the law temporarily imposed upon an area by state or national military forces when civil authority has broken down or during wartime military operations.
the law imposed upon a defeated country or occupied territory by the military forces of the occupying power.
We very well may be on the verge of martial law, but, currently, we are not under martial law.
Does Sheila Jackson-Lee know something we do not know?
Chris Matthews might not be suffering from tingling legs anymore, but it looks like he’s taken to time travel – maybe he read Kurt Vonnegut too many times? Who knows? No matter what, this is priceless!
Of course, the whole time-travelling back to the War of Northern Aggression isn’t new. Sheila Jackson Lee apparently did a little trip in the liberal time machine as well:
Only one question – Did someone legalize mind-altering drugs in Washington?
As I read stories and opinions about the death of Trayvon Martin I find myself wondering how so much can go so wrong in America, the land of the free and the home of the brave. I can find enough fault on both sides of this tragedy to show the racial hatred being spewed by the usual race baiting hate mongers in the black community to be not only unnecessary but down right evil.
In the first place, George Zimmerman was told by the police that he didn’t need to follow Martin, just give them a description and be available for officers when they got there. I understand Zimmerman’s concern. When help is needed in seconds the police are often minutes, sometimes many minutes, away. Zimmerman stated he was afraid this unknown person would just disappear and the police would find nothing, take a report, and go back to what they had been doing. This happens all too often, especially in cities where police are often overwhelmed with work to do. I am not bashing police here, just making what I believe to be a fair observation. If Zimmerman had done as asked Trayvon Martin would be alive today.
On the other side of this coin are Trayvon Martin’s bad decisions. I imagined myself in this situation and asked myself, “What would I do?” if faced with being followed by an unknown person with unknown intentions. My first thought was not “to hide around the corner of a building and attack the follower when he rounded the corner”. My first thought was to get to where I was going as fast as possible. If I was not able to accomplish that before being overtaken the next choice is to find a suitable place to hide and dial 911 for help. Under no circumstances would I go on the offensive when an unknown person, who could be armed, was following me and I had no idea why. Martin’s actions were ill-advised at best, and stupid at the worst. Martin had a cell phone. Why wasn’t he calling 911 to report he was being followed by a possible assailant instead of talking to his girlfriend?
The combination of bad decisions by both of these men resulted in an unnecessary death. I understand the hurt of the parents; I know the pain of losing a son too early in life. This was a totally senseless situation brought on by bad decisions on both sides of the coin. Enough said about this, now on to the larger tragedy here.
As soon as reports of this tragedy came out, Al Sharpton, smelling a profit, crawled out from under his rock to do his usual stirring up of racial hatred before knowing any facts in the incident. George Zimmerman sounds like as white a name as I have ever heard but is he? Well, partly. It seems, now that we have more information, that he is a multi-racial Hispanic. But this information doesn’t really matter to me, as it doesn’t matter to the race baiters. The “it doesn’t matter”, however, comes for different reasons.
Race isn’t an issue to those of us who see other Americans as Americans instead of seeing race as does Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Spike Lee, the Black Panthers, and other race baiting hate mongers. We now have the Black Panthers offering a $1 million reward for Zimmerman’s head. Isn’t solicitation to commit murder a crime in America? Spike Lee has tweeted Zimmerman’s address. If Zimmerman is assaulted will Eric Holder’s “Justice Department” charge the Black Panthers and Lee as an accomplice or accessory to an assault or murder? Not likely!!!
I wonder where all of these “concerned citizens” were last week when a 90 year old white man and his 85 year old white wife were attacked in their home in Tulsa, Oklahoma by a young black man and unknown accomplices. The woman (again, 85 years old) was raped and beaten to death. The man is clinging to life in ICU at last reports. Where are the $1 million dollar offers from the Black Panthers? Where is Al Sharpton and his megaphone? Where is Jesse Jackson to offer financial help to the family of this couple as he did in the Duke Lacrosse case? Where is Spike Lee to tweet this animal’s home address for the angry mobs to go kill him? Where is Barack Obama and his condemnation of black violence against whites? Remember Eric Holder saying black on white violence would not be investigated by the same “Justice Department” who is jumping through hoops to convict Zimmerman before the sun rises tomorrow?
Last week I read a story from Chicago about a 6 year old boy killed as a result of gang violence, and a 1 year old clinging to life by a thread from the same shooting. This was black gang members trying to kill a rival, but killing babies instead. Where are the Black Panthers? Where is Al Sharpton? Where is Jesse Jackson? Where is the $1 million reward for the heads of those who hurt these innocent children in an indiscriminate shooting? Where is Spike Lee and his Twitter account when needed?
Several years ago we had the Tawana Brawley incident. She reported that white men raped her, smeared feces on her, and repeatedly called her “nigger”. After Al Sharpie crawled out from under his rock to drum up money for himself he found out it was all a lie. Did he apologize? Did he give the money back? No, he just stirred up unnecessary racial hatred, raked in his millions, and crawled back under his rock until the next opportunity arose.
Remember the Duke Lacrosse case a few years ago? A black prostitute claimed she was raped, beaten, and called “nigger” by white members of the Duke Lacrosse team. Along came Jesse and Al to the rescue. As it turned out, after the flames of racial hatred had been fanned to a roar, the entire story was found to be a huge lie. Even the District Attorney in the case did everything he could to profit politically, from a case he knew was a lie. Once again, Jesse and Al raked in their millions and crawled back under their rocks to await the next incident they could use to fan racial hatred and make a few million dollars for themselves.
And once again Barack Obama, the Usurper in Chief, has jumped into the fray to stir up racial hatred and try to gain some votes without knowing the facts. Remember the famous “beer summit” that resulted when the cop wanted to know why the college professor, who was reported by neighbors to be breaking into a house, was there? It turned out the house belonged to the professor and he had lost his key or left it somewhere. All the policeman did was his job, but he was turned into a monster by the same race baiting hate mongers we have seen so many times before. What if that had been a mugger breaking into the house of an elderly woman with no protection other than that policeman? Oh well, the white guy has to be wrong regardless of the facts. And the racism is where?
Obama was to be the first “post-racial” president, but alas, that hasn’t happened. Racial polarization is worse than it has been since the 1960’s. White people voted in droves for a black man, or half black, to prove they weren’t racists. Instead of pointing out the fact that white voters seem to be over racism he makes racial strife the keynote part of his agenda. Instead of taking the moral high ground and urging people to look at this as a tragedy that resulted from a set of preventable circumstances on both sides, he jumps in with both feet to help Al Sharpie & Company fan the flames of racial hatred. Obama has shown himself to be as racist and as much of a hate monger as the “Justice Brothers”.
All of these men call me a racist and a hate monger because I am white and believe in finding the facts first. You were able to see my view on this at the beginning of this article. What is the difference between my approach and that of the blacks who are raising so much hell about this Florida shooting? Am I or other white people out in the media calling for riots over the attack, rape, and murder of that elderly white woman by a young black man in Oklahoma? No, of course not. That would be an asinine and wrong stand to take. If I offered $1 million for his head would that be racist?
Racism is alive and well in America but it isn’t the whites who are stoking the fires of racism, or even committing racist acts. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee, Spike Lee, Louis Farrakhan and other liberals can’t open their mouths without fanning the fires of racism, and doing it to make a profit for themselves. They don’t care about the black community. These people only care about the money they make off of racial hatred.
The fact that Barack Obama does the same thing on a regular basis (African-Americans for Obama campaign ads, for instance) is not only an act of racism against We the People, it is detrimental to our nation. It is even more detrimental to members of the black community. Blacks are being used by profiteers. This kind of rhetoric is not conducive to a harmonious future in America. The divide and conquer tactics of these people are intended to enslave all ethnic groups, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, etc. equally.
The only way to overcome the tactics of division are for We the People to unite in rejecting those who divide us. God made all of us and all of us need to come together against the strife spread by the agents of Satan. We can come together, One Nation Under God, or we will live as one nation under tyrants. The choice is ours. As for me and my house, we choose One Nation Under God. My heart goes out to both families in this tragedy. Let’s not waste our time ripping each other apart for no good reason. Let’s unite, under GOD, against those who use tragedies like this one for profit and to divide a nation unnecessarily.
I submit this in the name of the Most holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.
We are finding the anointed one, Barak Obama, gaining confidence in his ability to circumvent the Constitution and Congress to implement any rule he desires. In the last week he has gone on the campaign trail, at taxpayer expense of course, to tell We the People that if Congress is reticent in its willingness to implement the changes he wants that he will do it by executive order, in spite of what the Constitution says. He first suggested he would bypass Congress to implement new home loan guarantees backed by Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, at the expense of We the People of course, and now has floated the idea that he will minimize payment requirements or forgive student loans by executive order. Of course, when you get to the meat of the student loan idea it turns out to be a lie to deceive them. Obama wants to bypass Congress to get the support of these student loan people but not really help them when the rubber meets the road.
I find it alarming that Obama sees himself as the only arbiter of law in the United States, and that he believes he can totally bypass Congress and implement anything he wants to implement. Does anyone besides me see any similarities to despots around the world, past and present? Obama’s own party has refused to consider his “jobs bill”, and they aren’t likely to jump into the middle of this rerun of the housing problem this close to an election. I believe that Democrats in Congress, or at least most of them, see the handwriting on the wall and fear another shellacking like 2010 coming. Have you noticed there are no sponsors of this “jobs bill” in either house of Congress, not even from Democrats? If the Republicans, who only have 47 votes in the Senate, are willing to vote on Obama’s “jobs bill” why doesn’t Harry Reid bring it to the floor for that vote? Could it be that Reid doesn’t want to put Democrats on the spot, knowing that this tax hike disguised as a “jobs bill” is a disaster waiting to happen?
I find it interesting that the same people who called George W. Bush a fascist support the government funding of banks, stock brokerage houses, and automobile companies. When the government bailed out the automobile companies the unions received the bulk of the money. Taxpayers and secured bondholders, those first in line by law, got the shaft. When the government bailed out the banks and brokerages much of the money went to branches or subsidiaries outside the country, and what stayed in the country went to those in charge of the companies in the form of huge bonuses, financed by We the people. Now the billions of taxpayer money that have been sunk into the phony “green energy” companies go to shareholders, people like George Kaiser, a billionaire and bundler for Barak Obama. Kaiser says he never spoke to anyone in the Obama administration about Solyndra, and it probably can’t be proven whether he did or did not have those conversations, but it certainly doesn’t pass the smell test with this taxpayer. Since the Solyndra scandal surfaced we find cases of other companies in the same situation and our tax money supporting those who have questionable ties to government officials. Is this a case of crony capitalism helping with the process of destroying capitalism?
We face a danger not previously seen in my lifetime and too many people either can’t or won’t see what is going on. The very people in the Democrat Party who decried the TEA Party, i.e. Barak Obama and Nancy Pelosi, as Nazi’s and violent angry mobs see the Wall Street protestors as patriots, true American heroes standing up for their “rights”. It is truly amazing to me to see the contrast between the TEA Party rallies and this mob of morons. When you look at the litter, public sexual activity, public nudity, open drug trafficking and use, defecating on police cars in the Wall Street protests, and don’t get me started on the interviews with the media, I find the contrast to the TEA Party rallies to be staggering.
The Wall Street nuts are a problem but not our main problem. Those people are only the pawns, the “useful idiots”, of those who seek to enslave all of us, including those protesting. I wonder why they aren’t in Washington protesting against the graft and corruption that is so apparent that they should be able to see it easily and clearly.
Governor Beverly Perdue of North Carolina, Jesse Jackson Jr., Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee, and their ilk are also a part of our problem. And how about the Congressman from Georgia, Hank Johnson, who is afraid Guam will “tip over and capsize” if we put too many Marines on it?
The people who have called for Obama to suspend elections, suspend the Constitution, and just “do what he needs to do” are part of the problem. These people advocate the idea of throwing our system of government away to suit their Marxist ideology, with them in control of course.
Another part of the problem is the deafening silence from Republicans. Obama threatens to bypass Congress, taking actions that are clearly outside his grounds according to the Constitution of the United States of America and they say little or nothing. Why are they silent? Are they afraid of being called racists or are they willing accomplices to his tyranny? Anyone see Venezuela coming our way?
Governing does not include passing out edicts to get things done. It seems to me we had a disagreement with King George III about edicts and became a free and autonomous country as a result. The freedom of the United States of America was won, and has been sustained, at a terrible cost in lives and property but it was won because We the People decided freedom was worth fighting for.
Today we face the same kind of tyranny. We find ourselves living at the whim of bureaucrats who make rules without any regard to the law of the land. If they can’t get what they want by legislation they get it by fiat regulation and Obama ignores court decisions that don’t suit him, as in the Gulf of Mexico drilling issue. We have politicians who pass legislation without reading the content and then tell us that they are doing this “for our own good” and that we “don’t know how to best live our lives”.
I have recently discovered that the federal government is going to take complete control of ALL radio and television signals for 3 minutes on November 9, 2011 to test the new National Emergency Alert System. As an older citizen I am familiar with these tests as they have been going on for many years. The difference is that instead of testing at the local level as has been done in the past this one is going to be a national test, controlled by federal government officials, with government agencies taking control of every signal emitted throughout the nation. When the system was started the federal government notified state and local governments of an issue and they sent out the emergency notifications. Now we have FEMA, Department of Homeland Security (what a misnomer), and other federal agencies in direct control of our over-the-air communications.
Is this an answer to the calls by Democrats for the suspension of the Constitution, suspension of Congress, and hints of the implementation of martial law? Is this more preparation for use of the FEMA camps that have been built across the nation? Add this to the attempt by Joe Leiberman and Susan Collins to give Obama authority to seize control of the internet on a whim (S. 3480) and you have a cocktail for disaster for We the People and the freedom we have known for generations, a freedom paid for in blood and death by generations of our predecessors.
The communistic style of government in America has been growing for many years while We the People slept. They seem to think they now have within their grasp the final step needed to take over our nation and install the tyrannical government they have been working towards. Taken one at a time these things are frightening but when I put them together I find a conspiratorial plan to subvert our way of life, our form of government, and replace it with an oligarchy such as in Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and other despotic kingdoms.
We find ourselves at a crossroads. Do we continue down the left fork to tyranny, despotism, and slavery, or do we move over to the right fork and fight for freedom once again? Obama, his 47 Czars, Democrats, and all too many Republicans are on a path to install the oligarchy they desire. They believe they can do so without any real protest from We the People.
Will you sit idly by until you have no choice but to accept the globalist elites who desire to control every aspect of your life? If you don’t have a job now you will when America is a dictatorship. Of course it won’t be a good paying job, probably not a paying job at all, and you won’t have your own house, your own car, a bank account or the freedom to come and go as you wish.
I have seen the results of tyranny in many places around the world. A nation can go from wealthy to poor, from freedom to slavery in a very short time once tyrants gain control. We are not far from that point and when Barak Obama and his minions gain the level of control they want it is over for all of We the People, not just the rich. As a matter of fact, if you look around, the rich are the ones who will come out good because they have the money to buy their freedom, I don’t.
It is past time to stand up and be counted. We can no longer afford to “hope” for “change” in a nation that is teetering on the edge of tyranny. Acceptance of a mediocre candidate to oppose Obama is not enough to insure the freedom of future generations.
