After making her wait 8 hours, the Clark County, Nevada Commission decided to hear Daphne Lee speak against the NDAA. What followed was one of the most powerful public comments in history.
Barack Hussein Obama shut out our own veterans—many of them war heroes—from their own war memorials, while opening up the same memorials to illegals and socialists. He has sent out thousands of letters to veterans mandating that they turn in their weapons and ammunition if the VA terms them “incompetent.” Obama has deemed the Tea Party and conservatives—anyone who doesn’t go along with his big government policies—as “domestic terrorists.” These “domestic terrorists” under the NDAA can be imprisoned indefinitely without due process. He has directed the military to deem all Christians as part of “domestic hate groups.” He has fought tooth and nail to disarm these “domestic terrorists”—conservatives—of their guns, while at the same time buying up billions of rounds of ammunition, thousands of assault weapons, and a trainload of armored vehicles and light-armored tanks.
As shocking as it sounds, the only logical explanation for these series of events is that Barack Hussein Obama is planning a war—an actual Civil War—between a totalitarian regime and veterans, conservatives, and Christians.
If that is the case, the imminent collapsing economy that Obama is pushing us towards—with an unprecedented $17 trillion debt—is only one part of a sinister plan to get rid of his enemies once and for all.
(The following was posted in response to an excellent article at yesterday’s Freedom Outpost website. It is entitled “67 Million Missing from ObamaCare Slush Fund.”)
While this is just business as usual for our flagrantly illegitimate and abusive “administration,” our outrage here should be with the Republicans whom we continue to elect to “represent” us. They do not. Is there any reason why we should have to email or call them to ASK them to do something about this? If we had a mid-level manager in a company we owned, who was involved with the budget, and he didn’t become irate over something like this, he would be summarily dismissed.
This is true of dozens of issues – Benghazi, the IRS Tea Party Prosecution Scandal, Voter Fraud in the last election, the “Justice” Department’s openly-announced refusal to enforce DOMA (or to investigate Black-on-White voter intimidation or crime), Fast and Furious, Trayvon Martin (with civil unrest actually being fomented by OUR government over this patent fraud), the “Arab Spring” (unrest being fomented by OUR State Department with the help of Google – all to put the Muslim Brotherhood in power), the NDAA, Homeland “Security” buying billions of rounds of high caliber ordinance, FEMA Camps all over the nation, the militarizing of our police, the institution of Martial Law (Boston), the illegal NSA gathering of personal information on every U.S. Citizen, the intimidation and prosecution of whistleblowers, the failure to protect our borders or prosecute illegal aliens, the absolute and abusive invasion of privacy and charade of Airport “security,” and the patent absurdity of disarming our soldiers on our own military bases, while refusing to prosecute (much less punish) those who slaughter our soldiers (in the name of Allah) as a result, even refusing to call it an act of terror. I could go on and on, and all of this is just off the top of my head!
WHAT ARE ANY OF OUR REPUBLICAN “REPRESENTATIVES” DOING ABOUT ANY OF THIS? You know the answer, don’t you? And they shouldn’t need to be told or begged to do any of it. Once more, this would be grounds for dismissal if an employee at any level didn’t address such obvious outrages on his or her watch!
Time for a Third Party. The People and their (our) Constitution are no longer being represented. Notice that the GOP is now attacking Ted Cruz, one of only three GOP Senators worth their salt (Lee and Paul being the other two). The GOP would be laughable if they weren’t specifically there to enrich themselves at the People’s expense. That being the case (and it is a matter of public record for the members of BOTH parties), it is absolutely time to change horses!
The time for compromising the Rule of Law, while simultaneously tolerating the abuse of it – by those sworn to uphold it – is past. The GOP is dead! Only the clinically insane would continue to vote for these people while expecting them to do something different from what they have ALWAYS done!
Has John Boehner represented us after WE gave him a clear majority in the House? To this day, he is cutting deals with our illegal “president” over ObamaCare, in direct opposition to our clearly-expressed will! His performance is disgraceful…and yet the newly-elected and numerically-strengthened Republican Majority immediately re-elected him as their “leader” upon being swept into office by US, the true Conservatives, eleven months ago! The Republican Congress may be the only group of people on Earth more comatose than those of us who continue to elect them!
We must not expect that those who feel the need to compromise their message when campaigning (to appease the Left and their media minions) will somehow feel (and do) otherwise once elected. We need men and women – and a PARTY – who are willing to speak the whole truth and stand by it, KNOWING two things: That the now-Marxist “Mainstream” (please!) Media, receiving its marching orders from Soros and surrogates, will seek to destroy them, while REAL Americans will unanimously stand by them!
Only by speaking and standing by the truth will we be free. There is no other way. Only the Brave are willing to do so, however…and that starts with US…yep, you and me. The ONLY thing that matters in the short or long term is that WE be willing to speak and stand by the truth – individually first, then collectively – simply because it is the RIGHT thing to do. Until we do, we will continue to be “represented” by people who are also unwilling to do so!
This isn’t complicated….

“I’m less concerned about style points. I’m much more concerned with getting the policy right…” – Barack Obama
This statement he made in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos is something that has stuck with me the past few days. This president is so obsessed with style over substance that “style” has been considered his only strong suit. This is why his “likability” has been so high with people – he’s a nice guy. That is how he has gotten to where he is today without accomplishing anything of substance.
Obama’s first foray onto the national stage happened at the 2004 Democratic Convention when he made such an electrifying speech that people were starstruck. It was the style points of that speech that catapulted him from an obscure Senatorial candidate to a future president.
However, when you compare the style of that speech to the substance of his presidency, you will see an entirely different picture.
“…summed up in a declaration made over two hundred years ago: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness…”
“…that we can say what we think, write what we think, without hearing a sudden knock on the door…”
Yet, Obama has signed the NDAA into law (allowing for the indefinite detention of Americans based on who he decides is a terrorist, which would include those who speak out against his policies.) He wants to decide who is a journalist under the protection of the First Amendment and who is not.
“…that we can participate in the political process without fear of retribution…”
“…they don’t expect government to solve all of their problems…” and “…They know they have to work hard to get a head …”
I’ll wait for you to stop laughing.
“…They don’t want their tax money wasted by a welfare agency…”
Yet, the number of people on food stamps has never been higher. Obama even advertised it as your right to be on it. The number of people on disability would constitute the eighth most populous state in the union.
“…where hard work is rewarded…”
Obama reminded everyone who believed that hard work would pay off that they “didn’t build that. It was someone else.”
“…all Americans can afford the same health coverage our politicians in Washington have for themselves…”
Yet, Obama exempted himself and members of Congress from Obamacare.
Obama halted the Keystone Pipeline, halted offshore drilling in America for five years while paying for it in Brazil, and paid for failure after failure in the green energy industry with taxpayer money.
“…ever go to war without enough troops to win the war, secure the peace …”
McChrystal did not get the number of troops he needed to win in Afghanistan. Libya, Egypt, and Syria are all consumed with violence as Obama chooses to support the Muslim Brotherhood and the rebels with known ties to al Qaeda.
“…and earn the respect of the world…”
Ahmadinejad called him an “amateur politician”, Putin declared him “pathetic”, and Assad has already missed the first deadline in the proposed chemical weapons deal. This is Obama’s reputation on the world stage.
“…These enemies must be found. They must be pursued. And they must be defeated…”
Benghazi – Nothing else needs to be said.
“…there’s not a liberal America and a conservative America; there’s the United States of America…”
That Obama wants to fundamentally transform into something it is not.
“…There’s not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America…”
Obama will go down in history as the most racially divisive president in history.
“…We worship an awesome God…”
While Obama declares that the U.S. is not a Christian nation.
“…pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes…”
Whereas Obama’s supporters have said that everyone should pledge allegiance to him – not the flag.
“…I’m talking about something more substantial…”
Exactly what accomplishment of substance has he done?

The MSM is no longer the only propaganda machine for the Obama regime. With the demise of the restriction on propaganda, broadcasting to citizens from our own government has been repealed. The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012, buried deep within the last National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for 2013, now allows our dissembler-in-chief to broadcast propaganda directly to American citizens.
It went live on July 2nd. This will be a day that will demarcate the death of the Republic as Obama can now move forward with whatever agenda he wishes and will not have to worry about what the MSM says, does, or broadcasts; he has his own taxpayer-funded machine.
This can only inflame an already disquieted population and proves beyond a shadow of doubt the complicity of Congress with his agenda. It follows that this latest piece of legislation fits nicely with the IRS, NSA, and DOJ initiatives to stifle all opposition to the Obama agenda and can be used to shape public opinion that is turning decidedly oppressive, dictatorial, and capricious.
Curious that this law took effect shortly after all these scandals came to light, with even the MSM reporting on them? This is a wholesale abrogation of our founding principles as found in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution (and can only further the goals of tyranny.)
We’ve known that Russian troops have been in America for some time, allegedly being trained by American troops. Now it appears that FEMA has entered into an agreement with the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry. The reason is ostensibly to “provide security at mass events in the United States.”
Remember all those articles on the Obama Administration questioning whether or not military commanders would be willing to use live ammunition to fire on American citizens on American soil? You also probably remember the articles about Sheriffs throughout the United States who have publicly stated that they would not support any laws they believe are unconstitutional, especially where the 2nd Amendment is concerned. This places them in direct opposition to the federal government.
What we are now hearing about may well be the Obama Administration’s response to these issues. It is to use Russian troops instead of American law enforcement personnel. Russians have no loyalty to Americans or America. If used, their job would be to simply follow orders without questioning them, just like paid mercenaries. Because of this, they would be able to remain aloof to things like the U.S. Constitution (and specifically to those pesky 2nd and 4th Amendments.)
The Russian press release states: “The Russian Emergency Situations Ministry and the USA Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are going to exchange experts during joint rescue operations in major disasters. This is provided by a protocol of the fourth meeting of the U.S.-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission Working Group on Emergency Situations and seventeenth meeting of Joint U.S.-Russia Cooperation Committee on Emergency Situations, which took place in Washington on 25 June.” Note that the verbiage states that the experts will be used in joint rescue operations during major disasters.
Who knows what the truth is here? The Russian press release only states that “experts” will be used during major disasters. Yet, others claim that the use of these troops will occur during protests (and even security for things like the Half-Time Superbowl Show.) A number of these reports also reference State Department publication 7277, “which is a blueprint for the harmonization of US and Russian forces under a framework of United Nations-led global government.”
Numerous people have talked about this particular State Department document, including Daniel Estulin in his book The True Story of the Bilderberg Group. Estulin notes that since 1940, the State Department has been staffed by people who belonged to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), a group that is under the auspices of the Bilderbergers, the main cabal of the Global Elite. Estulin also notes that the beginnings of CFR actually date back to 1921 with Edward Mandell House, President Woodrow Wilson’s chief advisor. House was also known to be a Marxist and used numerous ideas from Karl Marx (like the graduated income tax, which was built into the 16th Amendment). Folks, are we beginning to see how deep the rabbit hole goes? None of this started yesterday.
People also point to Posse Comitatus, which became law in June of 1878 and was intended to “limit the powers of Federal government in using federal military personnel to enforce the State laws.” The term “posse comitatus” literally means, “an armed body of men at the disposal of the King for the purposes of keeping the peace.” The issue is whether or not the military or foreign troops can legally be used against Americans on American soil.
Unfortunately for American citizens, when Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law on December 31, 2011, it gave the federal government the right to use military personnel to arrest and keep American citizens in “indefinite military detention without charge or trial into law for the first time in American history.” The NDAA is at odds with the Posse Comitatus Act and, in essence, overrules it. Even though the ACLU and other groups are very concerned of the NDAA’s ramifications, that doesn’t amount to much when American citizens can be held without charge or trial.
Is it illegal to have military troops on the ground in America dealing with American citizens? Not according to the NDAA. And we saw this during the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing when troops, along with SWAT and other law enforcement personnel, went door to door, illegally searching persons and homes for the two Chechen suspects. How did people react? Most weren’t the slightest bit bothered if “it keeps them safe.”
If military personnel can now be utilized by the feds because of the NDAA, there is no reason why Russian troops (or other foreign military personnel) cannot be used. It seems as though this will ultimately become reality.
One of the main objectives of the Global Elite is to disarm all national armies in favor of one giant army under the auspices of the United Nations. Russian troops on the ground in America dealing with American citizens may be the first big step in that direction. Time will tell, but things appear to be ramping up very quickly. I hope you’re prepared.

This isn’t an Obama-bashing piece.
This is frank commentary born from the key pad of a free man wondering how long freedom endures under the current regime- let alone while carrying damage done by predecessors.
The NDAA, NSA, and IRS scandals alone paint a dim picture of presidential opinions toward those of us on the proverbial “chitlin circuit” devoid of insider perks or bundler bankrolls.
Obama is either a Black dictator (despite being bi-racial) using his color to cloak autocracy (which would make the average White supremacist blush), or a misunderstood monarch who finds himself in these messes through no fault of his own?
Take your pick.
When white guys like J. Edgar Hoover or Richard Nixon spied on allegedly private communications of non-criminal, non-treasonous Americans, sizable bi-partisan choruses bellowed disapproval.
Kudos to the ACLU for filing suit regarding NSA eavesdropping and showing itself, at least in this instance, to be independent of the chief executive’s hold over progressive activists.
Compare this to Al Sharpton’s timid I trust President Obama, but it’s a bad precedent because he won’t be president forever.”
Shameful accommodation from someone whose history includes a race-driven COINTELPRO pogrom aimed at Black mainstream and militant alike with no regard for the constitution nor basic decency.
Lending deafening credence to the Black dictator argument is not a peep from high profile Black progressives regarding Obama’s political spying.
Is this what 20th Century activists endured so a Black man (or bi-racial man who chooses to be one) can have his political spying overlooked by Black folks, once the most spied upon segment of the American populace until conservatives made it to the top of the chart?
Not quite my idea of progress, but what do I know? I call our ” precious ” drug dealers and other Hood horrors “chocolate Klansmen” and “zombies”!
Obama wants us to believe he’s a misunderstood monarch, beset by Negrophobic knaves praying for his reign to fail.
The best way to persuade liberty-loving skeptics and outright opponents is to stop acting like a Black dictator because that’s what he looks like.
When Richard Nixon played the dictator game, he had to pack up his bags and go home.
Sounds good to me.
With the passage of the NDAA and his use of executive orders, Obama has managed to bring about an inexorable slide to tyranny. On March 16, 2012, he signed executive order 13603 about “National Defense Resources Preparedness.” This act provides Obama with the authority to control food, water, production, material, and labor of almost unimaginable proportions. This, of course, is not the first time it has been done. Like it has been said, “There is nothing new under the sun.”
In 1933, just shortly after his election, Franklin D. Roosevelt declared a state of emergency. His actions were covered by the NIRA (National Industrial Recovery Act), which essentially gave him the same scope of power that Obama now has. In his inaugural address in January 1933, Roosevelt said, “If we are to go forward, we must move as a trained and loyal army willing to sacrifice for the good of common discipline, because without such discipline no progress is made, no leadership becomes effective. We are, I know, ready and willing to submit our lives and property to such discipline, because it makes possible a leadership which aims at a larger good. This I propose to offer, pledging that the larger purposes will bind upon us all as a scared obligation and with a unity of duty hitherto evoked only in time of armed strife. With this pledge taken, I assume unhesitatingly the leadership of this great army of our people dedicated to a disciplined attack upon our common problems.”
In the same year, Adolf Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany. In many ways, Hitler and FDR faced similar problems with high unemployment, inflation, a lack of consumer confidence, a lack of industrial output, and a country in the depths of depression. Hitler also managed to unite his countrymen into one unified people under his total control, just as Roosevelt through executive order managed to command the entire nation’s economy. In Germany, this act was called “The Enabling Act”, another name but essentially the same function. For example, after the Enabling Act, Hitler declared public holidays for workers in all industries, while at the same time banning all workers’ unions.
Throughout much of the late 1920′s and into the late 1930′s, Mussolini in Italy enjoyed support and adulation from liberals and progressives in the USA. So great was his support that an image resembling him was contained within a sculpture representing Atlas in Rockefeller Plaza. He was being revered as having unified and put the labor force of Italy to work, creating a fast-growing Italian economy through collective means.
In January 2013, Obama in his second inaugural address said”But we have always understood that when times change, so must we; that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges; that preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action. For the American people can no more meet the demands of today’s world by acting alone than American soldiers could have met the forces of fascism or communism with muskets and militias. No single person can train all the math and science teachers we’ll need to equip our children for the future, or build the roads and networks and research labs that will bring new jobs and businesses to our shores. Now, more than ever, we must do these things together, as one nation and one people.”
While Obama, when he signed the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act), pledged he would never think about using the indefinite detention portion of the act upon American citizens, it would be legal under the provisions of the act. He also signed the executive order as stated in the opening of this article and has yet to activate it, although as it stands it would be legal. Remember, we are still under a state of emergency begun after Sept 11th by George W. Bush and extended by Obama. Are we to awaken one morning after another attack (another Boston perhaps) and find this act also activated?
Remember (as many historians have found), under German law as it stood at the time, everything Hitler did was legal. Are we also on that inexorable slide to tyranny? Do we wait for these acts to come into play before we respond even to their existence? Will it be too late if we do? Will we as a country who under the Constitution are the true rulers of our nation allow this to happen?
Spain has just announced that their unemployment rate is over twenty seven percent, and they are developing extraordinary measures to combat the situation. How long before the collapse of the dollar, or another oil embargo such as what happened in the 1970′s (or another war perhaps with Syria, Iraq, or North Korea) plunges the United States into such turmoil as Europe is now toiling against? No one know the fate of the European Union at the moment. But are the foundations of the United States any more sound than that of Europe? Or is it simply being held together by the perception of unity, the notion that our once-great nation could not be brought down by economic rules that have stood for all time? The Obama administration seems to eschew the notion that the United States is an exceptional country. Can a country that is not exceptional hope to avoid the rules that have applied to all other economies throughout all time?
Personally, after watching the martial law (whether declared or not) in Boston and the calls by Bloomberg and others for “modifying” our rights under present conditions, I think we have started the inexorable slide into tyranny.

Nearly a thousand heavily armed demonstrators, some in wheelchairs and some in strollers, descended upon the Michigan State Capitol building in Lansing on Wednesday March 20th to draw a line in the sand, telling the Federal government in no uncertain terms that they would oppose any attempts to register or ban any type of currently legal firearm or accessory.
Back in 2009, 11 days after becoming the first illegal alien to hold the office of President, Barack Hussein Obama, citizen of Indonesia, was nominated for (and shortly thereafter awarded) the Noble Peace Prize. It appears to have been awarded on the basis of his skin color and his uber-liberal, leftist outlook on life, the universe, and everything. It certainly was not based on anything he had done, or what he would do in the future.
When Obama took power, one of the big issues he ran on was that our actions had made the Islamic world hate us. This has been the position of the radical left, too, that 9/11 was brought upon us by our arrogance and militaristic interference in the affairs of Islamic countries in various parts of the world. Obama, The Messiah, The One, vowed to change that by, it turns out, arrogance and militaristic interference in the affairs of Islamic countries in various parts of the world. The instances are many, but let’s look at a few of the most egregious.
Iraq and Afghanistan have been turned from difficult situations into unmitigated disasters. The mind-bogglingly inept and incompetent handling of both wars by Obama, the State Department, and what Obama has turned into the Department of Surrender, has led to huge and continuing death and casualty counts of both soldiers and civilians. In addition, the governments of both countries have become increasingly hostile towards us, with the increasing possibility that Islamist extremists will end up in control of of them; and all of the deaths of our brave, young heroes will have been in vain.
The war in Libya, of course, was not only a totally uncalled for and completely unjustified interference in the internal affairs of a sovereign nation; it was an action that violated U.S. federal law, the War Powers Act. Consent from Congress, supposedly the representatives of We the People, was neither asked for nor granted. The result was chaos and the brutal murder of a leader who had the support of a large percentage, if not an actual majority, of his countrymen. In the end, radical Islamists rose in power and stature; and the promised freedom for the downtrodden never materialized.
Not long after, a State Department (read: CIA) compound in the Libyan city of Benghazi was attacked and overrun by radical Islamists allied with al-Queda, an organization Obama and his Ministry of Propaganda (aka the Mainstream Media) swore was defeated, dispersed, and no longer a threat. While Obama and Hillary Clinton, then Secretary of State, did nothing to help and in fact appear to have hindered rescue efforts, four Americans (government employees including our ambassador) were savagely murdered. Obama and Clinton, with the complicity of the media, have worked feverishly ever since to cover up their heinous (in)actions.
Why, one might feel tempted to ask? Well, it seems that the erstwhile Peace Prize winner was involved in a gun-running scheme. No, no. Not the one that sent thousands of weapons to drug cartels in Mexico. No. This one was about shipping masses of arms, at least some of which were collected from the defeated Libyan Army, to the Syrian “rebels,” another group allied with (if not run by) supposedly no longer existent al-Queda. For some reason, the Peace Prize winning “President” of al-Queda’s sworn enemy doesn’t want the American people to know he has been supplying them with weapons.
All this, of course, overlooks the massive and growing drone war being “covertly” waged in sovereign nations like Pakistan and Yemen (and other less obvious places.) Many believe that it’s just a matter of time (and not a whole lot of it) before the drone war is brought home to America, where the very unconstitutional National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) allows the president to wage war on anyone he deems a terrorist. It also overlooks purchases of billions of rounds of hollow-point, maximum damage ammunition and thousands of “assault rifles,” shotguns, and armored vehicles by federal agencies. Who does the Peace Prize Laureate intend to use all this on? (BTW, this is what is called a rhetorical question.)
Our peace-loving Commander-in-Chief has also so emboldened and aggravated the North Koreans with his provocative military maneuvers that we are now in imminent danger of their wacko leader setting off a nuke in our atmosphere, causing an electromagnetic pulse that could send us back to the Stone Age in seconds. The Russians and the Chinese, too, as if smelling blood in the water, have become increasingly aggressive, bringing back memories of the worst days of the Cold War.
Like the Religion of Peace© he so admires – and many believe still practices – Obama is a clear and present danger to the United States of America. He must be forced to resign, or be removed from power by We the People, before he destroys us.
