"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

Obama was silent for 9 days after the chaos in Libya started! 9 days!!! Why?? And why when he gave that speech finally, NOT ONCE did he even mention Gaddafi's name! Why??
Let us not forget that Obama's pastor, Jeremiah Wright (of "Not God Bless America, God Damn America" fame) and the equal anti-Christian, anti-Jewish, and anti-American wacko Louis Farrakhan make a pilgrimage to Libya in 1984 to meet with and break bread with Gaddafi and praised his regime and rule! But don't worry, Obama never heard of any Wright's anti-American rhetiric in those 20 years he attended!
The White House gave the lame excuse that Obama's schedule didn't allow him to make a statement until now!! Bull!! He couldn't stop and make a brief 5 minute statement strongly condemning Libya but found time to coach his daughter's basketball game?
Just like he did to the citizens of Iran, he remained silent while these people were oppressed and brutalized by the government instead of coming out and strongly supporting the people trying to topple these repressive regimes and condemning violence against their own people!
We can only hope Gaddafi meets his end soon before more people die in Libya. Of course Obama is cheering for Gaddafi for other reasons as well. Gaddafi is threatening to blow up the oil pipelines if his power is reduced and rule is taken. Obama of course would love that to happen as it would cause oil prices to dramatically rise enabling him to institute his radical leftist green agenda here all that much faster. And as our fragile economy crashes on $100+ oil, the Cloward and Piven strategy is hastened in as our country implodes on itself.
Evil men in evil times. We, as Patriots, must stand together now more than ever or we will surely regret it!

Barack Hussein Obama’s pathetic and weak foreign policy and absolutely naïve and sometimes anti-American view of evil in the world has now cost the lives of 4 Americans hijacked by pirates off the coast of Somalia.
This disgrace of a President actually gave power and credence to these criminals by attempting to negotiate with them rather than taking a hard line stance against them!
This event is symptomatic of a President that portrays and projects weakness when dealing with our enemies. These people see the weakness and will take advantage whenever they can. The only thing scum like them understand is brute strength and what Obama should have immediately done after hearing of the hijacking is to make a formal press statement demanding their safe release in a defined amount of time or they would face dire consequences. We could have had stealth Navy seals and secret ops men use the dark of night to sneak up and surprise these monster and take them out right there and then.
But no, we have an anti-American man-child in control who despises his own citizens enough to have them die at the hands of terrorists knowing he could have done something about it! A tragedy and disgrace that he should stand trial for!
This symptom of weakness is manifesting itself around the world in hostile countries brashly and boldly thumbing thewir noses at us and all Obama can do is practice his community organizing skills in this country against states and citizens trying to reign in their out of control debt and union benefits while he shakes down rich executives in the Silicon Valley to help him raise $1 BILLION for his reelection. He is the most dangerous man to hold this office I dare say in our history. The world crumbles around him as he points the fingers of blame and foments the very conditions and hatred that threaten our country and the security of the world in general. A vile display if I have ever seen one!

Thousands of public unions employees and students--some as young as grade school-- gathered in true community organizer fashion protesting the new Governor's plan to close a $3 Billion shortfall in that state--caused mainly by liberal policies, giveaways, entitlements, and pay backs to union thugs. As I have said many times, big government liberalism in bed with the labor movement is never going to end well and you are seeing on full display!
This protest is being led by operatives from Obama's Organizing for America, so if anyone believes Obama is not 100% in support and following closely these events, they are clueless and misguided. Obama himself has come out and said this looks like "an assault on the unions". Gee,Mr. President, such divisive and harsh words from the great uniter you were supposed to be is soooo unlike you! He also said we shouldn't "vilify these employees". Really?? You mean the way you vilify Republicans, Tea Partiers, gun owners, Cambridge Massachusetts police officers, Arizona Governor on immigration, "if they bring a knife we'll bring a gun" Obama, and anyone else who you disagree with?? Shut up, Mr. President! You have ZERO credibility on this issue--or anything else!
These people are simply being asked to contribute more to their government pensions and healthcare--only slightly more and still FAR less than what private sector employees are asked to contribute for less benefits. Yet, they cry foul and walk out of their TAX PAYER paid for jobs and march like good little Communists to protest the dire of need of scaling back unsustainable spending and debt.
But remember, they do not care, but because what is theirs is theirs and what is yours is theirs! And make no mistake, this march and protest is not simply a random act of civil disobedience! It is being run and organized by big labor which is 100% Marxist and Communist in nature and is VERY dangerous to our nation. This kind of action will spread throughout other parts of the country and states where there is equal budgetary disasters and they will likely turn violent in instances as the two sides clash politically and literally on these issues. Unfortunately, this was predicted after witnessing similar events in European countries recently. The same type of government excess was practiced there--only on an even larger scale--and when the government tried to reign in its excess, these Marxists use it as their chance to breakdown government at any level.
And what about the civil discourse that the left tell us we all need to practice?? These low lifes are now showing up at the private homes of Wisconsin law makers in a veiled threat. None of this is good and I fear may lead to violence and the crossing of lines that shoul never be crossed!
Have you seen and read any of the vile, disgusting signs at these protests?Has the media called them out on any of it? Nah!! But watch out, cuz those Tea Partiers are nasty people though!! These protesters have signs comparing the governor to Egyptian President Mubarak, have Hitler mustaches painted on him and cross hairs on this head--all the nasty things they have accused the right for falsely I might add--they are doing themselves right out in the open and no one seems to have a problem with that!! What is wrong with this country!!! But there is one common point between Wisconsin and Egypt, that is thugs and radicals trying to take over and topple. And like the Middle East, it will spread and fester into other states as the thugs get more bold and desperate! But that is another post for tomorrow! Now just wait until simple signs and protests to not work for them and you may see the violence like you ARE seeing in the Middle East!
If the Governor REALLY wanted to show these low lifes who is in charge, he would show them the door! Just as Reagan did in the 1980's with the Air Traffic Control union that was striking, he gave them a deadline to go back to work or be fired. They didn't go back and he dumped them! Do it, Governor!! Get rid of these leaches and their unions while you still have a state!
And the best part of all, cowardly little cry baby, sneaky, gutless Democrat State Senators are hiding out like little children in the State of Illinois in an attempt to postpone or halt a vote on the deficit reduction bill in the Wisconsin State House!! What a disgrace, again TAX PAYER supported employees--like the union employees protesting-- walking out on their jobs and responsibilities they are being paid for! If you and I did this we would be fired immediately and rightfully. The Governor should take every opportunity to embarrass these people and get them back to live up to their jobs they are being paid for!
I hope the GOOD people of this country are taking note of the disgusting tactics of the left. They will get more and more desperate and more violent. Like a cornered and scared animal they will attack and lash out against the tax payers who have been forced to feed their bad habits and never ending appetite for other peoples' money all these years! The party is over and they are like that last uninvited party guest that just won't leave--you have to show them the door with some force! But beware, they will not go quietly and expect things to get much worse before they get better. Stand together for our Republic or we are all doomed to go down with the financial Titanic together...
Although I do think there are a lot people we see on camera that truly do want more liberty and freedom, I also believe that their movement is hijacked by the radical extremists such as the Muslim Brotherhood. This is an extremely well organized and well funded radical, anti-Western group that's stated goal is to institute Shariah law wherever they can and, like all these groups, the destruction of Israel.You need only look at the violence being perpetrated against westerners--particularly journalists-- in these countries. It is also known now that there is Socialist and Communist influence helping to stir and agitate this violence as well. Although under ordinary circumstances, these different groups would not stand side by side with each other, but they share a common cause in taking down governments, spurring violence, and replacing them with hard line extremists.
Meanwhile we have the clueless Hillary Clinton just a few weeks ago saying that Bahrain was a shining example of a pro-western Muslim country and was stable. No sooner does she say that and Bahrain is falling as Egypt has. And this is even more troubling since Bahrain is home the "Fifth Fleet", a major US military hub to the Middle East. IF Bahrain goes down we lose a strategic security point in the Middle East.
And like dominoes falling, other countries there may face the same fate. Countries such as Libya, Tunisia, Jordan, and others are also teetering. And what of Saudi Arabia?? Do you not think that country is in the sights of the radicals as well?? A huge oil producing country and strategic placement. IF there is any threat to them, you will see $5 gasoline or more overnight!
Iran is also helping to back these groups as well. Let us not forget that the wackos running Iran right now are believers in the "Twelfth Imam", a ancient Koran biblical legend right out of the Bible's Book of Revelations. Radicals believe this person/figure will come back to Earth when there is enough violence, destruction, and mayhem. So their goal and intention is to do whatever they can to bring this on. The more death and destruction they can cause, the better.
But yet we have our own radical, Marxist man-child President praising and brushing off these events as nothing more than freedom fighters in these countries. His whimsical and apparent uncaring views on these events is dangerous and foolish and truly makes many wonder what is in his head and heart. Is he that dumb or does he actually support these radical elements?? After all, we have seen him actively supporting the union thug protests here and have left wing media comparing the Egyptian events to those going on in Wisconsin.
And finally, although few even on the right want to talk about, we have massive violence and killing going on right on our own southern border! Massive Communist backed protests are going on in Mexico city. Just this week 2 more border agents were killed and we have almost daily incursions across our border by the Mexican army and drug cartels. One estimate puts our actual border security at only 20%!!. Yet, again our President's only goal is battle governors who dare to secure their own borders because the Feds refuse to, and strip money and programs designed to help increase border security even though radical elements are also funding and backing these events as well.
What to do?? Very simple--bring home our troops from old, tired worn outposts around the world. Send them to our border and shut it down! Then immediately lift the oil drilling bans forced by radicals in this country. Drill everywhere on shore and off! Go for the oil shale, find those huge natural gas deposits. When we do this, we will no longer have to look in fear at the turmoil in the Middle East. The President's number one job is to secure the United States and keep our interests and needs FIRST! But of course that is EXACTLY why this President will never do it!
