THE CONSTITUTION, OLD TESTAMENT, NEW TESTAMENT AND PRAYER

In recent days I have been reading The Constitution of the United States, something I wish all members of the Congress, the Supreme Court, the Vice President and the President would do. I would, of course, want them to read and study it in much greater depth than I have done.

I am convinced, by some of their decisions, that most of these national leaders have read and studied it very little and lack a basic understanding of what it is about and the context in which it was written.

A ‘Keener’ Whiff of Revolution ~Timothy Baldwin, J.D.

A ‘Keener’ Whiff of Revolution
Right Side News ^ | April 28, 2010 | Timothy Baldwin, J.D.

Posted on Thursday, April 29, 2010 2:15:45 AM by 2ndDivisionVet

Columnist, Alan Caruba, wrote a recent article entitled, “A Whiff of Revolution,” in which he generally describes the people of the United States as being fed up and disgusted with federal politics.[1] Caruba rightly compares the actions by the federal government (particularly under Obama) to the actions by Great Britain just before the America Revolution, stating that “[i]t is the antithesis of a nation of laws, a republic.” Caruba predicts that Americans will eventually take this matter of freedom back into their own hands once again:

“If, between now and the midterm elections, the President and Congress pass the Cap-and-Trade Act and an amnesty for illegal aliens, I SUSPECT THAT SOME AMERICANS MAY NOT BE CONTENT TO SIT BY WHILE STATES AND THE COURTS WORK THEIR WAY WITHIN THE CONSTITUTION. They will sense-and rightfully so-a despotism never before associated with the presidency.” (emphasis added)

Caruba makes some valid points in his article and accurately describes a feeling of revolution prevalent throughout the country. However, I believe that a more thoughtful analysis must be attributed to what a real and successful revolution will compose.

WASHINGTON — The liberals hate the middle class. There, I said it, and I am glad. Once again I am a truth teller, in this case speaking truth to stone heads. So certain am I of the truth of my asseveration that I honestly doubt any liberal will take issue with me. Can you imagine a liberal coming forward and saying: “Wrong, Tyrrell! I love the middle class.” Well, I guess I can imagine it, because liberals are effortless liars. Yet what specifically about the middle class might the liberals adduce to demonstrate their affection? The middle class’ sobriety? Hard work? Love of country? Love of liberty?

After reading Robert Moon’s article in the Conservative Examiner, yesterday and watching the Glenn Beck video you will see how our elected representatives are moving under the cover of smoke and using mirrors to deflect our attention to issues like financial reform. HR 2499, being voted on today, if passed it will force a yes or no vote in Puerto Rico…if passed, the trigger is pulled on the second question….bringing in the “Tennessee Plan” path to statehood. Statehood adds millions of votes, 2 Senators, and more. Its all there.

Abusive relationships are more difficult to end than healthy ones. Our relationship to a president who lies to us and betrays the sovereignty of the nation is, unquestionably, abusive. Bonds formed through traumatic events are far more durable than bonds forged via healthy interactions. The toady press has a great deal invested in Obama.

People outside of the abusive relationship always ask why the victim doesn’t just leave. Once you’ve been worked over by an abusive narcissist, you no longer have the will to escape. Remember, the abuser has done so much fogging that the victim comes to believe that his behavior is entirely normal. Many victims become convinced that they themselves cause the abuse. Some are persuaded that they are the abusive ones and their poor innocent partners are the ones in need of compassion.

If you’ve never seen the original version of “Gaslight”, this would be a good time to take a look at it.

Former CBS newsman, Bernie Goldberg correctly refers to the relationship between the mainstream press and Obama as a “slobbering love affair.” It’s embarrassing.

Fortunately, victims can finally get to the point at which the abuse becomes intolerable and reach out for help:

Obama and the media actually have a surprisingly hostile relationship — as contentious on a day-to-day basis as any between press and president in the past decade, reporters who cover the White House say.

The Politico goes on to describe the character of an abusive narcissist:

MichelleMalkin.com ^ | 04/28/2010 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on Wednesday, April 28, 2010 9:43:24 AM by Rational Thought

Mexican President Felipe Calderon has accused Arizona of opening the door “to intolerance, hate, discrimination and abuse in law enforcement.” But Arizona has nothing on Mexico when it comes to cracking down on illegal aliens. While open-borders activists decry new enforcement measures signed into law in “Nazi-zona” last week, they remain deaf, dumb or willfully blind to the unapologetically restrictionist policies of our neighbors to the south.

The Arizona law bans sanctuary cities that refuse to enforce immigration laws, stiffens penalties against illegal alien day laborers and their employers, makes it a misdemeanor for immigrants to fail to complete and carry an alien registration document, and allows the police to arrest immigrants unable to show documents proving they are in the U.S. legally. If those rules constitute the racist, fascist, xenophobic, inhumane regime that the National Council of La Raza, Al Sharpton, Catholic bishops and their grievance-mongering followers claim, then what about these regulations and restrictions imposed on foreigners?

Behold and listen to Obama, the master of Alinsky-like smooth talk, expounding about the misguided State of Arizona in one sentence, and the “failure” of the federal government to secure our borders in the next. His words are carefully crafted to make us feel good. The actions never match the words:

In 1942 Volkischer Beobachter was a state-controlled newspaper in Germany. Any news that the German people consumed through that outlet was dictated and filtered through the Nazi Party. In the mid-20th Century Pravda was the state-controlled news source for the people who lived in the Soviet Union. Likewise, anything the Soviet citizens got to read was funneled through Stalin, Kruschev and the Communist Party. News agencies became an arm of the state, serving to misinform the public and thereby advance the agenda of the regimes.

When Obama sold us out with his dangerous proclamation that America won’t use nuclear weapons against countries unless they have nuclear weapons to fire back at us, patriots who love America were shocked. Now newly released information, from a Wenzel Strategies survey of likely voters provides shocking data about America’s domestic enemies living among us: They’re Democrats; America be damned!

We’ve now read the Declaration of Independence as well as the Constitution in full. While it’s not heavy reading, it is certainly important reading, and I hope everyone has taken the time to not only read, but reflect on the words written by our founders.

The Declaration still stands as one of the greatest, most significant political documents of all time. It’s inspired mankind the world over to seek the Freedom and Liberty Nature’s Godalways intended him to have. Our Constitution remains the cornerstone of all Liberty and Freedom. It is the ideal blueprint for Civil Society, and when followed, allows for individual Freedom and great governmental restraint. It is the ultimate expression of Conservatism.

I cannot think of any other subject in recent American history that has been so mired in controversy, so factually misrepresented, mischaracterized and so misunderstood than the matter of the eligibility of Barack Hussein OBAMA II to hold the office of President of the United States. Despite its importance, the topic has been summarily dismissed as fodder for conspiracy theorists by many, while others insist that the question of OBAMA’s citizenship has been “asked and answered.” But has it really been answered, and if not, why not?

The British control of paper money in colonial America did not create disaster. The colonials had various ways of getting silver and gold, mostly from trade with French or Spanish islands in the Caribbean. By 1750 there was a coin circulation in the port cities, mostly foreign specie, which had a different value in the notional “sterling” of each colony. Exchange lists indicate that English shillings, French “guineas” (louis d’or), Spanish “ryals” and double “ryals” (eighth and quarter dollars), and “pistoles” (Spanish two-escudo pieces) were common, but almost any kind of precious metal coin then in the Atlantic world was passable. However, three-fourths of the hard money consisted of Spanish milled dollars. These carried a different value in local shillings, which had been frozen from Queen Anne’s proclamation.

There was also a large circulation of English half-pence and similar base-metal coins, genuine and counterfeit, which were called “coppers.”

Stifling our ability to hate is an act of moral masturbation

The importance of hate

By Klaus Rohrich  Tuesday, April 27, 2010

Mankind’s creator instilled some fairly important and in some cases fairly unpleasant checks and balances into organisms to ensure their chances for survival.  Among these checks and balances are emotions, which are felt at a visceral level and help organisms detect threats at a subconscious level through various senses.

//

Unlike the ability to reason, emotions in human beings are totally and completely irrational, yet tend to serve as powerful motivators for actions and reactions.  Hence the completely irrational act of falling in love, which happens at a level that totally negates reason and depends largely on pheromones, those elusive odors produced by males and females in their search for successful procreation.

Equally powerful and just as irrational is the emotion of hate.  Hate being the opposite of love holds every bit as much visceral power over individuals as does love, and exists to protect beings from their enemies.  Hate is closely tied to fear, another emotion susceptible to the irrational, but one that is essential to survival.  We hate those whom we fear because we perceive they may have intentions of harming us and the fear/hate response is a protective mechanism, allowing us to fight or flee from perceived threats.

How bizarre that modern Western society has turned hate into a criminal activity.  While it may seem civilized to have the ability to overcome one’s fears and see the point of view of those who would threaten our existence, it’s a sure-fire way to ensure your eventual destruction.  There are truly people in this world who are worthy of being hated and who should be feared as enemies.  Take Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, for instance, the squinty-eyed fundamentalist Muslim Iranian President who has promised to “wipe [the state of] Israel off the face of the earth”, and who views the West as his enemy.

Barack Obama has awakened a sleeping nation!

Gary Hubbell – Aspen Times Weekly

Barack Obama is the best thing that has happened to America in the last 100 years. Truly, he is the savior of America’s future. He is the best thing ever.

Despite the fact that he has some of the lowest approval ratings among recent presidents, history will see Barack Obama as the source of America’s resurrection. Barack Obama has plunged the country into levels of debt that we could not have previously imagined; his efforts to nationalize health care have been met with fierce resistance nationwide; TARP bailouts and stimulus spending have shown little positive effect on the national economy; unemployment is unacceptably high and looks to remain that way for most of a decade; legacy entitlement programs have ballooned to unsustainable levels, and there is a seething anger in the populace.

That’s why Barack Obama is such a good thing for America.

Obama is the symbol of a creeping liberalism that has infected our society like a cancer for the last 100 years. Just as Hitler is the face of fascism, Obama will go down in history as the face of unchecked liberalism. The cancer metastasized to the point where it could no longer be ignored.

Motorcyclist jailed for 26 hours for videotaping gun wielding cop  Uhler[1]

Maryland State Trooper Joseph David Uhler making a traffic stop

By Carlos Miller
After spending 26 hours in the Baltimore County Jail, Anthony Graber still doesn’t understand what he did wrong.

Sure, the 24-year-old man admits to speeding on his motorcycle, but does that merit having a plainclothes cop pull a gun on him?

Does that merit six state troopers raiding his parents’ home and seizing four computers at the crack of dawn?

Does that merit getting charged with a felony and threatened with five years in prison?

Of course it doesn’t

This is nothing but an obscene case of police intimidation. A Constitutional violation against a man who has served six years in the Air National Guard and who has never been arrested before.

A knee-jerk reaction from the Maryland State Police after Graber posted the video of the cop pulling a gun on him on Youtube (video is below).

That cop’s name is Joseph David Uhler, in case you were wondering. He has no business wearing a badge.

So how come he’s not being punished?

Well, we already know that answer. He’s above the law. They are above the law. The Maryland State Police Department, that is.

Why else would a judge sign a search warrant, allowing them to raid Graber’s parents home at 6:45 a.m. on a weekday, detaining his entire family for 90 minutes, forbidding his mother from going to work and younger sister from going to school while they rummaged through the family’s personal belongings?

And that judge’s name?

That’s a secret.

Motorcyclist jailed for 26 hours for videotaping gun wielding cop  140410banner4[2]

“There is no signature from the judge on the paperwork,” Graber said in an exclusive Photography is Not a Crime interview Thursday night, just hours after he was released from jail.

The Left’s War on Tea Partiers–Disqualifying humans on the basis of race….

The Left’s War on Tea Partiers–Disqualifying humans on the basis of race….
Frontpagemagazine ^ | 4-27-10 | Dennis Prager

Posted on Tuesday, April 27, 2010 7:43:04 AM by SJackson

Opponents of the popular expression of conservative opposition to big government, the tea party, regularly note that tea partiers are overwhelmingly white. This is intended to disqualify the tea parties from serious moral consideration.

But there are two other facts that are far more troubling:

The first is the observation itself. The fact that the Left believes that the preponderance of whites among tea partiers invalidates the tea party movement tells us much more about the Left than it does about the tea partiers.

It confirms that the Left really does see the world through the prism of race, gender and class rather than through the moral prism of right and wrong.

One of the more dangerous features of the Left has been its replacement of moral categories of right and wrong, and good and evil with three other categories: black and white (race), male and female (gender) and rich and poor (class).

Therefore the Left pays attention to the skin color — and gender (not just “whites” but “white males”) — of the tea partiers rather than to their ideas.

One would hope that all people would assess ideas by their moral rightness or wrongness, not by the race, gender or class of those who hold them. But in the world of the Left, people are taught not to assess ideas but to identify the race, class and gender of those who espouse those ideas. This helps explain the widespread use of ad hominem attacks by the Left: Rather than argue against their opponents’ ideas, the Left usually dismisses those making the argument disagreed with as “racist,” “intolerant,” “bigoted,” “sexist,” “homophobic” and/or “xenophobic.”

You’re against race-based affirmative action? No need to argue the issue because you’re a racist. You’re a tea partier against ever-expanding government? No need to argue the issue because you’re a racist.

As a Leftist rule of thumb — once again rendering intellectual debate unnecessary and impossible — white is wrong or bad, and non-white is right and good; male is wrong and bad, and female is right and good; and the rich are wrong and bad, and the poor right and good. For the record, there is one additional division on the Left — strong and weak — to which the same rule applies: The strong are wrong and bad, and the weak are right and good. That is a major reason for Leftist support of the Palestinians (weak) against the Israelis (strong), for example.

Rethinking Education. Maybe less really is more !
American Thinker ^ | 04/26/2010 | Bruce Walker

Posted on Monday, April 26, 2010 9:58:54 AM by SeekAndFind

One of the most reflexive responses of the left to any social problem is to blame under-funded education. What the left means by this, of course, is not really education but indoctrination, which is the primary purpose of public education and college education in America today. The vast transfer of wealth from parents and taxpayers to the public schools and universities is one of the most regressive sorts of social tariff in our society.

Public education from grades K through 12 gobbles up 38% of all state government spending. State and local spending on public education is more than $15,000 per pupil. Federal spending on public education was almost nonexistent a few decades ago, but now it is growing fast. America, in fact, spends more per capita on public education than almost any nation in the world. Are we getting much for that investment? Not according to test scores.

Higher education means both public universities and private universities. Taxpayers spend a lot of money to support public universities. Taxpayers, as parents footing the bill for tuition, pay a second part of the high cost of college. The cost per credit hour in the average university is about $300, or about $9,000 per college year. This expense has increased 1,000% over the last decade. Americans are “investing” an enormous amount of money in the education of our children. Is this wise policy? The conventional answer has been “yes,” but in several different ways, that answer should be rethought:

“The Awakening” returns, on Sentinel Radio, with Arlen and Hanen.

Why were Walter Fitzpatrick and Leo Haffey jailed, in two separate situations, in Tennessee? Why was Darren Huff just pulled-over and detained by the Tennessee state and county police?

Guests: Darren Huff, Leo Haffey, and Tim Harrington Listen tonight, Monday, 4/26 at 9-11pm ET (6-8pm PT)

You may use the widget at Investigating Obama, just below on this page… …or by visiting the Sentinel Radio page and chat room… …or call to listen, at 646-727-2652.

Why was Walter Fitzpatrick jailed in Tennessee, just weeks ago? For taking Grand Jury action regarding Barack Obama’s eligibility for the presidency? For attempting to make a citzen’s arrest? Of whom?

Why was Leo Haffey, in another Tennessee county, recently jailed for sixty days? Was he incarcerated without charges? Falsely labeled a mental patient? Who did this? How was he freed?

What do they have in common, besides their state of residence? Yes, both have been attempting processes of law, in their individual pursuits of what the believe to be constitutional justice, regarding the man who would be called President Obama.

Tim Harrington, a close associate and eyewitness, will tell Walter Fitzpatrick’s story. Leo Haffey will relate his own.

And if these stories were not odd enough, on just this past Tuesday, April 20, while Haffey happened to be a guest caller on the G. Gordon Liddy Program (special guests were eligibility objector, Lt. Col. Terry Lakin and his attorney – report and audio archive, here) a number of people were driving to a meeting with Walter Fitzpatrick. One of them was Darren Huff, who will introduce himself to you, tonight.

GORDON DUFF: STAGE BEING SET FOR “DIRTY BOMB” FALSE FLAG

“CHATTER” FLOWING IN FROM EVERYWHERE

“SUITCASE” NUKE SAID TO BE IN PLACE

By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor

Rumors of an upcoming terror attack to be blamed on Iran are moving around the world, “backchannel chatter.”  The primary suspect is Israel who is said to have a number of small “suitcase” type nuclear weapons, some primarily “dirty bombs,” possibly supplied secretly by a previous US administration.  These devices are in the “40 ton” range, highly radioactive, extremely small and can be engineered to leave the signature of a primitive device.  They were originally designed for use against Soviet armor and troop concentrations in Europe if a massed attack on NATO were to occur.  Current conventional systems have made this type of weapon obsolete.

We have been told that federal authorities have interviewed, on video, a prominent individual with specific knowledge of the possession of this type of weapon.

This won’t be in the news.  All that “every day folks” will see is a story here or one there that don’t make sense.  Why would “ultra-Liberal” Senator Chuck Schumer, nightmare “anti-gun” nut, extreme lefty and staunch New York democrat turn on the president?  In fact, why are extreme liberals and conservatives all attacking President Obama and, less visibly, our military leaders, all at the same time?  Who is orchestrating this oddest turn of political events in recent history?  Why would the Pentagon ban Reverend Billy Graham’s son from a prayer breakfast as an “Islamophobe?”

Breaking Update on Polish Air Disaster from Investigative Reporter

Breaking Update on Polish Air Disaster from Investigative Reporter
Conservative Examiner ^ | 4/25/2010 | Anthony G. Martin

Tensions are mounting in Poland as the rank-and-file citizens express growing suspicion that current Polish politicians and Russian officials are engaged in a cover-up of the real story behind the air disaster that killed a large number of top government officials, including the President.

As reported yesterday, Jane Burgermeister has uncovered evidence showing small caliber gun-fire at the scene of the crash and discrepancies between the official Russian version of the disaster and the information recovered in the ‘black box’ voice recorders from the plane.

Today, Burgermeister issues a breaking updated report indicating that Poland’s Prime Minister, Donald Tusk, is on the defensive in the wake of an onslaught of public discontent over the manner in which the government has handled information concerning the crash.

The Polish opposition party has called for an international investigation:

Am. Fed. of Teachers is helping ACORN destroy America
The Collins Report ^ | April 25, 2010 | Kevin “Coach” Collins

Posted on Sunday, April 25, 2010 9:21:49 AM by jmaroneps37

Like the Nazis jumping to help the Japanese during World War II the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) rushed emergency funds to their anti American allies in ACORN when it got caught on tape coaching a “pimp and his main girl” on how to game the system.

The AFT sent ACORN $352,510 to help mitigate the damage caused when the skunks were exposed offering instructions on faking information on bogus loan applications, running a brothel and employing child prostitutes Americans for Limited Government (ALG) has reported.

The ALG says the AFT used the cover story of needing the thugs at ACORN to perform union related organizing work in an attempt to sanitize the transfer. Obviously the AFT was able to put aside any concerns about dealing with people who support child prostitution and see the “greater good” of aiding fellow travelers.

The AFT is not the only teachers’ organization funding the destruction of our country through financial contributions to ACORN. An examination of Department of Labor records reveals AFL-CIO controlled teachers unions have given $1.3 million to ACORN in recent years. How this proves they are living up to their mission of advocacy for children isn’t clear.

Until the expose proving ACORN’s criminal nature, corporate and private donors could insist they didn’t know what was going on. Since the videos were released many have stopped giving ACORN money, which makes the AFT’s donations so disgusting.

A Thousand More Days of Damage
Canada Free Press ^ | 24 April 2010 | Alan Caruba

Posted on Saturday, April 24, 2010 1:23:26 PM by K-oneTexas

On Saturday, April 24, President Barack Hussein Obama, will have one thousand days left in which to ruin America.

As we know from his first fifteen months in office, he is capable of doing a lot of damage. This is rather extraordinary insofar as he only had 142 days as a U.S. Senator before he was inaugurated.

He has had the support of a majority of Democrats in the House and Senate, but he has set the agenda. The result is trillions of dollars of debt, despite the fact that the banks and investment houses, as well as General Motors, have all paid back the TARP funds they received.

Who would have ever believed that a majority of American voters would elect a President who hates America?

Birthers and Perkins V Elg

Posted on Saturday, April 24, 2010 12:18:10 PM by Mr Rogers

I’m not a lawyer, nor do I play one, so what follows is just IMHO on how the case of Perkins v Elg affects the definition of natural born citizen. I offer it, not as definitive, but as evidence that the Supreme Court has ruled in the past in a way that might well lead to its ruling in favor of Obama, if the case is based on the citizenship of Obama’s presumptive father.

The facts as stated in the decisions:

“The question is whether the plaintiff, Marie Elizabeth Elg. who was born in the United States of Swedish parents then naturalized here, has lost her citizenship and is subject to deportation because of her removal during minority to Sweden, it appearing that her parents resumed their citizenship in that country but that she returned here on attaining majority with intention to remain and to maintain her citizenship in the United States.

Posted on Saturday, April 24, 2010 12:22:19 PM by UCFRoadWarrior

A retired Army general and national-security-policy expert says Lt. Col. Terry Lakin has “a valid point” and should use his “right to discovery” to force the Obama administration to produce proof of his natural-born-citizenship status.

In an interview with Evil Conservative Radio, Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely said, “I think many in the military – and many out of the military – question the natural-birth status of Barack Obama. … I’m not convinced that he is [a natural-born citizen].”

Vallely, CEO of Stand Up America U.S., graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and was commissioned in the Army in 1961, serving 32 years.

My question is when are the states going to stand up and say, “No more?” If they don’t stand up on Tenth Amendment grounds, which would be the right thing to do, why don’t they stand up on selfish grounds? Their politicians, they’re losing power. When are these state guys going to say enough?

What happened to the America we all once knew and loved? The land of – baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet. The land of the free and the home of the brave. A country where its citizens felt safe and happy and proud to proclaim, “God bless America!” It seems like those noble ideals which made our country strong and great are fast slipping away and being replaced by the strange and bizarre. As some of our readers may recall, the Bizarro World was a fictitious planet in the DC comics universe, first appearing in the early 1960s. In the world of “Htrae” (“Earth” spelled backwards), society is ruled by the Bizarro Code which states, “Us do opposite of all Earthly things! Us hate beauty! Us love ugliness! Is big crime to make anything perfect on Bizarro World!”

Advocates For Gay Troops Target Sens. Warner And Webb


By Bill Sizemore, The Virginian-Pilot


NORFOLK–Advocates of repealing the “don’t ask, don’t tell” law prohibiting open military service by gays and lesbians are focusing their efforts on legislators in six critical states, including Virginia, where they say their fight will be won or lost.

Prominent in their cross-hairs are Virginia’s two middle-of-the-road Democratic senators, Jim Webb and Mark Warner, neither of whom has yet taken a position on the issue.

Webb in particular – a Vietnam War veteran, former Navy secretary and member of the Senate Armed Services Committee – will play a key role as Congress takes up the matter.

For nearly 13 years, the irreverent — to put it mildly — cartoon show “South Park” has ridiculed every sacred convention in the book, from major religions and celebrities to gays and the physically disabled.

Nearly every bit of over-the-top satire has outraged someone or some group and prompted calls for the show to be boycotted or even banned.

And each time, for better or for worse, the program’s network, Comedy Central, has stood firmly behind creator-producers Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

Except when it comes to Islam and the prophet Mohammed.

The Silent Killer: Obama’s VAT Proposal
Townhall.com ^ | April 24. 2010 | Dick Morris and Eileen McGann

Posted on Saturday, April 24, 2010 8:00:06 AM by Kaslin

When conservatives like Neal Boortz proposed the “fair tax” (a levy on consumption, not on income), we should have known that the Barack Obama left would seize on the proposal not as Boortz intended it to be — a replacement for the income tax — but as an addition to it. Now Obama has let it be known that the value-added tax, or VAT, is “on the table” as he casts about for taxes to lock in his gigantic levels of federal spending.

At stake, of course, is our free-market system. When Obama took office, federal, state and local spending accounted for 30 percent of gross domestic product. Now it is up to 35 percent, and when health care is fully implemented, it will rise to above 40 percent. But taxes are still below 30 percent. The difference is the deficit, now grown to 10 percent of our GDP.

If our government is to continue spending 40 percent of our GDP, we will morph into the European model of a socialist democracy. But if we can roll the spending back to 30 percent, while holding taxes level, we will retain our free market system.

In 2011, we will have three choices:

– Raise taxes up to 40 percent.

– Cut spending down to 30 percent.

– Or half and half.

Now Obama proposes the ultimate step to convert us into a European nation: the VAT.

“The decision to initiate potential court-martial proceedings against Col. Lakin represents a line in the sand for the Army, …”

‘Birther’ Soldier Faces Charges

By Yochi J. Dreazen
The Army filed formal changes against Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, a military physician who refused to deploy to Afghanistan because he believes President Barack Obama hasn’t proven that he was born in the U.S.

The decision to initiate potential court-martial proceedings against Col. Lakin represents a line in the sand for the Army, which declined to discipline a pair of officers who raised similar questions last year about Mr. Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve as commander in chief.
Chuck Dasey, a spokesman for Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, said Col. Lakin was being charged with three counts of disobeying a lawful order and one count of dereliction of duty. If found guilty, Col. Lakin could be kicked out of the Army, forced to give up his retirement benefits and jailed for up to four years.

Col. Lakin and his attorney didn’t respond to phone messages or emails seeking comment. In a statement released through the foundation raising money for his legal-defense fund, the officer said he was prepared to press his case in court.

“I invited my court martial, and today I stand ready to answer these charges,” Col. Lakin said. “I was prepared to deploy if only the president would authorize the release of the proof of his eligibility. He refused, and now the court will determine the issue, and my fate.”

The White House long ago stopped commenting on issues about the president’s citizenship.

The military’s decision to pursue disciplinary measures against Col. Lakin, a doctor at Walter Reed, is likely to turn his case into a cause célèbre
for certain elements of the political right. Conservative figures such as G. Gordon Liddy have rallied behind Col. Lakin and urged their supporters to contribute to his legal-defense fund.

Lest I be accused of extremism or racism, I’ll allow the president to define himself. The video is heavily edited, but no other president has ever come close to showing such an affinity for Islam while minimizing our Judeo-Christian heritage in every way possible.

[www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCAffMSWSzY&feature=player_embedded]

Interesting that Obama takes the opportunity to defend Islam and chide those who would restrict the opportunity for Muslims to worship freely. He, meanwhile, has no qualms about limiting Christian opportunities, such as the National Day of Prayer.

The father of one of my students has done a great deal of studying and writing on Islam and its attempt to influence the United States, particularly in recent years. His website and his book can be found at http://www.blowthetrumpetintl.com

A Tale of Carriers Investing in Slide Rules

April 23, 2010

Fred will be on travel until May 4, after which he will again engage in treason and perfidy.

I wonder whether Americans realize that they have a Vienna-sausage military at filet-mignon prices. The sorry performance in recent wars is just one example of the ongoing rot, but the whole enterprise has become unbalanced, aimed at fighting the kinds of enemies we don’t have instead of the ones we have recently chosen to make.

The Navy is a fine example. The carrier battle group, the heart of the Navy, is a hugely expensive way to get relatively few combat aircraft to a remote place. It is a relic of World War II, for which it was well suited. Since it was then fighting similar battle groups, the strengths and weaknesses were more or less matched.

But the Navy has not fought a war for sixty years, certainly not one it needed to win, and it shows. Today’s battle groups, CVBGs as we say, are almost indistinguishable from those of 1945, except for the upgrading of weapons. Instead of five-inch-thirty-eights, we have Standard missiles. Instead of F4F Hellcats, the F-18 Hornet.
