To all reading this post:
I said in May that I was done with my political activism, due in large part to the silence and seeming indifference on the part of the American people to act. I still feel that way. However, in light of Barry’s decision to halt deportations of countless illegals, I must “reactivate” myself, at least for this time. I believe if we do not force Congress to remove him as well as Attorney General Eric Holder and the lesbo Janet Incompetano from her Homeland Security position, we will likely be finished as a nation.
I just finished sending a two page letter to House Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith’s offices in both DC and Texas to launch impeachment proceedings against our bogus POTUS without delay. I copied my Congressman, Pete Visclosky, as well as the useless Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor and have pasted it at the end of this post in case you would like to use it to contact your own Congressmen.
I have intentionally left out my two U.S. senators right now because according to the U.S. Constitution, impeachments begin in the U.S. House. If the House approves of articles of impeachment, then we’ll get the senators going in separate correspondence.
To contact your Congressmen and women, go here and then follow the links to get to your reps. If you plan to contact them before Labor Day, and I fully urge you to so, reach them at their district offices since members of Congress are currently in recess. And make sure a copy of your letter goes to Chairman Smith. I sent mine directly to him with a CC to my Congressman, Peter Visclosky.
Below is what I sent. Feel free to modify it to suit your own tastes but do not threaten any lives in your correspondence – not only is that counterproductive, it is obviously illegal and you may well get the Secret Service or some other federal police agency on your doorstep. We may all want to see the usurper removed in the worst way but urging violence against Congress if they don’t act serves to help no one.
Personally speaking, I would love to see Congress impeach and remove Barry, Holder and Incompetano (Dufus, Dork and Dyke) and then order them to face a military firing squad for their seditious conduct. But don’t you say what you will personally do, if you have such intent, because that can get you in trouble.
If you want to share with me what you wrote, copy and paste the contents into the comments section at the end. Please make sure, however, when you write your Congressman, you post your full mailing address. Your e-mail address is optional but I always post it, despite the fact that most communications I have with my lawmakers is thru fax, which is preferable to e-mail. You can leave your mailing address off in your comments to this post but if you’d like a personal reply, add your e-mail account. I’d be happy to write you back.
Spread the Word. These stooges must go.

Dear Congressman Smith:
It is with grave urgency that I write you today. As the chairman of the House Judiciary, you have the capacity to wield a lot of clout. It is in that capacity that I urge you to fully use your power and influence by initiating articles of impeachment against Barry Soetoro, AKA Barack Obama, putative president of the United States and also Eric Holder, U.S. Attorney General, and Janet Napolitano, director of Homeland Security. I would also file charges to expel Congressman Luis Gutierrez of Illinois for his joint seditious conduct with America’s bogus POTUS. The U.S. Senate should do similarly against Sen. Dick Durbin, also of Illinois, for his equally treacherous behavior.
I know you know by now of the executive order issued this past Thursday by this man. I’m referring to the decision to allow “non-violent“ lawbreakers and trespassers to escape deportation and eventually become U.S. citizens while violent criminals, however defined, get deported.
It obviously goes without saying that every illegal alien currently residing in this country is already a criminal by virtue of coming here without an official order to do so. So now we’re going to reward them, assuming they have no violent record, with schooling, jobs, citizenship and more, all without an act of Congress. I’m absolutely beside myself. This is completely wrong!
I don’t know how much Internet you are utilizing while you and the rest of Congress are in recess but if you have time, I suggest you read some of the news articles that allow the public to post comments. I can tell you with no uncertainty that at least 80% (a very conservative estimate) of the posters are absolutely livid with Barry’s decision. In fact, I’d say the numbers are closer to 90%. The American people do not want this, period.
There are two Fox News stories on this and at last count, the number of posters was approaching 19,000. Most of the few Obama supporters agreeing with him make no compelling argument for this decision. It absolutely warrants his removal as well as that of Holder and Miss Incompetano. This decision is seditious, treasonous and impeachable. And by and large, Americans want Congress to act against this man and this administration, despite Congress’s low approval rating.
It is unconscionable that Congress has thus far refused to impeach or otherwise remove this man from office. Here are a few examples of constitutional misconduct that warrant Barry’s removal but for which Congress has looked the other way:
- His fraudulent Hawaiian birth certificate and use of a Connecticut Soc. Sec. number
- His fraudulent Secret Service registration
- His refusal to defend the Defense of Marriage Act
- His decision to try Islamic terrorists in U.S. courts instead of military brigs
- His decision to close Guantanamo Bay and put terrorists in U.S. prisons
- His decision to go declare war on Libya without Congressional authorization
- His lawsuits opposing Arizona’s and Alabama’s bills against illegal immigration
- His lawsuits against Indiana, Kansas and others for restricting abortion funding
- Operation Fast and Furious
- Obamacare and forcing us under penalty of law to buy health insurance
And now the granddaddy of them all, willful failure to enforce federal immigration law and instead granting those who willfully broke our laws legal status. This constitutes treason, an offense which our Founding Fathers declared to be worthy of impeachment. Barry has crossed that line.
So, Rep. Smith, if none of these crimes are impeachable, then millions of Americans must know what are. Look, you were in Congress when Bill Clinton was impeached and you know damn well he was impeached for far less than what the current occupant in the Oval Office has committed. The willful refusal to obey and follow U.S. immigration law is arguably felonious, don’t you agree?
Congress’s blatant refusal to investigate Barry’s Kenyan citizenship is just as treasonous as to what he has done. The American people know by and large, even if you guys stubbornly refuse to admit and look into it, that Barry is an illegal and that Congress and the courts are giving him a pass in that regard. We know that birth certificate released in late April was as phony as a $7 bill.
It is thoroughly unacceptable that Congress is refusing to take action against Barry because he is black and because blacks may riot. Skin color and race are fully irrelevant here. The numerous crimes Barry has committed, plus the highly questionable, if not outright false, matter of his foreign citizenship absolutely necessitates his removal. This matter is open and shut.
Barry has called on Congress to return early to go to work for the American people. He’s right. Congress needs to return now, not after Labor Day, to start hearings to remove him. Come Monday morning, you need to call fellow members of the Judiciary Committee, particularly those in your own party, as well as Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Cantor, to advise them of the urgency to return to Washington and that impeachment proceedings must commence promptly.
If after all these arguably impeachable crimes Congress still decides to refrain from seeking Barry’s exit, then We the People must do the unprecedented and force you and Congress to act. If that means we go in unprecedented numbers to DC, by tens of millions of Americans, despite the economic decimation of so many of us patriots and our lack of finances and time to go, then we must. If that means we stand outside every district and state office of all 535 senators and Congressmen (for those of us who cannot physically go to Washington) to compel them to act, then we must. If that means committing acts of civil disobedience, then we must. We cannot allow our country to rot at the expense of one man and a legislative body’s decision to ignore his crimes. This nation is bigger than Barry Soetoro. Congress’s perpetual ignoring of our letters, faxes, e-mails and calls to act has forced us to the brink. Our country must be saved at all cost.
As you well know, Congressman, presidents have historically been viewed as the consummate examples of patriotism, character and integrity. When a president abdicates those traits, it sends a message that it’s OK to break laws, with or without impunity. This president, a dubious one at best, has done that countless times throughout his life, both public and private. To refuse to indict him for his numerous crimes tells Americans, particularly young impressionable ones, that the high and mighty and privileged are immune from being prosecuted for wrongdoing. If you and Congress refuse to step up to the plate now, you all are just as guilty by being complicit with him.
I love my country but I hate what is being done to it. As a result, we must do our part to stop the hemorrhaging. Please, I beg of you, do the right thing now and launch Barry’s impeachment. We cannot wait til Nov. 2012 for the country to heal. It must begin now and it must begin with you and the Judiciary Committee. God bless America.
In my most recent piece, I stated that commentary would be my last until further notice. This one here is my “further notice”. And this is the finale. I have finally thrown in the towel on political activism – not because I want to but because I realize I can’t save the country by myself, nor can a few thousand. And too many Americans are AWOL.
There are only two options that I see to save the country. One is getting 50-60 million patriotic Americans (roughly 15-20% of the population) to go to Washington and not leave until Barry Soetoro is ousted. I believe this would put the fear of God in those who live there and make and enforce the laws that affect our daily lives.
But although I think this is the better of the two options, there are a couple major drawbacks. One of them is getting that number of people from across the 50 states to come. The long travel and cost to get to DC, particularly from states more than a couple hundred miles away, plus lodging, would be too heavy on most pocketbooks in this country’s desperate financial state.
The other drawback would be such an event would arguably create the worst traffic jam ever in American history. It would easily eclipse all those horrendous gridlocks we all hear about in California, particularly in Los Angeles and south of there. It would be a literal nightmare, regardless of the means of logistics used to get to DC. However, my concern here is not so much for the DC residents and law enforcement that would be forced to deal with it as it would be for the patriots making the long (or short) haul. In short, so many of the 50-60 million would never be able to be there, no matter how hard they tried. It would be the equivalent of stuffing phone booths with countless humanoids.
The second option is what I alluded to at the conclusion of that last article. And that is we would organize and mobilize citizens across all 50 states to stage daily pickets and rallies outside every district office of every Congressman and senator until action was taken to remove the usurper. A sustained presence outside these offices on a 5-6 day basis could not ignored by the press, the aides to the Congressmen and senators and the Congressmen and senators themselves. For whatever reason, despite a seemingly endless litany of constitutionally legitimate reasons to remove Mr. Soetoro, Republicans and Democrats don’t want to do the right thing and force this man out. The only way they will do so is if millions of these Americans made the jaunt to the local offices of these men and women and committed their presence there until Soetoro’s ouster is completed.
But as I said in that piece, the number of people who responded favorably to this idea (which I cannot take sole credit for) out of a massive e-mail was less than the amount of fingers on one hand. I’m not even going to break it down the percentage of the response as it was, in this writer’s view, a complete embarrassment. I cannot adequately state how disheartened I was and still am at the colossal lack of response and interest of the patriots on this writer’s e-mail database. That, coupled with a more recent turn of events, has forced me to waive the proverbial white flag. I am all but finished as an activist.
I mean, folks, what’s it going to take to force Congress to remove Barry Soetoro? His refusal to enforce America’s immigration laws and instead sue the state of Arizona for trying to do what the feds won’t – isn’t that treason? His bluntly stated refusal to defend the lawfully enacted Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) violates Article II, Section 3 to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed”. His refusal to consult Congress before waging war on Libyaand military attack on a Pakistani compound (for which I do not for one moment believe Osama Bin Laden was alive at the time of assault)? His release of a “long form” birth certificate that was almost immediately debunked as photo shopped and thus totally bogus? What about Barry’s fraudulent use of a Connecticut Social Security number? What about his alleged forged Selective Service draft registration?
This is just a small sampling of the crimes America’s putative president has committed. Congress ignores the obvious, leaving it up to the people to search for the truth. And when the truth is found and shared with Congress, it looks the other way, no matter how compelling the findings may be.
And while we have patriots who fiercely want Barry removed, virtually none of them (at least that I can see) are willing to get in their vehicles and stand and hold signs outside these Congressional and senatorial offices, demanding our elected representatives do their duty and impeach or otherwise force the usurper’s removal.
So if we refuse to do something that is not at all difficult but at most a bit inconvenient (traveling to the offices of our elected officials) and there is no national interest to do so, why should I continue my activism? How many more e-mails must we continue to forward over and over before we say enough is enough? Frankly, I’m not interested in sending any more electronic messages on how bad Obama is, what he has done, what he is doing to the country to bring it to oblivion, etc. If what we know today is far more than sufficient to warrant his ouster, why should I read dozens more e-mails and web pages of how horrible this scum is? I know enough now. He must go now. We can’t wait until November 2012. But if you really want to wait until then, I will assure you this right now – our nation is finished.
Are the American people too content to enjoy American Idol & Dancing with the Stars to be bothered with the country and what will be left for future generations? Sure seems so.
Whenever this writer has to go to the grocer to pick up necessities, regardless of which store it is, there is hardly a time where the CD vending machine stationed outside or adjacent to its premises doesn’t have someone in line using it or waiting to use it. In fact, just a few weeks ago, I observed a line of 10-12 people waiting to access the machine at one local store. And believe me, the temptation has been there for me to go up to some of these younger ones to shake them by the bootstraps, asking them where their priorities are. Sadly it can be seen that it isn’t God and country. The boob tube, Hollywood, the CD vending machines and Netflix, among other things, seem to beckon the interests of the American people more than the nation’s destruction done by our putative president with Congress looking in the opposite direction.
I’m not saying we shouldn’t educate ourselves with what is going on in the country and grind our e-mails to a halt. We should. But I don’t need to read any more stories how bad Obama is. I know that all quite well. I don’t need to know any more about Barry’s background, his bogus birth certificate, his lack of natural born citizenship, etc. The facts are out there, they cannot be denied and they are in abundance.
I look at the recent 40 Days for Life whereby men and women, teens, and boys and girls all congregated outside abortion clinics all across America, praying for an end to the holocaust on our children and counseling would be terminating moms to keep their children. The people present there have not only saved the lives of the unborn but have greatly reduced the number of people entering these houses of horror.
And if that was not enough, there were days where clinics were closed because of the presence of these ordinary men and women who sacrificed their time to do what they did.
And if that still wasn’t enough, there were reports of clinics permanently shutting their doors. You can read all these day by day heroics and miracles at the 40 Days website.
So if young and old across America can meet day in and day out for 40 consecutive days to save babies and close abortion mills, why the heck can’t we all get out in front of every Congressional and senatorial office every Monday thru Saturday for at least 40 days and put a close on the Barack presidency? It’s still in existence today because we don’t care enough to stop it. I can almost guarantee that a 40 days presence will make many a man and woman lawmaker very uneasy about being silent on Obama. A 40 day presence will compel them to act if the numbers are sustained and by the thousands and millions. It’s up to us, people. How bad do you want our putative president removed?
Until enough Americans say we want to be regularly outside of all our lawmakers’ offices, all 1500-2000 of them, until the usurper is removed, count me out of further activism. The number one thing we need is Obama’s removal. Without that, the rest of the stuff, while maybe carrying a level of importance, is ultimately irrelevant.
I still am willing to coordinate this project. But it will take each of you to express your serious interest to me to do so. Use the comment section or e-mail me at email@example.com. Without it, I’m done dancing. This is otherwise my last post, period.
After long thought and consideration, I have decided to make this piece my last for this blog until further notice. I want to share my personal thoughts and feelings for this decision and will do so at the close of this piece. But first I’d like to go back and cover something our putative president told us on the 2008 campaign trail.
Perhaps there is nothing more frightening than the thought of a military-like presence in a residential neighborhood. It’s even more chilling than seeing lines of squad cars cordoning off a street to check drivers to see if they’re drinking and/or not wearing a seat belt, the latter being a blatant unconstitutional violation of the 4th Amendment.
The images of a group of law enforcement officers walking thru a community sends a message that a crime is about to be averted or if in place, shut down. In such cases, most residents of that community would relish such a presence or at least not be bothered or intimidated by it, unless it becomes a regular pattern.
But seeing military commandos walking down our sidewalks or cruising down our streets would like send shivers up most any normal human being. Yet as disturbing as this would be, the thought of some largely unknown civilian army (with no direct ties to either the U.S. military or traditional law enforcement agencies) parading thru a city would possibly not only send shockwaves thru its residents but create massive and likely unprecedented panic and fear. Most any rational headed man or woman would equate such activity to that of a police state with images of what occurs in many foreign nations coming to mind.
I know. Because when I first heard Obama mention this civilian army at a campaign stop in Colorado, those thoughts and images raced through and plagued my entire being. I could envision the gross and blatant violation of our 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th Amendments.
And mind you, I’m no conspiracy theorist. I don’t see how any normal minded law abiding individual could not be fearful of possibly being escorted from his or her dwelling to a prison or makeshift concentration camp by a law enforcement officer or military official, let alone a civilian army official, however that may be defined.
But a couple recently surfaced items have compelled me to reexamine what Obama might have implied when he was making his run for the White House. Mind you, these are only observations. And mind you, I know as so many of you do that Obama is a serial liar. He is the equivalent of the little boy crying “Wolf!” on steroids. He should not be trusted on pretty much anything. He is perhaps an instrument of the Islamic doctrine of taqiyya.
But what if Obama meant what he said in this regard? What if he truly wants to assemble an army that is as strong as our current military forces, if not stronger? We may not have an idea of what his true intent is but if it begins like with the expansion of the Americorps as Michael Savage points out here, or with this idea, or even with this one (worth viewing since it incorporates excerpts from both previous videos, plus more), we better sober up.
One of those items introduces us to the new Barack Obama Male Leadership Academy. The question that begs for an answer upon seeing the name of the school is this: what leadership skills does America’s allegedly legit president possess that entitles his name to go on a school building and set as an example for others to emulate? But beyond that, since Obama has sealed all his papers from public purview via executive order, his very first upon assuming office, we don’t have any transcripts as a student, awards as a teacher (if he so was one) or any other related documentation from his classroom or teaching days as examples of why a school should be named for him. Therefore, we don’t know what caliber of an individual this mystery man possesses other than of the unproven hearsays from talking heads on radio, TV and the Internet.
The limited information on the schools website doesn’t reveal much of anything different than we might read about a traditional public school. Dancing Czars exposes a few tidbits of details about its chief administrator there as a result of an unlinked story posted there.
Other details that might be revealed thru a Google search pans out nothing out of the ordinary, though a short video (volume quality is poor) gives the indication that this will probably be an all black school. Based on the school district’s testing criteria, curricula here would seem to be that of any other middle school and high school in the Dallas district. So maybe there’s nothing here.
But I do have this gnawing feeling, given the army videos and what is known about Obama, that there could be something more sinister in the brewing, like:
Will the school attract Muslims and teach about Islam in any capacity?
Will there be political activities on campus, particularly ones that will endeavor to recruit students to government service and some form of military combat?
Will the school be a recruitment source for Democrats? With Obama’s name on the outside and his political prowess, I wouldn’t put this past him, despite the fact that schools are not supposed to be tools for political party organization. Recall the hubbub from Sept. 2009 when Obama used his bully pulpit to speak to public school students from the Oval Office upon their return to school.
With this being an all male school, was the gender segregation done to keep young impressionable students disciplined towards their studies? Or realizing how Obama is the most pro-homo (putative) president ever in office, knowing how he seeks to promote the agenda at every turn and how he may have such tendencies himself, will this be a subtle effort to teach and homosexualize pupils? Don’t laugh. Massachusetts has been the one state subsidizing taxpayers to do so.
It does seem a bit peculiar in a strong conservative Republican state like Texas that a school named for our alleged president (and who is largely unpopular there) now exists. Perhaps I’m reading too much into it. Maybe I’m going overboard politicizing it. But what if I’m not? There may indeed be nothing to this. But with Obama being who he is, a homosexual embracing Muslim and a person who has done nothing, despite widespread concerns, to prove he’s a natural born citizen, I’d rather be safe than sorry in saying this.
The second item is in all likelihood a bigger consideration for Obama’s civilian army. And that pertains to the tragic December repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) in the U.S. armed forces. It was a horrible decision by Congress to approve of it but it fits right in line with who Obama is and what he supports. Sadly, it’s being implemented right before our very eyes. And if you want to know how repulsive the results of repeal are showing itself to be, here you go. You have to read it to believe it.
4 months ago, Gen. James Amos, commandant of the U.S. Marines, our best of the best in uniform, made a strong case against the DADT repeal to Congress. Less than two months after, he and one of his juniors have been apparently brainwashed to do the 180 (upper video – can also be seen directly on You Tube here).
It’s a terrible blight on our nation, both the acceptance of homosexual conduct as federal policy and the foisting of it on the men (and women) in uniform. We can thank most of the Democrats as well as a few Republicans and the likely bogus POTUS for the repeal.
I know, some of you may be asking, “What does the DADT repeal have to do with Obama’s idea of civilian army – the federal military would have nothing to do with that”.
It all starts with one word as I alluded to two paragraphs ago: brainwashing.
Now let me hasten to add that I don’t know if there will be a correlation between a civilian army and the U.S. Armed Forces. But if you can “convert” a prized and principled military leader like James Amos into accepting openly degrading and unnatural sexual behavior among the men (and women) who wear the uniform, well, you might be able to “convert” anyone.
We don’t know what went on behind the scenes with Obama, Defense Secretary Bob Gates and other high ups to cause Commander Amos to alter his apparent previously strong position on homosexuals in the military. If you didn’t know how principled it was, just read the second paragraph here. Not only was he opposed to repeal but so were the chiefs of the Army & Air Force. And back in May, so was the head of the Navy.
So with our military’s finest now deluded to accept degrading and unnatural sexual acts and to allow such practitioners to openly serve, it appears we’ve reached the end of an era of integrity. What has been both historically and Biblically viewed as verboten is now publicly tolerated, if not enthusiastically embraced, as part of our “brave” new military.
So how does the DADT repeal square with Obama’s concept of a civilian army as powerful as our actual military? This is a theory but follow along.
No matter how hard the left and homosexuals on the left try to mainstream homosexual activity as normal and safe, the facts completely undo such thinking. Most rational kids with normal childhoods do not enter puberty with raging hormones to engage in sexual activity with someone of their own gender. Those who participate in such activities (more so men) find themselves personally conflicted and confused, both from a moral standpoint as well as a natural one. Those who persist in such activities find themselves dug in to it and gradually become firmly entrenched, generally believing from both a moral and natural standpoint that there is no issue with homosexual conduct. Such people cannot distinguish right from wrong and this is why there is grave danger with the change of the DADT policy.
As is known by those of us who watch and read what is going on in the White House, we know that Obama has more homosexuals and homosexual sympathizers and allies than any previous president and perhaps more than all presidents combined since Reagan. It would be too lengthy to detail all the groups and events with a homosexual “flavor” that have been part and parcel of the Obama agenda but suffice it to say that it is extensive and if you’re not sure of it, just plug it all into your favorite search engine.
With our military in the process of being brainwashed on homosexual conduct, it stands to reason that Obama may be making plans to have America’s military leaders train public outcasts to be part of his civilian army. And what better way to do so than train avowed homosexuals as well as Muslims, to the extent the two can coexist?
Radical homosexuals and radical Muslims do not like America as it is and want to make it into an image that our Founding Fathers could never envision. To do away with traditional marriage in favor of any faux form of it and to attempt to mainstream Islam and the Koran in America would drastically alter our national fabric. Yet that is exactly what Obama is doing, given the sizable number of homosexuals and Muslims in his administration. To put the two generally disaffected groups together would seem to be a Herculean task, given the views of some Middle Eastern nations towards homosexual and given how many hard core homosexuals view any religion, be it Islam or Christianity.
Yet that’s what Obama seems to be achieving, which is partly why I believe that if he is not the antichrist, he is at least paving the way for him. What other discrete and divergent groups are so enamored with this empty suit?
So if homosexuals and Muslims are heavy in the Obama Administration, more so than all previous (legitimate) presidents combined, and our U.S. military is being brainwashed on homosexual behavior and Islam, why would such individuals not be considered to be part of an Obama civilian army? Add to that the illegals currently residing in the U.S. that he enthusiastically embraces as well as disaffected black youth (which have been seen in military-like training exercises on You Tube) and you may have some form of civilian army full of outcasts beyond our wildest imaginations.
Of course, this is a theory and I accept that I could fully be in error here. But think about it. What kind of folks would consider being part of a civilian military led by an anti-American “president” other than the disaffected or those who view themselves as such? Would your normal every day Americans, even liberal ones, who go to work and raise families consider taking up arms against their fellow Americans? I’m not even sure you can get your hardest of hard core Democrat leftists in public office (the Nancy Pelosis, the Barbara Boxers, the Harry Reids, Dick Durbins, etc.) to do so.
But if you’re not an American citizen, as Barack Obama is suspected not to be, then what’s to keep you from taking arms against the country you live in. Lack of allegiance would be a dead giveaway to someone thinking of putting together a civilian army. But who’s to say Obama has any? Remember, there was likely a reason he didn’t cross his hand over his heart during the playing of the national anthem. It wasn’t an accident.
The volumes of evidence showing Obama not to be constitutionally qualified because he’s not a natural born citizen are almost insurmountable. And there is scant little, if any, evidence that Obama would not take up arms against the American people if it gets really bad. And that is getting nearer to reality, especially as Americans are looking at whether Obama really met the constitutional requirements for the presidency.
I’m not going to address the FEMA camps that have been alleged where Americans may find themselves as a result of rebelling against the Obama Administration. It has been viewed as conspiracy thinking. It may well be. But what if it’s not? Although I don’t plan to discuss it in this piece, is it out of the realm that Obama could not use these facilities against us by rounding us up and putting us there? I would not be too quick to dismiss it. A call for a civilian army arouses the wildest of imaginations, many of which should not arbitrarily be dismissed.
One last point. Some folks may think Obama was conjuring up every thought he could when he was on the campaign trail, including the civilian army. And now from what we know about Obama since taking office 2+ years ago, a good many of us know that he’s a serial liar who cannot be trusted to tell the truth on virtually anything. So is it possible that he could be lying about the civilian army as well? Yes, he could.
But what if this is the one rare exception whereby Obama tells us the truth? We would be remiss if we pooh poohed it.
As those of you know and have followed me for years, you know I love writing. I believe God has gifted me to do so. From my days of writing for The Reality Check and Alan Keyes Renew America to my Seat Belt Choice website (inactive) to my Stop the ACLU website (also inactive) to my blogs and miscellaneous places, I have cherished getting the word out on so many items. I have been blest with a rich knowledge of all the news and resources the Internet has to offer as well as the Holy Scriptures which has shaped my thinking and world view of what I have gleaned from being online for nearly a decade. It’s long been my hope, prayer and passion that what I have shared, both via e-mail and my websites and blogs, would make an impression and impact on all I’ve come to meet.
Make no mistake about it. Those of you whom God has put in my path have helped shape my thinking and world view. Your knowledge and analyses of public figures, national and world events and spiritual matters have blessed me to no end. Being able to spread the word on these items and compel lawmakers to address them for the betterment of the states and country we live in is something I am proud of.
However, there gets to be a point where one has to ask themselves (as I have) how much more we need to spread the word on something to get our message out. I have now come to that point. I no longer want to be an armchair quarterback or general, either to you, my readers and supporters, or to our elected officials. I want to be where the action is.
I can no longer sit at my computer for hours on end composing and sending compelling messages, be they in the form of e-mails, news items for my website or blog, or for action items to lawmakers at the state and federal level.
Last month, I wrote this piece. At the suggestion of a fine patriotic woman and contact, I outlined how we all must come together to encompass all the district offices of every Congressman and woman and U.S. senator in America for the purpose of impeaching or otherwise removing Barack Obama from the White House. I originally thought it would be a fabulous idea if we all went to Washington (like 20-50 million of us) to force the usurper out. I still think it is a great idea. But not too many folks can make the long trip to DC, because of jobs (for those who still have them), finances, families or simply the distance to travel to DC, especially those who live more than a few hours north, south or west of the capitol. It simply becomes not feasible because of the logistics involved.
So I proposed this idea to the many contacts I have from my Stop the ACLU days as well as others I’ve come to know since my active days there. I thought we finally had something tangible we could make an impact for. We wouldn’t have to go across the country to Capitol Hill. We could just go to the district offices of all our Congressional officials and hold up signs, demanding action from them on Obama. The pressure for Congress to act would be too great to ignore if all 535 elected officials in Congress had their local offices blanketed with impeachment and removal signs. Doing this on a daily basis would be something that could not be ignored.
As a result of my e-mail, I cannot tell you how dismayed I was when the number of responses I got to the idea on my blog amounted to less than one hand’s fingers. I thought this idea was a sure winner. But by the deafening silence conveyed from my e-mail, it was clear that a good many of my contacts did not think so, preferring to do nothing or be little more than armchair generals operating from their keyboards. We can no longer keep the status quo. Unfortunately, some of us are content to be so, despite the country being stolen from us by the likes of Obama, Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano and a House Speaker (John Boehner) who doesn’t have the balls to tell Obama to show his papers or quit, nor to insist that taxpayer abortion funds and EPA funding be removed from budget considerations.
Though we must never cease educating our friends, families and others on the numerous agenda items the country faces day in and day and the dangers Obama poses to us both individually and corporately, there comes a time where we absolutely have to leave the keyboard behind and take to the streets. This is that time. America is in crisis mode with a dangerous man in the Oval Office and a Congress with a speaker who “takes Obama at his word” instead of investigating himself whether he’s a natural born U.S. citizen.
We can call, write, fax and e-mail Congress all we want but with few exceptions, its members will not listen to us. The only way they will hear us (along with the media) is if they see a sustained presence outside their 1200-1500 offices across the fruited plain with signs demanding Obama’s removal. It’s cheaper than going to Washington and requires nothing except wheels to get to their offices and makeshift signs demanding they act immediate. Not everyone can go every day to a Congressman or senator’s office. But we can ensure that coverage is consistent six days a week. There needs to be at least 100 men and women outside of every congressional and senatorial office in America on a daily basis (Monday thru Saturday) if we’re going to have a chance to save the nation. Obama, Holder and Napolitano will not go if we stay home. Patriotism demands action now!
As the venerable conservative Jewish columnist Don Feder wrote, “Where’s the Outrage“?
Unless and until we are willing to adopt the details laid out on my previous article, America will likely further sink into oblivion. Lots of well-intentioned folks have great ideas to restore the constitutional republic via different methods. The problem is many of those methods are largely not understood by the public. The ideas are in many ways compelling. However, most are not readily comprehended and virtually none get rid of the petulant man child in the Oval Office. The idea listed on my blog is easily understood and requires no experience, just patriotism and perpetual calls for Obama to go.
The issue is not can we do it but will we? If patriotism is still alive and you want to get involved in this national effort, you’ll contact me. If it’s dead and you don’t want to get involved, you won’t. But think about what you will leave for those behind you if you decide that saving the country for your children and from a bogus president doesn’t warrant a little time and sacrifice on your part.
This is my last call to everyone. I pray for an unprecedented response. Because without it, America’s finest days may well have passed us by. And without it, my activist days will likely go into the annals of American history.
If you’re like me, you’re wondering what we have to do as a country to remove putative President Barack Obama from the White House as well as his attorney general, Eric Holder. Millions of rallies, pickets, protests, e-mails, calls, faxes, letters, etc. to members of Congress to either impeach Obama or simply call for his removal due to his all but certain lack of U.S. citizenship has fallen on deaf ears. No matter how much we cry out because of Obama’s countless unprecedented and unconstitutional actions, it seems as if the U.S. House & Senate have become immune to the voices of the American people.
So does that mean we toss in the towel and wait until Nov. 2012 to remove the impostor? Not on your life! We may not even have a country by then and I do not say that lightly. It’s almost beyond arguable that the actions of King George and his British armies prior to our nation’s founding pale in contrast to today’s constitutionally dubious president.
There are two things we absolutely must do on a daily process while the political process (and our prayers) plays out. First, we must recall some of Winston Churchill’s most notable quotes such as, “Never, never, never give up”, “If you’re going thru hell, keep going” and “We shall never surrender”. We must be in this to win. We cannot even entertain the thought of losing. Our country is literally at stake.
Second, we would do well to look to the Good Book for guidance, like Luke 18:1-8.
1And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
2Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:
3And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.
4And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;
5Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.
6And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.
7And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
8I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
Vs. 1 instructs us to pray and not faint, or in other words, not to give up. While the premise of this scripture is to continually seek and petition the Almighty for answers to our prayers, the analogy Jesus describes is the one we should look to in a political sense. However, it is imperative we do not forget God and Christ throughout the process for without staying attached to the Lord, we can accomplish nothing (John 15:5).
Verses 2-5 in our vernacular could be construed (though it has yet to occur) in our modern day to be the equivalent of asking America’s courts to hear the merits of the dozens of lawsuits challenging Obama’s constitutional credentials to be president. The suits continue to be filed and the cases continue to be dismissed without full hearings. It’s tempting to give up because the system appears to be rigged. But we mustn’t do so.
Perhaps that is how the abused woman in this parable felt. There’s no justice anywhere. Yet she continually pounded the judge’s chambers to hear her out and eventually he waved his own white flag because he was tired of being pestered. As a result, as the scripture says, he gave her the justice she sought.
Then the Lord reminds us in vs. 6 that the judge who rendered his verdict was “unjust”. And boy, do we have enough of them in today’s courts or what?
It is important in our prayer times (for those of us who know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior) to “never give up”, even when things seem bleak. It is, however, also important to be reminded that God does not always say YES to our prayers. He sometimes says NO or tells us to wait or He may answer in an entirely different manner. But it’s vital to never surrender in on our prayers, unless the prayers are totally contrary to the nature of God.
In the same way that we petition to God we must petition Congress continually to begin the constitutional process of removing the putative president. It appears that no matter what Obama is doing, Congress either ignores it or explains it away. A willing failure to secure America’s borders, suing a state that chooses to do so and thus protect its citizens, publicly refusing to defend the lawfully enacted Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and now going to war in Libya sans congressional authorization are all impeachable offenses.
We don’t know what it will to take for the U.S. House and Senate to agree that Obama has committed constitutional atrocities that warrant his removal. If refusing to defend our borders, our marriage laws and refusing to heed Congress before firing strikes on a foreign nation do not qualify as impeachable in the minds of our elected men and women, we don’t know what will. But that does not mean we quit. Yes, it’s terribly distressing for those of us with a keen sense of the obvious. Yet we must regularly pray to the Almighty for our protection and for Congress to do its job. We pray, petition our elected senators and representatives and repeat – every week, every month – until Obama is gone.
For sure this will be tedious. But like the poor woman Jesus described, we don’t abandon our constitutional obligation. We must persist until Congress says YES to the American people. And if we lawfully hassle them enough and show them the monumental proof that our likely illegitimate prez warrants removal, then they may act. To put it in the late Edmund Burke’s words, Congress may not see the light they have felt the (intense) heat.
Only then would Churchill likely be proud.
The list of individuals lining up to attack Rep. Peter King’s decision to hold hearings on so-called “Radical Islam” is far and wide. From Muslim “crybaby” Congressman Keith Ellison to Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee to the sheriff of Los Angeles to hip hop model Kim Kardashian to leftist ministers to the effervescent whiners and terrorist sympathizers at the Council on America-Islamic Relations, it appears folks from all folks of life and politics are ganging up on the New York Republican for this supposed stigmatic decision.
And you know, perhaps these folks are right. Maybe this was an unnecessary move on the part of Congressman King. Maybe there was no need to hold these hearings.
Yeah, the more I think about it, the more I agree. What a waste of time and money it was to call CAIR and other Muslim groups and individuals for something that has already been known for well over 14 centuries. Let’s go straight to the “good” book to find out.
Koran (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing: But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah. But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”
Koran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”
Koran (5:51) – “O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.”
Koran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them
Koran (9:5) – “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.”
Koran (9:23) – “O ye who believe! Choose not your fathers nor your brethren for friends if they take pleasure in disbelief rather than faith. Whoso of you taketh them for friends, such are wrong-doers“
Koran (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”
Koran (9:30) – “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”
Koran (33:60-62) – “If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and the alarmists in the city do not cease, We verily shall urge thee on against them, then they will be your neighbors in it but a little while. Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.”
Koran (47:3-4) – “Those who reject Allah follow vanities, while those who believe follow the truth from their lord. Thus does Allah set forth form men their lessons by similitude. Therefore when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners”
Crucifixion, chopping off heads, fingers and feet, slaying infidels, nah, that can’t be radical, can’t it? Of course not!
Or this most recent “act” of Islamic “kindness”.
So yeah, I agree with Ellison, Jackson and company. This is not “radical Islam”. This is mainstream Islam, straight out of the Koran. Look it up. Or if you want to isolate and check the verses about violence and avoidance of Muslims to non-Muslims, go here.
“Oh, but, Nedd, you do know most American Muslims really don’t believe or do that stuff, don’t you?”
I suppose. Perhaps you’re referring to Muslims who don’t know their Koran, right, the so-called “moderate Muslims.” OK, fine.
But what about those who do? Does the Koran instruct Muslims to kill unbelievers, cut off body parts and crucify them or does it not? I mean, do these verses exist in the Koran or don’t they?
So depending how you want to look at it, all Muslims are radical. It all depends on how you want to interpret “radical”. Most any rationally minded individual would classify crucifiers, beheaders and supporters of such heinous activities as radical.
But if a Muslim is defined as an adherent to the texts of the Koran, then regardless of their knowledge of what their so-called “holy book” contains, they all are radicals.
Or, to put it in oxymoronic fashion, they’re all mainstreamers; thus affirming a saying known in Internet circles, “there may be moderate Muslims but there’s only one Islam.”
So why should Rep. King say that he wants to track down all the radical Islamists who are part of the Al Qaida network? Should he be concerned about all Muslims?
“Oh, but, Nedd, you are a bigot. You hate Muslims. You want to stereotype them all.”
Actually the Koran has done a good job of stereotyping without my assistance. I mean, there’s one Koran, right? And there’s just one Muslim religion, right? I’m not aware of there being various sects of Islam, unlike Christian denominations like Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran, Catholic, etc.
Let’s take a couple examples of denominations, like the Lutheran and Presbyterian churches. The Lutheran Church has three different synods: the Wisconsin Synod, the Missouri Synod and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA). The Wisconsin & Missouri Synods are conservative in their worldviews, opposing same sex marriage and abortion. The ELCA is more supportive both. The Presbyterian Church has two synods: the Presbyterian Church of America and the Presbyterian Church USA. The Church of America, of which the well known Coral Ridge Church of Ft. Lauderdale, FL is part of, is socially the equivalent to the Wisconsin & Missouri Synods. The Church USA is more in line with the left leaning ELCA.
Both denominations and their factions generally embrace the Bible as the Word of God, even though the left wingers in the ELCA and Church USA stray away from some portions of it. Both denominations and their factions, as well as others like Methodist, Baptist, Catholic, Episcopalian, Church of Christ, Church of God, etc, generally regard Biblical principles as ones all should live by, though they may have varied interpretations of the Bible. They all believe in different forms of church government they, based on the interpretations they see in the scriptures.
But we know of only one Islam. You cannot find in the phone book church headings that categorize Islam into different denominations the way Christian churches are split. You certainly won’t see “Moderate Islam” next to any Yellow Pages ads under church listings on church, umm, mosque doors.
So how are we supposed to interpret Islam? How is Rep. King supposed to interpret it? Frankly, he is more or less beating around the edges of the truth. The fact is all Islam is radical (or “mainstream”) by virtue of the texts in the Koran.
This means all Muslims should be treated suspiciously, especially those we don’t know personally. After all, who can always tell by an outward appearance that one is a “normal” Muslim?
“But, Nedd, there you go again, stereotyping, lumping all Muslims into one basket”.
Sorry, I can’t help that. Based on what’s written in the Koran, if I were to sit down at the table with a Muslim (actively practicing or not) stranger in one’s home or at a restaurant, what assurance(s) do I have that I won’t be attacked with a butcher knife, ax or similar object because I do not believe in Allah or Mohammed? How do I know for sure that at any given moment that he won’t suddenly recall a graphic text in the Koran and literally apply it by clubbing me or taking on some other form of violence?
I have no such assurances. I can’t guarantee that just because I don’t live in a Middle Eastern nation that I won’t be attacked. The more than ample numbers of Islamic killings here in the U.S. and disproportionate number of Muslim onslaughts (compared to other religions) do not necessarily persuade me that I am safe around any Muslim, particularly those I do not know.
”But isn’t Christianity violent? Doesn’t the Bible sanction killing in the same way you read the Koran?”
Those are two good questions. As for Christianity being violent, if you want to call it that, about the only claims to that can be made over the last 25 years are the shootings of two abortionists, “Dr.” Barnard Sleppian in 1998 and “Dr.” George Tiller in 2009. Those murders, while not sanctioned by any God fearing and loving Christian, were strictly targeted at those who killed babies in the womb and not indiscriminately. You did not hear the words “Jesus Akbar” or something similar shouted prior to the attacks.
However, you will find little, if any, other examples of any murder or attack done in the name of the Christian faith.
Now as for contrasts between the Bible and the Koran, this page will provide some help to your thinking. But on a strictly scriptural level, may I offer my personal experience as a Christian why any such comparison between the Christian and Islamic text totally fails.
In the strictest of contexts, the Christian scriptures have never advocated violence in any way, shape or form. This can be stated since the Christian faith is based on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as laid out in the New Testament. But since the Christian faith includes the Old Testament and since Old Testament prophecy predicted the coming of Jesus Christ (or as Jews call Him, the Messiah), we can and should look to the Old Testament, also known as the Old Covenant.
There are indeed passages of violence in the Old Testament that are adequately explained for the average reader. And there are a few others, such as God’s destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 19 (for deviant homosexual activity, not inhospitality as homosexual groups claim) with fire and brimstone, and passages in Leviticus calling for severe punishment on those engaging in sexual conduct with relatives of one’s family or spouse’s family.
But such should be viewed more in line with the fact that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob hated sin and when its practitioners did what God told them not to do, they were sometimes met with the fate of death. God was a pure and holy God and certain groups and individuals met their fate thru their willful disobedience and sin. Not all sins committed resulted in death. But some did. Some of the wicked were punished by the sword and some were struck dead by the Lord. Why the Lord did what He did back then, I confess I don’t have all the answers. I admit that. And many won’t be revealed, if at all, until we get to “the other side” (Heaven for those of who proclaim Jesus as Lord).
However, at no point in the Old Testament do you find any torture on the part of any of God’s people. You also cannot find an instance of crucifixion. You do find an instance of beheading in the Old Testament when David slew Goliath; however, the chopping off of Goliath’s head occurred after he was dead, not before. You also do find an instance of hanging as occurred in the book of Esther. And yes, there were slayings (by the sword) but again, that should be interpreted as punishment for gross sin and not necessarily because the ones killed were disbelievers in Jehovah God. God did use the wicked at times (such as Pharaoh and Jehu) to achieve His purposes. So it is perfectly reasonable to conclude that punishment in the Old Testament was not necessarily for refusal to believe in Jehovah God and that punishments that did occur were for gross sin.
In the New Testament, there are ZERO instances of Christians fighting for jehad. You will find the slaying of Christian leaders during the Book of Acts as well as John the Baptist’s beheading in the gospels. But since Jesus Christ paid the price for all sins of all humanity in the New Testament (or New Covenant) by being crucified for us, there was no more need for God to strike down people for their gross sins, to continue to institute human efforts to destroy evil or animal sacrifices to atone for sin. Jesus paid it all in full!
By contrast, Allah has required for over 1400 years for Muslims to kill those who do not believe in Islam. The atrocities done in the name of Islam are too innumerable to list here but many are well known, not the least of which was 9/11. The two religions are diametrically opposed to each other. The differences are stark and are too many to be named here but if you want a fairly exhaustive list of them, check them out here.
”Aren’t there good Muslims, like Dr. Zuhdi Jasser”?
By all human understanding, Dr. Jasser is a fine patriot. He probably is a person I would enjoy a good lunch or dinner with. I have no qualms about that. But he does have a problem. And that is his faith. He identifies Muslim groups and organizations like CAIR as radical and political. And from all signs he has sought to distance himself from them.
As to the faith Dr. Jasser claims to love, as he notes in his testimony to Congress, frankly, it’s hard to see it. As stated earlier, while there may be moderate Muslims, there is only one Islam. And I cannot find anywhere on his site or in any quotes or articles of his elsewhere that he repudiates any of the verses like the above ones that cause division and hatred to exist between Muslims and Jews and Christians.
But if Dr. Jasser were to call for any of those verses to be removed, he would be excommunicated as a Muslim. Like the Bible, verses in the Koran warn of those who seek to remove them. Thus my question is thus this – is Dr. Jasser willing to pay that price? I certainly cannot see the beauty of the faith he claims to love.
A website that specifically called for divisive verses to be removed, www.reformislam.org, was online for years but a recent search for it now results in the appearance of a portal page. The site was run by a so-called reformer to the Muslim “faith” but it appears he was either cast out of Islam or no longer believes what he originally penned.
But that aside, notwithstanding Dr. Jasser’s apparent patriotism and love for his version of Islam, it appears that form of religion does not exist. So while I will not call him out on this matter, I do not feel he can sufficiently reform his religion. Virtually none of these so-called moderates come out and do so. Plus we don’t know what qualifies as moderate.
In the end, I have to come to the conclusion that all Muslims are either hypocrites or terrorists. They’re hypocrites if they don’t believe in the whole Koran or terrorists if they do. I see no middle ground. Thus as much as I may hate to say it, I have to put Dr. Jasser on the hypocrite list since he doesn’t subscribe to the jehad verses in the Koran.
As such, the sooner the public and elected officials come to view Islam and the Koran literally for what it is and that technically all Muslims are potential terrorists, the sooner we will be able to eradicate this problem from our shores.
And if that means deporting all Muslims or asking them to renounce their affiliation to Islam, so be it. The nation’s safety is more important than their religion since Islam is not the religion of peace but of war and hate, something even the hard leftist comedian Bill Maher agrees with.
Of course I admit this may seem truly radical in the definition of the word but if the public cannot differentiate hypocritical Islam from terrorist Islam, then what are we supposed to do? We can live with hypocrites. We do every day. But we cannot live with terrorists, meaning those who are literal adherent of every word of the Koran. The sooner Rep. King and others like him who both have the power and will to put a stop to this can frankly address this critical problem, the sooner our nation will be safer.
Profiling Muslims is absolutely essential to the safety of America. We may be pilloried and pummeled for this view but there are no terrorist Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Sikhs, Hindus and atheists committing atrocities in the name of Allah and Mohammed. Groups like CAIR can howl and threaten to sic the ACLU to keep America unsafe but in the end we must profile and view Islam exactly as it laid out in the Koran without a scintilla of denial or we will end up paying a stiff price for not doing so.
Dr. Martin Luther King paid heftily in the 1960s to ensure the conveyance and protection of civil rights for blacks as well as all Americans. The question nearly a half century later is this: is the New York Congressman by the same last name (as well as other members of Congress) willing to pay in the same fashion (if necessary) in order for the right of all Americans to live, let alone be entitled to their civil rights. Because if we don’t have the right to live, civil rights are moot. And we may well lose both unless we do the politically incorrect and unprecedented thing and look at Islam and the Koran exactly for what it is. And if that means purging Muslims from our shores, it must be done. The right to life comes before liberty, pursuit of happiness and civil rights. Civil rights means zilch without life. And life and lives will be lost unless political correctness on Islam is buried 6 feet under.
God save America!
