All In the name of terrorism

Steve Watson

Monday, July 27, 2009

A huge simulation coordinated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has begun today with no mainstream media coverage at all.

The security exercise known as National Level Exercise 09 (NLE 09) will last for five days and will involve foreign security officials working in conjunction with the US military, as well as Federal, State, Local Tribal and Private Sector representatives. Read more here Infowars.net

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I've heard of this prediction some years ago and it sounded very ominous back then, but no one ever thought that our government would be foolish enough or sinister enough to do any thing like this.

Now that it has happened and the fact that the media was not involved in such a diabolical and historic event gives me great worry because any one radical enough that he would protest or try and save his country and his constitution from tyranny would be classified as a terrorist.

Our government is smart enough to know that our own troops would hesitate to fire at, round up or otherwise do harm to their own country men, but a foreign national would have no qualms about using any means necessary to stop a revolution or do the bidding of their superiors.

CUSTOMS WITHDRAWS KNIFE PROPOSAL

Proposed Amendment to Switchblade Act Forces Customs to Back Off

The biggest threat to knife ownership of 2009 has failed. U.S. Customs and Border Protection made it known yesterday it will no longer push to classify assisted openers as illegal switchblades.

Congratulations to everyone who helped defeat this measure by the authoritarians at Customs. From all of us at BLADE, thank you for standing up for what's right: the ability for peaceful people to own the knife of their choice.

Click here to read the article about this development.

One of the reasons that they may have backed off, beside of the fact that it nearly created an uprising, is the fact that if they had proceeded, they might have lost ground with the old and antiquated 1950 knee jerk version. I don't think that they liked the congress amended version as well as they did the original version.

Obamabate Obamacare

This debate over health care could run on endlessly and most certainly will for some time to come. We have those that would want it because they cannot afford the insurance on their own. We have those like me that knows that a government run anything is a bad idea and for many good reasons.

Voting in Obamacare would be a disaster that our nation cannot afford and would spell the complete end of freedom for the American public and yet voting it down will also insure that the health care industry will remain as out of control and as unaffordable as it has been for some time.

Perhaps it is now time to take a look at how we got to this insane point in the first place and look for the path back to sanity. I have been a sad witness to a lifetime of amazement and frustration at how the legislation system works and worse at just how inattentive and negligent the American citizen has been about it all. Over the years any attempts by me or a damn few others to bring to attention to the people of how much of their freedom was slipping away was merely met by bewildered and contemptuous looks.

Well the time has come and we have no one to blame except our complacent selves and I wonder just how much longer will the masses remain complacent about their freedom, remain complacent about their future and remain demanding of the government to provide for them.

To find the problems with health care, we need only to look at the myriad of laws passed over the years (and of course all were passed with your well being in mind, wink, wink). This tangle of law, red tape, rules and regulations is so staggering and complex as to surpass our tax codes.

I never ceases to amaze me that so many citizens actually believes that all of these laws were passed for the citizens well being and that their elected politicians are looking out for them. I dare think that no one in the know would disagree with me however if I suggested that wealth is created by legislation and that is why all corporation hire lobbyists to sway lawmakers to vote on the bills that are introduced and written by the corporation.

As long as we continue to allow Congress to conduct business in this manner, things will only keep getting worse and as you can see, we have already thrown the baby out with the bath water.

I will also make further comment on this horrendous bill by saying this; this bill was mostly intended to avert your attention from the myriad of treacherous, devious and perhaps treasonous tasks that Obama has set silently forth in motion. Obama is running full tilt and he is well organized in his efforts to enact his full powers and control over private and government organizations too numerous to comprehend. By the time that you hear the Obamanites use the term APALLO It will probably be too late and APALLO will have already eaten you.

Prepare

I have never seen so many good examples as today as to why we Americans need to stock up on any and all items that we would need to survive long term catastrophes when things go wrong.

I believe that we are on the very precipice of a very necessary American revolt and I also believe that the great Obamanation is working full speed to complete his coupe before the American public catches on.

I never figured to live long enough to see the inevitable revolution that is most certainly coming to this country, then I never figured that the American public could be so easily duped into electing a black Muslim raised raving racist radical promising candy to all the kids on the block.

Not sure how all this is going to play out, but it is not going to be pretty. When the stores are all looted, the power grid has been destroyed, the highways are filled with cars with empty tanks, it will be a very strange and different world.

Real ID, change to believe in?

Constitutional Tyranny
By Mark Lerner article

It is perfectly apparent that our country is under full scale attack from within and that the coup process is near complete.
There can be no argument that the current administration is acting out a far different plan than that which that he was elected on.
There can be no good argument for Real ID unless we are heading into fascism under the pretext of protection.
Stop, look, listen, I think I hear jack boots marching in the streets. It’s change that you will have to believe in or perish.

Time for cannons:

The hardest things in life are getting the attention of the blinder wearing media or your self serving government officials.

Imagine a parade of marchers all stylishly dressed in colonial militia uniforms and carrying muskets, drums and the red, white and blue, following close behind is a horse drawn caisson with cannon in tow.

The parade marches down Pennsylvania Avenue and maneuvers smartly into formation in front of the capital building with great showmanship and flair. As the troops are maneuvering into position with the troops facing the white house steps, the caisson pulls into place and drops the cannon tongue to the ground ready for action also facing the white house steps.

The captain in charge unrolls his orders and after a proper drum roll reads his declaration and demands out loud to the folks in the white house and to the on looking media.

Immediately afterward, the drill sergeant orders up shoulder arms and fires a volley of white smoke into the air which is followed by the cannon firing a giant wad of red White and blue confetti onto the white house lawn.

If this approach doesn’t get some attention, perhaps the next plan would be to just blow the doors off of the White house.

The Obamalization of Obamacare:

If the Obamanationalists want to Obamanationalize heath care, they only need to look as far as the Veterans Administration to see just how bad of an idea this will turn out to be.

The Veterans administration has been sadly run and under funded and is a hot bed of graft. As far as our vets go, it is a crap shoot whether or not they will get the medical help that they so justly deserve. Most of the money that the Veterans Administration receives is wasted in the mountain of red tape and paperwork. Veterans are either welcomed or rejected based on how many beds are available or how many dollars are left in the coffers. Some veterans have even been told that their service records were destroyed in a fire and that their is nothing that they can do for them.

Maybe the Obamanites should be doing their experimenting on this little government dept before they commit the whole nation to the same bad plan and take us all down to the same hell hole. Perhaps we should just let our veterans vote on this one.

Must Read Of The Day: A Historian’s Urgent Warning

Posted: 20 Jul 2009 10:17 AM PDT
Hat Tip: Charley
This urgent warning is a must-read for everyone, and one you should pass on to everyone you know. (Use the “email this post” at the top right; if you are reading this from the Right Soup front page, click on the post title to enable this function.)
This is a lengthy, but vital read. As one who holds degrees in history and political science, I concur with every point the highly accomplished Dr. David Kaiser makes in this vital wake-up call.

David Kaiser is a respected historian whose published works have covered a broad range of topics, from European Warfare to American League Baseball. Born in 1947, the son of a diplomat, Kaiser spent his childhood in three capital cities: Washington D.C., Albany, New York, and Dakar, Senegal. He attended Harvard University, graduating there in 1969 with a B.A. in history. He then spent several years more at Harvard, gaining a PhD in history, which he obtained in 1976. He served in the Army Reserve from 1970 to 1976.
He is a professor in the Strategy and Policy Department of the United States Naval War College and has previously taught at Carnegie Mellon, Williams College and Harvard University. Kaiser’s latest book, The Road to Dallas, about the Kennedy assassination, was just published by Harvard University Press.
“History Unfolding”
I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15 books on history that have been published in six languages, and I have studied history all my life. I have come to think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is simply a banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes these exist, but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a sharper focus.
Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it.. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about ten to fifteen years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.
We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to people we know they can never pay back? Why?
We learned just days ago that the Federal Reserve, which has little or no real oversight by anyone, has “loaned” two trillion dollars (that is $2,000,000,000,000) over the past few months, but will not tell us to whom or why or disclose the terms. That is our money. Yours and mine. And that is three times the $700 billion we all argued about so strenuously just this past September. Who has this money? Why do they have it? Why are the terms unavailable to us? Who asked for it? Who authorized it? I thought this was a government of “we the people,” who loaned our powers to our elected leaders. Apparently not.
We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our economy. Why?
We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers are not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity. Why?
We have now established the precedent of protesting every close election (violently in California over a proposition that is so controversial that it simply wants marriage to remain defined as between one man and one woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago?) We have corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected judges to write laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a banana republic. To what purpose?
Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall, major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of collapse, social security is nearly bankrupt, as is medicare and our entire government. Our education system is worse than a joke (I teach college and I know precisely what I am talking about) - the list is staggering in its length, breadth, and depth.. It is potentially 1929 x ten… And we are at war with an enemy we cannot even name for fear of offending people of the same religion, who, in turn, cannot wait to slit the throats of your children if they have the opportunity to do so.
And finally, we have elected a man that no one really knows anything about, who has never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as Wasilla, Alaska. All of his associations and alliances are with real radicals in their chosen fields of employment, and everything we learn about him, drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary (Surely you have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders? No? Oh, of course. The media would never play that for you over and over and then demand he answer it. Sarah Palin’s pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe are more important.)
Mr. Obama’s winning platform can be boiled down to one word: Change. Why?
I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now.
This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never, ever done in his professional life. In my assessment, Obama will divide us along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to realign the pieces into a new and different power structure. Change is indeed coming. And when it comes, you will never see the same nation again.
And that is only the beginning..
As a serious student of history, I thought I would never come to experience what the ordinary, moral German must have felt in the mid-1930s In those times, the “savior” was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing. What they should have known was that he was associated with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great oratory. Conservative “losers” read it right now.
And there were the promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and frowned and waved a lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his “brown shirts” would bully and beat them into submission. Which they did - regularly. And then, he was duly elected to office, while a full-throttled economic crisis bloomed at hand - the Great Depression. Slowly, but surely he seized the controls of government power, person by person, department by department, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The children of German citizens were at first, encouraged to join a Youth Movement in his name where they were taught exactly what to think. Later, they were required to do so. No Jews of course.
How did he get people on his side? He did it by promising jobs to the jobless, money to the money-less, and rewards for the military-industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe , and across the world. He did it with a compliant media - did you know that? And he did this all in the name of justice and …. . .. change. And the people surely got what they voted for.
If you think I am exaggerating, look it up. It’s all there in the history books.
So read your history books. Many people of conscience objected in 1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and ridiculed. When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though. And the world came to regret that he was not listened to.
Do not forget that Germany was the most educated, the most cultured country in Europe . It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And yet, in less than six years (a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency) it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors.. All with the best of intentions, of course. The road to Hell is paved with them.
As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I have a choice: I can either believe what the objective pieces of evidence tell me (even if they make me cringe with disgust); I can believe what history is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven decades; or I can hope I am wrong by closing my eyes, having another latte, and ignoring what is transpiring around me..
I choose to believe the evidence. No doubt some people will scoff at me, others laugh, or think I am foolish, naive, or both. To some degree, perhaps I am. But I have never been afraid to look people in the eye and tell them exactly what I believe-and why I believe it.
I pray I am wrong. I do not think I am. Perhaps the only hope is our vote in the next elections.

Rescind a law and save a dollar

Dear Senator Murray,

Thank you for your quick reply and support regarding the amendments concerning the Homeland security and the switchblade law. This will give us all a bit of breathing space and make it a little easier for many of us to stay in business.

However, I read this amendment and was very frustrated by the fact that the language was very vague and obscure. The language used in this amendment will actually guarantee that judges and lawyers will have much to argue over for years to come. In fact I can see really little improvement or difference from the original antiquated 1958 switchblade law.

What this law does not provide for is the creativity and ingenuity of the American people. In fact it could very well hinder the creation of a knife that is actually much safer, stronger and better than any thing in current use, such as the knife that I have spent the past three years in developing. I am sure that if my knife sees the light of day it will encourage others to improve upon it even further and provide the consumer more good benefits yet. No law should be able to restrict this kind of good progress unless it can be proven beyond any doubt to be so harmful as to endanger us all.

What should have been done and still needs to be done is to simply rescind this antiquated law because of the needless grief caused by it to so many innocent citizens and the enormous waste of tax dollars spent enforcing it.

Sure, we can all see why the law enforcing community likes to have a plenteous basket of laws to work with in order to have something at hand to remove a hoodlum from the streets, but this law has no real basis and shame on lawmakers who make knee jerk laws based on Hollywood movies. Rescind a law and save a dollar.

What now? Time for cannons?

I was watching Glen Beck and Bill O'Rielly the other night on the factor and Glen mentioned a chat that he had with one of his fans during one of his road trips.

After Glen had made his speech about the need for folks to get into action, this fan of his stood up and said, "Glen, we have written many a letter and have made our strong protests to our elected officials to no avail, what do we do next? What can we do now?"

This is the crux of the problem, our elected officials do not and will not listen to our protests because it is not in their present interests to listen no matter how serious our efforts or the mass of folks concerned.

What springs to mind is the part in the movie "The Alamo" where Travis simply answers the Mexican generals demands for surrender with the blast of a cannon. Got his immediate attention and made his point crystal clear.

Do we need to dress up in colonial costume and drag an old independence war cannon up to the front door of the White House and blow the doors off in order to get someones undivided attention?

Letter to my friends and readers

Hi Tom,

This years 4th of July has been a very somber one for many of us because of the great coup and the usurpation of our freedom by the present administration and the creation of the Homeland security of the past administration.

Never before has this nation been threatened more than it is today because the "Great Messiah" has ordered all government departments to pull out all the stops and enact as many rules/laws as they can, no matter how bad, whether it is by legislation of a lopsided congress or the more back door method of simply using the federal register to sneak it past the citizens of this country.

Oboma has himself said that he will sign into law a bill on health care no matter how bad it is. I have never seen such an all out rush to grab our liberty and rights as is going on now, if we lose our constitution and bill of rights we will have lost it all.

Oboma swore to uphold the constitution, not tear it apart. Some one will get rich someday by writing a book called "The Great American Coup" or how to use the system to destroy the system.

If "Oboma the Great Obomanation" has his way, he will completely shut down my business. All the hard work that I have put into the new Xross Bar Lock folding knife,over these past three years, will be for nothing and I will have nothing left to do but to live in the streets.

Perhaps you did the smart thing when you settled on a foreign soil, you don't have to lay awake at night and wonder what is going to happen to you next.

As usual, most of our good friends at the old hangout have their heads stuck in the sand box (read as any ball game that takes no thought or effort and gives them comfort while ignoring the crisis that is about to befall them). Makes me wonder what side they will land on once the fence that they are sitting on gets blown out from under them.

As for the 4th, I spent it writing a page, "The Great Frustration" in my blog http://thegreat4thofjulypitchforkparade.blogspot.com/ with tears in my eyes. My friend, I fear greatly that the beloved country that we grew up in and came to love so dearly is at and end.

I did not wish any one a happy 4th this year, I instead wished them all a very solemn 4th. and a safe journey.

Open Letter to my senators

An open letter to my senators, all government officials, elected or entrenched and to my fellow friends and citizens.

In the light of the fact that various forms of our government is working at high speed using backdoor attempts to sneak past the citizen, many such laws that are unconstitutional and harmful to a free nations way of life, I ask you to please at even higher speed to start impeachment proceedings of the President of the United States of America.

I urge you to take up this task at once before the present administration completely destroys the constitution and our beloved and free way of life.

Even as a Democrat, you must certainly wonder by now just what in the world is going on with President Obama and what will happen if he remains in office for a full term.

If President Obama should refute the fact that he is behind the big push to usurp our government, I then would suggest that he is totally inept at running our country as a President.

If this man was a captain of a US Navy Vessel and performed his duties as recklessly as he has in the White House, he would have been relieved of his duty by one of his officers by now and facing a court martial.

If you are wondering if I am concerned with the government prying into my life as a result of airing my views and concerns with our government, you are correct. It scares the hell out of me what the powers may try and do to me, but things need to be brought to the light of day.

Folks we are under mass attack by the obomination, Just in,

http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h45/text

Congress is now starting on the firearms confiscation bill. If it passes, gun owners
will become criminals if you don't fully comply.

It has started.

Very important for you to be aware of a new bill HR 45 introduced into the House. This is the Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sale Act of 2009.

Even gun shop owners didn't know about this because the government is trying to fly it under the radar.

To find out about this - go to any government website and type in HR 45 or GoogleHR 45 Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sales Act of 2009. You will get all the information.

Basically this would make it illegal to own a firearm - any rifle with a clip or ANY pistol unless:

-It is registered -You are fingerprinted -You supply a current Driver's License -You supply your Social Security # -You will submit to a physical & mental evaluation at any time of their choosing –

Each update - change or ownership through private or public sale must be reported and costs $25 - Failure to do so you automatically lose the right to own a firearm and are subject up to a year in jail. –

There is a child provision clause on page 16 section 305 stating a child-access provision. Gun must be locked and inaccessible to any child under 18. -They would have the right to come and inspect that you are storing your gun safely away from accessibility to children and fine is punishable for up to 5 yrs. in prison.

If you think this is a joke - go to the website and take your pick of many options to read this. It is long and lengthy. But, more and more people are becoming aware of this. Pass the word along. Any hunters in your family pass this along.

This is just a "termite" approach to complete confiscation of guns and disarming of our society to the point we have no defense - chip away a little here and there until the goal is accomplished before anyone realizes it.

This is one to act on whether you own a gun or not. If you take my gun, only the criminal will have one to use against me. HR 45 only makes me/us less safe. After working with convicts for 26 years I know this bill, if passed would make them happy and in less danger from their victims.

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c111:H.R.45


http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h45/show

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h111-45

Please copy and send this out to EVERYONE in the USA , whether you support the Right to Bear Arms or are for gun control. We all should have the right to choose.

The great frustration

Well here it is the 4th of July and I've done all that I can.

I've done all that I can think to do to try and prevent the government from rewriting the old switchblade law and essentially outlawing any and all folding knives. I just hope that the letters that I've sent to my congressman and Senators will actually be acted upon and not simply ignored and trashed.

This callus and misguided act by our out of control government, if it succeeds, will put thousands of honest folks, including myself, out of work and make millions of US citizens De fac'to felons. I fear the very worst.

The frustration sets in not only by the governments refusal to hear any refute from the citizen about these laws that will impact their lives, but also by the shear numbers of the (too many to mention) other attempts to usurp our basic rights by government as well.

I'm saddened, frustrated and extremely angry that the only recourse that I can think of, at this point, is to gather up anything that I can use as a weapon and try to ready myself for the impending bloodiest war that Americans may likely to ever experience.

I ponder the fates of my country, friends and neighbors and those of us that will take up the fight for our freedom and I also ponder the fates of those folks, some of who I know and call friend, that have been misled so bad as to believe capitalism is somehow evil and what we need is some kind of change. Well we have seen the change and it is the evil one. Beware of politicians, especially those that promise change.

I can only hope that these poor misguided folks will land on the right side of the fence once it is blown out from underneath them.

I celebrate this 4th of July with a great sadness in my heart and a tear in my eye. I wish you all a very solemn 4th, and a safe journey.

Declaration 2

It would seem that the proliferation of the nation's tea party movement would be a strong indication that the people of this country would like to make a Second Declaration of their intention of preserving their freedom. Only this time it is not aimed at a foreign power it is aimed directly at those who have, by dubious means, seized the powers of this nation.

The question is, just how far will the entrenched or the self anointed go to hold on to their usurped powers. Will the entrenched try to rally those who are expecting government handouts or to enrich their lives through special entitlements and government giveaway programs. Will the BATF soon march from door to door seizing our weapons, cash and food in the name of preserving the peace and protecting us from ourselves?

Until we stop quibbling with each other and start pulling together as a nation and begin to dig the smelly rats out of their holes and expose them for what they really are, we will continue to slide down the slope to our demise.

We need to free our press from the tyranny of censorship and the tentacles of spin doctors so that we can once again view our world in the true light of day.

We need to once again become self reliant, confident in our leaders ability to protect our freedom and the constitution.

We need to stop the indoctrination of our children through our schools and the insidious political Hollywood cartoons and sitcoms. We need instead to teach our children to be strong, self reliant and vigilant against those that would again tear down the foundation of their freedom. We must teach them to live free or die protecting it. We need to prepare. We need to change washington back to what it once was and can be again.

Bumper Sticker


Damn Right I'm Angry



Problem With That?

Under attack

We are under a full frontal attack by our own government these days and by those that would profit by taking our freedoms away and we are losing ground at an alarming rate. Every day brings news of yet another onslaught of new proposed laws and more taxes. Evey day brings us closer to "The Great Demise of America".

It is difficult to keep up with all of the daily shenanigans fostered by some self serving beaurocrat and even more difficult to know what to do about it. Far too many US citizens are still hoping for the "messiah" to hand them an easy life and guaranty their safety. So when in the history of the world has that ever happened?

Many other folks choose not to hear the words of dissent and prefer instead to keep their heads in the sand in hopes that big brother will look out for their interests. I hang with a few of these folks sometimes and I know their sand box well. It goes mostly by the label of sports and you can hear the never ending babble about RBI's and a slew of other sport jargon terms. Don't waste your time because these guys will sit on the fence until someone shoots it out from under them.

The saddest part of this is, by the time these guys pull their heads out of the sand, it will be far too late to matter.
