The aerial photograph does not lie. Glenn Beck‘s Restoring Honor Rally drew just about as many people as any other rally ever held at the Lincoln Memorial.I took the train into town from home in Northern Virginia, packed in like in those Tokyo subway video clips, even though I was late. I marched down to the Memorial from the nearest subway stop at Foggy Bottom, where the D.C. bureaucrats had helpfully disabled the steep escalators from the underground tubes to greet the half a million or more celebrants of liberty on the way in.
From my perspective on the ground, arriving late at about 11:15 the rally started at 10, I could never get close enough to the podium even to see. But I could hear. And that was all I needed.On his radio and TV shows, Beck has emphasized economics, political history, and near libertarian political philosophy. He has previously indicated his personal belief in God. But in this speech, he revealed a vision that encompasses the whole Reagan coalition from 1980.
Beck tutored me once again with his insight that the founders grew up in an America where the evangelist George Whitefield crisscrossed the colonies inspiring a national religious revival, that they probably personally heard or read Whitefield sermons, and that this foundation informed their work in later founding America…

AMERICA IN PERIL: A CONTINUING REPORT ON THE COUP D’ETAT BY THE DEMOCRAT PARTY (via ~ The GUNNY “G” BLOG & E-MAIL ~)
- Continuity of Government: Coup d’Etat Authoity in America
By Stephen Lendman
- This article reviews the historical roots and America’s current Continuity of Government authority, initially planned and developed by Ronald Reagan. More on that below.
- On March 1, 2002, Washington Post writers Barton Gellman and Susan Schmidt headlined, “Shadow Government Is at Work in Secret,” saying:
- “President Bush has dispatched a shadow government of about 100 senior civilian managers to live and work secretly outside Washington, activating for the first time longstanding plans to ensure survival of federal rule after a catastrophic attack on the nation’s capital.”
- Shortly after 9/11, a classified “Continuity of Operations Plan” (aka “continuity of government”) was implemented. Legal documents were then drafted, creating a shadow government in case of a catastrophe, George Bush saying:
- “We take the continuity of government issue seriously because our nation was under attack. Until this country has routed out terrorists wherever they hid, we’re not safe.”
- In other words, the plan, like the “war on terror,” is open-ended, in violation of the Constitution’s Separation of Powers, the document George Bush called “just a goddamn piece of paper,” and governed accordingly throughout his tenure, a practice Obama continues. More on that below.
- On April 4, 2007, the Bush administration issued a combined White House/Department of Homeland Security (DHS) National Security/Homeland Security Presidential Directive NSPD 51/HSPD 20, extending for one year the 9/11 emergency for the sixth time, and establishing Continuity of Government (COG) procedures under Catastrophic Emergency conditions, defined as:
- “any incident (such as a terrorist attack), regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the US population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions.”
- COG is then defined as:
- “a coordinated effort within the Federal Government’s executive branch to ensure that National Essential Functions continue to be performed during a Catastrophic Emergency.”
- The combined directive gave the president and DHS unprecedented police state powers to declare martial law without congressional approval, and be able to rule extrajudicially, free from constitutional constrains. It also let the vice-president assume dictatorial powers, George Bush left a figurehead by clever wording, saying:
- NSPD 51 “shall be implemented in a manner that is consistent with, and facilitates effective implementation of, provisions of the Constitution concerning succession to the Presidency or the exercise of its powers, and the Presidential Succession Act of 1947 (3 U.S.C. 19), with consultation of the Vice President and, as appropriate, others involved. Heads of executive departments and agencies shall ensure that appropriate support is available to the Vice President and others involved as necessary to be prepared at all times to implement those provisions.”
- Related to this was Dick Cheney‘s 2005 “Contingency Plan” in case of another 9/11 type attack, authorizing preemptive measures, including war, against suspected terrorists, individuals and/or sponsor states, depending on who’s designated.
- COG authority is renewed annually. Thus, on September 10, 2009, the White House extended the Bush administration’s 9/11 national emergency, a press release saying:
- “CONTINUATION OF THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY WITH RESPECT TO CERTAIN TERRORIST ATTACKS
- Consistent with sections 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1622(d), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency declared on September 14, 2001, in Proclamation 7463, with respect to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and the continuing and immediate threat of further attacks on the United States.

Politics: The defeat of Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski by a little-known conservative lawyer is the latest evidence of a tidal wave building that may sweep aside an out-of-touch establishment.
“We the people” won’t be ignored.Shays’ Rebellion, an uprising of 1,200 farmers led by one Daniel Shays, angry over conditions in Massachusetts in 1786, prompted Thomas Jefferson to write to James Madison that “a little rebellion now and then is a good thing” for America.
A more peaceful rebellion is now occurring across the country, and we believe it’s a good thing for America. Considering the excesses of this administration and Congress and their abuse of power to the point of ignoring the Constitution itself, it’s also a very necessary thing, an idea whose time has come.
With her concession, Sen. Murkowski became the third incumbent to bite the political dust this season, joining Utah Sen. Bob Bennett and Pennsylvania party switcher Arlen Specter. The old argument about seniority and influence no longer flies among voters who increasingly believe, as Jefferson did, that government is best which governs least.Joe Miller, a 43-year-old Yale-educated lawyer, West Point graduate and Gulf War veteran, was a little-known Fairbanks attorney before he was endorsed by Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Express.
The former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate, who knows a little about shaking up the establishment, has become a political power, riding and leading a wave of political discontent with the country’s current direction that manifested itself last Saturday at Glenn Beck‘s “Restore Honor” rally on the National Mall. Palin is woman, hear her roar.
Professor Obama is looking to grade you on your car-buying preferences. Beginning with the 2012 model year, new vehicles will carry revised window stickers bearing ratings from “A+” to “D,” with the highest marks reserved for choices the administration endorses and the lowest for those it frowns upon.
This is just the latest example of the nanny state mentality that has taken hold inside the Beltway.
This tactic requires only two main elements: Inculcating a target with a sense of victimization and presenting a tonic in the form of a saviour.
Unfortunately, for our society, it has some dark implications
Limbaugh in particular must cease his innuendos and say, flat out, whether he believes the President is a Muslim or not.
Yes or no. Does he have evidence, or does he have none? Yes or no. To do anything less at this troubled time in our history would be a crime againstExcerpt Read more at newsbusters.org …
Then it turned into a rally to reclaim the Civil Rights movement, and give it back to the people who Beck swears pioneered the Civil Rights movement, right wing conservatives. Yes, that’s what Beck actually claims to believe. Leave it to Glenn Beck to make white-hating black columnist Leonard Pitts look sane and reasonable.
It also has something do with honoring all those unsung heroes of the American Revolution, the numerous black Founding Fathers, whose existence until Beck came along to set the record straight has been covered up by “liberals” who are trying to divide us by race. Yes, Beck actually says this, too.And Palin? She was asked what Martin Luther King would’ve thought of the rally. This was a great opportunity to tell it like it is for all of America to hear.
She could’ve said something like: “Martin Luther King? I’m white – why would I give a damn what Martin Luther King would’ve thought about this rally? At any rate, he no doubt would have disapproved, as he was a radical left wing socialist whose movement was all about increasing the size and power of the federal government, and using it to take rights and resources from white people and give them to non-whites. Hell no he wouldn’t have approved, and I couldn’t be more proud of that fact.
”But did she say anything like that? Of course not. Instead, she talked about how she could “feel his spirit” in this place that MLK’s presence had turned into “sacred ground” and that he would’ve heartily approved because the rally was all about “equality”, which is what he stood for. And “conservative” National Review was so proud of her words they posted the video.

The problem with the American media is that it doesn’t speak to Americans. That’s why FOX News is successful, and CNN is in the basement. Network news exists underwritten by medication and mutual fund commercials, and even so it’s losing money. ABC News is making severe cutbacks even while cutting Amanpour a 2 million dollar paycheck for a show hardly anyone watches anymore. And despite investing in a splashy media rollout for the Amanpour branded This Week, she finished a distant third, well behind Meet the Press. While viewers normally tune in to see a new host, the addition of Amanpour couldn’t even compete with CBS or NBC’s own similarly decaying programs on the day of her own debut.
What legitimate religion would demand that its members either kill or convert people of other faiths? What legitimate religion is intent on imposing its own laws on the rest of the entire world? If Islam were just about praying to Allah and worshiping Mohammed and nothing more, we would not be having a problem with Islamism and Islamic terrorists. Islam has a global mission to take over and run the world according to Islamic Shariah law. How can we call that a religion?
What legitimate religion in this country comes with its own civil laws that take precedence over national, state, and local laws? No, Islam is not a religion. It is a governing doctrine that not only dictates religious beliefs, but also social behavior that includes laws, penalties and punishments, not by God, but by people if the laws are not obeyed. Islam is a form of government, not a religion. It does not belong here. We already have government under our Constitution sort of.As Muslims build their mega-Mosques in our nation – financed by Saudi Arabia – they laugh at the stupid Americans who are selling out their fellow citizens by allowing Islam to take over our country a little bit at a time. It is the same method used over decades by the Marxist Progressives who now have control of our government – take away our liberties one little piece at a time until full control and submission is achieved.
The only evidence for Obama’s Christianity is that he faithfully attended the Rev. Jeremiah Wright‘s Trinity United Church of Christ for 20 years.Yes, the guy bellowing “God damn America!” is the one vouching for Obama’s Christianity. That’s like saying you got sober with the help of your A.A. sponsor Lindsay Lohan.
It is a fact that any non-retarded person thank you, Rahm Emanuel! sitting in the Rev. Wright’s church for 20 minutes, much less 20 years, does not believe in God. Even stepping inside Wright’s church for a moment to get out of the rain is borderline racist.Going to Trinity United Church of Christ is even stronger evidence of nonbelief than Bill Clinton returning from Sunday services to receive oral sex from Monica Lewinsky. This isn’t mere sin — everybody sins though some with more frequency and less remorse than others.
Attending Wright’s church is the conscious, calculated decision to immerse yourself in hate-filled demagoguery and call it “Christianity.
“But according to North Korean TV’s Chris Matthews, it is a provable, scientific fact that Obama is a Christian because he says so. “Everybody watching right now,” Matthews said to his several viewers last week, “gets credit for being of the religion you say you are. … We accept that in America. It’s called freedom of religion and respect for religion.”That would make professions of religious belief, unlike all other self-professions, unchallengeable. Liberals say conservatives don’t believe in civil rights. I say liberals are godless traitors.
Why is one statement debatable and the other not?Doesn’t anyone question the Christianity of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker? How about the Satanists claiming to be Christians who stand outside soldiers’ funerals with signs that say “God Hates Fags”?And, for the record, the allegedly inviolate assertion of one’s own religious belief wasn’t so inviolate when it came to Ronald Reagan.Tip O’Neill used to question President Reagan’s Christianity all the time, taunting the president for not attending church regularly. Matthews might remember that: He was working for O’Neill at the time.
In fact, parading to church in front of the TV cameras carrying a 10-pound Bible — like a certain serial adulterer, impeached president I could name — is strongly discouraged by the creator of the universe. “Beware of practicing your righteousness before men to be noticed by them; otherwise you have no reward with your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 6.1

 Plot summary
The book reflects the author’s evolving philosophy by clarifying concepts in the previous novel which the protagonist supposedly misunderstood. It resolves the problem of Ishmael dying at the end of the earlier work by explaining that this was all part of an elaborate plot to allow the gorilla to finally return to Africa, where he can live the natural life that he has taught to his disciples.
 Current Events
On September 1, 2010, a man named Jason Lee took a hostage at the headquarters of The Discovery Channel in Silver Spring, Maryland. Lee’s demands, in part, were based on My Ishmael: “The Discovery Channel and it’s affiliate channels MUST have daily television programs at prime time slots based on Daniel Quinn’s “My Ishmael” pages 207-212 where solutions to save the planet would be done in the same way as the Industrial Revolution was done.” (http://www.abc26.com/entertainment/sns-ap-us-discovery-channel-gunman,0,6693235.story)

U.S. Government Prepares for ‘Crisis’
By Jeff Nielson
August 30, 2010 “The Street” — 08/26/10 – — Most market reporters, commentators and politicians continue to rely upon nothing but the same short-term “snapshots” which have caused them to be “surprised” by everything. However, it is a safe conclusion that even such rampant incompetence (combined with a strong “herd mentality”), could not and does not mean that the entire U.S. government remains in an oblivious state of ignorance regarding this re-acceleration of the collapse of the U.S. economy.
This begs an obvious question. Given that at least some elements of the U.S. government have known all along that the U.S. economy was not recovering and could not recover, why is it that only now are we hearing of tentative, new plans of more “life support” for the dying U.S. economy?
The answer is also obvious. As I pointed out when I originally denounced the Obama stimulus package, it was never anything more than a bad joke. The combination of the collapse of the U.S. housing sector, massive unemployment, and the largest credit-contraction in the history of the U.S. economy had combined to subtract approximately $2 trillion per year in consumer spending from this consumer economy.
The response of the Obama regime to this scenario was a one-time injection of $780 in stimulus, spread out over more than a year. Obviously, you can’t replace $2 trillion with less than $800 billion and call it stimulus.
This brings us to the present dilemma of the U.S. government. The U.S. economy is much sicker than it was when Obama ascended the throne. Wall Street has continued to ruthlessly choke off all credit to the U.S. economy, meaning that tens of millions of American households and tens of thousands of businesses are much closer to the breaking point than they were in January of 2009.
The entire U.S. retail sector is in a terminal death-spiral, and its only response is to eliminate vast numbers of retail outlets, and herd consumers into more online retailing. While this cuts costs for these companies, most of those cuts will be reduced employment — fueling the next leg lower for consumer demand, resulting in even more store closures, etc.
Rep. Ron Paul R-Texas will be attending the San Francisco rally in support of Republican candidate John Dennis, who faces a formidable and well-funded opponent in California’s 8th District – House Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy Pelosi .
Former S.F. supervisor and Ralph NaderRalph Nader’s 2008 vice presidential candidate Matt Gonzalez will also be in attendance, urging voters to turn out Pelosi in exchange for representation from the anti-war Republican candidate.
Gonzalez, running on the Green Party ticket, narrowly lost the 2003 S.F. mayoral race to Gavin NewsomGavin Newsom.The rally begins at 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 4, at the San Francisco Civic Center at Polk and McAllister, with doors opening at 1 p.m. The free event, dubbed “Principles over Parties: Ending Washington’s War on Us” is being presented by Campaign for Liberty and Young Americans for Liberty.
The speakers are expected to focus on anti-war, pro-liberty, Free Speech issues.Although Pelosi – San Francisco’s representative since 1987 — would have to be considered the favorite in this race, former House Speaker Tom FoleyTom Foley D-Washington was considered the favorite in Seattle in 1994. He was dethroned by Republican GeorgeGeorge Nethercutt that year as voters rejected congressional Democrats and handed legislative control to the GOP in both the House and the Senate.
Given the strong anti-war sentiment in San Francisco and Pelosi’s continued doubletalk about the wars, the more voters learn about Dennis, the more likelihood of an upset. Pelosi angered many of her constituents – maybe even most of them – when she refused to consider impeachment proceedings or even a meaningful ethics investigation of then-president George W. BushBush in the lead-up to the Democrats winning control of the House in 2006.
Hey Nashville! Where’s the birth certificate?Latest eligibility billboard goes up in country music capitalPosted: August 27, 20101:30 am Eastern© 2010 WorldNetDailyNASHVILLE – There’s a new billboard in the capital of country music – and it’s not promoting the Grand Ole Opry.It asks simply, “Where’s the birth certificate?”
And, with the latest polls showing 58 percent of Americans skeptical about Barack Obama‘s constitutional eligibility for office, it’s the latest in a campaign by WND founder and Chief Executive Officer Joseph Farah‘s campaign to make Barack Obama prove it.Billboard near Panama City, Fla.Billboard in Nashville, Tenn.The latest billboard is at 5000 Harding Place, right next to J.

Breitbart.tvWednesday, September 1, 2010Despite President Obama’s willingness to meet with leaders of Iran, Venezuela and North Korea, he still seems reluctant to discuss important issues with the Governor of Arizona.
CNS NewsWednesday, September 1, 2010CNSNews.com –
Sheriff Larry Dever, whose officers patrol Cochise County along the border between Arizona and Mexico, said he finds it “amazing” that the U.S. State Department would refer the recently passed immigration law in his state to the United Nations Human Rights Council for review.
“Well, it’s just amazing to me,” Dever told CNSNews.com. “Course, I have about as much regard for the U.N. as I do the vermin that hides in the rocks around my house here and reaches out and tries to bite me every now and then.”The Bush administration refused to join the U.N. Human Rights Council, citing lax membership criteria that allowed countries with poor human rights records to sit on the council, including countries such as China, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Russia, Cuba, Pakistan, Tunisia and Egypt.
The thing about having a lawyer as president is he or she, if unscrupulous, will manipulate the law according to his or her own personal philosophy instead of upholding original intent of the law. Why because legal training teaches them all things are relative and values have no meaning.
That’s why the president says the things he does about America and the constitution to which Americans scratch their heads in disbelieve and say, “I can’t believe he just said that!”Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton are classic exemplars of this type of thinking. The Clintons known for the philosophy of “The Third Way” meaning not only was there a right and wrong or black and white but there was a third way that was equally as viable as the other two alternatives.
The Clintons were always parsing language and meaning because if words have no real intended meaning then one can, as they often did, arrive at any personal conclusion all depending on what you are will to accept the meaning of is—is.
Therefore, the Constitution is what a judge says it is, not what it was meant to be. That’s why Justice Elena Kagan was selected Nevertheless, we’ll talk about that in a moment.The latest assault on reason and constitutionality is the Barry Hussein Soetoro covert amnesty initiative. see story here and here
One journalist wandered around the scene after the crowds had left. He found not a single piece of trash in the huge, close-to-one-mile-long area previously occupied by Beck’s giant audience. All he found was a faded piece of paper that had obviously been there before the crowd arrived. That in itself borders on the miraculous.
One must be forgiven for feeling a little giddy over the media’s disappointment but there is little time for that. Having done everything in their power to discourage the public from paying any attention to Beck’s crusade last Saturday, they now turn to flat out lying about what occurred and savaging such personalities associated with the event such as Dr. King’s niece whose own father, like her uncle, died as a victim of the struggle for equal justice for all, black and white.
And desperate people do desperate things.
It won’t work, Glenn Beck didn’t light a blazing fire of reborn patriotism, it was already there and growing, but he sure fanned the flames. And those flames are not going to turn into embers until the cleansing fire has burned away all the litter left behind by a generation of cynical left-wing demagogues.
The Yanks aren’t coming. They’re here. To stay.
Dear Brethren (hundreds bcc herein),
Please note the date of this communiqué (below & herein)- 14 AUGUST 2009- 2009.
It was sent to me by the Confederate Society of America‘s Florida representative- Chris Case.
PLEASE read it and learn more of that History that the Federal’s have Denied & Hidden from YOU.
Perhaps the day is finally arriving wherein MANY will come to their senses and realize why they, theirs and this country, is in the most dangerous dilemma it has ever been in?
It has been taken from YOU by the very Federal Government that YOU have blindly given YOUR allegiance to.
As I have stated for sometime, THEIR (Federals) subterfuge officially began after April, 1865 when the then only hope for the perpetuation of a Constitutional Republic was defeated- The Confederate States of America.
Since then, the Federal’s have have re-invented themselves and re-cast this country in THEIR image using THEIR ideology, the public treasury & social entitlement to create the foundation for the lofty mantle they now sit upon.
They ‘Reconstructed’ this entire country, beginning with the South, and continuously “Transforming” it ever since into the Socialist Democracy it has become today.
Anyone believing or hoping that the current two-party system (Republic rats) can or will ‘Return’ us to a Constitutional Republic is living a pipe dream.
As EVIDENCED below, it’s OVER, and has been OVER, sadly, for sometime.
But it is NOT too late.
THE HARDEST DECISION OF MY LIFE By Chuck BaldwinSeptember 1, 2010NewsWithViews.comLast Sunday, August 29, 2010, was the hardest day of my life. Even when my father made me promise that I would preach his funeral which I did–twice: once in Indiana where he lived, and again in Florida where I live and where he is buried, that was not as difficult and gut wrenching as what I had to do last Sunday.
Last Sunday, I retired as the pastor of the church that my wife and I founded 35 years ago: the Crossroad Baptist Church of Pensacola, Florida.Think of it: all of my adult life after college has been spent pastoring this wonderful congregation. And the people that I spoke to this past Sunday evening are, without a doubt, the finest group of people I have ever known. They are my friends. Many of them I had led to Christ, or were saved under my preaching. Some have stood with me for twenty years; some for over thirty years. My vocabulary is too limited to express the love and appreciation I have for these wonderful people! They stood by me through thick and thin. Even when God opened the door for me to run for President of the United States on the Constitution Party ticket, they stood by me. They stood by me when enemies attacked me; they stood by me when friends forsook me.And last Sunday evening, I had to tell them that, after 35 years as their shepherd, God had led me to leave them.
I can tell you, tears flowed like rivers; and I believe my family and I cried more than anyone.

The ubiquitous prayers broadcast from mosques nationwide during Ramadan usually fade into the background for those not inclined to join in them. Until one day they don’t.An American expatriate living in Lombok for 15 years apparently reached the end of his rope on Aug. 22, when police say he barged into a late-night prayer session with his shoes on, unplugged a microphone and may have even hit one of the worshippers.Police and witnesses said he was lucky to escape with his life as enraged worshippers chased him, then ransacked his house.Luke Gregory Lloyd, 64, escaped a beating but is being held by police on suspicion of blasphemy and violating his visa, the deputy chief of the Central Lombok Police, Comr. Lalu Mahsun, said on Monday.
“This man really angered residents of Kuta village in Pujut, Central Lombok,” Mahsun said.“On the night of August 22 he stormed into a musholla [prayer facility] and berated locals who were performing the Tadarus,” the traditional reading of the Koran that goes late into the night following special 9 p.m. Ramadan prayers.“He entered with his shoes on and then unplugged the microphone used by locals to recite the Koran,” Mahsun said.
“We believe he even hit one of the worshippers because, according to him, they had interrupted his sleep.”Mahsun said the local religious affairs office would need to decide whether Lloyd had committed blasphemy, which is illegal. If officially named a blasphemy suspect, he will face further questioning.

While British Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne frets over spending £148 on a fish and chips lunch with the Governor of the Bank of England, Barack Obama has no qualms about requesting an expensive revamp of the Oval Office when the US federal deficit is approaching a staggering $1.3 trillion and unemployment hovers at just under ten percent.
The Wall Street Journal has outlined some of the chic decorative changes at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue:Handmade striped wallpaper manufactured in Amagansett, N.Y., with trim painted in American-made Benjamin Moore. Obama’s decorating team reupholstered in caramel-colored leather the two mahogany arm-chairs that Bush had placed in front of the fireplace. Obama still uses the famous Resolute Desk favored by some of his predecessors, but got a new leather desk chair and a new American walnut coffee table.
Both were made in New York State, as were two blue ceramic table lamps.The new couches were custom-made in New York, but the fabric – light brown cotton with red, white and blue threads running through it – came from Pennsylvania. Maybe it’s coincidence, but New York has 31 electoral votes. Pennsylvania has 21.I’ve written previously that the Obama administration increasingly resembles a modern-day Ancien Régime with an extravagance and arrogance on display among the White House elites that rule America as though they had been handed some divine right to govern with impunity.The government insists that the renovations will be paid for by the White House Historical Association, with funds from the Presidential Inaugural Committee, rather than taxpayers’ money, though no actual cost amounts are given.Excerpt Read more at blogs.telegraph.co.uk …
Retired Air Force Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney has supplied an affidavit in support of Army Lieutenant Colonel Terrence Lakin, who faces trial on October 13-15. The retired Air Force three-star is the highest ranking officer yet to lend public support to LTC Lakin.
His affidavit acknowledges widespread concerns over the President‘s Constitutional eligibility and demands the President release his birth records or the court authorize discovery.McInerney’s sworn affidavit was filed in Court-Martial in support of Lakin’s motions for subpoenas for all of the president’s school records, and for a deposition of the custodian of Obama’s birth records in the possession of the State of Hawaii. The Judge has set a hearing in the Court Martial on these motions for this coming Thursday, September 2nd at 11:00 at Ft. Meade, Maryland.
All court proceedings are open to the public. The courthouse is located within Ft. Meade at 4432 Llewellyn Avenue, which is on the corner of Llewellyn and Ernie Pyle Road. At the first intersection after the Reece Road gate, you should turn left on to Ernie Pyle Road. The courthouse is approximately 1 mile south of the intersection of Reece Road and Ernie Pyle Road.LTC Lakin is a physician, and is in his 18th year of service in the Army. He is Board Certified in Family Medicine and Occupational and Environmental Medicine. He has been recognized for his outstanding service as a flight surgeon for year-long tours in Honduras, Bosnia and Afghanistan. He was also awarded the Bronze Star for his service in Afghanistan and recognized in 2005 as one of the Army Medical Department’s outstanding flight surgeons.
In March of this year, he announced in a video posted on YouTube that he would refuse to obey orders until receiving proof of the President’s eligibility.Excerpt Read more at safeguardourconstitution.com ..
The changes were basically undetectable, that is, until the start of the Second American Revolution. From the start of that revolution America began to change – rapidly – openly – ruthlessly. From the free, prosperous nation we once were, America is today drowning in a sea of rules and regulations.
Every aspect of our lives have become controlled by government edicts and intervention. From a mere trickle those government controls became a flood – until finally, today, the Republic of our founders is literally unrecognizable.When did such a drastic change take place? Who perpetrated it? How did they pull it off before our very eyes? Winston Churchill once said, “If you don’t look facts in the face, they have a way of stabbing you in the back.”
Other presidents have been wrong. Other presidents have been misguided. Other presidents have been weak and pusillanimous and pathetic.
Only one truly disdains America. His name is Barack Obama.
How else to explain his latest outrage against the country that elevated him to the ranks of world leadership? Last week, the Obama State Department submitted a report to the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights on the supposed human rights violations taking place in the United States. According to the Washington Times, the reportdescribes how the United States discriminates against the disabled, homosexuals, women, Native Americans, blacks, Hispanics and those who don’t speak English.
There is the expected pandering to Muslims…the report notes that until recently, the U.S. engaged in torture, unlawfully detained terrorist suspects and illegally spied on Americans communicating with terrorists … but the report assures readers that Mr. Obama has been putting a stop to all that.
Our beloved president has expressed bewilderment at recent polls showing large numbers of Americans doubt his commitment to Christianity.Because we hate to see our president even a wee bit flummoxed, let’s help him out. Do most Christians you know choose to decorate their Christmas tree with smiling images of Chairman Mao, who murdered at least 50 million of his countrymen, as well as signed photos of transvestite Hedda Lettuce? Well, that’s the very special holiday magic the Obamas decided to hang on their tree for their first White House Christmas, courtesy of famed Barney’s designer Simon Doonan.Maybe we’re just old-fashioned, but it’s our impression that most Christians celebrate the holidays with more serene images of angels, snowflakes and scenes from the Nativity.Also, do most Christians you know beautify their Christmas tree with images of themselves ensconced on Mount Rushmore? Oddly enough, that’s just what Mr. Obama decided to hang on his tree, fresh from his triumph winning the Nobel Prize. Perhaps images of Jesus or Mary were all sold out that day.
One other point: Most Christians of our acquaintance who want to pass on their sincere love of Christianity take their children to church on Christmas.
If so, they might want to speak to the president about that, since he couldn’t be bothered — on Christmas or any other week.Of course, the likeliest explanation is he was too transfixed by that shiny image of himself on Mount Rushmore to even leave the room.

Last night, President Obama did something amazing. He delivered — dare I say it? — a rather neoconservative speech, in the sense that neoconservatism has argued for aggressive American involvement in the world both for the world’s sake and for the sake of extending American freedoms in order to enhance and preserve American security.
Perhaps Obama did not even realize it, but when he said that “as the leader of the free world, America will do more than just defeat on the battlefield those who offer hatred and destruction — we will also lead among those who are willing to work together to expand freedom and opportunity for all people,” he was echoing ideas developed in neoconservative journals over decades of argument about how the United States can best project its power for its own sake and for the sake of the betterment of the world.
When he said that “we must use all elements of our power — including our diplomacy, our economic strength and the power of America’s example — to secure our interests and stand by our allies,” he was speaking in the voice of those neocons who argue that American geopolitical power is enhanced when we use it to bind our friends closer to us.And when he said that “we must project a vision of the future that is based not just on our fears, but also on our hopes — a vision that recognizes the real dangers that exist around the world, but also the limitless possibility of our time,” Barack Obama was offering a more secular version of George W. Bush‘s assertion that liberty is not something unique to the American constitution, but is “God‘s gift to humanity.”

A retired lieutenant general from the U.S. Air Force who commanded forces armed with nuclear weapons says the disclosure of Barack Obama‘s documentation proving his eligibility to be commander in chief is critical not just to the defense of an officer challenging the president’s status, but to the preservation of the nation itself.
The vehement statements came in an affidavit from retired Lt. Gen. Thomas G. McInerney, a Fox News military analyst, that was disclosed today by an organization generating support for Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin.Lt. Col. Terrence LakinLakin had invited his own court-martial because he is unable to follow orders under the chain of command with Obama at its head until and unless Obama’s eligibility is documented.A hearing is scheduled in Lakin’s court-martial case Thursday at which a ruling is expected on defense requests for the very evidence that McInerney is citing.

Have economists made themselves irrelevant? If you have any doubts, have a look at the current issue of the magazine, International Economy, a slick endorsed by former Federal Reserve chairmen Paul Volcker and Alan Greenspan, by Jean-Claude Trichet, president of the European Central Bank, by former Secretary of State George Shultz, and by the New York Times and Washington Post, both of which declare the magazine to be “ahead of the curve.”The main feature of the current issue is “The Great Stimulus Debate” [PDF] Is the Obama fiscal stimulus helping the economy or hindering it?

With the violent and racially-charged film ‘Machete’ about to hit theaters Friday, Alex Jones has once again questioned the film’s potential to heighten tensions in the immigration debate or even fuel riots or attacks.
Though the production crew has downplayed fears of a ‘race war’ message, recent sightings of bloody ‘Machete’ promo posters plastered throughout Latin America suggest that this violent film may still stir controversy and strong reactions.
We only hope director Robert Rodriguez and his production crew have thought carefully about what they are putting out on the big screen.The image of a bloody machete in a clenched fist, now plastered across the Latin American world to promote ‘Machete’– spotted recently by a listener in Puerto Rico– holds a double meaning. “Todos con Machete” is more than just a rally cry to join the hero of this Mexploitation film; the machete is the common symbol for peasant uprising in Mexico, Central and South America– the weapon of a disarmed population.
