Our Trojan Horse President….


Obama bows to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia

Trojan Horse (definition):
concealed stratagem: somebody or something that is meant to disrupt, undermine, subvert, or destroy an enemy or rival, especially somebody or something that operates while concealed within an organization.

They say truth is stranger than fiction.

And as Robert Knight at the Washington Times points out, writing a novel about a President whose goal is to undermine the USA could never match the real thing we have in Barack Hussein Obama.

As we begin 2012, it is imperative that we remember the damage that this President has unleashed upon our country.  He must be removed from office….and this is the year we must do it.

Knights article is a great reminder of so many of the appalling things Obama has done in three years….for which much of the media and many Americans have given him a pass…

I was thinking about writing a novel about what might happen if a man who hates America and wants to bring it down is somehow elected president. What would he do?……

…….First, the Trojan Horse president would initiate unprecedented spending, driving the debt up by more than $4 trillion just in the first three years. Much of the money would go into the pockets of political supporters and people who donate heavily to his campaigns…….

……….(He would)  Ship hundreds of taxpayer-purchased firearms to Mexican drug gangs in order to frame law-abiding gun sellers in Texas. When the Fast and Furious weapons are used to kill U.S. and Mexican lawmen, the attorney general will pretend he didn’t know about the program until very recently and is shocked, shocked! The attorney general will claim that critics of this criminally insane policy are motivated by racial animus against him and the president. After all, this worked when anyone questioned why the president’s college and medical records were sealed or why he attended a Marxist minister’s church for 20 years and hung out with known terrorists.

He would appoint Supreme Court justices who believe in a “living Constitution,” which means they can ignore its plain meaning when it interferes with their ideological agenda.

He would stack the National Labor Relations Board with union hacks who would do unspeakable things such as order a major company (Boeing) not to open a new factory in a right-to-work state (South Carolina) in the middle of the worst recession since the Great Depression. If he got away with that, he would go ahead and strengthen a crony socialist system reminiscent of Mussolini’s Italy or Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela that subsidizes “winners” such as Solyndra.

Finally, throughout his tenure, he would employ the Marxist rhetoric of class warfare, blame “the wealthy” and make more Americans dependent on government checks. He would sucker Republican leaders into secret meetings and emerge to accuse them of wanting to raise taxes on all but the rich.

Did Hollywood “genius” Morgan Freeman see the Florida straw poll?

Just wondering…did Morgan Freeman, the Hollywood Whiz Kid*, happen to take a look at the Florida Straw Poll on Saturday?

Herman Cain, a black man, won that straw poll largely from the support of the Tea Party.

Morgan Freeman said on CNN last week that members of the Tea Party are racists willing to do  whatever they can to “get this black man” (Obama) out of the White House.

The only racist I see is Morgan Freeman…..

Herman Cain responds:

“Most of the people that are criticizing the Tea Partiers about having a racist  element, they have never been to a Tea Party………Name calling is something that is going to continue in this because they don’t  know how to stop this movement and this movement is making a big difference in  politics.”

Amen!  Freeman is right about one thing….the Tea Party wants the President out of the White House.

Not because of his race, but rather based on:

So, Mr. Freeman, race is not the issue as proven in Florida….but for some reason it is an issue with you and many like you.

Why don’t you attend a Tea Party (as Herman Cain suggests) before spreading your nastiness?…and then….well….

Get. Over. It.

*sarcasm

Funny of the Day: Archie Bunker is not happy with Obama


From Moonbattery:

After all these years, Archie Bunker still makes more sense than the moonbats who created him.

 

Oh…Awwwrrchie! That’s funny!

Thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the shooting in Tucson


With regard to the deplorable shooting on Saturday of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the deaths of 5 others and injuries to many more…..

My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the families and victims.  What a difficult turn of events for them to be struggling and dealing with.  God Bless them all. 

And I wish a non-eventful and speedy recovery to Congresswoman Giffords and the others who are injured — whether physically or mentally or both.  God Bless.

Why the Left fears Sarah (and who can possibly relate to her?)


I just read an article at American Thinker about why the Left fears Sarah Palin…..and they do.

Sarah Palin has been persecuted by the Obama-loving media, the so-called print media, and left-wing attack groups since her arrival on the national stage last year.

From American Thinker, excerpts (my emphasis):

Have you ever seen so much hatred for, and vitriolic criticism of, someone who had only a brief stint on the national political stage? More than a year after the presidential election in which Sarah Palin, as the GOP nominee for Vice-President, campaigned for about three months, she is still being pilloried by the left-wing loons as though she had been elected and were actively engaged in dismantling the liberal establishment. Not a day goes by in which we don’t hear or read vicious attacks on a woman who represents the wholesome conservative values of Middle America — values that have been insidiously and incrementally eroded during the last few decades.

….What this country needs is a strong conservative leader with the courage of her convictions. Sensing those qualities in Sarah Palin, the liberal left is becoming frantic because they can’t seem to halt her popularity. The reason they’re panicking is because they’re afraid of her connection with regular folks who work for a living, pay their taxes, attend a religious worship service regularly, and believe that our country has lost the moral fiber that once united us.

……I could illustrate hundreds of other examples of rampant corruption by people in elective office. Pointing to government decay is the job of the free press. But are they hounding any of the power-hungry scoundrels that masquerade as symbols of decency and honor? No, they’re engaged in a continuous merciless attack on a woman who has led the way in the fight against the very corruption being overlooked by those who have become blinded by ideology.

Sarah Palin is a threat because she symbolizes decency in a country taken hostage by moral degenerates. If she isn’t stopped, this country might end up reclaiming some of the values that made us the envy of the world.

This is exactly what is happening in the attempts to bring Sarah Palin down.  

Frankly, I really don’t know if she could win the Presidency or if that is her desire.  What I do know is that her brand of conservatism and love of America is a threat to those who view America as evil and who apologize for America.  And I believe that she has a perspective unlike just about anyone else on the national stage right now. 

Sarah Palin embodies the experiences of a wide cross-section of Americans.  She is the exact opposite in her beliefs and experiences than what the liberals and media elites believe is “correct” in a popular politician.    She is pro-life, pro-marriage, pro-American, pro-Capitalist, pro-free market, pro-family, pro-national security, pro-Constitution, and a devout, unapologetic Christian.    And did I say she is wildly popular?  Her book*, Going Rogue, was an unprecedented best seller before it hit the shelves this week. 

Thus, you see the Left’s urgency in attempting to bring Sarah Palin down politically and personally.

My own personal opinion on her popularity and also the source of the vitriol from the Left is that Sarah Palin can relate to different aspects of many American lives…and vice versa. 

This is in stark contrast to many of the “professional politicians” leading our country who have attended elite schools, have made leaching from the government their life’s career, and are smothered in the snobbery of thinking they know better than everyday Americans.

Sarah Palin hits a chord with many different groups and types of Americans, thus the huge interest in her.  Many politicians and those in the public eye can voice opinions on issues such as conservation, outdoor sports, hunting, guns, abortion, motherhood, war, babies, special needs children, and more.  But few of those politicians and figures have ever truly experienced or embodied the actual values they espouse in those areas.  Or, at least, many don’t have the list of experiences in those areas that Sarah Palin possesses. 

What experiences and with whom does she seem to so naturally connect?

Average ordinary Americans – Sarah Palin wasn’t born with a silver spoon, she attended a “regular” college in Idaho, she married her high school sweetheart.  She wears a $35 wedding band. She eloped with Todd at the age of 23.  She grew up in the same manner as the vast majority of Americans  in a middle-income household with two parents who love her and taught her many of life’s lessons.  She didn’t attend Harvard or Yale, she didn’t need “affirmative action” to take the place of real credentials, and she didn’t set out to be a career politician.  She’s not a lawyer and she doesn’t have labor unions in her back pocket (or the other way around.)

Hunters, Outdoorsmen (and women), and True Conservationists –   Sarah Palin learned to hunt and respect the land she lived upon from a young age.  Where she was raised in the state of Alaska, many people engage in hunting and live with a respect for the balance between wildlife, land, resources, and human needs.   Like many older and rural Americans, Sarah Palin understood and has lived this balance long before the “green religion” was thrust upon us.  She is the complete opposite of the fat, meat-eating, jet-flying, carbon generating, false “green” prophet, hypocritical Al Gore. 

Gun Owners – Palin is an advocate of gun ownership.  She believes in, defends and exerts her Second Amendment rights.  She actually owns firearms…and she knows how to use them!  (Wonder how many of the anti-gun lobbyists and politicians have actually owned a gun, much less shot one?)

Mothers – Sarah Palin is the mother of five children.   Mothers, stay-at-home mothers, mothers of special-needs children, single mothers….all have a role model in Sarah Palin.  Mothers who’ve sent their sons off to war have a role model in Sarah Palin.   Mothers with teenage daughters can relate to Sarah Palin (especially those with daughters who have found themselves as unwed mothers at an early age).    Mothers relate to other mothers…especially those who have: remained married to the father (Todd), taken the responsibility for raising their own children, made parental mistakes, forgiven their children’s mistakes, and faced the ups and downs of parenthood with grace.  She has a happy, traditional family.  Unbeknownst to many liberals, that still resonates in America.

Men – Let’s face it.  Even aside from Palin’s experience, knowledge and “essence of ordinary” — she’s is considered hot!  (Of course, unfortunately, that can also work against her professionally)

Women – Educated and career-oriented women have a role model in Sarah Palin.   Young women can see the potential in themselves by studying the life and career of Sarah Palin.   Older women can respect the traditional life and values of Sarah Palin.   Self-made women can relate to and admire Sarah Palin since she went from  housewife to holding local office, to mayor, to governor to VP  of the USA candidate.  Doesn’t get much more “self-made” than that.

Pro-lifers – Sarah Palin, while faced with an unexpected pregnancy AND impending birth of a Down Syndrome baby, chose to keep the life that God created.  It probably wasn’t much of a “choice” since she believes all life is sacred, but it resonates BIG with those in America who also believe all life is sacred.    Sarah Palin also encouraged and supported her own unwed, teenage daughter to keep her child when she discovered the teenage pregnancy.

Parents of Special Needs children – Sarah and Todd Palin are the poster parents for embracing the love and special place that these children bring to a family.  These children are not mistakes and parents of these children know it experience God’s little blessing everyday.  These children bring many lessons, much love, patience, and enjoyment to the families for which they belong.   Parents of special needs children have a connection and bond that other parents do not.  And Sarah Palin has stated that one of her passions is elevating the understanding of and the place for these children in our world.

Americans with loved-ones in the military and fighting in the War on Terror – Sarah’s own son just returned earlier this year from a one-year tour in Iraq.  Sarah Palin proudly displays a blue star mother flag and lapel pin.  Patriotic, proud Americans with loved ones in the military know that Sarah Palin understands their plight like only those who’ve sent loved ones to the War Zone can.  Not only that, Sarah Palin is unabashed in your support and love for those who have chosen to serve our country….and it is sincere. 

The list is long and the areas I’ve mentioned are life areas and not particularly political or policy areas in and of themselves.  If you include Sarah Palin’s policy and professional experience you would have to list among those curious and intrigued by her as those involved in energy, security, local governing, state governing, and other business arenas.

All I can say is God Bless Sarah Palin and I hope she succeeds in promoting her Reaganesque conservatism to the masses …..in whatever form that may take.

(*I am awaiting the arrival of her book, Going  Rogue,  that I pre-ordered weeks ago on Amazon–can’t wait to read it.)

D-Day plus 65 years: We are forever grateful

June 6, 1944.  I found a great piece on the perspective of this day written by Russ at Ace of Spades….Read it and think about it…you’ll be glad you did.

You know what I did this morning? Maybe it would be better if I told you what I didn’t do this morning.

I didn’t have to spend over 12 hours on a transport ship in choppy water, then clamber down a cargo net into a plywood landing craft, all while carrying up to 100 pounds of gear on my back. Then, I didn’t ride through the rough surf in that little plywood target, only to have the steel ramp (the only part of the little plywood boat that was even remotely bullet-resistant) flop down and drop me into the cold ocean water in front of a beach filled with steel obstacles, mines, flying bullets & exploding artillery rounds.

I didn’t fly over enemy occupied territory at 1000 feet in a C47 cargo plane and then jump out of the plane into the teeth of enemy anti-aircraft fire. I didn’t have to worry about my bright white silk parachute making me a good target for troops on the ground who wanted to use me for target practice, and after I landed, I didn’t have to worry about engaging a vastly superior force with only the gear I carried with me (providing that said gear wasn’t ripped off by the turbulence I encountered exiting the plane) with whoever I could gather together from the other troops dropped behind enemy lines the same as I was.

I didn’t march into a plywood glider (PLYWOOD, as we’ve already established, is NOT very resistant to gunfire and explosions) and sit quietly while I was towed into anti-aircraft fire, only to be released and experience a controlled crash into trees, buildings or apparently open fields that were booby trapped with wooden poles and steel cables by the enemy.

I wasn’t asked to take my place in a McGyvered together amphibious tank, where I would most likely be swamped by the waves and sink to the bottom of the English Channel like….well, like a tank rigged for amphibious operations with lumber and canvas. And if I DID happen to get to the beach, I would have been the prime target of every enemy artillery piece for miles around.

I wasn’t asked to sit in a command bunker deep beneath London looking at casualty projections that predicted that we would lose 60% of the airborne troops committed to this battle and a good chunk of the troops storming the beaches, and I also didn’t prepare a letter taking full blame for the possible disaster in order to protect my political leaders.

You know what? Now that I’ve told you what I DIDN’T do this morning, what I actually DID seems pretty freakin’ trivial. Veterans of the Normandy landing are becoming scarce now that we’re sixty-five years down the road from that horrible day, but if you know one of them, make sure to thank them on this day. And don’t limit yourself to D-Day vets – whether it was Normandy, Okinawa, the Chosin Reservoir, the Tet Offensive, Grenada, Panama, Mogadishu, Fallujah, or just some godforsaken mountain road at the ass-end of Afghanistan, EVERYONE who served this country in uniform deserves a hearty handshake and our everlasting gratitude on this day.

And those veterans who never saw a shot fired in anger? Thank them too. As John Wayne once said in his last movie role, “It’s not about being the fastest gun: Its about being WILLING.” Everyone who wore the uniform was willing to “go see the elephant”, and that willingness sets them apart from the rest of us.

God help any nation that cannot produce men and women like them. Remember that on this day.

Omaha Beach 2007 (Source: Wikipedia.com)

I have had the privilege of visiting Omaha Beach and most of the other D-Day beaches along the French coast. 

Those Normandy beaches are a place of beauty.  One can’t help but have heart-wrenching pride and sadness, at the same time, when staring at the sandy beaches and viewing the cliffs of Pointe du Hoc and imagining what happened there 65 years ago today.    It is literally an emotional experience….even this many  years after the events of that day.  It is a place we should all visit if given the chance.

Thank God for those who were willing and those who gave it all!
