‘Tis The Season.

September 30, 2010

Jim DeMint rightly sounded off, calling out Congressional Democrats for leaving Washington without addressing the Bush tax cut extensions, despite the fact that more than thirty Democrats also voted to remain and take up the issue.

Jim DeMint

It should be noted that at least some of these good folks are probably in real hot water in their districts and are desperate to be seen as fighting for the middle class, whom most of them despise.

For all their care in infiltrating and disguising their intent the Marxists simply couldn’t restrain themselves and the wave of ‘progressive’ policy, starting with the Democrat majority of 2006 and culminating with George Bush, caving in to the hysterical drumbeat of the DeMarxists with the election of Barack Obama imminent, and ‘turning aside’ from his conservative principles acquiescing to the TARP bailouts, paved the way for the firestorm of radical leftist assaults on the economy, American citizens and our way of life.

We should thank them in a way, the left, I mean. Probably nothing else would have made them show themselves for who they really are. They were so overconfident and so determined to force their agenda down our throats, that it was like they had wax earplugs and blinders on.

The left has always been arrogant. It comes from the academic intellectual cloister where communism breeds. Such self-proclaimed superiority leads to arrogance.

Example: John ‘Gunboats’ Kerry sniveling that voters, “don’t always pay attention”, and that we fall for slogans. Yeah, Kerry. You wish we didn’t pay attention. Don’t worry, John, if we run out of slogans we’ll borrow some from Democrats… you all have plenty, and they’re nice and light too. Because they’re as empty as a beer can at a home football party.

It’s really important that these people have no opportunity to rule this country any longer.
You need to start talking to everyone you know. Carry the message of freedom.

The Insipid Mr Obama.

September 29, 2010

What has happened to Barack Hussein Obama will go down as the most spectacular rise and fall in US political history. Barack Obama hasn’t a clue what goes on in the minds and hearts of Americans. I saw a clip of Ann Coulter, where she states that Obama is not a Muslim… he’s an atheist. Ann, I’m not so sure.

I don’t believe he’s a Christian either. Twenty years in the front row of a Black Liberation Theology church, run by a crackpot American-hating anti-semite, with strong ties to The Nation of Islam and through them the Muslim Brotherhood, is not exactly mainstream Christianity.

Let’s see… if Obama only attended about half the year, that’s say, 26 weeks for 20 years. That’s 520 hours he sat there and listened to a race-baiter vent hatred against whites, Jews and the United States of America. People just don’t hang around places like that unless there’s something there for them. Obama was there because he wanted to be there.

Trinity United Church of Christ espouses a radical theology which gives God and Christ short shrift, while teaching Marx rather than Mary and the story of Christ. Obama was a Muslim for the most formative years of his life in Indonesia. Barack Obama’s mother was a Marxist also, an atheist and had a penchant for marrying Muslim men.

Since she was an anthropologist, working in the field much of the time, Barack and his sister would be left frequently with their grandparents in Hawaii, where Barack’s grandfather introduced him to avowed communist Frank Marshall Davis. Barack was to be taught by this man until he left Hawaii for Occidental College in California.

With this background in mind, it’s not at all surprising that Obama views America through a foreigner’s eyes. He neither sees nor hears the pulse of America. He never bonded with a father… barely bonded with his mother. All of his known associations in college and subsequently in Chicago politics were radicals or ‘progressives’, which I guess is the new “I don’t mean what you think I mean” slogan. They don’t like ‘communist’ or ‘Marxist’ because they can’t sell any votes that way. So they always make things sound like something they’re not.

Barack Obama has no allegiance to this country. Barack Obama despises this country, and is actively working to destroy it to somehow raise his ideal society out of the ashes. That much is pretty apparent from the way he and the clown college have been depth-charging our economy.

The nation is going to be well rid of Mr Obama… but first we have to pull his fangs and make sure they stay pulled. That’s why this upcoming November 2 will be the most important day of your life. RegisterVote!

The Incredible Vanishing Congress.

September 28, 2010

Congress might have been able to clear Washington faster in the face of something like the bubonic plague, but not by much. Washington is political poison for Democrats. They chose to leave town without addressing the extension of the Bush tax cuts. Not that their reception will be that much better out in their districts.

People, many people who have never before participated in the political process, are energized… not in the sense of Obama’s vacant-eyed, vacuous-expressioned, mind-numbed robots, parroting glitzy slogans without meaning to other mind-numbed robots.

These people are not just energized. They have seen the threat to this country and have taken up the challenge. They have become more politically aware and have joined other constitutional patriots in what has become the most powerful political influence in the nation. This is not a third party. These are individual citizens deciding that we’ve had enough and we’re not going to take it any more.

The DeMarxists, and some eight or nine Republicans, are not going to be pleased with the reception awaiting them in their districts. What is incredible to me is that these politicians (Congress), who were hired for but one reason, to do the will of the people under the Constitution of the United States of America, have been able to wall off the voices of American citizens while pursuing policies of personal aggrandizement and enrichment, at the expense of the American citizen. And we let them get away with it.

You see, I’m one of those people who believe that we’ve just plain gone to sleep at the switch. We did it over and over again, time after time, lulled to sleep by the siren song of leftist agitprop and the promise of impossible dreams and empty promises.

This upcoming election is going to present us with clearly defined choices. We can vote for freedom and a return to a Constitutional Republic. Or we can vote to destroy the greatest beacon of freedom the world has ever seen forever. Because if we were to lose, that beacon just might be extinguished permanently. It’s an easy choice.

The Clown College Meets Scaramouche.

September 27, 2010

It came off like the Keystone Kops meet the Three Stooges. It was supposed to be funny… I think? It wasn’t. It was ugly, demeaning, and a very poor attempt to draw attention to issues… having a white comedian championing illegal (my word) alien field workers, and illegals in this country generally.

Zoe Lofgren

Whose idea was it to bring Mr Stephen Colbert in front of the House Judiciary Committee’s sub-committee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security and International Law, anyway? What can somebody who went out to do one day of labor, sponsored by immigrant groups as a political stunt, add to discourse on the subject?

I wonder why they didn’t call on one or more of the tens of thousands of students who work the fields during summer break all over the nation. I worked the fields in the summer in the San Joaquin valley. Hey McCain!… it ain’t Yuma, but it’s damned close… 110-120 in the sun, with little or no air movement. But, it was a job; I was a student and I needed the money.

I purposely avoided writing about this for a couple of days because the whole charade made me so darned angry I was afraid I’d write something I’d regret. Not that it would get past Dee’s hawk-like scrutiny. Dee is the greatest editor you could possibly ask for… sometimes I think she’s channeling Attila the Hun though. But I digress.

Zoe Lofgren (D-CA16) is the sub-committee chairwoman, which should tell just about every conservative exactly where Colbert and Lofgren are coming from on the illegal immigration issue.

I’ve saved the sub-committee for last. You don’t belong in office… you’ve demeaned the process you are sworn to uphold. We’ve known that you’re a bunch of clowns for a very long time. I’m glad you’ve finally admitted it in public.

A Remarkable Story.

September 26, 2010

From a journalistic standpoint, the meteoric rise and even more startling fall  of the giant Democratic socio-Marxist monster combined with the massive uprising of the American people, is being on the front row giving witness to truly historic events. From a political standpoint, it’s the continual efforts in favor of the goal of winning our country back. The greater the estimates I hear regarding the creaming the Democrats are destined to take, the more vigilant and suspicious I become.

The DeMarxists are masters of the underhanded and will seldom allow the legality, and most specifically the morality, of issues to deter them. Yet most of the time when confronted they will back down. It’s just like when you get into it with one of them (the left). They will not argue the substance of any issue, but will instead attempt to redirect the question so as to be able to demagogue it. Failing that, they’ll go into the usual canned clichés and if they still can’t get through to you, they’ll burn the barn and use terms like ‘birther’ or ‘homophobe’, and of course there is always the ultimate smear du jour, ‘racist’.

We can expect to see every sleazy trick in the book. In fact, we are already seeing the desperate personal attacks being mounted against conservative candidates in New York and the assault on Senator John Boehner, both prime examples of DeMarxist skullduggery.

It’s not going to work. Or at least, it’s not going to affect enough people to alter the political blitzkrieg that’s a bare 43 days away and counting.

Barack Hussein Obama is as lame a duck as any president in living memory. He is so far outside the frame of American thinking as to have created an alien environment in the White House. He and his entire Marxist government do not have the faintest idea what makes this country run, and even less about what it was, and is, that makes this the greatest country in the world and in the history of the world.

I’ve organized my extended family clan into a conservative voting spear to thrust into the belly of the liberal beast here in the Bay Area… some of these folks have never voted before. That’s something you can do too. Start with family and friends. There’s not a whole lot of time left.
Get excited! Get involved!

Grasping At Fictional Straws.

September 25, 2010

Why should anything be different during election time than during the normal day-to-day machinations of government? Well, my reply to that question would be that the re-election hopefuls would try to show themselves in the best possible light.

Polish the halo a little, carefully apply some make-up to cover the unsightly blemishes and, although perhaps difficult and not true to character, at least appear genuine and sound honest.

Promises and track-record are the two criteria that enable the average member of the electorate, the majority of whom, unfortunately, are pretty clueless when it comes to politics. Their main source of information is the traditional media, nearly all of which is biased to the left. While the internet has made huge inroads in educating and/or informing the public on political affairs, most are more content to spend their free time on Facebook or checking out the latest showbiz gossip than reading political analysis sites.

Even internet news sites are biased in favor of the left, in some respects. This has come about from the fact that the most popular sites are extensions of existing traditional media, whether newspaper or television. Here is a list of the ‘Top Twenty’ that I found, although it did not contain a publication date:

4 Google News
5 Reuters
6 Yahoo News
7 BBC News Online
8 World News
10 FOXnews
12 CBC News Online
14 The Associated Press
15 Guardian Unlimited
16 NewsLink
17 The New York Times
18 EmergencyNet News
19 Consortium News

I think you can see the general trend.

It is this overwhelming deluge of mostly biased information that is responsible for most of the major mistakes in recent years. Goebbels would have been impressed by the way the constant hammering home of promises and fabrications on the human senses has created a society where those that see through the falsehoods are ostracized and deemed ‘crazy’.

Tell the people a lie often enough and they will believe it. Man-made global warming, a better health care system, hope and change…. I don’t need to go in to the details, just cast your mind back to the frenzy of the 2008 presidential election, or the daily dose of doom from the climate-change soothsayers.

The American people have seen through their lies. A part of American exceptionalism is the ability to question and analyze the known facts, to filter out the rhetoric and lies. What remains is either something of no substance, or an agenda so repulsive that not even its designers would dare reveal to the public. If the electorate vote for the faux sheep’s clothes, the inner wolf gets a free pass.

This brings us to the current mid-term elections. The present Congress now has a track-record for the electorate to view. It is no longer about promises but cold, hard facts. The facts are that they, and the president, have failed in all respects. Not only have they failed the American people, the majority of whom are generally center-right, but failed the hard-line leftists in their own party. If a government with a Democrat president and large Democrat majorities in both the House and Senate can not get their radical legislation through, the game is up and they might as well take an early shower.

With a history they’d rather forget and a president that is now causing embarrassment to his own party, the Democrats are left with only one option. They can not campaign on success stories or policies, so the demonization of the opposition is the final line of defense.

The labeling of Mr and Mrs Average American as extremist is the biggest mistake they have made to date. If it was not so pathetic and downright offensive, it would be funny. The thought of Grandma, law-abiding and hard-working all her life, initiating a terrorist attack on the Capitol.

The announcement that they are launching a dirt-digging exercise on Republicans, including John Boehner, proves conclusively that they have no respect for anything or anyone, except of course for themselves, their failed ideological policies and their status.
Make the most of that status, you won’t have it for much longer!

Jim DeMint in 2012?

September 24, 2010

As far as I’m concerned, 2012 is much too far away for prognostication, for all the noise about Sarah Palin’s visit to Iowa. Jim certainly hasn’t outwardly indicated that he intends a run, by word or deed. Still, it’s a fascinating scenario to imagine.

Jim DeMint is a solid Conservative guy with down-to-earth values, and a willingness to stand tall despite the odds. He has scorched the hides of some of the Republican establishment by his very public and effective support for Tea Party Patriot candidates.

He’s probably catching hell in the cloak room from some of the effete of the party for soiling himself with the grass roots, who the party and politically-entitled look on as a rude impediment to maintaining business-as-usual, so that the party anointed may rule from afar, never having to actually soil their hands with the work of the people.

All the while, they are proclaiming to all and sundry how much they’ve sacrificed and how hard they’ve worked for the people. These Republican ‘elites’ really behave as though the world rotates around them. They also feel threatened by the strength and popularity of the Patriot movement. They also understand that the Tea Party and the Patriots could be their ticket to political irrelevance.

With the political landscape of the party changing in front of them, perhaps for ever, they have reason to be worried. I don’t know if Jim DeMint is planning to run in 2012 or not. Right now, like the rest of us, he’s thrown all his resources into helping us defeat the Marxists in November.
I do know that we could do far worse than a Jim DeMint.

Hoo-Rah, General James Amos USMC, Semper Fidelis, Sir!

September 23, 2010

General James Amos, USMC, has given the spirits of his men a great boost by sounding off on the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ issue. Amos is next in line to be chosen as Commandant of the Marine Corps, on the upcoming retirement of now Commandant General James Conway.

General James Amos.

General Amos is a Marine aviator, a jet pilot by trade… not a hard-nosed infantry officer like General Conway. Did Obama think that Amos would be a soft touch? Amos and Conway have both been keenly aware of what the men in the Corps were saying… and thinking.

Amos spoke for the Corps as a whole when he said that unit morale would suffer. He said that the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy had suited the unique requirements of the Marine Corps.

I wrote in an article, a month or so ago, that the Marine Corps is a very special place. Morale is high and unit cohesion is as well. I count myself to have been honored and blessed to have been a United States Marine. Coming from an infantry background myself, I know how Marines react to such things. I know, for instance, that no one wants to be in the shower with some gay making calves eyes at them. The complicated relationship issues that gays are prone to are disruptive as well.

I wouldn’t want to be in a fighting hole with someone I knew to be openly gay. I’d be uncomfortable, wondering whether he’d be concerned with the enemy to our front, or my front. The repeal of ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ is a harpoon aimed at the heart of the military.

In my opinion, having gays serving openly in the military would be damaging to good order and discipline. Ultimately, I believe that it would bring an end to our military as we know it.

Power To The People.

September 22, 2010

It seems that I heard this so much during the 60s that it became like white noise… the rise of the counter-revolutionary left, backed and controlled by well-funded, disciplined communist party members.

This was not so much the American people seeking power, as it was a variegated group of disparate splinter leftists and anarchists, orchestrated by people whose goal is the destruction of the United States of America. Sound familiar? Well, it should. Those same 60s radicals and anarchists, for the most part, ended up in academia… the only place where Marxist / Leninist theorems work.

The truth of that is the estimated 100 million souls that have been killed by communism worldwide. The entire mechanism for the takeover of the US government was in place shortly after Vietnam. The same leftist academics that were shouting communist slogans during the war are now teaching them in our colleges and universities.

The so-called lame stream press is a classic example of the applied teaching of our leftist schools. It’s spooky how quickly the tame lap dog press of the left picks up the DNC line, every talking head and wind-up doll from coast to coast all bleating the same message at the same time.

There’s an uprising out there. No, it’s nothing like the fabulous sixties. It’s ordinary people standing up and doing extraordinary things. As this movement, this push back against the socialists who would take our freedoms, has grown and matured it has evolved into the most potent political entity in the nation. The people are calling upon their American heritage and have drawn a line in the sand.
There’s a yellow flag at that line in the sand… It says ‘Don’t Tread On Me’.

The Smell Of Freedom Is In The Air.

September 21, 2010

Hey, folks! Don’t get big heads over this, but the responses the Tea Party groups and Patriot organizations have been getting from you has them growing by leaps and bounds. The results we’ve been having, getting the Conservative message out in our own blocks, streets, cities and towns, has been nothing less than spectacular.

People who have never before in their lives been politically active are joining in some numbers. Disaffected, burnt out or just plain disgusted Democrats are coming into our movement in increasing numbers. The all important independents are here in strength… these folks are tending toward strong Conservatism. And finally, the Conservatives themselves, the ones who were so disgusted that they just picked up their marbles and went home and stayed home clear through the 2008 presidential race, virtually ensuring an Obama victory, are back.

As ugly and painful as these two years have been, there’s no way the country would have rebelled against John McCain as they have against Barack Hussein Obama’s Marxist power grab. Oh, there would have been plenty of dissent to McCain, but nothing even approaching the tidal wave of voter retribution that has been heating to a slow boil since 2008.

Americans are such a rare breed. The left and other fringe nut cakes really don’t understand what a great and special place this is, this America. It exists nowhere else on Earth and nothing like it has ever been seen before.

The Conservative rebellion is here. I’m proud of my fellow Americans. For a very long time, I would go about my business mumbling, “How long are we going to take this crap?” and “When are we going to stand up and fight?” Well, we’re not taking it any more, and the time is now.
The smell of freedom is here and it’s really exciting.
