Let Freedom Ring

Liberty Bell

The Liberty Bell is an iconic symbol of American independence, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Formerly placed in the steeple of the Pennsylvania State House (now renamed Independence Hall), the bell was commissioned from the London firm of Lester and Pack (today the Whitechapel Bell Foundry) in 1752, and was cast with the lettering (part of Leviticus 25:10) “Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.” It originally cracked when first rung after arrival in Philadelphia, and was twice recast by local workmen John Pass and John Stow, whose last names appear on the bell. In its early years, the Liberty Bell was used to summon lawmakers to legislative sessions and to alert citizens to public meetings and proclamations.

No immediate announcement was made of the Second Continental Congress‘s vote for independence, and thus the bell could not have rung on July 4, 1776, at least not for any reason related to that vote. Bells were rung to mark the reading of the Declaration of Independence on July 8, 1776, and while there is no contemporary account of the Liberty Bell ringing, most historians believe it was one of the bells rung. After American independence was secured, it fell into relative obscurity for some years. In the 1830s, the bell was adopted as a symbol by abolitionist societies, who dubbed it the “Liberty Bell.” It acquired its distinctive large crack sometime in the early 19th century—a widespread story claims it cracked while ringing after the death of Chief Justice John Marshall in 1835.

The bell became famous after an 1847 short story claimed that an aged bell-ringer rang it on July 4, 1776, upon hearing of the Second Continental Congress‘s vote for independence. Despite the fact that the bell did not ring for independence on that July 4, the tale was widely accepted as fact, even by some historians. Beginning in 1885, the City of Philadelphia, which owns the bell, allowed it to go to various expositions and patriotic gatherings. The bell attracted huge crowds wherever it went, additional cracking occurred and pieces were chipped away by souvenir hunters. The last such journey occurred in 1915, after which the city refused further requests.

After World War II, the city allowed the National Park Service to take custody of the bell, while retaining ownership. The bell was used as a symbol of freedom during the Cold War and was a popular site for protests in the 1960s. It was moved from its longtime home in Independence Hall to a nearby glass pavilion on Independence Mall in 1976, and then to the larger Liberty Bell Center adjacent to the pavilion in 2003. The bell has been featured on coins and stamps, and its name and image have been widely used by corporations.

Abrab Spring Comes to the Obama White House OWS Style

Is Obama about to have his own Egyptian Moment?

Obama: The Egyptian People Have ‘Inspired’ America

Quoting Martin Luther King, Jr., Obama remarked that “there something in the soul that cries out for freedom,” and praised Egyptians for inspiring Americans, having “bent the arc of history” and putting “lie to the idea that justice must be gained through violence.“ In reflecting on images of parents carrying their children on their shoulders to show them what ”freedom” looks like, the American president echoed protesters’ chants in Arabic, translated as “we are peaceful.”

Speaking from the Grand Foyer of the White House, Obama‘s remarks did little to reassure America’s allies in the region and avoided speculating what the future of the Egyptian government might look like.

America Inspired?

Likewise,  Mr. President you have also Inspired many Americans in the same way.  You haven’t paid much attention to our Rally’s at the National Mall,  nor the Town Hall Meetings all across this Great Land.  In fact,  it seems the Elections of November 2010 are nothing more than a distant memory for you.  Already you are back at that old game of back door appointments and deals being done while we sleep.

Were watching you now. 

We aren’t fooled by your smoke & Mirror Tricks of pretending to move to the center. We know your a leftist Smuck and nothing is going to change that except your defeat in November.

We know you now,  Mr. President

We know you’re a Socialist, Progressive, Marxist, and were not going to let it slide.

Occupy Protesters Suspected of Throwing Smoke Bomb over White House FenceOccupy Congress

  • AP

    January 17, 2012: As Congress returns from its winter recess, protesters aligned with the Occupy Wall Street movement demonstrate on Capitol Hill in Washington to decry the influence of corporate money in politics.

WASHINGTON –  An apparent smoke bomb was thrown over the fence of the White House as hundreds of Occupy protesters massed outside the gates.

The crowds were dispersed Tuesday night and the White House was all clear. U.S. Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie says there were no arrests in the incident.

The Obamas were at dinner celebrating Michelle Obama‘s birthday, but they have since returned to the White House without difficulty.

The tense scene outside the White House follows an earlier protest on the West Lawn of the Capitol, in which several hundred protesters affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street movement decried the influence of corporate money in politics and voice myriad other grievances.Organizers had touted the rally, known as Occupy Congress, as the largest national gathering of Occupy protesters to date and secured a permit that would have allowed up to 10,000 people to participate. By mid-afternoon, the protest appeared to have fallen far short of those goals.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Can You Just Imagine The Outrage Had The Tea Party Protestors Done Something Like That?

Can the ‘Indefinite Detention’ Bill NDAA 1867 Send Americans to FEMA CAMPS Without Trial?

President Obama Signed it into Law over the New Years Holiday so I guess the answer to the question is:

YES, YES THEY CAN!

Can you not see nor smell the Stench of Oppression as America falls within its Grip? Little by little and day by day America is Falling Deeper and Deeper into the Abyss of Socialist Marxism. An American Financial Collapse will all but Seal our Fate and it is obvious this President and the Progressive Liberals in our Government are Determined to Destroy our Capitalistic Way of Life come Hell or High Water. The question remains,

What Will You Do America?

THE ENEMY IS AT THE GATES AMERICA

WE THE PEOPLE

ANY QUESTIONS?

Countdown to Violence, Anarchy, and Obama’s Excuse to Declare Martial Law

We are a Nation of Laws and are being Governed by a Lawless President. The American People must stand up and get involved now in further exposing the evil deeds and designs this man and his Motley Crew have for our Republic. Our Freedom is in Serious Danger and time is of the essence. The Election of 2012 will be upon us before we know it and now is the time to rally the troops and get your friends and family educated and Registered to Vote in that Crucial Election. The future of our Republic hangs in the balance and God Forbid,  this man win re-election all that is America will be lost.

The Big Question is, will this be the Excuse Obama needs to

Declare Martial Law

Suspending the 2012 Elections?

Rush Limbaugh:

Obama Is Behind the Occupy Wall Street ‘Riots’

This thing just didn’t bubble up out of nothing.  We now find out George Soros money is behind this, and there’s no doubt in my mind that the White House is behind this.  I wish I could tell you who, but a very prominent person asked me to never mention his name in this regard, but for months he has been telling me, “You watch, Rush, do not doubt me,” he said to me, “Obama is setting up Riots.  He is fanning the flames for riots and eventual violence.  That‘s all he’s got.”  And now you look, all of this talk about Millionaires and Billionaires and people not paying their Fair Share and this relentless assault on achievement in this country has resulted in what?  The appearance of a spontaneous combustion of angry white college students who are fed up with all the injustices that this Country is famous for.  That’s his base.

Occupy Wall Street is his base.  Those are his foot soldiers.  The Anarchists, the Union Thugs who are occupying Wall Street, Obama is now going to run for reelection against Wall Street, and all of these Schlubs in this Protest March don’t understand that Wall Street and Obama are Inseparable.

Senate Bill S679 giving Obama the Power of a Caesar/Dictator

Here it comes as we all knew it would:

B a r a c k a c u s s t u s   C a e s a r

While all of America is distracted and focused on the death of Osama bin Laden, our President has been fast at work laying the groundwork for S. 679:

Presidential Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011 to speed through the Senate and then make its way into the House and then to the President to sign.

Brought to you by your Democratically Controlled Senate

From the:  The Heritage Foundation

 The bill reduces the number of presidential appointments that require the consent of the Senate and establishes within the executive branch a Working Group on Streamlining Paperwork for Executive Nominations. Individuals nominated to senior executive offices suffer slow and detailed background investigations and mounds of duplicative paperwork before a President sends their nominations to the Senate. After nomination, many nominees suffer time-consuming inaction or time-consuming and excruciating action as the Senate proceeds (or does not) with consideration of the nomination. The sponsors of S. 679 have identified a valid problem, but proposed the wrong solution. Congress should not enact S. 679.

When the delegates of the states gathered in Philadelphia in the summer of 1787 and wrote the Constitution, they distributed the powers of the federal government among two Houses of Congress, a President, and a judiciary, and required in many cases that two of them work together to exercise a particular constitutional power. That separation of powers protects the liberties of the American people by preventing any one officer of the government from aggregating too much power.

The Framers of the Constitution did not give the President the kingly power to appoint the senior officers of the government by himself. Instead, they allowed the President to name an individual for a senior office, but then required the President to obtain the Senate’s consent before appointing the individual to office. Thus, they required the cooperation of the President and the Senate to put someone in high office.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In modern usage, the term “dictator” is generally used to describe a leader who holds and/or abuses an extraordinary amount of personal power, especially the power to make laws without effective restraint by a legislative assembly[citation needed]. Dictatorships are often characterized by some of the following traits: suspension of elections and of civil liberties; proclamation of a state of emergency; rule by decree; repression of political opponents without abiding by rule of law procedures; these include single-party state, and cult of personality.[citation needed]

How’s this for Hope and Change?

If you voted for Obama in 2008 to prove your not a Racist your going to have to vote for someone else in 2012 to prove your not an Idiot!

Providing we still have Elections


Waterboarding Works – Osama Bin Laden is Dead

The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first. -Thomas Jefferson

Who are the Criminals and who is the Government?

We now know that Waterboarding played a key part in bringing down Bin Laden so maybe it is time to find out who the Terrorists are in Our own Government.

Socialism began to take root in America about 100 years ago and began to slowly creep into the American Physique as a harmless yet beneficial way to bring about Social Justice for all. Sadly, nothing could be further from the truth. We know them as modern-day Liberals, or Progressives if you will. They change names once the current name is exposed for what it really is, Marxist/Communism. We have all seen the living conditions of people who live under such tyrannical rule and we have watched as the Socialistic Countries of Europe erupt into violent riots over the failed policies of Socialism. Here in America it is different as we are a Capitalistic Country enjoying unlimited opportunity for wealth and the American Dream. America’s Greatness sprang forth because of our Christian Values and Ideals so Socialism although having taken root here cannot prosper. There are just too many rational thinking Christian Americans living in this Great Land to ever let Socialism take hold and destroy Our Way of Life.

We are Americans  Free to speak without fear, Free to Worship in Our own way, Free to Stand for what We think Right, Free to Oppose what We believe Wrong, and Free to Choose those who shall Govern Our Country.

This Heritage of Freedom We Pledge to Uphold

The End of Socialism began here on November 2nd 2010 and will see its ultimate demise come 2012
