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

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
THE UNITED STATES OF A FREE REPUBLIC AMERICA

Racism is wrong and I oppose any form of it, but that goes both ways.
I know many Black Americans who have already turned on Obama and his administration. But those are Americans who work hard for a living and disagree just like me with what is going on. The interesting part is that those Black Americans opposing are slandered by their own people. Today they are heroes for the black community, but as soon as they criticize the community organizers and self proclaimed civil rights activists they are given “names” and vilified.
Democrats and the current Obama administration are measuring with two sets of standards, one for them (everything is allowed) and one for the rest of America.
This is what Democrats really think about the Blacks – how they really feel about them.
John F. Kennedy refused to support the “Discrimination Act” in the early 60’s proposed by the Republicans until he ran for Presidency and needed their support. Right away he was all fired up about Civil Rights.
Bill Clinton won his Presidential election primarily with the help from minorities and because he had the blacks on his side. Even worse, after his final term he opened up an office in New York’s Harlem district (the Black Community) on Tax Dollars, where still nobody really knows what he’s doing there; but in his words he’s there to increase the value of the Black Community.
Ted “I am a walking handbook for law review and criminal justice” Kennedy acted as the advocate for minorities his entire career. The exploitation of minorities is a much better description – His agenda was always a self-serving one – Keeping the focus off of his own family’s lethal behavior. The truth is the Kennedy’s are a family of Elite thinkers. If you are not an Ivy Leaguer, Millionaire or belong to an affluent family you would not come anywhere near those individuals. Not that any person of sense would want to.
Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and all of the other self-proclaimed and self-righteous humanitarians claim that all they care about is the poor and the minorities.
Now, what have all those self-righteous Democrats have in common?
They are hypocrites to an extent. Because this is what they really think about the Blacks – (from Ann Coulters Colum):
The recently released book Game Change reports that Sen. Harry Reid said America would vote for Barack Obama because he was a “light-skinned” African-American “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”
The book also says Bill Clinton called Sen. Ted Kennedy to ask for his endorsement of Hillary over Obama, saying of Obama: “A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.” (http://is.gd/6eTGU)
But where is the outrage? Where are the protests? Where are Reverend Wright, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson? Why aren’t the Democrats screaming out in outrage?
Where are the riots on the street, destroying half a city and private property, just to use afterwards “Racism” as a defense weapon to avoid prosecution and retaliation for all the damage? (See the Rodney King case)
Where is “No Drama Obama” calling this “Stupid” just as he did with the Cambridge police officer for doing nothing but his job according to the rules and regulations?
Nowhere – and I tell you why:
YOU DO NOT BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU
Just imagine if a Conservative would have made the same remarks – the streets would be a battlefield, Al Sharpton would be on TV and nowhere else, we would never hear the end of it, the Democrats would demand that the conservative step down, and BarryO would be furious.
It is a win- win situation for the both of them, Democrats and Black Civil Rights Activists.
- The Democrats know that the only Hispanics supporting them are the immigration activists because as soon as the immigrant is naturalized, the majority of them vote Conservative (because they have to work hard to prosper). The Atheists and other minorities don’t make up enough of the numbers to win any election so without the blacks the democrats would not win a flowerpot.
So the Democrats act as Humanitarians, make major financial promises to the black Ghetto Communities (educated and working Black Americans move away from there as fast as they can), promising all the freebees and hope to gain their vote.
- And the black Civil Rights Activists know very well that sooner or later the conservative Leaders will have to appeal to the demands of their voters and stop financial giveaways, special treatment, affirmative action’s, quote regulations, discrimination of whites, and their right to free speech and other racism, hatred, and anger producing nonsense.
Bottom Line is – the relationship between the Democrats and the Black Civil Rights Activists is that of a “partnership of convenience”.
Obama himself is silent because he needs Harry Reid. Without Reid and Pelosi there is no Healthcare Bill.
And the blacks Civil Rights activists, Obama’s Shamrock of Racism”, need Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi to push the healthcare bill through in order to get a Rolls Royce of Medical Treatment without paying extra insurance. Let’s be honest those are the largest recipients.
