Where have all the Patriots Gone?

the_patriot_2000_film_benjamin_fights_tavingtonIt seems we have lost so many on fire Patriots these past few months and one has to wonder what could have happened to that burning desire to restore these United States of America.

America is at a Cross Roads and I fear that if this trend continues we will lose all that we have fought for these past five or so years.

Perhaps some have given up while others may have simply lost their will?

The Four Horsemen of the American Apocalypse

0000 horse

It is a sad day in America when all that can be written about is the sad state of American Apathy at a time when America needs Patriotism more than ever. The fact is America has been in a steep decline for more than a decade and there is no sign that the indifference we see from day to day is about to change.

What will it take to Wake up this Country?

Why is it that the American people always seem to wait until disaster strikes before they unite and rally for our national cause. I’m thinking of Pearl Harbor and 9/11 to site a couple of instances in which the American people came together in an effort to fight for our common causes of…

I have to admit that there have been times when I have been tempted to throw in the towel and walk away from this burning desire to see America restored to her former glory, but something deep within me fights to keep that flame burning.

At what Price Freedom?

10270477_804650399563922_8647940926913497254_n

We are Americans and living in the land of the Free and the Home of the Brave and yet there are those among us who would destroy all that America stands for. 

I have to ask, how can any native born American desire to destroy all that has been fought for by those who have gone before us for the sake of an ideology of liberal socialism that has been proven to fail worldwide?

What is the price each of us are willing to pay for our freedom?

The internet has been full of rage over the ‘Fundamental Transformation of America’ we have found under President Obama, and one has to wonder just what each and everyone of us is willing to do in order to preserve this last great hope of mankind on earth.

The November Mid-Term Elections will be upon us before we know it and the time to act is now if we are ever going to win back our Country and our Freedoms.

Sadly, most Americans aren’t paying attention to the perils we face as a Free People.

Sadly, most Americans are preoccupied with the everyday cares of life and leisure while others are sounding the alarm of eminent destruction.

Americans have not been this divided on the future course of this Country since the Civil War.

As the November Mid-Term Elections approach one can be sure of two things in this deeply divided country.

1. The losing side will Revolt.

2. A Revolution will begin.

OOPSIE: Obama’s Failed Invasion of Nevada

‘Not over’? Feds coy over next move in Nevada rancher standoff

Tensions simmered Tuesday in the standoff between federal land managers and a Nevada rancher — but the feds are being coy about how far they’ll go to pursue Cliven Bundy as both sides regroup for their next move. 

Federal land managers backed down in a weekend standoff with Bundy after hundreds of states’ rights protesters, including armed militia members, showed up to protest federal officials seizing his cattle. Some protesters had their guns drawn and pointed toward law enforcement, some of whom were also armed, on the scene — ultimately, no shots were fired and the Bureau of Land Management reported that officials left over safety concerns. 

Nevada Sen. Harry Reid said afterward that the dispute is “not over.” But whether the feds will keep plugging away with a court challenge or go further is unclear. 

One question is whether there will be any repercussions for armed protesters. 

Asked repeatedly by FoxNews.com whether the standoff might lead to a criminal investigation into possible threats against federal officers, administration officials would not say. 

A Justice Department spokesman said they had no comment on the matter. 

Asked whether BLM planned to ask for such an investigation, a BLM spokesman said “the gather is over” and referred to prior statements put out over the weekend. 

The “gather” refers to the round-up of 900 cattle, hundreds of which belonged to Bundy, on federally owned land in Nevada. Bundy has been at odds for years with the feds, who say he owes more than $1.1 million in unpaid grazing fees. BLM long ago revoked Bundy’s grazing rights on that land after citing concern for a federally protected tortoise. Bundy, though, claimed ancestral rights to the land his family settled in the 19th century and has refused to pay the fees or remove his animals. 

The case drew intense media attention as federal and law enforcement officials openly clashed last week with Bundy and his family, at times using Tasers. The standoff came to a head on Saturday, when hundreds of Bundy supporters streamed in. Top lawmakers, even those critical of the federal government’s actions, voiced concern that the dispute could get out of hand. 

Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., urged protesters to let BLM officials gather their equipment and leave the area. “The dispute is over, the BLM is leaving, but emotions and tensions are still near the boiling point, and we desperately need a peaceful conclusion to this conflict,” Heller said at the time. He also asked protesters to return home. 

So are the feds willing to forgive and forget? 

Already, Bundy supporters are citing the resolution to the weekend’s dispute as an important moment. Arizona state Rep. David Livingston, speaking with Reuters, called it a “major tipping point” for western lawmakers pushing state sovereignty issues. 

But Heller’s Senate colleague, Senate Majority Leader Reid, D-Nev., told Reno-based KRNV: “It’s not over. We can’t have, in America, people that violate the law and just walk away from it. So it’s not over.” 

At the least, BLM officials say they’ll continue their fight through the courts. 

“After 20 years and multiple court orders to remove the trespass cattle, Mr. Bundy owes the American taxpayers in excess of $1 million. The BLM will continue to work to resolve the matter administratively and judicially,” a statement from the bureau said. 

After the agency released Bundy’s cattle and left the scene, nerves were still raw. 

Bundy told Fox News that local sheriffs, wherever the BLM officials are, need to take away their guns and “disarm the federal bureaucrats.” 

“They have no authority,” Bundy said Monday night. 

Bundy’s daughter Bailey Logue told Fox News that the dispute is “about people standing up for what’s right.” 

“It was rewarding to see our cattle free again and not being tortured and back where they are safe,” she said. Logue, too, faulted the local sheriff for not standing up to federal officials and keeping them out.

Remembering the Day the American Dream Died

386474_446492082080422_2043703476_n

November 4th 2008

The United States presidential election of 2008 was the 56th quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 4, 2008. Democratic Party nominee Senator Barack Obama and running mate Senator Joe Biden defeated Republican Party nominee Senator John McCain and running mate Governor Sarah Palin.

I remember the day that a little known Senator from Illinois came on the world stage promising Hope and Change to a weary American populace. America had just endured a serious financial crisis and the housing bubble had all but wiped out  the American Dream.

The young Senator promised to Fundamentally Transform the United States of America offering hope to all those who had suffered under the so called Evils of Capitalism. Unemployment had hit an all time high and the American People were looking for answers.  Little did they know back then that this…

Fundamental Transformation of America

…would usher in Socialism and a Class Warfare Struggle that would forever Divide the American People.

Little did the American People know that Government would begin to control every aspect of our lives in these United States of America and little did they know that Our Freedoms would be gradually Swept Away.

1380711_604660816263547_448878160_n

Today we find ourselves caught between a rock and a hard place as the Takers continue to vote for those who offer Government Handouts rather than pulling themselves up and striving for that ever elusive…

American Dream

As the November Mid-Term Elections approach one can only hope that there are enough of us workers left to override those government leaches and bring about real change in the form of a Restoration of our once great former Republic.

For all of you who Voted for this

Hope and Change

all I can say to you folks is…

Here are some words of Wisdom

from our Chief Contributor AFVet

In my travels across the internet, I sense the outrage of the People that love this Country.

The outrage for the corruption that this regime has been allowed to perpetrate upon the economy, the military, the private sector businesses and the very will of the people that love this Country and are not finished in defending Her.

Congress in the past was conducive in allowing this regime to be established and some elements of it are still committed to keeping it in place.

In their arrogance and the desire to maintain control, they are missing a key concept of what this Country and Her people are all about.

We never give up

The present sitting congress has been stonewalled on everything from Fast and Furious to Benghazi, to the IRS debacle that could have allowed Obama to be re-elected through fraudulent poll statistics by restricting the influence of the conservative organizations that were on the front lines to try and stop the second term of an arrogant socialist that has no problem dismissing congress and the Constitution.

The people across the fruited plain see what the problem is but are becoming impatient as to the time table.

They are furious at the congress for allowing this abomination to go on for so long.

The 2014 election should prove to be the harbinger of where this Great Country is headed.

There is a Phoenix arising, have no doubt.

And when it does, the progressives will be advised to take notice.

How long will we allow this War on America to continue?

941468_10201407376736848_1211595244_n

The invasion of America began with the election of Woodrow Wilson and continues to this day.  Howbeit ever so subtle in the beginning we hardly noticed the enemy at our gates.  Some one hundred years after the fact we find ourselves in  amazement at the overwhelming forces that have come to bare against our Constitution and way of life. This is like awaking from a nightmare only to realize it is reality.

America is in peril today not so much because of this corrupt administration but more so because of a populace that has embraced their Marxist/Socialist ideology.  A populace that no longer embraces the values that made this the greatest nation the world has ever known, but rather, a populace that has sold their soul for a free ride.

America is on the Brink of Destruction

America is on the brink of destruction and it will be this generation of Americans that will determine whether America can be brought back to her former glory or be lost forever in the sea of apathy.

Now is the time for all American’s to rise up and speak with a loud voice. The November Mid-Term Elections will be upon us before we know it and there is no time to waste. This is the time to tell your family and friends to get involved. This is the time to get them informed. America hangs in the balance my friends.

What’s it gonna be America?

The time has come for the Tea Party to Rise up in America

1186179_592937717433028_157665131_n

By now I am sure that just about every American is fed up with the Key Stone Cops we elected to represent us in Washington.  Over the last ten or fifteen years we have watched our political leaders play out their greedy games and childish attacks on one another all the while ignoring the wants and needs of their constituents.  We have watched them in their march to grab as much power as they can from We the People all the while lining their pockets with the fruits of our labor.

I say Enough is Enough already because the time has come for us to put into power a 3rd Party that will insure our constitutional rights and put an end to the stalemate we have been seeing in our nations capitol.

The time has come and is long overdo for the Tea Party to pull itself up by its Grass Roots and become a real contender in our nations political arena.

What does it mean to be an American?

200-american-voices-flagHat tip to The Western Center for Journalism by Larry Craig

We have heard a lot about people entering our country for the sole purpose of having their children born here so that they become citizens of our country. And we call our citizens Americans. But what is America, and what is an American? Is it just a person born here? And is America (I know, the United States of America) just the name of a geographical territory in the Western Hemisphere.

To say simply that an American is whoever is born here or who has taken an oath of citizenship is like saying that the Bible or a contract is just ink markings on paper. It is true that a Bible is ink markings on paper, but it is not just that. And if America is just the sum total of those people we call citizens, then we have deconstructed or dumbed-down our ideals to make them irrelevant, undesirable, or even inappropriate.

If we don’t have an idea of what we are supposed to be like as a nation (if anything), then we have no way to evaluate how we are doing. You can’t fix something if you have no way of knowing if it is broken or what is broke. You can’t have a garden without knowing what the weeds are and what the plants are that you intentionally want to cultivate.

And you don’t create a new nation, like ours was created, without having a clear idea of what you want it to be. If we don’t know what we want to be as a nation, it’s like we are sitting in a rowboat without oars, going wherever the current and the waves push us. Like a ship without a rudder, it has no destination or goal. As long as it doesn’t sink, everything is alright.

Some people focus on the idea that we are a nation of immigrants, that America is not based on a particular ethnicity. When you say you have to be Japanese to be Japanese, you are not making a tautological statement. But you can be Japanese and still be an American.

We used to call it the melting pot, where all these different nationalities combine to form a new nationality, an American. But now we talk of the salad bowl, where each individual part of the mix retains its individual identity. There is no longer considered to be a distinctly American culture, certainly not one to be retained. Every culture is equally good; but if there is no actual American culture, then we become a mixture of all the other nations.

Is that so bad? If that’s so good, they could have stayed where they were, and we could have stayed the way we were. If the way we were was so bad, they wouldn’t have come here. If we become like the countries they came from, then we are not as great as we used to be.

If we don’t know why we are great or how we got that way, we will not know when we are losing that greatness, why, and how we can get it back.

Wait. Why do I keep referring to our country as great?

In this context, the most relevant fact is that no other country in the world has so many people who want to come here, and no other country in the world allows so many other people to do so. I am not talking about the millions of people who just want to leave their own countries because of war, famine, corruption, or persecution, though many of them do see America as the place to go to. But if this country changes to become like all the countries these people have come from, then we lose what was so distinct, or great, that made them want to come here in the first place.

And two of those distinctions are freedom and prosperity, and we will look shortly how we are in jeopardy of losing both.

If you are making a generic salad, you can add a lot of different ingredients to add to the flavor. But this doesn’t work for everything. If you are making a milk shake, and everybody adds any ingredient they like (maybe one person adds hot sauce and another vegetable juice), you don’t end up with a milk shake. You end up with something that no one wants to drink. Recipes exist for a reason. Only certain ingredients in certain proportions make the best tasting dishes.

When our country was founded, it was peopled from six different European nations: England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Holland, and Germany. Eventually, as people from other nations wanted to come here, immigration laws aimed to retain the existing ethnic composition of our country.

In 1965, at least partially as a result of the new civil rights laws, immigration was opened to all nations. While this may sound noble at first, it forces the question: what is an American? Is it just whoever happens to live here legally or permanently? What do we teach our children or the new immigrants about what America is?

We talk about American ideals: freedom of speech and freedom of religion. But many of these new residents don’t believe in these. And many of the old ones are starting to not believe in them either.

Freedom of speech involves the exchange of ideas, the right to disagree with each other, and the right to express that disagreement. But we now have political correctness and hate speech laws which seek to stifle all speech that disagrees with the current mantra.

Where the old command was to love your neighbor, the new rule is to not offend your neighbor. And you can never be too sure what will do it. You can otherwise ignore him, but just don’t offend him. Don’t say anything or do anything that he might not like.
