Keep Calm and Cloister On…

Keep Calm and Cloister On…

As the reader will likely have noticed, there’s a common theme playing out in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic on the part of some of our elected officials. Here, I refer to the emergence of little tin gods among leftist governors, some of whom are resisting calls to ease stay-at-home orders and social distancing restrictions. This week, conservative commentator and former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino excoriated certain governors in this regard, calling them “mini tyrants” as he condemned California Gov. Gavin Newsom for extending marginally constitutional stay-at-home orders and keeping parks and beaches in his state closed.

Newsom isn’t alone, of course. Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker was taken to task over his stay-at-home order on religious grounds (which a U.S. district judge nevertheless ruled as constitutional earlier this week), and New York governor Andrew Cuomo’s clumsy vacillation between prudence and leftist objectives continues to provide cheap entertainment on a daily basis—at least for those who don’t live in my former home state.

Anyone who’s been paying attention will be aware that some of the most egregious actions have been taken by Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, whom I believe is emotionally disturbed on a very deep level. Arrogant and imperious, she probably exemplifies the deportment against which Mr. Bongino railed.

It’s obvious that the nationwide cloistering is getting old for a lot of folks, and most Americans want to see restrictions eased in their states, largely for economic reasons. It’s also noteworthy that private citizens who are making a lot of noise in this regard are on both the left and right sides of the political spectrum.

I certainly agree that some of these little tin gods have abused their offices, and it’s evident that a few are desperately clinging to the augmented powers they’ve enjoyed during this pandemic. As I indicated earlier in this space, some would probably love to see the crisis drag on indefinitely. Part of this has to do with the advantage they believe they will have over President Donald Trump going into the November election the longer the pandemic persists, but I believe that power intoxication is playing a far bigger role.

Perhaps it is because I was exposed to the concept of abuse of power and authority at a very young age, but I have very little tolerance for those who do abuse their offices, whether in education, the criminal justice system or government. Quite honestly, I don’t think there’s anything I find more despicable. My go-to is desperately wishing we could have such people rendered down for fuel, but I realize that’s not how we do things in America.

In good conscience however, I have to admit that there are stupid things being said and done across the board (meaning by parties on both sides of the aisle). Some of this has clearly been reactive rather than deliberative, and has the potential to significantly compound our problems.

Case in point: I’m in contact with people who work on the front lines in the battle against COVID-19 on a daily basis and, as I’ve said more than once, I’ve worked with infectious diseases. I know that this pathogen is not “just like the flu,” and despite the very real political opportunism afoot, I don’t believe the risks are being overplayed. This is a serious illness, and it would seem to me that erring on the side of caution with a disease that could conceivably kill you is probably a pretty good idea.

Then we have the armed protesters who demonstrated against Gov. Whitmer’s stay-at-home orders outside Michigan’s Capitol building, which drew some very well-placed criticism from Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

While I readily confess that Gov. Whitmer would be close to the top of my list for rendering over her antics, you don’t lay siege to a government building brandishing firearms to “make a statement.” You do this when all other contingencies have failed, as our founders intended. Inasmuch as Whitmer isn’t rounding up coronavirus patients and having them incinerated, it occurs to me that there is still sufficient time to remedy the Michigan situation in a civilized manner, either through recall, or simply voting Whitmer out of office at the earliest opportunity—which actually is how we do things in America.

In the current political climate, it is imperative that those of us who have the capacity to govern our passions double our efforts to do so despite the stresses and frustrations attendant to this pandemic. We already know that those on the left lack the ability to do so, and that any lapses on our part in this area will only provide fodder for their propaganda and wild accusations, as well as inordinately alarming our neighbors.

The Left’s Compulsion to Destroy

The Left’s Compulsion to Destroy

Recently, I had occasion to peruse the transcript of a speech I’d seen before, and with which a lot of political Internet prowlers are familiar. It was made in 2004 by Richard D. “Dick” Lamm, who was the governor of the state of Colorado from 1975 to 1987. I find this bit of oratory interesting not only because I relocated to that state in 1986, but because Lamm is a Democrat, and was fairly popular even among Republicans and conservatives (there being a marked distinction between the two).

The speech, which has become an almost iconic indictment of multiculturalism, was delivered at an immigration conference in Washington, D.C., and its focus was the downside of immigration in America, particularly the illegal variety. Lamm’s cynical message postulated how America might be systematically destroyed via multiculturalism.

“Here is how they do it: Turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bi-cultural country.”

– Former Colorado governor Richard Lamm

Lamm went on to enumerate the components of a plan that he said would ensure America’s destruction. This included, among many other elements, encouraging immigrants to maintain their culture, ensuring that the fastest-growing demographic groups were unassimilable, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population; enrolling large foundations and businesses in subsidizing these efforts, and establishing the cult of victimology.

Finally, the former governor detailed two of the most important (and perhaps familiar) components: Making discussion of anything contrary to “cult of diversity” sensibilities off limits, and making it impossible to enforce America’s immigration laws.

Gov. Lamm said that such a plan should also “make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal, that there are no cultural differences.” I’ve never been reticent to state that some cultures are manifestly inferior to that in the West, which positively enrages leftists. I am confident in this assertion because it is invariably undesirable elements of their culture that compels so many people to emigrate to the West. In times past, their goal was to assimilate – to divest themselves of those undesirable elements of culture – and we encouraged them to do just that. As we can see, the opposite is occurring now in America, just as Lamm proscribed.

Writing for Breitbart, former Colorado congressman Tom Tancredo cited a recent Forbes article which revealed that the Internal Revenue Service has been encouraging illegal aliens to steal or fabricate Social Security numbers for years. Their rationale, if you can believe it, was to ensure that they would file tax returns. This has resulted in billions of dollars in bogus tax refunds being collected by illegals, courtesy of U.S. taxpayers. Congressional efforts to initiate an investigation into this abuse were blocked by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, which threatened massive

protests against “discriminatory practices” if such an investigation went forward.
Which effectively makes the Congressional Hispanic Caucus an enemy agency with a primary allegiance to something other than that to which its members pledged allegiance when they were sworn in as members of Congress.

On April 17, the New York Post related an account of how those at the highest levels our government conspired to cover up the kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s role in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. Many have suspected that this was the case for some time, but now proof has been offered. These actions were outright treason – far worse than government officials in Germany warning the press off of reporting on the rape sprees carried out by Muslim men this past New Year’s Eve – but they were consistent with the whorish diplomatic policy American officials have carried on with that Islamic nation for many years.

It is practically common knowledge amongst conservatives that Barack Hussein Obama is a stealth saboteur who has situated members of the Muslim Brotherhood (an Islamist organization that has been plotting Islamic ascendency in America since 1928) in sensitive positions in our government. We’ve also learned over the last few years that Bill and Hillary Clinton have been selling America out piecemeal to the Muslim Brotherhood for decades. Other less prominent politicos, both Democrat and Republican, have engaged in similar practices with unfriendly nations and organizations which have compromised our sovereignty and national security – essentially conducting espionage under the guise of diplomacy.

Writing for the American Enterprise Institute on April 1, Leon Aron stated that an obscure “cultural” difference in perception between Western elites and citizens in their nations is causing the rift between those governing and the governed, driving the latter to embrace nationalistic tendencies and “populist demagogues on both the right and left.” He advised the community of Western leaders to start “adjusting its vocabulary and values to the point where it can talk to its people in ways that the latter will find credible, respectful, and understandable.”

I remain at a loss as to how Western leaders might package their betrayal, treason, and delivery of their constituents into chaos, poverty, and squalor in a way that they will find “credible, respectful, and understandable.” Given the deportment of Western leaders – particularly over the last decade – it would seem that they are being driven by a compulsion to destroy, rather than by a twisted ideology or even simple greed.

All of the foregoing gives rise to the question: How do these American would-be lords and ladies of the global elite expect to carry on, let alone preserve their power, once they have succeeded in destroying America?

Obama-Zuckerberg’s Plans: Slavery Or Annihilation

Obama-Zuckerberg’s Plans: Slavery Or Annihilation

I’m sure my readers were positively titillated by the buzz emanating from the Mobile World Congress Conference this week. What is the Mobile World Congress Conference, you ask, and why should anyone with the intelligence to navigate this publication care?

Well, although the MWC conference is essentially a bunch of high-level computer geeks stroking each other’s egos, in another sense, the conference illustrated a juxtaposition of two very different future possibilities, neither of which is particularly pleasing.

Over the last few years, mobile Internet surpassed desktop and laptop computers as the premier digital platform, so the computer industry in all its vastness is heavily invested in mobile technology. The Mobile World Congress is a creation of the Groupe Speciale Mobile (GSM), itself a creation of the Confederation of European Posts and Telecommunications (CEPT), the largest European telecommunications industry association.

The MWC conference dominated headlines in Barcelona, Spain, this week where it took place (you remember Spain – the country that bailed on its allies after Muslims blew up just one of its commuter trains). After some difficulty getting under steam due to a transportation strike in the largely socialist nation, representatives from communications and media companies from around the world eagerly proceeded with the big event.

One of the conference’s major affairs was Monday’s presentation of new offerings from tech giant Samsung, which drew even more media attention when Facebook CEO and entrepreneur wunderkind Mark Zuckerberg made an “unannounced appearance” to stump for a virtual reality (VR) partnership between Samsung and his company. Facebook has been on track to move forward with VR in a big way since its $2 billion acquisition of Oculus VR, a pioneer in virtual reality technology, back in 2014.

A spoof piece on Zuckerberg’s visit by one website was erroneously picked up as legitimate news by at least one online news outlet; it claimed that Zuckerberg said the Oculus VR headset would allow Facebook users to have virtual sexual intercourse or battle to the death in the social network’s comment sections. On a darker note, one of the online sources covering the Barcelona conference drew a comparison between the VR presentation and popular dystopian futures represented in science fiction films.

What gave me pause relative to Facebook’s VR pursuits was its history of rabid liberalism and Zuckerberg’s penchant for unabashed complicity with the diabolical administration of Barack Hussein Obama. Whether we’re discussing secret meetings Zuckerberg attended with Obama and other accomplices in the tech world, or Facebook’s blatant censorship of conservatives and Christians while permitting the most virulent anti-American, anti-Semitic and anti-Christian rhetoric out there, I couldn’t help but wondering if that online publication’s sinister interpretation of Zuckerberg’s MWC appearance might be prophetic somehow.

At the risk of giving life to yet another wholly unfounded conspiracy theory, we’ve known for decades that people can be subtly manipulated through subliminal messages on television. Audiogenic seizures (those caused by sound) have been known to scientists for a long time, and some years back, they even discovered that the stroboscopic effects in some video games can induce seizures in humans.

So, what might the starry-eyed, nouveau riche elitist and Obamaphile Zuckerberg have in mind for VR consumers – a segment that is likely to explode as VR equipment prices come down and the technology improves? In Barcelona, Zuckerberg announced that Facebook’s proprietary streaming technology would soon be incorporated into Samsung’s VR hardware and that Facebook had created a “social VR team” to explore how people can connect using VR technology.

Why, that sounds strikingly similar to announcements Obama has made about exploratory “teams” he has deployed to gather data on such things as mass scale behavior prediction. Should we be concerned that surreptitious mind control via virtual reality headsets is in store for our future?

What I find amazing amidst all of this is the hubris of the Western world’s power players. This is the juxtaposition of which I spoke earlier: While our leaders busily complete finishing touches on their socialist leviathan, they are also attempting to leverage millions of radical Islamists against their citizens, playing “chicken” with China, North Korea, Iran and Russia, and destabilizing vast regions of the globe.

It’s clear that they have no belief whatsoever that the violent chemical reaction they initiated could possibly mushroom out of control.

One of science fiction’s standard story lines has to do with protagonists acting out the story’s conflict on a post-apocalyptic Earth. How did the apocalypse come about? Well, it was the people who ran things – governments, corporations, etcetera – who precipitated whatever doomsday scenario came to pass prior to Act 1. Sadly, their arrogance and conceit wound up leading to all but a few hundred or a few thousand people on the planet perishing in a hideous paroxysm of global devastation. They didn’t mean to transform Earth into a poisonous, irradiated moonscape, but things got out of hand, you see. While zealously bringing about their malevolent design, somehow they miscalculated the risks.

Of course, someone like Mr. Zuckerberg would already have a first-class ticket on the secret, high-tech mega-ark that stands ready to transport him, his powerful peers and their material wealth to a safe location in the Himalayas or the far side of the moon while the world burns. After the rest of us murder one another off for food, succumb to the radiation or engineered plague, they’ll come back and re-populate the Earth with their socially evolved, intellectually superior offspring.

On a more serious note: As America plunges headlong into this campaign season, consider that mass mind control and imminent global conflagration are not things people were discussing eight years ago.

Look to Britain – And Be Afraid

Look to Britain – And Be Afraid

In my youth, British television was all the rage among many of my peers. Perhaps the fact that there was a limited amount of swearing and nudity in the programming had something to do with it, but some of us were just as devoted to following “I, Claudius” and other ostensibly refined dramas as “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” or “Doctor Who.”

Since this was pre-Internet, altogether too many cable channels and a market that brings programming from pitch to premiere in a few hours, my peers and I didn’t know right off the bat that a lot of our beloved British shows had actually been aired for the first time some 12 to 15 years prior, and had long since ceased production.

Something odd that I noted about British TV’s serial dramas and comedies was a sense of grim resolve and even hopelessness many characters held with respect to their lot in life, their futures and an ever-intrusive government. I saw this as being in conflict with American sensibilities since, at that time, we still viewed ourselves as upwardly-mobile, quite hopeful and with at least some handle on our government.

Perhaps it was a “British thing,” I thought, owing to their history with a monarchy. Despite a few notable real-life British rags-to-riches stories, many Brits seemed reconciled to “their station,” something that was confirmed later as I personally encountered more and more British people.

I also noted something else, and that was the proliferation of people from central Asia, Africa and the Middle East on British TV. There were tons of Puerto Ricans on America’s East Coast where I was raised, but Puerto Rico was a commonwealth of the U.S., so it made sense that they would be represented in media. Slavery explained the millions of blacks, as did sharing a border with Mexico explain all the Chicanos.

But what motivation did the U.K. (and other European nations, I would later learn) have for importing vast numbers of unskilled people from the Third World into their major urban areas?

Well, silly, ignorant me. I guess I couldn’t be blamed given my tender age at the time. The grim resolve and hopelessness I’d seen among average British citizens wasn’t merely their stiff-upper-lip tradition. Nor was their acceptance of the deluge of Third Worlders merely guilt over their history of colonialism.

These were reflections of socialism. Although guilt over colonialism was indeed used as a propaganda tool to sell the malignant socialist agenda to European citizens, much of the same social justice propaganda as is being fed to Americans at present was fed to Europeans from the 1960s on: We’re wealthy compared to this lot, and if you don’t think we should extend our hospitality to them well, you’re just a big, fat racist.

At this point, I have to ask: Would you intentionally take millions of parasitic organisms into your body?

I didn’t think so …

Recently, police in Scotland arrested a man, charging him with “offensive” Facebook posts about Syrian “refugees” in Britain. The individual is being held under Britain’s Communications Act, which conveniently criminalized politically incorrect public statements and publications some years back.

Now that Europe is overrun with Muslim rape gangs, Muslim pedophilia rings and Muslim professional welfare cheats, we know how governments there respond to the chaos their grand, Utopian designs have wrought: They simply deny the problems exist, deny the causality with respect to their magnanimous inclusiveness, cry “racist!” at any who draw attention to the chaos – or simply have them arrested.

Those who have addressed the debate over America’s lax immigration policies and calls to admit untold numbers of mostly Muslim “refugees” into the country with contentions that entry into the U.S. is a “basic human right” need a serious debriefing on the constitutional roles of our federal elected officials and the concept of what constitutes a nation in the first place. I’m not going to identify any of these parties specifically, because my favored disposition where they are concerned is unprintable, so we know what that’s likely to get me.

One can understand how international socialists in Britain were such effective brainwashers since up until recently, the state-run British Broadcasting Company (BBC) produced all of the television programming in the United Kingdom. Now that we can see the brazen coalescing of these political influences in America among entities in government and business, it’s no surprise that our entertainment media are now rife with social justice themes, homoerotica and other subversive material.

There’s a key difference between Europe and America in this case, however: Europeans did not have the benefit of witnessing the rapid societal decline and loss of personal liberties socialist policies brought with them in nations other than their own. Despite ongoing denials on the part of European governments that Muslims had anything to do with the hundreds of rapes that took place in Cologne, Germany, and other cities this past New Year’s Eve, the reports of these occurrences – as well as countless other recent examples of socialist-fostered rot – are readily available for all Americans to see.

I seriously doubt that I could goad many WND readers into ingesting slow poison, arguing that failing to do so would demonstrate a horrid lack of compassion on their part for some obscure minority group. Speaking figuratively, this is precisely what international socialists accomplished with populations in Europe, and are attempting in America.

Obama’s Gun Orders: Sugar-Coated Tyranny

Obama’s Gun Orders: Sugar-Coated Tyranny

A recent Gallup poll featured “Guns and gun control” as 19th on a list of most important problems in the eyes of the American people.

“Government” was the first on the same list. Thus, it should say something to the American people when “guns and gun control” is so overwhelmingly important to “government.”

Before dismantling arguments for the new executive actions announced this week by Barack Hussein Obama relative to firearms, I will briefly reiterate my take on gun control as viewed through the lens of the Second Amendment, this being the only proper criterion for evaluating same: Individuals should be held civilly and/or criminally liable for damage done to persons or property with firearms in their possession in the same manner they might be held civilly and/or criminally liable for damage done with a gardening implement in their possession. Any further restriction – or infringement – upon the possession of firearms or ammunition is unlawful – period.

This would likely apply to over 99 percent of the federal, state, and local firearms statutes on the books in this country. Most of these were instituted by progressives over the last 100 years, and were allowed to stand due to ignorance of the citizenry with regard to the law.

My assessment may appear outrageous (or at least outlandish) to some, but should be no surprise to my regular readers. Simply put: the government from whose potential tyranny the Second Amendment was passed to protect Americans doesn’t get to impose restrictions on that law, as expressly indicated in the verbiage of the Amendment itself.

Over the holiday weekend (actually, through two holiday weekends and the week in between), there was a great deal of anticipation and anxiety as to what firearms-related executive actions in the new year promised by Obama might look like.

Last Friday Obama, who has been called “The Greatest Gun Salesman in American History,” defaulted to the tactic of division, admonishing Americans to “stand up” to groups such as the National Rifle Association. On Monday, Obama vowed to press ahead with new executive actions on gun control after meeting with top law enforcement officials, and asserted that he has the legal authority to do so (this is reminiscent of other areas wherein Obama governed by decree after declaring that he possessed the legal authority to govern by decree).

Finally came the press conference on Tuesday, where Obama announced the new executive actions. Flanked by a cross section of generic Americans whose loved ones had allegedly been victims of gun violence, Obama announced measures requiring background checks on firearms sales at gun shows, flea markets, on websites, and for parties “in the business” of selling firearms.

Offhandedly referencing the Constitution as “the paper” upon which the Second Amendment was recorded (since actually articulating the word “Constitution” might cause him to burst into flame), and reinforcing the necessity for his action with lie after lie concerning the prevalence of gun violence in the U.S., Obama spun legitimacy for these new decrees out of whole cloth.

One of the bugbears of liberal gun control advocates has been gun shows, where private citizens are able to buy and sell firearms without the requirement of background checks. Another sticking point has been online gun sales, which the administration has alleged allows people to circumvent background checks.
This is patently false. As it stands now, for online firearms transactions, firearms must be shipped from one Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) dealer to another, whether the sale is between private citizens or involving an online gun dealer and a private citizen. The receiving dealer is required to conduct a background check on the buyer, even though the dealer did not originate the sale (Firearms dealers typically charge a modest handling fee for this service).

Leaving aside my personal disdain for firearms laws in general, any online firearms transfer not completed in this manner is illegal.

The point is that the “online sales loophole” that the federal government decries doesn’t even exist.

In 2013, when activist legislators in New York, Colorado and Maryland passed draconian gun control measures that had been aggressively advanced by the Obama administration and its surrogates (like former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg), 340 sheriffs in those states refused to enforce the new laws. Some of the sheriffs filed suit against their legislatures, and in Colorado, the laws in question resulted in the successful recall of once-powerful liberal state legislators.

Obama’s pretext for proposing more gun control measures has been the recent spate of domestic acts of terrorism and spree killings involving firearms. None of these could have been prevented by any conceivable firearms legislation, but leftists aren’t prone to confuse such issues with facts.

In large, liberal-controlled American cities, the status quo of law-abiding citizens being at the mercy of armed criminals due to onerous firearms laws is well-known. Controlling governments and socialist ideologues like Obama desire an unarmed populace because such a populace is incapable of armed resistance to tyranny; it’s that simple. The fatalities and injuries among individuals who fall prey to armed criminals is a necessary sacrifice in the minds of these hypocrites who espouse compassion and a desire to protect citizens.

With regard to those unarmed Americans who will be maimed or killed the next time Islamists execute a terrorist attack employing firearms, in Obama’s putrefactive, twisted mind, the victims will deserve it for partaking in the fruits of America’s serial pillaging of undeveloped nations and oppression of the little brown people of the world.

Time to push back against the regime

birtherTOSOn Feb. 8, 2014, one of the oldest and most highly trafficked websites addressing the eligibility and fraud of the individual representing himself as Barack Hussein Obama II was shut down by Google (Blogger) on a pretext of Terms of Service (TOS) violations.

As you may know, Google and several other highly successful tech and Internet companies have cooperated with the Obama administration and its nefarious data-mining and censorship practices, despite Obama’s disdain for business in general and capitalism in particular, and his habit of co-opting entire business sectors.

After the complaints of the website’s owners, users and negative publicity, Google re-activated the website two days later. Their claim to the owner was that hackers had compromised various servers and ad servers, thus leading to the interruption of service. Many users and observers find this implausible given prominent notices that appeared on the website during that period, which specifically indicated that it had been shut down due to TOS violations.

Leaving aside the relative imprudence of the owner hosting a site with such content on a Google server (knowing their ties to the administration), let us examine the facts as we know them:

Over the last few years, American citizens, patriot groups and even members of the press have been targeted by the Obama administration for illegal scrutiny, harassment and intimidation. We are aware of the high-profile IRS scandal, wherein conservative nonprofits were targeted for inordinate scrutiny during the application process – but that is just the tip of the iceberg.

TO: Patriots (black, white, male, female, civilian, military, truckers, bikers, militias, veterans, old, young; every American that loves freedom and liberty)

DATE: May 16 2014 in Washington D.C.

MISSION: Restoration of Constitutional government, rule of law, freedom, liberty “of the people, for the people, by the people” from despotic and tyrannical federal leadership.

Assumptions: Millions of Americans will participate.

American veterans and patriots are energized to end the tyranny, lawlessness, and shredding of the US Constitution.

Government is not the target, it is sound; corrupt and criminal leadership must be removed.

Those in power will not hesitate to use force against unarmed patriots exercising their constitutional rights. Patriots may be killed, wounded, or incarcerated. There is no hope given today’s technology for secrecy of this effort nor do we want it secret.

Concept of Operations:

Phase 1 – Field millions, as many as ten million, patriots who will assemble in a non-violent, physically unarmed (Spiritually/Constitutionally armed), display of unswerving loyalty to the US Constitution and against the incumbent government leadership, in Washington, D.C., with the mission to bring down the existing leadership. Go full-bore, no looking back, steadfast in the mission.

Phase 2 – One million or more of the assembled 10 million must be prepared to stay in D.C. as long as it takes to see Obama, Biden, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi, and Attorney General Holder removed from office. The senior republican in the US House of Representatives will become Speaker of the House and the US House of Representatives will elect a temporary President and Vice President of the United States. The U.S. Senate will take action to elect a new majority and minority leader.
As required, the U.S. Congress will execute appropriate legislation to convene new elections or U.S. States will appoint replacements for positions vacated consistent with established constitutional requirements.

Phase 3 – Those with the principles of a West, Cruz, Lee, DeMint, Paul, Gov Walker, Sessions, Gowdy, Jordan, Issa, will comprise a tribunal and assume positions of authority to convene investigations, recommend appropriate charges against politicians and government employees to the new U.S. Attorney General appointed by the new President.

*All actions in Phase 2 & 3 will be consistent with the U.S. Constitution.

Date of Operation: OPERATION AMERICAN SPRING – Beginning Of Tyranny Housecleaning, May 16, 2014, completion to be determined

We are past the point of no return, thus must move forward with an effort to save our nation, as there is no other choice. We are asking, pleading with you, and any others that have resources, national voices, email lists, blogs, FB, Twitter, to call for a non-violent American Spring May 16 2014 in Washington D.C. We must appeal to ten million and more American patriots to come and stay in Washington, D.C. to stop the White House and Congress from total destruction of the United States. It’s now or never. God help us.

…..the law of nature rules. A fluffy, cuddly lamb gets eaten by a mean old wolf is not an illegal or immoral event…the law of nature. When some greedy, self-serving occupant of the White House or Congress, or elements outside America, is threatening our existence, our freedom, our liberty, our Constitution, our life resources, our America, then we fight back to destroy the threat and there is nothing immoral or illegal about it. When the government becomes lawless, then “we the people” no longer are obligated to follow the government……there is no law when government picks and chooses for political purposes or personal agenda. At this time the government is performing as a lawless entity……

A duck cannot be turned into a fox; an elephant cannot be turned into a flea; the laws of nature will not permit. Likewise, a nation ordained and principled by the laws of nature, sovereign, free, with liberty for all cannot naturally become a nation guided by royalty, decrees, tyranny, elitist, self-serving criminals. The former has proven desirable, the latter has proven human pain. “We can become a nation guided by royalty IF “we the people” beguiled by the government in surrender to our lusts for that which we have not earned –for what is not natural –if we have become intoxicated by unbroken success” as Lincoln proclaimed in March 30 ,1863 call for fasting, humiliation, and prayer–we can very easily heap to ourselves leaders, and with itching ears, be turned from the Truth to become enslaved by the LIE.” The United States of America (elephant) has embraced the “LIE” and is teetering on the abyss of becoming a sniveling, blood sucking, undesirable nation (flea).

OPERATION AMERICAN SPRING will be a gigantic step in removing the flea infestation that is sucking the blood out of America.

We see no reasonable, hopeful sign that indicates there are honorable, loyal, mature, critical thinking, experienced people in government that understands the chaos about to rain down on America, nor do they care….our only hope is that “we the people” call, organize, and draw a few million patriots to stay in D.C. for an “American Spring”. It would be the catalyst to draw the line and bring to a conclusion a decision on the out of control government, one way or the other. America will rise up or surrender………for me, I only go to my knees in the presence of God Almighty………..my knees will not touch the surface as a result of some piss ant occupant of the White House or a corrupt legislator, or outside element…I will fall to my death standing if necessary.




There is not much time and the only planning necessary is to select a starting date, which we have done, and then show up in Washington, D.C. on that date, and plan to stay for the duration. The goal is restoring the US Constitution as the law of the land, removing the lawless leadership. Will this be a cake-walk? No, it will be painful, and some people may die because the government will not be non-violent; some of us will end up in a cell, and some may be injured. If that’s what it will take to save our nation, do we have any choice? Freedom loving Americans will say there is no choice, we must begin the second American Revolution. Not with guns, but with millions of Americans demanding a return to constitutional government and the resignation of Obama, Biden, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi and Holder as a start…then the constitutional restoration process can begin. An AMERICAN SPRING can be avoided only if the above mentioned officials resign.

Will our national patriot leaders step forward and declare, “send me”, I’ll lead? There are millions of veterans and patriots ready to follow and have said “I will go”.

I urge all organizations, groups, particularly veterans and military retirees begin planning to visit Washington, D.C beginning May 16, 2014. Keep tuned to Constitutional Emergency/Patriots for America www.patriotsforamerica.ning.com for updates and guidance.

Please bathe this effort in prayer as there is no personal agenda or gain save liberty, freedom, and restoration of constitutional government for “we the people”.

Prominent Wall Street advisor recommends “Bug-out Bag” with increasing collapse risk

bug-out-bag1A top financial advisor, worried that Obamacare, the NSA spying scandal and spiraling national debt is increasing the chances for a fiscal and social disaster, is recommending that Americans prepare a “bug-out bag” that includes food, a gun and ammo to help them stay alive.

David John Marotta, a Wall Street expert and financial advisor and Forbes contributor, said in a note to investors, “Firearms are the last item on the list, but they are on the list. There are some terrible people in this world. And you are safer when your trusted neighbors have firearms.”

His memo is part of a series addressing the potential for a “financial apocalypse.” His view, however, is that the problems plaguing the country won’t result in armageddon. “There is the possibility of a precipitous decline, although a long and drawn out malaise is much more likely,” said the Charlottesville, Va.-based president of Marotta Wealth Management.

Marotta said that many clients fear an end-of-the-world scenario. He doesn’t agree with that outcome, but does with much of what has people worried.

“I, along with many other economists, agree with many of the concerns expressed in these dire warnings. The growing debt and deficit spending is a tax on those holding dollars. The devaluation in the U.S. dollar risks the dollar’s status as the reserve currency of the world. Obamacare was the worst legislation in the past 75 years. Socialism is on the rise and the NSA really is abrogating vast portions of the Constitution. I don’t disagree with their concerns,” he wrote.

American Spring, anyone?

Icelanders-overthrow-governmentThere’s a story that was largely ignored by the establishment press (an oddity, I know) this past spring which should have been one of the biggest news items of the year. In America these days, the press typically has one reason for ignoring or spiking stories, of course: If it doesn’t fit the narrative of the political left, it isn’t covered.

The particular nature of this one, however, speaks volumes as to why it was glossed over and why the one buried mention mischaracterized the item entirely.

In April and May of this year, citizens of the nation of Iceland essentially overthrew their government, establishing a new constitution and a citizens’ oversight framework intended to check the actions of their government in the future. The impetus for this was a major banking scandal that emerged in 2008 and whose repercussions have carried through to the present. This involved the collapse of all three of the country’s major privately owned commercial banks following their inability to refinance their short-term debt and a run on deposits. It is said to have been one of the worst aspects of the global economic meltdown that had its roots in the machinations of radicals in the U.S., complicit lawmakers and unscrupulous mortgage banking officials.

Now, the Icelandic banking scandal itself did come to light and was widely reported, but the ultimate result – the government being ousted – was not. In fact, a New York Times piece on the uprising (the “buried mention” to which I referred) framed the Icelanders as ingrates for disrespecting the political factions that had graciously navigated them through that turbulent period of time. It also did not cover the Tahrir Square-style demonstrations that gave rise to the subsequent elections.
