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.

I agree about our leader or leaders but I see not one that I believe can do the job because those Republicans in the House and Senate will leave the dance with a Democrat because it's just such a cozy thing to do - you know...that whole reaching across the aisle thing.

I honestly cannot think of one single person who I want to back, but, of course, I must back someone.

Right now, Romney is still the man in my opinion, but only because I can't come up with another name.

Okay, after saying that, I can think of a few to look into: Thaddeus McCotter, Jim DeMint...I still love Tom Tancredo and would vote for him given the opportunity. There are also Governors out there that need looking at but for, Bobby Jindahl isn't one of them. Rick Perry wouldn't be considered as he actually wants to protect the country. No, no - can't have that.

Our party has a long history of having no guts.

Ticker, who do you have in mind?

Ticker said...

Rick Perry is not the man, period! He has allowed too many things to slide through or be stalled by his own party leader this session. The bill on voter ID, the immigration bill and others were stymied by the speaker, who is supposedly a Republican but is in bed with the Dems more times than not. Any governor who can not control his speaker can not be counted on to be in control of the office of POTUS and be able to control congress or the Republicans in congress. That and other reasons are why I will not vote for Perry for anything, period.

I have said all along had Romney been nominated he would have been elected and we would not have an idiot steering the ship of fools today.
Jim DeMint has promise, Jindal, no, they would eat him alive. His persona is like a wet dishrag so with whom can he communicate.

Romney can communicate , DeMint as I said has promise and is not a half bad speaker as well as having he head screwed on right. Perhaps a team of those two.
There are a few others but I will have to do more research on them prior to even mentioning them. Tancredo, ai't got a chance of a snowball in hades! Sorry but it would be a wasted vote .

Maggie M. Thornton said...

Ticker, I agree that Tancredo didn't have a chance, but I wish that he did. He was the most conservative Republican. For some reason, the public couldn't grasp who he was, but yes it would be a wasted vote. Such a shame.

Rudy has gravitas but he angers some conservative thinkers..

Fred G,

Rudy is a bit left of center for most conservatives on too many issues. He also has too much baggage. He needs perhaps to stay in NY and run for Senate.

Amen, Bryan

I'll send you a short outline on that entire passage sometime. It's called "the Little Things".
