The Obama Cult of Personality Marches On

The video below is just another great video from The Naked Emperor.

I originally found it on Hot Air in an entry by Ed Morrissey.

The creepiness factor continues to rise.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

One bright and shining Obama cult member thought it would be a good idea to list on her public Obama page, the names, addresses and phone number of those she had recruited.

You Might Be A Militia Member If…

There is a document online titled MIAC Strategic Reported, The Modern Militia Movement. It is dated February 2nd of this year on is reportedly a document from the state of Missouri Information Analysis Center and Missouri State Highway Patrol.

I first heard about this on the Glenn Beck radio show if you have access to his podcast it is hour 2 for 3.19.09.

Kansas City Star

A new document meant to help Missouri law enforcement agencies identify militia members or domestic terrorists has drawn criticism for some of the warning signs mentioned.

The Feb. 20 report called "The Modern Militia Movement" mentions such red flags as political bumper stickers for third-party candidates, such as U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, who ran for president last year; talk of conspiracy theories, such as the plan for a superhighway linking Canada to Mexico; and possession of subversive literature. […]

But state law enforcement officials said the report is being misinterpreted. […]

"All this is an educational thing," Hotz said of the report. "Troopers have been shot by members of groups, so it’s our job to let law enforcement officers know what the trends are in the modern militia movement."

I’m sure Lt. Hotz of the Missouri State Highway Patrol is genuinely concerned for his fellow troopers. The problem, to me, isn’t that law enforcement profiles, it is some of the persons and organizations profiled.

Some identify “markers” of a potential Militia member are:

  • Those who are against the Ammunition Accountability Act. Basically the act would require an serial number be engraved upon all ammunition.
  • Those who anticipate the economic collapse of the US government. Given our current economic situations, I imagine many persons believe that there could be an economic collapse.
  • Those who worry a Constitutional Convention could take place and result in the repeal of the 1st and 2nd amendment. A Con Con would allow for the alteration of the United States Constitution either by adding to or removing from the constitution. There has been a move towards a Con Con for sometime, if it ever took place then it is possible that any amendment could be removed.
  • Those who are concerned about the possibility of a North American Union or a New World Order. I believe both a NAU and a NWO are real possibilities. I have read many news articles over the past year in which various world leaders have either called for a NWO or suggested that one might be needed. Gordon Brown has pushed the idea several times. I understand of course that how he defines a NWO and how I define one may differ greatly.
  • Those who are concerned about a Universal Service Program.
  • Tax resistors.
  • Militant Abortion. By this they mean militant pro-lifers. The documents speaks strictly about those pro-lifers who “take up arms”. Having had been active in the pro-life movement for years, I assure you that the police consider those who take up placards to also be militant pro-lifers. 
  • Those who use short wave radio for communication purposes.
  • Committees of Safety. Organizations established to lobby government officials and confront corruption.
  • Those against the Federal Reserve.
  • Members of 3rd parties. Specifically mentioned are supporters of Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin and Bob Barr.
  • Anti-government propaganda. Those who display pictures, cartoons, bumper stickers that contain anti-government rhetoric.
  • Those who are anti-immigration. Very broad term. I am anti-illegal immigration and think our government has not simply dropped the ball, but dropped it and kicked it over the fence. I am not anti-legal immigration.

The above just a sampling from the document. Many of the persons mentioned in the document likely should be considered dangerous, but much of the document describes everyday normal Americans.

So remember, if any of the above bullet points describe you, you may be considered by the state of Missouri as a threat.

 

4 Economic Laws

In this time of bailouts and “stimulus” packages an economic reminder from W. Cleon Skousen, author of The 5,000 Year Leap; Principles of Freedom 101, is clearly over due.

There are four laws of economic freedom which a nation must maintain if its people are to prosper at the maximum level.

  1. The freedom to try
  2. The freedom to buy
  3. The freedom to sell
  4. The freedom to fail

Simple yes?

Under the current administration three of the four of these freedoms will vanish if the administration continues on the course it is currently following.

Of the four, one will remain, and that will be the freedom to fail. However, it will no longer be mere freedom, the current course of things taken to its logical conclusion will make failure almost unavoidable which then will make success unachievable for most.

I frankly feel blessed of God to live in a nation where personal economic failure is a real possibility [rather than a likelihood], because it means economic success is also a very real possibility.

The Second Bill of Rights

Ever heard of it?

I hadn’t until yesterday (brought to my attention by @greenbacker via Twitter), it seemingly is a concept that has been around for sometime, first presented by FDR during his 1944 State of the Union address.

A second bill of rights would theoretically consist of the following:

Associated Content

  • The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation
  • The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living
  • The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad
  • The right of every family to a decent home
  • The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health
  • The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment
  • The right to a good education

For all the effort Barack Obama has been putting into making himself appear as though he were a modern Abraham Lincoln, the fact is that he [Obama] is far closer in ideology to FDR.

Barack Obama is a big government guy who made it clear during the election that he believes in the communist/socialist idea of redistributing wealth (recall that Obama said in an interview he believed the Supreme Court should involve itself in wealth redistribution and economic justice).

We have reason to worry, based upon the words of Obama and based upon the persons he has placed about him, that a ‘second bill of rights’ is not something the messiah would reject out of hand.

In fact Cass Sunstein, one time Constitutional advisor to Barack Obama as well as his current pick for regulatory czar, has advocated FDR’s concept of a second bill of rights.

A new set of rights guaranteed and no responsibility required, that is, entitlement.

Entitlement, guaranteed benefits provided by the government which require nothing of the recipient. We are already an entitlement society, we maybe moving further into that concept.

We currently teeter on the edge of becoming a fully dependent  society, Obama and his administration may well push us over the edge. At the end of four years we could find ourselves more European than Europe.

Barack Obama, His Perpetual Campaign And Beyond

Washington Post

As President, I will need the help of all Americans to meet the challenges that lie ahead," Obama said in a video message e-mailed to supporters (and reporters) this morning. "That’s why I’m asking people like you who fought for change during the campaign to continue fighting for change in your communities.

When first reading of this organization, which is being called “Barack Obama 2.0”, I simply thought it to be the foundation of a perpetual campaign. I believe my first impression was mistaken, it looks to be much more than that.

L.A. Times

People familiar with the plan say Obama’s team would use the network in part to pressure lawmakers — particularly wavering Democrats — to help him pass complex legislation on the economy, healthcare and energy.

[…]

Though the plan still is emerging, one source with knowledge of the internal discussion said the organization could have an annual budget of $75 million in privately raised funds. Another said it would deploy hundreds of paid staff members — possibly one for every congressional district in certain politically important states and even more in larger battlegrounds

I find the above more crafty than disturbing, while the following I find irksome as well as foreboding.

L.A. Times

In what would be another unprecedented step, Obama’s political staff is deciding whether to create a service organization that would use the vast corps of its grass-roots campaign supporters. As described by one source knowledgeable with the discussions, this nonprofit arm would be used to help victims of natural disasters, but would do so under the Obama umbrella while continuing to build the overall network’s massive e-mail database.
The prospect of a president being able to guide a service or relief agency outside the framework of his government is a unique development.

A political party with one central figure who leads not just the nation or a particular political body, but also leads a group which holds more loyalty to a man than to party or country.

 

Our European Transformation Is Mere Day’s Away

This evening President George W. Bush gave what is likely his last presidential speech, his farewell address.

I was not a big fan of GWB.

I do not find him to be a conservative, I did however, vote for him twice. Given the alternatives, I think I spent those two votes in the best possible way I could.

Despite my not being a fan, I will miss him.

I will miss him for two different reasons;

#1 I do believe he has worked hard to keep this nation safe since America was attacked on September 11th, 2001. I believe he acted in our best interest with the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. I believe he acted in the best interest of the citizens of those two nations as well.

#2 January 20th, 2009 we begin our transition into a European nation. The actual transition began many years previous, up until now however, it has been like the rollercoaster car being slowly pulled up the incline.

The slow, if sometimes jerky ascent, is over and our inclination is now on a downward grade heading straight into a very European like Socialism.

Gravity is about to take over, hang on.
