Gunny G: Is What This Country Needs Right Now A David Crockett To Write Real Americans A Stirring Letter…?
Just prior to the battle where they are besieged by General Santa Ana and his forces, Crockett receives a letter from Santa Ana.
At that time, morale is sagging and a certain amount of uncertainty and hesitation is growing. Crockett then decides to read the letter to his men.
Crockett : Talking about whose ox gets gored, figure this : fellow gets in the habit of goring oxes, whets his appetite. He may come up north next and gore yours ! Men, we’re in a little fix, sort of. The he-bull around here, general Santa Anna, he’s mad at us.
Beekeeper : Yeah ?
Crockett : He’s wrote us a letter. I can’t read it, it’s in Spanish, (winking at Flaca Smile but the young lady will.

Like a master criminal irresistibly drawn to the scene of his crime, it appears that Bill Ayers — Marxist, terrorist, educator — was in attendance when Barack Obama cast his “historic” vote in the 2008 presidential election. Not only was he present, but he has reminisced about the experience with his unique brand of leftist lyricism, suggesting that the moment was deeply satisfying for him.
In April of 2010, Publisher’s Weekly (PW) featured an article on Ayers in its “Comics World” section, related to the publication of a graphic novelization of Ayers’ 1993 book, To Teach: The Journey of a Teacher. The article includes a short interview with Ayers, in which he discusses the process of developing the graphic novel with his partner, cartoonist Ryan Alexander-Tanner.
Towards the end of the article, the interviewer, John Seven, broaches the subject of Ayers’ sudden “notoriety” during the 2008 campaign, which happened to coincide with the period during which Ayers and Alexander-Tanner were working on their book.
Confronting our spiritual bankruptcy… “What should we expect from a nation of men and women who for years and even generations have demanded and subsequently celebrated the successful eviction of God from our lives, our national institutions and country as a whole? All of this is the name of tolerance, of equality, of the perversity of…………”

The clamor that is about to dominate the next several news cycles will be the usual stable of pundits engaging in obligatory verbal hand-wringing over the unthinkable death of innocents in a small Connecticut town. Newtown was once a town where life was the imitation of a Norman Rockwell painting, and where any of those young children whose lives were shortened by unimaginable madness could have been the very faces depicted in the paintings by Rockwell himself.
Individually and collectively, we weep for our needless loss. The salty bitterness we taste from the tears that stream down our faces must serve to remind us that our tears originate from a much greater loss and a much deeper trouble that anyone before the camera or in front of a keyboard has the willingness to confront. No one, I suspect, will have the moral courage to address the real problem, or the intellectual honesty needed to rebuke the fallacious arguments that are about to occur between pundits who are, it appears, just made-over and better dressed carnival barkers for their own agendas.
(Gunny G: What “The Folks” Are Saying About Hillary, Etc.–See reader Responses!) ~ State Department preparing for Libya bombshell?
Susan Rice‘s abrupt withdrawal from consideration for secretary of state, coupled with suggestions from the State Department that Secretary Hillary Clinton may not testify as scheduled next week, has stirred speculation that something big is brewing in the Libya terror attack investigation.
For the better part of the last three months, an independent board has been conducting a review for the State Department of the Sept. 11 terror attack in Benghazi. In anticipation of the report’s conclusion, two congressional committees scheduled hearings for next week in which Clinton was set to testify.
Some might wonder if it was the cervesa or the stomach flu, but it looks like Hillary took a dive and is down for the count.
From The Department of State:
While suffering from a stomach virus, Secretary Clinton became dehydrated and fainted, sustaining a concussion. She has been recovering at home and will continue to be monitored regularly by her doctors.
At their recommendation, she will continue to work from home next week, staying in regular contact with Department and other officials. She is looking forward to being back in the office soon.
Republican congressman questions delay in arrest of Menendez intern who is a registered sex offender
Republican congressman questions delay in arrest of Menendez intern who is a registered sex offender

The Associated Press reported earlier this week that the department ordered immigration agents not to arrest Sanchez, an unpaid intern working for Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., until after Election Day.
Chaffetz’s inquiry was the first from Capitol Hill on the matter. He called the situation “disturbing” in a letter dated Thursday to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. Chaffetz asked that officials brief him and his staff by Jan. 3 and provide answers in writing.
Authorities in Hudson County notified U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in early October that they suspected Sanchez was an illegal immigrant who was a registered sex offender and who may be eligible to be deported. ICE agents in New Jersey notified superiors at the Homeland Security Department because they considered it a potentially high profile arrest, and the department instructed them not to arrest Sanchez until after the November election, one U.S. official told the AP. ICE officials complained that the delay was inappropriate, but the department directed them several times not to act, the official said.

Florida, the battleground for many elections, has an opportunity right now to resolve the issue of Barack Obama’s eligibility, according to a court filing in a case brought by a Democrat under state law that allows such challenges.
“On Nov. 6, 2012, the state of Florida held its 2012 general election. On Nov. 10, 2012, defendant Barack Hussein Obama was declared the official winner of the Florida general election. Yet defendant Obama has never established his eligibility for the presidency of the United States,” says a filing today from attorney Larry Klayman.
“Indeed, neither defendant Obama, nor the Democratic Party of Florida, has even stated that defendant Obama is a ‘natural born citizen,’” the filing said. “The only evidence of defendant Obama’s alleged birth within the United States has come in the form of an electronic version posted on the Internet. However, there has been evidence to show that this ‘birth certificate’ has either been altered or is entirely fraudulent.”

Some have analyzed the number of men in the Union army at the start of the War to be around 15,000 men, coming from all over the country. When the Southern states legally seceded many of those men went south to fight for their states. Thus the size of the Union army, not large to begin with, was further reduced. It has been estimated that between 4-5000 Forty-eighter socialists fled to this country as their revolutionary activities in Europe started to wind down.

This is one of those nagging little questions the “history” books will never bother to answer, not even address, if their authors can avoid it.
Fully 95% of the information dealing with the “Forty-eighter” socialists involvement in the Union army and the early Republican Party has been carefully swept into a nice, neat little pile and quietly dumped down the memory hole.
It is fervently hoped by most public educators that most students will continue on in their programmed ignorance, not even knowing in what century the War of Northern Aggression was fought in, nor what the real issues were.
That way none of the educrats parading as historians will ever have to answer any embarrassing questions. But, here and there, some little tidbit, like a dust bunny caught in the breeze, manages to avoid the memory hole…

Mass Killings Stopped by Armed Citizens… (“There are several documented cases where armed citizens have stopped mass attacks by gunmen. Let me list a few:”…)
There are several documented cases where armed citizens have stopped mass attacks by gunmen. Let me list a few: The Pearl, Mississippi school shooting was stopped by the vice principal Joel Myrick with a Colt .45, The Appalachian School shooting was stopped by two students with handguns. Both of the above incidents were stopped by the armed citizens threatening the shooter without firing.

Plans to slay everyone in the Muskegon, Michigan, store and steal enough cash and jewelry to feed their “gnawing hunger for crack cocaine” fell apart for a band of would-be killers after one of their victims fought back.
BELMONT, Maine — Mack Page was sound asleep in his bed at 11 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 3, when he was startled awake by the frantic barking of his black Labrador.
“What have I got now?” the 63-year-old commander of the Maine Militia remembers wondering. “A raccoon? A coyote?”
But it was none of those things. Instead, Page’s dark residence on a quiet Belmont road suddenly was lit up by men outside his windows carrying flashlights. He lives alone, he’s not in the best of health and he was scared.
Many people have believed that 9/11 was an inside job to bring war to Iraq & to feed the Military industrial complex.. So, it’s just as plausible that Obama has been behind these mass-shootings to shove gun-control down our throats..
He has already sent out his messengers to test the waters, like Andrea Mitchell and Kike Bloomberg.
Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that’s it.
In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.
When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force.
The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gangbanger, and a single gay guy on equal footing with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.
America now has its second worst mass shooting. And it, as usual, accompanied by calls for gun control. It’s no coincidence that we have had quite a few spree killings in such a short time. The lavish coverage of every shooting by the media encourages every shooter to think that he will be famous if he goes out and kills. And that is exactly what happens.
Our shooters are creatures of the media, not the NRA. A media that turns killers into celebrities and then warns that the only way to stop more shootings is by cracking down on firearms.
Obama Moving To Criminalize Criticism Of Islam… (“If you simply pull back the curtain and look at what Obama has been doing in plain sight—inviting groups convicted of terrorism into the White House, having Muslim Brotherhood members within the State Department, purging training materials of anything critical of Islam–you would find that this whole “conspiracy theory” goes by another term: the truth.”)
The whole “conspiracy theory” of the Obama administration being infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood, purging government documents critical of Islam, and seeking to criminalize the criticism of Islam is just that—a conspiracy theory—isn’t it?
Sadly, it isn’t.
The Criminal State by Gerard N. Casey… (” If it weren’t for the state’s enforcing contracts, protecting property rights, keeping the peace, printing currency, preventing monopolies, and so on, you or anyone else wouldn’t be able to go about your daily business. So, the argument goes…”)
States are criminal organizations. All states, not just the obviously totalitarian or repressive ones. The only possible exceptions to this sweeping claim are those mini-states that are, in effect, swollen bits of private property, such as the Vatican.
I intend this statement to be understood literally and not as some form of rhetorical exaggeration. The argument is simple. Theft, robbery, kidnapping and murder are all crimes.
Those who engage in such activities, whether on their own behalf or on behalf of others are, by definition, criminals. In taxing the people of a country, the state engages in an activity that is morally equivalent to theft or robbery; in putting some people in prison, especially those who are convicted of so-called ‘victimless crimes’ or when it drafts people into the armed services, the state is guilty of kidnapping or false imprisonment; in engaging in wars that are other than purely defensive or, even if defensive, when the means of defence employed are disproportionate and indiscriminate, the state is guilty of manslaughter or murder.
For many people, perhaps most, these contentions will seem both shocking and absurd. Some will immediately object that taxation is clearly not theft. They may say, as Craig Duncan does  , that since you don’t have legal title to all your pre-tax income the state commits no crime in appropriating that part of your income to which it is entitled. The problem with this objection is that it completely begs the question – is the state entitled to part of your income?
The libertarian contention that taxation is the moral equivalent of theft can be true, Duncan believes, only if people have a moral right ‘to keep and control all their earnings’  but this claim, he thinks, is beset with fatal problems. To illustrate this point, he rehearses the tragedy of Annie, the antiques dealer, who has to hand over 20 per cent of her earnings to the owner of the premises she rents to conduct her business.
If Annie were to claim that she had a right to all her earnings and shouldn’t be obliged to fork over the 20 per cent, the building owner will respond that without his premises, she wouldn’t have been able to make any sales in the first place.
‘Something similar,’ says Duncan, ‘is true of government taxes.’  If it weren’t for the state’s enforcing contracts, protecting property rights, keeping the peace, printing currency, preventing monopolies, and so on, you or anyone else wouldn’t be able to go about your daily business. So, the argument goes, by analogy the state has a moral entitlement to a portion of your earnings, presumably to at least an amount sufficient to cover the costs of these services.
And, Russ, I remember that J. Edgar Hoover admitted that there was a CIA agent named George Bush in Dallas on the day Kennedy was assassinated. Was that George H.W. Bush?
BAKER: What I do in Family of Secrets is I raise the issue of Mr. Bush’s past and indications that, prior to being made CIA director in 1976, supposedly, as an outsider, that, in fact, he was not an outsider, that he had a whole secret history working with the agency. I then address the question of why he claimed not to remember where he was on November 22, 1963. And then, as you know, in Family of Secrets, I present many, many factual and documented occurrences and connections of real interest. And one of those, as you mentioned, is a declassified document from Hoover naming Bush as a CIA officer, working somehow with Cuban exiles, and in some reference to the Kennedy assassination. There is a second declassified document that shows Mr. Bush, my name, with his home address, calling the FBI on November 22, and now representing himself as a private citizen, but offering some information that he says could lead to the shooter of President Kennedy. This, in itself, just remarkable, being the same person who says he can’t remember where he was.

Senate Democrats who helped pass ObamaCare are finally seeing what is in it and aren’t really so sure the massive tax increases mandated in the legislation will be good for their constituents, especially when it comes to the medical device tax which is set to further increase on January 1.
With some of their most influential constituent groups facing onerous tax increases that are slated to help fund the law’s mandates and regulations, Senators like Al Franken (D-MN), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Charles Schumer (D-NY), Patty Murray (D-WA), John Kerry (D-MA), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and others — all of whom voted in favor of the law — are aiming to delay or outright repeal parts of ObamaCare.
How to stop an ineligible ‘president’… (“Now, this Republican Party, soundly beaten in the November elections and essentially politically a dead letter, has yet a new opportunity to resurrect itself and show……”)
Over the last four years, modern-day “Sons of Liberty” – such as Joseph Farah, WND, its prized investigative reporters such as Jerome Corsi and courageous lawmen like Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse – have worked tirelessly to have President Barack Hussein Obama thoroughly investigated over the issue of his place of birth.
It is well-known that Obama had for years refused to release his claimed Hawaiian birth certificate and other official documents that reflect on whether he was born in U.S. territory as he claims, or in Kenya where his father of the same name hailed. If born in Kenya or somewhere else outside of American territory, Obama would be ineligible to run for and serve as president. And, even if born in America, Obama does not qualify as a “natural born citizen” under our Constitution, since he was not, as also required under our law to be president, sired by two American citizen parents.
