Help me keep this blog up for a long time!

I won’t bore you with details. I am just not in a good way right now money-wise.

I’m not going to end up in the street, I am just not working and money is at an all time low. I do not have Google AdSense anymore, they yanked my account for an unknown reason.

So, I’m asking for help.

As another well-known blogger would put it, hit the freakin’ tip jar!





If you want this to be a regular thing:

Again, I hate asking. But, reality is reality; and I just do not have any job prospects lined up. The Business? Heh. that’s a joke anymore. I did have a job prospect, but that all fell through. Nothing I did on my part, just did not work out at all.

Oh, by the way; on Thursday, June 28′th — I will be 40 years old. 40 years old, no job, broke and living with my parents. You have any idea what that does to man? You could never even begin to imagine. :(

Also too, if you do not like or do not trust PayPal; I can give you my home address. It is out there, if you are good with Google. But, if not and you want to help out, without using PayPal, let me know.

Thanks for your loyal readership for the 8 years that I ran this blog.

Patrick Buchanan writes a column that every Conservative should read

I will be the very first to confess that there are issues in politics that I very high disagree with Patrick J. Buchanan on.  However, Mr. Buchanan does have a good idea of what Conservatism should be about; having said that, let me personally recommend this article here by Patrick Buchanan.  Again, I have disagreed with the man, at times; but this is not one of them.

This article ought to be in the e-mail inbox of every darned last Conservative in America this morning.

Video: Ron Paul might be wrong about many things, But…….

This is not one of them.

Video: (via HotAir.com)

Although, I would advise everyone to read the comments over at HotAir.com on this video. Seems the good doctor is not totally telling the truth here.

Exit Question: I just wonder, does this include little Jew babies too, Dr. Paul? Hmmmm? I ask this seeing that in the little newsletters, with your name on them — you referred to them in some very nasty ways. I also wonder if it includes little black babies too, seeing all of the nasty racist stuff you said about them too.

Sarcasm aside, this is my point: The problem with Ron Paul and his followers, is they believe that liberty only extends to the White Anglo-Saxon people of America; that is selective liberty and it is what America did for the first years of it’s founding, until Abraham Lincoln (A Republican!) put a stop to it and again in 1964, when we stopped the selective liberty process entirely.

Again, it is great video; but Ron Paul is not being totally honest as usual. :roll:

Terror plot directly linked to Iran uncovered by the U.S. Government

This does not look good at all. :(

FBI and DEA agents have disrupted a plot to commit a “significant terrorist act in the United States” tied to Iran, federal officials told ABC News today.

The officials said the plot included the assassination of the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the United States, Adel Al-Jubeir, with a bomb and subsequent bomb attacks on the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Washington, D.C. Bombings of the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Buenos Aires, Argentina, were also discussed, according to the U.S. officials.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said in an announcement today that the plan was “conceived, sponsored and was directed from Iran” by a faction of the government and called it a “flagrant” violation of U.S. and international law.

“The U.S. is committed to holding Iran accountable for its actions,” Holder said. He said the White House will be meeting with federal agencies before announcing “further action” in regards to Iran.

FBI Director Robert Mueller said the arrest of a suspect in the plot shows the U.S. will “bring the full weight of [the] law to bear on those responsible” and that “any attempts on American soil will not be tolerated.”

The stunning allegations come against a backdrop of longstanding tensions between Iran and the United States and Saudi Arabia. In the last year, Saudi Arabia has attempted to build an anti-Iran alliance to push back against perceived aggression by Iran in the region.

This basically proves my point; that Bush did not do enough after 9/11. If Bush had acted like a real President and not like a wet rag after 9/11, we would not have this sort of troubles. Although, I will admit; I have sneaky feeling that this might spark some sort of Military action. Although, I do not believe it will be of the scale and scope of the War in Iraq.

Ed Morrissey, of whom I respect, says this:

If true, would that not be an act of war?  We’re presently using drones in Pakistan and Yemen against al-Qaeda terrorist networks for plotting similar attacks, thanks to the AUMF from October 2001, even though we’re nominally allied with both nations.  If the government of Iran plotted attacks on American targets, that should require a response from the US, should it not — or do we send a signal that even attacks from actual nation-states fall under the rubric of law enforcement?

[...]

If we’re charging an official of the Iranian government with complicity or worse in this plot, then it ceases to be a law enforcement issue and becomes a military and political issue instead.  This isn’t a case of espionage but of sabotage or worse, which would be an act of war by anyone’s definition.  If we’re not willing to respond in kind, we then send a signal to hostile nation-states around the world that attacks on the US are low-risk, high-reward affairs — and we’d better get ready for an avalanche of them.

There are some who would say, “Oh, he is just being a Neoconservative!” That might be so, but he is being a Neoconservative, who happens to be right. Ron Paul and ilk are just dead wrong. when it comes to Iran, Islam and the war on terror. They might have a point on Nation Building; but on this sort of thing, Ron Paul and his mindless followers are simply wrong.

 

The Republican Party just ensured that I will most likely vote libertarian…again

This comes via Doug Welch on Google+

(H/T Gateway Pundit)

Capital New York reports:

With Governor Chris Christie confirming today that he won’t seek the presidency, some big-name donors are finally ready to commit themselves to Mitt Romney.

“A lot of us who normally would have been in this presidential race a long time ago, have been waiting for Christie to make a decision,” said Georgette Mosbacher, a Republican uber-fund-raiser and finance co-chair of the Republican National Committee who was among a group of Republican bundlers hoping to convince Christie to enter the race. “I think tomorrow, we’ll be contacting one another and probably put something together with Romney.”

“I’m going to go with Mitt Romney,” said John Catsimatidis, another donor who had been intrigued with Christie, in a brief phone interview this afternoon.

“You’re calling about yesterday’s news,” said Catsimatidis, who said he had gotten the indication Christie wouldn’t run from some of the governor’s advisers yesterday.

Catsimatidis said he had started pitching Romney in the last couple weeks, on the expectation the governor wouldn’t seek the nomination. At a meeting with other conservatives last Monday night, Catsimatidis said, he made the pitch for Romney’s electability.

“The speech I gave to my conservative friends was, if you pick somebody who makes you 100 percent happy, you only get 47 percent against Obama,” said Catsimatidis. “We have to capture the middle in order to win and make a change in this country. Ninety percent of them stood up and said, ‘You’re right.’”

Mosbacher conceded there was “some disappointment” at Christie’s decision, but said the public flirtation with Christie wouldn’t make it tougher to raise for Romney, especially with Texas governor Rick Perry suddenly slipping in the polls after a couple of disastrous debate performances.

“Look, we’ll raise the money that’s necessary to beat Obama,” she said. “It’s not going to be any harder than it would have been a month ago, or two months ago, or six months ago. Now it’s pretty clear. Perry has dropped pretty quickly. And I would say that the race is now Romney and Obama. Quite frankly, the enthusiasm wasn’t there at the outset. He’s less conservative than a lot of us would like. However, our first and foremost goal is to defeat Obama. And we do believe Romney, in terms of independents, will be a strong candidate. We will coalesce behind him now.”

Mosbacher said the big bundlers in her circle “do not consider a Perry factor.”

I will tell you right now; if this is what the GOP elite are saying, I will most likely vote libertarian party again, or not vote at all. Because I will tell you this; if Mittens is the nominee, we are sunk. It will be four more years of Barack Obama.  Further, I consider this very highly offensive, because the GOP has a good candidate in the primary that could actually beat Barack Obama; that being Herman Cain. On the bright side, this will keep that two-bit, racist asshole Ron Paul out of the General election.

 

 

Niggerhead

I really had no intention of writing about this silly story; but, because it is to the point that it is starting to sound ridiculous, I felt some commentary was warranted.

Firstly, my positions:

  1. I am not a Rick Perry fan boy
  2. I think this whole “NiggerHead” story is borderline tabloid news nonsense
  3. I do not honestly believe that Rick Perry is a racist — like the Democrats in Texas.

Look, I think this sort of “Guilt by association” thing is nuts — to a point.  What I mean is this — it is one thing to be a part of a Church, who’s Pastor says things, such as “God Damn America” and you, your wife and kids go there and interact with those people.  It is another entirely to try to tie someone to, of all things — a rock, that was painted over long before you even rented the property.

Furthermore, I think Conservatives who are attacking Herman Cain need to shut up.  Herman Cain is a black man and I do believe that entitles the man to make any comment about race or racism that he sees fit make, if he so feels fit to do so.  Besides all of that, Herman Cain said he was not playing the race card and I do tend to believe him.  Herman Cain is not Al Sharpton my friends, nor is he Louis Farrakhan; and I believe Conservatives should not be reacting to Herman Cain’s comments as if he is Louis Farrakhan or Al Sharpton either.

My biggest issue with Rick Perry is from Texas and that he possesses a bit of that Texas swagger.  The United States of America, nor the Republican Party, nor the Conservative movement need another Texas swagger leader again.  We had that for eight years in this Country and it did nothing for this Country, at all.  We found this out with Iraq, the bailouts, no child left behind and all of the rest of the former President’s blunders.  Granted, this current President makes the former look like a Rhodes Scholar.  However, I do not wear partisan blinders and I know full of the blunders of the last President.  My question to all of you is; do we want that….again?

Thus is the conflict of conservative politics — purity versus electability.  If conservative politics were drugs, Ron Paul is Persian white heroin.  The problem is this; Ron Paul addicts, as it were, just love him.  The rest of us, are scared to death of him and his foreign policy!  Therefore, to be clear here, I am, by no means, a Bill Kristol or a John Podhoretz type, when it comes to foreign policy — but a little common sense is needed when dealing with the Middle East.  I will not belabor the point; I think you all know what I mean here.  (I hope!)

Simply put, purity over electability will be the death knell of the Republican Party.  Just ask anyone who was around in 1964 in the Republican Party.

 

 

Video: Ron Paul now using the Military as a campaign prop.

I received a rather angry e-mail from a friend of mine, who served in the Military, who reads my blog daily. He showed this video.

It appears that Ron Paul is now using the Military as a campaign prop to get elected; you know, sort of like George W. Bush? Anyhow, here is the video:

The truth is Ron Paul is a avowed isolationist and would dismantle our Military, just like Jimmy Carter did.

There’s a ton more of stuff about Ron Paul on this Blog. Click this link here and here — and learn the truth about this dishonest piece of crap.

Memo to Ron Paul’s campaign and to the man himself — the Military is much smarter than that dude. Seriously. :roll:

Another bone of contention is this; this sends a ever so subtle message, that the Vietnam War was some sort of evil war and that it cost the lives of many people needlessly. Hmmm, now where have I heard this one before? Oh Yes! The left! I would be willing to bet a great deal of money, that there are many vets out there, that would take issue with this video; and the bullcrap lies that it coveys, especially those about Ron Paul.

 

Rick Perry explains himself

…and does a decent job at it too. Basically, he now says the same thing as Romney. Most likely, he is trying not to sound like Ron Paul or worse.

The first step to fixing a problem is honestly admitting there is a problem. America’s goal must be to fix Social Security by making it more financially sound and sustainable for the long term. But Americans deserve a frank and honest discussion of the dire financial challenges facing the nearly 80-year-old program.

By Alice Keeney,, AP

As I said at the Reagan Library recently, Social Security benefits for current recipients and those nearing retirement must be protected. For younger workers, we must consider reforms to make Social Security financially viable.

These are the hard facts: Social Security’s unfunded liability is calculated in the trillions of dollars. Last year, annual Social Security outlays exceeded annual revenues for the first time since 1983. The Congressional Budget Office projects that outlays will be roughly 5% greater than revenues over the next five years, worsening as more and more Baby Boomers retire

Video: Living proof that Ron Paul is a paranoid conspiracy theorist and has NO business being President of the United States

I’m sorry, but when you start spewing this sort of ignorant stupidity; you lose all credibility with me. Especially when you say it at a serious Presidential debate.

(H/T HotAir.com)

I am just going to say this; I too have doubts about our Government and I too, do realize that there is cronyism in our Government — on both sides of the aisle. I also, with a full B.S. filter enabled, do sometimes read what the conspiracy theorists write. I do mainly read them for the entertainment value. However, I usually put no trust, value, faith or stock in the what is usually printed on those websites; mainly because those sites contain about 10% or less of truth and 90% or more of someone’s opinion or as is properly called theory.

That being said; I do not want my President to be a conspiracy theorist, who spouts this sort of ignorant stupidity, at all. The Republican Part is not; I repeat is not, the party of the Conspiracy theory. There might be some on the far, far, right that might believe in this idiotic nonsense, but most Republicans, including the one that I gave the Hat Tip to, find this sort of nonsense laughable. Let me also go on the record as say that I also am one of those who find this ignorance to be laughable as well.

I just know now that the Ron Paul bots are going to come here and call me a Neo-Con, a Zionist, a JEW (!) ( :shock: ) or a liberal.  Let me say this; save your breath and my bandwidth — both of my parents come from the south and I was born in Southwest Detroit as my About Me page does say.  If you Ron Paulians have a problem with that I say; you are free to kiss my Lilly-white, hairy, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant, Independent, Fundamental, King James Bible thumping Ass. (wait! Can Christians say stuff like that?!???!? :shock: ….. I just did... :D )

That, my friends…. is all.

 

Is Israel on the brink of an all-out war with neighboring countries?

It sure looks that way. (H/T Drudge)

Recent revolutions in the Arab world and the deteriorating ties with Turkey are raising the likelihood of a regional war in the Middle East, IDF Home Front Command Chief, Major General Eyal Eisenberg warned Monday.

“It looks like the Arab Spring, but it can also be a radical Islamic winter,” he said in a speech at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv.

“This leads us to the conclusion that through a long-term process, the likelihood of an all-out war is increasingly growing,” the IDF general said.

“Iran has not abandoned its nuclear program. The opposite it true; it continues full steam ahead,” he said. “In Egypt, the army is collapsing under the burden of regular security operations, and this is reflected in the loss of control in the Sinai and the turning of the border with Israel into a terror border, with the possibility that Sinai will fall under the control of an Islamic entity.”

“In Lebanon, Hezbollah is growing stronger within government arms, but it has not lost its desire to harm Israel, and the ties with Turkey aren’t at their best,” Major General Eisenberg added.

Referring to what he characterized as the possibility of a “radical Islamic winter,” Major-General Eisenberg said: “This raises the likelihood of an all-out, total war, with the possibility of weapons of mass destruction being used.”

During his address, the senior IDF official revealed that new, more lethal arms surfaced in the hands of Gaza terror groups during the latest round of fighting in the area. As result of the disturbing development, Israeli civilians were instructed to adopt greater precautions, he said.

Needless to say, I believe the Republicans will make this a wedge issue during the campaign. They are now, to a limited extent. But, I expect to see more of that, after the primaries. Because to many, who are Jewish; and those of us who are supporters of Israel. Obama’s attitude is basically, “I don’t give a shit” when it comes to Israel and the Jews.  For the most part, the Republicans own this issue; the notable exception being Ron Paul. Which is all you need to know about the man.

 

Special Comment: In Defense of Michelle Malkin

I know she would not want to hear it from me. As I have criticized her, when I thought she was wrong. But I have also praised her and even defended her, when I thought it was the right thing to do.

But the fact is, that Michelle Malkin is absolutely right for bringing to light Rick Parry’s record in Texas as Governor. Further more, she is absolutely right for shining the light on Orin Hatch’s record as a Conservative.

The truth is folks, after the big government Conservatism of the George W. Bush-era, which I utterly despised; it is refreshing to see that the Republican Party has, with the help of the Tea Party movement — became a party of fiscal, defensive and social restraint again.  One of my biggest complaints is that the Republican Party, during the Bush-era was all too eager to embrace the horrid doctrine of Wilsonian foreign policy. Which anyone with any kind of a brain, knows is a disastrous doctrine to adhere; when it comes to Wilsonian Foreign policy, I am not the only one who feels this way; it now seems that other bloggers are now speaking against it as well.

There is also this new wave of anti-establishment vitriol and criticism among the grassroots and Conservative Blogosphere.  I too, find this is a very refreshing change of pace.  There is a simple reasoning behind all of this: the Tea Party, the Anti-Establishment mentality and so forth.  The reason it exists is that for far too long, Republicans acted, spent, and porked — just like the Democrats.  Because of this, people in the Republican Party grassroots became fed up with it all.  This was, in a way, the beginnings of the Tea Party movement.  True, it was Glenn Beck’s idea, true; Rick Santelli was the one who sounded the call.  However, it was the American people who said, “NO MORE BUSINESS AS USUAL!” and began to organize the movement.

As for Michelle Malkin, I believe that her efforts to expose the people who wish to cash in on this Tea Party movement are critical to the reformation of the Government in Washington D.C.  Some of these politicians think that the common people are idiots; this is why we need people like Michelle Malkin to expose the underhanded attempts to deceive the Conservative voters into believing that they are on board with the reformers in the Conservative movement.  Further, there are some, in the Conservative grassroots, who have dreadfully short memories; this is why Michelle Malkin’s work is so very much important to the movement as a whole.

For the record and for what it is really worth; Michelle Malkin went after Bush’s Administration and cabinet as well as Obama’s and the current crop running for the G.O.P.  — That is why I respect the woman.  Because she has always said, you cannot criticize the other side, if you are not willing to drain the swamp in your party — which is so true.

Remember folks, we are at an imperative time in our Nation’s history.  We, as Conservative Americans and as those who vote Republican must be keenly aware of what we are doing here in the next couple of months.  For too long, the American Government has been at the mercy of those who did not give two thoughts to pissing our Children’s futures away — in the Democratic Party and the Republican Party.  We have to select a Candidate this time, which will not only beat Obama; but will uphold the fiscal values that is supposed to make up the Republican Party.  Because the core word of the Republican Party is “Conservative” which comes from the word “Conserve” which means to restrain.  That is what the Republican Party and this Nation needs to return —- the restraint of our fiscal, defense and social matters.

Because of this: we cannot afford to choose someone, who has some sort of Texas swagger, nor can we afford to choose some simple-minded old fool, who is lost in the world of extreme isolationism.  We must be a fully informed electorate.  This is why I defend Michelle Malkin and her quest to out those, who might not be a good choice for President of the United States in the Republican Party.

So, to Michelle: Keep up the good work.  I will be reading, and I will keep in mind everything that I read on your site and at your former site, HotAir.com; when I vote in the upcoming primary here in Michigan and in general election in 2012.

Signed,

No, Ron Paul is NOT the one!

I am looking at this posting over at HotAir.com.

I cannot comment over there, because I do not have access.

I did not even watch that idiotic video, nor do I want to.

No, Ron Paul is not the “One” nor will he ever be!

Why?

Because of crap like this!

This comes via Newsone.com:

There has been controversy over Ron Paul’s ties to racism for some time now. Many people have pointed to Ron Paul’s Newsletters as proof of his racism. Paul has previously admitted to  writing the newsletters and defended the statements in 1996, then blamed them on an unnamed ghostwriter in 2001 and then denied any knowledge of them in 2008. He has given no explanation, for how the racism entered his newsletter. If we are to take Paul at his word, he is guilty of at least promoting racism on a large scale. Paul earned almost a million dollars a year from the racist, conspiracy theorist newsletters. Here are some excerpts that I’ve found.

ron paul needlin

In this story Ron Paul writes about “needlin” and blames packs of young black girls for spreading AIDS to white women. I could find no evidence of this “epidemic” and the article seems to have no point other than to make white people scared of Black people.

Ron Paul MLK

In this piece he criticizes Martin Luther King as a pro-communist philanderer and says the MLK holiday is “Hate Whitey Day.” This is in great contrast to 2008 when he told Wolf Blitzer that Martin Luther King was one of his heroes. When activists suggested naming a city after Martin Luther King Paul suggested other names such as “Welfaria,” “Zooville,” “Rapetown,” “Dirtburg,” and “Lazyopolis” He would continue:

ron paul mlk 2

In another piece he blamed Black people for the riots that happened in Chicago in 1992 after the Bulls won the NBA Championship

basket ball riots

Paul here is using false information to attack African Americans. The Washington Post reported that 1000 people were arrested but did not indicate their race. The riot, like most sports riots was multi-racial, including Blacks, white and Latinos, yet Paul used the incident to demonize African Americans. The Washington Post also reported that two officers suffered minor gunshot wounds and that 95 were injured in total, but the way Paul phrased it, it would seem most of the 95 officers injured were shot.

ron paul blast em

In this article Paul uses the “carjacking” epidemic to put fear into white people. He advises them to carry guns and shoot “carjackers” illegally and then dispose of their weapons. He also refers Black people as “animals” and directly refers to his home town of Lake Jackson, Texas.

The newsletters also contained the quotes:

opinion polls consistently show only about 5% of blacks have sensible political opinions

if you have ever been robbed by a black teen-aged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be,

This is only the first skirmish in the race war of the 1990s

Here are some of the newsletters I could find. They also contain a good deal of homophobic and Black Helicopter, New World Order conspiracy theories and warnings of upcoming in “race wars.”

No, I did not watch that stupid Republican debate

No, I did not watch the debate; mainly because I was in the bed at 9:00opm. I have been doing that as of late; in bed by 9 and will sleep soundly till about midnight or so, then get up, take a leak and back to bed till 4 in the morning. It is indeed an old man’s schedule and I am pushing 40 now, so I might as well play the part.   In fact, it is 4:29a.m. now as I file this blog posting. I will set this one to go live at 8:00a.m.

From what I can understand and have been able to read; the debate was quite lively. HotAir has good coverage, as does The Other McCain, with a blow by blow of the Debate itself.  Oh yeah,  Romney the Mormon Moron screamed at some liberal heckler — that must make him a real Republican now! :roll:

If it seems that I am being overly sarcastic and dismissive of the entire debate and straw poll, it is because that I am dismissive and sarcastic regarding the entire affair.  This is because these primary polls and debates are nothing more than partisan fashion shows, to see who is more “Republican-y.” I am an independent “right of center,” as a Blogger and as a person.  I find this entire partisan fashion show to be most sickening.

The truth is my friends that half of those people were lying and the other half were reciting talking points, given to them by some idiot, who never served a damned day in office ever.  In other words, those idiots were telling those people and in the people watching that debate, exactly what they wanted to hear.  I would say the same thing about a Democratic Party Debate too.  I mean, just look at Obama and all the promises he broke while campaigning.

Further, let me say this; Conservatives and Republicans alike made a mistake as they are about to make again, I think.  In 1980, a former Democratic Party politician came out of California, with Midwestern roots.  This man was able to woo all factions of the Republican Party and of the Conservative movement into one big tent.  He made overtures and nuanced promises to the Conservative Christian World, the libertarian section and defense hawks.  He ended up fulfilling the defense promises and did attempt to rein in spending as well.  However, this same man, who made huge overtures to the Conservative Christian World, proceeded to make it to the White House, said, “Thanks for your support, now go away,” and proceeded to fulfill his own personal political agenda.  That man was President Ronald Reagan.  We still have abortion, we still do not have Prayer in schools, and the morality in this Country is worse now, than it was when Ronald Reagan was President.

One would think that the Conservative movement, especially the Conservative Christians would have learned by now that the Republican Party is not a party to be trusted.  Especially seeing that we are better informed and better educated people, due to the rise of the internet and online information.  It is as the old saying goes, “Those who do not learn from their mistakes —- are doomed to repeat them.”

I just do truly hope and pray; that the Republican Party picks a true Conservative and no some imperialist.  God knows, we have had eight good years of big spending and imperialism in this Country, which is why we are, where we are at now in this Country.  I hope that the Republican Party has learned its lesson, that wars cost money; and when a nation is barrowing more than its own GDP, something is terribly wrong.  Please, Lord; do not allow this Republican Party to make that same tragic and fatal mistake again.  Please, No more Republicans who are drunk on spending and wars.  We simply cannot afford that again — not this time — not ever again.

 

Nasty Antisemitism on the right

I figure if I am going to point out the bigotry on the left; I may as well point out the bigotry on the right as well.

Spotted over at the The American Conservative’s blog @TAC: (no direct link for these bozo’s either)

Americans who really like Israel and everything that pertains to it are certainly free to express their views, but there is something unseemly and even grotesque about the continuous promotion of foreign and ethnic group interests ahead of those of the United States and other American citizens. AIPAC is a lobby dedicated to maintaining uncritical US government support for a foreign country and it can be argued that Washington entered into at least one foreign war because of it.  The congressmen who accept the junkets should be asking themselves whose interests they are really serving.  At a time when both Democrats and Republicans are openly discussing cutting medical benefits for ordinary Americans, it is also difficult to understand what twisted thinking supports allocating additional taxpayer provided special medical benefits to some medicare recipients based on events that took place thousands of miles away from the US more than sixty-six years ago.

The only people that would write something like that would be Neo-Nazi antisemitic twits; and that is what the American Conservative is, an Antisemitic Paleo-Conservative Magazine.

Plus, check out this little article here, which slams “Neo-Cons.”

For those who do not know this, during the Bush era; the word “Neo-Con” is a word that got bandied around by the Anti-War crowd, many well-meaning Conservatives who supported Bush and Bush himself was branded a “Neo-Con.” If I have ever used it here on this Blog; it was meant to convey the term “Wilsonian” which refers to those who support Wilsonian Foreign Policy. What happened was, is that the Anti-War Left and the Anti-War right used it as well. The Anti-War Left used it to describe Bush and Co and anyone that supported them. The Anti-War Right; meaning the libertarians and Paleo-Conservatives —– meant it as a code word for Jews and those who supported Israel. Now to be fair, there are some on the Anti-War right, who I know for a fact simply mean it as a moniker for those who support Wilsonian Foreign Policy.  However, there are those who do use it as a Antisemitic code word..

They like to refer to themselves as “Radical Traditionalists.” I like to refer to what they believe in as  “Educated or very highbrow Racism and Antisemitism.” A perfect example of them, can be found here.  Only difference between this group and your average robe and hood wearing Klansman — is the IQ of the people involved.

Fortunately,  These groups are on the fringe of the Conservative movement, they not and should be considered to be what I believe to be mainstream Conservatism. However, it does alarm me that some of the editors from the American Conservative, have been seen recently appearing on Fox News Channel programs as of late. I believe that Jews and Conservatives should be complaining to Fox News about this and get those vile antisemitic and racist bastards off of Fox News.

Video: This is why we must not fail in the war on terrorism!

These are the Taliban and the men lined up are Pakistani Policemen: (Warning! Graphic Video!)

The Story via ABC NEWS:

In a new video which recently surfaced online, the Taliban appears to brutally and systematically execute 16 unarmed Pakistani policemen in what the terror group called a revenge killing.

The video of the massacre, which reportedly took place in early June, was posted online last week and confirmed by the Pakistani army today. It shows the policemen — who are not in uniform — standing in a line before a Taliban member who appears to be lecturing them. The man, who appears to act as the militants’ commander, accuses the policemen of executing six children in a previous operation and claims their imminent deaths are revenge, according to a summary posted with the video.

Several Taliban members then open fire on the group until all the policemen have fallen. A wailing cry is heard in the background after the initial volley. After reloading, a single fighter walks over each body and shoots them once more in the head.

But yet, President Barack Obama wants to try and negotiate with these monsters.

My friends, you do not negotiate with criminals and cold blooded killers; these people hate Liberty and Freedom. They hate Israel and Jews; kind of like the liberal left and some of the Paleo-Conservative and libertarian right.  They are not rational, sane, human beings — they are cold blooded killers. We did not negotiate with Charles Manson and his cult — so why the hell would we negotiate with people like this?

My friends, consider this hallow warning from someone who sat through hours of footage on 9/11 and almost ended up in the psych ward because of it:

IF WE DO NOT SUCCEED ON THE WAR ON TERRORISM, THIS COULD BE A SCENE IN AMERICA VERY SOON!

Dismiss me as an alarmist if you wish; I could not care less. But this is coming to America, if we fall down on the war on terrorism!

America must be protected; Israel must be protected, Liberty and Freedom are at stake! Radical Islam is a threat! Do not believe the lie of the Liberal-controlled, financed, and organized media — which is supplanted by the Government! The liberal media is in bed with the radical and no-so-radical Muslims!

Remember 9/11, Remember the Pentagon, Remember Flight 93 —– Remember America.

Remember this Video and Blog Posting come November 2012.

We need a President who will stand tall in the face of these bastards and not blink. Bush did it; and paid for it, with his Presidency — but he did not waver for a second. Mistakes were made, that is very true. However, in the end, we won in Iraq and we can win here too. We just have to not give up.

lan astaslem --- I will not surrender --I will not submit.

This is not a game, this is not fake; Ron Paul and his racist, Anti-Semitic friends, who hate Israel and everything related to it are the ENEMY! They must be kept out of the White House, at all costs! They are friends with these people!  Consider me a soldier in that battle too.

In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and of in the Name of the Lord GOD Jehovah — Master and Saviour of this World and KING of Kings and LORD of Lords of this World and in the great, wonderful, world to come:

I WILL NEVER SURRENDER!  

 

A Reminder: Go Gold

Just a follow up to yesterday’s posting; it would seem that this would be a good time to invest in gold, even if you cannot afford the expensive stuff, a small investment in the cheaper stuff would be smart.

As you know I am an affiliate for GoldSilver.com  and they offer some great coins and bullion for those who wish to invest in that sort of the thing.

GoldSilver.com offers

You can also check out their Silver Products Here

Want more proof? Check out this video from Russian TV:

I think it is time to invest in Gold. I mean, when the fed chairman says he does not believe that Gold is money; something is horribly wrong.

Time for some clarity

I feel the need to write about something, which has been bugging me for a while now. I had always known that there was a certain subset of the Conservative movement, which was Anti-Semitic and racist. However, I felt that I could disagree with those people and still call myself a Paleo-Conservative. Indeed, I do very much highly disagree with those who believe in exporting Democracy to other Countries. However, something that occurred tonight forced me to confront the fact that the Anti-War, Paleo-Conservative/libertarian crowd was a bit more hateful than I thought.

First off, let me say this; indeed, I am skeptical of some of the goings on in Israel. Indeed, I am very critical of those who use their racial or ethnic background to get special treatment in this Country. However, my criticisms do not equate to the general hatred of Jews, neither does that equate to a hatred of Israel. Nor does it equate to the feeling that Israel does not have the right to exist as a Nation or that Israel should be destroyed. That my friend is unabashed hatred and that is something that I will not be a part of, at all.

As you all know, that read this blog; I am a user of the social media service called twitter. Tonight, I saw something on twitter that made me very angry. It appears that a particular online publication, which hails itself as a “libertarian” one; has a twitter account. I am referring to AntiWar.com. It appears that this site has a twitter account and on it, a link was posted to a story, in which a Palestinian girl was killed by Israeli border guards.

It was not so much the story that was posted, that I had such a problem with; it was the comment left, when the tweet was sent, it read:

Israeli police will not face trial over death of Palestinian girl – hey it’s not like she’s Jewish or something. feh. http://ind.pn/pjh8Mt

My friends, this is something that I just cannot and will not overlook. This anti-Semitic stereotype is so often bandied about regarding the Jews and Israel. This is nothing more, than leftist hatred; something that I cannot and will not support, ever.

So, as of today, the following changes are being made to this blog. I am, as of now, removing the label of Paleo-Conservative/libertarian/Classic Liberal from this blog. If that is what those two groups, being libertarian and Paleo-Conservative are truly about – I am done with them for good. I am a “right of center” that is what I always called myself. I simply put labels on it, so people could understand where it is that I come from. However, I feel that ignoring this and leaving the labels on the blog fosters the idea that I am someone supports that sort of hatred.

Further, I have removed the section on this blog, which brings the argument that “Racism” was the invention of a group of Marxist Jews from Germany that fled to America. While that might be true —- unfortunately, there are people out there, who use that argument to hide behind, so that they can continue to spew hatred towards Jews and Blacks —– I am not one of those people.

Further, I am going to find and display on my blog, in an obvious spot, a banner that declares that I STAND WITH ISRAEL —- as a Christian, I lay claim to that land, and one day, during the millennial reign of Christ, I will dwell in that land and judge Angels. That is what my Bible tells me.

This, admittedly, is a new place for me; and I feel a bit weird in it. However, when one stands for what he feels is morally right, sometimes, it has to be uncomfortable. Further, if those who disagree with this move of mine want to call me a neo-con, Jew Lover, Bush lover or warmonger — fine, let them. They are fools and one fine day, they will discover just how wrong they truly are.

It feels so good to be doing, what I feel is morally right.

The End of an Era: Representative Ron Paul will not seek another term in 2012

The news comes from Ron Paul’s local hometown paper:

LAKE JACKSON — After serving almost 24 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressman Ron Paul told The Facts exclusively this morning he will not be seeking another term for the District 14 seat.

Paul, 75, will instead focus on his quest for the presidency in 2012.

“I felt it was better that I concentrate on one election,” Paul said. “It’s about that time when I should change tactics.”

His announcement will give enough time for anyone with aspirations for his seat to think about running, he said. Paul didn’t want to wait for filing in the 2012 primary to let people know he wasn’t seeking reelection.

“I didn’t want to hold off until in December,” he said. “I thought it shouldn’t be any later than now.”

Paul has served 12 terms in Congress. District 14 encompasses a 10-county area along the Gulf Coast.

“The people in the area have supported me for many years,” he said.

Ed Morrissey over at HotAir.com, who is not a Ron Paul fan at all; offers some fact correction and some straight talk:

The Facts needs to do The Math.  Paul first won election to Congress in a 1976 special election, lost later that year, and then won again in 1978.  He’s served parts of 18 terms in the House, which adds up in this case to a little over 34 years when his current term expires.

Paul either really wants to retire or really thinks that he’s on the cusp of a major upset in the GOP primary.  I’ll assume that he has a somewhat realistic view of his prospects in this primary, where he might wind up as the runner-up among Texans if Rick Perry jumps into the race.  He’ll be 76 years old next month, and with his son in the Senate, Paul may feel comfortable with retirement after one last national campaign that puts his somewhat erratic libertarianism on the GOP presidential agenda for a second straight cycle.  If he’s not taking a realistic view of his chances, then perhaps he believes that the only thing that held him back from besting John McCain, Mitt Romney, and Mike Huckabee in any 2008 primary was his simultaneous campaign for re-election.  If so, then he really needs this retirement.

Of course, Paul could change his mind before the end of the year, but after this kind of announcement, it would be hard to sell even to the adoring voters in his district.  Looks like the end of the road for the man best known for contrarian votes on meaningless resolutions and for railing against government spending while garnering pork for his constituents.

I agree with the above, especially the underlined part.  When I discovered that little tidbit of information, that was when I basically dropped my support of Ron Paul. Besides all of that; The Ron Paul cult did the same thing as the Barack Obama cult did, made the man into something he was not.  When Ron Paul saw that he could not win the Presidency in 2008 and decided to give his support to the rest of the 2008 independent candidates, some of the Ron Paul cult almost went into meltdown. Some of them even turned on him and accused him of being a puppet for the Illuminati or something. It was a strange thing to watch.

Not only this, point-blank; the man is just not electable, period, end of story. Heck, even his supporters openly admit that, “It is not about winning, it is about spreading the message.” To which I ask, what is the purpose of spending all that money, time and effort into a person, who really does not give a hoot if he is elected or not? That my friends, is the epitome of stupid. Not to mention that he has associations and has taken money from people, who are, in my humble opinion, just straight up evil.

As I have said before, I respect Ron Paul on his fiscal policy; but his foreign policy; in this day and age of external threats to our Nation —- irregardless of what caused them — the fact is that they are there, and Ron Paul’s foreign policy is just not realistic. You cannot offer flowers and rainbows to people who want to kill you. It is just that damn simple. The only thing that terrorists and evil people, like some of Ron Paul’s friends understand; is the end of a gun — and we should keep that in mind, when voting for our next President.

Other than that, I wish Ron Paul a very happy retirement and I thank him for his service to his Country. I also thank him for returning his Congressional seat back to the adults in politics. :D

Jobs report bleak, Democrats still clueless as ever

Now I see why Rick Santelli is ranting and raving!

First of all, here is the lovely report via the NYT:

For the second month in a row, employers added a dismally small number of jobs, showing that the United States economy is barely creaking along despite being two years into the official recovery.

With all levels of government laying off workers, the Labor Department reported that employers eked out just 18,000 new nonfarm payroll jobs in June. The already low number of jobs created in May was also revised downward to just 25,000, less than half what was originally reported last month.

Even as the government’s survey of employers showed that they were adding an anemic number of jobs, a survey of households showed that more people were out of work, causing the unemployment rate to rise to 9.2 percent.

Economists were stunned since they had been expecting June to show stronger job creation as oil prices eased and supply disruptions receded in the aftermath of the Japanese tsunami and earthquake. Instead, the government’s monthly snapshot of the labor market showed that several sectors, including construction, finance and temporary services, actually shed workers. At the same time, leading indicators like wages and the length of the average workweek, which tend to grow before employers begin adding more jobs, actually contracted.

“Even the wild-eyed optimists out there have nothing to grasp onto in this report except to say, ‘Ah, this too shall pass,’ ” said Joshua Shapiro, chief United States economist at MFR Inc.

Meanwhile the stupidity continues on the left. A perfect example is found over at The Hill:

President Obama’s senior political adviser David Plouffe said Wednesday that people won’t vote in 2012 based on the unemployment rate.

Plouffe should probably hope that’s the case, since dismal job figures aren’t expected to get any better for Obama and the economy on Friday.

Most economists expect a report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to show that the nation added about 100,000 jobs in June. That’s not enough to keep up with population growth, let alone lower the unemployment rate or make a dent in the 9 million jobs lost during the so called Great Recession.

[UPDATED: The jobs report released on Friday showed the economy added only 18,000 jobs, much less than anticipated. The unemployment rate creeped up to 9.2 percent.]

It’s looking more and more like Obama will have to do something no president has done since Franklin Roosevelt: Win reelection with unemployment around 8 percent.

I have a sinking feeling that Plouffe is making a seriously stupid miscalculation ; and one that the Republican Party is going to take full advantage of, come November 2012.

The stupidity continues over at the NYT, again with the stupidest Economist ever to be allowed to write for a paper:

Ugh. That was a seriously ugly jobs report. Almost no job creation, with slow private-sector growth offset by falling public-sector employment; a falling employment-population ratio; and (I don’t know how many people have picked this up), an actual decline in wages, albeit a small one.

Let me emphasize that last point. My bottom line on the inflation-deflation issue has always been to look at wages; you can’t have a wage-price spiral if wages ain’t spiraling. And they aren’t, to say the least.

It’s important to realize, by the way, that stagnant wages are NOT good for recovery; all they do is ensure that the burden of debt relative to income remains high, keeping demand and employment down.

The situation cries out for aggressively expansionary monetary and fiscal policy. Instead, however, all the political push is in the opposite direction.

The underlined part and the part above it; is where the stupidity really kicks in here. That stupidity above, is why this damned Nation is in the place that it is now. Because of stupid people like Krugman. These idiots, in a sane World, would be tossed out of this Country for causing one of the most horrible economic collapses in this Nation, since the great depression, which caused many Americans; Conservative and Liberal, to lose money that they rightly earned or invested in and profited from.

This is not to say that the Republican was not to blame; they too stood by and did nothing and for that they paid a price during the 2006 and 2008 election cycles. However, America was not fooled the Democrats proceeded to make some of, if not more, of the same mistakes that the Republican Party made, while in power. For this, they paid in 2010 and will pay again in 2012.

Further more, it was the DEMOCRATS, not the Republicans, who sought to game the housing market, with the Community Reinvestment act of 1973. Of which the Democrats added the sub-prime cause, which caused the Housing Market to become unstable; which essentially caused the markets to collapse. Yes, regulation was ripped out; but it was the adding of the sub-prime clause that caused the major problems that set the housing market up for a horrible downfall. I know, I watched it all happen here, in real-time, while blogging it all.

In fairness, I will say this; because I am not an overly partisan blogger. It also was the Neo-Conservatives, with their one war, that was totally unjustified in their idiotic visions of a Democratic middle east and the quagmire that it created, not to mention the millions spent and the lives lost; that also created this mess as well. If we would have fought the Afghanistan properly and not like we did Iraq; the war would have been much shorter and would have cost us much less money.

Video: My reaction to the CNN Republican Debate

I was not going to post this; but I changed my mind. Here’s my reaction to the debates:

Again, overall, no clear winner. But a big loser, as far as I concerned.

I will say this; if Sarah Palin is going to get into this race, now is the time to do it. But I doubt she will.

One down, many more to go: Top al Qaeda leader Ilyas Kashmiri killed in US Predator strike

Good, just darned good!

 

Handsome rag-headed Devil, isn't he?

The US has killed Ilyas Kashmiri, one of al Qaeda’s most dangerous military commanders and strategists, in a Predator airstrike yesterday in South Waziristan.

Kashmiri is said to be one of nine members of the al Qaeda-linked Harkat-ul Jihad Islami, or HUJI, who were killed in yesterday’s Predator airstrike that leveled a compound in the Wana area of South Waziristan.

A Harkat-ul Jihad Islami spokesman named Abu Hanzla Kashir told Dawn that Kashmiri was killed in the attack. Kashir also threatened to attack the US to avenge Kashmiri’s death.

“We confirm that our Amir (leader) and commander in chief, Mohammad Ilyas Kashmiri, along with other companions, was martyred in an American drone strike on June 3, 2011, at 11:15 pm,” Kashir told the Pakistani news channel, according to The Telegraph.

One down and a bunch more to go. I cannot wait till they ALL are dead. Then we can get on with life. Until then, we fight on….

I wonder if that fool Ron Paul will say this man’s killing was unjustified also?

Living proof that Adam Kokesh/Ron Paul Supporters are unhinged leftists in disguise

As you all know, I have been writing and talking about Adam Kokesh, the moron who got arrested at the Jefferson Memorial for basically being a tool. I have also documented and written about the fact that the man is a anti-war, Ron Paul supporting loon, who was dishonorably discharged from the Military for his loony activities.

Well, it appears that I have hit a nerve with the anti-war, Ron Paul supporting loon crowd.

These are ALL of the comments that I have received over the last few days. Some are just stupid nonsense written by loons who are, for the most part, out of touch with reality. Some, on the other hand are just straight up vile. So, consider this your official content warning.

Just a word of note, I am presenting this, IP addresses and all. If you happen to spot your IP address in these; don’t e-mail me asking me to remove it. Because I will not. The way I see it, if you are big enough to come to my blog and leave stupid comments like these, then you should be big enough to deal with your IP being broadcast.

With that, let’s start shall we?

Read the first amendment. It’s as simple as that. How do you define dancing? What if I walked in there and stretched and yawned? What if I stretched my arms up and took two steps to the side? What if I stretched my arms up, took two steps to the side and then did a 180 degree turn followed by a crouch and a head turn to the left, then right, and then a hip pop and a swivel of the hip? At what point did I start DANCING? I was just moving. I’ve seen dancers who use their legs in such a fashion as to walk across a street or through a door. Are they dancing? What if they’re walking with style? These are all things that our government is supposed to PROTECT, and not punish.

Our military is doing nothing but spreading the anti-American sentiment in Iraq. There’s no terrorists there. Just innocent people defending their land. There’s no weapons of  mass destruction. There’s no Bin Laden. Why the hell should we stay in an innocent country and steal their oil and blow up apartment buildings??

Yeah, I agree! Rights are only for people that I like! I don’t think people I don’t like should have any rights at all. And there’s no way anything could ever go wrong if everyone has that take on things.

You know that old saying, “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. ” Well, you know who said that? A Frenchman! And I don’t like French people, so clearly that saying is stupid and it isn’t a principle we should have.

You know a group that has little sympathy with the public? People with neckbeards. So the author shouldn’t be too surprised if no one cares if he is ever beaten and thrown in prison for peaceful behavior.

It doesn’t MATTER if they did it with the INTENT of getting arrested.  They are merely dancing in a public place. Are you freaking insane?! If you think that anyone should be arrested in a public place for dancing, whether you like them or not, or whether you “know” what they’re up to, then you don’t understand the concept of freedom.  You don’t understand the reason for the bill of rights, or the basis for having a WRITTEN CONSTITUTION.  Do you not understand the idea between the concept “better 10 guilty men go free than 1 innocent man suffer injustice?”

Either you believe in these rights, or you do not, PICK ONE.

They need no permit to “protest.”  A man needs no permit to kiss his girlfriend, to dance to himself, to perform any other self-expression which is not inherently harmful.  This was not even inherently disruptive.  I don’t care who this CITIZEN is, he’s entitled to self-expression — and one of the GUARANTEES of our Constitution is that the GOVERNMENT will not take that from him.

His intent is irrelevant.  WHO he may be is also irrelevant.  At this point he is a citizen and the government arrested him (and others) without valid cause.

I served, and I opposed our continuing occupation of Iraq.  The only “asshat” is you, there is no pipe, and I don’t smoke (or resort to inane expressions such as those.)  What you don’t grasp is that the Bill of Rights isn’t just for those that you agree with, that you like, or limited by any other criteria.  It’s a guarantee, a limitation that We The People placed upon our government in the very beginning, to avoid EXACTLY this sort of thing.

Take a hike, Patrick.  What you’re endorsing is not Liberty, nor is it Constitutional.  What you’re endorsing is not ever welcome in this nation.

“The same damned leftist Adam Kokersh that opposed the Iraq War, and is a fiery leftist;”

ROFL! Please tell me this is satire. Opposing the Iraq War doesn’t make someone a leftist. Adam Kokesh is a libertarian and a former Republican congressional candidate.

“who lies about every damned thing under the sun; including his Military career.”

Any Iraq War veteran that disagrees with the Iraq War must be either lying about his service or a traitor! Care to cite any evidence? If not this is just a baseless smear and you should be ashamed.

(For the record, I did. and here too -Pat)

Now it starts getting interesting and vile:

LOL and where is it written in the ULTIMATE LAW OF THE LAND that reading a Patriotic document is illegal? Especially on the very memorial of the one who wrote it??? THAT is socialist, and the people did NOT vote for it nor approve of it.

Yeah seriously. The Jefferson Memorial  is a memorial to the man who wrote the Declaration of Independence, one of the greatest tributes to human liberty ever.

We must protect decorum in such a sanctified place. It is not dignified for people to be dancing, or in other ways acting like liberated people. The best way to pay tribute to Jefferson is for tourists bringing their children there to see police body slamming people. That teaches our children the right lesson on liberty. You are free to behave in the way that certain people like, and if you transgress, you will be violently punished.

Liberty!

If this happened in the Middle East, America would invade “to protect the unarmed civilians and to allow Democracy to flourish”.

Whether or not I like your opinion matters not, for I will die to protect your right to voice it…..

Patrick, you’re losing a lot of supporters over your views on this

Gotta love how someone who claims to be a “born again christian” called somebody a fucking fascist asshole. Oh, and wants someone jailed forever for nothing more than being a public nuisance.

I can’t speak for the others, but I did not come here looking for a fight.  I came here because your site came up my google search.  If you were some socialist retard I would not have bothered even leaving a comment.  But I was completely taken aback that someone who claimed to be conservative and believe in small government cannot see the hypocricy of not supporting the first amendment, regardless of the defendant.  It seems to demonstrate to me, that you are in fact not interested in small government, you are just interested in government that protects YOUR interests.  This would make you no different from any Democrat.  And this is the reason that instead of small government, we have the welfare state^2 (squared): welfare for poor, welfare for the churches, welfare for the corporations, and welfare for the public employees (e.g. police).

from this comments I’ll break the logic down into simple to follow steps. 1st:Gettysburg address not allowed to be read then dancing shouldn’t be allowed either… ok I’ve got it so far…. 2nd  not allowing the reading of the Address is socialist (which I’ll take from you connotation to be bad) and not american.   So from your logic you think it’s anti American to arrest people for dancing at the Jefferson memorial??

I ended up blocking that loons IP address from viewing the site, because of that; leaving me four comments like that is not going to change my mind, nor is it going to endure me to your opinion.

So, there you have it; friends and supporters of Adam Kokesh and Representative Ron Paul; now, is this the sort of people that you would want in YOUR White House?

Michelle Malkin made a book about the unhinged left a while back; I think I know what happened to them all. They took up with Ron Paul.

Unbelievable. Just unbelievable.

 

Video: Guest Voice: Jack Hunter Says “The Patriot Act Is Not Conservative”

Please note: While I have always respected our Military and always will; and I do believe in the Reagan mantra of “Peace through Strength.” I have always and will always questioned the legality the so-called Patriot Act. -Pat

Video:

Transcript Via The American Conservative:

If Americans needed another reminder of why the Democratic Party is absolutely worthless, they got it during last week’s Patriot Act extension debate when Senate Majority leader Harry Reid again behaved exactly like the Bush-era Republicans he once vigorously opposed. In 2005, Reid bragged to fellow Democrats, “We killed the Patriot Act.” Today, Reid says that anyone who opposes the Patriot Act might be responsible for the killing of Americans. Dick Cheney now hears an echo and Americans deserve congressional hearings—as to whether Harry Reid is a sociopath, mere liar, or both.

But while Democrats stand pat for Bush Republicanism, the GOP now debates the extent to which it will remain the party of Dubya. Tea Party favorites like Senators Rand Paul and Mike Lee and Congressmen Ron Paul, Justin Amash, Allen West and others, all voted against the Patriot Act. To varying degrees, each of these GOP representatives questioned the act’s effectiveness and legality. But unfortunately, most Republicans still won’t ask any questions.

The “War on Terror” that defined and preoccupied Republicans during the Bush era brought with it not only massive government growth and debt, but an unprecedented expansion of extra-constitutional state power, symbolized most famously by the Patriot Act. In the name of national security, government officials could begin wiretapping phones, hacking into email accounts, prying into business records and spying on citizens—all without a warrant and at government officials’ own discretion. Defenders say the Patriot Act did what needed to be done after 9/11. Critics say it did away with the 4th amendment.

Let us say both have a point, and that for arguments sake, both Harry Reid and Dick Cheney are correct in arguing that it is sometimes necessary to surrender our liberties for increased security. Is this still true a decade after 9/11? Will it be true two decades after 9/11? How about three? Have the actions of Osama Bin Laden and his fellow terrorists forever altered our Bill of Rights?

Allegedly, the default position for conservatives is to distrust the government and defer to the Constitution. Concerning the Patriot Act, too many conservatives blindly trust the government at the expense of the Constitution. This type of thinking mirrors the logic of the Left, in which the constitutionality of a big government program like Obamacare is considered irrelevant due to the severity of the problem at hand. The liberal healthcare ends justify the unconstitutional means. This characteristic mentality of the Left is exactly how most of the Right approaches the Patriot Act—though it is an outright rejection of what most conservatives of any generation have held most dear.

Think about it. Conservatives get upset about many things on a regular basis—ACORN corruption, NPR funding, demanding that French fries be renamed “Freedom Fries.” At any given time there is always some new and outrageous rightwing distaste of the week.

But most of these controversies are a speck on a gnat’s ass compared to the damage done to the Constitution by the Patriot Act. For genuine constitutional conservatives, something like NPR funding is undoubtedly wrong but ultimately trivial and peripheral—while the protection of the Bill of Rights is crucial and integral. If George Washington or Thomas Jefferson were alive today, are we to believe that they would be more outraged that: A. The federal government helps fund public radio. B. The federal government snoops on citizens without restraint. Those who answered A. truly don’t understand the mindset of the men who founded this country.

A Republican critic of mine once asked me during a radio broadcast “Jack, can you show me where any American has been harmed due to the Patriot Act?” I replied, “Can you show me where any American has been harmed by Wikileaks?” The caller said he couldn’t, but stated that he believed private individuals shouldn’t haven’t access to private government documents. The gentleman was basically saying that whether or not Wikileaks has hurt anyone to date is irrelevant—the whistleblower outfit shouldn’t be trusted with such power to begin with. I argue the same is true of the federal government. So did the Founding Fathers. That’s why they wrote the 4th amendment.

The entire reason we have a written charter like the Constitution is to specify the enumerated powers that define the hard parameters of our federal government. Among those powers is national defense and security. But much of what we call “defense” is anything but. Similarly, a total police state could undoubtedly provide much better security, though few Americans would desire a country so void of liberty. After all, most Americans can barely tolerate the way the federal government handles air travel these days.

When Ronald Reagan said there was nothing closer to eternal life on this earth than a government program he could have easily been describing the Patriot Act. When Barry Goldwater said that “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice” he could have easily been describing the minority of Republicans who now at least question the Patriot Act. When James Madison wrote, “Of all the enemies to public liberty, war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other,” he could have easily been describing our current state of perpetual war that now gives seemingly permanent life to the Patriot Act.

If the “War on Terror” is a perpetual war—as so many politicians readily contend—have we now permanently given up our liberties? If terrorists really do “hate us for our freedoms” is the best method of defeating them to permanently surrender our historic freedoms? And if so, who is really winning the War on Terror? Us or the terrorists?

By the very nature of their philosophy, conservatives are supposed to question their government. And given the very nature of our Constitution, this is precisely how the Founders would expect any true patriot to act.

Jack Hunter began his punditry career in the late 1990’s when a friend and popular alternative rock disc jockey agreed to let Jack air his political views during the afternoon drive on 96 Wave (96.1 WAVF) in Charleston, South Carolina.

Creating the moniker the “Southern Avenger,” which was borrowed from popular 90’s conservative talk radio host Ken “The Black Avenger” Hamblin, Jack assumed an anonymous super hero/ pro-wrestler persona, and entertained FM rock audiences with his antics and conservative political views until his departure from 96 Wave in 2007.

In 2007, Jack began working for WTMA 1250 AM talk radio in Charleston and began writing a column for the Charleston City Paper, that city’s premiere alternative weekly. Jack also began producing his popular video podcasts around this time, and today his You Tube Channel has received over two million views. Today, you can find Jack’s videos and columns as part of “TAC TV” at The American Conservative magazine (www.amconmag.com).

Jack is a frequent guest host for The Mike Church Show on Sirius/XM’s Patriot channel and is a frequent guest on “The Savage Nation” with nationally syndicated talk radio host Michael Savage. His writing has appeared at The American Spectator, Lewrockwell.com, CampaignforLiberty.com and in Young American Revolution, the official magazine of the youth activist organization Young Americans for Liberty, to which he is also a contributing editor. Jack also assisted Sen. Rand Paul with his book The Tea Party Goes to Washington, released by Center Street in February, 2011.

Think Al-Qaeda is done? Think again, they’re in Yemen

In this thread here yesterday, some idiot did a drive by and claimed that Al-Qaeda did not exist. I deleted it, because it sounded so stupid. I wish now that I kept it. Anyhow, here we go:

(CNN) — Yemeni security forces abandoned a key coastal city to Islamic militants, residents of the city told CNN Sunday, while a powerful rebel tribe kept up pressure on the government in the capital.

“The militants are everywhere and we cannot leave our homes,” said a resident of the city of Zinjibar, east of Aden.

“They suddenly arrived and in large numbers. There were no clashes when they arrived on Friday night. We tried to complain to security forces but could not find them,” said the resident, who asked not to be named for security reasons.

By Saturday, “hundreds” of masked militants controlled the main streets of the city, locals said.

Abyan province, where Zinjibar is located, is a hotbed of Islamic militancy in Yemen, a country which has become a key battleground against al Qaeda.

via Islamic militants seize Yemen city, locals say – CNN.com.

I crack up at the libertarians that say, “Al-Qaeda does not exist, it is invention of the U.S. Government!” All the while smoking their dope and waving their silly Ron Paul signs. I got one thing to say about that; tell that to the people living in this city in Yemen okay? Because right now, a whole bunch of people there are scared shitless and are worrying about whether these Islamic fascists will kill them or not.

I will concede one point; President George W. Bush royally screwed up, when trying to fight this war. Bush should have directed ALL of our forces into the Afghan region and fought these bastards until the very last one dropped dead. But, he didn’t. Instead the President, then, listened to his intelligence people; who supposedly had information that Saddam had WMD’s and was giving comfort to the enemy, namely Al-Qaeda. That intelligence came from Germany and one guy named “Curveball,” and the United States and yes, Bush ate it up and off we went. As as result of that, Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and that war in general were left to fester and grow.

Now, as much as I would like to harp on the above and really lay into Bush for that mistake, I cannot. That part of history is over. We cannot continue to lay blame at a man’s feet, who is no longer in office. We cannot go back and change history, what is done, is done. I can however, point out that if Bush had fought this war properly to start with, we would most likely not be in this position now.

Now, we are at the place, that we are; Obama ordered the taking out of Osama Bin Laden; most likely with the assumption that Al-Qaeda would die off. The problem with that is this; OBL was simply a figure-head anymore. The day-to-day stuff was being carried out by others and he was widely disconnected from the “Front Lines” of the operation.  With the exception of the information carried by the carriers, OBL was just a figure-head.

I said all that above to get to this point here; anyone that believes that Al-Qaeda is not still a threat to this great Republic of ours; is a damned fool and is living in some sort of fantasy land. As someone who was almost frozen with fear on 9/11, especially when it was announced that there was plane en route to the White House. I remember that fear, and even though I am not a big fan of Nation Building and occupation; I do realize that the War on terror is a very real thing and we must not allow these bastards to gain any ground at all. As someone who watched those images on 9/11 and proceeding days and was almost driven to suicide over it. I must object to the notion that this war on terror is not winnable. Those bastards inflicted more than just physical destruction on the United States, they inflicted emotional distress on the United States as well; and for that, those fucking bastards must pay and pay dearly. Al-Qaeda and its affiliates MUST BE DESTROYED AT ALL COSTS!

Those who died on 9/11 deserve that justice and those of us, who survived the madness and the images that followed it; DEMAND IT!

If anyone reading this, thinks that because I feel this way, that I am some sort of Jewish Neo-Conservative; then by golly, when it comes to this subject and any subject related to the defense of the Republic of United States of America, I AM A DAMNED NEO-CONSERVATIVE AND ANYONE WHO LOVES THIS COUNTRY SHOULD BE TOO!

That…..is all.
