The US Constitution. The Deliberate Stumbling Block.

By: J. D. Longstreet

You know, every now and then, every American ought to read the US Constitution from beginning to end.  I’d wager that if we did, we would not be living in such a screwed-up country as we have today.

 

One of the things I have learned, over my better than 6 and a half decades on this earth, is that the fellows who wrote the Constitution were quite likely the smartest, most intelligent, men on the entire planet at that time… and… without a doubt… would rank at the top of the intelligentsia today!

 

Funny thing is that back in the 18th century, folks had a tendency to say what they meant and mean what they say.  They had never heard of political correctness, so… they called “a spade a spade”.   When they applied pen to paper, to write their thoughts, they didn’t hem and haw about… they wrote down those words, which illustrated, exactly, their thoughts and their intentions.

 

Now, here’s the thing:  When a person, of even average intelligence today, takes it upon himself, or herself, to read the US Constitution… as those Founding Fathers wrote it… they understand it!  It’s as clear as a bell.

 

Now the question:  Why, then, do we find it so inconvenient today?  Yes, the US Constitution is inconvenient.  To the power brokers in the US, the Constitution is a roadblock.  It is continually getting in the way.  And that is where the US Supreme Court comes in.

 

When an American turns to the Constitution, to learn the duties of the Supreme Court, often he, or she, is surprised at the limits on the Court.  More surprising, still, is the mantel of powers the Court has assumed which the Constitution does not grant the Court!

 

The national powerbrokers learned, long ago that a Supreme Court molded in their likeness, could extend THEIR powers simply by INTERPRETING the Constitution in a manner which would benefit them. To arrive at that beneficial arrangement, the powerbrokers had to see that they determined the make-up of the court… that only those nominees to the Court who favored their biases could be allowed on the court.  That set off a continuing battle between the two sides of the American Political Spectrum, which is near a fever pitch today. 

 

A fairly intelligent high school student can interpret the Constitution.  It is that clearly written.  Yet, today we require a court of nine persons made up of scholars of the law… even though the Constitution does not require one to be a lawyer to serve on the Supreme Court!  Did you know that?

 

Let me give you an example of how simple the Constitution is to interpret:  Article One, section 8 of the Constitution declares that the District of Columbia shall be no larger than ten square miles.  Got that?  Ok, then why, today, is the District of Columbia 98.25 square miles?  Huh?  Oh, you see the constitution was inconvenient when it came to that ten square mile law.

 

The point in all this rambling is… you really ought to acquaint yourself with the US Constitution. When you do, you are going to marvel at how far from the Constitution the US has strayed.

 

May we suggest that you set out to familiarize yourself with the Constitution while you can?  Already, our government is in talks with Mexico and Canada to merge the three countries into a single entity patterned after the European Union.  Once that happens, there is a better than even chance the US Constitution will become subject to whatever passes as a constitution for the North American Union.

We Mourn For a Lost America Today!… by J. D. Longstreet

 black-mourning-ribbon

We mourn the loss of Freedom, Democracy, and America’s position in the world as a Leader. In place of all these, America has chosen SOCIALISM the “Destroyer of Nations”.


I am ashamed of my fellow Americans for giving up their freedom, their constitution, their liberty, everything the Founding Fathers gave us, for so cheap a price.

The disunity of America is now complete. There is nothing left of that which bound us together. The descent of America, into the ash heap of history, has officially begun. The decline will be relatively swift and excruciatingly painful.

 rip-america

May God have Mercy on America, on those who warned “the other people who live in this country”. I cannot use “fellow Americans” as that phrase no longer applies. It has been shredded by the Obama Machine and by the Democratic Party.

 

It is now time to prepare for the descent into anarchy. Providence, it seems, has decided punishment is required for those who have defaced and destroyed this land, formerly under His protection, and done so from within.

 

Please consider the following from the Bible… Revelation 6: 1 – 8

(Rev 6:1-8 NIV) I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, “Come!” {2} I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.

{3} When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” {4} Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other. To him was given a large sword.

{5} When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. {6} Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a day’s wages, and three quarts of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!”

{7} When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” {8} I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

Today we mourn the passing of America. Today America is the democrat Socialist States of America. Today the “pale horse” is loosed on the land.

The Pivot Point in American History.

By J. D. Longstreet

 

When you cut through all the smoke and mirrors and hot air this election is about whether the US will continue to exist as a proud, free, nation, or drop into socialist slavery. When historians look back on this day, they will say it was the day, the point in history, which changed America.  Will America remain free, or will America retreat and surrender to the forces of socialism?  The choice is ours, America. 

 

When the great warrior leader of the Israelites, Joshua, had control handed to him upon Moses’ death, the tribes were bickering among themselves as they approached the very doorstep of the Promised Land.  Finally, Joshua had had enough!  He called them together and challenged them:  “Choose you, this day, whom you will serve!  As for me, and my house, we will serve the Lord!”

 

And so it is that today, Americans are called to choose whom they will serve.  We will choose to commission certain, from among us, to have power over us. This is an awesome thing.  It is voluntary submission. But, it is how a representative republic operates. We must be certain that those we elect are not shallow, empty suits, interested in power for power’s sake.  That will defeat the purpose of our republic.  It will also place this republic in immense danger.

 

Our enemies gather today… and watch.   They pray for Americans to turn the power of this government over to those who will appease them.   Their intention is to conquer the US and they will be happy if the electorate of the US makes it much easier for them to accomplish that mission by electing weak spined, naïve, people to fill the seats of power in our government.

 

If we choose today to turn this government over to those who cannot, for whatever reason, understand this nation is at war for it’s life, then there will be a heavy price to pay.  Just as 9-11, and the two wars which followed, in my opinion, was the price we paid for electing the last democratic administration, we can expect an even heavier price for returning that element to power in the government of the US.

 

As I cast my ballot one week ago today, I thought of my family, of my wife, of my children and my grandchildren.  I was reminded that I have a responsibility to ensure, as far as it is within my power, that they have a guaranteed future as a free people. I could not do that by voting for the Democratic Party.  To vote for the freedom and security of my family I had no choice but to vote for the Republican candidates.

 

You see, I believe Americans have forgotten that for a free nation, national security comes first, above all things. Without the security of our nation, nothing else is possible. Without national security even that which has already been accomplished is in danger.  An unsecure nation can only exist at the mercy of it’s enemies. And that mercy, once extended, and accepted, becomes the chain and the shackles that enslave entire nations.    

 

I believe it was the Apostle Paul who once said:  “It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of God!”  He was, of course, correct.  I am convinced this nation was created, by God, as a beacon for the people of this world.  As such we Americans are answerable to God for our actions as a nation. We are also told, by the scriptures, that God punishes those he loves.   When we act as a God fearing nation, this nation does well.  When we fail, we pay the price.  When we make the right decisions we prosper.  When we make the wrong decisions we suffer.

 

We stand at the precipice of a decision today.  Two choices are presented for us from which to choose. As agents of free will WE must make that decision. Paraphrasing the words of the ancient Israelite warrior prophet Joshua, “America, choose you, this day, whom you will serve”!  Choose wisely, America, choose wisely.

Whatever Happened to Illegal Immigration? … By J. D. Longstreet

Once upon a time in a land far, far, away… illegal Immigration was a serious problem and the legal citizens of that land were up in arms about it. Then the issue disappeared. What happened? Methinks the media happened.

 

Have you wondered why Illegal immigration dropped from the radar screens of the media during the presidential campaign? I have. I suspect many of you have, as well.

 

Where did it go? The illegal aliens are still with us. Some estimates range as high as 20 million illegals here now. Even more illegal immigrants live and work among us every day in the US. We still have a border so wide open that it begs citizens of other countries to steal across it and take up residence in this country. As a result, they are still coming, by day and by night. 

 

Some recent reports in the press indicate that since our financial crisis arose a huge number of illegals have returned to their hones. Let me ask you…doesn’t that validate the argument many of us made that the illegals are not here to become citizens of this great country? We have been saying, all along, they are here for the money. Now that the money has tightened up, and the job market has shrunk, they’re headed back home. 

 

But why aren’t the two candidates for president talking about it? It is my opinion that there is no meaningful difference between the stances on illegal immigration of the two men running for President of the US.

 

If the illegal immigration thing ever does bubble to the top of the discussion between the two men the American voter is not going to like what he hears.

 

For Instance:  Remember that John McCain co-sponsored the Senate immigration bill that would have legalized millions of illegal aliens in the U.S. and McCain still supports what he calls a “sensible” guest-worker program for workers who are in the country without legal documentation.  Once the heat was turned up on the campaign trail he called for strengthening penalties for those who hire undocumented immigrants.  

 

If we go back and look at McCain’s record in the Senate, on illegal Immigration, what we find is very troubling. John McCain has voted in the past to extend social security benefits to illegals who have broken into our country, taken jobs from American citizens, drained the treasuries of our states and local governments by running up welfare costs, overloaded our schools while forcing the local taxpayers to fork over the money to pay for it. Those same illegals have devastated our hospitals, especially the emergency departments, through non-payment of hospital bills, and they have practically crushed our courts and law enforcement organizations with criminal conduct.

 

On the other hand, Obama has voted not to cut off funds to those “sanctuary cities,” and he voted for the Senate immigration overhaul bill. You may recall that bill was supposed to create stronger border controls, but, when you look closely, you find the bill would actually expand the guest-worker program and, over time, legalize millions of undocumented, or illegal immigrant workers, already in the country today. Obama has also sponsored a bill, which would allow states to provide in-state tuition for illegal aliens and he even supports giving driver licenses to illegal aliens.

 

But we aren’t hearing about this today. Why is that? Could it be because neither side wants it brought up? The media, so in the tank for Obama, knows that if they bring it up in relation to John McCain, it opens the door on Obama’s stance on illegal immigration. In other words, you can’t talk about one without talking about the other because there is just not that much difference between them on Illegal Immigration. 

 

So… where does that leave the voter. I’m beginning to think the voter is complicit in all this. There is just no way the American voter can NOT know where these two men stand on illegal immigration. That said, why are so many voters going to vote for a candidate they do not agree with on illegal immigration? Because they feel they have no choice. I suspect the voters in both camps believe they are down to a choice between the lesser of two evils… again. I have to tell you… this is no way to run a country.

Race as an Election Factor … by Alan Caruba

Race as an Election Factor

By Alan Caruba

 

I find it remarkable that so little attention has been paid to the role of race in the 2008 election, especially since, for the first time in the nation’s history, one of the parties has nominated a man who, though biracial, identifies himself as Afro-American or Black.

 

Throughout most of America’s elections, race was a factor, going all the way back to the way opponents of Thomas Jefferson spread rumors of a relationship between him and his slave, Sally Hemmings. Turned out the rumors were true, but Jefferson became our third president anyway.

 

Slavery, a racial issue, would eventually lead to a rupture among the states, much as the Founding Fathers had feared when they created the Constitution to replace the Articles of Confederacy. A Civil War would be fought to settle the matter. What followed was a century of suppression of blacks and a resistance, led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,  that would erupt in the 1960s.

 

A lot of people, following the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, concluded that, at last, America had put the issue of race and bias behind it. Not so. The vast majority of those in poverty today are descendents of those Black Americans who were granted a further layer of protection of their constitutional rights in the 1960s.

 

Add to them a whole new layer of society in the form of a huge influx of illegal aliens, primarily Mexicans and those of Hispanic descent, some of whom were granted citizenship via an amnesty in 1986. A second effort to provide amnesty to an estimated twelve million illegal aliens was defeated in 2006 due to a massive public outcry.

 

In a new book, “Segregation: The Rising Costs for America”, its authors argue that, “By the middle of this century, today’s minorities will constitute half of the U.S. population and that fast-growing population is disproportionately impoverished, ill-housed, poorly educated, and tenuously linked to labor markets.”

 

The book was published just as the financial system of the nation crashed, due almost entirely to laws that required mortgage loans, called sub-prime, be made to minorities in order that they be able to live in homes that it turns out they could not afford. Thus, a liberal program based on the view that the poor have a “right” to live beyond their means has created a crisis that has destroyed several banks and investment firms, and imperiled one of the nation’s largest insurance firms. Much of the value of stocks has been lost as well.

 

This is a financial crisis that is the direct result of a foolish notion that was entirely rooted in race. The problems associated with crime in America are largely rooted in race and the failure to stem the tide of illegal aliens. The nation’s jails are filled with minorities. The costs are measured in the billions.

 

It is one thing to open doors to opportunity. It is quite another to get people to walk through them. In the case of the illegal aliens, even the fences at the border could not keep them out and, once here, made them instant criminals breaking our laws.

 

One man has risen to challenge for the highest position in the land. He has been received by cheering throngs. And he is indisputably Black.

 

I think it would be a great mistake to think that Barack Obama’s racial identity would contribute to a reduction in any of the social problems afflicting America’s Black community. If anything, a Democrat controlled Congress is likely to repeat the same kinds of mistakes that produced the financial crisis.

 

Indeed, just as politicians used race in former times to influence the outcome of an election, Obama is the consummate politician and will do the same. If anything, Obama’s race, if he is elected, could lead to unrealistic expectations and possibly even social unrest.

 

Some may vote for him out of “white guilt” over offenses done to Blacks in a previous era, but no one living today ever owned a slave. Those whites who grew up in the segregated South, as often as not will tell you they were as trapped in its constrictions as Blacks. Most are glad to see the Jim Crow era gone.

 

But in countless ways segregation is not gone and it is practiced every day on a purely voluntary basis. Watch how students segregate themselves by race in a high school cafeteria. Watch how their parents segregate themselves by race when they attend church on Sunday.  Watch how the two races tend to congregate in largely separate sections of a community.

 

Segregation or human nature? Discrimination or the choice of people to live among those who share their race, their heritage, their values, their culture?  There’s a reason one can visit San Francisco’s or New York’s famed China Towns. Depending on where you live, tides of Russians, Indians, and of course Hispanics have created their own “towns.”

 

Remember, too, that even in Congress, there is a Black Caucus.

 

Race will surely be a factor in the 2008 election. It will be a factor long after.

Why I Believe McCain Will Lose

Why I Believe McCain Will Lose

By:  J. D. Longstreet

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

 

There is a lot of dejection in the ranks of the Republican Party these days.  As the rank and file of the GOP looks at the disparaging poll numbers the fear is growing that McCain will not be able to close the gap on Obama before Election Day. 

 

 

Conservatives, never happy with, nor ever quite sure of McCain’s chances in the first place, yet willing to hold their noses and cast a ballot for him in a desperate attempt to thwart the leftist agenda Obama will carry with him into the Oval Office, are the MOST discouraged, it seems to me.

 

Since the 2000 election campaign, we here at IoF have declared that John McCain will never be President of the United States. We still believe that.

 

Conservative voters have been loath to support the McCain ticket.  Without the support of conservatives a GOP candidate can forget victory in a Presidential campaign.  Without that conservative support there is no “fire” in the campaign. The fighting spirit, which rests almost entirely with conservatives on the right, simply is not there. You cannot have missed the lack of zest and zeal in the McCain Campaign.  You don’t see it because… it isn’t there.

 

Even those conservatives who have vowed to support McCain after he brought Palin on board have withheld total commitment. Their heart is just not in it.

 

Since day one of the campaign for the oval office 2008 conservatives have scratched their collective heads in wonderment at the candidates the GOP wheeled out for our inspection.  At first, we thought it was a bad joke.  Then, it was rumored that the upper echelons in the party were saying they didn’t need conservative support to win the White House. We KNEW the party was in serious trouble at that moment.

 

There has been a tug of war within the GOP since the conservative take-over in the mid 1990’s. The resentment of the bluebloods and the country club Republicans toward the K-Mart Republicans has been palpable. You see… we conservatives are something of an embarrassment to them.  For the most part they are the moderate to liberal branch of the GOP.  (Oh, yes.  Just as there are conservative democrats there are liberal republicans.)  Unfortunately, the liberal republicans carry with them that “liberal guilt” just the same as their democrat counterparts.  I am of the opinion there is nothing so dangerous to the country as liberal guilt no matter if the liberal is republican or democrat.

 

On the other side of the political spectrum the democrat party is not really a “party”.  It is more an amalgamation of victim’s groups, bound together in their perceived victimhood, seeking redress from the government. They have been thus for a very long time and, in that time, have forged a bond between them in order to attain their goals. It is quite different in the GOP.

 

In the Republican Party, the differences between the two main groups, the liberals and the conservatives, is much wider… and… that gap can never be closed… even temporarily in order to secure victory.  Conservatives can never compromise their core beliefs.  Even an attempt is doomed to failure.  The instant conservatives make an attempt to compromise; they are no longer conservative. You can see the problem.

 

And that, dear reader, is why I continue to call for a solely conservative political party.  The infighting within the GOP is not going to cease until conservatives leave. Of course, the moment conservatives DO leave; the GOP will be relegated to the backbenches in Congress for a hundred years, or more.

 

The McCain Campaign has been a lost cause from the beginning. Apparently McCain thought he could replace conservative support with the support of Independent voters. That was never very likely because such a large percentage of independent voters are conservative voters who, for one reason or the other, left the two dominant political parties.  No matter who chose that course, McCain or his advisors, in my opinion, it was unwise and it may well cost him this election. In the long run, however, conservatives may benefit from the GOP loss in November.

 

Why?

 

There is a major firestorm coming, nationally and internationally. There will be epiphanies by the bundles landing on the doorsteps of naïve American voters in the next few years.  The cost of living in the US is going to skyrocket upwards along with taxes and new laws and regulations the likes of which we have never seen before.  Add to that the spread of Islamofacism and the accompanying wars and rumors of wars and the ever-increasing drain on our treasury to fight those wars, here at home as well as in foreign lands, and you begin to get the picture.

 

Conservatives have been warning of the multitude of festering boils about to erupt but… nobody wanted to listen.  In a few months reality will set in and with it a slow awakening.  By then, of course, the US Ship of State will have sailed and like any ship it will take an interminably long time to turn it around and set it’s course aright.  If, and it is a big “IF”, we are able to overcome what is headed our way, and begin a successful program of reconstruction, the country may find it necessary to turn to conservative leadership in order to rebuild the country and rehabilitate what will surely be a decimated military and a dispirited citizenry.

 

For a number of years now, decades even, there has been a growing sense, in the human psyche, that something dark and foreboding is on the threshold. I have felt it and now I sense its growing strength and it’s growing inevitability.  In my opinion, there are extremely dark times ahead for America… just months ahead, in fact.  We will be sorely tried, perhaps, as never before. What is even more troubling, to me, is my concern that we cannot turn back, nor can we influence what is about to happen. It is far too late. The dye is cast. Now we can only watch and wait and do whatever is necessary to survive as a nation.

Are the Dems Celebrating Too Soon?

Are the Dems Celebrating Too Soon?

Is Celebrating a Disaster Wrong?

By; J. D. Longstreet

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

I was thinking the other day as I read, listened to, and watched all the dismal poll data showing the republican candidate for president down and falling in the polls… where have I seen this before? Well, it didn’t take long to find out. It was the Reagan/Carter race back in the 1980 election. As unlikely as it may seem, looking back on it from this vantage point, that race was a cliffhanger until less than 72 hours before the vote. And then the dam burst for Reagan.

John Zogby, of the Zogby Poll says, in an article in the Boston Herald that he doesn’t think Obama has “closed the deal” with voters yet. You can read the article at:

http://news.bostonherald.com/news/2008/view.bg?articleid=1124117&srvc=2008campaign&position=8

Conservatives fault McCain for not having closed the deal himself. Many of us feel that McCain could have, and should have, run a much more aggressive campaign than he has so far. The Obama campaign has handed the McCain camp campaign issues McCain could have easily used against Obama and yet, he hasn’t used them. That failure to attack has created a load of consternation among conservatives. Some leading lights in the conservative camp are saying that conservatives will have to drag McCain over the line to victory on Election Day if he is to win. Understand… McCain still doesn’t have the conservative republicans in his pocket. They are in Palin’s pocket… not McCain’s.

Along about this time in 2000, if memory serves, the pollsters had Gore approximately 11 points ahead in the polls. In 2004, right wing radio talkers were saying the race was Kerry’s to lose… and yet, Bush won both. Go figure.

There is a different feel to this election campaign than others I have experienced. And I have experienced a LOT of presidential elections. I blame much of that on my own disappointment in the American electorate. One likes to think his fellow Americans are smarter than they, in fact, are. I am disappointed at how easily the electorate is herded toward a candidate who, no matter how you consider his credentials is absolutely not qualified to be president of a country, certainly not this country. And yet, uneducated as they are about the issues of the day, they bite the bait, and drink the kool-aid, and fall in step behind a candidate who is leading them to… who knows what? They certainly do not know!

At the risk of sounding like a pamphleteer in the pre-Revolutionary days in American… these are perilous times. To be absolutely honest with you, who in their right mind would want to be President considering what the next President will have facing him the moment he takes his hand off the Bible at the swearing in. (You DO know he is already sworn in before we actually see him take the oath…right? Oh, yeah, that is done quietly, out of sight of the public.) The nation is at war, and no matter what any candidate tells you, no matter what any political party tells you, that is not going to change anytime soon. We are not going to be able to disengage our troops from the Middle East no matter how much howling goes up from the left. It ain’t gonna happen. That fact alone means a world of hurt for Obama, with his constituency, should he win. The economy is shot to hell, and we are looking at decades of recovery time. Guess who will get the blame for that slow recovery… no matter who the left tries to pin that on. If McCain wins all this blame is going to fall on him.

Now, at the risk of sounding like a prophet of doom… I don’t think the economic slide is nearly over yet. Rumors are floating around that other huge manufacturers will go belly-up next year if they don’t receive billions more of taxpayer money to bail them out. Here in my own neck of the woods a large employer, an international company based in the US, is closing the local plant and laying off 400 employees the first of December, just before Christmas. (A heck of a Christmas gift, what?) Having been through these economic slowdowns before, a number of times while managing a business myself, and trying to keep it afloat, experience tells me this is going to take time… and before it is over… a lot of Americans are going to be hurt. Care to venture a guess as to whom they are going to take that anger out on? You got it! The new President will be at the center of that bull’s eye.

Another thing, should Obama win, where, pray tell, is he going to get all that money necessary to implement all those new programs he is promising? See, the money is gone… and then some! Can you say… TAXES! Taxes on big business? Are you aware that currently the US has the highest corporate taxes of any nation on earth? Would you be surprised if big business began pulling out of the US and taking their operations over to, oh, say, China, where, in some circumstances, they are offering NO corporate taxes for companies that relocate to China.

These are all important issues voters absolutely must consider before casting that ballot in November. If you are reading this it means that you are one of the Americans who cares about what is going on today and how a wrong decision at the polling place will impact your future and the future of your family, your neighbors, and your nation.

One thing is for certain. This is not the time in the history of this country to elect a novice to the office of President of the United States. The wolves are circling just waiting to learn how Americans vote. The wrong vote will bring them bounding in to devour the poor, unsuspecting, newly elected, quite likely overwhelmed, leader of a nation in dire straits.

Yes, we have the strongest, best equipped, and best-trained military in the world. But it is simply not nearly large enough to meet such a challenge. We are going to need, and I hate to say it, a military draft to at least double, preferably triple, the size of the standing military we have today. That will cost billions, even trillions, more money.

I do not doubt that America will pull out of this mess, but it is going to cost money and worse… it is going to cost American blood. But…we have no choice. These things weigh heavily on the minds of thinking Americans who understand the danger in which this country currently finds itself. I don’t worry about how they will cast their ballots. No, those who worry me are the unthinking, the unknowing voter, those ruled by emotion, those blinded by race, by perceived slights, real or unreal, slights they feel have been done them by their fellow Americans,  who will take this opportunity to cast a ballot in angry protest no matter the cost to themselves or their country. They do not seem to understand, or they simply do not care, that they will be the first segment of American society to be hurt, if not destroyed, by the pain and anguish brought by a wrong decision at the ballot box in November. That’s what worries me as the election draws ever nearer.

The Last Election

The Last Election.

By  J. D. Longstreet

 

We are fast approaching the general election, in November, here in the United States. For those of you outside the US, this is “The Big One”. This is the election we hold every four years to decide the direction the United States will take for the next four years, at the very least. Every time one of these elections rolls around we bill it as the most important election… ever. And that is true. Every last one of these elections is, in fact, the most important election in the United States… EVER.

But this 2008 election could be the election that shuts down the greatest experiment in democracy ever to be tried in the history of this planet.

Why?

Because, this time around, Americans are deciding whether they wish to remain free, or, if they really wish to enslave themselves, and their neighbors, in the morass of soul rotting socialism. All indicators, at the moment, say that Americans are prepared to give up freedom, next month, for the false promise(s) of socialism.

Now, understand this: for those of us who pay attention to history and to world events… we have come to KNOW, deep down, where we live,  that socialism equals slavery. You can parse it anyway you like… but in the end… we believe socialism and slavery are the same thing… at least the results of both are the same.

So… why are the masses trailing after the candidate many of us closely associate with socialism begging for anything from him, a glance,  a raised eyebrow, a wave of the hand, maybe a touch… anything? The bottom line is: ignorance.

We have at least two generations of Americans who have been taught in America’s public education system that socialism is a good thing. It is a fair thing. It is an equitable thing. Of course it is none of those, but, you see, in their ignorance they believe it is… and they want it! They’re looking for handouts; they’re looking for freebies from the government. That alone demonstrates their utter lack of knowledge about government, what it is and how it works. They don’t understand, or they don’t care, that the US government has no money of it’s own. Which, of course, means that money must be taken from someone else to give to those with their hands out. The source of the money the government hands out is the American taxpayer. That’s you and me, our neighbors, little business and big business.

In the socialist movement, in America today, there is a partition dividing the two classes within the movement. On one side of the partition are the pawns. They are the “needy” ones.  The voters who want something from the government, such as socialized healthcare.  The leftist candidate, and those clinging to him, as well as a large block of voters from the right side of the political spectrum make up the bulk of that division. On the opposite side of the partition are the “super elite” running this scam on the ignorant American voters amongst the vast American electorate, both left and right. The reach and influence of this “super elite” is so vast that it includes controlling political candidates so naïve they actually believe THEY (The candidates) are in control and will be in control should they actually win their respective elections. In fact, it is the “super elite” pulling the strings. The “super elite” are the manipulators. They are often referred to as “The Shadow Government”.

 

Read the following quote carefully:  “It is becoming increasingly apparent to American citizens that government is no longer being conducted in accordance with the U.S. Constitution, or, within states, according to state constitutions. While people have recognized for more than 150 years that the rich and powerful often corrupt individual officials, or exert undue influence to get legislation passed that favors their interests, most Americans still cling to the naive belief that such corruption is exceptional, and that most of the institutions of society, the courts, the press, and law enforcement agencies, still largely comply with the Constitution and the law in important matters. They expect that these corrupting forces are disunited and in competition with one another, so that they tend to balance one another.

 

Mounting evidence makes it clear that the situation is far worse than most people think, that during the last several decades the U.S. Constitution has been effectively overthrown, and that it is now observed only as a façade to deceive and placate the masses. What has replaced it is what many call the Shadow Government.”  (From: “The Shadow Government”.  You’ll find it at:

Take a step back and look at the candidates we have running for President of the US today. How often have you asked yourself… “Is this the best my party could offer for the extremely important office of President of the United States?”  I have certainly asked it of myself, and I’d venture a guess that you have, as well, both republican and democrat.  Is it not obvious to you that something is amiss?  We KNOW there are men and women far more qualified for president than those on the tickets of the Democratic and Republican parties. If you are honest with yourself, do you not, just a tiny bit, suspect a set-up?  HAVE we been set up?

 

And why socialism?  Simple really.  Democracy, even the kind of democracy we have in this representative republic, just gets in the way of the super elite, “the shadow government”.  I am convinced they want it gone.  In it’s place they will install “Central Planning”. Central planning is at the core of any socialist government.  So… for the “powers that be” to be able to exercise unrestrained control they need socialism in America.

 

Government control of the financial markets is must for central planning to be successful.  Last week we gave the US government effective control of our financial markets.  Do you see a pattern emerging here?  (And I haven’t even mentioned the ongoing efforts toward a North American Union.)

 

I think it is fair, even timely, to ask:  Is this the last election?  Honestly, I don’t have the answer to that. Too much is yet unknown.  But enough is known and enough is suspected that American voters, of a right, ought to be extremely concerned over the direction in which we are been herded like sheep. I, for one, resent it and I, for one, want my country back.

America, Here Is Your Warning!

A Warning to America!   by: J. D. Longstreet

Sometimes it is necessary, in order to get an objective look at a problem, to rely on the conclusion of someone detached, someone far enough away from the problem to see the “big picture”.  Sort of like the expression, “you can’t see the forest for the trees”, we American may be too close to our own problem(s) to actually SEE them.  Well, someone, far enough away, half a world away, actually, has taken a look and has seen America’s problem and has even written a warning to the people of America about it.  Her Nome de plume, or pseudonym, is Gemma Meyer.  Ms. Meyer is, or was, in fact, a journalist in South Africa.  She is married to a former “conservative” member of the South African Parliament.  When she wrote this piece, back in 2005, she was still living in the country of South Africa. 

 

The title of Ms. Meyer’s article is: “A Warning for America from South Africa”.  It is right on target. As you read Ms. Meyer’s work, you will recognize the things she warms America about.  You can’t help yourself.  It’s all there… right in front our eyes, but, for the most part, Americans simply don’t see them.    Well, that’s not exactly true.  SOME of us see them.  SOME of us TRY to sound a warning, ourselves, to our fellow Americans but we are shouted down, called every vile name in the book, castigated publicly, and generally “made fun of”. Nevertheless, America’s problems persist, frankly, because of the blindness of the majority of Americans.  Make that: “willful blindness”  for nothing else comes close to explaining how we have allowed this to happen to our beloved country.

 

I’d like to recommend that you read Ms. Meyer’s article and see for yourself just how “on target” she really is.  You’ll find it at:

 

http://davidbenariel.wordpress.com/2007/03/09/a-warning-for-america-from-south-africa/

 

Did you catch yourself glancing, from time to time, to the top of the article to assure yourself of the date it was written?  I did.  It was written three years ago. I couldn’t help but feel a certain sense of, well, desperation, to realize that since she wrote this piece America has had three more years of circling the drain.

 

When is America going to wake up?  WILL she wake up? Will she wake up in time?  Or, will time run out?  We have been sliding down that slippery slope at an every increasing velocity since the 1960’s.  We’re not losing our freedom.  We’re not losing our country.  No.  We’re giving it all away.  

 

We have compromised and compromised until we have little left to compromise.  Yet, we have two presidential candidates, right now, who are BOTH believers in compromise.  They make a big deal of their willingness to compromise.  What is needed is the testosterone to stand up on our two feet, like men, and shake our fist in the face of our enemies and say, NO MORE!  This is it!  We are done giving you what you want just to be left along in our comfortable little cocoons. 

 

The wolves have been gathering in an ever-tightening circle.  They are closing in one step at a time.  And we Americans don’t see it.  Instead we continue to feed them while telling ourselves if we give them what they want they will be our friends. We have chosen to forget one of the laws of Nature.  Wolves are what wolves are.  They do what wolves do. Even a wolf, thought to be domesticated, is liable to turn and leap for the throat of the person who supposes he is the wolf’s master.  Yes, wolves do as wolves have always done… because they ARE wolves.

 

America’s enemies are gathered against us.  They are tightening the circle. Even now they are among us. Sadly, a look in the mirror will reveal the identity of America’s worst enemies.

America’s Unsecured Borders.

Posted in America, Illegal Immigration, Secure the US Border with Mexico, UN/One World Government by J. D. Longstreet on August 8, 2008

America NEEDS Borders!

 

A country cannot call itself a “sovereign” country if it is not in control of its borders. A country cannot claim control of its territory IF it DOES NOT control its borders.

 

I am of the opinion, and have been for a few years now, that there is a movement afoot within the government of this country(?) to do away with borders entirely. It is a “globalist” movement.  It is the nutty idea that we are all brothers and sisters and we are one country (You know… “We are the world”…), not the 194 countries recognized AS countries by the US State Department today.

 

I am referred to often, by those who disagree with me, as being a “nationalist”.  I plead guilty.  I AM a nationalist… and proud of it!

 

Back in the days of yore, when I went to school, we students DID stand at our desks, hands over hearts, and recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag EVERY morning. Before the school system had an intercom system all students met for “morning assembly” in the school’s auditorium.  It was there we recited the Pledge of Allegiance, and then, the principal would read a bit of scripture and we all recited the Lord’s Prayer”…and then… we began out studies.  We KNEW OUR country was America… the United States of America.  There was no confusion about it.  We knew where the borders were and we knew why they were there… and, again, we KNEW WE were AMERICANS!   And we were PROUD!

 

The past couple of generations of American “scholars” haven’t been that fortunate. They are confused about who and what they are. They have no problem with outsiders sneaking across those invisible lines to our north and south… not to mention the eastern and western borders with their white sands and rocky outcroppings.

 

Seems to me there is a distinct lack of “belonging” amongst the baby-boomers and their offspring.  It is sad, really. 

 

Everyone NEEDS to belong.  It is a part of being a human being. But, there is also a reason we have tribes and clans and families and, yes, COUNTRIES.  The need to belong, though strong, is simply not strong enough to encompass a world, any world.  Embracing the world as your family is one of those liberal, feel good, warm and fuzzy philosophies that is, well, awfully nice to sit around, taking deep drags from a self rolled tetrahydrocannabinol cigarette (POT!) and mindfully musing while contemplating your navel. Other than that, it is totally worthless.

 

Our friends on the left have been dismantling families and clouding the meaning of the word “family” in a successful attempt to disconnect us from the nucleus of society.

 

Now, I am not a frequent visitor to the conspiracy theory farm, where those things are grown, but occasionally, a new thought springs fourth, unbidden, and it seems to have some validity.  Currently, I have begun to look askance at the possibility of a movement to merge all the world’s nations into a single global community. Of, course that would, of necessity, require a central government.  That is to say… a one-world government. To make it possible, one must first disconnect those he wishes to reconnect to a world community, from their most important connection, and that is… their family. How?  You redefine family.  And that is what has happened. 

 

Now, how has this any effect on what is happening on America’s southern border?  Well, I refer you to the second paragraph of this piece… where you will find the words: “nutty idea”. 

 

There is undeniably a movement underway, in our government, to merge the three countries of the North American continent (Mexico, The US, and Canada) into a single entity. We know this, although all parties concerned vehemently deny it.  Allowing a free flow of citizens of all three countries, back and forth across the borders, will only hasten the day when we Americans will perceive our borders as, well, unnecessary.  I mean, why have borders when we have become one “super-country” anyway? Forgive my paranoia here if I sniff a conspiracy in the works!

 

I would remind you, the ONLY reason our southern border is being abused by our neighbors to the south is simply because the US Government wants them to do exactly what they are doing, flowing into our country in a virtual human tsunami which has already supplanted the largest minority in the country, African-Americans, and moved them into second place. The Latinos are now the number one minority in the US. 

 

If the US government wanted the southern border secured they could do it… almost overnight.  We have the means and the materiel.  What we do NOT have is a government with the will to do it. It is as simple as that.

 

I have warned a number of times that eventually the citizens of this country will take matters into their own hands as they have done so many times in the country’s history.  When that happens, it will not be pretty, and it will most likely lead to a confrontation between the US Military and US Civilians. As I said… it will not be pretty.

 

I wish I could offer a solution.  I mean, a solution that would solve the problem without violence.  But each day that passes without the US government doing its duty by securing our borders, especially our southern border, only increases the momentum of the coming violent conflict along the southern border.
