Sarah’s Army of Davids…

Posted: February 5, 2011 in Uncategorized

When Sarah spoke at the 100th anniversary dinner at the Reagan Ranch Center last night, she embodied in her the speech, the heart and soul of Reagan-style conservatism: that the country is not going to go down without a fight, and that fight will be waged by ‘an army of Davids’, i.e, the heartwood and rootstock of the Tea Party who will not let our country be sold out into some kind of weird socialist ‘paradise’, despite what some pollsters may claim as our future.

Sarah spoke to a real fear out there as burgeoning debt and government regulations limit hiring. She also spoke about the dangers of big-government joining big-business in a cronyism that would lead to the government entering even more into our marketplace, forcing its eco-agenda on us when other solutions offer more return on investment. The nanny-statism of the Left is not in the best interests of this country, with its politically correct paradise that includes an eco-terrorism that would deny water to once prosperous farms in the Simi Valley. As we all know by now, the agenda of the new world, the would-be order of the current socialist regime in Washington differs markedly from the mainstream of America’s interests, from how we intend to use our hard-earned wealth, to how we intend to go about our business of earning a living without worrying about which lightbulbs we’re ‘allowed’ to buy.

As Palin so rightly pointed out, it is up not going to be up to one special person here in America, but to every one of us now, to embolden ourselves enough to care about the future of this country, to stay united in our determination to stop the Goliath of unwanted intrusion and in-your-face government nannyism by a government that has grown too big for its britches. For far too long its agenda of over-reach and nannyism been allowed to pervade our homes, schools and businesses. It’s time to sent the politics of Left packing out the side door by the garbage pile where it belongs.

Another encroachment. Yes, I totally loathe knock-off sites, and giving these cockroaches a heads up they are about to be squashed is tantamount to giving them a chance to throw the goods in the truck and drive off.  But the important point that did come up in this post by Mike Flynn was to prompt the everyday citizen to ask, “why oh why is the so called DHS (Department of Homeland Iniquities?) now about the business of seizing websites?”

What started as President George W. Bush’s slight crack in the door via the Patriot Act, has been morphed by the current regime into outright in your face acts of government bullying.  I seem to recall the Founding Fathers mentioning that trading certain liberties for safety inevitably lead to the loss of even more liberty, inch by inch, bureaucracy by bureaucracy.  This time it’s using fake merchandise and copyright infringement as the latest excuse to overreach the boundaries of our legal system.  Without prior notice to the site owners, the sites were shut down and DHS emblems posted on them.  Who decided the warrantless fate of these sites?  READ MORE…

Jobs, Grubmint Style

Posted: November 18, 2010 in Wasteful Spending

Lest you think the lowly administrative clerk doesn’t pay, well get a load of this pay rate courtesy of the Army Corps of Engineers.  Actually it’s courtesy of your tax money:

Department: Department Of The Army
Agency: Army Corps of Engineers
Job Announcement Number:
NCFV10606078D

“Administrative Support Assistant”

“SALARY RANGE: 42,209.00 – 54,875.00 USD per year”

Let’s see, that comes to around $20 – $26 an hour depending on your hire-in rate.  And that doesn’t include grubmint holidays, pension, nor health insurance for what is normally an $8 an hour job in fly-over country…unbelievable.  I hope Sarah considers cutting away at this kind of spending.  This is using the defense budget as reward money to progressive Loyalists, effectively making the middle class a bunch of wage mules so the bureau weenies can dole out favoritism in the form of high-end wages.

UPDATE: Tammy Bruce has provided a link to “…one of the authors of Arizona’s SB 1070, who has written an op-ed piece rebutting each of the criticisms of the bill. Please do read it for more ammunition in answering whatever mindless, hysterical liberals you encounter.”

Kobach: Why Arizona Drew a Line

(Excerpt) “ON Friday, Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona signed a law — SB 1070 — that prohibits the harboring of illegal aliens and makes it a state crime for an alien to commit certain federal immigration crimes. It also requires police officers who, in the course of a traffic stop or other law-enforcement action, come to a “reasonable suspicion” that a person is an illegal alien verify the person’s immigration status with the federal government.”

***************************************************************************

The recent law in Arizona granting police the right to demand identification is Arizona flexing its legal muscle to protect its borders during a time of land invasion, i.e., by Mexican citizens. Why would such action be different from any one of us attempting to cross into Mexico, with no thought respecting the sovereignty of that nation and its borders?  Mexican drug cartel and violence by those here illegally will continue to escalate  because our boundaries are weak or not enforced. Ignoring the consequences of such bullying will continue to leave American dead, and mountains of trash and dead animals rotting in its wake.Entering Arizona on I-10 Westbound

The new law has drawn the ire of liberal immigration protesters, who demonstrate loudly, threatening to boycott Arizona.  Go for it lefties.  Make a lot of noise, like a Halloween monster out scaring little kids.  LSM talk shows and screen shots draw attention to vocal, screaming opposition, injecting fear of more violence into the message, making it seem like more people are against than for it.  When are they going to show the rancher who was shot, or the countless lives lost on our highways from illegals who can’t be prosecuted without a legal identity in this country?  The LSM spin leaves out the obvious: the law effectively establishes the sovereign right of the state of Arizona to set boundaries, protecting it from further violation.

Hmmm…let’s see — do you drive without a license? Can you apply for most jobs without proof of citizenship (the purpose of e-Verify)? What about a background check for a loan, or a job?  These are on the spot demands to show proof of identification.  Ante up or no job, loan, college application, driver’s license, USPS postal box, forwarding address request, marriage license, school entrance, candidacy (oops — another issue?), security clearance, ad infinitum.  Federal and state government and businesses already demand such proof.  Arizona should not have to justify to the liberal left their sovereign right to enact laws protecting not only borders but residents during a time of invasion.  The liberal left does not own this country, the People, through what used to be our representation do.  It would seem that the Lame Stream Media still thinks they know what’s best for us, as they pat us on the head, spin us around, and shove us out their back door.  They are not living at the border.

The governor of  Arizona took measures to reduce not only escalating violence, but human trafficking across her state borders.  Meanwhile her state’s residents quietly attempt to clean up the mess in the desert.  More power to them.

“They are business executives. Political movers and shakers. Sports icons. Media moguls. They’re the most prominent women who are redefining womanhood in 21st-century America…From Sarah Pali to Oprah Winfrey to Kathy Ireland to Suzy Welch to Ivanka Trump, these women share several traits: They’re smart, independent, successful, and they’re shaping feminism today — even if it means being a mom and raising kids!” — Newsmax article,  “Sarah Palin and the Leaders of the Newer Feminism”

In case the writers of that article missed it, the real women leaders of America today, with the exception of Sarah Palin are not in the list Newsmax has hyped.  The real feminist leaders “redefining womanhood in 21st-century America” are the women busy organizing and supporting the efforts of the tea parties to keep safe our country.  These are the women who have not forgotten what happened to Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential election, where in the real world the forgotten man turned out to be a woman.  

America’s mainstream feminists are not going to forget how the LSM treated Hillary Clinton, nor are not going to forget how the LSM savaged Sarah Palin and her children.  And they are not going to forget how the LSM ridiculed Carrie Prejean, pounding her with its anti-mainstay family agenda, while many women today struggle to hold their families together in an economic climate made up of hopeful strawpaper.  NopeWe will not forget what the media did to political hopefuls who happened to be women, and the ruin of our economy by socialist Democrats out to run this nation into the ground.

So here’s an invitation to the sewer rats of the LSM that work for Soros, the Girls of Alaska, and the DNC drones who have littered the Internet with miles and miles of nasty remarks about Palin:  meet the millions of women of the tea parties who are organizing to get out the vote, and who will be rallying round our flag and our country during the elections of 2010.  Because when momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.

And last I checked, women have been business executives, political movers, sports and media leaders — since forever!  Nope, the “feminism shaping” today is not about burning our underwear, walking around topless, or buying into NOW’s latest out-of-touch vision of what we are supposed to be at all.  It’s about realizing that women have been quietly contributing without fanfare to the needs of their families, their country and their jobs every day.  And if we need some feminist organization or media hype artist defining our heroines, or our new place in today’s society, we’ll let you know. 

God Bless America!

Here is the text of the letter presented by Jon Voight on Fox New’s, “Huckabee” show:

“In one year, the American people are witnessing the greatest lie that is cleverly orchestrated by President Obama and his whole administration.

The lie is a potent aggression that feeds the needs of people who either have not educated themselves enough to understand the assault upon us all or the very poor and needy who live to be taken care of.

President Obama feeds these people poison, giving them the idea that they are entitled to take from the wealthier who have lived and worked in a democracy that understands that capitalism is the only truth that keeps a nation healthy and fed.

Now the lie goes very deep and President Obama has been cleverly trained in the Alinsky method and it would be very important that every American knows what that method is. It is a socialistic, Marxist teaching and with it, little by little, he rapes this nation, taking down our defenses, making new language for the Islamic extremists. The world looked up to us as a symbol of hope and prosperity now wonders what will become of the entire world if America is losing its power.

The American people who understand exactly what is taking place have come together in the thousands, vowing to try to stay together as a unit of love and freedom for all men and women, from all walks of life, shivering to think that this once great nation will be a third world country.

This will be the first president to ever weaken the United States of America. President Obama uses his aggression and arrogance for his own agenda, against the will of the American people when he should be using his will and aggression against our enemies.

Every loving American for peace and truth and the security of our nation must come out and join the Tea Parties in their states. The opposition will continue their tactics; they will lie and plant their own bullies amongst us. Everyone must pay close attention to who stands next to them. We can weed out the liars and agitators. Let us all stay in Gods light. Let no man put asunder. We can and we will prevail. God bless us all!”

H/T to Theodore’s World

Looking back over the bitter political moonscape of 2008 followed by a stand-out book tour of 2009, we are now entering the breach of 2010, where Governor Palin’s speaking venues are fast filling up with the high-profile names of the Right: Liz Cheney, Fred Thompson, Michele Bachmann, Laura Bush, Tim Pawlenty, et al.

Karl Rove now offers her his advice to “Get Ready”, and Mitt Romney tenders grudging respect with ‘yes, she’s presidential caliber’ — oops, did I say “caliber”? What a long way you’ve come baby. Meanwhile, the targeting from the Left continues on unabated, (only just recently they’ve posted instructions to their minions to invade the Tea Parties, who seem loaded with a lot of granny-aged protestors, so this is going to get interesting?), as they pick through mostly garbage for anything, anything to throw at the majority Right.

One wonders why some of her supporters now turn their backs on her as she is “making too much money”, and ‘gone mainstream’ politically. Would they say the same of Mitt Romney, or Ron Paul? I doubt it.

But Ron Paul is not narrating a TV series on Americans at their best, not narrating a TV series about the beauty and wonders of the Last Frontier, not written the top non-fiction bestseller of 2009, not firing back on his Face Book against the leftist steamroll, and not tending to America’s desperate need right now to stay strong and confident about our future.

Americans feel cast adrift upon this the most ominous and tumultuous economic times for our baby-boomer generation, and who is our Captain? I’ll take Governor Palin any day over anything the Left has, ever.

Fighting Back – How to Confront the Liberal Agenda on their own Turf 

Since the railroading of the death care bill over the wishes of the majority of Americans, the LSM has upped its ongoing tactic to distract, marginalize and drown out the conservative voice, particularily Governor Palin’s. Media mouthpieces Curry, Mitchell, Sawyer, Couric, Maddow, et al, pick any day, another event, they blast away continually, savaging the conservative voice with ridicule, race baiting, and false claims of calls to violence by conservatives, ad nauseum.

How do we meet that? Set your sites on contacting the LSM broadcasting stations that promote false news, false witness, false reporting. Your target will be to zero in like crosshairs on reporters who use fear mongering and ridicule against everyday Americans who oppose their agenda.

STAND UP TO LEFT at every opportunity. Remember the motto of the Boy Scouts? BE PREPARED. Reload your talking points to keep them fresh and your powder dry. Be ready to denounce the liars of the left. They have been around a long time with their obnoxious and dangerous agenda. We are just getting started, propelled by the truth and a desire to remain free, honor liberty and continue the pursuit of our happiness on our own terms.

What is The DELPHI Technique?
Originally published in 1969 by the Rand Corporation

” The Delphi Technique was originally conceived as a way to obtain the opinion of experts without necessarily bringing them together face to face. In Educating for the New World Order by Bev Eakman, the reader finds reference upon reference for the need to preserve the illusion that there is “Lay, or community, participation in the decision-making process, while in fact lay citizens are being squeezed out.”

A specialized use of this technique was developed for teachers, the “Alinsky Method” (ibid., p. 123). The setting or group is, however, immaterial the point is that people in groups tend to share a certain knowledge base and display certain identifiable characteristics (known as group dynamics). This allows for a special application of a basic technique.

  1. The “change agent” or “facilitator” goes through the motions of acting as an organizer, getting each person in the target group to elicit expression of their concerns about a program, project, or policy in question. The facilitator listens attentively, forms “task forces,” “urges everyone to make lists,” and so on.
  2. While she is doing this, the facilitator learns something about each member of the target group. He/she identifies the “leaders,” the “loud mouths,” as well as those who frequently turn sides during the argument – the “weak or non-committal.”
  3. Suddenly, the amiable facilitator becomes “devil’s advocate.” He/she dons his professional agitator hat. Using the “divide and conquer” technique, he/she manipulates one group opinion against the other. This is accomplished by manipulating those who are out of step to appear “ridiculous, unknowledgeable, inarticulate, or dogmatic.”  He/she wants certain members of the group to become angry, thereby forcing tensions to accelerate.
  4. The facilitator is well trained in psychological manipulation. S/He is able to predict the reactions of each group member. Individuals in opposition to the policy or program will be shut out of the group.
  5. The desired result is for group polarization, and for the facilitator to become accepted as a member of the group and group process. He/she will then throw the desired idea on the table and ask for opinions during discussion. Very soon his/her associates from the divided group begin to adopt the idea as if it were their own, and pressure the entire group to accept the proposition.

The method works. It is very effective with parents, teachers, school children, and any community group. The “targets” rarely, if ever, know that they are being manipulated. If they do suspect this is happening, they do not know how to end the process.

This technique is a very unethical method of achieving consensus on a controversial topic in group settings. It requires well-trained professionals who deliberately escalate tension among group members, pitting one faction against the other, so as to make one viewpoint appear ridiculous so the other becomes “sensible” whether such is warranted or not.”

 

A Crisis of Consensus

Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI), eloquently speaks of the “crisis of consensus”, following the House Democrats vote, effectively forcing a government takeover the health care industry:

From William Jacobson comes this superb link to the utter bucket of lies that the Congress and the White House are attempting to foist on the American people:

So Many Lies, So Little Time

The lies behind the Obamacare push resemble birds flocking together and fish swimming in schools. By throwing forward so many falsehoods as to the supposed benefits of Obamacare, it confuses attackers and makes it harder to isolate any one lie.

Firedoglake, which stands almost alone in exposing Obamacare from the left, has put together a very useful chart of all the lies (embed below). These lies are lies regardless of whether one approaches the monstrosity known as Obamacare from the principled left or the principled right.

The truth doesn’t come in left or right, and the truth is that there are so many lies behind Obamacare that we are on the verge of the single biggest mistake since we elected Obama in the first place.”
