Obama Blinks by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

Obama Blinks by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.:

...But now, with Obama’s announcement, we see the proverbial turn on the dime. He and his administration are admitting that their program is a drain, a burden, an unwelcome presence, a hobbler of prosperity.

That is the implication, and that is really the only conclusion that one can draw from this announcement. It pretty much upends a major claim of the interventionists.

And why is he doing this? Well, look at the polls. It’s a disaster right now for Obama’s presidency.

And look at the economy. It is not growing; it’s shrinking. It’s almost like this combination of political and economic disaster has finally awakened the administration to reality.

This whole thing reminds me of an event in Austria following World War I..............................

“The Tea party is a Godly Ordained Party.”- Rev.O’Neal Dozier

“The Tea party is a Godly Ordained Party.”- Rev.O’Neal Dozier:

After a string of racially charged remarks made by the Democrat members of the Black Congressional Caucus, Congressman Allen West is reconsidering his membership to the caucus, and Tea Party groups across the nation are up in arms about the derogatory racial charged references directed towards them. This weekend in Florida, the Fort Lauderdale Tea Party-longest running Tea party in the country- held a press conference to voice their opposition to members of the Black Congressional Caucus, and ask for them to step down.

Representative Andre Carson (D-IN) is on record of saying “Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now with this Tea Party movement would love to see you and me … hanging on a tree.” The group also called out for Congressman West to immediately denounce and leave the Caucus.

Reverend O’Neal Dozier, Pastor of the World Wide Christian Center Church in Pompano Beach, Florida, made a compelling and profound case defending the Tea Party and stated that “the Tea party is a Godly ordained party.” Dozier also adds that the leftists Democrat party are the racists, not the Tea party.

Letters of Marque and Reprisal by Fred E. Foldvary, Senior Editor � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL)

Letters of Marque and Reprisal by Fred E. Foldvary, Senior Editor � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL):

In October 2001, Ron Paul, U.S. representative from Texas, introduced bills H.R. 3074, Air Piracy Reprisal and Capture Act of 2001, and H.R. 3076, September 11 Marque and Reprisal Act of 2001, to authorize the U.S. State Department to issue such Letters. Private U.S. citizens would then be able to hunt down, attack and collect assets from terrorists who have or are planning to commit hostile acts against the U.S. and its citizens. (See Ron Paul’s Press Release.)

The Founders of the U.S. Constitution included Marque and Reprisal in addition to authorizing Congress to declare war, so that in some cases, the U.S. government would not have to engage the military and have a costly war. The risk would then be concentrated on those who chose to engage in the reprisal. This empowers private citizens to protect themselves and other Americans.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Letters of Marque and Reprisal by Fred E. Foldvary, Senior Editor � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL):

One alternative to U.S. military action against terrorists who have attacked the U.S. and other countries, and are threatening further attacks, is to enact Letters of Marque and Reprisal. Article I, Section 8, paragraph 11 of the U.S. Constitution authorizes Congress to “grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make rules concerning captures on land and water.”

A “reprisal” means an action taken in return for some injury. A reprisal could be a seizing of property or guilty persons in retaliation for an attack and injury. It could include forced used against the perpetrators for the redress of grievances. A reprisal could even involve killing a terrorist who is threatening further harm and cannot be captured.

“Marque” is related to “marching” and means crossing or marching across a border in order to do a reprisal. So a Letter of Marque and Reprisal would authorize a private person, not in the U.S. armed forces, to conduct reprisal operations outside the borders of the U.S.A.

Such Letters are grantable not just by the U.S. Constitution, but also by international law, which is why.....................

AP: Tea party bulling its way into 2012 GOP race

AP: Tea party bulling its way into 2012 GOP race:

Bulling its way into 2012, the tea party is shaping the race for the GOP presidential nomination as candidates parrot the movement's language and promote its agenda while jostling to win its favor.

That's much to the delight of Democrats who are working to paint the tea party and the eventual Republican nominee as extreme.

"The tea party isn't a diversion from mainstream Republican thought. It is within mainstream Republican thought," Mitt Romney told a New Hampshire newspaper recently, defending the activists he's done little to woo, until now.

The former Massachusetts governor is starting to court them more aggressively as polls suggest he's being hurt by weak support within the movement, whose members generally favor rivals such as Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann.

Romney's shift is the latest evidence of the big imprint the tea party is leaving on the race.

Such overtures come with risks, given that more Americans are cooling to the tea party's unyielding tactics and bare-bones vision of the federal government.

Is Obama’s Remaining Popularity Due to Political Correctness Masquerading as Civil Religion?

III. Political Correctness as Civil Religion

So how is Political Correctness defined? It is Marxist doctrine smuggled into social settings. Bill Lind explains,

Political Correctness is cultural Marxism. It is Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms. It is an effort that goes back to World War I. If we compare the basic tenets of Political Correctness with classical Marxism the parallels are very obvious.

In other words, the PC movement only exists as a Trojan Horse to interject crippling, alien beliefs into America. But it does come in to add socialist values into the American ethos.

Liberals now calling the ATF expendable. � Coach is Right

Liberals now calling the ATF expendable. � Coach is Right: In order to prevent further “Fast and Furious” damage to the Obama Regime, it appears the left is ready to pull the plug on one of its favorite exponents of Constitutional abuse:

the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

Since ATF agent-turned-whistle-blower John Dodson went to Senator Charles Grassley with the true story of the Obama Administration’s “Gunwalking” scheme, congressional investigations and diligent reporting by the blogosphere have threatened to upend the President, Attorney General Eric Holder and a host of Regime operatives, all up to their necks in the politics of murder.
