I Knew the Right Wing Extremist that Lee Harvey Oswald Tried to Assassinate

I believe the above photo of General Walker, on the left,
was taken in front of Little Rock Central High School in 1957

In the fall of 1964 I was attending a very small private college in Brookhaven, Mississippi (Whitworth College). The school a very old college dated back to the Elizabeth Female Academy in the 1800's. It only had about 30 students at that time and not too many years after my graduation in 1965 would close its doors forever. That fall in 1964, I was a young man recently out of the military and in my third year. I was loaded up with political science courses and my favorite professor, Dr Caskey, was an old man who had taught for many years at Mississippi College in the Jackson area. He retired from there because of his age, but like many older people couldn't stay away from his chosen profession--teaching. So he took a position at the then struggling school, Whitworth College, where I first met him. The old man had many political connections and for some unknown reason took a liking to me and my parents who lived in Brookhaven. I could go on with many details of this relationship, but to shorten this story I'll quickly get to the point. Dr. Caskey was a close personal friend of Governor Ross Barnett and it was through this connection that General Walker was invited to speak at our campus as small as it was.

I remember the night clearly, as if it were yesterday. The auditorium, a large building that still stands near the center of Brookhaven was only sparsely populated that evening when General Walker, Former Governor Ross Barnett and Dr. Caskey entered thought a side door and ascended to the stage. Dr. Caskey introduced the Governor and the Governor then introduced General Walker---the applause was polite, but not deafening. Walker spoke for some time and I remember only bits and pieces of the actual text. It was primarily about the threat of communism and what he saw as a communist leaning media and communist in high places in the government. After the speech I was honored with a personal introduction to the Governor and to General Walker and was filled with youthful pride when Dr Caskey referred to me as his best student. And then I shook the hand of this great "Right Wing Extremist", Major General Edwin Walker. A man who, just a little over a year earlier had been in the cross-hairs of Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald fired a single shot at the general with the same weapon he would later kill President Kennedy with, missing only because the bullet was deflected by the wooden frame of the window.

It was indeed ironic that the man who ordered by way of his Secretary of Defense, Robert McNamara; that General Walker should be releaved of his command as commander of the 24th Infantry Division in Germany in 1961, and then reassigned to a somewhat obscure post in Hawaii, would be targeted and killed by the same assassin that attempted the assassination of General Walker.

I haven't thought about this meeting for many years, but this evening while driving by the old campus that day suddenly came into focus again, so decided to share it with my readers.

If you read the below bio bear in mind that is is taken from "Wikipedia" so you are reading something that could have been written by the MSM, it other words its slanted stongly to the left. General Walker's positions were not that radical for the time he lived in except when viewed by those on the then political left. So give this American war hero a break. He was not perfect, but is owed respect by the citizens of the country for which he fought.

Major Gereral Edwin A. Walker
Place of birth Center Point, Texas
Allegiance United States of America
Service/branch United States Army
Rank Major General

Battles/wars World War II
Korean War
Major General Edwin Anderson Walker (November 10, 1909 – October 31, 1993) of the U.S. Army was known for his conservative political views and for being an attempted assassination target of Lee Harvey Oswald.

Early life and military career
Edwin "Ted" Walker was born in Center Point, Texas and graduated from the New Mexico Military Institute in 1927. He then attended the United States Military Academy, where he graduated in 1931.[1] During World War II, Walker commanded a subunit of the Canadian-American First Special Service Force in the invasion of Anzio, Italy in January 1944. In August 1944, Walker succeeded Robert T. Frederick as the unit's commanding officer. The FSSF landed on the Hyeres Islands off of the French Riviera, taking out a strong German garrison.

Walker again saw combat in the Korean War, commanding the Third Infantry Division's Seventh Infantry and was senior advisor to the First Korean Corps. He next became the commander of the Arkansas Military district in Little Rock, Arkansas. During his years in Arkansas, he implemented an order from President Eisenhower in 1957 to quell civil disturbances during the desegregation of Central High School in Little Rock.

In 1959, General Walker was sent to Germany to command the 24th Infantry Division. In 1961, however, he became involved in controversy. Walker initiated an anti-communist indoctrination program for troops called "Pro Blue" (due to Free World troops being coloured blue on maps)[2] and was accused of distributing right-wing literature from the John Birch Society to the soldiers of his division. He was also quoted by a newspaper, the Overseas Weekly, as saying that Harry S. Truman, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Dean Acheson were "definitely pink." Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara relieved Walker of his command, while an inquiry was conducted, and in October Walker was reassigned to Hawaii to become assistant chief of staff for training and operations in the Pacific. Instead, Walker resigned from the Army on November 2, 1961. Said Walker: "It will be my purpose now, as a civilian, to attempt to do what I have found it no longer possible to do in uniform."[3]

In February 1962, Walker entered the race for Governor of Texas, but finished last among six candidates in a Democratic primary election in May that was won by John Connally.[4]

Walker organized protests in September 1962 against the use of federal troops to enforce the enrollment of African-American James Meredith at the racially segregated University of Mississippi. His public statement on September 29:

This is Edwin A. Walker. I am in Mississippi beside Gov. Ross Barnett. I call for a national protest against the conspiracy from within. Rally to the cause of freedom in righteous indignation, violent vocal protest, and bitter silence under the flag of Mississippi at the use of Federal troops. This today is a disgrace to the nation in 'dire peril,' a disgrace beyond the capacity of anyone except its enemies. This is the conspiracy of the crucifixion by anti-Christ conspirators of the Supreme Court in their denial of prayer and their betrayal of a nation.[5]

After a violent, 15-hour riot broke out on the campus, on September 30, in which two people were killed and six federal marshals were shot, Walker was arrested on four federal charges, including insurrection against the United States. Walker posted bond and returned home to Dallas, where he was greeted by a crowd of 200 supporters.[6] After a federal grand jury adjourned in January 1963 without indicting him, the charges were dropped. Because the dismissal of the charges was without prejudice, the charges could have been reinstated within five years.[7]

[edit] Assassination attempt
It was around this time that Walker got Lee Harvey Oswald's attention. Oswald, a self-proclaimed Marxist,[8] considered Walker a "fascist" and the leader of a "fascist organization."[9] A front page story on Walker in the October 7, 1962, issue of the Worker, a Communist Party newspaper to which Oswald subscribed, warned "the Kennedy administration and the American people of the need for action against [Walker] and his allies." On October 8, Oswald quit his job and moved to Dallas, with no explanation. Five days after the front page news on January 22, 1963 that Walker's federal charges had been dropped,[10] Oswald ordered a revolver by mail, using the alias "A.J. Hidell."[11]

In February 1963, Walker was making news by joining forces with evangelist Billy James Hargis in an anti-communist tour called "Operation Midnight Ride".[12] In a speech Walker made on March 5, reported in the Dallas Times Herald, he called on the United States military to "liquidate the scourge that has descended upon the island of Cuba."[13] Seven days later, Oswald ordered by mail a Mannlicher-Carcano rifle, using the alias "A. Hidell."[14]

Oswald began to put Walker under surveillance, taking pictures of Walker's Dallas home on the weekend of March 9–10.[15] He planned the assassination for April 10, ten days after he was fired from the photography firm where he worked. He told his wife later that he chose a Wednesday evening because the neighborhood would be relatively crowded because of services in a church adjacent to Walker's home; he would not stand out and could mingle with the crowds if necessary to make his escape. He left a note in Russian for his wife Marina with instructions should he be caught.[16] Walker was sitting at a desk in his dining room when Oswald fired at him from less than a hundred feet (30 m) away. Walker survived only because the bullet struck the wooden frame of the window, which deflected its path. However, he was injured in the forearm by fragments.

At the time, authorities had no idea who attempted to kill Walker. A police detective, D.E. McElroy, commented that "Whoever shot at the general was playing for keeps. The sniper wasn't trying to scare him. He was shooting to kill."

Marina Oswald stated later that she had seen Oswald burn most of his plans in the bathtub, though she hid the note he left her in a cookbook, with the intention of bringing it to the police should Oswald again attempt to kill Walker or anyone else. Marina later quoted her husband as saying, "Well, what would you say if somebody got rid of Hitler at the right time? So if you don't know about General Walker, how can you speak up on his behalf?"[17] Oswald's involvement in the attempt on Walker's life was suspected within hours of his arrest on November 22, 1963, following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.[18] But police had no evidence of Oswald's involvement in the Walker attempt until early December 1963, when the note and some of the photos were found by authorities. The bullet was too badly damaged to run conclusive ballistics tests, but neutron activation tests later determined that it was "extremely likely" the bullet was a Mannlicher-Carcano bullet manufactured by the Western Cartridge Company, the same ammunition used in the Kennedy assassination.[19]

Oswald later wrote to Arnold Johnson of the Communist Party, U.S.A., that on the evening of October 23, 1963 he had attended an "ultra right" meeting headed by Gen. Edwin A. Walker.[20]

[edit] Associated Press v. Walker
Angered by negative publicity he was receiving for his conservative political views, Walker began to file libel lawsuits against various media outlets. One of these suits was in response to coverage of his participation in the University of Mississippi riot, specifically that he had "led a charge of students against federal marshals" and that he had "assumed command of the crowd."[21] A Texas trial court in 1964 found the statements false and defamatory.[22] The decision was appealed, as Associated Press v. Walker, all the way to the United States Supreme Court,[23] but the Court ruled against Walker and found that although the statements may have been false, the Associated Press was not guilty of reckless disregard in their reporting about Walker. The Court, which had previously said that public officials could not recover damages unless they could prove actual malice, extended this to public figures as well.

[edit] Later life
By resigning instead of retiring, Walker was unable to draw a pension from the Army. He made statements at the time to the Dallas Morning News that he had "refused" to take his pension. The Army restored his pension rights in 1982. He had made several previous requests for his pension dating back to 1973. read more
Several more points before I close this story. While thinking about those now distant events I recall hearing about the assassination attempt on General Walker who was at that time a target of the major networks--only three at that time NBC, CBS and ABC, those were the MSM of the day for that's about all their was. But back to the point I was making. The reports coming over the evening news implied that General Walker probably staged the event in order to draw more attention to himself. This line of thinking and reporting by the MSM was common even back then. On the day of the Kennedy assassination, one of the first things to come across from the network news, while the fate of Kennedy was still unknown, was a comment made by one of the commenter's on the major networks and I remember it clearly, "Dallas has been a hotbed of "right wing activity". Plainly pointing the finger at those like General Walker and the groups associated with him. Of course, when it was learned that Oswald was a committed communist all talk of the right wing conspiracy vanished. A left wing or communist conspiracy idea however never was mentioned. A shudder to think what would have happened if Osward had been a member of some right wing group. But those groups who Oswald associated with were seldom mentioned and the lone gunman story prevailed and that story was adopted by the Warren Commission and the MSM who drove public opinion in those days. Walker continued to be a target of the MSM of that day for a number of years, much as Sarah Palin is today. This was the state of the news in the early and mid 1960's sadly things haven't changed much and the MSM still continues its attacks on those it sees as a threat to their way of thinking, but happily today we do have FOX News and talk radio. Neither of those two existed at that time, so I suppose things have changed to some degree.

Twilight Zone of the Trolls

I suppose we've all had our run ins with these seemingly harmless little pesty critters from time to time. And some of us eagerly await the next visit so we can blast them with both barrels while others curse and condemn the often vile acts of these unwanted visitors. But most of us just swat the little buggers away as we would a fly at the picnic table and think little about it, because to us they are no more than that lowly insect. But I must tell you we are wrong, we are very wrong to dismiss these trolls, these visitors from another planet. For most of us live in a world of moral clarity, we live in a world of right and wrong, in a world of defined borders. In short, we have values and principals and we have found our way in a world of lost souls. These intruders however have no such values and for them right and wrong, good and evil does not exit. Theirs is a world of grays with no black and white and no absolutes, with no beginning and no end. And when they come into our world, into our pool of clarity they will always cloud the water, sometimes ever so slightly and at other times they will muddy our crystal pool. Yes, we swat them away and pat ourselves on the back for the quickness in which we've dispatched them. But for them, they will leave satisfied and set their sites on their next victim. So do what you will next time you get a visit from these unwelcome intruders, these visitors from another land but always remember their goal is to muddy your pool and the longer they stay the less clear things become and an unseen seed may have been planted in your backyard. As for your visitor he feels no pain for he feeds on your well aimed volleys because he lives in the murky "Twilight Zone of the Trolls" and he wants your company for he has no friends.

Long John Silver's Buried Treasure

Another red flag goes up on the "Public Option". Many constitutional experts are now saying that forcing people to buy health insurance may be unconstitutional and a stretch of the "interstate commerce clause" in the constitution. Of course constitutional scholars on both sides of the issue will disagree with those favoring a strict constructionist view coming down against the "public option" and those on the liberal side saying that the "public option" falls under the interstate commerce clause. Unfortunately the issue cannot be decided until a law is enacted and then only after some years following a challenge will the issue finally land in the lap of the U.S. Supreme Court---this is how our system works. It has it faults, but there is nothing better around. This should, however be a valid debating point in the upcoming discussions in the Senate and the U.S. House. We haven't heard much on this but it is time to bring it before the people---the judicial process just takes too long and often decisions are not reached until long after the damage is done.

I've been fair to both sides now let me tell you what I really think about those judges who give liberal interpretations to the constitution. Those judges who presume to tell us what the founders were thinking and not what the founders put down in writing. Hell I can't tell you what my wife is thinking half the time and they judges in their black robes presume to tell me what Jefferson was thinking over 200 years ago, bullshit! Let the words on paper, the words in the Constitution, speak for the founders. These stupid, and they are stupid judges are in effect telling us that the founders were dumb in that they didn't know how to put their thoughts into words and that they(these modern judges) really know what the founders meant to say, but couldn't because of some unknown impairment, so they will provide the words, words that fit their personal agenda's whatever that maybe be from year to year or just day to day. To those liberal members of the Supreme Court who have such great insight, such great vision that they know what a man who has been dead for over 200 years was thinking when he wrote sometime entirely different, I say, "damn you're smart guys, teach me how to do that so I can find Long John Silver's buried treasure."

The constitution allows the federal government to regulate interstate commerce but legal experts argue the insurance requirement is just an attempt to dictate personal behavior.
By Jim Angle

The requirement that everyone buy health insurance -- a central element to President Obama's health care plan -- is flatly unconstitutional, legal experts argue.

"At the heart of this plan is an unprecedented imposition on individual liberty," constitutional attorney David Rivkin told FOX News.

The constitution allows the federal government to regulate interstate commerce but Rivkin argues the insurance requirement is just an attempt to dictate personal behavior.

"What’s unique about here is the mandate imposed on individuals merely because they live," he said. "Not connected with any economic activity, not because they grow something, make something, compose something. Merely because they live. And this is absolutely unprecedented."

During the Prohibition era, the federal government dictated personal behavior by making the consumption of alcohol illegal. But to do so, the nation had to pass a constitutional amendment.

Health care reform depends on the individual mandate, in part because it needs the money and good health of younger people to fund the system and spread the risk.

"When you're 25 and healthy you think you're invincible. You think you're never going to get sick, never going to get into an accident," said Doug Kendall of the Constitutional Accountability Center.

And so young people don't buy insurance. But if one gets into an accident and runs up huge medical bills, taxpayers foot the bill, Kendall said.

"The fundamental point behind pushing people into the private insurance market is to make sure that uninsured individuals who can pay for health insurance don't impose costs on other tax payers," he said.

Kendall argues the interstate commerce clause justifies such action because it regulates insurance and health care. But when the Clinton administration wanted an individual mandate in the 1990s, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office also called such a requirement "unprecedented."

"The government has never required people to buy any good or service, as condition of lawful residence in the United States," congressional budget officers said.

Air Force One to Fly to Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen

Air Force One will spirit our great commander-in-chief off to "Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen" , as the old song goes, this week while American troops are dying in the mountains of Afghanistan awaiting their fearless leader's decision to send re-enforcements to help them turn the tide of battle against Islamic terrorist. This guy spends more time on Air Force One than a black Chicago pimp spends in his elongated black car with its fur-covered seats riding around checking on his "ho's". Leading me to wonder who does the work back at the Oval Office, I suppose its those many Czars which we know little about. In my view Barack is fast becoming the "pimp-in-chief" instead of the "Commander-in-Chief". This new "Pimp-in-Chief is literally going to the street corners of the world and selling his goods to the dumb "whitey's", but at home things are changing and this "pimp-in-chief" is approaching a point where he must face the stark reality of not being able to "sell 'Puss..y' on a troop train" here at home. So enjoy your trip Barry, enjoy meeting up with Michelle who will arrive ahead of you, enjoy the fine restaurants and the Danish pastries, enjoy the good life while our brave troops are dying in the field. Yes, you fake command-in-chief, you two-faced coward enjoy yourself now for the clock is ticking and time is winding down for you sir are about to be busted by an angry America.

Obama Draws Criticism for Pausing to Promote Chicago Olympics Bid
The White House announced Monday that the president will travel Thursday night to Copenhagen to make a personal appearance before the International Olympic Committee to promote Chicago as the host city for the 2016 Summer Games.

President Obama is taking his eye off the ball, his critics say, chiding him for his plan to travel to Denmark to make the case for having his hometown of Chicago host the 2016 Olympics.

The White House announced Monday that the president will travel Thursday night to Copenhagen to make a personal appearance before the International Olympic Committee as it prepares to announce the host city for the 2016 Summer Games. Obama will join his wife, Michelle, who is leading the U.S. delegation, along with senior adviser Valerie Jarrett.

But with the health care debate still brewing, with Iran stoking international concerns over its nuclear program and with a decision pending on how to deal with the rising violence in Afghanistan, the president will be leaving at a key time for his administration.

Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy

Here we go again that "vast right-wing conspiracy" is back and this time its Bill not Hillary who is sounding the alarm. To a certain extent Bill has it right, but I would contend it is a "Vast Grass-Roots Conspiracy" that's directed at Barack (the usurper) and I'm proud to be a member of that conspiracy or maybe conspiracy isn't the correct word as that's something usually done in secret and here well everything is above board unlike the under-the-table quickies (I mean quick deals) of the Clinton Oval Office or the secrecy that surrounds the Obama White House. Clinton says in the below article that those in this grand conspiracy want Obama to fail---that we do. For the success of the Obama agenda would mean the destruction of a system that has served us well for over 200 years, a system that has given us the highest standard of living in the world, a system that tens of thousands have fought and died for. Yes, if Obama has his way the torch of Lady Liberty will dim and that beacon of hope will fade and the millions who seek a safe harbor will turn away. So finally Slick Willy, I can agree with you on something---yes we the members of that VRWC want Obama to fail "Yes We Do!"
WASHINGTON -- Bill Clinton said a vast, right-wing conspiracy that once targeted him is now focusing on President Obama.

The ex-president made the comment in a television interview when he was asked about one of the signature moments of the Monica Lewinsky affair over a decade ago. Back then, first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton used the term "vast, right-wing conspiracy" to describe how her husband's political enemies were out to destroy his presidency.

Bill Clinton was asked on NBC's "Meet the Press" whether the conspiracy is still there. He replied: "You bet. Sure it is. It's not as strong as it was because America has changed demographically. But it's as virulent as it was."

Clinton said that this time around, the focus is on Obama and "their agenda seems to be wanting him to fail."

The Young American Left

Lucy The Lefty

Was watching Sean Hannity this past Friday night as he interviewed two girls who had taken part in the recent violent G20 protest in Pittsburgh. These two students both from a nearby university, where one was a graduate student in a doctoral program, were asked why they were participating in the demonstrations where some violent incidents have occurred and what their view on that was. Both indicated they did not take part in the violence, but at the same time refused to condemn it. This was to be expected. Then Hannity went on to question the two about capitalism and both quickly condemned it and went on to call for a re-distribution of wealth. This apparently is their real goal. They basically say that 200 very wealthy people in the world control 99% of the wealth and that if that wealth was taken from them by taxation and re-distributed that each person in the world would have an additional $40,000 dollars. I've tried to see how they came up with that figure but I'm lost. But the girls believed that to be a fact and something that would solve many of the problems faced by the poor throughout the world. Hell, lets say these two are correct about the $40,000. So let us take that money and re-distribute it(that is after all Obama's philosophy). Now what happens? First, did we create any more wealth(that is, real wealth--food, clothing or shelter) the answer is quickly obvious to any thinking person. We only moved dollars from a small group of people to a much larger group of people---that's all! Can I take the $40,000 and go out and buy more food---only for a moment, whats for sell will quickly vanish. Can I buy a new car, better run to the car lot---they will all be gone in about 5 minutes, assuming there are any salesmen there---they are all out buying what they can at the quickly emptying store shelves. Who will pick the next vegetables for the dinner table, not the migrant workers for they will be basking in their new found wealth---the $40,000 they were given. Damn no one's working, no one's producing and the bosses could care less---the more they make the more the government takes. I could go on and on, but you get the idea. Sadly these two girls on Hannity's show did not and they are both in graduate school at one of our great universities the future leaders of our country, the hope of the next generation---oops!!! So here my friends you have the youthful Obama voters, here you have our finest, here you have the enlightened youth, they are no longer the "Pepsi Generation" but rather the new hip multitasker's who can "flip you off and chew gum at the same time!!!

The Judgement of Obama

Obama is about to face one of his toughest foreign policy decisions. Does he send some 30,000 plus more troops into Afghanistan or does he continue on the current path where we are in a no win situation. If he complies with General McChrystal's request he angers his base the extreme left in this country, if he continues the war with the forces that are there the outcome will be uncertain at best and could be a disaster. This will not be an easy call.

As I see it we must jump in with both feet and use all our resources and push for some type of quick victory or just get out. The latter does not seem to be a good choice in that a withdrawal would give the Taliban and al Qaeda a platform to launch future attacks against our homeland not to mention that terrorist throughout the world would declare a great victory and new recruiting posters would go up hailing their great victory over the United States. There are no good solutions to this problem and this is one where Obama will have difficulty in straddling the fence, something he usually does. I believe however, that unlike King Soloman, Obama will split the baby and the war in Afghanistan will become even a more protracted conflict and American causalities will increase to a point where the public will no longer support our effort there and in the end we will leave the field to the enemy. The world is watching and the clock is ticking!

by Ron Russell

Gen. Stanley McChrystal, who is expected to request 30,000 to 40,000 additional troops, met with Joint Chiefs Chairman Mike Mullen at Ramstein Air Base in Germany, FOX News has confirmed.

Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, received the widely anticipated troop request Friday from the top commander in Afghanistan, aides told FOX News.

Mullen, accompanied by Gen. David Petraeus and other top military officials, met at Ramstein Air Base in Germany with Gen. Stanley McChrystal, who is expected to ask for 30,000 to 40,000 additional troops. Mullen is now headed back to the U.S., FOX News has confirmed.

Mullen asked McChrystal for the meeting earlier in the week following the leak of McChrystal's strategic assessment to hear directly from his commander what resources and how many troops he will need to succeed in Afghanistan, aides told FOX News.

"He wanted to understand the request for himself before it arrives in Washington and he is asked to discuss, defend it," an aide told FOX News.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates is expected to receive the troop request Friday. But Gates will hold onto the request until the White House and Pentagon get to a "proper stage" in their assessment of the war in Afghanistan, a Pentagon spokesman said earlier this week, explaining that it is premature for the request to be considered until the assessment is fully reviewed.

Mullen hand-picked McChrystal to lead the fight in Afghanistan after firing Gen. David McKiernan in May.

Progressive Racism

Progressive racism is being spewed from the university campus, from the halls of congress, from the MSM, from the high schools, and from the many hate sites on the Internet. Sadly it is all done in what many have referred to as a post racial America. Those on the American left cannot afford to let this issue die, they cannot just let it fad away. They have far too much invested in this issue. In the major metropolitan areas without this issue they would lose tens of thousands of voters. Those on the left are race-baiters and play the race card in every debate. Its always there fall back position when they begin to lose their arguments on radical positions they can defend no other way. Many of the white leaders of the so-called progressive movement (I say so-called progressive, because this movement is not new its very old and anything but progressive--it is regressive) have nothing, nothing at all in common with the black masses. They see the black man as a means to an end and will toss him aside when it become expedient. The black vote has always been cheap to buy. Liberal politicians have known this for years. The 40 acres and a mule ruse has evolved over the years to the food stamp, to affirmative action, to free medical care, and of course the all encompassing "free lunch". What has been the cost of all these free hand outs? Little to the politicians (they use others money to foot the bill); but to the black man these give aways have cost him his dignity, and his self-esteem, and to many his political freedom. Many blacks feel an obligation to vote for these unscrupulous political leaders who have promised much, but delivered only misery to the poor black. Keeping the black man down is the goal of many leaders on the left, for its only in keeping them down that they will continue to have their support.

The progressive left finds its support among the poor and those elitist who feel responsible for the economic conditions of poor blacks. Sadly, this assumption by some progressives is correct, in that their policies have led to this situation among the poor blacks. Those well-intended elitist on the left are caught in a vicious cycle from which there is no escape. They offer a hand out, thinking it is a hand up. The reality of their position escapes them. But there is another group on the left, a far more dangerous one. These leaders know the reality of there positions and all they are seeking is power, power at any cost to achieve their ends. Our current president falls into this group. Obama will use what means it takes to increase his power, he will quickly toss aside anyone, any group who stands in his way as evidenced by his abandonment of a life long friend and mentor, the infamous reverend Wright.
Finally, racism does exist and will always exist. Racism is found on the right as well as on the left. The big difference in contemporary America is that many on the left encourage racism and rely on the "race card" to advance their political agenda. They will continue to keep the black man down, not because they feel that's where he belongs; but because is doing so they have created a cause for those naive whites who follow their progressive beliefs. And the poor black, well he will remain a victim. Not a victim of racism from the right (as was the case for many years in the south and throughout the nation); but a victim of a far worse form of racism by those who seem to be offering a hand up, while at the same time keeping the poor black down for political reasons. The present day Democratic party in now the old Republican party of "forty acres and a mule". by Ron Russell

Failure of the United Nations

The United Nations of today is NOT the United Nations of Roosevelt or Churchhill, if those two men were alive today most in the UN would be calling for them to be tried as war criminals and condemned for there actions during WWII. The UN of today is totally dominated by the forces of rampant nationalism, neo-socialist, and neo-communist. These forces totally control the General Assembly and therefore most actions of that organization. The security council has become powerless to act because each of the five permanent members has a veto and all seldom agree on anything. This UN funded primarily by the United States is an organization that hates this country and the state of Israel and no longer represents the views of the average American citizen, but has the views of the radical American far left and I should add the views of the current administration who sadly are part of the hate-America crowd. We have in Obama, a president who is in lockstep with the UN and not with the people of his own country. You know something is wrong when when the radical leader of Libya, Muammar Gaddafi wants Obama to be president for life---he said that just yesterday in his rambling address to the General Assembly. The UN has become a place where terrorists are praised to the cheering crowds in the General Assembly while the USA and Israel are condemned for simply trying to defend themselves. The American taxpayer has had enough, and yet we continue to contribute billions of dollars to these radicals at the UN, to these people who condemn us at every turn. Without the funding of U S taxpayers the UN would collapse and this useless organization who hates America would cease to exist. Below is a brief portion of Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to the UN today. A speech which was not well received by the delegates in attendance.
by Ron Russell

Netanyahu Condemns U.N. for Allowing Ahmadinejad to Deliver Address
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed astonishment that the United Nations would give Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad "legitimacy" just six decades after the Holocaust.

Holding aloft evidence of Hitler's Final Solution, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday railed against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for his denial of the Holocaust and scolded the United Nations for allowing Ahmadinejad to speak during its opening session of the 64th U.N. General Assembly.

Offering detailed reminders of the war that sent 6 million Jews to their deaths in concentration camps and recalling the agreement within the world body to create the Jewish State, Netanyahu took his turn at the dais to express astonishment at what he witnessed a day earlier.

He commended those who boycotted Ahmadinejad's speech, but condemned those who allowed it.

"To those who gave this Holocaust denier a hearing, I say on behalf of my people. ... Have you no shame? Have you no decency?" Netanyahu said.

Netanyahu scolded the United Nations for giving the Iranian president "legitimacy" just six decades after the Holocaust. Ahmadinejad addressed the body Wednesday, and in the run-up to the session repeated his belief that the Holocaust is a myth.

"What a disgrace," Netanyahu said. "What a mockery of the charter of the United Nations."read more from FOX

No Political Correctness Here!


In an age of "tip-toeing through the tulips" it is quite refreshing to hear someone say what he means. It is like a breath of fresh air in an otherwise stale world. Few people these days feel free to really say what they mean. They are muzzled like some mad dog or feel restrained for fear of offending someone in a world where every word seems to echo like the whispers in some giant canyon. Time and time again when someone dares to cross the line of "political correctness" they are quickly admonished by the "pc" police. Recently, Joe Wilson dared to shout out what he perceived to be the truth when he yelled out "you lie", he was abruptly reigned in and scolded by his peers who hide behind the wall of political correctness. Sadly, truth is the biggest victim here. Our political leaders hide behind this invisible screen and seldom venture out. For most this provides a cloak to hide their real feelings, their real attitudes and their real agendas. Because its in this atmosphere they can appear to be all things to all people and hopefully maintain their coveted positions in the halls of power where they are showered with accolades and honors. Honors they do NOT deserve for in being less than honest they are cheating the people who elected them. These leaders are NOT leaders, but rather puppets and the grand puppet master is POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

An illegal alien in Polk County Florida who got pulled over in a routine traffic stop ended up 'executing' the deputy who stopped him..
The deputy was shot eight times, including once behind his right ear at close range. Another deputy was wounded and a police dog killed. A state wide manhunt ensued.

The murderer was found hiding in a wooded area and as soon as he took a shot at the SWAT team, officers opened fire on him.

They hit the guy 68 times.

Naturally, the liberal media went nuts and asked why they had to shoot the poor undocumented immigrant 68 times.

Sheriff Grady Judd told the Orlando Sentinel:
"Because that's all the ammunition we had."

Now, is that just about the all-time greatest answer or what!

The Coroner also reported that the illegal alien died of natural causes.

When asked by a reporter how that could be since there were 68 bullet wounds in his body, he simply replied "when you are shot 68 times you are naturally gonna die.

Attack on Iran

It seems that the only question is the time of the attack. No sanctions will stop the Iranians from going forward with their efforts to obtain the bomb. This is something that the current conservative government in Israel will NOT allow. The recent more liberal government had indicated basically the same thing. Time is winding down and moving toward that moment when the planes will be launched and the world will hold its breath as the bombs fall on Iranian targets. Wondering not what the damage was to those nuclear sites, but instead worrying about the the Iranian response to the attack. The response has always been in the forefront of the debate for most nations are NOT concerned with an Iranian bomb (that is most nations with the obvious exception of Israel and conservatives here in this country), for most the fear of the unknown (the Iranian response) is far greater than the fear of the known(an Iranian bomb). This clearly shows a fatal weakness of our allies. A weakness that Iran has exploited up to this point with great success. But the clock is ticking and I suspect the plans have been finalized and their targets pinpointed.

Israel will attack Iran's nuclear facilities before the end of the year if the West has not launched an attempt to destroy the regime with crippling sanctions, a former senior defence official has claimed.

By Damien McElroy

Ephraim Sneh, Israel's deputy defence minister until 2007, said a nuclear-armed Iran was an unacceptable threat to Israel. No Israeli government could put its faith in President Barack Obama's efforts to bring Tehran to the negotiating table over its nuclear programme, he said.

"The Israeli government is the only entity that is responsible for the existence of the Jewish people," he said. "Iran has been explicit in its hostility to Israel time and again. They would use these weapons.

Israel pledges to protect itself from 'new Holocaust' threat posed by Iran's nuclear programme"We believe that Iran has the capacity and the delivery capability for nuclear weapons. They can proceed to production. We have got two months to act - before the end of 2009."

Iran and the major world power are to start talks on the stand off over its nuclear programme, which stands in violation of United Nations resolutions, on Oct 1. Mr Obama's offer to talk to Iran without pre-conditions has made Israel nervous that Tehran will use detente as a cover to complete its drive for an atom bomb.

"If Iran gained the bomb it would trigger a regional arms race with Saudi and Egypt quickly obtaining weapons," he said. "We would be living next to three Pakistans."

Mr Sneh believes Iran's regime has been weakened by the pro-democracy uprising in the aftermath of the disputed presidential election. It could be brought to its knees by sanctions curtailing imports of petrol, the sale of spare parts for energy production, freezing its banks out of the global monetary system and banning cross-border investment.

But Israeli society would change irrevocably if the cleric-led government acquired the bomb. "We are not looking for adventures but we cannot take the risk," said Mr Sneh. Read full story at The Telegraph

When is a Tax not a Tax?

Today on ABC News Obama finally got pushed a little by George Stephanopoulos on a question of Taxes. Like many politicians the word "tax" is to be avoided at all cost and they often try to disguise "taxes" anyway they can. Today, Obama got caught when George Stephanopoulos pulled out a Webster's Dictionary and read the defination. Obama quickly recovered from the unexpected attack by the ABC anchorman and came back with a somewhat pitiful response. On a personal note I met George Stephanopoulos many years ago at the home of his aunt in North Little Rock, Arkansas. His aunt had been a close friend of my mother in Hattiesburg, MS some years before. George was a young boy at the time about 13 years old. I only recall the meeting because of the name---difficult to pronounce. I have to give the youngest some credit for today's interview, although I'm not a fan.

Obama, Stephanopoulos Spar Over Definition of 'Tax'
In an interview airing Sunday, ABC News' George Stephanopoulos pressed the president on his plan to require people to purchase health insurance.

President Obama and ABC News' George Stephanopoulos got in a testy sparring match Sunday over whether the president's health care plan includes a tax increase, leading the host to look up the Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of taxes.

In the interview airing Sunday, Stephanopoulos pressed the president on his plan to require people to purchase health insurance.

"Under this mandate, the government is forcing people to spend money, fining you if you don't. How is that not a tax?" the host asked.

Obama responded: " No, but -- but, George, you -- you can't just make up that language and decide that that's called a tax increase."

Stephanopoulos then offered the dictionary definition.

"I don't think I'm making it up. Merriam-Webster's dictionary: 'Tax, a charge, usually of money, imposed by authority on persons or property for public purposes,'" he said.

Visibly taken aback, Obama rejected the notion it was a tax increase and said pulling the dictionary out was a sign the host was "stretching" a little.

"No. That -- that's not true, George. The -- for us to say that you've got to take a responsibility to get health insurance is absolutely not a tax increase," Obama said.

Holder and Obama Gutting the CIA

BHO and Eric Holder have set a course aimed at destroying the effectiveness of the nations foremost spy agency. They have both and I repeat both taken steps at undermining this vital department of the federal government and their continuing effort pose a real and present danger to national security. Security which is the presidents most sacred vow. He has sworn to protect the people of the United States and is doing something that is making us less secure. He is doing this to appease his radical friends on the far, far left of American politics and he is doing this to gain favor in certain foreign circles all at the expense of your and my security. I would give him a new title for he is certainly not acting like a president of the United States, but rather a President of the World, that part of the world that leans left. He is making overtures to leaders in Iran, to leaders in certain Latin American countries where Marxist have gained or are gaining power. He has slapped some our best allies in the face such as Poland and other eastern European countries. Countries that have had a full taste of socialism and communism and have totally rejected those failed policies. Policies that the Obama administration are now embracing. Let us face a simple truth, yes I'll say it, Obama is a full blown radical socialist and he proves this more and more every day by his actions and those who he appoints to positions of power around him and his attempt to undermine such great American institutions as the CIA. Could he have something to hide, something so dangerous to him personally that he will destroy anyone or any organization that might uncover the lies in his past. He doesn't have to worry about the FBI, for his close personal friend Eric Holder, the Attorney General is at the helm there and doing his bidding. But quite obviously, the CIA provides some concerns. So I'm not asking Obama to back off on the CIA probe, because it will not happen. While the destruction of the CIA in not in the national security interest it is however necessary for Obama's personal security interest. Below is a letter sent to this usurper by former CIA directors:

Dear Mr. President:

We have served as directors of Central Intelligence or directors of the CIA for presidents reaching back over 35 years. We respectfully urge you to exercise your authority to reverse Attorney General Holder's August 24 decision to re-open the criminal investigation of CIA interrogations that took place following the attacks of September 11.

Our reasons for making this recommendation are as follows.

The post-September 11 interrogations for which the attorney general is opening an inquiry were investigated four years ago by career prosecutors. The CIA, at its own initiative, forwarded fewer than 20 instances where agency officers appeared to have acted beyond their existing legal authorities.

Career prosecutors under the supervision of the US Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia determined that one prosecution (of a CIA contractor) was warranted. A conviction was later obtained. They determined that prosecutions were not warranted in the other cases. In a number of these cases the CIA subsequently took administrative disciplinary steps against the individuals involved.

Attorney General Holder's decision to re-open the criminal investigation creates an atmosphere of continuous jeopardy for those whose cases the Department of Justice had previously declined to prosecute. Moreover, there is no reason to expect that the re-opened criminal investigation will remain narrowly focused.

If criminal investigations closed by career prosecutors during one administration can so easily be reopened at the direction of political appointees in the next, declinations of prosecution will be rendered meaningless. Those men and women who undertake difficult intelligence assignments in the aftermath of an attack such as September 11 must believe there is permanence in the legal rules that govern their actions.

They must be free, as the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Senator Lieberman, has put it: "to do their dangerous and critical jobs without worrying that years from now a future attorney general will authorize a criminal investigation of them for behavior that a previous attorney general concluded was authorized and legal." Similar deference needs to be shown to fact-based decisions made by career prosecutors years ago.

Not only will some members of the intelligence community be subjected to costly financial and other burdens from what amounts to endless criminal investigations, but this approach will seriously damage the willingness of many other intelligence officers to take risks to protect the country. In our judgment such risk-taking is vital to success in the long and difficult fight against the terrorists who continue to threaten us.

Success in intelligence often depends on surprise and deception and on creating uncertainty in the mind of an enemy. As president you have the authority to make decisions restricting substantive interrogation or any other intelligence collection method, based on legal analyses and policy recommendations.

But, the administration must be mindful that public disclosure about past intelligence operations can only help Al Qaeda elude U.S. intelligence and plan future operations. Disclosures about CIA collection operations have and will continue to make it harder for intelligence officers to maintain the momentum of operations that have saved lives and helped protect America from further attacks.

Finally, another certain result of these reopened investigations is the serious damage done to our intelligence community's ability to obtain the cooperation of foreign intelligence agencies. Foreign services are already greatly concerned about the United States' inability to maintain any secrets. They rightly fear that, through these additional investigations and the court proceedings that could follow, terrorists may learn how other countries came to our assistance in a time of peril.

The United States promised these foreign countries that their cooperation would never be disclosed. As a result of the zeal on the part of some to uncover every action taken in the post-9/11 period, many countries may decide that they can no longer safely share intelligence or cooperate with us on future counter-terrorist operations. They simply cannot rely on our promises of secrecy.

We support your stated commitment, Mr. President, to look to the future regarding these important issues. In our judgment the only way that is possible is if the criminal investigation of these interrogations that Attorney General Holder has re-opened is now re-closed.

Squirrels Eating ACORN

The little squirrels are all hard at work digging through the dirt of political corruption and finding the many hidden acorns and slowly devouring them. One by one the corrupt practices of ACORN are being exposed and a reluctant MSM is being forced to report the truth---a truth they have hidden from the public for far too long. A new day is dawning and the once powerful MSM along with ACORN is being exposed for the corrupt bunch they are. Even many of those members of congress who once supported ACORN are disassociating themselves for this criminal enterprise. A enterprise they always knew to be corrupt, but a corruption they ignored until the recent FOX News reports forced them to publicly admit it. Thanks squirrels for digging up the truth.

ACORN Considers Ending Voter Registration Work
Troubled community-organizing group Acorn announced Thursday it was considering quitting its voter-registration work amid growing outrage over its activities, a move that could hurt Democrats at the polls.

Community-organizing group Acorn said Thursday it was considering quitting its voter-registration work amid a growing political storm over its activities, a move that could hurt Democrats at the polls.

In the latest rebuke, the House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly Thursday to block the group from receiving federal funds. Republicans attached the measure attacking Acorn to an unrelated bill that advances a top Democratic priority: making the federal government the sole provider of college loans under federal programs, forcing private lenders out of the origination market. read more from FOX News

Obama Scraps Missile Defense

Obama will spend money funding such groups as ACORN and hundreds of billions to insure his friends in the auto unions maintain their power and now absolute control on many American auto makers despite the fact that past union demands have virtually destroyed that industry and now he is beginning to strip the military of weapons deemed necessary by the previous administration to defend western Europe and the United States from future Iranian missile attacks. He does this in the face of continuing Iranian buildups in their missile forces and a march toward nuclear weapons. Its the old liberal Democratic Party stance of spending wildly on domestic programs that prop up their base at the expense of cutting military expenditures. But what makes this appalling at this time is that we are in the mist of two wars against Islamic fascism and face a growing threat from the Islamic radicals in Iran. Why to go President Hussein Obama!

Pentagon Confirms Major Adjustments to European Missile Shield
Jan Fischer, the prime minister of the Czech Republic, one of two countries where the system was to be built, told reporters that the United States is shelving the missile defense plan.

The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that it has made a "major adjustment" to plans for a missile defense system in eastern Europe, after a U.S. ally said the Obama administration is shelving the system altogether.

The proposed system was pitched as a way to fend off potential attacks from Iran but it became a major irritant in relations with Russia. President Obama faced the dilemma of either setting back the gradual progress toward repairing relations with Russia or disappointing two key NATO allies, the Czech Republic and Poland, that agreed to host components of the planned system.

Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell declined to give specifics about the new changes, but said: "This improvement to the system has nothing to do with Russia and everything to do with Iran."

He said the "adjustment" was made because the "latest intelligence" shows Iran is more "fixated" on short- and medium-range missiles - the prior plans were developed with long-range, intercontinental ballistic missiles in mind.

"While the Iranian threat has developed, so too has our technology," Morrell said. Details were expected to be announced later Thursday. read more from FOX News

The New American Racist!

So that there we be no misunderstanding about the comments in the paragraph immediately following this let me stress it is satire and only meant to highlight the comments in the second paragraph. Some may see it as racist as they see Joe Wilson's, "You Lie" remarks to Obama. Those on the left can no longer hide behind crys of "racism". That accusation has lost it true meaning and those who insist on still using it are doing black people no favor and if anything are actually hurting their cause.

I fit the profile. I'm white, I'm conservative, I'm southern, and I hate what Obama is doing to the country. I plead guilt! Damn I want to go right straight to the front of the line. The line forming at the linen closet where all the white sheets are kept. I want to be in the front of the line at the hardware store where the rope is sold, maybe the owner is racist too and will give me free rope. I'm really getting anxious now, anxious for the lynching that's coming. I'm starting to tremble with eager anticipation at the site of this black man hanging from that huge oak down at the court house. I can hear the cheering mobs already---lynch that ni******r. Damn, it's going to be a great night!

This is what Obama's supporters have brought us to as he sits back and says he doesn't see racism while at the same time refusing to condemn those many voices in high places hollowing "RACISM". This "post racial" president is a liar and a fraud and perhaps, just perhaps the biggest racist of them all. Many Americans have had enough, more than enough. These racist charges are beginning to fall on deaf ears and the deafening crys of racism have punctured the ear drums of most by now. Like the boy who cried "Wolf", people are no longer listening. The word "racist" use to have some meaning, but a new meaning is emerging and the new meaning is "One who disagrees with Obama". So my fellow Americans welcome aboard, welcome to the newest and fastest growing majority in American, welcome my fellow racist. I welcome the title, hell I embrace it for I know its true meaning. I am the new "American Racist"!

Muslim Stamp

Our new President Barack HUSSEIN Obama, the son, supposely, of a muslim, the grandson of a muslim and perhaps himself a closet muslim himself recently directed the United States Postal Service to issue a stamp honoring Muslims. That is not surprising it is however a disgrace and a slap in the face to many patriotic Americans. The days of Obama are numbers, as are the days of each president. And the day will come when this "America Hater" will exit the doors at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. for the last time and a cheer will go up from millions of patriots. The following is an email I recieved yesterday.
Note: To be fair this stamp was issued originally on Aug. 1, 2001 before the attack on the World Trade Center on 9-11 and re-issued several years later. This is now a time to kill the stamp and not to re-issue again, but under Hussein Obama no chance!

USPS New 42-Cent Stamp!!! Celebrates Muslim holiday.

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of Pan Am Flight 103!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Marine Barracks in Lebanon !

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the military Barracks in Saudi Arabia !

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the American Embassies in Africa !

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the USS COLE!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM attack on 9/11/2001 !

REMEMBER all the AMERICAN lives that were lost in those vicious MUSLIM attacks!

Now President Obama has directed the United States Postal Service to REMEMBER and HONOR the EID MUSLIM holiday season with a new commemorative 42 Cent First Class Holiday Postage Stamp..

REMEMBER to adamantly & vocally """"BOYCOTT""" this stamp, when you are purchasing your stamps at the post office.


To use this stamp would be a slap in the face to all those AMERICANS who died at the hands of those whom this stamp honors.

They (MUSLIMS) don't even believe in Christ, & they're getting their own Christmas stamp! BUT, don't dare to dream of posting the ten commandments on federal property! This is truly UNBELIEVABLE !!!

A Government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have!

The Rise of Rampant Runaway Racism

Joe Wilson joined what is becoming a very, very long list of white racist who oppose the agenda of Barack Obama. At the present rate of growth this list is expected to include some 85% of all white people living in the United States by the end of 2010. Wilson like many on the list was added shortly after his outburst during a campaign speech by BHO while addressing a joint session of Congress where Wilson shouted out "you lie". Wilson, at first apologized to Barry, but when pushed by the speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi to give the apology on the floor of the House Wilson refused. This sealed his fate and he name was added to that long and growing list of awful white racist. Barry however, remained above the fray as always, claiming he didn't think the remark was racist; while at the same time refusing to condemn those who labeled Wilson as a racist. Barry loves to have it both ways. After all he is neither white or black or perhaps he is both!
by Ron Russell

Historical note: Taxes always increase during a Democratic administration and amazingly the number of homeless always drops during the first 24 hours after the inauguration of a Democratic president. We can now add racism as something that goes and comes with the changing of the guard at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, with this current administration being by far the best example of an emerging pattern.

Black Publishers Cry Racism Over Wilson Outburst, Join Boycott of South Carolina
A group of black publishers has canceled a planned January conference in South Carolina where Rep. Joe Wilson is a representative and joined an economic boycott of the state started by the state NAACP in protest of the confederate flag flying from the State House grounds.

A group of black newspaper publishers on Friday charged Republican Rep. Joe Wilson with racism for yelling, "You lie," at President Obama during his nationally televised address to a joint session of Congress.

The National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) has canceled a planned January conference in South Carolina, where Wilson is a representative, and joined an economic boycott of the Palmetto State started 10 years ago by the state NAACP in protest of the confederate flag waving from the Statehouse grounds.

Wilson shouted his accusation Wednesday night in response to Obama saying that his health care reform plan would not cover illegal immigrants. Wilson, who drew sharp criticism from both sides of the political fence for the breach in decorum, immediately apologized to Obama and the president accepted. But House Democrats are pressing Wilson to apologize on the House floor or face disciplinary action.

The latest fallout from Wilson's outburst, however, is the first time race has been injected into the controversy. read full story from FOX New

Hannah Giles: Fearless ACORN Slayer

Hannah Giles

Recently Hannah Giles and her companion, James O'Keefe made national news by exposing corruption at the Baltimore office of ACORN. This was widely reported on FOX News while the rest of the MSM media remain silent. The silence of the MSM just reaffirms what many already know, that those in the MSM will do everything in their power to protect the president of the United States who is closely allied with ACORN. The corruption within ACORN is matched by those "so-called" reporters at MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, The New York Times and many others---so be it, the truth still came out despite their silence.

These two young people, Hannah and James have done what no other politician or group of politicians has been able to do. Next year when the census takers come to your home, to count you and yours, you will NOT have to look into the ugly face of ACORN. ACORN will not be assisting with the census thanks to Hannah and James. Every American regardless of party affiliation should thank these brave young people, who by their actions have helped to expose this cancer, this despicable bunch of crooks, liars, cheats, and political cronies of the American left. They two have literally put their lives in danger and I contend they are marked people, and targets of ACORN goons.

And now if you can believe it,the state of Maryland may charge these two young people with crimes instead of going after the thugs and scum in ACORN. If the prosecutor in Maryland proceeds to charge these two a cry will go up that surely will be heard at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. See details of this Maryland story below:

Maryland may charge ACORN video-makers, State's Prosecutor heads anti-child abuse group
James O'Keefe, the intrepid filmmaker who teamed with National Journalism Center intern Hannah Giles in the ACORN video sting, now faces the prospect of being prosecuted by the Baltimore City State's Attorney for violating a Maryland that makes it illegal to tape an individual without their prior permission.

If he is convicted, O'Keefe could spend five years in the Maryland State Prison. Yes, you read that right. Here's the complete statement issued late yesterday by the prosecutor, Patricia Jessamy: read full story

The Day After & The Butterfly Effect

Today, the day after the anniversary of 9-11 gave me the title of today's post. I was reminded of a 1983 movie. "The Day After" showing the after effects of a massive nuclear exchange with the former Soviet Union. No this post is not about nuclear war, but simply a look at where we are today following the attack on 9-11.

I recall the day in 2001 when the first bombs began to rain down on Afghanistan and the satisfaction I took as the Taliban were quickly routed and American forces went into Kubal. The morning I got the news that Saddam Hussein was rooted from his spider hole was great. And the many other events along the way, but good and bad. This post however is not one of reflection, but rather a look at where we are today.

The picture is not good. The war in Afghanistan has taken a turn for the worse at this time. The Taliban has learned well from the insurgences in Iraq and the use of the IED's is beginning to take a toll there. The improvements the Iranians have made on these devices has proved devastating to allied forces. And there seems to be little desire on the part of those in Washington to do anything about it. Support for the war effort is waning and unless progress can be shown soon this weakling we now have for a president will buckle and begin withdrawing American forces---I have little doubt of that. That said, let me say that having thousands more American troops killed and injured by these improved IED's is not acceptable to me either, and the only solution I see is to go after the factories in Iran turning out these devices. It is becoming increasingly clear that Iran, must be dealt with now and dealt with decisively. The IED's, the nuclear issue, its role in international terrorism---all these things must be stopped in order to have peace in the area. Should we abandon our efforts in Afghanistan, all the gains there will be lost as well as the gains in Iraq----the two are linked. They are linked by their common neighbor Iran and its there that victory must be won or all is lost in that region of the world. Should Afghanistan fall back under the control of the Taliban, then the way will be paved for the reemergence of Osama and his followers in that region and in that area where all this began will again be a spring board for more attacks on the homeland.

The outlook on this "Day After" is bleak, we have an administration that will not deal with Iran forcefully and it is Iran that holds the key to final victory in Iraq and for the ultimate victory or some type of favorable outcome in Afghanistan. This president will not, and I repeat will not put the necessary pressure on Iran to secure success in either Iraq or in Afghanistan. A pivotal point is quickly approaching and this weakling in the White House may soon lose what little control he has left over the situation, there is an increasing possibility that Israel may take action against the Iranian state and that would change everything. The deck would be reshuffled and the outcome for the entire region would be any ones guess.

One lesson that history teaches is that the smallest occurrences often have a profound effect on events(a freak gust of wind, exposing an IED on a road to Kubal; or even a dung beetle pushing his tiny ball across a field). Events I dubbed the "butterfly effect" many, many year ago---but alas, a name which was stolen as my classroom lectures were not copyrighted. So predicting or simply speculating on such things is merely folly for fools like me.
by Ron Russell

PFC Robert C. Thomas, a 19 year old from Detroit was amazed as he carefully watched the two large shining beetles push the almost perfectly round ball inch after inch and foot after foot across the rocky ground going around the larger stones and over the smaller ones. This young man from the inner city had never witness such a unique act. He was perplexed and amazed at their efforts and completely oblivious to anything else for the moment. And it was at this exact moment that the enemy slipped past his sharp, but distracted eyes. A huge explosion rocked the mountain valley, un-noticed by the two dung beetles, but jarring the young soldier from his trance and in an instant 22 American soldiers lay dead. This brought the causality total for the year to over 1000, a milestone and led congress to cut funding for the war in Afghanistan---The BUTTERFLY EFFECT!

Gun Control

I don't know if it's really true or not but it sure is a good one.



Last Thursday Night Around Midnight, A Woman From Houston, Texas Was Arrested, Jailed, And Charged With Manslaughter For Shooting A Man 6 Times In The Back As He Was Running Away With Her Purse.

The Following Monday Morning, The Woman Was Called In Front Of The Arraignment Judge, Sworn In, And Asked To Explain Her Actions.

The Woman Replied, "I Was Standing At The Corner Bus Stop For About 15 Minutes, Waiting For The Bus To Take Me Home After Work. I Am A Waitress At A Local Cafe...

I Was There Alone, So I Had My Right Hand On My Pistol, That Was In My Purse, That Was Hung Over My Left Shoulder.

All Of A Sudden I Was Being Spun Around Hard To My Left. As I Caught My Balance, I Saw A Man Running Away From Me With My Purse.

I Looked Down At My Right Hand And I Saw That My Fingers Were Wrapped Tightly Around My Pistol. The Next Thing I Remember Is Saying Out Loud, "No Way Punk! Your Not Stealing My Pay Check And Tips."

I Raised My Right Hand, Pointed My Pistol At The Man Running Away From Me With My Purse, And Squeezed The Trigger Of My Pistol 6 Times!

When Asked By The Arraignment Judge, "Why Did You Shoot The Man 6 Times?

The Woman Replied Under Oath, "Because, When I Pulled The Trigger Of My Pistol The 7th Time, It Only Went Click."

The Woman Was Acquitted Of All Charges. And She Was Back At Work, At The Cafe, The Next Day!

Now that's Gun Control...

Then and Now

The stage is set, the curtain is going up and all eyes will be on the greatest speaker and our first post-racial president. All of our elected federal officials and members of the supreme court will look with awe as the commander-in-chief enters the great hall to the roar of the crowd and the cameras will role as he ascends to the throne and takes his place behind the safety of his TOTUS. Seated behind the great man will be the Speaker of the House, a great lady and defender of the down-trodden masses and next to her the President of the Senate, the Vice President, who often speaks the truth much to the dismay of the great leader. The applause, the cheers will subside and the great leader will speak and the words will flow over the crowd and through the airways and a feeling of awe will permeate those assembled and the masses huddled round their TV's at home.

But that was January 2009 and this is September 2009 and things have changed. This great man this great post-racial president has lost his glow and cloud has settled on his image and a new emerging one is being formed. Americans are beginning to see, not the great uniter, but the lying divider. he will attempt to sway the masses again as he did earlier, but this time, his words will fall on deaf ears and the applause will be muffled and subdued. The sleeping giant of middle America has been wakened and the lies of this once great leader have been exposed and his true agenda revealed.

President Obama we will no longer listen, we will no longer believe, we will no longer tolerate your lies, we will no longer respect you, we will instead insist you respect our will and hear our demands. And sir if you persist in your ways and attempt to impose an unAmerican system on us, we sir will crush you and those like you and purge you and your supporters from our America. You sir, are unAmerican, unpatriotic, and unwanted!!

Guns & Liberty

When guns are taken all other liberties will follow. The gun and the gun alone stands between you and total repression. Stand with your gun or kneel without it. You are always the soldier, the soldier in an endless struggle between liberty and tyranny and when you forget that or leave the field you forfeit the freedoms you enjoy. Ron Russell

1. "Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not."~Thomas Jefferson

2. "Those who trade liberty for security have neither." ~ John Adams

3. Free men do not ask permission to bear arms.

4. An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.

5. Only a government that is afraid of its citizens tries to control them.

6. Gun control is not about guns; it's about control.

7. You only have the rights you are willing to fight for.

8. Know guns, know peace, know safety. No guns, no peace, no safety.

9. You don't shoot to kill; you shoot to stay alive.

10. Assault is a behavior, not a device.

11. 64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.

12. The United States Constitution (c) 1791. All Rights Reserved.

13. The Second Amendment is in place in case the politicians ignore the others.

14. What part of 'shall not be infringed' do you NOT understand?

15. Guns have only two enemies; rust and politicians..

16. When you remove the people's right to bear arms, you create slaves.

17. The American Revolution would never have happened with gun control.

Add anything you wish to this list.

Glen Beck Draws First Blood in Czar War

The recent, forced resignation of "green jobs czar" Van Jones, although not solely due to the excellent reporting of Glenn Beck is great and Beck should be given the lions share of credit. It seems as Beck is on a crusade (is that word still permitted) to expose these far, far left loons who Obama and his people have brought into the highest levels of government with little or no over-sight by Congress. Obama is surrounding himself with the same types of people who he associated with during his community organizer days in Chicago. He dared not do that during his campaign, as the American electorate would not have tolerated it. Now however, he feels that since he is the supreme leader he can do as he chooses and the hell with what anyone else thinks. Obama's way or the highway seems to be the path he is following. With each passing day Obama is proving himself to be less and less a uniter and more and more a radical partisan , with little use for compromise. The battle lines are being drawn and those on the left and right are digging in for the great conflict and what could become an epic struggle for the future of our country.

Glenn Beck Draws First Blood in Czar War. While you were out this Labor Day weekend, you might have missed Sunday's resignation of Van Jones, President Obama's "green jobs czar." Plenty of commentators noticed and, two days later, they're still chattering about all the implications.

Most see it as an example of the White House caving in to pressure from conservatives or trying to eliminate distractions from the president's renewed push for health care reform. For some, it marks Glenn Beck's ascendance to a leading role in the media opposition to the Obama administration. The Fox News host portrayed Jones as a radical and a Communist in a broader campaign attacking Obama advisers known as "czars."
News that Jones had used a crude epithet to describe Republicans and signed a petition suggesting the Bush administration was in on the 9/11 attacks added to his troubles.

In this episode of Czar Wars, Arianna Huffington is casting Jones -- her friend and former employee -- as Obi-Wan Kenobi. She says striking him down just makes him more powerful -- freeing him to be a stronger force in advancing progressive causes. So Huffington thanks Beck for thrusting Jones into the spotlight, even if it was through a "vile and vicious smear campaign."
Beck has also thrust himself in the spotlight and nobody expects him to back away now. The Daily Beast and Politico are scoping out his next targets. They include regulatory adviser Cass Sunstein, FCC diversity chief Mark Lloyd and environmental adviser Carol Browner. One conservative blog added Ron Bloom's name to the list just hours after President Obama introduced him as "manufacturing czar" on Labor Day. read full story from AOL
