“It is Alive!” Born: Department of the Internet

This new department, when people finally realize the freedoms they just lost with this 3-2 vote by the FCC will probably be as disliked and unpopular as ObamaCare. And like ObamaCare, this is nothing more than the next attempt by a faction of the Obama government to strip us of our liberties. NOTHING MORE.

Yesterday in my post “Enter the Dragon….” I mentioned that all this is, is a power grab, and the government can’t wait for it to happen. Well today, by that vote of 3-2 by the FCC it is alive. Born is the coming control entity called the Department of the Internet!

The freedoms we enjoy while surfing the world wide web are in the process of governmental control and curtailment. Mark my words folks.

Sites like this one may cease to exist because of the rules we will have to now abide by, like having to have a license to do what Wise Conservatism does so well. And having a license puts the government right at our keyboards, when we want to write something that goes against Obama or the government, they will simply say they don’t approve of what we are writing, and we will be censored. And since everything we say here is against what Obama wants, we will be censored out of existence. So much for freedom of speech and the freedom of the press, huh?

But what we have to realize is that these freedoms, which are guaranteed to all of us by our Constitution and God are the enemies of our elected officials and they want nothing more than to take them all away from us. And we are allowing them to do just that. Take our freedoms away. Little by little, bit by bit, and lately big chunk by big chunk. And like I have said over and over again, it is time to stop this tyranny on the American people.

We have to stop being afraid of the left and the media calling us domestic terrorists and traitors to America because the real traitors to this country are the liberals and the so called RINO republicans who won’t do what this country needs, and what the people want. And why won’t they? The answer is so simple.

They don’t want what we want. Remember when Obama said that we were ‘just days from fundamentally changing America?’ Why would anyone, who loved America want to fundamentally change her? And fundamentally change her he has.

We are to a point now where the government will do anything it damned well pleases because it can. And the agencies of the government like the FCC are now doing things it wants to do, because they can. Obama made sure of this. But a precedence is being set here, and if we do not stop this trend towards lawlessness, we are going to have to fear all of our future leaders because they will know it can be done. And it will be.

The future is here folks. It’s time to stop this marauding band of thugs in office, or everyone we will ever elect from now on will do the same things because it has been done successfully before. Time to stop this…because the next big thing that we won’t like is now on the horizon. The Department of the Internet. If we don’t stop it say goodbye to more freedoms. It is alive and here. The FCC mandated that the other day. We need to act now…..while acting on it will still be enough.

God Bless America
God Bless our Troops
God Bless us while You can.


Enter the Dragon – Net Neutrality Rears it’s Ugly Head Tomorrow

It seems that everytime the government wants to do something, and they have just an inkling that the American people won’t want it, they come out with stupid comments like Nancy Pelosi’s “We have to pass it so we can know what is in it” comment about ObamaCare. Well pass it they did, against the wishes of the people and now the people are finding out just what they didn’t want us to see.

The same goes for this whole “net neutrality” bull crap that they are going to vote on Tomorrow. February 26th.

The FCC has decided that it is in their best interest to not let the people see what is in this bill. First off, the FCC is NOT a law making entity. Only Congress is. But, they get away with this because they are not accountable to the people. And mark my words here folks, what is coming down the pike if this “NET NEUTRALITY” bill gets passed will not be liked or wanted by any of us.

They tell us it will make things safer and easier for internet users, when in fact it will give the government more ways to get into our lives and control us. PERIOD!

Rush Limbaugh said it best when he said:

People live in a never-ending phase or state of blind-faith hope that the government can come along and address, redress and eliminate every injustice out there, be it economic, be it cultural, and they have yet to succeed at it… Net neutrality, that’s another one of these bogus titles for an operation that’s the exact opposite. It’s not gonna be neutral…. I’m stunned with the ease in which Obama has had in getting so many young people to sign on eagerly to the idea of regulating the Internet… Net neutrality is as honest a name as is the Affordable Care Act, or as was the Fairness Doctrine. It’s just the latest left-wing power grab.

It’s just the latest left-wing power grab. Oh yeah. This action by the left in our government is almost unheard of in the history of this nation. The party that loses power has always lost power and had to give in to the new party in power. Always, that is until now. Right now the liberal machine in our government is still acting like they have the majority, and the Republicans, who won in a landslide all over the nation this last November are acting like they are still the minority. The rules are still being dictated by the left and the cowering under the table is still being done by the right. Who needs elections when the loser still acts like the winners and the winners still cower like a little kid that has no idea what just happened?


But what we have to do, especially after winning, is let our new majority know under no uncertain terms, that if they don’t do what they were sent there to do, they WILL BE REPLACED with someone who will. Something we haven’t done so far.

So, what is Net Neutrality? I can sum it up in a few words here.

Tomorrow, on Thursday February 26th, Obama’s going to continue his hijacking efforts to take away more and more of our freedoms, in the name of freedom. Do you own a website, do you operate a website? If Obama gets his way, you’re gonna have to get a license for it just like radio and TV stations get licenses, because the Internet is gonna be subject to regulation under Title II like broadcast facilities are. Cable is not, but over the air broadcast will be, and they can’t wait to regulate the Internet, folks, they just can’t wait. It’s almost like a wet dream for them. They can’t help themselves.

But, they also know that we won’t like it if we knew what was in Net Neutrality, so like they did with ObmamCare, they won’t let the public see it until it is passed. Because they know that once a bill is passed into law, it is hard to get rid of it. Almost impossible for that matter.

ObamaCare is a great example of this.

The majority of the people don’t like it. It was passed into law illegally, yet, the government and everyone else for that matter treats it like a law we have to obey. It doesn’t matter that it was forced down our throats illegally. It matters not that most people want it repealed. It stays as a monument to our unwillingness to get totally involved in the affairs of the government…..no matter how bad those affairs are, we just won’t get involved. But Rush goes on with his explanation of this coming theft of our freedoms.

There’s too much freedom out there. There’s too many people “out of control” on the Internet, and Obama and the Democrats have gotta get it controlled. And the way they’re doing it is capitalizing on the stupidity of young people. Maybe “stupidity” is the wrong word. Ignorance and lack of information resulting from the fact that they haven’t lived long enough to know.

The way net neutrality is being sold to Millennials is — and I read these tech bloggers, these little guys. I read ’em, they hate their cable providers. They hate their web service providers, Internet service, they hate ’em. Just like you were made to hate Big Oil and just like you were made to hate Big Tobacco. Just like you’ve been oriented to hate Big Anything, Big Retail, big box retail like Walmart. The Democrats’ enemies list now includes all of the telecommunications companies and the Internet service providers.

The way Obama is targeting support, gaining support from young people on this, is he’s got them confused that what he’s gonna do with net neutrality is punish the people they hate. Does this sound familiar? They’re gonna go after Comcast, Time Warner, any other telecommunications, cell provider, Internet service, they’re gonna really hammer ’em, and they’re gonna make sure that they don’t overcharge. Then they’re gonna make sure they provide equal access to high speed. The big, rich people aren’t gonna get any more access to high speed than people who can’t afford it are, and the government’s gonna take care of it, and the government’s gonna punish, and government’s gonna make people behave right. How can they do this when they can’t even control how they act?

The government’s gonna make it all fair. The government’s gonna make it all equal. And that’s what they’ve been led to believe. The same government that has, right in front of these little people, these young people’s faces, blown up the health care system. The same government that has made a mockery of HealthCare.gov. The same government that has messed up and on the verge of totally destroying, under the guise of transforming it, the best health care system in the world.

While that is happening, I mean, you can’t have any better evidence of the incompetence of bureaucracies to handle massive market maneuvers like health care. You can’t have a better example of government failure than what they’re trying to do with health care, or anything that Obama has touched on the economy. And yet, in the midst of being able to see all of this failure, in the midst of witnessing all of this government incompetence, despite that, we still have people thinking the government’s gonna get it right when they start regulating the Internet.

Now, I’m sorry, folks, you can blame Obama — and I do — and you can blame the FCC and its commissioners — and I do — and you can blame politicians, but ultimately this falls back on the gullibility and the ignorance, dare I say stupidity of some people, because it’s happening right in front of us. The very government that can’t do anything right in terms of improving things that it claims to fix is eminently trusted to get it right on the Internet. And I just want to be around when these people have to get licenses for their websites.

Do you know what happens when you get a license to own a radio or TV station? You have to prove to the government every three years, five, I don’t know what it is now, maybe it’s 10, but you have to prove that you are operating responsibly. You have to prove that you are adequately serving the community. Blah, blah, blah. The point is your freedom to operate your website is going to be dependent on the government approving what you do.

Now I ask you. Do you want the government deciding what is right for you to do? Do you want Obama and other socialistic leftists telling you that you can do this but you can’t do that on the internet? Do you want them in your information? Of course you don’t, unless it is information about what they are really doing. But, if they get Net Neutrality going tomorrow, we are going to find out that places like this blog, or Political Pistachio or even Rush Limbaugh are going to be regulated. If we say things against the administration, we get censored or even taken down. Where is our Net Neutrality then folks? Hmmmm?

Government can’t even do health care right, and they want to take on more stuff? Why? So they can control what we do by screwing everything else up? Don’t they have enough power already? I mean, they can’t even get right the things they are supposed to do now, what makes us think they can get more stuff right if they are allowed. Mark my words here folks, they won’t.

God Bless us each and every one


The Silly Season

For several weeks now, various Republicans have been dipping their toes into the election scene, and the Hildebeast has been rumbling as well.  Of course, sniping has been occurring by both political parties, of which will only become worse as time goes on.

But one incident so far caught my attention simply because it is so asinine – Howard Dean making the statement that Scott Walker is unqualified for the Presidency because he doesn’t have a college degree.  While I have known a great number of people that do not have a degree and yet are smarter that those who do, I cannot compare any statements that I make with the response of Mike Rowe on his Facebook page to a fan’s question:

Kyle Smith writes…

Howard Dean recently criticized Gov Scott Walker for never finishing college, stating that he was “unknowledgeable.” What would your response be on college as a requirement for elected office?

Hi Kyle

Back in 1990, The QVC Cable Shopping Channel was conducting a national talent search. I had no qualifications to speak of, but I needed a job, and thought TV might be a fun way to pay the bills. So I showed up at The Marriott in downtown Baltimore with a few hundred other hopefuls, and waited for a chance to audition. When it was my turn, the elevator took me to the top floor, where a man no expression led me into a suite and asked me to take a seat behind a large desk. Across from the desk, there was a camera on a tripod. On the desk was a digital timer with an LED display. I took a seat as the man clipped a microphone on my shirt and explained the situation.

“The purpose of this audition is to see if you can talk for eight minutes without stuttering, blathering, passing out, or throwing up. Any questions?”

“What would you like me to talk about,” I asked.

The man pulled a pencil from behind his ear and rolled it across the desk. “Talk to me about that pencil. Sell it. Make me want it. But be yourself. If you can do that for eight minutes, the job is yours. Ok?”

I looked at the pencil. It was yellow. It had a point on one end, and an eraser on the other. On the side were the words, Dixon Ticonderoga Number 2 SOFT.

“Ok,” I said.

The man set the timer to 8:00, and walked behind the tripod. He pressed a button and a red light appeared on the camera. He pressed another button and the timer began to count backwards. “Action,” he said. I picked up the pencil and started talking.

“Hi there. My name’s Mike Rowe, and I only have eight minutes to tell you why this is finest pencil on Planet Earth. So let’s get right to it.”

I opened the desk drawer and found a piece of hotel stationary, right where I hoped it would be. I picked up the pencil and wrote the word, QUALITY in capital letters. I held the paper toward the camera.

“As you can plainly see, The #2 Dixon Ticonderoga leaves a bold, unmistakable line, far superior to the thin and wispy wake left by the #3, or the fat, sloppy skid mark of the unwieldy #1. Best of all, the Ticonderoga is not filled with actual lead, but “madagascar graphite,” a far safer alternative for anyone who likes to chew on their writing implements.”

To underscore the claim, I licked the point. I then discussed the many advantages of the Ticonderoga’s color.

“A vibrant yellow, perfectly suited for an object that needs to stand out from the clutter of a desk drawer.”

I commented on the comfort of it’s design.

“Unlike those completely round pencils that press hard into the web of your hand, the Ticonderoga’s circumference is comprised of eight, gently planed surfaces, which dramatically reduce fatigue, and make writing for extended periods an absolute delight.”

I pointed out the “enhanced eraser,” which was “guaranteed to still be there – even when the pencil was sharpened down to an unusable nub.”

I opined about handmade craftsmanship and American made quality. I talked about the feel of real wood.

“In a world overrun with plastic and high tech gadgets, isn’t it comforting to know that some things haven’t evolved into something shiny and gleaming and completely unrecognizable?’”

After all that, there was still five minutes on the timer. So I shifted gears and considered the pencil’s impact on Western Civilization. I spoke of Picasso and Van Gogh, and their hundreds of priceless drawings – all done in pencil. I talked about Einstein and Hawking, and their many complicated theories and theorems – all done in pencil.

“Pen and ink are fine for memorializing contracts,” I said, “but real progress relies on the ability to erase and start anew. Archimedes said he could move the world with a lever long enough, but when it came to proving it, he needed a pencil to make the point.”

With three minutes remaining, I moved on to some personal recollections about the role of pencils in my own life. My first legible signature, my first book report, my first crossword puzzle, and of course, my first love letter. I may have even worked up a tear as I recalled the innocence of my youth, scribbled out on a piece of looseleaf with all the hope and passion a desperate 6th grader could muster…courtesy of a #2 pencil.

With :30 seconds left on the timer, I looked fondly at the Dixon Ticonderoga, and sat silently for five seconds. Then I wrapped it up.

“We call it a pencil, because all things need a name. But today, let’s call it what it really is. A time machine. A match maker. A magic wand. And let’s say it can all be yours…for just .99 cents.”

The timer read 0:00. The man walked back to the desk. He took the pencil and wrote “YOU’RE HIRED” on the stationary, and few days later, I moved to West Chester, PA. And a few days after that, I was on live television, face to face with the never-ending parade of trinkets and chochkes that comprise QVC’s overnight inventory.

I spent three months on the graveyard shift, five nights a week. Technically, this was my training period, which was curious, given the conspicuous absence of supervision, or anything that could be confused with actual instruction. Every few minutes a stagehand would bring me another mysterious “must have item,” which I’d blather about nonsensically until it was whisked away and replaced with something no less baffling. In this way, I slowly uncovered the mysteries of my job, and forged a tenuous relationship with an audience of chronic insomniacs and narcoleptic lonely-hearts. It was a crucible of confusion and ambiguity, and in hindsight, the best training I ever had.

Which brings me to the point of your question, Kyle.
I don’t agree with Howard Dean – not at all.

Here’s what I didn’t understand 25 years ago. QVC had a serious recruiting problem. Qualified candidates were applying in droves, but failing miserably on the air. Polished salespeople with proven track records were awkward on TV. Professional actors with extensive credits couldn’t be themselves on camera. And seasoned hosts who understood live television had no experience hawking products. So eventually, QVC hit the reset button. They stopped looking for “qualified” people, and started looking for anyone who could talk about a pencil for eight minutes.

QVC had confused qualifications with competency.
Perhaps America has done something similar?

Look at how we hire help – it’s not so different than how we elect leaders. We search for work ethic on resumes. We look for intelligence in test scores. We search for character in references. And of course, we look at a four-year diploma as though it might actually tell us something about common-sense and leadership.

Obviously, we need a bit more from our elected officials than the instincts of a home shopping host, but the business of determining what those “qualifications” are is completely up to us. We get to decide what matters most. We get to decide if a college degree or military service is somehow determinative. We get to decide if Howard Dean is correct.

Anyone familiar with my foundation knows my position. I think a trillion dollars of student loans and a massive skills gap are precisely what happens to a society that actively promotes one form of education as the best course for the most people. I think the stigmas and stereotypes that keep so many people from pursuing a truly useful skill, begin with the mistaken belief that a four-year degree is somehow superior to all other forms of learning. And I think that making elected office contingent on a college degree is maybe the worst idea I’ve ever heard.

But of course, Howard Dean is not the real problem. He’s just one guy. And he’s absolutely right when he says that many others will judge Scott Walker for not finishing college. That’s the real problem.

However – when Howard Dean called the Governor “unknowledgeable,” he rolled out more than a stereotype. He rolled a pencil across the desk, and gave Scott Walker eight minutes to knock it out of the park.

It’ll be fun to see if he does.

The Barbary Pirates

While working on the previous post, I ran across this article from P2T2 Solutions that explains a bit further on the situation with the Barbary Pirates of old, and the similarities of what is happening today.  Enjoy.

Most Americans are unaware of the fact that over two hundred years ago the United States had declared war on Islam and Thomas Jefferson led the charge! At the height of the eighteenth century, Muslim pirates were the terror of the Mediterranean and a large area of the North Atlantic. They attacked every ship in sight, and held the crews for exorbitant ransoms. Those taken hostage were subjected to barbaric treatment and wrote heart-breaking letters home, begging their government and family members to pay whatever their Mohammedan captors demanded.

These extortionist of the high seas represented the Islamic nations of Tripoli, Tunis, Morocco, and Algiers – collectively referred to as the Barbary Coast – and presented a dangerous and unprovoked threat to the new American Republic. Before the Revolutionary War, U.S. merchant ships had been under the protection of Great Britain. When the U.S. declared its independence and entered into war, the ships of the United States were protected by France. However, once the war was won, America had to protect its own fleets.

Thus, the birth of the U.S. Navy. Beginning in 1784, seventeen years before he would become president, Thomas Jefferson became America’s Minister to France. That same year, the U.S. Congress sought to appease its Muslim adversaries by following in the footsteps of European nations who paid bribes (aka: “protection money” by American mobsters) to the Barbary States rather than engaging them in war.

In July of 1785, Algerian pirates captured American ships, and the Dye of Algiers demanded an unheard-of ransom of $60,000. It was a plain and simple case of extortion, and Thomas Jefferson was vehemently opposed to any further payments. Instead, he proposed to Congress the formation of a coalition of allied nations who together could force the Islamic states into peace. A disinterested Congress decided to pay the ransom.

In 1786, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams met with Tripoli’s ambassador to Great Britain to ask by what right his nation attacked American ships and enslaved American citizens, and why Muslims held so much hostility towards America, a nation with which they had no previous contacts.

The two future presidents reported that Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja had answered that:

Islam was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Quran that all nations who would not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

This is based upon the Qur’an’s teaching from Surah 47:4 which reads;

“Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are ye commanded): but if it had been Allah’s Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be lost.”

Despite this stunning admission of premeditated violence on non-Muslim nations, as well as the objections of many notable American leaders, including George Washington, who warned that caving in was both wrong and would only further embolden the enemy, for the following fifteen years the American government paid the Muslims millions of dollars for the safe passage of American ships or the return of American hostages. The payments in ransom and tribute amounted to over twenty percent of the United States government annual revenues in 1800.

Jefferson was disgusted. Shortly after his being sworn in as the third President of the United States in 1801, the Pasha of Tripoli sent him a note demanding the immediate payment of $225,000 plus $25,000 a year for every year forthcoming.

That changed everything. Jefferson let the Pasha know, in no uncertain terms, what he could do with his demand. The Pasha responded by cutting down the flagpole at the American consulate and declared war on the United States. Tunis, Morocco, and Algiers immediately followed suit.

Jefferson, until now, had been against America raising a naval force for anything beyond coastal defense, but, having watched his nation be cowed by Islamic thugery for long enough, decided that is was finally time to meet force with force. He dispatched a squadron of frigates to the Mediterranean and taught the Muslim nations of the Barbary Coast a lesson he hoped they would never forget. Congress authorized Jefferson to empower U.S. ships to seize all vessels and goods of the Pasha of Tripoli and to “cause to be done all other acts of precaution or hostility as the state of war would justify”.

When Algiers and Tunis, who were both accustomed to American cowardice and acquiescence, saw the newly independent United States had both the will and the right to strike back, they quickly abandoned their allegiance to Tripoli. The war with Tripoli lasted for four more years, and raged up again in 1815. The bravery of the U.S. Marine Corps in these wars led to the line “to the shores of Tripoli” in the Marine Hymn, and they would forever be known as “leathernecks” for the leather collars of their uniforms, designed to prevent their heads from being cut off by the Muslim scimitars when boarding enemy ships.

Islam, and what its Barbary followers justified doing in the name of their prophet and their god, disturbed Jefferson quite deeply. America had a tradition of religious tolerance, the fact that Jefferson, himself, had co-authored the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, but fundamentalist Islam was like no other religion the world had ever seen. A religion based on supremacism, whose holy book the Quran not only condoned but mandated violence against unbelievers, was unacceptable to him. His greatest fear was that someday this brand of Islam would return and pose an even greater threat to the United States.

This should bother every American. That Muslims have brought about women-only classes and swimming times at taxpayer-funded universities and public pools; that Christians, Jews, and Hindus have been banned from serving on juries where Muslim defendants are being judged; Piggy banks and Porky Pig tissue dispensers have been banned from workplaces because they offend Islamist sensibilities; ice cream has been discontinued at certain Burger King locations because the picture on the wrapper looks similar to the Arabic script for Allah; public schools are pulling pork from their menus; on and on and on and on . . .

It’s death by a thousand cuts, or inch-by-inch as some refer to it, and most Americans have no idea that this battle is being waged every day across America. By not fighting back, by allowing groups to obfuscate what is really happening, and not insisting that the Islamists adapt to our own culture, the United States is cutting its own throat with a politically correct knife, and helping to further the Islamists agenda. Sadly, it appears that today’s America’s leaders would rather be politically correct than victorious!

Any doubts, just Google “Thomas Jefferson vs. the Muslim World.”


Next time you hear this tune, remember just how long the US has been fighting “extreme Islam”, and Otrama is right, Muslims have been in our history for 200 years, like hemorrhoids in bunghole, Islam been there. Thank a Marine next time you see him for keeping our country free from this scourge. /salute

Lessons Learned?

This past week, POTUS stated that “Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.”  Strangely enough, he was correct, although probably not in the way that he intended.

The following are excerpts from the article “Islam Versus the United States” in reference to the Barbary Pirates:

Prior to the Revolutionary War, American merchant ships enjoyed British protection on the high seas. Under the terms of Britain’s treaties with other nations, including the Barbary States, American ships were issued British-backed passes of safe conduct for the Mediterranean.
These maritime passes operated on a very simple yet effective system that declared the bearer immune from seizure. The pass would be cut in half along a serrated, lateral line, the top of which was issued to a ship’s captain, while the bottom half was given to the Barbary regency and copied for distribution to the corsair captains. When a vessel was boarded by pirates, the ship’s captain would produce his pass, and if the edges and words or images matched, it was usually accepted-although occasionally a palm or two would need greasing; the prize would be released and allowed to sail away unmolested. Although fraught with abuse and forgery, the system worked reasonably well. (London, Victory in Tripoli, p.13).

When Jefferson became President, the new nation possessed only 6 fighting ships.

The Muslim pirates in the Barbary States saw a golden opportunity for extortion, blackmail, and the obtaining of slaves.

They did not hesitate to descend like vultures on the defenseless merchant ships.

While he was ambassador to France, Thomas Jefferson was frankly told that the Muslim creed commands them to make war upon all unbelievers:

In May 1786, Thomas Jefferson, then the U.S. ambassador to France, and John Adams, then the U.S. ambassador to Britain, met in London with Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the resident Tripolitan ambassador, to try to negotiate a peace treaty to protect the United States from the threat of Barbary piracy. These future U.S. presidents questioned the ambassador as to why his government was so hostile to the new American Republic even though America had done nothing to provoke any animosity of any sort. Ambassador Adja answered them, as they reported to the Continental Congress, “that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every muslim who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise. He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy’s ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once.” (London, Victory in Tripoli, pp. 23-24).

The above bolded quotes can be found in various locations and forms, and are historical facts (not fiction). 

The story of the Barbary Pirates continued with the United States sending a squadron of ships and Marines to the area, fighting, and defeating the pirates, thus the reference to “Shores of Tripoli” in the Marine Anthem.

The bottom line is that the Islamic practice of conquest, tributes, slavery, and murder is nothing new.  It’s just more horrific with modern weapons and mass-media.

And just in case you haven’t heard, here are the passages from the Koran that justifies such actions:

  • Fight against such of those to whom the Scriptures were given as believe neither in God nor the Last Day, who do not forbid what God and His apostle have forbidden, and do not embrace the true Faith, until they pay tribute out of hand and are utterly subdued. (Sura 9:29).
  • When you meet the unbelievers in the battlefield strike off their heads and, when you have laid them low, bind your captives firmly. Then grant them their freedom or take ransom from them, until War shall lay down her burdens. (Sura 47:1).
  • They would have you disbelieve as they themselves have disbelieved, so that you may be all alike. Do not befriend them until they have fled their homes for the cause of God. If they desert you, seize them and put them to death wherever you find them. (Sura 4:87).

Why is it that our “leaders” fail to see that history is repeating itself?  Have the lessons of the past been relegated to the past and forgotten?  In the Land of the Free, we have taken things for granted, but recoil in horror as people are tortured, raped, and killed for their beliefs which are similar to our own.  We need to remember the following:


We really need to remember this as well:


And especially this one:


Is it now any wonder why the world is insane and burning?

We may not be at war with ISIS, but they ARE at war with us…..


President Obama, TAKE NOTICE. YOU ARE WRONG. You talk a big game about how we need to be more sympathetic to islam, and stop being, as you put it, islamophobic. We have known, here in the United States, for years now that Islamic Terrorists have declared war on the United States, and now for that matter, the rest of the world. You on the other hand have denied this fact in the face of mounting evidence that something needs to be done by you and our government to protect the American people. And what do you do? You tell us that we are wrong and that ISIS is not at war with us, and we misunderstand them. Then you go out to play ANOTHER round of golf.

Tell me sir, what don’t we understand?

We understand that Americans, Jews, Japanese and even their own are being brutally beheaded by a knife while you stand by in the confines of your ivory tower denying this whole thing means we are at war. Hell, Mr. President, even children are being decapitated, while the world waits for you to do something. But the “something” we want you to do isn’t what you do. You condemn America for being arrogant. You say we are being unnecessarily ISLAMOPHOBIC. Well, here is the fact you are missing Mr. President:

You say we are not at war. And you are right. We aren’t. But War has been declared on us.

This is something I said a year ago, and I am saying it again. You never saw my post the last time I said this, and you probably won’t this time either. And if you did, it wouldn’t make any difference because you love ISLAM more than you love anything else, and you would probably call me a terrorist for saying it.


You love things like the muslim brotherhood. ISIS, or ISIL as you call it. But here is the problem with that one mr. president.

ISIS is the islamic state in Syria or something like that, and ISIL is the ISLAMIC STATE including Levant. The problem lies there mr. president because when you call it ISIL, which it is NOT, you include Israel, our greatest ally. Israel sits right in the middle of LEVANT, you moron. You are throwing our ally Israel under the bus.

We all know you do this, and when you say that the ISLAMIC TERRORISTS of ISIS are not islamic, and not terrorists, you are wrong in so many ways.

First off, ISLAMIC is in their name. And Terrorism is in the war they have declared.

They declare war on nations for their beliefs, not because of what they have done to ISIS. Israel is one of the nations they have declared war on, and we are another. Jordan is another and so it Egypt. The difference there is, they have accepted that they are being WARRED against and they are fighting to win. YOU AREN’T. You say you are fighting, but there are so many restrictions on our troops that they might as well go into battle without weapons to fight with. We can’t win that way.

You are blind to the war that has been declared on the US and the world.
You are blind to the war that has been declared on the US and the world.

Mr. President, you are a shame to the American people. You are a shame to this nation. The sooner you are gone, the better off America will be. Hopefully we can elect another president with balls and a backbone, instead of the whimp that you have been and continue to be. Mr. Obama, you are not my president. You don’t speak for me or for the majority of the American people. A fact that seems to escape you all the time. We don’t follow a leader that doesn’t put us first in war and in peace. YOU DON’T, AND YOU NEVER HAVE.

God Bless America
God Bless our troops
God Bless us with a real leader soon.


“…there hasn’t been a major scandal……” HUH?

Former Senior Advisor to President Obama and the brains behind two, winning presidential campaigns, David Axelrod, touted the Obama White House ethics record, Buzzfeed reported.

Responding to a question during a recent event at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics, Axelrod said:

“I’m proud of the fact that basically you’ve had an administration that’s been in place for six years in which there hasn’t been a major scandal. And I think that says a lot about the ethical strictures of this administration.”

Now, I don’t know what protective bubble these idiots live in, or if this one buried his head in the sand surrounded by a block of concrete, which in turn kept oxygen from getting to his scrambled brain, but this man is totally clueless. I am sure that he has heard of “FAST AND FURIOUS”? I could name about 15 or so more scandals that have been part of the Obama administration if he can’t remember. This man is an idiot.

Kind of shows everyone just what kind of mentality resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue these days huh?
How about these Mr. Axelrod:

1. IRS Targeting Scandal
In 2013, the IRS admitted to targeting specific political groups who applied for tax-exempt statuses based on the names or the mission of the organizations. A criminal probe entered the IRS, which led to an FBI investigation and the resignation of the department’s acting director.

2. Benghazi Attack
On September 11th, 2012, Islamic militants captured a U.S. consulate in Libya, killing four Americans including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya. In subsequent weeks and months, an amateur American filmmaker was arrested for “inciting the violence” and multiple top U.S officials were called to testify before a special Select House Committee.

3. “Fast & Furious”
The Arizona Field Office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) allowed firearm dealers to sell guns to illegal “straw buyers,” in the hopes of tracking the weapons to Mexican cartel leaders. Instead, the weapons were used by the cartels to continue their reign of violence south of the border. More than 200 murders have been traced back to guns used in Fast & Furious, including the murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

4. NSA Spying Scandal
In 2013, a NSA contractor with top-secret security clearance leaked millions of U.S., British, and Australian intelligence documents to a select few reporters. This led to investigations and probes about the U.S. government spying on its own citizens by storing all forms of telecommunication. Additionally, it inspired many western nations to review their own methods of intelligence and document storing.

Now these were just off the top of my head, and I know there are more. I found the descriptions of each on RedFlagNews.com. But there are many more, and if Mr. Axelrod isn’t smart enough to know about these major scandals of the Obama administration, then he is too stupid to be part of our government.

Come to think of it……most there are too stupid to be part of the government. Thank God there are some new ones who still believe in the American dream and the Constitution. We need more of that kind and way less of ones like Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Dick Durbin, Barack Obama, Dianne Fienstein, Lindsay Graham, John McCain, et al.

The sooner we replace these and many more, the better off this country will be, because then, maybe the truth will me something to strive for again. Cause with this administration, it has no place in the mix of things going on that are scandal ridden.

Evil Is Among Us

Evil.  Any sane person knows that it is among us, probably closer than what we would otherwise be comfortable in admitting.  Any sane person will also call a barbaric, inhumane act evil.

Not President Obama…

Our Denier in Chief will do anything to keep from condemning acts by ISIS / ISIL evil.  In fact, he doesn’t even want to call them terrorists, nor does he refer to them as Radical Islamists.

This is pitiful, and shows the world what a failure as a leader this President really is.  It’s also damn embarrassing to all Americans that this President will not directly condemn a religion’s followers for committing what amounts to crimes against humanity.

Instead, he draws comparisons of barbaric acts of Christian Crusaders from centuries ago to the actions of the Islamic Radicals of today.  News flash, oh Emperor President Obummer…both sides committed atrocities during the Crusades.  The difference is that the Christians have pretty well stopped while the Muslims have kept on killing!  And one fact that he ignored:  The Crusades, which he blamed the Christians for, were actually a response to the Islamic invasion of the Holy Land and the brutal persecutions of Christians.

In my opinion, this last shows only one thing – we have a Muslim sympathizer in charge of our country.  His actions in illegally releasing prisoners from custody at Guantanamo Bay was only a hint of where his loyalties lie.

It’s not with the American People or with our country.  In fact, I cannot recall one instance of where this President has stood up for the American People much less defend them.

Unlike Jordan’s king, who personally climbs in a jet and goes on a bombing run against the POS that burned his pilot alive.

What does our President do?  Gives a speech, goes play golf (again), and let’s his minions post to Twitter.  Somehow, I don’t think #hashtags are capable of fighting people who commit such evil acts…and neither will speeches.

I personally think that this President needs to go.  Now.  Not in two years…now.

Congress has more than enough reasons to impeach and remove this President.  He has committed crimes that exceed his authority as President and meet the criteria of High Crimes and Misdemeanors:

  • For Illegally Changing Obamacare
  • Engaging In An Illegal War In Libya
  • Illegal appointments to the National Labor Relations Board
  • Violating Immigration Law And Illegally Implementing The DREAM ACT
  • Illegally Releasing 5 Taliban Terrorists In Exchange For Deserter Bowe Bergdahl
  • Illegally Releasing Detainees From Guantanamo Bay
  • Illegally Ordering the Assassination of American Citizens (Drone Strike against Anwar al-Aulaqi, for example)
  • And many, many others…

However, Congress will not do that.  Congresscritters of both parties should realize that the person currently occupying the Office of the President is actively working against the Constitution, which diminishes the power of Congress.  No, they are more interested in keeping the status quo than defending the Constitution and representing the People.

Which makes me wonder…

Where does Evil, the true Evil, lay?

5.6% Unemployment? Here is the real story

Obama has been touting the new unemployment numbers. Lower than they have been in a long long time. Not since the end of the Bush Presidency has the numbers been so low. But, at 5.6% here is what is really going on. from Gallup News and their writer Jim Clifton comes this telling article. Read and weep folks. We brought this on ourselves by voting the way we did.

The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment

by Jim Clifton
Here’s something that many Americans — including some of the smartest and most educated among us — don’t know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.

Right now, we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%. The cheerleading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.

None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job — if you are so hopelessly out of work that you’ve stopped looking over the past four weeks — the Department of Labor doesn’t count you as unemployed. That’s right. While you are as unemployed as one can possibly be, and tragically may never find work again, you are not counted in the figure we see relentlessly in the news — currently 5.6%. Right now, as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. Trust me, the vast majority of them aren’t throwing parties to toast “falling” unemployment.

There’s another reason why the official rate is misleading. Say you’re an out-of-work engineer or healthcare worker or construction worker or retail manager: If you perform a minimum of one hour of work in a week and are paid at least $20 — maybe someone pays you to mow their lawn — you’re not officially counted as unemployed in the much-reported 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

Yet another figure of importance that doesn’t get much press: those working part time but wanting full-time work. If you have a degree in chemistry or math and are working 10 hours part time because it is all you can find — in other words, you are severely underemployed — the government doesn’t count you in the 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.

And it’s a lie that has consequences, because the great American dream is to have a good job, and in recent years, America has failed to deliver that dream more than it has at any time in recent memory. A good job is an individual’s primary identity, their very self-worth, their dignity — it establishes the relationship they have with their friends, community and country. When we fail to deliver a good job that fits a citizen’s talents, training and experience, we are failing the great American dream.

Gallup defines a good job as 30+ hours per week for an organization that provides a regular paycheck. Right now, the U.S. is delivering at a staggeringly low rate of 44%, which is the number of full-time jobs as a percent of the adult population, 18 years and older. We need that to be 50% and a bare minimum of 10 million new, good jobs to replenish America’s middle class.

I hear all the time that “unemployment is greatly reduced, but the people aren’t feeling it.” When the media, talking heads, the White House and Wall Street start reporting the truth — the percent of Americans in good jobs; jobs that are full time and real — then we will quit wondering why Americans aren’t “feeling” something that doesn’t remotely reflect the reality in their lives. And we will also quit wondering what hollowed out the middle class.

Jim Clifton is Chairman and CEO at Gallup. So this was not just pulled out of the hat and posted cause it isn’t good for Obama. This was found because America needs the help. The correct news isn’t getting out there.

Why do they do this? For Senationalism!

“Our traveling NBC News team was rescued, surrounded, and kept alive by an armor mechanized platoon from the U.S. Army 3rd Infantry.”
-Brian Williams- NBC News-

If the truth had been told, He hadn’t been captured, he wasn’t shot at, he wasn’t even in the area till an hour later. So why do they do this? Probably like the politicians, lies are more sensational than the truth, so lies should be told.

I guess the reasoning is: Why tell the truth, when a good sensational sounding lie will get the job done.

The problem is, especially in this day of everyone having the ability to get news by just having their smart phones with them is, that the lie will come out sooner or later, usually sooner, making the teller sound stupid. Well, Brian Williams now sounds stupid.

Heard on the Tony Katz show this morning on WIBC was the clip of Brian Williams telling everyone in his broadcast that he was shot at in a helicopter by an RPG. Here is the problem. It never happened.

He said he was in a trailing helicopter, but he was really in a helicopter coming through the area an hour later after the damaged aircraft had already landed safely.

There are things you forget. There are things you will never forget. Lying is something that will always give you a story that you made up; that you will forget the details of because it never happened. Telling the truth will always get you through because the events really happened and you are not making anything up.

Getting shot at is something you would never forget. Especially if you were in a helicopter flying through the air. Especially it you were being shot at with an RPG.

So, Brian Williams of NBC lied here.

He lied to make something truthful and mundane for him, sensational, with an attempt at making him a hero cause he survived it. Like I said, the truth be told, he wasn’t even there.

So the question asked before here, will be asked again. Why do they do that? I will tell you.

They get to report on some of the most telling things in history. They get to report on things that people more important than they will ever be, do all the time. I think that Brian Williams wanted to be a part of this breaking story, and wanted to be hero worshipped for being in the middle of it. I don’t think there is anything more to this except that the truth, especially after Obama, has become irrelevant to them. The truth doesn’t matter to them unless, they get caught in a lie.

Then they will apologize without any explanation of why they lied in the first place…..because that isn’t important. What is important is them, is ‘saving face’ in the face of the lie that they told.

So they apologize and then feel that it will go away and they can go on with their lieves. This is one of the many reasons that this society is coming down around our ears and becoming a mess at our feet. The truth doesn’t matter anymore, when a good lie will suffice. Sadly, even our president thinks this way. God Help us all.
