Change in Military Funeral Protocol… � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL)

Change in Military Funeral Protocol… � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL):

..... His response was “The White House notified all military funeral service detachments to immediately remove ‘the President’ and insert ‘the Secretary of Defense’.

I couldn’t believe what I heard and the soldier smiled and said “You can draw your own conclusion sir but that was the order”. He, too, was ashamed of what he was required to say.

This president has taken off the gloves. My only response to this endless cesspool of Anti-American rhetoric dripping from his mouth is to borrow a phrase (with one minor change) uttered by another temporary Washington resident living in government housing: “Today for the first time in my adult life I was ASHAMED of my country”.

I did not serve in the military but my love of country parallels that of people like my late uncle who bled Red, White and Blue.

Welcome to Boston, Mr. Rumsfeld. You Are Under Arrest

Welcome to Boston, Mr. Rumsfeld. You Are Under Arrest:

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has been stripped of legal immunity for acts of torture against US citizens authorized while he was in office.

The 7th Circuit made the ruling in the case of two American contractors who were tortured by the US military in Iraq after uncovering a smuggling ring within an Iraqi security company. The company was under contract to the Department of Defense. The company was assisting Iraqi insurgent groups in the “mass acquisition” of American weapons. The ruling comes as Rumsfeld begins his book tour with a visit to Boston on Monday, September 26, and as new, uncensored photos of Abu Ghraib spark fresh outrage across Internet. Awareness is growing that Bush-era crimes went far beyond mere waterboarding.

Torture Room, Abu Ghraib


Republican Senator Lindsey Graham told reporters in 2004 of photos withheld by the Defense Department from Abu Ghraib, “The American public needs to understand, we’re talking about rape and murder here… We’re not just talking about giving people a humiliating experience.

We’re talking about rape and murder and some very serious charges.” And journalist Seymour Hersh says: “boys were sodomized with the cameras rolling. And the worst above all of that is the soundtrack of the boys shrieking that your government has.”..............

The End of the Phony Express, or: The USPS Goes Postal On Our Economy by Bill Walker

The End of the Phony Express, or: The USPS Goes Postal On Our Economy by Bill Walker:

The USPS employs a larger horde than Genghis Khan: 656,000 union members driving 260,000 vehicles. It is the second-largest employer in the United States after Wal-Mart.

It has a government-granted monopoly on first class mail. In 2007 an FTC report noted that the service does not pay taxes, including property tax on its 38,000 facilities; does not pay vehicle registration fees, and can borrow at subsidized interest rates from the U.S. Treasury.

And they do borrow… which is how they get away with claiming that they are "not subsidized". They don’t get subsidies (except in some years, when they do), they just get loans… and more loans… and more loans.

Maybe they should join up with Bank of America or Goldman Sachs and add subprime mortgages to their services at the stamp window..................

Obama Committed To America's Decline

Obama Committed To America's Decline:

No matter what the polls say, no matter how many elections fellow Democrats lose, no matter what his opposition says, or his allies for that matter, President Obama is committed to America's decline.

From his recycled speeches on jobs, to failed and suspect green energy policies, the man is committed to his ideology.

The schizophrenic once stated that the voices in his head told him he was sane and everyone else in the world is crazy. Obama is not schizophrenic, but he has the same delusional beliefs. America needs to be the next banana republic. He is convinced of his beliefs being right in spite of opposition to them. He feels that he can live like king, act like a prince, golf anytime he wants, and enjoy the most luxurious things in life, all while making sure the rest of us are treated differently. Rich or poor, upper, middle or lower class, we are all the bourgeois and proletariat to Obama.

Boatlifters: The unknown story of 9/11 | Journalist Profile | Reuters.com:

Much has been written and said about September 11, 2001, on the occasion of its 10th anniversary, but one story much less known is the one about the band of boats that came together to rescue nearly 500,000 New Yorkers from the World Trade Center site on the day the towers collapsed.

It was the largest boatlift ever to have happened – greater than the one at Dunkirk during World War II. Yet somehow a story of such large scale became lost in all the rubble. But a new 10-minute documentary called Boatlift by Eddie Rosenstein captures the boat evacuations that happened on 9/11. The film is part of four new short documentaries that were created for the 9/11 Tenth Anniversary Summit in Washington, D.C.

“Boats, usually an afterthought in most New Yorkers minds, were, for the first time in over a century, the only way in or out of lower Manhattan,” says Tom Hanks, the narrator of the film.

New Yorkers don’t really think of Manhattan as an island since everything from the basics to beyond your wildest imagination is so accessible — not typically a feature associated with island life. But on September 11, 2001, those trapped below the World Trade Center site who could not escape without swimming or being rescued by a boat were acutely reminded of that fact...........................

Prison Planet.com � A Message For The Government: Get Off Our Backs!

Prison Planet.com � A Message For The Government:

Get Off Our Backs!: Government in America has gotten completely and totally out of control. Our founding fathers originally intended to set up a nation where the power of government would be greatly limited, but today government has become a horribly bloated monster that is relentlessly growing.

It is not just the federal government that I am talking about. All over the country, there are state and local governments that have become monstrous as well. No matter who we elect, they just want even more of our money, they demand even more of our time and our resources, they pile even more rules and regulations on to our backs, they seek even more control over us and our children and they take even more of our liberties and freedoms away. They have invented hundreds of different ways to drain money out of us, and yet it is never enough.

They pile up nightmarish debts that they expect our children and our grandchildren to repay, and yet our cities and our infrastructure are crumbling all around us. Government seems to have a relentless appetite for demanding even more from all of us, and yet they seem to badly mess up everything that they try to accomplish.

Well, I have a message for the government. Get off our backs!........................

The 14 Most Corrupt Members of Congress

The 14 Most Corrupt Members of Congress:

Between Chris Lee's Craigslist escapades and Anthony Weiner's sexting, Congress has seen some high-profile ethical lapses this year.

While Lee and Weiner's transgressions cost them their seats, some of their colleagues have had better luck weathering scandals — including bribery scandals, tax fraud, letting an aide who once stabbed his girlfriend handle "women's issues."

Their offenses are detailed in the seventh annual list of the most corrupt members of Congress, released by the government watchdog Citizen's For Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW)

This year's list features a number of repeat offenders, as well as some freshman legislators who've already gotten themselves into dicey legal problems.

All told, CREW identified 14 lawmakers who engaged in well-documented, egregious acts in the past year. Questionable behavior from years past didn't count — which accounts for Charlie Rangel's conspicuous absent from the following list.

Suspicions hover around the same bad guys in-depth investigators keep unmasking again and again; such as: megalithic and destructive agricultural giants like Monsanto, big pharma and the Western medicine complex, and bioweaponry facilities – summarily, part of a collective that is desperately trying to become the new world government.

They are trying to demonize organic, raw food and alternative medicines, to bring about their own global control and regulation of the food supply chain and medical treatment. In the United States, Obama has recently appointed Michael Taylor, Monsanto’s VP and chief lobbyist, as senior adviser to the commissioner of the FDA.

Formerly, Taylor was policy chief of the FDA when GMO’s were allowed into the US food supply without undergoing a single test to determine their safety. On the bright side….the bad guys are not getting away with it unnoticed these days......................

Barack Obama: A Global Embarrassment

Barack Obama: A Global Embarrassment:

The president appeared weak, tired, and confused, due in part to the fact that his soaring oratory from 2010 has proven unsustainable, when compared to reality.

Scoundrels in Syria, North Korea, and Iran must have found hope in the president’s weakness. The obvious muting of American strength and preeminence will surely embolden the ‘bad guys’ to take greater risks, a fact that makes the world dramatically less safe than it was when Obama took office in 2009.

What will motivate Iran to abandon its quest of a nuclear weapon now that America is no longer interested or capable of providing effective opposition?

Why would North Korea bother to be more civil and accommodating now that the United States is run by a pacifist who prefers to ‘lead from behind’?........

.............. But just as his party moved quickly to leave him without his constituents, Paul's GOP competitors began sounding more and more like the congressman. "While we weren't watching," says Democratic consultant Stanford, "everyone became like Ron Paul over there on the Republican side."

That may be an exaggeration—on issues like foreign policy and the decriminalization of drugs, Paul remains on the fringe. Still, adopting the congressman's longstanding criticisms of New Deal and Great Society-era entitlement programs has become almost imperative for many of the other GOP candidates.

And such opposition has become closely identified with Perry's rising star, even as Paul faces the prospect of returning home from Washington to his house in Brazoria County—this time for good..........

Kelleigh Nelson -- The Constitutional Convention Con, Part 1:

The John Birch Society will be in attendance to present the dangers of a Constitutional Convention and what could happen to us. The JBS understands there are newly written constitutions waiting in the wings for just this opportunity.

Here is a look at one of them written over a period of 10 years at a cost of $25 million by the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations. It is called, The New States Constitution. It is written in an "obverse" style which means "forming a counterpart

As an example, Article I, Section 11 states, "Education shall be provided at public expense for those who meet appropriate test of eligibility." The "obverse" of this statement is just as important as the statement itself and means, "All education shall be at public expense."

In other words, all education will be government controlled and funded by taxpayer dollars, there will be no private schools that are not controlled by the federal government..................

Chuck Baldwin — War On Terror Or War On Freedom? � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL):

…..To refresh reader’s minds regarding how Americans have been labeled, profiled, and denigrated as “terrorists” because of their religious or political beliefs, please peruse the material on this web page.

Fortunately, it does appear that the combination of an emerging police state and a declining economy that has resulted from this “war on terror” is finally starting to catch the attention of the American people. According to a Brooking Institution report, “Six in ten Americans believe that that the United States weakened its economy by overspending in its responses to the 9/11 attacks. In particular, respondents felt this was especially true of the U.S. mission in Iraq. Two out of three Americans perceive that over the decade since 9/11, U.S. power and influence in the world has declined.”

A Rasmussen report further revealed, “As with the recent turmoil in Egypt, most Americans (67%) say the United States should leave the situation in the Arab countries alone.”

Immigration, the Republicans, and the End of White America

Immigration, the Republicans, and the End of White America:

The sources of America’s immigration problems—and a possible solution

Last June the U.S. Census disclosed that non-white births in America were on the verge of surpassing the white total and might do so as early as the end of this year. Such an event marks an unprecedented racial watershed in American history.

Over the last few years, various demographic projections from that same agency and independent analysts have provided somewhat fluctuating estimates of the date—perhaps 2042 or 2037 or 2050—at which white Americans will become a minority. This represents a remarkable, almost unimaginable, demographic change from our country of the early 1960s, when whites accounted for over 85 percent of the population and seemed likely to remain at that level indefinitely.

The truth is that it’s more than 13 months away from Nov. 6, 2012; there is no guarantee that all of the presidential candidates have stepped into the ring, and no candidate has yet been given standard bearer status by the easy to criticize, RINO-leaning GOP establishment.

But being at each other’s throats is not the place to be. All passion and energies should be focused on the freight train, gung ho for four more years to push the greatest country on earth over the abyss.

There is no cause more worthy of our time than the one that will rid the White House of bogus Barry Soetoro.

There can be only one reason for this refusal and we all know what that is: Proof of his legitimate citizenship does not exist.

It caught my eye because it was what I had been wondering what Obama would do since the unflattering poll numbers he has been garnering must surely be wounding his narcissism to the point of distraction. A man with an ego like his is bound to break and run from any diversity that he can’t control. His intelligence is obviously not in line with his egocentricities and he has to be suffering from great wounds to his pride.

Our permanent political establishment hopes that, with the help of an obsequious mainstream media, the public will forget the politicians’ complicity in the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people.

Ron Paul Can Win

Ron Paul Can Win:

It’s hard to tell if the idea that Ron Paul cannot win in 2012 is more ignorant, in its complete lack of historical sophistication, or more arrogant, in its claim to certainty amid all the complexity of 300 million lives and the myriad issues that affect them.

Sometimes, perhaps once in a few generations, a nation can undergo what a mathematician or physicist would call a “phase change.” The classic example of such a thing is a pile of sand. Every grain you add makes the pile slightly steeper and slightly higher without moving any of the other grains inside the pile, until eventually one grain is added that causes an avalanche of sand down the sides of the pile, moving thousand of grains and changing the shape of the pile.

Such behavior can be exhibited by all complex systems, and a nation — it should be obvious — is much more complex than a pile of sand.

The important point for those who would presume to make such grand predictions as “Dr. Paul cannot win” is that no examination of the pile of sand before the point of avalanche would tell you that, or when, the avalanche will eventually happen.

But happen it does; indeed, happen it must.

And there are numerous examples of abrupt and dramatic phase change in the politics of great nations......................

Comcast launches $10 internet access (updated)

Comcast launches $10 internet access (updated):

FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski and District of Columbia Public Schools Chancellor Kaya Henderson and Comcast Executive Vice President David L. Cohen this morning announced the official nationwide launch of "Internet Essentials," the program that will provide low-cost Internet services, affordable computers, and digital literacy training to families with children who are eligible for the National School Lunch Program.

"Broadband is our central platform in this 21st century for economic growth, innovation, and information. Broadband can be the great equalizer – giving every American with an Internet connection access to a world of new opportunities that might previously have been beyond their reach," FCC Chairman Genachowski said on Tuesday

. "But roughly 100 million Americans are being bypassed by the broadband revolution. That's 68% of Americans who aren't connected at home. Compare that to South Korea and Singapore where adoption rates top 90%. Low-income Americans and minorities disproportionately find themselves on the wrong-side of this digital divide."

Closing this digital divide is an important mission for government bodies like the FCC and NTIA, because opportunities in health care, education and employment are increasingly tied to an individual's access to the Internet.

Rep. Chris Gibson received a Ph.D. in government from Cornell University and numerous medals and awards from his military service

(Sep. 21, 2011) — Col. Chris Gibson (Ret.) is serving his first term in the U.S. House of Representatives from the 20th District of New York, which encompasses ten counties in the eastern/central region of New York State. Gibson campaigned against then-incumbent Scott Murphy (D) on a platform of fiscal discipline, opposition to socialized health care, and reviving the sagging U.S. economy.

As a result of the 2010 census and redistricting, New York will lose two seats in the House effective in 2013. New Jersey and Pennsylvania each lost one seat as a result of the census.

Rep. Gibson retired from the U.S. Army as a colonel in 2010 after having served four combat tours in Iraq and on deployments to Haiti and Kosovo. He has been a lifelong resident of the town of Kinderhook, which was settled by the Dutch in 1750 and established as a town in 1788.

It was named after Mahican Indian children who were seen on the shores of the river by Henry Hudson, after whom the river was later named. Hudson was an English explorer whose trip was financed by the Dutch East India Company……….

Dear Editor,

I do not understand how many news people and politicians in this country can claim that Obama is not disqualified to be President of the USA. It is so patently obvious that he has never been a Natural-Born American.

There are several famous personalities that are speaking out against Obama’s fraud: the star of Texas Rangers Chuck Norris, himself an honorary Texas Ranger; Gospel singer Pat Boone; and Victoria Johnson of Saturday Night live fame.

We the Ruled by Michael S. Rozeff ~ ("And the criminals who dominate us.")

We the Ruled by Michael S. Rozeff:

A government’s laws direct all those within its jurisdiction. They go further. They presume to "speak" for those under control: to say what is right and wrong, to say that this is what you shall do and shall not do, and to say what you may do and what you may not do. Still more, they say that this is what will be taken from you and what will be given to you.

Law-making is a great power, and we can expect that those in government are going to use it to advance their own interests. To some extent, law-makers attend to some complex mixture of our individual interests, but the reflection of what each of us wants as mirrored in the laws they produce is a highly distorted, usually unrecognizable, image. For all practical purposes, their interests are not "our" interests.

Therefore, let’s distinguish them the lawmakers from us the law-takers.

Economists speak of "price-takers". This is a person or company that, in making an exchange, is not influential enough to affect prices. I propose a similar concept in political matters. A "law-taker" is a person or company not influential enough to affect laws.

Most of us ordinary Americans are law-takers. Those who are not I call lawmake.................

…..Stromberg’s analysis of the importance of the Spanish-American War as a “trial run” for American imperialism is an astute analysis, but the real trial run actually occurred more than thirty years earlier during what Stromberg called the U.S. government’s war against “internal independent nations,” i.e., the Plains Indians.

That is where the real template of American imperialism was set, with its demonization of the Indians as inhuman “wild beasts”; the mass murder of everyone and everything, women, children, and animals included; and the policy of unconditional surrender. Indeed, it may even be argued that the War to Prevent Southern Independence was inself a “trial run” for the twenty-five year war on the Plains Indians.

As soon as the War to Prevent Southern Independence was concluded the U.S. government commenced a new war against the Plains Indians................

Obama

Obama:

The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president...............

Michelle Obama dazzles in New York, wearing diamond bangles by H-Town's Katie Decker

That was no ordinary bling on the wrist of First Lady Michelle Obama at the DNC fundraiser in New York Tuesday night. Those fancy diamond cuffs were the creation of 23-year-old Katie Decker, whose namesake jewelry line has been making a serious splash since her graduation from Texas A&M two years ago.

The American Dream
Sept 22, 2011

Government in America has gotten completely and totally out of control.  Our founding fathers originally intended to set up a nation where the power of government would be greatly limited, but today government has become a horribly bloated monster that is relentlessly growing.  It is not just the federal government that I am talking about. 

All over the country, there are state and local governments that have become monstrous as well.  No matter who we elect, they just want even more of our money, they demand even more of our time and our resources, they pile even more rules and regulations on to our backs, they seek even more control over us and our children and they take even more of our liberties and freedoms away.  They have invented hundreds of different ways to drain money out of us, and yet it is never enough.

Dave Daubenmire -- Christianity’s Prevent Defense:

Athletics is a game…life is life-and-death…and many parents invest all of their energy in things that really are of little importance. “Straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel” is how Jesus described much of our lives.

The more football one watches the more he tends to believe that he is an expert in strategy. These are the guys who are known as “armchair quarterbacks” because they love to make decisions from the safety of their living room. Most fans love to practice “20-20 hindsight”….describing to anyone who will listen how he would have done it…once the play is over. My coaching experience tells me that second-guessing is a lot easier than first-guessing. Believe me; after the play is over I know if the call had been a good one. The last thing I need is some guy with a Budweiser and pizza stains on his shirt explaining to me what I should have done.

The Constitutional Convention Con ~ by Kelleigh Nelson...

The Constitutional Convention Con

When the gavel fell on the first and only Constitutional Convention which took place in 1787, the delegates proceeded to disregard Congress' preset agenda, a limited agenda that was given to them calling for modification only of the Articles of Confederation which were in force at that time. 

They threw out the Articles of Confederation, i.e. they threw out the existing government at that time, and they wrote a whole new Constitution......
