Puzzle Pieces Falling Into Place

Americans deserve better. Our Military deserves better.  We need to demand better.

Sometimes you have to just sit back, and wait for the puzzle piece to fit. Well, today a whole lot more puzzle pieces are fitting, and it is not looking too good for Obama....

Backtrack with me if you will, to the 3rd and final presidential debate. Remember how many  of us were shocked that Romney didn't try to slam Obama again on Libya?  Now, with the breaking news today, of Obama, Biden, and Panetta, all being in white house, in the situation room...watching in real time, as help from Libya is requested and denied 3 of course raises the question of why, and what must they be trying to run from, or hide. (and also please remember, Biden, in the vp debate having the audacity to say he and Obama didn't know they had requested help) But, remember now.....Romney now gets daily intelligence reports, and before that 3rd debate, he most probably already knew this. So, rather than give Obama a nationally televised platform to try to make another big flap of a lie, Romney made the correct decision to back off from the story, and let it play out to congress, and to us, via the media. Thankfully, it is playing out now, rather than after the election.

As if the economy wasn't enough to bring Obama down, this should seal the deal. He is done. He is no leader, and he and his ilk don't give a flip about those our nation sends into harm's way. Obama has to go.
Thankfully, we only have 10 days to make that official.

Manchurian to the Nth Degree

When the Truth Hurts
Ordinarily I do not base an article solely on the work of another author, preferring instead to research the works of many in order to create a body of my own. Today is different, however, as I have the work of Stella Paul of American Thinker to relay and somewhat summarize for you. Ms. Paul has not reported much new, per se, but she has managed to stitch together the threads of well-known Obama strange doings in a way that made me sit bolt upright in my chair.

Her article -- "Will Obama Keep Power 'by Any Means Necessary'?" -- punched me square in the gut as I simultaneously smacked my forehead. The title asks a question many of us have privately wondered to ourselves, only to wave the thought away as "fringe" and outlandish. This is precisely what the Progressives have counted upon. It's also how they have, er, "progressed" so far in the alteration of the land we love, right under our noses.

Even as I write this, more pieces of the grand puzzle come to light, and I now refuse to be complicit in my own enslavement. Therefore, I am throwing off the governor that inhibits what many would successfully call conspiracy theory, because once the path is lit, traversing it is child's play, even at night, and I mean to find what's at the end of it. Before continuing, I strongly recommend reading Ms. Paul's article in its entirety, as I will refer to it frequently and with a minimum of clarification as I move forward.

To begin, one must wonder, finally, about the meteoric rise of Obama. Think about that for a moment...where did this guy come from? If you're old enough to be reading this and old enough to have lived through a few presidential election cycles, you will realize that there has never -- in America's history -- been such an unknown or non-quantified person to ever win the presidential election. Yet, here is President Obama. Some may point to America's ultimate desire to finally have a black president, but Obama was not the first candidate to meet that criterion. No other black candidate even came within a whiff of the Oval Office despite being much more widely acquainted with the electorate.

Once he secured the Democratic National Committee (DNC) nod as the 2008 candidate, Obama began to campaign in earnest. There, he committed more Freudian slips than a police suspect on sodium pentothal, and while some in the "new media" pointed out these lapses in tactical acumen, the mainstream media ran a better propaganda campaign than Joseph Goebbels could have ever imagined. Who could forget his slip in the George Stephanopoulos interview in 2008, when Obama said "my Muslim faith", only to be quickly corrected by the host. And then there is the famous "Joe the Plumber" incident, when candidate Obama said plainly that it's better to spread the wealth around.

These are not American ideals to a vast majority of people. Still, Obama won the election by some miracle, and what he's done since is where the meat of Paul's article lies.

It leads straight to the media culpability in providing cover for the Obama Presidency and its subsequent machinations, which began in earnest shortly after Inauguration Day. With a media all to willing to help such a president, the events of his tenure have seems like infrequent blips on an all but moribund radar screen, but taken together and with proper attention, they are chilling.

Right out of the gate, this president went on what I refer to as the Forgive Us Our Trespasses tour, despite the president's own denials at the third debate. He was in Cairo apologizing for America's "rudeness" and "having dictated to other countries". Regardless of his or the media's refusal to acknowledge these acts, Obama did do them. We all saw it.

Then there were the auto bailouts, where the president disregarded bankruptcy law in handing GM over to the unions at the expense of the rightful bondholders; the investors, who lost out. Throw in his failed "green energy" string of red ink, and the ball was rolling on bankrupting all of us. Here we stand at $16 trillion in debt and counting all the while this president called his predecessor "unpatriotic" for paying on credit for two wars that Congress approved.

Who do they plan on shooting?
The so-called "Arab Spring" had such a nice sound to it, didn't it? I mean, here we were watching "democracy" sprout in Islamist countries. Who would oppose such a notion? Yet now we are seeing the Muslim Brotherhood beginning to take control of a large portion of the Middle East, and I bet that democracy is not in their immediate future.

What about Obama telling Medvedev on a hot mike that he will have more flexibility after he's re-elected? No one even asked the question.

But perhaps the most disturbing events of all are what's been going on here at home. We've had the Department of Homeland Security running military drills in Los Angeles, Chicago, and a few other cities. We're seeing drones being utilized all across the countries. Who is the DHS training in these drills, anyway? Are they training their forces for urban combat, or are they training us to expect these actions as routine when they finally prepare to attack?

And finally, the bullets. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has purchased  46,000 rounds of hollow point bullets, otherwise known as "cop killers". Really, the weather channel needs to be armed?

Following that act, the Social Security Administration purchased 174,000 rounds of the same rounds to be distributed to 41 locations across the country. The most chilling news, though, I will excerpt from Ms. Paul's article:

Most terrifying of all, Major General Curry reports that the Department of Homeland Security ordered 750 million rounds of hollow-point ammunition in March, then subsequently ordered an additional 750 million rounds, including bullets capable of penetrating walls.
"This is enough ammunition to empty five rounds into the body of every living American citizen," writes Major General Curry, who wonders what plan might require "so many dead Americans."

One must wonder, indeed. We have 13 days until Election Day, and we have to hope we get there first, hope that Obama is defeated, and then hope that the period between the vote and the inauguration sees no "catastrophe" that will give Obama a reason to use his Executive Orders in order to seize a new term.

Resistance is NOT Futile

Romney is surging.
As little as six months ago we were being led to believe by polls and the mainstream media that Barack Obama's reelection was a foregone conclusion, a virtual lock. There was no conceivable way that anyone could beat him, we were told, because he was so popular and his fundraising was too organized for any Republican candidate to come close.

The underlying message for Conservatives, of course, is to give up and stay home, it is useless. Once upon a time, that might have worked, perhaps even in 2008, but not this time.

The midterm elections serve as a vivid reminder of what the people can do when they have had enough, and considering it's already two years past the midterms, the people have had that much time to have really had enough. That isn't stopping the liberal media, however.

Early this morning, Reuters posted an article telling us that a Reuters/IPSOS poll shows Obama has "grab[bed] a wide lead" among early voters. "59-31", trumpets Reuters, and although they do acknowledge that the sampling size is "relatively small", they couldn't help but to add that "the Democrat's margin is still well above the poll's credibility interval...of 10 percentage points", whatever that means.

After the 2000 election of George W. Bush -- which was close and bitterly contested -- the networks all agreed to hold back on polling results to allow everyone in other time zones to cast their ballots before hearing that a candidate had already sewn up the win. So why is Reuters now trying to give us election polling three weeks before Election Day? I maintain that it's an effort to portray the election as an exercise in futility.

Tell that to the massive crowds that keep showing up to Romney rallies around the country, particularly since the October 3rd debate. As Election Day gets closer, people are showing more enthusiasm and packing Romney appearances. In Ohio, The Columbus Dispatch has a photograph of a huge crowd for Romney. A telling passage from the accompanying article says it all:

For much of this year, Romney, the sometimes-stiff former businessman, has had a hard time generating the same electricity as Obama. 
Indeed, most of the GOP's most passionate voters did not back Romney during the extended Republican primary season. His campaign typically favors made-for-TV invitation-only events where the emphasis is imagery — Navy ships, manufacturing plants, farm equipment — rather than crowd size. Audiences did increase as Romney began campaigning alongside running mate Paul Ryan, a favorite of the tea party, but he has generally struggled to get people excited on his own. 
Until this week. 
He drew an estimated 12,000 people to a central Florida rally last weekend, 1,200 to an Iowa town of just 1,000, and several hundred more to Newport News, Va., under heavy October rain.

Contagion is not just for infectious diseases anymore, folks. Feed off of this and become part of it. When Election Day is here, let's go to the polls and give Romney the biggest crowd ever, and prove to the Democrats that resistance is not futile after all.

Fundamentally Transformed

The New World Order
In 2008, less than a week before the election of Barack Obama, the candidate told an audience that "We are five days away from fundamentally transforming America", and boy, was he right. It was probably the last time he's told the truth since then. With the next presidential election now looming large on the horizon -- a mere 35 days away -- it might be a good time to remind our fellow Americans just how transformed we've become.

I wrote in September of 2008 to anyone planning to vote for Obama that if we woke up on January 21st of 2009 and didn't "recognize the country, don't come crying to me". Many have anyway, and I find my sympathies oddly intact, for those voters seem genuinely contrite. What's more is that the change has been so striking that changing it back is no longer an option but of paramount importance, so I am in a mood to forgive anyone who plans to vote against Obama now.

For all the promises Obama made on the campaign trail in 2008, for all the visions he conjured of Congress working together and "getting America back on track", look around you now. We've had a Democratically-controlled Senate since 2007, and once Obama took the reigns of POTUS, they have not passed a budget since. The fiscal budget debt of George W. Bush's final year in office was a $162 billion. Now our typical budget deficit is over $1 trillion, as it has been for the past three years.

We have TSA employees acting as gestapo agents and our airports and other public transportation venues. If someone had said that this was what America would look like twenty years ago, they would have been laughed at, but there it is. We have school's insisting on serving our children their lunches, going so far as to seize from students lunches made buy their own parents and thrown away. In fact the government is suggesting that parents model their dinners after school lunches.

The president and his minions seem incapable of telling the truth on any subject and deflect any accusation of wrong doing as -- get this -- lies by the accusers, and our alleged "watchdog press" simply swallows it and in most cases takes the baton and runs with it. The case of the administrations' handling of Fast and Furious is a case in point. Congressman Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, has been trying to get to the bottom of Fast and Furious, only to have Obama shut down the investigation by claiming Executive Privilege, and the media seems content with that. Only Univision has stayed on the story.

After nearly four years of Obama's reign, it is now "unfashionable" to have succeeded in this new version of America. We've had Occupy Wall Street to thank for that. Or perhaps the Obama regime to thank for Occupy Wall Street, but suffice it to say that if you have made it in America, you are now the enemy. Punctuated by Obama's new campaign slogan "Foreward -- a throwback to the Bolshevik Revolution -- the mantra of the left in this country is now how those "bandit billionaires" have too much and how they need to pay their fair share. Frightening stuff.

Not content with fundamentally transforming America, though, Obama has wreaked havoc around the globe through his failed foreign policy agenda. The Middle East is in flames, Israel is on the ropes, with apparently no support, and Europe is going broke. Iran is approaching nuclear capability and boasting at every opportunity how Israel will not survive, all with complete impunity and a welcome in New York at the United Nations.

And our press seems fine with all of it, still actively advocating for another four more years of this. I never thought one man could do so much damage in four years. I've been proven wrong, even with the governing constraints of a potential second term. What could Obama inflict on us without such a hindrance as reelection?  

No, I don't recognize America today. I've been fundamentally transformed enough to last a lifetime, and I want no more of it. Vote for the American in November.
