Obama blames the Republicans and not to be outdone, the Republicans blame the Democrats. The Senate blames the House and the House blames the Senate.
Meanwhile, Independent Truckers organized a 3-day Rally and in short notice, the Veterans organized a "March" to be held at the WWII Memorial for tomorrow.
How did we get here - to a point where Americans are angry, frustrated and fed up with its government?!

Like a tea kettle on low heat, the pot has been on "simmer" for five years - it reached a boiling point just before 9/11/2013 - and on 9/11, American patriots, almost ONE MILLION, rode into Washington, D.C. to say, "Hello America! We're here and we are fed up with the way our government is failing here on the homefront, and over there, with poor decisions in U.S. foreign policies".

Not a peep was heard from our Media - only the sounds of engines roaring - the kick stands were up, but no one paid attention; the media held a blackout, not wanting to cause "waves" among our politicians.

And so, the truckers stepped in to pick up the slack of silence, and they within a short month's time, said "We will go!". That, before our Veterans were so poorly treated by their own Dept. of Defense and the White House's decision to shut their Memorial down.

The Veterans, not being citizens who remain silent, stood together and within days (one week) joined together to "March" on Washington tomorrow, to speak for ALL veterans and those who died last week in Afghanistan - to come home to "silence", as the White House and Pentagon refused to pay benefits to their families to allow for an honorable burial service.

Never, in U.S. history, have our Veterans been mistreated so poorly! Never, in our history, have our Military been betrayed by our government.

Who's to blame?

There aren't a MILLION truckers on the scene in Washington and rumors have it that some actually blame them for not having a larger Rally. The newspapers blame the rain and scoff at any attempt to hold a demonstration in Washington - they say, "No one is listening"!

We have become so "satisfied" as a nation that things will eventually turn around, that we sit in our comfortable homes, watch the football game, and complain about the price of Milk - with a "Let the other guy speak for me" attitude, that we should wonder why the Mall in D.C. is half empty.

God bless America, Land of the Free!

Free for how long?! Free until the lights turn off? Until America is transformed into a Marxist/Socialist nation, supporting terrorists in nations that burn our flags and cry "Death to America". 

I could blame Obama, but America is what it is today, due to the numbness, complacency, and laziness of its citizens who prefer this government to "speak" for them; the same citizens who like sheep, follow a usurper in the White House who speaks a "foreign" language - the language of Communism, who hates America's troops, Veterans, and its Constitution.

Do not blame the ones refusing to MARCH to Obama's tune; blame those who willingly follow a few elites in Washington, but rather, those who refuse to STAND UP and take a stand to protect the culture, liberties and freedom of these United States under our U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.

The closings of the National Parks was Obama's way of showing disrespect to all that represents America. He wanted to punish all of us for not giving in to his ongoing "transformation" of America. 

............ and still, the sounds of silence from the majority. If allowed to continue, the next sound you will here, if history repeats itself, will be the sounds of railway trains heading off to FEMA Camps .. and you, dear American, who remained silent, will be the first on those trains.

That's it America - the choice is yours to make - "silence" or "standing up"!

Fi against the house of Montague and Capulet! This is not a right or left issue, this is a master and slave dispute. These are our monuments. The first amendment gives us the right to peaceably assemble and to have a redress of our grievances. We do not come to DC to start riots, hurt anyone or to attack anything. We are just here to stand firm on the principles forged into us by our military training. 
Rumblings say there are certain groups that will engage in civil disobedience and will stand for the vets on their specific memorials. More Rumblings bring rumors of National Guard movement toward the DC area, and elsewhere. Given the types of people who will actually stand behind what they say and caliber of who is to be in DC this weekend it would only be logical if you were in governance to call in the National Guard if that is true….. The “just in case” option. In this situation, veterans and trucker services take issue with the government on two different issues

Realize that we are dealing with a pissed off demographic that has the ability, training, history of and has done the bidding of the government in warfare defeating “bad guys”.  Veterans, trucker and bikers are just the supposed “sleeping giants” that will not wait for the alarm to sound. Point here is….. we never went to sleep, we see you and we are not going to let you roll this country over into whatever tyranny you subscribe to. We do not seek to have a revolution or have any violence at all, ever; we have seen it and know there is no return from it. But, remember, you’re in service to us and not the other way around. When we get out of the service we get our Constitutions back, including the “Bill of Right”

We are speaking up within out rights, that's all...... we just happen to mean it.

On the other hand we have a government that is most obviously arrogant, abusive and openly going against our sworn Constitution with laws proven to be in violation. Budgetary issues, government shutdown, debt ceiling, healthcare, NDAA funding the enemy with our best weaponry (treasonous activity with Al-Qaeda and Muslim Bro-hood), sending billions of dollars abroad to the people who swear screaming to their god to kill us in jihad, burning our flag, and calling us “Great Satan” seem to be against the will of the governed. We are here to make sure our oath of service is upheld….. you are part of it and you are in violation.

We know that NON-VIOLENT Civil disobedience is a way to get our countrymen to address the problems in the world and to speak honestly. You (the government) seem to be actively trying to stoke race riots, class warfare, the war on women, common core and the elimination of the middle class giving rise to a ruling class (or “political class”, Clinton, Bush, congress, no term limits).

WE ARE THE SONS OF LIBERTY and YOU SHALL NOT PASS. There is only so much a man can take when you are raping his dignity, honor, respect ……OUR AMERICA! American military, truckers, bikers and re-founders do not take kindly to your insolence. We are mad as hell and we are NOT going take it anymore!


Note: In closing, I would like to post a video as a tribute to ALL America's veterans and especially, to those who will be marching tomorrow - Sunday, October 13th - in D.C., at the WWII Memorial:

"This is why they are the greatest generation. They fought for something and wont let the government get stupid and slappy.  VETERANS, start standing because otherwise we have to depend on these guys to save us."  -- Former Navy SEAL Benjamin Smith

WWII Memorial - Washington, D.C.
BREAKING: WWII vets have seized control of the WWII memorial in DC and will not budge. They’re ignoring the “shutdown” orchestrated by Obama and are standing watch at the memorial.
These patriots fought the Nazis and the Japanese army. You think they’re afraid of some wannabe-dictator like Barack Obama? Of course not. They’ve still got it. Do you support the vets? We sure do. There’s a reason they were called “The Greatest Generation”.
It’s time for everyone to learn from this symbolic statement and remember: If you are tired of tyranny, just knock down the barriers. The power is always in the hands of the people.

Rep. Duncan Hunter: Obama Personally Withheld Military Death Benefits (video/interview)

Report: Obama's Efforts to Hide What He's Really Doing Greatest Since Nixon

October 10, 2013
President Obama after talking about the possibility of a shutdown

Excerpted from The Guardian: Barack Obama has pursued the most aggressive “war on leaks” since the Nixon administration, according to a report published on Thursday that says the administration’s attempts to control the flow of information is hampering the ability of journalists to do their jobs.
The author of the study, the former Washington Post executive editor Leonard Downie, says the administration’s actions have severely hindered the release of information that could be used to hold it to account.
Downie, an editor during the Post’s investigations of Watergate, acknowledged that Obama had inherited a culture of secrecy that had built up since 9/11. But despite promising to be more open, Obama had become “more aggressive”, stepping up the Espionage Act to pursue those accused of leaking classified information.
“The war on leaks and other efforts to control information are the most aggressive I’ve seen since the Nixon administration,” Downie said in the report, which was commissioned by the Committee to Protect Journalists.
“Those suspected of discussing with reporters anything that the government has classified as secret are subject to investigation, including lie detector tests and scrutiny of their telephone and email records,” the report says.
This had a chilling effect on government accountability, even on matters that were less sensitive, it said.
David Sanger, the chief Washington correspondent for the New York Times and one of 30 journalists interviewed by Downie, says in the report: “This is the most closed, control-freak administration I’ve ever covered.”
The report said that White House officials “strongly objected” to accusations that they did not favour disclosure, and cited statistics showing that Obama gave more interviews in news, entertainment and digital media in the first four plus years iin office than President George W Bush and Bill Clinton did in their respective first terms, combined.
They cited directives to put more government data online, speed up processing of FoI requests and limit the amount of information classified as secret.
“The idea that people are shutting up and not leaking to reporters is belied by the facts,” said Jay Carney, Obama’s press secretary says, in the report.
In his report, Downie chronicled the Obama administration’s use of the 1917 Espionage Act to prosecute leakers, and its development of a programme that requires government employees in every department to help prevent leaks to the press by monitoring the behaviour of their colleagues. The initiative, called the Insider Threat Program, was first revealed by McClatchy newspapers in June.
Under Obama, the Espionage Act has been used to mount felony prosecutions against six government employees and two contractors accused of leaking classified information to the press, including Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning and Edward Snowden. In all previous administrations, there had been just three such prosecutions.
Still more criminal investigations into leaks are under way, the report points out. In one of them, a Fox news reporter was accused of “being an ‘aider, abettor and/or conspirator’ of an indicted leak defendant, exposing him to possible prosecution for doing his job as a journalist.”
The report cites the outcry in May this year, when the Justice Department informed the Associated Press that it had secretly subpoenaed and seized all records for 20 AP telephone lines and switchboards for two months of 2012, after an AP investigation about the CIA’s covert operation in Yemen. Although only five AP reporters and an editor had been involved in the story, the report said, “thousands upon thousands” of newsgathering calls by more than 100 AP journalists were included in the seized records.
Following a series of meetings with journalists, after the subpoenas, the Justice Department announced revised guidelines under which investigators could subpoena and seize records.
Journalists’ concerns have been compounded by the revelations by Snowden, the report said.
Jeffrey Smith, a national security reporter at the Center for Public Integrity, and one of several journalists to express such concerns, said in the report: “I now worry about calling somebody, because the contact can be found through a check of phone records or emails. It leaves a digital trail that makes it easier for the government to monitor those contacts.”
Scott Shane, the national security reporter at the New York Times, said: “Most people are deterred by those leaks prosecutions. They’re scared to death. There’s a grey zone between classified and unclassified information and most sources were in that grey zone.”
It was having a damaging effect on democracy, Shane said. “If we consider aggressive press coverage of government activities [as] being at the core of American democracy, this tips the balance heavily in favor of the government.”
Downie said that while the administration provides information through social media, it is “mostly self-serving information, as opposed to information that would hold the government to account. Journalists are being told to speak to public affairs office, but the public affairs office doesn’t call them back or is hostile.”
The report said the Obama administration has created a climate where, even on matters not pertaining to national security, but in the public interest, government officials are reluctant to provide information, including on Freedom of Information requests.
Ann Compton, the ABC News White House correspondent who has been covering presidents since General Ford, complained that there was “no access to the daily business in the Oval Office … who the president meets with, who he gets advice from”.
“He’s the least transparent of the seven presidents I’ve covered,” Compton said in the report. Keep reading

Mr. President, Tear Down This Barricade!

Bee's note:  The White House, Congress, the House, and all who like sheep are being led to the slaughter ignore  every "warning sign" presented by the American citizens to their Representatives for the past five years.  The cries for justice, from Fast and Furious, to Benghazi, down through the IRS, NSA scandals under investigation, and right through the refusal to pay death benefits to the families of our fallen heroes: there is NO response from Washington and that is not due to the diligence of a few in Washington who attempted to seek justice and accountability for the growing number of unspeakable actions by this administration, led by Barack HUSSEIN Obama.  
The scandals are referred to as "phony" and/or "bumps in the road", by Obama. This, to imply that those of us who are deeply concerned, are simply raising issues that DO NOT cause one moments sleep to those committing these treasonous acts (dare I use the word "treasonous"?).  Yes, since it now involves supporting such groups as "rebels"/terrorists in Syria, and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt - another terrorist organization supported by this White House (at least until a few weeks ago - haven't checked today, to see which way the wind blows).
In other words, what we, as Americans are witnessing is a few elite politicians who are setting up our great nation for one huge FALL/failure - the likes of which we may never be able to recover from, unless Americans gather the strength of their Founding Fathers and do whatever is necessary to prevent this administration's agenda to continue unchecked.
On 9/11, we attempted to DISPLAY our loyalty to country, by having ONE MILLION patriots ride into Washington, D.C.  It was a stunning show of patriotism to country!  and yet, not a peep from the MEDIA; the world was not allowed to see that Americans stood united, under one flag - the red, white and blue - NOT the zero logo of Obama (which is un-patriotic and disgusting to American citizens, because his logo does not represent America).  Obama's logo represents one person only - Obama and has nothing to do with America.  Check out the logos of dictators, such as the one Hitler used, to get an idea of why Americans reject Obama's logo.
And so, tomorrow, another courageous group of patriots will ride into D.C.; this time, in trucks and they intend to stay three days.  Among them, will be our faithful riders - some who rode in on 9/11.  There will be groups of Americans standing on the Overpasses of highways, to cheer on all who are taking part in this RALLY.  There will be booths set up all along the way, to feed the truckers and riders.  This will be the LOUDEST Rally and demonstration Americans have displayed in quite some time and you, dear world, will witness it; if you don't it isn't because this event did not happen; it will be due to the silence of a MEDIA bowing to Obama and his sick ideology  - the most un-American agenda in our history.
God bless America and bless everyone participating in this Rally.  Protect each and everyone and keep them safe from the evil intentions of those who wish them harm.  Amen!

Mr. President, Tear Down This Barricade!
By Alan Caruba

Ronald Reagan made a lot of history as President, but when he stood before the Brandenburg Gate not far from the Berlin Wall that divided the city and said, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall”, he rocked the foundations of the Soviet empire on June 12, 1987.  By 1989, the wall was opened and, in 1991, the Soviet Union collapsed. 
Now thousands of Americans are saying “Mr. Obama, tear down these barricades,” They have become a symbol of the dictatorial style that has emerged over the first term of the President and now demonstrate it for everyone to see in the first year of his second term.
What is also on display are the cracks in the foundation of Obama’s presidency and administration. The first occurred in the 2010 midterm elections that returned power to the Republican Party in the House of Representatives. In the Senate these days, even the Democrats are beginning to break ranks with the White House, resisting on many fronts, “crossing the aisle” rather than vote the party line and risk reelection.
Obama has left them little choice with his oft-repeated threat that he will not negotiate with Republicans, choosing instead to use his office to garner airtime and press coverage to disparage them as terrorists, anarchists, hostage-takers, and kidnappers, to name just of few examples of his petulant, idiotic name-calling.
The job of a President is to negotiate. Every one of his predecessors in the office negotiated fulltime, seven days a week, either with his own party with the opposing one.
Obama and those who created the image of Obama have gone blind and deaf. They’ve been inside the White House bubble so long that forgot how ordinary people react when the President orders that national monuments and parks are shut down and barricades get between veterans and visitors.
When the administration opened up the National Mall to a rally by illegal aliens, the contempt for all the rest of us—natural born and naturalized citizens—could not have been more clear. The selective malevolence of the access that was denied makes a lasting impression, even on the “low information” voters.
The President’s approval rating dropped to 37% on October 9th. Congress scores in the single digits. There is a lot of unhappiness among the voters and all the campaign-style speeches and photo-ops are not going to turn this around.
Watching the media trim and adjust its sails is interesting as well. When Kathleen Sebelius, the Secretary of Health and Human Services ran into a buzz saw on Jon Stewart’s “Daily Show”, it sent a signal to other liberal media personalities that it was okay to finally question what the administration was doing, particularly as regards Obamacare. The liberal lemmings may not want to jump off the cliff with the White House.
There’s one thing that has gone largely unnoticed during the “shutdown.” It takes weeks and months for the federal government to order anything. It is a huge bureaucracy. So why were all those printed signs available for the “shutdown”? Does the government keeps such things in a big warehouse somewhere?
The answer could be that Obama and his political advisors have been planning the shutdown and, in particular, the plan for the President to beat up the Republicans. 
He has begun now to gear up the Democrat Party campaign for the November 2014 midterm elections.  We are witnessing a deliberate effort to berate non-stop the Republican Party in general and the Tea Party movement in particular. The press conference in which the President held forth for over an hour is an example, but significantly, his approval rates dropped to a new low of 37%.
Harry Truman did this in 1948 when he ran for election after filling out the term of Franklin Roosevelt who had died soon after his fourth reelection. Truman disparaged a “do nothing” Congress, controlled by the Republican Party, even though its actual record showed that it had passed a number of laws he favored. It was pure demagoguery and, combined with a tireless campaign of whistle-stop speeches, secured Truman election when everyone assumed Thomas Dewey would be the winner.
It could be that Obama has taken a lesson from that election, but he is not running to be reelected. He is running to gain full control over Congress of the kind that allowed him to ram through the Affordable Care Act—Obamacare—in 2009. There were huge protests then and there will be more now.
A rally of truckers will seek to close down the capital this weekend in protest of Obamacare and other administration policies. Another rally will follow soon after by veterans. Indeed, I suspect 2014 is going to be remembered for a score of rallies that reflect the anger that has finally boiled up into action. As more and more Americans discover that their healthcare insurance premiums have doubled and tripled, they are going to blame one man—Barack Hussein Obama.
Obama has completely misread the character of the American people, perhaps because he lacks any character of his own.

Is History Repeating Itself?

October 10, 2013

When America decided that it could no longer tolerate the abuse and excess’ of King George, and declared their independence from Great Britain, they set forth in that declaration a list of the reasons for their decision. Compare their reasoning then to the current circumstances that we find ourself in. They are very similar in many instances. Take a look at a portion of the Declaration of Independence:
“The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the                      Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary                  government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for                          introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of                    our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all                cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”
It seems in reading this, that we are no longer a free people, with a governing body that is represented by regular Americans, instead we have devolved into the very monarchy of King George that we spent treasure and lives to overcome and establish a Republic called The United States of America!
Our Constitution gave us an out if and when we faced this situation, that was in Article V which says:
“on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress;”
This is a proposal that is gaining popularity, especially with the promotion of people like Mark Levin. This is a proposal that relies on the States desiring the freedom which has been taken from them. It is also a process that takes time and we truly have no idea what a vindictive and manipulative federal government would do in the meantime, or even if they, who have decided that the laws do not mean anything if they don’t like them, or that they are inviolate and unable to be changed if they do.
We don’t know if the administration which has made it clear that they would like to make life painful to the American people would accept the legality of the states making decisions that benefit them. We also don’t know if our Supreme Court would rule that this is Constitutional. This leaves a lot of questions about what we would do then.
But what do we do now? Do we allow the current situation to continue? If we do, we will no longer be a free people, but rather slaves to a government that thinks that it knows what is best for all, that they have the moral right to redistribute not only the wealth that a private citizen earns, but the property that they have strived for in many cases their whole lives. An administration that thinks that it knows best what food you should eat, what news you should read, what faith you should practice, and even what words are acceptable for you to think!
In other words, we will not be The United States of America because the states will really no longer exist, but instead every directive will come from the Federal Government and they will be our God.
When the founding patriots decided that they had reached their limit and informed King George of their grievances, they knew that they would have to fight for freedom.
“Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”
The time is rapidly approaching when we as American Citizens must choose the path of our future. We must choose while we have the opportunity, because if we do not, it will be chosen for us. A Constitutional Convention is one choice and it is one that I think that most people would agree on. However there is the possibility that we will not be able to make that choice. It that is the case there will only be two choices. Thomas Jefferson informed us that there was a possibility that we may have to change our government in The Declaration of Independence:
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.—That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this let Facts be submitted to a candid world.”
When our government no longer have our permission to govern and instead are forcing us into the positions of slaves to it, we have the right under the Constitution to remove our government and take the rights that they lay claim to, away from them. We are told that it should not be done lightly and for transient cause. What is going on in our Federal Government is not a transient cause. Instead, it is rapidly developing into permanent enslavement. We can look at the reasons that we declared our independence in the first place and compare them to today’s conditions and see that they are almost identical.  It is our right, our duty, to throw off such Government, and provide new Guards for our future security. We are in the throes of Tyranny with a leader and governing body that no longer follows the law, abides by the Constitution, nor address’ the complaints of the people. We must choose wisely, but above all we must choose!

Sooner or Later, Obama Will Negotiate - by Peter Roff



October 10, 2013

Sooner or Later, Obama Will Negotiate

Editorial cartoon satirizing President Obama.
It is tempting, while covering the current budget crisis, to adopt the breathless style of the long-ago war correspondent, reporting on congressional visits to the White House as though they were peace talks and press conferences as if they were an instant account of a skirmish between the warring parties. In Obama's Washington, politics is the continuation of war by other means.

But for all the bluster, it is the president – aided by Nevada's Harry Reid, his principal footman in the United States Senate – who is out to obliterate the Republican Party. My colleagues in the major media may report otherwise but their news stories and stand up reporting from the front lawn of the presidential mansion and from inside the rotunda of the U.S. Capitol have become instruments of battle, propaganda that casts one side in the white hats and the other in black.
President Obama has been repeatedly disingenuous in his description of how budgeting and appropriations are done in Washington. This may be excused by the simple fact that he was not in the nation's capital for very long before becoming president and may just not know any better. On the other hand he may also be deliberately misstating the case to leave people with the impression that Congress votes once, up or down, on how much money the federal government will have to spend in a given year.
This is not the way it is supposed to be. It is hard to explain the federal budgeting process without entering into a political science lecture that will have most everyone reaching for the sports scores after the third paragraph. Suffice it to say that under current law, a law that has been in place for nearly a third of a century, the funding decisions made by Congress are presented to the president in a piecemeal fashion.
To put it another way, consider the amount of money appropriated by the Congress to run the federal government as a large chocolate cake. Under regular order, which the Democrats and Republicans both tried to follow from Nixon through George W. Bush, the Congress would send the cake to the president a slice or two at a time.
Since serious negotiations have all but broken down as of the time this blog post was composed, the Republicans have fallen back on a strategy that involves sending the cake to the president a crumb at a time. A bill here to keep the National Parks open, a bill there to allow military chaplains to serve Mass without fear of arrest, another to secure back pay for federal workers furloughed because of the lack of agreement between Congress and the president on spending priorities. It a version, much scaled down but much more alike than different of what the current law requires.
The disconnect comes at the level of the president, who has repeatedly told Congress and repeatedly told the American people that he will accept the whole cake or nothing at all – and he is using his Senate lackey Reid to back him up by not letting the Senate act on these small pieces of legislation lest he and Obama lose control of the process.

Bee's note: 
President Obama's refusal to govern is going to be the albatross around his neck growing stronger with each passing day.  He had expected his political moves to fall back on the Republicans, escaping all blame for the outrageous choices he has made to punish America.  His actions are a dereliction of duty.  As "president" he has abandoned his responsibilities to protect and keep America safe and should be removed for not fulfilling his Oath to Office, under the U.S. Constitution. 
For Americans, Obama is the picture of all things un-American and to the world, he is a laughing stock - something to be scorned.

Cheer up, America!  You voices will be heard loud and clear, tomorrow!


Obama: “The United States Does Not Negotiate With Terrorists … Uh, Republicans.”
