Ricochet Romance.

September 30, 2011

In again, out again… the will-o’-the wisp of American politics is/is not harboring heretofore unthinkable aspirations for the presidency. Chris Christie is the elixir du jour of the northeast Rockefeller Republicans.

Why are these money rich establishment Republicans so anxious to lure Christie into running? Answer that question for yourselves and you’ll know everything you need to know about Governor Christie. Christie is not a Conservative, or anything even approaching a Conservative.

His anti-second amendment sympathies would and should do it for him with most freedom-loving Americans. By being as radical as he is against personal concealed carry of firearms, in one of the most crime-ridden states in the union, he is blatantly saying to the citizens of New Jersey “No! You can’t have the right to defend yourselves and your neighbors”.

Every state that has permitted personal concealed carry laws to be enacted has not only not seen a decrease in the use of firearms, but has in every case seen a marked decrease in violent crime. There’s an old saying that has a lot of truth in it… “An armed society is a polite society”.

Christie also has much to answer to Conservatives with respect to not joining with over one half of the States that are actively suing to repeal Obamacare. How does that trite colloquial saying go again? “If’n you’re not for us, you’re agin’ us”.

The northeast Repubics may be looking for a moderate to liberal Republican to run, but it’s going to be the Conservatives who control the bulk of the votes, along with the so-called Independents who have deserted the Democrat Party wholesale. There aren’t going to be a lot of undecided voters this cycle. The entire machine that swept Barack Obama to power is crumbling beneath their fingertips and the DeMarxists are desperate to find something, anything, that works.

In perhaps the greatest instance of political over-reach in history the DeMarxists, under Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, dropped all pretense of bi-partisan anything and went as far as to exclude Republican lawmakers entirely. Their acts were of highly questionable legality and completely unconstitutional.

I said in articles that I wrote during that period in 2009 that they were exposing themselves to the American people for what they were, and I predicted that the American people would rise up in their righteous anger… and they have.

It should be apparent to even the densest Repubic that the ground rules have changed. We’re not going to let them foist off another John McCain or Bob Dole on us… Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, it doesn’t matter. Our choice will be based on a candidate’s principled conservative values, or lack thereof. Not on media blather, or push and focus polling.
Chris Christie will not get Conservative support.

Into The Shadow.

September 26, 2011

Have you ever wondered just what happens to all those people we keep reading about in the news, and in the government’s seriously flawed demography, who have just dropped out of sight in this depression? Yes… depression.

I’ve had it with the cutesy defining of a recession that in no way ended in 2009, as the politicians and their pet economic idiot savants claim. “Why, Skip” you say, “we had two quarters of positive growth in 2009”. Okay, and if you believe that math, I have some shares in Solyndra for sale for you, cheap.

Ask just about anyone in the great San Joaquin and Central Valleys here in California, agricultural regions that could have fed the world with their bounty, if the recession has ever ended. Ask them if they see anything on the horizon except more crippling regulation, taxation or punitive regulatory dictat from both the Federal Government and that runaway bunch of Marxist radicals infesting Sacramento.

There are pockets of chronic unemployment in some of those communities as high as 30% or 40%, with an average of a whopping 25%. A figure I found difficult to swallow until I heard them re-stated by some people in the valleys and by one of the few conservative lawmakers in California, Devin Nunes. I wish he was my representative. This guy is the real deal.

Parisian Rag-Pickers, by Raffaelli.

These people just don’t dry up and blow away… they don’t all end up on the welfare roles. What happens after the unemployment runs out? What happens to those who are not considered by an obviously out-of-control governance, more concerned with its own perpetuation than in the well being of its citizens?

They become the shadow society. Though they no longer show on the various statistics as actual people because they are assumed to have ceased looking for work when they run through all of the available unemployment payment extensions. They are out there. Okay, some of them will eventually find their way onto the welfare roles in one respect or another.

There are an unbelievable forty five million people on food stamps in America, undoubtedly our shadow people are among them. How many are there? 10-30 million? There are fourteen million people without jobs today. Those are just the ones we know about. Some few are the chronic homeless, a small group which would be about the same in an average economy, those addicted to alcohol or drugs or having mental illnesses who refuse treatment. Still an incredibly small number as measured against the whole.

The Shadow People have turned to a cash underground, barter, gleaner sort of life. You can see these people all over our city, by no means a great urban center, on the streets, avenues, alleys and lanes… searching for metal, cans, bottles and plastic that can be sold to recycling centers to provide a little cash. It brings to mind the rag-pickers and gleaners of 18th century England and France, when grinding poverty was the norm.

This is Barack Obama’s America. Is this what you want for yourselves and your families?
Think about it.

Cicero: A Nation Can Survive Its Fools…

September 25, 2011

…and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly.
But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the galleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and wears their face and their garment, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.
He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.

Marcus Tullius Cicero, 106BC - 43BC.

We, in all our arrogant sophistication, have utterly failed to grasp what this ‘primitive’ philosopher knew forty two years before the birth of Christ.

The critical situation in which America now finds itself is a gut check of monumental proportions. There can be little doubt in any rational person’s mind that there are forces at work in this country which, left unchecked, will certainly extinguish the greatest beacon of democracy in the history of the world, resulting in the enslavement of free people’s souls. We’ve been served a constant diet of lies and prevarication for close to a century.

It’s the Goebbels syndrome on a grand scale. Tell the big lie long enough and often enough, and it takes on a life of its own. The ideologically driven radicals that have completely suborned and taken over what was the Democrat party in this country have taken agitation propaganda to heights unseen outside of Nazi Germany or possibly Stalinist Russia. Dissension, class envy, racial conflict and violence are their stock in trade. Grinding poverty and enslavement of free peoples is their goal.

The results of the careful groundwork that had been laid down in this country have their roots in the rise of international communism.

More recently, they can be found in Franklin Roosevelt’s ‘new deal‘. Exploration of the history of that period (the history not taught in most schools) was one of a massive shift of power to the federal government and toward socialism. Roosevelt felt that with the Supreme Court stuffed with his appointees and the promise of a ‘free guaranteed’ retirement, and the promise of unemployment ‘insurance’, the Democrat party would retain power.

In terms of ending the great depression, as we now know, the New Deal’s policies were a complete failure… ‘Social Security’, a Ponzi scheme of monumental proportions. The highest court in the land turned from interpretation of the law with respect to the Constitution to judicial activism, which continues to eat away the fundamental pillars of our society to this day.

Generations of dishonest, self-serving politicians, with no other motive than the acquisition of personal wealth and power, infest our halls of government… and not just at the national level either.

We have no one to blame but ourselves. We were the ones who listened to the statist siren song of “The Easier, Softer Way”. We completely ignored the lessons of history and now we are relearning them the hard way.

It’s up to each one of you, you and I, to judge for ourselves whether or not what we have experienced since the ‘immaculation’ (thanks, Rush) of Barack Hussein Obama constitutes the treason that Cicero spoke of. For myself, I say ‘yes‘!

The rise of the American Patriot Movement is a direct response to this threat. It’s readily apparent, even among the ranks of supposed ‘conservatives’, that they have no clue of what they are actually dealing with, or they wouldn’t continue to bleat out the bland inanities that they do.

What we are witnessing is nothing more nor less than the second American Revolution, as unique in its bloodless non-violence as America herself.
Memo to America’s enemies: We’re on the march and we’re coming for you!

More Razzle Dazzle From The Clown-In-Chief.

September 21, 2011

It would seem that the country has seen and heard every single falsehood that Obama and the DeMarxists have foisted on the American people. If there was ever an address that underwhelmed the public purview of Barack Hussein’s pitch for ‘balance’ and more taxes against the ‘rich’, this was it.

The top 10% of earners pay 70% of the taxes in this country to start with. If you confiscated every dime of the wealthiest people in this nation it would scarcely run the Federal Government for more than about ninety days. I’ve never gotten a job from a poor person. So, then, it stands to reason that Obama is determined to to forever destroy the job creators in our country.

Never in my lifetime, and very possibly in the history of this country, have we seen someone who is so wrong in so many different ways. If Mr Hussein was a private citizen it wouldn’t make a hoot or holler of difference. We all know incorrigible knotheads… people for whom abject ignorance is a virtue. But they’re not the President of the United States.

There’s a lead picture on ‘Drudge’, showing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Barry Obama at a meeting earlier today. Pull it up and check it out for yourselves. Obama looks like a man at the end of his rope. He’s presiding over a completely failed and ineffectual foreign policy with the sole purpose, as far as I can determine, of isolating the State of Israel, and doing everything in his power to advance the aims of the people who would see Israel in flames.

Consider his constant appeasement of Iran, probably the single greatest threat to Israel and to our own national security. There is no explanation for Obama’s apparent indifference to Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons and long-range delivery systems. No explanation, that is, unless you consider all of Obama’s overtures to the Arab world.

From literally prostrating himself in front of every two-bit, third world thug to overseeing the infiltration of the highest levels of our own government with Muslims proven to have direct connections to terrorist Islamic organizations. In blunt language, it reeks of treason.

I subscribe to Mark Levin’s take on our Mr. Obama. He’s a failed president on every level… but a very competent, inflexible ideologue which makes the whole picture far more sinister.

Why the Repubics have been loath to take this man on every time he opens his lying mouth, which is every time he opens his mouth, is beyond me… which is, of course, why many of our unesteemed RINO moderates will no longer be with us this next election cycle.

The question that keeps lingering in the back of my mind is that we know that Hussein is a dedicated Marxist. We also know that his Islamic background would give fits to any competent security operative. So while Obama plays the race card, followed by the class warfare card, followed by the immigration card ad infinitum, and blatantly follows failed policy by failed policy… the world watches and waits.

Iran marches closer and closer towards the ‘Islamic Bomb’ and the inevitable destruction of our only true ally in that entire part of the world. In essence, with Obama fiddling while Rome burns, Israel is being forced into a very short list of options.

Israel will attack Iran rather than allow them the bomb, regardless of what Hillary, Barack or Washington says. They will have to go it alone, since the treacherous Obama has refused the Israeli Air Force landing or fly-over support for her tankers. This would almost certainly mean a one-way suicide mission for some of the finest combat pilots in the world.

If Israel was put in this position I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if they make damn sure that Iran and Syria would be turned into slag heaps. Without Iranian support, most of the terrorist states would dry up and blow away.
Obama has so much to answer for.

To Market, To Market, To Buy A Fat Pig.

September 18, 2011

Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door. This has been the clarion call of marketplaces around the world since the beginning.

During the late Neolithic and early Bronze Ages, a culture sprang up through most of Europe called the Bell-Beaker culture. Extensive trade based on people’s desires, wants and needs crossed inter-tribal and cultural lines. Known for their distinctive bell-shaped pottery it was probably the world’s first example of an idea or product going viral. Used for everything from drinking vessels for beer or mead (a sort of wine made from fermented honey and water) to smelting vessels for bronze, copper and gold, and funerary urns.

The obvious point being, before I get too far afield with this, is that there was a marketplace for these goods and services that crossed cultural and ethnic lines. Trade for goods and services was established wherever the need arose apart from, or perhaps in spite of, tribal warfare and conflict.

Examples are many, flint nodules found hundreds of miles from any source, finished products such as arrowheads, hand-axes, flensing tools and baskets. There are many examples of that here on the west coast of America. There was extensive trade among the Native American culture here on the west coast of the United States.

So… inventing the better mousetrap is then only a part of the success story. You have to have: (a) a mouse trap that works and (b) someone who has the wants, needs or desire to possess that better mousetrap. These have been the bases for business and trade for thousands of years.
We no longer trade for hides, flint knapping tools or arrowheads, but the principles of trade have not changed. You have to have a market.

We have today in America a situation where the ‘governing elite’ have supplanted the marketplace with ideological tyranny. Governmental assault on all fronts against the people who supply the goods and services that people want. Using the ever-ephemeral mantra of ‘sustainable’ this and ‘sustainable’ that, they have completely reversed the formula. Using the communist-inspired so-called ‘Green Revolution’, they have created whole industries based on a liberal amount of junk science.

That there is no want, desire or need for these industries hasn’t seemed to matter. It’s like taking a square block and trying to drive it through a round hole. The best you can expect is a handful of splinters. So if the block doesn’t fit, destroy the the hole… an obvious reference to the Barack Hussein Obama regime’s assault on America’s energy sector.

Solar and wind powered energy technologies will never represent anything other than a fraction of our energy requirements, yet the boneheads of the Obama regime continue the lemming-like rush to the precipice of economic destruction.

Solyndra, Evergreen Solar, Spectra Watt and Mountain Plaza are the most recent examples. All were feeding at the government trough, your dollars and mine flushed down the stinking sewer of ideologically driven political expediency.
This regime has much to answer for.

The Potemkin President.

September 16, 2011

This president and his rise to power will be chewed over and spat out by generations of writers… left, right and in the mushy middle. Historians will not treat Barack Obama kindly. Nothing with this ‘man’ (as much as it slays me to refer to him as such… in the company of real men he wouldn’t be given the time of day) is as it seems. He is as illusory as the will-o’-the-wisp over a southern swamp. He could put any carny barker to shame with his meaningless, high-flown rhetoric.

As a side note, Dee and I just celebrated our 600th publication last week. It’s the first time I’ve given more than a cursory examination to our archives. I don’t claim to be prescient, however, going clear back to the beginning of this column it’s really spooky how accurately I described Barack Hussein Obama and his political agenda. I pegged him as a Marxist ideologue from day one. But then, I didn’t allow the hype to sway me. At best, as I said at the time, we should reserve judgment, since at that time he was still selling himself as a moderate to the boobs.

The Potemkin was a Russian battleship built in 1898, glorified in Bolshevik and, later, communist literature in Stalinist Russia as the exemplar of revolutionary zeal, when the Potemkin’s crew revolted against their Tsarist officers in 1905. Later, the name Potemkin was pinned to idyllic, rural Russian villages which were set up for the sole purpose of bamboozling moon-faced liberals into believing the ‘glories’ of communism and the various ‘five year plans’ that failed so miserably. Typically, after the boobs left, the ‘villagers’ were stripped of their bucolic finery and sent back out into the collective farms where life was generally far worse than under the Tsars. Millions of people died at the hands of this cruel and heartless regime.

Barack Obama has created a Potemkin economy, where nothing is as it is portrayed by the fifth columnists of his statist mainstream media. While moving to the left as quickly as he can, his slavish apologists run interference for him at every turn. The Obama regime is in its death throes… but like any venomous serpent thrashing its life away, none the less dangerous for it.

Americans are fully awake and are preparing to remove Mr Hussein in 2012. Nothing could be more indicative of what’s coming down the pike than the victory of Republican Bob Turner over his liberal opponent in New York’s District Nine, Anthony Wiener’s former district, in the east coast’s ‘belly of the beast’. It wasn’t even close. Couple that to the apparent loss of much of the Jewish vote and it’s a harbinger of things to come.

Don’t let up on the pressure for an instant. It’s going to be the American Patriot Movement which is going to sweep these Marxists from power forever, and it can’t come one second too soon.

One More Unmemorable Speech.

September 10, 2011

I was astounded. I didn’t think he’d really do it… well, yes I did, but I didn’t think it would be as blatant as it was. I’m referring to Barack Hussein Obama’s national address before the joint chambers of Congress, of course. It should have been billed as what it was, a campaign speech, and not a very good one at that.

It was vintage Obama. It was 2009 all over again. It was virtually identical to every other speech he has given since his election. Let’s just say that the speech itself had nothing new. It did run the entire gamut of the ever-present leftist shopping list.

Mr Obama wants another half trillion in ‘stimulus’ dollars to grease his campaign coffers and appease the unions. He’s planning on enlisting ‘the unemployed’, along with his AFL/CIO and SEIU goons, in their ‘war’ against the Tea Party.

Um, that would be their war on American citizens. We’ve seen all of the government’s tactics, time and time again. First, gin up unreasoning fear, then inject all of the DeMarxist straw ponies into the mix… use all of the oft-repeated talking points, the blatant lies which have served the left so well in the past. Scare the bejesus out of the elderly and the infirm. Ratchet up government giveaways. More shovel ready jobs that don’t and won’t exist outside of union and government welfare programs. Barack Obama’s ‘American Jobs Act’ is a fraud, through and through.

Why anyone would still think that this man was some sort of great orator is beyond comprehension. As I predicted, the ‘Anointed One’ spouted lie after falsehood after complete fabrication. The left, ever ready to prop up their historical experiment, wasted no time in covering a major gaffe in Obama’s boring and repetitive rant when he said in his speech that Abraham Lincoln had started the Republican Party, when in fact it had been started several years before. Enter that paragon of leftist diatribe, PBS, who actually changed the text of the speech to haul Hussein’s ashes.

The left is becoming more and more desperate, which means that you and I, and the millions and millions of patriots just like us all over this nation, have the sacred responsibility to see that Barack Hussein Obama’s tenure is short.

MSM Creates Narrative – Strives To Shape Outcome.

September 6, 2011

The ‘Main Stream Media’, as it has come to be known, has ceased to exist. It wasn’t even given a decent burial. The advent of the new conservative media has thrown down the gauntlet. Despite near-hysterical attempts to sell America the Administration’s statist line, Americans have not been fooled.

The new media has forced a transparency on their MSM counterparts that they’ve never had to face before. They were like a moth circling closer and closer to the flame. In the MSM’s drive to be closer and closer to the seats of power in this country they sold out their independence, their integrity and, as we’ve observed, some have sold out far more than that.

It’s sad, really. American journalism had a great tradition and a worldwide reputation as seekers of truth, no matter where that truth took them. I’ve been calling the Main Stream Media the Lame Stream Media now for a couple of years, but in fact I’ve watched the decline of truth and objectivity in journalism since Dan Rather and Walter Cronkite sold us out on the war in Vietnam, with politically motivated lies and distortions that were unfortunately taken for gospel truth by the folks at home, and most especially by craven politicians on both sides of the aisle.

The very instant any journalist or writer sells out for political advantage or favor, he or she ceases to have any claim on objectivity. The very moment that they lie to protect that privilege, they become the creature of that political entity with vested interest in the furtherance of their benefactor’s aims and desires. It’s actually far worse than that.

The LSM has degenerated to the point where no one, other than the usual 20% of the population that identify themselves as liberals or progressives, even wants to hear or read them any longer. They’re getting really desperate when they have to put someone like Al Sharpton up there, who is barely coherent at the best of times. It does accurately portray the mindset of these people that they would put the country’s  #2 race-baiter  in to a prime time slot.

The LSM, not content with carrying the water for the statists of the Obama administration and their minions, are manufacturing the news. Not that the LSM could manufacture a hurricane, but the progressive ginning up of the story had them directing the narrative and projecting the outcomes as well. We cannot fault city, county and state governments for acting with an excess of caution. We can, and will, fault the LSM for distorting the narrative and, as usual, outright invention.

It’s no wonder the new media has exploded. It’s no wonder the Patriot Movement is continuing to grow at record rates. For our part, we will continue to expose these lying statist cretins at every opportunity.

March To Waterloo.

September 5, 2011

In any rational political environment, Barack Hussein Obama would be toast. Notice, please, the use of the word ‘rational’.

The left has been on a collision course with all things American since the 1903 Bolshevik revolution, led by Leon Trotsky and Vladimir Lenin, whose political-economic theories formed the basis of what was to become the Communist Party in Russia and the launch of the international Communist Party and its avowed aim of extending its tyrannical and repressive philosophy throughout the globe.

Trotsky and Lenin were political and economic theorists. That their collective ideology caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Russian citizens seems not to have caused them a moment’s pause. Lawlessness, fear and hysteria, generated by ideological zealotry and an inflexible and indiscriminate one-party political authoritarianism, led to poverty and repression that rivaled and exceeded the worst the Tsars could have ever conceived. The people of Russia simply traded one inflexible authoritarian rule for another.

That this pernicious political ideology would clash with the enlightened western democracies was never in doubt. Political and economic subversion were always the preferred method of attack.

America was never fertile ground for the expansion of communism. Given a choice, people invariably choose freedom. Hence, the left has been relegated to using lies, distortion, outright invention and the subversion of the moral fabric of the country.

Barack Hussein Obama is a communist ideologue. He has been inculcated with radical Marxian philosophy from the time he was a child. First by his mother, an avowed Marxist herself, and then later by the radical Hawaiian communist Frank Marshall Davis.

All of the people around Obama are academics. Theoretical socialists, not one of whom has ever held a real job in the real world, are the brain trust for all of Obama’s policies. We’ve had the better part of three years to judge Obama and his regime.

Barack Obama has been soundly repudiated by the American people. He and his radical policies, and his radical minions, are in the spotlight… and they don’t like it one bit. They are exposed for what they are.

The latest evidence that Obama is yielding to the immense pressure being exerted by the American people, with the Tea Party in the lead, is that Obama has backed off of the EPA’s latest carbon outrage, which Republican economists estimate would have cost hundreds of thousands of new job losses and the destruction of entire industries. He has been out-maneuvered and stymied at virtually every turn since the left lost the House of Representatives.

Obama’s march to his Waterloo continues… and we of the American Patriot Movement are here to smooth his way.

It Really Is All About Business.

September 2, 2011

This week we were shy of a couple of key technicians where I work. “So what?”, you say… “we all have to work short handed once in a while”. True, and no argument there. What is different, or more likely in Barack Obama’s America, what has sadly become the norm for many businesses is that we are all operating with reduced staff and management. This, in turn, makes the absence of key personnel felt much more in most organizations.

I just went through a week exactly like this one, hence no articles this week. No excuses, work is work and we’re damned grateful for it. The end results of the various cuts, layoffs, consolidations and downsizing has turned American business into a sort of survivors’ club.

We have been forced to fine tune our operations and hone our procedures to razor sharpness by the maelstrom of a decimated economy and the overbearing hand of a blatantly business-unfriendly statist regime, whose only accomplishment to date seems to be the ability to vomit forth copious volumes of repressive and regressive regulations and onerous enforcement burdens on an already overtaxed and vastly over-regulated private business community.

We have, without a single doubt, the greatest workforce on Earth. Don’t buy the bull bleep that America has seen its better days… get out of our way! That’s all… that’s all it would take to end this depression. Yeah, folks… zero job growth, in a now-continuous four year economic train wreck that is the Barack Hussein Obama government and its disastrous policies, qualifies as a depression.

We don’t see the stereotypical long soup lines of unemployed men as in the 1929 collapse and the resultant depression. We’ve had soup lines for many years inside the inner cities, the welfare state has seen to that. There is a minor industry that has grown up around ‘non profits’ that cater to homeless clients, distributing resources and helping to administer social services for homeless and impaired or addicted clients.

These agencies receive both private and public funds. So, we’re paying for keeping the homeless on the streets. Cute, huh? I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t witnessed it myself when doing emergency work at such a facility, and as such had access to a normally locked meeting room with a large white board showing all their funding sources.

There was no ‘safety net’ in 1929. No food stamps, no welfare checks, no public or ‘section eight’ housing. That may be why so many people are still bamboozled into thinking that the recession somehow died and that zero GDP growth is somehow acceptable.

There is no way that Obama, or any of his ilk, is going to sell anyone on any idea that this economy is not his alone. His excuses have all been heard and ofttimes repeated. Now he’s tried to upstage the Republican presidential debates and gotten his hand caught in the cookie jar by John Boehner, who despite all his warts as Speaker, showed a flash of brilliance in turning the ‘trap’ laid by Obama’s jolly jokesters around and depositing it where the Sun don’t go. It simply made Obama look like what he is… the spoiled petulant man-child.

If we want the economy to grow, if we want to see jobs, if we believe in the greatness of the American people… this man must be a one-term president.
