THE SYMPTOM of WHAT AILS AMERICA….

June 19, 2010 7 comments

Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.”

“The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

Since the Mexican Independence from Spain in 1821, there has always been the question of who owned what in the west. Since invading the New World, Spain controlled a vast territory that included all of modern day Mexico all the way through California and Utah, not to mention Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico. Arguments go in many directions but the fact of the matter is that in 1846 President Polk called for the invasion of Mexico. It was a bloody war, based mostly on the principal of “Manifest Destiny” but was also based on the principal that Colonialism left a void of epic proportions in the west, and the areas that Spain once controlled were nothing more than a set of violent fiefdoms.

Obama: ‘America Will be Watching’ to See if GOP Will Cooperate (BARF Alert)
The Hill ^ | 6/19/2010 | Michael O’Brien

Posted on Saturday, June 19, 2010 12:54:00 PM by Qbert

President Barack Obama went on the attack against Republicans on Saturday, accusing the GOP of obstructing a litany of his legislative priorities in Congress.

The president struck a decidedly partisan note in his address, castigating Senate Republicans in particular for using their 41-vote bloc to slow down and filibuster a number of pieces of legislation.

"What we need is a willingness in Washington to put the public’s interests first – a willingness to score fewer political points so that we can start solving more problems," Obama said. "That’s why I was disappointed this week to see a dreary and familiar politics get in the way of our ability to move forward on a series of critical issues that have a direct impact on people’s lives."

“Is More Evidence On Obama’s Presidency Needed? “

June 19, 2010 Leave a comment

Hi Dick Gaines,

Minuteman26 has just written a new comment on "Is More Evidence On Obama’s Presidency Needed? [Reader Post]". Here an excerpt:

Received an intersesting e-mail yesterday that I believe to be accurate. In it it provides photocopies of a Kenyan birth certtificate for BHO which are documented and appear to be factual. It also states that our POTUS is a communist plant. Seems he may have spent a few years with the Russians in the early 90s being indoctrinated for the position he now holds. Would explain why so many commies now surround and advise him within the admininistration. Will forward if one of the site masters wants to provide me with an e-mail address. The plot thickens. Seems Obama’s goal is to help the Russians bring down this country.

Progressives Want “Direct Action” and a Disarmed Public

Progressive William Rivers Pitt has lost patience with the Obama regime and with British Petroleum (Enough of This Crap [1], June 15, Truthout). To break through the news blackout that BP maintains over the ongoing Gulf of Mexico oil spill, he wants a hundred thousand Americans to “just show the hell up down there and demand access.”

Pitt is correct that this “is the kind of direct action that has been missing from our national narrative, not just in the Gulf but all over.” Obama, he says correctly, is a “narcotic” for progressives. Apparently, for many progressives having a black man, or a 50% black man, in the White House is what is important, not the fact that he is a continuation of Bush/Cheney.

If a hundred thousand people marched on the Gulf Coast, “big things would happen.”

Pitt writes that “either the people would break through those unconscionable corporate barriers and show the world what is really going on in the Gulf, or the forces BP has arrayed against the truth would react with violence, which would tell us everything we need to know about what is happening, and would be enough to break that God damned criminal corporation finally and forever.”

Bill Randall, a North Carolina Republican candidate for Congress, is calling for a “thorough investigation” into whether President Barack Obama’s administration colluded with BP to allow the Gulf oil spill.

“There were procedures that were violated by BP that the federal government signed off on, safeguards that decades of engineering wherewithal and knowledge told them that this way the way to do it,” Randall told reporters earlier this week. “They intentionally bypassed that and the safety was compromised.”

Randall continued: “I’m not necessarily a conspiracy person, but I don’t think enough investigation has been done on this. Someone needs to be digging into that situation. Personally, and this is purely speculative on my part and not based on any fact, but personally I feel there is a possibility that there was some sort of collusion.”

Is DHS a criminal enterprise?

Child abuse, human and drug smuggling, bribery, money laundering… These are just some of the crimes committed by employees at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), as highlighted in a report issued by the DHS’ Office of Inspector General (OIG) in May.

From October 1, 2008 to September 30, 2009, the OIG reviewed 16,777 complaints from which the Inspector opened 1,056 cases, closing just over 1,021 of them. Of those cases, 283 arrests were made, 248 indictments handed down and 241 convictions were ruled.

“Our work on those cases resulted in apprehension of persons with known links to terrorism, detection of immigration fraud, and arrests for alien and drug smuggling, contract fraud, and civil rights violations,” the report read. “The cases also resulted in over $85 million in fines, restitutions, administrative cost savings, and recoveries.”

In his testimony before the Homeland Security Committee in March, Thomas Frost, the assistant inspector general for investigations at DHS, stated, “The DHS OIG has statutory authority and responsibility to conduct criminal investigations into allegations of employee misconduct within the DHS. We investigate 100% of all allegations of serious criminal misconduct involving DHS employees. We investigate all allegations of corruption of DHS employees related to the security of the nation’s borders including the smuggling of drugs, weapons, and people.

“The corruption activities of drug trafficking organizations are not limited to those employees such as customs inspectors and border patrol officers whose duties are posting and patrolling the physical border, but encompass almost every layer of the DHS border security strategy,” he continued.

“We have had investigations involving DHS employees who were posted away from the border but who were targeted for corruption because of their value in providing access to sensitive law enforcement information or their ability to convey immigration benefits or otherwise assist drug trafficking organizations in evading our enforcement efforts,” Frost added.

The report, which divided up the crimes based on which agency the employee who committed them was working for, held some shocking revelations. United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers were convicted of such crimes as alien and narcotic smuggling, bribery, providing fraudulent documents, sexual exploitation of a minor, credit card fraud and sending child pornography over the Web.

Obama Needs Applause [Narcissist-in-Chief]
Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government ^ | June 19, 2010 | Tim Slagle

Like most people I didn’t expect a lot from the President during his oval office speech. What I got was a whole new look at the Candidate in Chief.

The first thing I noticed during the speech: I had never seen such an empty desk before., It was so clear, you could see all the dents in the desk, from where the previous presidents actually did some work.

Much has been made about how President Obama didn’t really seem comfortable in the speech, that he looked more like a visiting college student who got to sit in the big chair for a couple minutes. It could explain why his poll numbers have dropped faster than a bowling ball out a campaign bus window.

It was also only a one tele-prompter speech. Usually he has a two tele-prompter setup so his head moves back and forth, like he’s watching a beer pong game.

It was highly uncomfortable to watch. His eyes were locked on the teleprompter, and his hands never stopped moving. You weren’t even sure the guy reading, was the same guy who was moving the hands. It was almost like watching the cookie monster give an oval office address.

I look at it a different way: from a comedian’s perspective. I’ve played some fairly hostile crowds during my years on the road. But the one kind of crowd I cannot tolerate is a small one. I think most comics will agree that one of the most terrifying places you can perform is to an empty room. (Of course since I’ve become big and famous, that rarely happens to me anymore.)

Every comic needs an audience. Those few minutes we’re on stage are the highlight of our week. It is the only time we feel alive, the only time we’re not consumed with self-doubt. Comics are narcissists. Comedy is much less a talent than a personality disorder. You wouldn’t see a lot of comics performing if there were a way that you could get self-worth out of a bottle—oh wait a minute, I think there is; and a lot of us do that as well.

SOME ‘Gunny G’ NOTES ON MARINE CORPS HISTORY, POLITICS, INTER-SERVICE RELATIONS, ETC.

“For your information the Marine Corps is the Navy’s police force and as long as I am President that is what it will remain. They have a propaganda machine that is almost equal to Stalin’s.”
-President Harry S. Truman, 1950
Ref
http://www.trumanlibrary.org/trumanpapers/pppus/1950/235.htm

How many times have we heard and read references and allusions made as to the insatiable desire of  the Marines for publicity. Marines usually just shrug this off, deny or ignore it, or sometimes attempt to explain away this accusation. Too often we just look upon things of this nature assuming it to be just a case of professional jealousy, etc. But many of us may be unaware of certain facts relating to this particular controversy. Can this be something more than just simple inter-service rivalry? When did it begin? Under what circumstances? Is there any basis to this accusation?

The origin of this squabble dates back to the days of the World War. Fortunately, the history of the Marine Corps in WW I is well documented, and the answers to the above questions are available to us. To begin with, General Pershing, and generally the rest of the U.S. Army, did not want the Marines involved in the AEF in Europe at all. The Major General Commandant, George Barnett, however, was determined that a Marine expeditionary force would become part of the AEF.

Marines had long been the chosen instrument of the U.S. State Department for use in trouble spots around the globe, serving both Corps and country well. As a result of their performance, Marines had gained the attention, interest, and respect of the American public. The often used headline of the media, “The Marines have landed and the situation is well in hand,” had long since become a familiar term and well-known to all. The Commandant, it seems, was well-connected politically, and he was able to convince those at the highest  levels of government of the need for Marines in the coming war. War against Germany was declared on 6 April, 1917. On 29 May, President Wilson approved the sending of a Marine regiment equipped as infantry. Later, another Marine regiment and other units, was authorized. The Marines’ slogan, “First To Fight,” was to be upheld.

General Pershing, learning of this was much chagrined, “speechless” as one writer puts it. Pershing then attempted to reverse the situation but he was unsuccessful. When it was suggested that Pershing could not provide transportation to Europe for the Marines, they arranged for their own transportation; when the supply system could not provide for the replacement of Marine uniforms and equipment, the Marines agreed to wear Army uniforms. Although the Marine Corps already had regiments prior to the World War, their composition in both organization and number was different from the Army’s, therefore numerous changes were quickly needed, and this accomplished. Whatever argument the Army managed to come up with, it was swiftly countered and overcome by the Marines.

Is Amphibious Warfare Obsolete?

Is Amphibious Warfare Obsolete?
Belmont Club ^ | June 18, 2010 | Richard Fernandez

Posted on Saturday, June 19, 2010 9:21:58 AM by decimon

When Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal watched the Marines raise the flag over Mount Surabachi he turned to General Holland Smith and said, “Holland, the raising of that flag on Suribachi means a Marine Corps for the next five hundred years.” Recent articles describing the demise of the amphibious mission suggest Forrestal may have been off by more than four centuries. Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates recently addressed the Navy League Sea-Air-Space Exposition on May 10 to lay out his vision of Naval warfare and seemed to suggest that amphibious warfare, if not obsolete, was no longer central. Loren Thompson at Lexington Institute sat up and noted that “policymakers are openly questioning the relevance of amphibious warfare to future strategy, and trying to water down the requirements of “forcible entry” — capabilities that are at the core of the modern Marine identity.”

What the sneaky left has really been doing to America
Astonishing story of how socialists have taken control of the greatest nation on earth


Posted: June 07, 2010

WorldNetDaily

Sometime during the last half-century, America – the most magnificent and prosperous nation in the world – was stolen, according to June’s special issue of Whistleblower magazine.

“Just 50 years ago, in the 1950s, America was a great place,” writes author William Lind in the issue, titled “STEALTH ATTACK.” “It was safe. It was decent. Children got good educations in the public schools. Even blue-collar fathers brought home middle-class incomes, so moms could stay home with the kids. Television shows reflected sound, traditional values.

“Where did it all go? How did that America become the sleazy, decadent place we live in today – so different that those who grew up prior to the ’60s feel like it’s a foreign country? Did it just ‘happen’?

“It didn’t just ‘happen,'” Lind explains. “In fact, a deliberate agenda was followed to steal our culture and leave a new and very different one in its place. The story of how and why is one of the most important parts of our nation’s history – and it is a story almost no one knows. The people behind it wanted it that way.”

Cover of June 2010  Whistleblower

Indeed, today in the age of Obama, millions of Americans are “waking up” to the stealth infiltration and subversion of their beloved country and are appalled at what they see: Not only is their government in the hands of the left, but virtually all of our nation’s major institutions – from the public education system to our colleges and universities, from the news media to the entertainment industry, from the unions to our major philanthropic foundations, even many of our churches – have also been captivated by this same destructive ideology.

The incredible but true story of how all this happened is laid out as perhaps never before in the June issue of Whistleblower, titled “STEALTH ATTACK: How the Left took control of America piece by piece – schools, media, churches, and now government.

Sarah Palin not only thinks Arizona’s anti-illegal immigration law is a great idea, she thinks everyone should do it.

The ex-Alaskan governor wants to see other states along the Mexican border adopt similar laws.

"Every other state on the border should emulate what Arizona has done," Palin said during an interview on Fox News Business.

"You’re going to see something spectacular," an old friend who has a knack for black-bag operations said as he proudly downed his vodka. "About a month from now you’ll see ACORN explode from within." Right on schedule a video was released that showed undercover conservative activists James O’Keefe and Hannah.

That’s when I realized this isn’t an average fringe movement. This one is credible, legit and—for the first time in a decade—scaring the crap out of the left.

The cynical among us think it’s a group of peasants with pitchforks controlled by an underground cabal of Glenn Beck, wealthy donors and the guys who killed JFK. But the worst thing I can say about the Tea Party I work for is that it can make lots of noise but can’t win without professional help.

This cause is worthier and more real than anything I’ve done in the past. I’m all in. When I met the colorful characters behind the organization, I was really all in.

None of them were prom king, none went to college east of the Appalachians (even the Jews), and a lot of them smoke a pack a day just because they’re not supposed to. Unlike most of the tired, airbrushed conservatives living in D.C., the homegrown activists I work with are the real deal.

It uses unconventional methods to get our message out and support grassroots conservatives: "Ensuring Liberty’s relationships run deep into the new media and use of cloud computing and innovation along with the black arts of campaign management.

The Kenyan bowed his head as his captors opened the prison cell door to deliver another brutal whipping – a punishment meted out after he was accused of taking part in the independence movement against the British colonial authorities. The man had been working as a cook for a British Army officer. And his name? Hussein Onyango Obama – President Barack Obama’s paternal grandfather. He had been arrested in 1949 and jailed for two years in a high-security prison. There, according to his family, he was subjected to horrific violence. They say British soldiers used torture in an effort to get him to reveal rebel secrets.

With pictures of oil-drenched birds, blackened beaches, and marshlands invaded with oil streaming across our televisions every day, it is easy to become angry and demand retribution from the cause of the disaster. Unfortunately, it is also easy for unscrupulous politicians to take that anger and turn it to their political advantage. History is replete with incidents of real popular anger leading to monstrous outcomes of tyranny. Yesterday the USA wrote a new anecdote in that awful book.

There is no doubt that the oil spill produced by the Deepwater Horizon rig and BP is a disaster of monumental ecological proportions. There is no doubt that the spill has caused the loss of livelihood for fishermen, hotel owners, beach surfboard renters, and millions of other people on the gulf coast. There is also no doubt that it is BPs responsibility to get the well shut off and pay for the cleanup. There is also no doubt that a full investigation should be conducted into how the spill happened, the role of BP and of the government in it, and the mistakes made in the cleanup. We should find out what caused the blowout, how it could have been prevented, why the cleanup was so slow in getting started, why foreign experts were not allowed to help, why the EPA is blocking applications of products as simple as hay which could soak up oil, and why Governor Jindal and others were disallowed the means to protect their shorelines by government bureaucracies.
