Kermie lives long enough to reunite with Dad!

From Welcome Home Blog:



“In March of last year, my husband left for a scheduled 8-month deployment. A month after he left, Kermie, our 11 year old dog, was diagnosed with oral melanoma (cancer). She was given only 2-3 months to live. We were devastated, to say the least. Kermie was our first child, and we did not think Eric would ever get to see her again.
Kermie continued to do okay for several months, surpassing the vet’s estimate for survival. As the end of the deployment drew nearer, hopes for a never-expected reunion began to creep into our minds. However, the tumor in her mouth was making it increasingly more difficult for her to eat and drink.

November, homecoming month, was very stressful. We truly did not know if she would make it until Eric returned. The boys and I were doing everything we could to ensure she took her medication and kept her weight up. I was making her home-cooked meals, and at times, hand-feeding her.

Twelve days before Eric was due home, we received crushing news– the deployment was being extended indefinitely. I just KNEW Kermie would not make it until Christmas.
She hung on.

A few days before Christmas, after 9 long months, we received the best gift. It is all any of us wanted for Christmas.

We thought we would be putting Kermie down within days of his return. But his return was some sort of magic pill for her. She began eating and drinking again, without struggle! Watching the homecoming video, you cannot even see the struggles of the previous months.

Kermie lived to see her 12th birthday in January, but things began to go downhill again in February. It was back to hand-feeding her. She still enjoyed doing her tricks, walks, and rides, but the tumor was making her miserable in between. When good days became good hours, and we knew it was time.

Kermie the Dog: January 28, 2001 – February 22, 2013″

Class Obama will NEVER have


Ever see Obama show ANY class like this?  This is not about the Bush Presidency so DO NOT go there. This is about CLASS and this IS CLASS!

Green and white shirt, black tee shirt, gray pants and tennis shoes. How many people know that he hosts a few Wounded Warrior 10 weekends at his ranch every year? Every year! Not what you expect to see! Dancing with a "Wounded Warrior" she has lost a leg but still dances.

I guarantee we will Never see a story or picture like this from NBC, CBS, ABC, The New York Times, The Washington Post .

Obama would dance with Sandra Fluke at the CAIR cotillion except that dancing is HARAM under Islamic sharia law.

Skippy, Moochelle, the Kids, go on vacation 14 weekends a year.

Thanks to Bob Perry

"We will not expose ourselves as an easy prey"

This afternoon The Mad Jewess did a post at her site.  A letter from a retired Army officer to U.S. Senator John Cornyn concerning "the arming of the DHS for war against the citizens of our nation."

I am taking it a step further and posting the whole letter here because a number of my readers don't read links.  My head swims when I think of what has transpired in America just since he wrote the letter on March 23, 2013.

Capt. Terry M. Hestilow, U.S. Army, Retired - posted on his facebook page - red highlights mine -


The Honorable Senator John Cornyn, State of Texas
United States Senate
517 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C.  20510

Re:  Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and that agencies preparation for war against citizens of the United States of America.

Dear Senator Cornyn,

It is with gravest concern that I write to you today concerning the recent appropriation of weapons by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that can only be understood as a bold threat of war by that agency, and the Obama administration, against the citizens of the United States of America.  To date, DHS has been unwilling to provide to you, the elected representatives of the People, justification for recent purchases of almost 3,000 mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) armored personnel carriers, 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition (with associated weapons), and other weapons systems, when, in fact, the DHS has no war mission or war making authority within the limits of the United States of America.

Significant is the fact that at the same time the Obama administration is arming his DHS for war within the limits of the United States against the People of the United States in accordance with his 2008 campaign speech claiming,

“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set.  We’ve gotta (sic) have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded [as the United States military]”--Candidate Barack Obama, 2008.

the Obama administration is deliberately defunding, overextending, and hollowing the Department of Defense; the only legitimate agency of the U.S. government with a war mission.

This act of the Obama administration stands as a glaring threat of war against our nation’s citizens!  This act of the Obama administration can only be understood as a tyrannical threat against the Constitution of the United States of America!  If left unresolved, the peace loving citizens who have sworn to defend the United States Constitution “against all enemies, both foreign and domestic” are left no option except to prepare to defend themselves, and the U.S. Constitution, against this Administration’s “coup” against the People and the foundations of liberty fought for and defended for the past 238 years.  We have no choice if we honor our oaths.

The only proper response to this threat against the American people is for the representatives of the People, the members of the U.S. House and Senate, to demand in clear terms that the Administration cannot ignore, that the Department of Homeland Security immediately surrender their newly appropriated weapons of war to the Department of Defense (DoD).  Further, since the DHS has assumed a position in the Administration to enforce the tyrannical acts of this president against the People of the United States against the limits of the United States Constitution, it remains for the United States Congress to exercise its limiting power in the balancing of powers established by our founding fathers, to disestablish and dissolve the DHS as soon as possible.  One needs only to look to the rise of Adolf Hitler, and his associated DHS organizations, the SA and the SS, of 1932-1934, to see the outcome of allowing an agency of government this kind of control over the free citizens of a nation.  The people of Germany could not have imagined, until it was too late, the danger of allowing a tyrant this kind of power.  We must not be so naive as to think it will not happen to us as well if we remain passive toward this power grab by the Marxist Obama administration!

Finally, for more than two centuries the nation has lived in peace at home because of the protections of our legitimate military and the many appropriate state and federal law enforcement agencies, supported by Constitutional courts.  We stand today at a cross-road.  Will we allow this present Administration to overthrow our United States Constitution and its legal processes to amend injustices, or, will we honor our obligations to defend the Constitution against a “domestic” enemy?  Our Constitution lays out the proper methods of resolving our differences; and it does not include its overthrow by a rogue agency of a Marxist leadership at home.  You, sir, are our constitutionally elected agent to defend our Constitution at home.  We are counting upon you.  We remain aware, however, of this present threat and will not expose ourselves as an easy prey to the authors of the destruction of our nation.

I know that this letter demands much of you.  We elected you because we, the citizens of the State of Texas, believe that you are up to the task at hand and will, against all threats, honor your oath and office.  We are also writing to your fellow members of the House and Senate to stand in integrity with the Constitution and against this present threat by the Obama administration and his DHS.

We refuse to surrender our Constitution or our nation!

 Resolved,
Captain Terry M. Hestilow
United States Army, Retired

American's - Weak To Be Free

There are no contingency plans for Americans weak to be free.

Boston.  Two radical islamists take an everyday household item and wreak bloody fricking jihad on innocents.  There were plenty of security personnel interspersed thru-out the crowd.  They stopped nothing, and so at the end of the day the demonstration of martial law comforted most rather than horrifying them.

That is not a contingency plan folks!  It is an abrogation of the freedoms and God given rights to a system that history proves will enslave!

By the time this becomes the acceptable norm as it was so easily accepted by the city of Boston, it will be past the point of no return.  All it will take will be a couple of more attacks.

It is a false premise to surrender liberty in the hope of keeping one’s self safe.

Zo’s video below covers the issue of “assault” weapons.  I’ve added it here because the man always has some good common sense views and he makes one think.  It is not an effort to get those unarmed to rush out and buy a gun, some just can’t do that, but government surely does think guns are the answer!

Guns are inextricably tied to liberty as are laws.  We have plenty of laws already, but they are not upheld.  Whose fault is that?  Look in the mirror.

In the quiet moments of our minds we need to examine the assault on America’s psyche, that government is the answer to all of our needs.  We must use common sense in determining is more government control of the people the answer.  If not, the hourglass swiftly drains, find your voice.  It, too, is a very powerful weapon.

Obama's Warped Weltanschauung

One of the first things Barack Obama did after he became President was travel to Egypt to give a speech. Obama's words were supposed to bring about a new age of peace between Islam and the West. Since then we have seen a series of revolutions throughout the Islamic world. These were also supposed to usher in a new age of peace and understanding. It has not arrived.

Egypt was supposed to show us all the good things that the so-called "Arab Spring" would bring to the world. Journalists working for the mainstream media repeatedly claimed that liberty would become a guiding principle in the new Egypt, and most Western politicians were vocal supporters of the new regime. In truth, non-Muslims have been discriminated against in Egypt for years.1 And the situation in Egypt has not improved since Mubarak was ousted and the Muslim Brotherhood took charge.2

One means of exercising the power of a state is the issuing of ID cards marked with one's religion. According to the European Court of Human Rights, being required to have your religion included on a national ID card contravenes one's right to freedom of religion, which has a negative aspect in that one is not obliged to divulge one's religious beliefs.3

In Egypt the issuing of national ID cards opens the door to discrimination in different walks of life. Minority religious groups with no legitimate ID card have difficulty in finding employment, owning property, or engaging in similar aspects of everyday life which people in the West take for granted. According to the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, Christians in Egypt who have national ID cards marked with their religion are almost entirely prohibited from entering professions that are open to Muslims.4

The Egyptian state also makes it difficult for individuals to exercise their right to freedom of religion. Article 18 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights says clearly that everyone has the right to freedom of religion, and that this includes the freedom to have or adopt a religion of their choice.5 It has long been established that this means that everyone has the right to leave a religion. So everyone who has been brought up to think of themselves as a Muslim has the right to leave Islam.6

And yet Muhammad Tantawy, the Grand Mufti of Egypt between 1986 and 1996 and Grand Imam of Al-Azhar University from 1996 until his death in 2010, reportedly stated that it was forbidden for anyone in Egypt to leave Islam.7 And Habib el-Adly, Interior Minister of Egypt between 1997 and 2011, reportedly stated in a memo to an Egyptian court that men who wish to leave Islam should be killed, women wishing to leave Islam should be beaten every three days until they change their mind, and there should be a blanket rejection in Egyptian courts of any and all individuals who wish to leave Islam and become Christians.Some might try to say that these views are extreme and are not part of mainstream public opinion in Egypt, but the Pew Research Global Attitudes Project found that 85 per cent of all Muslims living in Egypt believed that Islam had a positive influence on political life and anyone who wanted to leave Islam should be sentenced to death.9

When a young Egyptian man named Mohammad Hegazy became a Christian, he is reported to have been picked up by the police and tortured. When Hegazy filed a court case to have his religious status officially recognised, he and his solicitor are reported to have received death threats, including one from Hegazy's own father.10 An Egyptian court eventually ruled that although Egypt had ratified the International Covenant of Civil and Political Rights which guarantees freedom of religion under Article 18, that did not apply in Hegazy's case because in Egypt, Article 18 is subordinate to shariah law, which forbids Muslims from exercising their right to freedom of religion.11 So Hegazy's conversion to Christianity was not recognised by the Egyptian state. He tried to leave the country, but reportedly could not get a passport, and was forced to go into hiding.12

Women also have a difficult relationship with the Egyptian state. Under shariah law as it is practiced in Egypt, Muslim men are permitted to marry Christian women, but Muslim women cannot marry Christian men.13 Egyptian women who convert to Christianity find it difficult to have the religion on their identity cards changed, which means that in the eyes of the law they are still Muslims. Since shariah law forbids Muslim women from marrying Christian men, these converts to Christianity cannot legally marry fellow believers. If Egyptian women in that situation acquire forged ID cards saying they are Christian in order to marry, they can be arrested by the police and forcibly divorced.14

Christian women and girls are also reported to have been taken from their families and coerced into saying they have accepted the doctrines of Islam.15 According to reports commissioned by Christian Solidarity International and the Coptic Foundation for Human Rights on the phenomenon of disappearing Christian girls in Egypt, many of these girls are befriended by Muslim women before being handed over to their abductors.16

Playing devil's advocate, one could argue that some of the young girls who have disappeared were unhappy at home and therefore were vulnerable to being groomed, but the authors of those reports argue that according to the UN literature on human trafficking, the fraud, deception and coercion employed by their abductors signifies that those young girls are victims of a crime.17 Clearly the vulnerability of a potential victim does not absolve the perpetrator of a crime of their guilt. Ilan Halimi was led to his death by an attractive young woman, but that only shows premeditation on the part of his abductors, which makes what they did even worse.18

Since 9/11, several prominent Western politicians have asserted that Islam is a religion of peace. If that assertion was true, then societies run according to shariah law would be peaceful. Instead we see human rights violated, widespread discrimination against non-Muslims, intolerance of non-Islamic values, and acts of the most appalling violence perpetrated by both state and non-state actors against religious minorities.

It didn't seem possible that the political fruit machine could ever hit the jackpot and spit out someone worse than Tony Blair, George Bush, Bill Clinton and Gordon Brown but there he is, alive and walking the earth: Barack Obama, a man who believed that if he went to Cairo and uttered some fancy words, he could rewrite history and bring peace and freedom to the Islamic world.

Gone are the days when we had among us men like Winston Churchill, who told his countrymen that the Nazis were a rising, evil power that would have to be dealt with, whether they wanted to hear that or not. To paraphrase Churchill's assessment of the men around him during the "gathering storm" in the 1930s, most politicians today, as then, delight in smooth sounding platitudes, refuse to face unpleasant facts, seek popularity and electoral success regardless of the true interests of the state, are divorced from reality and lack any real intellectual vigour.19 

Instead of a man like Winston Churchill, we have a community organiser from Chicago acting as leader of the free world. A man whose finest hour was a speech he made almost four years ago that had about as much connection to reality as the works of Hans Christian Andersen. Why doesn't Obama should go back to Egypt and make another speech? In fact he could stay there, and make a whole bunch of speeches. He won't need any armed guards with him either. Those nasty guns kill people don't you know.

80 plus years of Progressive subversion and brainwashing helped fuel Boston Muslims motivation for Boston terrorist attack

Like all the 'tragic events' that have befallen our country of late, also including the barge explosions in Alabama, we will never know the full truth of what happened in Boston. Especially from the Obama and his nefarious gang of traitors.

I am NOT going to get into arguing over conspiracy theories that are flying about from all of the tragedies that our country has suffered from. If you want to share your thoughts, this is fine. Post a comment and just an reminder, PatriotUSA monitors EVERY comment. I seldom will ban a comment or commentator but it has happened. I will not hesitate to pull the trigger and will do so very quickly. This is not a forum for lengthy arguing or long pissing contests. If you want to do that, START YOUR OWN BLOG! The rules are very simple and even brainwashed leftarded progressives can follow these rules, well not always. My site and I will protect it! I will offer this same protection to the dedicated contributors that I have invited to be part of the 'Corner.

Okay, now that subtle reminder is out of the way on to this next post, thread. I left the print a bit larger because I am too lazy to fight with this tonight.

This came to be via email and I read the entire post and every word of this article is true. Many of us from the RIGHT side of things have been speaking and calling out about the terrible, long term effects that our Republic is now being crushed by from far left progressive 'free thinking.' It has become crystal clear how deadly to our youth the long term damages from political correctness, excessive diversity and multiculturalism have become. Is PatriotUSA totally lost it here? Well yes to that but on this topic and thread, not even close and stay with me on this one. The author of this article did some digging and the links are exposed for what they are. Look up the name Howard Zinn and see what you get. I am quite familiar with Mr. Zinn and his hatred for anything American, especially American exceptionalism. One of the local members of our school board tried to get one of his books banned from the school district curriculum. Sadly, he failed. Zinn is and will always remain a hero to those from the far left who hate our Republic. He is like Alinsky, Ayers in this regard. He is repugnant and repulsive to me. Just like our POTUS.

This article blows the lid off what the progressives have done to our youth. The author's credentials speak for themselves. Another long post but what else is new. This is worth your time and SHARING!

Boston Massacre Teenager’s Motivations? Anti-American Lessons Taught by PC-Progressive High School  

The Boston Marathon massacre was carried out by two Caucasian Muslim brothers, one an American citizen, pot-smoking Obama voter, the other likely a green card holder. In the aftermath, the Politically Correct Progressive (PC-Prog) media and commentators are all flabbergasted. They wondered what could be the terrorists’ motivations. Over and over, the media reported, “Dzhokhor was a normal American kid.”  President Obama, our PC-Prog leader, said, "One thing we do know is that whatever hateful agenda drove these men to such heinous acts will not — cannot — prevail."

The media probably do not even realize how close they are to the truth—Dzhokhor is a normal American kid. Raised on anti-American messages from the media, from their high school, at their university, and from Hollywood, normal American kids are bombarded with a national self-loathing designed to destroy America’s exceptional culture and values.

Although my books, Willing Accomplices and Obliterating Exceptionalism detail the origins of this suicidal hatred of America, the Boston bombers are the clearest example yet of the power of this message to destroy the lives of Americans.

It seems likely that the older brother, Tamerlan, was the driving force behind the two Tsarnaev brothers’ terrorism. It appears that he was a follower of a Lebanese-Australian extremist cleric. This Muslim preacher’s messages of hatred for Western culture were prominent on Tamerlan’s Youtube playlists.

It appears that Tamerlan recently spent six months overseas. In Russia? Or did he travel elsewhere? Did he go to Chechnya? Did he spend time in what appears to be his homeland, Dagestan, where his father lives now? Who did he meet there? What did he do there?

Dagestan and Chechnya are hotbeds of Islamic terrorism. Chechen terrorists are active around the Middle East, Afghanistan, and North Africa. Wherever there is a jihadi war, it is likely you’ll find Chechens fighting there.

We do know that Tamerlan returned “from Russia,” in the summer of 2012. His brother would have been out of high school (more about that later) for about a year. His return was about nine months before the Marathon bombing.

If Tamerlan trained on bombing and attack techniques (a couple months of intensive training is the minimum for a mujahidin terrorist), he could have returned to Boston with the attack plan fully laid out. He would have the skills required to make the bombs. He would have likely already have identified the target. And he would have the techniques required to carry out the attacks. All that would be missing was the materials to make the bombs, and an accomplice.

So, in this scenario, we have a committed, trained Islamic terrorist ready to carry out his attack. What pool will he draw from to recruit his accomplice?

Why, his “average American” brother, Dzhokhor. With his American-accented English, the younger brother graduated from the celebrated (Matt Damon went here!) Boston high school, Cambridge Rindges and Latin School (CRLS), about the same time Tamerlan was probably contemplating terrorist training.

Now we get to the interesting part. A graduate of CRLS has had years of anti-American claptrap crammed down his throat. Instead of, “Why would a normal American kid do this?” a better question is, “Why don’t all CRLS graduates become anti-American terrorists?”

PC-Prog media widely quoted a retired CRLS history teacher, Larry Aaronson’s shocked reminiscences about Dzhokhor. Aaronson told The Boston Globe, “This is a progressive town, the People's Republic, and how could this be in our midst?" Larry Aaronson, a longtime Rindge and Latin teacher who knew Dzhokhor and who lives three doors down from the brothers on Norfolk Street. "I'm at a loss. I'm at a total and complete loss."

Well, Larry, let’s start with your own handiwork. Aaronson is an acolyte of the raving PC-Prog, traditional-America-hating deceased “revisionist historian,” Howard Zinn. Zinn was a PC-Prog darling. Zinn claimed that his eyes were opened to racist, imperialist horror that is America by the KGB covert influence agent, I.F. Stone. 

Aaronson (third from left in the photo at left), who retired in 2007, used to brag to anyone who would listenthat he had taught Zinn’s textbook to CLRS students since the beginning of his career in 1981. In 2008, Aaronson started Social Justice Works! The Larry Aaronson Fund, in an evident attempt to cash in on his Zinn-Damon connections.
Aaronson proudly related how his students at CLRS had included Matt Damon and Damon’s brother. He proudly told how the Damon boys were taken with the anti-American history of Zinn. Larry, in an homage to Zinn on his death in 2008, started with this quote, “You wanna read a really good American History book? Read Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States. It will knock your socks off!” -Will Hunting (Matt Damon), Good Will Hunting

If you don’t know Zinn’s handiwork, here’s a sample of his writing in The Progressive. In detailing the idiocy of America’s belief that we are exceptional, Zinn’s contempt for America and its citizens fairly drips from each word, “The deeply ingrained belief--no, not from birth but from the educational system and from our culture in general that the United States is an especially virtuous nation makes us especially vulnerable to government deception. It starts early, in the first grade, when we are compelled to "pledge allegiance" (before we even know what that means), forced to proclaim that we are a nation with "liberty and justice for all.

“And then come the countless ceremonies, whether at the ballpark or elsewhere, where we are expected to stand and bow our heads during the singing of the "Star-Spangled Banner," announcing that we are "the land of the free and the home of the brave." There is also the unofficial national anthem "God Bless America," and you are looked on with suspicion if you ask why we would expect God to single out this one nation--just 5 percent of the world's population--for his or her blessing.”


Aaronson boasted that parents called him to say that their kids were talking about, “that “bastard Christopher Columbus… and his genocide, and how we have to question our history books and re-examine the evidence.” The CRLS teacher continued, “Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
 

With that back-story illuminated, let’s return to the PC-Prog media’s puzzling over “What could the Tsarnaev boys’ motive possibly be?”

After the Marathon massacre, the media quoted the Zinn-acolyte Aaronson in its stories about the terrorist mass murderer. Aaronson was “utterly shocked by the news.” The media reported that, “Aaronson taught social studies at Cambridge Rindge and Latin, where Dzhokhor was a student.” The media reports continued, “Dzhokhor also lives just about three houses down from Aaronson’s condo, so they would talk from time to time after Dzhokhor's graduation in 2011.

“I will say to you and to anyone who asks me,” Aaronson told WBUR’s David Boeri outside his home in Cambridge on Friday morning, “he had a heart of gold, he was a sweetheart, he was gracious, he was caring, he was compassionate.”

 ABC, CBS, USA Today, NY Times, CNN all carried versions of Aaronson’s comments about “how normal” Dzhokhor, his neighbor and student was. None of the PC-Prog media provided any other background on Aaronson and his brainwashing of students at CRLS with Zinn’s history.

The Aaronson-Dzhokhor “reporting” by the PC-Prog media brings together the three PC-Prog transmission belts of American culture—education/academia, Hollywood, and the media. All three are dedicated to destroying traditional-American culture. The media reports studiously ignore the connection between Dzhokhor's anti-American lessons taught by a “social justice” weenie (Aaronson) from a book by a follower (Zinn) of a KGB covert influence agent (I.F. Stone) slyly celebrated in a Hollywood product (Matt Damon’s Good Will Hunting).

Islamic terrorism was the force that planted the bombs in Boston. PC-Progressive hatred of American exceptionalism was the motivation behind that force.


We need to let the media and Obama know: We know what hateful agenda drove Dzhokhor. It has infected our media, schools, and Hollywood for nearly 80 years. When it destroyed normal-American culture, the way was cleared for opportunistic infections to take advantage of our weakened national immune system. Islamic extremism is the most violent. But look at others gathering momentum in their destructive power—Militant environmentalists, militant homosexuals, militant anti-capitalists, militant Islamic Extremists, militant anti-war activists, militant race-baiters. All hate normal-America. All call for extreme changes to America.

This is the challenge. We conservatives must realize that PC-Progs are not “for” militant Islamic Extremists—they are simply for anything that is anti-normal-America. When the logical outcome of the PC-Prog’s constant anti-American messages throughout the culture occurs—violent acting out against normal-America, in this case marathon runners—the PC-Progs claim shock and surprise.

It’s time for the chickens to come home to roost. PC-Progs must accept the results of their decades of anti-American messages. We know Dzhokhor's motivations. I agree fully with Obama. This “hateful agenda…will not — cannot — prevail.” Now let’s rebuild our country.

Dubya – More Than Just A Portrait (Repost) from The Last Refuge

I was not a huge fan of George W. Bush.

That said, I do not think America would not have survived as we did had he not been the POTUS when 9/11 came down upon our beloved Republic.

George W. has been trampled, vilified, threatened, killed in effigy by the left how many times and yet this is a man who rode TALL in the saddle when our nation needed strong leadership. Something Obama and his regime have yet to do as they are content to lead from behind and destroy America from within, with a lot of outside help from progressives, haters of the Untied States from all around the globe. Let us leave that topic alone for tonight.

I know all about the 9/11 conspiracy theories and am leaving them in the dumpster where they belong for now. Perhaps another day and time, but not now.

Sundance, from The Last Refuge has an EXCELLENT article/re-post up about the state of the Republic and how we prospered when the Conservatives were in power until 2007. He has done a master's work on comparing the Bush years to where we sadly, are now. On the cusp of becoming a second world country in so many ways and we can thank progressive liberalism, Obama and his ilk for such a fast and steep decline of our Republic.

The facts, graphs, and numbers speak for themselves and I challenge you to tear this post apart. This country REALLY went down the toilet after 2007.

I also want to remind all of you how many Islamic, Jihadist attacks we have now suffered from under the Obama regime, Five deadly Jihadist attacks. Obama has weakened this country in every way possible and Boston is just the warm up. Things are now in motion that will lead to martial law and many, many Americans will probably pay with the steepest and most precious cost of all, their lives. I PRAY that I am wrong.

Under George W. Bush one, 9/11.

I will shut up now and this is one of two, maybe three superb posts for tonight. PatriotUSA

From The Last Refuge. A great site. Sort of like this one?

Dubya – More Than Just A Portrait (Repost)

- Today seems a fitting day to review this again -



One of the frustrating realities of our polarized time is the media creating a skewed and left leaning view of all things political. However, even with this headwind, each day many more people choose to engage in and honest discovery and understanding of what’s going on. Whether because they stumble upon a concern, or whether they happen across some information that makes them rethink their prior position and views, it can lead to an engagement with us from a perspective of their only reality view having been determined by the lens of the media.
Indeed that can be, and often is, an incredibly frustrating conversation because they bring an embedded and sometimes flawed bias into their narrative. One of the more common misunderstandings stems from the media hatred of George W Bush and his actions, aptly called Bush Derangement Syndrome (BSD).

What I want to do here is not change anyone’s mind, but rather to remind people what led to some of Dubya’s decisions in his own words.

I must first emphasize at the time of Dubya’s tenure in the White House I was not a supporter of many “Bush policies”, however, I did understand his reasoning.

Sometimes research into “why” was needed to understand this reasoning, but there were valid reasons nonetheless. It is unfair for the liberal media, or for any Johnny-come-lately to re-write his motivation as illicit, it was not. In hindsight some of his policies and approaches may have been wrong, but it generally is unfair to look in the rear view mirror to judge. Again, at times it is important to stop the conversation, pause, and remind ourselves what was going on at the time.


When Dubya took office the economic country was moving along steadily, indeed Dubya was less focused on fiscal matters and more focused on educational and social issues. The primary plank of his candidacy was education. People were working, things were quiet, and the country was steadily moving forward with little attention to outside the U.S. influences. However, all that changed immediately on 9/11/2001.
EVERYTHING CHANGED.

E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G.

When the terrorist planes hit the WTC, the Pentagon, and the failed Capitol Building attempt which ended in a farm field in Pennsylvania, every American stood in shock. Everything changed, immediately.

Again, I’m not defending Bush. Bush was not adverse to government spending. From a fiscal perspective Dubya guy pissed me off more than most, but I accept the fact that everything in his world also changed after 9/11 especially with the economy. What many people fail to remember is our economy came to an abrupt halt on 9/11. Not only was our collective conscience shocked and we felt suddenly vulnerable to attack, but the very core of our society was attacked. Our economy literally came to a grinding and immediate thundershock of a stop.



The images of people jumping out of burning buildings as the “best option” left impressions of their bodies exploding on the sidewalks of our psyche. Not only did it scare the crap out of us, it also caused us to retract into an almost economic coma.
The Stock Market closed. For weeks and then months people stayed away from purchasing anything, businesses were immediately in trouble. People didn’t buy stuff. Cars were not selling, shops were empty, massive economic activity just stopped as suddenly as the planes hitting the World Trade Center Towers. In addition to the risk from terrorism, Bush was also facing an immediate, check that, an instantaneous economic recession.



People blasted George W. Bush for a news conference when he asked Americans to start buying again, but what they didn’t give him credit for was knowing how substantive this drop in economic activity was. Our economy was immediately in dire straits. He was trying to put people’s minds at ease on the terror threat, while simultaneously needing to get people economically moving again. That was the background for his speech when he said “the terrorists will not win”, he was not just talking about hunting them down and killing them, he was talking about they will not be allowed to destroy our economy.



Do you remember the $600 per person tax rebate check he quickly dispatched to every man, woman and child in our country. This was one of the measures he took to combat an economic downturn facilitated by the terror attacks on 9/11. He was trying to wake up our economy from the fear those Muslim Jihadists put us into. In addition he took steps to lower the tax rates, which are infamously now called the “Bush Tax Cuts”.

It is unfair, heck it is beyond unfair, to ignore the context of his decision. It was not just some arbitrary determination along the lines of ‘gee I think Americans pay too much in taxes, and I want to create a deficit’. That type of claim is just a total disconnect to the reality behind the decision. He was trying to save us from the result of the economic terrorism which followed the attacks.

And guess what? It worked…. It frigging’ worked. Yes, his approach however you feel about the tax rate cuts, the tax rebate checks, and the subsequent economic growth worked. That context is fair and appropriate whether or not you think the decision was correct, the reality of the context still exists. I’m really am quite sick and tired of watching progressive liberals re-write history without this context in place.

Besides, their charge that the Bush Tax Cuts reduced tax revenue is fundamentally flawed. Actually, it is an outright lie. Take a look at “Revenues” or how much money has come into, or been withheld from the Government because of Bush’s Tax rates. The Bush Tax Cuts (“Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003“) were signed into law on May 28, 2003, just months before the start of the 2004 fiscal year. The results — in terms of real revenue to the U.S. governmentwere stunning.



According to the OMB’s own figures, the Bush tax cuts resulted in an explosion of revenue to the U.S. government. Get that? The governments own non-partisan accounting office state unequivocally the Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003 brought more revenue into the treasury (look at chart). That’s not to say Bush wasn’t a profligate spender, he was; and that is where a lot of fiscal conservatives became extremely angry with Dubya. But in virtually no cases were Democrats arguing that he spend less (unless you count national security).

In fact, it was fiscal conservatives who opposed Bush’s absurd policies on spending, amnesty and the expansion of a Medicare prescription program not liberal Democrats.
Additionally, lets just pause a moment and focus on the economics of the situation in November 2006 the date the Democrats won majorities and took over congress.



The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009 it was actually January 3rd 2007 the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, the start of the 110th Congress. The Democratic Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.

For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is “Bush’s Fault”, think about this. January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress:
  • The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
  • The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
  • The Unemployment rate was 4..6%
  • George Bush’s Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB CREATION. Despite the extreme economic contraction that happened as a consequence of 9/11/01 his response to it was successful.


Remember the day, January 3rd, 2007 was also the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee. The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES !

Democrats dumped 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOS! (By the way: Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie – starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy). And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac ? Senator Barack Obama. And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie ? Senator Barack Obama and the Democratic Congress.

Look, I ain’t here to defend Bush, that is not the reason for this thread. But these are facts that seem to become mysteriously lost in the context. Now let’s look at it a different way:
The Media continues to babble on about Obama inheriting a huge deficit from Bush. Amazingly enough a lot of people swallow this nonsense. So once more, a short civics lesson. Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress, and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 was the Democrat Party. They controlled the budget process for FY 2008 and FY 2009, as well as FY 2010 and FY 2011.

In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush belatedly got tough on spending increases.
For FY 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the FY 2009 budgets. And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete FY 2009. Let’s remember what the deficits looked like during that period:


If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the FY 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets. If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.



In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 2009.

It is appropriate to keep facts in the conversation when engaging with progressives, liberals, and even moderate conservatives on these issues. This is a truthful context.

And think about this staggering fact: The last budget used by the federal government to determine spending priorities was signed in the fall of 2007 by George W. Bush for fiscal year 2008. There has not been one annual budget passed since then. Obama has not served one day in office with a spending budget in place. NOT ONE DAY. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid chose to support Obama’s insane spending binge by funding government with continuing resolutions for Fiscal years 2009, 2010, 2011 and now 2012. Democrats held filibuster-proof majorities in both houses of congress for 2008, 2009, 2010 yet they never even proposed a budget. They could have passed a budget of any size, but they never even brought one forth to discuss any limit on deficit spending.

Yet those same people who made a conscious choice to avoid their primary job of creating a budget have the nerve to call the Tea Party terrorists. Who exactly is the economic terrorist in this discussion?

Thanks again for reading.

Patriot "Lite" And 9,000 Cops

I’m not going to be saying anything new here that hundreds, hopefully thousands of bloggers haven’t already said but it bears repeating as the MSM has absolutely no interest in talking about it.  Granted, there’s all kinds of important s*** going on in this country but I’m not sure there is anything more important to our future than the below.

America was attacked again last week, again on Hussein Obama’s watch, once again by bastards of the followers of the religion of peace.  Superseding that in importance was our government’s solution – to declare martial law on a city of 625,000 people.

Martial law defined: The exercise of government and control by military authorities over the civilian population of a designated territory. Martial law is an extreme and rare measure used to control society during war or periods of civil unrest or chaos.

Used to CONTROL society!  War. Civil unrest. Chaos.  Does not apply.  This was nothing short of a moral failure of the good people of this country on the part of whoever set us up!
 
There were some 9,000 members of law enforcement from the FBI, HLS, ATF, State PD, City PD, military police, anti-terrorist swat teams.  There were black hawk helicopters, tanks, Humvees, bullhorns, robots, fire trucks, bomb sniffing dogs, stun grenades of some sort, assault rifles on almost every arm.  Name it, they were well equipped.

It was quite the display just to catch one nineteen year old on the run, but obvious to some of us at least that that was secondary to pulling off an exercise to see just exactly what the reaction would be of the people.

Obviously it was not spontaneous.  Katrina hit in 2005 and there were instances then of law enforcement going door to door confiscating arms.  They’ve had eight years to plan since then.  Friday was the rehearsal for a nation-wide martial law/occupation.  We just saw it with our own eyes.

The shocking thing – to the best of my knowledge, there was absolutely no resistance.  Hussein Obama must have been well pleased.  Unlike Benghazi where he gave the order to stand down and then went to bed, I’m betting he stayed as glued to his TV as much of this country did.

Two days before Obama declared war on America (call it anything else and I’ll call you a fool) a fertilizer plant in Texas blew up.  Funny how the media ignores that story where fifteen died.  The video I posted the other day looks like it possibly was hit by some kind of a missile. Hear the crickets?

A dark post from Battlefield USA – I am adding in it’s entiriety – One Day These Will Go Live
 
As they entered every single innocents home, do you think any of them thought to himself… this is wrong?
No. This is just an excuse to train for when it goes live.
And it will.
And they will love it.
For awhile.
