Twenty-plus years on, the collapse of the USSR in 1991 threatened massive Western defense budgets, bereft of a major enemy like the “Evil Empire.”
Western militaries conveniently found a new global enemy a decade later following the terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001, and since then, they have struggled in the light of invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan to adapt their strategies to cope with the new threat, making defending the “homeland” the highest priority.
While the U.S. created the “Department of Homeland Security,” Washington’s less prosperous European allies have been forced to seek solutions to indigenous defense largely by themselves beyond NATO.
Except that the NATO charter Chapter 5 stipulates that an attack upon a member state will be met by the entire coalition.
European democracies have scrambled to define both national and European Union security issues, particularly since the global economic downturn, which began in 2008, forcing hard choices amongst European defense ministries.
Furthermore, many European nations now have significant post-colonial immigration populations, ramping up security concerns, from both indigenous citizens and ongoing concerns of foreign aggression. Defending the United Kingdom’s territorial, maritime and aerial space is the primary mission of Britain’s Ministry of Defense.
A laudable objective, but, in a time of declining MOD revenues amid energy imports, perhaps, a wind farm too far?
Needless to say, security encompasses protecting the country access to energy, so anything that reduces the kingdom’s dependency on foreign energy imports must be a good thing, correct?
The latest threat to Britain?
Wind power, apparently.
The MOD has come out against two proposed 115 foot wind power towers in Cornwall, which they assert are so big they could look like planes on monitoring equipment.
The MOD assert that the wind towers green energy devices could confuse computer systems designed to protect the UK and identify the turbines as a threat, triggering the MOD to send in fighter aircraft to investigate, and while the RAF was preoccupied, allowing real enemies to sneak into British airspace, and accordingly, are against their construction.
The unpatriotic British citizens attempting to undermine British aerial defense are Richard and Ian Lobb, who want to install the 50 kilowatt towers on their adjacent farms in St Ewe, Cornwall. The ever vigilant MOD which warned the installation would cause “unacceptable interference” to an air traffic control radar 30 miles away in Wembury, Devon.
According to the MOD, “Wind turbines have been shown to have detrimental effects on the performance of MoD ATC radars. These effects include the desensitisation of radar in the vicinity of the turbines, and the creation of ‘false’ aircraft returns which air traffic controllers must treat as real. The desensitisation of radar could result in aircraft not being detected by the radar and therefore not presented to air traffic controllers. The creation of ‘false’ aircraft display on the radar leads to increased workload for both controllers and aircrews and may have a significant operati onal impact. Furthermore, real aircraft returns can be obscured by the turbine’s radar returns, making the tracking of conflicting, unknown aircraft much more difficult.”
A tad of history and geography here.
Radar installations along the English Channel were crucial in Britain winning the crucial Battle of Britain in 1940 against Hitler’s Luftwaffe, so Britain’s RAF is hardly unfamiliar with the principles of radar, more than seventy years later.
Secondly, how does a stationary object generate a hostile radar signature, unlike an incoming aircraft moving at hundreds of miles per hour?
Thirdly, virtually all of the RAF’s interception missions during the Cold War and after were against Soviet, and now Russian military aircraft approaching from the northeast, across the North Sea.
Cornwall, in Britain’s extreme southwest, is geographically rather distant from this area.
So, who’s to send the threats?
The people of Cornwall deserve their green energy, and the MOD officials should be chastised for their ramping up of a non-existent problem.
The Armada was over four centuries ago, World War Two over 70 years ago – the people of Cornwall deserve electricity from renewable energy sources, as it hardly seems to be a threat to national security beyond those MOD boffins who have apparently spent too much time at the pub over lunch hour.

It gets more and more awful. More disgusting. More distorted.
The Times of Israel has the following headline this morning (emphasis added):
“In sea change, Arab League backs land swaps in peace talks”
A sea change is defined as a marked change or a transformation. But what we’re looking at here is nothing of the sort.
Members of the Arab League, representing seven Arab nations, met with top US officials yesterday in Washington. The topic of discussion was the “peace process” and ways in which the Arab nations might advance it.
After the League delegation huddled for consultations at Blair House, Qatari Prime Minister Sheik Hamad Bin Jassem Al Thani announced “the possibility of ‘comparable,’ mutually agreed and ‘minor‘ land swaps between the Israelis and the Palestinians.” (Emphasis added)
Note that “land swaps” are not agreed to firmly in principle. There is a “possibility” of support for this, which means at the end of the day they might say, “Sorry, we won’t do this after all.” After all, only seven of 22 nations of the League were represented here.
And even if they were to agree, in any case it would be “minor” swaps only. Piddling. Only piddling.
Most importantly, this entire notion is predicated upon an erroneous and unacceptable concept.
Secretary of State Kerry, who seems to have staked his entire professional (sic) reputation on succeeding with the “peace process,” gushed:
“We’ve had a very positive, very constructive discussion over the course of the afternoon, with positive results…”
He praised the League for the “important role it is playing, and is determined to play, in bringing about a peace in the Middle East.”
A bit of background is in order here:
The Arab League “Peace Plan” had originally been advanced by Saudi Arabia in 2002, then was adopted by the League, and subsequently “re-endorsed” by the League in 2007. It was, and is, a horror:
If Israel will surrender all lands acquired in 1967, and provide for a “just” settlement of the Palestinian Arab refugee problem, based on UN General Assembly Resolution 194 — which the Arab world interprets as giving the “refugees” “right of return,” when in fact there is no such thing — then the Arab world will “normalize” relations with Israel. No specification of what normalization means re: diplomatic, security, economic interaction and ties.
Translation: If you will surrender the Temple Mount, and the Kotel, and the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hevron, and Shilo, and much more, including the Golan Heights. And if you will return to the 1967 line [the Green Line], which, admittedly, was recognized by Security Council Resolution 242, passed after the Six Day War, as not providing a secure border. And in addition, if you will take within your borders millions of so-called refugees, rendered radical and hostile by decades of UNRWA influence. Then all 22 of the Arab states — and not just “Palestine” — will have some sort of ties with you.
This was touted as a great opportunity for Israel, which would secure “normalization” with the whole Arab world in one fell blow.
There were to be no negotiations with this plan. It was a take-it-or-leave-it deal.
Israel rejected it out of hand. Israel has legitimate rights to Judea and Samaria, based on a heritage that is more than 3,000 years old, as well as legally binding resolutions in the twentieth century, notably the Mandate for Palestine. Israel will never return to the ’67 line — which, in addition to everything else, provides insufficient strategic depth for adequate security. Resolution 242 says the final border of Israel must be determined by negotiations. Agreeing to pull back without negotiations is not the way to go.
For years now, the Palestinian Authority and its supporters have promoted the idea that the ’67 line is Israel’s “real” border, and that everything on the other side “belongs” to the Palestinian Arabs. It is a crock. A myth. But unfortunately — because successive Israeli governments have not been vigorous enough in countering this — it has become accepted thinking in many places.
It is this myth, this crock, upon which the Arab League fashioned its “peace proposal.”
And, more recently, it has been President Barack Obama who has advanced proposals based on the same myth. Has he swallowed it whole, so that he really believes it? There is no way to be certain, although there is ample reason to suspect so. We only know what he says.
Obama’s only deviation from the stipulation of return to the ’67 line is the concept of “agreed-upon swaps” of land. This means the principle of the ’67 line as Israel’s legitimate border is retained but if Israel wants to hold on to a community that, say, spreads over two square kilometers east of the line, then “Palestine” will be given two square kilometers of land west of the line, inside of Israel. In the end, Israel will be defined by an area no greater than what rests within the ’67 line.
No and no!!
For the record, and this is terribly important: the ’67 line, or Green Line, was, with very minor adjustments, the 1949 armistice line. It is the line that was drawn when Israel and Jordan stopped fighting, at the end of the War of Independence: Israel fought that war defensively, having been attacked by the Arab nations on the day she declared independence. It is referred to as the “’67 line” because Israel was behind that line until June 1967, when the Six Day war was fought.
The armistice agreement signed between Jordan and Israel stipulated that the line was temporary and that the permanent line would be determined by negotiations. Actually, this stipulation was put in at Jordan’s insistence. And, please, note that it WAS Jordan on the other side of the line — the nation with which, it was presumed, Israel would ultimately negotiate. There was no talk of “Palestine” or a “Palestinian people” with whom Israel had to negotiate. Whatever existed on the other side of the armistice line, it certainly wasn’t a Palestinian state, or land defined as belonging to a Palestinian people.
How Israel could be required to “return” Judea and Samaria to the Palestinian Arabs is a genuine mystery. The historical situation has been distorted: It has morphed from the reality into what people of a certain political bent wish it to be.
You will be doing Israel an enormous service if you circulate this information — this historical clarification — as broadly as possible.
If you see reference in news sources to “Israel’s ’67 border,” send a correction: It was never a border, it was an armistice line, and it was temporary; both the armistice agreement with Jordan and the subsequent UN Security Council Resolution 242, called for negotiations to determine Israel’s final eastern border.
What I see is that Kerry went to these Arab League members and asked them for some flexibility so that he might move ahead with the infernal process. And, to his delight, they delivered. Not only delivered, but stated themselves willing to go along with parameters outlined by the president.
At a press conference, Kerry declared:
“The US and Arab League delegation here this afternoon agreed that peace between Israelis and Palestinians would advance security, prosperity, and stability in the Middle East. And that is a common interest for the region and the whole world…”
Well, then, it’s the Arab world that sees eye-to-eye with President Obama, yes? And Israel?
We can anticipate that the secretary will now turn to Israel with a request/a veiled demand for more “flexibility,” for the sake of stability in the Middle East. But what has been tentatively proposed is no more acceptable to Israel than the previous formulation of the Arab League plan, or only very minutely so. (Now, presumably, there would be some negotiations to determine the “minor swaps.”)
The essential premises of the plan remain as unsatisfactory, and as faulty as a basis for peace, as ever.
(With this discussion we have left aside the fact that the entire notion of Israel striking a genuine peace agreement with the PA — a weak, totally corrupt, terrorist-supporting entity — is nonsense. An issue to be re-visited on another day.)
I do not, for a moment, anticipate that Israel will agree to the terms tentatively outlined by the Arab League. But I do anticipate a huge amount of pressure coming down the road.
It never hurts to communicate to Prime Minister Netanyahu very briefly to let him know you are with him and encourage him to stand strong.
The peace conference to be held in the US that Haaretz had issued a tentative report on recently — which I carried — is being denied by the US government. Maybe they thought better of it. Maybe Haaretz was too eager. Whatever the case, that, at least is good news.
Next posting, hopefully on Syria.

Upon our brief return to our home in Florida, Sammy, our greyhound gave me a ho-hum look and retired to his doggie-bed; not the excited welcome home I expected after being away for over a month. I fear the house-sitter has stolen the affection of my dog.
Mary and I have been in Massachusetts feverishly working to make Conservative Michael Sullivan the Republican nominee in the Massachusetts special election to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by John Kerry.
Many of you may wonder why my Conservative Campaign Committee has been working so diligently on the Massachusetts Senate race. What makes flipping the Massachusetts traditionally Democrat seat to a Republican seat of such national importance? Well, it could start a ripple effect in the political landscape.
Folks, in case you have not noticed, we are losing America to the socialists/progressives. Obama is like a political Dr. Frankenstein who has created his lifelong dream, a socialist/progressive monster. With his eyes bulging with excitement, Obama yells with elation, It’s alive! It’s alive!
Facing little to no opposition from terrified Republicans, Obama’s socialist/progressive monster is wrecking havoc making all of the Left’s cultural and societal dreams come true; the redefinition of marriage, government control of your children, suppression of Christianity, disarming the American people, open borders and amnesty for illegals, a majority of the population on government assistance and most devastating of all, government having total control of our behavior – deciding who lives and who dies via Obamacare.
For those of you who think I am crazy or exaggerating, I offer a few current events.
Attorney General Eric Holder declared, “amnesty is a civil right”. Holder promises government will work to protect illegal aliens. http://www.wnd.com/2013/04/holder-amnesty-is-a-civil-right/
We have been told 11 million – but the reality is the new immigration bill will bring in 33 million new immigrants over the next 10 years. Rest assured, 25 million will vote Democrat for the freebies and have no desire to assimilate; thus, marking the end of the Republican Party. http://dailycaller.com/2013/04/26/anti-immigration-group-immigration-bill-to-bring-in-at-least-33-million-people/
In keeping with the Obama administration’s continuing assault on business, Harry Reid is consumed with rushing through an internet sales tax. http://blogs.marketwatch.com/election/2013/04/25/reid-tries-to-bring-internet-sales-tax-bill-to-final-vote/
Did you ever believe a day would come in America when government would force your daughter to indulge in lesbianism? A government run school curriculum forces middle school girls to stand in front of the class and kiss pretending they are lesbians. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2013/04/outrage-alert-child-abuse-in-the-govt-run-school-curriculum-children-forced-to-kiss-same-gender-in-simulated-homosexuality-video/
Exposed during the Dr Gosnell trial is the practice of “snipping” which is sticking scissors into the back of the baby’s neck and cutting the spinal cord. Snipping is done to kill those annoying babies with such a will to live that they survive the abortion undermining the abortionist. The shocking and horrific abuses of the poor and minority women revealed in the Dr Gosnell trial has drawn not one word of criticism from Planned Parenthood. Meanwhile, Obama is the first sitting U.S. president to address/speak at a gala for Planned Parenthood which is essentially an abortion factory – especially of minority babies. Obama went as far as to demonize anyone opposing abortion. Planned Parenthood aborts 4000 babies a day folks – 4000 babies a day. http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2013/04/why-dr-kermit-gosnells-trial-should-be-a-front-page-story/274944/
We, the Tea Party, and other patriots who love America are the perceived peasants who have risen up with pitchforks to challenge the out-of-control beast created by Obama. But what is our game plan – our strategy for victory? Simple: Install Conservatives in as many key positions as possible. This strategy along with prayer for divine help and guidance is the only way to restore our great country to the vision of our Founding Fathers. We restore America one race – installing one conservative candidate at a time.
So, this is why Mary and I have been away from our Florida home living in Massachusetts for the last month or so – abandoning my dog Sammy and her cat, Marilyn.
Filling Kerry’s seat in the Senate with a Conservative Republican will give majority leader Harry Reid one less rubber-stamped vote. A Conservative in Kerry’s seat would also be another thorn in Obama’s side joining fellow constitutionalists Marco Rubio, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.
If the Republicans can find the courage to stand on principles and do well in the 2014 midterm elections, we could possibly, dare I say it, win the Senate. Then, we can impersonate Donald Trump and say, “Harry Reid, you’re fired!”
This is why the Senate race in Massachusetts is so much bigger than just Massachusetts. Patriots, please contact your Massachusetts family, friends and associates and encourage them to vote for the conservative Republican choice, Michael Sullivan for U.S. Senate, in the Tuesday, April 30th primary.
Also, can anyone advise how I can rekindle Sammy, my greyhound dog’s loyalty and affection?

Conscience of a Conservative
“Many a true word is spoken in jest” said William Shakespeare and “Some truths, too painful or too likely to provoke, can be spoken only when the listener has been disarmed by laughter” are proverbial truths.
Barack Hussein Obama cracked a joke at the White House Correspondents Dinner the other day when he said, “I’m not the strapping young Muslim socialist I used to be.” The correspondents who worked for the Democrat Party rolled in laughter. Really, Barry? After you wrote about being mentored for 10 years by a card-carrying Communist named Frank Marshall Davis before you went off to college I would never have guessed you were a socialist. And after you were enrolled in school in Indonesia as a Muslim where you learned to appreciate the sound of the Muslim call to prayers 5 times a day and to read and recite the Qur’an in fluent Arabic, I would never have guessed you were a Muslim. And if you still are a Muslim you must be a very special one who enjoys privileges that no other Muslim enjoys, because as you know Islam demands that homosexuals be condemned to death and if you are no longer a Muslim you also know Islam demands that those who convert to another religion from Islam become Apostates and they also are condemned to death.
One day later in the midst of simmering crises in all corners of the globe, within an hour after an obscure NBA player named Jason Collins made the announcement that he was a homosexual, Barack Hussein Obama felt it necessary to telephone him and congratulate him for his courage. One can only wonder if that telephone conversation was just another joke, a la William Shakespeare, and if it was, did Barry Soetoro //aka// Barack Hussein Obama also tell Jason Collins, “I wish I had your courage.”
This story follows the infamous Newsweek magazine cover in May 2012 and Obama’s famous girly-man pitch at the opening of the baseball season a few years back. But it also follows some very dark accusations from a homosexual drug dealer from Chicago named Larry Sinclair who revealed that he had a sexual relationship with him while Obama was in the Illinois legislature. Oh, and then there was the murder of the homosexual choir director, Donald Young, at Obama’s Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago shortly before Obama started his presidential campaign and the allegations about the gay men’s bath house, and so on and so on. It all just suggests that some people were cleaning up some unsavory details to make their candidate look squeaky clean. And when you think about what details they didn’t clean up it makes the mess left behind look even more dirty. But now that Obama doesn’t have to worry about his next election he has no reasons to avoid the truth.
An NBA player coming out of the closet as gay. Wait, there’s more:
A groundbreaking pronouncement from NBA veteran Jason Collins — “I’m gay” — reverberated Monday through Washington, generating accolades from lawmakers on Twitter and a supportive phone call from President Barack Obama.
Hours after Collins disclosed his sexuality in an online article, Obama reached out by phone, expressing his support and telling Collins he was impressed by his courage, the White House said.
Collins, 34, becomes the first active player in one of four major U.S. professional sports leagues to come out as gay. He has played for six teams in 12 seasons, including this past season with the Washington Wizards, and is now a free agent.
I wrote about the darker side of the story here:
Monday, May 14, 2012
Fox News reported a story this morning about next week’s issue of Newsweek magazine. By some accidental quirk did Newsweek let the cat out of the bag when they called Barack Hussein Obama, ‘The First Gay President’? Fox News ran their story with this headline:
WASHINGTON – Following President Barack Obama’s public announcement backing gay marriage last week, Newsweek magazine has featured him on its front cover with the headline, “The First Gay President.
What else can one say after seeing our Great Leader throw out the opening pitch of the baseball season and tossing the ball like a girl? The cover story in Newsweek was all about the recent announcement by Barack Hussein Obama coming out in favor of same sex marriage. But there may be another side to the story. A much darker side that some people went to great lengths to cover up. Newsweek’s slip of the lip may help to re-invigorate some interest in those old stories from Chicago that involved gay sex, cocaine and murder. There were lots of rumors in Chicago from the 1990’s time period about a young Illinois politician named Barack Hussein Obama having very close contacts with certain homosexuals and drug dealers. And some unsavory attempts to cover it up.
Maybe we need to reexamine the accusations of one Larry Sinclair, from Chicago. You probably don’t remember him, he was buried by the news media. Read these two excerpts, below, from a 2009 story posted on Canada Free Press:
– Joy Tiz Tuesday, August 4, 2009
Sinclair asserts that he met Obama twice in 1999. Their rendezvous was orchestrated by limo driver, Jagir Multani. Sinclair avers that Multani may have been in the United States illegally. Sinclair alleges that Obama smoked crack cocaine and directed Sinclair to administer a Lewinsky—which Sinclair obliged. According to Sinclair, the following day Obama materialized at Sinclair’s hotel to solicit supplementary Lewinskyization. That was the entirety of their affair, per Sinclair. Expecting to be serviced with no impulse to reciprocate is certainly consistent with Obama’s consummate narcissism.
If Obama habitually enjoyed these sorts of trysts, we would presume others witnesses would surface. To date, no one else has gone public with comparable reports. Maybe the late Donald Young, choir director at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago could have confirmed that Obama didn’t indulge in this type of conduct. Sadly, Young was murdered on December 23, 2007.
The forty-seven-year old choirmaster had attended Obama’s church since the age of twelve.
Or even this one, just a book review, posted on Prison Planet. It has a few more details.
OBAMA AND THE LARRY SINCLAIR AFFAIR
Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder?
Breaks Top 10 in Amazon Category
“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”
July 18, 2009
By John Medlin “StayAlive” (USA)
[…]Sinclair’s book would discuss his homosexual and cocaine sharing experiences with then Illinois State Senator Barack Obama in November 1999 and the events that followed after Sinclair’s public disclosure of these events on YouTube in January 2008.
I had been following Sinclair’s story on the Internet since February 2008. Having been a Press Officer in the US Army and an Internal Auditor, I was familiar with what can happen when the media turns against you and more importantly the patterns of people who tell the truth and those who don’t. What impressed me most over the following nine months was Sinclair’s story stayed the same, that on multiple occasions efforts were made to silence him on the Internet, and yet he persisted in the face of threats of murder to him and harm to members of his own family.
Yesterday, 14 July 2009, I received copy Number 81 of Sinclair’s book, “Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder?”
This books reeks of the truth and the words and style of Larry Sinclair. It is not “ghost-written”. It is not a literary masterpiece and there are several typographical and grammatical mistakes. Most importantly it tells the true story of a man committed to exposing the truth. Sinclair pulls no punches and does not hide behind any equivocations about his past or his many flaws. He does provide very specific details about the dangerous journey he has taken to get the truth published, to speak truth to power. While parts of the book were previously published on his websites, he adds much more detail about what happened at the Democratic National Committee meeting in May 2008, the storm trooper tactics by the DC Metro Police after his appearance at the National Press Club in June 2008, the false charges initiated by Joe Biden’s son, Attorney General Beau Biden in Delaware, the continued failure of the Chicago Police to investigate the murder of Donald Young in December 2007, the openly gay choir master of Obama’s Trinity United Church of Christ, and of course the very specific details about President Obama’s private parts.
It is shameful that the various mainstream media have refused to follow up on Sinclair’s story, to challenge him on the facts, to challenge Joe and Beau Biden and the DC Metro Police on their false charges and imprisonment of Larry Sinclair in June 2008. Just imagine if they and the powerful interests they represent can do this to relatively unknown Larry Sinclair, what can they do to you?
“Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder?” is a book worth reading for all those who seek the truth, an example of what a little, flawed man with incredible courage and persistence can achieve in speaking truth to power. Job well done.
“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”
Obama and Emanuel: Members of same gay bath house in Chicago
President Obama and his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel are lifetime members of the same gay bath house in uptown Chicago, according to informed sources in Chicago’s gay community, as well as veteran political sources in the city.
The bath house, Man’s Country, caters to older white men and it has been in business for some 30 years and is known as one of uptown Chicago’s “grand old bathhouses.” WMR was told by sources who are familiar with the bath house that it provides one-year “lifetime” memberships to paying customers and that the club’s computerized files and pre-computer paper files, include membership information for both Obama and Emanuel. The data is as anonymized as possible for confidentiality purposes. However, sources close to “Man’s Country” believe the U.S. Secret Service has purged the computer and filing cabinet files of the membership data on Obama and Emanuel.
Members of Man’s Country are also issued club identification cards. WMR learned that Obama and Emanuel possessed the ID cards, which were required for entry.
Obama began frequenting Man’s Country in the mid-1990s, during the time he transitioned from a lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School to his election as an Illinois State Senator in 1996. Emanuel, reportedly joined Man’s Country after he left the Clinton White Hosue and moved back to Chicago in 1998, joining the investment firm of Wasserstein Perella and maintaining his membership during his 2002 campaign for the U.S. 5th District House seat vacated by Rod Blagojevich, who was elected governor.
Man’s Country appears to be a “one stop shopping” center for gay men. The club’s website advertises steam rooms, “fantasy rooms,” bed rooms, male strippers, adult movies, and lockers.
However, Man’s Country was not the only location for Obama’s predatory gay sex activities. The Chicago gay community is aware that Obama often made contacts with younger men at his famous “pick-up basketball” games. It was at these “pick up” matches where Obama first met Emanuel and a young Democratic campaign worker and senior bank vice president named Alexi Giannoulias. Currently running for Obama’s old U.S. Senate seat now occupied by Roland Burris, Giannoulias successfully ran for Illinois Treasurer in 2006 after being drafted for the run by Chicago’s Democratic machine.
When you have a person like Barack Hussein Obama, who habitually hides his entire background, you cannot help but think there is some sinister reason behind it. We now know that Barry Soetoro//aka//Barack Hussein Obama publicly displayed on national television a forged Birth Certificate in April 2011. We now know he had a fake Selective Service Registration Card and has a Social Security Number previously issued in Connecticut to another person. We also know Obama was registered in school in Indonesia as a Muslim yet he claims he is a Christian for no other reason that he attended the radical racist Trinity United Church of Christ run by the equally racist, anti-American, Rev. Jeremiah Wright. And now there is even someone who suspects that Barack Hussein Obama was the son of a black Communist named Frank Marshall Davis and not Keyan-born Barack Obama. Sr., whose name appears on Barry’s fake birth certificate. As WND.com reported last month about a full-length documentary film scheduled for release in July titled: “Dreams from My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception,” made by Joel Gilbert. Read the “WND EXCLUSIVE: Film: President’s father not Barack Obama 2 years of research, rare photos support compelling case Published: 04/25/2012 at 8:51 PM”
Remember that problem that Joe Biden has with not being able to control what comes out of his mouth? Maybe it is an infectious disease and it’s very possible that Newsweek may have caught it.

Other than two interviews, I have not written a column on the active continuing decline of all liberty in the USA since 12 March. The reason is that it is simultaneously depressing and enraging to view the intense damage that those elected to high office in my country are doing to both the country and its people. Too many of those who have benefited the most from the United States of America’s Republic are now openly and actively participating in its destruction.
When a country’s leaders are hell-bent on destroying said country, nothing at all–save a real revolution brought on by the people–will ever save it. In fact, just the opposite will be proposed and passed into law with the government-paid talking heads redefining words and dutifully telling the populations that freedom is slavery, wrong actions are really right and good is bad. Note: The creation of a relatively insane and befuddled population is part and parcel towards overthrowing a nation. As one example, the ostensible “leaders” in and of Washington State have decided to rewrite language to remove any mention of “man” or “men” from multiple words (i.e. penmanship is now handwriting, fireman is now fire person, fisherman is now simply fisher etc.). Last year, this same State opted to remove “bride and groom” and “man and woman” from marriage certificates and officially begin its war against human genders. These words were racist or homophobic–or something–don’tcha’ know?
I have been watching my country be assaulted over and over again, with few to none-in-office coming to her rescue. I have observed that the United States of America (no longer united and the federal government is now working to rid itself of the States…altogether) is now largely being run by the Obama shadow government of Muslim Brotherhood members, unelected ObamaCzars (one of whom–Mark Lloyd–has even championed using the media to affect genocide of ones political enemies) and a no longer for-the-people US Congress.
Taking on the tone of the surreal, recent “massacres“–many aspects of which strongly appear to have been staged by the ObamaGov and Marxist Hollywood for maximum effect toward assisting them in establishing a US police state–from Aurora, CO through Sandy Hook to the latest Boston Marathon bombings are continuing to develop into what appear to be “staged events” status. More and more salient information (much via You Tube…see references below) is coming to the forefront, as the hands of the ObamaGov seem to be deeply entrenched in these perceptible manipulations against the American people with one agenda only–that of complete control of the population by the ObamaGov and world elites via a police state. Note: We already saw the beginnings of said police state with the forcible entry by federally militarized police into private homes in Massachusetts after the recent “Boston Marathon bombings.”
Interestingly, some on the Left are finally “getting it” and even being vocal about it. Resident-leftist Bill Maher recently said of the way in which the ’search’ for the Boston Marathon bombers was conducted “This country is becoming a police state, and it is very troubling to me” and late-night ABC host Jimmy Kimmel said “I think we are in a police state. We have cameras and our phones are being tracked and our cars are being tracked. … We must want this; this must be something we want.” In September 2009, I saw and reported that virtually gun-free Massachusetts had been chosen as a test case for martial law when I wrote my column “Is MA Storm Trooper bill a Test Case for Obama Takeover?”
Unless we actually begin to fight for America it will soon be (if it isn’t already) irrevocably lost to us and all other countries. The nation that was begun by my and others’ ancestors as the hope of the Earth “under God” has now almost been reduced to rubble. It has been perverted in so many ways that it is impossible to list all of them here. However, one thing remains constant. If we want our country back we must rise up against what is happening now. Unfortunately, it appears there are not nearly enough of us left who are willing to get off of our collective “arses” and stand up against oppression and our oppressors. If that is the case…we die.
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”
— Hosea 4:6
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places”
— Ephesians 6:12

Elizabeth Warren, Socialist Part 1 here.
U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren’s connection to the U.S. left runs deep. She is particularly close to one of the US’ most effective socialist organizations, Progressive Democrats of America.
Founded in 2004, PDA operates as an activist network inside the Democratic Party.
It has been described as the political arm of the socialist-dominated Congressional Progressive Caucus and works closely with that body. PDA uses an Inside-Outside strategy enabling non-Democratic Party members to influence party policy.
According to PDA’s website:
Progressive Democrats of America was founded in 2004 to transform the Democratic Party and our country.
As a grassroots PAC operating inside the Democratic Party, and outside in movements for peace and justice, PDA played a key role in the stunning electoral victory of November 2006. Our inside/outside strategy is guided by the belief that a lasting majority will require a revitalized Democratic Party built on firm progressive principles.
We work with the Congressional Progressive Caucus to support and bring forward progressive legislation on the core issues identified by our PDA chapters.
PDA is effectively a front for the US’ largest Marxist organization, Democratic Socialists of America, and for the far left Institute for Policy Studies – probably the most destructive non-profit in the country.
PDA’s Advisory Board includes three known DSAers Bill Fletcher, Jr., Michael Lighty and retired Chicago doctor, Quentin Young – once Barack Obama‘s political mentor and personal physician. Many other board members, such as Steve Cobble, Andy Shallal, Medea Benjamin, Tom Hayden, Jim Hightower and Jodie Evans have deep ties to IPS.
In the 2012 election cycle, PDA concentrated most of its resources into just 14 contests – Congressional races and one for the U.S. Senate – Elizabeth Warren for Massachusetts.
PDA helped fund Warren, but most of their resources went into mobilizing troops on the ground – door knockers, phone bankers… “Get Out The Vote” efforts.
Warren was fully cooperative with PDA’s efforts. She knew they were heavily involved in her campaign and she made the socialists welcome.
Warren certainly wasn’t averse to photo ops with PDA National Director Tim Carpenter, a one time leader of Orange County Democratic Socialists of America. Like this one taken at an event in Western Massachusetts:
Or this one, used in a last minute “Get Out The Vote” plea on Massachusetts PDA’s Facebook page:
PDAers worked hard for Liz warren, as did the Registered Nurses of National Nurses United, a labor union allied to the Progressive Democrats.
Wrote Michael Lighty, DSAer, Director of Public Policy for NNU and PDA Advisory Board Member:
The RNs of NNU have found a natural alliance with PDA, who are never slow in the fight against austerity to win prosperity for all. RNs and PDA activists joined in campaigns across the country for insurgent progressives like Elizabeth Warren, now Senator-elect from Massachusetts…
PDA enjoyed a very successful 2012. While others were focusing on the Presidential contest, PDA focused on getting more socialists into Congress and the Senate.
In 2012, PDA hit its stride electorally, as well as helping its National Board Members, Congress members John Conyers (D-MI), Donna Edwards (D-MD), Keith Ellison (D-MN), Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), James McGovern (D-MA) and Barbara Lee (D-CA) sweep to victory.
Other PDA-endorsed winners included Congress members Mark Pocan (D-WI), Alan Grayson (D-FL) and Senator Elizabeth Warren. PDA generated 1000s of “Get Out The Vote” calls for the above candidates, as well as for newly-elected Ami Bera (D-CA).
But PDA didn’t do all that work without expectation of making some influential friendships.
According to a New Year 2013 press release from Progressive Democrats of America:
Progressive Democrats of America accomplished a lot in 2012–thanks to your help and support. Together, we helped defeat Tea Party extremists and helped elect strong progressives to Congress. We educated members of Congress every month in our home districts, and in the halls of Congress in Washington, DC. Now, PDA is starting 2013 in a big way!
In just a few days, on January 3rd, our team will be on Capitol Hill as special guests of our newly elected and re-elected progressive candidates including our board members our friends Representatives Alan Grayson, Dr. Ami Bera, and Mark Pocan; as well as newly-elected Senators Tammy Baldwin and Elizabeth Warren.
Progressive Democrats of America socialists have every reason to believe that their investment in Elizabeth Warren will provide a handsome return.

Every year the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, or nerd prom as it has been dubbed, is held in Washington D.C. where the President is supposed to display his entertaining side opposite a major comedian who is asked to more or less host and either make or break his or her career. Over the weekend for 2013 it was Conan O’Brian, who attacked CNN, Fox News, the Washington Hilton and Mitt Romney but pretty much soft-balled the President, who broke tradition and chose to enter to rap music instead of the traditional “Hail to the Chief”… too stuffy for our too hip president and his Hollywood pals. In fact the Correspondents’ Dinner has gone so Hollywood that Tom Brokaw (and others) said ‘no thanks’ to attending this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. “That dinner, as it has been constituted for the past several years, is saying, ‘We’re Versailles. The rest of you eat cake.’, said Brokaw.
In reviewing the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Dinner I wrote Alinsky Alive and Well in the White House. And although a bit more subdued this year, the Obama format followed the Alinsky primer, Rules for Radicals. President Obama used Alinsky’s Tactic #5 to perfection: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”
In 2012 the AP wrote:
It’s not often that we get to see the most powerful man in the world tell jokes about eating dogs, craving cigarettes and imposing his rumored “radical socialist agenda” on the country. And yet, last night in Washington, D.C., we were treated to just that…
This year the most poignant example was Obama’s comment: “I’m Not The Strapping Young Muslim Socialist I Used To Be!”
“Sniff! Our Marxist Islamist is getting old…” 😉 TMH, the NoisyRoom
President Barack Obama poked fun at the media, especially Fox News; the History Channel; his critics: including Congress, Sheldon Adelson, Rush Limbaugh, Sen.Mitch McConnell, Rep. Michele Bachmann… and himself using the Alinsky model
Some Obama highlights:
“I know Republicans are still sorting out what happened in 2012, but one thing they all agree on is they need to do a better job reaching out to minorities,” Obama said.
“And look, call me self-centered, but I can think of one minority they could start with. Hello? Think of me as a trial run, you know?” he said.
“These days, I look in the mirror and I have to admit, I’m not the strapping young Muslim socialist that I used to be,” Obama said. “Time passes. You get a little gray.”
“I’m also hard at work on plans for the Obama Library, and some have suggested that we put it in my birthplace, but I’d rather keep it in the United States,” he said.
“Did anybody not see that joke coming?” (Show of hands.) “Only Gallup? Maybe Dick Morris?”
“One senator who has reached across the aisle recently is Marco Rubio, but I don’t know about 2016. I mean, the guy has not even finished a single term in the Senate and he thinks he’s ready to be president,” Obama joked. “Kids these days.”
“I know CNN has taken some knocks lately, but the fact is I admire their commitment to cover all sides of a story, just in case one of them happens to be accurate.”
“Some of my former advisors have switched over to the dark side. For example, David Axelrod now works for MSNBC, which is a nice change of pace since MSNBC used to work for David Axelrod.”
“The History Channel is not here. I guess they were embarrassed about the whole Obama-is-a-devil thing. Of course, that never kept Fox News from showing up. They actually thought the comparison was not fair — to Satan. “
“I still make rookie mistakes. Like, I’m out in California, we’re at a fundraiser, we’re having a nice time. I happen to mention that Kamala Harris is the best-looking attorney general in the country. As you might imagine, I got trouble when I got back home. Who knew Eric Holder was so sensitive?”
“Some things are beyond my control. For example, this whole controversy about Jaz-Z going to Cuba — it’s unbelievable. I’ve got 99 problems and now Jay-Z is one.That’s another rap reference, Bill. I’ll let you know.”
“I’m taking my charm offensive on the road – a Texas barbeque with Ted Cruz, a Kentucky bluegrass concert with Rand Paul, and a book-burning with Michele Bachmann.”
“Groucho Marx once said — and, Senator Cruz, that’s Groucho Marx, not Karl. That’s the other guy. Groucho Marx once told an audience, “Before I speak, I have something important to say.”
One of the funnier more light-hearted moments of Obama’s routine came near the beginning of his turn at the podium. Mr. Obama remarked that the presidency can take its toll on anyone, and he realizes he’ll need a burst of energy and some new approaches to energize his second term. He and his aides have talked about that, he said.
“We were willing to try anything. So we borrowed one of Michelle’s tricks,” said Obama.
Conan O’Brien Blasted Drudge, Bush, Romney, CNN, the NRA And Chris Matthews at the Correspondents Dinner but tip-toed around the Pres.
My take has not changed and is still that Obama played it cool and delivered a perfect Saul Alinsky Speech. If you are concerned about America and want to help turn things around or if you are politically unaware or uninvolved and you want to get a better handle of what is going on, if you haven’t already, you need to read Saul Alinsky’s: Rules for Radicals plus understand the Cloward and Piven strategy; both major parts of Obama’s playbook. Mix in a little George Soros string pulling and you are headed in the right direction. Then do a little reading and digging into who BHO’s family and friends are and who he is connected to and everything will come into focus!
I think Alinsky would have been proud!
“Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.” – Letter from L. DAVID ALINSKY, son of Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky
Obama helped fund ‘Alinsky Academy’: “The Woods Fund, a nonprofit on which Obama served as paid director from 1999 to December 2002, provided startup funding and later capital to the Midwest Academy…. Obama sat on the Woods Fund board alongside William Ayers, founder of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization…. ‘Midwest describes itself as ‘one of the nation’s oldest and best-known schools for community organizations, citizen organizations and individuals committed to progressive social change.’… Midwest teaches Alinsky tactics of community organizing.”
Hillary, Obama and the Cult of Alinsky: “True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within. Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties…. Many leftists view Hillary as a sell-out because she claims to hold moderate views on some issues. However, Hillary is simply following Alinsky’s counsel to do and say whatever it takes to gain power.
“Obama is also an Alinskyite…. Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method. In 1985 he began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, working for an Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project…. Camouflage is key to Alinsky-style organizing.
While trying to build coalitions of black churches in Chicago, Obama caught flak for not attending church himself. He became an instant churchgoer.” (By Richard Poe, 11-27-07)
The Alinsky Tactics (and of course they can be combined) from the Progressive Bible Rules for Radicals:
“Tactics are those conscious deliberate acts by which human beings live with each other and deal with the world around them. … Here our concern is with the tactic of taking; how the Have-Nots can take power away from the Haves.” p.126
Always remember the first rule of power tactics (pages 127-134):
1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”
2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people. When an action or tactic is outside the experience of the people, the result is confusion, fear and retreat…. [and] the collapse of communication.
3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)
4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”
5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”
6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”
7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Man can sustain militant interest in any issue for only a limited time….”
8. “Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.”
9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
10. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.”
11. “If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside… every positive has its negative.”
12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”
13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and ‘frozen.’…
I think Alinsky would have been proud of Obama’s Correspondence Dinner speech… of his whole presidency.
Using Alinsky’s Tactic #5 to perfection “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon: It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage”, President Obama took everything that his opponents: the right in general, patriots, the GOP, people paying attention, etc. are fighting, bringing to the forefront and trying to educate the American people on and ridiculed them by ridiculing each point one by one through making it a joke… thereby making it look silly to the low and uninformed that anyone would question something that was so trivial that the President himself would make fun of.
In 2012 Obama belittled the topics of eligibility; the hot mic incident where he essentially told the Russians to wait until he was re-elected and would have unbridled power to do what he wants; made light of eating dogs; threw in his digs at Romney for being rich and an elitist, at Gingrich for losing the GOP Primary and Hillary for drinking and partying in Cartagena; high-fived all his Hollywood celebrity friends; and basically told us to hang onto our hats for a radical second term… including reinstating ObamaCare if it was struck down and that it would be raining men during his next term (interpreted by most in the know as paratroopers and other military, including UN troops, on American soil).
In 2013 Obama hit the topics of his purported Muslim faith, missing college transcripts, and questionable birth certificate from several angles as well as his socialistic agenda and dislike for the conservative media and conservatives in Congress. He also made fun of the issue of his friends Jay-Z and wife Beyoncé traveling to Cuba on a special visa, when Americans have been prohibited from going there for decades, as well as his campaign to make the results of Sequestration as painful for the public as possible while blaming it on the Republicans using a reference to the White House Easter Egg roll.
Obama is the master… he told us in 2008 and wrote in his books (Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance and The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream (Vintage) (as well as in books about him) all that he was planning to do but most of America wasn’t listening and like with Hitler (in Mein Kampf (German Edition)… nobody read his books; now several like Dreams from My Father (try to borrow an vintage copy to read)have been edited and re-written. But again, Barack Hussein Obama’s weekend comedy routine at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was generally only funny to those who have not been paying attention or who have continued to drink the Kool-Aid.
