Missouri "Militia" report

There was a report put out by a group called the Missouri Information Analysis Center, that listed possible connections to "militias" that law enforcement should watch out for. The so-called warning flags this group listed would be items such as displaying a Gadsden flag (which I had up outside my front door until it got too tattered to keep up), displaying bumper stickers for third party candidates such as Ron Paul or Bob Barr, etc. From what I could see, it listed things that any America-loving conservative or libertarian might do. Biased? Yes. Glen Beck had a section on his show about it.

Reports like this, I sit on. And what I mean by that is I'm going to wait a few days for more information. I wasn't quite sure if this was some government report that was going to be put into immediate action, or if this was some group that just poppped off with this BS, or what the deal was. Got a couple of emails over it. My initial response was to print off a Gadsden flag, tape it to a pencil and hang it up at my personal rat cage at the office. Co-workers were asking what the deal was, and I told them about the report. Said I was forming the Militia of Dave. We're against higher taxes. We're against big government. And we're against the wearing of spandex by anyone over 200 pounds.

My co-workers all wanted to join. So I let 'em.

Anywho, just got this little tidbit in my inbox when I came home tonight:

The chief of the Missouri highway patrol is blasting a report issued by the Missouri Information Analysis Center that linked conservative groups to domestic terrorism, assuring that such reports no longer will be issued.

(.....)

He said the militia report was "created by a MIAC employee, reviewed by the MIAC director, and sent immediately to law enforcement agencies across Missouri. The militia report was never reviewed by me or by the Director of Public Safety, John Britt, at any point prior to its issuance. Had that report been reviewed by either my office or by leaders of the Department of Public Safety, it would never have been released to law enforcement agencies," wrote Keathley

The report simply "does not meet" the needed standard for "intelligence," he said.

"For that reason, I have ordered the MIAC to permanently cease distribution of the militia report. Further, I am creating a new process for oversight of reports drafted by the MIAC that will require leaders of the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Department of Public Safety to review the content of these reports before they are shared with law enforcement. My office will also undertake a review of the origin of the report by MIAC," he ordered.

Now, that there is a massive, public slapdown by the top law enforcement official in Missouri.

I wonder if he's got a Gadsden flag tucked away somewhere?

Am I Simon Jester?

Yes, I think I am.

We are Simon Jester.

We are not anarchists.

We are not Far-Right or Far-Left. We are the seventy percent in the middle.

We are not Capital “L” libertarians, although we do have sympathies with their platform.

We are neither bitter clingers nor conspiracy nuts.

What we are is a group of folks that think we see liberty and freedom eroding in our beloved United States. We see the policies and agendas of the hirelings in Washington D.C. heading toward an abbreviation if not outright abrogation of the Bill of Rights.

We think that the Federal government is grasping to consolidate power using the current crisis, since as Rahm Emmanuel said, it’s a terrible thing to waste. We think the Federal government, not just this administration, is more interested in self-serving personal, political, and party power than it is in actually doing its best to do the least.

There's a few things in the manifesto that I can't quite get behind, but I agree with 98% of it. I'm not going to let that other 2% get in the way.

Our voice has been ignored, even to the point of telling the citizens of a state that a duly enacted and overwhelmingly voter-approved constitutional amendment would not be allowed to stand due to political correctness.

Our representatives have listened to us on occasion however; only to be overturned by a penstroke from the Executive Branch, like when we said we didn’t like the idea of bailing out the auto industry.

Our legislature has pretended to listen to us about our need to protect our country’s borders, but then come back and tried to tell us that they have changed their minds. All the while trying to curry favor to their own districts with pork projects.

We flood D.C. with calls and letters and emails demanding that the administration not burden our grandchildren with huge government debt that will necessitate huge tax increases, but are told that our thoughts on the matter have no bearing because some things are just too big to fail; only to hear the same legislators come back a few months later and demand punitive taxes on those companies it gave money to against our wishes.

The current administration has appointed all of these extra-constitutional “Czars” to oversee what they view as problems in our country and in our world, including an avowed Communist.

This administration, as well as far too many legislators, clings to a philosophy of man-made global warming that is far from settled science and has decided that “Cap and Trade”, regardless of the huge burden that will place on the consumers, is necessary to limit carbon emissions. The fact that it has been tried in Europe and FAILED to limit carbon emissions doesn’t matter because this program will generate huge tax dollars for the government while at the same time penalizing the consumers of energy in the form of higher energy bills.

Another thing that has failed in Europe and elsewhere is the idea of universal health care. Yet still our government is racing headlong towards rationed medical procedures, diagnostics, medicines, and preventive care because it is yet another way to control the population. It is very hard to tell the government “No” when you or your spouse, or your child, depend upon the government owned and run kidney machine, insulin shots, or cancer treatments.

And now our Federal government has asked for more power. It isn’t even trying to hide it anymore. They want the power to regulate to the point of confiscation the administration of every business in the United States, just for our own financial safety or course. They want to regulate our salaries and compensation. They want to bankrupt the coal industry, which provides eighty (80 !!) percent of all the power in this country. They don’t want us to be able to drill for oil or natural gas. But at the same time they don’t want to allow the transmission of power from wind farms or solar farms across the countryside because they say it will affect the natural beauty of the desert or they don’t want their view cluttered out past Martha’s Vineyard. They want control of the means of production, the type of crops we grow, and the structure and location of the buildings in which we live. And, despite their protestation to the contrary, they want to disarm us. Too much has slipped out about that for them to be able to deny it any more.

And yes, we repeat, they now are asking for more power. This isn’t just theft, it is a bloody strong-arm robbery with a knife in your ribs.

Now, here is where Simon Jester comes in.

This whole thing isn’t about the Democrats or the Republicans, because they are both taking us to the same place and they aren’t afraid of us anymore. It is about our Constitutional form of government. The Rights were there before the words were written, for they are inherent in all people. They don’t come from government; government, no matter how hard it tries, cannot dissolve them. Now, here we the people are, having all these Tea Parties, trying to show our government that we, the seventy percent or so of the country who is right smack dab in the middle trying to raise our families and give our children better lives than we had, are tired of this grab for power. These Tea Parties, where no one actually throws anything in the harbor, are getting hardly any coverage from the press. In fact, the TWO counter protestors at the March Tea Party in Orlando got as much or more local coverage than the under-reported thousands who attended the rally. So, short of actually committing acts of vandalism and felonious assault, how are we going to get noticed?

Simon Jester. A symbol, since “The Moon is a Harsh Mistress” by Robert A. Heinlein was published in 1966, of dissent against authority. Let the press, and the government, and your neighbors know that you are paying attention to what the Federal government is trying to do. Let someone ask you what that little devil underneath the word “Citizen” across your chest means and then explain it to them. Explain to the one pool reporter who shows up at the next Tea Party that you and Simon have your eyes open and are watching as the government tries to control your life. Explain to your pastor, or your waitress, or your barista at Starbucks, that our government is power hungry and that you and others like you are trying to be heard.

We are Simon Jester. So are they.

And so are you.




Read who they are, and decide for yourself. I've known that I was fed up with the FedGov power grab for a while. It's time we started pushing the bastards back where they belong. Legally.

In case you hadn't noticed

I'm busier than a one-legged man in an ass kicking contest.

I've got no less than three different trips to make in April, and another two, possibly three in May. My wife wakes up and wonders who the man in the bed is until she's awake enough to recognize me.

Just please bear with me.

So much blogfodder

So little time. If it's not the $6,000,000,000 boondoggle of "National Service", (YAWOL, MINE FURHUR!), then it's the Democrat American Communist Party raising the spectre of the "Assault" Weapons Ban, (Eeeek! They look scawwy! Ban them! BAAAAAAAN THEM!), or it's the Useless Nations still trying to impose their Tranzi plan on America, (by any means possible!) or, or or...

Hell, I don't even have time to read all about how the Left is destroying America. There's too much to read.

I've reached the point of this guy.

I do not fully know what to think about this

This is called the Obama Deception. I think it should be called the buy out and financial control of the U.S. then the world.

It has 12 segments, the first of which is 1 1/2 hours. It is something to watch if you have time and energy to think about what is being said. A lot of it sounds conspiratorial. Though, it could also make sense of current events.

If anyone has time to view it, please let me know what your take is.

Obama is no longer responsible for just ruining our economy.

He is being held responsible for ruining the Global Economy. (LOL)

BRUSSELS — Transatlantic tension over the handling of the global economic crisis intensified on Wednesday when the prime minister of the Czech Republic, which holds the European Union presidency, described the U. S. stimulus measures as the “way to hell.”

Addressing the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France, Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek argued that the Obama administration’s fiscal package and financial bailout “will undermine the stability of the global financial market.”

Talk show president may not be so welcome

President Obama, champion of abortion is supposed to be the key note speaker at Notre Dame's graduation ceremony this year. There is a lot of uproar and anger because Notre Dame is a Catholic instution and does not support abortion. So the question is, what is the thought process of bringing one of the most pro-abortion people in as the key note speaker???

I think Spector sees his chances of reelection in the toilet

Apparently Senator Arlan Spector, R-PA, has decided to withdrawl his support from the "freedom of choice act" as a swing vote. But wait, his decision is not final:

In a speech on the Senate floor, Specter said the dismal economy makes it "a particularly bad time" to enact the Employee Free Choice Act -- the so-called card check law -- but that he might reconsider "when the economy returns to normalcy."


What he is saying is I want to be reelected, then I will be back to my old B.S.

I know our immigration system is cracked/broken but

I am really trying to get my head around how this kind of situation happens. It seems to me that there would be a couple of databases that could be checked quickly to avoid citizens being locked in with immigrants. My second question from this article is why are the immigration holds being put in with the main stream prison population?

The cases of two Bay Area men illustrate two of the problems highlighted by the Amnesty report: Detainees often are denied due process, and the burden is on the detainees to prove they don't belong in custody.

Afghanistan-born Lemar Nasir of Fremont and Thailand-born Yuttasak Simma of San Francisco were taken into ICE custody in 2007, though both are naturalized U.S. citizens.

Though the men told immigration officials of their citizenship, neither had papers to prove it, and both languished in immigration custody in Santa Clara County jail - Nasir for 11 months, Simma for seven - before a lawyer finally secured their release.

Sin Yen Ling, an attorney with San Francisco's Asian Law Caucus who represented the men, called the cases a violation of the men's constitutional right to due process.

"Absent congressional authorization, you cannot use immigration laws to lock up a citizen," she said. "And this is not unusual: I have on my docket right now five to seven of these cases. People have legitimate claims to citizenship, and they inform ICE, yet there's no formal procedure to figure out what to do with these folks."

Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there

This article from the N.Y. Times discusses the possible senarios of how Goverment run healthcare is going to work and how it competes with private sector health insurance. It discusses a number of options including the government demanding lower prices than private sectors are able to negotiate. Of course this is going to happen. That is what Medicade and Medicare have been doing for years. What they pay does not even cover the cost of overhead in most cases. We knew this was going to be a downfall from the minute it was first mentioned. I think that Private Insurance is going to have to find ways to compete by giving their insured better coverage. Universal healthcare will be limited. Doctors currently and in the past have been able to decide not to take Medicade and Medicare, and a lot of them don't. I think we may see many doctors switch to cash only. Unless providers are still allowed to choose to take it or not, with this socialist plan, which I highly doubt, all of the good providers will be gone and we might as well be in England, waiting in line for essential services!

Pardon my French

But FUCK YEAH!

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the First Regular Session of the Sixtieth Idaho Legislature, the House of Representatives and the Senate concurring therein, that the state of Idaho hereby claims sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government by the Constitution of the United States.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this serves as notice and demand to the federal government, as our agent, to cease and desist, effective immediately, mandates that are beyond the scope of these constitutionally delegated powers.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that all compulsory federal legislation that directs states to comply under threat of civil or criminal penalties or sanctions, or requires states to pass legislation or lose federal funding, be prohibited.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Chief Clerk of the House of Representatives be, and she is hereby authorized and directed to forward a copy of this Memorial to the President of the United States, the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives of Congress, and the congressional delegation representing the State of Idaho in the Congress of the United States.
Now I hope and pray that this passes the Idaho State Senate, and that the Democrat American Communist Party doesn't kill it like they did in New Hampshire.

You know, when you're a military brat like the Ragin' Mrs. and I both are, you always hesitate a bit when people ask you "Where are you from?" Well, I was born in Kommiefornia (spithackgag), I then moved around all over the USA before my father retired to Idaho, and then I joined the Army a couple years after high school and moved around even more. But in the past few years after we bought our property, the Mrs. and I have been able to proudly state that we're from Idaho. And the more I see, the prouder I am of the state I choose to call home.

and now it begins

We knew it was coming. Here it is.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed declaration that greenhouse gases pose a health danger may increase pressure on Congress to pass new limits on emissions from coal-fired power plants and factories.

Obama is still having issues with his budget

Wee little bambam has to go to Capital Hill to persuade Democrats, his own party, to pass HIS bill. It is nice to see that not just the Republican party is concerned about the staggering numbers of having to borrow over $9.3 TRILLION over the next 10 years, which is $2.3+ trillion MORE than was estimated by the White House. In 5 years this will double the national debt, in 10 triple it. The indication, from the White House, is that Obama is willing to accept cuts anywhere except his programs, health care, education and clean energy.

Gee Mr. President aren't these the things that are making the debt so huge? What happened to cutting the national deficit? Keep in mind when he was discussing cutting the national deficit, he was only talking about the annual national spending deficit, not the one that has China and Japan all but owners of our country.

Finally someone on Capital Hill gets it

WND reported Posey's H.R. 1503, an amendment to the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971, would "require the principal campaign committee of a candidate for election to the office of president to include with the committee's statement of organization a copy of the candidate's birth certificate, together with such other documentation as may be necessary to establish that the candidate meets the qualifications for eligibility to the Office of President under the Constitution."

Posey is suggesting something that should have been introduced a long time ago.

Just because what he is asking for is common sense and may get in the way of the Democrat party he has people like, U.S. Rep. Neil Abercrombie, D-Hawaii calling his judgement skewed and saying that by the time someone is running for President that their citizenship doesn't matter.

I personally welcome Posey and hope he keeps up the good work.

BWAAAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! Better late than never!

SEATTLE - Seattle will be a one-newspaper town after Tuesday, when the 146-year-old Seattle Post-Intelligencer prints its last edition.

The P-I will continue to live on the Internet with a much smaller staff.

Parent company Hearst Corp. says it has failed to find a buyer for the newspaper, which it put up for sale in January after nine years of financial losses.

The end of the print edition leaves The Seattle Times as the only major daily in the city.

The announcement comes about two weeks after Denver's Rocky Mountain News published its final edition.

I don't know about the Rocky Mountain News, but the Seattle PI was nothing more than another Leftist rag, spewing biased opinion as "news". Choke on it and piss off, you Leftist rag. I'll be drinking to your demise, and hoping that your online news goes under as well.

I know that there will be people bemoaning the loss of another newspaper, and talking about how this somehow hurts the country, but we didn't lose a "newspaper". We lost another arm of the Democrat American Communist Party propaganda machine. They didn't print the news, unless it was in the Sports section. They printed a load of biased crap, and I wouldn't use the PI to wrap up fish or line a birdcage. If I wanted Communist propaganda when I lived in Seattle, I'd just grab a copy of the Seattle Weekly. It was free, and the bias was the same.

When the New York Times goes under, I'm throwing a party. You'll all be invited.

If you deal with moonbats re: AIG bonuses

I've had a few dealings with the random and various civilians I deal with on a day to day basis. The subject of AIG bonuses came up, with the predictable "I think Schumer is right! Let's tax it all!" Blah blah blah blah blah.

It might be nice to remind those moonbats that the AIG bonuses were written into law by none other than Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut, and voted for by Chucky Schumer, and signed into law by Teleprompter Jesus himself. So all the Democrat American Communist Party members who are throwing a shrieking, poo-flinging temper-tantrum about the AIG bonuses are the very people who made them happen.

So that could mean a couple of different things, all of which could be true, possibly at the same time -

1) That congresscritters don't understand what they write when they craft a bill or an amendment.
2) That congresscritters don't understand what they're voting for.
3) That congresscritters don't read what they're voting for.
4) That Teleprompter Jesus doesn't read or understand what he signs into law.
5) That all the politicians know exactly what they're doing, and this is nothing more than political Kabuki Theater put on by a bunch of flaming hypocrites who need to be tarred and feathered.

Any of it is plausible.

Obama's ACORN Brownshirts' Ritch-hunt!

It is important to remember the (D)emocrats are fanning the flames of outrage over payouts to AIG executives that the (D)emocrats approved, after accepting massive campaign contributions. To pass an unConstitutional and retroactive Bill of Attainder to sieze those bonus payouts, wages earned I remind you, is as offensive to liberty as it is hypocritical.

Is it flirting with 'trutherism' to suggest that the very tactic, of manufactured crisis, that the Left so frequently projects upon it's target might be a well documented method?

“U.S. Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad said on Thursday he expects federal deficit spending will be about $1.6 trillion greater over the next ten years than President Barack Obama’s budget plan forecasts. Obama submitted his budget outline to Congress last month which forecast almost $7 trillion in deficits through 2019, however a worsening economic picture is expected to make the budget outlook darker. Conrad told reporters that the additional $1.6 trillion over the next decade was based on projections of the Democratic majority’s budget committee staff.” -- Kent Conrad(D)

...
But with their recent demonstrations against the very politicians, banks and insurers who caved to ACORN’s demands and gave and insured these loans to the poor, we are seeing the ‘Cloward-Piven Strategy’ coming full circle.

One is literally damned if you do and damned if you don’t do exactly what ACORN and demands.
...
Are we not witnessing the culmination and ultimate triumph of the ‘Cloward-Piven Strategy’?
Discover The Networks : ASSOCIATION OF COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS FOR REFORM NOW (ACORN)
Largest radical group in America, with more than 400,000 dues-paying member families, and more than 1,200 chapters in 110 U.S. cities

Implicated in numerous reports of fraudulent voter registration, vote-rigging, voter intimidation, and vote-for-pay scams during the 2004 election

Maintains close ties to organized labor
The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) is a grassroots political organization that grew out of George Wiley's National Welfare Rights Organization (NWRO), whose members in the late 1960s and early 70s invaded welfare offices across the U.S. -- often violently -- bullying social workers and loudly demanding every penny to which the law "entitled" them. In the late 1960s, ACORN co-founder Wade Rathke was a NWRO organizer and a protegé of Wiley. Rathke also organized draft resistance for the militant group Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) during the same period.
Yes... that would be the SDS that became Weathermen in which Barack Hussein Obama's good friend Bill Ayers started a bombing campaign.
In 1970 Rathke -- along with the aforementioned Wiley (best known for his effective use of the so-called "Cloward-Piven strategy," which called for swamping the welfare rolls with new applicants and thereby creating an economic crisis) and Gary Delgado (a lead organizer for Wiley's NWRO) -- formed a new entity called Arkansas Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). The group's name was later changed to Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, but the acronym ACORN remained. Instead of focusing only on welfare recipients, ACORN's mandate included all issues touching low-income and working-class people.

Rathke and his ACORN co-founders enlisted civil rights workers and trained them in a program (at Syracuse University) patterned after Saul Alinsky's activist tactics.
Sweetness & Light : The Many Tentacles Of ‘Cloward-Piven’
...the left is seeking to blame the current economic crisis on a conspiracy that is an inversion of the actual facts.
...
Notice how the people who espouse the ‘Cloward-Piven Strategy’ run like a scarlet thread through the organizations that figure so largely in the housing and banking – and voting – scandals.

Note too how President Obama, a confessed Alinsky acolyte, worked for the Cloward-Piven inspired “Project Vote” project. In fact, it is one of his proudest achievements...
...
Mr. Obama continued to work for “Project Vote/ACORN” and the Cloward-Piven people for many years later – as an instructor in their “power training” classes– despite his many claims to the contrary.
Discover The Networks : CLOWARD-PIVEN STRATEGY
First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, the "Cloward-Piven Strategy" seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.
...
Cloward-Piven's early promoters cited radical organizer Saul Alinsky as their inspiration.
...
..."cadres of aggressive organizers" to use "demonstrations to create a climate of militancy."
...
This was an example of what are commonly called Trojan Horse movements -- mass movements whose outward purpose seems to be providing material help to the downtrodden, but whose real objective is to draft poor people into service as revolutionary foot soldiers; to mobilize poor people en masse to overwhelm government agencies with a flood of demands beyond the capacity of those agencies to meet. The flood of demands was calculated to break the budget, jam the bureaucratic gears into gridlock, and bring the system crashing down. Fear, turmoil, violence and economic collapse would accompany such a breakdown -- providing perfect conditions for fostering radical change.
...
The Cloward-Piven strategy depended on surprise. Once society recovered from the initial shock, the backlash began. New York's welfare crisis horrified America, giving rise to a reform movement which culminated in "the end of welfare as we know it" -- the 1996 Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act, which imposed time limits on federal welfare, along with strict eligibility and work requirements. Both Cloward and Piven attended the White House signing of the bill as guests of President Clinton.
...
Cloward and Piven never again revealed their intentions as candidly as they had in their 1966 article. Even so, their activism in subsequent years continued to rely on the tactic of overloading the system. When the public caught on to their welfare scheme, Cloward and Piven simply moved on, applying pressure to other sectors of the bureaucracy, wherever they detected weakness.
...
Project Vote is an ACORN front group, launched by former NWRO organizer and ACORN co-founder Zach Polett. Human SERVE was founded by Richard A. Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, along with a former NWRO organizer named Hulbert James.
...
All three of these organizations -- ACORN, Project Vote and Human SERVE -- set to work lobbying energetically for the so-called Motor-Voter law, which Bill Clinton ultimately signed in 1993. The Motor-Voter bill is largely responsible for swamping the voter rolls with "dead wood" -- invalid registrations signed in the name of deceased, ineligible or non-existent people -- thus opening the door to the unprecedented levels of voter fraud and "voter disenfranchisement" claims that followed in subsequent elections.

The new "voting rights" coalition combines mass voter registration drives -- typically featuring high levels of fraud -- with systematic intimidation of election officials in the form of frivolous lawsuits, unfounded charges of "racism" and "disenfranchisement," and "direct action" (street protests, violent or otherwise). Just as they swamped America's welfare offices in the 1960s, Cloward-Piven devotees now seek to overwhelm the nation's understaffed and poorly policed electoral system. Their tactics set the stage for the Florida recount crisis of 2000, and have introduced a level of fear, tension and foreboding to U.S. elections heretofore encountered mainly in Third World countries.

Both the Living Wage and Voting Rights movements depend heavily on financial support from George Soros's Open Society Institute and his "Shadow Party," through whose support the Cloward-Piven strategy continues to provide a blueprint for some of the Left's most ambitious campaigns.

Well, for one thing this interview provides the rest of us a chilling glimpse into the minds of the ultra fringe left, who like it or not, now control more and more of our government and its policies.
...
The ‘Cloward–Piven Strategy’ is a movement we have referenced several times before over the years on this site, especially with regard to ACORN, Project Vote and the National Welfare Rights Organization.
It's all part of the pogram, or did you forget about the new "Obama Youth" : House adopts plan for 'volunteer' corps
Also requires new evaluation of 'mandatory' service for all.
...
The legislation also refers to "uniforms" that would be worn by the "volunteers" and the "need" for a "public service academy, a 4-year institution" to "focus on training" future "public sector leaders." The training, apparently, would occur at "campuses."

The vote yesterday came on H.R. 1388, which reauthorizes through 2014 the National and Community Service Act of 1990 and the Domestic Volunteer Service Act of 1973, acts that originally, among other programs, funded the AmeriCorps and the National Senior Service Corps.

It not only reauthorizes the programs, but also includes "new programs and studies" and is expected to be funded with an allocation of $6 billion over the next five years, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
...
The video of his statements is posted here...
...
...when a copy of the speech provided online apparently was edited to exclude Obama's specific references to the new force.
So is it 'trutherism' to document how George Soros money, Bill Ayers terrorist legacy, ACORN's Brownshirt tactics, Cloward-Piven strategy and Saul Alinsky's tactics are all behind... Barack Hussein Obama?

So, yeah, anyways, all you moonbats out there who wanted "peace", tell me....

Earlier this month, the Chinese started harassing an unarmed Navy exploration vessel, requiring the US to send armed escorts into the international waters of the South China Sea. North Korea is about to launch an ICBM with a reported range that easily includes American territory. Moscow has flipped Kyrgyzstan and put our supply routes into Afghanistan in jeopardy.


Just how is that whole electing an complete and total amateur, a spineless pissant, a weak jellyfish, a world novice, an unprepared do-nothing junior senator with nothing but glib phrases... how's that working out for ya, anyways?

Biden was right; they’re testing the mettle of the new President. Evidentally, they’re finding that he doesn’t have much, and they’re becoming more and more arrogant about their provocations.
I'd really love to know how prostrating ourselves in front of the world's tyrants is supposed to make us safer. Because that's what this administration's defense policy seems to be. "Oh, but I'm not George Bush! I'm a nice guy! I have Hope and Change on my side! Let's be friends!" Yeah, real coherent defense policy. We already knew why the terrorist groups around the world wanted Obama to win. Now we see why China and Russia wanted him to win as well. Because now they can do anything they want around the world, and that jug-eared dipshit won't so a single thing to stop them.

Hope and Change! Hope and Change! Hope and Change! Yeah, a great slogan for brain-dead fucktards who are incapable of understanding more than one sentance at a time, but not a real good defense policy.

Another Myth, destroyed

What myth, you ask? Why, that would be the myth of Jewish superiority and world domination.

Consider this - for years, I've had lunatics try to tell me that Jews controlled the world, or that I was nothing more than a Jewish neo-con puppet, or some such tripe like that. I honestly just brushed it off, because that's all you can do with something that stupid.

My response is, if Jews are so smart that they control the world, why does the Jewish vote always go to the Democrat American Communist Party?

Consider this, if you will. Link found at KisP.

First, last Saturday, The Boston Globe reported that Paul Volcker, who serves as President Barack Obama's economic recovery adviser, and several former senior US officials have written a letter to Obama calling for the US to recognize Hamas. As one of the signatories, Brent Scowcroft, who was national security adviser under president George H.W. Bush, explained, "I see no reason not to talk to Hamas."

Scowcroft further argued, "The main gist is that you need to push hard on the Palestinian peace process. Don't move it to end of your agenda and say you have too much to do. And the US needs to have a position, not just hold their coats while they sit down."

Congressional sources claim that Obama has selected Scowcroft to replace Chas Freeman as chairman of the National Intelligence Council.

The second reason that it is becoming apparent that the Obama administration is poised to recognize Hamas is that on Thursday, Egyptian intelligence chief Omar Suleiman held talks at the State Department with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and enjoined the administration to support the reestablishment of a Hamas-Fatah unity government to control and reunify the Palestinian Authority in Gaza and Judea and Samaria.

This is significant because it is becoming apparent that top administration officials only meet with people who tell them what they want to hear.

Case in point is IDF Chief of General Staff Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi's trip this week to Washington. Ashkenazi went to the US to brief top administration officials on Iran's progress toward a nuclear bomb. Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Ashkenazi's counterpart, Adm. Michael Mullen, both managed to be out of town. Defense Ministry sources say that Ashkenazi only met with National Security Adviser James Jones, who reportedly wished to speak exclusively about the Palestinians, and with Clinton's Iran adviser Dennis Ross, whose role in shaping US policy toward Iran remains unclear.

Now, by all means go read the whole thing, and gaze in horror as the USA gives the cold shoulder to our one true ally in the Middle East. And then prepare to vomit as you see that this administration is greasing up it's bunghole in preparation of bending over and getting assfucked by the sub-human terrorist swine of Hamas.

The Jewish vote? They voted for this.

For some reason, when you break down votes by ethnic group, the Jewish vote always goes to the Democrat American Communist Party. You would think that a group of people who secretly ruled the world would at least want to be Republicans, so that they could keep more of their filthy lucre. But no, all those successful people have voted to have their money taxed away! You would think that a Jewish Cabal tugging on the puppet strings in Washington D.C. would vote for the politician most likely to flatten the various terrorist groups that constantly threaten Israel, but instead that group voted for the politician and the party who have a long, sordid history of capitulating to terrorist groups at each and every opportunity. Brent Scowecroft wants the USA to "push hard on the peace process" with Hamas?

"Push hard on the peace process" Brent? Do you even understand what you just said? How did someone this damned ignorant get to a position of power in the government?

Yeah, gee, let's "push hard on the peace process" with a group that refuses to recognize Israel's right to exist. Let's "push hard on the peace" process with a group who's founding charter calls for genocide and the destruction of an entire country, that country being Israel. Tell me Brent, just how do you "push hard on the peace process" with a group that has rejected peace since it's very inception?

The Jewish vote went to the political party that would let them all die, if push came to shove. The Jewish vote went to the political party that wants to divest itself of that pesky little Israel problem. The Jewish vote went to the political party that surrenders to, and thus encourages and grows, various terrorist groups around the world, all of whom want to kill the Jews and destroy Israel.

And yet I'm supposed to believe that there's this Jewish cabal running the world? Please. I think that myth is safely destroyed.
