It’s time to toss the all-volunteer military – The Washington Post | Bring the heat, Bring the Stupid
It’s time to toss the all-volunteer military – The Washington Post Rate This Since the end of the military draft in 1973, every person joining the U.S. armed forces has done so because he or she asked to be there.
Over the past decade, this all-volunteer force has been put to the test and has succeeded, fighting two sustained foreign wars with troops standing up to multiple combat deployments and extreme stress. This is precisely the reason it is time to get rid of the all-volunteer force. It has been too successful. Our relatively small and highly adept military has made it all too easy for our nation to go to war — and to ignore the consequences.via It’s time to toss the all-volunteer military – The Washington Post.

“We are busy in Washington with a corrupt government, with a government that I said perhaps because of the money, the amount of TARP and stimulus funds, was going to be the most corrupt government history and it is proving to be just exactly that. This money going though the hands of political leaders is corrupting the process, whether it is Solyndra, GSA, or a number of other scandals. Our mandate is to go after the wrongful acts of government or to review for reorganization laws already passed.”
» Ron Paul Has Been Quietly Piling Up Delegates – For a Brokered Convention? Alex Jones’ Infowars: There’s a war on for your mind!
Romney Nomination in doubt – Brokered Convention likelyWhite Out PressApril 25, 2012Two networks yesterday, CNBC and MSNBC, broadcast a little known fact – Ron Paul appears to be winning the Republican nomination for President. When the popular Texas Congressman
repeatedly assured supporters that the race was about delegates, not beauty contests, he apparently knew what he was talking about.
Now, after three more states locked in delegates to the GOP nominating convention – CO, MN and IA – indicators point to a brokered convention with a possible, even probable, Ron Paul victory.Mitt Romney in a panicThe only report announcing the news of another Paul victory yesterday was the Doug Wead Blog. That write-up, which included the headline, ‘Romney in a Panic’, was picked-up and reprinted by a number of independent news outlets like RT News and The Daily Paul. Wead’s conclusion is based on a number of factors.
First and foremost, Ron Paul continues to win more delegates than Mitt Romney during each state’s respective slating processes. Additionally, the writer points to drastic, last-minute changes to GOP procedure showing an attempt to limit the Paul vote. Some measures include a new poll tax in Washington and robo-calls in New York telling Republican voters that only Mitt Romney remains in the race.What has the GOP power-brokers and their candidate in such a panic?
Wurzelbacher told POLITICO he’s proud of his faith, and insisted the U.S. has always been a Judeo-Christian country.
“Our founding fathers, at one point in time, all pointed to God. All 50 states, in all state constitutions, ask for God’s guidance. There’s no argument this is a Judeo-Christian country. For someone to say it’s not is absurd, because the facts are there,” Wurzelbacher said.

Earlier in April, Digital Journal reported that Sergeant Gary Stein made posts criticizing President Barack Obama on his Facebook page.
Stein superimposed images of President Obama’s face on to a poster advertising the movie “Jackass”.
The comments about Obama were made on Stein’s Armed Forces Tea Party Facebook page. He posted in January: “I say screw Obama, I will not follow all orders from him.” Later, he clarified this statement by stressing that he “would not follow unlawful orders.”

Run-ins with pit bull reportedly led Zimmerman, wife to get guns
Posted on Thursday, April 26, 2012 12:34:56 PM by RoosterRedux
George Zimmerman and his wife began carrying handguns after repeated run-ins with a pit bull, and the volunteer neighborhood watchman continued his armed vigil over a gated community in Sanford, Fla., as a rash of burglaries left neighbors frightened, according to a report.
The couple took firearms training courses and got handguns and concealed carry permits in late 2009 — three years before Zimmerman shot unarmed teen Trayvon Martin dead — after a pit bull named Big Boi menaced Shellie Zimmerman near their home, Reuters reported.

Airborne troops from Russia and the Untied States would hold joint anti-terror drills in the U.S. state of Colorado between May 24 and 31, spokesman of the Russian Defense Ministry Col. Alexander Kucherenko said on Thursday.
According to the spokesman, it will be the first time that the Russian airborne forces have held exercises with the U.S. airborne forces on the U.S. territory.
“According to the exercise scenario, soldiers of the two countries will hold a tactical airborne operation, including the reconnaissance of imaginary terrorists’ camp and a raid,” Kucherenko said.
“After the operation, a helicopter will evacuate the soldiers,” Kucherenko said, adding that the Russian soldiers will also exercise with the U.S. special service weapons in the drills in Fort Carson, Colorado.
Besides, the spokesman said, the Russian group will arrive a week ahead of the drills and attend a baseball game in the city of Colorado Springs.

Obama’s Attacks on the Family Farm Come Straight From Marxist Handbook
Gateway Pundit ^ | April 26,2012 | Jim Hoft
Posted on Thursday, April 26, 2012 11:09:49 AM by Hojczyk
Barack Obama is attacking the family farm – an American tradition. The administration’s Department of Labor implemented new regulations to restrict children from working on the family farm. This is despite the fact that farm accidents and injuries have decreased over the past several years.
For generations children and adults have worked together on the family farm. Those days are over.
Senators John Thune (R-S.D.) and Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) introduced the Preserving America’s Family Farm Act, to prevent the Department of Labor (DOL) from enacting its controversial proposed restrictions that would ban children from working on family farms.
Recently, Senator John Thune spoke out against the Obama Administration’s proposed labor rules for youth who work on farms and ranches on the Senate floor.
The Marxist-Leninist dogma said, “A small property generates capitalism day by day, minute by minute, spontaneous, and in mass proportions.” The small-time farmer feeding his family, with a little surplus, was seen as an individual member of the bourgeoisie, requiring squashing.
Redistributing wealth is the only thing communists know how to do brutally and stealthily well. Those who do not pay taxes or hold down jobs protest that it is their right to steal someone else’s money. They’ve even come up with a new euphemism, they are not stealing the wealth of producers, they are merely forcing them to “share the burden.”
Prison Planet.com » The United States Has Plenty Of Oil: 10 Facts About America’s Energy Resources That Will Blow Your Mind
The United States is not running out of oil. In fact, nobody on the entire globe has more energy resources than the United States does. The truth is that we are absolutely swimming in oil and natural gas and we have so much coal that we have no idea what to do with it all.
At current consumption rates, America has enough energy resources to completely satisfy all of its needs well into the 22nd century. If we would just access those resources, we would not have to import a single drop of foreign oil. But most Americans don’t realize that we have plenty of oil. In fact, our education system has brainwashed most Americans into believing that our energy resources are rapidly being depleted and that we will soon enter a great energy crisis.
We are all constantly told that we must transition to “green energy” before it is too late. But the reality is that America is an energy rich nation and new discoveries of oil and natural gas deposits are being made all the time. Shouldn’t someone tell the American people the truth about these things?……………….EXCERPT!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Airborne troops from Russia and the United States would hold joint anti-terror drills in the U.S. state of Colorado between May 24 and 31,” reports the Xinhua news agency, citing Russian Defense Ministry Col. Alexander Kucherenko. The story was also reported by Russian news outlet RIA Novosti.
The exercises, which will mark the first time the respective country’s two airborne forces have held joint drills on U.S. territory, will revolve around the the “reconnaissance of imaginary terrorists’ camp and a raid,” and will also involve evacuations of the troops by helicopter.
The Russian soldiers will also be given access to U.S. special service weapons at Fort Carson.
However, the Russian troops won’t just be confined to a U.S. military base – on May 27 they’ll be out in the local community attending a baseball game in Colorado Springs.
“This announcement comes at a time when Russia actually has troops working in cooperation with China,” points out Business Insider’s Eloise Lee, making reference to one of the largest ever Russian-Sino naval drills currently underway in the Yellow Sea.
Alex Jones has documented foreign troops being trained on U.S. soil to deal with “insurgents” since the late 1990′s as part of “urban warfare drills”.

About an hour ago, I did an interview on Press TV saying I wanted Bradley Manning released.
I also pointed out that, though we found Julian Assange to be working with Israeli intelligence, yes, we know, using those two words together is, in itself, humor, Manning should be released.
Within an hour, Blankfoot, a curious character, had contacted one of our managing editors. He was incensed that I would “out” Assange, though Zbigniew Brzezinski did it in 2010 and Assange had been “busted” as an Israeli fraud dozens of times.
When it was Blankfoot, I knew I had drawn blood, that Assange had been hiding behind the suffering of Bradley Manning, forwarding Israel’s war on the United States. I learned nothing new about Blankfoot, he had made himself more than obvious long ago. Actually, I had thought he was dead.
Anyway, from an earlier article on VT:
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who was elected to his first term with help from the Tea Party in 2010 and who is sometimes cited as a potential GOP vice presidential pick,
lauded the United Nations, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for following their respective visions instead of asserting “narrow American interests” in a speech today on U.S. foreign policy.
In remarks at the liberal Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., Rubio sketched the advances made globally since the end of World War II as a result of America’s leadership.
“The purpose of the institutions we established, from the United Nations to the World Bank and the IMF was to spread peace and prosperity, not to assert narrow American interests,” said Sen. Rubio.

Barack Obama’s association with radical Critical Race Theory professor Derrick Bell did not end after Harvard Law School–and certainly not at the April 24, 1990 rally at which Obama embraced Bell, literally and figuratively.
Breitbart News has discovered a letter sent by Obama to Bell in February 1995 in which Obama asks Bell to review–and to blurb–an early version of Obama’s autobiography, then entitled Dreams of My Father.

HISTORY Not Now Taught in Public Schools – The Cover-Up of the Truth
This is a great beginning in understanding how we’ve always been “off the tracks”.
I’ve highlighted most of the years used in this article to better visualize where one is and have resort back to, at any given time. I’ve attempted to “clean up” some of the punctuation/spacing/capitalization problems that one experiences, when comparing the below with the pdf original. The embedded links, found in the body of the piece, regrettably, don’t work; they bring up something totally unrelated. Please pardon the seemingly unsendable spacing corrections, that eliminate themselves, while in e-mail transit. pjr
HISTORY Not Now Taught in Public Schools – The Cover-Up of the Truth
This article came from an Encyclopedia of American History, used to teach school kids until 1955, published by Harper and Row. It is 840 pages of a wealth of information. It shows the man who really discovered America. It shows all the land was called the Virginia land company, in dispute with the two corporations; the East India company and the Hudson Bay company. All three companies were owned by British business corporations. Remember; the American did not know, at the time, that the Vatican owned and controlled these British corporations, and their subjects, since the 1214 Treaty the King had with the Vatican’s Pope.
However, to hide this fact, the King was allowed to be the front for the Vatican (so as to hide this fact), as the modern Mafia has corporations front for them to hide from the FBI and other agencies. So, with that background, we shall see just how far down the slippery slopes of the Corporations of the States and United States are allowed to stifle education, so much so, that people have no clue who they really are and no clue who controls them. I will not make any comment, as it is all from the history books. You present day people, under 58, never have seen books in schools like this. IF I DO MAKE COMMENTS, it will be in all CAPS with [[[brackets around them]]]. The bolds are from the book itself and is not by chapters, but by the era of the time periods and you are referred to other pages of the book. So one is constantly going back and forth in the book.
I realize that many Tea Party folks have fallen for leftist tricks aimed at keeping the current Article II constitutional crisis off the table, but just how far are they willing to fall in the name of political agendas?
Real “constitutionalists” are as concerned about Article II as they are any other constitutional text, maybe even more so since the current Muslim-n-Chief is a one-man constitutional crisis of monumental proportions. Faux “constitutionalists” are those who cherry-pick which parts of the founding document to take issue with, based on their individual political agenda.
Many Tea Party folks seem to not care whether or not we uphold Article II constitutional requirements for the offices of President and Vice President. Others seem perfectly happy to accept fraudulent definitions of the term “Natural Born Citizen” so long as it suits their political agenda.
However, there is a reason why members of congress tried to alter the Natural Born Citizen requirement at least eight times in the run-up to Obama’s fraudulent election in 2008 – why leftists insist that the founders meant “anchor baby” when they insisted that only Natural Born Citizens of the United States hold the highest offices in our land – and that Marco Rubio would make the perfect VP selection for Mitt Romney in 2012….
In a word, the reason is AMNESTY by any means.
Barack Hussein Obama Jr. is without any reasonable doubt, a total fraud, and ineligible for the office he currently holds. Obama is not a Natural Born Citizen of the United States and neither is Marco Rubio.
So, to keep Obama in office, leftists must eliminate the true meaning of the term Natural Born Citizen and the best way to do that is to get Republicans to put their own ineligible candidate on the ticket with Romney… enter Marco Rubio.
Simply stated, a Natural Born Citizen is a citizen via the bloodline of the natural birth father. Obama’s natural birth father was a no time in his life, a legal citizen of the United States. He was at all times a legal citizen of Kenya and as such, could only pass Kenyan citizenship to Barack Hussein Obama II.
Sarah Palin was the first to recognize the problem: By participating in President Obama’s signature education initiative, the Common Core Standards, Alaska would lose control over its own curriculum.
On May 31, 2009, then-Gov. Palin announced Alaska would adopt a “watch and wait” attitude:
“If this initiative produces useful results, Alaska will remain free to incorporate them,” Gov. Palin said, adding that “high expectations are not always created by new, mandated federal standards written on paper. They are created in the home, the community and the classroom.”
Texas Gov. Rick Perry, to his credit, was the next to recognize a federal boondoggle when he saw one: “I will not commit Texas taxpayers to unfunded federal obligations or to the adoption of unproven, cost-prohibitive national standards and tests,” Gov. Perry wrote in a Jan. 13, 2010, letter to U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan.
In the ensuing two years, it’s become clear that Perry and Palin — two core conservative figures whose intelligence is routinely mocked by liberal “sophisticates” — were brilliantly prescient, indeed prophetic.
Website to help Sanford shooter with legal defense not functioning
The website that George Zimmerman set up to help raise money for his legal defense has been disabled.
The website http://www.therealgeorgezimmerman was no longer functioning as of Tuesday.
Accused murderer of Trayvon Martin George Zimmerman almost certainly will eventually face a jury. And what if that jury is all white? A recent Duke University study showed that all white juries in Florida were more likely to convict a black defendant than mixed ethnic juries. Though Zimmerman isn’t black, the defense almost certainly will pull out all stops to make the case that Zimmerman was the real victim and that Martin was the aggressor. In essence this means that jurors will be asked to do a defendant and victim role reversal and put Martin on trial.
After walking free for two months before he was charged, George Zimmerman was released on bond for murder charges. That release has many people questioning the judicial system.
Zimmerman was released on $150,000 on April 23. He is required to wear a GPS monitoring device and to check in with courts if he goes to another state. That result is insufficient to many who think the process has been a joke.
On Monday morning, my coffee was tainted, thanks to Drudge, by a story he posted in large letters at the top of his site.
It was a stomach-turning, New York Times piece from Sunday that crowed about the Dear Leader Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) unilaterally deciding that he is proudly using his Executive powers to bypass Congress.
Never mind that the Executive branch does not have the power to bypass Congress in matters unrelated to the limited confines of Executive authority, and even among the Executive powers, the President must have the consent of Congress in certain instances.
Of course, the Times story is not Drudge’s fault; he just linked to it, but since I do not bother reading the communist Left’s mouthpiece newspaper of record, I would not have otherwise seen the article. The title of the column was “Shift on Executive Powers Let Obama Bypass Rivals (Congress).” What shift, and by whom? The last I checked, the United States Constitution has not been “shifted,” although it has certainly been ignored for decades, but especially by the current administration.
“Facts are stubborn things.”
I love that quotation. John Adams said it back in 1774 when he took on the unpopular job of defending the British troops charged with the killings in the event now known as the Boston Massacre. Arguing off those same stubborn facts, Adams was able to get those troops acquitted.
“Facts are stubborn things.” You can lie about them and you can try to bury them, but they have a bad habit of revealing themselves. Sometimes, these revelations can take decades or even centuries, but sometimes — especially in a modern media age — those stubborn facts demand to be heard within days or weeks of the initial lies.
And so it is with the lies the media told about George Zimmerman.
“He’s a white man.” Wrong, so the media came up the tortured white-Hispanic. Turns out that even that is wrong. Zimmerman is also part black. Brutally Honest has the perfect summation: “In a delicious irony, it is Zimmerman who might actually look more like the son Obama never had.” Read more…

WASHINGTON – The Democratic National Committee is not going to like this bumper sticker.
Neither will Media Matters – or is that redundant?
It’s a protest against voter fraud and proclaims “Dead Men Vote Democrat.” But you’ve got to see it to fully appreciate it.
Have you ever noticed that one of the two major political parties is almost uniformly opposed to voter identification requirements? After all, you need an official photo ID to cash a check, to get on an airplane, to open a bank account. What is so objectionable about presenting one to show you are a legitimate, registered voter – and not an impostor?
Ask a Democrat.
One of the reasons they don’t like voter ID laws is because they prevent dead men from voting – as dead Democrats have been doing since the days of the original Chicago Mayor Richard Daley back in 1960, dead votes that may have swung a presidential election.
Police in Richmond, Va., have announced an initiative for officers on the midnight shift to inspect parked vehicles and then knock on the door of the owner’s home during the 12 a.m. to 4 a.m. time period “for an unexpected wakeup call” if they discover a situation that would lend itself to theft or vandalism.
But a civil-rights organization says the policy treads on citizens’ constitutional rights and, moreover, could create a dangerous situation for both the citizen and the police officer.
“The recent Trayvon Martin incident from Florida should serve as a stark warning of how the fear and misunderstanding of a homeowner can turn a benign situation into a tragedy involving loss of life,” John Whitehead, president of the Rutherford Institute, said in a letter to Richmond police chief Bryan Norwood.
A Catholic bishop in Illinois has come under intense attack for his comparison of President Obama’s healthcare policies with actions taken by Hitler in Germany. Bishop Daniel Jenky told attendees during a mass at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Peoria April 14 that the Obama administration is modeling historically repressive regimes that “tried to force Christians to huddle and hide only within the confines of their churches.”
The Associated Press quoted Bishop Jenky as saying that “Hitler and Stalin, at their better moments, would just barely tolerate some churches remaining open, but would not tolerate any competition with the state in education, social services and health care. In clear violation of our First Amendment rights, Barack Obama — with his radical, pro-abortion and extreme secularist agenda — now seems intent on following a similar path.”
The comments sparked a firestorm of protest from liberal individuals and groups. Lonnie Nasatir of the Chicago branch of the Anti-Defamation League demanded that Jenky apologize, calling his remarks “outrageous, offensive and completely over the top.” Nasatir insisted that the bishop’s comments had trivialized the deaths of millions of Jews, adding that there were few if any historic parallels to “the religious intolerance and anti-Semitism fostered in society by Stalin, and especially Hitler.”
The Chicago Tribune reported that the atheist group Americans United for Separation of Church and State had filed a complaint against Jenky with the IRS, in an attempt to wreak havoc with the diocese’s tax-exempt status. According to the Tribune, the secular group’s president, Barry Lynn, had accused the bishop of effectively urging Catholics to vote against Obama in the upcoming election, thereby violating federal law by inserting the church into a political campaign.
Four current and former Transportation Security Administration screeners have been arrested and face charges of taking bribes and looking the other way while suitcases filled with cocaine, methamphetamine or marijuana passed through X-ray machines at Los Angeles International Airport, federal authorities announced Wednesday.
President George Bush, President Barack Obama, and presidential hopeful Mitt Romney all work for the exact same handful of corporate-financier interests. While they vary in how they dress up their methods of carrying out what is essentially a singular agenda, there is glaring continuity from one administration to the next in a process analogous to a corporate spokesman presenting the agenda of the board of directors. Changing spokesmen doesn’t change the agenda of the board of directors.
