There isn’t much one can say anymore…either that, or there is SO very much to say that one could write [and read] 24/7 and never get caught up.  But today, it is necessary to take notice of three very important developments.

Case #1:  Gen. Stanley McChrystal  has been called to the White House Carpet to have his ears boxed, figuratively speaking, for having had the temerity, integrity and honor to speak his truth.  It has been well known that Gen. Petraeus emerged from a January  2009 meeting with the DOLTUS, obviously angry.  Now General McChrystal has spoken to Rolling Stone, among others, and the DOLTUS, insane, inane narcissist the he is, is wild with rage.  He will probably fire him, just as he did his predecessor, for refusing to lie, cover up and kowtow to this feckless, unclothed, self proclaimed emperor of evil.

Case #2:  Please–if you read nothing else today, hop on over to Logistics Monster and read up on things:

“the CRIME, INC. circle between George Soros, John Podesta (Center for American Progress), John’s brother, Tony who is the BP lobbyist in D.C., Obama, Petrobras (Brazilian Oil Company), and the $2 Billion dollar loan to them last year to assist them in deepwater drilling. Obama has turned off the spigot in the gulf, yet Petrobras is set to drill even deeper than Deepwater Horizon.”

Case #3:

Anniversary of the U.S. Constitution
222 years ago this day
Ratified June 21, 1788
http://www.archives.gov/
The United States wasn’t established overnight. We had a long journey to country hood.
In fact, the U.S. Constitution wasn’t even written until 1787,
years after the American Revolution ended.

In furtherance of the fight for the survival and safety of  our Constitutional Republic, thanks to the brilliance, energy, patriotism and committment of so many, the research is moving along, folks!  Here’s a list of excellent resource sites with which to stay current on all developments!

To expand a bit on the Hedges book about which I wrote earlier this week, I’d like to cross post some thoughts written by one of our champions of courage–Vietnam vet, Patriot and All American thinker and writer, Dean [BrownWaterNavy] reminds us from whence our Constitution came, and notes some of the material from which our Framers gleaned their thoughts.

A heartfelt thanks to you, Dean, and to all those who provoke intelligent discourse based on fact [Bones] these days, as it bestows the rare beauty of wisdom, critical thinking and careful research–something, apparently, our institutions of higher learning are unable to impart nowadays.

On the premise that: John Locke is the intellectual father of our country. . .

While a number of thinkers, stretching from Plato and Aristotle to Blackstone and including Thomas Aquinas, Grotius, Pufendorf, Rousseau, Montesquieu, Hume, and Hobbes made important contributions, this political and social philosopher of 17th century England influenced the author of the Declaration of Independence and the Framers of the Constitution more than any.

Every basic structure in American governance flows from Locke, especially protection for private property.

To understand why Locke was considered the intellectual father of our country it is essential to study those philosophers that influenced his thinking. Locke drew on a vast array of philosophers. Some well known while others somewhat obscure to the casual observer.

While this study lightly touches on the many elements influencing Locke’s ideas it will give the reader a basic understanding of the thinking of that era and why it was so critically important as to how and why we became the United States of America.

The Founders were influenced by a vast wealth of intellectuals and philosophers of the the time that ultimately produced the inspired documents that are so vital to our heritage as Americans.
This rich heritage is drawn from the greatest thinkers in history. The Founders left no stone unturned in the formation of what is now arguably the greatest nation on God’s green earth.

I agree with Bones that the Constitution is no longer applicable and in fact hasn’t been for decades. We have descended into a society bent on it’s own self destruction through corrupt politicians and an ever increasing lack of moral values.

The question remains can we take our country back…can we restore the Republic and the Constitution? imho I would have to state unequivocally no. However, we can rebuild it and through a careful, methodical process perhaps make this nation even better than our Founders envisioned.
But as Bones has stated on many occasions, we must know our past to know where we are going. That is the truth as I see it.
Therefore I submit that each of us, as American patriots, should make it a priority to study our nations past, the men who so diligently argued moral ethics and gave us this beautiful wonder called America, and the traditions that make us what we can be again….free men and women.

We owe it to ourselves; more importantly we are duty bound to our posterity to pass wisdom along.

Samuel von Pufendorf (1632 – 1694)

1.) “It must absolutely be maintained that the obligation of the natural law is from God himself, the creator and supreme governor of the human race, who by virtue of his sovereignty over men, his creatures, has bound them to its observance.  He formed the nature of things and of man in such a way that the latter cannot be preserved without a sociable life.”

Pufendorf’s primary contribution was his emphasis on the “sociality” of humankind as the foundation of the natural law. “Any man must, inasmuch as he can,” he wrote, “cultivate and maintain toward others a peaceable sociality that is consistent with the native character and end of humankind in general.” Sociability, however, is threatened by the fallen character of the human condition. “What would men’s life have been like without a law to compose them?” he asks: “a pack of wolves, lions, or dogs fighting to the finish.” Hence God, the divine lawgiver, established laws to order human social life. As Pufendorf writes, “Just as the life of men would without society be similar to the life of the beasts, so the law of nature is chiefly based on the principle that social life is to be preserved among men.”
**************************************************************************************************************************************
2.) Pufendorf’s earliest work, the Elementorum jurisprudentiae universalis libri II (Two Books on the Elements of Universal Jurisprudence) marks the starting-point of his career as a lecturer on natural law and of the emergence of the modern natural-law tradition in Germany.

Though overshadowed by Pufendorf’s larger work on natural law, De jure naturae et gentium, and its textbook abridgement, De officio hominis et civis juxta legem naturalem, the Elements already contains essential features of his mature theory.

Pufendorf’s aim as articulated in the preface to the Elements was to develop natural law as a demonstrative science modeled after the mathematical disciplines. He saw the traditional denial that a moral science was possible as a misunderstanding of the Aristotelian doctrine of demonstration. In a scientific proposition, necessity does not refer to the subject of the proposition as distinguished from the predicate, but to the necessary connection of subject and predicate that can be demonstrated by some undoubted axiom or principle

Among the principles of the natural law system only two are considered as axioms, whose “certainty and necessity, flows from reason itself, without the perception of particulars,” namely, the axiom of imputability of voluntary actions “that may be directed according to a moral norm, and the axiom of the obligatory nature of norms in proportion to the authority of the person prescribing them. While imputability and the prescriptive nature of norms express formal requirements of morality, the material content of natural law is exclusively grounded in the other kind of principles—the Observations—whose certainty “is perceived from the comparison and perception of particulars uniformly corresponding to one another. They concern the human intellect and its faculty of (moral) judgment (Observ. 1), the liberty of the will (Observ. 2), the natural sociability of man (Observ. 3), the harmony of self-preservation and society (Observ. 4), and the necessity to establish human sovereignty in particular societies (Observ. 5). Here Pufendorf mainly draws on the natural law writings of Hugo Grotius and Thomas Hobbes, whom he mentions in his preface. The basic anthropology contained in the observations emerges mainly from a critical discussion of their natural law doctrines, resulting in an effort to reconcile Hobbes’s egoism and concept of human society as an artifact with Grotius’s doctrine of social appetite conceived as the telos of a rational and social nature.

The baron de Montesquieu:

The baron de Montesquieu concerned himself entirely with political theory. His Spirit of the Laws  (1748) sought to explain how different groups of people end up with different and varying forms of government. He argued that climate, terrain, and agricultural conditions largely predetermined both human behavior and various forms of authority. However, Montesquieu also believed that there was a single, best form of government and that humans could overcome any and all geographical and climatic conditions. For Montesquieu, the best form of human government was embodied in the English constitution after the Glorious Revolution. In particular, the English constitution divided state powers into three independent branches of government: the executive, the legislative, and the judicial. Since no one person or group was in charge, the maximum amount of political and economic freedom was made available to the general population. He called this equal distribution of power “checks and balances,” and his theories of government would be the single most powerful influence upon the formation of American government at the end of the century.

(*)Montesquieu was one of the great political philosophers of the Enlightenment. Insatiably curious and mordantly funny, he constructed a naturalistic account of the various forms of government, and of the causes that made them what they were and that advanced or constrained their development. He used this account to explain how governments might be preserved from corruption. He saw despotism, in particular, as a standing danger for any government not already despotic, and argued that it could best be prevented by a system in which different bodies exercised legislative, executive, and judicial power, and in which all those bodies were bound by the rule of law. This theory of the separation of powers had an enormous impact on liberal political theory, and on the framers of the constitution of the United States of America.

One small footnote of history came from my own family heritage. Yes despite my current last name from a legal adoption in my youth, I have a Scottish heritage. Born Dean Maxwell in 1947, my family, by way of Eustace Maxwell, is directly associated with The Declaration of Arbroath ( sometimes called the [Scottish] Declaration of Independence )which came about in a response to the excommunication of Scotland by Pope John XXII.

You’ll be asking yourself of what significance does this have to the discussion. Read on.

This appeal to Pope John XXII for the same rights and recognition as England was a precursor to a modern form of republican government that finds its power in the people!

Read more at Suite101: The Declaration of Arbroath 1320: Scotland’s Declaration of Independence was a New Model for Freedom.

The Declaration of Arbroath is significant in that it later became a model for the American Declaration of Independence.
For as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom — for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.
–From The Declaration of Arbroath 1320.

Scotland’s national independence was affirmed through this document in a manner in which no battle could succeed. The national independence of Scotland was justified through truth that is beyond race and nation. Mankind has a right to freedom which is given by God and to defend it with his life. The qualifications which are placed upon the baron are unimportant; truth once declared cannot be abrogated and stifled. God given liberty secured to each man will grow.

Robert the Bruce was a heather king to several of the Scots which explains the obligation placed upon a feudal monarch by his subjects. Celtic tradition was invoked in the memory of the Seven Earls, the Seven Sons of Cruithne the Pict for the roots of kingship was Celtic. It is believed that Cruithne the Pict rested the ancient right of tanistry. Tanistry is the elevation of a king by the selection of his subjects. Hence, the relationship of king and his people influenced the history of the Scots hereafter. This tradition would reach its climax in the Reformation of Western Europe beginning with Wycliffe, Tyndale, Luther, Calvin, and Knox. After the Reformation, a people’s loyalty to God was declared to be superior over the rule of earthly sovereigns.

Well, things are busy and chilly here in the Northeast–so much for global warming, eh?  27 degrees in some places last night, with people running around in their Uggs putting pots, pails and garbage bags over their carefully tended plants, put in early as a result of an early spring.

But I digress.  I have been exceedingly lax in posting of late and for that I apologize.  There is so much to post about but I am tending to the business of life and trying to get some things taken care of before any more time goes by, for we know not what the future holds in these United States.  With virtually no border security, and those attempting to guard their borders being persecuted for doing so, the world economy collapsing, gold rising to $1,222., our Gulf becoming a giant, leaking oil tanker and an illegal alien in the WH–Oh, DUH!  So THAT’S why this regime is so offended by Arizona’s attempts to enforce the laws against illegal entry…haha, one of those little AHA! moments here…

Well, I AM rambling a bit …just so much to contend with here in these 21st Century United States…it’s definitely not a ride for the faint of heart, soul and mind!

However, the title of this post leads me to simply paste when I found when I went to my trusty Scroogle site this morning.  Google has HAD IT with people trying to do research without being tracked, so they have prevented sites like Scroogle from helping us to protect our right to privacy.  Thought you’d like to know…maybe some of you more brilliant techies out there can work on finding alternatives, thereby helping the rest of us to maintain our privacy and keep Google’s nasty little record keepers from crawling too far up our backs.

We regret to announce that our Google scraper may have to be permanently retired, thanks to a change at Google. It depends on whether Google is willing to restore the simple interface that we’ve been scraping since Scroogle started five years ago. Actually, we’ve been using that interface for scraping since Google-Watch.org began in 2002.

This interface (here’s a sample from years ago) was remarkably stable all that time. During those eight years there were only about five changes that required some programming adjustments. Also, this interface was available at every Google data center in exactly the same form, which allowed us to use 700 IP addresses for Google.

That interface was at www.google.com/ie but on May 10, 2010 they took it down and inserted a redirect to /toolbar/ie8/sidebar.html. It used to have a search box, and the results it showed were generic during that entire time. It didn’t show the snippets unless you moused-over the links it produced (they were there for our program, so that was okay), and it has never had any ads. Our impression was that these results were from Google’s basic algorithms, and that extra features and ads were added on top of these generic results. Three years ago Google launched “Universal Search,” which meant that they added results from other Google services on their pages. But this simple interface we were using was not affected at all.

Now that interface is gone. It is not possible to continue Scroogle unless we have a simple interface that is stable. Google’s main consumer-oriented interface that they want everyone to use is too complex, and changes too frequently, to make our scraping operation possible.

Over the next few days we will attempt to contact Google and determine whether the old interface is gone as a matter of policy at Google, or if they simply have it hidden somewhere and will tell us where it is so that we can continue to use it.

Thank you for your support during these past five years. Check back in a week or so; if we don’t hear from Google by next week, I think we can all assume that Google would rather have no Scroogle, and no privacy for searchers, at all.

— Daniel Brandt, Public Information Research, scroogle AT lavabit.com

R.I.P. Scroogle…until we can get this resolved.  And Thank you for all you do/did in furtherance of our Constitutionally recognized right to privacy from Google I mean Big Brother.

In the meantime…use www.ixquick.com and hope for the best.

If a still speaks a thousand words, how many does a video speak?  H/T to my man Bones for these utterly unbelievable, yet totally predictable responses from two of our illustrious [NOTTT!] Representatives: Hare & Pelosi.

BTW, NewsBusters’ piece about how Mainstream Media continues to rear its ugly head of collusion and complicity in this, the scamming of America:  How [in their desperation] the Media have Dismissed and Disparaged the Tea Party Movement.

Some nourishing food for thought, folks:  Again, h/t to Bones:

REASONABLE MEN

There is a concerted effort afoot on the part of big-state socialists to paint the Tea Party as a bunch of dangerous, hate-filled radicals with a bunch of crazy new ideas that go far beyond the pale of the traditional American political mainstream.

Let’s ask some reasonable men – because the Founding Fathers were surely the largest collection of reasonable men ever gathered in one place at one time in history – what they thought about the issues raised by the Tea Party movement.

For instance, what did they think of a powerful central government?

George Washington:

“Government is not reason; it is not eloquence. It is force. And force, like fire, is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”

To those who say, well, the Government has to force you to buy something you don’t want. It’s for the greater good! Here’s William Pitt, 1783:

“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves.”

Thomas Jefferson, the most intellectually brilliant man to ever hold the office of President – Barack Obama excepted, of course – had this to say in his First Inaugural, accepting the reins of that power:

“A wise and frugal government – (wise and frugal, my God how we have fallen) A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government…”

Did the greatest mind in American history have any other radical, dangerous thoughts on the encroachment of government and uncontrolled spending?

Jefferson, 1782:

“On every unauthoritative exercise of power by the legislature must the people rise in rebellion or their silence be construed into a surrender of that power to them? If so, how many rebellions should we have had already?”

Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Taylor, May 28, 1816:

“The principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.”

Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to Spencer Roane, March 9, 1821:

“The multiplication of public offices, increase of expense beyond income, growth and entailment of a public debt, are indications soliciting the employment of the pruning knife.”

Thomas Jefferson, 1824:

“I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious.”

1824! If Jefferson was outraged at the extent of the federal government in 1824, then that’s good enough for Bill Whittle in 2010. You see, unlike Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow and Ed Schultz and Keith Olbermann, I don’t think I’m smarter than Thomas Jefferson. But Ed and Rachel and Chris and Keith are here to tell you that protesting this government takeover of the auto industry, the financial industry, the insurance industry, the housing market and now the nation’s health care is a wild and radical idea!

I’ll tell you what else we Tea Party supporters believe in: we believe that the Constitution is Law. In the same way it’s the Ten Commandments and not the Ten Suggestions, we feel that the Constitution is law. When the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, was asked where she drew the Constitutional authority to force people to buy health insurance, she said this

And, famously, a few days ago, Democratic Congressmen Phil Hare, from Barack Obama’s own state of Illinois, had this to say about the source of his legal authority to make people do things they don’t want to do…

Now, if you took your responsibilities and your oaths seriously, I would be forced to at least respect the offices you hold, Madam Speaker, and Congressman Hare. But it’s obvious you don’t. So listen carefully, Nancy and Phil, to what better people then you can even imagine being had to say about the source of your authority:

“If it be asked, What is the most sacred duty and the greatest source of our security in a Republic? The answer would be, An inviolable respect for the Constitution and Laws — the first growing out of the last…. A sacred respect for the constitutional law is the vital principle, the sustaining energy of a free government. “

Alexander Hamilton, Aug 28, 1794

“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.”

Patrick Henry

“A free people [claim] their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.

Thomas Jefferson, 1774.

And finally, what about the dangerous, wild-eyed, hateful and threatening allusions to violence? What about that un-American, unheard of, unprecedented repudiation of the genteel nature of politics, as represented by the calm and rational rhetoric that came from the left during the Bush years? What did the founders have to say about defending freedom, by force if necessary?

One of the Framers of the Constitution, John Dickinson wrote:

We are reduced to the alternative of choosing an unconditional submission to the tyranny of irritated ministers (“irritated ministers” – I love that; that’s spot-on) or resistance by force. Honour, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us.”

Or this, from Patrick Henry , 1778:

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.”

Of all of the things I have seen since this movement began, nothing has tickled me the way blogger Kent McManigal has with his updated take on the famous Gadsen Flag, widely popular at the time of the Revolution and making a strong comeback in the Tea Party movement. Here’s Kent’s flag:

Time’s up, guys. I know you Irritated Ministers and the defenders of the rich and powerful in the news media loathe and despise the Tea Party because you fear it. And you are right to fear it! It’s coming! It’s coming to take the country back from you big-state, anti-freedom elitists. Time’s up.

Here are some final words to take us out.

Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 21, 1787:

“The natural cure for an ill-administration, in a popular or representative constitution, is a change of men.”

John Adams, 1765:

“Liberty must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure, and their blood.”

Benjamin Franklin, July 4, 1776:

“We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

And then there’s this:

“What country before ever existed a century and half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Thomas Jefferson in a letter to William Stephens Smith, 13 November 1787

And finally, from Samuel Adams – for all you big-state control freaks, Tea Party slanderers and the entire staff at MSNBC:

“If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”

Those are the wild-eyed radicals I stand with, and those are the ideals that I hold that are under assault. What about you?

For all who could bear to watch,  the death knell for our Constitution, our Country and our People tolled last night.  The cravenness of District of Corruption politicians and their shifting allegiances, back door deals and intimidation tactics were never more obvious.

We have been had, folks.  Despite 64%–that’s SIXTY-FOUR PERCENT–of the American peoples’ disapproval of Congress, they went ahead and did it anyway.

All we can hope is that they will not have been able to install the corruption clincher’s favorite tool, the electronic voting machines nationwide by November, for our only option now is to vote ALL of those craven, cowardly, despicable creatures OUT.

Remember this?  It’s what so many of our servicemen and women have sacrificed their lives for.  It is what they take an oath to preserve and protect.  And now, Congress has defiled it by passing this insane stealth “health” care bill, which includes FINES FOR THOSE AMERICANS WHO DO NOT WANT OR CANNOT AFFORD TO BUY HEALTH INSURANCE.

Join me tonight to continue the rant.  http://blogtalkradio.com/the-dame-truth

…The Tough Get Going.

These days it’s tough to keep up:  each day brings a new threat, a new disaster, a new outrage perpetrated by the government we once trusted to honor and protect our Constitution.    Devastation in Haiti, Perfidy in our Capitol, Corruption, Collusion, and Media lies inundate us constantly.  And yet…each day too, we find reasons to continue with hope and action.  In Massachusetts, Scott Brown is showing clear signs of being able to beat the DNC rubber stamp candidate Martha Coakley, going from a 9 point lead to dead heat to near underdog by 4 points in a number of days, and raising a million dollars a day,  fueled by the efforts of thousands of committed volunteers from neighboring states.  Governors’ races in New Jersey and Virginia overturned Democrats’ stranglehold on them recently, and the latest news is that pResident SoetorObama’s trip to Massachusetts has been cancelled for fear his history making low poll numbers will hurt his minions’ chances.  While this may not be enough for most of us, it is a clear indication that the delusional mandate he once claimed to enjoy has faded, if indeed it ever really existed, and droves of Obama voters have turned their backs in disgust at his pathetic performance.  A step at a time, things are beginning to turn around.  Yes, we have a great deal of work to do; we must maintain constant vigilance, keep learning and sharing the truth, networking and supporting one anothers’ work.  The 912 Project, Constitutional Emergency, FreedomForce.us, and Continental Congress 2009 are but a few of these dedicated, hard working entities who are helping to organize, share information and find ways to take our country back.  Visit the blogrolls– especially that of Logistics Monster, and PLEASE consider a donation and/or subscription to help her continue to keep us informed with the highest quality substantiated research on the web– on these and other pages to stay informed; listen to radio shows and do whatever you can to further the cause and stay the course for America.

Increasing numbers of Americans becoming active in the political system; having learned that they cannot trust the pablum pushed on them by corporate and government run media, they are coming to the realization that they need to question the Party Line, the Newspeak and the out and out Lies with which they are assaulted on a daily basis.  They are attending town meetings, talking to friends and neighbors, going to Tea Parties and getting motivated toward legal activism.

Today on C-Span I saw a Town Meeting from Oklahoma with Senator Tom Coburn.   Irrespective of what one thinks of him, he observed that currently, our Government bureaucracy, contrary to abiding by the “Innocent Until Proven Guilty” concept of American law, treats American citizens as guilty until proven innocent, and by so doing, has garnered mistrust to the extent that all credibility is lost in the perception of the American public.  while there may be no easy fix for this, the first step is indeed recognition of the problem.

That is not to say we should ever give up.  Just read Hinckley v. PSE&G, better known as Erin Brockvich’s first case, to remember that sometimes, the right side DOES win, and justice prevails.  She convinced Ed Masry, the attorney who introduced her to the case, which started out as a simple pro bono real estate case, to look further and ended up with a landmark case against the corrupt energy company.

When times get tough–and they continue to get tougher every day–only two things can happen:

1)  The tide will turn with the resolve of the righteous to forge ahead; or

2)  The Purveyors of Evil will silence the Just with threats.

It is up to us what we do next.  My guess is that Americans, as always, will continue to weather the gathering storm and prevail over the darkness that now faces them.

Godspeed, all who believe in America.  And God help those who do not.

And, most importantly, remember and honor the sacrifices of those who are no longer with us.  Rest In Peace, O Honored Ones.

Glenn Beck, whose shows have brought some of the facts to light via main stream media, has lost much credibility as a spokesman for the American people and their Constitution since his irrational and uninformed tirade against the Birther movement, which has continuously sought to vet the current Resident of our White House, who seized power under cover of the 2009 election with the complicity of main stream media, the DNC and Nancy Pelosi, among others.  His ignorance of the facts, and of our Constitution are sad commentary on the dearth of information that pervades our society at present, and, sadly, it explains much of what has happened as hoardes of uninformed Americans have allowed foreign nationals, fascists and jihadists to run amok in our country.  A h/t to Dash and of course, kudos to Stephen Pidgeon, a brilliant, well informed and patriotic American.

Dear Mr. Beck:
You are ill-informed on the “birther” issue.  Barack Obama, by his own admission, was a British subject at birth.  He has never denied having a Kenyan father, who himself was a British subject as a Kenyan native.  This is easly established under the British Nationality Act of 1948.  He is therefore disqualified to run for the office of the President, because the office is not available to subjects of other governments.  The issue is very simple, and very obvious.  Obama himself admitted that he wasn’t a natural born citizen when he debated Alan Keyes in 2004.

Let’s see you deal with this one.  There is nothing “nutty” about it, and it doesn’t depend on whether his maternal grandmother tried to cover up a foreign birth in Hawaii by placing newspaper notices.  It is as plain as your face.  BHO is a foreign national first, and an American secondarily, if at all.  That is why he thinks there are 57 states; why he doesn’t understand the constitution; why he wants to give us Britain’s health care system (it’s all in the teeth, don’t you know); why he thinks Interpol should have greater authority in the US than US law enforcement; etc.  He is a British subject and has no business holding the office of POTUS.

If you think you can overlook this constitutional crisis as not part of the Rubicon, you are mistaken.  One constitutional overlook breeds another and the next thing you know, the financial industry is nationalized, the auto industry is nationalized, the health care industry is about to be nationalized, and the energy industry will soon be nationalized.

Ultimately, it is all going to be okay, because socialism only lasts until other people’s money (OPM) runs out, and binge spender BHO has spent all the money we have and all the money we will ever have for the next several generations.  He spent all of this before he got his socialist healthcare on the table.  He and his wife have partied like Eddie Murphy in The Distinguished Gentleman (1992) since taking office, while he has busied himself with overthrowing the constitutional republic, establishing a new Islamic empire worldwide, disarming and crippling America, and unilaterally dividing Israel and Jerusalem.  The only budget constraint for Obama is ink and paper (and he is working his way around that) and his foreign policy advisor appears to be “mirror, mirror on the wall”.  He has bankrupted the nation, which the sleeping Oprah watchers are now discovering for the very first time.  The reality of the bankruptcy will hit home with gusto in 2010.  Not only will we suffer with 30% unemployment, a complete collapse of real estate, and a complete collapse of the dollar, we will also suffer the slings and arrows of dramatic military defeats, as we let this foreigner steer the ship of state.  Most Americans have no idea how bad it is going to get.

As for Obama: he will be one of history’s most reviled figures – on a par with Nero – as a fool who couldn’t even understand that when he denigrated the United States, he was destroying the very state upon which his safety and his legacy depended.  He will suffer dramatic defeat in Afghanistan and Iraq – it will not be like Viet Nam, and his name will be tarred with it.  It will be more like the disastrous defeat of Xerxes at Salamis, or the Ottomans at Sisek, or the Moors at Tours; a game changing defeat that will forever cement the destiny of the republic known as the United States of America.  Obama will join the other names in history who suffered cataclysmic losses in the lands of Magog.

His legacy?  A communist, collectivist fool, brainwashed by red diaper doper babies haunting the halls of ivy league academia whose agenda was to bring back the failed Bolshevik revolution worldwide, who brought his fully bloomed ignorance to power illegally in the US because of the needs of his narcissistic ego, whose illegitimacy caused the US to go bankrupt and to suffer its worst military setbacks in the history of the nation in just a few short months.  History will marvel at the foolishness of Americans, and historians will wonder how we as a people could have allowed this to happen.  Then, of course, historians will ultimately conclude that the demise of the greatest nation the world had ever known happened because the watchdogs whose duty it was to warn Americans of such possibilities – the so-called news media – conspired with foreign powers and global financial criminals to destroy America from the inside, as a result of their cowardice, malevolence and silence.

Contributing member:  Glen Beck, who simply could not bring himself to utter the truth about Obama – that he is a usurper, holding the presidency illegally and unconstitutionally, because he is without a legal birthright.  Let us never forget who shirked their duty to tell the truth in these last hours, and let us not allow history to forget.
