Your Senate Bill, S. 773, aka the "Cybersecurity Act" has finally given Americans who refuse to betray their country (as you continue to do) the ultimate weapon against you and people like you:

You gave us a bill that utterly pulverizes the artificial firewall between the political "left " and "right". A bill that unites all Americans in our fight against government oppression and never-ending, ever-tightening surveillance from "above".

Even the most extreme leftwing or rightwing government shills among us don't want you and those like you snooping on our computer hard drives without our consent. Besides, what you propose does not stand up to even the most cursory constitutional analysis.

Personal computers have become the locus of modern man's private "papers and effects". The Fourth Amendment prohibits any such attempts without a duly executed warrant, supported by probable cause:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

This bill of yours finally gives me the opportunity to go through my neighborhood and talk to both left and right, green, red, or blue, moderate or libertarian, to gather support for the freedom movement you are so hysterically and frantically trying to supporess and control.

You know that the First Amendment and the Internet are our primary weapon, so you try to destroy the former and control the latter You will fail - because you have just given us the ultimate weapon to oust you and those who support you, once and for all, and for all time to come.

For that, I sincerely thank you.

Yours truly,

Alex Wallenwein

The Granny Warrior Smells A Rat

(The following is from Linda Hunnicut, better known under her fighting name, "The Granny Warrior". She nails it. Bottom line is that what should be done to contain this plague, if it is one, is close the borders to illegal traffic, for one. What should not be done is to "closely monitor" legal entry points while doing nothing about the thousands of miles of illegal entry stretches. It's like a bank strip-searching its customers who come through the front door while leaving the safe and the back door wide open for burglars. It makes no sense. But there is way more to the subject than this.)

Take it from Granny:

It Stinks!
by Linda Hunnicut

"Folks lets get real here now. I just read where there were over 50,000,000 doses of vaccine ready to roll for this flu virus? Now how can that be? Of course there is always the Tamiflu medication which will make Rumsflield even richer.

When you think about all the deaths what is it now 200? More people die from colds and regular flu every year than this yet this is being touted as a major dangerous virus? BUT.. being so dangerous our borders will stay open? Do you realize that with this scare tactic going on the Mexican population will be lining up at the borders flooding more and more illegals into this country. We are already over run but keep the borders open not a problem..Bring it on. We are all such good people and only want to help these poor people survive... We will give up our health, our freedoms, our language, our money and our homes, jobs and education to help these poor people. After all we are a Christian nation. Oh wait no we are not, Obama told the world we were not a Christian Nation but a Global one...

Every single radio, tv and internet connection is blasting about the Pandemic? What pandemic? Where is it? Oh Yes Mexico where the government is in need of shutting down because of the Drug Cartels taking over? Could this just be a method of scaring people into conforming? Obeying? Fear is the driving force of every regimes over taking of power.

It also plays right into our Governments goals of keeping us the Americans busy with one thing and sneaking in laws, rules and mandates behind closed curtains. We aren't paying attention to what they are doing while we are obsessed with the fear of a Pandemic. What perfect timing.. Of course Obama isn't in fear, he was just in Mexico and was in close proximity to one of the rulers there that just died from the supposedly Terrible Pandemic? Why wasn't Obama in fear ? That should tell us all something is wrong with this whole thing.

Fear is the enemy and will always do the work of taming the people into submission. Always. The majority of people will do anything out of fear, give up their rights, give up their guns, give up their beliefs and give up their individuality and even worse give up their common sense.

I hate fear. I hate fear mongers. I hate those that give up in fear.

How long will it be before we are told to go to designated stations and get our shots to protect us against this deadly virus? Folks if you go for this you are certainly brain dead, First of all there has not been enough time from the identification of the virus to even design a vaccine much less time to produce it in mass quantities that is unless they have some serum they need to get rid of ready to go? The big Pharma companies probably have tons of different serums they haven't been able to sell to the public and need the space and money. It all boils down to the $$$$$ doesn't it? Or another thought, could it be the serum contains the actual virus to make the Pandemic Real? To get rid of a lot of the population and save the planet as the Globalists keep saying needs to be done?

Folks use common sense... do what is necessary to protect your family sensibly. Don't become a panic stricken victim of FEAR. Stop listening and believing everything that is broadcast over the air waves, how much truth have you heard from them in the past? Think about it. How many times have the fear mongers tried to start events that failed because the people just didn't listen? The basic fear of death and illness is one of the best methods of scaring people into IN-Action... Let's give them some reaction. Ignore the so called Hosts of Horror. Think and reason for yourself. If you feel the need for protection then do it but on your own path, eat healthy, take your supplements, don't go over and hug someone with a snotty nose who is sneezing and coughing out of pity, just walk away. It probably isn't the flu but a nasty spring cold. But why take the chance?

What we need to be focusing on is the state of our Nation, the take over of the Communist in our own country. We cannot allow our attention to be diverted. Every day more and more of our freedoms are being derailed and with the Congress's approval.

I think we have lost that battle but will win in the end if we can just keep our heads on straight. Just think of all regimes and their downfall, once a tyrant is appointed and gains control there are always those in his own group that want to have his power and contrive and conspire to take it away which makes it a battle within itself. The corrupt will kill each other off as they have no loyalty, it is all about power. People who desire power so highly are usually just pitiful bullies who have no courage on their own but depend on followers to do the work. Bullies ae always present in any of these regimes, remember Sadam hiding in the cave like a wimpy little weasel? Did he stand up like a man or cower in a cave like the coward he was? They are all the same.. look back in history, how many tyrants were killed in battle?

When the masses of people who have followed their lead and believed their lies realize they have been dealt a bad hand they will also rise up in mass wanting all the good things that have been promised. Where is their equality, their free medicine, their free homes and cars, their free income, their glorious life of ease and peace? Who is protecting them? Who is keeping them safe and from what?

We just have to survive and wait for them to cripple themselves.. A crippled corrupt Power Monger is easy to overtake. We can rebuild America if we are strong both in body and mind.

It is important now for all of those people who want to survive in a settlement of like minded people to join with us now and get a safe place of retreat. When it is necessary for you to relocate your family to a place that has good food, clean water and people who think for them selves you will have a place ready and waiting for you. If some terrible disaster happens you will have a place of safety to escape to. There isn't a need for you to pull up stakes and move immediately, there are those that will be there making it ready for everyone, so when you need your place it will be ready and even if you lose everything by some sort of disaster you can be assured you won't be dumpster diving for your daily bread.

Bernanke, Paulson, Above the Law

There is no better example of high-level corruption under the guise of "national emergency" than Hankie Paulson's now admitted threat to Bank of America president Lewis that he had better keep the true shape of Merill Lynch's finances from his shareholders, or face the entire board or himself being ousted by Bernanke and his Federal Reserve boys.

It just so happens that keeping important information like that from shareholders is a violation of the law. Securities and Exchange Commission law, that is - precisely the law Hank Paulson was hired to uphold.

Naturally, Paulson has recanted now. First he fingered Bernanke to putting him up on it,now he claims it was "all his idea" and Bernie never told him o say that. Now we don't know which of Paulson's statements was true. We only know that one of them was a lie. Poor Hankieboy. He should have done what all good criminals do and deny everything Lewis accused him of.

In either case, whether Bernie put him up to it or not, Bernie surely knew what he was doing these guys coordinate everything. I haven't seen a press release of Bernie reprimanding Hankie for violating the law, have you?

I also haven' seen any calls for a Congressional investigation into this, have you? All I saw is that Obama has "complete confidence" in Bernanke. Confidence to do what? Break the law?

Ultimately, Congress is responsible for this mess. That means we, the American electorate are responsible, because we determine who gets to stay in Congress and who doesn't, so yes, give your Congressman a guilt trip over this to push him to co-sponsor the Federal Reserve Transparency Act(HR 1207)- and then fire him when it comes to election time if he votes for laws that violate his oath of office.

See how much fun this is?

The Only Way to 'End the Fed'

There is only one way to effectively end the Fed, and that is by establishing control over Congress. Congress established the Fed, only Congress can end it. Thus far, we agree.

Most people who disagree with the "Fire Congress" campaign or the "Kick Them All Out" project don't really disagree on the need to establish control over Congress. They only disagree with the method for achieving this. They want to be more civil. They think they can still reason with their Congressmen and get them to "do the right thing." They also worry that you lose your clout over your representatives if you just categorically want to un-elect them. "Why would they listen to you if they know you will fire them anyway?" - or so the argument goes.

Let's see if that is a valid argument.

Assume you want to "End the Fed" as so many former RonPaulers want to. Assume you are successful in getting Ron Paul's "Audit the Fed" bill (H.R. 1207) passed by both Houses and signed by the president by the mere power of persuasion and by educating the public to put enough pressure on their representatives.

Assume further that the audit finally reveals what a fraud on the people the Fed really is and that this causes such an unprecedented level of outrage that Congress relents and passes a bill to abolish the Fed - and that the president, whoever he may be, even signs that bill into law as well.

Have you won?

No - because the same corrupt politicians who enabled the Fed's continuing fraud on the people are still in office. The same corporate interests that corrupted them in the first place still have unfettered access to your Congressman and Senators. After a few more years and a few more "national emergencies" have passed, the same corporate interests will persuade the same congressional incumbents to start another central bank to "save us all."

So, have your efforts at public education established control over Congress? No. All you have achieved is to create and ride a wave of public outrage to resolve a single issue- the Fed and its fraud. The same politicians who have allowed the Fed to exist all along are still there-and they know they have a 95% chance to get re-elected. They know that the public attention span is short and that it will be gobbled up in less than a week by another "hot issue."

Compare this with the following scenario:

Assume you are able to use your public education efforts to persuade enough people to engage their neighbors and friends to mount a campaign to fire their current Congressman and Senator for having violated the Constitution by allowing the Fed to exist, by allowing "bills of credit" or fiat money to circulate, by allowing the president to start foreign wars at will, by allowing him to spy on you and by forcing telecom companies to spy on you as well, by passing laws that restrict your freedom of speech, your right to own guns, your freedom from secret searches of your home, etc., etc.

Assume further that this campaign catches on fire and spreads across the country. Come November 6th 2010, at least fifty percent of congressional and senatorial incumbents find themselves out on the street, looking for actual gainful employment, many for the first time in their lives.

Now, picture in your mind the effect this will haven the new crop of office holders. Do you think they will feel quite as free to ignore your will as their predecessors? You know they won't.

If you and all those voters who have just tossed this old crop out on their ears tell the new crop that they must audit and end the Fed - or else, do you think they will be more amenable to listen? They know that they only occupy their new office because you have actually and effectively asserted your will on Congress!

Nothing like this has ever happened in US history. Ever.

If you have the power to spread the FireCongress message around the country, you also have the power to educate voters to end the Fed - but you will have achieved far more. You have destroyed every corrupt congresscritter's reasonable expectation of job security - and their job security is the primary reason why you have none (the bad economy was the Fed's fault and it was established and maintained by Congress, so Congress killed your job security).

So, the remaining fifty percent of corrupt incumbents are still there. Does that mean they will listen to you more or less?

Probably more - if they want to keep their jobs.

The thing is you don't fire politicians willy-nilly. You only fire them when they prove to you that they ignore the Constitution, the rule of law, and your rights. It's just that, currently at least, 99.9 percent of them do - so the slogan "Kick Them All Out" is not an exaggeration.

It's up to you. You can choose to expend whatever time and energy you have on a single issue - or you can fundamentally change the balance of power in America back to the people, the voters of this country, for good. Both endeavors essentially take the same effort.

Which one do you prefer?

Congress/Obama Want YOUR BLOG!

Think you got time to wait for a "good"Congress so you don't need to fire the current one? Try this on for size. As Martin says (the other guy who blogs here), if we don't fire them in 2010, we need pigeons to communicate!

Here is the full text of what's howling through the blogosphere like a 300 mph typhoon on Jupiter, right now:

Gird Your Blogs!
Under "Cybersecurity", Congress Will Be the Internet's Greatest Threat!

By Brad O'Leary

Gird your blogs, because if liberals in Congress get their way, President Obama will have sole discretionary authority to shut down the Internet or critical parts of the Internet should he feel his presidency is being tested. Worse, under the guise of cybersecurity, Obama will essentially be granted the power to destroy free speech on the web.

On April 1st of this year, Senators Rockefeller, Snowe, Bayh and Nelson introduced bills S. 773 and S.778, collectively called the Cybersecurity Act, which would give President Obama dictatorial power over the Internet during a time of national crisis or emergency.

All of the bills' sponsors voted for the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 that prohibited organizations and individuals from running advocacy ads against candidates 60 days in advance of a general election. Now it seems these same people have conjured up a gag order for the Internet.

According to the current drafts, under the Cyber Security Act of 2009 the President may "declare a cybersecurity emergency and order the limitation or shut down of Internet traffic to and from any comprised federal government or United States critical infrastructure information system or network". He may also "order the disconnection of any Federal Government or United States critical infrastructure information systems or networks in the interest of national security."

What constitutes "cybersecurity emergency" or "critical infrastructure information system or network" is left completely up to the President to define. We know that the Administration, according to Rahm Emanuel, never wants "a serious crisis to go to waste". We also know the Administration supports the regulation of free speech on the Internet.

President Obama's choice to lead the powerful Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs is none other than Cass Sunstein, a radical Harvard law professor and supporter of the Fairness Doctrine for the Internet. According to Sunstein, "A system of limitless individual choices, with respect to communications, is not necessarily in the interest of citizenship and self-government."

Obama campaign fundraiser and FCC Chair nominee, Julius Genachowski, is a supporter of "Net neutrality", the first step in applying the Fairness Doctrine to the Internet.

"Net neutrality" proponents like Genachowski would have government decide what content Internet operators and network owners must provide. Incredibly, they claim this is to keep the Internet free and open to all, when in reality, their goal is to usher the heavy hands of federal regulators into the tent.

Stifling any venue where ideology competes with left-wing mainstream media has always been a goal of the left and Obama. Obama has just been more evasive in his means by supporting policies such as "net neutrality" and wobbling on the reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine to talk radio. Liberal members of Congress are now set on sending America on an unconstitutional b-line away from Uncle Sam and directly to Big Brother.

The Cybersecurity Act is also includes a provision where "The Department of Commerce shall serve as the clearinghouse of cybersecuirty threat and vulnerability information to the Federal Government and private sector owned (emphasis mine) critical infrastructure information systems and networks." Shelving all privacy laws including the requirement for warrants, the Secretary of Commerce "shall have access to all relevant data concerning such networks without regard to any provision of law, regulation, rule or policy restricting such access." Senator Rockefeller made it clear in his statement what "relevant data" this act could include when he stated "We must protect our critical infrastructure at all costs – from our water to our electricity, to banking, traffic lights and electronic health records – the list goes on."

While we have worried about cyber attacks from Russia and China, who would have thought the greatest threat would come from members of our own Congress?

My Comment: They act like they own you because you do not enforce your ownership rights on them. Forget parties. Forget ideologies. For Americans, the only acceptable standard for voting is the Constitution!

Fire Congress - or accept responsibility for the consequences!!!

The FBI Spied on You DuringTea Parties


"The source alleges that a second directive was issued on or about April 6, 2009 that reportedly instructed each SAC to coordinate and conduct, either at the field office level and/or with the appropriate resident agency, covert video surveillance and data collection of the participants of the TEA parties. Surveillance was to be performed from 'discreet fixed or mobile positions' and was to be performed 'independently and outside of the purview of local law enforcement'."

"Although the level of detail collected from each operation is unclear, the information was reportedly submitted to Washington, where, “at the level of the National Security Branch (NSB), this information was to “include the office of the Directorate of Intelligence (DI), and integrated with a restricted access database, one that reportedly is accessible to only two agencies” [of the 14 agencies that comprise the U.S. intelligence community, according to the source."

“'The implications to the citizens of the U.S. are ominous. It seems that there is a hostile political agenda coming from Washington that characterizes the supporters of our constitutional freedoms as threats to our domestic security, which is totally absurd'."

Read all about it here: http://homelandsecurityus.com/?p=2659

If this is not reason to fire your Congressman, please stop reading this post and go back to whatever you were doing before- and pray that they will leave you alone because you showed your "goodwill" in trying to buckle under whatever regime they are getting ready to impose on you. I will pray for you, too.

As for the rest of us, the most important thing is to show that we insist on living free. We will not shut up or stop organizing and going to events like these tea parties just because some paranoid schizophrenic One Worlder believes that we are a "threat to national security."

The truth is that THEY are the threat to national security. The tea parties were models of civil behavior. Compare them with the WTO riots or any leftist"anti-war" demo, and you can immediately see the difference.

Here is the point:

All of this is happening only because our Congress consents to it and continues to pass laws that authorize this kind of covert syping on lawful patriots.

This Congress must go!!

Thursday, April 16, 2009


Oft-decried and much-hated (by the political "Left" at least) Bush policies are alive and well under a "Left"-directed Congress and white house, it seems. Socialists hated the neocon doctrine of preemptive war under the former administration - but don't seem to mind it under the current one, just as long as it is aimed at the illusory political opposition.

Here is the excerpt from a recent Department of Homeland Security-issued bulletin entitled "Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment" that warns government agents of Americans who value the same thing these agents swore an oath to uphold: The Constitution of the United States.

Here is the 'preamble' of that DHS Bulletin:

"Extremism and Radicalization Branch to facilitate a greater understanding of the phenomenon of violent radicalization in the United States. The information is
provided to federal, state, local, and tribal counterterrorism and law enforcement
officials so they may effectively deter, prevent, preempt, or respond to terrorist attacks against the United States."

As widely predicted, Obama, who in the end is responsible for this, is not above using the precise tyrannical powers claimed and usurped by the Bush administration when it is in his masters' best interest. (A note to Neocons: This is why the Patriot Act was a bad idea. Get it?!)

The language ("violent radicalization) stems from a bill (Democrat Jane Harman's H.R. 1955 entitled the "Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007") that passed the Democrat Congress in 2007 but never went further. This means of course that it is not (yet) law - but that obviously doesn't deter Obama who apparently agrees with the premise, since DHS is under his direct command.

This is proof that "Left" and "Right" are meaningless distinctions without a difference - and that every single Congressional Incumbent who voted/votes for laws like these must be fired ASAP!

It is your responsibility to do whatever you can to accomplish that. You can help to do that by passing this on and getting your friends to subscribe to this blog feed.

Went and Saw the Houston Tea Party ...

As indicated before, this was a neocon event with some libertarian/Ron Paul trappings. I heard a Houston lawyer talk. Gave a rousing, well-rehearsed speech that hit all the hot-buttons of his target audience. (He will probably be a rising star in the Texas GOP, soon). He talked about "sending those in Washington an unmistakable message" - and then flopped by saying "... so, go ahead, write your Congressman." Oh no! Not the "w" word!! It's too strong!!! Right. If that worked, we wouldn't be where we are because that's what has been done all along, forever, since the days of the Founders.

The problem is that the Founders gave us the ballot box - but without a sufficiently explicit owners manual. In other words, by itself, writing to our Congressmen, etc., it's not effective. It must be followed up by the only thing that matters to them: the deprivation of their office.

A guy who studied Economics a the Mises Institute gave a speech after the lawyer and mentioned that one of his main heroes is Ron Paul. That got him a reaction out of only ten percent of the audience there. The rest were completely silent.

The location was the same as that of a Bush rally I attended in 2003. Downtown Houston, Jones Pavillon. There was about the same size crowd there as well, about three thousand or so, maybe one or two hundred more. All in all, a successful event one must say, but there was a palpable feeling the whole thing was put on by the same brand of Republican folks who lost their power in Congress and in the white house and who want to use this opportunity to get it back.

The news was there, of course and covered the event plenty. Better than the Bush rally back in 2003 when only Channel 39 (Warner) showed up bu never aired it.

It's funny how everybody goes right up to the point where the next logical progression would come in to make sure the incumbents in Congress who have been there for decades and who have by and large authorized everything that is happening to this country now must be fired, from now on until perpetuity unless they follow the Constitution. Yet - not a word. Not that explicit. Just hidden innuendos, but hey, what can you expect, right? Rome wasn't conquered in a day, either - and this country certainly has become Rome.

In other news, Governor wannabe-(again) Rick Perry told reporters privately after the Austin TeaParty that "Texans are fed up" and that if the federal government doesn't shape up, they might actually want to secede. Channel 13 KTRK (ABC affiliate) actually reported that. Makes you wonder Rick will keep that tune when the administration goes back into Republican hands next term. Probably not. It wasn't a statement about the Constitution although he tried mightily to couch it in those terms. It was about which party controls Congress and the white house. Nothing more. You could tell from his body language that he didn't mean a word he said over there in Austin. Who knows? He might be trying to follow GW and aim for a run at the white house. Hope his aim is better than Dick Cheney's - or maybe not.

So, the question remains: is this the beginning of the victory, the emergence of the Ron Paul Revolution into mainstream consciousness, or is the Revolution in the process of being subsumed into the GOP's efforts at regaining control? (Not that they ever do anything with that control once they have it, except push us further down the road of constitutional mayhem.) Are we strong enough to show the neocons that real Freedom and real Prosperity under the actual Rule of Law are the way to go, or will we let them use our slogans and our voices and faces, etc. just to get a chance to re-occupy the white house and capitol hill?

Only you can answer that question - and you can only answer it by your actions, from here on out - not by verbal or written protestations.

Time will tell ...

Houston Tea Party Society close to getting it

The Houston Tea Party Society has a blog post here that says:

"Remember, the Tea Party is like the pep rally before the big game. It ISN’T the game! The “game” is developing a habit of activism and involvement! The “game” is refusing to let Washington power grabs go unchecked anymore. The “game” is vowing today to hold elected officials accountable, and not to let them get away with ignoring us anymore!"

The how to hold them accountable is not mentioned however. Do they REALLY get it? The only way to hold elected officials accountable is to remove them from office if they do not vote for the people. The only organization that does get it, is the Kick Them All Out Project.

Houston Tea Party Society "Gets It"

The web site of the Houston Tea Party Society has this little blurb on its front page today:

"Remember, this is not an anti-President Obama rally, it’s about what the runaway Congress is allowing to happen in this nation! The varmints we can do something about are the ones WE send to Washington, so let’s focus there first."

Way to go, Houston TPS!!

Remember: if you don't have a solid pro-constitution candidate to vote for in in your district at the next election (highly unlikely), you are guaranteed to have an anti-constitutional one running for re-election to vote against.

It's called keeping your house clean. By the way: please don't forget Austin, TX, your own state's capital, and your local city council. Thanks for paying attention.

Neoconned - Again?


"Neoconservative insurgents have hijacked a "RonPaul Airlines" plane and are commandeering it to fly into the last remaining bastion of freedom, the twin towers of "Peace" (unless attacked) and "Prosperity" (unless we can't get rid of the Fed). Unwitting passengers are reportedly too enthralled to simply bum-rush these idiots and are bracing themselves for being taken on yet another "one hell of a ride."

See also: Glenn Beck and Ron Paul ... Fool Me Once?

and: Why I don' buy the Tea Party Protests

Want more evidence? As recently as yesterday, the www.teapartyday.com website had Newt Gingrich's mug shot on the video at the top of its home page. Who owns that site? It doesn't say. A "whois" search reveals the domain is owned by and outfit called "AFA" at the address 450 Main Street Savannah, Tennessee 38372. A Google search for that reveals it is the American Family Association.

Now, don't get me wrong. There's nothing wrong with the American family, but the AFA is a total neocon-duped Christian Right organization - you know, the ones who ignored and shouted down Ron Paul durng all of 2007 and most of 2008 and kept hanging on every single word of George W. Bush and friends.

Who is headlining at the Tea Party in Atlanta? Ron Paul hater Sean Hannity himself. And, oh yeah, before I forget: Rick Perry now mysteriously comes out and supports the excellent Texas Sovereignty Declaration drafted and introduced by Texas State Rep Brandon Creighton.

Make no mistake. Rick "TTC-Man" Perry is no friend of Texas sovereignty. He presided over the giveaway of the "management rights" over certain Texas freeways to "Cinta", the Spanish corporation who apparently as the highest bidder for the Trans Texas Corridor. When it comes to posturing about the border, Rick is always front and center - but then he always has these mysterious changes of mind when the limelight isn't on him. What a shame.

Well, there's one way to see if Rickieboy is for real: if he comes out in support of Debra Medina for Texas governor in 2010 and really helps her instead of only seeming to do so while tripping her up, that's when I'll believe him. (Well, maybe that's a bit strong of a word. Let's say that's when I won't distrust him as much.)

But wait, there's more: Even arch Paul-hater Michelle Malkin comes out gushing about the Tea Parties growing. Who would have thought?

Let's face it: The Republican Party as we all know it is finished, and these guys know it. Without the fresh blood of the Ron Paul movement and everything that accompanies it, the GOP is no more. Since I am a supporter of Ron Paul's ideas, and since I haven't volunteered to give my blood to the GOP, I must assume they are intent on sucking it out of me anyway, with or without my consent.

Fat chance - again!

In any case, it is undeniable by now that former neocons are falling all over themselves to associate their sorry selves with this movement - so they will reap the rewards and come back into power when the mounting backlash against Obama makes Mr. Stupid American go back to the polls in 2010 and think he is "voting the bad guys out" when he votes the same old GOP squadron of power-hungry cretins back in that have ruled us without any regard to the Constitutionuntil last fall. Oh, the miracles of the two-party system never cease!

Have they all miraculously seen the light, now? Fat chance. Maybe a Bud Light, but that's about it.

Now, granted, this is a great opportunity for us to get our message out. We just need to be careful who holds the reins when we all hitch our wagons to that beaten old (but still hungry!) horse. Human nature dictates that, when they offer those among us whom they perceive as key opinion makers a 'position of influence' within their party apparatus here or there (or maybe on Fox News), many of us will fold and end up playing into their hands. Wanna bet?

However, as long as we manage to stick to the Constitution as the measuring rod (and maybe the beating rod) to evaluate their actions and the things they ask us to support once they think they have gained our trust, and as long as we - from now on until forever - immediately vote out anyone in power who violates his oath of office, they really can't win.

This whole thing will show, more than anything else, whether America still has a right to be free - or whether even we are willing to trade that freedom for either security, fame, fortune, or power. You know what happens to those who try, don't you?

The good part is that whether this happens or not is entirely within our power - not theirs!

Here is something worth considering:

If we are strong enough to make these goons try to jump on our bandwagon - couldn't we "make it" all on our own, even without their Faustian offers of media and power-structure help?

Just a thought.

Fighting Evil with Evil - or Stupidity with Insanity?

Don’t laugh. Fighting evil with evil makes lots of sense – if you want a permanent state of evil to persist.

Congress and the administration have found a new and improved way of convincing the US public that trying to make sense out of politicians is like trying to persuade a pathological liar to switch to speaking only the truth. It’s a non-starter.

While fighting fire with fire makes sense to some extent (you burn away the fuel in a controlled fashion so that wildfires can’t spread as easily), fighting debt with more debt as in the recent string of bailout fiascos, for example, does not. As sufficiently observed by astute media pundits, it’s like fighting a fire with gasoline, or like pumping water into a sinking ship as observed in the post below.

Not to be deterred, however, Congress is about to embark on an even crazier path: fighting pollution (which allegedly causes global warming) by polluting the upper atmosphere with chemicals designed to act as a “sun-shade.”


That means if you have a company that emits pollutants in the course of its manufacturing process, you must pay a penalty in the form of purchasing “emission credits” – while the government gets to make its on atmospheric pollution program “legal” just by voting for it.

According to the law of unintended consequences, the very best case outcome of this insanity is that the sunshade actually ends up working – and therefore will bring about the next ice age (once the solar cycle that is the actual cause of any current global warming abates n the natural, non-man made, course of galactic events.) What will politicians come up with, then? Start a government program that requires you to burn more fossil fuel so our children and grandchildren can stop shivering? Mandate the purchase of government-issue super-SUVs while imposing tax penalties for riding a bike to work?

The worst-case scenario is that whatever they shoot, pump, or spray up there will make the atmosphere permanently toxic. How do we know what they are actually unloading into our breathing space? Does a big polluter with great white house connections have a lot of particulate matter to unload that would otherwise be illegal to dispose of? If he gets the white house to make him the number one sunshade dealer of the world, his polluting will become legal. Simple as that.

Why is all of this happening? It’s happening because congressional (that includes senatorial) incumbents know they have a statistical probability of getting reelected that is better than 90 percent.

Just imagine you had a job that guaranteed you a similar chance of continued employment (and an iron-clad retirement program to boot after only two years of service!) in spite of boasting nothing but failures and breaches of your employment contract. Would you still listen to your boss? Would you even try to make sense? No way. You would act just like these jokers – and eventually get a chance to vote yourself pay raises.

Whose fault is this sad and slightly ironic state of affairs?

Ours, yours and mine - because we haven’t enforced the law* on them. So, if you have any complaints about Congress, ask yourself if you have voted for your local congressional incumbent at any time during the past three elections (or “refused” to vote out of “protest”). If you did, you know who is to blame for this mess.

You are.

So, please do something about it – while you still can.

"Bailout" - The Misnomer of the Decade!

The so-called "bailout" is a huge misnomer. Ask yourself to what extent the term has misled you.

When you are in a boat that has sprung a leak and is taking on water, "bailing it out" means to take a pail ( i.e., a bucket or similar vessel) and bail (pail) out the water that keeps seeping in through the leak - not to add more water!

The "water" we a re all suffering from is debt. Too much debt is sinking the USS Titanic - and our president(s) and Congress are doing whatever they can to add more debt to sink the already badly listing luxury liner.

How much sense does that make?

Maybe this is another reason to fire your Congressman. Has he voted for this "pail out"? If he(she) did, you'd better let him know by actually voting against him in 2010. If you opt for the "don't vote" cop out, you will really have wasted your vote!

Mid-term elections are more powerful than presidential ones - because they focus your attention on Congress - the actual culprit in America's demise.

The End of Party Politics

Time to Stop Messing Around

The illusory fight between the supposed "Left" and the supposed "Right" keeps us plebs nice and busy fighting each other - so those we elect have time to spare to party with each other and their corporate lobbyists and donors - while passing bills that restrict our freedom.

If you want to hit your target, it's time to stop aiming "left" or "right." It's time to aim for the bull's eye - all of Congress.

Congress is the first and most powerful branch of the US government. It is our representatives in Congress who authorize every single piece of legislation that violates the Constitution and destroys the America we all know and love.

The eternal key to bull's eye politics is accountability, and there is only one way to hold wayward politicians truly accountable.

You fire them.

When you hire a servant and you come home from work and find him reclining on your couch with his feet up on your coffee table, drinking your best Scotch and fondling your wife, you don't plead with him to "see it your way." You fire him.

Historically, however, Americans have not only failed to fire their wayward servants, they gave them the keys to their homes and cars, the password to their bank accounts, and they are about to sign away the deeds to their homes.

You cannot fire all of Congress, of course. It has to start with your very own Congressman or woman, in your voting district, and in your precinct. You have the power to do this. No one can tell you how to vote or who to persuade to vote like you do. There are no barriers or obstacles, and there are only three hurdles to clear:

Hurdle No. 1: Voting Machines

Voting machines give power over our entire elective process to four big corporations with lots of "friends" in Congress and in your state's legislature. That must stop. The way to stop it is to get five or so signatures from your neighbors to get on the ballot as a candidate for Precinct Chairman for the 2010 election. As such, you will be an automatic member of your party's "central committee" (or whatever it is called in your state) for your county

That's where the real power is in America. That's where you have maximum leverage to get rid of your state's voting machines scheme. They say voting machines are efficient and paper ballots are "too expensive." Tell them that giving four corporations control over our vote is far more expensive. It will cost us our country.

Hurdle No. 2: Your Inaction

If you act, nothing can stand in your way for long. You will find your way through, over, under, or around any obstacle as long as you keep moving with the end in mind. It may take time, and it may take effort. It may bring disappointments with it - but consider the alternative!

Hurdle No. 3: Party Politics

Want to know the real definition of party politics? While you are busy taking the bait and fighting the "other side", your representatives in Congress are getting together to party. That's what party politics means to them.

There is an old saying that goes "when the cat is away, the mice are having a party." You are the cat. Your representatives are the mice. Currently, you are AWOL from the real political process, which is bull's eye politics. You are busy believing that it matter which party is in control of Congress. You are missing the point that, as long as ANY political party is in Control of anything at all, you are not.

Bull's Eye Secret No. 1: Do Not Fear the "Other Side"

There is no "other side" of the aisle. There is only us - and them. We are out here, while they who are in Congress populate both sides of the aisle. Do you get it? The left/right division is a fakeout so you will never hit the bullseye.

Fear and loathing of "the other side" is bred into us from birth. We are fed it with our mother's milk, are indoctrinated with it by TV, movies, the press, our schools, our friends and coworkers, etc. etc. throughout our lives. It is a political prison, a form of "hell" - but it is one that is easy to escape once you realize that you are in it.

The big secret is: it has no power over you! Unlike real prison, you can step out at any time. This is the profound secret the political/corporate establishment has kept from you for all of your life: you are really and truly free. You just have to start living, thinking, and acting like it. It's up to you.

Bull's Eye Secret No. 2: To Get there, You Have to Go All the Way!

Imagine you are dying of thirst in the desert, and you come upon an Oasis with plenty of water in a nice deep pool shaded by palm trees - but you stop short. You stop crawling just before you get to the water's edge. Does that make sense? No. Of course not - but that's what 99 percent of Americans do when it comes to politics.

They march, they conduct letter writing and emailing campaigns, they organize rallies, they get on radio talk shows, they jon parties or leave them or try to form new ones. hey want to reinstate the rule of law, abolish the US FED, get rid of the income tax, impose term limits, get us out of Iraq, you name it - but they stop short of the one thing that can actually accomplish what they want, and that one thing is holding Congressmen and Senators accountable for the unconstitutional bills they pass.

Don't stop short of the life-giving pool of freedom. Take that last step, no matter how tired or discouraged you are. Congressmen and Senators and state representatives don't fear rallies and campaigns and all that - but they all do fear a determined bunch of people who are committed to voting them out of office at the next election! There are no exceptions. They all fear that.

When you have politicians who fear you, you have accountability.

Bull's Eye Secret No. 3: You Have to Actually Do It - Not Just Threaten

Especially in close elections, every vote counts. If you withdraw your vote from your incumbent and give it to the challenger, you double the impact of your vote. If you get your frineds to do the same, you magnify it. If you organize effectively, you will blow your federal and state incumbent out of the water, guaranteed.

Then, rinse and repeat.

When they see the results, it will put the fear of God in them. If only fifty percent of Congress get booted out in 2010, you will see public hand wringing on TV and in the press. Pundits, bloggers, everyone will scream"what happened here?!" Nothing like this has ever happened in this country's entire history.

You know what the best thing is? There is nothing they can do about it. Nobody can tell you how to vote. Not Congress, not the president, not the Supreme Court. Nobody. Only you have the power of that decision - and it doesn't take much. Just punch your hole next to the opponent's name whenever you go vote.

That's all it takes. It is the easiest revolution in the world. It takes no time and it costs nothing. It only takes for you to change your mind - and act on it!

Now, go and do it. Lady Liberty herself is waiting for you at the voting booth. Don't make her cry anymore.
