Thomas Jefferson

"We must make our choice between economy and liberty or confusion and servitude...If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and comforts, in our labor and in our amusements...if we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy."--Thomas Jefferson

"America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. "
--John Quincy Adams
US diplomat & politician (1767 - 1848)

“Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation”
-James Madison at the Virginia Ratification Debates
"With respect to the words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."

- James Madison's Letter to James Robertson, April 20, 1831

Bring on the Distraction!

Well the Obama family is vacationing on their $50,000 a week Martha’s Vineyard getaway in one of the most liberal elitist enclaves in the country. So much for the President who is for the people—while he lectures businesses and individuals that we can’t keep living or practicing business like we always have because we need to sacrifice more for the common good. Typical bourgeois liberal. Obama continues to shows up who he is by choosing to vacation in such a place.

And while the health care “debate” rages on in the country, Obama has pulled a classical Clintonian distraction tactic by having the Justice Department announce that they are moving forward with an special prosecutor to look into CIA interrogations of terrorist suspects after the 9/11 attacks. This is an obvious distraction to get health care off the front pages and is a clear reversal from what Obama and Eric Holder (the AG), not to mention it totally sells our intelligence people down the river and will ultimately make us less safe from another terrorist attack. But should we be surprised? Eric Holder is after all the Clinton administration hold over who got the pardon for the FALN terrorists who plotted to kill Americans and were on tape making bombs-120 of which they managed to set off in the United States and has said our justice system has always been “to hard on criminals”.

Of course, this is payback to the extreme left wing lawyers (see ACLU) and groups in this country that have total disdain for our freedom and loathe our military and would rather side with the terrorists than protect our homeland.

The administration will be handing over lists of the terrorists we are holding over to the International Red Cross. While the American Red Cross is an excellent organization, the International Red Cross is a left wing group and they will use these names as propaganda against the United States and provide fresh incentive to terrorist groups to mobilize against us and to try to find and free their fellow comrades.

Shredding the confidence of CIA personnel is extremely dangerous to our national security and just wrong. It will cause many good people to quit the agency and many more that maybe would have considered this profession to serve their country will choose another career—all because they do not want to risk being arrested and prosecuted and placing themselves and their family in jeopardy while defending their country. Morale will plummet in the agency! Are you willing to accept reduced security for a political witch hunt of the left?

Again, we shouldn’t be surprised. This is one of the few departments Obama is actually willing to make cuts in the budget—like he has with the whole military. Investigations have revealed that these cuts have caused corner-cutting in training CIA field personnel and again will lead to security short comings as a result.

The Inspector General is also about to report more criticisms of Bush administration tactics that the same Justice Department ALREADY HAD PREVIOUSLY APPROVED! More politics, less security….

This also goes hand in hand with Obama and Holder’s other left wing payback and promise- moving forward on their desire to close the Guantanomo Bay detention facility, where some of the most hardened terrorists are being held, and bringing them to the US and housed in a neighborhood near you—looks like Michigan at this point!

This administration’s approach to terrorism is the same as the Clinton’s—treat it as a law enforcement issue instead of what it should be: a military/national security issue. They are returning us to a pre-9/11 mentality in these approaches. I just pray that our country does not pay back their left wing supporters with the lives of innocent Americans.
