The U.S. military faces devastating losses in troop strength and training, equipment procurement and maintenance, and mission capability if Congress does not avert automatic spending cuts set to begin March 1, top defense officials testified Tuesday.
“Secretary [Leon E.] Panetta and I have been using the word devastating for 16 months now,” said Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, who testified with military leaders at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing. “And now the wolf’s at the door.”

The nation’s top military officers formed a solid front in the Senate on Tuesday and called on members of Congress to stop passing temporary spending measures and avert the automatic budget cut known as sequester.
“We should resist kicking this can further down the road,” said Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in a rare hearing featuring nearly all of the Joint Chiefs, who lined up before the Senate Armed Service Committee and demanded budget clarity in the name of national security and military readiness.

There is a growing groundswell within American Republican and Tea Party ranks that impeachment proceedings should be initiated against President Obama on a whole list of violations of the Constitution and the War Powers Act
Congressmen Allen West of Florida (R-Florida) and Darrell Issa (R- California) have consistently and loudly criticized the president for overstepping the political mark and bypassing Congress’s approval on a whole range of dubious policies and issues:and the recent Obama attack on the Supreme Court of Justice and the Russian ” Open Mic ” gaffe on National Security, leads to one question:
Is Barack Obama making his own case for impeachment? Obama did not become the Democratic nominee for President without the help of several leaders of the Democratic Party who knew that he was not eligible for office
OBAMA URGED TO RESIGN OVER BEYONCÉ SCANDAL

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) – A rising chorus of congressional Republicans are calling on President Obama to acknowledge that the pop singer Beyoncé lip-synched during his inaugural festivities on Monday and resign from office, effective immediately.
“By lip-synching the national anthem, Beyoncé has cast a dark cloud over the President’s second term,” said Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky). “The only way President Obama can remove that cloud is by resigning from office at once.”

HILLARY: Was it because of a protest or was it because guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference does it make? It is our job to figure what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.
Now, honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this, but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information.
…..Chuck Hagel has been nominated to supervise the beginning of this generation-long process of defense cutbacks. If a Democratic president is going to slash defense, he probably wants a Republican at the Pentagon to give him political cover, and he probably wants a decorated war hero to boot.
How will he balance modernizing the military and paying current personnel? How will he recalibrate American defense strategy with, say, 455,000 fewer service members?How, in short, will Hagel supervise the beginning of America’s military decline?
Connecticut legislator DebraLee Hovey, a six-term Republican state representative for the towns of Monroe and Newtown, had some candid, if ill-advised words for Gabrielle Giffords, who visited with victims of the Sandy Hook shooting on Friday.
“Gabby Gifford [sic] stay out of my towns!!” Hovey wrote on her then-public Facebook, via mobile from Saint Pete Beach, Florida. “It was political,” she elaborated in the comments, according to cringey screenshots obtained by the Hartford Courant.
“The Lt Gov was there […] and ALL political types KNOW it is courteous to let sitting Reps known when another political [sic] is in their District,” Hovey went on. “So……. There was pure political motives.” (The visit, while “low-key” and without press, was reported in advance.)
Lol, Obama calls Romney an asshole live on tv during the presidential debate. This year’s election has to be one of the most historic and memorable elections of all time.
The 25 Most Obnoxious Quotes From Barack Obama
Posted on Tuesday, September 18, 2012 7:14:38 AM by Kaslin
25) “No, no. I have been practicing…I bowled a 129. It’s like — it was like Special Olympics, or something.” — Barack Obama
24) “I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions.” — Barack Obama
23) “I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.” — Barack Obama
Paying attention to politics matter of self-defense… (“…about libertarianism; the politics, or “anti-politics” as the case may be, of liberty….”)
Every day, in a variety of places, I write about libertarianism; the politics, or “anti-politics” as the case may be, of liberty. Everything I am is libertarian.
That shouldn’t scare you; it just means I will not steal from you and I won’t use force against you unless it is in self-defense, nor will I have other people do this dirty work on my behalf.
RUSH: Here. Grab audio sound bite number 14. This, to me, is perfectly illustrative of some things that we were talking about yesterday. Rahm Emanuel. The murder rate in Chicago is out of control. It’s out of sight. People are being murdered in Obama’s town left and right, in Rahm Emanuel’s town left and right. So the mayor of Chicago, “the Godfather,” Rahm Emanuel appealed to the city’s gangsters.
He appealed to the city’s gangsters. I don’t even want to flavor this. Let’s just play the audio sound bite. This is on the CBS Evening News last night with Scott Pelley. Pelley said, “After Heaven Sutton was killed, you said, ‘It’s not about crime. It’s about values.’ What do you mean by that?”

Really? And people will vote for this ass with a straight face???
Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency is using aerial drones to spy on farmers in Nebraska and Iowa. The surveillance came under scrutiny last week when Nebraska’s congressional delegation sent a joint letter to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson.EPA Using Drones to Spy on Cattle Ranchers in Nebraska and Iowa Drone%20Surveillance chunOn Friday, EPA officialdom in “Region 7” responded to the letter.“Courts, including the Supreme Court, have found similar types of flights to be legal for example to take aerial photographs of a chemical manufacturing facility and EPA would use such flights in appropriate instances to protect people and the environment from violations of the Clean Water Act,” the agency said in response to the letter.
Two New York legislators have taken a page from the playbook of aspiring internet regulator Joe Lieberman by sponsoring a bill that would make the posting of anonymous comments illegal.
The bill written by Republican State Senators Dean Murray and Thomas O’Mara states:
“A web site administrator upon request shall remove any comments posted on his or her web site by an anonymous poster unless such anonymous poster agrees to attach his…name to the post and confirms that his…IP address, legal name and home address are accurate. All web site administrators shall have a contact number or e-mail address for such removal requests clearly visible in any sections where comments are posted.”
The stated purpose of the Act is “…to amend the civil rights law, in relation to protecting a person’s right to know who is behind an anonymous internet posting.” Apparently, it has now become a civil right to know what your neighbor thinks of Barack Obama, the United Nations, or Jerry’s House of Pancakes.
According to Murray and O’Mara, passage of the Act would “…cut down on cyberbullying, protect small businesses such as restaurants from unfounded, negative reviews and, naturally, protect politicians from baseless, derogatory attacks during campaign time.” As one wag added, “I’m sure that last concern is only an afterthought.”
Thanks to House Republicans, a major school pension reform passed by the state Senate last week could be undone. As reported by CapCon, Senators defied government employee unions by voting to close the chronically underfunded “defined benefit” school pension system to new employees, starting in 2013.

A teacher is now suspended with pay after audio was found of her yelling at a student for criticizing President Obama.

“About 30,000 active-duty troops and a similar number of reserve-component members owe the Internal Revenue Service a collective $390 million in back taxes, according to IRS data,” reports WTLX.A new law buried within a transport bill that has already passed the Senate and is expected to pass the House shortly would empower the IRS to revoke passports of Americans accused of tax delinquency.
“There is no requirement that the tax payer be guilty of or even charged with tax evasion, fraud, or any criminal offense — only that the citizen is alleged to owe the IRS back taxes of $50,000 or more,” reports the Daily Economist.
…..Stein is not the first serviceman to be disciplined by the Obama administration. Earlier this year, for example, Cpl. Jesse Thorsen was in hot water for publicly endorsing Republican presidential hopeful Rep. Ron Paul and a non-interventionist foreign policy. Even military chaplains are being censored.
Before that, Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin was court martialed for refusing to obey orders from Obama until he proved his eligibility to serve as President. The career Army officer was not allowed to call witnesses or present evidence, according to news reports, and was eventually sentenced to six months in military detention.
Meanwhile, polls show U.S. troops are quickly losing confidence in their Commander-in-Chief and the various unconstitutional wars being waged around the world. An annual survey by the Military Times last year revealed that just 25 percent approved of the job Obama was doing. Even less supported his strategy in Afghanistan or the unlawful “regime change” mission in Libya……
Some extremists are objecting to the Police State.
For years, it was not acceptable to speak of the evidence which showed clearly that a Police State was being built.
Now it is common knowledge.
The last four Presidents in particular have done serious damage to America and have prepared a Police State control grid operated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which DHS is now preparing to act in defense of the Federal mechanism as awakening citizens become enraged — and frightened!
How do we know? We don’t, of course. Campaigns and candidates evolve, and elections are dynamic events with more variables than can reasonably be distilled in an equation. But the data–based on a prediction engine created by Yahoo! scientists–suggest a second term is likely for the current president. This model does not use polls or prediction markets to directly gauge what voters are thinking. Instead, it forecasts the results of the Electoral College based on past elections, economic indicators, measures of state ideology, presidential approval ratings, incumbency, and a few other politically agnostic factors.
Republican Ron Paul said front-runner Mitt Romney’s inability to brush back challenges in votes Tuesday “opens up the door” to him and others looking to deny the former Massachusetts governor the party’s presidential nomination.
The Texas congressman was headed for a solid second-place in Minnesota’s caucuses, which were won by former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum. Santorum also won Missouri and was in the hunt for a victory in Colorado’s caucuses.
“I’m a little surprised.
I thought Romney would have some of this automatic carryover,” Paul told The Associated.
“It certainly doesn’t hurt us.”Paul was on course to capture more than a quarter of Minnesota’s vote.
He was a distant third in Missouri’s non-binding primary and far back in Colorado.
Ron Paul turns to Minnesota
February 5, 2012
Reporting from Washington— The last time Nevada Republicans caucused in a presidential contest, they delivered a stunning second-place finish to Texas Rep. Ron Paul, the libertarian-minded candidate who had been largely written off, averaging last place in polls leading up to caucus day.
The lesson was that Paul may not appeal to a broad base of voters, but the people who like him can be counted on to turn up and disproportionately represent themselves at caucus events, which typically draw few participants.
Four years later, Paul has turned the lesson of Nevada into a national campaign strategy, focusing his attention on caucus states where his loyal followers could keep him in the delegate hunt.
NH Bill Would Allow Service Refusal To Gay Couples

Lawmakers are debating a bill that would let a business refuse service to any couple, for any reason.
As a business owner, Tim Kierstead believes in the right to run his restaurant the way he sees fit.
“I think each business has the right to do as they choose,” he told WBZ-TV.
But as a gay man, he has a real problem with the new bill being proposed.
It would allow businesses to refuse service to a couple if they didn’t agree with their marriage.
The bill never specifically mentions gay marriage and opponents say it could be used to allow businesses to discriminate against anyone whose marriage they didn’t agree with.
“We’re certainly taking people’s freedoms away as we make more and more laws that force them to provide occupation or services that violate their beliefs,” Sapareto told WBZ.

Here is how it works: You invite a member of the Republican establishment – often a RINO, preferably a bimbo – to do battle with a lefty from similar circles. The sides are ideologically so close that, in all likelihood, the panelists hang out after the show.

How To Support Ron Paul (Display It!)
Recently by James E. Miller: Why Ron Paul Is Dominating
A friend of mine sent me the above picture the other day. This driver’s support of Congressman Ron Paul’s run for the presidency shows a passion unmatched by the proponents of opposing candidates. Can you imagine a Chevy Suburban decked out in “Herman Cain for President” memorabilia?
The lawyer for a woman who settled a sexual harassment complaint against Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain in the late 1990s says that Cain may have violated the confidentiality terms of the agreement by commenting on its specifics over the past 24 hours.
“Herman Cain and others have already disclosed that there was a confidential settlement,” says Joel P. Bennett, a Washington-based attorney specializing in employment law, who also represented the woman when she negotiated her settlement.
“I don’t know if she’ll ever go public,” he said Tuesday.
Without having the agreement in hand, Bennett says he doesn’t know what it specifically says about Cain’s obligations under the non-disparagement and confidentiality clauses.
“I haven’t seen the agreement” in a dozen years, he said. “I haven’t seen whether it goes both ways.”
But even if it doesn’t, Bennett says, “If an employer makes a confidential agreement, and then discloses it, there’s a reasonable assumption that the employer has waived the confidentiality part of the agreement.”
Bennett said his client, a graduate of an Ivy League university, worked in professional positions in government for many years before her tenure at the restaurant lobbying group, and does so currently.
Cain was at AEI to discuss his signature “9-9-9″ tax plan.

According to sources at the October 8, 2011 Lake County Republican Dinner, State Assemblyman Jim Nielsen was the guest speaker. Comments made during his speech were so preposterous it made some members of the audience wonder if he was becoming delusional and questioned his mental health..
…..IMHO, President Obama should consider this idea from Mr.Chapman about NOT running for a second term, in the BEST INTERESTS of the United States. But considering that President Obama has “an ego the size of Texas” and in most likelihood WILL NOT CONSIDER this simple request of Mr. Chapman of the Chicago Tribune, look for a HUGH TURNING OF THEIR BACKS of President Obama’s most liberal base come November of 2012 for the simple reason that the era of President Barack Hussein Obama is one BIG FAILURE……
…”Listen, the President and I have a very good relationship. We get along fine,” said Boehner. “But, we come from two different worlds. I come to this job as a small business person who felt that government was too big, spent too much, and was out of control; and I still look at myself as that same person. The president comes from a different ideology. And while we have a good relationship sometimes the conversations that we have would be like two groups of people from two different planets…….

Even as the Obama administration admonishes the United Nations for an “unwarranted” pay hike for staffers, it is going to bat for the United Nations against proposed legislation proposed in Congress that would revolutionize the way America finances international institutions and give Washington better leverage over them.
Proponents of the legislation, offered today by the chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Republican of Florida, say that no matter how hard the administration fights against it, the current political climate presents an opportunity to rethink how American taxpayers finance Turtle Bay.
“This is the only way to create real reform, especially given U.S. budgetary stringency,” the former ambassador to the U.N., John Bolton, told the Sun. “This is the time to act,” he added. “The State Department may lobby hard” against Ms. Ros-Lehtinen’s proposal, “but the times they are a changin’.”
Mr. Bolton has long advocated reforming the way America pays its dues to the world body. He has called for Washington to finance only those U.N. units and programs it deems to advance America’s interests, rather than pay according to an assessment made by the General Assembly. His initiative is widely considered the basis for Ms. Ros-Lehtinen’s bill.
State Department officials say that voluntary-based U.N. dues would cut the amount of American contribution to the U.N. by half and undercut its world leadership….

The irksome hitch in Rick Perry’s ‘git-a-long’
The irksome hitch in Rick Perry’s ‘git-a-long’:
So the mainstream media doesn’t like what my late Auntie Edie would call the “little hitch in Rick Perry’s ‘git-a-long’ ”.
It really grates on those feverish AP scribes who like to portray Perry’s git-a-long as an outright “swagger”.
“Perry exudes confidence, swagger on Campaign Trail”. (AP, Aug. 18, 2011). And just to think the peanut gallery thought exuding confidence out on the campaign trail was what presidential candidates were supposed to do!
Then there’s the call out to strippers, escorts, just a “young hottie”, potential blackmailers and the like by the Committee Against Sexual Hypocrisy in an ad hominem Internet ad asking, “Have you ever had sex with Rick Perry?”
In their dreams, as time will likely prove.
They’re covering Rick Perry in the cowboy icon and recent history has already proven that only Mamas dare to love cowboys.
It’s open season on Republican, Conservative and Tea Party presidential candidates, and we expect the jackals in the mainstream media to be gathering to take pot shots between sips of latte at whomever turns up to take on their hero Barack Obama.

Gibbs Scolds Perry, Raises Issue of Texas Secession Comments — with Video:
“Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs lashed out against Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Tuesday, saying it was a “remarkable turnaround” for the Republican presidential candidate to say he was passionate about America just a few years after he was talking about the possibility of Texas seceding from the U.S. The current White House spokesman, Jay Carney, also took issue with comments Perry made on Monday, warning that political candidates have to be careful about what they say.
Question For U.S. The House of Representatives
Just a thought | July 22, 2011 | me
Posted on Friday, July 22, 2011 7:21:03 PM by Yosemitest
Is it time for THE CONGRESS
to have a Vote of NO CONFIDENCE in Barack Obama?
he new Gang of Six proposal brewing in the Senate is a total sellout which promises to usher in a vast new round of new taxes. Not just closing of loopholes, but real live taxes we will all have to pay.
The proposal is based on the recommendations of the Bowles-Simpson Deficit Reduction Commission as modified by the “Gang of Six” US Senators. It plans to raise $1 trillion in new tax revenues. While the gang is vague on the details of the new taxes, the Bowles-Simpson Commission was quite clear – it proposes the virtual elimination of all tax deductions, certainly for taxpayers with joint incomes of over $200,000 and possibly for everyone. The revenues it would generate from eliminating or sharply curtailing the mortgage interest, charitable, and state and local tax deductions are set to generate $1 trillion of new revenues over ten years and to finance a vague and unspecified hoped for cut in the top tax bracket.
The elimination or significant curtailment of these deductions would have a ruinous economic impact.
Cutting out the mortgage interest deduction would cost American taxpayers almost $100 billion a year. It would decimate the already moribund real estate sector and would make their current homes unaffordable for millions of homeowners by changing the financial rules in the middle of the game.
Restricting or eliminating the state and local tax deduction is, in effect, to levy a 25-35 percent surcharge on state and local taxes – income and property – hammering people who live in high tax states. The cost in jobs and state revenues are likely to be staggering.
Limiting the charitable donation deduction is the unkindest cut of all since it hurts precisely the poor people Obama and the Democrats say they most want to help. They apparently only favor help to the poor when it comes through the government and buys their votes.
But the most dangerous part of the proposal is that to establish a commission to monitor the deficit reduction measures to assure that they unfold as planned. Senator Kent Conrad (D-ND), Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, has been pushing this idea for more than a year now hoping to equip the commission with automatic authority to cut spending and to raise taxes without legislative authorization. It would allow a tax increase without requiring any member of Congress to vote for it.
The House has taken a bold and important step in passing the “Cut, Cap and Balance” plan to deal with the deficit. By cutting spending, capping it as a proportion of GDP, and passing a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution, the House Republicans have put the perfect plan on the table. They should not blink in the face of the Senate proposal but should stand up and demand that their leadership not be gulled into signing on to any variation of the Gang of Six plan.
One hopes that the Republican voters in the states the Republican accomplices of Conrad represent remember their decision to cast their lots with the Democratic members of the Gang to derail the House proposal and to add momentum to this monstrous deal. They are: Senator Mike Crapo of Idaho, Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, Senator Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, and Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee. They all deserve a primary when they run again.

Bookmark and Share As the national political maneuvering for a nominee to oppose President Obama in 2012 slowly gains momentum, many in New Jersey are looking not only at changing the direction we are currently headed in by replacing one leader for another in the White House. They are also looking to help turn this nation around by replacing one of the individuals who represents our state in the U.S. Senate. And the man they seek to do that with is Judge Andrew Napolitano.
As such, today one grassroots Republican activist has introduced a website that intends to test the waters in an attempt to draft Judge Napolitano in to next year’s U.S. Senate race.
Anthony Del Pellegrino the creator of DraftNapolitanoNJ.wordpress.com states that this campaign to draft Judge Andrew Napolitano to run for the U.S. Senate from New Jersey “is a manifestation of disatisfaction with a political process that has become controlled by career politicians.” He adds that this campaign to draft Judge Andrew Napolitano to run for the U.S. Senate from New Jersey is based on three basic factors.
The dissatisfaction with the state Republican Party’s inability to recruit and nominate candidates who have been able to mount truly viable campaigns for the U.S. Senate, and the inability of those candidates who were nominated to effectively articulate the case against the liberal policies of those who currently hold the state’s two U.S. Senate seats.
Our belief that Judge Andrew Napolitano is a leader who has a true understanding of what is wrong in America and why we are headed in the wrong direction.
The understanding that Judge Napolitano has the proven ability to rise above partisan politics and the political rhetoric, and advance the cause of creating a responsible but limited federal government.
According to Del Pellegrino, defeating Democrat incumbent Bob Menendez in 2012 is essential to advancing a limited, constitutional based, government and defeating Menendez is just as important to the future of our nation as is who we elect for President in 2012.
“The balance of power could be held in the hands of New Jersey where, depending on whether Republican win the vice president’s tie-breaking vote in 2013 or not, Republicans could pick up the third or fourth seat they need to wrest control of the United States senate away from the liberal led Democrat majority that currently exists and which Menendez is a part of” , said Del Pellegrino.
At the moment the G.O.P. is poised to go through an election cycle inwhich they could easily win seats currently held by Democrats in North Dakota, Nebraska, Montana, and Missouri. They also have a good chance to win Virginia, New Mexico and Wisconsin. But a defeat of former Governor Jon Corzine’s hand picked successor, Bob Menendez, could insure Republicans control of the senate.
“In the recent past, New Jersey Republicans have failed to nominate a candidate strong enough to defeat Menendez. Instead they ran with establishment candidates who were career politicians and only offered New Jersey voters the opportunity to replace one career politician for another”, said Del Pellegrino.
New Jersey has not elected a Republican to the U.S. Senate since 1972 and some believe that the current slate of possible candidates for the Republican senate nomination have little chance of breaking that drought. Yet they do believe that Andrew Napolitano, a former New Jersey Superior Court justice, can.
Judge Napolitano, who is currently the chief judicial analyst for FOX News, represents all the principles that voters reinforced in the 2010 midterm elections.
Andrew Napolitano is a devout scholar of the United States Constitution, and understands that it is a document that is being abused and circumvented by power-hungry legislators in a runaway legislative process. His respect for the law and the founding principles of our nation are unsurpassed and is only part of a solid foundation for representing the people of New Jersey in the United States.
Unlike Bob Menendez and more so than any of the other current potential 2012 G.O.P. senate nominees, Judge Napolitano knows that government can not be effective or sustained by spending more than it has. He also knows that it does not serve the people by reaching in to their pockets and spending their money on unsustainable federal programs that cost more than they are worth. Andrew Napolitano truly understands that the government which governs best, governs the least and he knows that the true greatness of this nation is based not in its federal bureaucracy, but its people.
For these reasons, today the Draft Judge Andrew Napolitano for U.S. Senate effort begins.

“Is this satire?”
Senator Rand Paul slams GOP for blocking efforts to amend PATRIOT Act: “Freshman Republican Senator Rand Paul (KY) lashed out at the leadership of his own party, blaming them for preventing debate on the extension of the PATRIOT Act, which the Senate passed Thursday.
“I’ve been working for two long days filibustering the PATRIOT Act in hopes that we can have a constitutional debate over certain provisions of it and we can try to reform it to take away some of the encroachments on our freedoms,” Paul told CNN.
“Unfortunately, what we’re finding now is that the Democrats have agreed to allow me to have amendments but my own party is refusing to allow me to debate or present my amendments.”
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Paul (R-KY) introduced an amendment to the PATRIOT Act on Monday that attempted to safeguard American’s civil liberties by increasing oversight of government surveillance powers.
The Leahy-Paul amendment [PDF] would have required an expansion of public reporting on the use of surveillance powers granted by the PATRIOT Act. It would also require the government to prove a suspect was linked to a foreign group or power before being able to obtain highly sensitive records.

How Obama’s incompetence, Bin Laden’s death and Karl Rove will combine to elect Donald Trump

A few things will result from the killing of Bin Laden:
B) liberals will now pour money into Obama’s re-election;
C) both of these factors will scare away Republicans;
D) Karl Rove and others will offer the brief jump in Obama’s numbers as more proof of their insistence that Obama is unbeatable which will scare a few more Republicans away; and
E) this will leave only Donald Trump, a man who succeeds by making his own luck, as the beneficiary of Rove’s self serving pronouncements and the GOP panic it will bring about.
The killing of Bin Laden on Obama’s watch will lead to Donald Trump’s nomination and election. Only a decision by Trump himself can change that.

HERMAN CAIN STATEMENT ON OSAMA BIN LADEN ASSASSINATION
As Americans, we mark this occasion with a somber sense of satisfaction for the families, friends and loved ones who still suffer the pain of irreplaceable loss of life. Justice has been served.
We all owe a deep and abiding gratitude to the men and women in uniform and throughout our intelligence agencies for placing themselves in harm’s way to protect our way of life, while defending the honor and memory of their fellow citizens.
Although eradicating terrorism and those that would carry out its cowardly and despicable ends is far from over, we pause at this time to reflect on the events of September 11, 2001 and pray that those lost on that day know they are far from forgotten by their country.
For them and for America’s future, we remain ever vigilant.

..snip..But as dangerous as are Obama’s self-delusions and extremist ideology, those aren’t the only reasons to fear for the country. We also have reason to fear because his opposition cannibalizes itself. It spends more time arguing over whether its leaders are being “tough” enough with regard to one seventy-fifth of the budget than it does in figuring out how to evict Obama from office.
It spends more time arguing over whether a cut in budget authority is a real cut (it most certainly is) or a “fake” cut than it spends explaining and publicizing why its own budget, the Ryan plan, would mark a huge advance in individual freedom, prosperity, and fiscal survivability. It spends more time freaking out and engaging in internal warfare than it spends keeping its eye on the ball, long-term.
With a needlessly fractious opposition like this, Obama and Nancy Pelosi and Elena Kagan and all the government-firsters in their ranks may well survive their own deep unpopularity. They may survive their own fecklessness. They may survive their own, abundantly evident hypocrisy, and may survive their own ineptness. They may do so because their opposition — the activists who carry the ball for the majority of Americans who are basically center-right, basically market-oriented, basically individualist — is so pathetically unable to get its act together.

It’s a political trick older than time, take your weakness and make your opponent fear it. Thereby they will be prone to avoid it and not use it against you.
What is true is the issue of Barry Hussein Soetoro’s ineligibility started in 2008 by a Democrat who didn’t want Barry nominated for the Democrat candidate for President because word was that he was not a Natural Born Citizen as required by the Constitution of the United States of America.
This concerned Democrat thought that if the Democrat Party put an ineligible candidate forth and if he received the Democrat nomination that would be ruinous for the Democrat Party. (see Democrats and Obama Knowing are causing a Constitutional crisis for Change)
The former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations—and possible GOP candidate in 2012—tells Lloyd Grove of his decidedly undiplomatic solution to the crisis in Libya: Assassinate the dictator. Plus, Babak Dehghanpisheh reports from Libya on the rebels’ key victory in Ajdabiya. Former ambassador John Bolton, President Bush’s decidedly undiplomatic envoy to the United Nations who is considering running for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, has a decidedly undiplomatic solution to the crisis in Libya: The United States should terminate Muammar Gaddafi with extreme prejudice.
Speaking Saturday afternoon in Des Moines, Iowa, at Republican Rep. Steve King’s Conservative Principles Conference—a cattle call for presidential prospects in the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses—Bolton said: “Our military has a wonderful euphemism called ‘national command authority.’ It’s a legitimate military target. In Libya, Muammar Gaddafi is the national command authority. I think that’s the answer right there.” The red-meat applause line produced for Bolton, the longest of long-shots in the presidential contest, a rousing ovation from about 600 conservative activists filling up the grand ballroom at the Des Moines Marriott. “I think he’s a legitimate target,” the white-mustachioed Bolton told me after his speech. “That’s what Reagan did in 1986″—when U.S. jets bombed Gaddafi’s residence in Tripoli, killing his young daughter, in response to a lethal terrorist bombing in Germany—”and that would end the regime right there. He has murdered innocent American civilians.
He has never faced responsibility for it. So I don’t have any hesitation in saying that.”

Montana, America’s last best place, is looking to legislate three very common sense initiatives that point the entire country in the right direction. With its Democratic Governor and two Democratic U.S. Senators, Montana’s Republican legislature plans to introduce a broad state nullification act that will block any federal law considered by Montanans to be unconstitutional.
House Bill No. 382 sponsored by Rep. Derek Skees is titled “An act prohibiting infringement of the state of Montana’s constitutional right to nullification of any federal statute, mandate, or executive order considered unconstitutional by the state.” The bill even provides for a retroactive date for its application.
This bill is being championed by MG Paul Vallely (ret.) a Bigfork native, heads up the Patriots Union which has distributed this bill model to 30 state legislatures through a large patriots network of conservatives. MT Bill No. 382 is based on the format of the Model State Nullification Reaffirmation Act of Wyoming.
A notion of a well regulated militia as covered by our U.S. Constitution also is taking shape in Montana’s halls of state governance. House Bill No. 278, sponsored by Rep. Wendy Warburton of Havre, calls for “home guards” of legally authorized law abiding Montanans to answer to the governor and sheriffs during emergencies.
Citing the Katrina debacle of un-preparedness, Warbuton says the “slow response and poor organization” during major disasters prompted her to sponsor this bill. “Really the bill is just about local volunteers being prepared in case of emergency to support the National Guard, support the sheriff, support the governor as needed.” she said. ….
The wonderful Code of the West is the third……. Living each day with courage, taking pride in your daily work, and always finishing what you start seem like a plan to me.

Florida Legislature proves once and for all that it is for sale ~ “The Florida Legislature proved this past week, once and for all, that it is the utter Whore of Babylon. It is now legal in our state to pay off the Legislature directly”
These are harsh words for a Sunday morning, but the occasion screams out for them. I take them from the Bible; please forgive me.
It is now legal in our state to pay off the Legislature directly. Who says so? The Legislature.
This is not a joke.
This is not satire.
This is Florida — where the laws of our democracy are now openly, officially For Sale.
On Thursday afternoon, with greedy lip-smacking speed, the Legislature voted to relegalize a bygone and corrupt institution, outlawed in this state for more than two decades, known as “leadership funds.”
