European Union – A gun free dream land for Terrorists and criminals
The European Union members have some of the strictest Gun Laws in the world. All over the EU, for Law abiding citizens is it almost impossible to own a gun and even worst to carry one.
Most countries in the EU, like Germany and Austria for example, differentiate between “the right to own a gun” “Gun owners permit” and “the right to carry a gun”, “Hunting and Sports Guns”, and “license free (Category “C”) guns”.
Gun Owners Permit
Citizens have to obtain a so called “Weapon Pass”. After severe background checks, citizens have to make weapons uses and handling classes, take a test and IF the qualify they are allowed to purchase a gun.
BUT – they are now only allowed to “own” a gun. The gun must be stored safely (Police control at any given time without probable cause) and the storage rules at home are basically: The gun and ammo has to be both locked up and stored on separate places.
For example: Just in case you are the victim of a burglar, or rapist, you have to go first in one closet to get the gun out of a locked safe or case, and then go to another closest to get the ammo out of a locked case or safe, and if you are not raped or dead by now you are allowed to use it BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE – if you kill the criminal you might go to jail for “using excessive Force”.
Got to love uber-liberal leftist countries [if you are a Terrorist, criminal, murderer, or rapist]
Gun carry Permit
Is almost impossible to obtain, and extremely limited. Not even most Police officers, or Security guards, have a private gun carry permit. After duty they have to keep their guns in storage at work.
Sports and Hunting weapons and Rifles
Citizens need to have a hunting license and are only allowed to carry their weapon to and from Hunting or Sport shooting, and during the transport, again, weapon and ammo has to be separated. For sports guns in so called gun clubs, citizens either store their weapons at the gun club, or follow the same rules as mentioned in both categories above.
License free (Category “C”) Guns
Are Bibi-Guns, gas-airsoft pistols or any other form of bobby (Alarm) pistols. They are license free, purchasable after the age of 18, with registration by showing a valid driver’s license or passport or any other form of government ID.
And those “Category C” guns are now also the target of the European Union Commission as Kurier online, one of the largest Austrian Newspapers, reports this morning.
After “Charlie Hebdo attacks”, “the Friday 13th November 2015 Paris attacks” committed by Islamic terrorists and now the Cologne Sex attacks by Refugees and other criminals mostly with refugee status the European Union now decides to “Protects” its law-abiding citizens better by taking away their ability to protect themselves.
Their claim is that Bibi-guns, gas-airsoft-pistols can be manufactured into hot deadly weapons and they have to take away those weapons to avoid more terrorist attacks.
According to Kurier, the new regulations are tougher then tough and affect also Hunters, Sports shooters, and gun collectors.
The European Union claims that this is a reaction to the Paris attacks. A tighter gun law should embank terrorism. In reference to the 13th November IS-Terror-attack the European Union Commission calls this move a “command of the hour”. Tightening up the purchase, ownership, and import of civilian guns must take place.
In addition the European Union commission wants to ban Semi-Automatic weapons period. In addition they want a mandatory registration of Air-soft Gas guns, Alarm (Bobby) Guns, Toy guns and deactivated guns. (© by Wilhelm Theuretsbacher, Kurier online)
Here are a few facts The European Union is missing
Both Terrorist attacks, Charlie Hebdo as wells as the attack in Paris in November 2015, have NOT been committed with altered Bibi-Guns but with illegal smuggled fully automatic firearms. Those fire arms that are NOT available to purchase in Europe. Neither fully nor semi-automatic.
One CAN NOT purchase a semi-automatic AK-47, AR-15 or any other weapon like this. Those guns fall under the “War-Gun-Laws” and are highly illegal.
All Terrorists had those guns smuggled illegally to Europe. And no sensible terrorist would use an altered “Gas-Pistol”, or has anybody ever heard of a Terrorist using a Gas-Pistol?
And MOST CURTAINLY – TERRORSTS AND CRIMINALS DON’T BY THEIR GUNS IN STORES AND GET REGISTERED.
Gas-Pistols are only good as immediate Self-defense weapon. At best for short distance, if a woman is getting raped or robbed, only to incapacitate the attacker for a short period of time in order to get away. They are NOT DEADLY.
I am sure many women in Cologne, Hamburg, Salzburg, Vienna and many other European countries (latest news talk of over 300 reported incidents and still counting) would have loved to have one of those.
But now European Union, instead of giving women better access and training on those guns, and/or small caliber weapons, in order to defend themselves, the EU wants to make its law abiding citizens even more defenseless using Citizens protection as cover-up to justify their protection of criminals, Terrorists and other thugs.
Their [EU] solution to protect Citizens (NOT)
- Stay away in arm’s length of refugees and other Islamic immigrants (Henriette Reker, Mayor of Cologne).
- Oh and don’t forget you might also not wear any sexy or otherwise figure pleasing cloth you could offend the religious feelings of Islamists (Editors Interpretation of 1))
- The chief of Police of Salzburg actually thinks woman should only go out in company.
By the way – WHERE ARE THE LOUDMOUTHED LEFTIST FEMINISTS HERE?
Let’s face it Police is more busy to protect the Governmental “Open-Border-Political-Correctness-La-La-Policy” then law-abiding citizens. Cologne is the living proof of this.
Some news report that reports have been held back and orders are given to “avoid” cultural clashes (whatever that means).
Like I said – European Union, a dreamland for Terrorists and Criminals.
If you wonder where Obama and his leftist gun grabbers get their ideas from, well here is the answer.
The European gun laws and the new proposed regulations are basically what the United Nations demands since years. Unlike most Americans, Europeans worship the UN like a religion.
A naughty little beggar having evil thoughts here.
The resentment against the invasion of millions of undocumented immigrants and refugees grows rapidly in Europe. Despite the politicians hearing this they don’t care at all.
European policy of elected politicians states “We hear the problems of our constituent and are aware that we have to perform a better elucidation”. Or translated: “We hear you don’t like it but will indoctrinate or shut you up anyway”.
Europeans are highly fed up with their government that seems to care more about the political correctness and feelings of Muslims then the angst and fear of their citizens. In addition the governmental propaganda of “Welcome culture” does not work anymore.
Why this move on guns. It CAN NOT BE to lower the risk of Terrorism since even the dumbest politicians should know that terrorists and criminals don’t obey gun laws.
Or is it to disarm citizens to avoid a long overdue revolution? You be the judge of this.

IMF and U.S. Congress – making you pay for their failure, communist re-distribution through the backdoor
On November 5th 2013 an article on PersonalLiberty.com with the title “Are you prepared for a U.S. Bank Bail-In” reads as followed:
The days of the Federal government’s stealing money from taxpayers or borrowing it from the Federal Reserve to save troubled banks — as in it did in the 2008 crisis — may be over. Congress is considering imitating the theft in Cyprus and letting troubled banks “bail in” depositor money in order to make themselves solvent.
Jim Sinclair, chairman and CEO of Tanzania Royalty Exploration Corp., and whose family started Goldman Sachs, Salomon Brothers, Lehman Brothers, and others, has been warning of this for a while:
Bail-ins are coming to North America without any doubt, and will be remembered as the “Great Leveling,” of the “Great Flushing.” Not only can it happen here, but it will happen here… It stands on legal grounds by legal precedent both (sic) in the U.S., Canada and the UK.” (© Personal Liberty Digest)
What happened in Cyprus in 2008?
After the banks in the Tax oasis Cyprus crashed the local government decided to avoid tough constraints from the European Union and their extended arm the EZB (European Central Bank) they just take the money they need from the depositor savings.
The idea was that people who had savings there should do their share on rescuing the country by being forcefully stripped of 10% of their savings no matter if cash on a savings account or any form of assessment. After a major outcry in the public the Cyprus government paddled back and decided only people with more than € 10.000 Euro on savings are affected.
Could this happen in the U.S.?
Yes it can. According to the Personal Liberty Digest the United States Congress is already talking about a proper law that allows holding innocent Citizens responsible for the failure of Bank managers; the very same Bank-managers that we trust with our money.
But it gets worst
Bank-Managers are not the only irresponsible People with our money. Even worst is the Government and their denial to responsible administer the “People’s Money” commonly known as Tax revenue.
A new easy way out for Governments
In U.S. Mainstream media ignored, but in the European Media a huge Information-Bomb the IMF under Christine Lagarde came up with a radical idea on how governments could level their budgets.
Basis of the context is that the governments currently are and will not be capable of cutting their National debt and fulfill their fiscal responsibility of a balanced budget and no policy so far, investment and stimulus vs. Budget cuts, has been of any success.
And they really mean every savings no matter if it is cash on a savings-account or some sort of stock options. No matter if you are a private citizen, entrepreneur, small business owner or corporate owner.
And here is how it works
If you are a Private Citizen: Every responsible citizen tries to save some money. Either for the kid’s college, the well-deserved world travel in retirement, or just for hard times.
Savings are generally money “left” after it is taxed. This money then is called in the bankers’ language “Substance” or “Basics” because it is already taxed money. Now we are clear that on interests received on those saving substance we have to pay tax again – but ONLY on the interest and not again on the substance.
If the governments however follow the IMF guideline or idea then you are not only pay tax on your income and interest but also are stripped of 10% of the substance / stock option / retirement or any other saving.
If you are an Entrepreneur/Small business owner: You probably have a business account. After paying all your dues and fees to all sorts of state, federal or local governments you might save some money in a savings account – a so called “appropriation” for further investment and to grow your business.
In addition to what you now been stripped as Private Citizen (above) also your business appropriations is forcefully taxed. DON’T FORGET – IN ADDITION.
If you are a midsized Business owner (50 Employees and more) or corporate owner: Also to the two mentioned above add all your pensions’ funds and social funds you have aside for the wellbeing of your employees.
There is no limit to the upward spiral.
Christine Legard paddles back and relativized
After the publication hit the news, ignored by the U.S. Media it hit like a bomb in the European Media especially in Germany and Austria who have not only already been there but also those governments including the French government think very loudly for the longest time with this idea.
Facing public outcry over this idea Christine Legard, current chair of the IMF, immediately paddled back and announced that this is NOT policy only the summery of a brainstorming and analytical work by their think tank. But here is the real danger.
What is the IMF?
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is an international organization that was initiated in 1944 at the Bretton Woods Conferenceand formally created in 1945 by 29 member countries. The IMF’s stated goal was to assist in the reconstruction of the world’s international payment system post–World War II. Countries contribute money to a pool through a quota system from which countries with payment imbalances can borrow funds temporarily. Through this activity and others such as surveillance of its members’ economies and the demand for self-correcting policies, the IMF works to improve the economies of its member countries.
The IMF describes itself as “an organization of 188 countries, working to foster global monetary cooperation, secure financial stability, facilitate international trade, promote high employment and sustainable economic growth, and reduce poverty around the world.” The organization’s stated objectives are to promote international economic co-operation, international trade, employment, and exchange rate stability, including by making financial resources available to member countries to meet balance of payments needs. Its headquarters are in Washington, D.C., United States.
Reading between the lines proves why this “analytical work” is so dangerous. While other think tanks usually serve as basis for broader discussion the ideas of the IMF usually become policy.
The IMF ideas usually become the worldwide policy and guidelines for key interest rates and the financial course of the member countries.
Officially disclaimed, the discussion over an extensive Debt-cut commonly known in the financial world as “haircut” is evident. The positive experience for debtors by haircuts in Cyprus and Greece increased the liking of this idea. Also evident is who will be paying for those haircuts at the end – those who still have the funds on day X.
Thus this idea of the IMF is nothing new. The basics of this study dates back to 1952 and the “German Model” also known as “Germany 1952”.
Back then German restructured his derailed national budget elegantly with a compulsory levy of 50% but not at once.
They did it in form of a 30 year limited “1.67 percent-once-a-year wealth compulsory levy”.
The renowned “Boston Consulting Group”, short BCG in September 2011 came out with a very similar idea. Under the title “Mesopotamia – the looming threat of debt reduction” this highly respected group suggests in their, publically not very well recognized, study a permanent compulsory levy.
You see this idea is not new after all.
Bank Bail-In & Government Bail-In
Putting 1+1 together the idea of the U.S. Congress, allowing a bank bail-in through customer compulsory levy makes a whole lot more sense when you look at the idea of the IMF.
What at the first look appears to be a favor to banks and a move towards responsible fiscal policy not making tax payers but rather customers responsible for their banks at a closer look appears to be a test run.
If people accept the idea of a bank bail-in why should they not accept a “Government bail-in”? Properly sold, and we know how good progressive Democrats play the media propaganda, people could actually think that this is a one-time deal and it helps the government.
After all, it was the Democrat John F. Kennedy that said in 1961 “Don’t ask what your government can do for you, ask what you can do for your government”.
Have you ever experienced that our or any western, government was learning from its mistakes? Have you ever experienced when the federal government increases the income through higher taxes they actually cut spending, be more responsible, pay off their debt and put money aside for hard times (as Texas does with the Rainy day fund)?
I didn’t and who tells us that this will be case when the IMF gets through with their idea? And who will tell us that this idea of the IMF remains a one-time deduction and not a permanent re-distribution?
And is this the American way? Your thoughts are welcome.
God bless America
Die Presse, Austria – Nach IWF-Aufreger-Wer keine Schulden hat, zahlt
How the former Miss USA 2003, Harvard Lawyer and Republican Hopeful can salvage the GOP’s Image and easy become the Democrats Nightmare in 2014 AND in 2016
Fact is the Republican Party has among many others two major problems; one is the trench-warfe between the establishment, the Independent and the Grassroots Conservatives on one side and second Problem the GOP has is a major image problem. Those are facts we cannot deny.
Especially the latter is a major issue. While Conservatives have in every aspect no matter if it is social, economic or any other issue the better answers, solutions and ideas, the Democrats sell themselves better by using general known Communication tactics (Topic of my next column) as well as Saul Alinsky tactics to give the GOP the bad image of a Racists, woman hating, coldhearted Party that only cares for the rich.
There is hope
Outspoken Senators Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Liberty Issues and Ted Cruz “Missile” on ObamaCare not only rule the media but also the social networks among Grassroots Conservatives, Libertarians and Tea-Party activists.
But we also have to look into the nearby future and prepare for 2014 to maintain majority in congress and regain control over the Senate.
There are more true conservatives that need our attention and support. One of them is the young Lady I am about to introduce.
A young Lady that fights a fearless concentrated and neither in the regular media nor in the social media almost not-acknowledged fights for her political future in one of the Bluest States of the Nation – Illinois.
And it is a shame that she seems to vanish in lack of nationwide recognition because SHE IS the type of person we need in the GOP as the future. And she can drive the Progressive Liberals nuts, which sure is a major bonus.
She is outspoken, highly intelligent, young and beautiful enough to appeal to the younger voters has true conservative values without the Schoolmaster appearance of the Old-Man-Establishment.
Meet Erika N. Harold
Small town girl next door Erika N. Harold is everything but the “average Girl-Next-Door”. She is one of the most intelligent, interesting, and amazing characters in today’s politics.
Far away from the Democrat accusations of the GOP being a white-man-racist Party Erika is the living proof we are not. And she has a record that speaks volumes.
Born in February 20, 1980 Erika grows up in Urbana, Illinois a rural 37,000 people town with an amazing varied ethnical background.
On her father’s side she has Greek, German and Welsh ancestry and on her mother’s side Native-American, African-American and Russian descent.
Erika attended University High school and Urbana High School in Urbana Illinois. In 2007 she graduated with a B.A. as a Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and her law degree from Harvard University J.D. in 2007.
- While still going to school Erika Harold was 2002 selected Miss Illinois. Her Platform was “Preventing Youth Violence and Bullying: Protect Yourself, Respect Yourself”.
Her Platform choice grew out of personal experience being the subject to sexual and racial harassment with teachers and school administrators having her concerns dismissed.
- In 2003 Erika Harold became Miss America
- In the first week of her 2003 Pageant campaign she additionally adopted a dual platform for sexual abstinence. Of course not without being hammered by – you guessed it – Liberals accusing her of having a hidden agenda.
Washington Times Officials suggested a liberal bias on the pageant officials since they had no problem with the 1998 contestant running an HIV prevention platform.
She officially refused to drop the topic of sexual abstinence during a speech in 2002 at the National Press Club in Washington and received 38 support letters from members of Congress.
- Recently Erika has gained unfortunate headlines as GOP senior Official Jim Allen called her in an email to “Republican News Watch” a “little Queen” and liken her to a “Streetwalker with the Democrat party and RINO Republicans as pimps”
He later on had to resign over this remarks.
I guess we do a hell of a way better job the democrats ever can killing our own candidates with racial slurs and so play the democrats right in their hands. What a jerk Jim Allen is.
Politics (taken directly from her Website)
Taxation and Regulation
Erika believes that the government’s role should only be to build a framework or business that does not inhibit innovation or create excessive layers of bureaucracy. Narrowing the scope of power delegated to administrative agencies. A streamlined and modernized tax code and she opposes increases in individual marginal tax rate or capital gains tax rates.
Erika Harold proposes a Crop Insurance program to safeguard farmer’s needs. In addition she opposes implementations of burdensome regulations that undermine the agricultural industry. Recognizing the increasing global demand for sustainable and renewable energy sources, she also will support biofuels as a tool for addressing those demands.
Erika’s landmark issues are individual liberties, religious freedom according to the First Amendment and to battle every attempt to infringe our second Amendment rights. Other than that she is he a firm believer of the Constitution itself and fights for proper limits on governmental power.
Erika believes in the Declaration of Independence and “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” She is pro-Life and supports reforms within the criminal Justice system.
Unfortunatley Ms. Harold has not responded to my request to answer a few questions going deeper into her believes and stands on current political issues.

WSJ: To question, “Could Texas become a blue state?” Gov. Rick Perry “emits a hearty guffaw”
“The University of Texas will change its colors to maroon and white before Texas goes purple, much less blue.”
Gov. Perry was in D.C. Friday and Saturday. He met with Republican governors, most of whom – but not Perry – also attended the winter meeting of the National Governors Association, which included a Sunday night dinner at the White House. (Perry returned home Saturday.)
The Wall Street Journal interview with Perry noted that, “Many political pollsters and demographers predict the state could get wobbly sooner than many Republicans think, possibly going blue by as early as 2020.
“Gov. Perry rejects that notion with his own version of “Remember the Alamo.” Why?
“It’s because of freedom,” he says. “People in Texas truly aspire to freedom. They don’t want government coming in and telling them how much of this or how much of that.”
“At heart, he argues, there’s just something about Texas. “Democrats are about government getting bigger and bigger and government providing more and more,” he says. “Texans have never been for that, and Texans never will.”
Not so fast
Not everyone in the Texas GOP shares Perry’s sure confidence.
At Real Clear Politics, Scott Conroy visited Austin and reports that, “While the knee-jerk reaction among many Republicans would be to dismiss the idea that the state could be competitive in 2016 — just four years after Mitt Romney carried it by 16 points over President Obama — Texas GOP Chairman Steve Munisteri is in no mood to sneer.
“In an interview with RCP, Munisteri said that he has long taken seriously the possibility that Texas could become a battleground as early as 2016, particularly if Hillary Clinton becomes the Democratic standard-bearer.
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.

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.

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
