An Irishman’s American Dream

Waiting in Line

 Young Patriots: Posted on January 29, 2013 – h/t to MJ

I’m a citizen of Ireland and have been attempting to get a green card for over 9 years.

Once again, America faces the popular discussion of immigration – trying to find the best way forward for America and its 11 million illegals.

One of the greatest conservatives of modern time, Mark Levin, had two great guests on tonight’s show – Jeff Sessions arguing against the current ideas, and Marco Rubio, who is part of the group of eight who are trying to come up with legislation to deal with this problem.

Because this is an issue that affects me greatly, I had to call in and I was very lucky to be able to discuss a few points with the Great One – Mr. Levin, himself. I personally have a massive problem with granting an illegal worker a permanent visa because America has laws and those laws need to be respected. The biggest issue, to me, is the fact that 11 million people will skip the line in front of people like me who have waited 9 years to get a visa… and still waiting. To put that number in perspective, the American government awards 50,000 DV visas every year. I could wait a lifetime and still never get to achieve my dream, but someone who has broken the law gets to live the dream every day.

While Rubio insists that we will all be on the same level, the law of possession will come into play. Does anyone really believe that the US government is going to deport someone illegal just so I can come into the country? That will never work.

The other issue I addressed on Levin’s show was the message conservatives need to communicate going forward. Republicans like John McCain keep saying Republicans need this reform to win another election. THEY ARE WRONG. Three little words will lead to a win: THE AMERICAN DREAM!

When was the last time you heard this mentioned? The country where if you worked hard, you could become anything you wanted and could achieve anything. No one could stop you or get in the way.

The answer to tyranny is not less tyranny – its Liberty and Freedom.

Reagan summed up my feelings about America perfectly in his “Time for Choosing” speech in 1964, where he told the story of a Cuban talking to two Americans, telling them everything he ran away from. The two Americans looked at each other and realized how lucky they were. But the Cuban insisted he was the lucky one because he had somewhere to run to…..

For me, while I don’t face the same oppression or anything like it, I still long for the American Dream and I hope and pray every day that I will get the chance to achieve it.

Rubio's amnesty: A path to oblivion for GOP

Comment:

I am a first generation immigrant. Came here before my second birthday with my parents and am an American in every way… but birth.

My parents and I came to America after WWII after waiting in line for the okay to come for more than 7-years. They came here on their own dime, with sponsors (close relatives who had been here for over 20-years)… which used to be required so immigrants would not end up on the government dole if they needed help and within a week of arriving first in New York and then at our end destination, Glendale CA, my father had a job (and soon thereafter 3) plus my parents had enrolled themselves in English classes at the local high school, night school. And from their night school connections came lifelong friends from all over the world whose common goal was to become respectable law-abiding American citizens.

Although I and later my sister and brother who were born here in the United States, were taught traditions from our homeland and told stories about our roots, the immediate goal and ultimate focus was that everyone learned and spoke English as well as American history and civics and that we as a family, an immigrant community, adopted American traditions and slowly learned to blend in.

Nobody, in our family or our extended immigrant circle of friends, expected a free ride or even help. Nobody expected America or Americans to change for us or adopt our ways, to print things in our language(s) let alone provide interpreters or bi-lingual teachers for our children, to TV shows in our native language(s) or to have laws changed or skewed for us or relatives still waiting to come to join us in America.

We, immigrants until very recently, were grateful for the opportunity to be in this country legally. Everyone expected to work hard, to learn English and to become Americans in every way. And they expected to follow the laws and rules or be deported.

The idea(s) that America would allow people who came here illegally to remain or even receive Amnesty; or that the law could be changed so someone like Arnold Schwarzenegger (once discussed) could run for president; or that someone like Barack Hussein Obama could become president without a thorough vetting process with all the questions and missing documents; or that people from around the world who followed the rules could fall to the back of the line behind cheaters to gain green cards; or that the Average American would be so low, un or mis-informed (or dumbed down) that they didn’t understand what was happening to the greatest country in the world, their country, as the rest of the world was laughing at them; or that Americans would question the wisdom of the U.S. Constitution and their Founders who wrote it was totally unfathomable to the immigrants of yesteryear.

And for the legal immigrants who are here now from every corner of the world, the prospects of what is coming from amnesty for millions, to gun confiscation, to healthcare rationing, to the breakdown of the basic pillars of society and even perhaps an attempt to re-write our already much damaged Constitution and Bill of Rights is frightening because they have already lived in counties under rules and rulers that most Americans are too oblivious to even think about, let alone understand.

How Democrats Plan On Stealing The Presidency In 2016

January 28, 2013 By Kevin “Coach” Collins – h/t to Liana Smith

To guarantee the will of the people would decide who would govern us our Founding Fathers gave each state the right to apportion its Electoral College votes (ECVs) as it wished.

Democrats don’t really like this because it opens the door to changes that would give people more of a voice in the selection of our presidents. Throughout the last two hundred years, they have often relied on voter fraud to win presidential elections.

This is why they are gearing up to fight a new plan for awarding ECVs being considered in six states totally controlled by Republicans. Barack Obama won all six.

The plan calls for an ECV to be awarded to a candidate for each Congressional District he/she wins, thus ending the “winner take all” system which invites fraud in a few districts which is so rampant as to smother the honest votes throughout a state.

This “win the district, win the ECVs” system is entirely legal and is the mirror image (comparing honesty to corruption) of the Democrats’ plan to award ECVs of some states to the winner of the nationwide popular vote. Doing this would mean that California would not even have to bother counting its presidential votes. It could just wait until the results of ballot box stuffing operations in the northeastern states were complete and say, “Here’s our 55 ECVs” to the Democrat candidate.

How things would change.

If this system was in place last November, six states Obama won in spite of being completely controlled by Republicans could have awarded GOP candidate Mitt Romney enough additional ECVs to win by a narrow margin.

The state-by state-differences in Romney’s favor would have been as follows: In Florida +15; Ohio + 12; Michigan + 9; Wisconsin + 5; Virginia + 9 and Pennsylvania +12 for a grand total of 63 new ECVs and a final tally of 273 ECVs.

The chances of this plan being passed in these states are very real. For various reasons, each Republican governor would be eager to sign this clearly Constitutional change into law.

Under this plan the Democrats could continue to win big cities with 112% of the population voting Democrat but not come close to stealing the ECVs of states whose people want a Republican president.

If we are ever to regain our freedom, passing this legislation is essential.

Lovefest on Syrupy Minutes to Manipulate You

By Marion Algier – Ask Marion

CBS Kroft 60 Minute BHO and Hillary Interview

Conservatives and Liberals alike called joint Obama-Hillary interview SOFT… soapy… syrupy (See: Syrupy Minutes - Formatted PDF Version of Full Report).  Hillary has now OFFICIALLY stood in support of TWO Presidents who lied to her and her country… What a legacy !!  Feeling used? abused? manipulated?  If not, you are either a Kool-Aid drinker or not paying attention.  And looking forward, Progressive Alinskyites and Soros-followers Obama and Hillary used this forum to begin the next phase of moving America toward globalism and controlling the election of 2016.  (Hillary Clinton super PAC launched.)

Hmmm… brings back memories of Hillary and Obama disappearing during 2008 campaign to attend Bilderberger meeting.

CBS' Kroft Introduces Hillary 2016 with Obama/Clinton Lovefest

In a 2016 presidential announcement masquerading as a lovefest masquerading as an interview, President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appeared together on 60 Minutes with CBS’ Steve Kroft to discuss how much they adore each other. Kroft, who is the water carrier for both the Clintons and the Obamas – he conducted the famed “Tammy Wynette” interview with the Clintons after the Gennifer Flowers revelations in 1992, and helped bury Obama’s failure to label Benghazi a terrorist attack last year – facilitated the softball rollout of Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Joe Biden, eat your heart out…

The interview opened with Kroft sycophantically hyperventilating about what an honor it was to do the interview: “This is very improbable. This is not an interview I ever expected to be doing. But I understand, Mr. President, this was your idea. why did you want to do this together, a joint interview?”

The love in the room was palpable. This wasn’t 60 Minutes. It was Sixty Shades of Gray.

After Obama said that Hillary was “one of the finest secretary of states we’ve had” [sic], Kroft then asked if there were any political tea leaves to be read. Hillary avoided the question, as did Obama, both of them flirting with the possibility of a Hillary 2016 run.

The interview went on in this tiresome fashion for some thirty minutes. While Obama and Hillary made googly eyes at each other, Kroft got in hard hitting questions like:

  • To Obama: Why were you so insistent about wanting her to be Secretary of State?
  • To Hillary: You’ve been quoted as thinking or telling people that there was no way you were going to take this job and you weren’t going to let anybody talk you into it. (Laughter) What did he say that night that made you [reconsider]?
  • To Obama: Has she had much influence in this administration?
  • To both: How would you characterize your relationship right now?

Thanks, Dr. Phil.

The Obama administration is open about the fact that Kroft is their go-to-guy when it comes to their propaganda effort. Even Politico has pointed out that Kroft and 60 Minutes have "fallen prey to accusations of favoritism …. most of Obama’s interviews with Kroft and ‘60 Minutes’ have generated little fanfare. Instead, the platform allows Obama to carry his message about the issues of the day to the American people, and drive the following days news coverage.”

Daily Beast and New York Post columnist Kirstin Powers, a committed liberal, weighed in on the Obama-Hillary Clinton love-fest on “60 Minutes” this morning on America’s Newsroom:

It really was something you’d expect from the state-run media. It was that kind of level of propaganda… This was a joke. You look at it and just not challenging basic things…” (Video)

This administration is not used to media criticism. That’s why it rips Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, and suggests that the “incentive structure” must be changed to prevent those outlets from presenting the other side politically. Were Obama king, there is little doubt he’d make all of his knights just like Steve Kroft. And Kroft did his job to keep the low-informed masses on the right path by feeding Obama and Hillary the softball syrupy questions, just like Congress did earlier in the week during the Benghazigate hearings, when Hillary Tap Danced and Feigned a Snap… Making Her Look as Guilty as Most Everyone in the Know Believes but even with the kid glove handling Hillary Let the Jihadist Cat Out of Bag.   Only a few Senators and Congressmen stepped up to do their job.

Brit Hume: Case For Hillary Clinton "Being A Great Secretary Of State Is Exceedingly Weak"

CHRIS WALLACE: Yeah, I want to pick up on that, Brit, because during the hearing, what struck me was the Republicans were tough on Hillary (Really??), on Benghazi and the Democrats weren't. But, both sides kept on saying what a great secretary of state she had been and to praise her service. And here's some of the points that have been brought up, some of her accomplishments. She helped assemble the bombing campaign in Libya to topple Muammar Qaddafi. She helped assembly the coalition that imposed the toughest sanctions ever on Iran. And, she established diplomatic ties with Burma.

Question, Brit, how do you rate Hillary Clinton's performance, record as our top diplomat?

BRIT HUME: I think those examples you cited would add up to a case for her competence. They do not add up to a case for greatness, after all, the groundwork on Burma had been done by the previous administration. And the administration properly followed through on it. You look across the world, now at the major issues. Are Arabs and Israelis closer to peace? How about Iran and North Korea and their nuclear programs? Have they been halted or seriously set back? Has the reset with Russia, which she so famously introduced with the photo-op in Moscow with the reset button, has they lead to a new and more cooperative relationship? Is there a Clinton doctrine that we can identify that she has articulated and formed as secretary of state? Are there major treaties that she has undertaken and negotiated through to a successful conclusion? I think the answer to all those questions is that she has not. And those are the kinds of things that might mark her as a great secretary of state.
She has certainly been industrious. She has visited 112 countries. Her conduct as secretary of state has been highly dignified. She does her homework. There have been no gaffes or blunders. So I think she has been a capable and hard working secretary of state, but I think the case for her being a great secretary of state is exceedingly weak.

2016 Could Provide the Election of the First Female President of the United States? but Hillary Doesn’t Deserve Our Admiration or Another Shot at the Presidency…. As Senator Lindsay Graham told Greta Van Susteren: “Hillary got away with murder”.

The Lesson in the Betrayal of Sarah Palin

by Ask Marion

Recently on his radio show Rush Limbaugh discussed an article which stated that there is no respected voice in the national arena articulating Conservatism. Such an advocate for Conservatism is crucial to reversing the direction of America as Obama drives us toward socialism while low-info voters gleefully sing Kumbaya in the backseat.

Well excuse me for pointing out the obvious, but we had an extraordinary advocate for Conservatism and look what happened to her. Judas on our side betrayed her – sold her reputation for 30 seconds of fame and favor with the media.

Even now, folks on our side are still beating up on Sarah Palin saying – Palin has lost her appeal – Palin is unelectable – Palin wasn’t smart enough – Palin wasn’t prepared and etc. Really… Flashback: Media Reviews of Governor Palin’s 2008 RNC Speech and because of Sarah Palin, the McCain-Palin Ticket was leading until McCain decided to suspend his campaigning for a few days to go back to D.C. get involved in the bailout talks.

So, this is how we treat our heroes?!? Those that stand up?

Many Democrat Party politicians/advocates are immoral, liars and cheats. And yet, they are treated like super-stars by the media. Democrats have the backs of their associates, no matter what. For example: Democrats never rebuked Clinton for receiving oral sex from an intern in the Oval Office. They simply launched a campaign claiming that any man in Clinton’s position would have reacted like him. Think about that folks, Democrats and the media lowered the standard of national leadership behavior, and the overall national moral standard, to cover their guy.

We Conservatives act as if our representatives must be the reincarnation of Jesus Christ – perfect in every way. At a Conservative’s slightest misstep, Republicans/Conservatives/Libertarians/Independents trip over one another backing away from the individual in an effort to get out of the media and Democrat’s line of fire. Even Fox News dissed Palin to appease the Republican Establishment before the 2012 GOP Convention

Clearly advocates of Conservatism are expected to walk on water by both political parties.

Word on the political street is we need a respected advocate for Conservatism to reach ‘low-info’ voters. While I do believe a new voice will emerge, I wonder who could be better than Sarah Palin? And how about we revive her image and our support of it? Or will we continue to to betray, her, ourselves and our new Conservative hero(es) as well?

Inevitably, Palin’s humanity was revealed; she was not perfect. But still, Palin is extraordinary and will be a tough act to follow.

Allow me to recap. Immediately following her amazing VP nomination acceptance speech, the media/the left went crazy consumed with hatred and a desperate desire to destroy her. Why? Palin was a beautiful, smart, articulate and a strong woman who boldly touted traditional values and a love for God, family and country – all of which are anathemas to the left. Plus Palin embodied all that the leftist feminists just talked about!!

No tactic was too low to discredit Palin. Thus, the left felt justified in attacking her children. They even attacked Trig, Palin’s Down Syndrome child and Sarah’s advocacy for special needs kids and their families.

Women in my family/circle ‘parroted’ the media talking point that Palin was bad for women. I thought, “You idiots, Palin is the epitome of everything the left/Democrats claim to desire for women – successful inside and outside of the home.”

While governor of Alaska, the left tried to drown Palin in lawsuits. Palin resigned to save her state from the cost and aggravation. The left’s mantra was Palin is a quit-er and republicans/conservatives joined their chorus.

Another thing the left successfully did to discredit Palin was to brand her “stupid”. Who among us could survive every word out of our mouth being judged from a point of view that you are stupid? Meanwhile, Obama ran around saying America has 57 states and the media completely ignored this faux pas, along with several others by Obama. Yet liberal lap dogs still get tingles up his leg when they hear him speak.

Despite relentless attacks by hostel interviewers (like CFR liberal progressive attack dog Katie Couric) in every TV interview, Palin always stood strong, boldly touting Conservatism. Man, you got to love this remarkable woman.

Also, completely ignored is Palin’s tremendous charisma which I witnessed first hand on numerous occasions. We launched one of our Tea Party Express national bus tours in Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s home town Searchlight Nevada – a huge dust bowl. Palin was our keynote speaker. Twenty-five thousand patriots attended with many camping out the night before to reserve their spot. Through the windows of our Tea Party Express bus as we arrived, I watched seniors who parked a mile away using walkers to make their way to the event.

Sarah Palin - Large Tea Party Rally Held In Sen. Harry Reid's Hometown Of Searchlight, NVSarah Palin - Large Tea Party Rally Held In Sen. Harry Reid's Hometown Of Searchlight, NV

The admiration for Palin felt a little like the scene in the Bible in which a woman said if I can just touch the hem of His garment, I will be made whole. In all of my 400 tea parties and 9 tours across America, no one, I repeat, no one affected audiences like Sarah Palin.

When a new conservative voice emerges on the scene, will we stand behind our hero no matter what, barring something immoral or criminal? Or, will we expect our guy or gal to be the second coming of Jesus. Have we learned something from the Republican/Conservative betrayal of Palin and their passivity and culpability in the media’s viscous vile destruction of her image?

Sarah Palin, on behalf of We The People, I wish to thank you for your profile in courage, trumpeting Conservatism (God, family and country).

*And perhaps instead of looking for a new patriotic hero we just need to look within, find our courage, arm ourselves with knowledge, educate everyone we encounter, and then support and run the hero that was given us in 2008. It is us that failed, not Sarah Palin, and God doesn’t dole out heroes and leaders like a new flavor of candy because we missed the boat! I’m just saying?!? I too saw Sarah Palin speak live and witnessed her charisma and genuine heart speaking to a mesmerized crowd of 23,000 after being introduced by political convert and lifetime Democrat, the Los Angeles President of the National Organization for Women to show her support… until the feminists showed her the error or her way proving that the left and feminists really are lemmings.. I feel that God gives us gifts and choice, and if we miss or don’t use the gift we have the chance to correct the bad choice, or he takes the gift away… and it could be a very long time before a new gift, a new opportunity, a new leader or a new hero is given.

Palin: ‘We Haven’t Yet Begun to Fight!’—Exclusive Interview with Breitbart News

In my research for the film I made on Governor Palin, The Undefeated, I was constantly amazed at the anti-establishment stands she took at every step in her rise to power. Moves that a conventional politician would run from, she embraced: in Wasilla, in Juneau, and in the rise of the Tea Party. Her ability to see “over the hill” to what is really important, what really matters, is what sets her apart.

Andrew Breitbart embraced the Governor as a fellow warrior in the long struggle against a detached and venal political/media complex. He lives on in spirit and through the work of those he inspired—including, but not limited to, those who report and contribute at his site.

The Governor has been at the forefront of the fight against the Permanent Political Class and, as such, inspired Peter Schweizer and myself in our work last night on Fox News with Sean Hannity’s specialBoomtown.” We consider ourselves honored at Breitbart News to have her share with us her thoughts on the road ahead in this exclusive Q & A.

1. What’s next for you?

Short term: I encourage others to step out in faith, jump out of the comfort zone, and broaden our reach as believers in American exceptionalism. That means broadening our audience. I’m taking my own advice here as I free up opportunities to share more broadly the message of the beauty of freedom and the imperative of defending our republic and restoring this most exceptional nation. We can’t just preach to the choir; the message of liberty and true hope must be understood by a larger audience.

Focus on the 2014 election is also imperative. It’s going to be like 2010, but this time around we need to shake up the GOP machine that tries to orchestrate away too much of the will of constitutional conservatives who don’t give a hoot how they do it in DC. DC is out of touch, obviously. Voices on the right like Mark Levin, Rush, and the writers here at Breitbart have come out strongly against the “go along to get along” politicians who wave the white flag before the battle even begins. We’re not going to be able to advance the cause of limited constitutional government unless we deal with these big government enablers on our side. And this all ties into the problem of crony capitalism and the permanent political class in the Beltway. We need to consistently take them on election after election – ever vigilant.

As far as long-term plans, the door is wide open. I know the country needs more truth-telling in the media, and I’m willing to do that. So, we shall see. And always in the center of it all I have an awesome, full, exciting, and large family living in a very unique part of America that keeps me hopping! I love it!

2. Where do you think the country stands at the beginning of the President’s 2nd term?

Before the November election I wrote that we all know what Obama’s second term will look like because we’ve seen his first. I said: “We know what we will get from a second Obama term. We will get the same failed policies. We will get Obamacare locked into law. We will get a debt crisis. We will get more inflation and higher gas prices. We will get tax increases. We will get fewer jobs. We will get more small businesses collapsing under the weight of higher taxes and unfair regulation. We will get more corruption and crony capitalism favoring the Obama administration’s friends. We will get less domestic energy development and increased dependence on terrorist sponsoring foreign regimes for our energy needs. We will get a ‘blame America first’ foreign policy that bows to our enemies and snubs our friends like Israel and leaves America and the world less safe. We will get less opportunity and security for ourselves and for our children.”

Predicting the future has never been easier because here we are! Already we see higher taxes, a stagnant economy, the same inflationary monetary policies, Obamacare looming like a dark cloud over small businesses, yet another demand for “debt ceiling” increases, continued stonewalling about the tragic Benghazi attacks, a Secretary of Defense nominee who has a history of being antagonistic to our ally Israel, and the attack on our Second Amendment rights by an administration that has no respect for the Constitution or the separation of powers.

The problem is that some on the Right are now skittish because of the lost 2012 election. They shouldn’t be. Conservatism didn’t lose. A moderate Republican candidate lost after he was perceived to alienate working class Reagan Democrat and Independent voters who didn’t turn out for him as much as they did for the McCain/Palin ticket in 2008. Granted, those same voters also didn’t turn out for Obama as strongly either. We had an election defined by a biased media plus millions of voters who sat it out in disgust. As long as we allow the media and GOP establishment to tell us who our nominees must be, we can expect to lose. I’m not interested in losing. America’s next generation can’t afford another loss.

3. The MSM have declared both you and the Tea Party dead and buried. Reaction?

I was raised to never retreat and to pick battles wisely, and all in due season. When it comes to defending our republic, we haven’t begun to fight! But we delight in those who underestimate us.

Palin Derangement Syndrome Continues

2016 – The Election of the First Female President of the United States?

Hillary Doesn’t Deserve Our Admiration or Another Shot at the Presidency

The Republican Establishment Wants New People and it seems that the Republican Establishment Has Declared War on GOP Voters. Rasmussen is one of the most perceptive political analysts and Rasmussen says the implicit message is that the Republican Party may not be salvageable, and that the need for a new structure is growing apace. Let us hope that Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Allen West, Rand Paul and some others are reading his columns. The Palin Affect is Undeniable! One Day After the 2012 Election… Who Did Republicans Consider the Leader of their Party?

“For someone who once described herself as ‘just an average hockey mom,’ Sarah Palin‘s life has been far from ordinary. In the space of eight years, the former beauty pageant contestant has gone from the mayor of a tiny Alaska city to becoming the first woman on a Republican presidential ticket and has emerged as a formidable political force.” – Eoin O’Carroll, CS Monitor

If you love Sarah Palin arm yourself with the facts and then get out there and share them. If you hate Sarah Palin, but when you honestly think about her and your feelings, you realize that you don’t know much about Sarah and your feelings come from media propaganda and info you got from friends and family who were also affected by the media and other uninformed friends, please give America, your future and Sarah Palin another chance. Start by reading the articles at the links below, read her book(s), find some videos of her speeches to listen to and if you get the chance… go hear and see her speak live. 2016 might be the election and time for the first female American President. Don’t be duped into following one of the most anti-American, anti-freedom and anti-patriotic women in America and American politics, Hillary Clinton, exemplified by her Benghazigate testimony, America needs a Constitution loving patriotic (man or) women… like Sarah Palin.

So the question is… Have we learned anything? If we are smart and resourceful both we and Sarah will have the last laugh. If we are not smart there won’t be much for anyone in America to laugh about after the next election. Marion Algier – Ask Marion~

The Gathering Red Storm

clip_image002

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton - The NoisyRoom

It’s difficult to not look at world events these days and feel as though we are sitting on a ticking time bomb. Things are heating up even more and the clock is now at about 30 seconds to midnight.

One wonders where all this will lead… Well, if the current course is kept, straight into hell, probably. That is by design and has been planned on for a very long time.

From Trevor Loudon:

If it comes to war, one joint Russia/China plan is for Russia to nuke the hell out of the continental United States. After Obama has finished decimating what is left of the US nuclear arsenal of course. The Russians will then invade Alaska and parts of Canada, but not the lower ’48. China will then invade across the Pacific. They will lose millions of troublesome young men, but they eventually get a foothold. Then their allies in Latin America will invade across the Mexican border… and the Red Dawn will break.

You can count North Korea in that mix as well. It has always been the plan of the Russians to use Iran as a proxy army to take control of the Middle East and the energy resources at play. But would any of them really come after the US?

The answer to that question is a definitive ‘yes.’ Being separated from most of our enemies by an ocean gives us the illusion of safety, but that should have been shattered after 9-11. However, America’s apathy runs deep these days and most people fell back to sleep or into an encompassing lethargy when a would-be dictator started trashing the Constitution and our God given rights. While we tear ourselves apart as a nation, our enemies are salivating, awaiting the right opportunity to strike.

I contend that Obama is setting us up for just such an attack. And as Trevor Loudon astutely points out, it will most likely come from several enemies at once. With a depleted nuclear arsenal and a massively weakened military, the hour is drawing nigh that an attack will be forthcoming. Think about it… if you were our powerful enemies, what would you do? You would attack of course when your enemy is at their weakest financially and militarily – like right about now. Consider this scenario:

  • North Korea launches 2 or 3 EMPs over the United States with no warning, or so little that we have no time to take evasive measures.
  • Russia invades Alaska and parts of Canada.
  • China launches an attack via the Pacific Ocean with millions of soldiers. The sheer numbers alone would overwhelm our current defenses.
  • Iran, Venezuela and Cuba attack from the South. With a fully open border and with no guard there whatsoever, hordes of terrorists would slash their way through with absolutely no pity or remorse for the bloody trail of bodies left behind.

Now consider if these all happen at once. Not possible, you say? Why not? Both Russia and China have been busy building their military forces up, while we have been scaling radically down in that arena. Iran now has nuclear capability as does North Korea. Aside from the energy resources in the Middle East, what would be the biggest prize ever? Bringing down America, invading her and conquering a once free nation. All our enemies need to do is team up, pillage and plunder, then divide the spoils of war. See Sun Tzu. It would be the ultimate redistribution of wealth.

If that is not enough to haunt your dreams, consider this… What if Progressives made deals for themselves with our enemies while betraying our closest ally? For land, resources, slaves, security, power… No? Then tell me why we are being so cozy with the Chinese, or the Muslim Brotherhood, or the Russians for that matter. With Obama’s reelection, he can be much more flexible. Why is Obama deliberately bankrupting our nation? And why is money massively being withdrawn from our banks? It seems to me that Obama and the Communists are really close in their goals for this country. Just this last week, CPUSA was cheering Obama on gun restrictions.

Remember, Communism as articulated in the various Communist documents, asserts that nobody owns anything – that the group owns everything. But because in practice that doesn’t work, an elite self-appointed overclass takes control and endeavors to enforce the ideals of Communism on the proletariat. Thus, implementing in practice a form of fascism, nominally called “Communism.” The Muslim creeds implement an unabashed fascism from the beginning. So our enemies all have fascism in common. Even those regimes that are nominally Communist, wind up implementing fascism because completely decentralized control doesn’t work when there is no ownership. You see, our enemies have a lot in common ideology wise and they all want the United States’ land and resources.

So, while our Progressives have been calling for the end of the Constitution, the Chinese have been busy buying up billions in real estate here in the US. They are now buying up our utilities and natural resources as well. They are buying up major companies such as battery makers as well. This is just Communist foreplay. The problem with the US is that we are an instant gratification society. Long range planning for us is what is for dinner tonight. Long range planning for our enemies is the demise and conquest of America.

We hear very little in the media about what is facing us militarily. Even Pravda sees more clearly what is going on in the States than many Americans do. As the gathering red storm advances on America, will we react in time to save ourselves? When the EMPs fly, it’s a little too late to rally the troops to our defense.

The Council Has Spoken!! This Week’s Watcher’s Council Results

JoshuaPundit on Jan 25 2013:

The Council Has Spoken! has spoken, the votes have been cast, and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match up.

Before we get started, let me remind you that there’s now a seat available on the Watcher’s Council up for grabs.

We’re currently looking at candidates, so if you’re interested, think you qualify or want to find out more about what’s involved in being part of the longest established blogging group of its kind, simply leave a comment with site URL and your e-mail address (which won’t be published) on any article over at Joshuapundit.

These don’t come up all that often and when they do they usually fill up quickly, so don’t snooze.

There’s a great deal of discussion going on among self-identified conservatives and Republicans about how to rebrand the party, gets its message out and change what appears to be its image

This week’s winner, Bookworm Room’s To win the future, conservatives need to give voters a positive image of a can-do America and a can-do Republican Party lays out her blueprint for that process in her usual witty and erudite style. Here’s a slice:

For the past four years, conservatives have been fighting a relentlessly rearguard, defensive action. For those same four years, conservatives have lost every rearguard, defensive action that they’ve fought. Or if they haven’t actually lost, the best that they’ve managed is a stalemate that stalls Progressivism, but doesn’t advance conservative values. Even the stunning 2010 “shellacking” proved ineffective, as shellackings really only work if you take over Congress entirely, rather than just getting half of it.

Conservative also don’t seem to be faring too well in the culture wars. To use abortion as just one example, in the 2012 election, conservatives lost the chance to take over Congress when Progressives successfully demonized two Republican Senate candidates who are pro-Life. More than that, it seems as if, contrary to past trends showing that Americans are inclined to a pro-Life view, a recent poll gave a definitive victory to American support for abortion.

Ironically, right up until the 2012 election, many conservatives (myself included) thought that these tactics would work. We believed that a jobless recovery (a stock market that benefited from Obama’s crony capitalism, even as more and more people became unemployed), creeping inflation, flabby home sales, depreciating savings, rising medical costs, and all the other signs of a sick economy, would turn voters against Obama.

We also thought that proofs of corruption (Fast and Furious), incompetency (Benghazi), and crony capitalism (Solyndra), would turn voters against Obama. They didn’t.

Sure we knew that Romney, although a good and intellectually brilliant man, was only a decent candidate, but we thought that, given all of Obama’s failures and dishonesty, Romney’s charisma deficit wouldn’t be a problem. And had Romney been a Democrat, it really wouldn’t have been a problem. He was a Republican, though, which meant that sterling character and brilliant economic chops were inadequate to fend off the extraordinarily vicious character assassination that the White House and the media launched against him.

We conservatives hadn’t counted on Americans buying such disgusting canards or ignoring ugly facts, but they did. Between the media running interference, general disinterest from voters more fascinated by Honey Boo Boo and Jersey Shores than by politics, and Americans’ probable fear of voting a black man out of the White House, conservatives got to watch Obama win

again.

In the wake of Obama’s victory, conservatives in the media and in the blogosphere have responded by amping up their previous tactics. Considering that Obama won’t be running again in 2016, spending all of our political capital and emotional energy attacking him doesn’t seem like a good use of resources. Be that as it may, conservatives are Obama is still Target No. 1. There certainly is a lot to get fired up about, most notably the way in which Obama seized upon Sandy Hook as an excuse to seize guns. Nothing will come of it, of course, since there are too many Democrats who like guns too, but Obama has successfully framed the issue to be one of life- and child-loving Democrats squaring off against gun-crazed, child-murdering Republicans.

Rather than running about like headless chickens who are still trying to peck the President to death with details, we might do better focusing on very specific weaknesses and not letting those weaknesses vanish from the public eye. To me, the most obvious are (a) the economy and (b) his handling of Benghazi.

In our non-Council category, the winner with a very different kind of article was Caroline Glick with Bye Bye London submitted by Joshuapundit. She recently participated in a debate in London about Israeli communities beyond the 1949 armistice lines and relates what happened there. Do read it.It’s an eye opener.

And forgive me if I not-so-humbly add I saw this coming some time ago, and if anything it’s even more relevant than it was 7 years ago. Europe will never forgive the Jews for Auschwitz.

OK, here are this week’s full results. Only Gay Patriot was unable to vote this week, but was not subject to the mandatory 2/3 vote penalty:
