Today Washington Post reported that President elect Obama wants to appoint Senator Chuck Hagel (Republican – Nebraska) as “Secretary of Defense” in his new cabinet.
I would like to point out two personal opinions first:
First is that I strongly believe that any calling from the United States Government is an honor and a privilege to serve this wonderful country and WE THE PEOPLE.
And on a second note is that I strongly believe Senator Hagel is an excellent choice and perfectly qualified for that job. He is an Army Veteran who served honorably as Sergeant in Vietnam in the 47th Infantry Regiment, 9th Infantry Division and was awarded “Purple Heart”, “Army Commendation Medal”, “Vietnamese Gallantry Cross”, and “Combat Infantrymen Badge”.
And yet I think at this time he should NOT consider this calling.
When I posted the news on my social networks expressing my suspicion that this is more than a tactical move for political purpose by Obama, something he loves to do and something he became famous for the past 4 years, a Google Plus friend asked me following question:
“I suppose the question is: Do you do more good by calling him (Obama) out or by getting to where you have some say in how things go?”
That is a really good question here and here is my answer.
Let’s start with Mr. Obama himself
Obama is not really known to do what is right for the country or for the people nor does Obama care about anybody but Obama.
Fact is that Obama has three major construction sites ahead of him within the first 3 month of office.
The first one is the appointment of the replacement of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. After losing UN Ambassador Suzanne Rice as his first choice now he ogle’s with Presidential Candidate John Kerry (D – MA). But Congress Republicans already announced that they will look closer into that and take their time.
The second one is that Obama still has a huge budget negotiation ahead and after the way he bossed the GOP congress around on the fiscal cliff deal, using Obama-Chicago-Style tactics of a mix of blackmail and fault accusations to get his will he knows that he has to give the GOP something in order to get them at least tries to work.
And the third one is his very own narcissist personality. Ever since he took office in 2009 he claims to be a Bi-Partisan President of all Americans. OK we all know that his is pure nonsense and he is an extreme partisan and extreme radical President who cares only about two things: Barrack Obama and his radical supporters.
And this is where Senator Hagel now comes into play and why I think he should reject that calling.
As of first his calling as defense secretary is not because Obama all over Sutton discovered his true love for bi-partisanship. NO – the reality is a “Washington-Style-Give-and-Take-Game. The Congress waves John Kerry through and Obama gives them Chuck Hagel as Defense secretary.
Second of allonly a fool thinks Chuck Hagel will survive more than 6 month maximum a year in office. He will be there as long as Obama needs him to establish three major agendas he wants to have within the next 6 month as law
- The rise of the debt ceiling
- Tougher gun laws
- Emigration reform
For all three he needs the congress in order not to get stuck on everlasting discussions. He knows that the Congress right now is just about to walk out and would not even give him the time of the day.
And third of all Obama did not discover his love affair for GOP appointees. This is nothing but a Tactical move and PR stunt for Obama something he is already famous for. He is all policy and politics.
By appointing Senator Hagel he can, once again publically effective point out his “Bi-partisanship” and Once again in the liberal biased Mainstream Media point the finger on the GOP and how stubborn they might be.
When my friend on Google Plus asked me if it would not better to have somebody on the inside to change things – here is the answer NO. Because Mr. Obama will make sure that Senator Hagel is nothing more than a puppet as long as he needs him.
Even the Senator, with all his experience, should know that he will fool himself if he thinks he can change something or work properly – Obama will not allow it.
Like I said Obama is nothing about America or professionalism or WE THE PEOPLE for Obama it is all about Obama and tactics.
And as soon as Obama got what he wants from the Congress Senator Hagel will be replaced by a Democrat-Party-Loyal puppet.
And the honorable Senator will end his promising and long lasting career as a footnote. He lost his Senate seat where he could have made a difference and will be stropped as Defense Secretary.
If I could give the Senator some piece of Advice I would tell him: “Mr.: Senator Flips off Obama, show him the middle finger, tell him you are not that naïve and stay in the Senate and don’t allow this narcissist to use you, you deserve better.”
May God bless America and protect us from Obama
In the wake of the tragic Newtown, Connecticut Shooting leaving 20 innocent Children and 7 adults dead it is natural and understandable that grieving family members are on the search for answers and for somebody to put the blame respectively to put the blame on.
This is understand– and reproducible what is irreproducible even irresponsible is how the progressive left and especially President Obama and the left biased Media are exploiting this tragedy for their own political advantage in order to enforce their policy.
The search for those responsible
While the NRA showed their respect to the victims and family left behind not using this tragedy as platform to promote ideological policy the left radical gun-grabbers did exact the opposite. Like parasites they crawled out under their rocks and everybody seemed to have to say his 5 cents worth of comment on who is responsible.
Some say “The NRA (National Riffles Association)” has blood on their hands. Congressman Jim Himes (D-Conn.) even felt the need to attack Republican Governor Rick Perry calling him a “testosterone laden individual with blood on his hands” for supporting the Second Amendment.
The Connecticut Congressman seems to forget that he too swore an oath to the same constitution. Some say every Law-Abiding citizen in this country that owns a gun is responsible.
And let’s not forget Texans DO HAVE TESTOSTERON unlike those spineless exsanguinous liberal Democrats.
None of them handed a weapon over to Adam Lanza. Not Rick Perry, not I as Gun owner, not the NRA, not even the State of Connecticut.
Adma Lanza was the living proof that there is only a fine line between genius and insanity.
Truth is that the answer, though it is a complex accumulation of personal issues, divorce, health issues as well as mental issues and an irresponsible mother, is a lot simpler then the media would like.
Bottom line is that the only person that is responsible is Adam Lanza’s mother who knew he was mentally unstable and still feed the boy with violent War Games pushing his aggressively and not only encouraged him but gave him access to shoot firearms.
Fact is SHE was the only person responsible for this tragedy but since we can hold her accountable for anymore lets punish 20 Million Law abiding Gun-Owners of America.
During a press conference on December 21st 2012 the NRA Spokesman talked about, among others, the responsibility of Video games that lead to Adama Lanza becoming a violent individual.
And though the media immediately made their case calling this crazy and hammering the speaker for this remarks fact is that he was right.
If you ever tried those games once, I did once only to see what is really behind those games, they are so brutally realistic and during the game you can actually feel how your pulse rises and your become more and more aggressive.
Put this in combination with shooting firearms, mental problems, feeling like an outcast and a mother that encourages you maybe even pushing the blames for her failed marriage on the kid and the father and you have a time bomb right in hand.
But why does the Democratic caucus and Media not want to recognize the Violence of Video games and Movies as part of the responsibility – SELFISHNESS – FOR THE MONEY.
Politics, the Media and Money
President Obama claims that he worries about our children and his coming efforts to tighten Gun Laws serve only this purpose. But why is he not going tough on Violent Video games as well. Most Psychologists agree that those games have a brutal and damaging impact on our children.
Most national and International Media say President Obama is now a lot more free in pushing Gun Laws because he is in his second term and cannot be re-elected.
But that is NOT true at all.
“After the election is before the election” and old saying states and though President Obama cannot be re-elected there is still the next mid-term election and the next presidential election where he needs to keep the way free for the coming candidate and the interest groups and financial supporters in line.
And the same counts for the Left biased media.
Have you noticed that TV-Commercials of Violent video games have not been taken off the air or out of the print media right after the Newtown shooting? Of course not, and ever wonder why?
Most of the Video games are developed in Silicon Valley California just like most movies come from Hollywood same State.
And those are not only the biggest Democrat contributors – no those are also the largest customers of advertisements in the Print and TV Media paying billions of Dollars every year to the Media.
A fool that thinks the Media will slaughter the hand that feeds him by attacking the same in search for responsibilities on Mass-Shootings.
And check the reports almost every Mass-Shooter in the past history has been a fan of violent Video games playing those games over several hours a day.
Politics – Bottom line is this: The entire Obama propaganda on “saving our children from those mean and evil guns in the world” is nothing but political trench warfare and diversion in order to destroy one of the traditionally largest contributor to the conservative party the GOP and weaken the same for a) the next election and b) for the fiscal cliff negotiation.
It is not rocket science to see that. If the GOP is busy standing their ground on Second Amendment rights the chances are they losen the fight on the fiscal cliff negotiations.
In the end what Obama and Biden want is a simple Washington Deal: We don’t go too hard on your gun rights (just a few minor adjustments we sell as bi-partisan effort) and you give us the Obama budget deal. – Or in my words preparation for blackmail.
An indecent sickening, and disgraceful Game – Washington Style game.
Media – And the media’s hype and war against America’s gun owners and the NRA is just the same – a diversion to avoid the American public might take a closer look and final attack on their largest customers the Video game producers and Hollywood elite.
Better attacking and making 20 Million Law Abiding Citizens with guns collectively responsible for the actions of one Person or in the case of Newton 2 people (the mother and her son) then taking a closer look at the own irresponsible behavior.
We must reject the idea that every time a law is broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker.
It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his action. (Ronald Reagan)
Left radical Activists – Of course they don’t want to hear about Video games as well, their own kids are the ones playing them and their, busy “career parents (we are too emancipated to be home staying moms and take care of our kids)” buy those games for their kids to keep them out of the way not having to actually care for them.
May God bless America

Today I watched the first Formula 1 car race in this year’s season. Many ask me why I like this so much. Well, the answer is pretty simple, It is a race, one-driver-against-another, but at the same time it is a team sport.
Every Team, let’s say Red Bull Racing who holds the current world championship, has two drivers in the field who compete against each other and both drivers also fight for the so called Team-Championship.
In every race the drivers collect points and also the team collects points for technical improvements based on placing’s of the drivers. So it is just normal that at a certain point, when it is obvious a certain driver can’t win the world championship anymore (based on the collected points) he takes one for the team, protects the leading racer, and keeps the competitors back no matter if he likes his team partner or not – for the team championship.
What does this have to do with politics you ask? Everything – A Presidential race is not much different. We are at a point in the race where some contenders can’t win and it is time to take one for the team.
We have 4 Racers in the challenge Santorum, Romney, Gingrich, and Paul and 1 Team the GOP, the problem right now is nobody wants to take one for the team.
And while GOP contenders are busy smearing one another, throwing dirt on one another, and fighting senseless trench warfare on one another Obama has an easy game.
For the sitting president this election is like a 90yard rush into the end zone, touchdown included, with no defensive line there to try and block him.
All he has needed to do is sit back and quietly plan his strategy, and thanks to the ridiculous amount of GOP Debates he knows perfectly well what their strategy is.
And not only that:
Obama also places laws prohibiting every citizen from protesting against him without GOP candidates even reacting.
Obama Mocks the GOP contenders on gasoline prices – with no backtalk whatsoever (Watch the YouTube Video here)
Sends his VP Joe Biden into election mode spreading the word that the GOP has no clue about the middle class (of course in front of a crowd where the dinner cost $ 10,000 a plate).
And the list just continues.
Voters and activists
In the 2010 Midterm election we all stood together, tall and united, knowing what was at stake.
But just like the candidates, the Voters are back where they were in 2008; everybody against everybody and no shoulder-to-shoulder standing whatsoever.
When I look at my network and read the comments I actually want to cry.
I can’t vote for Santorum because………..
I can’t vote for Romney because……..
I can’t Vote for Gingrich or Paul because……………..
He is a RINO, he is big Government, no he is not a RINO, no he is not Big Government, bla, bla, bla – it makes me sick.
My favorite line is: I can’t vote for either and before I vote for the second best I would rather not vote at all. Now this one really makes me sick.
EVERY VOTE NOT PLACED IS A VOTE FOR OBAMA
IF YOU DON’T VOTE YOU DON’T HAVE ANY RIGHT TO COMPLAIN
Here is a little lesson in political reality. My favorite candidate would be Lt. Col. Ret. Congressman Allen West of Florida, but he won’t run.
And since politics is not a “musical request program”, and unless anyone of the voters out there has the magic “Jeannie in the Bottle” that can bring the perfect candidate with a blink of her eye we all have to face reality, and pick one that is there.
And that brings me to the candidates
Who is left in the pool of candidates some like, some don’t. Nevertheless it is the best we’ve got right now and the true agenda in “The most important election in America’s history” is to kick Obama out, PERIOD.
Here is my question to the contenders (or some of them): Why do you run in the first place?
a) You run because you are truly interested in saving America
Then it is time to face political reality. Re-evaluate your chances by reality and not mathematical possibility and do the right thing.
Maybe you want to take from the example of Governor Rick Perry (R-TX), who was humble enough to know he is not going to win and took “one for the team”.
b) You run because you are probably at an age where you think this is your last chance to gain the highest Office in the Country if not in the world
Then you better get out of the way. Your knuckle-biting does not serve anybody but Obama. This is not the time for personal conceitedness. We already have a self-absorbed narcissist in the office.
Where do we stand?
Whether you like it or not the fact is, based on delegate count, this has become a two-man-race between Mitt Romney (496) and Rick Santorum (236), with Newt Gingrich (141) and Ron Paul (66) pulling up the rear.
I was pretty much one of the first that brought up Newt Gingrich for President in 2011.
But I also was excited about Rick Perry, Michelle Bachmann, and not to mention that I was still praying for Lt. Col. Ret. Congressman West to reconsider and run. Reality speaks a different language and I have had have to face it too.
No matter where you stand on any candidate, the chances for Gingrich or Paul to still win the primaries are less than slim.
Ron Paul had his fun, and everybody agrees that some of his plans are absolutely the best choice for America. Bring our troops home, stop spending money on Wars we have no business being in, and keep our Money at home. But also some of his ideas are, well let’s say a good comedy. End the war on drugs by legalizing them? Give me a break.
He can’t win, that is also a fact. For a smart man like Congressman Paul it is time to endorse one of the front-runners and start supporting him.
Newt Gingrich had 2 resurrections already, but based on the recent numbers the chance of a third is dismal. He lost as a southerner in the Deep South against “Yankee” Santorum. That should be a message.
Another fact is that every political analyst from USA today to the Tea Party economist agrees that neither Newt Gingrich nor Rick Santorum can win if they both continue to stay in the race, BUT – together they can beat Obama.
Rick Santorum already mentioned that he would consider Newt Gingrich as Vice President. So – where is the problem Mr. Gingrich?
Be a sport, be humble like Perry and take one for the team, take one FOR AMERICA
This is a win-win situation for all of us. Gingrich gets his place in the white House, he can take on sleeping disorder VP Joe Biden, and battle him in debates, coach Rick Santorum to beat Obama in debates, while sharing with Santorum his profound knowledge and experience, and together fight for a renewed America.
That way we can make this what it already is – a two-man race between Santorum and Romney, and then the voters decide once and for all.
Meanwhile Newt Gingrich can start taking on Obama and his policies at every turn in order to prevent Obama from spreading his election message un-challenged.
And finally, (I’m almost begging here) close the frontline against our combined enemy Obama.
Candidates, Voters, Activist
This is a message to both, the candidates and the voters.
Stop smearing, whining, and nagging and acting like a spoiled 5 year old brat – or BOTH OF YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANOTHER 4 YEARS OF OBAMA FASCISM WITH ONLY YOURSELF TO BLAME
We can’t always have what we want, but we have one combined goal and that is SAVING AMERICA FROM OBAMA or see AMERICA GO ALL THE WAY DOWN
And I said it before and say it again to the Voters – you might not like the current choice, but the only other choice is 4 more years of Obama. So
FACE THE DAM REALITY AND VOTE
FOR THE MOST AMAZING SHINING CITY ON THE HILL
AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL

March 5, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – While Pepsi has been in the spotlight lately for contracting with a company that uses cells originally derived from an aborted fetus in flavor research, it’s not the only company that pro-lifers should think about boycotting for such unethical practices, reports the National Catholic Register.
Rebecca Taylor, a Technologist in Molecular Biology, has compiled a list of companies that use cells and tissues derived from aborted babies to develop their products, which range from childhood vaccines to cosmetics. Her list includes one English company, ReNeuron, which has applied for clinical trials in the United States.
Here are the companies, with their contact information. To find out more about how these companies use cells derived from aborted fetuses, read the piece at the National Catholic Register.

With the new Family movie „War Horse“ Steven Spielberg, horse lover and genius movie director Steven Spielberg, who never rode a horse himself but owns 4 stallions, fulfilled himself a passion.
He tells the story of the friendship between a young man and a horse. The horse drafted in World War 1 into the British Army becoming an icon and hero.
Steven Spielberg’s story of course is fiction.
But here is the story of a real life horse that became a true War hero during the Korean War. She gives the motto “Semper Fi” a whole new meaning
RECKLESS – THE REAL WAR HORSE
(Staff Sargent U.S. Marine Corps)
I’m sure that you, like me, have never heard of this horse before, but the narrator is right – her story should be told.
Reckless was a pack horse during the Korean war, and she carried recoilless rifles, ammunition and supplies to Marines. Nothing too unusual about that, lots of animals got pressed into doing pack chores in many wars.
But this horse did something more during the battle for a location called Outpost Vegas: This mare made 51 trips up and down the hill on one day alone. On the way up, she carried ammunition, and on the way down she carried wounded soldiers. What was so amazing? Well, she made virtually every one of those trips without anyone leading her.
Imagine a horse carrying a wounded soldier, being smacked on the rump at the top of the hill, and heading back to the safety of the rear. But to imagine the same horse, loaded with ammunition, and trudging back to the battle where artillery is going off, without anyone leading her is unbelievable. How many horses would even make it back to the barn once, let alone return to you in the field one single time?
How bad was the battle for Outpost Vegas? Artillery rounds fell at the rate of 500 per minute, and only two men from one company made it out alive. Just two.
As for Reckless, well, she was wounded twice in the battle, but she didn’t get a trip Stateside like other GI’s. She continued to assist Marines: carry ammunition, stringing communication line, whatever was asked of her.
She was retired at the Marine Corps Base in Camp Pendleton where General Randolph McC Pate – the Commandant of the entire Marine Corps – issued the following order… She was never to carry any more weight on her back, except her own blankets.
Her Military Decorations included two Purple Hearts, Good Conduct Medal, Presidential Unit Citation with Star, National Defense Service Medal, Korean Service Medal, United Nations Service Medal, and Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citation, all of which she wore proudly on her red and gold blanket.
She died in 1968 at the age of 20.
In the 1990s, she was featured in the LIFE magazine collector’s edition ‘Celebrating Our Heroes’ as one of America ‘s 100 greatest heroes of all time, alongside George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Mother Teresa.
I want to say thank you to my dear friend for several years Emily Phillips McWhorter, a wonderful young woman from Texas, married wife, horse lover, proud American, true patriot and supporter of our troops. Not only did she bring this story to my attention but also sent me the words above and so contributed primarily to this amazing story. Thanks Em.

Views on Conservatism
By Lara Maertens Rhea
What does it mean to be Ms. Texas Conservative US 2012? I get asked this a lot. Why do women want to be in beauty pageants anymore? Don’t they insult or demean us? Since I am a writer, most notably a political speech writer, I decided to write an article about this issue. Primarily, I wanted to use this opportunity to talk about the stereotypes of women in pageants, in politics, and discuss a little bit about what Conservatism means to me. I hope it provides some insight into the minds of women like myself.
First of all, everyone understands what a beauty pageant is, but not many people understand that contestants use the notoriety of their position to gain awareness to a specific platform or cause for which they hold certain interests. In this case, the issue is Conservatism. Some people think it’s hollow to use women in swimsuits to bring attention to a political movement; however, the reverse is really true in this case. We are bringing attention to the fact that women in swimsuits, attractive women in general, are smart enough and strong enough to understand and care about political issues. We are proud American women who love God, our country, and our families, and we are unafraid to speak out about our beliefs. We feel we have something important to say about where we feel the country is headed and we are willing to be leaders and examples to others, often educating others on what it means to be a Conservative and what they can do to help steer our country in a better direction. We are tired of the stereotypes attached to women like Sarah Palin, who was a beauty queen and therefore treated by the media as a bimbo. There are many others, who are labeled as “too pretty to be taken seriously.” Michele Bachmann has been given the same treatment. Like their politics or not, the fact that people, especially other women, engage in tearing down these strong, independent women is a slap in the face to all of us. We should be proud that these women are great mothers, strong leaders, and represent what we should all aspire to be. Their looks should never be discussed as they go about trying to secure certain jobs in politics, anymore than the size of your rear should enter in to whether or not you are qualified to do your job, but because there is an underlying assumption by most that attractiveness or beauty equates to stupidity, sadly it probably always will. I heard someone talking about Michele Obama’s rear-end the other day, and it infuriated me. Again, like her or not, the obsession about her looks is unfair and wrong. Any of these women can take hits on their politics or job performance, but how do you fight against “her butt is so big” or “her hair is too long?” The comments and the people making them are shallow, not the women trying to defend them…………………………..

The Florida Primary is over; Mitt Romney won over Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum with Ron Paul coming in last.
When listening to the conservative Tea Party Network and knowing that over 150 Tea Party organizations supported Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, and that they both had support from the most conservative leaders in America it really makes me wonder how could a Mitt Romney victory happen?
But the main question is was this really a victory of the voters or was this a GOP establishment manipulated primary?
The best election money can buy as PJ Tatler on Pajamas media calls it.
Ever since the Midterm elections of 2010, a broad front of conservative voters united under a group called “The Tea Party”. They wanted to take the Grand Ol’ party back from the establishment, renew the conservative cause we once so proudly defended, and kick the RINO’s out of power. Successfully, we showed the GOP what true conservative voters are capable of when we helped them take back the House of Representatives – Something the odds were against.
However, since the GOP likes to go along to get along they want to silence the Tea Party in order to maintain their established power.
Grand Ol’ Party – Once the flag ship for Christian conservative values, honesty, integrity, limited government, and power through WE THE PEOPLE. It represented the “American Dream” of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness – NOT ANYMORE.
The GOP today is diversity preaching and engaged in all sorts of foul play just like the Liberals to hold on to their power. It’s a tug of war in the same mud. They no longer care about the voice of the people, the voters; they just care about keeping the status quo and keeping the “establishment” in tact. It’s no wonder why WE THE PEOPLE have lost all confidence and trust in our so-called representation.
And yet the answer to right the ship is so simple. Stop being politicians and start being Statesman again. Stand up for less government and fiscal responsibility no matter what the cost, and keep your word.
However, instead of seizing the momentum of The Tea Party to strengthen the Republican Party so that Obama can be defeated the GOP does the opposite – THEY DECLARE WAR on their base the true conservative American voters.
THEY DECLARE WAR ON US – THEIR VOTERS and SUPPORTERS – UNBELIEVABLE
Instead of uniting the Conservatives and independents under one flag by working with them they divide the Conservative base even more, playing right in the hands of the Democrats – and for what?
Rush Limbaugh proved in ‘Real Clear Politics’ that the GOP’s joined forces with The New York Times declaring War on its own voters.
Limbaugh on Real Clear Politics: Bill Kristol on the Tea Party: “It’s an infantile form of conservatism.” Scott Reed, veteran strategist and lobbyist: “I think it’s waning now,” talking to the reporter of the story about the Tea Party’s influence. “Party leaders have managed to bleed some of the anti-establishment intensity out of the movement, Reed said, by slyly embracing Tea Party sympathizers in Congress, rather than treating them as ‘those people.’ Did he mean to say that the party was slowly co-opting the Tea Partiers? ‘Trying to,’ Reed said. ‘And that’s the secret to politics: trying to control a segment of people without those people recognizing that you’re trying to control them.’” This is a Republican consultant talking about how to neutralize the Tea Party. (Continue reading and watch the Video here)
Bottom Line is….
The GOP does not want a true conservative President in 2012. A true conservative President running on the principles of “Reagan Conservatism” for limited Government, Constitutional America, fewer regulations, less Taxes, and more power back to “We the people” would cramp their style.
The GOP wants a GOP puppet like John Boehner, who became Speaker of the House with help from the Tea Party (that we were good enough for), but as soon as he held the hammer in his hand he became a good GOP soldier representing power preservation, backdoor deals, and the betrayal of principles rather than standing up for true conservatism.
GOP Establishment/Elite (RINO’s) vs. Tea Party
The GOP establishment complains that grassroots Conservatives call them RINO’s (Republicans In Name Only) – Well, what else do you call people who “claim” to hold to conservative principles while running for office, but as soon as they’re elected they play “flip flop-balancing act politics” betraying and selling out everything the people believe in.
They add insult to injury by calling their own voter base “Grass Root Radicals”. And the GOP wonders why they lose elections.
Just take 2008 presidential candidate John McCain – He is the perfect example of a fence riding RINO that I can possibly think of.
McCain even dared to attack the Republican Tea Party Base as “Hobbits”.
Well, here is a message to Mr. McCain: The hobbits were the hero’s in the movie “Lord of the Rings” and typified the little underestimated underdog that conquers the big overpowering evil with determination and bravery, never abandoning the path of honor and faith.
Next time you want to insult “Us” Senator McCain – First get your facts straight or at least watch the movie. I am proud to be a hobbit.
And that is why the GOP prefers a Mitt Romney over a Newt Gingrich or a Rick Santorum. Romney is the perfect presidential version of John Boehner. A true party soldier who will make sure that he will not forget those who helped him into office, and I’m not talking about the voters I’m talking about the GOP.
Newt Gingrich IS a walking hand grenade for the GOP Establishment (and I say that with the highest respect) because he does not cater to them or their distortion of facts. He wants to change the establishment not preserve it, heeding the will of the people, and proving he is not a party soldier, but a leader – And that is NOT what the GOP establishment wants.
Rick Santorum is considered to be the “most conservative,” but has nowhere near the experience nor the record of achievements that Gingrich has to really threaten the GOP. And in my opinion, the GOP is giving Santorum just enough money to keep him in the race in order to derail Gingrich and assure Romney the victory.
Romney vs. Gingrich
After his victory in Florida Romney declared he wants to unite the GOP. How does he want to unite what he, together with the Party have previously divided through trench warfare?
Does he really think he can first artillery everything we believe in and then just miraculously say, oh now it’s over, and we are all one big happy family?
2012 Presidential election
If the GOP continues to fight against their base instead of listening to them this will be the last election for the GOP as a grand old party.
The call for a third party, widely ignored the past 3 years, becomes louder and louder. We are fed up that the elite think they can rule over our head. We are fed up with being treated like stubborn dumb children.
Let me make this clear Mr. Preibus, Chairman of the GOP:
YOU AND THE ELITE DO NOT OWN THE PARTY – WE THE REPUBLICAN VOTERS DO
And the winner is……
….Barrack Hussein Obama and the Democratic Party. The GOP financed trench warfare only plays into the hands of the radical fascist Obama regime. All they need to do is sit back and watch how we maul each other.
In 2010 we gave the GOP a chance to prove that they could do more than give lip service… They failed.
All they needed to do was keep their promises and work WITH us and not AGAINST us… They failed.
Let’s hope and pray that at least the Tea Party voters can look beyond the polls, take one for the team, and vote for whom we really think can kick Obama out of office.
And maybe after 2012 start a third party – a true conservative TEA PARTY OF WE THE CONSTITUIONALIST PEOPLE
For God and Country, and the most amazing City on the Hill

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last
With the world on the brink of a new war with Iran and with a half a dozen other Muslim countries posturing against Israel, and shouting death to the West, Obama has announced his new military strategy: NDAA Act H.R. 1540 – Military cuts.
Since the Arab Spring started many conservative Bloggers and columnists warned about the danger of the radical “Muslim Brotherhood” emerging to power all over the Muslim dominated world from Northern Africa to the Middle East.
These warnings have been widely ignored. On the contrary, left wing biased mainstream Media, always good for diversity preaching and ignoring facts, not only ignored, but on top of that covered up obvious signs of radicalism within this grouping (Middle Eastern Forum – Muslim Brotherhood Declares ‘Mastership of World’ as Ultimate Goal).
The Governmental officials even went a step further in cooperation with Muslim interest groups such as CAIR, Muslim Brotherhood USA, ACLU, and similar affiliated radical groups, by trying to stop conservative bloggers and columnists from showing the truth and the reality of this situation.
The last idea was a summit held by the U.S. State department with radical Muslim organizations to dismantle the 1st Amendment rights and produce a law that would outlaw any anti-Islam and Islam affiliated publishing as inflammatory speech.
And if that isn’t bad enough Obama and his “Muslim bowing” goonies did, and still do, continue to endorse the Muslim Brotherhood calling upon the world to give this “Secular” organization a chance – Secular – sure, like the Pope is not Catholic.
Sometimes I’m not sure if it’s pure ignorance, stupidity, incompetency, or worse, by design, but the facts are there and this is a nightmare for Israel, caused by the Obama administration in cooperation with the UN and European Union.
But history has shown that no fascist government can avoid the truth long term. And this time the truth and the facts have already hit us square in the face.
As Newsmax reports:
3. Muslim Brotherhood Deputy: We’ll Cancel Israel Treaty
The deputy leader of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has called Israel a “criminal enemy” and threatened to cancel the Israel-Egypt peace treaty.
In an interview with the Arabic daily al-Hayat, Dr. Rashad Bayoumi was asked if the government of Egypt is required to recognize Israel. He responded: “This is not an option. Whatever the circumstances, we do not recognize Israel at all. It’s an occupying criminal enemy.”
He said no Muslim Brotherhood member will ever negotiate with Israelis: “I will not allow myself to sit down with criminals.”
He also said the Brotherhood would take legal action toward canceling the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel that was signed in 1979.
“The Brotherhood respects international conventions, but we will take legal action against the peace treaty with the Zionist entity,” he said in the interview.
The Muslim Brotherhood won 36.3 percent of the vote in the second round of Egyptian elections, while the ultra-conservative Salafi al-Nour Party received 28.8 percent, according to the Jerusalem Post.
Egyptians are voting for a parliament that will help draft a new constitution following the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year regime.
Bayoumi, a Cairo University professor, has served as the Brotherhood’s Deputy General Guide.
Iran, Egypt, Syria, and Tunisia – all of those countries don’t seem to have anything to do with each other and the mainstream media, in compliance with the Obama administration, want to tell us that these are isolated incidents and occurrences, but they are not.
This is just more of a joint effort by radical Muslims to destroy Israel and Western Civilization in order to have a one world under Allah.
How are they connected?
Is an isolated Country under a radical leader and controlled by the Mullah’s who hold most of the oil in that region. President Ahmendinejad has on several occasions made it clear that the true “goal of a Muslim is the martyrdom” and he is determined to “wipe Israel off the face of the earth”.
And while the whole world is whining about whether Iran does, or does not have the nuclear capability for a nuclear weapon the truth is this entire issue is nothing but a diversion from the bigger picture. Iran already has enough conventional rocket missiles to attack Israel and Europe at the same time.
And the Europeans, who now behave like cowards, in cooperation with the UN will do anything to please Iran even if that means destroying Israel.
This was mostly controlled by the Muslim brotherhood doing the smartest thing they could do… Stand down, not to appear too public, and wait until the whole civil war was over in order to take the victory.
Their passiveness blindfolded the western countries under the leadership of the worlds #1 do-gooder, the UN, who immediately jumped in to rescue the poor and oppressed protesters demanding only one thing, democracy.
Democracy – my butt, the Muslim Brotherhood has picked up the pieces and is now in the process of controlling all those countries with Sharia Law. Which brings me right to…………….
Job well done Mr. Obama. We all are d’accord that Mubarak was a dictator and needed to go, but instead of replacing this Dictator with a Western and America-friendly Israeli accepting new Government, you, the UN, and the EU allowed for the uncontrolled riots to rage hailing them as democracy building.
And the result is: The Muslim Brotherhood is now the most powerful force. American and Israeli flag burning protests are occurring (isn’t that nice – first we “Free” those jerks and then they show their gratitude by burning our flags and protesting against us) and now MB announces that they are going to nullify the Peace treaty with Israel.
Democracy the wrong way – asking the declared enemy, radical Muslims and Nazi hatemonger’s, if they want peace.
Again Mubarak was a dictator and needed to go, but he also was the guarantor of the peace treaty with Israel.
“President” Assad is, just like Mubarak, a tyrant and a dictator, and sooner or later needs to go, BUT he is also the guarantor of the Weapons-hold-Status with Israel. And you cannot count on the UN peacekeeping force (UNDOF – United Nations Disengagement Observer Force) because as the name already says this is an observer force with “pack and retreat” orders as soon as shots are fired.
But again WARNING – the so called Democracy protesters in Syria are just like in Egypt under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood who again, just like in Egypt, does not appear publically because they’re waiting for the western do-gooder to clean up the mess for them so they can pick up the victory.
As soon as Assad falls the MB will take over and Iran will be right on Israel’s doorstep with nobody stopping them.
PLO (there is no Palestine)
With over 7 Million Palestinians surrounding Israel in Lebanon, Syria, Gaza, West-Jordan Land, and Jordan itself the weak PLO interim government is just about to bring Hamas back into it.
Now, it is not rocket science to know that Hamas is not only supported, but also financed by Iran and has, just like Iran, sworn an oath never to accept Israel, but destroy Israel.
United States under Obama
And what is America’s answer to these threats? Well, Obama is doing what Obama always does, he bows to the Muslims and his Czars from Eric Holder all the way down the list to try and destroy freedom of speech. Wanting to make any criticism of Muslims a “hate-crime” law with NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act for 2012).
This act would cut military spending and allow arrests to take place without proper procedure turning America into an Obama-fascist state.
On the brink of a Muslim uprising and world war he is cutting our Armed Forces.
Is this strategic idiocy or purely on purpose to force Israel, by blackmail, back into the Borders of 1967? This is after all what Obama wanted all along plus it gives the Palestinians what they want – A hatemonger country ready and willing to deal Israel the final deathblow.
There is not much to conclude here, since even a blind person (except of course left wing liberal democrats fascists and diversity-dreamers) can see the boiling point.
Make up your own mind about this, but the evidence is there. My prayers are with Israel and my support as well.
