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!

The Man Behind The Mirror – Smoke Gets In Your Eyes.

February 25, 2010

Joseph Goebbels had a standard mantra which is attributed to him, in spirit if not in fact. “Tell a big enough lie frequently enough and it will be believed”. Actually Lenin, William James (considered to be father of modern psychology), and Adolf Hitler all had variations on the theme. It’s a current that runs through socialist history. In fact, socialism cannot function in the light of truth because its methodology is that of fear, intimidation and impending real and manufactured calamity.

Barack Obama is telling us ‘I am not now, nor have I ever been, a socialist’ and as a matter of fact I’m an arch capitalist and have ever been a champion of business and commerce. That’s like saying, ‘hey, look over there, that’s not a giraffe it’s an eighteen foot lion’.

Later today, Obama will put on his best socio-pathological face and demand that Republicans accede to his imperial will, while the House Madame prepares to threaten, cajole and break the kneecaps of recalcitrant House members. Republicans, far from heeding the imperial decree, will draw the proverbial line in the sand at the direction of the American people. With the imperial throne tottering and the public’s actual evaluation of Congress at an all time historical low of 90 percent disapproving, a bare 10% of the people are of the opinion that Congress has been doing its job.

The only option left to Barack Hussein will be to call for his party to commit political seppuku and call for passage of this heinous assault on our freedom by reconciliation. Everyone, especially the statists and their slavishly devoted lapdogs in the leftist press, has forgotten what Barack Obama and the Democrats said in 2005 when Republicans were threatening to use the reconciliation process to stymie the Democrats filibustering President Bush’s Judicial appointments. “Nuclear option is an arrogant power grab against the founders intent”, they howled as one Democrat after another paraded in front of the cameras. Joe Biden said, “I pray God when the Democrats take back control we don’t make the kind of naked power grab you are doing”.

Let’s see, Judicial appointments versus a Socialist takeover of our economy. Anybody see a disconnect here? For all Obama’s blather about jobs and a recovering economy, what’s coming down the road gives the big lie to all of his claims. A whole new wave of foreclosures is here and RealtyTrac is grimly forecasting that as many as four million homes will receive a foreclosure notice this year. Large-scale layoffs of fifty or more employees for as many as two thousand companies are scheduled for this year as well. Next month, the employment forecast summary is expected to be grim news.
So, President Obama, what other good news do you have for us?
