Fight The Fight Citizen Soldiers!


The above link will take you to Atlas Shrugs.
Listen, we are under attack from within. The media has been indistinguishable from the Democrat party having thrown off any semblance of objective reporting. No negative Obama Biden stories - no investigative journalism on the deep corruption of Obama's ascent and sketchy background and terrible alliances. The massive vote fraud is unfathomable.

The Democrats want their Black president - no matter if his father was more Arab than African. No matter if he grew up on the streets of Indonesia. Nothing matters. [...]

Be sure to check the post out. There is actionable duties thee to perform.

Whereas we cannot distinguish between the "media" and the Democrats, we also cannot distinguish the Democrat Party leadership from terrorists. For instance, in recent days the terrorists have stated that the current financial non-crisis crisis is a victory for them like they had something to do with it. Isn't it just like a democrat to lay claim to something they had nothing to do with? Oh. Wait. Democrats didn't say that. See? One cannot tell the difference between a democrat or a terrorist.

When an enemy of the USA proclaims that they want to see Obama as President, one has to wonder about that one. And while we are at it, when an American Presidential Aspirant tries to lose the war we are in for political gain, shouldn't we question his treasonous actions and his loyalties? Sarah Palin is correct...Obama is indeed unfit to command. When a Presidential Contender says that our Troops are "just air raiding villages and killing civilians", I certainly do question the frauds' motives.

Even Joe Biden knows Czarbie is unqualified and is a liar as well as a proponent of the usual DCN Double Standard. I spit in his face. Every political leader in our nation and many others knows for a fact that Obama was willing to lose the war for political expediency. Not only id he a pathetic anti-Americanist, he is a traitor.

A profoundly important point is being missed in the campaign debate over which candidate was right on Iraq. In 2006, when conditions on the ground were trending downward and a decision was required either to continue the struggle or to cut our losses, Barack Obama stated that the proposed deployment of more forces, the "surge," was doomed to failure and instead called for a phased withdrawal of all forces within a defined period.

In short, Sen. Obama was willing to lose. It was an astonishing display of ignorance to be so cavalier about defeat, almost as if losing a war was tantamount to losing a set of tennis -- something without lasting consequence.

I recall very vividly April 30, 1975, the day we acknowledged defeat in the Vietnam War -- the day Ambassador Graham Martin and others were evacuated ignominiously from the roof of our embassy in Saigon. Only later did it become clear how damaging that defeat was.

There were consequences for all nations, especially small states who are vulnerable to great-power pressures. In the late 1970s it contributed to a greater Russian willingness to take risks and a more aggressive Soviet foreign policy. Indeed, in the years immediately following our defeat in Vietnam, an emboldened Soviet Union established a dominant influence in Angola, Ethiopia, South Yemen, Mozambique, Nicaragua and ultimately invaded Afghanistan with 100,000 troops. [...]

I remember as well. I know first hand what it is like when filthy, dirty, scum politicians turn their backs on the lives of Troops protecting their worthless lives from situations that THEY got us into in the first damn place. Screw Czarbie and his followers and may they rot and burn in hell for the sins and the crimes they have committed against our Troops for their precious and pathetic power grabs.

And now, due to political expediency, as his own son heads of to war, Joe Biden is now balking and doing what he accused Czarbie of doing. What a coward and political hack bastard he is.

Not only is Czarbie unqualified to lead a fart factory, Joe Biden should be ashamed. They disgust me beyond contempt.

Ignorant, Hate-Filled Anti-Americanists and 91101

~Snooper~


Up at Digital Journal there is an article entitled, Time For Europeans To Butt Out Of American Politics and has received many moonbat comments. But, that isn't what this post is all about. However, it is a segue into several pieces over at Radarsite.

I have waited until I have regained my composure in a specific regard but I have determined that this will not transpire. The utter disgust and border-line hatred that I am experiencing needs to abate itself so I have decided to go ahead and make this post. I felt better immediately upon making this decision.

I want you to take a look at the photo to the left. Right click on it and open it up into another tab or window and study it. Study it long and hard and then I want you to take a peek at the following pieces at Radarsite. Feel free to comment here but, better yet, leave the comments over there at RG's place.

Post 1: The Daily Kos: Beyond Outrage, Beneath Contempt
Post 2: b3ta.com: The Source of the Scourge
Post 3: America The Beautiful: Our Common Hallowed Ground
Post 4: It would be impossible for anyone to come to the defense of that Daily Kos 9/11 cartoon, right? Wrong
Post 5: Daily Kos' Latest Defense Strategy for the 9/11 Cartoon Scandal: It Never Happened

The above "cartoon" was drawn and published by a complete ass. It has since been removed from the Daily KOSmonoff site but the damage has already been done. These people are not Patriots. At least not Patriots of this Nation that I and millions of others have fought, bled and died for. These cretins are lower than whale droppings. They are beneath contempt and if their guts were on fire, I would not piss up their arse to douse the flames.

Global Cultural Jihad: The Enemies Within and Without

I ran across an article at the Counterterrorism Blog entitled, U.S. Congressional Representatives' Stance on Jihad and the War of Ideas. In this article, Representatives of the House are identified as those that opposed a key amendment to the House Resolution 5959, Intelligence bill on 2009 intelligence funding. The amendment dealt with what has been called the "terror lexicon". The amendment was initiated by Rep Pete Hoekstra (R-MI).

Hoekstra's amendment condemned efforts by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), National Counter Terrorism Center (NCTC), and the State Department to recommend a "terror lexicon" that prohibits use of words such as "Jihad," "jihadist," "Islamist," "mujahadeen," "caliphate," etc. In this amendment, Congressman Hoekstra called for the House of Representatives to prohibit the use of intelligence funding in support of such "terror lexicon" efforts. The House Intelligence Committee voted against this amendment, and over 900 people signed a petition condemning the actions of the House Intelligence Committee that was sent to members who voted against the amendment. [...]

Through a series of fights, the amendment passed and is now part of HR 5959. The language is as follows:

"None of the funds authorized to be appropriated by this Act may be used to prohibit or discourage the use of the words or phrases 'jihadist', 'jihad', 'Islamo-fascism', 'caliphate', 'Islamist', or 'Islamic terrorist' by or within the intelligence community or the Federal Government."

However, this is not what the article cited or this post is about. What Jeffrey Imm is writing about are the Representatives that voted against the amendment in an attempt to rid the bill of this crucial amendment.

In the process of the fight for that which is right, Rep Hoekstra said the following: (emphasis added by moi)

"Al Qaeda itself uses these terms to describe its fight against America, our allies, and moderate Muslims around the world. Why then would we prohibit our intelligence professionals from using the same words to accurately describe al Qaeda's stated goals?"

"Yet that is exactly what some in Washington are attempting to do. I was dismayed to learn that over the past few months, intelligence bureaucrats at the State Department, the National Counterterrorism Center, and the Department of Homeland Security have issued memos imposing speech codes on how their employees can describe al Qaeda and other radical jihadist groups. They won't even be able to use the words these groups use themselves to describe themselves. These agencies within the intelligence community won't be able to use those words."

"Mr. Chairman, free speech should not be controversial, nor should candid, accurate, and fair discussion of the self-professed goals of the terrorists that attack our homeland and have sworn to kill more Americans."

"I find it more than ironic that some who have complained the loudest about politicization in the intelligence community would oppose this simple amendment to prevent the politically correct politicization of our Nation's intelligence community. We all know that political correctness can be the enemy of clarity."

"We also know that radical jihadists have made repeated efforts to stifle free speech in the West, including the murder of Dutch film maker, Theo van Gogh, and frequent death threats against authors, cartoonists, and journalists."

"Let's not give the radical jihadists a victory here by imposing a speech code on America's intelligence community."

"How will America understand the nature and the character of our enemy if we can't use the words that they use to describe themselves and we need to come up with a whole new language that is totally out of context with the enemy and the nature of the threat that we face today?"

To view the list and visit the web sites thus identifying the enemies within our very own Undistinguished and Dishonorable Halls of Congress, GO HERE and see if one of your non-Representatives is so listed and identified and then demand that they provide an answer to you as to why they try to coddle the enemy.

If one of yours is on this list, if they are up for re-election, vote for the other guy or gal. To no surprise to me at all, both Rep. Ray LaHood [R, IL-18] and Rep. Ronald Paul [R, TX-14] voted against it. Both surprising and unsurprising Rep. Jo Ann Emerson [R, MO-8] , Rep. Luis Fortuno [R, PR-0], Rep. Wayne Gilchrest [R, MD-1] and Rep. Frank Lucas [R, OK-3] all abstained from voting. So, there are six idiots that need to be replaced right there.

The rest are Democrats and, well, you know the drill.

Take Our Country Back Calls For Nancy Pelosi's Head - Metaphorically, Naturally

The language of The Logan Act which is still on the books and reads as follows: (reference this post)

Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply himself, or his agent, to any foreign government, or the agents thereof, for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.

This is clear language and it is clearly understood.

When I originally wrote that piece, it was immediately attacked by moronic Leftinistra anti-Americanists. I expected that and I will expect it again. Back in April of 2007, CFIF had this to say at the very end of the post and it represents how far PC has infected the spines of the pathetic men and women that have been charged with securing this nation from both foreign and domestic enemies:

[...] The Washington Post called Speaker Pelosi's mission to Syria "foolish." Vice President Cheney called it "bad behavior." We call it felony. [END]
That was in reference to Nancy's visit to Syria, a known State sponsor of terrorism, as she was exhibiting her BDS to and for our enemies.

Now, we have Right Voices, Tall and Rich, Gateway Pundit, Thinkin' Bout Stuff and scores of others revealing that the current Speaker of the House was negotiating with known terrorists and other State sponsors of terrorism in South America - namely FARC - undermining America's security. (FYI, the Logan Act was "modified" in 1948)

For a full explanation and a small history lesson of the Logan Act, there is a comment at the Human Events blog written by Lisa Richards, third one down. Here is a snippet:

[...] According to the United States Supreme Court, only the President of the United States has such power and authority to act as spokesman for the U.S. All others, including government leaders, must retain approval.

According to the Logan Act, to disregard such authority is a dangerous threat to the United states, placing its citizens in [jeopardy]. The Act strictly states no U.S. citizen has the right to even correspond with foreign governments without the approval of the President of the United states. No citizen can take on disputes unless they are lawful sanctioned government officials acting on the authority of the President of the United States.

The Logan Act stands as law to this day, but is continuously violated without punishment, except for one case in 1803 when a Kentucky newspaper called for the citizens to make a separate Western United States under France.

Can anyone imagine a French Kentucky? What kind of Burbon would that be; carbonated?

In 1948, the Logan Act resurfaced when Congressman J. Parnell Thomas demanded the immediate prosecution of Henry Wallace for breaking the 1799 Logan Act Law. According to author Frederick B. Tolles of The William and Mary Quarterly 3rd Ser., Vol. 7, No. 1 (Jan., 1950), pp. 3-25 column titled Unofficial Ambassador: George Logan's Mission to France, 1798, Tolles stated: "Was not Wallace, in speeches made while traveling abroad, criticizing American policy toward Russia? And was not this criticism by a private citizen, asked Representative Thomas, influencing a diplomatic dispute in such a way as (in the words of the Act itself) 'to defeat the measures' of the United States?" [...]

Hell, even I know of Ted Kennedy's dealings with the USSR violating the Logan Act as he was trying to undermine his "dear friend" President Ronald Wilson Reagan for crying out loud. ALAS! There are no men of courage in DC - their spines have been mashed to infected puss pods and are no more effective in representing We The People than a bowl of whale dung is.

The Wall Street Journal wrote a lengthy article back in 2007 exposing the act of the Traitor Pelosi but, again, the cowards did nothing. It wasn't politically expedient to do anything.

I have a damn question. When will it be politically expedient to protect this nation from the enemies within? When the American People arise and take to arms? Will it be politically expedient then?

Read the articles at the blogs I linked to above and read for yourselves how deeply Nancy Pelosi and the Leftinistra are in bed with our enemies and then tell me why not a damn coward in DC is doing anything about it. (The Wall Street Journal article is here.)

Oh. Wait. I already answered my own question by using the descriptor "coward". Never mind.

Treason/Felony of the SoH Pelosi

Opinion Derived From Fact…Unlike A Leftinistra

Did Nancy Pelosi Violate the Logan Act?

Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply himself, or his agent, to any foreign government, or the agents thereof, for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.

That is the complete text of the Logan Act, passed by the U.S. Congress on January 30, 1799, and in force to this day.

Did Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (and others) violate that act during a much-publicized, self-authorized trip to Syria?

The answer, like the law itself, is simple and straightforward: Yes.

Nancy Pelosi qualifies as “any citizen of the United States,” with no exemption as Speaker of the House.

Nancy Pelosi acted “without authority of the United States,” which, in matters of foreign policy, resides solely and exclusively in the executive branch of the U.S. Government, meaning the President of the United States and his designees. The President of the United States specifically disapproved of the Pelosi trip to Syria, asked her not to go and criticized her thereafter.

Nancy Pelosi directly commenced “correspondence or intercourse” with officers and agents of a foreign government.

Nancy Pelosi, by her own statements, intended and attempted to influence the “measures or conduct” of that foreign government. Those measures and that conduct directly relate to disputes or controversies with the United States (and its allies).

That the measures and conduct of Syria are among the worst of nations is of considerable concern from the standpoint of U.S. foreign policy, but is irrelevant from the standpoint of the Logan Act, which does not grade the behavior of countries or delineate among them for the purposes of its strictures.

That Speaker Pelosi says she said nothing on her trip that differs from the positions of the President is also irrelevant, from the standpoint of the law, and either woefully ignorant or ignorant and spiteful, from the standpoint of international relations.

The current policy of the U.S., as made by the executive branch, is to isolate Syria. That may be right; it may be wrong; it may not even matter. It is not, however, anywhere within Speaker Pelosi’s prerogative to tangibly interfere or even interpose herself by meeting directly with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for the purposes of any “diplomacy.”

Pelosi’s defenders make much of the fact that she is Speaker of the House of Representatives and only behind the Vice President in order of succession to the Presidency. That may get heads nodding on television talk shows, but falls with a thud against the words of the U.S. Supreme Court, recognizing the “exclusive power of the President as the sole organ of the federal government in the field of international relations” or “the decision of the executive is conclusive.”

(Contrary to the mistaken assertions of some, presidential succession is not specified in the Constitution, but in statutory law made by Congress, subject to change, as it has changed in the past. No Speaker has ever succeeded to the Presidency. Even if one ever does, that will never make the legislative branch the executive branch or allow anyone in the legislative branch to adventure past the separation of powers that is one of the cornerstones of our government.)

It is far more pertinent to ask another question regarding Pelosi’s role as Speaker of the House. What does it say to this country that she openly violates a law made by the very legislative body of which she is the putative leader? If she disagrees with the law, for any reason, it is her job to try to change it, not to violate it, no matter how much she may disagree with the foreign policy positions of a duly-elected President.

The Logan Act may be old and no one ever before prosecuted for violating it. But it is neither ill-founded nor archaic, particularly in a time of world unrest and significant domestic tension regarding U.S. policy toward that unrest. The law does not preclude all legislators’ discussions with foreign leaders, such as fact-finding, but only those which have the unauthorized intent to influence those leaders.

As recently as September 2006, the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct of the House issued a memo to all members and officers that cautioned against activities that implicate the Logan Act, albeit intended as a warning to outgoing members. Similarly, in February 2006, the Congressional Research Service prepared a survey of the Logan Act for Congress. While neither document is particularly respectful of the law, there should at least be no one in Congress claiming not to understand it (including Speaker Pelosi’s Republican fellow travelers).

There is no question that many Americans and many in Congress disagree strenuously with foreign policy positions of the Bush Administration. Any and all, including Speaker Pelosi, may say so, loudly and often, in Congress, in the public square. But none of us, including Speaker Pelosi, has the right to conduct any foreign policy, without specific authorization of the President.

Now, Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Tom Lantos, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, are openly discussing a diplomatic trip to “dialogue” with Iran. In the Byzantine world of foreign relations, that’s like trying to dismantle a nuke wearing only a head scarf for protection.

The Washington Post called Speaker Pelosi’s mission to Syria “foolish.” Vice President Cheney called it “bad behavior.” We call it felony

The Few Dictate To The Many? Since When?

Click here to sign the petition.

Fellow Patriots. Are we to stand or sit idly by as the few whiners and heathens in this country dictate to the rest of us?

I say, HELL NO!! Is it any wonder that such attacks on our Foundings originates in the Leftist Province of the Socialist Peoples Repugnant of Leftifornia?

RIVERSIDE,California - Complaints about religious content have led to a ban on flag-folding recitations by Veterans Administration employees and volunteers at all 125 national cemeteries. It all started because of one complaint about the ceremony at Riverside National Cemetery in California.

[...]


Stand and fight these enemies from within! Don't sit on your collective butts while charlatans and cowards play PC to our end.

This is what the enemies within cannot stomach...

The flag folding ceremony described by the Uniformed Services is a dramatic and uplifting way to honor the flag on special days, like Memorial Day or Veterans Day, and is sometimes used at retirement ceremonies.

Here is a typical sequence of the reading:

(Begin reading as Honor Guard or Flag Detail is coming forward).

The flag folding ceremony represents the same religious principles on which our country was originally founded. The portion of the flag denoting honor is the canton of blue containing the stars representing the states our veterans served in uniform. The canton field of blue dresses from left to right and is inverted when draped as a pall on a casket of a veteran who has served our country in uniform.

In the Armed Forces of the United States, at the ceremony of retreat the flag is lowered, folded in a triangle fold and kept under watch throughout the night as a tribute to our nation's honored dead. The next morning it is brought out and, at the ceremony of reveille, run aloft as a symbol of our belief in the resurrection of the body.

(Wait for the Honor Guard or Flag Detail to unravel and fold the flag into a quarter fold--resume reading when Honor Guard is standing ready.)

The first fold of our flag is a symbol of life.

The second fold is a symbol of our belief in the eternal life.

The third fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veteran departing our ranks who gave a portion of life for the defense of our country to attain a peace throughout the world.

The fourth fold represents our weaker nature, for as American citizens trusting in God, it is to Him we turn in times of peace as well as in times of war for His divine guidance.

The fifth fold is a tribute to our country, for in the words of Stephen Decatur, "Our country, in dealing with other countries, may she always be right; but it is still our country, right or wrong."

The sixth fold is for where our hearts lie. It is with our heart that we pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

The seventh fold is a tribute to our Armed Forces, for it is through the Armed Forces that we protect our country and our flag against all her enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of our republic.

The eighth fold is a tribute to the one who entered in to the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day, and to honor mother, for whom it flies on mother's day.

The ninth fold is a tribute to womanhood; for it has been through their faith, love, loyalty and devotion that the character of the men and women who have made this country great have been molded.

The tenth fold is a tribute to father, for he, too, has given his sons and daughters for the defense of our country since they were first born.

The eleventh fold, in the eyes of a Hebrew citizen, represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon, and glorifies, in their eyes, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

The twelfth fold, in the eyes of a Christian citizen, represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in their eyes, God the Father, the Son, and Holy Ghost.

When the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost, reminding us of our national motto, "In God we Trust."

(Wait for the Honor Guard or Flag Detail to inspect the flag--after the inspection, resume reading.)

After the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it takes on the appearance of a cocked hat, ever reminding us of the soldiers who served under General George Washington and the sailors and marines who served under Captain John Paul Jones who were followed by their comrades and shipmates in the Armed Forces of the United States, preserving for us the rights, privileges, and freedoms we enjoy today.

Fighting the Dems to Keep America Safe: FISA

The post following was "lifted" from Wake Up America and cross-posted here. I am going to add a bit to the bottom of the post.

Unable to actually legislate, as we discussed this morning, the Democrats thought they would get cute and cut off debate to preserve a loophole on behalf of the terrorists around the world.

Not many people are familiar with the House Rules Committee, or why it has so much power to determine what legislation passes the House. Simply put, the Committee sets the terms for debate of all significant legislation--how long a bill is debated, who may offer amendments, what amendments may be offered, etc. Before a bill goes to the House floor, the Committee meets to review amendments, hear testimony from interested parties, and discuss how to structure the floor debate.

Rules Committee Chair Louise Slaughter did something unusual however, in the hearing on legislation to extend the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act--she announced at the start of the hearing that no amendments of any type would be allowed for debate. Committee Democrats followed Slaughter's lead and voted against amendments to: authorize surveillance of those engaged in the creation of Weapons of Mass Destruction; authorize surveillance of foreign terrorists outside the United States; extend liability protection to telecommunications companies that relied on government directives and shared information deemed necessary for protection from terrorist attack; and, allow a debate on the Bush administration's alternative.

The Republicans having but one option left to fight the Democrats in order to keep America safe, used their right under the house rules to offer one 'motion to recommit' the bill.

Nothing in this Act [H.R. 3773] or the amendments made by this Act shall be construed to prohibit the intelligence community (as defined in section 3(4) of the National Security Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 401a(4))) from conducting surveillance needed to prevent Osama Bin Laden, Al Qaeda, or any other foreign terrorist organization designated under section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1189) from attacking the United States or any United States person.

Pretty straight foward but it threw the Democrats into disarray.

From Red State:

[UPDATE by Jeff:] House Democrats were unable to whip enough votes to get their way. Today, they were against a simple vote on a Republican proposal to protect America's intelligence agencies ability to fight Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda. That's it - they were against that and fought desperately today to kill it.

When they failed, they pulled the entire FISA bill.

-----------------
[UPDATE by Erick:] House Democrats have fallen into disarray. They are currently holding the FISA legislation from the floor until later in the day, so they can have more time to work their voting numbers. If the vote were held right now, the Republican motion would pass. Dems are working their moderates furiously right now. Just a reminder, the proposal Democrats are working against simply protects the ability of our intelligence agencies to protect America from Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda.

From Boehner's site:

“Our proposal gives Democrats a very simple choice: They can allow our intelligence officials to conduct surveillance on likes of Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda or prohibit them from doing so and jeopardize our national security. Every member of the Majority will now have the opportunity to go on record and take a firm position for or against giving our intelligence community all the tools they need to keep America safe.”

Eric Cantor calls it drawing a line in the sand and putting everyone on public record:

The House is voting today on FISA legislation, the Democrats have played petty politics with this bill. As currently written, many of America’s national security experts are concerned that it will limit their ability to protect this country. Let’s be clear, the intelligence agencies only wish to use the same investigative tools that have been used against organized crime for decades.

Today, we will be offering an amendment to the legislation to clarify that nothing in the bill “shall be construed to prohibit the intelligence community from conducting surveillance needed to prevent Osama Bin Laden, Al Qaeda, or any other foreign terrorist organization…from attacking the United States or any United States person.”

Later today, on the House floor, let’s put all Members of Congress on the record - which do they care more about, pleasing their MoveOn.org liberal base or making sure America is safe and secure? Stay tuned for updates.

UPDATE:House Democrats are holding the FISA bill off the floor, scrambling to figure out how to respond. Why would they possibly want to avoid a vote that merely says we need to allow our intelligence agencies to keep America safe from terrorism?

UPDATE:House Democrats have pulled the FISA bill. They are so desperately against allowing our intelligence agencies to fight OBL and AQ, that they pulled the entire bill to prevent a vote.

These games the Democrats keep playing (closing off debate and not allowing amendments to come to a vote) are the reason they have been and will continue to be known as weak on National Security.

When the Republicans in the house have to fight the hardest battle against Democrats to keep America safe, that is a pretty sad day in history and yet that is where we are right now.

Once again the Democrats would rather please their far left, liberal, unhinged portion of their base than to protect our country.


The above belongs to Wake Up America.

My comments/addendum is(are) below.

I have filed this post in the category of "Enemies of The State" and "Clear and Present Danger". Why, you ask? I am glad you asked. Do, please, try to follow along. It does relate to the conclusions drawn in the above post.

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor – he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation , he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” Marcus Tullius Cicero 42 B.C.

Quite a statesman placed the above together. What does it mean? And, more importantly, how does the statement apply to today's political climate in America today?

On 91101, the entire country rallied together because another Day Of Infamy was upon us all. Our Nation was attacked on American Soil Proper. Our Nation has been under attack since the early 1970s but the politicos did nothing because the "enemy" was but a mere pimple on the buttocks of the world's society. Through the years of the Do Nothing Policy or Policies, the pimples have grown to be infected, bleeding and ulcerous boils with no cure but to exterminate the virus. This is too much for the Bleeding Hearts to accept. This is why they cannot be trusted with National Security issues. They haven't the Warrior's Stomach for it.

The stunt they pulled today is reminiscent of the Reidco ploy after his All Night Slumber Party failed and was quite the International embarrassment.

On every turn, at every opportunity, the Leftinistra, the armies of the socialist liberal, scream and holler and call foul at every attempt to fulfill the guideline of our Constitution and that is to protect the PEOPLE of this country. They claim to represent the majority of Americans but I have yet to ascertain which Americans they represent the majority of. If they claim that the far-left Anti-Americanists are the majority of Americans, what are the rest of us? The far-leftists are NOT a majority in numbers, not by any stretch of the imagination. They are, however, financed and encouraged by George Soros. And, George Soros has said that he owns the Democratic Party. He holds the purse strings and he calls the shots as to what they say, do and vote on and how.

The liberals are our destruction. They want to destroy the United States and our people. This plan must be blocked.


There are no distinctions between liberals. Each liberal is a sworn enemy of the American people. If he does not make his hostility plain, it is only from cowardice and slyness, not because he loves us.

The liberals are to blame for each American soldier who falls in this war. They have him on their conscience, and must also pay for it.

If someone pulled the lever for Kerry, Pelosi, et al., he is an enemy of the people. He earns the contempt of the entire people, for he is a craven coward who leaves them in the lurch to stand by the enemy.

The liberals enjoy the approval of our enemies. That is all the proof we need to show how harmful they are for our people.


The liberals are the enemy’s agents among us. He who stands by them aids the enemy.

The liberals have no right to claim that their arguments and opinions equal ours. They should be ignored, not only because they are simply wrong, but because they are liberals who have no right to a voice in the community.

If the liberals appeal to your sentimentality, realize that they are hoping for your forgetfulness, and let them know that you see through them and hold them in contempt.

A decent enemy will deserve our generosity after we have won. The liberal however is not a decent enemy, though he tries to seem so.

The treatment liberals receive from us is hardly unjust. They have deserved it all. It is the job of the government to deal with them. No one has the right to act on his own, but each has the duty to support the state’s measures against the liberals, to defend them with others, and to avoid being misled by any liberal tricks.

The security of the state requires that of us all.

The stunt earlier today is a Clear and Present Danger to our American FREE Society.

Pondering 9/15/2007 In DC...Events and Transpirations

What is the Fruit Loop Brigade response to the Iraqi Ambassador when he says, "Don't give up on us?"
It is crucial for the United States to stay in Iraq until the mission there has been completed, the Iraqi ambassador to the United States said in Washington on Friday. Ambassador Samir Sumadaie also expressed gratitude for the sacrifices American families have made. "We don't want those sacrifices to go in vain," he said...
I have an idea what the response would be but, at this time, I don't want to pollute my blog.

The below is that which the enemies within fear the most:

Surge working. Drawdowns can begin.

War In Iraq: Gen. David Petraeus' realistic report on Iraq demonstrates why the public trusts the military more than a Congress that wants, once again, to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. READ MORE

And the friends of our enemy have this to say...well worth the read if one has a strong stomach for the inane:

War On Terror: The co-chairmen of the 9/11 Commission buy the Democratic line that the war in Iraq is a diversion from the war on terror and a recruiting tool for al-Qaida . But it's the bad guys who are less safe. READ MORE


And we Patriots saw much of this from the Fruit Loop Brigades, aka, Enemies of THE State:

The Left: The messenger who's usually killed is the one bearing bad news. But Gen. David Petraeus is the victim of character assassination by congressional liberals and their fanatical financiers for delivering good news. READ MORE
As well as the above scares the beejeebers out of the Leftinistra, the below also adds to their eventual trouncing:

Verbatim: Report To Congress On The Situation In Iraq

As a bottom line up front, the military objectives of the surge are, in large measure, being met. In recent months, in the face of tough enemies... READ MORE

With Osama and/or his allies, friends and enablers (including the American(?) Lame Stream Media) aiding and abetting the enemy, is it any wonder that people of dubious brain matter hate America so?

When Joe Biden, a presidential aspirant, betrays his own country, is it any wonder that the moonbats are encouraged to conduct themselves as they do?

When we have individuals or groups of people like these here and here, is it any wonder the rage we feel and will one day be forced to act upon? These are Ron Paul supporters and are they any different from the Leftinistra supporters?

This piece is all telling (a mere teaser to pique interest0

Osama bin LA LA LA LA LA!
In the 1930s, a young liberal journalist named Alan Cranston sounded an alarm about the dangers of National Socialism. Cranston, who later served as a Democratic senator from California, recounted his anti-Nazi effort in an interview a few months before his death in 2000:

From the Pundits Blog:

The Tail That Wags the Dog - Posted by John Feehery

The New York Times today has an interesting poll on its front page and an outrageous advertisement on A25.

On the front page, the poll says that the American people most trust U.S. military commanders to successfully resolve the war in Iraq. Sixty-eight percent trust the military, 21 percent trust the Congress, 5 percent trust the president. Not much faith in our political leaders for a successful resolution to a problem that most observers say has to be solved by a political process.

Interesting read, that...

When we have idiots and traitors caring only for their small group and their future in the CONgress ramble on and on of that which they have no concept of, is it any wonder why we hate them so?

When we have future Jihadis wanting to live in peace so they can regroup and raise more haters of the West, and our own cater to their needs, the needs of the enemy, is it any wonder that we feel another American Civil War is on the ghorizon? The very suggestion that they need a time for peace to "regroup" is a sure-fire indication that we are winning this war but the America Haters and the Jihadi Lovers don't get it. Death to them all before it is death to us all, I say.

Perhaps it will take the next 911 to have the Fruit Loop Brigades realize just how wrong they are?

Terror And Technology: A new study warns of a clear and present danger that would dwarf the attacks on the World Trade and the Pentagon. So why does Congress want to cut the one program that could prevent it? READ MORE

One would hope that they would wake up before this takes place or something equally horrendous. it could be that the opposition is morally bankrupt.

The Democrats' Moral Bankruptcy

By INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY

War On Terror: Congress' Democratic leaders obviously did not listen to what Gen. David Petraeus said this week. Their plan is to lose in Iraq in hopes it will win them the White House. But Americans aren't buying. READ MORE

I do believe that they are morally bankrupt that there is no fixing it except via surgical means.
