Another Memorial Day.

May 31, 2011

There’s not much I can contribute to the many flowery tributes to our fallen heroes that we saw and heard yesterday. There are just not enough superlatives. On this day that we set aside in remembrance of our war dead, I’m really gratified to see the huge amount of tribute and attention being given to our living military men and women… and their families.

We have, thanks to God, the finest military in the world. They’re an all volunteer military, which means every one of them is a professional… and please don’t give me the saw about minorities and poor whites being forced into the military due to poor economic conditions. These days, the recruiters won’t even talk to you without a high school diploma.

Today’s battlefield is a far cry from those of previous wars. The speed with which information can be passed, and tactical situations changed, on today’s battlefield mean that the average soldier, sailor, Marine or airman has to know far more than did a rifleman at Belleau Wood.

Combat in Afghanistan and Iraq is physically demanding and mentally draining. The enemy is quite literally everywhere and nowhere is totally safe. That’s not the worst part. These magnificent men and women are expected to win in an environment where their own commander-in-chief is not only actively working for their defeat, he’s crippling them of their ability to accomplish their mission by gutting as much of the military as he can. He’s also telegraphed to the Taliban when he intends to reduce our forces in Afghanistan… thereby making everyone’s job more dangerous and in the process giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

Some might call that treason. It certainly gives pause for thought. We hear more coming out about our nascent fuhrer actively seeking ways to circumvent the second amendment via executive order.
I think that would just about tear it for most of us.

I Hate Weekend News Cycles.

May 30, 2011

I guess that’s why most daily columnists don’t write on weekends. Our own research indicates about 1/3 of the readership on weekends. There’s not much going on as a rule, and much of what is out there is second and third tier reporting of last week’s stuff… so I usually save material for the weekends that I normally wouldn’t write about during the week.

Recently, we’ve had a whole series of events and occurrences that have interfered with getting articles out on our intended daily schedule. Everything from work (which is a good thing these days) to my 20 year old son’s mysterious, nearly fatal disease, now completely cured, thank God. Then, within a week, raccoons in the walls of the house chewing up my DSL wires and effectively shutting us down.

So, no more raccoons (we, uh, urged them to vacate… grins), and I’ve made the switch to fiber optic which just now became available here. So, hopefully, Dee and I can get back to some sort of normalcy getting this thing out… no more exotic diseases or critter infestations for a while, thank you. Not that I have anything to complain about. I’m a cup half-full kinda guy… very grateful for what I have and very aware that there are all kinds of folks out there who are hurting very badly and have lost everything.

I’ve been watching the evolution of a revolution for the past two and almost one-half years. I’m damned proud to be a part of that revolution… pulling America back from the abyss of Marxist/Socialist penury. We won a great victory last November. We can win another huge historic election in 2012… but we have to stay focused. We can’t let the DeMarxists and their symbiotic stooges of the Lame Stream Media shunt us off on sideshow issues, which is something they are very practiced at.

Today is Memorial Day. I can see the lights on the flag monument of the Golden Gate National Cemetery from my living room windows. To me, it’s a constant reminder of the very real debt we owe to all those magnificent heroes who have given, and are giving us, everything they have to give to keep us free.

It’s up to us… you and me… and millions upon millions just like us, to ensure that the sacrifice made by millions of American Patriots is not in vain.
Join us.

Incredibly Inept Or Incredibly Wimpy? Who’s Leading Who?

May 29, 2011

Something just isn’t right with our vaunted Republican leadership… with the exception of a few timid forays into the morass that is the DeMarxist fiscal nightmare… you’d never know that we were being governed by the Conservative juggernaut that caused the greatest political upset in decades.

Somebody ought to tell Mr Boehner that tweeting and twittering isn’t going to get it. You can’t run this thing by remote control. Tweets, twitters, Skypes and other evil sounding names may be okay for the flash dissemination of news and the like. It’s never going to take the place of a principled leadership standing up and calling the Marxists on every single lie, distortion or outright invention out of whole cloth that they utter.

That’s what leadership is about. You don’t allow the opposition to make an issue its own and then sit on your hands and hope it will go away or, like so many establishment Republicans, try to ride it out doing weak and lame-assed damage control.

The reason that the backbone of the American electorate, the Conservative Patriot movements, have been so restive and uncertain is just that. We don’t see a consistent Conservative voice getting our message out and nailing the DeMarxists by calling them out on their lies.There have been flashes of brilliance in an otherwise murky landscape.

Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor seem to be the only Republican leaders in the whole crop who get it. I’m sure there are those out there who feel that I’m painting these guys with too wide a brush.

I remind you that this is the race of our lifetimes and that in fact it will determine whether or not America shall remain a free country of free people.

Run, Chris, Run.

May 27, 2011

We’re hearing a battery of bleats out there about Governor Chris Christie as a possible presidential candidate. And were it based only on the tough choices he has forced his state to confront, and the skill with which he’s stood up to his state’s unions and their rent-a-goons, you’d have to say that he might just be a good choice if he could be convinced to run. That’s if you didn’t look any farther… I did, as have some other people.

If you look at what Christie has said on some very key issues for Conservatives, the luster starts to dull. He has stated that he wants to see ‘A Pathway To Citizenship’ for illegal immigrants. Sounds a little like our erstwhile presidential candidate, doesn’t it?

Even more troubling for Conservatives will be the Governor’s view of the Second Amendment. It won’t take much more research than to look up Christie’s 1995 anti-gun ad campaign during his run for State Assembly. That would do it for most Patriot gunners right there, I’m sure.

The final nail in Chris Cristie’s presidential aspirations should be his espousal of ‘green energy’, which is scarily reminiscent of The Anointed One’s assault on domestic energy production, and the coal industry in particular.

So it would seem that for all Mr. Christie’s accomplishments in reigning in New Jersey’s wild excesses… he is, in fact, another Republican In Name Only. It is my firm belief that this country cannot survive with a moderate RINO at the helm.

Keep your eyes and ears wide open. Don’t let the LSM (lame stream media) or the establishment Repubics foist more phony candidates on us. They both like to use the same means to different ends.

The way I read it, the establishment old guard aren’t even that adverse to losing an election, as long as it maintains them in their ‘comfort zone’… which then logically and tragically becomes our discomfort zone.

And What Will You Do For Your Encore, Ali Obama?

May 24, 2011

It’s going to be a tough act to follow… selling out our strongest and best ally in all of the world. Now, Obama has proclaimed loudly that “No, no, you guys got it all wrong… I didn’t say what I said, even though the entire world heard me say it”.

Once again, I’m amazed at the incoherence of the Obama White House. I think the Muslims in his government have encouraged and influenced him in this most boneheaded move of all foreign policy boondoggles… though it should suit the banana slugs over at State just fine. Antisemitism is the mothers milk of their warped minds, and has been ever since the US State Department refused entry to a ship full of Jewish refugees fleeing Hitler’s SS and the holocaust. Those people were returned to Europe. To their deaths.

The attitude at Smoggy Bottom hasn’t changed since… it’s long since time for someone to clean that agency out. It would be inexcusable if they were good at what their job is supposed to be… but they’re not. Their philosophy cozies right up to Lord Obama The Inept’s, though… they never saw a ‘Palestinian’ whose posterior they would not firmly attach their lips to.

I think this country has had about all it cares to stomach of The Inept’s Muslim outreach. As a matter of fact, there is going to come a time when the Muslims in this country are going to have to fish or cut bait. America’s tolerance for Islamic infiltration of our schools, our childrens’ curriculum, our financial institutions and our governments will attenuate very quickly as soon as we have a Constitutional government worth the name. The sedition and treason laws need to be brought out of obscurity and enforced across the board.

Obama’s like the snake in the high grass around camp… you can’t take your eye off him for an instant.

Newt’s Long March.

May 22, 2011

It’s going to be a long road for our friend Newt Gingrich, as he sets off down that long, lonesome presidential campaign trail. The campaigning is brutal under the best of circumstances, but the remnants of the Lame Stream press, in sync with DeMarxist union thuggery, are going to make this an especially politically-bloody gauntlet which every Republican / Conservative candidate will be forced to run.

The left has its knives out, and with the boorishness which has exemplified the behavior of the left thus far you can be assured that wives and children will not be spared. Newt comes into this race with some old ‘infidelity’ issues which should be history, but are now being exposed all over again with the Schwarzenegger revelation. Fair or not, it’s going to be hashed out all over again.

To say that Newt stepped in it last weekend is giving a new meaning to the term ‘understatement’. Newt has spent all week doing damage control… some of it sounded convincing.

I mentioned that I had a real problem with the direction I had seen some of Newt’s thinking taking, at least through his public utterances. He sounded like he wasn’t in sync with the movement of the country into Constitutional Patriotism… his early criticisms of the Tea Party Patriots have not been forgotten. Neither have we forgotten Mr Gingrich and ‘Nancy-of-the-smiling-eyes-Pelosi’ sitting there and telling us we had to find solutions for ‘climate change‘. I guess Newt has us all pegged as deniers.

Newt Gingrich has a powerful intellect. I’m just not sure about his focus… or his critical judgment.

Obama’s Humiliating Repudiation: Bibi Takes Him To The Woodshed.

May 21, 2011

It was classic… Obama trying what appears to me to be a last-ditch desperation grasp at ‘shaping’ the middle-east ‘peace process’ and leaving behind the imprimatur of an insanely dysfunctional foreign policy, in which Hussein Obama sheds any vestige of disguising his Muslim leanings by throwing Israel, our strongest ally in the middle-east, under the bus.

Obama, the spoon-fed academic Marxist, has no sense of history, or geo-political reality for that matter. Apparently, neither do the Marxist savants he has shaping his policies. The very fact that his ‘advisers’ allowed him to call for Israel to fall back to the pre-1967 war boundaries is… well… stunning in its naivete.

The blithe, arrogant assumption that the world would tremble at the sage words of the Anointed One, and that the Israelis would finally see their place in Obama’s Jew-hating universe, is breathtaking to see.

Barack Hussein has no real world experience to bring to the table. He isn’t equipped with much of anything else, either. In point of fact, he is without a doubt the most ill-equipped president in all of US history to deal with virtually any issue.

Binyamin Netanyahu, or ‘Bibi’, is everything Obama is not. He took Obama to the woodshed, simultaneously giving His Magnificence and his factually challenged government a badly needed perspective on middle-eastern history, and shredding Obama’s entire policy presumption in one smoothly delivered, concisely worded repudiation of all things Obama. In fact, he made Barack Hussein Obama look exactly like the lightweight he is. I’m having fun watching the Lame Stream Demarxist press trying to spin this as anything but the humiliating rejection that it was.

Israel is a tiny country, with a population of only 7 million, 4 hundred something thousand souls, surrounded by 344 million largely hostile Arabs. She can’t afford a mistake. There is something that her militant Islamic foes should consider… Israel has had the capability to reduce her enemies to atomic slag since the late 1950s. They also have multiple delivery systems and an effective second strike capability.

The very fact that Israel has not used this ‘final solution’ to the Islamic threat to their country should give any sane person pause for reflection. But then, that would presume finding some sanity among middle-eastern fanaticism.

Obama, Ardent Anti-Semite.

May 20, 2011

If there are any of my Israeli friends who have any vestige of belief that Barack Hussein Obama is harboring any good will at all toward Jews in general, or Israel in particular, Obama’s speech yesterday (if that’s what it could be called) should have ended any such illusions.

IDF soldiers guarding the border with Syria.

Obama’s servile pandering to the Islamic fundamentalists is leaving no doubt about where his true sympathies lie… it’s readily apparent here in the United States where there are Muslims embedded throughout his administration, Muslims infiltrating our educational and financial sectors, universally whining and decrying the ‘unjust’ treatment that they receive at our hands.

Obama just might be able to break the deathlike grip that the DeMarxists, and all things socialist, have had on the electoral habits of America’s Jewry. Obama’s attack on Israel… because that’s what it was… will most certainly draw the ire of the many American supporters of Israel… and that’s about 80% of the country. Hopefully, another nail in Obama’s political coffin. He’s been collecting a lot of those lately.

Stated plainly, Israel would have to be completely out of their collective minds and bent on sure and certain national suicide to agree to a single thing Barack Obama said. He’s not going to get any ‘peace process’ going now or ever. His goal is the goal of the Arab Brotherhood, Hamas and Hezbollah… that is to say, the ultimate destruction of the State of Israel.

Maybe it’s just my Marine instinct peeking through but to me, but the simultaneous incursion across three borders by Islamist ‘protesters’ looked a lot like a rehearsal. What was frankly disturbing was the somewhat fragmented and confused response of the IDF.

Hey guys, it’s like this… if the stuff goes down you may not get a second chance to react. Your enemy has been out in the hallway lifting weights and doing push-ups, while you’ve been playing pat-a-cake with Obama and the Hildebeast over how much defensible border to give away to people who want you dead.

The Plot Thickens.

May 19, 2011

It’s no secret that there are no clear GOP front runners appearing on the scene, and the remaining potential heavies are waiting on the side. It’s also no secret that the DeMarxist press would love to give America the impression that the Republican Party is hopelessly fragmented. Sprinkle that with a liberal (cough) dose (this is sounding worse by the second) of Obama the Unbeatable.

I joined the Marine Corps at a time when there was a move to curb the wonderfully colorful language in general use throughout the Corps. So the troops, good Marines all, trained to adapt and overcome, invented words to take the place of the proscribed language. For instance, ‘Horse S—‘ became ‘Horse Pucky’, etc. That’s what I have to say to the brain dead Lame Stream press today… horse pucky.

Obama the Unbeatable… Obama’s chickens are coming home to roost. You can’t change the narrative anymore. It’s simple really. America no longer has to depend on them for news or reporting. Our own New Media has given Americans the choice of whether to listen to the garbage pumped out by the Lame Stream 24/7, or the factual reporting and commentary of the thousands of American Patriots who comprise most of the new media.

I heard that disgusting slime Demarxist, UpChucky Schumer, pontificating on the demise of the Conservative movement caused by the Tea Party, or some such bleatings. Hey, Chucky… go crawl back under your rock.

What we are waiting for is one strong true conservative to step up and take on Obama. That’s why Americans responded the way they did to Donald Trump… many of us felt all along that his was not really a serious bid. But, he stood his ground and challenged Obama over and over about the birth certificate… and managed to generate enough heat to the point where Obama’s handlers felt he had to respond. Though some people out there are having real problems with this most recent of his ‘birth documents’, Trump forced his hand.

That’s what we’re looking for in leadership. Is it out there?
We’d better pray that it is.

The Obama White House Scrambles To Overcome Disastrous Predictions.

May 17, 2011

Submit your narrative… they’ll take all the help they can get up there in the rarefied atmosphere of Socialist/Marxist academia, with whom our wannabe dictator has surrounded himself.

They’re witnessing a ‘dimple‘. That’s a bump in reverse for Obama, folks, despite the disgustingly pandering, slobbering headlines lauding Osama… whoops, Obama… for his ‘boldness’, ‘fearless leadership’ and ‘decisiveness’. It was really disgusting. Stated somewhat indelicately… it was enough to gag any self respecting maggot.

You’ve gotta feel for them though. It’s a real rough sell. The drive bys were calling for Obama to gain anywhere from 5% to a wildly prayerful 15%, by one cable lefty with no viewership. Then, after all the Lame Stream types had exhausted all their superlatives on Barack Hussein and each other, in the light of a more sober morning that 15% approbation for the glorious leader had become a -2, as his ratings again began to free-fall.

What this should tell us is that the American people were not fooled by all the hoopla, smoke, mirrors and utter disorganization placed on display for the American people to see… and judge. All credit went to the magnificent special operations warriors who pulled off this very dicey, very dangerous raid in the middle of what has to be considered as hostile territory, nominal ally or not.

Very little of the adulation lavished upon these nameless, faceless heroes rubbed off on poor Obama. Can’t get no respect, no how. And that is the narrative. He doesn’t have anything to run on. His every move, his every act has been a significant failure. It’s harder and harder to believe that it hasn’t been purposeful.

America has had it with being lied to and being attacked from within. Tea Party?!… They haven’t seen a Tea Party until they see what’s coming between now and 2012. You can feel the energy out there. They’re going to feel it too.
