Obama's Tinder Box

I am on the Tea Party Patriots’ Ning Network and a member of 28 TPP Groups on that Network. So, I have my finger on the pulse of Patriots and can tell you the blood pressure is rising.

This building anger is not without sound reasons. The Obama Administration has taken their objective of deliberately inflaming the American people to an art form. Please read my recent Blogs on called “Civil Disobedience” and “Let it Burn”.

What prompts this Blog are recent emails and posts from all around the country with the theme of, “They will have to take my guns off my dead body.” Then, last week I had lunch with a friend who was a retired 30-year veteran of law enforcement. When the conversation flowed into the socialist/progressives need to control the flow of communications (net neutrality/fairness doctrine) and securing firearms, my friend replied that he would “go down fighting.”

I pointed out to him that it would not be Rahm Emanuel, Nancy Pelosi or Barack Obama who would come to his door. No, they would send some 23-year old deputy sheriff or a young policewoman and mother of 2 children. I asked, “Are you really going to shoot these people for doing their jobs? What about the grief and anguish this would cause their children, parents and siblings? Don’t you see that what is going on is a deliberate attempt to ignite civil unrest?” He must have thought back over his many years of service as his eyes became moist. He had a friend (fellow officer) who was murdered by a bomb blast back in the radical Bill Ayers (“we didn’t do enough”) days. But, I am sure it was just allergies as my friend is a tough man.

There was understandable awkward moment of silence. Then, he asked, “Well what the hell can we do?” Here is my response to all of you who have just about had it.
I was at the Tax Day Protest in 09 and again this year. I was at the kickoff of the Tea Party Express in 2009 in Sacramento and at the end of its journey in Washington DC. I attended the 9-12 March on Washington and (God willing) will again this year. I have attended most all of the Nevada County, CA Tea Party Patriots’ functions over the past 12 months and a several TPP events outside my local chapter. I went to town halls and confronted politicians. I wrote letters to editors and to members of Congress. I have posted numerous Blogs on TPP sites and others across this country. I even wrote and published a book that chronicles the Tea Party Movement and the peril our country faces from within our own government (American Revolution 2010 – A Tea Party Patriot’s Call to Arms).

Millions of Patriots have done this much and more. Lori Parker founded As A Mom. Mark Meckler, Jenny Beth Martin and a handful of other founders have put their lives on hold while promoting the values of the TPP around the country…without pay. Ginni Thomas just started Liberty Central. Do you think the wife of a Supreme Court Justice, and high powered DC business women in her own right, wasn’t already a tad busy?

We have one shot at stopping the madness before the Obama Administration declares communications like this one seditious. Woodrow Wilson’s administration had U.S. citizens arrested for speaking out against government policies. Do you really think Obama would not do the same?

We will know by the November elections if we can save our Republic at the ballot box. We have precious little time. Please, get involved…NOW! It is literally a matter of life and death.

Civil Disobedience

Last week, the Assistant Secretary of State expressed concern to China for the civil rights violations the Obama Administration expects to happen as a result of Arizona 1070. Thursday, on American soil, the President of Mexico publically chastised Arizona over SB1070. Calderon lectures Arizona in President Obama’s presence and rather than defend Arizona, Obama supported Calderon’s criticisms! Friday, the President of Mexico received a standing ovation from our politicians as he spoke in front of a joint session of Congress and again attacked Arizona. This is despicable! This is infuriating! This is on purpose.

As I understand it, (thanks Charles Krauthammer), anyone caught entering Mexico illegally is subject to a 2 year prison sentence. If caught a second time, it is a
10-year sentence. Now I don’t know this for a fact, but my guess is Mexican prisons do not offer color TV and an exercise gym. There were just under 12,000 people murdered in Mexico in the past two years. How about President Calderon cleaning up his own house!

For two weeks, Obama and his minions, headed by the US Attorney General Holder and Homeland Security Chief Napolitano, have driven a wedge between Americans by going in front of the lapdog media and lamenting about the injustice of SB1070 (which practically mirrors existing Federal law). Now they admit that they never even read SB1070! It is only about 16 pages and they have not read the bill that they have been lambasting for two weeks!

What’s up with all this? The answer is simple and horrible. The reason for all of the constant in-your-face insults to the American people is that the Obama Administration wants to incite civil unrest. That would provide them with the excuse they need to clamp down on the internet, talk radio, Tea Party Movement, etc. It would be done, of course, for the good of the country. They are starting to succeed.

More and more Americans are saying they just can’t take any more of this Administration’s America bashing. There is a clamoring for more direct and immediate reaction via civil disobedience. Every time Obama craped on our friends such as Poland, the U. K. and Israel while bowing and kissing up to our enemies, the American people cringed. Yet, that hasn’t been enough to accomplish the liberal/progressives goals. So now they malign the people of Arizona. Los Angles is boycotting Arizona and Arizona reminds LA that 25% of their electricity is supplied by Arizona. I can almost see that Cheshire cat smile on Obama’s face. This is precisely what the progressives want to happen, state against state, ethnic group vs. ethnic group.

A comment about civil disobedience...we must not to go there, at least until we see what happens with the 2010 elections. The TTP movement has made tremendous strides. Look at Rubio and Paul. One more week and NY23 would have gone conservative. We are not just trading Liberal/Progressives for RINOs. There are a lot of good candidates running for office (black, white, Latino and Asian). I cannot remember such a thing. It is usually vote for this dirtbag or that dirtbag. We have a chance to take back our country at the ballot box. Let's not blow it. Arizona, you can help in a big way by dumping McCain.

If we go to civil disobedience now, the TPP will evaporate faster than a morning fog. All our work will have been for nothing. The Tea Party Movement will go from several million to several thousand almost overnight. The socialist/communist in power in DC know this and will do all they can to instigate or fabricate it.

If we cannot take back the House in 2010 (Senate is also a possibility), we will not be able to wait until 2012. Obama, Soros, etc. will have destroyed our economy and have too large a % of Americans dependent on government handouts. If that happens, and I pray it doesn't, I would be with you on civil disobedience.

Let It Burn

A TPP friend in Austin, TX sent me the May 15, 2010 article from American Thinker with the title "Let it Burn."

The author of this article did indeed make many salient points. I agree with almost everything he/she writes. Basically, it is pointed out that our politicians are like drug dealers and way too many Americans are citizen-addicts. Yes, "endless, ever expanding government programs" has created our "current fiscal nightmare." The argument is made that the economic attitude of the nation has shifted from self-sufficient, individualism to a nation of addicts hooked on politician's false promises of economic security. I agree with this premise and the arguments given in the article to support this position are sound and well presented. His/her writing skills are truly impressive. Who among us active in the Tea Party Movement would not agree with this quote from "Let It Burn."

"For the past hundred years, America has been slowly moving away from the principals of its founding. The ideals of liberty...and the equality of opportunity have been slowly supplanted by calls for security, class warfare, excessive regulation and the equality of outcome."

I wish I could write with such eloquence. So what is my problem with this article?

I most ardently disagree with the author's conclusion and solution, which is, "...America is lost." "Attempts by responsible citizens at reform will be only partially successful, not changing the fundamentals of our dilemma." The author insists that we must allow America to go through the process of "hitting bottom." The article goes on with, "The decline has begun, and now our nation must hit bottom" and admits that "Detoxing America will cause social, political and economic strife of a sort unimaginable, and yet it is a process we must endure."

No, we don't! We must not allow our country to reach this point.

What this American Thinker article suggests is straight out of Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. It is what Barrack Obama studied and taught as a community organizer. They want to overwhelm the system from within. When our economy collapses, the Obama Administration will come riding to the rescue. With enough people out of work, their families going hungry and homes lost, many will accept anyone as their savior. John Nichols of the communist publication Free Press said, “Hungry people fighting over food don’t usually make real sound decisions.” This is Rahm Emanuel's philosophy on steroids. "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste." The progressives believe that once this transformation occurs, it will be permanent.

However, most Americans will not long endure the loss of their liberties that such false security would bring. We would rise up and destroy the yoke of "soft slavery" that always accompanies government dependency. Once the progressives have us under their authority, they would not easily relinquish control. No rational person would ever want to reach this point. We must not allow this to happen. This is precisely why I wrote the book American Revolution 2010 – A Tea Party Patriot’s Call to Arms.

I equate the 2010 elections to a trauma center. It is where we can stop the financial bleeding and prevent our country from going into shock. Once stabilized, we can then focus on the 2012 elections and rid ourselves of the enemies within. This would mean some would have to break their personal paradigm when it comes to casting votes. We will only prolong the inevitable if we elect RINOS.

“Let it burn” shall not happen! This is a call to action. We Patriots must once again stand together and mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
