1932395_687410601314428_638716584_nIn a few days America will celebrate the long awaited Spring after a most brutal Winter has left us all but exhausted. 

There is another American Spring coming and Patriots across this country are gathering to once and for all put an end to the Brutal Oppression of the Obama Winter we have had to endure these past five years.

1452532_665797856797598_1767920483_nThe American people have had enough and the poll numbers are the proof in the pudding. 

Obama and his cohorts are back peddling on Obamacare and running scared as the November Elections loom on the horizon.

1925329_664035887007384_3335739_nMr. President, the American people are Fed-Up and even those moderates you count on are starting to lean Right!

Make no mistake about it Mr. President, your Lame Duck Days will begin with the November Mid-Term Elections and We the People will finally begin to take back Our Country.

Those Wacko Gun Control Activists are at it again!

486114_600661426628077_925954504_n

It is common knowledge that the last two attempts at mass murder were committed using Shot Guns (most likely on the advice of Joe Biden) instead of the Semi-Automatic AR15 or AK47 large capacity clip weapons used in the past.  The gun control advocates have labeled these weapons as ‘Assault Rifles’ but just so you know, they are not. 

Our government has classified an ‘Assault Rifle‘ as one that fires in ‘Fully Automatic‘ mode similar to a Machine Gun.

Well, just when you think you’ve heard it all, Fox News comes up with this latest report!

Gun control advocates vow to take fight into 2014 elections, spend millions

Gun control advocates acknowledged Sunday that they were disappointed with efforts this year to tighten firearm laws across the country but vowed to continue their fight, including spending millions on their candidates in next year’s elections.

Their comments came one year after the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre in which 20 students and six adults were fatally shot in Newtown, Conn. However, Congress failed to pass no major gun-control legislation in the aftermath.

“We get disappointed,” said Mark Kelly, who co-founded the gun-control group Americans for Responsible Solutions with wife Gabrielle Giffords, the former congresswoman who was shot on the campaign trail in 2011.

The retired astronaut and Navy captain told “Fox News Sunday” the defeat of the so-called, bipartisan Manchin-Toomey Senate gun bill was “not a good day” but that his group plans to spend $25 million in the next election cycle.  

Though the focus of America’s gun debate appears to be shifting from weapons bans to keeping firearms away from criminals and the mentally ill, gun-rights advocates seem steadfast in their efforts to limit background checks and repeal laws that prevent people from defending themselves against attackers.

“There’s no victory until we get guns in school and elsewhere to protect ourselves,” Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, told Fox News. “The legislation that is on the books is lethal … and we simply have to get rid of them.”

Kelly said that anti-gun groups were able to spend about as much as pro-gun groups in the recent Virginia gubernatorial race in which Democrat Terry McAuliffe defeated Republican Ken Cuccinelli — a sign that the balance of power is shifting after his side got outspent in the Capitol Hill gun debates.

Carlee Soto, whose sister was killed in the Dec. 14, 2012, attack at Sandy Hook elementary, in Newtown, Conn., also acknowledged the effort to tighten gun laws has been difficult, but she remains optimistic.

“Some days I don’t want to speak in front of the camera … but my sister can’t do that,” she told Fox News. “I believe we will have sensible gun laws in the future.”

Is President Obama Naughty or Nice?

Is President Obama Naughty or Nice?

Seems the jury is still out on that question with about 51% of the American people who voted for him a second time.

Recent poll numbers indicate a sharp decline in this Presidents approval ratings.

Could these be some of the reasons for that sudden drop?

Massive NSA spying on Americans?

Arming the IRS and DHS better than our own Military?

IRS targeting Conservative Groups?

Illegal AP wiretaps?

Relieving out top Military Commanders?

A President being caught in lie after lie?

 Sealed Presidential records?

BEST SUMMATION OF BARACK AND MICHELLE EVER!
Mychal Massie is a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles.
massiewnd

The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obama’s? Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama’s? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture.”

The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.

I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous. I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress.

I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people.

The Reagan’s made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. Obama’s arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?

Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama’s have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility.

I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to not being able to be proud of America. I view that statement and that mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world.

Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do same. I have a saying, that “the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide.” No president in history has spent millions of dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.

And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother’s death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father’s military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address. He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today.

He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel. His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.

I don’t like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.

Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.

I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.

As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, “Nero In The White House” – “Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood…

Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America’s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.”

The Moral Majority has lost the High Ground and America has become a Liberal Prison

64227_10151541833071069_678362571_n

Here is a comment from another post in which

The Bard of the American Redoubt

makes a most disturbing statement. 

Could this be true?

I come from the side that believes the hour is late. The gray state is being implemented. Citizens are disappearing, being gunned down and murdered. The FedGov has gone much further than “poking the tiger.” I don’t think these sociopaths can be reasoned with.

This reminds me of a bully and a guy in the park. The guy says “don’t touch me” The bully pokes him. The guy says, look I am backing up here, don’t come over this line, the bully crosses the line. The guy says, I am over here, WAY over here, standing under this tree, man if you keep messing with me I, I, I… I am going to do something. The bully laughs at him and continues one. The cowardice of all of us, myself included is disgusting. Basically we may not deserve liberty and freedom.

If you still think you can work this out with “normal politics” you are part of the problem.

And yea, I agree with Bill O’Reilly sometimes and not. That is ok, all thinking men will disagree at times. I will say Bill O’Reilly who gets his living from Outrage Porn doesn’t really want this system to come “unglued.” That would cost him.

The bully not only has poked you, he has bitch-slapped your wife, knocked your children’s teeth out and taken all of your money. So … what are you going to do about it? If you care, more here: http://wp.me/p2Qno5-175

In another comment we read this:

I hope what you are trying to do works. I really, really do. However to me you are like Jews trying to make nice in Germany in 1930 or so. If you think you can answer what is happening with “more faxes and voting on their electronic machines” or you don’t realize there is no longer a moral majority, taxpaying God-fearing men are now a permanent minority. Welcome to it. You don’t get that K-street pays both sides, Geb Bush or Hilary Clinton, doesn’t really matter now does it? NSA shut down? socialist state significantly reversed? There are more people who want free stuff, then tax payers. Thus who are you trying to convince to vote their free stuff way? You really think holding signs will get people to want to “work hard, and stop living off of others?” Then as I said “you are now part of the problem. A distraction (like porn) from what we must all be willing to do. From reality.” Please never say “…I didn’t see this coming…” Here is a line by Anna Barnhardt.

“You people had better man up and do something real and concrete to depose these neo-Stalinist psychopaths. Mere talk and hand-wringing leads straight to mass graves.”

Good luck in all you do fighting for freedom.

America in Retreat

FLAG-IN-DISTRESS

Obama puts America in Dire Distress

President Obama’s Forward 2012 Campaign has led this Country back to the days of a pre World War 2  economy and Depression.

His Middle East Policies have led us into a retreat world wide unlike anything we have ever seen before.  One has to wonder if the stage is being set for World War 3.

-From Fox News we get this report-

State Department urges American citizens to leave Yemen amid terror threat

The State Department on Tuesday ordered all non-essential personnel to leave the U.S. Embassy in Yemen and urged all American citizens currently in that country to depart following the threat by Al Qaeda that has triggered temporary shutdowns of 19 American diplomatic posts across the Middle East and Africa.

The department said in a travel warning that it had ordered the departure of non-emergency U.S. government personnel from Yemen “due to the continued potential for terrorist attacks” and said U.S. citizens in Yemen should leave immediately because of an “extremely high” security threat level.

“As staff levels at the Embassy are restricted, our ability to assist U.S. citizens in an emergency and provide routine consular services remains limited and may be further constrained by the fluid security situation,” the travel warning said. The U.S. Embassy is located in Sanaa, the capital of Yemen.

Are you willing to pay the price for Freedom?

the-cost-of-freedom

I am sure we have all heard some kind of a Conspiracy Theory at one time or another.  With the advent of the Internet and Google Searches it has become much more prevalent in our times.  So, what should we make of all these so called plots against us?  You know, the average American Citizen.  I have put together a sampling of videos and written information for you to view and consider.  I don’t pretend to have the answers on these Theories,  but I have to admit,  I am looking at them a lot more seriously these days.

Let’s take a look: Secret Societies:

This speech was given just weeks before he was Assassinated in Dallas, Texas. What was he trying to say to the Press Corps that day?  Was he trying to expose the Secret Society of which he spoke?

New World order:

Imagine that? The United States becoming a State within the confines of this One World Order and Governed by the United Nations. Guess we wouldn’t need Our Constitution anymore.

FEMA CONCENTRATION CAMPS:

This topic covers a span of time going back to around 1984 through present day.  Let’s take a look at what has been uncovered since the revelation of a code named Top Secret called REX 84.  A google search of that code name can be very enlightening.

Rex 84

Rex 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984, is a contingency plan developed by the United States federal government to suspend the United States Constitution, declare martial law, place military commanders in charge of state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens who were deemed to be “national security threats”, in the event that the President declared a “State of Domestic National Emergency”. The plan stated that events that might cause such a declaration would be widespread U.S. opposition to a U.S. military invasion abroad, such as if the United States were to directly invade Central America[1][2][3][4][5][6]. To combat what the government perceived as “subversive activities”, the plan also authorized the military to direct ordered movements of civilian populations at state and regional levels.[7]

Rex 84 was written by Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North, who was both the NSC White House Aide and NSC liaison to FEMA, and John Brinkerhoff, the deputy director of “national preparedness” programs for FEMA. They patterned the plan on a 1970 report written by FEMA chief Louis Giuffrida, at the Army War College, which proposed the detention of up to 21 million “American Negroes”, if there were a black militant uprising in the United States.[1] [8] Existence of a master military contingency plan (of which REX-84 was a part), “Garden Plot” and a similar earlier exercise, “Lantern Spike” were originally revealed by journalist Ron Ridenhour, who summarized his findings in “Garden Plot and the New Action Army.”[9]

Rex 84 was publicly mentioned during the Iran-Contra Hearings in 1987.[unreliable source?][10][11]

Exercises similar to Rex 84 happen regularly.[12] For example, from 1967 to 1971 the FBI kept a list of over 100,000 persons to be rounded up as subversive, dubbed the “ADEX” list.[13]

The basic facts about Rex 84 and other contingency planning readiness exercises—and the potential threat they pose to civil liberties if fully implemented in a real operation—are taken seriously by scholars and civil libertarians.[14]

But wait, there’s more:

SOCIALISM:

I hope you found my little overview of these Conspiracy Theories somewhat enlightening.  There is so much more to discover out there concerning the deeds of powerful men/women and their plans for you and I.  Two Presidents, one a Democrat and the other a Republican have tried to warn us. Now it is up to us to be vigilant and prepared should any of these Conspiracy Theories ever become our Reality.  Remember Marshal Law could be declared at a moments notice and Our Constitutional Rights would then be suspended.

Change the Subject and Dodge the Scandals

obamaspeak_20130722_124649Hat tip to Fox News for this report

Obama tries to refocus message on economy amid summer setbacks

ObamaCare is getting rickety. The IRS scandal is expanding. And every few days, a new leak emerges about another U.S. surveillance tactic. 

Time to change the subject? 

President Obama, whose administration is grappling with a succession of burgeoning scandals and policy headaches, is trying to hit the reset as the summer drags on without any outright second-term victories under his belt. That effort begins Wednesday, when the president plans to kick off a series of addresses on an issue not without its own troubles — the economy. 

Obama’s team tried to build the anticipation on Sunday, with senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer sending out an enthusiastic email about the upcoming event at an Illinois college — one Obama previously visited as a U.S. senator. 

“This Wednesday, almost five years after the financial crisis fueled a devastating recession, and two years after a debate over whether or not America would pay its bills that harmed our recovery, the President will return to Knox College to kick off a series of speeches that will lay out his vision for rebuilding an economy that puts the middle class and those fighting to join it front and center. He’ll talk about the progress we’ve made together, the challenges that remain, and the path forward,” Pfeiffer wrote. 

The White House says the Wednesday speech at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill., will be the first of many speeches on the economy Obama intends to deliver over the next several weeks ahead of key budget deadlines in the fall. A new fiscal year begins in October, and the government will soon hit its borrowing limit. 

But the speech also comes as the administration tries to shake off a string of setbacks. 

The administration earlier this month delayed a key provision of the federal health care overhaul — a move which raised broader questions about the law’s implementation, and prompted the House to vote last week for a delay of the law’s insurance coverage requirements. Republicans still want to repeal the law entirely. 

Separately, the controversy over the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups — a practice first revealed in May — continues to build. While House Democrats allege that liberal groups may have been targeted too, House Republicans held a high-profile hearing last week where a retired worker alleged a political appointee’s office was involved in screening Tea Party applications. 

Add to that the trouble the administration, and Congress, have had on several legislative fronts. A comprehensive immigration bill cleared the Senate, but House Republican leaders are throwing the brakes on the legislation. House Speaker John Boehner again made clear in an interview on Sunday that the House will break the issue into smaller bills. 

“The House does not like the Senate bill. It’s one big, massive bill ,” Boehner said on CBS’ “Face the Nation. “What we’re going to do in the House is we’re dealing with this in a common sense, step-by-step approach.” 

Congress still hasn’t passed a bill to roll back a recent hike on federally subsidized student loan rates — something Obama has deemed a priority. 

And the recent overthrow of Mohammed Morsi in Egypt has strained the administration to articulate a new policy toward the crucial Middle East country. It has so far declined to label the overthrow a coup, mindful of provisions that would require the U.S. to cut off military aid to the country. But it’s also unclear whether the Egyptian military, which orchestrated the overthrow, will move quickly to call elections. 

Pfeiffer, in his email to supporters, suggested the controversies in Washington over scandals and other issues are a distraction. 

“The president thinks Washington has largely taken its eye off the ball on the most important issue facing the country,” Pfeiffer said Sunday evening in a message sent to the White House’s public email list. “Instead of talking about how to help the middle class, too many in Congress are trying to score political points, re-fight old battles and trump up phony scandals.” 

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Monday that Obama will be talking about where the economy needs to go from here. 

“We have come a long way from the depths of the Great Recession,” he said. 

In his economic pitch, Obama will talk Wednesday about efforts to expand manufacturing, sign up the uninsured for health care coverage, revitalize the housing industry and broaden educational opportunities for preschoolers and college students. He will also promote the economic benefits of the immigration overhaul. 

Obama is pushing to end the federal budget cuts that kicked in this year so they don’t extend into the next fiscal year. That could create a showdown with congressional Republicans in September, as the end of the current fiscal year approaches. Some Republicans also want more deficit reduction as a price for raising the debt ceiling, a bargain Obama says he will not make. 

Republicans are fundamentally opposed to Obama’s mix of budget cuts and tax increases. It wasn’t until after last year’s election that Republicans agreed to increase taxes for the wealthiest Americans in a deal that kept taxes for most Americans at rates set during the administration of President George W. Bush. 

Appearing on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday, Boehner said the way to get the economy moving again is by stopping unnecessary regulations and bringing the federal deficit under control. 

Describing “this new normal of slow economic growth, no increase in jobs that are available, wages are being basically frozen,” Boehner said: “We’re squeezing the middle class. And I would argue the president’s policies are getting in the way of the economy growing, whether it’s Obamacare, whether it’s all these needless regulations that are coming out of the government.” 

Pfeiffer said Obama will unveil some new ideas, outline steps Congress can take and identify measures he can initiate on his own. 

“He’ll talk about the progress we’ve made together, the challenges that remain and the path forward,” Pfeiffer said.
