Marine’s Message for Guy Who Shot Him: “I Would’ve Whipped His Butt”

Marine Lt. Col. Karl Trenker has a message for the criminal who shot him.
“If he didn’t have a pistol I would’ve whipped his butt,” the Miramar resident said.
“I did not perceive any danger, and being a Marine and all I’m not one to back down from a fight, so I was going to get my necklace back,” said the father of five.
Deputies say Jeff Steele and James Flounory, both 20, are the suspects.
While Trenker was chasing them Wednesday, Steele allegedly turned and fired several shots. At least three hit the Marine. He used his fingers to plug his wounds, then ran back to his pickup truck to assure his four kids he would be OK.
“I can’t believe it, I go to Iraq and Afghanistan multiple times and I haven’t been shot or blown up,” Trenker said Friday. “I’m here at home in Florida, and here I am riding away in an ambulance with a bunch of gunshot wounds.”
Are Our Nuclear Secrets Safe In Obama’s Hands?

Inviting Espionage: The administration is considering reviving a ’90s-era nuclear scientist exchange program with China. Does no one in the White House remember how much damage the previous arrangement caused?
Of the many regrettable initiatives dreamed up by the Clinton administration, few were as perverse as the nuclear scientist exchange program. The arrangement turned out to be a gift to the Chinese, who were able to steal U.S. nuclear secrets virtually in plain sight.
Either unable or unwilling to learn from the past, the Obama administration wants to bring the program back. The Washington Times reports that “Deputy Energy Secretary Daniel B. Poneman is working on a major Obama administration initiative that would renew scientist exchanges between U.S. nuclear weapons laboratories and Chinese nuclear facilities.”

Last night in his post debate interview with Sean Hannity, Ron Paul was asked once again about the racists newsletters that were published in his name in the early 1990′s. I have heard this subject discussed multiple times and have come to a personal conclusion about his answer to questions and his responsibility for those words. However, this time in his answer, Paul cited a source with information about them that I wasn’t familiar with, a piece done in a magazine called Texas Monthly a decade ago.
Here is the portion of the transcript with the relevant question and answer exchange between Hannity and Paul:
Sean Hannity: … And I really admire your fierce supporters, but when I brought up the issue of your newsletters from the early 1990s, and some really outrageous things that have been written in there. And you had gone on record saying you had no idea what was in them. That kind of surprised me. Why do you not take responsibility for the things that were in your individual newsletters?
New Hampshire Herald Newspaper interview with Larry Sinclair on his homosexual encounter with Obama & Cocaine:
Yesterday, Dr. Orly Taitz and her plaintiffs lost another round with the Ninth Silly Circuit Court of Appeals:
‘Birthers‘ vow to appeal Obama ruling on right to be president
The Liberty Law Foundation filed two lawsuits in October that I believe have a very good chance at succeeding:
Apparently there is one other individual in Georgia who is being represented by Liberty Law Foundation. Here is the motion to separate:
It appears attorney, Van Irion, does not want his client joined with the other one; Dr. Orly Taitz is the attorney; see here:
Motion to Consolidate by the court:
Quite frankly, and I know Dr. Taitz’s supporters will beat me up on this, I fully support Irion’s move. The issue is ballot eligibility, not Obama using a fake SSN, his passports or anything else.
Their law firm has also filed in New Hampshire. Here is the document:
We’ve all learned a great deal over the past three years from the cases kicked to the curb. Secretaries of State throughout the country maintain their job is only ministerial. It is the RNC and DNC and “third” parties who are required to vet any candidate for eligibility regardless of office sought.
I will be sending out the Items Missed a little bit later. I know this is a lot of reading, but with the Christmas holiday, folks might have extra time to get up to speed.
I would also recommend visiting Liberty Law Foundation’s site – they are quite busy:

Col Lawrence Sellin USAR (Ret.), PhD…CALLS ‘EM LIKE HE SEES ‘EM !!!!!
The politically-incestuous, incompetent, faux-leaders in Congress will continue to posture and position themselves, cut secret deals, nod and wink at each other.
When the American people demand accountability and challenge the power of the political establishment through grass roots citizen groups like the Tea Party, the Republican and Democratic Parties join the mainstream media to ridicule or condemn them as “Hobbits”, “racists” and “extremists.”
To the political royalty, Americans are no longer citizens of a republic, but serfs. They not only ignore our petitions for the redress of grievances and treat our views with disdain, but they have declared war on us.
The loyalty of the American people is to our country and our Constitution, not to criminal officeholders, partisan judges and submissive bureaucrats.
They have all forfeited their privilege to represent us or participate in our government.
THERE IS NO CREDIBLE EVIDENCE THAT OBAMA WAS ACTUALLY BORN ANYWHERE

Have members of the U.S. House and Senate betrayed the American people by their actions, secret deals, and failure to represent?
(Dec. 23, 2011) — Parliament of Whores was an international best-selling political humor book, written by P. J. O’Rourke and published in 1991. It was a brilliant and scathing critique of the American system of governance from a conservative perspective.
To me it does not seem so funny anymore.
Who would have imagined in 1991 that O’Rourke’s title would have provided an appropriate epitaph for the beginning of the downfall of the United States?
The American republic has entered the first stage of decline. It has become a totalitarian democracy, a political system described by Israeli historian J. L. Talmon, in which lawfully elected representatives rule a nation state whose citizens, although granted the right to vote, have little or no participation in the decision-making process of government……
Could Kim Jong Il Have Been President of the United States?| The Post & Email ~ “ACCORDING TO AUTHOR OF CRS MEMOS, “YES””
ACCORDING TO AUTHOR OF CRS MEMOS, “YES”
by Creg Maroney
Kim Jong-Un is the youngest son and designated new leader of North Korea following his father’s death on December 17, 2011
(Dec. 23, 2011) — Mr. Jack Maskell titles himself as ” legislative attorney in the American Law Division of Congressional Research Service.” He has sent out more then one memo with half truths trying to manipulate and mislead congress and the citizens of the United States. According to Mr. Maskell and the Congressional Research Service Kim Jong-Un, the son of the late North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il, could have been President of the United States if only his birth had taken place on U.S. soil. He also appears to confirm that Un’s parents’ foreign citizenship would have no burden on the requirements for the Presidency or commander of the entire U.S. Armed Forces.
The Congressional Research Service is described as “a legislative branch agency within the Library of Congress,” which is defined as “the nation’s oldest federal cultural institution, is the world’s preeminent reservoir of knowledge, providing unparalleled integrated resources to Congress and the American people.”

Effective. A filial endorsement is endearing, if predictable, and Rand’s already prominent enough as a national figure that his stamp of approval qualifies as a rare “mainstream” thumbs up for his pop.
The message is smart, too: No policy specifics, just a promise that Ron will stick to his principles because that’s what he’s been doing for 50 years. True enough; whatever his other faults, the fear that President Paul would “evolve” in office is absolute zero. Quite a contrast with the likely nominee…..

“Gunslinger” typically refers to the men of the Old West who gained a reputation for being skilled and dangerous with a gun. Among the ranks of these popular legends are outlaws and lawmen alike, although we know today that the line was often blurred, hence the enduring reputation of the gunslinger as an unpredictable and wily opportunist.
For the purposes of this article, however, I use “gunslinger” to refer to an armed man who offers the service of his presence and skills to protect a client’s material interests.

Many musicians and writers of poetry will admit that some of their finest work comes when they have experienced a death or a tragedy of some kind, that the writing of poetry has an almost cathartic effect.
Such is the case of one of the best known and most beloved carols associated with Christmas, “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day,” which came from the pen of American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and was written on Christmas Day, 1864.
His had been a tortured life in last few years before that day. On July 11, 1861, his wife Fanny had clipped some long curls from the head of her seven-year-old daughter, Edith, and wanting to save them in an envelope, melted a bar of sealing wax with a candle to seal the envelope.
Somehow the thin fabric of her clothing caught fire, and she quickly ran to Longfellow’s nearby study for help. He immediately tried to extinguish the flames with a small rug, and when that failed, he threw his arms around Fanny to smother the flames, causing him to sustain serious burns on his face, arms, and hands. His heroic act did not suffice, and Fanny died the next morning of her injuries. Longfellow was unable to even attend the funeral.
Photographs of Longfellow taken or made after the fire usually show him with a full beard, since he was no longer able to shave properly due to the burns and scarring.
National Review’s Racist Rants by Thomas DiLorenzo ~ “…by smearing Ron Paul as being insensitive on matters of race…”
Lying the nation into war with Iraq by spreading the falsehood of “weapons of mass destruction” that were supposedly headed our way was the most atrociously evil act perpetrated by the U.S government and its propaganda organs in decades, having led to the senseless death of thousands of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis.
No one should be surprised that National Review is now engaged in a spectacular act of chutzpah, to put it mildly, by smearing Ron Paul as being insensitive on matters of race. Before anyone gives any credence to the latest smear campaign against Congressman Paul it would be useful to take a look at National Review’s own record of publications on the issue of race relations. It is not a pretty picture…..
Why Ron Paul Can Win by James Jaeger ~ “But here’s what really terrifies them: Ron Paul is in a position to hand the election of 2012 over to Barack Obama and the Democrats because…”
But here’s what really terrifies them: Ron Paul is in a position to hand the election of 2012 over to Barack Obama and the Democrats because he would be a “spoiler.” But even more terrifying is the fact that Dr. Paul is in a position to be much more than a “spoiler” – he’s in a position to be a “winner.”
Etymology of the term SPOILER:
The term “spoiler” is a derogatory term that was dreamt up by statists in the Democratic and Republican parties in order to sucker the public into continuously voting for no one outside the Establishment. In other words, if you vote your conscience, YOU are a “spoiler.” If you run on principles of your conscience and take votes away from an Establishment candidate, YOU are also a “spoiler.”
…..The Constitution of the United States made no provision for executive orders. Congress never votes to create one, yet executive orders have the force of law. The Constitution says that all laws must be passed by a majority in both houses of Congress and then be signed by the President.
Therefore, during my time as President, the government of the United States will be run exclusively by laws that were passed in accordance with the Constitution. I do not have the authority to repeal laws on my own. I do have the authority to repeal executive orders. I have just repealed 13,600 of them.
From this point on, you are not obligated to conform to rules and regulations issued under executive orders. Of course, the various executive departments of the United States government will do their best to ignore this, so you had better check with your lawyer…..

BUT WHERE DO “WE THE PEOPLE” STAND NOW?
by Neil Turner
(Dec. 23, 2011) — The Constitution was a better idea, making all that went before it OBSOLETE. It made:
Tribalism & Socialism: OBSOLETE
Caesars & Potentates: OBSOLETE
Dictators & Kings: OBSOLETE
Communism & Fascism (extreme LEFT): OBSOLETE
Democracy & Anarchy (extreme RIGHT): OBSOLETE
Totalitarianism & BIG Government: OBSOLETE
(The process of becoming no longer in use or of being useful:
OBSOLETE – replaced by a better idea)
This ‘new idea’, a Constitutional Republic, where the People had the final say – according to an agreed-upon (and sworn-to) set of rules and standards to guide them. A new and better idea that turned the old way of doing things UPSIDE-DOWN!

The TSA has been responsible for over 9,000 unannounced “security checkpoints” over the last year alone, as the federal agency’s VIPR program expands to become a literal occupying army in the name of safety.
“The TSA’s 25 “viper” teams — for Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response — have run more than 9,300 unannounced checkpoints and other search operations in the last year. Department of Homeland Security officials have asked Congress for funding to add 12 more teams next year,” reports the L.A. Times.
The figure is completely independent from the federal agency’s role inside the nation’s airports, which costs taxpayers $5 billion a year, with the department having spent an additional $110 million in fiscal year 2011 for “surface transportation security,” while requesting a further $24 million for next year.
The extra money is being demanded despite the fact that there is “no proof that the roving viper teams have foiled any terrorist plots or thwarted any major threat to public safety,” according to the report, which also highlights how the TSA’s sniffer dogs are used to single out people for questioning if the dog smells the scent of the owner’s pets on their clothing.

“I think people mistake tolerance for muzzling,” Andrew Walther, vice president of communications for Knights of Columbus, a group that has been at the forefront of the campaign to “Keep Christ in Christmas” for more than five decades, told WND. “The entire point of the First Amendment, to have freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, is that we can practice our faith and we can speak publicly about things that matter to us.”

According to this article and this article, Obama’s FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) is getting camps ready for not only the post-economic collapse, but for political dissidents and critics of government criminality. This will be made possible by Congress’s just having codified into law Obama’s dictatorship by giving him the power to treasonously turn the military against the American people.
Thanks to the imbeciles and criminals of Congress, Obama can have anyone apprehended and detained indefinitely, merely by labeling someone a “terrorist,” at his discretion, without any evidence presented against the accused, without any charges or trial.
