Whacha Gonna Do When They Come For You?


The world is on fire.  We all know it.  We all see it.  And many of us opine about it, from positions of great knowledge to positions of great conjecture. 

Reading through the Watchers Council posts yesterday (August 18, 2014) at www.trevorloudon.com regarding the Ferguson Incident-turned-Indictment; I read that the Ferguson police overreacted due to due inexperience and lack of professionalism (The Razor).

I wondered if I missed something by refusing to watch the blow-by-blow gory details hyperbolating all over the media these past few days so I looked up the Ferguson Police Department to get some specifics on the level of training and preparedness these men in blue (turned camouflaged) actually have.

Of course with a typical Patriot’s somewhat jaundiced eye towards the veracity of the press in general, I always try to take Wikipedia posts with the same air of cautious optimism that I hold for all things written (and half of what I see, for that matter).  So, it is with the same conjecture that these “facts” are indeed facts, I quote:

The City of Ferguson’s Police Department numbers 82 personnel including 54 commissioned officers and 20 civilian support staff. The officers are all police academy graduates and are certified peace officers by the Missouri Department of Public Safety.

Three supervisors as well as the Chief are graduates of the FBI National Academy. Many officers have bachelors or advanced degrees. All officers participate in advanced continuous training in numerous areas of law enforcement.

In addition to uniform patrol officers and criminal investigation detectives, the department is supplemented with a K-9 officer, bicycle patrol, traffic unit, a fugitive apprehension team, and a team of officers assigned directly to residential areas. The department has its own correctional facility, maintains evidence and property, and on-site indoor firearms range.

The department’s relationship with the community is enhanced by commitment of personnel to the positions of Community Relations, Business Liaison, N.E.T., DARE, and School Resource Officers.

I’m unsure as to just what to expect from our local men in camouflage these days but I tend to read the above as sufficient training for that department to guard my street as well as write me tickets (I pray that they don’t have to do either).

In the same post I read that American society has grown less violent … hmmm.  I would certainly like to believe that to be true; in fact I would opine that the “American society” has always been inherently non-violent, except in those rare cases when, say, a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism (the kind spoken of in The Declaration of Independence) that led to The American Revolution.   Or, say when slavery (and state’s rights) became too objectionable to the Powers-That-Were in America’s (at the time) seedling Big Government Complex that brought about The Civil War.

But it isn’t “American society” that I fear necessarily.  It is the absolute unmistakable present day invasion of the world’s violent masses upon American society and the absolute unmistakable present day Balkanization of American legal and illegal society that I fear.  It is the non-stop, excessive, fantastical violence portrayed on our present day visual media that I fear.  It is the tyrannical treachery of our present day Huge Government-Gone-Despotic that I fear.

Maybe I am being naïve but I still have this sense that our local law enforcement types from the County Sheriff on down are actually there to protect us; they are the friends that we should not wish to piss off by calling them our enemies.  Now, trust me, I love Liberty much more than I do security, but when they come for me, I want my Thin Blue Line to be better armed that the people who would entirely destroy western civilization if given the chance to do so.


Logically Speaking, Let’s Get Emotional


Wouldn’t you know it, caring is the central political issue according to David Horowitz in Go For The Heart:  How Republicans Can Win.  That’s the name of his little red book that should become a big red (read Republican) movement for electoral success before it is too late. http://go4theheart.org

Even in the real estate industry the successful sales person recognizes that “people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care,” which actually flies in the face of logic.  It would seem that the more you know the better the job you could do.  I know, that’s very Republican of me to say.  I need to get used to it, emotion trumps logic once again.

To make matters even more complicated, according to the late wizard of advertising, Mr. David Ogilvy (God rest his soul), “On the average, five times as many people read the headline as read the body copy.  When you have written your headline, you have spent eighty cents out of your dollar.” David Oligvy Brainy Quotes

In other words, unless you can grab a person by the heart with a short by-line you cannot get them to visit the facts.  Actually, even if you do grab them by the heart don’t bother trying to get most people to visit facts.  For some reason, many of us just are not interested in research or records or pie charts or positions; we just want to know that you care.

Care?  Care about what, you ask.  Therein lies the seven trillion dollar deficit question.  Do people care about the truth?  Do they care about history?  Do they care about economies, or national security or honest politicians?  Based upon a study of voting patterns it would seem not.  I mean, really, if people cared about these types of things, would they have twice elected barack hussein obama to the highest office in the once free world?

It seems many people only care about the answer to the question: What’s in it for me, or will I get my social security check on time? Will the pot hole in front of my driveway be fixed?  Does my Internet connection work?  Do I really have to exercise? Can I get extra fries with that burger?

Quite frankly, this is a rather sad expression of the times in which we live.  Americans have had it so good for so long that we seem to have forgotten (or maybe never learned) that until you have lived through real tragedy it is very difficult to see that much of what we spend our days focusing upon really doesn’t matter much at all.  In fact, even after having lived through some real tragedy, I still find myself worrying about that skin tag on the left side of my neck, as if it matters one whit to the survival of the free world or the safety of our beloved country, which I really do care about.

You get the picture.  We are all victims of living the good life.  We do know that poverty in America isn’t like poverty in say, Mozambique or Haiti or Afghanistan.  And talk about complaining … Americans seem to be the biggest complainers on the face of the earth with the least amount of real trouble to complain about … I’m not complaining, mind you.  It just doesn’t seem logical.

So, how do we capture the emotions of the average American and expose the democrat lie that “Republicans don’t care about people?  I mean if truth be told, according to IRS reporting, Republicans are, hands down, more charitable than democrats in reality … just not in perception Study: Red States More Charitable.

And, if truth be told again, Republicans are generally too nice (or too … well, let’s leave it at too nice), to use the word LIE when talking about democrats as I just did in the preceding paragraph.  But calling democrats LIARS is exactly the truth and that is exactly what Republicans must do to win elections.  As David Horowitz stated, “The way we can beat the democrats is by turning their guns around … it’s about fighting fire with fire” http://go4theheart.org/horowitz-speech-and-video/.

That seems easier said than done.  The above link is a video of David Horowitz speaking at an Americans for Prosperity conference in September of 2013 about this subject.  That was almost one full year ago and I haven’t heard many Republicans using fire against democrats yet. Oh, and it isn’t that Republicans don’t know how to use fire; indeed they do.

It should still be fresh in our minds what Sen. thad cochran did in June of 2014 to scorch Rep. Chris McDaniel’s chances in the primary election in Mississippi. breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/06/30/Democrat-Pastor-Accuses-Thad-Cochran-Campaign-Of-Vote-For-Pay-Scheme And in Michigan’s 3rd District you should have seen the extent to which establishment Republicans went after pro-liberty sitting Rep. Justin Amash in his primary election this month.  The negative advertising was so shameful that you would have thought that Rep. Amash was running against some kind of cruel socialist communist propagandist instead of a fellow Republican Rebel-Leader-Justin-Amash-Wins-Big-In-Michigan.

So maybe the better question is, “How do we stop demoralizing the base and start demoralizing the opposition”?  We have a little less that three months to get it right “emotionally speaking” before this next important election, which Republicans should win, logically speaking.


America Under Siege – “How” versus “Why” – by William E. Been


As an American who values our country second only to God and family, it is difficult to understand why the vast majority of the leaders and spokesmen for our country consistently voice a lack of understanding as to why Barack Obama either does or does not do certain actions that would be viewed as adding value or preserving America. Whether it be elected officials, political experts, talk-radio, or fair and balanced discussions, it seems that the typical responses when asked “Why?” are “I don’t know” or “It is incompetency” or “Obama is inexperienced” or “Obama is just a community organizer” or “inept” or “does not have the will” while ignoring the fact that Barack Obama told America exactly what he was going to do and he is closely following his stated direction. The purpose of this document is not only to demonstrate that the answer to the “Why?” question is very straightforward, but to also demonstrate that the wrong question is being asked further masking the anti-American agenda of Barack Hussein Obama.

My book, Masters of Audacity and Deceit, clearly describes why Barack Obama is acting in a fashion that is opposing America and the fundamental principles upon which America was founded. At the time the book was written, the concerns that are reality today were presented as threats created or supported by the National Democrat Party that need to be understood and confronted by all citizens. These same threats provide the explanation for Barack Obama’s apparent “incompetence” and can be summarized in one statement as follows:

Barack Obama is simply carrying out his transformation objectives and direction that he promised five days prior to his election to the presidency in 2008 by following the ideology and teachings of Cloward & Piven, Carl Marx, Saul Alinsky, and Jeremiah Wright as interpreted by a host of communists including his mother, Frank Marshall Davis, and the admitted small ’c’ communist Bill Ayers, and far left groups epitomized by the Institute For Policy Studies while drawing financial and ideological support from wealthy liberals led by George Soros and the Soros Democracy Alliance group, the anti-American Progressive groups, and Wall Street executives such as Lloyd Blankfein  under the protective cover of a totally compromised Mainstream Media and the corrupted modern day Democrat Party that is populated by leaders who lie, cheat, distort, and politicize events for their self-serving objectives without regard for either America or the American people.

That Barack Obama has succeeded in reaching his objectives is evident from the following list of his “accomplishments” during his first six years:


One special accomplishment that is an active work in process of Obama and his administration is to establish that “America is not a Christian nation” while declaring that Islam was instrumental in the establishment of America. This fallacious and false representation of American history was clearly debunked in a recent Fourth of July sermon that spoke to the charters of the Original Thirteen Colonies and why these people had left their homelands for the freedoms available in the New World. These charters tell the real American story and the success in downplaying this Judeo-Christian heritage is the most repulsive and scandalous accomplishment of Barack Hussein Obama. These charters are presented with the hope being that some people will awaken and come to the rescue of America before Barack Obama and his anti-American allies complete their destruction of the greatest country on earth. Quotes from the charters follow:

  • Virginia – to help in “propagating of Christian religion…”
  • Plymouth – “…to advance the enlargement of the Christian religion to the glory of God Almighty.”
  • Delaware –  one purpose is “…the further propagation of the Holy Gospel.”
  • Maryland – first settlers motivated by “…pious zeal for extending the Christian religion.”
  • Massachusetts – bring “the knowledge and obedience of the only true God and Savior of mankind.”
  • Rhode Island – “Commits its people to the true Christian faith and worship of God.”
  • Connecticut – “to help preserve the liberty and purity of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
  • New Hampshire – “…do in the name of Christ and in the sight of God…”

In addition, when the Declaration of Independence was written, the last words were “…under the protection of the Divine Providence.” This was followed some years later by George Washington, after his first inauguration, leading the members of the House and Senate to St. Paul’s Church in New York to seek guidance and to commit America to God.

In conclusion, the answer to the “Why?” question is very simply stated above if one understands the various transformation objectives that Barack Obama has clearly articulated throughout his lifetime. If this is understood, the need for the “Why?” question no longer exists, and the correct question can then be asked which is: “How do current events and crises fit into the Barack Obama transformation objectives and direction?” Without this question being asked and answered, the American people will continue going to the next election never understanding why our great country is being diminished at home and abroad!!!!
