Obama The Lightweight Lightfoots Around Patriot Movement.

March 31, 2010

As usual, the Associated Press gets it all upside down and purposely wrong. When I was in broadcasting years ago, the AP was a mainstay in news reliability and journalistic integrity. The first source I would head for in a breaking news environment would be the AP wire machine. My, how times have changed.

Today, AP wrote that our ‘I wanna be just like Hugo Chavez’ President was said to be stepping lightly around the subject of the Patriot Movement, what the ever-lame statist press loves to call the ‘Tea Partiers’, with that condescending smarmy tone they love to use. Then they state that the Republican Party wants to co-opt our ‘passion and our votes’.

If they did ten minutes research with any source other than the Washington Post, they’d know that the Republican party is co-opting nothing. They are falling in line behind the conservative patriot movement as fast as they can. The ‘new’ Republican leadership, which we have seen emerging from the battle over health care, are well aware that this is not the haphazard gathering of disgruntled voters that the left is so wont to portray. It’s a huge groundswell which is growing and gaining ground daily. Any movement that can produce twenty to thirty thousand people at the Capitol, virtually on an overnight notice such as occurred over the weekend of the health care voting, is one which has considerable clout.

Barack Hussein Obama was very circumspect in taking shots at the Patriots, though he tried to characterize the supposed ‘core’ of the patriot movement as being ‘on the fringe’. That’s funny. The Patriot Movement as a whole views Obama, his administration, and that whole whacked out De-Marxist Congress as being far more than ‘fringe’. We view him and them as being irretrievably over the edge.
They’ll find out just how much in November, as more and more Democrat dominoes fall over.

The Straw Man March – The Left’s Obsession With Victimhood.

March 30, 2010

It’s a cameo of the Clinton administration right down to the ever charming Janet Napolitano waging warfare on ‘armed Christian militia groups’. Democrats all over the country are suddenly ‘in fear for the lives of themselves and their families’. What crap! Every time anyone, anytime calls them on their stuff they fall back on racism, or fear of the supposed militant right in this country. Then with the connivance of the statist, left wing lap dog press they attempt to link the entire patriot movement to every fancied incident they can create.

Janet Napolitano

If that Christian Militia in Michigan was indeed plotting some insane campaign of terror against local police departments as part of a campaign against the government, then they were as stupid as they were inept. No patriot or group of patriots is actively plotting against the US Government, and most particularly if they were, they sure as hell wouldn’t start with the local police or Sheriff’s deputies.

There are parts of this story that just aren’t meeting the smell test… like so much of what the left does, they aren’t very good story tellers. They are too accustomed to their lies being given a gold plated pass by their goofball base and the statist press which has been carrying their water for so long.

The facts are that they can no longer depend on an ‘opinion lock’ by controlling the airwaves and the press, which they have done for so many years. The ‘new media’ has put a screeching halt to that.
That’s why the American Patriot Movement has been so successful. It is a bottom up grassroots movement completely independent of the traditional Republican establishment. In fact, it has more or less dragged the ‘old boy’ network along behind it, kicking and screaming most of the way, but coming along nonetheless.

The left knows it’s in real trouble with this movement gaining strength by the day as more and more Americans, and many of them self-identified Democrats, have come to the understanding that they’ve not only been sold a bill of goods, but that they, their families and their fortunes have been sold down the river on a raft of polyanna promises with no substance.

We have a radical left wing assault on our country, and it’s not the militias and other red herrings being thrown out there by the likes of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano that we have to be concerned with… they are the war against America. Barack Hussein Obama’s White House and every Democrat lawmaker who supported him and turned their backs on their constituents and the American Constitution are guilty of de facto treason against the American people.

There is your ‘plot’ against the country, the rule of law and the people of this country. We need to be ever mindful of the left’s real goals and that as we march forward to November that the left, for all their bluster and bravado, are justifiably worried and will stop at nothing to hold power. We literally have to be prepared for anything.

Searchlight Tea Party, Thousands Hear Palin. CNN: ‘Dozens Of People’

March 29, 2010

What a pathetic joke for a news organization… CNN has plumbed the depths of falsification again by telling viewers throughout the day, Saturday, March 27th, that there were ‘dozens’ of people, maybe hundreds at the Searchlight, Nevada Tea Party rally. It can only be described as a pathetic attempt at misinformation. They must have the pizza guy doing news editorial programming, which shouldn’t really surprise anyone given their perpetual low market ratings… it’s embarrassing to get beat by MSNBC.

The Tea Party Express Bus, Searchlight, Nevada.

If you are in the business of news prevarication, you could at least be a bit creative about it. But then that would take talent and that appears to be something that there is a severe dearth of at CNN. That could be the reason that they hired RedState’s Erick Erickson… goodness knows their stable could use the help.

The latest figures I have on the rally held in Senator ‘Dingy’ Harry Reid’s backyard at Searchlight, Nevada, is that right around 20,000 people showed up to hear keynote speaker Sarah Palin. Palin, as usual, is taking massive amounts of abuse from the left. That’s to be expected and is a direct gauge of the fear they have for her. Obama can’t get more than a few thousand people to his bought-and-paid-for teleprompter extravaganzas. Sarah Palin gets more than that to a book signing.

Sarah Palin In Searchlight, Nevada.

Since announcing her support for John McCain, Sarah has taken an awful lot of heat from our side as well. I’ve made no secret of my dislike for John McCain. He comes with more baggage than the cargo hold of a 747. Sarah Palin cannot be unaware of his liabilities, both to the State of Arizona and her own future political aspirations. For myself, JD Hayworth is a far better choice. He is as solid a conservative as John McCain is a RINO, a Conservative when it suits his purpose, and is many times injurious to his party and the country.

He is just plain wrong-headed on some critical issues, especially wrong on interrogation and amnesty for illegals. Sarah Palin is exhibiting loyalty to the man who launched her into national political prominence. Had she not, I would have had questions about her integrity. I have no doubt she would have made it on her own but it may have taken her several more years, and the way things look the country needs her now.

I believe that many times things happen for a reason. I believe that the Sarah Palin phenomenon is one of those times. So to the giants of the now largely marginal left wing media… keep it up. You’re the best promotional advertising we can get.

With A Friend Like Obama, One Doesn’t Need Enemies.

March 28, 2010

First of all tonight, I would like everyone who reads this column to read Erick Erickson’s article for Friday, March 26, 2010 on I have long been an admirer of Erick’s work and this time he has taken the bit in his teeth. Erick has articulated exactly what a lot of us have been thinking.

Erick Erickson

We have a rogue government which shows every indication of continuing to abrogate the principles of freedom and liberty upon which this land was founded, and the head of that government is behaving like this country is his fiefdom and we serfs to his monarchical tyranny. There is a tipping point here. Whether we have reached that point yet or not is a difficult thing to gauge.

The founders took a lot of abuse before they rebelled. They, like we, saw it as an action to be taken only in extremis. Yet driven to what they saw as a position of intolerability, take it they did. These were not wide-eyed radicals, but mature, reasoned and educated men. Most stood to lose everything and understood that once begun there could be no turning back.

No one, least of all people like Erick or myself, would want to see open strife in this country as long as there was any recourse to redress by election or through the courts. Along with the rising anger in this country as more and more ‘details’ of the monstrous 3,000 page bill are revealed (Nancy Pelosi: “You have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it”), is the increasingly voiced fear that Barack Hussein Obama and the Demarxist Congress would somehow manufacture a ‘national’ emergency and there would be no elections come November.

I personally think that would be a very foolish thing to do. But there is no doubt that the DeMarxists are even, as this is being written, working to steal the election using a ‘universal’ registration of voters – registering of illegal aliens. By passing an amnesty for some twenty million illegal aliens now residing in this country. Such a welfare-dependent, largely uneducated class of people would easily be led to vote for the padrone who is furnishing the goodies. In fact, that is very much how things work in the Latin American countries where the bulk of the illegals come from.

Stealing elections is something the Democrats have a lot of experience doing and I would expect them to take this route first. In their overweening arrogance they will expect complete success. We need to make sure we have some some surprises for them. In the final analysis we can put absolutely nothing past them. They have given ample proof that there is no depth of dishonesty, dishonor or connivance that they will not plumb.

Enemy To Our Friends, Friend To Our Enemies.

March 27, 2010

Barack Hussein Obama’s latest perfidy, among many, is in threatening our South Korean allies about retaliation against North Korea, for what (now that the lies are clearing) looks like the torpedoing of a South Korean Naval vessel in South Korean waters by the North Koreans. Fifty eight out of a crew of one hundred and four were reported as having been rescued. There were no confirmed reports of missing and dead as of this writing.

The South Korean Naval Ship 'Cheonan'

Sources in Washington reported that Obama moved quickly to run interference for the North Koreans. The war with the North has never really ended for the South with the cessation of hostilities in 1953. The border between the two countries at the ‘demilitarized zone’ is heavily fortified and has seen many incidents of provocation and infiltration of agents from the north over the years. On May 27, 2009, North Korea once again declared that a state of war existed between the two countries.

Obama’s interference is developing into a disturbing pattern of using US influence to interfere in our allies internal defense policies, while pandering appeasement to ruthless dictatorships around the globe. Obama’s most recent shameful treatment of Israel’s Prime Minister should have been, and was, considered by Israel to be a mortal insult. Further, Obama ordered that a shipment of advanced J-DAM deep penetrating bunker-buster bombs be turned around at Diego Garcia.

The Obama administration, far from supporting Israel against Iran and her mortal enemies on the East Bank, Hizballah in Lebanon and Syria, is actually supporting them against our greatest ally in the middle-east. There’s no other way to look at it.

There was an incursion into Israeli territory by Hamas which took the lives of two Israeli IDF members, followed by an intense fire-fight. In addition, reports of Pakistani and Iraqi Al-Qaeda infiltrating through tunnels have introduced the Taliban tactic of attacking from motorcycles using rocket propelled grenades. Israel’s enemies are ginning up the ante, perhaps in a test of Israel’s resolve.

Though most of Congress and the country at large are strong supporters of the State of Israel, Obama, his administration and his State Department must be considered to be antithetical to the best interests of Israel, Korea, and our own country for that matter.
It’s a sad and frightening circumstance when the supposed leader of the free world is behaving like anything but.

Bring It On! The Marxist-In-Chief Declares War On The American People.

March 26, 2010

Barack Hussein Obama has set himself and his party clearly against the great majority of the American people. I’m trying to make up my mind if it’s supreme hubris, stupidity or just ineptitude that would lead Obama to say something sure to inflame an already raging populace. Given there is some very serious and growing resistance to his agenda, you’d think he’d tone down the rhetoric somewhat.

It seems that now that the left is ginning up as much anti-patriot sentiment as they think we will swallow, they feel safe in throwing down the gauntlet. They’ll get all the resistance they can handle and more come November.

Eric Cantor

A word to the new Conservative Republican leadership. Do not allow the DeMarxist agitprop machine get ahead of us on this issue of all the ‘hate’ messages supposedly put out against the Congressional Democrats, though someone put a bullet through a window at Eric Cantor’s campaign offices. We can safely assume that that one wasn’t one of ours. The left pulls this crap all the time. Time after time our leadership has ceded the ground to them. They have to be called on their stuff… each and every time.

They pulled it with the Clinton administration and their ghost war against ‘the militias’, and because no one had the courage to call them on it a runaway Justice Dept. under an alcoholic predatory lesbian, Janet Reno, resulted in Ruby Ridge and the murders of three innocent people. Let us not forget the out and out ‘war’ waged against helpless women and children at Waco, Texas in the Branch Davidian debacle, resulting in the deaths of eighty American citizens in order to get one man.

This is what can happen if you, as our leaders, don’t make yourselves heard loud and clear. If anyone thinks there’s ten cents worth of difference between Janet Reno and Eric Holder in ruthlessness at pursuing the leftist agenda, there are still some leftover Madoff securities out there for you.

Another thing…there are some pseudo Conservatives who would attach themselves to the ‘Tea Party’ Patriot movement. We need to seek these people out and expose them. The last thing we need are more RINOs out there to sabotage the Conservative message.

Another issue which is likely to loom large in this next election cycle, and more so in 2012, will be that of ‘open primaries’. Local and state party leaders of states that allow for open primary elections should work to close them as soon as possible, lest we see a repeat of 2008 and the Democrat crossover voting which gave us John McCain, whose RINO baggage crippled a presidential bid which was already in severe trouble for Conservatives and Independents who were disillusioned by George Bush’s big government Republicans and their profligate spending.

The time for talking about what has or has not occurred in the Congress is over and we must focus on cleaning these clowns’ clocks in November. Time enough to remember who they are and how they voted as we remove them from office.

Fools, Bigots And Liars Hide Under The Dems’ ‘Big Blanket’.

March 24, 2010

While the nation seethes and counts the days until November, the Marxi-Socialists of the Democratic party and the statists of their stooley press are attempting the badly used-up tactic of manufacturing incidents calculated to bring shadows down on the Republicans, and most particularly the Conservative Patriot movement, or ‘Tea Party’ movement, as they so disparagingly term us.

Starting with the ‘supposed’ incident of two black Representatives being spat upon and called racial epitaphs, it’s really difficult to understand how in this day, with almost every cell phone video-capable and with some thousands of people around, no one obtained a single picture of anything that allegedly transpired. It wouldn’t be the first time the left has tried to gin up sympathy by using the race card to play the race card.

Guess what guys? That one ain’t playing so well again either. Does anyone out there remember Tawana Brawley and that epitome of truth and probity Al (Race Bait) Sharpton?

Brawley and Sharpton

It’s not just that such tactics are not beneath the Congressional Democrats and their Marxist radical allies, they are part and parcel of the playbook that statists use on a daily basis. We hear stories of threats made against Representatives’ lives and bricks thrown through windows. So many times in the past we’ve heard claims like this exploded in the light of truth, the instigators found to be either Democrat operatives or fringe nut-cakes from their own side, of which they have many. Like the one who trashed a Democrat campaign office during the last election.

It’s not that we don’t have some bad eggs on our own side, because we do. But they are quickly marginalized and their actions strongly disavowed. We of the Patriot Movement are not taken to encouraging violent or dishonorable behavior. If it ever comes to a fight, God willing it never does, they will wish to hell they’d never started it. That’s not what we want, we believe in the rule of law and the principles of the Constitution and the founders.

What we will not permit this time is the left to control the message as they have so many times in the past, through deceit, lies, deception and prevarication. Thanks to the wonder of the phenomenon known as the new media, which has left the old, lying statist media in the dust, the truth about their lies reaches millions almost instantaneously. They will no longer be permitted to shape arguments to their perverted will.

This country has learned a very hard truth from which it will never turn again. That lesson is that elections have consequences… voting has consequences and can never be taken for granted. We are a much sadder but wiser nation, one which is rapidly returning to its conservative roots and values.

It’s A Tea Party Thing – Dems’ Worst Nightmare Incarnate.

March 24, 2010

First of all, let me congratulate our ‘cousins’ to the north in Cannuckville for their courage in attempting to silence that one-woman invasion by Anne Coulter. Apparently, the brave Canadian student body, looking for all the world like a medieval Santa Casa witch-burning, surrounded a building with rocks and sticks.

To say that the Canadian government has lost the principles of honesty and freedom of thought and expression in the interest of political correctness, and the interests of ‘certain’ protected minority groups, is an understatement. Huge kudos to Anne for sticking it to them in the way that only she can do and refusing to fall for their intimidation. By the way, I checked with my editor Dee and she informs me that although these columns are read all over the world, and in some of the most unlikely places, not one has ever been published in Canada to her knowledge. Wonder what that’s about? (grins).

Protesters in Ottawa, after Anne Coulter's speech was canceled due to security concerns.

The next assault against America by Obama is going to be over illegal immigration, despite the smoke screen of cap and trade (tax) and environmental issues. With his majority in the House, and very likely the Senate as well, in danger of becoming ex post facto in November, and the Conservative Patriot movement (what the left continues to dismiss as ‘tea parties’) growing in momentum and becoming a real force in American politics, Obama’s second term may be problematic.

In order to salvage his presidency he knows he needs the votes the illegals can bring him. We have to fight this thing tooth and nail and stop it cold. Don’t let anyone tell you that there are 11-12 million illegals in this country, that’s the figure the left loves to throw out there. The actual figure is probably a lot closer to 20 million, maybe a little less since so many construction and other jobs that were heavily populated by illegals have gone away with the recession. I’ve heard that a number of illegals have gone back across the border.
Gee whizz! Sounds a lot like what would happen if our State and Federal governments cut off the goody train.

The saddest part about this whole thing is that the legitimate Hispanic/Latino population of this country is dead set against illegal immigration. The leftist press is only too happy to trumpet radical illegal immigrant support groups such as La Raza, MALDEF and ALIPAC and just as happy to ignore the millions of solid American citizens and legal immigrants of Latino descent. This doesn’t take into consideration the numbers of illegals of other nationalities which are numerous, and in the case of certain middle-eastern types, possible terrorists.

Start organizing in your communities now. Get involved on the local level, on school boards and in city councils. Contact your local Patriot groups and get active. Keep calling. Keep visiting Representatives’ and Senators’ offices.

The March To November – Where We Go Now.

March 23, 2010

It ain’t over ’til it’s over, and it’s not over by a long shot. Yesterday we watched as the Constitution of the United States of America had holes shot through it. I didn’t like it one bit and I resent it all to hell and gone. When I swore my oath before God to protect and defend that wonderful document I took it very seriously, as I do to this day.

Watching the elected Representatives of this country, who also swore that oath before God, lie, cheat, break the rule of law and the covenant of the Constitution, in order to force a massive Marxi-Socialist agenda against an unwilling populace has me and this country boiling mad.

Where do we go from here? As has been mentioned, Republican leaders wasted no time filing intent to recall notices. Legal and parliamentary maneuvering has begun in earnest. It’s not at all clear that this health care bill will have the clear sailing being touted by the LSM (lame stream media) and their leftist masters. There are some major irregularities with the passage of this legislation – and I do mean the Constitutional challenge variety.

The next phase of the war against totalitarianism as evinced by Barack Hussein Obama will be fought in the Senate. The Constitution requires that the language of both bills be identical. It also requires that both bills be passed before they are sent to the President, whose signature makes them law. In this case the House has passed the Senate bill exactly as written, and will attempt to make changes through a second bill which they will attempt to pass through the ‘reconciliation’ process which only requires 51 votes in the Senate. It is this process that the Republicans will attempt to obstruct at every turn.

The Democrats already know they are going to get creamed come November. That’s why you don’t hear a lot of giddy celebrating by the Democrats or the lame stream press… they are all busy doing damage control and trying to cover their tracks. Too late, we’ve got your names.

I don’t care where you live in this greatest country on Earth, find out who the Conservatives are in your neck of the woods who are challenging Democrat incumbents. Contact them and support them. Not only that, but support Conservative challengers in your state and local races. This is a bottom up process. It all starts with you in your neighborhood.

There are a handful of states out there that are actively challenging the federal government’s right to force their citizens to buy health insurance, something else which is clearly unconstitutional, and there are many more who are contemplating such challenges. The President and the Democrat Congress have not as much won a victory as ignited a conflagration, which is likely to consume them and their Marxist dreams for this country.

Washington, Ignore The American People At your Peril!

March 22, 2010

Stupak folds on a ‘promise’ from Obama for an executive order preventing federal funding for abortions. Start counting the remaining days in your tenure, Representative Stupak. Your constituents will know exactly what you did and exactly who you are. If you think that a Barack Obama who has yet to speak a word of truth will keep his word… I have some Madoff securities for you.

Stupak Announces His Yes Vote

An executive order can be reversed with a phone call as this one undoubtedly will. How does it feel to be responsible for the murders of possibly millions of unborn children, most of whom will come from minority families? Margaret Sanger would be proud of you.

It looks like the vote will pass, though the Senate will have plenty to say about it before things are said and done. Nancy Pelosi has just condemned many of her party, including herself, to an ignominious retirement. The Democrats can back-slap and congratulate themselves all they want, but what it really amounts to is a funeral dirge as over seventy percent of the American people are dead set against this bill, along with a historically united and rejuvenated conservative Republican party.

In the upcoming days we will learn more about the backroom deal making. The recipients of those deals can first kiss their Congressional careers goodbye and then watch their promised cushy appointments being brought to the light of day in the Senate and blocked. Conservatives, the ‘new’ face of the Conservative Republican party, and the bulk of the population of this country have now been welded into a united front. Democrats fresh from the vote euphoria, however brief, are now going to start frantically covering their tracks, or try to.

Too late, the vote count is official and no amount of Politburo doublespeak will keep the American people from casting you from office and wiping your dust from beneath our feet. We will do whatever we have to do, however long it takes, to reverse this unconstitutional and immoral legislation. Like many historical enemies of this country, you have badly underestimated the American people.
