Cairo Protests

With the new flare up of violence and protests in the streets of Cairo, questions are beginning to mount for me anyway and I don’t think that I am alone in having questions for the president.  The first and foremost being, “What did you hope to accomplish by pressuring Mubarak to step down?”  This is a question of mine that speaks to a troubling series of events that is beginning to take shape in the Middle East.  Some have referred to it as the “Arab Spring” but I refer to it as a radical Islamic takeover.  These countries that are falling to this supposed “Arab Spring” are all religiously moderate countries.

Amid all of the other foreign policy issues President Obama is facing there is one in particular that I believe is quickly falling into blunder territory. I cannot for the life of me understand why Obama stands by and allows Iran to actively pursue nuclear armament. He believes that he is camouflaging his inaction on this issue by using terms like “diplomacy” and “sanctions”. What he is really saying is, “I don’t want to act against Iran in an election year.” You see this is a major problem for me. I have a problem with the President of the United States of America putting us all at risk to prove a political point. The President has this problem, and it has truly plagued him in politics since the beginning, he can’t make decisions. Alas, that however is truly a topic for another day. For now lets get right to the point. Iran is a dangerous rogue country with plans for world destruction and to deal with them as if they are anything else is suicidal. Read the rest of this entry »

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” – Second Amendment (1791), United States Constitution.

Since the beginning of America there has been a need for private citizens to protect not just themselves but their families, communities and properties.  During the Revolutionary War citizens from all over the colonies came together under a common purpose and it was the defense of a new nation.  Along with the Continental Army, they broke the chains of tyranny and defeated the British.  After the end of the war and during the drafting of the Constitution the founders saw that citizens not only had a right but also a responsibility to protect themselves from all enemies, foreign and domestic.  This responsibility gave birth to the Second Amendment.

“Those who trade liberty for security, deserve neither.”

-Benjamin Franklin

This has become the climate of America, simply put.  We are willing to give up everything for one special interest group or to feel a little safer at night.  What I am referring to are two pieces of legislation that could be the most outrageous since the infamous Patient Protection and Affordable Car Act, also known as Obamacare.  These two pieces of legislation are worlds apart but both carry the same disease of big government.  The legislation I am referring to is the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the National Defense Authorization Act amendment SB 1867.  They say that a frog will be slowly cooked to death as long as the water starts out cold.  With these two pieces of legislation currently in Congress, the burner has been lit, oh and we are the frogs!

“Every Who down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot, But the Grinch who lived just North of Whoville did not” Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

This classic tale of Christmas theft is well loved by children and adults around the world.  Who knew that today it would ring true in life.

Now the story reads, Every American down in Americaville liked jobs a lot but the Democrats who lived in Washington, D.C. did not.

This tale is far from classic but not far from truth.  A series of policies from the current administration and congress have ruined jobs and successfully pulled off a heist of Christmas that even the Grinch could be proud of. Read the rest of this entry »

Has Ron Paul committed the unpardonable sin?

It is no secret that in politics the infamous “race card” trumps all. We have seen it used time after time.

Most recently it has been used by Eric Holder to answer the question (at least in his own mind) as to why there is such a resounding cry for his resignation or impeachment.

Before him was Jeremiah Wright who so eloquently told his church that Obama would make a better president because Hillary Clinton didn’t know what it was like to be a black man in a society run by rich white people.

It is fair to say that the “race card” will continue to be the high card in political poker for years to come.  Read the rest of this entry »

The Iran Conspiracy

Posted: January 9, 2012 in Uncategorized

Is Iran conspiring to run the Middle East?

What we have in the world today is a perfect storm and it is coming straight for us. We have a president who is either inept or evil and refuses to lead and an entire Middle East region that is crumbling to what could be described as the most evil regime in the world.

Within days of the United States pulling out of Iraq the seemingly impossible has occurred. The region is falling farther into chaos. Iran has made several power plays in the last few days and if we don’t react soon, they are going to own the entire region. Read the rest of this entry »
