Prison Planet.com � Ron Paul: No FEMA response necessary:

GILFORD, N.H. — After a lunch speech today, Ron Paul slammed the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, and said that no national response to Hurricane Irene is necessary.

“We should be like 1900; we should be like 1940, 1950, 1960,” Paul said. “I live on the Gulf Coast; we deal with hurricanes all the time. Galveston is in my district.

“There’s no magic about FEMA. They’re a great contribution to deficit financing and quite frankly they don’t have a penny in the bank. We should be coordinated but coordinated voluntarily with the states,” Paul told NBC News. “A state can decide. We don’t need somebody in Washington.”

BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984( ): LINCOLN'S MARXISTS by Al Benson, Jr. and Walter Kennedy

BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984( ): LINCOLN'S MARXISTS by Al Benson, Jr. and Walter Kennedy:

The Republican Party roots are, without a doubt, embedded in Communism. Their second candidate for office, Mr. Lincoln's actions prove his acceptance of all Communism could give him. When one compares the works of Adolph Hitler with those of Lincoln, their commonalities become shockingly evident.


The Communist 1848ers arrived in America. And thus began the story of lies that exploded into the bloodiest, most unnecessary war our America has ever known. Even in this year of 2011 there remains an unending story full of sound and fury signifying the deliberate, cold-blooded murder of American women and children, the murder of imprisoned Confederate soldiers and the U.S. Constitution. Today it has an added "New World Order," twist which is pro- United Nations, pro-hedonism, anti-Christian-anti-God, anti-family, the anti states-right, and, of course anti-Constitution.


Benson and Kennedy, clearly and succinctly -without any fanciful literary pirouetting, present the facts, prove the relationships of the Marxist-Communists with dishonest, obviously non-Christian Abe Lincoln.........

What A D*ck! Man Flashes Weather Channel Cameras In Virginia Beach

What A D*ck! Man Flashes Weather Channel Cameras In Virginia Beach:

“I’m pretty much speechless at what we’ve been seeing,” said the Weather Channel’s Eric Fisher as he struggled against Hurricane Irene’s winds at Virginia Beach. However, the thing that was shocking him wasn’t the weather as much as the tons of people he saw wandering around, seemingly not caring about the huge storm they were in the middle of. And then, as if to accentuate his point, a bunch of young men in bathing suits (who had apparently started the rained in drinking a little early) ran by and one dropped his shorts to give national audiences a view of his storm front.

As Fisher continued trying to explain just how dangerous this storm really is, you have to hope nothing bad will happen to this young man. After all, that image above would be a terrible last known photograph......

Gunny G's Marines History and Traditions: Book Review: O'Hara's Choice, by Leon Uris...: Note:


Addendum...

Reviewers have noted that Uris has taken liberty in his last book with certain historic facts; one liberty taken, but not as yet noted--that I have seen--is his use of the rank of MGySgt, which did not yet exist during the time frame of the book.

The Rank of Gunnery Sergeant came into existence in the Marine Corps in 1898, and it was not until 1934-37 that the grade of MGySgt was added. The MGySgt disappeared from the Marine Corps rank structure, as did the rank of GySgt, in 1946, not to reappear again until another rank structure change in 1959.

Obama invokes Sept 11 attacks in call for service

Obama invokes Sept 11 attacks in call for service:

President Barack Obama urged Americans on Saturday to recall the spirit that united the country after the Sept. 11 attacks and take part in a national day of service to mark the anniversary next month.

In remarks acknowledging the "great challenges" that confront the US economy, and could hurt his reelection chances next year, Obama also sought to rise above the partisan political rancor that has divided Washington all summer.

Mars Attacks: Scientists Say Aliens May Destroy Mankind Over Global Warming

Mars Attacks: Scientists Say Aliens May Destroy Mankind Over Global Warming:

Three years after the release of the remake The Day the Earth Stood Still, a team of American researchers has made the film’s theme a scientific theory:

They are suggesting that an alien race might destroy man to stop our release of greenhouse-gas emissions and global warming.

Writes Fox News:

The thought-provoking scenario is one of many envisaged in a joint study by Penn State and the NASA Planetary Science Division, entitled "Would Contact with Extraterrestrials Benefit or Harm Humanity? A Scenario Analysis."

It divides projected close encounters into "neutral," those that cause mankind "unintentional harm" and, more worryingly, those in which aliens do us "intentional harm."

While the idea of meeting our end at the green hands of anti-CO2 aliens may be more laugh-provoking than thought-provoking, another scenario in the harmful category is only slightly less amusing. Writes The Guardian, “They [the extraterrestrials] might invite humanity to join the 'Galactic Club' only for the entry requirements to be too bureaucratic and tedious for humans to bother with.”

Call this the Barack Obama Scenario.

Christian Professor Claims Genetics Disproves Historical Adam

Christian Professor Claims Genetics Disproves Historical Adam:

National Public Radio recently interviewed Trinity Western University biologist Dennis Venema, who stated his belief that humans did not descend from Adam and Eve.1 Venema, an evangelical evolutionist, claimed that genetics studies show "there is no way we can be traced back to a single couple."2 Do the data really contradict the biblical account of human history?

"Given the genetic variation of people today, [Venema] says scientists can't get that [starting] population size below 10,000 people at any time in our evolutionary history," NPR reported.2 But this claim fails for three reasons. First, it relies on the presumption of "evolutionary history," not scientific data.

Second, the idea that an initial group of 10,000 humans evolved from primates is mathematically impossible. Third, a descent from Adam and Eve actually does explain the patterns in modern human genetics....

How Should We Treat the Muslims in Our Midst?

How Should We Treat the Muslims in Our Midst?:

LIVING AMONG US, we have many Muslims who are undoubtedly as innocent of terrorism, political subversion, and Islamic supremacism as we are.

But we have a problem, don't we? These innocent fellow countrymen — and the terrorists, subversives, and supremacists — all call themselves "Muslims.".................


Many non-Muslims explain the situation to themselves that "there are extremists in every religion" and let it go at that. But those of us who have studied Islamic doctrine and Islamic history have discovered that "letting it go at that" would be a big mistake.

And of course, those who simply look at the news can see that there must be something about Islam that produces more "extremists" than other religions...........

RIP, Fairness Doctrine:

The Fairness Doctrine’s burial likely won’t mean the end of attempts to stifle free speech. “While the letter of the law is now dead, we want to ensure that the spirit of this particular law also remains dead,” said Dr. Frank Wright, president and CEO of the National Religious Broadcasters.

Gunny G's Marines History and Traditions: WHY THE TITLE "GLOBE and ANCHOR"?

Gunny G's Marines History and Traditions: WHY THE TITLE "GLOBE and ANCHOR"?: WHY THE TITLE "GLOBE and ANCHOR"?
Many have asked why I have not indicated, eagle, globe and anchor, rather than just "GLOBE and ANCHOR," implying that I have erred. No error, it reads as I intended. Apparently unknown to most Marines of today, there was a time in the Corps when Marines referred to their emblem (EMBLEM, not "ega"--but that's yet another story) as simply the "Globe and Anchor," and there are still some old timers and writers around who use the term. There are many writings available, most of them older writings, but some more recent, where you will find this. One of the best examples of this, perhaps, may be--and there are many more--a quote in the recent book by Colonel Jon T. Hoffman, USMCR, Chesty. It reads as follows:

"Colonel Robert D. Heinl, the premier historian of the Old Corps and a former subordinate of Puller, believed that Chesty was one of the greatest raconteurs that ever wore the Globe and Anchor."
(Random House, 2001, Preface, page xi)

Globe and Anchor was still a common expression even in this old boot's first days in the Corps of the early 1950s. (I find the term similar to........................

The Obama Broadcasting Corporation

The Obama Broadcasting Corporation:

...........................The invaluable website Opensecrets.org, which lives up to its name, yesterday noted that Comcast employees – led by Roberts and his executive team, I would imagine – are bigger donors to Obama than any other company.

By far. They’ve given even more to Obama’s reelection effort than any Hollywood company or even Berkshire Hathaway, whose Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett has become a virtual economic spokesman for the White House.

So let’s imagine you are an NBC reporter, and you are thinking of doing a tough story on Obama – I know it seems unlikely, but stay with me here – and then you remember that YOUR BOSS JUST HAD OBAMA OVER TO HIS HOUSE IN MARTHA’S VINEYARD.

And Obama went to him, not the reverse. Are you really going to do a piece that will piss off both the White House and your employer?

But you don’t want to be tagged as just another liberal reporter. You actually want to try to uphold some of the traditional standards of journalism. So maybe you decide to do a piece on Nancy Pelosi, or even some lesser administration figure like Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner.

But not Obama. Because you are reporting for the Obama Broadcasting Corporation, and you know it............

The Racism and Sedition of Obama's Black Nationalism

The Racism and Sedition of Obama's Black Nationalism:

This channel is about informing people of the racism, sedition and bigotry of Obama's Black Nationalism, which is Nazi-like in its racial concept. Read the books by James H. Cone on Black Liberation Theology to verify this. Jeremiah Wright declared on national television that Black Liberation Theology is the doctrine of Obama's church in Chicago. Nothing else was taught there, certainly not traditional Christianity, which Black Liberation Theology holds is apostate.

The doctrine of Obama's pseudo-Christian church is based on that of the Nation of Islam, which is also not orthodox Islam, but a cult-like, black Gnostic religious sect. Read the books by Elijah Muhammad to see the similarities in the beliefs of the two groups.

How Obama Spent His Summer Vacation The strangest PR debacle of a weird presidency.

How Obama Spent His Summer Vacation The strangest PR debacle of a weird presidency.:

Barack Obama​’s misadventures in Martha’s Vineyard are some of the stranger unforced public-relations errors in recent memory. Spending a fortune to jet off to a fabled playground of the rich, while the country suffers from his recessionary economic policies, was a bizarre slap in the face to an electorate that has already come to view this President as arrogant and out-of-touch. “Optics” matter. Camp David is a nice vacation spot, too.

Naturally, Obama played a lot of golf on vacation. Part of the problem with skipping off to the golf course so frequently is that when he plays a lot of golf on vacation, he gets heat for it. Upon learning that Obama “played the trifecta” by hitting all three of the big golf courses in Martha’s Vineyard, Downgrade America finds itself wondering how much that costs.

The snarky White House response of asking about Speaker John Boehner’s handicap was a disaster. It’s childish, it keeps people talking about the President’s incessant putting, it diminishes the stature of an office we like to think of as uniquely important, and it puts Obama in the middle of a very large glass house with stones in his hands.

Obama’s ineligibility: Prepare to defend America – Defeating the political-media complex

Obama’s ineligibility:

Prepare to defend America – Defeating the political-media complex:

The political-media complex is the operational arm of the multinational, wealthy and networked elite, who have hired Barack Hussein Obama as President of the United States.

In their service, politicians have preserved the illusion of democracy for the now disenfranchised voters, and journalists, falsely proclaiming themselves as the tireless defenders of liberty, distort the news in an attempt to manipulate public opinion.

Lapham writing on the state of free enterprise:

“At their annual conventions they sometimes make brave speeches about the joys of “risk taking” and the wonders of “entrepeneurship”, but what they know and trust is the rigged price, the safe monopoly, the sure percentage. By and large, and certainly in its primary and steadier movements, the national economy depends not only on systematic price-fixing and noncompetitive bidding but also on the guarantee of government intervention. The theory of the free market works at the margins of the economy - among cabdrivers and the owners of pizza parlors who made the mistake of borrowing $20,000 instead of $20 million - but the central pillars of the American enterprise rest…firmly on the foundation stones of federal subsidy…”

GE Stabs the US in the Back

GE Stabs the US in the Back:

In 1876 Thomas Alva Edison opened a laboratory in Menlo Park, New Jersey, for the purposes of exploring how to produce and distribute electricity.

History records that he invented the incandescent electric light bulb there. By 1890, he had established the Edison General Electric Company, now know simply as GE.

In 2011, Jeffrey Immelt, the CEO of GE and the chairman of President Obama’s “Jobs Council” is eliminating jobs for American employees of GE at a furious pace. To add insult to injury, in 2010 GE paid no federal taxes at all despite worldwide profits of $14.2 billion. GE claimed a tax benefit of $2.3 billion.

From an America corporate icon to an American disgrace, GE epitomizes how federal policies, cronyism, and rent seeking is destroying America from within by avoiding taxes and shipping jobs overseas. Keep in mind, none of this is illegal. It is, however, unconscionable.

A recent article at EconomicCollapse.com took a look at the way GE is “moving jobs and economic infrastructure to China at a blistering pace.”

For example, “GE makes more medical-imaging machines than anyone else in the world and now GE has announced that it is ‘moving the headquarters of its 115-year-old X-ray business to Beijing.”........................

Creating the Candidate:

Remember how Newt Gingrich was effective and chosen because of the Promise to America? For the next president, the man/woman will win if he/she promises, like Gingrich with his 100 promises to America, to do the following.

1. Abolish the EPA
2. Abolish the NEA
3. Do away with the Federal Reserve
4. Go back on the Gold Standard to stabilize the monetary system
5. Restore the entire intent of the Constitution and keep it intact
6. Guarantee that American Citizens have “standing” before the courts
7. Promote government workers to be productive and not merely “managerial”
8. Educate people that government is separate from religion but religion is not necessarily separate from government
9. Force the FCC to investigate the media to ascertain and enforce that they are “fair and balanced” and not in some “foxy” way
10. (Whatever else that is required to put the country back on course and undo the Obama madness)

Canada Free Press: Online conservative newspaper, News, Politics, Editorials:

In accordance with the law, the Executive Branch must document annually the number of new regulatory actions it plans for the coming year. The Administration’s current regulatory agenda has 4,257 new regulatory actions. At least 219 will have an economic impact of $100 million or more. That is an increase of nearly 15 percent over last year when it had 191. Americans have heard the Administration stating that some of these new economically significant regulations will have an economic impact of tens of billions of dollars.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) sent a letter today, August 26, 2011, to President Obama, asking the White House to provide Congress before it returns this fall, with a list of all regulatory actions that would have an economic impact of $1 billion or more.

Boehner sent a similar request for information last August 16, 2010 when he was the House Republican leader. The requested data was never provided........................

Republican Party Dream Candidate by Jim Cox and James W. Harris


The Republican Party is desperately seeking a candidate who can unseat Barack Obama.

What qualifications would the ideal candidate have? How about these?

1. He should bring to mind popular past Republican presidents and leaders, to prove his authenticity and excite the Republican base.

2. At the same time, he should be able to win the support of a large number of Independents and disaffected Democrats.

3. He must provide a sharp and positive contrast to Obama. The country is souring on Obama – polls show him at all-time lows. Obama’s youth, once appealing to voters as freshness, is now looking more and more like inexperience and uncertainty. A mature GOP candidate, with successful experience inside and outside of politics, would provide a sharp and appealing contrast.

4. He must have a solid record of foresight on the economy. As in past elections, the phrase "It's the economy, stupid" may decide the election.

5. His message should excite and motivate the increasing number of voters looking for a limited government, pro-Constitution candidate.

6. Above all, of course, the candidate must have a genuine shot at beating Barack Obama.

We have such a candidate before us – Ron Paul. Consider:

1. More than any other GOP candidate, he.........

Ron Paul Owns Millions in Gold Interests (Portfolio amounts to huge bet against the US economy)

Ron Paul Owns Millions in Gold Interests (Portfolio amounts to huge bet against the US economy):

..............In his most recent financial disclosure, which covers the year 2010, Paul had $1.6 million to $3.5 million in gold-mining stocks. He also has a stake in three bear-market funds--and has for many years.

In all, Ron Paul's portfolio amounts to a super-bearish bet against the U.S. economy. If the country had defaulted on its debt earlier this month, he likely would have made a bundle. The congressman voted against House Speaker John Boehner's [R-Ohio] plan to lift the nation's $14.3 trillion spending cap.

Rick Perry, the Republicans’ Messiah? By Kathleen Parker, Friday, August 26.

Rick Perry’s rapid lead over previous Republican front-runner Mitt Romney was predictable. But it is not a good sign for Republicans hoping to reclaim the White House and further highlights the crucial battle within GOP circles: Who is the godliest of us all?

That’s the mirror-mirror question for Republicans. Forget charisma, charm, intelligence, knowledge and that nuisance, “foreign policy experience.” The race of the moment concerns which candidate is the truest believer.

Paul: I think it is an outrage I think it is a blockade. It is the use of force to stop the inflow of petroleum products and people and goods, banking, trains, cars, trucks, cargos. It's all prohibited. How can we stop that without the use of the navy and without the use of force? This idea is not a blockade it is just pure silliness on their part [US senators and congressmen].

RETHINKING THE INF TREATY [John Bolton]

RETHINKING THE INF TREATY [John Bolton]:

Recent advancements in missile technology by untrustworthy regimes like Iran and North Korea should prompt retooling of a key Cold War-era treaty, two leading arms control experts have argued.

The Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty signed by the U.S. and USSR in 1988 "has far outlived its usefulness in its current form — so it should either be changed or thrown out," write former Undersecretary of State John Bolton and Assistant Secretary of State Paula DeSutter in an op-ed in the August 15th Wall Street Journal. The agreement successfully drew down Soviet and U.S. nuclear arsenals by outlawing ground-launched ballistic missiles between 500 and 5,500 kilometers in range.

But, Bolton and DeSutter point out, since the end of the Cold War "nations not covered by the treaty have been steadily increasing their missile capabilities, especially in the intermediate ranges." The result is a growing list of nations that threaten U.S. interests, allies and deployed forces.

So what can be done? "To reduce the threat from INF-range missiles," the authors say, "we must either expand the INF Treaty's membership or abrogate it entirely so that we can rebuild our own deterrent capabilities."..............

There is no Florida law that prohibits light-flashing, said Oviedo attorney J. Marcus Jones. He claims officers are simply twisting a law that was designed to prohibit drivers from adding after-market emergency lights to their vehicles.

When officers write those tickets, he said, they violate a driver's constitutional right to free speech. If motorists want to flash their lights to warn about a speed trap ahead, they are free to do so, according to his suit.
