GOVERNMENT ARROGANCE IS OUT OF CONTROL!

GOVERNMENT ARROGANCE IS OUT OF CONTROL!

Quotes:
Lyn Nofziger

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Sooner or later, it will have to be the American people themselves that decide to put a stop to this out-of-control government arrogance. Perhaps the sentiments of the late Lyn Nofziger will be helpful at this point.

You will recall that Mr. Nofziger served as press secretary in Ronald Reagan’s administration as Governor of California and as a White House advisor during the Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan presidencies.

Shortly before he passed away, he composed a short treatise entitled “These Things I Believe.â€
Here it is:

“That government should butt out.

That freedom is our most precious commodity and if we are not eternally vigilant, government will take it all away.

That individual freedom demands individual responsibility.

That government is not a necessary good but an unavoidable evil.

That the executive branch has grown too strong, the judicial branch too arrogant and the legislative branch too stupid.

That political parties have become close to meaningless.

That government should work to insure the rights of the individual, not plot to take them away.

That government should provide for the national defense and work to insure domestic tranquility.

That foreign trade should be fair rather than free.

That America should be wary of foreign entanglements.

That the tree of liberty needs to be watered from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

That guns do more than protect us from criminals; more importantly, they protect us from the ongoing threat of government.

That states are the bulwark of our freedom. That states should have the right to secede from the Union.

That once a year we should hang someone in government as an example to his fellows.â€

Patriots – Make History And Earn A Living! By Devvy Kidd

“Our Republic and its press (media) will rise or fall together. An able, disinterested, public-spirited press (media), with trained intelligence to know the right thing to do and the courage to do it, can preserve the public virtue, without which popular government is a sham and a mockery. A cynical, mercenary, demagogic press (media) will produce, in time, a people as base (rotten) as itself. The power to mould the future of the Republic will be in the hands of the journalism of future generations.” Joseph Pulitzer, American newspaper publisher.

How many newspapers today will cover the constitutional issue of Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, aka Barry Obama, aka Barack Dunham, aka Barry Dunham, regarding his eligibility to serve as president of these United States of America? A couple of newspapers east of the Mississippi have done so over the past week, but they did it kicking and screaming all the way. However, they have all slanted the coverage to portray it as being a negative issue, instead of the issue being of paramount importance: Does the U.S. Constitution matter anymore?

The Election Of The Greatest Con-Man In Recent History By James Petras

“I have a vision of Americans in their 80’s being wheeled to their offices and factories having lost their legs in imperial wars and their pensions to Wall Street speculators and with bitter memories of voting for a President who promised change, prosperity and peace and then appointed financial swindlers and war mongers.” — An itinerant Minister, 2008

Introduction

The entire political spectrum ranging from the ‘libertarian’ left, through the progressive editors of the Nation to the entire far right neo-con/Zionist war party and free market Berkeley/Chicago/Harvard academics, with a single voice, hailed the election of Barack Obama as a ‘historic moment’, a ‘turning point in American history and other such histrionics. For reasons completely foreign to the emotional ejaculations of his boosters, it is a historic moment: witness the abysmal gap between his ‘populist’ campaign demagoguery and his long-standing and deepening carnal relations with the most retrograde political figures, power brokers and billionaire real estate and financial backers.

What was evident from even a cursory analysis of his key campaign advisers and public commitments to Wall Street speculators, civilian militarists, zealous Zionists and corporate lawyers was hidden from the electorate, by Obama’s people friendly imagery and smooth, eloquent deliverance of a message of ‘hope’. He effectively gained the confidence, dollars and votes of tens of millions of voters by promising ‘change’ (implying higher taxes for the rich, ending the Iraq war and national health care reform) when in fact his campaign advisers (and subsequent strategic appointments) pointed to a continuation of the economic and military policies of the Bush Administration.

Within 3 weeks of his election he appointed all the political dregs who brought on the unending wars of the past two decades, the economic policy makers responsible for the financial crash and the deepening recession castigating tens of millions of Americans today and for the foreseeable future. We can affirm that the election of Obama does indeed mark a historic moment in American history: The victory of the greatest con man and his accomplices and backers in recent history.
He spoke to the workers and worked for their financial overlords.

Obama birth challenge refuted by SCOTUS Thomas Lifson

Thomas Lifson
Let me get this straight.  We are about to swear in a new President without checking his actual birth certificate — something many jobs require. Whatever you think about what the media call the “whispering campaign” about Barack Obama’s alleged failure to meet the Constitution’s “natural born citizen” requirement for the presidency, isn’t it a bit odd not to even check to see that the requirement has been met.

The Supreme Court just decided not to touch the issue in the Donofrio case : “The application for stay … is denied” and that is that.  And virtually everyone is much relieved about it.

Letters to Military Associations – File in US Federal Court Regarding Obama’s Citizenship

Captain XXXXX,

Sir, as a fellow vet, I know you fully understand the obligation we accept when we say the words, “to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.” As citizen soldiers, those words have special meaning to us. Our allegiance rises above party politics, a man or an institution. Our allegiance is to the US Constitution — that we “defend it against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” To that end, I have a CALL TO ACTION for the XXXXX XXXXXXX Association, action that will not be easy, yet required to ensure the Rule of Law stays intact.

Former US Senator Barack Obama has openly acknowledged that his father was a Kenyan (British) citizen and his mother was an American citizen. At birth in 1961, Barack Obama (Jr) was a dual-citizen – he has confirmed this fact himself. When Barack Obama, Jr, was born in Hawaii, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama, Sr was a British Citizen, whose status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr’s children.

For more than six years, Jesse Nieto drove to work at Camp Lejeune, N.C., in a car that left no doubt about his views.

“Islam = terrorism” asserted one sticker on the back window of his maroon Scion. Another decal showed a cartoon boy urinating on the image of a turban-wearing man. A third, paraphrased to eliminate a curse word, said, Disgrace my flag, and I will defecate on your Quran.

His feelings stem from a personal tragedy: His son died in a terrorist attack on the Norfolk-based destroyer Cole in Yemen in 2000.

Did Obama Buy The White House With Illegal Money?….”…but that’s a story you won’t read in the mainstream media. You will read about it here today…”

There is now growing evidence that Sen. Barack Obama bought the White House by using illegal and fraudulent fundraising, but that’s a story you won’t read in the mainstream media. You will read about it here today. While that story of Obama election law violations is still developing, what is the mainstream media reporting on? The New York Times isn’t interested in election fraud … if committed by Sen. Obama and the Democrats. So it is using its resources to investigate the amount of money the McCain campaign spent on hair stylists for Gov. Sarah Palin. (New York Times, Dec. 6, 2008). They’ve already investigated the amount spent on her wardrobe. Yes, the bias and dishonesty of the New York Times no longer just oozes out, it floods out in epic proportions. The once great paper has become a sad joke, a puppet and propagandist for the Democratic Party that can hardly write an honest word on politics.

Marine Called Back To Active Duty

Comments on role in intel thefts cited

By Rick Rogers, Staff Writer

CAMP PENDLETON – The Marine Corps is calling a serviceman back to active duty for talking publicly about helping to steal top-secret terrorism intelligence from Camp Pendleton, the service confirmed yesterday.

Lt. Gen. Samuel Helland, commander of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force, has taken the unusual step of requiring former Gunnery Sgt. Gary Maziarz to report to Camp Pendleton on suspicion of disobeying an order to not discuss his involvement in the theft ring.

On Wednesday, the Marine Corps sent Maziarz a certified letter telling him to turn himself in. He has three days to do so from receipt of the letter.

Obama, Birth Certificate, Constitution, Supreme Court – The Usurper’s New Clothes

Intro: Facts are so inconvenient to those brimming with intellectual dishonesty.

“I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. Let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” – Barry Goldwater

A favorite tactic of Communists, liberals and others on the left is using peer pressure-laced name-calling to try and marginalize those with whom they disagree. If they can successfully convince enough people that a particular viewpoint is held only by those on the fringes, as opposed to the mainstream, they believe they can successfully discredit that person as a crackpot.

They frequently brandish the labels Hitler, racist and extreme right-wing in their pathetic attempts to banish conservatives who believe in strict Constitutional interpretations to the extremities of the political spectrum. But, no matter how many people in this country –or elsewhere– attack my efforts to protect and defend my Constitution, unless and until President-Elect Obama produces his original vault birth certificate for public scrutiny, he will be little more than a usurper; an illegitimate and impotent poseur. And no amount of name-calling, taunts or questions of sanity, patriotism or intelligence will change that fact. Those tactics only work on the weak-minded and those without the courage of their convictions.

UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES By Geoff Metcalf

“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” –Benjamin Franklin

The Posse Comitatus Act is a 130-year old federal law specifically designed to restrict role of the military in domestic law enforcement. It was wise to create the law…it is dangerous to abrogate it.

We now hear the Pentagon anticipates having 20,000 uniformed troops inside the continental United States by 2011. Allegedly the purpose is to “help state and local officials,” specifically in the development of response to nuclear, biological or chemical terrorist attacks or other domestic catastrophe.

As evidenced by the Janet Reno massacre of the Branch Davidians, tactical deployment of military assets in law enforcement operations is a for real Pandora’s Box. The liberty verses safety challenge is a very slippery slope. It is easy to let the genie out of the bottle…getting him back IN is a bear.

This renewed push for homeland security emphasis is not without critics. Beyond various military and civil libertarian types, this is probably the worse possible time to even consider further overtaxing military assets (not that there ever is a good time).

Free Plaxico Burress: New York City’s gun law is unconstitutional

December 8, 2008 1 comment

Wall Street Journal, December 4, A17 ^ | 12/04/08 | David Kopel

Posted on Saturday, December 06, 2008 1:33:58 PM by Winged Hussar

New York Giants star receiver Plaxico Burress is facing a mandatory 3½ years in prison and the end of his football career. His crime? Not having a license, which New York City never would have issued him, for the exercise of his constitutional right to bear arms.

…And then there is the issue of the permitting process for residents. In 40 states, including Connecticut, law-abiding adults are issued permits once they pass a fingerprint-based background check and a safety class. In New Jersey, carry permits are virtually never issued. In New York City, carry permits are issued, but to applicants with some form of political clout rather than on the basis of his or her need for protection.

JERUSALEM – Claiming Barack Obama has roots in the Islamic religion, an Egyptian cleric has broadcast a plea urging Obama to convert to Islam while warning if the U.S. doesn’t withdraw its troops from the Middle East and provide aid to Muslims, those “eager for [death]” will attack America.
