Wicked Commentary

Goshawk has some things about which he wants to rant.  We started this on Townhall and decided to continue his series of rants as they come up, which is often by the way, here at home.

As I think about the condition and the situation our county is in,  I can’t help but wonder, will we survive as the Free Republic we’ve always known?

Hard fought and won so many years ago. Soon to be lost forever?

Will we succumb to this Marxist/Communist takeover, and become another Totalitarian government?

Why are people arguing so much over the Republican candidates?  Don’t people see the bigger picture here that our country cannot survive under Dictator Obama for 4 more years?  Are not one of those Republican candidates better than what we have now?  Can we actually survive one more year of Obama?

It’s hard for me to believe that there are still some people out there who do not believe  “We the People” are under attack by our own Government.  Well.. It’s NOT really “our” government anymore.

In fact I don’t recognize it any longer.  It has become nothing more than a Criminal Gangster  Enterprise and we are the victims.

Everything Obama and his administration is doing is designed to weaken and bring down the United States.

It may take an armed revolution to stop them and save our country!

This brings me to the question that started this writing.

For years we’ve all heard people cry out, “Yes! They will take up arms and fight to the death for their country!” 

Or regarding their guns and 2nd Amendment:  “Out of my cold dead hands will they take my guns!”

So I wonder, will people of today’s culture, really stand and fight a bloody revolution? I know I and many of my fellow Vets will.

But I really, really wonder about others who have been coddled and not known a hard day in their lives?  Will they fight or run?  Will they lie down and take it?  If their families are threatened will they hand over their guns?

What would you do if a whole Swat Team of cops and the Blue Helmets show up, surround your house one day, burst through your door and demand you hand over your firearms or your whole family will be shot dead?

What would you really do?

Or what if you are told your children will be taken away while you are whisked off by the cops, the military, whoever shows up and throws you into a detention center without a lawyer, a hearing, a trial, and you are left to live in no man’s land in some military prison for years without due process?  And nobody knows where you are or if you are alive?

Locked away, nobody knows where you are, even you don’t know where you are. You just know you have no rights to an attorney, a hearing, a trial, and can be held indefinitely.

What I the Hawk want to know is what would people really do?  Are we just hearing steam blowing off all the while some people will just give in and give up?  Or will we have the determination and be willing to share our honor, integrity, and give up our fortunes to fight to save the greatest country on this earth, America? 

The Constitution is the guide which I never will abandon. The time is near at hand which must determine whether Americans are to be free men or slaves.

  1. I took an oath long ago to which there is no expiration date and I will not be anyone’s slave.

    What you describe above is EXACTLY what took place in Nazi Germany in the 1930’s. It should be noted that the US Army has been conducting exercises in the event of a national crisis or insurrection, the latest just a few weeks ago in Northern Virginia.

    It is difficult for anyone to contemplate such a scenario but the administration certainly is. The $64 dollar question remains “would the soldiers violate there oath?”. You bet! A soldier will obey his orders until told not to. Unless the officers and brass recognize the threat from within then we will have a bloodbath on our soil and it will continue until such time that their families are directly affected.

    Will the masses roll-over an take it? Yup! The rank and file are clueless to what their rights are and lack the fortitude to fight for them.

    The only ones that will resist are those that understand our Constitution. In the meantime, the lapdog media will portray them as right wing extremists and they will perish until such time that the military brass recognizes their wanton dereliction of duty. Some in Congress will decry the actions but will be drowned out by the cheering media who label them as enablers.

    If we need an example one must only look at the aftermath of Katrina. Many cite the violation of the Posse Comitatus Act but legally that is not the case. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posse_Comitatus_Act

    If we need to contemplate the mentality of our fellow citizens we need only look at the events that took place on Black Friday. Most of our citizenry cannot cite who their congressman is or basic parts of the Constitution but can easily recant the latest contestants on “Dancing with the Stars” or “Survivor”.

    The bottom line is that the Sheople will submit and the Sheep Dogs will get killed off.

    That’s my 2 cents.

    • Hardnox, I took the same oath and agree with you.

      When I was in the military, a document was passed around our unit and base. Asking the question. “If ordered to fire upon you’re own fellow citizens. Would you obey that order?” To a man, the answer was No!..I worry sometimes that the military of today is a complete different breed.

      And unfortunately, Pepp and I have the same feeling about the “Sheeple.”

    “Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say, ‘What should be the reward of such sacrifices?’ Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship, and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

          You are only too right unfortunately. These kids straight out of college can’t even name the VP or the Speaker of the House. How on earth would they even know who Samuel Adams was? Also they don’t even know what 1600 Pennsylvania Ave is. Nor can they place either Israel or Iran on a map or which continent they are on. I’ve seen college students who had no idea there was a WWII. And no idea there was a Korean or Vietnam war. Samuel Adams???????? Hardly!

          When I worked a Xavier U in Cinti., I had my students ask me to tell them about the Vietnam war as they had never been taught one thing on it. I gladly filled them in since they were interested. It had not been taught in high school, so now that they were at Xavier and it had arisen, they wanted to know what I knew since I lived through it. Now, there was one place some teaching was being done, not socialist propaganda. But then again it is a Catholic university very well recognized in the community. btw, a diploma from Xavier means an automatic job in the business community in Cincinnati. Their Masters program is excellent.

    Great post awk’! For the regular US citizens; they are blind to the fact that the US has been in a war since WWII and that was 70 yrs ago. Our vets and currently serving military realize we’ve fought many wars since WWII; offshore and at home. I believe the far majority of US citizen’s has gotten so lazy and complacent, because the majority has been feed from a “silver” spoon their entire life; they’ve never had to “fight” for anything serious. And I freely admit I have been feed from a “silver” spoon all my life. That is one of the great benefit’s of being a US citizen, because our Founder’s wrote a wonderful constitution giving our Republic an existence free of tyrant’s, dictator’s and more free liberties than any nation has ever known.

    I too share you’re concern awk’ about what the civvies will do when actually faced with the choice of willing to fight and die to save our Republic or roll over when they come face to face with tyranny knocking on their own front door. I believe that most (especially the ones “blowing steam”) will simply roll over. The far majority they have never sacrificed very much for all the for all their “monetary” items and plush life they were blessed with by our Lord giving our Founders the wisdom and courage to write a perfect constitution that allowed them their life style. They would remain just as delusional as they are right now that simply handing over their guns isn’t going to be a big deal; they’ll still have all the monetary items the value so dearly. That mind frame is extremely delusional and ignorant. The comparison “HN” made about Hitler is dead on with regard to what is happening in the US right now. The sheep believed in the Shepperd and he took a hell of a lot more away from them than just their guns.

    I love our country and when they the blue helmet’s come knocking on my door, I can only pray our Lord will give the strength and courage to follow through with my convictions. The most sad thing is the majority of US citizens don’t even share my convictions. They have lived such comfortable lives; they’ve forgotten is was our Lords guidance and constitution thats allowed them to live such comfortable lives. When we forget the reason we have something; then we’ve become to damn stupid to fight for what we have.

    When the war does come to destroy our great nation from “within”; I hope and pray that the bravest citizens we have (that swore an oath to our consitution and not our leader) will realize our leader is now an enemy of our constitution and they will not follow the orders of a man, but hold to their oath to our consitution and they rebel against our leader. Those brave citizens are the only chance we have of winning the war when it escalates to US citizens spilling each others blood in our own streets. I have little to no hope enough civvies will have the courage or guts to fight and be willing to die to save our great Republic.

      It took only 3 % of the population who fought the First Revolution. Perhaps 3 % of us is what we will only need now. On Face Book, I had 2 Marines tell me they had my back in case of war. The Marines will fight as any vet will in my opinion. Then there will be some civies who hold their country near and dear enough to fight. The rest will hide in holes. We don’t need all of them IMHO to fight. We just need at least that 3% and we also have the militias. They have been gearing up for the last year, we have the Oath Keepers and the Veteran Defender groups too. They will fight no doubt in my mind.

    Monetary actions taken yesterday in Washington, Beijing, and in the EU have taken away the possibility that the first in a cascade of dominoes will fall for at least ten days. That said, when Hawk chastises for being picky among Republican prexy-primary contenders, his presumption must be that (a) America can and will survive until January of 2013, and (b) that if it indeed does, that a Republican-majority (of any stripe) House and Senate, along with an un-Obama Republican (of any stripe) can and will stop the downward momentum on a dime, and reverse course . . . immediately.

    While everyone I know and know of agrees with both a and b, and thus with Hawk, I do not. In early Fall of 2008 New York Democrat Senator Chuck Shumer announced out of the blue that a particular California bank was in trouble. That caused a run on that bank, which caused runs on other banks, which moved forward the economic crash by at least five months.

    If a Dick Durbin or Chuck Shumer or Barney Frank (as a going away gift) did a five-minute-late-day talk on the floor of Congress to suggest that a number of the big banks in New York were holding dangerous amounts of Italian debt, that itself could cause a run on them by depositors, resulting in those banks being the first domino to tip Greece, then Italy, then in unknown order Spain, Portugal, Ireland, France, California, Michigan, New Jersey, Massachusetts, the United States, Detroit, a couple of cities in New Jersey, a couple of cities in California.

    Hey, as I said before, I think I’m alone here, and as I’ve also said here before, at least an order of fries AND a Coke shy of a Happy Meal, so . . . And, if those legislators saw polling which made clear that Democrats would surely lose both the Senate and the House and the White House, along with lots of state legislatures and governorships in November of 2012; they wouldn’t pull a Cloward & Piven top-down would they?

      Though what you say about the “monetary’ collapse is true. That is not what I’m speaking of at all.

      And my assumption is not that we will survive until Jan of 2013. On the contrary, I’m saying the way it’s going with Obama. We may not make it that far. These criminals in charge are going to pull out all stops to maintain their hold on power.The corruption will fly like we’ve never seen it. So the Republican’s, had better vote (if there is still an election) for whomever is the nominee. As a vote ‘against’ Ovomit! We must get him and ALL criminals out of the government!

        The 20th century in America was a long, long struggle with progressives slowly winning, never ever giving up an inch. If Constitutional Conservatives, as I see it, proceed slowly, they’ll lose both houses of Congress, beginning in 2015, and probably have the Obama-replacement impeached.

          On the other hand, if we lose and Ovomit and his Communist buddies stay in control for another four years. The rest of you’re argument would be nullified.

Some are wondering if Lisa Jackson is the actual president of this country.

          Rand Paul has a budget which gets rid of every last department that is not needed and is not Constitutional. Of course he can’t get anyone to go along with his budget. Disgusting. He would have us solvent in 5 to 6 years under his budget as he has it outlined.

But, I personally have never seen or heard of a president so blatantly disregard our laws, so obviously personally light the fire to directly attack our Republic and have so much hatred of our constitution than Obuma.

        Just in the years of my life of liberal presidents; Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Obuma, life for conservative values certainly took a beating and sucked! Obuma, however, has taken it to a level that no other Democratic president ever has in our history (that I am aware of). I believe that is the “few years” PBR is referencing.

          • Thank you for the info I was not aware of drpete. Those are indeed
            heinous actions by a US president; especially what Wilson did. FDR dong what he did is despicable (but not surprising; one of the very worst presidents we’ve ever endured) by using threats against the Supreme Court to pass his unconstitutional laws.

            If I am of the correct understanding from your post; FDR did not threaten to dismiss them from the Supreme Court with a stroke of his pen. He threatened them to use his power to influence the voters to replace those who oppose him. Am I under the correct assumption? If I am and that Supreme Court coward down to his threats; then shame on THEM. Because they were “empty” threats!

            All presidents nominate Supreme Court justices every chance they get just to implant their own ideology into the highest court in our nation, but they are appointed to the court by a voting committee. Thank God we have been lucky at times to have conservative Republicans as president when a sitting justice retires and hopefully the voting committee is not overloaded with parasite liberals. It seems to me the justices that were nominated by conservative presidents are as close as we’ll get to the Supreme Court abiding by the constitution.

            Our liberal presidents like JFK, LBJ, Obuma have destroyed the Supreme Court with their nominees and the overrun liberal voters that appointed them. And for some reason, all Liberal Justices seem to live into their 90’s! I appreciate you adding more knowledge of our history to me!

            FDR, having a Democrat supermajority in the Senate, informed the Justices that — in one case — if they ruled the Wagner Act unconstitutional, he would appoint as many as eight additional Justices, then sign the Wagner Act again.

  6. The Hawk is taking over for me because I’m not up to much since tomorrow is the 3rd anniversary of my son’s suicide. Grief has me overwhelmed.

    But, I am not coming on here for that reason. I want to make a public statement on here that the Hawk and I do not drink, make moonshine, nor do we do drugs of any kind, no pot, no cocaine, and no meth labs as there are many here in KY.

    When/if the government oppressors come to take our guns, we have made a pact, the Hawk and I, that we are going out shooting. We won’t allow it. We both believe in our 2nd Amendment rights to the fullest. I, being a Libertarian, will not have the federal government come into our house, without a warrant, to search our house or take guns out, even though those rights have been abolished under the Obama administration, no further 4th Amendment rights. The 5th Amendments rights are being abolished by the Senate, as I wrote about in my last article. The only 2 men standing up for those rights were Rand Paul and Mark Kirk, pretty pathetic among the Senators who took an oath.

    Therefore i want everyone to know if they hear or see a story about us being taken down by a swat team, military, whoever and the story is we were hiding some “unlawful drugs” or other “unlawful” materials it is a flat out lie to cover up the fact that we were shot down for defending what we believe to be our rights under the Constitution. Ron took an oath, I didn’t, but I will not allow myself to lie down and take this. I’m a fighter and always will be. That is one reason the Hawk married me.

    Anyone who follows Judge Napolitano has not only heard these stories, but seen them. The people’s houses that have been raided, and many have, had nothing whatsoever to do with drug busts. The swat teams and cops simply took out innocent people. I believe this will continue to occur on a more frequent basis as the Bill of Rights is abolished as we move into a dictatorship.

    Lots of people may laugh that this will never happen, but laughing about it is not the operative emotion to be felt right now. It is all over the Internet how people are talking about getting ready for a revolution. I do believe the “government” will try to cover up killings and/or massive killings by planting materials into houses upon which they can lie to cover the real operations that will be going on once they begin their purges. Anyone who opposes the new dictatorship will be imprisoned and/or shot and killed.

    Even though that may sound fantastical to many, I’ve been right in my predictions many times I hate to say. I hope on this one I am wrong. But, we are heading into that direction and other people can see it too, those with their eyes open. Some people have their eyes wide shut, denial and disbelief. We are moving towards a Stalin like government, not a Hitler one. The government is not trying to create an Aryan nation here, but one of the proletariat vs the slaves for which we, if able and the right age, will be kept alive to work for them.

    Those whose eyes are wide shut, had better find a place in their narrow range of thinking to open them and start to see what is really happening in this country right now and before long there will be no Republic. It is not just the administration in on this, but almost the entire government including Republicans who are complicit in this treason. Everyone needs to look at the broader picture of what is happening to us bit by bit.

    Hot off the AP press my fellow citizens that have been screwed by congress again!

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Ignoring a presidential veto threat, the Democratic-controlled Senate moved methodically Thursday to complete a massive defense bill that would deny suspected terrorists, even U.S. citizens seized within the nation’s borders, the right to trial and subject them to indefinite detention.

    The Senate rejected an effort by Intelligence Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein to limit a military custody requirement for suspects to those captured outside the United States. The vote was 55-45. Feinstein, D-Calif., said her goal was to ensure “the military won’t be roaming our streets looking for suspected terrorists.”

    The issue divided Democrats with nine senators, many facing re-election next year, breaking with the leadership and administration to vote against the amendment. Republicans held firm, with only Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Mark Kirk of Illinois and Mike Lee of Utah backing Feinstein’s effort.

    Overall, the deficit-driven bill would authorize $662 billion for military personnel, weapons systems, national security programs in the Energy Department and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in the fiscal year that began Oct. 1.

    Who wudda thunk it??? Rand Paul, Mark Kirk and Mike Lee agreeing with Feinstein?????

Then we know which ones need to be kicked out of office for sure. They have gone directly against the Constitution and they threw their oath to it onto the garbage heap of history. They must be punished for this.

      It is no surprise to me that Rand Paul, Mark Kirk and Mike Lee stood up for the Constitution. Where was Rubio on this? Where were the other Repubs?

      Everyone on the left says we “rednecks” are stupid and uneducated people. I think Kentucky proved that scenario wrong since we voted in Rand Paul, a strict Constitutional person, into office here in double digits. I believe that shows Kentuckians, at least a lot of them, have some smarts.

            Dave on a releated note: Sen. Cornyn sent an email comparing Jimma Carter and Obama.In it he talks about the Malazi Carter, and the blame-American people-Obama, saying we need to stop him. Then he has a vote like this, which in effect makes Americans guilty until proven otherwise… if I understand it. So that’s another problem for Republicans, having a consistent message. Of course this email was for public consumption, the vote is what he believes. But this reveals what we already know, replacing D’s with R’s is not the solution. “It’s the mindset, stupid” — What a simpleton!

            Sorry, my response to your comment about Sen. Cornyn is way down here, but there is a five post limit per comment that ensures the five comments can be read by all viewers; six just don’t work.

            I could not agree with you more that replacing Congressmen/women just for the sake of the initial after their name is not sound voting practice. In KY, we are very fortunate to have Rand Paul and conservatives are very disappointed with Mitch McConnell; both are “R’s”. Paul has a strict adhere to the constitution policy and McConnell has drifted more and more to the center, it not to the left on several issues, in recent years. If KY had a Dem. run against Mitch and shared Paul’s values and voted accordingly; I would vote for the Dem! You stated it perfectly, “It’s the mindset!” Great input PBR!

    thedrpete: Well, I guess you are right its more than a few years. I satand corrected.
    ———–
    As to what is needed to get us back on the right path, I believe it’s vital to have Christians, or the church in general, with us to be effective. Some don’t want to hear that and some just disagree, but I cannot see success without that. Without sounding preachy, the Bible does say, “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chron 7:14) Beyond that, Christians should also be an influence.(not part of the problem) The problem is many Christians, or so much of Christianity in general, are on the opposite page not offering much help. I say that with reservations and sadness they’ve been co-opted, though, whether it’s Catholics or mainline protestants and churches. They lost their saltiness. The more I hear too many Christians talk, and the more I hear of Obama’s cronies the more I realize it’s the case. Sure, thankfully not all but many have bought into the socialist paradigm. Well, please forgive the reminder about the current situation.

      I believe you bring up a very valid point! I’m not going to get “too” preachy myself, but I think we can track back to when the true denigration of our society kicked into over drive, was when all out war was declared on God. The loons remove God out or our society more and more every single day. Today, the loons call that being “Politically Correct!”

      A great majority of parents no longer teach values to our children, our public school system does not teach values to our children, look at who our children now look up to and admire…Rapper’s; so the last thing standing in the way of the loons moving us towards communism was God. God is now almost gone, from a country he has blessed many times over and over, so how shall this country now stand with God looking over us. The thought of it scares me to death.

      Joseph Stalin said —- “America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.”

      And this is exactly what they’ve been doing for years! Remember when Obama said..”This is no longer a Christian nation!”

      You are not sounding preachy. You hit on a real issue. This country, or some in it have turned away from God. I heard Beck say once that we must be on “God’s side” not ask Him to be on “our side”. We must show Him that we still believe in God and the morals and virtues upon which this country was founded.

      Many have lost their way. The country has gone down into decadence and depravity on some levels. So I agree with what you are saying.

      Ever wonder what it would be like to live in this country in a civil war? Maybe we are finding out, sort of, how it might feel. No, I don’t mean with cannons and artilary shelling, though it sort of seems that way. And no I’m not referring to the occupiers’ lovely liberal protests in disenchanted liberaldom.

      The federal government seems to be at war with the states, and some states have had enough shoved down their throats so they have lodged court battles against the federal leviathan to try to keep it at bay. Heck, it should not surprise us, right-wingers have been labeled extremists and terrorists by the nation’s biggest bully.

      The federal government has filed suit after suit against states to have them comply with their mandates. It has even tried to tell them what laws they can pass and enact in their states. It is scheming to deny an oil pipeline from our neighbor to the north. It refuses to address the effects of illegals from the south. It even ran a gun-walking operation to the south. They are waging war with our energy companies. It’s about as far from respect for the tenth amendment as the US government can get. So it requires little imagination to think there is a war afoot in the country. While we don’t have states warring against each other, we sure have the federal government goose stepping its way over any of them it feels a desire to. {Whether its EPA, the state depart, or justice.} And it seems to all put the Supreme Court smack dab in the middle of it. The feds have shown no willingness to let states alone and there’s every indication it will only increase its actions against them.

      Okay, a civil war analogy may be technically inaccurate. What we have is a federal leviathan waging war against the states. If this is just the opening act, I don’t want to see how it ends. So even when states talk about their states’ powers, liberals start to scream about secession and treason against the US government. You begin to wonder how far away the Secret Police are?

        The federal government is at war with the states. Have you ever seen anything like this before? Never. The feds are suing the states for NOTdoing the job the feds are supposed to be doing??????????? To me that is treasonous right there.

        Things are getting worse every day. You are so right about what is going on. We are no longer safe in our own country. I just posted a link on a new post to read.

        I think we already have SS here, PBR. Did you hear about that secret government tracking program that is on all blackberrys, ipods, and smart phones? And you can’t get rid of it. It tracks everything you do, where you go and you keystrokes about what you are typing to others. Pretty scary stuff.

        Obama and his administration ,and perhaps 3/4 of Congress, are out and out Traitors! Never in the history of our country have we had a president join with foreign countries AGAINST the United States! He gladly allows; Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Chile to join him in an attack against us!. (Arizona, and other states.) If that is not Treason, then I don’t know what is!
