I'm Confused

I’ve been sitting here for the past few days trying to comprehend some events that have happened recently. Yet no matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to come to any clear understanding. Perhaps you can help me out?

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?

Attacking Freedom of Speech

From WorldNet Daily:

"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.

In addition:

...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?

The Truth Shall Set Us Free!

With all the gloom and doom possessing the news in America, something great is finally hitting the airwaves and print! As covered extensively on Drudge and WND, ACORN is going down – hard.

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. 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. 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.

Freedom of Speech Curtailed at Ft. Bragg

If you’re a member of the media, don’t bother trying to show up for Sarah Palin’s appearance at Ft. Bragg. As the AP reports:

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.

This is a completely off topic post that really doesn’t have much to do with politics. It does, however, have everything to do with my lifestyle. Before I begin, please note that I am not attempting to convince anyone to smoke. At the same time, I’m encouraging those who already do to pick up the pipe!

Around June or July of this year, I took up the pipe simply out of a desire to save money. I was getting tired of being taxed to death on cigarettes. With a pack nearing $5, and me smoking on average a pack a day, that was simply too expensive for my blood. When I picked up the pipe, in reality, I never went back.

For those of you who consider pipe smoking as an outdated “fashion,” I’d like to refer you to the OoOPS Famous Pipe Smokers List.

For instance, I bet you didn’t know that Ronald Reagan smoked a pipe! Here are some more famous people who have partaken of this delightful weed:

John Adams
Neil Armstrong
Yul Brynner
Samuel Clemens
Bill Cosby
Davy Crocket
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Wyatt Earp
Albert Einstein
Dwight Eisenhower
John Ford
Ulysses S. Grant
Edwin P. Hubble
Andrew Jackson
C.S. Lewis
Douglas MacArthur
Isaac Newton
George Patton
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Dr. Seuss
Sylvester Stallone
J.R.R. Tolkien
Bob Villa

For me, the pipe is a relic of a past era where times were slower, people stopped to say “hello,” and intellect was considered a greater commodity than beauty or wealth. Some of the greatest minds and personalities in the Western experience either were or currently are pipe smokers.

As I go through the day and then close down my night, the aromas of high quality tobacco waft through the air – the smoke curling gently as if to say, “all is well.” A cigarette is for a fast infusion of nicotine whereas a pipe is for far more then simply an addiction. It still represents class, etiquette and sophistication. It represents a by-gone era.

In this day and age, people have been convinced that tobacco is a great evil, its users scorned and itself taxed into non-existence. Yet in the meantime, marijuana is promoted as a “medicine” for those suffering from some sort of illness and society is being pressed towards its acceptance. As a matter of fact, it is so accepted that while still being “illegal,” it will now be taxed. That’s right, while tobacco, the master of the ages is being persecuted, marijuana is all but accepted and praised for its “benefits.”

I’ll be smoking a pipe until my last breath. As I write articles and fanciful tales of knights in shining armor, smoke will be slowly drifting from my Peterson. Then, I’ll let the smooth aroma of Irish Cream waft past my nostrils as I dictate songs of passion into poetic beauty.

If you currently smoke, I highly recommend that you consider the pipe. It is truly an art form that will take you back to kinder, gentler days.

Old Glory

This is going to get me flack from some of my readers, I know it. Yet at the same time I have to ask: “What is Sarah doing?” recently ran a story where the picture below taken for “Runners World” was sold against contract orders to Newsweek.

Questions of “sexism” and contract breaches run throughout the article, yet one thing kept jumping out at me that was not brought up. Why is the American flag draped over a chair, and why is Sarah leaning on it?

Call me old fashioned. Call me a prude. But I believe that the American flag should be displayed proudly where it belongs - on a flag pole or draped solemnly over the casket of one who sacrificed all for their country. If it’s not being used for such, then it should be folded properly and with honor kept high and dry off the ground. The American flag should never be used as a prop, ever!

Throughout our history, many Americans gave the ultimate price so that Old Glory could be hung with the honor and respect it deserves. It was the rallying beacon for those who fought for our independence. It was held aloft while this nation fought against itself. It was placed proudly upon Mt. Suribachi on Iwo Jima where one marine died for every yard gained to the summit. It has been held proudly, fought for, bled for, and died for in every war since.

I do respect Sarah’s political stance. I respect a lot of what she has said. However, no matter the reason this picture was taken, I cannot respect the misuse of the American flag.

Do I think that she intentionally tried to disrespect Old Glory? Of course not. Yet I feel that this picture is the result of a disease that has infested mainstream American thinking for the past 50 years. No longer is the history of this great nation spoken about with pride and reverence. Instead, our public school teachers and university professors attempt to find everything that is “bad” about America and teach it to their students. Children are no longer told of the great sacrifices of this country’s founders, nor of the great things the United States has done – and continues to do.

Instead of showing reverence and being thankful for the nation which houses them, people now take for granted the existence of this great country. Sometimes they will actually loath what America stands for and attempt to change it. I feel that the election of Barack Obama is a fine example where we now have a president who is attempting to change everything that this country once stood for, and in the processes, is turning America into a socialist nation.

It is past time that America returns to her roots! Her citizens should return to the pride once felt by their ancestors. Schools and universities should teach their students what is great about this nation, and should instill a sense of honor and respect to their audience.

Why is the picture of the flag raising on Iwo Jima so famous? Because it represents the sacrifice that American men made for freedom. It represents pride that this country’s citizens once felt. Old Glory ultimately represents liberty.

PS - Did you notice that Google wouldn't allow the previous article to be "dug?" Yet when this article was posted, the options became immediately available. PC reigns with them, that's for sure!

H1N1, The Plague, and Islam - A Connection?

I don’t mean to be an “alarmist,” nor is it my intention to start rumors. However, a thought has been floating around in my mind for a while now. I’m going to list the facts and extrapolate from there.

On December 4, 2004, STRATFOR Global Intelligence released a report which stated:

A pamphlet published on the CIA’s Web site says al Qaeda documents captured in Afghanistan indicate that the network possesses crude procedures for producing VX nerve agent, sarin and mustard gas. In light of this information, the mainstream media recently have focused on the possibility that al Qaeda will use chemical and/or biological weapons (CBWs) against the United States and U.S. interests abroad.

…The evidence is clear: al Qaeda does possess the capability to make and use crude chemical and biological weapons…

…Al Qaeda has a history of attempting to commit spectacular terrorist attacks. Sometimes they have succeeded. As STRATFOR has argued, al Qaeda is under tremendous pressure to commit another attack — and a spectacular one at that…

Then in January 19, 2009 we had reports of a bungled experiment by al Qaeda “operatives” which caused them to contract a strain of bubonic plague. Since then, starting mainly in China (although the first death was in Europe) where they are undergoing attacks by Islamic forces, swine flu (H1N1) reared its ugly head and quickly spread throughout the world. The United States and many other nations are pushing this as a widespread plague without the results one would expect, so far.

Now there is alarming news from the Ukraine. First off, there was a report on the 27th of October, 2009 from Interfax. It stated:

Simferopol, October 27, Interfax - Ukrainian police and Security Service operatives on October 23 arrested men who are accused of Islamic extremism and terrorist plots, Interior Minister Yury Lutsenko said.

The suspects had planned to set up branches in the autonomous Crimea region and elsewhere in Ukraine of Egyptian Islamist organization Al-Takfir wa al-Hijra, to pass death sentences on Crimean Tatar movement leader Mustafa Jemilev and on others, and to carry put terrorist attacks in Ukraine, Lutsenko told a news conference in Simferopol, Crimea's administrative center.

Now there are fresh reports from the region concerning an unprecedented virus outbreak which is being labeled by some as a plague. A report from Daily Express states:

A cocktail of three flu viruses are reported to have mutated into a single pneumonic plague, which it is believed may be far more dangerous than swine flu. The death toll has reached 189 and more than 1 million people have been infected, most of them in the nine regions of Western Ukraine.

Why has the United States pushed for vaccinations against H1N1 and initiated dire warnings of its impact upon its citizens? Although there have been deaths, they have not been on the scale of historical plagues. At most, the death rate has only been slightly higher then normal for the seasonal flu. The main difference is that sadly, it is affecting children more then anyone else. Yet why is there an alarm over a “wide spread outbreak” that has yet to occur?

Obviously, I don’t trust Obama and his administration. I could be linking facts together that are simply unrelated. It is not unfeasible in the least to contemplate that they would try to create a panic to gain more socialist control of the nation. This administration has shown through their actions in other sectors that it is their desire to transform the United States from a Republic governed by the people into a Socialist empire governed by the so-called “elites.” However, that does not also mean that this couldn’t be a real threat caused by Islamic terrorists. We clearly recall Rahm Emmanuel, Obama’s Chief of Staff, stating that “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” This could be the serious crisis he was referring to, one that the Obama Administration is using to gain more control.

A short list of facts follows:

  • We know that throughout the world, Islam has declared war upon the “infidels.”
  • We know that Al Qaeda has a history of trying to work with weapons of mass destruction (WMD's). They have tried to obtain nuclear weapons in the past, yet with the scrutiny placed upon such weapons, they may be looking in another direction (Biological).
  • We know that Osama Bin Laden has continued to send out video and/or audio recordings warning the United States and other nations to convert to Islam, to surrender, as well as a bunch of other filth or else we will "face the consequences." Although there have been acts of violence attributed to them, nothing on the scale of 9-11 has occurred. What if they were planning something else?
  • We know that Al Qaeda has the capability to produce biological WMDs.
  • We know that an Al Qaeda cell was infected with strains of the Plague earlier this year.
  • We know that the United States, along with other nations, is pushing for its citizens to be vaccinated from a threat that has yet to reach plague proportions.
  • We know that just recently in the Ukraine, a cell of Islamic terrorists was captured.
  • We know that the Ukraine is now battling an actual plague.

Is it too extreme to consider that all of these events are somehow related?

Update - I highly recommend that you go to the Hal Lindsey website and watch his most recent episode dated 11/16/2009. In it, he reveals the Islamic religion for what it really is, while at the same time showing the dangers of Political Correctness.

It's Not Ignorance, It's Complete Disdain

Much is being said about B.O.’s recent bow to Japan’s Emperor Akihito. What is not being comment on is why this was done. Simply put, it’s Obama’s way of explicitly letting the American people know that he does not care about them in any way, shape or form.

When the frothing Muslim fanatic slaughtered our soldiers in Ft. Hood, what was B.O’s response? He spent two minutes giving a “shout out” to someone and then talked about his domestic policies. Finally he addressed Ft. Hood. He went on to ask us not to “jump to any conclusions” even though the evidence clearly shows that this mass-murder was committed by a Muslim in the name of his god.

Early on in B.O.’s presidency, he caused an uproar by bowing to a Saudi prince. His hacks in the White House did everything they could to deny the event. They are well aware of America’s reaction to their leader bowing to anyone. So is he.

The terrorist masterminds behind 9-11 are now going to be tried in a court in New York City. It’s going to be a civilian court, not a military one. He is going to give these pigs the same rights as Americans, even though they are not such. He is going to “prosecute” them as civilians even though these dogs have already confessed to their actions and have asked to be executed. This could take up to two years to happen and cost the American tax payer millions of dollars. In the mean time, this will focus Muslim outrage on a populace that has already had more then it’s share of Islamic violence. During this sham of a trial, it will not be these mass murderers who will be prosecuted, it will be the United States itself.

B.O.’s plan to deal with the inmates at Gitmo is to ship them to prisons in the United States. Instead of protecting America, he is intentionally moving these animals who want to slaughter us into our heartland.

Obama fought like the gangster he is to have the “Health Care Reform” bill passed in the House, even though it is quite obvious that the American populace does not want it. This was made plainly clear with the over 4.5 million pink slips sent to congress, multiple rallies throughout the nation, and a last minute event that drew, what some estimates claim, up to 10,000 protesters to the doors of Congress itself. The American populace is told that it will provide health care for everyone. This is an outright lie. Even if this travesty of a bill is ratified in the Senate, there will still be millions of Americans not covered. It is a simple fact that Medicare could cover every single uninsured American for a fraction of the price. I don’t agree with this, but it can be done easily. Yet it just shows that the welfare of the United States citizen does not concern him. What does concern him is his own personal power.

America’s men and women are being killed in Afghanistan while B.O. remains “undecided” about sending the troop increase requested by the military. Moral is falling fast. Obama is undecided because of his anti-war base in America. He doesn’t care that our sons and daughters are being slaughtered. Instead, he’s concerned about his re-election possibilities. He will only increase our military presence there if he is absolutely sure that it will not affect his chance of staying president for a second term (and perhaps beyond).

Some people claim that Obama is simply "stupid" or inexperienced. They claim that he is committing these “errors” out of ignorance. Those who make these statements are sadly mistaken. Obama ran an amazing (yet corrupt) campaign where he convinced the unlearned and uncaring masses to vote for him. He was such a master at this that he did not have to lie to the American populace about his intentions. He promised change, and he described what type of change it would be. Through his charisma, he played upon America’s guilt. He played the race card to the hilt and worked on those who are controlled by their emotions. Obama ran an amazing campaign indeed.

I do not have an ounce of respect for this man who is occupying the highest seat in the United States. Yet I do not underestimate him. Here is a man who has a high degree of intellect only to be matched with the largest ego ever witnessed in a sitting President. He does not care for you America. He wants your votes because he wants power. Once he has that power, his “concern” for you is gone.

Obama is the closest thing America has ever had to a dictator. He is working hard to remain in power. He is working hard to change the face of this country. He has shown his loath for you by apologizing to everyone he can find. He and his wife have shown their disdain for you – before and after the election. They will continue to do so.

No, I do not respect Obama at all. Yet I will not underestimate this man. Neither should you.

I Love Texas!

What’s the first thing most people think about when they hear the word, “Texas?” For me, it’s the Alamo. Brave frontiersmen fought an invading army from Mexico to the death so that freedom would be given a chance. They’re doing it again today, being led by Governor Rick Perry.

Texas – the second largest state in the Union with the second largest economy (which is also one of the largest economies in the world) is well known for citizens who won’t put up with bull. They’re fiercely independent; they have to be. They live in a harsh desert environment and bear the brunt of illegal immigration from Mexico. They also have to deal with the wilds of nature considering that they get their fair share of tornadoes and floods.

Yet with all of this going on, or perhaps as a result of it, these people fight fiercely for their rights and freedoms! They know what is truly important – family, country music (well that's debatable), the economy, and most importantly, liberty!

The remaining 49 states of the union needs to follow the example set by Texas. They need to cast aside the chains of bondage placed upon them by government, progressivism, and left wing wackos who’s only desire is to ruin this great country.

Below is a video clip from the which shows Gov. Perry boldly proclaiming the truth. I encourage you to view it. In addition, I encourage you to reach out to your fellow Americans and tell them to “wake up!”

Is It Time For a Second Declaration of Independence?

On November 6, 2009, the House Committee of Ways and Means issued a press release warning Americans of the draconic measures contained within H.R. 3962 (as amended). The Pelosi bill mandates that citizens purchase health care or face fines and/or imprisonment. H.R. 3962 was passed at 11pm on Saturday night, November 7, 2009. (Hat tip Rushlight)

On Thursday, October 22, 2009, Pelosi was asked by a reporter from if the Constitution authorizes Congress to order Americans to purchase health insurance. Her response was:

“Are you serious? Are you serious?”

Pelosi's press secretary later responded to written follow-up questions from by emailing a press release on the “Constitutionality of Health Insurance Reform,” that argues that Congress derives the authority to mandate that people purchase health insurance from its constitutional power to regulate interstate commerce.

Article I, section 8 of the United States Constitution describes Congressional authority. No single statement was found to even imply that officials elected by United States citizens have the right to demand the purchase of any form of health care.

The United States Bill of Rights lays out what the Founders felt was imperative for freedom. Amendment 10 states:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

This proclaims that if not stated within the Constitution, the federal government has no right to make new laws nor to obtain more power.

A famous saying is that history repeats itself. However it does not repeat itself exactly. Instead, historical events bearing frightening similarity to the past do indeed repeat when those in the present do not learn from such. Americans of today are experiencing events similar to what the colonies faced prior to the Revolutionary War. Upon viewing the Declaration of Independence, one will find comments such as these:

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

One example of such is:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

It continues:

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

The United States of the 20th century and beyond has come to resemble the condition of the 13 colonies prior to their revolt from England. Government corruption has become widespread. Multiple government agencies, unauthorized by the Constitution, have sprung into being. (The A-Z Index of U.S. Government Departments and Agencies lists the hundred of unconstitutional entities now in existence)

As well, the fundamental forms of our government are being subtly altered with unelected czars being placed into positions of power. States’ rights have been overshadowed and replaced by the federal government, freedom of speech has been neutered, private corporations have been seized, federal control of currency is maintained by a non government agency (the Federal Reserve), and the American populace is being taxed into poverty.

As the colonists before us, we have attempted to address these issues with those in power. We have done so through Town Hall gatherings, Tea Party protests, and protests before the actual House of Congress in Washington, D.C. Yet has anyone in power truly listened? Unfortunately, the answer is no. The most recent example of this was the passage of H.R. 3962 in the depth of a Saturday night – much like thieves in the darkness moving in when their victims are unaware.

Corruption and injustice now infest our highest political offices, yet none with power whatsoever feel inclined to fight it. Perhaps it truly is time to declare a second Declaration of Independence and throw off, once again, these chains of tyranny.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

How H. R. 3962 Was Passed - Satire Piece

It has been reported that B.O. had an emergency meeting with his Democrat "posse" before the House vote on H. R. 3962 passed in the middle of the night. By using my exceptional abilities to go back in time and secretly listen in on the meeting, this is what I saw and heard!

The following is a true story. Only the names of the innocent have been changed to protect their identity.

Flashes of lightning briefly shown through the closed curtains of the darkened room. Through the veil of blue smoke produced by a smoldering Cuban cigar, dark forms were huddled before a lone figure as he stood before them. Only the sound of rain tapping against the roof and the occasional bout of thunder broke the deathly silence within.

“I am greatly displeased,” said the man finally in his deep baritone voice. “Pelosi, tell me why I should consider your efforts on my behalf as a success.”

Her voice shaking in fear, her second chin trembling in motion with her body, she replied, “Don Obama, I have worked hard for your glorious vision! Through my efforts and those of the Association for Community Organization Reform Now we were -”

“Enough!” shouted the tall figure as he pointed his Cuban, ash falling from it’s lit tip. “I am well aware of ACORN’s efforts on my behalf! Through them, many votes were bought! If it wasn’t for those two students who infiltrated and exposed them, they would still be fighting strongly for our cause! Secretary Napolitano, please explain how you managed to let two people, barely in their 20’s expose my operation?”

Sweat glistening on the pale skin of her brow, Napolitano slowly stood up. “Don Obama, (peace be upon you), they were plants of the freedom loving Capitalists. Who knew that they would have the audacity to –? “

“Dare you use ‘audacity’ in my presence?” The Don asked, visibly shaking with rage. “Do you not remember my slogan, ‘The Audacity to Hope’?”

“Forgive my ignorance, great one (peace be upon you)!” replied Napolitano and she quickly sat down with her head lowered. The others in the room shuffled aside in an attempt to place some distance between them and her. It was obvious that they were not eager to share in her fate.

“Our situation is shaky,” the deep voice continued. “Patriots have risen throughout their country opposing my plan. I own an automotive giant, banking industries, and the news media.” He gave a silent nod to Keith Olbermann who sat proudly, smiling as a lost puppy. Reaching out to gently pat the lap dog at his feet, the Don continued, “However, my ‘Health Care Reform’ bill seems to have halted in Congress. It may be that my plans will be stopped well short of their intended conclusion. For your sakes, I hope someone has a plan to resolve this critical issue.”

Sensing a way to redeem herself in the eyes of her master, Pelosi shot to her feet. “Oh but we do, oh great one (peace be upon you)! Thanks to the efforts of our unofficial allies, America is in mourning for her lost soldiers in Fort Hood. Now is the time to strike! I intend to allow the conservatives to modify H. R. 3962 so that government money will not be used to fund abortions except in rare cases such as rape or,” she snickered evilly, ”cases where the mother’s life is threatened. Of course, we’ll make sure the American public stays uninformed to the truth that with our medical technology it is almost impossible – well, at least until this bill is passed.”

Her second chin swinging with renewed effort, she continued. “Then to prevent our enemies in talk radio and, I hesitate to say their name, Fox News, from fighting this, we’ll leak that the vote may not come until next week. We’ll hold debate deep into the night, and while the majority of American’s are asleep, we’ll vote on the bill. I’m pretty certain that with the abortion amendments, we will be able to garnish enough votes.”

Silence filled the room as the Don stared long and hard at the bold Speaker of the House while taking the occasional draw on his Cuban. After enough silence had filled the room in an apparent effort to impress the gravity of the situation on those in attendance, the Don spoke, “Your plan has merit. I will look past your previous failures if you manage to keep your word to me, this time. Be it known, however, that if you fail me in this, your future as my political voice to Congress will be in doubt… perhaps permanently. Do we have an understanding?”

The bold smile that was plastered on Pelosi’s mouth disappeared instantly. Not even the injections of Botox could not prevent her face from revealing the truth of her situation. “I… I understand, oh great one (p - peace be upon you),” she stammered. “I will not fail you!”

“See to it that you do not,” the Don replied.

Hours later found the Don sitting alone in the once filled room. The storm outside had strengthened with thunder echoing off the close walls. Yet he wore a smile. Pelosi’s plan had worked. H. R. 3962 had passed in the middle of the night, 220 for, 215 against.

Who are the innocents, you may ask? There are no innocents.

Although this is a satire piece, it's not hard to extrapolate that something along these lines occurred. Deception, threats and middle of the night meetings along with bribery seems to be the way the Chicago machine in the White House does business. Let us hope that the Senate will not fall to such strong arm tactics.

Who Needs to Prevent Backlash Against Muslims?

Janet Napolitano, while in the United Arab Emirates, stated the she and her department of Homeland Security are working hard to prevent a backlash against Muslims.

Janet Napolitano says her agency is working with groups across the United States to try to deflect any backlash against American Muslims following Thursday's rampage by Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, a Muslim who reportedly expressed growing dismay over the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

My question to her is this – just what is she doing in a foreign country during a time of attacks against her own nation? What takes more precedence, sucking up to foreign Arabs or being in your home nation providing moral support and actively seeking to prevent any future attacks from occurring?

As far as preventing “backlash” against resident Muslims, that is no longer the American civilian’s responsibility. It’s beyond time that the Muslim community stood up and lead a vocal and active campaign of their own to not only condemn these acts, but to prove to the American society at large that Islam really is the religion of peace they claim it to be.

Instead, all we hear are groups such as CAIR complain about perceived (and sometimes contrived) injustices committed against Muslims. Yet the American public daily runs into situations where honor killings occur, bigoted cabbies mistreat passengers, corporations and individuals being threatened, etc al. The only time we hear anything from the Islamic population in American that “shows” they are lovers of peace is after the fact of some horrible slaughter. Why not stay vocal and pro-active during times when such slaughters are not happening?

The average American is a peace loving individual. We don’t seek conflict. Yet we will vigorously stand for our rights and the rights of others. We don’t need someone shoving phrases such as, “Islam is a religion of peace,” when all we see is the opposite. To the average American, actions speak louder then words. It’s time for the Islamic community to start backing up their words with those actions.

Freedom Voted Down in the Black of Night (Corrected)

* - Article changed to reflect that the bill was indeed posted on-line at least 72 hours before the vote for public viewing. Hat Tip to David for correcting me on this issue and providing the link!

In the black of night, Pelosi snuck in a vote on the "health care reform" bill H. R. 3962, which sadly passed. This new administration promised openness. Sadly, that was not the case. It's final form was drafted outside of the public eye. The bill was posted here for review. Consisting of nearly 2,000 pages, it proposes major socialist changes to our health care system. It now goes before the Senate.

Appalled but no longer surprised

I was speaking to my father on the phone yesterday about events that were happening at the local "Constitution Class" here in Pocatello. I mentioned some of what I wrote a couple articles back in my posting about how America should not remain neutral. I mentioned the disgust I had when the person leading the class stated that the reason Muslims hate us is because of our sanctions. He stated that only a few Muslims are "extremists." Basically, it was a "blame America's policies for why the Muslim world hates us" rant. Myself and at least one other person were in shock by what he said. I had decided after that disgrace that I would never attend another one of his "classes." Then yesterday's Ft. Hood slaughter happened. The animal screamed, "God is great," as he gunned down our soldiers.

An imam from a mosque Hasan regularly attended said Hasan, a lifelong Muslim, was a committed soldier, gave no sign of extremist beliefs and regularly wore his uniform at prayers.

For once, I believe them!

Anyone who has the guts to do some actual research will quickly find out that Islam is NOT a religion of peace. Indeed, it isn't much of a religion at all, but a system for world domination. Even a study of their "prophet's" life will show how he conquered by the sword, slaughtered innocents, raped a 9 year old girl... I can go on and on. If you really want to know what is happening, I have links to two sites on this blog. One of them is The Religion of Peace. The other is Jihad Watch. Just a reminder, who did the "Palestinians" vote into office? Hamas. If you have the guts to stop being politically correct, if you really want to know what is happening, view those websites. If not, then don't comment on something you know nothing about.

B.O. showed his usual disdain for America in a speech last night where he decided to give a "shout out" before addressing the disaster that happened yesterday. Truly, he is an evil man and MUST be removed from power - him and ALL of the cronies who support him. This includes that traitorous wench Pelosi who isn't even following her own promises about posting the bill 72 hours in advance of a vote - which will happen tomorrow for "health care."

I am tired of people who don't have the guts to stand up for what is right and true, even it if is "unpopular." Go crawl back into your caves, for all I care. You do not lead us.

To those who were personally affected by yesterday's tragic events, you have my heart felt condolences. I am truly sorry that this happened. I'm sorry that a man who played an advisory role concerning homeland security in B.O.'s transition to the White House followed his true faith.

The Troubled Patriot Update for November

An exciting event happened last month for this blog. An article I had written concerning the past history of dictatorship with references to the Obama Administration was referenced from World Net Daily and posted on American Daily as well. I wish to thank the editors of both sites for finding that article worthy of posting.

Since then the subscriber base (although still small) has doubled. It is my desire to continue it’s increase. As such, some articles will be submitted to other news sites before being posted here. That may mean a delay of a few days until I am able to post them. As there is “competition” from other experienced writers, I estimate that perhaps only 5-10 percent of the articles I write will be accepted. I will still post the ones which have been refused for your benefit as well as for my peace of mind.

Also, article posting to The Troubled Patriot will probably slow down to perhaps only one or two entries a week. The reason for this being increased research on the subject matter, and a desire for high quality writing.

I am still seeking the following:

  • Other conservative (I care not for party affiliation) authors/bloggers to contribute to The Troubled Patriot
  • Someone who is graphically inclined and would be willing to help design a logo for this site
  • Help in spreading the word of this blog's existence
  • A conservative publisher who would be willing to work with me on a book

If you are considering an article for submission, please follow these guidelines:

  • When writing an article, please include links/references to material supporting your arguments
  • Please do not use wiki's (such as wikipedia)
  • Please submit material in Microsoft Word's file format. Barring this, plain text in the body of the email will be considered

I don’t mind if your material (if well written) has been posted at other locations. I’m more then happy to help good writers gain attention. I know from personal experience that writing is quite a demanding job. I also realize that it is quite difficult to gain recognition. All that I ask is that if it has been posted elsewhere, please include links along with your article for reference.

To those of you who have chosen to subscribe to The Troubled Patriot, you have my heartfelt thanks and appreciation for your support. I ask that you continue to spread the word of it’s existence. I am in your debt!

If you would be willing to help or contribute towards the above mentioned goals, please contact me and let me know.
