When are the communists in Washington going to remove their heads from the dark and damp recesses of their crevasses and start smelling something other than their own crap? I would love to have a few minutes with the bureaucrats up there to attempt to screw their heads back on correctly! But that, of course, is never going to happen.
In all truthfulness, the terrorists have won. They have won by forcing the United States government to cower in fear while suspecting everyone. Thanks to CAIR and the liberal poo-paws, we don't dare to profile! What you are seeing at the airports is exactly what is going to happen to the rest of the United States as these evil progressives continue to pass more draconian laws. Our liberty will continue to erode in the "interest" of everyone's "well-being." We'll have nothing to worry about, Big Brother will take care of everything. Right. You want me to buy what bridge?
I, for one, will never again set foot on a passenger jet. Is it out of fear? Not at all. It's simply because I absolutely refuse to release one bit of my personal freedom. I won't put myself at the mercy of some government goon just so I can take a trip.
We seriously need to hog-tie the communists in office. Then once that is done, bring out the tar and feathers and run them out of town!
Is anyone else angered by this? Are we now just passive citizens waiting for more of our liberties to be taken away? Al-Qaeda is laughing themselves silly out of their nightgowns at how they so easily hamstrung America. They don't care about lives, and the mere fact that one person was sacrificed (it doesn't matter if he dies or spends life in jail) to bring down our transportation must seem like a laughing matter to them. They put up roadside bombs in the war zone next to civilians and mock us as we refuse to shoot for fear that we might hurt an "innocent" bystander. They snicker at us as they strike with impunity, knowing we won't really hit back. They listen to the dictator in the White House make all sorts of excuses for Islam and bow down to their leaders while at the same time removing freedom from his own citizens! Their sides must be hurting from laughter when they think on how the Dept. of Homeland Security (talk about an oxymoron!) labels conservatives as terrorists while refusing to profile the most common offenders!
Are we in a war or are we just playing games? What is happening over in the Middle East is exactly what happened in Vietnam! We have government bureaucrats telling our military leaders what they can and cannot attack! They've put our men and women in danger by their idiotic rules of engagement, and have at the same time encouraged our enemy! Isn't aiding and abetting an enemy also known as treason?
War is horrible. War is nasty. But war must be fought in a manner which reminds our enemies that we will strike back to protect our freedoms! If a few citizens get in the way, sorry, but they're at fault for allowing their countrymen to continue their barbarism! In WW2, we bombed the blazes out of Germany. Then we nuked Japan, not once, but twice! 65 years later, those two nations are our allies. That's right, allies. We showed them that we would not hesitate to use what ever force was necessary to win. We need to do the same in the Middle East.
But no. What we have in power now are a bunch of pansies that continue to remove the rights of their citizens while doing their best to protect the enemy camp. They say that a few deranged people have hijacked a "peaceful" religion. I would have loved to hear them say that about Nazism in 1939! "Hitler is just hijacking a peaceful political ideology." Bull! Our enemies are not only abroad, but there are right here at home occupying the most powerful positions in the nation! They are traitors, backstabbers, liars, dictators - men and women of the utmost darkness, an evil so vile and filthy that it could have only come from Satan himself!

The "upstanding" Senator forgot to mention these few points:
- In both the House and Senate, Democrats pressured their party members to vote for the health care bill.
- In both the House and Senate, late night votes were held to catch the public unaware.
- Reid bribed numerous Democrat Senators to get their votes.
- The Republicans did indeed offer alternatives, but since they were not to the liking of the Democrats, those alternatives were rejected.
- The Republicans were following the majority of Americans (54-80% depending on what poll) who did not want this health care bill.
- The Democrats have acknowledge this, but state that once the bill is in place, Americans will change their minds - no matter that taxation starts immediately but no "benefits" will be seen for four years.

Now there is "shocking news" that this Muslim showed "no signs" of being a radical. He was simply "a devout Muslim." Instead, he was a member of a very wealthy family, and always "quiet." People are saying that he is a rarity, and one of the few "wealthy" Muslims to embrace al-Qa'ida. Um, hello? Does anyone remember Osama and the Bin Ladens? Wealthy Family? The only reason very "few" financially well to do Muslims embrace "jihad" is that there are very few who are wealthy. And those who are, very rarely share their wealth with others (unless those "others" are terrorist organizations).
Regardless, the whole point is that those who commit these terrorist acts are devout Muslims! Anyone who wants to get serious about Islam will soon realize that it isn't a supposed "religion of peace," but a political and cultural system designed completely around world domination. Jihad Watch, thereligionofpeace.com, myself (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here), as well as numerous others have demonstrated that truth! How long are we going to allow PC to continue to spread lies about this atrocity of a "religion?" It's a known fact that each year more people are killed due to the "religion of peace" then the entire Spanish Inquisition. Each month more people are murdered by Islamists then those who were murdered during the entire history of the KKK! Yet Islam is continually placated and labeled as "the religion of peace."
No, Islam is not such a religion, and it's devout followers are far from peaceful. Are all Muslims terrorists? No, but each and every Muslim terrorist (and there have been thousands) are devout Islamists. When a person is willing to take their head out of the sand to see the truth, this is a conclusion that is quite easy to obtain. Remember, Islam means "submission." How much longer, oh world, are you going to continue submitting?

Today, Drudge posted an article from Politico which states:
Republicans are stepping up their efforts to persuade more House Democrats to switch parties and are zeroing in on a second-term Pennsylvanian who acknowledged the efforts but said he has "no plans" to do so.
The Democrat in question is Chris Carney. He's a second term House Democrat from Pennsylvania's 10th District. Carney, who voted in favor of Pelosi's H.R. 3962, has a track record of voting 92% of the time along Democrat party lines. He has only abstained his vote 6% of the time.
One of his sponsored bills is H.R. 3955 which has as it's written purpose:
To amend the Public Health Service Act to authorize grants to 10 States for demonstration projects for the expansion of State registries on childhood immunization or health to include data on body mass index (BMI), collected and submitted to the State by health care providers.
Basically, he's proposing that we give more public tax dollars to 10 states so that they can see how fat kids are - using the BMI procedure which has been proven to be unscientific. That's a nice way to spend what will probably be millions of dollars. The bill has been introduced, but not yet voted on.
He co-sponsored H.R. 3977 which is a bill that seeks to impose on private companies a limit on how much they can charge customers based on their credit scores.
He co-sponsored H.Res.863 which calls on the U.S. to recognize the "scourge of pneumonia"... what scourge?
He co-sponsored H.Res.864 which congratulates Obama for winning the Nobel Peace Prize.
I can go on and on about this man. Suffice it to say, the links provided will give you a deluge of information in regards to his political stance, bills he's introduced or co-sponsored, as well as his voting track record. One thing is certain, Chris Carney is an obvious socialist. Yet the Republican party wants him and others if his ilk among their ranks.
As I asked Wednesday, I'll ask again: Do we really want to vote into power a political party which obviously does not hold to the same principles of mainstream conservative America? We as Americans who are tired of big government and it's leap towards absolute socialism must firmly say "no" to those who are currently in power. We must no longer vote for the "lesser of two evils." If the Republican party continues along this course of courting socialists for their ranks as well as it's acceptance of big government, we must halt all financial and political support.
The time to say "no" is long past; the time to act is now. America, 2010 is your last chance to stand up and proclaim "no more" to those in power! It's our last chance to save the Union from the evils of those who wish to force us into a one world government which proposes free handouts to one and all.
I vote no on the Republican party as it currently stands.

That begs the question, what is a revolution? Simply put, it's citizens saying "no" in the most forceful manner possible. Our country was founded on that "no" when the colonies stood up to the crown, said "down with taxation without representation," and then backed it up with an armed conflict. That conflict forceably threw off the chains of bondage and a new nation was born.
To be blunt, I'm getting pretty fed up with columnists, politicians, and news medias leaping onto the "bandwagon" only to hijack it for their own purposes. Don't get me wrong, for the most part I think WND is a great news organization. However, they certainty do have their biases (as all news organizations do), and they push that bias down the throats of their readers.
Does America need a second revolution? Well, I guess the answer to that depends on whom you're discussing it with. Certainty, the Democrats need to be thrown out on their rears. They have done more damage to this country in less then a year then all others in previous American history combined. Yet are the Republicans the answer? They have shown through their actions that they are not opposed to big government. And when they are in power, they're too timid to answer the challenges the Democrats throw at them. The Republicans are so concerned with "co-existing" with the Democrats that they end up compromising. That cowardly policy ultimately harms the nation even more.
WND, along with other entrenched conservative columnists, is pleading with it's readers to not adopt a third party. They say that if we do so, then the conservative vote will be watered down and the socialists will remain in power. Well I, for one, am sick and tired of having to choose between the "lesser of two evils." That's what happened to the 2008 elections. The conservatives were sickened by the fact that they had to choose between Obama or McCain. Many of us simply refused to vote. Most of us will not allow ourselves to be forced into such a situation again.
For example, take the recent race in New York where even though victory was stolen by common liberal practices in vote counting, Doug Hoffman (of the Conservative Party) almost won. Think folks, this is ultra liberal New York! As well, during this race, the Republican party once more revealed it's true colors as former House Speaker Newt Gingrich"talked up" Dierdre Scozzafava. This is the same Dierdre who, after dropping from the race, went on to endorse her Democrat opponent over Hoffman.
The Republicans of today are finally jumping on the "band wagon" and are pretending to be the guardians of the conservative movement. Unfortunately, they're "Johnny Come Lately's" as they stood back to watch what would happen with the Tea Party movement. When it became obvious that this wasn't simply a passing fad, then they "engaged." While I'm thankful that they are currently opposing the socialist grab for power by Congress and the Executive branch, believe me, they aren't doing it out of any entrenched moral outrage. They're simply trying to hijack Conservative outrage to serve their own political careers. Heed my words - once they are the majority again in Congress, they'll go back to their old ways of being weak spined as well as in favor of large government. I'm tired of this, aren't you?
Today on the streets and corners of Hometown USA, anger is prevalent. The two philosophies of conservationism and socialism are in open warfare. Their corresponding supporters are animated in this fight, and tensions are running high. It will only take a spark to ignite the blaze that is waiting to spread. The long quiet conservatives have finally grown a spine and are fighting back. The socialists, used to years of passive resistance, have finally worked through their shock and are turning to all the dirty tactics they know. They're even inventing new ones. Unlike times of old, this is not cowing the conservative base of America. Instead, this is only energizing them.
No, even if the Democrats are thrown out on their rears in 2010 and 2012, that will not be a revolution. A revolution will be occurring when American citizens stand up in open defiance of their government to say, "no more!" That open defiance will be backed up by arms and warfare will spread. That we are headed towards a revolution, of this I am sure. The real question is: How it will end?
Dec 22, 2009
The Democrat takeover of our personal freedoms have hit home. Perhaps if I give some personal background, the reasoning for my feelings will be made clear.
On October 31th, 2007 I was rear ended in an auto accident. December 12th of 2007, roughly six weeks later, I was rear ended once more as I was at the post office dropping off paperwork for the first accident. Due to the injuries sustained in these accidents, as well as other issues, I have been on Social Security Disability since March of this year (2009). For a hard core Conservative, this has been a difficult pill to swallow. I absolutely loath the welfare system as is. I have seen too many people abuse it and continue to live off of it. Yet that is not my case. This is why I am returning to college next semester to pursue a diploma in English. I refuse to be yet another leech on society.
Formerly an IT professional, I have found myself extremely limited in what my body will allow me to accomplish. Gone are the days where I can stand on my feet for more then a handful of minutes at a time. Stooping and lifting are out of the question. What I am still able to do is write.
This past year while on disability, I have not had medical insurance. In fact, I will not have medicare until the 1st of next month. However, I refuse to use it. When I paid for my classes, I bought campus insurance, and that is what I'll be using for my medical care. That being said, I feel that I am quite qualified to discuss the "health care" reform in it's current congressional draft (soon to be law). I am very much opposed to it. Regardless of my injuries, I am loath to have myself placed under any more government control, and I know what it will do to the nation. I strongly oppose abortion, large government, and socialism in all it's forms. I feel that I am using disability as it was intended, to help me get back on to my feet so that I may once more become a contributing member to society.
Yet that is not what the socialists in power want. They need us to be completely reliant upon them. When they have Americans dependent upon them, their power grows exponentially. As their power grows, our freedoms are taken away. I would rather spend the rest of my life in disabling pain then to support any move by our government to remove more of our freedoms. This is why I have been so upset about the very recent government grab for power. I am personally living in a situation where I have no health insurance and am in constant pain. Yet I recognize everyone's rights to liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I am very frightened by what we are witnessing as a nation, and I am disturbed by what seems to me, at times, to be a less then 100% willingness of Americans to fight this.
My name is posted all over the internet, and anyone doing a cursory search may find me. What they will find is my outspoken opposition to the Obama administration. There may even be a time in the future where I could be removed from my disability status before I'm able to enter the workforce simply because of the positions I have taken. Yet out of love for my country and my fellow Americans, I am putting all of this on the line.
So when I read the news and, to my disdain, discover more betrayal by our elected representatives, when I discover life-term judges creating laws (unconstitutional), when I see our God given rights as American citizens being flushed down the toilet, I become angry. When I talk to the average American who is unwilling to learn about our Constitution and the founding of this nation, when I hear people tell me that they have given up and that they feel there is no hope, I in turn become quite frustrated. When I hear of politicians compromising my liberties, I seethe deep inside. When I am placing everything I have on the line, and see other Americans unwilling to do the same, in disgust, I wonder why?
I'm far from perfect. As everyone else, I have my faults. I have a powerful temper and a strong loathing for what is being done to this nation. Unfortunately, sometimes that bursts out in my writings. I do ask that you forgive those occasional outbursts and I promise to try to keep a strong reign on my emotions.
I won't give up on this country - this beautiful nation that was blessed by God. I won't turn my back on the Founding Fathers, nor on the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our liberties. I ask those of you who are currently engaged in this war to continue to stand with me. To those of you who have yet to enter battle, I plead with you to take up freedom's banner with me.
May God guide those of us who truly love His given freedom, and may we trust that His providence will lead us to victory.

Under this health care bill, you will be paying $1 a month for abortion coverage, regardless if you want to or not. You are forced to pay for abortions. Also, the previously promised "morality clause" that would have allowed insurance companies to opt out of providing coverage for abortion was not included.
Now we have more insults coming from the Democrats. Sheldon Whitehouse (sounds appropriate right now, don't you think?), a Senator from Rhode Island, stated:
The birthers, the fanatics, the people running around in right-wing militia and Aryan support groups, it is unbearable to them that President Barack Obama should exist.
Hear that folks? If you oppose this, you're a fanatic. You are a part of a militia as well as Aryan support groups. since we're racist and can't stand the very fact that BO exists, that's why we oppose this horrendous administration.
Well if that's the case, the majority of America fits into that category, even blacks and other minorities!
Does anyone else feel tempted to search out some militias and join up?

Ben Nelson is now ultimately responsible for the upcoming murders of millions of unborn babies as his single vote could have prevented this travesty. Was the pay-off worth all of that, senator?
This isn't going to be much of an entry, but for those of you who have not yet heard, the last Senate Democrat holdout has been bought off by securing favors for his state. Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska has stated that he will vote in favor of the "health bill". And yes, there is still an abortion premium - meaning, all of us get to pay for others to kill their unborn children. I really wish I wasn't right in predicting this, but
I have mentioned before, will repeat - it does not matter how much Americans protest this take over. The Democrat Socialists have shown their hubris over and over again by passing bills that they want, never mind that these are something that the people they supposedly represent, oppose.
So now the government controls an auto manufacturer, the banking industry, is in the process of taking over the transit industry, and controls your health care while at the same time forcing you to pay for the murders of children.
How do you like the "change" so far, America?

Each and every one of us has specific talents gifted to us by the Lord. Some of us are leaders, some of us are thinkers, others are financial wizards; the list of these gifts goes on and on. Every one of us has within them a deep love for this country. Are we willing to use our talents in this battle for freedom?
This year, I began to use this blog as a pulpit, so to speak, to preach to the masses the truth of our situation. I have attempted to encourage you to stand up and fight. I have attempted to tear down the veils that the enemies of this country, both foreign and domestic, have attempted to raise. I will not retreat from any battle.
In September, it was my duty to help organize and participate in a local Tea Party protest. I have posted articles to my local newspaper, have posted articles on other local sites, and have had numerous discussions with my neighbors concerning the plight of this country. I also had an article linked to from World Net Daily. I attended a campaign meeting of a local politician who is running for office, and unabashedly recorded my thoughts on it.
Two articles ago, I wrote as to why I feel this nation has gone the direction it’s now on. On Dig, two people gave that piece of writing heavy flack. In fact, I’ve received heavy flack for numerous articles and have been called everything from a racist and bigot, to a right wing extremist. So be it. Even so, I am only taking a fraction of the flack that the better known columnists are enduring.
On January 11th, I will be returning to college. My major will be in English, and I will be facing socialism head on in one of its strongholds. I will not back down. I will not surrender. I will take the resulting diploma and use it to constantly strive for victory in this ongoing battle for freedom.
There comes a time in every man’s life when he must decide upon his ultimate course. Will he strive for his own personal glory or will he sacrifice his dreams for the greater good of those around him?
Our Founding Fathers were diplomats, inventors, preachers, mill workers, brewers, farmers, plantation owners, shop owners and everything else in between. Those who led the Revolution not only sacrificed their fortunes and reputations, but offered up their lives so that America would be known as the Land of the Free. They were willing to give their all, and on the battle lines, many did.
If you are not willing to do the same, if you will stand on the sidelines while the enemy tears down our freedoms, indeed, if you prefer to sit quietly back while others take up this fight for you, then you are not worthy of the name, American. You might as well join forces with those who are the architects of this nation’s destruction. Your passive inactivity equates to their evil.
I have heard numerous excuses given by those who refuse to get involved; “I don’t know enough about politics to get involved,” “There is nothing I can do that will change anything,” “It’s too late,” “All politicians are crooks,” etc, etc.
- If you don’t know, learn!
- Doing nothing aids the enemy. Doing anything helps the cause!
- It’s only too late when we surrender!
- Professional politicians are the crooks, those who run for the love of country and freedom are patriots!
Become involved in your local political scene. If you don’t like a current politician, run against them! If you can’t run, find out who is! If they’re a true patriot, do everything you can to support them! Learn about the history of this country instead of spending countless hours in front of the television or computer! Then once you’ve learned, teach others! You don’t need a special diploma in “law” to be learned! The Constitution is only four pages long! Read the writings of our Founding Fathers! Pick up material on the founding of this county, and study! Don’t sit there and makes excuses!
If you follow blogs or websites that are fighting back, support them! Post comments, dig articles, let the writers know that they have your support, and they are not fighting this battle alone! While sending in donations does help, what good is money when the Cause lacks the manpower to effectively work? Volunteer your time. Start talking to your neighbors. Stop being men and women of fear, but bold patriots who love country more then self!
What will you do?
The Sun never shined on a cause of greater worth. ‘Tis not the affair of a City, a County, a Province, or a Kingdom; but of a Continent – of at least one eighth part of the habitable Globe. – Thomas Paine, Common Sense, January, 1776

CAN, led by Martin Mawyer, has researched Muslims of America for years and has provided its video to the FBI, State Department and Homeland Security.
To date, there has been no response from the government, the group said.
Mawyer told WND the political correctness America has adopted ultimately will be costly.
The hands of law enforcement and investigators are tied at this point, he said, because members of the organization are part of "a minority religion," "they are African-American" "and in this particular case, are women."
Yet while this is being allowed, an 8-year old boy was sent home from school for drawing Christ on the cross. What’s more, the student was suspended and had to undergo psychological counseling. Of course, now that the school was called on its actions, they’re backtracking fast. However, this does point out, once again, that Christianity is under strong attack.
Every year around this time, Christmas is under siege. Government officials and the majority of businesses will only refer to this time of year as the “holiday season.” Long standing monuments, such as the cross in the Mohave desert, are being challenged and most of the ACLU lawyers as winning their cases.
At the same time, pagan ideas such as “Santa Claus and his elves”, along with atheist advertisements, are bombarding our children. As has been a long standing trend, retailers have once more jumped on to the “holiday” bandwagon in search of the “almighty” dollar.
My fellow Christians, your faith is under heavy assault. And when your faith is being attacked, it’s ultimately our Lord who is placed under the microscope.
In 1962, prayer was removed from our classrooms. The following year, the bible was as well. Since then, this nation’s moral character has plummeted. The 60’s became the decade of free love where those involved used LSD and marijuana, culminating in 1969’s Woodstock Festival.
Then in 1973, Roe v. Wade was passed, legalization abortion (the murder of unborn children). Of course abortion was around before this, resulting from the eugenics movement which was conceived and initiated by Francis Galton (a cousin of Charles Darwin). Margaret Sanger was greatly influenced by eugenics and founded Planned Parenthood. She at one time stated, “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” Thus while abortion was being done clandestinely, it was the Roe v. Wade ruling that turned it mainstream. Since that time, millions of innocent children have been coldly murdered, ranging from being torn apart in the womb, to having the tops of their heads exposed from the birth canal where their brains are suctioned out. All of this in support of a woman’s “right to choose.”
In 1981, the first case of AIDS(Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) was reported – the victim being a gay man. Since then, and even though this virus is incurable, homosexual activists have been pushing for what they claim are “equal rights.” Yet in reality, they are pushing for not only their sinful “lifestyle” to be accepted, but to have our young children indoctrinated. California, Massachusetts, Vermont, and other states leaning hard to the left have pushed this indoctrination on to our youth, informing them that this behavior is “natural” and the result of “genetics.” Recently, an Obama czar was actually recorded explaining to students how to perform a particularly obscene homosexual act.
During this time period, our national crime rates have soared, and as mentioned above, Christian themes and beliefs have been constantly attacked. We now have a socialist controlled federal government who is actively working to remove all of our freedoms while engineering their control over all aspects of the private sector. In fact, according to the recently passed hate crime legislation, I have just committed a hate crime by calling homosexuality what it is - sin.
Thus, tracing back from 1962, we have 47 years of Godless education being pushed upon our children. Those children have transformed into adults. As a result, can there be any question as to why our nation is in this current moral decline?
This nation started it’s downfall with the removal of God from the classrooms. The only way to save this nation is by bringing God back into it, as well as back into all aspects of public life. I will leave you with a few quotes to consider:
Religion and virtue are the only foundations, not of republicanism and of all free government, but of social felicity under all government and in all the combinations of human society. – John Adams, 1811
Religion and good morals are the only solid foundation of public liberty and happiness. – Samuel Adams, 1778
And have we now forgotten that powerful Friend? Or do we imagine we no longer need its assistance? I have lived, Sir, a long time; and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this Truth, that God governs in the Affairs of Men. And if a Sparrow cannot fall to the Ground without his Notice, is it probable that an Empire can rise without his Aid? – Benjamin Franklin, Motion for Prayers in the Constitutional Convention, 1787
And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever. – Thomas Jefferson, 1781

The House of Representatives on Friday passed the most ambitious restructuring of financial regulation since the New Deal of the 1930s...
...The sprawling legislation would give the government new powers to break up companies that threaten the economy, create a new agency to oversee consumer banking transactions and shine a light into shadow financial markets that have escaped the oversight of regulators.
The vote was a party-line 223-202. No Republicans voted for the bill; 27 Democrats voted against it. - emphasis mine
I don't know about you, but this came as a shock to me as this was the first time I even heard of this legislature. Seemingly, BHO is attempting to instigate so many changes that it becomes impossible to keep up and to be informed. We have Cap & Trade, a health care "reform" bill that will most likely pass in the Senate - resulting in law, the multiple "stimulus" bills, and a whole slew of other draconian government policies which are also in position to become law.
What exactly is BHO attempting to do? Well, simply look at Chavez of Venezuela and what he has done to their country. He has changed everything towards government control of all sectors from finance and health to media. This is exactly what Obama is doing.
I have mentioned before, will repeat - it does not matter how much Americans protest this take over. The Democrat Socialists have shown their hubris over and over again by passing bills that they want, never mind that these are something that the people they supposedly represent, oppose.
Tea Partiers spent the Spring, Summer and Fall working hard to protest this dictatorial government, even having protests before the "hallowed halls" of Congress. Was any difference made? None what so ever. WND is leading a "Pink Slip" campaign where now over 8.25 million pink slips have been sent to congress. Has any difference been made from that effort? No.
It seems obvious to me what these communists have in mind - they intend to pass every law possible that suits their agenda, knowing that once they are in place they will be very difficult to repeal. For that to happen, Americans nation wide will have to overwhelmingly vote out the soclialists in both 2010 and 2012. Then, if the laws are repealed, they'll have to deal with a huge backlash from "sheeple" who have grown accustom to this intrusion of government control in their lives.
For the life of me, I cannot think of any way to resolve these issues short of armed resistance. Either the Lord will return soon to claim His own, or this country is heading to open revolt. Yet with BHO's cronnies in the UN and around the world, any open revolt by U.S. citizens will result in "peace keepers" being sent to this country, and mass injustices will be practiced against Americans on soverign soil. You may call this far fetched, but time will show that I am right.
My fellow Americans, you are living in a period of time where you are literally witnessing the decline of a once great nation. You are witnessing a barbaric take over of our government with the resulting loss of our rights and liberties. Sadly, you are witnesses to the end of America as we knew it.
It is not far fetched to recognize that outspoken people such as myself, as well as anyone who resists, will be herded up and placed into "re-education" centers throughout the nation. You may think that I am blowing things out of proportion, but who guessed three years ago that we would witness the toxic changes to American life that we now experience daily.
I hope to God that I'm wrong. However, I know that I'm not.
- Our leaders and a good portion of the population advocate abortion - the murder of unborn children.
- Pornography has become mainstream.
- Our leaders promote and support the sinful homosexual lifestyle.
- Our nation is in the process of removing all references to God.
- This nation promotes other faiths such as Islam over Christianity
- This nation actively teaches atheism to our children via humanistic and evolutionary theology in our schools.
- Christmas is no longer about Christ, but about the "holidays." A pox on those who'd actually call it "Christmas!"
- Our leaders are turning their backs on Israel.
Christians have become meek and barely voice their concern or outrage over the attacks daily committed towards them and their faith. They say, "Oh, but it's not loving to fight back!" Then is Jesus not loving? Do you not remember him calling the Pharisees "vipers" and "whited sepulchers?" Do you not remember him turning over the money changer tables in the temple? If you love someone, will you continue to watch them destroy their lives and do nothing? Where is the outrage? Where are those who'll stand for Christ? Do they exist at all anymore?
When December 25th comes around, and you sit at your dinner table and pray for God to bless America, consider what you have done in part for His glory, and honestly ask yourself, "Why would God bless America?" Never forget Sodom and Gomorrah.

We all make horrible mistakes, and sometimes those mistakes can lead to disaster. Yet what really happened here was not just a mistake, but the effects of sin running rampant. I don't know Tiger's faith, or even if he has one. I don't know his wife's faith either. What I do know is this - we all sin and though to us some sin is greater then others, in God's eyes, all sin is the same. That means, to God, lying is the same as murder or adultery. How is that? Because sin, no matter what it is, creates a gulf of separation between us and God - even the smallest lie. Yet there was a way created to bridge that gulf. That "way" is accepting the gift that Christ Jesus gave us upon the cross.
It is not my intention to stand here and point fingers at Tiger. In my own life, I freely admit that I am a sinner, and some of the sins I have committed have greatly affected others. I can only stand and write this because I know what true forgiveness means. I know this because of how God forgave me, even with others haven't. Out of that forgiveness was created a close and personal relationship between Him and I. His love, even in the depths of despair, can and does lift one up.
What has touched me most is this: a report from the Sun tabloid states that Tiger may quit golf. Why? Because his wife is choosing to stick with him and basically said that he has to choose between her and golf. He has to work hard to rebuild her trust, and ultimately their relationship. The fact that she is sticking with him, though for now only for the children, shows that his wife is more then simply a pretty face. She is a woman of character. She could easily divorce him and walk away as a multi-millionaire and be set for life. Yet for now, she is choosing family. When compared to the women Tiger has been with, Elin's true character outshines them all.
I can only hope that this report is true, and if it is, that Tiger will make the correct decision. Not many people who are caught in situations such as this are given a second chance. Some who are don't take that chance and ultimately end up walking down the road to their own personal destruction.
As reported now, some of his former mistresses have hired a high priced lawyer. It's obvious that they are going to use all of the public attention in an attempt to bleed Tiger dry. Regardless of the situation at home, and if he truly is repentant, all sin does carry a price that must be paid. God may forgive the bank robber, but he still must pay the time in jail for that crime. It is the same with all sin. There are always consequences. What may seem to be a "white lie" can ultimately, and almost always does, end up hurting someone involved. However, there is more to life then money. There are many people who live in poverty, yet who are rich in peace. Family is more important then all the gold in King Solomon's treasure. So far, it seems that they are recognizing this.
What needs to happen now is for God to touch the hearts of Tiger and Elin Woods. Due to the fact of the public spotlight, this will be even harder for them then for the rest of us. The pressures placed upon any marriage where adultery has occurred are immense. I cannot even begin to imagine how the public spotlight will intensify it. Many marriages have broken up from less, and I only hope that the Woods will allow God to heal their relationship so that this will not be the case for them.
Yet my concern is not only for them, but for their children. My heart breaks for children who are growing up in broken homes, such as mine currently are. I cannot begin to imagine the thoughts that go through such young minds, and the damage that can be done unto them. I hope and pray that the Woods' children will never have to know what it means to have a broken family.
Instead if criticizing Tiger, we need to be praying for the entire family. I hope that God will use this situation to bring Him into the midst of their trials, and that He will heal it. I know that God can and will. What remains for them is to but ask.
To the Woods family, I doubt that you'll ever read this posting. You are probably not even aware of this blog's existence. Yet I am here to say that I am praying for you. My heart truly goes out to you, and I hope God brings what your family needs into your lives, and that He will work powerfully.
Elin, I know how hurtful betrayal is. I know how, if left unguarded, it can turn your heart bitter. I empathize with you.
Tiger, I know that there are many temptations out there, and what starts off seeming to be something "fast" and "hidden" can quickly turn into a destructive addiction. I empathize with you as well.
We have all sinned, yet God is the powerful healer. He can heal this wound and ultimately use this to glorify Him. I know from personal experience the power of God, and the love which cannot even begin to be comprehended.
To the Woods family, my heart and prayers are with you!

Last month was somewhat interesting with all the health care news from the Senate. Also, we learned some more interesting facts about the so called "religion of peace" while discovering the joys of pipe smoking from my personal perspective.
This month will mostly be a reflection upon Christmas and the holiday season. I plan on writing a few Christian entries in the honor of Christ. These may not necessarily be political, per say, but will express my thoughts and beliefs concerning my faith. These will be in addition to what is commonly posted.
Today I spent some time reflecting on the traffic to this blog. I've stumbled on to some unexpected sources. I've also realized that, in a small way, what is being written here is making a difference. It's not large, but it's enough to keep me motivated - to keep me writing.
I confess that at times I've felt somewhat despondent. I sometimes I feel as if I'm writing into a vacuum, and that the efforts of research and wording are going to waste. Yet as I seriously ponder that thought, I come to a realization. It doesn't matter who agrees with me, who follows me, or what have you. I do not write out of a desire to seek fame, but out of a desire to bring truth from chaos. I want to cut through all the neutered PC garbage spewed forth from the mainstream media and delve right to the point. I write because I have to. If I didn't, I'd probably end up drinking myself into oblivion!
The fact of the matter is this - I'm angry. I'm angry and upset at how the name of this good country is being tarnish and smothered in the filth of political correctness. I'm tired of Obama apologizing for this country when we have absolutely nothing to apologize for! I'm tired of the fascist/commnuist politicians, educators, and tree hugging hippies who are trying to tear this nation down around us. They want to erect something that no true American can recognize. While doing this, they are viciously attacking the "old guard," whom are you and I.
My response to them is to write. I'm not afraid to say it as it really is, and I won't pull my punches either. If you are out there hurting this nation, attacking good people and trying to remove our liberties, I'll call you on it. I don't care if you're the President or some person living out of a cardboard box. I don't care what political party you affiliate yourself with. On this blog, social position means nothing. Actions mean everything. Character, above all, is what is important.
To those of you who are regular readers, and most especially to those of you who have subscribed, I thank you. I know that you may not agree with me 100% on what I say (I'll forgive you, we all have our faults!), but I do apprecaite your support. To those who have referred friends and families here, bless you!
In closing, I ask that we all take time this month to reflect on God and family. There is a much overused slogan that states "Jesus is the reason for the season," yet it's true. Christmas isn't about Santa Clause, snowmen, reindeer, elves, trees, ham or Christmas Lights. Christmas is about the ultimate gift given to us by God. Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus - God in the flesh. It celebrates what Jesus did for us by becoming the ultimate sacrifice for our sins, who by one action, gave us the opportunity to be free. In response, I ask that you take the time to tell those who are important to you how much you love them. And when you and your children spend December 25th unwrapping presents, remember the present that was given to you 2,000 years ago.
Merry Christmas and God bless!

Reid on Monday said Republicans were displaying the same mindset as those who defended slavery.
So you want to accuse us of having the same mindset of those who opposed the liberation of slaves? Here's a fact check for you, you ignorant racist pig - first off, it was the Democrat party that opposed slave liberation. It was the Republican party, lead by Abraham Lincoln who ultimately was forced to take this nation to a civil war because Democrat racists didn't want to treat blacks as equals. Second, it was the Democrat party who opposed equal rights in the early and mid 20th century. It was the Democrats who held on to their racist bigotry, and a Democrat president who brought in what could possibly be the most damaging social system to the blacks since slavery - government care. It is the Democrats who insist on destroying the black family unit by providing abortion on demand, welfare and all sorts of crap. The majority of black children are now born out of wedlock, thanks to Democrat policy. Yet you dare compare those of us who oppose this socialist - nay communist - take over of American liberty to your Democrat brethren of the 1800s? I would ask "how dare you" except you obviously do dare.
The liberals and so called "progressives" have kept race baiting alive and well. It's the socialist pigs who resort to accusing their detractors of all sorts of filth, from racism to hate crimes. Now the "leader" of the Senate has gone on record defending his claims and restating that those who oppose this government take over of health care (and ultimately our freedoms) as being proponents of slavery!
You know what Dingy Hairy? Go stand behind your racist labels. Go support your president in the attempted take over of America. Your time is coming, and soon when the 2010 elections come about, you and the rest of the racist, bigot mongers will be tossed out of office on to your asses. Don't you doubt for one minute that it can't happen. It will happen. Remember Tom Daschle? What happened to him can and will easily happen to you. Those of you who are in office now, who are actively trying to remake this country in the image of Stalin, your political careers are over. Period.
The American base will no longer stand for this abuse. If it means that this country needs to have another Civil War, so be it. You have been warned.

Woman: Question is: What’s fisting?
Man: A little known fact is that you don’t make a fist like this. When they do it, it’s like this. This is a lot easier than this. [laughter]
Woman: You work your way up to it… [unclear] one finger, two fingers, three fingers … Some people can take a hand, or they can’t take a hand.
It’s about tolerance? If Gay Straight Alliances are not about sex, why are the people who run Gay Straight Alliances telling students about fisting? What you did not see is the man leading the discussion positioning his hand and showing 14 year olds how to insert their entire hand into the rectum of their sex partner.
You just heard a public employee promote “fisting” to 14-year-olds. Kevin Jennings who ran GLSEN is now Barack Obama’s Safe Schools Czar.

The Branch Davidian cult, led by David Koresh, was a secluded group. They did not have an active paramilitary camp. They were in effect survivalists, though no threat to the government or American citizens. Yet on February 28, 1993, the BATF raided the complex “to serve arrest and search warrants as part of an investigation into illegal possession of firearms and explosives there.” - Frontline: Waco – The Inside Story
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms investigated David Koresh for conduct involving: the illegal manufacture of machine guns and the illegal manufacture and possession of destructive devices. The Department of the Treasury - MEMORANDUM TO THE PRESS
After a 51 day siege, where the complex was surrounded and tactics such as blaring loud music through the night were used to weaken the resistance of the Davidians, the BATF launched an assault by firing gas canisters into the complex and then used a tank to literally break through the compound walls. In addition to the 82 deaths, 9 Davidians were handed hefty prison sentences. Contrary to initial federal claims, discrepancies were found which have led many to believe that the Federal government proceeded illegally. Seven of the Davidians who received their sentencing afterwards had them reduced, and eventually all but one of the seven were released from prison. As well, “Two ATF supervisors, Chuck Sarabyn and Phillip Chojinacki, were fired, although they were later reinstated at a lower rank.” - Frontline: Waco – The Inside Story, FAQ 10
All of this was done by the Federal government against it’s own citizens 16 years ago, yet today’s active Islamic paramilitary camps are being either ignored or silently accepted. This is being sanctioned despite the hard facts of Islamic terrorism currently active around the world.
No matter how hard I wrack my brain in an attempt to find similar terrorist acts committed by followers of other religions, no examples arise that even begin to match the scope of what the followers of the so called “Religion of Peace” are committing. The closest I can come to is the Irish Republican Army (IRA) conflict. Yet this was a conflict that had its roots deep within British history. As well, the conflict remained almost exclusive to the British Isles. Although hard and bloody, and I do not intend in any way to lessen the losses suffered, only around 3,000 lives were lost in total since the violence began in the late 1960’s.
Islam, however, is a different story. In one day alone, September 11th, 2001, the entire death total suffered in the IRA/British conflict was inflicted upon innocent American citizens. 2,996 lives were lost as Islamic terrorists crashed airliners into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and an empty field in central Pennsylvania.
Since then, the "Religion of Peace" has wracked up a mind boggling 14,471 terrorist attacks as of the writing of this article. These are attacks, not death tolls. Including multiple attacks by Islamic nations on Israel, the death tolls alone reach well into the hundred of thousands. These are not “simple” deaths either. Beheadings, burnings, hangings, lynchings, as well as other innumerably hideous acts, are a common practice used by Islamic terrorists.
The Islamists are not confining their actions to one particular region of the world either. In addition to the Middle East, terrorist attacks have taken place in the United States, England, Spain, France, Africa, Russia, The Netherlands and many other nations throughout the world.
The attacks and death toll, combined with the hatred instilled into Muslim children concerning Israel and the West, should instill tremendous caution in the hearts of those who value freedom and life. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Either because of Political Correctness (PC), fear, or outright pandering, the leaders of the Western world have turned a blind eye to the festering cancer within their respective national borders. England, who suffered through bombings from both World Wars as well as terrorists attacks from the IRA and recent ones from Islamic terrorists, has allowed the Muslim extremist cancer grow within it’s borders. The United States is turning a blind eye to paramilitary camps on it’s soil, and Amsterdam is placing Geert Wilders on trial for daring to speak out against the truth of what is really happening.
Yet it has been shown in the past that if an organization is somewhat Christian, or at least non-Muslim, and only a fraction of these offenses are committed, the Western nations will not hesitate to crack down on the “offenders.” Again I must ask, why the duplicity?

Could the "scam" this email is talking about be the election of Obama and the resulting destruction of this country? I never knew that spammers/scammers were so concerned over the well being of Americans!

Lets start off with what happened on August 6th, of this year. Kenneth Gladney, a black conservative, was selling flags at a town hall event (I only mention his race for reasons you’ll see later). He was then attacked by members of the SEIU (Service Employees International Union) who issued a racial slur then proceeded to beat him to the ground. It was captured on video as you can see below:
After three months, the attackers were finally charged – with misdemeanor ordinance violations.
Then on November 4th of this year, a Christian was attacked at a Californian mall kiosk where Abdul Walid Hamid of Hayward:
tore a crucifix from a person's neck and scared others at Stoneridge Shopping Center.
...Hamid was yelling "Allah is power" and "Islam is great" while holding a pen in a fist over his head. Witnesses said he shouted anti-Christian comments, said police.
He was charged with:
battery, grand theft, exhibition of a deadly weapon and a possible hate crime. – emphasis mine
Then of course we have the well known incident at Ft. Hood where Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan slaughtered 13 soldiers and injured around two dozen more.
What were his charges? 13 counts of premeditated murder.
Next we have a black professor of English at the City College of New York (also a former Yale faculty member) who wrote an essay while sitting next to an anonymous male whom she “longs to murder.” Apparently she was upset over a lost seat on a commercial airlines flight. His offense? He was simply white. There has been no condemnation levied against her from her employer, nor from those who “jealously guard us against hate crimes.” Remember, she is a professor and as such, is “mentoring” the next generation of American leaders.
Lets do a fast recap. First we have a black conservative who was attacked by union members who called him a racial epitaph and beat him to the ground. It took 3 months for very limited charges to be levied against his assailants. Then we have a Muslim kiosk worker attacking a Christian by ripping a crucifix from his neck, shouting anti-Christian comments, and praising Islam. Next we have a Muslim fanatic who commits mass murder – all the while praising Allah. Please note that he hates the United States military. Finally we have a black professor who openly proclaims her hatred for whites and actually wrote about it. Yet none of the aggressors and/or perpetrators of these incidents were charged with a hate crime, with the exception of Abdul Walid Hamid who was charged with a "possible."
However, a Muslim woman who had her headscarf yanked pressed charges against the woman who did so. The woman was charged with a hate crime.
Does any of this make sense to you?

"In the era of the Internet, it has become easy to spread false or misleading rumors about almost anyone," Sunstein writes.
"Some right-wing websites liked to make absurd and hateful remarks about the alleged relationship between Barack Obama and the former radical Bill Ayers; one of the websites' goals was undoubtedly to attract more viewers," he writes.
Sunstein continues: "On the Internet as well as on talk radio, altruistic propagators are easy to find; they play an especially large role in the political domain. When Sean Hannity, the television talk show host, attacked Barack Obama because of his alleged associations, one of his goals might have been to promote values and causes that he cherishes."
Sunstein presents multiple new measures he argues can be used to stop the spread of "rumors."
He contends "freedom usually works, but in some contexts, it is an incomplete corrective."
Sunstein proposes the imposition of a "chilling effect" on "damaging rumors" – or the use of strong "corrective" measures to deter future rumor-mongers.
For websites, Sunstein suggests a "right to notice and take down" in which "those who runs websites would be obliged to take down falsehoods upon notice."
Sunstein also argues for the "right to demand a retraction after a clear demonstration that a statement is both false and damaging." But he does not explain which agency would determine whether any statement is false and damaging.
Sunstein further pushes for "deterrence" through making libel lawsuits easier to bring.
Read the full article here.
Cass Sunstein is the Obama Czar who wrote the new "Fairness Doctrine." It is obvious from his statements as well as the administrations continued assault on Fox News and talk radio that freedom means little to them.
Outgoing Czar Anita Dunn, who praised the Chinese Communist Mao Zedong, was joined earlier this month by Rahm Emanuel, Obama's Chief of staff, in an attack against Fox News. In one of her, hopefully, final outgoing statements to the press, she once more attacked Fox News along with Carl Rove and the Bush Administration. She then goes on to praise MSNBC which is a well known extremist liberal cable news station.
...when asked, that Obama was aware of the strategy to criticize Fox. “I am not a person who is known for going rogue,” she said.
We can be thankful to Anita Dunn for one thing - she made it absolutely impossible for Obama to deny that the attacks on free speech against those who oppose his socialist views are done without his knowledge or consent. In fact, I would go so far as to say that he encourages it.
American liberty, prosperity, and the pursuit of happiness are directly under assault by a man who wants to set up a dictatorship within the United States of America. He has specifically chosen advisers, "czars," who share his agenda. He already owns an auto company, controls the banking industry, maintains control on almost every mainstream media outlet and is seeking to control our health industry. In addition, Obama is now seeking federal control of America's subway and light-rail systems. As well, we now have a military that seeks to squash the rights of those who speak out against the abuses perpetrated against us.
Those of us who have the courage to speak out against these barbaric acts are instead labeled terrorists. Those of us who value freedom enough to risk our very well being are under attack (here, here and here).
If this administration has its way, no one will be able to criticize what Obama and his followers are doing. The time to speak up is now. The time to act is now. There can no longer be any doubt concerning this administration's true goals. America, do you still value liberty? Do you still value freedom?
We all have heard how ACORN has used bribery and voter intimidation to have elections swung in their direction. In addition, we are well aware of two brave college students, posing as a pimp and prostitute, which went under cover to expose this underhanded organization. Now it has come to light that just as ACORN was about to be investigated, they threw out thousands of sheets of documentation, un-shredded, into a public dumpster.
Shockingly, we now learn that the ACORN office in National City (San Diego County) engaged in a massive document dump on the evening of October 9th, containing thousands upon thousands of sensitive documents, just days prior to the Attorney General’s visit.
BigGovernment.com has learned that not only did this document dump occur, but the documents in question were irresponsibly and brazenly dumped in a public dumpster, without considering laws and regulations as to how sensitive information should be treated
I am a local licensed private investigator. I took it upon myself to keep an eye on what the local ACORN office was up to, in light of the release of the undercover videos. I retrieved these documents from the public dumpster.
I strongly urge that you view the full article at the link above. In addition to the facts, video has been posted.
The hammer is coming down hard on this corrupt organization. BigGovernment.com states that they will release more information over time. Also stated is that that they have some very damaging documentation in their possession that, unless ACORN is investigated, will be released during the 2010 elections. Lets face it folks, the Democrat party and their extremely radical power base is going down hard and fast.
In other news, SEIU, the union that was Obama’s strong backers and primary beneficiaries of his current presidency, is also being exposed. With a hat tip to Michelle Malkin who first brought this story to the national spotlight, the Morning Call reports:
In pursuit of an Eagle Scout badge, Kevin Anderson, 17, has toiled for more than 200 hours hours over several weeks to clear a walking path in an east Allentown park.
Little did the do-gooder know that his altruistic act would put him in the cross hairs of the city's largest municipal union.
Nick Balzano, president of the local Service Employees International Union, told Allentown City Council Tuesday that the union is considering filing a grievance against the city for allowing Anderson to clear a 1,000-foot walking and biking path at Kimmets Lock Park.
"We'll be looking into the Cub Scout or Boy Scout who did the trails," Balzano told the council.
SEIU thugs have attacked peaceful protesters during the summer Tea Parties, used intimidation tactics during elections, and are wholly, in my strong and unapologetic opinion, corrupt.
However nothing can be hidden forever and thankfully the corruption of this administration as well as its supporters is being tossed into the light of Truth.
The question I want to pose to you is this: Are you willing, regardless of your political affiliation, to accept what has been happening in this country? Are you willing to stand back and claim that it is only the “fringe” that is causing these problems or instead are you willing to be intellectually honest and admit that this is the most corrupt government ever in the history of the United States? Are you willing to swallow your pride and perhaps long standing hatred of the opposite political party and join hands with your fellow citizens to fight this evil? The facts are plain to see for anyone who is willing to look. All the information that you need to make an honest decision is readily available. Many people from all over the political spectrum have banded together to fight this corruption which resides in the highest offices of American power. It doesn’t matter if you are a Democrat, Republican, Independent, Libertarian, Constitutionalist, etc. This has gone beyond all political parties. What is at stake here is your freedom.
During the early stages of the Revolutionary war, there were two sides: the Liberals and the Conservatives. During that period, the Liberals were the ones actively pushing for independence while the Conservatives resisted such change. Yet as the obvious corruption from the crown became more and more apparent, those sides banded together. They united as one in both opinion and force of arms. They valued freedom above “party loyalty.” While there were the Conservative extremists who would continue to back the Crown no matter what, the majority of the colonials knew that liberty was at stake. In spite of their differences they banded together wrote the Declaration of Independence.
Today we are witnessing a similar, and perhaps more frightening, display of corruption from within our government. Now is the time to work together regardless of our differing opinions. Those who fought, sacrificed and died for our freedoms displayed by example that those who truly love liberty can and must work together.
Do you love liberty? Do you value freedom? Do you truly want the government to tell you what you can eat, drink, smoke, drive, wear, etc. al.? Or do you want the freedom to make your own decisions and have the self satisfaction and pride that comes along with working through your own problems and then prospering? For every control we give the government, it is a freedom which you and I relinquish. How many freedoms are you willing to hand over before you finally say, “enough is enough!”?
The Truth shall set you free!
I felt that it is fitting to repost an entry I wrote on August 24th of this year. It is titled, "Freedom's Call."
These are the times that try men’s souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it Now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict the more glorious the triumph.
Thomas Paine, The Crisis, December 1776
An echo from two-hundred thirty-three years in the past resonates today in the hearts of men and women, patriots, soldiers, warriors - defenders of freedom. Thus is our call to battle. Like patriots of old, we are called upon this day to face the forces of tyranny.
The enemy is vast and well entrenched. From youth, our children are raised in government institutions, taught government policy, shown government lies, and brainwashed to see Truth as evil.
From the vast halls of printing presses from New York through Los Angeles, the liberal ideologue of lies spews forth its venom, slaying citizens where they exist – their homes, places of worship or employment.
The bastions of higher education have transformed into breeding grounds of communistic ideologies. Within theses formerly sacred walls, the promoters become enforcers of demonic thought, praising the tyrants of freedom’s cry.
Deeply entrenched within the very wellspring of government policy, the enemies of freedom rule with a fist of iron. With a fanatic determination, they seek to remove every historical vestige of America’s founding principles. These include our nation’s reliance upon God and the Holy Scriptures as this nation’s primary influence, self reliance through hard work and individual achievement, as well as the strong, rugged character that has defined this country since before its inception.
This war will not be easily won, as it is indeed a war that we find ourselves in. The casualties of which have already been felt. The primal element of liberty, the ability to speak out against those who would destroy our very country, has been hampered.
In addition, the proponents of freedom have been marked as un-American terrorists, unworthy of respect. Time and time again, they are informed that they do not speak for the country as a whole, and are instead an “angry mob,” which should be dealt with accordingly. The suppressors of freedom have been advised that when they are hit, they should hit back twice as hard.
As this war progresses, more freedoms will be lost, while the persecution of patriots will increase. Indeed, this is not a conflict for the faint of heart!
Yet this is a war that can, and must be won! Our armory is vast, containing beyond two-hundred years of American history. We have our Constitution, the principles and actions of our Founding Fathers, and above all, our faith in the Divine Creator who formed this nation to be His mouthpiece to the world during the time of the Gentiles.
We must not let ourselves be intimidated by the enemies of freedom.
- It is imperative that we instruct our children on the history of this great nation. We must instill within them the same principles our fore-fathers held. We must lead by example as we boldly step forward and refuse to be silenced.
- When those in power hold their public meetings, we must continue to appear in force.
- We must educate our family, friends and neighbors by engaging in open dialogue.
- We must be diligent in our efforts to remove corruption from its seat of power, replacing evil with liberty.
- We must be careful to wage this war with facts, not speculations based upon third -hand sources. Before any discussion is engaged, arm yourself with facts then present them in an nonthreatening manner.
- Unify the Conservative community. If there are dissenters, confront them. Now is not the time for infighting. There is no room in any army for those who would undermine or strive against it.
I will not lie to you. Some of us will end up paying a heavy price in this fight for freedom. You may very well end up being such a martyr. Yet consider how our actions will influence the history of this nation. Will we shirk the duty our fore-fathers placed upon us in the interest of self preservation? Or will we endure to the end, that the descendents of our children may enjoy the freedom which we are so quick to profess a love for?
This war is unlike any other. It is not fought with instruments of death, but with ideas. The blood spilled is our freedom; the cries of agony are the cries of those who love that which this country has always represented. Will you stand idly by, watching others fight the battle for you, or will you consider the importance of our cause and join us?
The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people….This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution.
John Adams – 1818
Viva La Liberte!

Fort Bragg spokesman Tom McCollum told The Associated Press that the military post's garrison commander and other Army officials had decided to keep media away from Palin's book signing, which will not include a speech. He said the Army did not want the Monday event to become a platform to express political opinions "directed against the commander in chief."
However, if you’re not a member of the media, feel free to attend.
So let me see if I can understand this – media, who reports on events such as this one, are not allowed to attend. The military doesn’t want reporters to show the large gathering that Palin brings, even though it has been acknowledge that she hasn’t made any political speeches at previous signings.
McCollum told us exactly why the media was prevented. He stated:
"The main reason is to stop this from turning into a political platform," he said. "There are Army regulations that basically prohibit military reservations from becoming political platforms by politicians."
He said only one politician can use that platform, "and that person does it as our commander in chief."
Yet Sarah is not a politician. She is no longer governor of Alaska, and is not actively campaigning. She does however have strong opinions concerning Obama.
McCollum said it's not clear if military officials consider Palin a politician but noted that she has been critical of Obama while promoting the book. She said in an interview with ABC News that Obama should provide more troops to Afghanistan.
What McCollum is saying is that if you criticize the president, your freedom of speech will be curtailed, no questions asked.
The military, which was supposed to be the protectors of American liberty, now appear to have taken the side of our Dictator in Chief. They’re standing silently by as Obama grabs more power from his bosses, you and I, while actively protecting him from those who speak out against his policies.
When did the military start forgetting it’s oath to defend the United States and at the same time allow itself to be used as a tool towards extinguishing liberty?
One thing is certain – when political and military power joins forces to suppress freedom of expression, nothing good will come of it. History is replete with examples of the tyranny which has been birthed by such unholy unions.
