Be Prepared

I don't know if you have read this Speech by Dr. Charles Krauthammer but I found it to be very interesting indeed. I tend to agree with Dr. Krauthammer on this and with his forecast as gloomy as it may be for conservatives. I am certain that many of the conservative who read this blog will take issue with me and that is all well and good but I will take my chances and say what is and has been on my mind for sometime.
Folks, we are in for a long hard road and must stop looking for the "perfect" conservative to lead this party. Ronald Reagan was by no means the "perfect conservative" as some would like to believe so it's time to "get over it" and start looking for someone who has intelligence, an ability to relate to the people from the center to the right but also one who stands firmly on the constitution, national defense, integrity and honesty.
Yes they may even be some skeletons in the closet but there is none perfect except the one who came and is no longer walking on this earth. It is time we get past expecting such a human being to descend from the heavens to save us from Obama. Hopefully Obama will be long gone before the second coming even though the left thinks it has already occurred in the form of the chief occupier as their messiah. They too will be in for a rude awakening in the not to distant future.
Those who voted for "hope and change" for the sake of change are among those addressed by their savior when he said" there will be some who will be disappointed". There are some who are beginning to sober up from drinking of the koolaide and are finding that their vision of change is not what they are getting. Unfortunately those of us who didn't drink the koolaide and were intelligent enough or perhaps stubborn enough not to vote for "the One" will have to suffer the same as those who did and are now being disappointed.
There were those of us who saw the red flags waving and tried to warn those who only saw "something different" and a change but they failed to listen, comprehend and to take action that would have prevented this travesty that is not occupying the White House.
We are going to see the Cap and Trade and the Obamacare enacted before the end of the year so we may as well tighten the belts and get ready for some very tough economic times. If you have money in the bank, I suggest you withdraw all of it with the exception of what is necessary for day to day operations. Hide it in a jar, under the mattress, in the mattress or where ever but do not leave it in the banks for they will all become nationalized prior to 2012, possibly as early as late 2010. Those who are not aligned with the correct party will find their money suddenly frozen and no longer available for withdrawal. If you don't think it can happen I suggest you read the history of Germany in the late 1930's when those who were not aligned with the Nazi party and or were Jewish were suddenly cut off from all banking, and other privileges that they had known prior to the coming of their "savior " . Yes, there were some in that group who had voted for "change' that his upstart on the political scene has promised. They like the Obamazombies who voted in 2008 were disappointed.

Get use to taking public transportation if there is any in your city or town because you will only be able to afford a small amount of gasoline at $8 to $10 dollars a gallon and a tax of so much per mile that you drive. Don't think it can happen? You didn't think cap and trade would be allowed to pass as well but it did and Nancy Pelosi has already proposed such measures two years ago and even though the chief occupier has said it won't happen stay alert because as Dr. Krauthammer stated, don't believe what he says, watch what he does. Just as he proclaimed that he was against DOMA, he has already give credence to such same sex unions by awarding gay government employees medical coverage and other "paybacks" are in the works. Don't believe what he says, only what you see him do.

I am sure you can already add to this list , at least if you have been paying attention rather than keeping an eye on the "middle shell" in the old game that "the One" has been playing with the American people since he started campaigning.

I leave you know to read the summary of Dr. Krauthammers speech and decide if you agree or disagree with not only his points but with perhaps my predictions as well.

Subject: Charles Krauthammer Speech/Comments on the 'New Economy' &Barack Obama

Recently, Dr. Charles Krauthammer spoke to the Center for the American
Experiment. He is a brilliant intellectual, seasoned & articulate... He is
forthright & careful in his analysis, & never resorts to emotions or
personal insults. He is NOT a fearmonger nor an extremist in his comments &
views. He is a fiscal conservative, & has a Pulitzer prize for writing.

He is a frequent contributor to Fox News &writes weekly for the Washington

The entire room was held spellbound during his talk.

We are living in uncharted waters economically and internationally. If you feel like forwarding this to those who are open
minded & have not 'drunk the Kool-Aid', feel free.


Here is a summary of Krauthammer's comments:

1. Mr. Obama is a very intellectual, charming individual. He is not to be
underestimated. He is a 'cool customer' who doesn't show his emotions...
It's very hard to know what's 'behind the mask'.
Taking down the Clinton dynasty from a politicalneophyte was an amazing accomplishment.
The Clintons still do not understand what hit them.
Obama was in the perfect place at the perfect time.

2. Obama has political skills comparable to Reagan & Clinton. He has a way
of making you think he's on your side, agreeing w/ your position, while
doing the opposite. Pay no attn. to what he SAYS; rather, watch what he

3. Obama has a ruthless quest for power. He did not come to Washington to
make something out of himself, but rather to change everything, incl.
dismantling capitalism. He can't be straightforward on his ambitions, as
the public would not go along. He has a heavy hand, & wants to 'level the
playing field' w/ income redistribution & punishment of the achievers of
society. He would like to model the USA to Great Britain or Canada.

4. His 3 main goals are to control ENERGY, PUBLIC EDUCATION, &NAT'L
HEALTHCARE by the Fed. govt.

He doesn't care about the auto or financial services industries, but got
them as an early bonus. The cap & trade will add costs to everything &
stifle growth. Paying for FREE college education is his goal. Most scary is
healthcare program, because if you make it FREE & add 46,000,000 people to
a Medicare-type single-payer system, the costs will go thru the roof. The
only way to control costs is w/ massive RATIONING of services, like in
Canada. God forbid.

5. He's surrounded himself w/ mostly far-left academic types. No one
around him has ever run even a candy store. But they're going to try & run
the auto, financial, banking & other industries. This obviously can't work
in the long run.

Obama's not a socialist; rather a far-left secular progressive bent on
nothing short of revolution. He ran as a moderate, but will govern from the
hard left. Again, watch what he does, not what he says.

6. Obama doesn't really see himself as President of the USA, more as a
ruler over the world. He sees himself above it all, trying to orchestrate
& coordinate various countries & their agendas. He sees moral equivilency
in all cultures. His apology tour in Germany & England was a prime example
of how he sees America, as an imperialist nation that has been arrogant,
rather than a great noble nation that has at times made errors.

This is the 1st President ever who has chastised our allies & appeased our

7. He's now handing out goodies. He hopes that the bill (& pain) will
not 'come due' until after he s reelected in 2012. He'd like to blame all
problems on Bush from the past, & hopefully his successor in the future.

He has a huge ego, & Mr. Krauthammer believes he is a narcicist.

8. Republicans are in the wilderness for a while, but will emerge strong.
We're 'pining' for another Reagan, but there'll never be another like him.
He believes Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty & Bobby Jindahl (except for his
terrible speech in Feb.) are the future of the party.

Newt Gingrich is brilliant, but has baggage.

Sarah Palin is sincere & intelligent, but needs to really be seriously
boning up on facts & info if she's to be a serious candidate in the future.

We need to return to the party of lower taxes, smaller govt., personal
responsibility, strong nat'l defense, & states' rights.

9. The current level of spending is irresponsible & outrageous. We're
spending trillions that we don't have. This could lead to hyper inflation,
depression or worse. No country has ever spent themselves into prosperity.

The media is giving Obama, Reid &Pelosi a pass because they love their
agenda. But eventually the bill will come due & people will realize the
huge bailouts didn't work, nor will the stimulus pkg. These were trillion-
dollar payoffs to Obama's allies, unions & the Congress to placate the left,
so he can get support for #4 above.

10. The election was over in mid-Sept. when Lehman brothers failed. Fear &
panic swept in, we had an unpopular President, & the war was grinding on
indefinitely w/o a clear outcome. The people are in pain, & the mantra of
'change' caused people to act emotionally. Any Dim Wit would have won this
election; it was surprising is was as close as it was.

11. In 2012, if the unemployment rate is over 10%, Republicans will be
swept back into power. If it's under 8%, the Dims continue to roll. If
it's between 8-10%, it'll be a dogfight. It'll all be about the economy.

I hope this gets you really thinking about what's happening in Washington and Congress. There's a left-wing revolution going on, according to
Krauthammer, and he encourages us to keep the faith & join the loyal resistance. The work will be hard, but we're right on most issues & can
reclaim our country, before it's far too late.

The Case of the Fallen Governor

It seems that Chuck Colson has summed up what many of us were thinking in light of the actions of Governor Mark Sanford. Shock, anger, sadness and yes bewilderment as to why a man who seemingly had it all would take the risk that he took and then be discovered. I urge each of you to read carefully and then take time to read the comments I have added at the end of the piece by Mr. Colson.

The Bewilderment of Sin
The Case of the Fallen Governor

June 26, 2009

In the past 24 hours since Governor Mark Sanford admitted his affair, I’ve run the gamut of emotions: sadness, depression, anger, and most of all, bewilderment.

The particular tragedy of Sanford is that he had been an outstanding governor. He’s attractive, engaging, and smart. He is an articulate and tenacious defender of family values. And he espoused the cause of Christ.

Now, his career lies on the ash heap of history. He’ll have to gracefully withdraw from political life and try to put his shattered marriage back together.

I mentioned sadness and depression. Sanford’s admission is simply the latest among pro-family conservative Christian politicians. Remember Senator David Vitter, involved with a prostitution service? Then just a week ago, Senator John Ensign of Nevada—a good friend I have known for years—he, too, admitted an affair.

And now Mark Sanford, probably the last man in American public life I would have expected to so incredibly disappoint us.

Sadness, depression—then there’s anger. These men dishonored their families and their offices and the Christian faith they profess.

But most of all, I am bewildered. Sanford had it all—a beautiful wife and family, high public office, and he was a viable candidate, perhaps, for President. Why would he throw it all away?

The answer came to me as I stewed over Sanford’s demise—and as I have reflected on my own life and my own failures, particularly before I knew the Lord.

We humans, you see, have an infinite capacity for self-rationalization. We reason that we can give in to those seemingly minor temptations—say an emotional attraction to a co-worker, or just one drink at the party—because we think we know the boundaries. We think our reason can keep us safe.

The problem is, as C. S. Lewis wrote in his timeless essay, “Men Without Chests,” that our reason is no match for the passions of the flesh. Lewis put it this way: Our stomachs (that is our appetites) can’t be controlled by our minds (that is, reason). Something else has to come in to play—and that is the spirited element, or our chests, as he called it. It’s our will being trained to do what is right and just.

Nearly every grave moral failure begins with a small sin. Because there comes a time, after we toy with sin, when one pull of the flesh causes us to cross the line, to disengage from reason, and to follow our appetites wherever they may lead.

And, I’m afraid, this is especially easy today. We’re told we can have it all, that we can be free to pursue any pleasure. Our wills are not trained to do what is good, but to do what pleases us. Many of us have become, as Lewis said, men without chests.

So, fellow Christians, don’t be self-righteous. Let the Sanford tragedy be a cautionary tale. Are you toying with sin? If so, for your self, your family, and your Lord—stop. Don’t put yourself in a position of compromise.

Instead, let us—you and I—prayerfully build up our chests and train our will that we might, by God’s grace and in fellowship with other believers who hold us accountable, not betray our Lord.

Remember as well the words spoken in I Corinthians 10:13(AMP): For no temptation (no trial regarded as enticing to sin), [no matter how it comes or where it leads] has overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man [that is, no temptation or trial has come to you that is beyond human resistance and that is not adjusted and adapted and belonging to human experience, and such as man can bear]. But God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature], and He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently.

Before standing in judgement of Governor Sanford we should also remember the words in Galatians 6:1 (NIV) Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted.

When are the Lies Going to Stop?

It would appear that the "liar in chief" is on a roll with lies and more lies. First he claims that he will not tax health benefits and now he is willing to do so. He claimed that he wanted the American people to have the same health coverage as he and the Congress have but today he is once again proven to be a liar. When is this empty suited pretender ever going to tell the truth?

Surprise of surprise the All Barack Channel has this a lead story!

ABC itself leads with Obama’s response that he wouldn’t stay within his own plan for his family:

President Obama struggled to explain today whether his health care reform proposals would force normal Americans to make sacrifices that wealthier, more powerful people — like the president himself — wouldn’t face.

The probing questions came from two skeptical neurologists during ABC News’ special on health care reform, “Questions for the President: Prescription for America,” anchored from the White House by Diane Sawyer and Charles Gibson.

Dr. Orrin Devinsky, a neurologist and researcher at the New York University Langone Medical Center, said that elites often propose health care solutions that limit options for the general public, secure in the knowledge that if they or their loves ones get sick, they will be able to afford the best care available, even if it’s not provided by insurance.

Devinsky asked the president pointedly if he would be willing to promise that he wouldn’t seek such extraordinary help for his wife or daughters if they became sick and the public plan he’s proposing limited the tests or treatment they can get.

The president refused to make such a pledge, though he allowed that if “it’s my family member, if it’s my wife, if it’s my children, if it’s my grandmother, I always want them to get the very best care.["]

Oopsie! So ObamaCare for thee, but not for me? Hope and change, baby!

A transcript is available below:

DR. DAVINSKI: If your wife or your daughter became seriously ill, and things were not going well, and the plan physicians told you they were doing everything that could be done, and you sought out opinions from some medical leaders in major centers and they said there's another option you should pursue, but it was not covered in the plan, would you potentially sacrifice the health of your family for the greater good of insuring millions or would you do everything you possibly could as a father and husband to get the best health care and outcome for your family?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: ... does she get hip replacement surgery even though she was fragile enough that they weren't sure how long she would last whether she could get through the surgery. I think families all across America are going through decisions like that all the time. and you're absolutely right that if it's my family member, my wife, if it's my children, if it's my grandmother, I always want them to get the very best care. but here's the problem that we have in our current health care system. Is that there is a whole bunch of care that's being provided that every study, every bit of evidence that we have indicates may not be making us healthier.

So once again the “liar in chief” is trying to sell We the People something that he himself is not willing to live with. Shall I say more?

More Liberal Whitewash

Over on Faultline USA blog , J.D.Longstreet wrote the following: “Less than six months after Obama became President of the United States, the US Senate passed a formal apology for slavery. For what it is worth, the act is a non-binding resolution. It is said to acknowledge the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery. Last year the US House of Representatives passed their own apology for slavery, as well. A number of states have passed apologies including, unfortunately, my own state. There are reports that a huge celebration is being planned for sometime next month. A pathetic gesture, I know, but, hey, these are liberals and everything with them is based on emotion and feel-good politics.”

Of course most of us, at least those who haven’t imbibed in so much of the Zombie koolaide that this can lead to the next step which is reparations, or will it. Evidently the leftist want to apologize for anything and everything it seems these day but when it comes down to actually paying out money can they be counted on as many I am sure are awaiting with bated breath, after all their great-great-great granddaddy was a slave and by dang the guberment owes me. Given the current tone in DC reparations is not so farfetched these days and more of a possibility that it was say 12 years ago or even 8 years ago. It is not unlikely to see the leftist Dems come up with some such bill right before the election in 2010 and hope that the conservatives will vote against it. This way they can advance their argument, which to them is an unchallengeable truth, that conservatives are racist and that is why they didn’t vote for reparations and can say if you know what is good for you , you will vote for us, the party that takes care of you especially when it comes to spending money. We never allow race to enter our heads when it comes to making such decisions as do the conservatives. They will continue to blather that the Republicans and conservatives are nothing more than red-necked bigots and on social welfare, immigration, refugee, security issues and now reparations are anti-black. That line has been hammered so many times it has become a part of leftist ,liberal folklore.

However it is just another one of the liberal lefts great attempts of whitewashing the truth. What, the liberal left would lie to one of their voter bases? Certainly, and research shows that their claims are nothing more than lies to keep the voters down on the plantation.

If you remember the leftist , especially those in the media went on for years that the evil George W. Bush did nothing to help in New Orleans and deliberately so because the victims were mostly black or Hispanic. That old argument continues to this day on leftist website anytime New Orleans, flooding or natural disaster is mentioned. Again it is nothing more than lies of the liberal leftist who use such arguments and statements to inflame that segment of their voters and keep them in shackles just as surely as their ancestors may have been in shackles at some point in history. Liberals and Democrats of course, voted to give more money to hurricane victims and for a longer period. Hardly surprising, since Liberals and Democrats are keen on giving away other people's money and, for them, a natural disaster is as good an opportunity for doing so as anything else. But wait, what's this? Research by Shanto Iyengar, a professor of communications at Stanford University, shows Democrats were prepared to give $1500 more to victims if they were white than if they were black. What, give less money to innocent victims just because they were black? I'm afraid so. Moreover, Democrats would give more money to whites than to other minorities such as Asians and Hispanics.
So it was left-wingers who used race as the big test.

Conservatives, on the other hand, were not influenced by race at all. The Republicans' view, as Iyengar put it, was more principled, as they supported individualism instead of handouts: "Independents and Democrats i.e. leftist liberals, on the other hand, are more likely to be affected by racial cues." Even The Washington Post, on June 23, had to concede that this evident bias was disturbing.

But it gets worse. Iyengar's study matches perfectly with an earlier study by Franklin Gilliam Jr of the University of California, Los Angeles, that shows although Conservative voters support tough treatment of criminals, Leftist liberals and others "support harsher measures when the criminal suspect they encountered was non-white".

Now that's not the way things are supposed to be. But if left-wingers and liberals use race in a way that conservatives on the right do not, in crime and now in something as deserving as hurricane relief, how about their attitudes on, say, social welfare? Surely, the Left would not discriminate on the grounds of race in that essential field?

Disturbingly, to use that ominous word, it turns out that Gilliam has done another study that looks at whether attitudes on welfare bludging are influenced by race and, you guessed it, they are influenced by it, but only if they are liberals. His exact words: "Depictions of white welfare queens also seem to induce whites who describe themselves as having liberal views about gender roles to arrive at extremely harsh views of African-Americans."

This has to stop. Unbridled research such as this will end up destroying all our cherished myths.

Why, before you can say "hope and change", we will be using facts and reality before we make political assumptions.

NOTE OF INTEREST: Hattip to Paula:

Here is a bit of history of slavery and the Democrats. Yep, the leftist libs have a lot to apologize for, not the conservatives.

In 1840, the very first national nominating convention of the Democratic Party adopted a platform which read in part:

Resolved, That Congress has no power ... to interfere with or control the domestic institutions of the several states ... that all efforts by abolitionists ... made to induce Congress to interfere with questions of slavery ... are calculated ... to diminish the happiness of the people, and endanger the stability and permanency of the union.

Government-Run Churches

Once again I am offering a Chuck Colson article for your consideration. When I read this article I was reminded of the Hate Crimes Legislation and how far it can be carried. So the answer to the question of can it happen here is certainly in the affirmative. Given the ideology of the current administration one could say that the scenario is not too far fetched. The current administration has already set aside a week for Gay Lesbian and transgender recognition, is pushing health benefits for gay government employees, is pushing to mandate that religious groups such as the Salvation Army doing non-profit community work must hire individuals regardless of sexual preference. The next step… government run churches? You decide.

Government-Run Churches
Can It Happen Here?

In China, Christians have a choice: Join a government-approved church—which is constantly monitored by the authorities—or join an underground church.

Thank heavens things like that don’t happen in the West, you may be thinking. Think again. In Britain, the government has begun sticking its nose in church business, telling churches what to do.

According to the Daily Telegraph, starting next year, the British government is going to begin forcing churches and other religious institutions to hire open, practicing homosexuals. It will happen under the provisions of the so-called Equity Bill, which forbids discrimination against homosexuals or transsexuals.

The law would “cover almost all church employees,” according to Deputy Equities Minster Maria Eagle. “The circumstances in which religious institutions can practice anything less than full equality are few and far between,” Eagle said. Church groups, she said, “cannot claim that everything they run is outside the scope of anti-discrimination law.”

What’s next—regulating the content of sermons? I’m not kidding. According to Eagle, “Members of faith groups have a role in making the argument in their own communities for greater” acceptance of gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgendered people.

Maybe it would simplify things if the government simply wrote the sermons for the pastors.

The Equity Law could lead to some interesting situations. What happens if a church, under pressure, hires a gay youth minister—and orders him to teach kids about the sinfulness of homosexual behavior? And I can only imagine the reaction of a British mosque when the religion police orders it to hire a lesbian secretary.

Neil Addison, a Catholic barrister who is an expert on religious discrimination laws, told the Telegraph that the Equity Law “is a threat to religious liberty.” “What we are losing,” he said, “is the right for [churches] to make free choices.”

He’s right. To put it more bluntly, the government is beginning to run the churches. And if they succeed, it will be the end of religious freedom in Britain.

Legislation like the Equity Law should concern Americans. So-called “social reforms” that begin in Europe soon wash up on our own shores.

And then, what will happen to the Church? Will we put our congregations under the authority of Caesar? Or will we resist and, if need be, abandon our elegant buildings and, like our faithful brethren in China, form underground churches?

The Bible teaches that the followers of Christ will be tested. We ought to be in prayer for the church in Great Britain, asking God to guide it as the government bears down.

Second, we ought to be preparing for similar laws here. Many churches are already under great pressure by homosexual activists to violate their own teachings under the guise of “fairness”—a much abused word.

This, by the way, is not a hysterical rant. The threat is very real.

Third, we ought to remind our neighbors that the First Amendment was written not just to protect the government from churches, but more so to protect churches from the government.

Cyber Czar Starting Early?

It seems that someone at FEMA is interested in my blog. I wonder , should I be flattered , or is this an attempt to bully me , intimidate me or what? The first visit occurred shortly after I posted

More Attacks, Vets and 2nd Amendment The other visits occurred after posting David vs Goliath

Could it be the new Cyber Czar is already hard at work, making us safer from “terrorist”. Of course the government denied that such action would invade the privacy of those just posting on the Web and would be used only for those receiving or sending overseas e-mails. We know that to be another one of their lines of barnyard bovine excrement as well. Once the Cyber Czar is given the green light, and it appears that FEMA, which of course falls under the line of command of Secretary Janet Napolitano and we all know her feelings toward Veterans and other groups who oppose “the WON” . This Cyber Czar would work supposedly for the Dept of Commerce and would have unprecedented powers. Had this been done under the last administration calls for impeachment would be ringing from the Halls of Congress and from the Lame Stream Media (LSM). But that will never happen in this administration since anything done gets a pass both from Congress and the LSM.

This act contains a particularly dangerous provision that could cripple privacy and security in one fell swoop:

The Secretary of Commerce— shall have access to all relevant data concerning (critical infrastructure) networks without regard to any provision of law, regulation, rule, or policy restricting such access…

In other words, the bill (S.773) would give the Commerce Department absolute, non-emergency access to “all relevant data” without any privacy safeguards like standards or judicial review. The broad scope of this provision could eviscerate statutory protections for private information, such as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, the Privacy Protection Act, or financial privacy regulations. The Act also gives the President unfettered authority to shut down Internet traffic in an emergency and disconnect critical infrastructure systems on national security grounds goes too far. Certainly there are times when a network owner must block harmful traffic, but the act gives no guidance on when or how the President could responsibly pull the kill switch on privately-owned and operated networks.

As a further note on this Cyber Security Bill it seems that “the WON” will not wait for this bill to pass through Congress and become law. He as already appointed a Czar to take command. Following reports that computer and email systems of the FBI had been shut down on May 29 due to a far-reaching virus, President Obama created a Cyber-Security Czar position, responsible for overlooking the country's network security. No regard was given for the Constitutionality of such a position, but then when has such a small , trivial thing as the Constitution ever stopped the Chief Occupier from doing as he wished.

Well it has begun just as I and others warned before and after the election of 08. Few listened then it seems and I wonder how many will listen now . I and I am sure others will continue to speak out and even at times shout out the warning of the criminality of this administration and the erosion of our freedom for many of us have paid too high of a price to remain silent.

Am I intimidated? To put it very bluntly , HELL NO!--I am not intimidated. I will not be intimidated as long as I draw breath on this planet. I will not run because I have faced more worthy opponents and did not run. I will not SHUT UP because this is MY COUNTRY, Ms. Napolitano, Mr. Chief Occupier of the WH. I have served honorable and was and am still willing to die for this country and NOTHING you can do will stop me from saying what I wish to say about the way this country is being destroyed by the likes of you. DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME?

You may visit my blog site all day long if you wish. I take it as a compliment for I must be saying something right or I would scarcely get the attention of such “mighty ones”.

Rather than a sneaky, cowardly visit , why not leave a comment and let the rest of the readers know your feelings on the subject. Of course most already know and that is why blogs such as mine and many others are speaking out loudly and often about what we see as the eroding freedoms taking place in this country today.

I would urge my fellow bloggers not to be discouraged, frightened or intimidated but instead be empowered by such “invasions” and keep on keeping on. You can bet your sweet that I shall.

David vs Goliath

This is supposedly just a practice, but now we can begin to wonder just when the real thing will be pulled off by this administration. After the statements by Janet Napolitano of Home Land Security and now this from FEMA ( the organization that is supposed to be in charge of disaster relief), along with the approval of the chief occupier, be assured that some contrived crisis will be forthcoming and the roundup will begin. I suppose a man-made disaster would suffice this administration to take such steps. Do not forget the motto of this administration: NEVER LET A GOOD CRISIS GO TO WASTE!

This is not a made-up item, since the link has been provided for all the doubters and naysayers. I googled this upon receipt to see if it were perhaps just another one of the e-mails that occasionally go around on subjects such as this. THIS IS FOR REAL! Remember the story of David as he went against Goliath? He GATHERED FIVE STONES. I suggest we start gathering our five smooth stones.

Now read the article below along with the links provided.

FEMA Web Page Shows Martial Law Exercise With Foreign Troops

Set for July 2009

This is a link to FEMA.GOV website page that details the upcoming nationwide training exercise in July 2009. This is directly cut and pasted the full text below from the site.

This is very alarming. This IS NOT an exercise for FEMA to practice disaster relief. This page states very clearly that this exercise will "focus exclusively on terrorism prevention and protection, as opposed to incident response and recovery".

AND THEY ARE BRINGING FOREIGN TROOPS INTO OUR TOWNS AND CITIES TO TRAIN TO POLICE US. As stated in FEMA website, "This year the United States welcomes the participation of Australia, Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom in NLE 09."

Imagine, armed Mexican troops protecting us from "terrorism" in the United States! Don't you feel safer already? ¿Dónde están sus documentos?

Rumors of foreign troops on our soil have been circulated for a long time. BUT this is not a rumor. It is a blatant fact as stated by FEMA on their government website. THIS IS AN INVASION.

During Katrina the federal government went in and disarmed everyone, even law abiding citizens. Recently, Tennessee passed into law a bill that states that Tennessee residents undoubtedly have the right to keep and possess their firearms during martial rule. Why did they feel the need to do this? And what does it mean when our government is running martial law drills on a nationwide scale?

We are told that this is just a training exercise. Should we believe that? Foreign troops in the Southwest sounds incredibly similar to what we learned, back in the 1980's, from undercover FBI agent Larry Grathwohl:

Watch the videos that are here: and here; and here.

Undercover FBI agent Larry Grathwohl told us of people whom he described in this way:

"They felt that this counter-revolution could best be guarded against by creating and establishing re-education centers in the Southwest, where we would take all of the people who needed to be re-educated into the new way of thinking and teach them how things were going to be. I asked, well what is going to happen to those people that we can't re-educate that are die-hard capitalists? The reply was that they would have to be eliminated. When I pursued this further they estimated that they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these re-education centers. When I say eliminate, I mean kill … 25 million people.

I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people. And they were dead serious."

National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE 09)

National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE 09) is scheduled for July 27 through July 31, 2009. NLE 09 will be the first major exercise conducted by the United States government that will focus exclusively on terrorism prevention and protection, as opposed to incident response and recovery.

NLE 09 is designated as a Tier I National Level Exercise. Tier I exercises (formerly known as the Top Officials exercise series or TOPOFF) are conducted annually in accordance with the National Exercise Program (NEP), which serves as the nation's overarching exercise program for planning, organizing, conducting and evaluating national level exercises. The NEP was established to provide the U.S. government, at all levels, exercise opportunities to prepare for catastrophic crises ranging from terrorism to natural disasters.

NLE 09 is a White House directed, Congressionally- mandated exercise that includes the participation of all appropriate federal department and agency senior officials, their deputies, staff and key operational elements. In addition, broad regional participation of state, tribal, local, and private sector is anticipated. This year the United States welcomes the participation of Australia, Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom in NLE 09.


NLE 09 will focus on intelligence and information sharing among intelligence and law enforcement communities, and between international, federal, regional, state, tribal, local and private sector participants.

The NLE 09 scenario will begin in the aftermath of a notional terrorist event outside of the United States, and exercise play will center on preventing subsequent efforts by the terrorists to enter the United States and carry out additional attacks. This scenario enables participating senior officials to focus on issues related to preventing terrorist events domestically and protecting U.S. critical infrastructure.

NLE 09 will allow terrorism prevention efforts to proceed to a logical end (successful or not), with no requirement for response or recovery activities.
NLE 09 will be an operations-based exercise to include: activities taking place at command posts, emergency operation centers, intelligence centers and potential field locations to include federal headquarters facilities in the Washington D.C. area, and in federal, regional, state, tribal, local and private sector facilities in FEMA Region VI, which includes the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.


Through a comprehensive evaluation process, the exercise will assess prevention and protection capabilities both nationally and regionally. Although NLE 09 is still in the planning stages, the exercise is currently designed to validate the following capabilities:

* Intelligence/Information Sharing and Dissemination
* Counter-Terrorism Investigation and Law Enforcement
* Air, Border and Maritime Security
* Critical Infrastructure Protection
* Public and Private Sector Alert/Notification and Security Advisories
* International Coordination


Exercises such as NLE 09 are an important component of national preparedness, helping to build an integrated federal, state, tribal, local and private sector capability to prevent terrorist attacks, and rapidly and effectively respond to, and recover from, any terrorist attack or major disaster that occurs.

The full-scale exercise offers agencies and jurisdictions a way to test their plans and skills in a real-time, realistic environment and to gain the in-depth knowledge that only experience can provide. Participants will exercise prevention and information sharing functions that are critical to preventing terrorist attacks. Lessons learned from the exercise will provide valuable insights to guide future planning for securing the nation against terrorist attacks, disasters, and other emergencies.

For more information about NLE 09, contact the FEMA News Desk: 202-646-4600.

FEMA leads and supports the nation in a risk-based, comprehensive emergency management system of preparedness, protection, response, recovery, and mitigation, to reduce the loss of life and property and protect the nation from all hazards including natural disasters, acts of terrorism and other man-made disasters.

More Attacks, Vets and 2nd Amendment

I received an e-mail from a friend of mine this morning and he had received the original e-mail from a friend of his. It is quite disturbing to realize that in such a short time how a massive war against Veterans and gun owners has been organized.

After you read this I would like for you to offer some feed back as to the rules in your State/county.

Have they changed to reflect the Napalitano mandates?

Have any of you who perhaps go to the VA or to Military hospitals for treatment been asked these questions?

I can attest to the fact that these questions are asked at the VA I go to for treatment. The questions have changed drastically. The questions use to pertain to the individual such as , Have you felt depressed lately? or; Have you felt like harming yourself? These questions are no longer asked but instead the ones posted are now asked. This came about shortly after the” Nappy manifesto” about Vets.

The following is the original e-mail:


This was sent to me from a former shipmate. He says:

I can find nothing in Snopes that contradicts this, and I was asked these 3 questions on my last visit to the VA! (name removed )

This one is for you Veterans.

I have never heard of this before, but I thought it was important enough to pass along here.

"I had a doctor's appointment at the local VA clinic yesterday and found something very interesting I would like to pass along.. While going through triage before seeing the doctor, I was asked at the end of the exam, three questions.

(1. Did I feel stressed?

(2. Did I feel threatened?

(3. Did I feel like doing harm to someone?

The nurse then informed me, if I had answered yes to any of the questions, I would have lost my concealed carry permit as it would have gone into my medical records and the VA would have reported it to Homeland Security.

I am a Viet Nam vet and 15 year cc permit holder. Looks like they are going after the Veterans."

My friend offered this as further proof that there is a vendetta against Veterans: (**and gun owners as well)

I have had a ccw permit for 5 years. I have applied for renewal and it is pending. I received a letter from the Sheriff's office in Mecklenburg County, NC (Charlotte) that they needed a copy of my DD 214. This was not a requirement 5 years ago when I initially applied for my ccw. Yesterday, I was told that the "State now requires us to get a copy of the DD 214" because I checked the box where it says I was honorably discharged from military service. I produced a copy of the document. The person at the desk said they are getting a lot of complaints about this new requirement. I am sure it is not a coincidence that thus new requirement follows on the heels of Homeland Security's Janet Napalitano's crowd tagging everyone who ever drew a military paycheck as a nutcase and should be watched. I am in the process of back tracking on this "new requirement" from the State because (1) my wife (ccw permitee) and (2) we keep track of anything to do with our laws and reqs when it comes to the 2nd Amendment in NC. I have not seen Jack about the "new requirement."

The whole issue of targeting returning Vets from the sand pile is the tip of the iceberg, especially in light of the 87 year old (WW II Vet) whack job who shot a guard at the Holocaust(Museum). Yesterday's shooting is only going to validate the Department of Homeland Security's position on veterans. The State and local LE's are being told to keep and eye on vets and this latest nonsense about producing a DD 214 for a ccw is proof enough for this American.

Be forewarned and be aware.

The Obama administration has gone on record as considering veterans and gun owners as potential terrorists.

If you are a veteran, you've been warned.

If you know veterans, please pass this on to them

Israel --Part III

In part one I wrote about the Miracle of Israel’s foundation beginning with the birth of Isaac to Abraham and Sarah who were at the advanced age of 100 and 90. Moving forward in the history of Israel and the Miracle that kept the nation alive we had Joseph who because of the jealousy of his brothers was sold into slavery and taken to Egypt there he gained the attention of the King and became the second most powerful person in the country. When the famine spread across the land where the children of Israel were living the same brothers who had sold Joseph into slavery traveled to Egypt and were welcomed by their brother thus saving a remnant of Israel. There are many more miracles, or what one could consider miracles which occurred during the history of Israel. After the destruction of Jerusalem during the Roman Empire period the nation was scattered across the world. In 1948 the Restoration of Israel began, a miracle within itself and with this I begin the final part of the Miracle of Israel.


May 14-15, 1948 - Israel became a recognized nation.

In Amos 9: 14 find these words of promise and the picture of what has occurred. And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit [them]; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.


God’s promise to David: 28 My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him. 29 His seed also will I make [to endure] for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven. 30 If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments; 31 If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments; {break: Heb. profane} 32 Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes. 33 Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail. {will...: Heb. I will not make void from him} {to fall: Heb. to lie} 34 My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. 35 Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David. {that...: Heb. if I lie} 36 His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me. 37 It shall be established for ever as the moon, and [as] a faithful witness in heaven. Selah.

-Israel may be DISPERSED, DESPISED, DISPOSSESSED - but they will never be DESTROYED!

Not only was the beginning a miracle, but the continuation and survival as well.

The Red Sea couldn’t drown them

The Nations and Dictators of this world have been unable to DECIMATE Israel and to destroy her people and failed.

Pharaoh, Nebuchadnezzar, Alexander, Nero, the Turks, Hitler, the Russians, the Arabs and some from this country as well. It would seem as if the current administration has this goal in mind as well but as the others they will fail as well.

It is an amazing thing that when others leave their lands, they get absorbed in the land they go to and lose their distinctiveness, but not so with the Jewish people

Israel and the people of Israel are much like this. West Palm Beach Florida just 3 miles off the coast is the Gulf Stream. It Flows northward through the Atlantic Ocean like a river - Sail there and you will see in the waters a razor sharp line separating this from the ocean itself with the colors changing from blue/green suddenly to deep indigo. It is warmer water, like a river, flowing in the ocean and doesn’t get mingled. Israel and its people are similar to the Gulf Stream which flows through the ocean and somehow does not get mingled. For eighteen centuries in the midst of deep persecution the laws, the culture and its stature has survived. That within itself is a miracle.

There is but one way to destroy Isreal and her people and we find the answer in Jeremiah 31: 35 Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, [and] the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts [is] his name: 36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, [then] the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.

In other words you would have to be able to control the power of the universe.

You can no more destroy Israel than you can stop the sun from moving through the heavens.

And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God


This was and is still consider a military miracle by many.

In 1948 you had a nation established with only 650,000 people surrounded by seven ARAB states with 40 million people that hated them swearing that they would drive Israel into the seal and drench the soil with Jewish blood. Up until that time if a Jew was caught with a gun he was prosecuted. The people of Israel had no implements of war to speak of so they took old autos, buses and welded boiler plates to the sides in order to make a semblance of a tank. They took hoe handles, broomsticks and painted them to look like guns and in the front lines they would alternate guns with broomstick and fire off firecracker to make it appear that they had more guns than they actually had.

When the Arabs invaded Israel they went through groves were bee hives were located. When the hives were turned over during the attacks they began to sting the invading Arabs. The Arabs dropped their modern weapons and fled. The Israelis were able to go back into the groves after the bees had settled down and returned to the hives and pick up much needed weaponry.

When the Syrians and Iraqi’s came across the Jezreel Valley to invade Israel they came down with dysentery and they became so weak that they could not fight. Israel captured the sick soldiers in the valley without so much as a fight. It is said that at one point over 20, 000 Arabs were captured by only 400 Israelis.


- JUNE of 1967 the Six Day War began and outnumbered 80 to 1 Israel was victorious.

One could also say that Israel is a SOCIOLOGICAL MIRACLE as well.

There were 650 ,000 people who came from sixty one different countries to settle there in Israel. It is difficult to imagine that many people from that many nations coming together to make one nation in such a short period of time. One Sociologist estimated that it would take three different generations to make this happen – over 100 years but that same man came back and visited and said: “What I said would take 3 generations to do, you have done in half a generation!”

Moshi Diane, a leader and hero of Israel said: “We don’t have a melting pot, we just have a pressure cooker!”

There has been a blending together of this people into a oneness that is unparalleled in the world. That indeed is miraculous.

Israel is also a LINGUISTIC MIRACLE.

In Israel the children taught and are teaching to the parents the mother tongue of Hebrew. At one time Hebrew , even tough taught in schools was fast becoming a dead language but it has been revived.

Israel could also be called an AGRICULTURAL MIRACLE

How so? If one would look upon thisRocky Land” you would say nothing would grow there. Almost 60% of that land is considered Desert. There is sparse rainfall and that rain falls only in the winter months. The people have established an irrigation system and pumped in water to where there was no water and the desert has begun like a rose. When Israel was forced to give back part of the land which was being actively farmed and yielded an unusual high quanity of crops, once the Palestinians settled there the land once again turned to desert. It seems the Palestinians didn’t have the drive nor the will to do what the Israelis had done over the years and that is work to make the desert bloom.

There are only six nations in the world that produce enough food for themselves and Israel is one of them. They can grow strawberries and cotton like you have never seen.

The Valley of Jezreel was at one time a malaria filled swamp and fires had to be built to keep flies and other insects away. Today it is the bread basket of Israel and of course on of the areas of contention with the Palestinians. It is a beautiful fertile valley where three to four crops per year are harvested. With out this land Israel would not be able to sustain its self and of course the enemies of Israel know this.

The major problem in the world today is not Iran and it’s drive for nuclear capabilities or North Korea firing off its missiles to garner attention, it is Israel and Jerusalem. As we have read and heard the Arabs will not settle for Jerusalem being the capital of Israel nor do they even wish to share the city with Israel. They only wish for Israel to be gone. For these people and much of the world Israel has become “Burdensome” (In the Hebrew language it describes the idea of a heavy weight. ) The UN and even the current administration in this country appear to be intent upon Israel becoming non-existent but that is not going to happen. It appears that the majority of the world is turning against Israel. In Zechariah 12:3 we find these words: “And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it”.

At that point many ask what will occur and indeed another miracle will occur. In verse 9 of the same chapter of Zechariah we find these words: And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem

Israel is indeed in so many ways a miracle as I have attempted to show in this series. I hope that it has been informative and that you have enjoyed this bit of history both from the secular and from a Biblical stand point.
