On April 17, the Courier-Journal in Louisville, Kentucky, reported on a military exercise dubbed Mangudai, named after the special forces of Genghis Khans Mongol army who could fight for days without food or sleep. The Kentucky newspaper portrayed the exercise as an effort to train soldiers to battle the Taliban in Afghanistan.
Designed to test the limits of officers physical, mental and emotional endurance, the emerging Army exercise offered a revealing window onto modern combat training in the era of Iraq and Afghanistan, Chris Kenning wrote for the newspaper. Over three days last week, participants had to crawl on their bellies under real machine-gun fire, shimmy commando-style over a single rope high in the air and march for more than 22 miles through forests.
But according to information received by The Patriot Post blog, there is another aspect to the military exercises not reported by local media.

A grim report circulating in the Kremlin today written by Russia’s Northern Fleet is reporting that the United States has ordered a complete media blackout over North Korea’s torpedoing of the giant Deepwater Horizon oil platform owned by the World’s largest offshore drilling contractor Transocean that was built and financed by South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Ltd., that has caused great loss of life, untold billions in economic damage to the South Korean economy, and an environmental catastrophe to the United States.

Judicial Supremacy and the Constitution
We need to reclaim the Constitution from the Supreme Court.
Many Americans are puzzled and angry about the judicial assault on religion, morality, and common sense that has been going on for the past few decades. People wonder, for example, how the First Amendment (which guarantees freedom of religion as well as separation of church and state) could possibly require the expulsion of religion from public life, or outlaw prayers at high-school football games and graduation ceremonies. To answer questions like these, one must understand how federal judges got the power to make such controversial political decisions in the first place, and how the judges used that power to bludgeon the American citizenry into believing that their power was legitimate.
Plato tells us in the Republic that democracies will always succumb to tyranny. The Framers of our Constitution certainly troubled themselves to prevent that from happening here, but the anti-Federalist who wrote under the name Brutus did not believe they had gone far enough — especially when it came to the Supreme Court. Though Alexander Hamilton described the Court as the “least dangerous branch,” Brutus thought that the Court would eventually expand its own power and, in the process, enable the national government to expand its power at the expense of the states.

The following column is not a fairy tale. I only wish that it were. Some years ago, an advertisement against alcoholism ran on television. In the Ad, an elephant was depicted bumping into and breaking furniture in a living room while the resident occupants ignored it. But eventually, try as they might, they could not. Suffice it to say, the Ad depicted Americans’ reluctance to deal with severe and glaringly obvious problems within their families. But, try as we will, eventually elephants can and will no longer be ignored.
Today, there are now so many elephants in the USA’s living room that they are bumping into each other and multiple stadiums need to be erected to hold them. It appears that Obama has brought most of them into our house; or is at the very least the one who willingly and even effervescently allowed them in. A new, improved and nauseatingly capricious Hannibal, perhaps?
However, instead of a traditional familial grouping that overlooks said pachyderms, Obama’s “family” is the leftist media–and of course his adherents (who include members of Congress–all Democrats and most RINOs) and sycophants. Oops! I forgot, the Obama media, adherents and sycophants are one in the same and all belong to his leftist totalitarian family. And what, pray tell, have the media et al ignored? Well…let’s take a look, shall we?
As the Leftist media–which includes virtually every print, network and cable channel “news” source known to humankind–hides and suppresses virtually if not literally everything and anything that might damage (in any way, shape or form) The Obama, it has been extremely difficult to discover the real truth about and behind the individual. But, a few real investigative journalists (Google Doug Hagmann amongst others) persist even today. The more the Leftist media try to hide the truth, the more real reporters want to uncover it, bring it to the public and into the light of day. Here are a merely a few tidbits–poisonous morsels that impact our lives in a probable deadly manner–from Dictator-in-Chief Obama’s reign.
1. First and foremost–and the biggest elephant of all–is the lack of a true and viable birth certificate. Without said certificate, Obama is a usurper of the US Presidency. That which has, thus far, been given to the erstwhile press and Obama’s other fawning flatterers is nothing more than a short form Certificate of Live Birth–a certificate that (at the time of The Obama’s birth) Hawaii issued even to those who were foreign born and not US citizens. It may still follow this practice, today. If Obama really is a natural born US citizen–as required constitutionally–why does he continue to pay his retained attorneys to keep his records hidden and to fight each and every attempt of the public to get to the truth? In his quest for ultimate power, Obama ignores the US Constitution. And his media and Congress allow him to get away with it. So many pay-offs so many bribes? That’s a Dictatorship (aka Tyranny), folks. By the way, our US Republic is gone.
2. Obama’s “health” care bill was the fight its instigator said he must win. And Obama won not only by attacking and fighting against the will of We-the-People but, will soon also be over our dead bodies. Yes, Virginia, Death Panels are STILL contained within the ObamaCare Death Plan and so are some of the ugliest commands against human life and one of–if not the thus far–most Machiavellian pieces of legislation ever written. No right to life? No “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” no Republic. But then, a smaller population is easier for the slave masters to manage and control.

Federal judge to rule on bond in Hutaree militia case By the CNN Wire Staff April 29, 2010 7:40 a.m. EDT
(CNN) — A federal judge says she will decide soon whether nine alleged members of a Michigan-based anti-government militia should be released from jail on bond.
U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts finished a two-day hearing Wednesday but did not specify a date when she would rule on the defendants’ detention, according to CNN affiliate WDIV in Detroit, Michigan.
Charges against the members of the so-called Hutaree militia range from conspiring to overthrow the government to attempted use of weapons of mass destruction. Attorneys representing them said they should be released on bond until they face those charges in court.
But federal prosecutors argued that the defendants were a danger to the community and a flight risk.
Several of the defendants’ family members said Wednesday that they would serve as “third-party custodians,” making sure their relatives comply with rules if released, WDIV reported.
Roberts pressed prosecutors to justify their theory that the group was planning an attack, WDIV said, but also expressed concerns about a statement accused group leader David Brian Stone Sr., 45, made about a police officer.
“He said, ‘We’re going to pop him, guaranteed.’ What’s that?” she asked.
“Talk. Stupid, hateful talk, but nothing more than talk,” said Bill Swor, Stone’s defense attorney.
Putting bullets through bodies ain’t no easy thing. But hey, do it a couple times, it don’t bother you.
