Two quick points:
- I think that "the blood is in the water" and the patriotic, upper echelon, federal civil servants are going to be coming forward with more and more damning emails. This is just my feelings but I truly believe that the level of disgust with this administration is going to produce enough information to deny Obama the remainder of his term. Think about what may come out of the EPA. Those folks ride rough-shod over farmers and ranchers, especially out west. No telling what conspiracies are afoot within their organization. The NSA, FBI and CIA are obvious treasure troves.
- Much of the turmoil within the country stems from the subversion of our political, judicial and legal systems by foreign oil money, primarily that from Saudi Arabia, cascading into the coffers of the political class. The money reaches down to the state level and, in some instances, influences local politics. If we are ever to right this ship, we have to get the foreign influence out of the process. I've heard some predictions of how significant the shale fracking will be to our energy picture.
But, just one decision like Obama made to reject the Keystone pipeline lead to a 20% increase in oil imports from Saudi in 2011. That decision also meant that Obama's friend Warren Buffet stood to rake in revenue from transporting that same oil in his Burlington Northern tank cars! Funny how that happened.....
I confess. I am an Enemy of the State.
I didn’t realize how threatening my mere presence was to my beloved country, but having been shown the evidence against me in U.S. Army training manuals, Homeland Security reports, and now this administration’s Enemies Hit List given to the IRS in order to persecute people like me, I feel compelled to come clean.
In my defense, however, I would like to explain that when I was growing up I was taught, in public schools mind you, to pray in Jesus name at the start of each day. Everyone seemed to understand that we were a Christian nation as declared by our Founding Fathers and affirmed by numerous Supreme Court decisions. As such, we were expected to know right from wrong and act accordingly.
We were expected to pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the REPUBLIC for which it stands. Naturally, you can understand my confusion as we are now called a “democracy”. For those of you who are confused by that, a Republic is a system of government that constrains a majority from siding against a minority by the Rule of Law which is applied to all equally.
We were taught how to think not what to think and we had Debate Clubs to sharpen our critical thinking skills. Now, from the IRS Hit LIST, “Independent” types are held suspect. Now our schools are trying to raise ‘sheep’ that are taught “Political Correctness”. They maintain this mind control through inculcating “peer pressure”. I grew up believing that peer pressure was a bad thing so I chose to Home School my kids. My bad. That’s on the IRS’s list of “No-No’s” too.

A mockery has been made of the country, and of the office of the so-called-president.
The actions of Emperor Hussein Obama are clearly a detriment to the great United States - and he should be held accountable.
by John P. Kuchta Jr.
I have two words to explain the treasonous behavior of this President and his flunkies: Saudi Arabia.
The level of Saudi cash cascading into the coffers of the political class is beyond the grasp of mortal men.
Why do you think that Mohamed “Fat Boy” Magid, President of ISNA, is invited to the White House for dinner and to the State Department to hear Obama’s “Borders” speech railing against Israel?
All the more remarkable when you consider that ISNA was named as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the Holy Land Foundation terror trial in Dallas back in 2008.
That means a man who heads an organization with links to Hamas named by a federal judge, goes to eat dinner with the President.
Just how much money do you think that takes?
How much did it cost Saudi to have Abdul Alharbi, a Saudi citizen, taken completely out of the investigation into the Boston bombings?
This young man was on a “No Fly” list but managed to get a student visa to the US anyway. He was supposed to attend Findlay College in Ohio; but, he lived in Boston!
He was tackled by an onlooker at the Boston Marathon as he ran from the bombing scene. He quickly went from being a suspect to a witness to poof, disappeared!
How much did that cost the Saudis after meetings between Obama, the Saudi Foreign Minister and the Saudi Ambassador to the US?
The Presidency is for sale, just like Obama learned in Chicago! Follow the money!
“Remember Benghazi and ALL the Traitors!”
By Ben Krause
[Mr. Krause worked as a special contractor officer for the State Department rebuilding program for Iraq. Among other things he oversaw construction of prisons and training of police.]
The United States and the Coalition Forces, together with many other volunteers have tried to help Iraq make a transition from a dictatorship to a new form of government that will be decided by the Iraqis. The press predominately reports only bad news and there are even advocates for the U.S. “losing” in Iraq. Regardless of the outcome, it will be said that many people tried to help Iraq by giving their life, time, talents and treasure.
Regardless of the reasons for invading Iraq, history will determine whether it was a good idea or not. There is no question that Saddam was evil, wasted those opposed to him and squandered the national treasure. Once the U.S. became responsible for the operation of the country, many mistakes were made. The U.S. does not often conduct such operations and is not normally organized to take a country from a dictatorship to a democracy or other similar elected types of government. The resulting effort displayed all the problems of stovepipe organizations, lack of overall coordination, not including the Iraqis in construction/reconstruction planning and execution, etc.
Given all these challenges, some of the shining lights were and are the people who volunteered to help in Iraq, including Iraqis who put their life on the line for positive actions. I am familiar with a few. I know there are thousands more. Each helping, positive action is part of history, each effort no matter how small deserves recognition and, from first hand experience, the positive actions made and are making a difference.

Is it embarrassing for the anti-terror folks within the federal government to have a man flying in and out of this country to terror hotbeds like Dagestan and Chechnya and not so much as have a parking ticket placed under his windshield wiper?
The left hand didn’t know what the right hand was doing and people were blown up. Were both the CIA and the FBI directed to keep the contacts from Russia to themselves?
We may never know the truth about that possibility; but, when looked at through the prism of treatment of the Saudi citizen, Abdul Rahman Ali Halbari, it certainly appears that may be the case.

Regardless of how one feels about the recent transportation law, all agree it will pour over $1 billion of year into Virginia's aging transportation infrastructure and should build necessary capacity to meet our growing infrastructure needs.
You might recall the peaceful demonstrations of the Iranian people several years back. They were shot in the streets by the leadership, but how would the landscape have changed if they had succeeded in overthrowing the government? Very little because in the Muslim culture, the people are not the power.
The truth is, there is no such thing as anarchy. Whenever people have succeeded in overthrowing a government, the most powerful coalition moves in to fill the void. Consider Iran, Libya, Egypt, Syria, and Saudi Arabia. Then think Shiite (Iran), Sunni (Libya & Egypt), Alawite (Syria), and Wahabi (Saudi Arabia). These are the power groups, and they are all brutal, intolerant, and determined. It does not matter who wins because none fight for democracy – they fight for theocratic control.
Islam is designed as a political power, not just a religion. Unlike New Testament evangelism, Muhammad's example was conquest, not merely conversion. Hence the term "utterly subdued", and his well-documented massacre of 900 Jews in Medina who rejected his authority. Muhammad also made peace treaties to stall for time until he was sufficiently positioned to overcome his enemies. Does that tactic sound familiar when it comes to the PLO, Hezbollah, and Hamas?
Finally, look at the results of our past efforts in Iran and Egypt with the Shah and Mubarrak. Maybe it aided our access to oil for a time, but that also distracted us from pursuing energy independence. Maybe it calmed down some tensions with Israel, but that was a peace short-lived. It ultimately provided opportunities for powerful factions to position themselves for conquest, especially the Muslim Brotherhood which has become predominant throughout the region. Their goal is a unification of Islamic nations under Sharia law against all other nations and religions. This is their manifest destiny: the global caliphate.
The only reasonable course in foreign policy is to distance ourselves from the internal conflicts of such cultures and prepare for the coming cataclysm. We should definitely not be equipping any of them with weapons to eventually turn against us (as has often been the case), or funding them with subsidies to their tenacious crusades. Remember, it was our nation's founders who affirmed that our system of government and culture can only succeed with a people of morality, education, and biblical values – all severely lacking in the ruthless Muslim countries. We will either prevail by our values, or yield to their alternatives. Let us focus our resolve on the destiny of America and Israel, and leave the barbaric sects to fight among themselves.
